First Berlin Production Equipment, New Largest Supercharger Location, Daimler Emissions
"Our here, and today we have a super charger network update, which is nice. Little throwback for those of you that have listened to the podcast for a long time I used to do those every day at the start of the podcast. We also have some news on Berlin paint a small little updates slash rumor. I would call it on Battery Day and the news on Daimler Nikola Motor as. Well. Tesla stock with another really strong day to day even though it was relatively quiet news wise finishing up seven point two percent to four hundred and forty nine dollars seventy six sense that compared to the Nasdaq up one point two percent we'll start off with these super charger news. This is coming from Brian Mac se on twitter, who is a long-time listener and I believe Patriot supporter of. The podcast who happen to come across a super charger network location under construction near Firebaugh California. As far as I can tell, this location had not yet been noticed. So upon Brian tweeting these out Tesla Motors Club Forum members did some digging on this and they were actually able to find that the permit for the site as well as planning documents for sort of a conglomerate travel center at. This location those documents disclosed that Tessa. We'll have fifty six spots for Tesla charging at this travel center. Assuming each of those spaces has a super charger associated with it. fifty-six chargers would put this as the largest superchargers location in North America and possibly in the world surpassing cattleman city in the United States at forty chargers and believe in China, there are a couple locations that have fifty chargers. So. Pretty exciting this location is between San Francisco and La driven miles. It's about two hundred and thirty miles from La and about one hundred and fifty from San Francisco. It's not clear if these will be all version three superchargers but I'd have to imagine that they would be and as far as other features go. It looks like about two thirds of them thirty eight of the fifty six. will be pull through hopefully accommodating the use of a trailer and making things a bit easier for the cyber truck and potentially also accommodating the semi of course, cincy unveil of the semi. We haven't heard much more about Tesla's mega charger plans. So hopefully, we get a bit of an update on that during battery debt. Right next today is an update on Gigabytes Lynn gigafactory underscore four on twitter. Has Been following. The gigafactory development closely looks like some equipment has started to arrive, and some of that equipment carries branding for Geico Tikey Shah? which is a paintshop solutions provider based in Milan Italy. There's also some signing there that is co branded between that company and desolate GEICO take show describes their approach by saying quote innovation is our weapon of choice were constantly increasing the technological possibilities in. Order to meet the needs of the most demanding customers in a highly competitive sector and quote they also seem to be heavily focused on sustainability and they're their paintshop operations. They have a project called the party's project, and they say quote with the Party's project launched in two thousand, five Geico Kotecki show was the world's first company to offer zero environmental impact paintshop reducing consumption by seventy percent and. So. Without really knowing much more about the company does he pretty good fit for Tesla we know Tesla has pretty big aspirations with the shop and gigabyte Lin Yuan talked about it many times and even setting Matt aside, it's good to start to see some production equipment on the grounds of Giga Berlian and though I haven't seen it yet. Maybe this gives us another milestone to compare the progress with Giga Shanghai from what I can. Tell, it looks like paintshop equipment started being put in place at Giga. Shanghai. In early to mid August of two thousand, nineteen with production of course, then starting about four months later. So if that's the case, if Berlin falls a similar time line that could potentially project out to start production and January probably best to keep expectations for later than that but I do think it's helpful to keep an eye on how those timelines compare all Right next up today is something that could end up being completely nothing but I thought it was at least interesting enough to share earlier today Fred Lammert over at electric tweeted out a couple of images of him holding a pretty significantly sized battery cell and Fred Ask if anyone has seen this battery cell before or you have some information about them, please reach out to him. A says also by the way, this new cell May. Or may not have been made by Tesla I don't really have much speculation to add this. A couple of people on twitter were saying that it does look like a tablets design which we've talked about and past episodes. But really just pointing out to say could be something to keep an eye out for the next couple of days if electric is able to you dig up a little bit more information on whatever this ends up being. Last couple of pieces of news here. Today I on Daimler Daimler has reached a settlement with the US government to pay one and a half billion dollars and settlements and penalties to the US and California State to resolve allegations of Daimler using emissions test cheating software to conceal the actual emissions from vehicles even with the settlement, and despite the fact that engineers at the EPA found software designed to cheat the emissions tests. Damore denies wrongdoing saying quote as stated in the consent degrees the. Class Action Settlement the company denies the authorities allegations as well as the class action plaintiffs claims and does not admit any liability to the United States. California plaintiffs or otherwise and quote. So I don't know kind of disappointing to see a settlement of that nature that doesn't require the admission of fault with such seemingly strong evidence against Daimler right lasting today is a quick update on Nikola Motors. It sounds like from the comments yesterday that most of you preferred that I don't do significantly. Deep dive on this budget stick to the high level updates, which I'm totally fine with if Trevor Milton wanted to come back on the PODCAST, I would probably do that. Otherwise, we'll stick with these updates anyway today the Wall Street Journal and other outlets are reporting that the Justice Department has started to also investigate Nikola Motors due to the allegations that they had misled investors by making exaggerated claims about their technology I know that sounds similar to
The ECBs Former Vice-President Explains The Historic Step That Europe Just Took
"True CEOS thinking we don't really talk that much about Europe these days. I mean, I guess not in relation to the the heady days of the eurozone debt crisis. Now we don't, but also I feel like this particular crisis at least some of our episodes, you know, obviously, we talk a lot in the bed context the US context, of course, know talked about Hong Kong and Asia and Asia supply chains in China and so forth stills like we've focused a little bit less on how this current crisis is playing out in the Europe. Yeah I think that's right I. Guess the implication is that maybe this has been unfair in some respects because there has actually been something very interesting going on in Europe at the moment. Yeah. I mean, for one thing you know there's a good argument to be made Europe at least relative to the US, if not necessarily Asian countries has done a pretty decent job overall of suppressing the virus self and you know for years during the euro area crisis, they're always people fiscal policy. Fiscal Policy Missing. You gotta spend more gotTa get the Germans to spend more and you know maybe this time it looks like they're actually doing. Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking. So we have the announcement of a big deal seven, hundred, fifty, billion euros worth by the EU to fund on long term recovery. Fund for the Eurozone and that's a big deal because as you point out, everyone's been talking about fiscal stimulus but it looks like the euro-zone is finally going ahead and doing it. Right and so this of course raises questions and it's a theme that we've definitely had a lot on on our podcast, which is, is this offer something bigger for the post-crisis period? So sports, it's well known that know there's a lot of money being spent by governments all around the world including the US. But the question mark is okay when the crisis phase is over the government's just retrench or does this become a sort of new macroeconomic stabilization model? That's a theme that we've had dozens of times but it's particularly important to New York, in context I think because people have sort of identified the lack of fiscal burden sharing his sort of a basic architectural tension or flaw within. Euros. Yeah I think that's exactly right. How does the I don't want to say the intrusion of fiscal stimulus but how does the arrival of fiscal stimulus on the scene actually reshape the way that monetary policy works and I? Guess we should also mention that the is also in the midst of a of another really important project which is rethinking. How it targets inflation. So we have all of this going on simultaneously real existential questions for the role of the European Central Bank. Absolutely well, I'm very excited. We have a fantastic guest to talk about all of this we are going to be talking with Vito comes don. So he is the former vice president of the European Central Bank from two thousand, Ten may twenty eighteen. He's now a professor at Navarra University in Madrid out the perfect guest to discuss all this. So without further ado, let's bring him in a veto. Thank you very much for joining us. So are you happy to not being a policymaker in this time or you? Do Miss being at the ECB during such an extraordinary moment. Well, it's always difficult to get out of you know executive responsibilities and I. Of course, I would not say that I, am Epi at the out or unfortunate circumstances of the covy. The shock we are again in a very important periods of policy making but. Me Europe as been doing well I think in these episodes. Better than in the previous episode of two, thousand. Ten to two thousand twelve. Just to start out with walking the significance of the deal that was agreed, this seven, hundred, hundred, billion euros you tweeted about it clearly, you think it's important. What's the significance. Well it establishes for president that are very meaningful. In, the first place it involves a decision to issue common European depth. The Commission will issue seven hundred and fifty billion of debt to fund these program, and that's the first. The second the point is that these is going to be distributed in the form of budget transfers and not loans to the country's. Third IT'S A big program to implement Wat- is a European fiscal policy stimulus to address a recessionary phase. India to be an economy, and that's also the first time that these happens at this level and fourth the distribution of the ballot transfers which. Correspond to a little more than half of the seven hundred and fifty billion is done in a way that it is not proportional to the size of each country. By two indeed benefits more the countries that's have lower level of leaving and higher unemployment. So there is a convergence play. There is solidarity aspect of these edits also quite new in terms of transfers to give you two examples on a proportional basis, Italy would be entitled to fifty billion, but the they are getting eighty billion. Right as Germany, you'll be entitled to ninety six billion in proportional terms, but is getting only twenty seven. So these four points put together constitute the indeed very important precedents and babs, and do we all hope so that it will be a sign of things to happen. If again, there will be a stressful situation in the European economy, and that's a very important element for everyone the notion that when there is a very stressful social economic situation Europe, steps up and two x decisions to fight the recession and does not leave behind any of the member countries. It's a big message for the future and I think markets are really beginning to injury injuries what these means And we see that already but it will take time of course, perhaps for the markets by Geico anglo-saxon markets to overcome. Lingering, doubts about the European project.

"The gates. Legal after work I. Guess we're leaving their coming. I guess after work. Right. There was a guy on a nineteen, ninety, two, CR five, hundred. There was a guy with no numbers on a Yamaha like on a Wisey? To fifty two stroke like. You would hate him because he had all mix match here. And I'm just like the track. Is Garbage with water audit. And God bless these dudes ripping around. They're just ripping. They're all in the main track, the are rem or anything you know. And there's Craig was out there doing a motoo. Christian Reagan. Start to four thirty. Am I guess because it one, it's rougher. It's safer and there there's people that actually show up for like a second part of the day because most of the people that like you WanNa, ride when it's good show up, it's packed sketchy because they're shit everywhere, people are going everywhere now it's evening time. Attacked out, you learn a little bit more probably a little bit safer because it's rough. So you're slowing down and there is dudes blue-collar home. He's out there. There's a guy on CR five hundred. Out there they're just yeah. Riding in the studio, crap. It's it's phenomenal and so and I've I've been. visor tip to those guys like a little. I'm not doing that. No, I'm not. I'm only there because a GEICO. Honda. Year. Armadillo in that. Up Out because I have to say I have a Mixed bag with Glen and over the years I don't like the people that run it. Always I don't like the things do don't world race. It's unsafe I. don't care about they don't care about anything but money blah, blah, Blah Blah Blah, but you cannot find tracts with hills like that anywhere almost anywhere in the world and the last two times I've been there one with again. you boredom o.`Neil, gear, 'cause a big ruckus with jt. Yes, and our two two. To fifty. And then you and I went for. What did we go for your down here? Doing some stuff? Pro Circuit show upstairs shop, clean video known stairs. Yeah. Yeah, yeah anyways, and I got to say we got. I wrote right at eight or whenever they opened and I had a really good time at that track the last two times, I've been there very enjoyable days at that because it's it's semi smooth. It's water prep, pretty good, and so I was Kinda back on, Helen? I'm back on the Helen and and this is the dilemma that you have with Helen because you will have good days. You'll ride good will come home satisfied, and then you're so stoke, you will go back the next week and in is not the same track that you were at one week layout thing. After. Thing, and it's the way they prep some days though prep it deeper have more water. Now, this track is open Tuesdays Thursdays Saturday Sunday. So. There's moisture in it constantly, but if they rip it really good, and of course, there's not three hundred guys there. You'll have an epic day that day I went with Gant or you 'cause all the controversy with O'Neal gear I ate shit. On, wall jumped into the wall. And broke Muffler and my helmet and couldn't walk for a while because a Hematoma on my leg, and I, still had a great day. I went back out after that crash. That's how much fun I was having and that was. The potential the Helen is there It's just just not consistent. Vet Weekends, and it wasn't there yesterday. It's much like a woman Steve. You'll have great with her, and then some days are not as good. Yeah, I guess so. Cool right. Anything else. What if this turns? What if this other factory team lets us right. Turns into. We could start a whole new page on POLKA DOT COM just factory by. Tests. Hey if you're listening, you're another factory, we're happy. We're here. We're available. But the Stop Watch on us. We're fine with it. Yeah. Yeah. That was good times. And to Mumford and Schroeder, soy about any kind of damage to your bikes. Carson was stuck that you wrote his bike was. Yeah. took a video. Yeah, he's yeah. I. Didn't get Shit. He took the videos of you. So that tells you how I like. Mumford could do the Monkey Lancia feeling. I don't like a lot of and don't like amateurs you approve of Mumford and. Other kid, no, I approve of Ham Acre and I've never met him. Okay. Everybody tells me. He's like Super Humble. Super Cool. Great family. Everybody says that I like him, I, like Mumford and you like Yoder. Yoder because Yoder's dad was cheering me on the last time. We wrote, Helen His dad was windmilling me.

"Of that. So. And again. Thanks to Josh and everybody GYCO team mechanics were super cool. Everybody School. Tell story real quick. Yeah. Hold on. Yeah. So basically. One of the things that I noticed right away I told you and ask you this you figure. You, figure there's about twenty pounds difference between my production Yamaha. which has to tie bolts by the way. To Tie those at. seat. Yeah. I think what are they put? One I just had to six. Why would you put them on your bike? I. Thought. It was cool. So. You figure twenty pounds even seen the GEICO race bike in my four fifty. Okay. Is that what you figure? You KINDA. told me that I was wondering because the weight limits to twelve for possible thinks to fifteen. Okay. They're probably not on the weight limit. They're probably to twenty ish. Yeah. there. Probably five pounds over and whatever my ways to forty. Yeah. I would say if it's the GEICO bike and nearby gets over twenty. Yeah. So for me man like getting onto the F. and then having that lightweight like that was pretty cool. Right away I'm like, oh. Yeah. Like this thing. So light like the finish line. Jumps you come into that right hander after the finish line jump and I remember coming in one time and one line on the left was really rough, and I'm like Oh like I. saw it a quarter mile a new line that I. hadn't seen the lap before or. I'm GonNa, go that one and just you know turn it, let off, turn it no problem. The I would have been going like I had enough speed that I S- plow through plow due to the outside rough wine. That's just a classic example of how it was and so people think like. A year heavier dude to these are still capable. Even production ones are still capable to haul your ass around the track at a good level. But now you've got these bikes at handle better, and then let's face it. That's. Their stiffer bikes, it's going to be better for you in the long run. So anyways. What's your story? Well, the story is Steve. Felt like you know we had to do video. We didn't say this Kyle Cowan's out there. He's doing the spectrum series. They have you guys have seen that I'm sure they follows the GEIKO team around false Christian craig around does these cool videos and? Oh by the way. Go ahead Craig was out there with us. Yes. I. Cut Him off one point. Out in front of her on the track. Off The track onto the track and field off the track dot and came torpedoing to yeah, and then he grabbed breaks, you know, yeah and I miss them, and then you jumped right in front of job. Right? In front of him, we got a pitcher. Sweet. At. Okay. So we're doing video and part of the process is, Hey, you know we gotta get action shots. We gotta do this. We gotta get some stuff in for the video So Kyle's out there and says, go, Hey, did you get enough stuff? And he's like, no. Get enough stuff. So we need to go shoot some more so. This time about this time I'm. Getting, my shit back on getting ready to go back out. So I can help kyle gets more video and I'm looking for for Steve Well. This is about the time when he's talking politics with Ryan and get get get get chaotic. So I go. Hey Man, are you interested today with the fuck? Are you doing? Getting into suffer but the deep state and like the deep government, the world one world government to the and then at some point, he's like I, don't even understand it. and. I'm like, okay. Well, so are we argued about anyways? So I finally get his ass out there. I'M YOU KNOW CIRCLE JERKING AROUND FOR THE CAMERA Steve? I go. Hey, we're going to do to passes each little area. We're GONNA, move around the track and we'll get the whole track eventually. So we made it halfway around the track. Steve. Stopped his by came over tomatoes a we. We done this. What you said? Are we good? Are we good hold on? Let me finish. You're not making your your exaggerating. No, half the track. What do you mean half the track because we start? Oh, by Talladega right, and you weren't even out there yet. So I did that section. Oh, I went up the hill. Did that sexual I was doing that for Dallas? You're taking stills over there. Yes, with Dallas. Right. So I was out there, but I was doing the straightaway now. I, was doing that left-hander before you jump onto the Talladega. That's where that shot came from Dallas captured an epoch shot of. It is a really good shot. That's a cover shot. That's your toes pointed in everything's good. Yeah, anyways. So I was doing that hold on. Let me finish. Steve looks at Kyle, the video guy and me is, are we good and I go? No, we gotta do this section in that section. Then he's done, he's. He's like you got enough. That's good and Steve just rides. Our he leaves a guy looks at me like. Is really leaving I go. Oh Yeah. He's done. Yeah. A. Long. Day. It was G H, at six at six. It was six o'clock. It was. It was six. PM. And I know, I was on a guy, go bike. But I was I, am not going to keep circling. First of all. You're really matters in this test, you know the that's bullshit. WanNa, know what you say a for all the reasons I laid out like it doesn't really matter what I think or anything else. I don't have enough experience and I'm not fast enough. It's your the guy. Okay. I'm not the guy you want to know your because you're the average dude. Average toots should be a glenallen six PM. We'll talk about that average dudes should be gone by nine, thirty ten. There's a lot of people out there at six, pm. But. Anyway. So yeah. No, and also to like cowling, but his videos are just they're overdone. No. Great. That's fine. You say great. I say. Overdone. He, he's very good at his job. He's a nice guy. Don't get me wrong this when you watch videos like he has way too much stuff like what give me an example. Just you know he's GonNa blow slow. He's GonNa show me on, you like at. A one frame, a second you know going into like we're good. We're good. Now. That's I'd also like onto Tubby, I don't look good anyways on a bike like you know what I mean. So he got enough of me. That's just the way he went about it. Yeah. Let's go. Is like, okay. We're going to do this and then that one over there and I'm like, yeah, that's what we're gonNA, do like Nah. Nah I think you've got enough got another. Back with sore and I had enough of G. H. at that point. I did find a sweet new line that I was like Ashley Bukuru. Out. That that ended quick. He wanted to ride later. He's like now so. But thanks again to Kyle and and Jeff Shack. Josh, and Everybody Guy, go for this opportunity. Hope you guys enjoy the video coming out. GEICO team. We're going to have a little teaser video. You're going to write a story. We're going bubbling up and and another factory reached out to us. Yes. Today this could start something. Yes. This could start other factories said, hey, that looked like you know what if we do this? Right? You are like, yeah, let's go I'm in. This is great. This is all great for me. I will be surprised though that the GEICO team heaven forbid, if they run into injuries down the line this summer, we don't get at least a call. At. least at least a are you in shape, you know at least you've been reading look at, we were hooked some GPS's in. There's GPS on those bikes. are going, know our laptops they and they're going to be impressed. They are. They're gonNA. Be Green Program. What are we thinking so? To wrap this podcast up. So. Thanks again to all those guys. This is what you touched on this earlier. Thank you. Fuck you. I'm done. It's just good. So yeah. We're out there at six six o'clock. Yes. This track is like Baghdad after USA bombed it. I mean with water on it. It's it's Beirut. It's the coalition of forces dropping bombs on Baghdad. It's worse than Heather, on our worst day, it's terrible and. I gotta say like I mentioned this to you like there guys coming in.

"I could hit the right. Okay and get up I, could get the front end up up up the hill and you know what? I, mean, this is a two four, the of course, but. I have such little experience. I was thinking I wouldn't be able to get the front end up coming up a hill, right, but it was it was fun. So and I liked Carson's motor better as I said, yeah. It took me a session or to get in it, but I've always felt like I ride to fifties better because I can ride a more aggressive and push. So when I was I had a lap time on my Yamaha set, and then I went on Carson Spike and man it was. Late. Late in the day was better. Yeah. Just because I can hit the bumps harder. Obviously, I don't know how to test my my Alma sucks balls. So. The Carson's bike was much better. It's just for me. It's it gives you confidence knowing that you have. Every. freaking thing on there that works and they are not putting stuff on that doesn't work. They had me do a couple of tests for them while I was there. So they had a a skid plate. So I tested out for them and they wanted to recall RV. Yeah, he would've told them. But it was cool. I. Did some stuff for them and they we tried a different high-speed settings for Carson See if he can get some more hold up in a shock and. But. Man The that show a stuff's really impressive. I, know there's bits and pieces inside of that stuff that you. Obviously, you guys listening can't get has factory triple clamps. I'd I'd like that they went to twenty four offset versus twenty, two kinda mix that bike feel more planet either ride and. I, I wrote I wrote. Chattan Timmy's race by back in the day Theo frame four fifties NYC too. I wrote. Ferries, cakes, x four, fifty, super cost stuff on and outdoor bike, and now I've written a Geico bike. So that's my race bike experience and I rode like nick ways and Kelly. Smith said. All right. But. So, I'm been a factory by since Neri, awards bike call out of factory by. If you want to know, I would've wrote ferries Cowie in eight or factory. Yes. That's full factor. Yes. The same thing applies to these GEICO. Said applied to those bikes. You have to ride them heart. That's how they. That's how they work and I was not doing that they were still fine. Don't get me wrong, but that is. For everybody who dreams of a factory bike, you have to have the speed to make the factory by work. This is what I'm saying and RV's point. He, pins it through some bumps that I don't. So he needs more hold up like. These guys are hitting bumps fast at speed and they don't want that chassis to twitch and move so you need to have. More. Hold up which in for you guys listen there which what happens is that's less comfort. So you're getting more performance but less comfort. So in the world of pro Racing Sas, what you want, you need performance, I had one sketchy moment on Schmo. Does rear end coming down the hill got kicked road the front end a little bit kind of charges before the hip jump yes. Yes, I saw that you did Delaware doing video was. Came Down.
"geico" Discussed on The Steve Matthes Show on RacerX
"Character, it's still had that nice linear long character. Go into the Chassis Carson been really working with the GEICO team and really trying to go. Because he came off of his amateur bike. So they didn't have a kit level stuff in their amateur bike. So once you go to the pro bike, you have this a level kit, factory ish suspension, and it's a little bit different. So he's been really trying hard with the team and show To work somewhere different like he didn't like Shimoda setting. He didn't like Jay Martin said and he wanted his own stuff. So. What I noticed about Carson's is it has a lot of up, but from being a guy that writes Honda's a lot. I know how rigid they can be and they run these factory Honda clamps. So they run twenty, four millimeter offset. That's a little bit longer and I was expecting it to be a little bit harsh rigid. And just have that Honda character I was blown away. How much comfort was in that chassis. I could jump in and those bumps and coming off from. Yamaha I'm like, fuck. The way better like I can slam into stuff. It's really dead feeling. It was balanced. So overall for me, the most fun I've had on that bike was because of the chassis I could late in the corners, I can slam into bombs. It just goes where he wanted to go and you still have enough meat to get out of there. I did have to learn how to ride a two fifty again because, yeah, I was in third gear and corners and I was like, Oh, Shit I, that's I struggle with that the most like I was going inside. Okay. First of all the insides of the bottom of the hills are smoother. And shallow roots. Yeah. So they're easier smoother. So that's where I'M GONNA? Go except I'm on a to fifty. So I can't exactly pivot and get carry my speed up these hills at Glen. Helen. So that wasn't working out very well for me. So then I was kind of trying to go wide. That, whole thing for me was a huge adjustment and I, honestly in that little time I wrote I, never got it down I. Never felt. Yeah ripping great. I did when I wrote out of the TRACO onto the start straight onto Talladega GEICO Honda Yeah I. Felt like raising my middle fingers will. So what's up I want to Geico? Honda Circus. All that. But I didn't, but it did make me feel good like I felt good. I know how you say, I'm GonNa find you feel is watching you wrote out of the. New. Tryout, maybe gyco what's trial has trial. So, I liked that part of it. That was cool I. Know You said about a five in my whole life probably at A. Five five five. Eight five inside your helmet. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. No one really saw that. No. Yeah. So that part was cool. But I never got down and you have so much more time on these things in your so much more better than I am. I just never felt comfy, but it was more of the to fifty F. feeling issue. Yes. Because I've just a vet guy I just go inside that. Turn my blue crew point to a straight line, and so that part was for me the difference, but I don't care. Go Honda right I don't really care. So. We stopped at the first one. Yeah. So when I when I did Carson's you're out there, you came a little later, but you're out there I pulled in. There is a group of guys which is I'm used to that feeling when I tasked with Honda, there's the five or six dudes and you you talk to them some download information that I felt from Carson's bike, you pull up and. You, under when you use your diamond waste big problem. Big Problem. That's what you do when you walk right up. So we're like, okay. Download Information and I go before I just stopped talking when you got I, want you to feel or know anything that was going on with Carson. So. We swapped bikes. I was on Carson's. and. Then you went out on Carson's bike I, want on Joe's and what I felt on Joe's, and if you guys are you know you know, Carson and Joe Joe's a really. I want to say almost poor sell like typewriter. He skips hops smooth. Really. He's about one hundred and twenty pounds, right? Probably. But he's a real smoother either so I was expecting his stuff to be a little bit softer which it was. It moved a little bit more in the stroke. It was farther down for me just. So everyone knows we didn't check, SAG? Do we just wrote them how they came? So I was a little low on the rear I bought him to doubt so. But Joe's engine has more bottom to mid range and what I call recovery. So if if we are in third gear in the corner I could fan the clutch a little bit and it just gets back up in that meet quicker. But. It didn't have the pool up on top. So then we get back, he wrote Carson's and Steve, great job. He'd he'd said the exact same way and you got it. You got it. You know you're just like, Hey, this thing doesn't pull as far as Carson's and I was I was like a happy dad moment for their. Carson's definitely had more. Mid. To top and I liked it better. Joe's shifter brake. The jury was high. Joe's bars were wrote I. thought the different band, but they were just rotated back I. Was it comfy on Joe's set up. Or northern motor because I was leaving it in in in whatever gear I was in right, and so cartons top felt better and Carson's bars and cockpit felt better than Schmo does for me, right? So. That's immediately and then something's going on their clutches, Keefer. Keeper. We're not just trying to get to the bottom of it. They weren't really telling me much now and immediately when I rode first lap I, knew exactly what they had in there and I pitched it to them. And they're like. Them. Like. They, they talk like, and then you can always tell something going on with test guys because when you ask them, they'll look at you like deer in the headlights and then the look over at the other dude. But like now, it's the same. But as they say, it's not the same. The other guy will come in and whisper something in his ear, and then they'll talk for five or six seconds. And then you you expect in the say, okay. No. Yeah. It's the same. All Bullshit on. Okay. 'cause I even felt it more. To the track on the track your but I felt what I felt and I'm like, okay. We got something going on the clutches here. So, and they did. I will say this, they had a different test cable on. Cable and Joe's clutch was a little bit. Harder. Again. So people know they're on a a special pro taper bar. I run that bar on Tam called his Zouqi race team bar. It's not available for the public, which is very flat and low profile usually when you go to A. Bar, that has a flat profile the. Crossbar. nope. Oh, this is just bar band. Usually when you have a flat bar, you have a lot of sweep. This is very flat and straight. So I like that Bendelac and. Carson and those guys usually cut them. But now they're running them longer and wider. Some special JOE's bike definitely didn't fit me as well for me as heavy as I am. And a slow as I am. And, these are pro rider to fifty S I thought it would be. Slower. Than it was dull spikes, slower idea because of my weight I'm like look I'm not. You know I'm too fat for this thing. And then I thought they'd be softer than they were and they're both I. Thought they were both stiffer than thought. They'd be for my way and they're both faster than I thought. They'd be just because I thought myself. I'm so happy for the sing and I'm and I'm going on the inside of the turn and like if.

"My bike. So. He rides. He's like you better. You better get out there. I get get screwdriver someone clippers. So I, get out there I. Walk out there. He does one lap. I can't ride this thing the. The bar mounts are on the front hole. I can't. Is. Really, adamant about the front on the show a few weeks ago with you. Yeah, and you guys got into their. Yeah. I'm just not a front whole guy I'm expressing also thinks you're crazy, right? Yeah. Stock Production. Yama comes with the Mount in the front hall now RV. In on this dude is a fricken five four and he likes it in the front hall, whatever. So she said and good one. He rides. It doesn't like that he comes up folks too soft. This whole thing soft. I can't read. I can't push. Go. Go five in everything five and everything. So I cranked it in go, he goes back out. And, low. Speed. And he doesn't not to lapse and he got one good buck, and then you could just see I was like, oh, he's out on this. So he comes back in and I knew my fork was soft, but I didn't really have that much problem with my shock thought, my shock was the firm. And he come in is a everything soft. You need to go spring up on the fork. Spring on the rear. I'm telling all your listeners. You don't know what the hell you're doing. Yeah. He he said you weren't there. He's like hey. Keefer doesn't know how to test. Here we go. He's tested for the race team for three weeks, and now he's the best ever. So he asked him, how much do you weigh are? One eighty something he's like, but here's the thing. You know when I ride, I'm going for it. I'm just out here cruising around. So must have better. Be have some hold up and I'm like RV I'm not as fast as you for one hundred, Sixty, eight pounds. So I ride a little different than you. He's hammer and he's rear steering so. We had a little disagreement on. So yeah, nothing really worked. I should never had gone by Russia's back down He. He did get on his own bug at the end of the day to I. Think he did he did some ops on his own biking. Okay. Yeah. I should have wrote his bike. Just, come in and be like, what are you doing things? Trash things garbage. So yeah, he turned to me like. Hey Keyboard is an auto test. How am I going? All right. That's all right. So so that's where we're at. So that's where we're at. So if I was a racer. Done. So. Yeah. It was a fun time and in just to get the new bike and everything else and and all that. So thanks the thanks to everybody who bought tickets by the way if you're listening to buy tickets. Thank you appreciate that. So the GEICO tests. So I went out I did a moto quote, Unquote Emoto? I did twelve minutes on my bike. I kind of hurt my back like right away. Something happened like in the mid back area. Let's get to clinch Hell Ross is. You can't get out of the holes. So I'm like right away on my. Man Like Muscle. Right. So I'm like, okay, well I pull in gender some stretches or whatever. Because they're going to ride this coughing at some point and you got two bucks read. Yeah Yeah. Okay. So did that came in? Sat, there for a little bit eight. Some tacos did stuff. It's, and then Josh is like, Hey, we're done and it was only like a one o'clock. One fifteen, right? It wasn't. Oh, it was too too. Yeah. frigging Oregon for. Argued after. I was little. So anyways, I thought that we got on a little early. So then I got over there and the whole team was sitting there you already out on. On Schmo does bike I went on? Mumford. Spike the whole team. was there. kind of nervous. They're all watching the everyone's watching me and I have written a to the F.. The about this in two thousand and two, we got to do a magazine test. I don't know who it was. I think it was. Because I think it was Bashar. Somebody came to Red Bud and the day after the National I'm sorry. After the second motos in to that red hat red bud. Okay. They wrote all of our race bikes, Nick Way. Larry Ward Kyle. Lewis Somebody I. Think. It was I think it was Bashar, track was hammered. In PREPA, just there you go. Yeah, and so I wrote, Larry. Wards to to fifty F. that day right? Two, thousand and two Yamaha oil tank carburetor. That was the last time. I wrote it to fifty. After that I had a Y Z to fifty, two stroke. Then I got four fifty and then I. Got Rid of that and I, didn't ride until you harass me basically legally illegally harass me. Honestly, it didn't take much persuading when we agreed to do this. I, didn't know you were going to ride it gyco yeah. Oh. And you're just like, yeah, I'm going to ride it. I'm like Oh. Okay. Cool. Yeah. Because I just thought you know what? I? Mike okay, I I. Don't know what I'm doing out there. As far as testing I. don't write to d-fs, but GEICO Honda is offering me to ride their bike like I need to do this. Right like even if you know whatever and we brought Dallas over photos Dallas, ears. So Josh is like, Hey, the bikes ready. So I go over there. The whole team standing there. There's Mumford Spike. And then the kill switch has a three second thing. So if you go to shut it off a hold on for three seconds so safety things with the guys hit, it's not going to shut off. So I'm okay and I'm like what else and they're like I said, how different are these bikes like? Offsets a little different motor settings a little different. They weren't. Yeah. They don't WanNa. Tell you don't really want to tell me. So there's before you got to the area. I already left out and I go. Hey. Like. Hey, you wanNA ride both and I said, yes. But I just said, don't tell me anything. Don't tell me what the differences are just. Let me give feedback. Differences because in in the production world blind testing, that's how we do it. So I wanted to go do it too correct way. So that's what we did. So you you have a ton of time on a Honda to fifty production, yeah bike. We'll start with you because your your opinion is the only one that really matters. RV. Darvish so I wrote Mumford. It's well, let's get into schedule I. wrote him I for about ten minutes. And then I wrote Schmo does for about five or six, and then I took a break. Then argued with politics with Rv, and then I got back on sh motos for photos and video, and I did a few more laps as well on that. So, that's my schedule Iro. So I probably wrote the two bikes. Thirty minutes. Maybe Max Twelve. That's how long I think probably about thirty minutes. So what about you? So I got on Carson's bike just because Carson, I ride with Carson a little bit unknown from his he lives up not lives, but has a track up here and he's like, Hey, can you ride my bike and also before I left her like hey? You know some of these guys really fast racers, but maybe aren't the best test guy. So it'd be kind of cool if you kind of you can sign off on some of these things like, Hey, are they too far left field? Is it good? You know? So obviously, I'm not as fast as I ride different, but I can kind of Pick my way around and say, Hey, where are these guys and I know Carson and how he writes? So I took off on Carson's bike. And the first thing that I noticed is from the production Honda. There's not a lot of Torque. If you guys have a Honda to fifty, you know what I'm talking about is not a lot of meat download, but man it, it goes from the mid to top over. It has a lot of that. So this. GEICO Honda has more Torque I'm not saying it has monster Yamaha Ish Torque, but it has more pulling power down low, and then after that man that you can let this sucker. Eat from third fourth gear. I used fourth actually a lot. I. Don't know if you've got an fourth gear at all, but man, I can. Use fourth gear. Very, it's very usable, which is rare in a two fifty, like you're in third gear most the time in fourth for a short amount of time, I used fourth gear at Glen Helen a lot. So that's how usable and good the power band. So I was impressed with the engine. Honestly, like I thought, it would be a little bit faster than what it was. But for me riding a Honda most of the time, I appreciated the.

"Honda. The team that just wanted to supercross championship reached out to us. Yes, and said, hey, would you like to ride some race bikes? We? We know you're hardship Stephen Chris, and we would like to offer up. Our cycles for you to ride. And I wrote a little bit about this and racer x and what was cool not to jump ahead here. But. It was cool because usually when you have these factory by tests that give you an allotment of time, they're like, Hey, do this. Before Oh. Yeah. Okay. The only. Give you like, okay. Hey, man, you can ride it thirty minutes and I'm like. Okay. So by the time you take photos and get your shit. All done. You got ten minutes to really pound out some laps and then you gotta give it back. Not, the case here, we wrote it. I was shocked when he? When Josh, Josh, Right Yeah Josh came up to me and he wants team manager. T manager goes. All right. The the rest afternoon Jauregui bikes I'm like he told me. We brought some chicken barbecue and everything you guys just ride. Yeah. I was like dude, I don't know if you were there. But my eyes went being I lit up I'm like. Are you serious? So very cool. It's like once in a lifetime opportunity to do that. So yeah, it was. It was a good track a little bit of. Mexico, you'll know that a team that Shell go unnamed but Ron Jewish marsh may sing is said, we could ride their bikes, their race bikes, correct. They pulled four whole shot. Are they pulled all four guys on start at Wash U. Last year and we love those bikes I am blue and I thought it would be so amazing to try one of those bikes and it was all arranged in done and everything else, and we were looking forward to it, and it Kinda wasn't happening right and it wasn't happening and it wasn't happening, and then another media outlet got the test their bikes, and it wasn't wasn't wills. Fault. It was another gentleman's. Hall. Wasn't happy. Because, we went through official channels. So y'all wasn't happy and no one was really happy. and. So we're like, okay, well, we. We were offered a chance to ride it after that. Always. Yeah. Yeah. They said we could, and we're like Nah I'm out. Right? I was so mad at the situation not because you know we didn't write it. That's fine like I'm no one who cares. But just tell us if you promise something for a year and a half, and if you can't do it I'm good with that just. Just let us know. Hey, man not going to work out for whatever reason got problems with you. The problems in me? Hey, just don't. WanNa. Do it no problem our respect, but nothing was said, and then you get DMZ get tax say someone else's riding. It's just it's just Kinda. Lame. So so on the last day, did us a favor? We had a red bike to ride and. GEICO said. Listening to the show reached out and said, well, you can ride our bikes. Yep. No problem. We'll let you ride our bikes whenever it works out and and then they. Shutdown happened, and we kind of you know they were busy. With the parks but they respect and said, here you go. Let's let's test the thing. So we rode the test bikes of Carson Mumford and Joe Schmo two. Great. So the team came out. They were testing with those guys in the morning at Glen, Helen in they tell us to come around. So I, don't they come around camera onto Steve, let's start around two. And if you know Glenallen two clock I, I don't ride at all very. Say Okay. That's that's A. Very rarely. Yes. I haven't written for two months because I was up in Salt Lake for a month or whatever, and then it's been hot as balls and. Glen Helen at eight. AM till about nine thirty. Fun Fun. Yeah. But nine, thirty, I gotTA GET Outta there. So Josh said, Hey, you could probably ride them around to. Like, to equates to probably like four o'clock at a vet national. Keep in mind. So I wrote a tougher class at the world vets. Because I switched my classes from my age group to plus forty of the schedule because of the plus forty five was at the end of the day. Right. And I say, Oh no, I'm not riding Helen at the end of the day. I'll go and plus forty because I'll be done by the second moto of the day in the second run a second set of Moto. That's how much I wanted to avoid Glen Helen at four thirty, right which. is also what heather acts like sometimes, which I'm used to. So so we got there around noon. We'll talk about the Justin to giving them the by but. So I wrote my Y Z four fifty. And it was already beat down. It was pretty trashed that I mean again, nationals coming up right. A pros out there. Everyone's out test, and so if you guys don't know the difference near Glen Helen the normal Thursday without pro nationals, it's it's not bad news, not so bad. It's pretty good around then but. Pro National Time Berms, or blown out there pushed wide. So that means there's no good dirt. There's crisscrossing and every turn you can go inside the outsize. There's these low lines off the jumps that are half off the track that come back on the track. There's just shit going on everywhere. Yeah. So We had to do to drive the GEICO bikes and we agreed to do that. So. Back up a little bit before we go to do that. So we ran the Elsie Q. Yamaha challenge all year long raise over fifty, three, thousand dollars. It went to five privateers, Clayson Tacoma, the most money, and and the prize was a senator from folks apply. To generators from Yamaha. Second Prize, first. Prize was twenty twenty, four F. and from vortex to wars connection to guts to race tech to Michelin to roost to FM. F to everybody fx are everybody gave a package to this bike. So you would get a bike and you'll get it all done up so much. Yeah. and. So the winner. Justin. Lamb. Guy. From. Southern. California Marietta he bought four tickets the day of the draw, and we picked his name out random Marxism random eiser. He's got. and. So he it worked out that Yamaha's like you want to go on and he's like sure he rides adventure bike right now, he hasn't had a bikes. Fourteen. Fourteen. Six years, six years. And had a dirt bike since then and he showed up and Yamaha came out with Michael Rich with the bike and Ryan. Villa Poe as well. That's cool. Yeah. RV came out which was cool like he didn't have to do that. Right? Right. I won't talk about RV testing, your bike and. So, yeah, we give the in a brand new bike at the beginning of the day. kind of like right before the motives we did that at the beginning of the day took photos video will post it up on our social stuff and all that. But yeah, give it bikeway. That was cool. It's cool about Justin was. Usually. When these guys win the bike to pick up the bike and bounce just stayed in Rhode. Dude insane. MOTOS and he's Thursday again Thursday at noon has it wrote in six years. Got New bike. Doesn't even know what a forfeit. It feels like and go on the are Amtrak. No went straight on the main track, and I'm like I like this guy already cups speak running. Yeah. So Justin was cool. Had Old Ford pickup truck. Yeah. I like that. Yeah, I thought it was a cool thing for Yama, cool thing for you to do and. I was very appreciative at some point, just hanging out and RV are just arguing about politics. And he's calling me a liberal drunk and I'm calling him whatever and we're. Busting each other's balls, and he got like a live pulp show like segment. Got It. All right. He got a bike. got. US to fighting. tacos tacos. Yeah. No fix. They'll fix. Yeah. So experience. So that was really cool of Yamaha to do that and RV to come out and everything else and RV. Test Rode your bike. Yeah. So I was I was out Ryan doing some things with my stuff and getting ready for Loretta and like tracks, Rafal ride, my bike froggatt on the the Honda. And I noticed some things I need to work on. Saga. Hey RV. I. Know You've been testing the race bike ride.

In fact, the mayor says, they'll take legal action that the president does send in federal law enforcement. Every time we've seen the president do things that are illegal and unconstitutional.

NASCAR drivers rally around Bubba Wallace after noose incident
"Powerful scene before NASCAR's geico five hundred Monday evening at Talladega a day after a noose was found that the racing stall of NASCAR's only black driver Bubba Wallace all of Wallace's fellow drivers got behind this car pushed it to the starting grid in a show of unity NASCAR announced that the F. B. I.'s joining this investigation news incident the race was won by Ryan
Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four

Seven Generations - With Karl Dockstader (Oneida)
"Hello and welcome everyone and we're so glad to have you today. Joining me is Carl docstater and just to give you a little background on this guy he's a member of the United. Nation, and he's the program called for the four year Fellowship Center about four years ago. He and a colleague of his started a podcast called one dish one Mike, and since then it's transformed into a weekly on air radio show, and recently he. He became a recipient of Canadian Journalism Foundation CBC. Fellowship for his. Outstanding Work I've been on his show before the ever since our show started. We've communicated back and forth, and finally it's my delight to introduce this man, and on top of that all he's an avid buffalo bills fan, so I would like to give a big severely to Mr Pro docstater You're very kind to Gaydos in the youngest log into low to Jota, what's the? What can I do? GEICO Ajayi? That translates to many Ms Carl. Just kidding There's there's a lot more in there. that I I like to introduce myself with Mitch official name is often as possible because our our language is under threat. I think that using any language like even if you only know Golly, even if you only know gateway when you're saying goodbye to someone or or something similar to goodbye, or or if you're seeing Jawa, thank someone. I think that every bit of language revitalization is is important, so so thank you for for having me on your show I have a gigantic fan. If you go into the archives, you can find an episode where we interview Andrew Shannon I may podcasting Betsy Andrew and I think that it's really just forty five minutes of meat gushing lick offend will. So but but you're worth it I mean it, it's it's really be concept. Your show that that you're doing at I'm I'm glad to be on for for something. Maybe a little outside of the box of avoid normally, so they are having beats danger. It's it's outside of the box, but i. feel like when we started the show. This is more of what we wanted. It's easy to talk about dead people because if you. You get something wrong well. They're not around to defend themselves. What's really hard for me? Is from a loving history and background is a lot of times. We try as hard as we can to point out. The the members of the six nations are still around today. There's still a vibrant part of our communities. They still contribute still here at not not like two or three of them left and on our show I have to. To purposely save the holding. The schone are instead of the haughtiness. SCHONE did and a lot of times we use the past tense. I I apologize to it now. You know when you're talking about past historical events that happens a lot, but we'd like to point out all the contributions that people have made in the past, and how the influenced our history and culture and society, and so it's just good to have somebody from today. Today that can can speak for today. I know you're just one person I. Know You don't speak on behalf of all indigenous people on the continent. I know you don't speak on behalf of everyone from the Oneida nation. You probably don't speak on behalf of your family either. It's good to have other perspectives because Caleb. I realized that we're limited in our scope. I wanted to have somebody come on. That could give me an. Update, but just what is Oneida culture like today? And what are the issues that your people are facing today? And then I also WANNA. Look towards the future a lot of times we get bogged down today's issues. Today's Oracle stuff, and as this podcast is recorded as different, but I realized that years from now decades from now hopefully, when people are still listening to you and me working back through the archives that you know we can, we can look forward and see what what does the future stand? What does the to row treaty mean for both our peoples in the future going forward. So that's a long winded. Introduction, BUT I want to turn over your Harlan just give you really open ended just give me a background about yourself and your upbringing. Yeah, thank you, thank you for the opportunity again. I think that what you said is probably key at. If if you're just tuning in if tuning in because of me than you've heard me, say this before if tuning into your recoil, ledges, mystery podcasts, and you're hearing me for the. The first time I think it is important that we're hitting on that concept. The Ngoni people are are still here and I, even like like I had to check myself I was helping my daughter my my nine year old at the time ten year old daughter. Do you a project for history? And it's it's difficult to sift through the history texts and to see them. Talk about how we were as people like, say we. We are as a people like we were still doing. Ceremonies were still. I'm literally trying to grow white corn, even as we speak like I'm. I'm sitting here. Thinking created rain last night because we're not something that their lives in a textbook sitting on sitting on a shelf somewhere, that's something that we want to bring a so having opportunity to come on with you today to to really remind people that can onto says about about living. Living History. History is something we're still living right now is super cool I. one of the reasons I like to get on. This side of the microphone is is that I don't have to talk about myself, so it's it's different since since I now you're the one that's technically behind the Mike but I mean I can say is that it's What it really pride myself on is is activity in my own community. I went and I volunteered tirelessly from a friendship center work at the forgery native. Friendship Centre by day. I volunteered there before I worked there I volunteered at the other friendship center in our region, the Niagara Regional Native Center and that for everything we do is indigenous people I. Think I think it's really evaluated on a on a community level and I. think that's something that we've actively done. Is that individuals? Success is just not the metric. That's not the measurement for for who we are as. at least in in the community circles that I that I hang out so so for me. My production into community was movement called idle no more if you will see American listeners after how how familiar they'll be with that movement, but there was an effort in in two thousand, twelve, twenty, thirteen to to really got environmental measures to take away protection from wire to fundamentally changed the relationship between the government and indigenous people. In four women stood up and said that we're not going to be idle anymore. We will be idle, no more and we need to. We need to put a stop to this. And our people got behind those women and all of our people. It felt like like there was a total consensus in our community that had an off and I saw the seismic shift almost ten years ago. Where people like we have to do something so so for me, that was almost may may rebirth into community I was I was just living regular life, and you know trying to trying to hold down a good job trying to buy a house and worrying about the things that normal people. People worry about and then. I saw this groundswell of activity in our community, and it really opened. My Eyes Act that we need to work together to federal sell change
Seven Generations - With Karl Dockstader (Oneida)
"Hello and welcome everyone and we're so glad to have you today. Joining me is Carl docstater and just to give you a little background on this guy he's a member of the United. Nation, and he's the program called for the four year Fellowship Center about four years ago. He and a colleague of his started a podcast called one dish one Mike, and since then it's transformed into a weekly on air radio show, and recently he. He became a recipient of Canadian Journalism Foundation CBC. Fellowship for his. Outstanding Work I've been on his show before the ever since our show started. We've communicated back and forth, and finally it's my delight to introduce this man, and on top of that all he's an avid buffalo bills fan, so I would like to give a big severely to Mr Pro docstater You're very kind to Gaydos in the youngest log into low to Jota, what's the? What can I do? GEICO Ajayi? That translates to many Ms Carl. Just kidding There's there's a lot more in there. that I I like to introduce myself with Mitch official name is often as possible because our our language is under threat. I think that using any language like even if you only know Golly, even if you only know gateway when you're saying goodbye to someone or or something similar to goodbye, or or if you're seeing Jawa, thank someone. I think that every bit of language revitalization is is important, so so thank you for for having me on your show I have a gigantic fan. If you go into the archives, you can find an episode where we interview Andrew Shannon I may podcasting Betsy Andrew and I think that it's really just forty five minutes of meat gushing lick offend will. So but but you're worth it I mean it, it's it's really be concept. Your show that that you're doing at I'm I'm glad to be on for for something. Maybe a little outside of the box of avoid normally, so they are having beats danger. It's it's outside of the box, but i. feel like when we started the show. This is more of what we wanted. It's easy to talk about dead people because if you. You get something wrong well. They're not around to defend themselves. What's really hard for me? Is from a loving history and background is a lot of times. We try as hard as we can to point out. The the members of the six nations are still around today. There's still a vibrant part of our communities. They still contribute still here at not not like two or three of them left and on our show I have to. To purposely save the holding. The schone are instead of the haughtiness. SCHONE did and a lot of times we use the past tense. I I apologize to it now. You know when you're talking about past historical events that happens a lot, but we'd like to point out all the contributions that people have made in the past, and how the influenced our history and culture and society, and so it's just good to have somebody from today. Today that can can speak for today. I know you're just one person I. Know You don't speak on behalf of all indigenous people on the continent. I know you don't speak on behalf of everyone from the Oneida nation. You probably don't speak on behalf of your family either. It's good to have other perspectives because Caleb. I realized that we're limited in our scope. I wanted to have somebody come on. That could give me an. Update, but just what is Oneida culture like today? And what are the issues that your people are facing today? And then I also WANNA. Look towards the future a lot of times we get bogged down today's issues. Today's Oracle stuff, and as this podcast is recorded as different, but I realized that years from now decades from now hopefully, when people are still listening to you and me working back through the archives that you know we can, we can look forward and see what what does the future stand? What does the to row treaty mean for both our peoples in the future going forward. So that's a long winded. Introduction, BUT I want to turn over your Harlan just give you really open ended just give me a background about yourself and your upbringing. Yeah, thank you, thank you for the opportunity again. I think that what you said is probably key at. If if you're just tuning in if tuning in because of me than you've heard me, say this before if tuning into your recoil, ledges, mystery podcasts, and you're hearing me for the. The first time I think it is important that we're hitting on that concept. The Ngoni people are are still here and I, even like like I had to check myself I was helping my daughter my my nine year old at the time ten year old daughter. Do you a project for history? And it's it's difficult to sift through the history texts and to see them. Talk about how we were as people like, say we. We are as a people like we were still doing. Ceremonies were still. I'm literally trying to grow white corn, even as we speak like I'm. I'm sitting here. Thinking created rain last night because we're not something that their lives in a textbook sitting on sitting on a shelf somewhere, that's something that we want to bring a so having opportunity to come on with you today to to really remind people that can onto says about about living. Living History. History is something we're still living right now is super cool I. one of the reasons I like to get on. This side of the microphone is is that I don't have to talk about myself, so it's it's different since since I now you're the one that's technically behind the Mike but I mean I can say is that it's What it really pride myself on is is activity in my own community. I went and I volunteered tirelessly from a friendship center work at the forgery native. Friendship Centre by day. I volunteered there before I worked there I volunteered at the other friendship center in our region, the Niagara Regional Native Center and that for everything we do is indigenous people I. Think I think it's really evaluated on a on a community level and I. think that's something that we've actively done. Is that individuals? Success is just not the metric. That's not the measurement for for who we are as.

Paul Burston: So Many Men, So Little Time
"It was nineteen eighty-eight so I would have been twenty two. I think I finished university and I devoted myself base being a full-time seen queen and I was having a lot of fun of fun. There wasn't really low drugs around that I was not that I was aware of anyway. People get drunk on beer or steal beer. Sometimes I could not that pint of that so it wasn't that kind of like glass frontier. We're happy to be seen. It was all quite behind doc windows. And it was like ultra ultraviolet lights everywhere because everyone's dandruff. On their showed there's video. Scrimmage was a novelty a video screen and a bar and you can pay money to choose videos. We should be done for videos in those days to watch pope whenever you want it to always have. Don't leave me this way by Bouncy. Cb there was always on when whenever into Harpoon Louie's that was on and there was. I WANNA dance with somebody by Whitney. Houston they take me back to those year to that place there were different of tribes within that as well so that look you had that kind of Franken Hollywood's look should. I was pretty those Saturday night at half and that was I was the only night at Heaven which I actually came out by going to heaven so I came. I didn't tell anybody I just went to have on my own and stood outside and I knew I knew there was GEICO. Having everyone knew that and I've seen something in time out magazine I think it was And I went to long understood outside. I spiked up. Hair like friendly McCullough from Akron. The bunny man. I had plucked eyebrows and makeup. I think two hearings in each year on knows that as well and I stood side for about two hours. Watching these men queuing up. None of looked tore like me. They all looked like village people and number shirts and moustaches and I couldn't. I just couldn't go in so I said as a chain smoking I went back to Waterloo train back to Richmond and university again but I went back the next Saturday and the next Saturday and then invention third week I actually picked up the courage to go in getting a little bit closer and I went down those hallowed stairs and I remember that the sense of the smell which I didn't mechanism bustos was poppers. Didn't what he wants to start old socks and you walk into this room and the first thing I heard was this guy sort of swished by saying so many men so little time extra popular tune if the time and I just turned and ran out again because it terrified me and then the funding we went back and I stood literally lately with my back against the wall. Didn't talk to anybody. Stood up against the wall looking people as nineteen of so terrified and then eventually someone talked to me and then not wanting another with that particular. One just generally without something with that particular. Someone broke my heart though. Of course best bastard but to do it come out. It wasn't the best way probably be go to pick new. Only be terrified. Puts ME IN MIND TO SWIM? You start off just you in the water. Then you float. He's on and yes and above our and then you start moving around and I. I've always tend to jump into things too much so I have my local Gay Mitchell. After goes the biggest gates and in the whole world. The time probably to do it. Yeah just throw from seven to that. I left. I'd many many many great times than many great times then over the subsequent years and there so many men so little time. Well they were yes definitely in both senses because we didn't realize then just many men. We're going to have so little time unusual. Change very very quickly became quite prophetic. Really I was making up for lost time. I had fun. I made lots of new friends. Even if you didn't the names at least at least we were together. I'm quite choosy like that. Yeah I actually had sex with somebody wants waiting for night bus into Vulgar Square. Actually in the night in the queue of the night in the kids. Yeah Yeah Yeah by. The National Gallery was no one else in the queue tempted to join in offer offer. Some kind of the neighbors and developed square knows. Days was a real hotbed activity. Whatever would come from heaven or Soho in the middle of the week and they just be. So many gay guys queuing the but Vulgar Square. Honestly say people from that period for similar stories of just like getting on the different night because you fancied some but in finding you in Eastland and you live in Richmond. Just there was. There was a hottie on the and hoping that they'd give you some wet they usually did of charity for me. Part of the fun of those of that period of my life was that you'd go out and you'd meet people and you would normally meet meet a cross section of people. I have friends all different ages. Different backgrounds and sexualities and genders much more fragmented later and I think that the sex it can victim of own success in a way. Because there wasn't there wasn't the connections after AIDS happens because that was a huge thing in my life or knows about twenty five twenty six most of my gay male friends at that point. Were some years old me because I was I I wanted to learn. I wanted to own it someone to be my older brother and teach me and show me the ropes and some and they were the ones that died so I lost all of them pretty much and then I became an aids activist and got me involved in that and the for all of the for all the things that I would not change for anything but a lot of things about the eighty S. I would never want to have back. But there was a sense of community. People did pull together and they did rally and there were. There was communication between different generations. Different tribes within within our communities. And now it is. That's true anymore. I think that there was a break in the chain because there was generation that was kind of lost to HIV AIDS. There was the generation that we're impacted by it like my generation who went to flow of grief innovation space sandwiches very traumatic. And I'm probably not really over yet still in there some degree and then it becomes a very difficult subject to talk about so you don't talk about it very often and then the younger kids come in. And they've got half of this happens. They know the history half the time when you talk to. You have no idea what was going on ten fifteen years before they were. Because why would you know? I didn't WANNA die. Young either. Must be about twenty two when I first heard about it my boyfriend at the time. Read something in one of gay papers and said we have to stop using condoms and I was like. Whoa and then I'd heard that someone I was at college with who was a mature student and he disappeared for a long period. He didn't come back after this term. I then learned on the grapevine that he was gay. Had THIS BOYFRIEND WHO AMERICAN. They basically both contracted dictionary and he died really community rapidly. I wasn't really. I didn't know he might just name to say hi to billy and he was the first person that was. I that I knew of and then the guy was living in the in the tower block with who I was very close to and it was the real mentor of mine. I moved and I went to see him one night and He was he was all something ought to buy it. The whole evening was very strange and strained and I remember asking him about how he say. Seeing somebody recently this new boyfriend and I saw how things go with a boyfriend and he said Oh. What's been difficult because he he's he's a he's upset because I don't I don't have sex now that I majorly positive. And that was how that was how he told me. And I just put the spray face on and just get through this conversation. I was absolutely shocked. Devastated because at that in that back. They're not meant to death. Sentence there was there was no treatment and I remember sitting to this dinner feeding. Obser- your phone and then getting home on the train and just crying. The whole journey home. He became really really quickly and then he was. He won't one of his dying wishes as you wanted to go to. Amsterdam you know Vietnam and his friends. Most of them were straight women elected person to take him and I went. I took him to them on this trip and I spent the whole time. What thinking he was going to die on me. And how am I going to manage to get him what I do? I was twenty four years of age. Twenty five this. It was horrendous. It was very frightening when he was hospitalized to visit him and habit. Bobi helping with things. I remember one time picking up urine bottle onto the bed and tipping acid typically myself and being paranoid even though I knew deep down that this was not something that was good pose. Any risk to me. We didn't really know people didn't really know no. There wasn't much information. And this is before lady. Diana went into the AIDS. Ward this before this sort of stuff happened it was it was still appeared it was not really spoken about if it was spoken about hushed voices and it was very frightening time and he was a very very good community minded person he he was involved in the running of the building and everyone knew who he was he would chair meetings and whatever and then after he got. L. Someone Daubed on his front door house of AIDS on his front door and then he died and I was really in the state about it and reading the papers. There was a meeting happening at the London. Lesbian Gay Entering Cow Cross Street and Farrington. Which is not no longer there but it was very popular but place back then and there was a meeting happening and his act up and I I knew I act up was happening in America. Knew what actor boss I went to this meeting. I just threw myself into it and it took up my life completely for like three years and it was way of channelling the grief because in an over over those three years it was just one funeral after another. He was just he got to the point. Where you'd actually dread answering the phone. And I used to a Filofax that was an effects back in the eighty s. My member year just taking all the names out taking people out because people are just dying all the time even my family. I mean little bits but they just did not understand why this was any different to my grandfather dying because that's expected because he's fucking eighteen easily and he smokes these ill and mentioned me dying and late. Twenties and early Thirties. It's it's completely mad. It was it was like there was a war going on but only we knew about it was the why was completely oblivious and yet within our world which is very very contains. Gay London world. There was a war going on and people were dying all around us and we were expected to carry on as normal. What you have the you do that.
"Hello everybody happy while wherever you are on this glorious year revision we can came under your Eurovision Song contest fan you. I think you're even begin to it this year. Weren't you in in Rotterdam so? Have you been coping without the prospect of any sort of live dies than well getting Easter? Now Joel tennis being canceled Irvine being cancelled. Yeah I had tickets for the first time and it's law it was council but hopefully out next year and we had celebration on on the TV last night and had some Swedish food and some cocktails to kind of raise a bit of a glass to what what never happened. But but yeah I think I think you were watching us. Well Joe. You're right yes I was. I catch Lubbock came. I'm going to hold my hand up here. Johnny Logan he comes on the TV and have no idea who he is by turns out. He's he's pretty much the go of of the on contests Mariah a bit. Like the Federa of of your vision life. If you don't tennis you you at least know the name federal. Maybe Johnny Logan could could be a bit like that but yeah. I was quite surprised. You shouldn't you've never heard of him. He's one well three times twice as a singer songwriter. Say He is the kind of the winningest person in in your vision. I guess you could say but yeah maybe actually we can do a European podcast as well. But let's let's go to tennis because we're going to be looking at the Italian. Upn and top eight movements. The happened in rave the last few decades. And perhaps I should lead on this one job because I'm going start with a moment featuring the man himself rapper. One of surprise well yes and listeners. And said he'd rougher bear with us because we all see you're not the end of the alternative Casey's season I mean let's be honest because light Madrid. Rome is Dallas. Hi I think he's one like what nine titles zero something ludicrously say is as as hardly a surprise to kind of see him featured this list say yes came. More is was the first moment. We're WE'RE GONNA be reliving. Well I thought we have liquor two thousand five. Which was you know I play horses and really where he takes. The kind of took it by storm. He won the first time. Yeah his first of nine titles. I think back in five and so he came up against Korea. Who at the time I guess was probably the most to stop ish claycourter of over air or at least one of them very face competitor for sure but the final was another five-set Masters Final five-set thriller? It was over five hours long. Which if you think about now if they were doing that consistently Austin Final Monte Carlo Madrid. That would just be insane. I mean I actually am believe that they used to do this to be called with the but yeah it was. It was a real ding. Dong to one of the better word. Joe Six four three six six three full six and then rougher one at seven six on a law set tiebreak but think about this much. Rougher was a double breakdown and fifth say. Who's three lockdown Sakaria? Really could've gone on us up momentum going away and one but I think really is kind of weakest point throughout his whole career was was his mental strength and he kind of collapsed that combined with with. Rafa you know. Obviously he's attitude his diehard shoot. Never giving up. He was on like a sixteen match winning streak at this point and say obviously he. He had a lot of belief in his game. And but I think Korea would be very devastated after this loss at I think. Actually in his post-match she interceded say this was one of the hardest defeats of his career. I think it was interesting to is. I think Korea probably getting into this matching gains clay season. Yeah he's probably thinking. I'm beatable on clay call. There is no one else out there better than me and who comes along on the Dow eighteen year old teenage eh relatively unheard of and I think this match proved that even when Korea was playing his absolutely best tennis possible. That was someone else out there better than him and I think he was kind of disheartened by that and I think this much great show us. You said mentally he you know he wasn't as strong as some of his other competitors or I think when you're three love up Double in the fifth set us really should be closing that match out and he wasn't able to do that. I think that's one of the things we might associate with a player who you know as brilliant as he is in Korea kind of on the mental side of things. I don't think you could put him up there with the greats and I kind of look at this match. I look at the two thousand four French Open final as well where he Gaston Gaudio. In the final game was five sets but again crucially he was two sets up. He was six love. Six three up was unable to close out the the match. And you know he's probably one of these as you put in the category of greatest players never have one. Ud wonder if if he hit if he had won if he had won this final in in Rome beaten Dow that would have given him the confidence indicate and reinforce that belief that he was and he was at the time the best the best clay court player in the world. I think obviously that loss against scout and then going into this match against Rafeh just his. His mental side of things just wasn't subscription. A Rafeh had beaten him in the Monte Carlo. Final just a couple of weeks before this so again he knew he was up against and he kind of let it. Let it slip away to be honest with you and Yeah so I just thought you know. Obviously this was this was a great match and it was symbolic because again you have this is like the birth of of Raffarin. His kind of play. Call dominance in this. Totally kind of pulsing off of his. You know the best steak or two at the time we had people like Carlos Moya one Ferrara Cowdrey. Kara in a sort of all very good establish trae which just as soon as Raff kind of started working his magic. He'd I guess it kind of became almost impossible. Perhaps to argue against for being the best. Geico
AI Opportunity in Insurance, from Process Automation to Decision Support - with Gary Hagmueller
"This week's episode is focused squarely on insurance. There's a lot to keep track of in the space from claims to underwriting to back in process automation to customer service every six months the landscape of AI vendors and known use cases in the enterprise companies changing in altering in part of our work involves staying on top of that that means speaking to heads of AI and innovation leaders at companies. You might know like Geico allstate or Axa. Some the biggest insurance players in the world as well as staying on top of the start up ecosystem this week we speak with one of the players in that. Startup ecosystem. Gary Moeller is the CEO and president of Clara Analytics Clara analytics based in the bay area. And they are focused squarely on insurance artificial intelligence applications Gary previously was the chief operating officer at a house. D One of the rare companies in Silicon Valley to raise hundred million dollars plus for an artificial intelligence company and he was before that the CFO at Zoro which is an incredibly successful subscription management payments. Firm out again in the bay area so gary has got a pretty storied past in the startup world. Clarice raised about twelve million in there. Certainly on the way up insurances ripe for disruption and there's plenty to cover so gary gives us his perspective on where is making its way into insurance where he thinks it's going to make the biggest impact in the relative near term without further ado. We're going to hop right. It says Gary Hag with Clara analytics here on the business podcast so Gary. I wanted to start us off with just your idea today as to where is making a difference in insurance what what functions. It's being adopted into where the traction is today. If we look at a in the Insurance Enterprise Great Question. Damn yeah so so. There's definitely a whole bunch of different places where we're starting to see a proliferate. I will say it's probably very early days really for a big time. So we're you know. Obviously we are very focused on the claims operation space and so we're seeing a variety of different places where this is getting applied. It's getting applied. At least we're we're we're seeing it generally in two flavors things that can kind of be automated away. You know think simple tasks that it you know today. You got a human doing that. Maybe doesn't need to be done and in the second place where we're seeing it. Generally is is occurring in places where there are very complex in weak signals. That have a pretty large bearing on the outcome of whatever the person is working on or whatever the group is working on in is really being used as an augmentation of human capability but so think about the ability to kind of see around the corner and figure out where the things that that could affect what they're working on positively or negatively are In giving them action in on so like nausea as he said. Our focus is on claims ops but yet we have it a guy on my board works in in underwriting and we seen a bunch of different places where this is starting to apply even in the actuarial space. But it's been you know it's really feels like there's a. There's a groundswell of interest activity coming. I like your break out here when you when you look at a impact and insurance. Maybe we could do this with any sector. But you're talking about two categories. One is what can be automated away. I like the term. A lot of vendors are afraid to use that phrase even because it it comes across. You know immoral. You're one of those automation. People stealing job I. I hear a lot of vendors been far too tender with being able to say that phrase Second informing decisions. So it's sounds like a short breaking things up into we look at insurance. What might be an example of each just to give people a Nice Representative Lens into space some automated stuff and then some some decision informing. So I'm GonNa give you some thoughts on both of those but I do WanNa touch on the point on the automation automation away. I feel like that's a topic. That comes up a lot in this whole a discussion on. I don't think it's as sinister as which you portrayed it as I think it's really a situation where there's a lot of tasks that are being done today that I guarantee you that people do not. I don't WanNa do. And it's part of their regular job and so if you free them from doing tasks that they don't WanNa do in focus them in on the things that they would rather be doing that. They are probably better at doing right. That actually ends up making everybody better off instead of giving you kind of an example right. There's a lot of places where you have things blow through processing right where you can get a claim you can analyze. The machine can analyze the claim. The machine can make a determination that like this routine claimed. Let's just go ahead and eight. You know issue payment or issue settlement or whatever On this particular thing so that's maybe an example of things that the kind of flow through the machine can take care of An ambitious close out without necessarily having to kick it up to somebody who is just going to you know. Look at it. Roll their eyes. It's just another one of these ones again. You know do a couple of things. Close it out and move on right. So that's kind of an example of the automation flow the other side of it. So think of it as kind of decision support or or kind of enhancements human enhancement is what I would basically think about it. Were that's where you know. This is this by the way is common across all areas of machine learning. Were what you're doing. If you're tapping into an appropriately. Large amount of data. You're going to begin to pick up weak signals right in in things that are actually deterministic. That most humans aren't going to be able to go off and do right in in. That's for two reasons number one. They may have been doing this job for ten fifteen whatever years to have a certain way of doing the job and they're just never going to look at those other sources of data right. The secondary part is that some of those sources flow in places that people generally don't even look at so if you've figured out how to tap into all these different data sources and you can then get a much more complete picture like in the case of the sorts of things that we do. We can do a much more complete sense of what's going on with an individual claiming give evidence on like exactly how to attack this problem. Right now to mitigate loss or wind up doing something that's going to wind up making the claiming happier subtle faster. That sort of thing in. Maybe there's an interesting sort of exercise that we could do so I guess one quick thing I did I certainly wouldn't call automation sinister per se. I think there are to be some cases where someone gets freed up to do something more cognitively interesting and it's a thank goodness kind of experience. There will be other times where you know. Abacha folks in India Needham Filing TPS reports anymore. You know what I mean. They'll find somebody else to work with point blank period. There's going to be that and I think everybody needs to be pretty honest about it but there will be plenty of of experiences where we'll be able to move people up in work more interesting things when you look in a business and obviously insurance is your space and you aim to sort of help. Maybe business leaders think through where I can find a fit. You look at a business and say oh here's some identifiable for our potentially automative bucket and then here's some ones that we can also identify for the decision bucket. How do we put on a pair of goggles to to see those opportunities an insurance? What might be helpful.
Loopholes In Small Business Relief Program Allowed Thriving Companies To Cash In
"Here is the harsh math of the paycheck protection program. Hundreds of billions of dollars in USA government loans are not nearly enough for every small business in need so in one company gets alone. It that others may not. That's why it matters that accompany received millions at the very moment that it's business was booming. Npr An investigative correspondent Cheryl W Thompson reports. If there's one sector of the economy that's in high demand right now. It's medical testing earlier this month. Long island-based Kim Bio Diagnostics was one of the first companies to get emergency. Fda approval for blood tests to detect covert nineteen antibodies and says board member and former interim CEO Gil page. They're looking to grow and order. I the ramp and as the things we need to do to increase Armenia factoring capabilities. You know we felt like having the supplemental a dollar amount or law is very helpful in helping. Us employs people alone. She's referring to the SBA paycheck protection. Program Kim biometrics diagnostic tests for all kinds of infectious diseases. They worked on HIV EBOLA ZEKA and others. Fda approval of companies fingerprint cove in nineteen tests created a huge opportunity. Their stock price averaged about five dollars a share over the last year and yesterday it closed at about eleven dollars the paycheck protection loan would give them the liquidity to help them grow. They applied for and got nearly three million dollars. When you get these pandemics and there's all of a sudden this big rush and you need to be able to supply the problem is. That's not what the paycheck protection program is designed to do. The goal here isn't to expand the size of companies. The goal here is to kind of keep them alive while we get through this crisis. Margot D- wine is the senior policy director for the Committee for Responsible Federal Budget in Washington. Dc He says the program is for companies that are struggling losing customers laying off employees on the brink of shutting down companies. Have to self certify that they need this money because they are experiencing adverse effects if they are not experiencing adverse effects. It's probably inappropriate. Gilpin says it was totally proper for Kim Bio which has gotten government grants over the years to work on diagnostic testing to take the paycheck protection. Money when you have a crisis locked it a lot of the customer base that you dependent upon your revenue Kinda slip. Serve here to the side so another. I stay viable and we felt like we needed to participate in stock. Price doesn't represent necessarily cash in the bank. One issue with the first round of disbursements. Was that the law was murky. Florida Republican senator. Rick Scott expressed concern last week. The company's not heard by the pandemic found loopholes and got millions of dollars and remember even though they're giving us loans. Most of the money will be forgiven by the government. As long as it's used appropriately earlier this week officials began issuing a second round of loans. Three hundred and eleven billion dollars. The question is whether mistakes will be repeated. Go Wind says in fact in this next round of funds it looks like the SBA. We'll be doing some more oversight Treasury Secretary. Steve MNUCHIN has tow companies that received money but may not have qualified that they have a grace period to return it the SBA told NPR. That two billion dollars has been declined to return so far that money will now be available in the current application process. Geico page the board member at Kim Bio says the company hasn't decided whether to return the nearly three million dollar loan it
"geico" Discussed on The Steve Matthes Show on RacerX
"Yeah absolutely sometimes you just you jump in the wrong hot tub and you just you know you gotta get out so Yeah who knows right but But yeah these things happen. We all make mistakes and and again. I think the biggest the biggest challenge for Ryan is just him transitioning and luminous probably hard for him. And and yeah. We've all done it. We all get older will change jobs and and and yeah just spin up and you go through. Also I think when you're Ryan and you get on board and your so Ryan's you know. Got His whole program his whole life and and everything else is voted with him and whatever he wanted to do and he became a multi shopping. I think I would imagine that when I when I when I spoke to people who said Ryan was frustrated. A little bit about this. I would imagine dealing with parents and kids. Because that's what the guys guys are their kids. Ronald probably like wait. W T F like what like I like. You know you got to clear all this stuff through parents and kids and all of this yeah and the and the GEICO team is big. Right now Ryan's ever been on team as big as that team. We're talking team has five pros three three or four amateurs a giant shop. Huge staff All that just. It's a big big team. A big operation and more money more problems more staff more. That's just that's just how things go right. I mean I I remember when we went to two trucks and two teams at pro circuit. It stressed everybody out and the entire team. Kinda got worse because we lost you know we we. We weren't able to focus as much on the goal at hand and that was to win the two fifty class so I mean I'm sure that some of it and Ryan grew up in a really good situation. I think he has a really good relationship with his parents and family and and so maybe started encounter some things that were just super formed him right that that he was like what the Hell I never dealt with this stuff like my parents weren't cases or you know what I mean. Yeah no I think that was some of what I'm hearing but I'm really I'm hearing. It was a time thing. And he was all in and it was like. Wait a minute you know. So but but the fact that he deleted everything on so on. Instagram is very odd and the fact that he didn't maintain a bit of ownership to make financial gain in the future is also odd. But Hey like somebody told me. Another person told me. He's the all in or all out again. That's that's fair I I kind of I relate that way I think you know to Steve if I'd do anything on it. I think Ryan's the same way like you're GonNa do something. Do it right if not you. Don't do it. Yeah Yeah I agree I agree. So that's the rental reaction for Dungy leaving Geico that's what we know will snoop around this weekend in Atlanta for sure and try to find out some more and I'll reach out to Ryan and ask him if he wanted to comment I guarantee you. He won't because he's Ryan but I will reach out to him. That's good reaction and try to try to get something but before we go something on rentals website that you talked about on Monday. Show that maybe we can promote a little bit on here the bar the Bar measurement tool. That's something I really want everyone to know about. And obviously purchasing a handlebar and finding the right bent for us always very very difficult So you know I see. So many times people walk into a dealership. They pick up a handlebar and they hold it like. They're going to figure out what they exactly what they want and then they go home put on the in the under by the garage. They don't like it so if you go to rental DOT COM We have something called the works that tool in your action. You actually can overlay images of handlebars and all the specs are in there. You can actually put it in your motorcycle and it'll pull up your own bar And then you overlay any rental handlebar that we make so. If you're looking for something with just a little bit you know less height but same sweep you can find it on there. And you can purchase handlebar with with conviction. Know that you picked out exactly what you need so yeah. I just want everyone to know about that. Please use it. I used it even when I did work at Renzo. Fantastic no good good to know rand. Paul Dot Com. You know the name you know. That didn't know the championship. Save One and the Writers. They work with so please check them out. Rental Reaction Show W T.F with Ranji and GEICO Honda. Thanks appreciate it. We'll see this weekend..
"geico" Discussed on The Steve Matthes Show on RacerX
"Of the GEICO. Honda team buying into it He was there at the opening rounds. He was very involved from what I could see like meeting with riders talking to media all that Kinda stuff. He's not well. He wasn't like a silent partner away from the team like he was on. He was in and all in and helping to try to help the team win races. So you this was something that was really cool and really need to see the initial the initial announcement. Though Paul was a little surprising. Yeah it was really surprising right so I I mean maybe maybe what it was is he rode on a while ago and had pretaped Barzan. He just didn't really like it right and sit right now. Now I mean again. Just speculating I guess. The original arrangement was was always kind of interesting to me right. Because I don't think any anybody any sound person especially with your own finances would buy into racing per se. Those just like write a check to a racing. I never thought that was it. And maybe that was it but I still don't today to to this day. Don't think that was it but there was talk during the summer for a while that Grondahl was trying to exit the team and there was some talk about the race jobs a theory that I had heard that made a lot of sense to me was Was that maybe Ryan purchase the rain shop and he was kind of a property owner in that was his way of getting some ownership team and finding a more active role and starting to work with writers and go to the races and do all those things he wants to do right because he's in that transition period which has to be hard right. He's been doing this for his whole life. And now it's kind of just stopped and the next step is hard to find similar to what you had heard. I heard the same thing he'd bought into some real estate with the team. And so yes an easy way to make a million dollars. Race team is to start with two million. That's the old joke but Ryan had actually purchasing some concrete assets. That are part of the team. And you know those things acquire value over time and everything so kind of what I heard but then there's that obviously jeff my shack Minnesota Guy. They've known to- Forever Jeff's apart owner along with Ziggy and a Mike Grungo. Who who did he start planet fitness or owns planet fitness is? I don't know if he started it or not. But know yeah. Big Part of an analysis als- also eighty s gear at one point and now they're ABCD and yeah we'd heard that Grondahl share was going to change and that's fine that's all well and good and getting assets and everything else but as I said Paul like donges involved like he was intense. He was involved. He's talking to AMA. He was talking to the riders. This was not just going to sit back here and own a piece of the team. He was actively involved in the raiders. Lives like calling them and dealing with the racist so to go from what was the off year and a half two years too wide open again with a new baby. Those a big step for rhyme. Yeah I think so right and I think that has to be part of it just having gone through it myself like you know having had a child and the transition that you make at home with your wife and your life right. It's it's different so I imagine that's part of it right they I. It seems like they waited for Ryan to retire before they started their. You know having kids and having a family and and then Ryan's gone again so on the weekends so I feel that might be part of it but I also feel for Ryan Bit. It's it's got again. It's gotta be hard to transition rights but doing this for such a long time and he has so much knowledge to share with these younger. Kids and Ryan climb was kind of impressive right. I mean he came from a class at Loretta. Lynn's all of a sudden was was a title guy within a couple of years so A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE TO SHARE. And Yeah so the the weird part was also how sudden it was. Obviously we never heard about it as well. But what do you make of how he left? Ktm how Katya on responded to it. Right exactly I from what I hear from good sources is that. Ktm was super pissed. That Ryan did this Ryan was going to be mentored as a team manager in the DACOSTA role in Harrison. Was there now so either Ryan was going to be like a rotter coach or you know a a rider liaison or whatever while he ended the technical stuff and Ryan's announcement of gyco deal really shock. Atm and from what I heard at the time he didn't want to be as involved with Ktar as they wanted him to. Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But I heard that again from good sources like they wanted him the racists. He's like no. I don't want to do that. And then he goes and buys into GEICO and he's not at all the races but dude he's there. He's intense like he missed his thirtieth birthday because he's at the races he was he valentine's Day because he was at the races at the shoprite like he was all in he was all in so the part about being all in with them him. Not Wanting that. Maybe it was different. 'cause there's an ownership stakes gyco but it's a little weird but he abruptly toll Katie. I'm like Hey I'm out. I'm done and they're like what so. It was a shock there. Yeah allegedly I. I don't know if you've heard this too but and I don't know maybe one of our international Listeners can investigate this. But what do they have a kate damage? Call the hall of Champions or champions or the museum or something. I had allegedly heard that there was talk or or even action to pull out of Ryan. Dungy imagery out of that deal. I don't know after this after the switchover happened again. This is total just allegedly speaking. But but yeah I think that gives you an idea. Even if that rumors was out there it gives you an idea of. Ktla was upset So the only thing I can think of is that maybe Ryan voice wasn't being heard as as loud as he wanted to be heard a KTM. I think when he when he has the ownership opportunity and he's already in business with with with my shack on the intent. Side right is just another business venture with a trusted friend that also lives in Minnesota. Just a a mentor right. I would I would. I would imagine he looks at Jeff as a mentor So I thought I was thinking this fits right. You can have more of a voice. He has an ownership stake. And he's also mentoring younger writers right when you're at KTM you're mentoring the 450 guys. And I feel like a little bit different. I BET YOU PEOPLE. I bet you the younger kids in there. You know the teenagers. Listen Ryan a lot differently than a four fifty title. Contender would right. Yeah yeah absolutely. So he's apart from Geico from what I hear. The ownership part of it is gone to like. He's not silent. You didn't step back as far as the racist. He's also he's not evolved anymore and the ownership level so I don't know how that goes the GRONDAHL share which I had heard originally that he had taken over so I don't know anything about that but he is not involved in the ownership any more of it so that never really got that. All those is never got dotted and t's never got cross to finalize that deal and I think I mean there's lots of people that want to talk about them. Leaving in kind of get. The real story was on the phone a couple of people last night and you know from what I it. It was a combination of time and not quite being fit for. It was combination of both things as you said new baby at home he Ryan is all in his type as driven and team. The team from what I hear was surprised how into it. He was how in he was how involved he was deep in it. Involved with all the riders all the parents all the trainers all the agents. Everything and they were like. Oh okay no problem but they were surprised and sponsors to I heard I mean I feel like this. This happen kind of suddenly. I mean because just through you know industry close friends in and obviously we hear a lot of things that we never speak about or can't speak about but I I think he's very evolved even in the sponsorship side for from You know very recently too so you know I I. Don't I feel like this decision happened? Probably in the last week or two. Yeah I think the person I talked to said Ryan was all in and then when he's not all in he's all out that's what they like like like he's not going to be like. Hey Listen I've still want to keep the ownership but I'm not gonNA come to the races that much because it's not working out it's like I don't want the ownership. I don't WANNA come raises. I'm out right. Yeah so this person was like oh like wow so the weird thing though and I and I didn't confirm this for myself I probably should. It was real easy to do but apparently Ryan struck all mentions of GEICO office office instagram. Now that's what I was told to not his twitter yet but officer. I'M GONNA go there right now while we're doing this. I should have done this before the show but but okay so I believe it's true because somebody else a couple people told me that he said the farewell notice and then yeah so there was photos of him riding a Gyco bike a Honda and they're gone and as is I. Think the post 'em as as the post saying that he's on board so so does that. Does that make you think that this could possibly have something to do? Okay Tim well yes. But the leading these posts doesn't mean it didn't happen Ryan so I from what I understood. It was a it was a party. That was fine for everybody. You know nobody. Nobody was angry. One of the first people I talked to talk to Ryan the other day. So but why would you? How would you deleted all? Why why would you do that? That's odd I I mean I don't have that many followers you have more than I do. Do People go back and talk shit on old posts or is it just something that you just WanNa wipe clean and I.
"geico" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Sports radio's toll free line is sponsored by geico what do you own or rent geico makes it easy to bundle home and auto insurance have you home is hard work to get a quote at geico dot com easy will get the playoff stuff in just a minute here before first let's go to Dan Dan you're on CBS sports radio there are a hundred percent agree with you about this sixteen games but I have another spin on it okay because I think the players ought to take control of protecting themselves because there are some referees to call and leaves that RBS fictitious and then there's well say referees that won't blow a whistle when it got to check this cheap shot out and I'm gonna go back to the Detroit bank in the first game they played this year okay transferred a face the same representative same call twice there was no hands in the face and yeah that same GA I wouldn't call the targeting this top players from Green Bay well do you think that was intentional control of the referees good good del wall the only way they're going to do this is by getting rid of the bad referees well I don't know if the players this certainly have the leverage to get rid of the rats and and the other thing is I think a lot of that stuff is just human error rescue going to screw stuff up in all things regal you're not gonna get calls one week you're gonna get calls the next week generally get calls at home so half the year you're gonna get more calls your way the not so I don't know if the referees of the big hang up here it but then I appreciate the call it's just I don't know it does that doesn't move the needle much for me and I don't think it matters much in this it's just they don't they don't want to go to the beating of seventeen games and this is one of those things where I gotta tell ya a lot of people and this is one of the fun things about sports radio sometimes like a professional player tears their ACL guy calls it a look you know I tore my ACL and high school let me tell you this is exactly what the rehab goes like okay it probably doesn't go that way to your multi million dollar player with the best doctors in the world the medicines in the world your treatments going to be a little different than your average guys playing in high school but you know the pain is of that injury right you know what it's like you know what it feels like how it affects you and so to think about that and what these guys go through every single year I mean the expectation of an NFL player is your going to get surgery many many times over the course of your career even if it's not a major injury yeah we're just gonna go and clean up your knee I I what what does that mean you're put in a room but my need for a couple of minutes just going to work very sweet things up and pop out like I don't know what that means but a lot of guys get it that kind of stuff happens all the time so is it fair that they don't go to the seventeenth game because I think about the playoffs and when it comes to the playoffs I don't think that's a big factor here adding a seventh playoff team I don't think that ruins the equation I don't think players are necessarily opposed to that and you know years we'll do we'll get into that a little bit more as to why in just a couple of minutes but first to get it to break here so eight five five two one two four two two seven is how you doing the show and I said that really fast I'll say it again a little bit slower eight five five two one two four two two seven that's how you join the show you can also find me on Twitter at it's been it's going that's all one word it's been quite so I again I meant to get to it will get back to it how does the playoff picture how does that really impact things you're supposed to one seventeen regular season games that is a stated report from a member of NFL network well connected member of NFL network so what do the playoff games me that's coming up next but first here's a CBS sports update with Jay Berman sports flag will begin in the NBA lots of Laker news to get too including a game against the Grizzlies last night Lakers beat the Grizzlies at staples one.
The Secrets of the Self: Pitfalls
"Today. What I'd like to do is actually mentioned a few patrols that people on the spiritual bought what are susceptible to anyone who's experienced spiritual seeking or being spiritual junkie as they call them Goes to every workshop away every seminar on spirituality and there are some pitfalls that happened when you become a spiritual junkie and here's how you avoid them number one knowing where you're going knowing where you're going. There's an ancient Zen aphorism that says a good traveler has no definite plans and is not intent intent. On arriving. I repeat that a good traveler has no definite. Plans is not intent on on arriving. That's me by the way I travel all the time in some people have to take LSD and all these drugs do take a trip. They call it tripping. Okay but have you ever watched a baby. They're tripping all the time so happy and joyful they said what is is. This may be taking a kid. I wish I could bottle that they're tripping because they'll where they are. The Judy is the destination insulation. So if you know where you're going or you're not with me hard. Work driving ambitious exacting. Exacting plans a goal. That you will get to and you're never present right now for that. The new arrive where you will arrive. You won't be president. President anyways was the point to the West. bitwell is relax. The point of arrival is now in fact. There's no other point of arrival other than now think about it. Have you ever been anywhere other than now. Even when you're planning in your imagination to be in the future you're doing it now. The bus is history. The putsch future there is not yet. Now I'm alive. Good place to begin. So once you know this pitfall then can you will also avoid the other pitfalls and what are the other pitfalls struggling all the time to get somewhere. Menu have already arrived because the place. This is always down. It's also using someone else's map people say I want to worship. Jesus Christ do you really WanNa wish of Jesus Christ or do you want to have the experience that Jesus I'd do you want to worship Moses or do you want to have the experience Moses. Do you want to worship the Buddha or you only have the expense but I had I would say organized. Religion is buying into somebody. Else's story true spirituality atrocity is not buying anyone story but they're not buying the map but say how did they get there and here is what I'm going to do to get there so don't use other people's maps including mine. I'm just giving directions by the way and pointing the way you don't need to worship my finger pointing the way look in the direction that that way finger points and then if it seems attractive if it's not attractive don't go but don't use other people's map don't try too hard to always improve. Prove yourself you could just as you are. Imagine somebody was perfect. It would be so exasperated to be around them but if you have negative traits buzzed trade. Somebody interested in knowing you because that makes you interesting who just always positive always negative. While I don't WanNa be around you. Don't try too hard to improve yourself except just don't set a timetable. Don't wait for a miracle. Medical the miracle is happening right now and what is that medical existence and the awareness of existence. There's no big America Geico. Why is their existence? And how come you're aware of existence. There's no big a miracle than that if you accept. Yep that is a medical everything else been
South Carolina Gets Its First Win Ever Against UConn
"I have to say you know you're allowed to lose it am. Am gave once in a while. The other team plays better than us. so how `bout you write that somewhere. South Carolina play way better than Connecticut. That's allowed to happen once in a while and it's not like. What did you guys do wrong this year? We're like every other team in the country. God Forbid Horse That Ladies and gentlemen was the voice. As of Gino Auriemma the head coach of the Yukon. huskies on Monday night after they took a loss to the South Carolina gamecocks number one team in the nation. Welcome I'm into your ESPN w women's basketball podcast. Around the Rim I am your host China Robinson joined as always by my fantastic and fabulous producer to Rica. GEICO foster Bradsby and the story of Monday night was not that uconn loss. It wasn't even that South Carolina one because as you know I've been on the South Carolina Allina train for a minute. They've been number one in my AP poll for a while so we knew the gamecocks were probably going to dominate that game. However oh yeah and they did it behind tie? Harris who played forty minutes had nineteen points eleven assists and should be on everyone's national player of the year radar but the story. It was more about looking at that environment. South Carolina eighteen thousand heads pay team thousand fans in colonial life arena. The environment was incredible. You feel it coming through your television and I referenced this on my twitter but when dos daily got to South Carolina. No one saw this happening. No one saw her being successful. Well some of US did but everybody was like. Oh she can't do it there you know but she goes on to win the National Championship. Well how are they gonNA fans well. They got eighteen thousand in their last night. And I said this and I just WanNa references quickly and then we'll move on from this story we've got so much to cover but dawn invested in the marketing of her own team. She put her own staff her own resources out of pocket into building that that program in the community. She shook hands like the. NCAA needs to do a study of how she is built at. Because I don't know about you but it was beautiful. It was amazing. I tweeted about it as well. I took a screen shot from my computer to post that with the with the line. People say that no one watches women basketball. You're right like you can't even say that. Eighteen thousand eight hundred thousand. It was beautiful and just a testament to what can happen When the investment is made in obviously the athletics department is well but shoutout to the gamecocks just had an awesome display of their team but also the environment on Monday night?
Protocol president Tammy Wincup on applying the Politico playbook to tech coverage
"Welcome to the digital podcast Brian. Marcy and today I'm joined by Tammy link-up Tammy is the president of protocol which is a new tech publication which is from the publishers politico. Tammy welcome thank you. Thanks for coming in so explain a little bit. This is not the politico go for tech. It is not good We're super excited to have launched protocol yesterday and it is coming coming from the publisher of Politico Robert Alberton But it has a very very different focus. And so you know I I love to dive into what you know. What what are those one of those pieces you know? We are focused exclusively on technology on the people the power and the politics of Technology Eh. And this idea was generated by Robert over a year ago and really made a decision to actually make it they separate and bring a separate leadership team in a different ethos and focus but build on you know the the spectacular reputation and spectacular spectacular journey. That politico has had and that we are really lucky to kind of be able to build on that brand. But it's it's a separate view on the world suffered audience audience so explain why that even matters like that. It's not just the spin off from politico because there's look there's a lot of advantages to having a new publication that comes out of publication with a reputation Track record and a lot of other things going forward so why does it. I don't know what does it make sense to. It'd be like this is a different company. Well I I get the best of both worlds right. I have the ability to To look at the amazing track record and the amazing using could've story that politico has built And some of that DNA. I absolutely hope to replicate. You're not like recreating the technology stack and all the stuff right. I mean media's heart already why why why. Why would anyone duplicate this stuff? Well I think some of the pieces the best. Look I come from an industry that says you so you take the best of what others having you build upon it and some of that tech stack is just absolutely brilliant and others. You know it was You know it's a thirteen year old old company so we're looking at tools and opportunities and frankly services down the road that we're going to be able to build on. I think that that is actually you know as frankly. Frankly an entrepreneur in this That's actually really exciting to be able to be told that you can you know you can build using all of the muscle muscle memory of being building a really successful digital media company politico and then go and actually focus on a new audience that I now so just to to to stay on this for a little bit the structure so it's not like the editorial team is different but then all the other services are the exact same from politico like it's not like a shared sales force correct nothing short business and there's more advantages because there are a lot of I mean look media is you know particularly subscale media You know that eats into all the margins so explain why it's it's worth recreating a lot of stuff. I get thirteen years old. And maybe some of the Ad Tech Stacks not the best at this point because there's just a lot of style they've invested a lot in I. I believe that there's this top notch and look my sense is that we will. We will use a lot of what they have from a best practices perspective I think you actually have to start not with if You know not with the operation itself you actually have to start. I believe with what we're trying to accomplish. Which is the business in Tech Community that insider cider community is very very different than politics and policy insider community What they care about what they wanna read? Every day it's very business and industry industry focus piece And so you know my belief. Is that the vision of what she wanted. Accomplish has to start with that and then build both the editorial side and the business side for the audience and customer. You know I come from the tech world and come with viewpoint that you have to start with your customer career audience first and then build the editorial the content of the services that you want for that And so some of that is a playbook that politico GEICO has and has deployed wildly successfully and You know we will. We will take that and try and do the same but there are pieces of it. That technology the executive actually wants different. So you say technology executive do you mean an executive at a technology company or an executive at a non quote quote Unquote Technology Company that is dealing with the after effects of technology which is every executive absolutely that is precisely why we know the moment is right for new publications Pacific. lyod tack you. You just nailed it right there. Is that the intersection. It is no longer my adult lifetime. Having spent spent a good chunk of my career in technology it is changed to your point rent of being an industry. Vertical Call Technology L. Story to truly infiltrating and being a part in a Matrix Organization of other industries. Right so having come from Fintech or attack look at health check and so we actually really feel like. There's a gap of where we can go in terms of bridging this kind of tack and mainstream industries and and again from my viewpoint You know there are two book ends of what's out there right now. There is You know you're a business business either attack on enterprise and consumer tack or you're in a big vertical as leader trying to innovate with tack and you're trying to figure out on a daily basis. What's going going on? You either have things that are written for a mass audience for which on the topics that I care about on on. Ai and five G.. Gee and quantum and what's going to happen in Fintech in terms of payment services and things like that you don't get the depth necessarily that you need to actually make decisions for Your Business MHM on the flip side having come from venture backed businesses. It was very very difficult if you weren't a Unicorn or if you're not you know. Thank Company Day to actually find yourself being talked about in the media Unless you're raising money or unless you are announcing some widget okay and so it's not going to be product driven. Obviously there's a lot of quote unquote technology publications over the years where really venture capital Publication correct There's no shortage of people writing about the latest air pods or whatever So you're GonNa leave that aside And obviously technology is now now I. I think it's sort of moved into a few different. I mean it's obviously it's a horizontal story within the changing nature of all industries On the it doesn't side and then there's there's Society Angle And then obviously the government angle which I know you're still going to be covering has a great intersection You you know with with political on that piece. I think he'll you know you'll see us. So there's overlap there's absolutely I the article about California Privacy Law and people scrambling. Yeah try to get rewritten. I mean that could easily be employed right. I think it's interesting like that's a perfect story or even if you look at Linda stories yesterday around ethicists in salesforce. Right I think that's well first. Let's talk about the policy piece rate. That's a story that has policy implications. Has You know state implications. I think the story was very much could be seen on in either publication potentially uh-huh. I think what's fascinating about some of the stories that you saw yesterday on our launch day like Linda Story. Now this is You know those are thorny topics. Those are not bullet point topics. Those are bullet points to we occasionally since I like this You know that's a story that mark. Benny off retreated yesterday. And it. You know it was a story about salesforce but it wasn't necessarily you know it's a tricky issue and I think that that's that's the point on tech right now tech is no longer in in its infancy where we have the promise of kind of all it. Could you know could be. It is a full blown adult and it's it's messy and I think to talk about you know we have to actually go into some of these details around the people Around the politics because suddenly mature quote quote Unquote Power Center. That's having unintended consequences. That of course it is like that. That's that's where it is but we want to. Actually we WANNA hang in those issues and and and and cover them up and you saw the gaps. I guess because I think when you came out Obviously a lot of people say. Oh there's a lot of tech publications and understand Dan and honestly a lot of the stuff I just ignore. Because it's like it depends on how you execute like really like I mean there's always room for new media brand. I feel like I can't think of an area where there are is an room for one. You just have to do better right at the end of the day. We got to have a different Lens so the Lens. That protocol is bringing to this massive Asif issue like how would you sum it up. Yeah I think it's about audience focus and scope Were not writing for everyone right. Just like politico doesn't right or you know is really focused on the decision-makers now if I'm a decision maker in a C. Suite You know are. Are you trying to explain that a little bit. So you're are you. Are you writing to help them do their jobs better or are you helping them. Sort of unpacked these gigantic thorny societal governmental whole like Issues my belief is that if we do that second one right you are helping them do their job better particularly if you're if you're taking If you're taking topics and not just giving them cursory looks so for example. The today we launched a new product called braintrust The question of the week where we go out and actually ask experts parts around that topic That is actually really important because at the end of the day technologies nauseous about the product right. It's about the people making decisions visions in terms of that and the breath of that conversation. If you're sitting in a thin services company or a healthcare company and you're trying to deal with. How am I gonNA use a to better to better look at an issue in the house? You don't necessarily have that network and so how does protocol bring that network to you in a way. That's not a cursory kind of two lines trying to define a Is So our goal is to our newsletter in source code to be able to have that daily actionable invoke kind of start my day knowing at the big level at the high level. What's going on but then to be able to find those in depth You know those in depth conversations which I think you'll see a you'll see us have as well so you get income from politico. You didn't come from the media. said he came from the tech industry and then under this crazy I mean why would you go home to the media industry. This is crazy. Hazy decision explain this. What did you see? I mean because I think it's interesting people There's a lot of advantages that coming in with fresh eyes to an industry and I think a lot of people you know. They think they sort of they know media. Because media's like very tangible I think on one level but then up-close it's like wow a lot of this doesn't make sense right or was it not though. Well I'll tell you soon right Kanye Day then you officially say none of you know. Look I think there are lots of things both personally and

"As geico cell is saying he's not your huge running back who who is monster when it comes to yak yards but he's a slippery running back he can get those extra yards he ranks number one out of running backs when it comes to yards per attempt with someone who has had at least one hundred fifty attached with five point one that's it that's a really good number after the regular season yeah that's yeah that's a full season's just shy ten attempts a game yeah on average and it's you know you're going to you're deep played very well and this has been consistent all you're the one of the things that's interesting about this we talk about creativity I had really thought about this our guest last hour Greg Cosell from NFL is for enough match up on ESPN said this he goes what he thinks the fact that the Texans put to Sean Gibson on I. R. for those of you don't know to Sean Gibson is a safety for this Texans he thinks that is a significant or it was he said meaning full lost he's a veteran safety and bills fans know this the safeties for the bills defense are incredibly important in making sure you guys get it it's what they do is they get only guys lined up to make sure that if they often ships that the number one number two number three receiver to aside are all covered up they got guys covering those guys yeah yeah you'd think a guy like to Sean gets would've been very responsible for that now now you've got somebody else doing that in a second that has struggled to do that yeah so you can bet that maybe Brian tables think you know what if we give them a shift and then another shift and then a motion and change the three to a one over here and the and the street receiver side in the strength and who's number one receiver who's a number three receiver they may get cross step away leave some guys wide open you might see some of that knowing that to Sean Gibson the guy who actually did that for the Texans isn't lined up here is in the game so you might be able to test a guy who's not used to having that responsibility in that manner and get some success out of that you know talking about creativity that may be where you think yeah that's exactly where you would use it yeah the secondary has struggled when you're looking at taxes and take a guy got like Gibson who has had some success back the secondary for them it I will I think him it could play up the play into this match up a lot this this defense hasn't been great against the run either especially with in J. J. watt off the field with what they've allowed only eighty five point four rush yards per game and without what on the field they are allowing a hundred fifty six point eight rush yards per game so we'll see if water can have that much is of an impact in maybe they really do think that what is really going to impact this game so they feel like they can't take gives an out of the game for that reason I know it's two very different positions but if they feel like walking do enough against the front end that you don't have to have as much on the backend which they haven't been too successful in the secondary this season they've they've given up a lot of big plays they're not great on third down there not great in the red zone we'll see it'll be very interesting to see how this defense plays Josh Allen in his squad top of the hour mark vandermeer play by play voice of Houston Texas going to join us you can call us and say what do you think a bills win against the Texans will look like eighty three oh five fifty one eight eight eight five fifty two five fifty Steve Tasker medical out here till three o'clock this is one bills live presented from Michael I to help from one bills drive in this is Buffalo Bills radio W.
