Google Pixel 4a Has Ushered in a New Era of Excellent Cheap Phones
"Google announced the Pixel for a phone with a blog post with some with superbeets. The Pixel for a has a five point eight, one, inch, twenty, three, forty by ten, eighty, sixty hertz led display snapdragon at seven thirty g system on a chip six gigs of Ram one, hundred, twenty, eight gibbs gigs of S. two point one storage and a thirty one, Forty Mil. Battery a single twelve megapixel camera on the back and an eight megapixel camera on the front and a USB. USB Port and a headphone Jack as well phone. Wow. Know. What about that? He has a bigger battery than the four. A smaller top vessels well, doesn't the depth sensing required for air gestures consensus it's nicer looking than the four. It's not as powerful as the iphone se or one plus words, but it's also about one hundred dollars cheaper the Pixel for as available for preorder. Now, for three, hundred, Fifty Dollars Shipping on August twentieth. One more thing at the end of its post announcing the four, a Google also announced it with Havi Five G. version of the quarry for four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars and a five G. Pixel five coming this autumn. Yes. So the only feature, we didn't know because of the long delay was everybody thought this was going to come out in May and almost every detail about it leaked over the intervening months was the price and the price seems to be everyone's favourite feature at three, hundred, fifty dollars. It's one hundred dollars exactly cheaper than the one plus Nord, it's about fifty to one hundred, fifty dollars cheaper than the iphone e depending on what model you're talking about. It's quite a bit cheaper than other mid range phones as well but then Google goes and undermines or as some call it Osbourne's itself. By announcing, it will have a five G. version of the out in the autumn almost like saying don't buy yet. We're GONNA have a version with five G. also pixel five, which we kind of knew that that one's less than undermining but the version of the four, al cost more cost four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars. So if you're into that three, hundred, fifty dollars price point I guess maybe you don't wait for the. Five G. Because you're like five won't be widespread for a few years anyway. But I don't know that it seems like Google just wanted to get this out there and say look okay, we made it. It was a pain maybe they're not making as many of them as they had wanted in. So they're not pushing it as hard. I don't know but it's an odd launch for something that for for people who want to. Mind their mind. Their pennies is a very attractive phone. It is that said, the timing is curious as you mentioned I mean listen a five hundred dollar phone. A lot of people are like, oh, that sounds great I mean that's not even really expensive based on you know what a flagship phone will run you these days it kind of feels like to me that. There is some supply chain issues going on here Google's leg at just just released. And like sell for real cheap and you know, let's move the merch. and. Then we've got we've got other stuff going on this to push so hard since we didn't make as many of them kind. You're Kinda right it kind of feels like that. Yeah. The one thing and Roger I. Don't know if you want to weigh in on this for people who want the bargain price three, hundred, fifty dollars very attractive it's not very future-proof. That's not dragging seven thirty is not the seven sixty it's not even the best mid level snapdragon processor it obviously doesn't have five G. I mean we you end up spending more because you'll have to replace the sooner. I would say that for a lot of people like, for example, my wife, she wouldn't use a lot of the additional features. She just needs a phone that does all the basic does the context does a photos I can share through instagram or facebook. The only problem with her phone is it's no longer being supported right? It's a, it's a five year old one plus three and so it works great but it just it has no, no longer has any updates for security and all available. APSO having something like this also means that you know you get a new phone that's inexpensive but it's also part of the cold Google we strip it down to the bare essentials. There's no bloat wear that's added and it does what it does like eighty percent of what most people do on the phone. Yeah and if she still rocking a one plus three, this processor will probably be fine for her. She's going to be doing heavily intense things would use the processor. So yeah, that makes sense.
After 87 years, Washington's NFL team changed in two months
"In the National Ball League for the soon to be ex Washington Redskins among the three teens who played in the NFL. He is Brandon Noble, played defensive tackle in the National Football League, and he joins me and Courtney right here on ESPN Radio Brandon, many people did not believe that this day would come. That Washington changed their name from the Redskins. Whatever that name is going to be, but you play for that organization. You know exactly what that Brian has always meant to that team. And to that city. What are your thoughts about the Redskins no longer about to be Redskins when it comes to being a football team with that name in the NFL. I mean, it's definitely Freddy. Hard to wrap my head around, right? So I grew up in Virginia down the virginity Redskin fan base there. You know what I spent seven years. In the lead. We're basically in the NFC East. Whether I played for the Cowboys on the run on just I mean, growing up a football fan, right? I mean, Russians are part of NFL tradition. Just the name right so So you know Cowboys Redskins Cowboys Eagles Cowboys giants like that. The whole thing like that is that is that my childhood like Joe Gibbs is in the heart and all that stuff, so it's really hard to wrap your head around. I know there was a strong push a few years ago in and dance cider time, fended it off, kind of where we are right now 2020 and you know there's a lot of financial pressure from stuff like that, and it looks like he's gonna do it. Yeah. After 87 years. It took just two months for this whole thing to come to fruition where Something's going to be changed, as you know, growing up in that area and playing for the franchise. This name change has been discussed for decades. I'm curious what you were a player. How often did that topic come up in the early two thousand's about a name change? And do you remember maybe the first instances as a player either being asked about it by media members or where it was truly being discussed? Well, you know, I mean, it was. It was definitely kind of it was circled around every once in a while, and I think you know such a different climate. Uh, you know, back in the 19 hundreds at the early two thousand's, we were in it and everything has become No So political now, so just kind of you know, here, there, it's you know what? This night of faces time It took a long time definitely did. It's definitely something that's been talked about for a long, long time. You know that that fan base is not going to be happy. But at the end of the day, you know, look, you know it's capitalism, right? I mean, he felt the pressure that accent from all from all the big sponsors. You know Amazon self, just about body, right? I mean, that's really what it boils down to is a business. Know any treat it like that, and he's going to do it. And I did it a same time. I'm still gonna have a tough time with whatever you know. Hopefully the warriors or something simple like that. So it's not too far away from kind of, you know the theme. I guess it's it's so it's hard to wrap my head around.

Minnesota Attorney General Sues Exxon Over Climate Change
"A growing number of states and cities are asking courts to hold fossil fuel companies accountable for the costs of climate change. Minnesota is the latest state to file a lawsuit like this. The state's Attorney General Keith Ellison claims that Exxon, Mobil the American, Petroleum Institute and Coke Industries strategized to deceive the public about carbon emissions and attorney general joins us now. Welcome Bank you for having me. What evidence do you have? These organizations intentionally deceived the public. Well, you know we have. Documents such as One, stamped proprietary information from Exxon, engineering, which says the CO two concentration. The atmosphere has increased in the rate of Co. two release from ANTHRO GENYK sources appears to be doubling every fifteen years. The most widely held theory is that the increase is due to fossil fuel combustion, and that document was from when that document was from October. Sixteen nineteen seventy nine. Th that's so. They knew in seventy nine, and then they lied about it actually they produced propaganda. Woods, which essentially said things like who told you the earth is warming chicken little? And then other ones, the most serious problem with catastrophic global warming is that it may not be true. They directly contradicted what their research around. We can prove that and we will. Today, there's a lot of good information about the causes of climate change and the consequences that will have and yet Americans still commute by car and take cross country flights, so tell me how you can argue that anyone's behavior would have changed if Americans had known more earlier Oh. There's a lot of technologies that we could have engaged in a lot of different sorts of things including moving toward renewable energy sources including rapid transit that might be less carbon emitting. There are a lot of things that people are doing right now to reduce the carbon footprint. We've seen dramatic increase in solar and wind usage in the last few years. Mean the world is adjusting? What if we would've just had a ten or twenty years to make that adjustment rather than the limited amount of time that we have now now the first paragraph of this lawsuit you mentioned that climate change will disproportionately impact people living in poverty and people of color, other climate change lawsuits have not put this issue, front and center. Why did you WANNA put equity in the foreground of your case? Well codes is true. Which is always important? You know to make sure that we tell the story about what's really going on here. So many civil rights groups that work on issues of racial and economic justice don't always factor in the environmental realities that people of color and low income people face. I mean the fact is. Is that environmental justice and environmental harms that disproportionately affect communities of color and low income people? Is a civil rights issue, and it should be treated as that. We've got to make sure that as people are working on criminal justice and things like that factoring environmental justice as urgent as it is, give us an example or two of how climate change has already affected the lives of Minnesotans well I. Mean if you're a farmer, you probably have seen much wetter feels than you've ever seen Those wetter feels delayed. You're growing season. We've seen you've seen infestation in. In Pass that are impacting There are a lot the range of things that MINNESOTANS are seeing. Every day. We saw many of them just last week. One person who was with us was an environmentalist who is on the wider nation of GIBB. Way And she was talking about how rice production has been dramatically impacted, which is a she called a sacred food of the way people, and how the just climate change, the traumatic dramatically affected how they can harvest that crop. We reached out to the defendants for comment and Exxon Mobil responded calling the lawsuit. A politically motivated campaign against energy companies, saying that wastes taxpayer money. How do you respond to that? City by wasted money into them, you know they need to come in come to the table and talked with us about how they're going to mitigate the harm that they caused. You know they need to discourse their profits. They need to start telling the truth about the deception that they have put forward any to help us get on the path to renewable green energy. That's what they need to do but of course you know they've lied from the start. There's still lying. So that's just the way they do business you know there have been a lot of other cases like yours and so far none have been successful New York's attorney general lost a case against. Against Exxon Mobil others or taking a long time to resolve, what makes you think this one will be successful where others so far have not been? We have great confidence in Minnesota's consumer loss I mean this lawsuit claimed fried failure to warn multiple and separate violations of consumer fraud statutes deceptive trade practices. We can show that they have done it now. I'll never underestimate their ability to op. Escape trick and avoid, but we're even more confident in our ability to put on a strong powerful case that will require that. They have to be held accountable, so imagine for a moment that you do in this case. What do you want the impact or consequences to be? What we want is to disgorge their profits we want. We're seeking out remedial and injunctive relief in restitution. And we believe there needs to be a corrective public education campaign. They need to stop lying. Start telling the truth. They need to teach people that what they had been saying wasn't true that there that there is one there is climate change to it's caused by fossil fuels and its effects are catastrophic. We believe that the money that they have received based on their deception is ill gotten gains. They should not be allowed to retain it. Minnesota Attorney General Keith and thank you for speaking with us. Thank

Tyler Gibbs and Jack Irving of Toyota Racing Development's TD2 driver development program
"Now. Let's get to part two of our conversation with Tyler Gibbs and Jack Irving just this I want to give you guys a chance to put some names with some faces here people who are listening. We've mentioned Christopher Bell. You guys mentioned Harris and Burton. I was reading a motorsports analytics story today in which Jack was quoted very highly on Chandler. Smith just wanted to give you a chance to tell us a little about. Who'S IN THE LINEUP? Right now and we're the names. We should be watching it from the Toyota racing development driver program. So it's funny. I think we have some remarkable kids coming up of all different ages all different ranges But it's still development like Chandler. Smith is is a gifted driver. I mean in in we've been with Chandler for three or four years i. I don't remember how long it's been a few years. He's been fantastic. He's always been a strong late model. Racer Kinda in his family team was was quite gifted enabled to kind of compete at a very young age with some very high level guys in racing and then he transferred that into Arca adventuring end and has been fantastic and the more he matures the better. He gets Which is really exciting. He's similar to like a younger Jones in that respect where he's young and been around it and he seemed so much older in a car and so much more mature in so that is translated into the truck races he ran last year and and I have some pretty high expectations of him as he does of themselves but he's definitely one of our up and comers that is on the young side mean seventeen and still developing and then obviously there's the Raphael Lazard the neckaces that we've been with for quite a while and I think most people know of Kazan truck races now. That were pretty happy about. And then there's there's lots of kids that we actively engage with and develop in all different areas were lucky not geographically focused either because we have teams all over the place and that's helped us engage with maybe some kids we probably wouldn't necessarily always get access to so there's some good kids in California. There's kids racing for Keith in Indiana. There's just there's just a lot of strong drivers out there the thing that's so interesting though. Is that their kids and kids. You never know what's going to happen so it's still development. I mean it's it's People. WanNa say whatever they want to say about how what what it takes to make it? But they're a work ethic focused drive a passionate WanNa do it is all super important to to make it and at some point maintaining that from fourteen fifteen. Sixteen seventeen is very very difficult to do. Know we can talk about it all the time about being focused in wanting it and all that but the proof is in Monday through Friday. And how hard? They're working what they're doing and to to be on top of their game and and for whatever reason at times that lapses and you know you could take a great kid who's Fourteen Jesse. Love is a kid we've been with since he was twelve. I think thirteen stupid. How young that was East we're really excited about him and you know then. There's kids like Geo celts. Who came out of nowhere in dirt and had outlawed program in in our racing with us and pavement. That's a little bit kind of a different road that he traveled and then we have Holly Holland and Greasy Trotter. Who really come aboard and done a really good job in kind of in all of our testing have looked quite good still have a lot of development to do. You know there's there's kids we lost Based on Ford coming in that is painful to so. There's I think there's a lot of good crop of young kids coming out racing and as long as they all continue to work hard developing keep good people around him then hopefully we'll see him down the road. We really good group. We have a good team of kids. it's exciting to them kind of interact with each other watch the quote unquote older kids. Who may not actually be older but have been in higher level than others and back and forth and so he has Jackson. We're really excited about about our kids. You mentioned most of the ones I attend to hit their Jesse loved Yosemite. I think Logan. Cv also part of the lineup. I believe I mean so. Logan was Logan is not as involved now. We still are working through some things to see if there's ways to work together it's just difficult to the process is difficult and how everybody fits in where they go. I mean Logan is ridiculously talented. I mean it's it's just finding the path and making it work is always hard. You know I mean you look at the McNally Lineup or venturing lineup with I mean. You have Corey Haim and drew dollar and Michael Self Austin Hills Rachel H at hr e and in. He's ridiculously good. And He's twenty four with two kids for God's sake so I mean it's awesome right. I mean in in in in Austin Hugely Involved Maximum Laughlin with with a jury in there. There is an amazing group of kids in. What's interesting is we're kind of lucky. We have some really driven dedicated guy who want participate and show up every day. And I mean that's what's crazy about the performance central a lot of those that we talked about minus the group their local to North Carolina. Right you get into dirt kids in our dirt. Kids are Cap. GotTa be the younger kids we've ever had consistently with Daisin Ken McIntosh and Buddy I mean it. Just these they're all babies right in and so they're and they're out. There racing are trying to raise eighty times a year. I mean it's it's just an amazing amazing situation but I think we've been very lucky. I mean part of it is. I think what we've done is a little bit different and and our teams of Baden in. That's been a big part of it. That's it goes back to what I said before. The integration of the teams is pretty special and something. I think I'm probably most proud about. Is that all those teams engage in actively discuss things with each other to try to help develop the drivers.
COVID-19: What the Autopsies Reveal
"Gibbs reports on how pathologists are starting to get a much closer look at the damage that covert nineteen does to the body by carefully examining the lungs hearts kidneys and other organs of people who have died while infected with the novel Corona Virus. Wait spoke with experts at the Cleveland Clinic. And the University of Washington who have performed these high risk autopsies very few of which have been done so far in the United States. Covert nineteen is a new disease and doctors have been struggling to figure out how best to treat it putting people on ventilators as always a last resort for other diseases typically about half the patients who go onto a ventilator do not survive but Kobe nineteen patients seemed to do even worse on mechanical ventilation a study in the UK found that only about a third of corona virus patients survived that experience and in a report published on April Twenty second in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers found even more alarming outcomes recently in New York City analyzing data from twelve large New York hospitals during March. They found that out of three hundred twenty patients on ventilators. Two hundred and eighty two died so only about one in nine survived mechanical ventilation. We know this. New Corona virus damages the lungs. But how exactly does it differ in important ways from influenza and other VIRAL INFECTIONS? Some experts have suggested that the virus can infect and damage the heart as well and maybe the kidneys or even the brain when people are seriously ill with Cova nineteen. They seem to be at higher. Risk of blood clots. But it's really hard to determine from lab tests and fuzzy medical images whether it's the virus damaging these other organs or whether the body's own immune system fouling up the works as it generates massive inflammatory response to combat the corona virus. Any kind of lung injury can result in acute respiratory distress syndromes. This is a disease process that we've known about for a long. It's a very typical pattern of injury that we see in the lungs when they're injured for many many different kinds of reasons. That's disarray Marshall. A pathologist at the University of Washington. She says that it's often the cascading organ failure triggered by acute respiratory distress syndrome or A. Rds The causes elderly people to die from influenza and firefighters to die from smoke inhalation and cancer patients to die from reactions to chemotherapy. The pressing question. We need to answer for Kobe. Nineteen is whether it's just a rds that makes the disease deadly or whether this new diseases different and even more complicated to treat them what doctors have seen before well if you watch TV you know what medical examiners do when they want to figure out what killed somebody. There's just no substitute for a thorough and detailed autopsy earlier this month researchers published the first English language autopsy results on people who died after becoming infected with the novel Corona Virus. The paper appeared in the American Journal of Clinical Pathology on April tenth. It describes to interesting cases both from Oklahoma case one was seventy seven year old man who had cycled between fever and chills for six days before finally calling for an ambulance on March twentieth. He had high blood pressure and some other health issues but no cough on the trip to the hospital. He was gasping for air and his heart stopped by the time they arrived at the emergency room. It was too late. The gentleman had not seen a doctor for his fever. He had not been tested for Kobe. Nineteen so it wasn't clear what had caused the heart attack taking his life. The Medical Examiner's team in Oklahoma City decided that it was important to find out they swabbed the man's nasal passages and also his lungs both swabs tested positive for the SARS. Kobe virus and chest xrays showed what they described as complete white out in. What would normally be dark empty lung? Cavities doing an autopsy on a Kobe. Positive body is risky but they had the special protective equipment and high containment room. They needed to do it and maybe they could learn something that would help save some of the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who will fight cove in nineteen for their lives in the months to come so they laid his body on the dissecting table and they opened them up. The team contacted a well-known lung pathologist at the Cleveland Clinic to help them interpret what they saw especially as they examined tissue samples from bears organs under the microscope. My name is Sanjay Mukhopadhyay. I'm director of pathology at the Cleveland Clinic. Autopsies give you another deeper look into tissue. That is actually several layers of resolution higher than what you can get from a history a physical examination routine laptops even the highest resolution CD. Scans none of them. Even approach the resolution that you can get from an autopsy. The medical examiner had noticed that. This man's lungs were two to three times heavier than usual. A Common Consequence of AIDS pathologist actually referred to that syndrome by a different name. One that describes the end result of the disease lung cells. They call it diffuse. Lv alert damage in that gentleman. We found diffuse Alveoli damage under the microscope. When you take a breath and it goes down your windpipe. The windpipe actually branches and to do and when goes into the left lung and one goes into the right and then those branches of the windpipe branch like the branches of a tree. You know they get smarter than sponsored smaller as you go. Further and further away and the end point of the branch is what we call an Lvn Louis or colloquially you can call it an air sac and what that is just a very tiny balloon. You need a microscope to see it. And they're just cows and thousands of those little balloons in the lung. That's what makes up the lamp so each time. You inhale you inflate thousands of microscopic Vealy as the ED enters into that little balloon with oxygen in it. The point of the balloon is to take that oxygen into the bloodstream. The wall of the balloon has little blood vessels in it so in the normal language. Dicap- breath the oxygen goes from the middle of the balloon into the one of the balloon. And that's where the arteries are and the oxygen goes into your blood cells. Red Blood Cells. We call them. And then that Dixit back to the heart and the heart center the oxygen to the rest of the body for this exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide to work properly. The thin lining of the air SAC has to be very close to the walls of the blood vessels. Now what happens in in actually in any severe viral infection is that the virus starts causing damage reading a digest. I which is the back of the throat and then all the way down so all the way down the windpipe down the branches to the smallest branches and then into the air sex and when it gets into the AIR SACS. Call that a viral pneumonia. What's happening is actually. The virus is damaging the walls of the those little webs of capillaries that surround the walls of the air. Sacs start to leak proteins fluids white blood cells and debris from destroyed lung seep into the air sacs the debris clogs the balloons. But maybe even more important it also thickens the walls of the air sacs. Literally it's making a barrier for the oxygen to go from the middle of the relates to the bloodstream and so this is the reason that oxygen levels are so low in these patients who are very sick from ovid. The researchers concluded that case won the seventy seven year old man had died from Kobe. Nineteen even though he had never been diagnosed with it. Mukhopadhyay said he was struck by similar. The pattern of organ damage was to what he's used to seeing from autopsies on people who died from other viral infections. It's actually very similar to what happens in influenza and at just to mention a few other examples. Sars you know the SARS from two thousand to two thousand three identical merced Middle Eastern disparaties syndrome identical findings. I did autopsies and deported them on H. One and one when that happened the swine flu identical findings and I give you one more example. You know the when the vaping thing happened just recently and many people were getting sick from the most sick patients but actually developing diffuse. Lbj damage case too was different. This man had to the hospital a day earlier on March nineteenth. He was only forty two but had myo tonic. Muscular dystrophy a hereditary disease that causes muscles to weaken or atrophy. Sometimes so much that food can back up from the stomach. Go down the wrong tube into the lungs where causes bacterial pneumonia? He felt sharp abdominal pains and went to the hospital where a cat scan showed fluid in his lungs just hours later his heart gave out any passed away although he was labelled as community acquired pneumonia and died and was found to be covert positive. The microscopic examination. This patient does not support the idea that he died of Gobert so there was no damage instead. They found food particles and bacterial infection in the airway clear signs of aspirational pneumonia. So case to died with cove in nineteen but he did not die of covert nineteen. Which makes it very interesting because it brings up the issue of. How often is this happening? How often are people who are PAS? Different went on a nasal swab dying of things other than Kobe. I put that question to Desert Marshall whom we heard from earlier. I'm the director of autopsy after De Services at the University of Washington Medical Center since early. March Marshall has performed more than a dozen autopsies of people who died after testing positive for corona virus infection. She says the results of those autopsies have been submitted to a Medical Journal for publication but are still undergoing peer review. Marshall says that the risk of infection that this fires poses has changed how they perform all autopsies regardless of whether the person was suspected to have covert nineteen. Or not so. We've actually started to swab all of our students and get those results before will perform an autopsy in our facility. That isn't the negative pressure sweet so his Marshall also found that like case to in Oklahoma some patients are dying of something else but turning out to have corona virus infection as well we have not. We have not had any unexpected positive results yet. It's still a limited number but of the probably fifteen that we've done. We have not had a positive comeback where we weren't expecting it. And what about the finding from case one in Oklahoma here in Washington are most of the Kobe? Nineteen patients dying from more or less standard AIDS or the autopsies revealing evidence of the virus infecting and damaging other organs as well hearing concerns of the clinicians and folks on the front lines there's the virus infecting the heart or is it just kind of secondary affects related to the critical illness. Is there excess? Clotting related to this disease. Different things like that. It looks like it's helping us to see that Cova did is actually causing typical acute respiratory distress syndrome. Initially there were thoughts that it was behaving a bit differently. But I think as we get more numbers of people and there's less of the individual variability the vast majority of these cases are showing the typical pathologic features of acute respiratory distress and Which we call a diffuse Alveoli damage. Pathology it does look like it. Is that phenomenon and there's not something Speaking out pathologically. That's different in a way that will inform them that you know. They should probably continue to use. The evidence based tried and true therapies for areas in particular marshal says. They aren't seeing an unusual number of small blockages and blood vessels. That would require treatment beyond the usual blood thinners such as Heparin nor has her group or other. She has heard from around. The country found the corona virus causing serious heart infections in the autopsies. They
"gibbs" Discussed on Revision Path
"The beginning I mentioned I'm a UI designer if you just met me. I would consider myself a serial entrepreneur from a very very personal note. I would consider myself an Afro Hippie Goth from there. It's pretty much me modern hippie tree hugger plus the Goth side myself so the alternative side of myself so from there actually designed jewelry when I was in high school and it's kind of grown from ear chains to jewelry. I made on accident really I was trying to make appear in. It turned into these cool spike. Looking things have kinda expanded into that and then growing into that moral alternative lifestyle recognized that I was gone from there. I wanted to showcase. People like Black Goths get a lot of crap because one where black already but then too because black people can't be got you hear that a lot still let people can't be alternative like people can be nerdy so from there. I pretty much submitted for a scholarship while I was at. Ut Arlington to do this project. And I ended up winning and I was able to interview some cool. Got People and I painted a portrait series of them in their coup GOV outfits and they're beautiful faces nice and that's on the website to new black studio. No that's actually only on my instagram. Okay the DISEA- unique instagram. I have a little story. That's focused on my work in progress as I'm working on it and as well as the final products. I got six paintings to per person for now but that's another project. I hope to really expand on because I didn't get to do so many people as I wanted. It's difficult to find Black Austin Texas. To be honest. Seen here is very white so I kinda do my my research in that. So maybe if more people know they listen to this interview we can. We can get you some more black costs. Now it'd be alright well does array gives. I WanNa thank you so so much for for coming on the show you know. I've mentioned Kinda throughout you know this interview that this is sort of happening this really kind of interesting junction in society right now but I think also just from hearing your story like your interesting place in your career right now as well. You know you told me this before. We started recording. That you know this is kind of your I like full time salaried GIG and now. This is happening where you gotta work from home. You're trying to sort of adjust to that. And I think you know your perseverance. Just from what you've told me about your creative background your creativity with this portrait series the jewelry designing you certainly strike me as someone that is able to kind of easily up. Change the situation as so. I feel like we're just seeing you get started with what you can do. And then you know. Granted granted this you know is a very weird time for everyone right now but I feel like you certainly have what it takes to go forward into accomplish those dreams that you WanNa make happen so thank you so much for coming on the show.

Lung Cancer Screen Could Be Easy-pee-sy
"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm wait gibbs. All imagine getting screened for early stage lung cancer simply by taking a deep breath from an inhaler and then peeing into a cup. Sangita Baccio a professor of Health Sciences and engineering at MIT described. How that might be possible in Ted Talk? She gave in two thousand sixteen. What if you had a detector that was so small that it could circulate in your body? Find the tumor all by itself and send a signal to the outside world. It sounds a little bit like science fiction but actually nanotechnology allows us to do. Just that his idea was to invent nontoxic nanno probes. That doctors could put inside your blood or lungs or guts to detect a tiny tumors. When they're easier to treat before they grow big enough to spread throughout the body and damaged vital organs. I dream that one day instead of going into an expensive screening facility to get a colonoscopy or a mammogram or a PAP smear that you could get a shot. Wait an hour and do a urine test on a paper strip in two thousand seventeen bought. His team reported a proof of concept experiment in nature. Biomedical Engineering that demonstrated Nanna probes like this working to detect early stage ovarian cancer in mice and now the group has refined this technology further to create a screening test for lung cancer. That is more sensitive than the C. T. Scans used today. The team of Harvard and MIT researchers described their work in the April first issue of science translational medicine lung cancer accounts for nearly a quarter of all cancer deaths in the US each year in large part because most cases of lung cancer are not caught until after the disease has already spread to other sites yet win lung. Cancer is caught and treated early the majority of patients survived the disease for at least five years but ct screening for lung. Cancer is not widely used around the world. Because it's expensive. And more than ninety percent of positive tests turn out to be benign growths not cancer. So this kind of screening leads to a lot of unnecessary and invasive biopsies in. Battista study which was done on mice genetically engineered to develop lung tumors very similar to those seen. In people the Nanna probes were able to detect tumors about fifty times smaller than other screening methods and it produced. No false positives. The NETA probes are designed to release reporter molecules when they come near certain kinds of lung tumors. Once released the reporters pass into the blood get filtered by the kidneys and then exit the body in the urine. The group is now working to repackage the nano probes into a form that could be inhaled as a powder or through a nebulizer if that succeeds then the technology will have to proceed through several years of clinical trials before it could be used to screen people for lung cancer. And I hope that what this means is that one day we can detect tumors in patients. Sooner than ten years after they've started growing and that this would lead to earlier treatments and that we could save more lives than we can today with early detection.
Coronavirus Hot Zone: The View from the U.S. Epicenter
"Wayt GIBBS was a member of the board of editors and a senior writer at Scientific American from Nineteen Ninety. Three to two thousand six. He's contributing editor. And he's in a unique position to bring us reporting an insights about the current corona virus pandemic. While at scientific American Gibbs wrote numerous articles that gave him experience highly relevant to the current situation in one thousand nine hundred nine he wrote a piece titled Trailing Virus to research that article. He traveled into the hot zone of the highly lethal Nipah virus outbreak in Malaysia. Like Corona virus that one also spread from bats to people he co wrote the two thousand five article preparing for a pandemic the plan to fight a new flu which has obvious relevance for our current situation. That article is currently available free on our website. He interviewed Bill Gates for two thousand sixteen. Qna called Bill Gates views. Good data as key to global health. That piece is also up on the website and Gibbs wrote the two thousand sixteen article. What ails the human race about a project called the global burden of disease which began a new chapter in academia logical modelling that work originated at the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics in Seattle where it continues to this day. And we're gibbs plans to go for reporting for future podcast which brings us to the second factor that makes Gibbs's situation unique in addition to being assigns writer of great expertise in the area of Gibbs lives in Kirkland Washington the epicenter of the US Corona virus outbreak. So what we envision for. This series of podcasts is a combination of traditional science reporting and first person accounts from Gibbs about the situation in Kirkland and the surrounding area where the virus has so far hit the hardest in the US we plan on posting at least one podcast a week for the foreseeable future as the corona virus situation plays out and now. Here's what Gibbs. There's some weeks when history seems to unfold before our eyes. This past week has been one of those in the United States. And here in Kirkland Washington where I live. We have a front row seat to the fast growing. Coruna virus epidemic. My neighborhood is ground zero the hot zone on February twenty ninth we learned that Cova Nineteen had claimed its first fatality in the US here in this city of about ninety thousand on the shores of Lake Washington just across the bridge from Seattle. Is I read about the man in his fifties who had died at Evergreen Health Hospital but it seemed a distant and abstract threat suddenly felt immediate and berry real. I am a man in his fifties. I walked across my living room and looked out the window at evergreen health just on the hill less than a mile away. I thought okay here. We go we. In Kirkland and King County will be the guinea pigs testing how the public health systems in America cope with a crisis that scientists warned us would inevitably come that we could have planned for but that his founders unready our experts in elected officials and employers are scrambling to keep up with the torrent of new scientific information about cove in nineteen and the virus that causes it which goes by. The name SARS Kobe to here in Washington state. They seem to be doing their best to act on that information as they make tough decisions about what to shutdown what to keep open and what to tell the public in this episode Alexandra one particularly difficult question that officials face when to close schools. I'll talk with the local eighth grader. Who's online petition? To close schools in our district has attracted more than thirty thousand signatures will hear. King County's Public Health Officer explained why urged schools to remain open for now as long as they don't have any confirmed cases of the disease and we'll hear from experts at Johns Hopkins University and from Anthony Voucher. The Director of the National Institute of ALLERGY AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES. About the mystery of why so few children have become seriously ill with cove in nineteen. But I I need to explain what the past week was like. Ear in Kirkland Cove in nineteen role do our city like a psychological sue. Nami sweeping aside other topics of conversation. Actually a a wildfire is probably a better metaphor infections. Have jumped quickly and unpredictably from one spot to another with responders racing behind to catch up like the wildfire smoke that now darkened skies across the Pacific northwest each summer. This epidemic has cast a pall on daily life on the other side of the hill from my house. About a half mile.
Newman injuries not life-threatening after crash
"Ryan Newman in serious condition but his injuries non life threatening that's after a fiery crash that sent the former Daytona five hundred champ airborne on the final lap of the great American race day Hammond came way Tories for the second year row after clearing away from that crash Hammons team owner Joe Gibbs apologizing though for celebrating not realizing the severity of that rack race of the start of their focus everybody stars so around yeah there's some people may so get yourself so hopefully I we
2020 Daytona 500 ends in scary crash involving Ryan Newman
"Seven before I go any farther for those of you who went to bed early relatively early on Monday you made out of her the update on Ryan Newman very scary I'm not just scary looking crash but scary in reality crashed sometimes they look worse than they really are but in this case on the final turn at Daytona there and they're coming through the tri oval Ryan Newman got bumped from behind by Dave Blaney and then as he turned and made a you know made a right hand turn turn and slammed into the wall he's he's up there on the track and it's Corey love joy who comes in behind it kind of gets his nose underneath Newman's car and the car flipped up in the air and lands on its hood and then go sliding all the way from where it was all the way to the you know to the start finish line and across the finish line so he technically finished in fourth in the race believe it or not because his momentum carried him across the finish line but his car was completely mangled it was it was a pile of rubble there was fire all around if there was fuel spilling out of his vehicle was so badly damaged and he took a long time for them to get him out of the car it's a really scary even as Denny Hamlin ends up in victory lane and and there was a subdued celebration but I don't think they had any idea how serious it was with Ryan Newman it took a long time for them to get him out of the car and they were they they had to put the car back over so they could they could on trap them but they also you they put out the fire they brought in an ambulance they put a stretcher right next to the car that they put up these black screens all around and they required that media left pit road so they weren't allowing any media to be anywhere near and I I think that set off a lot of worst imagination and worst case scenario possibilities as it turned out Ryan was awake when they got him out of the cars we need help but there's now video out there and and I had gotten gotten a report a report I'd gotten a a text from a friend of mine who works for five Oct that the video crews had seen that he was awake and so we don't know anything else about his condition just that at least for a time when they pulled out of the car he was conscious which you know I was positive about hopeful but that he was rushed right to the trauma center at the Halifax Medical Center and then it was quiet for another hour at least in there was nothing which again sometimes leads people to to assume the worst thankfully around ten oh five or so eastern time there was an update from the executive vice president of NASCAR Steve o'donnell Ryan Newman is being treated at Halifax Medical Center he's in serious condition but doctors have indicated his injuries or non life threatening we appreciate your thoughts and prayers and ask that you respect the privacy of Ryan and his family during this time we appreciate your patience and cooperation and will provide more information as it becomes available this is the same with the NASCAR is used to stay with that Roush racing has used to stay with us all righty Newman's Twitter they're sticking to the same sex line statement so we don't know anything else about his injuries the extent of his injuries but that doctors have said his injuries are not life threatening so that's the best news is in serious condition I he's stable but we don't do anything else he could have very serious injuries but thankfully they're not life threatening so wait to hear something else from Halifax Medical Center hoping for something early on this Tuesday and a lot of fans obviously you're praying for I'm at dell worrying and and wanting to know if there's any updates so we just want to pass that along from NASCAR Virginie Hammadi with his second straight Daytona five hundred and it was a pretty incredible last lap of racing that was legit for most of it until they had that contact but he and his team owner Joe Gibbs were royally criticized for celebrating for being in victory lane for taking photos for the confetti and all that but I hope that people will cut them a little slack because the track is enormous in victory lane is not near where where they were attending to Ryan Newman and you know it if you know anything about Joe Gibbs he's classy he's he's a man of integrity he's kind of this is not a man who would be carelessly celebrating with wild abandon and and not being worried about another driver because he's been in NASCAR for a long time he's got drivers are in these positions all the time and so after the fact both Denny Hamlin and Joe Gibbs were we're trying to explain that they just they didn't know it's a weird balance of your excitement and happiness for yourself but obviously someone's health and their families you're bigger than any wind and in any sport so you know we're we're just hoping for the best I say to everybody out there some people may have sauces have all these guys are celebrating when there's a serious issue going on so hopefully I apologize there by but we really didn't know we got no winner circle and then that's when people told us later on the winner's circle so I wanted to explain that there were one so again I believe Joe gives deserves the benefit of the doubt because he's again a man of integrity that's all he's ever been whether he was a football whether he was in NASCAR this is a guy who really does care about the people who work for any cares about that just people in general is very
How To Achieve Financial Freedom In 10 Years Or Less with Brad Gibb
"Ryan say what's up to fire nation and sheer so the interesting about yourselves. That most people don't know what is up fire nation. Hey this is Ryan Lee and his Brad and guys The thing that most people don't about us We are to financial strategist and so many people think that we have all these degrees and pedigree one of us does one of us doesn't so I'm actually a high school dropouts And Bradley give over here is I have more degrees than fingers on one hand so so the interesting thing is how the two of US combined with our perspectives around money and finance. What it all means to help empower people in their financial planning. Well I love it and fire nation as I alluded to in the intro. We're GONNA be talking about how you can achieve financial freedom and we're talking ten years or less. We're not talking by the time you know thirty years. Forty years have gone by. Of course you'll be five x ten x down the road by them. We're talking in this decade fire nation. It is something that's been a focus of mine. One of the reasons I moved to Porto Rico. Three and a half years ago that might come up a little further on this conversation. And these guys. They've been helping people they've been connected with some great entrepreneurs actually about to be going to funnel hacking lives look continuing to up. Their education surround themselves with the right people. Suspicious breakdown four fire nation at the top this episode what Financial Freedom Actually Means John. I love that question. I mean you know. There's so many misconceptions. I think a lot of people throw around the idea. The concept the phrase financial freedom but as we talk to people about a very few people actually understand what it means that the simple answer to that is when your cash flow from your expense from your assets exceed your expenses. That's the simple answer but as you dive into it a little bit deeper you know in order for you to truly be financially free. There's one thing you have to own and it's your time. It's your most valuable and precious resource so when we go back to that simple answer of cash flow exceeding expenses that cash flow that you have coming in from your assets from from what you've put put aside has to be passive. It has to be income. That's coming in independent of you trading more of time to get it and you know as you mentioned we're on we're we're sitting in a hotel room about to go to our fifth funnel hacking live. We talked to a lot of entrepreneurs a lot of business owners a lot of W. Two employees and they make good money and some of them to a certain extent have saved money but they don't own their time so that that at the core is what we do. We help empower people in the conversation of money so they can own their time. Anything you want ads in bread. There's a thousand ways we can make money right but the conversations just are we making money. It's are we keeping it and is it positioning us to do. I am of a life of purpose. Wake up every day and do what we want to do. And what we're here meant to do to bring a Puerto Rico so quickly but that phrase you said Brad exactly why I moved to this island because I know that I've been making a lot of money for a lot of years but after California taxes federal taxes. I was like am I really keeping all this money and the answer was not really the move to Puerto Rico. The four percent tax. Everything has made the ability to do that. And that's why fire nation you've got to have your finger on the pulse talking to people who are smart in financial advising like these two cats right here because they are living there eating it. They are breathing. It's and let's just break down. Why why do most people struggle not just with money but with achieving financial freedom? A great question and loaded there. There's lots of ways we could go with this one of you just mentioned you said You. GotTa get advice from Smart People in John. I'd go a level deeper than that. One of the biggest problems with financial advice today is we're taking advice from people who themselves are still broke right or who themselves really don't have they might have textbook answers right. They might have answers that that sound intelligent by. It's really really hard to follow somebody or duplicate results when you're listening to somebody who hasn't done what you want to accomplish right and so a lot of it is is. We're just looking to the wrong places. Were we think that degrees we think that letters and acronyms after our names or big You Know Company pedigrees are the thing that are going to get US financially free. But it's like I I would hesitate to take marriage advice for somebody. Who's maybe on their fifth marriage or I'd hesitate to take parenting advice from somebody who doesn't have kids yet you. It's really really difficult if not impossible to live what you don't lead. And that's an epidemic in the financial industry today And then and then second to that would be because we're listening wrong people. We we believe in ninety seven percent of financial advice becomes dangerous misleading or outright. Wrong when we're not focused on answering the right question which really centered around our first response to to what is financial freedom so fire nation. Have you ever been in that gym class or you know? Gone into some kind of doctor session. And you're getting this advice. Health advices nutrition advice from just this overweight or even obese person like for me. I'm just like my friends. You're giving me advice that you can't even take yourself like there's no credibility there's no validity in that so you've gotta find people who have been there who have done that who have results who have testimonials who have proven concepts period end of story ends. You guys are known for Bowl statements. And I'm personally a big fan of bold statements. Bullishly break this down. Ninety seven percents of traditional finest dangerous misleading in outright. Wrong breakdown force. I love that and and that's kind of a controversial statement for shore and I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA take this back You know I think everyone can learn just about everything. They need to know about life from watching the Sitcom Seinfeld. You remember that one back in the day so funny I miss it so funny but In seinfeld there's this. There's this clip that George Costanza short bald. You know living in his parent's basement and nothing in his life seems to be working out and he's in the coffee shop with Jerry and his lamenting over the fact that he can't get a dates you know he can't hold down a job. Nothing's working and Jerry points out a really interesting thing you know. He says George. If everything you're doing in in your life right now isn't getting what you want. Then the opposite would have to be true. And George Ponder that for a minute he says you know what that's right. The opposite has to be true and so he stands right up. He walks over to To the bar there. And there's this beautiful blonde woman and says hey my name George Costanza short on fat on balls and I'm unemployed and I live with my parents and the blonde woman immediately. Response saying hi. I'm Victoria. I bald men. And so that's a reality man John if if people really take a step back and they look at the financial world everyone knows it. No one will acknowledge it but there is a major problem. There is a major problem with people not saving enough money going into massive amounts of debt putting their money in retirement plans that they don't control and then if you fast forward and you look at all these baby boomers like these baby boomers. Do not have enough money to retire and the relying on the government. They're hoping taxes stay whether at their you know. There's just a lot of problems. And if we keep looking at what everyone else is doing traditionally which is blindly putting money in a 401k with their fingers crossed hoping that it works out the reality of that is that problems just going to compound and so our goal isn't to help you do. What's not working better because again when you look to the Financial World. Everything is a plus one strategy. Well if you're getting five percent over there what are you.
Erik Jones wins crash-fest at Daytona to open NASCAR season
"There has been one race though already under the NASCAR banner during Daytona speed weeks one by Eric. Jones joins US right now here at the table they five hundred meteoric welcome welcome aboard. Yeah thanks for me. I guess that was really something last weekend. Have you have you quite still getting your head wrapped around everything that happened and how it ended up when it was all over and done I? I don't know that we've ever seen somebody crashed three times and and have a blown pit. Stop in seventy-five absence still recover from it. No I I don't think we have. I definitely never been a part of that but it was cool. I mean looking back on it. You know what a Neat Story. I mean to tell a wild race. Not One that I thought you know halfway through we were going to have shot down lap and getting back and lead lap and I think our first restart back on the lead. Lap was green white. Checker me run about twelve th and then we're able to come back and win it wild race but definitely cool. I mean anytime you can win races to Daytonas neat and especially the week before the five hundred smooth good momentum forward spinning out what what comes next. What's the approach for Thursday and the and the dual hopefully Thursdays step in the other direction? Lot Calmer I'd love to win it but maybe in a different fashion so you know it's definitely a different race a lot more reserved race. I'm sure with some of the guys who are in the clash and just in general people want to keep their five hundred cars in the race. Sunday. You WANNA run hard. You want to get the best starting spot you can you all start fronting the Daytona five hundred and you don't want to give up those states points either that there are available in the race so a fine balance right you wanna push and you WANNA learn run hard but you gotTa keep your car in one piece too. So it's going to be an interesting balance but I think we can you know hopefully run up front and stop the tweeted a meme on Sunday night from days of thunder? Remember me feel like the forgotten one? I mean what was the kind of the story behind that means we. My Buddy was laughing. He's sent that to me when that was. When Cole trickle wrecked about times I thinking that race and came back and was was waving to the Rowdy Burns whose leading so we're just laughing about it. Nothing more than that. We just thought it was funny from the movie so a year ago went to victory lane as part of a nineteen win season for Joe Gibbs racing it. I don't think anybody would have bet that one organization could have won nineteen times in a single year. Probably nobody would bet on on the ability to do it again this year but I don't know that anybody would bet against it either because this race team has not sat back on. Its laurels during the off season. You've been working hard to get better still. I think that's the big thing with Jj sometimes when you get out front you worry about being complacent and and I don't think Jr's really fell into that trap. Before they're they're never once it really sit on their hands and say. Oh you know we've got good cars. Why do we need to keep working on them? The develops constant different. This year. With the PARTRY's we've got going on but you can still work on some stuff on the on the other side from. Aero and everything else so there's still development going on maybe not the same as we've always had but you know I think we've got great cars. I mean a parts freeze but for a good year for US coming off a last year so same cars and you know hopefully just as much success. Well we won't know until obviously season gets going here but I think we all feel good about having an opportunity to have really similar season. Wish you the best of luck on Thursday. Congratulations again on on your success. In the busch clash and have a great ride on Sunday. Appreciate it Eric. Jones dwelt Toyota out of the Joe Gibbs racing
"gibbs" Discussed on NASCAR Live
"This is next car lot now. Back to Mike Bagley. Thanks for joining us on this weeks. NASCAR live recently. Mr Cain had a chance to sit down with Nascar Hall of Famer. Joe Gibbs. It's this week's Nascar. Live face to face interview. Please welcome the Nascar Hall of fame. inductee Joe Gibbs. This is something you've been through before on the football side. How is the NASCAR side side of this whole hall of fame experienced different? I think they are both different But at the same time it's a thrill and I'm just is thrilled to be a part of it. You realize that the two things I've been in are really team sports. This football and his racing and I was not a good athlete so I found out early on life. Get in team sports. Hide in there and when the team gets victory you you can take some some amount of credit for doing it and I've done the same thing. NASCAR got great. We've got great people race team and it is a thrill getting the chance to go at this and I realized for me most people in life never get to have wondering occupational and I've had a chance to have to so I realized how fortunate I am and I really thank the Lord for Let me do this one of the things that you often say is. This is a people apple business about getting the right people in the right spots. When you're needing a person what are you looking for? I think you know it started in football because you you know you have. I used to go into the draft and all the players are being fined up there and with the with the redskins. We had little orange sticker and I would look sometimes see it. Orange sticker would be on the draft side and an orange sticker for us. There's something in the background here. Really wasn't good and so I would always go now. What's this and they go? You can handle him he he.
"Just to be clear there are lots of different kinds of skin cancer knowing them as just one of many chewed chewed happens to be the kind of cancer that comes from land sites which are the cells in our skin that make pigment and it's the third most common type of skin cancer right right behind squamous cell and Basal the Cell Carcinoma. And I would say it's also the scariest meaning people rarely die from squamous or Basal cell cancers but definitely can with melanomas right but let's not feed people out the five year survival for all. MELANOMAS is greater than ninety percent so that's good true. The thing to know is that survival rates are dependent on the size of the melanoma. Ah really the depth of the melanoma so if the melanoma just involves the top layer of skin. That's good treatment is almost always curious. Yeah but if the melanoma extends down into deeper layers of the skin or even metastases to different parts of the body then the five year. Survival rates dropped precipitously so for stage four disease which is the worst. The five year survival rate is pretty crappy. I think around twenty five percent. Yes so for obvious reasons. There has been a big emphasis on prevention and early detection. The idea being if you can find these things before they grew too big or too deep in prognosis will be better right so the first thing with respect to prevention is who is at risk because the risk of developing a melanoma is not the same for everyone. Yeah so people who are fair complected have blonde hair especially red hair and blue or green. Eyes are at an increased risk from Elena's. Yeah I think it's like twenty times more common in white people than black people. Yeah all white people I guess. Yeah Yeah and also if you spend a lot of time in the sun or -taining booth that's not good. Yeah we're talking to you. Donald trump does he couldn't attaining booth. I thought that was just a Tan from the spray on. It might be anyway if if you've got sunburn when you were a kid or teenager that's also not good. You know every time I right now. I'm just like checking every box I just cringe. I mean growing growing up. We spent so much time at the local pool. My mom would just drop us off at ten. For Time. Warner cod same. The lifeguard lifeguard was our babysitter but anyway that wasn't good. It was fun but not good. Yeah also win. The lifeguard wasn't there we douse ourselves with ketchup. And then fall at the diving boards like we'd been shot. I still feel really guilty about that. But it was also not good in a little disturbing. No good for the soul. But we digress. There are also some heritable disorders orders and genetic mutations that ran families that's put some people at risk and Radiation therapy in childhood also. So that's not good and people who just have a lot moles that increases the risk of developing melanoma. Okay so that brings up a question. If you're somebody that has a lot of moles. How can we tell them? Melanoma from Benign Neva or a normal old mole. What is melanoma look like? Well there are some characteristics that can help us tell good from bad but before we get into those we should probably say see. That doctors aren't really very good at predicting good from bad. I mean we're better than a crap. Shoot you mean better than fifty fifty right but even dermatologists the folks that look at these things all the time. I'm only get it right about seventy percent of the time so means that means if you're a good dermatologists you're still be removing normals. Pretty often right so anyway. There are a couple of tricks they teach you in Moscow to help you get it right one being the ABCD rule. Okay let's see if we can remember that far back as stands for a symmetry if the mole is asymmetric metric. That's not a good time right and be is borders. The borders are irregular. Also not good for color so lots of different colors red white blue also black and gray not good a mole should be just one homogeneous color right not a variety just read is okay just blues okay but not various colors then. D is diameter if the mole is six millimetres wide greater gus worrisome and finally which stands for evolve if you've had them all for years and then suddenly it starts to changing color shape size. Whatever north boy no moles should not evolve? Yeah they should remain uninvolved evolved. Yes also let's not forget. The Ugly Duckling will or one of these things is not like the other rule exactly so if someone has a lot of moles and they all look alike except for one. Maybe that one isn't just a mole and the ones that do look like just them all could also pretend that the potential is there that they could be something. It's very rare but you know we're not saying we're not diagnosing every normal here if it doesn't meet these criteria are not hard and fast. Yes that's true okay. So now everybody out there. Listening has stripped down birthday suit in his examining themselves with magnifying glass. Thanks for the mental energy me my pleasure but the thing is dermatologists are really working to improve public awareness of skin cancers I including melanomas true for good reason over the past twenty to thirty years a number of cases of melanoma has just skyrocketed in fact the number of invasive melanoma Mama cases has doubled from nineteen eighty to two thousand eleven which is scary because these are later stage melanomas the ones with a bad prognosis. Yeah but here's the deal. Most people think this is due to increased diagnosis from screening not a true increase in the number of cases. Well then we have a problem. I mean if the number of cases week diagnosed has doubled old because we're doing a better job screaming than we should see a corresponding decrease in mortality. Exactly but that's not what's happening. Mortality has decreased only a very little bit certainly not close. Goes to what you would expect with such a huge jump in diagnoses. And here's the other thing. The United States Preventative Services Task Force the USPS T.F. The the folks at review the body of research on a topic to see what the scientists telling us. These folks don't recommend screening. Let me repeat that they don't recommend screening. There's just not enough evidence evidence to say it really works so we're diagnosing more and more melanomas but it's not really affecting mortality. People are dying almost as much as before right and this is something. We're starting to see fairly early regularly and medicine. These days across many specialties We want to believe it. Screening the general population for cancers works. But this may not always be the case. Yes yes so the risks of not screening. We get you'll miss a cancer if it's early enough to do something about it but the risks of screening or not as well known or appreciated right and we've talked about this on previous podcast screen and can lead to false positives unnecessary procedures increased cost to patients inside in general anxiety pain suffering. All those things get so maybe we need to not necessarily screen more people but screen the right people right screen people who have a higher risk of the disease than the general population. Okay but it's not all doom and gloom in fact there's some really good news out there about MELANOMAS. There is for one. The number of melanomas diagnosed in young people is going down. We're seeing it less and less and young folks not exactly sure why this is happening. Maybe it's due to increased emphasis on prevention. I mean I was out there with baby oil on my kids. Were not out there with baby. Yeah so there's there's a big difference right there yeah. Meeting more people stayed out of the sun or covered up. More people wearing sunscreen. That kind of thing. Yeah I slathered sunscreen on my kids way more than my parents ever did for me. I was religious about a real then still there were a few cents sunburns in their same. Because we're so pale but well. I'm wondering if you've been getting questions from friends and family lately about the safety of Sunscreen because of that study the FDA publish this yeah right so this is a study that showed chemicals in sunscreens are absorbed systemically Klay levels at the FDA would normally require choir phase one through three testing before approving exactly. So here's the thing we have no idea what these chemicals are up to. And our body wants to gibbs or maybe they're up to nothing they're totally harmless more. Maybe not we just don't know but we do know that using sunscreen prevents skin cancer sir. That's not in doubt so we need more studies. That what I hear you saying. We need more studies to figure out what's going on. But until then dermatologists are recommending. Continued it to use sunscreen because the benefits are so great. Yeah and the risks are basically unknown. If you're really freaked out about it you can use zinc oxide based or titanium oxide Bay sunscreens trains. Those aren't absorbed. They just sit on the top of the skin right there barriers. But don't stop protecting yourself from the Sun. We knew the benefits to some protection. So keep up the good work mom and
The NASCAR Hall of Fame ready to induct Joe Gibbs and more

"I mean. She reads all the time I had met asking about your sister. What's the most books you've ever read an ear? I don't know were you were you. Were you ever a big reader yet. Oh when I was a kid. Oh my God yeah I would imagine since you're a writer in a longtime columnist that you probably were a big time reader. We lived four blocks from the Brooklyn Public Library very and I read every baseball Viagra for every single one. I remember reading all the football books and all the football biographies fees. When I remember the last fellow used to put a Mary member Scholastic Book Club? Yeah I used to order so many sports books from the Scholastic Book Club because you could get away with it because your parents would say well. He wants to book like he wants to go down by heroin on the street the corner. He wants a book right. How many of your friends were buying heroin on the street corner in nineteen forty eight in between stickball games shocked all right You WanNa talk about manning real quickly now. mullets do it anyway. All right He's a hall of Famer is he. Okay two things. Is he going to be in the hall and the Hall of fame. Yes yes should he be in the hall fas- why he's he's Harris the list of Super Bowl. MVP's who have one more than Eli Manning half. Tom Brady And who's the other one. There's two of them Ben Rothlisberger. No this was. The question is what how many players have one more than two super bowl. MVP's Montana and Brady that's it okay. Ally has to Super Bowl. MVP He seventh. All Time and touchdown passes as he's retired He is a hall of Famer he he will be in hall of fame and he should be in the hall of fame look in recent years Jerome. Bettis Terrell Davis You know there's multiple examples of guys that to me weren't like obvious his hall of fame guys and they ended up in the hall of fame. First of all he will be in the hall of fame played. New York won two super bowls won two superbowl. MVP seventh all time in NFL. History in passing yards you know and a lot of other things he's an yorker he's a manning he's got to super bowl. MVP's Played Big Time Clutch. Football football on the way to those super bowls as well. You know the defensive teams in both two thousand seven and two thousand eleven but he was really good in the postseason in many of those games. He's going to be in the hall of fame. Should he be in the hall of fame. I mean I think it's I think it's a reasonable debate there. Are you know a guy quarterbacks. For whatever reason I don't subscribe described this necessarily but they get really they get evaluated on wins and losses. He's a five hundred career quarterback in the only two postseasons things that he ever did anything. We're those two postseasons. Those are big postseasons. Yes you know. There's a really important postseason time. The show up. Yeah I it's a hell of a time to show up up I've all I remember. Certainly taking all of the numbers out of it. I remember years you know talking about one or two and I'm not talking about the two super full years either talking about several seasons where in watching Eli Manning play I would say to myself. He's a top five top six top seven quarterback in the game like he's a top ten quarterback in the NFL. You know there were years at the end of last decade the beginning of this decade where he played at a very high level. Yeah you know and and I would think he's a really good quarterback really good quarterback but You know ultimately you know you have a guy that basically had two postseasons that were memorable and the rest of his career is not even really close to hall of fame worthy. I know you know but I think it's debatable. I'm fine with him going in. I'm not against him going in but he will go in. Yes like to me. It's it's it's a debate but but you know people that say well the two super bowl years were just We're just about the giant defense. That's not true. He had big time drives against the cowboys against the packers and against the Patriots in the Super Bowl in the two thousand seven season including the game winner to burress burst the year that they beat the packers at Lambeau again and then one in overtime against the giants at candlestick To Win that NFC championship game and again another late. Come from behind game against New England in that Super Bowl that they won twenty one to seventeen. They're down seventeen fifteen going into the fourth fourth quarter and they need a drive so he was he came up with clutch moments. In the postseason. I agree there's no doubt about that. it was not all about you know their pass rush which was awesome. They had a great pass rush with Pierre Paul and with Tuck in in all Strahan you know but but but but he li- really played well in the postseason when they were in it and those two super bowl years the other years. Okay you know the only. He only went to the playoffs in his long career sixteen. Eighteen year career. You only went to the playoffs. Six total times in the other four visits. Were one in donors you know in and out No wins. It's all of his postseason. Wins came in the two super bowl runs but those were really good runs. Yeah so why doesn't Plunkett get credit for that his career. The numbers aren't nearly as strong to decent super bowl runs. I know that put his butt. Allies career numbers are. They are in a in a different era. Yeah I me but there are among the best. I mean. They're right there right behind. Philip rivers in terms of touchdowns and yards. So I mean Jim Plunkett career numbers since denied. Tonight add up. Jim Plunkett The year that the raiders wanted in nineteen eighty one as a wildcard team by the way through seven touchdowns and two interceptions in the postseason when they beat the eagles that year. I think that game was in the superdome in New Orleans to win that Super Bowl it was and then the year that they beat the Redskins in Super Bowl eighteen His numbers weren't nearly as good and they blew out all three opponents the the year that they won it in nineteen eighty one They played multiple close playoff games where he played pretty well. But you know when you start comparing like yards. Cards and completion percentages. It was just a completely different day back then as he was he had some big time. Plays in some of those go. Yeah but you remember the Super Bowl win over the redskins for the raiders. Defense their corners in particular hands and Hayes and for Marcus Allen. Yes and that's really what you remember that Super Bowl for and the redskins getting eating absolutely pounded as a as a favorite that year with one of the great offense is the N._F._l.. Seen yet at that time all right what else. That's it that's it for me to Have a great day back tomorrow..
"gibbs" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Let me tell you something I listened to that I know you did okay. You did hero always very much in tuned to our sponsors on the show So Berries for Luger with this column about how the whole Gibbs Rivera thing came together and and I'll net it out. I'm going to read some of the quotes in the story but the NETA netting of it out is that first of all Gibson. Rivera did not know each other prior to November December timeframe frame. This year they'd never had a conversation Snyder reached out to Rivera. I and Rivera called Gibbs and gibbs invited him over and they had a a long conversation and gibbs basically did the nostalgic thing in her talking about how great the Red Sox how great it can be the Lombardi trophies the fans and how into into it they are He also talked about what it was like to work for. Dan and I'll start there He said To Rivera would I tried to tell them is what it was like with Dan for me. Quote Dan for me when it was free agency. It's twelve O one. Am when the period it legally opens Dan's right by my side on the phone. Dan is very successful with agents. They want to talk to him. They know he'll make a deal. He's not afraid to spend money and so so I kind of tried to just give Rivera the real understanding of what it's like to work with Dan And he had said earlier in the column. He said we had four years together. It developed a real relationship because we went through a lot of highs and lows together all all the things that can go on for coach and owner. We develop that friendship so when we talk it's mostly a common sense conversation. He would kind of relate to me what some of the some of the people that he was really interested in and that led to Rivera and then Rivera's the one that reached out to Gibbs But he said look when we talk. It's his friends. I'm not paid consultant. I do think it's fair and applicable to this conversation just to remind everybody. The Dan Snyder Snyder is a regular contributor to Joe Gibbs his big time charity youth for tomorrow and has been for a long time right And so I also. I think it's fair to say that Joe Gibbs is experienced with Dan. Snyder was far different than any other coaches experience. Those things are correct and so if Rivera gist reached out to find out about what it was like to work for the Redskins and for Dan. Snyder from Joe Gibbs. I think that was a mistake. I think you should have talked to a lot of other people I would and I'm not suggesting that he didn't I do know that he did not reach out to Mike Shanahan. They did not have a conversation prior to taking the job with Mike. I don't know who has his agent is but it literally would be malpractice not to have given your client the Oh you should do this. You should talk to these people. Oh now incan choose not to do it but there's no excuse for going into this job without your eyes open. There's more within enough information out there about what it's really like and it's not all it's not all made up stuff it's re- it's the same. It's the same stuff saved for Gibbs safer this little oasis of Non Turmoil it's all pretty much the same name so there's no I mean there's no excuse for for Rivera to have taken this job and be surprised at anything he'll have to deal with down the line. I would assume that one of the conversations he had with norv Turner at some point. Don't you think yeah. But North Turner's experience with the owner was not a good one but it could also be chalked up to a new owner. Ernie was thirty four years old right but but I mean the the next step in that would be. He's matured since then Dan but he hasn't right. He hasn't gotten better. He may be different but but the issues are still the same. Like north turned north. Experience was right. There's a small window and you know he was. That was his first time as the owner. Look I don't know what North told Ron Rivera Hill I obviously nor told his son that you know North told his son that runs their. Ron will protect you. And if you a head coach rush this is the quickest way to do it on offensive coordinator job. And if you're good at if if if if the team is good for a couple of years in three years you'll be a head coach right so that that's the path that do it. So there's another there's just another part of the public gibbs also said that he had never he didn't have any conversations about Bruce Allin with Dan Snyder he said all the conversations have been about coaching essentially That was just an added thing So so one of the things that I think it's just interesting to sort of just think about is if as a fan which I am and you're not lake like what do I think about Joe Gibbs having so much influence at this point he seventy nine years old. He's been out of football since two thousand seven so twelve years. You know out of it. he you know waxed nostalgic in very wistful in in in his conversation with Ron Rivera about all of the glory days which are now so long ago that you know it's not unusual anymore to have conversations with people who say really. They were good like a lot of people. I mean a lot of younger people and I And that his experience was probably far different than every other coaches experienced. That was here. You know how to how redskin fans how should they feel about that. My personal view is Joe's a winner in Joe's biggest strength over the course forcible long period of time professionally in two different sports where he is a hall of Famer in both of them and he's always said this picking people. He's always been really league good at identifying the kind of people that can contribute to a winning organization in so that from that standpoint whether he's clueless s two how it is now which might be a little bit as to how people really feel about the team now and how bad. It's really gotten in what Dan really is and has been with other people. I bet you. He's not completely naive to what it's been like with other coaches can't they can't be But with all that said it doesn't mean that Joe Gibbs going going to pick a bad person that he's going to. He's going to suggest a person that isn't going to be. You know a guy that can win somewhere somewhere anyway. Hopefully here I mean I still want Joe Gibbs. If he's willing to give advice to the owner the owner didn't have anybody else so one thing we've learned about Snyder when it comes to who football advisors. They're not a lot of people. Apparently he's very close with no and if Gibbs's there that's not a bad outlet. It's not a bad sounding board if I'm a Redskins Fan. I'm happy about Joe Gibbs being a Dan Snyder confidante at this point it's better than the alternatives completely. I agree so I mean if those has been Bruce L. right however flawed Joe's thinking may be sometimes in his perception of what the team is like. Now I'd want Joe Gibbs to be part of that you know by all it's by all rights show. KIP should own the team. I mean you know. Him and Sam Grossman were two of them fitters back in that thing and he got. It's funny he got beat out by Snyder and now he's he's he's WanNa Snyder's confidence. What do you think that relationship relationship reviews? Snyder gibs I think it. I think it's good. I think I think I I. I think it's as good as it can get for Dance Snyder. I think the I mean look again if Dan Snyder didn't own the redskins no matter how Richie is. Most people would wouldn't care less about him and you know I mean I just think it's it's been beneficial for Joe Gibbs to have Dan Snyder under As a friend what do you think he really and truly believes about what kind of owner Dan Snyder is 'cause you can be friends in think. Think Kylie of him as a person what do you think he really thinks of him as an owner. I mean Joe knows a winner from a loser. Yeah that's a tough one. That's it's hard. It's hard for me to think that you'll never get it at a gym ever. It's not what he does now. It's hard it's hard for any. It's hard for me to think anybody radius smart as I think. Joe Gibbs is to think that Dan Snyder is a good owner under any circumstances now he talked about free agency now. That was the first time Joe Joe Experience Real Free Agency so he was like a kid in the candy you know. He got sold a bill of goods by Vinnie and Dan. About how much looking at much fund this get Outta March Aleta. Yeah you know he was thinking about the days of Plan B free agents and all that and so I think initially it was influenced by the fact that Wow I go out and get whatever player I want you know. Yeah Yeah I mean you know one of the reasons I mean. It was health related in nineteen ninety three in January and March of ninety three when he left football but it was also a Changing Day to in football was in its infancy and the redskins had an older team and what they weren't going to have a hell of a lot of salary cap space south in the new salary cap era so he got out just in time. Although you know Joe would've figured it out I mean well. The thing is if JOE would've stayed maybe Reggie he white would have signed here with Washington. Maybe God would have told Reggie to sign and what you know and that could have been a game changer right there because it was it was the redskins packers it was and he came very close to playing Washington but he wound up picking Green Bay. It's ironic for Reggie White. God bless his soul. He went on to work with Joe Snyder. Joe Joe Gibbs on his racing team to Reggie created his own little racing tied with Joe Gibbs racing for minority drivers really. I've I met Reggie White. I went down to go Joe Gibbs racing once and did a story about Reggie white trying to create this minority driving program through Joe Gibbs. I spent spent the day with Reggie white and what a fantastic charismatic human being was absolutely great to be around. Think about that in ninety three three it was either the redskins or the packers packers were the bad franchisees redskins were the big brand of great franchise and Washington to Washington was still chocolate. City and Young Bay was was was Green Bay but Reggie happy night on the town. He had to go to Appleton. Yeah so is it cell phone even know if it's south of Green Bay. I Agree Prophet. You probably sold grocery store now. I've been to Green Bay before the Green. It was super value. I think it was They were a big grocery wholesaler but I remember I. That was the only time I've ever been to Green Bay. Packers game at Lambeau but Green Bay.

"Where the care about football? I pretty much and he was offered that job in Morgan. Didn't take it Morgan. Always said the the only job that he really would never have turned down. Was the Maryland job. That was his dream job and he never got he never got offered now he then that was the closest came because it never came. Close when lefty you know was ushered out In the wake of the Len bias death because chancellor slaughter at the time decided. Why did you know to make a unilateral higher? He went to Baltimore and higher. ipod lab wade from Dunbar and And a lot of people at that moment wanted Morgan takeover then. Yeah I don't know what how what kind of college coach he would have been. I'm sure he would have been a really good college coffee. I GonNa Madison Winter in college too. I I think I think he would have been but I he has such a unique legacy at at at at Damalf a high school near it. It's so there's I don't. There's a coach in the country. That really has that kind of a legacy staying at home at the local high school for all those years. Well I think there are a lot of those high school lifers but not what he not with hit now with his profile right now with his national profile. That's right yeah. I think that's the big difference difference right. Is that probably every city. Well how many calories like that are in the basketball hall of fame. There's just three high school basketball hall of fame. Yeah but The the You know every town every city has probably a life for high school coach. That is a legend in that area but nobody with the national profile profile of that we had a football coach in my town that coach there for fifty years and he impacted a lot. He impacted me and I didn't even play football So but but he's not known outside of that region you know nobody. Nobody's ever heard of him outside that region. So I mean Morgan is. It's like I said I. You know you talk about the people who came to speak at his camp national Suao. NBA Champions. Yeah I mean you know th there was there. There's a great football coach for for many years in this town and it was Bob Malloy Bob. Molloy's one of the winningest football coaches in the history of high school football. You know Malloy a lawyer who last coached at good counsel but He's a well known national coaches. Well it's it's speaks to Just how many great coaches in in how Great High School Sports are in this area and really that league in particular as we talked about before So one other quick thing before from that I would have talked about yesterday that Aaron. I probably just want to talk about briefly. You'll find interesting because I'll be judge mark. turgeon did something the other night in. Maryland's Comeback Win at northwestern that I have not seen him do I Aaron I don't even know if this got a lot of discussion. Yesterday I talked about it on radio. So they're getting their ass kicked in the first half and we would have been an ugly loss in the Maryland. Fan Base. Of course you know on twitter gist all over him. I I mean relentless like this is it. He's done. You know you lose that North Western Wall couple of things real quickly northwestern's better than I thought I watched. That's the first time I've seen him play. They got a kid Spencer Aaron who was a four a four year Lacrosse player loyal. Yeah he almost thought about going to Maryland. They didn't take that I wish they had can play. Yeah and in watching North Western you could you could see that. They've got some players and they nearly beat Illinois. They nearly beat Indiana. They had a chance against it's Michigan. State they've been really close and they're up fourteen against Maryland at halftime and it was ugly and turgeon did something in the second half that I have not seen him do. He's he's very much. Tommy a micro managing kind of coach. You know he likes every half court possession to have a you know a an organized set set a play called you know some sort of offense being run even so even though sometimes I'm not in a big fan of some of what they try to do especially against zone In the second half. I'm sitting there watching and I'm like wow he's basically running what we call In sort of travel. AAU basketball five out offense in it's the easiest you know you have a couple of rules. All five players are basically outside of the three point line. You get no low post threat. Nobody's in the middle of the floor and you may and you'll let your playmakers play. You'll let them make place you get Anthony Cowan going downhill. You know occasionally. There's a couple of screen enroll enroll or pick and pop with sticks Smith and Anthony Cowan especially late net gain. There was and it worked because right now Jalen Smith is probably their best three point. Shooter shooter Wiggins got it on the other night but he did something. That was to me very uncharacteristic of Mark Turgeon who really likes to be in control even even though I would personally disagree sometimes with some of the stuff they do run. He wants to run stuff. He wants to micro manage manage every offensive possession. Now they've won more this year you know. And they've scored more in transition especially earlier in the second half five out make place. Anthony Anthony Aaron make place take shots. Don't worry about it. Let's play loose. Let's see what happens. And what happened was their most productive half half of the season. He scored fifty one points. They shot it confidently. There was no hesitation. They weren't running plays where they were passing on shots. Because because the thought is the offense what they're running is going to get a better shot. You don't make the defense work a little bit harder. They've got talent any let the talent spread spread it out and just go Anthony Cowan forget his stats. He was to pretend he may play after play. After play. Aaron wiggins made plays I Alam made plays he played aide. Basically six guys in the second half that was it a Dekalb even come out in the second half and even if he came out I don't think so if it was it was just very briefly. There were some criticism. The man who played him too much. I don't buy into that though I didn't I don't know if if I was looking for his press conference on Youtube yesterday there wasn't isn't one so they didn't. They must not have taped it. 'cause I wanted to hear if he talked about that but it was a real change in his philosophy eighty. So should this be a philosophy moving forward. Well I think you do. I think the players at times look like they're trying to run and stuff the way he wants it run their well scouted. It's a it's a league scouts. Well it ends up more times than not in an uncomfortable situation. Look he runs a lot of good stuff to he does and anybody that thinks otherwise you guys are wrong but I I just thought you know I you know Tommy I see see that at the youth level allot because you don't have a lot of practice time in so there's certain things you can run without a lot of practice. You know five out couple of roles you have in terms of the spacing and in terms of movement and then you know if you really need something you get a high ball screen with the floor spread out. And that's basically what they did and these guys were making plays and they were making place and they look very comfortable and they were shooting in rhythm and the ball was moving. I mean you want to move the ball ball. Wants to move or should good move but yeah I think I I would think if he did that intentionally that the results would make him think you know what I need my guys to play confidently. And they looked confident. Boeing that way okay. Let me ask you this. This is the way these kids were raised a lot of them. A lot lower as the play was really coached. Well the Saint. John's coach at the time for Party now was an excellent coach. Most part this is how they were raised. What's going the best? Serve you in the second half of the tournament against Michigan State team. Well you gotTa do both of those things but you need to do. What's what suits your talent? The best. That's what you need to do. There are teams. I'm sure we're I mean I've seen some of his teams. That haven't been extraordinarily talented. That I need you know a slower pace more structure the whole thing. What I watched in the first half the other night was an attempt to run certain certain their zone offense was terrible when northwestern was in zone and then the man stuff it just seemed like he was scouted well it was resulting in four shots? Hesitant didn't hesitant shots and I wouldn't have thought to do what he did. In the second half and never would've thought he would done it. You know but they also got a little bit of a break because northwestern didn't play much zone in the second half they weren't sagging is much especially when wiggins and they started to knock down some shots so they're out in it. Allow the Florida sort of open up a little bit I. I don't know what the right answer is. I think the right answers the inner still with them more times than not is play really good defense and and see if you can turn your good defense in the easy offense but it's hard to do that in the big ten the big ten very few teams let you just fast break yeah It's a tough league. I think it's a tougher league. AC Say oh much tougher bottom right now and it was last year to I think it's going to be one of those years and I know people are GonNa think that I am way too optimistic. That when these teams get out of the big ten and get into the tournament went at least the first game or two. It's GonNa seem easy. It's GonNa seem much easier. They're really being prepared. I think for March I could be wrong. They could get ten teams in the end just to go to the sweet sixteen or three go to the sweet sixteen but I think that the grind it you know tough physical very good defensive league very well scouted league in well coached league. I think that Maryland and some of these teams are going to have it a little bit easier in March at least for the first two rounds you know unless they just get you know terrible matchup or have a terrible night. Which of course is always a possibility in the tournament but I was really impressed with what he did in the second half and in the end beating northwestern it's not like you know? Oh my God. What a big win on the road but it was a win on the road and it would have been a terrible loss? It's what what if what the alternative would've would've been far more disastrous than the benefit of winning. I think that's true I'm excited losing would have been far more more that than than the profit of winning. I'm excited about the game. Sunday Erin at Indiana. It's the one place. Maryland has not won yet in the big ten is a big ten member they one they're in an ACC big ten game several years ago when they were ACC member they went to Bloomington and one At Assembly Hall they have not won. There is a big ten team team. Indiana plays Michigan state tonight. So that's a huge game for Indiana and from Michigan State Michigan State and first place only lost once And end so maybe Maryland will catch them. Come off that with shorter. Rest in but it would be Huge for Maryland to go in there win on Sunday and then is the game after that I awoke at home yet..

"Podcast but we really did talk a lot about Morgan. Wooten Tommy on the Tuesday show And we went through our experiences with Morgan and a lot about Morgan's life when it was announced that he was being taken home to be cared for by hospice and he passed away as most of you know by now on Tuesday night So we won't do that today. If you missed sort of our discussion and we had a lengthy conversation about Morgan you can just go back to Tuesday show. Obviously our prayers are with all of the family. Leeann our sympathies go out to the family. I had Pete Strickland on the show on the radio show yesterday. Pete was a Player for Morgan Coach for Morgan Longtime College coach coach multiple places and Pete's always been a really good storyteller in a really good memory bank for everything else absolutely. was there for so much of it and I think he he said it or a caller said it that that mortgage Jackie Bruin her up in heaven starting a basketball camp right now and and he had incredible life. You know an incredible life. I looked for yesterday when I got home. I looked for because I have some of those lunch with the legend Broadcasts that we did. I couldn't find the Morgan one. I might be somewhere in my house looking for because I wanted to listen to it because it was really good. Ah Yes I did find the Sunny Jergen one so I'm going to be able to make a copy of that and to give to you because you want to have that so I did find that one and I found a couple of the others. There's but I couldn't find the one for Morgan. I'll keep looking though but Anyway what a life. I want an impact on just so many people and as we talked about the other day it it wasn't just the the players the coaches it was His students and a lot of people like me who went to his camps In Morgan wootten A had really You know a basketball camp summer camp. That became so important to so many people in this area that loved basketball and played basketball. And I can't tell you the stories that we talked about the stories. I talked about on radio yesterday about that camp. How many hundreds of tweets I got in text messages suggests from people. I know you know sharing the same stories of having participated in Morgan wootten Summer Basketball Camps Morgan wootten Joe gala or the great coach from Saint. John's as as well. You know that you you forget. But you know in your formative years when you're young you know you have these experiences whether it's coaches or teachers or you know Oh that someday you you you just remember so many things about that experience in all of us. That went to that camp and I'm sure his players have countless more obviously stories but it was influential made an impact. You just don't see you don't see anywhere. Anybody have An impact as far as he did as far as wide as he did by staying home. You know it's it's like basically the the local hardware store that the whole country knows about that never became home depot. They never branched out. They never they never. He never went at the coach at a big time college program. He was a high school coach in the same place his entire career and had such an impact that it it was nationwide but he never left. I mean that's so rare. Yeah I Somebody asked me the other day to tell all the story that I've told before The story about being at that camp and being coached by Derrick Wittenberg. Do you remember me telling you the story. Yes it went I. It's it's been a while since I told it right. Yes they all want. Okay so I'll tell it real quickly So at one of those summer camps get I mean I don't know I'm twelve years old old. Maybe something like that. Derrick Wittenberg a senior going into his senior year DAMALF. He's one of the best high school players in America ended up going to. NC State was on their national championship ship team But the story is this. Tommy that camp you get placed on a team in one of the the people who coach you are the players at Saint John's into math there the counselors and Derrick Wittenberg was my coach and we went they set up the camp where you have a first half and second it can happen and the two half champions would play each other on the final day camp for the championship. The first half was the first week the second week was the second week of camp. We went oh win ten in the first half the season and then midway through camp a guy shows up from New Jersey. His name was Brent. I cannot remember his last name for the life of me but Brent was really good. And so they put Brent on our team inten and in the second half we went nine. One because Brent was awesome Brent was like I forget how old I was probably twelve or thirteen and Brent's already like six four and he's dominant and so on the last day of Camp Tommy. We had to play a playoff game with the other team that went nine and one in the second half to advance is to the championship game. Later on that day in the playoff game was held right at the beginning of camp in the whole gym was watching. Everybody in camp was watching in and Brent from New Jersey we had the ball mid court two seconds to go down. By a point I throw it into him he heaves up a half court shot and it banks in at the Buzzer and we win the game. Look at me. While I'm telling you this story I I need I need I need some facial here. Yeah like you're you're ignoring me. I'm doing some research so respond well but wall. I'm talking and look at me. God okay. Dear uh-huh okay dear. I've had to deal with over the years sometimes. I'm telling a story and I look over at Tom and he's got his glasses off and he's got his phone right up to his is like he's not paying attention at all but I'm sorry honey. Okay okay so anyway so anyway we win the second half. We lost later that day in the championship game. That was the story from nineteen eighty or whatever year was nineteen seventy nine so fast forward thirty years later this ten years ago. Something like that. I met Maza Gallery on Christmas Eve. And I'm walking around on and out of one of the stores Walks Derrick Wittenberg and I noticed him and I said Derrick Wittenberg and he said yeah and I went up to him and I said my name's Kevin Sheehan said you'll never remember. You coached me. You know he probably gets that from from you know how many different people and and I said it was such a great experience. I'll never forget it. We had this guy on the team and he came in halfway through camp. And we're playing for you know to get into the championship. And he just stops me mid-sentence and he goes Brad. Brad and I said I think it was Brent. I think his name is Brent. He said when he hit the half court shot also and I said Yes thinking to myself. Oh my God that's Derrick Wittenberg. Who won a national championship at NC state right and it goes to show you that even that camp impacted him? It also really goes to show you that you never forget a half court. It's a win a championship and he didn't win the championship. I said No. We actually just got us into the championship and we lost later that day. Anyway we ended up. We sat there and we talked for fifteen minutes. Would like you. Just those are the stories that you know came out of that particular camp that one though was for me like that was crazy that he that somebody buddy like him would remember that okay. I'm glad I'm glad I stopped looking at my phone. And looked up at Gotcha. So that wasn't a good story. No it's a good story. It's an excellent. It's better story Arrowhead. I told you that story before. I had not heard that story because you think it was a good story. It was it was a decent the story. What's he looking at you? What you were saying it was he was Aaron looking at has some of the same qualities you have? He's in his phone own the entire time during the show. I've let me ask you a question because research asked me a question on this. Better be good with all the research doing during my story. What if Morgan wootten had coached University of Maryland? How different with things have been? I don't know left. He told me the story once that when he was being interviewed by keebler Jim ki-ho yes yeah Who was the athlete? The idea at the time basically He said He is this is what set. This is what lefty said for quote. Keogh said. We want you. You're the guy we want. But I've gotTA know tonight left. He said coach. I just got not that at a final four when he was at David Elite Eight He said final four. He said He said you do what you want to do. But you're going to make a decision tonight. He said you enjoy go downstairs. The bed is all made up for. Ut left he stayed at his house that night and spend the night but when you wake up in the morning you've got to give me your answer or we'll hire Morgan wootten. uh-huh Morgan told us that story. I mean out different. What has three of been I mean Ev? Everything in basketball in this town would have been differently. It would have been different L.. Lefty Morgan wootten. Not at the math of for all for were talking in thirty five forty years. I think Morgan told us the story in that. Once you were the legend that either he was coming back from that Alhambra Tournament and Cumberland or on his way or whatever but he was under the impression that he was going to get the job. Yeah you know. And then in. He was told that they were going to hire lefty. 'cause left he decided to take. Yeah because it was a little bit more money than he was making and remember they sold Oldham. Ki-ho sold them on. It's GonNa be you Ted Williams in Vince. Lombardi is the three new coaches in town and he was right he was a sales else patches that all three of those coaches came in nineteen. sixty-nine yeah The other interesting Morgan wootten thing is he was offered the NC state job before. Jim Valvano yes he was yes and he and they wanted him norm. Sloan had retired norm. Sloan won a national championship at. NC State didn't retire. He actually took the job at Florida and I remember member at the time norm. Sloan said the pressure of the ACC too much. I'm going to go coach at Florida..

The head is the biggest part of his body but he's clearly lost a lot of weight. You know I mean I I'd the seventy degree thing. I kind of appreciate and agree with 'cause I sleep in the nude so no you don't when you mean though I I know you don't yes I do. I don't know but I there's no chance that you sleep in as God as my witness. I U. T. shirt. Last night I slept in the dude really. Of course I do. Well that's because you're by yourself It's right Liz's Outta town all right. So let's real quickly so and the sugar is easy for me because you don't eat sugar. Yeah because I as as I cut out soda here ago. Yeah I don't drink so I I don't drink coffee. I don't drink soda. I don't eat sweets so the sugar things easy for me. I think I need to cut back on definitely. I should be cutting back on coffee. I think I have on average three cups of coffee a day but I think there's some kind of a Scotty. Coffee can be good for. Yeah it can now you know I am not a black coffee guide. That's really healthy for are you. I always go a little bit of milk usually like skim milk and maybe a half of one sugar. I'll put in there but I do drink a lot of coffee. offi that's A. N.. T. I drink a lot of t to next podcast. I want you to come up with your seven steps for better living and I'll come up with my when I can tell you what number one would be right now. Don't gamble. That would be my number one gambling. Gambling is fun my number see you know what seriously for this Guy Bookie Ted. Yes that's right across the I mean all of these things. Things are great. Ted I should reply and don't gamble. That would be the best thing. Because he doesn't understand how lethal it is is and how dangerous it is. And it's it's well whatever Zion Williamson last night. I turned the TV off at the end of the third quarter Mike. This this wasn't worth watching. He had five points. He didn't look like he was really ready and I was sort of expected. I wasn't expecting much more than I missed. This seventeen points points in a row in the fourth quarter with that building and you know New Orleans is not a basketball town now. I've told you before how invisible the Pelicans lately but that place this was packed in it was wild. Have you watched the highlights him knocking down each shot. I have first of all. They didn't guard him the four three pointers on three of them. No one's within six six feet of him in on the last one lamarcus Aldridge is sort of running at him but not really defending it So when he scored his seventeenth point which who is a free. Throw to cut the lead to one San Antonio went down on the other end scored New Orleans called a time out with five minutes. Twenty three seconds left in the game. He scored seventeen consecutive points for his team. He came out of the game and he never went back into the game. Load management baby load management. It's it's minutes restriction. Right right now on him. I mean that had to be frustrating. If you were a Pelicans Fan for your in the game it's That you cut a big lead down to three. Because of him and you're you're probably sitting there going. Oh well he's GonNa come back and getting a quick rest never came back into the game yet. PELICAN's fans they need to count every minute they can of Zion Williamson because as soon as he can be out the door. He's out the door. Well it's going to. It's going to be few years so they're gonNA value every minute they get them so you know last year at this time. He was really the reason that college basketball had a bit of a renaissance. A sort of came back a little bit in terms of being popular once again in the regular season. Tommy Tommy last year remember college. Basketball's been a march sport for a long time. Now and last year people were paying attention to Duke in Zion Williams. Oh yeah and from the start People outside of college basketball no doubt and he was clearly the most he was the most visible and the most anticipated draft pick it you know in his NBA debut since Lebron. It's not an exaggeration to say that and so it took a while because he got injured in the preseason. But there's been a lot of debate about him as to whether or not he's going to be great. I loved John Moran in A. We had the conversation on the PODCASTS last year. And I said I I think I would take John Moran if I had the number one pick and he's playing very well but but I'm watching him last night. In man there is something about him he is. He's two hundred and eighty pounds but he's so quick he's got a second jump that is as immediate immediate and as explosive as you'll ever see he does look in play a little bit like Barclay you know when you're thinking about somebody who's six six in the and that big and strong but he's really super athlete. I'm actually really interested to see what kind of player he turns into. He's got to stay healthy and you know he. He didn't Lash Duke for the entire season and he's already been injured as a rookie but he's going to be an exciting player to watch in in a lot of these younger players. You know because it's not gonNA be Lebron here for that much longer even though he's is really good But anyway that's enough on Zayn Williams unless you got something you didn't watch it. I didn't watch it either. I turn it off to watch highlights right I I'll watch highlights. He's so anything else in that. I got nothing else on sign will okay. I hope I would like to see I. I love New Orleans so I would like to see the Pelicans. PELICANS become relevant. I'd like to see I would have loved to have seen Anthony Davis. Stay there and been a teammate of Zion Williamson such a great city. It really is such a great city all right quick word about mybookie DOT AG. Then we'll get to a few more topics to today including some redskins news that at the time he hasn't had a chance to weigh in on. Nor have I from yesterday when we miss the PODCAST mybookie dot. Ag Great Place to Bet. If you're looking for a place to bet be careful full if you're going to wager on sports and you're going to jump into that world. You gotta be careful Moderation Tommy..

"PM No social media past apm read fifty books per year. No empty thought calories. What do you think bill was going through? Did he have an empty thought last muscle. Here's my question to you. Do you one thing for. Ted Isn't watching the wizards part of your game plan for life. Yes wouldn't you put. They're on there somewhere watching the wizards. I guess. Maybe you know what that qualifies as Empty Calorie thoughts. That's what that cow hall so my question to you is. Why do you continue to watch? I watch every game like I used to not this year this year. It's really not worth it. I mean I mean it's getting in the way of you reading the fifty books books. I know that I would you know what I would ask him. You know not everybody. A lot of people have to work a lot of people have long days. Do you want him to watch your hockey and basketball team or read a book instead. That's a good point. I would argue fit it all in and I would ask them this. I would hope on his list of fifty books would be a hail victory. The oral history of the Washington redskins available on Amazon for a nickel south. You can get it for a nickel. I would hope that would be on on his list. At least at the very least it is good advice. All of these things are several of these things. I've actually been trying to do the steps per day. The the hydrating per day the sleep and sleeps really impossible. Anybody that's gotta get up early for work and I'm one of those people have to get up very early for work. It's hard especially if you're a sports fan and you went to watch the teams that Ted owns. Yes it's hard to get seven hours is that I don't understand this at per i. I don't.

"Know you just you walk in around which is probably looks pretty weird but you'd strike up conversations with people walk into. I don't like to talk. I like talking of anybody when I'm doing business. I'm not there too so I stopped doing that. I mean I just think it's absurd. The water just comes naturally to me. I've always drank. I look this is ridiculous. I mean Ted Ted. I mean I imagine telling everybody I know the way to live. I'm going to tell you the way the wind does that a lot. o- wrote a book the business of happiness. Not only did he write a book. He lectured on what it took to be happy. He's he's actually come out with a new version of it. I know you told me. Yeah that's crazy. I wonder if this is in the book now. His his game plan for life. I wonder well. He wasn't on the bench last night because it was a road game but I wonder if he was as upset watching the game as I was last night. Can we start with the wizards. It's been a long time ago since we started with the wizards and there is a lot of time. There isn't much of a reason these days to really even talk about the wizards but I'm watching the game last night. Tommy and and we will We do have to talk about Zion Williamson and what he did. I hope you've at least watch the highlights. Yeah that's all I saw because I turn well it got to eight PM. And and or I needed to seven hour to turn the TV. But you know how you know that over the years I've said about beal and wall. There's this like sort of immature casual way that they handled themselves sometimes on the floor during games that drives me nuts guy. You know. It's one of the reasons I think that that they've always been high turnover guy and you know what I figured out why they do that. Why they don't hydrate enough? They may not hydro may not sleep. I don't know if they get I'd say they're not cutting off social media L.. I don't think they're following. Ted's game plan for life. That's part of the problem last night. I'm watching this game and I have. I have not watched a Lotta Wizards Games this year. I tune in every once in a while and especially in the in the end. When they're they're close in beal's really a great score he's turned into a high level? NBA Score. I don't know where he is is very he's very. He's very valuable commodity that they should trade as soon as they can't and I I'm not against that Bill Right now is six in the League in scoring averaging twenty seven and a half points per game which which you know he he he can score you know when he first came into the League people would say well he's just a jump shooter and then you've gotta create ways to get them open? He's he's got a screen forum to get them open and I was like no he. He doesn't have the best handling got a bit of a loose hand. You can see. He's got a bit of a step back. Games got a mid range game and he can get to the rim. He's gotten so much better at all those things he's really you know. He's he's a high level. I don't want to say elite. You Know Kahar. He's not hardened he's not Lillard could have had her heart and He ever that he's not Dutch. This point But he's really up if they're lame put players but go ahead. Do you remember last week. His diatribe against against his teammates. How funny was that was that he was the old man on the porch? No screaming at the cloud. That was so hilarious to be fair. Nobody screamed At him when he was a young player most of that was directed towards John Wall. I know but but just the idea of somebody that age would be would be Moaning the young players. What is he twenty six twenty seven? He's not twenty-seven yet is Aaron. He's twenty probably twenty five okay. I'm GonNa Guess that he's twenty five. Yeah I mean I I got a real kick at him complaining about six twenty six the younger players and their and their practice habits and they're playing I literally was he he was. He was a boomer boomer. Well somebody tweeted that to him last night. I hope he didn't respond if it was after eight PM. Yes yeah so that. That's not the way live. I'm watching this game last night. And they're beating Miami again. You know the heat or the second best team in the in eastern string kinda put but they didn't win. They didn't win they they beat him a couple of weeks ago. Bloom out a couple of weeks ago. I home They've actually been remember early in the season. I said you know. They're actually better than they think they are. They are they are better than they think they are. They're not they're not a terrible team in an in a nights they've been really close there one in five now engaged. They'RE GONNA wind up with twenty six wins this year. One in five in in games this year in five points or losses five points or less anyway At the end of the game at the end of regulation it's tied up and he grabs is a rebound. He's got the ball seven and a half seconds to go and here he comes up the court like there's twenty four on the shot clock casual. I'm like Oh God here comes something that's not going to be good because wall and beal both this is not been there time crunch time overnighters. They do not close. Well they haven't for the moment moments but for the most part. If you've been a big wizards fan like I've been for the last several years where you've actually had a couple of seasons to be excited about out. This is a a pain in the ass portion of the game. Because you know what's coming something that doesn't end in shot may game one but this who is last night really galling like I'm watching him and he's like either completely oblivious to how much time's left or he's just doing like it is there's a certain oblivion he. He's oblivious walls oblivious in these spots a lot of time to clock two defenders. There's two situation. It's almost like they're trying to be to school too cool for school. Who said that about them? Somebody said that about them. I don't know what you remember. Somebody said about wall. Aw ORB about building that. They're too cool for school now. I it's not that memorable comment that I would remember who said it or was that Gruden. WHO said that about two Sean Jackson? I can't remember now anyway. Somebody had that That man boomer calm but but wouldn't the coach have prepared him for that moment. I mean Scott Brooks Brooks is in that moment. No He's not hummy he doesn't get the shot off before the buzzer goes off. He never got a shot off off and he had seven seconds. Hit plenty of time plenty of time to get to get to a spot. They had plenty of time to run something real quickly but I could see it get in the way he was handling the ball coming up. I'm like this is going to be a bad shot. And then he didn't even get it off. He got it off after the horn. I mean I'm sorry but that is immaturity. That's it's a casual approach. It's it's lackadaisical it's oblivious. It's bad you know that's on the player. I'm sorry that's on the player player. Approach does not need to tell you he had a timeout left the coach and next time he's going to probably take time out to say. Hey guys just so you know Lot We're seven seconds and we'd like to shoot the ball before the end of the game and I and then at the end of the game in overtime Miami went up one thirty four to one twenty nine with ten seconds to go in the game. It's a five point lead. You know there's still a chance down five with ten seconds to ago. I mean you don't have a great chance but it's a two possession game yes you get it down there with emergency get up a shot and if you know after trying I steal who knows. Yeah so the ball gets brought up the court pass to be on the wing. And he's dribbling the ball round looking for to make a pass and makes the past `Davis batons who catches it and fires up the shot with about three seconds to go it hits the rim. You know by the time it comes off the rim. It's miss the game's over. I'm I'm just I'm watching this. I'm like are you trying to lose. Maybe that's the goal last night like we played real competitively but you know beal had the the thing last week where he went off a little bit wants to be on a good team wants them to compete better all of that. He doesn't get a shot up at the end of regulation and then in overtime. Just SORTA dribbles the clock out to a certain degree without trying to win down five. I I think this is the kind of organization led by Business Nisa happiness himself. They really tend to Build up some of the people that they have into things that they're not really. I mean I had no idea. And to that extent. They're very hesitant to sort of make them accountable or be critical or who are really coach. Him Scott Brooks players coach Scott Brooks a lot and I think he. He's not he's not but I but I I guarantee you one of the reasons they didn't want randy around around is 'cause randy yes what a let him have it happen there. They'd keep talking about changing the culture. Okay this is not at the coach you want to change the culture. He can score though man. Bill can really score. He is a tough tough check. I mean I. I cannot deny that if you've watched him this is a year in which he is really taken and of course he's also the number one option clearly As he was last year without Wallin was implying. But there's something about his game. He's he's physically more mature now He's more aggressive. He gets to the RIM. He's got he closes near the rim. He's got a lot to his offensive game. He really does. I just can't believe in some of those Oh situations how clueless he appears to be. Here's what I can't believe. Can you find Ted's Plant Game Plan for life again and read them. You mean the tweet that he put out yet You could find that for me again. I I'd appreciate hold on. I'll have it here for a second now the I mean I'm kind of curious. Here about hydrate.

Well then you can't then you're pretty much Out of the in game tweeting as well. He should be addity in gained tweeting business. Look the ten thousand steps thing I used to do it but then I realized this is absurd. I mean I'd be you got to ten thousand steps per day. I used to do it regularly. But I'd sit there at seven o'clock at night and say Oh my God I'm three thousand steps short. What do I do and I go out and walk? That's ridiculous absurd. That's that's obsessive. Well there is just an arbitrary number. Well it's not an arbitrary number. Somebody has decided that somewhere in the neighborhood of ten thousand thousand gives you some level of cardio that you know you needed a Minnesota seven thousand so does thirteen thousand. Well it gives you more than zero bureau. Yes it's it's. I mean. I just stopped doing that. I said I'm not walking around the mall at eight thirty at night. Well you don't have to walk around your mall take a more putts. You Know Old Putz community. You live in your around really cold. But you don't have a dog you know you just you walk in around which is probably looks pretty weird but you'd strike up conversations with people walk into. I don't like to talk. I like talking of.

It's a game show answer in the form of question staged the greatest of all time tournament and I think this is a case where the contestants really do live up up to that title. Brad Rutter the all time winningest contestant in jeopardy history Ken Jennings who blazed a trail of glory when they changed the rules to allow people to win for as long as they win and James Holes. How're all face off in an interestingly formatted and much harder version one of your favorite answer and question show joining me? Now are returning champions or a returning champion. Justin Peters who writes for slate he was well. I'll read you the headline of one of my favorite articles. He's ever written. I got a second chance on who wants to be a millionaire. Last year I became one of the biggest losers in gameshow history going back with terrifying. Justin knows gameshows. Hello Justin. It's me and Lizzie leary. Who is the host of of slates? podcast what next. TB An old friend of mine and a jeopardy contestant. Hello Lizzy Hello Mike. I'm jeopardy contestant into jeopardy real jeopardy honest to God civilian jeopardy tell me about your jeopardy nece I was on Washington power player jeopardy in two thousand twelve thing. I don't know if it's still living but it was a thing. It's like celebrity jeopardy but for politics and media people a- Ah so if Washington is like Hollywood for ugly people what's power play jeopardy jeopardy refer. I know you were on it. You're better looking than almost everyone else else. On jeopardy isn't on television aired on television. Yeah Yeah in twenty you play your opponents. I played against Chris. Matthews and Robert Gibbs now Chris Matthews doesn't like anyone else to get a word in edgewise. Did that affect gameplay. I mean I think it affected the banter with Alex and getting and Gibbs. He's a former White House. Press Secretary Presser because he's pretty smart smart smart guy. And how did your go. I want to be clear that going into final jeopardy. I was winning by a lot too. So I'm they're on the the measurements that matter. Yeah I was. I may not have the best bedding strategy. Fine did you get final jeopardy right we we all got it wrong. Oh Oh I had like a slightly more aggressive than Robert who liked bet very little dinky amount that might have been the best bedding strategy because you had to cover all in right and you just have to Eke past you. So in that case actually the person in second place will almost always have the advantage. I had to cover like what if he goes all in and gets to this point. Okay and just for like one real. I don't know horrible footnote. The answer her the question the question was who is Bill Cosby we all whiffed. Oh Wow yeah. What was the question? The you mean the answer. I don't know what this celebrity won an emmy. The Mark Twain Prize and the Spin Garn metal right updated today serving garden given by the end. Tapie we all look like a bunch of really clueless white people which we were well and if you updated for today and is now serving ten to thirty in Philadelphia Correctional Institution almost unfair. And just do you watch jeopardy all the time Yeah as much as I can that I'm a man who has not but yeah a little bit. Yeah you guys excited for this show so exciting. What about it is just such a good idea? I mean jeopardy occupies Very unique place in sort of Pantheon of game shows and it's champions more so than any other game show are sort of known. People know them James Wholesaler throughout the first pitch at Wrigley Field. Glass Year So it is just a cool idea to take the three quantifiably most most successful players in the show's history. Pit Him against each other. Yeah and also they do tournaments of champions at tournaments of all time champions and you could say it's like the rock band who keeps claiming claiming that there never touring again and then does but with Alex tra- back having pancreatic cancer. This is going to come to an end and sadly it's going to come to an end fairly early soon so when they say this is the greatest of all time champion. This is the greatest of all time. It is like they were all wearing purple. Ribbons is that for him. Yeah let's talk a little bit about Alex Trebek's I understand that he. I have critiqued him over the years. I think that especially in the QA in a sections. I mean let's unite. QNA's I mean he's a game show. Host is not an interviewer and he it comes across the he doesn't care with his to go to sentiments. which are good for you and I'm not going? There says that one a lot so yeah I understand like what he does is a skill skill and he's obviously good at it but the fact that he is battled cancer and came back from it. And there's this this whole outpouring of Love I. I think it's deserved. I can't I can't find fault in that jeopardy fans are loving and miss already missing al now not at all. I think it's okay. I'm good with
Redskins introduce Ron Rivera as head coach
"The redskins officially named Ron Rivera their new head coach yesterday. Washington Fire Jay Gruden on route. Two a three and thirteen season the Redskins have not won a playoff game since two thousand five. That was when Joe Gibbs was their head coach Washington looking for some of the stability ability that Rivera brought to Carolina. The Panthers never won a title. They did reach the playoffs. Four Times under coach Rivera including a super bowl trip in two thousand fifteen. The redskins last made the Super Bowl in nineteen ninety-one and in a matter of moments the redskins will introduce Ron Rivera as the new head coach. You can see see. They are getting ready now in the nation's capital and as we wait for coach Rivera. I'll ask you this. What do you want to hear this afternoon? I think from Ron Rivera. I I just want to hear why he was attracted active to this job. Several Head coaching vacancies out there. And and why he took this job and and presumably so quickly when there could be potential other openings out there even in Dallas as we wait for that one and then secondly I wanna hear his evaluation or just thoughts overall Dwayne Haskins in what he might be thinking with regards to the offensive coordinator position. Since we're thinking that he's going to interview the current Guy There Kevin O'CONNELL and and You know what he might be looking being out of the coach from nap position. If he doesn't go with the guy who's currently their jobs I think the the the maturation process of dwayne Hassans is important for this football team. And I think that's the number one issue for Ron Rivera. Moving forward is how do I get my quarterback if he feels doing Haskins is indeed his quarterback How do I get my Guy Ready? Ready available with the right mindset because we do understand doing hasn't silly young player. So how do I get them in the right mindset to be successful in this football league and I'm a little sour about this. I'm a huge huge Ron. Rivera Fan. I sat with them while I was out. During my tenure with the giants was over and I was going to different Teams and sitting down with their coaches. He was the one that struck me. The most is just is a straight shooter. Honest about what. He does with his with his teammates. Everybody loves them. Teammates loving other coaches love. Him and I think he's walking to the podium right now. We'll take Noon I happy Thanksgiving everybody. Today's the beginning of a great new year for the Redskins Organization and its fans I I'd like to thank Bill Callahan. Those here five years did a great job for us a great guy and we really appreciate him with the Redskins have needed is a cultural change. Someone that can bring a winning cultural to organization at starts and ends with our head coach when looking for that man. I looked for a class. Act That's how you describe coach Rivera. He was two time coach of the year. And for those of you. That don't understand. That's very very hard to do. You should google that Because it's impressive oppressive He was fifteen to one which is extremely hard to do Did my research spend a lot of time talking a lot. Allow People A lot of coaches and one thing that came across certain words and these words. We're integrity honesty. Knowledge Grit determination. It's all about winning. Ron Rivera knows how to win as a player player as a coach as a new head coach of the Redskins. One thing. That's very very important. We're GONNA have one voice and only one voice alone and that's the coaches like to welcome. Ron's wife Stephanie. We've gotten over the last few weeks and our new head coach of the Washington redskins coach Ron Rivera. Thank you you know with about thirty days ago that your team. This team got me unemployed. So just so you know. We're good now thank thank you. It's an honor serve as a coach in the NFL. It really truly is their only thirty. Two of us at anyone given time and these jobs are scarce this one the Washington the redskins. This one is special. This is one of the almost original teams started in nineteen thirty two. There's a Lotta history behind football team in order for us to get back to where we WANNA be. We've got a study that history embrace it history and prepared a repeat that history because if not we're doomed to repeat the most recent history. We're not gonNA do that guys. We really aren't everything we do is going to be about winning. Okay we'll do things the right way and that's the only way we're going to do them because if it doesn't help us we're not doing it man that's just as simple as it gets. So why did I choose the REDSKINS. Probably the question. I know a lot of you guys are wondering that right now with everything. That's out there. I can tell you right now. All this talk about the money I want the money I'd still be out there trying to pick a couple teams against each other. I took this job for one. Simple reason one simple reason because because Dan Snyder came to me with a very interesting perspective for weeks he's explored the reasons why some teams win and some teams. Don't he told me. The common. In fact that transitional success of teams like the Patriots the Seahawks and the chiefs. Some of the other ones was that decision to take it and make a coach centered approach each not an owner centered approach or a team president or GM. Coach centered approach. I told Mr Snider that I appreciate the fact that he believes the head coach matters but I would be honored but under one condition it had to be a player centered culture a player center culture. Something I truly do believe in my responsibility to get the most out of the players to work with them teach them mentor them. Five five to one by one. I most certainly. We'll do it. I've done in the past and I'll do it again. I'll do what I can't help. These young men become not just the players we want but the men in the community we need. These are the guys that can help change things not just on the football field but in this world I really do believe that I was fortunate enough to have that in Carolina and I hope I'm a work to have it here. In Washington. Things will begin with one. Simple principle off discipline. I come from a military family. We're disciplined it isn't taught it's live. It's expected from day they won. I have a philosophy every player every coach everyone who works for this organization. They'll know what day one you're not gonNA play for this team. You're not gonNA work visist team if you don't have the discipline to give us everything. You have no exceptions no excuses. That simple guys. We have to hold each other accountable. That's something that we most certainly will do. We'll expect most from each other whether I was in Chicago Carolina with our very best when the players knew. Do the coaches had their backs. And this is the thing I'm going to ask from the players. Do it the way we teach you do it the way we ask you do it that way. The success will be yours. Okay you do it that way accessible be yours if you don't excess is going to be yours but it's not gonNA be right. Why because if you fail it's on you do it our way do it the right way and if we fail it's on me okay? It'll be on me. The head coach at simple. I truly believe that I ask of. You doesn't work I'm to blame. I told Mr Snider. I wanted to assemble coaching staff. That was truly dedicated. The players and teachers and teachers. Okay I don't have to have a great big names would have to have is great teachers. We want to teach these guys how to play football to the best of their abilities to the best of our abilities and also it'd be good quality young men off the field. I want players tough. Hungry will do whatever it takes to play redskin football fall in January and hopefully into February. I told him I wanted to work. Hand in hand with the head of player personnel could spot potential and others that even. I didn't see another didn't see. That's going to be important because it has to be a collaboration no matter who it is no matter. WHO's working with us? It has

"All right. That's cool. You know what I mean. Let me sold this. Do It really input some real pain instead. Ali's like goofy cartoon metaphors and stuff like that he's cool. You know what I mean. I'm my man. I'm not like talk about some real stories stories from real crime stories from room street stories and Drugs Tales. Some shoot outs like get you all of that and nobody ever get you. Don't know Manu Maladies. I know how much you love scarface. I do too the rapper scarface and one of the things that I love about scarface as is a wrapper is he's music. Never feels like it could come from anyone else's always very deeply personal and and when he raps about street stuff which he still does now as a you know. I guess faces probably in his mid late forties now yeah you have about that something like that when he rapped about street stuff even when he was younger much younger you never felt far from the pain and regret that that stuff engenders even in a person who succeeds or makes it out out or any of those like you never lose sight of the sad part of being involved in St Staff Right. Which is you know? Even if you're the world's greatest drug dealer right and you didn't get caught you didn't go to jail and you got rich. You still at some point hand drugs to somebody's mom or dad or kind of often. You know that you never could shake you know dealing with that. Lifestyle is no happy in it a lifestyle so you know the best thing you know you can do. Is You know if you gotta deal with that. Being life is to you you know make you enough where you like star something else start another business. They may not make it a L- make as much money as that initially or not but Sousse something when you will you know become an for new you know what I mean really. That's the main thing you know you gotTa Hustle. Just Hustle yourself business. You know what I mean like trying to be a career drug dealers dealers dangerous and it's dangerous not just to you family you'd be going to be gone is is inevitable. You're going to do eventually you. you still have about. St Staff Grow. Why is that. Why is that important to you? Why is that the choice you made instead of instead of preferring to leave that behind correct I mean really middle not far removed from it. You know I mean a lot of my friends. I still industries the RAP APP game as a forty me to be able to not be in the streets but you know a lot of my close friends are still living those lifestyles and I mean I'm not I'm definitely not on a corner or rattling around selling drugs all day. You know tumbled functioning musician with two kids. I mean I'm on the road or come on daddy duty but once that's a part of you is Never GonNa leave your is going to have those stories is going to be those street undertones and you know I come from a place a place of underdogs so I'm always gonNa be thinking with that underdog mentality. I'm always gonNA feel like I gotta rebuild or I gotTa resist or you know somebody putting something in my way you know. I mean like about trying to run out the room. He put that chair in front of the door. You know what I mean like. I'm a knock the hell audits here with all my might. You know I mean if you tell me the door lock. I'M GONNA kick the door down. I'm a kick a little bit harder. You know what I mean. Because you know at that point you know fighting fighting for my life. You are acquitted a few years ago of sexual assault in Austria and you very much to your credit had it have talked publicly about the fact that you don't want your story to be shown as an example of accusations of rape frequently or regularly being falls which they're not any more than other accusations of major crime. Nobody ever tell somebody that just got robbed that they're lying got robbed but there there was a lot of exculpatory evidence in your case that eventually led to you being ah found not guilty and if I didn't if I personally if I didn't believe that exculpatory evidence you wouldn't be here appreciate it but you know you were well into your career when this happened. It happened thousands of miles from where you live in a country. Where are you don't speak the language you know you are you are arrested in France and eventually extradited to Austria and you spent a lot aww time either living in Europe because you weren't allowed leave Europe or in jail in your right to to what extent did you trust that there was an end to that insight I mean I I presume that you knew yourself to be the innocent but beyond that to what extent did you think this will have an end thought it was going to end with me doing ten years and Austrian prison. The fact that I knew that I was innocent was the hard part because it was like okay. Damn if I'm I don't even notice girl well. I never I never even gave her a high five. You know what I mean like data if she walked in the room. I probably wouldn't even be able to tell you what she looks like right now. I'm like Bro if they can indict me off over here and must muster enough stood ever 'cause 'cause it was zero point zero zero zero zero evidence whatsoever. Lincoln me this so whatever they mustered up to get a grand jury in another country to indict me on something that I definitely didn't do after they've taken my blood my Ma Ma Saliva MODs plasma my seeming all my body fluids to see if it matched the DNA they already have their for the rate and this a zero zero zero zero match and you have no evidence to me even touching his girl if you can do all that. I don't frighten me I'm going to I know I'm going to jail because I'm I'm already in a in an impossible position. I shouldn't even be here. You know so so the whole time my thinking I know it was like somebody added. Alpha media has got to be this is I don. Is some this big it in Austria government. I got it. Is this bigger that Nino Brown like I was like man. There's some some some power that'd be. I don't know man 'cause I'm like this is totally ridiculous if I was any other the person if I wasn't black if I I don't know maybe if I was a I think maybe if I was a more popular rapper. Maybe maybe I wouldn't have been in that position. Maybe if I wasn't in the street rapper I wouldn't have been in that position because one of my first here is in France with the first thing. They said Oh yeah he they gave they gave a whole gang history on me. He's in a gang from Gary Indiana. Yeah gang ties mob ties no. We can't grant him a bill on my how did that come. Come up in a rape case. You know what I'm saying. I just always thinking that I man if I was this person that person I wouldn't be in this position. You know I hate the reiterate I look at the way things will handle it. like ace at rocky like he got a whole presidential recommendation. You you know what I mean so you know for something that you know He. Actually you know Dallas cowboys he did he did get found like I'm not you know there's a lot of people compare my situation. His and I'm like man hold up. I ain't no comparison. You know like you know. Mossy situation was totally. I was you know first of all awfully accused man my country that I pay taxes to didn't I didn't really help me. You know what I mean. I feel like I didn't get really any support from the rap community like that. You know what I mean. It was a couple you know the guys that I you know deal with personally you know they gave me you know the show but for the most part and I and I and I I don't you know it don't matter man. I mean because you know I'm I'm not crying for the you know supported wrap community at all on care less but I'm saying like you know when there's something like that on the line I mean the thing that I thought about was that while you know you went you arrested while on tour in Europe years after the incident had been alleged to have happened and by the time you were arrested and ended up having spent what like six or nine months and in your junior addressing the situation you had a kid and that was back home without you or that was the first thing that I thought of as a as a parent of three like beyond being in jail l. for a significant portion of that time and having to deal with living in a foreign country without any means of income men et Cetera et Cetera et Cetera. It was just like you couldn't be there after kid right and I was I was seeing my world just crumbled man like from my mom that was that was probably the worst thing the biggest thing I have in like fly my daughter and her mother over at France and Austria and my mom that was that was crazy. I'm the fly mom over there and you know just man. You don't know jail until you do jail brought because it's a whole different they man you damn they gotta be rich to do. Jalen Bravo Bra that could collapse my whole career. No thank God it did. Did it change the way you approached your music career in your art when you see when you came came through it I'm not gonNA say change the way I approach. My career definitely changed the way I approach people everyday people. It was definitely a dark dark period after that psychologically you. I didn't know if I even wanted to even be in the music industry to be in a rap game 'cause I'm this is this is this. This is a hazard to this job like if a woman could just say that. Are you know raped her out of the blue. They can get locked up and go through all that. I want to go through that no more man that was mental anguish physical anguish. You know what I mean. I'm like I don't WanNa go through that. No more not only did it like the FEC my you know affect me psychological with you know we want to be in a rap game affected affected you know the way. I treated women. You know I didn't Wanna I kinda. I ain't even WANNA deal with you. Know the.

"In two years after you play here in the in the D. League or whatever and I wonder what it was like for you a guy who had not spent half your life planning this out right to like get the big break and you never you never put data record on that deal yeah it was heartbreaking I definitely say one of the most like darkest points in my life. Do you know track heart and say it was easy to shake off but that was heartbreaking man Mike to get dropping record label. I was I manage. The first I am really about you know I kicked out of school by know. Nothings really like working out for me. In life and I'm like man is the first thing I'm doing that. I'm I'm exceptional it. I'm aligned brome great at wrapping like you know my people. That corrupts good is is is a rat it. Just let me know like no matter how polished I was a askew was happening. I had to learn the business. The music business is about to take me on a ten year journey to get to where I wanted to be. Be in the game. I had to really you know said look myself in the mirror and see if I wanted to go on that journey if I go if I was to get into delorean right now go back to that at that time it'd be like April. It's GonNa take you ten years to get here but look it's August five. You know what I'm saying like. You've gotta go through grind you. Are you willing to sacrifice it. You know what I'm saying. I feel like I wish I could do that for every artist. I man pitcher yourself ten years later a six years later seven years later and and then go back in time. I'm in you'll be. I feel like when we're we're about the same age. I'm lately have been thinking like Oh. I guess I did those things that I set out to do when I entered the real world but the pain that I remember most vividly was is not about how hard I had to work because I loved doing what I was doing was easy work hard when you love what you're doing. I mean it's still hard but the but the thing that I remember being the most painful was feeling like if success was attended and I was at a one. I wished that I could see when I had made it to two three four five six seven eight nine and ten like I wish that I knew when I was working hard. I could see directly the fruit of my labor and like that I I moved up around today right whereas I for most of that time. I really felt. I wasn't sure whether I was throwing my work into a whole right all right. I wonder if that was part of the challenge for you. Is that like so much of that is. You don't know that it's GonNa Work Right Man. I mean you know yeah definitely many start feeling like you're doing his music for nothing when you when you're not getting notoriety or the praised the two you know deserve and you were. I mean like look. I'm a a public radio host. I knew that if I became successful when I was sixty it's love at twenty year career had made it would be it would be better for me to be sixty in twenty eight or however. I was you're you're a rapper and you know it's only recently that rappers over twenty five has been a thing you know what. I mean pretty much. This is crazy you know the game indefinitely and younger and younger but I think that rappers are only not happy nowadays like if they if they don't having money you know what I mean or or. They're not generating money generating funds but as long as you're doing that. I think the popularity thing is a little bit. You know low on alone a scale now because you know I feel like when when I got dropped from offers record you I didn't know that you can make the money in the music music industry without having a record deal. You know I mean so I looked at the guys in south. Look at the guys in the bay. You know their business models into things knows encounter creating my own you know and with the implementation of streaming it definitely changed the game so I got to a point where you know I was making a lot of money and didn't really care care about moving to the next level of notoriety of fame with the music. You know me you can get content so you know when I start working on his last project. I I was like all right. Let me not be content and let me try to like step things up a notch because like I say it on a on a news. GonNa wrap around lyrical level is not many you the people that can compete with what I do so the remainder a products that I'm putting out I think they just desire to best looks best best best window opportunity tune. What do you think you learned about wrapping in that time. I mean you got your big break. When you have been wrapping for a year or something I I I learned about definitely taking your time because I used to write every rap and like three minutes five minutes like I was like runoff race. I think that's what made me so good at it like being in a room with other apposite just trying to compete that competitive spirit. I'm real competitive guys so that really Maimi better at it. Just being around different producers. You know I was you know been fortunate enough to be around guys like just blaze in indeed quick and you know all kind of different guys that I learned different things from different tricks learn how to record how to do this voice how to do that with my voice. Learning breathe learning when the you know Paul's not saying where like being more melodic just being able my own development it is it's it's crazy because I can just go back and listen to where I was with the way ours record in five years ago when I was making even the way I was recording when and I was making Pinatas like night and day compared to the way that record when I make better will finish up my interview with Freddie Gibbs after a quick break we'll talk about why he starts every live show with a prayer backstage it's Bullseye for maximum fund dot Org and NPR this message comes from NPR sponsor squarespace squarespace allows small businesses to design and build their own websites using customizable meisel layouts and features including ECOMMERCE functionality in mobile editing squarespace offers built in search engine optimization to help you develop an online mine present go to squarespace dot com slash NPR for a free trial and when you're ready to launch us the offer code NPR to save ten percent off your first purchase of a website website or domain you know Jonathan Venus as a fabulous cast member of networks is queer eye but as a kid.

We we are going to talk about that in this next block of the show although there are no descriptions of sexual assault. Let's get back to my conversation with Freddie Gibbs. You have a really distinctively flexible style as a rapper. like there's a long tradition of breath. Gangsta rappers with powerful voices and declamatory styles. You know people are making pronouncements and whether that voices deep and rich or whether it's easy in it just cut through everything right and I can see your connection you know I I hear scarface. When you're rapping you know maybe the most beautiful wrap voice that's ever existed and one the greatest rappers ever but I also here especially on these Mad Lib Records Madeline beats going all over everywhere? You know it's it's it's not the most straight ahead beats in the world to wrap over and you maintain that feeling of effortlessness even when you're wrapping double time when you fast rapping and that is like to maintain your personality and your presence while moving moving through styles in that way and keeping your voice metaphorically speaking what it is when you're bending and flexing to these wild madly beats is a really impressive thing to me. Is that a lot of rappers who can be that flexible and remain themselves right yeah like a lot of represented wherever oldest period. I mean like I feel like if you came mo Jo self to those beats and just getting his world and just accepted then you know. I don't think you will come out success. I read a great interview where you said that. When you first started working ad-lib you listen to one of his collaborations with M. F. Doom and you set yourself all right. I'm better than that but I did. It was like I was like I could rap like this. I mean rabbit and it's like I was like this there by tripping over Mavin House advil and I was like okay this cool. I was like that that was the thing I was like man. This is classic right here. Man Is this dude is stuck in London can come back and everybody wanted another album from them and all all it is and you know it was Kinda like I feel like Lambeau like challenging me. I like when people challenged me. I like when people tell me not necessarily saying he said I couldn't do it but it's like when people put a roadblock in front of me so I could be like I let me knocked away Lambeau Ige. I never say we gotta top this but they always put my face like this the classic so you know. I mean and I'm like I don't get about. I'm sorry I'm like I don't care about that. You know what I mean like villain. I'm like.

I wanted to forty eggs in a mule. I thought I was supposed to get Kazan but you know is steps to getting to the things you want in life and you know I was. I was trying to skip a lot of steps. You know what I mean skipping school. You know selling selling crack selling heroin to get a leg up. All of that stuff was could've been a detriment to my life. How did you end up wrapping. Were you writing versus before you way to College Ronnie Allen. That's the reason my friend Rodney out. My Boy Rod. I grew we grew grew up on the east side of the year on Day. You know I was working in this after I got kicked out a college in nineteen twenty hello. I'm working at this. Does Janki Schuster called payless. I'm familiar with the story premier vinyl. He's my uncle work day. You know what I mean. So you know my mom kind of made me work there too because you know she knew. I was out here trying to be Tony Montana China you know because she was about to go somewhere and get a job real quick so I was working. There and MA homeboy was like walking through the village. Can you know laughing at me. Everybody's laughing 'cause working this Janke job. You know when the tide look stupid so he was laughing at me and then he was the a year these CDs in his pocket and I was like what is this picked up. CD and I was like man this crazy dog you got your face on CD bar. Code on all of this you signed to a record was an idea as myself. I was how you dude. He was like man. I managed arrived with me. I'll show you you know how we do it the barber I mean so I was going to his basement getting my haircut so I hear be cutting my hair. I'd be soaking up the game. I just be letting them just talk about it. And then he started talking talking about the studio us to and He introduced them to this guy named Finger otas studio in Gary and once. I started like going there with him. I'll just go. I wouldn't even thinking about wrapping. You know what I mean. I didn't know if I wanted to get into this rap wade executive get away be a DJ Some Naw. Maybe I'll be his manager or something like that but once I got in there man and then like finger studio and I was just you start seeing like the caliber rappers coming in there and I'm saying good and I was like man I could do this. Once I started getting in my ahead that I could do that. Then it was a rap you know what I mean and you know you know. Outside forces the things that I was going through in my life. You know gave me some things rap about. You know what I mean like. I was working odd jobs. I was selling crack. You know what I mean. losing crack you know. I mean getting beat up by drug dealers for on on the money you know beefing with gangs from across the tracks so it was like a head all of that all that pain crumbled up you know. I was defeated needed so I used to you know become undefeated so I just started like everybody does like dissing me like they was making music too so I started like this and I'm back back making disrupts the other wrapping geary and stuff like that and like I was putting my phone number balls. You know what I mean like everything I was doing was ballsy is like mad at that point. I really care if I got killed and I you know the mute musicals kind of like a manifesto and then like you know lambeau founded it be I anti gun because I put my phone number on it and he called me interested history and we even rocket Nelson's. Does you know at the beginning what kind of instrument that you had I mean. Did you ever have a moment where you could look. I'm a professional public radio host right right. I'm supposed to have pipes right. I'm fine I do. I do okay department unqualified for the job but you're putting me to shame here. Do you think so I think so no way yeah. I think you got a heck of an instrument there. I feel like the first time if if I was you you know you sound different inside your head and outside and all that stuff but like the first time I talked to wrapped into a microphone back. I'd be like Oh yeah. I sound pretty good. That's how that's how I feel about it off. Ah Man and it ain't bad I mean first rapid. FRY like something like fifty bar rud freestyle typing. I didn't know what it was. You know what I mean but it was was definitely unstructured but it was good. You know I had patterns in. I'm light years ahead at a rapid. I was at twenty three years old but you know at the time and you know I was light years ahead of the guys around me so I stood out instantly and it was you know I try to a trace back to where the rapping ability came from from me because I really don't know man you know I look at it like Virgin Mary Baby Jeez. I woke up with this stuff one day because I I definitely wasn't the guy at school being on the desk grabbing at school. I never had the dream of being a rapper at all period. I always knew coming up in my life that I was going to be somebody. SOM- something of notoriety but I didn't know what it would be. Hopefully I thought it would be the the athletes that's my dream. I still dream about being athlete every day. I go to the gym and work out like the NFL but I didn't know what you know. We're I would make my life but I knew I would make some kind of light but definitely now wrapping man was like a Gary Indiana section and murder dog it was I was in it to wrap magazine. Yeah I was in this is crazy said it's the first magazine aisles ever in was murdered out and I was in there because my buddy keeping Rhode like he was getting US wanted to you know main produces area at that time and he was getting notoriety because he's working with a lot of guys from Chicago like Drama Award Word Twist the guys like track stir legendary tracks to shout attraction. You know just to see finger roll rub. Elbows guys like that was motivation. 'cause as you know those were the guys you know from the area that you looked up to you wanted to be like you know twisted his crucial conflicts. You know what I mean. When it came to making music you want it to be especially from a local standpoint. You wanted people from Loc- standpoint is talk about you liked talked about them. You know t's have murder dog at you know like at Eh bookstores that would have a lot of magazines like Barnes and noble or whatever you have those Braxton racks magazines. It'd be murdered dog there. You can go and sit there and hope nobody kicked you out while you were reading it and decree thing about murder dog was like not only would it be like coming from San Francisco. I read about all these these rappers from the film why these rappers from HP this is the Oakland thing whatever but you would get. It'd be like Oh these dudes that are happening in Memphis is what's happening in Cincinnati or whatever and it was like have a window into another world right because you know about the dudes from your city mostly but like all this is everywhere like this is every place has its dudes. That's how I learned about the Bay Murder Dog magazine. I'll be like damn in Beta so many rappers like they own world is crazy. I'm like these rich rich. The the bay was the first guys really that I looked at them in like three six mafia. I say Memphis or something like that because I was looking at and sounds like damn. These guys don't have like major record deals but these news is rich. How do I do that. Your first record deal was not that long after starting rapping career and it was with a huge record label right you moved out to Los Angeles to work on the record. That's what brought you out here to southern California straight from high school straight to the lead yeah and that record deal lasted years not really how how how long until we'll tell you gave up eight year about a year. was that say about that about eleven months. I'd say you talked about going straight from high school to the League. You know there's people there's people who at that age you are what like in your very early twenty twenty twenty one hit hit the big time that way and when it doesn't work out when they can't cut it in the NBA. It's tough to readjust and figure out what the Path is. You know what I mean you. You think the oh well. I can just do it but when that doesn't happen. It's hard to figure figure out how you go play in Italy or whatever and and come back.
"gibbs" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"I welcome to Bullseye grateful to have you I just say when you made your first record with Matlab and I was like well. They're both good but that's not the team that I would have. If I was plan plan fantasy wrap basketball I would not have put any money on Madelynn Freddie Gibbs Megan record together me neither were you do you even did you. Were you familiar with his music before before the two of you got together somewhat but not as familiar as I am now but a little bit you know what I mean but I just look at it as a miracle man for some reason but you know to you know make classics. I nothing you know everything. We've done so far classic so it was worth it. How did you how did you. How did the two of you meet the first time you met in real life. All that boy egon put us together pretty much. That's your respective managers yeah. They you know they've been working together and been cool you know for years and it was a mutual thing it was easy. We made it to do over like drink this angry is that sound good. I think right now after having go get sangria drunk. It's extremely hot in Los Bachelor today yeah. What have you talked about when you first sat down together. Do you remember the matter yeah. That's a good question really nothing man. It's about like a music that we like. You know I mean I found out that his musical Palette is a huge most people's what kind of things suppress to heather he was into like the eight hundred eight type of music a lot of the newer music like little babies and the baby and you know the migos. Is You know stuff like that like you know you really into that type of stuff. Yeah I mean I think there is a there was a certain kind of underground hip hop fan who defined their hip hop phantom by what they weren't into and I can't imagine being that kind of guy. That's the beauty of it. I never liked that. I never like because I always been so such a versatile fan or up. You know what I mean. I like all kinds of rap. I mean I feel so much and I like offset. You know what I mean so I mean that weird. Why do you have to be one being or in the one being or confine the one thing I would like hip. Hop was trying to fight against that's what I asked like Pimp C and guys like that. We're trying to fight against. They didn't want it all all the radio and all of that stuff to be all east coast at that time you know. I felt like they fought getting more diverse and it's like now we kind of like. Did I go to one eighty. You grew up in Gary Indiana. Were there emcees in Gary that you knew about when you were a kid in a teenager yeah yeah definitely definitely those guys wrapping definitely before I was happening. Mainly the rap guys you know came out of gear was like gather in the streets because the Torah that time yet academy industries so most of you know rap coming out of Gary area. That sounds like street gangsta rap. You know that's why this week around as environment so was do you mean that you had to be in the streets to wrap up because that was what was expected of those records or simply because there wasn't anybody giving anybody a record deal correct there. Wasn't anybody anyway record deal so I was was like you know the guys that could afford to town on the guys that you know could be in studio. Where like you know canisters? You know what I mean. I it wasn't isn't too many rudy. Puja is like in those studios at that time. It was fun though studios finding a bill in funding equipment you know what I mean so it was like to be you know. Amana respect to be in those environments period. I feel like when the Midwestern people that I know grew up with you. Know certainly everybody go up with in the ninety s anyway away with the hip hop from New York and Los Angeles to a certain extent right but it feels like in other places besides those places it is really treasured that there is hip hop that is not from those places from all over the country like you know in Kansas City. They lovey forty correct. I'm from the Bay area and I love you forty seven. I'm from the also because he's great but because I'm from the bay right but like those guys always got about loving in Kansas City Missouri because that was you know that was from a place outside of New York or La like it was not just New York or La Okay and the same with southern hip hop. I feel like in the Mid West. There was a kinship not because everybody was physically close but just because there was an understanding like we are all not from New York or La Right yeah and and you know what man like you know the West really is. I think the biggest rap consumer region you know what I mean like. I can really see gauge a an artist popularity or reach so to speak beak like when I see if they can like do shows in like Chicago Ohio and Detroit I mean because I feel like those like their consumer the reasons more so than they are reasons that produce homegrown rap or hometown hero is hard to come out eh Gary Chicago in the whole rust belt because it's like when you pop out you know they try to kill you know what I mean so first of all so so and it's difficult a lot of times. They're more into outside music more so than championing their own music Zeke. You know how you know I mean I had like you know. Move to the West Coast to start getting you know musical notoriety if I didn't and you know I'll probably be league in somebody's prison. There were a feud big national acts from Chicago definitely common and twist list do or die but not I'm struggling to think of more besides that pre pre Konya. You know more than two more than ten under fifteen years ago. There was bone thugs who are from Cleveland Right. There were a few here and there but when you started rapping did did you think of being a guy from Gerry wrapping was like a way that you could actually make a lifelong career yeah definitely when I started doing it. I knew that I can do. I can be a career artists in and then I know that I can you know generate a a decent amount of money off of it and you know I just came in with the sense since I listened to so many different kinds of music coming up different kinds of genres. I mean rap AH music period coming up. I feel like my style. You know is is very versatile. I feel like I could wrap on different kinds of beats. You can put me on no no way mafia beaten and I can go in our later and go make a song I don't like to be confined to a region. Nor why do I like to be confined to a certain sound. I mean at the same time I don't WanNa be all over the place. I want you to know when I put my signature on something you know oh but I want to try to beat the most. The most versatile artists interrupt game period. You know I kind of look at it like position. Basketball like how Kevin Durant grant is made basketball positions. You know what I mean. He can shoot put the ball on the floor and you know go to repulse defend in any seven feet tall and it's is like nobody that stay in front of them. Try to treat rap like that like like from Gary but like what does that really mean. You know what I mean. I'm from a small town in the rust belt and I mean so we'll limited opportunity and the greatest artists ever to grace music periods from there as well. You you know he may music like is like regionalists. You know what I mean. It's just like a world things is is you know the with with that kind of you. Know Spirit. I I feel like I just carried that into. My music is will like. I don't even look at it like I'm from nowhere.
