"Anything but legit, don't move forward. The phishing attempts are probably the biggest issue out there, right? Because 90% of the true bad actors out there that are fishing you with fake open sea emails, they're always trying to send you a link, right? They always want you to click on something. So be wary of that to your point, but if an email ever asks you or immediately prompts your meta mask wallet to sign a transaction, please don't do it. Don't do it. That is probably going to be the biggest red black flag that you could possibly find. Never, ever, ever sign a wallet transaction that you do not know where it's coming from. And I think with that on the radar, I mean, the last one's really simple, but I want to expand on the first real quick. You should be setting a timer for yourself. If you are online and you're messing around with crypto assets or you are in your wallet, messing around with NFTs late at night, set a timer for yourself when you need to stop because you've been online for too long. Because things will start to blend together. I have been a victim of that in the past. And I'm trying to make sure that as many people as possible know that that is not what you want to happen to you. Protect yourself. The last piece is one that I'm sure that you've heard of before in this space, and that is never share passwords or your seed phrases. No one will ever ask for them. If they do, they're there to take crypto. It's a pretty straightforward thing at this point, but it's very serious. We have to take it seriously. So let's jump into our next story, and that is an interesting one that we've mentioned a couple of weeks ago. You go labs who, of course, is the founders of the board AB yacht club, you and ABI club, board Abe kennel club, the other side, and probably a bunch of other assets at this point like coda's. Now that I've got that out of my system, they filed lawsuit against someone who is being called a board ape slanderer who goes by the name of Ryder rips, who is the creator of Gordon goner dot com. Now Gordon Garner is one of the actual founders behind board API club. And he write a ribs, did this to point attention to the fact that there's a lot more going on behind the scenes in terms of the traits and what bore API club was founded to be about, then made meet the eye. And there are a lot of different opinions on this and frankly, I think everybody should be reading this in educating themselves and understanding, okay, what is what here, what is real, what is not in determining that for themselves, but there's a lot to be understood about this entire case. I don't necessarily think that it's slander. I think the after reading Gordon goner dot com for myself, I have found that it's more so an educational, deep dive into the Internet and what 4chan trolling really looks like. But to other people, it may seem differently or may come across differently. So I don't want to dig too deep into this here, but it has officially been filed in terms of this lawsuit. And yuga is going after writer rips on this case. So we're going to keep you updated on it. I don't want to do too much deeper into it, but all I ask is that if you at home have not done your research into this and found yourself on one side of the aisle or the other, do the research, start to educate yourself on this type of topic because the IP questions and what really is slander in this space is going to be a topic of conversation for not just months that likely years to come. So it's an important one to be aware of. Now, this, I believe, is either our final story of the day or our second to last story of the day. Actually, it is our last story of the day. This is basically the close of June, right? We're now into July. June was officially the 12 month low for NFT sales. Richard, I know that you and I are relatively deeper connected into the NFT market, but do you think that this whole 12 month low is just a symptom or are we in for more pain and NFTs first? I think we're from an NFT standpoint, I think we're getting towards the bottom, but if you look at where were people putting disposable income, they were basically making money in the regular crypto markets to transforming that money and then putting into NFTs and then flipping that money. So it was like a cascading effect, right? The entry point was, oh, here I have this extra liquidity. I'm going to go put it in this thing called NFTs and have it make money. So the challenge of it now is that because flips aren't as quickly as they used to in the liquidity of people is drying up. They aren't as quick to put them straight into NFTs. So I think that this is healthy for the overall NFT market. So whenever we do reverse courses start going to other direction, it probably will be very bullish. But just because June was the slowest month in the last year, I don't think that it all of a sudden means that NFTs are dead. What's your take on it? I think that right now we're at a point where in NFTs, things operate in a micro cycle as opposed to how it operates with the rest of the market. I think that eth in Bitcoin are still very much so tethered to the traditional markets, especially things like the NASDAQ that are tech driven, and the S&P 500. But when I look at NFTs, these micro cycles are showing that it's somewhat de tethered from the overall markets because you're trading on culture. And across the last month or so, it's been largely free mint. And it's really hard to think that NFT revenues can go very high when everything is being sold for free. Now, when I say that, understand that all of these free mints make their money or at least the projects behind the freemans make their money on royalties. So that's why a lot of the volume in June has been very low. Because royalties are typically like somewhere between 5 to 15% of your overall secondary market transaction. I think that we're starting to see right now based on the quality of projects that are coming to market at the end of June and the early part of July, a theoretical trend reversal, or at least a market that is getting the ammunition to reverse course. The reason I say that is because there's some very hotly anticipated mints that have been coming out to reverse that trend. You have on chain monkeys karma collection. We had on chain monkeys Amanda Terry on the show on Friday of this past week talking a little bit about the karma collection. A ton of really incredible work went into that. And I think that as all of that work went in, there's a lot that can be seen as a massive shift in terms of the quality of projects that are out there and what they're aiming to do. You also have projects like the possessed, possessed has been out there for a long time. They have over 200,000 followers on Twitter, and they mint it out in 7 minutes. Okay? 7 minutes for a project to mine out is pretty crazy and the min price not one was .25 per if you were on the allow list endpoint three 5 eth if you were on the public list to mint. So

"In the coming week I'm John Tucker in New York a later in the program We're going to get a preview of China's GDP and look at the impact of COVID on the region But first in France president Emmanuel Macron and his far right rival marine le pen are in the midst of the final sprint in the election runoff And for more let's head to London and bring in Bloomberg daybreak Europe anchor Tom McKenzie John president Emmanuel Macron and marine le pen the far right candidate are in close contention as the April 24th presidential runoff election nears The latest polls predict a very close runoff and put Macron only slightly ahead Let's cross over then to Paris where I'm joined now by a Bloomberg radio and television France correspondent gadolin goner and Anya Bloomberg reporter on the European government team garlin I'll start with you first You've been following the twists and turns of the first round It was closer than many he expected now Macron has been on the ground trying to shore up his support What have we been seeing Been hitting the campaign trail since the Sunday He was in a north of France on Monday region where my independent had the most votes And then he was in eastern France in Alsace on Tuesday which is a region where Jean Luc men also from the hard left actually came first And he was actually challenged in eastern France by a healthcare worker who was complaining about the lack of financial means for hospitals so this is clearly one of the issues Emmanuel Macron is going to have to face He's going to have to hit the campaign trail which is something he hasn't really been able to do before the first round because he was so busy on the diplomatic front with the war in Ukraine whereas man in the band on the other side has been campaigning up and down traveling up and down the country meeting with the French talking about various issues including inflation for the past 6 months And you mentioned the war in Ukraine and of course Russia's conflict there You talked about the fact that Macron has had a role in trying to reach out to Moscow to try to develop some level of diplomacy so far that hasn't cut through but he has now Macron shifted to trying to tie marine le pen to Putin Maybe she's already done that herself How effective has that been so far Clearly since Monday the strategy for some of my supporters has been to describe money in Lebanon as an ally of Vladimir Putin Remember back in 2017 during the last presidential campaign she actually had a loan from a Russian bank and she went to meet with Vladimir Putin in person In fact that picture of their meeting was on one of the leaflets that circulated before the first round Emmanuel has been trying to defend herself since the war in Ukraine But also she has some proposals in her programs including leaving the military command of NATO which would obviously pose a threat given the current situation with the war in Ukraine in Europe And yeah let's bring you in at this point how closely our officials in Brussels watching the French elections as we head up to April to the 24th the potential consequences of a marine le pen victory Of course they're watching very closely as this election could change the course of Europe as gallery mentioned that there is NATO the future of NATO is at stake How is it going to look like if France is now not part anymore of the structure of the structure of commandments the major commitments There's also the sanctions Early on sanctions against Russia she's also been very very vocal in warning against their impact on the French people So we are probably we will be witnessing the crumbling front within the EU So more debates and difficulties to return a common EU defense initiative which micron has championed since the beginning of his mandate How the market's Annie had been reacting to this potential scenario I think the markets have recently woken up to the le pen risk but they've also of course taking into account the fact that Macron is still leading polls He's still supposed to beat her That said there is a risk and no one is denying it And that is why my coins know a campaigning He has refined from doing so but this risk defense and markets have now woken up to this risk Spelling out very clearly there The risks that some in Brussels summon Europe see if marine le Ben is victorious just explain to us how her messaging has shifted over the years softened to some extent and whether she's likely to maintain that Again if she's a victorious with the caveat of course that so far Macron continues to lead if that lead is slim Main event doesn't officially support so called Brexit and exit of the EU or the Euro anymore but many analysts actually say that her views haven't really changed that much She still has some proposals including a welfare conditional for a national preference if you want for welfare or some other proposals including the primacy of French law over EU law So clearly that would trigger an EU crisis similar to what we saw with Brexit a few years ago She also wants for example to reintroduce some measures against the free trade of goods with new border controls new checks for goods at the border So that would undermine EU integration that would probably also undermine EU's capacity to respond to crisis In his economic achievements Can feel secure if you look at the numbers of French growth for example in 2021 French goes strongly rebounded after the pandemic to 7% last year which was actually the fastest among the biggest Eurozone economies is also managed to bring down an employment for more than 10% at the beginning of his Monday to about 7.5% currently which is actually very high for French standards very close to what we would call full employment of the French but recently he's been trying to appeal to left wing voters With some more social measures including for example a minimum pension of €1100 a month And these kind of proposals is what's going to make difference between these two runs because clearly man in Lebanon has put the issue of purchasing power and inflation which is at around 5% in France currently at the heart of our campaign Okay thank you both very much indeed Bloomberg radio and television France correspondent Galilean gone on and Anya Nobel and Bloomberg reporter on the European government team looking ahead to that crucial April 24th runoff in the French presidential elections between Emmanuel Macron the sitting president of course and his contender Martin le pen the consequences for the economy of France Europe and of course

"Intel provider dark feed had also posted yesterday about Conti ransomware op giving the company 5 days before leaking even more proprietary data on their public blog. It isn't clear if KP snacks is currently negotiating with Conti, or if it will pay a ransom end quote. British listeners, you'll have to let me know how serious this is if Britain is facing a crisp crisis. But also, as easy as it is to make jokes about this I mean, this is a real $600 million company that could be in real trouble. But on the brighter side of the road, sources are telling Financial Times that you got labs, the startup behind board ape yacht club NFTs is in talks to raise funds from andreessen Horowitz at a four to $5 billion valuation. It's first ever outside funding. Quoting FT. Any deal would mark the first institutional investment into yuga, a secretive outfit led by pseudonymous founders Gordon goner, emperor tomato ketchup, no sass, and gargamel. It would place the U.S. based company at the forefront of the frothy but lucrative market for crypto art, less than one year after it debuted the board ape yacht club collection with some items selling for millions of dollars each. Yuga did not respond to multiple requests for comment and recent decline to comment as well. A video series hosted by the nifty, a website for NFT data and analysis first reported that yuga was seeking investment. The price of board apes has soared to upwards of $250,000 since you could create it or minted 10,000 of the collectibles for about $300 a piece in April last year. They are used to signal stature on social networks such as Twitter, you could collect a cut from resales of board apes. According to some board API club owners, board ape characters are expected to feature in the Super Bowl halftime show next month, where collectors Snoop Dogg and Eminem are due to perform. It is one of the most watched television events in the U.S. every year and would be an opportunity to reach a more mainstream audience. Holders of board ape yacht club tokens retain full commercial usage rights, meaning that while you get created the collection, the company no longer controls the intellectual property for the individual works of art. Board apes also grant owners access to exclusive events and sought after merchandise. Investors in the surging NFT industry said venture capital groups are interested in cashing in on yuga's elite community of celebrities and wealthy enthusiasts, potentially through the creation of new collections and media projects. People are familiar with the talks that yugo could even issue crypto tokens to investors and existing board a polders, which could then prove valuable on the resale market. Yuga was incorporated in February 2021 and had just 11 full-time employees at the start of this year. It recently said on Twitter, quote, our ambition is for this to be a community owned brand with tentacles and world class gaming events and streetwear. Quote. Finally,.

"You know injured. And we're taking is that have are coming off an injury laden season and it just turned into an absolute turnstile with the offensive line. But when you look it's like hey let's drive penny soul but as i alluded to. That's why would have taken. But you know as i mentioned. It's like the amount of three wide receiver sets. That zack taylor plays. He believes his third. Wideout is starter. And that's just how he's ingrained. The other problem is penny. School has said that he's terrible right tackle and so if you think you already have your franchise left tackle. That's why that's partly why they didn't take because they weren't sure they could kick him right in that he would obliged to playing that position and he's proven to not be overly great from that position so he says but at some point you just a hanging to go get the best left tackle in this draft will figure out who's moving to right. We'll figure out what we're doing because right now. The interior of this offensive line is just horrific. So you have to be strong other places. But then they also went out and signed riley reef. So maybe that's the patchwork that they wanted at right tackle but again it falls in line with what they've done for the last decade like we're gonna take someone else's old scrap heaps the minnesota vikings who needs some offensive line. How like riley reef walk right. So it's just it's just a mess organizationally and where you see them. Spend more so on. The defensive side is is a little bit of an issue as well. Yeah you mentioned that spending on the defensive side. Second season arroyo. They've gone on a shopping spree so to speak in free agency this time over one hundred million dollars including allocating a huge amount of money to trey hendrickson. The pass rusher from the new orleans saints. And when you look at the bengals goner familiar faces like kara lawson gino atkins. We know wanted it out william jackson. We talked about an impact. He's going to have in a new destination and mackenzie alexander on what was a semi friendly franchise friendly bill of only one year but this is a bengals team bottom half and total defense. Each of the last five seasons worst defense against the run over the last two years and last season they gave up the most plays of twenty plus yards while also accumulating the fewest sacks definite correlation. Between what can we expect for the bengals defensively. I mean it's hard to get worse. But do we see a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel for what the stop unit can become. I'm really surprised. Lewin aroma will kept his job. But there is this bond there between him. And zack taylor. They're both in miami together. But this is really an organization that loves to procrastinate and use bubblegum to fix its holes. It's it's cincinnati. Just kind of what they do. So i i was a little surprised that they kept defensive. Coordinator is the lowest prices. Iron the first place. The bengals defense did deal with below average injury luck. So let's factor part of that in. Dj reader only played five games. He was their big signing last off season. Trae wayne's was another large. He missed the entire season with a pack but since he played a bottom ten schedule of offenses and finished sixth worst in defensive efficiency. That can happen. The scheduled projected offenses and passing. Offense does increase by tiny bit this season from a construction standpoint. You would think. Just kind of glossing over this as i did that. Cincinnati has a clue right six most expensive defensive lines seventh most expensive secondary one of the cheapest linebacker unit you like manage team analytically savvy. They really allocate their funds. Great but when you dig into the players. We've kind of hinted at this and where they've spent money. It's it's it's interesting like i. Think the defensive lines a little better than most do. But you'll let carlos lawson walk. He had a twenty four percent. Pass rush win rate last season. He signed with the jets for forty five million since he decided to spend. Forty million. On sam hubbard solid player. Number one run stop win rate but he had a pass rush win rate of ten percent six worst among qualifying defensive lineman. It's really an interesting choice to make knowing. This is a passing leak since he did sign. Trae hundreds things as you mentioned at the top there from new orleans yet. A monster season so to me. That's the definition of buying it peak after thirteen and a half sacks in the fourth is pressure right and it's difficult to project that kind of player. I know east twenty six so you know his peak might be rising but that is a tough season replicate especially when you think about this. He's only played forty five percent of snaps. The last two seasons. It's far different being arrested. Situational pass rusher going against an every down left tackle right but the defensive line is the strength of the bengals defense. They added larry ogunjobi as well but something to note since he faces a top five schedule of pass blocking offensive lines the season. So it's a massive leap. Sam hubbard needs to be better getting to the quarterback hendrickson can't regress if he's going to fill the devoid of lawson. There's question marks in the secondary. I'm not a tray winds guy. I voiced that over the years. Really bad hips thinking. He's going to fill. The void of william. Jackson is not going to happen. It's it's going to be a downgrade. They're the bengals decided to kind of go the volume route in the secondary. The last few years hoping that one guy can play to potential. So you go out. And the incas like shadow be in. Eli apple and apple reconnect with his ohio. State buddy von bell. So there's varying degrees of math with with with trae wayne's and should. Ob lie apple. Jessie bates though one of the best safeties and football. He's gonna clean up a lot of miscues from the corners. I do the mike helton signing. He's been great in the slot finished fourth and adjusted yards allowed coverage snap and a seventy one passer rating last year. He's.

"One of one of us works for a major corporation in one of us puts out a newsletter where three people pay for said news. So i mean if we're talking who who is the man of the people who who is the end of the corporate. I think we got roles reversed here a little bit. I can totally see the disappointment. I can totally understand feeling frustration that this isn't happen happening. I can just separate the two and feel both at the same time. I can acknowledge that. I want francis in god who did so on tuesday and writing big long piece on that on said newsletter that three people pay to subscribe to but many more have clicked to get in their email on a daily basis. When i write it so thank you to all those people that i would francis and goner was fighting. Of course it was francis and god who was fighting. But he's not and this is what we have. Additionally might question was. How do you feel about this fight. This fight is amazing. The fights that aren't happening don't necessarily have to influence this fight. I can kind of put the to in their own columns and feel two things at once about these things whereas it seems like can you just. You can't separate those things. And and you know i hope at some point going forward. You're able to get to that point and acknowledged that this is a wonderful fight that can exist in its own space and doesn't have to be sullied by your frustration. Both princeton god and john jones. Nah fighting people. If you're not interested in this fight which you should be. It's a good fight but if you're not in love head over heels despite like spencer is don't feel that don't let this meant guilty you into loving this fight and to necessarily having to watch this event. Okay if you want to more power to you. It's a fight again. Find headliner lot of good fights on the card. I think but again these. These i speak. I speak for the people. It's not always easy. It's not always appreciated clearly as be for the people so so let me try to decipher what we're saying here. Just just just so people understand we got. We got spencer draped in with a room full of gold drinking. It looks up. A peanut agree zhou in a tuxedo. You're over in the other side. Drinking malbak with a monocle on speaking for the common man like the way spencer views. This fight in your eyes is that spencer's going to go steady with this fight. He's gonna wind. He's going to dine as going to. He's going to give a promise ring. Then propose to this to this fight. You're just gonna take her out to dinner and never call her again. Is that how you're looking at like you're interested de for a day lemon law. Are you lemon lying. This fight aka. Listen there's definitely no guarantees of a second date got hit got. Kfc eyeing me over there. I got one championships looking a little frisky. Sometimes i'm just saying. I got other entertainment dollar but obvious. Of course i'll be watching this fight. But i mean you know that's our that's our job spencer y- you discussed before before. We just went on a crazy road. You discuss like sort of the aftermath like derek darcus wins the rematch trying to get the bad taste of people's miles from that awful. I fight zero. Gone tons of story former teammate. Both ties to france the coaching aspect. Too big fight over there. Like the the the people of france who have just been hankering for a big fight like if somehow the of ski do that fight in france would be absolutely gigantic. What's the better outcome for the ufc. A derek lewis win or cyril godwin. I honestly don't think it matters. And that's that's the beauty of this to me. Like i think either way you get a terrific fight provided where you know putting francis and god who in here with the winner as we rightfully should but as we can't guarantee because crazy should create crazy. Things happen all the time. But either way like i i understand that the first lewis and god who fight was it absolute disaster. No one should go back and watch again unless it's like as a penalty for something terrible you've done in your life but i don't think anyone look at these two set to fight again especially if derek comes off a derek lewis ask performance this weekend and things were going to get a repeat of that. They've both just an absolute clobbering people. Since then we know the circumstances that led up to it with derek. having back issues that stemmed from his knee issues which have subsequently been fixed and he's four and out since then franson garden was completely shook from the steep coach. Fight and didn't wanna get embarrassed again and therefore couldn't pull trigger but they've both put those things behind them and been so dominant that i don't think you can really look at it and go. Oh this is going to be terrible again. And then if serial godwin's wins the possibility of doing it in france. Ufc wants big events. That will be a colossal event for them if they're able to pull that off bringing those guys with ties to paris over there for a heavyweight championship fight would be massive. There's not a lot of people. There's fourteen people that have risen to the top of their division with undefeated records the most recent being israel sonya. Can you imagine what kind of maybe not star potential. Because he doesn't have the same kind of gravitational poll as francis and gone but how big and how great accomplishment it is if cyril goes undefeated and in just over three years goes for making his debut to winning the ufc heavyweight title. Like either way this plays out. We're getting a phenomenal fight. So unlike last week where we talked about bella tour and everybody with that company secretly quietly in the back behind everybody's rooting for aj mckee. I think the. Us's looks at this and just goes whatever happens is great as long as we get an interesting entertaining fight. Where one of these guys comes away looking. Really good aka. What do you think what's what's better for business and it's so fascinating that like just around two years ago. Cyril gone was fighting for the tko heavyweight championship. Isn't that crazy and k. Now we're talking about him. An interim title fight for the ufc two years in like two months later. It's absolutely insane that we're talking about the so with that being said what's the best case scenario for the ufc business wise is. Isn't the louis louis getting the win. We could see lewis and gano and hopefully get that bad taste over mods or is it in gone over gone because it just sounds good to say we know we can create great hashtags out of that and just the story that those two guys have gone is a great story as Winning up here and canada and the tko promotion all watching the he was showing flashes of what he could become. He was clearly a league above. Something guys fighting. Tko but derek lewis winning a ufc title at toyota center in houston just that moments. I i don't know if you can put a price on it.

"Which is the racist way you know and not the whole time like what's the metaphor. What's the metaphor the entire movie. And then at the end. I was like oh shit. You gotta watch this whole thing to get it. You gotta watch the entire entire thing. Yeah a and yeah. Those flashes with the sheriff in the dogs. And searching for the zambia that i started to be like oh wait this is like ooh it's unsettling to me it's unsettling demand. Then what happens with the the ending and the main character. I was like. Oh yeah this is the biggest boiler ball. She was a goner no matter what if he had walked out into a field with his hands up in the air. You know and said don't shoot you know it's mimicking the whole black lives matter movement right now. I can't breathe that kind of thing. Even if he had walked out said i'm human. I'm not zombie. They were shot him anyway because he was a black man he was dead no matter what in even though he'd made his way up to the addict he was killed so that you don't realize that until the last few minutes ago he's a goner no matter what in that just because he was black so it was my what i wrote down as it's a gut punch it was just an absolute gut punch at the end So chilling so timely. You don't realize it until the last few minutes of the film but while it took the took the breath out of me yet and people have always described this move as being a commentary on race relations in our country. Back in the nineteen sixties. And i always thought that was romero's intense but romero has said that he actually didn't intend to make a film about race insisting that dwayne jones. Who's the actor who plays ben. The main protagonist simply gave the best audition so he was on that was hired for that role clearly. The film inadvertently deals with race. You know whether or not romero intended that that's it. It just came out that way. Because ben is a black man who's trapped in a house surrounded by zombies with a bunch of white people who can't seem to really like fend off the zombies themselves. He's the one who's doing most of the work the entire time. And yeah at the end. He gets shot by a white sheriff. Which you know you you would think fifty two years later when have been such. It's i think it's almost even more of a gut punch now because fifty two years later it should not still be that way. I think it's almost more that way. Especially after twenty twenty and what just happened at the capitol. I was like holy shit. And you're right like all those like freeze frames at the end..

At the norwegian school of sport sciences professor bribes work has been foundational in philosophy of sport and it was a great honor for me to have him in the podcast sharing his thoughts and and his exciting work. I will briefly sum up the previous episodes in case you haven't listened to them already. Part one was an exploration of heidegger philosophy and how it can be applied to our thinking. Round sport goner charities working on technology of the sporting human being which builds upon heidegger philosophy but also extends into novel new directions. That can help us understand how we find ourselves in the sporting world in the second part we discussed heidegger notion of authenticity. An how governor has used the when exploring skydiving. We also discussed existentialist ideas about breakdown and temporarily and how to apply these ideas in sport and today in this third and final part of our discussion. We move away from existentialism and focus on ecological sport which has been one of the key topics of goners. Most recent work concerns of sustainability are among the pressing concerns of our collective human agenda worldwide. But what would ecologically sustainable and ecologically acceptable sport. Look like how much do we need to rethink the way we practice sport or even the fundamental ideas of sport. You know a society. Let's listen to what gunar has to say.

Sea Hunt - It's Still Alive - Cave Diving
"Off It's time for another installment of Sea Hunt. It's still alive. And today we're going back to season 2 episode 21 for cave diving cave diving Premier package on May 24th 1959 in this episode. Mike is working with a geologist George Brian who is searching for uranium in an underwater cave. George has been doing his diving with his wife Susie up until now but needs Mike helped to explore further and do more work. They're diving off the boat Olympia with its Captain pops. Mike and George hop in and swim down with her watertight geiger counter. Mike has a doubles and George's in a single tank as they approached the cave. They put the ear pieces from the geiger counter into their ear and they take out the probe Mike's off the Geiger counters chattering like magpies. All of a sudden things start to shake Mike is spinning around. George is at the cave entrance. It's an underwater landslide. When all the turbulence is over, there's a huge Rock blocking the entrance to the cave and George is trapped inside under a pile of rocks. Mike shines his light and injured signals back. Mike can't budget Iraq. So he heads back to the surface. He says he has less than an hour before Susie becomes a widow. Mike tells pops. He needs the ship-to-shore radio to call the pier and they need to bring out some big hooks to pull away the Rocks. He's talking really fast. George only has 46 minutes left now. He tells Pops that it's real bad. Now they're desperately scanning the surface for the help from the pier the boat rounds the point and gets there within 14 minutes Susie is on board in her scuba gear bag ready to help George is down to thirty minutes Suzy insists on helping Mike despite his objections. Now Mike and Susie make it to the caves entrance and struggle to get the anchors attached to the large Rock. Finally. They get them in place and Mike's ends up a flare for the boat to pull the rock the boat strains when suddenly the anchors Breakaway failure Susie is desperate trying to get into the cave. Mike is trying to calm her down and he said she has to be rough with her in the commotion Susie's air hose gets fouled and they have to Buddy breathe to the surface. Susie climbs on board the hooks won't work. She's crying pops is trying to comfort her. What will Mike do now? Here's where things really get interesting. Well, Mike just happens to have some Dynamite on board just in case you know, pop says that's kind of risky. Mike says there's no other option but like pops was in the Seabees in World War Two and says they use Gophers to carry a line through a pipe. So they concoct a plan to use a fish to thread the line off The Rock. Well, it just so happens. There's a barrel on Deck with a live fish might takes out the fish and ties a line around its tail and heads back down to the cave with the fish house and a speargun. He checks to see if George is still alive looks at his watch time is running out. He lets the fish go into the cave ties the fishing line to the heavier line and tries to log the fish back with his light like tries to grab the fish. It's too fast time for the speargun. He's got one shot takes dead aim, and our hero fish is a goner my calls in the fish pulls the line through and now has the heaving line around the rock ties the bowl and shoot a flare to the surface and Lifeboat cranks up its engine. Finally The Rock is pulled from the entrance my crushes in freeze George and brings him to the surface. Mike yells out. I got him and pop lets out a big Yahoo back on the boat. George and Susie are reunited. Mike is lounging now. They say George's leg will be okay. They're talking about the fish that saved George Susie says that were fish was Mike Nelson. As the episodes ends, they're talking about pops idea from when he was in the Navy and Pop's final line is I wasn't in the Navy. I was just the Seabees. Hm wonder what my CB friends would think of that now you might recognize George if you're of a certain age, that would be Herbert Anderson better identified with Dennis the Menace his father Henry Mitchell. Well, that was certainly not what we think of when we think about cave diving using a fresh to thread a line around Iraq is a little out there but if anyone can do it, it would be Mike Nelson on Sea Hunt. off

A Businessman's Recovery
"S Falcon of the red. D Line bound from New York to Maracaibo Venezuela glided up the bay and docked at the wharf in the port of La Guaira on a hot tropical afternoon early in nineteen twenty seven. I was a passenger on. That boat bound the oilfields of Maracaibo as an employee of the X. Oil Company under a two year contract at a good salary and maintenance there I hope to buckle down to two years of hard work and save some money but above all to avoid any long continued drinking. That would interfere with work because that had cost me too many jobs in the past not that I was going to give up drinking entirely. No such a step would be too drastic but down here in the oilfields with a bunch of hard working hard drinking. Good fellows I too would learn how to handle my liquor and not let it get the best of me again. Such an environment would surely do the trick which surely teach me to drink moderately with the best of them and keep me away from those long disastrous sprees. I was still young. I could make the grade and this was my chance to do it. At last I had the real answer and my troubles were over. Red And I who had become bosom shipboard companions on the way down from New York stood at the rail watching the activity on the dock incident to getting the vessel secured alongside. Red was also on his way to Maracaibo to work for the same company and we agreed that so long as we were going to be here overnight we might as well go ashore together and look the town over red was a swell fellow who might take a drink now then who might even get drunk once in a while but he could handle his liquor and did not go to any great successes. Thousands of other fellows like him who have been my drinking companions from time to time. Were in no way responsible for the way I drank or what I did. Or the way liquor affected me so off. We went red and I to do the town and do it. We did after a few drinks. We decided there wasn't much else to do in town except to make a round of the Cantinas have a good time. Get back to the ship early and get a good night's rest so what harm would a little drinking do now. I reasoned especially with one full day and two nights ahead to get over it. We visited every Cantina along the straggling main street of La Guaira and feeling high wide and handsome red and I decided to return to the ship. When we roll down to the dock. We found that our ship had been birth off from the wharf about thirty feet and that it was necessary to take tender out to her. No such ordinary method would satisfy red and myself so we to climb the stern hawsers hand over hand to get on board the flip of a coin decided that I would go first so off. I started hand over. Hand up the Hawes her now even a good experienced sailor perfectly sober would never attempt such a foolhardy feet and as was to be expected about halfway up the houser. I slipped and fell into the bay with a loud splash. I remember nothing more until next morning. The captain of the boat said to me young man. It is true that God looks after drunken fools and little children. You probably don't know it but this bay is infested with man eating sharks and usually a man. Overboard is a goner. How close you were to death. You don't realize but I do yes. I was lucky to be saved. But it wasn't until ten years later after I had time and time again tempted. Fate by going on protracted benders that I was really saved not until after I had been fired from job after job. Tried the patience of my family to the breaking point alienated. What might have been many many good lasting friendships taking my dear wife through more sorrow and heartaches than any one woman should bear in a lifetime after doctors. Hospital psychiatrist rescuers changes of scenery and all the other paraphernalia. That go with the alcoholics futile attempts to quit drinking. Finally I dimly began to get the realization that during twenty years of continual drinking every expedient. I tried and I tried them all had failed me. I hated to admit the fact even to myself that I just couldn't lick booze I was licked. I was desperate. I was scared I was born in one thousand nine hundred. My father was a hard working man who did the very best. He could to support his family of four on a small income. Mother was very good to US kind. Patient and loving as soon as we were old enough my mother sent us to Sunday school and it so happened that as I grew older I took quite an active interest becoming successively a teacher and later superintendent of a small Sunday school in Uptown New York when the United States entered the world war in April nineteen seventeen. I was underage but like most other youngsters of that period wanted very much to get into the fray. My parents of course would not hear of this but told me to be sensible and wait until I was eighteen being young in restless however and fired by the military spirit of the Times. I ran away from home to join the army in another city there. I joined up. I didn't get into any of the actual hostilities at the front but later after armistice served with United States forces occupying the Rhineland working my way up to a good noncommissioned rank while serving abroad. I started to drink. This of course was entirely my own choice. Drinking by a soldier during those times was viewed with a degree of indulgence by both superiors and civilians. It seems to me as I recall it now that even then I wasn't satisfied to drink like the normal fellow. Most of the United States army of occupation were sent back home in nineteen twenty one but my appetite for travel had been wetted and having heard terrible stories of prohibition in the United States I wanted to remain in Europe where a man could raise thirst subsequently I went to Russia then to England and back to Germany working in various capacities my drinking increasing and my drunken escapades getting worse so back home in nineteen twenty four with the sincere desire to stop drinking. And the hope that the prohibition I had heard so much about would enable me to do it in other words that it would keep me away from it. I secured a good position but it wasn't long before I was initiated into the mysteries of the speakeasy to such an extent that I soon found myself once more jobless after looking around for some time I found that my foreign experience would help me in securing work in South America so full of hope once more resolve that at last. I was on the wagon to stay. I sailed for the tropics. A little over a year was all the company I then worked for would stand of my continual drinking and ever lengthening benders. So they had me poured on a boat and shipped back to New York. This time I was really through. I promised my family and friends who helped me get along while looking for another job that I would never take another drink as long as I lived and I meant it but alas after several successive jobs in around New York had been lost. And it isn't necessarily tell you the 'cause I was sure that the only thing that would enable me to get off the stuff was a change of scenery with the help of patient long-suffering friends. I finally persuaded an oil company that I could do. A good job for them in the oilfields of Maracaibo but it was the same thing all over again back to the United States. I really sobered up for a while long enough to establish a connection with my present employers. During this time I met the girl who is now. My wife at last here was the real thing I was in love. I would do anything for her. Yes I would give up drinking. I would never never do anything to even remotely affect the happiness. That now came into my life. My worries were over. My problem was solved. I had sown my wild oats and now I was going to settle down to be a good husband and live a normal happy life
"Going to talk about birds scooters which are the electric scooters or a type of scooter that has proliferated just about every major city. At least the United States all around the world I know in markets like Europe and I'm North America the middle the Middle East. They're all over the place You nor I have any real experience with a you know these these electric scooters doing nominal GonNa ride one of those silly. I have I tell you I. I have a lot of knowledge about them. But I've never been on one. And maybe that's GonNa Change soon. I think I think I'm due for a ride here but I I would bet if I had. I thought it was a betting person. I would bet that Ben is somebody that has used these if not just once or twice probably a lot. I hope I'm not giving anything away that he doesn't want but he's he lives sort of nearby. He does drive a vehicle so he might be too far to use. One of these but I would I just have a feeling that getting around town. He did live real close and that was no secret. He lived real close to this building in an old Ford Factory. As a matter of fact it's Kinda cool. He was homeless. I mean they made it into apartments. You know But but I know that you know he was real close to here and if you look outside our window right now from our office we're on the fourth floor and if you look outside I would bet anything that we would be able to spot just on the curbside probably a dozen electric electric scooters on the curb waiting for people to use in probably two or three in motion. You know people on them in bike lanes would yes. I would guess so. And even when it's raining you may even see a few in the roadway that have been washed down down which I have seen that before too window out here. Have you really washed downstream Yeah Yeah Torrential rain down here and then you know with all the hills and everything ends up being like milk. Small rivers running through downtown. If it rains it's A. It's a disaster practically if it rained the more than about an inch. And that's you know. Part of the problem with the scooters is exactly that the fact that they are relatively lightweight and just can be scattered about Willy Nilly. Oh I know we're gonNA talk about that because parking is an issue with these as well but Just for those. That don't know what we're talking about. It and I didn't didn't think that this is really going to be an issue until yesterday when we were talking off. Air About this This program in particular and I said well. We don't really need to describe them because everybody knows what these are right and you said probably not. Yeah most definitely. I mean they're in a lot of larger cities in the United States and around the world but there are plenty of places that do not have these scooters at least owned by these companies kind of dispersed everywhere as a mode of transportation. Yes sure you're in a city like Atlanta where there's close and we're bordering on seven million people now it's about six million I believe and And you're gonNA find a lot of something like this you go to Dallas go to Where was he recently? San Antonio uh-huh Tonio. Yeah San Antonio there you go to Miami you go to you know Los Angeles San Francisco. They're all over the place and some of the bigger cities In fact I've seen just even there's one brand of bird. We'll talk about many different brands but bird in particular. I think they're in something like a hundred and twenty different markets so it means I guess cities they call the markets but What we're talking about in particular here if you're not familiar is a A kick scooter. You know Kinda screwed that you stand up on. It's got a little deck in two small wheels Handlebar that is coming up off of a stem. You know straight stem in front of you. Normally you would put one foot on the deck and then kick like he went on a skateboard to get moving. Put your second foot up coast on right. These have have a wheel or a wheel motor motor in the wheel electric and drives these things and it actually is pretty efficient at moving along. Pretty good you would think that I would have a lot of difficulty here in Atlanta because of the terrain that I just mentioned it's very hilly here even in downtown but these really move people along pretty good you get up to speed pretty quick and I don't know what that speed it is. I want to say it's it's above ten miles per hour. It's probably closer to twelve or even fifteen. Maybe I would say between ten and fifty s somewhere on yeah again no personal experience on it yet. But I'm going to get there so I don't have personal experience on the scooter either but I do have experience being around them list. I don't ride On the beltline often but it is a nice little connector to get from one road to another sal hit it every now and then and the scooters are are outrageous now the beltline is a walking path. That is it's like wasn't an old railroad line. Here yeah they they do this with many old railroad lines across across the country. They turn them into by gas walking past recreational pattern. Tear the tracks off smooth it out. Put some pavement down and they've got some trees nearby a lot of businesses backup to the property so you can walk to and from businesses. That way I I don't know how many miles listen goes but it's big it's a long it's long Walking path that is accessible folded. Just about everybody downtown. They're always lengthening it. On either side you know they. This one here isn't is not continuously very long. It's like maybe two miles of the section. But they have a bunch of different sections throughout the city that they that you can link up with bike paths and sidewalks and there is one that is in Smyrna Georgia that goes it was all the way into Alabama's called the silver comet. Yes then in Alabama its name changes but it does keep going for a few more miles and Alabama Alabama Aniston. Maybe actually good ways in. Yeah that's that's the example of one of these trails. It's very long silver comet trail. Okay so yeah check into that all right well so i. I think a lot of people are familiar with that type of environment in a city. You know they've repurpose some of these These old train tracks are railroad the pathways that they left behind. Once the railroad has goner honor into no longer in use. But yeah we we find a lot of traffic on that area or on that That walking path they're formerly walking path now it's scooters bikes and all kinds of things early on you know you'd find these things on sidewalks. Well it was a little bit dangerous little iffy you know when you walk out of a business and you know scooter. That's running silently just zips pass ask you go in you know twelve fifteen miles an hour. It's a little bit frightening. Yeah because it happened. It happened often the report of Pedestrian Scooter Collisions And unfortunately there have been a lot of You Know Scooter car collisions. That have happened and will not to let the cat of the bag or anything but I mean there's been several deaths here in Atlanta alone That have led to Some some problems with With the city between the city and the scooter companies. So there's a lot to really talk about here. They're they're it's actually. It's not a bad solution for what they intended for. For the micro mobility I think is what they call it. It's like the last mile transportation is what they the virtue. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure that the the scooters are being used in that way I feel like the e bikes have gotten more of a grip on that type of situation they. They're definitely way more organized like they had the stations. Sion's where you put the pikes to charge whatnot. There's more of an infrastructure there whereas the scooters are just Kind of littered about so you're talking about the same thing only a bike form. Yup the electric city bike is one of them. And there's something called Joe. There's one called jump. I don't remember some of the other names of these. I've got a list of operators operators here in the city of Atlanta that include. You know the names and the number of units that they have but I don't have them broken down by a what type of device that they market into the in ear. So there's There's bird bows bolt. Gotcha jump lime. Lift spin wheels. All these are operating within the city limits of just Atlanta and you can multiply apply this by however many large city centers are nationwide and then also worldwide was. We said you know. Just one of those companies Bird I believe operates in something like one hundred twenty different markets or maybe. I'm thinking of lime. I can't remember which because we had some big news recently about lime Lime has just decided this month to pull out of Atlanta they're they're removing themselves from the Atlanta market because of some restrictions have been placed on them. Yeah San Antonio is another place. They're pulling out of which I found surprising because because I felt like they were everywhere in downtown San Antonio. Yeah but you know. Here's the confusing thing. Is that a lot of them. Look the same. These all have the general shape and appearance appearance of each other. They they might have a little bit of Different sticker package or different color combination. That they use you know red and black or purple Black Green and white or whatever it happens to be there all branded handed in a certain way. But maybe we're seeing you know Bird scooters and thinking they were lime scooters and it's easy to confuse very
iPhone Special Event: September 2019
"The september events are one of the most most stable. I i think in the tech community is like apples almost certainly going to have a september event almost certainly going to be iphones there.

Depending on hardware features that get introduced during the event so i feel like if you if you were goner predicted event maybe w._d._c. is predictable. The march ones and the october ones are always kind of wild cardi a little bit but i feel like the september one. We always have a sense of what's coming ming every year.
