"It's interesting because of the NBA now. They just run pick and roll until they figure out who they want on you. That's all it is. It's like a high pick and roll leg. Right. You watch basketball now. If you don't like high pick and rolls, you might as well turn it off and go watch something else because you'll see about a thousand of those every game. Now dream was not a guy you try to get on you. That was the guy you tried to get off of you, but I would imagine they'll match up, you know, by position. A lot of times you'll see in games where it gets, you know, depending on if a guy can score or not, they'll put a guard on him because they know you're not going to go to him, but I would think it'll be, you know, step on smart, play on Brown, Wiggins on Tatum. Draymond on Horford and loony on Williams, I would think that's the way they'll go. I mean, you could flip flop 5 and four if you wanted to. You could flip bob draymond, but the other one's got to be, I mean, but again, they're going to be on celebrities at a guard somebody a little bit. But what the words that are really good job of landscape, they kept trying to get switch curry onto Dante's. And what they did is they called a hedge and curry would hedge out and stay until Wiggins got back. So he allowed Wiggins enough time to get back and then he would fire back to his guy or go to the middle of the paint and then rotate out. But they weren't going to let him just go and stuff. So I don't know what to sell this to do. I would imagine it's already going step a little bit because he's not a bad defender at all. He just the weak link on this team. I mean, it's a really good defensive team. So yeah, I would think, but draymond, if you watch draymond, you take a few serious and just watch him. He always is his head on a swivel. He always sees what's going on and he's always able to come over and help. Like if somebody gets beat, he's there. He just knows what's going on. And I find myself sometimes just watching him. I won't even watch the ball. Others watch draymond and kind of watch him and see what he does on the defensive end. It really is kind of fun. I know people are like, you're kind of weird, but yeah, I am, but still it's pretty cool to do and you understand him a lot better as a player. If you do that. Tom enjoy the finals. Look for my call during it, love your insight, as always, appreciate the time. Anytime, rich. Look for it. You got it. Thanks for calling. That's Tom tolbert right here in the rich eisen show driving around grandpa, grandpa Tom. Right here on the rich eisen show. Fascinating conversation. I just love that sort of stuff. And anybody just are there people out there who think draymond green is not Hall of Famer right now. Are there people out there? I hope not. Yeah, for sure. Just because they don't like them. Just don't like them. They're like, how can this guy, you know? Two points. Yeah, two points, ten rebounds, 6 assists. Yeah, because if you're someone who just looks at the paper and reads the box score, then that's what you're feeling. That just shows right there. Right there. You just heard from tolbert right there. Steve Kerr, what's the secret sauce defensively? Draymond green. Draymond, you want to take Horford? Yeah, got him. Draymond, you want to take Tatum? Yeah. Got him. Jamie, what do you want? What do you want to do? Time lord, you want to take him? Yeah, I got him. Got him. Oh, somebody just broke down defensively, who's right there? And then he's ahead of the play. I love that. Yes, smart player. Oh yeah, the intelligence one that guy is just ridiculous. But you know my only problem with draymond green is, right? Where he went before he got to the gym. That's it. That's my only problem with her. Michigan state. And he plays on your favorite NBA team. My warriors. Not a lot of people thought they were, you know, championship quality. This is just great. We have some skin in this. Brock mitigation is going to be right now. It's maybe still a little fun and games, but when the series starts and it's on the line and the Celtics have a chance to win it, and I keep coming in calling my warriors. It's going to get ugly. I know it right now. He really can't say anything because he adopted the bulldogs. No, no. He's got a problem. He's got a problem with you having multiple teams when you have a problem with him having multiple teams. That's his point, even though you don't have a leg to stand on TJ, sorry. I don't care how dare you. Let's take a break. We'll come back. Aaron Donald wants to get paid except he says it's not about money..

Reggie had a key to replace and no problem letting himself in. I'm coming into your bedroom. Don't be naked. He stuck his head in visibly relieved that she was indeed clothed and pajamas. His attention shifted to the screen. Is this it where karen pointed to the right of the screen as the video cut to a group of four three men one woman. That's her and blue. You look alike. She glared and turned up. The volume cumby enlightened at this four day celebration in conference at the grand opening of the new heavenly duty worship center. Horace sinclair invites you to change your life for now and forever bishop horace sinclair spiritual leader to thousands. Perhaps millions when you counted as television ministry. That's who the ad campaign was really for sinclair's power and purpose conference had been in the works for the last two years set to coincide with the grand opening of his new worship hall heavenly duty. It was a fifty million dollar mega church designed to hold a congregation of thirty thousand in the spiritual community. It was the biggest of big deals. All of the celebrities of gospel ministry and evangelism would be in attendance. Plus a crowd of eager worshippers could rival a super bowl audience including cairns enraptured mother. Her mom had been a loyal follower of the good bishop for most of karen's life from his original services in high school gyms to his first church in the suburbs of portside virginia. To now jessica. Manning was a servant to god i and horace sinclair second over the year. She established a place in the good bishops inner circle thus her prominent appearance in the power and purpose adds her access to church resources and the bishop himself had many of the other church members particularly the women dipping into the envy bucket of the seven deadly all despite having a daughter like karen. The ad ended with ticket and contact information. Though karen was willing to wager. There were no more tickets. It was long rumored the conference would sell out wasn't like there was much time left. It started tomorrow. She clicked the television off and turn to reggie will he asked. She raised an eyebrow. Well what are you going. Her gaze flitted to the two tickets wedged into the molding over her mere front row seats gift. For mom she shrugged. I think you should. He said i know what you think. It's easy for you to think that you didn't grow up with her. She searched for a word. Powerful enough to construe the years of degradation. She suffered at her mother's hands rants. She threw more scriptures in my face than those crazy apocalypse. Guys on the corners. Downtown things could be different now. I've seen bishop sinclair on. Tv and he focuses strongly on forgiveness. Maybe your mom has forgiven me. Her voice was hot venom. What exactly is she. Forgiving me four. Reggie he raised his hands. One palm out the other grasping a large padded manila envelope. It will never be said that reggie the wise does not know when to shut up. Karen angry at reggie for going where she didn't want to go but equally mad at herself for being angry at reggie hopped off the bed and disappeared into our walk in closet. It was easier to cool off when she couldn't see anyone when she couldn't feel the waves of emotion. Wafting off of them. She tugged the days. Close off hangers. What's that envelope you're holding. Don't know i grabbed your mail on the way up. Open it as she sifted through her denim. She heard the envelope rip. Then speak of the reggie caught himself and then finished. It's from your mom. She found him holding a leather bound. Bible and sheet of paper. Her note says god told me to send you this figures he cracked the bible's cover chuckled. What she asked. It's autographed by horace sinclair. The guy autographed bibles. The cynic in her nearly overloaded. Let me see. Reggie tossed it tour immediately. Took a turn for the worst. She felt the warmth immediately. The heat spread from her hands of her arms hit her chest and went supernova through the rest of her body. Reggie in her. Bedroom blinked away. There were people too many people. The aisles are choked. Some rush to the exits and others rushed the stage. There is already a crowd there though they huddle over someone she cannot see she can see. The blood drips over the edge of the stage. There's crying so much crying in the huddle. She sees her own face. Crows feet clutch the corners of her eyes and her mascara smeared. Karen doesn't wear makeup and she's yet to develop her first wrinkle. This is her mother's face horrified behind mom a banner of ten foot tall letters read power and purpose a sloppy bright red splatter fills the oh and power as if painted by child who hasn't yet learned to color inside the lines all becomes quiet the crowd at the stage including her mother turned to her and stare with pleading eyes she looks past them to what they conceal before a man with a ragged hole in his chest lies motionless gone from this world. Chorus sinclair the bible smack floor. Karen leapt backward banging her head against the closet door. She went lent in slid to her but her legs felt like cooked spaghetti and her breathing was ragged. Reggie knelt over her but did not touch not yet. What did you see. Someone's going to the images. Were still fresh in her mind. Still shocking ones going to kill horse and claire adrenaline flow through her. She sprang to her feet and sprinted around reggie in search of her cell had to call mom and her wake she heard reggie say why is it. Never the winning lotto numbers. The first time it happened she was eleven years old. They've been visiting her grandparents and in a small close knit community. Where most folks knew jessica manning and her precious little daughter. Karen it happens in the market when jessica bumped into an old friend from high school and began to chew the man's ear about her new church heavenly duty. Her is glossed over before he politely excused himself claiming a forgotten appointment. It was good to see you again. Jessica he shook moms hand then turned to karen you too little bear. He patted her head and she cringed not from the odd nickname but from the pictures flashing suddenly through her mind. She saw the man on a ladder trimming branches on a tree. An electrical line was tight rope through the foliage. He did not notice the wire until his trimmers into it and then it was too late. The man quickstep to the checkout line. Leaving jessica in his dust and karen nearly in tears. Mom he's in trouble. Mom's attention was on a leafy head of lettuce. You got that right. You can tell. He don't know jesus no. She told her mother which he instinctively knew to be the man's fate. If no one interceded on his behalf jessica manning her daughter out her expression unchanging. When karen was done jessica. Karen thought her mother would stop the man before he got away instead. She said i won't have you making up any more stories. No i'm not making it up. I saw it only. God can see the future little girl now. Stop this nonsense. karen panicked. She didn't want the man to get hurt and she also knew her mother said wasn't true she'd learned otherwise in sunday school. What about prophets. Mom they can her mother's palm cut off the words like a severed limb the slap echoed in aisles. Don't you ever try turn in the teachings of the lord to support lies.

"You know but the horses with body condition all of the horses with body with a higher body condition took longer than the horses with the body conditions or than the horses that had the higher grain in the higher body condition. There were twelve of them. And i took all twelve of them and sold them at the end. Those three i had some people come and help me write him and no one else could ride them. They were so spooky and touchy just because they had so much energy right. It was just fueling that self preservation. Yeah that is so interesting. And i think that that's awesome because the more science we can bring to what we do. Not just i done it this way for years and i keep on doing it this way right the more we can do the science and that's why i think it's so cool that as a horse trainer you have that education that you had to do this for your master's thesis this project because now you're able to utilize it in what you do every day and teach others about that. Yeah it's it's fun. And i you've been around horses i know and i i was raised around. You know really get horsemen and clinics. And even when we're starting colts all the time growing up we always had people coming in with my dad and i always heard this was the same. Maybe you can relate to it. they're fill that their. Do you feel that. They're you filled out. Whether it was dad or grandpa tom. There you feel that. That's what i really tried to. This is what is there. What am i feeling. Ali trying to give that a name and a definition as a teacher. You know it's. It's really fun for me when i could name that define it and and then i'll even have some of those kids get on some of my horses where they can feel it. It's amazing how fast them kids can begin to replicate it fall. And this is one of the reasons wade. Why certified horsemanship wants to do more with you. Because we're doing the same thing but on the riding instructor in barn manager side right. We're saying let's number so if you're a level two instructor with us you know how to teach walk trot beginning kanner. So if i'm hiring you. I know you can teach walk trot beginning kanner right so i mean it's the same exact thing except on the horse side so once again. We're just so excited to have you come to our international conference in fort worth not only to do this talk and kind of show as with some people out there on horses some of it in action but also be able to chat with some of our other folks about all the different things we can do together so thank you very much Is where is the best place wade for p. Find you should they find you on a website social media. What's best well. There's i would say three different websites. Not the overcomplicating At the college there. Tv he equine so tv.

"That but i. i don't know how i don't know how many people do that with trump. Well i just think that practice pads in general are one thing. Where if you're doing it it's a you know. Obviously there's more beneficial ways to practice than others than just kind of plain fun stuff you already used to but yeah it's just all good and it's all the practicing so I think it's i think it's a good thing now before we were getting closer to the end here but i want to take a step back here and ask you about a couple particular pads that i'm seeing well. I don't want to mention that. I've talked about it on the show before but my grandpa was a drummer and In the posted a picture on that forum on saad and the photo. That's so sweet. And he's he's sitting on the side of his bed he smoking a pipe And he's practicing. But i guarantee and i think he told me when i was younger i guarantee he just took saw and just cut out a piece of wood and then them you know leather or rubber. Whatever on glued it down and He would also talk about cutting newspaper and putting that in his bass drum and just all those old school sara techniques. But i just wanted to give homemade pads because then it's like it was different. It's post war. I mean obviously which was kind of i. Guess a boom in the fifties. But i think that was around fifty six or fifty seven so shout out to my grandpa. Tom connett up. Who's no longer with us. But it was a big influence but a couple of things here. So looking back at the drum forum thread the gladstone. The billy gladstone kind of vacuum drum pad that sits in the middle of your snare and converts your snare. We'll talk about that a little bit. I mean that everyone has used one of those at some point in their life. Oh yes oh yes I think if that's what you grew up with than you thought it was great. Because that's what you had access to. Yeah i think that it. I mean if you play on the thin part of that pad get a snare sound. That's a little muted makes your mom happier. I think that's not an optimal pad for developing great drum technique. I think it's an optimal path for making your drum quieter. Exactly and sometimes you have to make choices as we say for my people for the sake of peace you have to make choices for the sake of peace and the gladstone pad was really great for that i didn't have a gladstone pat until Tried one in high school i went. Why is four I have friends who are ten to twenty years older than me who who've recall those paths with great nostalgia but they never used one today. Yeah i used. I briefly had one and i remember putting it on a few times and just thinking i do not like this like i don't like the i love the history of it obviously but i don't i didn't like it didn't let me tell billy gladstone was a nice jewish boy who understood that sometimes you have to make choices for the sake of peace and he probably developed that pad to make mother's happy. He did not develop that pad to make drummers happy. That's funny that's a good way to look at it. I get billy gladstone. I completely get him and love him and love his contributions to drumming absolutely..

"Edition from NPR News of Lulu Garcia Navarro. It is flu season, and it wasn't that long ago that public health officials were warning about the danger of a flu epidemic on top of the Corona virus pandemic. But we have been wearing masks and keeping socially distant and a record number of people got a flu shot will turn out to Dr William Schaffner. He's an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University for a flu season. Update. Doctor Schaffner. Thanks for being with us, good to be with you always. I want to begin with a moment from some other reporting I did for this weekend I was at the pediatric intensive care unit at a local hospital. And Dr Michael Bell of Children's National told me this usually this time of year we have dozens of kids with cold viruses that are sick with us and this year absolutely nobody. It's bizarre. And the numbers bear that out. Last year, the CDC counted some 405,000 hospitalizations for the flu in the United States so far this season 165. That's not a mistake. Not 1000 Just 165. And that all really be from social distancing. Well, I think social distancing is important, of course, but you're right flu has been essentially non existent. The major issue, of course, is that Children generally are thought of as having the distribution franchise for the influence of virus. They produce much Maura virus, They shed more virus for longer periods of time. And so they spread it amongst themselves. And then they bring it home to Mom and Dad and Susie and Grandpa Tom. Well, Children haven't been getting together. They have been Going to school. Virtually they haven't been playing together fascinate. And of all the reasons I think that's the major reason with had such a low flu season. I'm also wondering, though, because people also haven't been in offices. You know where I can attest. I have gotten sick before off course we haven't traveled We adults that is we haven't gone into offices were wearing masks were observing social distancing not going toe large groups. So the transmission among adults. Also, the opportunities for transmission have been profoundly reduced. But I don't think that's the major issue because you see Cove. It's been transmitted among adults. And so how is it that we haven't had flu and I think the critical issue is the Children. I had heard. Some doctors speculate, and this is really speculation that there might be something with Cove in 19 itself, or the coronavirus that blocks the flu virus from proliferating insider host. Speculation, but I haven't seen anything scientifically to promote that to support that I should say so. I think this shows us that viruses, even respiratory viruses are not the same. Covert can train be transmitted very readily among adults. Very contagious, but flu I think really needs Children to spread it around amongst themselves and then seed if you will, the adults in their home and their neighbors. I imagine there's a lot of investigation into this right now. What do you think The big takeaway is, though? For a flu specialist like yourself in order to save lives When the corona virus pandemic is over? I think the important thing is remember. Fall will be coming this year. Get your flu shot. Because we'll be back amongst ourselves, providing opportunities for that virus to spread, and it also makes people very sick. Sends him to the hospital and kills them. I'm afraid many of us didn't get a boost from encountering the flu virus this year, and so we haven't had a chance to build up our antibodies all the more important to get vaccinated this fall. Dr. William Schaffner is a professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University and a very clear explainer of issues to do with the flu. Thank you very much. My pleasure. Now to the border, where tens of thousands of migrants have spent nearly two years in squalid tent camps and shelters and dangerous northern Mexican cities.

"grandpa tom" Discussed on WJR 760

"O'clock here on this Wednesday morning edition of the Paul W. Smith Show on W. J. R. I made my impassioned plea once again for us all to to think about not only our own pain and suffering through this pandemic, but especially The kids. The kids who should be in school who actually want to be in school? Wish they were in school and their suffering greatly and having more anxiety and having the need to Of thankfully they're there to speak to counselors and therapists and and people that are out there to help those that can get the help. Also talked about how tough it is on teachers. Um, you know, there's some people that take shots at him. I love Tucker Carlson. But he was taking a shot of the teacher and probably rightfully so who was off on vacation somewhere? Never wanting to go back into the classroom because they didn't wanna be. Infected and all of that stuff, But most teachers Care and are concerned and worried about their students, their kids. And taking that moment to remember the teachers. Remember the students remember mental health? And schools touched one of our regular listeners. Regular guests, Tom Watkins. Who on two counts here as former state school superintendent and former CEO of the Detroit Wayne County Mental Health Authority and an expert By the way on China. In fact, he wrote me a note saying, If you would've mentioned China, you would've had the trifecta. Well, I did, in fact mentioned China. And Mr Ma, who's missing. But that's another story. The guy is Tom Watkins, who we depend on all the time and mostly, frankly, we've depended on him talking about China. But today it's about mental health. And how everyone is affected, and we should all understand that. And I don't know. Bring along some patients and bring along some help and guidance that Tom always nice to hear from You even nicer to always know that you're listening. Thank you, sir. It's good to be with you. Part of you and again. Thank you for Beijing. This very important issue. You know, our schools are the true statue of liberty of this great country of ours. There's not another institution on America today that truly takes the tire. The hungry, the poor, the huddled masses, people that speak English as a second language and Children with disabilities and give them hope. An opportunity and our great teacher do believe that our schools of the Statue of Liberty, our teachers are the torch lighting the way for us all And today, with covert schools being out for a song that been going back and forth between in person online education has been a strain on students, teachers. Hand parents and so recognizing this and making sure that we're you know, clearly focusing on the three R's there reading writing arithmetic, but also the emotional support. Off our students during this tough, tough time that they're all facing. Ended up and I think we can't remind ourselves and others that enough and doing all we can, as you put it to lift up our teachers. Are are stay at home Moms are moms and dads, but it always falls mostly on the moms that have a job outside of the house that they're doing from the house, but also all of the responsibilities of the in school learning and the regular Responsibilities moms have in the house. It's tough on everyone. You had a nice piece. That you wrote to Tom Watkins. I don't have it right in front of me at the moment, but its memories Grandpa Tom and Dylan. And you say from this from Dealing with your 2.5 year old grandson. You were helping out providing childcare for if you will, and it really opened your eyes gave you kind of a greater appreciation. For moms and teachers, A lot of people probably dealing with that and should take a moment to understand that as well, tell me about your experience time. Well, it was one of those things. That building's been tremendous memories with one of my Three grandson, But Dylan, a real character a joy to be with, But you know, God made childbirth for young people for a reason. And my agent being with 2.5 year old all day long. I was tired. I mean, just thinking about the experience makes me tired and butter rekindles the love and the special memories. We made a pact to really reinforcing how tough it is for. Our moms that are taking care of the Children and all some time taking care of the household and working a full time while certainly these were some great memories that were made I A t the end of the day, I'd longed for the nap. My grandson never wanted to take Grandpa Tom certainly needed by the end of the day. Lonely. Imagine, since we have you and you're an expert in these three areas, at least for us. I think you're probably quite the expert and being a grandpa, too. Tom Watkins, former state school superintendent, former CEO of the Detroit Wayne County Mental Health Authority and expert on China. Let's get to that third leg of the stool. If you will. China. And I suspect You are happy that there appears to be A better opportunity for a better relationship, although I suggest that the new administration tread lightly and in an intelligent way when they're dealing with China, but that I guess goes without saying, but I said it, but you do look forward to a better relationship with China or so it would seem Well, I think that we have to China makes up 1/5 of all humanity. Second largest world economy coming on strong, perhaps, of pass us. In the next five years. So what happens in China? As we've talked about many times? Paul doesn't stay in China s O. What we need to do is to build a relationship that takes care of America's national interest. Clearly focusing on that. And I expect Joe Biden will continue to put pressure on China to comply with the rules regulations that are set up for all countries and at the same time building alliances which Japan and me in Europe in the like so that we can really come together with our allies. Uh, to to assure the China's plan by the rules. This happens to be 1/100 anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party. On they've bought over 800 million people from abject poverty to the middle class on that has an impact one. What's happening to us here in Michigan in America, So I I hope that we can build a better relationship with China but wants to keep our national interests at the forefront. What we have to bear in mind is they are a different people with a different culture, different philosophy, different way of doing what they do compared to us In the example I gave yesterday that you probably didn't hear early on. Was of Mr Mas, the founder of whether said Alibaba, and he's a billionaire, and he he made the comment that they need to Kind of fix or update or change the way they look at business and some other things, and he disappeared after doing that. Hasn't been seen since October. And it's not the first time that anyone who shows any disagreement with the Chinese government their fate is generally not very good. Yeah, that there's questions about whether he's keeping a low profile for is what they say. In China. He's been taken in for tea, which is usually lose both having having tea with the Chinese Communist Party. But clearly there's a number of challenges we face with China. China, you know, had a century humiliation from 18 49 to 1949 the last 40 years they've come on, like gangbusters on dare feeling their oats today and so navigating this relationship with China is gonna impact the people of China the people of the United States, So that matter All of humanity, So we need smart strategic leadership. We also need part of you rather than just talking about what we're gonna do, uh, to thwart China's rise. Is to really talk about how we invest in the people of America. When we invest in education research development technology, we can out compete anybody around the world and so investing in the American people needs to be part of our strategy. To assure that China's rise doesn't come on America's demise. Absolutely correct. You've said it all along on, but that's something we do have to remember. What happens in China does not stay in China. We doubt know.
