"That eventually Novak passes Rafa. Just because physically he looks like he has another two years in it, you know, of health and life. Yeah, you know what I mean? I agree. Even with even with this year, this impact, I still think he ends up being the all time leader. Because this magically he just still looks like he has three or four years now. You know what, you bring up a great point. I'm sure in his inner circle that is a voice and what you're voicing right now is we're going to play the long game. We're going to play the long game. I applaud Novak for standing on his principle. What he feels is right. I'm just thinking it's a shame for tennis. Like even if like Novak were going to go and beat hubie at the open, that's okay. He's one in the world. He's like you said he's he should be there. Like let us give us a chance to game plan against probably like you said going to end up being the all time all time greatest player that ever played. So that's just kind of my holistic view of it. I hope he can play. I hope things change where you can play. Yeah. Well, Craig, this has been, you've been generous with your time. We know you got a pack and get ready to go to D.C.. These season interesting tournament because it's quaint, right? Great city. Great placement on the schedule. Great nightlife, great restaurants, and they always get good guys. What's your feeling on D.C.? To me, that's like the hidden gem when they have the women's back this year. When they know, when the women's was there, that was a place I always like to go. And Mark is great. What do you think about D.C.? It's a very intimate setting. And it's a big tournament, but it's got a kind of a laid back feel about it. It's a great, like you said, very historical city, obviously. Lots of good food. Good news is I don't have to drive because I get lost there all the time when I'm driving. But it's a stop that I went there often with when coaching the boys. Hubie played Olympics last year, so we missed it. My daughter's birthday, who's going to be there. It's that week. So there's a lot of personal things for me. I do remember that moment with John. That was in D.C. so just a lot of good memories, the staff that works there is very fun and easygoing and polite. The only thing you got to Dodge there is you know is The Rain. If we have good weather, it's outstanding with The Rain, we can have matches finished two, three in the morning, which is no fault of theirs. So we have good weather. It's unbelievable tournament. Unbelievable stop. Humid as hell. You get a lot of humidity. You come to boomers at night. Last question. So I've got a daughter 17. I got boy that's 5 and a boy that's 7. And I always ask Nick to be honest question Rick Macy, do your kids play. My kids do play.

"Win the auction. And while traditional corporate structures are battle tested, daos are a new type of entity that can find themselves in uncharted regulatory waters. To help solve some of these issues, states like Wyoming are putting laws on the books that recognize doubts. And we actually use one of these laws to buy our first piece of land at Citadel. That's why it's in my own way. Once we work out the kinks, dows have the potential to increase economic opportunity and allow more people to share in the upsides of ownership. Things like real estate, sports teams, fine art. These are things that would typically be owned by a single high net worth individual. That today, dows are buying and democratizing. Imagine if the next social network or ride hailing app were a doubt. And each time you posted valuable content or put in late night's driving, you got little pieces of ownership in that platform. And since ownership means voting rights and doubts, you can use your new voting power to propose changes to the platform if you think that there's a fairer or better way to do things. Agriculture enabled us to live in cities. The Internet let us share information globally. And today, dows, let us work together, trust each other and coordinate in a fairer way on larger scale problems than ever before. And maybe a Dao can even build the next great city. Thank you.

"Easy. You need to survey terrain, get permission from a state by land, convince people to move there. And until Elon Musk gets us to Mars. Land is a finite resource. And the good spots are probably all taken. But what if we could start smaller? Like really small. And just post on Twitter. That's what I did because it allowed me to find people all over the world willing to help me figure it out. My new Internet friends and I started a group chat, pooled cryptocurrency, research locations, and three months later, we bought 40 acres of land near Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Now, we had a piece of land, a pool of money, and a lot of decisions to make collectively. That's why we decided to start a Dao. Or a decentralized autonomous organization called city Dow. A Dow is an Internet native, blockchain governed, collectively owned organization working towards a shared mission. Most downs, full cryptocurrency in a treasury, where members vote on how it's used. In a traditional company, a CEO works with executives to set the direction, the budget, and hands priorities down the chart to be implemented. In a Dow, members act as peers, contributing capital, proposing and working on projects and making decisions as a group. Top down management is replaced by blockchain based rules, encoded in smart contracts. For example, funding a project if a proposal passes. If a traditional company succeeds, most of the wealth will accrue to a few founders, some early employees and investors who are generally already higher net worth. A Dow is a sort of crypto co op, giving a wider group of people the opportunity to own a piece, participate in management and share in the potential upside. City down, grew out of my frustrations, dealing with Citi bureaucracy and red tape while building a startup that helps cities better utilize their empty parking lots. It took us over three months to get a permit just to sell parking in San Francisco, and it was an archaic, bureaucratic nightmare. Things like putting a parking lot to higher and better use, which my urbanists self really wants to do, like build a food truck park, logistics hub, maybe even new housing, a farmer's market. These things are also really tedious, can take months, years, or even just be illegal due to zoning laws. Citadel was among the first owls brave enough to buy land. And speaking of bureaucracy, it took us over a month to do so under the current system. We had to find an agent, coordinate tours, make offers, wait for counter offers, put down a deposit for an LLC, fill out paperwork. At city town, we imagine an on chain city, where things like permitting budgets, laws, deeds, and records, they're all just transparent on a blockchain and smart contracts can speed up the transactions and reduce bureaucracy. Let me give you an example. Things that used to take weeks, like buying or selling land, or taking a loan out against your property. That could happen in seconds through a smart contract. Dallas are financial flash mobs. Often organizing seemingly overnight in pursuit of an idea. They usually start out as a few people who have a big vision, but realize it will take a large collective effort to get it done. So they usually start the community in a group chat server, the most common is called Discord. We use Discord for weekly community calls, where people can share ideas and debate proposals. In the server, channels are set up around teams and projects. Instead of a formal boss, each team has an elected facilitator who holds regular meetings. People can contribute to the Dow full time part time. One of the most common ways is through bounties, where you hop in and out of the Dow, taking on small tasks and contributing where you can. Most dowels raise some initial funding by selling a governance token that gives holders voting rights over Dao activities. You can either buy these tokens on the open market using a cryptocurrency like Ethereum or you can earn them by contributing to the Dow. For example, things like designing a logo researching or writing some code. A city down, we raised over $6 million from 5000 people through our governance token called citizenship. Citizens get to vote in things like where our next piece of land will be located. Daos have been called group chats with a bank account. And I know what you're thinking. Scott, sharing a bank account with my significant other is already hard enough. Now you're telling me I have to share one with 5000 people on the Internet. Well, it's not that bad. Blockchain helps fix this. So funds live in a public blockchain treasury where anyone can audit income and spending. And any time spending our money transfers are involved, the Dow approves it through a proposal. Typically written by a Dow member, a proposal starts as an idea that gets debated and is put to a vote of the token holders. For example, one of the first proposals at city Dow was, of course, which piece of land by. The Dow debated must have nice to haves, and Dow contributors combed through Wyoming, land listings. And narrowed it down to the top three, outlining the pros and cons of each and presenting the final proposal to the Dow for a vote. We voted to acquire parcel zero near Cody Wyoming. Chosen for being close to an airport, having an onsite well for water access, and of course, the most important criterion of all. Being here, Kanye West. Okay, okay, that wasn't really in the criteria, but it just so happens our piece of land in Wyoming is not far from Kanye's own Cody ranch. The next steps at city Dow are things like voting on what gets built on the land and who gets to use it when. Some other some other proposals floating around are things like buying a piece of land in Amazon for conservation or building out a network of Dow owned spaces. Where citizens can visit at any time, a decentralized city, perhaps. Today, we're seeing Dallas do all kinds of really interesting things together. They're building products, they're investing in startups, they're buying art and assets, they're funding research and raising money. Let's take a look at some examples. Constitution now raised over $47 million. In 7 days, an attempt to buy an original U.S. Constitution copy. It usually takes longer than 7 days, just to set up a company and open a bank account. Krause house is buying an NBA team, and link style, a golf course. Down members will likely get to participate in key things, like who's coaching the team, or where the golf course gets built. Pleaser Dao collects art and digital assets like NFTs. They recently purchased the only copy in existence of an unreleased Wu Tang clan album and Dow members are now the only people in the world who can legally listen to it. Vector Dao is a collective of designers, shaking up the agency model where Dow members get ownership in each project they work on. Endows like metacarpal and seed club, members review submissions from promising startups and projects and decide on which ones to fund. Vita Dao is funding research and more recently, Ukraine now raised over $6 million to donate towards the Ukrainian defense effort. It's still early for daos. And they certainly aren't for everything. They require a level of consensus building, and might move slower than a company who has a boss who can just call the shots. After all, constitution now was outbid at Sotheby's auction house. By the CEO of Citadel. And some say the transparency and decentralization made it hard for the Dao to coordinate and

How the Left Is Destroying Chicago With Steve Moore

"With us right now is a great American. I've known him for quite some time. Steve Moore, Steve, welcome to the program. Hey Charlie, thanks so much for having me. Great to be with you. And you are a great American. So it's a pleasure to be on your show. Thank you. We've known each other for a while and both from Chicago and unfortunately that whole state has been largely destroyed. So you have this great you see that Ken Griffin moved out of Chicago. There's a great article about him. I know this isn't the subject of our conversation, but it's really important. It showed that he is given hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars to the museums, the orchestra, to food banks. He's one of the most philanthropic guys and he's, I don't think anybody in the history of Illinois has given more to the civic institutions of Chicago and he finally had to leave because of the high taxes and the high crime rate in the city of Chicago. And it just shows what happens when liberals ruin a place because all these institutions like how are we going to replace Ken Griffin's money? That's a good question. Maybe you shouldn't have chased him out of the state. And it was you're exactly right. So ran a company called Citadel and started it right there in downtown Chicago, enormously successful. You could point to so many of the beauty of Chicago because of his generosity and philanthropy. And you actually look at why he left in the report, there were three Citadel employees that were mugged on the way to work, Steve. I mean, you and I grew up in Chicago. I mean, this is river north. This is not, you know, near comiskey or U.S. cellular, right? This is the heart of Chicago where people are being mugged at 8 or 9 in the morning or at 5 or 6 at night. Actually, I know you're not here to talk about it but Steve, it's really quick on the Chicago thing. I mean, it's just tragic Boeing is now left. Caterpillars. Caterpillars gone Citadel is gone. And you're right. And they actually had to shut down for several weeks the theater district in Chicago because it wasn't safe for people to go to theater. My point is that, you know, and this is happening now in New York City. It's happening in San Francisco. It's happening in Los Angeles. Los Angeles are great cities are being destroyed by wokeism and this big government

"You talk about a moment that will go down in the history that it will be one of the pivotal moments for the club that they can think wow, look what we did our first trophy, MLS cup at home on our soil on our pitch in our city for our fans for the culture. As it just continues to grow, everyone in that city has just gravitated towards the timbers. It's always the talk of the town. I remember going there and seeing scarves in every restaurant, seeing photos of timber's gear. And I'm thinking, this city has really taken to the club. They're all about it. For me, it was the first time I saw a city just give nothing but love to Portland. The tumor's like, they are number one to us. They are everything. And that was kind of something cool to see just as a fan of the sport in this country to say, hey, this can work. This can be the number one sport. This can be something where everyone gets together on in the morning of a game day and goes to the bars or and then you're bored into it. You don't have a choice. It's like, hey, you know, I was born in this area near Kansas City, so I'm a chiefs fan or whatever it is. It's like, hey, you're born in this area. You're a timbers fan. That's what that's what you raised as. It felt to me as close as you got to like a real authentic European club. That's what it felt like to me going there. Everybody was all about it. The fans even had timbers tattoos. That brought me back to Stockholm where I saw that for the first time. So I was all about the fan culture in Portland to be honest. Great city. Great restaurants, but wonderful French toast. Wonderful French one. More importantly, the supporters they pumped me up and when you played there, you felt it. Can I say something and might be controversial, but I think a win here turns them into a dynasty. Three trophies in 6 years with controversy. I'll tell you that. With the core of technically 7. Larry. Does it change your math at 7? Because it's technically 7, 15, 16, 17, 18, 1920, 21, that's 7 seasons. Wow, this has been just saying. I just want a 160 pounds. When I see a list in front of me, I am taking that chance, man. I'm hitting the guy. Fair. Three trophies in 7 years, four finals, which I think is key to that. It's not 2015 and 21. It's to go to the final in the middle to win MLS is back in the middle to go to a open cup semifinal. In my mind that I understand they're different coaching staffs and there are different pieces across these teams in my mind and obviously char and valera the linchpin. I've made this argument about the San Antonio spurs a million times as well. And I've normally get shouted down. I think that this team becomes a dynasty if they win it..

Why Are Schools Pushing to Defund Police?

"Students are coming university demanded last summer that the police beat the funded. Reading from the great city journal, even abolished. Now that students are getting killed their demanding an increased police presence. Where did they just do this? Oh yes, Pomona. The Pomona public schools. The unified school district. They dropped their police force, or they cut the police force I don't remember exactly. Then there was an increase in violence, and now they're reintroducing police. Why is any member of the Pomona unified school district board allowed to remain in power? Why? You know why? Because people don't fight. If you're in Pomona, California, you should demand that if these people have the slightest character, any character whatsoever, any decency they would resign. Any one who called for the funding the police should resign. They directly caused people to die. Not as many people as cause to die as The New York Times and the CDC for and the governors who banned hydroxychloroquine zinc and Ivermectin. They are responsible for. Probably upwards of a 100,000 deaths. However, being on the left means never having to say you're sorry. And who's going to call them out on it? Is The New York Times going into announce one day? We lied to you about Ivermectin. Of course not. The subject will be dropped.

How many people got shot. It turned out to be jost fifty-six shot and nine killed in the sad part. Eric was it. I realize that was a good weekend for chicago. The duality of chicago is that brilliant minds have always lived there that most people are warm open hearted generous spark capable and accomplished. Our universities are great. Our architecture is dramatic. The neighborhoods are great. The culture is fantastic. And yet and yet it's become an unlivable Greatly miss governed place so ads.

You see two things of you that stretches all the way to the east bay and one very big cross. The cross is an imposing sight. It stands at one hundred three feet tall and ten feet wide at the base made of concrete it stands in stark contrast to blue sky and the eucalyptus grove that surrounds it to learn more about how it got here. I went to mount davidson historian. I- jackie proctor. Jackie says the crosses origin story goes back almost a hundred years to nineteen twenty-three two time when the area was a forest a guy named james decatur who is a employee of the western union telegraph company and with the ymca hikes through that forest and comes to the top and he sees this incredible view of downtown and he is just overwhelmed.

The economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic on Seattle

"Cast your mind back. I remember talking with you soon after the pandemic started. And you were describing looking out of your window and seeing hardly anybody on the street where what. He's seeing right now today. Well we have more activity than that there. There are some office. Workers are back that are back of course essential workers. There are things that are open today that we're not open a month ago. Museums like the seattle art museum and wing luke The pike place market has been just a great bright spot through all of this. They've never closed. They've had to adjust plenty. So that's a note of activity and usually it's a lot of tourists there. It's mostly locals that are coming from other neighborhoods in seattle downtown. So there's activity downtown. But we sure want more genders more activity but still i mean. The pandemic did take a major toll on downtown businesses. Can you give us a nutshell. Just what happened over the last year. Yes we all know. Downtowns are all about bringing people together and in a pandemic to stay apart for good reason so this pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on urban areas in our country and downtown seattle. Certainly and so. We've had one hundred sixty small businesses that have permanently closer restaurants and retailers office. Occupancy has been below twenty percent over the last couple of months of folks who are showing up at least a few days in their office during the week. Hotel occupancy is still hovering at twenty percent or below in some weeks and our major venues arts culture performance live music venues have have been shuttered for the most part throughout this period so this has been devastating economically to our downtown into downtown's across the country because when you're all about bringing people together a pandemic has significant impact on on how you function and that's what we've seen john. We are still dealing with this pandemic. we haven't turned a corner quite yet but it does seem that most adults who want a vaccine will be able to get one in the next few months. What could that mean for. The future of downtown really is a game changer and we. We have such a clear line of sight on the pace of vaccinations and win. A majority of adults in our community are going to be vaccinated because of the recent approval of the johnson and johnson vaccine. So it's going to allow office workers to return at some level here Early in the summer late spring. We're talking to employers and companies that are that are making those plans now and it's going allow for leisure travel to resume at higher levels throughout our country in seattle can compete really well for the domestic leisure travel business which we believe is going to be sort of the first type travel to return likely before business travel and likely before international travel. People are dying to get out. We want him to come to seattle so office. Workers in leisure travelers and the seattle. That maybe hasn't been downtown in the last year. We want to invite them back. There's plenty of that is open today and more to come. So that's where we're focused. Some folks are speculating. That this pandemic has forever changed. The nature of work and that many employees may simply work from home indefinitely which could mean way fewer people shopping and dining downtown. Are you worried about that potential shift. I do believe the office and work does get recalibrated but the office isn't going away by any means but it mean that some folks might work from home owners days a week. That's generally what the research in surveys. Both in our own community around the country are saying so. The office in the downtown still has an important role to play. When it comes to work and collaboration in shaping a company an organization's culture i do think it gets a re recalibrated doubt. So recalibrate it. If you've got fewer workers around who else possibly could be drawn down to the core to to kind of make up for the for the flow of energy that used to be there. We'll we're investing still record levels in in housing in downtown so more than seven thousand. Units of housing are currently under construction. Were connecting our city to downtown in ways that are going to help people to take a train from northgate in just a few months. That comes every couple of minutes right into downtown. So there's there's new ways to get downtown. We're significantly in housing. And then we're investing in generational infrastructure projects like the waterfront park and a great new arena seattle center. So there's going to be new things to see inexperienced downtown that weren't here prior to this pandemic and there's going to be lots of new businesses that come in into spaces that were vacated by businesses that had to close through this pandemic so this plenty to look forward to new investments new experiences that we're not here prior to this pandemic and we want to celebrate those in addition to everybody that made it through this pandemic and that's able to reopen. Is there a scenario where you might see that. The downtown doesn't recover. And what would that look like. And what would that mean. There's a lot at risk here. And i don't think we can take anything for granted and every great city has a great downtown. I haven't been to a great city without a thriving core in as a as a city here in seattle in a community. We we've made a big bet on a healthy thriving downtown. We've passed many levies to invest in families and education universal pre-k low income housing and a great park system that is betting on a healthy economically. Vital downtown so we have a lot at stake on what happens on these three square miles of land for the entire city and really the entire region. So we've got to get this writing. We can take nothing for granted.

Sorry that they could not help themselves but still willing to wait. I have sometimes thought that cattle are better provided for or at least as well but from an artistic natural point of view. The scene has always fascinated me. Is it morning. The sun's markle's on the waters. The wind blows free goals. We al and turn and squeal white flecks above the water swarms of vehicles gather with their loads. life seems to move at a smart clip. Is it noon. A large group of men is to be seen idling in the sun. Blue jackets swore they phased colorful against the dark background of the peers. is it night the lanterns. Swing and there is darkness overhead and the stars. I sometimes think no human being ever lived. Who caught more significantly. More sweetly the beauty of the waterfront.

Silver and gold in the evening light comes a great vessel. Her sides standout blackley her masts and funnels tinged with an evening glow of gold burn and shimmer against a magnificent a radian sky where red and gold clouds hang in broken patches she floats exquisitely penciled and colored the fighting temir rare.

"At that time even in eighteen ninety four that very different and most radically foreign fluxes known as the east side already stretched from chatham square and even farther south brooklyn bridge north to fourteenth street for want of bridges and subways. The city was not as yet so far flung but for that reason more concentrated and almost as congested yet. Before i was fifteen years in the city all of the additional bridges other than brooklyn bridge. Which was here. When i came in. And which so completely served to change new york from the thing it was then to what it is now were already in place manhattan williamsburg queensboro bridges and the subway had been built at least in part but then if anything the great island is i have said was even more compact very and foreign groups and one had only to wander casually and not at any great length to come upon the irish in the lower east and west sides the syrians in washington street.

"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.

On, you know, probably realized that you know you gotta You gotta gotta tougher road ahead just because we haven't you were in winning this year. But, you know, I think any good team is gonna have to continue to bring in Common players, and I think that will be the primary role is to help us bring great players here. Help us attract great free ages and you help us get back to the top. You know, I don't think you get big and really go on. You know, just our past records. Just say you know we had this record or we had that record. You know, you gotta look at it and say, you know what's the potential of this team? And do I believe that this team could get there? And, uh, I'm imagining that they would hire someone who didn't believe that they could get us to the next level there. So, um, I think I think it's very appealing job mean. Uh, even for you know, young up and coming guys too. You know, there are quite a few rows in the Kind of in the running forward. Um, too. You have an opportunity to kind of make a name for themselves here with the Broncos. A team with a great winning tradition. Great City. Great fans the whole nine yards.

I'm just I'm just a slide that paper slowly across the table and staring directly in the eyes and that's it. We're just we're gonna win. That's what that's what I need to do is just gonna win. Yeah. What's your plan from? We're just gonna win. Honestly, I feel like we're almost out of a job now like that, very this very moment, because that's really what else the other analysis can we add? You just have to find a way to win. That's it and Steve sort of unlocked the door to everything right now. The theory of a unified theory is resolved. All right? Yeah, man. Oh, we're not. We're being ridiculous. We're not. We're not giving a hard time were jealous. Where money? Really? Yeah, I wish I would just simply said I should have thought of it. Like what?

It's just that it was that kind of like how Davis a slogan. Just win, Baby. Yeah. Just remember. Yeah. Yeah, but what do you guys think is appealing about the job? I think you got a lot of young talent. I think the Broncos aren't short handed on draft picks. I think the cap space is actually not bad at all In terms of those kinds of things. I think the Broncos are pretty set up. I think the thing is you need to find and figure out the quarterback situation. You need to either know the true lack is the guy and you're gonna wait for him. Tonto develop into that or you're gonna have to have a contingency for that and find the guy and I think that's really the key to I think that's it.

Zealous and Compassionate Evangelism (Jonah 4:10-11)

"Jona chapter four versus ten eleven. And the lord said you pity the plant for which you did not labor nor did you make it grow which came into being a night and perished in a night and should not i pity niniveh that great city in which there are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who do not know their right hand from their left and also much cattle and thus ends the book of jona with the profit exceedingly displeased. An angry that god had brought salvation to niniveh. The god had saved benefit from the wrath. They deserved and the prophet. Jonah is upset goes out of the city. Sits down there under the shade and god appoints this plant to come up over jona to save him from discomfort in the sun and jonah was exceedingly. Glad about the plant. But then when god appointed a worm to attack the plants withered. Joan was so upset. And god's says in verses we just read you pity the plant a plant. Should i not pity. Niniveh people hundreds of thousands of people who have created a my image whom i love and i desire to save like. There's so much temptation at this point just to be very critical of jona and obviously jonah was in the wrong here but let's look at our own lives i. How often are you an. I consumed with passionate about things in this world that ultimately don't matter i we value plants and possessions and sports and entertainment and petty comforts in trivial concerns. And we can get so worked up over these things so passionate about these things even embroiled in these things that we miss individuals right around us people that we interact with on a daily basis. Who are on a road that leads to an eternal hell. Oh god we pray. Help us to realize to remember what matters most god reprieve. You'd forgive us for our focus on so many different comforts and cares and concerns in this world that we are not more passionate about seoul's being saved not just experience your life and your love in this world but in all of eternity god help us depite what you pity to have compassion like your compassion to love like you love god. We pray. You'd help us too long for what you long for you. Desire all people to know your grace your salvation. We think about seven plus billion people in the world all created in your image your likeness created to know you and created to enjoy you. Who turned from you all seven. Plus billion of us have turned from you and you love them so loved the world that you gave your one and only son that whoever among the seven billion believes in jesus will not perish paternal live gunnery. Praise you for your love for us. We praise you for somebody caring enough about us to share the gospel with us. We praise you for the eternal life we have in you. We praise you for your pity and your compassion and your love for us. So god reprinted helpless his show that for other people around us cowdery pray that ours eel to lead people to to faith in jesus to internal life and you would far outweigh our zeal for anything else. In this world. God that we would be emotional about passionate about not plans and possessions and sports and entertainment and petty comforts and trivial concerns but that we would be passionate about people and their souls for all of eternity. God we we pray that you would keep us from living like we see joan in this last chapter. God help us to be a clear reflection of your love for the people around us people who are desperately in need of your grace. We pray that you would help us to be more concerned about their salvation. Then we are about new business ventures new gadgets nicer things and sports teams and whatever else this world offers us help us we pray god in jesus name

"Anna during his a very busy time to be the mayor of Boston but he is taking time out for us anyway in our monthly Mondays with Mayor Marty Walsh. So welcoming back to the show Boston Mayor Marty Walsh Hello. Thank you very much great to be with you today. Great to have you, I don't WanNa paint this picture mayor Walsh because I was thinking about your last ten days or so a ballot box set on fire daily state. Corona virus cases about a thousand people in person learning shut down the schools the chair, the Boston School Committee resigns even as they make historic move to suspend the entrance exam, the exam schools state lifts the Eviction Moratorium three major holidays ahead it is a massive task to be the mayor of Boston right now how are you doing? We have little election week from Tuesday. Oh yeah that. It's Boston's a great city and I love being there. Obviously every day there's new challenges that are in front of, US diesel jobs, very extraordinary times that will. It's important for all of us understand that you know we will get to all of these things You know it's complicated. I was saying the other day my chief staff that you know there just doesn't seem to be any reprieve at all You know the other night school committee meeting there was historic vote lots of conversation lots of emotion around in the to end the way it was unfortunate. But but you know hopefully after next Tuesday you know you know corona virus and talk has been country for everyone. So after next Tuesday, we'll see what happens but I'm hoping for a certain outcome and that election I think a lot of people who are listening to this radio show hoping for the same outcome I I'm hoping for and you know in this country a lot of. And and right now we have to get through it and You didn't mention but the racial unrest as well. The stomach racism all of that stuff is front and center, and it's important for us to continue to move forward one of the other to get to this time. So you just talked about the election. Let's stay there for a minute. police have made an arrest in the case of the ballots that were set on fire and dropbox and Copley. Square yesterday are you concerned about more cases every election related violence or tampering or vandalism, and how are you preparing the city for that? But. You know I'm hoping that we don't have you violence at. A lot of it's going to be What happens in the election I think that you know you have one candidate in the president. Has undertone of creating. Okaying violence, it's not going to be tolerated here in the city of Boston on the police department has. Is, an has increased patrols in areas where election ballot boxes are located but also preparing for Election Day to make sure that we have I don't think it's going to happen here border intimidatation I. Don't think we'll sit here in Boston but you never know around the country I. Think you'll see different pieces of. What as far as the ballot box fan I wanNA. Thank the Boston Police Department for this action and our alliance. Partners and members of the community played a role to arrest suspects. In copy? Square. For the ballot box incident this was an isolated incident and so we're going to be making sure that we've asked the district attorney to investigate it to its fullest extent. A number one priority certainly making sure that the integrity of the elections are upheld and I wanNA thank all the partners and I think as we continue to before I do not feel I think that hopefully this is an isolated incident and I think it might be but we are going to continue. We have the boxes monitored under surveillance cameras and we're going to be increasing our security. So people feel free to devote and we want everyone to vote. So you know if you if you haven't early vote out and you want to use these boxes in the primary had a couple of places we have seventeen right now in in the final. So we want you to use box. Want you to make sure that you know you do you early vote. Get get all that if you can because the more people vote now on the less lines will have on election day. We talked a minute ago about some of these challenges with the corona virus. The city now has an average positive test rate above six percent according to the city's latest analysis of neighborhood testing data I wanted to ask you. So we've been hearing public health officials for awhile anticipate some kind of surge in the fall and I wondered are the numbers that we're actually seeing now in line with what you expected for this time of year in whatever modeling or planning might have done or or are these surges the surge bigger than you thought we'd be in right now how are you looking it and thinking about it? I don't think categorizes as a surge yet it's definitely increased We're seeing numbers every every week. Now the new numbers as of today from yesterday, and over the weekend two, hundred and seventy three new cases which a lot probably the highest of seeing one day. Actually might be two days in number by the seeing or in hundred something range of the day. Now, for the last couple of days that's the highest we've seen since around June So certainly you know I probably already is making residents are safe and how big The experts have said that we would see a potentially an uptick in the month of October November and December and they also has mentioned that it isn't coming upon all of us that we could actually keep those numbers down by wearing masks and making sure that we do everything we can social distancing avoiding black gatherings I'm also encouraging people to things tonight today to get tested I think it's really important having accurate number of tests you're in the city of Boston. So we get an accurate account with the number really right now six point two percent. In the second piece is down suggesting the people to get your flu shot. Because as we head into this month of September October November area that you know the people are GonNa, get any the colds flu. It'll be confusing want to try and cut down on learn through visits if at all possible.

It's the Little Things

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

How Many Continents Are There?

"Two plus two equals four the world's Brown. There are seven continents on earth. But that last one isn't quite so cut and dried here. In the United States students learned that there are seven continents North, America. South America Europe Asia. Africa, Australia and Arctic. But that's hardly the last word on the matter and much of Europe students learn that there are six continents Africa. America Antarctica Asia Australia slash. And Europe. There's a five continent model which lists Africa. Europe Asia America and Oceana Slash Australia, and that's by the way why there are five rings on the Olympic, flag. And, some experts think that four is the way to go using as their criteria landmasses. Separated by water rather than manmade So Afro Eurasia America and Arca and. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, some people said there were just too. It's the old including Europe Africa and Asia and the new encompassing north and South America. So what really makes a continent continent? We spoke by email with Dan Montello. A geography professor at the University of California Santa Barbara he said nothing really determines a continent except historical convention, a bit of an overstatement, but mostly valid a certain factors make a landmass more or less likely to be called a continent at various times in history by various people, but nothing can be said to determine continent tally, a completely principled, non arbitrary way. Take for example, the vast country of Russia six point, six million square miles or seventeen million square kilometers a why has often been counted as part of Europe, rather than Asia Montello explained. The Euro Mountains are taken to separate Asia and Europe. But only because Russians wanted their great city of Moscow to be European, so the euros were a convenient marker for that arbitrary decision. Continents are mostly spatially contiguous collections of landmasses larger than countries, but smaller than hemispheres of course cotton's do not necessarily fit entirely within single earth hemispheres, and thus cannot be defined by ranges of latitude or longitude. Okay, so how about plate tectonics if certain landmasses are constrained to one of those massive shifting hulks? Can we safely call it? A continent Montello Says No. Quote Plate tectonics has nothing to do with it historically, and it certainly could not provide a principal basis for continents now. Nearly every continent includes parts of multiple plates. The. Same goes for climate after all continents contain multiple climates as evidenced by Alaska's Arctic. Chill compared with Florida's humid heat. They're both part of North, America. Mountain ranges and coastlines are useless to as our culture and politics. Montella said neither ethnicity race culture nor politics has ever defined continents except by conventional theories that were largely mythical such as old and fallacious ideas about correspondences between races and continents. Politically Hawaii is part of the US but is in Oceania rather than north. America Greenland is controlled by Denmark for now, but is considered part of the North American continent. So really it boils down to whom and when you ask Montello, said no one can say as a matter of principle fact, how many cotton's there are because the decisions are largely based on convention and convention that goes in and out of fashion over time, and is still debated today. He concedes these days. Many geographers would opt for a list of

Notre Dame Fire; Pilgrim Trails

"Let's start today's show remembering the impact of the fire. That damaged Notre Dame cathedral in Paris one year ago with thirteen million visitors a year. The medieval masterpiece had attracting more visitors than Saint Peter's Basilica Elaine Sciolino correspondent in Paris since two thousand and two and she describes how the river that surrounds Notre Dom came to the rescue in her book. The Sam the river that made Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Where were you and I know how much you love Paris? What was it like when you heard about the fire at the Notre Dame on April fifteen twenty nineteen? I live in Paris Rick and I happened to have been in New York at the time and I was in an office building and suddenly looked at a TV screen and there was CNN with the Notre. Dom Inflames I mean my city by cathedral and I was so my first questions were did anyone die and was it terrorism and once it was just established that it was a terrible accident and no one died. I was relieved because I was confident. Even at that very moment that it would be rebuilt. Maybe different but it would survive. It had to yeah now you were probably celebrating the fact that you've got this wonderful book. The send the river that made Paris just coming out in actuality in a Lotta ways. It was the send that enabled the firefighters to save the Cathedral. Well I got a phone call from my husband who was watching all of this on French TV in Paris and he said Lane. You're not gonNA believe this but I'm watching television and there is a boat that seems to be pumping water up to the firefighters on the land into the Cathedral. And I knew at that moment I had to write another chapter about the Senate and its role in helping to put out the fire at Notre Dumb. Thank God they had access to all that water when you think of the structure of a Gothic Cathedral. A lot of people don't realize it but there's huge oak beams there's a whole structure between the ceiling and the roof and it's the network of Oak Beams. The roof would be a lead covered roof. Eight hundred years old. I've seen in museums gargoyles with molten lead spewing out their mouth you know cooling and freezing their when you've had a fire like this. I mean it's just a nightmare when I've got the cathedral bursts into flames. I agree one hundred percent with you. It was an absolute nightmare and it affected people in very strange ways being people who had no real religious connection with Notre Dom we're weeping in the streets and people around the world were mourning the fact that this edifice that too many represents the heart and soul of Paris was on the verge of destruction. No I understand that the nineteenth century spire which in your chapter you you say has five hundred tons of Oak. Two hundred and fifty tons of lead fell three hundred feet crashing to the ground. It's amazing that the entire church didn't collapse A lot of people don't realize that stone gets compromised in heat and giant stone. Buildings can fall down because of a fire with the firefighters who belonged to the French military. They're not part of the city of Paris Force went into action as if it was a military operation and the commander of the firefighters sent some of his team into the burning north tower risking their lives to try to cool down that tower. Which we still don't know one year later. Is it completely intact or does it need to be supported in some way? Now that must have been quite a dramatic decision because you can stand back and make sure nobody is endangers way and then the tower would have collapsed or you can send your firefighters in risking a situation like on nine eleven when the trade towers collapsed and all the firefighters inside would perish again. Thank goodness five. Hundred firefighters participated. They took the bold move they rushed in. They called the church and they say the north tower will general galet. Who is the commander of the firefighters spent time in Afghanistan and he had studied also the nine eleven tragedy in the United States? But he had to go to the president of France to get permission to send his firefighters in. Anybody told the president is if we don't do this. We're half an hour away from Notre Dom collapsing. That is amazing. You know we can more in the church. We can love the church but as hard get into the heart in the mind of Parisians. What does it mean to Paris? I mean it just seems like of course. You've got the zero point in front right. Everything is majored in France from the Notre Dame. Its place where they're kings have been coronated through the centuries in so many ways it's the cultural heart of the city even back before the advent of Christianity there was a temple. Can You Peter Right there? Can you talk a little bit about the Notre Dame as that heart and soul of the Great City of Paris? Notre Dame is on the field unless he tae which was where Paris was created. It's the very origin of Paris. Need sits there as not only a beautiful historical monument to museum but it sits there as the absolute essence of Paris So for French Catholics. It's a place of worship but for the rest of the French nation. It's really the origin of their capital city.

Packers total points will the Packers score more or less than twenty one and a half points gentleman more or less twenty one and a half I'm going under. that's that's right on the number I was looking and I would go over with that I think both teams are gonna score over that so I'm gonna go over the bears total points obviously than giving three so it's only three points more than that the bears total points twenty four and a half I'm going over yeah over well can't has and doubling that yeah cat scan what fifty plus now. the team to score first they think that the bears will score first the bears if you want to bet the bears to score first is minus one forty that means you have to bet on a hundred and forty dollars to win one hundred yeah in in the reasoning behind that is last year the bears were great in this spot nineties offenses script the fifteen the way that they will come out of games the bears almost always had a lead in the first quarter I love this back in the the the first quarter of games last year for the Chicago Bears I I think I would probably play what is does it say what the Packers if the Packers scored first where the odds Packers to score first plus one twenty that means if you bet one hundred dollars to one hundred twenty I probably still go bears yeah I would I would lay with the bear did Matt neki like to differ I remember when Lovie Smith was here he would always defer the ball because the defense was so good did Matt Nagy have a position on that last year did he deferred a take the ball I don't remember when it played a hand in hand with the idea if you score first which they did a lot last season and they went after the first quarter then you can allow your defense I kinda get after it so I think the idea of the bears offense being on the field first setting up the offense scoring points and then letting the defense come in with a lead I think is the formula that the bears would like to use. on the opposite end of the spectrum the last team to score the bears are minus one thirty the Packers are plus one ten to score last yeah I'm gonna say the Packers a get a garbage touchdown late or garbage field goal and they will be the last team to score yeah I like the value there even if you are someone that thinks his game is close the value on the Packer scoring last those either winning or making it close I I like what that is I would place the money there you both think the bears will score first so the first score the game will be a touchdown field goal or safety a field goal or safety is plus one forty a touchdown is minus one sixty. what's a safety it's the same thing is available plus one forty. really correct I guess safety should be like forty to one all right cap I'll I'll give.
