"Bills out of committee, griffey says his bill is not likely to get through. He is, however, calling on governor Jay inslee's office and DSHS to intervene. Carlene Johnson, northwest news radio. Now we've reached out to the governor's office and we are told the release of McNeil island defenders has been going on for years what is actually changed recently is that they're now being placed in every county so that no one particular county gets all. The Food and Drug Administration has new powers to recall dangerous cosmetics and personal hygiene products, those powers were granted as part of the most recent omnibus spending bill says senator patty Murray, Washington Democrat. It ensures that if people are getting hurt by products, whether that's hair falling out or getting a severe rash or something more serious like cancer, companies have to provide a contact on their products so people can report any issues. Companies are then required to report the incident to the FDA within 15 days. There was significant GOP opposition to the bill, but because the legislation covered so many other issues as well, the no votes could have been for any number of things. The Oregon state Court of Appeals has ruled local governments can not declare themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. The court said gun rights ordinances in Columbia county, Oregon, violate a law giving the state the power to regulate firearms, not cities and counties. According to gun owners of America, there are nearly 2000 local jurisdictions that have passed similar Second Amendment sanctuary laws, including almost every county in central and eastern Washington.

"Wouldn't wear that that way, but yes, I mean, I guess so with this one, my good friend hilarious for rejecting for 5.9 war. There we go. That is tied for the third highest among position players on this projection. So why was sitting here last night while everyone was, you know, preparing their reactions to trades and Kevin drew. We're watching The Godfather watching exercises. Literally anything other than being on paragraphs at 10 p.m. on February. And I said, how many murderers have been top three in war in this season? And of course, I'm sure you can already guess who the comps are. It's all out for a drink as a hand griffey junior. So there have been 5 instances of emergency finishing top three and more, which is where Julio's projected right now. In 2000 was first in 1996, griffey whispers and Alex Rodriguez was tied for second in 94 if he was third and then 93 griffey was second. Number one number one is 20.3. So 20.3% was more on so does walk rate last year. And again, sitting here in February, I see that. And I'm like, man, that is a really high walker. Do you think about it? 20% of your plate appearances you walked. And of course, because these ones so do he's done that before. So that was the third time that he has had a qualified season with a 20% walk rate or higher. That is already tied for the 5th most such season in MLB history. Ted Williams had 9.

"Been a die hard fan since he was a kid. I remember watching the 95 game when griffey rounded third with Edgar's double and niehaus calling it. I literally have goosebumps right the second thinking about it. In the early morning darkness, his revved up crew of 40 drivers mounted their 18 ton trucks and left the yard for him.

Let's go Mariners. Northwest news radio. Well, there will be no expansion of a homeless shelter in Soto, the plan had drawn a loud protest in the Chinatown international district. There's talk of a large rally to take place against it tomorrow. Now the King County executive Dow Constantine says that the existing 270 person shelter operated by the Salvation army will not be expanded it will continue to operate as is, money that would have been used for the expansion will instead be used on other projects aimed at providing shelter for those who have none. An engaged couple was arrested in downtown Seattle last night after using brass knuckles in a switchblade to assault a man, more on the story from northwest news radio's Greg Herschel's. At around 6 15, Seattle police officers working emphasis patrols around third and pine heard about a fight, and they found a man with multiple stab wounds on his head. Meanwhile, near westlake park, a couple flagged down another officer and said that they had just been pepper sprayed by the stabbing victim.

"I have a few signed baseballs, which I gave to my son Keith, who now works for the baseball network and was a real baseball fan, even as a little kid. So I've got signed baseballs from all the guys I just mentioned that a few others. But I didn't really go out of my way to get anything else. And I never really looked at it as having any other value except sentimental on never any commercial value. Yes, I talked to Doc emmerich and Doc would keep all of his boards when he would do a play by play. All of his notes. And I was curious, do you keep all of your scorecards or boards that you have for the games that you've done? Yeah, I keep them for a while. If it's still relevant two years, three years later, if there are notes on players that are still involved and then after that, I get rid of them except I keep the ones that are most significant. I keep the ones from like the 7th game of the World Series. So I kept the one from Stephen Strasburg's debut when he struck out 14 for the nationals and he was briefly sensation around baseball moments like that, Derek Jeter's last game at Yankee Stadium. Moments like that, I've kept the scorecards. Could the Dodgers be historically great? If they win Yeah, they want a 111 games this year. They're run differential with something like plus three 40. The Yankees led the American League and it was way behind that differential that the Dodgers had. And they've been such a good team, even though they only won the one world championship in 2020. They've been a world championship caliber team for so long. So if you take kind of this whole better part of a decade under Dave Roberts, if you look at it that way, they deserve consideration as an all time great team. I brought this up to a couple of guys who covered the game, see what your thought is. If you can have the career of Ken griffey junior or Albert Pujols. I'm kind of dodging it. You wouldn't want a baseball world without either one of them. Ken griffey junior became what he should have become. He was the one and only Ken griffey junior and Pujols was the one and only el ombre or the machine. Griffey was the greater all around player because he was a spectacular center Fielder. Pujols has the greater statistics as a hitter. They're both obvious first ballot Hall of Famers, griffey was near unanimous. That barrier has been broken now by Rivera getting all the votes and missing by only one. So Pujols might be unanimous in 5 years when he comes up. I guess if you are just talking about a kid's dreams, I think a kid would dream of playing center field like Willie Mays or like Ken griffey junior, more than he would dream of being a first baseman or a designated hitter, which is not a knock on pools.

"With 13 time MLB all star and Hall of Famer Ken griffey junior Now unfortunately I could not be a part of this interview And I'm going to do a little bit about how the sausage is made and why I was supposed to be part of it but this interview was taped on Tuesday And as we all know that's the exact same day when all of a sudden a gunman on a Brooklyn subway started shooting up the train and people injured thank God right now nobody has died but all of a sudden as a news guy it was all hands on deck and I was part of that because obviously I wanted to talk about Jackie Robinson day with Ken griffey junior so that's why I couldn't be part of that interview But Lindsey I just want to know how was it speaking with one of the best hitters of all time This really was a great interview It started off very slowly He was very measured in everything he was talking about sometimes I didn't know if he had finished his comments and Scarlett and I were ready to jump in with the next question and then he would continue And he really talked about a myriad of subjects which really were fascinating about him playing in homering in the same game with his dad back in 1990 The opportunities that he had in his dad had because of Jackie Robinson He'd be one of the people we know ever since his wife you could go back in time name four or 5 professional athletes you'd like to speak with Jackie Robinson is always at the top of my list One of the most important things since this weekend is the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking in to baseball breaking the color barrier How all 30 Major League Baseball teams came to all wear the number 42 on April 15th and right at the heart of it and the genesis of it was Ken griffey junior Jackie such a big part of our family's history as far as what he did was allowing us to go out there and play and have the freedom to go out there and play to make choices He didn't do what he did who's going to be the next Jackie Robinson We don't know or if it ever happened But thank God that he did it And you know I was able to go out there and play but I call commissioner ceiling and have them because I wear 42 and he said hey give me a minute I'm going to call you back And he called Rachel and then coming back the next day He said do you mind if everybody wears and I was like absolutely not The more the merrier in O 7 that's when it started and it's been that way ever since and it's unbelievable to see I look at it as something that I wanted to be selfish and do but it turned into something much greater than I anticipated Hey Ken this is Mike lynch up in Boston Loved it when you came to town with Seattle Your dad tortured us in the 75 World Series It's great to great to actually have a chance to talk to you When the labor negotiations in the lockout was going on it got pushed into the first week in February How much of a faculty do you think that if we don't settle this thing we're going to be locked out during Jack the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier do you think that at any push on both sides to get it done by so that players could be on the field by April 15th I think that helps because you definitely didn't want to go into the first celebration of the year in a lockout And I think both sides were motivated to get something done and thank God that they did So we don't have to talk about it and we're going to be playing baseball for quite a few years after this I try to stay out of labor and negotiations One of the things that I said is not being a player is that hey I just want to celebrate the guys that allowed me to go out there and play freely as I did And Jackie was a big part of it Growing up You know the conversations that dinner table of certain things that he went through that I couldn't imagine going through So those were some of the difficult conversations as a pre teen that you learn about what that man has gone through I liked what you said earlier about how without Jackie there you couldn't have played baseball How he paved the way for black players Looking at the stats now in the 1970s black baseball players made up about a 5th 20% of the MLB That number has now dropped to about 8% today The Mariners actually have the most black players on their team as of 2020 which was about ten players Why do you think this is Why do you think the number of black players of the proportion of black players is declining in MLB I think that you look at other sports the celebration being able to be unique where baseball if you're unique you're a problem And I think that has to go away I look at certain ballplayers because of how they play the game not because the color of their skin We have to get away from that Blackball players Latin ball players we like to celebrate and it's not that we are trying to show somebody up But it's just a celebration what we've done And I think the public has to understand that there is a difference between showing being enthusiastic and degrading your opponent We who have played the game we understand the difference We understand the magnitude of the situation when you can and can't do something You're down by 15 runs and you hit a home run and you walk it off that's not the time that you do something like that But if a game winner or something like that then that's fine We have to teach the next generation of ball players how to play the game So let me understand correctly the inability to express yourself on the field is preventing or keeping black players from rising in the ranks of MLB or even entering the sport No No I think you look at football you get drafted You're in the NFL You look at basketball you get drafted you're in the NBA You look at baseball you get drafted where do you go The minor leagues And baseball is an expensive sport Basketball is in the basketball football union football baseball you get travel ball you got to be seen you know high school baseball isn't really that popular more of your summer ball travel team but in football you play every Friday and somebody's going to come see you Basketball you have a couple of tournaments during the course of the year Somebody is going to be seen They'll be 300 coaches at a basketball tournament You're going to give a scholarship You look at scholarship problems when it is 11.7% for baseball That's something scholarship they offer but football and basketball are full rides So there's a number of factors that go on on why baseball isn't as popular But being able to express yourself and celebrate is in

I don't even know what they're coming out. You know, so if you could fix that and solve that and it's like, I'm ready and limited edition. How do you, how do you worry about the limited edition piece? Because that's such a big part of cards. So scarcity and trading cards is that right. A core part of what they're about. The interesting thing right now is there's so much more demand than supply and trading cards today. But that's how it has to stay. That's the point. And that's what we think about long-term. And that's what I'll tell you. I don't think, to be honest, the trading card companies never really thought that much about that. You know, they think about it in the near term. What's happening this year? What's happened in next year? I'm thinking about like 5 years from now, ten years ago, what's that car going to be worth in the secondary market? Because ultimately, that's an indication of, is this a good alternative investment for an investor to make? How do you control the secondary market? I think we have a lot of influence in the secondary market based on building great product and innovating products. And by the way, as we went out to get in the trading card business, plans became public last August. You know, so many people wrote to me and said, here are the things you should do to make the product better. And so we're always thinking about better product better marketing. What did they say? You always hear about how autographs are signed is obviously something I'm sure you know about. I stay away, I don't trust them. Yeah. You get that feedback all the time.

I guess they still are but even more so than about extra systems in participating in helping with huntings and even when edward say like these people need help and the local churches would say they didn't wanna be a part of it that gave ed in his mind the right to then go to the media and like he was like i'm famous like i'll get on tv. I'll bring the media to investigation. Like i'll really like pump. This thing up. So that way. The church has to pay attention to okay and you're like honoring them into. Yeah so he was like. I'm he would record everything he would do audio. He would bring cameras. He would record all footage in if he ever found any evidence He would bring the media with him and like talk about his experiences. There in how scary. It wasn't how people needed help and then the church was like okay. Fine we'll we'll bring an extra sizzle or we'll do an exercise. I'm so ed actually was quoted saying you would be shocked many catholic priests don't believe there's a double interesting so apparently his he was like i will give you proof that there is a devil and you have to do something about it. Because that's your job. Yeah a lot of times. The is still wouldn't wanna help after seeing the footage and that was when he would bring all the media with him and this is actually how in the smirl haunting he got one of the future. Popes to help on an investigation holy shit because it got all the way to the vatican there was all the way to all so also during the higher their fame..

"Twitter at murphy underscores sports sean. Great to have you on the show. Hey rub greatest. Thanks for me. They what we're gonna be talking about is a little college football league zero as well as looking ahead towards the nfl season but first off shawn you know how. I knew that i was going to like you. Buy your twitter background. Being none. Only than the man with the sweetest swing in the history of baseball ken griffey junior. So i'm curious. Why junior your twitter backgrounds. Well i mean he's the greatest baseball player of all time and he was growing up. I was baseball was one of my favorite sports living up here in canada. It's a little difficult at the time to kind of with the follow. Some of these teams but griffey captured. Everyone kind of back then back in the nineties. I was a kid. You know about ten years old at the time when he was breaking in it was just it was it was so great to watch him play and just everything about the mariners. I liked Followed them all the way through his career. And it's just that that was of my idol growing up so so it's only fitting that i use him as As my background as we speak just out of frame over my left corner left. Shoulder is a poster of ken. Griffey junior in the backswing. Because that's the best part of it is he's got that greatest full swing. But then there's that stove pose as if he's almost a statue and for me. That is quintessential ken griffey junior. Yeah just everything about him was just He was best and i still think he is. So yeah. I think. I'm not the only kid growing up in the nineties. Griffey griffey was we guy either griffey or jordan. What what over. My other shoulder is actually to michael jordan posters. So you pretty much nailed demographic in who i am so before we get to the football action sean. What i'm curious about is you've been a pro sports handicapper since two thousand in four and i always liked to dig in a little bit more into the mindset in the process in. What's that what that's like because sports. Betting has evolved immensely over the last seventeen years with legalization and a handful of states. Now and i'm curious if you can give us a little insight into sort of your journey and what's that like yell for me. Sports betting was always kind of a passion of mine even going back to in my junior high days as a as a teenager was kinda just something that Here in canada we had We had proline which we still have which is kind of parallel game. That's run by the the government lottery And back then you can go to the corner store you know. Get get a ticket with my case investigator dead by the tickets for you.

There's an apostrophe in there so it's possessive by his winning run juniors winning his winning run juniors your purchasing video game of his run of his run. Not your run. You don't get to have ones only ken griffey. Who gets to winning. You can't play as any other character. Terry deepest build it by shakur juiston. What field be doing your centerfield future. He's just running around like the vaz's cat you. He was that good now he was very good. I think it was also related to sonic the hedgehog in some fashion. I don't know did the name. Blue blur started in seattle. Or did you go history lesson courtesy of rather than someone said. You mean hedgehog. Ken griffey junior was trying to retire. Of course until he was like yeah. Of course it's not just it to happy poor king. He just wants to be known for what he is. I'm so this is a time. When there's i think. Video games were just starting to have major celebrities on the cover. Somebody not just starting to but like from like on all of the nba live or nba. Like thirty six or eight like there were. There were celebrities on the cover but it wasn't called like like michael jordan's nba live. You know i feel like there's always been is just how prevalent they work because there was always on the. I think it was john elway's quarterback elliot's always quarterback that's right. Yeah so that existed. But i don't think those types of gays whereas prevalent there's they became in the late nineties so madden was the big the first big one. I would say where the actual persons may not a team name with the press and not a football player. Touche was interesting. So here's here's here's some other superintendent baseball games of people's names on it all right so we got it. Ken griffey junior. Obviously cal ripken junior. Okay i want to say. I hear the big hurt that one. He's the big hurt. Frank thomas who the heck that is Wasn't there tommy lasorda's baseball there. All the time in the sort of base. That's another coach. Yeah but my tears. There's so many they're like bo. Jackson was the one that i knew knows everything. He was a pro star. Time ill-assorted base but that was on the genesis. Always thought was a weird because like didn't look like he wasn't i'm not saying he's an ugly person. Oh don't say like like all these like ken. Griffey junior and frank. Thomas jackson like they have like this image. You know like you're all about like some of celebrity. And then he got tommy lasorda. Replace arrays ball. He's in it for the game. Care about not vein. There is one that was a catcher. Maybe that was on the. Yeah on the playstation in the ride playstation ri- so. I don't know i used to know that because remember seeing it while we worked at b. and being like why did he on the cover. Hey i don't understand it supports. I'm sure for some reason. Maybe said something that made people laugh and go. He's not he's now known for being the guy at the funny thing in baseball ex game in the series. I can't say anything because like Like here we are talking about. A game made entirely for the characters from a web comic penny arcade number like and then of course like people you know who are been playing baseball for their entire lives. They're going to have the ring video game. It just goes. I mean star. Power can come from any number of things. Yeah this just what catches on absolutely But this this this track sounds very very different. Sounds it's got more like a techno edge to it. It doesn't sound it doesn't sound baseball. And because it got me thinking about it because for years like you know when you're younger you don't care as much about developers me. Obviously i was like the big boys like nami and capcom because they kinda splash their name on the product. So you kind of these resonated with lake mega man is clearly capcom right but for the most part a lot of games all you knew wasn't licensed for nintendo so you just thought it was nintendo game so i never knew who developed become vs king griffey junior baseball as and apparently unbeknownst to me they were developed by two different studios so the first one which with chef anton was claim a claim which is interesting but that was developed by plan yeah and then it's i wanna say fallen and then this one was rare Which which is make sense that evelyn never cover could be on that but it just shocked the that two different studios produce these king griffey junior games which means that the licensed changed hands and still win with this character like usually. I'd have trouble picturing that. They would go with the same baseball player despite being two different studios as opposed to be like. Okay we'll go to call it super baseball or just another star. I think it's i think it's it's ken. Griffey junior manager is just a powerhouse and got him. Two games and ken griffey junior was like. Hey in my contract this. I'm getting to video games and the guy was like well. I mean we already got one from acclaim and they're not gonna make you another. Let's find another company. He earns his keep. That's do it. Although i remember that i i don't remember this game. I've never played either. So i i do remember the first game intendo powers to this one this one. Not so much later. It's like the was ninety one. I'll look it up later about once these keynote with ninety eight yet. That's that's late in the superintendent. Which by then was probably playing playstation and standard. So all right. So what's your next game. You're next per no plays the best games in seattle. Not that far this was one. I actually didn't even know existed. Ask no i did know it existed but it was loosely. Confirmed it for this episode. Okay so this track is actually ninja guided but again. This is being that guy cheats. Sometimes okay that's fine. This is the turbo. Graph is sixteen ninja guyton game but possesses this is. It's more based on the arcade. Isn't it marcy. that's hard to say like visually. It looks more like his touching base on the on the on the nintendo version. But like just what's quote unquote improved. Graphics blow it can go either way cheating because this is actually turbo cd get no. I'm just saying cheating because you know some there's always at his td sixteen sixteen.

"In his first major at bat he did double so Just based on the we'll just go over how how these these teams like work it structure wise so There is two different types of class. A ball there is class a rookie ball. Which is a very shortened season And it's mostly about trying to get to see if guys are going to be able to make a jump And some guys don't perform well and then they are resigned to play again in that or sometimes they're just cut then. There is a lot like in a traditionally length season for regular class. A ball which is where griffey would were would end up going after his stint with shortened season. Then it goes from that in rookie ball that first single a to double aid and then that's where most of the prospects like the best prospects are playing is in aa. And they have they have really good you know child the top prospects in the organization And then triple a. Is where guys kind of go to Like a lotta guys go straight from aa chew aaa mid a lot but the top top prospects go straight from aa to the bigs because if you could they're saying if you can hit and you can hit everywhere or and also i mean the same is good for Like class able because a lot of those guys have really nasty stuff but they can't control it so if you can hit even though they don't even know where the ball's gonna go. That just proves that you can hit off somebody who does know what he's doing and i mean that's that's a really common that's really common Like euphemism phrase in this in this career early in this career field but is defensive. Career was widely considered elite fielding practice during his decade exemplified by streak of ten straight gold gloves from one thousand nine hundred and nine hundred ninety nine. His impressive range allied with frequent spectacular diving plays in his dow often dazzled fans with over the shoulder basket catches and robbing opposing hitters of home runs by leaping up and pulling them back into the field of play. He was featured on the wheaties cereal box and had his own signature sneaker line from nike on april third nineteen eighty nine. He made his very first major league baseball appearance. Griffey hit a line drive double off. Oakland a's pitcher. Dave stewart at the oakland coliseum. One week later in his first at bat in the kingdom griffey hit his first major league. Home run review was a frequent participant. The all star games praying all star during the one thousand nine hundred. Ninety s led the to multiple times in different hitting categories in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred ninety one griffey. His father became the first father son to play on the same team at the same time. And since his father's first game as mariner on august thirtieth nineteen ninety the pair of back to back hitting singles in the first inning and both scored on september fourteenth appear. Hit back to back home. Runs in the top of the first against the california angels pitcher kirk nicastro becoming the first father-son duo to hit back to back home runs in. Mlb history the do of later. Total fifty games together before griffey senior retired in one thousand nine hundred one at the major league baseball home run derby nineteen ninety-three which was held at oriole park in baltimore. Griffey hit the warehouse beyond right field wall which on the fly and is still the only player to ever do. So as with every homerun that hit the hits utah street and each homerun. There is honored with a a a certain plaque. That is That is embedded horizontally onto the concourse walkway in the exact spot. Where the home run landed in one thousand nine hundred four. He led league voting for all star candidates in selection that season which ended prematurely on august twelfth due to labor disputes. Saw griffey hit thirty home. Runs and the mariners for sixty five games he would go on to have four multi home run games that you're the while his pace cooled somewhat during the final eight weeks of the season only at ten home runs in the mariners last forty seven games but his first forty home runs by august. Which would put him to ahead of. Chicago's frank thomas. F four ahead of cleveland's albert belle for the american league lead one of the most memorable moments of griffey's career with the mariners came during the nineteen ninety-five american league. Division series against the new york yankees. After losing the first two games the marriages griffey were on the verge of elimination but came back to win the next two game setting up a decisive fifth game and the bottom of the eleventh inning of game. Five with griffey on first base he may edgar martinez had a double griffey round. The basis slid into home with the winning run and pots of waiting into the waiting arms of his entire team. The one thousand nine hundred. Five american league division series would kick off brief a brief rivalry between the yankees and mariners and griffey may have escalated it by saying he would never ever play for the yankees because the the yankees allegedly treated his father. Ken griffey junior so badly. Also when griffey was a kid by also when griffey was a kid by visiting his dad. In the yankee clubhouse yankee manager billy martin would believing that children did not belong in the clubhouse would kick him out of there. Although the mariners subsequently lost the lcs to indians managed by later manager of the mariners. Mike hargrove that moment still remains one of the most memorable in mariners history capping season that quote unquote save baseball in seattle and quote and So if you're unaware of that. I really recommend you guys going and checking out the The the secret base They did a entire entire like ten hour piece on the history of the seattle mariners and it is fantastic. And i really recommend that you guys go and watch it a little bit. Just you can get to understand how that season did save baseball in seattle because seattle was definitely leaving. If they didn't get a new stadium built end because of griffey and that t and that seattle team they ended up making a huge huge like they ended up being just one of the best teams that had ever played baseball. And jill legitimately say baseball in that city and because of the just improbable late-season playoff run that year. Which was really spurred by. Griffey's return from led to the construction of safeco field and the future. Security of a franchise rumored for years to be on the move. That play also inspired the video game of ken. Griffey juniors winning run for the super any s and ninety seven griffey lead the mariners to the al west crown captured the american league most valuable player hitting three or four with fifty six home runs in one hundred and forty seven.

'Long Gone Summer' Documentary Revisits Controversial 1998 Home Run Chase
"Are joined by the director of long gone. Summer AJ SCHMUCK AJ. Congratulations loved watching that film. What does it feel like to have the film finally be seen by the world. I mean it's crazy. It's a been a long journey to get to this point, and it feels like a total miracle to have finished. With the pandemic and working separately with all my team so finally being able to get the film done and get it's ESPN. Feels like a huge accomplishment. Why did you decide to start the dock with the actual baseball's that mark mcgwire hit. Well is in part because we. When we met Todd McFarlane The Great Comic Book Artist Entrepreneur Who who bought all the balls or a bunch of balls including at number seventy. I just love the way he talked about the home run, and how it is something that really connects baseball fans to the game in a way that you don't get in any other sports so as soon as we like walked out of of interviewing him, I I turned to my producer, and said you know that's the beginning of the film. Is Him talking about what the home run in baseball means and how it connects fans, drinks have direct contact between Maguire's bat, and and the person who catches it. So that was that was great also has sort of the other. Bonus. Positive thing of reminding you that someone paid more than three million dollars. Baseball that's how big this was That's how much this took over the country that someone would would go to that extent. To own that ball. Having when watching that scene in Rhode. explained. HOW MICHAEL JORDAN HITS! A shot wins the championship. They go and bring him the basketball, and if if a quarterback breaks a record with the past, bring him the football, but with the home run. You literally hit into the stands, and you never see it again and it was sort of a way that the fan can take home a piece of the game in baseball. They can't other any other way. Way that happens with the home run, but then you did you hear him sort of articulate this, and then the question is asked how much you pay for it. It was just so much money that I wanted to know. How does this? How much are they paying people that bitter comic book illustrators, nowadays like what is the going rate for commentator Peter? How can this man afford this multimillion dollar baseball? Spun was very successful, but yeah I think. He spent basically every penny he owned and you know I I think in part. He did it because he he wanted to get into the business of making action figures for for sports. And and that happens I, mean he basically that was his way of getting everyone's attention in saying. Hey, I'm serious I. Care About Sports Let me make action figures, and and he did I think it was not only something that he wanted to do one thing that didn't make the film which I I tried to find a way to put it in, but he talked about how. His brothers are all baseball fans, one of the key excitement for him in getting the balls with just to be able to say I've got the baseball. As like well. You got three million dollars for that God. Bless Ya. I know that's right. The kid sweet swinging lefty King Griffey Junior, one of my favorite players growing up as Wa. Carry a bet to this day. was more of a factor. With Sosa mcgwire that people actually a realize. Can you acknowledge how his performance affected them? Certainly I mean one of the crazy things I think about that. Season was that people really went into it from spring training, thinking that either Maguire or junior were gonNA. Make this record. Both of them at hit and high fifties the year before this was an expansion year. Everyone just thought like this is GonNa happen went into the season, thinking that Griffey was was in it. You know right I think if you even remember the Griffey was in it. You forget that he was in it until late August when he had kind of a long slump I think he only hit one one home run and like twenty games and may still hits. Hyphen! which is a tremendous season that gets overlooked by what happened with mcgwire and Sosa, but certainly yeah I mean congruency. Junior had an amazing year that year and. It was in a in addition to to all the stuff. We remember of Sosa and mcgwire. He was. He was hitting the ball longer. In Maguire was sort of famously one of the bash brothers, and he had a great career while he was in Oakland with the athletes and Sammy Sosa wasn't as celebrated as a baseball player, and he said something in the film that really hit accord me, said quote ahead had to continue hitting. Because if not, they're not going to mention me. Why did you include that emphasized that and what that means you from Sami? I thought it was great. It Sammy acknowledged that he wanted to the respect. He thought he deserved, and he does that a few times I think in the film and I mean that's sort of a lighthearted way of like saying like. I turned on sports center at night and if I don't hit a home run like they're not gonNA mentioned. He wanted to be mentioned. He wanted to be acknowledged and I think that one of the things I hope that the film does Sami. Wasn't that well known outside of Chicago before ninety eight, but. That's in part because the comes weren't very good, but the Sammy was was a great player for the cubs. A thirty thirty guy I thirty thirty guy ever in cubs history. He was a top home run hitter in the National League for years. I was one year where he was on track to get close to the record. But was injured in in August so You know was a goal to sort of illuminate. The fact that Sami wasn't just somebody who like. Jumped out of nowhere in June of Nineteen Ninety eight that he meant something in Chicago before that. Implant in Chicago, the weather can be a factor. Do you believe it play as much of a factor as Sammy Sosa states. I mean all I can tell you that. We were there in May of last year to shoot the Saint Louis Chicago series in their. Earliest! May and it's snowed one morning. And I was just like. I grew up in southern Illinois outside the St, Louis and I love Chicago. Chicago is great, but I was just like hell though. Away being at the game it was cold. It was rainy and it was just like damn out. This is football. Weather's that I don't know but yeah. No. I definitely know He. He I believe in when he says he's. He was a hitter that did better when it got warm. Not that good of a hitter in the cold. Certainly, see see that that would be the case. Which I think is also in the film. You'll see you know one of the things that makes a Kerry Wood's twenty strikeout game. All the more impressive is that he's. He's doing it on one of those days, and the rain is coming down east going through like You know thirteen fourteen fifteen strikeouts that day, so? Yeah! It's whether in and regularly I think is probably no joke. With all of what's happening in our society in the world, not just in our country today we kind of have to look at things in stories in history, and currently through the filter of race. And how do you think race played a role in this particular story of mcgwire and Sosa and that summer? I think that people wanted to feel good about the fact that they liked this battle between these two guys who were from different cultures different countries. And different races. That probably made people want pat themselves on the back for feelings so good about it I think in part there still memories of what had happened to Hank Aaron and sort of the ugliness when he was. Setting the all time home run record. So people felt like. Wow, look at how far we've come to celebrate and get excited about the fact that this could be. A champion of homerun record that was held by either of these two guys. There's a somewhat famous. Cartoon! Where the two of them are depicted with their bats wall has been broken in the wall, says racist. You know like that. The two of them had finally solved this problem. They beaten it. And I think. It's just a you know. It's one of those times when. People have wanted to. Congratulate themselves for reaching a certain. Threshold and clearly all of those congratulations were way premature. And we're still. We're still fighting for it. I hope that the people. Look at this though as a story of these two champions, and can get some excitement out of the fact that they did come from different backgrounds, and they have very different stores,

The Power Of Words
"Hi everybody it's Karen Hutton. And this is the Wu. It's a little show that I do. That's all about out photography inspiration life and that beautiful blendi place where they all play together today. You WanNa talk about something that I feel. Feel really strongly about for a bunch of reasons. I'm calling this show this episode the power of words. I wrote an article for landscape photography. Griffey magazine Awhile back that we called the second most important skill you need is a photographer and you know what that is writing. Because is most every photographer I know is either an engaged amateur and enthusiastic hobbyist and emerging professional or full blown professional in every case they write emails social posts texts subject lines. Descriptions proposals resumes blog. Post articles talks byles Artist statements on my God. The list is long and of course. It's all dependent upon where you are on the continuum right. You're not necessarily going to do all of those things. But that you might. My point is if you're gonNA share your ideas and your vision. It means writing in about a thousand different ways. But here's what got got me going on this whole line of thinking. I often see photographer. Say I want my photo to stand on its own. I don't want to sully it with words. I WANNA leave it up to the reviewer to decide what they think what they feel about their piece of work and I get it. You want people to see your work arrive at their own conclusions and have their own thoughts. It's and feelings definitely fair enough. But here's the thing in order to even get someone to start your work long enough to come to their own conclusions. Have thoughts about about your work. You got to invite him in and unfortunately social media has made it so. It's not always enough just to have your image out there floating through a stream somewhere you have have to. Kinda create a world. You gotta blow in your audience's era little you now. It's about connection. It's about communication and invitation. People people love to be invited included in the inner circle and everyone responds to things a little differently. Some people are more verbal. Some people are more visual. Some people like booth and then not to mention if you're a professional artist not talking about it just isn't an option and one of the things I mean by talking about it is actually actually verbally talking about it. Like if somebody says will what do you do. And what's it all about and what's your vision behind your work. It's not that easy to talk about when it's your own work. If you notice that so writing about it helps you work out your elevator speech. You're dialogue what it is. You're going to say so that you don't ramble on and on and on and bore your people to death right so writing helps with that too. So here's a for instance. I just spend a day recently an entire day visiting galleries in New York City and a day day in New York City Galleries. It's not nearly enough but I sure did enjoy it and it also confirmed what I already knew. The written word was at least least as important as the art itself. In some cases it did a complimentary job in like say the description. The next question a lot of people ask. Which is you know? What is it printed on was done. What's the name but then their stuff about the artist because if you like the art and you WanNa know something about the artist. Who is this person. Where did this has come from. What is their vision. I'm having my own thoughts and feelings here. But what is. There's it's like a conversation that you set up it pretty much all happens in your viewers head Ed. But it's a conversation that you're taking part in by giving them a certain amount of information all of which requires writing. I gotta be honest. It added to it. Didn't detract attract from my desire to connect with the work. And even though I was there on my own reconnaissance gathering my own information for my own purposes there were actually actually a few pieces that I loved enough and then I bonded with the artist. I loved the vision. I loved what they're doing and I was like you know what if I were here to buy art. I'd buy this in a heartbeat and it was the combination of the words and the work and the whole presentation. Now I'll be the first to admit finding the right words isn't always easy Eh. But it is an exercise that can help your viewers understand you and your art better and in new ways. I mean like I said before I find it helps me understand understand my own work better because the right words make me see it in a whole different way and then I start believing in myself and the work even more. I'll be honest. I spent timing authorities to find those right words and synonyms and Antonyms. And when you know when you find the right words just packed with the right meaning it makes you go. Yeah that's it and it's the most awesome feeling. Nowadays we live in connection economy. We live in a connection society. Where having it and not having it have tremendous repercussions. So why would you waste an opportunity especially in photography where the competition is so tremendous to connect not just by I showing the work of your vision. You know the photograph but the words that resonate with it too because I am talking about a residence here. It's almost like setting up a little resonance field field. That attracts your perfect. Audience Your Lover's of you to your world and the image is part of it where somebody sees it as part of the things you say about. It is part of it. It's a package. It's world that you're creating and people will come to their own conclusion. No matter what whether you provide words or not But the more participation you have in that conclusion the better and the more irresistible invitations. You give out through your work in the words and everything nothing else. The longer they'll hang out in your world and the more likely it is they'll bond with it's just human nature. Here's another thing about this engaging with Art Or anything else for that matter but art is a huge one on multiple levels. So that means you know visual emotional. Mental Verbal tactile. You know whatever all these different senses. The more you engage people on all those multiple levels it activates more parts of the brain and then a single level of engagement. That may seem like a big dud to you but with all the research they're doing on brain function and brain activity these days. This this is an important one for an artist to know. They're talking about art to help. Activate rains in the health and wellness industry in healing traumatic injury and brain injury. Art Plays plays a big role and it isn't just visual. Because people need their words to and words do help carry it forth. I mean anything if you're a professional final photographer if you WANNA be a professional photographer or do anything with your work. Besides stare at it on your computer screen words are going to help carry it forward again. I said this this before but social posts emails descriptions texts artist's statement BIOS. I just had to say it again. You you gotta write it or hire somebody to and even if you hire. Here's somebody to write it. They're gonNA ask you for the descriptors for enough information so that they can write it and there you go again you gotTa have some words even if you hire somebody else the writing you gotta give them enough the story in words to write about it so there's really no escaping this. Here's another thing. I have a lot of things about this. You don't don't have a glass head. We cannot read your mind. Sure will come to our conclusions about your work without descriptions or without saying anything but one of the conclusions we might just just come to is. He don't really care if we care or not. And that's not such a good conclusion. It's like controlling the message. It's controlling the presentation. It's leaving no oh door unopened no stone unturned in your outreach. In your bonding potential with your audience. I'm not taking anything away from from the social stream. You still have plenty of time to grab. Somebody's attention without words. As our image goes flying by them. You will not be deprived of that opportunity. Trust me but give us all a reason to stay. Even if your photo grabs our attention give us a reason to stay and interact with it and think about it and internalize isn't gonna Ha. I never thought of that. Wow that's how they see ha. That is so cool. Tell us you care. Tell us you value our time and tell tell us. Your Y. that's huge. Everybody loves that and tell US words. Expression doesn't come in one flavor and understanding saying doesn't all happen on one level. You are a multifaceted interesting visionary. Tell us what you believe with all your heart and why it matters. Let us be bold over with y you create in the first place because that's the story will remember the one you tell us in about a thousand different ways in your descriptions ends in your BIOS in your artist statement and all that stuff. That's why we'll buy your work. Yes we love the work. Yes we want to have it around us. But it's the rest that fills it in tankers it in our heart and our soul and in our minds then we by the work as a reminder of the power of you because we want you in our lives and he gotTa have words to do that just another little way to think about words and I hope you enjoyed it and hope. Ponder it a little bit.

Artificial Intelligence in Industry
The Strengths Non-Technical Employees Bring to AI Projects - With Wijay Wijayakumaran of IBM
"So we were wanted to begin for this interview was to ask you about how nontechnical professionals can advance their career in this era i think a lot of people are concerned that their jobs will be automated or that the technical folks will serve really kind of have the day and have the glory so to speak as as a i really starts transforming sectors would be your advice for non technical professionals john ought to start off by saying that nontechnical professionals type of betty boughten kroll in a adoption in organizations which in my experience some of the best adoption use cases come from these people they often think beyond the boundaries of technical the people can be a bone by hence they have an important crew ready all on the topic of AA on kick them compete for what stay media correction direction it's fear for some of the mole MD's just ones you know they'll probably read dumpy that fear but i'd say you know you need to look at it with it's an open mike you need to embrace it in fact recently i even heard the elon musk say that it's gonna be joining and so hey one of those things that's very pervasive needs to be looked at as a given around us on the more common as we go along so there will be no need to learn to embrace it you know i think probably most of the folks that listen to this show or pretty pretty well convinced that value proposition that you know this isn't something will necessarily be able to avoid here artificial intelligence is going to some industries faster than others some geographies griffey's faster than others is going to change the way that businesses operate treat their data teams operate etc you're kind of mentoring nontechnical folks she kind of tune in and be able to be a part of that i think a lot of them are kind of concerned how how will my career advance if i'm not the one who sort of writing the code food and you've probably seen plenty of that through your own career and i think your perspective there would be valuable yeah so the way that technology evolving and the tanks to the open systems open source movements these days there's a lot of depth of the layers etcetera becoming being easier they covered look at the layers at the deepest level of course there are scientists scientists and quotas and so on who local media but some of the tools languages and according etc whoever comes to adoption the first step is ending being the right place to plate that's about thinking whatever you do today how can i help you to do so i think that it does something where a nontechnical professional can start they can start adding value that space so in terms of learning you know how can they run that korea's in an era i probably look at it this way whenever we learn something new it is always based on the knowledge space or thing to have certain areas that they're good at certain things at that holds some being make-up's background so embracing a learning about it is there's an enterprising thanks for someone unique themselves so the kids have a non technical use it it can often be the area but in terms of that de domain expertise given me is so pervasive and it can be applied almost anywhere i'd say the first step is to kind of understand a from that domain perspective learn about adoption areas use cases bet you for sources the dates uh podcasts much for example is one of the fantastic resources that's available to anyone i use it heavily and particularly to get a a business perspective of can be quite do a great job there and talk to people talk to vendors as you get exposed to more of a stories learning of how others using it etc automatically mclean you begin to appreciate more of but some of the quarry details at the terminology the layers technology dave on it's not gonna make much sense but as you get involved in this little more all the little pieces calling into place and now the key thing that i'd say he's almost must tall nontechnical person to von secca the age to be enrolled in college there's always a team role all for multiple people to play these projects and could being tons of explaining the data could be in terms of having that the people understanding of the process the process understanding and uses understanding impact address so there's nothing like getting involved in the project and you know get them an honest insight into the workings of the project as well as the tools the technologies and ultimately of course you know what the can and cannot do the excellent you mind if i poke into some of those ideas what j. show great so i yeah i think this is really a good place to start here then obviously you have more personal experience in this domain than i you know when i think about the value of subject matter experts in nontechnical managers managers functional business leaders the kinds of people that are likely listening to a in industry the kind of people that have been with us for years certainly you brought up i think your first point was adoption in other words wear could i be a fit where where would we select a project how would we evaluate where i could could really help us i think probably probably a lot of other smart folks would agree with you that finding those opportunity areas for actually has more to do with the conceptual understanding of AI and a very good understanding of the business than it does a pure science perspective on machine learning neural nets themselves so kind of where where to find the opportunity fit i think is originally really important point in you'd mentioned how important it is to get experience with with an AI project will talk a little bit about kind of knowledge and experience and skills and and what's important to build on one of the area that i often think about and you may have more in depth feedback or a different perspective on this is in terms of non technical folks picking projects will find opportunity areas within the business as one also being able to i think as you were kind of hinting be part of an AI team team you know when a project kicks off whether it's a a fraud initiative or it's a you know product recommendation initiative for ecommerce company whatever the case may be they'll need any data scientists but they'll also need business people in the loop subject matter experts in the loop constantly to ask is this working is this is this is the interface where creating something that your team could use hey are the false positives going down are are the false negatives going down you know whatever the case may be in terms terms of how we're measuring success they'll have to be someone who isn't just an AI experts someone who who's working in the door and business who can constantly kind of be there throughout that process was that sort of what you were talking about when it comes to being part of AI project sort of being able to be the point person there were on that team if you will yet absolute looks like being able to be on the project from start to finish giving that visibility to the get a scientist a experts and saw you're probably taking the responsibility of running the project beep a day to day person there might be a a business focal point an exact who's a sponsor but he or she may not be able to be involved in it on a daily basis but then this this domain expert you know with the spiting to to be an informed domain expert you know has can be that could point to bring the requirement processed age the knowledge critical took suspect is interpretation of you know the floor exeter i'm ben you know it also gives them an opportunity they get exposed to on the dacian of but it will be the terminology the tools and each of those i i don't know if you didn't get for them to question and understand and get feedback where all the different bits and pieces together
Andrew Luck retirement: Here's hoping he finds peace and fulfillment in whatever is next to come
"Colts quarterback Andrew luck retiring played six seasons in the NFL he missed all of the twenty seventeen season made one A. F. C. championship games the forty four time pro bowler with zero Super Bowl appearances and there are some people as expected Joe on social media and elsewhere that are calling into like a botched I think he's a disappointment I think that's fair to say but I don't think you can call a guy who was predominately injured and then played well when he was healthy Abbas injure looks kind of like a bill Walton to me now I guess bill Walton did win a couple of championships including one with the Celtics when he was coming off the bench but he had his career defined by injuries I think that's more lock then putting him in that Ryan leaf Johnny Manziel category which I just don't think it's fair at all no no no no no I. V. kebab that would they they got to an AFC championship game he made pro bowls as you mentioned and if you can't shake the injury bug well that's a completely separate topic if you want to call it a disappointment you want to call it one of the great what ifs in sports not just football but just sports you know sometimes I always wonder what would have looked like if Ken Griffey junior could have stayed healthy throughout his entire career in baseball those I think are fair conversations but this business that he is some sort of a bust com on people let's step away from the Twitter machine for a little bit let's get away for that to think this through a little bit before we start talking that noise you know that that were just pops like it's an evocative word it's you have an emotional reaction when you hear it but I I do think that it's disappointing I I think he's one of the most hyped quarterbacks to ever come into the league and to see him with zero Super Bowl appearances on his resume at least for now I keep reminding myself tonight Joe that Andrew luck story may not be quite done here mom because you know twenty nine years old whenever you retire like rob Gronkowski retires similar age you know not not that much older than and you lock in everyone says the same thing just wait until November in ground pool plug himself back into the New England Patriots in here we go so I would not be shocked to see a lot get healthy and come back but tonight certainly he signed it sounded pretty resigned to the S. and like he had given it some serious thought and I imagine I can only imagine how the colts organization feels you know after preparing for a season where they thought they were going to be Superbowl contenders with one of the top G. M. as in the league in Chris Ballard all of a sudden they have Jacoby per set as their starting quarterback after luck made the announcement colts owner Jim Irsay gave his reaction to Andrew luck's retirement right now we're just thankful about what Anders meant to this city I know a lot of a lot of range of emotions go through our fans and and that's a a natural thing that we can all relate to it was something obviously that we are hoping that might be something that that could have went a different direction but if he had a file is hard and and that's what he did and so again we have nothing but gratitude and thankfulness for for the blood sweat and tears you spill the as number twelve and part of our hearts broken and I

Drive Time Sports
Mike Trout, Angels finalizing a record 12-year, roughly $430 million extension
"Today might trout sign. The biggest contract in American sports history. Twelve years four hundred and thirty million dollars. Not only does he get the most money over the course of his contract beating Bryce Harper. But he also surpasses that Grank for the highest average annual value. No. Just saying. Wow. Oh, hi. Thank you. I like. Yeah. I crazy. And you know, why that sixty eight dollars a minute for the next twelve years. Would anyone make over a dollar a minute? Plenty of people would. But I'm just saying like how like it's not a huge percentage of people that make a dollar a minute. Sixty bucks an hour. Think about sixty dollars an hour. That's a ton of money. Yeah. Gene. He's getting paid crazy. Second right insanity. He's like Joel Embiid in the Hulu commercial, Hulu has live sports. Then they just throw money at him who has live sport that. That's my trout just hand me the money as I'm walking down the street because I'm getting unbelievable. But you know, what as a player? He absolutely deserves it as a baseball player strictly. The most gifted baseball player we have seen. Since Ken Griffey junior was in his prime in Seattle, and many people would argue might trout is better. But it brings up an interesting. Discussion. This contract empowers Mike trout to continue to do nothing for the game of baseball in terms of promoting it might trout does very very very very little to promote the game of baseball. And this contract empowers them to continue to do the same thing. The question is is that the right thing. Like is it incumbent upon somebody like Mike trout to promote the game of baseball. Should he be promoting the game of baseball? Should he make more appearances? Should he tried to be more commercials? Should he try to be on sitcoms or whatever it is host Saturday Night, Live, whatever they it is should Mike trout. Be more of an ambassador for the game of baseball because he's not. Four hundred thirty million dollars mean that he doesn't have to because if he's still worth that much to an organization, then why should he have to go above and beyond to promote himself? The angels in baseball. Or is it like, okay, dude? Like. You're getting four hundred thirty million dollars. You think you could? You know appear on a few more talk shows. I know they can't make him do that. I'm talking about the just the the public opinion thing. Do you think that he should nowadays game paid four hundred thirty million dollars over the next twelve
Tha Boxing Voice
A Wrestling Fan's Guide To Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury
"And I'll admit I've been critical of his boxing ability at times, but that man has always got a chance with the best in the world because he has got this free. Freak of nature power. That is just I mean, it is like watching Vince Carter dunk. It's like watching Barry Bonds hit a woman. I shouldn't use very it's like watching a Ken Griffey hit home runs out. That was when I could come up with you know, it's like watching Michael Jordan play like LeBron play Koby play like the it is a leak a leak. I'm talking about in the world. There is no one else that could do what he does or earliest very very few a meantime, what he say point zero one percent of the world probably lesson that in. So I'm glad that got cleared up because while size can definitely add power with some people when you have that God given ability to knock a man clean out. His but knock is so out his body. It don't really matter. If you're if you're five even ten pounds less it, it's you know, you got that power, man. Yeah. Man. Look interesting to see that back in the ring.

"The is an academy at N news. Thursday's announcement that a ceasefire deal has been reached between Yemen's warring sides in the key Red Sea. Port of data will make it easier to save millions of lives in the war torn country, the World Food Program or WFP has said in an interview with you a news. Daniel Johnson WFP spokesperson elevator who SEL explains. Or more such deals are needed to help severely food insecure. People in forty five districts across Yemen in how the international community should support it recovery in the long term. It's time to put the civilian in the interest of twenty nine million civilian first before a military or political priorities. What we from is agreement in data. I is a bit of use of the port in Yemen. Ninety percent of the food is imported and seventy percent of that food is imported via the audit the port in since when months we've seen a decrease of fifty percent in the number of ships coming there goes private company way with. Can the security situation? So you really want private companies to come back. You want to reassure them that that's going to happen is the union to play a bigger role in the processing of this aid and assistance in commercial goods coming through the UN will participate to the organization of that part. But on the top of the port itself. The governor aid of audit is one of the priority or agent for the World Food Program. A lot of people are civilly food assistance, and it was sometimes difficult to each them because of the safety situation in because of the fighting and now it will be easier to them. Also, thanks to that agreement under third one. Also is that potentially we've the goods arriving at the port that will give us an easier way to send that from the that the head of the country last month, we have between seven and eight million people this morning. It will be ten million people. And at the end of January twelve million people that will help us to reach the target to receive the food that people need and to respect you that food too. The different part of the country from data. So where can you not get to at the moment because you're reaching twelve million people very soon, you say, in fact, that's forty five states in the country where the situation is the more difficult because people are in the situation, including what we call liberal five. This is highest level of food, insecurity. In fact, those who are really very close to famine if not infamous exactly technically, that's like famine like in January, we we are to reach some of them that we've never reached in the past. But we also will come the fact that the different parties agreed to meet again, maybe early as the end of next month to districts potentially about other agreement other agents and other issues why important for the country. Can we have a ceasefire in on the part of the country? Can we have full access to all the country and very importantly the economy, and they're going to do this by getting private industry back into the country via who data that's your hope and also by oil sales. We need to. The currency. We need to inject back money in the economy de were actually in Sweden during the first couple of days of the tool. What was your sense of how things were going the confidence and trust from both sides? And also what was the trust from the international community. You talk about the help that the country needs to boost it central Bank funds. You know, we're talking about two three hundred million dollars minimum. So what was your sense of those two things? I think they have today. People understood the determination of Matin Griffey to UN special envoy for women. That's very somebody was very determinated to find a solution in into basically, the people in Yemen. And they have today we started to receive some information at all maybe something will happen in on the last day when you in secretary general came that announcement was of course, where we import on will con- by everybody, including W F B. Hopefully, we will see a similar results in the, hey, John or global weasels. Did you get a sense that the other countries that was present in Sweden were willing to? To make a commitment. I'm not a politician. It's not for me to respond to that. What's show is that thing that we see since a few weeks few months who worldwide agreement people say enough, it's enough. We've been too far it's time to stop that were to save a million people who can be safe today. They can miekel situation was the very difficult before the conflict. Now, the situation is the 'hamitic a huge amount of money. We need to be checked it I in two minutes report. And then to deployment of the local economy. I hope that some country will participate to that scene. It's not very important.
