We did so after really pushing our developers and the general contractor to take control of this situation, Greg says. Amazon ordered the shutdown, even though it hasn't yet taken over the site. While we believe things were being managed appropriately.

"I put up these images were these ethereal like universal limited like oh everybody will understand and then i put some text with it and my teacher just chastised me to no end saying using text in that way is a crutch because i didn't put the work into putting the story in the photo. Now don't get me wrong. In hindsight he was completely right at the time. I was furious but he was completely right in hindsight an and had the chance to apologize to him too about a decade later. When i saw him again and then i also had an even in my own master's thesis. I did text and images so like i understand this process and i paint over the the balance of like trying to find the right quality as your visceral emotive expression of an image to combine with a piece of text. And it's incredibly difficult to do that. Well i have seen many people do it mediocre. I've seen a few people. Do it. Phenomenally but he i and i don't know what that trick is. That makes it so that it really works. Well do you know so. I i didn't. I didn't take it as criticism mortgages. I don't wanna be led by the question to deny some parts of my work or just the upfront. It is what it is about and these are questions. I'm interested in and no. I don't know what it's about in part because i don't think there's a formula anti could provide. I wish i could for all this news. It's gonna lay out the five steps for making great image text projects. But i'm looking for an excel spreadsheet with a step by step process. That's like nobody seems to be able to give it to me. I can sell you that magic in a bottle hundred dollars you want to send it over chinese people online that try to sell those things. Yes i think again. The structure of the project kind of demands of balance between texting image. I think there are some just by the story. I wanna tell need to be a little more tech savvy and there are others that need just a little bit of guidance from text and that the image is really what dominates i mean. I see it a little bit. Maybe like the two sides of reins of a horse or something where it's like you pull too hard on the text than you kinda go off and i want you to hard on the image because another way and so there's a balancing but the harder question is like the balancing point changes based on the project and what it needs to be and understanding that i think is baked into the process of making the work and spending a lotta time with it. My last couple of projects have been fairly text heavy because they're quite narratives in their scope and so images are there but they try to be a line parallel not duplicating information but reinforcing mood reinforcing a sense of space where the is happening with him but trying not to just simply or simply duplicates material. That's already in the text itself and for me. I think that balancing point generally has to do with that question of resonance between image and text and trying not to illustrator duplicates content. Okay now i'm also interested. How do you come up with your projects. I have a a word document which i put ideas in and i've got enough project yester- lifetimes ninety percent of them are horrible ideas. But they're all there every once in a while ago through an edited down. I mean one of the things about photography going back to my origin painting painting by the time required from making every individual object.

"Depend on our necessarily need to take part in a broader world. It has its own dynamics its own chiefs and followers. Its own incredible institutions. Its own pettiness. it's it's it is both participants in and very much removed from the broader photography world. And so i think yet tracking the broader of cultural relationship to the outside world. I don't think it's as helpful here from mexico to be advocacy evening. I have were in columbia. Did steal more of an advantage for sure. We'll fuck you. Want to have that empathy with you but and it is what it is. Yeah exactly. i'm perfectly fine with it as the situation. I got myself into so they were you all right now. I helped me out first of all because my Tact is pretty low. So like with you on that okay. Great all right. So latin art. When i was in school it we had like there was central american art. There was south american art and they sort of separate separated that way. Of course then there was like pre-columbian and all these different terminologies it's what would be the appropriate term right now for contemporary art made in central or south america. This probably somebody that can answer that question better for you but i would just say latin american art as just kind of a blanket term. I mean you can break it down from there. But when a articles about this area of the world it just tends to reference. It is latin american art or unlisted as a juror. Let's in prepay tate and it's on this pronouncing that but it's like latin america or something. It seems to be how people denominate the region from outside. And actually i think from with inside in spanish as well people would refer to the broader the grotto region that way you could break it down to south america or central american mexican colombian. But i would say that the blanket term living where you were in columbia which is which is meeting which is not as. Let's say affluent as where you were raised in america or even a lot of the american larger cities and then to go to mexico city. The question i have is not about that. But the sort of setting the the basis for it i find in america. That photographers are really arrogant about their equipment. They're like oh yeah. I got the lens with the red ring around it. Or i've got these really expensive strobe lights and the biggest blah blah Do see a difference in that sort of attitude towards sort of comparative equipment judging between photographers in other countries. Not that much. I think it depends a little bit on the strategy photographer. You find i mean it's every semester at the university got my classes and there's always like one kid in the back. The first day is asking about lenses. So there's always the gearhead there's always somebody. That's interested in equipment but i would say generally especially. Let's say editing which. I can speak about that or just having spent a lot more time there. I don't. I don't find equipment to be really a central conversation very much. Actually i think a lot of conversations revolve around interest your podcasts. In your questions about like how to make contacts. How do i get in the world. How do i get my work. Seen how do. I take part in a ladder larger conversation. Have you need so. And so so i think a lot of it is strategy. I mean you're living in that part of the world. Let's don't speak english. Let's say you're your budget is low for equipment. Let's say your social.

The people behind tonight's 60 Minutes
"Listen to what. Chris griggs said on sixty minutes last night. There's no foreign power that is flipping votes. There's no domestic actor flipping votes. I'd better right. We did it right. This was a secure election tonight. Joe digenova who used to be in the nineteen ninety a reasonably respected washington lawyer has collapsed into the point of an i mean mentally collapsed to the point where he said tonight that chris krebs who we just saw. There should be taken out at dawn and shot Now that's the kind of thing that's going to get you disbarred. Possibly in washington dc. And who knows what's gonna be left to rig juliani law license when this is over obviously calling for someone to be shot calling for violence on someone is reprehensible and the idea is that this is part of this. This is what happens when conspiracy theories get out of hand and where you have someone like the president who is has a big bully pulpit a big powerful voice as being president of the united states amplifying and spreading conspiracy theories you have people in lockstep with the president saying crazy things now of course the president is not said that christopher crabs could be shot. That's clear at least for now but what we do know. Is that the people around president. They've all been saying things they're just simply don't make sense. I mean you think about really guiliani and saying that there are dead people voting. You think about Sidney powell saying that there's some sort of venezuelan conspiracy theory and that the venezuelans are behind. Why why the government didn't wasn't able to to have an election with integrity. All of these things are false. This idea that you're calling for christopher comes to be shot is really scary but it just the tip the iceberg so many people who find themselves on the other side of president trump we we all in some ways understand that there is there violent intent behind this you think the fact that these election workers that are just simply counting the votes simply doing their jobs. They are getting death threats. They're having to hire security to to protect themselves. These scary times. And i think that the president Some of this the bucks in some ways talks with the president and his own language but of course that person saying that christopher crevice should be shot that's of course going even farther than president. Trump has gone so we'll have to just watch that space to see what actually happens in that case a on when we look at The trump sorry the biden white house staff announcement today. A jen psaki for example as white house press secretary. That just a typifies. What we're seeing in all of these choices. Joe biden's basically going to people who have already proved they can do these jobs. And many of whom have done a version of these jobs in the past and some in the campaign. And when you imagine a jen. Psaki ron white house. Press briefing room starting january twenty first That is a return to normal. That would have been forgotten If the trump presidency had continued essentially valid point in in some respects. The hiring of jen psaki and the other people on that. Communications team is so unremarkable. Because these are just sorta standard. I'll be very accomplished. In extremely capable professionals in dc on the other hand the point of we have is this current administration which has turned the briefing room into essentially a a chance to spread donald trump propaganda. That is not tethered to reality And so what we have to do. We have to adjust our expectations. I don't want to like lower. The bar too much for gen. No she can clear it but you know we need to have a return of normalcy of backs of information a big In the briefing room. Because that's not just a chance for the president to get his word out. It's a chance for the american public to understand what the machinations of government are doing and what they're taxpayer-funded representatives are doing. And i hope that you know jen appreciates that mission reinstates it and like you said it shouldn't be a remarkable higher but there is a huge task ahead of her not just in advancing clients interest in this case the president but in restoring very either of trust that i think is instrumental to the functioning democracy quickly. Before you go you'll be in that white house. Press briefing room with jen psaki. What do you anticipate Starting january twenty first in that room for why anticipate actual briefings which we have not seen regularly with the trump administration. I expect someone who's gonna come to the pulpit and the accurate and be fair Obviously offering defenses of president-elect fighting then president biden and we're going to of course have tense exchanges. Reporters are always going to be pushing wanting more information. But i think there's going be a level of respect that has not been there in the last four years both with her treating reporters in screaming at them. Criticizing them in the way that we've seen with the trump administration you michelle cinder and sam stein. Thank you very much restoring off our discussion really appreciate it. thank you both.

So we we knew was wrong. Yeah, so where we know that you know makes sense to us that they think it's a good idea but we really do want the user base to be broader and more diverse. Yeah, so you're saying you guys need more men off on the app, right? Yeah, and that's typical for dating. I think I think Emma we've done some research on this but it's it's typically women who go on apps, even we have we have mixers local here in Dallas. It's always, you know, Thirty women like five guys and were like, oh my gosh, we're the dudes. But yeah, that's just the industry but how is covid-19 dove has it increased your numbers since Cobin have started or how has it affected you guys covid-19 increased the numbers. Yeah cold cold it. I think has made people really feel like they need connection. I think that people are now matching internationally, which is fascinating to us. We never even thought that such a thing would happen. But what we're noticing is that people dead. Our country are matching with people in the UK. And so the assumption is that they're they're virtually dating like they're going on a double date through video. So it's it's drastically changed the numbers. It's hard to tell if that's because we've picked up speed as a legitimate company or if it's because of covid-19. Yeah video video is definitely the the big thing that we're going to be focusing on. I mean that short-term long, you know in the in the very very far out future. We really have a vision for for them to be more than just dating app. If we really wanted to be a way for people to just in general be more social because we do feel like people just are less social. Unfortunately. It's it's more difficult to be social. It's very easy to just like stay home and watch a really interesting documentary or not go out. Yeah now I put yourself out there. So we're home to become more of like a community that encourages people to just be more social whether that means you and your single friend are going to this event that we planned so that you can meet other single people from Iraq or as a friend whether it's people who are divorced like you mentioned before or who are widowed who are nervous to get back out there violence a friend to meet new people networking, whatever the case may be. Maybe like the long-term goal is for us to be more than a nap and for us to be a social club, essentially. Yeah. Yeah, that's that's great because I think single people we do need, you know a a club. We it's rough out there. Right? I mean you had a date tonight. I mean it just there's a lot of ups and downs and stuff like that. Yeah. What else am I wrong? I think I think that's it. I think we've said it all honestly. I feel like your app is like I I really like the app and let me be honest. I'm not a fan of Danny. I like like I got on y'all's app and I was like, oh, okay and like I think you know and like I reached out to you know, who it is, or I could scaly. Yeah, and I was like Kaylee would you be interested and then add where you and I have to team up and go on double dates with two other men and she's like real I was like, yes. She's like I was like, okay, that's amazing. Nice. I have one more question though. So it's very difficult to get the word out with any business. Like what are you guys doing to to kind of spread the word obviously visiting us, but you guys doing other things. Yeah, yeah, totally right now. We actually we just came up with a promotion. So we started a promotion last week called Tipsy Tuesday. What we're trying to do is we're trying to grow the money grow the user base without spending a ton of money. And so we are sponsoring a date every Tuesday in New York. That's good. We're doing in New York. We're trying to build density of like in New York right now, So we're sponsoring a date every Tuesday. We pick a match from the New York City metropolitan area and we offer them five different options to go on a double date. So there's that we were trying to promote outdoor data and so they're all outdoor options and the thought behind that is that you know, if people are you know, people will be incentivised to team up front like to ask their friends to join floor plan become their teammates and then the active on and be active knowing that chance that you know, if you are active on the app that there's a possibility that you'll get a free day pass. We have a lot of exciting things that we're offering. Yeah, so that's that's one and then you know, just trying to do like interviews like this trying to get stuff on our social media that gets reposted on other people's social media. That's the key like if we post funny content, especially if we post funny content that kind of content usually gets reposted. So that's a nice life hack. Yeah. I mean also, we we really like use our resources. So we have to have fixed get if you're going to start anything right because people will put you down people also Build You Up people will like your idea people won't like it. So you have to be open to any criticism that you get so we really utilize our friends.

My mom called me and she's like, I can't wait any longer like I was on Elite Daily last night and they wrote an article about dating apps to try and twenty twenty and they listed you first and we were like, oh what wow, that's awesome. We didn't even know that was going to happen because it's like you hustle and you hustle and you don't see it's not fruitful right away. You don't see like the better and then like one day that happened. I'm like, wow, it's not all for nothing, you know? Yeah. Yeah. Well, I have a good feeling about you guys.

"griggs" Discussed on The Date Podcast
"In a place for serious relationship. Yeah, Mom told me this unfortunately, but I found myself in a lot of situations where I would like be talking to a guy that would be like, yeah, just like don't tell anyone that we're talking cuz I also have a girlfriend. Yeah, and I'm like not that kind of girl. So having been the recipient of that I was like, oh like none of these guys are like, yeah. I'm not going to waste my time. I'll just change my date people and not looking for anything serious, right? Yeah dark. Yeah and you know also dating also changes from when you're in college and two now, right cuz I'm sure you guys have different values. Look, you're looking for different things. Right? How's that change for you guys? So I'm so much else shallow now, yeah, like I just found that like I really need to look past like how somebody looks on the outside and I actually think that what I realized in my adult life is that I feel I'm a total total generalization, but I feel that like the most attractive people have the least personality because they don't need to have one. Well, okay. Two people like on like the apps and not you're not saying that both people are attracted you're saying that oh, you know, correct. Yeah, the people who are physically like the most like the most like Proto typically like beautiful like those people like usually wind up not being super interesting to me and I realized that like when people are a little more quirky like, you know, maybe maybe they needed there's some Ordinarily like not be interested in but those people have to lead with their personality. Those people are always better. Yeah, we have to tell jokes and yet get you know, all that stuff right off the top hat, you know, Julie. What about you like how is dating your values changed or what you're looking for changed? Yeah, I would have definitely agree. I'm definitely a lot less shallow for sure. I think that I'm very lucky in the sense that I've dated a lot of different types of people. So I feel like I'm as I have the experience of going on dates with different types people I'm becoming it's becoming more and more clear to me what I'm looking for and what I'm not looking for I think that that is really important and I would encourage our young and single to date as many different types of people as possible cuz you really do learn a lot about yourself and what what you're looking for in your partner. Yeah. Yeah for sure. And so, okay, so you guys are in college. And you're now in the professional world and you're dating and you're on Tinder and Bumble like where what was it when you guys were like, okay, let's start our own app because everything else I guess sucks out there. That's right. Totally. It was when Julie was going to have a clinical rotation for school in New York City. And so she was staying with me for a little under two months. And once you was staying with me, it was this exciting time because we were going to get be together lived together again, like with the first time since college but also as it was exciting for her because she wanted to date in New York. She had previously been in Central Jersey and like, you know, not really having the same opportunities a single people have a New York. So we said why don't we create a shared dating profile and then we can spend time together and date we can socially dead. And so we came home we made a profile that was only pictures of the two us and said swipe right if you and your awesome friend want to go out with me and my awesome friend. And from there. It was like such a positive response that two weeks later. We we were organized as an LLC nice nice date schedule like. Go on and like it's like group profile profile or team profile. So we had okay. So in the first week of us doing this so she took login and so on my phone and on her phone, we're both logged into the account. So we see all the matches. It was so funny and the first week we had seen guys either message like a photo or you know, say something like what's go out. Let's do it. So we were like wait, this is 32 singles already do like the first week in the first week off. Now so we were like matching back and then we were in a group chat with them, but it was like the two of us from Danielle's account and the guy and like we have him sign our messages like from Julie from Danielle because I thought it was calling this an account. So I like to be totally honest I was in I was still in school which was really academically like rigorous and he's rotations and was with Danielle so long, I think we had more fun through the group chat and we really did on the dates. We have like one really interested terrible was it two guys or one guy you guys would go on a date with one guy would like would match with us, but then he would say I have a friend and we would move the group message. We would move the message from the app over to a group text. Okay? Okay. Yeah. So what was that bad experience? We want to hear this. So we went out with these two guys one of them was smoking. Oh Brad Pitt. Yeah, we were we're like shot him in the beginning which I actually hate when girls do that, but we were like no I want an eye on him. And then we're like, all right fine. You can have it. Like we'll see what happen hilarious in the group chat though. He was really funny. Like he was the one getting a stamped about the date. And of course as it turns out the really smoke was like absolutely mute did not have anything to say said four words probably the entire date looked really pretty but had nothing to offer and he was so funny one in the group text know he was just the thought he was like, okay. Okay. I got that kind of thing. But we had an expression for him. That would be he's a noodle. It's uncooked pasta brings nothing to the table page. Throw it against the wall just kind of slides down. So so he was not interesting at all. And then the other one he was dead. Extra he just was over the top and it was was to the point where by the end of day it like there were we felt creepy Vibes thought it was so fun because we had each other under the to be like under the table like like doing tapping each other and like texting each other and like we had like our own little secret language that we came up with before the day. I you know how we were going to end the date and everything. You know, I'm to go it was either I was going to say I have to be up early visit my Grandma tomorrow or Danielle.

Providers so we've had plenty. Oh my goodness. Yeah. I had my first one over the weekend and it was I mean it was as unpleasant as it looks actually took me like in tears crying. I did not cry it just it just felt like the the Q-tip went like out of my brain. That's what it felt like but no I I just was feeling weird and I'm just feeling bad last week and then I was like, let me to get a code of a test just to make sure it was nothing but it was a PCR test guys the yeah. Yeah. Yeah, so the best test to get Yeah, that's the best one. Okay. Yeah, the painful one is the best one. I've had it. technique of the person who's doing because I've had several and it just felt like a little scratch in the back of my throat. I had another person do it and I'm home and was going to like pop out the top of my head. So it really all depends on you know, the nurse I am I do them on Mondays in my office and I'm told that I patience. I'm very gentle. Oh nice, I like that. So if you need a bit of a test, I will I will cross it out to New York. So Emma, what did you what was interesting about your week this week? Anything fall started Tuesday? Oh, yeah. Okay, I refuse to wear pants yet. So I'm just wearing dresses you wearing pants right now or nothing right now. Is that what's happening? I'm wearing a thong. Okay, very funny printed dress got it. Thank you. But yeah now I refuse to wear pants. Yeah. Hm ain't got time for that. Okay. Well, that's that's awful. No other cool things anything for you guys, Julie Danielle anything cool this week. Julie do you want to share what happened right before the episode something really cool just happened. I went on a dead distant date, which I have not done actually in quite a few weeks. Oh, so I was like, you know, let me just go be social and it's fine because at 8:00, I'll be back by 9 cuz at 10:00 I have you know the day podcast and you know the date and I look at my phone. It's hey friendly reminder. We're here waiting and I was like, oh, oh, oh, no. I felt this like Vindication that I knew the time of the podcast. I said, I'm not sure that I thought that it was well granted I said, I thought it was also a different time. But but but I always get everything wrong and she always gets everything right. So I was a little know there was a little piece me that job. Like how I am available. I'm the one who's going to get on the podcast. Yeah. This was a difficult for me as well. And I probably won't sleep for the next three nights but I wasn't trying to like share that part. I was just trying to share the date part insignificant. It is all been erased by the long. Wait a second. Wait a second was it significant or know? That's really mean. I don't mean something person. That was my date with it. Just was I don't care about that now because I am now late to a meeting and I don't I don't do that. So it's hard for me. Okay, perfect sense. I feel like in the grand scheme of things. It's like the day is kind of a little null and void because of like everything else. Okay, Ron X twenty. Well, you take it or something. Like that's how I feel, right? Yeah. What's the date even going? Well, you know, that's we can get into it, you know, so it's super interesting actually is I said I had to be home. I'm heading back to my friend's apartment at 9. I didn't say why which got offered when he said why? Oh, I know that I promised her that I would do something with her which I kept I kept saying because you know, I don't need ever with the fact that I co-founded for play. I don't that's not where I lie on dates. Like that's I need to know you before I share a link to my personal part of my life. So he just thinks I'm a physician assistant which I am but who has to be who has to be back by 9 a.m. So so it wasn't that good obviously. You know it was it was it was a fine first date. We got a little heavy into politics. Oh, I didn't mean for it to go there. The the reason why I got brought up was because we Danielle and I just watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix you guys watch I heard so good. I haven't seen it. We haven't seen it so bad and scary at the same time shows. How you know we are only shown things that we agree with on social media for the most part which is why I like we're all in our own way brainwash cuz we're reinforcing our views because we only see that so I kind of thought you know my audience. I was like, I'm just wondering like, you know did did you vote for Trump in twenty not that matters be able to do what for 2016 and then it started this whole political conversation that like was not that's not what I was my intention was not that but then it when I was just too far in wow, so second date or not sure yet. You know, probably not okay, which I always feel really bad about afterwards because it's it's nothing about okay. So when you a date and then the other person wants a second date and you don't or vice versa you want the second date and the other person doesn't it's so it's sad cuz it's like yeah and you would take away from that is that the person didn't life me which is sad part of dating which is why which was on for Playdate honestly cuz it would have been a way less romantic pressure situation. Yeah. Okay..
This Am a Minstrel Stereotype, Right?
"From New York City this is Lexicon Valley. A podcast about language I'm John Mc, water and this week you know what I'm going to do frankly what I usually do, which is just bring you in what was I thinking about over the past week or two? And it was a bunch of things but I happened to be revising an academic paper that I'm writing and that paper happens to be about black English I don't usually do those but I mean exception with this one because it's a topic that really grabs me and you know when deciding what to do the show about I thought you know I'm going to do what I'm thinking about I. Don't WanNa, do it about Comma Harris or something like that I'm not. Sure. What I could get out of that I wanNA do me and so I'm gonNA share with you some stuff about the always fascinating dialect of American English black. English. It's called by academics usually. African American vernacular English but I have a hard time saying that so we're just going to call it black English and we're GONNA, look at it from various angles that I have been sitting around laying around still in semi quarantine these days and one of the things is. GonNa be the lost. Am That's what my papers about, and this is something that I've brought up on this show before, and that is the question as to whether actual black. American people ever as linguists call it over generalized an in two persons and numbers beyond where it would go and standard English and so for example, I'll tell you I am a person but in characters of black speech back in the day, the idea was that black people used am with all. Pronouns, and so you am this he am that we and the other thing that's something associated with minstrel shows and comic strips, and you would think you would quite reasonably think that that's something that white performers made up as a way of making fun of black people. That's what I thought for a very long time. But after a while various indications seem to suggest to me that actually wait a minute black people did once us am in a different way than mainstream. English does, and of course, it wasn't all black people but there have always been different ways of speaking even here in America and it seemed to me that well, you know as I'm always telling all of you language always changes and black English is no exception and so it seemed to me maybe actually the minstrels overdid it they were characterizing but maybe there was that different usage of an because all these things seemed indicated and in a show that I did. Probably back in about nineteen forty seven remember when I used to be sponsored by kraft macaroni and cheese way back. Then I said that one evidence of this is that there are vernacular British dialects. The US am in just that way you am we am the black country in Britain is sometimes called the people who are the Yam yams and what they mean by that is that they say you am saw gave you some evidence of that but that was that was. Back right after the Second World War and so what about newer evidence? Well, first of all, what do I mean by this as you might call it over generalized am well, here is one of the latest examples of it in pop culture. This is a highly insignificant. Hollywood. Cartoon from the studio that gave us such indelible characterizations as Casper, the friendly ghost and Herman and Catnip who were about the closest thing in real life to itchy and scratchy on the simpsons in. Any case, one of their other indelible characters was buzzy the Crow Buzzy. The Crow was supposed to clearly supposed to be this this black American little character remember the Dumbo crows while Buzzy was an extension of that, and so buzzy uses reflections of the old minstrel dialect. This is a cartoon called no IFS ands or buts, but spelled with two t's it's about smoking and this is what buzzy says about a cat who seems to have a smoking addiction listened closely. Tobacco smoking. To know. That Cat am Am Can am smokin fiend. Okay. So that's the character. But what's interesting is how often you see black American people depicted as speaking that way in many sources that you might think of authoritative and I have something even better than this is going to build up to a big fine. We're we're circling in. We're we're about to find the real thing but some other stuff. That I've found. So for example, there is a novel written by a Black Man, very conscious as we used to say black man eighteen, ninety, nine it's called imperium in Imperio, and the guy's name is Sutton griggs and for whatever it's worth his father was a Georgia slave. So Sutton griggs eighteen nine, he's post emancipation but he would have heard authentic black speech, the speech of. People who were denied education and what's interesting is that in one of his novels he is writing in very serious vain. We would today call him a black nationalist and he has seen where there's a black mother who is being humiliated by a racist white schoolteacher and she's trying to present her child and defend her child and what she says, and this is a black. Writer of black nationalist stamp who grew up with a father who had been at slave and not in New York City but in Georgia so we're talking about wear black English really arose and I WANNA say throws but that's not the were because it's thrived and so he has the mother saying about her child her son, his name and Belton Piedmont arteries, granddaddy arteries after so. Not His name is built in Piedmont his name and Belton Piedmont and she's a character of dignity. His name in Belton Piedmont not is built in Piedmont am. Arteries. granddaddy. What's Ardour ardor is after and shows how authentic this depiction of speech is in that we know that not only black people but also again regional vernacular speaking British people used arter and explains that problem with Jack and Jill. So Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a pail of water jack fell down and broke his Crown Jill. Came Tumbling after what the Hell is. That is that the best they can do of course, not it was Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling out. After, because, after can become after. After that is the way many people in for example, Yorkshire still say after October it's dialectal after and so they're always many people who said after and he came here and often they were either slave owners or they worked alongside slaves and so early biking, which has

Though about how hard it is to find people who want to work on a farm it is and especially like the swampers like the teens highschoolers. They'd much rather not work. Yeah They'd rather go swimming up the Laker that he. It's really hard to find a young kid that wants to work in an orchard. Get their hands dirty. Be Hard all day and were did up at three. You can't find many. I've got cousins. That are having to work for US. And they they like it but it's not their favorite if you're good. How much money can you make during season?

Just hundred and fifty is but our production's gone way up and We nobody would even stop by. We used to have people stop by looking for work now. It's almost non-existent we put up. Are we going to like the work source and put our name out there and say I mean? We've upped our per bucket. Pay The nobody so we gotta we gotTa do this. Or what if you paid even more? I don't know I I hope people would come. I mean I'd much rather work outside than office but we. We've tried almost everything. Ads in the paper Totem put them on and Rondo stores or walmarts or nobody calling my cousins friends. Hey Wanna come come work for a couple of weeks and you can stay out at our place. But they didn't say no. You talk about your dream you know as you continue on with this family farm. Get bigger yeah. Could this issue finding workers keep you from being able to do that? Yeah Oh yeah definitely if you'd almost have to bring a whole probably a couple of hundred to eight and Y'all need housing forum which we had to bus bus amount from Kashmir We bought three buses school buses Just to just to give we even pay people's rent for their housing and that been worked at each day. They're they're here to work and they're slow at first but the they they catch on pretty good just because they're people you know they haven't done this particular kind of work before yeah Some of them have been up here before But mostly they're they're not even that this isn't even their profession. I mean we're contractors or farmers themselves But yeah when they come up here they're kind of like and of course they're far away from home but so from what you're saying that's pretty expensive to do though to bring very expensive. Yeah it's about fifteen hundred dollars a person to get them up here and then the wage the wage they make the housing for which it adds up. But you gotta do that just because there's nobody else. Yeah you gotta you gotTa do it Some people just the farther north the harder gets find people. Yeah you talk about getting bigger just adding more acres of Cherries or do you want to branch out and other stuff. Probably go more into apples. I feel we've got plenty of tears about three million pounds of Cherries. Yeah it's crazy. What kind of apples do you guys have? We got gay Buckeye Gaels high-calorie gala. As Tech Fujii's hike Keller pretty much everything high Keller Hanikra what does that mean? High Color really read more. The older varieties were lighter. Cotton the new ones are Bam in your face. Red and Honey Chris yet. Royal Red Honey Grist the newer version and Sugar BE SUGARY IS. A club variety. What does that mean the warehouse that owns the variety? It's Well so the marketing company owns it but we have to go through our packing house to get it like a proprietary thing where licensed to do. Yeah forget to pay a royalty for the trees and got about twelve hundred bins. Those it's like. It's a really sweet apple. I've seen them in the stores but I can honestly say I've had one. They're very good super sweet. It's almost like candy that now. That's a very good for apple. We I guess. We got some Ambrosia to their grafted ingrains. So you're busy in like June into July with the cherries. And then what? You have a lull in the middle of this out three weeks let me start pairs but think thankfully we only have a little bit? Yeah but then right after pears. Apples gave us an. Let's go and tell About a week after remembered they which is in October last year we went a little late on the Fuji's and Pink Ladies But now I read somewhere that there's some people who had apples. They didn't even pick this year. Was that because of weather. We had a freeze come through and Mike Quincy area and Stephanie. Literally froze And I mean you can't do anything they'll shrivel and AH just no good. Lotta people further did that. That's a late that's right. It's a later variety. Yeah but help was pretty hard this year too so some people were picking with half drew on the bigger orchards to just because they couldn't get enough workers. Yeah and they were paying like thirty five forty bucks a Ben and that's a lot of money. Yeah that's what the state is famous for. What's it like to know that you're raising and providing that food that's world-famous Kinda cool but at the same time it's like it's a task? I mean you got to get a good market and to even hope to make some money but That just we. I think we are the right varieties and the new varieties which people are seeing in the stores and But it's definitely different. You can't have old orchards anymore. You GOTTA HAVE NEW. High-density really high density orchards to to do it. But why is that? Why does that? Why does the density make a difference more bins breaker? Just more volume. People are trying to up the volume and re you can't do like forty bins anchor anymore. You gotta be eighty hundred. Some are at one hundred and twenty. How much is it been way about? Eight hundred to twelve hundred pounds. Pairs are heavier acre. Yeah Yeah you're picking a lot of fruit and it's amazing really don't have it's still pick the same way as it was way back when I mean it. There's no no picking machine atr you still got to have. The bodies and people don't like picking apples. Yeah and it's heavy. Your back is shot. Hard work hired higher work. Your fingers hurt. You're you're all sweaty. You talk about different varieties and stuff. There's been a lot of buzz. About Cosmic CRESP. Yeah anybody doing the hat around here. Oh Yeah We didn't we. We didn't have any acreage to open up for it But yeah we almost everybody north. Planning some that's another one of those like sugar-beet where you have to pay it royalty right. I believe so but I know it's only us in the state that can grow it. The apple rose by. It's a great apple stores really well. It's crisp it's I like it. A Lot Always interesting because you hear the buzz and in public. I always wonder you know. What are the farmer saying behind the scenes on something new like that? Oh this is actually a pain in the butt. It's a pain to open up the land. Get it already by the supplies materials and then plant it and put a new variety otherwise. How long does the planting last in apples? I we've got some trees that are forty years old really some granny treason in our driveway. But do they still produce good? Yeah they're eight bins nacre right now. He's I grant you mean Granny Smith. Yeah Yup the old. I don't like those apples but tart for you. That's what I like about. Really make good pie. But yeah I like Galas Dolan's and Fujii's are my main main ones. What makes a really good apple or for that matter really good cherry? What's the secret to that? Because I know the fruit that we produce here in Washington particularly here in this area when Nazi Rondo is some of the best anywhere. Yeah you need. You need the weather good weather. You need a good micro-climate Where we are in the valley I mean I think we produce some of the Best Cherries in the world. I know it's my family's orchard but I mean we've been we've been in billboards in China. I mean I've seen people fighting over fruit over there. We've been over there a few times.

It's pretty much many son. Yeah on the bottom of the trees like people who use reflectors. When they're out suntanning seen people do exactly exactly like that just on a bigger scale I guess going to be quite the job all putting it out and picking it up.

Somebody Grocery shopping but they should they be looking for when they're looking for. Cherries for instance. Let's check the stems? The stems I wouldn't I wouldn't buy them. What does that tell you as just? Cherries been sitting there for a while. And it's probably really soft and It's an indicator of freshness. Yeah Yeah and check and make sure the stems but not that big not tiny but Or long is this. How how you say the quality of fruit right? Yeah that's how I was taught to look at Fruit. But your thinking of how long it takes you gotta have impact together You get to a fruit until probably a week old. But they hold their freshness probably also should check and make sure it's grown in Washington. Yes check to make sure it's here where competition for you guys. Is THERE FRUIT? That comes in from other parts of the country or the World Series California. Turkey Chili is a big one. Chilly think they they're either picked or picking soon.

"We we we lived and died a little bit too much by quick shots in transition shots and threes early in that temple game which those are great when they go in but if they don't then two things have to happen you've either got to be a great offensive rebounding team to give yourself a second shot opportunities and you got to be able to get back in transition because teams can run so I think we have to continue to learn and grow from from those early mistakes so we don't create a hole for ourselves and then trying to fight from behind is really tough especially when you're you're we have one substitute you're playing obviously without tomorrow shoots so there's a little more expected of shooters like Madison Griggs and I think people would say Matt is the truest of shooters on the team area Wilson said pick up that a little bit more people more willing to shoot when you look at the freshman guards on this team and how they've developed over the course of the year and now being put under a little bit of pressure you know counted on as in a in a six banner seven man rotation what do you think of their development well yeah I think both of them have been really terrific freshman players for us they've stayed healthy all year long did not come will hurt his right they have can have improved from the beginning where Maddie Griggs was earlier in the year to where she is now and just as your confidence and breaking records from the three point line she just continue skiing great experience plan thirty five forty minutes aerial Wilson's been steady Eddie all year long but she's progressively gotten better she's in the gym every day getting extra shots up so I think at some point for Ariel that confidence offensively is just going to click for her and it's different for every freshman but I think both those young ladies have gotten better from week to week and they're getting just terrific experience as freshmen and it's a hard situation right now because we don't have the depth and they're not getting the rest but you know looking long term it's really exciting because those are can be too really great college basketball players when.

"An athlete mind fed to treat his company as a sports team. Now Bill and how he leave and how he goes about business the value here a lot of great creativity than towards you can get from this. Felt we enjoy in. Let's get to it. Dan Did when younger had an athlete. Take a drink. Golden went to achieve when I was younger. Really my my my goes with more so based on like being better than my brothers not an not an jealousy way or anything like that but My my brother's really. You know my family has a lot of really good athletes in it Brothers would a tudor. I really looked took on a dominated in their sports sports. Did they did so When I was younger it was always about competing with my brothers and my brothers were both older than me My older brother is S- three years older than me. My oldest is five years older than me so it was always about you. Know keeping up with them in really trying to be better than him. in a brotherly love zyppah competition thing not more so like jealousy or anything like that but it was always like you know I gotta work to be better than my brothers. So that's how it was when I was coming up in regards to like my goals being an athlete though was it was the football of the back of look at age. Forty even play even. Oh so yeah we we. We always competed in everything. So I mean from from I guess you can say Organizational Sports. It was it was football basketball and track. I definitely got him both in in basketball. They think it's he basketball but football and track definitely older brother he but we both ran. We all ran a four hundred and he had set a record and trying to beat that record which I came close to you didn't end up. Didn't end up beating but You know we competed in sports like that or even just things around the house from wrestling playing dominoes Ono. Anything you can think we're always competing awesome. Their heated to domino games domino claiming down five. We like it was crazy so we're younger. We didn't have domino's in so we love playing so we got paper Nobu paper and cut it up in the little rectangles and had like a whole domino's USA play dominos like that you're already you're already bootstrap up man. You're already been a love it so so when you have this going to be the only guy you want to beat your brother Jonathan Jonathan of that. When did it become? I can be good at at another level were high-school college pro so I really didn't even like transitioning from each outside from from high school to College in Pro From in high school I never really thought about playing Playing College College football until like my senior year. I think it was like really. It didn't really dawn on me until the last game of my senior year. We were playoffs before it was weird like literally during the game. I I was like I want to play college. Football just popped in my head but I didn't I felt I had to. I won't say if I knew I had the talent or not I just this new house very athletic for me. I had a situation to where I ran. I was really fast. I ran a four three or four hundred forty coming out of high school and then my I never received a single a single letter from any college Meters Long Beck in store with that not anything on my end from me not got me getting in trouble or anything like that. But I didn't receive a single letter from any college and so I reached out to a lot of colleges myself I create him on filmed. This was back in two thousand and five so I was Doug and stuff on Ellen on VHS in making bond film and everything is sending out and contact in college but And I won't say that I really put a lot of thought into being like. Oh I know I have the talent to go play. It was just like I'm going to go platinum. Go figure things out so transitioning from high school to College. I chose the college I went to a small three and I went and played it at college and I was actually going to quit my my freshman year. I was such a I was really athletic. Of course really really fast but I was such a small guy. I was getting tossed around a field and saw about the quit. My my my freshman year around about mid mid season and of course I wasn't playing or anything but I told myself I was just like okay. We'll do everything that I can do to put myself in a position to LA's via compete. You know my main problem when my issue was Al just so such a small garner. I wasn't strong so I was literally during this season. I was really literally in a weight room like Tim. Eleven twelve o'clock at night just lifting. I didn't youtube wasn't as big as it is right now so I wasn't looking at workouts from people. I was just doing stuff really a lot of things. I didn't high-schoolers Is Lifting Hours. You gotta get I gotta get stronger And so that was Kinda Sydney over that obstacle August you can say And as would really jumpstarted lot in my career in in in college a huge difference of course is always athletic. Always I was always fast. I still did track In so as I picked up more way more size it wasn't something that took away from ability plan of fields in so as I went through college I wanted to transition play pro football. This is really like I won't say unheard of coming from college but it wasn't a lot of people that really said said they wanted to go to the NFL. I'll put like a lot of people were play pro said they wanna go play pro when playing a arena arena football or semi pro or something like like that but I was like I want to go play in the NFL news it was. I guess he was kind of crazy because I never received a really great stats but we never. We've never won a single game my senior year and I never received a single accolade and so it was like what am I doing trying to say I want to play in the NFL. And so. But I didn't honestly I never even really paid attention to those things. Those things didn't matter to me not that I was just like I'm going to block it out of my mind but I literally didn't think about it. I was like I don't need to have that. I'll figure out you know other ways that I could display my talent and so I actually did get a lot of stuff on my own. I win and I contacted in fields aims on my own. I figured out emails. I figured out phone numbers. I tried automate connections and networking but honestly realistically it. Didn't I mean yes. If you know someone and it's it can be a lot easier but knowing the right person and having a relationship with person too difficult so it was not as is not as easy as it sounds and so I contacted some teams like the Houston. Texans I I got the phone numbers at defensive backs coach and I called and emailed guy like every single day for a week and then on it I think it was like that Friday or Thursday Thursday something like that. He called me back and was like hey dangled his coach. I forgot what his name was at. The moment is back in two thousand five two thousand two thousand thousand nine He was like you persistent gun. I liked it and so I had a conversation a long conversation with him. They had like nine or ten. DB's guys it was hurt you can get into camp was writing Houston so It was only like our away from me but that didn't work out saw winning played arena. Football got on arena football team I got the filmed are needed. That was my only goal. My goal was never to play pro. Football Mugabe Mugabe was the play in the NFL. which is a huge difference You know it's an accomplishment in other people's eyes on both ends but for me. My accomplishment wasn't to play pro football Macabre Schmidt was the plan. NFL So got the film that are needed. I want to bladerunner arena team in Seattle and I winded at the exact same thing. I figured out more emails to coach. It was a lot of staff changes on every on every team which which is a lot of times so I contacted that record player personnel. I figured out emails to about twenty three teams. I sent out all of those emails and then in I may phone calls as well like I literally sat down and went to every single it all thirty two. NFL teams. I looked looked at the roster elected to defend legions of backs that they had and I was like okay. These guys are around. My high mice is my speed or if if they weren't like there was something that had a lot of DVD's on a team and everyone was between six foot six foot three era bigger Gaza. I'm only five eleven eleven and I was like a hundred and eighty five hundred ninety pounds and so I would still because they may have a nickelback and it was a guy that was mainly a cover guy and the reason I did it was because when I sent an email out I was basically pitching these teams in selling myself and I was like you know I think tribute to the team in this way you know this is my speed visited. These are my strength drinks etc and so sent out emails at twenty three. NFL teams as all figure out. And then I got I got phone calls. I got contacted back for about seven teams but I actually got opportunities with two teams. which was the New York jets in Jacksonville Jaguars? The New York jets had the Do a workout for senior needed into him DIPLO personnel. Tom Really liked it. He put me on a short list for anyone who doesn't really know what that is is basically a list that someone gets hurt and camper to bring Gaza enduring account. I'm going to be one of those guys are going to look into bringing in That didn't work out are really dependent on my agent at the time to to stay on top of that which didn't happen but the Jacksonville Jaguars when I sent them an email they cut literally called me like thirty five. Four thirty forty five minutes later in saw get a phone call from them. I have a heck of a conversation with them and they bring me in for workout and discs was like I have a huge imagination. I have massive imagination and I didn't even imagine opportunity being this setup for me the way that it was in so I spoke with them breath during the summertime before camp and they did. There's different at the time. I don't know how to do it now but at the time they did. There's two where they would bring guys in all at wants and it was during the season so I spoke with them. I think from like July all the way until October and they brought me in an October over. This is during season every.
