Hitman 3 Review Round-Up
"Hitman three reviews are and the embargo has lifted. As i let you know. I love you eco. Exo right now has our impressions of roger corner here from kinda funny is already beaten hitman and then it was me and bless you talking about our initial impressions in review so far but the metacritic as it stands which were not and of course is at eighty eight. This is as eight or nine. Am this morning Games beat gave five out of five. Jeffey grub grub rights hitman works because developer iowa interactive bills the games as predictable and rigid machines and as players. We control the key to this machine in asian. Forty-seven io's job is to make sure that when players insert forty seven into this massive cogs moving parts that other parts of the machine awaken in present new opportunities for creativity hitman three in particular works because this machine is more intricate and fund to explore than ever thanks to its incredible levels overnight over an idea dot com luke riley gave it a nine point zero and wrote rich will warning in highly reliable. Hit man three is a superb installment of i os idiosyncratic and much but much love style series. The fundamentals haven't changed since two thousand sixteen but it's collection of outstanding maps for a refined reliable in robust curtain. Closer to the current hitman trilogy. Six maps may sound slim but each one is huge and designed to be played several times over. And even that. It's very unlikely you'll ha- you'll have uncovered all of its creative. It surprising assassination opportunities. There really isn't a week one in the bunch. This barcode butcher has made a lot of appearances over the past twenty years but hitman three is definitely one of his best and then at dual shockers. It got an eight point zero chris. Cornelius rights still the modular nature of each games. Entries means that all three play extremely similarly. Here's of course talk about the them so if you played hitman one or two already you know exactly what you're getting with three there's nothing new or groundbreaking here just honestly though that's perfectly fine for those who like this style of game. As the high quality of level design carries forward. You might not get a wholly original concept or sequel hit ansari. What you will get is the same intricate set of levels. Apply to new areas and concept's whether it's trying to uncover covert operatives in berlin berlin rave or a weaving through the secret passages in dartmoor mansion This these locales and their implementation really are treat. I mean out of jail with game. Play as much as i could have but i certainly loved exploring these areas in plumbing their secrets mr gary widow. What is your history with the hitman. Franchising where are you with hitman. Three my my My history with The hitman series intermittent played the since the very very first hitman gained back in to die. It's a franchise that has has come and gone and has at various different reboots and it seems like re in recent years. It's really coming to. It's the most recent iterations hitman year when they were rolling them out as episodes that was really really popular with people really likes them. I've always tried to get into them. And i've heard something about them just never quite connected with me and i think that's just more to do with that's less to do with the game's not being good games and more to do with him just being somehow like just incompatible with my own tastes gators off you no matter how but i feel i feel like that but not like in a big way is a big disconnect some like. I know. there's a game here that i would really enjoy. If i could just get into it. So i feel like this with this new hitman. Three is the perfect opportunity for me to give it like one more. I'm really gonna try. I'm really going to try to get into. I'm excited about it. I think my wife my About her favorite. Pop the assassin's creed. Games sneaking around us astern people. That's literally all you do so might be it might be hookup as well. I'm very keen to try. I'm also very glad patrick. Click onto the question for me. Hold on because. I think that question might lead into diego's question he wrote into patriots dot com slash. Kind of funny games says hi guys. First time longtime reviews for main three are out and largely positive. My question is simple as someone who never played one of these. Is it worth starting with three or their changes to the mechanics so minimal that maybe i should start with cheaper option of hitman to grabs me from their. Thanks much love. This is a big question. Not just the hitman to the back levels legacy stuff but is hit. Hit me in three a great jumping off point if you've never played before right. This is what you were talking about with club. We and we and we see this every time a big new game series brings out a game right like like one of the most commonly asked questions i've heard in the last year is like where do you start with for example the yakuza games. Many of the right should you. Can you start with like a dragon. You wanna stop zero. Always different ways to get into it. And so i'd every game is different right and every every series is different understand. Why the questions coming from right especially. Since i saw recently that i owe think tweeted something about it. Meant three being the the concluding chapter in a hitman. Trilogy edgy when i when i hear that that makes me a bit nervous like you wouldn't for example to just jump into light. Return of the jet is the first hours from the emerson right. Still be a great movie but a lot of stuff wouldn't make sense and you'd be a bit lost because you know it's picking up story threads been percolating through the previous two films. You would be like who's this guy share. What's going on. And on. I wanna you don't wanna have that feeling but i feel like these days especially we've really games when like years between games. It's it kind of behooves game developers to make sure each new game can function both as the continuation of what's come before legacy players but can also be on boarding can be an entry point for people like you as a game developer or published. You really know helping self if you say oh yeah. This is really only accessible to people who have already played hitman. Because you never gonna grow your your fan vice that what you've got to You you've you've got to have each game be an accessory. An accessible new entry point. And i was very glad to see. Patrick clinic. Asked the same questions anything's into similar position to me intrigued to try. The new one has spent a of time with hitman before. Certainly no up unlike the balaji in the lower. What's happening with like agent. Forty seven's store. I couldn't tell you a single fucking thing about agent forty seven and now he's a ball dude with a barcode on his on the back now and that's nice people is the. Is there much mortar. No probably any of it. But i was very glad to see this morning that apparently a lot of people had replied to patrick and the consensus. Yet you can just jump into say hitman three and whatever problems with like not knowing what's going on so that's what i'm gonna do. I also do have. The hitman wanted to legacy editions. That came whatever deluxe super duper pack. The i got so. I might try those as well but i'm just going to jump into three because that's going to be the one that is most optimized for next gen and like you know it's gonna it's gonna it's gonna have the most valuable learnings from one and two right and i think it's you and me. Gary have a very similar hitman story. Where i remember getting that i hitman. Ips two and bringing it home in popping it. It'd be like oh. This isn't what i thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be more like a metal gear at the time and so i fell off and so every man. That's come but let's talk specifically about this trilogy hitman one and two i pop on. I usually play the first map in the first couple mission. Maybe i into a couple of maybe one more. And i'm like i get it. I see what this game's doing it's not for me like something about it doesn't click and i'm right there with you of like. I know that there is a game there that i could get into but i've struggled to do it and so hit me three. I m coming in very much. And i've played on part of the review on. Ps i love you so far. I'm three missions into the six maps or whatever so there you go it. Was this idea that i'm playing it. I like it. But i don't and i don't and it's the hold up for me is in the over the you know. There's the individual individual maps with your targets and their intricate plots. And what to do. They're right over over. That is layered this the end of the trilogy story. That's happening right. And i think even for me starting at never having beaten hitman one or two but starting those games they do a great job of like. Here's what's happened in the previous games here. Who's these other two players. You're with our this is what's going on. Go for it.

Susan Robertson How to Supercharge Your Creative Thinking by Outwitting Your Instincts
"I'm susan robertson and i'm an innovation strategist for fortune. Five hundred companies. Thanks for joining us today. I'm going to teach you about how the supercharge your own creative and visionary thinking outbidding your instincts. I'm gonna show you how to overcome major creative thinking roadblock that you probably don't even realize you have all humans suffer from a mental shortcut called negativity bias. The negativity bias is the phenomenon that negative experiences have a higher impact on our thoughts feelings and behaviors than positive experiences. So we're actually much more motivated to avoid negative. Then we are to seek out positive and this constant drive to avoid negative. Dramatically affects our thinking in ways. We don't realize because it's all happening subconsciously to illustrate the negativity by a little more. Think about this. If you believe someone had stolen twenty dollars from you. How angry do you think he would be now. Think about if you randomly found twenty dollars in the street. How happy do you think you would be. There's tons of research that shows that due to the negativity bias. We're much angrier about losing twenty dollars than we are happy about finding twenty dollars. Even though the rational value of the money is exactly the same. And that's the negativity bias. The reason this negativity biased is a roadblock to creative visionary thinking is because our brains interpret any uncertainty as danger and the immediate sub-conscious result is to try to avoid that danger ultimately. It's a survival instinct. Thank for a minute about way. Back in our prehistory when our ancestors still lived in caves. Let's imagine a little cave boy will call him grog grog. Here's a wrestling over in the bushes. He thinks i wonder what that might be. Any trots over to investigate it was a giant reptile and unfortunately grog is dead. Now think about a little cave girl. We'll call her lucy. Lucy here's a rustling over in the bushes to but listen. Thanks ha bat. Might be danger. And she runs away and ultimately lucy lives to pass on her jeans to all of us so us are descended from people who ran away from uncertainty and that instinct to assume uncertainty is. Danger is alive and well in all of us today. Our immediate subconscious reaction to any uncertainty is to assume it might be danger. We have a really common phrase that we all say when we hear or think of a new idea that very effectively kills new ideas instantly and that phrase is yes but whenever we hear a new idea or even think of ourselves our brains instantly focus on all the potential dangers. Yes but it's too expensive. Yes but it will take too long. Yes but the sales team won't like it. Yes but it won't work in our existing t system and on and on the problem with this is that it's exceptionally easy for us to identify lots of reasons why any idea might not work and it results in us most ideas before we ever even examined. If there's anything good we just reject them the moment we discover a potential problem because that yes spot is laser focused and lightning fast. The sba is so common that we don't realize how poisonous it actually is but it effectively squashes all creative thinking it. Squashes your own creative thinking when you say it or think it and it really squashes in a creative thinking from your team when they hear it from you so you need to wipe it out of your vocabulary seriously just hit delete on the yes but and that sounds like it should be easy but actually it's quite difficult because you have to circumvent an instinctive sub-conscious instant process that goes on in your brain. So that's the bad news. The negativity bias is never going to go away for any of us but the good news. Is we absolutely can retrain our brains to get around it. And i'm going to show you a neuroscience hack that will help you defeat your negativity bias. Time i call this thinking tool. Gps thinking and gps stands for great problem solving the trigger to know when you need to turn on your gps thinking is when you hear or think or say yes but when someone has an idea and you have to make a practice of noticing that yes but trigger by the way now that you're aware of it you're going to be shocked at how many times you say it or hear it every day. Once you've recognized that subconscious but process has kicked in. You have to now interrupt it with the conscious. Gps process. I'm going to give you the three steps of the gps process. And then i'll give you an example to illustrate step. One is g great. The first thing you want do is list anything. That's potentially good about the idea. What's interesting what's valuable. What's getting toward the goal. What's new were different about it. And this g great part is the part that your brain will naturally skip if you let it so you have to not let yourself skip this step g. Great step number one then step. Number two is the p. problem. Which is where your brain has been trying to go but instead of simply stating the problem. There's a critical difference here and that critical differences. You need to flip that statement into a how to question so instead of saying it will cost too much instead you say. How can we make it more affordable or instead of saying it will take too long instead you say. How can we do it. In the time that we have to p problem articulated in the form of a how to question. And then you move onto s solving. So now you solve for those problems you found in the idea by changing the original idea but keeping something about it that you thought was great from g great list. I'm going to give you an example. So let's say you mentioned to your friend you've been feeling a little extra tired lately and doesn't seem to be due to lack of sleep and your friend says Have an idea for you. Take a break every day in the middle of the day and take a two hour walk. That's what i do. And it seems to really help and your brain instantly focuses on all the yes buts in that idea. All the potential problems. Yes but i don. Tom i have too much work. Yes but i have to help kids with their homework. Yes but i have to have dinner ready. You focus on all the problems. That's your negativity bias kicking in and it starts with yes but so once you've realized that the yes bet is kicked in you go through the process in g great. You list anything about that idea. That might be good. Well exercises good. Taking a break during your workday is it. You'll be more focused when you come back to the work and you'll feel more refreshed so there are things in that idea aspects of that idea. That are good. And that's what you want to draw out in the g. Good step and once you've done that you move to step two p. Problem and you articulate those problems now in the form of a how to question so instead of simply saying i don't have time instead you say. How can i find time for exercise or you might say. How can i find time to take a break in my day or you might say. How can i find more time to relax. So i can sleep better so that. Step two problem but articulated in the form of a how to question and the you move on to step three which is solving and you solve for those problems by changing the original idea so you might say the the problem you wanna saw four is how to find more time in your day for seven exercise so you might say well. I don't have a two hour block. But i could find a few fifteen minute blocks and in those fifteen minute walk. Take a couple of laps around the house. Or i could run up and down the stairs five times. So you've changed the idea. You've you've moved away from a to our walk and you've modified the idea to be a few fifteen minute walk so you've solve for the problem but you kept something that you thought was good. Which is both exercise breaking your day. So that's the gps process. I'll quickly repeat the steps g good. What's potentially good in the idea. Knowing it's not finished p. problem articulated as a how to question and ask solution solve for those problems by changing the original idea but keeping something that you thought was great

Iran Is Escalating Its Nuclear Program
"Iranian government has resumed enriching. Uranium in one of its underground facilities. The order reportedly came from president hassan ronnie and it again breaches the terms of the thousand fifteen iran. Nuclear deal agreed on by numerous world powers. President trump withdrew from the deal in two thousand eighteen. Nancy walk us through. What's important here. What is the significance in. Help us with this idea that it's increased its levels to twenty percent purity. What does this all mean. Sure so under the twenty fifteen deal. It had a three point six seven percent cap and now the running governments said that as soon as possible. They want to get to twenty percent. The reason that's significant is to build a nuclear weapon. You have to be ninety percent now. Ninety percent sounds like A big gap. But it's much more difficult to go from three point. Six to twenty once you get past at twenty two ninety is easier or so say the experts i will defer to them and so the reason. This is caused such anxiety because this is the biggest breach of byron its commitments under that deal and so the question becomes. Why are they doing it. Part of it one could argue is that this is in response to the assassination of its top nuclear scientists. This is when the running government purse. Pass this law. It appears to be A way of building negotiation leverage ahead of the incoming biden administration as you recall president elect biden has said that he wants to Enter into that deal again. Assuming that iran is willing to comply. And i also think that there's an element of Answering to domestic audiences. This came at the same time that there was the anniversary of the one of the death of qassem sulamani by us. Drone strike and bag died in their heightened tensions between the two countries and congratulate you that this was a way of sort of iran. Reasserting itself that. It wasn't gonna be bullied by the usa in its To keep a carrier strike group in the region to send b fifty two bombers and so the totality that has led to A really major escalation in terms of capabilities towards an a nuclear weapon. So nancy. this is the million dollar question. What is all this mean about what we know of how close iran is to creating a nuclear weapon or do we assume it has one already well. The the challenges we don't ha- they didn't announce a time. They they said as soon as possible and they alerted the Of its intentions so the question becomes whether it Can do it in a in an until what time now to be fair. One could argue that they can turn this back just as quickly. So if this is towards reaching leverage vis-a-vis the incoming biden administration. You can see this pulled back almost as quickly as a as the announcement was made the challenge becomes if you start to see countries seeing this as a real threat or real movement towards building nuclear weapon particularly israel remember a decade ago when the writings were moving towards us they hit there was almost a strike campaign that was triggered by this. Then you have a different situation. So it's if it's a move towards leverage it's a very risky
Ted Danson Is the Mayor of Los Angeles in New TV Show
"Mr mayor is new. Show from rubber karla faye and features a lot of fantastic people and the featuring of a lot of fantastic people is reason to watch it. It's ted danson as the new mayor of los angeles and this is just another one where we're timing is so bad really You know if you are in los angeles you are well aware of what having a somewhat. Bumbling somewhat ineffectual mayor or even having let's just say a mayor whose track record is mixed. Let's just say that. Let's say. Garcetti did some things that the beginning of the pandemic that seemed to be good and then not so much lately. That's an it is it. I'm trying to be tempered. We've definitely had a lot of evidence of what happens in a major city if the mayor is not perfect and so i found myself really kind of unable to laugh at a show where it's like. Ha ha ha. The mayor of los angeles is job is to go to mall. Openings and celery appearances your results on that one may vary as los angelino or at least a los angelino transplant. I also kind of got the feeling that tina fey and rubber karloff. Not so much with the knowing. Anything about los angeles and twenty twenty. The jokes are all really really lazy. Really really facile jokes about california. That in some cases are are two decades old our colleague. Ingo king reviewed it for us and she notes that one of the funniest jokes involves the other candidates who run for mayor against ten danson's character and you stop and realize that the joke that's being made about the other candidates including gary coleman's ghost and a libertarian. Porn star all relate to a recall election. That was fifteen years ago. I mean that is just not finger on the pulse and so all of these things if the show were funnier. It'd be funnier but let's not forget that. Mr mayor was originally conceived as thirty rock spin off that was going to be set in new york featuring alec baldwin reprising his role and baldwin was negotiating for the better part of a year per sources and when he backed out producers went out to ted danson. Ted danson lives in los angeles and did not want to relocate to new york so they moved the show to los an- to being set in los angeles and removed any traces of of its ties to thirty rock. So there's that in the back of your mind
What happened in Washington DC yesterday? A timeline of insurrection
"With runoff victories. In georgia meaning democrats are set to take back. The senate spent yesterday morning interviewing cliff. Albright an activist. Who helped turn out a record breaking number of georgia voters. It was a great conversation. Warm bright and then all hell broke. Loose sleep had a couple of reporters covering events in washington on the ground. One was embedded with the rioters who breached the capital and other was inside the chamber itself with the lawmakers. So we're going to tell the story of what happened from each of their perspectives. And we're going to start with ayman is my. I got there early. I got to the ellipse park. Just south of the white house. Amen was in dc to cover. What started out as protests. He is like you're hip photographer friend. He's undaunted casual and it makes it easier for him to sign up to all kinds of people and ask them questions. I would say that the mood was a people were happy. If felt like everyone had on their cool like trump swag and they were showing it off. You ever go to comic con. It really felt like comic People had sake trump faces cutouts. People had their favorite slogans all on their favorite t shirts. I would say ninety five percent of everyone who was there was like white maybe nine maybe ninety just to be generous here and my plan was to just talk to people get to know them. I wanted to know if i could get some closure on the trump era. This felt like this was the last opportunity to really talk to trump supporters at home where they're comfortable wearing their colors talking about their opinions. I was trying to do is. I was trying to have these conversations where i can be candid. They can be candid. It's not so hostile. The stakes don't seem so high. So i was able to do that with a bunch of different people which was satisfied. You know felt good one of them. One trump supporter looked me in the eyes and said jesus christ has come down and make it happen for years of trump is is still required. It's biblical i think. Yeah in what way do you think. I think that he is just in to be to have a second term as the confidence note. I'm talking about the confidence. It was crazy i like. I like to joke with my the people that i interview Just to kind of get them comfortable. And i talked to this one lady. I said she was kind of walking past me in the march as it. Hey do you mind if i get like click quote from you on. I don't want to hold you hostage though you're allowed to say no and she's like ha if you're holding me hostage gun and shoot you and i said you don't actually have a gun do you. And she said haha. I'm not going to tell you. And kinda liked walked off southlake own shit. Nobody actually got people probably brought their pistons of shouldn't so i kind of hung out over there for a long time of until trump's speech where he told his audience that he was going to no capitol building to protest the electoral college certification. You're going to walk down. Pennsylvania avenue i love pennsylvania and we're going to the capital and we're going to try at that moment. People didn't even wait for him to finish his speech. They immediately started marching leaving the lips park and going towards the capitol building so then we get to the steps of the capitol building. There's like this huge sculpture right on the front beautiful marble in his covered head to toe with trump supporters. Make climbed up the thing. They have their flags there screaming. Stop this deal. it's crazy. I've never seen people. Climb up on the memorials like anywhere in dc. We could do that to be honest. So i i go up the stairs i get to the door i'm trying to kind of maneuver my way in. There's like maybe four or five cops at the door for trying to keep maybe five thousand people out which is insane but then the trump supporters just ripped it out of their hand overpowered them and overwhelmed them. and we're able to force themselves inside and at this point unlike end the door in the doorway. I can see inside. I hear when cops say to the other. Look there's no way we can stop this. We just have to slow it down right and at this point it was like comfortable. You walk inside. There's no police presence you. You're surrounded by all of these famous paintings and sculptures that you've only ever seen textbooks like this is one of the most important buildings in the country but inside it just feels like a like trump playground. They were using it as their jungle. Gym they were flying around like having the most fun. It was very much a a celebration of trump on the inside of this building that it was a celebration of on the outside. The moon was definitely high. You know every once in a while people will start chanting stop the steel and the obligatory usa usa but for the most part people were taking pictures. People were happy to be on the inside. They were saying that this is their house. They were joking about how their tax dollars pay for things and every time anybody break something like the windows or doors or any of the various things that they destroyed on the inside they would make a joke about it and say hi our anyway we can do with it. What we want
The View From Beijing
"Things here in new york city where i live were terrible really tense. Covert cases and deaths were rising fast and it was clear that new york and really all of the us. We're gonna have to endure a lot of restrictions on life in the economy in the coming months and speaking with. Dan gave me hope back then because beijing which had been hit with covert earlier in the year was already coming out of. Its own tough lockdown and his. Dan told us at the time. It's definitely a big relief to see the city. Getting back to normal and i think people are extra glad to be outside plus. Dan even offered some parting words. Optimism for the rest of the world based on his experience washer has a void crowds. And this will probably get better of course things in the. Us only got better for a few months in the spring and summer before there was a massive new spike of covert cases in hundreds of thousands of deaths from covid. It's just been devastating year but things have been different in beijing and across china a of aggressively isolating people with covert cases travel restrictions technological surveillance and other tactics that are a lot more invasive and controversial than anything that was likely to be tried for example in the us or europe led china to effectively. Stop the spread of covid so today on the show. I am speaking with dan again to catch up with him to see what life has been like in beijing since we last spoke in march and the see especially how different it seems from life in the rest of the world then we last spoke in mid march and of course things in china have been a lot better when it comes to cova then things in the us and in europe and other parts of the world. What is your life in beijing. Been like since you. And i spoke card. If you know my life in beijing has been pretty much the same as how my life hop back in march so basically. According to the official numbers released by the chinese government the virus have been pretty much completely decisively beaten back by april and so really since april. There's been just a steady loosening up of all of these different restrictions that we last spoke about in march. I spent a month in hot shanghai which has been ha- Over september which has been broadly open. And what. I found really studying there. Back in september was that everybody was taking meetings. Everybody was taking business meetings. Plus again people were having coffee. People were having all lunch. I gave several presentations to different folks. On the things i was really struck by was that everybody was out to shake my hands on this is this is one of these weird things i thought as i. Maybe we should stop this sort of thing guys. Usually i try to try these things into fist. Bumps sort of funny how you know the culture that didn't invent handshaking is now perpetuating a tradition. That kind of now seems a little bit barrique. Is that weird and danner there. Any lingering vehicles to normal life in beijing even though the spread of covid has been successfully slowed. And if anything. It's been kind of stomped out in beijing. Just a few left card have so these include Basically still fairly regular temperature checks. When i go to places like the mall when i go to my office when i go to the grocery store mask wearing still pretty universal him beijing i think around ninety eight percent of the folks salt walking around the city. Now it's not quite cold. Her wearing masks around minus five. I think everyone is nervous. About cove has fell as the flu season. And then the other big thing i think is thought Most places Aiko i have to flash a contact tracing app. I have installed on my phone. Basically show a green button to make sure that i have not been to any off. High risk areas are recently. There are broader travel restrictions. In that. if i leave the country it is really really difficult to get back into china. These are basically only still left. That i have to deal with in terms of covid. Dan was there anything about the way that china went about fighting. Covid that you found or still find to be very invasive in may be bothered you. i think. The biggest part of china's response that was critically effective Is the system of centralised quarantine. It imposed this is a centralized quarantine system in which got people in two stadiums and that was a fairly invasive procedure but yet. In retrospect this sort of thing Seems like extremely effective at actually Stopping out the virus on march twenty six. The chinese government announced you know with no warning that no foreigners are able to enter the country again. If you had valid visas to visit family to visit for business here all of that was just suddenly cut off by march. Twenty six and china also limited the ability of high even chinese nationals. Also enter the country by limiting the number of flights here so i think the travel restrictions. I think has been a really important part of basically china's response of stopping out covid. And i think that has been a major factor in stopping the introduction of new cases. Even though that has been a highly disruptive on a lot of folks who live here. Who work dan when we spoke in march. You said that you had gained a kind of newfound appreciation for the physical world. The tangible world relative to the digital world. And i'm wondering if that lesson stock or if now it started to kind of fade away because life has returned to normal for you analysts in part on china's heavy industry so you know the bigger the machines the heavier of the machines the pedder has. I've always thought most people are stuck at home. You know people. A lot of people like to say that they really want to watch netflix. On the only sleep and more. Now i feel that that's fun for a couple of weeks but really what you want to do is to get back engaged with the world again. Going hikes meet with fries and you know get out of the house and not simply consume digital products. Were bugs or even podcasts. All day long. And i still sticking with my idea thought in the material world is really really important and we should all be engaging with it a lot more and last question dan. What's been your reaction to the news that a vaccine seems like it's on the horizon you know increasingly not just in the us but in other countries throughout the world and also in china pau gasol. It's really great to see these vaccines with such high levels of efficacy. And so what i am keen to see is how quickly that Manufacturing can be scaled up how quickly that be distributed I think it's certainly important to make sure that this gets distributed quickly so that You know the quick work of scientists can actually be a really effective here and any parting words from beijing for our listeners. In the us in other parts of the world straight to you wear masks if you can
Science From Curiosity And A Little Paper
"These days news at stanford but growing up. He felt alienated by the way science was being taught at school. You know what we were. Learning in school was nothing personal. I mean it was on language. That was not my mother. Tongue is spoken. The at that time and much of this content was in english. Much of it was discovered and oriented not in my context. Yeah much of it. Field so alienated in a way. That i was told what was discovered but not how so i really i mean going back i think about it sometimes. I've really flipped my mind about education. And that's what he spends time working on projects like the full scope as the name implies the whole deal is anybody can assemble the full scope from a piece of paper complete with some magnetic couplers and then there are microlenders and so then venue full the sheet using origami all of these lenses actually align in a way that you can then insert any traditional slide and there you have it a portable soup all for less than two dollars and the point about having a tool that so accessible is when you have an idea. It's essentially important that the barrier for testing your idea should be very minimal. And that's what the fold scope actually allows you to do right. That's what it allows you to do. It really truly lowers the barrier of inquiry. Yeah i mean. I just think of it as full scope is a window into a genuine aha moment and you know i don't have to explain. What a genuine. Ah ha moment when you have one you will truly be jumping up and down telling everybody you meet like when you're having pizza and you literally saw what cheese is the microscopic scale. Just genuine moments are so delicious. I that's the only way to describe it. I like it. i like it. You've created or helped create online communities where people can upload their notes and what they've found using the full scope. Why why was that. An important part of it yes. I think it was extremely important to me at that time when we were starting the community that the idea of communities actually almost as powerful or even more powerful than the tool itself because tool is a way to go on a self exploration journey a community allows you to have mentors. I mean i've often said this. Weekend manufacturer microscopes. I can't manufacturer mentors. Mentors belong in communities around the world and our ambition truly has always been in this part buron to reach every single child on this planet but to think about building such ubiquitous tools. You really have to think about equality and access and sharing them. Mary broadly and creating mentors for people that don't exist and i think i always felt this idea for war. You know when. I was a little child. My brother was listening to me. And whatever i d i had he would just take time and listen and most often when i think about when you don't have mentors in your life you feel wise lewis. You might have made a silly observation. You might have made an important observation. It's only that teacher that just gives you that attention to say That's actually important. Yeah so let's talk a little bit about that accessibility and and making it so that you know all different types of people can participate. I think people intuitively know lake. Science should be for everybody. Let's talk about why it's better when there are all types of people there in the room. Yeah i mean. I think it's there is a very practical way of looking at it. We are dealing with planetary scale problems. Just when you talk about climate change you talk about environmental challenges. Biodiversity loss we talked about health of people around the world. We are operating and seeing these challenges at a scale that we have never appreciated before so a global citizens really focused on not just reading and appreciating signs but doing science to me is almost an essential part of how we will both have is on our planet to truly understand what happens when changes occur on the other hand. You know ideas are come from anywhere. Existed remarkable to think about. And frankly. I've come this opinion that it has nothing to do with your formal education ideas. Lie in intersection of people being able to connect pots and

Rita Ora sorry for birthday party that broke lockdown rules
"Now for some breaking news. Was she wary. Where was she seen she posted. Why on instagram. Who clean gone too long pause. What's rita ora up to. Who is this woman. We've never done this before we've never opened with what's read or up switching the order of the show were doing top down instead of bottom up. No we're doing bottom up top down bottom up and as we've said a few times in the past month or so rita's back to normal. You know the world isn't back to normal but reed is back to normal. Were sitting about it and yet now i'm like regret now like we jumped the thrill she was getting. We were thrilled. That she was getting The same number of headlines that she used to get however we didn't want her to get these types of headlines. Oh no this is very bad. So celebrated bad parts. Don't throw your own bad party. It's funny because when. When i saw that she was turning thirty i felt a little pang of leg odds tube-like turning thirty like this time like that's that's more rain could feel bad. Yeah for somebody who loves to party. She loves to party but she something happened here. And she's now in a lotta deep water. She's on the cover of the sun so when she turned thirty. This is what we thought on. Saturday night was at saturday night. That her she posted at thirtieth birthday video that her team made her. Were all these important people in her. Life mcwhirter happy birthday. Big jazz. host of it was just so many people i mean. It's dozens of pete. That's what we thought we were going to be talking about today. That's exactly what o our michael caine star studded video incredible. Here's who's in it. We identified a lot of these people even though it was very difficult and then and then this happened sunday night. We'll saturday night. saturday night. Rada had a birthday party that was like a fake up or they. So i think that a lot of people are doing this and this is not just celebrities. This is normal people. They're showing the world one thing on instagram than they're doing something entirely different offense to graham serena showed me beth so rita showed a thirtieth birthday party that was very small and cute in her apartment in her flat. There were balloons on the ceiling. She watched the video. You could tell there. Were a couple other voices in there. She showed this big spread of desserts and it was like look at this cake. I'm gonna eat it all by myself. Ha ha ha. So it's very like this is how i'm celebrating in these times. But she also had a thirtieth birthday party at a fancy restaurant in notting hill. Yeah and it looks like she just hossack rented the space definitely because there were people bringing in liquor and ice and so it looks like she just rented the space and had over thirty people. And it's apparently against the law to even have like more than one person outside of your household and there are more. Their lockdown laws are more We have some to here. But there's more and they're more will get you your name. They're more like actually taking this seriously but also like they should take rita ora doing this more seriously than anyone because again. She's a public figure. And this shit's going to get photographed. What i'm confused about. And i wonder what you think is like. Did somebody call the paparazzi. Like who how. What's the deal with that like. There were lots of photos or photos of the cops getting there and being like What's going on in here. You know like literally. They had photos of the whole shebang. People going in people going out. Rita going in rena going out and i just wonder like for rita we've already said like. Oh you know. She calls the paparazzi. But like you wouldn't call the paparazzi on your own like a legal birthday when you're doing something like flagrantly illegal but this dead. Maybe not someone whether it was someone at the restaurant a neighbor because it doesn't look like these people they're like they're actually sneaking and they're going back doors like it doesn't look like they wanted anywhere right there and also looks it also looks late as hell like it doesn't look. It doesn't look just like nighttime. It looks like it's late really fucking stupid like i. Not that. I want people to like you know flout these rules or whatever but it just looks. They did it. The stupidest way that i could imagine doing this type of kind of activity Are photos all over the son of like police officer showing up in peering into windows. They're blurry paparazzi time photos of her sister and that guy vast morgan showing up with arm. Loads of prospero tequila articulate brand. Poppy delevingne kara levin. A lot of people. I can't recognize among the thirty so if we have photos of those we have photos of the people people knew you know but there are twenty eight other people who weren't photograph because i guess they weren't important enough to be photographed. Her hat to have photographs. Patty love to identify those people. So according to the loss this is what it says in the guardian england's national lockdown which ends on tuesday which is like ria you could of waited it's against the law to meet more than person you do not live with acceptance specific circumstances. Police have the power to break up gatherings issue fines of up to ten thousand pounds for breaches of regulations so she just voluntarily pay according to the sun this morning. She just voluntarily paid ten thousand pounds. She was like you know what. Here's the money police. Stay away from me. I'm so sorry alone. She's on the cover of the sun with a mask on in a big firm furnish coat that says read a party. Cheater was a really good. That was a really good line in the sun that said bang out of ora. Rita ora slammed she flouts lockdown laws. With thirty thousand. I was like bang out of something. Must be a british slang and it is. It's bang out of order which means someone is like acting a mess acting fool. You're being unreasonable. Your bang out of order posted a apology already on instagram winch. Is you know she said hello. I attended a small gathering with you through the gathering rita. You through the party. It was it was a spur of the moment decision. No it wasn't. It was a party that you through a birthday party made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown. This would be okay. You were but few days later. Sorry i've commentary for all this. I'm deeply sorry raking the rules and intern understand that. This put people at risk. This was a serious inexcusable. Error of judgement given the restrictions. I realize how responsibilities actions and i take full responsibility. I feel particularly embarrassed knowing firsthand. How hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to help. Keep us all safe. Even though. this won't make it right. I want to sincerely apologize.
UK Higher Education News: The Chancellor's Spending Review
"Stop this week with the spending review. You trialed financing on jobs and jabs helen. Richey cena deliver a shot in the arm for ha setup setup spending review for the next year and we probably already had a good idea about some highlights public sector pay infrastructure investments in the office overseas aid budget. But i mean the review outlines that ambition for the uk to become a scientific superpower and this fifteen billion to be invested in r. and d. next year lots of things around uplift for uk our national academies commitment to build a new science capability and also to establish a new unit for commercializing research. An and this is all really good news for universities in general and it will you know we it will really help us to play our parts in contrbuting to the post pandemic economy and also for an institution like kale. It's really important that we're involved in the level pagendam and this also welcome commitment to unspecified amounts funding to support the preparation for domestic alternative to rasmus. Plus if we need but but outside that focus on research really isn't much to say about higher education There's a lot of attention given to the jennifer skills and i'm further education and there's a tantalizing suggestion of something around a flexible loan entitlement which i'm looking forward to but no order if you know. Fa or h. e. white paper no mention of the pace review or taff and to be honest. I'm relieved know that there are versions of all of these things kicking around government. And there's no doubt in my mind that major disruptive changes is on is on its way to higher education and last week's office shoots consultation on quality and standards gives us a hint of of what might be about to happen. But i think we could probably all do with a short period of just adapting to what the pandemic dealt delta's before we have to start worrying combat. The next thing.
'Stepmother' is No Dirty Word to Lisa Edelstein
"When. I met my husband. He had only been separated for about seven weeks. Wow wow seven Was like it was like textbook bad idea. But yeah when you meet that person and it's like so clear on so many levels all those problems don't matter So the hardest thing about it for us was that i was living through the trauma of their divorce with them and and it's traumatic for everybody and it was a as as always a long time coming. A lot of things had built up to that moment in time and the kids were really really confused and spun out And one of them was having really violent temper tantrums and like really hard time justifying so when i stepped in both parents were in a chaotic state of mind because like every their whole lags had turned upside down and So when i stepped into this family which was sort of like. You're you're inter you're out from day one because you can't you can't like casually date somebody who's got to really little kids and age of trauma happening It's either. You're in your out. So because i recognized in robert my husband who he was and what a good match we were it was just like i'm on. I'm the grownup i i can do this. So it definitely. It was challenging for a lot of years because we are fifty fifty with their mom. We have very different households. But the kids needed parenting. Both households and my husband could do by himself and so initially was really hands on for me and then as things settled down I could sort of take a backseat. My husband at sort of Facility i could facilitate his parents so it kind of mutated over time like you have to be really open to what the needs are but also the kids you know like the kids go to school. The sunni landmines. The kids will go to school at their first divorced family in there because they were very young on they were nursery school and kindergarten. They wanna just trans rain. One had just turned five and so they were trying to figure out what their family was. Now And they decided they had they were like the families that had two months which are lesbian they had seen. Lesbian couples are not divorce and of course that language is very triggering for their mom. But that language didn't come from me so like these. Landmines exist the. It's so complicated. And then she would have like a big reaction something that i had no control over So there is a lot of negotiating long away. So you know you're an relationship with the parent that you're not in a relationship when you ha- when there are kids involved And you as a step parent of young children you have to show up one hundred percent as a parent and you have no language you have no name especially you're unmarried so you are parenting one hundred percent and you're not allowed to be officially a mother and you're not married united stepmother and stepmother has all these negative connotations from story books so it's a really interesting problem to have now. The kids are much older. It's is very different experience but back then it was really difficult
Security awareness and culture with Jinan Budge
"We'll just get started and jump right in This is a question that actually came in during your keynote and this is from emmanuel and he's asking One of my teams priorities for the next year and beyond is maturing our organizations security culture. There's been a lot of discussion about how to measure culture and changes to it. What are you seeing. As the strongest indicators of culture change and how to organizations like mine report progress on culture to for example an executive team k at festival emmanuel. Congratulations for getting to a point where you are considering measuring your culture. I think that's the such a significant point to get to in an organization to measure the security culture On our i've just listened to greece's amazing session and honor he had Some perspectives on definitions of culture. of show. bruce you'll be able to share with us Definitions as well as measurements from my perspective. I want to talk about some of the more practical elements of measuring the culture. Some of the trends. That i'm seeing. I'm definitely seeing a lot of trends in cultural assessments on the market at these tools That a currently being deployed to measure culture. There are tools that are being measured That are being used to measure behavior on all really exciting again. I'm thrilled to see us. Move away from that. You know measuring how many people have completed their security awareness. Training call saul how many people liked it like what. What is the actually giving us. Some not wasn't request show. But i think there's been an evolution so really happy to see that we're starting to measure behavior that again if i move onto i just wanna share a personal example And it was from a particular organization and a particular transformation that i went to conduct at that particular organization. And i remember when i first walked through the door. This wasn't just a cultural project. It was the entire cybersecurity program. And i remember going in and no one wants to know about security. No on we would have meetings and out walk into a room and people would literally either law and they'll go ha ha cyber cyber. What is this thing all. you know. they'll stop making gun gestures or you know they just. The whole thing was hilarious as we started building a brand building. The culture socializing with stakeholders. It was so interesting. How much changed. And it got to a point. After one one and a half years where i'd walk into a meeting room and people would have a cyber safety moment and i love that it was such an intangible thing it was certainly something that we'd never intended to measure but to me. It was such a strong indicator of what a cultural jenny that we had all been on on the subject of savage security and some other ways. You know if you do want to get specific about this. I think one way you can see. If you've changed the dial you can have a look at things. Such as how often is your size are being invited to present at board meetings. How often is the security team. Being engaged how engaged is your organization with you about the topic of security for me without getting into definitional topics. I just think some of these less tangible things are so telling of how far you've come in a year's time on our is challenging kozaru that boards and executives are they challenge you and they see other organizations saying how many phishing attempts you've blocked etc etc so you do have to give them whatever it is. That's on their mind and demonstrate that but also just keep on thinking bigger picture an aim high on that one.

And the fact that I take care of myself with it. I get fired for that. You cut off a little bit. I. Heard the gist of it. You've been fired from jobs for revealing that you have a learning disability. That I have. Witnessed what is the most recent time that this has happened? And that's recent time. happened. was. Out then. Thousand Two thousand twelve. I know, I'm sorry. The most recent time was like two thousand sixteen two thousand sixteen. Okay Yeah I'm not sure of statutory time was to make a claim there but I mean, yeah. I. Would think that that's some sort of violation I. Would think that. Conditioned would potentially be a protected class, right? And that yeah that you could have a case if if if you're fired for that reason. Accommodations are set up all the time for people with with various. Conditions and whatnot. Yeah they're protections afforded for as your Commonsense Attorney Kid Chris I say go get a job with a gigantic company and hope that they fire you. So you can sue them 'cause they have deep pockets. Yeah. Right. What's wrong? Oh my goodness that'd be awesome. See the real attorney here God bless the Mayor Haida tape of this when that happened. So it'll be available a kid Chris Dot Com. Yeah. You just gave the defense attorneys a big. Assist their. Chris. Well, she's not faking that she's. got a issues and if she gets fired. There's whether there's taper not it's real. Are you are you gainfully employed right now? Good, good at a cup companies doing a nice job taking care of you and make sure that. Everything's good. So far yes. I haven't had I haven't had an issue where I have to reveal it to them and I basically nervous about that and whatnot, and when there comes a issue I have to reveal it to them for. If I have a seizure and I call in and tell us hey I'm having seizures today then. Yeah that's. Hip of protection, this is also. Entitled to know this condition here? But the protection of. Right now, for the company that could go while this is kind of a pain in the as she keeps having seizures and are coming into work. But. We use the Cova cover and say, well, let's let's furlough her or layer off because of covid but isn't this true Stewart? That the. There comes a point well, if you cannot fulfil your duties of the job. You basically could get like Oh after all your vacation time has been used up after your sick days because I know there's a family act as well but isn't there a case where they're like this person cannot complete their job their day to day tasks you. Who wrote this question for them? Right. Check his email. Thanks. No but is it I mean I, would think gotta make reasonable accommodation, right? Exactly. What's reasonable that's That she's had to deal with us in the past, just weary about her new employer. The. Same thing. So And I basically, it's very rare that I have them. I only have probably about minor ones. Once a month major ones only like I get a fever probably happens like once a year and that's the thing is also don't they make assumptions anytime I do have to tell people they don't ask how are they under control car they doing where season life kidney cancer like who would you give her advice to give hr heads up that this.

"The insurance. Company but. Like I looked into the the contract somewhat, and there is there's coach for it. They have codes to cover the surgery, but yet they're still refusing. So when when the the I circa tries to file the claim they're denying it because they're saying experimental but but I don't understand why they can say that if there's codes already exist for that surgery have they denied because sometimes insurance companies will deny something for your healthcare and then you gotta go through a couple rounds before they finally accept it. It's total I'm on round four right now. It may get flagged. Like with automation or something right like nobody really looks at it just shows up under a certain category and they just they just kill it possibly but I mean, I i. know some people that needed medical Dina's medical treatment and they were denied that for some time I mean even people after strokes and stuff like that. They were denied for some time and then it's finally approved. I mean I would tell you that you may potentially have a bad faith claim that might be worth pursuing. I don't know if that doesn't for you in the immediacy though I would have been the immediacy I would try to bring it up the ladder that insurance company and see if you can get a supervisor somebody with some weight there to You know. Do, you know do what's needed to be done for you, and if that doesn't work pursue a bad faith claims because obviously if you're is Boston how do you need you need a new? I yeah, right exactly. Yeah and it has been going on for over a year. Now I've been fighting with him. I am able to see for years so it's been a year. Yes Look at pursuing a bad faith claim. Bring it up the ladder while you're doing it. But look to see if you can pursue pursue of bad faith. Here's a question for WPRO's obviously you want to move forward with a a medical issue. So you're paying yourself paying yourself and and by the time if you get the okay from the insurance company will pay you back for lost for you paying what they should have been covering. What do you mean like if? He's saying he's got this is situation. He's we're GONNA move forward because he needs a surgery or whatever it is going to be going on. So he's GonNa do it pay out of his pocket shut down the road futures company goes okay. Yeah. We'll cover it. Do they go back in time and repay him back for what they should've covered. I haven't seen that scenario I. don't see how it couldn't work that way I mean insurance companies get paid back and you know payments reversed switched to all the time. Yeah I don't see why would. Day. Difference I will say if I can interject peer your argue tried that route with the Insurance Company and I've been up the ladder to supervisors, Aung same question, and they said if I pay out of pocket for basically I'm I'm screwed. Back submitting explorer bad faith claims maybe maybe an attorney who handle something like that could Throw some weight around possibly get something going in the immediacy for you. I don't know but I mean you have a contract with them to provide insurance Sounds like they're not abiding by that contract. If you're if you're saying that they've got code in there that that accept this surgery and they're not willing to pay for it sounds like they're in violation of the contract to you which that's bad faith and it sucks because this is a be you buy insurance to protect you from this kind of. Then you gotta you gotTa fight the people that you're paying I find insurance for a living. This is why more and more people will do stuff without insurance. My job shouldn't have to exist. Yes exactly. That's what sucks. Yeah. Can you give me an idea as far as the this they claim how how do I pursue that? You need to speak with an attorney? WHO does bad faith? Okay Yup getting. Get attorneys involve okay. Man is that is that your firm? Do they do that type of work? I don't believe that we do but hanging a lot on might be able to find your referral. ooh, look at great.

And, take a look at our backyard and give us an estimate on building patio. in the meantime, we had taken down our deck and did all the hard work ourselves piloted up on a truck. Had It sent away and all he needed to do was come in and poured the concrete and do his job. He gave US estimate and it's I think a little bit longer than normal to. Do the work, but we worked with him on his because it was side job. So he had to do with normal job. And come whenever he can tour for us. After the job was completed We took a good look at it when the dust settled and he did a horrible job. He never got back with us and until I had threatened that I was going to go further with. my concerns, and so we had to quotes come in and they're quoting us for doing a whole new job half the price of what he charged us did you have a written contract with them? No we did not threat I. I had signatures what I paid him. Well the here's the thing. You, you try to cut costs by going with a guy that was just working on the side. That I wasn't picking him because I thought he was inexpensive. I was picking because shape what he was. Explained to me that he was going to do a good job. But. Then at that point, you're basically taking a guy at his word fortunately in situations like this because trust me I've higher guys that do side work but I'm like right everything up because they'll give you a detailed account of what they've done, what they're supposed to do. But if the situation where they're saying do it for you and if they don't do good work that's kind of on you. Yeah. 'cause we get to go after he doesn't work for anybody meat is the new associate at Manila injecting. Could. You challenge it in court possibly, but I don't know you seem to not have any evidence unfortunately there's if not in writing that never happened. Great Well I. There's an.

Payments here. Fifty, five, hundred dollars. I was GONNA say if it was three thousand or under I would say you consider small claims court Yep might be a little bit of a lower bar there and you're gonna you're to spend about that just to get an attorney to go after this guy and then in the end you don't you still don't there's no contracts.

What grounds are they saying that they're refusing to pay for it they're saying that the surgery is considered experimental because there's a a implant involved an iris implant to replace the Irish that was blown up.

"Know. It was it was difficult to watch. Somebody who's covered them and in needs to watch it to be able to report on the next day. I was just. There were things said that that obviously the we'll, we'll get reported at some point they wanted to get past all the mechanics, the circus. Type behave yeah and then you're right though. But as far as like you can't report you can't pull a clip. You can't get a clear sense from anybody their. Ninety minute period they said less than every five seconds key people were talking to. I. Love It was funny. As, far as cove, it goes the one big thing I think came out of yesterday was that the governor of Ohio sounds lot more willing. To relax the alcohol curfew and maybe change the the bar hours in the state part of it may have to do with the fact that both the reds and the Indians are in the playoffs. Right this afternoon a lot of these games If if either team are both teams, perhaps can make a run would be at night and you know the bar especially since the bay baseball's planning bubble that does not like, you can go to the Games. So about the only chance you know fans have to get together to wash would be in places like the holy grail. I was just going to say the holy grail need. That's Kinda like the other institution here in Cincinnati You Gotta Pay Back, to them the fact that the Games are all in the afternoon, here's the first series. So I mean you know if I'm not many people left working downtown. Yeah. But you know at least two people have a place to go isn't that sad one it's not a lot of people working downtown are not I mean I know a report this week said of the office towers in Cincinnati proctor and gamble the fifth Third Center fifteen percent occupied right now. Wow. I mean most of the major companies still have people working from home. How many people do you think in our building? We have this whole or half of the. They've eliminated one floor of the garage for some kind of work and nobody noticed any. Crunch. To get parking spaces like there used to be in here we work I mean like our sales department, I think they've learned it's like they're kind of like real estate agent at an it firm the built new headquarters in blue, Ash? About five years ago called intelligence three, hundred, fifty people the legacy point right there eight Hartman their office building is being least their leasing themselves because they have. They don't WanNa see any need to bring their workers back into the man's a beautiful complex. I mean, you know brand new and we was built for you know today's modern team approach, all kinds of local facilities and. You. Know they're they've got enough release while I mean it's a technical company should know that a lot of stuff can be done at home right? You know and that's what we're. We're getting like I said what the sales people here they could just work out of my wife's a saleswoman. She doesn't from home and we always used to say they should be out there selling any. Yeah, right. Think are do our building from this end the whole. Yeah. Well, listen I D- from our. What what our building here is a gigantic bill beautiful building. I've never worked at a radio station that has been so big with this half a floor and even when it was full, there was too much space. Yeah. So they're going to end up change in that they're going to have to. That's thank. Every company is looking. Yeah. Yeah. Moving forward and that was like. Having festivals and stuff. So they got to cut in renting out. Space here and stuff because we gotta have festivals for executives. Go to. Get out you looking for a business model to take forward, and then one of the things we're doing with the Newport on the Levee is there will taking part of their office space and knocking down walls and just turning it into meeting rooms conference rooms so that you know like salesforce if they get together once a month, they just go rent out for an hour. They've got all the you know the High Tech. Boards and the things they need if they have to do is zoom meeting and all this region. Yeah I mean that's they say that's probably GONNA be the wave of the near future. So. Companies can still have meetings or you WANNA got big sales pitch you WanNa make to somebody who have item there you know they provide all the the coffee and donuts and the tech equipment that you need. To use it once a month. So if you own property, that's what you do use rental space I. Guess You know like the Kentucky speedway. How crazy is that? We were just talking about racers. Like you know it goes a while ago obviously but now it's like no reason even open a backup because. You got to give them time to figure out what's what they're going to do we got. You haven't heard or somebody waking up this morning. NASCAR's decided that the cup series race in Sparta's not going to happen anymore and. They are scrambling to figure out some way to make the facility useful. Yeah. Big thing fireworks every year I I have no problem with them. But there's a river. That's not gonNA happen. You gotTA, have the river, but we got maybe a fourth of July celebration up there. Maybe. They said, you know RV rallies camping events. Ever get back to doing concerts. Again, I guess you're going to have to I mean the place could hold over one hundred thousand people years ago they had. metallica Korn Yeah and a kid rock all on one ticket was hugh brings up like that. Every detail nice part about planning something like that is you don't have to worry about working around the reds and the Bengals, right? Right could it's yours it like this are.
