"Is the Tom Hardman program In April of 1963 8 white clergyman one was a rabbi the other one was a Catholic priest the rest for Protestant ministers Jointly published a letter in the Birmingham newspaper telling doctor Martin Luther King to basically stay out of town Don't provoke violence Don't come to our town and create a problem When he was arrested in Birmingham and put in jail he was given the newspaper in which their letter was published And in jail he wrote a response to it asserting on the margin of that newspaper eventually one of the trustees in the jail gave him a little more paper that he could write on And this is what I'm reading from We're about halfway through it here This is doctor king's letter from a Birmingham jail April 1963 You speak of our activity in Birmingham as extreme At first I was rather disappointed that fellow clergymen would see my nonviolent efforts as those of an extremist I began thinking about the fact that I stand in the middle of two opposing forces in the Negro community One is a force of complacency Made up in part of negroes who as a result of long years of oppression are so drained of self respect and a sense of somebody Ness that they have adjusted to segregation And in part of a few middle class negroes who because of a degree of academic and economic security and because in some ways they profit by segregation have become insensitive to the problems of the masses The other force is one of bitterness and hatred And it comes perilously close to advocating violence It is expressed in the various black nationalist groups that are springing up across the nation The largest and best known being Elijah Muhammad's Muslim movement Nourished by the negroes frustration over the continued existence of racial discrimination This movement is made up of people who have lost faith in America who have absolutely repudiated Christianity And who have concluded that the white man is an incorrigible devil I have tried to stand between these two forces saying that we need that we need emulate neither the do nothingism of the complacent Nor the hatred and despair of the black nationalist For there is the more excellent way of love and nonviolent protest I am grateful to God that through the influence of the Negro church the way of nonviolence became an integral part of our struggle If this philosophy had not emerged by now many of the streets of the south would I am convinced be flowing with blood I am further convinced that if our white brothers dismiss as rabble rousers and outside agitators those of us who employ nonviolent direct action and if they refuse to support our nonviolent efforts millions of negroes will out of frustration and despair seek solace and security in black nationalist ideologies A development that would inevitably lead to a frightening racial nightmare Oppressed people can not remain oppressed forever The yearning for freedom eventually manifests itself and this is what has happened to the American Negro Something within as reminded him of his birthright of freedom And something without as reminded him that it can be gained Consciously or unconsciously he has been caught up by the zeitgeist And with his black brothers of Africa and his brown and yellow brothers of Asia South America and the Caribbean The United States Negro is moving with a sense of great urgency toward the promised land of racial justice If one recognizes this vital urge that has engulfed the Negro community one should readily understand why public demonstrations are taking place The Negro has many pent up resentments in latent frustrations and he must release them So let him march Let him make prayer pilgrimages to the city hall Let him go on freedom rides and try to understand why he must do so If his repressed emotions are not released in nonviolent ways they will seek expression through violence This is not a threat but a fact of history So I have not said to my people get rid of your discontent Rather I have tried to say that this normal and healthy discontent Can be channeled into the creative effort of outlet excuse me of nonviolent direct action And now this approach is being termed extremist but though I was initially disappointed to be categorized as an extremist as I continue to think about the matter I gradually gained a measure of satisfaction from the label Was that Jesus an extremist for love He said love your enemies bless them that curse you do good to them they hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you Was that Amos and extremist for justice He said let justice flow down like waters and righteousness like an ever flowing stream was not Paul and extremist for the Christian gospel When he said I bear in my body the marks of the lord Jesus was that Martha Martin Luther and extremist your high stand I can not do otherwise to help me God And John bunyan quote I will stay in jail to the end of my days before I make a butchery of my conscience And Abraham Lincoln quote this nation can not survive half slat slave and half free end quote And Thomas Jefferson quote we hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal So the question is not whether we will be extremists But what kind of extremists we will be Will we be extremists for hate Or for love Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice or the extension of justice In that dramatic scene on calvary's hill three men were crucified We must never forget that all three were crucified for the same crime The crime of extremism Two were extremists for immorality and thus fell below their environment The other Jesus Christ was an extremist for love truth and goodness And thereby rose above his environment Perhaps the south the nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists I had hoped that the white moderate would see this need Perhaps I was too optimistic Perhaps I expected too much I suppose I should have realized that a few members of the oppressor race excuse me That few members of the oppressor race can understand the deep groans and passionate earnings of the oppressed race and still fewer have the vision to see that injustice must be rooted out by strong persistent and determined action I am thankful however that some of our white brothers in the south have grasped the meaning of this social revolution and committed themselves to it They are still all too few in quantity but they are big in quality Some such as Ralph McGill Lillian Smith Harry golden James McBride dabs and Braden and Sarah Patton boil Have written about our struggle in eloquent and prophetic terms Others have marched with us down nameless streets of the south They have languished and filthy roach infested jails suffering the bruise abuse and brutality of policemen who view them as dirty N word lovers Unlike so many of their moderate brothers and sisters they have recognized the urgency of the moment and since the.

"Cases of cova coming in every day. I can be a real challenge for the nhic. I'm actually made worse hugely by the fact that over the summer i got nothing is inevitable that millions of people will be told to self isolate either by being pinned by the all through heston trice and they will ray just be not announcement that Back st- and stuff. You know middle have to do that because otherwise is not just the jesper. All everything we're doing is going to be massively disruptive because of the self-isolation rules and and actually no few people told so isolate actually have an infection us actually if the facts and so i do think it makes sense to get this in proportion to actually what all the benefits of of this massive disruption teeth of the defense stuff jemele senate carter spoke tomorrow about the situation in afghanistan after twenty years of military action thinking of all the people who've died or are currently severely disabled as a result of that long long engagement. Do you think it was worth it. I think it's a very challenging question. I think it slightly depends on how afghanistan how it turns out but i think what one has to remember is that ourselves in the americans went to the south of afghanistan and for that matter east afghanistan and took the insurgency on an its heartlands in and in doing that as part of an international coalition we created the conditions for the civil society. I described earlier to flourish elsewhere in afghanistan. So it's a collaborative efforts. These things so often are not the plain fact. Is that not a day. Goes by without me. Thinking of the four hundred fifty seven british military who lost their lives in afghanistan. And i think all of us can hold our heads high who fought there because we weren't defeated tactically on the battlefield and our military showed phenomenal courage and remarkable adaptability against what was very very challenging opponent. You mentioned civil society just now There's a story in the papers today. In the sunday times today about billionaire stepping in to try to plug some of the gap of the fall in british aid does cutting british a broad risk destabilizing societies overseas. I think the key thing is making sure the aid is spent wisely. And i think that if you join it up with foreign policy security policy animal connected way then. I think you've probably got a better chance of making sure. That aid is spent wisely as indeed. In many parts of afghanistan it has been spent very wisely and finally ahead of the finding of the year. Two twenty twenty foot will championships. Tony down and i spoke to the italian ambassador to the u. k. Raffaele from better about where the football was ready coming home. If england does win the game tonight and we win the european cup. You'll of course remember that. We invented football in england. You'll agree that football's coming home defense. What you'd be with football coming home. I mean if you go back to when the football was invented yes by then coming. Home is also if we win because after all you know we. Have you know on recess way. Say for worldcom already and other european cup. So from this point of view even started in england maybe as developed back there in other countries including mine.

"Sadly afraid that that report is wrong the take. The data was provided to the prime minister and other members of that cabinet committee in the most up-to-date way before the decision was made on monday. And the those taking part in. The meeting had all the relevant data in the most up-to-date way before the decision was made. There's no question of prime minister. Not being cited on important data it was provided to him and other members of that committee in the normal way people would expect nick robinson filling in for andrew marr quizzed parkland over the lack of successful prosecutions rape cases across england and wales. You did say you listening this week. As i said in the introduction to the concerns of people about the desperately low level of convictions in cases needed something very unusual. You summon the cameras. You said you were sorry. You said you're going to do something about it. Your labor opponent. David lamb says you should go further. It's not the words aren't good enough. In less. you can reverse the figures within a year. He says you should do the honorable thing and resign. Look the policy is not justified apology. It's about action. Didn't the action plan. We set out to clear aim to get a conviction rates backup the volume of prosecutions backup to the levels. They were five years ago by the end of the parliament now. I don't just do that alone. That can here's why such a low politics has no place in an argument and in in a in a debate too serious series veep first of all. It is constitutionally illiterate to suggest that a politician like me should in any way. Command control the way in which independent prosecutors and the police go about their work. That would be wrong. Robinson also in. Td merit great manchester. Andy burnham you had a bone to pick with nicholas sturgeon over the scottish government's latest antique ovid measures are really disappointed on friday that the first minister of scotland just announced out of the blue as far as we were concerned travel ban saying that people can travel from scotland to munster insulted and and people could go the other way. You know exactly what. The snp always accused the westminster of doing you know. Just kind of riding roughshod over the nps treating the north of england with the same content in just kind of bringing in without any consultation with all snow agenda suggest to you. That disappointed doesn't quite capture your mood when you heard that you furious. What did you feel when you saw scottish. Football fans dancing and partying in the streets of london when they're banned from the streets and manchester. Well i just think it's the standards. It's as simple as that. It's hypocrisy 'cause they don't tell us exactly what they always complain that the uk government does those to scotland. So i'll be writing to the first minister today. I'll be asking for compensation for the individuals who might lose holidays and the businesses. You might lose bookings why sort of a couple from salsa double job to her about walking holiday in scotland not able to go. It's completely disproportionate. In my view. We have come up with a different arrangement. If the first minister have been in tortuous. But the second thing. I'll say to her. Is you know we need an arrangement here. The scottish google unconscious impose things on parts of the north of england with no no discussion with those lot is simply wrong and they need to live by the same standards that they've always called for from ovens of the k.

"Despite the good weather and the com- see at not always been harmonious g seven summit in corpus bay. A row has erupted between boris. Johnson and french president emmanuel macron who in a heated discussion about sausages and post brexit trading difficulties reportedly said that northern ireland was not part of the same country as the rest of the u. k. The foreign secretary spoke to andrew more about the incident. So far as you're aware we've spoken to prime minister. I'm sure did president. Matra franz describe northern ireland's being not a proper full part of the uk when you forgive me if i don't divulge the The detail of what was discussed behind closed doors. This and actually i would. I can tell you there. Is you figures here in carb's bay but frankly for months now and years have characterized the woman that under somehow separate country and that is wrong. It is a failure to understand the facts. It is a failure to appreciate what speaking around northern ireland in those times and approaching the issue of the northern ireland protocol in those terms does causes damage to businesses from both communities in northern ireland. Creates deep consternation. And we wouldn't talk about catalonia in barcelona in barcelona or corsica and france in those ways. What we want now is a flexible approach which looks at all of the provisions in the northern ireland protocol not just those that protect the eu but those that protect free flow between trade between great britain and ireland. The ball is in the us court. The pm was very clear about it. We're willing to be flexible and matic. They must come back with the reciprocal goodwill to make prime minister has indicated. The now looks very unlikely that the uk will see the full removal of social distancing and covert control measures on anticipated date of june twenty. First this is not ritchie to recent surge in cases of the delta variant rob defended the probable today until the final restrictions lifted. If you decide that you can't get rid of all those restrictions. Do you think you can hold the conservative party together on that. Yes look. we'll be evidence-based stated based. I think the key point is we want to move out of lockdown irreversibly. I think vast majority of people in the country but also understand that. We don't want the yoyo back in and out of measures. Of course we really understand those hankering to get to the fourth step both businesses but also people who won't be able to socialize more than you can under the current step three restrictions so we'll of course we're sensitive all those concerns but we got to be data and evidence driven and it's that critical link between transmission and hospitalizations which is not the only test there are four but is the one which is probably the most sensitive right now. So what do you say to those people who are watching television this morning in agony thinking that's the end of my business. That's the end of my job. I can't take anymore of this. It's ridiculous what you say to them. I share the anguish. We've we've we know. Businesses have been struggling through the pandemic. That's why we delivered this this enormous package of support.

"Hello and welcome to coffeehouse shots spectators. Daily politics podcast. I'm as hartman. And this is the sunday roundup. The health secretary matt hancock joined and jemma in the studio this morning and the conversation soon turned to the indian variant of the corona virus which is recently being rebranded as the delta variant by the world health organization this variant has now been recognized by public health england as the case. Dominant strain mosques. Hancock about how it could affect the government's rate map to unlocking on the twenty-first of gene which turned to the agonizing joyce ahead about the twenty-first of judas really really difficult decision. I think people understand that. Now with information you've got how much more transmissible is. The delta variant will the best estimate of the growth advantages. We call of the of the delta variant from sage is round forty percent so that percents that does make life more challenging for everybody. And you've seen that. The case rates have risen a little. But the good news. Is that the the hospitalizations the number of people. Rhyming hospital is broadly flat and the majority appear to be those who have not had a vaccine a tall and only a very small minority of people who've had both jobs so what the best scientific advice i have at this stage is that after one job. It's not quite as effective against the new delta variant but after both jobs is so. That's why so important that we drive through these vaccinations. People come forward for that. Second job if the data turns bad will you would you Delay the the twenty first of june openings. We're absolutely open to doing that. If that's what it needs to happen we said in the roadmap that the twenty first of june is the date by which we would not take step for before that date and we'd look at the data. That's exactly what we're doing so the roadmap was set up in order to be able to take these sorts of changes into account last week. Dominic cummings accused hancock of lying to the prime minister about whether people being transferred from hospitals to care. Hoon's had been receiving cova tests during the early stages of the pandemic mapa cummings is allegations straight to hancock. We've talked an awful lot about this. I am just looking really for a yes or no answer ballots. Who's a very straightforward question. Did you tell boris johnson. In march people sent from hospitals indicate homes. Were being tested when you they want. No i did not thank you. Very much deflect were dominik. Cummings was lying about that. No because i think that he in in in what he just said he said that people would be and the truth is of course. That was the policy to get people those tests available but i had to build. This testing capacity didn't exist so before before it existed. Were you sending people from hospitals. Inter care homes knowing that they might have covid and they weren't being tested. Well we know absolutely that the testing wasn't available to test everybody. And if you if you recall at the time the advice was the clinical advice okay. Was that very few people would be able to pass on covid if they didn't have any symptoms so the testing was reserved for those new had symptoms. Because as you said the wasn't the capacity but on the twenty seventh of march by the twenty seventh of march you the capacity to ten thousand tests a day. And we're talking in total here about twenty five thousand people so if you'd put that if that had been your focus you could have done all this testing within three days. No because we need i s fact for all sorts of other things as well. We need his priorities. And and the other. There's other people's lives..

Super Bowl LV: How Tom Bradys Bucs Upset The Chiefs
"Bill. It is eleven twenty nine pm eastern and we made it. We have arrived at our final late sunday night session of the nfl season. I think you're showing the appropriate level of enthusiasm. Just watch ill. Barnwell has been our. Nfl oracle through low. These many football weeks you can catch wisdom on the bill. Barnwell show podcast and his monday column on. Espn plus bill. I know i'm washed. I knew that coming in. But tonight i also discovered that i'm like had to close my eyes because the weekend halftime show is making me wash so on top of these horrific super bowl. We ended up getting an. I'm also just the opposite of tom brady. In every sort of genetic sense it turns out. There were so many songs i've heard in uber's or biggest when i was like. Oh that's who does that song. That sucks i. i'm. I'm okay with that songs now. I really learned a lot during the halftime show. Not sure i learned so much during the actual game l. If i mean it just in thinking about what are most notable takeaway or the the moment remember from the super bowl will be years from now it comes down to maybe mccall hardman lining up full yard offsides on a field goal. Try tony romo. Getting very excited about a streaker. In the fourth quarter of lot where he was trying to will the game to be competitive was a a complete and utter dominant victory by the buccaneers and was an upset but the thoroughness of the whole thing and the repetitive nature. What happened from series and series for possession possession. Really just sort of by the end of the game. Everyone knew what the story was because it was really office so it did feel a times bill like we were getting. Tom brady playing his hits. But before we pay our respects at the altar of brady and all of his non washington is. I want to ask how exactly kansas city. Patrick mahomes looked this helpless. Because that's what was shocking to me too twenty seventeen before mahomes was a starter in the league to find a game where the chiefs had been. Shut out of the end zone entirely before tonight. So how did the buccaneers. How defensive coordinator. Todd bowles stopped. One of the most unstoppable offenses. We ever seen it. Was you know sort of a game. Plan out of the nineteen sixties. Winning at the line of scrimmage and dominating upfront and you know. I don't want to exaggerate. Wanted to subscribe to recency bias. But i have to admit i'm not sure i've ever seen an offensive line. Get beaten badly over the course of an entire game as the chiefs were by the buccaneers on sunday. Night me last year in the super bowl we saw nick bosa and the forty niners really dominate the chiefs from most of the first three quarters were on pace to win that game but fourth quarter. Nick bosa got tired. And patrick mahomes turn things around very quickly. The chiefs launched forward scored a bunch of touchdowns and won the super bowl. And this time around. We were sort of waiting for that moment right and it never happens. The buccaneers pressure mahomes on virtually every single meaningful past play. This game often

How Police Violence Could Impact The Health Of Black Infants
"Floyd's killing in Minneapolis placed police violence again in the national limelight, with protests erupting. But black and Brown communities say the effective police violence is felt long after demonstrations died down. In fact, research shows trauma from racism and violence can leave imprints on a community's health, including on pregnant women. Here's NPR's Yuki Noguchi. Outside the corner store where George Floyd died. Murals, stuffed animals and origami cranes filled the street. So I'm Rachel Heart of men. I am on the faculty. Rachel Hardman grew up nearby and it's a public health professor at the University of Minnesota. We walk in a field where there's a memorial for victims of police violence. It looks like a replica of a cemetery with about 200 grave markers like Ralph Bell, right? Hard del Cheryl over here. Many of these people were local and died at the hands of police. Travis Jordan in Minneapolis. He's actually it was a friend of one of my dear friends, Hardman surveys to makeshift cemetery. My first thought, is it This isn't even all of the names. And that breaks my heart. This scene, she says, doesn't capture the whole of the problem that police violence leaves marks across a community of survivors, their families and neighbors. Hardiman studies racial disparities in health, focusing on a longstanding problem. Black mothers die in childbirth of 3 to 4 Times The rate of whites That holds true regardless of wealth or education. Black babies are more than twice as likely to die in their first year. Research suggests racial discrimination is a likely cause of both preterm birth and infant mortality. Weighing factors like obesity, smoking or poor prenatal care. Hartmann's latest research looks at how police violence in particular might affect that. She studied women in and around Minneapolis after police shot Philando Castille in 2016, and two years later, Thurman Blevins Thurman Blevins had just been killed in North Minneapolis. And we asked folks do you feel like this is impacting your current pregnancy and Over half of the women in our study said Yes, nearly 60% of those women gave birth to pre term babies who were underweight or died at route, she says. It's about stress. Ah, lifetime of struggles of her housing, education and safety. Large body research shows that that stress across pregnancy can have an impact on low birth weight and preterm birth in particular. Then in the start of life is so important, because if we can't get that, right, you know we're setting someone up for a lifetime of pain and a struggle and disadvantage. Examining these struggles, Hardman says, might help doctors better understand challenges for women like Raven Cane. I meet cane and her three week old daughter, Remmy. Okay. Prior to Remmy Kane had five miscarriages with no medical explanation about what caused them. I had gotten an ultrasound and had seen a baby in a strong heartbeat. Literally had come back the next day, and there was nothing there. So I just had this really high anxiety anxiety about losing her pregnancy with Remmy, too. She was about four months pregnant when the pandemic hit. Then George Floyd died blocks from her parent's home. You know, During that time, it was constant sirens when they were saying that the KKK was supposedly in town, and it's just stressful. It's like and then you're trying to Carry life and then you're thinking about them being a black person in this world and the things that they might encounter, Kane tried to distract herself by hosting a family party to reveal she was having a girl. My dad was jumping open down like he was so heavy, he said. He was in the garage and cried a little bit, cried partly out of relief. He told her the world wasn't safe for black boys. Midwife Rebecca Polston. Here's that often. Holsten started roots community birth center five years ago to offer women more support than a traditional hospital. Clinic defied the odds in five years on Lee. One client has had a preterm birth, she says. That's because the clinic addresses trauma. Some of the things that we explore is not finding out the sex. Of their baby because the stress that it brings when you find out that you're having a black sun. That kind of stress, she says, is palpable all around her. After George Floyd's death, Colston says she confronted a group of white men flying Confederate flags three blocks away. She closed the birthing center for a week. But the threat, she says, isn't just from outsiders. Once an elderly neighbor fainted nearby, Polston and her staff rushed to help and the police came up with their hands on their guns saying, What are you doing to us while we're taking blood pressure clearly healthcare providers those Interactions where those who you call for help. May not come to help you but come to harm you shadows every aspect of one's life and it becomes especially acute when you're in your birthing phase of your life. That rings true for coming Love Valenzuela. I don't know how to explain it, but I feel like that trauma is just in my body balance way Low is a doula. Originally from Chile Four years ago, she went into early labor. On her way to the hospital. Police pulled her over for driving with high beams on she told him. him. I I have have an an emergency. emergency. I'm I'm pregnant pregnant and and he he stops stops me. me. I I need need to to see see your your driver's driver's license license and and registration. registration. So So I'm I'm scrambling, scrambling, shaking. shaking. Just remembering makes like my heart beagle so fast. She was scared and her contractions intensified. She says he'd be raided her ticketed her and insisted she keep the windows rolled down its frigid cold. I'm crying my tears or freezing as they're coming down because it's so cold. Her baby survived. But this spring, Valenzuela nearly died giving birth to her second child. She blames her earlier encounter with police because my uterus had worked so hard, potentially from this previous Drama. I actually had an acute hemorrhage. Two months later, George Floyd died about a mile away. She's still haunted that he called out for his mother as he died. So, too, is researcher Rachel Hardiman. You know, when George plaids yelled for his mama and summon all mothers, Hardman stands just a few feet from where he was killed. It's just so painful. You know, this'd why do the work that I do is so that every mom gets to have a healthy baby and Have a good life. She's expanding her research nationally to keep digging into the connections between police violence and its impact on mothers and their babies.
"hardman" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today Podcast
"Had A great postseason. Hardman couldn't do anything last year, said the little bit when tire was out. I know we want. We want a number. Two receiver in that chiefs offense totally, but who do you like better, Hardman, or Kirk and to Jamie Heath? You know getting these guys in the Tenth Round Cohen and Christian Kirk. Is that good sleeper repeal Ben? You can start. Who Do you like better? Kirk Hi. Jamie Heath you like these guys in the tenth round. Love Kirk and then thrown Hardman is. It's weird. You know. Take a a receiver as a lottery tickets. It's weird to say, but he could be one of those guys like if Mrs. Time or certainly Komo's time I think in his second year he'll be a lot better. I think will be one of the primary weapons for Mahomes but I think it's unfortunate. Take an injury for that that it I kind of feel like also. This is one of those. Those situations I don't think Michael Hartmann is gone in the tenth round in most of our address, like Kirk got sounds about right I'm I like cartman this year as a boom or bust guy at the end of the draft, but I'm not spending a tenth round. Pick on him so if that's the cost, I would guess if we look at some other places where people playing for money. That wouldn't be as ADP. I am worried about Kirk. Just because I know Hopkins should help him to be more efficient because it's GonNa. Take Coverage Way I. Just don't know that he can get to one hundred and twenty targets and other things. He was really bad last year. Kirk. We talked. A little bit about a couple weeks ago, but one of the big things for. If you look at death was just he didn't catch men Downfield Farkas last year, a student as a rookie year, and if you average the two seasons, he's basically right around league average, but he was way above averages at rookie US way below is second year player Those kinds of events can't watch weight year to year that particular downfield targets. It's usually not a huge sample outsized impact on receive efficiency, and I think that's kind of what he's alluding to I. Still Think irks good player. He was a very good prospect profile. Coming in was better in his rookie. Season wasn't very good last year. Do think his targets are probably caps, but also airs on this GonNa throw a lot more and run a lot more plays. We talked about that thought about pace and play volume. They were the fourth fastest team in terms of situation, neutral pace, and they were in the bottom half place run, which is. Something that should be indicative of them. Running more plays. Throwing more passes this coming season so I think Hopkins actually helps in a way that it will. create more one on one synthesis situations, and hopefully he can have a little bit of fishing. Suspect similar to will fuller alongside Hopkins in Houston I. Think is not that much worse mcbrayer frankly floors very too but I think I can have that type of production as far as Hardman's concern, I, almost. Exactly? What Jamie said. The injury is something that I'm actually like considering Arvin. Is this weird like handcuff receiver? Because he was so vicious last year, and he was so explosive, and you know is going to be on a top. What one offense top three I mean! They're going to be so good. You want to be tied to the best deep ball. Throw in the League. He's a speedster, so there's a couple of things that could happen one. He could just beat out to Marcus Robinson or play over Sammy Watkins or to. To somebody gets hurt. He gets on the field. You're drafting at a point where he's benching cheaper in your almost just kind of waiting and hoping that he gets stats because he did early in the year, but it was the first few games of his career when tired kill went down, and then he didn't really the whole rest of the year, but when he did get on the field, he had explosive play after explosive play long cussin' after long touchdown was very very good. Really really I- per targeted, not something Egan staying. Huge number of targets, but somebody that when you step back in the big picture like this guy is in speedster tied to Patrick Mahomes, highest scoring offense was very explosive, been successful in a limited opportunity last year. There's a lot of upside there if he's an every down player some. He's he's somebody that for anyone. That's doing. Start a dynasty leaks. He's got to be a priority. Got To be very not top five round. But maybe top eight round. and which. Argue I research season extra. Would you take Michael Gallup or Miko harmon and a dynasty startup. Harder Yell I would say Gallup still, but not by a ton. For this year. Why hardman over water, well first of all over Walk Ins, and then the answer is yes, see question to why Hartman over Watkins. I've gone back and forth I. Think Jimmy pointed out one of our marks 'cause I was taken Hardman in the ninth or tenth round early in the offseason, hoping that one of Democracy Robinson or Watkins wasn't back. Zero were both reagents. They're both back and then after that I started taking Watkins around that point Jamie. Hartman there but I think I've back to Harbin is Kennedy more upset. I think he could certainly take walking sue, but why can't say. From the best obviously I mean I know the tight end, but. Well if you take two of them and may hopefully get some clarity early in the season and you, you know maybe one of them emerges, and you roll with one, and then you drop the. Here's your friendship wider transient strategy. Poster boys turn. All Right, so we've gotten through I twelve sleepers from you guys..

"Was April a closely watched survey from the university of Michigan just now shows consumer sentiment edged up only slightly in may with businesses reopening the consumer mood still is not lifting much market places Mitchell Hartman has background consumers are now feeling slightly more confident about the economy overall but people's anxiety about their own personal finances is still sky high says economist John Lear at polling firm morning consult millions Americans have filed for unemployment insurance it's unclear whether or not those workers are still able to meet their basic spending needs and Lear says about half of those who've lost jobs or had their hours cut aren't even getting benefits pretty sure holds at the economic policy institute says that's sapping confidence too that means that they are trying to subsist on much lower income they're going to have to cut their spending and it will make the recession worse and consumers remain very concerned about code nineteen continuing to spread leaner projects as a result we will not see any sort of a rebound in consumer spending in the near term at least until consumers are more willing to go out to dine and shop again I'm Mitchell Hardman for

Rails Camp USA with Bobbilee Hartman
"Bobby Lee Hardman is a developer advocate. Swear she's been in development for the past five years president more widely known as the founder of rails Camp West the longstanding unplug retreat for Web developers in the United States. Bobby Lee recently moved from the wind. West Seattle bobbly. I wrote rails instructors for vote bootcamp call block. It's so great to talk to you once again. Bobbly yeah you to me. I'm excited. Thanks thanks for joining me. Bobby Lee what is your develop origin story okay. So it's Kinda crazy so I didn't study my first year of college was photography then. I transferred transferred after a year. In did You Know Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing so then after college I started working at a small startup it up and we are building a mobile APP. Emmy outsource all of our development work to you know like a small dead shot and I was kind of you. Know doing Little bit of designed for them and a little bit of like preparing to do marketing. Because the apple doesn't live yet so as always at that deb shops office and the guys is in. There could kind of tell that I was really interested in what they're doing. I thought they were like Superman News. Just so cool to see at the time. And so they gave me a book to read L. H. Meal on a Schmaltzy assess and I read it really quickly and I was just like super into it and excited that I can learn it and I just was like Oh my God. This isn't that difficult you no. I think this might be something I might be interested in so then probably like a week after I finished that book there is a technique Chicago conference and I was living in Madison Wisconsin at the time so it wasn't that far so I went with a friend and one of the sessions that was going on there was called Anyone learn to code and so I was like oh for sure have to go to the session. They're going to like teach me all kinds of stuff you know like maybe there's some magic thing going on that's not not you know. Engineering is not that complicated. Whatever some drop and drag thing like photoshop or something and totally not that but they kind of explained to me about this the program? There's this new concept of doing learning one specific language in eleven weeks and so they were the first school to do it and even before Dev bootcamp when I was like. Oh this sounds interesting. You know maybe I'll just figure out if I don't like it. I mean if I don't like it that'll be able to communicate with our engineers that were working with you know win win regardless bliss so you know but you know. I wasn't quite sure so when I went back to Madison to think about it and then a week after that. This all happened really quickly Week after that Madison Ruby. I was in town which is a smaller conference and the day before it was a rail bridge in rails was the language they were going to teach in that course in Chicago so I was interested so went to this one day workshop in rails bridges a one day workshop that you teach you kind of the basics of what rails is. It's it's pretty probably made for people that no other languages but I was like. Oh Whatever I. I don't know how to use a computer. Besides doing a little bit of photoshop stuff and now each to Mounsey assess the book so I went to this thing and I learned you know pretty you know lake. It was still very confusing. I mean it's very high level But it was you know really I just got me really interested in thinking more about going to school and then at the end of the workshop they were like is anyone in the Roma photographer. You know it can be casual. I don't have to be super professional national anything but we just want someone to take some photos of the Madison Ruby Conference over the next few days so I was like. Oh I can do that. You know I'm not you know. Amazing at doing internal shots are inside indoors shots. But you know they're like whatever yeah sounds good and so it was jam who I'm still friends with. And so yeah. I shot the whole conference when I met all these people in the rails community Ruby community that I'm still friends with today and One of the instructors that school in Chicago was there so he kinda convince me a few convince me to just go ahead and take the program in Chicago and just see what would happen. I love that story because it's essentially a series of you saying yes to opportunities soon. be allowing up. Yes so yes so then. Pretty much after that Yeah I went to school in. Chicago's two months or whatever and after that out I was like I should move back to Minneapolis because my first role could be you know an internship it can be unpaid. I'm not sure and I'm from Minneapolis. So but yes. I got my first paid salary and everything junior position after that And that felt kind of like my first real job because my startup job fell a little. You know just kind like a starter thing before right up right out of college so see then my career just kind of kept going after that I got my next suffer engineering role at intuit do it in San Diego and then if you other things Until I started working at square. So yes so that leads us where you are first. Developer advocate on the show. How can you tell me what that role entails okay so a developer evangelist or advocate developer? Relations are all interchangeable and there are a little bit different at every company and and at Square. We kind of are less focused on going to events a lot and traveling a lot which is what a lot of a lot of evangelists as you as you may have met some of of them. That's a lot of what they're doing is creating You know talks conferences going to conferences and blog posts. So we do you know. We do a lot of talks conferences. We also encourage a lot of our engineers to speak at conferences and to teach them about what are the opportunities are out there for them to get Get out into the community deep and then we work on the blog newsletter. and Um yeah this new YouTube channel which we've created a lot of tutorials and short videos intro videos videos about you know maybe one topic that you'll see on our docks or something and so. We're still coding. Because recreating these orioles and creating these workshops stuff on on our videos and for blog posts. Well and let's see what else is the main thing is that you know Every developer over ventures as a little bit different to and what. They're evangelizing. So what they're sharing to their community of developers so we focused on sharing and spreading the word about our SDK's API's his and about this new marketplaces kind of like an APP store for evangelists mean for developers so a lot of people know of square for our hardware. But they don't know about us as much for some of the you know adding a payment form. It's your website or your mobile APP so a lot of that is what kind of were getting the word out what. I'm trying to get the word out. Maybe you know on twitter or you know just being part of the community going to meet ups telling people kind of what we're up to and you know writing different blog posts and then And then another cool thing that we're up to is this marketplace's APP store if you will where we're connecting our smelling of sellers that we have so people that have readers tres in the hardware at their coffee shop or for their store the farmer's market We're kind of trying to make you know we're trying to work on. Adding developers offers into the scene there. So there's some developers who might WanNa make us custom tool for a seller so we're kind of connecting them in a marketplace where they can make money on people and building APPs for sellers dollars. So that's kind of this new thing that were Working on as well so yes so it's kind of different. You're always kind of like you know you're either spreading the word about what S. gave an API or were also teaching Our own internal teams. You know what are the developer saying slack or the questions coming through recently any. How can we change the docs to be a little bit? More user friendly What are some things that developers want that we aren't building? What are what are they saying about our current offering offering our current? SEK's in waters. You know yeah so. We're kind of like the voice of you know we can be help helpful in a few different ways but those are kind of all the things that would entail maybe something in evangelist evangelist would do not sounds like a lot. So what is the day in the life where you are you still coating yes so we're so coning. There's only three of us on my team that do mainly vandalism or advocacy and we so-called because we're creating blog post with some content in there so something where reteaching engineer engineer how to us when we're SDK's for example or introducing something that's new In an anarchist that were building for the Youtube Channel. We or you know coating up examples making small APPS Yeah kind of live coding on all of those videos so live examples of APPs Yes US oh. We're so th coating data days changes. Recently I've been working on looking back at all of our old blog posts making sure we don't have a lot of four fours and a lot of redirects going into some of our new content are new versions of Sek's or we've seen new API's that come out and there's new stuff coming out of the time so making sure blogs are up to date Working on a script for a video is something I do a lot now and mainly. That's I would say. Most of my time goes towards making scripts or working with other engineers on our team to produce a script gripped for something Yeah and like events we do some events for select engine like we'll have a group of people come and tell us how their experience with their API he is so we'll have you know events like that and stuff
Super Bowl Player Predictions
"All right Kramer kick things off. What is your first? I Chiefs Related Super Bowl profit. Well we started by talking about We started super bowl week by talking. About how one of the angles is this chiefs rushing attack I the niners rushing defense. which is the weakness of this team? They are San Francisco's defense thirteenth and adjusted line yards on the D. Line in eleventh and DVR against the run. This team has not gone under this total of eight and a half eighteen rushing yards. They've only got under that once in the last. Ten Games I it seems almost too obvious that they'll they'll be attacking hacking this angle so it gives me a little pause but like I said they've gone over this total nine out of ten. It's not a bad matchup. People will point out all with San Francisco's got a great defense. They got a good defense. They don't have a great defense against the run so there will be opportunity. Andy Andy. Reid is one of the greatest coaches in the again. One of the greatest offensive minds not to win a superbowl for sure not to win the Super Bowl but he he he gets running backs ax to produce no matter what they look like. So eight and a half yard seem silly. They've gone well north of two hundred in both games. This does seem really low. Oh I couldn't be jumped right off the screen emmy as a former tight end as a A former are you referencing as a former China and I also worked with a hall of Fame First Ballot Rob Gronkowski which Danny worked on the show as well we got a witness not know how to Pronounce Chore Four In Person. George sure calling worse. Instead of Chore Sports He Kept Calling at George Sports all right rob just one more time. He's like coming up George now the wartime I think it's the sports and then finally the Co host is like you don't know what a chore is like Washing Dishes Sweeping floors and he goes. I never did any jurors ores growing up. I was too busy scoring touchdowns to smile. This big GROG again channel. He thinks he's GRONK. He thinks he's King of the BRAS. There's only one continue the bras. And it is Travis Kelsey. I'm taking Kelsey to have more receiving yards than than kindle over. You're still you're still avenging. Take a loss in the albro category. I was bullshit that he didn't get in. And I think kindles little overrated and I liked the minus one and a half yards Kelsey Chelsea against Kendall that's risky bro. Kelsey is an a seasoned bro now older Keel. Those two young. He's only as a young and up and coming Bro. I I think he's again. This is just I had the early take. I kill sucks at home instead of adjusting to the optics or the reality. I'm GonNa just lean in. I'm going all in on trump. So you know. Sometimes you're presented with evidence and you just have to ignore it. I'm locked in. I'm okay I was GONNA see. Danny I know you gave me your props one. You liked Nicole Hardman. I just love McCall Hardman in this game we he. He caught a pass in the chargers. Game to really start the ball. This was the week. Seventeen chargers game caught a pass to get the ball. Rolling with our offense later had a sweep. Like they're we're GONNA use them. They've been waiting to use him for something if he's maybe it's a sammy. Watkins Pass. I would say if you're gonNA scheme something like that up the other end of it is going GonNa be somebody like Nicole Hardman McColl Hartman. Scores a touchdown in this game was three hundred over at my book. Make some money this guy. They've been sitting on what he can do all season. They've been waiting for him to get better at whatever the hell it is route running. You know timing. Whatever it is that he needed to do? He's doing it. He's more trust in the offense. I think more so than demarcus Robinson I think he scores a D.. In this game let me ask you Sean. Do you take over twenty three and a half yards over one and a half catch or over fifteen and a a half yards for longest catch. Well I guess I'll jump to my second one because it's literally one of those. How when I wrote it down McColl Hardman's that's total over? mybookie was twenty three and a half up to twenty six or twenty. Six ounce. Sounds like it's down to twenty three and a half. Do whatever it is. I like it over. This kid is a burner. Oh I think he can get it in one catch again speed kills and I think they're gonna be focusing on Hill. He's along I don't think is going to have a huge game now. Maybe breaks it off. Maybe he does but I think Sal is going in there with that mindset of. We're not letting tyreek Hill beat us in this game so I I'm throwing a little a little tiny tyreek hill and beat and didn't mention the field. That's always trying to move past that I feel like don't you. You want to protect yourself against that one catch for twenty one yards and just take longest reception over fifteen and a half. Oh see well that was total yards. But you're right I yeah what do you want to do. So you're saying I feel you'd be gets a catch. It's going to be like a twenty yarder. Always does he get the second catch to get over catch props over the total total yardage lab take longest or first reception is twelve and a half yards now. Hopefully they don't go to a screen or something to him. It's Y- yeah. Is it a reception as it. Total yards what we talking about my twenty three and a half was total receiving received but Kramer is making a case here and a good case. That maybe you're better off off just playing the over. I catch or global catch. He's only expected to have one and a half. So maybe two and they're saying twenty-three which means they're expecting directing two catches of twelve yard. That's an interesting way to all right so you talked me into all right. GimMe Gimme. I'll switch it up. I'll give I'll go over. I catch twelve and a half yards. Now no actually. I'll stick with my total because I want to. If he doesn't get it on the I catch then I have some live bets. Already have have too much stuff going to see what we're having here is. We're having the synapses firing in my going on right. Now we're in the car with with Johnny and Johnny's Janis driving and we just had a discussion that he was going to have with his buddies later. Now he doesn't have to have that conversation tech. We've sorted it out. He's not gonNA play. I cash over twelve and a half hour. We're going to move forward. What's your second point of the discussion? Sammy Watkins over three and a half catches this is I ah I I know I'm chasing a little bit. But I do like the angle that they are gonNA shut tyreek Hill down. I like the angle that they're going to try to shut Travis Kelsey down and and I'm probably going to attack props around everyone else A Hill and Kelsey are going to be the chalk your plays for the yardage rich props be more people will probably play those overs. So I'm GONNA attack is like Sammy. Watkins and I think he is the guy that is going to benefit the most. Because he's the guy that seems to be running more their possession stuff and as they stretch the field vertically Sean they call that taking the top off the deep and that leaves a lot of room in the middle for a guy like Samya walk in so I really like him to get three and a half catches. I mean you you got to figure how many throws is Patrick Mahomes GonNa have. I can't imagine he's having less than forty throws which means I can't imagine having less than like thirty two thirty two catches and then if you take the attempts so over or even the pass yards over with homes what is actually looked at it. Plays out in both scenarios. Where either they're throwing the ball a lot and winning or if they do get down there behind hind they're playing catch up? It makes sense for either a Kansas City win or unfortunately San Francisco win the over and and then passing the ball. It does kind of make sense. We haven't talked a ton about the running backs Darwin Thompson. What is he involved in this game I think so I mean the over are underway? What one and a half Kerry Russia rushing attempts? I mean there's lesean McCoy is persona non grata. Now he's he had some fumble issues he. He's he's actually quick and I have liked watching him break off a few

A Look At The Latest Movies In Theaters
"Movies tonight's premiere a lot of really interesting movies premiering tonight including the latest in the terminator series in the first movie that James Cameron's been involved in in a bit joining us now to talk about terminator dark fate and a few others is sorry bunch Washington post center stage contributor and movie critic joining us here in the here who have program said bunch good to talk to you about friends here in Cleveland how are I'm great Bob I'm great it is it is kind of a weird weekend at the at the movies you've got you've got a couple of pseudo award hi quite releases coming out this weekend you've got motherless Brooklyn right which is the ad Norton new are about life in New York City in the in you know thanks Vera it it is that the the problem with this movie is that it is the features as Norton doing that very ed Norton the actor leaf thing you know if you've seen the trailer a hundred times and I have a you know that this is you know that this is going to be which he you know kind of should the shuddering map and then you also have which is the story of Harriet Tubman I let me see if I may so he let me ask you a bit more about motherless Brooklyn because I am an Edward Norton fan and I'm I mean going going back to the illusionist I mean it I mean virtually all of the twenty fifth hour is that the kind of thing you're talking about when you see a typical Edward Norton type of it is a very it's a very after the manner performance yeah he's doing he's doing if he played a character who has as a mental disorder if they it's kind of a rain man white hi situation and you know it it it depends on how much patience you have for that like I it again my my my big complaint here is that the movie is two and a half hours long and the this is the an ad that somebody with limited patient it's hard to do that and so and there's also Herriot which unfortunately I I miss that my my child had the flu so I was not able to get the the the press screening of that but I'm I'm pretty interested in it in part because it makes Hardman look like a walking talking poster for the the the second amendment as she's you know she she has the arm up there she can head back south and and free the slaves I I I I am looking for that I have not actually seen it's like yeah I can't say one way or the other if it is they recommend or not recommend other terminator dark fate is is the big movie out this week of opening wide on you know four thousand three and is the first James Cameron involves terminator then in the the second one then he turned right back yeah and it is also a direct sequel to teach here this is one thing that people are fans if if there are fans out there who have obsessively watched all of the terminator movies you know terminator three terminator salvation terminator Genisys that that there are Connor chronicle this kind of gets all of that the the the with all of that out of existence and it's just the straight world two terminator two which that's great news that's great news because I I'm one of those who skipped all of those sorry I I I I don't know why the genesis and the others did not grab me because I was a huge terminator fan of the first two and I missed all the rest so I kind of thought I can't go see this I will have missed so much so you're saying that matter does not matter if you if you've seen terminator wanted terminator two you're all caught up I think I think most people have just seen terminator one in terminator three honestly I I have a soft spot for I thought it was interesting and there's something kind of different with the with the with the franchise the terminator dark fate starters there were it features the return of Linda Hamilton affair Connor she is back in trying to save a a young girl who lived in Mexico for being a what being wiped out by the terminator that is kind of a mix of the the terminators from the first two movies that if the if gotta act endoskeleton you know the metal and a skeleton with the metal liquid liquid metal poly alloy him make a kind of separate itself the can in separate itself into two sermon acres wow it's not just one and can I come in gonna coming hello and thank you and also a defining this girl is at a argument human I play by mackenzie Davis who who is the is the interesting actress she was on the halt and catch fire the prestige internet TV are you know prestige SL on AMC about the the ride the use a mac whatever Bubba around the figure out so the bunch though about terminator dark fate is is at his age he doesn't look like in cannot be the terminator of the past what role does Arnold play in his terminator by a persona in this thing sure well I I I don't want to spoil too much but but Arnold is also back he he will be back he is back and he is playing a terminator that has that came back from from the past and have kind of that'll that'll down almost the he has he has a family and I I'm not joking not a joke you have a family and his family is a family of five plus I mean I I get was it too much okay bye I got too much it is it is interesting you know there's there's there's a whole gender studies dissertation the written about the evolution of the terminator through through the years you know the in the four and like the role of masculinity in society or something as in the first movie right he's just as big Bob naked that you'd write me right goes around killing people and you know he is very of what product any you know and then in the second movie he had you have to learn to feel any you know he he gave he did he get them humor and you get them on personality and then in this movie he is again almost domesticated and it's very strange to her watch he that play out on screen it's not bad exactly if it's just strange I don't know I mean but the problem with this movie is that it totally fine but nothing more than that and if you if you want to revisit this world and you want to do it with James Cameron I think you need something a little more than fine but I also don't know that there's there's that much more you can do with the terminator movies right if it's a movie about you know sending a robot back into the past to kill somebody who is important to humanity future and you can only do that so many times with the before before the well really run right right well yeah I I just I think it I I think you could I I I I can't I can't give us a strong recommend in the sense that I don't think it's a much the gotta you gotta get out there you're gonna be wowed by it but it's it's okay it's fine you won't hate it if if mediocre we're not gonna see Arnold on skis jumping over cage shark though you're here you're telling me it's it's it's a less okay I feel like that sounds may have jumped the shark when you told me there's a terminator family I don't know how that's going to play out they said the only ask you one other question also opening this weekend I'm AT and if you've seen it or not but I'm interested just because of the heavy weights involved deniro has taken on a break from bashing Donald Trump and decided to make a movie here with Pacino and with the ray Romano as well it's the Irishman the Jimmy Hoffa another Jimmy Hoffa a vehicle here any thoughts on that one well I actually see that this morning there's a press screening the hot so I I do not have any thought Jeff yeah I I I don't be is it actually out in theaters now is that I had seen the ingleses opens today now so that yeah yeah yes so it is it okay after this is a necklace release it is going to be playing limited in a few theaters around the country it is a and I I just looked it up it is playing in DC so I I see it in a couple hours I will let you get back and let everybody know how good it is next week I yeah but it is it is out in a limited run in theaters right now mostly landmark they think and then it's going to be on Netflix on I think the fifteenth but let me I I will I will I I saw I saw the promotion for the movie yesterday on I don't know if it was the today show for what it was but but I did see here in interview no one today but anyway I did see an interview with the three of them and you know anytime you see anytime you see deniro and Pacino get together on screen which they have done numerous times it's it's huge it's you know either the chemistry is always perfect and and and it's always it the question is about the story which you'll find out later this morning but I'm also curious to see whether or not Robert de Niro's brand has been damaged or diminished at all because of his you know is this political career now seems to be as important to him is that his acting career and some people love his you know outside interests bashing Donald Trump and some people really resent it'll be interesting to see how audiences respond yeah so it it's on that puts on November twenty seventh in theaters now it in a few theaters now Hampel theaters now and then they'll be on Netflix starting November twenty seventh you know it's interesting because I I it'll be it'll be hard to judge exactly what what the response to this movie is because Netflix doesn't release any actual data you know they they don't release box office data they don't release of the data who actually watch it the movie and how much of it so it's hard it's hard to say if audiences will you know will stay away from that new models sorry is this a new model big you're right I mean it's Netflix produced and I think I saw on exposures today it's a hundred sixty million dollar budget so it's a massive budget movie if I saw that correctly in its Netflix and they are going to put it on Netflix but it's going to have a limited run in theaters is that a new model I don't I don't recall that being a very common thing if it's Netflix for them to put it in the mix we asked for a while they do it they do it for the they do it for you know doctors even type movie the the awards contenders because in order to qualify for the Oscars you have to have a theatrical run in in at least New York and Los Angeles or you know one week or two weeks it if if the thing so they they expand that a little bit and do you know Chicago the others but it is it is not a it is not the standard necklace really followed not the first time they've done that they did that last year for Roma and some of their other movies ballad about their Scruggs and and a couple others and they've they've done it a couple times this year but it is it's very it's very strange because the because of the way they work the major theater chains that want to work with them they have to do the right in the route well I'll tell you what Sonny it's a really interesting mix there's terminator if you're a fan of the series of special the first to go to that one if you can stand two and a half hours of jittery go see motherless Brooklyn and we'll find out next week what you thought of the Irishman sunny bunch Washington Post movie critic thank you so
