Inside The Russell Wilson-Seahawks Rift

"Years russell. Wilson has been wanting to throw the ball more and at the start of this year. It finally happened russell. Wilson was not good in the first half of the twenty twenty season. He was excellent deep cap touchdown. Seattle you run down there and set in his answer. Any better than that was fourth in yards per attempt. Weeks one through nine i. In passing. touchdown percentage was second in passer rating. Wilson keeps as default talk. He was legit. The best player in the league madden gave him a ninety nine overall rating during the season because he was cooking notion as he throws an accident. Edi feeds defensive player of the years like russell. Lula's legitimately the best guy in football games of the season then week nine arrived and they had this game against the buffalo bills that you recently wrote about. Can you tell us what happened in that game. And afterwards what happened is russell had to cook in the kitchen. Just kind of just caught on. Fire his paycheck wine with a sack at a takeaway from russell wilson. I actually watched that game with a former cr defensive and cliff april and teased talking me through it. And he's like russ's off he's trying to do too much and i think turned it over like four times. He threw a pick on the goal. Line throws for the jordan with tyco. I think that really turned the tables for the whole team. After that loss where they gave up forty four points and turned it over a bazillion times and got embarrassed in buffalo. Well what i would tell you that. I don't recognize that game. We haven't seen the look like that and it's a game that i don't have any place in my brain for. He told us he didn't even have any space in his brain for that game. That's very important subjects right like the fact that he considered that not seahawks. Football was influential the rest of the year. Well the following week against the rams things. I guess only got worse. Wilson throws and the other one four darius williams second game. I know that there are better days ahead. I'll use a baseball now but sometimes you go up to the plate you know and you don't have your way today mike. You and our colleagues. Mike sando jason jank's wrote about a meeting. That happened shortly after that loss to the rams can you take us inside that meeting room and just explain what went down russia's meeting with the coaches normal game planning type of meeting and he has suggestions he is giving input usually does and his suggestions just weren't dismissed. There were dismissed in a way that russell didn't feel appreciate it. And i think that is really important. I'm sure they disagree in every meeting ever but in this particular instance rust belt that he was not being appreciated so rushed stormed out was basically this idea that. How dare anyone in this building. Be dismissive of my ideas. I am of the quarterback was almost like kevin durant warriors when he was like no way up. I'm kevin durant russell wilson and he rustled perceives him to be someone who has succeeded. In spite of what's been around him not because of running for his life making the pro bowl with battle lines perceive that to be like the story of his career. And you get to week eleven. And it's like do. Just chill out. We got this no. You don't don't get it. I got it and that forced him out the door. Russell in the second half of the season was which is not himself like he was twenty eighth in yards per attempt in his final eight games he was sixteenth. In a touchdown percentage nineteenth in passer rating. These are bad numbers. These are not just like below average twenty nine yards per attempt man that was lower than the cincinnati bengals. Even when the circumstances are bad around russell he's been good enough to elevate situation still played inefficient level and twenty twenty was the first time it was like. Wow he's not able to elevate the lack of talent or execution of preparation around him and it produced like some of the worst numbers of his career certainly produced the worst playoff game of his career against the rams in the wild round sitting meeting big. Who's going into other sack four sacks two takeaways the interception return for the touchdown and floyd now all right. Let's fast forward a few weeks to the super bowl. The seahawks have been knocked out by the rams in the wildcard round and russell. Wilson is at super bowl. Fifty five in tampa bay sitting with none other than commissioner. Roger goodell mike. Tell us what you found in your reporting about russell. Wilson's experience at the super bowl. You know it's really interesting. Because i tweeted during the super bowl. That antonio brown caught a touchdown from tom brady in front of russell. Wilson there is the pass for the touchdown. What drive a super bowl. Winning drive that brady's only done throughout his whole career. I kind of just said it like star cast the as a joke. Not really thinking about how russell fell and then as our reporting i was like okay so i i was right like he is really upset. And it's so many factors. There is the fact that tom brady is in. The super bowl is the fact tom. Brady's they're playing pine. A good line is the fact that tom brady is playing in a system. That gives him some atonomy like got to pick players gronk. Antonio brown is the fact that mahomes is there again laying for again in a system that like essentially like his talents. The last time also played in the super bowl loss of tom brady seven years later prime many years. Tom brady's back. I suppose in a soup. Kitchen fuming so during the superbowl. He's texting his quarterback coach. And just close. Friend jake heaps. He's a local radio guy. Here jake to set it on the radio. He's talking about how russ was missed during the game texting him. They'll look the he had was in reflective of the text messages. I was receiving russell wilson. Just ultimately the overall sentiment was that he was mad that he was not lying in this thing and then russell spoke to the shortly after the game show. What's up with our line. You see that. Winning requires a good line and the gist of peace response. As far as i was told is about faith. And just you know we got this. And that just wasn't good enough for us

And the utility companies for $100 million What's interesting about this whole ordeal is what these power providers and Ercot knew long before. Many of us knew it That is that they did not have the capacity. They knew they didn't have the capacity. They knew that their that they had not winterized their sources of power.

The Top 15 Little-Known Secrets On How To Improve Your Focus

"If you don't know who i am. I am a author journalist and founder and executive director of the flow research collective. We study peak human performance where research a training organization on the research side. We work with scientists at ucla at stanford companies like deloitte energetics. Like that on the training side we work with everyday from the us special forces through executives in fortune. Five hundred companies essentially google etc microsoft. All the way up to the general public and focus on is kikkoman performance. What does it take to be your best when it matters. Most what does it take to level up your game like never before and most of my career has been spent studying peak performers. What i thought i was going to do today. Vision asked me to speak a little about my work on flow. Which will get to some of. You might be familiar with and a little bit about focus. And what i thought i would do is talk about fifteen things that peak performers know about focus and attention or routinely do surrounding focus attention and flow that most of us miss and this is something that is fairly common that i've noticed over peak performance. Meaning if you want to train people up in flow for example take repeat performers and regular people. Everybody can learn the flow stuff that works fine but afterwards peak performance can sustain it and most everybody else drop back towards baseline over time and a lot of that is peak performers to a lot of stuff through unconsciously along the way a lot of focus that the rest of us missed. So i thought i would talk about these things. We're going to start out with more general ideas about peak performance and get very very focused on focus as we move along so i wanna start with a really obvious statement but you see it very very consistently in all people formats which is a realization. That life is never going to be anything more or less than what you choose to make it. I like to talk about this. And i like to say there are only a couple things. We know absolutely for sure that we absolutely certain about the first is that we get one shot at this life. We know that for sure. Maybe we'll get more. Maybe we don't. We know for sure that we got one shot at this life. We also know we're going to spend about a third of it asleep. Which tells us that the only real question is what we do with the remaining two-thirds right. That's the only question that matters. And what p performers had figured out is that there's no magic pill nothing spectacular is ever gonna happen from them. I was just talking to andrew. Ubuntu neuroscientist at stanford and we do a lot of work with and heap says ever people former learn the same lesson. It is always crawl walk. Run there's no shortcuts. there's no way to get faster. You were going to crawl. Then you're going to walk then you're going to run over and over and over again. This brings us to the second thing which is building on the first. there are no shortcuts. There are no hacks in fact when we talk about p. performance after twenty five years of studying the neurobiology the science what goes on in the brain and the body when people perform their best can tell you. There are no shortcuts. There is quite simply getting your biology to work for you rather than against you. That is everything we mean by peak performance a different way. We sort of talk about this at the floor. Research collective as we like to say personality doesn't scale biology scales in other words. If you're in a looking through the kind of self improvement space at any level if somebody is trying to teach you what worked for them. They figured something out. This works may let me teach it to you. It's going to work for you. They're light they're absolutely lying. In fact that's a really great way to rue lives. I can guarantee one of the other truce peak performance. We don't like to say out loud is what works for me is almost guaranteed not to work for you. Personality doesn't scale why there are foundational things that have a lot to do with p. performance where you are on the introversion extroversion scale for example. How active are your dopamine receptors. Things like that. They are genetically coded for and laid down environmentally in. A lot of them are locked up before we ever become adults.

Jeff Bezoss second act

"Now. That jeff bezos is leaving his role as amazon ceo. Everyone's wondering what the future holds for one of the wealthiest people in the world. In fact this doesn't mean bazo stepping out of the spotlight at all. It's actually more likely that his spotlight will just be getting larger joining me to discuss. This is recode teddy cypher. Hey so does this. News about basil's mean less pressure on him overall. Or any less scrutiny. I think you can make a good argument. That scrutiny on basis himself is actually going to increase even though he's no longer. Ceo of amazon. You know this is somebody who has become a symbol in some ways of of one extreme in american capitalism He's now the second wealthiest person. I don't think that's going to mean that much less scrutiny. But obviously you know he's gonna fade right. When amazon is called a testify on capitol hill. it probably won't be jeff bezos. Who's gonna be there it'll be successor. Andy jazzy but bezos is going to be under a lot of pressure to do good for the world with this money. Which is something. That basis is going to have to navigate so i don't think he's fading from from public eye. He's going to be executive chairman of the company. And now he's going to have to answer questions about him as a person in a way that he has only really begun to over the last couple of years. Basil's actually has reputation for not sharing his money. He hasn't signed the giving pledge he hasn't promised to give away all of his money in his lifetime. Do you think that he'll finally start stepping up and becoming a big time. Philanthropist like some of beers bill gates and otherwise so basis over the last few years has started to part with more and more of his fortune as scrutiny has been increasing on him. You know the biggest commitment in charity last year from anybody was ten billion dollars that basis set aside for climate change research which is a huge amount of money. He also a couple of years ago. Set aside two billion dollars for a homelessness initiatives and for a series of montessori preschools. He's developing so. I think you could definitely say five years ago. That he was not on the scene but now he he's emerging on it and look. I mean there's still a lot more money to go. I mean two hundred billion dollars is hard get rid of it really is but he is As becoming more and more famous. I think you see him starting to understand that you can't really get away with being so parsimonious just as a lot of pressure rummy whether whether that's Motivating him or you know. His belief in the causes motivating him. There is indisputable public pressure. When you're the richest person not just one of many which people now. What about his space boundary. Gms bezos has said in the past that he wants to spend the majority or could spend the majority of his money on blue origin. He founded the company a long time ago. Can you remind us what the company is. What has been doing sure so. Basis has been selling a billion dollars a year of amazon shares to finance blue origin and blue origin is actually two decades old. I think we forget that this has been around for way longer than his philanthropic projects Blue origin is Spacecraft company that's trying to commercialize private speech travel It's frequently said in the same breath as spacex. Which is the private space travel company financed by a different tack. Billionaire the only person who's in the same stratosphere wealth as him Hummus elon musk. So musk in. Bezos are two billionaires who are at the forefront of private investment in space now. I'm not an expert on everything Space related but generally blue origin is seen as lagging spacex. Now is that because betas an financing and enough orient spend enough time on it if that is the case then you gotta feel good about Future given that basis has a lot of money leftovers. We just talked about and that he is going to be spending more time on his hands to to maybe dig into this. So you've got the philanthropist bezos the star man and potentially base the media mogul any insight into what he wants to do at the washington post. Yeah those are the three Three doors jeff as is gonna walk through over the next couple of decades. He's only h fifty seven so he's got a long time to go. Basil's bought the post. I guess now seven eight years ago in what is now seen as as a bargain deal. Probably you know he gets high marks for overseeing the post. It's you know he's given it a lot of runway. It is now profitable You know it's obviously facing uncertain. Future like all big media. Companies are after the trump era can the heap subscriptions coming At a same clip can the key public interest in their work. As high as it's been over the last few years oppose searching for new editor which is going to be a process that i imagine basis will be involved with in some capacity and look he. He has said that this is part of his work to defend kind of american democracy so I don't know if he's an invest more money in the post now profitable. It's privately held but he will probably be more available for phone calls if anyone has a neon complaints about washington post stories

"Guys. Welcome to another session of the heap wounds. Podcast it's actually a really nice day here in central florida and my my guest is. It's early for him And and and we were just laughing and talking about that a little bit in and actually it's really funny. I've known jerome for a long time. Right i remember. We met thrive for the first time. We were sitting across the aisle from each other in the vip section. And we just. I just have followed him ever since and and i'll be honest with you. I don't follow a lot of people on social media right and I just i just love. He's a man of integrity. he's a father he's a husband. He's a man of god he what's really good about who he is is the epitome of people that i want to have in my life and and i would say One of the things. I i like to do on my podcast. Is i like to encourage our guests and learn from them but encourage them to and we were just praying beforehand. And i believe that. I believe and i just wanna speak this over my brother be as we get started that i believe that the even though he's had massive success and everything that he does but i believe that god is going to use him to build the kingdom in a greater way in the in the years to come in and that he's going to you know he he's a he's a father. I watched how he interacts with his children. He's a great dad You know and and and the bible very clear about that it says when you raise your children in the ways of god when they they won't forget what department you and i know drome can say this too. We both married up. We have amazing spouses. That encourage us in in in in jerome has met leeson. You knows at lisa. Lisa is kind of You know in in the book of proverbs it talks about a virtuous godly woman. And i always say that. If if i whatever ever turn to proverbs thirty one. I see my wife's picture there. And i see my wife's picture there because she challenges me. She encourages me. She pushes me to be better. And so when. When i when i look at the people that i want to have on my podcast jerome. No is that person. He's you know. I it's really funny. He started in the direct sales industry back in the day. I read that about him. You know he and let me tell you something you learn a lot by being in that industry you you learn to not want things for people they don't want for themselves. You learn leadership skills. There's just a lot of things that you learn and so i dislike it that. He's he's an entrepreneur like he has multiple streams of income. Like i if if i used my dad's term for jerome. My dad would say jerome. Has his roofers card right like back in the eighties when you when you did all of these different things. My en- drum does trump doesn't even know this but my dad was a major construction forman for a large construction company whiting turner one of the largest construction companies in the world. And my dad was just a workaholic. He that's all he did like he would. He would leave it like five in the morning and he would come home at like nine o'clock at night and that's all he did and i think probably out of all the things that my dad is instilled in me. Drome is is that and i see that in you like he and when you think about real estate like he's he's he's a contractor. He's he's a he's likes to build he. He likes to invest he. It was really funny. I was he. He doesn't know this. So he's gonna figure this out now but i. I've been watching some of his videos because And those of you know our story we had somebody still about a half a million dollars from us in two thousand eighteen in two thousand nineteen and then at thrive. We won the monumental business. Award thrive in two thousand nineteen. And now things have started to shift back another direction. So we're i want to be able to learn from jerome in have multiple streams of income be involved in real estate. I was watching one of his videos yesterday. About how to invest without having any money and he's just brilliant like he's he it's really funny. He's gonna laugh so my podcast went live. Today was what daniel quack. Which i saw that you were you guys were just together. I think and and and i saw you visited with him. And so it's it's funny. How god works at out. You have to men of god back to back that are that are that are good friends and We we we we. We don't believe in coincidence. Jerome and so Drown welcome to the he phones. Podcast my friend. I love you. And i appreciate you so much and i'm glad that you're here with me today. Thank you so much really appreciate you having me and yet it's been it's been a few years i it's funny.

As Another Year Ends, Remember - You Still Have Time

"There's often a lot of anxiety at this time of the year is people sit back and reflect and realize they haven't achieved all they wanted to achieve or maybe they haven't arrived at the place where they thought they would be by now but the reality is i think they've lost sight of the fact that for most of them they still a lot of time left. I mean this year. I've spoken to people in the fifties who've lost jobs. They're worried they're not going to get another job like that again. They're worried that at fifty they might need to find another career. But that's okay. There's plenty of time for act two or even three. It's not really that big a deal in search of running out of time and similarly talking to kids in their twenties and even thirties who are worried that they haven't yet decided what career path they want to take and they're worried they're running out of time. To get started doesn't matter now again to be clear that does not mean if you're in your twenties you're going to continue riding on mom and dad's dime and not do anything and just wait till you work it out absolutely not you go out and tasted you go out and try stuff you go out and get a job doing anything you know. Working in the garden and cleaning dishes cleaning toilets. Whatever joe packing boxes whatever job you can get you get a job and you keep trying enticing and eventually you'll find your groove similarly for the guys and girls and they fifties that doesn't mean you just sit back and white until something comes your way now. Maybe you've got gotta go out and driving uber for a while. Not just to keep money on the table and keep food on the table and money in your pocket but just to keep you active and keep you going and keep you engaged and interested in. What's what's going on around you but either way whether you're in your early twenties and having worked out a career with your in your fifty plus and have lost a career need to think about rebooting point is either way chances. Are you've got a heap of time left. So don't let that time running out become a major stress for you go out. Try it to moving the needle forward. Keep moving the ball forward and endowed stress about the fact that you may be running out of time because chances are you're actually doing k. And on that happy note do have a happy new. You have a safe new year problem. A lot of fireworks going on this year problem that a lot of big parties going on this year. But hey if we're still here. We go through another year so happy new year and other forward to seeing you again tomorrow which is two thousand and twenty one. O mental note.

Turns out that the universe is growing heaps faster than we expected

"The european space agency is a spacecraft is the gift that keeps on giving telescopes latest is measuring the parallel axes of over a billion stars. Paradoxes are tiny shifts in star's apparent positions which reveal their distances and the ones measured by guy are quoting astrophysicist. Joe bovi by far the most accurate and precise distance determinations and quotes now apart from just being cruel. Why is this important because included in the one point. Three billion star measurements are some special stars whose distances can be used to calculate farther cosmological distances. Meaning some big questions have been thrust into new more accurate lights namely the hubble tension the hubble tension refers to the expansion of the universe and these statistically significant discrepancies between calculations and measurements quoting quantum magazine. The cosmos is known ingredients and governing equations. Predict that it should currently be expanding at a rate of sixty seven kilometers per second per mega carsick meaning that we should see galaxies flying away from us sixty seven kilometers per second faster for each additional mega of distance yet actual measurements consistently overshoot. The mark galaxies receding too quickly. The discrepancy thrillingly suggests that some unknown quickening agent may be a foot in the cosmos and quotes. So what's going on well to make headway on figuring it out. Scientists have needed to reduce potential sources of error in the measurements especially when it comes to the distance to nearby stars. And thanks to guy. Oh we now have a ton of new exceptionally more. Accurate measurements to work with and astrophysicists are stoked papers are being turned out with new calculations at top speed. The how do these calculations work quoting again in broad strokes. The way to gauge cosmic expansion is to figure out how far away distant galaxies are. And how fast they're receding from us. The speed measurements are straightforward. Distances are hard. The most precise measurements rely on intricate cosmic distance ladders. The first wrung consists of standard candle stars in and around our own galaxy. That have well-defined luminosity. He's in which close enough to exhibit para lacks the only sure way to tell how far away things are without traveling there. Astronomers then compare the brightness of these standard candles with that of fainter ones in nearby galaxies to deduce their distances. That's the second rung of the ladder knowing the distances of these galaxies which are chosen because they contain rare bright stellar explosions called type one. A supernova allows cosmologists to gauge the relative distances of farther away galaxies that contain fainter type one a supernova 's the ratio of these far away galaxies speeds to their distances gives the cosmic rate and quote so the precision of the tax being that i rung of the ladder is of utmost importance and can change the whole calculation. If it's off and that is why astronomers are so stoked about this new data it really could hold the key to understanding the question of the hubble attention that they've been trying to crack for years

Springtails: Nothing to be afraid of

"The first thing to say about spring tells is that probably not something. The yoga sports on the lease of your plants. They like moist places. And that means you most want you to see them on the surface of your soil particularly if you've just watered or perhaps if you lift up apart and look underneath inside a cashpoint possibly you will see lots of little creatures roaming about. They're about the size of a full stop and there are hundreds if not thousands of species. I think there's about two hundred and fifty different species of spring tail here in the uk so as well as into the in your house plant pots. You might also find them outside. You'll compost heap or in part of dump leaves on the characteristic that gives them their name is their ability to spring. But don't get them confused with fleas. They are different creatures. And do not have the capacity to blunt. You or your pets or indeed. You'll houseplants these are really agent creatures. Apparently there are fossil's of spring tales. Going back to four hundred million years ago the know insects they are heck supports which means they've got six legs. I've said that detroit officials while that means they feed on any kind of decaying matter in the soil. They also feed on fungi and algae and that sort of thing so they serve a wonderful purpose in breaking down organic matter. The thing that makes the spring tale jump is called for keeler earned it is of wishbone shaped appendage kind of detail that sits underneath the spring tales belly and when it's surprised for example by you lifting up the port where. It's been hiding this little spring flicks up and propels the spring tail into the air. And apparently this leap is the equivalent of me jumping over. The eiffel tower says pretty impressive. I'll link in the show notes to a wonderful video. Featuring sir david at bra or should i say our lord. God david attenborough talking about spring tales. The column bola class as they unknown and showing how they actually go about springing. It's really amazing to watch. They also have an amazing cheap on the head which they use to moisture is their body basically they have to stay moist in order to survive and most patches of ground on all seven continents of the world will contain about one hundred thousand spring tales per square meter wells' so they are everywhere and there isn't really any great reason for concern if you see and the old spring tail in your soil or under your parts. Because they're gonna go somewhere moist. They are breaking down organic matter. It may be a sign that you're a little bit to dump if maybe you're seeing spring tales in the soil of say cacti and succulents but if you seeing them in the soil of the plants in you've just watered or you're lifting up a part there some there it's really not something to worry yourself about. Just take a look at those tells on wonder at how amazing they are. The other thing to note is that they do mainly wonder about that. Jump everywhere so if you see some small creatures about the size of a full stopped moving around not necessarily jumping the could very well still be spring tails but if you disturb them you may find that one or two will jump and the color very say anything from very dark gray to white to brown. But as i say. The main indication is their location if they are in that soil and they're not doing anything with these. If your plot unusually the location of the creature gives you a really good indication of what it is if it's white and fluffy and in the crevices of your succulent than it's probably a mealy bug if it's a white and fluffy and it's in the roots of your plant while check it carefully. Because it could be micro rizal. Fungi strands but it could also be mealy bugs again. Your hand lenses really useful here. If it's something on the back of your leaves are white grainy stuff. That's probably the shed skins of your spider mites. If you've got really good vision or use a hand lens you should be able to see the brown crab like spider mites wandering around aphids. Well they usually tackle the new soft growth on plants often find them on. Flower stems or on new growth of leaves and thrifts well. They don't look that much different than spring tails but they are bigger and generally you'll find them wondering about your plant leaves as opposed to on the soil and if he wants to get a closer look at the spring tales in your life. Then dave wilson has written an excellent book called the garden jungle or gardening to save the planet which i highly recommend has a good technique to suggest for gathering some up. Dave suggests that you get some compost or leaf mold or indeed the material that's in your plant pots and put it into a funnel under warm lamp sick that funnel on top of some kind of container and the spring tails will head away from the heat and into the container and then you can take a closer look at them a fun activity if you have kids or grandkids to entertain this festive season

Will a coronavirus vaccine *actually* stop you getting COVID?

"Today is stuck to kirsty short from the university of queensland. Welcome kissy thank you very much. We've got heaps of questions to put kosti but they also have clustered around a similar theme which is about the vaccine and what it can and can't or has been proven to do what it hasn't been proven today so one of the things that we've talked about quite a lot on current cost is the distinction between whether the vaccine can stop disease in someone who's infected with covid whether it can stop infections at all. Why would we even be making this distinction. Yeah look this is such an important distinction to make. And i think at sometimes a nuance that gets lost in all the discussions of the various craven nineteen vaccines. The reason it's important to make this decision is because a vaccine that protects against just disease is great. And that's going to really really important job. In reducing the number of people that are hospitalized and really sick with covid nineteen but there is a risk that if the vaccine only protects against disease and doesn't protect against transmission. If you do sort of staggered introduction of the vaccine into the population you could have have individuals who vaccination that potentially become sort of silent spreaders of covid nineteen in so far as they don't develop even maybe symptomatic disease but if they can still be infected and transmit they could pose a risk to unvaccinated individuals. So it's really something that we need to dr and we need to watch and it's really something that we need to factoring into her in terms of how the vaccine is rolled out in the community disposable people who don't understand a to understand either is how you can get protection against disease and not against the virus and i think it's it's a really good question and it comes down to a little bit of the anatomy of at the viruses infecting. So if you imagine that a vaccine protects really well you'll lower respiratory tracts. He talking about your lungs and that's really important because you can imagine that as soon as you start getting inflammation virus replication in your lungs. You're gonna get very sick now. Think about your upper respiratory tract in contrast and. That's sort of we're talking about yours now if you get far replication in now you might not get that seat because it's you right and that's not the primary side of gas exchange but it might be really easy for the virus to transmit so once area is if you have a vaccine that protects the lower respiratory tract very well but not the opera spiritual tracked you could have scenario where you have a vaccine that protects against severe disease but it doesn't protect against disease transmission

"Once upon a time there was an armourer named martin. Martin spent his days working with metal using it to create glistening swords sparkling shields and full suits of yes glittering armor and everyone agreed that of all the arms in the city. Martin was the greatest. Oh you should see. The sword mar made for me last week. It schumer's like moonlight on the water. Well you should see the shield he made for me. It glistened like the stars. I don't doubt it. The suit of armor he made for me is so shining so bright. It's reflects i chimera. Martin lived with his children natalia. And conrad in a tiny house at the edge of town. Martin's shop was in the basement talia and conrad loved traipsing down the steps to watch their father work i. He retired on his thick leather apron. Then he would heat up his medal into glow to fiery yellowish orange and grew soft and bendable after that he would use a heavy iron hammer to forge the metal into all different shapes. Then you would let the metal cool and he polished rubbing and scrubbing until indeed. It reflected like a mirror one summer morning. Martin told natalia conrad that he would be gone for the day on business. Listen you to. I need to deliver a full suit of armor to a customer who lives far off in the countryside. He turned to natalia natalia. You're the oldest. So i want you to look after your little brother. While i'm gone of course father i'd be happy to conrad rolled his eyes. Oh come on father. I don't need my older sister to babysit. I'm a big kid now. I know you're a big kid. Conrad and getting bigger every day. But for now you'll do. Your sister says hokey dokie. I have a long trip ahead of me. Need to skedaddle. Have fun today. My dears martin kissed his children goodbye and out the door as he disappeared down the street. Natalia turned to conrad with twinkling eyes. I have an idea little brother. The circus is in town. They're performing in the market square right in the middle of the city. Would you like to see it. Conrad's face broke into a grin. You bet i liked to see the circus. Let's go when natalia and conrad reached the market square. They were greeted by all sorts of enchanting sites. Agile walkers tiptoeing towering tightropes graceful acrobats swinging from flying trapezes plus nimble-fingered jugglers funny face clowns and hearted riders standing breath and tall on the backs of gleaming galloping horses during a break in the show. Natalia and conrad wandered around the square and saw vendors selling all sorts of goodies toys. Books candies but then. Hey natalia something else caught conrad's look over there. Look conrad pointed toward a jagged heap of stones in a shadowy narrow alley off the square. There's the old stone building to one worthy. Say the bacilus cliffs. Natalia felt her blood run. Cold everyone in town knew the legend of the basilisk. It was said that the bacilus kept the body of a dragon. The head of a rooster tail of a serpent down in the dink dark cellar of the old stone building. The bacilus stood guard over a magnificent treasure and if you stared into the bacilus glowing red eyes you would immediately turn to stone so sister conrad's mouth lifted into a mischievous smile. Are you thinking what i'm thinking. Natalia's is grew wide. Wait a minute brother. Your not thinking of actually going in there are you. What about the bassil. Ihsc bacilus sh- massa lisk don't be such a 'fraidy cat sys like dads said. I'm a big kid now. And i'm going to prove it

Jesus The Scapegoat

"As the day breaks. Jesus has been through three religious trials and the rulers declare him guilty the next step. If they want to enact the death penalty is to present him to the roman governor pontius pilot because only the romans can hand down the death penalty so he's taken from his religious trials to a civil trial with pilot. The people accused jesus of claiming to be a king. since that would pose a threat to the roman authorities. In luke's account they even say jesus had forbidden them to pay their taxes to caesar. But we know that's ally based on his response to them in luke twenty pilot questions about being a king and in john's account. Jesus explains that his kingdom is not of this world otherwise his followers would be fighting. And they aren't. He says he's not there to fight but to speak truth in pilot responds with the question. That has always been popular response to the gospel. What is truth. In luke's account pilot jesus to king herod before proceeding with things. It seems like pilot is trying to find a loophole for having to make a judgment because jesus from another jurisdiction even though his alleged crimes have been committed in jerusalem so he sends him off to king. Herod a higher authority. The king and his soldiers tried to wound and shame jesus by putting a purple robe and a crown of thorns on his head mocking his royalty and send him back to pontius pilot so now pile has to make some kind of judgment call but before jesus was ever brought to pilot for the first time while he was still being beaten and mocked at the high priest house overnight. Pilots wife was asleep in her bed. Having a nightmare about jesus it was so upsetting that she sends word to pilot to leave. Jesus alone maybe. This dream is from god as a means of heaping judgment on pilot when he surrenders jesus to be crucified. Or maybe the streets from satan who continues to try to thwart the crucifixion. Because he knows it means his defeat when pilot returns to the people declares jesus innocent but he offers him an option he says typically on passover. We release a prisoner so should be jesus or this guy named barabbas barabbas is a convicted felon who committed multiple crimes including robbery insurrection. And even murder and the people choose to release barabbas. If you with us during the old testament you may remember the story of the sacrificial goat and the scapegoat from vivica sixteen one goat is sacrificed as a sin offering and the other is set free into the wilderness. This is a picture of that story. Actually that was a picture of this story and it's also a picture of us. We are barabbas. Set free because christ was kept as the sin offering. The people demand that jesus be crucified pilot tries to dodge any responsibility by handing jesus over to the people but no matter how dismissive he is and no matter. How many times. He washes his hands. Passivity doesn't equal innocence as the people respond. They accidentally speak a truth. That is anyone's only hope in matthew. Twenty seven twenty five. They say his blood beyond us on our children realize it but that is the only hope for any of us that the blood of a sacrificed would cover. Our sins is willing sacrifice. Paid for the sins of all gods kids

I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple at effect. So get yourself anchor make voice her. Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

"One other thing I always recommend folks to do is to be able to start small on. There are a lot of people who get excited about the notion of analytics and what it can do for their business and they should get excited. But you can't just like a great product you can't solve all the problems immediately you have to take it step by step. About integrations because one of mayor trends that I've seen in napr ministry is that. It's really hard to build a platform that solves every single product. We seen category leaders in different areas of their pregnant development cycle. Obviously really exists it's at the core of that. But at the same time, you want to bring data capabilities from other partners so Maybe, more known what your your thinking around integrations and how will what are some of those good.

"heap" Discussed on Programming

"To discuss the binary heap data structure. Just like us your. We're going to start by introducing the structure and describing structure. We are going to try to imagine it because this way we'll be able to get a better understanding of how it works next to discuss the different operations that are efficient on top of binary heaps. And finally we're going to discuss a couple of practical use cases including purity cues which are also we're going to mention them regularly during the results and we're also going to mention keep sort which is sorting algorithm which as you can imagine uses heaps just like any other concept that we have described so far in the programming podcast binary heaps could be very valuable for you not only during golden kinch reviews but also in practice although Elsie. That's encoding interviews. They might be a little bit more calm compared to in practice birds well. It's good to know about their existence and is good to know when you can potentially apply them anyway so as you can imagine binary heaps are a binary data structure right in fact binary binary heaps are quite similar to binary trees with the main difference that they have one main constraints. The parents of two notes is always either bigger or smaller than its children. That's it we call the first type of heaps the wild way in which the parents always bigger and his children we call them Max. Heaps and the winds were the parent is always smaller than his children. We call him mini heaps for the sake of simplicity in this episode. We're going to focus all your hips but everything that we're going to discuss. It applies in both cases. Now let us try to imagine this data structure where every parents is smaller than its children. This way going from the leafs to the route we're eventually going to reach the smallest adamant in the binary heap so the roots of the binary heap is going to be the smallest element and in pretty much all binary trees. Were keeping a respirator. Direct reference to the rules of the tree which means that we have constant access to the smallest elements in our binary heap so we always maintain a direct reference was the smallest elements and we can always access it without performing any additional TRAVERSO. That is fantastic. That's why binary heaps are very frequently used for implementation of priority queues. What is a priority queue? Well in a priority queue. We are maintaining a collection of items order by their purity rights for example if we want to pick the least loaded server among a collection of servers we can pull them in a priority queue depending on the loads of each individual server. We can pose the least thought server on top of the period q while the server takes a request we can update his priority and find. It's right position in the Q. So that's the way we're going to take the next lease slow the server at the top of the pure to cure and so on and so forth. Now you might be thinking why should we even care about binary heaps can't we just use a simple array in this case we can just hear from the servers and every time when a certain server changes we can just sort dairy and just half the lease border always at the top rights should be quite simple. That's absolutely right. We can absolutely use this algorithm where we're sorting the servers depending on their lot. And this way we're going to half complexity and Logan because each comparison based sorting algorithm houses complexity at best now when we have to operate over several millions of server or several thousand server and who has to perform this sorting very frequently when given server as its `priority thinks may get tricky because soaking oldies servers with unloading complexity might not be very efficient. If we have several millions of server this multiplier at the beginning and can take a lot of time. You might you think he will. We don't have to resort. We can just reorder array so once any of the server. Updates ITS PURITY. We can just find its position in this already sorted array and drop it there. That's great rights like we're dropping the complexity of this algorithm from end Logan to only end because we're iterating or the entire array until we eventually find the right position of the server. Whose loads capacity. We just changed. This is more efficient algorithm but is for sure not the most efficient Wanda to Kim us because we need to integrate over all these servers and for and this could be quite slow the awesome think about binary heaps is that we can drop the complexity of this operation for finding the right position of particular element from an to just log in and log in is a fascinating function because if we have ten million servers log 'em look of these ten million is going to be only about twenty three so imagine if we have ten servers who in we need to perform all the twenty three operations order to find the right position of certain server wants it updates. Its priority this way we can very efficiently. Keep track of the priorities of these individual elements in our priority queue and be able to efficiently provides element with highest priority right so as you can imagine binary heaps they support a couple of very common operations one of them. We already discussed taking the element and the top of the heap which has the mean value. Which has the minimum value in the entire collection for heaps and other operation is inserting an element and a third operation is extracting on adamant. We're going to discuss how we can add an element because it is a simple operation. But before that let us briefly discussed how can organize a binary heap What data structure we can use. In order to represent the usual way to implement binary heaves using an array now you might be thinking. You've got a razor fix is if we want to add more elements than Derek best where we can use the namic race. In this case we can just recites. You're a whilst we exceed its capacity does what's in most scenarios we do with binary heaps when implementing them with the race right but the second question is array. That's a Leonard Structure. How we're going to represent a three there. There is one really interesting trick that I want to tell you. About and district simplemente very conveniently a tree like structure with array without much trouble for every element and we can keep its children. It's two children at indexes two times and plus one and two times and plus two and that's it now let us think how we can implement insertion into such binary heap represented. Within the way we have our array. We're going to push the element that we want to insert as the end of the array and tries after that it is going to bubble up until it eventually reaches its correct position. How TO BUBBLE UP SO ONCE? We push the element at the end. It which is going to be a child of a particular parents in order to find the parents of the element just pushed. Gent. We're going to take its index and divided by two this way after round the results. Which means that we're going to just ignore the decimal part of division. We're going to find the parents element and we're going to compare the enemy just that we just inserted with the value associated with the parent index. That we just calculate if the element that just inserted is smaller rigging to swap with these two elements and. That's we have the guarantee that we can preserve the structure of the heap jobs because the parent that we just swapped with its child is already smaller than its other child so we can just put it as siblings. We're going to continue this process until we eventually reached the first adamant in our binary he which is the top of the heap or until we figure out that the current parents of the adamant that reinserting is already smaller right. So now we know about two different operations in the heat getting the maximum element or minimum adamant in many heaps and inserting adamant about deletion will not be able to cover in this episode but are strongly encourage. Take a look at the resources associated with vitally he does. I have applied at podcast dot M. Dot com at the end. I want to spend some time discussing the different use cases for binary heaps. I remain. Tioned that we can use them for implementing pure accuse and purely accused their essential in the dextrous shortest path Algorithm when it comes down to finding a path in a graph usually binary heaps earn the most efficient way we can implement purely cue for dextrous algorithm. But they're a decent way so you can take advantage of them there. We can also use them for sorting numbers. So how are we going to sort a list of numbers by using a binary heap? Well Simple I. We're going to insert the elements in the heat. One by one which is going to cost us and logging operations right after that. We're going to extract the elements from the heap by one. We're always need to get the smallest element I for mean heaves or the biggest adamant I for Max keeps and this. Take another and logging operations because we have an numbers and if we want to extract the number is going to take us logan time so and multiplied by logging. That's how actually heap sort works. So see with one episode. We already covered heap sort. And Binary heaps pretty cool right. Finally I have also linked to really interesting paper which explains how we can implement a load balancing by using binary heaps right so this is what we covered binary heaps we discussed quite a few interesting things in fact we talked about when binary heaps reused who for example for implementing period juice. We discussed Haldi compare for deportation of Cues compared to erase. We also discussed a couple of practical use cases such as a DICK STRESS SHORTEST PATH ALGORITHM HEAP. Sort and load balancing really. Thank you very much for joining this episodes until next time learn about the episodes. You can follow me on twitter at Ham get you.

"I am your host Sarah and I hope even having a wonderful weekend I have been having okay weekend in spring in northern California where it's been between eighty and ninety for the last week just you know in the winter you can wrap up in blankets and drink hot tea and outside it's outside and soak up some vitamin D. which is lovely but it just seems wrong anyway that's how my weekend has been going I hope your weekend spelled most of them with a why where you would not expect one so magic m. a. g. y. k. there's physic- with a y there's a slight with I discovered it on a lot of lists that say you know what should I read the titles of which are which they read now that I am finished Harry Potter or if you loved Harry Potter then you should read I do a little bit better but as I said it's seven seven book series the first one is called magic and let me give you the description at least of the first book the baby's father Silas heap comes across an abandoned child in the snow a newborn girl with violet eyes who is this mysterious baby girl and really happened to the heaps beloved son Septimus the first book in this enthralling series by Angie sage leads readers on a fantastic journey filled with quirky characters and magical rich with humor and heart okay so that sort of magical sense because it's the seventh son of a seventh son and you you kind of get the this is going to be someone important there's a lot a very classic fantasy elements in this book you know you've got characters who don't seem like much at first and who gets sent on these aren't necessarily bad guys but they annoy snot out of you anyway you know there's there's some teenagers here who are very very very teenage like so the book starts with what you hear about the midwife declaring Septimus heap dead with Silas Heap finding the baby in the snow and then we fast forward to ten years later the baby in the snow is celebrating her tenth birthday and things take off from there there's well it's recommended for readers of Harry Potter but it's you know as it should be very different from Harry Potter there is magic in it but wizards are are a group of people who study magic you can be born into a wizard family but it doesn't mean that you will be a wizard so in that way it's kind of like Harry Potter there's not sincerely a school for magic like hogwarts and there's other types of other types of magic so there are witches who don't exactly do magic per se but they do charms and potions there's a differentiation between witches and wizards there's also something called a hermetic scribe there the scribes who do a lot of translating who do a lot of spell work or work on spells I should say so if you need if you have a spell that needs transit when you take it to the hermetic scribes if you have a spell that is not working properly you take it to the hermetic scrap so there's all these different categories of people which I found really fascinating throughout the seven books the characters grow and Change Septimus heap is the seventh son of a seventh son so there are six he older brothers in this book and I will tell you the baby girl's name is Jenna so jenner grows up with these six heap brothers and you can imagine what that's like when you grow up in a large family in a small house with six very noisy brothers the heat brothers are a motley collection of very interesting characters you get to know some of them better than others the oldest one Simon definitely has growing pains and won't go too much into that because you should you should read and find out what's going on with Simon the writing is funny it's got it's got some great humor in it it's got some parts like I said were some of the characters I'm Gonna I'm GonNa go back to a Harry Potter analogy for those of you who've read Harry Potter maybe you'll you'll under Dan this may have felt something similar in order of the Phoenix Harry is whiny and we find out that there's reasons for that but he is so kind weighing in the book like you just want to reach the pages and shake him and say could you stop acting like this part of it is that you're an adolescent and part of it is that you know you got in your head but reading that book because I do not quite an annual reread but almost annual reread and and whenever I get order the Phoenix like oh can I just skip this book but never do there are characters like that and there are sections of the book that are like that where you're like okay I know these are growing pains but you are driving me a little bit crazy I would just like for you to stop now please him but she writes it in a way that the characters are human and they displayed and they're not just always happy go lucky things happen and they don't always react them in perfectly appropriate ways they get get cranky they get snarky Septimus and Sarah Heap as parents are loving and heck of their faults works definitely loving but yeah not not perfect not perfect paragon parenting let's let's let's just go with some alliteration there and actually the makes them a little bit more lovable although sometimes if you think about like growing up with them you'd be like well that would be interesting they are terribly organized they are terribly neat some scenes where people are horrified the state of their home so yeah you get Jenna you get the heap brothers and you get all of these adventures now you can understand with cases of mistaken identity and.

But basically the question kind of boil down to. Basically an algorithm to find the. The end. Let me see if I can find a way because basically the end smallest elements in a collection. And. Yeah. That's that's essentially the the way you can do it. Sorry. Sorry heap sort well. So ideally, do it without without sorting. And the way that I solve the problem was using an algorithm that the the person who was giving me this problem was not expecting. And I actually I ended up using quick select two, which is which is an algorithm that's kind of like based on on a quick sort and it happens in linear time and. I don't know the exact problem. But I do remember that clicks like was the fastest way to solve this. And he wanted me the solution. You wanted me to use was with heap. And so I was like, oh, well, I can I can actually do this faster with and he's like, I quit select is, and I was like, oh, well, it's that can do XYZ and then your time, and he was like well that I'm looking up on a PD. It looks really hard. I don't know if you know, I don't know if that's a great idea to to write that. I can do it like if you only do it. I can I can do it and it'll solve it. And then your time. And he was like if you really want to. But I really think you should try it another way. And so I finished it with quick select, and it was totally fine. And then he was like, okay. Well, can you think of a way to do this with a heap? And I was like, yeah, I could but it would be slower, and he's like just do it with a heap. It's like there's like why why would you want me to do? So the heat. This is literally slower than solving the way of our done. All right. Well, let's our question..
