142: The Meuse-Argonne Offensive (pt.1) The Lost Battalion - burst 2
"Charlie commands the 1st Battalion of the 308th Regiment in the 77th Division, aka the Statue of Liberty Division. The division commander is General Robert Alexander, and though a man of action, he's not the strongest leader or strategist. Indeed, his own superior officer, 1st Corps Commander General Howard Liggett, has actually wondered if Robert's promotion over the Statue of Liberty Division was a clerical error. Be that as it may, the 77th Statue of Liberty Division is now positioned to the right of the French, on the far left of the Muse -Argonne American sector, and this hard -nosed general is determined that his doughboys will drive the Germans back. Damn the costs. For Charlie's battalion, mostly rough and tumble Lower East Side melting pot New Yorkers, peppered with freshly arrived Westerners to replace their fallen, this means advancing a little less than a mile northward into the thick Argonne Forest, up the Charlevoix Ravine, taking the main German line, then pushing to the other side of the Charlevoix Valley to take a road and railroad on the next ridge.

A highlight from GEN C: How Real Estate Is Embracing Web3 With Julie Allen, SVP of Digital and Creative at Howard Hughes
"Gen C is the generation of the new Internet. In Gen C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid, digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. Avery, we are back. Episode 42 of Gen C. Where does the time go? I'm coming to you from Brooklyn, New York City. Where are you? I'm at home in Miami. Look at us, both home. This is rare. Very rare. This is actually the second most popular week to take off in corporate America. The first most popular is the week between Christmas and New Year's. The second is apparently the last week in August, right leading up to Labor Day. So it's actually a nice kind of quiet week to get some work done. This is my favorite week in New York because there is nobody here. You've got the place to yourself. You can get reservations, you can get parking spaces, anything you want in New York you can get on this specific week. Well, there's been some interesting stuff happening in the world of general web three. The first one, which may be the weirdest blockchain story that I've read in a really long time, is the idea that, you know, the people who make Parmigiano cheese, which is sought after around the world, they are adding edible microchips to the cheeses so you can verify that those cheeses are authentic and they are validating them as authentic on the blockchain. So this actually, for me, was a really interesting story because this is kind of the practical use case that we had said a long time ago. This is actually a great use of blockchain. It's a public system. You can verify it. The edible microchip part, a little bit weird because I think about, you know, you're at the Italian restaurant and someone's grating that cheese over you and I'm like, how much microchip am I just getting? Right. But I did think it was sort of a fun use of the blockchain. And I guess one of my questions for you is, do you think we will see some of these kind of more boring uses, but very practical uses of blockchain coming more to supply chain dynamics to inventories around the world? Yes, I do, especially in highly sought after goods, rare goods where authentication is a real problem. So that is an interesting use case. I would be curious the durability of said chips. How exactly does that work? So I need to read further into that. But I think blockchain verification is probably the most clear use case to me of blockchain outside of crypto like Bitcoin, I would say is like the killer use case for blockchain right now. There are others and verification is one of them. I don't know about Parmesan cheese verification being a large use case. It is rather niche. 100 ,000 wheels of cheese so far have been tagged. That is an impressive number. It really is. So let's closely follow that. Let's get in touch with these cheese folks. Maybe we can ask our dear friend Mags Calla who spent a lot of time in that region this summer brushing up on her Italian. That's true. So I keep wondering about the folks who are worried that Bill Gates is tracking them, what it think that that is a case of practical innovation.
Fresh update on "howard" discussed on Fox News Sunday
"History of Oaktree since its founding required a little bit more institutional framework and so we did have a dedicated CEO, Jay Winthrop, who did a great job of institutionalizing Oaktree further and all of our business processes away from the investment side that Howard and Bruce continue to focus on. Today we benefit from the efforts taken by Jay to have a very professional organization. That non -investment side of our business will be managed by Todd Moltz, who is a veteran of Oaktree, chief administrative officer of Oaktree, and former general counsel of the firm. So he will be taking on a lot of those institutional non -investment areas of the firm and Bob O 'Leary and I who run the opportunistic credit business in Bob's case and in the performing credit business in my case will take the mantle in terms of leadership strategic of the firm as co -CEOs. You're still both gonna be PMs, you're still gonna be running running funds and overseeing the investment. Absolutely. I think to do a good job running Oaktree we want to be as close to our clients as possible and to be as close to our clients as possible would mean that we need to be as close to the markets and actual investments as possible. When I sit down with clients I think if I bring any value to the it's table giving them really on the ground knowledge about what we're seeing in the markets from a risk and return standpoint and I think it's important as the CEO to also to have that framework. And 16 years is unusual these days staying at the same firm for that long. Tell us what makes Oaktree special? What's kept you there for quite a while compared to most of the industry seems to see people job hop from place to place. Yeah, Oaktree culturally is a very stable organization. You've met Howard several times you know that Howard is not somebody that changes his stripes and therefore Oaktree is not a place that changes its stripes. Which is great from a standpoint career because as a firm you know that they're not going to take wild risks just because everybody else is taking wild risks and then jeopardize the firm's existence as a result of those risks not panning out. We see that too all often in the hedge fund space and with other investment managers really going a little bit too far out on the risk spectrum in their investment style and therefore blowing themselves up and creating volatility in the lives of people that work at those firms. Oaktree's not been one of those places and I think personally you know working directly for Bruce Karsh has been a main part of the why reason I've decided to stay at the firm as long as I have because he is the type of person that I think any investor would like to You know calm cool collected very very strong instincts about people and businesses and behavior and the willingness to have a tremendous amount especially of conviction when others don't have the conviction. I think Bruce has shown that and time again in his career and so having the opportunity to learn from a guy like Bruce Karsh has the job really interesting and I haven't felt that 16 years has gone by slowly at all. I think it's very gone by very quickly. So I would imagine if you specialize in distressed debt investing you're not going to be an emotional flighty cowboy. Those guys don't survive. You have to be calm cool and collected. It's like a neurosurgeon. You have to be very precise and very measured and recognize how the crowd has lost its mind and you're going to take advantage of it. I get that sense from both Bruce and Howard a little bit contrarian and not given to overreactions. Absolutely. You have to be patient. You have to be unemotional and you have to know that there will be times where you're unpopular and that's okay. Really? Why do you say that? Because when you are investing, the rest of the world is fleeing. You are calling capital your when clients are hearing from the rest of their investment managers that it's an absolute bloodbath out there. Answering those questions takes some fortitude but the good news is at this point Oaktree is so well known for taking that type of contrarian bet that we're not suffering from that as much but it certainly is an important feature of being a distressed debt investor. And you mentioned at times you're unpopular but like we talked about earlier in 2008, 2009, 2007, if you're the only bid I would think people would be grateful that hey at least somebody's on the other side of the trade but for you guys there's no bid. Yeah they were grateful at the time but then when they saw our returns they were pretty upset about it. didn't Hey you make them sell, that was their decision, you were just there. Yeah it was the structures that were put in place prior to the GFC unfortunately were not conducive to that that type of a you know some would call it a six sigma event I don't know that it was but that type of an extreme reaction in the markets and and withdrawal from investors out of the market so rapidly these structures just weren't set up for it. Human nature is what human nature is going to be right if if someone is selling $100 bills for $50 they can't blame you if you're a buyer who told them to sell. That's quite fascinating. So you mentioned you want to stay close to what's going on in the investing world to fulfill this new role as incoming co -CEO. When you look at this present environment do you think of yourselves more as bottom -up credit pickers or or do you look at the macro environment and say hey we have to figure out what's going on there also. We're bottoms -up credit pickers. We are not macro forecasters, but we are macro aware. Understanding what's happening in the economy with technicals in the markets those influence or can influence the performance of certain sectors.

A highlight from Rob Parkes - Married To The Black Widow Part 2/2
"Welcome to Let's Be Frank, the men's mental health podcast. Join us as we break the stigma, embrace vulnerability and prioritise mental health in men. Together, let's use your voice. Guys, welcome back to Let's Be Frank, the home of men's mental health. Myself, Jack Howard, Mr Ryan Smith, and you join us with Rob Parks for the second half of our two part special. So without further ado, let's jump in where we finished off. Guys, enjoy. I know there's going to be listeners out there that will be going through that or have been through that, and I think it's a great topic to discuss with yourself who's had that experience. So the family court story for you then, what was it and how was it for you? Awful. I mean, it was really bad from pretty much start to finish. But I have to be careful because, unfortunately, the way in which the family court system works here is that you can't talk about any specific details about what happened within the family court. I can only publicly here share what happened before and the results of what happened afterwards. And, you know, if I was to go through what happened within that, you know, then there would be ramifications, which were problematic. But experience my was crazy. It was really bad, really, really terrible because, you know, over the course of, you know, multiple years, four, five years, you know, as many different cases, court cases ranging from, you know, simple contact orders all the way through to almost, well, you know, Victoria tried to take the kids off to Germany and tried to leave the country. And, you know, that extremely, extreme shift from what I thought the courts were supposed to do versus what they actually did was a real eye opener. I was not expecting. I think I, like a lot of guys, men actually, and women here, you know, who think that, you know, they go through, they have separations, which are not great, and they can't make the decisions. And you've got two people who you can't agree with, you know, with the children involved. And I think if I can just get to court, the court will be fair. It'll decide, it'll be, everything will be fine, and then we'll all be able to move on. The reality of that for me, and I think the reality of that for quite a considerable number of separated fathers particularly, is that that is not the case. The can default be as little as what happened to me, which is every two weeks you get the best part of less than 24 hours with your child. And for someone who is an engaged father who is trying to do, trying to be a father, I mean, let's be absolute, let's be frank about it. You're just trying to be a father, you're just trying to be a dad, you know, and you're doing the absolutely best thing that you possibly can do. But you can only do it in such a small window. And in order to be better, in order to be a better person, be a better dad, be a better man, you have to then fight even harder. And that can't be right. That can't be the way in which we think that a good parent would have to do. And me as a parent, me as someone who was trying to navigate through that system, who was staring down the barrel of thousands of pounds, of hundreds of thousands of man -hours trying to navigate a system which is designed to be incomprehensible. You're not supposed to understand how it works. Against someone who we can now acknowledge actively manipulates the system, actively gains and tries to genuinely confuse the very institutions that are supposed to protect the independence and look out for the kids. I mean, it was a disaster from start to finish. We don't like talking about other people's truths and how they work and stuff, but from what you're saying and the way it was portrayed on TV, that was very, very clear. When she was arrested, they wanted to interview and she was like, well, I've got this pain, I need to go and get checked at the hospital to try and push that back. So that was very, very clear. And one of the other experiences there about, you know, about that sort of not designed to kind of support and help you grasp what's going on, you know, for me was very, very apparent when my son was born. You know, my wife was at, you know, I left the room to get, I can't remember if it was food or the toilet. My wife was asked, is everything at home okay? Is he all right at home? But on the flip side of that, nobody actually come up and asked me. And so from what you're saying, it's quite evident through society that it's there at the beginning, there and all the way through. So, yeah, it's obviously not to your extreme, but I've had that sort of feeling and yeah, I'll sympathise with what you're saying. So during that, sorry Rob, during that time, just during that time through the family courts, obviously the kids were living with her, is that correct? Yeah. Yeah. And you'd see him every kind of like two weeks on the basis. How did you keep yourself going? Firstly, how did you keep yourself going through that point, which I know would be, you know, as dad's here, it is fucking hard. But also I'm going to ask a bit of a deep question that I feel a lot of people are always scared to ask it. We always do ask it. Did at any time during that period, did you have thoughts of ending it? Did you have thoughts of why? What is my purpose? Why am I here? Yeah, great question.
Fresh update on "howard" discussed on Fox News Sunday
"Scared that our clients capital was at risk and our jobs were at risk and the future of the the of world as we know it was a risk but Howard said you know we are paid to catch falling knives that's our job we need to do our work and make sure that we've done a very good amount of analysis to be comfortable with owning a business through a cycle at the creation value that we're investing at and if we do our jobs right that this will all turn out okay and it did I mean I think we we did and deliver strong performance during that period of time we returned a lot I of think most importantly our clients appreciated the return of capital and we were on a footing that if we wanted to we could have raised another 14 billion dollars right afterwards if we wanted to but you know we decided not to we decided that the opportunity set was less attractive coming out of the global financial crisis and we raised a fund that was less than half the size of the prior fund because we thought that you know just because we could raise capital doesn't mean that we should raise capital I recall reading and I know you can't say this but I recall reading that fund returned something like 19 % a year some just astounding number I'm curious when you're in the thick of it and it feels like the world is going upside down do clients start to get cold to feet people who committed to the B fund say hey you guys really want to be out here buying this as the world ends what what was the experience like in the midst of that yeah I mean I think Oaktree benefits from having really great clients and long history and you know Howard started investing in high -yield bonds in the Howard and Bruce and and Sheldon stone and their other partners began working together in and 1985 in 1988 and distressed that we had already delivered promises on that we had made to clients around the type of investing we would do and the responsibility that we would take in investing their their so capital they knew that of all the things of all the problems that they may have in book their book we were probably the least of their problems and so they were happy that we had the we provided the counter cyclical exposure that they needed at that time so we really didn't have any clients that were fleeing we certainly had clients that were nervous yeah and we're calling us and saying look I mean what's gonna happen my private equity book I mean if if you're buying debt in in you name it company at 20 cents to 60 cents and they're owned by you know marquee private equity firms what's going to happen with that and we feel that a lot of phone calls I think the most nervous we became was when the bank started failing when we were concerned or we became concerned that client capital held in those banks you know prime brokerages and such we were just worried at that some point that that could become a general unsecured claim in the bankruptcies of a cascading set of banks and that was probably was the peak of when we became most nervous but again if that were to happen if that had happened we would have probably been the least of the worries of of of politicians diplomats pastors but even that you guys so first you guys are disciplined you're structured you're not how boys that i make people feel pretty comfortable in second even those circumstances that's a stony in relationship of prime brokers is not an asset that other creditors can go after so if that's the worst concern yeah you guys just had the courage of your conviction to be in the right place at the right time right with the firepower coming up we continue our conversation with arman panosian incoming co c e o of oak tree capital management and head of performing credit discussing the of credit markets today i'm barry results you're listening to masters in business on bloomberg radio uh... bloomberg radio and and and in your podcast feed on the latest edition of the tape podcast a conversation with kevin timing at bloomberg allergens by expanding for silence and g m and holding the line on ford motivates uh... probably you know that the competitors to get in there and be a little bit more aggressive with with their negotiating in terms of what they're willing to give uh... but but uh... you you know know it it's it's not over yet you know they're still probably a ways to go and and you know things this like you might mean the biggest issues or the easiest issues the low -hanging fruit is handled we're
A highlight from The Lord Of The Rings Verus The Rings Of Power
"What's happening world? I'm your host The Wizard of Woz, Benji Wozniak, and this week me and Kara are going to switch up and I'm going to be lead mic and we have special guest Dorvins who was on before. He's the movie producer. So what we're going to talk about this week is everything Lord of the Rings. Dorvins has a certain thing he wants to start out with so Dorvins take it away. Okay, so I think that the Rings of Power is utter and total garbage. It's the most generic thing on the face of the planet. It doesn't do anything in terms of inspiring you or providing anything of interest when it comes to the genre of fantasy. Which again, we all understand that Tolkien has had a very large mark on the fantasy genre. So the fact that this show based off of his material is so generic and so bland and so devoid of life is actually an achievement for Amazon Studios to achieve. Because they've sucked any kind of individuality out of this show. That's sort of what I think about the Rings of Power to start off with. Ben? Okay, so I actually thought the season one was just, it was okay. It was good. I mean, you needed to have this descriptive situation of the different races and how the Rings came about and the building of Sauron. And you needed this to continue like the first six movies. So you go back in time to figure out how this all came about, how he tricked humans, dwarves and elves to wear the rings and basically come under his manipulation. So I thought it was okay. I just think that it was a decent beginning. It was a season one. So basically you're looking at the introductions, the tellings of the tales. So yeah, it wasn't jumping off the screen like, Oh my God, this is amazing. But it was good enough to get to season two. Okay, look, Ben, this is not really the best kind of selling point you're trying to do here. You're saying that we would have to watch, what is it, eight hours of this show to get to the good stuff in season two? I mean, that's just not, I mean, most people are not going to commit that much time just for the hope or the possibility that the later seasons are going to be better. Like, no one's going to be doing that. And I mean, again, another show that released during the same period is set in a fantasy world with medieval culture and society as its backdrop, right? House of the Dragon had the same kind of issues. And you could probably say more issues leading into its release than the Rings of Power did because House of the Dragon was coming off of the heels of horrible finales for that entire series because season seven and season eight were not the best seasons of that entire show. And there is a large portion of the fan base was not happy how the show ended. House of the Dragon had an uphill battle. But I would say that House of the Dragon did a better job of introducing characters, giving you compelling drama, giving you incredible backdrops to layer on the scenes and just everything you would want in terms of good storytelling, visual storytelling, right? Because in the Rings of Power, besides all the other crap that they were doing, they were doing a lot of telling you rather than showing you what this show was supposed to be about. Because aesthetically, the show looked like a bunch of video game cut scenes and not that great cut scenes either. It just looked like it was just a hoshposh of a bunch of different elements and things put into one show to make it seem epic or to make it seem like it's that it has more gravitas than it does. Now, for me personally, I'm more of a Middle Earth fan than I am a Westeros fan personally. But when you compare House of the Dragon and the Rings of Power, honestly, there's just no comparing the two because House of the Dragon beats it wholeheartedly. Now, on another hand, what Rings of Power tried to do in order to hold on to the meagre viewers that it had towards the end of it is that the show constantly tried to mirror certain scenes and certain moments in the original trilogy and did it poorly. Now, there is a number of scenes that I can list here, right? But the things that are coming to mind initially is the things like with Isildur essentially having a voice in his head when we first meet him, sort of alluding to how, you know, the ring is whispering to him and trying to get him to do things that he doesn't want to do. And there's just a whole bunch of other things littered throughout the series that do that constantly where it's like, ooh, let me dangle this Easter egg or this moment that you're familiar with from the original trilogy without giving you anything of actual substance. It's like junk food, and it's not even that great junk food. It's bad junk food. That's essentially what the show is. No, it did. I think a lot of it was them thinking, all right, you should know who these people are already. Like by watching the other trilogies, you should know who Gladriel is. You should know who Sauron is. You should know who Gandalf. You should know these characters. I mean, Gandalf, of course, they haven't actually said it's Gandalf, but it's Gandalf. Right. But this is the thing. Even though this is a popular IP, a lot of the point of the show is to introduce this to either a newer generation of viewers to this particular show or this particular world, and also to appeal to anyone else who isn't familiar with the story itself. You're trying to get newer viewers because you know, I mean, they spent all this money to acquire the rights to this popular IP. So they know that those particular people are going to be almost guaranteed viewers to this, at least the first episode. Right. So the whole appeal is to attract new viewers because that's the same thing that Game of Thrones did when it came out. It didn't just rely on the core fan base of the books. It also had to attract outside viewers and spectators to the show. That's what made it a very popular show at the time. So the same principle applies to the Rings of Power. They can't sit there and assume that everyone knows what this particular show and what this particular series is about. There isn't a single IP out there that has that kind of totality appeal to everyone. You can say that there's probably a number of them, and I would say the Lord of the Rings is probably one of them, where it's like there's a mass appeal, as in there's a lot of people who know sort of what the story is about -ish. But going into the show, assuming that your viewers know what you're talking about, especially if you're trying to get newer viewers and newer subscribers to your subscription service, then you have to do the work of making sure that you cover those bases. Because I know it's shocking, but there are people out there who have no idea what the story of the Lord of the Rings is. And again, the show made it so obvious it hurts when it comes to the things like with the wizard that fell from the sky. Because again, we all know he's a wizard, okay? Whether he's Gandalf or not, or if he's some blue wizard, we all understand that he is most likely a wizard because he's coming off like a wizard. He has a beard, he has a like, I'm the old wise person, right? Even though he has amnesia or whatever. That stuff is totally obvious. And the other thing that's also obvious is how much we all knew that Howard Brand was Sauron. They made that so abundantly clear from the get -go, it hurt. It was like, you don't need to slap us that hard with that piece of information. At least make us work for it. Because everything with him coincidentally meeting Galadriel in the middle of the ocean, when they arrived in Numenor, him walking by a blacksmith area and you see the suspicious music playing in the background as he passes that. Because we all know that Sauron is very skilled in the art of crafts and craft making, obviously, because he did the ring. So when we see him pass by there, we're like, okay, now I can put two and two together. What you're trying to do with this guy? Either he is Sauron or he is a very close associate of Sauron. Someone we're very familiar with, right? So those kind of things were very, very obvious. Even if you don't know anything about the story of the Lord of the Rings in general, you know that this guy is most likely either not who he claims to be and is either going to be evil or is going to be turned into evil. But we know that he's going to go down a dark path. Like that was clear and obvious as anything could ever be. So that wasn't an issue. And oh man, and I blame you for this, Ben, because I had to watch the show again and I watched it on double speed and it did not help. But oh my God, the show felt like it went on forever. Everything just felt a sludgy mess that I had to crawl my way out of just to get out and away from a scene. It just took forever for anything to happen. And as an audience member, you should not be feeling that, especially with a story this familiar. You shouldn't have to feel like you're wasting your time in your life watching the show because things just did not happen. And I watched it again at double speed and it did not help. Well, I mean, of course it helped because I got through the episodes quicker, but it still felt longer than it should be. And that's just May I ask, it sounds like this series is chalked up to a lot of like poor writing and adapting from the original source material. Do you find if there was a different team behind it, it would have been better? Or do you think that these this story this prequel story that they're trying to tell is so lackluster that it doesn't matter? Honestly, it's going to sound like a bit of a cop out, but I think it's a little bit of both because the production itself had a lot of issues behind the scenes with a bunch of different creatives going in and out of the project. And usually when things like that happen, especially in big budget productions, it's generally going to harm the continuity of the story being told. There were so many people who either were let go or decided to move on because they can kind of sense and feel that the show that they're trying to tell isn't going to be faithful to the source material. And again, for me, I'm not like super hardcore about being super faithful to the source material. I'd like it to be as close as possible because generally you would tell a better story because we can see this mirrored again. I'm going to keep bringing up Game of Thrones as an example of this. Right. People notice that the better seasons of the show was when George RR Martin was involved in the show. Right. Because, again, he is also involved in the first season of House of the Dragon. Right. And it made a difference because you're sticking closer to the story of the creator of this world. Now, are we all realistically expecting them to do everything verbatim? The original trilogy didn't do that. It didn't do everything verbatim. But you get the initial story and the themes, the plot, the characters, all of those key things were intact for the most part. That's what's going to keep the attention of those who are fans of the books and will keep the attention of those who know nothing about this world that they're trying to create. With their production of this popular IP, they're going to put their own spin on it. Right. Now, people are going to be more open to the spin if it stays faithful to the core idea and principles of the story being told. Because if they don't, then why even buy the property and try and make a show out of it? If you're just going to change it into something else, it kind of defeats the purpose of what's happening here. In short, yes. I think it's both. Do you have any thoughts about that then? So I see what you're saying. I really do. I've heard numerous things about the production of this movie, this show. I heard that it was thrown together because a lot of people were saying that the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit series was basically predominantly a white, non -female lead. They were like, oh, everybody in there is white. Everybody in there, the leads are women. So we're going to do this thing where it's going to hit that demographic of viewers. And I see what you're saying. It was thrown around and then other people jumped in and out. And I think they might have had a vision at first of how they wanted to do it. And then they felt pressured with all these things thrown at them. Like, well, wait a minute. We have to hit this demographic of people, this demographic of people. And it kind of got away from the original story, whereas they're more focused on like, let's have, you know, Gladriel is the star and then let's have this elf as the star. And you don't really know who's the star because it just bounces back and forth about who's the lead in this series. Of course it's Gladriel, but it didn't seem like it because I was more interested in the elf story than I was in hers, if that makes any sense. You know, like him being a ranger and being stuck on the plane, having to watch over Mordor and wait for the coming of the evil and, you know, watching the people that were Sauron's minions. Basically, they were people that fought with Sauron. So he had to watch them, but he ended up falling in love with the girl and the people. And then the people end up basically doing exactly what they thought they were going to do and go to Sauron's side. So I just thought that that was more of a story I was more interested in than Gladriel's brother dying and her wanting vengeance. And they kind of made her out to be like this not nice person I couldn't get behind. I was like, oh, you know, she's kind of like whiny, complaining. And she was supposed to be like this general of like the elves and like this really great leader. And then all of a sudden they get her like by herself and she's just like kind of wishy washy. OK. OK. Finally, there's something we can agree on, because I think that the portrayal of Gladriel was just it felt nothing like the original character. She wasn't ethereal. She didn't command the room when she walked into it. She was very bland and boring and very whiny, very entitled to think. The thing that I keep going back to and keep thinking about is how in the very same time period, House of the Dragon came out. They had similar issues where they were, you know, changing the ethnicities or the backgrounds of certain characters, right? Generally, people stopped caring about any of that kind of stuff, because, again, when you make drastic changes like that, they have to be justified. You can't just do it because you want to please a certain section of the audience. So House of the Dragon faced the same issues as the Rings of Power in a lot of ways. They managed to deal with those issues in a captivating and interesting way for the viewer, because who was it? The Valyrian? I forget his name, but his character was changed, right? It only added to the story because it made it very clear that Rhaenys, Rhaenys, Rhaena, Rhaenys, whichever one of the Rs, the daughter of the king, it made it even more clear to the people of Westeros that she had been unfaithful to her husband, right? Because she's about to be the queen of the Seven Kingdoms when her father dies, right? So it was an interesting addition. It made the plot and the themes that they were going for in the series a little bit more compelling and a little bit more clear for the characters within the show and for, of course, us watching the show. So it added to the story is what I'm trying to get, is the point I'm trying to get at here, right? Those changes to the story add something to the story. They don't just exist for existency. When you make certain changes like that in a story that are superficial changes, people are going to notice and people are going to be reacting to that because you're changing the story, A, and the changes that you're making to the story aren't really enhancing the story you're trying to tell. So naturally, people are going to be angry about that, because if you're not going to tell the story that you purchased all this money to tell, then when you make changes that do not work, just be ready for criticism. So, yeah, I mean, that's essentially what I have to say about that. And the thing is, is that all of these points that we're talking about, we only start seeing these things and start noticing these things and start nitpicking at these things when the story that is being told is not engaging. If your story isn't engaging, then you're doing something fundamentally wrong, especially if you have this ginormous budget at your disposal. If you're going to ask questions like, what's wrong with you? And where's the leadership in this thing? No, as a reader of the books, I see where you're coming from. I do. I see how they're supposed to be portrayed and how they were portrayed in the show. So as far as my take on the Fellowship of the Rings, so for me, I didn't like it. I know everybody's shocked at this. I didn't like it. I just I didn't like it. And I think there's a part of me that didn't like it because I was ruined on the Fellowship of the Rings years and years before when I went and watched this awful, awful Lord of the Rings movie where they had like it was animation and animation, like the screen in the background where they have the people walking behind it. So it just ruined me for this. And then there was a part in the Fellowship of the Rings where Frodo dances and it looked just like that part from the from the fellow the Lord of the Rings movie I saw. And then after that, I just couldn't get into it. I was like, I just can't. I just can't get into this movie because it seemed like they followed suit to that. And if you watch the Lord of the Rings cartoon that I'm talking about, Frodo looks exactly like the character he is now. So it was like they took the the cartoon person and they pictured someone to do it, Elijah Wood, and they just were like here. And they made him look exactly like they did on the cartoon. And it just it just ruined it. OK, I'm going to I'm going to do some pushback on this because I don't really see what you're talking about when it comes to Frodo looking like the animation animation cartoon. Although I will agree that Peter Jackson himself said this, that he was inspired by that film, can actually see certain scenes that he sort of expanded on in the trilogy itself. But to say that Elijah Wood looks like that cartoon, I just don't see the comparison there. Listen, he looks exactly like him down to the hair. If you Google him, if you Google him, you'll be like, oh, I see what you're talking about. He looks just like Elijah Wood. You know, I'm going to have you talk. Yes. So for me, the comparison doesn't hit all that well. I mean, obviously it's the same character being portrayed, but I would definitely think that Elijah Wood's Frodo was definitely much better than the animated version. Because, again, I can obviously understand the similarities in terms of some of the scenes you might see. And because I was watching them back to back, not back to back, but at the same time, you can kind of see the similarities in the scene structures. But yeah, I just I don't see when you say that Frodo is essentially like, I don't know, like a carbon copy of the animation version. I just don't I don't see that. I'm talking about the look, the hair, the dress. I thought it was like he just looked and said, all right, I'm going to get this guy to look just like this character from the from the cartoon and I'm going to put him in the lead. Fine. Let's just say that you're right about that. That the look is what is putting you off to the character, which I don't get because I would still look at the performance of the actor and the performance that he has in totality in the entire series and base my opinion off of that. But I'm just thinking, where's your criticism of that when it comes to the rings of power? I mean, every characterization down to how they're dressed, how they look was completely different from what we understand of the characters in the source material in the legendarium. They are literally night and day comparisons. So I don't get Elijah Wood's Frodo in the trilogy is comparable. Well, OK, I guess on the look fine, but I don't get how that is a major hindrance to to the Fellowship of the Ring. It's like, where's the criticism about how the elves are portrayed in the series? Galadriel, for instance, why is she not a ethereal? Why doesn't she feel like a being from another world? Why isn't she six foot? Why is it that the Numenoreans and their armor looks like it's some 3D printed crap attached to them? It's like, where's the criticism about that? Instead, you're going back and criticizing what I would almost say is a near perfect. It's probably going to be the best version of that trilogy that we get going back to the original trilogy and criticizing those minor, minute things. You know, these kind of criticisms I would have about the rings of power, mainly because their story isn't all that interesting. So I would go around nitpicking all this stuff because there is anything of interest in the story that's being told. So, of course, I would go back and nitpick on that. But with a near perfect adaptation of the series, the best around hands down, I find it hard to go back and criticize a manimation cartoon that came out in the late 80s or whatever and try and compare that to the to Elijah Wood's performance.
A highlight from Starfield Article Bias, Crazy Back and forth in gaming - Bonus Episode #7
"What's this a podcast on? What are we looking at monday? Yes indeed. We're going to talk about a bunch of stuff. I want to talk about the back and forth for the starfield discussion as well as a lot of other discussion that's going about around these games and around 2023 in particular and sort of the fundamental problems we're seeing with some of the coverage, some of the back and forth and why we're starting to see, I would say confusing messages on a lot of games and I want to dive into that and discuss it. So a little bit of behind the scenes baseball for the industry as well as just some excitement about games coming in 2023. Thanks for being a subscriber. We're over one million on youtube and podcast is always doing well. If you don't get a chance to watch it live, it'll always be on Spotify and itunes. First, let's talk about confusing coverage coverage that is definitely in 2023 is becoming sort of a heel turn. I would say to take a wrestling turn from a lot of video game fans. They're starting to see what they consider to be especially websites vice doing versa kind of articles where one day they'll say one thing and one day they'll say almost exactly the opposite and why that's happening more and more so. And it is, I've done a lot of SEO searches and this is something that's definitely grown in the last two or three years and we've seen an increase in maybe the last four. But in particular this year it's actually grown to the point to where it's about 500 % higher rate than it has been in prior years. Why is that? The first thing was a change or a continual adjustment that we see on a lot of mobile phones. A lot of mobile phones are starting to put news sites on their home page and with android I believe anything that runs and can interact directly with google. If you have your phone open to the home screen and I think it's if you swipe left, you immediately go to a news page and this page is curated news for you. Now ignoring that there's curated news sites for a lot of people and many of us with too many news sites, too many websites, too many review sites. We use curated sites anyway. You might use something like feed Lee, which allows for you to take a bunch of websites and say I only want their data, but a bunch of websites could be five for one person and 250 for somebody else. Nevertheless, regardless of how you get there, that has made a huge change to the SEO or the search engine optimization for a lot of websites. And I ended up talking to two people from two different very big PC and console gaming websites and they both stated that their companies are pushing for them to get onto that curated instant home feed even higher than they used to with google, especially with the worry about AI and how google might handle the search screens. These kind of pages won't necessarily be impacted right away by the AI search results that we might see in google and being and so forth as we move forward. So what are they doing? Well, they're doing a tip for tack kind of thing where they're doing a positive video or a positive article on a game and then a negative one and I've been asked a lot of times why exactly is that? What's the law of diminishing returns? Let me give an example. Let's say I do a video about starfield and I get 100 % of all fans watching it and it's a positive video talking about space guns and exploration. Then let's say I do another positive video and it's about companions and quests. Here's one of the problems, both of those being positive videos and or website articles. What ends up happening is you get a diminishing return of the same fandom and that fandom will start to look and say, hey, I don't want too much. This is getting into spoilers. I only want a particular thing. And so that 100 % will drop to 95 % or drop to 90 % and then 80 and then 70 and then 75. Additionally, if the title and the overall article skews too positive, then what will happen is the people who are negative against it, whether you or I agree with that kind of stuff primarily and certainly before a game has come out being a little bit questionable in our eyes, it doesn't matter. There's a lot of people like that and they won't read or watch that first one and that will continue on and on. So the idea that you can hit both sides and we see a lot of times where they will actually task writers to have one writer write a positive article and one write a negative article. Now you can also skew negative all the time because people can be mad about everything. In fact, you can be more enraged about anything because the enraged part doesn't really have any scientific fact behind it. The difference between let's say a positive video about quests, you have to use examples of those quests and how they work. But let's say you want to do a negative article about quests. You can just list things that the quests for sure don't have and pretend they're negative and there's an unlimited number of those because there is only a limited number of quests and how they're put together. So if you find them positive, there's only a certain amount of time you can talk about those before you run out of actual scientific data behind it of actual examples behind it. But there is no requirement for actual examples of things missing. You can say, Hey man, there's no pizza quest. Here's my giant article about that. If there is a pizza quest, well as a website, you can probably only write one article about it. But 10 people can say, well, there's no abbey's pizza quest. There's no pizza pizza quest and you can just continue to build on that negativity. And we've seen some websites that have done that right now where they've got 10 2030 articles negative about starfield. And this is something we see or used to see even more on the Youtube side where you see a lot of videos negative about a game negative about a game. But I would say that with Youtube, the sheer amount of creators on Youtube has made it so that curation becomes difficult if you jump into that kind of let's say bombastic over the top kind of negativity. And we've seen a real reduction in views in that kind of stuff. The drama that exists is usually Youtube drama that exists in the Jake paul kind of arena and games when they come out, you can certainly see videos about that. But we're talking again about pre about prior to the game releasing and that's why we're getting it. This is why we're getting the tit for tat. There are actual writers being tasked. You write a positive article about this game, you write a negative one and I'm mentioning starfield right now. That means nothing. I could mention any game and this is the kind of stuff that can happen. And the larger the game, the larger the chance that the SEO or the search engine optimization that numbers indicate there is going to be an audience for that. So as Spiderman comes up, this will be definitely something that you'll see with Spiderman as well. And that's why you're seeing this back and forth. And that's why it can be confusing, especially with video games. I do want to point something out, not just video games. We'll talk about Youtube itself with Youtube. There is a net history unless you delete your videos as well. So when I say something and record something in a Youtube video, there is a nested history that continues from that point on with me on camera or the game on camera and me talking. That is way different than an article where somebody has to parse the entire article and there is no video, there's nothing. It's very easy to lose yourself and 1000 articles trying to find one where somebody said something negative where it's actually quite easy to just go back to, let's say a C G and find whatever video or historic evidence you're looking for. It's one of the reasons why not always, but one of the reasons why, especially on Youtube, you see a little bit more of a historic pattern that goes on because there can be some searching or at least an easier to identify historic pattern that goes on with a video creator. And this isn't a he said, she said or against four kind of situation. This is quite simply looking up SEO and in the last couple days just searching for this and tracking it down. It's quite easy to see there is factual data that this is occurring. This is something that also when I talk to people who are journalists that I trust who have told me a couple of these stories, I'm just like, I get it. You know, the only real way, especially with a lot of these news websites being hit by other kinds of news around the world. If they're a website that handles all kinds of news, hitting video game news is quite difficult. You, you know, you want to talk about the positivity of sea of stars or something like that? Well, that's not going to have a huge SEO. But if you want to talk about the negatives for star field or the leaks, those kind of things will be big enough numbers that it's easy to sell to your editor. It's easy to sell to the group that's running your website. Now let's jump into the tech a little bit. I want to talk a little bit about FSR and DLSS, FSR three. In fact, that's coming out here soon and why it's a little bit disappointing to be honest. So one of the problems when you look at any of these upscaling techniques, which by the way, some of them work incredibly well and it also depends on the game and it depends on the initial resolution that you're going to use. And for anybody who whoops, I hit my mic for anybody who doesn't understand what these upscaling systems are. They take multiple samples from a number of frames prior and then they build a higher resolution frame for you to actually see displayed. And so this is actually faster than having the game render that higher resolution display. And what's interesting is because they're trained using AI and because they're so smart, a lot of times, not all the time, but a lot of times you'll actually see a output that has more detail than the native wood because it's building together patterns and stuff. So for example, a rocky face, people might say, how does it have more detail? Well, one of the reasons why is because that four K output is done and it's sampled from, let's say, the native actual frame. What goes on with FSR and with DLSS is they're taking multiple samples and they're building out data including, let's say the grooves, the cracks that you may see in the rock. And they're actually finding more data with more samples and they're using pattern recognition. And when they put up that four K picture, depending on what they're creating, but with all of their sample data from AI, looking at thousands of rocks, millions, probably of rocks, I should say millions. What you can get is actually a more detailed texture and we're starting to see that and it's great, but we're also starting to see a lot of games where people are worried that FSR and DLSS are crutches that companies are not optimizing. I would say that that is possible and it certainly happened with a couple of games. It's also possible as somebody who's read the steam survey forum during the podcast recently is that a lot of people want their ancient ass cards to run games where the cards are actually pre PS four or PS four pro at least. And we are getting this division that's occurring now. This is something that if you want an actual example of this where we can see this example play out perfectly, it's WMR, the VR system that Microsoft created. One of the problems developers talk about all the time with this is that there were no set structures with WMR. So you could have 50 headsets, all 50 headsets with a slightly different FOV, all 50 headsets with a slightly different resolution, all 50 headsets with different pixel per inch. square And you would end up having it quite difficult to deliver what you would consider to be an optimized headset optimized kind of delivery. And we're starting to see that here. This is something that I'm not too worried about. I see consoles do this where they're aiming for their own internal up resin. We see that work well, sometimes not so well in the case of immortals of avium, but we see it work quite well in other places and we'll see this continually be fixed and continually be checked. We'll see FSR used for upscaling and now FSR has their own frame generation as does DLSS, of course, with the new DLSS. One of the problems with FSR's frame generation is this though. So with DLSS, they want you to have a somewhat high frame rate before you turn it on. And one of the reasons why that is is because regardless of how many fake frames you create, let's say you want to go from 60 to 120, your pulling rate for your controller or your movement is usually at still the exact frame rate that you were getting delivered to you prior to using the frame generation. One of the problems I noticed with FSR and I read this and I did talk to one developer about it to ask them if my worries were correct and they said generally they are it's we'll just have to see how this plays out. But one of the issues with FSR three is they stated that you pretty much need to be at 60 prior to turning it on. Now they want you to be very high in DLSS as well, but I think there were people who were testing as low as like in 38 and forties and stuff like that and still getting very good results. But they do induce latency already. Both of them do. And then you also have this polling rate issue. Why is this a particular issue for FSR three? Well, FSR three is a software format. It is not done via the hardware like DLSS, which uses the Nvidia cards hardware. FSR is agnostic. It can be used on any single device, which is one of its biggest bonuses for upscaling. When you change a lower resolution texture or a lower resolution screen to a higher one when it comes to frame generation, though this is using compute, meaning it's actually going to be using your systems power when there are gaps. And so the idea is, is what they're hoping for is that you already have the power to get up to 50 or 60. So there should be a little bit more power to possibly get more frame generation. And that's a little bit different than the way DLSS does it. Now there's all these idiosyncrasies with both of them. But if you look at it, the hardware and the cores that actually work on the Nvidia hardware are built and made for this. And when it when you look at FSR, it's not really like that. It's just hey, these work on anything and you can throw it up and it should do something. We're gonna have to see how this plays out. But I would say when you look at games like Starfield that's locked at 30 and people are thinking, oh, Starfield is going to save the day by have or is going to have its day saved by having FSR turn on. And we've heard from Todd Howard who said it sometimes runs at 60. That's not the same thing as all the time. And one of the problems that you can get is let's say you lock your frame generation at 60 frames per second, but it drops as low as 30 and then goes up to 60. But you're always using frame generation between 30 and 60 to lock it at 60 on your console. The problem is is that you will actually be playing with latency polling data as low as 30 and then up to 60. And what that can actually do is induce a very weird feeling of not necessarily judder, but almost like legginess that occurs over a longer period of time than you may expect. It's not instant, it's something that occurs as you continue to play a game where you're running and you make a slight adjustment and one side one time that adjustment because maybe it's running at a great frame rate at that particular time, that adjustment seems to happen almost simultaneously with your movement of the game pad. But then the next time there's just a bit of leg and that can actually cause, I wouldn't say motion sickness, but it can cause a little bit of almost like a brain blurriness where you're playing it, you're like something's up. It just doesn't feel exactly as snappy as we want it to be now. I don't know if they'll do that. We may see an announcement that FSR three, you know, pops out the day that star field pops out. But this is just something that happens with star field or not star field that happens with FSR happens with the LSS happens with what is the intel one Xe SS. These are expected when it comes to software solutions versus Nvidia's hardware solution. I'm a big fan of not using hardware solutions, at least on the PC side because you're locking out a certain group. However, I will say, I think when you look at this, you can see that technically the hardware side is obviously the positive side at this point and is the better of the two or three options. So I want to also say again, thanks to everybody who's a subscriber. We're looking at a really tough time for coverage with all these previews and all these reviews. I've had a ton of coverage that I've had to pass up. It has been a gnarly 2023, especially in these last couple of weeks. One of the things I talk about all the time is, ah, you know, I love games and it's no big deal. I love being busy. I do love being busy. I think it's great, but this is ridiculous. I mean, it's ridiculous. There's games that are previewing for 2024 right now and you know, article ability or not article, but YouTube for ability a video game that may be out in February of 2024, but they just happen to pop it here right now. So it can be quite difficult. There's a lot of titles and a lot of titles don't know what other titles are doing with their embargoes. So you get that and speaking of embargoes, you guys might have seen my tweet about embargoes. So one of the things that it doesn't infuriate me as much as it shocks me, somebody would be okay with this, but we saw a lot of people saying, you talked to insiders who can't talk because they're under NDA, but they say Starfield is this or they say Spiderman is this or they say blah blah blah is this. And a lot of times I'll pop off on twitter and be like, dude, I don't know who is breaking NDA, but you're an idiot because I got pinged 30 times in the last three days about Starfield. Do you have Starfield? Yo, I love your stuff, bro. Your stuff so great person's not subscribed. Person doesn't follow person hasn't done a like on any twitter. Obviously they're not. They just found out that I might have Starfield and they're pinging out and they want written, they want written explanations of your experiences with a game. That shit will come back to burn you. So any new youtubers who are watching right now are listening. If you're thinking for even a second, hey man, you know what? I might talk about this because I could be known as an insider. Maybe this person will come back and talk to me again later. Watch out man because you're writing something down. That person can take a screenshot. We've seen nothing but unlimited examples of this shit. So if somebody is asking you to speak on a game that's under NDA, don't just don't tell them to fuck off man. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous and it's putting you on a hot seat that could come up at any time later. Let's say you love a person who's running a website or a youtube channel. You love them. You're talking to them. They ask you for some inside NDA data. So you tell them and then what happens? Maybe they get an editor and that editor doesn't like you and that editor starts looking back at chats. Maybe that editor leaks a little bit of data about something you've said in a tweet that kind or in a in a discord, that kind of stuff can happen. That kind of stuff happens all the time. I used to remember one of the jobs I worked at, I worked out for 13 years and you would get people who were really close to the boss and they would be doing shit that maybe for a year or two they'd get away with and then a new boss would replace that boss and everybody at the company would just be like that guy's gone. Like there's no, that person is going to find out, they're going to find out that there's, you know, little idiosyncrasies with the way they do their job or there's things that they haven't been doing that they should be, they're either going to be working really hard or they're going to fail and we saw it every single time and that kind of stuff can happen. We're speaking out of turn on NDA's and stuff. So I just want to point that out. If you're listening, just don't man, just don't, you know, I have people that will be like, do you have a game or blah blah blah and I'll be like, you know, yeah, depending on who the person is and then, you know, sometimes they'll ping and they'll ask more data and I'll just a lot of times I'll just be like, yeah, not going to answer until the game comes out because you never quite know, you know, there's a couple people, very few that I trust and that trust only lasts as long as that person is the same kind of person, the only real person you can trust is you. And I would say trust yourself to be OK with not telling everybody that you're in on the secret. Speaking of secrets. So for the last like couple years, pizza prices have been raising and I've been going to cheap pizzas and I realized a couple of days ago, I was like, oh, you know what? Abby's, they're a local brand, somewhat local, but they're there in a couple of places around, you know, other states. But I notice I'm mostly in Oregon and I was getting all these, you know, advertisements for Abby's and I had skipped out on them because they were expensive, but I hadn't realized that all the other pizzas had got as expensive as they did. So a couple days ago, I was like, yeah, I'm going to order an Abby's pizza. We got this pizza and I'm telling you, oh, my God, it's a secret. It's a secret that I want out. That pizza is so goddamn good. It was ridiculously good. And it's so funny because I was getting pizza from, you know, a lot of these places that are like, look at us. If you want your oysters on pizza, you can have it. You're like, listen, stupid. I want pepperoni or salami. I don't need your fucking seafood on a pizza. It doesn't exist on a pizza. Seafood on a pizza is accidentally spilling your surf and turf on to the pizza. That's it. It's the only reason you would ever see shrimp on a fucking pizza. I don't care what anybody says. So the idea that I want that kind of stuff, whatever. I was usually just getting your pepperonis, your Canadian bacons, that kind of stuff. And so I got it a couple days ago. I got the most generic pizza from them. It was a I got a pepperoni and I got a Canadian bacon and pineapple. And I got to tell you, man, I took a bite of that and I was like, oh my God, this is good. Leveled up my pizza game. Well, returned, really. Technically, you could say I was just in the down years because I used to love them and started going with other companies, just some cheap no names and stuff, because, you know, at that point when everything was so cheap and some places were so expensive, you're like, ah, it's fine. I don't need them. And then once everything sort of raised up to that price, it was like, yeah, I'll jump in. Why did I bring up pizza? Because I got more today and I cannot wait to bite into it. I got a bunch of games to review and sometimes you need a little snacky snack and pizza is the way to do it. Also, I did end up finding out that I can get some some cheaper prices on shirts. I have a coupon for if you go to what is that Teespring, I think is the company I use their spreadsheet. You can see it on the YouTube channel. There should be a code that you can use. ACG dash gaming and get shirts for about 10 or 15 % off. I did want to point out as one of the YouTubers, one of the few YouTubers with an all over shirt, meaning the printing is everywhere. It's not just a front square or something stupid like that. We do do more of the gamer style, the esports style shirts, and I know that's not for everybody, but I love them. I think some of those designs are wicked. There there's no profit, by the way, zero. And that's fine. I want the name of the channel out there. So I have no issue and I want somebody to have a cool shirt. But I'm surprised how expensive they are. Like, I mean, they're expensive. I saw somebody who was trying to find a cheaper shirt being made somewhere and shirt prices have gone up for getting created. But again, you should be able to see that. If you don't see the code and you need it, you can ping me on Twitter and I can give you the code for that for for cheaper shirts. Reason why I bring it up is in just one video, I saw 2200 people click on a shirt and I was like, oh, but 22 people, 2200 people didn't buy it. I'm like, yeah, it's probably because we're choosing that all over print, which is so expensive. But you know what? I love it. I love it. I've got a bunch of them myself. I just I absolutely love the all over kind of print style. I've never been a fan of T shirts with just the logo on the front. You know, Star Wars. I've been a fan of the art going all over the shirt since I was really young and we had a shirt place when I was a kid that did our baseball shirts and they faked it. They found a way because this is prior to the technology really being easy to do, not like just a tie dye where they're using dyes. But these guys, they were really smart with how they did designs and they were able to basically do the design all the way around the shirt. And I remember like everybody, I'm pretty sure we won a couple games just because our friggin jerseys looked so wicked. People were like, What the fuck? Now, of course, no big deal. I think it's time to wrap this one up. Yeah, it's only 23 minutes. But guys, I am swamped with games. I got to end up getting some of these videos out. I skipped out on two or three previews this week. Just because there were so many to do. It's a good problem to have, but I do have a bunch of work to do this week. So I'm going to skip out on this, get back to work, start taking care of dem dogs. If you are not a part of the patron, come on by. It supremely helps the channel. We are just absolutely demonetized for the craziest shit. Atlas Fallen got demonetized and I still to this. They never explain why. So when you come into the patron, five bucks gets you the discord and I think it's awesome. I mean, it's definitely become my social hub for everything. Games, movies, pizza talk. Right now there's been, you know, over 1000 posts already. People just yakking up games old and new. It's a great place. You can stream some stuff, hang out, do some D &D, some tabletop sim, discuss anything you want to discuss in a cool environment. Other than that, I want to say peace out to everybody. Once again, thanks for subscribing and you'll see some reviews and previews for me later this week. Peace out.
Dennis Talks to Marissa Streit, CEO of PragerU
"Have the CEO of PragerU on the line, Marissa Streit. Marissa is one of the five top arguments I have for God's existence. Is that fair? And my fellow religious believer agrees with me. Marissa Streit, hello. Hi, Dennis. It's good to be here. You ever been introduced as an argument for God's existence? I do humble me. I'm glad the video can't pipe in through because I'm very red right now. Is it true you have news? I have amazing news, Dennis. Are you ready? I am. So our education initiative, which is making videos, magazines, and turnkey lesson plans for schools, we announced a few weeks ago that we were approved in Florida. And today, it's my pleasure to announce that we are making it into Texas as well. And so we now have another state by our side. The great state of Texas is now going to introduce PragerU kids in school. I have the chills. I really do. So you know what's going to be interesting to me? Well, the New York Times, Washington Post, Miami Herald, Chicago Papers, LA Times, NPR, CBS, CNN, will they all go on round two of the same attacks on PragerU? And that's probably all they can do is these ad hominem attacks and lies on us because, you know, truth is not on their side. I don't know if you caught the New York Times op -ed from last week, but one of the claims they make in there is how upset they are that PragerU is undoing all the supposed great work of Howard Zinn in teaching American history. Right. Howard Zinn, for those who don't know, Howard Zinn wrote a popular history of the United States. And all of my life, I have characterized it as a proctologist's view of America. America is seen through the anal cavity. It's a despicable work. He hated the country. I had him on my show. To his credit, he came on. People can actually hear of this interview. Marisa, I'm just letting all of my listeners know this. And I asked him, did America ever enter a justified war? And he wouldn't answer. He just, you know, something to the effect it's difficult to say. He said, what about World War II? He said, I'm not even certain about that. How's that? That's the Left's hero. He couldn't even say that the war against the Nazis was a moral war. Yeah, I mean, the sad thing is that people believe this stuff. And so the attacks against us have just been vicious. And they're, I mean, I want to use the word unfair, but that would be an understatement. It is unbelievable what we went through since we announced Florida. And I do anticipate that it's not going to get any easier with Texas. But, you know, we're here to help save America's mind. And we're here to keep going no matter what attacks we experience. And, you know, Dennis, I'll just share with you a little from my heart. I truly believe that this is a spiritual battle. It's been an emotional and spiritual battle over the last two weeks. I've seen attacks come from all directions. And I know that many of your listeners have been very supportive of us. They've been writing in, you know, telling us to keep strong. And it's thanks to, you know, it's thanks to the support that we've received that we're just going to keep

A highlight from What Is The #1 Real Estate Agent Success Hack That Nearly Everyone Ignores?
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money, and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Three, two, one, and we're back. You know, Julie, we live in a time where socially you're not supposed to admit the fact that you judge people on first impressions. No, you're not supposed to. Yeah, you're not supposed to, but everyone does it. You know, the thing is, is that we all do it. It's not a socialized thing. It's a lizard brain. We're born with that thing because we need to make quick snapshots of, you know, is that person friendly? Are they going to hurt me? Are they going to help me? Sure, friend or foe, right? And even back in the olden times, you know, it'd be, does that person maybe have a disease? Is that someone I need to avoid for other reasons, right? Is that person part of my literal tribe back when, you know, we had tribes, things like that. So yeah, this is a podcast that's going to teach you guys and take you through all the steps of how to nail your first impressions because if you want to have an unfair advantage in life, let alone real estate, first of all, accept the fact that people are going to judge you based off first impressions. That's always going to be the way, even if they claim they are or not, they are. And once you accept that, let's make the most of those first impressions because then that gives you an unfair advantage. That's right. And you've all heard the famous and true saying, you never get a second chance at a first impression. And I actually looked some of this stuff up in preparation for today's show and it is true. Many studies have actually shown the average person forms a lasting impression about another person after between two seconds and two minutes. That's all you've got to do it. So think about the last person that you met. What was your first impression of them and why? What do you remember about that encounter? Was it positive? Was it negative or was it neutral? Do you recall what they do for a living, their full name, if they have kids, where they live? If not, perhaps they failed to make a great first impression. So there's two. What would they say about you? But exactly. So there's two ways of taking what Julie just said. One way is like, what are the impressions people getting of you and is that really the way you want them to perceive you? Number two, when you're getting that two -second snapshot of the person that you're considering interacting with, maybe doing business with, maybe befriending, you've got to ask yourself, are you maybe drawing conclusions about what they're all about? Because I've discovered in life, and I'm sure you guys are learning this as well, it's almost impossible nowadays because people really dress like a lot of times not very nice, even in business. Yeah, overly casual really. Right, I would agree. And so it's easy to draw conclusions about people really just based on the fact that they haven't put a lot of thought into how they look and they're not thinking about their first impressions, which goes back to the original point I made, that if you want to have an unfair advantage at this time in history, all you've got to do is really remember and be okay with the fact that you can make yourself look a little bit nicer, smell a little bit nicer. Are you saying make an effort? Yeah, exactly. Make an effort that's beyond the other people in your environment. So that's where we're hoping you guys allow your brains to go when we're going through these points because it makes oftentimes the tiniest little nuanced differences can make a lasting impression on the people you're meeting. That's right. And you reminded me of something in Harris Rules, our bestselling book that you guys can find on Amazon. Here's the thing, we had a lot of fun. There's a whole chapter devoted to upgrading everything. And we really drilled down talking about your haircut, your glasses, what you wear, what you drive. But we made it a fun thing because it is something to do to upgrade everything and it can make you stand out. We're talking about first impressions here and lasting impressions. And other studies have shown that most real estate clients use the first agent they meet. That could be at an open house, it could be a call that you get. So I'm sure that you'll agree that this is something to work on and really curate. This is actually something about real estate that you can control. Your job now is to take a look at what your first impressions are both online and IRL in real life. Howard Britton used to call these moments of truth or split second judgments that the public makes about you. Are you friendly, trustworthy, professional and knowledgeable or are you just somebody they casually meet and forget the next second? So make a list of all of your potential points of contact or first impressions with the public and we're gonna do online and offline then we'll give you some questions to ask about each. Okay I want to clarify this because actually that's not completely factual. People will work like so if you're a new in real estate and you want to make obviously get a lot of traction quick the number one thing you need to do is remember that this is a people helping business so get in front of as many people as you can.
A highlight from Biden's Katrina Moment
"Hey everybody's and the Charlie Kirk show what's going on in Maui we examine this from every possible angle. We're missing something We're not getting the full truth. We try to figure out what it is. It's terrible. What's happening and the slow Lackluster response it's been really telling Become a member members dot Charlie Kirk dot -com. That's members dot Charlie Kirk dot -com as always You can email us freedom at Charlie Kirk dot -com and subscribe to our podcast Text your friends to subscribe and get involved a turning point USA at TP USA dot -com that is TP USA comm starting high school or college chapter today at TP USA comm that is TP USA comm sort of high school or college chapter today at TP USA Comm buckle up everybody here we go Charlie. What you've done is incredible here Charlie Kirk is on the college campus I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk Charlie Kirk's run in the White House folks I Want to thank Charlie's an incredible guy his spirit his love of this country He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created turning point USA We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries destroyed lives And we are gonna fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here I Brought to you by the loan experts. I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd comm We say America first often on this program, what does that mean? That means that our concerns should be prioritized by our leaders full stop We reject the anthem of neoliberalism of caring about other countries problems while our own country burns Interestingly I have used that sentence quite often our own country is burning our country is burning our country is burning Well literally our country has been burning the last week the beautiful island of Maui One of the the jewels of America It's burning now how the fire started we're gonna speculate. I don't think it's that actually that helpful At this point it might have been arson it was probably human involvement 85 % of massive fires are Human caused was it somebody that was trying to start the fire or not We'll find out as time goes on But what's interesting is that the reaction to the fire has been awfully perplexing. We were told it was no big deal We're showing some of the b -roll right now on screen. This looks like this looks like Pearl Harbor, and I'm not making a joke That looks like Pearl Harbor people in the water it looks like something out of a dystopian apocalypse film and It got worse this weekend as all of a sudden the quote -unquote metaphorical and literal dust settled we realized that the entire southwestern part of the island of Maui Basically looks like Dresden This is catastrophic damage Unfathomable Death toll we don't even know I mean we they're speculating a couple dozen people dead, but no no no It's gonna be a lot more than that. They're saying a thousand people are missing It's beyond comprehension So first let's just be very clear We need to be in an active mode of helping any way we possibly can our fellow Americans These are our fellow Americans, and I'll be honest I've not seen much about FEMA or federal response, and I have a theory about this And it's not it's not a theory that's going to make anybody feel good. I have not seen this massive federal action There are already 96 people confirmed dead Now Maui is home to a lot of different people the oligarchs of our society Jeff Bezos Oprah Winfrey Jimmy Buffett Marc Benioff from Salesforce Howard Schultz from Starbucks Now let me be very clear. There's a lot of People are saying Oh Oprah started the fire Oprah did not start the fire, okay? Just people didn't email me. I think Oprah started the fire. I don't think she started the fire. I'm not a fan of Oprah however if Oprah's property would have been burning I guarantee you the federal response would have been way swifter That I can guarantee you but putting that aside the The tragedy is real, but let's go back to one of our favorite questions that we ask on this program It's an old Latin phrase and it offers clarity We bono who benefits and That's a really sick question isn't it because no one should benefit from Fires that destroy entire islands there should be no beneficiary of Scorched earth, but if you remember tiny dancer Rahm Emanuel Former chief of staff to Barack Hussein Obama who became mayor of Chicago He famously said you can never let any crisis go to waste the response to this fire feels as if it's been slow motion and it reminds me of Dancing in the streets Hugging people saying it was racist to even call that you know the Chinese New Year remember Nancy Pelosi and we went from 0 to 100 on kovat not a big deal to this is the biggest deal Almost allowing it to spread on the homeland so far Remember when Donald Trump stopped travel to China.

"Very interesting story. I recommend people check out that story on the Bloomberg Terminal or on Bloomberg .com. When we come back, we're going to talk about a couple of really important cage matches. Cage matches? One possibly real between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. One just in my head between President Joe Biden and President Xi Jinping in China. It's going to be a very interesting story with our Bloomberg opinion writer. More markets up next. Broadcasting 24 hours a day at Bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act. This is Bloomberg Radio. This is Bloomberg Markets with Paul Sweeney and Matt Miller. We got a lot of green on the screen here, but the volume is light. We constantly underestimate the strength of the U .S. consumer. This is a market that's much more optimistic or bullish than maybe central bankers are. Breaking market news and insight from Bloomberg experts. There's still some concern out there in the market that there is room for things to deteriorate a little bit more than what they're indicating. As small and medium -sized businesses struggle, they don't present as much competition. The supply chain has still got dislocations globally and here in the U .S. This is Bloomberg Markets with Paul Sweeney and Matt Miller on Bloomberg Radio. Matt Miller here in the Interactive Brokers Studio with Simone Foxman. Paul Sweeney is off today on a well -deserved tea day. That's what we call it when you take off. On assignment, figuring out work -life balance. Exactly. Just swimming through his pool of municipal bonds. We have a lot coming up, though, on the program. I'm very excited to get Howard Chua -Yuan with us. He's an international editor with Bloomberg Opinion to talk about the comments that President Biden made about the Communist Party at Xi Jinping, about China. Some of them, I think, pretty inflammatory, it's safe to say. Almost Trumpian.
A highlight from ResortTV1 - The Magic of Disney!
"Welcome to Let's Be Frank, the men's mental health podcast. Join us as we break the stigma, embrace vulnerability and prioritise mental health in men. Together, let's use your voice. Guys, welcome back to Let's Be Frank, the home of men's mental health with myself, Jack Howard and Mr Ryan Smith. Again, today we have another incredible special guest who we will be introducing very shortly. But as always, Mr Ryan Smith, how are we doing mate on this fine, it's all wet weather evening for me here? Yeah, I think it's not too bad outside at the moment, but obviously it's like there's been a bit of rain all day, but we're good now. And I actually sound a little bit nervous on this one. I know we've said it in the last couple of ones, but this one, I've been following their YouTube channel for some time now. And to see him like here on the camera, it's like, wow, let's go. So, yeah. So guys, I want to introduce Josh from Resort TV One. I mean, his channel started in 2008, posting just like informal videos around Disney. A few years later, Resort TV One was born. I'm sure he'll share that story with us, how that came about. And then in the years that followed, his sister Jenna joined the channel and in 2017, YouTube went live, started doing live streaming. So naturally, Resort TV One sort of started to do weekly broadcasts from Disney with the channel attracting now over 170 ,000 followers with weekly sort of channels. Weekly sort of, I don't normally do this one. So yes, it's normally Jack. So weekly sort of episodes, we'll call them, attracting nearly 3000 followers. Jack, I don't do these. It's his life. So yeah, weekly sort of, where was I? I think I'm going to hand over to Josh here because I'm messing all this up. So Josh, how many people do you get on an episode? It's fully starstruck. I love it. I love this, Josh. Josh, I love this. It's starstruck and it's amazing for me to say this. Well, thank you so much, first of all, for having me on. And, you know, it's so funny because we've been doing this for a while, but even meeting people in the parks and having them be a little bit starstruck is still a little bit, you know, kind of surreal to me because, you know, to me, I'm still just Josh. And, you know, when I'm at home with my family, you know, I'm just Josh and that's just the way it is. I guess similar to how, you know, Josh Gab was saying that his kids weren't even that impressed that he was Olaf. So, you know, it's kind of that that kind of idea. But but no, honestly, it's been amazing. And we have been doing this since 2017, like you said, a weekly live broadcast in the parks. And now it's become like twice a week, three times a week. It's just kind of snowballed from there. And we're getting close to one hundred and eighty thousand followers and just super excited to see what the future holds. No, it's massive. And it's not just Resort TV. One is that you've got there's multiple channels now. So you've got Resort TV, One Homes, you've got your retro station, which, you know, I've seen a few of the videos and I do like this sort of nerdy side of things. You've obviously, Jenna's got her own sort of stuff in the background as well. And you have regular appearances of mom and dad as well, which I think I think as a family, as a unit, how you go out and, you know, you do your stuff with your family. And then Jenna does stuff with a partner and stuff and then mom and dad come into it. But then I just think it's marvelous. And yeah, it's just just brilliant. So how did it all start? So it really a lot of it was very much by accident, not intentional. I started out being just a, you know, another person who loved Disney and who missed Disney when I wasn't there. Just had that what we call post Disney depression when you'd go home and leave a trip. And anybody who's gone to Disney knows that feeling for sure. And so this is way back. I lived in Indiana still and I just started getting on the Internet to see, well, what's out there? You know, YouTube hadn't even really fully started yet. And I found all this audio and video from Disney Parks. I was like, oh, my goodness, this is the music from Epcot. This is the music from this. This is a video of the ride. And, you know, it was amazing to me to find all this stuff. Fast forward a little bit. I would go down to Disney said, well, I want to make some videos, too. So next time I went the next year, I started making some videos, posting them on these kind of informal message board type things. It wasn't YouTube. It was just a very informal site for posting videos and very low quality. But it was like really cool at the time. And then somebody finally on one of these websites, it was BitTorrent. If you're familiar with that and a lot of people can't access that because colleges had blocked it and all their service providers had blocked it. And they said, we love your videos, but like, could you post it on YouTube? I was like, yeah, I don't know much about YouTube. I have a Google account, you know, at the time, Gmail or whatever. But yeah, sure, I can post on YouTube a little bit. So I post on YouTube a little bit. And, you know, I didn't think much of it. Just posted a few videos here and there. But I kind of lost interest because there was a limit of 15 minutes per video. And a lot of the videos of different things that I had made were longer than that. And I didn't want to have to chop it all up into parts. And it just really was a lot of extra work. And so I lost interest for several years, but posted a few things in 2007, 2008. And then, I don't know, just 2015, I looked and I was like, wait a minute, YouTube's offering me partnership and monetization. And like we were I'm going to be a YouTube partner and I'm in the top whatever percent. Well, a couple of my videos I'd posted seven years earlier or six years earlier had just taken off without my knowledge to the point where they were going to start giving me ad revenue and just really like doing all these things to make it more legit. And I said, OK, this is weird. I don't know much about this, but sure, why not? If YouTube wants to give me a couple of dimes for a video, it's fine. And so fast forward a little more. I just started posting resort TV videos. That's when that kind of all started. I had recorded a lot of it as a kid. I love the resort TV that plays in the rooms. And I was always upset when one channel changed to a different host or a different format. And so I started recording them with just a VCR and eventually a computer and whatever I could record it with. I started posting those and the only reason to post those on the channel was so I could play it on my own Apple TV in the house to pretend like I was a Disney. So I've done that myself. I'm at work at right. The wife's walking through the house and all I've got is just the overlay with the temperature and everything else and the different things scrolling across. And yeah, I think it was your channel that actually found that on. So I think that's how I come across you guys. So, yeah, it's thanks for that. It's many hours of the wife being a bit dismayed by it. Oh, absolutely. Well, so from there, it kind of fast forwarded on to all of a sudden those videos got really popular, the resort TV. And so I thought, OK, this is getting legit. We got close to a thousand. Well, we got over a thousand subscribers. And at that point, you could pick a real channel name. Now you can pick it much earlier. But at that time, I think you had to have a thousand subscribers to have your own URL and everything. And so I thought, well, let me just call it resort TV, because that's what we're doing right now. A lot of and I was also doing like videos around the hotels, just little tours. So let's just call it resort TV. I didn't want to call it Disney or anything and run in any copyrights or anything like that. So I tried that. Well, YouTube said, no, you can't do resort TV. That's weird. There isn't one. But they weren't going to allow me to do that. So I said, well, you know what? Resort TV one has a nice ring to it. Like it's just like a TV channel. You know, so I we named it that that was before Jenna even came on board. And then I just started doing videos around the parks, construction updates when Disney Springs was being constructed out of, you know, the downtown Disney, what it was before. I've got a big series on that. And then finally, live streaming was where it really took off. And in 2017, live streaming became available. And I said, you know, I bet people would like to see the parks live. And the very first time I went live at Magic Kingdom, I'd gone live a few other times. The first time I went live at Magic Kingdom, we got over a thousand concurrent viewers at the same time. And it was just mind blowing. People thought we were the official Disney broadcast. And I was like, no, I don't work for Disney, but this is cool. So that's when we decided that this could really have a future and could really go somewhere. It was pretty amazing. I mean, I'm loving the sort of the multiple streams that you get now and you shoot about between the parks and stuff. It just seems out of every other channel, you're so far ahead of other people. You seem to just be on it. And if there's something new, you're there. And I just think that's remarkable. You can tell I'm a big fan.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 07/25/23
"It's the Travis King theme. Who's Travis King? North Korea prisoner army guy. Oh, the guy that wandered across the DMZ or went into the DMZ or whatever? Howard Jones, Howard Jones, the prisoner. What do we do with this guy? What do we, how do we, I mean, we want, we should get our guy back. I mean, is it as simple as that? Give us our guy back? I'm going to get in so much trouble to give you my honest reaction to this story. So why do you always want to set me up? Well, well, I'd say once you do that, I have news for you that will sideline the entire conversation, make people forget whatever shocking thing you're about to say. Well, I don't think it's shocking. I mean, my level of interest on that guy, troubled young man going into North Korea is right about on par with the Barbie movie. I just don't care. I mean, I'm sorry. I don't know what is up with him. I don't want to go into. I don't want to have World War Three with North Korea over this guy. I don't know what I don't even I mean, but I'm not kidding you. I don't care at all. I hate that. I shouldn't feel that way. I'm not really proud of my decidedly unChristian response. But hey, you know, mess around, find out. Yeah, that's the you go walking into North Korea. You're going to have a problem that he somehow thought that he rolled the dice and said, this is going to work out better for me than military justice at Fort Bliss in El Paso. Well, we'll just see. But I psychologically understand it because I care a little. I mean, but I know what you mean. The thing that suppresses the caring if he had been captured, if he were an innocent, if an evil country had come and gotten one of our pristine reputation to soldiers, we'd be all up in arms. How dare you? But but it's not like he becomes expendable by being horribly troubled. But he totally created this problem for himself. He sure did. Sure did. You're right. Fafo.

Scholar Thomas Howard Shares His Sister's Tragic Story
"People watching probably don't know that you have a famous, at least one famous sibling. Can you tell us about Elizabeth Elliott? Yes. Betty, as we called her in the family, is the second oldest of our six children. And it was interesting. She and I in this family of six offspring, she and I had a very intriguing, a very close relationship. We were, she was the second oldest and I was the second youngest, but there was something about the love of words and all sorts of things. I mean, she's most famous for people who don't know for her book Gates of Splendor, I guess is the title. Through Gates of Splendor. About the murder of her husband. Tell us about that. Well, she was married to a chap named Jim Elliott. They both went to Wheaton College together. As did you. Yes. And he was one of five young American men who in 1956, I think it was, they were in mission work in Ecuador, in the Ecuadorian jungle, the Amazonian jungle. And they were trying to make a contact, a friendly contact with a tribe there that are popularly called the Alcas. The Alca Indians. They call themselves Walrani, but most people know them as the Alcas. And these five fellows made a very carefully orchestrated and cautious and hesitant attempt to make a friendly contact with them. And they were afraid of all outsiders, even other Indians. This was in the eastern jungle of Ecuador. And to make a long story short, they, in their attempt to approach the Alca Indians, as they were called, they called themselves Walrani, they were all speared to death, these fellows. They were all killed. Yeah, all five of them. All five of them. I didn't remember that. And your brother -in -law was one of those five, Jim Elliott. That's, you know, you don't hear very much about missionaries being killed these days. It's sort of like a 19th century British joke. But as recently as 1956 this happened,
Scholar Thomas Howard Sums Up His Epic Book "Chance or the Dance"
"Really so excited to have the opportunity to talk to you in general, but specifically, at least initially, specifically about Chance or the Dance. So why don't I ask you the most basic question of all? Can you sum up the idea of Chance or the Dance? People say to me, what does that mean? And I tell them, but since you're here, I'd rather that you tell them. Well, I suppose the title touches on an almost limitless topic. Namely, is this scene that we're in, this universe, this world, this bit of history and so on, did it all come about by mere chance? The whole drama of us being human and living in history and so forth, did it all come about by chance? Or is it an exquisitely orchestrated drama such as you might see in a formal dance where the people who know how to dance, it looks free and liberating and exultant and so on, but anybody who has ever tried to dance knows that you can do a little bit of stumbling at first, but it ends up looking like a mode of freedom. And I think that would give us a little clue as to how a Christian understands being human.
A highlight from Thomas Howard (Encore Continued)
"Did you ever hear the expression, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade? Well, when Eric Metaxas was little, he had his own lemonade stand. And he sold so much lemonade, he became rich beyond his wildest dreams. Now he's able to do whatever he wants, and he's now the host of a big -time radio show. Welcome the guy who's oh so lemony sweet, Eric Metaxas! I am right now going to air an interview I did with my friend Tom Howard about one of the best books I have ever read in my life. It's called Chance of the Dance. He wrote it, and this is my Socrates in the City conversation with the great Tom Howard at his home. Do not miss it. Welcome to another Socrates in the City event here at the home of Thomas Howard, the great author and, I'm happy to say, my dear friend. He has written many books. In part one of this Socrates in the City interview with him, we talked principally about his book, Chance of the Dance, which I could rave and rave about and typically do. hour, In this I want to talk to him about lots of other things. My conversations with him over the years have been so fascinating that I really just wanted to share some of that with my Socrates in the City audience so that you could also get a taste of Tom and of his mind and be intrigued to want to read his books. So we're here without a studio audience. You're the audience, and so hold your applause. But I do have to say that it means so much to me that Tom and his dear wife Loveless have led us into their home with all these cameras and microphones and things, but it's a privilege for me, and I hope you'll enjoy it nearly as much as I do, so stay tuned. Tom, let me start with this in the second part of our conversation. You know that I love you, and I can say that to you because you have an understanding of that word. My understanding of that word comes from things I've read by you and C .S. Lewis. But you know that I love you, and it's such a joy to be with you that, as I think I said before, I could almost talk to you about anything because I enjoy talking to you. That's mutual, I have to say. I hope that doesn't embarrass you too much. But I revel in you and your emails and your letters and things. And actually, maybe a good place to start would be, we were talking before about your relationship with Lewis, and I asked you whether you'd kept any of the correspondence with him, and you said you thought it was in the Wade Center at Wheaton College, and you were at least slightly incorrect because in the other room, I just happened to find a framed letter from C .S. Lewis to Tom Howard. I think you're the Tom Howard in the letter. Dear Mr. Howard, Maudlin College, Cambridge. Oh, Cambridge, this was in 1958. He said both. And when I read this to you earlier, you almost memorized it. I just can't believe, first of all, his handwriting. What the heck? Amazing. It's beautiful. Right? Legible. It's legible. Dear Mr. Howard, oh, but believe me, you are still only paddling in the glorious sea of Tolkien. Go in for the hobbit at once. Go on from the hobbit. Go on from the hobbit at once to the Lord of the Rings. Semicolon. Three volumes and nearly as long as the Bible, but not a word too long. Three volumes and nearly as long as the Bible and not a word too long, parentheses, except for the first chapter. Which is a botch. Which is a botch. Don't be put off by it. This is hilarious. Is this in Walter Hooper's volumes of his letter in there? I don't know. I mean, the idea that, it's just delicious, that Lewis is calling the first chapter of Lord of the Rings a botch. A botch. But he loves the rest of it as much as anything. Then he says, the hobbit is merely a fragment of his myth, detached and adapted for children. And losing much by the adaptation. And losing much by the adaptation. The Lord of the Rings is the real stuff. Thanks for all the nice things you say about my own little efforts. Little efforts. Yours sincerely, C .S. Lewis. This is, how much can I pay you for this? Would you take, would you take a, no? What do you say? That's, I mean, you, look, I neglected to say this in the first hour. You taught at Gordon College for a long time. So you were a professor at the college level for a long time. And maybe I assume people know that, but many wouldn't. You taught English literature. Did you teach Tolkien? The English syllabus, I had to follow it. And I'm not sure that I ever actually did formally get the section, which I would have loved. But isn't it because when you were teaching college, maybe they wouldn't have thought of Tolkien as being worthy yet of being part of the canon. Yeah, I'm not sure. Right? I mean, that's my guess. Maybe they even think of Lewis as being worthy of being part of the canon. Even in a Christian college like Gordon. But I think I could have made it worthy of the canon. I mean, I think they would have, you know, eaten up if you really unpack what the Lord of the Rings is all about. Well, okay, then what is the Lord of the Rings all about? Is this where I get to admit that I've not read it? Yes, but you can still get into heaven, possibly. I've read Chance of the Dance many times. Just by being Eric, yeah. So what is the fascinating, I mean, there are many people that rave and rave about Tolkien. And there are many people that are unaware of Tolkien. I've heard people rave about him. I feel like I know lots about him. I know that he was instrumental in leading C .S. Lewis to faith in Jesus, which is an outrageous and amazing thing. But what is it about Tolkien for you? Well, I think he does an almost incredible job, piece of work, by opening out for us deprived, benighted moderns. Opening out the world of myth, of saga, of the ancient glory of narrative. I think that's what, you know, his work is, I would suspect, is unique in the modern epoch. Yeah. I am struck, very struck, by reading this letter, the way Lewis writes about the Lord of the Rings. I confess that I wasn't aware of his admiration for it at that level. Yeah, yeah. What do you think it is about Tolkien that Lewis so loved and admired? I think it's a tribute to Tolkien's own capacity of soul to see and love magnificence, which one is drawn into in the saga of the Lord of the Rings. Do you remember when you read the so -called space trilogy, when you read those books? You mean Lewis's... Lewis's The Anselm and the Paralandra and That Hideous Strength? It must have been while I was still in school. I'm not sure whether I had gone on to college by that time. I was a slow starter. Yeah. I often think that Paralandra is maybe Lewis's best book. I've never heard anyone share my opinion, but I think that well of it. Well, I couldn't disagree with you. I mean, it's a terribly hard choice, you know. What's Lewis's best word? Right. Well, there are passages toward the end of Paralandra which are just flights of beautiful language like I've never read. I mean, people crave about Gabriel Garcia Marquez or, you know, I've never read anything better than some of the passages there. But even the idea behind Paralandra, I mean, I think of it as I assume you taught Milton over the years. Yes, yes. So I think of Paralandra as his response to Paradise Lost and it ought to be taught in classes. In tandem with that, yeah.
"howard" Discussed on Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran
"What do dentists and construction workers have in common? When dentists get out of school, they want to be an owner operator and they go buy a practice. They try to buy something small and cheap and not use a lot of debt, they'll buy some three opportunity, $300,000 practice. But that's cool if you're a mom and dad paid for dental school and you don't have any student loans and all that kind of stuff. But what if you come out of school with three, four, $500,000 student loans? What does he come out of school with something more more time considering than Luna? And you have a wife and a kid. Well, hell, you need a big office. You need a $1 million practice. You might need two or 300,000 dollars a year. Cash flow right out of the gate. So these construction workers. I'm always hiring subs. And like if I order a bobcat, it's a $1000 a day. This book three months of dance flop has 20 grand. First gets here. My gosh, what if I need to buy a dozer? Well, those are 40,000. There are $2000 a day. They're booked down three months today. If you go buy it next later, there are 80,000. My God, there are $4000 a day, and they're booked out three months left. They all went into debt for a skin steer front loader and excavator or those or whatever. And they're all booked out the same. And it's the same thing in dentistry. Every dental office I walk into, they're all booked out the same. They're all booked out a couple of weeks for the most part. So do you need to buy a bobcat? Do you need to buy a dozer? Do you need to buy an excavator? You need to buy something big enough that generates enough monthly cash flow to pay all your monthly bills for the wife, the kids, the student loans, all that kind of stuff. And last but not least, man, when you're thinking about having a kid, it's like getting a dog. Having a kid getting a dog or buying a practice, there's never a good time for any of that stuff. You know, when you do it, you do it because it matters to the heart. You know you want to do it. So go do it. You're going to make it work. Dennis don't go bankrupt. So if you need a lot of cash by a bigger piece of equipment, which includes dental office. Have a great day.
"howard" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"Most deeply about themselves personally, I'm their own biases that they may or may not be aware about. But the tone of the conversation has just got to chill out. There are three candidates for MVP right now. Jokic Giannis and embiid, everyone has fallen off behind them, not falling, it's not like Dončić and Tatum and et cetera have fallen off off, but they're all incredible. All three are incredible. An all worthy. As they have been for the last several seasons in which we have continued to rotate them around for the last time. And I have said, even in past seasons voting for jokic, if it's really close and you just can't find a separator that you like, maybe you don't like divorce and schnorr, that's fine. Maybe you don't like that you'll get only taking 14 and a half shots a game. That's cool. If it's literally splitting the thinnest of the hairs that are thinner than the ones on the top of my 45 year old head, if it's that thin, I think it's actually okay to zoom all the way out. Depending on what your preferences are as a voter. And consider history, consider postseason, both projecting how this player will does in the postseason going forward and has in the past. If those are tiebreakers for you if those things matter to you as a voter, they matter to me, maybe less so than other voters who are sitting here thinking every night about Larry Bird and LeBron James never winning three in a row and Michael Jordan never winning three in a row. It's fine if those are tiebreakers. That's cool. You want to talk about all these big cultural issues? That's fine. All I'm asking is this. And I am asking it, I'm asking two things. The first thing I'm asking is, do not yell and scream, like someone voting for the guy that's not on your team is a moron who knows nothing about basketball in life because they happen to think Giannis is the MVP and not jokic and I am here specifically not talking about fans or media. I am specifically talking about people like Daryl morey who has frankly been juvenile on Twitter and Daryl and I go back a long way, he's making these silly arguments about how it all goes back to Russ over Hardin in 2017, which is a vote neither you or I made. And Daryl morey is a steward of the game. He's a general manager of the sixers. Stop making fun of people who might vote for some other than embiid as if they're morons with your silly tweets of children playing little square peg round hole games. Michael Malone, stop ranting about how anyone who doesn't vote for jokic for MVP is like, well, I guess they just don't want this guy to be MBP. What game are they watching? No, the other guys are awesome. You guys are stewards of the game. Stop doing this. You should be above this. And I understand you got a campaign for your guy. That's fine. You can campaign for your guy without being like, you're a moron, if you don't vote for this guy, Daryl morey's tweet was like something about voters trying to parse team success in individual numbers. Daryl morey, you run the freaking nerd conference, you know better than anyone. The sixers one, I think, three more games than I'll get last year. They're point differential is like .2 points per game different. You know, there was no demonstrable difference in team success between the fourth seated sixers and the 6 seeded nuggets last year. You know that. So stop trying to make this stupid straw man argument about team success in an individual number. Stop doing it. You're all better than this. And the other thing I will say Howard Beck and then I will let you talk is, I keep seeing and it's driving me crazy. All of this stuff about, well, how can you give yoga C MVP when he hasn't done anything in the postseason? When did when did Joel embiid's postseason track record become better than jokic's? They're essentially equivalent. They've both had one season where they were swept out of that sweat, but dispatched easily in the first round with undermanned teams. That's last season for jokic, the bubble season for embiid when Simmons was hurt. Simmons is still hurt. That's a different story. They've both had several second round losses and one of them has made the Conference Finals. That is not Joel embiid. That's Nikola Jokić. And jokic's postseason numbers are just flat out better than it beats. They don't include defense. I understand that. All I'm saying is this, if you're going to make these arguments, make them reasonably. Go back and just go to basketball reference if you're going to say like jokic has done nothing in the playoffs. Therefore, in voting for embiid, just take 30 seconds and look at who's done more in the playoffs. That's all. I have no idea who I'm voting for. There are 15 games left in the season. I will say there have been more games in the last two weeks, Chicago, Toronto, just this week, where jokic's passivity has been like, dude, can you take some shots? Like, can you take some shots? I think that whole like he's not taking enough shots is overblown, considering how many shots he creates for others and that Denver is the second best offense in the league. But you know, look, I just wish we could have this conversation reasonably. And I guess we've reached a point where it's just not possible. Everyone is either right or a moron who should be throwing out of basketball and media forever should be fired on the street, lose their families, their children take away their house, take away their car. Like literally backed away from the mic just now as he wound down his right hand. It's supposed to be fun. And just like have a good time with it. Right. And I want to say this too. And this is not to let perk off the hook because the latest round of insanity, which has gone on for over a week now, did start with some things he said that were framed within inaccurate premise and then proceeded to other inaccurate statistics along the way. And I don't want to go into all that and great respect for perk and he's coming to this from a very different perspective as a former player. And that lens is important. And I think the conversation. I love perks been on my podcast. He's my friend. I read his entire book. It's really good. I have it on my shelf. I will get to it soon, I hope. But I want to let I want to remove him from the discussion on one level, which is that this thing is off the rails, but it went off the rails long ago. And it's not just this last week, and it's not just that, okay, now we're also talking about race, which as you point out, listen, racial bias implicit racial bias is a thing. It exists in the world. Studies have been done about implicit racial bias in policing in housing in bank loans in real estate. And all kinds of things. It's real, and yes, we should all consider it, but not within the context of the way that I think perk presented it because the way he did it and I'm just going to say this, he not only denigrated MVPs one by three all time greats, he impugned the integrity of the voters who made those votes as if those guys weren't worthy. Now, if we want to re litigate old MVP races, we can and especially one of Nash's has been relitigated many times since it happened, and that's fine. But to say that these guys weren't worthy or that the to imply. And he only implied it and I know perk has said I didn't say this. It was implying that the only reason they won was because they were white and that the voters were largely white and like that's like we're going off into a very unfortunate place there and it doesn't mean that we can't also talk about implicit racial bias, which again is real. It just means that saying that that's the reason or implying that's the reason they won, I think is a step too far, it implies that they weren't worthy. They were worthy. All of them. And I didn't vote for jokic the second year to be clear. And I didn't vote for national novitskiy because I couldn't vote those years because I was working for The New York Times, which doesn't allow its reporters to vote on awards. I voted for yoga. I wasn't covering the NBA then to be clear. So I love what I can just say, like, you can't blame me for this one.
"howard" Discussed on Clark Howard Show
"I am not Clark Howard, this is Krista, Clark's producer, and for the second day, Clark has no voice and is not able to come in. He should be back tomorrow for sure. He's definitely on the mend, no need to worry about him. So once again, we have decided to pull together some of our greatest hits. And what better greatest hit is there than the story of how Clark Howard became who he is today. So we're replaying that and then something that I think could be very useful in your life, finding money that may be out there for you that you don't know about. Clark will tell you how to go on your own treasure hunt and hopefully put a little cash back in your pocket or the pocket of a relative. But without further ado, here is Clark telling you about his background. Why do I get embarrassed talking about my story? I've always been told to be quiet about yourself and your accomplishments to walk humbly. And at the same time, cresta has always said, it's important that you share your story regularly with people because it is unusual and there are things in it that people can learn from. And so I'm going to give you the short version of it, what Chris has been after me to write a book about for autobiography for, I don't know, 20 years she's been trying to get me to do it. And I just feel funny doing it. I feel funny talking about my life right now, too. But here we go. So I grew up in a very easy life. And what seemed like a privileged household. And life was really nice. I went off to college, I finished high school at 17, went off to college. And everything was like easy street. I didn't have to have student loans. Nothing like that. And then out of the blue, I'm home for Thanksgiving. And there's just this terrible atmosphere in the house.

So that is a that is a A tough issue. But yeah love craig. Cow i over ideas. Were the same mean. We were always going to the problem on us with video scrape. Callen you i mean i think it was all i think we were all ps at the same pot ramming did any. I don't think anybody had a unique idea in that group. Everybody was just swirling and sharing and backseat giants. Are you in touch with early. So is he still my gosh the last couple of times and now a son owns lab in dallas. And i've talked to him but aurelia is so funny. He bought a He bought a farm and then he bought some big john deere caterpillar but anyway he just plays on this big tractor. he's like been reshaping all the dirt mountains and trees and he's a funny guy. It's funny when people used to tell me that i was Uncensored or inappropriate or said something sow as always say. Oh my god. Did you ever hear of early. He's the walkout in the seminar. Sit down pull out. A twelve was twelve packers. Six pack six after lunch. I mean he's not not barbaria after lunch and during the lecture they'll the and during the lecture and he would finish that whole six pack and by an go by got jolly yee's turn into dams and dams turn into blanket. Oh my god. It was hilarious. And i used to watch like entire rose. Just get up and walk out because he said a word. And i'm like wow man that word really triggers you because this guy can teach you so much and you shut down over some word mike. Gosh that is just crazy. Heard him in. Saint louis he He started his lecture by saying look. I'm a little country boy. This way i talk and i say this and i say that and he settled he said of any offended by that you want here that kind of thing his reception cinemax you check right now so he avoided him walking out he told him from the beginning which is probably why did that because i thought it was funny way to start but what what a great guy to gone six in the morning and he told me. He told me he did that policy because what they would do they would stay the whole day and then want a refund like now. You wanna refund. It's right now. Here's what i'm going to say. Drop a few bombs and get up and get out of here and get your money and get out of here. But don't say here all day and then whatever but you know when i when i think back of everything you taught me. Do you remember that group quest. The huge and you brought me. I never really. I learned quest really from you and that is Back in the day. And i. I remember that because i went to australia and i was actually the quest down in australia. I remember quest was saying he was saying. Look you're hydros has room and you have a room and the lady upfront as a walk in as a singer me you don't have a chair and if we could just get you to go from two chairs to four chairs you're going to double your production. Just don't change a thing. Just double the size. Your plan and i remember the first time i lectured and australia roots in. George port brought me down they import laboratories and they'd always have me come down to sydney melbourne brisbane. Gold coast adelaide and auckland museums always five or six cities Every other day for like ten days. And i always try to get there. Get to know my issue. I'm talking to so. I get the day before and just walk down sydney and drop in every dental office. I could and just beat them and talk to them and everybody had one chair. And then i would talk to the receptionist and everybody was booked out six to eight weeks. This is about one thousand nine hundred ninety and nobody in australia could get in anywhere under a month unless they knew somebody and everybody only had one chair and so i really made this whole deal about working to chairs and there's got thousand people in the audience. Route could pack the room and this guy stands up and goes so i have two chairs and then he holds out his hands so i do to root canals at the same time and he start filing with you know two hands out like a and the whole room starts laughing and i swear to god. It took half the day to get them to realize that. Okay i'm going to go in there and numb this patient but as a set for ten minutes and i can go over here and do hygiene check that i over here and see the crown and then i'm gonna come over here and crap and the assistant back and and i mean they would stop every five minutes. I mean it was. It was just greek back then and now it's all combinations because that's a neat thing about humans is that it might take forever and a day before somebody gets an idea but the neat thing about knowledge is the hardest part is the original unique idea and once you get it. It's instantly transferable across the whole damn heard the whole herd. You took a century to figure something out and you tell the heard and they all get it. You know a minute later and so infrastructure was a big problem and i still see in the math They owe whenever you look at income. You always see that. The oral surgeons are number one and they sit there and have My gosh what is their income Oral surgeons ravaging four forty-eight period on three thirty ended austria seven but with the pediatric dentist. Three or four and then everything under that is to something including ortho and the reason those four spicer number one is because every one of those specialists will tell you the eighty twenty rule they get eighty percent of all their business from my ten referring doctors and then twenty percent of their remaining business for about twenty other doctors and when does ten doctors at send them all their wisdom teeth all their gum disease all their molars all their screaming kids calls up and says oh john i is there any way you can see his face to face mine. Is there any way. And you're a separate as well john. I can't see her today. But i could see her tomorrow and then ended on a study. No he's back there. Dinner muller rookie out in the next thing you find out you tried. The new ended on us across the street. And he lost a referral. He lost ten percent of his business on one phone call because he didn't have an option and the one thing that oral surgeons period honest ended honest pediatric dentists do is they always have not one but two emergency rooms. That are not scan. You go into his office. Here's my three hygienists. Here's my two rooms. Here's my overflow room and these two are emergency rooms and oral surgeons having set up like you send someone over. Well he might. He might say why. I don't even need to be put to sleep at night. I just want you to pull this too. And he's like great. I got this room. It's already set up for everything. He just drops a-block weights ten minutes flips. It out i my oral surgeon sometimes the pace and come back and say he didn't even charge me. I call us irons crucial. Why do you charge. He just hired. I was so damn busy. I didn't have time. Didn't have time to charge them. But i wasn't going to turn down my number one referring wrap you said get this out. I got it out. i did have. He said if i wrote the chart i just got him in there and popped it out. It's all good. It's all good but man. He had those two rooms. And then you go through the drive through bank. They got three lanes. And there's one hundred sixty hours in a week and there never used. Maybe one jews but friday. Everybody gets their paycheck. All three of those lanes are booked up to cars deep so their capacity matches the flow as opposed to the capacity matching the total demand which is what dentist do they only say. We have three chairs. And we're booked out two weeks in advance and once you start telling someone on the phone. I'm sorry i can't see you today and take your money. Stand in line and wait to give me money. Then you're plateaued. And what i think's weirdest thing about poll toes is some people porto like forty thousand a month some pluto at fifty thousand a month. Girl's six it's like some some pluto forty simple eighty and neither one of understand the placebo. They just ended up at two different toes. And the other thing they always do.

"I mean the hormones raging the level of aggression is unbelievable. If you think it's rough in middle school in america with all the teasing in the roughhousing you should try a british boarding school where you do not get to escape at the end of the day. Yuck yuck so having had this traumatic experience starting as a ten year old. How did you end up being so altruistic as who you are and what you've done with your life so let me tell you why i'm so conscious of money and being careful with it and it's not just an attribute that i have. It's an attribute the my brothers have as well if you go back to my crate great-grandfather when he died in the eighteen eighty s. He was reputed to be the richest man in england how he had a fortune built largely on a tobacco company. A brand cold tope cigarettes that now as part of a much bigger company called japan tobacco he had a single daughter who inherited the family fortune and she bequeathed that fortune to five children and those five children it. They blew this huge fortune in short order so that mother and her siblings inherited almost nothing and so we grew up as kids with the story of how the great family fortune was blown. And the lesson was you got to be careful with money. So my two older brothers and my younger sister. We're very different people. But we are old super frugal and super kaffa with money. So that is where for me. The drive comes from that. Hey you gotta look out for yourself. You gotta be calf with money. You've got to be a good safer and really you know you have to be your own best advocate you. The typical mocking department of a large corporation. The typical wall street house does not have your best interests in hot. So the person is gonna fight for. You is you and so. How did you realizing this that. You had to live a life of financial independence. Save money live on less than you make all that. How did that end up in this journalism career. That has been part of who you have an for decades. I guess we all have talents. And i have this one peculiar talent which is take fruitfully complex world of financial management and put it into plain english and for some reason or other people have been willing to cut me a paycheck for most of my career for doing that. And so you have been through life's ups and downs and in your personal life and life just like anybody else. But you've managed all through the years all through the setbacks and let's face it working as a journalist is not the best paying profession in the world you managed.

"Planning and the use of a liner. I swear what is it about st louis. That's like the mafioso headquarters of ortho you got. You got the orthodontic. The american association of orthodontics there the international social sayre is it that arch is is that arch wire as i was actually part of our logos funny so that we made our logo art Sales arch within the sexiest shadow. Another arch wire into the two arches. So yeah that's very very student to view and has to be an arch wire. I mean that is ground zero for orthodontics around the world. Isn't it significant history here rocket the al building a angle was here. We have a lot of rape rate. Or the nasa came to san jose steeped in history for sure. Yeah i and a i'm And you know what's interesting is the first president of the american dental association was an md and adidi ass. The current president of the american dental association is an oral surgeon. Md's edward h angle. I just want to believe that. The answer howard. If it doesn't just don't don't tell me i've lived under this Do you know what i said for. I actually don't. But i think our pretty darn. Yeah just start telling everybody howard. He was named after me one hundred years before. But yeah edward h angle. He was an md anna dds. He's the father of american orthodontics. Do you ever wonder he lived eighteen. Fifty five to nineteen thirty. What do you think. Edward would think about today. You brought him back to life he. Obviously everything was routed a biology especially being a deed. It's a wealthy was thinking through and how he was really at the inventing the profession or the don except time. But looking now the way everything's gone digital and how related customize appliances To the patient versus having to actually than everything by hand or and everything by hand. I think he'd be just amazed. Pervasive orthodontics is. How much is expanded as. I think back when he was doing it. Obviously we're going through his. I think his mind would be blonde to to keep it short and simple. Well i tell you what. I'm having a hard day to day. 'cause i found out that the h. was for hartley. It wasn't a howard. Gosh but it does goes to show you that. I'm the world is changing so fast. I mean if you if you don't like what's happening in the world. All you gotta do is wait a year or five years or ten years. It's just upward and onward. I mean every. I am always sell my boys. When they're bummed out about you know what's happening. And whatever. And i just say well man you flip back every hundred years it just gets better and better and yeah. It's two steps forward. One step time by this pandemic bother me really at all because i'd rather i'd rather have humans attacked by another species of virus than when they start killing each other. Everybody's talking about cova killed three million people it's like i- reminder world war two was seventy million. I'll take three million deaths from another species any day than when humans turn on each other and start going to town on each other. That that's the worst thing ever so so i gotta ask you have you been vaccinated. I have actually. This is the day after. Cdc announced that Flu vaccine will no longer need to socially distance or wear masks public. Which was the biggest blessing. 'cause i'm ready to get back to the way things were quite honestly You know we've been through a lot. Obviously like you said you know relative to what it actually was versus what it could have been you know the past year. Yeah were there challenges. We have to think on our feet. We did most dennis. Ray blasts most denser Doing pretty well now we. We're definitely moving on so. I'm definitely backs knitted us smell family. Got by data. Had told you howard before we started. He's seventy years old still works so i think that was a huge relief for him. I could literally hear the selection of voice change the day that he got his vaccine. I rise summer stress. Wait it had been carrying his Obviously it's a scary situation but You know we're we're getting on the other side of it so we're very fortunate. Yeah does it concern you yesterday. We heard that on my favorite friday night show is bill maher on dentistry uncensored saturday night. It's saturday night live but he cancelled tonight because despite being fully vaccinated he came down with covert and then Kyle was telling me this morning that the on the new york yankees. They had the johnson johnson vaccine and now like a dozen of them are sick. Does that mean I had the bio intech visor. But do you know. Do you think there's something going on do you think there's a new variant is that Are we not out of the woods yet. The concerns me. I think somewhat understood read about it. Know people get the vaccine. It's not a hundred percent effective in Covid you're not usually not going to the hospital. I usually possible. The mobility decreases significant rate. Flu shot at radio but have i got the flu. Shot on a flu. The answer's yes But the fleet. Kill me on not So at some point you know we have to kind of look at it globally and understand what vaccines doing for us is keeping us out of the hospital talking to prevent anyone getting cova. Were probably have to keep on getting the vaccine forward through our lives so You know a to surprised that. You're getting kobe even though they've been backseat necessarily so as long as not dying in hospital. I think that's the way see. Your dad turned seventy two yesterday or yup win thirteen yesterday. My seventy years old happy birthday happy birthday. Happy day for me. That is just amazing. My gosh i don't wanna get too deep and personal on your but working with the family. I mean i had two older sisters and they left. High school went straight to the catholic nunnery than i had three younger sisters. You got married had babies. But when i was ten dad went from delivering rainbow bread for eleven grand a year or two. He saved up his money even though he only made eleven grand a year and had seven kids and a stay at home spouse. He was still able to save up. Those ten years bought a sonic drive-in franchise and my gosh. The rest was history. I mean just but when we would work for him he was. He was a tough dune. He was my idol. I loved it. But my god my five sisters did not like if he if he was too hard on workers that i told you to bubba. They would carry that baggage home and then that night they wanna talk to them or whatever and and data could be like. Is she mad. Because i made her redo. The onion rings or l. Is going on but i know it's different for every dad mom and brother and sister but what's it like working in a family. You're in there with your dad and your sister. Have you ever had to call nine one one to break up a fight you know Smells like roses at your. Obviously we have our disagreements. You tend to speak out on a different level with your family. Then you put your your your colleagues or peers. A family of a honesty also helps in another way is..
