AP Source: Chargers' team doctor punctured Taylor's lung
"Adam, Schefter just reported that tyrod Taylor. The reason why he did not get to play this past week in an intern air bear started for the first time against Kansas City chiefs at ended with hitting a fifty eight yard field goals and another fifty eight yard field goal. But a highly contested matchup between the chargers the chiefs it is now being reported that the chargers team doctor accidentally punctured his own quarterback tyrod Taylor's lung just before kick-off. Sunday while trying to administer a painkilling injection to the quarterbacks cracked ribs league and team sources have told ESPN. According to my sources. Adam Schefter says, now, this sounds terrible whenever you give your I read this and like especially the way she afterward it there the chargers team doctor punctured his own quarterbacks lungs, and that sounds absolutely bad and I was kind of mind blown by this believe it or not. We are given a heads up on this yesterday but we're not a big news breaking world I don't want to dive into the news breaking world because there's a bunch of Peron in sharks in. Going ever dive in there. So I asked around to a couple former teammates in friends of mine that have maybe gotten the same procedure how the hell can something like this happens this sounds terrible in the answer I got from everybody who has had this procedure done, which by the way is marketing, which is in the Novacaine. There's another Cain the mark which is. A numbing agent basically that gets shot directly into the area that is injured for instance, in this particular case, the cracked ribs. Now, the reason why it's done. So close to game time is because it only lasts four four and a half hours so they can't get it done in the morning because the numbness wear off, they can't get it done the night before because. Off they have to do it right before the game, which is why it was surprised to everybody that air bear was starting over tyrod Taylor, including Air Bear, and I would assume the entire chargers offense. Now, what happens though just like whenever you're in surgery now granted this happened to the people I talked to harm percents short happened to tyrod Taylor but just like whenever you go in for surgery for anything, they tell you the possible side effects this could. Potentially happen because surgery this could potentially happen. It's like basically this small print at the bottom of contracts like, Hey, this is all the good looking come from this but also this can happen every person that I talked to got a similar treatment as this said that they were told by the doctor that there was a chance that along could get punctured in the process because when you're giving a shot into the ribs, the long obviously is right there one. A. Hundred percent sure of tyrod Taylor. Was told that before we got the shock. I'm just telling you what I was told by people who got very the exact same situation here free. The bruised ribs are cracked ribs allegedly this is a much more common practice than even I knew about I've probably seen guys potentially get this shop before and didn't even know this was happening because I had nothing to do with me but I guess this is a pretty Common practice whenever you have a crab or bruise rib because it works like a charm I was told and I was also told that they shoot it a little bit above wherever the crack or the bruises in. Let's just settling in for four and a half five hours. You feel amazing. It's that next day you see more that night when it wears off that you feel absolutely terrible thus why I am incredibly happy that I played a position where no motherfuckers. where I could potentially need that. So that is what happened. We obviously tease piece for the punctured lung and the cracked ribs for tyrod. Taylor but from my knowledge of my research calling people that got a similar thing, they said that they were told that was a possible outcome. It's like point one percent that it could happen. But in surgery just like anything in the medical field, there is obviously a chance at something bad to happen it happened tyrod Taylor. I'm not giving an excuse for the doctor do your fucking job right? Especially whenever the people that told me, they said it's like a ninety nine. percent chance it goes well and nothing happens. So if you get that one percent and it's a failure, obviously the doctor did not do here and I would assume would have to answer for that. But that is what I've been told about this entire process. That is why it was such a shock to everybody including air bear who said he was surprised in ancient said, let's go and do this. So I think that is why everything happened the way it is I've been told I'm not a doctor they are not doctors but a punctured lung on punctures itself somehow I don't know that means I guess. Shout out to the human body for puncturing itself. He could play week to week is really could potentially play next week. What do you say day breaking news just from in report he's not GonNa play this week harbored is going to start. Okay. So here we go. There's big news not playing this week. So as long isn't completely on punctured and also. I think that is why because the way one down in him losing the starting job was actually the chargers fault that is why Anthony Lynn came out and said unless. tyrod is he's still are started because I would assume Anthony Len former player was like we gotta fuck this guy here. So whenever he was asked about who's the starter even after incredible debut by Air Bear in the game that they had against the Super Bowl Champs Anthony Lynn probably was. I mean, we couldn't say it obviously because worn one hundred percent. Sure because at the time they're probably still reviewing and Anthony Lane. Prada. Didn't get a chance to do a full checkup on house whatever the case maybe didn't and he didn't want to be like. tyrod Taylor's by the way. We're the reason he's out and he is we made this disease like they. Couldn't say that. So that's why I think I was confused by the way insulin handled the question I think a lot of people are potentially confused but now we know air bear starting this weekend tyrod Taylor not only has cracked ribs but also punctured lung hopefully that unpunctual quickly we're not doctors they have no idea but it is nice to know that this type of thing does happen has happened in the past we probably. Haven't heard about it for whatever reason, and this is something that happens on a regular basis with success. So it's not like they were going above and beyond to make him put him on the field. This is something that has happened in the past
Wildfire Ignition is Solvable
"Right. Now, if I look out my window, I, see a very Brown's guy. It looks like it's twilight but you know it's ten o'clock in the morning and it should be a bright and sunny grew up in California I'm Californian for almost my entire life. And you know I have many graduate students in my lab at Stanford that come here from all over the place and they sort of assumed that it's normal. And I had to tell him now I mean I don't remember this ever when I was growing up I mean you'd hear about. Fires every once in a while on the on the news but it certainly in the last couple years has become a completely regular thing. So I can certainly understand your eagerness to to help solve this problem, solve ables about how you're GonNa do it what's your solvable for dealing with these fires? Many many millions of gallons of retardant. So used every year right the iconic red stuff you see being dropped from planes. And that's really only ever used reactively. So once a fire has started. Our main approach is trying to stop them before they start. Now one of the limitations that we're trying to address is if you want to go and pre treat areas where you know fires are going to start. One of the primary limitations of the current hardens that they don't stay where you put. A high wind or heavy do is enough to wash the retardants off the vegetation. So they stopped working off. So what we sought to do was to to not create a new retardant let's say 'cause we're using the same active fire retarding agent but instead tweaking the performance additives so that the retarded stays on the vegetation. Throughout the duration of the fire season. So you can spray one time in June. Let's say and have protection against fire starts. All the way through until the rainy season comes. So can you describe this stuff? What's it like if you touch it how does it feel? It's not quite a lot of people think of Jello and they think of a gel in it's not thick like that. It looks Kinda like cream really So what we developed in my lab improves the adherence. So more of what you spray actually sticks on the vegetation and it improves the durability. So it's really only once you get into the ratings season that the materials will wash away and simply biodegrade on the soil. Yeah. The evidence in I mean you know it works yes. So we did pilot scale studies to test ourselves and we tried to burn it It was actually. Kinda fun because you know we would do the experiments and and see the fire would not actually ignite even through extensive weathering. So we rain to half an inch on it and let it sit in the environment for six weeks. The treated grass, it wouldn't burn. So some of the folks that we're working with started just drawing funny faces in the grass with the with a torch because even if you took a torch to, it wouldn't ignite. Wow. Then we were able to step it up and actually do some full scale pilot studies in and treated a number of roadside segments in southern, California many of them are small but every one of these ignitions requires crews to go out and put him out. So they use a lot of resources that take a firefighter time that they could be spending doing things like controlled burns. And we reported that they were zero fires in the treated areas Eric, this targeted intervention, right? You don't need to treat the whole forest. You just go where the fires most likely to happen. Yeah. Exactly. I think that's An important misconception that I see a lot of places know we're not talking about treating the entire forest like you would with a controlled burn. We're talking about treating only right where the fires likely to start, and so if you envision a roadside where if you have a car that overheats and it pulls over into the grass, right next to the roadway or somebody throws a cigarette out of their window, it only lands right next. To the roadway, and so you only have to treat right there and what's beautiful about that is that let's say a twenty foot wide treatment protects all of the forest beyond it. Yeah and this cream that you're spraying is it is it safe for plants and trees and birds and animals and people I mean something about the look of that read stuff coming out of planes I always think I would not like to be underneath it. Yeah. So we when we were developing this, we specifically designed it to be safe. That was one of the the primary concerns because anything you're putting out in the environment, you want to be one hundred percent certain that it's safe and effective. We designed it using cellulose, adjust plant matter, and a thing called Colloidal Silica, which you can think of as Nanna sand. So it's just primarily sand and
Fall is here. So is a rise in coronavirus cases.
"Week we hit two hundred thousand deaths in the United, states from the covid nineteen pandemic. My name is Lenny Bernstein and cover health and medicine for the Washington Post. We, are into the high six millions in terms of the number of infections. A. Very major milestone. Reminder of what this has done our country. And as were facing this milestone in. What are we seeing in terms of the infection rate and things are actually going here in the US in trying to get things under control. So we had a small lull. Over the last month or two. It's nothing like what we needed. The number of infections came down into the thirty and forty thousand. which is way too high a baseline to be heading into the winter. The virus does better in the cold. It's just what viruses do. And we are going to be going indoors more which means the possibility for. Infecting each other for spread of the virus is going to increase. So we are between two parts of this pandemic coming out of a small lull that really can't be described as controlling the virus and moving into a period of the year that is fraught with very grim possibilities And in terms of what we're seeing more recently as we get into this trickier part of the year. which groups are we seeing experiencing a rise in Cova cases and where are we seeing this rise start to begin? So something like thirty states have had a rise in their case load over the past seven days it's in the Mid West. It's in the DAKOTAS Oklahoma I believe Missouri. Lots of states in the middle part of the country. It is a lot of college towns. University students have gone back to school and not all of them are following the rules about masking and about maintaining distance and washing hands, and so we are seeing outbreaks at colleges and universities across the country. As we speak, the entire student population of the University of Colorado in Boulder is on quarantine, and as you probably could guest win large numbers of students in college and university towns become infected, they tend to spread it around those towns as well. So they're taking the bulk of the blame right now. Because our testing system is so screwed up. You. Can never be one hundred percents sure that when you're seeing a rise, it just doesn't mean that we're actually doing more testing in that area
A Sustainable Startup Is Taking a Bite Out of the Toothpaste Market
"Something to chew on more than a billion toothpaste tubes or thrown away every year. That's the equivalent of fifty empire state buildings of discarded plastic tubes accumulating in landfills and oceans but wait isn't plastic recyclable. Well, that's what we thought. But earlier this month and NPR and PBS expose found that most recycling companies are only recycling milk jugs and soda. Bottles. That's Right Those Food Containers Yogurt Cups and other plastics that you painstakingly rinse out and throw into your recycling bin get buried in the landfill just like the other trash and toothpaste tubes typically have aluminum in them aren't recyclable at all. Now, one cheeky tooth care startup wants to clean up the sectors act bite toothpaste bits has one of those typical problem solving origin stories. Founder Lindsey McCormack was bothered by the toothpaste tube she threw away in her spare time she came up with a chewable tablet that foam just like her favourite paste the company rack up about fifty thousand subscribers in a year. Bite take sustainability. Seriously the tablets are vegan gluten free and packaged refillable glass jars subscribe to refills and they in sacks you can throw into a compost heap. McCormick also managed to ditch many of the chemicals found in typical household brands. She even made an appearance on his shark tank where she turned down a six-figure offer from Mark Cuban. McCormack said, she wanted to keep more control over the company Bite recently released a line of vegan plastic free dental floss. The startup will have to face down some goliath-sized competitors though toothpaste giant Colgate is making its own sustainability play overseas the brands smile for good toothpaste is nearly one hundred percent natural and certified Vegan most toothpastes can't be certified begin because the animal derived glycerin they use. USA. Today reports smile good uses plant based Glycerin instead, it's also packaged in a plastic tube made from high density polyethylene also called HD. HD. p. e. actually is recyclable is the same plastic us to make milk jugs smile for goods much. anticipated. Packaging has a long time coming. It took the company five years to figure out how to make a recyclable plastic tube soft enough to squeeze. Parent company Colgate Palmolive says all of its products will have recyclable packaging within five years. Smile for good is being rolled out in Europe the company staying quiet on when or if it's coming to the US though these moves away from non recyclable plastics are good news for the environment, and if there are any silver linings to the horrors of this pandemic one may be this sustainability has more selling power consumers are more sensitive to the environmental impact of their purchases, according to progressive, Grocer magazine and July study by new. York University found that sustainability marketed products continue to grow during the pandemic even as other brands floundered. That priority is clearly not lost on companies ranging from scrappy startups, worldwide conglomerates that one a sink their teeth into a bigger space of the market share by.
New York Giants Confirm Saquon Barkley Tore ACL, Out For The Season
"There are terrible injuries all over the NFL yesterday alone. Nick. Bosa. From the niners Saquon Barkley from the giants both suffered torn ACL statistics show that through two weeks nfl record twice as many significant injuries as last year. It's actually at least six players suffered a torn acl including just recently Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin Eleven, injuries to starters in the one o'clock games alone John Do you think these injuries have something to do with the fact that there were no preseason games. Well. For example, the Rams don't play any of their starters in preseason games I think is in the spirit of your question i. think it has something to do with no camp no real camp they kind of shotgun training camp and I don't know how you could make the opposite argument that it has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't tied to preseason games what I would do it to the fact that there was very little tackling. Yes in. The game started and the other thing is I know Kyle Shanahan the niners felt like the field wasn't ready like the field I think he played in the meadowlands and he's got play there again next week because he played the jets and now he's GonNa, play the giants. Players on both teams going down. So I don't necessarily think that the facilities were one hundred percent prepared either I think again, I think the spirit of your question is the fact that they fast tracked everything and started the season. Because of Covid is that having any do with the injuries I don't know how you could say it doesn't I think it has to yeah. I mean I I completely agree I mean between training camp and preseason games where guys at least get a sense for what they get a reminder of what getting hit is like. I think they're I think they would be better off. It is an extraordinary number of injuries and none worse than Christian McCaffrey who's gone for four to six weeks and his the stalwart of my fantasy team just loyal to John Ireland how about? Yeah. I cleaned your clock thinking Matt Ryan. But. How about how about Saquon out for the year? Yeah. Entirely out for the year Bosa gone for the with a tornado. And that means that the giants I. It might be a race between the giants and the jets who the worst team football is. The whole new. York City area has to just garbage football teams because the jets are a mess and now the giants have no running game. So it's going to have it's going to have after-effects. All these
ByteDance Says It Won. Trump Says Not So Fast. TikTok Continues For Now.
"Okay, here's what I can tell you. You can still use tiktok as of this moment president trump since we last spoke said he approved Oracle's bid for the US. Operations of tiktok quote in concept, and so essentially the US delayed the planned tick tock band by about a week as Oracle Walmart looked to take a twenty percent stake in Tiktok globals planned pre IPO round as well as of course, the deals to host talks us user data and computer systems quoting Bloomberg I approve the deal and concept trump told reporters Saturday as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Fayetteville north. Carolina if they get. It done. That's great. If they don't, that's okay too and quote the new company which will be called tiktok global has agreed to funnel five billion dollars in new tax dollars to the US and set up a new education fund which trump said would satisfy his demand that the government receive a payment from the deal quote they're going to be setting up a very large fund. He said that's their contribution that I've been asking for an quote Oracle plans to take a twelve point, five percent stake in the new tiktok level. While Walmart said, it has tentatively agreed to by seven point, five percent of the entity. Walmart's. Officer Doug Macmillan will serve on tiktok global's board of directors. The retailer said in a statement for of the five board seats will be filled by Americans according to the statement tic TACs. Owner Bite dance is seeking evaluation of sixty billion dollars for the APP, according to a person familiar with the matter Oracle and Walmart would pay a combined twelve billion dollars for their stakes. If they agreed to that asking price, the final valuation has not been set as the party's worked out the equity structure and measures data security. The person said terms are still in flux and the proposed valuation could still change and quote. Yet more about that flex in a second but more about that five billion dollar payment to the government. The president mentioned I. Guess That's the key money by another name that he was asking for all along except that seems to have come as news to at least most of the parties involved Oracle later confirmed it to a degree but quoting Dan primack on twitter. More about tiktok quote Payments Number One the Education Fund is not to fun trump's patriotic history project number two, the five billion dollar figure is not codified anywhere and no one expects it to be anywhere near that big number three, the five billion dollars to the Treasury is anticipated payroll taxes over an unspecified period. Of Time, there will be an education focused effort using tick tock short video format distribution tool, but there is no dollar amount tied to it with trump seeming to inflate the payroll tax figure with the Education Fund remember Tick Tock doesn't have five billion dollars at least not until its IPO wants to complete within twelve months and quote. So. Again has this all been Kabuki theatre make the president think he's getting his key money. Give a politically connected firm, a sweetheart deal, and even if the five billion dollars is really not going to be five billion dollars again, we have the president of the government forcing the investment of private property, giving it to favourite entity and essentially asking for a kickback exactly. What happens in Banana Republics Super? Oh and about that whole thing being inflex bite dance. This morning was asserting that it is maintaining majority ownership and control over tick tock global and will not transfer any source code or technology to Oracle or Walmart so essentially waving a flag saying they won. Quoting the Financial Times bite that set on money that it would maintain majority ownership and control of tiktok global contradicting statements by Donald trump oracle, and Walmart after it agreed a deal with the companies to continue operating in the US Oracle, the US technology group, and Walmart, the world's biggest bricks and mortar retailer said in a joint statement at the weekend that Tiktok level would be majority owned by American investors and quote however while they're state combined with the equity held by. Long standing US investors by dance might mean, American investors would be the biggest financial beneficiaries, direct majority ownership and control of the business is set to remain with the Chinese company in a statement released on January tat chow by dances Chinese social media platform. The company said tiktok global would be a quote one, hundred percent fully owned subsidiary. The company added that after raising funds ahead of a potential initial public offering, it would have an eighty percent stake in the company and quote. So maybe that wasn't a good thing to go spouting off about because this either means now the deal is really off. Because the Chinese side really doesn't want it or else the deal is off because the president isn't going to be pleased about that more in just one second or else everyone is just GonNa declare victory and. Meaningful has actually changed my money's on that but hard to tell at this point because to conclude. About thirty minutes ago. President trump. said, he would not approve a tick tock deal bite dance ceded control, and well I don't know.
Khan Academy: Sal Khan
"Most of the products and services we've talked about on the show have been innovative or disruptive in some way. But some of them and you've heard me say this before have fundamentally changed the way we live I mean lift AIRBNB starbucks. Shop Affi-. wayfair. These brands have transformed the way that many of us shop and travel and work. But every now, and then a founder comes along that seems to want to do something even more ambitious, even more transformative like remember. Pat. Brown, he founded impossible foods to create meet out of plants meet. So meet like that even the most die-hard carnivores would want to eat it. Pat Wants to put a stop to meet production period because of the damage, it's doing to the planet and essentially and I don't think I'm overstating this. He set out from day one to change the world. But still. Pat Brown stands to make a lot of money from his company same with most of the founders who've been on this show and I don't think any of them are motivated primarily to make money but it is part of the story they make a product or offer service, sell it to you and me, and they also get rich perfectly fine. But what about someone who makes a product or offers a service that is equally transformational maybe even more so but makes it one hundred percent free To do that, you have to make personal sacrifices starting by earning a lot less money. which is just part of what makes Sal Khan. So incredibly remarkable. Over the past twelve years, he's built Khan Academy into a powerhouse, a massive online learning platform that offers free tutorials to anyone anywhere. And from the very beginning South sided, his academy would be a nonprofit that it should never be tempted to compromise on its values. But before he launched Khan, Academy Sal didn't anticipate any of this. He was just trying to help a younger cousin with her sixth grade math lessons at the time he was working for a hedge fund. But from those early days of doing one on one to toils sal gradually built a platform that offers hundreds of classes in dozens of languages. Nearly thirty million people use Khan Academy. Every month to learn math science arts even sat prep all four free and Khan. Academy has inspired the launch of many other online learning platforms, but many of them are for profit operations that charge money. But we'll get to all that moment first. Let's back up just a little bit sal Khan grew up in metairie Louisiana his mom was from India and his dad was from Bangladesh and the marriage ended when sal was pretty young. My parents. Had issues and so they separated when I was probably about eighteen months old two years old and then I had really never seen my father and I saw once four an evening when I was thirteen and then he passed away the next year so it was really might. mother who raised us as as a single mother. While was there a community of South Asian families in imagery? Growing up. Yeah my you know when my parents separated. We actually live with my young at the time they were in their twenty s, and so they all were kind of like father figures and almost like older siblings to to me as well and and a lot of ways they were not your stereotypical you know. Just come to the US study. Get a job save money kind of prudent immigrant story they were. They were much more embracing of New Orleans. Culture. And I would say they're the most new ORLEAN South Asians. You will ever find it in your life. I had a very colorful childhood. You know late night parties, people, singing, and dancing. For me it felt like a I remember my third birthday that my uncles got a belly dancer. I still remember Habiba you know So it was definitely a different type of childhood, but it was a in some ways a really rich one. So what did your mom do for a living? The first job that I remember her having she she was the person who takes the change out of the vending machine at the at the local hospital actually the hospital where I was born and she took me to work a couple of times 'cause she didn't have childcare and I thought at the time I remember watching her do that. I think it was like the coolest job on earth because you have the key that you can open up the vending machine and like quarters just pour out of it. So she did that for a little bit and then essentially was a cashier at a series of convenience stores is kind of doing you know one minimum wage job after another and then I was in high school she had remarried her my Stepdad at the time were able to. Kind of cobble together to get a a small convenience store in. Your book you write. Louisiana was as close to South Asia as the United States could get. It's spicy food. Giant cockroaches in the corrupt government which is both funny but somewhat true true. I guess right I mean. You grew up at a time when. Like David Duke was the. The representative in steel her. The part of Mary where we had our store, it was called seminole convenience store on Seminole Avenue, and it's called a parliamentary called on that was kind of the heart of David Dukes base. So to speak I remember in a right outside of our our store across the street was the largest David Duke for president signing I've ever seen and so it was A. You know the the folks who lived in the neighborhood who were frankly know Super David Duke supporters in some ways it was lucky. This is pre nine eleven They didn't really know what to make of my family at at the time We've had a few conversations I remember with people the store where they they openly told us that they were trying to decide whether we were white or the N. word to you know we were confusing them but you know growing up I was the only Brown kid in in the classroom. But I never felt in school at all like folks were in any way biased or racist against me. If anything I have to give the the school system to Jefferson parish school system, a lot of credit you know I think a lot of what I am today is because they gave me opportunities there were teachers that believed in me. I had a really good friend circle So so I have no. You, know I I don't feel like it was a a tough childhood.
Celebrities and cocktails
"So nice to see you again interior. It's been a long while I o spend the two years since I left new. York At, busy. So Nice to be you. I will say that I was like, what am I gonNa say I like you from that? I was like Oh everything. You've done is like one of the things that I love the most? Well, I was GONNA. Say. So you recently started a podcast it's called busy Phillips is doing her best showing Thira is a huge part of that podcast. It's very and yeah. So you interview celebrities and people of note, and just talk about how people are pivoting and doing their best. At it is very timely to now you started this podcast before. Well, I feel like we sold it almost a year ago with October of last year you know basically we had a whole idea for a new way of doing things and making stuff and we were working on this really big projects that had a lot of moving parts and we had like our big meeting with all of these money people in New York that was scheduled for March sixteenth. how and that was that you know, and so I we. Timing. Yeah. You know whatever we're I feel very blessed in my life to be a person that's able to have perspective and self-awareness and Ceantierre and I have been talking a little bit during that time also just like we've kept in touch since busy tonight and I always just loved like are writer's room and busy tonight was really small is only three writers which for those of you at home that's slowly insane. Very. Small I think we had more writers doing ashby another. For. Clear they were being paid less. Absolutely. No one was making a ton of money. Why it was so confusing that they cancel because I was like is this show is free. Just crazy. The shoe string that we were managing to do that. You know I feel like was a really successful show at the. But nobody uses the term like indie talkshow nobody that but it really wasn't indeed talk show that's like. We. Definitely should have gotten. Independent Spirit Award. One hundred percent. If we could go back. Let's get some games. We gotta get. Some Games. Can we can I say one more thing though about the podcast Ligo I have a theme song that I sang and Mr Jonathan Coulton wrote the theme song for me to how did you not tell us this? All of our meetings, Jonathan talking about busy and getting ready for this. You'd you felt no need to just mention that I. You know I don't like to Brag. I WANNA tell everybody. I love. Good the full picture. Okay. So you eighty first game, you're going to work together in this one. I know shed Thira cut it knows the drill obviously, but you're gonNA, work together. This one this is a word game So those are typically on the tougher side. It's also about famous people and alcohol. Great things I love, right yeah. Let's go. So my God. In any particular order depending on the day? I'll take either both of them lift my spirits. So, we're going to give you a cocktail recipe that describes a mash up of a cocktail in the name of a celebrity and you are going to give us the Masher. I'm ready heads up I drink a whisky. NEAT.

Forever, I'm in Hawaii, I'd go to the Pink Hotel and I have one in her honour office.

Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.
TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations
"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead. Jeff bezos Richard Branson Warren Buffett Bill Gates Ruth Bader Ginsburg Phil Knight Oprah all of them and more are featured in how to lead this essential leadership playbook illustrates the principles and guiding philosophies of the world's greatest game changers discover the expert secrets to being. Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S
Inside the BLAST Restructure
"Blasts saying corona has hit our bank account a little bit. We gotTA restructure this if we want to really make it beneficial for the long haul. So what they're doing is moving forward, they will be increasing the participation fees paid two teams and reducing the prize money again. The I feel like this was kind of lost in the tweet because their initial tweet didn't really explain very well, the total sum paid by blast will remain identical. Okay. So I think that's important at the end of the day to realize that however the kicker here. Is the players aren't necessarily seeing that payout for participation. They see a lot of times in their contracts, the prize money. So you're taking away prize money to give it to direct payout to the ORG which you're like okay. Well, what's the big deal? It's all going to the same place not necessarily because pending on your contract pending on the Org again they only give you your pay right they give you what you agreed for on a payment and the prize money. So the double whammy here is that they failed to consult the counter. Strike Professional Players Association the CS. On this manner question for you why do they have to do that? That's a very good question which I'm glad you brought it up because I always every time this comes up in the world of counterstrike with. Like the CS PPA. Up We were not consulted about this we will be speaking with them behind closed doors blah blah, blah no one here heard about this at what point do they? Do you think they call an emergency meeting and say guys do people even know were around? Like do they like and I've said this before I feel like they have lost their own way whereas before it came out, it was, hey, we wanna look out what's best for the players while also working with tournament organizers and or gigs. To figure out what's best for like the system right now while then it's kind of turned into well, no, we feel like it should just be this way and we're going to create our own rankings because we don't like the way they do it You know things like that. I? Guess. You know perfect player union world. Yes. You would consult the players if you're going to change the payout. However if they didn't need you to start it, why would they consult you to change it? I'm probably GONNA take like a approach on this that if any players listening, I apologize ahead of time but like in a way what Henry g did by releasing the salary information I, say Henry Cloud Nine as the cloud nine decision right team decision to release salary? Information. Like you're not gonNA get a ton of sympathy from me at least when it comes to a little bit more money going into the owners pockets because what I see like again, this is one hundred percent my point of view I. don't even know if you agree with this what? I what I see in counterstrike right now is a game that is getting to this Odd Breaking Point doesn't mean the game's going to go away or die or nothing like that. I'm just saying it's at a point where. There's just this top end were just really top heavy in the fall off to me is is fairly massive when it comes to the landscape or the overall ecosystem of counterstrike, we're not seeing a ton of new teams invest into counterstrike. We've talked to team owners that have said it's a bad investment other than getting your name out there like if you're willing if you're willing to put in the money to be one of the top five. Great, it's good recognition by kind of beyond that. We see several team owners taking cheaper. Pats just to stay. Around in counter strike, but not necessarily the compete at the highest level because they know. To do that, it's millions of dollars in now we see a contract for the first time right now I know that includes Alex is a buyout but let's just say he's he's making around three four hundred K. annually off of this contract. Plus a buy out fee and then he's getting prize money from the six hundred events that go on throughout the year. Right? It's not like blast has. One. Event there multiple events in including one pretty much. Every weekend at this point, right weather's blast or star ladder ESL or face it. There's an event. Every single weekend at this point players are making really good money. Now I know there's a saying like, well, it's never enough right like you should be able to get whatever you're able to will. This was an opportunity for the elders in blast toward together in make making a little bit more beneficial for the ORG is. A huge problem in that. If they didn't consult with them. It's because they chose not to you know they didn't WanNa do it like we know you guys are making a ton of money. We need ours. Also a blast is still paying out the same amount, but I do feel for ownership groups right now in counterstrike because it is so outrageously expensive ended it's taken away from us a little bit in my mind because of how inflated the cost of Gone We've seen. Teams completely just wipe themselves out of counterstrike together we saw cloud nine one of the biggest stories take two year hiatus essentially from the game because they didn't want to compete at a high level. That's what it came down to. Right. They have the money the one of the most valuable orange but chose not to spend. Yeah. In put all their resources into counterstrike instead don't have two dollar and team cloud nine the just enough to stay relevant. That's it. They did the again that we've seen several teams do let's keep our name in the game refloating around right. If his top thirty we'RE STILL ON HDTV, we're still going to be in a handful of events 'cause re cloud nine a but at the end of the day, they didn't see it worthwhile to invest in the counter strike again, they're coming back now but that's after they have two dollar and teams in they're probably saying good success in other areas. Yeah. Ah Let. Me Tell you where I have a problem with because ultimately I think I leaned closer to you. My problem is not that they didn't consult with the Players Association. 'cause consulting means a conversation. Right? My problem is if there was no heads up given because it's not like this is in the off season of blast there in the middle of the event, right? They are still in the tournament mode four like the main blast that will eventually lead to like their big major, right For blast. That's where I have the issue because if you're if you're changing the prize pool mid tournament and not giving them a heads up I. Understand the reason. Obviously. We don't know all the numbers, but all we constantly hear about. How you know the tournament organizers make barely any money and the owners encounter strike especially, pretty much lose money. Right. Having a counter strike team. And yet. Always see from these players are Gucci watches you know Yeezy. Right like they're doing pretty okay. Not Every player I understand that. But for the most part, they're doing pretty okay with their salaries. Heard. From counterstrike pros saying that they won't go to events unless they're staying five star hotels for the most part like the best of the best tower tournament organizers where the. Name anything here but there's a place will say locally where I'm not even kidding you next door, there is a walkway, a covered walkway that leads from the hotel to the place where they were having the event and the players didn't want to stay at the hotel because it wasn't nice enough and this hotel is a Sheridan. It wasn't like a king to know knock on. Lucina. It's a shared. Sakes. Like. Four Star Hotel Four Seasons or anything but. Still pretty good and they wouldn't do it. So then the tournament organizers had to switch the hotel, right? The players went there and said, nope, this isn't up to our standards then switched the hotels and everything here like don't get it twisted. And it's actress counterstrike I'd say most East sports athletes. For being guys that like have very minimum requirements to get by in life like I've seen your room behind your Webcam right we know how some of these guys live they have very high standards when it comes to like pampering them. So No, I think for blast to take a conscious stand and be like we can't survive doing this. Let me ask the players this would you rather have more prize money? Or. Would you rather have? Would you rather have more prize money and blast fold after this because they can't afford To recoup or would you rather have? A reputable event. In blast payout a little less give your or more money to hopefully that will come back to you in some way and then being able to continue because right now that's the only option you have chances are that money is not going back to them in some way though right like. Chances are the orange will pocket money or use it for their expenses that even if? Up The fridge some you out. You know we upgrade the stream room for you guys our facilitation. Pull a microphone get you that private jet.
Big Ten Football Will Begin in 2020, Reversing Earlier Decision
"The big ten season starting officially October. Twenty. That mass. Guessing a little bit of a small base Ga- I mean, the big thing is the daily testing. What will it mean for plays you've declared early and you have an agent though because some some players who realized that you know if you're at Ohio state and you're not gonNA play, you might get your agent get ready for the draft, and now in theory if you've ever signed with an agent, you can never play college football again right so hopefully, something can be worked out because this is an exceptional. That, surely, well, currently there isn't, but obviously, we're in uncharted territory. We've never had never to deal with this situation before. So the NC Double A.'s can have to think on its feet. The big ten will felt pressure from parents, players and other leagues but make no mistake they wanted to play football they. Awesome. There's been talk as if the OH, they don't. They don't care they. You know they don't take football seriously anyone think likes if Michigan Penn State doesn't care about playing football. It's worth so much money to all of. Them it's great that coming back. We'll see if the PAC twelve can do. It's I I remember speaking to a couple of months ago and you asked me how confident I was the NFL season stall on time as normal and whether college football would and I was a hundred percent positive the NFL week one would start as normal. Absolutely note faith that college football would be able to see college football is still in a state of flux. It's a much more complicated situation than the NFL you can just keep these thirty teams. Following the same sort of. Glad to see the big ten back. But it's going to be hard for any of those teams to make the national championship because don't get to play as many games as the other conferences.
Remote Workers are Building Tiny, Gorgeous Backyard Offices
"Now, here's a pandemic inspired trend and a business opportunity very few saw coming the backyard office. With the kids and the spouse at home for months, remote workers are struggling with all that new found and occasionally unwanted intimacy so more and more of us are building tiny offices in our yards. are yards that's right and while the smallest of them may be no more than one hundred square feet or so they can be pretty plush while some handy. Do It yourself or designing and building these standalone getaways themselves others are purchasing stylish prefabricated tiny buildings and that's boosting growth for some existing shed companies and sparking some entrepreneurs to start new companies to fill the sudden demand among them modern shed studio shed, and the one with our favorite name. Some elbow. Room I mean for crying out loud elbowroom room right first. Let's get one thing out of the way. The opportunity to build a separate fully electrified heated and air conditioned office in your yard is a privilege that many just don't have for one building an extra room in the yard requires you to have a yard begin with still it's typically far cheaper than adding a room to your house. Those costs can run more than one hundred, thousand dollars at kangaroo. Systems Kangaroo get a prefab builder out of Waco Texas. The cost of their smallest unit called Quick Room starts at five thousand dollars. Modern sheds prices started about ten thousand for a one hundred square foot shed not surprisingly prices begin climbing as customers expand the size and especially the charm of the buildings at a bathroom in your budget expands further that said privacy is obviously valuable these days which accounts for the sales growth prefab shed companies have been experiencing since. The pandemic emerged Mike Caning CEO of Colorado based Studio Shit Tolsey NBC that by May, the company sales had quadrupled over last year. All signs pointed toward that growth accelerating at modern shed sales were up twenty five percent. June as the summer wore on modern shed general manager Tim vaccine interest gauged by download. The company's catalog was up four hundred percent in typical summers. Interest rises about fifty percent. He told USA Today as homeowners consider buying playhouses and garden sheds. This year, you're more likely to put a desk and a couch in your new tiny building than a shovel and a rake unlike sheds of old. These tiny buildings can look like decorators dreams. They arrive prebuilt with fully insulated walls covered with wall, wood, paneling, picture windows, Cedar Shingles and other decorator touches make these miniature houses well worthy of Pinterest and instagram. And while they can be expensive there also a good investment for people considering Resale CNBC says, a Home Office has shot to the top of the must-have list for new home buyers. It's also a lot easier to build separate tiny offices in your yard than it is to add onto your home because of the prefab nature of these products, Mike Caney, the studio shed. CEO told the new. York Times. They've had a building helicopter to a remote in Alaska and even brought up freight elevators in New York. Providing you don't need a helicopter to take delivery of your new office. It can take only weeks to have your new refuge built once delivered, you'll need a crew to install it and hookup electricity and so forth or you'll need to put in some muscle of your own and keep in mind you might need a city permit or at least approval from an Hoa one other piece of advice for entrepreneurs listening this could be a trend worth. Jumping on if you have construction background and access to supplies, designers and labor. That's what Aaron Callaghan. Co Founder, and CEO of some elbow room did with her husband. Patrick. Callahan, she recently started some elbow room in San Antonio there blanketing the area with marketing and expect to make three quarters of a million dollars. This year like modern hsieh studio shed prices started about ten dollars per square foot but back to buying one of these cute little refuges. Whatever you choose get in line, this is a trend that's just starting and it's likely to get bigger fast as we all continue to shed.

Trump Again Scorns Science on Masks and Vaccines
"Out front tonight the breaking news president trump taking on his CDC director calling him confused and mistaken to issue central to stopping the spread of the virus masks and vaccines. Let's start with this trump. After Dr Robert Redfield head of the CDC said it would be up to eight year before a vaccine is available to the general public. I think he made a mistake when he said that it's just incorrect information. And I called him. And he didn't tell me that and I, think you've got the message maybe confused I saw the statement I called him I said, what did you mean by that? And I think he just made a mistake. To Call, you said that you told him that he made mistakes. What was his response? I said what happened and I got the impression that he didn't realize he said what he might have said I didn't see him say. Okay. Well, let's let you hear him say at here is Dr Redfield today under oath. I think there will be. Vaccine that initially be available sometime between November and December but very limited supply and we'll have to be prioritized if you're asking me, when is it going to be generally available to the American? Public? So we can begin to take advantage of vaccine to get back to our regular life I think we're probably looking at third. Late? Second Quarter? Third Quarter Twenty twenty. One Okay. That is sobering. Late second quarter third quarter. That's the end of the summer of the fall of next year is a year away and it is long after Election Day twenty twenty. That was his honest clear scientific assessment president didn't like it, and then the present continued to suggest that Dr Redfield got it wrong today when he said this. We have clear scientific evidence they work. And they are best defense. I might even go so far as to say that this facemask is more guaranteed to protect me against Ovid. Then when I take a co- vaccine. The irony that the President United States he keeps saying he wants vaccine by Election Day to help him actually has one in his hands and refuses to have his own supporters where I'm at his rallies. That is pretty incredible. But here's the president again publicly rebuking his CDC director. I called him about that. Those were the two things I discussed with him and I believe that if you ask him, he would. Probably. Say that he didn't understand the question because I said to my in the questions, the one question which we covered in the mass. When I called up. Robert Today I said to him what's with the mask? I think I answered that question incorrectly I think maybe misunderstood. That's absurd that he didn't misunderstand and it was very clear. What he said wasn't confused and by the way it's not just that he said it today right held it up and said that about the vaccines and that it's the most effective thing we have he's actually repeatedly said the same thing, the mass work it's not even the first time that he is compared their effectiveness to that of vaccines here he is in July so. We're not powerless. We don't have to wait for a vaccine although I think we're going to be successful. Sooner. Than many people think we have the most powerful weapon. And our hands right now I mean it's it's an enormously powerful weapon. It's just a simple. Flimsy Mask. Consistency well, the president's words are not things. The CDC director can ignore tonight right and just hope they go away. They are a direct assault on him and they are a direct assault on the widely proven science. Trump's HHS spokesperson. Michael Caputo is actually now in a leave of absence for the kind of talk that the president put out there. So cavalierly today trump though of course isn't going anywhere. It's not a little guy down the totem pole caputo and tonight the CDC director has been forced. To respond releasing a statement moments ago, saying quote I one hundred percent believe in the importance of vaccines and the importance in particular of Covid nineteen vaccine. A covid nineteen vaccine is the thing that will get Americans back to normal everyday life. The best defense we currently have against this virus, the important mitigation effects of wearing a mask, washing your hands, social distancing, and being careful about
Snowflake's Stock Price Soars in IPO
"Welcome to pass money a blockbuster debut for the biggest. IPO. Of the year cloud companies snowflake pricing. It's public offering at one hundred, twenty dollars a share closing at two hundred and fifty three dollars a share that is a gain of one hundred and eleven percent. But this isn't the first time. We've seen a monster move in public debut. Let's get to Bop Bassani with more on that Bob. Hello Melissa see you. So you think snowflake over one hundred percent of its first day is a big deal. Not really there's been plenty of companies that have had I ate POPs bigger than that this year loan and they include just take a look here. Biotech firm cure back was up two hundred and forty percent on its first day of trading software as a service firm big commerce up to one hundred percent biotech firm. Berkeley light of nearly two hundred cloud company and Seino up one hundred, ninety, six, percent insurance fintech firm lemonade up. Thirty nine percent on their first day of trading what they have in common is there either tech or biotech firms are they outliers marginally but the first day pop for IPO's this year is notably higher than usual. So the historic first they pop for an IPO usually about fourteen percent. That's. Historically but not this year the average I stay pop in two, thousand, twenty, thirty, six, percent. What's going on? It's not stocks are cheap. The multiple of tech stocks are historically high people are willing to pay more protect because there's just a higher degree of risk appetite out there, and if you're suddenly inspired to start buying these high flying IPO. Cautious. About this look after the first day the post first day returns of other high fliers is not encouraging. So there's been eleven IPO's this year that have popped more than one hundred percent. On the first day they have average a minus, one percent return from the first day closed forward. So be very careful Melissa here big pop on the first day for some of these. But after that very difficult to maintain continued momentum most about you bob thank you good to see you Bob Cassani and who is holding the bag in the aftermarket when these Ip has declined from the first day pop guy probably the retail investor this has been the story of the issue markets. Began though and it continues today. So. You wonder why people get exercise when they see things like this is exactly that I mean I'll say it I'm not. I'm not a banker I never was a banker and I'm sure to upset some people by saying this but. There's no way to put it other than the fact that this was completely misplaced. Now I'm sure the great bankers are J. P. Morgan and Goldman and whoever a city I think was on this deal and company will say, no, we price it right. You can't tell me that a company that has a seventy billion dollar market CAP, which was open it you know price at one twenty and tripled almost in price and had to be halted its some point today for price volatility was priced right and the people watching saying, how is this not a game I? Get it it it upsets me as well but that's the way the business works in that to me is problematic mill. Why does it upset me? WHAT'S THE PROBLEM Tim i? Think they thought it was valued at something investors in the market. Thought it was something else I mean that's the way the markets work right? Again, though it's it's it's terrible price discovery because you have some sense and bankers WANNA price and the companies want a price that deal that leaves him upside for investors but but to be clear this is three times more at least the guide from last week and so the the question really is, how can they be so far off environment where we know people are paying almost anything for growth and actually wear and cloud services but but ultimately, I think the real question is who gets access to this. IPO and the thing that's troubling is that this is not a fair game. And the allocation process is one that makes sense that there are plenty of opportunities for people who did not deserve big allocations to get them and I realized this ultimately. The dynamic of a company. First of all will say I want a certain institutional investor base on my cap stack and those are the people. I want my deal. I. Don't want certain people. Read investors typically are not the group that companies want There's a perception that they're going to be in their flipping those stocks faster. The reality is that there's a lot of hedge funds. They'd probably flip this thing aggressively today. So again to me, my issue is with the allocation process and that it's not. It's it's not a fair process maybe it's not supposed to be asked the bankers that because I think that's what this comes down to to be fair. There are some companies that actually say in the allocation that they want a certain amount to go to retail trading firms like a td Ameritrade for those firms. So then Dole out to retail investors but gosh, I think to brings up a good point in terms of the average per se popping thirty six percent this year that really shows you what this market is these days the search for growth and what investors are willing to pay for that growth. Yeah, and also you got to you have to factor in we're in a different environment. So the offering price is different than the opening price, and all of that is based on interactions with institutions trying to figure out supply demand while everyone is filming from podcast or from an ipad in their home. So it's very different than last year. Very different. The whole IPO process having said that it really speaks to the reach for growth. So, if you have the price action that we saw today. Think about it. It's Tim said you want to have if you're coming out as a public company, you WanNa, put your stock in institutions hands where they're less likely to flip out of that stock on the day of the. IPO. And that's where the whole system. Might be flawed, but it's worked this way for a tremendous amount of time, and there's always going to be a problem with any system anywhere.

How Do I Do the Baby Steps on Disability?
"Eddie's weathers in Salt Lake City Hi Eddie how can we help? Rachel. Talked to you today you to what's up. Well I I'm wondering how my baby step journey actually is going to look I. most of my. Is actually from disability income. and I've somehow managed to make myself to pass baby sent three gut and. Now, I'm looking at. Trying to save for. The future and possibly by home Do you make a smaller earned income so I'm able to contribute to A. Roth IRA. But. I'm just Kinda wondering that doesn't quite get me to the fifteen percents. And I'm wondering how to do that and balance three be at the same time. On this kind of income. So what is your income? Make about. Forty eight, thousand from disability. What is the nature of your disability? blind blind. Okay. All. Right and who pays. Its from a workplace insurance policy thought I was actually injured on the job my goodness I'm sorry. Are you have you lost one hundred percent of your side or just most of it? Good Chunk of it. I still have. Some people would call functional being able to see. Some objects just no find detail at all just generally you can walk around the room but but but the idea of opening up a website and looking at it's off the off the off the out of the options. What are you doing for your extra earn money? I'm actually still teaching. On teaching. The subject that was trained in. So I was teaching chemistry. Able to do that still how That's so cool. How do you have been doing it for thirty? Years doing it all from memory. YEA, pretty? Much. Okay. All right and you got the lesson plans in Braille or whatever have you learned Braille I have some adaptable software Screen thing okay. Well, good and then after thirty five years off thing or two about it. Yeah. Yeah. That's promising. That's promising. Okay. Cool. Well, the reason I ask all these questions is on your right you can you you know you're doing good and how long ago was the accident? Seven years ago. Okay. How old are you? forty, seven you're over your and overcoming man you've been getting it I'm proud of you and your your impression. Thank you. So I, mean because that's a life altering to say the least and some people just get paralyzed and you just kept rolling man good for you. All right. So how much do you make teaching Eddie? Kind of. It's been as little as about. Nine thousand. And it's been as much as about thirteen. It's all depend on. You know how much I get person master? Okay. Yeah while say because between that and your disabilities or are you are you married kids family situation? Not just me. Okay. Well, I was GONNA say that's a relatively. Average income. That's the positive part is how to do the steps in disability is that people are doing it with this amount of income they're just working their way through it. So if you wanted to pause baby step forward to do baby step three B and go ahead and save up that down payment, you could for a short period of time just kind of accelerate that and actually get that quick win faster than if you were putting your money into that Roth Ira so you could do that as an option. Yeah. I agree I think you're getting there. Let me tell you what I'm hearing I'm hearing you got. Big Future ahead of you. And you've been through hell and so it might be harder for you to grasp that future but. I think I think you could do it I think you could I think you could do tutoring. Thank you. Could you might double your income If you push around and think about this a little bit you don't have to but you're just a survivor man I mean you've gotten after it. I'm so proud of you. So I would be continuing to think about ways you could do the teaching because you know your stuff like you said and anything you can do to get your income up, of course, accelerates all of these issues.

Oh, they pick you up from a parking lot. Well, I think that's processing center, basically for people who enter it. This is actually land episode is based on a real that Alanna episode is so accurate because then I was watching it.

"I hope it has enduring impact in a different way. Well, it certainly left liberals being interested in the courts will be fine, but I really hope this keeps people fired up about electoral politics like we can't rely on the supreme court to be the one arm of government that does are bidding whether liberal or conservative, you need vibrant electoral democracy. You need legislatures acting, and I really hope that at the state level at the local level, the city level and at the at the federal level that people are engaged about that issue and and and use those institutions to move forward. Because I think those are the institutions that were designed to respond to the popular will. The courts are very going to be very hard to move its acting in by voting and by being incredibly active citizens and pushing for for legislation that you want. That's gonna make. Biggest difference. The court is has become by bec- because the other two institutions of government, the other two arms of government have withered. So when are so so bad and how they carry out their business it, the court has become overly powerful into having Democrats pick recognize electoral politics matter and vote and vote and vote in vote. That seems to me, I hope is an outcome of this, although I think what you're saying it makes great sense. But the danger is that they ties to presidential election. We saw it with President Trump where people had all kinds of reservations about him, but said, well, he's going to name the springboard Justice now, name too, so that that is more important than any other possible issue insurance. The presidency answer, basically a job where you do one thing for certain voters, which I think it's your your point Dante democratic in terms of having a robust system with all of its component parts that respond to different speeds in different ways to the will of. I guess I just wanna add one. More dope for we leave behind the this particular narrative, which is just that it's Kevin confirm than Christine. Blocking Ford is going to have turned her life completely upside down. You know, from a lot from my sense of her today in a lot of ways like changed it revocable in a way that is not what she wanted all and it will be for not. I mean, that is not her fault. It is not her shame. It's the countries, but I, I'm gonna find that just really, really hard, but it's not for not me. I mean, she did her duty as a citizen. She did her duty as somebody who's who's victim and she will be a, she may not have wanted it, but it was, you know, sometimes responsibility falls on you and you have to act and she acted in the honorable right way. And she will be, I think, rightly praised certainly on the left for the next generation for having done that. And while that may not be the same satisfaction as having actually stock. Opt Kevin o. from becoming a Justice. If he's not stopped from becoming a Justice, it does not in any way negate or or or diminish what she did and she and nor to diminish the impact that this may have on people in the same way that Anita hill failed to stop the Clarence Thomas for being confirmed as the spring court Justice but changed America. And I think it's possible that Ford will change American ways that we can't measure yet and not in the way that she hoped to change it. But in some other way that that it's hard for us to know. But she moved to people. She was credible. She was important and she spoke truth to power, and that's all you can ask someone to do. Hope you're right and Anita hill did say the other day that she does not regret having come forward, and I hope that will be true for Blasi for it as well. I just feel like she is not a person who wanted this notoriety. She wanted to be a professional. She wanted to be she wanted to life. She had it sounds like she had a good life and now she is world famous for one terrible thing that happened her what she was fifteen, and it's going to be just really hard. I think maybe I'm over identifying with her, but I just really feel for her. So let's leave it. There were taping on Thursday evening. Looks like there's going to be a vote in the judiciary committee on Friday as as we tape. That's the plan..

"If that happens, do you guys think that that will be an electoral catastrophe for Republicans? Do you think this is a thing which would cause Democrats to come out and and be just absolutely outrageous turn out even more than they would or do you think as I think is possible that this this whole episode is going to really motivate a lot of Republicans to come out and vote who maybe weren't even planning to, regardless of whether he gets confirmed, I think even confirmed they will come out and vote or maybe it won't matter at all. I think he should firms. I think that re- that democratic women women in general, who we've been I heard from today who just broke into tears at line because of the way is connected to their own frustration in not being heard and listened to in various ways about their own sexual assaults or very close to it. I think that if this gets framed in a confirmation as Republicans not listening to women. Then this becomes a motivational motivation for the lose. If you believe politics is if people are animated by grievance, Republicans will have gotten what they wanted, which is the confirmation of of having and and a control of court. That won't be a reason to turn out, but, but he's confirmed those who didn't want to happen. We'll be we'll be angry and watch it. Now, Emily, what do you think will happen with the court? If Cavanaugh is on John Roberts is so concerned with the court's legitimacy and the the notion that Cavanaugh would be joining that court having pass through on the narrowest of margins in the most contentious. If ways with so much question about his own credibility, his truthfulness and the possibility he is actually a sex criminal. What will the court be like? It's so bizarre to me that someone who made that incredibly emotional reason tation. Well, then put on a black role. And you know March along as court Justice, but that's what will happen. I mean, we saw it happen with Clarence Thomas. Once you're in your chambers, people call you Mr Justice or whatever it is. People calls report justices. There will be complaints galore from critics of the conservative wing of the court when they make any five to four rulings, conservative versus liberals involving issues that relate to women and they will do it anyway because they will have the power to do it. That's what will happen. I can't believe that John Roberts is going to stay his hand in any significant way because you know now breath Cavanaugh has the same kind of, you know, cloud hanging over him that Clarence Thomas to join. You're really good on history on perspective. Do you feel like this cabinet episode regardless of how it turns out is going to be poisoned in the soil of American politics for generations to come. Or do you think it will be forgotten in a way that. These things you know that that once seemed Douglas Ginsburg wants him important a for just one seem important. And now no one cares aid for this was a kind of a special case because he turned out to have one, huge ethical issues. I think I think this plus Merrick, garland create this was Arlen plus trolls court creates on the liberal side kind of. Long term programmatic or in the legal community of the kind we've seen on the Republican side, you know, going back to the Warren court. I mean, if it's if you believe that Republicans have always cared more about the supreme court is voting issue and Democrats and have turned that into a systematic structural protein for trying to reverse the leftward move the port. I think that happens on the. I think that I think the same thing starts to happen more already happening, but but happens on the left. And I think because it has this gender aspect and this and it's not just gender, it's not just like women's issues. The conversations I've had here including now with my wife who was outed herself in her own here is experiencing with an assault. You cannot get any any hotter and to the core. Or of someone's identity and rage than this, and whether you personally experienced it for or come close to it. It's about the strongest feeling you can get get to. So I think it will have enduring of an enduring impact..

"Create IPE indelible, but not necessarily broad memories and then regular people in their memories. It just doesn't that may and the campus yet John to that end. I thought the most astonishing moment in Dr Ford's testimony was that description of the laughter the uproarious laughter between the two, that kind of thing, which would stick. It would just like remain in the memory was so strong because it you, you can just, you can just feel how she felt that moment in and that these this particular detail with stay with you and would be so hard to shake and so sticky in your brain. It was that that was the most powerful moment of the day for me. One of the things Deborah Ramirez said, which was that cavenaugh when he like pulled his pants down, exposed himself, laughed at her, which is, of course completely at odds with the image. He's tried to make paint himself as being this, you know, sensitive advocate of women. There's only one of the most motive for line really unless you'd think that Dr Ford has a long is a long game where she's just been waiting to bring him down. And this moment the play, which I think is preposterous only only he has a motive to lie about it. She does not really. She's not make any money, it's not gonna. It's ruined her life. It's an isolated or light. So that's one big issue. And the other thing that I thought was so telling about the afternoon is that actually the Republicans did not at all engage with Dr Blasi Ford's testimony they it was as though she hadn't even been there, they didn't press him on anything that g mentioned. They just allowed him the conversation in the afternoon from Republicans perspective. Just Kavanagh's on our protecting his honor. He. He was speaking righteously for himself and he'd been characters as needed by democratic plot. There was no sort of substantive engagement with the actual allegations that she made in her incredibly persuasive testimony to that effect. That seems that seems to me maybe because I'm totally wrong. But that seems obvious to me because if you gauge with her testimony as we've seen throughout the week, leading up to this gauge by a male set Republican Senator is very easily characterized as doubting whether this ever happens with women in general, what? What? What? What standing up for his character allows them to say she was telling I found her credible, but then shifts the nature of the question to his carry his. Characters has nation his being dragged through this process. I think if they engaged with with Dr ward too much, they risked running into for lack of a better phrase and the need a Hillbrow. Well, that's true. But of course, the character assassination is coming about because she made this accusation and so can't right. I mean, politically speaking what you said makes total sense. But logically the beginning, it doesn't make. Just dealing with the politics, not and I am not the logic. No. I mean this and. And this is why the lack of closing argument really hurts me, which is nice for the purposes of logic, someone to take everything we'd heard from both sides and tied together with a unified field theory so that this can be, you know, understood with the narrative arc based on the fact that we're. Uncovered today. I, at this point assume that he is going to be confirmed. I think it's very likely they will be a party line vote on Friday morning where they will vote for him out of committee and that it will go to the floor. And I think there will not be enough to stop Collins and Murkowski from voting for him. I just don't think they can withstand the pressure that's going to come from the base after Kavanagh's exceptionally forceful performance and the pressure that will come from Trump on this. If that is the case, Emily, you can disagree about whether you think it's going to happen. I refuse to give up on calms Murkowski. There is just like a betrayal of women that will be unfolding if they do that. I mean, maybe they can come up with them principled way to explain it, but I don't know what it could possibly be. And so I just can't. I can't accept that yet. Although I completely see why you think it's like..

"Yeah, and he was at Yale and all the drinking is totally mixed into that. Julie sweat neck. The third accusers come forward also missing. You know, the FBI investigation that did not happen that one would presumably want if this was really about finding the truth and about clearing your name. I mean, I think that was those were the questions that Cavanaugh just like danced around. It was not convincing about today, and then there's the missing Mark. Judge the the friend who would presumably back up cavenaugh, but it's so toxic because of his own drinking, which is really flagrantly on the record that he the Republicans can't let him into the room. It's only by leaving out all of those people and factors that we can narrow this down this choice. Character assassination this about character assassination that Lindsey Graham wanted to be upset. I just say one quick thing about judge that this occurred to me which is having made it sound like, well, just friend, but you know, wasn't it severally as best friend, but but. Dr forty, put them in the same room like she didn't. I mean, she obviously didn't make up one thing about testimony that was so powerful. Whatever happened. This is not who came in at the eleventh hour because she's a democratic operative. No one can create a detailed narrative that just making it up. Right? And so she put porting having on the same room like why pick those two people. I mean. Making that connection and connecting him to the guy who wrote the book about how drunk he rise, that that that isn't incredible kind of piece of information that kinda wasn't wrestled with by his response about judge in which make it all the more important to have had him there to speak for himself, right? And also the fact that that calendar, which which Cavanaugh was so indignant about an insistent about indicated there was on July first, a party at which judge and Cavanaugh, and the other people that that doctor named were had were at a party at a different place. And so there there's there's so much in her story that that speaks to truth or or or is or is kind of confirmed by other vague ancillary evidence. I mean, you know, we'll obviously never know, but but judge judges absence was extrordinary and and the way. I thought Democrats were very inefficient and ineffective at making big deal about his absence. And you know the Senate Ken force him to come testify, they chose not to because the majority wouldn't want it, but it's it's pretty amazing. The judge has been allowed to skate on this ridiculous statement that he made about the morning, David. I wonder what you think about this. I mean, I think the weakest part of Blasi Ford, not not what she presented, but just like in trying to judge this is that there isn't someone else who were members being at that party. Doesn't mean it didn't happen no reason that it would have been memorable for the other people. There was thirty six years ago, but we don't have the, you know, firsthand corroborating witness. And you know if there was like, if you're gonna try to in a principled way, say I don't think there's enough evidence here to vote against Cavanaugh. I think that's your most principles like helping hand, but didn't I assume you guys have done the same exercise. Is that I've done, which is to think back like, all right, what was I like it fifteen. I think of episodes when I was fifteen and you can think you can call to mind the things that were most amazing difficult or shocking, but almost everything else is just a mass, like it's a sort of sense memory of something that happened there. Something that happened there, but you don't. You couldn't with any accuracy CEO what happened on this date or with these people? It's only there a few very specific things that you could call to mind which were particularly traumatic or particularly exciting. And so the chances that anybody else would remember that party that event, like how anyone got there, what happened if Dr Ford never said anything about it is nil. No one would remember that. So it's not at all surprising that nobody remembers that I know about the way the brain science works, which Emily brought up, you know, a week ago, but then we had a doctor on the show explaining that, you know, when you have a moment of trauma..

"For us, didn't use that as an excuse for him. He's refused to admit that that could be a possibility. And so we're left with this picture of that. He's presented himself in which you know to me his veracity is just like it's just at odds with all these other pieces of information. Yeah, the it was very defensive in and riddle about the question of drinking, and it just seems to be clear from both his friends and also the yearbook page and and his friend judge that that he was obviously more than he's letting on. The second thing is the political attack. Bring up the Clintons I think let let your Republican questioners do all that you. I thought it went. You know, when he talked about his daughter praying for Dr Ford and he talked about what this had done, his reputation, his family. I thought that was the most emotionally powerful. Why get into all the partisan stuff. Let's let the politicians do that. They're gonna do it. Why do you? Why is that helpful to your brief. Especially because then it costs doubt on how you're possibly going to be fair and impartial judge when you get to the bench and you have liberal causes and plaintiffs than Democrats in front of you just but I think he was playing for his audience was two sets of people. One was the president who he did not want the president to yank his nomination. I think he was weak and and so he was very much playing to the president. And then I think he was playing to the men on that committee in a very canny way. I thought it was an incredibly effective performance for those two audiences for the men. He he and for Trump it was his indignation, his denial, his aggressiveness about it, his aggressiveness towards the questioning with something which which we know Trump response to in the Trump respects admires and that that kind of concede territory attitude is is very Trumpian in his very sympathetic to it. And in terms of the the. The sender's himselves. I think they also saw themselves in cabinet and saw the sense like, oh my God, I could be subject to this and look at. He's standing up for his honor in the way that I would stand up for my honor. I think they were the white male Republican senators were very, very strongly identifying with him in that is exactly why they took back. The questioning midway through is like they suddenly recognize I wanna be associated with this guy. I don't need to. I don't need to protect myself any more in the way I did in the morning, but I don't wanna be on record asking any questions about this. I don't want a computer Dr buzzy for like they suddenly they realize like, you know what this guy is going places I wanna be with him. I wanna get on the side of it, and it was the basis going to like it. I totally agree. And then of course the play is that you force doesn't constantly simmer Cousy and I guess Jeff flake if he's still in play you force there. Hands. You make them vote for you because the other forty eight centers plus President Trump are still behind you. That's the play and I was prized, but I think they're totally right about it. I think the play was most exactly articulated by Lindsey, Graham, you know, part of this when it's done is who gets to define the argument who do what the question is. It's going to be decided before the vote. And if you can define that territory, you know you frame the question you win and Lindsey, Graham basically said for any Republicans, thinking about voting against him will be vote for characters assignation. So it's trying to shift it from, do you believe Dr Ford to? Are you okay doing this to him and for cavenaugh sorry for Macau skin Collins. The extra power of that there is it doesn't matter for corker and flake. They're leaving, but base voters in their states are getting a cue from Graham and saying, this is the choice that the Senator is making. And so it's increasing the pain threshold for them from Republicans who see things the way Graham totally right about Lindsey, Graham reframing. And of course what it leaves out of the picture. We're all the people and elements that were missing today. So Deborah Ramirez wasn't there the second woman who accused him of sexual misconduct when she was?.
