James Comey and Truth in Government
"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his byline primary colors And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I
Does Lebron have the highest basketball IQ in the game?
"Lebron for all of his incredible towns. I think he has the highest basketball. I q that. I've ever seen you know when we talked about some bonus before it's it's the same kind of thing and i'll give you an example of what i mean. There are a few plate players. I've coached many my career that you can teach plays to and it will take you a number of repetitions or even a number of days until guys really catch what they're supposed to do whatever system or sequencing Date you're used there are there are very few guys. Lebron probably being the best of them that can see what it is you wanna do and not only after one time running through it know what he is responsible for but he knows every position and every option of every player on the floor and and i think that's really really unique. You know so if you if he's sitting down for wild as a played new put in different stuff all he has to do. Sit there look at one time. He's got it or if you wanna particular defensive sequencer tactic you know. It takes him literally seconds to to understand not only his place in the picture but the entire picture you know and that speaks volumes to how intelligible basketball player. He is

Get the lead out: Zambias toxic mine
"Don been doing into the lead comes in. The central zambian town of kabwe has been called the most toxic place on the planet. It was developed around a lead mine built by a british colonial firm in the early nineteen hundreds although the mine shut its doors in one thousand nine hundred four. it's toxic. Dust continues to plague the town. Some residents try to protect themselves like joy. Bouza who tells her young brothers not to play outside of just in before i went to now a class action lawsuit against anglo american south africa which was affiliated with the mind for fifty years is seeking compensation for more than one hundred thousand women and children. Wade tend to defend positions as. We don't believe that. Anglo american is responsible for the current situation. I obviously understand that. That doesn't help. The people of kabwe. And i realized that and of course we have every sympathy so they applaud whatever the outcome of the case. There will still be a need to deal with the lead that permeates the town's soil and it inhabitants bodies. The most atrocious cliche for any africa correspondent is to refer to replace as hot and dusty but in case the fact that cowboys hot and dusty really matters because it's the dust off the former lead mine. The has blown all of time john. Mcdermott is the economists. Chief africa respondent. He recently visited kabwe. Much of kabwe is a normal. Mid sized. african settee has a bustling market. And it's a hive of activity but there are about half a dozen townships that lie close to the former smelter and they in particular are kind of coated in this fine dust which contains the lead metal. And when i was there a few weeks ago. I went to see a man called. Assail timbo. hello good morning how you move you. Who was a minor for almost two decades and we sat in his front yard. What kind of tree is this smuggle underneath a mango tree while chickens were pecking around his feet and i heard her story of the mind. Gross today it will be became. I think they demo- plus mr tembo worked at the mine after it was nationalized in nine thousand nine hundred seventy until it closed in one thousand nine hundred four and he says he was never really told about the dangers of lead while he was there but that today continues to give him health problems. He says he's got bad eyesight sore head droopy limbs. He can't be sure but he suspects the all of those elements have something to do with the fact that worked at the lead. The hoi issue has come to everybody in this study after the miami has been and presumably if this dust is all around that mr tembo story isn't isn't unique. That's right anyone you speak to in cowboy has some knowledge of the risks of lead and more recently that wellness has grown especially when it comes to the dangers faced by children. Local ngos are hosting radio shows and running courses in schools to educate people. Someone please tell me about what is lead. Leave is a subset benefits as you. Live is very poisonous. Substance that finding the so. That's gonna alert of course. Potentially toxic metal can be poisonous really low levels in the bloodstream. And because children's bodies are smaller they're developing and because kids more likely inhale and ingest the toxic dust there at greater risk and their effects can be profound. We're talking about behavioral problems learning disabilities and ultimately low iq if you have prolonged exposure to the metal and what efforts have been made down the years to to protect the residents from from the the the mines lead. There'd been a few efforts a couple funded by the world bank including one that's going but environmental scientists and experts in this field are convinced that none of them have been or will be sufficient to fully decontaminate the town. I saw this. When i went to the house of a man called cornelius katiti. They went to kidneys. Closed this one at that point. And then they put some blocks so that their wits through this one he has a canal right on the back of his garden which was dredged in the two thousands by a world bank funded project but even today as a matter has grown into it. Every rainy season water builds up and the comes over the of canal into his garden adding to the toxic contents of yard. And that just symbolized for me. How while there's been these piecemeal efforts day in day out to the people in cowboy still face with the poisonous environs and about the court case that that is tackling this problem. Why why is it happening now. After all these years of of half hearted efforts lawyers have been looking at the case for the better part of two decades but they feel they finally got in the necessarily archive over research. Done to bring the case against anglo and the also feel that legal changes in south africa to do with the ease of making a class action suit mean that now is the time to try and seek redress for their clients. And what do you think will happen. The only thing. I know for sure is that the case is gonna take many years to play out the lawyers for the applicants need to first prove that the case can be heard in south africa. That's before it even gets to trial and if it were to get to trial there's no the anglo will vigorously contest the charges so i don't think there'll be a resolution anytime soon and in the meantime the residents of kabwe will will continue to inhale to live around all of this toxic dirt. Subtly that's the case in the absence of any clear plan to remediate the time people living in. Kobe are trying their best to protect themselves. But ultimately many residents are simply too poor to leave and others do not want to go because whatever its perils cowboys their home like cornelius katiti. But you hope that your children your grandchildren will be to play and safety some point. Yes john thank you very much for your time. Thank you jason.
Tua Tagovailoa vs. Belichick's Defense: A Challenge
"Get into the Dolphins. Now we have to start with to Greg. I watched him last week and I see a number of very good things from him, you know, the answer the anticipatory throws is great anticipation is accurate and he's really smart and you know football IQ is through the roof when you see him, he's diagnosing what the defense is doing and the first time around you might surprise him. It's very difficult to surprise in the second or third time around very smart guy doesn't have the strongest arm in the world, but he can move around in the pocket a little bit and he's got enough Armstrong. Had a downfield but I mostly pay attention to his accuracy his anticipation in his intelligence. I think that's what would separate too from some of the other younger quarterbacks that we've seen come into the league and so it's fascinating Greg this matchup. I remember we talked about the Justin Herbert matchup Belichick's record his resume against rookie quarterbacks or even just your quarterbacks first time in so we're going to have to who was very football Savvy and has a high football iQ going against Bill Belichick who of course has the Mind against rookie quarterbacks wage. What do you make of to his game in? What do you think the Patriots will try to do on Sunday to Rattle him. I'm looking at I thought you did a great job with your Scouting Report. I thought you know what I agreed on all those points, especially, you know, I think where he shows off to me is the football like you he he sometimes he will hang on to a play a little bit too long. I think that's probably a place. Where they've been working with him, he did that a couple of times against Kansas City, you know, but largely had a feel for what's going on. He knows how to get rid of the ball. I think Chan gailey's done a real nice job with him sort of slowly bringing him along and you know, yes, everybody's going to talk about Bill Belichick and his record against rookie quarterbacks, you know, but one thing you have to keep in my practice, you know, this is this is a rookie quarterback with Brian Flores, you know next to him who's so I assume Brian all week is showing him all Patriots film and say look, this is what they're going to do to you. This is this is what we would do to everybody. These are going to be the calls whatever you see don't trust your eyes before the snap. There's always going to be somebody dropping there's going to be they're going to be doing this song. I think that's going to be a huge asset for them. I think that Ted Karras at Center is going to be a huge asset for them cuz he knows how the Patriots, you know like to pressure cuz he's been here for so long. The Patriots know his weaknesses. Teddy's a pretty good pass protector. He struggles more in the Run game. But I do think you'll see the Patriots try to try to get him to move his feet side-to-side off a little bit slow. So I think you know targeting him with some t e stunts inside and things like that might generate some pressure. But yeah, I think I think that too is pretty good job to see if guys like DeVante Parker and get sick e who who, you know, we're beat up in the last game, you know, whether they'll be able to play because your talent talking about some really talented guys there. I mean God, I can't believe how far gesicki the tight end has come and I know Belichick basically called him a big wide receiver this week, which I think is accurate but he's damn good at what he does in a mash-up. Yeah and the one question and you know, we'll get into our picks and a little bit before we get this n'keal Harry thing you want to talk about and of course we still have the member question of the day on this pod. But you know the weapons right for Miami, we we talked about the weapons about the Patriots all the time. But when you look at the weapons of Miami, I think last week I saw something that too was down at one point in that game. He was down his top six receivers. So including Titan including tight end. So if you know if Grant is out if Parker is out if they're just you know off 60% if you know kasicki is out Myles Gaskin was on the covid-19 this last weekend, that's their guy who they've been running the football with what is it Ahmed salvano salvano, may I forget which way it goes his name, but he's the other running back on the roster. He's been dinged up. So this is a team if they're banged up. I don't know what they can do offensively. I mean, I like to a long shot, but the one thing that jumped out at me watching that Kansas City game and maybe it's just because Kansas City is so full of explosiveness and speed but the one thing that jumped out at me watching the Dolphins offense It's Not Dead. Dynamic like say they don't have explosion and DeVante Parker could be that guy at times but he's been banged up. He's got a hammy so I don't know if he's going to play but they lack if there's one thing they need to add immediately to that Miami offense to help to a is somebody who can be
The Science of Emotional Intelligence With Daniel Goleman
"My friend danny goldman wonderful. Dan you wrote. This obscure book called emotional intelligence. Twenty five years ago. I acted because it became a massive bestseller and let me ask a really basic question. What is emotional intelligence. Well you know when. I wrote emotional intelligence. Iq was like the big thing and it was really speaking to people's overemphasis on purely cognitive ability so much intelligence means being intelligent about your emotions and you know the way i look at it. There's four parts to that. There's being aware self-awareness. Very big part of it knowing what you're feeling y you're feeling it how it impacts you then managing your emotions using that self awareness to get over your upsets and you know encourage positive emotions motivations and so on and then empathy tuning into other people and what. They're feeling and to do that if to pick up. A lot of nonverbal cues people. Don't tell you in words they tell you. In other ways facial expression so and then putting that all together to manage relationships will to be effective with other people that might be the most visible part of emotional intelligence but interestingly so f- awareness the least visible part turns out to be foundational when you talk about self awareness within the e. q. Context is it the same thing as mindfulness. Why would say. Mindfulness is an application of self awareness. Mindfulness in mindfulness practice. You watch your mind very carefully. You don't let yourself get sucked in to this thought of that. Thought you don't judge it. You see it your knowledge it you let it go. That's definitely self awareness. But you don't have to be a mindfulness practitioner to be self aware. Anybody can do it anytime. What are you experiencing right now. What are you thinking about what you feeling. The answers to that are all so foreignness. It seems like it might be much easier to do. If you've got a mindfulness practice i would say that. A mindfulness practice is the equivalent of getting cardiovascular fit. You know the more you work out the more you ride your bike the more you do the treadmill the more you do whatever it is the easier it gets you you become more able to exercise for a long time and the same thing with exercising your mind. Which is what mindfulness is. It's a metal workout and the workout. Is you make a deal with yourself. That you're gonna watch thoughts and your feelings and not judge them and let them come and go and when you get distracted and you get caught up in a thought and you notice you're caught up you bring it back to that mindful stance that bring it back. I think is the equivalent of the you know lifting await in gym every time you lift weight. That muscle gets a little stronger. And i think every time you bring your mind back the brain circuits for being able to observe what's going on. Get a little stronger. It says your concentration and you know. I just finished book with my friend. And i think you know to richard davidson the neuroscientist at wisconsin where we looked at all the most recent best studies of meditation and we found that beginners become more calm and they're more able to focus and interestingly from a brain point of view. Both of those things use the same circuitry
How different hospitals battle the pandemic to save lives
"Thanksgiving holiday arrives during an escalating calamity. More than one million people are testing positive for Corona virus every week. Now that is a high enough number that there is a good chance that some of your family friends or co workers. Among them. It's certainly been true for me these last several weeks if you want to identify and especially hard hit state, just throw a dart at a map because the odds are that any state you hit will qualify. This morning we visit three. Sebastian Martinez Valdivia is a K B A. And Missouri Blake farmer is with WPL and in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bram Sable Smith. Is with Wisconsin public radio. Welcome to all of you. Good morning. Thank you. Morning, and Bram. How widespread is this surge in Wisconsin, where you are? It's quite widespread, you know, by September, public health experts were really sounding the alarm about the rise. In cases we're seeing in the state initially were seen surges and cities where the university started located, but very quickly. The virus is rampant in communities. All over Wisconsin. As you know, Steve cases they're just the beginning of a covert search. So our hospital started filling up quickly. And maybe most concerned involves our death. Worried. We reported the record 104 deaths yesterday. We're losing about 52 people every day, on average and over 3000 people. Wisconsin have died of covered 19 so far, and I should also note we are seeing a slight downturn. Our cases are slightly our cases are dropping ever so slightly, But we're still very much at the top of the mountain and Steve the death rates very similar here in Tennessee. But cases are still climbing often more than 4000 Day. And As we found throughout this pandemic destined to lag those big spikes in new cases by a couple of weeks, So Tennessee's bracing for what could be to come because so far they're just has no sign existing of cases, letting up. Blake, over here in neighboring Missouri were in a similar ballpark in terms of new cases on deaths. But the really troubling trend has been in hospitalizations, which are high and continuing to rise on. Hospitals are really struggling with capacity and a lot of parts of the state. Well, let's talk a little bit more about hospitals or doing in Missouri, then Yeah, well, one of the big problems is a lot of the smaller rural hospitals that traditionally transfer patients toe urban and metro areas for intensive care are really struggling to find beds because those larger hospitals are already full. S O. For example, Cocks Health, which is in Springfield, the third biggest city here in Missouri, has expanded its hospital capacity multiple times over the past nine months, but it's still had to turn people away. Steve Edwards is the CEO there. So we will have added 147 bed capacity, which is probably bigger than the Average hospital state, Missouri, he says the hospital keeps hitting what it would have considered a worst case scenario every couple of weeks. But adding rooms isn't really the half of it the biggest challenge, according to Edward to staffing, so training staff to care for covert patients, and then the draining work of actually caring for them. So that's the crisis in Missouri, Bram Sable Smith, Let's go back to Wisconsin Howard doctors trying to keep up where you are. You know, October the state we converted our state fairgrounds into what's called an alternative care facility to handle the excess capacity. We have so about 89% of the hospital beds available in the entire state for being occupied right now, in some regions, that's higher. At the alternative care facility. There's only nine patients right now, though. That's in part because it's voluntary to go there. It's also because it's where patients will go to recover kind of after they've cleared a hurdle in their covert treatment. The idea behind that is To free up resource is inside the hospitals to treat on influx of patients. Researchers like ICU beds that are in very short supply here and brand that the corps of Engineers build alternative care sites here in Tennessee is well, but increasingly, there's a concern about having the staff to open them. And a big reason for that is that so many nurses and doctors air out themselves with Kovar 19 or because they have to quarantine Well, Blake. What are hospitals in Tennessee, saying about that? Well, they're really starting to sound the alarm. In a way we haven't heard for a long time. Hospital administrators have wanted to make sure people knew that they would be able to handle the usual patients along with covert, and that's just less. So now. Dr Katrina Green works in an HCIA emergency room here in Nashville. We're worried about what the delays and care will mean for our patients, and I am personally terrified in my hospital. Being full could result in someone dying in the waiting room. The situation has become particularly severe in parts of Texas as well like El Paso and love IQ. For now that they're able to transport covert patients to other parts of the state. But there's going to be a time likely when those hospitals air capacity to You know, I spent some time last week and one of the five covert units at the University Hospital here in Madison, Wisconsin, where I live. I spoke to Mary Lowe. She's a nursing assistant in the unit. She's been there since the pandemic began. This has been going on for a long time. And right now it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. Even though there will be a time it doesn't necessarily feel like that right now. You know that unit as 28 beds and they've been consistently full and she says, it's it's exhausting and remember, the whole reason for shutdowns early on, was to prevent hospitals from being overrun will now in a lot of these states like ours, Those restrictions are long gone, and hospitals are now nearing the edge of that cliff. But political leaders are really finding it hard to go backward after lifting restrictions, months, Okay, granted, that's granted. That's true. But suggestion haven't some political leaders at least faced pressure to approve more safety measures. Yeah, There's definitely been pressure here in Missouri. The State Hospital Association actually sent a letter last week to a Republican governor Mike Parson, urging him to kind of issue one of those statewide mass mandate, saying the Wolf is at the door. But like a lot of Republican governors, he's rejected that call just to the north of us, though. In Iowa, the story's a little different. So Governor Kim Reynolds, there, also a Republican, was initially against the mask mandate, and she even said that city's couldn't issue their own mandates back in the summer, But she recently reversed course. I would have seen one of the biggest surges in cases and hospitalizations in the country per capita. I will has roughly half the population of misery, but it's almost in the same ballpark in terms of new cases. S O earlier this month, Reynolds did end up issuing a statewide mass mandate as well as some restrictions on public and private gatherings, with exceptions for some businesses and religious services.
Retailers get creative to reinvent holiday shopping amid COVID-19 pandemic
"We begin today's program with the retail industry because black Friday it believe or not, it's right around the corner and for more, let's bring in Bloomberg intelligence consumer analyst William Doyle. Always a pleasure to talk to you pulling him. You always said you're the one who always goes out to the Friday morning after Thanksgiving and stands in the malls and kind of takes the pulse of consumers out there. How is Black Friday with this the first black Friday of the pandemic? How are things gonna look different? Yes, the first and I really hope the last It's going to be very different. You know, people are still very hesitant to go to stores, Retailers are shifting their promotions online. Typical doorbuster deals that you would see. You know, hundreds of people line up for are not going to be there anymore because the story's can't allow as much traffic into them. So this year, and I'll be probably roaming parking lots and maybe going into the stories depending on how the virus looks and then really checking online. I mean, we've seen retailers promote black Friday deals much earlier this year, in fact, even phasing them out over multiple days to get consumers interested in new promotions on a day to day basis. It was a lot of people out of work. I wonder if There's just gonna be the spending power there on the part of the American consumer. Yet the American consumer we think still has the appetite to spend. What we're really seeing is spending shifts. So if you think about last year on Divan the years before we had seen with people had gone away from buying gifts that you can wrap in a box to experiences so whether it was a restaurant gift check or whether the spa package or whether it was A travel package. It was more based on experiences this here with all that being limited and really something that you know people are shying away from its going to focus back on gifts. And that's a positive for the retailers that I cover the shift online. Remind everybody it's ah, in terms of the margins for the retailers. It's tougher because what you're gonna pay for shipping, right? Yeah, you do. I mean, Yeah, You're absolutely right. Shipping costs are up, and not only is it just because of the higher penetration that we're going to see across the board but also carry a rate has been rising and there are surcharges given the high in demand of expected over holiday. That's that, though for those retailers have brick and mortar locations. They've done a fantastic job at rolling out curbside pick up this year, and we think that can help alleviate some of those shipping costs. Not all but definitely some and the other thing I say about margins you know, going into the holiday season is inventory. What we've heard from the retailers over the past week is inventory is very lean across the retail landscape. So if anything, we think merchandise margins will be better and sales. You know, retailers may be giving up some sales because they won't be able to treat into the demand. If demand does accelerate, uncertain products or categories, Okay, lean inventory, because was it a supply chain thing? Well, these just stop in ordering as much all years since the start of the pandemic in March, when they slashed orders. As much as 50% or more. They've been slow to pick up that piece. Given the uncertainty around dependent IQ, so inventories are relatively low. What did we learn so far from the earnings that we did get? We learned that sales, you know online continue to remain strong up double digits. We learned that story. Sales are still weak but are improving. Retailers have crushed black Friday earlier, so some of them like Macy's had said that they had seen Holiday, a gift purchases moving in talked over, which helped three Q at the expensive for Q. We've also learned that it's going to be very uncertain Holiday period. You know, Black Friday is this week and retailers while they're pushing for our mind fills it won't be like ever before.

California Voters Pass Prop 22, Exempting Uber, Lyft From Reclassifying Drivers
"When zoom in now on the most expensive ballot measure in California history, and that's prop 22. It overwhelmingly passed here in California with 58% of the voters in favor of keeping ride share drivers labeled as independent contractors. And this proposition sought to exempt companies like Lift uber and Gord Ash from a state law that would have forced them to pay for the drivers healthcare their unemployment insurance. Other benefits basically treat them like regular workers. My guy's IQ is here. Now. He's the New York Times Tech reporter and author of the book, Super Pump. The Battle for the Battle for Uber. Welcome Back, Mike. Hey, Thanks for having me great. Tohave. You okay? So what do you make of this? They spent a ton of money to get this carve out from 85. It appeared to win. What does this mean that I'm I think it's it's pretty clear that, you know, spending a ton of money in a election on a really huge issue. Ballot measure seems to work, You know, I mean, as you alluded to in the intro, this is one of the most, if not the most expensive sort of campaign into passing. Ah, proposition in California's history. Uber lift and Gord Ash had earmarked. You know, upwards of $200 million on, you know this sort of marketing blitz, essentially positioning. Prop 22 as a way to support drivers when, in fact, it's really, really print basically really supportive of uber's existing business model where you keep them sort of contractors, So I think there are a number of things that went into it, including how the proposition was crafted what the language looked like. And what the sort of campaign male around it. Look, look right. So voters were may be confused by the messaging, basically saying that this would protect drivers. What did drivers want? Do we know? Yeah, And I mean, that's a fair sort of caveat. I don't think it was unilaterally that that people think that drivers should be employees necessarily. I do think it's actually pretty split. There are a number of of drivers who do believe that being considered a full time employee is the right thing for the amount of time they spent driving on the APP on DH. That's a strong Ah, it's a smaller but strong contingent of people. And then what Uber likes to say a lot. And really a lot of these companies is the vast majority of the people who were driving on the platforms are very part time just sort of do it on their off time. And this would be sort of unfair for them if they had to reclassify, so I think it's still mixed. But you it is probably fair to say that there are a lot of people who don't do it. Super super hardcore legs. Um, like the other contingent of people who are very vocal for those, And does this do anything to the larger law? 85 does it, weaken it in any other way? Sure. Well, I think there's a few things one. This is a carve out for thes particular good companies, But I do think it's sort of sets the groundwork for if there is a later challenge if there's potential reform around 85 in general, you know, especially if this is sort of proving Teo to people that they don't you know that this sort of classification isn't wanted. I do think that The other point I'd make is that away this built this proposition was designed. It's very hard to toe roll it back. I think you need a much larger degree of consensus to roll back than you otherwise would normally and that was very intentional. So it seems like the gig Cos they're pretty safe, at least for the future. Right, And they can use this in other states, right? They can point to this as ah, warning to other states. Yeah, 100 per cent. I think that the California has been the sort of harbinger of things to come. And you know a lot of the folks that the companies were basically saying, we need to nail this down here, so it's not used as a blueprint for the rest of the country. And conversely, that's what they're there seeming to do right now, basically. Like Isaac Newyorktimes Tech reporter and author of the book Super Pumped The Battle for Uber Mike. Thank you. Hey, thanks for having me again.
Takeaways from the last presidential debate of 2020
"See Red states and blue states. What I see is American United States. Look, nobody knew what this thing was. Nobody knew where it was coming from what it was. We've learned a lot. The final presidential debate behind us now, about a week and a half away from the election of dozen days, really, or less. National Journal editor in Chief Jeff to four is with US. Live on Skype, Jeff. One thing we can say right out of the box. One does not come away from this exchange. With that throbbing headache. It was civil. You could follow the subject matter at least did that help either candidate, particularly that the temperature was far lower tonight? I think it still felt like like a bit of a draw to me. Just a lower temperature draw the last time you're right. I think if you if you beamed in here from 1992, it still would have seemed recognizable as a presidential debate. Starting even with the first segment they had on Corona virus strategy. They had some some back and forth, but it was pretty civil. We can list off the topics they discussed. Corona virus, immigration, health foreign policy. Our race with the last one, Can you even? Ah, Can you even remember what they discussed? And in what order? I'm not sure I can, and we talked about it for five minutes on air. What exchange? Did you find? Most interesting. Well, I I thought that the initial exchange on Corona virus really encapsulated What the what The knight was, If that's all you watched, you probably came out with a good sense of things. Trump said again, he said, this dozens of times it's going to go away. We're turning the corner. And he's saying this. As this week cases, air spiking and deaths are spiking again, just about everywhere. So it's just does not comport with the reality on the ground right now. The other moment that I think people are really going to seize on is when things turned to immigration and race, Trump Really held it together until then, for about an hour, And then, about an hour in they went to immigration. He again referred to murderers and rapists coming across the border from Mexico. And then he said, the only immigrants who show up for their hearings of the ones with quote really low IQ's So it was. It was a cringe inducing moment. And then on top of that they went to race, and he tried to say yet again that he's been the best president for Black Americans. Since maybe since Abraham Lincoln, which is Did overheated rhetoric to say the least. I'm not equivocating here. Anything that you've just said to now, Let's find out what Joe Biden did wrong. But I did notice, some stumbling, some stammering from Biden. That is an issue with him at debates. What were some of his weaker moments? It is. I mean, Trump wasn't there to interrupt him, But he interrupted himself more than more than a few times hey, tends to get caught up in his words loses his train of thought a little bit, especially when it came back to bite him, especially when he was trying to explain his health care plan. He did very, very well going at Trump about Trump's lack of a plan. But then, when he was called on to explain his own plan, it was it was hard to follow. Even for anybody who's been in that issue, much less for for a voter in their living room. Who's just coming to this issue right now? And what about the issue of Hunter Biden this laptop? We are trying to emphasize to callers to our newsroom that this New York Post story is full of red flags. It's It doesn't hold water, and until we get some more information, it's difficult to go with that laptop. For Biden story. That being said, Is that still a weak point for Joe Biden in some way. I sort of thought that exchange was was also a draw, and I think people probably voters. I think we're well served by the fact that they didn't spend that much time on it. And they didn't get a chance to really get deep in and litigate all the nitty gritty parts of this story because it's raise you say it's really hard to litigate right now. Biden, generally speaking didn't take the bait. He just would say. That's not true. Everything you're saying is not true. I've never accepted a dime from from foreign governments. He didn't really get into the into the sense ofthe weather. The laptop is Israel Whether the emails are authentic what his son was doing. He's just trying to keep T keep the focus on his own behavior, and whether or not he accepted money from foreign governments, and that was probably the smart thing to do to give it the least amount of oxygen possible. We'll talk again soon, Jeff, Thank you so much. You better take care that

Wife of Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor called racist slur at grocery store
"The wife of Pennsylvania's lieutenant governors of state police have spoken with the woman who used a racial slur when she confronted her at a grocery store. Giselle Federman says the woman appeared to recognise ER and began harassing her early yesterday afternoon at a store in your home and Brad IQ in western P. A. He says the woman directed a racial epithet racial epithet at her repeatedly and followed her after Federman retreated to her car in the parking lot. Fetterman was born in Brazil and identifies as Latina. She's normally accompanied by a state trooper went out in public for security, but Yesterday she was not while making a quick grocery run governor, Wolf says. In part, the ethnic intimidation and racist speech spewed out the second lady of Pennsylvania is shameful and unacceptable.
Colorado’s COVID-19 hospitalizations reach highest level since July
"Of people hospitalized with covert 19 in Colorado is now at its highest level since July. That follows the pattern of rising case numbers over the last four weeks. And is in line with what we're seeing around the country. On top of that. The CDC has revised its guidelines to acknowledge possible airborne transmission in indoor spaces, and the entire country is keeping a watch, of course on President Trump's Koven 19 battle. Let's get into it with Denver Health Infectious disease specialist Dr Connie Price on her live line. Good to have you again. Hello. Thanks for having me. So tell us your concern level. Of course, it's going to be 80 degrees all week long seventies over the weekend, But soon, you know, winter is right around the corner. What's your concern level about when we spend more time inside because of the cold weather outside. Well, we certainly have to pay more attention to the indoor environment the size of the room. The number of people at how well ventilated it is, it makes the risk of transmission higher. As says. Now the CDC and their revised guidelines on indoor space is impossible. Airborne transmission. Isn't that something we knew months ago. And why did the guidelines keep changing? I think it's always been clear that it's some form of respiratory transmission at some form of droplets, and whether it's a large droplet or a small droplets that remains offended in the air. Any large droplet has the potential to be broken down into the small, tiny droplets. So yes, I think we've always known about that potential. Ah, no, I think they're just highlighting some data around what we already think We knew in the beginning ofthe this anyway, Does it feel to you like Colorado zero Being the health protocols may be better than other states are with the masks and and Washington social distancing. Well, I think we are. We were one of the earliest states to be hit with coded 19, and we were able to get it into control well relatively quickly, and we've been able to keep our rates down to the point where we have Not overwhelmed our health care system. So I'm really proud of how we've done. But what are you seeing right now? An uptick over the past month or so. And And why do you think that is? Always been an up tick in the new diagnosis of cases in the outpatient setting, and just recently over the last week or so, we have seen that starting to hit the hospital now, not anywhere near what we were seeing at the peak of this At the peak of this, we had over 800 almost 900 Kate hospitalized cases in Colorado. Just put that in perspective. We're just over 200. Now. What's your feeling about testing in Colorado? Is it where it needs to be? And if not, when's it going to ramp up? Well, a supply chain has opened up quite a lot. It's still not perfect. I think all of us would test a lot more liberally. If we knew we had unlimited supplies coming in at any time, so That's no a little bit of a barrier but is way better. And it wasjust beginning with this doctor. We've seen what's happening in New York is school shut down in classrooms Go back online. What's Colorado, seeing as Faras School age infections of Corona virus go What we are seeing most of our infections in the younger kind of 20 year old age cohort. So the college age Ah, patients are coming in. But you know, younger school younger school age kids, particularly, you know, kindergarten first grade, really very few infections relative to what we see in adults. Well, that's positive news. But would you say that when you see this uptick over the last month or two that it's in all age groups? Well, it has trickled into other age groups, but still far and away. The most frequently diagnosed age cohort is in roughly the 20 year old 20 to 30 year old 20 to 40 year old age card. And before we run, What are the keys? Do you think to Colorado getting this pandemic under more controlled before there's a vaccine available? I think he's doing more of what we're doing. Continue our social distancing where math when, at least within 6 ft of others and in any indoor space. And, you know, just continue using good common sense. Um and I think we can get through this and given flu season's coming up. Make sure to get your flu vaccine because we don't wanna have a twin dem IQ with both flew and co bed going into the fall. Speaking of that, I don't know if you've seen flu cases yet, but certainly the smoke in the air are these things, mimicking the same symptoms that people would have from Kodai teen. And is that a probably Is that problematic for you? We haven't seen a lot of that, at least in our acute care settings with smoke. It may be more of an issue closer to the wild fires, but I think it's a little bit different. More of an irritated cough. I think with a bit of flu you do get you feel much sicker. You know you muscle aches and fatigue, which maybe you wouldn't get with the wildfires. Yeah, more symptomatic to the flu. It sounds like

But we have a much longer history of removing cubes. Some ancient Egyptian women would remove their piquet with a copper up and wealthy Roman women even had slaves who'd pluck out PK's. In both instances, cubes were considered uncivilized or an claims and turns out for a lot of us. That opinion hasn't changed much. I think a lot of perceiving it as unclean. This is Dr Talaat ripple.

How to Conduct the Right Sales Conversation
"Tip comes from Scott Roy. Scott is the CEO of Whitman Roy partner. He spent his lifetime building and running large direct sales organizations and co-founded a billion-dollar Nationwide Insurance Company in the US. He's also the co-author of the brand new book decision intelligence selling. Hi my tip for you today is how to create both concern and urgency in your customer to act and to buy from you. If you're a salvage sales person, you've already figured out that you should initiate your sales conversations by focusing on the problems the customer has and not by starting with your Solutions good sales people know this month, but still I see so many of them fail to do it or to do it. Well, so today, I want to cover the key skills around problem definition that drive the pace and the certainty of the sale this month. Ability transforms good sales people into great ones. Generally, there are for sales behaviors. I observed in sales people starting with the least effective in building from there to what I would call a standard the first kind of sales person assumes that they know the problems faced by the customer because they've had some training and their experience with other customers who are in a similar situation. They tend also to assume that the customer is aware of their own problems. And so this salesperson presents the product or service quite quickly and hopes, they spark the customers interest and then that's for the close. It's the most ineffective form of person-to-person selling the second kind of sales person listens to the customers challenges, but only long enough to hear the problem. They can solve then the dive into pitching their solution in trying to persuade the customer to buy this approach has a better chance for connecting the solution to a problem actually felt by the customer, but the check Bizarre that the sale is less certain the customer is going to have more doubts and will take longer than you want because the customer isn't really experiencing a deeper concern or an urgency to buy off. Now the Third Kind of salesperson is actually getting pretty good. They show genuine concern and empathy for the customer and they're actually expressing curiosity in their situation. They own know that listening deeply to the customers problems is primarily for the customers benefit not theirs and it helps the customer to build up their concern about the impact these problems have on them by lingering longer during the problem definition of the sales process. They create more engaged buyers who are attracted by the experience that you're providing them and because of this you'll close more sales, but actually there's a fourth level of selling that is reserved for the truly great ones. They do everything that the third level seller does plus one more thing off. They take the time to help the customer estimate the cost of the problems they have if they are not addressed and solved so they don't tell the customer the cost of their problems. They actually lead them through a brief back-of-the-envelope calculation and come up with an annual or multi-year cost of doing nothing about the problem. Then they asked based on the problems. We've defined a cost you've estimated. Is this a problem worth solving if the number is big enough the customer will proceed with urgency to find a solution and if it's a fit they'll likely by month. So in summary take the time to really listen to your customer Dig deeply into the problems. They have estimate the cost of the problem and ask the critical question. Is this problem serious enough and costly enough that you want to solve it. And if it's a yes then present Your solution to fit the well-defined problem. Now what have led you through today as a brief overview. You have the first two steps of what it's called decision intelligence selling or DQ sales for short just like IQ and EQ are about intellectual and emotional intelligence DQ selling is all about leading buyers through a set of Common Sense steps that help them make Intelligent Decisions. Now, they won't know how to do this. You must lead them through the process step-by-step DQ sellers are committed to help customers make the best possible decision by building their decision intelligence. They do this other customers by exploring for subjects thoroughly. And in this order first, it's the problem second. It's the cost of the problem if it goes unsolved third month. It's the solution to the problem and forth It's the value of the solution you're bringing this framework can be applied to short cycle one call sales all the way up to wage. Complex multi-million deals that require many conversations over a long period of time, but always the four major steps must be covered to greatly increase the customers competition to buy and your chances of making the sale.

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

I certainly not gonna ask that's for sure so we've talked about this before and and stanford's ranked as c. unranked after their different faked. I'll wash them northwestern. I don't believe that they they they didn't look great. They didn't legrand caja castillo orange orange county quarterback. Yeah it goes stanford think he's in concussion protocol steel so he may or may not play but stanford's fake. I mean there are pretty good team. They're they're an alarmed at high coached. They get you to bully ball and beat you up at the line of scrimmage and try to power you to death yeah. There's no question about it but i believe that we're we have a better had a football team than them. This year i hope so just from the first games and watching them versus us. I feel like we do have a better team than but all of a sudden you've got a freshman quarterback who's played a half of football and david shaw is going to know what to do to make life difficult on him. Yeah no it it. It could be difficult oh but they praised this yankee. There's a lot of people that think slow slow slow could onslow is is the real deal now. He impressed me with the throat tyler yvonne down the right sideline going into the end zone. <hes> you know one big throw that i liked other than that.

We can just kick the you-know-what out of and get to work after that and this week at two really good games. You've got number one clemson hosting a and who's number twelve coming into this thing jimbo fisher has got am back on the right track but clemson is cranked up as because alabama's alabama my nick saban has been there in fact the matter is davos handed it to nick a couple of times in the last couple of years they go into death valley in an of sets clemson within an ems for real but i don't foresee death values i mean i don't know if either one of you've ever been there but it's crazy on game day since in the middle of nowhere in the middle like it's just one road.

"i._q" Discussed on Inquiring Minds
"Last episode featured featured an interview with david epstein one of my favorite writers talking about what am i favored things which is essentially what happens when we train and how can we train most optimally his thesis in his book range. Why generalists triumph was that we kind of underrate a general knowledge abroad intelligence or broad rod training and we specialize too early this week's guest is looking at much the same topic but from a different perspective he's david robson and he wrote a book called the intelligence agents trap why smart people make dumb mistakes. Even though i recorded these two interviews relatively far apart in time i thought it would be important to actually play them back to back because we cover some of the same issues but from two very different perspectives when we develop expertise we tend to think that we know what we're talking about and often we you do but that also makes us more susceptible to certain kinds of biopsies and that's why we can make some pretty dumb mistakes. David robson welcome to enquiring minds absolutely really my pleasure. Thank you so one of the things i loved about your book. Is it kind of turns over a kind of a theme that we see now in media on its head so a lot of people talk about the fact that lisa in america and maybe even here in britain. I should tell our listeners that we are currently recording this interview in london. There is an anti electoral anti intellectualism right. There are people who you really are pushing back against this idea that there are elite authorities and we should listen to them here. You are telling us that people who are intelligent can be either own worst enemies that they're in some ways. They become trapped by their intelligence so i wanna start with asking you how you define intelligence. What is it that you use ooh to decide whether a person is smart or not. The definition of intelligence that i'm using is really the definition. Nothing most psychologists would agree on and that's the the kind of skills that are measured by i._q. Tests which i think we can agree not perfect measures of someone's total intellectual capacity but what they are meant to measure is this kinda underlying brain power or is known as the g factor because it's a general intelligence that is meant to underlie a lot of problem solving so on an i._q. Test for example well. You might have a test of your vocabulary. Your non verbal reasoning mathematical abilities on all of those do tend to correlate some people are better at some skills the numbers but overall if you're better at verbal reasoning you're also bit better at spatial reasoning to fought to be geeta some anatomical differences. This is in the brain so for example people hierarchies have more efficient neural networks that can process information a little bit more rapidly and if if i was going to define intelligence and just a single sentence that's really how i would define it as the ability to process complex information and pink in an abstract way away but as i also described in the book we can apply that brainpower wrongly so it can actually make you more stupid in some circumstances yeah so that that's really fascinating to me me and also i just want to talk a little bit though about this notion that as a college we've searched for the g factor you know there there have been in decades of work trying to find what is this core thing. Is it processing speed. Is that as you mentioned the efficiency of neural networks that in every decade as we get more tools to measure the the brain you know we find a new way of kind of redefining it but it's never been so satisfactory that we've been able to say for example test one hundred children and accurately predict which ones are going to be the most successful in society. I mean there's been some efforts to that. We can talk a little bit about some of the things that you talked about your book but there are also approaches approaches that psychologists have taken <hes> some of which have actually been over interpreted in the media that intelligence really should be divided up into different categories so oh gardener's multiple intelligence is model for example is a big one <hes> and we we can talk about the pros and cons of that but you also mentioned one model that i think is actually often overlooked by the media that is actually very powerful and that's bob sternberg so let's talk a little bit about how he would define intelligence and why that might be <hes> important to do so i would say is quite useful really to look obsta books <hes> very successful intelligences this is he calls a compared to the theory of multiple intelligences which some people the critics have just said was a little bit too broad say the multiple intelligences include things like <hes> you'll musical ability or artistic ability i think in one of the later versions that includes kind of how how good you are kind of understanding nature sharon the different kinds of plants around you and some psychologists built. Maybe you're not you're broadening it so to such an extent it becomes almost meaningless whereas like about bob stomachs idea is that he he referred constraints definition of multiple intelligences to free types of intelligence which seemed to cover all kinds of situations said there's analytical intelligence which is essentially what we've just discussed the kind of intelligence that's measured by i._q.'s but then there's also practical intelligence and you might think of this as being a little bit like commonsense. I actually thing that it's a bit more sophisticated than that really looks at this idea. Sometimes people some people just better picking up the kind of implicit rules of the environment around them and this is known as tacit knowledge so presumption workplace you could have someone who's got a great condemning track record but maybe they're just not very good kind of working out how to get the most out of their team members or how to carry out a plan how to to overcome challenges and that's really what this is getting practical intelligence and then finally there's also creative intelligence and this isn't looking at artistic expression or whether you're a good painter but this mov about how you can think flexibly and solve problems in kind of <hes> <hes> using more of a left field kind of way of thinking so for example one important aspect of that is this idea of counterfactual thinking said that's trying intake kind of imagine what if so for example if you're looking at the american elections it might be a useful exercise to undo what what would have happened. If hillary clinton john had won the election and doing comparison you might also understand more about trump and the kind of situations he's an now that really isn't tested by i standard measures of intelligence and it's not really something that we often ask students to to say <hes> history exams at school but actually late that is really important way of thinking and rope it steinberg has found that these free different types of intelligence the practical creative and analytical don't correlate very extremely with each other but when you do measure those together they can predict someone's academic success and their success in the workplace much better than if you just look at the analytical intelligence or i._q. Yeah that's so interesting to me because i i agree that i think in most academic settings and even in many workplace settings we do focus on the analytical and when someone scores high on or is you know highly analytically intelligent problems that come up like that would require more practical michael wisdom or more creative intelligence tend to be attributed to the situation so oh my co workers are too stupid. I can't get along with them not like i'm not clever an opt opt in practical ways to figure out how to motivate them in the right way and so like one example that you gave him the book that i've thought about with me as a as a mom of two children <hes> was this description of this teacher. Who had you know these kids in a playground. Who are you know or or in a classroom who were misbehaving and she gave them a whole bunch of different. She redirected their behavior rather than just asking them to be good so tell us a little bit about that. Yeah absolutely i'm set that was actually my friend friend emma classroom a few times she really had it running like a well-oiled machine because she just knew how to motivate these kids of all of these games james unlike making light when they tied up the classroom she made it this kind of competition where she was timing how quickly they could do it and it just brought out there kind of competitive instinct so <hes> <hes> amazingly well behaved when she was in charge. I'm then when i tried to take over all of those that kind of practical intelligence and they were running riot and i'm sure like if i had trained as a teacher i might have improved a little bit on those but still have this strong suspicion. Especially in the light. I took appropriate starbucks work. The my practical intelligence just isn't as high as amazon. I just find it a bit harder to kind of notice and to pick up on those implicit roles of the environment that could help me to succeed in that kind of situation yeah any one of the points you make in your book. Is that the sort of the higher. You are in the analytical side the less humble bowl you might be in some of these other ways. We like to think that you know the more you know the more you don't know and that's true i think when it comes to the subject matter at hand but it often doesn't translate two things that you might think are really not that difficult like you know making sure that kids in the classroom are well behaved sounds like a pretty simple task even though you know it can can be very complicated and by bringing in all of this practical wisdom and even creative intelligence you know thinking about saying like let's pretend we're on a spaceship and you know what would you do if this was a spaceship ship. Where would you put the pens in that kind of thing so they don't float away. That's like really much more creative than can you just put the pens away and i'm going to get angrier and angrier because he won't do it. You know and so yeah we think that that that that if we're if we are have high analytical intelligence that really should translate and so we don't see ourselves as as failing because we are low and practical intelligence but rather for some other reason yeah i absolutely agree with that and i feel like this is a real problem with our the kind of culture that we have just assumed that analytical intelligence kind of serves all problem solving which is very much the definition nation of general intelligence but that has even if you're not a psychologist i feel like that's just been absorbed in our education system in the workplace so we just ashamed someone is smart they they will be good at all of those other things and like you said we blame it on the environment rather than looking within ourselves some what we could maybe do to improve to improve our practical intelligence for instance. I mean i feel since writing the book have felt more self conscious of those kinds of elements and out do feel through observation and and deliberate reflection you can improve them and of course some of the most intelligent people that i know are the ones who spend more time listening than talking right. I feel like they may be intuitively or have learned over time and they have developed some of this wisdom to understand that in fact they can learn more from the situation they can make better decisions if they stepped back as opposed goes to try to control the situation but i want to talk a little bit about what are some of the other forms of the intelligence trap so now if we can all agree if we're talking about intelligence we're really focusing in this case on the kind of analytical intelligence that is taught in schools and that seems to be particularly you know when most people think of intelligence that's what they think of but how does that trap us into situations in which we actually make worse decisions yeah so i mean this is really the heart of the book. I think and it's really what surprised me. The most is always researching it but it's not just the intelligent people might be lacking certain skills bachelet can and lead you astray. I'm so i compare it almost to like a car with a really fast engine but with no brakes steering wheel you know it's just going to the foster you you got the more likely you are to have a crash and i think very much the same could be said of intelligence so i think like the second important form of the intelligence trap. If the first is the lack of practical intelligence the second is this concept known as motivated reasoning and that's really where you you apply your brain power just to protect your beliefs and intuitions rather than really trying to look things in a more rational minded open minded kind of way so i think like we see this a lot in politics for instance so for issues like gun control or climate change change the very much tied to someone's political identity..

"Where do you think the pockets. It's a of <hes>. I guess where you made a certain amount of income with the way that you've lived which i believe is also always been below your means well <hes> where you were able to start really investing. Was it really in that forty to one forty which is so called middle class. Was it a little higher a little less like. When do you think like that became came a like a a a thing that you were doing often. It was on your mind. You're aware of it. You had ex- excess cash because the way you live. They're trying to give some people some benchmarks. Yeah yeah yeah <hes> in terms of like income levels. I would say that i was able to invest hand a year yeah some kind of calculation. I guess i'd say between one hundred and one hundred fifty you know you you know you definitely should be able to to <hes> to invest awesome from capital and some different investments if you're making one hundred one hundred fifty for sure especially if you're a single man you know yet. I got to watch out for those prostitutes l. for the sock up your money and also so <hes> yeah i. That's what i was thinking like <hes> until who i got to that which you know. I don't want to say that you can't invest until you get to that level because that's not the case because like you said there's teachers that make fifty grand a year that event you know but kim seventeen five every year but i didn't get real conscious to. I think it's because once again as an entrepreneur a lot of my money was going right back into who was doing so. It wasn't like i just had a job. I made a hundred and i got the money back and i was feeding into by more quick men and doing different things along out out of my journey of trying to create this gym and everything and but that's when i started like at least during the roth i._r._a. And the the basic mutual funds stuff like at least like like being conscious of hey. I need to put something because i didn't. I don't have a 4._0._1. Or anything that's set up by a corporation. You know you have to take the stuff on ourselves cbs in so i think that's probably when i started. Doing those type of things also was around that that level but i wish i honestly. I wish i would have started much earlier. I wish i understood dividends. I wish i understood the market. I wish i understood all of that stuff way earlier and if you're listening to this right now and you don't there's plenty of google searches you can do figured out or meet with a local person that does this for a living like you should know the basics of these things so you can have the true financial tools in i._q.

I don't think i put it in the show but i will. I want you to look at the picture in this n._p._r. Piece in the show what the stories about apparently some of these academic academic institutions of higher learning they have walls of honor for nobel prize winners and people who've done great things in their past <hes> they've taken can the job. This is not a joke this. This story is going to make you scratch. Your head like you haven't scratched in a long long time. They've taken these nobel prize winners in these great men and women down because a lot of them were white. What the hell all does that have to do with anything.

Some liberal nonsense coming coming up next to don't miss the rest of the show. This amazon fires thing is out of control literally out of control but the political narratives out of control to case you missed it.

Over seventy even girls but they found nobody the nike over one seventy except on fluorinated areas isn't that interesting that assassinated we should specify specify that boys tend to be more commonly found on the outer fringe of the bell curve both ways boys tend to be absolute idiots or geniuses. Mrs girl tend to be much more central right exactly yeah that's why when you look at i._q.'s of say a hundred and seventy two hundred and there are seven times more males and females. That's just a biological fact. There's also seven times more idiots and people like us under eighty or nine so so girls would tend to have a much more average i._q..

It's the fact that nobody knows anything. Nobody nobody knows anything things. We've been told for fifty years one hundred years they can be up ended overnight the food pyramid. We were told there's the food beer you gotta eat a ton of carbs and not a lot of fat now. The food pyramid limit is exactly the opposite conspiracy theories or are popping up and apparently true overnight. One of them is one of the oldest ones in the book truly proof that nobody knows anything for decades. The kookiest crankiest wacky conspiracy theorists on the right have harped on one conspiracy theory above almost almost all the others that the floride that the government puts in drinking water is harmful to us this began in nineteen forty five the u._s. began again fluoridated water because it prevents tooth decay and the character that almost immediately developed of right-wingers was that they all thought that this was a communist meanest plot to destroy us. The fluoride in the water was messing with our brains and affecting us somehow this was parodied in the great film. Dr strangelove love when the brigadier general jack d ripper talks about our precious bodily fluids. I can no longer sit back and allow allow communist infiltration communist indoctrination communists version now that part we all agree with i mean that's just that's not the conspiracy theory but then this is where the caricature comes in and the international communist conspiracy to sap an impure fai all of our precious bodily fluids okay ha ha. You crazy stupid right wingers. Ha ha you guys are so dumb right well. It turns out the conspiracy theorists very likely have a point. There is a new study out published an influential medical journal that links floride consumption during pregnancy with lower childhood. I._q.'s apparently the fluoride in drinking water according into this study is so affecting our precious bodily fluids that it's making us all stupider to put this into perspective. Three quarters of the united states drinks drinks fluoridated tap water and now when i'm at the san francisco airport. I can't even by a regular water bottle without any fluoride in it because that's been banned so i have to bring my own water bottle and fill up the fluoridated tap water. Oh my gosh maybe this is. All of the conspiracy are just coming together right now. The main takeaway from this is not don't necessarily that communist infiltration is affecting our precious bodily fluids could be but the main takeaway is that we know much much less about the material world than we think that we do. We know so much less. We pass these invitee environmental regulations all these policies because we say this is how we're gonna help the environment and guess what we do because we're so stupid we end up harming the environment with the very policies that were intended to help the environment. We tell everybody you've gotta eat the food pyramid. You've got to stuff your face with cereal oh and pasta and breads. That's how you're going to be healthy and then fifty years later. They tell you actually what we got it a little bit wrong you actually <hes> shouldn't have any of those things at all ever but you should eat a lot of fat and i don't know what it's going to be tomorrow.

The pilot script I think and it was just very detailed in the finale script of just surface level all dialogue here which I don't like the whole thing about the time people are speaking onscreen going down per season because that makes more sense. There are just more action sequences in the later seasons. They're more characters in earlier season exactly so that criticism. I don't think you can make thinks he's in six is still great but well. I guess guess we'll eventually review season it in its entirety and we'll we'll get into all the things that maybe they could have done differently but we've we've made the case so many times so let's go to another question the difference between what they you know saying like pointing out criticisms and just saying.

I think there's less less of that now but but that's an interesting won the second is are there other greater correlations nations right because one of the benefits of diversification is you by companies of different different exposures and <hes> if they're not correlated with one another you get the benefits of diversification but if you're dealing with baskets or indexes <hes> the question is is correlation and do correlations rise in which case the benefits of diversification become less pronounced and <hes> the third one is again goes back the same thing it's Society of liquidity right. Does it affect liquidity the fact that most people have this money locked up in these things and and there's less less Detroit out there <hes> by the way all these things I think our people's talked a lot about them. I think that they they're even more pronounced in the bond markets in there in the stock market but I think there's a very <hes> <hes> active ongoing research on all these topics and I think that I don't I don't know all the full answers on those things so yeah my advice to people would be <hes> that they should probably they probably should index if they're not interested but the fact is that there are still opportunities he's for people for active managers by definition and <hes> I'll just do one slightly academic thing. There's a really famous paper written in nineteen eighty called on the possibility of information efficient markets it Sandy Grossman and Joe Stiglitz and and the argument is pretty straightforward they say markets can't be perfectly efficient and the reason is that there's a cost to gathering information and reflecting it in prices and as long as there's a cost to doing that there should be a benefit in the form of access returns so <hes> Las Pederson another finance professors got this clever Termi says markets are efficiently inefficient right there has to be enough inefficiency to encourage active manders to go out and try to find those inefficiencies and take advantage of <hes> but <hes> they can't be there can't be a lot of twenty dollar bills or one hundred dollar bills lying on the sidewalk so it's really interesting set of questions so the punchline is though in active management world not GonNa go away but for most people <hes> and by the way the things indexes here's our free riders right. They are free writing off the active managers in terms of price discovery and I've no I have no problem with free writing <hes> but I I think we should be clear about what it is and call it out for what it is so let's come at this another away with another study that you discuss and I. I'm sorry I can't remember which book I have like all your books get them confused times but it's the one with the brain damage subjects and the normal subjects tell us about that and I have a very specific question about that but tell us about that and I think that that study mostly related to two loss aversion so the setup is <hes> you take a group of people who are who have brain damage and and and the kids that they have a very specific type brain damage so <hes> they're also often stroke victim so they can do mathematical calculations very well they have normal i._q.'s and so forth but the part of their brain damaged is that that relates to emotion so they're they're emotionally emotionally sort of flatlined. They don't really feel fear or or greed or anger. They just don't have a lot of emotional <hes> pulse and then you compare them to people who are normal <hes> so people off the street and the way this <hes> <hes> experiment was set up as you were endowed with twenty dollars. Everybody's got twenty dollars a front and then you played a game where the researcher would flip a coin and if you call it right or came up tails or whatever it is you get two dollars and fifty percents and if you call it wrong you lose your okay so you and your dollar over the researcher and then they flip the coin to fifty if you got it right and you lose your dollar. If you get it wrong now each round of the game you could do one of two things you could either hand dollar over and then have the coin flip or you. We just keep it and just go to the next round right there you. You're guaranteed to keep your dollar right so that's the setup and you know you don't have to do a lot of math understand that you should you should hand your money over to the research right because it's a it's a dollar twenty five expected value right fifty percent to fifty versus losing your dollars so you should hand out money over the researcher and the goal the X. experiment is to have the most money at the end right so turns out they do this experiment and the brain damage people end up with thirteen percent more your money than the normal people which by the way in twenty rounds of a game is actually a pretty big margin of difference and <hes> the key when they sort of unpacked it was that the <hes> brain damage people played many more rounds than than normal people did and in particular ticket they played twice as many rounds after having lost so I think the psychology what's going on here. Is it your your normal person and by the way the first few rounds of the game everyone got that they should have their money over so they'll do this but your normal person then you and you lose two or three times in a row and you start to say you know what I'm seeing. My bankroll goes down. This doesn't feel good. You say maybe I'll just sit out a couple rounds. I'll keep those dollars put him back in and then I'll play when I feel better right and so you think about the stock market environment that when people suffer losses they will willingly turn down obviously net present dia positive investments. That's the basic moral the story so you think about the first quarter of two thousand nine right we'd been through horrible fall. Two thousand eight markets are down sharply most everybody who's involved as lost money. We don't really know where the bottoms going to be on all this stuff mathematically lead say <hes> s and P's at six seventy earnings power's. Probably you know seventy or eighty bucks you know the math of whether the risk premia or through the roof the math whether the market was compelling was pretty straightforward. Although you just suffer through before period and most people felt that they should not get involved with the market right or even pull their money out of the stock market right so the brain damage people not suffering from that same set of inhibitions basically says <hes>. I just get that is good and P._v.. So I'm going Eh that person is. I'm just going to basically go go for it. So that's that study and the moral the story is not to say that you should be emotionally flatlined throughout your life but to say more that <hes> understand that your emotional state will affect your assessment of of an investment opportunity and in this case we had one that was overtly mathematically straightforwardly positive and people still chose not to play because they were they were stung by recent losses. So what was the question. You're GONNA ask Dan. We got some specific on that. Well actually maybe it's not a question I just struck on that struck me yeah comment sorry so it just struck me as really really that the salient feature that whole story is people with brain damage people with without the emotional engagement of so-called normal people bet twice as often after a loss at that really. It's one one of the things that tells me like okay you say. Most people should index and I when I said most people shouldn't be in the stock market. I think I'm effectively saying that I'm saying they they shouldn't be actively managing their own account buying and selling individual securities for that the reason because if you're norm if you're just a regular normal human being being a normal human beings kind of set you up for failure it seems like in the stock market which is a little crazy because everybody's in it right and you mentioned before briefly this Dalbar study and I'm not sure Dalbar is the best of this but you know there does appear to be you know a gap in returns and just take one little step back. You know it's an interesting and and you know I think Jack Bull Great Jack Vocal talk to for a bit about this so it turns out that if you look at the average you look at the stock market does some rate of return over time. Look at the average active mutual fund does a shade below that mostly because the fees but if you look at the average individual investor they do substantially worse they do something like sixty percent of the markets returns <hes> and this is that's people call it. The investor gap right which is the reason is they tend to buy and sell low. They do the opposite of what they're supposed to to do. You one of the points I always liked to make is that you know the these numbers vacillate over time and I think actually they've improved over time but you know historically folks like Jack Bogle suggested that number could be as high as one hundred and our number's higher but I I think was good methodology. Something like one hundred twenty basis points per year now in in a world where you know a reasonable nominal return for the stock market is probably I don't know seven eight percent whatever the number would be one hundred twenty base points <hes> one point percentage points as a lot right and so this is not this is not a sort of an we I've said gave it through the Lens of an experiment but this is not this is real life because when you lose one hundred twenty basis points per year compound that over ten twenty thirty years that's a substantial differential and terminal wealth as a consequence of that so you know avoiding some of these mistakes <hes> can be especially when you consider the role of compounding can make a huge different and a huge difference of people's outcomes and their life just so you have a really good technique for helping people kind of get over. Some of this called a decision journal. What is that so I mentioned when I talked talk to the first time you know he mentioned this disciplined intuition? I also that day asked him for the one bit of advice he would give to a manager investor and he said you know without like hesitating said you should have just a journal of your decisions and so the argument is that when you make consequential decision <hes> you should write down what you expect to happen. Why you expect to happen? You should also note how you feel physically and emotionally nationally about the decision and then <hes> if possible you should when you talk about your expectations us express those things in probabilities not words like I think there's a good chance that X._y._Z. will do that but rather probabilities actual numbers and the argument is that this allows you to <hes> give yourself honest and accurate feedback on your decisions right so what happens is you make a decision and whether it turns out well it turns ends up poorly and whether it's well for good for the right reasons or good for the wrong reasons or bad for the right reasons about from 'cause you tend to make up a story that put yourself in a good light you tend to your justify things that turned out badly and whatever it is and so when you've written it down and <hes> and and by typically they're there to things that come into play once called hindsight bias you think you knew it was going to happen with a greater probability that you actually did and even written it down so you can't prove that one way or another and the others this concept onto Paul creeping determinism. which is you start to think? You knew it was going to happen where <hes> you know I mean you thought what happens is inevitable in some way so the journal allows you to keep track of your forecast. Keep track of your thoughts and to give yourself on a C. Back in and they I think one things have been demonstrated in psychology and a lot of other fields is that timely an accurate feedback is what allows you to get better at what you're doing so timely feedback for forecasting allows allows.

If you're innocent he is serving three concurrent current life terms in prison without possibility of parole so after the all of that the verdict comes down in January of two thousand eight several jurors came forward and claimed that there was a racial bias in the jury room during the deliberations so all twelve jurors got called back to court by that judge and they all were questioned over those claims and their testimony revealed that there was racial tension in the jury room <hes> so because of that Krista from gallons lawyer use used that information as grounds to file an emotion for a retrial but that was struck down as have all three appeals that McGowan's defense attorneys have filed on his behalf since he got sentenced and then in two thousand twelve the defense attorney Bob George was a convicted of money laundering and he himself served three years in prison. It's yes so the very very much I mean. I don't know there's a lot of things that get introduced in this case in this forty eight hours and that this that Defense Attorney Bob George he actually did a really good job of introducing all all these possible doubts this case but at the end of the day it's D._N._A.. Yeah and his was the only d._N._A.. On Her body and she was raped and murdered and she was raped and murdered which would. The meant there would have been someone else's D._N._A.. There right yeah yeah and it's funny because that forty eight hours is kind of old and they it's interesting how it feels like they keep pointing to this idea that she quote had a lot of boyfriends that that that seemed to be at play in the way people kind of like judge this yeah that unlike she had an affair with a married man where it's like she was not to be trusted. Yeah Yeah Yeah or there was I. I don't know I didn't like didn't like it and the movie did that to the movie was crazy. The movie was all about fucking Tony Jackets. The will the character that was representing him and like how tough his life was and how these all these women were making his life really tough and there's no whore fucking baby you have to see you have to see it. It's pretty amazing and there's also the SA- casting as fucking fascinating the woman who plays Tony Jackets. It's wife a couple of times I was like is that Bridget Everett helmet because it looked like and it was this kind of like everything had it was right on the verge of being campion and then we just come back every time and too boring when they made the movie. Did they know who the killer wasn't than they. They showed that what happened E. S. although I I'm pretty sure I fell asleep before the end of the move. Because how can you victim blame throughout a movie and then it turns out. It's just some fucking other gosh psycho murderer yes. You know what I mean. We're which has it wouldn't matter if she was. Let's say promiscuous or not. I'm not saying she was but it wouldn't fucking matter. It doesn't matter anyway the thing that happened happened. That's the case that needs to get sold old. I mean it's crazy. Yeah I think at the end of this thing it's there they leave it super vague like maybe he right. No he did yeah but I I recommend everyone because it's this bizarre crossroads of of it's almost like every bad reenactment you've ever seen if all the rain actors headlines Jesus whereas like you know what play with the scene and figure out what happened with you guys I wanNA see lazy. Susan jackets gets her groove back where she leaves her fucking Shit. The husband goes to an island is it Susan and Susan Jacket is now Susan Jack how that's fucked up. It's crazy but the little girl the good news is a little role went to live with the person that that Christa Worthington chose to be Boga to be the The Guardian which is a good friend of hers but Tony Jackets Answers have visited her and now she's like a <hes> in college and she's doing great honey. Fly Your bird spread your wings. That's my words of encouragement. I bet that'll work. Spread the spread your wings and stuff wow crazy. I mean it's almost like a good thing that your ankle twisted go ahead and say it's a good thing that I watch TV twenty four hours a day. Finally something good came out of it. Take care.
