"And and Addison kind of brought this up on the air. I don't like titans after like my top targets are gone like top five or six whatever. I don't like them either. They're not good the there. There's a lot of words there. But you do still have to. You can't ignore the position, and you might have to grab a guy that you're not totally on board with and and I think that was where I, probably as you stated I probably would have gone somebody earlier than Kyle. Rudolph has my number two. Even if I wasn't in love with or liked any of those guys that you gotta get someone, you're Kinda, sometimes, you kind of have to force that tech, but yeah there is that there is a second sight Enron and otherwise you just get you get stuck with your terrible. It's players all right so Richard Alan was drafting eight tonight, and this is the team I talked up in the first half of the draft. Let's take a look at See I feel the same way after the entire draft is over, so Richard gets a Matt Ballinger. Garoppolo darnold and Haskins as quarterbacks, running backs through miles, Sanders Todd Gurley Ronald Jones keyshawn Bonn to record as his running backs. Wide Receiver Julio Jones, Mike Evans. Aj Brown Keenan Allen Jerry Judy Rashad paramount deal, mims tight ends are Mike is sick. He Chris Herndon NJ J. Sternberg so I've and I think people should take this so the grain of salt when I talk about people's quarterbacks. I pretty much ignore quarterbacks to two points where I probably shouldn't and so if you get two or three quarterbacks in the best ball slim, I'm. It's hard for me to say anything negative about it. Richard Mellon waited until the fifteenth round to take a quarterback and I'm still not saying anything negative about as core of Garoppolo, darnold and Haskins in this map running backs I loved early, but Davey ignored him after around ten he basically. Basically Got Sanders girly in the bucks backfield adds to recall and he decides he's good after that, and then focuses on other positions, I love the top four receivers. I know you Kinda like Judy this year. Bershad paramount and Denzel. Men's you're basically guaranteed. The jets number one receiver that way I. Love Me Some J. Sternberg or you pair herndon along. He's got this jet stack here. Basically with the receivers, you get a good thing. darnold well I don't know, but when you're paying that little I make some sense there. That was intentional but I still like this team. I think it's good running back. Stay healthy. He'll be fine. Yeah I. Mean I like the team overall I think you sacrifice quarterback, and he sacrificed tight end to some extent to build the running backs and receivers which are quite strong at the top end. You know they really are quite good I mean he got super value on girly. In the fourth I think you know you made that statement and then NFL an. NFL PA made the agreement I mean. I don't understand why girlies falling at all. He's fine. He's GonNa play. Yeah, I think that's ridiculous. These fallen, so he got that he got gift giving them. Julio, Evans Aj. Brown keen on a super solid I mean his top six rounds or fantastic. And even after that I mean I don't I don't see a lot of problems with the picks quarterbacks. I would like it to be a little bit better, but I mean his. The rest of his team is pretty darn good. He's GonNa be a tough team to compete with We talked to todd boroughs from the run to daylight podcast earlier in the show. This is what his team ended up being tonight Carson, wentz Teddy, Bridgewater Gardner Menchu are his quarterback is running back Kenyan Drake Damian. Williams, the Andrea Swift JK Dobbins Boston Scott receivers to re kill Odell Beckham Dj, more Mike Williams Paris, Campbell Antonio Brown and Josh Reynolds, high, ends Dallas. Got Hurt, Blake Darwin and Debonair Chiesi. I I'm quarterbacks are fine. The running backs. He took a lot of like A swing for the fences with some of these picks Damian Williams down to swift JK Dobbins Boston Scott, and then that was it, and that's all he has behind Kenyan drake for Then you look at the receivers, top, three or great in my opinion, but then after that. Mike Williams run based offense I. Don't know Paris Campbell. They drafted. Michael Pittman you Kinda. Know what they think about Campbell at this point Antonio Brown to me is not gonNA. have any impact this year I'm not a Josh Reynolds. Guy tight ends I i. don't I wouldn't be drafting. But I guess you know, he could be a starter for New England and then got it and Blake. Darwin just doesn't get my juices going either. I hear you I. Mean I I actually like Charleston whatever I I. I I don't know for some reason I'm not not a huge guy. There's a lot of receivers that year therapy, throwing four fourth or fifth offensive weapon on that team. Forgive me for interrupting, but this is something that you always brought up on the show with Mike McCarthy and the packers, they never through to tight, and it's actually a really your. Head Coach in Dallas. Yeah, feel free to get ignored immediately blades on. His we as running backs are interesting I mean they're like you said there are a lot of stabs out there, but I I think he's GonNa. You know he's GonNa. He's a hit on a few of them. Sorry back on Jayjay more I love that I. Don't really mind Mike Williamson I think he's. He's got a pretty competitive team actually. moving onto team ten. That was Matthew Zimmer and Matt Stewart they have for PC JOE's here. They ended up with the Shawn. Watson and Baker Mayfield is their quarterbacks. They're running. Backs are David Johnson Devon Single Terry Marlin. Max Sony Michelle, Zach Mosque, Devante, Freeman and Chris Thomson Receivers Davante Adams Juju. Smith Schuster. Ty, Hilton, CD, Lamb, Sammy Watkins alshon Jeffery tight ends are Travis, Kelsey and rob. Gronkowski, while figure that pairing a couple of years ago and Dawson so. Dawson. Oh Ms Tossing Knox. Yeah, all right, don't forget us. He's good, so agree or disagree. You can tell that these are F F PC veterans. This is this is like an NFL more of an FTC team. There are. There's a lot of interestingly good ticks in this in this team and just to single out a few. Obviously, the top half is pretty good but as you get later on Marlin, Mac in the ninth round is interesting CD lamb as your number, four receivers also interesting, the starting running back for the Patriots in the Eleventh Round You Zach Moss to go with Devon Single Terry. Who they say they want him to play the role to. Pair them up. We talked I already I told Ya. Much I like the Sammy Watkins Pick I. Totally loved the Dawson knocks pick as well a little bit less bullish on our. But the Chris Thomson thing is interesting to He's been doing for free was not bad. You know it's like he's been assigned. Yeah I just wonder what his impact will be on that whatever team he signs with, but yeah, this is a total like vintage of like if you're like. Oh, how? PC stakes veteran draft best ball slim I think you know exhibited any Matthews Zimmer Matt Stewart right here what they did. okay team eleven sigma bloom from football, guys. He ends up with Russell Wilson Aaron, Rodgers Kirk, cousins as his quarterbacks, running backs are Nick Chubb. David Montgomery, Duke Johnson Kerryon Johnson the hime hines running back. Wide Receiver. Adam feeling power lock, Brandin Cooks, Robbie Anderson Corey.

Newell thank you so much for being part of Ashby another. I have been watching Zoe's extraordinary playlist. Okay? No, that some of the cast are professional singers dancers like you Alex but the show features a lot of choreography that I assume you don't get a lot of time to learn. What was that like for you, Jane Yeah. There's a there's a an array of experience throughout the cast, Alex Newell comes in, and just does one kick and is like I learned it. It's fine. Under some of us who get eight rehearsals because it's a lot harder. Yeah. I do I do learn I have learned a music number. The day of but Jane has as well. While yeah, but mine are usually.

What could TE Austin Hooper bring to Packers offense?
"Was a report from. I think it was robbed a mosque. Who covers the Green Bay packers and he made you know at least the packers are aware that they need more pask actors? They reportedly planned to add two of them via free agency and the draft. And you can certainly get a bunch. But I'm not sure that the guy that he talked he said they're played into. Target Austin Hooper. I'm not sure that's what Aaron Rodgers really needs. I would rather see somebody more explosive. I don't know what you think about that but either released Jimmy Graham who's just Zaslov signing for them. I would note that Matlin. Flair was the Falcons quarterbacks coach when Austin who was a rookie in two thousand sixteen in Atlanta But Yeah I. I don't know I'm not sure awesome. Hooper is exactly what fixes. What's wrong with Green Bay right now? Which is clear. It's Green Bay at margin only feels comfortable throwing to Davante Adams. Yeah I think they're awesome. Hooper would be fine signing You give the packers a solid possession tight end just really reliable. Almost eighty percent career catch. Ray Can block enough from a dynasty standpoint. He would block J Sternberg who drafted in the third round. This past year in. I mean I really liked him coming at a at a Texas. A&m But you know. Yeah he he would be a big roadblock in the way of j Sternberg. I'm completely with you. Though in Syria I mean I. I think that they should sign two guys. I mean I think that Al Having Allen Lazard as your number two option. The passing game isn't good enough and I think that even if they signed someone like Austin Hooper. I think should go robby Anderson. You know I think that Robbie Anderson Opposite Davante Adams would give them Just a completely different dynamic in their passing game. I think that they need some any they I think they need an explosive field stretcher. And Yeah if I was. I would focus on a guy like Robin Anderson. I mean mark has vowed is scant laying in theory had the skill set to be that guy but he just did not take a second year. Yeah there were some reports from Our friend Matthew Berry had noted that era jittery like Salazar staff-related Allen. So I think they're going to add a wide receiver for sure. But for now I would consider Allen Lazard the front runner for the number two wide receiver job. Assuming they don't add anybody which then was certainly
SoftBank keeps walking away from startup investments
"This morning Dan. premark revealed that sources have been telling telling him that Softbank's Vision Fund has actually walked away from several investments in startups over recent weeks these startups had all received term. I'm she tes already. From South Bank to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars Softbank had delayed some funding around concentrations. Recently after the whole we work turmoil but reportedly Softbank had told the companies involved that the closing delays would only be temporary. Apparently that turned out not to be true to say. It's highly unusual for an investor to ghost after delivering a term. Sheet would be putting it. Mildly here are just two examples quoting Dan. Honor is a San Francisco homecare company for older adults. That's raised over one hundred million dollars from firms. Like Andriessen Horowitz. NASCAR's and thrive capital. It received a term sheet from Softbank in mid-november with subsequent reports putting the deal size at around one hundred fifty million dollars Softbank CEO Masayoshi sewn gave his blessing during a meeting at his woodside. California state with honor. Co Seth Sternberg per a source familiar. Softbank kept saying it had to run some process stuff before getting the term sheet fully signed nine but said they wanted to get it funded by year end. So it started confirmatory due-diligence law firms background checks iwo going through stuff etc.. There was no reason to think there was going going to be a problem and quote. Softbank Killed The deal one week before Christmas telling honor that son had changed his mind. Sawn did not personally communicate his decision. Decision or rationale to the company and quote and Creator is a San Francisco based developer of hamburger making robots whose backers include Google ventures as an KHOSLA ventures. Softbank signed the company to an exclusive six-month term sheet for a round that was many multiples of the twenty five million dollars in it raised to date quote. Totally screwed screwed is how one source close to Creator refers to what happened next like with the other examples it was unexplained delay after unexplained delay and at one point said it wanted wanted to add a co lead investor. The company pushed back and Softbank agreed to wire between ten million and fifteen million dollars a show of good faith but the hurry up and wait persisted with multiple sources telling me last month that the original deal was dead. Things may have since changed however as a source close to Softbank says negotiations remain remain active and quote.
Tiny Worms Are Equipped To Battle Extreme Environments
"At Toyota we believe that American veterans have the strongest credentials on earth especially when you consider that they spend years gaining valuable experience by putting their lives on the line to protect the country they love and the people that live here but that doesn't always mean finding a career path is easy. That's why Toyota has partnered with hiring our as Europe's to help over one hundred fifty thousand veterans and military spouses connect with employment opportunities. We are Toyota. USA. This is scientific Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata in the science. It's fiction story June. The Desert Planet Iraq is inhabited by enormous fearsome sandwich shops they blast out of the dunes to swallow vehicles the whole they also look familiar to Caltech geneticists Paul Sternberg. We look like nats anything in pop culture has relationship doors. We follow nematodes toads of course are much smaller than sand worms most never told you can just barely see and there are a lot slower these worms are probably take one hundred years to get across the US if they could could do it and they went continuously day and night even so they're pretty scary when you look at them up close. Sternberg and his colleagues had a hunch they might find nematodes lurking in one of California's most extreme extreme habitats Mono Lake on the east side of the Sierra Nevada it super salty alkaline and loaded with arsenic and previously known to harbor only two animal species easies brine shrimp and Alkali flies so the researchers took soil samples at beaches around the lake and indeed they found eight species of nematodes living there so we just I went from two animals to at least ten species so that's Kinda striking so are they going to be others the lake yeah people should go look photos and details are in the journal current Biology Sternberg. His colleagues were able to culture one of the worm species in the lab and they discovered it could survive five hundred times the dose of arsenic they would kill a human but they also found that even nemo toads that weren't from Mona Lake seemed to have the genetic ability to resist the lethal element meaning. The worms may be Natural Boron extrema files us from the worms perspective invading a host. That's a harsh environment so I think there's some general ability than Emma toads to adapt to harsh environments like Doc. Maybe Mars I have a fantasy that we should send Amadou's. We really interesting. He could get the codes to photosynthesis or carry photosynthetic organisms and then worth talking about of course that's scenarios in the realm of science fiction for now. Thanks for listening for scientific Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dunya.
Solheim Cup 2019: Europe pip USA in dramatic finale
"The European Solheim Cup team beat the Americans fourteen eighteen and a half to thirteen and a half it came down to the final putt which almost never happens which is too bad because I feel like we're now do for like three decades of not very fun. Suzann Pettersen made about an eight footer to win and she promptly retired after doing so it was a fascinating day it started in Thai eight to eight matches flipped back and forth all over at Gleneagles. Five matches reached the eighteenth hole which also almost never happens. How many matches reached the eighteenth breath at the Ryder Cup last year. I think it's it's something like it's one out of five or six matches reach eighteen so this was exciting all over the board. I I mean this was back and forth there was tied going to Sunday and then it kept being tied points on Sunday. It was eleven eleven and there were six matches on the course course it looked like the US was gonNA win. Honestly my gosh at one point. Everything needed to go. Europe's way the US posted thirteen and a half points. They just needed that that last half point in could not get it yeah thirteen and a half they would retain the cup with fourteen which no one loves a tie. I Know Stina Sternberg. She is is very proudly European and she was like you know. It's not a good rule that fourteen and a tie retains the Cup for a team. It should have a playoff and I'm like like wow. It sounds like she's kind of being defeatist. She's accepting the fact that the Americans are probably going to grab that fourteenth point and win in Thai Lo and behold everything and went their way. What's crazy though is that Peterson was almost not even in position to make this thing happen. I mean she could have lost him. The seventeenth hole because Marina Alex had like a twenty foot Putt to win to end the Solheim Cup right there then she flares drive into the rough on eighteen which means that even though she's plenty long if she'd been in the ferry she got up near the green she couldn't because she was on the Ralph so she has to lay up. Marina Alex has kind of do the same name and basically it's just like a wedge off from there and she almost freaking holdout from was eighty nine yards. She almost holes out. She spins it back with a wedge and gives her about eight feet now. This is where our just on edge because on the seventeenth hole Yep Bronte law just. I don't know if she's basically she's away from everything. She's away from everyone and yet she's just as important like if she doesn't finish out. If she ends up bringing her match to eighteen and then they have the tie. It's over. That doesn't matter yeah. Everyone's doing what they had to do. The thing that had me on edge is is the fact that I ended up hoping that this would go in ooh. I'm American. This is a pro-american podcast love. That Danielle King joins US last. This week was all about it but if you're talking about an eight footer to win if it goes in to lose if it doesn't how awkward is that if she misses law wall it's it's do or die. I mean it's awkward but look we've seen plenty of that. In these team matches before you know sometimes as you miss a Putt and then that's what ends the match it would be brutal no doubt about it. At least it's an eight footer in not a three footer. It's actually kind of the perfect perfect pop writer on the distance just outside the distance of fifty fifty coin flip of Michigan make this or is she not so if she misses it's not it's not that that she's choking an eight footer for Birdie. I Miss Plenty of eight for Birdie in my day and I would miss that one. She pureed it though right in in the Senate right in the center which was great because I mean it was uphill. PUTT so it would probably be the easiest eight footer he could imagine but this is definitely a win for Mark Brody. If people appreciated that it could go in it could go out it could win for you could lose it for you but that is one of the things that we need to discuss about the Solheim Cup this Cup the Ryder Cup is always grounds for a revival of someone's narrative and Suzann Pettersen like it brought her back to the peak of the game. After a long break she had not played a lot of Gulf this year. She was given a captain's pick. She played pretty well throughout the week but who knows where she's she's. GonNa go years from now or three weeks. From now like she was very uncertain about her career and four years ago she was at the center of the game because she did concede a short putt that led to a winning match that led to a very very contentious Solheim Cup. All I'm saying is that it gave her an an opportunity and that's what these things do like it gave Martin Cameron Opportunity in Dina to win the Ryder Cup and that adds to his all fame resume this added to Suzann Pettersen Hall of fame resume. What matters here is the Gulf like that. That is what's great at. It is something that means nothing and yet it means everything well. How much does this echo also just from last year team. Europe throttled the US in the Ryder Cup yet Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia Henrik Stenson Henry guys that didn't seem on paper like they were logical picks guys that would not end up on an American equivalent team here you've Suzann as in Pederson. Hardly played golf has controversial past what more perfect way for her to finish then to drop her putter halfway when the boss still halfway to the whole sure she was nervous but she looked plenty confident. She looked like she was trying to make the pot rather than you know the moment being too big for her or something something it was just such a cool morning because look we love Sunday early golf. You know we love that. Being the state's waking up some Gov actually had a nice little Sunday seven twenty teatime. Nice my hometown Williamstown Massachusetts finished up just before ten thirty went down down how quick sit in the in the grill and and just flipped on the Solheim Cup Danielle Kings match was just coming down the sixteenth hole and just had an ed really nice next few hours. Yes I stayed right there. How great is that. When multiple hours of golf can go by and you don't even notice because not feel like the action kept continuing. That's why these matches are so cool is because like okay. Here's another close match coming down to the wire and people were coming by you know coming coming in and out of the the grill and saying. Oh yeah what's going on in the Solheim and stopping and watching for a few minutes then going about their day but people were invested. Did you could tell you know whether it was just on social media whether it is in real life people were dialed into this tournament what I hope is that the TV ratings I agree with that. I hope that allow people watched. I had the feeling that a lot of people were watching. It cannot get more exciting what happened on TV on golf. Channel Channel could not get more exciting than what happened yesterday.
"j sternberg" Discussed on Filmspotting
"I decided to go right down the middle with with an insert shot of her hands so it's it's not entirely her but she is definitely there and this does come from shanghai express. It's when lily is attempting to pray for doc. Who's being held hostage at this point and this shot just involves her hands fund stirred chooses to basically capture the intensity of this moment with one close up there lit so they're they're glowing in what his otherwise darkness they're trying to close in prayer but just not being able to completely class a little bit of traveling going on here as well and i just think i think it's the reason i chose it for my von. Sternberg moment is because it's everything we need to know via an image <hes> and this being sternberg. It's a melodramatic image. The importance of of the action we understand lillies conflicted emotions about it. We understand and we see both the bright hope that's involved but also the darkness surrounding it. That's it's going to just snuff that. Hope out at any moment too so it's it's <hes> maybe a minute choice for this. It's not quite as ostentatious and some of the more or elaborate sequences that he did with tracking shots or dissolves but i do like the specificity of it and i also like you know back to the scarlet empress that it calls back to this. I think a very different context. Though do you remember. This is one moment where i feel like okay now. She's coming into her own when she seduces the guard in the garden garden yet when she realizes i've got i've got to get pregnant. If that's her power play. It's not going to happen from the halfway so why not this. <hes> you know guard who's almost as handsome as john lodge right that whole thing is captured. She puts her arms around his neck. Yeah we see her hands or essentially see them committing the act by by how her hands and react so it's a it's a motif of on sternberg so i think it works says the best funster moment the best part of that exchange with the guard out in the night is the payoff later of the joke when he doesn't recognize her as she's now the empress and she describes him as surely very efficient yeah from how it was depicted it was it was a fish. Maybe a little more del though he only needed one attempt yeah that's true good. She was after her. She got from that guard. Okay best picture probably not much of a surprise here and yet we will let nathaniel do the honors call it peak dietrich call call it peaked dietrich and peak von sternberg. Whatever side you choose eyelid be surprised if we didn't all agree. Shanghai express is the best film of this marathon. Thanks guys nathaniel as he so often is is absolutely correct about shanghai express being the best film in this marathon. If you could only watch watch one of these four movies to get the best sense of who both of them were as artist. Someone gave me that challenge. It would be a very quick answer to say just go to shanghai express yeah. That's where i would point people to. I think of the four films we've seen at least it's the one where everything between dietrich von sternberg is clicking perfectly. He i.

"She downs the drink in one gulp just like a man and she starts. It's to walk away and then just like a man might she sees something she likes the woman at the table madame scissor and she lingers and she stares at her and she just looks her up and down and it's only a few seconds but it feels like it's a lot longer and in that moment that's sizing up of madams. Are you get the mystery of dietrich. You get this kind of sense of danger. The woman can only only laugh at it because you so kind of unnerved by it but then just like a man dietrich. She takes exactly what she wants. She first does that little little magic trick or whatever with the flower behind her head and she says can i have this so she's very polite there and saying can i have this flour and when the woman says yes she takes takes it and then she just goes after the kiss she doesn't ask for permission for the kiss she just takes it and had flick really is great though that follows it because it's kind of this disarming. I just did something really provocative. Oh what me kind of moment were then. She bryce saunters off that whole sequence really is prime dietrich eric but especially i think just that pause which we've talked about is something unique to dietrich and your pick as well holding the frame <hes> not having to do you much at all now being on frame. I don't know how many actors pause as long as her hold the frame as long as she does so that's my best dietrich moment that brings us to our best von sternberg moment. Is it possible that one of us is going to dare to pick on sternberg moment. That doesn't involve marlene dietrich. We will see starting with the guys. I'm hoping one of you picks up the slack by mentioning some amazing tracking shot or some prolonged dissolve love or some moment of elaborately designed as on san because really how can you even choose for me somewhat arbitrarily and not all that originally i have to go with a moment of light and shadow that of von sternberg smu's marlene dietrich in the train car toward the end of shanghai express as she stares upward upward cigarette in hand cloaked in darkness except for one beam of light which is creating that distinct shadow of butterfly under her nose. It's a moment almost ost apart from the rest of the story a moment of transcendent artifice which is how i might generally characterized von sternberg aesthetic see josh. Why did you have to spoil. Nathaniel thunder. Sorry had laid out there and i'm afraid this really is the right answer despite there being so many different moments to choose from this existential crisis that we get from lily in the train car is the standout moment maybe the entire marathon for me and it was tough because i certainly considered sittard choosing a moment deliberately. Were dietrich isn't the focus. She already got her category. We just shared that winner. Let's make it more about him than it is about her or as nathaniel eluded. Do we pick a dissolve or a tracking shot or some river a moment. We got so many of them to consider from this marathon versus. What is a stationary close up now that it's not a bravura moment with the way he uses light and shadow it definitely is but she would go with something a little more active or org ostentatious but at the end of the day. I think marathon has proven to us. That von stauffenberg was all about dietrich. His best work doc is when he is showcasing her and as we touched on during our discussion of the film last week those trembling hands really stood out to me and made an impression and all of those contradiction she is at her most vulnerable in that moment and yet her most alluring. I would say yeah at what i wrote about shanghai express i. I called it a career and a close up. I i mean it. Just it does capture everything. It's absolutely wonderful and one of the reasons. I did have that as her best performance i tried. I tried to split the difference for this category. Sorry <hes> face that choice as well. Do i choose something that focuses on her. Do i go with something that she's not even on the screen..

"My notes dietrich doesn't show up until the forty forty two minute mark and then i realized after that that that was kind of wishful thinking that it's still a sending her down a path. That isn't really the dietrich. We've seen in the other films so so far in this marathon and then i added the note later. Actually she may not show up until the hour eleven mark. I think that's really where we finally see her. It's a line in particular when she says is to the religious figure. I remember what his exact title is but i think she says to him. I think i have weapons that are far more powerful than any political machine and that's where you really feel the great marlene dietrich come out but it's in a scene that appeared on its surface to be very un dietrich like where i did. I would say get on the right wave link with this movie. It's in the stable where all she differ on but hear me out go royal because i'm ultimately justifying it in retrospect. It's not so much the enjoyment of it in the moment okay. I is a case where dietrich's so fi is trying to sort of be seductive with john lodge the way she puts the hey and her mouth and she falls backwards so clumsily in the hey <unk> tumbles on top of her. It's so awkward and absurd nothing remotely sensual about it and honestly not even that funny either but that's where i realized and you use the p. Were josh. You said that maybe it veers into self parody. I'm giving von sternberg and dietrich. Both the benefit of the doubt that this is absolutely parody. That's part of the experiment of this film that they are parroting to an extent the dietrich persona but also this isn't a historical drama like this movies being billed as at all all this is a parody of historical dramas and the self seriousness of them and that's when it clicked for me that so much of what seemed just kind find a silly in was easily dismissable and was excessive before it actually became quite funny to me. I think about all the scenes throughout the film of those preposterously posthumously large doors right you think about the sets on these auricle dramas are always ornate and he says okay. I'm gonna show you ornate ornate. I'm gonna make these doors fifty two hundred pounds each and the people can barely even push them open those really kind of grotesque and overwhelming production design elements like those creatures that they sit in and all those monstrous statue there on them they really are the shot early in the film of salmon ever just laughing about this today it's early in the film when john lodge count alexis shows up and she's now the young girl and she clearly doesn't know a whole lot about about men and he so stunning and rural that when she said off to bed she closes the door but can't stop looking at him and she closes. It's so slowly that it really does become hilarious and i think it's intentionally hilarious that also there's this little trick there that von sternberg somehow pulls off which is as she's is closing the door ever so slowly in theory. We're seeing less of her but the way it's lit. She's actually getting brighter in the frame so we're seeing less of her and more of her at exactly exactly the same time how 'bout later align like when that religious figure is collecting things for the poor and he says to the emperor the crazy you imbecile like emperor. What do you have to give and he slaps him and he says that was for me. Would you have for the poor. You know there are lines like that are clearly meant to be comedic and that's when you can only finally start to at all justify. Sam jaffe is performance or really so many the the performances in the film pause there because go spend suppertime on sam jaffe performance <hes> yes this is this is absolutely parody of genre and <hes> but there are the two distinctions..

Have you been in touch with yeah. I i wouldn't they own waited outside the hospital last week. I just see you broke didn't read my letter had been allowed to visit you had they let me every day i would have been there every day we do we have rests on it had library three and a half years ago that i'm not sure that was here nightly and james mcevoy capturing just a little bit of the long unit. I think you and i really brought to that scene. From i'm twenty tens atonement christopher hampton wrote the screenplay which was adapted from the ian mcewan novel the movie directed by joe right that massacre was part of a show where we reviewed jennifer kesse the nightingale we also had the second film in our dietrich von sternberg marathon nineteen thirty two's morocco. What is atonement have have to do with any of that well. Let's see what listeners came up with. Dave bombing in appleton wisconsin wrote in one of the main characters brian. He becomes a nurse over the course of the film florence. Nightingale is usually considered the founder of modern nursing. The focus of this episode of film spotting was the new film the nightingale hey hey i got nothing else says sorry yeah. No that wasn't it. Rory done said connections include a film about a woman finding her way in the world with little regard to what damage she does along the way also both atonement and the nightingale our second kim films from british directors that are follow ups to critically acclaimed debut is kent british or she australian great question josh you will use use google while i read our next comment from laura ellis in san miguel de linde mexico. I guess the connection is a male protagonist going to war. Though gary cooper's french foreign legion was trying to put down an insurrection in morocco and james mcevoy was going to brussels early in world war two of course the great dunkirk seen in atonement. I'm i'm sorry rory from the quick. Googling i do can't does appear to be australian. Okay well critically acclaimed debut second films close enough rory but none of that was really what we were thinking sam producer just going with the most basic connection of josef von sternberg morocco and a toilet both tragic love stories more or less josh shirt it's all we needed so adam from roden with this little seen himself. He's from brunswick maine. Why don't you go ahead and in play the combined role of adamant josh and rebecca. I'll play adamant from josh you start. Are you ready okay.

"Image an an actual new images created and the key one that i would point to is an early one in the film where we are seeing the corridor of the train and the dissolve all this cutting to a shot from believe it's on the tracks with chinese soldiers on the sides of the track and he overlays them in such a way that then looks looks like the chinese soldiers are standing on the sides of the train corridor instead of just on the tracks there actually incited which is actually kind of suggestive of what is eventually going to happen and i remember not too long ago. I think it was last year. Watching david leans brief encounter another train centric movie for the first time and and seen the very same thing where a new image would be credited the dissolves and thinking wow this must be some sort of landmark technique and here we are that was forty five if you're more than a decade earlier and von sternberg is already employing <hes> this it's a real magic trick and yeah it's beautiful. It is now the framing as as well and the way frames are employed within the camera frame. I think is also really notable here and you notice it probably even before this but where it really stuck out to me was in the introduction scene not to each character but the introduction of the relationship between doc and lily where the camera is if i recall correctly outside the train and it's looking in on them straight on and they're both standing next to each other and there's the frame of the window that is cutting them in half. They're both framed by their windows but then they're cut in half they're separated and you realize though that there probably inhabiting the exact ax same space but somehow the frame cutting them in half does keep them at a distance suggests that there is this divide between them and you look at so many frames teams in this movie not just those different train cars that we see where it almost becomes like us looking through windows at them but i can't believe i'm going to use this word here here. I don't think it's probably ever been uttered. In film spotting history. The frames are often bifurcated so that it does just like in that instance it separates the characters and draws attention to the construction of these spaces and i think it then also draws our attention to the construction that is whatever is separating reading these people class. They're standing in society their race perhaps they're all artificial construct and he is constantly making us aware of that through through the use of those frames yeah you would think you know this being the first film we've seen the first out of the three that didn't involve any sort of cl- nightclub atmosphere or theater atmosphere that that element might have been lost but in a lot of ways he doubled down on it without the actual theater yeah absolutely and i a._m. Hesitant here enclosing to suggest that this film somehow is truly an apotheosis of all of their work or their collaborations together because there's a few other films that we haven't seen yet and we're not going to get to as part of this marathon but i do think having watched three films we can safely say that von von sternberg is obsessed with the utter irrationality of love and i do think shanghai express is the most complete i suppose exploration of that irrationality i won't go into a full rehash of the other two films but we talked about wrath in the blue angel almost not having a choice but to go after lola gives up everything everything to go after her and in morocco. It's the opposite it's a me who almost acts like she's under a spell and just can't leave tom alone and has to be with him. I'm she can't perform. She can't eat and runs out of that dinner as i mentioned and wrath starting as a professor right he's an academic. He's a man who relies on his head. Not his is hard and we get here. The doctor who is a man of science who is a man of intellect to believes only what he sees and that's paired paired against not only lily but the missionary carmichael who believes has faith despite not being able to see what he believes in. I don't think it's probably by accident. That carmichael is always wearing glasses in the movie and that dr harvey almost gets punished by being blinded. He's not being von. Sternberg isn't being too subtle subtle. They're probably.

"Quote candy confection artifice nonetheless. Thanks guys thank you as always nathaniel. Absolutely i think anyone watching this film was going to recognize nuys the problematic elements but for me. I don't know about you josh. They definitely weren't a distraction here and it's something that i was talking about a little bit with our producer sam on slack earlier today he adored this movie five stars out of five rushed today on letterbox and i think he really nailed it. He said that maybe because because it seemed to come more from the racist slash flawed characters than from the film itself and i think there is some truth to that but also beyond just being a product of its time i i agree with what nathaniel mention that von sternberg is so uninterested in reality actual geopolitics revolution in china that you really really do have shanghai expressed through his ostentatious lens all of these films. We've seen so far have been rooted in fantasy. You take the exotic settings right morocco china in a here. The train itself becomes its own world with his own set of rules not unlike the blue angel with those expressionistic touches and like the trained club is another world an escape from school and from more traditional societal institutions. I think even just looking at dietrich in the way she dresses in all of these films. She comes out of another galaxy. Gotta todd i really do so. She's more exotic just in her appearance than any of these locations shins but to cut to the chase here. I definitely think this the best film of the marathon so far and the argument i'm going to go with. Let's see if it works on you. Josh is that this is the movie where we finally achieve steve balance artistic balance and storytelling balance both the blue angel and morocco we felt were rewarding and they had moments of brilliance <music> but there was something a little bit lopsided in both in the blue angel no matter how much we disagreed a little bit but no matter how much we do don't pity wrath the professor at the end of the film dietrich's. Lola is basically fem fatale. We never really understand what's motivating her feelings for him and von sternberg is focused more on the madness that she she provokes in wrath and his fall despite that it was dietrich who eclipsed von sternberg for us is the artist. We couldn't wait to see more from in the marathon you go to morocco their filmmaking elements. I think are definitely more sophisticated than we see in the blue angel but dietrich again shine brightest despite being hobbled by a script and a performance by gary cooper that never really stoked any romantic passion and here dietrich's. Amy is the one at the end who subordinates herself to the man and makes the ultimate sacrifice resigns herself to a life following him and that brings us to shanghai express nathaniel said it her will simply won't be bent for a man even one she loves dearly which doesn't just make her a more complex feminist character imax or more complex character period area and it makes the central romance conflict between her and doc so compelling i think so shanghai express elevates dietrich's character without reducing clive brooke as dr harvey but we also see von stromberg's craft elevated. I saw your two word review on letterbox josh. You asked if it was peak doc dietrich. I think rhetorically in this marathon anyway this peak dietrich merging with for reasons. I'm sure will detail peak von sternberg each artist and their respective styles come together to create something distinct and really dazzling well. That's why i'm going to probably disagree with your take aac while loving the film just as much. I think what's so crazy about this movie is it's so far out of balance like it's to the point where story almost doesn't even matter and yeah i take. I take your point that von sternberg for reasons we will get into how he is crafting her persona but for me. This is is just her completely shifting all the balance around her je..

"To underserved at star and director thanks in part to the underwhelming co-star into a narrative that maybe didn't earn its grand grand final gesture both to the diminishment of dietrich's otherwise strong willed character and in spite of all its visual splendor. I think it's possible to feel that shanghai express rests commits similar sins with sometimes clumsy dialogue about the relationship of love and faith and a slightly awkward late film tonal shift from romantic melodrama almost playful tale of pursuit to say nothing of its oriental ism and use of yellow face all of these elements. Could i suppose takeaway from yet another other widely bewitching performance from dietrich as well as from what is perhaps on sternberg at his best all frames within frames and tracking shots down corridors shadows that was in light and protracted dissolves however i also found myself swayed by film scholar homemade king in her fantastic interview include you didn't criterion set who urges us not to deny this film's problem areas but also not to hold the film to the standards of realism urging us instead to look at it as has fiction quote which it is pure baroque mannerist candy confection artifice and then from there think about what the film is doing so so for instance. Amy may wong's character. Yes exhibits certain problematic racial stereotypes but she's also a formidable figure in her own right one one of two women in the film along with dietrich's shanghai lily who's force of will will not be bent to that of men. I would say that at least in this specific regard shanghai express feels dust like the anti morocco so i'm interested in hearing the experience you both had with the film did you also also finds certain areas of weakness today at all impede your enjoyment of shanghai express or did you find yourself acknowledging those problems spots but then appreciating dietrich dietrich von sternberg.

I don't even skittles. I guess she got emma stone. Fifty one point two jessica chastain fifty one point three amy adams fifty three jennifer lawrence fifty eight then. There's the jump here in these scores that i don't understand scarlett johansson seventy point four but winning the decade dominance algorithm is is lupita younger with seventy one about that so having hardly listen to anything you sad. I'm guessing this is just a star skewing right well. Jake does acknowledge that. Does that does include her. Completely unrecognisable turns in the force awakens the last jedi. That's helping her box office number but hey she has the credit so you know maybe we could do a little a bit more parsing of the numbers here and see how it comes out. We will not go through all of the entries here josh again indifference to keeping you awake but jake says i was also curious to see if anyone you left off could beat those numbers so let's just go with some of the ones who would have emerged ahead of the people we did list elizabeth olsen sixty three point to being a lot of marvel movies obviously really helped that zoe saldana same sixty two point two re larson fifty seven point three also same same d._c.

"This work with microsoft is for him <music> end so that's helpful for what i wanted to get to about the ending i really liked this movie's portrait of marriage how it eventually gets to it and when we think about marriage judge in films a lot of times are romances in general. It's that this person has to what complete the other person right. They're gonna make them happy just by who they are are and there's there's sort of like there's nothing outside of those two people when in reality and what this film i really emphasizes is that it's more more to be a cheerleader of the other person to support them. Give them the space and the opportunity to be their best selves whatever that might mean so for him it. His work at microsoft is good. Maybe he led it. He gave it too much space himself but also for bernadette without this creative outlet without him supporting her to to be able to be mentally in the space to pursue that she can't live she we see that like she just can't live of and they find this space together at the end where that becomes kind of the point of their marriage obviously be their child is a is a they talk about her <unk> as a miracle and i was gonna say project but it's somewhere in between she. She's this miracle that bernadette and he created together some they can work on together. It gives them as much meaning in their lives and it's a shared thing but they also have those things individually and so their jobs are to let each other pursue those and be encourages pursuit.

It did with me as well. I think you said it very well and it kinda ties in with some of the things we've been discussing and may discuss more. We're here in a little bit with this dietrich von sternberg marathon which is how do you engage in a romance. How do you truly partner with someone but retain your individuality -ality. This movie suggests that that's the only way you should go about it that that whole idea of completing someone suggests that without the other person you're incomplete and the reality the is both of these people could lead vital fulfilled lives on their own. They're better when they're together. I think ideally make that clear..

Thank you nathaniel especially for that perfectly delivered. I'm usually i get that right. I'm just going to use that as much as i can. During our review review here i'm going to double down on what nathaniel suggested and say that for me i think he's right for one thing and for me i would even go so far as to say that final shot which is exquisite visually gorgeous new also personifies what really bothered me about about this movie of it was that i think we're all major sold me on what a me.

I liked it overall and i do want to get to those but i do think this is a near fatal flaw and for a couple of reasons. I just don't want to see this character who has been define wind similarly to lola lola in the blue angel as a woman who is sure of herself determined values her independence in a lot of ways at the peak of doing that. I didn't that sequence. The tuck sequence ah the peak of doing that is diminished in my mind for the rest of the film and it's not necessarily because of the choices she makes but it's more because i don't see the motivation to pursue tom tom in the same way that i see for him to somewhat pursue.

He says undone in steady hand to for the road. Does what only a Hollywood movie can do it convince you to beautiful movie stars tooling through France and car are just like us. It's everybody's marriage. That's on trial in this film. If you've ever failed to let a fight go or said one thing too many or kept silent rather than apologize. You're likely to recognize a bit of yourself in the shards of the Wallace's the point about how they're just like us the scene that I think does that. So well is when they are forced to stay in the chichi hotel and have to kind of dodge around the fact that they can't afford to tell the restaurant.

I know it's not your choice though, Josh. And you know, what it's also not the choice of another guest. We have teased at last week that my daughter Sophie has been watching all of these films with me the first film finding marathon any of my children have fully participated in. And she wanted to play along and weigh in with her choice for best picture. I'm Sophie Manar in my awards for best picture goes to funny face. I was sucked in soon as the bundle of pink fabric hits the camera during the opening number it sets the tone for the whole movie fun wins ical, vibrant that. Coupled with an excellent performance from Audrey Hepburn led to experience where to quote, my dad. I couldn't wait to rewatch it as I was watching it. So there's my daughter quoting me quoting same van Haldeman? But that's fine. We'll go with it all goes round and round. Well, I knew Sophie was sharp. But this seals the deal. I mean, she she got the pick. Right. Funny faces the best picture of this marathon. I'll admit I probably enjoyed charade as much while watching it. But I think for me funny face has those musical production numbers that just are going to put it over the top. If you're comparing the two not only what I've already mentioned in these awards, but how about on how to be lovely that satirical, duet with Hepburn and Kate Thomson. I think that one really is crucial because it undercuts some of the movies fashion fascination that that they got into labout. That's great. Irene George Gershwin's. He loves and she loves I don't think we talked about this when we reviewed it at all. But this is where Hepburn an Astaire are at an. Outdoor wedding photo shoot. And they dance their way across a stream by lightly stepping onto a floating raft. I mean, here's another almost over the top Don touch could have been a pick for physio seen as well. So funny face. It's just stuffed with production numbers. Most of them quite delightful. Domine, of course, will forever be known for co directing singing in the rain. But I do think funny face has deserves a place in the top tier musicals conversation. Well, it's my runner up certainly for this marathon film. I did enjoy and has so many of those great done in moments. And touches that's our marathon. Are thanks again to Sophie to Nathaniel, of course, for all of his insights and launching all of these conversations. We hope you enjoyed this marathon whether you were following along or not and able to watch every film, we do have another marathon coming up. We don't have the date set exactly for when it will commence, but we're going to take a look at the work of Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich that collaboration. You can find.

Their former home sat empty and decaying the teams famous mascot UP even went to work for the Montreal Canadians because even furry orange monsters gotta eat. The idea of the Expos of a major league team in the heart of Montreal the modern monument to a sport with deep history in the province that never entirely vanished. There were always a few people some of them loudly and most of them very quietly keeping the fires burning mostly they were dreaming. But sometimes they were planning for the Tim's eventual return, and somehow that return might happen. The sport of baseball has changed. The city of Montreal has changed the business of sport in general has changed an unbelievably as cities around North America. Celebrate baseball's opening day today. It is beginning to seem like the team that never really went away is suddenly very close to coming back. How did this happen? How real is it? What does baseball mean to Montreal to Quebec or to Canada? And we'll those fans who refused to abandon their team. Even after their team, abandoned them finally get their happy ending. I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Jeff Blair is the host of the Jeff Blair show on sports net. Five ninety the fan. He is the co host of the lead podcast with Stephen Brent knows a lot about baseball in Montreal because he covered the Expos for the zette for about a decade and for the global mail after that so it's opening day to day. There's no baseball in Montreal today. Not yet. But Montrealers are very excited this week. Why is that? Well, I think they should be excited. I mean, I covered the Expos from eighty eight to ninety seven on a full-time basis. And I was there when when the team ended up leaving town part of a franchise swap that saw the Expos go to Washington and saw the ownership of the Boston Red Sox in my and Miami Marlins change as part of the process at that time. There was very little support from the local business community. There were there was a very small collection of minority partners who were in for maybe million two million dollars a year, very small. They had been effectively bought out in a leveraged buyout by Jeffrey Loria was a New York art dealer who came in and saw that I think at the end of the day ended up putting in about twenty five million US of his own money into that team and that up buying it. And then when he sold the Marlins that was for one point three billion any that's but at that time. Time when when the Expos left the Commissioner was committed at the time, but ceiling was committed to bringing baseball back to Washington. It was it was a legacy thing for him. The Expos has I mentioned had no local corporate support. There was no political support. I mean, they didn't have a political champion in the mayor's office. They they had no political champions provincially as a matter of fact, when you know, I think when you talk to people who are involved in sort of the post Charles Bronfman area era, the expo is one of the things they'll say is that they were affectively screwed by p q government. There was just there were there was there was there was no reason to keep the Expos and much there. There is a plan to build a new ballpark was completely stillborn. So there was absolutely no reason for the Expos to stay in town. And of course, attendance it had had decreased while fast forward. Now, you have a new Commissioner rob Manfred. Who also even though he's only been inter for few years. Just thinking of his legacy and his legacy is in. Internationalizing the game. You've seen baseball games. Played in Japan. Baseball will play a game at Lord's Cricket Ground. This year the Red Sox and the Yankees. And rob Manfred has said that he thinks Montreal is a viable baseball market. He also thinks Mexico City's viable baseball. Mark in Montreal itself. You have a really well-funded core ownership group, Stephen Bronfman of Claridge investments, the son of Charles Bronfman and Mitch Garber who's kind of a fascinating guy. Mitch when I first met him. He's a lawyer his uncle was a lawyer who represented a lot of Expos players in and around Montreal Tim Raines, he keeps kind of a fixer for them. And I I mean that in a positive way Mitch also hosted a radio show late night. I mean, he was a dabbler really talented guy. He is now president of Caesars acquisitions international, essentially lives in Monaco. And he's on the French CBC French language version of dragons. Dan. He's he's he's a very he is shaker and mover. He was I believe I don't know if he's still as he was CEO of Cirque du Soleil at one point he's got a lot of money scuttle resume. He's got and he's and he's and he's a billionaire. He and Stephen Bronfman both known each other for while that they have they've kept the dream of baseball in Montreal alive. They done it very quietly as is their manners people. They're both fairly quiet, quiet. People very quietly. They had Denny co dare when he was mayor of Montreal who is a huge baseball. I mean, he's an he's a nut. But he's a huge baseball fan. And he you know, he was show up at every baseball event. The all star game the World Series it show up at the Commissioner's office. He he'd go to the Expos or the Blue Jays games every spring spring training just to kind of fly the flag and lobby for and lobby for a team to return to Montreal and the provincial government, both the liberal government. And the new government are very the very comfortable with the idea of entertaining, some sort of public private partnership. So what we have now is. Commissioner who views internationalizing the game as an important part of his legacy. We have people in Montreal ton of money. What we don't have as a team revolt park. Obviously we have Olympic state, and we don't have a team or ballpark. Well, this is going on the tap. The Tampa Bay rays have been have been trying for twenty twenty-five years to get a ballpark built. They play at Tropicana field in Saint Pete. So horrible ballpark that, you know, their their attendance is routinely the worst in the league somewhat bizarrely. They have one of the best TV contracts in the league. But their attendance is generally pretty poor. They have attempted to build a ballpark in different parts of Tampa. The the providence Saint Pete right now is that Tampa's where the growth there is in the area east of Tampa north Tampa. That's where the growth is. Unfortunately to get the Saint Pete you base give a choice of two bridges. So during rush hour access to Saint Pete from Tampa is essentially it's the worst place you could imagine in the region right ballpark last year. There seemed to be finally at least for the people in Tampa. There seemed to be memento. Adam behind building a ballpark in ebor city, which is to to the eastern part of the city. It's an old old warehouse area. And I I hadn't been paying attention to it at baseball's winter meetings or something happened it collapsed. I don't know what I don't know the exact majority just collapsed. So the winter meetings in baseball where everybody in baseball gathers media general managers owners, it's it's kinda like a swap shop trades or made sometimes free agents or talked about and all that there was a news conference call by Stuart Sternberg with the owner of the race and his president, which if you've got something you wanna float as if you've got a trial balloon you wanna float in baseball. You do it at the winter meetings because everybody who writes talks thinks about baseball is there, right? They held a news conference. You know, blah, blah, blah stadium issue in Tampa. We still have a lease at Tropicana field the twenty twenty four twenty until twenty twenty-seven dot that up. But and this was was was very subtle. And I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been tipped off about this by a raise official the raise owner. Said listen, we're not getting a park built in tap. We do have a lease right now until twenty twenty seven Saint Petersburg prime real estate in terms of building condos mixed business residential area. I mean, it is a it is a gold mine for raising tax. If there's a crappy building city there's a crappy building sitting on it that we're going to be gone from an in in ten years. So what he did what Stuart Sternberg did was he kind of flipped it a bit. And said, here's the thing. Yeah. We could be here twenty twenty seven. But man, if you guys get an offer between now and then for this parcel a land who knows what the economy's going to look like in twenty twenty seven right? Could be better could be worse. So centrally what he said is. Hey, if you guys get a good offer for this. You know, I'd be willing to cut you deal here to to to help you finish this off. Please. Let me go, please. Let me go. So well that's going on, you know, the folks in Montreal again, very quietly quietly, very diligently. Claridge investments is involved in purchasing land in Griffin town part of Montreal. Which is. Near the peel basin. It's it's kind of an area that's undergoing gentrification. So you've got that. Now, you've got a Tampa Bay rays owner. Who knows he's not gonna stay there? Now, you've got people with money in Montreal in a ballpark. You've got a Commissioner who is committed to this one of the things the tappan though as well, as in addition to all that sort of falling in place, one of the things rob Manfred, the Commissioner says look I realized the reality of the situation now is I'm not going to ask you to build a ballpark. And then give you a team he cited Quebec, cities, and example, building an arena. No NHL team. You said not gonna do that. I just need see the plans. I didn't need the shovel in the ground show me the financing show me the plans haven't nailed down. And we'll try to get a team in. Montreal. Stuart Sternberg owns the raise lives in New York. So what kind of happened in the past couple of months? People started to realize well who says Stuart Sternberg has to sell the raise or Montreal has to get an expansion team. What a Stuart Sternberg said moved the race to Montreal. I live in New York. It's not a big flight. Maybe. I wanna be a majority partner. But maybe I want twenty percent. Maybe bell media comes in for twenty percent char or Stephen Bronfman and Mitch Garber have thirty percent each and away we go. So all these things have kind of have fallen in place if you'd asked me for years ago. I would've said there's no chance of baseball returning to much you're on my lifetime. Now, I'd be stunned. If there isn't a major league team in Montreal within the next six or seven years five years might be a little tight, but just sort of planning this thing out of that. I can see baseball back in Montreal in six seven years at the outside. I'll be surprised if it isn't

"And he said welcome back coach. And I think that that's where this is headed that was Nick's Twee. You look at it. It's very obvious. Jason wins future was not in the broadcast booth. We all learned that lesson. It was a long is in that regard his future is as an NFL coach. We all realize that his future is still in the game of football. That's who Jason Whitney's people talk about Tony Romo in that regard that doesn't necessarily feel like something that could happen right away. But Jason Witten duds, and you look at this. This allows for that lineage to continue Jason win comes back in a more limited role more veteran role more leadership role mentor ship role. That's the first step. I mean, you look at it. That's what people want to do this season. That's what people kind of. Expect from the savvy veterans Jason win can come back and kind of be that player coach, I'm San Antonio Spurs fan. I live in San Antonio, kind of Tim Dunkin to the cow was that's what he's been forever. And so he can certainly be that and be put on a faster trajectory to becoming an NFL head coach, or at least a coach of some variety versus if he stayed in the booth or things did not go. Well, how ESPN handles this will be very interesting. But that's not what we're here to talk about today again at your joining us. Welcome to Ocho alive, we do alive show every Tuesday and Thursday, we do podcast only episodes on Monday Wednesday and Friday, coincidentally, we had j Sternberg are on the show on Wednesday talked to him about the potential playing for the Dallas Cowboys that might happen might not happen. Because again, if you're joining us late Jason Witten is returning to the Dallas Cowboys it is one year deal. The value of it is conflicted are is conflict in excuse me. Conflicting reports from various NFL insiders. But the very least this seems like something. That most people are down with people are excited to see this Baylor. One on periscope says hire him as a coach. It's a waste of roster spot. I disagree with that. While you know, Jason win isn't going to lead tight ends in receptions, or yards or touchdowns by any means. He can still be of extreme value. I think that we know that Jason win provides value..

"j sternberg" Discussed on The Art of Charm
"More powerful they are short but they are mighty to check those out thanks for listening and supporting the art of charm let's get back to the toolbox with jordan the use of charm and observation is the third one this one is near and dear to my heart for obvious reasons but this strategy focuses on using charisma and perceptiveness to win the approval and good graces of authority figures this behavior might be a way to earn someone's personal affection or loyalty outside of the work in question or be recognized as special in some way in this strategy work sometimes but it's no good in the long run once again this only leads to the underlying feelings of fraudulence for one thing if the authority figured does believe that the imposter that's use slash me a special they have a hard time believing it because that assumption of specialness is based on not our competence right but on our personal attributes at the same time we might also believe that if we were truly competent then we wouldn't need someone else's approval in the first place which of course becomes even more evidence that we are actually a fraud so if you've experienced impostors syndrome in your life than the behaviors about of probably sound eerily familiar you might not have engaged in all three but i'm willing to bed at one point or another you adopted some of these techniques to deal with a nagging sense of fraudulence just as i did in the legal world in early on in this very business that you're listening to right now there are of course other elements that play in impostor syndrome and there were touching on john colligan junior and robert j sternberg for example they point out that in addition to fraudulent idea shen people who wrestle with impostor syndrome also tend to exhibit depressive tendencies that's like selfcriticism achievement pressures ding ding ding other researchers have confirmed a correlation between impostor ism and depression and they point to the links between imposture ism and perfection distress and anxiety family backgrounds well those play a role to one team of researchers studied the links between parenting styles and imposture syndrome and found that both lack of parental care and frontal overprotection were linked.
