Why China’s Move to Rein In Hong Kong Is Just the Start
"China's move to exert greater control over the semi independent city of Hong Kong caused more turmoil over the weekend does protesters to fide social distancing rules and clashed with police who fired tear gas and a water cannon arresting at least one hundred eighty people critics of. Beijing's move to impose a national security law on Hong Kong. Say that it is an attempt to stifle descent putting an end. The city's independence. The White House said yesterday that China will likely face sanctions for its actions in Hong Kong. So admiral the China is becoming more aggressive by day. Fairly remarkable if you look at it just in recent history that they are responsible for the unleashing of a pandemic that has wrecked the world. Economy killed So many people. We don't know where that death count is going to end up and instead of being back on their heels or working aggressively for a vaccine or are reaching out to the world community. They are actually Acting more aggressive whether it's toward Hong Kong toward Vietnam or even in the concentration camps inside their country what what is going on what. How is the United States failed in its response to Shave Power? And why in the world can we do moving forward? Let's start with the premise. Here let's go back to twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty nineteen teams like a long time ago. We already had a rich basket of disagreement. China South China Sea huge body of water. China claims it in its entirety. Five G. The network controversy as you mentioned the territorial disputes around the edges of the South China Sea with Vietnam the Philippines Taiwan additional pressure on them trade and tear disputes. So we have this very rich. Unfortunately basket of disagreement. Now you drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of that which is called Kobe. Nineteen irresponsibility of the regime in allowing that to get into the wild so to speak. And so you really have this witches brew of relationships and Newsflash. It's occurring during an election year in the United States in which the trump administration predictably is going to maximize the ability to use China. Like opinion OUGHTA and beat it for electoral advantage. So terrible fact pattern. At the moment I think the real question you nailed it show is. What do we do about it? And I'll tell you three things very quickly. I we need a strategy that means not just episodic responses but thinking about diplomacy economics military deterrence bringing that Inter Agency sensibility to the challenges of China. Secondly even more important. We need international coalition. That's all of our allies. In the Pacific and many Japan South Korea Australia New Zealand Malaysia Singapore Thailand be at Phnom Increasingly. We need to internationalize the response to China and that includes the response to co did in third and finally we need to recognize. We've got a bend this relationship with China. We've got to change the terms of it. But we don't want to break it. I E get ourselves stumbling into a Cold War. It's going to be complicated and from now to November is going to be a very difficult stretch water. Well as you talk about. Strategy the United States needs to develop a long-term strategy. We just need to start by having a coherent message to send to the Chinese. We've been so erotic if you look at the president's fawning praise of President Shea and of course we always talk about what he said on January twenty four th when he thanked president she for his transparency and all the great work China was doing. That was a bizarre tweet to send out at the time. This is also the same president. Who who saluted she for consolidating power in the past has more power than anybody since Chairman Mao in that country? But you have that fawning praise one moment Max moment you have a continuation of these erratic trade skirmishes where the president doesn't have an overall strategy and then follow that up with occasional master tweets and insults toward the people of China just because seems to be checking that off his list for the campaign. It's really hard to figure out where Donald Trump stands when it comes to China because any any attack of China any critique of China is usually followed up by the president talking about what a wonderful leader Person President Xi is exactly and reference our earlier conversation. What do you want leaders to do? You want them to bring order. Out of the chaos. He want them to have a plan. You want them to communicate in steady waves and what we don't want to do with China is treated like an on and off switch on the wall that we turn on. Oh we love China. Then we turn it off ups. We're going to get into a war with China. We've got a dial it in. It's like estate like the dimmer on the wall. In your dining room we have got to be able to have a coherent strategy. That is steady and finds balance not this jagged on and off. Switch all the time and again. I'll close on this Henry Kissinger said late last year that we were in the foothills of a Cold War I think we are continuing to ascend that mountain. It is a mistake for both nations. We need to confront where we must when the behavior warrants but we ought to try and find ways to cooperate where we can confront where we must cooperate where we can build a strategy Admiral Stavridis. Thank you very much for coming on this morning

We WE CALL PAJAMAS IN PAJAMAS. The word itself just makes you feel good. I dare you to say pajamas. And not like some warm fuzzies. Come over you. You can say with me now pajamas. Now for many of us are pajamas. Are something that we put on again. It's a it's tied to a neurosurgeon for relaxation. For SETTLING DOWN AND FOR GETTING SLEEP. It's all connected and our brains association. Our brain is always looking for patterns. It's always looking for associations and a longer we do a behavior the more ingrained or the more mylan gets laid down making that habit or their behavior more permanent in our minds so now all of a sudden if we're just living in our pajamas we're just my son. Brayden was just walking around his pajamas. My wife to she went outside. She got like the Wednesay Pajama. She went outside but just like walking around. You know so.

This is largely done in our unconscious. Subconscious mind now. The researchers took a photograph of test subjects after normal sleep and another photographed after limiting their sleep for two nights in a row and now they had. Raiders look at a rate of randomized photographs. Summer including when people are sleep deprived and when they're well rested and consistently the raiders rated photos of people who are sleep deprived as less attractive less healthy and they were less inclined to want to socialize with them just based off of whether or not somebody was sleep deprived their appearance based on that and another study found that sleeping less than six hours a night for five nights in a row caused fine lines and wrinkles to increase by forty five percent also blemishes went up by fifteen percent and redness increased by nearly ten

Maya De Vitry's "How to Break a Fall" Track by Track
"Hello and welcome to folk where we have honest conversations with folk musicians. It's Cindy House Here we are is a great to be here. Thanks for listening I am pumped about our guest today. Mike vitry she has a new record out and she's going to do a track by track for us Which we will get to very very soon. I will tell you a little bit about my victory. If you do not know she used to be in a band called the stray birds and she is not in that band anymore. The band originally from Lancaster Pennsylvania. Maya lives in Nashville these days and she has quietly released one of the best records of the year back in. March the album. How to break a fall on the podcast today? She goes through the album track by track with us. The record ranges in sound from Gazi beauties too sick grooves to jagged rock. Bangers there are a lot of themes on this record. Like celebrating women and reclaiming your own self and your body. It fully acknowledges past Traumas in Unique Metaphors for instance. There's a song called baking bread for the circus. It's about survival in an abusive situation. The circus being like the show where there is darkness behind the stage and the bread is whatever you need to do to survive the circus. Maya breaks down this and all of the tracks in insightful and entertaining conversation. She was one of my favorite people and musicians. Everything she creates and says totally blows me away. And I'm so glad to get her back on the podcast and if you haven't listened to Maya's first appearance on basic folk. Make sure you go back. She's on episode eleven. I've linked it on my website Just want you to be as obsessed with my individually as I am. Listen on and I guarantee you'll be all about this amazing person. We get a track by track by Maya Dimitri on Basic Bob. It's so funny. 'cause like doing like social distancing. I feel like really sick of myself and like not amused with myself. So like digging into your record and hearing about all the themes was made me feel like maybe. I'm just being just a little judgmental on myself but I'm happy to I'm happy to like dig deep into your album. It's really it's really good. Thanks so the record is called how to break a fall. It was released on March thirteenth. And so there are a lot of themes. On this record celebrating women women reclaiming their own selves and their own body so before we dig deep into like what each song his is about. I was wondering if you could talk about like what your feelings on being a woman are like. And maybe how has your relationship with your gender changed like if it changed at all after this album? I think the album was my way to process on things and so yeah I think it is different now. I think it was a lot of the album is like a self examination and excavation and you know holding myself accountable to have deeper self belief and kind of letting go of a lot of these paradigms and belief systems and things that were really internalized and really ingrained in me not necessarily from any specific person in my life but just over time like our culture and media and then different relationships and I think a lot of a lot of it is as a as a woman like holding yourself accountable as a woman and to know that a lot of a lot of our strength comes from reorganizing our interior and knowing knowing that that is that work is up to us. And it's very private and it's very it can be shared and it can be a collective kind of thing but instead of like instead of leading with like some kind of outward anger or rage I think my process has been yet to just reorganize kind of from the inside out and and that's a personal journey but I think it's. It's also in this record in on these songs. It's something that I was exploring like from other perspectives to and other other stories of women in that process and Like a lot of female artists in that process. And what that. Just look what that kind of thing feels like to live through a. Can you talk about the different perspectives? You're taking into account. Yeah so one of the perspectives. One of the The people who I don't personally but this author sue monk Kidd really influenced this record. She wrote a book called the dance of the dissident daughter and this book is about her journey. She was For a long time she was like a writer in basically just An a Christian tradition and she had this epiphany and the middle of her life in the middle of her career about the fact that she didn't have any any feminine divine presence to Lean On. It wasn't like any and so even if even if Basically she was she was realizing that there is something deep within her kind of embedded from the Christian tradition to lean on and look for approval from the cultural father. Whatever that is and whether that's like a a you know a man or whether it's just Some kind of male dominated culture or space. That women are not in Lake not even not invited or welcome but just like not present because of the because it may be as space that hasn't traditionally been open to women and so so that I was I was reading that and I was processing a lot of my own and kind of unpacking a lot of my own experiences in pleasing the cultural father and what that meant for me and whether it was people I had worked with in the music business so far people I had played music with And then people like even not as close to me but you know some random guy and and feeling that I needed to have some kind of approval or some kind of you know that I needed to be okay by that person and that was this conscious thing that had been running through me for. I don't know how but it was. It was really unsettling and and when I started to read her book and it was like you know it's like if you find a book that is like kind of you could use it as a map for your own thing. At that time it's very it can be really unsettling and so that's one person in in

He was in the eighty second airborne and a he was a Jag officer as well too. So a military lawyer And my brother sister or at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then my dad moved up to buffalo to start his own private practice as an attorney so I was born here in Buffalo born and raised here and Most of my career. I spent seven years at a at a breakfast restaurant here. Most people are aware of if you've ever heard of the original Pancake House. Yeah I spent seven years as a kid started when I was first job. I worked at a P. It's a place I was fourteen years old. I made five bucks cash under the table and I they let me run the police that it was just kind of just got it at an extremely young age and learned how to deal with people then started as a dishwasher at original pancake.

North of Buffalo. Was that about right? Yeah so Niagara Falls is right there. But Buffalo's got a really cool young vibe to it Especially as you get down into the city. Downtown so If they've had a really good kind of revitalization of the city over the last five six years and it's really taken this kind of artistic beautiful and just driven approach to making the city. Great you know the the food culture here is amazing. The People here are great. It's called the city good neighbors and and I love it. Here this is this is certainly western. New York is is my home and a Lotta. Yeah and it's very different Then you know people when they think of New York they think of New York City. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit but there's so much more to the states of New York and Michigan than people realize because they just focus on that one area buffalo in western New York people. Are you say you must go to New York City all the time like seven and a half hours away from here? I can make it to Chicago in almost the same amount of time per se and I can be in West Virginian. Yeah exactly so. It's very different but I encourage. I don't work for the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce but and I'm getting no money from them for this interview but I can't tell you that it's a good place to visit if you're looking for places to go The summer or even in the wintertime. Because you you work at a country club but it also acts as a ski resort to my correct about that though so where I live. I live in a town about an hour. South of Buffalo called Eligibility York and it is awesome magical Kurowski town and there's two ski resorts that are so why I snowboard side. Love the winters play. Before this I worked I managed a restaurant in ski jump on so my busy season was winter and now the golf course. That's kind of flipped the script you know so I enjoy winter a little bit more so now but definitely work a little bit harder in the summertime now but no but we're connected I mean like I said I live in his ski town which is awesome. Actually New York has the most ski resorts I think out of any state country number wise. And it's great out here okay. That's great so now you are the GM of the Brier Country Club and we've established that you've worked at the International not the International House pancakes but the original house of pancakes. And that's kind of. Yeah and that's how you got started In your professional life How is it that you went from early management? Even though you shouldn't have been managing that original house of pancakes how did you get from there to the GM of the brier would country club? I can give you a little outline and just kinda how it went so Actually have a history degree. I played Lacrosse in college. I got a scholarship to pull les division to Ross at Franklin Pierce University I was always a history nerd. Grownups and I didn't really know what I wanted to do So my my major. I just decided to take history. I liked it. I played the cross. I thought I'd be the cool history teacher and coach at the school Had that kind of plan out but then I realized that time I kind of liked history. More a hobby rather than something. I wanted to do every day but at that point. I kind of knew I just wanted to do something involving hospitality. Entertainment an Kind of a not a shy guy and I went to small school for comparison. It just know in working in those kind of environments that the original packing house and stuff you just. I just learned how to deal with people but you had to these environments. So that's why I wanted to do so. I graduated. College became a food supervisory Internet. Six flags theme park in Springfield Massachusetts. I were a looney tunes tie and Khaki Pants and a short sleeve blue button down so you have yourself a six flags they mess and those kinds of things and I did that for a summer that I moved back home and I became assistant manager at the ritual. Pancake House at this place. You know the way you come in. It is the busiest Brecca's place all the area and it was one host which was myself still wore Khakis at that time. Couldn't get away from it. I guess And Green Pole and and everybody came in their name on a dry erase for it and that was the wait list for the thing and everybody just stare at you and here. I am this young kid and deal with all these adults different people and everybody's hungry after church. The breakfast in Hama just taught me a great deal of patients and just kind of savviness of just kind of dealing with people of all different ages and expectations
Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers - Scotland
"Setting for this story revolves around the Flan in aisles. Lighthouse the seventy five foot. Lighthouse was constructed between eighteen ninety five and eighteen ninety nine and cost about six thousand nine hundred pounds sterling which is a great British pounds and that's equivalent to about million dollars in two thousand nineteen money The Lighthouse was first lit on December seventh eighteen ninety nine so this lighthouse sits on. I lean more which literally means large island in Scottish Gaelic and is part of the plan. An aisles. A small island chain on the west coast of mainland Scotland. The islands have been devoid of permit residents since the automation of the flat. Isles Lighthouse in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. So Joe Have you ever bad into the Scotland? Scotland or Ireland. I have I have not either. It's like a lot of things it's on the list. The aisles provide nesting population of seabirds most notably the Atlantic. Puffins there is also a population of rabbits brought to the island by the lighthouse keepers other than Sea Birds in rabbits. There's no real hostile animals on the on the island so That'll rule out any kind of animal attack in the story. Yeah the island of Eileen more for centuries was regarded as a magical place with cer- a certain powerful aura surrounding it sheep herders. Who are the only ones knowns regularly visit? The island called it the other country and believed to be populated by spirits a fairy folk elves and supernatural beans as well as giant birds. Which were said to prowl the area so sounds like a pretty terrifying island. I actually don't want to visit it now. What's funny is it's really small islands just kind of flat. Yeah I won't say flee it's not like plateau wish but I mean it's not like it's huge and jagged so it's kind of funny to think about you think about people back then and there's not much going on so their imagination goes wild. Yeah that's all I can think of is like if you're a sheep herder and you gotta go to the island with your sheep every now and then like you've nothing else to do in expert thinking about this stuff. Yeah it's probably like a self fulfilling myth they hear it from somebody and then you know they probably morphed into these crazy. Stories of supernatural means giant birds over centuries of elephants. Yeah so Yeah the sheep herders and fishermen who visited the island were said to US special rituals to protect themselves from these magical island inhabitants and were said to communicate with them through a special dialect just for this purpose so these guys taking it serious yeah. They formed their own language to to speak with these spirits. So nine thousand nine hundred style. Lopping yeah there. You Go Even before the incident at the lighthouse there have been several stories about mysterious creatures and other things that gave people pause about the island so it sounds like if you lived back in that time. It's it's not somewhere he'd go with your family for vacation. You'd probably try to avoid the island. Yeah I think it exists solely basically to provide the lighthouse and to keep shifts from basically crashing into this island chain. So we'll talk about the lighthouse keepers of the. Eileen more they had if you can imagine a relatively easy job they worked in shifts with three men on and one enjoying two weeks off at all times. Okay so they're always three guys there in one guy off going back. Home was on the island at the time. The three men working that lighthouse that day. Where James do qat? He's forty three years old. Donald MacArthur Forty and Thomas Marshall. Who's twenty eight so I'm GonNa go right into the time line since it was a long time ago? It's based off of diary entries and captain's logs of the boat that was approaching to relieve a one of the men at the lighthouse. So on December Fifteenth Nineteen Hundred Captain Holman aboard the American steamboat. The Ark tour pass by Eileen Moore and notice that the lighthouse was out of operation so this is December fifteenth home and sent out a wireless telegram informing the mainland of the issue. It was for unknown. Reasons not immediately passed onto the northern Lighthouse board which is who is in charge of administering lighthouse. In addition to this First Oversight The lighthouses regularly monitored by telescope from the nearby. Lewes island by a guy named Roderick. Mackenzie Mackenzie had failed to notice that the light was out. The assumption is that there was thick mist in the area had obstructed views since it was just by a telescope for over a week. Known was sure what had happened on the island so they noticed the light was on the fifteenth. Yeah on December twenty sixth in one thousand nine hundred Captain Jim Harvey was bringing the fourth attendant. Joseph more so that has no relation to the name of the island is just coincidence. That the guy's name was more and they're going to the Eileen more so he was going to the lighthouse as the relief Attendant as the ship approached the island. He noted that something was off the re. The relief flag was not flying and no one was waiting the arrival at the landing of the more so he sounded the whistle on the boat and shot a flare to try and catch lighthouse keepers attention but the island continued to remain silent. So Joseph Moore wrote ashore in a row boat and went up the stairs from the from where he docks the boat that went up to lighthouse and according to reports from more himself. The replacement lighthouse keeper suffered an overwhelming sense of foreboding on his long. Walk up to the top of the cliff so he can almost feel. There is something not right so once at the lighthouse more notice something was immediately wrong the door the lighthouses unlocked and in the entrance hall. Two of three oilskin coats were missing. More continued onto the kitchen area where he found a half eaten food in an overturned chair. Almost as if someone jumped from their seat in a hurry to add to this particular scene the kitchen clock it also stopped more. Continue to search the rest the lighthouse but found no sign of lighthouse keepers. He ran back to the ship to inform Captain Harvey who subsequently ordered a search. The Island for the missing men known was ever found Harvey. This is the captain. The ship quickly sent back telegram to the mainland which in turn was forwarded to the northern Lighthouse Board headquarters in Edinburgh the Telegraph read. A dreadful accident has happened at the Flanigan's the three keepers Kat Marshall and the occasion and the occasional have disappeared from the island on our arrival there. This afternoon. No sign of life was to be seen on the island fired a rocket but as no responses made managed to land more who went up to the station but found no keepers there. The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that an accident must have happened about a week ago. Poor fellows they must bend blown over the cliffs or drawn trying to secure a crane or something like that night coming on. We could not wait to make something as to their fate. I have left more McDonald and boy master in two seamen on the island to keep the light burning until you make other arrangements will not return to Obama until I hear from you. I have repeated this wire to moorhead in case you're not at home. I will remain at the Telegraph office tonight until it closes. If you wish to wire me. So that was his telegram a few days later Robert. Morehead the Board Superintendent who both recruited knew. All three men personally departed for the island to investigate the disappearance. His investigation of the lighthouse found nothing over and above. What more had already reported that is except for lighthouses? Lock so this work. It's interesting muirhead immediately. Noticed that the last few days of entries entries were very unusual on the twelfth of December. Thomas Marshall the second assistant wrote of severe wins the likes of which he had never seen before in twenty years he also noticed that James do cut the principal keeper had been very quiet and that the Third Assistant William MacArthur had been crying. I'm just picturing the scene it. It just reminds me of In movies where there's like people can find somewhere. How before something really bad happens. They're all just acting really strange and yeah. They started to go mad a little bit. Yeah yeah that's that's I I'm with you and that's exactly what I was thinking. So what's really strange about? The final remarks was that William Macarthur was a season Mariner it was known on the Scottish mainland as a tough brawler. So why would he be crying about a storm? And that's I mean if you can just imagine if you go there now yeah I mean bar fights drinking that type of thing so you have this guy here. That's like a big tough guy. You know brought to tears over a storm. I mean initially people from Scotland. There tough tough people. This is a third hand story that someone I know that's from Ireland. Told me you know like when they say tough brawler this happened. I ten fifteen years ago. He was in a bar in Scotland in this American walked in and kind of like a Dorky looking American and ask where the bathroom was and apparently somebody in the park didn't like that and literally bottled him. And that bottling is just. They broke a beer bottle over the back of his head. I don't know the story is true. But that's sound like stereotypical Scotland Bar. Like so I I believe it. Yeah WanNa believe it soccer team just lost and they're pissed off and yeah football team. Mike you'RE GONNA get body falls. Sorry but yeah. They're tough so log entries on the thirteenth December state at the storm is still raging and that offer men had been praying but why would three experience lighthouse keeper safely situated under Brand New Light House? That was one hundred fifty feet above sea level. Be Praying for storm to stop. This should be perfectly safe in theory. Even more particular peculiar is that there were no reported. Storms in the area on the Twelfth Thirteenth Fourteenth of December. In fact the weather was calm in the storms that were to batter. The island didn't hit until December seventeenth. So that's kind of what get strange about this because it's not some island off the mill nowhere. Yeah it's very close to mainland. So they would know if there were storms like that actually occurring at that time. Yeah and like you said they were all very experienced. They were stationed in a brand New Light House. That I'm sure the lighthouse still standing to this

"Perfection. Is it a gift a curse or a little bit of both? I used to think that striving to be a perfectionist was a positive personality trait because it meant paying great attention to detail working hard and diligently aiming for what is best without settling for less but what is perfection and according to home the entire concept implies a hierarchy and a constant judgment of better and worse comparing everything to some ideal or standard to which we are all subjected since birth. Our obsession with perfection starts with getting perfect grades or having the perfect body perfectly round or sharp corners. Perfect teeth architecture. A Perfect Score. Perfect pitch or tone and terms like proper end inappropriate tend to be drawn to symmetry and balance. And I didn't even realize I was judging the world way until I heard the Japanese term Wabi Sabi which actually celebrates `asymmetry rough edges the incomplete the simple and the natural integrity and em- permanence of everything and everyone something isn't deemed beautiful because it's perfect or everlasting its beauty is embedded in its very transients. After years of trying to measure up to one idea of Perfection Wabi Sabi is refreshing. Practice that embraces. What is slightly marred scarred aged nature made and jagged? I'm not just talking about aesthetics. Either the more I think about my own definition of perfection. The more I realized how I've been measuring everything and everyone against impossible standards and I know what you're thinking. Don't we need some standards and to set the bar somewhere well? Wabi Sabi doesn't lower the standard or does away with it. It changes it for me. The shift was from looking at something and contemplating whether it was perfect. Efficient or ideal to simply asking. Does it work? Never mind if it's a little wobbly or doesn't match slightly uneven isn't built to last for decades or slightly off center if it works then it's perfect. There is no English term for Wabi. Sabi could only come up with Russ decor makeshift but neither of those captures the magic of it. All when it took a ceramics class last year and the cereal I made didn't turn out identical to the perfectly round bowls I could buy at any store. I threw it away. I know I completely overlook the fact that my bulls uniqueness is not only what gave value. It would've served its purpose just fine if only I had kept it. I now consider Wabi Sabi an invitation to ease up loosen my grip forget the conventional idea of perfection and stop judging anything as subpar just because it doesn't measure up to dare. I say Western standards. It took travelling to a third world country and witnessing Sabi as a guy on a motorcycle with a broken headlight holding a flashlight in his hand to see the road at night farmers spreading unhusked rice grains from the fields onto the hot pavement to dry in the sun the elderly revered and honored instead of tucked away in retirement home. So we don't have to be reminded of old age mismatch utensils Hendro on street signs and huts that are built entirely out of old plastic bottles. It's like everyone was a modern day macgyver or genius out of necessity and guess what it works so stop expecting perfection from others. I mean it's not like you can offer it in return. A few people at our recent Buddhist bootcamp discussion circles mentioned native American tribes the quakers and many other traditions who purposely add

I had to put actually pull out a couple of weeks ago for a little while ago for for for different reasons but as I sit here. Everybody's wondering what's going to happen because these corona I mean for those who don't know Geneva historically was always one of the the biggest auto shows of the year it was kind of premier one in Europe Attended by all the kind of literati globally as an in neutral Switzerland. Yeah I need supposed to happen. The press days next Tuesday and we're all waiting for messages to listings happening on now. I mean it's A. It's a huge deal about the millions literally tens of millions of hundreds of millions that are spent on this and is it. Is it kind of late in the game to cancel it? Yeah I mean I. I was telling you it's going to happen. It's just going to be kind of flop. I I mean we had. We had Alfred Mayo. His happens from time to time manufacturers. Come in and show ladies. 'cause we have a chat meet we we talk about life and what role doing and I am a global head of. Pr was saying. You know we've been told not to travel. So it's it's a big deal. Yeah I wonder how they do that. Do they try to find local representation? The have a team there that they have like a local. Pr Team A little bit smaller team yet. But I guess I don't know I mean he's going to be an interesting show. How much money and how much he's committed. But also if if people on traveling and I think the other concern is people are worried that you're GONNA get quarantined. So you end up in Geneva. I'm going to keep talking. You end up in Geneva and if you imagine all the the world the company execs from all over the world traveling into Geneva and then just ending up being Maroon there. I read that that later this year. We have twenty twenty Olympics in Tokyo. They're saying hey we. We need a contingency plan. We may cancel the Olympics and they said but they need you know. They need minimum three months. They can probably do two months lead way to to cancel it but they can't do four days like like what you're talking about. They can't do five days. Well also big Formula Warm Fun. I used to working for him in the world in days. Gone by and there's a little conversation about which pre happen which wouldn't yeah it's It's interesting times. We're also seeing in terms of vehicle production as well because a lot of parts is not just 'cause made in China but he's also parts supply parts moving around the world so this there's a big impact going on and what's going to be the effect of cancelling Geneva. Is it really gonNA manner not matter? Everyone's going to release their cars. And they're gonNA send out the press kits and and and try to find some other place two like they're still going to announce the cars digital digitally. I mean I I was invited to a bunch of events down the I was going to sit down with the Mercedes. Co The global CEO on the boss of AM G. And we're GONNA have half an hour with with those guys and that's always great for me because she always learned so much a fascinating fascinating individuals as well to be running something that big. You know things like that obviously won't happen but I know a of things that Mercedes showing off and yet I'll do it digital release. You'll you'll be they'll send the images alison press releases and away you go. I think the tough thing I Geneva and also shows generally. New York's beginning of April. Is these things you know. There's a lot of pressure on these shows. Little people pulling out anyway if it doesn't happen than we'll ever happen again and Gordon is. What happens to the you know the credits into the billions? Almost what's actually spent in in in some things well? In all of these companies so many companies are taking a financial hit already. Everybody asks to prepare for factories being shut down obviously in the automotive space but products all around the world that so much is is manufactured in China and now that that Krona viruses is spreading. Everything in automotive is expensive and global. Yeah so anything. That's hit Soglo on a global level like this is going to be a big deal. Yeah I roll up in the accurate annex. I WANNA say new but it. It got sort of a revision this past year a little bit different ero and I think they did. Some adjustments on the suspension and stuff. Have you driven the sex yet? So this is I drove the original Essex. The you know the sort of iconic mateen nine. I think it was many years ago but the latest wanted always passing by always being doing doing something else when everyone was around so I finally got into it the last couple of days. It's a it's a fascinating thing I kind of. I really wouldn't like it. I really want to love it because I like the idea of buying an accuracy because I think it feels. Yeah it's almost like I'm coming out and skiing I don't need. I don't need a fraud. Whatever I'm going to buy an ACURA sex because I know what I like. I don't need to everything else so I rely. I like similar technology but I kind of feel it's almost too clever by half in that Scott the three and a half six two but then on top of that these three electric motors. And there's a lot of really clever tech going on but what actually delivers is is questionable and increasing the. I'm unless no less of a fan of potato well. This isn't the plug in or hybrids. Generally I think these days you you either go all in on the electric light the ticon all stick with a stick with a gas engine light the new cove at something and its own to me. It feels like that choice now and carrying around all this complexity and all this weight and everything else for hybrid just just almost feels like old tech even though it's cutting edge on one level
"Offers an intense perspective on the issues and feelings most prescient in the poet's mind to that end Ellie Ellie Sada's latest collection towards the end challenges a range of concerns troubling our contemporary world today. So Ellie welcome back to three. Ci Thank you. Thanks for having me Nev- it. The title here. Seems a little ominous towards the end leading to the end of the world as we know it but the world as we know it I you know I think as I was. Finalizing the book Earlier in the year. And I'm thinking well. This is a bit of a melodramatic title. And then I turn on the news now. Actually I just step out at you know to the back yard and I can't breathe because of the ember storm you know. This is interesting learning new language. Courtesy of the Times. We live in so there. Is You know parts of Australia. Burning soon have another of the horse. Men of of the apocalypse disease being unleashed in Wuhan China. At exact same time we had you know trump trying desperately to start the Third World War by by killing that Iranian General I thought well the four horsemen are here so my title was in to a to an in some ways necessarily see the physical demise here. It's it's more for the values and concerns that we hold dear if I may I'll just read the first poem and we can discuss it in a little more detail. It's called the singer. This is how I croon my son singing Humpty dumpty a melody. He screams out in the absence of my song. I wasn't nearly as loud toddler. My voice vanished from the void of my father's car father's es sorry. I remember him having vaguely while driving wrapped up in his own world in mind. My son's medley moves onto Jack and Jill recalling the tune. I whistled yesterday. Did it ever exist? Did I ever have a voice? Even as an infant to seek to mit a whimper. Our member dad crying out the lyrics of an old Persian. Dirge wobbling from the speaker's not long after moving to Australia homesickness. Haunting his larynx like ghost howling in a haunted house. So much for parenting the loss of the music I never could muster. I'm here for my son's nursery rhymes to enact the presence unsung words now. My interpretation and this is the thing about poetry. It's open to all sorts of possibilities. The music the music of the child the music of the father and the music of your father and your music seems to get lost in there somewhere and your voice. Because there's your father recollecting purge at the music is a wider connect with these past life your son Humpty Dumpty Jack and Jill vs the medleys all Utah of the future. So but this is my interpretation. But I'm just wondering if that coincides with your intention but also then the question Your Voice. Your music Great I just want to say that you read it very well and I think I would like you to do all my readings from here on if that's okay look into. I guess I wouldn't call it an ironing. It's too weak word but I guess the contradiction is that it's actually written in my voice. The whole poem is actually in my voice. It's a little bit like Plato in the Republic. Saying all this nasty things about art but the Republicans written as a play with characters. So you know there's that sort of again i. I guess this is paradox. I guess is the word so so here is a Paul supporters. You know saying I don't have a voice but it's actually nothing but the poet's voice I think that that's sort of the lost there and it's something that identify in the rest of the collection is not so much for voice of personal you know emotional autobiographical identity. But one of something deeper something more more meaningful which are identified to be the voice of universal human subjectivity. Now that's one of the oldest things that poets tried to do scene at a time of the great epic poets. They want. I wanted to speak on behalf of humanity. Now this is something. A modern poetry mob has certainly rejected strongly beginning with romanticism. Which says look you know. It's just you the lyric I expressing your feelings. All the way to sort of like postmodernism and which says the lyric is bad but any mention of we is also not okay. Only he only express the immediacy of language. And that's all you ever do and I kind of feel like well. I don't I mean I I mean that's a tall these traditions but the quest that I guess I felt as I was putting the poems in this book together on a road some additional poems and arranged upon where particular wide at Kinda tells of sort of a story and is not so much about finding my personal voice. You know how do I how do I express myself? But it's about well. What is the voice? That's is needed for our times. And I think that's the kind of the big universal question which is perhaps even a political question. Wouldn't you raise some very mighty topics vertical philosophical social There's one called saga the more obscure and undesirable the more palatable. Ice Scowl still bothers me. And she's been dead for at least a decade. Her husband comically defendant. A downtrodden man wants a Communist. How much more fascinating radical with? My grandparents emigres escaping style and coming to Iran to found a trotskyite cell instead of Banal Matriarch and dull ethics patriarch immersed in gossip and religion. As a child. I hated any a few things more than being left alone with him. He once believed in the dictatorship of the proletariat when he died. I couldn't some in a single tear from my added on to his grandson. He'd being so simple meaningless as for Anna perhaps not really possible that she migrated as a teenage girl from Baku to Iran for more exceptional reason than giving birth to a son. Who'd made a woman who didn't give birth to me? Jeans are poor substitute for the fable of revolutions that universal family. Thank you but this notion of needing a viable needing a sag that's momentous and yet the irony or the opposite is the sort of mundane Mundane missive life Yeah totally I mean. I think you know this is my third book of poems. I kind of exhausted. That's sort of like Again reflection on the personal and familial and the mundane I know. That's what a lot of poets do and they do. Well you know since I mean who's to say that William Williams was wrong to talk about her red wheelbarrow on K. Good not yourself that and I've done that but I kind of feel like especially the Times though was writing this collection of putting it together and I kind of begins around the time that I live into by and this is two thousand and eight and I see the global financial crisis at that really impacts me and I feel like perhaps there is a tradition of poetry that is much more easily impacted by what's happening in the world by the economic social and political. Then there are other traditions. You know the the great sort of I mean this is this is again. It is also paradoxical thing we think about romanticism. We think well. It's the poetry of you know some some English Dandy wandering around and looking at daffodils. Okay it's that but it is also the poetry of the same Dandy as a young person going to be a part of the French Revolution. So so you know that sort of again. I feel like there is a a traditional poetry. That is more public. That is more We can talk about its political. Buddy and what what sense of the word is as as people listening to this and listening to your excellent readings of my poems that. I'm not a preachy person. Nevertheless these are poems that express a desire for universality of the human experience. I mean you've got some lovely lines at times. I mean the economy's manifest destiny and that juxtapose -sition manifest destiny was part of the American agenda expansion prearranged by God over an indefinite area and yet now applying that to the economy as that he's now want is determining allies those sorts of images and juxtapose that you've created. I forget which one that was in their alphabet city Alphabet yeah so that. That's sort of those the images that you're able to provide to make us think more profoundly more deeply. Yeah thanks I I mean I mean you know it's Yeah it's a kind of again referenced. Historical things look as you said manifest destiny but that that particular Isabelle a cafe. They used to being in North called alphabet city. And and and you know I mean I. I was away from Australia for some time. Then I came back and didn't move back to Northcote. Couldn't afford it but but eventually when I went back and also well I go to this cafe where I used to hang out and it's just not there anymore and and I will on why you know what what is happening here. Look really and I thought well. It's there is to concreteness of the city. Being being pulverized due to the forces of capital and nobody I mean. It's it's an absurd thing to say what I don't want this old. You know cafe to be knocked down and replaced by auto residential flats built with you know to to enhance the value of capital for investors. Who Am I to say no to that? But I mean that's a very symbolic and visible way in which our lives are being impacted by this extraordinary juggernaut of capital to use a Marxist term the jagged of capital in many ways destroys the spirit of a place. I mean one of the things I've noticed in my son is that when I first moved in the dwellings were sort of seventies style and such like and now they being pulled down and two story brick mausoleums going from fence. Lan Events Line What is the old quarter Acre block and the veggie patch in the back? But it's it's a Y Y of how life is represented we see as leading allies and it's being destroyed in many

It's great to have someone with so much experience and so much focus in motorsports fascinating topic and one that we haven't really had an opportunity to delve into thus far so it's great to have you as our guest to talk about what it really takes to win in Motorsport Competition.

He was just down the street and Early Memories of walking out on my driveway and seeing a Ferrari Daytona spyder sat there because he put up at the wrong house boy. That radium. Prince early does it. That's a that's a heck of a leader grow up yours. Yeah so for me. It's just been a passion and it was natural as I grew older and got pushed through the school system that when I started thinking about what he's a career to be. I wanted to be a race engineer from very early on and and really targeted where my education was taking me and I've been fortunate to be able to accomplish that and more so I've been very privileged. Well it's interesting that you had identified very early on what you wanted to be when you grow up as they say what about university I guess she went to university in the UK. There was only one place really to go in the UK to study car design. There was no specific courses. Like they're out today as a place called Love Brought University of Technology at the time and they had a course automotive tech college in the UK. It's like the equivalent here would be. Mit similar like that and they had a course automotive engineering and design twenty two spots and typically three four hundred applicants for those twenty two spots and I managed to snack one of those were. Ah Suspect took some talent I have to say. I'm not that rocket scientists the most brains guy at school. That's not me but I'm practical. A hardworking person and Israeli sort of dedication and sheer effort. That got me through the university system and I. I remember at the time because I I didn't go a conventional route. I didn't do the typical. Uk Root of which time was o level exams up until sixteen and then a level exams are ordinary and advanced level and chose sixteen to leave school and go to an engineering college. So I learned a bit of practical engineering. Learn how to work my way around a machine shop and I learn more about the hands on approach of engineering and I remember going to the interview. They win the head of the course. Lovebirds said you know. I don't think you're GONNA make unprepared to off your place but I don't think you're gonNA make it. I don't think academically you're strong enough kidding. And I remember seeing him three years later because he was actually four years later because he was my noise and vibration lecture. So I mean you look to me so that you still haven't said Yep so hey you know so much for his noise and vibration to obviously didn't have much resonance did it and good puns in there as well. I got three the my undergraduate degree. Well and the time I was trying to find a spot in major racing and it's not straightforward to come out of university. I mean you think it's not actually you know nothing. I wanted to be in Formula One because pure and motoracing and and you want to go work in the industry what you want to set your sights very high one for me was where I wanted to be. I wasn't able to find what I wanted in. An opportunity came up to actually further my education and two master's degree and so that's what I did. I moved over to the Cranfield Institute of Technology which is purely a postgraduate university. I spent a year. They're studying really similar but more advanced automotive engineering but I had an opportunity to work with a race car. Constructor called Lola cars no longer in business. These days time they were really starting to get into trying to project. How fast racing car will be before actually hit the track answer? My master's thesis was based on creating a mathematical model of racing cal and driving around the track and predicting the lap time was going to be. So that was complex math Tony when computing was not necessarily as advanced as I was writing the code in Fortran seventy seven. She's a language for probably nine hundred hundred of Sanskrit of But it was based around Lowest Formula. Three thousand car that was racing in Japan and Zucca circuit and Mizzou's circa in Japan is one of the most challenging not just from a driver's perspective but also from an engineer's perspective. And I challenge I had to do is to try and define the racing line or what line is the cog taken. A good driver will naturally find that but asking a computer is not straightforward. But that been some interesting work done by some guys at NASA which was looking at rocket trajectories so I started applying some of the algorithms. They were using on how to shoot a missile from point. Eight point being depending on what characteristics? You wanted that mistletoe. Shortest distance falsely speed. Whatever you could tune the algorithm so I played around with that and ultimately wrote a program which was very successful in predicting how fast the car would go low to use that quite a bit and even when my contact at lower ultimately decided to go a different direction. He took some of that knowledge with him. I remember getting a phone call. Saying Hey. I'm heading out to Miami to do the Miami Street race if I send you a track map. Can you for Jewish? And this was really before email and all the rest of it. I remember working through the night for several nights putting it on a three and a half inch floppy drill off here and Fedex ing him at the hotel and this was before they ran and then I got within three or four tenths of a second of the qualifying time. That is phenomenal. Let time programs today are fairly common. We use them all the time and you can write one in xl but back then none of these things existed even trying to create just the visual image of what the lap time would look like the speed tries against distance all time. It was a big challenges right in the actual program itself so for me just watching the way motors has embraced computing and the science behind. It has been a fascinating experience.

"By the Knicks on its home court after a slow start the Celtics on four straight. Kyrie Irving is starting to look like an all star. Again. The CS have the deepest roster in the Eastern Conference. Even though they are six games. Hind first place Toronto. All right, Michael to paraphrase, the great late Dennis Green, other Celtics. Now who we thought they not yet? But they're getting their Franken that's gonna take a little while longer to. I mean part of this. I don't understand it seems that people were like expressing surprise. And it was gonna take Gordon. Hayward Leah half a season. Maybe two thirds of the season to get to the point. We looked like the Gordon Hayward of old. Well, that was crazy. And he's he's getting there gradually incrementally. And I think that's critical. They going to need him to play in full like he used to before the Celtics we expected any also they shocked the ball so poorly in that stretch where I think they were just ten and ten on their record for the season. Those shots is starting to fall. And I think we all do they would. So the Celtics are going to get there are there yet. No could they have another setback of two along the way between now and Christmas. Yes. I don't think this is going to be easy for them. Toronto is a better team. Gordon Hayward last week did have thirty points in Minnesota. So maybe starting to come around you start. You know, here's something that happened to them. Jalen Brown got hurt. Marcus smart goes into the starting lineup and that change things around a little bit. Because Marcus smart, he's a ball mover. He defends so they become a different team. Listen to this my on the season, they averaged two hundred eighty eight passes per game in the last four three hundred twenty three. So the giving them mostly the smart you like his assertion internet. And and here's the thing when he starts coming off the bench. They have Terry Rozier, Gordon Hayward, and Jaylen Brown Namie a team in the NBA that has had hype of quality coming off their bench. I mean, that's look we've always thought that depth not just depth to be shuttling guys in and out for minute. Not just a rotation quality three guys who could be starting for half the team by league if not more. So again, I think even that takes time to sort of figure out and get comfortable with the Celtics are there yet. They're going to be right there with. Ronna with the end of the that now, but Mike here's the thing. US every coach in the NBA when the playoffs start. They want an eight-man maybe nine that's Namie team.

That's like that seems like a twenty game win streak and other years 'cause the teams out west are so good up and down up and down. Nobody can sort of get traction for much time. But I still think that the loss of a Reza and. I think those losses were enormous. And so they're still trying to recover from that find themselves figure out a different identity. But we didn't think it was going to be on offense. I agree with you there. The defense we thought might take a step back. But this is stunning offensively. What's plaguing? And remember, trivial reasons is on Phoenix. And that's the one team in the Western Conference. That's no good. Everyone else could technically compete for a playoff visit chance. You could be traded. Maybe he does get traded back. Houston rockets. Mike. Here's amazing thing last year, Houston, seven teen games. They've thirty losses. They can get the seventeen losses before Christmas. It's a little backslide. But this is starting amounts of big backs. They're gonna make the playoffs. Yes. Or no. Yes.

But now as being reported the Jags done with Blake Bortles, and it was impossible to not notice several Jaguars, including king knucklehead. Jalen ramsey. Yep. Dancing. Simple mindedly well being humiliated Tony fell for Jacksonville nonsense after they beat the patriots since September. But if foreign nine and Bortles on the way out Frank what's the Jaguars future? Now doesn't look great. And I bought in his well, if you go back to last season that road when they had a Pittsburgh so close to making the Super Bowl and Boorda's will be gone in Rapoport is reporting that but to me this about their defense and they walk around like they're the eighty five bears.

Pose all the way down view on their embarrassing, Frank. I'm totally with you. I mean, it was like it was something personal. He was literally running for his life and just shoving guy to the ground who want to be embarrassed. And then continue on with the game. They're mugging four camera. Once again once again the Jaguars play more stupidly than any team in the league. And yet they strut. It's unbelievable. But think about this for second Frank. They will have made first round quarterbacks elections is eleven and I think fourteen so or fifteen so they I mean, they have just wasted this. They're starting all over Tom Coughlin's on the hook for some of this stuff. That's happened on his watch more recently the last couple of years Frank they ought to be embarrassed. And I don't think there's smart enough to be. I'm talking about the players now, and you know what Tom Coughlin Doug Marrone. They got a lot of credit last year getting very close to make you. Yeah.

"As far as how you tags axon Ville, they are very very fast not only on the back end, especially the linebackers, but the linebackers with that speed they're a little undersized. Pittsburgh. What have they done the people? They've spread them out. And man, they have run the football. They have been physical their offense of line has played great which is led the James CONNER. Having a great first half of the season that. The way you attack Jacksonville. Then you get some play action right now in the National Football League. There is no one better as far as a deep threat than Antonio. So then you physical play action you get in Tonio. Some those double moves against Jalen down the field. Lease the NFL as far as big place touchdowns over twenty yards. He's got seven of them. So man, that's the way I think James Connor. Let's get some play axe after James Connor, and let's get a B on some of those double moves against Jalen spicy mouth. He's got to say after the game. Nick that makes every time. Listen the Steelers are one of the hottest teams in the league. The Jags are playing terrible football after the great start their season. One in six in their last seven. Why is this game a potential trip game for Pittsburgh man last year? Pittsburgh was thirteen and two against the NFL not named the Jacksonville Jaguars. Those two losses were an overtime loss to Chicago. And a last second loss to New England. So they played fifteen games that weren't. Jags either won or lost on the final play the overtime to the interception against New England and the overtime loss to Chicago the Jags. Molly Optum them in the regular season. And then jumped all over them in the AFC divisional round before's, Pittsburgh kinda made it closely, but Jacksonville was in firm control throughout that football game. So if there's any team that even this season Jacksonville's go into a game saying, oh, we're better than them. I don't care what the records say we crush them twice or it would be this football game. My question is can more on the Jacksonville. And Pittsburgh side. I know who the Steelers are they've made it very clear who they are after the beginning of the season where they had their struggles. Their defense is playing the best. It's played sense. Ryan Shakespeare's injury. The offense has always been dynamic since they've had been and Antonio Brown and they've got a close proxy of living on bell. And James skipped. I wanna see if this Jacksonville defense can channel anything that. It was like last year because this year that we can put everything on Blake Bortles. It's fine. But this defense that was first or second in everything last year is tenth in points is right now eighteenth against the run the only category where they're still in the top three is passing. What can this Jacksonville defense show you in a year that is a lost year for them? But they're trying to build on anything as a young team needs to this this game at home could be the biggest game remaining on their schedule. Good teams. Don't.

"So I believe that they will Terry Bradshaw. I believe they will change coach at the end of the season. And you can look for him to be one of the top candidates in Cleveland, John Dorsey with the Green Bay background lobby's general managers in this new NFL, they go with who they trust, you know, not necessarily who they think is best who they trust Bill to make decision as far as moving forward as a team general manager and head coach moving forward at the same. So yes, I believe he is going to be dismissed from Green Bay, but I can bleed he'll be fired pride at first Monday after the season on that Tuesday or Wednesday. He could be rolling on the clean. You can be the right person to get Cleveland from a to b but that doesn't mean you're the right person to get Green Bay from Beata. See some you know, what I mean like you can be the right person for certain job where team is in trying to get into contention, but not necessarily the right person to take a team that's in contention over the top into Super Bowl favorite. I think that's plays. Mike McCarthy themselves. Absolutely. Yes. Steelers. Valid drama is behind them. They move forward as currently constructed heading Jacksonville to take on a disappointing Jaguars team. Jags are three and six, but they seem to have the Steelers number Pittsburgh seeking revenge for the two times they lost to Blake Bortles and company last season. Big bend says he isn't taking Jacksonville lightly. From front to back. They're really good really fast. A lot of teams we say starts up front with their paths rush. And this group has an unbelievable pass rush. Russia their front for their linebackers or some of the fastest you ever play against secondary. Is as good as a secondary you're gonna play. So there's really no where to start and finish with this group. They're just that good. So like, I said, this will definitely be the big challenge for us. So surprising too big losses last year to this Jaguars team. What are the Steelers have to do to avoid another loss to this team say you gotta listen to bin what he's saying?.

"But your way through all their games, the game against Green Bay to missed opportunity. They had opportunities to win. They didn't lose it, fine, art buffalo. They're looking ahead to the Rams game, but that didn't do good. 'cause the Rams beach anyway. And so he it's a good point, five and turned into eight eight and tuned to turned into thirteen and three, but the consistent force through the five zero started. A tuned to start was a dominant defense, a great defense. This Vikings defense hasn't even been averaged this year. That is. That's one of the most surprising results of the season so far that the Vikings defense has atrophied to this level the Jags last year, see member those charge. We had Jackson, Minnesota one, two, and every category, the Jags are still one too. And every category Minnesota has fallen off into the twenties in nearly every same thing with the eagles coming into the season, the two things he didn't have to worry about where the eagles defense seemingly in the Vikings defense. Same Healy, the eagles defence look vulnerable. The last two weeks, the Vikings defense get up at least twenty seven points the last three games. Are they having like what? Nixon identity crisis from both teams. This thing with the eagles at least you can identify one grouping like you can blame it. Teams don't like to, but for the eagles are secondary? Yes, the Vikings, it's been sometimes the defensive line getting gas running are not getting the pass, rush with their bass with their best pass. Rusher Imson grip. We don't know when he's going to come back to play for them. Their linebackers has. Struggled in tackling. Also in pass coverage. We saw Anthony Barr and get toasted against the Rams and their secondary Xavier Rhodes like he's a shutdown travel corner. He struggled this season. So we've seen that the eagles is isolated in their secondary last year, the secondary plate of their town. And now they are question Mark moving forward. And while the eagles defense might not be as high level as we thought it would be there still fringe top ten in most categories. And the number one rush defense which speaks to your point. See, it's really about the bad past events. Vikings are twenty second in points, twenty first in yards, twenty seven yards per play defensively. And so that is one of the reasons by the way they're throwing the ball as often as they are, and maybe they can take advantage of eagle secondary, that's underperforming. But I think the eagles will find their legs. I think Carson Wentz is going to get better as the your goes on, not get worse, and I think the eagles know who they are. They we. We took the Kirk cousins edition as an obvious upgrade because it is from case keenum to Kirk cousins. But if adding him made them change, even psychologically, how they're trying to win games, how they've been successful, they need to recalibrate that because this was a team that with teddy Bridgewater in year two when eleven and five and was in the playoffs, should've won that game. If not for blur Walsh started out the next year five and until they were ravaged by injury like this team's been good for years now also when you get a new offense coordinator, Christie Felipo sometime these guys are the next up and coming young coach. They try to be a little more promoting themselves by their play compared to Shurmur who was there lashing. They have more balance.

"No, no, no, no. I thought we said. Futures in there. Okay. That's fair. Jacksonville, Tennessee. First Jags impressive win over New England. I was on the pats just rolling the dice like I had the last twenty years or so with Brady and ballot check. Look hats off to the Jags. They're legit and they played great. You know what they played aggressively. And I think that was the key Jacksonville proved on Sunday. They're definitely the real deal dog. I mean, they they've got so much talent on that defensive side of the football, very impressive win for for Jacksonville. And certainly that was one of the big winners for us here at the west gate. And I imagine all across the state, we had a very, very good week in the NFL and the Jacksonville, New England game was one of the real highlights for us. I'm not convinced they're that great Bortles played out of his mind. You know, look, let's just say the patriots make the fifty four yarder on that opening drive and they kick and it's not a short field. Like, I don't know. I mean, this game getting on either way. Jackson was definitely the better team, but I don't think that they play that game ten times. I think. Five and five. Like I think they because it was a coin flip point spread. I think it would be a coin, flip outcome. I don't think the Jags are necessarily that amazing. Well, how sure are we that New England? Is that good? Because I mean, I know they've got bell chicken Brady, so they always get the benefit of the doubt and deservedly so, but outside of those two and gronkowski I, I don't think there's that much talent on this New England roster this year and correct. I. That they have arguably the best head coach and quarterback ever though you can't just quarterback is forty one years old. I'm not saying you should dismiss the patriots. Believe me. I fully expect them to run away with the AFC east and get a first round by like they do every year and then have a home game to get back to the AFC championship game. But I, I'm not. I'm not convinced if they're that strong..

"For the Pittsburgh Steeler. Steeler always been like in talking, say, the pats are undefeated and he says during the week, they're not that good, we can beat. I forgot the exact comment. I do not forget what the patriots did. They rain a flea flicker directly. Add Anthony Smith. Anthony Smith got roasted and Brady met him in the end zone Brady did a direct run thirty five yards downfield to get an anthem Smith's face Brady, actually got a taunting penalty. I think maybe the only one of his career in that moment yelling, Anthony Smith. I later in the show and talk about who we like in this match of gronk or Jalen. I like Jalen to quote win the match up statistically, but that's because I think the patriots are going to if they do have them matched up. I think they will be happy with it. I think they will throw to the running backs. I think they will get quarter Patterson involved in the quick screen game. I think they will see if what they saw in week. One Phillip or set is duplicate week over week. Like by think that they the pats would be fine with the Jags chain. Changing their defensive game plan around slowing down grunk if it makes everyone else on their defense, particularly the secondary have to play. They're slightly out of position or not exactly what they're used to doing because the way the Jags have been dominant defense is they do what they do and they make you adjust if they adjust if the Jags just preemptively the pats that works in the pats favor and who they're going to do it with. I don't know Rex Burkhead in the concussion protocol. Like, I don't know. They got James whites-only Michelle, the first round draft, pick university of Georgia, not up yet in plain. We're gonna go back suppo hero, James white Dorset like I don't know who they're going to go to in the Jags tone. Don't went on. I r this, so they got a shortage of skilled guys like I've never seen before so that that that's a different set of challenges and that will be played out in the game. I mean, that's what it comes down to. We don't know who the guys are going to be, but we know that Bill Belichick will utilize somebody and get some production and be able to. Move the ball works at more in their advantage than Bill. Bell checks always finds a way that's what he does. And Tom Brady is so versatile in terms of the concepts that he's able to adopt because he's seen so much football, he's got answers based on the defensive looks that he's facing. So I don't worry about what the pats offense is. That's the that's always gonna be the constant in that game. The pats offense is going to find a way to score points..

"For me is that I'm not really concerned about the Jags defense because I think this is the best they match up very well against the patriots. Offense was concerning to me is that Blake, Bortles is the quarterback and he's going against revamp highly motivated berry improved patriots defense. This is the best last week and I know is one game, but at no point time last year that I see them generate this kind of pass, rush flower onto the football like they did open open Sunday. So with that being it's hard to get any worse than giving up forty one points in the Super Bowl to Nick fall. Take out. Can you not get a little better than you want to the backup quarterback one isolated. I selected Super Bowl. Yeah, isolate it. It happens. They're picking worse time to have the worst game. Okay. I gave you that, but that's Blake Bortles. And if you look at what he did last week, skip. And I think one that game where the game at New York at in New Jersey they did. Yeah. I think Jacksonville wanted him right interested, whether becoming really know they don't have the border playmaker skip that mean you think about you throw, Blake, Bortles in the you don't give him anything to remind me somebody else. I know Janney I know a team that probably like soundly of south west of if you don't talk about remind you allow the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, that's legitimate. He's trying to distract the audience from the problem. He's having saying that the patriots are in big trouble, Jacksonville, they're not in big trouble. Why would it be in big trouble with Tom Brady? Is it my turn? No. Okay. You have to be a quick you. Why would it be big trouble with Tom Brady coach Bela that that was the question that Ginny ask you and you you're saying they're not much really. I think it'll be close game. We're gonna pick this game later. Okay. But I think it'd be very close, very close gang close. Well, I think the New England Patriots are in huge trouble at Jacksonville. I think Jacksonville should win this game, and I believe this will be easily New England's toughest game of the year and the one game on their schedule. I think they should lose because they do play Green Bay and they do play Kansas City and they play Minnesota..

"To the jags everybody loves a jags kate before we start crowning they were ten and six last year and that's with andrew lucked being gone into shown watch and they went four zero against the texans and the colts i'm gonna go with they're not gonna go four no against the colts in the texans because blake bortles isn't close to shawn watson and he's not close to andrew luck now blake bortles i mean tom coughlin came in and made it real clear we're going to be running team but two of their receivers that i liked alan hearns gone allen robinson gone and now it's the mercurial marquees lead depends on the sunday depends on the half again i think we kind of fell in love with them last year i get it their defensive personnel is special but they lost two good receivers recorder back to can lose anybody by the way mercedes lewis has gone too i think just popped into my head andrew lock into shawn watson her back in the division no thanks third finally tennessee new coordinator new head coach so that's gonna take a while to gel demarco murray one of their better running backs decided to retire now they added dion lewis who actually like i think they're november schedule could be really tough at dallas new england at indy at houston where the culture getting a break in november they never leave home tennessee's got up brutal november here's the thing can we just knowledge this now marcus mariota 's okay he's a nonverbal quarterback in a verbal league and more picks than touchdowns last year he struggles to stay healthy he's the third best quarterback in this division i mean again i like him i watched him at oregon i like him he's okay he's not he's not as good as andrew luck and he's not as good as.

"The game they thought they would win but it wouldn't be in this fashion seventeen fourteenth that the total in this game that vegas set was forty one that's for both teams each team hit the total by themselves this was it was surprising the jags want it was shocking the fashion in which they won i i didn't see all the possible macintoshes this steelers scoring forty points and losing this football game i didn't see as one of the realistic possibilities listen the jags are going to talk after this game and they earned and jalen ramsey is one of my favorite young players in the league and i love his quotes but the jags defense has almost nothing to hang tat on this game they won this football game based on their offense been run going into this football game there had been ten quarter in nfl history to throw five touchdowns in a playoff game those quarter dates back to sit luchman your guy said luchman they were tending up there now ten in one because of been rothlisberger big ben became the first quarterback in playoff history to have a four hundred yard five touchdown game in a win or loss and they lost that football game i'm going to say the name that i think was the difference in this paul game ryan shazier i tried to disregard it i tried to look past it how different the steelers defense looked pre and post his injury this guy was the defensive player of the year they then lost him and in this football game what i saw was blake bortles throw throwing check down two running backs and tight ends in area that ryan shazier typically patrols and the steelers had no answer for leonard fournette gashing for gashing them tj yeldan gashing them so i don't know how you can put this on the steelers offense that the jags defense i the jags offense just beat the brakes off the steelers defense which was shocking to me there's a few things that were shocking the overall physicality of jacksonville how much more physical they were in a january playoff game in.

"To talk the most right and he is probably the most physically here merkley as campbell the most physically talented players on the team and so i i think he has to carry himself like that they are there are no two teams are less 15 years have a bigger dichotomy of success than the jags and the patriots no two quarterbacks that have vigor dichotomy of how their disgust dim brady him bortles so jaylen ramsey saying we're going to beat the brakes off you and then we're going to go to the super bowl win that like maybe it adds a little bit to the pats motivation but i think the jags have to to quote the man who will be named on the show speak it into existence to a degree so i understand what jail and trying to do you please don't go there no more uh jaylen ramsey is the the modern day for those recent history let's go with richard sherman unless look at seattle where they were before they got richard sherman skillset very very similar jaylen a better athlete but richard sherman kind of set a standard four corners not only on the field but off the field remember when they face new england y'all bro you man met face to face with brady so i take that pitcher of jaylen and also jaylen was a number three pick from florida state he is an extremely talented cornerback one the most talented that we've had drafted in nfl the last fifteen years arguably him an exotic bureau the minnesota those are the best they've got the best two seasons this year so who is this this guy is phenomenal talent comes from florida state oh florida state at the take you back the dion sand before atlanta falcons drafted him they have won five games and three games there were no different than jacksonville he changed at city he chains that call.
