Fresh update on "jefferson" discussed on Tony and Dwight
"There was going to be peaceful protesters, the ones who were there and following the rules, they were just they had signs, they chanted. They didn't set anything on fire. They didn't lose anything. They didn't break any windows. They They came down there and they expressed their opinion. You have your constitutional right to do that Go for sure. You don't have a constitutional right to destroy the downtown area of a major metropolitan city. But you know what? I'm shocked that there hasn't been a leak up until now and into into your point, Dwight to say, why the secrecy? I think that Daniel Cameron said. I'm in control of this. There won't be any leaks. I want to make sure LAPD in Frankfurt police election to police and the National Guard or whatever and people are. You know, people are saying now that there's these Homeland Security cars downtown, right marked that air saying that's homeland security. They're just not trying to make it very, very obvious that I think Daniel Cameron Was im in charge, dude, and I'm not letting this leak and I'm gonna handle it Permanent the way I want to You get it when you get it, And you know what? I don't mind that somebody in charge. It wants to take the heat. Go for it, I think but the homeland security cars. We knew they were coming cause that's part of the increased federal package for the Gene Snyder Courthouse and And all of that, because that falls under homeland security's purview. I know someone that works at the federal G. Snyder Federal courthouse. Not going to name him, obviously, but they were saying, Hey, you would not believe how many strange faces Aaron him? Yes. And this was a surly is, I think Friday. Yeah. How many strange faces were in that courthouse locking things? Well, guys, there are a bunch of Marshall's in town, and that's federal. So if somebody decides to vandalize federal property because they're there if you're arrested by the marshals Tommy Lee Jones is putting you away in a van and you're not coming out of jail for 15 years. Well unless your plane crashes. Right and then check. Every cat has rat house doghouse. That's right house between here in Missouri now. Well, I got a taxi. I'm not sure if this is true or not. Is it true that in Jefferson Park Mayor Fisher, A setting of seeding has a buffet table and televisions. I'll stop it. No. Yes, it is Jefferson in all seriousness about Jefferson Square part because the people who have asked this since downtown is a restricted zone. It is open to pedestrian traffic You can walk into and out of Jefferson Square Park all day through the designated entry points, which are on our social media pages. If you Need to know the intersection of choice to enter. There are some roads that are closed around Jefferson Square Park That's not meant to impede anyone from getting to the park to participate in a protest. That's meant to keep somebody from having a Charlottesville type event where they try to hit people at the protest with the car. Ah and chief Shorter said that as much yesterday and it it makes sense. You go back. You look at Charlottesville. There was the Now you know how many European attacks if we talk to our people of used cars or trucks or somethingto to drive over people, so it's meant to protect those who are down there trying to Express their constitutional right and again you have that constitutional right? Express yourself. Go for it. You know both sides of this issue, but it's downtown was just getting cool. We'll just don't worry. Getting cool 20 years it'll be cool again. Maybe it was just so, baby. We just built the Lin's family stadium. It was whiskey role. I mean, how many millions of dollars did they spend to save just a front brick? Which I thought was so stupid. Why are you spending all those millions of dollars and then blocking a lane of Main Street to keep the front of just these buildings you can say originally built in 18 98. Well, great. Who cares? Make it look like 18 19 right that you get all that finished. You get fortunate. Who cares about fourth Street live? Nobody goes on 4. Ft. Live You live here? But the other places re omni was great. Everything was awesome. And then all this. Don't blame me. I voted for elite. You mentioned you mentioned earlier social media. And if you look at downtown right now, it does look reminiscent of Miami or somewhere where hurricanes get ready hit, including including our City Hall, the federal courthouse building, But with that said, as far out as ST Matthew's, Tony said that the target and state man is breaking it up. And I say all that to say this will Clark. You mentioned social media on social media over the past couple of days, especially yesterday, there was talks about okay, They've got downtown court off and all this other stuff who says we're going to stay downtown? We need to disrupt and all this other stuff. So I would say, be vigilant if you if you're not going downtown, still be vigilant that other It could come to you somehow. Yes, it's um I don't think that there's any part of the city. That's That's particularly exempt in any way, shape or form. I think that obviously maybe Daniel Cameron's house because that that's become a focal point in previous demonstrations. I could I could see that being A situation So yeah, if you if you live anywhere in the general vicinity of Daniel Cameron's house, and we're not going to give the address of the location, because if you know what you know it, and if you don't know 30 to 50. I know they already know they are mother twice. No, but there's no sense promoting the address. It's those who need to know those who don't of course. Now we know what it's if you live in that area that it's probably in your best interest to be very vigilant or, at the very least, Maybe. Ah. Seek an alternate location that you, Khun My ball, and some people would say, Well, maybe that's overreacting. What Maybe it is, but This city and the state have never gone through something like this. We don't know what 1 30 this afternoon is going to look like we don't know what it's going to be like a two o'clock this afternoon or three or five or midnight. We don't know how this is going to just kind of Peter out. Bye bye mid evening or if this is going to go on for days. We don't know if anything's gonna happen. We don't know if it's going to turn into complete like downtown Baghdad during shock, and all this could go about 10,000 different ways. And the man who holds the keys to the machine is Daniel Cameron and Mayor Fisher's another one, and he declared a state of emergency, which gives them the power of of curfews. Any word if he's goingto do that, and, of course, enforce it if he does this time At this point there is.
Khan Academy: Sal Khan
"Most of the products and services we've talked about on the show have been innovative or disruptive in some way. But some of them and you've heard me say this before have fundamentally changed the way we live I mean lift AIRBNB starbucks. Shop Affi-. wayfair. These brands have transformed the way that many of us shop and travel and work. But every now, and then a founder comes along that seems to want to do something even more ambitious, even more transformative like remember. Pat. Brown, he founded impossible foods to create meet out of plants meet. So meet like that even the most die-hard carnivores would want to eat it. Pat Wants to put a stop to meet production period because of the damage, it's doing to the planet and essentially and I don't think I'm overstating this. He set out from day one to change the world. But still. Pat Brown stands to make a lot of money from his company same with most of the founders who've been on this show and I don't think any of them are motivated primarily to make money but it is part of the story they make a product or offer service, sell it to you and me, and they also get rich perfectly fine. But what about someone who makes a product or offers a service that is equally transformational maybe even more so but makes it one hundred percent free To do that, you have to make personal sacrifices starting by earning a lot less money. which is just part of what makes Sal Khan. So incredibly remarkable. Over the past twelve years, he's built Khan Academy into a powerhouse, a massive online learning platform that offers free tutorials to anyone anywhere. And from the very beginning South sided, his academy would be a nonprofit that it should never be tempted to compromise on its values. But before he launched Khan, Academy Sal didn't anticipate any of this. He was just trying to help a younger cousin with her sixth grade math lessons at the time he was working for a hedge fund. But from those early days of doing one on one to toils sal gradually built a platform that offers hundreds of classes in dozens of languages. Nearly thirty million people use Khan Academy. Every month to learn math science arts even sat prep all four free and Khan. Academy has inspired the launch of many other online learning platforms, but many of them are for profit operations that charge money. But we'll get to all that moment first. Let's back up just a little bit sal Khan grew up in metairie Louisiana his mom was from India and his dad was from Bangladesh and the marriage ended when sal was pretty young. My parents. Had issues and so they separated when I was probably about eighteen months old two years old and then I had really never seen my father and I saw once four an evening when I was thirteen and then he passed away the next year so it was really might. mother who raised us as as a single mother. While was there a community of South Asian families in imagery? Growing up. Yeah my you know when my parents separated. We actually live with my young at the time they were in their twenty s, and so they all were kind of like father figures and almost like older siblings to to me as well and and a lot of ways they were not your stereotypical you know. Just come to the US study. Get a job save money kind of prudent immigrant story they were. They were much more embracing of New Orleans. Culture. And I would say they're the most new ORLEAN South Asians. You will ever find it in your life. I had a very colorful childhood. You know late night parties, people, singing, and dancing. For me it felt like a I remember my third birthday that my uncles got a belly dancer. I still remember Habiba you know So it was definitely a different type of childhood, but it was a in some ways a really rich one. So what did your mom do for a living? The first job that I remember her having she she was the person who takes the change out of the vending machine at the at the local hospital actually the hospital where I was born and she took me to work a couple of times 'cause she didn't have childcare and I thought at the time I remember watching her do that. I think it was like the coolest job on earth because you have the key that you can open up the vending machine and like quarters just pour out of it. So she did that for a little bit and then essentially was a cashier at a series of convenience stores is kind of doing you know one minimum wage job after another and then I was in high school she had remarried her my Stepdad at the time were able to. Kind of cobble together to get a a small convenience store in. Your book you write. Louisiana was as close to South Asia as the United States could get. It's spicy food. Giant cockroaches in the corrupt government which is both funny but somewhat true true. I guess right I mean. You grew up at a time when. Like David Duke was the. The representative in steel her. The part of Mary where we had our store, it was called seminole convenience store on Seminole Avenue, and it's called a parliamentary called on that was kind of the heart of David Dukes base. So to speak I remember in a right outside of our our store across the street was the largest David Duke for president signing I've ever seen and so it was A. You know the the folks who lived in the neighborhood who were frankly know Super David Duke supporters in some ways it was lucky. This is pre nine eleven They didn't really know what to make of my family at at the time We've had a few conversations I remember with people the store where they they openly told us that they were trying to decide whether we were white or the N. word to you know we were confusing them but you know growing up I was the only Brown kid in in the classroom. But I never felt in school at all like folks were in any way biased or racist against me. If anything I have to give the the school system to Jefferson parish school system, a lot of credit you know I think a lot of what I am today is because they gave me opportunities there were teachers that believed in me. I had a really good friend circle So so I have no. You, know I I don't feel like it was a a tough childhood.

Unpacking the Apple Watch/iPad event
"Hey Everyone Jefferson Graham Herr hockey tech. I'm here with my friend Richton Bureau Rich on tech from KTLA. And rich and I have been covering Abbas events for years, there was a new one today it was virtual it was very polished. They went off to show new apple watches new subscription services to new IPADS and Gosh. Rich I felt it was missing so much. Don't fill the excitement that we normally feel how about you well, I think you're right it was it. was rushed. It was very fast and there was something that was missing. I'm not sure what it was but I think that apple knows that everyone really cares about the iphone the most and when it's not iphone, they wanted to sort of downplay the excitement. That's the way I fell. So we got a lot of stuff, but everyone's still wants to know about the IPHONE. Now we got a lot of stuff. They didn't talk about the new iphone because it's delayed until October mid October could be as late as November. So they wanted to talk about the watch and the IPAD and I could give it give you the one hour event in two sentences. It's two new IPADS that are have more powerful chips in there faster than ever. It's a new watch that that can check your blood oxygen and a cheaper watch for two seventy nine. That's in-between the the watch him twenty seventeen, and the the new introduced to new subscription services for fitness and for everything that they do and Iowa's fourteen tomorrow there's an hour. Good I'm impressed but here's the biggest news. So so yes, that is the big headlines, but then you have to unpack everything and that's what takes time going through all the little features that apple mentioned all the things that they said, all the things that they did not say, but to me, I think one of the biggest growth places for apple will be the new. Apple. Watch family setup, which allows you to as a parent. You use your iphone to set up a child's Apple Watch and this is very important Jefferson because apple does not want to set. The Apple Watch free because what would that do? That would enable people to have an Apple Watch with any phone they want and they want to keep people on the apple ecosystem. So this new family setup allows a parent to set up the watch for their child. So you're still SORTA tethered, but they can grow a lot of apple watch sales for parents buying these for their kids. Now, we've sat in the audience and we've enthused and we've had a really good time covering these events for several years. Would we have gotten more out of today if it'd been live? I. Think. So I think we would have I mean number one you get to go hands on with the gadget afterwards that's always a nice plus You know you're in the audience I I don't think it moves quite as fast when it's in person and I'm sitting here in front of at least one, two, three, four screens and it was tough for me to. Keep up with this and it's tough to kind of reference things. They mentioned the IPAD mistakenly said, it was the IPAD seven generation when it's the eighth generation I, mean, how do you keep track of all these things and some of these things are so nuanced like how do you describe what the new IPAD is like I mean it's just faster. I mean. That's really You know I don't know it's like it's tough sometimes to kind of really pinpoint what is better about these devices many of them are evolution at this point. And of course, they've been saying that every every device they come out with this faster for years I never thought the I pat slow, but I don't play a lot of games on it well, and I think that it sometimes the apps do take more I mean my kids are still I look these things do last a long time and when people ask about apple versus other products and they made a big deal today to to pinpoint the ipad being faster than a windows laptop being re much faster than an android. Tablet and way faster than a
Apple debuts discount watch, but no new iPhones ... yet
"Get ready for some new apple products. The tech giant will unveil new versions of some old products on Tuesday and potentially show off some new ones do, but it's going to be the first apple product reveal without its usual audience. Instead, the event will feature prerecorded demos spread out over a couple of hours. There will be new IPADS and Apple Watch additions and possibly air pod over the ear headphones plus Apple's take on a Bluetooth key finder, but there won't be any new. IPHONES. They'll be unveiled next month Jefferson Graham from USA Today's talking tech podcast as more. Let's start with the IPAD basically a higher end better looking newer IPAD air. This is the product that sells for five hundred dollars as opposed to the three hundred and twenty nine dollars entry level or the eight hundred dollar ipad pro analysts expect an edge to edge display minus a home button and something. I'm pretty excited about touch ID, which is where you press the home button instead of using face id but touch ID will be on one of the buttons on the side of the unit I hate face I It never works for me, and of course, anybody with the mask knows it doesn't work for them either. So I think this is pretty cool the Apple Watch series six it's expected to be more about software than hardware with a more powerful processing chip it's expected to be able to detect blood oxygen levels and watch users could get an improved electrocardiogram feature to check heart rate. No that the roster currently is three, ninety nine for the series five and one, ninety, nine for this series three. So I think series three is going to be replaced with a lower end watch and can't wait to see what series six all about otherwise analysts think. We might see some new over the ear headphones Cold Air POD studio along with the long rumored apple tags, which again is apple's clone of the tile. Bluetooth key tractor tile was. Really popular about two years ago and sort of lost its Mojo. So it'll be interesting to see what happens
Apple's September Event: No Crowds and Likely No iPhone
"The show for more. Everyone Jefferson Graham, talking tech, and you know were here in the middle of September and you know what that means. It's time for apple to have event to wow us with new products except this year. The event is not going to feature the IPHONE. The event is going to feature updates on IPADS and Apple Watch editions possibly era pod over the year a headphone an apples take on the tile bluetooth key finder I don't think it's going to have the same sort of pizzazz without the iphone but you know what we're GonNA end up with is to apple events one in. Mid September another in October, which will preview the new iphone which has been delayed due the the pandemic. Let me tell you what analysts expect to see start. Let's start with the IPAD basically a higher end better looking newer IPAD. This is the product that sells for five hundred dollars as opposed to the three hundred, twenty, nine dollars entry level, the eight hundred dollar ipad pro. ANA analysts expect an edge to edge display minus a home button and something that I'm pretty excited about touch ID with where you press the home button instead of using face id but touch ID will be on one of the buttons on the side of the unit I hate face id it never works for me, and of course, anybody with the mask no, it doesn't work for them either so I think this is pretty cool. The Apple Watch series six it's expected to be more about software than hardware with a more powerful processing chip it's expected to be able to detect blood oxygen levels and watch users could get an improved electrode cardiogram feature to check heart rate. Noted the roster currently is three, ninety, nine for the series five and one, ninety, nine for this series three. So I think series three is going to be replaced with a lower

Don't really need all the processing power. But if you're doing stuff with the Pencil augmented reality, some of the fun stuff that apple wants you to be doing, you'll need them more powerful chip and hopefully you'll ditch your old IPAD and get a new one.

Bowser: Washington D.C. had no intention of proposing removal of major federal monuments
"Or Muriel Bowser defended the report that she ordered off renaming or contextualizing monuments across the nation's capital, including initially federal monument. The Trump administration blasted DC Mayor Muriel Bowser. After the workgroup she put together put federal monuments including the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial on a list of places that should be renamed or contextualized. Because their names, stakes own slaves or had ties to racism. It was that our intention to do anything with the federal monuments in Memorial's federal monuments have been spin removed from the list.

Tips and Tricks: How to create a DIY teleprompter
"For our listeners. So stay tuned after the show for more. Hey this is Larry Becker and I'm filling in for the vacationing Jefferson Graham on talking tech on the author of the recently released book. Great on camera and today I've got some cool tips in insights for those of you. That need to deliver a message on camera. And what I want to talk to you about is teleprompter options today it yeah I've worked with traditional teleprompters and I've worked in a studio with a teleprompter operator great experience but most of us don't have that luxury. So these days what I use is an IPAD. So I wanNA tell you a little bit about some of the software options that you have and some of the hardware options and some twists on this that are a little bit different than you might expect I do teleprompter operator stuff different than most. People I know but it works great and it might even work great for you. I've been using the same piece of software since it came out the software that I like is called teleprompter plus and that's the plus sign in the number three. So teleprompter plus three is the APP that I use. I can't tell you how much it is because I bought it way back when and now when I go to the apple APP store, it just says oh Larry you already bought this do you want to download again but? It won't tell me the price. So I, don't know how much it is. It may be a free download within APP purchases I don't know but teleprompter plus three from a company called brain is what I use and the reason that I like it is it does everything you need to tell proper to do. You can make the size of the type bigger or smaller. You can make it scroll faster or slower. You can remote control it from a keyboard and you can do a lot of these things remote control. From keyboard like jump to the next paragraph or jumped to the previous paragraph, you have to put in points for that but is all really straightforward and very easy to do and run, and then if you actually have a real legit teleprompter hardware setup on your camera, like with that forty five degree angle see-through mirror glass. Then what you have to have is you have tabular teleprompter image flipped to mirror view and it can do that, and so I've done that over the years with this piece of software works just great. The next thing that you could use is a very popular application and I don't use this. But when it came out, I thought about it for a little while and then I ended up not getting it and it is called prompt smart pro prompt smart pro. Now, it used to be like twenty bucks I think now they're doing subscription and you gotta Pay Forty Bucks a year for it, and they have a whole lot of extras and features and cool stuff going on with it, and it can do everything that tell prompt plus three can do plus. It listens to you as you read the script and it advances the script based on you reading the script that's pro and a con all in one because if you go off script or if you screw up and you want to go back a little bit, you can't do that easily with this particular piece of software. Now, you can turn off where it listens to you and just use prompt smart pro with your remote Bluetooth Keyboard. So those are a couple different applications you can use them on the IPAD but make sure that you pay attention to how I use it. I do not have one of those expensive. Forty five degree angle mounted on the camera teleprompter setups. The reason that I don't have that I don't use that is because I discovered a longtime ago that if I five or six feet away seven feet away from the camera and the teleprompter is just below the Camera Lens and I'm reading from that teleprompter you can't tell I'm looking just below the Camera Lens. Now, if the cameras really close to me, you might be able to see that I'm looking right below the Lens but in the studio setup where I used to work in my home studio, the cameras always like five six. Seven feet away from me and with the camera that far away and the prompter, my ipad just below the camera, all I need to do is put my ipad on an Easel

I know that Jodi from eight would always tell him. You need to stop work on these Japanese and Mitch is he. Now they're you know they're got a new Bal and this and that and you know finding this and obviously you see what happened but I figured Mitch would be successful because he was going to work and you know just like today you see the guy he gets hurt. Tanny leaves it ninety one and the mechanics for the race team. They I mean there are hard guys. They're working at all there for one Golden. That did you ever. Do you ever remember saying like Oh.

You were like as a kid growing up in Canada. You were in the magazines ton. Yeah they loved you yes. Yeah and that helped me you know. I think I look back. Sometimes I go. I didn't want to be known as the black kid that's racing wanted to be known as a racer but that helped me get to where I could have just been another guy when you talked about speaking about being African American or black Speak does it. When did you start seeing racism like you said not back then but is this pro days like this kind of stuff where your local and national to you like that one in Florida people that seems odd given and what are you doing here and Like at the superman spectators racers panics but spectators. Yes motocross back then the pits. You are in a kate. Know this but you didn't have vans and stuff around. We'll the end. Yeah Vince Cage and you had a four by six foot area. That's where you put all your toolbox. All your stuff was in that area and people around you are around the outside and people could walk up and say something. Yeah and people would snip but for me. Just hear it a little for me. I learned a long time ago because my dad and what my dad grew up in. I mean I'd I grew up in the dead. South went through all kinds of racism. The real stuff well like diving in a pool. Everyone in the pool gets out except for him. Oh really yeah me. Kinda stuff you hear about this but it's unbelievable for me it meant nothing gets as I don't care I mean 'cause I always try and tell myself that there's only a few people that I put stock into it. They say something about me. That will hurt me otherwise I don't you know who are you to tell me some wasn't there another African American guy. What was his David Maclean with Maclean? Maclean Robert Mrs there. He they had an article in one. Racer X I think. That was a while ago with this guy but David Maclean was really good. Yeah I remember being. Yeah so the League is they. Let you test them. Bikes and stuff. You got to be around him and and that helped me a lot of doors and and I'll say like now I look back and I would tell kids today that you have to. You have to speak about yourself. Yeah and I was never that guy. Yes never that guy to do that. Yeah I always figured if I did good enough is GONNA help. Yeah that's the way it is. Yeah and I was never good at it. I didn't want the spotlight on me and I just wanted to go do my thing and and you know. Hopefully someone take notice but you can't be that way. Yeah Yeah Yeah Well. The guys would have helped you for sure. Yeah as far as that goes back right Interesting to they loved you man. You're all I remember all the time interview and he's coming back knee hurts. He's coming back. Yeah so the last results in the vote was your ninth at Saddleback. Five hundred good result. What happens after that? Do you keep racing.

Now by that time had had a couple of surgeries to and it just would swallow up and just get really bad and and like you said. The technology wasn't so great yellow it The doctor said look. You gotta quit so race. I think. Eighty five a little local eighty six touch eighty seven. I got a cow and wrote it a couple of Times said doctor had done.

Appreciate an also spoke to have my in studio guests for this one on one podcast former Southern California. Hot Shoe Factory Husqvarna Ryder. At one point I believe now working backward Husqvarna in the marketing end of things Andy Jefferson. What's up Bro? Show how are you? I'm wonderful how `bout you are coming in. Yeah Hey we had a good ride today on beautiful. I've really loved it. Yeah you're a big mountain bike guy road bike and mountain bike or mountain both out and we ride at lunch every day. I try to put miles in and just have a good time with it you you. You put a lot of miles and when you were racing. Were you a big trainer or is this something that came later. No we always. I always trained. I was because I I think for me when I was racing. I had to train because I wasn't talented. Let's say I mean so. I had to be in better shape and luckily for me I love training love running at the time and I love bicycling did a little bit of everything so from years of motoring. How is your body now? Like for my body's okay. My knees are a little bit. Yeah a little bit suspect sometimes but yeah my body's pretty good too too bad you were trying to new Husqvarna e bike. That's coming out in the fall. Our balancing that. We have some tests bikes over here. They just playing around with and and you know firstly because you have the intense. I and I'm not much of an e bike guys. I WanNa go to a guy as a lot of miles on them and got to ride with you today and see how the differences maybe in the versus what I have and and Yeah so we're just doing some testing on the bikes Yamahas. One coming out too. So yeah I think that's an avenue were some of the. Oem's are looking at you know. Hey what can we do here? So I think it's the next step for people you know you have a dirt bike and maybe you don't WanNa go out train. Yeah and you want to just go ride and to me. The e bikes the perfect. I mean and I'll tell you this is only my third right on it and after my first to ride I was kind of like I don't really don't but after today had a great time. Yeah we we hammered some trails. Pretty good and perfect if you do that and you made that comment when we were stopped you said out here on a regular bike. You'd be suffering. is unless you're elite elite. Guy. You'd be suffering if you on a regular bike and this just puts the fun and that's exactly it right like you're still getting a good workout. Think my heart rate today was like one forty five or something. So you're getting a good workout and you're able to go much further and have more fun and then you know you're not suffering and then tomorrow you can go back and ride again. Yeah didn't suffer. Yeah and and still you know we all try to run our heart rates and we probably all do too much heart rate. Doesn't have to be high to get a good work. You need to be at a steady PACE PACE. Today was perfect. Yeah like my buddy Paul per season shape and he's got a he's got an e bike any runs it in trailer boost because he has so much fun for me. I'm trying to lose weight. I'm trying to get better shape. You're in great shape so for me. I run an echo because I want to suffer. I want to lose weight. I WANNA grind right but there is that option late in rides and we had one section today that I hated and I told her I hate it. I just bumped up the trail. I got through the section. That's uphill technique techy rock stuff. And then I was able to go back down to ego and it's a perfect example of why he bike works great right and like. I said just like you're saying is for those people that you know. You're not out there. You don't you're not going to try and be next triathlete the marathon guy and all this. Cr- you just want to go ride and have fun. That's what is right. Husqvarna marketing for you. How long have you been there for been well? I was with the original. Let's say Husqvarna owned by BMW. Three years I started there in two thousand ten okay and then the company was sold to the corporation or Peer Industries owns. All of it was sold. I think in two thousand thirteen twelve thirteen and then so I moved over there so now if you WANNA count total. I've been there about eight or nine years. Which is I always think it's funny because you made your name riding Husqvarna against Japanese brands. When they were no longer the Great Husqvarna. Everybody grew up with and you were alone guy on Husky and then you end up working for years later. It's a full and for me. You know an like to be back with Husky and just the linear to the name. That was when I had a chance to get this job. I just said I have to do it right. I and it wasn't like I had my previous job for twenty seven years. I didn't have to go anywhere and I made pretty good money. Yeah and I worked for Office Products Company. Okay HOLD COPIERS. Fax Machine that kind of stuff and it was a friend of mine's a my childhood friends families visit early. Then they sold out okay and I didn't have to leave but when this came up and a guy your roots. I don't like I even talked to my wife and I said look. I really WANNA do this. I'm I'm like Oh copiers and I'm over this right now and I want to get back into the industry and luckily I got a job. Yeah so now when they were switched from BMW ownership and by the way those BMW LOOKING. Husqvarna were underrated. Yeah that's cool. Look W out. Yeah but when they switched over. Ktm were you nervous about losing your job where you come to you like. Were you stress in a little bit? Not a little bit but not much I I was and let me say for me and it's weird. I guess I've been in the right place at the right time. That's basically what it was. I was the guy at the time I did all the parts for Husqvarna and I'm GONNA call it. Bmw Escobar all parts all accessories. Yeah all the after sales so all that stuff had to be moved. Yeah so they I mean in a way. They couldn't get rid of me wherever I was lucky. I so I did all that. I made all that move from the stuff from it was up in New Jersey. Oh okay all down to Ohio Imon Tori and stuff away. That's obsolete all that stuff so then I came into the office and then it was like what am I gonNa do right John Eric. Burleson came to me and says hey we we need you to continue with this for now but we need an offered manager for the Husky Road team. And I'm like do you WanNa do that. Great Heck Yeah. That was last. Oh that's cool though. I don't think I remember you doing that. Yeah Yeah I mean I did it for Kimmy Wagons Timmy. Andrew Delong won the National Enduro Championship for the first time since nineteen six ski so since like Terry Cunningham Terry Alaska Paul. I pulled out exactly. It was pretty good and but I got to champion. Jacob Argue about one a championship from that year and I did it for like a year and a half almost two years and but the hard part was at the time I was still doing the part so There was one year that I traveled. Forty three weekends out of the really. All your wife's just at Fox the facts and copier writing and so that was kind of tiring and then it came up. They needed immediate guy because they didn't have anyone so I said sure and Timmy. Was there became the team manager or off road and I went over to media. How do you like the media things how do you? How do you enjoy that? I tell people every day. It's another one of those things in the right place the right time. It's the greatest job in the company. I really yes like today. I get to talk about dirt bikes bicycles. I get to do that every day. Yeah and someone pays me or I get to go riding right my boss. I can ride all. Yep Go to the he. He inspires us. He says go to the track and go ride. You're not talking about Moen Tom Owen. He's inspired you. I don't know if those words us with Tom Muskie. Yeah he's he's really a he's a different guy but he's one of those people like he makes me laugh. I have so many Moen Stories. Katya when you get in with him. He's the nicest guy from the outside G I get him with him. He's like your job is to go riding. Yeah take people right so as much as I can. I take my guys. We variety whether it's street bikes or dirt bikes out ever the we all know. Katie must've owned by the same company. And certainly had some Husqvarna people yell at me over the years for because I'm just like look Katie. Anderson Rides a Katie. And so what? We don't need to get into that. But how much different? How much differing philosophies or or divisions are there between Katie? I'm an Husqvarna when it comes to media duties for you you in the KTM guy. I don't even know well it would be and that's the thing now. I'm the Guy Oh you are. Atm Guy Gas Gas Guy. I'm the Husqvarna one okay. So there isn't really any now. There is now so I felt like when they made. Roger like the overseer Katie Mogo Husqvarna logo and. They'll soon have a gas gas. I would imagine I felt like when they did that with Roger. They relaxed their philosophy of like. Hey we're two different company right and I think at first they were trying to establish what what Husqvarna was going be. Yeah and it was really. I mean we were adamant we weren't allowed to park next to each other. We weren't I mean. Even though we work together you see till but outwardly wanted to make sure some kind of separation. We couldn't talk about the Waikato's thing that would happen. Somebody's I got a few things and I said I don't care right. You can't fool me. That's right donges by Jason. And you're one hundred percent right it is. It's the same but our philosophies in marketing are today are different wholly opposite so with. Ktm is like the Color Orange It's ready to race. It's in your face. It's I'm GonNa Win Barn Husqvarna completely on the other spectrum of where the fun guys like. We want almost boutique. We WanNa be fun we want. We don't want we're racing WANNA win. There's no doubt about it. But by the same token we want to go on the desert and take a bunch of Ri- and that has nothing to do with racing. And when you look at Jason as a as a start versus you guys like a different Dean Wilson Right. 'cause WE TRY TO BE WE WANNA be different brand and and you know the the thing that you run into when especially when you have two brands like this as you start getting a lot of you know eating away at the other brand my this brand. We're we're trying to stay away. I I don't want to go after a CPM person. I want to go after Honda..
"jefferson" Discussed on Talking Tech
"Okay so it's an a day on talkie text chatting red-green is GonNa Grill Jefferson Graham. I'm in Los Angeles and Shannon is in the Washington DC area. That's right we're both quarantining. So Jefferson I've been thinking of you under these quarantine conditions. I just know that you're a person who is constantly out taking video photographs. Interviewing people podcast. How have you been holding up in just about six weeks? Quarantine Rough I. I went out last week And I went to the beach and I photographed and I got a lot of grief from my mother and my wife on it but I really wanted to. Just get out again. The idea was that I started this little video project of just pictures of waves period. Just waves no talking no music nothing but waves and I read the two beaches rope and so I went down and photograph them to mice shock. There were hundreds of people. They're having a good time mid week. So that's not the image that we've been been told but I really missed out there with a camera and I can't wait to do more of it and and sit in a restaurant that's what I want more than anything else. Yeah it's been really difficult for a lot of people and I think it's probably I wanted to know if he felt a little concerned or how you were feeling when you were taking the picture to the people on that really crowded breach. What was it like for you emotionally? It was I thought there it is you know and But I stood far enough away that I wasn't getting very close. The football game through me seeing those about fifteen young boys playing football tackle football on the beach did not seem like the wisest thing in the world to do right gotten into wanting to be attacked journalists. And what was your first assignment but had a huge impact on you in the world attack reporting. So it's a two fold question will first of all remember that when I was thirteen. I got my first camera and my first guitar. So that that set me down the path and I've always been into new technology. I was one of the first to have a VCR so thirteen hundred dollars. I spent for VCR and loved every minute of it because I was a TV fanatic. A Mazer and so I covered td for many years here USA Today before I covered TV. I covered the birth of home video of at the Hollywood reporter. So I I was the cable. Tv video editor and so is in detect. They are on all laser discs in all the new things and so I said I got tired of covering TV. There was a beat open for covering tech. I raised my hand from the first day. I did something. I don't remember what the article was but I knew that was it and that was twenty years ago and you've never looked back. Never looked back some of the highlights was going to interview the founders of Google. At at a time that I was so comfortable in my body that I went to the interview in green shorts in Orange. T shirt something today. That's fantastic worry about your fashion show. I want hear more about your fashion choices in those early years Well there was no video camera. Running Didn't care now. Now it's always a a plane shirts but naps Yup. A t-shirt just doesn't cut it. I think that's right. Yeah I I was on zoom call in time in quarantine where someone was presenting an award to a colleague of Mine and they were wearing sweatshirt and right. Now I'm just wearing a t shirt so I'm not WanNa talk but it is. I think it's still important to dress a certain way. When you're on a zoom call. Yeah I would agree dress for success. Totally totally so Shannon Rate Green Washington D. C. Actually Virginia.

The food mix of continental indistinctly new world that makes the Thomas Jefferson claimed as distinctly American Virginia. Hams sweet potatoes corn born in Accra. Chris Pippen apples prepared with a French flair for Cossiga techniques and recipes sauces. He'd so enjoy enjoyed during his years in Paris. As an envoy of the newly United States prepared alongside French ingredients almonds anchovies cheese and raisins and nectarines Koreans in musters of varying shades. In Tang dinner at Monticello would started for. The guests would often find their host already in the dining room. It's walls painted chrome yellow. Jefferson would be reading a book pulled from the shelves by the fireplace philosophy. Zoology architecture texture religion politics the natural scientists who still very Jefferson. The contents of the books would spill out into the dinners themselves. He I love delivery table free-flowing conversations tails well told vigorous debate ideas presented in refined all helped by the wine that flowed live freely to shipped over from Europe or does and Maderas Chianti riesling grapes. That grew on fog hung hills that roll down to the Rhine by the pictures on those yellow walls. Copies of old masters Grand European landscapes alongside American ones Niagara the natural the bridge harpers ferry. Just as grand. We're meant to start the conversation valued so on travel on geology. And Trade on America's Carr's places and its place in the world because these dinners always so very Jefferson. We're so American by his design shooing the British formality. It never ending courses rule bound in ritualized. Hoity toity instead. Appetizers main dishes would be laid out on the table. Diners honors could choose what to eat with. What in win when they wanted more more courses more French wine. There were more of Jefferson's designs in the dining room in Monticello were amenities of his own. Invention special dumb waiters by which bottles editions could come up from the kitchen in the cellar or be sent back down special. Missile doors and the walls that would revolve would feel like magic and reveal shelves with cakes and pastries plates. To come or go guess would marvel at. They're hosting genuity the some grumble later in their diaries. They didn't appreciate having to get up and serve themselves. Jefferson would say that the presence of servants would disrupt up the rhythm of conversation the free flow of ideas among free people in free nation. While he and his guest spoke on poetry on liberty and as is the shelves revolved as though by magic is the dumb. Waiters disappeared down below. His diners to be interrupted were overheard by the enslaved people working below or behind the revolving walls the people who had shocked the corn and time the souffle chip the ice had called it out from the Ice House in crafted the brick from which was built it stacked them according to their masters design. Who cleaned the plates in stoke the fires and who had learned proper planning from James. James Hemmings an enslaved man. Jefferson brought with him to Paris so he could learn French cooking and bring it back to Monticello when he returned to Virginia where he lived with his sister. Sally Allie Jefferson owned and fathered children by whom he also owned new catalog. The winds Polish the silver slaughtered. The pigs hung their bodies up to dry work. Made the dinner out of sight out of mind so talk of freedom could flow at Monticello which was so. Very Jefferson Deficit.

"jefferson" Discussed on Aerial America
"Jefferson lived here at Monticello to him. It was more than just a home and according to some historians it serves as a kind of architectural autobiography. The name Monticello means Little Mountain in Italian a fitting description of the location where the self taught architect chose to build his home construction on the forty three room mansion began in seventeen seventy shortly after Jefferson was first elected to public office. It went through many designs and redesigns and wasn't finished until eighteen own. I the last year of his presidency Jefferson was influenced by the designs of the late Italian architect Columbia and his travels to France inspired him to add skylights and the famous Dome Room Jefferson who values privacy left the house surrounded by trees he did clear enough space for several gardens were the avid horticulturist room more than two hundred fifty kinds of vegetables and herbs aw Jefferson once said I am as happy nowhere else and in no other society and all my wishes end or I hope my my days will end at Marcello. His days did end here on July. Fourth Eighteen twenty six exactly fifty two years after American Independence Jefferson left instructions that his gravestone should be an obelisk and he also wrote his his own Epitaph Hugh was buried Thomas Jefferson author of the Declaration of American independence of the statute the Virginia for religious freedom and father of the University of Virginia Jefferson who didn't even been mentioned being the country's third president clearly didn't want his work at Uva to be forgotten.

got an opportunity to play for a championship can't do what does he do anything different was hop do that's like because I've always wondered when they say coaches like pop is the is the best right now or bill belichick grades like what is what what is he doing what have you just don't ever fucking say the name wide my coach in the Olympics Larry Brown is a hall of fame coat but I wouldn't put him anywhere near the same as Abella check or anywhere I wouldn't put them anywhere coach Carol Carol Yeah I really like Dan they're seventy coach Carroll lives like three houses down from me shuttle yes yeah I've played volleyball with them play volleyball out of an Uber is his his wife played vibe Jayme Desi with her that's one of my good friends knows her and so we used to always kind of play right hi there how to this day we play on twenty th street right by their house there you go twenty eighth street everybody we got out I don't know what is pop do because because you played for a few coaches he just he just there is no excuses right there is no excuses and he is he's he's like a drill sergeant that you love right and I would not be the player that I I grew the even later in my career without him teaching me in fucking whooping my ass and bill faulk and I I just got navy he's Oh yeah he says full service on you that's what he's saying he's serve you and you know what he comes from military background you know went to the four so he's a very like do your job no fucking excuse and then he's also behind all of that kind of military he's a brilliant mind and he's a he's the president with a GM and then he's in then the coat so he's bringing in his players if he does he famously wave Stephen Jackson right before the postseason couple years now because like he has that power most coaches would go to a president and it's like ell if you're not getting along it's the postseason we don't want you know he is he is the judge jury and the executioner so he controlled he's the one that dictates how much he's going to pay you do you play harder for a coach when you do respect him on multiple levels like that or do you just need to go already knows his basketball shit and that's it well you you you go in there with a lot less questions and that's why guys have struggled lamarcus Aldridge you look at them onto Rosen there's a train position when you're successful earlier on your career and then you show up in San Antonio it's like hey we appreciate everything that you've done to get here we respect your talent we have you here but this is what we're going to need from you this is how we want to play the balls now going to go through you're not doing okay so ball serving it applebee's and then you become a manager cheesecake factory we love what you've done B.'s but we got a bigger bigger menu here right and Steph it's best what's different there and it takes a little bit of time to adjust because not everybody can adjust like that no because you understand you know guys can be studs in Highschool studs in college to a franchise and all of a sudden gale college like you did until and just crush all for eight years yes six time all star then you show up till but even if he didn't WanNa Championship you show up in San Antonio and he's one five and he's like okay that's cool this is what we're going to do and that's a mind that's a mind thought that's a dude national chains that can check your ego at the door which bigger egos I mean when you've won like that and you're going to a situation where you're the guy right yeah take us to the college actually takes all we're back to when are we going to talk about the college thing in California now allowing players get paid that's awesome by the way I mean when that happened when Sunday yesterday the Gavin Newsom the other side I'm the bill four years out it's four years out right I think this is the raiders thing to ever to because it may it like it's going to change guys because now California's GonNa have essentially its own league is the NC double A. steps up while this is one thing that they don't have an address that there's other states with similar bills so these other states are now starting to propose the bill in California everyone thought cornea quote unquote was a bunch of dumb hippies when they legalize marijuana for for medicinal use at fifteen years ago and now half of America's doing yeah legal right away and there's good and bad things to it but like what they're basically saying is like Oh this kid over here who is a snowboarder can have a youtube channel make me off of his stuff and be on a full academic scholarship this kid who was playing for this university who has to do all of these extra things can't get a job can't doing is ooh can't do anything when news his likeness in a video game on selling his Jersey Se you would see so many Bush jerseys in the stadium and I'm like he's not of course give them a fucking gardenia what's tough is like understand it's like you know Larry Scott the commissioner yeah of the pack twelve you know he's the highest paid commissioner in college sports like almost six million dollars a year yeah and that's not even the SEC the the he's making six million dollars a year and you know and they're talking about like these kids that might make X. amount and understand their only in college for two three possibly for years yeah this is a short time like he could be the commissioner for the next ten years that's in let's say he's doing that if he's got that he made he made sixty million dollars being the commissioner of and you know and he does work extremely hard and he's done a lot of great things and one of the things that you would hear is like if they're like hey commission would have we you know at the SEC Commissioner Hey what did we cut your money wait a second I work really hard yeah oh so they don't well they're getting a free education and it's like when they when they have to go to practice a day make an even for kids that are doing that a lot of kids when you're going to USC during your summer you're doing internships during summers you're working odd getting experience these kids might try and pursue something but all summer long they're training they're doing rehabbing knee injuries they're doing all this other stuff and it just like hey you got a degree you know you're actually at a deficit no BS legally oh no you're not networking the same as a normal kid right and there's a lot of different conversations going because people have like Student Loan Dad's stock when you saw Tim Tebow do his rant about like how he he is how he is totally against that I know a lot of athletes came out with like tell him this this this law this law isn't for you and get that and that's the thing and I think we've lost a little bit of that in this country not to get too crazy but understanding other people's views and respecting other people's awesome cool when it's time for you vote vote no but like and that's fine I'm not gonna like Tim Tebow like what the fuck do you where's my fuck yeah so I don't I don't I don't mind that but I think it's always good to listen to other people's opinions because you'll just learn more we don't have to get into the Republican Democrats I'd like Yo listen to what they're saying some of them right and it's like you got to find some middle ground and I understand what T. Bo sang but I also understand the other side coming from a kid whose parents were too odds you know I could never ask for money call my parents if any way I would like to like one hundred bucks homes in two hundred and fifty bucks in these little bitty things that if I were to do anything I could risk my eligibility right and then like like my roommate in when was it. USC He was on the school volleyball team. I couldn't buy him lunch no I could be anyone else lunch yeah by the way. USC got into a lot of volleyball trouble because they're coach their coach was a part of the scandal that thou hundreds of thousands right like illegally recruiting pr saying that kids were recruits this is like from he was he was on the bench but like it was yeah it was like from three zero six God you're fucking we usually the Arizona days though yeah I mean so when you're playing basketball which again Phoenix Okay Yeah Love Phoenix some of the best comedy loves three towns I grew up in Lindow Nice but not like not Arena Glendale Glendale Phoenix Glendale yeah like maybe ten minutes from the head mall so when everyone's like everyone's Glendale the stadiums like now that name aitor window the giant Toaster yes there's mazing yeah so I'm I'm I'm a west side Phoenix so that must have been extra sweet to play there yeah they won the National Championship in ninety seven and I was a junior been in ninety eight I'm not panning out great and just not making the transition I still to this day I'm like how did Miles Simon not become here's a great college player gray gray caused by one of the great 'cause player in his generation and that's one of those things like this great example this is a guy that won a national championship could have been a first round pick decided to go back to school and still they lost in the elite eight to Andre Miller and a great team and they were number one in the country and he was first team all American and gets drafted in the second round sprains his ankle in training cam and just never got a chance this guy turned down millions of dollars right turn down millions of dollars and if he could have gone to school he could have made a couple hundred grand on his likeness could have done some stuff that could have shut them up further what do you say to the guy do you want guys that go stay in school if I know that I'm making fifty grand a.

New York flight especially like a red red is so you say you prep food bring sandwich that's adorable I don't I don't prep it bring it to eat it at the kitchen and every deal with reading rainbow shirt kid duct tape in the corner there you caleb and it's quiet Ah what who would you see like obviously shack comes to mind is like one of the guys who could just eat anything because he was burning so much stuff and still but like appetite was a certain guys that burn that many calories but couldn't go to town because their bodies just weren't adding up now there's a Lotta guys right there's a lot of guys tablets yeah your metabolism the older you see that when guys are super young they spend their whole first part of their career trying to bulk up you look at Jaanus is done with Braun dead at the the second right but then all of a sudden you see them get later in their career and then they try and lose weight right because it's that pounding and you're new to slim up Dwight Howard is nice skinny as he's ever been trying to get some of that lift back you're trying to lighten the load on your joints so it's like you just have this evolution of guys and you see it now because we watch it much for thirty years you guys are super skinny because they'll get drafted in one thousand nine hundred and they spend that first part of their career trying to build wait Jaanus as buck and a huge Jack Jack is that that's just the evolution so do we all have hired Tom Brady's trainer and then they can play Robert Kado ice cream I'd rather do I'll just accept Aziz time I'm not doing avocado now because you because according to your wikipedia page and I and I would like you're not you unretired right that was the guy retired the sample we retire retirement I want a championship that lasted a good forty eight hours sure because they told me they were amy more money to come back and I thought we'd had I thought we were going to be the best team we win a championship again fucking Kevin Durant went to went to Goldens now happens do you guys around the league talk the same way we saw on like the talking head shows everyone's like do you join the guys that you're trying to be or see this I was not I'm I was never a great player and I think that's more or less good claire very good player the NBA a very good. I think I'm a pretty good twenty four hour fitness plan you probably are thank right but I will say this conversation for the great players to have that tried like battling each other for legacy whether it's Lebron our staff or Kobe doesn't Mj like those are the conversations though that the next level guys are like well fuck it that's unfair when Ray Allen went to the Miami Heat yeah I know what the Celtics do out here battling for second that's it you really think that that happened I knew we had a chance but it was like those guys were so good and Kevin is Kevin is so good news and I do you get a can you hear the people that are and I just saw you think it was on the jump go to what's it got in the clippers big hair mantras and you're like dude this why I love you on the shows and why you're so good a good conversationalist but you just like shoot people straight and you also can relate to players and non players but you were like dude come on be straight with me when you got why am PG you were like all right if we don't make it to the finals you said it's a wash of a season and he was like I mean it because it's a wash season it's like I mean we all make the playoffs probably and you're like dude it's like yeah it's it'll be a bummer like it'll be won't matter and look I have no problem with him as he still a young player and he's very very good I'm no problem with him saying that externally but inside that locker room I know the true like you got a guy like Paul George one of the most I told the best players in the league and the echo why the.
"jefferson" Discussed on MonsterTalk
"Like. That's the tradition and Jefferson is kind of like just gobsmacked right. I mean this is this is now do exactly right. This is the president of Yale you know being like Oh yeah the bones the giants from bibles and Jefferson just like no no what there's got to be. There's got to be a better explanation for this so that's that's sort of that sort of the start of this for Jefferson right a he's some as background is lower and obviously in politics two was he actually doing this old lacquer armchair over the actually going on expeditions and Hanes on stuff so yes so Jefferson yeah so Jefferson's education has yet so he goes the College of William and Mary and he studies mathematics and philosophy and he but he also develops this really deepened abiding love for you know what they didn't have the term term then Beret Bo Bo we would today call science right of just like all all stripes <hes> and what is it. They caught natural philosophy. Is that the natural philosophy at the time yeah so or you know I mean if you had a more of a religious Bentos like natural theology you know so but yeah basically the study of nature and <hes> and Yeah Jefferson yeah he develops his very deep abiding love love for Science and Jefferson was was methodical. I mean you know this was not what this is important part of the story to right because I mean so far is basically a professional scientists right Jefferson is not Jefferson is a as a politician he works as a lawyer and then eventually gets involved in politics with the American revolution and becomes ambassador and and eventually Vice President President etc but you know he's he's not a slouch about this and so in in the case of <hes> of like these bones right so he finds out these bones are in Kentucky right there basically justly roading out of the ground round out this salt lick and so Jefferson wants to actually see them. He wants to look at them for himself. Now he doesn't go down to Kentucky because he's otherwise occupied but <hes> and this is a great part of the story <hes> so he gets somebody somebody to go get the bones for him and so the first person he dispatches his actually Daniel Boone the legendary frontiers. Who's who yeah what else do we know? We had a coon skin hat. That's right. I'm so one of the People's Daniel Boone one of the other people is this Guy General George Rogers Clark <hes> who was the commander army and the West and it's Clark who actually ends up agreeing to <hes> to go down there <hes> get a bunch of these bones gathered them up and ship them back to <hes> to Jefferson <hes> up north or up in Virginia sorry not north but yet will further north <hes> and Jefferson Jefferson and so Jefferson is able to to examine these bones for the first time and the thing that really strikes him about them is <hes> well so so not surprisingly one of the things that so he fiercely disagrees with boof on about them because bef- on I knew about these bones to write it had been a French explorer who had originally found them so fond of course knew about them and so the thing that really struck everybody about them was that there these huge bones and their teeth in there and so some of the teeth are clearly tusk's like those of an elephant right <hes> but the other thing are the molars right they have these mass dedicating teeth or what they called grinders back then and these are not like teeth that are found in in modern elephants and so there's so that's the first big mystery right because the assumption is that these are all the bones of one animal and so it's like well what kind of animal has both tusks and grinding grinding teeth because it's not any kind of animal that we know about and Buffon answer is actually. He thinks that you know they're probably not the same animal. He thinks they're two different animals. He thinks the tusks are those of an elephant and the teeth.

"He was Thomas Jefferson <hes> so Thomas Jefferson is one of our founding fathers in the United States so he was third president from he was our second vice president. He was our first secretary of state. <hes> he was also the author of the American Declaration of Independence so he was he was a pretty prominent important person in in the history the founding of the United States and <hes> as as I'm going to argue <hes> he's also really important in the history of crypto zoology too which is not one of his achievements that he's a he's usually recognized for yeah indeed. I didn't didn't know anything about this. Did you like not until her justice presentation so no now I did know about one tiny aspect of it. I remember watching among the it was Kim Burns did Lewis Clark documentary and they were talking about <hes> on the loose and Clark Expedition Jefferson was specifically asking Lewis Clark or to look for specific animal but I don't spoil that so <hes> will let let Justin get into that but no I was basically completely ignorant of this and my hope is that our listeners will also be somewhat ignorant and we'll be excited to learn you stuff. I mean I mean what we want to do as much as possible I think of <hes> our audience is like a giant coloring book and we're just coloring them in with science in history so <hes> in waiter I am. I don't know where that is coming from. That's probably Tequila so just this move on fresh. Okay I lost Thomas Jefferson have to do with cryptic zoology so yeah. This is not an aspect of Jefferson's life that is is I I would agree with you. Guys is it's not particularly well known <hes> which is not to say that has not been well documented that was one of the things that really surprised me about this when I started digging into it is that they're actually a lot of books and essays and and papers out there that talk about this but the kind of like Blake was saying they only talk about little facets of it and so what I really wanted to try and kind of put like this whole picture together about Jefferson's sort of crypto zoological logical career and and also just actually how important it was because this was not just some kind of like Lark he had on the side. I think that this is actually very instrumental to understanding Jefferson as a person and also <hes> it's instrumental to understanding branding his conceptualization of what America <hes> shouldn't and would become <hes> so to really though get into understanding the relationship between Jefferson encrypt zoology as I talked about right in my presentation you can't really start with Jefferson you have to start with <hes> another guy <hes> a very different person and that was a George Louis Leclerc <hes> who was also known as the count of Buffon and he he was a French <hes> scientist is basically a celebrity scientist. He was born in <hes> seventeen seven and he went to the University of angers. <hes> if I'm remembering that correctly yeah the University of anger is where he graduated in seventeen thirty two <hes> and almost immediately after he got out of college he was given a a job with the French Royal Academy of Science in their engineering department and then that immediately landed him a contract with the French navy <hes> working on redesigning their ships and because of ships were out of would at the time Jeff von decide that he needed to not only know everything there was to know about ships he need to know everything there was no about trees which meant that he they need to know everything there wasn't about plants which led to this.
"jefferson" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I'm gonna be really honest, and I do, and it's funny that you say that about watch much my language, I feel bad like I had no idea. I would the way they did the the players should Beaune in. It's not a knock on them. Like, I know anytime I say a word I need to any this soom. It's going to be recorded and put out there. But it was one of those things where you're talking and you're kinda cracking jokes with some guys. And you don't know what they're just gonna use one clip. I really did not remember Cussing that much like I located that professional as a person that really doesn't cuss that much. But it was more of like when we were describing, and I really kind of took my back to that place in that moment. That's just kind of just how it was. So I I regret a little bit that it's gone viral. And I'm like. Doing it as much, but it just part of it. I don't care that you were Cussing. I'm asking about the actual content of the story saying that oh bleep. I better. Get a thank God. I don't want any part of this that kind of honest, even though you explain it very well right here on air, but given that kind of honesty, and that kind of sound bite that it is is that a story that you would have told if you were still an active player with. Saying that I want. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Hundred percent anybody. That knows me knows that. But you know, I am kind of unapologetically honest. And I think anybody that knows me my teammates like that. They don't question whether or not I thrive for big moments, or you know, because that's all I'm really matters. I don't care. What fans? I don't care. What media thing? I don't care what my team thing and Jason Kidd or Kenyon Martin. Or LeBron James all of these guys? I firmly believe if they were like, hey, would you go to battle with Richard? Could you trust Richard on the floor and a big moment? Would you give him the ball? If you needed to in a big moment. I like to believe all of them say, yes, because they all have and we've all been successful in certain spaces. So I don't really care to be honest. And you know, it's like, you know, talent, you know, people saying like, hey, you know, I cried when my kid was born or stuff like that. Look, if you're having a motion moment, or you're giving something like brutally honest like that's just the reality. Situation. However, the pundits want to dissect it and say, what do you think about a player saying, this, do you think less or more? It's like, I really don't care. What people think about me? And that I wanna get a minute from this guy, Richard Jefferson with us, and we hope to talk to you again on Monday. We're going to talk to me. I mean, I mean that was a good question too. By the way, don't don't take my answer the wrong way. Thanks RJ. Try hard. Stop calling him on. It's a little too chummy. We're trying to do journalism around here. So RJ, what can you tell us about Kyrie Irving? And that's like a minute of undestood honesty is someone who's been around all that stuff. I think there's a lot of different emotions, obviously, I get a ton of tax when people that were in that circle. And I got a ton of people that are outside that circle questioning it. I think there was there is a little bit of sadness. There's a little bit of you know, frustration. I think you always say. This you look at you know, Shaq and Kobe were they they come back together when they're forty years old and they're talking about. Yeah. We were probably a little too egotistical. At that moment that we probably we stayed together probably would have won one or two more championship. But in that moment, all they care about is their own future. And they all have their own destinies kind of change. And I think, you know, Cairo Irving for him. He did understand because he was in gun guy.
