"And the Galilean. The eventual reach of Syriac is remarkable both in terms of geography and the variety of texts preserved in it. It went east as far as southern India and later even to China. For instance, a stone steely erected in the eighth century A D during the reign of the Chinese Tang Dynasty, has a bilingual inscription in both Chinese characters and in the Syria alphabet. There is a wide variety of religious texts in Syriac and non religious text to, including scientific and legal manuscripts. In fact, Syriac was an important bridge for ensuring ancient Greek knowledge was preserved and made its way into medieval libraries and scriptorium. Tell us how this worked. Allison, the Syria monasteries had been acting as institutes of higher education for for the churches and also wider society, I suppose And that's where there was a lot of intellectual activity, um, as well as teaching students who would one day hold high office, either in local administration or in the churches. The scholars there produced things like chronicles, scientific treatises and very importantly, translations of Greek works. Now It's not that easy to translate from Greek because this is an Indo European language. Into Syriac, which is part of the Semitic family of languages. There are big differences in the alphabet, obviously, between Greek and syriac between the different grammatical structures of the languages. They have vocabulary And also, of course, the direction of writing was Greek goes left right and Syriac goes rights left, but the Syriac scholars developed techniques of translating between Greek and Syriac.

It is a little, Seda said. Wanna Hunt, Hunter said. Wanna, Um, there was a king and he had a daughter, who was very fair and beautiful. There was another person he used to go hunting Hunter. One day he went hunting and killed a lot of partridges. He put the partridges on his back and passed in front of the castle. He saw the queen's daughter on the balcony. He fell in love with her. Professor Otto Yeah. Astra of Heidelberg Airliner and the most recently Thailand. Universities has been studying know Aramaic dialects for some half century, and it's one of the most respected scholars of new Aramaic and Arabic languages. The start of his research in the 19 sixties coincided with the emergence of portable tape recorders, and this revolutionized fieldwork in many disciplines, including linguistics. So we asked him how the scholarly understanding of neo Aramaic has changed over his lifetime, especially in the last 2030 years. We have seen a profusion of large collection of status from all Kinds of different Aramaic dialect, And this has helped us to gain a completely new view about the field of neo Aramaic. With all these new data, we were able to establish a kind of virtual map of new Aramaic, a map which covers in fact, most of the Middle East, starting in northeastern Syria. Southeastern turkey, going through all of northern Iraq and deep into northern, northwestern Iran and central Iran, and we were able tool classify the Paris Aramaic dialect. And to to classify them into groups and to see, uh how they are connected. And what are the main groups? This was only possible because of the huge amount of new material. No. All those dialect sought. The large majority do not exist anymore or do not exist anymore in the road, original location. So this is one point and if I may add one more little point. We have found an amazing linguistic variation. Among the various dialects. But as people have been moving away from the villages and towns where neo Aramaic was spoken, and as the old farming way of life also vanishes. The linguistic variety is fast disappearing. Some might argue that this is inevitable, so I wondered what the case might be for keeping aromatic going as a living, evolving language..

"I'm Scott Slade in W S. P s top story. Another coronavirus come back. Two new variants, first seen in India are now driving cases back up across the United States. WSB Michelle Wright joins us live with details of how many of the cases we're seeing here in Georgia Scott. That's right. These two new, highly contagious variants could be on their way to becoming the most dominant strains around the country. Doctor Jeffrey Kahn says it could be a long suffering cycle. My concern is that there's going to be Lingering covid for months, if not years. If we don't take advantage of this particular situation right now and get everybody vaccinated, the Delta and Kappa variants discovered in India earlier this year have not only made it to the U. S. But right here in Georgia, the DPH says that they know of seven Delta and for Kappa cases, but say there are likely several more that are floating around. That is, of course, jeopardizing the drop in Covid 19 cases we've been seeing recently. Explains CDC director Dr Rochelle Will Enschede get another decrease of nearly 30% from the prior seven day average, but most importantly, a 94% decrease from covid 19 cases since January of this year. As for these new variants, there is an upside. The vaccines are showing themselves to be quite effective against them. Here in Georgia, the Health Department says. Just 35% of all Georgians are fully vaccinated, though. Reporting live, Michelle, Right? 95.5 WSB one more thing here. How do you manage your risk? White House chief Science officer in Covid 19.

"Well as we just reported, the CDC and the FDA have put use of change A vaccine on pause here. Health officials saying that it should enhance confidence in safety, particularly over the longer term at Baxter has global news from the 9 60 news from Ed. Yeah, very important of a longer term. You're right, Brian. Dr. Anthony Fauci says it should be a brief pause based on an abundance of caution. This is a really rare event. If you look at what we know so far. They have been six out of the 6.85 million doses, which is less than one in a million, and the White House coronavirus task force had Jeffrey Zain says it should really be reassuring FDA acting the way they did today. Shows that they are indeed the gold standard, and I think that should reassure the American public that It will be very diligent. And conservative and how they approach the vaccines. And Dr Jeffrey Kahn at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School for Public Health says, surprising to know that it's AstraZeneca. It's the same thing that AstraZeneca is going through to. JJ and AstraZeneca. Vaccines are similar in the way that they're built so Again, You know, it's not terribly surprising to see a very small number of cases of blood clotting in the change a implementation so far and Dr Concepts this again should reassure the public of safety when it is available, and Dr Fauci says it's all based on science was not only allows us to take a look at the cases and learn more. It is also a signal out there to help the physicians. So all Fauci science and President Biden have chimed in saying this will not slow the process of getting all Americans vaccinated. In fact, Fizer says, it's upping production. Now Moderna has now announced his well new research, it says after six months over 90%. Efficacy remains.

Eight minutes past the hour. Let's get to Walter Todd, president, chief investment officer and managing director at Greenwood Capital. So, Walter, perhaps you heard me mention that the performance in the markets today kind of suggests that inflation is already priced in because he got a little bit of a hot number, and the market's really didn't didn't pay too much Attention yields actually a little bit. Lower but s so if that's priced in, does it suggest that growth is already priced into Yeah, Well, good evening. Um yeah, I think to a certain degree in the short term. I think you could say that. I mean, it's a tough, tough to read the response today, given the J and J News in terms of yields reacted, but I think it's safe to say there's a lot of good news discounted in the market. I think a zoo we start to get earnings tomorrow. You've had significant moves in the banks and financial into these earnings numbers. We've seen this the past two reporting seasons where they run hot into the numbers and then sell off after very good, fundamental numbers, which we expect so I think in the near term It would be healthy for the market to kind of take a breather here, where extended a lot of different metrics. But I think the outlook for the year from a fundamental standpoint still remains very good of the J and J News, you know, notwithstanding today And I guess you know the bank's going to be the highlight of the forthcoming earning season to start. At least we got a whole welter of them reporting this week. What do you expect them to say? I mean, of course, there'll be people be looking at how much they're worth. Their forecasts are on on top of that. There's a there's been a clear out performance of a banks of late. Compared to nearly any other asset class. Yeah, That's right. I mean, if you look at the past six months they have, you know, trounce the broader market. You know, JP Morgan up 70%. Like America of over 75. So I think it turns of the reporting, You know, everything's going the right way for them. The yield curve steepening emanates role in trading. Should be good ones are picking up so to your point, you're gonna have these huge kind of numbers that come out over the next couple of weeks. J. P. Morgan could be up to an 85% of the GPS based this year of the year. These base effects are going to be kind of very confusing. But the important thing is gonna be what it is. See for the rest of the year. And do they see, you know, continued outlook for growth as we head through the rest of 22 21, then looking at in the 2022. It's a little bit harder. Look out that far, but we're gonna need to see that for these sides to continue to work this year. Yeah, I got a slightly different take on it. The banks have been flat for the last month as though they've kind of priced in. You know where they're at, But they're only 10% higher than where they were last February before you know, they fell 50%, and that's a broad index. That's the exit left. So you're only 10% higher. The economy looks a lot stronger at the moment now coming out of this than it probably did last February, right? We don't have enough time to get into it just here, Walter, But we'll pick up on what we expect Not only fun bank.

But he's over using don that girlies i would say he's completely passes expiration date. I wouldn't be surprised if levy on bell had one more decent. Like i'm not saying prime thousand rushing thousand receiving labor on bell by any stretch the immagination nation the jets. Horrible offense line his entire career there. The second sign i was laughing like this guys can be tackled. The backfield is trying to be patient. Then eventually gonna get cut makes his way to kansas city. He doesn't fit the system whatsoever. I could see him having a little bit of success and coming at a price tag. That is very very small. I could see it. I could see he could fit. I don't think the steelers would go back there. I don't either. I honestly honestly. That's why like james. Why i james at this point in his career and it levy on bells this point eleven bells career jays white brings you very similar similar stuff And i think he'd be cheaper. And i think he brings more in the leadership and character depart- part minton bell really well sides. Terrell edmonds is a better rapper than le'veon bell. Okay i do. I mean personally for me. I don't ever see the steelers going back to their. I felt i felt like when he got franchise tag. That was the shot we were saying. Here here's our olive branch if you don't take it we're not going to see you again. I'm perfectly fine with that. But i know i saw somebody and i'm sorry i can't give credit to whoever it is. I don't see it in the chat. But jesse james wouldn't say was a terrible terrible pickup in free agency if you can get him cheap. That's another one. He was a solid number two not great number two but he was very solid and detroit just was like we'll throw insane money at you for. I don't know why they did that. Choices dumb. that was dumb contract or jesse. Not that i blame jesse james man. If someone's going to drastically overpaid me. And i'm gonna fail out of that job in a couple of years. You know what. I'll take it. I'll take it go ahead promote me way past my ability to to do the job. That's fine you want to hire me as a rocket scientists and pay me a ton of money. I'll do it. I can't build rockets. You're gonna fire me pretty quick. But i'll take the paychecks until you figure that out and he caught that ball just also. Yeah gentle james rule. The jesse james chasse. I think a few recently cut players that formerly were steelers definitely at people to keep on the radar eljay for he was released a that could be fit. All that vince williams is cut but what owner. He's a better version of yuji. Three and mortis yuji. Three can't stay healthy. I believe it's as back that's been bugging him for his entire career at this point in. Who even knows if you g. Three's even on this team next year. Which her team. That's desperate need of inside linebacker depth. That could be a spot that they could be looking at but as we approach the end of our show here. I kinda do a quick round table on two different thoughts because i think These are pretty prevalent things floating around the steelers kind of internet base right now but starting off with running back. I'll start with geoffrey on this one to go to call in and i'll answer it butts. A who do you think will be the steelers running back number one on week. One of the twenty twenty one season. Jeffrey travis hattian woo so they go running back in the first round that you go first round running back I won't be happy with that. But i think it's a possibility. I think that's the likely interesting. What are your thoughts. Honestly i think with what they have in james conner. I don't like it personally. But knowing the steelers. I think they're gonna stick with it. Bring back connor. You'll that that was going to be the name. I threw out there. 'cause i did read the article today and the reason is from everything i'm hearing. There's no market on conner out all like no one's putting goals in and then on the flip side of that the steelers don't have money to sign someone and their holes are so large to take running back in the first round would physically hurt my soul. It just isn't valuable position. May i just. I just wouldn't. I couldn't feel that so to me. looking at. who else is on the market. Do you go with an old guy. Because he's cheap like adrian peterson's not a running back number one if you signed him. That means benny snell. You're running back. One so i i hate to agree when when when it's a three person Three person to roundtable here. But i i think james conner still might pick as much as it might paint some people here. I think that might be the guy. If there's anybody else. I think it's Jalen samuels. I really do who that would be interesting because he fell out of favor to me in all honesty. This kind of it's keeping what you already have. You're not having spend money in. You're not having to go and take high draft capital in all honesty. I don't like it. 'cause i'm sorry. Everybody we have as a running back is strache whites. Say i could see him going. I zi samuels in the right situation. Ending up being valuable running back and matt canada's offense after what he basically got drafted based on what he did as a wingback impact canada's offense and he's still that's still his best usage that is like he is a guy that belongs in the nfl that no longer exists. He should be in a wingback offense. He's dude and he's going to get a chance he's going to get a chance to try and revitalize that and do it again with matt candidate so i can see a situation where by the end of the season people were like. Whoa jalen samuels. We thought he was terrible. Years as a feature running back lining up in the backfield running the bulk he's terrible recapture what he had in college as a wingback coming out as tight end. Let's not forget that. That was i think people were surprised when they said running back when they're making that pick onstage. Yeah that was absolutely insane. They listed him as a tight end because they don't know what h. Back and a wingback is list those positions but he never lined up in line. Ever he was always behind the line as either a wingback or an h. Back but they listed him as a tight end because they don't cause the nfl doesn't list wing back. H back as a position anymore. There you go now. The the other question i want to get to and i'm going to start with call on this one because jeffrey kahn answered it in a kind of try to prod him to get to get another name out there but as we sit here right now if the steelers were on the clock. Who's the most likely pick at number twenty four collin. Who who would you be. Drafting that That first round pick to to the peninsula. I hate to take it from somebody that saw earlier. But it's the I can't remember his name offhand right now. But it's the alignment out of oklahoma state technical. Yes jenkins and interest me in all honesty. Like i said jeffrey i would love if they went defense. But i feel like our offense of line has been so depleted here recently..

How how do you make money. I just well the more. I i don't know how like anything ever gets. Monetize goes to sure shit. We haven't done it. Maybe people just like asked her to. Yeah i don't know who's when they get the views and they get like revenue and stuff from my. So i honestly don't know and i still need to know guys more and have explained more than i could have ever followed. I am in awe all that for truly just like bullshit. It's not real. It's not real so also people have had rumors for years. That cam and van jan. Yes this has been ever. Since her like law law school and sort of like a path really kind of firmed up her mentor with cut fifty right the name of the company. The group is cut fifty and that is his company. Yes said she works with so they're like very close and in constant contact for her work now. Some of the chatter was that kim and van jones met at the white house and then he divorced his wife and they've been seeing each other. It doesn't lineup. Van jones did file for divorce in the same month. That kim and he were at the white house about alice maria johnson. But i don't know which one came first like he's he had never met her and then he met her and also either right before or right after he did file for divorce. Which didn't finalize for a year. But it doesn't really seem like you meet. Kim kardashian impersonal. Once you like by honey isn't a woman alive. Maybe could it would not like. Oh boy the penises out of this good van impression. I do just like them. But yeah i've heard this van one for a while. It doesn't sloth. I it doesn't it doesn't say like it people do ship them. Yes that is. He's deeply likeable. And especially when you contrast him with a in the last as connie stock has fallen. Vengeance has become such a figure in terms of leg really articulating a lot of the like horrors and injustice that we've been seeing and so there is something about lake this idea. I think even if it's a fairy tale of like kim and her social justice journey and meeting you know pairing with this other person that clearly. They have a lot in common. The very nice about the and wouldn't it be lovely. If i don't know a respectable person. Respect it you and not as like a paper doll like dress up and yeah and then body. Shame once you've helped her like build all the self esteem in the world. Also you know the terrible thing about all this kanye and kim like kind of dissolution of their marriages. She's never been a better person now. he doesn't like her as she's making herself in her world better. I know that's sad. I will say that. I'm very sad for the end of an era. I'm very sad for their. You wish the best to wish them the best like divorces very just like batty. All-talk really really really fast. And i really really been best. It's sad it's really sad. Divorces sad but at the same time like in my heart of hearts..
"jeffrey kahn" Discussed on Jewish History Matters
"The sense that there's a whole school of thanking really for the last twenty five years that comes very much for modernisation thing in the middle east which says that. Actually it's islam. Islamic law that kind of held back the development of these societies whether it be because of the prohibition on interest so this is like a problem in terms of development in finance or because of the constraints stomach law. I mean there are all kinds of argument has been made for many different difference is legal economic environmental if you look at the medieval stomach at world from the point of view where i sit looking to the documents and understanding that there was crecy. Both legal and governmental processes were consistent and predictable and not arbitrary. It begins to look much more like what historians argued about europe right which is that. There's a kind of inexorable pushed from an increasingly documented society in the middle ages to you know the glorious efflorescence of democracy and ultimately like maternity. You can make contentious arguments. Anyway you want to. But that doesn't actually help you understand what's learned society itself. I was really struck by your discussion a little bit earlier about the tax documents right and this is a really rich description of thinking about well. What are these documents. Actually that are sitting there in the nevada. And so maybe. Do you wanna take a moment to talk about the kinds of documents. The kinds of sources we find in this lost archive to use your term. I know that you focused particularly on decrees in the book but maybe want to explain a bit more. What is that we find in the cargo that makes it such a rich archive of the fatimid. It's important to understand that you know i worked on a tiny tiny percentage of what's in the guineas so the grand total of what's against and now People are giving them it about four hundred thousand pages or fragments of pages of that. The vast majority is literary text written for posterity texts written in long form so not just poetry and bilateral but also scientific works medical works. Chronicles philosophy and oliver bennett glitter. So all of this is considered to be to literary texts the other ten percents are roughly forty thousand are documents of the documents. The vast majority hebrew script in later languages so documents can be written in judeo arabic which arabic and hebrew characters can be written in some combination of hebrew and gerardi which is often the case for legal documents. Letters are mostly in our bec- but sometimes people wanna sound fancy and highfalutin and they'll write in hebrew aramaic by now was really just a kind of technical language of of jewish law and rabbinic literature. This is the case you know after the century and then in the later period okay so chronology mrs crucial. The vast majority of what we know from the guineas at now. It's too on the period between about nine fifty and twelve fifty when the particular neighborhood infra stop where the synagogue is was. The main locus of the jewish community of medieval cairo and then gradually as the whole population moved northwards away from new get fewer and fewer deposits mckinney's until the late fifteenth century. Which point exiles from iberia. This antics politicians moved to egypt in droves and now suddenly in the sixteenth century lots of latino documents which is incredibly. Cool eventually get ottoman turkish. There's all kinds of languages even the earliest known yiddish. Fragment which is from the thirteenth century was fran in guinea's not in europe so that's the kind of bigger picture. The arabic script texts in the ginza is like a whole separate question that you nobody's really gone to the bottom of this. Jeffrey kahn in cambridge. Who's one of the great pioneers in. The guineas are estimated in early article. Nineteen eighty s that About five percent of the arabic script. And maybe it's more maybe it's less but even if you just percent it's kind of rough and ready figure that's twenty thousand documents right there so of that. Theoretical twenty thousand. I was only looking at the documents that had been produced by the state or by state officials lower officials higher officials as a matter of like something in connection with the state. Why were they begin. Isa i mean you know. I can tell you in six hundred and three or four pages or less but just the long and short of it is They got discarding recycled. I got into this rocket. Because the most i would take charismatic. Kind of arabic script related document having or petitions and petitions are wonderful because petitions are like you know. They're they're many stories often. They're people who are desperate or at least petition. Scribe is framing their story in a very dramatic way. You're on the brink of starvation. My wife and children. Are you know naked starving. And unprotected i mean there's all kinds of rhetoric thickets used to kind of heighten the urgency of the petitions. But in fact they're fascinating if you kind of say okay. The degree of desperation will never really be able to determine but even without that kind of desperate nece and drama their normal ordinary people who are asking the state to do things for them on a very personal basis. Kind of as an exception like because you are so generous because we would never allow this kind of injustice to exist in your glorious reign. I am asking you to do this. Right of those petitions. Many are complaints about the misdeeds of mid-level bureaucrats like the local governor's stole seventy bags of grain. That i was trying to transport from one place to another. Can you please get them back for me. Basically going above the heads of local officials to seek justice. The loss archive is an introduction. To the book about petitions. I ended up hiving off from the loss of and is gonna you know in shallow. Be a separate book of its own. That's what i'm trying to write right now. And the reason that i felt like i had to take another step back and say okay. Let me introduce petitions. Broadway's is that the petitions had been for longtime understood to be the only kind of optimised state document that we had what i came to realize in digging through the arabic's protects of the news. Is that actually. There are many different jars of state document that got preserving either. So there are decrees of many types. There decrees that were given to petitioners. Which is people knew that some decrees had survived have been given pretensioners. But then they're also decrees that nothing to do with petitions decrees that the central government in cairo sent out to local officials in the territory on decrees that got sent out for public announcement and recitation. There were reports that government officials wrote on to their superiors their equals elsewhere in territory. There were fiscal documents of all kinds of documents are fascinating because we don't really understand them. Yeah i mean. I talked about these tax receipts. I have a student on daly. Who finished in in november and he wrote his dissertation on on taxation under the mid's and we read every week. Read these these tax documents together. And it's not even clear whether all of them are tax documents. Now they have something to do with land tenure with extraction of resources. But who's extracting what from whom it's not so clear. There are fiscal accounts where you can see the government spending like piles and piles of gold on what we don't know because we haven't read through all these the really hard to read their written in a kind of fiscal shorthand that nobody has one hundred percent decipher yet but we can generally determine the amount of money that are on these accounts. And they're like two hundred thousand dinars. Which is like you know. It's like today's equivalent to be like twenty billion dollars or something like that so there's quite a bit to be learned from these. I think what. I did was to try to establish a kind of rough and ready tiga logical scheme and a sketch of the whole system as it was turning out these documents and.

Us contact tracing apps are built by state governments but underpinned by a bluetooth based exposure notification protocol released in may by google and apple and a rare joint venture smartphones running apps using the google apple technology can exchange randomly generated identification numbers with other nearby devices the apps than alert users if someone they've been in contact with later inputs a positive covid nineteen tests so they can take appropriate measures like getting tested. The idea was to augment not replace traditional contact tracing a manual process in which human investigators interview infected individuals. Then contact others with whom they recently spent time. While many states have been ramping up their contact tracing programs many of these efforts have been overwhelmed by the sheer amount of spread in recent weeks but five months after the google apple project launched apps using their protocol are available to the general public in only ten states in washington. Dc even in states that have rolled out contact. Tracing apps adoption generally remains low. Why part of the problem. According to public health experts has been a lack of coordination by the federal government which could have for example created a national digital contact tracing solution and encouraged states to opt in absent direction or incentives from washington. Many states have chosen not to launch contact tracing apps at all even states that have launched contact. Tracing apps were initially wary of investing their limited resources and an unproven solution officials in new york for example told time they were interested in google. And apple's initial pitch as the pandemic battered the empire state this spring but i wanted to shore up their traditional contact tracing program. The state eventually launched an app in early october contact. Tracing apps have also been slowed by state health departments lack of tech expertise. According to public health officials and technologists from the perspective of an app developer that sat in those contracting hughes in places like new york and california states were utterly unequipped to start making procurement decisions on contact.

The story was reported by Ned Tomko in London for the Monitor? Survivors of the coronavirus should be immune. Scientists say. Some have proposed capitalizing on that immunity, but that could open an ethical quagmire. If covid nineteen behaves like other diseases. At least some portion of those who have fought it off should now have immunity against contracting it again, which means there should be hundreds of thousands if not millions of people who are to be capable of returning to normal life without putting themselves or others at risk. Medical researchers and tech companies propose taking advantage of that population by granting them immunity passports, which would allow them to bypass restrictions. But ethicists warn that granting special status to those who are immune opens up moral questions about obligations that might follow. I shouldn't have to stay in my home in socially distance and not go to my office. If I'm immune from infection, that doesn't make any sense. Says Jeffrey Kahn.

"The world opener sportsbook is gonna pay the price for that. When the professionals pound them on what side or the other because the line was wrong. If you wanna be safe as a book, you wait till there's about ten books, this opened up, you wait till it's been three or four five hours since it open, and you can feel pretty good the line has settled down, and then that's when the other books open, so eventually to end at the end of this little comment, is that the, the day of the game itself, let's say in the NFL is that line isn't really about what the odds maker said six days ago, that line is about the consensus, opinion of all the betters in the world. So my adage is I can beat oddsmakers if you force an one. Group to put up a hundred games. I'm gonna find five that they made a mistake on. But come Sunday when every million dollars syndicate has had a chance to bed in the game. The line is so much sharper, which is really saying it's more accurate. So me personally, if I if I'm an oddsmaker I. So I don't take liability early. I, I would is it from the point. Like I feel like I would never be the first one with the line, I would wait for west gate. MGM William Hill Caesar's, I'd wait for them all to put up their lines. I'd see where the money goes and see where the line falls. And then, and then make my line is. I mean is that frowned upon? Is that? The whole frowned upon like anything rock music poker. Wrestling, even professional wrestling. You have the purest. Right. Think about events man's a billionaire and you've got people saying, yeah. Georgia championship wrestling, nineteen eighty three was Gordon Soling was the real wrestling. And, and you know, to me, it's not about what the two hundred people that consider themselves the arbitor's of what's right and wrong in sports betting. I don't you know, they're gonna frown upon that probably. But the question is every minute that you wait. You're losing action. So the question is, could you are you going to be profitable, if you were the world opener if so you should open up first because you're gonna make money doing it? If you think you can be profitable opening up. Let's say in the second way. So each books, gotta decide, and it often varies in each sport. Right. So the west gate who in my opinion is probably a little overrated in many ways, they do do a very good job with golf, meaning there is ambitious as anyone with golf and also was Super Bowl props, the best. So on one way, I'm not a big fan of west gate on the other. You gotta give them they're do when it comes Super Bowl props, and golf, and you can go up and down the list of sports and there's gonna be different books at tend to open up. I super contest, you know, last year they had their five thousand dollar soup. For contests. And with two weeks to go we were tied for first place, Jay. So that's a that's a big payday. I mean what was six hundred and forty K and unfortunately we didn't it was winner. Take all we didn't win. But we ended up like sixty five percent on the season. So quite strong. Not terrible. So, yeah, I know you're a big football ter. Oh. I don't know what you guys are pointing this needs to be sad. You didn't understand sarcasm. I know. But I gotta say, professional batters, the kind of guys that don't work literally a straight job hit fifty five percent of the time a drunk baby flipping coins it's fifty percent. Literally, in twenty games at drunk, baby. Coins is expected to win ten games and St. fezzet. For example, our best NFL guy, the only guy pregamEcom he's a premium dot com. The only guy ever to win two Suber contests. He hits eleven out of twenty five percent. That's it, and anyone town you and obviously, you guys don't do that. Anyone telling you that they can hit sixty plus run the other way. Now. Now real quick caveat in a short period of time. Like we did during one NFL season you could hit sixty five percent e not easy, but you can do it, but over the long run, it's impossible. All right. So this one's for our listeners. I know your football guy, but it's like this time of year. What's your daily, what's your daily routine, do you look, do you get up? And you do look at Moby lines. You look at NBA lines, what would your daily for our gamblers if you're giving them advice this time of year? Do you have any? Well, let me talk about quickly, my routine, and then we can talk about how other batters can take advantage of this time of year. So. With we do have now a FOX radio show, five days a week. And on the national network Vegas, baby straight out of a kiss. And by the way, Jeffrey open by, you got something, you got your passionate about tax me, and you're on my steak. You still owe me a steak, it's over two and a half years old now. That's what I want more than anything from you. Get your butter Vegas. I know you don't like to leave Tennessee, right close Indianapolis. Well he wasn't. He wasn't Tennessee. Yeah. Oh, you moved. Okay. So, you know, at some point hit west of the Mississippi say, so, so what I tend to do is what do people want to talk about in here about because the reality is if I let's say started handicapping some niche baseball game that no one was interested in. And then I wasn't as well informed for the radio show, which is on two hundred stations. I wouldn't. Be doing service to my listener, so quite frankly, for me in the non NFL season. I'm pretty much betting guys I trust. So I've got a couple of guys at pre-game with a long history of winning a guy like fezzet and pretty much. He's put in the stuff for me. And I know the picks and I set off with them once a week now during football. I'm handicapping the card voraciously. So now if you're an NBA fan then than focus on the NBA if you're a baseball fan do that. But here's the trick. If you're betting more than one sport at a time and you're doing it with only your information it's almost impossible to win. You've got to be a specialist and if I could give any advice to let's say and it's sparring winner. Let's say someone has won yet long-term, but they want to badly, you pick one. One conference in college football literally pick the mountain west pick. The Pac twelve and only bet that conference and what happens is think about it for seven. You're listening to every post game show. You're reading the school papers, you got the beat writers on your Twitter feed, you're going to know more about the Pac twelve then they'll oddsmakers do 'cause they gotta do all the teams. So to me, whatever you, do if you wanna win specializing his key. I have a question for you for the for the common man. Your average better just out there your blow Joe, you're Joe blow. Jaffer. Yeah. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you is buying points for suckers. Here's the thing. Yes. Now there is a niece chancer, if you buy on or office seven for a dime, really has died now it's sevens worth about eleven cents. So it's one situation that you could say, oh, you're making a penny off it now, I, I will caveat it, though. If you're the type, who's gonna be let's say, for example, the buying on the six in the NFL now let's say by on his six as worth seven cents which I seven or eight cents. I think that's a fair assessment. You're paying a dime. So in a way, what you're asking me is should I pay ten cents for something worth seven cents now, obviously, the mathematical answer is no. But if you're the type if that game false, six that you're going to have massive anx. And it's going to cause you maybe to go on, till, then it would make sense the pay two cents at say of, of negative EV in order to prevent a catastrophe. So I usually you know, mathematically. No. But if you're that weak minded, and I say that with file, maybe you should do Jay, I got asked about win totals in the NFL real, quick, something like Pittsburgh Steelers. I took eighteen over. They took to eighteen touchdowns out of their offense. And he's now in Oakland when they come up with these team totals way early before the season kicks off what goes into that. Is it just about four or five players on the roster? Or I mean, hell they don't even know if some of these draft picks are going to make the team yet. Well, I think in general the draft only matters. If you have a team, who has a lot more picks like New England did this year because I think, historically, what we could say is that best you could maybe make three categories of front offices above average average and. Below average. But the difference between even them is pretty modest. Meaning take Big Ben away from Pittsburgh in in. I know they've drafted well to Castro's this impounded, that but how many games would Pittsburgh be winning with an average quarterback? Right. So, you know as much as we can exalt certain front offices. I think in general, these are all professionals, and I it's almost like target practice. If one team has seven bullets and the other team is fourteen and they're about the same shot. Well, I expect the fourteen shooter to have more booze is other than that, ignore the draft. I think, but, but would they do Jeffries they do account for all known information? So you're right. A player could get hurt could be a trade who knows what, but as those things happen, as information becomes available. Then the line changes now if you do, like Pittsburgh, and your Optima. Mystic. I got a bad. I like even better, I like Pittsburgh, plus two hundred two to one to win the division, because with that allows me to do is both be long or pro Pittsburgh, which I am I think this season and when I say, I think it is early, and then let's be fade. Two teams I don't like which is I think Cleveland's way overrated right now. And I think that Baltimore is gonna struggle because with Lamar Jackson a whole off season of the defense coordinator seem the limited abilities of him passing. I think you're gonna see a big drop off with the novelty offense of Baltimore and season. Number two, couldn't agree more RJ and we thank you so so much for your time. I would love to hear Gorms on your national national FOX show to two hundred stations pushing this podcast street, coming idea hot streak coming, RJ RJ. Listen, here's what we'll do when. Jeffrey kahn. We'll do is I'll have Geoffrey talked to my producer and make sure what he wants to save up to qualify probably. It's probably is he'll come on.

You know, straight outta Vegas has a pod, but we have the the dream preview which this week went two and a half hour breaking down the NBA. So on Twitter out our Jane Vegas, you can get all that stuff. Real quick for and let you go Golden State or the field. Who do you like from here on out?
