Are you ready for this. Two hundred thousand dollars for back pay which equals because they did the math ninety. Six dollars an hour to babysit her kid. All my gosh well surprise because there's big celebrities but what is it surprise. Anyone would wait until the bill was two hundred thousand start complaining. They didn't get paid. 'cause you missed one check with me. I'm coming after you for that money. I'm not waiting until it gets up to a quarter million dollars to say you forgot a few paychecks.

Kobe promised to take care of her for the rest of her life but when kobe pass. Vanessa kicked out of her home that kobe water. Anyway it's the terms of the settlement. Were not disclosed but the case is closed. We're never going to find out especially because it's mother daughter. I doubt that will ever find out what happens if i had to guess. She probably paid her a little bit just to be like buy a house. Shut up okay. So let's talk about him for half a second right because he did eighty second listening party for the album. Donde aaron kim kardashian and the kids are proving how much that they still support gonyea which by the way. This is a clip of donde before all audio just gets absolutely bad. So what i'm actually going to do for you. Here is just place in jesus walks. Why because it's my favorite county dirtiest. How do you do in eighty second listening party. It takes me longer to park my car than it would actually be at the listening party. Well what he did during this listening party was very interesting because he did some reedit of some songs that we've heard a few teased clips from but then he also played this weird. What role of turning into a super villain onstage. While this went down he was wearing a mask and all black combat here and working out in the middle of the stage just like lifting weights doing pushups through itself. You would be doing if nobody was there doing it on stage. Yeah i believe healthy people call it getting their swollen. But i haven't been to a jiminy ear so i couldn't tell you if that's the current terminology or not What's crazy to me is thirty. Five thousand people still showed up for the second listening party and that was it. Oh yeah and apparently the new release date for this album is supposed to be today. But don't hold your breath because like all things west. It's not going to be released time a time. Line save even starting the thing last night at the stadium. Tickets were nine pm sharp. Nine pm he arrived at ten thirty to the stage and did the eighty second. It's like i'd be so pissed. If i wasted a night to go sit there and lying. Okay heard another half. A song didn't tell you about the time. I saw kanye west. Live no okay. I've seen him a bunch of times in. You is incredible but the the start time for the show was six fifteen. And i don't think the doors opened until nine thirty. Yeah like we were standing outside. And cleveland and the rain for three hours super late to and like the frustrating part is like you said it is a good show but i don't wanna factor in a twelve.

"Right. It's a player back with you on 7 20 WGN. So when you talk about Chicago decades after Prohibition, we still talk about the Gangsters of our past. And you know every time The Sopranos Goodfellas the Godfather is on cable. Will stop and watch it. I believe it will be remote drop, and I will watch it. But no matter where they are in the film incorporating the Gangsters, the mob into stories is always a thrilling ride. And there's a place up in Lake Geneva, called the French country and has been up there for a long time has a storied history, but it's a beautiful place today for yourself. Take the family up there on there's a new restaurant there, called the Savoy, which is on Lake Geneva are like Homo in Lake Geneva's well, Eric Morehead from the French country in John. Strong from Savoy are joining us tonight, Gentlemen, welcome him. World to be here. Thanks for having me, Dave. Yes, John. Nice to have you as well. Let me get John. John. There you go, John. How you doing, buddy? I'm doing great. How are you, dear boy? I'm great this same here, you know, so I'm gonna start off with the French country in a little bit, because this is where that history begins one of your main buildings, and that's kind of separate from the gangster stories. The main building the main house there. As another tie to Chicago during the century of progress. Yes, That's right. Thank you for pointing that out. We I like to say we have a two part history, one that started in the 18 eighties in Chicago. Our main building was the Danish Expo house. For the 18 93 Chicago World's fair, The Columbia Exposition, and it was actually there was a number of houses in Denmark that were being built, trying to win their nation's bid to be represented in Chicago. And this was the one that wanted. They tore it down, shifted across Atlantic built it up in Chicago, and that's where it lived for the 1st 30 years of its life. And 100 years ago. This year, it's actually 100 Year anniversary of the Lake Coma Hotel, which is what it was called once they moved it from the Chicago World fairground site to its current location at South southern side of Lake Carmel in Lake Geneva. Piece by piece, the floors. The wood is beautiful in there, but I mean, they literally brought this piece by piece on a train. That used to run right by the end and rebuilt this whole structure. I mean, again, a century old. It's pretty cool. Yeah. And that train track you talk about? It wasn't even a passenger train. It was originally a logging train. Uh, the whole reason that the tracks went through there to begin with was to bring would tow rebuild parts of Chicago after they're the great fire. But they made a special stop just to drop off all the stuff to build, rebuild the Danish Expo house and once and that's good, okay. Andre, where it is now was originally just on one flat foundation. But then, in their late twenties, the the John Dillinger gang was using the place as a hideout and hang out and at the time Jack Moran bugs Moran's old son. Was the innkeeper, and they built a speakeasy and casino area just beneath the hotel that the Iran throughout the twenties and thirties. That's underneath the historic 18 93 Danish Expo. That's great, That's great. And so baby face. Nelson stayed there, too. Wasn't that the last place that is not where he stayed before he got shot up in a cornfield in Wisconsin. That was. I think he was headed out to somewhere in Iowa. Forgive me for forgetting off the top of my head. Waterloo, Iowa is I think where that all finished off. And when the feds They love to stay here and with Scotland because for a while they didn't have state was warrants. So Wisconsin was a little paradise for him. But once the feds got involved in, they followed them up to little bohemian, northern Wisconsin and then they started falling on here in Lake Geneva. Came down the train tracks. So they got a 10 to 15 minute warning and head start because there's no way the feds could make a quiet approach. Driving down train track, right? Yeah, absolutely. And the place has a storied history of Of ownership as well. As you said, you know, I knew when the French country and was purchased back in the eighties, you know, the previous owner said. It looked like the place was falling down drunk and you know he kind of rebuilt. It added some buildings and so forth, but At this point in the last couple years. You know this structure that has been around forever, It is is beautiful as ever. I mean, you guys have really put a lot of love into these buildings to make it what it is today. Absolutely. And not just because John, our ownership is on the other line. I mean, this whole heartedly. We have phenomenal ownership. They are locals, the places near and dear their heart, and that's what shows Makes me proud to work for him. And when you see that you can put the money that you work so hard to learn, and to put back into the place, and it's phenomenal. Um, one of the things that we're working on. Particularly is the Dillinger sweet. The room that didn't do in your state and In the historic building. It was our previous owner, the one that brought it to its current, You know, glory. It was his own personal room. So unless you were is friend or family, you hardly even knew the coolest room on the property was there? Yes, absolutely. And so is 33 rooms. Every room has a a lake views here on Lake Cuomo, which is really beautiful because you're not in the hustle and bustle of downtown. You're really in a It's kind of buried. It's a buried treasure kind of sitting out. On the lake. It's just peaceful, slim or quieter and again. It's like Cuomo in in Lake Geneva and firm or on rooms and stuff in the history. You got a French country in dot com, and there's a restaurant that's there to called Savoy. John, you are Kind of spearheading that talk to talk to us a little bit about about the restaurant and some of your crack craft cocktails and your appetite, appetizers and all that other great stuff. Sure, Happy to day. The restaurant is continuing to be a work in progress We opened last year in July, really during the height of the pandemic. And we have Ah, small focus menu right now, most of our dishes or new American, which includes really culturally dishes from Europe and South America and Mexico. Really all over the world and our chef Christian Hernandez really has a wonderful palate. He changes up the menu with a good deal of regularity. We do have craft cocktails. Those also rotate with the seasons. And we're very proud of some of those. Eric talked a little bit about the history of the end, and it's kind of interesting. One of those things that we did is we've restored the Capitol bar in the Savoy Lounge. And it's the original buyer that muscle from Chicago. I sat and drank at one of those things that we did, though the update the restaurant is we have Ah, wall of windows across the back of the bar now and so. On rainy nights like tonight, you could look out over Lake Cuomo and see a wide swaths of the lake. And then it also opens up. So we have a bar on the other side. So when,.

"Well, Drew and John Nice to be with you guys again as well. And, uh, yeah, I've done this for quite a while. In fact, that was just telling your producer when I called in. I have actually covered 22 different Super bowls as a sports writer with the Washington Post Baltimore Sun and then I worked with CBS radio for many, many years and I was telling him, I said, I remember when Joe Nemeth and the Jets delivered on a promise to beat the Baltimore Colts. I was a young man in those days. And that was a stunning game. What I saw what I saw yesterday. I'm still trying to digest. I mean, after you go through as you all were mentioned a little bit ago. You beat Breeze You beat Rogers. You beat my homes. And you know, it was a pound down 31 to 9. And I know the fans in your area are gonna want to get a hold of what I'm about to talk about, because this was history. You had to navigate through it Unbelievable Season with the with the covert 19 to begin with and lack of fans of games and to go ahead and just get to the Super Bowl. Then to go ahead and do it in the fashion that was done. Rawlings is making like you said 5000 of these full size footballs to raise money for the local maker. We foundation here just $99 and they come with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity. And I'm on one. I'll give that a toll free number and website because I think this will be a cell up very, very quick. But before I do that, I want to point out what you're going to get on various panels off the football. Everything is in Boston that which is really kind of cool because it'll keep it pristine for years to come. It's not gonna fade because of the sun. Stop, Tad pointed on. Duh. It is gorgeous looking on the top panel. We've got the Tampa Bay Bucks franchise history and Campion ship history. So their previous Super Bowl they won back in 2000 to his featured there. The second panel is cool because it kind of recaps the entire 2020 season with the opponent scores and dates so you'll see exactly have a buck's got. Through the playoffs got through the season wonder last eight games and the years from now you'll be able just to look at that panel and be able to talk about it. And then on the last panel is the is the official Super Bowl 55 logo, the championship logo that data the game that big 31 the nine score against Kansas City. Right below. That is a real sweet spot. It'll say, See Super Bowl champions right there. So you get all that on this special football on Lee five thousands ever going to be made. There's two ways you could order these for $99 each the toll free number and I wouldn't I wouldn't wait too long, because these things they're going to go. It's 1 803 452868.

This'll Christmas type of America so people could share on Leigh Johnson. Drive somebody that crazy yet ready to jingle some bells. That is a fake movie trailer about die hard, and they made it into a Christmas movie trailer. Because Cam what every year what we hear diehards a Christmas movie? No, it's not. Yes, it is. No, it's not back and forth. Is it a Christmas movie camp? Yes, it is. It is a Christmas movie. No, it is not because Christmas movies have been Crosby as Father Flanagan in them. That's why the Bells of ST Mary's is a Christmas movie, or angels and biggie putting is definitely necessary. I don't know what figure putting is, but the song says, we need it. And there's none of that in die hard they might have had figured putting that like the buffet as a cocktail party at the Christmas Party. But listen, John McTiernan, who directed Diehard says officially, Yes, it is a Christmas movie. But don't get too excited because he says that it is an anti capitalism. Christmas moving. So, um, yeah, barely census. I know. He said the video last week that it is definitely a Christmas movie. But he said that originally, the script featured left wing terrorists who were brought to heel by the stern face of authority. And he said, no way he said I wasn't gonna I was gonna do the movie that way. So he had it changed so that it was these, uh, you know evil capitalists who were coming in and trying to, you know, Destroy you. Right? The the Nakatomi Plaza s. Oh, I've got to call it I've got I'm still gonna call it a Christmas movie. But it's not an anti capitalism Christmas movie because it made too much money to be an anti capitalist Christmas movie. Exactly. This dude's living high on the hog off that movie. Exactly, Mrs. Yeah, well, I think he had to put that political message in there just or say that it was a Christmas movie just so he could get the political part of his message out.

"John. Nice to be here. Markets are not as hot today, but it looks like we're still going to finish the month on a high, aren't we? We are. November has been the most remarkable month for the stock market in 33 years, which is really saying something. But even after we've come back from that crazy covert, we've done well. The Dow for the year year to date is up over 5%, the S and P 500 is up 14.5%. And get this. The NASDAQ is up 40% since January. Obviously January. That was all pre Covad so you can kind of draw a line over that valley then that we hit in March and April, huh? That's right. I mean, we came back from that If we had just come back to where we were from that kind of a record drop, that would have been amazing to do it in this short A period of time is another level of amazing, and now we've actually gone up beyond that. And for the NASDAQ to be up 40% is really something now. Of course, A lot of that growth at NASDAQ could do this. The biggest of the 100, you know. The one of the top 100 companies, but particularly things like Amazon and Google and Microsoft. Of those companies Facebook They're all the ones powering that driving the NASDAQ. But I'm I think that's an interesting way to think about that. Because the president likes to tell the fact that the market has done so well. But often his benchmark is March April May And yet now you don't need that You could go January pre pandemic and 40% up on the NASDAQ. Your point is not lost on us that some of that is powered by the pandemic itself. But look at the Dow and the S and P up 15. 14.5% So say what you want about the pandemic or the president? This has been a a good year for the markets. He has been, and I think it's one of the reasons you know why people feel so good about how they're doing. I've seen a number of studies, including the consumer Credit confidence Survey from Equifax. There's others from Gallup. All of which have been asking consumers how they feel about their money. And about 60% of people feel terrific, like they're in a better place than they were four years ago and the stock market and how well it's doing combined with How well your house is doing here. The appreciation that we've been seeing nationwide and even here in Chicago has a lot to do with that. All good news. If you have equities if you have retirement fund if you have a house, we're still waiting for the employment numbers to turn Although they were worse a month ago, so we've even Sort of got that going for us, Don't we? We do accept that the we're seeing the unemployment numbers rise a little bit more, which is unfortunate, right? So we saw 1.1 million initial claims for jobless benefits filed last week. That was 55,000 more than the week before up another 40,000 from the week before that. About 12. Million people are still unemployed and about to lose their benefits at the end of December, and those are big challenges for Biden.

"Having us goes against the most basic principles of our democracy. It takes away the right of every American citizen to cast their vote to choose our leaders was Sean, the reporter for The Wall Street Journal. For joining us, John Nice to be here. I need to talk about some of the lawsuits that are going to be going around. Obviously, we're still waiting for everybody to call the presidential elections of it's a little too close to call. It seemed that Joe Biden has one in Wisconsin. But the Trump campaign said that they want tohave a recount. Their The Trump campaign also said they're planning to halt vote counting in Michigan. They said they were denied access to view openings of ballots. And we know there's already some lawsuits in Pennsylvania. There might be a couple other ones from the Trump campaign. But Sean tell us about these lawsuits and specifically Pennsylvania. What we know it's going on there. There's been a few lawsuits that have held hearings today. 1 may still actually be underway and Harrisburg that that is brought by a Pennsylvania representative. And they're trying to basically get a judge to block counties from allowing voters. Tio have provisional ballot if their mail in ballot was defective, or, you know wrong or rejected in somewhere. That hearing is happening now in Harrisburg, and then in the morning in Philadelphia, there was a separate lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania Republicans essentially to block officials in Montgomery County. So the county officials basically they manually review ballots that they received before Election Day. And if there's anything defective about them like there's no signature on the outside envelope or the invite awful of secrecy envelope is missing, which they could actually tell without opening the envelope, sometimes, like the scanning machine could tell that the ballot is underweight or they See the ballots through the envelope, So they know the secrecy envelope is missing, so they will try to notify voters before Election Day so they can come in and fix that mistake. So essentially, the plaintiffs. The Pennsylvania Republicans, in this case are trying to get those votes disqualified. And on the defendant's side. It's the Democratic National Committee. They've got lawyers help the county officials and they're saying that essentially that this is just Pat Employees franchise voters that nothing in the election code for this officials from contacting voters about ballots before election Day to fix problems and that voters aren't allowed to actually change the balance just to come in. And because you're the ballot fix whatever problem that there is, and that The county officials have been doing this for years and years and years, and both the Republican and Democratic parties know that this has been going on in Pennsylvania. In particular, We already kind of expected that the vote count would take a long time state officials that they wouldn't really complete everything until Friday. They have special rules there. That a mail in ballot is postmarked by the day. They have all the way until Friday to actually get in. So they could be counted and part of this other thing that you were saying, you know, to cure those ballots. You know they have all the way until Friday to do that. So obviously there's a lot of contention around that tell us a little bit about how many mail in ballots we're looking at, because we know this time around. Obviously, mail in balloting was just huge across the country, but in Pennsylvania specifically to I mean his millions. I think there's like a million votes still yet to be counted, But the numbers were just huge. Right and even actually see sort of in terms of the breakdown of the Biden voter and Trump voters so far for in person votes for Biden. I think it's something about a little over 57% of the votes for bite and have been in person both and the rest have been mail in ballots and then for Trump. It's been over 90% in person. Voting versus you know, little under 10% for mail in ballots, so there's a huge disparity and You know which voters are mailing in ballot in which voters are standing in line or stand in line on Tuesday or beforehand. Toe vote in person. So interesting thing is for The case of the Montgomery County and the mail in ballots it only a place to 93 ballots. So they found about 2700 defective or possibly defective ballots, but only 93 ballots. Were the voter was notified that something was potentially wrong with her ballot and they actually came in and fixed it so that only 93 ballots and there was a funny moment when the chief clerk of the county said, You know it's 93 ballots we have. It's sequestered and he said, We have it in a locked cabinet in a locked room under 24 hour surveillance, and I was just kind of surreal moment. You know, at the courthouse when he said that, But the more important thing is that I think, depending on if the judge sides with the plaintiffs, it could set a precedent for other counties in post people. They enhancers, Rays similar challenges against mail in ballots and allowing voters to come in and like you're the ballot, right, maybe challenges to disqualify those ballots. And then you know, in a broader level, you mentioned other legal challenges being brought around the country back that also factor in definitely, I think. Here in Pennsylvania. Other counties are watching what happens in Montgomery County. Sean Lee, reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you.

Like I hope you consider a good question about op topsy reports. No. Are you Able to gain access to any autopsy reports. I know Some of it's a privacy issue. But as doctors you able to learn anything from What's being put out there. Through the medical community says from what we've learned from how you know from the biology to the chemical aspect to the how it really run of the whole body through autopsies that we learn anything more about. How it works in the body, ma'am. It's a great question, and I would say that in general, most of these folks are not having autopsies were seeing when we see the people who died from complications of covert itself, which is largely either from pneumonia. The most common things are from overwhelming pneumonia or the long filling up with fluid and having an inflammatory response in the lungs. We're saying that or we're seeing the other devastating consequences, which is the development of multiple blood clots in different areas of the body in different organs and a different blood vessels in the extremities. These are things that we see not just with covert 19 at the very well documented on sort of side effect, bad side effects of a number of different infections, both bacterial infections and viral infections. And it's also a side effective sometimes of severe trauma. So we're seeing these same syndromes happened, whether it's covert 19 or other overwhelming what we call sepsis infection from whatever cause bacterial or viral. Most of these folks aren't having autopsies. But we could tell an awful lot just from looking at things like chest X rays as well. A cat scan of the body that were happened that were done when people were in the I C u prior to their dying, so it's It's not that we don't understand really how this virus is impacting people, and that's why we know things like that. Steroids play a significant role because they come down that inflammatory response. We know that things like hydroxy quarrel when work because we know that think, impact this virus and renders it harmless and stops it from replicating so we haven't needed to rely on autopsies as much as you might think. If pneumonia is an issue associated with Covad 19 is that does that mean that people should go out and get the pneumonia vaccine? No, it's a great question. They're very pneumonia vaccine is for bacterial pneumonia that impact primarily older people are folks again. We have those underlying health conditions, primarily Azman other lung disease that might be a set up to get a bacterial pneumonia. Unfortunately, it won't do much to prevent the long impact from something like Cove in 19, which really is an issue again. That's related to The inflammatory response and the flooding of fluid into the lung development of fibrous tissue and inability to get oxygen because you're trying to breathe through a wet sponge. Unfortunately, the lungs become like a big stopping. What Soaked sponge and air oxygen cannot transmit well across those wet.

He vote him falling through a very big high everyday but. I won't go into that anyway in in watching this movie, which is so beautifully done to me. It's just Marchan as director and putting what this life is in not at all stodgy bio kick manner. No, it's great and I'm looking at you and I'm thinking of your journey first movie bond girl. End of the day, I can remember you in that saying this line probably going to get this. Wrong but it was I know all about you 007. Sex for, dinner. Death for breakfast CEST.

Want to go to you and and. Put a fine point on the question. What would you do? And what do you think the Republican Party needs to do? To address the issues of some African Americans who believe that there is disparity between the way. Blacks are treated by the police department versus whites. How would how would you just go in and try to resolve that? I think it's important to enact. The police reforms did Tim Scott took the lead on the Senate. And got it got stopped in the house. I think there are reforms that are needed. They can address somebody's concerns I. For example, the idea of licensing of the police is not an a new idea, and it's not a Democrat idea actually came up eleven years ago in the Illinois legislature by Senator Tim Business Look, who had hope Malir and law enforcement, including the League County Sheriff. He wanted to see to it that those bad actors in there's very few of them I believe within. Within the police community with those bad actors you know should not be able to go from apartment to our mentor state to state with a bad record. That's something that Tim Scott wants to see in s something that I think people of both parties can embrace. David David. macioce are Democrat. Pick up on that. And where do we begin addressing just that part of the race issue in the country, the the the the the unfair treatment of blacks according to blacks in this country. We, look the police issue. A police go into neighborhoods and social scenarios as they currently exist. So when there's a killing or an assault, it's a flash point, but we tend not to look at the smoldering injustices..

Yeah I was curious about that. I'm not really sure what this character Bah mean yeah `isolation it's sort of an odd choice because they're all very often used together. I don't tend to think about what that character means. Yeah that's one of the tricky things about Chinese words. Is that an English report letters together to make a word but in Chinese characters maybe one character is a word by itself maybe two characters together as a word in rare air circumstances three or more could be thought of as one word But the if you put your characters together to make a word these characters also have meanings aside from that that word and sometimes they bring those meanings to that word and sometimes not so much and so this combination name bar. I'm also confused is doing here. Yeah Yeah No. That's a great point and I think that also highlights the culture difference between the Western and Eastern culture. which is that you know? The Chinese culture is more collectivistic so it's more contextual. So when we when we use certain characters or we're talking about certain things that we always put it in context if you read Chinese Poland's they're always like English points. You're you're talking about or literature. You're talking about very specific specific scenarios. Give a very clear picture picture of what it looks like. You know what it feels like for Chinese. We always talk about the more vague and general feeling like like say if I want to talk about how I miss my family. I don't talk about my family I talk about the moon died. I can see from the room window of my room back home or talk about the you know the maybe mountains. The rivers flowing by were very indirect. We're very contextual. So when it comes to language you also had that we also have the habit of putting everything in context so for Chinese learners. It's it's very very challenging. Speaking of which we talked about for about two or three minutes we still haven't said what does it say. Somebody is by so Nimba would be. It would be kind of like somebody.

They're very like we use them in daily conversation right so so when you say somebody is very noon by. There's very there is a slight tone of complaint someone in badge. Why are you so neat? So it's Kinda you're complaining that you know you've been going back and forth about your decision for the past two hours and still no decision and I get I get a little impatient and I say why are you so you can buy. I think Nina is really the key here. Name means to twist or so. This person has their ideas are always twisting and turning earning. They can't choose one of yes. So how would you use that innocent. So you just said Need Jerry. Deming ballots to a simpler one. Could you do say for example. He's very neat path for Nick. Yeah you could say that. Basically this person is very new bond so but we when we say that there's always a very tiny negative negatively attached to it. Like you know we. We don't say somebody new by in a positive way always jiggling hunting Liebau meaning that you know better not taught him because he will waste like two or three hours of your time is still in no position so jigger hunting. Yeah Jaguar a good means this one gen person. Hon Is Very Nimba indecisive. Vacillating tillerson hunting. Yeah this person is very indecisive. Yeah and where we use that word. We're usually referring to the general propensity general personality. You Know Oh not like on specific things you could still use on specific issues like I know you know somebody who has hitting if she should break up with the boyfriend. You could say you take your shirt and Belgium Newton bond. You shouldn't be to assure me beyond Germany bar usually jirga shar chart this thing Yanni. Well you shouldn't be joining bonds so vacillates. Yeah but but I think the more natural the more common uses. I is to describe the person's personality in general like this person is very neat budget condition. Go and this person's personality is he's very nearby so I couldn't say I feel Nimba about this. No I am yeah. inning buys as a person. Yeah okay so that's assuming vacillating person the next one is. I find quite poetic. Hold on Hoda. What is what is hold allowing is definitely a very very positive expression I think in daily use? It's kind of like cool. Yeah like that's not cool. J hold on these doable Hoda really like the way you were doing this. Very cool or not very hold on. Oh the cool. Not as in like I wear great. No I know how to surf. Not that Kinda cool. But that's not acceptable. Yeah Yeah exactly. What sense did you say against Josiah? Poder Nujoma tour hold out yet. So Ne- U. Joma like this saw. Do or hold on or act. Yeah hold out not virtuous yeah You in this way act not virtuous yes Jomo holder. Yeah so we like. We always used to describe somebody's behavior. Your decision is not. Hold your choices. Not so it's different from you back. NEOM buys always for personality but hold always often to describe specific perfect behaviors right now but you can also say somebody is this person's very hold on. You could say that but I think most most of the time we we talk about a specific behaviors. All Right Yeah Nice. Yeah so you know not cool Baroda appropriate. Yeah hold on. Yeah so let's get onto the next one. The next one is one of those sixty words that uses words. You already know. In a different way and lol Hollarin' these three characters is literally lull means. Old Hall is good. Antigen is person yes allow and should be an old good person but what does it really all as you can guess from the literal. Meaning you know. It sounds kind of Nice old good person right but I think gets the same age in English. If you think about somebody who's a good guy good old guy who's a good old fellow then he's probably not very very opinionated. He's probably not very like he probably wouldn't stand up for himself and that's basically Chinese meaning. If you say somebody is allow in. Then it's it's it's like somebody who's kind generous and very given but at the same time. He's kind of like a pushover. It's easy for people to take advantage of him. Yeah so this word. It comes out very often when you're describing. I think especially in families because you would hear the wife complaining to the husband. Oh why are you always allow. You know you're our family's poor you're always giving money to your sister or your brother or your parents. Whoever asks you for money give it? Because you're allow hotel. Yes exactly. Yeah so you're doing good things for other people but often at the cost of your yourself or even your own family. So we use that word to describe that kind of kind of behavior view. I'm definitely allow all the time I. Yeah Yeah and also if you're allowed in the Yubari complain like you don't complain Around we're always kind of quiet. You're just doing this. This is actually very Typical description of the ideal male role in Chinese. A Chinese society like Chinese minor expected to be Laura and never complaining always generous always given you know always always helping others but sometimes you know you compromise family all right that's lol Holleran and the fourth and last one is sure Tsai a shirts I as I I understand the shirt to mean real But the CY means at or in a place oh shirts I I'm a little bit Unclear about what this would mean. I think this thing with you know English speakers when they were in Chinese they always interpret things from the you know the literal meaning right. It was good try but Excellent let me down easy. You tried so hard on. Yeah but I think should i. When we used to describe somebody personality you can break it down like you reduce it into elements? You're used together to mean a specific meanings. I can't tell you what Siamese in this specific word right. They have to be interpreted together. So when you say should I mean somebody who's who's reliable solid and who's always doing those things he's supposed to do as opposed to somebody who's always always talking but not doing their job you know so because especially at workplace you get that a lot you know there are people who are always blah blah blah. But then they don't do the worth and the opposite of that somebody who was very Shinsei. Yeah yeah so I think in that case the good translation would just be solid. This person is solid. Ed dependable we in in that sense. It's like the same word as the Chinese worded. This person gives you the feeling of being Dependable you can lean on them and they'll be. Yeah like if somebody thinks too much about showing off about all you know getting trophies and getting medals and getting recognitions rather than doing the real solid work then that person's navigations they're focusing on imaginary things instead of real thing. Yeah Yeah Yeah So. Let's sure Thi- someone who is very solid. Okay so these are the four words that we got I will quiz your Chinese. I'll give you an English definition. You told me the Chinese China's word for it and then we'll jump into the conversation so someone who is generally vacillating or indecisive. New Stations this word means a behavior that is acceptable inappropriate. And good cool if you will. Oh Jeez I can't believe I'm forgetting testing you as a joke but this turned or not to be pretty hard. Don't worry I don't get. It was hold. Oh Oh yeah. Sorry about that my brain. He's dying for some reason. You know we've been talking for between languages which is always hard. Okay this one means someone who is overly nice to the extent of being in a pushover perhaps lower end Lao and then someone who is solid should I should say excellent. Let's jump into this conversation. Josh Jessica Lauren Fan. John Nice a nice. I L Hall then is you've got a new better Syria funding then. Sure yo-yoed Ya Baa a picture shirts either all right so let's run through this sentence by sentence real quickly. The first sentence was I- Josh. Jan should allow Harian. Yeah I as one of those Just sort of expression works Josh. Ginger really is good. Lau hollered really is a pushover Josh. Jewish Sugar La Holland and The next sentence was fan. John Wall Unites People. People Nice Higher Harbor. Yeah this grammar is a little bit complicated. I only have myself to blame because I wrote it The first word Fan John means however or anyway anyway. Yes I'm sort of almost sort of dismissing what came before anyway or yeah. Whoa you nice to be boys you nice is to be too nice overly nice overly nice right which is a law? Horan written overly Nice So all you being overly Nice Nice. I put English in here because this is one of those words about personalities that Chinese people often say in English. Yeah it's one of those words that's sort of worked its way into the language. It's almost like a loan word. So boy you nice is to be too nice and then be ye Means that I'm comparing what comes for the B and what comes after after the FBI. Yeah so cool you Nice Be Blue Nice Nice not nice so I'm comparing oil you nice to nice with not Nice And boy you'd.
"john nice" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Hundred six three six eight six eight six if you're on hold stay there we're joined right now by a very good from the program you have heard him on the show he's a lead NHL analyst and horse racing analyst for NBC sports he played sixteen years in the NHL he won a Stanley Cup with the New York Rangers he is a member of the nineteen eighty four Olympic team and the U. S. hockey hall of fame a recipient of the eighties Bailey award for courage in any John bass center for hockey fights cancer as I mentioned good friend and is now an author author of a new book called any check beating the odds in hockey and in life that book is out right now he's in studio right now SO it is so good to see how are you man what's up John nice to be with you pal a few of these good I'm watching all the time back home in Chicago I got you on the cable I know it I get to be right here in the jungle with you so it's great to be on and I thank you thank you so much and you've always been one of the great storytellers which is why I love talking to you so what was the process for you like to sit down and write this book in other words was it fun was a challenging was emotional it was all the above and I think probably therapeutic Jim considering what is transpired in my life health wise over the course of the last couple of years and I've had the opportunity to write a book over the years just with my journey of whether you know people doubting me to ever get to the National Hockey League of being a kid from Chicago being American born back in the early eighties making the US Olympic hockey team when I was sixteen years old back in nineteen eighty four but I just it was a point where I was like you know who wants to read about me and I was like when I got sick I think no pun intended but I think it was a final chapter in my mind to go ahead and write that book because I thought you know what maybe I can help inspire or bring hope to one person that said Hey I can relate to people that are in a battle with colon cancer and I think that was my goal and that's what the goal of the book is I I think I really believe Jim is that if I can inspire keep somebody away from and help them get through the day let alone the battle of regardless of its colon cancer any type of illness but I think you'll laugh and I think you'll love a little bit more when you read this book and if I can make somebody smile or maybe have them look at something little bit differently than it was well worth to sixteen months and it was penned the paper I can I can I'm not good on that man I don't know and that worldwide web thing I'm no good that's funny you always check joining us on the program right now the book is called beating the odds in hockey and in life it's out right now I want to talk about some of things you went through let's talk some hockey area like for instance you're no stranger to adversity and it goes way back you were cut from the youth prospects do you remember about that I remember going out for a camp and I was like fourteen years old and that particular time I was the best fourteen year old hockey player in our country there was only one better hockey player in North America at that time in his name was merry let me and they have that right at that time they still got a right obviously merry one of the greatest players of all time but I went to a camp German was one of those were you you skate around for an hour and then they go from like three hundred kids two hundred kids and then to twenty kids and I went I went out and then they put the names up on the list and I got cut I'm like wow I mean I was devastated forty years old first adverse they pretty much ever had in hockey and my dad just pretty much look at me and said you know what your work a little harder to be a little bit better let's go so we left home we left the rink we went home and like wow it's a great teaching point at that time I don't know what diversity was like look yeah there are politics involved I don't know what politics were and ended up you know a couple years later making the US Olympic hockey team at sixteen years old all right so that you have that but you did bounce back right so you write about your first training camp with Chicago as a kid from Chicago what was it like to go to your first camp with your hometown team it was a lot of pressure right lot of pressure on me because it never happened before I was the first ever American born native son to be drafted by his hometown team in the first round of the NHL draft and I'm proud of that I mean American hockey is gone through the roof over the course of the last twenty five years but you know what we need to tip our hockey helmets and a nineteen eighty American Klein I see because they really opened up the door for us Jim at the Olympics in Lake Placid in nineteen eighty but you know I I think I learned at a very young age and I think I learned it at home where I went to that training camp with a lot of attention just because I was a Chicago kid and never happened before but I went there and I kept my eyes open my ears open in my mouth shot that's the way that you earn the respect of the older guys in the locker room and professional sports and look I was eighteen when I was playing with some really old guys that were twenty five thirty listen I wish I was twenty five or thirty right I understand you made the point that I guys in the NHL hockey guys are like some of the best guys ever but this was not a case of somebody coming up with Toronto in becoming a maple leaf this should never happen in this country and you're an eighteen year old kid even if you're keeping your mouth shut you were trying to take food off somebody else's day what was it like to go in there and to be in that situation well I mean you you knew exactly why you were there and you knew that look yeah you you may be getting a lot of times like I got a lot of tension I didn't ask for it just happen to come with it and when you're in that situation you're like look I want to play here I signed my contract the opportunity presented itself I'm just gonna try to fit in as best as I can and I'm gonna look at that's how I think I learned I think it's helped me both on and off the ice over the years gym where I can look at how older guys carry themselves like kind of what to say a word to go how to act how you treat the trainer who is who is now room at that time the Dennis of art it doesn't Wilson I had Troy Murray I mean I had Alsea court I mean it's also a great esteem guy Steve Larmer wind up playing with with the Rangers in ninety four we won a Stanley Cup so I think for me I learned from those older guys and hopefully I was able to transfer what I learned from those guys to the guys that were younger when I was a veteran guy what an amazing room that must've been yeah a check joining me in studio it's got a brand new book out so your first game against Detroit what do you remember about pulling on that sweater and heading out on to the ice for the first time well for all those years and we all have our favorite teams is is young kids and for me it was the Blackhawks and I recycled all the games at the old Chicago stadium in all I I always dreamed about what it would be like because I always knew what it was like to look from the stands at Chicago stadium through the glass out on the ice and all of a sudden now it's reversal I'm the one that's standing on the ice looking through the stands into the crowd in all by the way I have my family there my mom and dad and my brothers and and you know the city of Chicago because I was one of them and when I was one of their very own soul it was it's something I dreamed about my whole life and be able to put that sweater on for the very first time was like I live the dream I was I was living a dream to be able to put that on and I'm stand and set a member sitting in the locker room the old Chicago stadium we're getting ready to play the red wings and I'm just like this is it like I I've arrived like this is that now you got it now you got to go out there do something about it but it is so much more to it I mean the team wins you score the crowd was chanting your name now that is the stuff of dreams right there what was that experience like yeah it was it was it's hard not to have it a tear come down your eye in a situation like that because you always wonder like how with the park on the back of the net like what would I be able to succeed how would I be received a how would I react all those things and and obviously an arch rival game between the Blackhawks and red wings so it was I mean we hear the phrase a lot I mean a dream come true but I mean it was something I thought about my whole life to be able to play one game let alone play a thousand games in NHL but to be able to score ball my first game certainly capped off Eddie Olczyk joining me in studio it's got a brand new book out it's called beating the odds in hockey and in life this book is out right now you can get it it's a great read I do not have talked in the past about so many things and some of the other challenges and we've talked about the time there you were diagnosed with Saddam on August fourth twenty seventeen seven oh seven PM when you get the call telling you you have stage three colon cancer is there anything in your life that could possibly prepared you for that moment no not at all Jim it was you know five days prior to that I was a healthy guy in annexing how I wake up I can't go to the bathroom for a couple of days and next thing on having a six hour surgery removing forty inches my colon.
