What is Reconciliation?
"Today. We're gonna be talking about reconciliation. We're going to be talking about the term reconciliation defining it. We're going to end up doing this in two parts We're gonna talk about when reconciliation is possible today right in this episode And then in the next episode. we're gonna talk about. What do you do when it's not possible because there are those cases absolutely you know. The bible says a lot about reconciliation after all. It's a book about reconciliation from the first word. Exactly you know eat ease. The story of god's reconciling sinful humanity to himself right when we talk about reconciliation. Obviously we're talking about bringing peace bringing unity where that unity that that piece has been broken where there was strife Interestingly i looked up the word in the greek And you know sometimes you can get a an interesting little insight into the word in the original greek in the new testament and it just kind of gives it a little bit of a different coloring that you don't quite catch in our english. Bibles right happens. Yeah happens every once in a while. we saw that last week in fact when we looked cheerfulness. Yes and was. I open right so this week. I looked up the word reconcile reconciliation. And you know what it means. Actually if you go back into the original greek no idea. Charlie i don't It means to reconcile why how those greeks just nuance everything. That's that's good sometimes. Sometimes what you get out of. It is simply the word that is added as it have this connotation though of exchanging like exchanging currency so there is this colorization there of of that which is which is kind of interesting. This idea that your taking one currency currency of disunity of bitterness of anger anger animosity resentment. And you're going to the currency counter and getting new currency your exchanging it for new currency usually like that of union illustration So there is there is some colorization. Yes but that's really what reconciliation is and we're not going to look at every single bible verse about this. We're not going to read. Single bible verse. I'll give them. You can look them up later. But god definitely encourages us towards reconciliation for one thing. There's matthew five nine. There is matthew five twenty four. There's luke twelve fifty eight. If i can read my own handwriting scandal laugh about people. I'm recording this now. I don't even know if there is a loop twelve. Fifty eight handwrite. I fifty eight. It might be the anthony russo version. Yes there is. There is a luke. Twelve fifty eight. There you go romans twelve. I uh saloons five thirteen so when we're thinking reconciliation it's onto planes. It's this article. God and man Plane and then. There's also this horizontal man to man or person to person or however you want to write the main thing as we think about. Reconciliation is especially s christians. The fuel for our reconciliation. The power where it come from is from our reconciliation. I with god
Use Books (And The Internet) As A Door, Not A Mirror
"Well i just finished a number. Netflix series lockdown is certainly helped me. Take care of my to do list on netflix. If nothing else and this time it was the series. Pretend it's a city which is a short interview series. Between martin scorsese director. And fran liebowitz the american author and humorist and fran is a lover of books and in this series. She talks about her love of book several times but one of the lines that really grabbed me was way. She said that a book should really be a door into a new world. And that's the beauty of reading books particularly when you're young it's a chance for you to escape the world. You're in a chance for you to go into another fantasy world or at least to learn about another different world. And i guess the inference in a lot of what she was saying was that. That's what's missing today because we're not reading books like we should or as like we used to and i think it's an interesting comparison to the internet because these days in the internet. We're all stuck into this world of social media which oftentimes thanks to the algorithms of course is really a mirror. It's a reflection of what we are interested in what we like and what we do. It doesn't necessarily show us new things over time. And that's the serendipity that fran talks about in this series as well of walking into a bookstore and just discovering a book opening it up using that as the door into this new world. Learning something that you did not know so. I think the comparison really is apt in today's world. And i think we should be using books as we should the internet and social media and everything else that lives on the internet as a door not just as a mirror that reflects who we are and what we are and it's something you may recall. He's got a very good memory. I spoke about way back in episode fifty to this show where i spoke about the need for businesses in general to look out the window. Not look in the mirror with her that we should reflect. We should take a good look at ourselves in the mirror but that is only gonna show what we already know will show us the image of what we already have but if you look out the window and have a look at what's going on around you you can actually learn a lot more. And it's basically the same point as frame was saying in this series. It's on netflix. Check it out. Pretend it's the city pretty funny actually or
Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases
"You listen to podcasts. In twenty seven states nursing homes have gotten special legal protections during the covid nineteen pandemic that means in most cases families can't sue if someone they love got sick or died at one the nursing home say they're doing the best they can and they need those legal shields but that also may stop people whose injuries have nothing to do with covid from seeking justice in the courts. Noel talked with. Npr's jaffe been looking into this. Why were these laws passed in the first place. You remember that. The corona virus outbreak started as far as most people were aware in a nursing home and currently long term care facilities account for more than a third of all deaths from covid nineteen nursing homes were caught scrambling for personal protective equipment. They were shifting recommendations of how contagious disease was and the industry made a case that they shouldn't be held responsible for dealing with this moving target. Are there any lawsuits pending against nursing homes relating to covid or did these immunity laws. Basically finish them off. While there is one in durham north carolina. It's questioned whether it's related to covid. Possibly it's the first of its kind involves the death of a woman named palestine house. Her daughter lisa set her. Mother's death had nothing to do with corona virus. Her mother had a pressure ulcer or bedsores there commonly known she'd had it since december of twenty eighteen and it just got worse. It became infected. Lisa how said she begged traber and rehabilitation center. Send her mother to the emergency room but they assured us that they could handle it. Lisa house and her three sisters had their doubts and their experience traber and rehabilitation center. Didn't seem to be able to handle much on a scale of one to five stars. The federal government gives traber and just one it also gets below average ratings on the ratio of nurses to residence. The government has find traber. Almost one hundred ninety thousand dollars in the past three years. We were there a lot and we found ourselves having to bathe her just general things they were supposed to do. We'd come in several times when she hadn't been fed her just sitting there. The house sisters hadn't had a lot of luck with nursing homes. In general trae burn was the third one they tried. It was close to where they live so the sisters could visit often but it hardly mattered. One families were locked out of nursing homes in march. Everything got harder and took longer. Palestine house needed specialists in wound care and iv antibiotics. Lisa house had her mother's power of attorney again. She begged trae burn rehabilitation to send her mother to the emergency room where they could find the specialists. She needed again. She was turned down their excuses. Were well the hospitals not taking new patients because of covert and she would be safer she stayed here and the facility is equipped to take care of your mother and none of those things turned out to be true. Palestine house died a train rehabilitation center on april fourteenth. Twenty twenty one month later. North carolina passed a sweeping liability shield for long term care facilities. The nursing homes with rare exceptions were immune from lawsuits. The measure was made retroactive to march tenth. Lisa house and her sisters decided to suit rayburn. Anyway elizabeth todd is their attorney. Palestine house did not have to die in that way or at that time and for the legislature to say that the nursing homes need protection in the middle of a pandemic not the nursing. Home patients is outrageous and it's unjust north carolina's immunity law lasts until the pandemic is over. Todd is especially worried that the law gives the free past nursing homes with low staffing trayvon and so literally the nursing homes can take their own understaffing their chronic understaffing and use it as a shield to prevent any liability at all during the covid pandemic through their attorneys train. Rehabilitation center declined comment but for many in the long term care industry. These immunity measures are welcome. Relief says dave voelpel. Ceo of the zona healthcare association. Arizona governor doug ducey was among the first to sign an executive order granting nursing homes and assisted living facilities legal immunity and for that we apart him. Because that just takes a little bit of pressure off. Though paul says it allows facilities to focus on what's most important we need to worry about. Keeping covert out of the building that sometimes that cuts into the bottom line says bubble take for instance one hundred bed building and they really have fifty rooms two beds per room that to keep infection from spreading those double rooms may have to be converted to private rooms. So revenue is cut in half. It really takes its toll on the business side of the ledger. Long term care facilities face a crisis if existential proportions says mark reagan the attorney for the california association of health facilities that's because liability insurance are excluding things covert when they renew policies which would mean that any claims made regarding covert infection would be subject to exclusion and no insurance coverage congressional. Republicans wanted a national immunity law but dropped as part of the deal for the latest coronavirus. Relief package reagan. Still has hopes what we're merely asking for is stats caregivers. And their employers. Don't get punished for doing the best that they could. Under the circumstances. I imagine that the family of palestine house doesn't in fact the nursing home was doing the best it could for their mother. Well right there attorney. Elizabeth todd points out that one of north carolina's immunity criteria is that facility must be acting in good faith and she doesn't see how can argue that they did that. So where does
Investment in climate tech is also economic stimulus
"Climate change is high on president biden agenda last week the president rejoined the paris climate accord on wednesday reuters reports. He's expected to announce a new climate order that will introduce new regulations and make climate change a national security priority and biden his tied economic recovery to climate investment new jobs new infrastructure and new funding. Jayco is managing director of the private equity firm light smith group which is focused on climate adaptation technology. You're gonna have to rebuild the economy for some kind of future. So let's say we did a big infrastructure package which i think potentially incoming secretary good a judge was talking about. Are we gonna build bridges for the sea levels and river levels that we have today. The ones that we think are likely to be around ten twenty or fifty years from now and i would suggest the latter is better idea than the former including many other components that we saw really stark contrast last year. Like how does this impact different types of communities. Where's the equity and justice implications for the kind of future that we're building both from an environmental implication standpoint. And then more broadly speaking in the kind of diversity inclusion universe as well as different distributions of how that impact has occurred economically. There's a big conference on climate adaptation starting this week which is virtual but i wonder what role is the. Us expected to play in that. I think it's expected to play a major role over the course of the entire year and beyond there is a lot of attention being focused on what it means for the us to be back in a leadership position not just re signing onto the perez agreement but taking a leadership position in terms of reductions reels gas emissions kind of where our net zero targeting really going to go in. And we're going to do to do that. But also i think real opportunity to seize a leadership position around adaptation and climate science. What is your sense of. How big a role. Resilience is slated to play. Are there any official announcements on that front. Well i'd say that there are probably three pieces of the puzzle to those pieces seem very

The Cut Throat War To Dominate China's Grocery Delivery Industry
"Speaking of china. You had a great story on. I didn't i mean who knew this. This is why. I love rest of world because we're learning about stuff that the cutthroat war dominate china's grocery delivery industry is there a grocery delivery industry in china. I'm kind of. I don't know why i'm surprised to hear that. Yes so follow me for a second. This is a really crazy model. That like a hundred million people plus china right now. So it's really big and it's really really and it's attracting sort of like grandma's almost like aunties You know people are really price conscious so imagine you have a group chat and all of your neighbors or that group chat and you have sort of like you know maybe a local state home mom or someone you know. Maybe the corner store owner Someone who owns a seven eleven and they are the moderator of that group chat every single day they give you some grazie deals for fresh food and all you do is in that group chat. Say what you and the next day the stay at home. Mom we'll get it all delivered to her place and then she'll bring it to you or you go pick it up at the corner store. So they're called group buying groups so she gets everything and then parcells it out to her neighbors the like uber or d. Which is the over of china is invested in this every ten cent. Jd dot com alibaba. All the biggest tech companies are investing in this all over the place. It's a huge frenzy. Just sort of like get all these people because cheer point. These are people who didn't usually virus online. They were just go to the corner store and get stuff previously but what this is doing is leading all those big tech companies. Cut a ton of costs. They get marketing from the stay at home mom. They get logistics. they don't have to go to each person's home right the stay at home. Mom will take care of that for them. So the money to right she gets she gets about five ten percent commission so she's incentivized to get as many people as possible most of these people. Have you know anywhere from a couple hundred to nine hundred. She's all that are managing. It's huge or that and it can be can be a big source of business for them and it's a crazy trend in china and it's become really really wild actually two employees at one of the companies that his invested in this actually died Recently which sort of set off this huge reckoning about like you know are they pushing employees too hard at these companies you know is this frenzy worth it. The government is mad about it. But i love it because it's like stay at home. Mom selling vegetables by everyone in tech is just all over themselves over it. Well as you out It's a in. The article is highly customized. Because this one person who is managing this group note gets to know everybody their interests their tastes what they want what they don't like so it works. It works really well. I have to say come on. If you're like cute little neighbor texas everyday and it was like sale on. Carrots are totally doing. Yeah fifty cents. Bundled carrots come grabbed them tomorrow with your eggs and your milk or whatever. Of course i would do it. This model could work in the rest of the world. I think that. Like when i think about someone like my mom who's like knocking to navigate. Instacart knows how to use. I message the thing is that it's integrated into chat right and we don't really have each year in the same ways. I think we're sort of far off. But i do think you know this super-charged by the pandemic there are way more people anger. She's online than there used to be. And i think that instacart is ripe for disruption. I think like you know whole foods. Delivery is not doing anything particularly Innovative and i think even amazon and these logistics giants are still really struggling with how to make a profit off of this and these chinese companies sort of figured out a way to do it although to be fair. They're offering really really low prices because he's really price conscious consumers and suppliers or getting mad. Because they're like selling a bottle of cooking oil for like less than the actual cost to make it so there are a lot of sort of reminds me of when it was like two dollars. Take an uber anywhere. Because they were just pouring money on it and get a fifty percent off lift ride. If you just open the super happen the lift up notice that you were doing that. We all remember. That's it feels like that. Yeah so i do worry it. Sort of gimmicky.

Which Matters More, a First or Last Impression?
"Emails from a listener named sam cohn who happens to be a nursing student and he wants to know this our first impressions or last impressions more impactful question or you're thinking about the colonoscopy study i mean honestly there's only one cold i'll give you study will. There are many colonoscopy studies in the medical literature but only one in the psychology literature that i'm aware of exactly that social scientists would know about and that's the famous economy and colleagues study about peak and end the peak and theory. So can you tell us. About the pecan therion. How colonoscopy works to illustrate that so danny katamon and his colleagues did a study where everybody in. The study is getting a colonoscopy. You are randomly assigned. These are people who are already going to be getting on us. Yes i think. It was a collaboration with physicians. If only there were experiments that we could sign up for four which we get a colonoscopy decide. The i would prefer the chemotherapy pleased survey. I'm going to prefer the high fat diet one. This study randomly signs patients who are already signed up for a colonoscopy to either get colonoscopy as usual which i am told and as they say in the article is a pretty unpleasant experience because of the mechanics of the whole thing and the experimental condition is where the exploratory equipment of they have to put into. You is held there for a little longer than would necessarily be the case and your instinct might say oh. That's the bad version of the experiment right because you get more pain but what was so clever about this experiment is that yet. It's more pain. But because you're just having the tip of the scope to sitting there in the rectum. It's more moderate level of pain than what it's moving around during the colonoscopy itself. I think they would probably just call it a mild discomfort compared to a greater discomfort. I mean i can't imagine what it's like to have. The tip of a colonoscopy will come back in a week or two and give us the details so the reason why is interesting. Is that patients who underwent the extended procedure with the additional. Moderate level of pain actually raided the overall experience as less unpleasant and the reason why this was so important is that congressman was at the time developing a theory. Where there is the remembering self and the experiencing self and he says the experiencing self is just experiencing moment by moment. How happy my house. Adami anxious in my hungry am i but the remembering self is consolidating all of that and collapsing it into a memory and he had the theory that when the remembering self processes information and collapses a whole string of moments into one impression. Two things are going to take additional weight. One is the peak of the experience of the high in the low points and the other is the end points and so this famous study affirmed the hypothesis that the end of an experience takes disproportionate weight when we evaluate the overall experience. Now knowing the colonoscopy study what will i ask for if i had the chance to ask my doctor you say gimme the katamon colonoscopy please exactly the katamon special so it's interesting. Is that even though. This finding is a sturdy finding. I don't want the extra pain although since you're inexperienced in colonoscopy so we'll have to see if maybe you'll change your mind after you have but let's say that we want to take it out of the realm of the colonoscopy which i probably should and let's say we want to steer this back toward what sam is asking about the first impression or the last impression imagine a family vacation but say you are apparent with kids and a spouse or whatnot and you go on a family holiday. What would you rather have of the to a great beginning or a great ending y. So oh gosh. I think i would like to have a great ending because i do think the peak end effect does hold true so my ambivalence at my colonoscopy if the vacation we're say four days i would rather have a terrible first day and a wonderful fourth day than the opposite that makes sense because as you were describing the lasting thing is the memory so of course you want that to the positive one. Yeah the whole memory is going to be colored by the last moments more than like the mid point or something. I have to say. Ever since i read that paper years ago and interviewed donald reddell meyer one of the co about it. I have tried to apply the peak in theory all the time in my life in interviews with my family and random encounters with strangers. The minute something good happens. I just stop so you just leave when i learned about this. It made me think first of all of so many rituals that are part of our lives that seem to capitalize on the peak in theory. So dessert why desert last. Why don't we eat it. i. I don't know how much yoga you're doing these days so much. Okay so shiva's nina. Do you know this corpse pose at the end. Of course it feels so good to be sitting there and completely relaxing. And there's a reason. I think that every yoga practice ends with shibata so the next time you think. Do i wanna do yoga. Your memory is least colored by that. But that's challenge this notion so i think you've done a pretty good job persuading everybody. The last impressions are really powerful. But let's talk about first impressions. I mean there's this whole mountain of cliches about that right. You never get a second chance to make a first impression and so on and let's go back to that vacation if you show up with your family to this place where your vacation for four days in your first impression is terrible. Doesn't that set a tone that will be impossible to recover from and from which no final impression is possible to save the experience yet to argue that last impressions take on disproportionate. Way does not say that first impressions. Don't matter disproportionately also for different reasons. First impressions can carry more weight than the mid point or some other point in experience. So one reason is that first impression. Has this kind of path dependency so say you have a really bad day of that. Four day vacation. Everybody's now on a sour mood now. You're all fighting on day two and then because you were fighting on day two day. Three is a total catastrophe. Even those comes out you get off on the wrong foot as it were. And then everything. Kind of goes downhill from there. You know when. I first read this question from sam our first impressions or less imprisons more impactful. My initial impulse was to try to answer it. Like we're trying to do now but my my second impulse and the deeper one was to view it as i do as a writer which is to say wool. Both i think for everything i've ever written whether to book an article Podcast script whatever. I'd probably spend three to ten times more effort on the beginning and the end than on anything else because as a writer was informed years and years and years ago by my experiences a reader which is at the beginning really really matters the ending really really matters and there's also a notion expressed in various places. I don't know where i got it from. Maybe the talmud or shakespeare that the best beginnings have a little bit of the end in them. If the writing is good so i do wonder if maybe sam is pursuing an either or choice when the answer in fact should be an end answer. Both end is usually the answer to checkoff and the great multiple choice of life. The way that this question was framed. It's like when we are meeting another person or when you open a book or you start an article or you start listening to a podcast or watching a movie. It's so clear to us when we just think about those experiences. How the very beginning. It does matter because you are very quickly coming to judgments. And there is this research on thin slicing by among others nominee embody. Maybe you did freakonomics episode on this note. I read about thin slicing in one of malcolm. Glows books blink. This is the idea that you can come to very quick impressions and they're not even necessarily verbally articulated ones but just got feelings of like good or bad in milliseconds and that these very quick impressions can be predictive of later judgements. That are much more deliberative and so forth. That's an argument in favor of a strong first impression because in some cases lake with a move your book or a person if the first impression is not a good one there will be no opportunity for a final impression where the final impression will be one second after the first impression right hopefully less with people and more with like net flicks. So imagine there a job interview and your first impression of candid. It is a positive one. Well danny ottoman would remind us that then confirmation bias is gonna kick in and then for the last fifty eight minutes of the hour long interview. You're just going to be confirming your own positive impression. And so there's a path dependency in judgment and not just the path dependency in life events.

"We're all glad to have survived. Thousand twenty the change in the us administration suggests it may be time for a different tone in how americans work on the issues our country needs to tack. But are we up. For an essay on the unraveling of america an anthropologist. Wade davis wrote for rolling stone last august. Got people talking. He joins us now from his home near vancouver. Bc to explore. America's changing role in global politics is essay is sort of like a letter to a neighbor who needs a little tough love and that neighbor happens to be a canadian anthropologist. Wade thanks for joining us. My pleasure could be with you so you wrote an article. That apparently is the most widely read thing. Rolling stone has ever published. Will it hit a real nerve. Million people read it on the site. It trended number one for five weeks three hundred and sixty two million social media impressions within two months and my visitations to my wikipedia. Site soared from a modest one hundred fifty a day to over four thousand. Just hit this nerve wrecking a none of us expected that nervous like that Little quip that's going around on the internet suggesting that to live in candidate today is like owning an apartment above a meth lab. Robin williams. Actually your essays. You say. it's a love letter. But it's a love letter called the unraveling of your neighbor america. How is it a love letter. Well i think when you have someone you love and you do. A family intervention. The most important in the first thing have to do is hold a mirror chisholm to show how far they've fallen. Because that's the first step in the path of rehabilitation and. I think that things have happened so fast. In america that in a way people look in the mirror and they still see the myth of their on exceptionalism and they don't necessarily see how far things have changed and i think kovic revealed that you know it didn't cost the country to fall but revealed to what extent the country had fallen. And i think a lot of that's just about the nature of community and i think where canada's not perfect place but it is interesting to compare the consequences of covid in the two countries way. It's it's interesting because americans. I think we take up a little bit offence when somebody from country critiques us. But we're more likely to listen to canadians. And it's so helpful for somebody to remind us that the global view of america has changed a little bit. I mean people used to look at us differently than they do now well as a great reporter for the irish times you know. They've been many motions expressed about america's since world war two but one that has never been there is there now that was pity. And that was how the world saw america's frontline healthcare workers were waiting. The arrival of emergency supplies on air lists from china. It was almost like the hinge of history opened the asian century. Pity that's something new. Another thought that. I've had is. When i if i ever refer to america's as an empire people take offense to it but we're an empire to me and empires rise and empires fall. I'm a historian and and it's frustrating to me. How unable or unwilling americans are to realize. History may be speaking to us in your essay. You reminded us how empires come and empires go. Well no kingdom expects to fall and they all do you know historically if you think in european tradition. The fifteenth century belonged to the portuguese the sixteenth to the spanish to seventeen to the dutch. The eighteenth to the french and the the nineteenth to the british. The british empire actually reached its greatest geographical extent in nineteen thirty five. But we know of course that by the end of world war two empire was bankrupt and bled white in the torch had in fact passed to america. What clearly yeah. I mean if you look at the numbers after world war two we were so dominant and comfortable thinking. We're the last great superpower. But of course as you said look at what the past has taught us and i think pretty clearly right now. There's a changing of the the torch ever further westward in it and china is emerging as the next great superpower I mean i don't necessarily look forward to that moment with any kind of The light and i think if if and when we find out that this is the fading of the american era. I think we'll be very nostalgic for the best years of that era.
SportQuake CEO on Launching EsportQuake, Getting Cristiano Ronaldo into Garena Free Fire
"Fire at freeflyer is actually one of my favorite games to focus out of the Esports gaming world right now due to its massive success primarily in Brazil, which also makes it a natural choice for football partnership home considering Brazil's love of football going back decades and this partnership centered around operation quota, which debuted in December and allowed players of free fire to play em as Cristiano Ronaldo the which is pretty cool deal Matt. How did that deal come about? What was the process like to bring one of the biggest names in the world? It's Sports in other entertainment and so like Liberty into a mobile Battle Royale greater freefire. Yeah, it was it was a really exciting project to work with the guys on Thursday from the whole kind of ideation and blueprint of the idea through to the the integration and Page the final execution both in terms of the in-game integration and and the marketing around the partnership I think life to start at the beginning. I set up sport Quake fifteen years ago, and I had a background in media and Thursdays soccer or football a depending on what we're calling it today, and I'd worked at a number of large advertising agencies and then moved into sport media page. With Sky Sports is the Premier League host broadcaster and then spent four years as commercial director at Tottenham Hotspur, which is one of the big three London football franchises wage. And when I set up sport quake in that time over the. I view is very much that we're in a world where they, you know Sports Media Tech and gaming increasingly are coming more and more together and we're seeing lots of really really interesting collaborations as a result of that and primarily right. It's about bringing these two different audiences together to create more impact and awareness. And so as you and and your listeners, no doubt will be aware or if not, you know free fire, which is owned. No, Karina which is part of the C group. We've worked with the c group to some time and we've worked with an e-commerce business they have which is very strong in Southeast Asia that offers a service similar to Amazon in those markets and see is actually the best performing Chef globally over the last twelve months. I think it's kind of five EXT over the last twelve months and is within that organization as the e-commerce business Sharpie. It has to read free flight and we're done some work with with Sharpie with Ronaldo in the fall of 2018 and it performed extraordinarily well and through that and then relationships with out throughout the group the guys that Greener thoughts. It could be something here to do something with him as well. But with their own sort of twist and that was really where the kind of Genesis of the idea came from to bring his audience and IP together with With Their audience and they obviously are the the number one game. If not, the number one guy one of the the very top games in the world. I mean, I think they have something like two hundred and fifty million downloads and a hundred million daily sneezes and and Ronaldo himself in terms of his social media following putting aside what he delivers through the TV platform around baseball games. He his social media follow me is is the biggest in the world or anyone right? So he's got over for bigger than the cardassians bigger than J Lo and a dog Oh force and he's got something like four hundred and fifty million plus followers. And so the idea was to bring these two giants together in Partnership. Absolutely. I pulled up the list of the most played mobile games by player count and you said four hundred fifty billion. That's exactly what grade at last reported. According wage is article it August 2019, but they were one of the most downloaded mobile games in the world in 2019 to your point and have driven just a pretty insane bout of viewership at my favorite example of just sort of how big Great a free-fire is is the Esports organization loud gave a down in Brazil. They launched in I think mid June 2018 and have crossed their one point seven billion views on their YouTube channel for comparison the FaZe Clan account, which has been running for ten years now and has numerous viral videos is that just over what billion views so two years loud gaming which focuses almost entirely a great a free fire has completely surpassed FaZe Clan's called Dead output. Yeah, really quickly that just kind of gives you an idea of hey, this is how popular this game is. And and I think really where their their their view was listen, and as the market leader, we really want to lead and and and set the agenda and you know clearly we have as you just said large choice, you know of of of of gamers in terms of you know, everything from Hardcore to get real Gamers, but there's something really exciting here that we think we could do to Delight. Both are are cool gaming fans while also bringing in even more mainstream players to the game and also just kind of Setting the agenda for the industry in terms of you know, this is how you do these collaborations. Absolutely, that's really crucial to and let's talk a little bit about that collaboration. We you mentioned how everything is coming together and free fire it off is actually representation of just how far Tech has advanced recently. What do you think about what mobile games were even four or five years ago to the point that there now seems reals which is the most server intensive Gabe that you could a badge it with 100. I'm not sure how many people actually drop into free-fire but you know, the typical number is 100 people dropping in at the same time as to do that auto mobile photo, but will technology and something that old he became possible in the last few years. And now you also see at the same time the ability to bring Cristiano Ronaldo into the game and that's something that you know, we've seen with games like FIFA in the past where they model people they model real athletes in those situations, but there's something different to bring home. Into a battle royale, I'd have the play a character this case kro. Do what had to happen on the back end to make this a reality. Was there any hesitation for any of the parties about potential free Christian although into a game like free fire? Yeah, so so obviously we've worked with Ronaldo and his people a number of times before the great relationship with them. And as I say, he had worked with us before with their e-commerce business shopping and so there was a relationship with the group home and we obviously talked him through the the opportunity. We Karina and very much felt that the worst some things to be aware of around the table game it was but that if we executed it in in the right way that it could be really amazing. And so, you know and and back to your point about the the quality of of tech and delivery nowadays, you know and and huge shout-out to to Garena, you know, they they they pull together this amazing kind of personality and character both conceptually and also graphically off and it was developed in conjunction with Cristiano and his team as well in terms of the various things that he could do and so forth and so, you know the exit the idea Asian execution that have been phenomenal when as you say that, you know, we wouldn't be able to do that if if take wasn't where it where it is where is today off? But yes, it's it's really it's really amazing and the thing that's so you
"k. fifty" Discussed on NPR Politics Podcast
"Thursday january twenty first. Things may have changed by the time you hear this. Enjoy the show. I mean happy birthday to her but a forty six mile run does not sound like my kind of celebration. I am tired just thinking about that. Think about half of that. How long does that take too long. Mara hey there. It's the politics podcast. I'm wanna summers. I cover demographics and culture Susan davis i cover. Congress and i'm mara liasson national political correspondent. This is president biden's first full day in office and he's already signed a series of orders and directives that are meant to target the covid nineteen pandemic mar out. What's in these packages. What are your takeaways here. The big takeaway is that the biden administration is gonna use the federal government much more aggressively than the trump administration. Did the trump administration pretty much left all things cova to the states and then they said that they would step in to help. Unnecessary biden has signed an order to direct government agencies to use the defense production act. Trump did this to but biden's gonna use it a lot more aggressively. He wants to use it to address shortfalls in all sorts of things. Vaccines masks gowns. Gloves syringes And also he's going to try to get one hundred million doses of the vaccine not just manufactured but distributed an into people's arms in one hundred days. And it's just worth stating. I think that a number of things that we saw the president roll out between today and yesterday on that first sweep of executive orders. These are things that people had been calling on the trump administration to do for some time. That they they did not do. That's right and the according to the incoming biden administration people. They say that things are worse than they thought. There was no vaccine distribution plan. When they came in there now saying they're going to have to start from scratch sue. We also have heard that the new administration is pushing congress to pass a one point nine trillion dollar relief package. And you know any way you cut it. That is a lot of money. What's in the package. This is one point nine trillion in addition to trillions of dollars. That have already gone out the door. A lot of this package is really familiar. Things additional unemployment benefits direct aid to small businesses. The big thing that has gotten a lot of attention is the fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks that are included in it. If you recall in the last Cova bill that congress passed included a six hundred dollar checks and then there was this big blow up because president trump then said he wanted it to be two thousand dollars. Democrats said great. Let's do that so this fourteen hundred dollar number is sort of combining those two to get to the two thousand dollars. It's kind of an arbitrary figure to begin with because of the political moment and trump saying he supported it and everybody rallying around it. Democrats are kind of stuck with this figure right now and it's not gonna be easy. You know sue. There were a small handful of republicans who were favorable to those two thousand dollar checks. He like like josh hawley. And marco rubio We know that since biden has been inaugurated all of a sudden republicans have become born again deficit hawks. They never seemed to care about the deficit when there's a republican in the white house and we know that trump increase the deficit to historic levels. Are they still going to support the two thousand dollar checks now that it's a democratic president. Who wants them you know. It's a tricky issue. Because i do think there's a lot of republicans like josh hawley. Who take away from the trump era that there is a popularity and economic populism that trump sort of championed and that they see this as a winning political issue especially because a lot of their own base again is white working class people who could really benefit from this money from the direct stimulus. But there's also some hesitancy among some democrats that this is the right thing to do and it's kind of a blunt instrument to just put money out there and argue that that money might be better spent in more targeted ways. The big question and we're going to say this so many times over the next two years is what can get through the senate right and roy blunt. Who's a top republican. He's a member. Leadership said on the whole he saw the one point. Nine trillion dollar package is a non starter but it was a package that had a lot of starters in it so i do think that they are hopeful that they can get to some kind of common middle ground. But the you know. Joe biden's not gonna get exactly what he outlined in his bill. It's going to have to kind of go through the sausage making process and maybe break it into parts. Yeah mara a lot of the incoming administration's priorities were previewed. Last night at a white house. Press briefing and i have to say that briefing. I watched it from home looked and sounded a lot different from recent white house. Press briefings well first of all. It happened right and we went for about a year without white house. Press briefings happening at all. But my reaction when i was watching it last night was so normal. That was what i was thinking There's a lot of information. There wasn't a lot of sparring with the press. The first press briefing of the trump era remember was all about crowd. size This is all about what the administration wants to do. It doesn't mean that the press and the and the administration the biden administration will always get along But it was pretty normal and the new incoming press secretary. Jen psaki said that she is committed to transmit information that's accurate and truthful and transparent and not all that information as she said we'll be easy to take it also sounded like she was committing to the return of the regular press briefing. As you noted those did not happen frequently. Yes definitely definitely all right. Let's take a quick break and when we get back we'll talk more about.

"When that was when they said more amazing. See that really seventy. Six percent of the public thinks that Michael Jordan was more amazing than Lebron James. I mean we'll say that you know. Knock on abroad. But what a by biggest takeaways obviously new great and doesn't make watching the footage and US cool because like you said it is just like the way he moves is so fluid and graceful but I had forgotten how charismatic he is. He's yeah exactly the Paul Fight. He is my sees more amazing than run. But I I was just shocked that so many people adapt poll to me even though I have the feeling based on what we're talking about here in what the dial has been around the documentary that this would sort of further polarize the people who think broadside you'll take in site. I was shocked at that. Poll said I think it was seventy six percent of people prefer Jordan and sixty five or years and they'd rather have a drink with Jordan James and sixty percent people that Jordan had a more positive impact off the court. I mean in terms of sheer basketball popularity. I guess I get that but when it comes to like visible and sociopolitical stuff. I don't know how you could possibly say that Jordan. Bigger impact backed off the court. Yeah I mean that's one of the things the fascinating about this whole thing is that charisma is king and Michael Jordan. Being someone telling his own story and being that charismatic has covered up the fact that. I don't feel that this journalism like him having control of the final product and essentially rewriting the narrative history of twenty years of NBA basketball. And you're saying his perspective is the way that it was is really unique but listening to him talk. Listening to the fact that he was able to settle grudges essentially put up. What he said he was going to do is fascinating. It's unique and it's almost like legendary. What makes Michael Michael? But that's able to cover up a lot of the flaws in the documentary and I think is shaped a lot of people's perspective. That I find interesting I agree. I mean I think the take that is. I have admittedly considered to not a ton of like like I watched alternate says but I have not consumed a tunnel like Medicare coverage about the last dance but I would assume because the same knock I sort of had originally watching it that people who are sort of old school capital J. Journalists are not super happy with this because it's not very objective right like not only about Jordan but it makes Jordan the final word on everything right like he is the arbiter adjudicator of everything that goes into the dock. And I totally get why from purely Old School Journalism of objectivity standpoint. People have a problem with that. But then I was thinking about that and like those are the most some of those compelling bits of the documentary right like handing Jordan the IPAD and having him. React to Isaiah Thomas talking about the not shaking their hands are talking Gary Payton shutting down again I get why from an object to standpoint. That is not maybe the the proper way to do it but that was like some of the best stuff right and so. I don't think this is a classic documentary but I think if you take faced I this is GonNa be from Jordan's perspective than you can kinda get past the old notions of what again a capital. J. Journals documentary to be just sort of luxury and Jordan having these incredible commentary. 'cause you haven't seen a comment on those moments in that. That part is super cool. Yeah I think it's a really good way to put it. I think that this was more of a piece about historical memory than actual journalism and Michael was so charming even when he is an asked. Scott morale and a bully and something that would now be sort of canceled in our current culture yesterday. That he doesn't is such like sort of a classic Alpha male and always resulted in a win that it was able to convince guys who would otherwise not considered because of this journalism to take as Gospel. And that's like a really interesting thing and that's like also you know something about Michael Jordan commenting on these moments because the historical memory of Michael Jordan to all of these journalists. They're like these are probably some of the most happy compelling spectacular moments of their career. I mean like the guys that you and I and a lot of people look up to in this industry are guys who were awed by Michael Jordan and then to hear him sort of corroborate all of the Legend and myth making that surrounded him and crop rate them as true from that perspective. I'm sure it was exciting. Even for that totally. Although I do think what area were they seem to have gone like? I felt like okay by episode. Six seven seventy nine. I was like they're pushing a little too hard. Was you know they made they made? It seem like I'm Jay was the cause of you know when Scott Burrell had his our rivers twenty four point game right like they made. It seem like that happen because in Jay was hard on him and like I don't really know how closely tethered those things are You know 'cause a leads to be that felt to me like they're pushing that a little too much but I don't know I mean maybe that is how I think having someone like Jordan on your team like obviously drives you to work harder and want to play better maybe rise to the moment but it just made it seem like he was sort of facilitating factor in everything. Yeah well what's unique about that? Is I think Jordan believe that. I think to his core. He believed that he had to be an ass be great and he thought he had been asked connect with these teammates. Who could in no way understand the pressure that was on him or what he was going through. And I don't think that's correct. I don't think the a legendary Sara Lee made him a great player. I think he was probably great in spite of that. A lot of ways as you've seen with the Tom Brady's the Tim Duncan's the world but it's interesting that we got to look days psychology that he believed that the most emotionally raw moment of the documentary was him sort of confirming that as he broke down in tears. That was the best part of my favorite moment of the die in and go back to what the coverage I have consumed in what I have seen his criticism like there's nothing really near Jordan personalized and that in and I get that one level it's about the nineteen ninety seven ninety eight bold but like that moment where you're actually seeing Jordan. Be Emotional especially after you know curse what we also have new to hear from his own team. It was interesting occurs like you just couldn't connect with your not emotional level to see that emotion like we definitely left you wanting more there. I mean that that to me was like that I think those that was the most compelling in the in the dock there was one other moments that really got into Jordan Psyche. That that was you know brilliant storytelling. I would have wanted more of that. Was they made reference to the point that during his NBA career? He basically was able to function with the level of mindfulness and living in the moment that made him immune from pressure because he was constantly. He said he never feared shot and he hadn't taken yet. Which in my mind is almost anti human nature. That's that's not something I can connect to it but seeing that something that's like we all strive for but that also brought up something that I've been thinking since the documentary finishes that he basically was able to live his entire life from age. Fourteen to thirty five in the moment in the present focusing on each game in demanding excellence from himself and from everyone around him because of this. Mindfulness this mentality but it almost seems like the moment he retired the moment that switch flipped and he didn't the ending that he necessarily wanted going for seven championship. He has been sort of living a meandering life. Living in the past. Since he's almost like the hyper form of Adad in Friday night lights sitting on the sideline a Miller lite with the state championship ring going. We get yourself one of the east to the players. They jog onto the field. I mean even yesterday. He couldn't resist on the last Davis Documentary. Chirping Hornets. Flair is being like yeah. Of course I could beat them one on one day. I wouldn't want to hurt their feelings. Yes yes I mean. I think it's a good point. It's like people always talk about how difficult it is not people but athletes talk about difficult transition that Second Act Ray and obviously it was difficult for Jordan. He twice once was probably. The baseball thing was different. But I think under tiring from the second bowl standing coming back to the wizards shut d like they. That just shows that obviously like any athlete. He was showing with that and to your point since he retired. It's been you know he hasn't been able to win really with the Hornets and so now it's all about how Cli- you know. Make that myth still rain in people's minds but I don't know the mindfulness thing is really interesting because yeah. I was sort of skeptical when they were talking about that. Because it's a nice thing to say. In retrospect in a lines it's constant with how he played obviously zoo so clutch. Just it didn't ring true to me. I don't move like I mean maybe I don't know I no to be MJ. And obviously it's like. He's a complete anomaly in in the human race but like it just seems so difficult and I wonder how much less mindful he would've been if he had social media right like 'cause because one thing I was going to say we were talking about earlier is like He. He's an all time team petty. Hurson right like now. We get on get on K. D. for getting on twitter and chirping at the trolls but like Jordan man. He's so petty like every little slight. He you know he talk about. That listing last night's episode. He would just he. He will motivate him to deal unbelievable things but like if us on twitter and you'd be single people who are saying. I don't know if he would have this this ability to be president or ignore the trolls What he'd be like for the twitter account I mean. He was a real life stark. He was going to every single person he could and telling them. I have this list. I'm GonNa Cross you off one by one until I get to my ultimate goal. I don't think that NJ can exist again. And that's one of the things that some interesting the discourse with him and Lebron and other athletes like the social a world that we live in. It's impossible imperfect. And part of the veneer of Michael Jordan was that he was perfect for so long and how we viewed him in that became real and then there was no imperfections in his on-court gate..

I'm the only person on the show that gasoline the house and we rented a Condo in Dan's building as our makeshift office and a huge fixture of our office in our day to day.

Ken shamrock matches and Ken. Shamrock was obviously a huge crossover star arguably the most famous mixed martial artists at the time but he jumped into the wwe at a time that they were building a lot of major stars. So if you join in a previous era he might have been top of the card type of guy but most of his career was spent in the mid card. Let's start at the beginning of the time line. I didn't really know this but I got myself familiar with Ken. Shamrock really started as a professional wrestler. And then the mixed martial arts career came that right yeah. A lot of people don't know that but Ken shamrock was a pro wrestler. I for for years and years like He. He had a significant experience starting back in the late eighties. He's I started getting trained under buzz. Sawyer a noted Madman in California That training consisted mostly of of handing buzz money and then does not showing up for the training session or asking Ken to stretch the other guys so they would not come back and he could just take their money so He he ended up getting real training for Nelson Royal in North Carolina. And he worked like a an honest to goodness kind of old school territory. There in North Carolina South Carolina and Georgia called South Atlantic pro wrestling era. Sodas Vince Torelli and later as Mr Wrestling so He had some experience in the business. What drew him to professional wrestling. Was he a fan from childhood? He had some degree of fan but actually so is his adopted. Father Bob Shamrock was was really big into pro wrestling and was kind of like a career pass. He picked out for for Ken. Ken was a guy who is kind of was drifting. You know he had these obvious physical capabilities But no real way to you know there wasn't a UFC or anything like that yet. So there wasn't really much you can do with it. Like he was a good junior college football player but he wasn't good enough to be a professional football player and he had some skill in amateur wrestling but he didn't have the technique or or the real background to compete at the Olympic Level. Although he went to the Olympic trials so he was this guy that had all these physical tools and and nothing to do with a bouncer at at at clubs and stuff like that so he was like a guy in his mid twenties was kind of drifting and and his dad was like new That Ken was the kind of Guy. Like if you didn't have something to focus on like he was he was going to be in jail or dead like sooner rather than later and and so it was his idea to kind of Push him into pro wrestling and and and he was a natural added. Everyone says I talked all the people from his original training classes. And and you know from the very beginning can can have it so ken professional wrestling journey then. Shortly thereafter takes him to Japan this promotion that he wrestles in Japan seems a bit crazy to me. Especially in the Modern Day. It's a combination of professional wrestling but real amateur fights like true fighting. A what can you tell me about this promotion? It sounds insane. Yeah so it started so he met Demon Lincoln who listeners probably know a stink over Malingco from WCW days In in in a guy whose family had been trained by Carl Gotcha was like the God of wrestling is what they call them. Japan and noted a tough guy wrestler. A real legit amateur been the Olympics and stuff like that and His disciples in Japan. wanted wrestling to to look like real fighting and and so they created something called the WF and it's these wrestling matches that if you if you watch them this is prior to UFC. So no one had seen this kind of stuff before. But you'll see stuff that looks really familiar to fans like there's a lot of submission holds and and and the same kind of striking C in C fights only. It's it's professional wrestling. So these guys are beating the crap out of each other But there are predetermined ending. So it's almost like a fight but you know who's GonNa win at the end so And for Ken like a lot of Pro Wrestler. Used to see this and be like. Oh I'm not. I don't WanNa do that. You know You know there was kind of a repulsion. It's the opposite of what wrestling is. Which is where you try to make something. Look like it hurts but it doesn't really hurt. this was all about like no. We're going to go out there and actually fight each other Most wrestlers are like no not for me. I can share. Mark was like how? How do I get into that? And so He found himself Very quickly You know the Japanese that were training in Florida with Karl. Gotch like immediately said recognized like of this guy is. This guy is what we need. You know he. He was born for this and You know within just a couple of months. He was on a plane to Japan. And and doing these wild matches in Tokyo now. What point does the UFC come in? Is it in Japan where he makes some contacts in the mixed martial arts game? How does this happen? Because that's where he really truly becomes a a known American sports. Are you know it all happened kind of at once so at at the same time right around when you have SI starting a couple of months before actually Some of the guys from this. Uw WRESTLING PROMOTION IN JAPAN. Decided that Wrestling where you try to make it look real. It wasn't good enough. And they created a new organization called pancras which is named after the Greek Pan creation which was the ancient Greeks kind of no holds barred fighting and their premise was pretty pretty simple. It's like what if what if we did pro wrestling. Only it was real so it's like all the rules are pro wrestling to include like rope breaks and stuff like that Might have been falls but you know it's pro wrestling. There's no punches to the head. You know that that rule remains you can use open hand strikes but but everything is supposed to be real and that and that launched a couple of months before the UFC and So you know. I guess they had sent like of Ken. Ufc put out like an open call for for fighters you know from various disciplines and he shared some of his tapes from these wrestling promotions and He got the invite and showed up to UFC one in Colorado honestly thinking that it was going to be like this kind of pro wrestling. That looks real but has predetermined endings and and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was actual fighting and then strap a rocket ship to him. He becomes a huge star. Obviously the rivalry with GRACIE MAKES THEM. A big time star. At what point does the wwe start putting feelers out to get? Ken shamrock. Who has now become a known celebrity really to come over back to his professional wrestling roots. So Brad Hart is the guy that was the first kind of pointed out Ken to to the. Wwe He he saw candidate at an event in in like this guy has a lot of potential but shamrock wasn't really interested in coming back to pro wrestling until The the short version of it is the the UFC started to collapse You know the politicians and cable companies all turned against the John McCain. The senator powerful senator was staunchly anti UFC and so Everywhere they would go. There would be all these legal challenges. Where like the you know the the state or the city would say. You're not allowed to do this here. And they'd be in court until like literally the day after the event trying to get the event approved and then These cable companies pulled them off pay per view. And Pretty soon the only place that you could get. Ufc as if you had like a satellite dish you know. It wasn't available on regular pay-per-view to to cable customers. They just wouldn't show it. And so that that subsequently meant that they didn't have any money to pay guy like Ken who was starting to get used to making a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year from this and so The money started drying up. And that's when when thinking like. Hey I I I need something else you know. I've got kids to feed and so that was kind of when he started thinking about pro wrestling again and was lucky enough to be coming in at a. Just the right time because You know there was the brewing war between WCW and WWF and so he was able to create a little bit of a a bidding war situation. The the Japanese promotion new Japan pro wrestling also was interested in bringing him in as the headliner For for their Tokyo Dome shows and so he was able to get a really good deal with WWF and then You know just like that. He was gone from UFC and and so there was a pro wrestler again so now Ken. Shamrock is in the van wwf. He has his pro wrestling roots. So it's not like this. We've seen sort of mixed results anytime. Someone comes from outside of professional wrestling into professional wrestling particularly in the locker room. How was he welcomed by the boys in the back? I talked to a bunch of them. And you do worry about that. Especially because he's kind of outsider coming into a significant position because like like you said He. He didn't become the main event guy but he became a significant guy. An upper mid card guy that was sometimes made event. So there's usually some some jealousy that comes along with that but Pretty much to a person you know can fit right in you. Know he was one of the boys The the night scene. Wwf At the time was was pretty wild and rambunctious and With drugs and women and Just general craziness and Ken fit right into that. And so He was pretty quickly just. He was one of the guys on the road and everybody seemed to to to like and respect them and welcome. This is where most in the audience are probably wishing if they hadn't already that dam was doing the interview because Dan would seize right on the the drugs partying the women and I'm still sort of interested in like the political dynamic work in the back but was it out of control the partying. I have to ask as sort of follow up on that once. You throw it out there on a laboratory property. Yeah so I mean there was wildness. I mean Ken was married but like he didn't seem to do that so He was famous even amongst wrestlers for his the amount of drugs you could take and the women he would he would be with like multiple women at a time pretty much every night. He fell in with At least your web who plays his sister on the programming Ryan shamrock so that that made A. That's a good two extra levels when when we when you're doing it with your sister even if it's your TV sister that's a little bit weird even for pro wrestling and so all that was going on and it ties into what you're talking about though because His Some of his his nighttime proclivities actually affected the way he was seeing politically in wrestling because He missed an event which is something you just don't do you. Basically Didn't didn't get up. One morning. Missed his flight That happens sometimes. And it's fine if you're going to like Chicago or New York. There's always another flight. They were going to to New Mexico and there was no other flight and can miss the show and So that He. He was kind of fairly quickly Known as as a bit of a maker With with the the powers that be in the back. Geez.

Although I mean let's be real you know have to be when you listen to our show and as you know mystery crate is made for the die hards. Hopefully you'll find this interview. Interesting David Gilmour of next. Gen meets is a lobbyist. He is presently lobbying DC for funding for his exotic meat companies. See we view things through our sports prison being sports fans and knowing that how affected sports ours probably at the front of many of our minds that and just the peril of not knowing. If we're going to be healthy or not and the financial straights. Okay maybe sports aren't at the front of your minds but I know what's near the back and that's exotic meat. Industry and David Gilmour joins us here on the mystery create interviewed by Dan. To tell you why you should care about these people that are being displaced right now. Not Getting small business loans really enjoy hearing this interview because how many of you have met a lobbyist. This is a first for me. So especially when. That's lobbying for such a peculiar thing in the middle of a pandemic so here is David Gilmour lobbyists extraordinary joining Dan Le Batard. Hope you enjoy it all right so you know. We're bouncing outside of sports every once in a while here because there are very few precious few sports going on right now. That aren't Korean baseball. And we've been pandemic heavy in some of the things that we're talking about daily but I couldn't believe this thing that I was reading about next. Gen Meets Lobbying Congress for a bailout package and you guys have had me recently siding with billionaires even though. I'm being sarcastic about feeling bad for the Warren Buffett's and Micky Arison and the Saudis you guys have gotten on me and here is a company next. Gen meets lobbying Congress for bailout because of course bat sales have plummeted since the pandemic started so allison has gotten in touch with their head. Lobbyist David Gilmour and I guess my first question is how how in good conscience can you ask for a bailout? Given everything that the world is enduring right now as a result of what happened with that. Meet to begin with now. First of all I to correct you. We don't know That this involved at all that's conjecture it could have happened but if there was one Infected bats and someone unfortunately took a bite of it. Well let's If you took a bite of a human being right now you would maybe just as bad off right. I mean disease travels in in Mammals. And so we don't concentrate on that the The possibility that a single bat in fact that a single human Lead to catastrophe. Well we prefer to concentrate on. Is that society? Especially American society is missing out on a whole branch of nutrition and delicacy and in that is the Bat Intended to meet its sustenance. It provides and by the way we can get to this later. If you wish there there are many many other animals that could provide nutrition. They're they're completely ignored in American dining. But Yes we we it next meets. We're we're concentrating on the bat and the neglect. It's been subjected to well. I didn't know that bat meat was a culinary thing until this to be honest with you I I guess I was ignorant. I did not think of people eating bat. This is a successful industry. This who who is buying a lot of bad product. Oh it's it's a global thing it's been established for hundreds of years you know before it was available. Commercially people dined on bats. Just as a regular way of having lunch or It wasn't a. I don't know if anything was considered a delicacy. Two hundred years ago are such things delicacy but Yes we in. America live in a sort of cocoon were not We're not open to. We do believe we did chicken beef and pork. Basically all Americans live on. And we don't we have blinders on its Let me give you an example. In in in Spain for instance there is a long Established eating A restaurant called the Komo's mercy Lagos. I'm pronouncing that correctly. They've been serving bad for about one. Hundred and fifty years David Gilmour as I said here on. Espn radio next. Gen Meets Lobbying Congress for a bailout package. Can you explain to me? What exactly? You're lobbying for David. Well we're I would like to say lobbying. I prefer to consider myself an advocate. And then I do it with a clear conscience because I believe in the nutritional value of bat meat and in the meantime it's not like eating your vegetables. You know it actually is a bit of a delicacy. It's the you know the old saying is. It tastes like chicken. If one likes to say that about virtually everything and tastes like chicken. Well you know bad does taste a little bit like chicken and I I tried to say is sort of a slogan you know it tastes like chicken but with wings and then I quickly realized of course the chickens also have wings and so. That wasn't going to work so I changed it to. It tastes like chicken but with ears and so far. No one has taken me up on. Wanted to use that as a slogan. But I'm just trying to get the ball rolling. You know it's just something that obviously the bats meat suppliers are struggling right now. Because we've got a little bit of a PR crisis you know nutritional value though what is the nutritional value of Bat. Well about the same as Say a mouse it's There's this protein. There's not a lot of meat on a bat as you can imagine. It was extruded her. However you would Explain how you remove the Matt. Meat from a bat a tablespoon full of meat so you need a Unless you just a quick snack a quick burst of energy. You know like if you're taking a break from your soccer game or something. Just take a quick. Oh Quick Nibble if you WANNA make a lot of it. You're you're talking but several if not dozens of bats But the nutritional value is right up there with any other meal so like Jerky like just protein. Yes funny you say that. Bad jerky is something that would try to get moving along. It's it's been around forever. You know people would hang hang bet meat in their cabin. Or what have you in as it dries Then you can store it for a long hike or something or if you forced to leave your village or you're being stalked by some Predator among thinking you know dinosaurs tigers. I don't know how long that Admiral Bats were around back then. I'm getting a little out of my lane but Yes Bat Jerky is a thing next. Gen meet are there other meats other than bat like I again? This is foreign to me. I'm a bit ignorant here so forgive my ignorance but I did not know that bat eating was a thing and next gen meets. Is it limited to bats or are there? Is there other exotic fair? I'm glad you asked me that it. It's there are several species of animals that have been neglected in terms of being looked to for nutrition and sustenance You with a lemur. Lemur is Oh God no yes there. Door -able lemurs adorable ring tailed lemur is one is one source will adorable yes. It's sort of cross machine a monkey in a raccoon. I would say sort of a kind of a stylish raccoon if you will but they're meat is is delicious and no one. Since you're you're right. They are sort of acute or a door and so we don't You know raise them to be slaughtered and turned into meat that that seems curls. The LEMUR meat that the next Gen mean Cells are lower. Lemurs that have passed on naturally emerge that have died of old age. If you will and down I that may sound unappetizing to some people But would you rather them be slaughtered as young? Lemurs or you know or slaughtered. As old. Lemurs again David Gilmour with us on. Espn radio a lobbyist here. Lobbying Congress for a bailout package for the selling of bats as a food for. Next Gen meets David Gilmour. Can you please explain to me? How in good conscience? I believe a lot of people listening to this would be wondering how it is that you can ignore sort of the science on. It's not conjecture when it comes to the Bat. Meet and how this started. Everything is viewed as conspiracy theories beyond the science. Are you saying that it's settled fact that this Corona virus came from the ingestion of Bat. Meat that is what I am saying. Yes I believe that is settled. Fact I don't think I have that wrong Okay well they're like okay. Look let's say that I accept your a bogus theory that it came from an actual gestion of bad meat. Well that happens sometimes. It doesn't if you eat. A bad Dented can of mushroom soup. You might get sick and and you don't do to call for the you know. Eradification of mushrooms is just a single case. That went wrong. If a if a horse bucks you off you don't return with a a machine gun and kill all the horses of I've wandered field here. I didn't mean to discuss killing hundreds of horses But you know what I'm saying a okay. Let's say that a bad a- bad bat though the one one bad apple in the barrel caused this Little problem we have here. Well that's going to.

"So. I kind of have enjoyed these interviews that we have done and I kind of haven't because they've gotten a little awkward with the eccentric former Southeast Tulsa strength and conditioning coach Tim Journeys If you haven't been following his journey it's an interesting one. It began doing an interview on our show about some questionable training techniques that he was doing during the pandemic eight nine one one calls. He ended up getting fired saying that. I took him out of context. And I was guilty of Gotcha Journalism. But he is asked to come back on the show because he is saying he's now got a success. Stories got a barnstorming football team.

We didn't lay a single person off and that was our plan. And that's what we hope to do. Now we're going. My Gosh. I actually might have to lay people off this morning. The lenders who are part of this program will start accepting applications once again. In fact there's a backlog of applications there could be as many as a million that just didn't get in in time everything in pretty timely manner It just wasn't good enough so those will likely be at the front of the line for a lot of these banks and we're expecting a lot more applications brand new applications from small business owners.

And they're trying to make sure that some of that money goes to the smallest of the small businesses folks who don't have relationships with banks already so that they can avoid some of the problems that they encountered the first time. Karbi didn't get US thirty five thousand dollar loan but roots hospitality. Group did the owner of Ruth. Chris Steakhouse reportedly got twenty million dollars from the P P P funding. We exit there. Was this really bad. Look early on right or small businesses. Were were struggling to get loans. They were like hey. I can't find a bank to help me out but then you had these big corporations getting millions of dollars. Is that still going to be happening with this program? So they hope not the way that the small business administration defines a small business for this program is anyone who employs five hundred or fewer employees. Now obviously that's a vast range you are mom and pop is just a couple of employees versus a huge business with four hundred ninety nine employees. You probably have a lot fewer resources at your disposal with lawyers. Accountants and one of the biggest disadvantages is we're not high receivables business and the other reason that those big businesses were able to get a piece of the action the first time around was because they could show that individual locations of their companies employed fewer than five hundred people. That's a high end steak house which you know is probably not open yet. We still are. So that's why you saw places like Ruth's Chris and shake shack huge publicly traded corporations. That can probably weather this storm better than a lot of businesses out there taking advantage of this program. How are we going to ensure that those small businesses the small restaurants cafes bars who did not get the money last time this time? Well as I said you know there are a million a million of these companies that did get it. That are very small working with the bank so this time around just before. The president signed the package into law. Small Business Administration put out new guidelines. If you pay back the loan right away you won't have liability to the SBA and treasury. They basically gave publicly traded companies until may seventh to give back any money that they were given the first time around saying that. When push comes to shove we all can agree that if you are a big enough to be a publicly traded company you just are not suffering to the same degree as the businesses that this program was intended to help. Okay so so then. Let's look at the business owners then if like really small businesses. Say I'M IN OKLAHOMA CITY? My governor said Hey. It's time to reopen. My mayor. Says I don't know it might be dangerous SUV owner. I'm thinking like Hey. I want my employees to be safe. I don't have a like a ton of guidance. Not Positive what the standards are here but knowing need the money coming in if these employees are going to have jobs anymore. So let's let's go but what do you do if you're worried about people's safety at your business there's so many unknowns out there eight we all are facing them right now. In small business owners are no different. You thought the toilet paper situation was crazy. Wait till three hundred million people WANNA haircut at the same time. There's a lot of concern out there. About what could happen if someone comes into your restaurant comes into your your retail store and ends up getting sick. Are you going to be liable? Could you be sued? The answer to that question is we're not sure and so that's a conversation that's happening right now. The top White House Economic Adviser Larry. Cudlow said on Friday. He doesn't think that small businesses should held liable if that were to happen and a lot of Republicans agree with him a lot of groups that represent these small businesses the Chamber of Commerce the National Federation of Independent Business. They're all pushing Congress to make sure that in the next round of funding and you can expect there's going to be an extra funding to keep this economy up and running that that's in the legislation and that small businesses are protected from that kind of liability in. We heard Democrats over the weekend. Sable now you're giving employers a free pass but you also heard kudlow say you know. Employees should have the right to work in a safe environment so the question will be as can you have it both ways here continuing to see how small businesses approach this.

"It's Monday April twenty seven and ready or not here come some of us. We start here this morning. Number of states are hanging. That open signed backup in their windows. A lot of the states are starting to open up have not yet reached their plateau. They are still surging. The who what where and the why we will break down the rules. And the risks time for small business loans two point. Oh there's a backlog of applications there could be as many as a million. The money starts flowing again today which changed for the people still on the waiting list. That's GONNA take more than disinfected to clean up mess. I was asking questions are cast Lee to reporters like you just to see what happened. How Will White House? Snafu is leading to bigger changes way down the road from ABC News. This is start here. I'm Brad Milkey. Hey hope you had a good weekend. I have a feeling where most of you were. You were home right unless maybe you're in Georgia. Have you been in contact with any person? Niners coated nineteen fourteen days. I trust my cell. Take the necessary. Precautious kicking safe. And that's what she does but as of today. That is not the only place where you can get your haircut or hit up. The Gym. More and more states are telling businesses. You can open your doors now. It depends on what kind of business you are. And what your elected leaders crucially it also depends. On how prolific cove in nineteen is being where you live just in Massachusetts? They added almost five thousand new positive test. Results nut also depends on customers and business owners. And what's going through their minds? Take the beaches of southern California this weekend. Open Orange County beaches packed with summer like crowds social distancing recommendations frequently being ignored. These people do not need to go to the beach but the dude who makes his living selling beach umbrellas. Will he relies on you wanting to go to the beach tattoos right. Very few people need tattoos but tell that the Tattoo artist. Who's rent is due at the end of this week? Governors will be empowered to tailor approach. That meets the diverse circumstances of their own states. Every state is very different at the White House has been very reluctant to make national borders at any kind of his pandemic and this week. You wonder if we're witnessing the beginning of a free for all when last we spoke to. Abc's chief National Correspondent Matt Gutman. He was in South Dakota. He spent the last several days driving across the South West. On kind of a reopening road trip up. What are you seeing Matt? Right now. I'm in Las Vegas Brad and what. I'm seeing a lot of uncertainty in this city. Especially there's a tremendous amount of that. Obviously you know you say. We rely on on people to want to go to the beach. Those beach umbrellas while an entire city. Here revolves around people coming to see the attractions here in Las Vegas. And obviously nobody's here and it's such a strange sight to see bicyclists down the strip. I mean you never see that and the commissioner here who's in charge of that part of the Strip says. Hey listen we cannot open up yet. The worst thing that could happen to the people I represent and to my family. Who's in business here is for us to reopen and then have to close again and starting. Today you're going to start to see states. Beginning to open up. Montana and Mississippi will allow retailers to operate with social distancing measures in place Mississippi Montana. Arkansas Tennessee restaurants will be allowed open at fifty percent capacity and others on the Bunny Hill. Right now the next step is a regular old green run. Quitting Colorado's reopening in skiing terms governor Poland's also gave more details as to how our transition from stay at home to see for at home will look in Wyoming. You can still go to pretty much any restaurant. You can buy books. And some of these places you'll be able to get a haircut Maybe somebody will be wearing a mask and gloves as they do it. It is my understanding that the state is offering such conditions at the state level as suggestions. They will not be suggestions in Oklahoma City and the issue is what opens and to what extent well and we do keep quantifying. What's happening here through healthcare? Right we talk about the mortality rates the infection rates. Do we have a sense numbers? Wise of how bad it is for the economy right now because I remember two thousand eight. We would never say the word. Depression right played around with the phrase great recession. But now you're starting to hear that D. Word comeback you know one of the things that Cova does. Is it attacks your entire system. It is a completely systemic virus and the parallel can be drawn to the economy as well. There is nothing that has not been horrifically affected by this virus from Texas to Miami. Thousands of food banks across the country are stepping up. Long lines like these seen nationwide. Even food banks right now are struggling to be able to feed. The people who are hungry just about groceries have spent my savings on groceries and the supply chain is struggling to get food to the grocery stores because people are getting sick in pork plants and beef plants and food processing all across the country. This is the biggest negative shock that our economy to me I think is ever seen. We're going to be looking. At an unemployment rate. That approaches rates that we saw during the Great Depression analysts are expecting depression. Era Types of joblessness that could breed a different kind of morbidity brought on by alcoholism and drug dependence on suicide rates. That could really change some of the demography of America as well. It's funny because it seems like a lot of this has to do with perception right because when everyone was telling us all to stay indoors. Everyone was united on this. It was easy enough for people to go. Yeah you know I gotta stay indoors but now that you actually got business. Saying Hey. I'm going to go belly up if you don't come in. And patronize my business. This week next week. You've got politicians saying hey we need these businesses to open up like scientists are still saying. The risk is there but all of a sudden. It doesn't take nearly as much to you and me out into the streets like we're all going. Stir crazy together right brad because once you break that threshold break the seal. Everybody says well this glorious thing able to go to a restaurant what a luxury yes. We're spaced out in one hundred and twenty-five square feet. But you know we're able to eat out on a table this other home table or takeout and the irony. Is that a lot of the states that are starting to open up have not yet reached their plateau. They are still surging statewide. We have a total of thirty six people in the hospital today. Now remember we're planning for five thousand places like South Dakota Wyoming Montana all across the West and California. The numbers are rising precipitously starting Friday proclamation by Colleen Mayor Richard Newton. Let's restaurants with Patios seat customers outside and even places like Texas. You're seeing mayors especially within the Fort. Worth area opening up faster and going beyond what the governors have stayed the State Department of licensing and regulation warns city proclamations. Do Not Supersede Governor. Greg Abbott's Executive Order Dallas Salon owner. Shelly Luther bound to remain open in defiance of state orders. Tearing up a citation receive. I could be used as an example or they'll go away or I don't know I'm not gonNA shut down the rate of spread given the factor. Right off I twenty five. How likely is it that you'll continue to have that zero rate? I don't think we will continue to other zero-rate I think that eventually will show up in our county. It's been a bunch of time at this hospital in Sioux Falls South Dakota and they have been preparing for a surge for seven or eight weeks. We ask them questions about their symptoms. I'm no matter whether therefore then they expect the search to hit sometime in early June late. May that means you're going to have people on ventilators through July maybe parts of August and by then the possible. Second wave of the virus could hit. They don't know how they're gonNA make it. So it's not just businesses hospitals the actual healthcare institutions upon which we depend to keep us healthy may not be able to cope and survive the economic shutdown. He's like that social construct. You mentioned like I look out for you. You look out for me. You wonder if we go into a second wave of this or if businesses have to shut down again and again if that social construct remains firm Matt Gutman in Vegas. Thank you thanks Brad.

"So I'm at weekly fifty dot com. And it's the word fifty not the number fifty. But that's my blog. And that's where you can find the most you'll get all the text. The text right up and you'll get the the photo in the audio commentary from that there's a link to go to YouTube, my YouTube channel is just weekly fifty. So I suppose if you Google YouTube weekly fifty to find that. There's also the my all my photos are hosted on flicker, actually. And if you talk about long-term, maybe one day, if I get enough Michael is not YouTube subscribers, but if I accidentally get enough YouTube subscribers then I would like to get a flicker pro membership and use YouTube income to pay for flicker pro very so that a long that's a goal, right? I do that. I think that's an attainable goal there. And so I my photos on flicker because it's a it's a great way you actually interviewed the gentleman from smug mug to Stor. Yeah. And I've been with flicker from like for ten years. Flickers awesome. I hope they never go away. And it sounds like they're just only gonna get better. Now that smug smug my bottom. Absolutely. And my photos are on flicker as well. So anything on weekly fifty is just pulling from my flicker, and it's just using the imbed code from flicker, and that helps with bandwidth on my blog too. So I don't have to get a Bill from my my blogging provider gives me I know all about that. Flicker can pay for that. It's it's it's okay, right. It's a catch twenty two having having a large amount of traffic and then paying for that draft. Now, I got to pay for it. I mentioned one of the thing that regarding the way in which weekly fifty helped me and ultra make this quick. I on a trip to Nebraska recently. I was I was driving along on this backwards. Back roads highway. No one else was there. And I saw the sun was setting. And I thought I'm going to pull over and take a picture that sunset, and I just sat there for about fifteen twenty minutes watching the sunset and just taking it all in and my I specifically had weekly fifty mind. And I thought I'm going to get a really good photo for my blog. And as a result, I got to experience a sunset amid western winter sunset like I haven't sat through in years, probably decades. And it was so cool that I forced myself to do that. And I would have never done that if it weren't for weekly fifty and I can look back at previous sunset photos. I've taken put on the blog and. The one I took earlier in January, which I think goes live on March twenty seventh. I can I can tell you. It's the best sunset photo I've ever taken. But it's probably not the best ones that photo I will ever take because there's always more sunset photos to take. And so having the blog has allowed me to have some experiences that I would never have had otherwise just because it's in the back of my mind, and I'll think wait a second. I gotta pull my bike over and take a picture this boombox on the side of the road because I've got weekly fifty. So it's it's been really cool to have that. And I hope other people would have that as well. If they start a similar project. It gives you a reason right. A reason for your photography versus you know, we put on Instagram and get a couple of comes up. You've added a couple of layers to that where it's education, it's inspiration. And it's an ongoing it's an ongoing project. So I think it's brilliant kudos men. Congratulations on on doing the fantastic. Like, I said, I'm stealing it from you. I will credit you. I'm going to do this. I'm doing a weekly something. I don't know what it's going to be. This is great. So. Okay. So we'll Simon rings. Thank you so much for coming on. I appreciate your time. I'm inspired. And I'm excited to get started. So we'll leave it there. So you have a you have a good evening. And I'm looking forward to your next posts on the weekly. I appreciate being on Frederick. Thank you very much. You're welcome. Okay. Take baker..

"More can I learn about photography, and no special skills are required to do any of this. Which is why I think it's it's the type of project at anyone could really do and benefit from I agree in. But the the last question I'll throw at you is a curveball. So get rid of breaches we go. It's not really capable. But so you're you've been doing this for six years you're going to continue what what does the in game? Look like or or is the journey the destination. You know, is is Simon ring smooth going to become a professional photographer in your holy grail is to be shooting in a New York studio with any liebowitz or are using happy like continuing, and, you know, adding a brick to the wall every week. So my endgame my my long game actually is when I retire. I'm thirty. I turned thirty nine next week when I retire. I want to have built up enough photography clients and experience that I can ease into that. And I'm talking like twenty twenty five years from now that's a long game something my wife, and I seriously talk about where our kids are in elementary school. And over time we'd like to build up enough word of mouth where when they're in high school people are coming to us for their senior photos on a regular basis, and then our kids won't need as much of our attention daily. And we can we can take some of the time that we spend kind of micro managing our kids because they're so young we won't need that as much, but Lee, but we still want to be involved in their lives and photography would hopefully be a good way to do that. And the weekly having weekly fifty is a way for me to continue to sustain that interest. Sure. We'll go through dry spell's where I don't get any clients. Which is fine because that's not the point of Stevens creek photography. We don't I make like three hundred bucks a year off that but weekly fifty keeps my photography skills sharpened. And if I've been maintaining that just like the photo of the infant, then I I'm sort of ready to meet that challenge of taking on more clients and doing more actual paid work. You're keeping your keeping the blade nice and sharp. So that whenever you can you can use it. Well, we sort of buried the lead here in terms of you know, where people can go to see this body of work that you're building. So fills in on that if people if people want to see the weekly fifty where are you on where's the blog located in the name of the YouTube channel and all that stuff?.
