Hendrick Motorsports Nears Petty Win Record After 1-2-3-4 Result
"Hendrick motorsports the first one two three four finish for hendrick in its team history. Only the fourth time in cup history. That's been done in the first and the cup series since rosh benway racing team. You have some knowledge of two thousand five at the season finale at homestead miami speedway so just to give you a little context henrik has only been a four car team since two thousand and four so i one two three four finishing essentially seventeen years. I that they've been able to do that but you know what's your first reaction to that. When you hear the hendrick motorsports for the first time ever in what thirty. Seven years of history has a one two three four finish. Well i think about is two years ago when we were talking about. What's wrong with hendrick right. And we we. We had this expectation level of hendrik. That's pretty high. We expect to see them contending for championships winning the lottery to me to me. In the era that i raced in hendrick was the most dominant team out there and that faded faded over time and it was. They didn't jump right back into it. They had to work themselves back into it. And now here they are and they also invested you. Think about what they did. They invested in a lot of youth right so took brought a lot of young drivers and that has cultivated into a very young team with a lot of winners on it heading into right direction. This is the opposite of what we were talking about. Two years ago. I think hendrick motorsports is repositioning themselves to be dominant force. They won the championship last year. We chase elliott now chase elliott. That hasn't wanna raise this year and alex bowman's want to i know chase elliott fans. Think well that's not good but it is good if the guy that won championship you last year is the guy. That's not winning this year and everybody else has stepped it up. That's a good thing. Now they've chase elliott rezoning twentieth every weekend. That what that's not chase elliott's running okay. He's not been winning expecting to do. But but that's a good problem for a team to have. It's almost impossible to have all four clicking. You know what i mean. It's really really difficult. But i just i just i think a reversal of where we were two years ago. That's the first thing that pops in my brain

Investigators says rob kentucky is a former top cybersecurity as to president obama. They will be doing everything they could to understand what happened. And then they would rapidly sharing that information with other airlines so those airlines could prevent the same thing from happening to that. That's not at all what's happening with this pipeline incident instead. It's a volunteer system of protecting data and sharing information. There are no government mandates or fines just recommendations in the bill in congress would keep it that way thing is a recent survey of pipeline companies. Found that just eight percent actively share information with the rest of the industry and the government that's a woefully low number indie lee at the law firm jones walker. Did this survey.

Into hollywood i don't wanna say into normalcy because none of this is normal but just even the ability to be able to go on a podcast. Which would have never happened interesting.

The interview with oprah the new show us with over coming out about mental. Health carpool karaoke. He did the normalcy of him. Is it just catches me off guard every single time and obviously his life whether it was a royal life or in. La life is not normal by any means. But there's just something about what he's saying and the way he speaks and the references he makes and the things. He's aware of in terms of media and entertainment. It just catches me off guard. Because i don't expect him to be aware of any of those things when you think of prince harry in the lifestyle that he's lived. And what your view of the royals are you. Expect that all of these funny references that he makes talking about joe rogan talking about when he was games courtney new the fresh prince of bel air themes on you expect these things to be things that are just go over his head entirely because he wouldn't be aware of them and so for him to be talking about these things in such a normal way was my biggest takeaway from the whole interview.

The iris just tells them you return is being processed. With no other information, no information. Why? No, it's always tempting to blame things on your kids. But this time the delay really could be due to McConnell's daughter, Maggie. Well since Maggie was born in January. Of 2020. The Iris didn't know about her. So McConnell claimed Maggie's Cove, it relief payments on their 2020 taxes that may have put them in that backlog of 30 million returns. Aaron Collins is the I.

"last year" Discussed on Your Gardening Questions
"We also had a question this week. From april and april's says i kept the hanging baskets that we used from last year. They're still full of potting soil. Is there any reason. I can't save that soil and use it again. Well now. I'm going to give you a couple of answers. Shirt that the growers in the greenhouses would not dare do it because of disease carryover and cetera but the homeowner is probably buying good clean plants in the first place. The odds on that soil having picked up enough fungal disease or other trauma. are pretty small in that one year now The briesen those baskets grew well last year because they were not full of garden soil. They were full of potting soil. Yeah all kinds of organic matter plus fillers and so on the odds are because there is degeneration. Well bacteria and fungi. Eat that stuff so to speak. There will be a matter of reason to add new potting soil not garden soil. I would think that for one year carryover. Yes then if you're gambler enough in terms of most plans you probably use them for several years in a row so there's no reason to throw him out the basket itself would be good if you want to. I'd say go for it. There is risk. But i know what they cost. I know i. I know that i have an excess other right now because i feel him the second year and then i keep them because i might need them again. Well my might need pile is way too big. Do you add a little at a little fresh with mixed up meals mark and i meant to to indicate that by some potting soil and add that to the old material. So you're going to use a hand trolley or what have you to go down in and and Loosen it up pretty much thoroughly. then you'll find. There is a degeneration in the a month. Now you will fluff it up a little bit but would still add to. I'm going to call it basket height of of totalmente material. The old and the new blended together. So that when you plant and you start to water that having been fluffed up we'll settle so that you're gonna have an inch well nearly an inch at the top later on..
PC Building with TheTerk, Techtuber Extraordinaire
"Building today, that's, it's a hard thing to get into today, mostly because I feel like the, the cost of Entry has really increased his past. You just, cuz I think who was it last year, it was the most amount of PC parts ever bought, wage across the whole globe. Something, something ridiculous like that. So four people out there who want to get it on a bill right now. What are some important things to know? So I'm actually working on the same video right now, I'm working on my GPU tier list and what's shocking is this deny had the research this going into the studio this time last year, you could build a $600. PC that could play Valerie. It could play Call of Duty. It could play Doom, Eternal All Above sixty, f p s at 1080p without breaking a sweat for $600, that same PC Today, costs anywhere between $900 and $1,100. So it's not in those are all really old parts, so it's like the shortages and stuff aren't impacting the production of those parts. It's just the demand is so huge, causing all those priced those parts to increase the wage price. So If if you're wanting to, it really just depends on what your budgets really going to be because if you really don't have a lot of scratch to build a PC to begin with, it might be worth, you know, waiting a couple more months. If not, you know, a year at this point. Because if you spend $600 today on a computer, that's not going to gain as much as you want it to game, it might be best to just took a, wait, it out, or see if you can find a good sale on a GPU or whatever. But it really just depends on what your game you're going to want to play. What your target frame rate is as well as what your resolution is because once you get those three things figured out, you can go on on a different page channels and different news outlets and find the types of components that fit those particular

"Absolute waste guys. Thank you very much having meal awesome. Thanks inside adam. Great catching up without him. I don't think there's anyone who had quite seems to have his knack and that's why he's had the success he's had clearly but his neck sort of synthesize the combination of big ideas with current events. Quite the same way yeah. He's sort of like the most macro on the macro people out there Definitely able to range across a bunch of different things. You know what. I was thinking when we were talking about this idea of corporations taking on more responsibility for social services. Did you ever read margaret. Atwood's Orix and creek. No tell me about it yeah. It's like a science fiction. Book in their social services are provided by companies. And from what. I remember everyone sort of you know instead of being loyal to a country. They're sort of loyal to their employer. Rely on them for protection and health care and food and things like that. So maybe that's the direction we're heading got read. I know i really do think there is a lot of there because i think know if you look at what the. Us government really delivered well in the last year it was clearly checks and writing checkbook to households but also writing checks to companies and also big checks to pharmaceutical companies. So that they would be able to safely or aggressively pursue the vaccination research. But then if you look at sort of like who i think performed well in terms of delivering. I do think that you know people say oh yeah amazon. A lot of people Particularly stay at home people who work from home and others would say that in terms of like performance companies like amazon and other large corporations did their jobs very well and you know i think also you know you think about like the political splits in this country like the increasing. I sort of like Alliance i would say between the republican party and not business per se but like small business specifically as the sort of like entity. That doesn't quite you know not didn't most small businesses did not quite thrive nearly as well as amazon lot of resentment among small businesses for the expanded unemployment insurance that the government delivered. And you could see. They're sort of like this. You know how this ended up splitting politically. But i think it's a really interesting thing to think about absolutely and the other thing. Is that chart that we were talking about at the very end. Show in pre pandemic. Gdp forecast that one just sort of summarizes the whole situation to me.

"Corporations executed their business extremely well. I mean if you look at the amazons of the world of the walmarts of the world at the grocery stores of the world in you know in a period of incredible sort of crisis and stressed to supply chains like there really weren't like massive shortages businesses manage to figure out a way to transition their workers to remote work very quickly. So you could sort of like imagine this nexus where we trust corporations for sort of governance of things and then the government supplies that cash so that we have the spending power in quintessentially even in the financial sector. This time the bank's were the program instance of that. But i completely agree that. The the the emergence of amazon as a defacto public service provider was was an extraordinary phenomenon. I guess the crucial thing is not romanticize. It right is the not to buy the cool right right And to recognize the extraordinary inequalities to operate within the organizations such there were hundreds of thousands of of work is put in various types of risk as a result of ability to shield them properly. And i think that's the crucial thing absolutely does not. There's no denying the efficacy of those organizations and many of us all of us on the school right now rely on that infrastructure for the normality the prevailed in in many of allies throughout last year and we stayed at home in are relatively comfortable accommodation. Gone without jobs based on an electric infrastructure because we have access to it whilst you know hold serve. Workers took the risks of surrounding us with the groceries that we needed and so on and so forth those qualities. I think were absolutely massive last year and they took on a visceral equality as from being an inequality of just stay status so income to being to being really immediate material reality of those have to take risks in those. Who don't those who those. You have incredibly comfortable setups. I've been more productive than ever impact. Because i stopped traveling and just sat at home in my comfortable domestic surroundings and cranked. And i was able to do that because those surroundings comfortable in my university went old functioning is normal. And i didn't have to scramble around like my my wife and her colleagues in the chapel sector to just kind of keep things going to make ends meet..

Nothing i anticipated about this crisis came right and i got everything wrong but one thing that i remember in particular that i was wrong about thinking back to The spring of last year was kind of like you know the. Us was still doing a horrendous job. seemingly testing front by this point didn't seem like there was much consensus on sort of out. Lockdowns mitigation strategies. Meanwhile the european Germany most of your seemed to be doing very well with suppression very well with Mitigation and to my thought. At the time i was like okay. Us is a mess in europe is going to suppress this. And not only that. They're going to finally like turn on the fiscal levers. In a way that we haven't seen and europe is really gonna come out of this outperforming. And i don't even know of like comparing different entities like this as useful but it hasn't been like sort of like clear. A europe shows the way that i kind of might have expected around this time last year. I think you're completely right. I did. I have the benefit of having spent a large part of my life in germany so on that basis i have to say. I was always skeptical about that first. Wave success story. Because i've seen off of local government administration in germany not to buy that notre who bought it at the time so i'm not surprised and its agreement reality that the mortality in europe is now is now higher than it was at its peak in march april. And it's a disaster. It's really a kind of reality story of your. If you're in regular contact with colleagues and friends in europe they are living there. Still living lockdown chaos.

"last year" Discussed on KUOW Newsroom
"It's the fourth consecutive year. It's gone up nationwide on a single night. Last january more than five hundred eighty thousand people were experiencing homelessness across the country. That's about the population of wyoming and homelessness is on the rise here in washington state as well. Kyw's kate walters is here to tell us more so let's start with the statewide picture. How did washington state compared to the rest of the country in twenty twenty so we saw some pretty significant increases here in washington state. We're actually the third largest estimated increase in homelessness in the nation with nearly twenty three thousand people Counted here on a single night in january and that means that the growth he outpaced the growth nationally so little bit concerning. I mean it it does seem like this is a situation where is are not deceiving us. There are more tents and other structures on our streets and this reflects reality. Yeah i mean we definitely saw the number go up here locally in twenty twenty The reality is though the numbers that we're seeing in this report from early. Two thousand twenty from the count that happened in january of loss. And so what. We're seeing right now. Hasn't even been quantified yet. That said you know. I do think from the people that i'm talking to. What i'm hearing is that they are all saying yes. The numbers seem to be rising. Yes what you're seeing lines up with the idea that that more people are experiencing homelessness in this area. Kate what do we know about why more people are becoming homeless here. Yeah that's a. that's a really good question. And you know. I asked a state official about that. And he basically said listen. We've been so preoccupied with the pandemic that haven't had the chance to do the kind of deep dive that they normally would on stuff like this so calling. Ah county. And saying hey. It looks like they were more people living on the streets there in twenty twenty What's going on. They just haven't had a chance to do those sorts of things what he did say though is that one pace of this is the fact that it's getting hotter and hotter for people on fixed incomes so You know think disability social security retirement things like that to afford housing and keep pace with rental prices and that's a contributing factor visual and rising. Rents is something that people here in king county in the seattle area are very familiar with How do things look here in our local area in two thousand twenty. Yeah definitely no stranger to rising rinse. The report shows that the king county area has the third largest population among major cities in the us. And that's behind only new york and la. That is alarming. Is that an increase from where we were before. I can understand why it would sound alarming. It's actually nothing new This area is ranked third in the us for multiple us now at least since two thousand fifteen I do want to give you a sense of the scope. Though because in in twenty twenty on a single night in the king county we counted roughly eleven thousand seven hundred people as harmless and on a single night in new york. That number was nearly seventy eight thousand and in. La was more than sixty three thousand so with third in the country in major us cities. But we're also magnitudes of difference when it comes to those two two cities above us kate. You've covered homelessness extensively in.

"How we unwind every night to put ourselves in a better recovery position a better state of mind subconsciously and unconsciously to clear the interference of all the fear that existed outside of us so that we could be what we wanted be an really utilized that desire to live to our potential to enjoy the consistent persistent pursuit of that which led me to the most important thing that we could do was to be president so the fourth daily practice was to allow everyone to be able to communicate in a new way as everyone went to the remote locations. I reminded them that one hundred percent of the things that we do. Now get done and that we would not alette effective communication or interference. Get in our way and so that we would simply ask ourselves. Can we do it now and if we could we would do it. And if we can't we would have a system a calendar that would communicate coordinating collaborate. Everybody together to the same efficient effective in statistically successful activities with the lens of productivity accessibility and gratitude to allow things to happen rapidly. Inaccurately we all prioritize the same because we had the same for previous daily practices of knowing are what knowing our who knowing how and knowing our while and then finally most importantly to achieve the success that historically has been achieved throughout times of crisis. I'm a student of history. The reason i study history is because human nature never changes there was margins of millionaires. To be made. There is significant. Opportunity be had historically every time we had a major crisis since the previous plag- over a hundred years ago there's been huge opportunities. More millionaires were made and i wanted to make sure that everyone had the correct values mindset heart set and execution do so utilizing gratitude forgiveness accountability and inspiration with these daily practices of knowing. You're what knowing you're who knowing your how annoying you're now but none of it works if you live in the realm of fear what historically has gotten in the way of the third of the people that are destroyed as victims or a third of the people that make no progress. What is the difference. between those. In the third that excel grow and expand even during times of crisis the fifth daily practice the practice of ending fear. We get in our own way understanding four steps. I was going to teach and implement and execute with my entire team to make sure that we all were identifying what we were afraid of. There's two things that most people are afraid of this primal fears which is feeding flight fight or the other effort that means procreate and their secondary fears which are less obvious the need to be right the need to be offended the need to be separate and bears appear anxious frustrated. Angry guilty resentful. All of these needs of the ego have cost us so much time ocean resources money and relationships especially during crisis when things get compressed when a lemon squeezed what comes out of the lemon. That's right lemon juice. Why because that's what's inside the lemon. I was going to make sure that we were squeezing the best of all of us and squeezing the best out of all of those who we wanted to empower to empower others. We were going to find that lemon juice and we were going to allow the best to come out of all of us by practicing ending fear by identifying what we're afraid of instead of resisting it fighting it going over it under it through it manipulating lying to cheating it selling it..

"It allows us to find the light the love and the lessons and everything forgiveness will give us peace and the only form of certainty in the pursuit of being able to forgive. The unforgivable and accountability would give us control of that mindset heart set and the conscious continuum by asking ourselves continually two questions. What did i do to attract this to myself in. What am i supposed to learn from. And if we implemented with gratitude forgiveness and accountability the five daily practices. We not only would be motivated every day to get up get up get started to get back started but we would live inspired inspired not only within the context of each other being in spirit but most importantly realizing that we are always connected regardless of what's happening outside of us to the greatest source of light love and lessons than ever existed that we would allow this unbelievable source of power light love and lessons to come through us for others. We would not be victims during this time and live in a world of not enough where everything happens to us in. We would live in the world of y me. We certainly won't live in the world of just enough in itself is scarce world where everything was for me to just collect all the toilet paper we could so nobody else would have it. It was just for no we are going to not only live in abundance in live in a world of more than enough but we were in empower others to empower others to do the same and so we decided to live by these five daily practices and we decided we would know are what personally experience giving and receiving every single day. We would ask ourselves. What do we want what we want to do what he would say. What do you think what are we going to believe. According to our collective values and we weren't going to be afraid of making mistakes we weren't going to be afraid of changing we weren't going to be afraid of humility of knowing what we don't know and then when we knew our what each day.

Johnny cash marvelous thing he did. Yeah tell me about that. Let's see here I can tell you that they grab like the top one half of one percents to take the test and they send you off to school and bloody mississippi to learn how to intercept morse code and then they ship you off mostly overseas in a minute. First assignment was the beautiful. Greek island of crete greece. Now went from there to southeast baseball called san vito dei nor mining. And then i decided it's time to go back to the the private sector people. I mean there You take all these highly intelligent people and you put them in a building with no windows for eight hours a day and they changed their sleep every four days Let's just say it makes for a pretty rowdy. Crowd engineer No i'm not. I'm i'm a certified redneck Little this little of that mostly I do some home repair. We talked before. I used to own a bicycle shop. In the woodland's. I train horses on the side and santa live living a semi retired yet. Working life do tap dancers. Drive you nuts trying. No they don't actually gone operator. I thought they might so to walk me through how that works. So you're sitting there are you. You're intercepting transmissions that are occurring and then decoding what is it well. There's another person does the decoding. They are an analyst. in fact i've retrained out of the the operator that's what they call the person that sits down with the radio with the headphones and yes Imagine if you will. Okay that you're on a a two way radio okay and you are in dallas and you're talking to a guy in love and i'm sitting down here in houston and basically what i'm doing is i'm tapping your line. That makes sense that a good pitcher. Yep okay and i give an example when i was sitting there in crete greece. I got woke up on christmas eve. Nineteen seventy nine I was stone cold drunk and the colonel woke me up and said you have to come to work because Another individual and i were working on what we call the target which was a radio station. on the northern border of afghanistan and i spent the next ninety six hours recording the aircraft that flew into invade afghanistan.

And he comes back to his room every night and radios back to or codes back to israel. What's going on with the syrian government. He made his way into the highest ranks of the syrian government. And you know there's his equipment and then when when they come and take him out the true story. Yeah i'm not running it for you to not gonna watch it anyway. You see his equipment and how he had done it and how they catch him is really interesting. I highly recommend this. It's called the spy. It's sasha baron cohen in a in a serious role but it is the israelis just have to be smarter. Because you're this little tiny country surrounded by a bunch of countries that all want to destroy you. You've just got to be smarter and more focused and more dedicated. You just you just do and Anyway it's really good. linda. Did i go to you already know okay. I'm sorry i thought i had go ahead.

I find that accepting defeat is part of ensuring it if something is important. You don't look at the odds of winning or losing. You just do it but when you think about.

"Shifted on not completely. Jumped radically. Mario Cooper now this is something I've talked to a lot about with connor. Live see one of our contributors have log on the boys. One of our front page writers Co host of the Star and Connor was the first person last year through the season to tweet something to the effect of. Me I remember it specifically, because I remember messaging him on our message Klein, and said Dude Watch out this because he tweeted something like. I think we're starting to see the Amari that Oakland complained about. It was up and down on the road and at home and etc, and I think a year ago a year ago, so June first two thousand, nine hundred. I think if you asked an cowboy's Fan Amari cooper was a top five receiver row like it was. It was Deandre Hopkins Michael Thomas and then people were arguing maybe Julio Jones and then Antonio Brown although granted that changed radically and then people were putting Amari Cooper, mix and I I think there are people now feel maris good, but he's just. He's just good. He's just Amari good, and that's okay, but I think that as many people are riding the Marias. A top five wide receiver train I think some did right when he got signed. His new deal, but I think that people have just kind of cooled off on that. I think. You know I just feel like. Some of the decision making that went into some of the games last year. I had nothing to do with the Mari. You just use a victim of of circumstances there and. You know because we saw his obvious talent more often than not so you know I'm willing to give him. You know the benefit of the doubt that you know the gangs. The plays the scenarios the situations where he wasn't as elite looking as as we see him other occasions you know I. I believe there were other external forces, variables or factors that contributed to that and. To his credit. He he goes with punches. He rolls he doesn't you know become irate? obviously irate. I mean I, think he. Hangs or whatever, but yeah you know? He's different in that one. Yeah, he you know he's A. He's a guy that you know is cultural and you know he'll do. What's asked of him, but. I'm not. I'm not here to say that. I think he's any less than what I thought. He was at his best so you. You haven't shifted much on the Mario. What shifted on to be clear I haven't really. These are the subjects that I are. These are the answer that I. Think will get the most based on the way. Twitter is and the way our comments are. But along those lines I also think a big change has happened regarding Michael Gallup in a good way. I think that a year ago. People Thought Oh. He's good, and maybe he'll be okay. You know what I mean and I think because a year ago, it was it was a Mari Mari. Mari you know what I mean. And I think this past year. Michael Gala really ballooned and really kind of blew up and so much to the point that so many people correctly in my mind said they would not give Michael Gallup in a trade to acquire Jamal Adams when that stuff was floating around. In, my point is I think a year ago. If you had said you can have Jamal Adams for Michael Gal. Every cowboys fan would have been like. Yeah, let's do it. You know what I mean, versus now I think it makes all the sense in the world is say not that because Michael Gallup is that good so I actually think that that might be the answer that the biggest change has happened in a positive direction on on behalf of Michael Gallup. I, think Michael Gallup yeah I mean he his evolution last year was dramatic and. You know I think. Maybe, some people go that route and I would probably agree there. I, mean you know Michael Gallup was I thought? Considered or perceived as good, but now I perceive him as better than good You know better than average and glad. He's a part of our team right now. The other thought I was having. was you know just thinking about? You know the cowboys and Jason Witten, and you know your dome this great answer a year ago I think if. People had said You know well. Jason Wooden is going to be wanting to and willing to play for the cowboys a second year. Yeah, because at this point, he already had come back, yeah! You know. And for us to think Oh, no know they're not gonNa Accept I. Mean to me. That's a huge mindset change on behalf of the cowboys and I. Don't know where that originates. If that's you know the coaching levels. Coaching staff, level or front office level, but nevertheless it's a change. It's dramatic change. For them to be willing to. Part ways with. Probably I mean you know there's a? There's a handful of people that that are kind of perceived or referred to as Mr Cobblers Bob Lillis. Kardashian's Mr County Yeah. I It's unbelievable that he's you know wanting to play football and wanted to play for Dallas and he. And Yeah exactly yeah I think that there. I think this is a great answer to the question but I think that there are actually two answers there. And I've talked about one of them a few times you on the podcast, and that one is the way cowboys fans jason, wooden because when you know, and it was so casual the way the news was, it was literally the Dallas Cowboys Twitter Account tweeted. A story Jason was returning, and it was like what it was wild and. Stuff like that happens. People are just kind of. Let's go you know what I mean like all the hype and stuff and that I I don't know of a player that has lost as much currency with cowboys fans as Jason, witten did last year I mean I'd rather put it that way and say. Fallen from grace I. Don't think he fell from grace. I Chris Rashard fell from grace, but I think they'll. Whitten lost a lot of currency and. He went from..

"However once upon a time, I literally had to aim like ninety degrees left. You know what I mean like it was that bad, and it always kind of felt like that was the cowboys right like they were just adjusting for the Garrett factor whatever you WanNa, call that however ninety degrees you know worked in this analogy and it takes work right. It takes work to straighten out your slice because you have to. You have to change your grip and you have to change. You know where you position the ball you have to. Be focused on flicking risk. You know you have to make sure you're switching your hips and all sorts of things and a lot of people don't WanNa put in the work and a lot of people say you know what I'll just left forever you know what I mean and it felt like to cowboys. We're going to aim left forever, but it's kind of impressive to see okay. We're willing to do the work to straighten this thing and I do think that that will be the most popular answer. I think I think a legitimate answer, but I don't think anyone will give it is actually somebody you named is Dak Prescott because I think a year ago. There was a lot of question about him. There was a lot of. He's the guy you know I know he's eligible for a deal, but the cowboys don't. Make Him. Go out and prove it the final year of his rookie deal. And he went out and proved, and this is a really divisive subject, a really divisive football subject for a lot of cowboys, fans, and just football fans in general I do think there are people and I've seen different people that tweeted us and stuff that I've said you know what a year ago I was not sold, but after what happened throughout the two, thousand, nine, hundred and season I'm all in I'm team Dak. Pay Him. Pay The man whatever the case it'd be i. do think that there was a big leap there for a lot of people. I also think that there was maybe a big leap or a big change. From people and look I I am not. Against any player getting paid I think every player should get paid as much as he possibly can. At the moment that they possibly can, but I think that there are a lot of people a year ago. Who Pays League? Zeke is the heartbeat of the offense that have now shifted to the running back. Don't matter club that is very popular on twitter and online and in football, culture, etc I think that I think the more people I guess. What I'm saying is things that Zeke is not replaceable, but that he is not irreplaceable when they may have thought that a year ago. True Point there in I follow that analogy I follow that logic. You know I follow that train of thought. And I would. Probably say that I'm you know I'm on that. Part of that not that I doubt it a DAX abilities last year. I thought he was good. You know each one of his years, maybe a sophomore. Year Had some questionable. You know things, but you know. There was a lot going on that year without when Zeke was suspended. The CHAZ Green Game. Yeah exactly so you know I mean again. You know it was a bad year. No matter how you look at it how you slice and dice it because there's obviously some things also when his way last year, so take the good with the bed, but no I. Mean I think that's a valid argument. I think that's a valid. Thought Process for the question you're asking. You have to forty nine was exciting, but that was just the primer this Saturday.

We are starting new month. almost half the year going by. This is technically, and there's a lot obviously up in the air. Do the cove in nineteen pandemic that our world is still dealing with? But in terms of normal off seasons, this is technically the last month without football because July brings training camp, and then you know you're set through February.

I mean we're supposed to. You know lots of soccer leagues or returning this month. The PJ tours returning this month the NBA's voting on a plane. Seemingly on Thursday it seems like the MLB and NHL kind of have their plans. I mean I know this you know. We're one day closer than we were yesterday, but it does feel like this is the closest we've been. Do the return of professional sports in some time. Well, you know I'm glad to hear that because you know just the couple of exhibitions that we've seen and golf and. Even some of the soccer leagues. Just yeah I mean you know it? It's fun to watch a NASCAR I mean you know. We talked about NASCAR earlier in the week and you know I think you know the American people you know we everyone. We like to see you know a good competitive spirit on on some type of level some type of activity and And I think that's what it's all about like i. told you also earlier this week i. was watching the American cornhole championships and you know if you sit down and watch dad, there's a lot of strategy. A lot of you know technical. You know thought process goes into that like in every other sport, so you know I mean hey I i. I'm ready to get back to some. You know good sports watching them, you know even if it's from from our living room and not be able to go there in person, so you know yeah, I'm really happy about that I think that sports have just ballooned over the last quarter century and feels you know were were so close. It feels like to gambling being legalized all over the country. That will open up. Some more opportunities for lack of a better word in the world is sports. There's so much data. There's so many analytics you know. There's so much information you can process on sports that. I know this was a week ago at this point, but there was something about the the match to that was just bare bones. Just. You know classic. You Know Hamburger fries type thing you know what I mean like. It was so nice to just enjoy sports and I think that we're all you know not only there, but have been there. And hopefully the NFL. Goes on as scheduled and training camp and everything will be its own thing and. It will be a very different year to say the least very different season. But on the subject of a year a lot can happen in a year. That's that's a line in. Rent Five, hundred, twenty, five, thousand, six hundred minutes, and I wanted to ask question as we celebrate the month of June starting and it has to do with the subject of year When you think about what a year ago today was in cowboys, world I don't even know what was happening on. June I twenty nineteen, but a lot has changed I. Mean Jason Garrett's no longer. The head coach you know. The cowboys have invested a defensive tackle right Kellyn more turned out to be pretty good. CD Liam is a cowboy, and so my question is simple. What have you changed your mind? On most over the course of the last year with regards to the Dallas Cowboys, and there are some things. Maybe that were reinforced it, and maybe that's your. Maybe it was just reinforced to a full hundred percent. But you know so. It doesn't have to be a complete one eighty. If that makes sense, I'm talking about what what has what needle has moved the most for you? In terms of the cowboys owner the course of the last year. Well I mean I. Am you know I guess? Maybe most people would guess this, but you know I guess it's the thing that Really resonates the most with me and that is. I do feel like you know more than ever now. Not that I've ever abandoned. Thought that the Cowboys Front Office. Had abandon the idea that you know. They really want to go out and win, but you know I think that you know. Some of the things they've done has really I think put an exclamation point on that approach you know, and it starts with the chain they made at the top with the Coaching Change and coaching. Changes that you know the the subsequent coach that's coming in. Yeah, exactly you know so so I think you know again. I don't WanNa be boring. That's probably what everybody else might have guessed, but I think it's. It's the one thing that you know over the past years. We always thought you know hey. You know this just isn't ever going to change. You know we're going to. Be! Coached by. Jason Garrett and Hopefully? He'll find the formula to win a super bowls, and but we all we all felt and thought that we needed that change and so it was good. You know to see that the cowboys front office. You, know finally swallow that pill and you know along with that. You know that they decided to invest you know. demarcus Lawrence decided to invest in Zeke and I think the only missing ingredient is. Is the DAX situation but. For me. It's just you know seeing a i. think what is what I would term. You know a very concise. Approach to you know, let's let's reset. And I think that's the word I'd like to use. Let's just reset. Regroup. Revisit what we've been doing and change what we think. Needs to be done for in order for us to. Stay on course of continuous improvement and That's the change that resonates the most with me and I'm glad to see it. You know we've we've talked about this been playing golf as of late and Peek behind the curtain here I have a wicked slice off the T- and it's not fun, and it actually haunts my dreams more often than not. But there there have been. It's been worse before. Let's let's be clear here for my my say there's been market improvement in that department..
"last year" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"Also back in the booth is Mr Jim Mendiola born or U2 and MERCI beaucoup. Mike kits. French month continues with a look at Elaine Benes last year at Marian based on a script by Elaine Rub agree. Lay The film tells the tale of three characters m. an ex as they wander the halls and grounds of a vast hotel in Marian bad. What are there relationships? What are they doing marion bad? How does this film take apart everything that we think we know about narrative storytelling will discuss all of these things and more as we go along again? This is one of those movies where I don't think we can spoil it for you. Likewise you may have a completely different interpretation of what we discuss. That's cool bro Sam. When was the first time you saw last year at Marian bed and what did you think probably about ten or so years ago and it was one of those films that I had heard about as being on that sort of unspoken list of classic films. You have to see but that might hurt your brain so I just instantly fell in love with it and it was one of the films that I think introduced me to kind of French cinema as a whole so it was kind of my mic gateway drug about you. Jim I saw Marion bad for the first time at Chicago's music box theatre in two thousand eight and it was with a Jonathan Rosenbaum talkback. I know he's deeply in love with this film but don't quite remember what was discussed during that talk back. I think because I was sort of struggling to process my first. Viewing of this film not At into my understanding I had fallen asleep a couple times because I think it's hypnotic rhythm and Oregon score almost invites it and it's almost Pavlovian for me as well because I'm a former Catholic who is dragged a church every Sunday so anything with that degree of organ music will automatically put me to sleep to say you know. It's gorgeous is an understatement. Say It's fascinating is equally an understatement. But it's to say it's a maddening at times is also an understatement. All that said I was. I was sort of doing this more consistent dive into modernist films at the time that I saw it flight. His his previous film aroma. More another favorite of mine Bergman's persona as well as Bergman's the silence. So I was kind of consuming all of these modernist techniques and ideas at the time but I still felt like it was this was maybe the most challenging of the ones. I saw around that in viewing actually watch this for the show. I had never seen it before. It was one lau. Yeah it was one that I had really wanted to see and was waiting for them to show it at the Detroit film theatre or have some sort of theatrical experience watching it because I really wanted that feeling of being locked in a room and having to pay full attention to this because I think the more attention you pay the more you get out of it but I will say that there are times where I feel like this has been presented to an audience as a puzzle and I'm not sure there's a solution one article I read about. This kept talking about people looking for key like an answer key to unlock this film. And I don't think that there is a key and I think if somebody comes up to you and says oh I know exactly what's going on in this and proceeds to pontificate to you all of the meanings of all the things. They're probably foolish. It so just be warned if that ever happens if you're at a cocktail party and someone wants to explain to you last year. Marian bad you might WanNa look the other way and just go up and refresh your drink or something. There were just slap them. It's almost like we are the character of X. constantly losing in the game of NAM which is a game that I still just don't understand I mean. I don't think you're supposed to walk away from the movie understanding how to play this game but having read the rules and understanding the general principle it just the way that it's the way it's set up in those shots it seems like he's just destined to lose like there's nothing he could do yet almost seems like he does not understand the rules. So he's just not really playing strategically. Yeah he's playing it in almost sort of a reactionary way. Why If you go first you'RE ALMOST DESTINED TO LOSE. It's like tic-tac-toe winning is not make sense. But I I also read that there are versions of. There's one version of a game where the object is to go last and then there's another version of the game where the where if you go last you lose who the hell knows. And they're not just playing them writer. They playing dominoes at one. Point as well yeah and their cards to I think those all are technically Nim just with different different objects that sort of distinguished by all those objects being raged in the same triangular fashion. This is one of the movies where we're not going to go through this point by point. We're not GONNA try to encapsulate the plot for you because sure I'm pretty darn sure. I think it's much better. If we talk about patterns know we've already talked about the game and that there's a game that comes back time and time again there are snatches of voice over that comeback. And even that voiceover seems to get repeated at times as if the movie were starting over. There is also certain shots that we're going to see we're going to see different motifs throughout this entire thing and I it would be better and more fulfilling for us to actually look at some of those things and just talk about that rather than try to say. Well this happens. This happens and this happens. I mean you can go in and watch US movie. The first time I watched this I did try to just put myself in a state where I was like. Okay I'm going to watch this as if this were a linear film which is a mistake but there is the idea. That film is unspoiled or in the old days it was unspoiled. Ling and I am there for a period of time. Sitting in a theater is sitting in front of a screen and so I'm undergoing time that way but then there is the way that time is being broken and splintered in the movie itself. So I'm trying to experience one way the first time and then trying to put it together in a more linear fashion the second time. I'm not sure if either one of them was really gratifying experience. But I'm going to not necessarily criticizes movie but I'm going to say it's not the easiest film in the world and it's not something that I'm going to go back to time and time again but it was a lot of fun watching the few times that I have watched it and maybe I'll watch I if if it does come to the Detroit Film Theatre. I would go and see it. I will probably revisit this. Maybe once every ten years to see how I react to it you have to understand. I think when you approach this film that it's not this sort of lighthearted linear narrative that I can't imagine anyone thinking. Oh Yes my one of my comfort. Movies is Marian Baden Throw it on. I just throw it on whenever I'm feeling bad. It's less about telling a story. And more about examining issues of desire and memory and identity and definitely those themes throughout runnings career. Although I think he he was a little more accessible most of the time than he is here. But that's definitely to me all about Ellen. Rub Gray who wrote the film and you know. I'm sure we'll talk about him more as we go along. But this whole idea of making you work. Really hard is true of all of his novels and a lot of his own films as well. It's like he doesn't want he doesn't want you to enjoy things. He wants you to think about the nature of film and storytelling and in a way that I really love but I understand why sometimes other people might find it punishing or incomprehensible. But it's just so beautiful here from what I understand. Have.
"last year" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"And so that kind of steers this where I wanted to talk about what I want to talk about today, I'm working on writing something for the site about all of the trades at the Cowboys pulled off over the last year two thousand eighteen off season. Then obviously, the Mari trade and their first trade Tony actually was for a fullback Keith Smith left. The team in free agency went to the Oakland Raiders to join up with rich Bassac GIO who joined Jon Gruden staff and in the Cowboys, Tony they said, okay, we lost our fullback. What are we going to do? Ours is planned for the raiders now, let's call the raiders up. Let's trade for one and the Cowboys traded a fifth round draft pick for Jimmy's Ola Wally and a six draft pick. So if you had to grade that. ABC if you wanna go all the way down to s I'm not gonna stop you. But what would you grade that trait? I mean, super sexy, I know getting fullbacks involved. Well, it's. I think that they wanna bring him in here to help protect and run some plays and getting more offense. I think the only really play I remember drop in that would be touchdown pass and kinda short armed it. But I guess when you look at what they gave up and what they got. I guess it was kind of a wash. I don't I don't really remember him. I mean, maybe on special teams made a contribution. But vividly. I really don't remember what what he did this year of which really would validate that or I guess you you could say something negative against the the trae. But there's not really substance air. So I don't know. I guess I've given see because the guy has a a contributor is when he's in there. I mean, he's you know, he's he's there for purpose on different opportunities and big, you know, big people formation. Yeah. I I don't I mean, I. I can't criticize it. But I can't say, hey, it was this great trade that the Cowboys made. Sure, I think for anyone listening. C- sounds harsh. But see is technically what like average Riley is technically like an average grade, you know, and so. When I was that was that stood for casino. That's what for. And so I think I would give the trade of c plus. And I haven't fully written everything out. So if you're listening to this, and then you read the article on the site, the grades might be a little bit different after a little bit more valuation. But at first glance, I think I'd give it a c plus Tony for a few reasons one because I think that it's about more than who all awhile is. But you know, landing a fullback or landing him specifically sort of felt like ankle weights for the Cowboys often just because they were so, you know, intent on doing things their way, and I feel like that move is a little bit emblematic of just that overall disposition. So there's that piece of it. There's the drop to your point. That's kind of only thing you remember, which certainly kind of sucks, but I give it a plus because the Cowboys sent that fifth round draft pick, and they got all the while in return, and they got a sixth round draft pick..
