"Today's topic is scrabble. US Avid. Word nerds have been using the a scrabble APP for many years now it's a great way to fill the time and challenge your mind as you deal with the stress of corona virus and zoom calls. My Mom who's eighty five years old with an incredible mind for words plays every day. Unfortunately despite America's urgent need for things to pass the time right now, the folks Hasbro decided to kill ea scrabble. For most people. It stopped working on June sixth.

I cost four dollars ninety nine cents a month to get rid of the ADS and get features that used to be free like seeing the best move that you missed. Sixty dollars a year is pretty steep. Second.

S C Dot Aro, the Internet scrabble club. It's a rush, but not everyone loves the stress of a countdown timer.
Getting Out Of Prison Sooner
"Alexis Nicholson, has this picture from when she was eight years old, so yeah, this picture means to me I've always had onto even though she's a piece of paper from chucky cheese. It's a picture from her eighth birthday party. There were a lot of people there, but this picture especial to Alexis because it's just her and her Dad Reggie there in a photo booth in their heads are up against each other smiling. Shaky cheese and I. don't really it's hard to talk about. Alexis is Reggie's only daughter. She's twenty five years old now, and she got this picture printed on a pink sweatshirt that she's wearing. I've always been a daddy's girl. You know what I mean so I've I've always been close to him? Even though he's always been far away, I guess you could say her. Dad was arrested not too long after that birthday party when he was just twenty five years old, according to transcripts, the police had shown up at Reggie's house in Oklahoma City because it's home. Burglary alarm had gone off Reggie wasn't home for it, but when he got there, his door was left, wide open and police were waiting outside. They had responded to the alarm. And Reggie told the cops they could go in look around, and while they were looking around, they found a shoebox with some drugs, money and a gun inside. And they arrested Reggie. I do remember when I got told. My grandma beats me up from school. And She was just like they got you. In I knew I knew she was talking to Bellboy at. Believe is so I asked her I said who I said WHO has she? The police do. The police found six hundred and thirty five grams of crack cocaine in the shoebox, which is a decent amount it would be like to soda worth of crack a little over a pound enough to be considered trafficking. This was in two thousand and three now. If you were caught with this exact amount of drugs today in Oklahoma. The most prison time you could get is twenty years so a long time. But the laws were much harsher back then, especially, because Reggie had been caught with drugs twice before, and that combination to drug convictions plus a trafficking conviction it carried one sentence and one sentence only the rest of your life at the trial. The prosecutor told the jury that life meant. They could give reggie a million years if they wanted. Mercy is for people who don't commit one crime. After another, the prosecutor said mercy he said is for the innocent. The jury gave Reggie Life in prison without the possibility of ever getting out, that was mandatory, but then the jury added another one, thousand, six hundred and fifty years after life, even though that's impossible, and even though he didn't do anything violent. For Lexus it was like she had to mourn. A living person is different from see somebody in a casket versus going to a prison in. You can't leave with the person that you WANNA. Leave with this breathing that the person has life. You know what I mean. This impossibly long sentence came out at a time when Democrats and Republicans were trying to top each other how tough they could be on crime especially on drugs, and even more especially on crack. They said someone like Reggie's should never come out but this. After seventeen years behind bars, reggie got the chance to do something. He never imagined he'd be able to. Your original Nicholson Nicholson Junior. Mr Nicholson. Could you give me your? Number please Sir Reggie got the chance to ask to be considered to be released from prison one day. Even though he was told, this would never be a possibility, but here he is before April board about to make his case. You recognize these folks. Asserts mom this. Magadan okay great they've this was in February. We were able to be there for this. For Reggie's parole hearing his whole family showed up off my dad. Also I didn't see this big back. That's my day her. For All in small conference room at a prison in Oklahoma City. Reggie's the only one appearing by video screen. Nicholson. Would you raise your right hand, please? Swear the testimony you will be before the board will be the true. This hearing was almost impossible to imagine twenty years ago and Reggie didn't get this opportunity because his case stood out. It didn't standout. Reggie dot before this board, because lawmaker said maybe we went too far, not just with Reggie with a lot of people.

How to Sell to Crack Into All the Government Spending
"I hope found this company called gump spin we help companies Celta government. We actually help. Government DO BUSINESS WITH COMPANIES. We kinda work on both sides of the street. I started my career in the DC area actually started my career as a civilian working for the navy so actually helped government process. Actually something unique. I actually helped sell F. Eighteen fighter jets two. Us Navy into some international Countries at that point really grew that experiencing to last twenty five years really helping again companies either. Sell the government or helping the governor of process extreme line Spent most of my career and currently of a suitable Proto virus time. You know we have been exploding. It certainly very hot topic while the money. The government's putting into spending by the only the only illumination spending more money here currently so we really the knicks just exploding less of a week. So what does government spend? Do exactly sure so a governor. We wish started many years ago. Ten years ago I had a prior company. We saw with the laptops. The police cars are sold to the government that was my most recent gates selling directly to the government and during that time for a of times you can sell the government. Sometimes the process doesn't make sense right. You're like why did he do man what happened but we found out. It's like the old saying years ago. Follow the money right and so what we started do. At the end of that company we started to gather the purchase orders from government agencies. Work with what we found as we started to gather that for our own company it was super insightful. So for example. Hey if you saw company work with a company nine. A few solid agency weren't company for nine straight year nine or ten straight years. The chances you're gonNA come in and displace them is really small. If you saw an agency use a new vendor every two years of a much better shot at that contract right makes total sense but we as outsiders. We don't know that when we were doing business so reason I'll tell you that would go spend started to do many many years ago. Is We gather all the purchase orders from government agencies? We GO GOVERNMENT TO EIGHT GOVERNMENT AGENCY GOVERNMENT AGENCY FEDERAL STATE LOCAL. Gather all their purchase orders. And we put in this online database or folks can query just like Google. You sell widgets you can go online. It's it's amazing you can see. Every government agency buys a widget. You could see who they're buying from and what they pay. It is eating in the world of kind of government sales. So that's where we started. We blossomed into a variety of things. But that's the core of what Gulf spend does super unique patented by US. Just amazing ride last several years at. And how do you process all those purchase orders and what form do you? GimMe GonNa pdf format or you can imagine. It's all over the map rights and there's ninety thousand plus government agencies. I would say like I'm in a room with people. Say Write Down Your name address. Telephone number social security number. You know some of the information if I asked ten people do what they all do it differently right at all someone ready to on the line somewhat stacking someone put their own over the Franchisee. Someone's issues dashes someone as a commander with ninety thousand government agencies. They all do it completely different. So one of the things that makes us turn and burn a proprietary piece of software. We get the foul from government agencies. They come in every format you name it from Seattle electronically try to obviously get digital. And so we have a piece of software similar to ingest that information it's able to Parse it out and then we put it up in our database with make aquarium on about twenty four hours. So it's it's a huge set of data. It's about you folks a sense. It's about two hundred fifty times the size of Wikipedia. So it's a normal database but that's the thing that makes churning Burns's piece of software in about ten years so I see from your history. You sold the company to lexis-nexis this sounds a lot like what Lexis nexis does for lawyers through. It's really interesting. That was some of the impotence of this solution so we were again. We were at the time selling the public safety agencies again. We have this mostly substance. They have a laptop car life. A ten point fifteen years ago. That was very very unique so we help that marketing. Kinda grow right prior to that kind of singing. Hey how does this data and make it more scalable? How DO WE HELP? More people use it because we were we kind of use it in our own functioning of our company. That's exactly what we're looking at the net lexus. Next model how they use the data and kind of use that insurance where the government market so very very announce

Stacey Abrams Spearheads Campaign Against Voter Suppression
"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm David green and I may tell Martin after the chaos of the Iowa caucuses there is new scrutiny about how the US conducts selections when you partisan voting rights group is focusing on elections in swing states this year it's called fair fight and it's led by Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams Abrams got a lot of national attention in two thousand eighteen after she lost a close race for governor in an election that was clouded by allegations of voter suppression here's an here's Debbie Elliot a few thousand volunteers are spending a Saturday morning in a hotel conference room in Macon Georgia for a boot camp of sorts on voter suppression good morning in everybody Hillary Holly is organizing director for fair fight action the group that's waging a campaign against voter suppression in the twenty twenty election we are walking into year that's going to be exciting little bit stressful we're gonna be working a lot participants call themselves democracy warriors people like whole worker of lane Morgan Johnson make every single cam Johnson is motivated to be here in part because her sister was removed from George's voter rolls under a mass purge of people who have not voted since two thousand twelve or responded to mailed notices from election officials Johnson thinks it's part of a broader strategy to curtail voting rights reducing their opposition don't wanna lose power I mean we're seeing that nation why it's depressing and that's why I'm just trying to be active in a way that I can my parents worked for civil rights in and we're not for going backwards this training is part of an effort launched by Georgia Democrats Stacey Abrams an African American woman who broke new ground in our two thousand eighteen campaign for governor she energized new democratic voters and lost by less than fifty five thousand votes in a largely Republican state there was a record turnout for a mid term election but also hours long waits at some polls election server security breaches and allegations that strict adherence on signature matches dampens participation Abrams says the defeat galvanized her to launch fair fight in the wake of the election my mission was to figure out what works could I do even if I didn't have the title of governor what what can I do to enhance to protect our democracy because the voting rights is the the pinnacle power in our country verified is training grassroots advocates lobbying for new election laws and arguing in federal court the George's election system is unconstitutional Abrams says long lines precinct closures and purging voter rolls are all barriers that disproportionately impact minority voters most of us understand voter suppression as the nineteen sixties images of Billy clubs and hoses and dogs barking aggressive interference but in the twenty first century voter suppression looks like administrative errors it looks like user error it looks like mistakes but it is just is intentional and just as insidious George's current secretary of state Republican Brad wraps and Parker acknowledges there were some problems because of the high turnout in two thousand eighteen but rejects the notion that cleaning up voter rolls is an attempt to gain partisan advantage no what we're trying to do is make sure that the you know Lexus are clean fair and accurate this is something that has been going on in Georgia long before Republicans were in charge in Georgia and courts have upheld the state's authority to purge the voter last after fair fight suit but other election related lawsuits are pending attorney Jack Evans is chairman of the Georgia chapter of the Republican National lawyers association Georgia is ground zero for election law Evans says the focus is here because Georgia is becoming competitive the reality is you know George's changing and there's a lot of transplants coming in from the west coast and the northeast and there's also changing demographics so I think it is time for Republicans to grow the tent but I definitely think it's woke up a lot of Republicans in Georgia now Abrams is expanding fair fight to reach in hopes of putting other states in play she recently traveled to Florida for a town hall with college students to talk about ways they could protect their vote for verifying voter registration for learning how to ask for a provisional ballot if you're turned away at the polls political scientist Andrea Glaspie of Emory University says there are a lot of national groups doing voting rights work but fair fight stands out because it's been able to use the energy around Abrams electoral defeat to try to reap benefits for other Democrats in this election cycle her story was compelling she got a lot of attention by being the first black woman to be nominated by a major party for gubernatorial seat and she was really smart and you know strike while the iron was hot in order to play that type of organization together fair fights political action committee is raising the millions of dollars including a five million dollar contribution from democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg and it's pumping some of that money into battle ground states early fair fight C. E. L. Lauren grow Largo says the idea is to beef up the democratic ground game around voting we're in the mission of making sure our full citizenry can vote we also happen to think that when all Americans are able to vote Democrats win she says they've invested more than a million dollars and sent dozens of staffers in eighteen states to ramp up democratic voting rights infrastructure things like establishing voter hot winds and creating voter protection teams to be in place for the primaries so they can prepare for the general election gathering information and data what is order struggle with when election administrator struggle with what support are they gonna need critics say fair fight is a vehicle for Stacey Abrams political aspirations Abrams counters that she's been doing civil rights work her entire career but acknowledges our interest in higher office including the presidency I see myself as a warrior for democracy but I'm also someone who has been training my entire life to do more as for this year's race Abrams hasn't endorsed any of the democratic presidential candidates but says show welcome a phone call from the eventual nominee when they're looking for a running mate Debbie Elliot NPR news

The Great NBA Heist: How One Man Stole Millions from the Sacramento Kings
"Fans are really familiar with the basketball side of an NBA team. You know the starting five. You probably do the general manager and the coach and then there's this parallel world in NBA Franchises. which is the business operations? Kevin Arnovitz writes about the NBA FOR ESPN NBA. Teams have senior vice president of human human resource and for the Sacramento Kings. That person is Stacey W- exit so August two thousand eighteen wags in his doing human resources stuff off for one. There's this document that executive who just left for the Miami Heat was supposed to leave behind schedule of commissions for sales reps but he forgotten to do so now she needed to dig into some files to find it so she opens up the file directory in it is a mess. She can't find in anything. There's no rhyme or reason dates or names of folders. She does find this one folder titled Turbo Tax. An inside is all kinds of just really weird stuff. There's a depreciation schedule for a golf cart in furniture at some beach house in southern California. None of this looks like anything anything that is Sacramento Kings business. And what's really weird is all of this stuff is associated with an entity. She has never heard of Wigs and looks over all this stuff and she just knows something here isn't right today the untold story of our high ranking. NBA Executive stole thirteen million dollars and almost got away with times. It's Tuesday November nineteenth this is espn presented by Dell small business. So Kevin You published your story today it starts with the Sacramento Kings Chief Revenue Officer. Who is this Guy Jeff? David is the chief Revenue Officer for the Sacramento Kings. And that's just a fancy name for the guy who deals with all the sponsorships right he's in charge of the naming rights to the arena. He's in charge of in arena. Sign Edge The practice facility sponsor and was is really well thought of in this space if you ask a bunch of business side people in the NBA. Hey you're the ten most likely people to become team presidents in the next ten years like Jeff Davids often on that list. What kind of guy was he? He was a California Bro. He was the consummate sales guy he would come into a Monday morning meeting and say let's close some phone numbers today in closing phone numbers. Jeff speak was let's close some seven-figure sponsorship deals was generally well liked as just in a abusive hug. It out kind of guy in the office. So it's an exciting time to be part of the Sacramento Kings. And he does something interesting he. He creates his own company Sacramento sports partners. Why does he do this? So we asked Jeff David what he says is that around around two thousand and eleven there was an NBA lockout and a lot of people. Really panic I mean the thing about a lockout is there's just not any revenue coming in everything's frozen and so I think a a lot of business affairs people in the NBA are just worried. Like what if I have to lose my job. Would I have to go do something else. So the Way Jeff David tells it is I created this thing because look I might need to do some consulting on the side. That's not what he does know. Jeff David starts to do something really interesting. Rather than billing sponsors answers that he gets to by signing edge in the arena through the traditional Sacramento Kings accounting he has them pay Sacramento sports partners. Which looks like if you're getting an invoice at this company that is just bought this linage? It seems perfectly appropriate. Seems like exactly the kind of entity you would pay if you're writing a check to the Sacramento Kings. UNBEKNOWNST to the company it's actually an entity owned by Jeff David that sounds like some subsidiary of the Sacramento Kings. How many retirement he did about three deals totaling a little around thirty thousand dollars to what happens next so it really starts ramping up? Two Thousand Fifteen. Two Thousand Sixteen in the Kings were moving from they're really old arena to this brand new sparkling downtown jewel box. He is the point person for the naming rights both for the Rena and the practice facility in the kings identify really David identifies to sponsors that are relatively local. One is golden one which is a credit union in California and the others. Kaiser Permanente healthcare provider Divider well-known in California kice negotiates a really good deal for both sides. I mean it's it's going to be one hundred ten million dollars over twenty years with golden old in one. They're going to have their name in lights. This is the biggest deal of Jeff. David's career and Kaiser Permanente is going to pay twenty eight million dollars over ten years to have their name on the practice facility ability. Everyone is thrilled is bosses are happy. The sponsors couldn't be happier especially golden one. Is this little credit union. They're gonNA have their name on an NBA arena. It's all really great. And then he gets creative. Has That for whatever reason David decides that he wants them for himself at a certain point. During that negotiation nation there was conversations golden one in the kings that look. If you guys ever need more cash up front were credit union. We can help. We can't keep cash on hand so whether it's finishing the arena or whatever we could possibly service Jeff David file that away and then in two thousand sixteen. After the deals completed he comes to golden one and says hey remember of those conversations. What if we did that would if you sent nine million dollars our way in an exchange will knock off some money off the later payments down in the deal? The old past two thousand twenty six down the road. Golden One couldn't be happier to help. They're thrilled with the partnership. And they wire nine million dollars to Sacramento remigio sports and then he does it again with another deal. Jeff David does something very similar with Kaiser Permanente the training facility naming sponsored Kaiser Permanente ten years twenty eight million dollars. It's now a lot of these deals. That teams do with these kinds of sponsors. They have what's called an escalator was just a fancy. See Way of saying that there's an inflationary adjustment each annual payment so jeff. David goes to Kaiser Permanent Day and says hey rather than put escalators for each of the payments. Why don't you just give us four point four million dollars up front and we'll go without escalators? Kaiser says absolutely that's absolutely fine. They send four point. Four million dollars to Sacramento's that's why partners so the has over thirteen million dollars from Kaiser and golden one teams biggest sponsors ever that get wired into his account for his own personal gain in the kings know nothing about how does no one else in the organization. have any idea that happening you. This was a question that kept getting me when I was trying to get to the bottom of the mystery and I asked Jeff David. I said you ever worried that you know on game nights when all the sponsors and the Mucky mucks are down on the floor for warm-ups and everybody socializing in the Lexus Club. That your boss wouldn't be talking to the head of Golden One Donna. Bland and and say hey thanks for floating us that my million dollars and David said it he never actually were one of the things he said is. It's sort of like Thanksgiving dinner with your family like when the sponsors interact and I was primarily the point person when they're interacting with kings officials. No one's talking about the transactional nature of your sponsorship assertion dealer your deal structure. It's almost uncouth and the truth of the matter is everybody trusted Jeff David why not he was the. NBA's consummate soccer dad. He was really really good at this job. Everybody was happy everybody was instilled with the Sacramento rising sort of spirit. That's down hollow cores being built up in here the parties responsible multiple Ford. Everybody was having a really good time and nobody was talking about the transactions at any point does he come close to getting caught. A really interesting thing happens so when it comes time for golden to make their first annual payment this is not the nine million upfront. This is just their first annual July first payment they actually send the annual payment. That's it's due to the Kings to Sacramento Sports Partners Jeff Davids entity. David has to explain. Like oh no no no. This was just the account. It was really for that nine million dollar construction auction money. Now let me you need to. I'M GONNA give this back to you and you're going to wire it to the actual kings account so nobody thinks anything of this and and you think about it. Airs Happen All the time again. Nobody was on alert that the lead sponsorship executive in
The East German punks who helped bring down the Berlin Wall
"Berlin Wall. Couldn't keep all Western culture out. And it couldn't keep old East berliners down inspired by the music born over the wall by radio radio stations in West Berlin. A spirited and resourceful punk rock scene flourished in the city's east to more author of burning down the House that's H. Cia. US punk rock revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall joins me to countdown his East German punk rock top five tim first of all before we stopped. Stop playing the songs. How did punk rock find? Its Way to East Germany. You could pick up western radio almost the entire country of Germany and so everybody talks about the first time they heard the pistols usually on KNBR forces radio or BBC and that was just a moment that changed people's lives. It was so different from anything that ever heard. NFL Ika switches me sore inside them. How soon did it take root the first hearings that people had of the sex pistols? So I'm guessing this is seventy six seventy seven. How quickly did jump the fence? The first punk in East Berlin was a fifteen year old. A girl who went by the name major and that was September nineteen seventy seven and within less than a year. She already had thirty five opened on her and she was labeled enemy of the state and in her case case. That led to constant attainments interrogation and despite that a senior rounder. They wait until she turned eighteen and they arrested or tried her put in jail offer year and Stacey prison and that she slept with what's called the Berlin fabled meaning that when she got out of prison they took her mmediately to a textile facility in the middle of nowhere and she was expected to work there for the next next five years. And be sort of politically rehabilitated. And would not see your family or friends. She ran away almost immediately. Back to East Berlin was rearrested put back and Stacey prison for eighteen months and then at the end of that term ex patriot. Meaning they to ship off the West Germany to Take care of problem. This first strike is called. MFS which is the determine initials for the Ministry for State Security which is the study by benkhaled nominal since from nineteen eighty to about four or five years after ground zero of companies Germany. You can kind of see how the Stasi on GonNa go for conquer. Well they also make a direct comparison between the dossier and Hitler's S S which did not overrule on an explicitly. Anti Fascist in the music was their tool that is just how they fought dictatorships of the music. Wasn't they weren't trying to be tickly. Artful I don't think it was all about the message. And whereas other activists groups had a more reformist approach let's change Environmental regulations are some of the legal system. The punks just said screw. The system was bringing down and that was a really powerful message especially for bringing you to their costs. One of the interesting things about normalises day ended ended up going to prison for almost two years for their lyrics in nineteen ninety-three and I think what happened to them. During that process shows why the scene became so important as far as being a significant it can force in the revolution. They constantly were offered to go to the West. When they're in jail the wooden really rather just go to the west and the member the kept saying no? We're GONNA stay here and fight because that was quite coleman wave dispensing with troublemakers. Wasn't yeah exactly but two punks mostly rejected that and they insisted that they can stay and fight. And I think that basically the big Goan in in a place like East Germany was what happens when you run afoul of the secret police. The Sasi and the punks did that experiment. And what they proved was in going through the jail terms going through the payments going through interogations the blacklisting from jobs in schools the conscription into army units specialising political reeducation and the fact that they came back and kept fighting. That was a game changing revelation. Because it showed that you could resist and survive and that's deal the resolve of a lot of the opposition minded people within the country in that in turn allowed the protest move out into the streets worker then snowball into the big mass protests that we know from eighty nine. Let's move along out to sean climate. At what point to divide join the revolution. They're very early. Bantu and there are unique because they come from a little farm town in the south of East Germany and end and yet they became if anything. It's not really a star type culture but there was closest star system. We're in the eastern or Pengzi. How big was it possible to get? I'm guessing terrifically it couldn't record you couldn't play except in churches and get on the radio so yeah it was very limited seen it first and everything had to be done very personally. So you couldn't do mail wasn't security consent flyers for shows. The phones weren't security. Couldn't call friends say you're doing a Gig so it all had to be done through what they call the whisper network person to person. We're doing a GIG. And he told that friend Ephron told another friend but by eighty three they were getting concerts in the thousands. And that's when the stuff you really crackdown but Shaun calm created in nineteen eighty-four after they had some the trouble with this dossier has resulted crackdown. They created the song called clue which means sort of like the tomboys the people that get beaten by the police and it has a line in there. We are the people. We are power and punks from Leipzig claim that that is the source of the chant. That became the sort of signature chant during the marches of eighty nine lexus. which was the people? The
'Jedi: Fallen Order' Shows That a Good Star Wars Game Doesn't Have to Be Original
"Talk about what might be my favorite game of the whole year star Star Wars Jedi fallen. I haven't walked back. He came in two three days ago and so game of the year hasn't finished it so he says journalist so I played it for about a week now and who ooh I love it David. Lexus Game Tomb Raider. It is a lot like tomb. Raider little uncharted and then apparently a little dark souls. But I wouldn't know. Oh will you like Neil and save at points so yes that's right yeah so it is very tomb raider but but I think it controls like more like an action game which looks kind of goofy over the shoulder and you're watching somebody play still bouncing around like an idiot but it makes sense for doing that but I also downs around like and and it's also because the only time you've watched well watched other people. Maybe yeah well mainly combat the Jevon driven around like an idiot probably okay Salmon Tina. You're both playing just. Nasim played it yet to hear how RPG like it is uh-huh this say it's very RPG. Excited I don't mean to derail I had heard was that has a really big really involved skill tree which I didn't know it has the skill tree that pretty much every game released. Okay this Asan's creed got it it's less RPG as isis greenhouse so it's like everything is RPG like in some way so it falls on the RPG scale somewhere. Yeah these are the distinctions. We need to make before twenty question. No that's one of the greatest things about it has all of these like little elements five different games and different genres and kind of come together in a cohesive way so excited it should decorate. Yeah we're actually recording this before a review goes up Dan Is Handling Review. I I don't know what's so I don't know what score is GonNa come down on but I know he's very very high on he's bullish on one thing I like about The the combat so far has been frustrating. Although I know you solve it when we were the three demo and you've got through a bunch of the stuff but right now it's like I'll have a group of enemies around me and it's actually like tough enough that I'm dying a lot. And I've had moments in Batman Arkham asylum. It like that but what I like about it is that while I'm doing that you are constantly deflecting shots being shot at you from faraway really really fun and I know so. It's because like the lasers are slower than bullets which is like the stupidest thing like me a human see the blazers. It's coming at me. I feel like really cool like doing it. But if that was really how lasers work that I could probably do that. They just slowing it down the human you but the jet I you in the game actually sees it much whole games running et exactly the just showing you what a Great Lakes game design challenge feel like lasers but be slow to deflect all the other game design challenge too. Is You have a lightsaber. That should be able to push through most anything but there's like really big pots into but other ones. Okay no the really big ones. You can't do all you can't through any walls and the game either Tori really great. Yeah you're always on the other side of like three like metal bars looking through it's like you and it has actually for sure they have you looking indication later you'll be able able to get through here like Metro and you know just melt bars you got but you are in Jeddah temple so maybe it's Anti Jetta made made from some metal. What's the DELOREAN's metal armor made out of? I don't know I just watched a whole episode about it. I can't tell you I love hearing how metro-wide Vania e it is or Metro chime specific measure prime which which the developers were up front about that multiple planets that are way more intricate. And you you know. Non Linear and and sort of loopy pathways than kind of expected that so an expected and cousteau metro prime was famous for this Big Three d map that you kind of see really needed needed to go or you haven't had been yet and it's really good and it was like feels like super futuristic and stuff this game has that Matt but I don't know if I'm like like if it's just like because it's less boxy unlike more organic. It's so hard to use for me right now but you say you wrap your mind. Map has a learning curve that was it was confusing at first. But now I'm used to it and I can I know. Ah If there's something on the map that I want to get to. I can usually get to it and you can. I love how the robot a BBDO sorry droid projects in math in real time. It's like in dead space when you have like your health package just like lights on your armor and there's a lot of stuff in this game really doing the work early beating the flashlight. That's true and that's also he's also your health bar on your back yes. It's so like dead space magnate and also a tip since beatty one is projecting your map in real time. It doesn't pause the game you can. It'll be a ten. Oh yeah the hard way giant rats around. Yeah don't look run for your life is i. Don't want any stories. Spoiler the rats kill you is your killer viciously. It's a big threat to a jet here right now is that are you. Is your character cool. I think so. He's likeable and it's not like super every other characters better. I mean he's just like he's like a pretty vanilla hero but it doesn't bother me. I will say this there are some really funny moments. I forget what it was. What was one of the early comments? Oh because he's a yeah exactly like they're like no trashes allowed here something and he makes a joke about how he's actually trash. So there's like these little funny cute goofy moments that he just didn't make him more likable. That's another thing that I've heard just around the office is that You know that doesn't come through in the trailers just seems like incredibly generic and I've heard this game has better writing in dialogue expected surprising to me and this is not a spoiler. He's just really young. So it's like all the characters that are interesting around him are adults and he just doesn't know a lot and doesn't do a lot because he's like a teenager so I think they they don't. They didn't do a good job of sabotaging that outside the game. Now that I'm in the game like oh he's just like his whole he's just a kid. Yeah I've come to a decision I'm GONNA play it that's good. I think you're going to be happy with their. I've been joking on scoop for weeks about how I don't play anything but that's just you know I wasn't interested in call of duty and wasn't interested. Trust in-depth stranding. So this is this is the one this is the woman.
Jump Racing Stars Return: Weekend Review
"Tracy hello welcome back to the show. Thank you having me back again. Your debut went condone an absolute storm. So no pressure no pressure no I loved it Alaska and so it's good to be getting back into the national hunt side of it at this time as well Have you been reading out much at Tom Georgia stable and have you any info for us. Yeah yeah that's it. Yeah the form is kicking in now as well broke. Because I mean it's well documented. Isn't it with Tom. Sources that they take take a little bit of warming up for the season but OC big guns are coming out now with at some available in black off. Yeah the WHO is going really well. So it's worth getting early in the mornings as mornings getting the leaker at the minutes are going and see yes bro Policy Hoses now into getting getting sits on the. Yeah as we see the frost in the morning and it's dark when we wake up early in the morning and it's getting during the evenings aren't stretching out like they used to but the great thing about it though is that we get to talk about jumps racing and a man who has so many fingers in in so many different pies and so access to so much information is at the races pundit. Mr Kevin Blake the award nominated Nominated Kevin Blake by the way. And if I said this earlier in the year if you don't win this year it's an absolute disgrace time was. has you sound confident. You're sounding confidence. Speech is better than that. Yeah thanks boy. Simon Rowlands also dominated from the racist dot com and rightly so at the races. Dot Com have got Microsoft for the jumps which Kevin has contributed to so to podcasts favorite. Toni Keenan and many others. There is some gold gold information there so highly. Recommend you check it. It'll come up on the at the races. Main page click into it info gold like therefore you speaking of let's look back at some of the highlights. The weekend we saw Nicky Henderson unleash some of his Cheltenham Festival hopes. There were two big races that to you his young guns running and they won but this a bit of question marks over both of them after their performances I would say. Let's start with Santini. We were recording on Mondays. This was yesterday the Virgin bit future stars into media chase at sandown. He just about beat now McGinty to be fair talk. His jeep brand. No SORTA racing was well back in thirty lengths behind winner if the bet three six five or whatever the hell it's called now Cup At sandown. What what did you make of this performance to start the season for Santini kitschy? Yeah it was. Laborious believes the mean Nicky Henderson came out himself and he's a very strict toolkit very nicky Henderson and he said himself you know he's the first one to say that it was is a bit of a struggle facade teeny and but everyone saw him before one hundred and he was he was pretty big weightwise in the PRELIMS US country down to post and I was in the shooter day so we got the full coverage of him and we had a Ken encore in. He rang up to preview the race. What he'd seen in paddock and he just said some teeny he said he? He is big and so naturally he's GonNa come on. Fritz and Nicky Henderson said himself that he's a really it difficult to gauge way. You all with him and he says he doesn't really do a tapa home so he does always need to run and he does always come among for it but he was just always behind the bridal luckily McGinty gave him the lead. Because I'd save Santini a hot to make his own running essay he would have been an idol out in front probably would have lost a few links at his at his fences so not reasonably. He's not going for the king. George now probably move based on His run in Felton noses lush. Da were finishing the. It's just. He's a big horse. He needs galloping. Track in Camden. I'm doing is just to shop for him. Say Rid of a blessing in disguise from a from that point of view but no we. Didn't he just in seconds. Let's talk about him briefly. I thought he ran blinder. I vote he had a sneaky chance going into it of Sierra Stuart Edmonds usage. You never have any fears. What so ever I? I'm out that they are going to be a shooting to perfect shen for that race. Either master trainer of course in terms of he feeds them to the heavens Today that he makes himself but he trains them really hard. So they're tough. They're always fit but they have a plenty enough energy and enthusiasm in them to go well so he runs on an absolute blind just being behind the bridal early on another one a and Tommy Bryan made really decisive move in just getting him up with the pace Properly make his mind evidence fences and forcing the issue and and baking his fitness toby source Santini country down to post and thought he have the fitness to a retention prevail over him. But he'll go to Welsh national on our which We will have a massive massive chance in that providing Yeah is his jumping still say as well which he had a little bit of an issue last last time Last season one hundred with fresh early on how to get Genieford Huntington very unseated Karen Gatherings at day. So he's an yeah. He's a really nice looking forward but yes I'm teeny is going to have to come on a lot. He's got approved himself. Invest Higher Rankings. So Santini is rory largs idea of the Gold Cup winner will come to my selection who has reappeared hidden very much disappointed already this season but this was his first our start. He's threes on Kev. Are we being overly harsh on Nikki source. Is it just a case of while he's come out in these one or would you look at this. This is a forerunner race. You should've known by further. Yeah and I'm pretty disappointed. SULFITE Very Labor which you wouldn't really expect it's an honor horses seasonal reappearance. They should be more exuberant than normal really under the seasonal return and he was very labor. It needed to be driven away from fences dances relatively early in the race and just made really hard work of hired to put a number on. What now McGinty did in Iran up to himself or was he was he just blow himself Out of his wallet. Because they're a monetary of the rest having raised the Gallup so very disappointing. Look you'd never judge a horse too harshly on on one. Go with again. The next day was if he shapes in in in any way similar fashion. IB reaching for cheek pieces or blinkers curse or something like that. Because I think he shaped like a horse that needed them there and you know. It's it's puzzling Nikki. Seemingly isn't considering the Christmas chasing Jason efforts down for him. If he doesn't want to go to the King George that would be the natural target for I think Nikki is a small bit allergic to go to Ireland anytime buyer the Punchestown unfestive which is Pity because you'd imagine the effort sound would play to his strengths. Why is that though because the the lexus chases aces used to be known? Now the Leopardstown Chris Denman came over for best mate. Came over for it. Pretty sure L.. Best mate got got beaten in it by the infamous for Salmon Salmon. Paul carberry celebration but it is the ideal race for him and yeah look. Nikki is tell them focused. It doesn't like to travel before it and I think that's ultimately it okay. Well let's take a look at some of the other horses reappeared who are second season chasers and this means that we have the opportunity to talk about this yet. The ladbrokes champion chase down royal was won by Roach. Respect is a real funnel podcast favorite mostly. Thanks to Kim Blake Cleanser Soba was well held back in seconds. The King George Winner Alpina so back in third. We'll talk about jockey bookings a little bit later on and then there was Delta work all the way back and forth. Who was my idea of the Gold Cup winner? I was really perplexed by this. Was this In your view Kate a real case of. It's very early in the season. Let's not panic or would you be a little bit worried. The cleanser Soba was beaten so easily the delta work was well held. Maybe we're not giving them respect to Russia respect. Yeah I royer I. I definitely think it's way too early for me to take any sorts of judgement entitled to send in a Kuna cools after the race. I mean it's been well documented over stars who their seasons pools horses will very much needed the Ron and you kind of thought the fact that Kandebow was making the journey over that he might Well have that fitness on his side. He may be a bit more focused on the fact they were going that way but I think he he shaped really well and You know I caridi wouldn't read too much into that and Yeah he's A. I think he's a really nice progressive. Who Still Use Yucca? Plenty enough it gives you everything folks on this end of the season at this stage. Now it's not for me to read too much into

is there anything out of Sessa die the why the trek plied that you can take in the Melbourne Cup look other than the fact that you are dandruff obviously going really well he's going to be fit we still have these trucks going apply to be honest it was quite wet on Saturday there's GonNa be some rain today on Monday and supposedly drawing we know it's a joint track but he's going to draw on add some confidence seem Flemington because what we saw on Saturday Dhabi is they used the entire tract I didn't just stick to the fence that didn't stick for the day in the middle like I'm Dan wide and we sold melody battle-winning Michael Grand and also fees impact and then towards the end of the day that I wish shifting off and leaving the fence about four horses of a gap to the inside running row also it was a great spread right across the track all wouldn't expect it to be too much I've got to get through it on Melbourne Cup Day and jockeys go to pick their best path so Jewish touched on it a little bit of inclement weather I think it'll just help Flemington because it's such a great draining track they've prepared these track for the full days play on Oregon it was really fair on Saturday more I'm really looking forward to catching up with the hall of fame trying to dive is he's got three runners in the Melbourne Cup and we're going to get him on the final on a little bit lighter so he won't be able to help some throughout the show today I'm looking forward to that is your task done well let let's go through all the runners one by one in Reis Book Order Starting With Number One cross candidate last year obviously a little bit more white penalty the she does a two-horse classy Ohio UCS V8's now with goodell from blue forever because of course Canis Ripa but that's last year that's irrelevant now you go to carry fifty seven and a half doing now you can get thirty two hundred Mehta's after one the Melvin copy he wants him otherwise he went to do boy I wanNA group to their he started two dollars fifty in this ledger most recent run looking Ren fourth I think back in that rice it was a little bit of a worrying run but he has the pay over a lot of these other international forces put it this way Celli police and absolutely gun he's done it before these horses this is done it before he can win the rice he's not my talk for everybody can definitely win the rice is to have been more helpful because I'm going to trust him at Flemington Lymington as a genuine style what we saw last year was that three year old northern hemisphere hemisphere foam come to the fore carried fifty two key allies he was the best background Gripe Gripe profile leading into that rice since then Josie mentioned you want my which was terrific winning out of the thirty two hundred meters so to me that look walk a whole studied improved to travel back tonight in and then he ran out of a full thousand meters he got one point nine links off stratovarius in gripe form rice in the Gold Cup with D. XP just let's be in front of him as well and then he wasn't far why beyond Stratovarius again in the goodwood and then Dayton full links I'll forgive him for that he's had a really good I think he's a better whole this year and net foam and those four runs within twelve months suggest that he's a bit holes that's fifty seven and a half the reason Gordon Moore top four is because I'm going to trust him as the genuine style in the rice think if you've got class law came you can come back drawing a good guy with fifty seven and a half get locked away and he's going to use he's that he's going to be more top four for those reasons I think we're going to see a bit of a patent horses that can win absolutely smell them cap so that is a big number one cross cannock came winless got the number to murder glass obviously after the barrier draw eight fifty six dollars fifty dining line on board came in as well Ken Wayne counting anyway any of that process of six dollars fifty Moran knowing nine dollars fifty but of a winning chance look he wanted to cool field cop I think the inside guy is the positive Damian line is absolutely able when he's a fantastic jockey there is concerns whether it gets thirty two hundred meters stay in that's probably the concern for the Japanese but I think the inside guy allows him to maybe get a bomb and just because up clued up if you can be with four hundred maters guy I've got no daddy can win the rice doubts on the coffee cupping teams if he had every opportunity to win that rice and still on the run high twenty four and a half twelve and a half so it wasn't sensational last four hundred dollars two hundred a pretty moderate Tampa he's got meaningful the Japan and as a guns I think sometimes we can fall into the brains of twenty four hundred a Coffee Cup win locked that didn't right off the roof in terms of figures that was he's I have a twenty four hundred proud of that he was a two-time winner I have a twenty two hundred police phones brain around the mall and a quarter so easy to to brilliant and is he wanted to he's best at fifty-six kilos against genuine thirty two hundred natal's GonNa be strong that you can trust at the end of the rice with that Madam on top four and now he gets the best run but he's going to need the bush guidance it'll suck up beyond side he can use that tune afoot but easy the brain Ho slot the Saudi thinks these talk horses that we've saying come through at the mall and a quarter and right really well and Hoy but just with the fifty six and not being tested beyond twenty four hundred meters of got that question macaroni happy to him on Kenny Win Not yes yes okay number three mass reality twenty six dollars at at the moment Frankie Dettori onboard can't win yes but I just don't know enough about the tone four one hundred twenty three matches up pretty well but time for one hundred twenty three fifty four and a half roy it up there I mean that's a fair wack he's the handicap has got a hold of him there's no doubting that he ran fifty alleged that cross Canada ran fourteen cross Canada Tudo is fifty Master Valley started fifteen does he can win but I've got him into bat twenty one twenty six dollars look I wouldn't be knocked over but he won't be my betting strategy is to he can he can running the top bite for show this horse because he's a genuine style and he's trolling barrier wine he gets a fifty five and a half and he's foolish stratovarius there's a lot of this

"I got pulled over for a driving while black and California. I had the windows up because he's a dark Florida's tints. And I got pulled over in LA and the police officer shoes, I roll the window down was shocked to see that. I looked like me. Asked about go asked. I asked probably semi were dark, and I said, oh, I just bought the car out of Florida. And he said Florida did you say, and I said, yeah. And he goes, all right. And that was it walked back to car how good back, but see I I gotta take it for ten in Utah. And I told him to the cars, Florida where ten is legal in the windows. And he said man, that's nice. He. We're going to do. I was going to go back to Utah fight it. Whether we should mention that I got pulled over last night. If it's I've been pulled over in. Here's like four years probably since I've got pulled over then got pulled over last night for allegedly doing eighty one to sixty five car the Bill in shorts. I'm trying to do the adventure. Hell acceptance car very recently. That'd be the second to last entry this lesson credence. Basic of maybe it's this joint thing. Let's talk about the engine the engineering behind this thing. Like, why is it? So good. So in the nineteen eighties. Lexus decided to throw a ton of money in a ton of resources and building. Literally, the best investment vehicle in the world. And they put I what I believe. In was I think it was over billion dollars at the time, which was the most money ever invested into a new vehicle. They really wanted to establish themselves in the marketplace with something spectacular. They had you know, all these crazy benchmarks and. They had their their production ethos with quality and how the factories of work and stuff that was really enviable five the Americans. And they pretty much just just came out swinging. And you know, my my father had one of these things in ninety two when it was new, and it was extraordinarily. I mean there was you know, nothing like it on the road. It's kind of hard to picture at the moment. But like even something as simple as like the center stack. We're like these gauges which I think are like five or six and on LED's, but it sort of back Backley ghosted almost invisible gauge cluster like that was super future shaded nineteen thousand nine hundred and the you may not know it now from this old one fund when these things were brand new they were they were basically silent. There was no engine noise. There was no wind noise. There was no road noise. It was silent. Almost the way that like was tesla silent was this the campaign with the champagne champagne, and they had you know for. Mostly the champagne glass pyramid on the trunk and those had the car on the hood, and the cardis brand, and you have nothing fell over Klein Sino took it up to one hundred and forty miles an hour. Yeah. Because part of what makes his engine so good is that some of the Technic read is offer competing like years ago. But basically like they took some of the research they had done on building IndyCar engines using I think more silica in the aluminum, and it makes when it heats up it's like a little bit slicker than engine with less silica. So that's part of why it's such a smooth engine just less friction if there's fiction, there's less we're on the rings and all those kinds of things, and it's probably why, you know, the engine's never been open, and we're not bring a ton of oil, you know, with blow by what? Yeah. Also, this being the sort of pinnacle of Toyota overbuilt nece, you think about the two JC was being built at basement to save time as this. Durability was was paramount to mean, even a camera of this period is likely to still be on the road. Yeah. Less knows Japanese cars like late eighties into early ninety. They spent tons of money on because the economy is doing so. Well, while in America, we're building like town cars and just doing lots of cocaine America was like we have all this money..

"With. Is not that bad. Like, if I think about how much it would cost to do that in a lot of other used cars. That's a lot of like, maybe like a perfectly maintained like used civic or something like gonna probably have to buy that car for six of four young considering cars worth exactly what I paid for it. Now, you know what? I mean the net loss of the car purchases zero hundred thousand miles is a lot trap city. Right. Most cars need a huge service at a hundred even civic does there's a lot of like oil and checkups at sixty. Yeah. Well, I don't think that we love in yelich straight. You still are going to have to do like bushings Gallia they'll break on hawks. Like, you know, and the the. Any most parts for this car or not not out of not out of control expensive? Most of the parts are pretty reasonable. Who's only been a couple parts where I was like, oh, come on really like well, someone also have met Washington rape. And they do on the dirt section where they drove it and Anton dirt. So I don't know maybe rally out Washington CD. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I guess it probably is third. It's meant Washington hill-climb. Yeah. That's not good for bushings. If you if you didn't bushings and shocks and drove in Florida where the roads are it would probably be good for several hundred thousand one. Remember what I voting which was from Florida. Yeah. When I bought it. There was spreaders in the coils. So the suspension L all LS four hundred they all look like the Hasas cut of Sagnol time, and that's actually normal which sort of one of my least favorite things, but I don't know if because the springs and shocks completely dead or because the guy before me wanted to change how looks but he actually put spreaders in the coils which held the coil spring open and raise the ride height like three inches. But like you you had like half a shock. Rear end drive, like just dry. Good super weird. Rod power tour. Oh, yeah. The two guys from Lexus. These two Lexus. Engineers says excellent Alexis logbook is to Lexus engineers did a bunch of maintenance on the car. I think they've put a new distinct new distributor alternator. I think they. Did a of service. But then they took it on the haw power toward the higher up our stickers. There are some great injuries in this rest. Stop advice. Just because the bathroom is very quiet. It doesn't mean you're alone. I met comedy. I think this is one that got the parents met there. I think their names were Matt actually that commented in the stall walls are low for glory whole situation being in the measure my commented what with another guy. And then there was another force. We ain't gonna find out. Neither. Minutes after the rest of they get pulled over for eighty four in an eighties on the cop. In thought they were smuggling drugs said if you're smuggling drugs, you don't put tags on your car. So good point got a warning totally good point..

"It's still like reasonably quiet. Yup. I mean window seals aren't great, and that's partially because they're old and partially because this car has real shanty peeling like Florida tins on it. And I think that the bad tint is worse than the the window seals. But frankly, I don't care. I mean, we're having a conversation normal volume, and it hit the moves the air around the car will I think they had some of the design language was meant to do that like it has a little fins right by the headlights. You know, I was like it's been for aero and channel air around the car. I totally wrong. To be making that up maybe that up. But it's a weird thing to see on a car. It's like why would it be there? You know, let's see things that work climate control works power sunroof windows doors. Locked small work power seat belt adjusters work, the sixties changer. That's in the second. Book box words tape deck. Only plays out of one side for some reason. True, but the FM AM FM radio CD player work the power attend does not really work. No. But it does still get he thinks it's just not up here. But after how many warnings from car wash operators that it was going to like get broken off in one hundred thousand miles and hasn't gone hasn't moved. Well, as durable all the windows work steering steering is reasonably tight, it is increasingly I my phone before didn't. The ride is pretty good. Although the Harsha does sack we have three people in it with in a law just came here. Like, you know, it definitely take more. She set as tools we want extra fluid from just in case because there's eating a third of a court every intermodal something like that. Yeah. So it doesn't really burn oil in the sense that like no it doesn't verbally because like the rings aren't bad like the valves aren't bad like it's not oil is not going into the combustion chamber and being bird. However oil is being leaked from a few different places. One of which I think is the valve covers which leaks onto the headers. And then it goes and that it smells like oil. It's a for for the life of his car with us gone with eating this much oil per this, many miles. Hey must be burning. And then last night, we're stopping the side of highway. We knows there's very light smoker. Coming out the front of the car headlights, smells like oil, and that's bad figured out. Although oil we're losing is not burning out the call out the engine. It's purring on the. Yes, it's from the exhaust with the outside of. Of being recycled before it goes the atmosphere. Yes. So you basically you basically have to add a half a quart of oil every other gas. Which is not that it's bad company miles around it. It's really not add like you could. Take off valve covers like it's nothing from three three places like just just three right? The left valve cover the right valve guy. And three year main seal, that's the bad the vast bad one. But that's the problem was not. Like, I'm usually dumb enough with this kind of stuff to know that I don't know better. Like, I'm usually tell me everything it needs. Now, you know what I mean? And so when they did the gearbox. They were like there's some areas they they told me that there were some areas that we could save costs. They didn't really specify what those areas work one of them as fucking turns out was by not replacing the rear main seal when you put the gearbox back on by creams. Ing b old shitty. Already leaking rear main seal because that's the hardest field whereas eighteen dollars while the thing was already out that could have been totally not a problem..

That's my fiance shoes, my girlfriend at the time like Hannah, we take a trip to Florida while you have to go to Florida because I bought a car expected to be terrible. You have to drive it five days home. He for nineteen hundred bucks, and you did drive. It all across the United States home. I did. And then you when you got here, and then it needs some stuff in the many things because this list of repairs is way too short. No. That's just that's I I think I don't even remember writing that that was probably just the first repair not up to date. That's probably correct us. Just the first repair. Before you picked it up and Dr car five hundred power steering, rack and poem eighty tires. Yeah. For your pads and labor who change the Dow's the first service. I then I mean, it's had many many services. The thing is the last owner that had it before me really treated badly. Like one of the owners put like seven hundred thousand miles on it like that guy probably treated really, well, but the guy after him or maybe even two guys after him was like how little money can I spend and still have this thing like wind around town. Yeah. So like the steering was like threes, e sloppy and sketchy and like the suspension was like falling apart. Like, there was no pushing laughed there was like all this crate, all this crazy shit. Like, yes, the engine is like never been opened original. Like, it's like sealed Belykh a bunch of the gearbox was like kinda like missing it wasn't missing shifts. Like, it it that thing that is doing that a lot worse you come off throttle. It shimmy is a little bit because Ronald aggressively does. Yeah. But like it was also like it would go to fourth gear.
