"People to vote more getting people to wear masks to get vaccinated all these things that as a society we have negotiated is a good thing we can use. These means as a way to get people to adopt behavior and for marketers. That's our job like at. Its very core our jobs to get people to move and what is telling us. Is that using culture as a vehicle to do that as a powerful means to make that happen. Hip hop culture is just one culture right and they're very very very many cultures. And if i were to implore the researchers is to look at evaluation legitimation as the social processes social contagion to see if these four rs stand up in different genres of music. There is a culture associated to like maybe country music for instance or look at other cultures of consumption to see if these things stand up because if they do which. I'm inclined to believe that they might if they do then empowers us all not just marketers to help socialize. Hope us negotiating construct. What is acceptable which means then our votes matter and we can make things like. Let's stop using recreationally using prescription drugs in our community. Hey let's get out there and vote or how about this. Getting an education is kind of cool right like l i. I grew up as a kid being called a bit of a nerd. I was a cool nerd. I will say that as the ferrall like nerd but like this kind of like i wasn't like wasn't a limit on the on the edge if you will but like being a smart kid in hip hop wasn't always considered cool. Being savvy. street savvy is but being like academically astute not so much but we can legitimate. That could jimmy voting where mass vaccinations objectification of women which the genre or the culture has long been been guilty of rica. Change all these things right adding that that is. It's an optimistic way of looking at it. But it's realist realistic. Considering what the research tells us what would you say to other people who might want to do. More research about hip hop and its impact on business. I say we need you. We need you and arguably say that. If i could do it you'll anybody can do. This all requires. I think is is disciplined. Curiosity time the curiosity will overcome the lack of discipline. Right the things that you've super-rich sedan it's like man. No one's ever said that before or man. I wonder why these things are the way they are men. Keep looking because what comes out of that not only helps us aggregate knowledge and dissemination of knowledge which were which meant to do as the academy but it it encourages inspires people to go all. That's kind of cool. I will look at this. little thing. to know is paying attention to write. And as we do more little things no one's paying attention to the alchemy of them. The aggregate lisi's these really big revelations that hopefully you know. Make the world a little bit better whether you're practitioner or someone living in it anything else that you wanna talk about.

"Demand delivery was the thing right and i was trying to pitch and raise money and everybody in my space had raised all this money and i thought we were gonna be out of business in a couple of years in a couple of months twelve months. I thought i was going to have twenty people without a job at that point. Now it'd be one hundred and forty which is takes get higher and i went in pitched and i was told. You need to demand delivery. Everybody's doing mental every. We will invest if you can do on the mental ever. Nobody's gonna wait a day to get their flowers. Like that is not the way the world is going and i went back and i did a financial model like sixteen different ways trying to figure out how to do on demand delivery and not have to charge. The minimum was forty six dollars locally for delivery to make it work. Wow yeah forty six. I mean we twenty twenty-five and it's like the biggest complaint we have. We still subsidize one point. Two million dollars in shipping rate. So i couldn't figure out how to make it work. And so i went back to that. The that vc firm. I won't mentioned here scope. And i said. I can't make it work. Do you have analysts. That are way smarter than me. That can tell me what. I'm doing wrong here. And they said to me. No that's your job to figure out how to make it work. Come back to us when you do. So i didn't and my gut was telling me like on demand delivery. Sounds like a nightmare. Having open in every major city do the same replicate the same thing which is so hard in one city over and over and over again. I can't do that. I'm gonna die. You know. And so i didn't do it and my gut told me the way to scale. This company is distribution centers. Those companies are no longer in business that we're doing it that way for a reason because my financial models didn't lie it. There's no way the unit economics work that way so. I think i'm so grateful that i didn't do that. Just so i could raise a couple of million dollars because we probably be out of business right now. Where i know. We need open distribution centers in a few key places to get to ninety nine percent of consumers out there instead of focusing on that one percent that live in major metro areas and one takeaway half from this.

Hating Your Body Is Solvable
"Is it important for the plus size community to be able to wear bikinis to be able to wear long story that fits. Why is that important number one. We deserve the same access to the same trends and things that everyone else so does baseline we deserve beautiful bikinis and laundry because everyone has it. And why shouldn't we. But beyond that. I think the bigger mission is to help people feel good in their bodies and we've been told historically as people that we should not feel good in our bodies that we should not show our skin that we shouldn't cover up and hide and be invisible and so a to swim. Soup is the most skinnier ever could probably going to be able to show in public and so that has to be an experience where you feel like you should be seen and should be accepted and should feel good in your skin so like because it also feels unattainable for a lot of us to quote unquote love our bodies all the time and even i definitely don't love my body every single day. I'm not obsessed with it. But it's more about kind of overcoming this culture that tells us we have to hate ourselves and constantly be on a weight loss journey. That's kind of a body. Productivity and fat positively is even more radical. Where in its. I say that ironically like it shouldn't be radical but the idea that you can accept and love your body even if it's fat which in our culture of course the word fat has been so stigmatized so associated with things like lisi or unhealthy or a million other things and so is really this idea. It's like no you can be fat and happy. You can be fat and beautiful. You could be fat and all these other amazing things and to really accept that. And learn that i think is kind of transformative idea and process to go through as somebody who has lived that experience

Explaining Assessment for Learning
"Can you explain what assessment for learning is and why it's important case mark. Let's start with you okay. So assessment for learning is the process of seeking and interpreting evidence for use by use of teacher and for us for learns to decide where learners are learning. Whether need to go and help us together. That's it. I'm an easy. What about you know. Of course i agree. What mark just said. But i think it is understanding that. It's what you make out of that information that you just get so. It's essentially if it just gabbing. Mesa is just assessment so the point is how are you going to use it and actually to help learners improve their learning. But that's assessment for learning and sarah. Can you add anything new to that. I completely agree with both mark. Lisi and i really like what what mark said about she thought about it myself is. It's just that having that understanding of of where you'll learn are currently Whether they need to be in how to get in there and for me. When i was training that was really nice way of thinking about assessments. Learning and has malaysia said the core. This isn't assessment. It's about improving using that to change your practice. Some how to make sure learning is to go. I was going to ask you actually. What was your first experience of assessment for learning when you were teach. Did you find it. Intimidating confusing. I found out. I found it off. Because i was trained in one thousand nine hundred fifty seven nine hundred ninety eight a mess when i bit of research came out from william in nine hundred ninety eight and so it was being presented. Something which was new and different. But actually it isn't it's it's completely integrated with what you would do in a productive classroom. We are trying to get your students to learn actively in my case it was. Actually i didn't because i was a teacher in brazil and unfortunately teacher. Training brazil's not good. So i think i learned what assessment for learning is actually quite late when i actually wasn't teaching anymore which is really unfortunate. So yeah i. I did have a lot of experience over so it was a big focus when i trained back in twenty ten And it was a really cool part of of my teacher. Training program I think quite early wh- on. I was quite intimidated by it. Even all these different strategies. And how do i fit them in. But i think as you become less of a novice teacher it does become more natural and you do start to think in that way it that that kind of the need to generate feedback from your learning says become part of of what. Eda percent nearly on delivery had to plan in all these opportunities doing so that would be all kind of reassuring advice to a new teacher. It will get better. Maybe a tiny bit confusing or intimidating. First but you will get used to it. I would agree
Examining The Diplomatic Deal Between Israel, United Arab Emirates
"Newly established diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates are having an effect. The U. A. E is welcoming thousands of Israelis President Trump's administration. Promoted these diplomatic ties as a historic breakthrough, which was true Israel had been isolated from many Arab nations for decades. Israel's leaders says the agreement proves that peace does not have to come at a cost. NPR's Daniel Estrin traveled to Dubai and the U. S a toe ask just what kind of peace is being promoted? It's not hard to spot Israeli tourists and devise busy gold market way. Silas are very noisy, and they understand us here. I feel no tour guide. Lisi is wearing a sequined shirt and a blue scarf around her strawberry red hair she poses for pictures with elaborate gold wedding garments in the window displays. Later, she'll ski at Dubai's famous indoor ski slope in Jordan. I don't know if I will feel like this Not in Egypt Way make fine here and next month I come again. Egypt and Jordan share a cold peace with Israel and most other Arab countries refuse relations with Israel, as long as Palestinians don't have independence, but the U A E. I gave Israelis what they have long sought. A sense of acceptance in the region were wanted in our country Don't feel wanted by the Arabs. And here they want me here. L a needs Ziegel Boy Wonder's Dubai Spice Market. With six friends, all elementary school teachers and Moratti's in the market are reluctant to speak on tape about their countries embrace of Israel, which is still controversial in the region. I asked the Israeli school teacher is this piece? I don't know if it's a real piece or not. I think that both countries have interest in this peace because we need them. They need us. The Israelis gain business opportunities. One Israeli I met, signed a deal to grow lettuce using pipes and the Emirati desert. And the Emma Ronnie's Get Israel's blessing to buy American made F 35 fighter jets, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco also normalized ties with Israel. And it was the U. S offering the incentives without concessions by Israel so long to watch a loom. Which alone middle. What's MMA Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoted the U A e deal as peace for peace instead of the old paradigm land for peace. He says It sets a precedent. Israel doesn't need to give up land to the Palestinians to win friends in the Arab world. But I Moratti's still want Palestinians on their side U A e ambassador to the U S. You said fellow Taipeh. We still want to see a two state solution. We still want to see a negotiation between the two parties. Perhaps just perhaps we might be able to have more influence and more leverage when we do have a relationship with Israel. Emirati commentators say the love fest Israelis feel Just the honeymoon. Tough love will come later. But Israelis are seeing it more Netanyahu's way. Everybody by him from then a tourist to get just his first name to discuss his political views, says the Moratti's embrace proves Israel doesn't need to make sacrifices. Rather, it's the Palestinians who will feel pressured to follow their Arab brothers and make a deal with Israel. Even a prominent Israeli peace advocate returned from a trip to Dubai, saying, I think that the Palestinians need to rethink the way they treat Israel. Femi Paris The son of the late Israeli President Shimon Paris, runs the Paris Center for Peace that reaches out to Palestinians. He wants to promote business with the eh Moratti's and approach he wants Palestinians to adopt. I think Their point of view has being that's first sold the political issues and then we can start normalizing things and move forward. I think those days have gone. I believe that the only way for us to really, really achieve peace, comprehensive peace And save the region from backwardness is to focus on moving together forward. I put that to Nabil Shaath, adviser to the Palestinian president, He says. Palestinians can't just move forward and ignore their day to day realities is an occupying our land. Israel continues to Great second mints in our villages destroyed our houses. And yet It is legal had 23 is very better. Who is it? That should be doing what to whom the occupied the occupiers. Palestinians and many countries say real peace requires Israel to compromise land for peace. Shot says the U. A e deal removes the incentive for Israel to do that, Even if the Emirati say they'll keep pushing for it. There's radiated out of the problem, not us on the right.

"To underwriters. Corner your hope Bill for Lisi. Welcome back to the underwriters corner. If you've just tuned in, we have all of the loan officers of first preference mortgage sitting in their office there. 800 number is 3 to 1. 5555 again. They want no money from you. They they want no, There's no obligation on your part that they had just to answer your questions Get you started, whether you're looking to refinance and you have questions whether you should even refinance or if you're looking to get yourself prequalified. So you can start playing on the Internet and seeing what's out there. You need to get your ducks in order first, especially if you're trying to buy a house. You trying. You want to get you want to know that your credits Okay, and they will run your credit for you for free. They'll go through it with you. And by the way, because I get so many calls on this. It does not hurt your credit tohave a loan officer, run your credit once or twice in a month. It hurts your credit if you're going to run it 789 times in a month, and there's no reason to do that. But the loan officer needs your credit. So they need your credit score. They need to know what bills you have, and then they can talk to you into intelligently. And if you tell him a little bit about your income They can tell you what you would qualify for. They can tell you what the best program is. You know, some people want to get in as little money as possible, and there are programs to get in with zero money. Some people want to put down 20%. Some people want to go F h and put down only 3.5%. So let them tell you Then with that letter in your hand, they'll give you Ah letter saying that you're prequalified up to this amount of money. And it's all free. Tio. Let them work for you. Let them give you a pre qualification letter and okay, if they say you're approved for $350,000 under F. Okay. Now you can go on the Internet and look around in the area that you were looking before. I mean, you could you could get there. You could look at the whole house. They have, like 70 paint pictures on every house. And if you see one that grabs you can ride by it. And then if you want to see the inside of it, you at least know that you're prequalified for 350,000. And as long as that house is under You can go look at it. And if you want to put an offer in you can right there then on the spot because you also have the loan officer's name and cell phone number. And here's the thing about that. Honey, when you put a contract in you want to get a letter from the loan officer saying you're prequalified. OK, but if they say you're prequalified for 3 50 And you're putting in a new offer on the house for Let's say they're for 2 75. You're negotiating with the seller. You don't want the letter to say 3 50 You want the letter to say 2 75 so you can pick up the phone. Get a hold of your loan office because you have their cell phone number. And say, Hey, loan officer. This is the address. I'm gonna put an offer in on this house. 2 75. Can you give me a pre qualification letter in 345 minutes? They could email you a pre qualification letter so you can put it right on top of your contract. And you're letting the seller know that your offer is good. If they like your offer, they know that your offer is good because you have a letter from the loan officer in there. That's how you go out and buy a house. Get all your ducks in order and then go looking at houses. My producer is telling I getting another call. That's good. Somebody out there is listening to me. All right, Tim. Welcome to the other riders quarter. Third. I got a question here. Shoot the first time I'm buying right? I guess my last house iron wass. 12 years ago. Okay? Are you a veteran? Okay. God, I have to ask everyone because financing is the best around. But okay, So what's your question? I guess the question is it says his research. Is there. Like I know about one house. But is there Ah A limit. Can you do that? You can become a first time Homebuyer IQ and Oh, yeah, once you once you have Ah, you've purchased a house you no longer a first time Homebuyer. It's a very small amount that that the government gives you a transfer taxes and stamps. It's like, you know, depending on the size of the house, like you bought out the house for 2 50. You're talking about a difference of 4 500 bucks in closing costs, so they don't give you a lot as a first time Homebuyer. What? What size house you looking into? Well, uh ah. Taking a $200,000. Okay, Well, you have two choices unless you're putting down unless you're going to put down 20%, or at least 10%. Then you would go conventional. The only differences So when you go conventional, you have to have abetter credit score. Your credit score is gonna be over 7 40. Okay, That's it. You're going to put down 10 or 20%. And the reason you would go conventional is because the mortgage insurance is less now. If you put down 20%. There's no mortgage insurance at all. So that's the reason people go conventional if they're planning on putting down 10 or 20%. All right now, if you're not if you're looking to get into the house for his cheap as possible, and that's got a good send off. I want to talk about that real quick As I asked you A is the best financing around when you could buy a house for without a penny out of your pocket, no down payment. And the silicon pay. You can negotiate with the seller to pay your closing costs. That's VA. But there is another program that's very similar. Let me see if I can get that out real quick to you. This might interest you. In every Countess. This is called USDA Rural development. It's a government program that very few people know about, but it allows you to buy a house. Just like a veteran. No money down, So they give you if you buy a house for 200, we're going to give you the whole $200,000. And you can negotiate with the seller to pay your closing course. So, just like the veteran But there are two hoops you gotta jump through. Because you're not a veteran is not a loan. It's called rural development. USDA Rural development here the two hoops There's a limit. OK, there's an income limit, so it's not for somebody making three and $400,000 a year. But the income limits of pretty reasonable in some counties depends on the county that you're buying in. In some counties, you could make up to $140,000 and still qualify. So you have to first find out that that you qualify with the income. And the second thing is, you can't buy a house anywhere You want. Every county has a certain area. They want you to be one inch outside of the city limits. So if a county doesn't have a city in it, you know a big city. And you could buy a house anywhere in that county and use that USDA rural development no down payment and you can negotiate with the seller to pay your closing costs. Now, in some counties, that might be a city And only half the county would be eligible. And the way you find out is you could talk to a loan officer called the office They loan officers a role in there. They're 800 number is 3 to 1..

Has China Won? With Prof. Kishore Mahbubani
"Professor Shore Mahbubani welcome to the Model Majority podcast today my pleasure rejoin you. All right. So to get a conversation started, you know the focus of our interview today is your New Book Has China one, and there are a lot of things over to dive deep into with you on this book. The first thing I wanNA chat about is this notion of the Chinese civilization party as you know, very well, the as an acronym is sort around quite. Casually, in the media in foreign policy circle to describe China as a whole right the Chinese Communist Party and you believe that this is actually quite an inadequate framing to understand China as a country as a people and you believe that by thinking of the CCP as the Chinese civilization party is perhaps a better way to think about it. Why do you think this kind of change in terminology is helpful in helping the United States in particular understand China. I think it would make a huge difference. If the American people came to realize the truth. which is the main mission of the Chinese Communist Party. Is Not export communism to the rest of the world. which was the mission of the Soviet Union's Communist Party. But to try and reform I've and strengthen China's civilization. I what I told you is is a basic of. But most Americans, do not know this basic truth. Because, when they hear the what Chinese Communist, party. The what communists in the American imagination. is by definition somebody WHO's evil and doing bad things. That good a good communist continent, an oxymoron. In America, in American linguistic discourse. So when you when you tell them that they're dealing with the Chinese Communist, party the by definition, they believe they dealing with an evil party that is out to undermine America out to oppose the American values out to diminish. America's standing in the world without realizing. That the core mission of the Chinese Communist, party is is to make China's strong and what's interesting. And to understand how deeply rooted this mission is remember remember the send the words that Chairman Mao us. When the People's Republic of China was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine, he did not say, Hey, today we celebrate the victory of communism over capitalism and said that he said that she that the keyboards used that China has stood up he said it twice. China has to. So, even chairman mouse goal and he was much more of a communist clearly than the current leaders are in many ways was still China's strong. Too. That's why I think that the communist is. Creates a form of intellectual. Laziness in American minds because they cannot look behind that what the see what is really the purpose and mission. Of the Chinese Communist Party that's why I think that thinking of it as a Chinese civilization party, then they'll begin to realize the most important thing that America in China and live in peace because Chinese civilization is not opposed to American civilization American civilization and not oppose the Chinese civilization and both can live together in peace. Right right. What do you think the US not just a public but really even the foreign policy circle. Right. The folks in DC. The people who are supposed to understand the stuff for living because it's their job. To kind of display, this laziness intellectually speaking, is it just because the Cold War was still such a recent memory I guess for the United States generally positive memory. 'cause we won that we just kind of put the Communist label back to where it was just because it was something that we think we understand. You ask them very difficult question because this is the great. Paradox. About the United States in the United States spent more money. On strategic, think-tanks than any other country in the world I think he spends hundreds of millions of dollars. You not billions of dollars on tragic thing. And yet America the America is the best digit think-tank were. America has the worst thinking in the. And and is shocking for example, though any comes to understanding China? More strategic think tanks very Lisi and using all the conception tariff Nelia the Cold War in the Soviet Union. And then applying it to China, when is clearly not relevant? China. So. The inability. Of the strategic think tanks in in the United States to understand the real nature. Of China. Is actually quite a frightening. Thing to watch today,

"And every point in time. And that includes right now, but going back but going. Forward, which is remote union into the future, this is something that has been unfortunately sort of relegated to mysticism and a lot of thinking that well. You know you've got gotta be somebody living in a cave fifty years by herself to experience this. This is absolutely a harmful met. Bad I think Lisi the ASPEL and spiritual leaders, and unfortunately a lot of my scientific brethren have propagated. That is a damnable why. You do not have to be in some kind of ESAB terrorists it setting to have that experience or to develop. And so that is something that we have to begin to sort of move beyond this monkey on our shoulders going. Oh, I'm just a little dumb thing. I'm just stuck right here on earth and it just you're telling yourself that lie over and over again, and that becomes its own destiny.

Tracy Anderson - Fitness Pioneer
"I'm Tracy Anderson. I created the Tracy Anderson fitness method. And I am a mom of two. You can find me at Tracy Anderson Dot Com and you can follow me at Tracy Anderson method. What is your workout? I mean everybody knows your name and not everybody might know they're like wow this really great workout. And maybe they feel like they don't have access to it or they don't know exactly what it is but they know that tons leverage are obsessed with tons of people are obsessed with it. And what's the? What is the philosophy? How did you develop it? And why is it taken off so much? So kind of you It the philosophy is that I. My mission is to continuously create balance where there's imbalanced in specifically in women's bodies. It does work great for men but all of my studies have been done on women so I don't feel like it's fair to say that I really know what I'm doing with any man quite honestly so I I went to college on a dance. Scholarship and I gained forty pounds at school for dance and My Dad has fought. He's battled obesity is whole life and my mom was a beautiful. Prima Ballerina and my genetics. Just weren't my mom's once I hit you know. Nineteen twenty twenty one and I felt ashamed in a lot of ways like I felt like this is unfair that I have to be. I'm barely five feet tall in a black leotard and pink tights and I'm like gaining weight and instructors are literally looking at me like why the officially in my class right now. And how does she have a scholarship kind of thing because of the way that I looked like I had some teachers like you have so much talent but like just don't have the body and so I felt like that was really unfair? Yeah so I really focused on Choreography. And I was like you know what I'll be behind the scenes all all learn really all of the elements of craigie really strong Sorry what was what was creating the waking though if you're working out all the time it doesn't matter if people work out all the time quite frankly just because you work out all the time does not mean you're going to make weight and come back in a heartbeat for sure and eat bagging heartbeat but also everybody's metabolic rate is completely unique and completely different. How we store fat. How we need fat. How we How stress affects us like there are so many factors that affect our engines as women too. I mean and our right to dress their children whether we want to have them or not like. It's just a human you know it's part of our system and how that system works for each of us is actually shockingly unique and wait has a lot to do with it. And I think that a lot of people when you're genetically predisposed to certain metabolic rate and you try really hard to fight at our becomes something else you can do a lot of damage to your body and your psyche on a lot of levels and so this is why. It's very important for people to know that my is about creating balance where there's imbalance in anyone's unique body. It doesn't mean I am trying to make you into a teeny tiny dancer or into somebody that you're not so it the I think the passion and the spark for me started then because the counselors it at my school. Where like you know you need to eat less and just eat? Sinoe or like you know your roommates. Do Coke every night. Maybe join them. You know like really know and I just you know for whatever reason my mom I I was raised in a way that thank goodness I never had an eating disorder. I it was never an option or a consideration for me and I never did drugs. I wasn't like in me to do it right I do drink though that anyway so I I felt the I felt what it felt like to not be able to get your body to be something else in a healthy way and I. My mom worked three jobs to put me through school and I had an I joined crunch. I I did pilates with Ron Fletcher. And I was like. She was like scraping. Pennies together. Knows a distinct. How pilates is going to help me if I do step aerobics. And this and that an and nothing would change my body to where I mean. Sure like fitness. When you're working out you feel good. A lot of things can happen but and I was a really good performer. Too so a lot of people. I think in fitness because they can't perform really well. They don't get the calorie spend that you would need to actually start burning real fat so the Diet and the workout have to go so so closely intertwined you know anyway so I tried all these things and then I MY SON. Who's twenty one? his dad played for the New York Knicks? And he was like I love your booty. I don't know why you need to be like. Let's have babies and I'm like yeah. Why always wanted to be a mom that was given and coming from Indiana? We've become moms at twenty three. Because that's what I and but actually it was such a gift because Eric you know when you play for the New York Knicks. If you have an injury you get the best treatment and the entire world. So he was sent we. I spent my pregnancy with Salmon Puerto Rico and with this league that he was rehabbing his back with and I met an incredible incredible doctor who was so passionate about sports and he was like Have you seen Concussion with will Smith Gasoline. Okay so the only difference between will Smith's character in that and finding that protection for NFL players was Desai was an avid basketball fan avid. And he was like these guys are going to end up in Lisi boy recliners for the rest of their lives. No one's thinking about their spines. You know there's a better way to train for the to support their spines BUBBA and I was like I was either going to rescue all of the homeless animals in Puerto Rico or I was going to figure out how to help this guy and I went to his little clinic every day and He had done a mind blowing research on the inner spine muscles. And how the brain is connected and how you don't have to to like if you go. After the transitional muscles in a healthy way like and all the strategic muscle exhaustion. And it's miraculous what we can do and it made so much sense to me because I was like well man if we can make ourselves freakishly large like these bodybuilders. Do or or then I went. I dissect it literally every pro sports like speedskaters for the Olympics or runners. Long distance runners. If you look at people at the top of their game their bodies start to look very similar. Because you're calling to action the same kind of muscles and if you've got that willpower behind it you can really do incredible things with your body. So I studied with him this whole time and I started creating the choreography to support his science and I was like this is incredible and I said wait a minute. Why are we stopping at the back? If you can do this for the back why. Why can't we create this kind of balance and symmetry for the whole body? And he's like no one's ever gonNA come up without much content and I was like I fully em and then I. I did a five year. Study on one hundred and fifty women that I went to Indiana University. I was like how do I do a study? How do I didn't know how to do things and I think one of the things that so corrupt about the fitness industry? Today is that people and I hate to even think that I would be part of this problem which is why I stopped training. Celebrities years ago I literally was like I'm not even higher help oversee their programming come to the gym just like every body else not because I don't love them as people or or what they can. The kind of awareness they can bring forward is so great too. It's because it sends a toxic message to everyone out there that you should want to do what they want to do. Because you want to be them instead of wanting to do what's right for your own health and your own body and In the industry now people think if there they can move or they look good and they get a celebrity all of a sudden they have a method. And I'm like you got method. You gotTA fitness met. The how'd you get word that words all that like research research and I know what it took me and how I was just think naturally without without my ego attached to it because I really didn't think I have permission to be doing this. I just wanted to go back to schools like juilliard or whatever and go. Here's a program you can give these girls where they're not stuffing suppositories up their bum at night and bleeding like you know like it's terrible. It's terrible environment and it's really toxic and So I did the five. You're studying throughout the five year study. I had asked one question. My question was can I take any woman from any genetic background and turn them into what a dancer like looks like so I started from a place that didn't end up wanting to I didn't end up there. But that's that was like this is my mission and as did it I realized. Oh My Gosh. Like all of these. Women are in so many different various levels of pain and they're also unique and then I was like well and also they don't all WanNa go dancers and they don't all they just WanNa you know feel good or on this or and also you can. You can put a bunch of people ask them to do a routine and the same thing is not going to happen to all those
A Life Full Of Unmanageability
"Sleeping? I'm probably not the best person to speak on this one because I have never slept well since I was a teenager when I was drunk. I didn't sleep I passed out. There is a huge difference when you don't get restful sleep your brain can't perform some pretty important functions and it definitely can't perform at top level so I don't particularly sleep well in sobriety either. Never have it doesn't bother me that much much now. I think because I didn't sleep well even before I was a drunk. So maybe it's just normal to me. I think a Lotta Times. I use it to my advantage but the committee for me is just constantly flying around in my head a thousand miles an hour. It constantly only wants to talk about things it wants to learn something and wants to talk about this thing or that thing and that committee for me as a fulltime job so I have to come up with ways to deal with that and that's the thing that causes the greatest issue with sleep right and really when I talk about the committee chattering away. It's it's just a symptom of anxiety so when my head hits the pillow the committees going nuts right. It is talking about that that day. What we did that day what? We didn't do that day what we needed to do that day. It's talking about whatever thing is happening a month from now that we want to on stress out about in advance. It's thinking about how much stuff we gotta do next week and we're behind or are we going to get behind. Are we going to be able to keep up. Is Everything going to be. Okay I mean it just goes nuts right and I'm sure it's exactly what happens to you. It's what happens to everybody. So when your head hits the pillow the committees in a frenzy so for me I fall asleep pretty easily as long as I have something on for the committee to listen to him for me. That's usually the television Russian so I fall asleep easily but I toss and turn consistently throughout the night. I'm super sensitive to noise so the slightest little sound will get my into my attention. If Henry moves I wake up instantly. Make sure he's Okay and God forbid if I wake up enough if in the middle of the night if I really wake up enough that the committee wakes up then I'm screwed like I'm going to be up. There's no way for me to go back to sleep. Even that's just how it goes and I would say probably two to three times a month I'll get up at three or three thirty in the morning and just start working because is the committee gets fully engaged. And I can't go back to sleep and I get up super early anyway I get up between four thirty and five which is probably too early but getting up in the middle of the night can be frustrating and when that happens also I will usually have to take a nap later that day right so I just have to know my habits and I have to know what I need and I have to carve out the time to get that sleep whenever I can and I know I've talked about this a lot of different episodes too but I fall asleep with the television on you know and I can turn on the timer so we'll turn itself off or I'll turn on audiobook or I'll turn on something on youtube so when it ends it goes off automatically like a guided. Meditation guided sleep meditation or relaxation. Something you guys know. I made my own sober sleep relaxation meditation. MP Three that you can get on the website. My recovery toolbox dot com. And I just have to put on something so. The committee isn't engaged in talking about all of my anxiety right. I have to put on something scene where the committee can listen to that something in. That's what will allow me to sleep. I also know that I sleep better on days. I go to the gym. My Body is naturally more tired in the committee is more tired So those are always better sleep leap days for me but sleep has always been a challenge and it's a huge challenge for a lot of people with addiction. A lot of people will stay up all night watching TV then. Don't feel like crap throughout the day and this is the type of behavior that's unmanageable. especially if you're laying. They're tired erred. Telling yourself to go to sleep really tired like your body is telling you to go to sleep but you just keep watching. TV and staying away like that's that's a prime example of unmanageable city. Right like when your body's telling you to go to sleep and you're yawning and your eyes are heavy and they start to burn a little bit it go to sleep. That's the right thing to do. But when you stay up all night forcing yourself to stay up all night you you just throw off your whole circadian rhythm right and that is challenging. and that's unmanageable behavior. What's next hygiene? Well Hygiene. This can be a real struggle in a lot of ways for me in my drinking life I struggled with hygiene gene. In a couple of ways one was Washing my makeup off at the end of the night and the other one was brushing my teeth at night. I guess if if you think about it that's kind of obvious because I was drunk right so I just fell into bed and passed out but for those of you out there who wear makeup you understand what a negative give impact this can have on your skin and it's gross right it's lazy. It's irresponsible and well. I guess that pretty much sums up exactly who I was as a Human Lisi. And you're responsible so that makes sense but what happens then. Here's it's unmanageable right. I wouldn't wash my makeup off off and my skin was always messed up and I had breakouts and I had all these weird bombs and like it was weird. That's unmanageable just. Because I wasn't clean like that's gross. Rose I just wasn't clean in that way I was okay with showering. I showered every day for the most part and I think it probably felt pretty good to wash wash off some of the hangover each day but but there were also plenty of days that I woke up and never even made it out of bed so of course course. I didn't shower or anything else you know but back then too. I didn't do my hair or anything. My Hair's naturally curly in some of you've probably seen pictures of me online with my hair curly and when I was drunk I just got out of the shower in my hair immediately. Went up into a clip right. I put stuff in combed out and immediately went up in a clip soaking wet super low maintenance because I was lazy and I didn't care I had no energy like it was important to me but in sobriety those details can be different when when people have depressive episodes it can be a struggle to even get up and take a shower. And I've had those days too and when those days start to become more frequent went or several days in a row. This is where you're in an unmanageable situation. Like I said earlier my struggle was washing my face brushing my teeth at at the end of the night I was just drunk and didn't care. So are you starting to see the pattern here. Drunk and didn't care had sums up. That was my whole life breath on the other one housekeeping. This is one of the first things to fall apart. When I'm feeling overwhelmed or mad at my alive or extra tired I get really lazy and housekeeping? You know a sink full of dishes which you know. My sink is right next to the dishwasher and full dishes right next to the dishwasher that I have an unloaded or the garbage overflowing. Because I haven't put it out. Were the stack of mail and files and stuff that continues to grow because every day when I come in the door I set my stuff on the same counter right and if I don't put that crap away then that stack continues to get bigger or the piles of laundry that. I'm just not doing or the box of clothes that I got down from the top shelf of my closet to go through that I never put with the box backup there so it is currently sitting in my living room right now like it's a new piece of furniture. What I think about too is when these the small details of my life are not being done? Well it's a good sign that I'm dealing with some UN manageability when I noticed my house getting a little real messy or my car getting messy. Because I'm not throwing out the empty coffee cups or stacks of mail and papers that I'm just leaving in there instead of taking them inside. This is a good sign that I'm being lazy and not handling simple tasks and that's what unmanaged abilities about and if I'm not handling simple tasks chances are a not handling the bigger tasks in my life. Either you see how it all ties is together so all those little things that we tell ourselves. We give ourselves permission to procrastinate on those little things because as we tell ourselves. They're just little things they don't take that long. They're not that big of a deal. It's not life-threatening. Right the stack of papers on my counter is not the life threatening but what it is is a pretty big red flag that I've got some internal stuff going on that. I need need to look at because usually they are pretty simple tasks that aren't time consuming. So why am I not doing them in usually. It's because I'm feeling overwhelmed or I'm dealing with something emotional right. Maybe I'm just mad. Maybe just feel like I'm F ing things up that week so I just don't want to face anything maybe I'm fearful about Something in the future so I'm kind of paralyzed a little bit or trying to bury my head in the sand. I just don't want to deal with things like whatever the thing is. It's unmanageable. We will never do all these things perfectly fleet. All the time is so. Don't hold yourself to some crazy standard like your house should always be perfect and your laundry is always done in folded and put away in. The dishwashers always empty. And don't just don't because we're never gonna do everything perfectly all the time. It's not even possible. I don't think
Mitch Landrieu On The South's Racial Divide... And How To Bridge It
"I'm John L. Hanson in junior and welcome to another addition of him black America on this week's program divided by design with the Honorable Mitch Landrieu former mayor of New Orleans in Black America. You know so you know. We took all that information and said you know what are we gonNa do and one of the things we WANNA do is set up of an organization that helps number one. Educate most Americans about what the real history of our country is so that they can begin to understand institutional racism which clearly exists. Secondly we are going to Use Art Music Culture Sports to help change those stores and bring people together. We're going to do. Is We want to help. Train leaders and communities about what an equity agenda agenda would look like how equality and equity of two different things. And that if you really mean that everybody should have an equal opportunity that you have to design systems to do it and effectively. The conclusion was big picture was that the country is the way it is because we designed it this way and if we're divided you know somebody designed it so that we can be divided and if we want at the beach gather we got a redesign. It we gotta fix what we broke going up in the politically active and socially conscious family. Ms Landrus political roots. Run deep in Louisiana. Lisi Anna Way served two terms as governor and sixteen years in the state legislature and eight years as mayor of New Orleans to this any as seen seen firsthand how segregation and racism as affected communities in this country and particularly in the south over the course of year. His team met with people where they he lived. They traveled to twenty communities across thirteen southern states. They visit diverse parts of the region geographically demographically and culturally along their journey they had discussions in many different settings from one on one interview to small groups and roundtables to focus groups to community listening sessions. The capstone of their research is eighteen. Hundred Person Survey across the stage. They visited the report title divided by designs. The cavs for discussion or how. The American south experience issues of race and class in their communities. Recently in Black America spoke with Mayor Landrieu born and bred New Orleans Louisiana. The Anna one of nine children. We'd be my brothers and sisters. We got thirty eight kids and been here my whole life. There was an idea. What was I going up in New Orleans with nine kids families? You got to get to the front of the line as fast as you can get there. It was a I lived in a in a great neighborhood. We played street ball all the time. came from a big family. You know born and raised the and it was just a just a Lotta fun growing up. It's hard once you grew up in New Orleans to live anywhere else. 'cause wait okay. I'm sure everybody everybody feels good about the neighborhood. Do they grow up in what we we had a good time. What was it about your family and politics? You know it's an interesting. My Dad was a was a poor kid. He didn't hardly Nichols Rub together. Did know anybody grew up in a house that was about eighteen feet wide and sixty feet deep and live right across the street from from a cemetery grew up in a store room of his mom. Is You know house where she was. selling stuff to folks in the neighborhood he got around. You know after I got out of law school. Who figured that he wanted to try to do something good and ran for office and you know from there the whole family? Has You know based on what my mom and dad's work has been been kind. Kevin Gage the public service. Now not all of my brothers and sisters are in elected office. But you know they. They have spent their time. You know kind of following the lead of trying to give back where they could. In in your opinion what makes New Orleans such a vibrant city and people want to visit as often as possible. Well you've been here. Yeah you know we were talking a little bit Before your daughter went to school here this is a we celebrate it out three hundred dollars bursary this year. We have always been a very diverse place rich culture. You know history is such that and this is part of one of the efforts. I'm working on it we were. We were a huge Originating spot for slavery in America we also had the influence of the French the Spanish German. It was because of bovine. History is sorted history in some parts glorious than the others it has been a melting pot. That's reflected the soul of the country very culturally rich culturally deep and it has just been a really interesting place to live. You know I like to think of losses At least reflecting both burst both both the best and the worst of America because I- diversity from the beginning has been Great strength and You know it's it's it's got. His problems bought thought. You know. It is very reflective of the full diversity of what we hope that. America's GonNa be one day we're new became mayor of New Orleans. The city was experiencing just after Katrina. Give us a snapshot of how the city has progressed. Since that time. Well everybody remembers. I mean if it's almost like when nine eleven hit you remember where you were. Most people remember where they were. When Katrina hit? I mean it was a defining moment for us because the whole city was destroyed. I mean we. We got beat to death by that storm. I mean literally. We lost eighteen hundred of our brothers and sisters and bothered fathers aunts and uncles and kids every physical structure in the city. Almost underwater seventeen feet of water for weeks. I mean we had to rebuild this thing from nothing and you know like when when you're in a tragedy you come together because you have to you know you you better you better find somebody that can lift you up. You're not GonNa make it and you better listen body else up. But they're not Michael Baker and out of that tragedy. The people of New Orleans you know had a common focus and we came together. We had to rebuild all of our schools. We rebuilt the hospitals. We're opening up a brand new airport Next week with the rebuild all of our schools and we had to get our feet back underneath us and so you know although it was a very tragic tragic moment in the city miraculously. I mean the people found a way to rise above lots of different things. That separate us and rebuild the city and so the city is doing really really well. Now it is. It's further along than I think. People expected it to be. I think people now can look at the complications in Puerto. Rico go on in other places. It's hard to come back when you get beat. You know by by a natural catastrophe like that you'll see these wildfires in California put some communities. He's on the back one of the interesting things about it and this is something that we've all known is that people had stuff before the storm had an easier time coming back then people. That didn't have stuff. You know. So generation wealth and resilient to the communities are all very much an important part of. You know making sure that that you're ready to come back and it's been a little bit uneven but you know the city if you came here you'd be surprised at how how much progress has been in the last thirteen years the sand obviously with the rebuilding of New Orleans. You had a team. Well who are some of the other individuals that one part of the city government that you leaned upon on to get advice and insight. Well the truth is and I'm not trying to be cute here but the answer is everybody in the the only way that the city could come back was by having everybody in the world and help us so we got huge numbers of a financial and philanthropic donations from other countries Um working with the president of the United States was really really important in his cabinet. Getting the state government the local government but on the ground down on the ground having the faith based Community Mutiti the not for profit community you know individuals at all wanted to help everybody in kind of deal and You know there was so many people it'd be hard to call out. I want to but literally as I was the one of the most blessing. Blessed things was no matter who restarted. The answer was always yes. And that's why New Orleans feel so thankful to the rest of the country for all that that you guys gave us and so you know we want people to come visit and see it you know. I think you'll be surprised. You know we're like any other big city in America we have challenges and that will be here before Katrina and we're trying to figure them out from housing. The transportation redoing the criminal justice system all of those things. We still have great challenges with. But we're better off than we were before the storm.

The world has never been more convenient. What is that doing to us?
"As it sounds like the invention of canned beans. We've gone to canned goods than we invented washing machine. Everything we have done has been about making our lives easier that in and of itself is not about thing. It's very good thing but with a i technology the options now are making our choices the matter of lifting a finger instead of actually physically washing the walking to a washing machine gene and doing the actual labor. We're not doing labor anymore. We're not doing anything that requires some effort some thinking some inconvenience everything we're choosing and everything that's being offered to us is about making life easier simpler and frankly less rewarding. Is there a threshold somewhere that we crossed because to your point. I don't think anybody would argue that. The invention of the dishwasher or washing machine was a bad thing but there's it's gotta be a line somewhere where it goes from things that are freeing us up to make the most of our time to things that are actively discouraging us from interacting interacting with the world. Will i think if you think about it think about the technology that is available when you take something as basic as social media area and how pervasive it is it appalls me when i'm walking home from work and i see pretty much i would say ninety five percent of the people walking with their face into their their phones not looking at anybody on the street not bothering to see which direction they're going. They just kind of do it like they're a bunch of drones walking down the sidewalk and even that it's just we are so programmed to be osman's. Almost it's now. I think that's the threshold and it's only people that are a little bit alarmed by the fact that menial chores banality l'idee things like that are actually something to embrace instead of something to shun. They're the ones that i think are going to kind of lead a counter revolution and take back some of the the more boring stuff of their life and find satisfaction in it that gets at what i was going to ask you next 'cause i can't and i hope i'm i hope i'm only speaking for myself but i don't think that i am i can't find satisfaction in walking four blocks to pick up my food when it could just be brought brought to me or to use your example. I don't find any satisfaction in assembling furniture like i will pay just moved. I will pay whatever it costs to not do that and i don't know when my brain switched and maybe it was just because it became an option not to have to yeah i get your point but do you find satisfaction picking up your phone and ordering something online like. Does it make you happy to have food delivered to your doorstep. Stop instead of taking the time the thought and the preparation in buying your groceries actually spending the time to prepare para dish that you've thought about and put care into. I don't know if you've kids or if you have a family but do you actually get satisfaction out of feeding your kids is giving them a great meal hearing them say dad while that was a great dinner. Thank you so much. I would love to hear say that for the record but she's not going to know no. I i do find that when you go to the market and buy your vegetables in the morning and spend the afternoon cooking you take more time with your food food to taste it to experience it. <hes> and you want the people around you to figure out the word enjoy it. Yes yeah you feel much better about it right and and i guess what fascinated me about your piece is trying to figure out what that is actually doing to us the process of not engaging like it's one thing to say like garden even notice that i i ordered my and i ate it but do we know what that is doing to us. What toll that takes well. I think i interviewed i. I think she's in the story. Her name was making caselli and she's a stand up comedian in toronto and i absolutely loved what she said so she he told me how her and her partner east love getting up in the morning they'd have piece of paper sitting on their counter instead of itemize list plugged into their phone and they would have things to do like pick up the dry cleaning <hes> maybe go by some fresh flowers at the market things like <hes> they would walk around. They would say hi to their neighbors. They would maybe stop for lunch may be discovering new cafe where they had a really great cup of coffee and instead she said that all the do now is basically sit it or lay in bed with their phones and take off the boxes by ordering things that they might need and they don't do that kind dove lisi meandering wandering around the neighborhood where they <hes> actually meet people face to face and have a conversation sation. She just finds that her saturdays in her sundays are way more dull and they're not as fulfiling how do we we start to convince ourselves to do these things. You mentioned that there. Someone's gotta start a mini revolution about reclaiming the pleasure in everyday activities activities. Where does that begin. I think i think really if you look around. You're already see it beginning <hes> the artisan community <hes> when it comes to food food farm-to-table cuisine. There's a big push. There's a lot of people that are actually really making an effort now to <hes> get to local the markets and do that kind of shopping support the local <hes> farmers. There's there's a there's a growing swell swell of individuals who care about the people that actually put in time sweat tears into making products or produce or whatever it is that they are giving to us. They're taking the time to say okay. I'm gonna make an effort to come to you and those kinds of businesses are actually flourishing. <hes> this one lady after i wrote the p. she she sent me an email and it was really thoughtful and she said the one thing that you didn't think about was how how all of these click bait options. I e anything you can click on to get delivered to you immediately. She said they're destroying. Small towns sounds all the tiny retailers mom and pop shops that you stu subsist because of people being loyal to them coming to them. They're starting to disappear now. It's not just because of convenience per se. It's also because of big box retailers ars but that's an earlier form of convenience. You know with the big box. Go there do everything all in one swoop. That was just another incarnation nation of the you know the rollout of convenience that has been chugging along for the last hundred years that god knows what level it will get to with with technology. Do we have any idea how quickly the click an order and get it off. The internet economy is growing well well. I think if you consider just the <hes> amount of purchases that are done on the web so in the worldwide for instance stints almost two point nine trillion dollars was purchased last year in canada alone were expected double what we did in two thousand sixteen and by this year will have spend forty billion dollars online so is growing exponentially and with services like amazon ebay. All of those different ones will even them more conventional couriers like u._p._s. and fedex etcetera. They're all trying to find a way to go to zero emissions and make things a little bit more environmental friendly in my piece. I didn't wanna hammer on about the environmental impact talked. All the easy choices were making but there's absolutely no question that everything that we're doing when we're relying more on airplanes since on vans to bring us things. All these things are taking a toll on the environment just this morning. I was reading the paper and there's a new book out by tatiana schlossberg. That's caroline kennedy's a daughter who's was a science reporter for the new york times and she's just written a book about <hes> this very phenomenon and she calls the inconspicuous consumption and it's about the environmental impact that you don't know oh you have and i have not read it but i'm going to and it what makes me happy. What makes me feel better is that all of these things are starting to be written. People are starting to think about all of this stuff in a much more concerted and wholesome way. I guess who do you you think or where do you think i guess we first documented how far we'd come in the race for convenience and how much could cost us. When did we start to realize just how far we were going. I don't think we've realized that yet <hes>. I don't think that most people even even give it. A second thought. I was shocked at the response at the story. I wrote about convenience had what was it was overwhelming. It was bizarre really really because it was a topic that nobody has thought about that said there are some there are people who are far more learned learning than i am who are starting to write <hes> fascinating essays in places like the new york times and the atlantic all these publications that are starting according to examine the tyranny of convenience and how we need to start thinking about the choices we make instead of always opting for something that is almost a mindless thing to do. We should maybe start making our lives a little bit more difficult and by that i mean maybe we should not order from ubereats and maybe we should actually walk two blocks and go to the grocery store and maybe we should take an hour and make a meal for our family while maybe they stand around and actually talk to you and you have a conversation with your child about her day her homework. I'm sure you do that anyway. But wouldn't it be nice if she just kind of hung out with you while you showed her how to make a dish that otherwise she she would never know how to make because you just ordered in one of the things that stopped me and my tracks from your piece the same way you've gotten that response is i think we've talked about all the individual aspects of what you describe on this podcast. We've certainly talked about social media addiction and what it does to us. We've definitely talked about packaging waste and what the the proliferation of plastics have done to the planet and we've talked about how we don't connect in person anymore like we've done episodes on all those topics but we've never put it together to to figure out what's at the root of it and to realize that your motivations for doing all those things that aren't good for you are simply convenience and laziness. This is a tough thing to grapple with and i think it's it's a hard sell to convince people to go backwards. That's a really good point. I don't think it anybody is advocating to go backwards. I don't think that's it at all. I think it is instead of moving forward at at such. A breakneck speed always putting yourself. I always making sure that you're choosing to do things that require the least amount of energy and effort on your part. I think that all people are trying to say is every once in a while. Put the brakes on. Take takes some time. Grab a hobby this wonderful <hes> writer. His name is tim wu. He's a lawyer columbia. He said when you think about it. Hobbies are really a waste of time. Why would you build a model car when you can go out and buy one well the point is you to build the model car because you get satisfaction of using your brain and actually figuring out how to put it together. You me an example of something you've done. Since you wrote this piece that you wouldn't have done before you wrote it. Well one thing i am doing but i didn't do it today to get here because i always under hurry and after go somewhere after her work but i have been i live at <hes> a busy intersection in toronto and i have been walking to the rom role winter you museum picking up one of the city bikes biking it on one of the multiple blake bike lanes that are in this city now and doing doing it to work and coming home the same way that's one thing i did not do before the other thing that i am actively doing is. I am looking for the farmers markets. I am trying to find those smaller. <hes> vendors who need my dollars versus a lob laws or a whole foods are so eas who really doesn't isn't. I'm trying to do those kind of things and the other thing that i i am actively doing now is i'm trying to grow my own vegetables. I live in a condo. I have started a vegetable garden on the balcony and i get so much the joy out of going out there and watching you know the tomato start to grow <hes>. I guess the main thing i've done is i've just kind slowed down a bit and just done some few more things. You'll fashioned way exco gail mcdonald feature writer at the globe globe in mail.
Officiating becomes focus of Warriors-Rockets Game 1
"Outlets off the heart at the foul line. The control. There. A wild sequence a very apoplectic Mike Tony screaming towards the official. James harden is so difficult to officiate. He's initiating contact. And there was a lot of contact right there. Calls early or no calls for James harden. And of course, the one down the stretch that the NBA said was the correct call warriors would pull out a four point win the series opener rockets, not happy at all with how it came down. But coach Mike dantonio he's moving on yesterday. I shouldn't buddies you guys had a great pity party, and you know, by myself, and then nobody showed up. Walled? So now, you know what? Whether we wanna laws we're gonna bring game Tuesday. And then when when we we're gonna win Saturday, and this is the mentality gotta have and that's part of the game. And I've been all over the points. So it's over I felt sorry for myself. Nobody really helped me out I got throat, and I'll be fine you'll be fine. And you know, what is big game on Tuesday. Mike, Dan, Tony might be moving on Lisi's says he's moving on. But he's those -ation announcing Monday the refs were correct in their pair of no calls in the final seconds. That's at the NBA did say the officials made three crucial. Incorrect calls in the final minute ten of the game, including two would have resulted in Steph curry fouling out. Hurry, those state in the game and wound up making a key three pointer with twenty four seconds to go rockets would like to have had game. What officiated a little bit differently? They were certainly vocal about it. And it's not just game one. They're piping up about the rockets went back and audited game seven from last year's Western Conference finals and into report they sent to the NBA they say, they're Eighty-one. Incorrect calls or no calls. Houston said that deprived them of a spot in the NBA finals. Rockettes may have the New Orleans Saints online to here. Was more. Here's our crew on the jump. The rackets took the league's forty eight minute version of its last two minute report for games they played against Golden State analyze the missed calls that the league Ida fi. But then assign their own point values to what they feel what have fairly come out of those incidents if they were called. So how did the NBA feel about this executive vice president Mike bass told me that quotes as we tell the rackets agree with their methodology? And indeed is that can I looked at it a lot of it is subjective. But regardless it is now also part of the story, which is not what anyone wants during a series that should be its own fireball for the past ball going on on the court. Not for everyone's opinion on the folks in the stripe shirts. Standing nearby. Scotty that is a lot of stuff going on in less than twenty four hours. But it's now all part of this conversation. Do you think the rackets deserve more calls that that would have changed game one? I mean based on what I saw from the rockets into regular-season based on what I've seen James harden. Get into regular season the call. He gets. Yes, he did calls anytime you make contact with a guy when he's still in the air. That's automatically call. I don't care if students at him you have to give him room to come down. You see guys basket all the time shooting. Rauner shooting floaters day get a foul on that contact and they're floating. So it's the same situation would have jumped shooter in in some senses that guys he's fallen boiling. You're not allowed to make contact with the rules of changed a little bit. And I think the way harden launches himself forward because if you watch some of these specially that call at the end of the game, he launches himself. Scotty, I don't know. How many I don't know how much for? But his legs go a bit for they didn't change from. Regular season to the playoffs because he's getting these calls about three weeks ago. Right. But I don't think he should've gotten that calming. According to radio he getting some of them last week. Right. I do think the call your on the league reviewed it. And they said dream on did not fail, and you can't make your landing area as you know, half the court, right? You can't kick your legs out to such a degree that it just becomes everything. And it's to frustration of what they were going skiing. You can try to dodge it, but if you make contact it's a foul, and I felt like the warriors game plan was great because they almost turned their face. They turned their back. They didn't really buy into the file allow the Fisher just automatically call it. And I think that was a big difference maker then them making that call in not making it the Houston Rockets were expecting that very game plan because they have compiled data from every position. Absolutely. Of course. And so they you know, James Harden's game. Let the league in free-throw temps. He needs to get to the line. If you make some shots or Mississippi is gonna go to the line. That's always the case. So if you're Houston, you're going to lay out all these two ticks, and you saw them I did not you're telling me, and I believe you Zach that they're their subjective. Of course, they are. Of course, they are. But I just think it's a shame that this series is going to be focused on
China's economic slowdown
"China's slowing economy has been blamed on uncertainty caused by the US China trade war as well as a government crackdown on high levels of corporate debt, Ravi Macci discusses what's behind the slowdown. And why it meshes with Martin wolf the FTC chief economics commentator and Lisi Hornby deputy bureau chief in Beijing. Martin you spent the past week or so in China talking to policy makers leading your Coughlin's, what's your sense of the state of the Chinese economy? And why it is hurting right now, I was actually quite surprised by what I was being told I expected when I went that. And I was in Shanghai met quite a lot of business people and economists at also in Beijing where it's more government officials in economists I expected the mood to be rather gloomy, in fact, really quite gloomy. But the sense that I got from pretty well, everyone, including people in the private sector is that they felt that the economy had stabilized over stabilizing that the government had indicated a number of quite significant sort of shifts in policy emphasis, particularly towards the private sector. They were more welcoming of the private sector which made the private business people. I spoke to a little. A bit more optimistic about their place in Mr. she's Chinese universe and they felt van the worrisome. Decline in the economy in the bottom last year at Holtet. And Finally, I got the impression that they felt that the China US mess would be manageable. Whatever happened that there was a will on both sides to manage it. So to my surprise as I indicated the mood. I sensed was rather more optimistic than I had expected. And I must say I have a feeling that it may be more optimistic than his warranted. But that's something else. Well, let's delve into that. I wanted to ask you specifically because of this optimism around the trade talks and the policy measures the government is taking encouraging the private sector to think things are stabilizing. What about the deeper prep structural issues that you think maybe need to be addressed nor to create some sustained growth? What are the bigger challenges that props lie ahead? The on the trade talks. Well, I suppose the questions outside economists and some in China have had I is it actually possible given its current strike for China to sustain rapid growth without enormous debts accumulations relative to GDP further debt bubble in other words, enlarging the debt bubble because if that's true, then they have a real dilemma that is to say every time they start the deleveraging process economy slows so essentially, they have to reverse it. So that's one real big issue that relates to a second one. I'm just focusing on the short run they've introduced some quite interesting fiscal measures, really quite substantial tax cuts. They Primera whom we met spoke of reductions of two trillion are in being tax revenue. That's quite a lot of money, but he also insisted and this is the old Chinese story. We must have a balanced budget. I that spending will be cut us much. And we in the west would say, well, that's. Not a net stimulus that doesn't make much sense. Again. It leaves you back in the debt crap. And then the final question, I'm just focusing on the macro structural side. Is China's still continues to have an enormously high investment rate, it's declined somewhat. But it staggeringly high the growth rate has clearly slowed a lot can they really sustain this investment rate in anything that looks like a market led economy. And that is what they've turned back to sort of emphasizing. We are ultimately going to be quite market lead, and that links, I should've Pap side, this this is sort of broader confusion, which I got from everybody's will wear does the Chinese government really want to take this economy. Is it still in the reform and opening up period? Still believing the private sector is a crucial element with rising importance or does the Chinese government at least onto Mr. she essentially won't to turn it back to significantly more state-led economy, and that really profound. Fusion, I didn't get any sense of resolution from the conversations I had
