"Sir. Polly doozy's is immortal. And they're both dust sons of the same mother. The queen of sparta. Lita you may have heard of the myth of leader in the swan about trauma these cutting edge psychologists that i discovered only more recently. I've been writing about the connections between the missing the stars for a long time. Been writing about how these twins picture for us this divine self but it really started to become more understandable to me when started to hear the teachings of psychologists like dr gabor matej dr richard schwartz. Who talked about trauma in trauma is caused by these terrible things. That happen to us. But that's not the actual if you listen to the teachings of dr gabor matting. He'll say the trauma was not actually those things that happen to you when you're little or whenever they happen to you if it was that would be actually impossible affairs because you can't go back in time to when you were three with. The trump is actually the result of those things that happened in the result was separation from yourself.

"Next week. The in that twist is one hundred twenty five and one hundred and fifty by the third week in that one is two hundred fifty. So you will be priced out completely of everything and the two hundred and fifty. You'll be priced out if you don't get at least one top three finish and then or sorry. Yeah at least one top finish into the top six finishes in order to get to fifty so You would assume that means that next week perhaps the base level will be something like seventy five or a hundred and then top three would get like one hundred fifty or something along those lines but all of this again very unclear okay. Is it possible that they get to bet on outcomes like if someone currently has fifty or one hundred there will be a time. Where if something's happening. That obviously isn't going to be like veto that they're already kind of betting on this next one but something in the house. That's happening they stop and they go. Who wants to put up fifty or one hundred dollars that this happens and they can kind of risk to double their money like do double or nothing kind of things along the way. Is that possible. It would be fun. But i think that perhaps that leaves the window open for everyone to theoretically lose their money if everyone bet like tried to dub nothing money than nobody would have any money and then there twists would really fall flat. They probably don't want that. The though just said i wonder comics rider. I wonder if brittany's unspent Earth like perhaps like Anybody who doesn't spend money if their money than if they get then get victims. Do they do then. Perhaps bequeath their money Somebody else or or we can be won by somebody else. I want a legacy advantage Believe inheritance no generational wealth fund baby.

"He didn't do that because he he really took this record to another level. All the guys at dean kramer came in and played some solo stuff. And having jimmy and brad plan base action. He did an incredible job. Jimmy is tremendous drummer and also as a tremendous fashion sense. He's outfitted in three was. Just fantastic i two. Yes he's rocking. And most drummers are the least addressed in the band usually tank top and shorts or something because they got to be so active. But jimmy's semi rocks the jacket and the color coordinated. He's really stepped up in recent years he has and i don't know where it came from but we all love it because he like you said he was just a a jeans and tee shirt guys dolgin shirt or whatever and get up there and play your ass off it. One day with the suit will go. That's pretty damn cool jimmy. Johns closet of steve. So why why. This versus a kicks record. Did you talk to the guys about possibly doing another kicks record. And they're not a lot of interest there from them. Why why take the songs and do it like this versus a ban thing I did share this music with the guys. And i've really got crickets back. It's like i don't know they just weren't ready to do a kicks out of them or they just didn't feel just material qualified as kicks material when i write. I'm not writing for anyone project or vehicle songs and my hope was it. Just take these songs in a pile thrown into the hat whenever kicks was ready and whatever they pick out great and what what are they. Don't pick out then. Maybe i'll release it by myself down the road so but there's just no talk of a of a kicks album right now. I think we we. We've got so backed up by the pandemic we didn't get a chance to really get out and promote The the midnight dynamite relive. So that's still a campaign that that that mark is trying to to push right now. And i haven't heard any new music from the other guy so at this point. I don't know if it's a business and saying financial thing or It doesn't get. It really doesn't get talk about that much. That being said anybody that having heard the record and it's a really good record. It's a fun record. There's some great songs on it. it's not. There's no three minute songs. I mean hooky quick. I mean there's nothing on this record that a kicks man would not connect within relate to. It's your voice. It's very kick sounding even though it's not under the kicks name at least that's how i felt about it. Oh that's that's a compliment and i. I think because of my influences are different i. I've kicked down that line of arrowsmith zeppelin. Ac dc stones. And and like. I was telling you earlier. My influences are a lot different than that. And and i write like that. I use my influence when i write. I don't just try to write in one direction so If if that's the reason that they didn't feel that the were worthy of kicks album. Okay with that. You know you've told me many times that you're a listener of the of the podcast interviews. That i post from this radio show and as a result. What's that every week. I don't miss one. well thank you. I appreciate that. But i was gonna tell you so from that. You obviously know that. I love cds and i love physical packaging so i thought it was funny when i saw you three last week and you handed me the cd. You gave a a a a precursor and you're like i'm just warning you. I did it on a small budget. I didn't have a lot of packaging and stuff so talk about the packaging because again i just love having it physically no matter what and i appreciate people so make cd's but you've got some nice photos here. But what i'm interested in asking you about is the cover which is just looks like you hand wrote it or something on a napkin. Talk about the cover I was on the phone with madeline. Madeline score pool. Who helped me put this whole thing together and we were going back and forth but what kind of album cover you thinking the What kind of artwork got this guy. Who can talk to him. And i was like i don't think any of the titles really deserve any kind of cover so i said i've only got one idea and i and i said well let me let me send you a picture so i hung up and i drew the album cover. Just just the way it is and senator and she said i love it so there with the app i gotta tell you i mean. You're you're a fantastic singer and frontman as far as drawing hard yours though maybe not your strongest suit. That'd be my wondering on the album. Cover credit my wife but i gotta tell you this too if i was a musician and i drew an album. Cover steve. It would probably look exactly like that. Stick figure because i'm as bad if not worse in terms of writing and drawing. So i it's it but it's charming. It kinda works. I like it i really do. It started back in the days when we used to do end stores and people would come up and say. Can you write something special to me or do something special when after awhile. You just go brain dead so i i. I started drawing that little. Stick man. i'll give you a self portrait and then it sort of be often people would get my autographing. What the stick man too. So that's that going stick manson's eighty one. Yeah once you paint yourself into a corner like that signing autographs then it becomes a thing you know. I'm very close with as freely for many decades and ace a year years ago. Started for people do a little something extra for he would draw an ace card after his signature and now because people have seen that when he's done meet and greets. I want the card. I want to gotta be careful because you set a precedent and the title came from. I was again not sure what to call it. And i will sit never with all the guys when we finished up recording said anybody have any ideas for what we call this thing and about two or three hours later bob perry texts me and he said you're welcome and i thought that's perfect. I mean got the stiff man at all the things that that people identify with me so i thought you know simple. It says of all and i like. Yeah and if you've seen kicks live you know the reference to you're welcome when you make the audience say that so that it ties it all together. Do you hope to do shows. Steve do you do you. Would you like to put a band together and try to play live or do you just feel that doing that with kicks is good enough for now. We've talked about it. I think if we were able to do it at all would probably be around the january february time. 'cause brian getting back in with rhino bucket. They always do a european tour every january and february. So that would be a window for us if brasow down. The road within regained glazes We could probably do something there if they all wanted to. So there's a possibility all right all right and as far as kicks going forward We hope ronnie gets back and gets well. But you're going to continue to man. I tell you i remember. I remember. I don't know how many years it is now. But your booking agent sullivan calling me up. And saying i did it. I did it. I'm like what are you talking about. I got back together. I'm like what are you talking about. He goes kicks kicks. They're coming back. said why. because you know you've been on with me for funny money and we'd talk over the years and and that seems like yesterday but how long ago was that that the ban started up again solomon got on board with us around two thousand seven two thousand eight because we we just been doing like regional shows like in dc baltimore backyard area just to do maybe five six shows a year. That's the way it's sorta started off and just out of the blue. I got this call from sullivan. Big and heavy on the phone for hours trying to convince me that he could be our agent. He.

"Yeah steve you said the singers emulated who were they who were the people that you listen to that shaped your vocal. Approach that you you loved. I loved alice cooper. I loved mark foreigner. I loved Robin zander I love the beatles. I i always. I like i go for for melody and harmony. That that's always. That's always my go-to so those earlier bands deep purple and then got into acdc and aerosmith all the bands that that kicks trust emulate but in the beginning it was it was all those sixties and seventies fans that i sang along with pre dog night queen. All the fans taught me how to sing. You know mentioning. Alice is interesting because alice's obviously an icon and a great guy instill great to this day. But he's not a guy that comes up a lot when you talk about great singers but if you really listen to the records and you listen to him now he's still he's so consistent and his voice really is great. It's not. It's not a freddie mercury kind of voice which is why. I don't think it gets mentioned in that breath but is voice is very cool very unique and it still sounds exactly the same. It's just not a guy when when people talk about alice. It's the theatrics it's the songs. But you don't hear a lot of people at least i don't talk about his vocal ability so i think it's really interesting that you mention that. Because he's really somebody. I think that's overlooked in that area absolutely. I agree one hundred percent just singing out. Cooper songs taught me how to get that that grou- into my voice. And then i could sing more foreigner where it was clean steven tyler worked kind of inbetween half rally half clean so i would emulate all these great singers best. I could so when we started making records. When donny would. Donnie cornell say. Give it a little steven tyler. You have a little bon scott. I would be able to find those references and do it. So i think that's what most people do you. You latch onto your to your favorite singers. You do your best to emulate them and then you then you claiming insurance. Let's talk about utah joke about yourself. You're being old. Well you've decided to make a solo record your first solo record after nearly forty years in this business. The record came out last week. It's called your welcome. I imagine i'm taking. I'm gonna take a stab at this and say that this may be a byproduct of the pandemic where you sitting around and said you know what after forty years damaged. It's time to do a solo record. No i definitely had no intention of donna solo records. And you know if you think about it i. I did set low records under the band. Name funny money. So i you know. This isn't really my ercilla record. Undermine name but i did do for other records and funny money that i wrote most of the material up until the stick it album but this kind of this whole thing just kind of happened through jimmy shelf on or drummer and brad. Who was actually in kicks during the cool kids album. Brad's than Building a studio in his house he him. Jimmy have been getting together and recording cover songs just to give brad some some experience in studio and jimmy just said to him one day. You know steve sitting on a pile of songs. And i don't know kicks is going to be doing anything with them anytime soon. So why don't we get him in here and record a couple of originals and record something from the ground up and said that sounds great. So i took my twelve songs that are on the record and we sat down with brad and played all of them. He just looked at me and said let's record all civil. Then i'm making a solo record. Arnold and he said i think so. So that was the whole That's the way it got kicked off. And i was lucky. Enough to have jimmy shop on do do most of the drumming. I got to play a couple of tracks of drums on there. I bob perry come in and do most of of the The rhythms and i got the play bunch of rhythms on as well. I made it a point on a couple of songs that i got to play everything so just to let people know that i'm more than just a singer. That was interesting to me. I did not realize that. I did not you played drums. And you you. You played all instruments like that. I mean and i've learned that over time with certain musicians which is surprising where they'll be like. I'm really a guitar player. But it just you know the voice and they wanted to front man. And that's why i did it but yell you you can pretty much play everything Pretty much i mean i. I started out as a drummer when i joined. What is now kicked started as a drummer slash Frontman with another drummer him. And not what. What kind of switch back and forth which was great for giving me experienced a learn how to front of band. 'cause i was an absolute heard in the beginning so that worked out well and then when they threw me out front permanently. We got jimmy and jimmy such a great drummer. He's just. He's just a a pile thunder. It sounds to me and and the other thing about this record is jimmy did ten from tracks from his house and sent the file in the brad. I did all the vocals from my house. And bob and brad probably spent some time together in the studio. 'cause bob commend with an idea of at every play on hindley guitar would would work fast. What would work best. He's kind of real meticulous guys. And i would have just plug instead to hell with it. But i thank god..

"No ronnie's than up and down over the past couple of years he he'll he'll clean up for a while then he'll come out he'll do great play great and then he'll slide off the wagon and he won't show up the show so this time our hands were tied we've been we've been tolerating and brian taking over all guitar duties but this time he was He's pretty much in a rehab for year. That that he can't get outta so he he couldn't join us onstage if he wanted to. Or if he was capable of it and at this point you know all we can do wishing the best and let fans know that the door will be open if they can get together and get healthy mentally and physically and our our guys filling in for and bob perry totally understand that and we're all rooting for ronnie. But right now order for us go out and put on the best show possible we had to bring in bob perry And and steve. You know. I'm wondering without getting too personal on this because i know it is a personal thing for ronnie and we all wish him nothing but the best but you know coverted had a real bad effect an impact on a lot of people who struggle with addiction We've seen examples of that was do you think ronnie falling off was triggered by that at all as he expressed that at all. He has an express that he's like say he's been battling this up and down for about the last eight years. We did the cool kids album in nineteen eighty two eighty three ronnie had a drug problem then and we had to replace him so he got he got clean and sober was sober. For over twenty years and we don't know what triggered his relapse but it up and down for about the last eight years. I mean a year in rehab is a pretty. That's a pretty strong commitment. So hopefully that'll do the trick. Well i think he ran into a problem with with the law and he pretty much has to do that in order to Just to try to fulfill his recovery. So he's all in. I mean. I've talked to him a couple times brian to talk to him a couple times and he wants to do whatever he has to do to get better and get back to where he belongs. Steve you've been in this business as a singer and frontman for well over forty years now. Did you ever struggle with that kind of stuff. In your in your life i mean. Did you have that early on did you dabble in that or we always on the on the cleaning and straight. I'm not. I would never say i was clean straight. I definitely dabbled with alcohol. That's probably my my weakness when i get done show. I need a couple of shots and jack daniels in a couple of beers just to bring you back down to earth but never had a drug problem. never got into that Never interested me. and it's just unhealthy. I've i've been pretty much a health nut ever since my twenties about working out and being in good shape being able to hit that. Stay with the confidence that i know. I can perform at a high level. So i've always made that my priority. Yeah i mean sure. Having a few drinks. There's nothing wrong with that. I mean. I've been lucky in that regard to i mean i've been in this business thirty eight years professionally and thank thank. God i never did a drug at an issue with that at all but yeah i'll pick my spots and have some drinks but i'm talking about we've seen it. We've all seen it for so many decades with so many bands and so many people the casualties of rock and roll and the excesses. That come with it. it's luck you're lucky and blessed if you're able to come out the other side of it still okay and not having gone down those roads right. I'm brian struggled with it. At one point two when he left kicks in like nineteen ninety-one he went out to la and he got into drugs and and had had a really bad stretch and he's been clean now for over twenty years. So you know it's unfortunately when you get into the fans and your favorite people are like keith richards. And and these people influence you and you wanna be like them so you start. Don't draw to be like them than live. The life and i never want to live that life. Yeah well cases in anomaly. Nobody can keep it. We'll all be gone and still be here but young guys getting bands and and you know they wanna they wanna tear up hotel rooms and they they wanna do all the all the legendary things that the that the rock band did when they were kids. So I think some people watch on to to the drugs the same way they do just recreation and being nuts. It's part of being in a band. That's the freedom you know you talk about your health regimen and how long ago you started and i remember probably about ten years ago talking to you or maybe it was when the the last kiss kicks record came out and we talked about it a little bit at that time you were doing. Where was it p ninety x that you're doing you're italian about your regimen. You were real. I mean anybody. That senior knows that. You're you're obviously in top shape giving your age. It's remarkable the shape you're in as well Not to say your old steve. You know what i'm saying but do you still do that. Talk about how you stay in shape like that. It's incredible absolutely like it takes a lot of disciplined and especially to this pandemic. I mean for me to be able to get up and i. I walked four to five miles everyday just to start my day. And then i work out and i've been doing ninety six for about twelve fifteen years now and it works and i've i've i've been doing it so long. I don't even need the the disc anymore. I know all the exercises in my head and I do it so i can. I can put on good shows that. That's my whole thought behind it if if and when i stopped doing this i don't think i'm going to be working out like an animal every day but for now as long as i along with. I'm doing this.

Yes i was supposed to believe it or believe it. Or not steve. I was actually supposed to do that with you. I was supposed to host that. And i couldn't because i was closing on this place in vegas. My closing came up. And i had to cancel out of it but they were nice enough to ask me to host. That and i was really bummed. I couldn't do it but it's an outdoor free thing if i recall yeah. It's industry and poured down rain about halfway through our set to kick cloud continues. An and i looked at it. Because i was ready to go. There it's a tough place to get to. It's not really mean anything. If i recall the you recall correctly this this airport was the smallest airport i've ever seen. And you take a little puddle jumper in there but the people that put it on were incredible. They were they were. They took great care in our next show was in denver and denver have weather from hell the next day so we had a hell of a time getting out of there but we made the show. Yeah yeah well.

When i started it was one night and we were like third on the bill on on on saturday night and then The promoter came to us and said we want you guys to headline a night. And i'm like what what what why i didn't i didn't think we could pull it off but The fans really of really latched onto it and they showed up in droves and drought ten. Twelve fifteen thousand people to it so we've We've earned our own headlining night. It's the only venue in the country that will will headline at a festival. But that's hours. Yeah well it's appropriate. I mean that's your home turf and it's appropriate and it's a great way to kick off the festival and i think the audience really appreciates it and it's become a thing and i think it's really cool that that's happened for you there and it was great to be a part of it for me to be out there again this year as well. So let me ask you about kicks before we talk about your solo record. As far as live shows are concerned. I mean fans have talked about a notice that ronnie is once again. Not playing with you.

"Yeah sorry i'm just guzzling a bottle of water ya know. I would love to talk about these guys because they are really just Rockstars in their own right and The other day. Marty was saying you know. Hey guys you know. I gotta catch early flight back home. There's a party going on for all bass players like all the biggest bass players in the music industry and job been invited and i wanna go to this party and they got tacos and all the bass players are going to be there. I'm like marty you are the biggest baddest bass player out of all of them. You are rockstar. Your own right and you know a lot of times people say to me. You know leader. If you could have anybody in your band if you could play with people who are dead rockstars like jimi hendrix. Of course you know who the hell would want to play with jimi hendrix. Just all these wonderful musicians who have passed along decades. Who would you want to have in your bandleader. And i always say you know what. I've got those guys. I've got bobby rock on drums. I've got marty o'brien bass guitar. And they've got patrick kennison lead vocals and guitar and these guys can't be replaced. They are just part of our family. And part of our team and they are the biggest baddest musicians out there that i could ever possibly be so blessed and so lucky to be touring with their great great people to. I know you could probably you could. I mean and. I talked artists about this all the time. It's one thing to be a great musician. But when you got a tour and travel and slug it out there on the road with with four five six other people you want to make sure that you can get along with those people. They don't annoy you and they don't drive you crazy because there's enough of that the road that without it coming from inside your band so having a friendly and working and loving relationship with the other people in your band is almost as important as them being competent players. Yeah yeah it's so true. It's so true. And and one sparks the other one fire sparks the other fire and we all spark each other and and it goes so deep our crew that we have to and we have a great crew. We have a great guitar technician and great drum technician. And and george marshall out there running sound and making it all happens for the fans. It's just pasta off the hook. And i'm so grateful to have these guys in my life i. I can't blessings everyday well. I was really excited and happy to see this news. Come out and george mentioned this to me the other day and of course we couldn't talk about it just yet until it went public but look i mean it to me. It's criminal that you the runaways. Not in the rock and roll hall of fame yet is just ridiculous to me however maybe a good sign a good step in that direction of it happening at some point is the fact that the rocker hall of fame is going to showcase one of your guitars which is awesome. So and you're going to perform at the at the showcasing of the guitar at the hall of fame in cleveland. So give everybody the story on how this came about what the guitar is. That's going to be exhibited and when it's all going down well The rock and roll hall of fame has been really good to us lately and In the last year year and a half before kobe you know they just.

Imagine that was kind of like really one of the first time in your life. I mean i know you were. You know when you're married you're disconnected and on the island for all those years but outside of that while you were professionally working. And as a touring musician which has been most of your life it had to be surreal to have the last year or so and have that taken away. I would think yeah it was. It was weird. And i saw it coming. I actually thought coming in. I had said to george our manager. I said to him. God i hope this isn't the end of the rock and roll world like this isn't the end of rock and roll because i wasn't sure and We were on this tour. We were on this Cruise ship and Five band canceled on the cruise ship. One of them was bret. Michaels and brent. Never councils anything i mean brett plods through anything and everything and and he canceled an and i was just like. Oh my god. What's happening in the world today. You know and so at the end of the cruise. They came back to us and and alice cooper's team said to us alice's cancelling and he's going to reschedule the shows and we were just like okay so we're getting off this cruise ship. We're going home and we're going to sit there and just wait wait it out and see what the hell happened with our lives and see what the hell happens with rock and roll and is rock and roll coming back. We don't even know so it was just you know so scary. I needed a year off. Honestly i i was tired and didn't know it and i. I had a few things like i needed to just eat. Good learn how to sleep and take a whole bunch of vitamins And then i'll then. I was just like okay. Well well now what. Now what do we do and so lead it.

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.
EV Used Car Values Are Holding Up
"So the altium battery cells Gm and lg's the nine they've given it to the platform more than just the cells or the batteries that made into recently. They've been calling it. The ltm platform and that is going to be the foundation for all of their electric cars and thanks to a youtube channel by ray non navia. We can now check the construction process of that facility. That's going up in lewistown. Ohio a joint venture between gm and lg. Like i say according to inside hof the construction work is already done. The buildings are up the reeves on on. But you can see the buildings going up and surely there is so much still to do. But within several months they are on target to have that facility finish. There is an unhealthy obsession with watching tesla build factories and the busiest aspects of germany. Right now is probably drones above some way just outside of berlin or maybe texas facility asli. They're all the gigafactory is being built. Gm's with algae is coming along very nicely baking. It'll be out of the oven soon. And they company will install manufacturing equipment later this year. Production starts in two thousand nine hundred twenty two the spending two point three billion dollars on it. It's going to create one thousand one hundred new jobs in lordstown ohio and they're gonna make about thirty gigawatt hours annually of cells which is huge. It puts them just behind. Tesla's gigafactory in nevada. Funnily enough okay. Let's move on and on the podcast next. We're going to be talking about what's fascinating story next on the show an official look into battery safety and that's not to say that batteries are unsafe in any possible way but the american. Nhtsa nitsa is creating and a battery initiative for visas to coordinate looking at things like the research the investigations and the safety standards around battery safety. And that's a good thing because you know these are incredibly safe like the comic is themselves and the battery. Maker's is an amazing job with this. I feel so safe driving around. Evt's and you just think about because we've had cars combustion costs for hundred years. You don't think i'm driving. I'm putting my family and my baby inside a car which is carrying around litas. Some gallons of very high highly combustible liquid blows up. I mean when you look at the fire department and the fire brigade stats on cough. Is they've really coleman. And so when there's an incident of course it makes the news because they're so rat but normal 'cause burned down all the time. So i feel very safe driving a navy if you're drive already but it's really good news. The nhtsa has created an initiative to look at the kind of coordinated analysis of data investigations. When there's a crash an anon- crash event and look at diagnostics and even cybersecurity as well. That's all very important. According to the website Techno codex this initiative nitsa that it will conduct investigations into safety related defects in vs and be a central point on battery safety. That's very very important. Lots of people are doing this. But i think it will give consumers more confidence.
A little-known threat: Infectious microbes in wildfire smoke
"Wildfire smoke can waft thousands of kilometers away from roaring blazes as climate change alters where these fires crop up it will also change. Wear the smoke. Settles i'm here with lita talk about her perspective in science last week which tackles what that smoke is carrying and how that impacts ecology and human health. Thanks for joining me leader. Thank you for having me. Of course. I want to get started with. What exactly happens after a major wildfire. These really big ones can sometimes impact air quality for what seems like weeks at a time when humans repeatedly inhaled this kind of smoke. What does it do to their health. It can cause a number of different types of repercussions both to pulmonary systems and cardiovascular systems. We have a good idea of there being a relationship between the amount of matter in an area and these health consequences. But the thing that we don't have any information about is the other component of the smoke. Which is the living component of the smoke. I had never thought about the fact that there are microbes. Living things being transported through this wafting smoke. What kind are usually transported. We've seen upwards of a thousand different species when we use next generation sequencing to understand the molecular composition of smoke. We've also seen that. Scientists have been able to culture a lot of different organisms from smoke so these include bacteria. Fungi people haven't yet looked at whether or not viruses are also transported this way but that is of course of interest but the studies that have been produced so far show that these organisms come from soils they come from plant surfaces and they also come from inside plants and inside decaying matter like downed woody debris on the forest floor or even you know something that is is buried in the top layer of the soil. It was surprising to me that the temperatures from the fire aren't actually in to kill these microbes. Could you talk about why that is. That is something that we have some hypotheses about the actual heat that is experienced at different scales is very variable. You could even think of it this way as know running your finger through a flame if you do it quickly. And it's just your finger you don't feel any pain obviously. If you're subjected to that flame for a longer period of time in its over a larger part of your body than the effects are going to be greater there has been. Some work published that that some of the assumptions that we've made in the past about how microbes respond to heating during fires is not really true. Late depending on the species have potentially a very high capacity for withstanding at least temporary heat transfer. They might also be in water droplets and so they might be protected there. It's very likely that they are attached to particular matter as well and they might find some protection in that particular matter.
"lita" Discussed on Ubuntu Podcast
"And this is now you know three buttons in a ui. Instal time excellent. Is there any plan to by police. The twenty four. maybe so Yes i think almost inevitably we will introduce this to a twenty four point release We lita policies work. And we've done this work in collaboration with the oven to serve a team who are using the same Underlying technologies in order to improve the way that you can authenticate surfer logan's and that was awful by microsoft full. That as your cloud deployments brilliant allen. What's up next gnome. Power profiles demon is apparently taking shape before better system and laptop power controls. What this basically means is there's going to potentially be some power profiles that you can switch between on your laptop between power saver if you want to sit the power from the battery and you want to get the longest possible battery life balanced if you want a bit of of intense pricing but also hopefully keep your battery and then performance if you're doing some intense working really care about battery life and apparently you'll be able to switch these. I think But potentially dynamically switch them as well. I'm not quite sure how how that's gonna work but i. I've always been very skeptical of these things. Because i've always felt like underneath the covers. This stuff should just work and you shouldn't have to as a human being fiddle with these power profiles. They always felt like a little bit of snake oil and not really something super useful. But i don't know. Maybe maybe i'm wrong. Maybe actually it is useful to be able to have the cpu never clock down. I always feel like you should allow the cpu to just clock up when it needs to and then clock down when it germans. The there's a lot going on. Which i guess is balanced but what are they doing power save to they. Just not rampant. Cpu up in which case you'll laptop feel slow all the time or i don't know if you put in performance mode Ramped up most of the time and therefore the battery dies and your family spitting on it. It just feels like a weird thing for human to interfere with yet this is. This is interesting because the project talked about like doing precisely what you describe which is automatically determine what the power state of the device should be based on what it's doing but that as a desire for us to be able to influence that at and this is will this achieves its broader than simply cheapening the cpu utilization it will expanding to preferences within the desktop to change the way that animations happen and things like that for example the way usb devices a managed and..
Interview With Stephen Lamonby
"As an engineer Steven Lamb designed navy torpedoes satellite carrying Rookus oil rigs special effects for Hollywood blockbusters films like saving. Private Ryan. Ryan's just to name. Finding him. So even though homes that earns me the right to get back to my wife and. That's my mission. To. Remove your helmet and tell me Your name. Name is gladiator. I will have my venues. Generous with his time he proved that so many times when he was working at solar giving up his time for free. After the lectures were over. With students who needed that extra tuition, he joined university as a part time lecturer in special effects and mechanical engineering. And he really does turn dry boring lectures because I've definitely sat through some lectures which are quite boring into exciting practical demonstrations. And is it true that you constructed a fake Russian tank and it was used on the streets of Saint Petersburg James Bond movie. Goldeneye? Yes, we did. Yeah. We did that. How did that come about? Because the Russians didn't WanNA. Wheel tank driving over the cobblestones. Smashing cobblestones up around the Mojica Palace. So we built a tank like a kid's toy which rubber tracks and underneath had wheels. So we'll take but not break anything and how did you get into the James Bond movie. To supply. Thanks. Okay, the power of tanks they you got the PUTT supplied. All, the military vehicles for Saving Private Ryan. Was Elvis choice for the James Bond Films. Thank you a sexist misogynist dinosaur relative to. James. WAISTBAND. Like boys with toys. I wouldn't single. Chatting, sophisticated secret agent shaken but not to stir, we're actually by the river. In Winchester as the people won't buy on a sunny August stay. And a lot of people didn't about you. Thank you very much for joining us software pleasure because of that private lunch last year. So perhaps you could set the record straight firstly in what context did you say the words Jewish people are among? The cleverest in the world. It came up in conversation. About Physics I've always an interest since I was a boy in astrophysics. because. I couldn't believe that one hundred years ago almost. Albert Einstein we're talking about such abstract subjects as light being affected by gravity. And he works out the speed of light, which was a phenomenal thing to do in the nineteen twenties. How did this man come to realizations about what actually control the will then what does control the world? And the whole universe that we live in? So. My interest was based on this philosophy. On physics. And when the lady Mico sleater told me that she was a qualified physicist and she was American. It was almost involuntary question for me to Oscar. She was Jewish and again, this was a private lunch at a private lynch over Cup of coffee. Now, it was also reported to say that you said that black men on the privileged needle help that they can get. Yes. I did say that. Because I've worked all over the world of work in Africa I worked in South Africa Mozambique worked in North Africa. And I realized that a lot of people in Africa are culturally disadvantaged. Cheaper to anybody else. But. The coach or they grow up in doesn't give them the advantages that we have in the West. And therefore, I was always prepared to give them extra help. In addition to this, it was reported in the Times by Phillips that you told Dr Burner. Most Nigerians did not have it in their DNA to be engineers. Is this true? Absolutely not true. This was one of the spiteful comments made by my course. Lita. In a fifth of of temper to get me set knowing. It would certainly get me ten. She also alleged other city things. Like that I was a totalitarian. Does, one become a totalitarian over coffee break. Did you say anything about DNA and African students I said nothing about ten not not an area of expertise of mine. I know nothing about it I only know that gets us by the police. In various reports, you read in the papers on I know nothing about DNA.

"lita" Discussed on KCRW
"Thank you and you know Lita Albuquerque this this makes me think a lot about your work a lot about the themes in your art and it makes me think of a story about your life I I think I mean I'm sure we could go back further but I I I remember that a couple years ago in a massive fire in the Santa Monica mountains you lost fifty years of artwork you lost your entire property everything you had created vanished within twenty four hours I was wondering if you had within half an hour within thirty within thirty minutes tell us kind of a you know in relation to what Stevens talking about here I mean this is something I think that has penetrated your work in your your consciousness pretty deeply yeah well you know I think it for me that kind of consciousness is is free throughout my life even in utero I mean if if I can be super personal yeah my mother attempted to abort me when I was in utero and so from the very beginning I've had this almost like this threat the help of of of dying imbedded in my in my cells and then that my whole childhood was extremely in bed and that kind of idea was put in a Catholic convent at the age of three in Carthage in North Africa wow and without parents so you know I was I did I mean I had god and I had the ocean the C. and I had nature and and then we my mother is from Tunisia and we we left when I was eleven years old and that was another rupture for me another death and I never is my father except in black and so I've had you know my life has been about the understanding of that so it does it is something that does seep into my work and then the I started out as a painter but then in the mid seventies I started doing these impermanent pieces these ephemeral pieces out in the desert with powder pigments that would get blown by the wind and and it was you know very much about really about what would that means you know and that what was important for me at the time and that's why we're trying green said did throw me off in terms of thought because what was important to me at the time was what matters is the trace of what remains in your mind it doesn't have to be material but that in the mind there is that mark or that pattern what's it like for you when you when you make those kind of pieces of ephemeral art when you see things kind of blow off into the wind what's that experience like the first time it happened it was not conscious I was not set to do have several pieces and and if the wind came and blew the peace and I thought oh my god what a disaster until I came back and I saw what I had in my photographs and I thought oh my god this is amazing then I started really going into that and what it's it feels like I don't have an attachment I just finished doing a piece in Saudi Arabia where it was two miles long of ninety nine blue powder pigment circles different diameters to align to the different brightness is of the stars above mmhm and that blew away in the wind and we had like three tons of powder pigment it's just it is like a human life is beauty to me it's about beauty it's about beauty and poetry and that's what matters and that's and that is is it's it's ephemeral yeah I think that's very beautiful and again all too soft in particular but it's commodified in galleries and so forth it's sold over something that is achieving a spire and stumbled across I permanence either as an object which then becomes a valued object or whole simply is something that does become recognized as being a great work ethic consistent form in human culture but some I always remember the practice that you find among started but Islamic center back where they make a sound among dollars they make these incredibly beautiful well as a large tables usually there about seven or eight feet in diameter and a very very carefully with digital devices they have this they create this highly complicated mauled very colorful image very very finely designed and and it'll drops of sound and then the whole thing is being completed and when they're done the necessary ceremonies and practices associated with it they just let it they throw it into the river instruction to this that slide and disappearing and does also a way of thinking about all the time really listening because it does show is use digestive lead at the the real potency of all lies in the traces the activities and consciousness and in our minds and done right in my own work you can call us I guess I worked with found materials that I then blue long sleeved collared stock and again full kind of wrote a formal letter saying but since I used found materials rubbish facing the streets right away I don't have a high quality pigments is cheap commercial prince three it's a paper and card of often being run over by a colossal all soaked in rain or sun and as I as I watched the movie the months and years that I have them around as they do great and then the colors so the fate of the whole thing is kind of a piece of all the too movement I don't want points I don't know when and I don't know which form that will then take he will probably fight to virtually nothing so it's a kind of a it's easy just altered motions it was onto movement it's not that somehow is slipping away from your cross much of the same way I sound on dogs disappeared into the Walton and there's something really beautiful about that there's something I I remember when when the wind came up so we had this huge wind storms I I honestly had not expected such wind storms in the the Saudi Arabian desert I am really interested in the notion of the elements expressing themselves right so the win it's it's allowing the wind to create allowing light to create allowing water because we are part of of all of that and to again to isolate ourselves from the environment whether it's rare expression or through how we live our lives I think it's what's made us come to where we're at today and and I think the pandemic has like you said Jonathan that it really has brought people to half to question and to look within I see there's a tremendous amount of people meditating and I mean for us as artists you know this is our lights I mean this is what we need to we are in isolation not completely obviously because inspiration comes from in this inspiring right taking in the breath inhaling breath without inhaling breath there is no exhalation so we do have to have the outer world but I think it has brought people down to their knees and awaits some with terror which I certainly understand and others with understanding that that's that's where they want to go where where they're being led to go which is the inner life and I thought what was beautiful about what Brian Greene talked about at the end was how he said about that the role of of the physicist is to eliminate not just to eliminate what is but to be part of the full story the the human story which is to melt together the objective and subjective story when he talked about his experience of the Dalai Lama and how the Dalai Lama told him yes we need to follow you we take the lead from you what what you're finding out in the in the objective world but then what has to happen is a subjective does have to come in and that's a question mark I think that's the company that that meeting point between objective and subjective is also the human and and that's that's where we we pivot around well as we begin to wrap this conversation up I want to end with this question of how we build meaning amid change you know how how we construct value knowing that perhaps all we have is the here and now which I think is really come into focus with this pandemic so leader as an artist how would you answer this well I think you you hit it on the nail incidents cited Brian in terms of that all we have really is the now and and as an artist I've been called one of my colleagues the queen of now in that I I I always talk about the idea of taking the present moment through the time space continuum and what I mean by that is I just focus on the time and date that this is the year twenty twenty in the city of Malibu in the state of California and the country of United States of America and the northern hemisphere and planet earth in the solar system that's in Ryan's the minor arm of o'brien's arm in the Milky Way galaxy next to the Virgo cluster galaxy next to the super great cluster next to the man at Cape Gloucester and then I take a moment and then go back down and then by then it's ten forty four AM and two presents the moment I think that and I think that's the greatest Buddhist traditions of really presents sing the moment and to teach people how to do that and it's that's that's what comes to mind yeah it's beautiful Steven I wanna I wanna kind of pose the same thing to you amid instability how do we build on what we have now we need to be able to find within ourselves the stability and the stability the we can find in many ways to log through meditation circles and stuff and clearly the the the challenge is how do I respond to this situation that's unfolding both personally as part of the community how do I respond and do do do do root so that responsiveness are effectively the imagination or whether or not we think in terms of all parties how can I picture to myself the kind of person I would seek to be the kind of community I would seek to create the kind of world I would try to inhabit and so although the central the blues at the present moment is is the crucible in which this challenge can be faced it cannot be isolated from what is gone before what is to come if we had to respond to something with it in a way projecting ourselves already into a time that is not yet here the the future I feel that there is a passion that might be stuck within the contemplative moment but I think it's a cheese meaning and value by creating forms discourses structures ways of life although will hopefully come to flourish at the time maybe long off to you and I and leader who call us I think we must be careful with this present moment system which I think is an incredibly useful corrective to our obsessions about the future in the past but at the same time we don't want to become in a sense sort of just solid cystic me locked into some hypothetical now there is really no present moment you can have a Seattle spotted it is incredibly elusive and ephemeral and it is in a way simply a matter speaking the allows us to relocate ourselves within the context of time a past time back to the Big Bang future time into whatever the worlds in the universe may hold in store for us also this present moment I think all this really is a kind of a full chrome is a kind of a a point of stability in the midst of instability a point of courage in the surroundings of fear and uncertainty in that enables us.
If we can mobilise around a pandemic, what next? Meet two revolutionaries already flouting the rules
"This ovid nineteen pandemic horrifying as it ease. Ease making us old. Think deeply about what comes afterwards about what out. Society will o'clock about what sort of society we? What's been really incredible? He's seeing how quickly the world can mobilize when it really needs to not quickly enough. Shore and the economic consequences are already devastating about four a behemoth of Planet. We have found a common purpose. Eradicating the pandemic. It's Natasha Mitchell joining you for science fiction and given all that. What could we mobilize around next if there was similar will mitigating climate change? What about the mountains of waste we generate as a species we flush freshwater Dan at Danny's landfill is piling up Arandas? Chana doesn't want out rubbish for recycling anymore and we throw out perfectly. Edible food by the ton make sense. No not really so I want you to meet to revolutionaries who have been well breaking rules to change. The world to me is a reflection of in particular in urban our society. That's not working. The fact that we twelve thousand years ago there was four million people on the planet and you sort of think so we take Melbourne and we better data across the planet and they probably created waste but it was Beautifully by the planet putting on being people on the planet and the same model. We exactly the same model now. It's clearly not an appropriate model anymore. We have a million tons of waste water a day in Melbourne. And what we do is we clean it up enough or we put it in a hole. We'll put it in the air or put it in the sea and we say our hope. The planet just fixes that problem and at some point probably when we hit a bad abi and people the planet's wasn't able to fix that problem anymore and so the model of waste that says that we can just put it out there and the planet will assimilated hall or in the Sea. He's finished so for me. Waste Rip presents a problem that we have to solve. That goes back a very long way. So it's hard to solve. I want you to make precipitated scales a chemical engineer and director of the particulate fluids processing center at University of Melbourne. He's a problem solver an inventor a makeup from water reuse and recycling to enormous batteries powered by your piece. Joost Becker is an environmental activist. Experimental End Artists to in two thousand twelve opened. The world's first zero waste RISTORANTE SILO BY JOOST. And they join me. As part of an event at the science gallery. Millwood's last pop-up exhibition called disposable. I want to talk about what happens when you try to challenge systems as they are to cleverly rethink how we use wise because what. We've got here people who do that and joost. You decided early on that you were going to respond to the the whole West Challenge and goes zero waste and not only that trying to open up a restaurant that was wholly zero waste. So what did that look like what most people do is? They see the waste product and then try and work out what to do with the waste product. I go back and look at the system if the system is generating something that is now used in the system needs to change. And so. That's what I did basically just change the system so the milk I spoke to a dairy fabric supply me and stainless steel cake so we developed like tap system we ground our own flow because we we have our own flower roll around oats. We spoke to winemakers about putting wine in kegs. One on tap might our own data everything that kind of generated waste but an even does myself. Yeah but this is much that has has come from that. I mean that was a forty two square meter cafe and it has caused ripples across the world is stuff going on in New York and in London in China and in South America. That has happened because of that cafe. Today I was sent an image of a Steiner Steel Keg and the farmer has worked for four years with the health department to try and get his keg approved now. Just my little cafe was like you know quarter of a million milk bottles or some crazy amount of milk bottles that we didn't need to buy that. My dairy farmer didn't need to buy that went didn't didn't need to purchase them and then I didn't pay someone to come and collect them and that plastic really copy restocked because he's got a fat coating from this animal fat on it. Which makes it really difficult to recycle it. So you know there's so many things and then in two thousand twelve the year on Harvesting was that was completely illegal but like my main sponsor was the city of Melbourne and had the city of Melbourne. Lago all over it and I thought if I'm going to get a crack at this I'm going to do it now. Okay so you're on harvesting in a commercial restaurant space. What were you doing because you're pushing the boundaries in all sorts of directions in this cap so people will come in and inspect building and go on my God. We had no chemical us. We had so much stuff this allies of things going on that for for people that were you know from the council checking to see you know. I had no plastic chopping boards and I had electrolytes water so water that came from was invented for surgery to clean hands and clean surgical tools in Japan. Twenty five years ago. It's basically water with salt and electric current goes through it and kills bacteria instantly us. Four billion gloves every single day that get thrown away which ended up in landfill which copy recycled and now here nets. No nothing so no bins no rubbish. We had like a little jam jar that showed there may capstone came on the kegs so I had to work to say. I don't want plastic cats on paper caps so they can go into our invisible composter so you can imagine how if you don't have been you've gotta work it out because you end up being left with stuff you know. We ended up having this board. That big of rubber bands because everything on the veggies and stuff in rubber bands but work with we were just talking about a with. Kerama on unlike a twin ball toilet so that Iran could be separated and stuff toilet applies to boys. Talk about in the toilets. Okay so so the so. This is the Iran harvesting story in this cafe. What did you do? And how did you challenge the health authorities big time? This was instilled in me by my dad. Probably account remember how it was maybe three or four years old so we were living in Holland and I used to go with my dad so he's veggie patch and be little like delft. Were little bottles. It'll all these little things coins I'd find one that had all this stuff come here in the solar we miles away from any any city or and he said we'll hundreds of years ago. Farmers would go to cities and shovel the human manure of the trenches to re fertilized their soil. Because you can't just keep pulling from soil so became caught assist with that idea and knowing that you know I don't know what it is some safe. Three percents is seven percent of the world's gases used to create a fertilizer a synthetic fertilizers. And I must say that. That fertilizer isn't even a good fertilizer because it doesn't actually narcisse soil properly. What we're doing is with mining soil. And we're not putting back what we've taken out so for me. It's like logical that we can't solve this problem unless we start looking at putting the nutrients that we've taken out back in. So what did you do with Iran in the restaurant so we use it on grain crops so use it to fertilize mustard crops in thousand and use it as a herbicide that we did all sorts of trials different levels to say what kind of facility was brought back to soil? We ended up with three and a half thousand Litas from a five-week pop-up.

Why Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace
"Over the past half century. Israel has built hundreds of settlements or Jewish enclaves on the land it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War of nineteen sixty seven seven. This land claimed by Palestinians for their future state which is why settlements are seen by many as an obstacle to peace the president of over four hundred thousand Israeli settlers living in the West Bank basically means that a Palestinian state cannot come into being is our Israel correspondent respondent Mason Jerusalem. Many of those settlements are stuck in between the main Estonian cities and towns so contiguous state cannot exist as long as they're there and their presence also means that it was obvious that so in effect they ensure that the military occupation of the Westbank continues the the announcement came just ahead of a key date in Israel. Today is the deadline for opposition leader. Benny Ganz to build coalition bowling. September's inconclusive election Prime Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu has already failed to form a government. Both candidates praised the trump administration's change in policy but the decision was America at odds with much of the international community. The international consensus regarding the settlements has been there in contravention of the full Geneva Convention. Attention which basically says that transfer or settlement of an occupied territory by the occupying power is against international law. And that's been the interpretation Shen of the Geneva Convention regarding Israeli settlements by most of the leading legal experts. There are some dissenting views of. Israel clings to those dissenting ending views in building the settlements. But that's been the broad consensus for decades now and so in that sense Mike Pompeo's announcement came as something of surprise. Well the competitive management didn't come as a surprise because certain elements within the administration were very pro Israel and pro the settlement lobby chief among them the US ambassador to Israel. Israel David Friedman who before becoming a master was both trump's bankruptcy la and financial backer of the settlements. They have been trying for the past three years to get a clear statement out of the administration saying that American doesn't see the settlements as being illegal and it has to be noted that in the past also the Reagan administration. Distraction made similar statements. So it hasn't always been one hundred percent clear what the American position on this has been. US public statements on settlement activities. In the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. The Carter Administration categorically concluded that Israel's establishment of civilian settlements was inconsistent with international law. However in Nineteen eighty-one president? Reagan disagreed with that conclusion. And stated that he didn't believe that the settlements were inherently l.. Legal actually most of the American administration's haven't even talked about the legality. They've called the settlements an obstacle to peace instead of diving into this rather controversial legal question so in a sense this kind of puts a finer point on kind of formalizes. Something that from the American standpoint had been kind of informally the case. What has been the case over the past three years? Because the trump administration had been very ambivalent towards the Israeli settlement activity previous administrations had condemned settlements especially the first Bush administration tried to limit funding to Israel while the tantamount building was going on the trump administration and some of its representatives have been much more friendly towards the past two years. The trump administration has made a series of statements and actions regarding the Israel Palestine conflict back in December seventeen nineteen. They announced that they recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital that in a few minutes later move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A few months ago we had the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. And in between these. We've had a number of steps. Was the Palestinians. We had cutting off of aid various Palestinian agencies to the United Nations nations agency which works with Palestinian refugees the closure of the Palestinian mission in Washington. All these things have put out a very clear signal where the trump administration restauration stands in the conflict. And even the timing of this announcement just a couple of days before the deadline for Bennigan's to form a government. Do you think it's connected to the current political the turmoil in Israel not directly connected to the current political situation for two reasons festival. It hasn't been times as some of the previous gestures were to help Out On the eve of an election other convenient junctures it doesn't seem to have been closely coordinating with Israeli government. That seems to have been something. which was it was very much an internal decision of administration? And do you think it's significant that it was Mr Pompeo who made the announcement. Well that's probably more about American politics in parents trying to show that he's not trump in many ways and loyal to some of trump's closest advisers. I think pump is also looking beyond the horizon of the trump trump administration and shoring up his own political bias. Perhaps his own run for the White House and this is a popular move among voters who he would also be relying upon one day if he runs for the candidacy and for the White House himself and now that Mr Pompeo has made this policy reversal. What do you think the immediate impact will be the speaking? Both Israeli officials Palestinians. No one's expecting an immediate impact even though they've been promises by Netanya before the last two election campaigns of going even further annexing parts of the West Bank. All those plans on hold because it doesn't a political deadlock there's no coalition in Israel. We have Netanyahu position bet against both failing instigate a majority Israel has been building settlements or the past fifty years regardless of what the administration positions being and on the Palestinian side. They've lost lost hope in anything. Good for them coming out. The trump administration long ago so for that. This wasn't a surprise. And they're facing their daily challenges whatever someone is saying in Washington it material to them but what about the prospects for grander scale change for the notion of annexation or in the other direction a meaningful peace process so the impact is perhaps lung It won't change anything the next few weeks and months. But when finally new government is formed in Israel. If it's a right wing government then the impetus to go ahead and AMEX parts. What's the West Bank will increase? Because now they seem to have a green light from the administration and even if the new government will be more central government under Benny Gansel some other interests lita. Yep It'll be much more difficult for them to justify so these ready public making any kind of changes on the ground baptists manning so because people will say them but the Americans okay so why make any of these changes if the settlements especially the ones which are deep within the West Bank or allowed to continue to grow that means the majority patient won't end either and any prospect of Palestinian statehood will be non-existent loop Israel basically in charge of one st with millions of Palestinians without optical rights and that's not the democratic say that Israel claims and takes pride in being so it's a situation which really is ready to have a solution Lucien right now and if anything compare announcement has made a solution for that even more remote

What Are The Traits Of Inspirational Leaders?
"Today i tackle as subject of traits of quality leads salina's that are amazing to me that what traits do these guys have in gaza and gaza goes will be <hes> as as many inspirational leader in the world some young some alda. Let me tackle some of the <hes> trikes delayed that are say amongst the leaders and dump. Let's kick off with number one integrity and these no nos vicinity quota but integrity an integrity is important because they site and then they do an short to maintain criti is the difference between what they do so people that have integrity will always do with us are they gonna do now in might not be something we locked in might be something we do like. It doesn't really matter. That's not what i'm tackling here what i'm tackling his that one of the great traits of of one of the great leader's is integrity. They will always do what they say they're going to do. Another one is resilience. There is the meta avenue tons get down. They get back up and they go go go and this is something that can be saying in great leaders. <hes> you know i eh with at a sports whether the politicians when they'd business whether there has wife househusband it doesn't really matter <hes> leadership taxonomy wolf forms and resilience is key pop to you know being a great leader now nixing tomase accountability accountability is bright ladens have the <unk> of accountability if the negative like they put the hands they they they don't the concept of winning and losing his team. You know this is something that is important. It's not when something goes wrong. It's somebody else's fault <hes> and when everything is right it's each it's the glory lady with the leader. That's not something that some great leaders do that always accept accountability an inspiring now bright and inspiring to me go hand in hand because bright people tackle adversity bryce. These people make that step and we know that if you don't make the stick things doesn't happen but at the same time they're inspirational in the way they do that so they're not bright bald an arrogant that brave an inspiring that willing to put themselves forward but they understand that they're inspiring people people like martin luther king nelson mandela. These people were bryant but there were some spotter. They went out there to buck the system that were there. They were bright on our inspiring in such a big kohl's addicting now. This is something that so important is adaptability. Leadership doesn't often talked about the adaptability isn't talked about often in the concept of leadership but great leaders not to attacked than to adapt when things are good than i had to adapt the things that they have this constant energy of the depth ability they make sure that they can adapt people to situations situations to people people etc etc compassion. Something that often doesn't get talked about in leadership is compassion. You know another way to put it. His empathy now <music> out empathy compassionate doesn't mean that you have to you know be sitting next to somebody crime it really simply to me is is the concept compassion and as you feel that you understand that you listen the compassionate they will apply the right outcome for the situation a great way to look at this. Is you know to to me. I know that i'm compassionate. What i'm saying is doing the best that they can with the resources at the half at the time attack me that today's a great way to to show compassionate is that you're willing to look the situation or whatever it may be and say is the best at the time with the resources of behalf and to make compassion is is obviously important trait of equality later the ability to look in the mirror and i talk about this a lot. Is that a lot of latest look in the mirror. They don't understand that they need to be leading by example that they need to make sure that it's different rules arabas in different roles for them. They need to make sure ooh what they what they're actually doing. You know they can look in the mirror and say hi. I n leaving. Do i believe i should be leaving acting acting the way. I believe i should be acting. This is something that's agassi. So important i mean we all look at people like bill and melinda gates amazing leaders in what they looking in the mirror yeah they wealthy very roughly however looking in the mirror and saying wait human and we want to show humanity by doing doing great things around the world and that's something that's obviously very very important to them. Just a dan in new zealand prime minister is different trick whether you like his policies or <unk> policies. That's not the point. The point is as a leader. She has this ability of looking in the mirror and saying i'm human and i will therefore for act with compassion with love and dumb you know with with anticipate so these are people that really really good another. Try is quality holiday. Leaders have the ability to ceram selves with people that challenge them now. A lot of people don't like that. You'll find that a lot of people dynegy like to surround themselves with people that challenge them rather surround themselves people that say this all the time whereas i believe quality leader has try surrounding themselves around of people that challenged aw and challenging them to be his visions of themselves challenged them when when things are not raw challenge them things ira challenged them on different different things that's not challenging for the cycle challenging you not pointing something apple someone just to the point of trying to be right but challenge to make can be a positive city challenge not not not doesn't need to be a negative challenge to me an idea lita is the one who has a positive attitude encourages to be positive even in across so the concept of challenging has to sickness it has to be about positive attitude has to be that encouragement it has to be you know eat when the times a dan that you had the ability to have people around that were challenging to ensure that they you performing at your best as a leader now you know some one of the great things around the world as a leader bono mate now cost later tonight then upon you know born alita. You'll make it's behavioral theory. It's the right carry yourself. The people you have around your mind sick because all of this putting self inconstant mindset mode is exactly really what it's about leadership skills that can be learned we can be learned by training can deliver perception can be practice and most of all it's my experience so leadership leaders are night for this reason because it is a city schools that can be learned by trying bucket section by practice and of course bike spirits approach the older we get the more experiences we have which builds wisdom so of course important is that as we evolve in get older when he to constantly evolve their mindsets and our ability so that we are learning so whilst we take our experiences and turn that into wisdom president we also have to make sure that we occurred because one thing i can't stand about setting lead is when they talk about doing this the twenty years and my rebuttal to that is but will you still be doing it in twenty years to come because as many brands in the past like kodak knock knock yet that will not get leaders that are no longer market ladies and some. I'm an even exist today because of that editor so touched on some of the heights today that make a great leader go out and be the best you can be identify unify what your own avatar looks like in terms of leadership. What is is brand. What is your brain. Look like when it comes to the word leader so when i say your name and later what what are the types they gonna say about you. You know visualizes write it down. Use the resources. Whatever it is pictures woods you know music. Whatever it is that will help the pick exactly exactly what you'll ever time looks like as lakes and what you want to be known for.

How Kim Jong Un is 'playing' President Trump
"Well. It's been more than a year since since Donald Trump and Kim Jong UN at Singapore and a month since they meeting on the North Korean side of the demilitarized iron. This is the first time a sitting U._S.. President has has ended the hermit kingdom. It was an extraordinary visual as president trump took the final steps north toward the line separating north and south South Korea a smiling Kim Joan walking briskly to meet him the first time a sitting American president has ever stepped foot inside the reclusive estate another handshake before the cameras will historic events to be sure but the jury is still out true Pyongyang has released U._S.. Hostages halted nuclear and until last week missile tests and signaled a willingness to at least talk about denuclearization. It's is a far cry from two years. AGO is an remember trump's foreign fury threats North Korea best not make any more threats to the united rated states they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never ever seen before thank you or rocket man's provocations rocket man should have been handled a long time ago the little rocket man. We're going to do it because we really have. No Oh choice in data one point North Korea's foreign ministry even warned Australia was coming within the range of the nuclear strike that said Pyongyang Anyang has hinted it might resume nuclear and missile tests if the U._S. South Korean military exercises continue well. Let's get an update on North Korea as well as its thirty five year old dictator from N._F._l.. Field She's been in Asia correspondent for the Washington Post and before that the Financial Times terms for several years she's being closer than almost any journalist to the North Korean regime having visited there regularly over the past fifteen years recent book is called the great successor the secret rise and rule of Kim Jong UN as published by John Murray when my colleague Hamish Macdonald Interviewed Food and a few weeks ago I actually rushed to the bookstore and I bought a copy of it and I have to say it's an absolutely outstanding book. Anna welcome to between the lines are thank you very much. Tell them what a great introduction. Don't do it often but it's very good now. Pyongyang's last nuclear test was nearly two years ago it lasts launched a long range missile all in November two thousand Seventeen Tissot a few short range weapons since then Donald Trump would say that's that's gripe progress. Isn't it yeah I mean He. I would say that that's great progress. I mean certainly as you said it's a shop change from where we were two years ago but I think this is all very tactical from Kim engines perspective and really he's been in the driver's seat the whole time he has been calling the shots here so through two thousand seventeen he was firing missiles at seemed like every second day he conducted these two nuclear tastes including one that was a demonstrably a hydrogen bomb and then in when he was ready at the end of November two thousand seventeen when he said he'd completed his nuclear program he was signaling that he was ready to. I'm back on this charm offensive that we saw over the course of last year and that's because he feels like he's in a position of strength now he he's showing that he's made astonishing progress with missiles and nuclear weapons and he wants to be seen now as the responsible and respected leader of a nucleus date and of equivalent to Donald Trump and she's paying and let me a potion and that's where we're at now in Washington has made it clear that it wants Pyongyang to make concrete steps steps towards denuclearization before it's willing to as I sanctions that limit North Korea's tried but you know until recently the consensus was that Kim Jong Hoon was was really a madman because he really wanted these nuclear weapons. is He really crazy. He has not crazy he has coldblooded and ruthless but he is definitely not a rational not a nutjob as president trump wants colt him and you know to point to the evidence for that is the simple fact that he he is still in power almost eight years on he's defied all the expectations that he would be too inexperienced and too young to take over this this regime and he's done it by acting in a very rational strategic way <hes> to take control of North Korea so a part of that is embarking on this nuclear program which enabled him to both fend off the outside world as well as kind of a AH show strength internally give the general something to be proud of gives the ordinary people something to be proud of and they are proud of it. North Koreans have told hold me that there are especially proud that have managed to do something that <hes> South Korea and Japan have not been able to do so this is like old pot of his is plan I think and and now the face to of that plan is this charm offensive that we're now into try to be seen as an international statesman to be the <hes> you know normalizing his leadership and coming out into the outside world and most of all now he's turning to the economy and trying to develop L. at North Korea's very very backwards and decrepit economy because he knows that that's where his legitimacy could have trouble that if he is not able to show the people of North Korea that life is getting better under his leadership he may begin to have trouble keeping crowded you along kimes primary goal here is survival but let me put this to you. Anna surely the only way the North Koreans Happens <hes> no way whatsoever that he feels he needs them for his security. <hes> you know when he was taking over just two months before he took over the leadership of North Korea Moammar Gaddafi was dragged out of a ditch and Libya and beaten and killed in a very brutal way that must be seated on Kimberlin's uh-huh brain that this is what happens to a leader who strikes a deal with the United States to give up their nuclear capability so I cannot say anyway he would relinquish everything but I think he may relinquish. Something and I actually think president trump's doing the right thing here. It is time to talk to North Korea because decades needs of isolating North Korea have not solved the problem of isolation has allowed North Korea to develop nuclear weapon so you're in agreement. He said that in the trump era it's clear that the political consensus consensus including in Washington it's come around so trump's view that talking to North Korea is a good thing but could trump shift the consensus further if he decides Washington can actually live with a nuclear North Korea well. I'm not sure that Washington has come round. There are many detractors in Washington and of president trump's approach and many skeptics about denuclearization but I do think that this current phase is the right approach to be taking because we should be engaging with North Korea. There should be some progress here. You know maybe they can't get them to give up his nuclear nuclear weapons that you know they can get him to stop firing them. That could get to stop threatening them. You know if there was more engagement with North Korea the people of North Korea would have more exposure go to the outside world be able to open their eyes to the truce which they get precious little off in North Korea so there are lots of benefits to be had there that you you know not necessarily denuclearization per se that is a very very tough thing to reach but there's a lot of wiggle room between nothing and full utilization so Kim plying trump here. He's he is getting all the attention but he's conceding nothing yeah in many respects. He is playing trump. I mean trump is waxing facing lyrical about Kim jong-un explaining why the human rights abuses talking about how they fell in love assures an opinion that Kim Jong UN does is not share Kim's on pragmatic about it but can learn his won him over without having to do anything at all other than show up. You know it's old style. Dale no substance so the question is how long Kim Jong and can continue to string donald trump along like this. He knows that Donald Donald Trump is a very unconventional American president. He's unlikely to get anybody else like him again. So if Kim Jong UN is going to cut any kind of deal he needs to do it while Donald Trump is power and actually one of the things I discovered in the course of reporting this book was that the North Korean diplomats in New York had actually gone to visit a very very famous Korean fortuneteller in Manhattan to us as president trump would be reelected. That's how concerned they are but how good is the word of the United States because as as you will know the George W Bush administration did a deal with Gaddafi that he relinquishes nuclear program and yet Bush's successor. Obama helped sleet if it's to topple Gadhafi well. That's why I think that Kim Jong will never give up his nuclear weapons because that's the thing about democracy right we change. Litas is so he cannot be assured than whoever succeeds Donald trump whenever that is will stick to the same line so yeah. He's not giving those up. My guest is n._F._l.. I feel she's the author of the great successor the secret rise and the rule of Kim Jong on intriguingly the U._S. subtitle for the book is the divinely perfect perfect destiny of brilliant comrade Kim Jong Un. Let's turn to your book because clearly this is a secretive and paranoid regime that makes it very difficult to find reliable information about king John on now based on your research including interviews with defectors and members of the family. What can can you tell us about Kim. Yeah I sit out to talk to every person who never met him are to be able to put together this portrait of him and the picture that emerged this child is person who lived such an ebb normal antisocial life came from such a dysfunctional family emily. There's really no way he could've turned out any differently from the ruthless person we see before us today as a when he it was growing up in North Korea's little princeling he lived a life of absolute luxury but also of isolation in these royal compounds that scattered around North Korea he had xbox games or whatever the equivalent was then and imported food and watched movies and and his own zoo his father had a car adapted for him so you could drive it when he was a small child so he wanted for nothing except for friends he had no friends he did not go to school. He had a Tutu came to the house. He didn't even know his half siblings from his father's other relationships so he he just had his only tuneful siblings. That's only at to play within that led him to latch onto anybody he could and one of the people who became a kind of playmates inmates to him when he was seven years old was this Japanese Sushi chef who I interviewed several times in Japan and he had gone into the household there and Kim John had let sean to him and he used to the shift used to take him fishing and flying kites and they listen to Whitney Houston on the shapes Walkman way back when in an <hes> you know he he really was starved for company and so then at the age of twelve he went to the Swiss capital of burn to go to school there and the idea there was that he should be able to live something of a normal life so he did go to school. He did live you know as the son of a diplomat so he was able to have friends and enjoy going swimming in the French Riviera and eating pizza in Italy and all these kinds of things that an expect hidden Switzerland's can enjoy but even there he struggled partly because of language <hes> festival studied in

'Possessed' woman was actually battling brain illness linked to growth on ovary
"In her brain. Like left turn from my ovary to my brain. The odd more like a straight up. But yes. Connect, but okay, so bizarre. And the story starts it's told by Stephen Gutierrez who is Lorena lorraina husband Llerena, Lena's husband. And he told news agency, quote, I was so scared. It was like she was possessed. And then he continues his story. It starts after they went to the ER. So she'd already been showing symptoms, and he said the night after she came home from the ER we were up the whole night. She couldn't sleep and she was talking gibberish. She kept saying we need to get out of here. We need to leave. She kept getting up and trying to leave the house. So she was acting crazy. He thought she was possessed. And then Stephen Gutierrez says doctors asked if his wife had been drinking are using drugs and suggested that you might be experiencing a nervous breakdown or depression, which again as a woman, I feel like the idea that you were just going to go to the doctor with some symptoms, and they're going to tell you that you're overreacting or that. You're depressed too often. We'll in more informally like she. She clearly didn't seem to be in her, psychological, right mind. But they let her go home from the Arctic. How crazy do you need to see where they're like? No. We wanna keep you up survey. Shen? Exactly, so. Yeah. Ladies fight for your healthcare. Anyway, continuing Stevens said again quote during her psychiatric consultation. She took a swing at me. And we had to hold her down. It was so out of character. It was then she was admitted to the psychiatric hospital at one point. She threw at one point. I threw a little bit of holy water on her and afterwards. My family told me they wouldn't have been surprised if for head start spinning around after I did that. He really thought she was possessed eventually the renew lost the ability to talk walk or eat independently and was not responding to treatment. She's thirty nine years old. She was then transferred to the Presbyterian hospital where doctors diagnosed her with anti n m d recip- for limbic autoimmune and Safaleh litas. Wow. That's had to practice that one before we started. And this is an autoimmune disease that had caused her brain to swell, which is crazy again, my ovaries to my immune system to my brain. Like, I get everything bodies connected. But can it all be connected in a way that works? Yeah. It was a leap her symptoms were on power diagnosis this disorder. Typically strikes women more commonly the men, and once it is diagnosed doctors, then look for an underlying tumor as the root cause. So apparently, the tuber is always the cause of this disease, which crazy apparently she had developed the disease as response to a six inch by six inch tumor that had developed a one of her ovaries. That's a big tumor on your over yet small not I don't I mean, I guess over right near you know, the part where you actually grow a baby. So I guess room to grow there. But six five six inches is you'd think someone would have noticed physical there. Right. Yeah. She underwent heavy steroid treatment. And a treatment called plasmapheresis all in an attempt to clear her body of the antibodies that have been attacking both tumor and her brain again, an autoimmune disease, so her body was attacking herself and harming herself Llerena has said over the course of three months, underwent speech therapy. Physical and occupational therapy. But I don't remember much of it. It is a blur right now.
What's going on with New Zealand's National Party?
"This is bizarre. Unprecedented kind of up. Heave is going on the national party in which the chief whip has resigned. After he was put on gardening, leave over some health issues. It's quite a complex story, and then the this report came out. I think it was US talking to about this big leak saga this this report. Seventy is the start really know how to how to set up. But there was this expenses leak to some journalist in New Zealand about how much money that the leader of the opposition Simon bridges had been spending on getting around the country on those get to know me to need spin it with something ridiculous, like a hundred thousand dollars in a month on limos and show food drivers and stuff like that. Anyway, that was leaked to the media. This huge big witch hunt started. And this report finally came out saying what we'd actually don't know who who did it, but the most likely person is Jamie Ross loan. Behold, he's the chief whip of both going to war. He's been kicked out of the national party, but he was like, well, I'm going to resign first. And then he gave this one out on prese conference in which he absolutely winked to town on Simon bridges. Ebb -solutely went to town school them, corrupt. He made all of these allegations cities unfit to be the to the, the prime minister on to be the leader of the opposition NC should go. So it's cool. Hold. A drama. It'd be thing to be a journalist in the Newseum parliament at the moment, the in house lawyer for every news room in the whole of New Zealand's. He may have taken that press conference live exp-.
