Germanys digital identity landscape with Verimis Roland Adrian

"Hi roland oscar. Nice looking with you on and really happy to hear what is going on in germany in terms of identity in or ever seen related to that and happy to know more about very me very baheren hearing berry meal ready for the last year. San diego need to hear more details. What are the are building offering today so. Please tell us your journey how. You became the managing director very me. Yeah thanks you can. The many thanks for the invitation. Let's here and talk to you a little bit about the markets in germany. So yeah what was my journey becoming managing director of very me. Actually my journey professional. Johnny started twenty five years ago. When i started my career in consulting. Then some stations cashed out which is a department store group. And then i founded multi-platinum loyalty scheme together with start at telecom and from there. I moved to payback. Which actually is janis leading multi partner loyalty scheme. They are quite some markets worldwide than india mexico italy. Us and from all the travel. I got introduced to lose tons of course and became the ceo of lufthansa mice and more during that time. Actually i realized that the future is more. And more about seamless customer experience. Because if you look at lofton's in many cases the real loyalty benefits that you can get there. They actually translate into a real seamless customer. Experience that you get you look at all the tracks for security and immigration priority boarding presort seating in the plane actually the customers tend to reward benefits in their experience much more then any loyalty currency and so at the moment where then lufthansa invested into very me idea for me. It was very clear that this would be an exciting next step for me personally. So i decided to switch over to meet to be the ceo of me and push forward at digital identity to provide seamless customer experience for the users and i can induce that lufthansa is one of the funders organization behind very me. But let's more place for the ones who are not familiar with very still bear me does. In fact lufthansa there's actually one of the investors and we have altogether thirty very large companies in germany that invested into the very idea and a lot smaller companies are really known brand. Names such as liens deutsche. Bahn dot eubanks lufthansa dodger taylor com dime la some song fox button so all very large companies that invested into very me to establish of wallet of digital identities so that was the driving force and i think when we will talk about the market later on we will see that it was a very good moment to invest into such platform because the market urgently requires the platform and there's pretty much empty space currently in germany. And what we provide as bury me as this one click digital experience for very fight identification was in a pop. Misuse cases and at the core of it on is an identity platform. Of course that matches all the regulatory requirements for our anti money laundering or either substantial. And this comes along with the solution for strong customer syndication because the critical part of such a platform is not the identification of customer itself. Actually the critical part is the reuse. And that means the access to the digital identity

A Proposal To Burn Ethereum Transaction Fees

"So a proposal to ben a theory of transaction fees. This is coming from an e. Ip which i will link in the show notes feliciano e ip stands by theory improvements proposal. So now i'll do is. I'm going to read just the abstract on the summary from this thing. And then i'll give you my comments on it. So i actually came across this on git hub. This thing. was originally created in april two thousand and nineteen and has been in development since then and this is all according to harvard and give hope they've logged all of their calls developing development team and if the regulating the less meeting they had on this particular thing was The thet december twenty twenty. So this roy up to date in fact the less meeting that they had at the summary notes for the goal from the december he says generally feeling is that there was enough robust analysis and research with this improvement to begin discussing the next steps in the process i e how to move forward introducing too old cord avs and the theory of maintenance exciting. So that's how close they says to going onto the maintenance right. I think perfected over the of the last year or something booked with talking yet. So they're improvement. Proposal fifteen fifty nine fee market for one point out so. This is an improvement for the existing chain while ago gates shoes on so the simple summary is this is a transaction pricing mechanism. They includes a fixed pad block network feet that is bend and dynamically expands or contracts block sizes to deal with transient congestion. So what does that mean the problem. We have right now. They've got a difficult forming problems with the existing model. The fed will quote is a mismatch between volatility of transaction fee levels and the social cost transactions. The basically say that you one minute. You can have a Network free that's two hundred times what it was a minute ago right depending on just massive spikes in demand for network resources and stuff like that which seemed ridiculous. It's completely unpredictable. At second problem. Is it ends up. With needless delays for uses so does no good as socially unproductive as they call it. Where was the slack in the system to meet block by block demand while that would be met by so the listrik book sized that goes up if the blocks full and goes down if the blocks unfaithful pretty sweet scandal like the big oin difficulty. Adjustment mechanism is for blocksize. Rather than mining difficulty kind of kind of climate also says the problem is the inefficiencies of first price auctions. So what that means. Is that The minute of its to use sophisticated algorithms to estimate what fee to charge the uses of the wallet. And even though they're you know that just doesn't work. Right you end up overpaying the fee or you think you can get confirmation fifteen seconds and it takes three minutes and then you have to submit the transaction again with a high of face. Just it's just a mess right. And then the third thing is they will they call the instability of blue with no block reward. And they say well think about in the long run blockchain bitcoin. They intend to switch to rewarding minus entirely on transaction fees. You know when the bitcoin blocker would reaches next to nothing and they said will there were no issues with this kind of thing instability and so on selfish mining attack vectors and does no good solution for this at present. So what they're proposing to do is twofold one is have. This elects the block size thing where grows books of fold and shrinks of block saw you know novel and then also introduced a different pricing mechanism for transaction fees which would be that would be to to transaction fee going forward one would be this fixed a transaction fee pueblo. Which again go up and down with the blocksize. So you pay that and that base based transaction fee pet blog which would be absolutely known that would get burned right so like i spent boom johnson. Then if you wanna make sure that said your transaction gets into the blog than you can include an additional minor. Bribe as they call on top of the base fee said the minor didn't get any of the because we know that gets burned but they would get the minor bribe and the block reward so they still get two sources of revenue. The blocker would that remains the same They get the minor bribe and then they base fee gets burned. Okay well you might think well as because she's gonna cause the same problem as we've got now no it's not because was different now. Is that the book. Size is going to expand and contract so even if you don't include a minor bribe your wallet will know what the current fixed block transaction fee is and it will know what the next one is as well. So that means that in your wallet when meta mascow. Whatever will you're using. It will be able to quote you very precise transaction fees and the predictability of how soon that will go through and get confirmed. He's also much more set in than is now so that's does really right. You want the detail on how this works. Technically they've even got technical specification and a bunch of solidity code solidity code of how this will work including houses going to be backwards compatible. And how do you order. Transactions and blahdy blahdy. Bob so does that well. If you want my comments on this area. I think this should have been the design of a theory from day. One in fact. When i stood at dairy month old. This was high worked. A thought will gas right. if it's fuel surely is being burned and destroyed and took me quite a while to find out that that wasn't the case to find out the miners. Who gained all these fees on the blogger would which i four was bombing. The second thing is that if this does get implemented nobody does. It will be a massive economic boom for the theory token as an a theory in token hold. I'd be well pleased with this. Especially this would have a big effect on theory and stop the flow ratio. Which of course is top of my mind right. Now since i'm studying under safety and moose and his new book fiat standard. I'm a fan of the standard at any way. But you know that's what sir. I'm studying day to day right now. So i'm always thinking slow. Soaked floor ratio so this proposal would mean that the stock of a theory and will be constantly being reduced to offset some of the inflation for the mining rewards at the minute. He's just constantly inflating with booker woods. there's no destruction. there's no system level destruction anyway might accidentally send some their into the wrong address or whatever but the system doesn't doesn't create any deflation and this would do so on that point while we're talking about you but if i go to f gas station dot info it does have a leaderboard of the biggest guest banners right so actually lofton's articles the the They put on. The side is cold gas burners but as we know until this is implemented this proposal they don't banning gas at all alley just fees going through the contract to the minus with the number one. Let's call him guest bene- right now on the network is the union contract and in the last thirty days the amount of transaction fees going through that contract is twelve point. Seven million dollars worth of ethereal. Oh near enough to day. Two thousand f has been spent on transaction vs pretty significant amount if this proposal was implemented that would mean that in the last days unique swap would be responsible for destroying the two thousand ethereal just brilliant bending they two thousand theorem just from the fees that uses paint to use union swamp great and then tether another twenty six thousand theory would be banned in the last days because of that. So if you wanna in theory times these they say two thousand if theory of the what would ban twenty six thousand. That ted would ban if you want in. Us dollar terms it means units will be bending fifteen million dollars of theorem everyday days and tether will be betting ten million everyday days. I think those would go though. Remember is the capacity of the network would increase with this elastic book size so every time a block is full the next book slightly bigger so absolutely balmy so when when when the network is congested well more transactions go through every book which means more theory and guest band so the busy of the network is the more fees get panda. The big of the fees is self fulfilling prophecy. So i'm of course i'm talking from an economic point of view. If you're in a theory of togo you'd you definitely want this to be implemented because it it. It makes a theory more scarce doesn't it because it's bending the stalk of a theory all the time

Toronto Average Sold Prices are UP 213% since 2010

"Toronto average soul prices have gone up approximately two hundred and thirteen percent since twenty ten. Okay that's the last decade in the last few days be mo has predicted ten year unprecedented bull markets. And again if you're not from a background of money and you had to teach yourself financing. Like i did at sixteen with the personal finance for dummies book. Yes that's the only way that i was going to learn anything about it. Rsp's real estate stocks bonds. It was all thankful Thanks to the library. That i know any of this stuff right now and i'm still not an expert. I'm still learning on a daily basis. However a bull markets bull and bear markets are characterized by how those animals fight abol will raise its head when it's in a fight. A bear will put its slackest. Pause down one's a fight so that is the essence of that. So what be emo is predicting as an unprecedented ten year bull market so a market. That's going up And there are examples in the past where this has happened right. After the depression there was a few Really great years. And i've got a feeling it's going to be the same. Obviously we could all be wrong. I know some of the predictors have been wrong in the past. That's another reason why you have to do step three so step. One is just understanding Again at toronto prices have gone up by that much. Will they go up that much again. I go. I will never promise i've doing this now. Since two thousand in two thousand the prices were two hundred fifty two thousand okay. So if i was to do those stats for you. The be a lot more impressive. So i'm just giving you the last ten years. It's obviously way better for those of you who own longer. You've got a lot more invested in there for the next ten years. Where are you going to leverage that. Where is it going to be growing at. Its best rates. It might be in where you live now but it might not be. You might need the trade in that property and do something better with it. If you're in a condo or lofton you want a house something that might keep you income something that might secure you from future job losses give you income potential. All that stuff now is the time to talk to me. So this is what step three is about is just know where you stand. I'm not telling you and no no adult once once you've signed those once you've signed that agreement of purchase and sale at whatever age. You do Again you're the you're the one deciding dis-decision so it's never gonna be me or anybody else who's telling you what to do. I'll give you a vow give you again. Good advice on what to do. But you'll be the one deciding number three is just know where you stand. Just start off by going to gold dot real estate. Podcast show dot com to find out if you are in the gold zone. Why not if you're already there. Then you know where you stand. And i'm not telling you that you you might even not need to move but if you're not in the goltz on you're in a property that gives in performing at its best. Why not at the beginning of a potentially ten year unprecedented bull market. Why not start in the right place. Something that's going to really do something good for you. And when you look at your goals and i don't know if you do this but this is also something i've learned on the job is if you write your goals for twenty twenty five and twenty thirty as if you've already achieved them it does something to how your goals are met. So i want you to achieve those goals whether it's How much money you want in the bank or how much equity you might be wanting to sit on in the next few years And just to make sure that you're not for any reason in a position where you aren't you know you're paying two thousand or something more per month you wanna make sure that you're looking at some potential growth over the next five years Rather than again just giving all of that to a landlord no offense. There's nothing wrong with ranting but right now with interest rates the way they are A lot of your landlords are making money hand over fist again because of the The interest rates being so low so even without an increase in in rent. They might be making more of that. Rent me more making more from you even with the same amount of money.

Remembering Eddie Van Halen with Steve Gorman

"Joining me now is Steve. Gorman who was the drummer in the Black Crowes who now plays with trigger hippy and before we talk about some of the Black Crowes stuff in your book I. I saw tweets even it was talking about Eddie Van Halen, which is Kinda. Why you here you say there will be many many words written and spoken about Eddie. Van. Halen, over the next few days, weeks, months and years those millions of words will never come close to expressing what he meant a rock music what he meant to guitarist and what he meant to the guitar itself that's pretty powerful statement Mr Gorman what did Eddie and remind me to rock music I. Think it's it's pretty simple. You can say that he and Jimi Hendrix of the two guys. That truly, and and only the two guys that moved the needle for the guitar itself I mean Hendrix. came out of a blue based. seem. And took the playing and the tone he could get to a new place but even hail and. Really almost came in from another country. Another planet I should say another he's like an alien life form I mean, he was a virtuosic player obviously but he He reinvented what what you could do is to guitar and the fact of the matter is this. Like Hendrix. But even to a greater degree, anybody tries to play like Eddie. Van Halen. Just sounds like a mind a mimic they. It's like rich little doing Johnny Carson okay. Yeah. That kind of sounds like him but. There's nothing nobody's ever been able to do any van. Halen. Did it make it feel a certain way? That each just the and he was that way at twenty two I mean, this is this is not a guy like it's not like David Blaine magic tricks where he gets bigger and better every year he started with card tricks that other people did I even Halen hit the ground running with Van Halen one playing an instrument that have been around for centuries unlike anybody else had ever done I mean he was on the Mount. Rushmore. Of Great Depar- players. At twenty two years old and then, and then he stuck around for another forty years still playing unlike anybody before sin. So I just think that in terms of. You know. Sheer unique. Mindset ambition combined with just. Great talent obviously. But but also phenomenal work ethic I mean he's just a complete unicorn in every sense of the word. How would you describe his guitar sound and I say that I know what I think of it but I wasn't I just messed van Halen like I came around right as you guys were blowing up honestly so that for me the van Halen was slightly classic rock slightly old rock to me as A. Kid. So as someone 'cause, you're just years older than I am but how would you describe his guitar sound someone who was in in it and living it in love and Van Halen? Well I can tell you that that was thirteen years old the first time I heard Van Halen and I remember it. I remember where I was I remember who I was with. It was going home from school in Hopkinsville Kentucky. You really got me there kinks the you know the their cover, the kinks song came on the radio. And and it was playing already and I said, Hey, mom turn that up. It was me and my mom and my friend Brooke. Lofton. The three of us in a car and she turned it up and I my first thought was. That must be like a live version of the king song and I was thinking like we don't they don't rock or do they. But when it hit that Solo and then by the time, the song ended I realized well, that does that's not ray Davey seeing this is clearly a cover version but what on earth is this and it was like making my? Hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is a time when I thought punk rock was the coolest thing in the world. and. The truth is Van Halen was more punk than the punks because they were truly breaking down a bunch of barriers if you will or they were going in their own. You know there hasn't been a band like Van Halen since led Zeppelin in terms of. Rock band hits the ground running at full steam and it obliterates everything in their path in a certain sense and. Jimmy van Halen sound it sounded like California was in my head. You know soon as I realized soon as I heard about them, they're from La, and as soon as I saw David Lee Roth and then as soon as I heard more than you know the next thing I heard was eruption Guitar Solo and you know hearing just two pieces of their first album and seeing what they look like it just. It felt brand new and it already felt like they're going to be around forever. You just knew from the jump and this is me as a thirteen year old kid who is obsessed with music. This band is one of the Alzheimer's like there's nothing like this and they all have the chops and the other thing too as long as I'm just rambling incessantly any van Halen was a great rhythm player. It wasn't just about the Solos he led the band rhythmically and he's also it needs to be noted not that it's not obvious. He's a hell of a songwriter I mean he really was. As I said before he's a true Unicorn I mean, just just nothing like it. What does this sound like do you? It sounds frequent and right in right in the zone near your your key. That's one thing because listen I played a little bit I don't play even as good as my friends who are real life musicians, but it's perfect frequency and frequency is in the tone or the, but as because it's a lot. I mean Brad Paisley plays unnoticed Brad. Paisley. Because I hear the chicken Pickin I hear a very distinct sound and again I didn't catch van Halen as it was happening in my childhood. But when I hear Van Halen Song even if I, it's I, don't know who it is. Just hear the guitar part I hear the Eddie van Halen because I how fast he shreds but the pattern that he does it, you can just tell. By By his fingers and it just kind of again it's hard to explain when you ask about music but that's what I think about and I try to. Always try to. Prepare analogies and most of the people who listen to this podcast here between twenty to forty, and if you were to make an analogy to another band, it's GonNa be tough because Van Halen was massive. But who later on had the kind of? Impact or. Reflected the mass listening that Van Halen had well. What band what yeah. What band can we look at now or in the last ten years and see? Okay. Well, that's how big Van Halen was to the people that were the kids in the eighties.

Protecting Your Spiritual And Mental Health During the Coronavirus Pandemic

"My Name's James Bottom Nama therapist bringing healing to the world. Hi My name is Camilo Lofton. I am a specialist and I am working to take on capitalism and patriarchy. Mindfulness practice at a time. Sorry not sorry. Thank you both for being a part of sorry. Not Sorry I wanted to have you on because people are struggling right now and I don't think we're talking enough about the mental health ramifications of this collective pain that we're experiencing so I really want to start with the question of just. What is the psychological toll that this is having on us and especially what about those on the front line that doctors the nurses the first responders a think with those people that they actually have training to deal with this? I think that they have a purpose. And they're working with what's in front of them so I think with people with doctors what they're in frontline people how they're going to suffer is energetically an immense toll on them to be constantly taking care of other people. And it's this deluge that they can't saw. I think that's going to be very difficult for them. I think the greater crisis for people is going to be that the people in the population general population. We moved through trauma by finding purpose in trauma and has a long-term sometimes decades thanked on things like relationships into the work. Consider normalize my fear. Is that especially with all of the messaging that there's not a single message on how we're supposed to move through this and I my fears that people aren't GonNa find purpose right. That people are GonNa stay at home and focus on what they're missing out on the fear rather than finding a collective healing conscious and when people are not talking about that right when we don't have people in the mainstream media talking about that. I think that it almost has that feeling of what's wrong with me clearly. I'm the only one talking but we're feeling this way because nobody's talking about it and I think that that can be a really lonely place to be into. Is that feeling of. I'm the only one that is this anxious about what's happening right now or I'm the only one that's depressed about what's happening right now. Because we're just ignoring psychological toll that this is taking her sure and I also think that part of the issue too is that in general those who are day. We don't invite in in variety in fear and depression. We tend to keep ourselves busy. 'cause that's capitalism asks us to do is turn turn turn and so we we tend to collectively as push all of those fears and anxieties and worries aside and so in all of the sudden we have nothing to do that and all of that stuff has now come to the surface. We almost have no choice but to look at it and yeah that can be incredibly overwhelming and when there is no sort of collective response to what that in due to a person and what that can do to a society for sure there's going to be ramifications for it in spiritual work we call this the shadow war and every spiritual tradition speaks to shadow work on some extent or on some level but collectively as a Western society especially here in the states. We haven't looked at this. I mean this is a complete undoing. If you will the toll is going to be big and so it's like what do we do? What do we do with that? It's interesting because looking at my children right who I think we all as parents at least the way David or apparent we've kept our kids really really busy right. I mean they have sports they have you know. My Son has drum lessons and hockey and now to well this is a couple of things to see him sit and have to sit with potential fear or any anxiety or not feeling good about himself or whatever it is to see him have the sports as a way to exert that just to use for a coping mechanism. The fact all of his coping mechanisms have sort of been taken away. I would imagine a lot of families are feeling this way. We're we're looking at our kids especially are active kids and we're noticing. What a drastic change. It is because our kids are just not having that coping mechanism of going outside and wrestling around boys that social wrestling and playing the sports and everything. And it's made him actually a lot more self reflective. I've seen a lot more creativity sparked and I was. I was Gonna say that same thing. I think what we're all learning is a couple of things mine. We can't rely on this administration or other media sources to solve this straight to. We have to get created in our own homes with ourselves individually within our families amongst our community. We have to search for that creative response to move through this. Go Ahead James. One thing is I just from speaking with so many people friends clients. Everyone's worried about their children. And one thing I've found is that actually children are highly resilient. They seem to be doing well when every person I asked like. Oh just like you said. My kids are being more creative more. Inventive that those certainly a bit of boredom. But they're not suffering adults are the ones who we've tried to always be productive where only valued on what we're doing it dolts that are really suffering by just sitting and this not losing the other thing that I've noticed about the kids which I think is pretty special as they've gotten closer because they're they're all each other has right now as far as playing and that's really really beautiful. I WANNA get to adults in a second but I have one question about how best to speak to our children about this time. Is it better to protect their innocence or to be honest about you? Know the fear factor. What do you think I think the best thing that we can do for? Children is one to be honest because to be honest with them about what's going on is it gives them a sense of self esteem that we believe that they can handle the information. Of course I don't think you want to overwhelm them negatively. I think you want to give them the information. I don't think we want to also gaslight our children by saying Oh everything's GonNa be okay. We're not worried because they're picking up from us that we are worked like everyone's worried and I think to say hey we are worry. These are adult problems that were going to work on yours safe. You're taking care of but there is a lot of your atmosphere and I think that it is important to be honest with them and I think the way that we're really going to show them how to work through. This is not by telling them how to do it but by modeling it ourselves

"lofton" Discussed on The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap

"A delta flight a three hundred thirty three hundred cities where people in the car it where people miss someone in one of our other two hundred ninety nine we don't fly to three hundred cities milita bringing together just show us were not that far apart climbing this is the sporting life on espn radio and the e s p n app here's jeremy chef joy now by someone who is the six time all star one of the great players here's the nineteen nineties and early two thousands he spent nearly two decades in the major leagues were joined by the fleet end de accomplished andy six time all star kenny lofton kenny thank you for being with us no problem thanks for having me any we think about the all star game a what made it special for you well again i think the first the first one was very special because i was pretty excited about being a part of it is in ninety four is in pittsburgh and i just felt you know very special in just to be a part of a of a of a midseason classic that that created the best players in the game and i felt like i was part of it is big deal they all star game when we were growing up you're in early fifties i'm forty nine the all star game was a big deal it's almost like a super bowl in some ways 'em for baseball a one off is suppose the world series one game everybody paying attention tens of millions of people watching it doesn't get those kinds of eyeballs retention anymore why do you think that is again i don't know how baseball is approaching this but 'em i don't think it's the same i think the game overall has somehow changed why i don't know but m i think it's still just excited about the midseason classic and i think that back then it meant something to where if you win the game you know you feel like that's what well right now they went from every other switching every other year to who you know for for the team was a world series teams have the home field advantage and then it went from there to trying to figure out whoever wins the the all star game just tried boosted up to just to get the home field advantage and i now i think is back to you know a a medically nationally back and forth we have the home field advantage but i i'm not even sure why it's not because again i mean guys get a little pay little money through their contracts and from either their glove company or batting glove or bat so whatever they got their little bonus and now these little bonuses mean and now 'cause they make so much money they make so much money and they don't produce the same numbers what they making the money were speaking with kenny

hundred twenty three runs scored in six hundred in twenty two stolen bases kenny this season were seeing balls flying out of the park like never before a even what happened in the nineteen nineties doesn't compare to be a home run rate were seeing this season it's yeah it's unprecedented what do you think's going on guys are getting paid hitting home runs they're not getting paid to get on base so get on base right now means nothing in the game and i think that's the problem and they have this launch angle where everyone's everyone's swing vote offense if i was playing the game i swung the defense is every time i would hit twentyfive thirty home runs cut the opportunity that you are swinging for the fences you're gonna pretty much have a chance to connect as many times are you swinging but at the same time you're gonna be striking out like last year's all star game i felt people felt it was the best i felt it was the worst you know he said it was ten home runs oh so many home runs but it was twenty five strikeouts you can't strike out that many times i mean again all stories stories about guys getting on base having fun you know didn't hit and they wouldn't get any hits striking when you strike out twenty five times in a game that's just that's the that's also unheard of but that's the way this game is going today you're getting a bill buckner died a few weeks ago the great first baseman outfielder who almost had who had more than twenty seven hundred hits in the major league she would've batting title striking out only seventeen times that season anti never struck out more than twice in a game in his entire career twenty two seasons in the big leagues when we see now as you say something completely different you don't seem happy about it well no i don't because i know the part of my game and what i did in the game if felt like you because again always say when i play the guys with the rb eyes are be i mean runs batted in so that means if someone had to be on base tibet this person in and nowadays you don't have you have a lot of solo all home runs and what you have your martell you know run home runs whatever but if you look at the majority of their solo home runs you've got a leadoff hitter trying hit home runs every time they come to the plate because i don't like people are changing the game game just fall home runs out in like the part when they said back in the nineties take chicks dig the long ball what about the chicks taken the guy gets on base make some things happen getting on base still and basically i know that with the chick should have been digging that but they wanna they should they should have been digging ricky henderson although he had some pop to you at some pop to i mean you hit a hundred and thirty home runs or you hit three home runs the big leagues yet honored and sixteen triples i mean you're career slugging percentage is four twenty threes you you had some pop and you'd be outspoken kenny in the past the in one of the things that you always noteworthy about you're legacy in the game with all you're all you're chievements a six time all star are a all those runs scored although stolen bases among the alltime leaders at two ninety nine career batting average three seventy two on base you got barely any support when you were first eligible for the hall of fame under five percent threshold which meant you were right off the ballot end 'em that was controversial and you've been outspoken about a why you think you deserve more supportive why you haven't gotten that support it has to do with these a preponderance of baseball the time you're playing a yeah i mean i felt like again my time of the game i didn't actually see what was going on but i knew what was going on in for me to be in the game at that time knowing how i played the game and i just feel like you wanna play the game the right way you play the right way and i felt that's what i did i do a lot of players played it the right way but they're also someplace who didn't play the game the right way and and that kind of upsets me because it makes me makes my numbers look on the bottom part of the totem pole because of the guys who have what i say cheated the game so if you wanna cheat the game input cured numbers up there you know and i just feel like you know these guys who cheated the game they cheated the opportunity to become a hall of famer for my standpoint because of they they cheated the get the numbers i didn't cheat the get my numbers if they she my numbers will be stacked up at the top echelon of the totem pole because they didn't cheapest since they cheated my numbers drop way down my free agency at those times they wouldn't even looking at me at that time when when did it become a free agent because i wasn't hitting home runs and that's again that's what upsets me is that guy's opium praise for cheating and that's what's kind of confusing me that's all man you're right i mean there's no doubt about that a your numbers if you take them outside of the context of the year in which we had the maguire's and the bonds is in sosas and and so many people hitting these absurd amount of home runs 'em dry juan gonzalez and an i don't know if one is always who's doing steroids i think of his name the mitchell report we don't know for sure but the kinds of things at certain guys were doing that made people suspicious it it it it makes it hard for guy like you just stand out in what do you think should be done about in terms of the hall of fame or again i'm not a hall of famer so i don't know i think guys like you know like maybe berry berry larkin's you got a paul monitor monitor eddie murray winfield those guys are the ones that you could ask that question about because that they're in a in a league class that they didn't cheat the game in their number so not a lot of their numbers are are also starting to go down were compared to the guys who have been cheating but those are the guys that will have a better answer to that than i do because again i'm not a hall of fame i got off the ballot so in my numbers doing it the right way look like they're they're they're kind of bad come come parrot compare it to those guys and i think those other guys who are in the hall of fame with a doing it the right way should be the guy frank thomas those guys to be speaking out about what's going i mean again i'm not there i can't i have no i have no say anything 'cause i'm just at logan the total were speaking with kenny lofton the six time all star for all star game special in in kenny also one of the great all around found a two sport athletes of his you're a great basketball player at the university of arizona played in the nineteen eighty final

nonprofit a what is objective of i got game of the still got game i should say foundation i don't have any game anymore but it's still you still got game so i think a lot of guys came together and felt like the objective for us to go out into to inspire and they help people always michael always helped the people who are not as privilege is i was in other guys who are in the game will play the game in in just giving someone a boost or little heads up in what they're trying to do in whatever type of organization that needs help us especially for the young kids that's coming up that was very important for me in where i grew up in cleveland and in east chicago just just the give someone a chance and we myself griffey look look troy 'em torii hunter we felt like we need to keep giving back even though we're not in the game we have that opportunity and we partner also with a guy been posing who's a company called line britain line brooke capitol in california felt like you know we we all need to keep giving back as much as we can even though we're not in the game we thought about is like we still got game and this is part of are are game is the give back in whatever areas we need and we all come up with certain areas areas of of 'em life that we see in front of us as we travel who needs help and that's what we're gonna try to push forward to help who's in need in there's a poker tournament taking place sunday july seven a in cleveland which is going to benefit still got game foundation what's gonna benefit there but it's also proceedings only gonna go to the east cleveland metropolitan school district east cleveland 'cause that's where i where i went to that's why lip that when i was in cleveland so the opportunity for me to give back and i've seen different schools who

Detroit-Area Renters Are Eager To Leave. Even For Cleveland

"A piece of Detroit real estate news that made us say, holy crap. There's a penthouse loft apartment in mid-town. That's on the market for a cool one point four million dollars. It's in the Willy's overland, loft building on Willis street, right next door to the original Avalon, bakery, and coffee, shop, the free says the loft is actually two units combined into one on the building's fifth and sixth floors, the specs on this. When are three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms nearly twenty seven hundred square feet plus another fifteen hundred for the terrace, which offers views of downtown, Detroit, and the ambassador bridge. It's got a custom built steel staircase. A two story main space with Florida ceiling windows and a galley kitchen finished in walnut. Willie's lofts is housed inside a former dealership for the Willy's overland an early four hundred Jeep that was built and headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, the conversion to residential loss was completed about a decade ago with the addition of two stories. Not included in that list. Price is a four hundred seventy five dollar monthly condo fee will link to the free story on daily Detroit dot com. From the high demand for a million dollar, plus Lofton midtown to a new study that shows people who rent in metro-detroit are looking to leave town apartment list dot com has new data. That shows that people who are renting in our region are the second most likely in the nation to search to leave the area fifty percent of searches for housing by people in metro Detroit are for places outside of the region. Demand is very uneven after all in metro Detroit, some areas, usually the walkable more urban places like greater downtown Detroit. What you can't seem to build enough places to serve the demand, and there are waiting lists. The top cities people in metro Detroit, are looking to leave to Cleveland Cincinnati and Grand Rapids. I thought it was interesting to put these two stories together spend because actually I've, I've toured those Willy's overland lofts spaces before they're absolutely beautiful. But there's been a lot that has been sitting on the market until recently, and then it just starts starts to move, but they are beautiful spaces. And then you put. That right next to some stats like this, where it's like, really positive about Detroit, but the region, there's a lot of people can leave. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean I would love to see, you know, deeper drill down into that. But I think, you know, you're right that people, you know, we're, we're seeing really hot rental markets are places like Ferndale down here in midtown in Detroit. But, you know, you'd suspect out in the suburbs, you know, rental apartment buildings and stuff like that, that, that don't have any kind of walkable amenities or any, you know, access to a nearby downtown. I think people are, you know, you know, look, younger people don't wanna live in those in those kind of areas, we keep reading about that over and over again. It's there's no secret, well, and the other thing, I think leaders and this is a stat I think they need to grab onto to really embrace this change is that forty three percent of families now rent their homes across America that isn't just like a Detroit thing that's a national change. In fact, more people are renting now than in the last fifty

College Cheating Scandal: Everything to Know

"And the other big story this week, which is I think it's the tip of the iceberg. According to the FBI, and the IRS let's not forget, the IRS is involved in this nasty nasty college cheating scandal where far about fifty people are charged including actress velocity, Huffman Acura, slowly often. Those are the big things people know, so they get sort of tossed around, but they did it. And so many of these Ivy league colleges and. Paying off college coaches cheating on college entrance exams. Six days. Both coasts IRS. We had people like there's a woman here in San Diego area names, Elizabeth him. All she runs the east on TV station here, and they said, she used a nonprofit to sort of pay something. So a lot of people had these things where they pay things off wrote it off the charity. So the IRS is saying we're in on this to people, right? You know, it sounds like modern day, money laundering, really using nonprofits and all these charities to do this thing. Here's here's the sad part. These especially the accuracy is that we seen in all of these high powered people they already have the money to send their children to school. Right. So the payoff and coaches are an entrance exam or something like that. It's not the other person's fault who's struggling to get in that that child of this high-powered person is let's just say academically challenge because if they weren't able to ask the exam scores they need to get into these schools. So now, what you've done us affected, so many people that have been fighting to get these spots in these schools and everyone's thinking, oh, well, this person goes there because their mom or dad celebrity. Well, maybe that's part of it. But the bigger part could be that. Yeah. They just use their wealth in their power to get their kidding. And that's that status, especially when we're living in a time, Amy where we always hear this. These two words which I'm not a big fan up, but white privilege. We always hear that. And then when this happens. It's hard to defend it against somebody. That can come back easily and say, oh, they're using their white privilege. How do you defend against that? Well, it's funny because you have all these memes going around about well, there's Laurie Lofton and our daughter, and by the way, her daughter herself has put herself in the public eye. She's sort of a YouTube star, she was set some sort of affiliation with Sephora. And before has let her go this week. Hallmark is like Lori Loughlin go from their affiliation with her. But but the point Lori Loughlin daughter, I it's not. You know, some of these kids the parents didn't tell them we're doing this. It was all a big secret. But the inconvenient thing about poor little the little Laughlin family is that I think Haley has channel. She's on there saying I want to go to college to go to college. I want to go to party, and it just fled so much craziness to the story that was already just so so bizarre and I think both her daughters. I think I read today. The both Laughlin starters are resigning from their colleges. That that that whole thing. So that was just a big part of it. But not all the kids knew. It's just some of these pictures being doctored to make it look like people were pulled alters or on the rates specific sports teams. So they would have a better access to whatever college they wanted and not a victimless crime. Because no one will ever know. Why didn't I get in? Yeah. It's not a victimless crime. I mean, look how many people are still waiting in line. Get to some of these schools. Right. So you know, when you feel those spots. Especially due to some type of fraud when you have someone that's very very deserving waiting to get there. You know, somebody that would be a much better student. It's it's like when people say LeBron James is the greatest ever. Well, LeBron is the greatest in the NBA that we know about, but there's hundreds and hundreds of kids on playgrounds that could probably out late LeBron James on any given day. Just like there's hundreds of hundreds of kids that have been going to these schools that would have been better students in more deserving been what we have now that's such a perfect analogy. So how big a trouble are these parents in? Oh, yeah. You know what? Amy, it's it's not looking good, especially when you when you start talking of fraud. They were setting up nonprofit organizations just for this. I mean, there's some decent Rico charges their money laundering charges ear. So I mean, these charges are federal this isn't like they went to the store stole sunglasses.

And there's a lot of people listening here who remember Chris Jackson it somebody call an educate him on Chris Jack's when I was a kid. I thought Chris Jackson was the best thing that ever happened in bass and he played with shack. Yeah. Let me tell you something Dan have you ever watched? There's a basketball game. I want you to look up and watch do you like basketball, Dan? Are you a fan? Yeah. Okay. There's a basketball game you need to watch. It's on YouTube, the SEC network actually did a special on LSU. Played Loyola Marymount. Right. The announcers were. I think James Brown was it. Yeah. And maybe Quinn Buckner something like that. And the final score was like one forty five to one forty. It's crazy. There's a little man had gathering gathers and Bo Bo Kimble LSU had shack. Chris Jackson Stanley Roberts. I'm serious, Dan. Look that game. It might be the most fun basketball. You will ever see in your life? We. Do that for me. Probably not. He's such a bummer. And he does this all the time. It's because he spent all that time up in Bristol. He doesn't appreciate good enjoyment of southern culture. Let's just get to it before. He depresses me. Let's go to Logan in Memphis. How are you Logan? How you doing there? Do you? Remember, Chris Jackson, Logan. Yes. How awesome was Chris? Jackson. He was number one is there. Yes. He was. He was an amazing player. Go ahead. Logan. Well, I've got a couple of questions the first one, do, you know, Zaire Williams grade point average coming out of high school? I do not what was it. I don't know why being guy was trying to find figure it out. What was it? May may I ask what why do you care? What sei Williamson's grade point average was because member while but certain schools you can do in with a. Well, they that used to be true about Duke. That's not true anymore. They go. Yeah. About eight or nine years ago just decided you know, what we want to win it basketball. So you remember those grade requirements? Let's just forget about those. That's what I said that you did all schools is. I mean, he's back. I don't think they wept. They don't think they do that anymore. Yeah. Well, some do like Stanford Stanford dis northwestern, I think does, but there aren't many and the second question is how do they arrived with giving. Choose the people for the NCW committee. You know, it's a good question. You mean for like, the the basketball and football committees? Is that what you're talking about? Good because I was wondering on they voted in or do. They choose them among each other. Yeah. I think the people who are on twos. I think in the NCAA just picks them. So it's not I don't necessarily think. It's merit. I think it's more like hoodoo, you know. Yeah. Got to be because they keep the same old rules. And then, you know, hardly never changes. And I think the hip has any AA if they want to get different people to way, different ideas. I'm with you matter of fact, Logan, if I ever get a chance, I'll nominate you. How's that? Hey, you got my vote. You have great show, man. Keep up the good work. Thank you. I was nominating him.

We can all spend Christmas Eve with James Lofton on the radio Broncos. Listen, this is still a fierce rivalry. And I know there's nothing on the playoffs. But I would imagine. These teams are still going to come out and throw haymakers at each other. Oh, yeah. A couple couple things to watch their cars. Having a really good year despite their overall record is pleasing percentage ways, protecting the football. And then Philip Lindsey the undrafted running back out of your Colorado nine hundred ninety one yard. So maybe third rookie running back who's been undrafted and Lee just three to break thousand yards. Dominic grows did it in two thousand one and the Garrett blunt that oh, I think maybe two thousand nine or seven I might have my numbers off a little bit.

They're certain teams that are. Playing than others that you do not wanna play which is what I talked about with the Philadelphia Eagles even Minnesota Vikings. You know, the Vikings are re emerging out of their midseason swoon one of those two teams is gonna miss the playoffs. And in my opinion. Both of those teams would be capable of winning a couple of playoff games. One of them's gonna miss it. There there is that momentum. The Baltimore Ravens right now. I would not wanna play a team like the ravens because people will compare it to Tim Tibo and Tim Tijuana playoff game, right? Tim. Tebow one is significant playoff game. Lamar Jackson is so dynamic running the football. It's not always pretty you know, watching chargers game on Saturday. There were times on third down where Lamar Jackson tucks it runs right into the teeth. And you think well that that probably wasn't the best way to try to pick up a first down. But there's such a fear there. I guess a bit away. Putting it there such a respect for what? He is capable of doing with his legs that as long as he's just capable of making a few routine passes..

"All season long, Monday night football, Broncos raiders, James Lofton joins us here in the richeisenshow. James? How are you? I'm doing great. How are you guys doing merry Christmas? Merry christmas. You appreciate you on this Christmas Eve sneaking a little time on the radio. I'm curious your thoughts right now on sort of this changing landscape James of the first two and a half months. It was all offense records being on pace to be smashed everywhere. And now it feels like if you're not running the football and you're not playing hard nosed defense. You might not have a chance to win the Super Bowl. What do you make of this changing landscape? You know, it's funny because you you mentioned that a couple of things happen. Once December rolls around you hear the term they control their own destiny. And the other one is all I wouldn't wanna play those guys in the playoffs. And I think that's what you always have and December you have teams that stuck a game momentum unless you say sometimes. Eventually sometimes it's offense ably. I've looked at the Kanthi cheese all year long. And I said if they were going twenty one point the game everybody talking about how bad their decent. But when you're scored thirty five points the game. Nobody notices that staying on your time. They just notice that you're gonna pay the Bill. It's true. I mean last we saw Patrick Mahomes once again, put up a great performance, and the defense just wasn't able to get it done. You you look at the chiefs losing to the chargers losing the patriots lose into the Rams. They struggled against the best teams on their schedule. But do you believe that offense is still good enough to win them a few playoff games? I think that if you look at the Kathy cheese say I wouldn't wanna play them in the playoff. Yeah. You're probably say the same thing about the Baltimore Ravens in when teams are playing well at the end of the season. That's the way it should be. There shouldn't be a team that you go. I wait those guys in the post even 'cause I know where send out something. Anyway, is that when you get to the final toil when you were playing with the Buffalo Bills in in bit went, obviously the bills went to four Super Bowls. You were part of three those teams was there was that even happening then I mean was was the offense defensive balance still true back in the nineties, and it's still true today. The one constant the NFL's really head over the last few decades. Well, I think that the NFL is a lot like the NBA. Now, if you get a stop at the end of the first half a stop in the fourth quarter, you got a chance with a with a decent offense to win the ballgame. You know, there aren't going to be a lot of shootouts, but they were with the Los Angeles Rams independent cheese were both teams score fifty points. Just not gonna have it. You're going to have more typical day that are twenty four twenty eight thirty one twenty four games like that where? Yeah. The mall if some excitement and assessing, but you've got to get that stuff. At the end of the first half gotta get that stop in the fourth quarter, James left and joining us here on the rich Eisen show James cures. There's a big play in the Steelers game a tough call made on Joe Haden pass interference in the end zone that really swung the balance of that game in the favor of the New Orleans. Saints laid has the NFL officiating is there. A decline in the quality the. -ficiating you're seeing on the field over the last handful of years, or is it always we all just more aware because of what we have the access to these days. I get the great opportunity to sit in their line lounges with the fficials after games as well. Late non-flight to go back home in each direction having been a coach in the one thing. I know that I think the issue might be better than ever. What has happened is the league has asked them to make call..

"Beautiful Christmas Eve to you and your family. We're going to spend it talk in some football. Some MBA James Lofton will join me momentarily hall of fame wide receiver his thoughts on this readily, shifting competitive landscape in the NFL where the first two and a half months was all about offense of domination. And then the last three weeks has been about running the football playing tough defense. We'll find out which one will win out in the long run this year when James Lofton of Westwood One joins us coming up in a few minutes a couple of things here before we get to that. First of all Washington Redskins safety DJ swearing jer. Just informed. Washington DC radio show that he was called into Jay gruden's office earlier this morning and promptly cut from the Redskins. This comes after the Redskins lost to the Tennessee titans on Saturday. It was the first. Game of Saturday's doubleheader and DJ swinger was not happy about losing to Blaine gabbert member earlier in the year when the Green Bay Packers lost to the lowlier Zona cardinals. And they responded by firing their head coach their Super Bowl winning head coach Mike McCarthy like an hour later as he was pulling out of the parking lot there. Don't worry about coming into work tomorrow, you're fired and you just pulled out left. I don't think that's how it happened. But it funnier to me if that's the way it was it sort of similar if you if you lose to Blaine gabbert, the NFL is not going to respond. Well, DJ swear injured did not respond. Well, and he was upset about it. He criticized the coaching staff pointedly about it and instead of suspending him or something after calling the coaching staff decisions, quote horrible the Redskins called him into the coach's office and cut them today. Now, DJ swear injure is a starting caliber safety in the NFL. And there are a few teams right now that could use starting caliber safety or at least depth with rosters decimated by injury. I would imagine there will be a handful of teams desperately trying to find a way to get DJ swear injure on their roster before week seventeen. Whether that's the Dallas Cowboys, the Baltimore Ravens, whomever. It may be this is like doing DJ swear, injure a favor. This is when you know, a franchise is just sort of dysfunctional. They try to send a message to their veteran safety who criticize publicly the coaching staff. They're trying to work tough. We won't tolerate that around here..

"So we call them the gab, man. And you have the gab men may be starting maybe Marcus mariota. Maybe some sort of tag teamed duo where when Marcus mariota's, you know, on the mat getting stomped around, and then he climbs and scrawls over to the to the ropes and tags in the gab men comes in and cleans house. So you've got Tennessee Indianapolis winning and that will be the Sunday night football weeks matchup, and honestly, I have no real complain about that it's a fine game winning in there's drama, but I actually have a different solution that has no chance of ever happening. So it's a waste of everyone's time, but I'm gonna give it to you. Anyway, I wished the NFL in the year two thousand eighteen was four. Forward thinking enough to say, you know, what? Instead of Indianapolis, Tennessee who are battling for the six seat in the AFC and likely sacrificial lamb at some point in the playoffs. Why don't we take Cleveland Baltimore and Cincinnati at Pittsburgh? They're both the Sunday night football game. And we do a little mini red zone between the two of them. Just let Scott Hanson take over from the NFL network and instead of being forced to watch India, Tennessee, which you know, again, not to franchises that have a ton of emotional investment from people outside those two cities. What do we take Cleveland at Baltimore Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and they kick off at the same time on Sunday night football. And you could have got to announcing crews for both. We'll find the second Senate football crew, very easy, logistically, I'm just making things up now. And then have Scott Hanson, go back and forth when the incredible when that'd be more fun than watching India, Tennessee, go six. Eighteen to nine in the fourth quarter, and there's five turnovers. And it's it's you know, it's is what it is. It's significant. But it's probably not gonna be that entertaining. I would rather have the first Sunday night football weeks teen double header, and we just bounce back and forth between the two cities. We go to Pittsburgh when they're something significant happening. There we go to Baltimore. There's a huge play put it on tape. I know that we'll go to it in a second. Just like Scott Hanson dozen the red zone this. That's that's what should have inspired the Sunday night football decision. Stead? Those teams will battle of out in the afternoon, and we will get week seventeen. Indy at Tennessee coming up on the rich Eisen show. I'm mention New England. You are going to miss them when they're gone, but something happened this weekend that rarely if ever has happened in the Bill Belichick era and not a lot of people were talking about it. I'll tell you what it is. And James Lofton hall of fame wide receiver will join me his thoughts on whether ofensive schemes will take over the postseason or whether the NFL will revert back to the norm, and it will be defense and running football that carries the day..
