Father of 19-year-old killed in CHOP says he got condolence call from President Trump, but not Seattle's mayor
"The day he buried his nineteen year old son, who was gunned down in Seattle's lawless chop zone horace Lorenzo Anderson Senior got a phone call from president trump who had been moved by his heart, wrenching appearance the night before on Fox News Channel's Hannity Anderson Son Horse. Lorenzo Anderson Junior was killed in the early hours of June twentieth when shots rang out near the border of the six block. Block zone. The city had been given up for three chaotic weeks in the emotional interview with Sean. Hannity a tearful Anderson said he hadn't been able to get answers from the city about his son's death, and he disclosed that he hadn't even been contacted by mayor. Jenny Durken but the mayor a Democrat did reach out to Anderson later. Wednesday in call from trump followed after that the only way. Way I found out was just two of his friends, just two friends that just happened to be there. They came and told me he said they weren't even from Seattle. Now mind you I haven't heard from the police department. They never came compounding. The father's grief were reports that first responders who came to the shop zone to transport the shooting victims to the hospital encountered an angry mob that. That denied them entry. The pair were taken to harborview medical center by self-described trump medics and Anderson. Son was pronounced dead on arrival. My son needed help I don't feel like they helped my son. Anderson said I feel like he doesn't without this. He would just be nobody he's just doesn't matter. He's just another guy. Just another child just swept under the rug, and that's IT and forgotten about.

"Period of at the Opera House and he's and he's wearing the same love confrontation confrontation the opera houses great. But then you see the scene later on you know. It's kind of a throw a shot of amaury arriving at the airport and not wearing the same outfit. I believe Dulles Airport. I think you can correct me on this. I I didn't get a chance to look it up but I think it was designed by the same person who designed the Metropolitan Opera House And it was the first time after having grown up in DC lived in DC. The first time on. It wasn't until I saw Lorenzo's oil that I thought to myself my God Dulles Airport looks like an Opera House Eero saarinen irresponsible dish right architect. Who designed the Gateway Arch and who designed the TWA the famous TWA FLIGHT CENTER JFK? You know really cool. Do you know what I'm talking about. Yeah did but did he design the Opera House he Maybe not maybe but he has designed opera houses. Did he do grow for me with this movie? The thing that maybe blew me away the most just because I went. How is it possible that this movie is nearly thirty years old and every film of its ILK has not instituted? This choice has not followed this example when this movie gets to its end sort of title cards explaining what happened after the film. It starts with the preface. This film was completed in Nineteen Ninety two right in December of nineteen ninety. Two as of the time of its release it can textual realizes it's not. It's not it's not like Lorenzo is still alive and doing great things. It's very specifically like here's the update folks also makes you aware. I mean you've been aware that you're watching a movie because it's such a self conscious but But it is. Yeah it's it's kind of like yeah. We're in the theater. This is the movie this is when we finished it. Here's here's what's going on with this this this story this our understanding. I mean it's pleasing you in there's so many fact-based movies where I think. Even if the craft is incredibly strong they can become invalidated overtime because our understanding of the actual events changes so radically that his heart. Divorce the foam from that and the movie is very smartly. Like setting up a frame around itself saying like this is the film made at the time that we made it with our understanding and what results we had seen as of the making of this film we call them Computers Right. Lorenzo lived to thirty which was an additional twenty years since the father outlived in. The mother. Outlived mom which is also I mean. There's also like it's I mean that's obviously as a child you. You know you're supposed to outlive your mom. Yeah but but like the. She died relatively immature sixty. She's she died relatively young but also like he was so dependent on people that like the fact that he lost his mom while he was still alive. Just I mean just I can just imagine how hard it must be very young young. Yeah it's very difficult to reckon with and they will. After I remember I remember his. I remembered they're both. They're not mom's a bitch but I remember reading Lorenzo's obituary and then Augusta's obituary which was not long after Lorenzo's died in two thousand eight and died in two thousand thirteen right back to Italy. I mean it was basically there. Just make sure Lonzo is okay for as long as he could be Let's end on that note. Let's play the box office. So this home opened limited You know basically years Nineteen ninety-two So you know it's not in the top five and it did like one black cat. I liked it. To- It totalled seven million eight black. Had it did was cost a lot less than it cost about like one quarter black still. It's still cost thirty million dollars. Which is a sizable enough budget. That it was viewed as just that is unequivocally a flying number one of the box office in its eighth week. A huge huge huge hit children's film. I saw it in theaters eight weeks. It's made one hundred and fourteen million dollars. It's very well remembered. Is it a Disney film? It is is it. An animated film is is it Latin to Latin high-scoring. It's year the first one. My brother Sauna theatre one of the first ones that I consciously remember being excited to see. Yeah like I was aware of. Its release I remember my dad coming home like with tickets. Physical tickets that he'd bought like on the way home. Yeah and we took my brother in five minutes and he put my dad's coat over said and fell asleep. Iverson similar memory. I was Three years older. Whatever but I I remember going to see it. I'm looking at the poster as I walked into the theater and I remember going. Oh Robin Williams is playing the genie really. Yeah what a weird fucking three year old Robin. That's cool Latin. Do you like Aladdin. I like Aladdin in college. I know yeah But Aladdin was actually another movie that we reviewed in the arts in our obligation possibly in the same issue that my Lorenzo's say but it was not actually. I didn't write the review. My my co editor wrote the review under a pseudonym. Oh which is weird. I Don Labban I am not a huge fan. That's such a weird. I think that people will drag me for. You should get dragged for that all the way to I cave of wonders. Here's here's the most surprising griffin take of all time right. I think the nineties Disney Renaissance is over eight. Now let me ask you this. I'm not okay go ahead no you go ahead because bler yes. Yeah I mean the thing. I remember about Aladdin. I mean I I I like the Latin but I remember at the time of Roger Rabbit Time or Newsweek. Or One of these magazines did a feature on Richard Williams. I remember still from the even the cobbler. Yeah and then. When Aladdin came out I was like. Oh this must be the thief and the Cobbler because that guy looks exactly like the the guy and and and it wasn't and there was no Richard Williams mentioned anywhere and I remember like for you and this is obviously the Internet for years. I was like did I imagine this other movie called thief and the Cobbler Guy like Richard Williams Roger Rabbit like I had no reference things to look at it. I was just like I. I must have dreamt this must have dropped. This other movie was years. This is this is the whole thing absolutely corporate espionage. It is like ants. In a bug's life he never got any they were also a lot of the designs are the same a and a lot of the animators who worked on the others. I mean everybody and his mom worked on even the call because it vessel lost the theme of the move. The line was literally like intellectual theft seeing something being like. Let's copy that allowed in his little more. Like I mean even the cobbler's from like the sixties right goes on I two years and he was self financing. It's like you would only be able to hire an mayors to work for like two months. And then he'd be like maybe a year or two for now call you back and they started going. Can you draw the sultanate? You've been drawn for him thing. I feel about the Disney renaissance slaps. Maybe your problem is the music because to me. The thing I like about those things I think Ashman is just a genius. And that's why I love those three movies because of his lyrics like that's those are the that's the thing. Look I was the biggest Disney cage. Or I don't want to twenty five years later now. Assume the role of the Gen xers who were pulling these movies at the time. Write all the songs work. I cannot deny that I am not the grinch. Okay I love these movies. I have great fondness for them Re watching them all pretty recently as I had it on the Disney pluses and even like eight years ago and they were all on Netflix. Gave them all around through? I just find them so UN nuanced storytelling so manipulative. We should we should talk about it. Well Disney's blank things. I don't really like like. That's where they king and on the aspirin movie. Some of the I mean hunchback. What do you guys think of? That's okay stage. Back Hunchback's hunchback is best Disney's renaissance as long as we're not counting emperor's new groove no post Rasoul Emperor's new groove and Lilo and stitch. I like more than any of the nineties eighties movies. Yeah Yeah I think of that era hunchback's the best one. I think the other ones songs are undeniable. But I don't love the movie. So the thing a hunchback has also for some reason the score clicks in that one of the songs. Click in that one better than they do for me and I don't know Polka. I'm trying to think of the other like late night. Lawn take my number tip. That's I mean I. I was never a huge fan of songs I was. I was the gen-xer who was like. Yeah whatever the Disney. That wasn't a thing for me but Rewatching beauty in the beast. Recently for a piece you know it was really good but thanks. It really like brought back. How how good it is in really quite beside the the The songs are fine again. But the score is Great. Score is fucking credit opening with this young geniuses yes especially champion beauty and the beast hundred percent. It'd be great yeah. Love Chappie abused. Put them in right now. Yes there's a- just I wish we could figure out a way. We figured they they did. Aladdin covers enough of it. Yeah but they didn't they didn't active Little Mermaid. A Aladdin Trades off treasure planet. It's perfect you love higher rise and fall IT STARTS PRE POST ROAD. WanNa beating the beasts are the ones who never really did in San Minkoff minkoff is lying king interviewed. These guys king is something that is is being trousdale in lies fast and then minkoff blanking right right anyway We'll do obviously our whole director thing doesn't work quite as well with the Disney animated movies. Because they were you'd have to. You'd have to do like a Katzenberg we're going to scream clements because often. Casa my colleague. It right now we'll do muster clements. April twenty twenty seven grade. No we'll do it early in the right number two. Yeah good movie Just like a real fucking movie that you watch on cable all the time and like I wonder what you think of this movie. I genuinely have no idea. It's like a solid Hollywood movie with big movie stars written by a big shot. Screenwriter director is the screenwriter director. At the time he's become a bit of a laughingstock. But Reiner good men. I I was GonNa ask you a few good I. I thought maybe sneakers but well sneakers isn't ninety-two. Sneakers writers right because it was Walter Parks and his writing partner really okay. I know it's directed by Phil Alden Robinson but I mean if it were sneakers. David's hint would have been what movie fully threatens his consciousness into you because by the way. I'm no longer saying that things fought honored Emperor Albertine. I'm now saying that. Things thrust their consciousness. What do you think you could? I'd genuinely wonder I really like I did not a few good men at the time. Yeah I a few years ago I had to do a Had to do a Tom. Cruise ranking more for.

"Tell your hand to move podcast. Oh See I'm like tearing up just like even here. That is the best movie. Yes that's probably the best thing. Now you said to me as I was getting ready to read off my chest and you can talk Bogan like you said it. Better be an Italian accent now. I love doing a nolte impression. Too many times on this podcast. You have you done many times but usually you're doing hulk or warrior older. Not Bad dad nicknamed right exactly either right right right. This is good dad. Nick Nolte is. That's true rate. That really goes above and beyond. We're going to get into this. But there's like a you know chaotic neutral lawful good heart of just like of. Nolte's good good Dad Nick Nolte Bad Dad Nick Nolte Good Movie Bad Dad Nick Nolte Nick's but this is probably a good good movie nichols. I think this is the Best Good Dad Nick Nolte movie. It's very interesting and it's also probably the best dad he's ever played. It's I have a lot of questions about this movie would do you know. Does he look like like the guy like. How does he get this role? Do you know anything about that like I. I know he was obviously a big star at the time he recently been people's sexiest man alive but like he hasn't done. Cape fear yet or has he. Fear was the year before you know. He's yeah he's had a good ad that you know. He got his Oscar for the Prince of tides the year before like he's kind of peak movie stardom he like here. He's the the burly slightly older guy that you know MOMS love. And he's finally hit his ideal form in his early fifties. He's next film is All do anything. And he's and he's quite vulnerable. Yes that he's unafraid. Vulnerable Right which is not which is not a thing you get that often. No I think he's. He's always had the guts to vulnerable. If Ninety s he finally hit that perfect balance. And I think it's also a thing of just the way he aged you know this is when he still aging well But how much more interesting his face becomes when there's a little more wear and tear on it. Yeah Yeah when you look at him like in the seventies when he's very young and he's kind of pretty Yeah he breaks beautiful because he's a very angular face in you know he's got a big jaw like he's got the. Edgerton thing where he's like each very pretty but also has this kind of craggy mountain bone structure rates. It's the Chin it's in Richmond. Poor man that's big breakout right now. He's got his. Yeah it's a he's a seventies handsome. Yes it's an interesting handsome right. But then once he starts getting some lines in the face. It's incredible and then there's like ten years between this movie and Hulk which it feels like he's lived eight lifetime like he just like is aging so well so well so well and then suddenly becomes the most damage looking man in America. I love him nolte. I love him. I believe In Richmond Portman his character's name was Tom Right Let me just yes I remember in Turkey watching rich man poor man as like a six year old or something like that and you know one of the very few things that was on TV so you just watched it again hard to overstate like this thing was huge. It was a huge many series people in meaning. You know like it's like that sort of like north and south of roots or like back in the day when those things really were watched by everyone. I just can't get over this. You said his his name is Tom. The characters name Richard Man. I always assume that was the premise. Sorry miniseries complete here. That's Peter Strauss. I know anecdote. It's just kind of. He's one of those blue myself. He is the tissue. He is the poor man. Patrick he's one of my favorite dudes always happy when we crack into a nolte but I was watching this last night going. Oh Boy David is going to expect me to do an Italian nolte impression and I was like staying up later. My sounds like this. No one in the history of trying to do the exercise of like let me do a little nolte like not not talion Pizza Pie Ryan Hamilton. Clayton. Let's go spaghetti. Gave I couldn't Djupedal kind of sounds like it's that's fair it's like I just. I knew very little going into this film. I thought of it I to me was Stodgy. But it was sort of like inspirational. You look at the poster for this story. Looks like it's a movie people. It was like a punchline title in the Nineties Renzo Oil Boring. The trailer was terrible. It was called Lorenzo's oil and if you don't know what Lorenzo's oil is you're like why the fuck would you call? And so that's what I knew going in but then I flicked this on and I'm like am I on a different audio track like what's Nick Nolte's who who's dubbing. Nick NOLTE RIGHT NOW COOKING. Burt Lancaster in the leopard or something and then I realized like no. He's just playing an Italian a very Italian. Now I knew okay. The titles got Lorenzo in it. Sure I the wikipedia page before I watched the movie. I knew the character had a very Italian name right. I don't understand that he was GONNA be playing an Italian man like a man whose first language was Italian. And you watch this movie the night before I do. We're in the middle of a text thread between you and I and my brother past future guess James and we're texting about the movie warrior. Which is one of. My brother's favorite was the last ten years. Yes well you were. How do you worry book? I like warrior. I need to see it again though. I love where I have to say it a little last night even better than I just kind of to be an owner to get hype for the way back zone insomnia zone way back zone. I'm at all of it right. It was a cross triangulation trying to as watching some of it Reminded how hard that movie hongs but James and you and I were texting `Bout GonNa Connor and warrior in the anticipation of The the blockbuster released of the way back and you said Griffin you have to get ready for Nolte's I did spoil you on the accent. You said not accent. What's he doing? Southern I immediately thought. What acts on could nick nolte be attempting to do a man with that distinctive voice why? I've never really witnessed trying to camouflage that voice in any major webster usually. He's just doing himself Jefferson Perez. Like well how how he speaks in that never seen ever Seen Jefferson. And Baroness good movie. I really like it I can't remember what his voice like in that. It's one of the great voice though does He. I think he falls into kind of that. Sean Connery camp. Where it's like. It doesn't matter if he's playing a Russian he should sound like Sean connery like Nick. Nolte's voice as a special effect. He doesn't need to sound like the real person. And then you say he's playing Italian and my mind reels and then I'm like and I didn't even specify Italian Italian like maybe maybe you think italian-american no no but you said Italians say right and then you went. I think it works like it. Pretty much works. Yeah and even with that. I sat there and was like there's no way this works and every single scene. Every time he opened his mouth. I was like God damnit. He's just making this word. Totally works shouldn't work it all at because I think that accent makes the script work because and this is a yes. This is a very George Miller thing. I mean you'll see it in you know like fury road. The line sound like they're out of Melville I mean they're very operatic. Yes and the thing is like the whole movie's operatic in particular most opera. Like I'm not sure that part would work if you didn't have kind of a thick accent to go with it because it doesn't like in ordinary conversation those lines don't make sense now they don't. I'm trying to imagine like Roberto Panini. Throw. I'm trying to imagine like how William Hurt doing this. You know you're like I'm trying to think of someone who is sort of at like a kind of nolte parallel at that point in the studio system in the nineties and it doesn't work with someone who is how I can say about Pacino. I mean Pacino. Kind of like claws his way back to respectability right around the right. Gina could have done it. But it is a little where you're like Pacino's getting bombastic at this point. Not is that exact right balance of like that weird like aggressive masculinity and a very quiet subtle vulnerability where Pacino probably would have been too big and someone like her would have been like to simmering and you need someone who can do like you know like at times like Fritz Lang acting in this movie. There's like the scene where he's I mean. We're getting ahead of ourselves. But the scene where he's like reading all the papers of the diagnosis for the first time and then he falls down the stairs. That is that's where you're like. Oh my God. That's the scene where you're like. This is George Miller. This is George Miller and this is fucking masturbate. Yes I love this. I love this. It's one reason why we're we'RE GONNA BACK UP. Yeah interesting. I'm going to set the table cleanly because this of course is blank check with Griffin Davidson. Podcast about filmography directors who have massive success early on in their careers to give it a series of blank checks to make whatever crazy passionate products they want and sometimes those checks clear and sometimes those checks fund a new type of oil and This is macer is on the films of George Miller. It is called Mad podcast and today we were talking about Lorenzo's oil which the Trivia section states and I think it was sort of like I had to run the calculus in my head but both these are correct. The only George Miller film completely devoid fantastical elements right. It's the only of his even though. The film is very heightened. Sure it is a film that takes place entirely in our real world because even even your witches of Eastwick or whatever have the sort of the Supernova magic and Satan is there and he's he's not real right. No Jess right yes. Satan definitely isn't real but also they. They said this is the only film of his. That is not part of a franchise which you have to be a little unconventional which is like an adaptive from a book. Is that the thinking. Yeah you're like the book a book that got a sequel has a sequel. The thing's been readopted a number of times. You're like in a way which is Eastwick as a proper. He's a weird sort of piece of intellectual property. You're right it's like a piece of intellectual promise to the updike verse. You know. Whatever it is he wanted to be like all right coming to Hulu verse savings obviously a little bit more of a stretch. But then it's like four Mad Max is yes and to happy feet. This is such an anomaly in his career and I had always As I got more and more into George Miller over the years like look this up see the poster Inco. This is so strange that George Miller in the early nineties after like a five year break or whatever just inexplicably made what appears to be a sub..

"Mistake I choose the Berry faster in Dubai to fly to Kigali Volya AD is available I I read several reports that I didn't check carefully quadrants for the talent aspect and at that time almost all European passports the visa on arrival except Italian and a few other countries that require online registration for you're to the fees on arrival. So I didn't do this online registration I simply landed. I met Let's say wrong officer and he questioned my job or subduing. Let's say a financial services can be Chris Senate because Can Be related to some activity. That can be doubted as an. It's a related to this kind of say developing countries. And so the officer didn't give me. Let's see the time to the juicer. At the import and simply rejected my entry. But not only either. Sinus to take my past person so the flying back and I was the formerly deported by idiopathic line. That is a way. Let's say to avoid that. You enter the country. You are lending so the captain of Deanne set your plan. Your plan was keeping my bus Bertha and they give me back on. Lena disobey and these actually was finalized. I believe to Me On a fine. That was for the American for the for the for the line company because they didn't check carefully. Let's say the travel documents but that was unexperienced Something unpleasant and I was even refused to enter back to the because they said you violated the immigration law of wonder so we don't Allow you to enter it European. Now you need to buy another flight at went to Kenya. Let's say he took me one full day to fix this mess Gender was very unpleasant the first experience with Kigali. But today I have to say that they traveled to one the probably other six times and is one of my favorite country anyway in East Africa. Even for us it's a tough and one one One month after normal online documented requirement but the visa on arrival for citizens and. That's sounds like a very unpleasant long day to say the least. So are you saying you were fined by Ethiopia Airlines or by the government? Yeah so how much was that fine at. That was something like seven hundred. Us D- Guy So could have been a lot worse now. You were officially deported from Rwanda and you said you've been back multiple times that Since then but the first time you went back after that deportation were there any challenges or issues in entering the country. I think these. Let's say the port. The An choice is not by Rwandan aggression by the by the ideology in line. I think these Formula or the way to travel is the decision of the Caperton. Ti to avoid. Let's say that you enter it European so I don't think is related to a note or any kind of comment and this was Let's say anyway much before today having already Every country I've been appointed as a diplomat superbly. I I am in a different start to and I can explain let's say my background in in a different way but at that time was simply traveling for a for pleasure and I didn't want to give so many details. What you've been to Rwanda. I think you said six times. Would you like or what about Rwanda so much Let's say also related line interests. Them Rwanda is called the singer of east Africa. So is considered one of the top place to business in east Africa and Let's say Jack Ma. The former CEO of Alibaba went to key Kelly with fifty billionaires from China to search to look for new opportunities. So for me to Wanda is a beautiful symbol of the development of the entire African continent. Let's say business opportunities in these one on one thousand his land Let's say dramatic history Pasta but again symbol because the president of Rwanda has been president of the African Union for very long term Lorenzo. Let's talk about visas for moment? You're just sharing the story of Not Realizing you had to register before arriving in Rwanda but any tough visa challenge story. Where took you months or years together? Let's say for me. The the the toughest tuition is to leaving China because in China you have the bureaucracy of the country and the let's say in the past. I folk that did relations between Beijing and only African countries were excellent. So I thought here in Beijing I can have an excellent opportunity to get all the African visa is absolutely the opposite because you have the embassies that are not exactly at the same level of New York or Aura London And it is very difficult to get the African visas or any kind of foreign visas in China plus. I leaving shy so to travel to Beijing to. Let's say Sabah meet my documents and my passport does not allow me to travel back to Shanghai and even to in hotel in Beijing because I have. Let's say a spurt where I'm registered in China so I cannot even sleep so I technically I need to get the visa immediately ordering it to ship my Bertha but they if you Let's say agencies and embassies most difficult visas for me Let's say some kid was Dafa but I got a business visa and I Julia was very Tuffah.

Not a decision of one day but Let's say traveling traveling and Let's see increasing your experience and expertise in traveling. I decided yet traveler more and more under in order already today I can say that. I traveled to every sovereign nation. One hundred ninety eight said. He contrasts having visited the. Let's say three hundred interbay gone on the third of January twenty twenty excellent Orange L. Let's go back in time. Take me to your UNESCO World Heritage City outside of Milano. And what was your family lake in other words from a perspective of travel. Were you guys homebound where you traipsing through Europe where you venturing outside of your? What was your travel? Dna? I can say I can say that With my with my father we traveled to Europe. And my father always encouraged made to to travel. And that yeah. I always remember Let's say he always recommended a certain level of education that means university glass probably so fully traveling university where exactly the same level off. Let's say education importance for the. Let's say personal life and career and is I think is a is a valued at Dieppe understood from my father probably also based on his business traveling because it was a manager in Indian shadow of a company Italian group in engineering and Manufacturing Electric In in different countries is a he always been basically neatly but he had chance to say short business trips in in many countries and every time he came back from a business trip Let's say transfer to to me is passion is interested. Let's say the venue that he understood from this experience in in addition to that your father this great opportunity to of travelling throughout Europe. Were you at times accompanying him on. Some of these strips are what were your travels like with your family going up. Let's say Miami Miami's the Travis with my family where typically some of occasions saw the let's say and Few countries of course France and few countries close to Italy so I cannot describe Let's say so many trips to remote or exotic location definitely Let's say what I remember is these? Let's say generally Comment on the importance of traveling that I received from my father and I think this was something important ores in his business career. Okay so we have to think your father partly for your passion of travel with him sharing those stories as he traveled throughout Europe. And then you also shared with us. Before he moved to China. You started to do a lot of travel on your own. So what was kind of that first independent trip? You took on your own while living in Italy when you started to spread your wings. What was that like? Let's say the first Solo travel that I did I think was to Turkey was to Eastham born and I really remember crossing Bosphorus Bridge. It is I think an important moment because I remember just these Let's say symbolic crossing between two continents Asia and Europe and for me was relevant. I felt the first time. Let's say far from my hometown and I think from that moment. I always searching other experience where I could feel the same kind of expedience and today. I think like most of people travelling so much I can say that the I never feel far from home because I feel at home everywhere. But that was Let's say unexperienced that that I remember and I can. I can manage Let's say probably the first trip out of Europe was to the United States was again. Ah Summer School. My father is encouraged me to study English in UK or the US. The time was in California in the first three of let's say Western countries sent was to Was to China was to Thailand in China. Okay so going back to the US coming from Italy and you're studying English Kelly. I'm not sure how old you were at that. Point Young Western Europe. Us pretty similar overall but as a younger guy were you kind of noticing any cultural differences or nuances. Anything funny or interesting. Stick out to you when you were standing in California. Let's say what I can say that. What ty note is. Is that Americans they have limited the understanding or knowledge about Europe and about my country and about the place I come from but this is not a comment specifically on Americans. This is something related to let's say or Muslim countries and definitely all Western countries because people from Italy they have limited understanding of the Far East of China of severed countries and not understanding of the fifty four African countries. So Yeah my first the. Let's say tree out of FUTA PA. Let's say teaching needed even in the Western world even in the top economy in the in the most developed country. We don't have a clear understanding or a complete knowledge of geography and about. Let's say the word I don't recall this. Then what were the Americans Perceptions or stereotypes in regard to Italy More misconception yeah. Probably let's say the the kind of development that they consider about Medium country was lower than the development of the country. That is a member of g seven founder off a European Union. So let's actually one of the top economies of the word of course cannot be compared to number one economy that is the United States but steeler. Let's say a very relevant lists country in term salsa GDP Let's say education standards and the a number of factors saw was I think was Underrated yet the country the general understanding Lorenzo. You also mentioned one of your first trips. Outside of the Western world was to China. Why China Let's say the reason was that a very good friend of mine and it was Let's say Trauma that is judge bitten alien writer who traveled the not to every country but Let's say award the Actually buy by a scooter and I met him for my patient for a vintage scooters and we are together. Seventy events photo exhibitions and the. Let's say public speaking about traveling with his stories and with his pictures of the word any move to China so I decided to. Let's say visit him for the New Year and Was a very special expedience because actually the place where I where I traveled the wars Jean Gong that is the capital of the region of Sheesh Rana that is a region of the province of Yunan. So is a very special. Let's say place is Southeast Asia? Within China you have a Burmese Language Alphabet and Chinese. And you are at the border with Burma. And the Lao saw very exotic part of China and this was my first expedience. Okay so Renzo. You're an experienced guy. You're traveling but what you're describing does sound like kind of eye opening exotic. What did you feel like? What were these impressions like when you got to? The Union area in New South is completely different world different from Italy different from Europe. Different from the West. What did it would? How did that? Impact You. Let's say my feeling that was an untouched plays on exotic place and was a very special Journey for me actually. I visited the person who was a famous traveler and writer who choose that place after having visited the entire world so for me it was special because might feeling wars Let's say like Person who never Known Wine who have a glass of the? Let's say the most spacious and Famous wine in the world the so was a taste of the Let's say best experience. I have as a as a that. Say first-timer Steiner Actually Laurindo. In did the late switch. Churn on when you're visiting China. This first time so in other words was the seed planted that you wanted to leave Italy in moved to China at this point or did that come at a later. Time I to say that This person that was a friend of mine and Definitely impacted on my falling decisions. Even if we are very different persons we were vide- From Person. I mean I'm a CPA Amman accounting professional. I focus on business. I'm white well organized and that person that friend was an artist. Vide- from from so for me was let's say trying to mix the values of two different personalities. The death knitted Let's say let me understood that It was possible actually to combine my interest in business in a Let's say a professional career. The head venue with this patient for traveling and this what I decided and I tried to do and I think I succeeded to. Yeah it seems like you have. So what was the catalyst that pushed you to China? So you go to union you have this amazing trip you go back to Italy and then at some point you start making a plan. I don't know if it was a month later year later. Five years later but at some point you said there is so much opportunity China at such an interesting place. It's a different world. The economy's growing there. How am I GONNA get there? Why did you go there? What was that catalyst? Let's say festival. I have to say that after these Trip due.

Annual Performance Appraisals
"Welcome to hack ear leadership. I'm Chris and this is talent Tuesday. This short weekly segment is dedicated to all things talent related for this Tuesday episode. Talk about performance appraisals. Some people in workforce don't seem to need any one on one time with their leader in order to benchmark progress and get feedback other seem to want to constantly multiple times a week or even daily neither is wrong and every employee should feel like they're on the same page with their leader when it comes to the frequency of these interactions but no matter what interval seems to fit your needs virtually all of us go through an annual performance appraisal very few companies. Don't have some sort of formal documented process for measuring performance sometimes appraisals or even tied to an annual increase in salary a practice. I don't love but that's a topic for another day. It seems however that as time goes on the annual performance appraisal starting to matter much less in a recent study by Korn ferry almost half of all professional said their annual appraisals had literally zero impact on their performance and before. You Scoff at that number. Think about why. That was your gut reaction. If an annual performance appraisal was the catalyst for bringing about change in the way you do your work that would be you either had never heard the feedback prior to the annual review whether you would hurt it but didn't really take the feedback seriously until then and neither of those is a testament to effective leadership Lorenzo. I have said repeatedly on hacking your leadership that there shouldn't be a single thing said to an employee during a formal review. They haven't already heard in the course of their normal feedback. Rhythm nothing after all the word review tells you exactly what this process should be a review of things already discussed? We've also talked extensively about how a good performance review our annual appraisal can be done on the back of a Napkin if the daily work of leadership is already being done and if he employing leader have a solid relationship so it's no surprise. Companies are more and more starting to dial back. The continued effort that goes into refining the annual appraisal process and instead focusing more on real time feedback that really needs to be aggregated. And this is great if you get a lotta organically cultivating relationships with people. And if the formal process of annual appraisals daunting task on your to do list but if you look forward to the time you spend in filling out those annual forms and pulling together the day that you needed to get it done and if the daily sometimes tedious process of relating to your employees on a personal level is the part that puts the anxiety in your stomach. Then you have your work cut out for you. This trend will only continue in this direction. Employees Are all but demanding coaching and feedback on a rhythm that is more often than annualized or quarterly. They're doing this because they want to get better both employees and his people. They look at every day at work as an opportunity to make themselves more marketable which means every day. They don't learn something new as a missed opportunity in their minds. So if your leader a people get really good at turning. This process of feedback and coaching into the data needed to write your employees annual appraisals. Because while we're still pretty far from the day we're annual appraisals don't exist. We've already arrived at a place where this process mere formality. Thanks for listening and have a great

The Battle of the Hotels: Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and IHG
"Let's get into it. The Hotel Battle Hyatt Hilton Marriott. And here's our moderator. Julian Keel teepee emeritus director of credit cards and points and miles. Take it away Julian. Thank you Brian. I'm Jillian Keel. The director of credit cards and points and miles at the points guy. I am excited today. I have four hotel experts with me and we are going to be doing the battle of hotels. Let's start with Zach griff our travel endless. Hello Zack Hey Julian how's it going. Tell me what Cheney covering today I'll be covering my personal favorite. Hi Hi. It's a very big points in miles favorite also with us. Jt Enter our senior points and miles writer. Hello JD Jolyon. which brand do you talking about? I'll be defending is she. which is the hotel? Branwar spent the most nights this year and in the last two and a half years since going pneumatic a serious high HD HD fan. Yes all right sounds good. We've got cursor Ross and our points in miles reporter. which brand do you talking about today covering Hilton? which is my personal favorite brand? Lorenzo Hilton fans out there and then finally summer hall our director of travel here at Tgi Hud summer. How Juliet Hot Yes so I am going to be defending Mary bond boy. It is actually the program that I have had top tier status with the longest. Now hot minute since I had hiatt so I I have become a Marriott girl sort of yeah and a lot of Marriott in the news in the last year so let's start right there. What would you say for each? We'll start with you summer. What is the one thing? The one worst thing about Marriott's in one sentence from the best thing about Marriott is Saint Regis their high end properties. He's really are amazing. aspirational and something that Makes points worth it for me. So on the flip side I have had a lot of problems with the integration. They are now fully integrated program with Starwood Arwood but there was some serious serious rocky roads and lost points to get there So that was. That's been the worst part for me the last couple of years. Yeah there's been a lot of complaints about it's not just me. Yeah we'll get to that. Jt How about you. For I. H G best thing in worst thing about it. Yeah the reason why she is. The promotions are really great. The rewards program especially with credit cards. You get great night's for cheap. The worst they would definitely be a lack of hotel benefits like guaranteed late. Checkout even has a top tier. I don't get that or breakfast at all hotel brands and you're a top tier elite at a lot of hotel brands. And we'll get just a little bit Carita. As far as Hilton best thing and worse thing I would say Hilton is probably my favorite because it has the most accessible elite status so you get the most bang for your buck with your top tier status. I'd say probably the worst thing is how they tend to devalue their own points Frequently and without notice. Yeah if you're into the the point smiles but some people may just like Hiltons in general. That's true yeah. And Zach Hyatt like I said before points in miles favorite best and worst thing. Thanks for letting me take this one home because the clear clear win for high at here Hi. It's top tier. Elite status is easily the most rewarding of all of them They're fantastic about offering consistent benefits across all the different hotels whether it's confirmed sweet upgrades guaranteed late. checkouts breakfast everywhere under the sort of like exclusions that you get with some of the other chains and earning and burning points with height is super easy transferable currencies from trace and Yeah the only real issue is you can't find height everywhere Hi It's a portfolio is a little bit more limited than the other larger legacy chains but Hyatt. If it's in a place you're traveling going to. It's often the best hotel to choose but some people would argue that the key point of a hotel what you need the most is for them to be one there where you need it and that is somewhere somewhere highest serious For sure and hides doing its due diligence there. And they've had some recent acquisitions some other hotel chains so hopefully they will continue on that making a lot of party partnerships small luxury hotels taking over to Tallahassee so they have integrated more properties into their portfolio. But yes agreed. Are y'all crazy so I have heard High at yeah. They're Nice but you probably won't have one where you are and I've heard ice she. You don't really get anything being elite and I've heard Hilton. Yeah your points may be worth nothing tomorrow and yet here. y'All sit defending. These is the best loyalty programs. It's really quite entertaining. Maria does have the most hotel Marriott has close to seven thousand properties around the world. They do have legit elite status benefits. I love my free breakfasts. This is the selection. I make as a platinum when I check in and yeah they do have some properties have gone up in points but it typically isn't a surprise that just happens overnight so I think you'll lost already. We can wrap it up now. I think Mary also has its own HASHTAG bond void. It does so what is it. People who may not know what is point is is is the term that people use when they get unexpectedly screwed over by Marriott may or may not have also been yes I also was bond void So so that's no no. They might be now. How far do you have to fall when you're already starting with not much like with Marriott? You go in with high expectations tation so get knocked down a little bit. You still come out ahead. I've been bond void and yet I have also been saint. Regis it even unfair though at this point to say with that you are going in with high expectations when it comes to customer service I really I have had real problems where I had hours and hours on the phone. I've written stories about these on the points guy real frustration legit but I will say most of those are now in the rear view mirror. I'M NOT GONNA say it's not still happening to someone but a lot of the problems. uh-huh were centered around reservations made before the two programs merged and we're pretty much past the date or our past the date now. That's even possible so I'm not saying you can't that still have problems of Marriott but I can say that I'm not really having those anymore and I had some big ones. If I was still going through that day after day with Marriott I would have said Cya Nahra eh but I'm not and so instead I'm just living it up. You know at the Western snowmass and skiing out for thirty five thousand points tonight. What about that? Yeah yeah well the only issue though is right you have seven thousand hotels and you talk about you. Know you haven't been bond void nearly as frequently as maybe you are back in the day when the merger what's happening but how hotels how consistent are hotels in delivering your early benefits by upgrade. That might be a problem but in fairness I I wasn't getting the day of complimentary sweet grades frequently with high at either right but I also have four certificates that can use to confirm upgrades and each up to seven eight. Yeah exactly and we're talking about standard suites at top Tier Properties Park. Hyatt's we can go onto battle. Who has the most luxurious hotels? But I'm going to be staying in a suite and most likely as a platinum. You probably are. Well you're right however I travel with two kids so there's four of us in a room. A suite actually isn't useful anymore. It was there was a period of time where sweets were the ultimate and that is when I was a high at globalist or diamond at the time but now sweetshop one bed and then some light crummy sofa pullout so if you need a sweet you know maybe hired is a good thing to focus on for for that period of time in your life. But I'm at a time. Any beds in a room and so sweet upgrade for me is is useless most of the time. I'd rather have an awesome hotel exactly where I want it to beat beat and a few hundred more square feet most of the time speaking of upgrades one of the things about Hilton diamond status. That a lot of people complain about is that so you don't get confirmed upgrades. It's at the discretion of each individual property. Correct that's correct. I will say even though I don't have confirmed sweet upgrades. I have played in large large number of nights and home properties across the world and I've gotten upgraded on sweets on awards days on page days. Basically it's just the US. I think where you're shafted in terms of the sweet upgrades but everywhere else and the rest of the world you're getting in but you think that Hilton is at a slight disadvantage. Because of that because of these other chains that maybe do confirm Swede upgrades think it just depends on what your priorities are in the same in the same way that summer says I'd rather have a reliable quality hotel all across the world. And maybe I'll have a suite upgrade. Maybe I won't but I at least know that I'm going to have key benefits. It's available to me at a high quality level and on the flip side as far as earning top tier status. It's probably easiest with help. I'm just going to go ahead and just throughout throughout that Hilton aspire card because everyone else is just you guys have no game You know interest in terms of light barrier to entry to top Tier Diamond Status Status or top Jerry Lee Status Hilton. Has Everybody beat all you need to do his own one credit card right so with Hilton. You don't have to choose to focus all your stays on Hilton. You can just have a card and keep it in your pocket when you need. Ah The aspires a tremendous card But even if you just have the platinum or one of the less expensive Hilton Cards. That's all we had. We Have Hilton Gold status went to Bora Bora got free breakfast. All of us every single day which was like almost two hundred dollars in value and just with gold with gold status matched. Although I could've just done it for my platinum platinum card as well so I think Chris is right. There's definitely the lowest barrier to entry with Hilton But you don't actually have to make it your program if you don't want to with Marriott right you're gonNA have to make your program to get those elite benefits that you
The Bonfire of the Vanities - February 7, 1497

Lorenzo threatened to banish him. Lorenzo soon died and Savonarola Yvonne Arolla continued preaching Savonarola prophesized the scourge of Italy railing against vanity and corruption. He soon led his convent to break from the ruling organization of monasteries that it belonged to the congregation of Lombardy. He advocated for other comments to do the same and he ordered that his monks give up their possessions so that they could raise money for impoverished people once Medici rule ended. He began suggesting new policies in his sermons. Plus his prophecies were painting out. SAVONAROLA quickly became a political authority.

What is cultural fit? Do you consider it when hiring people?
"They were kind enough to Lorenzo booth for a couple of hours during the show so I wanted to give him a shout-out for this talent Tuesday episode. I want to talk about the importance of hiring people with a strong strong cultural fit for your organization as well as how leaders can often make the wrong hiring decisions when they don't know the implications of cultural fit. I've been in meetings. Were hiring. Decisions are being made after a series as of interviews with multiple candidates and inevitably the topic of cultural fit comes up companies. WANT NEW HIRES TO FIT in. It's important to fit in supporting to hire people who get along with your current employs choice people with similar values we all know that the largest component of job satisfaction is actually loving your coworkers so it makes sense that hiring people are more likely to hit the ground running from a relationship. Standpoint is important where this can become a problem for an organization is when the culture is so homogenized that no one is left challenge things that might be broken it can already be intimidating to a new employed even think of challenging ranging decision of another employee. WHO's been around longer but if none of the people you hire able to do this little broken things become big broken things and big broken things become a part of a larger broken culture but on the flip side if you as a leader foster culture that has everyone is not just encouraged but expected to challenge? Feel right little broken things get fixed before they take over. This is not easy to do because it requires new eyes on things once or too close to anything. It becomes hard to see that it's broken primarily because it seems to be working for you at the moment and it's uncomfortable to be challenged on something by someone who hasn't been around long especially being right but they were able to see the problem. You couldn't because they're new to the situation not in spite of it. If you're able to make sure all of your employees

Flighthouse CEO Jacob Pace on building a media company on TikTok
"Welcome to the digital podcast. I'm Brian Marcy this weekend. Georgia Jacob Jacob is the CEO of Flight House. which if you don't aflaid houses digital digital media company most tectonic but beyond tectonic does stout a number of us what like a billion a month billing vis a month? Yeah twenty one million subscribers bribers on Tick Tock Jacob. Himself is Gen Z.. CEO You described as a baby face of a baby face. Mogul that works. Twenty five eight and also The New Yorker said that Jacob has the radic energy of champion sled dog on on a break. How accurate do you think that is both say? We'll see weirdly Jacob. The same thing has been said about me. Oh why energy. So let's let's talk about. Let's talk about Flight House first and then then how you got involved but like for those who are unfamiliar. Who might not be inflate houses You you know. Target demographic explain it. Yeah for sure. So essentially flight house is Basically the largest entertainment brand on six right now so we're really the only ones producing original content So for anyone. That's not familiar with like tick tock. Of course it's a short form mobile APP a little similar to just kind of like a newer sort of breed of it right. Yeah And even like you know Taylor Lorenzo's point who was like on this podcast like she's like it's just way more robust than vine and just a lot more editing features. A different kind of sense of humor. Humor so essentially a very simple way of like describing us to someone that might not be familiar as like. We're the you know. Think about this as like a buzzfeed complex of tick tock so we're producing original content while everyone else is kind of you know creators in their own right. But we're making individual sort of tick Tock Stars and whatnot like what you're doing and is your building a brand brand. Yeah exactly so explain. I mean you have series. We have a serious so one of our biggest ones. Actually which I think to date has probably done over. I would say in the range of like one to two hundred million views. Overall is this one called Finish the tick tock later. That's cool. Yeah those those always do really well. I think the first when we upload it did like thirty million views on the first episode and it just went super crazy on the platform also explain. I mean it's always weird. You have to explain tectonics not yeah do explain for those who've who have not seen it at how or how it works super simple So obviously finished. The lyric is kind of a popular segment. It's kind of around the Internet right like like on Youtube and instagram. We've seen it where a popular song is played. And then the two guests that are playing it Essentially it stops at a certain point. Where like let's say it's the hook and then whoever presses the Buzzer I had dreams where I can't move Thing and guesses the lyric correctly wins inking of of you. So we've basically taken that segment and introduced it specifically for Tick Tock so we get big talk traders as well as You know big take talk songs kind of in the mix and so you have all these kind of very relevant names to the platform like guessing the lyric and it's like very interactive with the audience. Okay so explain tick tock songs. Yeah not ever hold this like familiar with that word subculture of its own. I mean you know I think old town roads. That's probably the biggest example of that. And then you have songs like la La la You know by whites. UK and BB. No money Released all these different records that are blowing up added Tick Tock I think as of recent we've seen that Arizona's Urfa Song Roxanne for Drug San Right now. I'll come on on this. Let's stick nick with with Old Town road. All right we'll see the big one hip to Tanaz. Yeah exactly but now explain I mean there. There are a lot of songs that blow up up until now so I mean this this is John Nra The the complete the lyrics like they exist outside of ticked on. Yeah I mean it's you know it's you adapted it to tick Tock back So basically a lot of these songs Blow up on Tick Tock right so a lot of these creators and users and when I say creators as I mean anyone from the big you know multi-million users to even just people that have a few thousand Get behind these different trends and essentially you know make talks if everyone kind of gets on the same page. That's an old town road happens differen- But a lot of these records the music industry right now is like really really really really prioritizing talk because obviously the the known ways of blowing up records are like spotify apple music youtube and so talking aways like a new soundcloud to the music industry. Okay you know on soundcloud. You had a lot of these artists like you know the whole soundcloud rap wave like pomp. And whoever and even billy ILITCH got big on on southbound right So now it's breeding a lot of these artists like soundcloud where you have You know little Nasdaq's and whites UK and Arizona and so that's kind of where part of our business model fits in is sort of working with the music industry to figure out the best way to kind of engage tick tock So they kind of promote their records so tick tock itself Self Sununu type of platform. So what makes media that works on Tick Tock I mean. We've I think a lot of us have seen who aren't on talk you know. Have I've seen the compilations and stuff like this. And there's a lot of creativity there but how do you translate that into into media. You know. Series repeatability yeah. I mean I think we're sort of scratching the surface on that right now Obviously I think in media there's a way to kind of entertain your audience where you sort give them the low hanging fruit and then over time you try to reel them into something That's a little bit sort of Bigger than that initial concept right so our way of kind of Are Low hanging fruit was finished a toddler. We kind of knew that if we gave them a product that was easily digestible. They'd be able to Kinda take face value but then I think as we kind of go forward it's like how do we make it less. SORTA talk specific and more flight. How specific and how does our brand really show and You know I think I was thinking about this the other day. I definitely think that you know one of the things that really make successful. Content of ours is interactivity so when we can kind of create a series where our audiences can kind of play along and they kind of do that with finish the tick tock lyric right like when they're watching it. They kind of feel like they're playing along as well and they can kind of guess. The lyric Kinda jump in there and I think that there's probably a huge factor for the success in our content. What are some other series? The F- We have finished the tick tock lyric. We have another one called Shit Talk Right now where we basically get artists that actually when we pull it up right now you see podcast Jacob. Yeah we have a lot of really a lot of cool new ones that were kind of rolling out right now but let me ask you this. Is there anything that you tried on tic TAC. That didn't work and why. Oh I didn't work Yeah we've had a lot of series that we've kind of rolled out that haven't done as well as finished at six and we try to make educated guesses as to why they don't work can again. I think interactivities kind of one of those ones that we always fall back on is like if we can make it as interactive as we can. It's always gonNA perform better Oh Yeah we have another one called like Suggestion box basically like fans will kind of jump in and Okay so interactive seems to be under activity read for sure for sure on talk for sure and then like even you know one that that didn't do as well as we wanted. It's Hugh But that was a really cool series was We had this one called it. was basically artist trippy. Read sure yes. So he was on. He was on Flight House recently. And it was this series called love advice with trippy red and and we actually got him a relationship therapist Inside our facility and trippy basically went through like fan comments of like Them them wanting relationship advice in Lubbock is and him in the relationship that are pissed with kind of like answer the questions and give advice and it okay On talk it has like I think three hundred four hundred thousand views on youtube right now which is like decent in our is But I think it wasn't as interactive. It was more of it was more of a one way thing versus like a two way interactive thing you know and I think that's just kind of what we're trying to build right now. So how do you see the type of media that works on Tick Tock. Different from the type of media works on say snapchat. Yeah it's pretty similar. I mean I think tick tock we definitely try to target it's at its Gen Z.. Culture Like just hyper focused on that. Like who are the artists that they find very relevant to the tick Tock Stars that they find really relevant snapshots pretty similar because is it is sort of mobile. I and the way that you sort of consume content is like vertical. It's mobile and like that's how we produce all of ours has Tom. I have a younger audience. Are you aiming for a different type of audience than than you would. I mean it depends on how you define that right like after like thirteen. Eighteen to seventeen right now a big portion of our audiences around thirteen to twenty okay and mostly female thing about snapchat though and I will say this is something that we don't do on talk is the graphics snapshots very graphic. It'll like a lot of stuff moving like in Ou- spinning For us as we try to just keep it focused on the person for now but we're experimenting with a lot of stuff even next year. Okay so who makes this stuff. We have team. Yeah so we have editor Tina. The seventeen year olds or their house. Yeah I know we're all kind of in our twenty something. Okay Yeah so you know we've been around the block. He's a Dovan stuff go. Yeah Yeah so how did you become involved with. You didn't start flight. Oh No so when I was around eighteen. You're you're like brought in as as the the old guy. Yeah exactly yes. So when I was eighteen I was working at our parent company. Create Music Group where I'd been there for a couple years because The one of the cofounders flew out when I was like sixteen and I just did a lot of business development and anr for them. And at the time I was trying to figure out like new creative ways to kind of promote our artists and so I saw musically. 'cause I was just very familiar with the space and I saw this page called Flight House and I just kept seeing everywhere so when it was at like a million followers Reached Out Start it's Kinda work with the kids that started it who were probably like a year two younger than I was at the time it was two brothers and we sort of brought them in and we acquired The brand from them and then just they were just like creating content on their own so it wasn't even original content. At the time it was it was like remixes so basically on musically there was sort of a library of music that users can tap into right so they'd offer all the top forty songs and in you know any song that was pretty much put out by a major label and where Flight House got big was they would upload sort of sped up at its and slowed down and remix versions of songs And the users on musically sort of found that to be like a valuable enough thing to follow a paid for and so some of these remixes would get like you know ten thousand one hundred thousand sometimes up to a million repos on musically at the time and that sort of how it started and then as it turned into tick tock we were like all right. Let's figure you're out a way that this can be more than just a remix sort of brand.

"lorenzo" Discussed on MotoWeek - MotoGP, Motorcycle and Racing News
"Then I would argue that having been tested every single round could actually help his case right now. Why will because if he had tested in every single other around round negative negative negative negative negative negative negative all the sudden positive pops up? That would stick out as the anomaly. That would naturally make you think that. Hey why would somebody who's been negative. Every single round of the season suddenly choose to do something now when he knows he's GonNa get tested right. It would make you think that maybe there's a really good chance that something did happen by accident here. I mean because really if you know you're going to get tested and then you test positive the only two options Shinzo there are. It was either a mistake. or You'd have to be an absolute idiot to try and get away with something when you know. The test is coming so in that respect if it was an accident if then it would have helped you known. As case had they changed the rules a long time ago to make it this way but because they don't then yeah we may have previous tests in the past that showed that he wasn't juicing that everything was negative but nothing recent you know we don't know maybe he was taking one time. Maybe you said all season long and he just never got tested that ninety four percent chance comes back in there where he thinks you know. I got really really really good chance of getting away with this and I really need to up my game so I'm going to try and up my game. I don't know so. I really honestly think that testing every rider every round would be the ideal situation but at the very least. You've gotTA tests riders some riders every round. Whether it's three whether it's six it's gotta be more then. Just you know a five point. Seven percent chance of getting caught. If you're juicing one hundred percent of the time I mean that's crazy all right so with with Andrea now. I'm sure we'll find out more in the coming days and weeks. What's going to happen next with them? Let's talk about some other riders and rumors instead starting with or. Hey Lorenzo Enzo Oh and by the way if you WanNa comment on the you know nice stuff for the big comments show coming up next facebook dot com slash motorway dot net or read. It are slash mode week. All right so let's move underhill Lorenzo. Because he didn't interview with Modo San a little over a week ago where he confirmed that a test rider gig with Yamaha is quote one of his options options that he currently has on the table. Now he didn't say what other options he may be considering. But I would imagine that it's only a matter of time before before a deal is announced because I imagine that a Yamaha Test Roger Deal is probably the best thing that's come down the pike for him so far now who went on to say that one of the main reasons that he retired was to have more time to devote to other endeavors and being able to continue to have that time now to these out of motor. GP was one of his main concerns. I'm not quite it. Sure if he was suggesting more a Casey stoner style schedule because Casey was legendary for wanting to test specifically when he wanted to test not not necessarily when the manufacturer wanted him the test and I kind of added to some of the friction especially between him and do county near the end there with the whole poster boy comments that was one of the components. Opponents is that Casey really wanted to kind of keep his own schedule and I imagine Yamaha would want something a bit. More focused a bit more organized than that but believe it or not. I think Lorenzo probably would like that same thing too. I don't think that he really wants to go into a test role and not make progress me and especially if it means that he could take that Yamaha and make it more competitive behind the scenes because it's strange as it sounds. I think he would consider it the same as a win if he gets on. The bike starts developing it. And then all the sudden Valentino Rossi sticks around and gets better and better and better and eventually gets back on the top step of the podium but only because of the input that Lorenzo had because let's face it where Lorenzo in Valentine Ross. You're never gonNA race each other again and Lorenzo a lot of people a lot of people out. There pointed Lorenzo as one of the keys to Rossi's later success and then they point to the effect that he had on do Khadi after that. It's more evidence of it while trust me. If Lorenzo comes back the Yamaha and the bike suddenly gets better after his presence is felt then. I think that he's going to let everybody know how much much of a role he had the play and it actually would be a bigger win for him if his direct input was the key to getting Rossi back on top. You know speaking speaking of the doctor. Let's move onto him now. Because cycle world did an interview with Valentine Rossy where he was asked about Lorenzo as a test rider and he said he thought it would be a great idea because well it would be and I don't know how he would react if he started winning again and Lawrence tried to take credit for it they would probably be a little bit of friction there but in the end I think that he would be more accepting of Hillary's contributions when it comes without the chance that beat him on track with those contributions because I think he could then turn around and say well you can't prove that it was just him because I went out there and rode the bike so Valentine Rossi's no dummy especially in his old age and so he knows that if peaking get somewhere if he can use toll to be able to get himself back to where he wants to be. It's worth that. Especially if he can then explain it away because he's a master uh-huh positioning things in just the rally framing things in just the right lane to make himself look the best. But of course in that interview cycle world it was inevitable that the retirement question in came up and it ended up being kind of the bulk of the discussion for the most part Rossi pretty much told the party lines stuff. We've heard out of before that he still has the same level of motivation now that he did years ago that he'll keep going as long as he feels. He can be competitive and that he's expecting to make a firm decision on twenty twenty one by sometime mid season although he's already already kind of feeling the pressure because everybody gets stuff done so early when it comes to silly season Although I did find it interesting things interesting. In his answers I and one of them was a big deal. The other one not so much the the smaller thing is I did find it kind of interesting that he said his family was all in agreement that he should keep on racing and that he had to remind them that everybody has to be realistic about his chances of being competitive against the field of continuing to perform at the highest level. Now I would think that they're only saying that because valley brings in the big bucks but I mean let's face it money isn't going to be a problem for anybody in the Rossi clan. So I guess that means they really truly one to keep racing so but the interesting part the real interesting part the quasi suggestion that he be okay riding leading Peronist by cycle world. Kinda bent this a little bit in some other sites. Did I think they more out of these comments than what Rossi actually meant. Because he didn't really say. Hey Ah I would like to ride a bike. That would be fine by me. If it extends my career. No Problem No. He didn't really say that at all. The context was actually a discussion. Shen about maverick. PENOLA is not about Rossi himself. But Valentino being Valentino was pretty much suggesting that Fabio quarrel is going to be a a big part of Yamaha's future and him riding a monster Yamaha to valet was more important than maverick Daniela's routing amounts to Yamaha so Rossi was saying. Hey if I choose to stick around. I don't see why maverick should be upset with being banished determinist because hey after all that bike is is just as capable of being competitive as the one. I'm writing right now. So the discussion really started with Valentino. Saying I'm going to do what I WANNA do. Fabio kwacha Ro is the second most important thing to me. So if I make the decision to demote Malvo he should be okay with that kind of feeling he was going for there. But then when the interviewer very wisely turned back around on the doctor and said Oh well if the Petropolis bike is that good would you be okay going to that one. He said Well it wouldn't be so bad but then he qualified that by saying but you never know maybe five. You'll go somewhere else. Maybe Maverick goes somewhere else. Probably won't have to deal with that one way or the other now. I think that what he meant in that entire conversation is that it wouldn't be a bad thing to demote maverick violas. I don't think he was really referring to himself at all in that line of questioning but he kind of opened the door for it to I mean he really stuck his foot in his mouth by saying it was so good eh shouldn't matter so he kind of had the begrudgingly. Say Well you know. It's it's a good enough bike and wouldn't be so bad to have to go there. I don't know that he would really do that though. Because because on one hand the series is so competitive right now. There's so many factory backed current your bikes on the grid that there is going to come a time when a top Tier Ryder. Maybe even a former champ will take a satellite ride willingly most likely so they can get on a more desirable bike and heck that's evidenced by the fact that we're Lorenzo was seriously considering arrive with patroness or arrive with to Kati because those bikes are so close now and when the team already signed at the factory level. It's like you said it's it's not so bad like valley said it's not so bad necessarily so that would be the plus that would be the thing the reason I would think that more champions now in the future we consider it down the road but on the other hand it is still a satellite team. And this is Valentino Rossi. We're talking about here. I Amine Ego definitely factors. In fact only one rider ever has written the satellite bike after winning a Premier Class Championship Championship in the motor. GP Aaron that rider. Of course nicky. Hayden a guy who you know is one of the most humble guys in the entire garage. So it's a completely different story aury from someone like Valentine Rossi or Marc Marquez or even where Lorenzo for that matter I mean yeah who are considered Petronas. Yes he consider pre-match but did he actually do it no. He retired before he had to go down to one of those teams. So I'm not quite sure that Valet would want to be the one to set that precedent on a longer term basis of being a champ that steps back to a satellite team. But I don't think I think that a satellite team would actually be the worst thing really. I mean in a twenty twenty one scenario that would allow him to stay in the sport which is really important in terms of Dan interest. I am marketing and merchandising. Those are big things for both Yamaha am for door. Not In the pressure would be off. I mean if he finishes on the podium great but if not well he's on a satellite. I'd like it's not the end of the world and he wouldn't be holding up a seed from another young rider. Like Fabio quarrel and it would ensure that stays with Yamaha. Offi knows that he's going to move up but that being said I don't know if Petronas would be the right place for him to ride a satellite bike because like I said a second ago what is Valentine Rossi. You've got the ego the worry about here I think the only way the Valentino Rossi could move to a satellite bike emoto GP and still kind of satisfy his ego would still make sense is if that satellite bike was with his own team. I mean that would make sense to fans and it would feel feel justified in the sense that hey I'm stepping down. I'm offering my own services to launch this. Vr forty-six team make sure that they start on good footing with good results. It's and the best development right now. Of course the way the Petronas immediately establish themselves in this series and specifically with Yamaha. I think that could actually delay.
The 'On Point' Iowa Caucus: Where Do Voters Stand?
"This is on point Magneto Birdie. We're doing something a little bit different this hour. Were experimenting with an on Point Mini Caucus. Because the Iowa caucuses or about three weeks away now and so we're kind of we've created this metaphorical room in our minds. Eye Radio version of a Iowa precinct. Here and seeing what Iowa voters think as they look towards basically casting their first votes In this presidential election season we started out the hour hearing from supporters of Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders before the break. We I heard from two neighbors in Cedar Rapids Iowa. Who won who was all in for Mayor Pete Buddha Judge and another and Solomon who is still going to stand the corner for Cory Booker and wait to see who might convince her to move somewhere else and now? Let's talk about people tussling over Vice President Joe Biden. Here's the moment yesterday from the Democratic presidential debate in Des Moines. Where former vice president Biden really noted his broad support? He said that he has nationally so here he is look. I've been the object. She's affection now more than anybody else. I taken all the hits. He can deliver. And I'm getting better better in the polls my going up and by the way I have overwhelming support from the African American community overwhelming more than everybody else in this operation Vice President Joe the last night and when he said I've been the object of his affection now more than anybody else on the stage. The vice president was referring to President. Donald Trump. Let's go to Jane Who's calling from Fairfield Iowa Jane. You're on the air what who do you think you're going to be caucusing for thank you very much for your show My my husband and I have had The same issues as I think it was very league. Who wasn't sure who she was going to vote for In the caucuses who she was gonNA side with And Our experience was that there were a lot of good ideas out there that you know when we went to see each candidate we thought yeah. That's a good idea. Or that's a good idea. And that's a good idea and then about two weeks ago we went into See Joe Biden in Grinnell and we realized by you know listening to him being with him. Yeah that we were for sure going to call 'cause for him and The reasons I mean I know I have to be sync but One thing is that he can take the reins of the government immediately He doesn't he's completely capable. Oh and he's he's He's very cogent. His answers were extremely informative and comprehensive comprehensive. He's very competent and other reason is that he he wasn't ranking about anything he was. We felt much better or from being with him because we feel that the ideas presented by most of the candidates will find their way to policy in the united the states. But this is a man who is kind is only mentioned his generous of heart and he's very competent. So we I feel like he has the best chance of unifying that country anything else important. It's unify the country's right. Well Jane thank you so much for your call. Let's go to Robert. WHO's calling from Grinnell Iowa Robert? You're on the air. Hello yes we're we are definitely definitely caucusing for Bernie the last time around we caucus for burning. We knew eight at vowed. Second Amendment voter never voted re- democrat in his his life he caucus for Bernie. It was about healthcare Bernie is willing to make changes. People voted for trump. Because they wanted a change they. I didn't want things as they were. Which is what Hillary is not going to change anything? They wanted changes so they voted for trump. Because it was it it was a vote for either no change or vote for change and they voted for trump. That's why we've caucusing for Bernie Bernie is willing to change things. So that means that you definitely wouldn't caucus for senator. Sorry doing that. Vice President Joe Biden not definitely not Biden. Okay okay. We'll Robert. Thank you so much for your call now. Okay we've heard from various folks who have their mindsets on their on their candidates but it turns out that about right now in Iowa. Iowa seems as if undecided voters undecided. Iowans might be forming the biggest block of Iowa caucus goers. Let's talk to go back into our own point caucus caucus room and talk to to currently undecided Iowans. The Real Wenzel joins us from Waterloo Iowa. She's Laura's director of marketing for Ymca of black of county and is currently decided perhaps leaning towards Andrew Yang Laurel. Welcome to you. Hello it's great to have you and also also from Cedar Rapids Iowa. Tom Fuller joins us. Tom is a retired maintenance supervisor. For the city of Cedar rapids. Tom Is currently undecided. As well did did have his heart on senator or his mindset on Senator Kamala Harris before she dropped out of the race so Tom Welcome to you. Okay so Laura let me ask you first here here. Whoa what's keeping you undecided right now? What have you not found in any of the candidates that you feel like you can throw your full support behind a unifying presence? I think is what I don't see in any of the candidates especially last night on the debate stage age. I was really disappointed that there is nobody that was wanting to come by Ya with the rest of the candidates and be like. Let's do this together because is inevitably. That is what is GonNa Happen. Ray Inevitably we're GONNA have one candidate and it's going to be Democrat versus Republican. But I don't feel like anybody is on the same page on that stage and it's frustrating. Because I want a unified spirit within the party which is why I go to caucus because I go to caucus for the policies of the Party as well as the policies of the individual. Okay so tom you actually truly still undecided or you kinda trying to be leaning one way or the other well I'm still undecided. I am I to me. It seems like we have a a large field of very qualified qualified people and so That makes the decision harder because they're all good so what I'm considering going to is Someone that can immediately restore our credibility With the world We think we're the laughing stock now. And I think we need to regain our The Mantle of leadership and respect and get our credibility back back and a friend of mine who was a cory booker supporter. Very adamant he just the next day went to Joe Biden very strongly and so I've been looking at Ah Biden That would pretty much. I hope restore credibility with the world pretty much outta the gate and it seems to me that when you have this confusing Mass of people that having somebody with the roots being with Obama and all of his is years in the Senate That sort of a direct line with all these other candidates kind of warming around rounded doesn't let me if I may just let me just tip toeing here again Because Lorenzo did I hear you Kinda side it was very strong side regarding regarding Joe. Ab Thinking about Joe Biden. But you're it sounds like anybody but joe I mean I think that it's a fallacy to assume that his credibility outside of the United States is going to provide any sense of security when he's an office I think that unfortunately impeachment aside the The investigation that trump was going going for it has really broken thy confidence in Joe Biden. And that's something that we haven't really heard at least I haven't heard much about Out You can be darn that he's GonNa late into that on the debate stage if Biden becomes the nominee. And and. I'm concerned I'm concerned. It's going to be another Hillary Clinton where you know you supporter. You'll like her and then all of a sudden this thing comes out and it's like Oh okay so. Let's listen coin to unify unify the party. So let me ask both of you got a couple minutes left with the two of you and Tom. I'll start with you. Is there anything that you heard from your fellow Iowans this hour. That might convinced you one way or the other not yet the to women's that go to the same church or re really really Enlightening and I'm going to re listen to this and Listen carefully to what they had to say. Cedar Rapids Nothing you know. No no we pick for many yet. it's still not three weeks certainly very interesting points. They made I still think maybe I'm I'm leaning towards Biden Haydn The reason that trump went after him I feel like trump thinks that he's the strongest candidate and and that's why he attacked him. I'm hurry everybody thinks he's the strongest candidate. I mean you can see it on the debate stage last night. They wanted to give Elizabeth Warren the last word and then all of a sudden Biden was able to rebuttal before the commercial break. I mean everybody expects Joe Biden to win this nomination Shannon I I think that's the disappointing thing is that We we have all of our hopes and dreams and this guy that is just. She's tired he looks tired. He looks you know like like he has so much that he wants to give by. He physically is just not going to be able to do it. And I I understand. Stay on that So that's why I'm just like you know you are. You are a great idea and if you could just throw your support against another our candidate I feel like that would be best in the end but you know that's not GonNa Happen for alcock Laurel. Did you hear anything this hour. That might have helped clarify in the direction. You're going to go in a couple of weeks. You know I did I. Did you know I've been. I've been fighting with my interest in Elizabeth Warren. Because I remember when I first saw her on the daily show with John Stewart and she reminded minded me of my history professor. Because that's what she wants and I have been fighting with that instinct to feel you know cast down in by her in a sense like she knows everything but at the same time I do feel like she has the best candidate on that stage and that her policies are really about the people they impact. They will impact me and my family with my son who needs long-term long term care Because he's disabled I just I'm ready for a woman. I'm ready for that feminine touch so I really if you like between the debate last night and what I heard today Elizabeth Warren seems like the best win and if I might interject I thought thought we'd be passed having I've having to think about either having a man or woman and that we would just be at the place where or we would pick. The best person is really. We've never we have that. We're not that far down the road yet. We shouldn't gender shouldn't matter it should just be the best person and it's I'm I'm pretty disappointed that we haven't gone on that far yet. Well Tom Fuller from Cedar Rapids Iowa. Tom Thank you so much for joining us in our little mini any caucus here really appreciate supporter and definitely go back. And listen on radio DOT ORG. That's where you're gonNA find it okay. Let us know what you think about. What an libby had to say and and Laura Wenzel from Waterloo Iowa? Thank you so much for joining us in our little mini caucus room here seeing you. It was a great opportunity and I hope that everybody everybody that's the thing goes out and caucus on February third. Yeah same here definitely and everybody should always participate in the electoral process as much as they possibly awesome. Cancel Laura thank you again okay. So that that was worthy more fascinating hours that I've had a chance to listen to so let me turn back to our on point news analyst Jack Beatty the Marvelous Jack Beatty. Who's been listening in from Hanover? New Hampshire Jack. We've got about two and a half minutes left here. What did you hear well? Well I heard voters who were just not only interested but intensely interested and and and and Laurel we actually. We heard an informed. Cy I mean even her. Cy was informative. We knew what she meant. And and it you know the one of the knocks on the caucus focus is undemocratic he to the no secret ballot. You've got to stand at a at a at a place for polling placer church basement for hours you've got to do it in public but on the other hand that encourages people to talk in public and look how these people talked to each each other. Not Past each other met. The arguments met the objections. Saw The merit In the other person's point of view it seems to me it modeled old Iowa's citizenship at its best. I I would agree right. I mean hearing hearing and in Libby and Lorella Lorella and Tom and and Barney and Mike all engage with each other was really inspirational. But as you said the actual caucus itself I mean I read someone described it a sort of like. It's almost a student council student president election because it can be so wild but to your original. Appoint though Jack was made at the beginning of the hour we've got about thirty seconds left here. Is there anything that you heard in these voters. That changes your your concern that you know. The Iowans wins. Don't really pick winners. Well their concern to pick a winner and that may matter as much as anything I mean. I didn't hear here purity. I didn't hear someone saying well. My commitment is to this candidates ideas above everything. Everyone seemed to hedge. I want onto winner. Maybe they'll pick one right. That definitely came through loud and clear with with all of our Iowa state but the reasons why they think their candidates might be a winner. We're quite different from one another which was absolutely fascinating so Jack Beatty Point News analyst with us from Hanover. New Hampshire the New Hampshire primary hot on the heels of the Iowa Caucus. Jack ackward diving all in now. Thank you so much for joining us today.

"Promoting a healthy mind body and spirit through sports. That I get that right Lorenzo. Yes absolutely correct. I mean those are the really the four pillars of my life go to allow me to be successful and I'm just trying to embark in transition that same type wisman pay for it to the next generation especially in households. That don't have a father father or or you know maybe with grandparents or don't have the economic resources in the gain access and just trying to fill the gaps where I can and doing different programs have different collaborations in various cities that I've been in so that's really the past and My True Passion is you're serving comed- especially young women that come from neighborhoods That that I grew up in which is what. What kind of neighborhood did you grow up in an offer from California inner see Grit with a single parent. Bob Did excellent the job but Obviously awful stepped in as well but I mean I have cousins that you know what the prison you know selling dope gang violence shootings and so That's obviously the ideal situation to raise a kid up in affiliates to really overcome environment. And so I just try to provide resources programming and enhance. What other people have already are already doing To help these these young people Because oftentimes you can identify yourself and be identified the other people people by where you come from and I'M A testament to and most of other guys come from Oakland and similar In the cities is that we all have the ability the overcome that we have a great spirit inside of us that it's not a fair but of loved powder sound mind and you have the right people cultivating that in you. You can achieve great things and not get caught up the shortsightedness of what some some of the other things may bring you immediately. You know as far as maybe money women cars and stuff that does not really legacy based aced inside is try to help people obviously with the the resources but also they mind and and how they view their perspective on the world and and who they are and how they fit in. How did you manage to avoid similar pitfalls that other family members did not get through I mentioned I mean markle Stephen Moore Probably the most vital figuring that because he plays that father figure role he'll never claim to that. But that's the way I look at it in the way I love him and especially because he had the three daughters had his own family and being a family man now. There's no how much time it takes to now. Added additional trout. That you really care about the poor into and then amongst other her Coaches that I had I even had a cousin that was that was in that lifestyle to really step up and didn't allow me to even partaking any of it and when he was a couple years older than me and then he used to always threaten it. And if I catch you out here streets It's GonNa be me and you and so he was bigger our scared in a sense and so I have a lot of Gratitude for what he did for me as well now not fighting the answer that push me away and so I've just been blessed to have people like that to really look for me Special in my life and so that's how they would avoid you know wasn't because I was just great person but I have people standing in the right direction. Those men did a great job. And more important you did a great job and you're to be commended. I mean it's just outstanding the career that you've put together the impact that you've had the life's the lives that you've helped shape ape. All those things is testament to you. And it's while you're a five-time Walter Payton manning year nominee including each of the last received with the bills. Well how do you know win that award. It's been great man every year. I mean you think about the guys that have been up for it. I mean Thomas Davis if his Gerald Who Chris Long Win it last year? I mean so there's a lot of guys film in A lot of great men in our league in I think that oftentimes gets overlooked. So it's just it's just cool to be a nominee and represent. Obviously they made him a little bit represent the man in our league and all the great work that we do and so I know we have Several guys that are beginning this year that have been a lifelong committed to the community. Not Think about a car. Rudolph back up a Richard Sherman Guys that I know and in really respected. So you know it's great to win it but We're all doing great work regardless of who comes home with the award right. You're all winners. But it would be great if you can win it in your final. NFL season this year. Be Awesome I mean obviously brings additional resources to the Buffalo in Oakland community and so it would be great to have that recognition. You know kind of Augosto on me. You bring up the Buffalo in Oakland communities. Where will you live now that you're NFL careers over? Yeah we actually being PHOENIX I had I played a couple of years. There Really love that area. I've seen more for the most part year round. You know being an old beat up guys always great to wake up to some warmth For your joints cost of living. Great is a lot of. NFL players have a lot of plant. That have That was ideal now and so we have like a natural community. Kind kind of built up for us Because that is the hardest thing that you transition is the locker room aspect that you get every single day and so it's great to kind of have that kind of already set up In the Phoenix Area Force. And so we're very excited about that. That move and getting out there and here in the next couple of weeks or I love that area. That's a great area and yeah you have to get around the golfing often. which is some point or something like that I know how do you play? Yeah I play a little bit. I'm a lot more than I've done. I know because it's it's hard to get out there. Walker course swing when club. I used to be so all the time so I'm looking forward to it. You know early in the podcast ahead on Jerry Rice. We made a plan to go to the peleton studios in New York City together. I want to make a plan with Lorenzo Alexander Zander to play around the golf with him at some point time. When are you gonNA go penalty to? That's all that stuff. I got one at the House. Oh isn't it awesome and Jerry and I were talking about that. Who who's your favorite instructor? I love Alex. Probably Ali love those are my to go to I'm Robin in there for a while but when I really want to get after this is Alex Tucson is the man right on another wait on another level. Yeah he's phenomenal. Nama and you know what it was funny. One day I was on there and he responded to one of my instagram stories. And I'm like Alex to set the man himself responding to one of my stories though he was a big throw. wrote for me right. Yeah yeah that's don't right there and he. It was pretty neat this year. That okay before I let you go. Lorenzo I have to ask you your thoughts on this buffalo bills team. I'm a bitter loss on Saturday. One of these years the fans there will get the joy of winning another playoff game. But what do you think the future holds for this buffalo bills those team in the direction. It's now under what the players it has. The organization is definitely prime to repeat what we did this year having that success and take it the next step and win a playoff game and the reason why I say that is because of this. The young talent that is on that team you know. Kind of headline biopsy Josh challenge balanced me damage. Your baby is white and then you have better Georgia Mike. Hi I'm GonNa have guys like John Brown coming back co Beasley off. The line is going to be solidified over. They bring us Spain Spain back. And what all those guys. I'm naming the young roderick talented guys. I like that year. We went to the playoffs in two thousand seventy. We're we're kind of like a a mosh bag of these players and talent kind of piece together and we were able to you know because we have to at least make this team Sean and prime to be together for at least three to four years And so with the cat room that they're gonNA have this year and then the way that the Scott Department of the coaching staff Evaluating wait and bring in players free agency as well as draft is. They're gonNA make some. I know they're gonNA make the right moves and ask them to help them Get over that Hump and really really be a a real contented sheer by beating those elite teams in the regular season. They take that to the playoffs with a playoff game. So that's kind of my prediction. Just kind of looking at it. You inside knowing how shot is built the team culture and just how the guys have responded and so there won't be any drop off because I'm not there because I've had impact my power. Wheels had an impact on me with the men in there and I see several guys stepping up the field for which need on the team really bring everybody together especially to deal with adversity in Definitely exceed what we did this before. Legal Lorenzo what do you think it will be like when you sit down at your home in Phoenix next September to watch your first. NFL game probably the Buffalo Bills Reaction as you. Watch your former team. Go to work without you. I it probably a little bitter sweet Obviously I love to go out there and compete but I know what it feels like Monday through Saturday. On my body so I'll be happy in one. Regard is sad adding another But I'll definitely be happy rooting for him so I'm not Quite hit me yet because right now. It's Kinda like regular season schedule so I don't have a couple apple hurdles April then training camp with hopefully by then transition but Definitely rooting for those guys and definitely Instead if the success that if they have next year and what if somebody calls you in August September. We've an injury. We needed to replace help by doing that. They call him an like sound John. I might come off. The fence Marchand Hall Trail Game. That's Mike I it's not get a playoff game or maybe in the first round by I can come back for three games the AFC championship in the Super Bowl. That's that's probably all. I got left in me so that you do that you do that. You're open to yeah. I would do that if they called me. And they needed somebody body Off the best like that okay. I'm putting that on the ESPN bottom line. Lorenzo Alexander is open to return to twenty twenty one season for a playoff run for a contending team. No no for the bills for the bills just for the bills rials. Let's make that perfectly clear. We got all the conditions under which what you would call very very particular requirements varies. Fake News come off the bench for well. I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA keep that in mind next season if buffalo happens to suffer a key injury at linebacker or to a special teams player. I'M GONNA keep you in mind. So we'll we'll keep that in mind. We'll keep our golf match. gotcha mind perhaps. We'll take a spin class together with Alex and Lorenzo congratulate you on an outstanding career. A more than what you did for the Buffalo Bills and the Oakland Raiders and the Arizona Cardinals. The Washington redskins the four teams. That you played four for thirteen seasons was the work that you did for various people in various communities tremendous job. And I wish you luck in the Walter Peyton Man of the year award. I'm rooting for you to Super Bowl. No disrespect to any of the other nominees. I appreciate your brother Man. Thank you for having me on all right coming up next on. ESPN analytics grew. Evan Kaplan but first a word from ziprecruiter in New Year and you want.
"lorenzo" Discussed on The Adam Schefter Podcast
"Year. NFL veteran who announced his retirement after the bills wildcard loss at Houston. Lorenzo Alexander. Renzo thank you very very much for taking time today much appreciated. My pleasure fishers own Adam. Well here's my question for you. How does a guy who is an undrafted drafted free agent in two thousand five? That goes to training camp with the Carolina Panthers with nobody in Carolina expecting much of anything have long. NFL career that just winds up now where he's a two time pro bowl player the defensive mvp of the two thousand seventeen pro bowl played in the final title. Ninety six games of your career the second longest active streak among linebackers. Before your time on Saturday. Five Time Walter. Payton man of the year nominee including get your last three seasons in Buffalo. How does all that happen? Drafted free agent from five. I mean in my mind is only God's house blessings and and what I mean by that is he's put Great people in my life. You know really starting to at an early age and I have my father's house but he tried them all. Steve Foods my coach coach really played that role and create a great foundation in from there. I can name numerous coaches and players that really poured into my life. My career's headed handed off. The field. probably highlighted probably by Danny special teams coach in Washington. and also run the Fletcher. I had opportunity play with your washing for quite a long time but amongst those men there were many of these Just really helped me out and I think from my perspective was I really grew up in those first couple of years. Because I think like most NFL athletes. You've been the man your whole life. The whole life visit me. I didn't get drafted so that was worse than that in the face and I got a couple of times and so that really may motivated. Ovadia meal really gave me a different perspective on what I needed to do to raise my game professionalism to another level in order to give myself an opportunity just to get a chance to get on the A C or make the team and so with that I took advantage of it And again just always trying to stay coach always trying to learn and try to grow each and every single year a year even as I made the transition to multiple position and just never got complacent at route was at because I saw a lot of guys come in with a lot of great talent but didn't end Achieving what they set out to do so I tried to take note of those things learn from mistakes and not make it my own and also taking things from my God. Like I say they your money Fletcher at Your Car Williams Just list goes on and on with guys all save caliber guys even issue with Frank Gore that you get to be around and learn from and so I think good. That's what Really allowed me to take you know a very humble beginnings almost no chance no shock ever make it and turn it into a fruitful and productive reductive NFL career. I'd say and you mentioned some incredible men. There Larry Fitzgerald London Fletcher Frank Gore examples of professionalism. Analyst is about and this year Lorenzo. There will be a bunch of players who go undrafted. What would you say to the guys who go to training camp camp without being drafted who are long shots? What would you recommend to them willing to make the team into an NFL career? So there's two Beta stays because You know obviously I've had a lot of guys had mentioned some guys and from my own experience I would say One check your ego because you no longer the man Dan You have to humble yourself and and and the great ones that you see. Do it So you need to be comfortable because what your college or high school is not necessarily GonNa work at this level or awesome at a total different technique. That you want you to learn. That's going to be conducive to their system. Or whatever they sound guys be successful throughout their coaching career And then number number to take care of the things that you can control Don't walk in there with an entitled mindset of what you would maybe gotten away with in college as far as maybe being late not working out to your full potential Maybe missing some classes have been a little Lazy as far as your mannerisms and how you approach your tasks that your coaches ask ask transcend ask you to do whether it's Rehab or lifting weights Approach like a professional. Like you would want somebody to treat you like the people that are working for you show up all the time one hundred percent effort do extra ask questions figure out the why and then talk to vetter leaves that are in that locker role with and try to you. Know get an indication of what allowed them to play seven eight nine plus years and lead and Really become their shadow. And if you're able to do those three the things is definitely going to increase your chances of making that team because oftentimes is coaches coaches. Want the best players. Don't play on Sunday. They won't guys that they can trust left because obviously their job is at stake too and live and die with production player so if you can gain their trust they're going to give you an opportunity and then it's up to you at that point you take the skills and the skills that they have have helped you with they make the most of it. So what led you to retire at this point time because it certainly looks like you could still play Lorenzo. You had twenty four sacks the last four seasons they still count on you as a leader. I mean you're thirty six years old. You probably could've kept playing if you wanted. Why retire now I think it comes a point. Everybody's career we really sit down and do a self evaluation of where you're at As far as professional career they weren't you had as far as life outside of football and for me Family I hold in very high regard. I've been married for twelve years in January. We take we have four beautiful kids and and and because of the blesses football is giving me is giving me a lot of freedom or bell playing football financially relationships ships as far as other avenues. I WanNa do and All the reasons at this point to come back and play for selfish reasons to continue the field my passions advised vides far as being a football player. You know to feed my ego but as far as people recognize it as sociology with being NFL linebacker. And so the reason why I really stepping away. So it's the play a supportive role in my family Really be there with my kids and be able to do at a high level quality of life Because I house as you said I'm thirty six you start playing thirty seven thirty eight in the way I play through the Kennedy. You continue to put yourself at risk obviously additional head issues news Concussions C. T. and then also You know knees hips auto little things that people tend to take for granted you know because right now this this past season it's hard for me to wrestle with my sons. Go out play. Whom for this? You know mess around because I'm sore grumpy and I don't WanNa be like that so it really was a just taking a self evaluation of what I want to be. What I think is really important especially at this age is I have kids in the House at eleven nine and five and because I have an older daughter is in college I know it goes by extremely fast and so I want to be there and really enjoy these these These glory days of being there in of their childhood And I don't know if you've got to see my daughter perform national answer. But she did an awesome job so I just want to be around fast in those moments in their lives whether I literally hoops literally football or My daughter acting and being at her place and not be able to miss any of it. So that's kind of rhyme at and Al Ed in the stage of my career and top of that they you know enjoy The foods that me and my wife have sacrificed for the last fifteen years. And they'll they'll be able to travel a little bit they've got some time It really just grow in Have some increase memories away from the game. Good for you on all those things. I got a couple things that you said that just triggered immediate thoughts from you. Lorenzo number one. You said your daughter with the national anthem doing a great job. Did she say me after that. I miss something on Saturday when she started the national national anthem so my wife had kind of indication that this is the most likely to be our last year or so back in June. She team My youngest daughter Zoey would would would be able to sing the national anthem. And so she bay surprise me We play the jets. My last home game with her singing the national anthem and there was a beautiful thing my teammates. He makes two years and so it was just a a cool Atmosphere in a An experienced a half you know. Have One of your children sing the national anthem and do such a great job in Boston. I didn't even know that she's saying that is an unbelievable thing. I thought you meant in Houston on Saturday to the wildcard game. And I'm like I didn't see a five year old girl. Okay good okay. So we're good there and that's an unbelievable way to go out and your final regular season game now. Here's another question you mentioned. You have a daughter in college lick. So you're six years old. How old were you when you became a dead? I became a dad when I met my wife when I was twenty four and I my wife Dr from the previous relationship but I don't differentiate let somebody asks me. But that's that's how I have a daughter that's twenty four and I'm thirty six by the same thing armor. Yeah I married a woman who had a child with a man who lost his life unfortunately tragically at nine eleven. And I don't think of him as my steps and I think it was my son or your daughter. I'm sure exactly. That's that's how we operate that that's the way to go. So what you mentioned all those things a lot of family time. Is there anything that you want to do professionally speaking still in the next chapter of your life. Yeah there's some things I definitely have opportunity to. Do you know since I've been look up. I'll definitely kind of branched off into the broadcasting world Done a lot of BDO JUST TV or radio. And I really enjoy that obviously keeps you around the game engaged about Bill goes additional relationships and I continue to do something at least speak about something that I love. So we'll see what I do. Something Phoenix There's several other outlets out out there. That are have a chance to at least have anything with You know probably really start down here at immediate role during the Super Bowl So I'm looking forward to that as well then I have some other things think I would do with my foundation for their kids as well while vomit these transition processes well so Couple of things on the horizon and kind of have to take time handed out and for those who don't know you establish the Aces Foundation. Were your mission is to support you through emphasizing accountability taking on the community striving driving for educational excellence while.

They'll be interviewing the Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz on Wednesday the Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Adams too fancy on Thursday and the Patriots Offensive Coordinator. Josh mcdaniels so many thought would be in play in New York and Carolina before they went another direction on Friday. Keep in mind. The Brown's already have interviewed Eric. The Enemy Grumman Robert Sal and I think the browns would like to have a coach in place by Saturday though. Maybe it's at some point.

The next big thing in climate adaptation technology?
"We're looking at. How technology can help us adapt to climate change and reentering pieces from our series series? How we survive? Most of the San Francisco Bay area including a lot of Silicon Valley is right at sea level and in some cases slightly below. Most of that is barely protected by short dirt. Mounds called Pete Berms from the eighteen hundreds and scientists say in the future they are not going to cut it so sea level is projected to rise seven to ten feet by twenty one hundred. This is Leticia Grigny a senior scientists directing the resilient landscapes program at the nonprofit San Francisco go estuary institute we are in San Lorenzo California about thirty minutes south of Oakland at a place called the Oma wastewater treatment plant and we're standing right at the edge of the Bay so seven to ten feet were underwater right or at least a good part of us is molly. Molly might be seven feet. Thank you but but I'm definitely drowning so we'd have to replace these little berms with big engineer levies and we gotta choose if we're GONNA have them be smaller with beautiful slopes in front out of them with wetlands or big with steel. I'm here to visit a unique experiment. Researchers have actually built a smaller more beautiful version of a Levy B. It's called the horizontal Levy and it's the opposite of a big tall wall. It's basically a little two acre marsh with all kinds of different trees and in grasses on it and it's at the wastewater treatment plant because the plants need a lot of water. It doesn't smell the best but it's still nice like a little park with birds and planes flying overhead and you can hear a unique species of title marsh birds singing right now. All the title Marsh Song Sparrow found nowhere else in the world except here birds. Aside Marshes and wetlands are good at absorbing floodwaters naturally while concrete walls bounced the water back there are also expensive to maintain they might fall down in an earthquake and then those little dirt. Mounds just aren't tall enough. This levy is a different kind of approach. We have the idea of high tech. We really understand what that is to me. That's kind of very engineering engineering. It's similar to the steel and concrete sort of engineered levies that we see in the bay we also have landscape tech. We have these complex natural systems that are doing really important things for us and we need to take advantage of them and not think of that as something different than weird weird but this is just a new kind of tech and we need to use basically landscape tack to adopt climate change in addition to flood resistance the levy is also helping to clean leaned the wastewater surprisingly well in fact researchers say. It's especially good at filtering out the trace leftovers of medicine that people take Angela. PAREN- Tony He is with the University of California Berkeley. She's doing research on how well the plants on the horizontal Levy are able to filter the water. Naturally medicines pass through people's bodies ladies and end up in wastewater sometimes and It can be really hard to deal with those compounds when they end up in the environment but in our system everything seems to be the Transformed in some way and not for nothing. It's a crowd pleaser. Jason Warrener's general manager of the ORLA sanitary district he gives lots lots of tours of this levee project and he says it makes a strong case for a different approach to climate adaptation when people see infrastructure as part of their community. And maybe not something that looks analogous to park therein. They say yes. This is the type of infrastructure that we want to see. We don't WANNA see giant concrete rip grab levies. We want to see a natural system to that extent that we're providing a vision for people to see what see rise response might look like. It's been a great success. We need to improve. We need to make this less expensive and we need to make it do more. So the Levy looks good handle floodwater cleans wastewater the birds love it. The vision is working but it's expensive. You're talking about twenty five million dollars from Jerry Lewis the scientists with the story institute. We're showing the concept and set was now. We've got to engineer it so that it's billable and it's affordable and it's legal by legal means permits. Let's for this kind of project can be really hard to get the moment. This is
