"Real quick Dan. He's on his rookie. Deal Still Russell Wilson and Tom Brady suck up a lot of the salary cap. Lamar is still on his rookie deal. Meaning they're more resources going to other places on that team Dan last year. Here's a challenge for the Mar. Last year he'd lead. Go ahead molly. I'm sorry no you have the last word that's all you. Here's the challenge. For the last year he led the NFL in touchdown passes and led the NFL in yards per rush and won MVP like. Can you do that again? That's the that is incredibly difficult to try and repeat in and I'll make the point again. One of the great benefits scheme wise was those three tight ends and they traded Hayden I. I know he wasn't an incredible impactful player per first round pick but I do want to see how they replace that that would that is one of those pieces that made that often so impossible to stop last year. But it's GonNa be really hard for the Marta duplicate that season again. Dan Appreciate you listening to time cues. You'll be back with us in just a bit. I WANNA add Russell. Wilson has never had a career. Mvp evil. That's hard to believe. And also I was Surprised Kyle. Murray was so high same odds I know. He got D hop as Tom. Brady guys only four players have ever won back-to-back. Mvp's consecutive seasons in NFL history. Farve pay in Montana and Jim Brown. We will leave it there though. We're apart these days sharing GEICO. We'd like to say thanks. Thanks for sharing. Your savage dance moves. Thanks for sharing. Your Diy. Haircut fails thanks for sharing your inner lip sync star. Now it's our turn to share with the GEICO. Give back the fifteen percent credit car and motorcycle policies for current and new customers. Because we're committed for the long haul the fifteen percent credit last full policy term visit GEICO DOT com slash give back for more info and eligibility. Ufc Two forty nine. Put on a show Saturday night with just engaging knocking Tony Ferguson. In the fifth round for interim UFC lightweight title after receiving the belt and Dana. White Gay. Throw the belt on the ground. Saying I'll wait for the real one. Meanwhile conor McGregor would like to get in the ring with E. tweeting this. The fans make the sport watching the other night. I was against going in without them. But it'll be my expletive pleasure to display the power. I possess with zero background noise for them. It's me just in next. It's a beep. Is the biggest bottle fighter in the game guarantee. Dana did confirm data. We'll fight Habib to unite the belts. Stephen Egg who do you think? Jt should fight next. I would love it. I mean I you know this is more about what I love as opposed to should I would love to see versus Conor McGregor Let let's keep in mind that he he fights Tony Ferguson Saturday night which was a great fight by the way a great main event and you watched him connect on seventy two point. Six percent of strikes do has some boxing skills. As far as I was concerned. Max I was incredibly impressed by did get caught with an uppercut in the second round that dropped them an obviously it was the ended around so he was able to survive that but He picked Tony Ferguson. Apart absolutely he was incredibly patient. He didn't rush in the knockout. All wild and careless like he did in the past when he had lost back to back fights are early on in his career and the UFC. But this kid is special. He's got knocked out power in both hands. And I'm one of those guys just so you know again. I'm of the mindset that in America the UFC as popular as the sport has become and as much of a great job as Dana. White has done in promoting the sport. One of the things that I've said to numerous you fighters that I've spoken to. Is that folks. In the United States of America. In particular love boxing they love to see the knockout with meg of it would be a lot of grappling because he's an elite wrestler with Conor McGregor Versus Gay e. You would see blows being thrown all over the place and I'm not GonNa lie to you and I watch these guys Ferguson. And fight Saturday night and there was so much striking. I was surprised. There wasn't a little bit more. Resting what have you then? I remember the corona virus pandemic is coming on in my mind. I really have no proof of this but in my mind my attitude is that guys were a bit reluctant to grapple unless necessary against Conor McGregor engaged. You would see two guys just swing and blows and trying to strike out. Strike one another or catch one another. I think it would be incredibly exciting. Far More exciting new Mega MEDOFF. And that is the fight that I would wanna see even though obviously mega medoff is the champion. I want to see the title fight. I want to see the fight between the two best guys in the division of my hat's off to gauge for saying forget this belt interim bell. I want the championship belt. That's with Nurmagambetov MEDOFF has that's the fight. I WANNA see stylistically right. It'll be more bombs away. Obviously with connor who can punch by Geeky got caught with that uppercut because he threw the uppercut from too far away. That's a mistake in even seasoned boxers. Make but it's a. It's a not not a mistake. A really good boxer is supposed to make one of the cardinal sins of boxing throwing the uppercut from too far away you get caught and he got caught but that said you know in the UFC. You're you're a jack of all trades. You have to be a Jack of all trades master of one. You GotTa have that one foundational treaty really expert and then the others. You have to be proficient and you can't be clarity weaknesses. Right Gay Geeky though. His background is wrestling. Which by the way he doesn't use enough but should put him in good stead against their market. If the fight goes to the ground. Kate cheap has really developed a striking game with his hands for a guy with a wrestling background by that. I just don't mean packed kind of nature of this offense of Arsenal which was an everyone talks. About how calm was he wasn't brushing? It actually thought rushing in this fight could have been good for him because sometimes it awkward guy when when there's too much pressure on them. Awkward stuff doesn't matter as much. Nevertheless he fought the right game plan being more careful than he normally is and more compact with punches but more than that even a kept his head off line for the most part he was able to move his head. And what you see in mma when guys were good. Strikers oftentimes is their heads stays in the middle so they're susceptible to what's coming back so stylistically I agree with you about McGregor. That's fantastic bombs away fight but I wanna see the Champ Ramada versus his number one contender which is clearly gateway at this moment who would also probably pose the biggest threat to know. Magomedov MEDOFF was undefeated. Well well here's where here's where I think you're wrong. This is what I think. You're missing match with all due respect. You're talking about you. Want to see the title remember. You don't have fans in attendance right now. You've got a lot of fans who are at home and devoid of raw traditional sports or regular sports activity obviously due to the corona virus pandemic. You want to be excited. You want to be entertained. It's not just about okay. Let's get the belt. Let's see who gets the belt? No Mega MEDOFF was stuck in Russia for this particular flight. Which is why I ended up coming in the against Ferguson. Instead of Mega medoff okay. The fact that the matters nobody really missed it. Yeah the belt was there. What the gate you do. He threw it aside. He said I'll wait for the real one. What does he want? He wants the title shot against the Mega Metal. We totally understand that we get it. We totally get it. But the reality is is that particularly in this dance on the neath. Entertainment has been elevated and Conor McGregor and gates. Even don't conor McGregor doesn't deserve it as much as the mega mega champion. He beat Conor McGregor. Us Of course from that perspective. He's the reigning champion and we understand. Why Dana White has declared that is going to be these next fight but in terms of entertainment there is no question especially faced off the evidence that was provided to Saturday night. There is no question that conor McGregor versus just engaged would be more entertaining. Fight because the mega metal even though he could ankle stand straight up and try to throw.

"He stole from his family. The web of deceit was so complex that a significant portion of those affected was shocked to learn that they were defacto clients of medoff's as many as thirty seven thousand people felt the devastating fallout of made offs demise. It was truly the biggest financial scandal in weld history. His modus operandi was a fairly standard ponzi scheme named Conman Charles Ponzi upon Z.. Scheme is a redistribution distribution of wealth hiding behind a fake investment scheme it takes money from new investors and hands it to old ones meaning that the only way to pay the older investors is to find more and more people to buy into the fraudulent system without a steady stream of new blood. The entire entire operation goes up in flames. It is a system always on the verge of disaster and it is completely illegal <music> but he didn't just use this Ponzi.

That's correct. I employment. Thanks. He thinks a lot. I implemented a lot of things and you'll run it at twenty five million of being power. What Masterman helped implement was medoff's novel idea of using these large blue machines called electron accelerators to break. Apart nature's chokehold on the valuable sugars inside plant life for biomass machines, like these are typically used to strengthen materials such as wiring cable medoff's invention was to use the accelerator the opposite way to break biomass apart. Maybe you can tell us how the electron accelerator works. It's pretty simple. It's basically, accelerated electricity. And so what happens is is that they get exceleron downward downward where the biomass is. Yup. And they ran into the biomass and rip it apart doesn't sound that extraorde. Inari when you hear it except no one else in talk about. I think I think fantastic stuff as simple and hindsight. And none of the big scientists who were working round the clock to figure out how to get the sugars were all messing with things like sulfuric acid and steam explosion and crazy stuff like that. Which is very expensive. All that. Stuff's expensive electron being inexpensive. His inventive use of the accelerators. Caught the attention of investors who saw a potential gold mine, and the technology they gave companies hundreds of millions of dollars allowing him to scale up and build this factory in Moses Lake Washington. So he could turn his invention into reality. It's scheduled to be fully operational this spring. Here agricultural residue like these corn cobs is trucked in from nearby farms. Ground up blasted by the electron accelerator, and then combined with a proprietary enzyme mix. This process medoff's remarkable invention releases plant sugars that he's now using to make products. He claims will solve some of the world's most intractable problems affecting not just the environment. But also, our health one of the plant sugars is called silos and medoff says it could reduce obesity and diabetes since it is consumable and low in calories. Xylitol says Paul would sugar, and it has an unusual property that your oral bacteria cannot use it. So it won't decay. Your teeth sugar the dozen decay or two yes Hallelujah. It's healthier Shogo. It doesn't do the same thing. To you. So you can drink all the coke it onto drink diet coke anymore. Would taste the same. Course. It tastes a case like real sugar. So I tried it myself trust. But verify did that I wouldn't die died is just sweet. I mean is very sweet, yes. Yes. Very sweet a little crowded in here. Craig with the investor funds. Medoff also opened a forty five million dollar testing facility in Wakefield, Massachusetts, a far cry from the garage, and he hired more than seventy scientists and engineers who have come up with a sugar based product aimed at another impervious problem, some call it a plague the accumulation of plastic debris. You have said the plastic should be outlawed. Yes. The plastics that are being you should be because all they're doing accumulating and this enormous amount of ocean that's being despoiled. And if you take a plastic bag, Yup. Or a plastic bottle of diet? And throw it away. It could be there for five hundred years moa, most plastics are made from petroleum medoff makes plastic from plants. It seemed to us that his product was hard to distinguish from regular plastic except in one key way, put them chemical engineer, David Jabotinsky says that Xilai coz bioplastic invention can be programmed to disintegrate over specific timespans ranging from years to as quickly as eleven weeks, you can just take this, and he can find this is very degraded. Oh, and. So eleven weeks. It's it's already on its way to disintegrating that is correct. Perhaps medoff's. Most consequential discovery is how to extract the plant sugars and convert them into environmentally friendly bio fuels.

You at least know that you can deserve love being just you. If you man a single experience with that in your life, how do you know that? How do you not think you might have to be something to be loved? I think it's an experience everyone should have is that being just them is enough to warrant unconditional love, but you could get that from your mom opposite sex. Same. Interacting with the opposite sex. You know, you could fall apart. A believe. That's why I think I, I think the I think part of the reason that I've been able to get girlfriends most of my life is that my mom was in love with me like the coolest lady. I knew thought I was the ship. So I kinda thought, why wasn't any lady think I'm the shit cause coolest woman. I've ever met things on the ship, so it has to be in the recipe.
