"So what are the unintended or the unexpected consequences for mind reading technology? Guys think about this way from the various government. It's a dream come true. They can know who's for against them. Who's going to vote this way or that way? It's a disaster. It's a disaster for democracy. It's a disaster for, you know, just humanity, right? Imagine If we had no privacy, and at the same time is real. No, we really can't control our minds. We think about a lot of things every minute every second every day. So imagine if all those thoughts Were fed into a system that could both manipulate and control but also eliminate, eliminate eradicate. I mean, this is this is really bad. Okay, Okay. I got a question for you. Then correlation to that. And that is Can they inject ideas once they get it perfected? They already do. It's already perfected. You know, you may want to check out this great documentary film called Social Dilemma that interviews former Facebook engineers, Rangers Twitter guys. I mean, they're already doing this. Listen, remember what we talked about that you know the reporter who discovered this 1,200,000 pages of data. They take all that Then they put into it. You know, it's it's all computer right now. They know exactly how he's taking an exactly how to manipulate his thoughts on Facebook, By the way, not only all right, but wherever he is on the Web, mark, we're up against the final break here.

"World Radio with David and Alan Masters. Here's your host. Earlier this year, Mark Weinstein had a Ted talk that's impressive in and of itself, but the fact is that he talked about what is happening. With Facebook, acquiring a startup company that uses mind reading neural sensors to gather information directly from your brain. I think that's very matrix like Mark, and I'd love you to hear more about that. You know, Listen, everybody. This is really creepy, right? Especially because it's Facebook. So you know Facebook, already with the data they have enough can actually predict. Your moods, your votes, your emotions, your purchase decisions they can sell to marketers and advertisers exactly the angle to target U to get you to change your mind about an opinion or a thought or a vote. It was creepy, and now they're talking about these neural interface devices neural devices that they have bought companies that are developing neuro devices. That can recognize a small set of words and phrases. Thoughts inside your brain that they can translate immediately. You have a thought inside your brain and Facebook knows immediately what you are thinking now. Is that that John creepy does that sounds you know to futuristic begs the question, it begs. The question is Mark Zuckerberg. An android. I don't think he's human. I really don't. I'm serious. I think he's a strange cat. He doesn't see He seems like he's lost his humanity, and I wonder if he's been a subject of some kind of experiment. You know I can't speak to that. But what I can say is what prompted me to build me. We in the first place. Having built social networks before successfully was when Mark Zuckerberg did and every you about nine years ago, said Privacy is a social norm of the past. He said This in an interview. You right? And I was like, Are you kidding me? Man? Who are you that you get to decide for all of humanity? That privacy is a social norm in the past the prices over you don't get to make that decision, my friend I am coming in. I'm gonna build a company. We're going to stop this. That prompted me to build me. We Wow, He's referred to us as dumb efforts at various times, and he essentially treat you like cattle. That's all you are is cattle herd of sheep that he manages and controls people. Bs, right? I mean, you know, it was just this year in January, he said. Facebook is the bastion of free expression, and I'm like, Are you kidding me? You're manipulating everything that we think and do. We have no free expression on Facebook. You know, we had We were just we were discussing awards for lack of self awareness. So I would like Tonto nominate Mr Zuckerberg for lack of Self awareness Award for that particular statement. These people, businessmen They don't listen to themselves at all. No, but he has, you know, we had we give him credit for being a rather extraordinary businessman. But now we have to interrupt the Kool Aid. He's been feeding us because it's laced, it stated, and we've got to get also Facebook and we've got to go back there. Here's a beautiful thing. There's independent data that shows that on me. We which visit is about 19 minutes on Facebook was about 10 minutes. And why, guys? Why? Because you know, there was this old theory that was perpetrated by Google and Facebook and others that you know they could customize your new city to make it more interesting. But in fact Me we'd lose feet is more interesting. People spend longer time because it's actually authentically your family. Your friends and the pages to connect with. Nothing is interfering. So authentic communication is actually most interesting to us as human beings. You know, you've given us a great gift for Christmas. If you think about it, I want marvelous gift. And you know what? The part of giving a gift I'm an attorney. I have to forgive. I'm poisoned, but part of a gift is when it z2 part there's giving and accepting. So you've done the giving. It's just up to us to accept the gift and we'd be foolish not to Indeed. Absolutely adjoining, by the way, Patrick thank you for being our newest member at me. We and you know, bring your friends over. Have a great turnout. Guys. There's something else I wrote about this. Remember, I have our beds. The Wall Street Journal had not that in The New York Post, Uh, Memorial Day weekend. And I put it out because that on me, we nobody can pay. Huh? Everything into your news feed, and that's really critical. So you know, there is no concern about fake news or you know something getting perpetrated and brainwashing people because you can't have me also. Google's fight me we so you know, you can't Google me to say what did Mark wasting post on me? We have. There are no crawlers inside me with, you know, If you want to post something for the whole, merely community that you're sure you wanna be our member directory for the whole me, we community that's that's your choice. But Google telling your employers or you know your relationships or the schools you might want to attend. Etcetera. There's none of that. Really creepy. Be ever. You know everything you do on Facebook. You can just Google I like that use of the term them crawlers. I think that's appropriate. You know, I'm just reading a headline here, Mark, and it is that Facebook is funding brain experiments to create a device to read your mind. And this is big tech firms are trying to read people's thoughts and no one's ready for the consequences..

"Kelly today, Alan Masters missing an action doing something important, but we are very fortunate indeed to have with us in this segment. Mark Weinstein. He is the founder and CEO of me. We Mark. Welcome to the program. Hey, thank you so much. Always great to be with you guys. No more water to talk about important things, indeed. And you know, everybody. Everybody is talking about me. We these days Because me we is the only place where you're not going to be shut down and monitored and data mined and all the rest of you won't tell us a little bit more about me. We Oh, sure. Listen, everybody. Me we is what we call the new mainstream social network. It's social done, right? We just throw out the terrible violations. My Facebook Twitter. You know, the other current mainstream. So in other words, you're not sits there just for having an opinion, whether you're you know, thinking you're you're conservative or progressive or Your four against a medical treatment. We don't think that's any of our business. So we are for everybody. Also, there is no tracking. There are no advertisements. There's no targeting. So you know what those other sites You know, Like Facebook, For example, you're not the customer, The advertisers and the marketers. The customers. They use your data to target you relentlessly. They manipulate your thoughts. Your purchase decisions they have thousands of data analyst Psychologist working for them at me. We don't have any of that Bs. So your newsfeed is just who you're connected to who you choose to connect it to. There's no news manipulation. Nothing is getting in the way of your experience. So you mentioned something that is one of my favorite topics. And it is mind control, and I think there's no doubt that the people who are immersed in social media today are being influenced. Then I want to call it mind control. By all kinds of forces from within our own the people that are controlling these giant companies to people that have strange agendas to get us to vote a certain way. Everybody's got their They're sort of agenda isn't Facebook, the new wee Gee board? We invite the demons into your house. I'm speaking metaphorically, of course, but that's back. Kelly, your invite the man and you invite you Don't stone, invite your friends and you invite your life into that thing, and it takes you over and guide you. And you know, that's what maybe he doesn't do. They say that again market It's the creep over your shoulder. Listen in 2012 Way back when I was interviewed of Fox Fox News the day before Facebook went public. And I said Right then and there, I said, you know, they've got this privacy thing wrong. This is creepy. You know they're watching and listening and analyzing everything we say and do And then they're manipulating our thoughts and our purchase decisions. Now The reason is taking people a while to figure this out and really catch on is because when you can't see the creep over your shoulder like patches, said You're in your house there on your phone. Listen, if you have a conversation about anything, even when you're not on Facebook on your phone, but your phone's around, watch out because you're gonna get ads. You're going to get contact suggestions there listening and watching. Everything we say do in fact, so much so that one reporter at the Guardian said Facebook. I want to know how much data you have on me. No, they had 600,000 pages of data of one from my God. Yeah, And that's just a regular person. He was just a regular guy. He was just doing an article. He's curious and pretty information, actually got it 100,000 pages of data they have on each one of us. What you're doing is selling your soul for convenience. Alleged convenience You're saying Well, this is easy to use. I love Alexa. I couldn't communicate. Essentially, you're here. Just giving your you're selling your very being to these people At this point. We don't realize that thing. You know, we can't fault all of us The innocents. I thought we were using a social network to stay connected with our family and friends, you know, connect with like minded people with all the suddenly wake up, and now we know the You know the terrible infractions and it's going on for a decade. And now you know, as we're talking today, this idea and this is what I said. In my Ted talk earlier this year, I said Facebook recently announced it has acquired a startup designing brain computer interfaces. Why The Facebook can read our minds without us having to speak or type of work. So long, guys. Oh, my God. There's nothing that I don't see where that could go wrong. I wanted my immutable truth of life is whenever you have freedom. Chance for freedom. True freedom. You take it And what you're doing is why I admire you is you are giving us all a chance for true freedom because we like the convenience of being Eight and like with our friends, but at the same time, we don't need a basically signed onto indentured servitude, slavery. Yeah, In order to achieve that we're providing that option. So to me, or era, So there you go. Thank you. Thank you, And it's worse than that, because of the disruption of democracy. You know, in 2012, and we watch me win. 2016 were in a beta project for three years. We got it right. And of course, today, um, you know, in some places in the world right now we're number one hunt comes but number one in Hong Kong for over two months. In November. We were number one in the U. S A. And cover your number one. You know, we're training all the time number 1 December. You know it changes every day, but people have woken up because Facebook Is not serving us. We are actually the product they sell. Their customers are advertisers, marketers, politicians, government and, you know, we've gotten screwed. You know, I've never even considered this is what he wants. I just want to tell you I've never because I sense this with Facebook. I've never opened up a position on Facebook or Twitter because I felt they are manipulative and evil. I am personally going to open my first Web presence on your me. We Platform because I have no fear about what you're going to do with it. And why, and given how terribly suspicious like then I am an attorney for 40 years. That's a great compliment, And I think you should take it as a compliment. So, you know, freedom, freedom in communication and also heard that people you know here. I don't want to change all my friends by going from Facebook. Well, if they're your real friends, they'll follow you. Maybe it's a good time you find out who your real friends or not and shipped over to me. We and find out actually, who follows you. And just go and it's actually will be a lightning. Maybe those air fake friends for all you know. You know, it's interesting. You mention that because the so called network effect we all have evidence today of our friends abandoning leaving Facebook. They're over it. You know, Facebook. Is also not cool anymore. You know, it's not cool. It's not cool to be there. And so people are abandoning their legacy on Facebook. They've had it. They're done. Are, you know, thinking it this way. We have a relationship of Facebook that's based on irreconcilable differences at this point, they have screwed us over. They had violated the state cheated on us, You know, 100 times. And we're done and people are only there because they're waiting to see through their next partner is now a soon as they hear about me, Lee. They're coming over. It's like the beaten spouse abandoning their partner finally. It's very similar to that of the psychology. Yes, relationship we're out of there. We're just watching to see who's our next partner. Now, here's the beautiful thing. We have nearly 13 million members and nobody knows about us. So what happens when everybody knows about us? That's what we're up to next. Letting the whole world know we're here were translated into 20 languages. By the way, 50% of our traffic is already international. So we're here for the people and you're right. People and their friends are coming over groups are coming over. No, and it wouldn't be clear for our listeners. Me we is not anything goes. I am not an advocate of anything goes sites. I think they're wrong. I think they're actually pretty disgusting. So we asked, and we have strict rules that you don't be a hater. Don't incite violence. Don't break the law, don't bully and then just have your conversations. It's not up to us to decide what health remedies correct or what political position is correct. That's ridiculous that the other cos they're doing that. It's up to us to keep it for the good guys..

"Whatever they're called, broke off from and remember when they would put him in that, like electric chair, and they would open the gates to the dark crystal that would shine into their eyes and then their vital essence would drain out of them into a little vial. Do you remember that? Of course, right. And so their eyes would become all big and they would stare at the dark crystal and then drip drip drip a couple little drips of their vital essence that the life essence would drip into Little vial. And then the disgusting where the creatures called that word justice Scaccia. They look like vultures There were there were, they would drink the vital essence of the innocent little girl flings and then their wrinkles would kind of, you know, unwrinkled and they would get your boat talks for the whole body. But if you look at that movie if you go back and watch this movie, and I tell you audience if you've never seen the dark crystal Watch it, you can watch it with your whole family because it Z, a brilliantly made movie about really the battle between good and evil. But it's the eyes of Mark Zuk and board. Actually, it's the same eyes when they looked at the dark crystal when he when they were asking him questions, and he's looking at the camera. He was like looking at the dark crystal like, Oh, my God have been caught. The only thing I can say is, I don't recall But the jewelry he has no conscience. No, he has the guys the guys but Gillian Air. He's a trillionaire. Whatever he is, he should recall everything. The man is the chief executive officer on all on his shoulders. Yeah, Elias, He's ah! He's not Madison one. He's a mandarin. I mean, if you could see his fingernails, they're probably 10. Ft. Long. He's one of those people that is very carefully guarded and coughed. I gotta get back in the Bible. Hold on. Let me get back in the bottle. I'm joking. No, no, I'm serious. Okay, so we go. I mean, that's a great analogy on and I think you're right. But I do not believe that Mark Zuckerberg has a conscience is a matter fact I'm not sure he even has a soul. I think that maybe his soul was extracted through the dark crystal process. They exactly. They got the funeral in trip that surround him have consumed his vital essence. And that's why he just sits there. And there's really not much you can say to him or do to him. He's he's sort of impervious because there's nothing there's nothing that stirs deep down within his being. That makes him aware that he's doing something that that's violating the human race. Listen. I mean, that's what you say. Listen to this. This is some 10. I just happened to be looking right? What the heck? Random Just kind of walking through Why, Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble In his arrogance, The wicked man hunts down the week. Who are caught in the schemes he devises. Ooh, e mean to tell you. This is exactly what we're talking about. With Zucker Burg and the big tech companies. We've all fallen prey. Do these big tech companies. That's why my phone is then three days without a phone. I feel like I'm free. All right. It's funny, although I haven't fallen order. Don't worry about it. Yeah. The thing is that you know me. I refuse to participate in in social media and all that stuff. I killed my Twitter account, probably six months ago, which I never used anyway. But the point is I think the best thing we've got to do is we've got it. We've got to leave those cos we've got to leave them to their own decay. Get out of those companies. If you're in them go to me. We and go to parlor, which by the way, Tucker Carlson had the CEO parlor on last night, and by the way that's weak on Monday. We're gonna have the CEO of me. We mark who's been on the show before Mark Weinstein..

"Marketing glitz and launched a bus just about any new tech company could see a momentary burst of traffic. This was different. These abs aren't new, Just newly invoke their sudden surge is part of a larger phenomenon. A growing rejection of traditional conservative watering holes like Facebook and Fox News in favor of even more extreme echo Chambers. Casey Newton is a tech journalist in the creator of the Platformer newsletter. Casey. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me Some people say parlor, some say, parlay because it's French deprivation for speaking. Do you know for sure what this platform is called? As best as I can tell the creators call it parlor and I do find it very difficult that AH network for American conservatives would brand itself with a French language pronunciation. So I'm sticking with parlor like freedom fries Exactly. Tell me about its history and where it's at right this moment. So parlor was founded about two years ago by a couple of guys in Nevada after increasing concern that mainstream social networks like Facebook and Twitter We're taking too heavy a hand in moderating content. So if you remember after the 2016 election, Facebook and Twitter got a lot of grief about all of the misinformation and election interference that they had enabled on their platform, and they started to take really strong measures to get it off. But as a result of that many conservatives felt like they could no longer express their views. And so parlor stepped into that void and said, We promise if you join us, we will moderate as little content as humanly possible. Facebook has two or three billion users worldwide. What about parlor? Parlor. If I had to guess, has a monthly active user ship somewhere around a million or so a really small fraction of Ah, Twitter like user base, but it has been growing very quickly since the election. And the growth seems to come, if not entirely predominantly from the political, right. No, that's right. If you are toe join parlor, you're presented with a screen of suggested people to follow. And it's all conservative pundits and elected officials. You know, it's Ted Cruz and it's Sean Hannity. Among the most prominent investors in parlor is Dan Bongino, conservative pundit and Fox News contributor who consistently produced Facebook's daily top 10 most popular posts. Over the waning days of the campaign this summer, which is to say Big tech is treating him just fine. Why would someone like him want to invest in such a relatively tiny platform? You know, I would say it's two things. One is the winners on Facebook refused to acknowledge that they have won all of the big top 10 on Facebook that you mentioned are among the loudest proponents of the idea that they're being censored on Facebook, and that's because No matter how many people they may be reaching, there are cases where their post may be removed, or they'll face some other sort of discipline. But I think the bigger issue is that if you're an influence or on any platform, eventually you become nervous about the amount of control that that platform has over your life right. The rules can change it anytime. Facebook just aside one day that they don't want him around and could snap their fingers and he would have no recourse. All right. Number two in the APP store was Newsmax certainly a part of the great right wing media sphere and number three Woz, another Little known social media app called me. We What's the story of me? We me we was created by this entrepreneur named Mark Weinstein. And he's basically been in the social networking space for a really long time He created a very early social network prototype called Super Groups in 1998. And me, we is maybe a little bit more. Facebook like of parlor is a little bit more Twitter like, but like parlor. It's also promising to do very little content moderation, Weinstein wrote a post promising no ads. No targeting no political bias, no news, feed manipulation and no BS. Well, it's unclear if that's the rubric. How the hell he intends to make any money. But putting that aside for a moment he didn't Found it explicitly as safe haven for right wing extremism. But it has turned out that way. Yeah. What these folks have seen is just a market opportunity. If 10 years ago I pitched you on a social network. That wasn't doing that much content. Moderation that would have just been Facebook and Twitter. Right? There wouldn't have been much way to differentiate. But now that there is this, you know, healthy group of millions of folks that feel really aggrieved by what is becoming of Facebook and Twitter. They're looking for alternatives. And if you're me, we which has been floating around with no real juice for a while now, that could be really attractive. And they have major support from very prominent right wing demagogues like Sean Hannity. Here he is introducing parlor to his audience. Can we know? Move everybody from Twitter to parlor coming? Make the shift together, like, just say goodbye. Twitter, CIA at Jack. Nice try overall. How do you think Twitter and Facebook did perform this time around? Compared to 2016. When they were obviously asleep. It's a switch. They did really well. They spent 2020 fighting the last war and the war in 2016 was prevent foreign actors from getting onto the platform using fake accounts sowing division spreading misinformation. Because President Trump had given away his entire plan from the start. You sort of acknowledged he was not going to accept the losing result in the election. It enabled them to make policy preparations and say if any candidate happens to say that they won the election when it's been decided the other way, we're going to label that I think all that's been good. The change, though, is that you now have the most dangerous misinformation coming from the top elected officials in the country, not just trump. But also the Republican Senate, you know, declining to you to congratulate the president elect Theremin acknowledge that he's projected to be the winner. The platforms are just in this really tough place because they are built as homes for conversation, much of which is political. And when the entire political infrastructure of the right is now to the Ring itself to this idea of the election may have been stolen. It just becomes incredibly difficult for them to route. All of that out now, where I would hold them accountable is the post that whip up the most fear and outrage..

All of that out now where I would hold them accountable is the post that whip up the most fear and outrage. Get the most engagement on Facebook and Twitter. That's just a function of how the platforms work. So on that front, it does sort of feel like between 2016 and 2020. We didn't make all that much progress. So should we be happy that the craziest and dumbest And most extreme voices are self segregating and increasingly polluting mainstream social media. I used to think that if we could just move the worst actors on social networks to smaller spaces, we would be okay but then Q and on happened and Q and on is a conspiracy theory that bubbled up on a tiny message board that no one took seriously or thought mattered. And now it's you know, essentially a mainstream conspiracy movement. And so while I don't think parlor or me, we are going to overtake Facebook and Twitter. I do think that they bear watching. And if there are new conspiracy movements that arise there and gain some traction, then we all need to be paying attention. Because they're going to find a way to move to Facebook and Twitter eventually, and from Facebook and Twitter, they can pretty easily move into the real world and real world violence. You believe that this notion of voter fraud which has so enraged and fooled, Trump's supporters is going to be the basis off. And ongoing movement that is simply erected against the Legitimately established government. You point to an essay by Ezra Klein..

MeWe, the "anti" Facebook

"Many of us have been very upset with facebook lately. Due to their policies about hate, speech and others and many advertisers have started pulling their money in response. Well, what do we do if we don't want to go to facebook anymore? Where do we go? Well Mark Weinstein has a deal for you. He has the Anti facebook. A new social network called me. We and he'd love to tell you all about it mark. Thank you all right so. Listen. Everybody is fed up with facebook. And with the big social media giants right because they practice a business model called surveillance capitalism. So all. Their about is collecting as much data about us, and then targeting us and manipulating our thoughts and our purchase decisions, they employ thousands of data, scientists and psychologists this their game, and they serve US outrageous content because it, it causes higher engagement. It's all screwed up. So, we have a platform called me. We M E W. And, it solves all the problems. It has all the features people love about social media groups, great pages disappearing content great stories, even journals great, you know private news feeds for your close friends, and then for all your contacts, everything people of and none of the S.. There's no way for anybody to boost anything in your new seat. There's no way for an advertiser or marketer a politician to target you. We get rid of all. That is commonsense. Our members, our customers to serve not data to sell or target okay, but the biggest challenge you've got is you don't have a billion people there. It's going to take a long time for people to find friends on me. We whether you say. That's easy. The first thing that happened in our growth listen. We are now over eight million members without spending one penny to get people to come to our platform, no user acquisition costs. And this is because. People come together, so people come together to me. We their groups. They're groups of people whether they're you know interested in in bicycling or fitness or music or entertainment or Conservative or progressive politics. What we've seen is that people find out about me. And they moved together common interest, groups, constituents, families, and so now with over eight million people headed straight to ten million. If you come over just as an individual, and you match your address book, you're likely to find people that you know already. Okay mark of people love facebook when it came out to, but then as it grew. In came to hate speech and all the fighting and the vitriol that people now hate about facebook. So how'd you make sure that we does not become the next facebook? We can't because number one. Our business model is completely and utterly different. Their business model always involved getting data targeting just got better and better and better at it. Now I have the tech talk on this called the rise of surveillance capitalism. So first of all by definition and by design and by engineering, we are completely and utterly different, so there is no booster triumphant. There is no way to target people. Those aren't feel thin. We also have a privacy bill of rights, so there is no fee facial recognition. You own your content, you know you control whether in our directory or not, and we have a poison pill in our privacy policy also that says if we ever change. Change, our privacy policy. We not only have to tell you the changes, but at the same time we have to give you a link to your account and download all your files. If you don't like the changes now, facebook had that they would have been out of business six years

W. went along with some very great people one of whom is sitting right across right now it's been like over a decade since we've heard our voices on the air together that would be none other than KDWN news anchor Jon J. for John I gotta tell you man it's great to be back here with you you know you've been a great friend to be for a long time so I just want to say thank you for that I do owe you a I owe you a few adult beverages ideal suite but thank you for being here and it's great that you're gonna be doing the news for us every morning so you got it yes thank you Mister Schaper the floor is yours my seven live people here in the building with me as well well we you just mentioned it's we'll talk about him the Las Vegas security guard that once patrols neighborhood with semi automatic rifles arrested on federal charges in connection with possessing destructive devices FBI says he had bomb making materials planning to attack a synagogue in a gay bar twenty three old Connor climb also chatted online with white supremacists quoted Adolf Hitler and drew a sketch for attacks according to a criminal complaint filed against him he was arraigned last Friday on allegations that he had bomb making materials which the FBI did say they found in his home village crime is possession of an unregistered firearm he faces up to ten years in prison and a two hundred fifty thousand dollar fine according to the department of justice so John even doing news in this town for a long time have you ever heard of anything like this before were white supremacist plan something like a terrorist attack because I can't recall of the two people they ambushed the two metro two police officers yes and the pizza that is true that was a horrific tragedy that made national news but other than that story I cannot recall another one in the last decade that I've been here yeah I don't recall one either yeah well I got to this guy before it happened so you guys are making a connection to trump that clearly no I silently now I'm not even bringing up Donald Trump what I'm bringing up is that when Tucker Carlson for example who has zero credibility brings up white supremacy and saying that it's a hoax what John Shafer just read proves that it is not a hoax unfortunately it is alive and well I wish it was a hoax quite frankly I wish John didn't have to read that story we're gonna talk about it coming up in a couple minutes today's the first day of school here in the Clark County school district and the nation's fifth largest district dealing with one of its largest teacher shortages ever the Clark County school district has more than seven hundred vacant teaching jobs there's not been such a large number of openings during the first week of school since twenty fourteen some teachers say there is no way staff and students won't feel the strain of having fewer instructors one teacher said that sometimes she has to substitute for another class in situations like this at the expense of her break time district officials say teacher recruitment and retention are top priorities in their focus twenty twenty four plan I just also want to say thank god that the studios here are not located near school because I don't think I'm allowed within a hundred feet go going John is in the first is a sweet right because it's you know signally of course the end of summer but then it's also it means that your one more year closer to maybe graduating so it's kind of you know it's it's it's good or bad yeah is that as a student as a grown up though I think it's like I don't want the end of summer coming of the second week of August right that seems odd to me because when I was in school we didn't go back to after Labor Day actually what I watched don't tell mom the babysitter's dead a couple days ago and they gave me some nice memories of summer as well are seen allegations for the record if your kid is it is playing hooky and not going to school please seven tune in to listen to the Vegas steak houses are done or if your class doesn't have a teacher and I just put the radio exactly is education yes Allegiant airlines not expected of any problem footing the bill for the naming rights of the new Las Vegas stadium the deal believed to be between twenty and thirty million dollars a year for thirty years the first six months of twenty nineteen alleged shooting net income of one hundred twenty seven point seven million making it the most profitable airline in America by the way I just I just flew for the first time in like a year or two and I flew out to see a concert if anybody cares in another state I'm not gonna say the airline that I took but I will say they sucked I I I got a really good deal on the flight they charged me fifty dollars for my bag and it looked like a carry on bag Kilis was insane and what is the stuff about not being allowed to the base and razors and stuff I got in with it fine I'm not a terrorist I'm just saying and I have to say I was done I was taken aback when you came in the studio before the show and pointed out that a legion out of all the major airlines in the country is the most profitable as a shocker that is amazing yeah that is that is surprising coarsely based here and I hope this will bring them more national recognition raiders start playing here alien stock that is now of the festival being planned as a result of the Facebook joke that went viral Matt Roberts who lives in Bakersfield created the event paid several weeks ago calling for people to join him in storming area fifty one Kanye west who owns the little alien in Rachel Nevadas when planning nonstop to host up to thirty thousand people in her ten room motel don't know how that's going to happen September twentieth is when this is supposed to take place she says she's coordinating with the public safety people it's a top priority she's been contacted Lincoln County leaders in law enforcement the event page went viral millions of people indicated they would be willing to travel to the remote location I don't think they know where the remote location as we're not talking ten miles here John what would happen if all these people finally stormed in only found in there was alien beef jerky I call it half height I hope they bring it back out this stuff is good what can honestly be in there that that is one of the good and

one hundred ten degrees out there to be honest at the guys John do you really think this is gonna happen now it and a hundred people go it's gonna be gridlock because there are no roads rice we're not

what are you doing I'm just gonna go check out some aliens gonna storm stormed at area fifty one inch I mean it's just it's weird so you don't think it's gonna happen it's not gonna happen I think something will happen but I would be surprised if thirty thousand people showed up and that's right at the Rachel International Airport as that would be ports quality to Nelly I haven't even had become yeah which is the other issue yeah that was a joke yeah I mean I guess you could land your your little propeller plane in the desert somewhere right it be illegal but I can't and landed on the

actually storm that store right rather than area fifty one because the foods I get she gets a matter that the food is actually really good I think you're right I think you could end up being a Vegas destination they write and they'll end up here and they'll be some type of festivities going on and then it'll kinda like Peter out and nothing will happen with respect to anybody going up there so you're saying nobody in the studios ever been probed by an alien or or kidnapped or any of that sort I did say that I can speak for myself inside I don't think so well John is wearing a green shirt so

all I heard alien ant for yes that's when I got there are very good band back from the nineties now they're not actually Brian might not aligned to think this could have a fire festival feel to it right we could and end up with a bunch of tents out there because of the meager accommodations that John just pointed out so Chris funny bring it up mark Weinstein from the video our first of document actually coming on our show on August twenty yes it's going to be one hundred ten degrees out there to be honest at the guys John do you really think this is gonna happen now it and a hundred people go it's gonna be gridlock because there are no roads rice we're not talking interstate fifteen there's not there's not two six lane freeway is that you would be taking up there you'd think with a name like the extraterrestrial highway will be wide enough for you a photo land are but it's not are people going to be flying in for this like people that don't live here do you think that's I mean it's incredible Hey honey I'm I'm going away for a couple days really what are you doing I'm just gonna go check out some aliens gonna storm stormed at area fifty one inch I mean it's just it's weird so you don't think it's gonna happen it's not gonna happen I think something will happen but I would be surprised if thirty thousand people showed up and that's right at the Rachel International Airport as that would be ports quality to Nelly I haven't even had become yeah which is the other issue yeah that was a joke yeah I mean I guess you could land your your little propeller plane in the desert somewhere right it be illegal but I can't and landed on the road but he cut legal you could you could try and land in the Nevada test site by the way there's a runway there have you been to that place I think it's it's it's on the way I want to say to California near prim I think it's like alien beef jerky it's really good actually they have a store dedicated teacher key with driver moderate yeah it's awesome it's awesome it's really good I would actually storm that store right rather than area fifty one because the foods I get she gets a matter that the food is actually really good I think you're right I think you could end up being a Vegas destination they write and they'll end up here and they'll be some type of festivities going on and then it'll kinda like Peter out and nothing will happen with respect to anybody going up there so you're saying nobody in the studios ever been probed by an alien or or kidnapped or any of that sort I did say that I can speak for myself inside I don't think so well John is wearing a green shirt so easily look a little alien acid yeah absolutely well Mister shapers that what you got for us today my god for you college football season and I

"And you can listen to us in the car on bluetooth and have us anytime you want or just ask Alexa or Google to listen to our world travel on our enough of that enough. I've had to listen to the show. Here we go. All right. So coming up in just a few minutes, everyone show friend Robert Niles check, San he's the editor of fem- park insider, and we'll get into things to be looking for at theme parks this spring and summer with him really will rejoin the show later in the hour when he tries to find out why a train trip across America is the fastest way to slow down. He's getting ready for that. But I guess he is we'll see. So it sounds interesting Rudy. Also, let us know that he's going to share some deals of the week this hour, and Robert and I will reconnect with Michael Baker to discuss some business air travel matters. All right. So clearly a lot to do a lot to do Mary. But right now as we get back to. To some travel news. We'll start that off for our to here where do you wanna begin? So this is sort of a list of some hotels that were recognized through an app called spoken. It's S P O K, I N we have no ties to this company or this business. I happen to have the app personally on my phone because we do travel with a teenager who has food allergies. So if you're in the food allergy community, Celia any food restrictions. This is a good app because basically users rank properties around the world, so hotels and restaurants around the world that has strong food allergy protocols in place in where they've had good experiences and a shoutout to great wolf lodge because the great wolf lodge, Wisconsin dells, the one in the Pocono mountains in Pennsylvania and the one in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, those three all made the top fifty. There were some a lot of properties lot Ritz Ritz-Carlton sprint here, Walt Disney resort properties. Of course. Number one out of the fifty around the world, they had the highest number of positive consumer reviews are several four seasons resorts in here. The Biltmore was in. Here. A so help each house in Miami. And quite a few properties in Hawaii, including three that we've stayed at. So well, listen, very important when you're traveling to know that what's that app? Again. That is spoken S P O K, I N. All right. So there we already started that got to go. You couldn't be more. Opposite of what you just sent Mary. What this? But I have to ask you are you a Donny and Marie Osmond fan. No. All right. They were on TV remember them when they remember. My mother got older, but they've been performing out in Las Vegas the Flamingo for years since I think two thousand eight or something like that. But if you haven't heard folks, Donny and Marie are retiring. So if you're a fan you want to get tickets to that because they're going to end in November of this year. So do that. And then Mary I'm going to hand you something right now. I realized the folks around the country can't see this. But I I'll say this first and foremost, you know, if you're a regular listener, then you know, that Mary, and I have to nearly grown teenage boys. I've always felt blessed to have two boys. So I've never had the experience frankly of raising girls, but if you have girls, maybe you have grandkids or nieces, or whatever it may be and they're Barbie fans in honor of Barbie sixtieth anniversary Hilton's, Mexico City Santa Fe property. They've partnered with Mattel to transform one of the hotels is pretty interesting. They're going to transform but actually have it's already available a one of the hotels guest rooms into the ultimate Barbie glancing experience for families and friends, you're looking at this what you handed me. I guess I'm looking at photos here looks like a deck poolside deck here. Everything's decked out in pink pink. Kushner, totally take drapery the best part of this. Go living the dream camper. Yeah. And that's so yeah, I'm looking at the dream camper. It looks like is that in a guest room? It's a home run. It looks like basically the from check in to check out the guest experience is Barbie. So if you are a Barbie fan. My name's have pink carpets. Amenities. You're limited. Mexico City Santa Fe. So check that out. All right. So this just came out. Triple A is projecting that nearly a hundred million Americans. We'll take a family vacation at some point in twenty thousand nine the figure is slightly higher than last year. But it still only represents about four in ten US adults. So what's going on with the rest of everyone time for a vacation? The AAA travel survey says that many families are planning spring and summer road trips more than half about fifty three percent. Do you plan to take a road trip in two thousand nineteen and triple A is also reporting that as of right now based on the trends gas prices are expected to be cheaper than they were a year ago in the summer. So that's good news. And this is interesting because we did a segment on road trips just last weekend. Right. Didn't we do a segment on southern road trips? Kristen. Travelers in the south. According to the AAA survey are more likely to be making plans for a family road trip this year. I thought that was interesting sixty two percent of those surveyed compared to travelers in the northeast only thirty five percent. So we're not road tripping up here. We're not why we had Kristen from southern living magazine. Also, folks again, as we said early archive better websites that go check that out so upgrade. Now, I'm not sure how much this is going to impact their business. But I something you should probably be aware of Carlson Wagonlit travel. They've been around since like eighteen seventy two. They've officially changed their name to Jess CW tape. So if you're looking for Carlson volubly travel, they some people call it Wagonlit, actually, blogging Lee is CW tape. And then another company that's out there. Paris base Acor hotels. Will they've changed their name back to just so it's no longer Carlson Wagonlit travel. We've got CW tea and Acor hotels is just Acor. Don't really know if that makes a difference. But while they go, and then there's a couple of the things that I've got here real quick last hour. We spoke with Mark Weinstein with Hilton a Hilton is just launched a new brand called Cigna. This is going to be an upscale meeting focused brand is their seventeenth brand. That's out there. So more and more of those properties are coming. I've got some pilot. I can't even keep up with and stuff. Windham has just announced they've gotten plans for new prototypes of many of their mid scale. And upscale Konami brands. They've been very successful at super eight. The company is working to really try to improve their days inn brand they have like twenty brands out there, including LA Ramada and more. And then the last thing I'll just say Holiday Inn, intercontinental hotel owns that group. They've announced that they are almost at or they soon we'll be over one point one million rooms fifty six thousand rooms added last year, and they have actually Marriott was in the news this week. They're adding they have a three year plan three or growth plans, seventeen hundred new hotel properties. It's close to three hundred thousand new rooms so all of these with these rivers. That is people are still staying in hotels. This is all good. Folks, right now, I could see Robert Niles is holding on the show hotline. So before engineer Bobby shuts off our mics as we pause for some.

Legendary hall of fame coaches, the amazing story of leadership development Morphing into legendary status as our subject. This is the first time anyone is still into this story. We're fortunate to have that sports writer with us. Now is Ernie Pella. Dino tells us about the greatest tandem of. Distant coaches in the history of sport. Welcome ernie. Thanks for joining us today. Thank you, Jim. This is a real privilege to be to be the cool kids table. Well, we're honored to have you tell us it. Just sounds like a tremendous amount of fun to do this book where you get the idea and tell us about how you put it together. I I tell everybody the idea is a product the failure. It came out of a failed proposal. I had done. I had done a magazine article for maple street press that's kind of like a street and Smith's yearbook type thing for for that it's focused on the giants in this case. And I'd done a piece on famous defensive lieutenants of the giants starting from Tom Landry and going through Bellichik the being Perry fuel was was coming in as the new defensive coordinator in two thousand and ten so which kind of based around that whole thing after I'd written this. I I look at my notes, and I said. I wonder if there's a book here, I'd never written a book in my life. Thirty three years the West Chester journal news, I was a beat writer, but but never written long form or anything like that. I said I wonder if there's a book here. So I wrote up a proposal, and my friend at the daily news Ralph back Yano who had written you lie. Manning the making of a quarterback introduced me to his editor sky wars, the great Mark Weinstein. And he said he said send it to Mark. He's he's a good guy. He'll give you a fair read Onny go I did and a month later, Mark got back to me and said, you know, you've got to books here. What is never ever been a sell because it deals with a lot of the giants losing years. Nobody wants to read that. But there's this whole Lombardi thing going on with the Broadway play in the and and the movies, and, you know, the the SPN specials, and what have you he says if you can if you can do something. Something about their internship with the giants assistantship with the giants. The two of them Lombardi and Landry you might have a viable proposal here. So I took another month, and I did some research on Lombardi. Of course, having been around the giants all my life. I was born in Westchester grew up a fan and New York teams always knew Lombardi and Landry coached on the same on on the same staff together. But I didn't know much before didn't know much past that, shall I did some research put another proposal together and sky wars publishing bought it. And I started I started writing the book. So that's really that's really how it came about. I guess there's a life lesson in there that just because you know, you failed. One thing doesn't mean it can't be altered to become to become successful in something else. And let me just mentioned the book is Lombardia Landry. How to approach football's greatest coaches launched their legends and change the game forever earnings, but a sports writer for nearly fifty years thirty three of them with the journal news in Westchester, New York, and he's been covering the giants. You told me before we. Get on for twenty three years. Currently writes, Ernie palladino giants beat for scout dot com part of Fox Sports blog network that he's a graduate of Fordham university, which was Vince Lombardi's. Alma mater, as well and fact play down the seven what is it the seven granite? Yes. Seven blocks of granite, setting blocks seven. I know my daughter Swinney was the worst of them too. Yeah. I read that I read that in your book. My daughter. My daughter swam for Fairfield right outside the swimming pool there, they have a statue of Bardi. So. Which is kinda cool. That's the Lombardi center. Yes. The pool is in the Lombardy center. It's an athletic center. They built just after I got there. They they started construction my junior year, and that's where they have their pool of workout rooms and squash courts, and what have you and now Fordham's been rebuilding another football team for years. Let me digress before we get into Lombardia Landry in the materials that publisher sent me along with your book. They said to be sure to ask you, how did you happen to get into a fight with Lawrence Taylor and lived to tell the story. Jen is at work. Okay. That's by publicist Jen door. She's a lovely lady and working real hard. But yeah, it's it's not something. I'm particularly proud of it happened. And and and I take it as such in nineteen ninety five or we're talking what seventeen years now. Yes. Almost seventeen years ago. Taylor had been out of football for a couple of years and Dan Reeves had brought him back in October. The giants were all in three heading into the New Orleans game. And he thought a talk by by large which spurred the team or whatever. And so, of course, everybody here's the large is coming. He's high interest in everything so bad one hundred media people show up at practice, and basically. Basically bullets. He blew us off after practice. He says I got nothing to say to you guys. And I wandered off. I was I was all angry because it was about five o'clock, and I had a six o'clock deadline, and I could see that creeping up. I hadn't written the word because obviously Taylor is going to be the story. So I went after him. Now, I'm five foot five foot five at the time. I was about one hundred seventy pounds, but I'm a hot blooded Italian with a temper, and what have you, and we got into drawing and. You know about thirty yards away from each other. And I'm yelling at him. And he's yelling at me. And Finally, I waved them off with an exploitive. We don't say on the radio, and what have you and I turn and start to walk back to the pressroom event. All of a sudden I hear Taylor screaming Carson his head off. And I turn around and he's in his linebacker stance. Thirty yards away from me. So I stop and I turn I'm not gonna run from. I turned any walks over to me. And I stick my finger in my face. I say you're wrong, you're wrong. And he grabs me by the throat and says getaway from the U dilly silly bitch. Now, I understand I understand silly. And I understand bitch. But but Billy I I'm still trying to figure that out. Well, I by the by, you know, I we get separated and like to say, it's a Mike Freeman of the times and Russell's Berg of channel eleven the poll meal. Lawrence taylor. You know, they grabbed me and dragged me off. And I'm cursing like crazy. Meanwhile, every major camera is there ESPN is there CNN. Is there the local networks, so they got microphones all over the place. So they're picking all this up. And if you see the tape it's it's on tape. If you see the tape all year for me. And Vinnie detrani is standing in front of large-scale saying calm down Lawrence, calm down and Lawrence's go. That's not necessary. Way up. You got your store at least I got my I got my two cents in any I wound up in three books because of it. It's amazing. We'll be back. Second segment.

"And then was like. Okay. We're gonna make movie with this. And the first you know, that I caught is so different from what? Yeah. I forgot what I. No, I think a lot of followers wanna know it. Fuck jarring media feel any sort of responsibility. Some I don't know about like feeling responsibility per se, but I also think that some of the criticism online has been somewhat Mr. active from interviews that I had done with former employees there, and with you know, people that were watching the whole thing happened, whether it was from within fire other companies, you know, they were just as in the dark as anyone else. They were you know, on the ground with them, even the people working at fire in production, still organic. Yeah. You only people that knew Billy grant. I really. Yeah. I mean, I not going to say like who knew or definitely sue Bill. Yeah. And you think everyone else really wasn't the dark. I think the Billy lied about a lot of things even to he would tell his employees that he had paid for something. And then sun fake wire transfers right Photoshop himself and this happened over and over so, but then just to go back to the factory. Like much like Mark Weinstein in the film. Sad hit seventy percent of his being dangled over his head like a carrot. Jerry was in the same position. I think they're paid me like thirty grand, and they were owed another hundred shirts. And and again, like, I'm I I don't know what who knew what when but it does seem to suggest that they were going to keep working that they would expect that money was going to be paid at some point. Right. So it's a tough position to be. Yeah. Especially not knowing whether or not a really was gonna fail like they must have known. It was something was off. But to the extent of it Billy really kept everyone of the Dr feeling really was good at solving problems. Like he would turn up like a couple million out of nowhere. If they hadn't gotten that final loan. I think it's disgust in the fingers. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's both of them. If they haven't gotten that lonely. They they would have had your shot it down, and he somehow managed to go out and sell these credit card receivables and turn it into a cashless festival like. News by literally can't believe that. Because I think about I think Coachella like just did it in like in the past like that takes years. I did. And he's free connection. Even do that. Right to put it on the rest of the whole thing. Like, I just think about the level of planning that goes into me doing Coachella festival goer. Right. And I think like, you know, like I have down, Pat, right? I have an artist parking pass ayvars fast. I know going in this entrance. Every time. This is my driver. And I and I know I'm getting my drinks here my food here, and like it's literally all planned out. I've been doing it for eight years. I couldn't imagine showing up to Estelle that with this little planning, and it's just it's ugly shocking. So a lot of people are also asking about gyros prosecution which was for or for lack there of he wasn't prosecuted now. So I don't know if everyone knows this, but Billy wasn't actually prosecuted for the festival he was prosecuted for the NYC for that. And then. He was also prosecuted for creating fake documents for two in to induce investors into giving them was the main thing. So he wasn't even really Nanteuil crimes. And it wasn't even like lying.
