"I don't know how to say it any better. It just, have you known any other, any other mobile company, any other mobile device, any other technology company that just keeps on delivering like that in the sense of here's more value, here's a new partner, here's more value, here's a new partner, here's more value. That I just have not seen. And that, to me, is what I think starts to lay the path and the groundwork for how other device makers could kind of go in this direction in the future. All right. So last up here is just the Helium Mobile Network. This, again, gives you the benefit of earning Sol tokens on the Helium as part and as transferred over to the Solana blockchain. They also whitelisted you as a Saga holder and you would end up getting a fixed rate for the life of that Saga ownership. So that, again, is another value that this represents. Now, back to the point of Apple, you know, because you think about other, eventually device makers might go in this direction or they could go the other direction, which is to take, take, take from you. Try to sell you the next new device. Try to, you know, jump in and continue to have you upgrade your phones and things of that nature. Apple was fined $27 million for slowing down iPhones without telling users. This to me was a drop in the bucket. What a great deal for them. They only got charged $27 million but sold you billions and billions and billions of dollars worth of new phones because you thought your iPhone just wasn't performing when in reality it was Apple under the hood slowing it down, you know, to keep it efficient on the ecosystem. Apple is getting ready to go out with their iPhone 15 and most likely we'll probably see all of our iPhone 12s, 13s, and 14s. Who knows what will happen to those in terms of performance. But this is the kind of problem you have with closed gardens. It's a problem you have with a non-open source opportunity here. And when you look at kind of the vision of where this is going, I want to play a clip here because this is a good one to kind of end this on. Listen in. I went into YouTube on my phone and I logged into an account that does not have YouTube Premium. The cost for one month of YouTube Premium when you sign up on your iPhone, $19 a month. If you sign up from your computer from a browser, the cost per month is $14. That means if you sign up to YouTube Premium from your phone, you are paying $5 extra a month just so YouTube, just so Google can cover the fees that iOS, that Apple adds on top of it. So if you're signed up via your phone, stop it. Are you getting this yet, people? Are you getting the picture where this is all going? Eventually, they want to control, and I say they, the walled gardens, the non-open source device makers, the people that are essentially doing the things, the antics that they've been doing to us for a long time. I'm sitting here in an Apple ecosystem because they've made it so difficult to detach away from it. For the first time now, I'm carrying a Samsung device instead of an Apple ecosystem device. And it's not because I don't like the Apple ecosystem. I do like it. I just don't like the vision of what they're trying to do. And when you think about their strategy going forward, this one scares me a little bit. Apple, of course, now has secured the right to the book on Sam Bagman Free. You can guarantee that we're going to have a negative documentary coming to Apple Plus about SBF. Granted, it should be a negative documentary, but let's hope that they understand that they play. There's a lot of good guys out here, and this truly was one of the bad guys. Let's see how it plays out. Just take my word for it. We will see crypto thrown under the bus in a big way because of why I think the bigger picture here is Apple can't make money off it. It's going to become more and more difficult for Apple to make money off it. In many cases, if you saw what you can do right there with YouTube TV, they and many makers of apps have started to go off this reservation, including game companies like Epic, et cetera. We talk about these all the time. And it really is the future. I think this is all changing, guys, and we are in the beginning of it. So hopefully you get a chance to take this, flip it out to Marques, and say, hey, maybe we should really take a look at the bigger picture here on where Web3 is. This is just one of the devices that's going to make and help that reality become real. You know, actually, before I bail out, I want to just show, because this is a good statement I think we'll end on. And I'm looking at the, these are the replies from that video in the comments. And the problem is, is that this was a great opportunity for Marques, not to prop up crypto, but to paint the future of what technology could hold. And instead, it became a scenario and a lost opportunity to educate people on really the future of where all of this went. And you can kind of just scan down through these. Most of these people have no idea what is happening around the world today. And that, I think, is the difference between the future of where we are today and the future of where you, our children, and their children's children will be in the future. So we're on the right track. Hopefully, you guys are going to share this video. And if you're not in our Diamond Circle, make sure and get in right now. It's another way that we share additional content. It's our email list, and it's also a great way for us to communicate with you around new content pieces and, you know, research, et cetera, that you get over there on the Diamond Circle. If you guys want to catch me out there on X, it's just at Paul Baron. We'll catch you next time right here on Tech Path. Thank you. Thank you.

"All right, so today we're going to dive into a response video to Marques Brownlee. You might know him as MKBHD. Now what Marques did was he jumped into the Solana phone. So we're going to break it down, give you guys some insights, and maybe give you a second opinion here. I think you'll like it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back in The Tech Path. Let's go over to Marques' YouTube page. And as you'll notice here, Marques Brownlee, 17.4 million subscribers right now. And he did this phone review right here, which of course many of you will recognize this. If you're on our channel, maybe you're brand new to understanding what's happening. You just searched out something and thought, hey, this is a Solana phone. What is that? He got 1.2 million video views on this in about 18 hours. So when you look at the impact on Solana and also the impact, I think, on Web3, Marques actually has a lot to say here. So we're going to break down some clips for you. Let's go to this first one. Take a look. Now I know I have been notably skeptical on crypto and Web3 and blockchain and the metaverse and all that sort of stuff over the past couple of years. So you may consider me biased, but I still think if you took the crypto out of this phone, it would at least have potential for one specific crypto stack. One that happens to also be tanking pretty hard and has been tanking for months. This becomes the perfect embodiment of crypto in 2023 at best ahead of its time. All right. So, I mean, hit on a lot of things here. First of all, I agree with him when it comes to the device itself. The hardware is, I would say, a middle-of-the-road, run-of-the-mill hardware. That's not really the advantage of what the Saga brings to a user or to an owner of it. We'll break down a lot of what that is. Before we go there, getting into who this phone is for and then understanding the real strengths of it is, most of the time, is pretty typical of a Marques Brownlee review. It just did not exist here. I think he really weighed heavily on the hardware side of it. And that, I think, was the undoing of really giving the Saga, but more importantly, Web 3, a chance. I want to clip over to this next clip right here of iJustine. Listen in. Now, one of the problems that I've run into, and if you were also into NFTs or crypto, is how difficult and not secure things are to transact on mobile. Now, most of the time, you do need a desktop or you need to have a wallet app browser, and it's super frustrating to try to navigate. And it's also not entirely secure. Now, what I do like about the Saga is that they're introducing a seed vault, so your salon of private keys and seeds are stored securely protected by a dedicated hardware security module called a secure element. I like this because you actually own your assets and you can transfer or sell them if you want. I kind of think of this when I was playing Animal Crossing for my entire island that I've spent 1,700 hours playing and building. If that was something that was on the blockchain, I would be able to easily transfer that entire island to someone else. And each one of those assets wouldn't just be something that I would have in the game. It would be something that I physically, well, digitally owned and would be able to do whatever I wanted with them. Now, if there was some other game that was on that particular blockchain that also decided to share those same assets, I could then take those assets into, I don't know, for example, if it's Call of Duty. I could maybe take some of my wardrobe, the outfits that I had made or created in Animal Crossing or purchased, and I could wear them in Call of Duty. So I'm going to be either going up with this ship or I'm going to be going down with it. I like the fact that, first of all, that's exactly right. The salonophone is for a person like iJustine, someone who is a gamer, someone who is into digital assets, someone who is looking at the next generation of digital privacy and digital ownership. Here's Unbox Therapy. Just to give you guys a size capacity, that's 20 million subs right there on Unbox Therapy. Lou does a great job. And you go back to Marques, we'll go up to his channel right here, 17 million subs right there. And then over here to iJustine, also another tech reviewer, iJustine, at 7 million. So you can imagine the kind of damage that tech reviewers that have this much authority and influence can do. And it doesn't mean that they shouldn't because they should be able to review these devices, give honest opinions, and be able to come up with a solution that maybe can help you. And I think that's the missing part here. All right, so I want to go to this next clip real quick and listen in to this one. There's basically three things that make this a cryptophone instead of just another regular Android phone. So the Solana Mobile Stack, the Seed Vault, and the DApp Store. So the Solana Mobile Stack is an SDK for apps to connect to the Solana blockchain, which, I mean, it's cool that it's built in, but the obvious downside being this does not work with any other blockchain. So no Bitcoin, no Litecoin, no Ethereum. This is just focused on the Solana blockchain. Now price is another thing that comes into play. And I agree again with what Marques said here, but listen into his response on price. A thousand dollars. And that's this one right here. Does any of this justify a thousand dollar price tag? Not really worth a thousand bucks, right? So that's why literally less than a year after it came out, the price plummeted from a thousand to $600. So now the real question is, would you pay, would anybody pay $600 for a barely above average well-built Android phone that happens to have some crypto features built in? You can get a lot more phone for 600 bucks for the same price you could get a Pixel 7 or probably a Pixel 8 by the time it comes out. All right. So just to be clear on this again, and back to the previous clip there, when he was talking about Ethereum and Bitcoin, yes, Bitcoin, why would you need that on there? There's not really a use case for Bitcoin on a device like that. However, Ethereum, yes, there is and can be used within the Solana ecosystem. So that's, again, just another scenario. Now price-wise, the value of these phones drop very quick, very fast. In many cases, a lot of these phones end up being, you know, giveaways on plans that go through the systems, whether it's AT &T, mobile, T-Mobile, etc. One thing about Solana, if you follow them and when they release the saga, they only needed to get, I think, to about 15,000 or 20,000 phones total. That was like the ecosystem that would make this a successful launch. And that would give them enough data and enough examples of how use cases within the Dapp store and also within the wallet aspect of what this phone brings to Web3 to start to really see new development start to occur. And that's when I think we'll start to see the leap forward in other technology. I want to go to this next one because this starts to bridge the gap on the value of this phone, not at just the price alone. Listen in. And something that comes with the Solana Dapp store, something that we haven't seen any other app store do, because the Solana Dapp store allows you to have this direct relationship with consumers, you can do new things like reward them. So we're introducing the saga Genesis token. It's an NFT that establishes that they are a saga user. And because we can establish that relationship, we're going to give them rewards. They'll immediately get 20 USDC and a small amount of Sol to get them started on their journey. But we aren't stopping there because this is an open platform. So this is open to any Dapp, and they're already taking advantage. So you can expect to see exclusive sticker packs from folks like Dialect, plus not getting you off a wait list, a $25 credit from Magic Eden, exclusive mints of 2,000 new, brand new Klainosaurs, and many more. So we're excited because this is the first time that you actually get rewarded for using your phone. It's the phone that keeps on giving. A scenario that plays out for all phone makers in the future, and that is figuring out utility, use case, and value within an ecosystem. And that's where I think Solana is doing some interesting things. So right here was the pass that they were talking about, just the saga pass when you buy one of these phones. Then you go into other scenarios right here. This was the saga pass cards. These were just some of the cards, again, that you got. And we'll continue to get additional values out of this. And as partnerships start to come in, this is where these, because remember, each one of these cards, each one of these NFTs, each one of these assets, whether it's a whitelist scenario that plays into this or others, especially as we start to see more partnerships and more use cases really start to move into the Web3 ecosystem. That's where Solana's value and where the value of the saga becomes very interesting because now you're getting paid, essentially, to have this device. There is nothing else out there like that on the market at all. The real secret mission, though, I think that is here is the fact that this is going to bridge the gap into digital ID. And digital ID is you own and manage all of your assets, including your own personal identification as opposed to Facebook, Twitter, Apple, et cetera, owning you right now. And that's the way it is today. Further into this, I want to get in and just show some of the things you could have got. This is kind of an interesting aspect of this particular phone. With every one of these phones, you get a device-bound, non-transferable NFT, which is the Genesis token, which in itself is kind of a unique technology. And as you start to understand the NFT market, you're going to understand that utility is going to be one of the killer apps of the future. And when you have that kind of use case built into hardware technology, along with wallet security, digital ID, the future of how mobile computing will be done really starts to change things up quite a bit. Further into this, here was Magic Eden. If you have a Solana Saga, there's 25 USDC waiting for you. Set up your Saga Genesis token, sign in, and then head over to the rewards hub and claim. Bonk was, of course, airdropped directly into the Saga and the pre-orders. Here was Solana Mobile. This was another advantage, concluding the first mint on Kleenasors, one of the hottest NFTs out there right now. And again, this will only continue to grow. And I think this is where the value of that phone keeps ticking down after, whether you think about that retail price tag, if you bought one when it was $1,000, it's probably a different, you're a different kind of buyer than anybody out there because you're a crypto native and that value to you is much greater than the $1,000 price tag of that phone. But the $600 phone buyer maybe is a little different buyer. And now they're starting to look at true value. So imagine all those value points that have been added to the Solana phone over time here and it starts to just chip away and it continues to add to it. So that, to me, is a pretty cool thing. And if you just look at current value of Kleenasors right there, I mean, they're at $17 right now, Sol trading around, you know, anywhere between $19 to $21. So not bad. So here was a tweet from Solana Mobile. It's been said before, Saga is the phone that keeps on giving over the past few weeks. We've got 100 whitelist spots across the hottest NFT mints on Solana just for Saga users. Take a look at the whitelist spots and we've got away so far.

"marques" Discussed on Double Tap Canada
"The cost down. So that is something that apple tends to wait for to make sure that it is ready for prime time in their products. But some of the fun stuff that we're not ever going to see the light they likely. Motorola phone number is owned by Lenovo these days. Called the riser. Now this is a kind of flashback because they had a phone called the riser. Many, many moons ago. I think back in like 2000 8 or something like that. It's basically a 5 inch screen phone that when you press a button on the side, a little motor wars, and it goes up to 6.5 inches. So it unrolls an element of the screen. As opposed to you folding a screen. So this is their take on a smaller form factor gets bigger when you want it. That's never going to be popular. Well, listen, I think anything that unless I'm more mainstream companies start adopting some of these things. I don't think they're going to become popular. There's a couple other companies that have released folding phones that may or may not see the light of day oppo is one of them. The concept looks great. Marques brownlee showcased one on one of his YouTube shorts the other day. It was a folding form factor, just a traditional fold, but it folded nice and thin. The crease was there. If you look for it, but they had a nice big screen on the front when it was folded down. That was the same dimensions or the same scale of a regular smartphone display. So it was able to show widgets and able to show miniature versions of things that were on the phone on the inside, which was kind of cool. So we do see things that do we see proof of concepts that may or may not see the light of day, but at least we could see where the trends are going and what people are actually playing with. Or at least what they want to tell us they're playing with, because there's definitely stuff behind closed doors that we don't know about. So it's interesting you mentioned that because we know CES at the start of the year is really where we tend to see the prototypes and the ideas. I didn't think MWC was like that. I thought it was more the kind of the place where the companies would showcase what was next, you know, not all of them. We know that Samsung would generally not do that. They'll do their own events, Apple certainly won't do that. Although I did hear Samsung had one of the biggest stands at MWC, so they were showing things, but they just went bringing anything new out. So maybe it is a chance for the I always thought the and obviously lesser than, but the smaller companies. To come up with. I think it's more of an opportunity for people to focus on mobile, like literally focus on that market and keep it there. And not really straight from it, Lenovo is kind of an example of string from it, but these laptops that they're talking about are 5G connected.

"And when I see it, I think of those friends and my dad that is introduced to the gospel on an aircraft carrier who literally carried him to church. He had surrounded himself with decent friends at south high school in the 40s, and these guys, I might not be here, had not they, these friends taken him to Christ. So I love the story and I feel like I relate to it personally because of my dad. I love it. Thanks, John. Do you both remember in April of 2004, Ryan, you might have been 12.

He said, as a member of the branch presidency in Brazil, brother marques with the other priesthood leaders developed a plan to reactivate those who are less active in his branch. One of those who is less active was a young man by the name of Fernando, I think it's a arugula. Recently, I spoke to Fernando and he told me of his experience. He said, quote, I became involved in a surfing competition on Sunday mornings and stopped going to my church meetings. One Sunday morning, brother marques knocked on my door and asked my non member mother if he could talk to me. But she told him, I was sleeping, he asked permission to wake me. He said to me, Fernando, you are late for church. Not listening to my excuses. He took me to church. The next Sunday, the same thing happened. So on the third Sunday, I decided to leave early to avoid him. As I opened the gate, I found him sitting on his car, reading his scriptures when he said to me, good. You are up early. Today we will go and find another young man. I appealed to my agency, but he said, we can talk about that later. After 8 Sundays, I could not get rid of him, so I decided to sleep at a friend's house. I was at the beach the next morning when I saw a man dressed in a suit and tie walking towards me.

"And all the years he was in Detroit. I even there might have been more people watching with the Buccaneers lines, regulars, or Buccaneers, rams, regular season game, but I had more viewers than a Detroit Lions playoff game ever had. And Matthew Stafford is the most yards and he's got the best stats ever for a quarterback. He's never wanna playoff game. And I just love seeing the guy getting an opportunity to play in really big moments and doing well and winning. I just think Matthew Stafford has waited his whole career for moments like he had on Sunday. I love seeing it happen unless he can do well. And I'm so so happy for Matthew Stafford. Okay, let me drink some water real quick. Final topic of the day. 48 minutes in unbroken, perfect. I'm doing, I feel really good. There's a fan in the background. I hope it can't be heard. I will be heartbroken. If there's a fan you can hear in the background, however, my theory is that the fan, there's a door and a curtain between me and the fan and I think the fan on the lanai is going to block out a lot of the sound coming from my voice out of my apartment. That way people below me and next to me can't hear me. That's my theory. I'm praying, that's how that works. Okay. I already covered three games from NFL week three. I talked about the rams versus Tampa and another topic, Sunday Night football packers at forty-niners. I talked about that. Bears browns, Justin Fields, first ever NFL start. I already talked about those three games. You can find those topics elsewhere. However, there are still 9 noteworthy stories I want to talk about from NFL week three. Number one is this the ravens beat the Lions with a crazy game winning field goal. A new NFL record 66 yards from Justin Tucker bounced off the cross bar, it went in, was good. And to get there, what's even more unbelievable about this kick? It's unbelievable. The ravens had to convert a fourth and 19 on their own 16 yard line and they did. It's insane and I felt really bad for Lions fans. I felt bad because first of all, the quarterback Jared Goff played a pretty clean game, 22 for 30 passing no turnovers. And also the Lions. Ravens receiver marques Brown. I'm not even going to call him Hollywood because he doesn't deserve it. Marquise Brown dropped two touchdowns back to back. And the whole all those people, the Lamar can't throw crowd..

"Now has a chance to kind of fit into that mold of being the guy that is really had had the best season from start to finish of anybody so to me. That's that's the that's the key but also have been game more and more tangibly mid range. They kill you in the mid range devon booker chris paul and bridges in those guys they get to their spots and nets with the bucks like to give up. That's how our defense is predicated on teams having a down floated mid range jump. Shots will we haven't had success two games against this team from the mid range so i'm sure that putin holdren staffer or diligently working on a game plan a scheme to kind of try and thwart their effectiveness as the mid range team. You know. i didn't mean for this to become the the markets johnson is awesome. Our but when. You're talking about chris. Paul being real. Mvp or or in your head sort of full season regular season playoffs in by head. Start thinking well. I wonder what that means for his opinion of unisys to mvp's and i didn't even have to ask the question. You just answered it. And what i'm saying is i should've mentioned assuming you are not a homer and you're you call it straight down the line you're honest you'll be critical of the bucks when it matters but you do it in a way that is not it's not mean or or negative it just it just is you. State the facts when there's a context that needs to be stated even if it's not flattering to the bucks you say it and you just don't hear i don't know that any broadcaster in your position would have just said what you just said about john. And that's part of the broadcast. It's part of wire. Broadcast is so good. There was even a time this season. You guys were playing got. It must've been it. Must've been toronto or something. Because you brought up. The norm powell. Og and obi trade in for gravest vasquez and how it didn't work. Just no one else would do that so anyway. That's just that i think you committed. I saw your collar. I i think i kind of rhetorically just asked the ethers. Weirs grievous basket right now. You know what is he doing now after. Norman powell just little stuff in that game. But you know i like to have fun with it man in and it's the truth you know what i mean. It's it's it's it's it's it's hard to swallow at times but at getting back the mvp. I talking to erik name. That are talented writer for the athletic that covers the bucks great great glad about. He's great he's great. He is great clips that he posts his he gets on my nerves. He's so good with this with this with the way breaks down each is really really good. I still a lot of the stuff but he talked about how jaanus until he played well in the playoffs and the bucks had playoff success. His writing partners in voters would never media would never give him the. Mvp award and so. They didn't finish top three this year. So that that that validates. What i'm saying is that you've got to do it to me. It's it doesn't make sense to be the most valuable player and you're not allowed to consider the most valuable part of the season. That's just me i understand. It's a regular season award. i. I'm not i'm not. I'm not gonna die on that hill but i would love to see a guys if people say well. They've got the finals. Mvp i drink. Go dollar was a finals. Mvp you know what i'm saying. I mean you could see a scenario where chris middleton could be the finals in bt janas could be the overall regular season to be devon booker could be the finals mvp. Chris paul would mean so so that's not cut and dry that way. So that's just that's just me. Man you nailed the most interesting. I think battleground of the series when the sun's have the ball which is just how aggressively the bucks trying to take away those mid rangers. Or how much do the sons hurt them if they start off in a conservative defense. Let's let's flip to the other side when the bucks have the ball. And and i realize it's difficult because we don't know if honestly gonna play or not at the beginning at least when the bucks have the ball in phoenix on defense. What have you noticed about the suns defense or what. What's an area of the bucks offense that you're going to be looking at when the series opens well. Phoenix phoenix defense. I mean they are the best. I believe during the playoffs in terms of restricted area opponent. Bill percents so they've done a really good job just like the bucks are really storing in that area to Another another great status that dan dri aidan When he went head up against janice. I thought janas just from from visually. Just the i've i- tests. Had a lot of success is eight now but you look at the batch of numbers. Seattle's just like ten for twenty four mets. That personally gets eight that he was seventeen for twenty one against everybody else you know. Hit the big forty forty seven. Whatever point game against phoenix so for me. Phoenix's defense and what the bucks like to do the books got you gotta be summit to atlanta america. You hear the guys on. Tnt in how the books they go inside dominate the pain will that might happen. A game two games but mighty williams's too good of a coach to allow to consistently be something that's going to get him beat so they'll make the adjustment once again..

"What he did was just special watch but for the bucks to win at the way they did in in brooklyn on the road man. We were going nuts you. We wouldn't crazy everybody's yelling and screaming. And i'm and i'm like i'm working like i'm getting paid to do commentary. I've just kind of walked but more of a lake type profanity laced. Kind of color commentary. That never ever you know. I'm a christian guys. I'm not proud of that. But all that goes out the window. When i'm when i'm when i'm excited pumped up especially about this team. You know what. What was that talked about on that last possession by the way the last brooklyn possession where it ended with the durant airball when durant was they didn't call timeout. A durant brings up and he passes it off to harden who and you could tell it was like what are you doing man. I got one leg like here. You take it back when he threw that pass. I i remember turning to the guy was watching. Oh that's not this dispossession. As that was just so weird. Moment that i feel like it was lost amid you know kevin durant greatness the bucks win the game like when that pass happen. I remember thinking oh did. They're not going to get a basket on this on this possession and again that goes back to just you gotta you gotta the plan. Fifty plus minutes. Whatever it was clan whole game scorned forty nine. A couple of games prior to this dude had to be just on on the night even on fumes. I mean just just really gasping for like last breath type type air and all that and when that happens as a player i mean. Usa usa critique makes cowards of his but not that he's he was a coward net situation. But you just not thinking. Straight in. Remind is foggy in. And everything's running together in you know yes. It's hard to stay in the moment in. The is a whole lot of challenges. Go on when you have played as hard as well as he played for that amount of minutes. So i with you. I mean when he gave the ball up. It's like okay. Oh what wait. We'll wait a bo. Ah wait a minute you know. It's almost like a plea for somebody else. Kind of take onus off me. A temporary plea. He knew he had to take that shot but if hardwood have been aggressive and would have tried to win it himself. I don't think he would of mind. I've been. I've been in milwaukee a glass for years not since the pandemic of been in the deer district. I'm watching the district on tv. I'm like my god. That is a sea of humanity. This place is going nuts. Milwaukee i know some of our. Espn colleagues who. i love. kind of disparage milwaukee. A little bit a couple of weeks ago. I love those guys. They're entitled to your opinion. Milwaukee like chicago like a lot of mid west cities spring and summer all god. Is it nice there so what you've been walking around like. What is the city just on fire. Can you go guard people high five in the street. Like what's what's lifelike. Yeah no the city is it's crazy. It's i mean and i'm actually in los angeles now. I'll be there for game. Three at home in phoenix tomorrow. Night for for the opening of the nba finals. But getting all these texts my barber. Deedrick the lineup king. That's what i call him. And just a great barbara dietrich king he says me will actually one of my good friends of milwaukee sent me a picture of deedrick just bawling like a baby crying after the after the but the quote to the final but boy lance was like yet. Yeah you boy. Dietrich take any a hard bed. He's all emotional all his feelings over bucks right now but it was a beautiful thing. And that's that's the kind of dedication that these these people in milwaukee. These fans have a toward this team and And again to have it happened away. Did for the milwaukee bucks this year. The city deserves something like that. We've got a running gag. Being ted davis our radio voice Ted always says that. We can't have good things milwaukee something. It always happens whatever sport. It is something something happens to kind of ruin things and it looked like that might be the case when yannis went down with a hyperextended. Need but you know Finally we had the breakthrough and i. It's a beautiful thing. Let's talk about the series i. It's hard to talk about because you know the two time. Mvp status is uncertain. Obviously there's the bucks with in the bucks without unison. The bucks with him are not only more talented. They just play differently. It's the whole thing changes. But what intrigues you about this matchup as you've you did both you did the suns games this year you. They were both epic regular season games. You know these teams. Is you know the the visiting the other team as well or better than anyone in your business. What what sticks out at you is an interesting part of this matchup. What's why are the sun so good. Just what are you looking for when when the game tips. Well chris paul. I'm one of his biggest admirers. just watching him throughout his career. You know when you read about his paws grandfather dying. When he's in highschool grandfather was sixty three and he goes out and scores. Sixty three points in the game in that of that kind of legendary stuff's kind of get. It started bottled him with the clippers. I was doing talk radio with jeans. Alaska in los angeles. In his clipper days and saw him Kind of have challenges with that team team lobster yada good stuff but never going to have the breakthrough in the postseason put. His zag is that when he was with oklahoma city. Last season an uptick as a rebuild year for them and he's just got to be there to to the young guys and they're not gonna do anything and they have success so then you know that what this get. I've always that. He's one of the greatest leaders in professional sports history and the fact he's been president of the players association. I think five or six seven years. Some crazy amount of years is of the respected. He has his pierce appointed. Meant i had to go up to him. When he was warming up at oklahoma city in serb form before our game last year it was a little brief moment where he was kinda kinda broke away from the layup line. And i went up. Put my arm around him and said man look. I'm so proud of just kind of how you conduct yourself where you've ripped yourself as a player as a as a person throughout your entire career thinking over oklahoma city would be the last stop. You know he'd be stayed air a year two years kinda ride into the sunset in. It's all done now all of a sudden here. This dude is in the nba finals and the numbers that he has put up Have just been just been mind boggling. In terms of what he has done as a closer with the numbers. You're twenty seven out of thirty five of their last points against the clippers in game. Six twenty five of thirty seven second half points against the nuggets in game. Ford that gives you an idea how badly he wants this to my point is. That's the guy that you've got to find an answer to you. Not gonna stop him. Maybe that even. I don't know if you can slowing. But you gotta do something to to try and break up his rhythm a bit. Maybe maybe blitz in some office screens switch. Every whatever you're gonna do you've got to try and attack him. You say you chop off the head. The body will fall. He's the head and my final point with chris. I mean i've always been proponent of waiting until after the the nba playoffs to give out the mvp award. He has really been. I call it. The really yoga's great year. Don't get me wrong. Take nothing from here but just like janas. Mvp why was the best in league that year janas will be taken. Lebron's was actually real. Mvp in terms of start to finish..

"Sp's sports humanitarian award. I could not be more excited about this when the bucks made the finals as i gotta get a bucks person on here because i did the whole euphoria thing with the suns fan espn. I need a bugs person. And the first person i thought he would just won't do it. He's too busy to good marcus johnson. Five time all star. Ucla star and now just one of the best analysts working in sports period. When there's a bucks game on television get the bucks feed. I don't care who the other feed is. Get the buxtehude. Because this guy is sitting courtside. Or i don't know where he was sitting this year and you see the game at such a high level in real time. I have to rewind to see the stuff that you see. Boom as it happens matchups adjustments. You're funny you're on the spot. You got the numbers. It's just. I don't know that there's one person in broadcasting who is bringing all those elements to the table every single game so it's really a thrill in an honor to have you on marcus. Johnson how are you. Wow zach thank you for the full. I've written. I've written all that before. I've written that in columns and i've seen it you right but it's funny. You mentioned that and i won't mention this nba executives name. But i had some interactions with him when he was with another team. And he text be doing our broadcast We're playing against his team about stuff that i had said in Subsidy just reinforce what i was saying on the air so i was like wait a minute what what are you do. Watching our telecast with your telecasts is on. he's like always want you guys over us. It's not even a question. So that was. That was one of the highest compliments that i could get but i appreciate that man. We have have a good time. Jim paschi retiring this. You have thirty five years as a milwaukee bucks. Broadcaster has really been a pleasure to work with gus. Johnson started out with also a sock. I've worked with some really talented people in the product has been good organization is great and it's just been been a great run. These last six years and doors. Stevenson is been an awesome addition to the team. Like it's just top to bottom a great broadcast so so you were on you know. I grew up in eighties nba fan. I'm almost forty four years old. So i grew up. Celtics-lakers celtic sixers lakers rockets. The whole thing at one team. That was always right. They're always scared me. As i was a boston found growing up always scared me. I was like these guys are kinda rough and tumble and scary. And they got due to could score and that was the eighties bucks. And and you've been associate you were on that team. You're also on that team now. You're a broadcaster. In milwaukee i just as someone and you guys just always came close and those those philly and boston teams were just so damn good. You couldn't quite ever get over the hump. Just what is the last couple of weeks. Bend like as a as milwaukee person as someone who played on those teams seeing this team. Finally get to the finals for the first time it so long. It's definitely been a vicarious thrill for me and it kind of happened was magnified game. Seven against brooklyn. And i've been in three games seven rookie year against denver The sonics my third year in the league the sixers around my fourth fifth unity. We lost them all but we were close and so i actually posted something on twitter just about the mindset. Going into games that have been. Don't leave anything knowstone. Left on turn you gotta make because you don't wanna look back like i do forty plus years later in wish. You would have made defensive. Adjustment with brian winters on an inbounds. Play down one in the spectrum of bobby jones segment it out you know and you know those kinds of things. It's just stay with so for the bucks to pull out the game. Seven in the funny part about that game. Seven june eighteen was that i was actually at my granddaughter's high school graduations. I didn't get a chance to see the whole game. It was after the so-fi of the stadium. They've got a nice little performing arts center. Beautiful graduation ceremony and so we rushed home after that. And i caught the last three minutes of regulation all of overtime and so that was enough. And that's probably all i could handle. God knew what he was doing. He don't what i could do for myself that day. But the point is that once they got past brooklyn Finding won a game. Seven bucks never won a game seven on the road in the history yadda yadda but that to me was the moment when i felt like this is going to continue to be our year and to see janas. Chris middleton the guys that were here when i started six years ago their development as players as people as family men. As you know. That's always a good thing to be a part of watch that now from from i won't say from afar but we're not great buddies or anything like that but to be able to observe that happening in real time right before your very eyes has been an honor for me so this organization man you know. I'm not just blowing smoke. This organization is is is is to me top. Shell one of the best. If not the best in the league and up. This is well deserved. In terms of all the hard work in the vision that peter fagin and the ownership group had when they purchased a team like what seven or eight years ago. So it it. It's been a right. What are those last. Three minutes of regulation and overtime like the johnson household. Can you sit. Are you pacing when durant shot goes in are there. Are there bad words being screaming. I'd take i gotta know. Take me inside the household. Well so it was my granddaughter's graduation so my sons are he all my sons. I got five boys. Everybody's in the din on sprawled out on the floor on couches by white sitting next to me. She's a big bucks fan. A my son. Chris mode is settled played at ucla. Ease of big kinda k. D. guy so he was actually kinda pulling for katie to have another another phenomenal finished. He was cool with the bus wedding but he kept. So we'd be here me and him are going back and forth. So i'm telling him act that you know the forty eight minutes steve. Nash played him in the series in a couple of games. The fact he had come out in. This game is going to catch up with vision. I'm telling you it's gotta catch up with the and it took the last possession of overtime when he shot air ball. I really would say that that position before that when he didn't get behind the three point line could have won the game The last shot in regulation. But just for whatever reason i think fatigue might have had a had a bit of a factor in that maybe not major but somewhat but the to be able to.

"And even in some previous rounds. I thought he he was doing a little bit more to to work as a passer like he was a couple of his kickout looks for like half a second earlier a beat earlier that they would be like he was looking to exploit the help early instead of what it was too late and got his guys good looks and i think at the highest highest level and now we're at the finals at the highest highest level. That's how he he's got to have that sort of awareness. And i thought he showed good signs of that. In the last couple of series it was making the right decisions of wind pass early and went to go and attack because of the fact that you do have an advantage in your defender is off balance or angles that you can go around them instead of going through them and pick up the offensive fouls that we saw a lot of during that brooklyn series and relatively few of in the games he did play in atlanta. Last thing that. I think we should mention is the bucks. Were pick your metric the best second best third best transition offense in the nba all season some monster fast-break team again when the big fella place when janas place the suns are really good at keeping teams out of transition. Which again is just like. They're fundamentally rock-solid well-coached guys are put in the right positions. No what is chasing an offensive rebound. They shouldn't chase guys are getting back all that stuff but by the numbers at least when you run on them teams have been able to score pretty efficiently. And that's one of the potential downsides of having an offense where there is a player in each corner almost all the time because if they get a rebound you got two guys in the corner and one is just a little late going back. Probably the shots. It's been missed his amid ranger by chris. Paul with eight and rolling. You got four guys below the foul line. That's going to be just another little game within the game. That phoenix is going to have to nail. Because if janas plays you just can't let them get out in transition any extra especially the maneuver that they perfected over the course of the atlanta series of when you do have a big man you know closing out on a guard. Trae lou williams leaking out immediately and worst case scenario. That guard has to follow you down. And you've got a mismatch at the other end and our buddy dunkin tweeted during game six. You'd hope atlanta had a better plan to deal with that. And i'm honestly not sure what that is without compromising the structure of your offense in your spacing there. I think this. I'm just crossing my fingers that we get good jaanus healthy on us. I don't think we're going to know if he's even playing until pretty close to game one. You gotta figure he really wants to play man. I mean you only get so many. Why james harden played a one leg. you only get. It always feels when you get there the first time like. Oh yeah this all get back here. Butts are pretty well positioned to get back there. Really good team pretty young. Nobody's ancient. You just never know. But i think this is going to be a good series. I think my official pick is going to be sons in six. Did you make your official pick yet. I haven't made it yet. I'm leaning towards suntan. Seven suns in seven is the homecourt advantage obviously becomes critical there. All right mr pelham. You have some keys to the finals or a key to the finals up today on. Espn dot com. You'll be writing about all things finals for the next week. Ten days. two weeks over long this thing lasts and then right into the off season draft free agency. Let's go kevin pelton. You are one of a kind. Thank you for coming on. Thanks for having me. It was very odd to have a fourth of july where there weren't a bunch of free agency transactions. Oh i did enjoy like it's it's already the fourth of july like there's a holiday. The fourth of july is a holiday. So you don't have to be like this is the fifth anniversary of.

"Bill just shoots checking them off the list. And i do think by the way the structural the other structural problem the buck solved. Even though drew isn't shooting the ball well in the playoffs just having him out there instead of bledsoe has solved a lot of structural problems for them late in games into threat that he can be. But yeah yeah yes big up. There was stated the obvious but that was a stroke. I hate. I hate that because eric bledsoe was a good basketball player. He's a good player. I thought he was a borderline all star. Both as years in milwaukee's a great defensive player to lack of shooting just proved fatal in the playoffs doesn't mean he's a bad player. It just means drew holidays because of his shooting threat in his kind of more polished off the dribble games. This is a better player. That's why they traded all the stuff they traded for him. I mean bledsoe's more eighty two game player but anyways so eaton was kind of the proof of concept and it's funny because they always at a period of time where everyone was like. Well you know how terrible is eight and gonna be defensively. Can you survive with the andre. Aiden is your center and now two years later. We've come to the point where he's perhaps a plus the defensive end of the court but his athleticism and his size just made him a tough match-up for jaanus at that point and i think it still makes him a tough match-up for jaanus although maybe it's a little less desirable as matchup. Now that you maybe want eight and more around to serve as a help defender but yawn us when he doesn't have the ball. Maybe does allow you to play that role as well. And if you do put crowder on on this you can really easily switch the middleton janas pick and roll because you'd research it'd be twin bridges and crowder. I say that. I say all of that knowing that mikhail bridges is giving up a whole lot of weight and strength against the honest if you make that switch with sixteen on the shot clock. It's a big problem if you make that switch with four on the shot clock or seven on the shot clock. It's much less of a problem. I'm very interested to see what they do. I think they will switch eight and a little bit. They'll they'll try to drop eight and is a little more agile than brook. Lopez's can come up a little higher and get back. I'm working on a story about the andre defense. I talked to him the other day. He was great just talking about all the progress he's made just feeling out. How far is my big man rolling behind me. How how much distance do i have. Am i their option. I'd be more worried about that less worried about that. I think he's gotten a lot better at that and they've been very good at if you watch the tape. If they switch a player onto jaanus who's too small right so if they switch booker onto him even mikhael bridges. They're very good at okay. Where is somebody bigger. Debt can run in and rescue this guy and not give up an open. Three crowder is great at that. Bridges is good at that. I think i think we're going to see that. And just like the bucks. I think the sons are like well equipped to defend a lot of these. A lot of these two man gains a lot of these actions. They just have a good bridges. Crowder eytan even booker like a pretty good switch defensive. Chris paul's gonna fight. Chris paul's beast in the post. I just think they have a lot of interesting answers. One of which is one of the things about putting your center on on jaanus. Is that if in when. And we saw this with brooklyn if in milwaukee goes small to that lineup i mentioned. That's plus thirty one. It doesn't really bother you because the matchups are basically the same like okay. You went small. That's great you didn't really add shooting because continent tucker on the floors. There's not a ton of shooting. You're not stressing me out. Because i already had eight nine tiana's now he's playing center so everything like they're just not their core lineup is not bothered by that milwaukee adjustment and that's like that's almost like the hawks were bothered by it. Because they couldn't play gallon ari collins a cappella gets one of their best. Lineups was taken off the floor. The sons are like it's cool. You do that. it's like fine. We're just gonna play normal. The there's just a lot of versatility in those phoenix front courts in particular defensively and a high basketball iq defensively across the board in those sons groups. And that's the reason that their ear i mean. That's that's that's a lot of it and if you come down to make you pick under the assumption that you honest is going to be close to on her percent. I think what you mentioned. There is a big factor pushing me towards phoenix in terms of that i mentioned interpret them not being stressed out by milwaukee smaller that not being trump card for the box. Yeah i'm gonna pick phoenix. I mean look if you honest one hundred percent. I don't really know who i would pick. But i'm gonna pick phoenix. I think it's going to be a good a good series. Oh another thing. I'm going to be watching if you honest does play. I thought the last four or five games against phoenix and even in previously of the night against peace against atlanta. Sorry.

"And we talked about the corner threes and all that but above all that is the suns. Take the fourth most mid-range shots in the nba and the regular season and the bucks. Give up the fourth most in the nba the regular season so if both play to their normal strategies and again as we discussed maybe they will chris. Paul and devon booker gonna have a lot of chances in like sometimes it just comes down to not necessarily warping your scheme but just playing it. A little better brook lopez. Can you come up a step and a half more jrue. holiday and chris middleton how. How close are you getting around those screens. Do they feel you. Do they hear you from behind are they. Are you disrupting their line of sight at all. Sometimes it's just it's just that and the other thing is phoenix takes care of the ball. They're one of the best turnover teams in the league. That's a chris. Paul trademark if they can win the possession battle a little bit. I think that helps them. And underneath all that is underneath all that is the offensive rebounding and we saw in the last series. If you start switching everything against chris. Paul pick and rolls and devon booker. Pick and rolls. De'andre is going to have a lot of chances on the offensive glass. So that'll be interesting. But the flip side to that is when the bucks switched and that matchup chaos happened. You saw bobby portis get a lotta easy post up buckets against guards because those switches carried over like there's all those things are sort of enveloped in. How do you defend the base. Pick and roll attack of the sons. It's going to be interesting as it gets to the question. That has been interesting for the bucks during this playoffs of shot volume. Can they get more shots in their opponents. Because that's how they've survived the fact that they have not shot the ball particularly well in this playoffs. If we transitioned over to talk you out when they have the ball but you know they may not be able to have that kind of edge against a team with chris. Paul at point guard and de'andre aden at center on the offensive glass. The possession game and the shot games interesting. These are two teams. do not get to the line. Hardly at all there in the bottom of the league in generating free throws which for tv viewing purposes were just audience. Being purposes is very good. Anything else you want to discuss before we moved to the other the other side of the ball which i think is even more interesting. Frankly i think we've covered it okay. Well let's flip. Milwaukee gets the ball. What's the first thing you're looking for and again it's it's hard to talk about the bucks. We don't know if the big guys playing. But what's what's interesting to you about. This milwaukee offense vs phoenix defense while i want to start with what i just mentioned is them surviving. Their lack of shooting the bucks have shot. Thirty one percent on threes in the playoffs. There's only three teams have lower marks and it's like teams that have long been eliminated months ago. If i would've told you over the last couple years given how identified the bucks were shooting threes that they would shoot this poorly and still make the nba finals. I don't think you would have believed it. Is louis three. Point percentage by any team ahead of the nba finals. That reached them since the two thousand four detroit pistons at thirty percent i think true holidays shooting twenty nine point nine percent on threes in the playoffs and they're these games where it's like forbes gets played off the floor. They don't trust his defense off to play like christmas. It's like khris. Middleton is just a superman from three and nobody else is doing anything. The good news for the bucks is the percentage. You've shot over the first three rounds. Basically tells you nothing historically about how will you're gonna shoot in the final. So maybe eventually it's going to come around. I mean in the brooklyn series in particular. Seemed like you could explain. It is okay. Well they've gone from. They don't aren't getting the catching shoes. Because of the net switching. They're shooting all these off the dribble threes. That's not really their strength. And then there was. Also the fatigue element of all the minutes that holiday and middleton were playing and the defensive assignments against the net stars and then that that didn't really apply at all in the atlantis series in the same way and yet they still didn't make shots like you keep waiting. Eventually the bucks are gonna make shots right. This is the story of the mike. Buddha holzer coaching era in atlanta and milwaukee whenever they don't win it's because they just haven't made open shots but they have managed to survive by way. I look when they lost that game. Five in brooklyn falling from like eighteen points ahead and like their offense. Their offense basically went into the blue screen of death boat like just someone unplugged your whole year appliance and it stopped working and they had no idea what they were doing anymore. I did an emergency podcast with wendy because to talk about durant who went. You know bananas beyond bananas super-duper bananas. And i said look this feels like cosmic death for the bucks this game. It's just all the booted holes are stuff wrapped into one horrible game. Eater down three two. And i said but you have to zoom out. You got game six at home. You gotta really wounded opponent. You got atlanta and philly of slugging it out on the other on the other end and like you're just better than atlanta and phillies giving you zero confidence that they can figure out their own freaking issues and then you're in the finals and that's exactly what happened. They persevered. they leaned on their defense. And they deserve a ton of credit for just gutting through bad bosses ugly losses adversity injury. Like it's not the prettiest run it doesn't necessarily make me think that they've like solved any structural problems other than the fact that jaanus has clearly accepted and lead to his role as a screen setting big man which for milwaukee's long long term. Trajectory was a must happen and has happened but they're here. They're in the finals initiate. Apologize to nobody when they have the ball i am. Let's just start right off. The bat i'm interested in the matchups in the regular season de'andre eight and was the primary defender on jaanus. We've seen a lot of teams put their centers on jaanus. they also have jae crowder. Who is the primary defender on unionists in the heat bucks series last year and did quite well in a series. I think most of us thought going in bam out of bio get that job but but jae crowder got it And so. I think that's going to be interesting. If andrea neeson unison. They do use them as a screen center. A lot will is eight and going to switch. So you're going to drop. How are you going to navigate that And and again tucker. I think if i were if i were monty williams. I would put chris paul on. Pj tucker and say we're going to try and spare you as much as we can We're going to put booker on holiday. Mikhael bridges on middleton which were the matchups a lot in the regular season. And go that route and dare you to try to hurt chris. Paul who's not a week defender. But just he's he's old and has been banged up and you short Dare you to as as we saw with. Trae young. Dare you to involve. Pj tucker in the offense and if that's the case you know your next best thing is if drew holiday has booker on him if there's any if there's a link defensively in phoenix starting five and it's it's week only by comparison to debit booker's a solid defender. He's week only by comparison. I think you've got to lean into that holiday jaanus pick and roll. Because if i've got bridges on middleton and crowder or eight non honest i might switch the middleton on his pick and roll which has been my bread and butter. But if i'm forcing the bucks to lean into holiday. Instead of middleton is a ball handler. I feel like that's a slight win for me. You know drew's just not as good of a shooter and we saw the last couple of games. he's his decision making can really go haywire. Sometimes but i just think like how would you set up the matchups. Do you like eight. Nine the honest would you put eight nine lopez. Do you see on. Pj how do you set the chessboard. So i think that eight nine. This is interesting. Because you mentioned. A lot of teams do this but phoenix. I feel like in some ways. Set the template. This was a game back in march. Twenty nine thousand nine where they beat milwaukee at home it was weird. I re watched a little bit of the first quarter of that. And it's like oh dragon benders involved in this game. And he's on not on not even his stint on milwaukee which feels like a million years ago by way. This is the drug and bender bowl. It's dettori craig cash considerations bowl. It's the we. Don't have eric bledsoe on our team anymore. It's a lot of bulls. A lot of bowls. Some weird ties between these franchises. Obviously you go back to the kareem. Abdul-jabbar coin flip in nineteen sixty and tori. Craig is going to be an interesting one because he could play. A factor in this series with is gonna be a factor. I looked at torrey.

Anxiety, Explained with Luana Marques
"Do you define anxiety. So i think there are lots of definitions but less think about it and overestimation of threat in the rest of nation of your ability to actually handle that threat it's really related to what you're saying to yourself right. Anxiety affects our thoughts. Our emotions our behaviors really our prediction. That we can't handle what's gonna be thrown at us. This is navigating the world fretful frightfully. Both in terms of the challenges we face and our resources. It's absolutely right now. We imagined that resources are not going to be enough to handle. Whatever it is predicting is about to happen. That will have a negative impact. What do we know about what exactly does to the brain. Zaidi really often turns on our amid la the old lizard brang and allows us to start preparing for five flight or freeze in extreme signs of anxiety. It also does something unique about our ability to think it turns off. Our prefrontal cortex should say it is just not as activity. So that's why often when somebody comes to me and says hey i'm anxious and i can't think straight and that's absolutely right. Your brain is just not working. it's best when designing it becomes too much. It's so interesting. Because i mean this is sometimes referred to as the amid della hijack that you get activated the libertarian gets going the repealing folds of the brain are activated and the newer parts of the brain. The prefrontal cortex which does are planning and rational thinking the ability to use that goes close to zero. Sometimes it really does because we don't have some things to run for an alliance in fact the body shuts down a lot of the oregon's so if you are really in a threat situation often people are gonna say in a stomach ache or a have in. I'm sweating that's your body. Just preparing you for dealing with what needs to be dealt with. It would just keeping you safe. And you don't really think in fact you don't

Sustainability is like coal mine. No yeah renewable energy. Yes and that's about as far as it goes but if we can start to really dig deep in like how does that relate to access to education. How does it look at child. Mortality does look like at the world index. How does it look like at the happiness index you know. How do we start to look at these more. Holistic ways of quantifying what value is So that's kind of space And then land were working on a ask a quick question before we go into land. That's an admirable project love it. You're essentially creating a real time. Mri for to identify vulnerable places. How does economics works there. Is it a this much data. Let me sell it back to the nation or state or to the real estate development projects. I don't quite understand like how does that incentive stuff so the stakeholders would be project developers Insurance companies pension funds You know even academia You know minors You know There's a lot of different stakeholders could actually utilize this data so for example in africa You know they don't have the census data that we have right so one case study we did in rwanda was being able to actually simulate putting You know whatever megawatt Electricity distribute distributing Electricity grid in a place in rwanda and we were able to make correlations to what the social impact in the environmental impact would be just one more thing about like africa. We can make you know wealth Correlations by looking at night lights so looking at energy so looking satellites from night where the places that are lit up where the places that are would give an indication of where there's trysofi electrically has correlations to wealth of wealth has the Correlations to education and access to education right and so Through that you know. Moving that over to say a north american concept A lot of these municipalities throughout the nation need climate. Resiliency plans right. So it's really expensive for to hire consultants to go across you. Say let's put some arbitrary state in say kansas right. Look at all the rules and saying okay. that's vulnerable to a category four or category five tornado. So you know what we would be able to do with. Satellite imagery is being able to map. You know that whole scenario and see where the vulnerabilities are within that community. So they can actually plan. Where do they need to have distributed energy. Where if this category five tornado will to come through here Where the deployments of of hospitals you know or you know are the hospitals actually acquit To sustain a category for hurricane.

All My name is Marcus. Marshawn I'm a recovering alcoholic published author and all that good stuff. I before the books and everything and before I even became healthy in any way I was I was I was a problem child no. Europe. And a no it was forty one years old now in my sobriety date is November. Twenty, six, two, thousand, one. So I got close to nineteen years I'm almost there I was born nineteen seventy, nine January seconds. Just. Outside of Portland Oregon I live in San Francisco now in here a while and. I don't know if I was born any way I don't know born addict I. I, don't know if I was headed predispositions. It runs in the family on both sides of my family, right? Right? Yeah. But something something spoke to you when it comes to addiction. Yeah, it was born in nineteen seventy nine I. Was the first grandchild. I was my mom first child she had joss have a brother who's about seven years younger than me but I was. Accustomed to in the very beginning, I got accustomed to all the attention all the gifts. All everything you know the first few Christmases was all about me which was great and I didn't know ever change and when my brother came along when cousins came along, there was competition for attention and started to take all that away as like I started having to perform more had to be funnier it I just took it on his challenge I became like medium and everything and people loved it but every. Other kids. Be. Around. Yeah and I I didn't hate it but I was I was irked you know like Roy Sharing and. Is just like an often you know when when we when we work on ourselves, we get sober. We realized some of the root of our addictive processes are in our past in our childhood and stuff like that. So that makes a Lotta Sense. Yeah I it's I think it's one hundred percent like everybody's going to have to deal with the past. Yeah. So well, we are passed right? Yeah I my mom got remarried when I was five years old. So there was a step dad in the picture and They had my second my brother together, and so there was a lot of conflict between me and my step dad and and just all that a lot of people a lot of steps it's have that story and. Leading home really early. I left home at fifteen and my grandmother. Cross I adopted me but I was I was a latchkey kid and I was on my own now and I. So I went from living in the country out on a farm and my Stepdad was intact and used math genius and I was just a kid and we didn't get along. We were totally different. I'm kind of an artist and we right right it's like it was it was rough. We did not get along my mom's in the middle of it was tumultuous kind of on your own. Yeah. At first I was like this is great and but then There's no money I was on my own financially I just remember having to buy my own hands and everything for Ninth Grade Tenth Grade House like I was on my own weird. All my friends, all my regular normal friends were with their parents house and things were normal for them and I was just like loss for years. When I was fifteen sixteen I transitioned into drinking and drugs. And I had a good time if it a lot of things for me I forgot about all the pain of not being around family, right? Yeah. About being or I mean like alcohol and drugs were great for forgetting that you're broke. Forget any pain that you have. It's all gone. So and I got into the psychedelics I got an ecstasy I I never gotten to like math or anything but I stare meant that a little bit. So it's just started to progress from there. Yeah. quickly quickly, really fast because the age of fifteen to twenty two I used every day something then I couldn't twenty two. So most of my story. Is really about my using I don't have a thirty five year career using things right? Right yeah. It was short. It was fast I had a lot of fun. So what made you? What made you decide to say? Okay Hey, this isn't working for me like I gotTa Stop I. GotTa do something. Okay. So where it starts where I wanted to stop it was It was. Christmas Eve two, thousand of the year two thousand and I was I was working in restaurants and bars, and it was a great time Portland living in Portland Migrate Northwest Portland Neighborhood Powell's bookstore and all that way hipster kid and.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra review
"Note twenty and twenty ultra no twenty and not twenty ultra how the fastest processors in the galaxy series it comes with an. All new laser autofocus sensor, and for pro video mode, we also built an extra controls to give you videos an extra kick the no Tony Ultra like okay. Well, you you saw the issues with the s twenty ultra. He added a laser to it and then you made it made it a note it seems like it was really straightforward. I thought it was really good but it seemed like it was a really straightforward phone. I bet if there were no focus issues on the twenty ultra, it would have just been the same thing in a much more square. Body he basically and a Stylus was probably the plan. But yeah, they they fixed that little that focus issue and for phases tech delivery, and then they made a note and that's that's what a lot of us we're looking for. So I like that phone well, and it's like you know forty broke you know don't don't fix it until they fixed the thing that was broken they kept the rest of the same true. The regular note twenty though is just a baffling phone. What is the deal there? I called it the nope twenty was really happy with that title which I loved the title. Ever, house so jealous. It was I mean it's a thousand dollars and I for the longest time I didn't really in my device reviews go super deep on pricing because you know especially even with Samsung, it's going to go down over time. You know things change there's various deals in different markets while Blah. So I would just analyze like the device, but now pricing is so important. There's so many different tiers and so much competition at each price range and the note twenty came out and it was just like you put it up against the other thousand dollar phones and you're like this is not anywhere near what it supposedly like what happened here. This is not the right price and I think that actually took away from like actually being a pretty decent phone like that's what ended up talking about in the video is like take the price tag off of it like that's a unique combination of check marks like for a phone and they're offering that and you know once left the price on a thing like clearly this is a bad by, but it was a weird choice for that for that price. Well, so I mean the big thing for me was the the lack of higher frustrate which on the note is in particular importance because it does actually help with a latency. A little bit So you really feel it in theory I. Think you're right. It is the right interesting combination check boxes because if there are people that really desperately need a style if you like in that note world there should be a lower cost option for you like that that's a great idea and then so they made the phone that was of lower cost option for people and they didn't put it at a lower. Yeah, there's like two other phones with Stylus that seen this year I think ones like a four hundred dollar Motorola phone and maybe one other and it's like they did make a pretty unique phone there I almost wonder do you know if it's still thousand dollars? Are they finally lowering it though I mean those those inevitable. Samsung discount. So you can find it for less I. Mean I just published my review. It was relatively late and my original headlined was like. Don't buy it without a discount. That's that's actually the shortages. You can find it relatively less than go ahead and get it. If you can't just wait
What to expect from iPhone 12 online event
"Are you? What are you expecting out of Apple? Well I always know what I'm hoping for, and then what I'm like realistically expecting. So I'm expecting the new iphones basically, it'd be the focus they talked about speed. So yeah, five G. faster chips faster screen maybe fingers crossed hoping actually we should talk about that. We're going to get the the topic today by the way of Samsung we're going to get into Samsung. Like how they deal with screens but I've been saying that at a thousand bucks, you should expect a high refresh rate and I think even saying that some similar things but is that is it okay that apple doesn't like generally the rest of their animations are really smooth or is it like this is a mess you know it's so for Apple, there's a couple of. Weird specifics that apply to them. So number one for me, the iphone is these smooth is sixty hertz phone that I consistently use all give them that but also to apple's like the one company that consistently gets away with the four thousand dollars I should be getting this SPEC and I'm not. They don't get away from that as far as numbers on paper. Pretty. Constantly. So we're not GONNA get a huge four, thousand, five, hundred, million, battery we're. Not GonNa get US sixty four megapixel camera but just you know higher frustrate is one of those things I just I love it on every other phone I can't expect it to not be awesome on the iphone just give it to US already. Yeah. Right. Had It on the IPAD for. Years to have something like that. I mean I'm expecting the exact same thing. I'm hoping that the stuff with like the the wide band doesn't mean that it's more expensive on verizon decided to do that for millimeter wave because a bunch of other people been doing matt but I guess we'll see
Thousands in Puerto Rico without power after earthquakes
"The recent earthquakes importer Rico have caused widespread power outages on the island leaving thousands of residents without electricity and while the power authority says it's restored electricity to around ninety six percent of the population intermittent outages remain the damages particularly severe in the southwest where officials say it could take more than a year to repair a major power plant in the region and but it bother Porter Rican electric power authority has been in crisis for years dealing with crumbling infrastructure frequent power outages and bankruptcy and that's why some community organizations like the Porter Rico community foundation are taking matters into their own hands they've started installing micrograms in low income areas after hurricane Maria Nelson Cologne the president of the organization says they've already completed for projects serving sixty four communities Weber whole land was global back in those for a proud day war powers by solar so they didn't have one day of corruption they didn't have any major style and they keep moving forward under former governor regardless say you'll Porter Rico had made an ambitious commitment to get one hundred percent of its energy from renewable sources like solar by twenty fifty but since Rosales resignation last summer those plans remain uncertain I'm joined now by Michael diapered an author and journalist based in San Juan and Sergio marques watch a policy director for the center for new economy also in San Juan thank you both for joining us thank you Michael you've been reporting on the aftermath of last week's earthquake tell us what the infrastructure looks like in the places that you visited so far I mean it's striking really I mean particularly in Quantico which was I would say the community most of your he hit on the south and the ironically also with the US military first landed in eighteen ninety eight when they when they invaded Puerto Rico you you have pretty widespread destruction and I would say the population as well you know there's quite a bit of of collapsed buildings and very few people still actually living in the in the center of the city a lot of people have moved elsewhere or living in you know make shifter temporary accommodations what is the power situation like in that region in the southwest part of the island I think it's come back in in some places but so many people are living in such kind of improvised accommodations I mean I don't think a lot of people have regular access to the fruits of electricity as there is you're used to having when they're living in their own homes and of course prep service can be somewhat spotty in normal times so to speak so that's been something that's been an ongoing problem even before the earthquake Michael you mentioned but I by which is the Porter Rico electric power authority there been calls for the executive director Jose R. tease to resign that's been hash tag Jose Ortiz great noon see ya tell us about that where does that stand I mean I think people are are pretty upset with his performance in an interview he said that you know he was called to lead prep and he didn't send the CD and anyone which I think gave a not really great impression to people about his attitude towards the crisis Sir your what it where his famous stand I mean we know they've had a spotty record with that the island so far since hurricane Maria are they able to repair the grid Congress actually appropriated two billion dollars just after you Ricky Maria twenty seventeen and they were your market specifically to modernize the grid that money unfortunately has not been disbursed yet deferral garment I don't know if it's for you must fault if it's the office of management and budget but something you definitely is holding up the money in Washington DC so you don't last may we said put Rico announced a very ambitious plan this is under governor because but our CEO who since stepped down after protests mounted on the island he set out an ambitious plan to get all of the islands electricity from renewables by twenty fifty what progress has the island made since then unfortunately very little approximately around five percent of all the electricity produced and put a recall right now comes from regal sources it's going to be very difficult to reach that target at this space we need of prep and the private sector to start investing a lot more aggressively in this renewable sources or otherwise we're just probably gonna miss it at all and not just the deadline I mean Sir do you do you think that this is ultimately a solution for these infrastructure issues given that there been natural disasters like hurricane Maria like the earthquakes going forward well it would certainly help as as we listened to doctor call on it he did mention that you know those communities that have access to many greats that were connected to solar panels did not suffer an outage and and that's the whole point I mean we're trying to change the system from a centralized system where you have five or six big units around the island to a lot of smaller generation capacity heated in many points across the island so when we have an earthquake say you want to go which is in the southwest part of the island these girls for example doesn't have to suffer a complete outage we mentioned that since oversee your has stepped down and there's been a lot of change importer Rico not just said natural disasters but also politically one bass was is the new governor of the island and she's got a new administration is their political will Sergio to continue to push for solar at that level that's going to be an interesting question Mrs basket is is from the same party as going across the yellow so in theory she would not have any political constraints in terms of pushing forward however she hasn't been very clear as to what your plan is going forward and of course we have elections in November so that could change everything Michael when you talked to residents of the island have been affected by this most recent wave of earthquakes our people all talking about solar energy directly are they talking about what one to Vasquez's saying or not saying or or are there concerns much more basic than that I think one thing is that people feel like they've been extremely battered in recent years but these natural disasters and it's really you know kind of rocking them back on their heels yet again and I think you know one thing that a lot of folks on the ground here is that they're just wondering I think English perhaps the state as a whole could be a little bit more responsive to their needs I think a lot of people may be feel that you know that the political parties in San Juan and it's an interesting figure that I always remembers that like seventy percent of the energy importer Rico I think it is is created in the south of the country and the usage is seventy percent of the north so it's kind of with this reverse relationship that places have and I think a lot of these people who don't necessarily feel like the political actors in in San Juan in the capital or really necessarily advocating for their interests all the time so here we've seen that to that point that some communities have decided to take the situation into their own hands and build their own solar power networks without government help how common is it for folks to do that and how effective is it it became a big part of the solution if you will just after here in my area because they were communities as you know that where without power for almost a year after the year Ricky so there there was a lot of interest mostly from the private sector and NGOs to try to get some independence from the government owned you know electricity company and there has been some success in terms of getting electricity many greats in some of the most isolated communities but we still have a long ways to go it's not a a hundred percent solution right now given that you know solar powers and agreed that we have it's really old so the greed will have to be modernized in order for poor regal to really scare up to the goals that were set up by gore and offers a yellow but it's it's a good start and also as I mentioned earlier we're still waiting for a significant amount of money that will be used to rebuild it read which is an essential component of reconfiguring the whole electricity system yeah Sergio marques watches the policy director for the center for a new economy and Michael divert as an author and journalist based in San Juan thanks to you both I
