"But of course, you should, if you consider this as financial investment, you should definitely know everything about it and realize the risk with it. Because even if you're record label, investing in an artist project is really, really risky. You song will become a hit or not, and it happens in the record label, what they do their calculations. They consider if they have a success rate of like every tenth of the songs they're releasing, it's a good thing into one song. We always be a very risky thing to do. So you should consider this as consumption as a fun thing that you want to participate in. The problem we're trying to solve here is one is bringing the money of course. The other is more important. It is bringing the crowd because we need the crowd to market and promote the music. Well, let me tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to upload my Christmas album to co write. And I am just going to see how easy it is to maneuver, but we can have a follow-up podcast. I am going to give a good go to. I'm going to actually test drive your platform. Is that okay? I'm encouraging everyone to try our service out and also give us feedback because we know we're not fully done. But we also believe we have done great. And I think this is part of the whole web three idea. It's like we need to build this service together with the community and eventually we will have like trying to get like a governance structure where fans and artists actually are part of it's like it's so important to get the feedback because we can sit on our nice little office and figure out a lot of ideas, but eventually the people that use the service will be the one that comes up with a great ideas, I guess. So yeah, I'm super happy to get your feedback. I'm going to test drive this product, and then what's the next big thing you have coming out, you said, and then we can combine it with that. You said you have some kind of a big release of I would say, I would say the cool thing would be to try it out. Maybe as an artist, if I didn't misunderstand you, you have a Christmas. That's great. But also as a backer, I think when we launched our mission a couple of weeks, I think that's a great time to join the platform. You can of course join it before that. But you won't find the missions. But the way we try to start engaging people in more active way, that is what's driving me right now. Okay, so when's missions coming out? I can't tell you the exact date, but we're talking weeks. Okay. We'll do. So that's what we'll do. Yes. My crypto Christmas album is going to be uploaded. It's a scream. I tell you what, it's absolutely hysterical. Everything I do when it comes to music is just to make people laugh. So what I will do is I will wait till that is out. I will then upload my crypto Christmas album and we will then have a follow-up podcast where I will give my absolute honest opinion to everything. Is that nervous laughter? Love this. This will be this will be one of the most fun projects ever. All right, well, I like this already. I'm looking forward to it. You know, Matthias, I can't thank you enough for coming on to crypto and blockchain talk. You are an absolutely fantastic and interesting person. Oh, thank you so much. It did though.

"So of course we try, we're from Stockholm so we can see here and we realized if you have like, say, if we create a co write evening, a showcase where we bring up 5 of these bands that you're talking about like great bands on a local level and they play on stage in our host says, hey, did you know that you can invest in this great band and put $10? And you have a piece of the royalties when it starts to stream on Spotify. Every time we did this, we always sell out all the campaigns in like no time. So it's obviously a very efficient way for artists to get fundraised just as they in the history. They put out a 102 cities that they have created on their own and they sold it at the gate. That's exactly the same thing. So what we're doing stuff. So I think as we grow, we will try to set up different types of projects. So I would say finding could help us with live showcases to create scenes for artists that delivers and distribute songs with us. That's one thing. We're doing partnerships. For instance, in Australia, which is pretty far from Sweden with a producer community called 4000 studios. And these are the main producers of Australia. One of them constantly inhibits the SQL song dance monkey with tonight that has billions of streams. So that community has a studio complex where we're now partnerships, so we bring in independent or to just use the space and record stuff. And by doing these kind of marketing and promotional partnerships, we believe that we need to basically spread our brand because as in when you know about Cora doesn't really matter if you're in Stockholm or Brisbane, it works the same. So you go surf event in Brisbane and you can gather your 200 closest friends and family and you can raise some money on the co write platform and we don't have to be there in person, even though if we want to.

"UF. It's a different experience, an easier experience. But you know, you're obviously on the right track. You're also listed on binance's recommended collections of NFTs. I mean the right and Alan walker originals, you know? It's looking pretty good for you. I mean, you guys are obviously making those partnerships to make this happen. So what else do you have then in the pipeline in terms of partnerships? What we're doing a lot of stuff actually and but right now we're focusing very much on the product, I would say so it's about the I mentioned this mission thing. Vision of ours that we will create this set of missions to be able to solve the backers and we can do today. And that's also when we eventually launch our token, it will be a part of that ecosystem to try to sort of create a gamified experience, which is not only about booms for certain track. It's basically how we can build a community together and create value because I think in the end, if we have a community like say in a year or two, we'll have 2 million people in the co write platform that are music lovers that are there to support the next big thing and fairly easy to ask you to your point earlier to attract artists. So for us it's about attracting music lovers and attracting artists to the platform to grow crazy fast in that sense. And then on top of that, we need to develop and release new stuff on the consistent basis. But one thing I want to mention in the upcoming week is actually really, really exciting. It's more like it's more like a fun project. It's ever doing a big partnership with a Sweden festival called way station driven festival. And we are creating just a sort of showcase what NFTs could be. We're doing an art project together. And it's called way out west moments or moments.

"Several other players that were competing, but then come this green little fellow from Sweden called Spotify, which actually did the best service, and that would make them immigrate. And that made them survive. But nobody knew that 2008. You knew it like 2013, but still, at that time, 2013, Spotify was generating 93% of the revenue, I believe, to Universal Music in still as of today 2022, which is 9 years later. Streaming is not generating 97 93% of the total revenue to the music industry. It's quite far from that. It's more like in the range of 61. So still, the world has still quite a big time of many years to catch up with Scandinavia. To that extent of streaming which is now considered like old news. So that's the same thing some companies and products will be earth and they will take leadership and trying to build this new industry going forward. Some others will fail. And hopefully I'm not one of the failures in the end or co write and hopefully correct will become one of the success stories that Google has from now. I got to tell you, and I have, I do have this magic aviva touch. I also have a crystal ball, which seems to work more than not. If anything, it's actually extremely accurate. I honestly think you're going to make it, but I think it but I do also think that it's going to be the long haul. It's going to, this is not that famous expression. It's not, it's not a sprint. It's a marathon. I mean, because it's mercy of obviously adoption. And you know, this is the problem. There's a lot of issues right now when it comes to getting people and educating them and getting them over this like it is going to become with every iteration of whatever is happening out there.

"And that's also, I believe, incurring the time when you engage with the service with from the Fiat perspective, we will have time enough to engage you. So we hook up your bullet, you realize that if you do missions using crypto, you have a chance of heart fund, and then comes the NFT, which gives you more utilities and real values from a certain artist, just like the Alan walker case. And it's about teaching and taking things step by step. And we're definitely in it for the long run. This won't happen overnight. But I'm also a 100% sure that in a ten year perspective, I would bet that at least ten, 20% of the total music industry will be run by projects like this. And if we're good, I do well, we will have good chance of grabbing a big chunk of the new generation of music industry, which I believe. That's our ambition. We think that we need to stay for a long time. We need to do the right stuff and execute well. And then we have a chance of actually changing things that we need to think needs to change. But having said that, of course, they will be struggles along the way. But I definitely think that the ten year plan, I think that's about right, to be quite Frank with you, because you see the thing is, is that you've got this, you're with a brilliant idea, but still with everyone keeps saying, and this is the interesting thing, because everyone's like, oh, well,

"We're closing in on hundred, I guess. So when hopefully everything will be done. So it repeats here. I said it was 25 pieces per video. So it's in total 75 different pieces with video clips on like 5 seconds each. And then we have done hundred versions of each of them. So in total, there are 70,500 NFTs to find and yeah, so yeah, but I think we will announce the total result of this during next week. And then the videos will be released as soon as we have people have found all the segments of the video. Now I love savage or hunts. I love things that make it into a little bit of a little bit of a game, especially because you have this like E gaming love, it sounds lost anyway. But I got a really serious question to ask you here now. So in the catalog of podcasts that I've done before. And I thought about this even before you came on because I've interviewed other companies who have had very similar ideas to what is to what you're doing here. Obviously not the idea of teaming up with somebody like Alan walker and coming up with the scavenger hunt. I mean, that's marketing brilliance. But you know, they're talking basically artists coming on, you know, letting the community support their projects, their music, and then obviously the artist would set the level of how or set the contract of one person who's investing in their music. They would get from it. And from the other music NFT platforms or the other music platforms in some instances that have done how they have done is really didn't do very well at all. So I want to ask you this. Do you think your brilliant idea? Because it is brilliant. There's no two ways about it. This is an absolutely fantastic platform and idea. And obviously I'm going to ask you in a minute what makes you different from these other NFT music platforms. But do you think it's still, do you think you're still too early in this space because adoption just in crypto in general and in blockchain in general is still spinning a lot of people's heads this in that way?

"That's what we're trying to do. We're trying to solve what are you just described? The marketing and promotional problem for artists to get out and cut through this noise of 70,000 people. So you should rather compare us with the record label and how they do things. We try to help artists. That's what I was trying to get to. I wasn't comparing you to Spotify. I was comparing you to the old school record. Yeah, yeah, but then the explanation is pretty simple. I would say. So looking at these, the problem only artists who has one of those 70,000 songs and put it out on Spotify certain Friday is that how the help should I cut through the noise here because there's so much else how will I find my audience, get help to reach people. And to do so, you need to use traditional media. You need to use PR you need to do digital advertising, you need to do a lot of stuff, but apparently you need to also have great music. And all these things that I just mentioned costs money. So without a budget, you will stand, you have a very poor chance of reaching out there. Even though you have talent. So talent is the most important part. So if you have the talent and you work hard, you will need to produce a very good song with your laptop computer and not that much of an equipment around you. But then you need all the rest. So you need to be like, have a quality enough and you need to be ambition is enough. And then you need a body. That's the first problem. And that we now you can do it historically in the old school way. You go to a record company, and then if you're lucky, you get signed with a record contract, which means that you get an advance, and that advance you then need to have to pay back a new deal you get, which is normally around like 20%.

"And I think we're tried our best at the universal, but I think still to your point, what happened with the digital revolution last time is that nowadays, 70 thousand songs are released on Spotify every single day. And I think are at least a couple of 100,000 artists there that everyone would consider professional independent artists with like the quality enough and the ambition enough to come at least successful enough to live on their art. And that kind of volume is nothing that will industry today can take care of. So just by volume, something needs to change. But it wasn't actually at universal like this kind of we got together because I have a cofounder here who was part of the whole journey named Emma was not part of it. At least at the point of the idea of co write was basically based on the trend that, okay, how can we cope what power out there is big enough to cope with these kind of volumes of professional artists. And the only power we saw big enough was the fact and the power of the audience. And that's why the idea is basically what you do at co write enabling people to back music you love with money and activity and engagement. And then you have a chance of sharing the revenue with the artist as the music streams on services like Spotify and Apple. The idea is basically imagine if you find Ed Sheeran on the street of London like 12 years ago before his first single and you had a chance of backing him with let's say ten pounds. And then what happens is that you get a piece of his records to stream. And now his stream billions of times of these services, meaning in this case, which will happen very seldom, you would actually be able probably to buy a swimming pool for that tiny investment. So that is the thrilling point of investing in early artists on top of that you have this idea that the music is industries as always been built on this relations between the guys that's on stage and all these people that are below the station and watch the show. So this community, I would say when I heard about blockchain and additional for the first time, meaning the decentralization of organizations, the potential to build community driven businesses, I thought that, okay, so the music industry is probably the perfect fit here because you have an industry which is already built for that purpose, but based on old school and historic restraints in technology, there is a lot of middlemen in between that try to sort of make them fix these problems. And the main problems that they try to fix in a world in nano world is like the artists that want to sort of proceed with career. He will always need funding and he will need some marketing and promotional support. That is basically what the record label are helping with. But if we, instead, could use the power of the fans to create or solve these problems like giving the artist money enough to proceed with his career, but also a digital street team of people that are happy to engage because they're part of the business. We believe that that is the power that probably will be able to do the problem of hundreds of thousands independent artists going forward. But also established artists that realize that the real power lace in the community rather than to have a great deal.

"Which I hope you don't turn off the radio station because I did try. But what I did do was I found someone to come on to this podcast who I think is going to give us marvelous insight in what is happening into the digital music space. Everything that's happening in terms of NFTs and blockchain and all that good stuff. So without any further ado, I want to introduce Matias tank blad, and he is here to tell us about his company, and we'll also discuss some of the things going on in the news as we always do. But first, let's say hello to Matthias Matthias welcome to crypto and blockchain talk. Thank you so much. I'm happy to be here. Well, I'm happy you are here. It would otherwise be a very one sided conversation. And my name is aviva onop. I am the host of crypto and blockchain talk. So Matthias. I need to know how and why, no, let's not even go there. I first want to know what it was that you were doing before co write even started. I don't want to know about co write yet. I want to know you doing to lead up to this space. Like what was your degree in and what were you doing with your life? Yeah, okay. It's kind of a long story. This is not a video, but if it was, you would have seen my gray hair. So I've been around for a while. Hey, listen, wait, before you go any further. I gotta tell everyone that Matthias looks like the baby of a young Simon Cowell and Thor. He is a very good-looking guy. I think he uses like skin care selections from like the top grade like love. He doesn't have a wrinkle on his face. He's a very handsome man, and I don't even want to hear about your gray hair. So go, tell us about your life. Okay, so yeah, but seriously, I'm a music guy. I'm a music nerd, I would say. I grew up with a lot of music. I love different genres. I love everything from pop to rock to nowadays, even the American hip hop and soul. I was doing a lot of music myself during the 90s, but I realized that that was probably not going to be my profession. So I ended up at a consultant for several years. And then I was lucky. At the year of 2008, I ended up as the commercial director for Universal Music, which is the biggest record label globally. And I ended up the soccer office and that was a very, very interesting time for being a music nerd because it was when the last time the whole music industry totally shifted and revolutionized. It was I was basically hired the same day as Spotify was launching. Meaning the CD was dead and the era of streaming was born. So I spent like 5 years at the university of music and it was a really, really interesting journey where we learned a lot about how the music industry could shift so fast just was a one technology shift. And it was to the mostly to the good because before that, the music industry was going down the drain and everybody's basically was sacked from the industry and nobody believed it. Everybody thought that music nowadays and in the future would be free because it's an MP3 was super easy to copy and it was like on Firebase. And Spotify and the other streaming service changed that model and the revenue started to pour into the industry and we from universal and labeled perspective were a sort of force to come up with great cool new ideas.

"That is smaller, is director of the U. N Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the near East. He joins us from Gaza. Mattias what you see Well, a bit more than two days now. After the ceasefire, there remains a sense of relief. There is growing. I think a sense off worry that this is not it. You know, I've had many colleagues. Palestinian colleagues, that is talk to me about this was round four, implying there will be around five. And and I think the most serious impact and for me the biggest part of what you refer to as humanitarian crisis is the damage on people. Colleague described this to me as an attack on our soul. Another one said. If you think I'm feeling OK, and I'm normal, I'm not. And if anyone tries to tell you, they're normal. Is be skeptical because you just cannot as an adult or a child lived through four was like this and think it's normal. Well, give us some context. This was a people already impoverished because of Israeli and Egyptian blockades to stop the flow of any possible arms to the militant group Hamas, which rules Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. And we know that, for instance, after the 50 day, Warren 2014 international donors pledged 2.7 billion in reconstruction assistance. Critics of Hamas say that they either you know, take those funds for militant means, or they just can't properly govern. What do you think is most needed, And do you trust the governorship there to carry it out. So what is most needed from my perspective is the following number one. The thousands of homeless need to be supported through a transition period until their homes can be rebuilt or repaired. And we will try as one route to support those among them who are right registered refugees with us with a kind of transitional cash for rental arrangement, probably and will then try and help them rebuild. In a self help manner. That's one big need. I think a second big need, and we're really looking into that We have 285,000 Children in our schools 20 off the 60 Children killed where in our schools, so there's huge mental health support needs. So we're trying to organize that for schools, and I really think mental health support cannot be Underestimated and then thirdly, led by the U. N, and we're part of that World Bank and the U A comprehensive damage assessment is being planned, for example of the health infrastructure and on that basis, will then after develop plans and budgets. As to your question on do I trust the people? You know, it's not a question of trust I what I can tell you is that in post 2014 and in my 3.5 years here we we have been able to fully account for the resource is being given to us. I obviously cannot. Claim that for all the aid that comes into Gaza, but the aid we control is used for the right purposes. Was hate to ask this next question, because, as you said, the people there seemed like in an unbearable state on day have been for a while, but then this, you know, incredible bombing time families. Wiped out. But is there any sense that especially with social media in this most recent convulsion of violence in the region? There's such an awareness. Is there any sense that this time maybe some of the larger problems Moving toward some kind of two state solution. Some kind of help for people who have been sort of frozen there, something might happen. You know, there is a hope that it will for sure, you know, And I think one reason for that is that the U. S administration is at least talking to both sides. As you know, the previous one wasn't talking to both sides. So I think the U. S. Has regained some credibility as a broker or mediator, and that gives people some optimism. But there's also a lot of skepticism. I think I mentioned earlier. Quite a few colleagues are referring to this as round four and, you know, 73 years. Also, after as they see it, the Palestine refugees they were kicked out of their land or their forefathers, where there is a growing sense off a solution. Just not being around the corner that will prevent further violence, So it's hope mixed with Healthy, doze off skepticism and realism. Not to smaller director of the U.

About what the golden knights have done in terms of transactions. They did end up making a move before. Monday's trade deadline. The deadline was at noon. And it was about you know close to ten o'clock. We got the reports that the knights were acquiring ford mark from the chicago blackhawks for those that have not seen the news and are not familiar with him as a player. He's twenty eight year old left. Shot wing with ten goals and nine assists in forty one games this season. He joined chicago as a ufa in the off season and before that night's fans may remember him because he played for the dallas stars for four years and was part of the team last year. The beat the nights to go to the stanley cup final. The cost for the knights for this move gave the blackhawks as second and third round. Pick to get an mark and they also got fifth thrown back. It's also sent san jose sharks helping out the nights in this deal. A fifth round pick to retain part of the and mark salary and make the money work in marquette eighty two point two five million cap hit. But he's actually only counting about five hundred sixty thousand dollars against the knights books because chicago retained half a salary than san. Jose retained half of that salary to help him squeeze under as what everyone who's listening to show knows by now is a very tight salary cap for the knights which is why in recent weeks. They've had to play with less than a full complement of players. Dave we've been talking about the trade deadline for weeks on the show projecting predicting what the knights were gonna end up doing. What did you think of this move in this. Basically what you expected out of the knights on monday. Yeah mostly i mean. I don't know if matiz yan markazi exact person or player that i had earmarked is a guy that the knights could go get but i think it was probably going to be something along the lines of this type of move more of secondary scoring depth as opposed to anything really splash. I mean talk about a couple of guys that at least reportedly the nights kind of kicked the tires on. We don't know how serious or you know how close to acquiring a couple of players. The knights came at least one of them talked publicly about you know how the knights were at least a a little bit of a suitor or at least checked in to see if he was available. But i think in the grand scheme of things you know knowing where the salary cap situation was and then this was the other thing too that i think. Killing the kerman really emphasized in. I think i found a little bit. Interesting was his commitment to adding without making any sort of subtraction from the active roster in the gave up a couple draft picks but they didn't have to match salary or moving anybody out to make this work. The only thing that they did was add so in that sense. I mean unless there's something with chemistry or something like that you know with the tar which you wouldn't expect or even like the nights can only get better from this like they didn't get worse because they didn't give away anybody so from that standpoint in terms of the type of move that they made. Yeah i i. I do think this was what i expected. I don't think any was entirely believed. kremlin that. They wouldn't do anything that they would stand at the deadline. They've always made some kind of move. It's almost like they can't help themselves. They can't resist so all things considered and the type of player that he is where he fits on the third line and things like that. Yeah it's it's about ball parking area code for what i thought. They would still quietest trade deadline. Probably the knights of had so far. Obviously the first year they get thomas tires. You mentioned dave and ryan reaves second year. You get mark stone third year at alec martinez a few days before the deadline and then add cousins and of course robin lehner on deadline day. So it's a little bit different to get a guy that as you said is sounds like he will slot in at third line left wing when he starts out. That was coach. Beats board initial thoughts after the deal went down on monday. We're recording this. Actually on wednesday market is expected to join the team today and so we'll see if in fact that is his spot in the lineup. It's interesting fit. He's a guy that can play on both special teams units. He would actually have the be tied for the second. Most power play goals on the nights he has. Four cody. glass also has four. No one else on. The nights has more than that. Except for max pacioretty. He'd be tied for fourth in power. Play points on the nights behind mark stone max battery and shea theodore and then he's also gotten regular penalty kill shift in both dallas and chicago as well so interesting fit he would also have the second most points among the knights bottom. Six right behind alex tuck. Do you like that. Fit their dave of kind of helping out that third line and getting guy mark who has a bit of speed a pairing him with talk and moving tuck also back to his kind of natural right wing and hoping to shore up the third line that way. Yeah i mean. I think i think alex talk for the most part is proven that he can play on his off wing share. I think that was definitely a concern. Maybe the last of years. And i think you know this year. He's looked a little more comfortable. And i do think there's a lot of kind of rotation where those guys you know will start on one wing and just you know in the flow of play and you know on the other wing and a breakout or whatever. It might be so i. Maybe it's just me. I don't i don't make a huge deal out of out of the position changes because i think alex talk looked a little more comfortable on left wing share. Didn't think it was as much of an issue. But i just i think in terms of overall and you know the impact that it can have on the third line you know. Just the upgrade overall. I mean i have to learn a little bit more about your mark in terms of just his game overall. And you know what i've read. And what i've seen and what i've been told sort of. Don't entirely mash. I've i've been told you know. He's a defensive guy until these offensive touched. Everybody seems to think he's got speed. So in terms of pairing him with alex talk on a wing and having two guys that can really fly down the saw the boards and cause problems for defense that way and if so much no sick is the center and continues to play. You know the way that he's played it'll be an interesting I guess interesting to see how they fit together. In sort of what chemistry they developed. Where guys you know. Sort of wanna be on the ice and how that all sorts of had all sort sort of meshes together you never know i mean some guys you can just put together and for whatever reason they have instant chemistry some guys you would think would work together. Well based on style of player analytics. You put them together in. They don't work well so you know you never really know. I think in terms of just know the third line overall in may be creating some kind of identity there. It's been better for the golden knights this year but it's still not entirely fixed than and it still feels like sort of an ongoing issue in if they run into a team like colorado with a very solid third line in a seven game series. Those are the types of things that you know can A series in one.

"The best was when you were younger did go on to you know, early hockey game and you know, Mom or Dad would take you to dunks before or after the game and it would be like, you know, Seven 8 a.m. Every donut rack is full with fresh donuts and bagels muffins and it's like, oh I have everything I could ever want right yet here to pick from it's honest. It's overwhelming this song speaking the right donut in that moment was just too much. They were always fresh always fresh. So what you had on I think with with at home hits a wave bigger question. We talked a little bit about the son Brewing speed is dead. You know should the Bruins be buyers like and and and I think people are like what but when you really think about it, like you look at the division, you look at the situation. Look at the expansion draft em, and you know, is it really worth it? Is this roster worth it to go completely all in on to go balls-to-the-wall long to give up Johnny Beecher a first-round pick a Grizzly technically in the expansion draft. Probably a third asset whatever that might be and that doesn't even encapsulate what it would take to then get a top-six forward which will get you in a little bit odd. Like that would take a lot more. That's a maybe another future first. That's another Prospect like let's say hypothetically because we'll get you Conor Garland in a second credit to you for being on Long Island from like last seat from last offseason when we were like digging for topics everybody brought Conor Garland up and I was like what and now he's legit trade Target, but like is dead. Are you are you going to look back like you mentioned with that call? If you don't want a cop, let's say you're out in the first or second round. Let's say you don't make the playoffs that you don't make the playoffs then it's like what was the point of this whole like you had at home and and Conor.

"A game like that where they really kind of, you know manhandled the the flyers in that game. I think that proper has a lot of people thinking like, wow this team, you know as much as it's maybe a different cast of characters in terms of you know, further down the line up you still got kind of that same veteran cord leading the way they're still a tight-knit group, you know, you should have sent a lot of the same guys ordered here two years ago and I went to the cup it's a whole lot of buying with that whole group as a whole. So I think it's more or less just a fact that it's a maybe reassuring that for all should be the question mark said people had going into the this is still a very very good team still a team that when they're on can absolutely bury you in multiple areas of the game and you know, I think maybe just dead Maybe not like a statement win, but it's just a maybe a reassuring that you know, this seems still in good hands for at least this year in terms of you know, having the possibility of mounting another pretty legitimate cup run in a couple of months. Oh, yeah. No absolutely and you mentioned the defense which I guess we will we will get into now. So Jeremy lausanne leaves the Lake Tahoe game after only I think like thirty four seconds twenty four years of time when I started four seconds those what thirty four seconds I'll never forget but he did leave with an injury. There's been no update issued yet Bruins head off Monday, so we will probably get a better update later Tuesday or maybe Wednesday, but it begs the it puts us forward and I know Bruins fans will cringe when I hear this song be left shot defenseman. You began the year with Jeremy. Lausanne Matt grzelcyk Jacobs moral all on the shelf right now with injuries leaves John Moore and her whole back tonight in in, New Jersey. Place in the in the wake of that now. I don't know how you feel about that. I know you Connor feel about that. I guess I can say I don't know how Burnsville fans feel about that. But I can imagine the question do they need to add a lap top defenseman at the deadline. The answer is very much. Yes, they absolutely do and we knew this going into the season. This was not something that is just popping up on a ruins and you wrote something for bsj this past weekend on why Mattias ekholm is such a great fit. I will give you the floor to explain why Mattias ekholm is a great fit. Just thought I agree with you on pretty much most of these points. Yeah. I mean, I think you look at it even obviously the brand see some depth right now because you know, we could be in a situation where when the Bruins resume play on Thursday if Crews Lake is a barrel on healthy, you know, you could be a situation where you're another body away from a guy like, you know, Nick Woolf for Cooper's a cord jacket Sean getting calls up to be pressed juice. Service like this so not ideal from the government's perspective. But even if this whole left side was completely healthy when you had loads on Grizzly kinds of oral. I still think the proactive move for this team is to still acquire a proven top floor guy just to shore up that defense just turned it as overall security like one..

There's the health risk, which you know, we remember what it was a few years ago in the Bruins played the song is in the playoffs and it was you know, Tommy Crofts and Joe Morrow and those guys like that was that was you know, garlic McEvoy. Yeah. We're trying to give it was, you know, averaging 23 minutes of ice-time mean that's the worst case scenario in terms of injuries. But also you just run the risk of you know, going into the playoffs and it's you know solid as low as on as looked, you know as promising as a moral has been you still running a whole bunch of risk, if you roll those guys out expecting them to kind of, you know, not deal with the bumps along the road with that comes with playing heavy minutes and a playoff setting against tough teams like the capitals or off. No Penguins Flyers. If you get past that, you know, the the lightning, you know, all these teams that are going to you know, bring it to you. So I think would you rather keep this defense which has been great like you can I think you can you can admit that. It's defense has exceeded expectations and they've been very good. We'll also acknowledging and being cognizant of the fact that if you want to go all in this year, you need more stability back there. So I think a guy like at home makes perfect sense of your the Bruins. I mean, he's thirty years old big body which looks like a lot of Bruins fans, right? Just thought you know, he's six four. Yeah 6 for 2:15, but he's not just also like a I wrote that he's not like a guy like maybe Brenden Dillon who the the capitals acquired last year whose, you know, six four big guy, but he's kind of a stay-at-home option. I mean not Combs a skilled defenseman back there. He's one of the best over the last couple of years at generating 5 and 5 offense, which you need like you suck. Which I didn't it's funny. I was reading your column. I didn't realize he was that high up with 515 offense until I read that that

Ah, lot of stuff to get to throughout the show Last week, I told you his last NFL power rankings. I lied to you apologize. We changed our minds. We pulled inaudible. Going a different direction. Final NFL power rankings of year later this hour. Joe Judges Mattias Hell and he's well, he's gonna take it cause he's a you know, giant, said, coach That's what they do. But he's still mad. Isela the disrespect So called directing his His organization's general proximity or so he believes will hit that. Probably this hour, Something finally happened. That I have literally been calling on since I became a radio host at CBS Sports Radio in 2000 and 17. Started that year when we're doing evenings, and that is for the legendary all time great as a player and the force as a supposed Front office guru. You go away. I'm sure you want to promote him up. Whatever you should celebrate Broncos fans, John Elway's no longer in charge of football operations. He will not be the decision maker that is a win. We will talk about why Elway failed. What it means. And it's reminder of one of the most important Fax. In sports. Why you don't combine love and business. That's why you don't hire legends. The deserve it love for someone like Elway blind that organization to his failures. In the front office. And, yes, I'm aware that they want to sue ball under his Under his, uh, tutelage. He was no more responsible for Peyton Manning's excellence and Magic Johnson is for LeBron, so we'll just get to it an hour. We don't talk any MBA. But if we do, we'll get to the Warriors in the Knicks, and how one of those teams is a legit fun story and the others probably an illusion. But it's still kind of fun buyer selling a bunch of other stuff so you don't want to start the show. And we'd love you to call in. If you want to give your perspective, we've got a handful of job openings. Around. The National Football League. And There aren't many of these, as you know, on the face of the earth, and we've got even more gentlemen who would like to be the head coaches of these various teams. So we're going to rank the job openings and go through some of the names and it's interesting when you look at the collection of talent, vying to be the head coach of the Jags, the Jets, the Texans, the Chargers, the Lions and the Falcons. And I'm first blush. Not all of those jobs, scream excellence and excellent opportunity, although beggars can't be choosers, and if you're an ambitious football coach, which is to say you're a football coach in the NFL level. You take the job you can get, but there are several names that are at a minimum. Minimum on the lips of the decision makers of several these franchises and maybe even further along. Some of them are coordinators. And there's a lot of coordinators who have multiple interviews scheduled this point. Top name on the list, and I said this yesterday. I'm not gonna do it for five minutes and I'll say it again. The top name on the list should be Eric the enemy. Offensive coordinator of the Chiefs. But the enemies Coaching tree from which he will emerge. The Andy Reid go gentry. Coaching tree that produced Doug Peterson. Eagle's head coach, She doesn't know how to respect the game, Joe Judge tells us We're just to win since Nick Foles left history tells us Matt Nagy came off that coaching tree. It just suggests there's no sure thing. There's no guarantee Eric, the enemy is going to be good at his job when he gets a head coaching job. Which means the same is true for every other guy on this list is true for Joe Brady, the Panthers all offensive coordinator. It's true for Brian Table. The Bills offensive coordinator whose story I read is really interesting because He could have come off that Patriots coaching tree in a real way. Had he not felt like he didn't get the respect in the opportunity he deserved. Underbelly, Jack. I like that kind of fire. Calls defensive coordinator the Niners.

I Guess It's Time to Move?

"I gave everything away. One friend took my Ottoman another took my copy of the collected works of Joe Brainard. And unloaded it all in handoffs in the park where I'd played the object between us, and then my friend would take it in their arms. My possessions became the conduit for our intimacy because I couldn't hug them goodbye and I couldn't throw a party. I was moving during Cova D-. It felt like a bonkers idea to move right now. Although it seems like a lot of people are doing it. In this time of enforced stillness, there is so much motion. I moved I moved I moved. Yeah. I did lose during covid from Washington DC. To New Orleans across the country from. And everything I've ever known to the House of my dreams to my parents House Boston to Aspen from Florida to Wisconsin from the area to a big college town in the Midwest I bought a house and moved into an during the pandemic. The. Best part of it was the houses on corona drive, but it's also just been strange per. Hard, to get furniture. Pretty alone. And pretty trapped for me. It's meant. Taking a lot of walks and bike rides often with no particular destination mine, it's been it's very difficult to meet new people and hard to connect to people. I, would see people that I didn't know and wonder what it was like to sort of know those people know the people of this place very much expecting to transform into some. What do we all have that fantasy as moving into a city where no one knows we are becoming the best version of ourselves and that's really not happening right now. The first night the taxi drop me off at my apartment I may as well have been in Toronto or Chicago. The summer heat was homogenising and the museums and theaters and restaurants that had meant New York to me were shuttered. There was nowhere to go beyond the strange new building. I called home. What was this city just beyond the confines of my apartment? I WANNA? Say the thing that really makes a city is the people. But that's the element that really broke my heart. I text a friend like Hey I'm in Brooklyn do you want to hang out? And then it turned out so many of them were moving away. So many of them. Yes. So what the hell away you live included in this mass exodus is my new CO worker at the cut Madeleine. I. I just sort of decided to leave. We're sitting on Mattie stoop in Brooklyn but this week. Mattie is moving to Austin Texas. I knew a couple of people in Austin it sounded really cool. I've never been but I never have been. But. I was like, why not seems cool. I could never take a risk like this. I feel like I was only able to move to New York because I'm from here and my family is still here I had a job here and I planned it all out although Mattias still working for the cut but she can just log onto slack from wherever I think it's cool to be like. To just start a new life and be like, what is it GonNa be like, who am I going to know? Where am I going to go? What's IT GONNA look like. Those uncertainties are very exciting to me. I mean, yeah I definitely felt that. Moving to my new city felt like having crush. But. It was kind of the crash where you don't really know someone and then suddenly you're imagining what your grandkids will look like. Definitely have an image of myself. An outdoorsy person. I'm going to have a car for the first time in my life, which is huge. So I'm like just constantly picturing myself driving around. It's like I can be a new person like you know in this new place that can be whoever I want to be. Although I've heard it said that everywhere you go. There you are. I don't really know how much one can actually change in a new place especially now. Like when I first moved here in the summer I kinda did all the same things? I. Did back when I lived in Oakland I, biked around ad in the park I took a covert test I cooked my dinners at home. I made this podcast in the closet. You can't completely escape your old self in some ways. It's just you in a different room, the of just like logging on. To slack and having everything be exactly the same when I'm in a new city in a new apartment like have gone through this huge change it's just gonNa be so weird.

China's Coronavirus Is Spreading. But How?

China's Coronavirus Is Spreading. But How?

"Deadly new virus has cropped up in China the dramatic surge in cases of a deadly mystery virus. It's something called a corona virus. The pneumonia like illness originated in central. Insult China there are actually many types of corona viruses. This one causes fever dry. Cough difficulty breathing. Diarrhea and body aches the the number of infected exploded over the weekend. Hundreds of people have been infected Chinese officials taking every precaution to contain the virus and as of Thursday afternoon. We're recording this workers outside of the local hospital in bio suits. Seventeen people have died or good afternoon governor. Jay inslee governor of the state of Washington on top up of all of that. We're here to give a brief into the public regarding the novel. rotavirus on Tuesday officials announced. It's shown up here in the United States. Patient is a man in his thirties. He is in the hospital here behind me and then later in the week. Chinese authorities closed off the city of Wuhan at the center of the outbreak. Nick wants eleven. Million people are being told they can't leave and more. Chinese cities have followed suit. Such a massive operation to restrict people moving on spreading. The disease is unprecedented. So this episode. We'll tell you what officials are saying about the origins of the virus and what we know about the likelihood that it will continue to spread Brett. I'm Mattioli and you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. So we're talking corona virus and here to help us do that is NPR. Reporter Jason Bogin who covers global health and development. Hey Jason Hey Mattia so this thing cropped up about a month ago and this past week China announced more cases and the number of countries where it's been found outside of China continues to grow. Oh and one big thing. We haven't mentioned yet. Is that this weekend. Is the busiest holiday travel season in China. One of the largest travel seasons in the world. Yeah it's like doc Thanksgiving and fourth of July all combined into one. Hundreds of millions of people typically travel for the Lunar New Year which is January twenty fifth man. Ah brings up something about virus. Does it spread easily amongst people who are on trains. We don't exactly know the Chinese government has said it appears to be respiratory Tori. But they haven't been able to confirm that that is exactly the route of transmission at the moment and how communicable is how likely it is if people are sitting next next which other on buses and planes and trains that it could spread right. Okay so let's back up and explain what we do know. Starting with where it started the city city of Wuhan in central China yet so all indications are pointing to this wholesale meat market in Wuhan. It's a place where they have live. Animals that are slaughtered. There's also fish that are sold there as well as meet and the idea is that the corona virus and seems to be what have hap has happened jumped from one of fold animals in the market over to humans. And at this point we don't know exactly what animal that is. We don't as one of the big questions that still out there. If you remember SARS that big outbreak started in two thousand two was really big in two thousand and three. It's called Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome now is also corona virus. Chris and it spread all over the world. Almost eight hundred people were killed before eventually stamped out and health officials in China say that this current virus doesn't look his deadliest that but it's still really serious for SARS. It was these palm. Civic cats that were being sold in AL markets in China and once that was identified identified then the Chinese government banned the sale of civic cats. That's Matthew Freeman urologist at the University of Maryland. School of Medicine Right. Okay so I wanNA talk a little bit about how a virus like this can jump from animal to human because it's not often explained super clearly. Yeah so a key. Part of that jump is when a virus mutates and and when people talk about mutations and viruses. What they're talking about is something that actually happens? Naturally when a virus replicates right so viruses loved to make lots of little copies of themselves elves and when they do they can make little mistakes during that and knows can change who or what the virus can infect. That's right and Matthew Freeman that Corologis. He thinks that SARS actually started out in bats and it mutated jumped over two those civic cats and then eventually got into people all and here's how he described it as these viruses replicate in these in bats day mutate a bit and if the wrong bat and the wrong other animal become in contact potentially usually when they're caught in the wild whether they're brought onto farms than it can jump into that species and often times. What we found is that the virus needs a little bit more mutational events to happen where can replicate in this intermediate animal before it can jump into people so in the case of SARS it started in bats takes a little bit jumps into cats mutates more jumps into humans right and there are other types of corona viruses that exist in birds in rodents are in camels. But in this case it's proving difficult to figure out what the exact animal source is this corona virus right which brings us back to that market in and Wuhan where they think it all started yet. We spoke to this Guy Kevin Olive oil. WHO's the VP research at the public health? Nonprofit it's called ECO health alliance as been to a lot of markets like this one in in Southeast Asia and he said they can have a wide variety of animals some of them while domestic and it creates a kind of melting pot. Where it's possible for these viruses to jump between species when the animals are alive in the market? They're stressed out. There's a lot of contact with feces and saliva and in terms of butchering the animals. With blood you know. It's pretty chaotic. It's not ed clean as you would think and There's a lot of contact with animals and animal fluids and body parts and so you can imagine in that Type of environment. Yeah it's really hard to zero in on one particular animal as a source You know in this instance. There's some question about how careful the Chinese government has been among in dealing with this way. Once they found out that there was this big problem they went in and cleaned everything. Up in some of the researchers are a little bit Upset set that a lot of potentially useful evidence got destroyed in this effort to just clean up this market right. They kind of reacted quickly and now makes it harder to trace that. Yes now the scientist just because they did that clean up. The sizes are playing catch up there sampling animals and other markets. Trying to see if they have the virus and in the meantime there could potentially still be animals most spreading this type of virus in other markets in China right and then of course beyond that they're saying it's now spreading not just from animals to humans but from one human human to another. Do we have any other clues about that. Human to human spread. That's happening. This is one of the big questions that still out there. What is the human to human spread doesn't have have to be really close? Contact is spreading through the air. We talk to this epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and tropical medicine. David Heymann. He says one clue is that there seems to be many clusters of infected people who all belong to the same family and they've had intense contact with an infected person it. It doesn't seem that the current virus spreads very easily face to face with a cough or a sneeze but even said we still don't know what sheriff the infections happen through. These family. Clusters this case in Washington state. That patient says he didn't visit any of these markets. He doesn't recall coming into contact with anyone who was was sick rain and also brings up another thing. That's kind of concerning which is that at least fifteen. Healthcare workers in the city of Wuhan a reportedly among people who've been inspected and that's always an evil omen within emerging infection because health workers. See a disease may think it's a common pneumonia. They're not as careful. They should be in washing their hands or in patient care and as a result they then get infected and then it spreads within the hospital or can spread to their families and then into the community so so hell in the concern. Is that those workers who may not know that they're actually infected with the virus and feel healthy actually are this phenomenon known as super spreaders people who end up actually infecting a lot of other people. And we've seen this in the SARS outbreak there. There were some super spreaders. There are some key people who ended up spreading the virus to a lot of other people and in that really contributed to the spread of SARS globally. So the question is are there super spreaders with this virus. We don't really know that yet. Gotcha and in the meantime when the CDC announced it confirmed that there's that American patient it also so announced screening at certain airports here in the states right and as we talked about airports We should mention screenings were implemented during the SARS outbreak. They didn't have much of an impact on containing SARS that said the. CDC screening is happening now at airports in La San Francisco New York Atlanta Atlanta Chicago and basically passengers off a plane with a fever or they seem to have cold like symptoms. They're going to be taken aside for health screening testing now You know even the best case that's GonNa take our Z.. Samples getting sent back to the CDC in Atlanta. So if you're flying for me you're going to be routed into one of these airports where they're are able to check you and see if you're showing signs of having this disease. Gotcha okay so Jason. Yeah this is obviously getting a lot of attention get right now now what our public health officials and journalists like yourself the most worried about look the the worst case scenario is an airborne flu that spreads rapidly around the world has maybe a long incubation period. gets out there and then kills lots of people. Yeah that's not really what we're seeing at the moment went But it is still concerning because you are getting spread that we don't know exactly how it's happening so that's what's most concerning installment that we don't know how it's spreading and we don't no the underlying number of people who've been infected or how long that incubation period which could mean we've got a whole slew of them coming down the fire shirt okay Jason Boban update you're welcome will link to NPR's reporting on corona virus in the notes of this episode which was produced by Brett. bachman edited by Andrea Andrea.

Tips for Growing Amaryllis

"Insider insider information segment. Today we're going to talk about something that I have actually had real problems with in the past so I'm hoping is going to teach me everything I need to know and Mattias. You've got this beautiful Amaryllis Bulb. How do you keep it up right because Gosh darn it? Those flowers can be heavy. And then how do you keep it alive live after the holidays so that you can enjoy it year after year. And I've been able to sometimes really enjoy the emeralds during the holiday season. But I'll I'll be darned if I have ever been able to successfully over summer one and have it come back for me okay. Well let's talk a little about Amaryllis first of all those flowers these are huge which means they are very heavy. Yes and anybody who has grown any number of Amarillo has the experience of leaving the house in the morning and coming back in the afternoon to find the entire stem has just fallen over and broken off. The flour is too heavy first of all if that does happen to you make a fresh cut on the bottom of the stem and put it in a vase of water because Amaryllis actually are very long lasting cut flowers you know like a tulip is it doesn't have to be attached to the bulb in order to grace your home so don't don't be afraid to put any broken stem in some water but the second thing to do is if you've got an emerald now for instance that is is starting to bud up first of all if the plant is in a plastic pot. Just slip that plastic pot inside of a clay pot. That's it's going to be heavier so that the pot itself has some weight and we'll tip over as he's that's right and then next. You can put a slim sticky there. A bamboo support that you buy at the Garden Center or Ellen. One thing that I keep on hand for such things this is in the summertime. Many stores Smith Sell Long sticks that are meant for roasting marshmallows. They're like three foot sticks. You can buy them in cooking stores. You can buy them in like wooden stick or is this like a metal skewer. There wouldn there. Would you could use a long metal skewer but if you have those on hand they make great plant supports and you just stick that in the pot with the Amaryllis Bob close close to the ball but not of course through the bulb. Yeah don't put it so close that it's GonNa Pierced the bulb good point good right and then you tie a pretty ribbon but to support that Amaryllis stem and so it looks decorative and yet it holds the plant the big heavy flower upright and prevents it from breaking off. We'll here's another or here's another way to handle that heavy stem and that is if you happen. You too have a large clear glass vase. That is wide enough to put the whole pot down into the vase You can lower the pot into the clear glass face you still see the pot you see the plant kind of coming up right. Yeah but then both the leaves and the stem are celebrated. Yeah yeah inside the clear glass vase and it's got a very interesting look to it so you have to have a very large vase for the right size face but you know clear. Glass is not that expensive and frequently you can find one that it is a good eight inches in diameter and at least a foot and a half or two feet tall and that's a perfect way to display it as well as supported at at the same time I would check goodwill salvation army. I get lots of great glassware and really interesting stuff at those stores. I agree okay. So you've told us. Now how to keep that flower upright and beautifully displayed. What do I do in? The Flower has passed. And well you first of all cut off the flower stem wants wants to flowers wilted and you cut off the flower stem all right but then you put that plan. If you've got it in a clear glass face you take it out of the vase at that point point you put it in sunny window and you will keep that plant watered regularly but not swampy swampy wet because those bulbs are prone to rotting if you keep the soil constantly WanNa let it Wa- a dry Out a little bit in between watering. How much is that? How do you use the old finger tests to see the finger test finger and eyesight? I look at it if it looks damp but then I feel it if it feels damn then. You don't water. That Morales Bulb okay. But if you see that the PLA the soil is looking a little dry it's pulling away from the edges is of the pot and it's spilling dry then you water it. Well you never let pot sit in a saucerful of water if the water goes into the saucer asser wait a little while and then whatever isn't absorbed empty out and you let that plant grow in the sunny window lead it produce all those long long green leaves you know let it do whatever it's doing all in its own. Those green leaves are the solar collectors. They are building up energy in in that bulb for next year. And you're wait until all danger of frost has happened in your area and then you will put some time. Release leased fertilizer on the soil of that plant. And put it out for summer

Gotham Awards: 'Marriage Story,' 'The Farewell,' 'Uncut Gems' Lead Nominations

"Okay Amanda the Gotham awards what do you know about the Gospel awards they are New York based yes is Gotham is a stand in for New York and uh-huh well done thank you and they are an indie film awards and they always have the ceremony pretty early in the season and their speed teaches are often really vibrant and kind of make some noise that people are usually recapping them are doing videos of the acceptance speeches that's right the nominations are usually driven by journalists and critics whereas the awards themselves are usually chosen by people in the New York Film Community this year's collection of films is sure thing and I think it highlights the New York versus La Aspect of this award show I would say that this is a very good collection of films but not terribly represented of of where Oscar is going to be going this year so let's just mentioned a couple of the categories we can talk about what we see and if any of this really ultimately matters to the big race that we talk about on the show all the time so for best feature Lulu longs farewell The safdie brothers uncut gems trae rituals waves Noah Baumbach marriage story and Lawrence Ghaffari as hustlers now as a human man these are five of my favorite movies of the year you truly love to see you love to see it now Ah I think this list has been somewhat criticized for being the eight twenty four awards share and also Noah Baumbach a former eight hundred four filmmaker himself so there's a lot of lineage there but I don't necessarily I mean I think marriage story is pretty much a lock for best picture and you've got a chance to see it over the weekend so that we may be we can t some of that conversation talk about it but yes these other films I think the farewells probably the one that has been tabbed to have the best chance at best picture but do you see a world in which I guess these early awards shows do more than just you know sort of celebrate the films that we expect to not be recognized come Globes and an Oscar season or or do you think that this is just a forebear to what's coming I think this is probably people sharing their passions for the most part and doesn't shift a lot the only notable storyline in the future category for me as Hustler's being here because that means that people really are taking it seriously as a a capital f film in addition to a great kind unexpected box office hit featuring Jennifer Lopez sue and we talked about that a little bit of the time of Jennifer Lopez seems like an Oscar contender people take it seriously it seemed like the answer to that is yes in some ways yes but on the other hand Jennifer Lopez not nominated for Gotham you know just kind of fascinating what are you going to do with you ran does in the film community I don't know it is people expressing themselves yeah I mean there's a lot of very admirable choices kind of up and down we don't have to run through every single category here I think one thing I like about the Gotham is is that it does a lot of awards that I really wish the Oscars would do for example they have the Bingham Ray breakthrough director award and the nominees here are kind of interesting collection of people couple of films I haven't even seen Lord Clermont on Air am I pronouncing that correctly thank you can Jones's here we had him on the show earlier this year Joe Talbot from the last Bachman in San Francisco also on the show Olivia Wilde this year for book smart and films for burning came which is a film I haven't even seen yet which is yeah been released so that this is sort of like in the spirit of the indie spirits meets the Oscars meets the New York film critics are I tend to think of this award show and I think the award selves our health quite early at the end of this year as opposed to early next year and you'll be able to stream them live on the Internet and you'll get to see some of those acceptance speeches that talking about but it does feel a little bit of a lucky to be here kind of award Andre Holland you're nominated for high flying bird and be pretty surprised Andre Holmes nominated for best actor Best Actress Likewise Mary Kay Place for Diana Elisabeth Moss for her smell these are performances that will be on craigslist MHM maybe on your lists I haven't seen her smile yet I need to do that I will do that before the end of the year I'm saying it in public so that will actually happen and probably how do you feel about being in this moment this period of award season where we're like right at the were at the gates worth the Don excited I think you and I kind of went through a marathon in the last week and so we have seen most everything which is great there are a few outstanding films talk about and there are a few on my list that I haven't seen because they were at festivals and haven't really been screening for critics yet but we've seen a majority of things and I definitely just had a week where I just saw elise and I was like wow cinema I was very moved by a lot of films that I saw and so in that sense I feel hopeful and excited and you're like movies are great we have all the movies and then I started trying to make my Oscar predictions and started thinking about all of the politics and like reading from what Academy voters I had to say and it creeping sense of dread also and anger and resentment started creeping in so I would say it's a complex emotional time for me personally how are you feeling I have the same exact feeling as you and it's for that reason that we have decided at the back half of this show to make predictions make bold reckless quite likely very stupid predict predictions because as you said we've seen almost everything last week you and I got a chance to see the Irishman let me just tell you the Irishman is good. You should see the Irishman you had a chance to see marriage three yes we had a chance to see knives out which I don't think we'll be a part of the awards conversation but which was fantastic it lived up to my hopes and dreams have been screaming about it on a podcast for two months so those to receive we see something else we saw little women little women of course of course little women so all of these movies have now been put in front of us let here's here's a very short list of the movies that neither of us have seen thus more because we've done a pretty good job of doing our homework to this moment but so far we still haven't seen nineteen seventeen seventy four one film we haven't ritual Clint Eastwood's portrait of the man who was accused of the Atlanta Olympics bombing we haven't seen cats it's fine that you put this on this sliced by Mattia cats cats come in cat season is nearly upon us we haven't seen dark waters which I think is going to start screening this week we've not seen star wars episode nine the rise of Skywalker uh-huh I did read a bit of box office prognostication about episode nine today it was kind of kind of kind of grim interesting it was like this will is on track to be the lowest grossing of the sued thus far on its opening weekend maybe it's because everybody knows what's GonNa Happen I read some fan fiction or not some fan fiction no like can we just used to lead them into it yeah I read some fan fiction you know what I read some predictions based on nothing speculation is what I read about Star Wars that was essentially conviction and I got really upset about it I told you about this already we had this conversation with no let's not do that yeah but I don't know it people I it seems like people are interested in what happens I'm interested in what happens was the was it that ray is a rookie was it no it's Ray in Cairo and fuck just like the weight again pure speculation but let me go on record saying I do not want this as the really casual star wars fan who does can't remember the title of Episode Nine Not for me it's not what you want the only other movie I can think of that we haven't seen that is going to be competing this year barring maybe you're frozen to in the atom akara categories clemency which is Alfred movie that premiered at Sundance and has gotten reviews and I it was pointed out to me that there to death row movies this year with just mercy and clemency which is kind of interesting but that's only six movies between the two of US we've done a nice job hopefully we'll have a peaceful December probably not as we go through all of our takes which of these sixty think is most likely to to mess up the the narrative is we're going to break down later in the show I have on the document that I made I have one thousand nine hundred seventeen written several different times with like twenty question marks it was I just I don't know what to do with it. It is obviously a world war one epic with really athletic filmmaker gang directed by Salmon News which is Oscar Bait shot by Roger Deakins which is how you know it really is and they haven't they're releasing the behind the scenes rich of him just like running and trenches they're really leaning into we worked really hard to make us you know and it's a very showy style of directing yes their narrative is the effort yes which is an interesting thing we hear a different version of that with someone like Joaquin Phoenix and his performance in the joker we heard all about how he lost fifty pounds and he contorted his body and he I mean this physical transformation this is the full-scale movie version right of what sacrifices were made to achieve something yes and it's so funny because the the movie is not out for still another three months but I think that's really smart and the reason I have twenty question marks is because is it too late in the Oscar season to kind of really breakthrough because the people haven't seen it and the Oscars season is like a full months earlier this year and then was your so we're in a really crunched situation I think we have learned time and time again that it is harder the later you get in the season more crowded it is it's harder to get people invested in your movie you've just created a wonderful segue for our next segment let's go to stock stock down if it goes bust you can make ten to one twenty

First I Met My Children, Then My Girlfriend... They're Related.

"Didn't meet my girlfriend Jessica until twelve years years after our daughter Alice was born. Let me explain nearly twenty five years ago. I returned from a year of teaching English abroad moved in with my mother and Dan lacking prospects began driving a cab one day I saw newspaper ad seeking healthy men eighteen to thirty five to participate in a seaman donation program program. Donors is the standard industry word yet. Virtually all of us are paid forty dollars. A pop is what I received in Nineteen ninety-four I applied to sell my sperm and sold twice weekly for a year at the time I was in a long distance relationship so the seemed like a good outlet when I told my mother other she presciently wondered aloud. If this was the only way she was going to have grandchildren today sperm buyers view detailed profiles for potential vendors whereas I wasn't asked to provide much beyond college major hobbies and Family Health History Jessica and her partner at the time chose me primarily because I was a the writer and musician after a year of selling my sperm I went back to giving it away and largely forgot about the whole thing occasionally the subject objective whether I had children would come up and make a joke about probably having a bunch I had signed a nondisclosure waiver in assumed there would never be away from my progeny in me to find nine one another then the Internet happened in the early two thousands. I searched online for a way to find my offspring and discovered the donor sibling registry. I didn't see any leads there and never got around to checking back. I had looked way too early my project. He began to use the site to find each each other when they became teenagers. In the twenty tens a couple of years ago began seeing ads for twenty three and me a service that analyzes your saliva spit in a test tube and mail it off for analysis and provides you with information about ancestry health and DNA gives the opportunity was obvious but I I assumed the odds of finding my children were low. I procrastinated for months before curiosity and urged to know them made me order a kit mm-hmm. I got my results back and boom. I had a son Bryce. His full name was unusual enough that I- easily googled him and the picture churn resembled me enough that I felt confident this senior geography major was mine mine guessing he had been notified of my existence by twenty three and me. I mold for a week before finally putting fingers to keyboard dear bryce. I wrote I recently joined twenty three and me and found you listed as my son son so I believe myself to be your biological father. I hope may existence isn't a shock and wonder whether you joined in the hopes of connecting with me. My letter letter continued awkwardly from they're giving him a brief sketch of my life. Bryce replied almost instantly dad. I cannot express how excited I am to be hearing ring from you. I did join twenty three and me hoping that you would have already done so and was upset to see you. Hadn't this is amazing though and I'm so happy I'm one of six of of your children that I'm aware of and in contact with I'm twenty years old and live on Long Island but I'm studying in upstate New York. Dad I was briefly concerned. That bryce might have some fatherly expectations of being show up on my doorstep but my worries were unfounded. It's it's a brave new world and we're all struggling with the terminology more important six children yikes. I did some Napkin. Math based on the number of samples provided the odds of conception and estimated that I may have as many as sixty seven children bryce connected me with Madeline nineteen upon viewing her facebook page. I had my first parental thought ever. My daughter should put some more clothes on. I may be biased but I found my children to to be ridiculously attractive. I felt a sudden need to share their photos with all the ex girlfriends who chose not to marry procreate with me a few months later a new. DNA relative appeared on twenty three and me Alice age eleven her mother. Jessica wrote me a note. She and her performer partner had each given birth to one daughter conceived with my spur. They broke up years ago but had been raising both girls together until recently. When the other mother moved away away with the daughter she'd given birth to Justin I began to chat online. She knew a lot about buying sperm and self impregnating which was fascinating for meat alert as it turns out. It was more difficult than my role masturbating in Newark. She also no longer identified as lesbian in and was dating a man who incredibly had my same first and middle names Aaron David with a similar mono-syllabic last name. Had there been a mix up at the bureau. Eero boyfriends was either one who was supposed to be dating her. My children and I exchanged written biographies. Braces showed me how little I know of a young adult culture and reminded me that wants twenties are difficult to decade. matty's revealed a keen understanding of her upbringing in the parts of it. She would like to break week from but it was alice's entitled a series of Awkward Events separated by snacks that floored me her biography. A fee was a hodgepodge of lists and memories written under duress mom right or death favorite color black like my soul all favorite holiday Halloween because candy and murder. She liked Alfred Hitchcock films. Basically she wrote. I'm an angsty exte- teen in a child's body. This kid's eleven a plan developed for Bryce and Matty to come to Seattle for a couple of weeks in in the summer. Jess and Alison lived a few hours south and would drive up. I figured meeting my children was going to be the closest thing I ever have to a wedding. So I decided to host host a party I had told my news to a few people but most learned of it from the meet my kids party facebook invitation featuring photos of Bryce Mattie and Alice Alice the shock value was high genetics. Good luck or force of circumstance. I loved my children right away. They haven't uncanny any aura of Minas. Bryce is shy but sharp and obsessed with memes in a way I might have been had. I grown up gency. Alice has little use for adults colts as I still don't Mattie especially has my sense of humor and is locking gazes with her my brain explode but then we laugh at the party we played a nature versus nurture question and answer game and discovered we were all quite liberal and that none of us believed in God awed none of them however sleeps with a pillow between their knees as I have long done the first time Justin I found ourselves alone. We hugged at length in a way entirely inappropriate for people who had just met just says I have mannerisms that remind her of both her daughters and thus felt instantly comfortable with me aw whether we were pawns of fate or unwitting participants in a Chromosomal e arranged marriage Jessica quickly bonded. I deployed my bureau of boyfriends mix up line to a grudging but sweet reception during the vacation she and I easily fell into the mom and dad role for Bryce Mattie and Alice Alice. We soon had jokes and tease each other about our foibles just like any family. I even gave Bryce and Mattia lecture about smoking at the end of the visit. Bryce somehow managed to get jess analysis kicked out of the House. They were renting by climbing onto the roof to retrieve toy so I invited them to stay with me. Meanwhile they figured things out. What just soon figured out was that she wanted to keep staying with me. Alice roller is as if she'd been tricked into a traditional family arrangement while twenty-three in me is not generally considered a dating site Justin. I are grateful to the technology that has made our backward formed relationship relationship possible. We have a lot of questions about love and genetics and whether we would have felt this connection had we met in a more conventional way. Our Bond has survived live the how cool is this face. We still enjoy cyber monitoring my other progeny and speculating about how many more me emerge I'm up to ten now. I've had some contact act with the new ones mothers but haven't made plans to meet yet. Mattie liked the west coast and us and recently moved into our place. We're hoping to lure bryce back to

"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. Young people in the South Pacific are leading the fight against global warming UN secretary General Antonio Gutierrez said on Monday as he continued to spotlight. The issue ahead of the climate action summit that he's convened in September in New York speaking in New Zealand, two young Maoris and people of the Pacific islands mister Gutierrez to express his gratitude to them for highlighting the importance of limiting global temperature increase to no more than one point five degrees. Centigrade above preindustrial levels by the end of the century. The UN chief also recognized the important role played by generation zero a New Zealand based youth led organization that provides solutions to cutting carbon pollution through smarter transport and independence from fossil fuels mister Gutierrez insisted that three steps would make a major difference to addressing climate change a carbon tax as opposed to a salary Levy ending fossil fuel subsidies and stopping the construction of new coal plants by twenty twenty. In a related development. Indigenous Australians are to ask a you and human rights committee to investigate its claim that the government is doing too little to limit climate change. According to reports Torres Strait islanders in the north of the country say that global warming is a threat to this viral. Thanks to rising seas tidal surges and coastal erosion, they maintained that the lack of action by the authorities is a threat to the human rights as part of their claim. The group is calling for the UN panel, which is one of ten human rights committees that meet regularly throughout the year in Geneva too cool for Austrailia to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions. An attack by gunmen on H urchin Burkina Faso that left six people dead, reportedly, including a priest has prompted widespread condemnation from senior u n officials including secretary General Antonio, Gutierrez, according to media at the attack took place in the town of Dablo situated in a region that has seen a spike in violence in recent months. The church was burned to the ground along with other buildings include. Ding a health center.

Violence is spreading in Mali and Niger as well as became a faster and risks spilling over into other west African countries this has led to a fivefold rise in the displacement of the local population in the last twelve months who have seen more than three hundred and thirty thousand people leave their homes in addition to one hundred thousand refugees, and finally Gaza is a place. That's collapsing socially amid growing and serious humanitarian needs that are making an escalation of conflict there more likely at any time. That's the message from unra the UN relief and Works Agency which settled Monday that the.

Three people separately from each other talk to me about noticing increasing drug abuse, increasing suicide attempts and prostitution, and they put this down to the places. Collapsing. Socially in socio, economic terms and one can see it. And of course in a background against a background like that. Again, esscalation is possible at any time.

Brookfield to buy most of Oaktree to build juggernaut to rival Blackstone

"Brookefield agreeing to buy a majority stake in Howard Marx's oak tree again to very well. No names Gillian tan senior reporter for Bloomberg. She has been all over this knows this space better than anyone. So Jillian as you guys have unpacked this deal. What really jumps out to you. I was lucky enough to speak to Howard marks. And Bruce flat this morning, the CEOs of fulfilled and oaktree one key point that jumped out was that the driver behind this transaction is an ability to serve clients. So if you think of L pays for those who want familiar sovereign wealth funds, pension funds endowments, they're looking to park money, billions of dollars massive checks with fuel manages. So if you step back and think what does that mean people looking to put five ten maybe fifteen twenty billion with fuel manages, folks. Like Brookefield sat back they realized they didn't have the capability until now to be able to meet some of the mandates. Bruce, flat told us we have difficulty meeting the street terms of some of these mandates and very few firms in the world would be able to do that. And the combination should be quite powerful. If you think broadly, really only black started, or maybe even black rook, maybe those would be among the groups able to provide an all service one stop shop. This combination is really sort of changed the game. Yeah. I mean, it is amazing. I'm so glad you brought up those other names because up until this point you we've been in this mode where and you've written a lot about this Blackstone has essentially been putting a lot as fates between itself. And everyone else Brookefield has always been there for them as a real estate competitor. But now this really is you say changes the game. Yeah. Absolutely. So Brookfield recognized that it didn't have a distrust credit capability trade. That's been it's bread and butter for years. And interestingly enough, we go to hold from memory that how it sent to invest is saying that they would only ever do a deal with someone where they were able to maintain autonomy and that such a deal they thought to be quite hard to find he wrote that in two thousand and two seventeen years later, he's found a by that fits so tell us more about if you can't talking to them and sort of the vibe that you got from these two guys because again, these are two very powerful personalities. In a powerful personalities. I should Bruce latte. Not the most powerful personality. He's so understated in a lot of ways did you glean from that conversation? Yes. I gleaned one interesting thing that Brookville Mattia perch up Taiba, we're trying to get a little bit more information about how it actually came together. The other thing that they both reiterated is that there is very little overlap in their businesses. They don't expect to be competing on deals. They think it's purely complementary. I think that was one word that they reiterated again, and again, so I guess they're they're broad cell is that they don't expect to be cross selling too much between investors that they already have because they already have relationships with so many of the biggest investors, but it's more being able to provide a one stop shop solution to these groups. The other interesting thing rewrite today about these regional men and another Bruce Bruce cash is that all three of billionaires. And now they're all end up one central roof. So I'm curious how Thomas has Howard marks Romy. So interestingly super tournaments, they're running all the businesses. As is nothing's changing. No, branding, all the funds all the fund heads. Everyone. Just stays as is. It's just a case of a big client who comes in. And we say, well, we can offer you this real estate Brookfield and whatever else we can offer you distress debt. Right. And that's the whole idea. Exactly. So one example how it provided? He now co this morning. He said an LP will hire an investment manager and say, we're interested in these eleven strategies, he's X billion please put the money to work, and it helps to have a broad menu. So how'd previously didn't have big real estate big infrastructure? Right. So do they have to do? They have to add anything else is there. Another acquisition may be coming. The acid offering for these two. I think not I think they're all set. One other thing we we pushed out another story recently this afternoon that just shows that more deals may occur in the industry as sort of Brookfield at our trees now much smaller rivals KKR, Kyle upholster Aries. Maybe thing we need to do something bright because all those stocks moved up in the aftermath of this. It's so fascinating. This story is far from over and really, Jillian as you very rightly point out in his you point out in several stories mentioned on the terminal all among the most read is a game changer in the alternative asset business, really in the broader investment businesses. Well, Brookefield and oak tree getting together. Always get to catch up with you here where we're seeing steals happening where everybody else kind of wakes up all of a sudden, whether it's the financial industry or other industries, we're seeing a lot of
