"I don't know about you but my family loves this time of year for us. It's really all about the food we gather at my grandma's house on six nations for a potluck style christmas eve dinner and every year. We have seafood. Uncle dave brings salmon drenched in maple syrup. My dad make seafood chowder. My cousin allen brings oysters and whoever is holding the venison pepperoni from this past years. Hunt fingers crossed brings a lot because it disappears quickly. We drink way too much. T eat way too much food and make way too much fun of each other. That is our tradition. And i'm going to miss it this year. I guess we'll just have to share a cup of tea and make fun of each other over zoom while aida shrimping alone today on the show how indigenous folks are celebrating family traditions and making meaningful connections in all kinds of innovative ways off the wall verse. They got off three walls. That's the sound of a carnival at women kong nursing home staff at the long term care facility in Mccown first nations are finding creative ways to lift the spirits of its elders. During the coronavirus pandemic the nursing home recently went viral online after posting photos of residents deer hunting with nerf guns. Cbs's gonna see. Oh dear is here to tell us more about the creative ways. The staff is keeping spirits up during these challenging times. Welcome to the show going to see you. Thanks for having me okay. So my first question is nerf guns. Yes so each week staff Akon nursing homes drives have a full calendar activities for its residents were primarily first nations for manitou island. One of those recent activities was deer hunting but not actual deer hunting stops. Set up a mini forest of christmas trees dressed up endear costumes and gave the residents some nerf guns photos as you can imagine went viral on facebook so they come up with this idea. One of the residents that he was experiencing hunting fever so the staff wanted to come up with a solution. Emily barnes is the recreation manager at the nursing home here. She is explaining more about the approach. She takes when organizing activities. Anything how much. He missed actually being avid hunter. Every year and how this time of year is kind of hard because he felt like he was truly missing out on something important. I am although the person centered approach and we cater to the individual interests of our residents The community that we come from hunting providing for their families is such an important part of life. So we try to incorporate everything that was meaningful before they came here. So i wrapped my brain and the nice lurking in the middle of the night. I thought we're going to be decorating for christmas shortly. So we own about ten christmas trees. And i thought why not set them up so i So i headed into down. And i went and i found some of the your hat on and so what kinds of activities. What other kinds of activities have they done in the last few weeks emily. Inner team have held photo shoots for residents. They had a lip sync battle and carnival. Fast food chain. Tim hortons opened on manitou island in october. The elders were able to join in the festivities too with the drive through cart serving coffee and donuts import for elders. To be a part of it. 'cause you when you think like what are your grandparents do in the afternoon a lot of them. They drink coffee. They go to tim. Horton's they meet up with their friends. And so i didn't want to miss out on this important milestone. That happened on our island. You sign sweet. We teamed up with tim. Horton and I was very fortunate. My husband's a carpenter. So he was able to make us the structure a Yeah we're able to still have them have their cup of coffee and be a part of the community celebration though. We didn't have to miss out. So what impact has this approach to recreation head on the residence in the nursing homes administrator cheryl was aiba win peltier said these activities have been so important because of the increased measures and restrictions currently in place because of the coronavirus pandemic and residents aren't the only ones enjoying it. Photos and videos of every activity or shared on social media cheryl says that these activities received tons of feedback from people across canada and the united states some joining in with their own deer hunting activities. The biggest thing i take away is other. Residents are enjoying activity we actually shared from. I think it was a home in Ohio they actually posted a video and they did the activity further residents there and i thought wow like homes are enjoying that activity and do they look like they're joining it just as much as our residents were residents have definitely noticed the attention. Their home has been receiving to this was one of the priceless reactions to the viral deer hunting activity and today. I actually just saw an elders large and aquasnap post photos of their own nerf gun hunting activity too

Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

The Cultural and Ecological Implications of the Salep Orchid Trade
"Take those steps in and do something professionally with your career to actually. Contribute to the world of conservation, which brings us to the topic of Salad, and if anyone listening has heard of salad at all is probably as an ingredient, which is interesting. Because often times I hear people saying, Vanilla is the only culinary viable orchid on the planet, which is not true. So let's talk about sal up what is it? What is it used for, and where does it come from? When Salad Salad? Actually, it's not only an arcade ashamed Larkin it's like a big group of four kids. If you go through literature, you can find more than thirty five species. SLEAFORD Silane it's also depending on when a whether you are what exactly two different species or group species in Greece different one in Turkey or other countries. So when we talk about the If we see all the countries together faced in weekend, say that the most common once belonged to Janet like or he's like that filariasis also mccown. And infected, maybe it's off races when. So what's smoke one between solid core kids as their root system they most often have obeyed Bob's or? Huber's along one that look like little fingers. If. You see those on the rises. So this is actually a a salad porchet and being driven is coming through the dried and ground Cuba's that's what you get the. Fowler and the Susan Shelley Different. If you see, for example, in Greece, they like days they're just washed with water and dry. But if you go to Durkin also boy in either walking on me, it depends on very Jim. So that's what's giving you the final product of salad father. In what is sell generally used in? I mean, if someone's looking to see if it's an ingredient, what kind of food are they looking at generally or is it a lot just like the orchids that gives us it If you look at it as any greeted Bailey actually there are a lot of things you can find it most often is the traditional beverage. Back. The. Actually it's not always clear product that sometimes makes the cornstarch. Bob Is the one that you make the beverage hot beverage also techie you can find the acid thickening ingredient for they additional ice cream called on the. One that stick you on. an increase is also used or traditional ice cream, but this call, Kai Mikey by this mixed with mustard powder. The one that comes from the must be healthy. So this is more I don't mind. And less. But issue see that he starts Suzanne Masters you can not a fine sapping the most stains places even as an ingredient or bombs. So. Mrs I leave. I much. Boy. While an okay. So these are all terrestrial orchids for anyone that's not familiar with the Genera, and when you talk about harvesting routes, that immediately brings to mind issues that we have with harvesting plants here in North America for instance, panics and high dressed us. Those are two plants that are highly sought after further routes, but the very act of pulling up a plant. By. Its roots kills it right. So this is where you can kind of see the connection with conservation. If you're harvesting the roots of a plant, you're you're taking its life away from it right and so that's where you start to come into issues with biodiversity endangerment with a lot of these orchids correct yet because the production of Saleh Pro Juarez, the use of the entire. Plans. So basically in the overwhelming majority of aces harvesting salad means the destruction of the orchestras selves. Now to make one kilo solid requires a by two and a half thousand plans. To the half thousand individuals, Wallin kilo. Of. Salam powder ouch. Yeah. That's a lot of orchids. Now, if you think about one cup of sal but of the equivalent to Cappuccino or something but drinking salad beverage. you need five grams for that. So if you do the math works as Iran thirteen plans for a single cup of salad drink. Does a pretty expensive kind of process in terms of of orchids. and. There are certain people told you know taking one of the to chew birds and putting the other back but all this is all this is just talk really because the amount of work required harvesting these things it's very hard were, and that's one of the reasons why are studied we found a lot of people that actually stopped elected. Elected Saleh. But It's a bypass were talking about something between. Ten. In Turkey and the launch ed very variable. The amount of used something between twenty and AC tones in a single year. Yeah. And that I remember talk from Professor Cramps Zeke, he mentioned that every year and thirteen one, hundred, twenty, million arcades are being kids in order to produce missile of the year. So it's like a tremendous amount of individuals and as able say that it is like you're actually bringing up a whole mountain that say a huge number. Yeah and again, we wouldn't be talking about conservation here. If this was something that was produced agriculturally, right these are all being taken from the wild they're harvested and those numbers are mind blowing I had no idea what we were getting into when. We started talking about this just in terms of quantity and like you said, it's not just the fact that they're pulling these plants out of the ground and them for this it's your digging the whole time you're also disrupting habitats and that's something I never see talked about when it comes to harvesting foraging anything like that is the fact that if you're digging things up your

What does South East Asia want from the US and China?
"Bland is director of South, East Asian program at the low institute and Longley to. She's a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute walk into your by. Ben How is the increasingly assertive use and indeed Australian position on China. How is that being interpreted in South East Asia. We have this is a very broad region of ten countries of different size from giants like Indonesia to minnows, like Brunei to have been diverse reactions, but broadly speaking I think there's a lot of frustration with the trump administration the way it's being on the one hand increasingly unilateral and unpredictable. But on the other hand, there's this fear of US abandonment if you like in a long-term leaving the region to. Gemini so I think we have to understand. It's a complex picture, right? So the US has to treaty allies in southeast, Asia Thailand, and the Philippines and they've been amongst the countries that are most China friendly and most frustrated with the US government in recent years be while we see a former. FO- like Vietnam there's being one of the most receptive of the US approach to. Try and run the loss years. So it's quite complicated I. Think the real risk here is that the US government and to a lesser extent that I'm camera believes that it's more assertive stance on China is appreciated in the region and I think that's really not necessarily the case because at the end of the day like Australia. But most South East Asian countries China is that biggest. Partner, as well as being geographic neighbor is that you're reading to Huang given the Vietnam of course has been just mentioned is a Cold War Foe of united, states but in in the face of verizon charts getting closer to Washington. Southeast Asian nations have gone through a different phases of. Living next to China, they've known China. Through historical engagements of this is not a new thing for them. The anxiety about China's and China's might end as you mentioned, they've gone through A. Competition to window call when they have still vivid memories of that. So in overall I think they they do have anxiety. There is a pronounced anxiety about the intensifying great-power competition that might. Lead to similar way of asking them to choose sides like was in the Cold War but I think all of them want to keep both China and us in the region a engaged. Also not too. Aggressive or not to assertive, and they also want to involve other. Powers not only the be the two big ones but also Japan Australia's are career and the European countries. A little bit of competition is good for them but took much competition can be nervous. Let's bring it to Indonesia Ben. There's your name subject at the end of last year Indonesia and China had a face off over the ownership of the Natuna islands which are in the southernmost part of the area of the South China Sea claimed by China. Where does Jakarta stand on China? Now it's an, it's an interesting question building a wall who was just talking about because we look at Indonesia's president. Jerko with widow known as Jacoby, I've just written the first English biography of him the plug in that. He he is an economy I president. He is someone who is above all interested in creating more jobs, getting more investment into Indonesia, and especially during a time of covid nineteen when the economy's really collapsed and Jacoby is a transactional leaders that he wants those who are bringing the most money with fewer conditions and right now that is China Chinese state-owned companies. Chinese. Private companies like qualify as well. On, the other hand of course, Jacoby has to be seen to be defending Indonesia's sovereignty and we have had these clashes over fishing rights. I have access to certain waters that you mentioned. So I think when those of come to head, Jacoby has made a symbolic stance. He's gone out to the tune of see visited the islands gone onto ability ship a symbolic declaration. He's going to defend Indonesia's sovereignty but by in laws you trying to stay away from these. Geopolitical issues to play down the tensions with China said of the economic relationship can keep developing. So it's a really difficult balance and I think there's also a shift that's potentially happening in Indonesia. So the old guard if you like in the Foreign Ministry and the government in the military, they really view above all other things strategic autonomy on non-alignment as being the key for Indonesia. So don't get into any alliances don't get too close to any one power but. There isn't new of God if you like coming through increasing, you think Indonesia needs to be a bit more active about engaging with potentially the US Australia, the Europeans Japanese to try and balance out the region. But for now are really think with Jacoby in the hot seat it's the economy I put the geopolitics aside at the end of the day that's a positive for China, but it's not an open and shut case because the had been long been tensions. Between Indonesia and China. So Jacoby like a lot of other leaders in the region, we'll have to find this delicate balance, but it's getting harder and harder and Huong Vietnam your nation. Let's talk about that. It's been pushing back against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea, which threatens Vietnam oil drilling and fisheries, and of course, it's had an ongoing dispute about water flows in me congresses where China has built dams stream at tell us more about Vietnam position on China. Is Getting nece position on on current China is also a frustrated I. Think at Phnom has gone grew proably among all in countries have had the longest history of interaction with China and most cases where it was trying to defend its own national sovereignty and resist China's expansionist tendencies. So it's been ingrained in Vietnamese National Psyche I would say current us of China Sea conflict to end disputes are only. One of the examples of that, but it is similarly with others opposition countries, which is it's harder and harder to seek more peaceful avenues of dispute because it is a strategy in the South China Sea is among others was to include the direct dialogue with China but that is not really much come to help these days with Chinese expansion expansionist tendencies. Now, you mentioned also on which is very important. Aspect in the relationship. Phnom is at any of the lower mccown and China, is a deal a top of the upper and it's projects of a building dams and not only in China, but a call goes invest in dance in now Cambodia Yaman and Thailand that blocks blocks the water flow blocks were flow of the river, which is very important for agricultural conditions in. Asia and it is called the bowl of rice for the region and the countries. Of course, they export rise agricultural produce and also Crohn's fish and stuff like that. So we've China's interference into ecological nature of the river that can potentially add cost a lot of income for the countries, but also with a backup climate change that can pose a certain at time. Security threat to the food safety and food security of the region. So it is quite a leverage that China can have on the lower countries including at Phnom follow question to Ben Bland. Given what you said earlier about the relatively nuanced in measured response of south. East. Asia towards the United. States if you like trying to ride two horses simultaneously. What happens if China's rise continues on, abide it and seeks to dominate the region and America as the acting regional hegemony on goes to great lengths to stop China from dominating is where do you think? Will be of Southeast Asia then it's it's really hard to say how things go election coming up in the US very soon, I think that could have a big impact on how how things go in the. Trump and pretty anti-china. There's really a difference in degree rather than just shooting Washington goes to great lengths to stop China what they. In, that scenario. All I think I think we're probably not GONNA get to a situation where South East Asian countries have to choose one side of such. But what they will have to do is face an increasing number of difficult small choices about what technology they use in their mobile networks about what military exercises that willing to do about what investment projects say yes or no To so life will get tougher and tougher for the region, but I don't think at the end of the day. Any of the countries will be willing to join an alliance either with the US or with China. So they're going to keep trying to find the space in the gaps in between to try and exploit competition for the best interest if you're looking at. The longer term picture I think there's ways the big affair of the US just turning back inwards and the ultimately that the trump presidency. The rise of trump is probably a symptom of the issues in the US which are gonNA lead to a turning inwards and maturing of the US as a power being less influential pretension in Asia and the rest of the world. So, it may not be a question of China in the US coming to a head but the US rhetoric increasing the US pretend you withdrawing from the region

"I'm very pleased to have Bruce Bruce Pond founder of ocean protocol. Bruce could you please give listeners a quick introduction on yourself. Yeah I got into the blockchain space about almost six years ago. So Trent mccown again myself we. We're kind of early to the space in getting excited about bitcoin and Then seeing how the tools bitcoin or the concepts of bitcoin could be applied into nonfinancial use cases like data before that essentially I was this building banks around the world for over a decade in Asia in North America as well as in Europe and that informed a lot of the way that I was thinking about how we could upbraid the financial system and Bitcoin was a strong inspiring on a factor for for us to for myself to jump away from building banks and move into building building infrastructure to unlock data. Brilliant Brilliant. So here at inch long we always ask all our speakers acres first question which is what is blockchain. And how does it work defense he giving a defining it. I given a lot of talks at at multiple levels of abstraction and the best way that I can think about blockchain is it's it's what we call a general purpose technology. There are only about votes thirty to thirty five general purpose technologies that have ever been discovered on earth by humanity and humankind. you start with things like fire higher agriculture domestication of animals. And you go all the way back into this century century before and that is electric occasion. It's the rail system in this decade. We're going to see things like a blockchain bioengineering these types of general stack -nology steady essentially infuse themselves across the entire world. And that's why I think particularly for this podcast. When it was originally geared towards the insurance industry your audience is much much broader because a blockchain is affecting more than just insurance? Because it's it's the holistic view. Just it is all around us whether it's in our devices are machines are cars in the street lighting. It's been integrated enjoying Chhaya world and so at the highest level. The way that I explained blockchain is one of those fancy new technologies that is going to change the world over the next thirty years At a more in depth technical level you could just say that it is a way for us to use technology where you don't need to trust in authority and I saw line interesting concept. I read about it yesterday and it was science in the enlightenment. took us away from believing in authority. The supreme extreme kind of knowledge of authority in when whether whether it was in Or the king. Or what have you. And it made us take a different methodology for understanding the world around us which was the scientific method which was criticism and understanding. This blockchain is taking us away from believing that we need a central intermediary to hold things of value for us like bank like a government or any other enterprise that holds for instance our data and blockchain allows for data to now be held in a way that there is no authority. You control your own data and for me that is probably the most powerful way for people to understand. Is that we question authority now. Now when it comes to holding things evaluators before in the scientific method this this whole trend over the last four or five hundred years is that we question authority for knowledge and so just Internet which came let's Thirty years ago to the general broad public allowed US access to information In a way that was never before possible now. Blockchain is going to allow us to get access to control our own assets in a way never before apostle I'm just not even going to go into the technical aspects. I absolutely love that definition in a clinician. Thank you so much for that. So we've we've had the pleasure of having Trent mcconaughey your your partner. CO-FOUNDER I'd ocean protocol here on blogs but for our listeners who are Aaron Familiar wiz Ocean Protocol. Could you please give us a quick introduction on it. Ocean protocol is the confluence of six years of working in the blockchain space. As I said. We're Kinda pioneers in years in space. Where in two thousand thirteen Trent mcconnachie and his wife Mash Mikan and he came up with the idea of Bitcoin? Is this really interesting. Global database that allows the people to have perfect knowledge about who controls what financial bitcoin right and we said well. This is one of the problems. In Intellectual Property Copyright who owns the copyright who owns the rights to control the distribution of for instance music or books or anything else of of value that is more of intellectual nature so we started a company in two thousand fourteen. Called a scribe to do exactly that to try to put intellectual property copyright trademarks. All these types of things on the Bitcoin blockchain now we we know. We found out pretty quick about eighteen months later that using bitcoin Bitcoin as the transport and storage medium for Meta data for copyrights was not a good idea. BITCOIN is meant to be essentially financial infrastructure actor digital cash and we realized that we needed other infrastructure and this is when all the other hybrid different blockchain started. Come out so a theory we were kind of in that same cohort There was other things Around such as the theory that we kind of gone into Zeitgeist and we created this called Big Jane Devi which was a database that was built on blockchain technology to store meditate. disolve exactly a problem. With a scribe and as we worked in big chain we did about fifty to two hundred industry proof of concepts we realized that. Where does this all lead and thinking taking the bird's eye view once again? We realized that UH who needs data with providence who needs control of their data it is the people either providing data And trying to sell it for the consumers because a is actually sucking up all the data we don't necessarily realize add the normal person just hanging out on the street but everybody viscerally feels else that Google Amazon facebook and a whole bunch of other of these online companies are sucking up the data to feed their Ai Algorithms and and the more sources where you can get data from and not just one source for instance the better your albums going to be and if you can ensure that you know the provenance the ownership the origin of data. Then you have something that can start to change the economic model. Aw for society when it comes to nonfinancial use cases such as intellectual property I just WanNa take segue and say that. In the mid nineties there was evaluation of all the land and all the intellectual property on earth came out about half half so land and was worth multiple trillions and intellectual property was worth about the similar thing. Going thing was we didn't have the proper kind of valuation method for intellectual the property nor did we have the infrastructure to track who owns what and with blockchain we finally have that we both have a financial infrastructure from global borderless payments micro payments as well and we have a global infrastructure to track ownership of intellectual property property and so we think that this is a defining moment for human society where the things that most people are now starting to do the service economy the knowledge economy. Amy is going to be valued in a way. That wasn't possible before and that in a nutshell is ocean. Protocol is trying to make that bridge between the current world. Where if you share something on the Internet it's gone? There's no value other than the knowledge that you can transmit and you have to find other ways to monetize and after ocean port goal which is where you have the providence of the data you have a means of exchanging value and money for that intellectual property and we can build build a new data economy that everybody on Earth can participate
"mccown" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Was I think. Reflect on that later but but it was fun to be out there for sure what a post game soliloquy from this man who became again the oldest player at forty years in one hundred eighty five days to make his playoff debut in. NFL history now forty year old in one hundred eighty seven year old. Josh mccown here on the rich Eisen show. How are you josh? I'm doing great rich. How you doing Matt Allen? How how? How does it feel to hear that back? Two days later Josh You know I still I think you it brings back those emotions and triggers those things You know just just very Thankful you know for the opportunity to play and compete and a great great game we get to play and And this journey that I've been on and wanting to get into the playoffs and all those things and and to be able to go out and play obviously obviously circumstances being unfortunate with with losing carson but But to be out there and competing was was fun and And you know just very very thanks have that chance so I and the reason why I That moved me is for somebody who you know. I've been involved with the NFL for for many years and it is a family is a family decision as certainly when you play for nine teams I cannot imagine how many boxes you and your family of packed or the schools that you and your family have had to find or you and your family have had to whole kids out of and and it is it is a true through emotional experience to just get out there and helmet out and pat up and and and that's why I moved me Josh. It certainly did you know you should see my wife worked. Take Gun chicken box together in a heartbeat But that's that's that's the reality of this business That used to be in. And it's a it's a it's a great you know. It's a great business but it's also a tough. I mean we're gonNA experience right now with with coaches going through coaching changes and and their families being uprooted and and And there's a human side to this For sure that that you know people remember You know when they when they watch a game or when they get ready to scream at the TV or whatever And and no doubt we are compensated. Well but anybody who's ever have to move. Were doing things like that and I can understand and as part of it and And you understand that and is like I said it's it's part I love what comes along with being a part of this business and and and the privilege of playing in the League and so You know all those things Kinda hit yet once at the end of the game like that and and So certainly felt that this weekend but I was glad my family was there in the stands with me my mom and dad and wife and kids and and and And so I was thinking that they got to be there and be a part of it and see it and wished game would have gone different. Obviously shirt but Special nonetheless well. It's not your first first Rodeo. Obviously as we've established an answering the bell in the middle of a game and having to go out there but this is the first time it's ever happened in a playoff game. What was going through your temples when when when whence clearly Needed ahead to a blue tent on Sunday. Josh Right. Yeah it's it's the nature of kind of these Ah This quarterback room you know you sit there and all year. You're you're you're getting close knowing each other working together trying to find ways to win you know. We had some dark moments in there with our back against the wall. You know and four and seven and then and then when those last games and and finding in a way and so seeing everything Carson's put into it you're sitting there and watching him kind of go through you know trying to get his you know mind on right and feel better and and and you know waiting to see what the doctor say and stuff. So your heart's torn you know because you WANNA be okay. 'cause it's my friend and this guy that I'm watched work really hard to get to this moment especially given the the the recent history you know in his career and so So you kept the shift from that mind to okay. I gotta go play and I got to go be there for my team and I gotta go execute this game plan and so it's it's a little bit of a dichotomy there but but but once you know he had it to the ten. I grabbed a helmet took some practice stamps. Your mind is okay. Let's go play and and you shift the focus to what we have to do to try to win this game and obviously so you don't know at that point in time if the game is yours for the rest of the day when did you learn that fact right. Yeah I think after the after the a second series You know Kinda came back. And 'cause usually I happened earlier this year in Atlanta where they came and they check them I went in. He actually came back in the middle of the drive. I went in five five or six plays and then he and then you know I'm sitting there ready to call the next plan and get a tap on the on the shoulder in the huddle as A. Hey I'm back so I had the sideline so I kind of had that in my mind like okay okay. Maybe he's going to be you know. Come running out any minute and get me out of this thing but but you know after the second second series I was in there like it doesn't like he's coming back so so it I was just you know your mind is just filled in at that point. Okay let's go the rest of the way and get to go. Did you at any point go up to Doug Peterson say. Let's do the phillies special. You ever say that Tam. Yeah that's always you know in the in the in the in the mix I'm sure in the possibility of things to be called and and and I certainly wasn't wasn't afraid to To Take that if if it came down to that But you know the way the game floated just didn't come to that but but but But yeah you know you never know. Well I mean and again Through Josh mccown Eagles quarterback here on the rich Eisen show after filling in for Carson Carson Wentz in the playoff game on Sunday so Do you guys talk about the clowney hit. Have you guys talked about it. Think about Whether that was dirty out of bounds what where do you stand teammates on that subject. Right now Josh. Yeah you know I mean obviously those things get discussed and and you know you're talking about Ah fifty six locker room and and so the opinions are going to vary Unfortunately when you lose playoff game and you kind of have the final meeting on Monday. There's not it's not like other week of work where you have this ongoing conversation You know seen the hit a few times and and And I I I. Don't I assuming that people play with ill will or or move with ill intentions and you know I think the guys go out and they compete as hard as they can and they play hard they can and unfortunately things happen. You know Looking at the hit and looking at the angle of his head and stuff like that when you see it in slow motion and from different angles. When a guy's head gets gets that low to the ground I it's I think you know again? Those are things that probably trying to eliminate from the game and so oh I hope that moving forward we can. We can continue to focus on that and make the game safer And you know that would be. That would be my opinion on that. But like I said I hate to assume that today was going with an with an ill intent but this is a physical game and I understand that and and you know we talk about it on both sides of Of the coin as far as playing the game physical and wanting to and wanted to play hard as you can and and we you know our defense of Gaza coast to play that way. You know so. So it's it's both sides. That's an unfortunate and again I I don't know it's hard I hope that's not the case and And and more than anything that the League can continue to look at look at this thing you know. Oh with a with a fine tooth comb through it and make sure that we're getting these things right so that we we keep our game as safe as possible. Do you think players would be Good with the League. Adopting what college does which is even if there is no flag on the play like there was not on Sunday with the Clowney head of your of your teammate. That an eye in the sky would buzz down down so let's take a look at for targeting and objective player through replay. Do you think the NFL players would be fine with that. I think over over time. Like if if if instances like this keep popping up where you have such a a split opinion. Maybe it's not a split but you have such A. Ah It gets talked about like you and I are discussing now. If it's one of these things that it didn't draw flag and you know what I mean if this keeps happening where we're we're we're maybe we're we're missing some of these things and we're not getting it right then absolutely. I think then we need to just like just like we've done to introduce on the medical side a spotter so that so that we we protect the player and We should do that. Do the to the to the game play as well because Because if you're going to say that it's I post hit you know. We want to protect the player. Well let's let's do everything we can to to do it before the the incident happens. And maybe having that in there would encourage that because at the end of the end of the day. They've made it clear they've said they're trying to take the head. And and the use of force. What the helmet out of the game? I mean they've they've made that clear and so So if you're going to do that then do as best you can. And maybe that's a step that would get that done Josh mccown here on the rich Eisen show So what's next for you. I don't know yeah we'll see I'm on you know get together with my family and obviously talk through things Like I said the other day after the game retired once I know how to do that but Now I don't I don't know if I know how to stay retired right there early but but but we'll just see I I have you know we haven't made any decisions You know I'm looking forward to to spend some time with my family and and And you know just just kind of reflecting on this year with them. I had you know the time my life with these guys this year and this was everything I wanted. You know it was it. was you know as you know throughout my career in the nine teams that you mentioned earlier most of those teams were startup situations. You know a new head coach rebuilding young quarterback whatever it was you know and so to come into this situation where it was a good football team that had had recent success and and a super bowl. Winning coach and coach Peterson and this season going away. It did and and kind of have our backs against the wall there sure And and then to be able to pull it out. 'cause I've been on so many other situations where we didn't run the table and we talked about it but it didn't happen and so to be able to do that. This year was special and and and And so I've learned so much. It was just a great great opportunity this year from me and I had the time in my life so so it's hard sitting here right now into not wanna go. I'm coming back I'M GONNA do it again all those things but I really need my you know my kids getting older and and that goes fast as well and so I really Wanna get together with them and and try to make suggest camp off. Well I know you said in your post game press conference that your body talks to you differently when you're forty and you keep talking about how your forty I gotta tell. Your hair looks eight. Your hair looks like it's it's more it's probably more like Seventeen eighteen at eight. I had a horrible Calica I've gotten under control and and saw a little bit better about it now so reshape. No you gotta sit with trust me. I as a man follicly-challenged at age fifty see I noticed these things and and you know you'd told Our producer at the beginning on while you're on hold That you you have a photograph wrath of the two of us from back in the day at the NFL network when we met years ago. Is that the case we're sitting. We're sitting there in those two club chairs. That first studio right when you know shoot I was. Oh to believe throwing a micro three or something like that so right when the network started and and I are And and and you you were less follicly-challenged this it's a lot of love. There's a Lotta flow. There's a lot of flow. There's a lot is generous. They're slow there for sure and And looking sharp I really wasn't you know I look back at that picture. And and Learn a lot about myself too and my was not where it needed to be back. Then we could have. We could have had the moment that you and Darnold had in the preseason season a couple of years ago where we ran our hands through her hair at the same exact time right. We could have done that. We definitely could have had. That could have happened you were you. Were totally a capable of that at that moment and and we could have made. It made it work I it was. It was such a fund that was my like first time around the studio in anything and just I remember just watching you do your thing and and how much you know when you when you have.
"mccown" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Welcome our number two of the rich Eisen show on the air During the break Mike del Tufo was googling. I is it toxic to clothing And apparently it is thanks Mike and because the reason why we looked at up is Chris Brockman just paid off what he said he would do when he tweeted it out on November twenty four th in response to an Andrew Pearl off mclovin of Dan. Patrick show fame tweet about how the eagles were not out of it at five and six and I said that's correct. He said if the Eagles make the playoffs I will eat. Take a bite of Mike. Del Tufo sat on the air. We sliced up a one inch swath of the Of the hat into a peanut butter and Jelly Sandwich and the last time I was disgusted and entertained by something at the same time was the last two minutes of the bills. Texans playoff the game Saturday. That was the last time I was disgusted and entertained by something that just went down. You almost booted during the commercial break. That felt like it was coming coming up for a second. Isn't that bad well. PPGA's are tainted now for me Ono which is too bad. It's my favorite thing to eat your life. You chose that as the method of delivery sir. You said smoothie wanted a smoothie APP but that's nothing you can't just drink it that that's not you didn't say I'll take a a smoothie but Piece of Del Tufo Sat. Next time I make a hat bed. He'll be more specific. Oh Man Pat McAfee is gonNA join us in the middle EA- hour talking about all the news of Matt rule being signed from Baylor to Carolina. The giants apparently telling that rule. We're going to go with Joe. Judge the Special Teams Assistant Longtime Special Special Teams Assistant for Sabin and then Bella check they are signing. Joe Judge to replace Pat Pat Shurmur. And I'll tell you what GotTa look up stuff about Joe Judge. There's not a lot of information about him out there. Joe Montana the diehard a bears fan longtime great actor Criminal minds is coming to a conclusion after fifteen year on. He's coming here in studio to talk about all of that but this caught my eye. After after the game on Sunday the Game Philadelphia Josh mccown at the age of forty plus playing his first career playoff game as the backup to Carson Wentz. He wasn't the original backup to Carson wentz coming into the season after nate. Sud Feld went down that the Eagles called up mccown Hound who retired from football to start working on. ESPN he comes out of the Bristol Studio. After just a couple of weeks to sign a beat a backup for wentz in wentz avoids. The injury bug all season long until June. David Clowney goes top rope on him. mccown tries his best they lose and after the game he was asked about whether whether this is it for him and about you know how long he'll remember being in this playoff game the first of his career. Yeah I'll probably reflect. Reflect on that later and again you know probably with sour taste But but thankful thankful awful. Just you know.
Josh McCown has emotional press conference after Eagles quarterback makes playoff appearance
"The seahawks just didn't really impress me yesterday. For All intents and purposes the eagles still had a chance to tie game. Let's go to one Josh. mccown get sacked on fourth and seven by the way with the game on the line. That can happen. Josh mccown knows that by the really Josh mccown very emotional after the game would not have expected that from I guess he knew that was probably his last go right. which by the way more power to them? Josh mccown. We're not get enough credit credit for the athletes. That he is dude gets buckets. I mean I post the video on my twitter last night and not a lot of people seem before he's a good. Athlete is a good teammate. He was at ESPN now. He's back in the league. He's crispin good for that locker room especially being banged up. He doesn't get sacked on four. Th at seven where they're in scoring range. They tie that game up very banged up very injured on a second. Second String quarterback that is tell there for the Seattle seahawks and before that they're on. What like the thirty five yard? Line there that fourth and three they through that little swing pass and drought-like drought-like again that's a they convert that down. They at least get a field goal. They're like miles. I don't know it's just. It's it's tough to
Biomimicry - Nature Shows Us the Way
"We do to our world we're GONNA and a half to live in it and it's important to make the very best of it. There are lessons we can learn from nature. I recently had a presentation by Richard. James mccown Hound who is the founder and managing director of Bio Mimicry. UK In the conference brochure. It said Richard is a real estate consultant and designer having worked across Europe on projects from billion dollar asset transfers to new developments his passion for all things bio mimetic and problem solving started wanted in his youth and it has never stopped since then this has led to unexpected clients and opportunities for the BBC luxury hotels and even running a workshop in a nudist colony in the Balkans. You never told us about that and the presentation but I was able to catch out with him later and we discussed a whole range the things I want to give our bio mimicry by a mimetic spy openings by affiliate all these words which became cross presentation last week but some have also caught my attention because you were doing a presentation in the context of sustainability is you set in your introductory notes. Most organizations have now adopted the use of sustainability as the best of the worst. Yeah Yeah because I think a lot of it has come to stunning St L.. Ability really is the kind of adopted thinking precip Armenta agenda ignoring five for the QB still in slavery densify chip or even into the workers and five understudying the not taking a whole by looking all the sustainable development goals angles or even simplified version of looking at the environment so the economic and social aspects. And that's the big thing. People think is ensure soot. Everything's connected we have agreed supply-chain its strength is the weakest link. Yeah so tell me a bit more about buying mimicry. I've I've looked at the website and I realize that there's an awful lot more than you had time to tell us about last week and the by it is an international movement. Is that right. Yes really comes to forefront night because we're understanding biology more. We've got confusing power over to analyze it really into even dented quantum level and giving as an undergraduate or understanding of how things are working so then that therefore saliva scientists to write more research into than there's alive and then be transferred into your Zaydan Engineering and materials science. You're seeing it slowly but surely coming through there's a lot more people actually came to the processes well because for designers they need to sell the process to continually develop new ideas and sexists coming with the one. Hit wonder right now. Is this another name for nanotechnology or as part of it. Well that's part of it but there's so much more newly systems uh-huh processing for computers new materials Nano scale and then to process in chemical engineering all the way author and then all the way through the building work in architectural sense right. So if I do something correctly you're looking at how nature accomplishes structures structures and other things and looking to see effectively replicated harnessed for what we want to create hibernates yourselves problems Overcome who is overcoming that. Not just one species found a way to do that but multiple than those overseas a very strong success strategy there and if you look at our designing problems that we have we solved it once you find one way of solving a problem. Multiple people do that as well. You look at mobile phones and smartphones. Everybody's jumped the symbolic Mike. And but if you think of it that multiple publishers and hundreds of thousands of species of sea salt streamlining onto the water or flight. insys save example. Then you look at the ones of salt in the way that can be most easily replicated for your To Saint Challenge Right. Yes you mentioned mentioned tights as a natural three D. Printer and three D. Printing of course is becoming more and more common and the range of materials that we we can use in three broadening. The thing about that sort of technique is that we find this material previously used to be block of metal on the out of it. Now we just get the material we need and we deposited so those sorts of things that you would take from. We'll definitely because he can and start learning from the not. Just hopefully construct for building technologies passive ventilation but yet into three D. printing as well because effectively. Millions of termites are like three D.. Printers very little information. But they're building an outing best together and taking bits where they don't need it so it's affected program ground. There was even some crazy research coming out. It's where they're actually look incorporating three D. printing on termites together see how they work not see the usefulness of at the moment but it's understanding this kind of clobbered ation between nature and technology. They might show a wave. How the work? Because actually create these structures that flew to move right and with a key ingredient being the light especially numidian turbines late eighty percent humidity controlled to that humidity level. Certain from this area though are highs in the nest sorry that stopped sped up other ones. Now I've seen from Woodstock you work with a wide range of organizations so you've been and and building instruction what other areas have you applied to bio two one area and the exploring with university partners. An looking at Jordan Technology microns based in Dundee lines and flip through the air. So you don't you can micro. Jordan doesn't have an engine to drop these oversee areas of a a war nuclear disaster even looking into weather patterns as he drove number hurricane. And he's very very small sensitive lunar writing in the Travel Vaas assistances and checking the weather.

NBC and depression to float around mind replicate the actual. The does love Bradley and manufacture including micro sensors for corrective applications right. We've got a client cautious of the moment. How do you see this sort of thing helping us to deal with these? There are two aspects of courses grosses mitigation to try and sort of getting worse. But something which people aren't talking quite as much almost equally important is adept action in other words dealing with the problems switch you already built into the cloud system you see by mimicry. Is Giving US assistance in those areas. I mean one of the big areas. I'm really I pushing. The loss of other people practice by mimicry. Regenerative design through architecture and agriculture. On in business practice How can you do regenerate areas that you're working in whether it's upstream or downstream supply chains or the building sits and you by looking to the natural world you can learn using low cost solutions using less material because in the natural world energies expensive and they have to add considerable as much as possible? I'm amusing materials and a more resilient monir so instead of paying multi materials if you look right into review our and look at multiple tiers of single the functions imagine creating buildings of one material but does different things depending on the thickness. Ohio's used we can do that. And the circular of cutting me. We'll do it cannot be wasting list. You've topping into this much. Free Energy is possible. Time you're bringing national world whose ability of your living building aloys not nature to be part of it is a big thing recruiting. The moon is dead zones for new insects and Barton cities right so we can building building building has got green roofs or green walls but having small spaces it's start thinking
How Winston Churchill defeated Nazism despite his 'black dog'
"Now today on the show visual defend our island whatever they got maybe we should fight on the beaches on the landing grounds the field and in the street fighting the hill will never surrender churchill the subject of countless plies movies drama series documentaries and biographies indeed believe it or not there have been a thousand Churchill Biographies One thousand the first biography was written in nineteen ninety five and the author of the latest one is our guest today now according to the prominent British columnist and historian Tom and heffer regular guest on this program this most recent Churchill biographies the best single volume imaginable of a man whose life would seem take impossible to get into a single volume the book is called Churchill Walking with destiny and the author is Andrew Roberts who's written other water declined books including a biography on Napoleon and the storm of war a new history of the Second World War Andrew Welcome to ABC Radio Thank you Tony took great on us now as I mentioned they've already been a thousand Churchill books published what's different about yours when I was very fortunate that there's been an enormous amount of sources that have come out over the last five years since I've been writing this book the Queen allows me to be the first Churchill biographer to use of his diaries and came due to sex mets church every Tuesday at the second mobile church who trusted him the great secret civil war and luckily rate down everything churchill say within forty one new sense of papers have been deposed to church college archives in the Cambridge University and other people like the servies investor time I even mice gate rations diaries basic become available giving those same in fact now on top of the dates and accounts of the war cabinet but I discovered six years ago allows me to have some they pretty much every page book it's never appeared in nature to focus okay well let's start with Churchill's upbringing can you tell us about Winston's parents briefly well he's talking to the upper cloth he was a charismatic successful Victorian politician he became chance of Exchan- so you never saw any of genius in Churchill and green to netted frankly they all the Stanford right to any sound full of contempt and to stay and his son Winston continue to love him and Martin and when his father died when Winston was twenty he raises who's focusing in Winston sorry randolph someone's name and he basically didn't allow it to to scream up whereas his mother also route took nations over to she was a great American future in society maybe something offense with the Prince of Wales Austrian about Saddam heels Okay and you went to school did he do you have did you have much luck at school I mean what sort of student was he he was a monster the student and he made himself out to be it's very rare for politicians to try and make themselves out to be thicker than they genuinely All I it should be in fact that being the dumbs 'cause he portrayed himself broke free my life he in fact was in the top third of all the classes ooh okay well let's turn to Churchill politics because he wasn't always a conservative he crossed the parliamentary floor in Nantes in four over the threat four government opposed to free trade in non white at thirty three he was the youngest cabinet member in forty years and then of course he was pretty significant figuring the British military from an early age this is of Relevance to Australians Andrew What do you wrote about his filings glibly in Nineteen fifteen well of course he was responsible for the idea of the of attacking the Straits of the dodgers novels and it was a brilliant idea to come off name one of the great strategic tunes of the of history of all Pfaff but as we all know say silently on the eighteenth of March nineteen fifteen Liane go six ships foods straits and then of course largely town to Him we double down and and landed all the way through fifteen and of course over the next eight months few one hundred forty seven thousand casualties suffered in the in the West Inside Straight so this was a drastic and terrible decision but one boots the real problem came in implementation well yeah okay now we went into politics to elect liberals rejoined the conservatives in the mid nineteen twenties what did he do that because the conservatives came back to the idea of free trade they it'd been the policy that let's say that's the party he joined the Nipples does the Conservatives dumps feature each and David intense you're often attributed with the quite quite I if a man is not a suspect I by the time he's twenty he has no heart if he's not a conservative by the time he's forty he has no brain churchill really say that I am and unfortunately there are lots of great lines like that but he didn't say he might have if you're going to keep going for example make the safest shape about about lady astor drinking coffee around any number of things keeping lucky men like Groucho Marx no power say funny things people with cheating too even if you didn't say those funny things it was talking about Winston Churchill with Andrew Roberts now Andrew your account numerous occasions when Churchill cheated death in your fi. He survived a school stabbing Cuban Bullets Boer Artillery German shells on the western front a near drowning replaying crushes three car accidents and a house fire Croaky and I'm actually very serious mainly at the age of eleven nomadic agent doctors administered brandy to the inevitable and which she wanted to be so you will send you make the point the church will develop the art of seeing virtually everything through the prism of history yeah it was the fact that he wasn't himself from historic congruent several extremely good he's a genius he was widely seen as Virginia wasn't he won the Nobel Prize for literature and actually he's unhappy about that because the price for peace that he was going to win communicants history who actually has been disappointed when he got the Nobel Prize which shop now we talk about a lot of people think of Churchill he's attitude towards the Nazis and Hitler and of course the British policy of appeasement toward Nazi Germany people forget this but in the late thirties it was actually popular with the British people tell us more about how Churchill riled against the spirit of the Times in the lightning thirties well he was only a final team is it's like jeeze you grew up with Jesus father did like the whole day with them they appreciated the service they it says humanity he was honest from quite an early age and saying he had an early warning system came during the Nazis that a lot of the other people in many wrench AC- rights didn't have also were so we mentioned earlier in being an historian he he sold the threat let's go to the European balance of power that we opposed and EDUC- seen fanaticism place in his life in a way that the other primary tonight people standing Naples we will never change and didn't say he was the first major predisposition of the decade the only major politician to not only warn against Hitler Nazis but also talk with an idea about what do I e rearming especially in the air the by the way you know you obviously know John Howard our second longest serving prime minister did you know that he's middle name is Winston it was named by his parents in mid Naughty thirty nine? When as we've discussed Winston Churchill was anything but the flavor of the month he was seen as yesterday's man rod that shows John's parents and Great must be full size. This is searching tremendously impressive actually I didn't know that's in Ann Arbor got I think yeah well during the war Churchill husband and relations with the United States which meant that America applied an important role in helping Britain defeat awesome but what about the altar pace conference towards the end of World War Two was not Churchill's finest hour why well because they back large number of famine of Yugoslavs to to get to Marshal Tito too because he he basically killed them and a hand backlog Germans and ethnic Germans who an ethnic Russians as well actually Cossacks to stone promptly murdered them as well so as far as the share sort of real politique day was concerned they had to believe result in general had to believe starlings were vulne- that he was going to get to respect the integrity and independence another eastern European countries but unfortunately Adelson those deals went shot which net new Mexico's yeah false assurances by S- talented the free elections would be held in eastern Europe but I mean you bit hot on Churchill because many historians would decide that the dying FDI he essentially stitched Churchill up I didn't believe that case I've been I've found myself we H mccown superbowl cabinet Churchill held on return from Yalta in which very much that he thought he could business was done in the deeper deep stalling the only alternative to trust on of course he was for that much thin walls and it's very other fueled fairness of course because in a million Russian soldiers variant at the time he was also at Folsom Missouri in March Ninety six When you made the Great Iron Kerr in speech the first major Western politician to warn against started was doing in eastern Europe

"mccown" Discussed on Bleeding Green Nation
"Now. We're just really hoping that he doesn't have to come into the game and if even if he did have to come into the game it it only be one game like you could by that. I mean like it's not like carson. Wentz goes down for multiple games and then clayton thorson comes in that game and then he has to start all the other ones too. I mean you could always signs someone after that game <unk> though so thorson would not have to play again so i thought they could get away with that. Maybe but it looks like they're not gonna take that chance. <hes> they're bringing in josh mccown. Who i think is going to be really the number two now behind carson wentz for really the entire year i would guess assad unveiled has a leg up on mccown in terms of knowing the system now mccown's only gonna have basically three weeks or so here <hes> before the eagles first game like that's a pretty be steep learning curve. He's a veteran you know so how have experienced some sure <hes> s really not going to hurt him too much in terms of being new <hes> but still it's it's a factor to consider you know he's not gonna be as well versed in the offense as southfield is so i ain't a little thing worth considering. I also think it's worth considering how this eagles roster. Oster construction is going to work out because we know kessler is not making the team that that much is obvious at this point i mean he is a concussion anyway. The eagles can't cut an injured player but i imagine ads and kessler will kind of be cleared at some point before final cuts happen in the eagles will waive him in move on from cody kessler <hes> and he'll be out there on the free agent market if they ever needed dirt dirt resigned him for any reason hopefully they don't and then at that point you'll have four quarterbacks and are you going to keep all four of those quarterbacks on the roster that'd be tough because you'll have a really talented roster and making my 53-man prediction for this team on friday like i did at bleeding green nation dot com..

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc
"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go
Jets sign Trevor Siemian to back up Sam Darnold, replacing 39-year-old Josh McCown

All right. What what is it like to play with Tom Brady some of the not as well known patriots who are asked that question yesterday.

And Tom Tom comes up and kind of shakes. Shakes my hand. Like, I'm Tom Brady. And I'm like, you're an idiot. Of course, you know. And you know, those little things is why he is where he's at the entrances themselves everybody in the locker room as soon as you step into the buildings, very personable, great team and great competitor. So I mean just want to emulate a guy like that. When I say, he's a he's a good teammate. He's always there. You know, you can always walk to his locker and talk to them if you need if you needs to go some place, you could talk to him. You know, he's alternate. Ultimate team. Okay.

When did you start start helping animals I started helping animals when I was four, and what made you want to start helping animals. So when we lived in Texas, and I would see that there were dogs outside of the outside of texmart. Now, we're just in crates with a tiny bed in them. And I wanted to get to for them to get adopted. Right. Okay. But a lot of people think that, but they just kind of go home and go on with their lives. But you decided you wanted to do something about it. I did because they don't need a life in a kennel. I mean, they should be running free. But I don't mean like running free. I just. Yes, they should be somebody's home. And that's so great that you do that. So you help you make videos to to show how cute the animals are. Right. And talk about why they deserve a home.

I mean, it doesn't have to be a dog. But it could the cat. It could be. The basically anything as long as it's just not something that came from breeding..
Turkey primed to start offensive against US-backed Kurds in Syria
"Less than a few weeks after Donald Trump answer withdrawal of forces from Syria. The Turkish government whose offered to finish off the Slavic states remaining forces convinced the US president to pull polish. Well, it's worries that he's having second thoughts. There are concerns that anchor is offered to take Washington's place as a cover up for a plan to massacre Syrian Kurds, a minority group which Turkey considers a threat to its territorial integrity. I'd also a terrorist group well answering those concerns the Turkish form minister Mevlut cover solo described the potential for Kurdish massacre as a ridiculous excuse. But then warns that Turkey would launch an assault against Syrian Kurds. If President Trump did not follow through Paul Rogers is a professor of peace. Studies at Bradford university. Welcome to the program poll looking at the. Contrast between those two parts of Mevlut Cavusoglu statement. And it it would almost be laughable for weren't so serious. It would be I think the problem here is that when Trump old the pulled out from Syria that was immediately backtracked. Not least by his advisors Tenny. Mccown do this quickly. You got to take time for the was the problem of the relationship between Turkey, so essentially Trump's into national security adviser John Bolton went to the Middle East. He had this meeting him someday seems to being put a very kind of something of a debt Squibb the tux. Did not like being told by the Americans to lay off the cuts, and I think we're seeing this strong reaction. It's very much. I think of political statement, it doesn't necessarily mean that cuts the Tuchman actually going with full so they have a lot of troops on the bowl too. But essentially, I think it's a warning to the United States. Don't take us for granted. You know, we all the players in this region. You send you to pull out when exact? Gun to pull out. Sorry. Finish complete there. And I'll come back in the second. So I think essentially with less with something if a stalemate, but because this is a problem between two major NATO states, and in the United States depends pretty heavily took because it has a huge base, which is being key to the whole air war against ISIS over the last four or five years, I suppose just focusing on the emptiness or otherwise of the Turkish threats. I mean is it in any way gender because of course, you know, they could probably do this at any time if they were really motivated to the probably could mean if you won't try and look at it from the point of view of both the codes, very lunch communities, full countries and took himself. I mean, the Kurds the Donges number obviously are in southeast Turkey many kids in northeast Iraq will though they have internal political divisions. They've been running that out of the country pretty successfully relatively small numbers without any degree of independence in Iran. And then you have the group. Series, not very very strong. It has a reasonably he's political party, the P Y D, you have the people's protection units, the white PG who basically being providing the the militias if you like and within much of the area, and that part of the code ish homeland of news that phrase has actually being quite effective politically 'bout as you say from the Turkish point of view. They regard to the Syrian Kurds as the most radical elements in very close to the own PK key, the Kurdish will pouty into the TIs so opposed to the Turkey state. So it's really this issue that as far as a why to coach community concerned the Syrian Kurds got home with it that huge wind about what he will do now. So this is the problem from the Turkish point of view there for problem from the white occurred. If point of view than it is very important to try and see a protection for the codes and Syria. What do you read as the actual thrashed that? Face with Turkey, moving even more deeply into Syria because suppose, if if Donald Trump's inner circle are raising red flags you've got to get this. If even day are doing you've got the sense. That's the really is a threat to them. The is a major problem to accept that. And from the Turkish perception as phone as their relation with the assent regime that has been pretty groomed for a long time on the Turks really not a toll happy the way this terrible.

I would say it was playing the decaying carcass of Josh mccown, right? So yeah, the. I've been pushing back all years you've said the Redskins are gonna win the division just doing that sort of wilpon emotional. Hedge thing. Yesterday. Was that was that was an impressive defensive outing. And that's how they're going to have to win because they're all fence just can't it with this patchwork offensive line and no targets out. Why they can't score. I saw something. No one in that division can score. I saw something on sports center this morning. And then I found a maze. Ing we think of the National Football League as if you've got the best quarterback. And he gets the most touchdown passes. You're going to win Alex Smith in three victories this year, including yesterday has passed for grand total of one hundred seventy eight yards high school kids do that all the time. No, an average she had grand total. Yeah. Navarine hundred three times on the number. Three times on the number number. They've won for less five. And I believe in the four winds. He is thrown for under two hundred every game in the one loss. I know last week over now again, they're thrown anybody be critical of him. If this delivers Vig never turns it over fantasy football culture is why. Yeah. But yeah, I mean, he never turns winning Kirk cousins was never six three here. Seven total giveaways. I mean, it some it's very low. You know, they just never turned it over formula to Christmas point is pretty basic. I mean, they they're among the league leaders with plus eleven turnover ratio. That's very good in this league. He threw his Alex Smith through his first second half touchdown of the season. He now has one touchdown in the second half. And again now through nine games. Redskins remain the only team in the NFL. No leachate during their games. There's been a single league. If they start out a win, right? This. Of course, second Lewis, right? Yeah. They have given it away seven times. Mazing Michael's position is it's going to be a repeat of the playoffs from four years ago with Green Bay and they're going to host and see north down have your friend Kirk cousins. Interesting. That becomes a national store is like one and done appearance that which are defined takes be home at Maryland. He hurt for the year. Just for now. Gary, do you know dig six he was out yesterday and not a season socialite walking? But that was David Crone walking it might be appropriate out in here. Definitely there is another interesting. I mentioned a whiz like one and done. And and Josh Norman with John wall light. Show. We're going to devote some time to that. Let me go through some of the other things in the NFL. That were surprising, and I've mentioned them, but haven't gone into them in any detail. Tennessee dominated New England never close pulled Brady out early in the fourth quarter. If not at the top of the fourth quarter. This is Mike Rabl who played many years for the New England Patriots. And he's got a lot of as I said, the socialite and David Crone Walken almost like yawns the place. My great books like is is a guy who played for Bella check for a long time. Was exceptionally good player. He's got he's got Dion Lewis. He's got plan and cooks on the he's got a lot of ex patriots. And they win that game. That's very surprised to attack that. They were up quick early right away apparently Dion Lewis revenge game till still little bit upset about having to leave the patriots. I mean, that's cheap on the way out. That's Bella checks move, though, how could you not know going in? That's the thing. He does trades. Everybody gets rid of a buffalo beats the jets you scoffed at this. But buffalo hangs forty one points of the jets are terrible. Even with even with darnold is no better than MC noun Macapa. They're all the same McMahon's mccown. Yeah. And darnold is no better than them. Jets were terrible. Terrible team. The Rams that was a good game. The Rams and the Seahawks. That was a very good game. The Rams come back from losing Cincinnati. Cincinnati. You know, you want to say that that that new I'm sorry, New Orleans..

"Us just now sam darnold gonna play quite a bit in two thousand eighteen their quarterback situation with josh mccown is short lived at best with mccown at quarterback and so he but like we've said here with the buffalo bills if you've got a guy if they're winning games and josh mccown is one of the reasons they're winning games or certainly not one of the reasons they lose any games that they do lose you don't make that switch there has to be a concrete reason you make that switch on the football with this team this year not about because you drafted this guy it's got to be about your team playing every sunday there has to be a solid reason on in that realm before you make the switch you don't pull a quarterback from a really good team unless he's part of the reason you're not winning or struggling when you do win he's so of josh mccown comes on steady like he did this last year why would they switch if other than the fact that they got this guy they wanna look at big reason because they got picking the drain on if they're five and four they're six and three they're not going to be six five and five i still think there's they got the second overall pick in the draft they got a quarterback that many teams would have loved to have including the bills the bills like same donald donald a sure they're not gonna they're not gonna challenge for a playoff spot so yeah it's plan but what if mccown's josh mccown years olds brief at the end of the year if he's the best option here with seven wins you got to get to the end of the year with two wins look if the bills are almost similar situation that were targeted for seven win season and your couple of months in i don't have a problem saying hey we want to get josh allen snaps now we're probably not gonna make the playoffs were whatever five and six and we you know it's an uphill climb let's take a look at josh allen i'm on board with that you and i are i think most fans would it be.

"Oh yeah definitely i think he could be an early contributor a guy some breaking news luke mccown has announced his retirement i saw it on i thought josh mccown was retired career for you luke mccown all right my last guy is ronald jones from usc i was watching some of the running backs behind saquon barkley yesterday and just kind of trying to pick between them everything else and i just really like his game i love how much wiggle there is i think that he has more upside as receiver and has more offers receiver than you saw at usc the guy likes watching him and just the feel he has and the balance everything else it just different than watching alex sony michelle i know that if people love him and obviously he's so explosive and just an absolute weapon but when i watched michelle i see like a bigger cj spillers if that makes sense he's just so vertical and just doesn't have that wiggle that a guy like ronald jones hasn't that's my favorite aspect for running backs guys that are able to just find openings fine to space in tight areas make their own yardage he's my face guy in that second tier and again i just think that second tier is loaded with quality people and if you don't get barclay or your and your silicon for running back there are a lot of quality pieces to be found i think the second and third rounds are going to be so much fun i think that's yeah it'd be more fun maybe even the first round there's just so many yet like you said there's so many high upside really fun guys it's the receiver position in the in the running back position in particular i think are really really exciting there so i think those are like the the the guys that are going to be like fantasy factors in in yes next year are going to be coming out of the second and third round hundred percent in the last decade in which luke mccown has been on a roster every year last year he was cut by the cowboys.
