"I get why you got this job. You are a so bridie coach now. Can you talk to me a little bit about that. Okay so yeah i can't. I can't do any specifics because competent. But but so basically what it is is is like a lot of people. Go through you know. We've seen that. They go through rehab or they go through. You know and and i'm not gonna say i'm not gonna sugar coat this it's expensive. It's not it's not insurance doesn't pay for it. It's one of these things that it's like it's it's kind of been a lucky thing for people. But here's what happens. You have a lot of people that go through rehab or they go through a treatment program or or they go through something and they come out and they just go right back to where their life was they just start using entering and and these are and we're talking about some of these people are heroin addicts or oxy was a big one had a lot of clients that were big oxy and and we're talking near death experiences and i mean almost odeen i've had guys od. I've had. I've had over a period of time. But what it basically is is is what i basically do is when you come out of your program your whatever your treatment. You're thirty days. Sixty ninety day treatment. I basically go with you in. I'm your i'm basically your assisted. I mean i mean not your system. I'm over your shoulder. Twenty four seven. Wow so basically there. I'm showing you. I'm kind of walking you through the steps of how to have a sober life okay. So it's like it's like you take someone and they're used to coming back and going to their apartment and then they call their friends and the like no. No no no. We're not that's not what we're doing. Can we play from second okay. Now i've gotten out of a thirty day program. I have and i think we're going to go to your house and we're going to clean it out okay. So we're gonna go we're gonna get we're gonna. You're you're obviously not gonna tell me now where you've hidden everything but i've been doing this a long time so i kinda know where out but here's the other part. It's also i'm a drug addict. Yeah i you're not gonna. You're not doing anything. I haven't done right so one thing is like you don't look i don't i don't look at you as anything other than someone who just kind of the light hasn't come on yet you know and it's like and some people really do want to come out. Excuse me very gung ho. But the problem. Is you know a couple of days in there will be like well. You know a lot of people meetings our our big thing because it makes you accountable kind of gives you a place to start. And for the first year i recommend people go to a lot of meetings and in because what it does is it gets connected with other people that are also sober and because you with the end in ninety nine point nine percent of the cases they know people there. It's not like they're walking in and everybody's stranger abbas i haven't seen in a while. Yeah i know. I i kind of quit hanging out with you because you were always fucked up. Yeah you know so. That's one of the things you do. You get them connected into something like that and and then you've got to kind of like you gotta kind of walk them through. You know you gotta just kind of walk them through the the everyday thing okay. Can you know some people. Don't have jobs so you got to walk through okay. Let's let's talk about job. Can i pause for second. Yeah i do. Want to point out when i got hooked on fucking kademi. I turned into our rat and like with squirrel away. I would watch myself doing it and be like what's the difference between me and like some disgusting hamster you know what i mean because you get real paranoid like i'm gonna put behind this book when like why. Why why are you doing. And then you'll forget where you put it like some hideous squirrel. It was i. I gotta tell you man. It was scary to watch myself. Just start like transforming and some it was gross to. It wasn't doing anything that's the other weird thing about. It is like it wasn't even working like what's the effect of this very expensive stupid thing. It started off great. I was having legitimate mystical experiences and then it was just like flat. Lining the final phase for me was i tried to record a commercial for the podcast and it took me four hours because i was like so dumb from this anyway man. I just want to point out like that. Must be a weird thing to have to go into an addict's apartment or house and dig through their shit to find their little drug nests over. You know where it's easy. What's the most commonplace or. I don't think there's a commonplace necessarily there's always the there's always the book. The book shelf area is always where something. There's always some kind of bookshelf area. Or there's you know the shoebox in the back of the closet. That's like you know. Come on that's the more sophisticated attic. This is going to have some nice shoebox in the corner the other addict. I'm gonna play it behind. My national geographic. So you go in you go through the shelves you gotta just yeah we just go through. And we basically depending on what they're thinking of choice was kind of go through and we you know we do a clean. do they. Try to hide it from you. Did they ever say like Because then they're like look. I'm sober. they're not i. Did they ever deceive you in the beginning. Oh oh i think. I think there's like it takes a little while to build up the trust but i think also like you know i You know my experiences is is that a lot. Sometimes you're going to have someone a client so to speak. That comes from a family that pays all their bills. Yeah and so in in the only way they can keep getting their bills paid as if they stay sober. Okay and so. They're doing it only in they. Don't wanna be sober okay. So they're kinda resent secretly resentfully are very resumed. it's not secretly. they're resentful and and it's like and it's just like you know. And i always tell him. I go bro.

"The twenty years for a minute i i. It's the the awareness now. Now the i you know. I i think it's like look i not everybody's alchoholic. Yeah not everybody is. And i and i hate it when people think it's like i don't dislike part. I don't dislike drugs. Yeah i don't. I don't think they're back. Yeah i don't. I'm all my you know gone. Work the road with guys who smoke pot and you're fine smoking pot in the room with me. You're drinking with me. you're fine. I have a problem with any of your actually sober i. Yeah the problem is is. It just affects me differently than it affects you in a sense that i can't stop doing right if i start doing right and and could i- now probably i probably could. Yeah but why. Why roll the dice. But not even why but why. You're you're zayn. i'm fine. I love my life. You don't need it. I love the way i feel and it's like an. I've become much more of a less selfish person. I'm more aware of of of other people's happiness. And i care more about other people being happy and and you know people say well. You don't care about yourself that's not true. The what would i mean by that is. Is that when you genuinely in your heart and you know this about your wife and your child but when you start inter inter putting that with other people and you start caring about whether they're happy in their successful so when they get something that makes them happy and successful not only does it make them. It makes you happy you get to share in that you get to be a part of that that wonderful thing and when i was drinking and using i wasn't like that. Yeah yeah. I know what you mean so i was not that way and it's like and now i'm just more aware of a more aware of other people's feelings and i love you and this is how i this is like when i look back at what i was. I know what i was going for. When i went wild at a festival or something trying to get as high as i possibly. Could it just the right time. I know exactly the timings thing where you're doing these acid math because what you're looking for is worth looking for percent. The sad thing is you. And i think actually it would be dishonest at least from my anecdotal experience to say. You can't get it that way. Because i think you can get a taste of it hundred percent you so much energy. To get that taste that's the prob whereas like you know once i had kids and i've had this experience now so many times. I'm not taking it for granted. But i'll just be like in the backyard. With my toddler feeling the same peak experienced would take re dosing on. Md makes it with suicide even fucking just like add some exotic location and to achieve something where it's like. I'm just like literally like in the backyard with a two year old spring with a host. And i'm like as happy happy as you can be. Yeah and so. Yeah i get it man. It's like it's like the harry chris. They talk about when they talk about god. They say it's not like they say this will ruin a lot of things for you and the reason it's going to ruin things for you is because you're not going to be interested anymore and some of the other stuff once you've tasted this thing they call it the higher taste. They say it's like there's not really it's like yeah it's there for you. If you wanna go eat the fucking like mcduck like what do you want to go tonight. You wanna go grab a cheeseburger or do you want to go to this really nice restaurant delicious meal. That's been my experience with it and well. Yeah i mean. There's so many different things that like like. I started doing meditation about since about sixteen years. I do vade iq which took a mantra and you go in. But there's what they describe as the the moment of bliss in that is when you know do you do. Tm oh no. I don i just do regular. That's fine that's fine so there is it. But what you're doing when you're doing or you're doing vadim suspending using mantra. And you close your eyes and you say the mantra and then other thoughts will come in and you you try to you just you. Don't push them out. You just let them flow. And then you go back to. Your mantra comes at time during meditation. When you forget to your mantra and other thoughts don't come in and they call them at the moment of bliss and that's when your body is actually your brain is awake in. Its aware that you are not asleep. But your body isn't aware because for the first time your brain is not talking to your body because your brain is just neurons. Bright your brain is your brain. Is firing. rain isn't a muscle. Your brain is giving your muscle. It's telling your body what to do so my brain's telling my right hand move here. Do this telling this so. There comes a time when you're sleeping in bed your go to sleep in you have that time when your brain shuts off your body's your it's rest right but when you meditate and you get to that point when your brain shuts off it's aware that you're awake and your brain does in your body doesn't know what to do. Yeah so the first thing it does is it releases stress because it doesn't know in so you'll feel you'll feel these emotions you'll feel the stuff like i mean i've been in meditations for just here star coming down is is feeling this stuff come out of me but there's also a time during it where they call it this you're in a state of bliss and it's like describe the feeling to you it's like do you know when you've had the longest day ever you've all day with the kids. You're you're so exhausted you the this thought of laying down is so heavenly and you get in bed and you lay down in. There's the moment right before you go to sleep where you just feel so good and sir. Relax. that's what it feels shit accept it lasts was so it's this feeling and it's this it's this it's feeling and you can feel i gotta get your mantra. Yeah and it's can you feel it and you just all of a sudden you're just like extending and you're like and you're aware and you're awake in you're like going this feel so good. Yeah and i just had like and you almost. It's almost like it takes a while for you to train yourself to just let it go in a sense that you're trying to go. Oh my god. I gotta understand this feeling and then you come out of it you know so and then you you take show while you get back in and you start feeling again and it's like and it will go. It's so funny but it's like in any learn to find the state and you don't search for it. It just comes when it comes okay. That's i've got a little bit of a reference point for my meditation teacher. His teacher would say disown it. The thing is coming the instructions to disown one hundred percent. There's absolutely because that's what vedic is just a different term for tiem with a you know it's twenty minutes to thirty minutes. You do it once or twice a day i try. I do every day no matter what it's harder. It's become harder to do a second when i used to do to it. I did to a day for like ten years. Oh my god and then it's just it's a plan b. Yeah but then it just became. It just became too right now. I listen court. it's two twenty five. I wanna get you out here by three. But i have a question i wanna ask you. Sorry i don't mean to cut into no no no wanted to say about that. No good okay. So i don't think people know that one of your jobs. Yeah is got to be one of the and now having talked to you for this amount of time..

Because you kill me but But i but. I would like to see until i was like you know just like just thing like you. Now now. they've been able to study it. It's literally the worst thing you can do with. It is really up like of something about reopening you know like when people get the the ecstasy depression a lot of times that's related to recapping. Take the dose. You're gonna take and don't fucking re up but why would take like three or four and a time but you. Would you take if you take more after. You know. Just doing okay. That's good 'cause like it's the reopeing. I by the way this is like i can't do it anymore. Man in the days there was ecstasy around. I'd eat that shit so fast. Oh my god the best. I don't mind being depressed for a few days. Now it's like fuck that. I'm just give myself a lobotomy. Like if i can't punch my ecstasy. I punched my ecstasy ticket. I never like mushrooms.

I'm down to fucking pellegrino in wyche like we'd it's depressing man like other pressing. It's you're not a young man anymore. See this isn't a thick and let me ask you this. Yes i technology emerged. That could reset your brain right to free party days right reset all of it and there was another technology that could if once you got addicted just could fix it. Would you start taking drugs again. No wow wow. I will tell you this. It's so i am so. I use drugs and alcohol for twenty four years safely. Say twenty four years is a good. Yeah so drank started drinking drinking. I was really young. But not not massively and i was not one of these people that woke up and drank right to this. Get the shakes off in right everything. So but i started smoking pot when i was thirteen. Fourteen dealer pot smoker. By the time. I was fifteen weekly. You know not necessarily daily but but pretty weekly and then. By the time i was twenty time twenty one. I was daily. I smoke pot every day. Wow not you know maybe not mass quantities. But i smoked pot every day drank. I started using cocaine when i was sixteen acid. I started so. I started aches teen cocaine. Now that's too young. Because i mean a lot of the other stuff. I can connect with but couldn't cocaine cocaine back then in nineteen thousand nine hundred seventy nineteen seventy seven thousand nine hundred seventy eight off. Mike i wanna talk about whatever your stems out. There is like dates. You a young man but But so so yes there But so i started. You know when coke was very pure you know it was really. It's very expensive. But it was. But so i started so anyway but to make this story shorter is like to everything i did. Everything degreen placid bills. I did quay lutes. I used to do massive amount. I loved quail where my favorite my favorite crowds were by far. I i thought they just made you fall asleep. Oh god no oh no you. Don't go to sleep on quayle lutes. What are they like xanax. Or something i know zanuck suck zanex zanex make you go to sleep. Yeah foods quails are like they're like being drunk and high but not tired. Oh god it's like you're awesome. It's just like it's like you're you're high as fuck but in your in your also you just don't have the best motor function so your mind. So you're like we used to say you knew when a new batch acquaintance came to town because all the people were denting their cars. Because you know you just you just hit shit.

Ro hr was on the on stamped on the pill and then later became lemon seven fourteen. That's what they call them leeann. This was the brand name. Lemon seven people were prescribing. Prescribe lemon seven. Fourteen quality quayle lewd quayle right. But i'm just saying it's like the manufacturers weren't really trying to hide the fact that this is a party drug if your name and your thing lemon no. It doesn't sound like think. That was a manufacturer. So i i don't yeah borelli. It's pronounced Mon mon but so. I did all that for for a number of years and it it probably it got worse. You know especially in my thirties. It got the cocaine scott way worse and the drinking became way worse. And you know the daily pot-smoking was just.

It's like i still have like it's i have. I don't remember highschool brother. I've gotta wear fucking fanny pack packer. I'll lose my shit. Like that's how that's how i mean i. I literally don't remember high school yet. You don't remember any remember. I remember high school like a blurry dream. Yeah i remember a few things about it. But i couldn't tell you like i remember one class i took and i and i and i was. You know i was there. But i remember. I remember this one class. Though i used to take that was in the in the i took. I remember other like auto mechanic shop or or like. But but i don't remember like i used to a lot of classes there and i just remember one cut because it was the morning class and we used to ditch the first period and we go but if we took him in egg mcmuffin. Before the end of the class he wouldn't count as absent. Oh what yeah. Yeah he was. I went to. Yeah that's cool. I remember that show. You know i always. That's all i remember on high school. It's for me. It's like you know when. I when i'm looking at the burn out. I am like okay. Like which slice is age which is huffing butane gas. When i was in high school which is a big thing. we are all doing. Probably not the best for the rain which is hundred hundreds of hits of acid yup which slices and you're looking at it and you're like what is the. How much of. This impairment is related to drugs. How much is related to lack of sleep. How much is related to diet. We'll never know court but for sure you don't want to get cove it because you're right man. I don't want i. i'm i'm like. I said i'm doing fanny packs. Now i gotta put my keys and shouldn't have fanny background lose him now. I'll tell you the good thing about having a history of drugs. Is i think people who have a history of psychedelic us. I think they're going to do better with covert because we know how to get fucked up so like we know. And i'm sorry a controversial term in the psychedelic community but come on. Sometimes you're getting hired. Sometimes you're getting fucked up and like cove it it's got a fucking psychotropic quality to it man. See that's interesting because wait one second. Just not to be rude. How on time. It's two zero five okay. Great okay awesome. I did. I used to do a lot of acid. I did a lot of acid did a lot of mushrooms And i can say that. I actually like the acid. The best i liked acid. I thought mushrooms were mushrooms. Smoking bad weed is like you got high. But you didn't really get high like you didn't really like i went to some some of my greatest events and i remember these events. You know like a jerry. Garcia's fortieth birthday. You went to jerry. Garcia's fortieth jerry garcia's fortieth birthday was a Outdoor show in oklahoma city. And i went with a bunch of college buddies of mine and that was like well what we did is we all did snoopy acid so we are always going to school stillwater. Which is in oklahoma and we were going from stillwater to oklahoma city zoo amphitheater. And and i'll never forget this is we. We bought a bunch of snoopy s. There were six of us in. Like a six steve five Buick like what really cool cars guy. Ralph had this big old car in six people comfortably sat in this thing too big bench seats and and we drove and we timed it. We're it's a fifty five minute drive to the zoo. And if we drop acid thirty minutes into the drive we should be just about like we. Should we should be going. Through the warmup bench. Which i think was the allman brothers and and and then and then by the time. We hit the dead by the time show starts. We should be really on a good. We should really be in a good place and we're like okay so we had this whole thing. We had it all planned out so we all we all did thirty minutes in we get there. We're at the show you know it's like we don't feel anything you know where the story is gone so we we were sitting there. The band's playing opening ban almost playing tied to the whipping post. I just remember that song so clearly and we're drinking a bit but not a lot more smoking some weed but we weren't you know but the whole thing was the dead you know had to be we had to be on. Yeah and so. We're like everybody just goes. Do we bought you know we start yelling it. I think it was like aubrey. This buddy whereas like oh you got you got shitty acid man like why you know you got shitty acids so we're like you know we've got like forty five minutes so they start somebody. Go find some acid and so we went and we found a guy you know that show..

Blind part of your your really are having to like smell. Your own shit like you're having to decide is this. Is this okay. And that's good. You need to be able to do that. Also i mean think of how many times you thought to yourself. This is a funny premise of this is going to be fantastic. You give front of an audience and you just eat shit with it. You know so without that you could just go on and on you doing some i guess with zoom though you get some laughter right from the screen. I don't know so you're not even hearing laughter.

"Yeah those are some good old days. I'm glad that you know. I mean that place really. You know i mean you were there with. I mean you know when. Joe came back in the you know because when joe was there originally i mean when he would do friday night and saturday night neo are. It was packed. Oh yeah because it was. He was fear factor guy and it was packed yet. And and that was. I get a lot of times. I'd get the nine o'clock on the joe rogan war and that was like. Oh it's like this like your was really hard room but it was fucking but that in the crowds were like i mean. I wasn't at during those dark days that she made me irregular in the most unceremonial way sitting down in the kitchen just sitting there. And she's like you're. We're gonna be irregular now. I don't know why she honestly does day. Like i don't know why she decided. I don't think you're you always. I always backed into you. Used to do little hobo hobo. I think someone talked her. But i didn't get to do. I did not perform during the dark days. I would do the open mics as i recall. Maybe i got some spots. You would. I would i. Yeah 'cause i 'cause. I remember used to do. I remember you would do. Maybe it was even later because you were regular when when things started getting better before the big yeah before the big splurge when we would have good crowds in because it got to where we would have pretty good craft beef before it blew up. Is they say yeah. And there was. There was a period of time. There was six or eight months or even a year. Whatever we're the store was good i. It was good. The shows were good. It was busy You know it wasn't just all of a sudden it was like this. You know it would have ebbs and flows it had employed weeknights. But i remember you. Would that little hobo which is cry. And that's one of those things is a comic. Do you have to watch. Like i know what's going to happen. But i wanna see what everybody else thinks but somebody stole little hobo. Yeah in san. Jose got stolen. Good glad because the thing is is like that turned into a real serious fucking christ. Like when i started going out headlining and stuff. It's like i gotta come in. I gotta do a sound check from my puppet and it's nice 'cause you got this closer right it's crazy and you know that it's going to do good probably depending on the crowd most of the time but also it's like yeah you gotta fucking puppet now right. You need to write it. But it's yeah but if anybody ever seen little hobo wasn't a normal puppet that no no no no that was not a good puppet by the way not good puppet evil thing but so awesome man. Look i tell you since this shit went down. I become a wheel. Superstitious about what is an off. Microphone on this day man. Seriously it was fun. Those dare thing but i was like. I don't know. I think this is the time to start. If you can make it funny. Which is hard. it's easy to make. Why is it easier to make things funny than it's gonna make sweet things. Funny i don't know is because satan is first of all the word the word itself sounds better. You know satan it's got this like nice like powerful awesome stats fun in scott the right lucifer say it's got the right consonants in there. It's like lucifer because you used to have the lucifer that that bit was just so good. It was so good. I love that i love little or thank you. You know man. I'm so happy that you have managed to continue doing see you doing shows you've been doing shows man. Yeah it's gonna come to charlotte. I probably event so you know. I just started doing live shows again austin and and that's why i went just to get back at because i was like you know we had a kid. We moved up here. It's fucking covert land. It's like i'm not going to even attempt to do shows. And when in the peak of the pandemic i didn't even want i was like i don't know what this says so i went to austin just like can i do it anymore. Which is really cool getting back on stage after so long how long. I've been like at least sixteen months. Fourteen months wow yeah man. It felt weird isn't it. I thought it felt weird. Feel weird like even stepping stage. But i am mad. And also austin is a sweet place and the crowds. Were very very sweet. They're so out. A lot of wiggle room wasn't like some fucking new york crowd. They're like no fuck you. I don't care how long it's been years. Touched a microphone. You better be funny fuck you. They were cool. So i got some mercy but it came back pretty quick. I mean we've been doing it for a long time. You know it's hard to beat it out of your system And i'm i'm so excited to get back on stage but when we would first time i did stand up so it the whatever. The pandemic hid in march. I was out on tour with a towel and ross. We're opening the bumping mike's tour. Yeah so we were doing theaters fucking. They were the greatest guys in the world. Go on tour that as an opener. Because you know. I don't have tv. Shows i don't do a podcast. I do yours but i mean i don't have my own podcast popular so i'm not headlining clubs and not that i can't i just i don't sell i don't put asses in the seats and and so the interesting thing was is i went to. We were doing theaters. But they go out with them and they go do a half hour. If you're killing another ten you know. And it's like for fifteen hundred and they always they're always be standing by the states. Just telling you to keep going so they would they love for you to be great. Yeah he wanted you to be great. Because they came onstage in what there's was very different than the bumping mike's where they were both on stage roasting each other and roasting people and yeah so fun and then But so that shutdown so when that shutdown at saks everything had shut down so it went from march until march until the until later i think it was mid november so march april may june july august ninety nine months and i had not gone a week without being on you know on stage in seventeen years so it was like to do this and i was like holy shit you know and we saw what they did was at the comedy store we would stand inside the. Or and people would be on. The balcony are on the patio out front and we would tell jokes through glass window to people and that was the first time and because we.

"No oh yeah the best show on fucking planet earth but if whoever decides that's the time they wanna kiss made these ads and a lotta times. They they plan that like they'd be like i don't like this guy who i'm gonna watch you know. And they would do that. So the third time i showcase i was good friends with luka luka clark county left yeah. Mitzi loved him she and he drove her around. You know blah blah blah so I was showcasing and one of these comics. Came in and luca turned and goes back the fuck off back to fuck off. She's watching showcases. And this guy was a little bit afraid of luca. Yappy not afraid. But people are afraid of luke. Luke luke who was awesome and i know luca forever young and And luca literally goes back the fuck off. She's watching showcases. And i think even pushed his head and it's like get the fuck outta here good for him because he was sitting next to mitzi and then i came. I didn't even have a good set. Really be honest but you know. There's twelve people there in your. It was just horrible but she. She was the queen man and she goes. You came by. Tim spats i is this again. He goosebumps i car. You just you're you're you get twelve feet tall and you just can't believe your past comedies. Cloud nine man it. It's it back then. It was like it wasn't it was. It was horrible. Parable horrible likable like you. I mean the improv is jamming. The laugh factory was selling out every nine. Rats were dying in the wall. You were you there during when iraq died on the summer. it's smells. The smelled death wafting from the walls. And the. Here's the thing about. Mitzi like i think like it would be easy to imagine that she was unaware of all these fucking angles man but she knew the angle of the. She knew the competition between comics. She'd and i think maybe like you know i i. Like retrospect is i can. I spent a lot of time big about your man and like in contemplating her method. I think it was a compassionate one and it was compassionate in the sense that there's no fucking way someone who wasn't a comic or at least someone who with all their hearts wanted to get better comedy was going to make it through that gauntlet and true and that was the gift because and she would say the worst thing you can do is like is like i'm paraphrasing. Tell someone or not because she saw an again. And i know a lot of comics from the comedy store my now like well if you eat seven lineups because they were covered snipe but listen. I'm telling you she saw the spark in which is why i mean. I was sitting with when comics. Who later went on to become massively super successful comics showcased and i and she passed them and i would think boy really y i mean that was awful set and then cut to a few years later. They're hbo specials. And i'm like. Oh i didn't know a fuck to look for she. She was amazing she used to. I know that like what she would do as she would pet. I remember getting past and then you called in the next week and then you get like a you get like a nine o'clock. Oh yeah you get the you'd get like the opening spa you get an opening spot and then you wouldn't get a spot for like two months. That's right and it would. She would do is she would see. Does he come in on sundays and mondays and workout. Because that was part of the thing if you were paid regular back then you came. In on sunday money you could literally walk in the door and go on stage. Because they're comics. Were running for the hills that were paid regular. When mitzi would pull in be comics there missy would pull in and then if they're paid regulars that were there would all go to pinks or they they go to carney's or they they leave and like that building was on fire. And so if you're a new guy you could just dance right on stage you know you wanna go all right. Let's go because you had nothing to lose at that point and she would just see you working out. See you do that for a month. Or whatever and then you'd get an eleven thirty or you know or eleven forty five or twelve thirty or whatever then you start getting spots. That's right i. It's early spots then. It's the atrocious or late night spots. Where you for sure. I mean because remember the the store would go through these periods of like some famous comic just decided they're going to come in and start working on our our due at least common that was back when eddie griffin to coming into three hours. Oh my god i. The eddie griffin period was a maid. Now is when i was in the cover booth man. Yeah so. I can get hypnotized by get i back off suck here. He goes by the time. he's that's a cult leader so by the time he's like to. I saw people wanted the eddie griffin set. And also you would sit there and the cover but then comics when you look around and see. These comics who had driven from god knows where to do fifteen minutes looking forward to it. Maybe getting babysitters who the fuck knows what you know oriented orienting their entire life around this one spot eddie griffin walks in. It's like they've all been punched in the solar plexus simultaneously the rage the resentment so those to be there eddie does three hours audience hypnotized by this man at the end of one of his. Like three hour sets the whole audience. I saw them get up in like go to the stage to try to touch him like he was like julius. Caesar i've never see hypnotized the crowds man and like for better for worse. Okay but the reality of it was. There's nothing you could do see wanted eddie griffin to work out and now it's just the way it was gonna be and again like method or madness will never know but i think she had a philosophy of. Yeah it sucks. It sucks doesn't it. Yeah. this is hard isn't it. it's fucking hard. Maybe you should quit.

"All my core is so good to see you buddy. We're in asheville north carolina. Who thought you. And i last time i saw you was the back bar at the comedy store and i don't think you moved here yet. Oh no that was. That was the that was the before times like we would have these conversations after our shows we always great chats back bar and then the world fell apart. I relocated not seen you since the world fell. Haven't seen me for. This is the first live podcast. I d. h. In well over a year and it is tricky man. I gotta tell you a little tricky for me. Just because i've gotten so used to looking at a screen conference i hate. I don't hate zoom. But i it's it's been a necessity in our time. Yeah but it's kept a lot of people connected and you know and you know. I just know secret that i'm sober. And it's like and zoom meetings. Yeah have just been amazing. Yeah that that parts. That part actually like better. Because you know if you're sitting in a in a meeting you can look at your phone. You can't do that in person. Is there a difference. You think though you feel like there's something more mystical person. i've found out too. that was my superstition. As far as like podcasting goes i taught. You must be in person. There's no way it's going to translate and people aren't going to like it as much if i do remote podcast and i think people are a little forgiving right now because they understand the situation. But that's cool that it's it didn't make much of a different. I mean it's obviously. I mean i think there there's a threshold. I think there's a time for a long time. You're like oh well you know. It's great because i don't have to be around this or i don't have to do that so it's very Carved by love your dog and it'd be annoying for the whole hour. I don't care that's annoying to me. That's loving so. But i do think it. It comes a point in time where you're like. I just want to see people. I want to hug people i wanna know i wanna do something and i think everybody i think we all get you get that if you wanna call cabin fever because i got that too i got that man. Where were you did you stick it out in la holy shit. I was going back and forth between l. a. And i had gotten a place in charlotte. Okay so far from from here and but charlotte's the big city compared to ashville. So yeah that's how small ashland's tiny tiny and when we say the last conversation we had you're talking you're talking about living in charlotte and i was listening to you and thanking god. That sounds so nice. Like i love. La but it would be cool to have a place up in the mountain. I was even bitching. Because i was like man. I can't afford a house in la like if you for the amount of money it costs to get a nice house here. You can get a two bedroom one bathroom or something really. Oh my gosh rules not cheap though. Now it's not cheap but it's cheaper than la well every ev- almost every places. Yeah yeah for sure. But i do think that if there's anybody here that are real. Estate investors are thinking investing real estate I think i think the one thing about buying real estate in a place like los angeles. Is it appreciates faster. Yeah right and you you're to get more out of you're to get more out of it right so you buy something in la in five years. It's going to be worth quite a bit more than something. You bought nashville in five years right now. What's so weird is in asheville. There's it's actually it's comparable because what's happening is people are pouring out of poor elladas. La you especially now with the second wave that's to waive the dell because people are just starting to come back there. Were like fuck we did it. It's over the test that you take the tests they destroyed. Apparently the company just destroyed a shit ton tasks like it's done we're done and then delta variant and now there's the lambda variant so we're going to go through the whole fraternity of of cove of names so so yes if people are pouring out of the cities but you you you have to stop your house in charlotte charlotte still have my place in la. I go back and forth okay. He's still not. Yeah but but i have. But i i you know i go back to la and it's comedy stores reopened and You know there you know. It's it's not the same you know. it's changed obviously. A lot of people have left. yeah and But it still is still great. I mean i think back to. I mean i've known you for twenty years and because you were working you were the town coordinator talent coordinator at the comedy store under mitzi. Yeah under the rain under the reign of myth of mitzi tight leash but you were such. I just loved you so much but even still do but but back then you were so cool to me. Because i was a new comic and back. Then people weren't really nice to newer comics. Oh god those are the hazing days where the hazing day. Yeah and i never worked at the store. So i didn't i i had you know i had outside sources of income so i was working doing stuff and so i didn't have to work didn't come in the door. The door guy. You know that kind of thing and so usually people are very nice to you when you're not in you're not part of that clan now and you were very nice to me and back then you had to in order to get past at the store for to come and do a show in front of twenty people because that's what it was like back that the dark days and i was doing adam barnhart sunday night show upstairs okay so i was doing that every sunday night with a great show great show and so i was doing that and i would see you all the time and i would come in and sign up for the friends and family things on sundays and mondays and it wasn't friends and family back. Then it was open mic. But if you knew someone you could get in. Because it was like ari or steve or somebody who was hosting and that it was going. Yeah well i'll put you. And and you got me showcase you would get me. You did the showcase list. Yeah for mitzi and and you have to be recommended you have to be. Recommended isn't one. How many was it why. It's one right so paid regular has to call and recommend you for showcase. That was the rule back then to rule their rule was paid regular. Calls you up. And it's like i'm recommending court for a showcase and so then you i would pull out this like notebook of like just that went on and on and on of names of people waiting for showcase. 'cause it wasn't like mitya's doing them every sunday some sunday. She would do them a lotta time. She would just cancel. Yeah so it was like maybe two a month. Maybe maybe so that fucking list man. That was a long way and she didn't pass people very often. So i was very rare. So if you didn't get passed on your first showcase you had to wait six months to come back in for the next one. That's right and you were so cool. Because i remember get past the first time. I didn't get past the second time but the second time.

The entire system may begin to undergo a change. Change always begins within. How'd you feel about this. I'm a little speechless. But it's a crisis and i think that It really is a crisis. And you're speaking not just to me but to others that are here and and i think that we need to do this in all aspects of of medicine so if i can help so thank you for giving me the the push. My question concerns the cultivation of virtue. I hear many traditions speak about cultivating loving kindness cultivating compassion. I heard you say that. Loving kindness comes naturally out of presents. So can we cultivate virtues. Like you practice you practice. then you become it. The tom tends to be used. A lot in bodies teachings the cultivate cultivating j-o-s-e so in buddhism list of mars. Things that you i only know the essential bodies mccown remember the long lists that you get in buddhism of heroes and so on i know the the basic thing which i undoubtedly is what the buddha taught is the origin of suffering and the way beyond suffering. It's the buddha think the longer lists compiled to later stage by monks who wanted to make things more understandable and accessible to other monks but they were not fully present when they did these long lists. But that's okay so ultimately of course it is better that somebody should at least attempt to cultivate the various by choose the primary one in christianity..

"Katie mccown. welcome to the by his grace. Podcast i am so excited that you are here with me today friend. I met you at the she laughs. Conference that you started. And i know that you just wrote a new bible study you know bible study author myself and a bible study nerd it so i was super excited to invite you on the show to talk about that but also to kind of focus on when we're chasing our dreams and stepping out to serve the lord how we can live in faith over fear so you do all kinds of things your wife and mama and so i just wanted to start off by kind of introducing yourself to the audience and got into writing and speaking and working for the proverbs thirty one team and all the things that you do so welcome to the show. Let us in on your story katie. Thank you so much for having me misty. And i just love this topic of conversation and i'm so excited that i get to share what i hope will be encouraging to your listeners. Because i think it's such an important thing for us to talk about because a lot of times we'll step out at to follow god's call and then when we encounter things that might make us afraid they might make us question that call. We don't know what to do and we don't even know if we should say anything about it. So this is such a great conversation. But yes hi. I'm katie mccowan and i remember meeting you at that conference and i was just so thrilled that you came and introduced yourself that you had even come up for the conference and it's a lot of fun to watch god has done in your life since then and so yes. I am a mother of six and right now my children range range in age from or strayed ninth grade so we started with a high school or this year. and then it's really such a funny We just left like kindergarten and preschool years and then we started high school years so much activity so much fun and i am afraid to my husband of almost seventeen years now which sounds so long. I can't believe we've been married that long. It doesn't feel like it lou played. Nfl football for thirteen of our seventeen years of marriage and so during that time we lived a life where we moved really at least a dozen times in that thirteen years. So i learned a lot about loading u-haul tracks to do it and how to do and it was a really interesting lives a lot of uncertainty because we never knew how long we would be somewhere and there was not a lot of opportunity to really plant rates and we were having the children in the middle of all of those years and so We had all of our children during his playing days and then he retired and we moved back to his hometown in east texas during his playing days. The also home schooled children so we had them with us twenty four seven and were teaching men and trying to get them to sit still long enough to learn their abc's Just normal everyday step figuring out how to keep clean clothes on people. And and i will tell you what is so sweet is that it was during those days with everybody at home all of the time moving every six months or so it seems it was during those days that god in my heart at that he had slain for me to write bible study at the tot and i didn't know it was a bible study. I just am a a little bit about that. A bat idea that god was saying he has a plan for me to write something and in a honestly during a lot of those years. I look at those as just years. That god was teaching me years. That god is shaping me and molding me where i was getting to know him so much better and it was a lot of i. Guess what you'd call ordinary just regular everyday things cleaning up spills and doing laundry and and wiping tears and cleaning boo boos and all of those things but they really very very instrumental years to my spiritual growth and and to learning and getting to know about my savior in ways that i had not known him before those years of being a young mother and a young white and and so you asked how in the world did i start this journey of writing and advocating a writer for poverty thirty one and it really was not one one thing happened and all of these other things followed it was really just a the rhythm of walking daily with the lord and sometimes it felt really mundane and and i and sometimes i had these moments i remember. I put the kids to bed. And i was standing in the kitchen after. Pick the kids in bed and it really. I describe it. Like i felt like god. Just dropped his idea into a heart because it kind of came out of nowhere and it was the idea for the she last conference and i was like okay. You know where did that. Come from that it was just in the rhythms of regular life. They godwit and speak little whispers here and there and and writing was something that i had done for a long time. I journalism was by major in college. Like i said. I never imagined writing bible study a but writing west something that i had been trained in and and so when i had my little ones. I would write a weekly column for luke's hometown paper just because i enjoyed writing and then we kept having kids and time became smaller and smaller. I actually stopped writing that call again just in the in the rhythms of everyday life we had a bible study a women's bible study for the the wives and girlfriends of one of the teams that we were on it. I'm going to be honest with you. I was kind of in place in life where i was just kind of over it. We had moved again. And i had my fifth child and i was really felt like i was kind of in the weeds. Lie and i didn't feel like going to the bible study and i kind of made up my mind but i just wasn't going to do it as stay my house to take care of my kids and get through the football season that year and the chaplain or that teen. His whites showed up at my door. That bible study doing next door by the way. Thanks i really had no excuse. Ceo's okay fine. I'll go to the bible steady but that bible study is what introduced me to proverbs thirty one because i honestly i listened. This has been a few years ago. So it's not as bad as it would be if it were to date but i had no idea what proverbs thirty one ministers. Let's so i mean it's been at least seven years okay. So it was a little while ago. I didn't know lisa truckers. I didn't know proverbs thirty. I didn't know anything about the. She speaks conference that they do for writers and speakers but found out about it in that bible study and and then i went to a she speaks conference and then i joined a writing community online and then i volunteered to edit for their divisionals and became a devotional right and then i became a first five writer and then i read your bible study and i just summarize isolate seven to ten years for you right but it was just one little step at a time and and i would i would say it was really just investing right where god put me in the moment and trusting that the next step was there and he would show it to me at at.

Y'all before the conference was over. Everyone wanted to know when we would host the next event with so much excitement that we decided to sell early. Bird tickets to our twenty twenty one conference. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to plan a live event when the whole world is locked down by a virus well as the year progressed. I was eager to plan a twenty twenty one event but there were many unknowns and i couldn't move forward with plans until the lord gave me peace to move forward after almost a year of dreaming planning and praying. I got the green light to move forward with spark twenty twenty one media conference. Y'all i am so excited to announce that spark has partnered with the national religious broadcasting this year to host its twenty twenty one event at the nrp's convention in grapevine.

Mccown reached out to me and she asked me to prepare a message for her lead. Her conference the first message. I prepared was that even though the struggle was real that god was there with a us a few months later we were still in the midst of the pandemic. Gina reached out to me again and ask me to prepare another message this time. I prepared a message about walking in faith over fear because i saw so many people who were being plagued by fear as a believer over and over in scripture. We read that. We are commanded to not be afraid. Not only that. But in the book of proverbs it tells us that we can laugh at the future. Which is why. I was so excited to invite my friend and fellow bible study author katie mccown. To by his grace to share her thoughts about confidently walking in faith now. Katie is home schooling. Mother of six.

"Hope You're Friday's going great got Tim Anderson. I want to share that was from later in the show yesterday. It was a surprise guest with us, too. With R B I baseball 21 coming out when we got here that zips sound of some football chatter right there. Gentlemen, there's only one coaching job left open. It is the Houston Texans. It is still open. But according to Tom, Hello, Sarah. The NFL network with all eyes on the Texan's head coaching search. The team conducted interviews today with former NFL head coach Jim Caldwell and longtime NFL quarterback Josh McCown. How about that little Joshie football? All right. So Watson's getting traded, right? He's supporting his way out. Just Josh is one of my favorite guys in football. Is he Does he live in Houston now? No, he lives in Carolina. I think he coaches his son's football team I thought was any heat, though traded or something that they release him where it gets, wasn't he? Sort of with the Texans examine the covert quarterback? He was gonna be a nice idea. Everyone went down. Here's what pal Sarah's second Tweet, says Josh McCown is strong leadership traits and intends to get into coaching. Eventually. He's been rumored as a possible NFL head coach during previous stops, but his plan has been to watch his son play high school, A sons play high school football, then the next in the next few years, and obviously This would change his plan, though, if he got his coaching job I love Josh and I think Josh will eventually be a now outstanding football coach is hard to go from the gridiron to the sidelines. Go from being a quarterback to a head coach. It's just hard to do that, right? Like I don't know. Look, Shawn McVeigh was how young when he took over now. You coached for many years showing Faye was Josh McCown played. Yeah, but like Cha McVeigh was a coach for years before he became a head coach. So you believe that they do have two. Most coaches need to. Yeah, I think yeah. I think anybody needs to go and be part of the The apparatus before they become the captain of the ship. They need to go through some some one of the process. I think. I mean, I think it's You imagine like Cutler's his quarterbacks, coach? Quality control coach? No, no Cheap matches. J. J won't get out of the deer stand long enough to do that. I'm the Shawn Watson. The text goes in today. Trade me. The text goes in right now as much betrayed me. Yes, well, you wanted that's got to discredit Josh. It's not true that while you're sitting here is not tired yet. Yeah, that And also Jim Caldwell should be a head coach in the last. Well, he got a raw deal into choice. Yeah. No, Jack. All of our jokes are directed at Josh McCown, not Jim Caldwell because he should still be eco. Jim Caldwell got a very bad deal. Amazing. She's going back to New England. By the way more. We don't need me to do what to the trust tree. He's going to assist the Patriots coaching staff in a variety of roles. Well, because right now what his son Belichick son is like co defensive coordinator, right? Yeah, And there's a former player that I forget who it is one of their their accomplished library. Is it Is it Giraud Mayo, who is their defensive coordinator as well? I think that there is somebody who it sounds right why I had a good spin as a player who is That's the That's kind of the natural progression is that if you want to be a coach, and I think one day Josh could probably be a fantastic coach, but you have to go through process to the chaplain's their vice president right now. Okay? Yeah, but that's not in Houston's different. Yeah, I know that they're not the model franchise when it comes to that. About what that's what that's who we're talking about here, though, aren't we in Houston? How about Houston? Like they may hire that? I don't know who they're gonna hire. I'm just telling you, I I don't think that that's the right path for those who don't know the guy who is the vice president right now. On runs. The team is a guy who used to be New England's chaplain, and then he left New England. Any was with Houston, and then he was elevated the vice president of the team. Yeah, that's a weird situation, so we're there is some several articles out there. I want to get to this while because we're up against the clock. Um Tim Anderson joined us yesterday. He's outstanding. He's going to be on the cover of R B I baseball 21. The white sacks now are one of the favorites in the American League. And the first thing that we asked him, like many football players, you know, aren't happy with the mad and rating. I asked him, Anderson if he's happy with his RB, I 21 rating. Yeah, definitely. You know the ranking. Don't matter. I know how good I am and realize how good are you so if you for someone who hasn't seen you play Yeah. How would you describe your game right now? Almost palpable. Who will stop me? You know, I'm just I'm I'm a problem. I'm a proud nomads, but honestly, no. Honestly, I just, You know, Madame I just work. It just worked at it day in day out, man. I'm just obsessed with, you know, continue to get better on and off the field. Um, And then I just, you know, just learning myself learning my swing, and I understand, you know? No, I know what I'm doing in the box, or, you know whatever it is Just mostly had an understanding on it. And you know that Once you understand you're gonna you're gonna take the confusion out of anyone taking frustration out of it, and they just build have fun with it. Regardless of what the results are you can you can hear the excitement level in your voice right now. How excited are you about what has transpired as a team? In this off season and your enthusiasm about what's to come in the 2021 season. No, definitely, You know, excited. Um, you could see it. Um, you know, it's been talked about for over the past years to finally be able to get to this point. Um, is definitely you know great. Um, but, you know, We remember what opened felt like last year s so that I think that's enough. They should make everybody hung enoughto continue to go out and try to deliver what you know what the ultimate goal is. Is the World Series. How much contact have you had with your new manager, Tony LaRussa. I'm not a little contact. You know, he takes back and forth. We talk in there. So you know, I'm definitely, you know. Good. Good contact. You know him until you know what way have on the table. Was there any apprehension when when you first heard that he was the manager? The house.

From throat singing carols to Nerf gun hunting: How Indigenous people are celebrating the holidays

"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

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.

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?

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

How to monetize and tokenize data Insights from Ocean Protocol

"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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

This 7 year old dog whisperer will melt your heart

"Let's talk about Roman mccown. Okay. So here's a kid seven years. Let me just let me reiterate eighty seven years old seven years old. Whereas he's wearing glasses which. Doesn't need. He wears them for fashion, suspenders and a bow tie. And he is on a mission to rescue to place every single dog in America in a home every kennel dog every shelter dog. He wants a home for those dogs and seven years old. And if you can do it by being cute that kid is going to do it. Because my goodness. Is anyone a huge ward by the ASPCA? He did he did. And he's already placed thirteen hundred dogs. It's unbelievable. He's like sometimes you, you know, a little girl comes on. And she sings the fifty state song were Sophia Grayson Rosie come on, and they sing Nicki Menaj song in one sings in one dozen and they're super cute. And you know, you know, they're going to outgrow that. Yeah. I get the sense that this kid is going to be a zealot yet for for rescuing animals for the rest of his life. And he's going to be the cutest damn rescue. Where every seven years old. That's the part. That's amazing. Seven awesome little. Outfit. You've got to see it. Check out the show. Sweet. We are going to do more with that kid. Yep. Yeah. For sure. And here's Ellen asking him. Why he does it? All right. Well, I love what you did. So congratulations for winning. How did you feel when you one I felt very excited and? Tons of other happy things. Yeah. Lots of happiness inside. So you're seven years old. Yes. 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. There's all these videos that you've made with all these dogs. And so you go to the shelter and make the videos. Yes, Lee we made the videos for the Gog. So they can get it adopted. Right. And then do you only do dogs or other animals their animals because I actually have once made a video of Guinea pig. A really was Niblett Niblett ended did Niblett get adopted. He got a home as fast as it Dogwood. Oh, that's fantastic. I love that. You're doing this. You know that because I love animals and I loved that. Someone your age already is starting to care about animals because there's a lot of animals and Chiltern that need homes right now hands of animals right now. Yeah. A lot of them. So why do you love helping animals so much? What what is it about animals? Well, I love helping animals because well, they get a life in a kennel what kind of life. This is that it's not a good one. No. And they offer so much love don't they they make you feel happy. They make you feel like you're houses complete with what they dialed or your family's complete. Yeah. I know I sometimes look at kids that don't have pets in their homes, and I'm thinking that's not right. They should grow up with pets. Everybody should have a pet. 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.

Italy Sees Peace Deal With EU as Commission Meets on Budget

"It looks like ACL and the European Commission a found a way to work together. Hi garrett. Seems that today we're going to get the details from the European Commission on these budget, and basically how it can avoid putting them under this thing that excessive deficit procedure, which is basically sanctions against rhyme. Now, if you remember not so long ago when Italy kind of took its budget spending plan to the European Commission. They basically said no this Mark fresh breaking our rules. They had a plan to increase spending a lot increase the country's budget deficit. And they basically said, well, we need to do this to grow economy. This is the way to do it. But I really didn't like the standoff between. In brussels. It was saying, you know, really you can't do this. You're gonna add to your debt Powell, this'll be really, really bad view. And when feeding on the other side to that and say often quite a lot about it, musty very public fighting. It seems that finally it's possible that there is some sort of deal between between these two and that's good from kitchen. It does a lot of stuff that people are worried about at the moment in the global economy as this. This does take down one of these things people told him at ace. It is had been told them. It actually is potentially the next Greece and a much bigger economy than Greece. But do we do we know exactly at this stage? What agreement they've done. So it sounds like it's Lisa peak read to reduce its suppose deficit the next year. So about two percent rather than two point four percent. Which is what it was going to be an appoint is that it means that it's no increasing its underlying start to deficit that was going to add to it add to step policy seems that they've made some concessions in that way, part of the problem is that it seems they've just delayed some of the plan. Some of the spending plans likely to go into effect later than suggestive. So it doesn't necessarily mean that we're not going to hear about this again. But it's taken off some of the pressure of the now, I think part of the reasons probably that obviously the riots a protesting happened in FRANZ mccown government that has had to say Bagger into increase spending in very important for Brussels to not look like, it's favoring one country abor another. So it's best to get as many as much of this result as quietly as possible Rama than kind of cool is more into your fighting cheater,
