Phoenix Suns complete trade to acquire Chris Paul from Oklahoma City Thunder
"Right welcome back. Look who's here perk with us Stephen i'm going to start with you on this one. If the nets do get hardened do they need to win the title. This season having this type of talent downright without question. And i'm gonna tell you why because the pressure is going to be immense first of all your k. d. Obviously everybody's looking at you comparing you to lebron and stuff like that Lebron goes and he assembles a big three. Then ultimately you want up to him and went to golden state and gave the ultimate big three. Lebron sits up de a d. is now in. La so you go to brooklyn you got kyri and then you get a james heart so the pressure will be immense on him. This guy read because of all the things that max has titillated throughout the years and to a lesser degree kendrick perkins when you talk about the lack of leadership there kyri urban may have shown from time to time. He elected to leave cleveland. The go to boston. The situation in boston didn't work out. He goes to brooklyn the only place. Twenty games helped was an issue and all of that stuff plus. He made some headlines. That's an issue. And then you've got james hearted remember. James harden didn't want the white how houston Ultimately he didn't want chris paul in houston and then obviously even though again and kendrick perkins knows this far better than me because he has those relationships with these guys. In particular russell westbrook russell westbrook made sure to reiterate to me. Listen his relationship. With james harden is as is big tom their brothers and they're gonna always be brothers. We did not talk about basketball. Just a relationship that he has with james harden which also articulated over social media. I by the way his relationship with james harden they are brothers and they are tight but that doesn't mean they want to play together so as a result of that rests with westbrook is planning on moving on as a result of him. Moving on james harden is moving on. And so there's going to be some pressure to bear because with all of this money that harden and k. d. and career getting paid along with the expectations. Let's bring in the last element you in brooklyn. New york utah. You're even denver. You're in the mecca the media capital. Now obviously the knicks are in new york city madison square. Got it but we should all be allergic to mentioning championship protection at a new york. Nixon brett at least at this moment atop the faith man leon roads and we'll worldwide west but the bottom line is is blasphemous sacrilegious to talk championships. And and the knicks but brooklyn fall weighs less than ten miles is less than ten miles away. It's still a part of brooklyn one of the five boroughs and there is going to be are meant pressure on manse. If the three of them larry know why go give it their. Kp might be right about this guy at five in milwaukee we might see silly. Do some things we know. Lebron is at whatever but if those three assemble no one is going to be interested in any stupendous as to why they did not win after three guys. You damn right. They need to win the chip because the world the world will be watching. First of all brooklyn is even thirstier for a championship. And i think is a bigger deal than a team winning in manhattan in the sense that brooklyn hasn't had a championship in sixty five years. Since the dodgers left brooklyn in fifty seven but they want and fifty five to go to air like that. But the knicks. You're right it's been almost forty eight years for the knicks but brooklyn is the nets or the team in new york. The knicks don't even exist compared to the nets right now and let me say this. There is immense pressure for them. To win you're right stephen while they're together i'm here saying it doesn't need to be in the first year for example if hardened goes to brooklyn and they lose in the finals and a tough series to the lakers. A team like that. It's all right but they have to win while they're together. Even this year's lakers team. I didn't pick them because it's hard to just throw a team together with guys have been played together. Get all the complimentary pieces right. Get it all right to go all the way. We saw that with lebron and his return to. Cleveland went to a game six of course they had injuries on that team. But that's part of it is coming off the catastrophic injury and we saw it again a result before that when lebron showed up miami with the big three it some it takes some times a year to get it right with guys playing together so i would say while there's enormous pressure for them to win while they're together because k. d. if he's most of themselves even is an mvp caliber player so is hardened and kyri may not be an mvp but he's more than just an all star he's all star plus you have to. Mvp caliber players an all star. And then some you're supposed to win a championship to gather. I don't think it has to be in the first year. And i wouldn't say that it's the kind of pressure for example when katie went to golden state. It's like there was more downside. Like guys you have to win it. If you don't win a championship that sorry i wouldn't. I don't think people will be looking at this team like that. Sorry if you don't wanna chip you gotta get outta the east

The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer
"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.
What Is The Pe Diet
"Everyone is Martin from twenty minute fitness I'm here today connected with Dr Ted Niemann Dominate, and why don't you tell liberal listeners about your work and book? The P. Will Hi Martin Nice to meet you just call me Ted first of all. So I, I'm Ted name I'm a primary care doctor and I've been in practice for about twenty years up here in the Seattle area and I have a mechanical engineering background, and so I'm kind of like a just a huge Geek. A nerd kind of a Geek mechanical engineering background went to medical school and. I ended up just being obsessed with optimum health and I realized that the difference between the healthiest people I saw and the least healthy people I saw really just came down to diet and exercise. So all day long in these patient visits icy this huge spectrum of health You know one minute I might be seeing someone who has just amazing body composition and their incredible health, and they might even be an elite athlete and then the next minute I see someone who's just frail and decrepit and falling apart and has millions of problems and it eventually occurred to me. That the only difference between these people was really just diet and exercise over time, and if your diet and exercise is optimal, you just slowly get better and better over time and if it's not, you just slowly get worse and worse over time and then you know fifty years down the road you see this massive spectrum of health from incredibly healthy to incredibly unhealthy and I've just been obsessed for twenty years with exactly what is the mechanism between Diet and exercise driving health outcomes in exactly what you have to do to get the positive adaptations instead of the negative ones and I've you know I've just been all over the Diet spectrum I was raised vegetarian I went to Loma Linda University in Southern California, which is this famous blues Mecca were everyone's plant based So I've I've experimented with Air Free Diet from Vegan and plant based to, of course, oil spectrum of Paleo. Kito. Carnivora. You name it and everything in between, and then I eventually realized that all of these diets right about something and the answer is in between and the secret is finding out what's powering each and every one of these diets and making them more successful than. The Standard. American. Diet and that's really how I came up with this book. The P.. E. Diet, which is sort of the unified theory of macronutrients You know that's at least it has been described right so so how does like the P. E. Diet look in a nutshell what makes it different from say pay euro at the Ketogenic diets or you know all vegetarian diet for example. So what I did is just zoom way way way way way way out to the fifty thousand foot view and just looked at what is eating and I realized that plants are. Auto troops and they make all their own food and then animals are Hetero trips and we only exist because we constantly injust other living organisms. So plants are at the base of the food chain for all animals they're making all the food for animals and then animals are just either eating plants or animals that have themselves eating plants. What plants her doing is two very specific things. Number one, they're sucking minerals out of the soil, which is nitrogen for protein and and about a dozen other minerals that are crucial for plant and animal life, and then they're using solar. Energy and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to create these high energy chains of carbons with high energy bonds, carbon hydrogen bonds, and that's all of your dietary energy either carbs, fats. This is all solar energy stored is chemical energy. So I realized that you could divide your entire diet up into protein and minerals which getting room soil and energy, which is these high energy, carbon chains, carbs, or fats that plants creating from solar energy, and then I, sort of looked at all of human history in this evolutionary Lens. I realized that if you look at hunter gatherers, they have this. Incredibly. High Protein Diet. It's thirty three percent on average protein. If you look at worldwide hundred gatherer macronutrients and hunter-gatherers, they have an easy time getting protein they just go out and kill an animal and eat the whole thing you get plenty of protein and minerals but you're always a little bit starving for energy right? Every animal you know trying to get enough energy to be successful, and so you're always looking for extra energy to add to your diet. You can get the protein and minerals, but just killing an animal and eating the whole thing but you're looking for. Extra Energy and what humans have done is we have always used technology to feed ourselves. We don't have teeth and claws were not particularly fast or strong on. But what we have is brains, and so we built tools, we use tools to feed ourselves. We use technology to feed ourselves. We had stone tools with break-up in skulls for branch and long runs for married at fat energy to our diet. We dug up tubers, add more carbohydrate energy tour Diet. We figured out how to throw weapons and create traps in hunting in groups, and we all of this technology to add. More, energy to our diet
How The Consensus Voting Mechanism Works
"So my name is Mush. Pot. Suzuki like the car last year a student at Yale University in Computer Science and mathematics and I'm supervised by Adrian Vata and from goalie. I'm very happy to be here and thank you for inviting me. I got exposed to your work. When I read the paper, I invited you to come on and talk about mostly today is how many freemasons are there consensus voting mechanisms in metric space so no less than three interesting ideas for me in the title maybe we should give some background to open up with consensus. What does that mean is that? Just the majority or how will we be using the word today? Consensus mechanism is Mecca Zeman which to select a candidate they're only if everyone agrees on it for instance, they said you're running for some group Peter, you get accepted only if everyone in the group agrees on it and you want you accepted otherwise. so that's like unanimity the Neha in here. Yeah. It's basically the same as unanimity but in different. Settings. Unanimity also implies that it's a property where you have if everyone agrees on that, you accept it but something can happen. If you know, let's say you can use different rules otherwise there's a different sort distinctions there, but it's basically the same as unanimity that particular choice leads to some interesting things and you guys are presented this really concise analogy to the freemasons. Well, I suppose getting down to the actual counter freemasons trying to conduct a census here that just formalizes. A funny title to give because as you know that freemasons are interesting sort of group there. Member only if everyone agrees on sort of it, fits our mechanisms today run their group through consensus voting Gotcha so it wouldn't surprise me if just given how much sort of folklore the surrounds the freemasons that there might be at least a few listeners confused about whether or not there are real organization. Could you throw a few facts Edis? have. Amazing temples in Montreal, phrases, I live in Montreal. So they have a huge temple here and they're very active and I don't know too much about their inner workings or I've never been inside the doors but they're very oh yeah you can go to their building for instance so real organization and in terms of getting accepted into it if I wanted to go in that building up there in. Montreal is this the actual mechanism they literally use or is this a sort of an analogy? So I don't know this for sure but I heard I read online that in order to get accepted that everyone in taboo are everyone in that group has agree on it. So is the medicine that they actually use. Cool. Well, I guess whenever that started it wouldn't be surprising that it could grow quickly. Right, if I was thinking of starting my own such organization and I I, invited my wife. Now we have two members and perhaps she and I can agree her sister joins and my sister joins. But at some point, someone's going to say no to the next member what can we learn about that and how do we study it? What are the interesting Totta questions? So you have two different settings. Here. So wondering is not remodeled people's opinions and you say I prefer my wife says I prefer my daughter you know or or so and so forth we need to the preferences of people. So one of the classic ideas in voting theory and actually just modeling through machine learning or any sort of the setting is this prioritizing people's opinion or privatizing people. So for instance, let's say you could be. Leaning like the political left or right. There's a spectrum for which you are lighted. Let's sure you can be at the centre or you could be very right thing or it could be a very level. So we can model that as any number between minus one and one, but two one being the right-wing minus one being the left-wing. So then that's one example of how you prioritize people right? Because you wanted to this rigorously and mathematically. So we need a method to represent people and our model is at. ISSUE, have this in which you represent urine. You couldn't space in some point. Is You your opinion and you vote for someone who similar to? Let's say you're very right wing than some candidate comes in then you're more likely to vote for someone who is right being than left-wing to someone who is closer to you in opinion or characteristic that's our model of but this question was asked actually before in one emissions but in one dimension. So you're basically just have an inch between minus one and one, and this was an extra Unin by very famous. Nogal. Yes. Paper in two, thousand, sixteen, two, thousand, fourteen I forget. But we did this in higher dimensions in actually specifically two dimensions because it introduces so much more complexity when you go up in a dimension, right so Francis, why do we need higher dimensions is because before you you're presenting people left and right but people are more complex than that. You can't just represent a person by just one number for instance you. have to use multiple features as people say. So you have this multiple characteristics of people and they become dimension. So we do this in two missions surprisingly the mathematical difficulty of asking this question John Huge becomes actually much more difficult in two dimension than one dish very interesting and I guess maybe the answers grounded in a lot of details. But is there an essence to what that challenges is it that there are more simulations or? Is there a complexity theory aspect of this? Why is a two dimension so much more difficult than one so for instance, if you look at random shape, you can characterize this voting as looking at something called random convex or some random shapes. The question bows down on understanding certain random shapes and here assuming that the candidates are appearing. Let's say uniformly at on interval you have existing group members and she accepts somebody then he becomes. Group member and you evolve. So the candidates are uniform at each time step and so to answer the question we knew looking at this sort of random judge shapes in one dimension there's only one shape is just an interval intimate conviction in one dimension is just an interval. Some number between attack could be minus zero point five to zero point one is, but let's say you go into the mission all of a sudden there's so Many different shapes so many different things second happen if the shape is convinced or even just not convex in two dimensions does different more complex shapes can get in one mission. You only have interested in two dimensions you have gone as you have China goals, you have something that approximates your face even that could be shade in two missions, but that's not going to happen in Wand mission
President Trump to Visit Kenosha Wisconsin After Police Shooting
"Concerned over whether President Trump scheduled visit to their city, following days of unrest over a police shooting may increase tensions. White House press secretary Kaylie Mecca Nadine minutes ago confirming the president will travel to Kenosha, but would not elaborate. If the president thinks the shooting was justified. There's a investigation ongoing. So, um, I spoke to him earlier and he was not willing to weigh in more than he had Video showing a Kenosha police officer shooting 29 year old Blake in the back.

Finding Your Balance
"Good Morning. We love and I'm here in Crystal Lake Illinois. And wanted to spend a little time with you. Hope Everyone's fine. And Hope you're. Dealing with all the different new things coming up in your life like being students online or live for a combination of the two. Or going back to work or continuing to stay home and work from home. Or looking for a job or Trying to to decide what's the next course you want to take or thing you want to learn online. We have lots of things going on these days and I hope you're finding a way to be. Peaceful with that and have Have some dispassionate equanimity could time to work on our equanimity, right? That's the quality of balance. and. Taking a step back and being able to see things. Without. So much of our self involvement being able to be a little bit dispassionate. Find Balance and everything. So I always like to think of it as back away beck away from Mecca way not not out of indifference at all but out of. That Maybe we sometimes can be too aggressively putting ourselves in the middle of a situation. Really we are more of A. We can be more of a bystander and be more valuable to people in the situation. and. You know that feeling when you when you realize oh I, wish I just kept my mouth shut and not. Made that comment on facebook or not said something that you know that that made the situation not better but probably just. kind of hit the hit something that just immediately. Created. Created. A. A little minor explosion and a conversation or relationship. And sometimes that's because we we aren't able to become have that equanimity at work. You know there's a little. There's a little bit too much of our ego in a situation. So we just need to say something that maybe probably would be better if we didn't say it. I know that's one way I look at equanimity. Does back away? Think about the situation think about it a little bit more. find her own balance with an it without getting carried away by the emotion of the moment. And we can work with equanimity in so many situations and I think it's a beautiful quality for us to develop right now. Because we have a lot of opportunities before we we feel like. We are free from the effects of the pandemic. That's going to be a long time before free from the economic effects and the psychological effects and the physical effects. The way it's changed our landscape just physically the people we've lost. Maybe the people who were recovering from covid nineteen and the the. The. The long lasting effects that they might be having to deal with and how it affects our society in the long run. So develop equanimity along with compassion and loving kindness and. I am so which is no harm. So, we can have our hands full just with. seeing how we can those are the best ways we can be people in this world is to work on those qualities work on a deeper understanding of yourself. And then that's what it all comes back to because we have to know. What our little triggers are we have to know. We have to know about ourself. and. Then we can be more effective in a more Compassionate person for the rest of the world. So. Let me start with my wish. And I think that's good guidance I hope everyone's memorized it. Okay. He working on it if you haven't because it can be there for you when you need it. Or. The Saint. Francis prayer. May I become at all times both now and forever. A protector for those without protection. A guy for those who have lost their way. A ship for those with an ocean to cross. A. Sanctuary for those endanger. A lamp for those without light. A place of refuge for those who like shelter and a servant to all in need. By by means of this meritorious deed, May I never join with the unwise only the wise until the time I attain the Bonna. That close to you because that gives us. Wonderful Advice. And it also gives us a challenge. You know to reach out to be to be able to. See clearly what's going on in the world where we can help

And the answer is depends on where you by. The. Angels. Petite Surat twenty seventeen, which I picked up at Costco. For Nine Ninety nine. You go elsewhere. Check the Internet out and it's selling for twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, five. So it's like this is a ten dollar wine or is this the upscale wide? It's a petite derived from the Red Hills Aba in lake. County Lake County is due north of Napa Valley. And it's On the end of clear lake up there up about two thousand feet or more.

Amazon Thinks It Will Need More — Not Fewer — Offices In Big Cities

Very different, symbolic hajj in Saudi Arabia amid virus
"News. The annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia is underway with drastically reduced numbers because of the corona virus pandemic this year, only around 10,000 people, all of them Saudi residents will perform the five day ritual always screened and quarantined in advance. Our religious affairs editor Martin Bashir, reports. Last year, more than two million Muslims circled the Kaaba in Mecca, the most sacred site in Islam. But in June, the Saudi Arabian government announced that no foreigners would be allowed to perform the hajj. And that residents aged over 65 or with chronic illness should also not attend the restrictions of not only impacted worshippers. They've also hit the kingdom's income. The hardest Saudis second largest source of revenue after oil, contributing around $12 billion
Very different, symbolic hajj in Saudi Arabia amid virus
"News. The Corona virus strikes again. The huh, JJ, which starts tomorrow will not allow the normal gathering of more than two million Muslims. The annual pilgrimage to Mecca is known for teeming masses of people who walk closely together, sit shoulder to shoulder to pray. And often campout and crowded tents. But this year, only an estimated 1000 people are expected to attend. Physical distancing will be enforced and masks will be required. Bloomberg's Saudi Arabia correspondent. Vivian Knee Rhyme has been covering How, huh, JJ will be different this year. She joins us Now. Welcome. Hi. Thank you so much for having me. Can you just start out by reminding us what the religious significance of the Hodges for Muslims all around the world, So the Hodja is one of the most important act that any Muslim might perform in their life. It is considered to be one of the five pillars of Islam. It is actually obligatory for every Muslim to perform the hajj once in their life, if they're able to financially and physically, so it's something that people save up for and apply for again year after year. Well, because the Saudi government is determined to make sure people are physically distanced. This year. You estimate that only about 1000 people will be in attendance tomorrow. So how are these 1000 people selected like where they from? Yeah, So one thing that had been a little bit strange that the government has been a little bit secretive about what the actual number is this year, the hedge minister has said it's between around 1000 and 10,000. We do think it's going to be probably closer to around 1000 and that includes about 30% Saudi nationals, and the other 70% are foreign citizens who reside already in Saudi Arabia, so nobody will be performing. The hajj is here coming from outside of the kingdom. They were selected through an online betting system. Most of it was about health criteria. You had to be between the ages of 20 and 50. You had to not have any chronic diseases. So everybody who was selected among the pilgrims did get a PCR test for Corona virus, and then they were isolated during a home quarantine for about a week. After which they travel to Mecca, and they've been in a hotel quarantine sort of isolated individual hotel rooms for about four days now, so they haven't even really met each other. For the most part, they communicate over WhatsApp, you know, they get their meals, the room service. It's a very different experience than it would be in a normal year when you're kind of a human sea of people from all over the world, gathering and eating and praying together. Besides, they're being dramatically fewer people this year. How do you think the high judge will feel different compared to years past? Well, I think it's just a completely different animal in a lot of ways. I mean, normally a huge part of going to Mecca and performing the pilgrimage is just that rubbing shoulders with people from all different social classes and all different nationalities. Obviously, that physical closeness has completely gone, so there's going to be social distancing markers around the Grand Mosque to ensure that people are actually you know, 1.5 meters apart, so that's a very big deal. There's also a point in the pilgrimage win. Welcome to be gathering pebbles, small stones along the route that they throw at thes three stone pillars that symbolize kind of repelling of evil, and these pebbles this year will be distributed to them in pre sealed packets, and they're sterilized, So it's a very different kind of feel there. They're also wearing these tracking bracelets insure that they complied with the quarantine, and if they stray more than a certain distance from their phone kind of urges them to reconnect to their Bluetooth, a lot of technology that's infusing this year's hajj in order to Kind of enforced that social distancing and make sure that the House doesn't become a super spreader event because Saudi Arabia, like a lot of other countries, has had a couple of different peaks of Corona virus cases, which are now on the decline and Mecca at one point was really the epicenter of Saudi

Every Muslim. is to make a pilgrimage to Mecca once in their life while they're pilgrims will spend a lot of their time in the Grand Mosque a massive facility that covers over four hundred thousand square feet. It's a sanctuary where violence even in its smallest form is forbidden. So as you can imagine, many of the pilgrims were there in the mosque on the morning of November twentieth. Realize just how serious the situation was. Most people were horrified by what had happened. Most people that were inside the mosque were besides themselves. This is Joe Keshishian senior fellow at the king. Faisal. Center for Research and Islamic Studies and Joe says as the rebels delivered their manifesto. Chaos erupted in the mosque. The militants had blocked all of the gates to prevent hostages from getting out. Once, the chaos I down there were tens of thousands of pilgrims trapped in the mosque, being controlled by hundreds of armed gunmen. Initially there wasn't a major response from local authorities. It appeared as though the entire city was in shock. But at this point, you might be asking who is Joe Hayman. What motivated him? and. How did he end up? Staging this attack? Before we answer any of that, we have to go over some basics about Saudi Arabia and get a sense for what was happening there in the years leading up to nineteen, seventy nine. These are the treasure houses of an ancient desert kingdom, a land, the size of western Europe. Where the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is named after the family of God starting in the eighteen hundreds they try to unite Bedouin tribes to take control of the peninsula. They captured lost control of some parts of Arabia, but never fully controlled it for long periods of time. But after generations of struggle, they were finally able to become rulers of Arabia in nineteen, thirty, two after the fall of the Ottoman. Empire they established a country and named it after themselves, and by controlling Islams to holiest cities, Mecca and Medina, they became credible remains shetty fan in Arabic, which means the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and incredible responsibility. But in order to achieve this position, the house events, our would enlisted. The help of conservative Muslim fighters called the when. Others. The Hawaiian were followers of the WAHABBI interpretation of Islam. What hobbies reject any attempts to modernize a slum and proselytize and often historically inaccurate puritanical view. Their religious fanaticism made them extremely effective soldiers for the Saudi army. The country that the Saudi family controlled was poor and extremely underdeveloped. Most people lived as they had for centuries, but in nineteen, thirty eight, a major resource was discovered in Saudi Arabia. Polio. Land of little water and too much oil that would probably described the dilemma of which is only just realizing its importance in the twentieth century, those tragedy by the late nineteen seventies, oil revenues meant that the kingdom will slowly, but surely modernizing was developing was opening up to the outside world.

Economic progress in the country wasn't happening everywhere and many small towns and villages, Bedouin didn't always have the same access to resources as their fellow city-dwelling citizens. So, many of the man who fit in that second group, felt not only disgusted by the modernization in the country, but they also felt left behind by it in a monarchy obviously They're always injustices We're not talking about a democracy or a democratizing society, so they're always individuals that are left out of the system and one young Bedouin.

K. that sales are just exploding a Chinese coffee company they just putting them everywhere but the big key is relative strength where's the strength what is the real powerful recently it's been Tesla thanks a lot and I must tell you I sort break out at three hundred and sixty miles away do I trust this dude what the five hundred Bucks now it's pulling back because it's just too expensive and actually gapped up at around three hundred and you know I love gaps on earnings but the earnings with down their revenues were down but they said some things about a future orders so we've had this rally and I said to you yesterday and and it's getting frothy if we start pulling back on we just so happen to start pulling back today we'll do market wrap in a little bit what do I do what's the tactics first and foremost what's a bearish because those are my sh those are ones I look the short five point oh sure short for clients but we get a bear market and we're not the bear market by the way so we told you about roku that was had a it was bearish already while the market's been in the same and then we'll just start measuring we'll just start measuring in measuring in measuring and also my list now will be the really strong underneath that the strong strong then the strong and and basically how we measure that taught how do you know it's not actually by percentages but that'll be part of it is just how stretched away from their recent move this broke out at one forty it's one seventy Dan and then I'll start looking at we're moving averages are why because if we're going to correct in the in a more meaningful fashion the real strong will only pull back to maybe the ten day maybe the twenty one day strong will pull back to the twenty one day maybe the fifty day I just remember that's just price the fifty day moving average of the last fifty days ended up divided by fifty and these are just places where stocks in a bullish market will pull back to and then rally so that's going to be this weekend I already did a bunch of it today throughout the day I will go to the market wrap on the second but you know we've been telling you the software names have been emerging on the right side even with the market down today they were hardly down today and a bunch of a green inspired by the market being down today this name this name this they these things were green and then there's the road crews of the world and if anything was underneath the roku that was already bearish what about things that were stronger than roku but really they just been sitting they've only been sitting what happens with those wealth the only been sitting when the market's been strong they may be vulnerable also and I must tell you I was in one I'm not going to mention what a name but I sold out with just a couple of percent today on something that was in pull back mode and really look good especially yesterday it came off of the moving averages until they they just redid it so tells me you have to do more of a meaningful pull back people have a better opportunity and that's how we do things and this week it will be a little bit more arduous weekend will be a little more arduous than others will probably do some double takes but we love pull back because we're going to really be able to isolate the big big strength so hopefully that helps a little bit now of course if you own coca Cola for forty years you don't give a crap about what we're talking about right now and we wouldn't blame me Boeing more crap coming out more emails between workers let.

"As word of the siege began seeping out of Mecca. The Saudis realize they needed ended quick and to do that they had to stage an actual full-scale military assault but remember it's forbidden in a Slob to commit acts the violence in Mecca so the Saudis needed a religious decree or fatwa from the Kingdom's clergy or ulema to go ahead with the assault. So they the need fatwa From the religious authorities would authorize the operation and the fatal wasn't forthcoming because Luther. She's one at the extract a price for it. Okay so remember shift Bin Baz Joe. Hayman's teacher the guy who helped get his men out of jail. So Shaping Baz was the Dean Dean of the Adversity Islamic University of Medina. So he was probably the most respected scholar at the time and the want whom their Aurigny it felt like they had to listen. After days of frustration the Saudi King Collared Some Unshaven Baas and the leading members of the Ulama to the capital for a sit down and it was a very difficult meeting because bin Baz and the others were saying. Well you know there are problems uh-huh in our country now all this. The morals are very lose. His soul is forbidden. Things happening must do something about what were the specific demands but the the demands were for example more restrictions on women's rights. But most importantly what they wanted is that they wanted to burst out of Saudi Arabia. Because they had this global mission of Dowa of spreading the view of Islam to the rest of the misguided to Muslim nations and And they needed the backing of the Saudi state for that. The support of the Saudi government allowed the Lama to open schools mosques and charities all all around the Muslim world from Nigeria to Indonesia. We have to stop for a second here and emphasize the importance of this moment. Up until nineteen nineteen seventy-nine. They had made a very specific arrangement. Deal with the religious establishment. There is no interference in each other's business. The Saudi's feared that this arrangement could be in jeopardy if the Allama were able to extract these new demands but Joe says even knowing the risks. There really weren't many options for King holid- and the Royal Family. He had no choice but to acquiesce to the demands. This was a great bargain between the Obama and and House of Sodium which they said Okay we will support you and is critical moment. We will authorize the military operation in holiest on his this but in exchange you know you will allow us to use the resources of the Saudi state to further our cause throw the Muslim on Muslim nation. where the clerics involved at all in orchestrating this siege I have seen no evidence that the activity and apt this by the surgeon took advantage of this To further their own ninety S. It took took three days for the clerics dependent allowing for Saudi authorities to use violence to take back the GRANDMAS ask. The Saudi forces made preparations and while the clerics have been negotiating the fatwa the Saudis had finally done another thing. They made public statements acknowledging that their own people were responsible who for the attack while the Saudis had to make this declaration because the Americans but Presi them in the US government. Saying hello. Mike you have to say it's not us and and so the House of so did make these statements and the blame miscreants this is audio of a message. Saudi authorities blasted into the mosque over loudspeakers pleading with the militants to end the takeover. It was on fire and murderous on the Muslims by these renegade. Kahan didn't end it. So within hours of the fatwa being issued the Saudi forces began their assault to take back. The GRANDMAS her server assurance conducted Saudi military brought in armored vehicles commandos and even tanks to dislodge Jon Heyman and his fighters Jay Heymann has spent the week digging in. Initially they fail but after taking heavy losses Saudi security forces finally made their way into the grandmas grounds. You had armored personnel carriers out the M one one threes driving into into the holiday precinct and firing hiring. There was a machine gun position of the rebels just behind the COBB others elliptical wall just in front of the Saudis made progress but at a very very high cost the fighting was intense and dead bodies littered the grounds of the mosque but by the end of the first week they managed to clear out the surface parts so the mosque Jehan was prepared for this. His fighters retreated along with a small number of hostages to a place beneath the Grand Mosque and Kaba for their last stand and under the mosque. there is war of Labor in Center catacombs ancient storage areas that was really hard to penetrate. Because how do you go in and sell booby-trapped the pressure with continuing to mount on the Saudis to end the siege and so They really couldn't clear it on their own and so they had to ask for help so there were two countries that That could help was the. US and was France. France Promo the. US was that after the Vietnam War after a congressional hearings and the position of restrictions on the activities Cassia and all the leaks that out The salaries digitally trust the US and so the Saudis had a very good working relationship with the French at the time because the France then was led by conservative government much more hardline than the cadre administration. They're much more WIG action. The French sent a small detachment of officers from elite counterterrorism. Force will guess the French Special Forces this proposed. Using a non lethal gas to force out your Hayman's militants was supposed to knock out the militants and then the Saudi troops in gas masks would come in and kill them or take them mount.

As the Prophet overturn to usher in the a day of Judgment Johann became convinced that his soon to be brother in law Mohammad bin Abdallah was the Mattie. She looked at him and looked at the descriptions of of how the market should look in the eighth in the sayings of Prophet Muhammed Physical descriptions the name You know it all kind of seem to match watch for him to the best of our knowledge. It appears such a Haymond genuinely believed his soon to be brother in law was the Mattie and that led him to a serious conclusion preaching and winning followers wasn't enough action needed to be taken. The Saudi government had to be removed but. Interestingly this is where he differed from other religious conservatives like his teacher shift Bin Baz NBA's really at the time endorsed a lot of the criticism the true human head against the the state of Saudi Arabia. At the time I would say well. Yes this is wrong with that is wrong also wrong but we should not Weasel Zubay the king because the king is the guarantee that our way of seeing Islam our way of doing things we preserved against the infidels. Who for the most Carla be clerics would be any other smirk ultimately? Even bin Baz is disapproval. Wouldn't be enough to sway James determination to get rid of the Saudi royal family and his ability to wage. An attack got even stronger. After he started attracting foreign followers to his movement he won followers from all all over the Middle East especially Egypt. Some of these followers had come from the Muslim Brotherhood. A well organized Islamic political machine. And so you really had this marriage of the Saudi Wahabbi zeal with Japan and the ready. meads Islamic militancy That came from Egyptian and some other foreigners who came to Saudi Arabia. So you had the the the the fusion of the theology with the organization skills skills and and violent extremism by Nineteen seventy-nine Joe Hayman's group grew to include hundreds if not thousand or more members they were motivated needed and capable of a well planned attack on the Saudi regime. Johanna and his followers had a radical idea. They were going to attack. Islam's holiest site site the Grand Mosque of Mecca which is blasphemous act but heyman came up with his own religious interpretation nation to justify it he figured it would be a strike right at the heart of Saudi legitimacy. After all if couldn't protect these holy sites should they be in charge Arja them he hoped it would gain the attention of the world and usher in Islamic revolution and the Dave judgment they planned the attack for the first day of Mahendra in the year.

Then what motivated him. And how did he end up staging this attack before we answer any of that we have to go over some basics about Saudi Arabia. And get a sense for what was happening there. In the years leading up to nineteen seventy-nine these are the treasure. Houses of an ancient distant isn't kingdom a land the size of western Europe where the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is named after the family event. Starting in the eighteen hundreds they try to unite Bedouin Edwin tribes to take control of the peninsula. They captured and lost control of some parts of Arabia but never fully controlled it for long periods of time but after generations of struggle they were finally able to become rulers of Arabia in one thousand nine hundred thirty two.

The country that the Saudi family controlled was poor and extremely underdeveloped developed. Most people lived as they had for centuries but in nineteen thirty eight. A major resource was discovered in Saudi Arabia. Oil a land of too little water and too much oil. That would probably describe the dilemma of a country. which is only just realizing its importance in the twentieth century? Those treasure by the late nineteen seventies.

So they're always individuals that are left out of the system awesome and one young Bedouin. The son of an Ecuadoran fighter felt both of these slights. His name was Joe Hayman and our Dany.
