The move comes as rates crater the yield on the ten year treasury falling to the lowest level since late february so what are yields telling us about the market here. Dan what do you think.

I feels like every night since late. March the bond market sniffed it out the bond market stiffed out that maybe the fed is right at least in the near term about inflation. Maybe some of these pressures being transitory. Then maybe second half growth is not going to be is rip roaring as a lot of expectations based on. I have i just make one last point the last time the ten year. Us treasury yield like you said mel was at one point. Three five percents. That was in late february. You know the s and p five hundred thirty nine fifty so at some point the stock market really liked the idea of rates being able to go up normalized to some degree.

Rookie Reply: How to Find the Owner of a Property (Without Being Creepy)
"Joey's question. I was driving a new part of town and came across a house that had a yard that hasn't been maintained months in the house. Looks uncapped any suggestions. On how i should go about the owner and asking if they will be interested in selling things in advance for joe here. This is a really good question for us. Because i feel like we both go and look at properties and immediately. Try to figure out okay. How do you buy this. So the first thing i would do is if you see this property okay. Obviously write down the address for it. Then there is g. i s. mapping software. so just google your county. Gps mapping and. It should come right up. So this is a parcel mapping software you can type in the address and it will give you options such as what the county taxes are who the property owner as and a mailing address for them and also kind of give you an estimate of the lot lines of how big the property actually is. How many acres. So i would start there looking at that and then you can also see an owner's histories. Maybe they've owned it for a really long time or maybe they just bought it within the past year. You can view that too. And i know tony will wanna talk about this too. But there's also prop stream that software that we both love. And i knew i use it daily now i love it so you can try upstream. What is it tonia. seven day. Trial seven-day free trial We need to get the sponsor sponsor here. We're sending a lot of business there. Were i think you know the big things to right like i. Joey loved that you're mature enough as an investor to identify when property does look like a potential opportunity to buy like so many people they drive around all day pass so many opportunities and they don't even recognize it so the fact that you're a rookie. But you have the awareness to identify potential deal when you see kudos on that. One asked his advice. A spot on ethnic using stream is a great way to get in contact with the potential owners of this property. Super simple you plug in the address and once you have the property pulled up you can skip trace that person for things. Like twelve cents per skip trace so literally for a few pennies. You can figure out who the owner is gonna phone number of potentially an email and you can either send him a text message. Okay you know. I'm actually by your property. Cures to be interested in selling. Send them a postcard. I've heard other real estate investors that as they're driving around they'll take a picture of themselves in front of the property and mel that as opposed card to the owner.

And i'll tell you we're we're so close to the draft. Now i can almost hear that. I picked nnounced and we can get rolling with what should be one of the most exciting dress. We've had mel kiper. Junior is an nfl draft analyst for espn and he co hosts. The first draft podcast. I can feel the 'electricity coursing through your veins. Mel already and i want to get into your latest mock draft that you drought this week a little bit later but i just need to get my own mel kiper scouting report straight here. How many nfl drafts are we at at this point how many of you evaluated and analyzed. What number are we up to. We are at forty three forty. Three thirty eight on espn and since age eighteen. That's nothing but this. I've been doing you've done as a job. Only this is that correct. Couple worked at k. Mart and exterior through high school. But now this is this. Is it and i remember doing radio shows when i was eighteen. Nineteen all over the country. Everybody at the time. Thought i was forty years old. Nobody i was eighteen. Nineteen nobody asks say nobody can ask just heard me talking football talk and draft and whatever and thought i was forty nine eighteen nineteen. Yeah i have a hard time imagining you even just out of the womb mel like sounding anything different than what you sound like right now. Now you've sounded for forty three years. i mean. i'm doing the math back of envelope. Here you've been doing this thing longer than espn has existed quite. Obviously you have been hand in hand with the rise of an industry of an institution basically a tent pole of a multibillion dollar sport and all this is fascinating to me because you helped build this. I think as much as anybody honestly. I mean there are all of these mock drafts online and otherwise. They're all these mel kiper wannabes. All these mel kiper imitators literal and figurative. Todd i have to disagree the taught. I take a look at a standard cup. Hot joe that compared to the dynamic hard hitting electric cold beverage like ice mocha frappuccino out seattle. The start. I just want to ask you about the people who do impressions of you. Are you comfortable with that. How comfortable did you become over. Time with people. Imitating mel kiper great. Let's go back to the one thousand nine hundred eighty three or four. When i was i wanna yesterday. Night did not sound like this with us. Ed this draft mel kiper junior. Who is kind of an expert at a man who Can tell us who the best athlete. Who will be available. You may know was talking about the flu. Bill should maybe think about trading down. Definitely chris you look at the jets with four choices inside the first thirty nine selections. They have a number. Of course i was talking so low. I think that ten selection the first round will dictate with which direction with fifteen they take. Rick brian with the first choice defensive back second may possibly a russell carter attended choice. I i had very little experience. I was under boomer. Just said talk to me like we're sitting here. Having and bob lee was anchoring it and was me and chris berman and we have fun but i was not speaking like i do now and i've progress through the years i guess in terms of what it was then. Pablo what it is now. It's fun to see this. Because i was dealing with critic after critic. Why are you doing this. Why are you wasting time talking about this. Nobody cares and made a joke out of it. And they really mocked it about mach dresser mocking the mock and and have all that negativity turned into positively. And i think the internet had a lot to do with it. Is there a lot of voices out there. Wanting to be heard and they are now. Every time i turn on computers mock draft after mock draft all over the place everyday and to see everybody having big boards by talking about the draft anticipating it and speculating on it. I couldn't be happier. Because i had a vision about what it could be. Everybody told me. I was nuts to have that vision and to see it. Now roy over the last say fifteen twenty years to see what it's become is a word rewarding the vision mel has been more than realized. It feels like that mock draft is not just a piece of americana. it's an institution unto itself. And i wanna actually go to the draft and just how big is now versus when you started with draft number one because i was reading a one point that commissioner of the nfl at the time. Pete rozelle was skeptical about this entire enterprise as a television product. Right yes i think he tried to basically say espn. I don't really want this to be televised. And i don't know why you'd want to almost. Would it be reading reading names. And i knew i'll tell you. Pablo knew before that long before that. When i was in high school we were calling. Remember those numbers. You're probably too young. We would call numbers to just those nine hundred number. You call like you get scores. You would call a nine hundred number to get the draft results. And i'd be in the middle of school and be getting the results and i knew everybody was interested in that and i knew it would tie college to the nfl. And i knew the. Nfl was the king of all sports. The only way to improve your team from one year year to the next was via the draft. So i thought it could work. It could be successful. I thought televising it would be a huge thanks so it's great to prove doubters skeptics wrong. Pablo anything you do. And i think. I went out and i set my sights on proving to everybody that there was a market for those reports. There was a market in an industry that could be built. An.

Nicolas Flamel and the Philosopher's Stone
"If you're a harry potter fan the name nicholas fla mel is probably bringing some bells for you. Nicholas and his wife. Paranoia are mentioned in jk rollings. I harry potter and the philosopher's stone. They're both over six hundred years old. Because in the novel nicholas has discovered a magical artifact that makes him immortal in the united states. this object is known as the sorcerer's stone but for simplicity. I'm gonna stick to the british term philosopher's stone now supposedly this stone is incredibly powerful legends about it have been around for about two thousand years. They say it has the power to turn any metal into gold. And it's connected to this beverage called the of life which keeps you alive forever. It's not super clear of the philosopher's stone makes the elixir. Or if it actually is the elixir or if the recipe for the stone is close enough to the elixir. That if you can make one you can make the other either way. The central idea is consistent. If you discover the philosopher's stone you can become immortal. Ancient accounts describe the stone. Bright red and it wasn't really a stone at all. it was actually more like a powder or a fluid something you'd add to a bubbling vile to create anything. You want and i do mean anything. See alchemists just trying to get rich and achieve immortality. They were trying to unlock the fundamental secrets of the universe. Like why lead is led and knock gold or why me and not someone else and the idea was that with a for stone you could transform anything or anyone into whatever you want it. And it's not like there's just one stone because according to out chemical tradition you can actually make a philosopher's stone so researchers weren't necessarily trying to locate one. They were trying to create it. Supposedly the closest anyone ever got was this guy named nicholas flannel.

They only have one quarterback on the roster until this and that's jalen hurts and they have the six pick in the draft and as you see mel kiper junior and his latest mock has been taking the superstar receiver tamar chase from lsu which would be awfully knife or any quarterback that they have there but so does this mean mel again. It is not your expectation mel with us field. Yates as well here today. It does this mean and again. You're you're mock has them taking chase anyway but the signing flacco does that in your view. Close the door on any possibility that they draft a quarterback at number six. I think they would even going in before flacco. You think about. Joe flacco wise ian eagle thinking about the baltimore raven connection with the philadelphia eagles. Joe douglas and joe flacco who drafted where the want super bowl with the baltimore ravens. So there's that always that connection you can always go to. Guys are picked up later in their career. So for joe. Douglas bringing in a joe flacco you think about what he was doing with the jets in terms of the situation there. And then you've got the philadelphia eagles their same type of thing that raven connections. So i think when you look backing up jalen hurts right now. I don't think he's a threat. I think jalen that guy get jomar chase and go four with him and help jalen hurts and then reassess after the year's over that's what they will do that influence with the raven organization in philadelphia as a factor. I think it's a factor throughout the green and there always is joe. Flacco is a good backup came in the league. Same your matt ryan did and that ryan slow playing great football of course super bowl but Joe flacco did. But i think it's a good situation to have joe flacco there behind. The jalen hurts. Jalen hurts gets hurt. Your season's not over joke and still play. But i think this is jalen team right now. I thought it was carson wentz's team that didn't work out. But i think if you get your march help jalen hurts and then you make your decision air to this year whether in the twenty twenty two draft you have to think about drafting. A young quarterback failed. Same question to you. Does this mean in your mind that the eagles are out of the quarterback market at six. It does not greedy in. Here's a simple reason. Why i agree with everything else that i'm going to double back to that in just a moment. I just have long believed that if you are convinced. A player can be a franchise quarterback that if he's available at six. You have to at least consider it. If you're philadelphia. Now that being said all the indications this offseason from the previous reporting from more about the eagles plan to build around jalen hurts this year plus the signing of joe flacco which at least gives them a veteran option at the very least relatively modest priced by the way three point five million dollars. There are so many signs at the plan. This year is to find ways to make jalen hurts better so i still believe that ultimately the eagles are gonna be in prime position to land one of the best pass catchers in this year's draft a quarterback should not be entirely ruled out. And that's just me having seen the league long enough to know that sometimes teams do things the catch us by surprise even if they should not have caught us by surprise
How Pervasive Is the Culture of Poker?
"Think most americans sort of like do learn the rules of poker as growing up. I think it's like a fairly common experience. And i'm always curious like Is how much more so in the last twenty years i think if you went back forty or fifty years we have a lot of people outside of the united states just sort of like casually learning and playing poker as a kid. But i'm always curious like what how how integrated into the fabric of culture and other societies poker. Is i think very much as in the united states Yeah no it was very similar increase to and you can also imagine. I mean all of hollywood stereotypes. The you know the idea that you know we can Bed more money than we have in our stock and all of that stuff you know which was basically a version of what we thought poker was and i remember there was I have a very vivid memory of a friend of mine who are actually in a chess club. Update the time and there was this movie with mel gibson. I forget the name of the movie but you guys what jodi foster also i think so. Yes i think so like i. I don't remember all of this maverick. Yes that's that's the one that's the one right were they were playing five card poker. And there's this famous scene where he changes to want so my friend. My friend did the same thing you know. We were playing and he literally. I just changed car and then he stares me as like as you're gonna look at your car. He says no guarantee discarding seven or something something completely like i don't know i thought it was the funniest thing ever the funnest thing i've ever seen in my life and we have like things like that members members paying for you know Quarter and dimes and all the staff or even fake money. We didn't care. We just have fun
Raiders make surprise pick in latest Mel Kiper Jr. mock draft
"Mock draft three point. Oh is available on. Espn plus right. Now and here. We go no surprise at the top. Trevor lawrence has been there and we'll be there for the moment and started to the moment. That pig is made. He's going jacksonville. And that's not going to change at number. Two mel projects the jets to stay put and select quarterback zach wilson who would be the team's highest drafted quarterback since they took joe nemeth thousand nine hundred sixty five at number three. We have a trade that panthers would move up from number eight to select justin fields from ohio state carolina getting its quarterback of the future miami. Picking up more prime picks. And the falcons make it four for four to begin the draft selecting their quarterback of the future trae lanes. Should it go this way. It would be the first time ever that quarterbacks go with each of the first four picks in the draft. We take a look at the rest of mel's top ten. After the four consecutive quarterbacks we see some other names you will get to know. Kyle pitch superstar tight end. More pass catchers jamarcus devante smith jail waddell notably absent on this screen. Max jones the fifth quarterback in this first round the star from alabama who mel projects. Going number fifteen to the new england patriots and let's start there because mel we spoke about this the last time you broke this down for us. You had max jones going considerably higher namely number eight overall. Why do you see this drop. Greenwich carolina eight with matt rule had max jones at the senior bowl practices where he was exceptional right. So you figure carolina's stuck at eight. They would look at mack. Jones new england and fifteen is built. Bellichik nick sabin connection and obviously looking at a quarterback to get back to. Maybe the tom brady days. Okay get your that type of quarterback which is what mack jones is his style and the way he goes about his business as a pocket passer so once carolina in my mach three point. Zero was moving up to get justin field. Mack jones next opportunity to come off. The board for me would be new england at fifteen.

"I can't be sure i picked up. Eli weasels night. The first book. I ever read about the holocaust and i saw. It was the poet and novelist. Higham gory who translated it. When i was on year chorus today as year in israel after highschool gory came to meet with the twenty of us at a small room on mount scopus and he told us how and he was growing up in tel aviv. As a boy in the nineteen fifties at night the streets filled with the awful anonymous screams of survivors returning to the camps in nightmares. Or maybe unable to sleep at all for their anguish at the. I thought gory was saying. Good riddance all those ghosts. And the old jews they haunt too but the book. He turned in hebrew in my hand in the park built by the people its author had gone through auschwitz with. I saw that. I had gory all wrong. He wanted to hear more not fewer screens in the night. There was a shelf reference. Books that held. Evan tucson's five volume hebrew dictionary. The same one. That i have asked my parents to buy for me for my birthday and my twenties. Because i couldn't possibly afford it. There was my monetize at a ten volume set called the encyclopedia of the people. A treasury of jewish and general entries in the fields of culture society science technology and life the culmination of the life's work of a writer and lexicographer named don penis. The biggest shelf was given over to scholarly books. There was a frame or box. Magisterial book on jewish law jala its sources and development and amnon rubinstein's classic book on constitutional law in israel a country without a constitution and there were memoirs of biafra the poet and third editor in chief of ours whose brother but sallow yaffa was a founder of tel aviv and there were several trips celebratory volumes dedicated to great teutonic scholars of the hebrew university with narrow intensely almost self periodically scholarly essays offered by other teutonic scholars to celebrate a retirement or a big round birthday. I pulled down volume that to higham sherman a great berlin university scholar of medieval spanish and italian jewish poetry and read for a bit from an essay by the great leipzig educated.

Sure it'll be over by dinnertime. Thought that finished anywhere you want but before you do that. Remember that today as we record. We celebrate world logic day so proclaimed just last year by audrey as the director general of unesco the united nations educational scientific and cultural organization who wrote of logic that quote it has been a key element in the development of the sciences engineering cognitive psychology linguistics and communication a wellspring of innovation. Logic has always been a veritable catalyst for change yet. Despite being surrounded by logic we remain quite unaware of its ubiquity. We often apply logic without knowing that we are doing so thus to draw attention to the importance of logic in the development of knowledge unesco has proclaimed the fourteenth of january world logic day. The date was chosen to honor the two great magicians of the twentieth century. Kurt girdle and alfred karski girdle. Who died on the fourteenth of nineteen. Seventy eight established the incompleteness through which transformed the study of logic in the twentieth century. Tar ski who was born on the fourteenth of nineteen to one develop theories which interacted with those of girdle and quote. I kind of think that sells karski short. But i digress. It is hard to believe yet. It is true that today is the first world logic day in history. I mean it makes no sense. And i am going to celebrate this day to the fullest pondering syllogisms like all. Men are mortal socrates. A man air go. Socrates is mortal beautiful right. Or.

This is the part of the show in which each of us described something that might have surprised or amused the lighted or enchanted in source old. Or may even flu. This as we went our way through our world over the last wild don. What is your country. Yesterday i went to the funeral of legendary jewish zionist. Better mel reese 'field who know spoke about so beautifully at the top of the show. I'll add that. Mel was an early adopter activist out there. Marching with martin luther king and a fighter for soviet jewelry and for ethiopia jury before many others in the community had registered. These causes. now. I i met mel when i was fourteen and he was a forty four year. Old division head or america's running lapan program at camp. Tell you who to. That's the national high school camp for young judaea. It was already practically the oldest. Staffers almost generation Except for his powder director. He knew all things. Hebrew in israel was passionate emotional loving inspiring and crass as hell. Mel wasn't tall but he was made of muscle a jewish strongman from new york with a roman nose and the curls of a roman emperor. Or maybe sabra hero from the founding of the state he would arm wrestle anyone defeating all comers from teenage campers to twenty-something counselors to the truck drivers at the local bar on the basketball court. He had a deadly accurate set. Shot right out of the nineteen fifties. He also had one bad is so he would turn his face to the side to get a good look at the basket and drop in twenty or thirty footers at will. I had never met anyone like him. Had never imagined. Jews could be so powerful so filled with spirit and so much made of this earth. Mel was famous for his lectures sweeping surveys of jewish history or christianity or anti-semitism chock full of information. These talks were distillation of history books. Integrated with mel's own incredible store of anecdotes. He would ratchet down to a near silent. Whisper forcing us to strain forward to listen or make the rafters. Shake as our imaginations soared. This was performance art equal parts theater. Content and bombast brilliantly constructed and perfectly attuned to our attenuated television addicted souls but mills kingdom was as one month wilpon program rather than coach us in the seven hebrew verb forms or tremendous with the beauties of hebrew poetry. He drilled us in hebrew songs and cheers and raunchy lyrics which are still stuck in my brain. After almost half a century he taught us to curse in hebrew which means to cursing arabic warning that while we could say these things to each other we would be putting our lives in danger to an arab for our all and hebrew extravaganzas show paired with my new friend joel rosenfeld to perform hebrew renditions of sir. That's my baby. Cain don zoepel body and singing in the rain complete with yellow slickers on his shaw. Bogus the next year. I did the tin man song in hebrew in a zionist wizard of oz. Now that my hebrew is more proficient. I can tell you that those hebrew translations were truly terrible but i never forgot the words at saturday dinner as shabad was ending mel conducted. She rush guitar quiet singing in the dining room. The music director is not allowed to play the accordion chabad and couldn't cope with leading four hundred teenagers without music. But mel commanded the room his voice cracking as he willed us to feel the emotion of these beautiful melodies and to understand the words. This was followed by dollar outside in a giant circle. The flames dancing in the mountain. Air like our raging hormones. One night melted a few of us boys aside and told us confidence about his own experiences with girls when he was a teenager. Nothing too graphic but not too prudish either just enough to tantalize to make us feel like insiders letting us know that our adolescent lust was perfectly in order but he also told us about wanting to move back to israel how every time he and his pa- mock nic wife offer return. The illness he had developed on kibbutz solar leeman. Israel's earliest years would flare up again and they would have to decamp to new jersey this long deferred zionist struck me as unbearably tragic coloring. This man this unstoppable force of nature with pathos my next summer i did all pawn with mel a second time i grown six inches and thought myself much savvier and this time the sticks jokes that have captivated me a year before seem predictable hat as if i could see the creaky machinery behind the magic for all his business and bluster mill noticed me moping around and pulled me aside to ask what was wrong after a few false starts. I told him the truth about seeing through the smoke and mirrors and mel to his credit. Didn't deny it you've done this already told me and you're such a smart kid. You figured out how it works but for the rest of the group. This is their first time. I need your help to make it succeed for them from now on. You're going to be my secret assistant. And we're going to show these kids in time of their lives. I said okay and we did and of course we share this incredible secret. I knew he won me over that day. By the time. I became a twenty two year old novice. I was full of myself and in full rebellion against my old mentor but to mel i was still one of his boys when i resisted as crash. Course jewish history speechifying. He challenged me to figure out a better way. He kept pestering me until one day. We arrived together at lunch to find my entire. Division of fifteen year olds laying and moss on the ground blocking the entrance to the camp dining room mel demanded to know what the hell was going on the organizer of this escapade elliott feigenbaum told him that they were forming a human carpet. So that the feet of their beloved america's that's me wouldn't have to touch the ground after lunch. Mel pulled me aside and said fucking fetterman but keep doing it. All mel wanted was for me to succeed. He took pride in me then and continued to take pride in whatever i've accomplished since. That's so much more than i had a right to expect. Eleven years later. I came back for one last hurrah to run the feeder program. Tell you huda was. Also mel's last full summer there has thirty fifth. I met my wife sheron on the way up to camp. And something about mel's presence encamped. Blessed are union last night iran. I walked our dog in the rain. And i sang. I need sharp. And she told me that mel had loved her ever since that summer because he loved me.

I think that part of the story is that basically israel and what's app are twins that were separated at birth. I think that they are structurally. Dna wise they are almost identical which is to say that like the way that israel works. Like you said don. It's a very social place but even beyond that it's just this layer of circles on circles on circles on circles on circles. And there's a lot of kind of interplay between the circles as well but everyone's life you know you have your your friends from the army and you have your your your your kid's school the parents from your your kids grade and you have the people from work and you have whatever i know. Everyone in the world has these things but here each of them also becomes a kind of social circle in a way that people have a kind of commitment to and i think that the the map of our civil lives looks really really similar to what must have been the first flow chart that the that the first programmers of what's up came up with it like it really the reason why why it's so powerful here is because it is like so deeply so deeply matches israeli kind of social sensibilities. I think i agree with that. I know i think that's exactly right. I think also you know whether there would be a tipping point where people would say.

Israeli youth movement called young mcabe only just now sprung from the army one hundred and fifty kids together. Mel grew up in the bronx so devoted to the new york giants that he got a job as a kid selling concessions at the polo grounds and when he got to israel in the summer of nineteen forty nine.

Mel lived at camp. Tell you huda. Or in any instance four camp tell you who and he came alive at camp. Tell you who the today a summer camp. Where i went where don went where susan went where bill went where my people went. Mel was there every year. For at least half a century i think he was the mythic head of the pan program where kids rising tenth grade spend the summer learning hebrew and where mel presented the language not just as a way to communicate but as a conification of thousands of years of passion and dreams and longing and creativity and yiddish kite the language that built temples and conveyed prophecies and lately organized ghetto rebellions in heroic wars and my confession is i did not know mel i was a bet person. Tell you really two camps. The older and the newer bet and buy some stroke of a pen. I was assigned my first year to bet and it was in bet that i state every summer thereafter mel was in his blood but it must be said that i did not know mel only in the way that i do not know god or kim kardashian. He was a constant mythic presence. In my life. I heard all the stories. And i repeated lots of them how he challenged kids one on one on the basketball court. They being seventeen the height of their powers and he and his fifties and the stakes were. If he beat them they had to come back to camp the next summer where they had to go to hebrew school over the year and he'd beat them and they would go. I never heard him lecture. But i knew parts of his lectures by heart for for other people repeated them about the holocaust. Resign is a more ben yehuda. He was powerful and he was profane and something about him was glorious. It sounds too fancy to say. But when i was fourteen i thought his personality was zionism. Made flesh the strength. The straight talk the drive the energy a few years ago at a ceremony in tel aviv. In honor of sixty years of yesterday our maybe fifty years of course or some such. He was the guest of honor and guilt troy. You probably know him from his famous books. What he writes in the papers gil troy who himself spent a decade working at t y and loves mel in a way that is beautiful and is pure introduced him with sweet n encompassing warmth and mel already. Almost ninety came up and took the award from gilles. Hand looked at it and said another fucking plaque. That is what i knew about mel. But i also know that in new jersey in the fall winter and spring and at t y in the summer mel raise the generations of kids thousands and thousands to love israel and to thinking a new way about what it is to learn what it is to teach over the years. These kids grew up and lots of us may be all of us not just remember mel but remember being molded by mail. A couple of years ago gill wrote and edited a new version of the thick zionist idea. Book that we all grew up reading. It's called design est and it is dedicated to mail it says quote in loving tribute to our teacher. Mel refilled field.

Not seeing myself and quote you'll see abramowitz the solar energy pioneer and perennial presidential candidate here in his. Y'all told journalists a few years back that one reason he and his wife susan silverman decided to adopt kids from ethiopia was a mind blowing lecture by maurice field that he heard back a camp. You would not have to work hard to dig up. Hundreds of the same kinds of testimonies about career set off in a new direction. Lives changed oceans crossed and minds blown by this man who decided that what he would do with his life is teach kids always seeing in them something. They did not see in themselves until with his help. They did like i said i learned that died just moments after i learned that sheldon adelson died and i thought there are different ways to live a big life. Mel rees fills life was monumental.

If you are a regular reader of the scholarly journal scientific reports you lately have seen his article quantifying the distribution of protein only gummer ization degree reflects cellular information capacity or. Perhaps you know him from one or several of his other one hundred thirty scientific publications of imaginary to ler says it is important to realize that quote. This product is not a milk substitute like almond or soy milk. We plan to produce products that will be identical to products that come from animals by introducing into yeast genomes the genes that code for milk development and cows. Theoretically we can reach a situation in which you can't tell the difference between cow's milk that comes from cow and cow's milk that comes from yeast in order for that to happen in an economical way. We must turn the yeast cells into efficient factories that produce milk proteins with the help of models. We developed in the laboratory. We believe that within a fairly short time we will succeed in making yeasts produce milk proteins in efficient way that will enable affordable high-quality industrial scale production. In a fairly short time we will be able to prepare in our own homes toast with yellow cheese. That was made from yeast not from cow's milk without having paid any more for it end quote which is astonishing. A miracle really and all the more so when you realize that. Yeast are very small. Compared to cow's a milk cow can way nine hundred kilos and in that little bag that weighs one hundred grams. you get like thousands of yeast which means that the others on the east have got to be just teeny and so hard to milk which is just one reason why i love science. So damn much also professor. If you happen to be listening when you succeed as we know you will end. You're looking for names to call your product on supermarket shelves. We humbly submit these suggestions for the whole line of products. Obviously legendary didn't watch ten seasons of how i met your mother for nothing for individually wrapped. Cheese slices solid derry for fattening things. You're not sure if you want to eat or not like say bree quandary. because it's a quandary. Do i eat it though it do. I not eat it for cheese. Packaged and honks. That look like slabs of rock lapidary for cheese. Sold in bulk to high school cafeterias secondary because their secondary schools for milk to drink while doing needlepoint embroidery novelty cheese shaped like a camel. Dromedary obviously though you might want to save that for cheese sold in theaters with wine at the intervals. These ideas are yours professor. Gratis use them as you see fit though. If you wanna put me on the payroll. I'd be delighted to be stipend dairy and arguably nothing captures. The every. david can be goliath spirit of the city. We love so well tel aviv. Ya better than putting eight university degrees to work. In the service of teaching lowly east to produce milk saving cows from lifetimes of confinement reducing the amounts of methane released into the air each year by gigi tons thereby increasing the humanity while reducing the ecological footprint of my morning cereal for nowhere on earth is more dedicated than tel aviv.

Herman's one man show don how you doing i'm good. i'm just wondering if cows are gonna develop east in response to this. And then every time it gets hot they will rise and turn into hollow. It does seem like it can be an infinite regress with yeast infections and the east produce milk and the milk produced so complicated tie-ins as complicated as for me. My name is no ephron. And i don't mean to boast but this past sunday in our biweekly researchers seminar at the university i presented my cv of failures describing every grant that i've been turned down for every fellowship that i've missed every article i've had rejected every job. I haven't gotten this. Let the grad students know that if they encounter a setback. Well we all do we. Just don't talk about it. But it's out there and i don't mean to brag. It's really not how i was brought up but my presentation was so rich in detail so long so convincing so painful that the students are now sure in the knowledge without even the faint doubt that i am the biggest failure in the university. Maybe an all of academia this week. We have three topics of great importance. But first we have a matter that we are following with alert interest in great concern as part of an occasional series. We call the promise. Podcast ponders pained politicians pondering the palliation poets as well as a matter in memoriam. In the course of impeaching the american president. This week speaker of the house of representatives. Nancy pelosi said this. Mr speaker joined the trump presidency this for years and especially during this time i recall the words of a great isreaeli poet ehud manor and that's what he said when he said i can't keep silent in light of how my country has changed. Her face won't quit trying to remind her in her ears all sing my cries until she opens her eyes. I can't keep silent of how my country's changed her face. I urge my republican colleagues to open their eyes. Pelosi was referring to the song. Ainley era too for which the great lyricist you'd manure wrote the words and corinne allow wrote.

Staying at his position or moving to linebacker. I see him. I really do seem safety. I think he's a strong safety type. You can move them in the box tech. You'll get used from clubs that number. Nineteen you watch him in inside the box. He's more of a will linebacker. Every time I talk to is going to be there but Dogar to me is fast. He's got the four four speed. I think he's going to be a free safety. Mel Witch Position Group isn't deep in this class and could cost teams to reach about richest positions. We thought Jared Vanderbilt made a top died.

Cole commit Notre Dame the way back from the injury rate against Georgia Good Athlete Baseball player Pitcher at Notre Dame as well coq met in the second round light Harrison Brian Clark Atlantic Atoms trautmann paper. There's a lot of mixed opinion on these tight ends. I'm like is in the second third round others things they're very overrated tight end. Got To pick the right guy at that spot all right switching gears. Colorado slow viscous. Chanel has been of the most dynamic wideouts in the PAC twelve and the last two seasons is seventy five percent catch rate second among PAC. Twelve wide receivers. He asked most yards after. Catch your with the question and I played Seaver University of Colorado and these questions today are for male and todd based on my personality will ever I e C me and last question is where do you see me into years? Oh the double barrel question. Todd you gonNA take this first. The best fit personnel. I think he's he's a good fit somewhere in that second round range right. What he does best is provide versatility. You can use them as a running back. You can put them in the slot. You can put 'em out why I like watching his game on tape and seeing him live. How physical is the ability to do a lot of different things and catch the ball and traffic and then create after the catch is what I like about him. Now he doesn't have great speeds and some teams are frustrated about the fact that he doesn't run a four four but I think Chenault is GonNa wind up being a day to pick who winds up in the League for a long time and his very very productive and I think we have a new question since we've been doing this in real time. There's that question for him brandon. Mel What can you tell us about that? Bread I think would make sense for the Green Bay packers in the late first round. They need a wide receiver. Desperately one of those receivers. Whether it's you maybe Chase Klay Pool. But it's not as consistent as I was catching the ball I from Arizona. State ran four five vertical over forty out of hecuba. Years got returned skills as well. Green Bay needs a weapon to help out. Devante atoms for Aaron Rodgers Brandon from Arizona State.

Is Jerry Judy from Alabama available? Are we going back to old school? Al Davis going speed four to seven from Henry rugs the other Alabama wide receiver. I think it's going to be wide receiver or could be offensive. Lineman but I think they want speed with that first. Pick at twelve. I FAIR ENOUGH AUBURN DEFENSIVE. Tackle Derrick Brown one of the top defensive players in the draft. Not named chase young are four. Sec Defensive Lineman. Marcus fears with a question on Brown todd. Mail so fellas this the big Swag Gu. I got a question though. I WANNA know why. Derrick Brown hasn't been the focus of one of these conversations going into the draft. Is it because he's over three hundred hours or d? Tackle the dude is dominant. He's a beast. I watched him in the southeastern conference. All alone man talk about Derrick Brow. And how good are you going to be on the next level for me please? For the three hundred and Oval Base Fellas. Thanks we love you swagger of love tell me about Derrick. Brown averaged ten tackles for loss over the last three years. And they about sack totals. Who did he create for those other guys like Marlon Davidson and company hostels? He's got tremendous ability to be as todd mentioned. Xavier mckinney. Is that leader. What their ground is watching? Moving around combines kind of takes over at special presence love the game went back for senior year for the right reasons. Got Better technically. No reason. We're talking more about him. Because we always talk quarterbacks and there's a lot of those quarterbacks up there we're talking about then Okuda cornerback. Ohio State and Simmons Linebacker from Clemson. But he's right in there with Simmons as I said earlier in the show in terms of grade in this draft is right there to be a top five top seven pick overall. I mean he's so special then you watch him and I love our ESPN stats and Info Group. Would you look at him at the nose? Tackle position he had thirteen percent in terms of pressures from the nose tackle spot which was higher than anyone else in the country. Derrick Brown with Okuda as you mentioned and Isaiah Simmons. I love the quarterbacks for these defensive players really rule this draft I Marcus. I hope you're listening. Big Fella big finless. How about this Guy Field? Yates big Mac and all played football division three at Wesleyan right here in Connecticut and field as a question. What's up melon todd field? Yates you're coming to you from division three draft. Prep headquarters you know. I went to Wesleyan University and a lot of people that have Dovan on the twenty twenty class Nobel. Ben Barks the offensive Lineman who really has a chance to be probably the longtime NFL player but besides Bartsch is there any other small school prospects. Whether it's a D Two d three guy that maybe we aren't talking about enough who could be an instant impact player or least have a five plus year career looking forward to hear what you guys have to say all right small schools potential gem? Please feel like three blocks away. I can look I can hit it probably driver. Unfortunately it should be a nine iron but it's like a driver down there. I'M GONNA go with Charlie to pay and I'm sure Melvina tell me that I'm pronouncing it wrong. But the tight end coming out of Portland State Division One AA. We call it whatever you. WanNa call it but this guy it's two hundred and forty five pounds running in the four sevens and the ability to block. I really like him and I can't say his last name again. That's now you only have to you and I'm sure you left out my wofford terriers because there's too many and that's fine We'll get him next. How will this Drafi different in terms of strategy because of the unique situation we're in Mel? This may be the most important question of a mall. Does it allow. Gm's plans or does it change them in any way. All thirty two teams have the same challenges going to be interesting to see what trades the how trades are worked out. Obviously not having the pro- days as impact of the guys who are not at the combine the normally would be in that third fourth fifth round discussion. How did teams evaluate those died? Is the those guys actually come up before late April? Gm's that I've talked to are most concerned of what they're gonNA do draft weekend. They want all of their information in front of them. They want the screens. But they're worried about quote unquote the bandwidth that we've been talking about and I think it's GonNa be fascinating to watch. I think trades are going to be the most important part and what I'm told is they're going to do a lot of text messaging compared to what you usually would do with emails and phone calls by everybody. Will face to your home is important. That's why GEICO helps make it easy to save on Homeowner's insurance because home is more than just a place.

Maybe in the four five and you'd be falling into that late first round area but when you run at four four three and well. I want to ask you justice. What was Joe Brady doing in terms of the receivers? What meant for Joe Borrowing Job? Ready for the often. What impact the Joe Brady have one justin and those receivers at Lsu? He impacted everything. He changed the whole game To be honest he helped us out tremendously with catching ability kitchen Those contested balls are just everything of Vin in the right system on. Just I mean we. We love with everything about him about the the plays who is running Just the whole deal so Thank definitely thanking him for a footprint in me in this situation and I definitely wouldn't be here talking to you is right now if it wasn't for him just in how you staying in shape and I'm going to be honest with you I'm cutting you off again. I'm Melanie were stand. I will never forget Melanie. Were standing there in indy watching. You run the forty and we were both talking about how great you are and contested catches and we're really looking forward legitimately to you running a good time. You read a four-foot three and we were like who okay. That's it that's why you're here right You guys definitely didn't then our forty times so impressively impressive guys with that in a surprising. The whole world of running that fast so everybody For Five or six all right Jessica we appreciate. I'm surprised you didn't ask Todd. What what he runs the forty. And you know everybody's curious five nine her okay. Let's just more to watching and best of luck in the next few weeks big. You're appreciated in the last twenty five years with the NFL. Draft only two quarterbacks we drafted in the fourth round or later have started a super bowl. Tom Brady started an NFL record. Nine Different Super Bowl and Matt Hasselbeck speaking of way of Matt Hasselbeck. What the question. Hey Mel Hey Todd Hasselbeck yeah. Listen we know. Tom Brady picked one ninety nine in the sixth round. Pick one eighty seven in the sixth round just a year before that. I will know in this year's draft class. Who's The quarterback? Who's the guy not a first rounder? But he's going to be a late rounder. That's GonNa make an impact in the NFL tied enquiring minds. WanNa know start with you on that one. Leave it up to are you serious. I'm GONNA find a six round pick. Who's you'd be Tom. Brady Short Chop. Your is the spirit of the question joking. Coal McDonald from Hawaii is interesting. He's got a long delivery but when you watch the tape and I just got finished with two ago. He's consistently accurate. He has great pocket presence. He moves around well. I think he has a chance as a backup. And maybe eventually but I really think call McDonald from Hawaii is going to be one of sleepers of this year's Class Dot James Morgan kid out of Florida international six four hundred and thirty pounder. And you'll get away. You spins it the way it can throw the football. Russians factor got. It has the ability to be a leader that understands an offense is coming willing to work and do everything it takes to billions would organization. I think James Morgan is a late round. Pick out a partner. National Nice quarterback prospect could be a ceiling address all right. We mentioned Tom. Brady's departure. They also released cody Kessler. And that leaves to England with just two quarterbacks on their roster Jarret Stidham and now Brian Hoyer only lawyer has any starts in the league. He's gone just sixteen and twenty two. Here's a Patriots Fan with a question on their teams quarterback situations they Valentine. This is Jacob from Maine. I question for Patriots fans. So are we going to be drafting? A quarterback replace Brady or we're going to be giving jets cinema shots you can do or is it still a possibility. We Sweat Cam Newton. Someone like that regency thank you all right. Thank you Mel Star with you. How do you see the Patriots quarterback situation playing out? Both they might maybe think quarterback. But it's not gonNA fall that way because quarterbacks are getting pushed off Jordan loves me and moved up from there. Maybe the raiders. It's well I would think. Zack von Versatile. Linebacker Contin Xavier mckinney. The safety we talked about earlier and talk thus earlier from Alabama. So I think a defensive player and maybe look at the quarterback ought James Morgan. Todd mentioned cold McDonnell. Maybe they tried to go that that formula the Patriots of us that get a quarterback late. Maybe the way to go in this draft. My guess is that they're gonNA wind up bringing in either a rookie and the second to fourth round range. You know a guy like Jake from I think. Jake from would fit exactly what they want in terms of someone who can come in and compete and maybe not win the job in his first year and maybe never be elite player. But someone WHO's smart enough to pick up the system and it moved. Just do all the little things but I also think Eddie Dalton makes a Lotta sense too I know in the trade situation. We're all assuming that the number one overall pick is going to be Joe Borough going to Cincinnati so maybe it's Dalton that goes through New England but I don't see New England even though they have a fix in the first round packaging picks to move up to get one of these top four quarterback. So we're talking about the first round tie outside of the quarterback spot. It's not like there's other needs New England you could. You could look at the skill position players. What are your expectations? Overall New England in the draft. I think edge they need. They need defensive ends. They need wide receiver state. The they need those type of players they need. Guys that can add speed. Be Better around the quarterback position again. They need a quarterback they gotta figure it out and I'd like them I really do and I know everyone's taking what I've said in the last couple of days out of context but Jarrett Stidham to me has the physical tools to become a good starter in league. I just don't know that he's ready to do it right now. That's the big question but what they need to do is put weapons around him whether it's a wide receiver and different kinds of wide receivers. They're used to having they've they've always been timing base offense but now they're going to have to adjust the things that they're doing offensively and I think it's going to be interesting to see what bill check in. The staff has to do in terms of trying to adjust to whatever. The quarterback situation is moving forward and they know on better than anybody. They've had them. They know what he's capable of. And I would say you. Basically judge them against these incoming quarterbacks those early rounds you mentioned Jake from today think from can be better than them. They know that they know what stood amazed that they don't think that anything we like them better than the from coming in a little for the behind obviously in that curve. Then you wait until the late around and you address the defensive side you mentioned receivers. I like Antonio Gandhi Goldman four six at the combine but all he did was producing liberty. Here's a tip. You get lost in the shuffle. Tae J. hill-wood Ohio state another receiver. Who was productive. And then you look at the defensive guys. I mentioned like Zack. Who's at versatile? Linebacker mention ED ability coming off the edges. I pass rusher. He can do that. He's got that kind of Light Rail Bowl Jonna guys. They've had it linebacker in that situation. There Kyle Van Noy. That's what Zak maybe could be. More speed reads this time. We'll stay at quarterback and tight. I'll start with you. A question from Ryan Hall Jalen Hurts. Have any chance to be drafted in the late. First or early second round. I'd say somewhere in the second round. I talked to Gaza League and the last couple of weeks. I've been surprised. Some teams really like him in the second round some teams like in the third fourth round range. I know my opinion on them. I think he's a hill type of player. But I think eventually he's GonNa wind up being a top fifty six. The type draft pick Brunelli. Sports Asks Mel. Who is.

I hadn't watched the Minnesota tape but my goodness he's good that Penn state gaming that I drive the ability to get off a block and then make the tackle and then turn Ron and go up and get the ball. I mean he's special. There's no question. But he's not mckinney. I mean mckinney. To me is is the the difference maker in terms of the safety position this year. Now grant help coming in from LSU. Was I thought it was going to be a top. Ten Top fifteen picks but these other two players Winfield I agree with you. But also mckinney have outplayed him and. I think they're going to both be somewhere in that top twenty. I think help. It's going to be a little bit later in the first if not early in the second round now let me ask you. This is the best fit for mckinney teams anywhere that Jacksonville area. You look at certainly New England. Miami anybody like that. For a Xavier mckinney. Who has like say when you look at the tackle production and get sacked? Intercepts passes the as a heck of a football player. Four six three.

What's the highest? You could see him going Ivan. So we're in the top fifteen. I mean. He's he's the most explosive. He's the fastest of all those wide receivers. Jerry Judy's a better route runner. His teammates from Alabama. You look at some of the other wide receivers. They can do a bunch of different things but rug is tough. He's physical and I just love the way he approaches the game. Any didn't have a drop the entire season. I now which wide receiver is the Terry McLaren of this draft tonio gifts? That Memphis is if you look at a guy lost in the shuffle bets so versatile and I didn't get the ability to run the football and it's fallen his hands that way return kickoff and down in that regard this year and he improved as receiver for three nine fortieth sex.

Where do you see t higgins falling in the draft? He could be the six wide wide receiver in the first round. Probably early second but he is six. Then he's GonNa Wind Up. It's GONNA wind up being the best class that we've had tied with the twenty fifteen class. In the last decade but t higgins to me physical down the field does a great job contestant can contested catches and he ran a four or five eight his pro day. Oh well what? Are you going to do well this from choke now? So many question marks on defense. Why is it so many have Dallas taken a wide out solid eagle game at the end of last year when the group was on sidelines? Michael Gallup you need that guy. I think they'll be gone on the CD. Land will be gone. You're looking at C. J. Anderson quarterback out Florida Phillips with Byron Jones moving onto the Dolphins Henderson obviously coverage skills are outstanding and these become a little more physical and tackle a little bit better but when pure talent for today's NFL. He's the cornerback. Government that the dallas cowboys made it seventeen guys. Lsu Wide Receiver Justin Jefferson Hall. One hundred eleven receptions and nineteen eighteen touchdowns last season and that's an Lsu single season record for receptions and his three seasons at Lsu. Jefferson ranks fifth in career receptions. Third in touchdown receptions failing only Dwayne bowe and Brandon look fell and at this year's combine. He ran a four four three tied for the eighth fastest a month. Wide receivers the same time by the way as Lsu Rate Odell Beckham Junior and we're happy to have with us just Jefferson and just like you talked to Valentine but first let me ask you a few things if you and that's what's his virtual pre-draft process ben like I mean we talk about it but you're living it and not being able to meet with teams. Emerson is definitely a little difficult and Just seen a donor or lease different interviews over phone In everything the whole process It is pretty interesting Appreciate that this ever had happened so Just buying into the process. You know making sure these coaches know that I'm a smart player in I'm able to be there anymore. See Report listen the culmination of draft processes hearing your name called walk across that stage. That won't happen this time around. We will not be in Las Vegas. So what what does that feel like? It's definitely difficult is You know as a young boy. I'll eat dreamed of walking across the stage. She can the commissioner his hands so is the only door from home but It's just something that we have have to settle for in I mean we still going to draft so I guess I guess fine. Well that's a good news right. This is just the very beginning of the next stage and we do have Mellon tied with US justice. I'm going to hand it off to you in any questions. You may have for them definitely Of One question probably just where you guys think I will be drafted at. I'll go justin. I can go anywhere between nineteenth and the Las Vegas Raiders. Twenty-one Philadelphia twenty two minnesota. They've one of those three teens. Whether it's the raiders. The Eagles or the Vikings ends up with Justin Jefferson. Just I want to ask you a question when you were in that four three and you saw the time and you actually knew exactly what you're in. We're you surprise or did you expect that. I suspected just going to training and Just going to I M G working with Malaysian of the best. Their Best. So he he trained me well to get that fast. Forty time in I knew that was the big question of the whole draft was how I was going to be so making sure that that time was fast enough for for me To be in a in a higher traffic justice. Let me ask you this job. Is I hear last year. More time with each other Just being able to connect with each other More often Having a whole year under our just really just put in extra work Last season wanted at national championship. We knew that we had the right system in the right players to do so so We definitely wanted to to show the world what we can do when Joseph Phenomenal quarterback. Justin last hand. You got these guys here. I'm not sure that will happen again. Before the draft anything else are remember hearing you guys you know. Not What Forty time I was going to get A. Were you surprised that.

"Valentine versus speed reads rapid fire questions. How about this one will start with you from tarrant Campbell if Isaiah stem instill available at Seventy. You see the panthers taking him. Instead of Derrick Brown with very similar grade depends on what they need more. And that's defensive. Tackle Derrick Brown. The real disruptor along the interior great attitude. Great kid would probably be Derek round slightly but they both have very similar grades. I Todd a question from Avi which offensive line prospect best FITS CLIFF. Kingsbury offense for Arizona. Take it eight overall. Yeah I would go with with Christian worse but from Iowa. He's a mobile. He does exactly what they want in terms of their zone. Blocking scheme jeter wills in my opinion coming out of Alabama is a better offensive. Lineman were out of Iowa is going to be more pro ready and might might be able to even kick inside guard. I have one more from you. This one from Matthew Pearl as new jets. Gm Joe Douglas. Who would be the first player you tie your name to at eleven? He wants to make an impact he wants to. He wants everyone in the organization and know that he's a player that is going to be tough and physical and do all the right things. I think it's GonNa be an offensive lineman but if the four offensive tackles go off the board before the top ten picks then it could be Jerry Judy the wide receiver from Alabama. It's either receiver and offensive tackle. If I'm guessing Mala question from Ray Bryce who would the raiders? Prefer out of these three judy lamb or rugs. I look at what Jon Gruden always wanted to raid or anything branch and I go to Henry Rugs. The third four to five four to seven speed. He was consistent catching the ball. Very rare seed merchant who does football and his natural catching it I would think Henry Rugs. The third they don't they think are receiver over a quarterback. George Love Utah. Say I tied. Kevin asks will the whole strapped a quarterback this year. I don't think so I actually. I don't think I think they're gonna go the edge players. I think they want some more receivers. I think they want defensive ends. I think they won't pass. Rushers guys can actually get after the quarterback and maybe next year. They'll they'll address the quarterback position moving forward. But I don't think in the first round. You're going to see a quarterback taken by the colts. All right the bucks if you missed it along with their new quarterback Tom Brady revealed their New Jersey's today. No cream cycle just a simplified. Look if you will hear Bucks Fan with a draft question of his own Mel Todd. It's Robert from New Jersey with the bucks newly acquired hall of Fame quarterback with the fourteenth pick. Do they protect Brady at all costs or they load up on the secondary to help out their team. Let me know what you think. Go Box all right. Go ahead and fourteen Robert. I would go off. Pensive line is tough to pass up. Obviously he's talking about defensive players running back like John's race. We have the future quarterback. Maybe Air Eric Thomas from Georgia left tackle very solid film evaluation grave. And Rick Wills Malibu. It's one of those. Accolades comes with bucket here. All right we'll take a look at the safeties in this year's draft class in both of you have the same three players in the top three Melville. Your top safety Antoine Winfield Junior. He led Minnesota Seven Tied Likes Alabama's Xavier mckinney. Here's Dave you're with. The questioned. Militant Desire mckinney and. I got a question for both of you. So I've watched a lot of safeties in this year's draft and so for male I just want to ask how am I not on safety in this year's draft based solely off a film? Nothing else is film and for Todd. I want you to please explain the mail. Why am the number one safety and the drive based solely the off a film because film never lies ever? It's a really quick. He's the best pure safety. Antoine Winfield is a slot corner slash safety with more versatility ran for four or five Xavier. End Fourth Straight. As a pure safety Xavier mckinney. His number one of my board. That's the little guys do. A lot of things were a lot of hats who will be Antoine Winfield. Junior both are going to go and at twenty twenty.

"In the NFL draft. Now just sixteen days away. Here's the first round draft order starting with the Bengals at one and anchored by this super bowl champion Kansas City chiefs at thirty two. And we're glad to have you for you've got now and taught and here. They are mel kiper junior and todd mcshay and we want to know your questions as well. We'll take them over the next hour. So use the Hashtag ask Mellon tied and we will hopefully read your question on the air and we will start off where else with the top of the draft with a question from Colby. Covington this via twitter. Why does the mainstream media hate the idea of Joe? Brough to the Bengals. They clearly have a better roster on offense then does Miami mail you first on Joe Bro. A fit with the BENGALS team coming off a two and fourteen season. I don't get it when the I have been saying this for months. I mean the Bengals have been the two super bowls Kenny Anderson boomer size and they had success with Carson Palmer and Andy Dalton and this notion that the bengals the number one. Best quarterback is utterly ridiculous. And it's not factual things haven't been the super bowl bucket them. They talking about the Bengals like they've been one of those perennial losers. That's not been the case or skill talent there for quarterback. There's an opportunity for Joe Borough to be with Penny Anderson boomer size and was with the bengals like I said. I don't understand why the noises there by inaccurate noise. Now I love I love it. I love the Kenny Anderson. I love the fact that you're you're jumping here with the history of it. They're gonNA take borough number one. If the only like five percent chance of anything happening at number one is going to be making a trade to move back with Miami. Miami's got three first. Round picks five picks in the first two rounds and six in the top seventy overall. I don't think that they're going to be able to make a move. I think since he's GonNa sit there number one and they're going to take jobs but the only thing that could happen is that Miami tries to make a play to get up to that number one spot but again. I think it's a ninety five percent chance at least since he's just going to sit there and do the right thing and take Joe Borough the best quarterback in this class and probably the second best overall player in this class. All right Fellas last move to the number two overall pick a question from David Robbins. I know there are no sure in any draft. A team in Washington short needs to find one chase. Young sure seems like one over to todd. Your thoughts I mean. If you throw the quarterbacks out the best player in the strap is I mean he's he is clearly the best talent sixteen and a half sacks led the FBI s last year six of those were stripped sacks. So he's getting the ball back to you. Offensively I think Washington holds tight at number two. Everyone's talking now about the potential that moving out what they're doing wendy is they're trying to get other teams to come up and give them a ridiculous deal because they know that. Detroit is going to take a deal at number three so Washington's trying to do is get four or five picks to move back and still maybe get chase but I think ultimately Mel. You'RE GONNA wind up seeing chase young as the second overall player in this year's draft. Yeah the process complicated it. The lack of the normal process and to With the injuries would they move up to get a quarterback who you haven't had that personal situation with with your doctor your medical staff and that kind of intention the detail you need to make that bold ru up and give up graphic. They haven't had that opportunity and the redskins were to. They might have considered how you've been cleaned through the process of not had those three low extremity injuries I think injury prevents the trade and prevents the Redskins from taking gus. They take the best player on the board at that point. Which is there are really so many unique circumstances to this draft in particular and Mel. Let's move now to a question from John Gallon water. Is it possible the lions would be a player for a quarterback at the number three spot? Johnny Whitney I think for what the question is. Who would they take? They were stuck at three. You've gotTA take a corner. They've gotta get some players who can cover. They traded Darius slay. They've made moves. This team is brought in a lot of guys free agency. I think Matt Patricia. Winning Football Games get guys who can cover the Stephon Gilmore this defense? That's what I think. Jeff Okuda cornerback from Ohio. State can be an opportunity down. Take it but if you're stuck to three you gotta make a no Kudos. Todd would be the guy to take all right todd question from Nick Brunson. Should the giants go with Isaiah? Stimulus or one of the offensive tackles listen. They need an offense tackle but they also need a linebacker and Isaiah Simmons to me is today's NFL linebacker yes. He has to improve in terms of take on skills and instincts versus the Ron. But this dude can play in the slot. He can cover. Do that like overhang that you really need in today's NFL. He can play in inside the box he can played free. Safety watched that Ohio state tape. The 35-yards covers to go up and get the ball. I think-i special. He's going to continue to get better and Simmons to me with Okuda and Derrick Brown the defensive tackle from Auburn or the three best players really overall in this entire draft. That are not quarterbacks. All right the dolphins guys currently have three first round draft picks. That's the most of any team in this year's draft in two thousand twenty and in their most recent drafts. Both of you have the dolphins focusing on the offensive side of the ball. Starting with drafting Alabama quarterback to tongue of ISLA with the fifth overall. Pick HERE IS A. Two Fan on the dolphins as a potential destination Mellon taught. It's Allston winstead down here in Mobile Alabama. Big Fan of the program. Had a question for you. You think the dolphins are gonNA stick with two or you think somebody else is going to trade up and get him. I know everybody's concerned about his health and him staying healthy but we all know he can throw. Touchdown passes as always roll. Roll Tide Mail. You can take this one to obviously if he's there and he probably right now when you look at the injury situation will be if he is do they take 'em you hear rumblings about Justin herber title be screaming about that but it's out there and the rumor mill. We don't know what they're going to do in terms that but if I'm the I'm takin sue us. He's there because of the injury had not been for the injury. Miami would have had a trade up and give up. Some of those draft picks. Check him because of the injury is there. I had to arrange beheaded her when you talk to I talk to. I would think to not screaming on. Berry calm but I need to know who you're talking to. I have no idea who in the world would be talking to unless it's purely medical that we're not going to be the second ignored united. Imagine okay but I can. I can't ignore Justin Herbert's tape. I would much rather take Jordan. Love the Utah State quarterback because he has the potential. If I have a quarterback coach a head coach and the opportunity to develop someone. He's going to be a better quarterback than Justin. Herbert and five years. So I would rather take love than Herbert but it wouldn't unless it was completely medical where my staff came to me and said he's off the board then it blows my mind that you're even talking about it but I still love you. I have nothing else to offer. Wendy a justin. Herbert has nailed the process. He was a better quarterback on the field in mobile than Jordan. Love was he was. Mvp The game game love played in great combine. Great Pro Day. He had a good season. He's not perfect but neither is loves. A odds. Love does not perfect as well. I ain't guys talking about doing now. Because of the medical not because of the quarterback he is fragile. He's had injuries now. We're talking about the NFL. That's the reason why Justin Bieber who has been cleaned through the process as great physical athletic ability super intelligent at goodyear really good year in great process when he's talking about what happened after the season after he got out of Oregon and went to the senior bowl then the combine the pro day. I don't know how you can't. The Justin Harper is going to go very high draft. I've been I have questions about Herbert but the League or people that Love Justin her. I can't believe you don't understand. That frees mel breeze breeze. Got Me going all ready all right. Todd you were agreeing to disagree. We stop in here. I'm good to disagree I eight. I like fell tours. Ridiculous you can't say herber to now okay. Now now you're done all right. Let's we're just getting more and more questions on twitter via Hashtag. Ask Smell and todd can't promise you they'll agree. But they will is next on our sportscenter special with the bucks then veiling their New Jersey's today see what our guys think.

"Really? She's going to hit me for this portion a country house with. I mean Mel b scariest by an ginger where the most fun anyways. So make sense. And also, I think with this is my this is my hypothesis as non famous person all these famous people these groups famous people who live like very. Difficult lives in that. They can't really like meet new people, and it's very isolated. It's like, of course, they're fucking each other. It's like, of course, to Ayla stirs who were in a movie together fucking each other. Like, I just assume that, you know, Jennifer, Lawrence, and George Clooney, and like riana, and all these all the oceans eight casts, if you said that like, Sandra, Bullock and Rana fucked on the set of oceans ate I'd be like, of course, like I just -ssume that all of these people are fucking all the time. Because what else is there to do canny is that Mel c gave off the most gave ibes because she was sporty spice as she was like the sporty one. Yeah. So it's the prising that it's actually not she was not involved in this, maybe and she's like a match you left me out of this. Although. Like, they probably didn't leave her out. Maybe she was just like don't mention me yet. We're going. We're going one part of the story. I'm sure there's like plenty other chapters. Let's do Spice Girls ranked who to them into nineteen. Who used I think remains? I think Mel c remains who he strike? Melby the all of the the Murphy stuff, the she's got she's got a lot of tabloid, but she's around more like Mel c like literally who issue now about Mel c had like a hit song after Spice Girls. I know that what like I know. It was like one song new cares. But like Melby is like truly like a creature of the tabloids. What about baby? I feel like is baby who used not really button. But the thing is it's like if this is. Whatever we are. We started them on their like who we miss like to be in the tabloids to be who we are like who are they because I feel like they're all the same level of who are they it's like you're randomly. You. Don't know who they you might not know who they are. If you're like, Jen jen's, e or whatever, but let's just go off of like who s in terms like who's done the most like kind of Pasha's number one Pasha's number one them east. That's true. It's true. He married. British royalty on Jimmy, and she stayed away from kind of the she didn't really do anything shameless. She started a clothing line that was actually legitimate, right? Then I would say Mel CC. Would you say Jerry say, I would say, Jerry, Jerry. Yeah. It's posh Jerry Mel, Victoria, Jerry Mel c than baby baby. Then Mel b as who used at mill get so many health. But it's like it's weird. This is this is sort of this distinction that we're making sort of difficult because like Melby is gets more headlines than most of them. But her behavior is just like extremely Hui. So no. But that's what I'm saying. That's why think she's like the who asked because you her she's just like sh-, and she's the one who's like in the tabloids being like fucked, Jerry and also like her like fucked up marriages always on the tabloids like like she's gone through a lot of like, really. Stuff Mel b not Melby sorry baby spice. Emma has done a lot with her post Bice career that we don't really know what ton about like, she actually is pretty active does like not embarrassing things. Maybe okay. Prove me wrong. I'm not British. So I don't really like see her. But she's also the godmother to Jerry's daughter. She's kind of has more of a. I don't know. So the ranking is posh ginger sporty baby scary, and I only put forty above baby. Because sporting had more of judge right meter, we are after the ice girls. And that's the only reason I put sporty over baby. But I like sporty and baby are nobody..
