"Far there have been counted 69 900,000 for Trump out of nearly 150 million votes cast. Joe Biden has a solid four million vote lead. But it's still very close and closer than I think A lot of people thought it would be given the drumbeat about President Trump and given the polling. What do you make of that? Yeah, So you know, this has not been a good year for pollsters again. 2016, Of course, you know was a little surprising that the national polls were actually really accurate in predicting the popular vote, but because of the electoral College, Of course, it's really the state results that matter and the Poles in 2016. Jeanne did absolutely underestimate the support for Donald Trump. And so you know, the pollsters looked at that. Of course, they never want to get it wrong. That's embarrassing. And you know, their reputation is staked on getting it right. So you know, they looked at that they thought, Okay, Well, you know, he brought out some new people who hadn't voted before. You know, Some of those late deciders kind of broke towards Hansen. You know, they tried to tweak their models to really account for those those differences that they hadn't predicted. And they But they had the problem solved. Well, here we are in 2020 once again and the Poles were predicting much stronger showing for Joe Biden. Then we actually are seeing so why? You know why we're the polls off again. And you know, we don't We don't know exactly yet. And of course, you know we were just passing and we haven't counted all the votes yet. So we don't know quite how far off they were. But again, there seems to be the systematic bias and you know, so one possibility is that Trump's supporters are may be less likely to participate in those polls. Those shy Republicans. Yeah, so when he was on the ballot in 2016, and again this year, you know it's throwing the polls off. And if you think about it, you know that kind of makes sense because he does spend a lot of time criticizing the media. And when many of these poll they're done by media organizations in university, you could imagine that a lot of Trump's supporters, Major. They know I am not participating in that. And so they get undercounted is, though that is there any is there and we got a few seconds liberal bias on the part of the pollsters and the media that are wishful thinking. Going on here. Get about 15 seconds. Yeah, I don't really think so. I mean, I think they really want to get it right. They absolutely want to get it right. The pollsters have no interest in getting it wrong. I think that we just need to really Update our models. Onda also, you know the turnout this year was a record breaking, so that also affects your models. If you have a lot more people turning out then you're expecting so they'll be looking very closely at all of this in the coming weeks. OK, Melinda Jackson. Thank you so much associate dean of political Science Department of San Jose Political Science department at San Jose State. Thanks so much for coming on the Lady of the best. Sorry. You're welcome. All right, talk with you soon. We're going to continue in a moment when we come back on the other side of ABC News. We're going to talk with a Laurence tribe professor of constitutional law. America's at Harvard Law School. Harvard Pretty good school in case you are unaware. So.

"As these last votes are being counted in places like Nevada and Arizona and Pennsylvania. Well, and President Trump has been urging, telling his supporters don't vote by mail. You can't trust the system. He's been saying that for weeks or longer months go vote in person. Go vote in person. And in some respects That may have come back to bite him. Because now as we're seeing is Thies, late Ballots come in not late ballots. These ballots come in that have were mail in ballots that are being counted their heavily favoring Joe Biden and they and the swing in states like Georgia and Pennsylvania, really remarkable. Yes, Absolutely. And you know, that's the thing. I mean, we saw this coming and you know, if you want to take a cynical view of it, you could say that, you know, maybe this was a political strategy. Tio set people up to have some skepticism about these ballots are being counted. You know again that were postmarked or mailed in before the election but are being counted now after election day, because there are just so many of them in the middle of a pandemic. You know that that by talking so much ahead of time about not being able to trust Process. It really set people up to have those seeds of doubt in mind. None of the last. I do think that that the majority of Americans do trust our processes and again, you know the fact that we have 50 different states, many of which have Republican governors and Republican secretaries of state, you know, it's the secretary of state's job to actually oversee the election process in that state. And so to make the case that you know there's a systematic bias against Trump in all these different 15 states. You know, it is really quite difficult to believe well, and he also, you know he hasn't made those claims in any of the states where he's leading that there is any problem with the vote on DH in Pennsylvania. It's a Republican governor and Arizona as well. And I think if I'm not mistaken in Pennsylvania, it's a Republican in charge of Secretary of State talks. Yeah, I mean, I think again. I think most voters see through this, You know, to claim that when you're winning the vote is fair. And when you're losing its unfair, you know, I mean, come on. We can all agree that we have rules and processes in place. We don't change them. In the middle of the game. We don't change them after the fact and we have processes in place when it is very, very close, like it looks like it's going to be in Georgia. There's going to be a recount, and that's fine. That's normal. That is the way the process should work where there are legitimate. Claims of some sort of irregularity. Then there's a court case filed and you take it to court and you show your evidence that is perfectly fine. That is part of the process. And that is where these thes debate should be played out. Not in the streets and not, you know, with with people just, you know, kind of Ah, letting their emotions kind of rule in terms of just wanting their candidate to win right and reckless allegations that are so far unfounded and you're right. Very close. It's something like 1600 votes in Georgia. The lead by Biden's They're so very slim, very likely to be a recount their depending on what happens with the rest of us. I think I don't remember what the law is in Georgia. But if it's if there's no less than five or 10% difference or something, there's an automatic recount. So we maybe had heading toward a recount in Georgia nonetheless, but someone's saying to me today, he should just it's you know, we should just concede and you heard the mayor of Philadelphia say today. It's time for Trump to put on his big boy pants and admit he lost and congratulate the winner. Well, that's not really fair because this election isn't over yet. If I were president Trump, I wouldn't concede either. We don't know yet. Now what? Whether he should be making reckless allegations. About voter fraud and the election being stolen. That's a whole other matter, but it really isn't time for him to concede yet, is it? No, I don't think so. I think we can all agree that every vote should be counted. Absolutely. And, you know, we saw what happened with the 2000 election. You know, with Al Gore conceding and then un conceding, you know, I mean, you don't want to be in that situation, So we all just need to be patient. You know, it's going to take. Yeah. I mean, I think we may have the result by the end of the day today, but, you know, in in states like Georgia You know, it is so very close that they're going to be counting all of those, You know, military ballots over these dollars that are coming in still and need to be counted. And you know, it may come down to a few 100 or a few 1000 votes, which, frankly, I mean, that is the rial. Big surprise. I think of this election if Joe Biden wins Georgia. I mean, that is a state that has not voted for a Democrat since 1992. That would be a huge, huge flip. Yeah, since Clinton. I want to talk to you a little bit about that specific point, and also what this means for the country that it is this close when polls suggested it wasn't going to be talking with Melinda Jackson Associate professor of political science at San Jose State, Dan actually sitting in for Pat Thurston back here in a moment. My local coffee shop is my Penn State World Campus classroom, giving me the full Penn State experience online. It's home to thousands of students working together with faculty to advance our careers. Change our careers.

"On updated totals from Pennsylvania, where Biden has now pulled ahead as you well know, in Nevada and Arizona, waiting for new totals to continue to come in by leading there as well. And in Georgia major story has developed there. As Biden has closed the gap it is now leading in Georgia. He is on the verge. Of becoming the next president. But again, these battleground states still too close to call definitively. So this race is not yet over. We're going to talk about the next steps over the next 24 48 hours as the votes continue to be tallied, and the president decides what his course of action will be. Is he going to continue to fight these legal challenges? Is he going to continue to fraudulently claim? Fortunately, Lee claim widespread fraud, which there has just been no evidence of whatsoever. It's interesting that yesterday when he came out and made these wild claims All of the broadcast networks and several the cable networks interrupted and dumped out of that coverage and went back to their anchors because they said they wanted to fact check and they were unsubstantiated claims so they didn't carry all of his Remarks. So what will the president do today? We're going to talk about what's happening right this moment and what it means for the country as the country tries to move forward, heal these wounds, or we're going to talk about the legal challenges with a constitutional law expert professor who once taught Barack Obama and Justice John Roberts. What those challenges might look like and what this Overall challenge just verbal challenge to our electron system by the president really means does it undermine our system in any way we'll talk about that. I want to talk with our resident medical expert about the Corona virus. And how if the administration changes and Joe Biden takes over, as it appears, is goingto happen, how that changes in terms of strategy for dealing with the Corona virus, and then we're also going to talk about How the country has been affected the last four years with a dear friend of mine, who is a journalism professor at San Jose State University. Journalism has been under attack the last four years. And now in the last few days, the election system and the country has been under attack. We're going to talk about some of these issues we want to hear from you today for 15 80 88 10 forward 5 80 88 10. Come on with us and get part get involved in this conversation. You know, Kim, I was thinking today the first time I ever covered National political event was in 1984 0 1984 on Radio Wchl Radio in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, my hometown and also where I went to school University of North Carolina Chol home of Jim Lampley, you know Jim Lampley, the sports announcer, famous sports announcer, Most recently noted Ah, a lot of notoriety for covering boxing on HBO. He gotta start anyway. So I was covering. I didn't know what I was doing, but I was I was very young still in college, my junior year in college and I covered the first thing I covered for that station on radio was the presidential debate between Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale. And that was 1984 36 years ago, And I remember what was interesting is think about this. Remember who His running mate was Walter Mondale's running mate, Geraldine Ferraro. Representative from New York. First woman ever nominated to that. Position. And here we are. Today with the first African American woman nominated to that position, and about potentially it seems to become The vice president of United States. Fascinating in 36 years. I mean, we think we've been so preoccupied with the roller coaster ride that is theologian. You know, even now, you don't really know you could have ballots from military Members overseas. They're so money. It's just you don't know. And it's so theater tension is there that you It's almost like you forget the historic thing that it really looks possible that it could happen that we could have The first woman sitting in the vice president's chair. Then you add the historic, you know, racial component to that and writes pretty over. It's pretty overwhelming right it is, and it's overwhelming and back in 1984. It was a huge deal when Geraldine Ferraro was nominated, and it still is to this day. With any luck one day soon, it won't be a big deal at all. It'll be routine. But anyway, there's a lot to unpack here today and joined by Melinda Jackson, PhD, associate dean of political Science Department of San Jose State University. A dear friend and someone I worked with many, many times over the years, Melinda Thank you for coming on. Thanks for having me. Good afternoon. Good afternoon to you. I guess there's not much for you to talk to your students about to teach them, huh? Oh, yes, It's been boring, You know, 2020. That's another boring year. It has been quite a week. Let's just say What is your take? Let's talk. There's a lot of one. I ask you, but let's talk about just where we are. At this moment. As the count continues its disputed by the president, it looks like it's leaning toward Joe Biden. What is your take from a political science perspective on what's happening? Yeah, well, A lot of what we're seeing is absolutely normal, right? It's normal political process. You know, we've had mail in voting here in California for many years. Most states have you know some allowance for that, of course this year. The big change with with the pandemic. Many, many more voters chose to use the mail in ballot option and in states like Pennsylvania, you know that's that's created some challenges because they just haven't been used Tio processing that volume of of mail ballots. Nevertheless, you know, we saw this coming through part of what I'm viewing. You know, as a political scientist is this is our institutions at work, and they are actually coming through with flying colors, you know? We have 50 different states with 50 slightly different, You know, electoral processes in how you know the rules are about how late the ballots can be counted and how exactly that happens. But despite all of these challenges this year, it seems to be going very smoothly. For the most part. It's just a little slower than normal. So you know, I think that Of course, is very tense for all of us to be waiting for the final results to come in, But you know, we need to kind of take a step back, Take a deep breath and recognized that the most important thing is for every single vote to be counted and in some cases, perhaps recounted, and that's fine. You know, that is the Democratic process at work, and we could just be a little patient. Yeah. People who like democracy are like people like sausage. You don't want to see it being made right a minute convey message on and this is the process And it is. We are waiting for several days and we Milt may start to wait several more. But that's the process and it isn't unusual. I'm almost in every election ballots are counted well after election day. It's just it's so close this year, every single ballot. Matters in terms of being able to declare a winner. Absolutely. And then the other strange thing. The fear that emerged is that you know, in large part because of the president's rhetoric and casting doubt on you know the validity of the mail in voting process, many of his supporters chose instead to vote in person on election Day. So we have this partisan split, where the mail ballots are tending to be more from Democratic voters supporting Biden and the in person votes, which were counted faster. On election. They tend to be coming from Republicans. That's a switch. In the past. We tended to see more of a Republican bias in the absentee ballots. So you know that's another big difference this year that we be playing out.

"That finds it difficult to even talk to each other. Yeah, good point. Keep it and it kept us Will it ease? I thought, I just added to the tension that everyone is feeling after seven months of Corona virus and also an acrimonious political process to begin with, Let's talk a little bit about the propositions there. 10 propositions on the ballot. That statewide propositions that people will be asked to decide coming up on the election there. There are a handful of them that are getting a lot of attention. I'd love to know which ones stick out to you. I'd love to hear your thoughts on prop 17, which restores the right to vote after completion of prison term. Restores voting rights upon the completion of a prison term. Two persons have been disqualified from voting while serving a prison term. That's gotten a lot of attention. Any thoughts on that? Yeah. So I think we're seeing some themes in the proposition is here and one of them. Is this expansion of voting rights? This one, of course, which would restore voting rights to focus as you say, completed their prison term, But I'm still on parole. I'm also goes along with the focus on criminal justice reform that we're seeing in the country right now. So this kind of combined those Tio this one, you know, has we? We don't have a lot of polling on this one. But recent poll did show that the yes side was ahead. Lot of people still undecided, though. And so we'll see. But I think this one has a decent chance of passing. And, um, you know, along with the proposition that would allow a 17 year old prop 18 would allow a 17 year old to vote in the primary. If they're going to be 18 by the general election also kind of goes along with this idea of expanding voting rights. Now that one didn't have quite as much support in the polls. I think people are a little unsure about You know, lowering the voting age, even a little bit for that primary but prop 17 again. We'll see well how those undecided folks shake out at the end of the day, but I think it has a decent chance. Okay, I know. I'm sure you've done a great deal of polling on two of the propositions that air getting some of the most attention at least in terms of advertising. Prop 22 23 prop 22 exempts at based transportation of delivery companies from providing employee benefits to certain drivers. Classifies them basically as independent contractors instead of employees that's gotten a lot of attention is quite controversial. What are you hearing about that? Yeah, so that one. Ah, you know, anyone who has a smartphone is being flooded with ads, I think on DH that really reflect the amount of money that has gone into the campaign for prop 22. So about $200 million have been spent by the foresight. And this, of course, is the tech companies uber lift in a car door? Gosh, who would benefit from a passage of prop 22, which would exempt them from The law that was passed by the state legislature that would require them to treat their gig workers as employees rather than independent contractors. Which would, of course, give those workers access to things like overtime, pay health care options, and so you know, this prop was really funded Teo to be put on the ballot by these companies to carve out An exemption to this state law for these app based Ah ah, you know, companies providing delivery services and ride sharing. So you know this one. I mean, really all either on this to see what happens with this race. A lot of the advertising has been focusing on the fact that the drivers want this. Well. Some drivers I'm sure Dio, but others don't so you know, it really reflects again the amount of money that's going into this to put that message out. Now you know, these companies came in and really disrupted the whole market. Her hate Around. You know all of these things. And so you know, this clearly is an attempt by the businesses Tio, protect their own interests and and give them as much flexibility as possible in terms of how they classify their workers and what kind of commitments they have to make to those workers. So whether or not this this, um you know, proper successful in terms of funding it to putting up, put it on the ballot and then pouring all this money into advertising to support it. If that succeeds, you know, I think it will mean that we're going to see more of these kinds of things on the ballot. Where you know, business interests are actually trying, Tio. You know, really insert themselves into the political process by appealing directly to the voters. Yeah, and get exemptions for two a law that a lot of people have a hard time with lot of businesses. I hear from complained bitterly that That law prop 22 is an exemption to is called single hardship. Of course, there's both sides to that question. But I think you're right. This may open the door to other Interests looking for similar exemptions. Hey, hey. Yeah, exactly. Andi, I think you know, going back to how people are feeling right now. I mean, you know, looking through all of these issues that we're being asked to decide on. I think you know, some voters are really feeling a little a little frustrated. You know that. Ah. You know, voters are being asked to do all this homework to learn the ins and outs of labor law. And, you know, kidney dialysis rules. You know, it's probably, you know, aren't we kind of don't we elect, you know? Folks in the state Legislature to kind of do that homework and and deal with these issues. So this this constant going back to the voters for these very specific, you know regulations. I think I think a lot of voters are are kind of tired of that. You know what? We've heard that Belinda, you and I, for many, many years with these propositions that air complex, difficult to understand, convoluted, often with competing signs that are not always completely truthful, accurate about what the proposition will actually do. And I think a lot of voters do get tired of it like a cz. You said, Hey, we sent you to Sacramento. You make those decisions If we don't like the decisions you make will get ready. Exactly, And I think there's something to be said for that. I mean, California certainly uses the ballot proposition process more than than any other state. And although it was originally intended to allow kind of grassroots efforts, you know to give the citizens a pathway to put things directly on the ballot and circumvent the state Legislature. In fact, what we've seen is that it is used by You know, whatever interests out there, whether it's businesses or unions or some, you know, billionaire who gets an idea about something they really want the voters to weigh in on and you know, if you spend enough money, you can get it on the ballot. And then again, it comes down to Ah, you know, an advertising war. Well, we'll continue for a few more minutes of its more questions. I wanna ask you about this. Dr. Melinda Jackson from Senate, a State university political science professor, Remember Melinda on November 3rd Just vote? Yes, on no, that's the key..

"The Thurston shows and actually glad to be filling in for 158 aways. 808 10 08 10 for 1580808 10 the number to call If you have questions about politics in the upcoming election, give us a call because we want to get those questions answered. We have a major event tonight. As you well know, it'll be seen on ABC seven this evening. The second and final debate between President Trump And Joe Biden. There was this was supposed to be the third and final debate. But it is the second and final debate because the president opted not to participate in the second virtual debate. The question is What will we see tonight? Will it change any minds? Will it matter? We're going to talk a lot about that for the rest of the program or good part of the program, and we also want to focus on some of the ballot measures that you're going to be voting on. In less than two weeks. Now, believe it or not, after this incredibly interminably long election cycle, it's almost over and you've heard from a lot of people. Now it's your turn to be heard with me. A friend of ABC seven years. Someone I've worked with many times over the years. Dr. Melinda Jackson, professor at San Jose State University. Hi, Melinda. I get afternoon. Great to have you on thanks for being with us. Happy to be here. You're from menace. So you attended the University of Minnesota, right where you're from. They did. Well, I'm actually from the Bay Area originally, but I did go to school at the University of Minnesota. Go go first. Cocoa first, right? How did that work? Ah, Gal from Northern California heading to Minnesota. How did you handle those first winners? Well, you know, By March, I was getting pretty sick of this. No, I'll tell you, and it's interesting. I was actually back in Minneapolis this summer for AA few weeks, and it gets really hot and humid in the summer. That's a thing People don't realize you think about the winters, but it actually gets really you know all those lakes very hot and humid in the summer months. You know, but I've heard great things about. I've never been to mean a Minneapolis ST Paul actually, but I've heard great things about that part of the country in those cities. Did you enjoy your time there? I did very much. It's a great place to live. I still have family out there and and so it's nice to go back to visit. The joke about the twin cities is it's the hardest place to get people to move to. But once they're there, it's the hardest place to get them to leave. Oh, that's interesting, because the quality of life is so nice. That would've been Yeah, exactly very different. Politically. I would suspect that must have been fascinating for you to see growing up here in the Bay Area and spending time in Minnesota. That must have been an interesting study for you. Yeah, it is. I mean, it's a different context in the Midwest. For sure, Minnesota is actually a little bit unique in that the Democratic Party there is actually called the D F L, the Democratic Farm Labour Party. So there are actually really progressive political traditions in Minnesota that you might not think about. We need to think about, you know, kind of the the rural agricultural interest in the Midwest. Oh, that's interesting. I did not realize the Democratic Party had that name and so interesting. Well, let's talk a little bit about what's going to happen here tonight, and we're going to get more in depth with my next guest on this a swell but What are you looking for? Tonight? And what do you expect? Ng as you see, as you watch this debate. Well, I don't think that any of us can say what we could expect after the first debate. I mean, I have to pay to even call it a debate right? Because it was. You know, a lot is not it was. It wasn't a traditional political debate to be sure. And you know it. What we've seen with Donald Trump is kind of interesting. You know, he ran in 2016 as a political outsider night, having never held political office. Ran on his record, You know as a businessman, and he's kind of trying that same playbook again in 2020, But the thing is, he's the incumbent president. Right, so he's never really broadened his message to try to move beyond his base. You know, he's not reaching out to on decided voters. His message has really stayed focused on his core base of supporters and you know, telling them what they want to hear, which Is fine. Except when you're in an election. You should be focused on winning. And that means you have to speak to more than just your most hard core supporters. So you know, I really don't know what we're going to be in the debate tonight. I hope that We do get the more actual discussion of issues that you know, Both candidates are allowed to kind of present to the American people. You know what their agenda is, If they are to be elected, we didn't really see that the first time. No, we did not. We saw what was really the political equivalent of a cage match. I thought, er and em in a fight. You know, it was just it was uncomfortable. Thought it was very uncomfortable to watch. It was quite the spectacle. You couldn't take your eyes office off it, but it was I thought very unpresidential all the way around it. Just it didn't elevate the conversation at all. Yeah, And I think it's It's really disappointing. In terms of, um you know the way the way folks they're feeling about the mood in the country right now. I mean, we do feel very divided. There's a lot of anxiety. We're in the middle of a pandemic we have, you know, an economic recession. People are worried and to just see this kind of, you know disrespect of talking over each other talking over the moderator not following the rules. You know, it really wasn't helpful. I think in terms of giving people useful information and and it just perpetuates the sense that we are a country that's very divided right now..

"Welcome to the good news ride home for Wednesday June third, two, thousand, twenty I'm Jackson, buried the data analytics company, throwing several Major Covid nineteen studies into question how the pandemic has changed the way we sleep, why shoe companies use to use x rays to sell shoes and South Korea's gift to the Navajo Nation? Fifteen US states and Puerto Rico are seeing upward trends and reaching new daily highs in case counts butts. Much of that is believed to be due to expanded testing. Chicago has begun its third phase of reopening which includes childcare centers, although kids must be screened for signs of illness and restaurants, but only for outdoor dining. New York City is looking to begin phase one of reopening on June eighth subways and buses will return to their usual schedules, but still be encouraged for use only by essential workers and masks will continue to be required markings on the grounds in stations will facilitate social distancing, and every other seat may be blocked off Germany will lift its travel ban on European countries, including Britain and Iceland on June fifteenth travel advisories will still be issued as needed, and if a resurgence should occur, the bands could be reinstated.

Japan meanwhile is looking to boost domestic tourism by offering people vouchers of up to twenty thousand yen or one hundred ninety dollars for hotels, restaurants transport in attractions as part of their newly announced go to travel campaign again. That is just for. Tourism not for international travelers. IB proven appears to be coming full circle after fears early on in the pandemic that taking ibuprofen could exacerbate some symptoms concerns which were heightened after Francis Health. Minister advised against taking it. Saying could aggravate covid nineteen symptoms. Now a team from London's guys and Saint Thomas. Hospital and King's college are beginning to trial to determine if I be proven, can actually help with breathing difficulties associated with covid nineteen, quoting the BBC in the trial called liberate half of the patients will receive be proven in addition to usual care. The trial will use a special formulation of ibuprofen rather than the regular tablets that people might usually by some people already take this lipid capsule form of the drug for conditions like arthritis. Studies in animals suggest it might treat acute respiratory distress syndrome, one of the complications of severe corona, virus and quote. This trial comes as the major studies showing hydroxy chloroquine to be ineffective has come into question. Both the Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine have issued expressions of concern and called for independent audits, regarding that study as well as another one conducted using data from the same data analytics company surges fear. Quoting Science magazine surges fear which provided patient data for two other high profile covid nineteen papers has come under withering online scrutiny from researchers and amateur sleuths. They've pointed out many red flags in the Lancet paper, including the astonishing number of patients involved and details about their demographics and prescribed dosing that seem implausible. It began to stretch and stretch and stretch credulity, says nicklaus white malaria researcher at Mahidol, university in Bangkok, continuing from science, chicago-based surges, fear has not publicly released the data underlying the studies, but today CEO Sapan decide told science through a spokesperson that he was arranging a nondisclosure agreement that will provide the authors of the N. e. j. m. paper with data excess requested by Nejm end quote. Meanwhile various studies and a WHO trial on hydroxy chloroquine as treatment for cove, nineteen, which were paused in the wake of the news from the original Lancet published study are figuring out how and if to resume. While, details continue to emerge about surges fear and the trials, it has been involved in this and the possible ibuprofen redemption, Ark are just a reminder of how little we still know, and how even things that seem certain, really unfortunately just aren't yet. According to preliminary results of a study of sixteen hundred people from sixty countries, forty six percents of people reported poor sleep during the pandemic. That's up from just twenty five percent before the pandemic insomnia and vivid weird dreams, both caused by the increased stress of the time we're living through has been evident anecdotally and as indicated by a fourteen percent uptick in sleep.

"melinda jackson" Discussed on 94WIP Sports Radio
"Stay todate seven to nine ninety four ninety four Howard. How you doing and happy birthday on this Monday. Thank you. And just realize how important you are. I'm spending my birthday with you about that birthday plans when he doing well. I'm spending it with Joe Jill how you always envisioned. Whatever birthday, this is for you because you'll have something ridiculous say that for my birthday. I have a ridiculous birthday. Take for our author before the the hours over. Yes Howard is here with us on his birthday for the next hour. How are we got a lot to get into the Sixers get rocked on Saturday night Phillies? Have a good weekend. We'll touch them a little bit later, but we'll start with eagle who have their draft class over the weekend. And look they spent they went heavy Howard early in this offense, which was a little bit surprising. Just based on what how we said earlier this office in about this. It's called a store defensive line class. Then ended up helping them a little bit defensive line early. And then good players fell to them Dillard in the first round Sanders, and then our Sega whites. I would you think of what they did. I you rounds. Well, obviously the fans like it because it's offense. Carson. Yes. And I'm sure he likes it as well. The and because it was an stark defensive line class. That's the reason they got enough Lyman. And I had consistently said, it doesn't matter whether you get offensive or defensive linemen you always going to need him. And this team can't go wrong with an offensive or defensive line for all these people that wanted to running back the first round that was just ridiculous wide receiver was ridiculous. You can't go wrong with venture for defensive lineman, especially this year, and the way it turns out that because so many defensive lineman teams were caught up and taking all these defensive line. It just pushed it pushed Andre Dillard back and they had the ability to move up. Right ahead of you. How do they know these things how did teams note? Right ahead to Houston who was going to take him take villa? Yeah. Yeah. Just like they moved ahead to Dallas when they took Dallas Goddard. Do the research. Look with the other teams you're looking for. They obviously have a good relationship with the ravens which allowed that trade to be made. And they got what they believe. And what a lot of people believe is a very very good offensive linemen. Andy. Now, the air parented Jason Peters, which makes this whole thing easier, and how do you think? So when I when I watched the pick happen on Thursday to thoughts one it's probably just too good of a value to pass up to good player to pass up the fell down the board. But to Howard it does say something that all of the all the stuff and all the height bed. Jordan. My lot of being the the next left tackle here was overblown. If they really thought Jordan a lot of was that good. They probably don't do this. Well, I people getting a little carried away because he's made any has made progress. There's no question he's made progress. However, when you think of a just an athlete that never played football on his life. Until last year right till last year rugby player. Yeah. It was a rugby player. So never played football. What do you think he's going to end? That's the toughest offensive line position as left tackle. He wasn't. He was never going to be the starting left tackle this year. If Jason Peters got hurt. They would have been a little trouble. Although I was told he really has made progress. The other thing is he's gained some weight. So he's going to have to lose some weight coming into camp, but they weren't ready. That's real that would have really been risky vita would have been obviously better better there than my a lot. But they knew they needed either way they knew they needed a tackle. And they got him with Dillard in a second the second pick people most excited about mile Sanders. Running back out of Penn State. We talked about it when they traded for Jordan Howard. I looked at him as a player that was a good trade for Jordan Howard. But I didn't think you wouldn't however is the number one back and he's only here for one year. He's he's a free agent after they've been trying to patch. Work running back together Howard for how many years now. I mean since the show McCoy was traded away by chip it's been five years like that. We're five years they've done a good job of it. They have. But they haven't every year trying to figure out who's gonna run the ball. Now. At least the next three or four years, barring injury mile Sanders, going to be a big part of whatever they do it running back and that and that's good but running backs I still contend are not the hardest. It's not the hardest position to get and you can have a good running game with a really good offensive line. So and the -fensive line can do other things, but they've been okay with J J Garrett blunt last year, they weren't okay though last year because he got hurt. Yes. Adapt their fourth fifth guy. And you know, and Smallwood was was never I don't even know small. It's gonna be on the team this year. So and they lost Darren sproles. He's not really running back, but he serves. To do certain things in that position. I think they're gonna come back. I honestly think he's gonna come that would change this. Because then then you really have a lot of depth. You have Howard. You've Sanders what have sproles, and you still I would guess if there's four four thirty Clement. Yes. And that means small what's gone Adams is not here anymore. The guy. It was a nice story because he's a local person local kid who played bucks county. So all that. But they got its teams only say you don't expect the player to be there. But because there was so many other good players. And that's one of the reasons Sanders is their teams don't historically go after running back set early. What was there was one running back taking the first shakeups the raiders at twenty four and it's funny. Peter King of the story this morning that Gruden when the eagles traded up above the raiders Gruden thought they were going to get Josh Jacobs. Gruden's come on he's he's smarter than that. I don't think is the problem he smarter than that. That's what he thought he thought. And then they realized no they're going for the office of linemen and then Jacobs fell to the raiders. He smarter than that. I mean, he could say that the Peter King because it sounds good. And it gives them some some meat to put in the story. There's no way that Jacobs is going to get taken the twenty two. But you don't there's only one running back take in the first round and historically running backs aren't taking how many running backs in the last. Let's say four years have been taken in the first two rounds. Well, well, there's been a I mean, I don't have the I don't know the answer so saquon, right? It was a mistake is which I think is going to be a mistake Christian. I don't know they couldn't moved up for a quarterback McCaffrey who's nights, multi. He he's really good player. But he catches one hundred pass these two does more than just there's not many really special, and that's the point. That's why teams were taking other players which allowed Sanders to move down defensive linemen and quarterbacks are a good number of quarterback. And that helped the eagles every quarterback pushed another good player now. So they get Sanders at fifty three Howard ending the surprise for everybody was fifty seven because look they get off. It's of line and that was an opportunity fifty three they get mile Sanders. They needed a long-term running back. And he's a good player. And he was there. And I think they took them in the second round because they didn't ever third round pick. And there wasn't they didn't project. Good wants to be there. And they wanna get caught again. Right. The the questionable one was the wide receiver fifty seven because that means the first two days go by and you don't get any defensive players. It's an it's another offensive player. Did you like that picks that that one could use him? He looks like he's a good player. What were the defensive players? You think we're taking afterwards they could've used they obviously didn't like him as much as they liked to wide receiver, obviously because they would have done it then. But it is weird though that they defensive line to me is now a concern. They don't have their defensive line. Looking pastor Chris Law and coming back. He seems to be wishy washy, I would guess that. He will not come. Okay. So if there's no cranberries, and I'll give you the reason to he does not wanna play a small percentage of snaps and with this team right now, he's not gonna play a large percentage of snaps and he wants to play it wouldn't I'll say this. It wouldn't shock me. Although if he doesn't. Back to the eagles. I know he'd like to end his career and have the eagles be the last team. But if somebody else steps up and say, hey, listen, we need you. And we're going to use you. It wouldn't shock me that he would play somewhere else. But he's not gonna play a large percentage of snaps. Our think that's the if we assume the Chris long is coming back. This is what they have at defensive end bar net. Coming off the shoulder surgery side, Brandon Graham and their three backups, right? Our Vinny curry who did not have a great year down in Tampa. But he got hurt too. But that's been his story for couple of years. The species had Josh white who didn't show much is a rookie. And then get her to he did and cherise Miller who the rookie. They took out of need some work that feels thin. I mean, they they rotate that's supposed to be the strength team has been. They traded for that defensive tackle the kid. They pick journeying him back. So they could kind of play some games with the defensive line. They could their strong defense. Melinda. Jackson. Yeah. But the pass rush from the outside if Chris long is in here. I just wonder and I don't know. I'm not gonna pretend say, hey, listen. They want him to come back. I know. They they traded away Michael Bennett, which if you can't promise in percentage of snaps you can't do that. I agree. It just feels like they're thin. They're look for years. We're going to look at this. They took a wide receiver at fifty seven. I'd imagine a defensive end win at sixty five at defensive end went at seventy seven there were defensive end taken in between their pick. And then when they took the Sharieff Miliket, I'm worried about the pastors I thought they'd get out. They come out with a pass. Well as they the first two rounds. I think I ran you definitely take the best player available. And then in the second round. I think he's still have a lot of the same philosophy although need could play into it..
