Fresh update on "mexico city" discussed on KCBS Radio Midday News
"Correct. Holmes Update In a CBS news exclusive interview. President Trump says he has no interest right now. In another trade deal with China, senior investigative reporter Catherine Herridge also discussed with Mr Trump issues involving the Confederate flag. Would you be comfortable with your supporters displaying the Confederate battle flag? Political? You know, it depends on what your definition is, but I am comfortable with freedom of speech. It's very soon, but you understand why the flag Is a painful symbol for many people, because it's a reminder of state's labor. People love it, and I don't know you I know people that like the Confederate flag, and then I think in about slavery and on covert 19 president told me that he's in favor of expanding what I would describe his fat fast track testing results. Thes air rapid tests, they're not as accurate as laboratory tests. You can get results on these onsite testing, sometimes within 45 minutes to an hour. Maura the interview on tonight's CBS Evening News, CBS News Update. I'm Steve Futterman. CBS NEWS Time. 1 32 As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times, K CBS radio is getting the answers to your questions about the Corona virus pandemic. Weekday mornings at 9 20 We do an ask an expert segment each day, focusing on a different aspect of the pandemic. Today we are diving in on more of your medical questions and the risks of doing regular daily activities to answer your questions. KCBS. Stan Bunger spoke with Dr Angela Rasmussen on the KCBS Ring Central News line. Dr. Rasmussen is a Columbia University virologist Doctors. Fauci and Gottlieb agree that we're only detecting about 10% of all infections because of serious under testing issues, given that Instead of saying the U. S had 70,000 new cases yesterday, for example, why don't we simply say the U. S had about 700,000 new cases? Wouldn't that be much closer to the truth? And would would it help People understand how serious the pandemic really is? It's probably question for me. But he's asking you So I think that the reason why we were we report like 70,000 new cases instead of 700,000 new cases is those are the number of tests that have come back and confirmed those cases Thiss 10% estimate. While I agree with it, it's not really a very exact estimate, necessarily, and there's going to be different levels of transmission in different communities. With existing, You know existing different numbers of cases, so we don't say that just because we can't. We can't say for sure that that is the actual number. We don't know that it's exactly 10 times more. Than what we're being able to test for reporting. I think, though it is really important to emphasize that we are under testing, and so there is much more community transmission than we can document and people really need to understand that this is a danger and a threat in everybody's community. The next question says My friend wants to bring her elderly parents from Mexico City home to the U. S. She lives in a city with low transmission. The pandemic is really bad. In Mexico City or parents are cooped up in a small apartment. No opportunity to exercise. Is putting them on a plane too risky. What if they were mass and face shields and fly first class to it's less crowded Is this a fool's errand could be done safely? Should they wait a few weeks to see if the lockout lessens the caseload there and then fly? Well, that's a tough question. And that's really one that every family every person kind of going through. This is gonna have to deal with their own comfort level for risk. So there's no way to get on a plane and fly completely safely. But is that listener pointed out? You can take certain precautions so certainly wearing a mask for the entire flight face shield. Those can help. Sitting in an area of the plane that is less crowded can also help to potentially reduce risk. But we don't really know that much about risk of air travel and a lot of it has to do with people's behavior. It is thought that people with influenza anyways can infect people in the rose in front or behind them. Up to two or three rows in front or behind. People could also potentially get infected by wandering around the aisles of a plane, so there's no way to really completely eliminate that risk. So it really just depends on those people's health status. You know, they're They're comfort with getting to the airport, getting on a plane taking that trip and potentially being willing to quarantine for several weeks after after they come back from that trip, ER or they arrived here in the United States. I think that that's how you can make it as safe as possible. But even then, you know, some people are not going to be comfortable taking that level of risk. Okay? I heard daily. That kid's going back to school won't be a problem because Children are less susceptible to the virus. Where does that evidence come from? Because I hear it every day. So that evidence I think comes from some conflicting studies, so it's pretty clear that Children can be infected with the virus. We know that Children do you get infected. We know that they have detectable viral loads in a recent study showed that they can actually produce infectious virus in their upper respiratory tract, suggesting that they can shed it and transmit it. However, there have been some epidemiological studies that have suggested that Children are less likely to transmit the virus to other people. But again, the evidences conflicting. There are other studies that suggest that Children can effectively transmit the virus to other people. So this is really we still don't know that much about it kind of topic. I think that it's really dangerous to assume that kid's going back to school won't be a problem at all, both because we are not sure that kids are less susceptible to the virus or less capable of transmitting it, and we also have a lot of transmission in our communities and There are more people at schools besides just Children, there's faculty and staff. Those Children are going home to their households, and they're part of the community. Schools are not an isolated bubble. Children and their families exist in the community where transmission is already occurring. So right now, with the levels of community transmission that we have schools aren't necessarily any safer than any other place on DH. So that's why you know, we really need to think very carefully about how we open schools and how we can do it safely. But we certainly should not assume That Children are less capable of getting infected or that they are less likely to transmit the virus to others. Next question are by club's been in conversation as to how far we should distance from each other. When riding in group pace lines. This type of writing is done for aerodynamic reasons, etcetera. Currently we're telling the writers that each person should maintain six feet distance from the writer ahead, which pretty much defeats the effectiveness of writing closely. What do you recommend in terms of distance between riders In these situations? The average speeds about 18 miles an hour on flat terrain. And we do where massive restaurants but not while riding. Well, I think that's a really tricky question, because not that much is known about it. And there are sort of several competing factors that would come into this, so we know that outside, especially if there are strong air currents. There's a reduced risk of transmission or at least exposure. We think, however, if you're exercising on Duren close proximity to other people outside your breathing heavily, and you're not wearing a mask, you will be producing more of those respiratory droplets that people can be exposed to, and whatever size they are, whether they're larger respiratory droplets like those generated from coughing. Or smaller respiratory droplets. If you have a bunch of people, all producing them in sort of an aerodynamic bubble, it may actually cause an increased risk of exposure. So I I would advise. Probably not doing that. I realized that there are reasons Tio ride that closely. At the very least, I would consider wearing masks while writing. But I would I would say that maybe you make some sacrifices in terms of your aerodynamic efficiency..

Today were exploring the legendary. Legendary rule of the Aztec Emperor Motech who's Zoema, the first motech Oussama led the militaristic and wealthy empire at the height of its expansion, conquering foreign lands, and reaping the riches that followed as a ruler he was known for looking forward and championing progress, but it was his quest to unearth the past that imposed a grave threat to the very civilization that he had so tirelessly built. Up. Next will meet an emperor who exists in both history and myth. MOTECH Oussama, the I was a real historical figure. He ruled over the Masika people and the Aztec Empire from fourteen forty until his death in fourteen, sixty eight, the early days of his leadership were marked with famine, floods and droughts, however, his eagerness for militarism slowly allowed his people to regain their footing in the world, he united neighboring tribes, including his own with a violent expansion that encompassed today's Mexico and Central America. In creating his empire, he raised the Meshetka people from almost starving to their height of power with a wealthier a stock received that made their home in the city of Tim not lawn in present day. Mexico City accounts of MOTECH. Who so much rain are surrounded by Supernatural Lore, going all the way back to the story of his unusual birth, according to legend, his father, we'd see legal was brutally rejected by the princess meawhile she weasels father when he asked for her hand in marriage, but stubbornly we'd see legal refused to be spurned in retaliation. He adorned an Arrow with a magical greenstone. He fired this Arrow into MIA. Washy whittles palace. MEOW! Intercepted the Arrow, and placed the greenstone in her mouth and act, which impregnated her with the future ruler Motech Oussama. With his mystical origins and ruthless prowess on the battlefield motech, who Soma was easily embraced by the Mexica people as a formidable ruler, but there was one thing that eluded him the mysterious homeland of their, as an sisters asked lamb. The Myth surrounding this sacred land tells of a God named Wheat Silo Poached Lee, who guided its ancient people to leave their hallowed home and subtle elsewhere Adlan housed seven caves, called Chico most talk, and each of these caves corresponded to a different tribe, one of these tribes settled in the Valley of Mexico and eventually became known as the Michika people. Though the legend of asked land has been compared to the lost city of Atlantis. There's much more real life evidence that supports its existence scholars contract Aztec migrations through books and records left by the Aztecs and entails recorded by their Spanish colonizers, while it's clear that the Aztecs or Mexica settled in this region by the thirteen hundred's. Some archaeologists think they may have migrated even earlier hundreds of years later. The MICHIKA were still fascinated by this idea of a lost homeland. An old woman trudged through the hot sun, Baked desert, her long graying hair blue about her shoulders, as a light breeze picked up, her bare breasts hung loose and sunken on her chest. At her waist she wore a skirt of dead. Snakes limply swing around her legs. As she slowly made her way across the sand, she was walking toward a large lush mountain, looming in the distance, birds flew over its peak and trees covered. It's steep sides and immense lake surrounded it like a moat it glistened appearing to glow against the blinding Sun. It was not hard to see this place was special. Music began to emanate from the mountain. Has the old woman grew closer? And soon she began to glow. She stood up straight each step, giving her more and more strength. She slowly turned back around to base the way she'd come. Said wrinkled face, dreamed with tears, as she raised her arms up into the air, and then she opened her mouth to scream. Morteki Soma shot up in his lavish bed breathing heavily his heart race does he threw aside his covers, disturbing the two concubines who shared his bed. They groggily raised their heads as he bellowed. To my room now. A few moments later it's luck. Motech Osama's adviser and half brother strode into the room. His dampened brow showed evidence he'd been running, but his smooth steps concealed his haste. He bowed his king. I know where she is my Lord. Coach you. Finally. She shows her decrepit face. I Lord I would not call the mother goddess decrepit. It is she who abandoned me. All I have done all I have built, and she gives us a drought tough. But you say you know now where she's Motech, Oshima's is flashed. As he recalled his dream that had been no ordinary mountain though he'd never been there, he had known it immediately. It was their homeland the place that housed the seven caves of Chico Mos talk. It was a place. He had learned to find for as long as he could remember. She is in Aslan. Hours later MOTECH. Who Soma stood at the window in His throne room from his perch, he looked out at the sprawling city of Teno teeth lawn, his brow furrowed at the familiar sight of his people gathered outside the palace, their bodies were thin and malnourished, their lips, dry and peeling. They did not push or yellen protest, for they did not have the energy instead they stood silently waiting for their emperor to change their fortune. If this drought went on for much longer, he wouldn't have much of an empire left to rule. Ella interrupted his musings with a light cough motech who soma strode over to his throne, and prompt his gold sandals feet up on a gilded chair. This was how he liked to think slack I ella. Thrown shifting uncomfortably as he waited with barely concealed impatience for his emperor to finish his reflections motech Oussama looked up at the sculpture of Koteles, q., the mother Earth that adorned his throne room. The stone figures showed an old woman with long hair and a skirt of. He side as he stared at her blank stone. Is She always felt distant to him? Perhaps it was because her son.

Mexico reopens economy after two-month COVID-19 lockdown
"Take you to Mexico now the country looks set to Paul's ten thousand deaths from corona virus this is the second highest toll in Latin America off to Brazil the authorities recognize that Mexico is now at the peak of the pandemic never the less they'll gradually reopening the country from today the first of June this week to journalists on a government level house in Mexico City M. what Mexicans think then of the idea to start of starting to ease the look down on the camera when the peak of the pandemic is is ongoing in the country Hey when Mexicans are deeply divided about these government decision many are uncertain the relief that the economy is re opening because more than half of the population making a living in the informal sector and do not have a fixed salary so for them this lockdown has been especially hard but on the other hand there is another part of the population which stinks that easing the lockdown is very contradictory since specially now the corona virus is spreading really quick so these people are worried a friend even more sharply increase of the cases and the I W. I had the flu shot and this is what he told me the decision for re opening Mexico is being taken since its economy won't receive a long time to slow down situation however for a successful re opening the publishers should be should commit themselves to to be respectful of the measures required to control the street of the disease we are not sure if the city will be possible in Mexico so it's highly improbable to see a rise in the number of cases during the next days there is the after re opening challenging the out by the media and the extremely health services it's what every country is bouncing right then our public health versus the need to get the economy back running again so so what changed what we see today Mexico in terms of using the lock down the economy will be allowed to resume operations and that's the government's case it would be done gradually and the friendly in each part of the country for example in Mexico CD that so far has been dead the epicenter of the pandemic the schools we continue to be close but the construction will be respected also restaurants would be allowed to operate that thirty percent of their capacity be a production so will be respected and the seas has been particularly because of the debate since the government has considered it an essential activity so we should point out that Mexico in Mexico the lockdown has a strong get western he advised by the government and imposing some places such as schools and working centers but not to the general population so Mexico is a country of many different realities and some people carry out on working through all this time and somehow stop the work depending on how old they are absolutely it's the same the world over isn't it is is there any clear idea then why we're looking at the situation in Mexico with a maternity right from corona virus is so hard to just behind Brazil's when the mentality rate is really high he did so one of the highest in the region G. journey so nine point eight percent on the Alberta check over that of the people is fifty nine years so is leading junk considering like comparing to other countries especially in Europe so expressing that the reason behind east another up and then make a **** the country before the coronavirus which is over sixty Mexico with the U.

"Let's get to the conversation with Elliot's Tatan from Mexico City about regenerative approaches. This interview is going to be a little more conversational and we are going to have fun discussing the different aspects of regenerative approaches time for another virtual field excursion. Can you start by telling us a little bit about yourself and who you work? My name is Liz Fan. I just recently got shaved. Because it's too hot and while away from seeing a proper Their status in Mexico City. I I was trained. As an architect and urban est later developed a love for living systems and trained in ecology in living systems designed the Schumacher College. I've been working with the re-genesis Group for a little bit over ten years on regenerative projects regenerative development in Mexico City so are most of your projects in Mexico say the vicinity of Mexico City most Mexico City a little bit in adjacent regions. We've done a couple of projects for Arado and rule and but none built. We did a major wall proposal for trump called ultra nation in our website which is obviously not builds a border wall but regenerate are shared by regions are shared watersheds. And it's about hyper connect not about DISCONNEC- so it's about Hugli. Integrate and develop a shared nation called nation where we would produce all our clean energy a lot of our food and link communities in a fictitious or made up border well fictitious nice project we developed with a mission to the White House it got last Cameron mentioned. This is something. We did in collaboration with Cameron Sinclair. I think we've got twelve thousand hits on the media regarding like trump wants to build a wall. You should build this instead or these hippies wants to take over the world ranging from from all that and it was a good conversation starter and and that's lot of what we do. We try to make a meaningful disruptions in in in systems that are right to become regenerative instead of their current degenerative trajectory.

As one of Stalin's main critics and opponents Trotsky was against the increasingly bureaucratic Soviet state and called for more democracy in the Communist Party.

In January of Nineteen Twenty eight Trotsky was exiled to a tie and Soviet Central Asia.

S. Mexico supply chain for the auto industry and he's under a lot of pressure from the US to open up those key industries for the supply chain he's also under a lot of pressure at home because the economy is tanking fast here so that it's a combination of the two the pressure from the US and also his own ideas that the lockdown isn't really strategically needed and it may be doing more harm to the poor in the country bike at taking whether economic activity than the virus itself but you reported that there have been covert nineteen cases and some of these plants that supply US businesses some workers have even died yeah it's it's a difficult situation especially in the macular that manufacturing plants up at the border there have been dozens of deaths reported there the president says what that companies will now have to do is promise to monitor all employees going in and out like temperature taking and providing masks and goggles but the government is outright saying that they're just trusting the companies to comply and will only randomly inspect so we're gonna have to watch carefully how this unlimited

"Practicing and Their next leader in tackles has almost half of his a number of tackles. which is Joey Bosa? Joy Botha is coming into this game having he's having a career year He has forty eight tackles eight and a half saks. Fourteen and a half tackles for loss and nineteen quarterback hits on the season and Up until earlier today today we got the official word that Eric Fisher would be playing this game. I was extremely his counterpart. Like you said no Vin Gordon. He has four and a half sacks on the season but those are really the only two players on the entire defense who can get after the quarterback. Right everyone else or excuse me. The only other player who has multiple sacks on the season is a defensive back desmond king the second and who has two and a half. But he's a cornerback. Safety Combo I don't really worry about him because I'm through ten games. He only has two and a half. I'm not extremely worried there. Yes he sits where he says where desma king sits in the depth chart He he does. He doesn't even have a starting role exactly he is. They're third. Fourth cornerback. Backup safety I when he gets on the field. Okay just keep an eye on him but don't really worry about keeping busy having having to cover three four or large receivers a tight end. Make him after. Worry about that So how do we negate Joey Bosa And the this game plan that I had was realistically more so for if we had cam irving but I also think that bringing Fisher back especially in the first quarter will be great to being able to test out Fisher and see how he's feeling No so in four games this year Joey Bosa has been negated by offenses with zero sacks and only four quarterback hits those offenses utilized the quick pass attack. Andy Reid has utilized this type of offense before for has been extremely successful and so I think that we will see this early on and maybe a little bit of a mixture of it later on in the game as well but with that quick pass. Joey Bosa doesn't have the time to get to Patrick Mahomes. And then once Eric Fisher starts to get his sea legs back and and he tells the coaching staff. Hey I'm good to go. Who then they can start going with a normal five-step drop up up? And maybe chipping busa double teaming him because there are two interior linemen there. Two defensive tackles those guys whole lot of pressure they just hold the line and they're built more for stopping the run so this might be a game where obviously want to control the the line of scrimmage but from everything I hear from Your Analysis Alice's that this most definitely should be a passing attack which everyone achieves kingdom loves and we trust more than the running game so this might be scenario going to fall right into the favor of the Kansas City chiefs and so that's To me that could be the best outcome for game like this. Yes and what I think. The auto were focused on the defense offense right now but I think what we we need to do is as the game goes on as we continue to put the ball in the end zone on we in the especially towards the second half we start handing the ball off more more and more and feed Damien Williams and because it will last two games that shady hasn't played. We've seen a very he different Damian Williams as the game progresses minus the phone bill. He gets better as the game goes. Yes and he's been averaging if you take away the ninety one yard run. He's averaging three point eight yards per carry with that run added in his Djing six yards per carry. Keep in mind Mars Damian Williams is listed as questionable for this game. Not that he will. Oh not start but I just wanted to throw that in there go ahead yet so When when sheedy is playing? And he's getting the majority of the carries raise Damian Williams is averaging two yards per carry and so we need to keep feeding him because he he gets stronger as the game angles on much like a Derrick Henry. Much like a Leonard Fournette. They're gonNA wear you down with their physicality and I. We need to utilize that especially once. We have a big lead lead which we should have run the ball. Keep the clock running and keep getting big chunks of yards and that's and that should be. The focus is managing the clock. Manage the clock clock manage the clock because I do feel like the chargers are a team that can you know. Put some points up against us. They're a not a a lacking team as far as talent. They might be the team. Stacks up the best against the chiefs in Narrative Vision offensively so I feel like it's an extremely imperative for for the chiefs to to come out and put on a great offensive performance performance. But I also will say look. The chiefs have had the chargers number and Philip rivers number for quite some time and also. I always always believed that. Plays in our favor as well and until that You know that changes still feel that way so overall the feeling for this game. I'm pretty confident. Well because you won't you kind of touched on the offense. I'm going to break that down really quickly especially with the trenches and sticking with the offensive line so do the injuries and inexperience along. Their offense of line expected to try to utilize their run game and quick passes to avoid a putting pressure on rivers. Rivers has excuse me Let's see he's only had one game this season which he has not been sacked. He's.

"By the players. The players union by it's it's been presented to the NFL and if the NFL slash KC approve of it. They sign off on it. If they want to change it and and increase they can but then the player has the opportunity to appeal bill and then the appeal goes to a different committee different group but then if so going to with the sorry that you just brought up up let's say for instance that cadel wants to decrease the suspension or the punishment. Then that ends up going back to the committee and in some way shape or form they need a vote on it and some percentage need to say agree or disagree we can work all that out later on but a at least in theory in my mind this puts the onus on the players and the I think it means more because the players would be voting in people who are actually going to represent and quote unquote govern earn that committee. You with respect and hold it with Take the job very seriously so that you can have this situation like this. Where does something I like this or any player does something like this and gets a one game suspension? Yes and it's not and so when you when you bring an outside source like that end and it also takes away the scenario of it doesn't matter about the NFL as a whole. It doesn't matter about the season or the player on the team. You know it's not going to hinder or make a suspension any longer or shorter which that is a great thing because look if your a star player in the league and you do something you know as a gracious is myles Garrett cold the other evening you know you should be sat for the year and possibly we never brought back to the NFL. It doesn't matter what your stature is in the NFL. If you're superstar not and I feel like that would be a flawless system to hint down the right suspensions the right way and and take the you know the season you know out of it because that stuff matters matters the NFL it matters. WHO's on the field? You know I think that guys like Tony Dungee who truly love love and respect this game would be fantastic person have on that committee because they've been been involved with his game for thirty plus plus years. It's it's funny that you say that because that was the first person that came to my mind is well and then you know a coach. It's like bill cower you know and I know you only said one coach but it's it's you know when you think of you know the potentials you could have some really really brilliant minds that will you know take heed of the the seriousness behind stuff like this because you think of if the other player and you think of the other players families and kids and things and the future of everything that's involved outside of football and I think that's the most important portent saying and you know guys like Tony. Dungee or Bill Cower Jerry Rice you know as a former player you know people like that. That's who you'd want in this committee. Yeah absolutely and One guy that I would think would be an interesting add to the committee because when he was on the field when he was is playing Especially when he was younger.

"That's something that needs to be brought to the table because there is a a there's not justice I don't think within that system as far as the you know the level of extremist you know this was extreme. This was extremely huge. When it comes to you know a Berol on the field? We've never seen this before. And I don't. I don't think that the level of punishment fits the scenario. Okay so to follow up on what you're saying Fan myles Garrett Ogan jobe. Both of the browns players are both planning to appeal their suspensions while yeah exactly But to further your point and to go back to what I was saying and this is my proposal because because coming up here in a few years the collective bargaining agreement runs out and the NFL and the player's Association. The Union are going to taft to come up with a new agreement in that agreement. This is my proposal the NFL sets up antle the NFL and the players union sets up a committee. That is the I don't know what thank you would call it. We're going to say the Punch Committee. We can rename later and the NFL will come up with a list of all all the former players who have ever played the game they have a list of all the players that have ever played the game and former head coaches choose the players. All active players vote on three former players Three current players one of which has to be a member of the Union a discipline committee exactly exactly and then a former head coach J.. These guys work for the NFL. They not work. There's no excuse me they work with the NFL do not work for the NFL the NFL pays them. They represent the players union because ultimately the players need to cirque controlling themselves and managing and governing themselves. Because it really frustrates me. When all of these suspensions are handed out and then every single time these players go and they appeal and they a win and I think it means more when your colleagues are telling you you're wrong? This is what we are saying. Do you need to do so going back. To to the scenario the punishment committee he makes the proposal guy. Not at the player did this. They should be suspended for for three games if the NFL. which in those? This cases Goodell the commissioner if he doesn't feel that the punishment meets the the infraction than he can increase it. Now here's the fun part. The player who has committed the infraction can't appeal the committee's Directive in your committee suspension for three games. He has take those three games. Okay so I have a question so you said that Roger Goodell could change what the committee lay down upon player by increasing it. I think that it would be a great thing to also implement. Simple meant to get keep the power within this committee that Roger Goodell cannot go underneath the given punishment Schmidt that the committee handed down to the player he can only increase it okay so from a PR standpoint. It would be career suicide esque to make that sort of move because unless he hassles are like inside information. There was a reason why the player did ex wires evolve law. Whatever but that should that information should be shared with the committee the Commissioners Commissioners would never ever undermine that committee because it would make no sense to undermine the the players? I and the coaches who are tasked with governing the the The NFL players behavior and actions on and off the field. Okay now and I understand personally what you're saying but on an NFL business standpoint as a whole with all due respect do I say this. Do you understand. We're talking about here. Yes win win. Has He came On very few occasions has he ever under under punished the player for for their actions and behavior. And I'm not saying on that standpoint. I'm just saying Overall you know when we think of Roger Goodell I mean there's we'll we'll put it this way. He doesn't have a lot of fans and and he's okay with that and so I'll just put it that way. That's those lightest. I can put with with Roger Goodell but no. I think you're right. You know we stamps committee so I don't assume this is you're saying this is an outside agency hired by the NFL L. so there's no biased opinions. There's no you know it's hey. This is the panel of people the NFL's hiring to bring the into this internal investigation. Yes and it has this checks and balances built into it so the punishment is ultimately controlled.

"Raphael fell as a really interesting neighborhood to visit to because it's a very old neighborhood. It was one of the first places when the aristocratic families wanted to start moving out of the CENTRO. They started moving into these new suburban neighborhoods right now. They feel like they're right next door. You know that's walkable between the Century Study Cassandra file but at that time they built their mansions there it was like moving out into the country and now all of those buildings they've been there for hundreds of years and now they have mechanic shops in little careers in them. It's a really vibrant neighborhood hood with lots of people walking around the street there some cool coffee shops but mostly. It's just a lot of old time places. That's a really fun place to explore on foot. If you wanted to go to some real neighborhood in a random way that was a working class neighborhood with vibrant markets and just a slice of life of urban Mexico. What would you recommend fail. L. Is a good working class neighborhood to explore as is the Santa Maria Larry Beta which is just a little bit further out from the center and if you're looking for some vivid a little slice of life what would it be. I mean I remember these old fashioned tortilla machines that were just so beautiful so rickety and they would just be cranking out endless bliss so little produce yeah definitely lots of those. I think there's a lot of places in Mexico City where you can find really long running vibrant culture. Are you know there's tons of coffee. Shops Mexico grows a lot of coffee and there have always been a great coffee culture there so that you can you know walking down any neighborhood. Even the trendiest neighborhoods are still. We're gonNA find the old coffee shop with the old man eating pundits. You'll say sweet bread and having their coffee reading the paper. Those places are everywhere wrote that again. Tina's in your moon guidebook to Mexico City you wrote about how that tell you find a little intimate corner of the local cultures going to cuffy shop. What about CHAPULTEPEC multiple pack doc is Mexico City's gigantic urban park. It's more like a forest than apart. It's a beautiful park and it's also the sight of some of the most important museums in the the city notably the absolutely unmissable and absolutely spectacular anthropology museum. That's brings a lot of tourists to to pull back to spend a day or half a day wandering through the anthropology museum but it's also worth taking a spin around the park itself which is shaded by these old cypress trees that have been there for hundreds of years and it's actually been a park since the time of the machine pretended to cheat lawn the Aztec City the Mexico City to pull apart that the rulers would go out and spend a day in the country cheer and afternoon in the country so it's always sort of been this country and then later the Spanish did the same you mean didn't just take over a bunch of grumbling barbaric humans animals. I mean they were actually civilized in Mexico when when the Spaniards came in fact the Spanish were blown away when they saw the city of Tennessee line it was enormous and orderly and it had beautiful spectacular markets they couldn't believe in fact it was all ridden by canals. Isn't that an amazing easing thing to think that Europeans conned themselves into thinking that they just were you know invading heathens and giving Christian faith when when really these were very very sophisticated societies and beautiful cities in some cases Mexico City compared to Venice at the time and it had those canals and an amazing system of government and and criticize happened to be able to go in there and because of a few quirky little lucky breaks was able to conquer Mexico yeah and a lot of what we know about the city today or about ten feet long about the Aztec city is from the Spanish chronicles. You know they wrote about it. They were blown away by what they saw. When they came to ten feet long you can learn about that that the National Museum the event apology and that's in the Chapultepec area and I'll tell you if you're going out into the countryside and going to be visiting some of the ruins and so on you you gotta see this first and if you're not gonNA get the chance to go to the countryside then you need to see also it's just it's a beautiful museum and it's so important to gain an appreciation of Pre Columbian Mexico. That's right the report about the neighborhood called a Roma well. Roma is today probably the hippest coolest neighborhood in Mexico City but it was built originally in the nineteenth century so or the very beginning of the twentieth century actually so it's also a place with lots of gorgeous architecture a lot of ECLECTIC architecture some beautiful art nouveau architecture and for a long time. It was sort of working class neighborhood but little by little it's become the hot spot in Mexico City so this is the place to go. Oh you are a foodie. The Rome is the place to go. There's really wonderful restaurants of all types great nightlife bookshops great shopping cool boutiques six this is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie Mead and she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City and Julie in your book. You've got this wonderful list of top sites eight and Cantina culture mid the list of top quote site. Why would you rate Cantina culture right up there with all the great museums and galleries well. I think that it's a pretty unique and wonderful part of life in Mexico City. There are cantinas everywhere. CANTINAS can sort of range from a place that really is just sort of a barebones bar where the neighborhood locals are. GonNa get together and talk and play Dominos and everybody knows each other and they maybe served some peanuts to place where you can have a full sit down meal where every drink you order comes with a plate of food and some of Cantinas are even really good dining destinations nations the other well known in the city as a place to eat so it's a really low key he version. It's a nightlife sort of thing or afternoon evening place to go out and get got together but it's a very low key. It's like a Tapas bar in Spain is is it a vestige of the Spanish colonial experience well. That's a good question that I don't know the answer because because I mean you got you got that wonderful ambience you know you can just stay awhile atmosphere and fund workaday food in a Tapas bar in Spain. It sounds like you got the same thing in a Cantina in Mexico City. What's one tip to assure you fit rated in the Cantina culture well. The best tip would be to learn the lyrics some some popular songs in Spanish. That's kind of a tall order. I guess I'd say don't drink corona with lime. People don't do that Mexico. Lyon your corona. I think a lot of people going super local that you're being Super Gringo now. If you WANNA even be more locally you can drink the intoxicating drink to talk about the the Polka Polka fermented beverage made from the sap of the McGee cactus and it's been drunken Mexico since long before the conquest and it was really popular popular during the time when the machine ruled Mexico they were very upset me as people they wouldn't let anybody drink pool except for the priests and the nobleman but once they fell in the Spanish Spanish took over while everyone said great. Let's drink pool K. because it's a delicious sort of fizzy sort of slimy which sounds terrible but it's not it's delicious drink. Ah then is usually flavored with a fresh fruit gum guava mango sorte peanut flavor. It's a fermented sap of CACTUS. That's slimy and end with other fruits sounds so good but it's not as mode exploited to this. There's no big commercial production well. There can't be because pork is something it has to be drunk within a day or two of its productions so all of the Polka Mexico City is a big place to drink it because most of the Production Pool K. is in the ranch's right around Mexico. Oh City in the states around Mexico City and really it has to be pulled out of the CACTUS and fermented and within a day or two. It has to be consumed so there's no way to really export polka. Can you get drunk on it yeah. You got to drink a lot. Though it's a very low alcohol content you can feel the effects of it after usually at served actually very big glasses for that reason so you know feel it. Let's head no option. They got drunk on Pool K. Yes that's right interesting data. Eh the equivalent of a of a medieval kind of mead or something like that in Europe would be making a big comeback in in Mexico City which is becoming quite trendy. I would think vermouth and cocktails tails would be more hip but there's actually a mess drink. That's holding its own with its own burkhalter. Yeah well you get a little bit of both actually and nowadays so a traditional nope Acadia the places where they serve McKay. There are some that have been around for over one hundred years well. Those places are PULCI and nothing else and they serve it in the daytime. You know they open at ten o'clock in the morning. They're done by six. The pool is gone. That's a traditional Katya but now you can find lots of cocktail buyers that might have a pool in curtail on the Menu Julie. This has been such a great review of the neighborhoods of massive Mexico City congratulations on your guidebook the moon guidebook for Mexico City. Let's just finish with an idea where I can just I just want to kick back and be part of the parade of local life and either sit and enjoy watching it or actually be part of it on a Sunday afternoon. Where would I be in Mexico City. Well I would say the best place to go is to the CEO delivery format and then right next door to to put the pack the park because on Sundays the buzzer La Reforma is closed closed to automobile traffic. It's this big old boulevard that runs all the way through the city studded with monuments skyscrapers on either side and it runs through the park of triplet the pack and they closed it on Sundays so that people can ride bicycles. They can jog take their dog on a walk families. Go Out. There's music. It's really fun and and you get a really great Sunday vibe everybody comes out and then you can pop into the park where it's a veritable party on Sundays so really family family oriented place people are picnicking there flooding little boats on the lakes there. I think that's a wonderful place spent a Sunday so the Paseo de reform a boulevard Lavar close to cars on a Sunday were filled with people enjoying a beautiful afternoon and then from there head over to Chapultepec Park. That's what I would recommend sounds good. Thanks thank.

The ancient capital of the Aztec Empire is now the massive capital city of Mexico off Mexico City has grown into an important cultural and business hub. You could even didn't say the most influential city Latin America. There's more than one hundred and fifty museums gorgeous parks and some of the most vibrant markets and hip eateries in the Americas. It's a sprawling metropolis of some twenty million and it's full of surprises contradictions that make the city worth the effort. It requires to explore. We're joined now now. By Julie Mead she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City. Julie fell in love with the city on her first visit some twenty years ago. She's here to help us explore Mexico City Eighty one neighborhood at a time duly. What was it about Mexico City that drew you in and what about it made you WANNA leave. Californian actually lived there for ten years well. It's it's hard to say exactly. It's the city like no other in the world and I was a young woman early out of college and I traveled there for the first time and and the energy of the place the fact that it was so close to my my home in California growing up and yet felt so different so foreign so many worlds away those things really drew me in and I wanted to feel a change in my life in that city just felt like it could bring it about. It felt powerful every time I fly there. I'm just you you connect from Houston or wherever and it's you're there in a couple of hours and you realize wow this is a completely different cultural capital and it's not even on the radar of so many American travelers so many people go to Cancun or the resorts on the West Coast and they're missing something when they get Mexico City. What's The vibe lately and what are the Challenges Challenges for the American visitor. What you're describing is true but it is beginning to change. A lot of people have recently recognised. Mexico City is a wonderful place to visit culturally culturally Colin narrowly so tourism has been taking off especially with that sort of younger hipster crowd. You've got a lot of cool bars lots of great food restaurants tons of museums and galleries a bunch of opened in the last decade so you're getting a lot more tourism than say when I first moved there in two thousand one rare you would see a tourist maybe in the centre with their backpack looking at the ruins or at the anthropology museum but now people go for all sorts it's of reasons they go to go out may go for the food they go to checkout galleries and underground poetry readings so it's definitely changed over the past twenty years now when you fly in it seems like it sprawls forever in fact it's one of my favorite views at an airplane window is coming into Mexico City because he just think whole twenty million Ryan people or whatever it is but you can think of Mexico City as a collection of neighborhoods and does make it a little easier doesn't it it certainly does it's very provincial in a way you can go from one neighborhood to another and each one feels like its own distinct city with its own community and vibe and things to do their glasses go through them because your book covers the city so well it pulls it down to size and we can deal with one neighborhood at a time first of all you have the central historical district. What is that well. That's the oldest district in the city five hundred years ago. When the Spanish arrived in the Valley of Mexico there was a little island in the middle of a huge lake and that was the Aztec City the F. penalty plan that city is what today is considered the central story for the very oldest neighborhood in Mexico City so that's where the Spanish vanish after the conquest built their own capital the capital of new Spain and they named it after the people who are living there the Sheikha people is where Mexico gets its name so that that little island became the founding neighborhood of Mexico City and it's got this beautiful old colonial architecture square this Colo.. That's does Okelo which is the main square was called the plaza my yard men throughout all of the colonial era and today it's called Zocalo because it adjoins the Cathedral resume or yes so if you if you've been to Spain. It's just it's another pleasant mayor. Every town has agreed square with the Cathedral facing it and and it just makes sense that there you would find the colonial area era palaces and chapels and grand buildings. It's a great area to explore from sightseeing point of view. Do you actually see any as tick remains he do and I think that's one of the most fascinating elements of visiting Mexico City in general right there right adjoining the cathedral which the Spanish built was at the most Holy Temple for the machine people and when Cortez Conquest did the city they raised the Masika city of ten not plan and they built their city right on top of it using the same bricks from the pyramids that they've Feld and they built over it so completely that everyone forgot where it was they forgot that the city was underneath the KISTA doors. They build right on the holy spot. We're exploring Mexico. City's neighborhoods travel with Rick Steves with Julie me. She's the author of the Moon Mexico City guidebook. Julie has spent more than a decade get into New Mexico's capital from its grand tractions to its earthy delays. You'll find web links to her work with this week. Show at Rick Steves dot com slash radio all right so you built your holy spot on top of their holy spot. That's the Zocalo and you you decorate the the big square with your colonial infrastructure and today as tourists four hundred five hundred years later. That's the number one thing to see probably but a lot of people are drawn to the What is it Alameda Central yeah well. I'll let made a centrale was the first big park in Mexico City. It was the first step public strolling park and that sort of on the western end of the central and the big attraction there in my opinion is the beautiful beautiful Palacio biggest artists the palace of fine arts within that does have Diego Rivera Mural in it a famous one that Rockefeller Commission and then threw a fit when it had communist themes in it and so they relocated it to that got palace but it's also just an amazing building a beautiful marble building and on the inside it has one of the most spectacular art deco interiors you can imagine so that's definitely worth a visit right on the element of also what colonial-era churches or their Zima pump several throughout the entire you're centrally story go and the Alameda that whole area is just replete with Beautiful Colonial Era Mansions Palaces churches a a lot of giant convents and churches were destroyed during the reforms of the nineteenth century but there still remains a religious buildings and convents all throughout the Centro. It's really fascinating fascinating and beautiful. It's one of the most captivating places in Mexico so one place that has historically been the tourist zone as Zona Rosa. What's that like these days. There's Zona Rosa has come and gone in terms of its fashionableness. It was very fashionable place to hang out in the sixties and seventies it was sort of the heart of Bohemian culture and since then it's become a little less noisy chaotic. It's right next to the salary forum. I saw a lot of business people passing through Kinda ugly end of tourism to me that the Warez neighborhood is a little more trendy. Isn't it right next to it. Yeah you know there's only Rosa has lots of architecture to but in the whereas you're seeing it preserved served in a more historical way. There aren't as many you know fast food restaurants. It's quieter. You know sort of gone that way more but that doesn't mean there aren't interesting things there you know there are some really great. Korean restaurants because that's where a lot of the local Korean population lives so there's things to explore even in places that seem like they are little down at heel now. They're still really interesting things to see. This is traveled Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie need her. Book is the Moon Guide to Mexico City and were learning just what to do when you get to this overwhelming the city when you do tackle the city neighborhood at a time.

In a muddy, which is, you know, it was all about molecular. Gastronomy fed another when mighty back hoe. Sunday's Thomas Keller and Charlie Trotter where the two like American guests, and it was all about, you know, super super super high end sophisticated technically challenging cuisine in Columbus took it to this level of social Justice, which I think fifteen years ago, but he fifteen years ago. He wasn't even into this. He was part of this group of fancy Spanish chefs all these guys, of course, not one woman didn't even occur to me that, that was an issue. Right. And when when my daughter Linda was around. It was like, oh, great daughter, so bad. It was we were all these women working for them with them around them. But not to stars ever. Anyways, I really think that the United. States gives people who want to see an amazing perspective, and an amazing opportunity to make change in a way that other countries don't sort of establish it in such a straightforward white, for example in Mexico. You can do anything you can do anything very well. But in the United States, you have clear paths of. Being able to create change the change being impactful, because you have all these all these NGOs, that actually are already doing things for immigrants things for people in conditions. I mean, I, I guess it's because it's the country with more resources. But I've spoken about this with Holson when he came to the United States, this awareness of how much he could do for this population of immigrants who he was hiring every restaurant or was hiring. And every chef in New York, everybody had to learn Spanish because you had people from working here, and none of them, actually were making a statement, or, or thinking of how to make that better. And I think will Sanders was both for circumstances of his own incredible being, but also because he was sort of forced into thinking and actually acting on these issues. That he became very aware of his power as the public figure, and of his power such a fancy or recognized chef in. I think it's he's such an inspiration. I really really really love him. I think he's wonderful on the topic of Jose, and you looking up to him in all the things that you're doing. I think it's so wonderful and so important, because the whole point of representation we had a young chef here. The other day, Kia damone hus- cooking at Le Lido. And I was talking about how Jodi atoms Shefrin Boston. Oh, he said, if you can't see it, you can't be it. She was saying, exactly. And there aren't a ton of Jose, Andres level, women, no for women in this industry to look up to. So I'm really happy to hear about what you're doing. You could easily just kick back and make beautiful food. But instead, you trying to make the world more awful place, and you're really role model for Halloween. I mean, I, I don't I hope to do more, but. I hope you can't very, very honored. You think good role model? That's it for today's show.

These chairs and this painting and this, my uncle made the mural and like I was sort of in the process of figuring everything out night. It was very clear on things that I wanted that I really know don't even know where it came from. I was very clear that I wanted waiters were professional waiters. I didn't like cool servers with, you know, piercings. And yes, I because that was happening. And I knew I didn't that I wanted Syria servers, I wanted tablecloth. I wanted even if it was very simple restaurant I wanted food to be taken seriously at it. So I didn't want people to go because it was a cool place that I wanted people to go because it was good food. Because if you ask me now I think that's the perfect motivation to make a restaurant. But then I you know, I like going into restaurant he's quitting easy. I county Mars now one of the most important restaurants around. It's yet.

Half way tables half surfing's, half make new dishes in the afternoon. With him half expand the menu make desserts. I don't I mean it was really so experimental. It was not like we had no idea what we were onto, and I just started I started taking it really seriously after I made a deal with my partners because I was still studying, then I got this grant to come and do an finished my dissertation here in New York, because I was my dissertation was on the political uses of art, and I was very interested in to exit that had happened here in one at the museum of modern art in nineteen thirty eight or nine hundred forty it was twenty centuries of Mexican art, and then one in nineteen Ninety-one the met which was thirty centuries of exit art. So I thought it was very interesting that in eighty years, they had added another ten centuries from twenty to thirty centuries. But it was all like in these very important political moments of Mexican history and art. And so I made a deal with them. And I said, okay, I'm gonna go to New York..

He did a great Turkey promotion downtown. He was attending a lot of the players events whenever they was doing things with different causes. So when you talk about a guy who was loved in the locker room, he was little because the way his heart was his heart was here to play ball to be a team to teammate not to be promoting anything on the TV or be not notarized nationally for the amount of devastate is so for that reason, he was definitely one of my my my favorite players because of the way his heart was connected to the kingdom as far as the community was shown. I know you gotta get out of here. Pretty soon. Here we give you the. Floor prior to you leaving thinking about the cardinals game thinking about the Rams game thinking about the change from Mexico City to Los Angeles. What will you be watching this week? All the change is good for the chiefs. I think that you know, the Rams had had planned on being in Denver someplace with the elevated altitude. So they can try to there in Colorado right now. Yep. Praxis offsite in order to get ready and all that. And she's just going to just make it a game. We go play a game. Like like like you expect is just one game. He doesn't you know, you're not. You're not changing your routine for the Rams because it Rams and the cheese kind of disdain care of business at hand. And so the game coming back to LA kind of fits in their travel plans easier than it does the Rams. And so for the Rams they're going to be a home team. But on a team schedule if all the things going on back in their community trying to get family and staff out of the way of those fires and everything right? I it's just a a lot of emotions I think going on with the Rams right now as far as being one of the best teams in the NFL is a lot of pressure on them. They're going to be the favorite. So this week. I'm like to under- dog. I like the underdog to come up in in smack those Rams right in the mouth early on. And and then come out second half with a little bit some wrinkles in ready for you know, with the Rams they always always trying to do some special. Trick plays on punt team and kick out. You know, they pushed envelope on on the team still a little cheese. Did she told is going to have is he'll be on his game? Coach Andy you go ahead of guys ready to play.

"Everybody what his value is or and this is the more likely situation. There's some level of insecurity there where he's just constantly saying, hey, what about me what about me? Right. And so you've got no Steph curry there. And if you're not giving him the ball, he's got to be saying, well, what did you bring me here for and so if Draymond green wants to do that any other teammates has been reported now have backed Kevin Durant in this locker room discussion as it continued then dream on was in the wrong here. It could just end to simply as that. But when you have Kevin Durant going as a free agent probably next off season. Everything becomes bigger Bill plash guy. No, it's gonna be hard for you, not to see this from the clippers perspective. But please just here. Just for big win big win for the clippers. Tony big. Glad you brought that up big win for the clippers. No. But is he can't believe he's blaming Durant for some of this. He was just trying to win the game dream on. Tru totally screwed up that play. I should've thrown Durant and afterward. I thought the emotion was good these guys. Keep each other honest dream on kind of the heartbeat of the team. He's passionate. Where's the motions onto sleeves Durant? Fights back to them. I think it's good that he's still care so much in November about winning the game and mess it up. It's gone. So I think it's all positive would he page. Bill. You should go out to a game. They've won two in a row, the clippers have but in regard to this. I've seen you guys have to drive on green go from coast to coast and actually everybody gets out of the way when he starts steamrolling down to ever when you got a guy on your team that has made five game winning shots at the buzzer. You get the ball to him. He is your best shooter next to curry and Thompson, and he's on the floor, and I can understand why Durant was upset. But let's look at this far ranging they have beats like this on a regular basis between playing nothing. Okay. Yeah. I absolutely love it because we know that this is dream on. He's an agitator. He's a button pusher weather with his own coach and his teammates or others as long as it's controlled enough to not result them what we saw in the finals a couple years ago. This is a good thing because this team is cruising all year long every year to another championship we need to know that they care. And games in November. We need to know that there's actual passion there. We're hearing from the Phoenix Suns that none of them feel comfortable pushing each other. That's the problem. This team has come to hold pushing each other and it results real glad. Go ahead. Yeah. Phil not blaming Kevin Durant at all. In fact, I'm saying Draymond green. No, your teammates there. You were the one who recruited him. We'll give him his moment. Let him win that game. The clippers have a great foundation for I know. I know. A playoff team. I believe if I look at the standings correctly. And so case sarahspain, you said that the bad thing a button push. It's like a. Lost. Look at Sarah fade is broken glass right now.

"It's great to have the game shared with our neighbor country here. That's amazing. But this game has taken on a different element here. It is not only the best game of the year. It's one of the best games since the merger since nineteen seventy. There's only been five to one loss teams meeting this late in the season. You want to show? It would be a perfect storm. If we get a great show between these two teams, and we get to share with Mexico City. But if the turf grass is not up to snuff that you're not going to get the tape the same type of explosive plays. You're not gonna get the same type of football. So why are you sharing that with, you know, Mexico City, necessarily and keeping our players unsafe? Definitely try to move this back to LA as soon as possible. If that's the case promise, we'll make it up to you with another game. Makes you want to get back in years. Please go ahead. Yes. Serra made a great point about the only could parable. The incident is when the Rosebowl did change feels in two thousand fourteen they had six months, they planned for that for six months, and they worked it out, and they barely got it done. So this is trying to trying to be playing. Six hours not gonna wear not going to happen. We're not know that that was five days this is nine days. So they do have more time that was preplanned though. And also that this is the third game at this stadium in Mexico City. It's not the first that does make a difference to me in terms of how import okay, but NFL games do update their Saad mid week. This happens in the NFL as well player safety of the most important thing did anybody check out the air quality last night, and San Francisco just outside San Francisco there were fans wearing masks watching the game the bulletin came in that you should not exert yourself yet they still played football game with the fire so close to the stadium last night. And there's a lot of these decisions that come up mid week of a game. And then the game gets played in you never hear about it. Again. That's what he in fact LA bring you want him back in LA. I'm sure the ran back in L A. It's an important game. We'll move on. Let's talk about the game last night between the forty Niners. The giant giants. One twenty seven Twenty-three he had his thirty first career comeback regular season postseason. But it probably has been cracked the top thirty things that pull them five. Teams men five hundred Odell Beckham left of this game happy. So I think we can all be happy on that level. Sarahspain giant fence today. They should feel differently. Depending on what their end goal is. If they want ally to experience a couple more wins and go out a little bit in style. After all he's done for the franchise, then they're hoping he sticks around for a couple more games than plays the way. He did pulling off comebacks like they did yesterday for the win. If they want to get a better draft pick. Then they're wondering why so much effort is being put into trying to win games. Now instead of look at the successor to ally if they want to see what kala Lennon can do then they're wondering why a win like this in the season that started out one in seven is more important than getting a look at what's next to me, the most important thing I can say about this at the very least is it's never too late to get the right attitude and to see oh be Jay after the game saying something like we just got to win the next seven. This is my guy doing the right things. It's never too late to figure out how to do right by your quarterback in your team. And he's doing it. Now, they just need everyone else to lose every other game if they win..

It was giving up the home game to play in Mexico or postponing it all together. It's been characterized the NFL's determined to play this game in Mexico City. Bill plastic I'll start with you, you're based in Los Angeles. How important is it for this game to go off in Mexico? Not nearly as important as players safety. Tony that's got to be the number one priority here. And I don't see how that field can be safe. We've seen the photos of I don't know how they can recite another reassignment. Now. I don't see how they can get in in that in good condition in a week. They have to understand that the NFL plays there. They decided to play there every case of turf toe is going to be examined every twisted ankle every knee thing. Everything's going to be examined for safety. It's too risky move. It back to LA.

They moved to stadium in San Diego in two thousand and three they moved the charges planet in Tempe because they had state yet stadium issues they've done this before do this now for the players sake. They need to do are you hearing anything from the LA Rams that they want this game back in Los Angeles. Well, yeah, I'm sure they do and it's a home game. Because there'd be no way it'd be the Marquis game of the season in the market town of the season. They gotta move page. Join us. Yeah. You should be talking about with the Rams are saying they're here in Colorado training for this game. Hi. So they're Suming that it's going to go on and they're getting ready for it. And that way, but that game should not be played in Mexico City that the officials of that stadium knew it was coming. But yet they had all those concerts. They had the soccer games. It looked awful for that soccer match on Saturday. And there's no way having covered an NFC championship game in San Francisco between Dallas and forty Niners where the turf was put in that week by George Toma. It didn't work then it's not going to work. Now, you can't grow grass in that period. Time any more than you. Go hair in a week on Sarah. We we don't we don't eat.

Marquee Assad every time there was a Super Bowl. He was brought in. To work with Assad every time there was a Pro Bowl in Hawaii. He'd go out there and go re NFL films history for us how about you Sarah Spain. Well, Bill already covered the biggest most important part, which is safety. But when it comes to this particular game, it's also entertainment value. This is coming in and opened with the biggest over under and over thirty years at sixty four two of the best teams in the league. They don't want to have them injured. But they also don't want this game to end up being a money disaster. Now in two thousand fourteen the Rosebowl had to replace the field between the Rose Bowl and the championship. But that was a field on top of field situation. And that bottom field wasn't a much better position than this one. Is right now they're taking a completely hybrid field out and then signing it with a completely different service. And it's supposed to rain the next three days there to to me, this feels like if you have the Rams home stadium open, which is always what they do with international games. Then you should use it. If there's any doubt once in Israel Gutierrez. Yeah. I feel like if there's any doubt like like Sarah said, you should replace..

Brady Hauer the Seahawks preparing to bounce back. They've had a tough loss. And now they have a must-win game on a short week. Well, when did the Seahawks have been pretty good at the short weeks under Pete Carroll since he took over in two thousand ten they're seven and one in Thursday night games.

And it was Carson's absence on Sunday that opened the door for first round pick. Rashad penny to have his first breakout game. He went for one hundred and eight yards and a touchdown. Now as far as what that means for his role in the backfield going forward, it's uncertain Carol said that it's going to be hard for any one guy to get a lot of touches now that everybody is healthy. But he called that a good problem to have on the other side of the ball. This is gonna be a tough test to get ready for Aaron Rodgers on a short week, especially for a defense that has a lot of young players. In fact, there are so many young players that p Carroll said some of them actually were watching Aaron Rodgers play football all the way back when they were in middle school. Now one player that's going to help. Them. There is backup quarterback Brett Hundley. Remember he backed up Rogers for his first three seasons in Green Bay picked up a lot of things from Rogers during that time, and I spoke with Hundley in the locker room on Monday asked him if he's ready to do his best Rogers impression this week. He told me he's ready and that he's going to nail. It. Wendy nailed it.

"If he doesn't it would mean, he will leave over fourteen and a half million dollars on the table, and despite all the drama regarding Levy on bell. The Steelers are on a roll doing no smoke part to the stellar play of running back James Connor Connor has eleven touchdowns in nine games and has become a focal point of Pittsburgh offense. What a year it's been for James. He's been incredibly productive for the Steelers with Levy on bell AB temp for whatever reason bell had fifty seven more touches at this point last year than Connor has in two thousand eighteen but Connor has outgained. Bell from scrimmage and has scored six more touchdowns. Connor has the most scrimmage yards through nine teen games of any player in Steelers history. So this is no disrespect to Levy on bell. This is about what James CONNER has done. It is in a way. Historic at least in terms of that franchise. People will ask do they have enough. So I'll ask do they have enough Tim and field to go the distance with the players that they have on that roster right now. Of course, they do. I think when you look at the production that he's head from that position in comparison to leave you on there hasn't been a drop off. So so you think about it you you have a running back is planning a high level. You've got a Super Bowl winning quarterback. That's still playing high level one of the best receivers in that game. And outstanding offense at y. I mean all fits. They one hundred percent have the ingredients to be a Super Bowl team defensively. They're getting better piggyback on something that coach said in terms of evaluating players, and you know, finding out the why and things of that nature. The truth is this lady on bells actually quicker on bells. Probably a better receiver lady. I'm bill. I think you make the argument is, you know, kind of a shift gear runner and better in the open open field. But so then you figure out why in the world is he more productive than le'veon's bent. Why is that into truth is the reason why is the beauty of team sports in the reality that when you have somebody like that? Everybody else rallies around it in elevates their plate. Like, that's why the why matters in. You're seeing it in Pittsburgh firsthand. This goes back to August when the Levy on bell saga had not really reached the crescendo that it's about to hit it four PM today. The Steelers were touting the excellent improvement from James Connor, and it wasn't just coachspeak. And it wasn't just a way to deflect lady on bell questions. It wasn't legitimate belief that this player in his second year had truly turned the corner. And if we're going to look in the Steelers from a global perspective, I mean, offensively they have so many ingredients to get it done. And Tim just said they're getting better defensively. Five straight games. Not allowing more than twenty one points and eighteen sacks over the past five games. If you wanna find a way to slow down imposing quarterbacks like, Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady or Philip rivers in January game of consequence. You better make make them uncomfortable. We didn't see it the first time they. Played Patrick Mahomes at least not enough in that game against the chiefs. But if they play again this Steelers pass defense as a result of the pass rush. Upfront has been better defensively. Look the real deal right now. Well, it's interesting because you never know how a situation like this will play out, right? The production on the field notwithstanding. Can this divider? Can this cocker you this this Levy on belting? And I think there's no question that this is unified this team. And they've said this is who's here. He's playing well, and we're all systems go. I mean, it you saw the response of the allied. And really that's kind of the nuts and bolts of an offense is the offense of line. And when those guys rally round, you didn't show up, and we put in James Connor you saw that you heard that coming out of that locker room in this day. I think you know, that's inspired this football team. And back to Mike Tomlin. Nothing's done a great job of putting his head in those meetings and getting that defense going and they really played much better defense..

Unless you go months in advance, I go all the way back to the Mexico City Olympics. That's been a long time. I'm dating myself, but they went months early, so really an NFL schedule. I don't think you can train for it to be honest with you amount of time you have coming off of a game a week ago or seven day period. Well, you heard Tim mention the two MVP candidates. He's exactly right in this game. You arguably have the two front runners that would be Pat Mahomes and Todd Gurley Mahomes has already broken the chiefs single season touchdown passes record and also has the most touchdown passes through ten ten team games by first or second year quarterback asks for girly. He's scored a touchdown in all ten games. One four in fell history. Score a touchdown in. Each of his team's first ten games. He joined OJ Simpson. Lenny Moore and Elroy Hirsch who's your VP coach almetco, Patrick Mahomes. Simple reason is is he's going to have the ball in his hands every play in this game. Whereas Todd Gurley. He's gonna get plenty of his touches. But he's not going to have it in his hands every damn it favors quarterback. There's no question the voters like the quarterback. I think because of the stuff that Mahomes has done. I mean, we also just looks different than the way. It looks for other quarterbacks. I think because of that I would go Mahomes house put this how about this Todd grow is the fantasy football MVP hoses the NFL MVP still trying to figure this stuff out the tutor. Down from both of you about that. Well, here's a look at Mahomes and Jared Goff..
"mexico city" Discussed on NFL Live
"When again, this is the chiefs and Rams they had to Mexico City. Both games come into this game with nine and one records. But there is some uncertainty as you will see from a tweet, courtesy of our Adam Schefter. This was earlier today. Discussions continue about weather, Monday nights. Chiefs Rams game will be played in Mexico City in L A or postponed the NFL determined to play it Monday night in Mexico City. But the field is what they are calling a mess and player faith thirty could be a concern. And obviously, that's a you know, you see that. And it gets your attention feel what is going on. If you were to look at a studio OS tech right now, you would think that is nowhere close to being ready for football game. And now six days from this time and first of all a couple of things here one it's not a football field naturally. And if you've watched some of the London games there's been issue with slick surfaces playing on a soccer field. If you watch what happens when the raiders? Host home games during the baseball season. Of course, they share their stadium with the Oakland Athletics. You can see some of the ramifications there and there have been several events at Estonia west Teke that have chewed up this field that if you see a sky view right now, bird's eye view it. Looks unplayable for a football game much less than NFL game that might be the match up of the regular season. So the NFL and both clubs are looking for clarity, especially these clubs who are thinking about their players safety. I know the NFL has a business decision to make as well. But for now, we wait and see. Well, they'll have a business decision if they lose one of these marquee players. Patrick Mahomes gets hurt if Jerry I'm going to be honest to me, I think this is an absolute joke. You mentioned peewee football to be honest with you. I coach peewee football.

And honestly, we're talking about being two of the best teams to p candidates playing in this game question own bed. That I just think I understand the NFL's trying to grow the game and play it in different venues in front of different audiences. And you know, I think that. Okay. If you're gonna do something where you whatever you take care of the stadium, and whatever it would cost to be able to to shut that stadium down for an entire week or two before you play it. So that the surface can be okay. Honestly, I it's an embarrassment. I it's an embarrassment that at this point instead of talking about Jared Goff in Pat Mahomes and Todd Gurley. We're talking about the grasp being a mess in some stadium in Mexico City one hundred percent agree, and I would say this. So while it might be an embarrassment. It's also a logistical nightmare. Coach for these teams who were trying to repair, and if you prepare if you look at what the Rams have had to contend with whether it was a a an awful mass shooting, then the wildfires who have affected a lot of those employees now the uncertainty which less so but still of where they'll play this game. I mean, how do you manage this? They were going to bring they were going to bring families the whole team to Colorado to train them out to do. Now..
