So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign.

The Executive Order To Ban TikTok and WeChat
"He went ahead and did it president trump has signed an executive order to block all transactions with tiktok maker Bite Dance, as well as all transactions with Chinese tech giant tencent beginning on September twentieth. Now, it's worth noting that September twentieth would be five days after Microsoft's deadline to acquire the non-chinese parts of Tiktok or not. Quoting the verge, the spread of APPs controlled by the Chinese government continues to threaten the national security foreign policy and economy of the United States. The order reads the United States must take aggressive action against the owners of Tiktok to protect our national security and quote a parallel order. Banda transactions with we chat a texting APP in China that maintains a small user base in the US in both orders, the president names, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act as authority for the move, as well as the national emergencies act effectively naming talks continued operation within the United States as a national. Emergency such. A move is highly unusual and will likely be subject to a legal challenge. The executive branch has the power to levy sanctions against individuals and corporations by them on the entity list as the US did against Y. and Z., t. e. last year but such sanctions are typically put in place by the Commerce Department rather than the White House and Senate to specific rulemaking procedures that seemed to have been short-circuited by surprise executive order. The president also has the power to force the divestiture of US companies from foreign ownership through the committee on foreign investment in the United States or. But doing so also requires a specific process that seems to have been discarded in favor of a broader executive order. It's unclear how the order will affect talks ability to operate in the short term unlike Weiwei Z. T. The company does not require licenses to operate its network and nothing in the order seems to require APP stores to seize hosting the APP. However, it explicitly covers subsidiaries of by dance specifically, the US based TIKTOK division, and we'll apply to any and all financial transfers to and from those subsidiaries as a result. TIKTOK. Likely to seek a stay of the order in court or be forced to abruptly discontinue services as it takes effect and quote. So everyone basically scrambling to figure out what all this means. There does appear to be a loophole in the order because the order has a clause that reads quote to the extent permitted under applicable law and quote. But also, as Alex, tweeted quote, if I'm reading this correctly, it obliges apple to remove chat from the Chinese APP store, which would effectively kill the company's phone business in China. China represents a little under fifteen percent of Apple's global revenue. But at the same time, the order says we chat quote has over one billion users worldwide, which means it's counting Chinese users as we chat users given the references to chat having more than a billion users. It's clearly intended to apply to the APP globally I. think that would be substantially more damaging for apple in China then losing Google services was for way in the West. I. Think and yet this is the US government doing it to both and quote indeed, Bloomberg has a piece of art that we chat is banned from the Chinese APP store. The ramifications would be huge because we chat is a communication and transaction cornerstone in modern Chinese life. Being without chat would be a big enough deal for Chinese users as to essentially possibly kill the iphone business in China, and at the very least would probably be a big deal as to go to China into some major form of retaliation. Now tencent owns wechat tencent has a market cap of six, hundred, eighty, seven, billion dollars. Its stock was down more than ten percent afterward of this executive order came down. As Dan primack tweeted quote the tencent we chat order maybe more consequential for us tech companies because it seems to ban any transactions with tencent tencent invest in lots of us, companies including fortnight maker EPIC Games. Let's play this out. tencent has an investment in read it tencent can't do transactions after forty five days. So must tencent divest within forty five days if not, how would it ever sell trying to get clarity on this to end quote? Yeah I WANNA put aside the questions as to whether or not Chinese apps represent a security threat for the moment. I for one have uninstalled Tiktok on my phone because I don't trust it. But more immediately, I think most in silicon valley are watching to see if there is. Any immediate cascading of retaliatory actions by the Chinese that could put a cramp in wet silicon valley can do globally. Sources are telling buzzfeed news that an all hands meeting Mark Zuckerberg told facebook employees that banning tiktok would set a bad precedent code I. Just think it's a really bad long-term precedent and that it needs to be handled with the utmost care and gravity whatever the solution Zuckerberg said. I'm really worried. It could very well have long term consequences in other countries around the world and quote. While noted that tick Tock Band in India in June was being hit. Now he alluded to the idea that facebook products could become a target for another country. Later, he did however sympathize with the trump administration's national security concerns. Quote. I. Certainly think that there are valid national security questions about having an APP that has a lot of people's data that follows the rules of another country government that increasingly is kind of seen as a competitor Soccer Berg said quote.

beirut explosion latest news
"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

But the average age of survivors is now over eighty three. But those. This'll be the last chance to hear from those witnesses during a major anniversary. August sixth nineteen forty five was supposed to be a day off for seventeen year old. Takeo to Toco. No Snyder is the economists Tokyo Bureau chief. She had made plans to meet two girlfriends at eight fifteen owning at a train station on the west side of Shema. She was running late, and then she stepped outside, she saw flash and heard a bang. Which you regained consciousness, she found herself lying thirty meters away a mushroom cloud rising over the city. People with charts skin peeling from their arms rushing over a nearby hillside. Mr K. Ohka left's to look for her mother. and. Found rivers filled with bodies took her six days to locate her mom who is still miraculously alive. Mom lived for another twenty two years. We stuck ohka became a prominent voice amongst the hypocrisy shower, atomic bomb survivors, atomic sufferers. Telling Her story abroad many times in hopes of preventing atomic bombs from ever being used again. I heard this tale from her daughter. He got no. Mario. Who's part of a fascinating unique project underway in both your Sima Nagasaki to help preserve the stories, of Hypoxia, for generations to come to, how does this project work? So there are still some hundred and thirty thousand living. inbox. Amiss. Gone. But their average age is now over eighty three and the number who can tell their stories publicly is declining drastically. Just. You got the fact that could have done this. So the city government's in both fishermen sake have been recruiting scores of volunteers like music Otieno to become what they call dense Shosha or legacies successors. These are essentially memory keepers, people who learned the stories of the hypoxia down to the most gruesome details in order to be able to retell them with power and veracity for years into the future do. So the volunteers in, Hiroshima, have to go through a rather rigorous course, three years of study training discussion with hypoxia before they're allowed to retell the stories in public. Ms Higashi, no is somewhat unusual in that. She inherited own story, most of the Dan Shosha, take on a stranger's burden. And it simply because that's that generation of of survivors passing that the these city governments have started this program. Yeah, it is. It's really reflective of the anxiety that many people in here, C.`mon, Nagasaki and throughout Japan feel about fading wartime memories I'm what will happen. Once this generation firsthand witnesses passes away the city governments and the peace museums. Atomic bomb museums in both cities have been collecting and recording testimony for many years. But this then social program is away, they hope to preserve these memories in living form to retain the emotional impact. The comes from searing these stories from another human being. and. So where does this fit in with the the wider of up the bombing of of the war in Japan? For Japan, the Hiroshima Experience became central to wartime memory and park has some scholars have argued because it allows victim narrative to dominate shifting the focus away from the atrocities Japanese soldiers committed abroad in Asia and the Pacific certainly oaks in China and Korea have bristled at the lack of context that some of the retailing's of the aroma and Nagasaki experiences or trey. and. If you look at Japan today, it's of course, wrestling a new with the legacy of the Second World War and its aftermath in particular the constitution that America imposed on Japan after the war, which renounces war bars Japan from maintaining armed forces. In practice, Japan does maintain a powerful military which it calls the Self Defense Forces and its Prime Minister Obey Shinzo years has hoped to change the constitution to revise the constitution in order to make explicit that Japan's military is constitutional and and perhaps to expand the limits of what they're allowed to do. Curiously, the public still supports maintaining the postwar constitution. So in short pacifism is still deep seated in today's Japan. and. What about the the the effort of auction others to to learn the lessons of the second. World War d? How does nuclear non-proliferation look at this stage from where you are. Well. This is another source for concern. Of course, non-proliferation efforts in recent years have been faltering just this January. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. It's doomsday clock. It's subjective measure of our proximity to self-annihilation closer to midnight than anytime since its establishment in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, the hawks are are pleased and take solace in the signing of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in two, thousand, seventeen, it invokes there unacceptable suffering in its preamble and a nod to how the memory of interesting Nagasaki continues to shape non-proliferation efforts globally yet at the same time, no country with nuclear weapons has signed up to that treaty neither has Japan in fact, which shelters under America's nuclear umbrella. And, and how does that sit with Hypoxia at this stage at this anniversary being marked. I spoke with US Akihiko the governor of the prefecture, and he expressed the view that I heard from many others both your seem sake, which was a wish that Japan would use its moral authority as the only victim of atomic weapons to push harder for their abolition. The hypocrisy. Have Long gramps and spoken about abolishing the bomb before the last houses away. Just to make the do. You call. You can. That's unlikely. But the hypocrisy hope that their stories at the very least. Deter the world from ever using his weapons again. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you very much for having me.

Ice Like Stone
"Welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe McCormick and we're going to be talking about materials today but this is a really fun materials episode that will shatter like glass in our hands or will it I? Guess. It's a big question mark. Yeah we'RE GONNA be talking a lot about ice, but a lot of exciting stuff about is you're gonNA learn some new things about ice I think and you're also going to think A bit more deeply about what can be done and also. Perhaps cannot or should not be done with ice. So if you've read any of George are Martin's a song of ice and fire. If you've read that saga or if you've viewed the TV adaptation, a game of thrones, you're well acquainted with the wall but to reacquaint everybody, this is a fantasy world that's day stunt sort of a medieval European model, and in the far north, you have this massive three, hundred mile long seven, hundred foot tall wall of ice that we're told has stood there for eight thousand years is a barrier against the peoples and the supernatural horrors of the far north. Yeah. It's basically. HADRIAN's wall except much bigger and made of magic. Yes. Yeah. We're told it was built by brandon the builder with the aid of giants and the magical children of the forest were definitely to understand that there is actual magic in its construction. But also there's this idea that brandon was a master engineer that he's in the vein of these various engineering cultural heroes that you see in various cultures. But of course, the the real up feature that makes this while unique is that it is built out of ice not out of stone but out of frozen water. Yes it is a wall of ice so. Ignoring the magic for a second here. It sounds like a great plan, right? I. Mean Humans have been known to make shelters out of ice glaciers and snow has served as natural barriers to travel. So why wouldn't a it'd be ideal to construct this far northern barrier which is going to be dealing with you know with far northern climate why not build it out of ice good. Question is a block of ice not just as good as stone brick. Yeah. So I, I was looking around about this and Fortunately. There is already a great book out there that dives into this very question it sidled fire ice and physics the science of game of thrones by Rebecca Thompson, PhD A physicist, and author of the popular of Spectra Series of Comic Books About Physics and I should also note that Sean Carroll wrote the Intro Cool. So she first of all, this is just a really fun book. If you if if you're interested in game of thrones and science I encourage you to pick it up I love books like this. One about Dune. I I've been eyeing one about star wars. But she goes through various aspects of the books and the world of West rose in breaks about scientifically Indus-. So in a very engaging humorous but also West rose loving style. So, there's there's one section there where she tackles the wall and she points out that ultimately this question would an ice while work is a lot more complex than you might think. So for starters, there's not just one type of Ice Crystal. There are seventeen types of crystalline is that we know of plus there are three different types of amorphous ice and three hundred. Theoretically she says there might be as many as three hundred different phases of ice. Depending on some of the the research out there
Coins and Cash: Shortages, Hoardings, and Threats
"Walking money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works how to invest it, and how to live without worrying about it. I'm your host David Stein today's episode three, Zero Eight. It's titled Cash Coins. shortages. Forty and threats. Weeks ago, my daughter and I were at a bakery buying a couple of loaves of bread. We didn't have the exact change and they didn't have the coins to make chain. So they rounded down, we got a small discount. This week I was going through the McDonald's drive through, and there was a sign that said due to treasury shortage of coins, use credit or debit cards. Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told Congress last month. What happened is that with the partial closure of the economy, the flow of coins through the economy, it has gotten all. It's kind of stopped. We've been aware of it. We're working with the meant to increase supply while working with the reserve banks to get this apply to where it needs to be. The Agency of the US Treasury responsible for minting coins is the US. Meant it was established in seventeen ninety two by Congress when it passed the coinage Jack and it chose Philadelphia as the site of the I meant. Now, the US mint operates production facilities in Philadelphia, San, Francisco Denver, and West Point. Every two years, Congress requires US Treasury to give a report on the US mint its budget and its cost to produce its coins. In twenty twenty, the US meant projected that it would produce fourteen billion circulating coins. Including eight and a half billion pennies. One point, three, billion Nichols two point, four, billion times. One Point, eight, billion quarters. Now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the US mint cut back production of circulating coins in March and April. Year to date through July, they had produced eight point, two, billion coins. They said, they were back up to full capacity by mid. June anticipate producing one point six, five, billion coins per month. That would equate eighteen point, one, billion coins. But here's the thing about circulating coins in the US and other countries. The meant only contributes a relatively small percentage of the new circulating coins each year twenty, nineteen, it was seventeen percent. New. Coins. Going into the supply chain? The remainder came from third party coin processors are recyclers as individuals by things they get back and there are machines where you can put your spare change and it will sort it and this recirculating process. Make sure there is a sufficient supply of coins that has broken down. A couple of weeks ago, meant issued a bulletin, which said, we ask that the American. Public start spending their coins, depositing them or exchanging them for currency at financial institutions or taking them to a coin reduction kiosk. The coin supply problem can be solved with each of us doing our part. This isn't the first time that there has been a coin shortage. There was one in the early nineteen sixties in the US.
Dota Pit Is Done, Here Comes OMEGA League
"Yes, we are Doda pitch has concluded cinder. and. I personally didn't get to watch this tournament. because my sleep scheduled disallowed it as you know, but `Nigma did beat alliance in a best of five grand files three, two two. So a very up close series talking to this tournament. It actually just had a lot of mean closer towards the end right to to ones, and then the three to which is great for the region. Right. If the teams are close in keeping games off each other worth noting was the absence of secret obviously who have one Basically everything the last two to three months in Europe So them not being there might have leveled the playing field a bit. It's hard to say how much the other teams have caught up when secret aren't part of the tournament. But obviously, `NIGMA great confidence boost. It's been awhile since they've been doing this well Close finals, five games every game was I mean it's kind of a patch right? Most Games were like thirty to forty five minutes. There were no marathons and no GIG stomps but you know it's it's kind of just your your average game time. I guess have you played assemblyman a game yet by the way? Have still have not I don't. I might have actually. have. You finally been introduced the I'm trying to remember. If I had a game with a I. Don't I like maybe I had one actually I'm not positive how it might have happened but did it was one game? Okay. That's incredible. I mean it's not that important. It's to me they're the coolest items in the game, but anyway continue. No. Yeah. So I mean we. We should just I think just focus on the podium, right? Okay. Third Alliance, second `Nigma I and also scary team. Veasley. Teams at any time looked like all three could win because of how the series went so. Yeah good stuff going forward into the Omega League which is a much bigger tournament in terms of price pool we are casting in that by the way if you missed we started casting yesterday. Yes. currently casting their close qualifiers for the European region and that will be casting that over the next week roughly. Make sure you guys check that out actually I. Didn't even I think we're we're not just doing closed qualifiers. We'll doing some of the normal pre playoff stage so I think other than yesterday. So going forward today after this podcast actually will be doing one series an after today, we have three more days in the next two weeks span that were doing games. And then. I'm done at the very least your your schedule is going to be like, but don't know. I don't know anything about what I'm doing. Is this the first? Tournament secret is. After their break feeling that break has been that long it's been like a weeks is the first one. Yeah. I've been two weeks is a decent on time and Doda. To be honest I three weeks. So just to refresh people, EG is going to be part of the EU division on this. So it's quite staff I mean we might as well just mentioned all the teams team secret navy liquid VP flight, a moon E. G. OG alliance `Nigma and NIP, and then to close qualifiers which I mean we can go off on a limb and say who we think are GonNa win because I. Think. Viking. Is definitely like major. and. Then the secondary team, it could be bait. A. Pires these days think hell-raisers quotas well as get their stuff together like there's there's multiple options but I would definitely say clear favorites from nearby. To get first place. In those qualifiers. They've been pretty impressive. They've been they've definitely been very good Yeah. I mean I think this tournament is worth like just emphasizing bit that this might be quite possibly the best tournament of the year at this point because with the development of covert I, don't know if we're going to get any big land until the years over If things start opening up in October or whatever tournaments right now can bank on it. So they can start booking venues and planning everything. So it means if there's announcements of of stuff getting a bit less extreme in, let's say two months than they need a preparation period. So I think at this point, any big land this year's just very unlikely could add this online ones mega stack tournament at least for the West there's probably going to be bigger tournaments for the east than this but. Yeah, it's a it's a very big western tournament. So if you if you WANNA watch some of the best daughter, this is your chance to maybe watch the biggest turn. It says it goes through to September six is actually true correct Dan. So it's a really long term. So this close qualifiers and then there's a big group stage and then there's playoffs. Are Okay. This is gonNA. Be Dumb to bring this up. What are we casting for? The next two is adjust close squall. Here's my actually mistaken. I think it's just close quote Holy Shit. I think the Games I believe the group the group stays in Europe starts August fourteenth. My birthday and I. Good. Let. Me Just check the America's America Start Sixteenth and Asia is already ongoing with the group stage. That's August. I, sixteen they're way ahead. So the playoffs and group stage of the main event. If you WANNA call it's three weeks. That's crazy. That's

"We'll just we'll leave it here but I'm gonNA. I'm bobby. I'm going to direct this to Mitch. Okay if they do improbably get on WanNa roll between now and Ohio State and where's I. I always ask you this. Where's the game this year. It's here in Ann Arbor. Yeah if if if it is can he change the narrative over the next two much well. Here's how he changes the narrative all right first of all they gotta start whipping whipping up on on teams that they're you know supposed to like a rutgers. They play number fourteen Iowa at home the very next week that would be a big win. You know just to beat beat a ranked opponent. then they've got. Illinois then they've got penn state on the road going to need to do that and they come back with. Notre Dame at home win those games James Michael and then when your archrival game against Michigan State and yet you know everybody. We'll be right back on the bandwagon saying you know harbaugh. What an amazing captain? He righted the ship ship until they play Ohio state and currently and again. We're a long way from from November thirtieth but currently if Ohio state played Michigan. It would be a worse beatdown than what happened last year when they played each other so and you saw how quickly that changed everybody. Everybody went okay. Michigan's finally GonNa take Amman was a blowout and then everybody you know piled on against so yes can he salvage the season until November thirtieth. He's going to have to beat Penn and state and Notre Dame and Michigan State and Iowa and good luck doing that with the team that he's got right now. All right it is time for our parting shots and we will generously allow Mr Ryan now now parting shots guys September Major League Baseball is unlike any any other month that major league baseball and friends that ain't good no survey that ain't good at all the expanded forty men watters meeting managers can load up with pitchers and you know it's coming last Tuesday. We had to perfect examples of how September baseball to quote the Great Building Mellish in Woody Allen's classic bananas. Yes September baseball is and I quote a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham. It's not that the cards and diamondbacks went nineteen meanings or the giants and Rockies went sixteen now that happens no problem but the cards and D-box went through twenty four pitchers combined the giants in Rockies went one better yup twenty four and twenty five pitchers. Yes that's a record. We'll be the rules are going to change next year. Thank God we don't need anymore travesties of a mockery of a travesty of to mockery shampoo. Thank you very much confidence. They'll be dot com this morning about the Tampa Bay rays who still might not make the playoffs and yet are one of the best stories in baseball this season whether they do make it or not. If the raise went out against against the bluejays they will end up to victory short of one hundred they are dead last in payroll in Major League Baseball. They spent sixty three million in on players this year. They are second to last in attendance behind. Oh yes the other Florida team the Miami Marlins the race had less the nine thousand fans in attendance on Monday night against the Red Sox in a game the team needed at least they had around twenty thousand on Wednesday night when Charlie Morton and four relievers offers one hit the Yankees. I don't know where the rates are going to end up. I don't know if they go to Montreal or Vegas or stay where they are but vegas sets up a pretty good analogy about them. The rays are a big room act playing in a lounge at the trump. They spent a hundred and sixty six million dollars less than the red. SOx On players is the season sock signed in the playoffs. They spent one hundred fifty five million less than the cubbies who are about to get an old raise manager named Joe Madden fired the race spend spend a hundred and fifty five million less than the Yankees and are just seven games behind them in the standings so if you're a city that wants major league baseball and doesn't doesn't have it take the race please when they say you're in the catbird seat. It couldn't have been more fitting than urban Meyer's perch as a TV commentator watching Michigan Stumble in the mud. The highly ranked Wisconsin last week. You almost have to wipe the preen off of his face and and this week when someone asked him if he might take over coaching the wolverines should Jim harbaugh began. He got the pre in once again and say that's not GonNa Happen but gloating loading never suits a TV analyst and that's what Meyer supposedly is this year which brings me to a question if he's paid by Fox to be a supposedly objective even now analysts. How is it that he's still an Ohio state assistant athletic director as well as a teacher. Am I the only one who whips a potential conflict of interest Chris there. It's one thing to be loyal to your Alma Mater as an analyst you see it in college ball the time and even the pros like Terry Bradshaw. His love for the steelers are Michael Irvin's passion Russian for the cowboys but those guys aren't still actively employed by those programs how a guy whose title is still. Ohio State Assistant Athletic Director is is making comments on big ten games when his employer school is going to face those same teams best stretch and at worst an invitation for bias. Ias Urban Meyer was a great coach and it's likely he'll be a great coach once again for somebody when that happens will he want to keep his TV job with a whistle around this neck. That's going to do it for today's sports reporters podcasts. We do this every Monday and Thursday.

"To bury your head between the Tigers the Red Wings Pistons and so they're the two zero one one. They shouldn't have been the the the tie the one that never should have happened. He should have won that game and the two games that they did win. The other teams messed up and they they escaped with a with an interception against the chargers in the end zone own on a day that the guy who made the interception was having one of the worst days of his career and was getting beat regularly and then he just jumps right mixing reception saves the game and Against Philadelphia Philadelphia made so many had two touchdowns called back on a single drive and and and the and the Lions ended up winning that game now you could say well well. That's what you have to do but against a team like Kansas City. I've actually heard people say well. You Know Patrick. mahomes hasn't played indoors yet and his career okay that only means that you haven't seen the best of them yet because the guy who does what he does. Running around and accuracy doesn't have to worry about any of the elements in Ford Field. I just see this as almost a runaway. I just think the lion better. Have you not seen enough. Why are they better than you thought they would be and is there all that Matt Patricia might be a better coach and you thought he was going to be Matt Patricia. Will you oh you know this is going to be as maker break year. The guys like him. They seem to listen to him. He certainly is more affable will when he's got a winning record because last year the the wagons were being circled. They do have a new offensive coordinator. Who was the same aimed guy who called the famous play in the Super Bowl between Seattle and patriots. We all know that and you know they. They've been actually okay on offense. They've been mixing up there runs. They've got tight ends now. All of a sudden they've got a plethora of tight ends in the you know when the Eric Hebron years they they had one tight end who kept dropping the ball. They're better offensively. I don't put any pressure on the quarterback. They spent all this money and you're GonNa have to tell me Bob Trey flowers due to warrant this kind of page nothing here nothing here yeah. He had a terrific year. Yeah muscles contract year. I mean he's he was nothing he's nothing. I mean everyone because we've where where where's this. Give them all that money so they don't put any pressure on a quarterback in you do that with Patrick. Mahomes no pressure forget it you know so and they're secondary's banged up the dairy slamming a place a now Michael. I mean you know like I said it helps. If you're a team that's trying to figure the things out it helps to have a winning record cushion and it helps to. Oh and one so if they lose this game. They're still still got a winning record but I don't. I know I mean they ought to be all right. Let's talk about the Sunday night game this pretty interesting. Game Dallas at about the way before it gets a Sunday night game it. Isn't it interesting how bad the Games are on Monday night football. Did you see what the Monday night football game since week. bengals against the three steelers. I Sunday night is appointment viewing and Monday night football. It just never read anyway Sunday night. Okay Thursday night is better than Monday way. Better okay okay. Dallas at New Orleans cowboys trying to get to four zero and the saints would Teddy Bridgewater and I saw breezes this is saying he's going to divide the six-week expectations for his return in the Super Dome in the Superdome. This one might be kind of fun. Do you think he's saying that Michael 'cause he's concerned bus job. You mean the the aging aging actor worried about the INGENUE. It's like all about eve and I don't. I don't think he has a lot to worry about. Teddy Bridgewater on the long run but is this. This is a really interesting game because New Orleans needs to keep a pace until he does get back and Dallas Yeah. We've been waiting for a long time with Dallas and you know Jerry Jones types them up every year so much that you you always think they're going to be something bigger than they are but this seems to be a sequel Elliot. How fast has everybody forgotten his holdout. You know it is just like what hold out. Running backs can do that. I don't know how they do it. The running back can just do that certain running backs anyhow and they just come in. We'll see if Melvin Gordon does because they're saying they don't want to you know he wants to come back now to the chargers and they're saying well. We're not gonNA play them even even if he does but if Ezekiel Elliot's any is any measure Gordon could sign on Sunday morning and apparently play and Dak Prescott is he's got got nine. touchdowns two interceptions almost one thousand yards for the season. He is becoming everything that they expected him to be and they have a defense so I you know I. I like the cowboys this year but this is this is the games in New Orleans isn't it yes and it's an adult to win tough. Maybe the toughest place on wall to win as we know I'm on board with the cowboys this year if nothing go totally unforeseen happens to Prescott particularly but they they do have up the defense and interesting to win coming back and the I just like them on I look at the NFC. I don't see anybody better in the NFC right now. This would a rousing performance by the saints at hough admittedly at home. Change your views on that yeah if they they both come out of this game three in one you know breeze. We'll be back at some point. He his quote was pretty innocuous he. You said they're saying six to eight. I'm going to take it a week but if they come on this game three and one okay would you change your or opinion about New Orleans yeah right now with with that giant chip on their shoulder that they are playing with this year sure I've just counting on cowboys to win that game and let me give you this. Let me give you the next part of the taints schedule. After Sunday night. Okay they played the bucks at home. They go on the road to play the Jaguars. They play at Chicago. They played the cardinals at home and they play the Falcons at Home Mitch. If they could ever win this game they they actually could be on some kind of role. Breeze does come back well. Chicago game's going to be tough up there to play but the other ones are are are winnable games. you know I I let's see Teddy. Bridgewater is a week by week thing to me. you know he had he had a a solid game last week. Okay but you you know over time quarterbacks reveal themselves and he isn't drew brees and they're going to have to do everything they were going to have to win. Those Games was to set it up for when breeze comes back. If you take a quick look at as we're entering you know the the first quarter mark of the season after Sunday. Dallas is three and Green Bay is three and New Orleans to win one. They'll they rams are three and now it's kind of where you expected it to be. You know these are all the favorites who have jumped out you know no no nobody is shocking on the NFC side. There's no buffalo. There's no shocking except maybe the forty nine introducing the niners intriguing yeah there is leaking you know they they were they were they were a derailed train last year because yes of what happened with Garoppolo and everybody will forget people were expecting the forty niners will be okay now. They played the buccaneers the bengals and the steelers and so you know again quality of opponent. Let's see now playing Cleveland this on on on October. I guess they're off and then they play them on the seventh but you know there are a bit of a surprise yes. The record is a bit of a surprise. I don't know that it will hold up. You're not going to get to play Tampa Bay Cincinnati and Pittsburgh her every week but my point is the chalk is holding in the NFC and everybody's. Everybody's you know a New Orleans is going to have to keep up with that. That's my point. We'll see bridgewater can do it. It's a bigger game for them than it is for the college. I quickly on college football. I think we're assuming that Wisconsin's GONNA keep rolling against North Western. Oklahoma's GonNa Keep Rolling Alabama has ole Miss Virginia at Notre Dame might be an interesting gay but Mitch Mitch. Your boys in Ann Arbor have become the story in college football for all the wrong reasons. It's sad really you know. You're one bad loss by well. It was one bad loss to bed winds. Mike that I watched the army game. It's your right of this lost old. Go Go away from losing to army and they play rutgers this weekend at home and heaven forbid that at that game isn't a blowout in Michigan's favor if they have to you know put on a fourth quarter rally to beat rutgers I I yeah. I don't know what else can be done. Jim Harbaugh looks and I like Jim Harbaugh. I've known him since he was Jimmy Harbaugh you know he he was the quarterback when I first got my job at Michigan all those years ago so we kind of grew up together having said that he looks befuddled he you know he took responsibility for all but he says we were awful. We were terrible. It's unacceptable acceptable. It's my fault. You know it starts with me. bub-bubba they when you look at I heard Chris Spielman make comment and Chris you know lived here and played here for the lines for for many years and obviously is in Ohio state guy so he he watches the two programs very carefully and he said on his podcast this week the talent difference between Ohio State and Michigan is massive massive and how did it get that way I mean they used to have you know equally talented players do equal recruiting recruiting classes and then and then you know they intend games one would win five and one would win five and and it's just become so dominant and and they'll Michigan again in addition to that change their offense completely with a quarterback shape patterson. Who's a nice quarterback but you know like shape. Patterson seems more like an Indiana a quarterback you know and and not and not a level if you're going to try to compete for the national championship you don't put shape Patterson in Jalen unhurt category or or or to a category even Justin feels category who's playing now as a transfer at Ohio state and yet he is the guy that Jim Harbaugh is counting on to lead his team to some kind of greatness and you just wonder why the talent level isn't there why the second guessing in his coaching approach and a whole new offense and there are no. They're in a world of trouble. They committed a lot of money to Jim. Harbaugh and they're still he's still got many many many fans at Michigan who believe in him but there's a there's a rift that's happening because they don't like to be. You know second best or third best and they've been that now for a while wow can he..

"Ag You play you win. You get paid guys all right some big stuff tough in the NFL coming up this weekend starting tonight. we're doing this on Thursday and Green Bay Philadelphia. It is a very important game. is more important for Philadelphia to right the ship obviously but curious for Green Bay in that they they haven't lost a game and yet it. No one seems very convinced of their ofensive system. Now they're going to face a very desperate Philadelphia team who just mistake their way to a loss against the lions with with gotTa Talk. You guys there was I don't know if you saw this or not but there was a report out of Philadelphia my childhood hometown. Yes yes sir. There was a report out of Philadelphia that night that the eagles lost to the lions with all those dropped passes there was a fire and I'm not making light. There was a fire and there were you know people in the building and someone ran in and they started their children and they started you know literally tossing the kids out the window. They didn't interview with a guy and he was talking to a newscast and he goes yeah you know we were out. There was pandemonium monia and it was crazy and they started throwing the kids out and we were catching the kids unlike aguilar me this was in this was literally in in a only in Philadelphia. This guy was being interviewed about saving children from a fire talking about catching them and he he had to make the note that they caught the kids unlike like Aguilar who dropped the past for for Rodney. Dangerfield touches a tough crowd. I'll tell you the cross helical. It's like I said when I heard that said only we in Philadelphia. The Guy was dead serious so that's how much they they are bothered by the fact that the Philadelphia you know bumbled stumbled in and humbled their way to a loss into the to the lions and now they go to green bay so they're desperate they can't lose another game and yet green based formidable at home all right a are concerned about the packers offense or do we just believe that Aaron Rodgers will play himself into the season that he and his coach will eventually end up on the same page because if they are even close to the other offenses we have seen in Rogers's career. They're good good but guess what it's a great division right now. It's gentlemanly diversion. Guess how many teams in the National Football Conference obscured fewer points than the Green Bay packers. Oh Wayne twenty-seventh is that would be one of the bears they have scored averaging. One thousand nine points a game packers. I think there is concern. I think yeah that if you get a hold of some of the the you know the delving into the deep deeper statistics on on Rogers it's pretty evident that there is slippage in his play and he is not the Rogers that that you think that people still think he is he still can be capable full of great things but he's not the consistent Aaron Rodgers and there is and what was the two the two big things coming into this season people were talking about about the Green Bay packers one watch day are gonNA ought to be much better defensively and defense going to be a big thing bigger thing in proportion than it generally is with them as to what how is it going to play out between Roger Richardson Toddler and and and I just think yesterday Rogers was quoted he was he was. I saw to clip say we the offense pence has to do its job. I think he was calling out the coach. I don't think in any way he he's holding himself as a as a detriment here I think he's calling out the coach and offensive the system. What do you think well. I don't think his skills have diminished. Oh my God Mitch. I don't know if you're watching in the moment of Bob. The other day is he'd the greatest free play quarterback in the history of the sport when he gets them to jump Georgia his percentage for throwing a log touchdown. Pass is like ninety nine percent as soon as you saw the flag. Dot You know he was going deep and you were surprised that he scored on it. No he's he. He has a taste for the jugular and those moments are built for that. You know their quarterback so get those free plays who get so giddy with excitement that they overthrow the receiver or or or and then there. Are these guys who go you. Give me an opening. I'm going for your neck and he he's that guy but you know he's he's gone through a lot of receivers in the last couple of years ears and he he's got eating the crew. He's got now are are good. last year screw was terrible. they only average average less than three hundred yards a game. They're like twenty eighth in the League for that and do I believe that over time. Mike they will right the ship because I think he'll take the ship over I do you know there's going to be a point at which if they lose a game or two they'll be a waterloo moment there and he's going to a win and he has enough skill still to to to make his own system so to speak but I will say this. Bob They may have their share of troubles but you're a lot better off you know trying to deal with the rocky boat and having three zero record than Philadelphia wanted to Oh they may have been lucky to went over Mitch. It was such a big win over the bears to start the season scratch that one out you know that was was an and it's again. It's interesting okay just after they play the eagles okay then they play at cowboys choice then they come to Detroit to play. You're still undefeated once tied Detroit Lions. We'll talk about them. In a minute then they get the raiders then they go the chiefs their scheduled. There's not many soft places to land in the schedule. Carolina San Francisco in the giants and the redskins ends four in a row they can win all four of those games but they do play the cow games data's quarterback of all time in New Jersey. How Daniel Jones they they gotta go up against Jones. They go on the road against the cowboys on the road against the chiefs on the road against the chargers and those are tough but like I say when you've got three wins wins banked already and you haven't got your system straight you built yourself a little bit of a cushion and and surprisingly a lot of people thought the Vikings Likings I thought the bears the bears have had their struggles. Obviously the Vikings are still trying to figure out of Kirk cousins is is can win the big thing the lions at two zero one one or surprising surprising people but if they're if they're three. Oh and one when we're talking like this next week I'll be the most shocked person they're playing Kansas. City in Kansas City should just eat them up but but Phil but before we get to that Philadelphia. This is really this is critical. One in three is going to be very tough for Philadelphia. Especially in Dallas is playing playing you know and now you're gonNA start praying for wildcard slots already and and you know in that division you you can't fall behind to clarinet that really the cowboys. This is early return to Dixville Notch. It's over in NFC East Cub. The cowboys are winning period. That's over sorry all right. We have to interesting interesting games that involve members of of of our podcast okay. I mean the giants Redskins forget about that. It's clearly the giants are Halfway Canyon of heroes after one. Dan Beats down. Yeah okay so let's start with Mr Ryan's team the undefeated New England wound patriots going against and who thought I'd be saying this Mitch. The undefeated Buffalo Bills Champions of metlife stadium in New Jersey. They are car they own. It and you know what guys can laugh at me on Monday. I think this could be our. I think it's going to be better game than people would think on a Fano the two reasons one at the bills they can defend. I I know very well and and secondly the Patriots are banged up. The definitely banged up off pensively. They've Lost James James Devlin people say well. What's that this that guy was a they gave them a chance to play the game differently than most people play it. In two thousand nineteen. He was a fullback and old fashioned Russian fullback. He was a lead blocker for for Sony Michelle who has last week absent Devlin gained a eleven yards on nine carries it he he he he gave he catches the piss out of the box of he scored four touchdowns a very important player and not replaceable. It's not like say next main up. There is no next man up for him. There is cookie he named Johnson we'll see but there is no real miss him and then Eshelman be sustained a rib or sternum injury last week. We have no idea what his status is. they're they're. They're struggling in their offense of line to keep people healthy so they're not exactly that's offense will be but defensively. That's the other thing we're when and where will they give up a touchdown. They have yet to give up defensive touchdown okay. I'M GONNA put this in perspective between them. They played six games. they haven't played a team with the winning record either one of them several of the teams that they played our. Owen three. I don't know how you make any judgments on any of them. You know until you see them actually play. I don't believe anything that buffalo has amassed so far because they've done it against Cincinnati. The giants and the jets and I certainly don't believe that the the Patriots hits are going to continue averaging thirty five points a game and giving up five okay they they played Pittsburgh when obviously Pittsburgh was was a shocked and becoming the lousy team that they now are and they play Miami and the jets which is playing you know double able so. I don't know what to make of for this to be honest with you. This is the to me this both teams first game. That actually is against some quality of fun. Don't you do this but I could also see. I could see New England just plowing through it you know and what happened. Buffalo what happened to Buffalo got three and against teams and so I don't know I mean the buffalo passing your test or your record test when you watch them player you say wow this is great team or you just saying well. They're three now. Okay here's I've. I've watched them a fair amount. I think they've got somebody at quarterback. Josh Shaw let me start and even though the jets are not very good they still have their starting quarterback Sam darnold before he got mono. They did come from sixteen nothing down on the road and and on a day when the jets were playing well. I I'm not talking about what the jets have become sense without darnold. I'm just saying that it ain't nothing what they did that day and then they played very well against against the giants except the giants didn't have the match obviously the greatest quarterback of all time in Daniel Jones so this is a great litmus. I know I just think it's a very interesting game and Mitch. Guess what I think. The game in Detroit with the chiefs coming to town is is. Are you just dismissing missing that they might have any chance against the mahomes just quickly before we leave the pitch. I just want to alert you to the your your point is extremely well taken taken but they may not be tested until believe it or not week nine 'cause here their here's their schedule leading up to a game with the Ravens on November third after they probably probably beat the bills this week home with the reds home with the redskins. Excuse me at Edward Skins at home with the giants jets and home with the browns. They're all going to be eight. No no water. Everybody hates New England schedule. You know this this. The Super Bowl winning teams scheduled. This is what they draw. You know when you're supposed to get punished yeah. They'll come to be given by. I don't know what's how I don't know where we change changed that we have obviously that's not the case anymore but it was once the case well with the first part of it. Is You play your own division and the second part. Is You play as a division you play another division that everybody has to play and apparently they drew. I guess the AFC with Joe the AFC central. I'm looking at this Cincinnati and Pittsburgh Cleveland and Baltimore so that's you know they got Kansas City in there but so look the Patriots are going to the playoffs already. We know that I don't think you can necessarily say the same as for Michael Detroit and Kansas City. Okay nothing would please me more than to see the Detroit. Lions beat the Kansas City chiefs. If only to just inject a little juice into my hometown town here where sports has become just a place.
