"About adding value and experiences for the students, but besides making a profit first month and Almighty dollar that's where you're going to find a success because that's that. Those are the companies that are going to have relationships long-term with brands are looking to invest Partnerships and all that. It's not about making the money necessarily it's about, you know, adding value and quality first in my opinion. That's the best best platform to companies to work with for sure. That takes it nicely full circle into adding value, which is exactly what PK started this show off talking about how he fuse is adding value in the space off Sophie K. I want to give you the first plug of the wrap up the show match coming up next week watch people be watching following looking out for what do you want them to do with ethias? I can't, I can't wait for the social media to start popping of these two talking a little jab back and forth where we're going to throw out some graphics today, but next Tuesday Night Live From The Arena 6:30 the pregame show with OG pickle and then 7:00 live the two best rocket League teams in the country going at it. Just like I did last semester they went back and forth and I can't wait to see the result a little bit. I'm excited to watch as well. But enjoy watching more Collegiate rocket League. I Can't Get Enough Rocket league, so I'm off. Hope to have another Avenue of competition Nate over to you accurate. The Akron Zips. What do you want people looking out for following appreciate about Akron? Yeah. I mean, I'm looking forward to a fantastic game should be a good even matchup between Akron and Northwood coming up here next week. So looking forward to see it looking forward for that if used production level going to be fantastic ghosts just goes it's a great mascot. It's a great mascot Cody. I apologize. I don't know Northwoods mascot. What do you want people looking out for Timberwolf? Younger wolves? Okay. Okay, if it's the I guess you guys are Michigan. Minnesota, but I like that still that's cool. Yeah. No, I'm looking forward to seeing our our players in Akron players featured in a environment where it's focused on them and not like thirty two other teams, which will be really special. I'm looking forward to it. It'll be a good game for sure. It's always always as a good good saccharine again. The history is Pretty remarkable and both of our teams have players that are not seen yours either. So we will this will continue for a while and it's just it's going to be we're to put on a good show for everybody thought for sure. I love it developing rivalries in Collegiate Esports with two of the dominant rocket League teams in Northwood and Akron have had plenty of success in other games as well. Be sure to look out for those programs spotlights. You want to learn more about Akron in Northwoods programs specifically or follow Nate and Cody follow their programs themselves and be on the lookout for them some of the biggest college e Sports programs in North America as well as some of the most successful ones and then check out a fuse a fuse is a really cool website. I actually really enjoy their social media Patrick was nice enough to get me verified the first social media site to verify me starting off if we loved it. I appreciate you for coming on the show Patrick. I'll be sure to link everything underneath this show off. To our listeners, so you'll be able to find links to where the show match will be broadcast to other a few things and then to Akron and Northwoods programs underneath this show. If you would learn more will be back on Monday with in the news covering the top headlines from the last week in Collegiate Sports. Have a great weekend everyone..

"mine akron" Discussed on College Esports QuickTake

"A really interesting space and one that isn't nearly as developed in college Youth Sports Patrick on that front what exactly is if he's not going to help create a better recruiting Pipeline and help schools and players build this space out in the way that needs to be built out. I think first. I just want to bring up, you know, when when you ask the question to two of the best coaches in the country. I think that what you what you got is they both talked about recruiting and the importance of it, you know, recruiting is the lifeline of programs whether that be traditional sports or E Sports programs or profession. All teams and that's exactly one of the big holes in the in the Esports space in general. It's really hard to Target demographic data to players. I don't know who I'm playing against. I don't know where they're from. I don't know what they're interested in. And so what we have done is try to create a place where every gamer of all level, especially Scholastic in this case since we're having this conversation can come along build a portfolio showcase what they're passionate about showcase what they're successful in whether that be game statistics, whether that be you know production whether that be broadcasting and then utilize that to Showcase where they are amongst their peers and that's what we've done with the pipeline, right? You know, we are doing things behind the scenes to help these coaches off add value and those are combines every Sunday. Both of these coaches are constantly they're working every Sunday when you look at, you know, putting in the work putting in the effort and that's why they're programmed. Are rewarded but what we want to do is we want to take and go find that Talent across the country across the world and showcase what opportunities exist in the Collegiate scene and then spread that Talent amongst other programs and probably coachmaker and Coach Ellison doesn't want to hear that because they want to stay on the top. But what I know about them is that they're super competitive and they put the community away before themselves. And so they know that wage is definitely needed for the betterment of the future of Collegiate e sports but also for the students and the opportunities that are going to exist coming down the road. Well, how about a coaches? Are you guys happy with the status quo and you want it to continue because you're dominating currently. Yeah, I I definitely agree with Patrick. I think that while the status quo would benefit us in the short-term. It definitely doesn't benefit us in the long term Collegian Esports needs more competition across a bigger number a larger number of Collegiate programs and some of this is going to be National but I think a larger push is going to be Regional where you're going to be competing against the schools that you would normally compete against at your University level. So if you're in a bigger division or a smaller division finding areas for those schools to also raise up their reports game, so you can drive those relationships that have already been established through traditional Sports and rivalries that already exists within the university realm and making sure that those are pushed for them. I really think that's where we're going to see a lot more development in the Esports realm in the near future. It is a very interesting area where you have the varsity teams are kind of sporadically spread out around the u.s. Missouri is one Hub, California has a few teams there and then Pennsylvania quite a few teams around their Michigan as well. How do you balance on those traditional Sports rivalries when you know, every school is in like a various stage of its level of support for you Sports. I mean I'd say I mean when you talk about rivalries and stuff like that, you're talking like in the state level. I guess it's hard for like in Michigan. For example, there's not really A lot of the games we compete in there's not really anybody else kind of investing like we are at that high level. So it's hard. So it's easier to create rivalries. I guess across North America and I feel like that's what we've done that I mean definitely could say akron's probably, you know, a rival of our for Rocket League just because the history has been insane without clothes the series. I think I said it earlier in a interview. I think we took 28 games. They've 129 across all of our series it's about as tight as it gets when it comes to Collision Esports and it's going to be hard to really, you know, have those rivalries and tell other programs start investing and off better Talent cuz you know, it's likeif use it so important cuz they're able to find such good talent around the world really is you have a lot of these colleges just picking up somebody that just plays a game and wants to play, you know Collision a sports that really doesn't have that competitive experience or drive. So that's where a lot of the huge disparity and fall off is so it's really hard to you know, manage and cream. Rivalries when a lot of times it's just the competition so one-sided, you know. Definitely and you're creating new rivalries as well. There's both are true as you have these existing rivalries, but the the new rivalry is almost just as good 28th to 29th. That's crazy in college rocket League Nate. What is a rivalry do for college youth sports program like that. Like why is it important to have those so I think it's for a couple of reasons one. It gives the players on both sides another team that they're familiar with that. I don't want to say they can Target as an enemy because it's not an enemy really bummed is more of a friendly rivalry that you have between two programs that constantly go back and forth and compete with one another one thing that we haven't seen a lot of in Collegiate Sports. Is that consistent level of High play like Cody mentioned and you'll also see that very rarely. Do you play against the same team season in and season change? Out a lot of times you'll play against random teams from all over the place that at this point doesn't help to drive a lot of those rivalries because many games especially when you're playing on one of the higher-level teams are blowouts when you're playing against those teams that have lower level Talent or they or they don't have a program that's invested behind them. So one thing that it does help is it home those players drive that rivalry and provide that friendly atmosphere for them to compete and then addition to that it helps the school who is providing the program. It gives them something to Market there for them. It's always much more exciting to go against high level or High Caliber of skill rival than it is to go against a school that does not have any Talent behind them when you know, it's just a blowout in one way or another so giving that school the ability to market for that game getting students excited for that high-level competition is definitely a benefit for having those Rivals and I just want to make sure Point too and I think this is so why we are you know doubling down on making sure that we can provide some of these platforms like the effuse Collegiate show match, right? It's so important for the church structure and the community for them to have Heroes. That's I mean think about when you grew up you you you routed on what your parents routed on maybe not, you know, maybe you you then change when she went to college and and in order to build that fandom that really helps the community grow. That's why we have to tell stories and that's why you know, we're sitting here today with you is like you're doing a great job with that. We want to a t fuse do a great job of that. There's Publishers that do a great job of that in our committed to that but we need more of that, you know, we need to know who the best players in Rockaway. They are we need to know who the best teams are. That's why the coach is full of so important for us, but it's also a story of how can we get more of this? How can we do this in a really cool hip wage? If I'm a young High School rocket League player, I want to be you know, the next Tristan right that that's what we need more of and I'm so excited to see if users committed to that and we're willing to invest our time and energy to make sure that these the great work that Nate and Cody are putting in with their programs and there's so many others that we can help tell those stories..

Do Some Fabrics Make Body Odor Worse?

"Of athletic wear and outdoors gear is labeled with claims. That it'll help wick away sweat and keep you spelling as fresh as if you just stepped of the shower in this episode. We look at how those claims can possibly be true and how they can sometimes fall through. Pay their brain steph. Lorraine bogo bomb here. If you're preparing for a hike especially one that involves sleeping under the stars. Every last than you pack should be questioned. Will you need rain gear. One walking stick or two which freeze dried. Snacks are actually tasty enough to eat. One essential rule from experienced hikers is no cotton clothing. Clothes made of cotton can act as a sponge. The material soaks up sweat and holds moisture next to the skin which eliminates the insulating effect of the cotton skin irritation and eventually leads to copious amounts of body odor body odor isn't a personal affront. Temperature becomes high enough to cause certain. Glands secrete fluid onto the surface of the skin is at risk for emanating at least a little bit and it isn't without purpose sweat produced by the akron. Glands that cover most of the body helps regulate body temperature while the milky or fluid released by the epa korean glands. The armpits and groin area is a signal that the body is under stress. African glands are primarily responsible for body odor and although akron. Glands secrete primarily odorless sweat. The smell produced by this sweat changes over time perspiration acts as a magnet tha bacteria on the skin and these bacteria use it as fuel to multiply. When the growing numbers of bacteria metabolize sweat they produce a smelly byproduct commonly called body odor. Clearly cotton isn't the right choice for working up a sweat. Since it can actually make body odor worse. But what about other types of fabrics do all fabrics increase a person's propensity to develop body odor the key to using clothing to prevent or lessen body odor lows in the fabrics ability to release sweat quickly before bacteria can begin to feast on it. There are natural and man-made fabrics that expertly wick moisture away from the skin to the edge of the material where it can evaporate other fabrics however we'll trap moisture in the fabric. And on the skin and make body odor worse a fabrics ability to transmit and released moisture is known as breathe ability. Which is the common term for the moisture vapor transmission rate or mvp tr. The mvp are calculating. How many grams of moisture move through a square meter of fabric in two thousand four hours. Generally the greater the mvp are the less likely the fabric is to absorb and retain odor causing moisture. You may be thinking great. Now all i have to do is find clothing label breathable and be. Oh we'll be a problem of the past not so fast. There's not an industry standard regarding breath ability nearly any label can carry the term usually preceded by words like or extremely. This means you'll need to arm yourself with information about specific fabrics rather than relying on label hype as a guide natural fabrics created from the fibers of animals. Bugs or plants are a good place to start. You'll want to steer clear of one hundred percent cotton fabrics because they take a long time to dry and will allow body odor to bloom. In the meantime this is largely. Because one hundred percent cotton fabrics are composed of fibers that swell with moisture and thereby reduce the pores of the fabric of other natural fabrics absorb and release sweat quickly including hemp fabric woven from these stem fibers of the cannabis. Sativa plant and linen women from flax stems. Well it sounds counter intuitive to wear wool to prevent body odor. This natural fiber is an excellent choice will absorb up to thirty six percent of its weight in moisture without feeling wet and will dry quickly. We'll also releases minute amounts of body heat as it absorbs moisture so it will help keep you cool. Plus we'll is naturally antibacterial which means you can wear it. Sweating it and keep wearing it sometimes. For consecutive days without reading when it comes to making body odor worse synthetic fabrics tend to trap odors at a greater rate the natural fabrics although many of these manmade fabrics like polyester are quick to wick moisture away from the skin and equally quick to dry. Their construction can up the stink quotient within the wave of synthetic moisture waking fabrics are notches designed to pool. Manute amounts of sweat as it. Transfers from the inner layer to the outer layer of the fabric. The concept is a good one as the moisture will generally evaporate once it reaches the fabrics outer layer. The problem is that as sweat collects in the nooks and crannies of the fabric on its way to freedom. It is devoured by bacteria that have themselves made home in those same recesses. This traps body odor. Within the fabric to reduce rowdy odors look for static fabrics that haven't an added antimicrobial ingredient for example the addition of silver polyester or spandex fibers can help prevent body. Odor from accumulating silver nanoparticles. That's particles so small that eighty thousand of them could fit within. The diameter of a human hair can be integrated into synthetic fabric when they get wet. The silver nanoparticles released silver ions that initially slow the growth of odor causing bacteria and eventually kill them off. Altogether some fabrics are infused with a different type of odor inhibiting agent molecules of volcanic ash. The ash molecules have a pore size that similar to that of an odor molecule when the to meet the odor molecule is adsorb and trapped within the ash molecule this prevents the odor molecule from releasing its characteristic smell until the fabric is washed in warm water to prevent body odor. Look for clothing made from fabrics. That will help keep you dry and have the added might of antimicrobial helpers and don't forget the antiperspirant or

Applications and Impact of CRISPR/CAS9 in Bioprocessing

"Today. I'm joined by fanling. Wong director of cell line development and protein sciences and zane starkey wolf director of corporate development from wishy biologics. I'm excited to be speaking with both of you. Today about crisper cast nine technology and its possibilities in the discovery and development biopharmaceuticals. We will also conduct a deep dive on its potential impact on bioprocessing and bio manufacturing. Welcome fanling and zane to the podcast. Zinke randy glad to be here. Thank you brandy before we get too far and because of our audience is quite diverse with regards to their experiences in life sciences. Fenland could you please provide some background on. Crisper cast nine as molecular biology. Gene editing tool. Yeah sure so christmas. Nineteen action system is actually adapted from a natural procure arctic defense mechanism to bacteria to simplify. What could spec assistant can do is took leave the face she and i was. It has been incorporated into the bacteria routine on so that to keep the fate from reproducing. Crisper is actually akron stands for clusters servers regularly interspace. Shot had a dramatic repeats and kissed by the most well well-researched variant of the class outcasts nucleus. Which has been used within the gene editing function. So i think the research community have actually adapted this mechanism to revolutionize how we perform the genetic modifications Not only in pro arctic. But or so. You can arctic sales since the system was first published and zane i know from our previous conversations that you were saying that crisper casts has an intriguing origin. Would you be able to elaborate. Yes interesting research can be found on crisper that dates back to the late. Eighty s Other work has been conducted throughout the first decade of the two thousand however it wasn't until two thousand twelve that two pivotal research papers were published in the journal. Science one by jennifer down nov uc berkeley and manual shopping chair of the university of vienna and then another pianist by doctors cross unanimous and sickness at vilnius university. All demonstrating the use of bacterial. Crisper cast nine as simple programmable. Gene editing jewel. But i know that the story doesn't stop there does it no. It certainly does not in less than a year in two thousand thirteen. The labs of dr fung jong and will chong of the burden student. Mit dr george. Church's lab at harvard reported success in adapting. Crisper cast nine for genome editing in your area cells and both mouse and human cells. And i know that we could really spend an entire podcast. Just on the history of crisper so i wanted to stay focused on the technology here. There's been a lot of excitement since discovery about this molecular biology tool. Can you explain why. Sure the remarkable functionality of this tool is that it allows scientists to target specific locations within the genetic code of an organism to cut out or replace a segment of dna due to the high specificity and exactness of utility. The applications have far reaching potential. And it has already become a much to walks game changer. In many fields of life science because it enables efficient cost effective and precision gene. Editing that has a wide utility for development of biological therapeutics including so and gene therapy disease modeling diagnostics agriculture industrial biology and more. And this has me thinking just about alternatives to crisper casts altogether Are there other ways to edit genomes. And if so what makes a crisper cast so much better. Great question brandy many of the other gene editing systems utilize today such as zinc finger. Nicholas's talons the use of mega nick. Liaises or other by all vectors like a. Iv compared with christopher cast nine are in the end very complex and time intensive often requiring many more steps and thus are more costly as well also and this may be greatest benefit. Is that crisper chess. Nine as a low off target affects profile which again makes it an ideal gene. Editing tool justify along with that. I've read many Recent advances using crisper technologies. Could you elaborate a little bit on those. The advances are extensive and continuous. We speak one example includes crisper a crisper i which are techniques to up and down regulate gene expression using dead cast nine dead cast nine removed the nucleus capability of cast nine but still allows for the targeted binding to a double stranded. Dna sequence of interest using the highway. Specific guide are a that is one of the cornerstones of crisper genome editing. I'd like to add that another application. It's a using crisper for hamas directed repel or so called a the are so this technique in simple terms can repel a double stranded. Dna break which is very important for genus ability. But what does the crisper made. Sdr can do is that. It cannot only to repel a break. But or so crew. Eight the break and then replace it with a small mutation or as elijah sequences so this techniques have actually substantially opened ability or researchers to make gino added more quickly and more efficiently

Interview With Signet EVP And Global CIO Howard Melnick

"Howard melnik. Welcome to second ovation. Thank you peter adding me. That's a pleasure. I thought we begin a howard with your your role. You're the executive vice president global chief information officer of signet. And i wonder if you could take a moment for those who may be less familiar with the company. Can you provide a brief overview as to what you all do. Let me tell you a little bit about my role and a little about signet. So i i've been at signet for about two and a half years and drew me to signet was that the company was launching transformation with a digital focus and a real customer first mentality. My sweet spot has always been integrating business and technology to create value as you mentioned. I'm accountable for information technology as well as analytics programs really focusing on things like being customer centric digital first or accelerating our cloud adoption and using analytics with machine learning in ai the Overall focus is really on driving business value. I part very closely with both our chief innovation officer arner chief digital officer To really create a world class customer experience. And so peter as you mentioned many people may not know the name sick but you're probably really familiar with the brands that we represent so first. Six cygnets mission is to celebrate life and express love so kind of what a what a great place to work at a particularly in these times where the world's largest retailer diamond jewelry and the largest specialty retailer in the us the uk and canada the brands that we have our kay jewelers zales. Jared piercing pagoda people's jewelers in canada h samuel and ernest jones in the uk and james allen which is actually a digitally native company which was a out of tel. Aviv's will thank you for that overview howard. I appreciate it Would love to talk a little bit about your your current strategy. I know from our past conversations that you've talked about the aspects like the path brilliants Some of the omni channel type aspects that you're doing and so on maybe you can dive a little bit further into some of the details of those if you would okay. Great peter so. I let me give a little background which i think really helps frame up the business strategy so signet. The group was founded in nineteen forty nine and grew organically until the late eighties early nineties. Back in february of two thousand fourteen signet acquired zales corporation which was based in dallas. And then two thousand seventeen we purchased to net. Which are the owner of the company. James allen which really starts to be our innovation hub so these acquisitions were great because they gave us breath and scale but gave me the ability now to say i have multiple technologies. Or how do i leverage that scale but at the same time be able to create really unique experiences by brand for our customers so with that we born are packed. Brilliant strategy now if you go back and think five or ten years ago. Julia was not a big on line. Purchase category jewelries intricate people. It wasn't a book and so we started to develop a strategy back in two thousand eighteen. That had three strategic pillars the customer first on the channel with a digital focus and building a culture of agility inefficiency and so peter when we last spoke which was about eighteen months ago we were just in kind of wrapping up to your one and one for us was fixing operational issues building a foundation getting us ready ear to came and that's really what strengthening our foundation rebuilding on the channel capabilities. We're actually getting us more product diversity and starting to really focus on innovation and then in year three where we sit now when we really were gaining momentum cova hit and coded for us was actually an accelerate. I would say in two months of kobe. We probably did two years worth of work. And so many companies kind of shutdown. We really started to accelerate areas of digital growth. And i think what we've seen is customer treads also accelerated things like buying line up in store curbside pickup. These are things that were kind of emerging at at slow pace but have really accelerated. I think in a post covid world are going to last forever very interesting and talk. Talk a bit if you will about the the way in which that. It strategy that path the brilliance supports the broader enterprise strategy with paths brilliance laid out. We developed an it strategy that had four key areas. I was when i called fix improved so a certain areas that we inherited that we wanted to make better Around people process technology data than the next area was with multiple brands. What are the areas. I should harmonize and then modernize and then the last area was really around innovation when we think of innovation innovation for us isn't just catch up. Its halloway leapfrog the competition. What can i do to really position as well so let me walk you through each one of those areas in some of the give some examples of things we did so if we look at one of the first area which was fixing improve. I'm a big fan of jim collins. The author good to great and one of the things he says. Is you get the right people on the bus. So the first thing we did is get the right people on the bus and then we started to look at our operating model and so since we had grown up with multiple banners multiple campuses traditionally were organized by technology by geography with some people sitting in akron in some people sitting in dallas. What we wanted to do is organize by foce. And so we started to make that shift where e-commerce team moved from traditional project teams to product teams but in other areas we started to leverage the concept centers of excellence particularly around areas like integration. Devops testing analytics.

Biden Plans To Bring Vilsack Back To USDA, Despite Criticism From Reformers

"President elect biden is ready to announce to more cabinet nominations. This morning one name is familiar. Biden wants tom. Vilsek who served as secretary of agriculture in the obama administration to return to that same job and he's nominating congresswoman marcia fudge to be secretary of housing and urban development. This is interesting. A lot of people had been urging biden depict fudge for the agriculture job instead. Joining me now is. Npr's dan charles who covers food and agriculture. For i dan. Good morning david well. Let's talk about representative. Marcia fudge what why were so many people pushing for her to get the job. So there's an interesting thing about the department of agriculture. It was set up to help farmers back when farmers were half of the country. And it's still does a lot of that but the country has changed and the biggest part of the usda's budget now is nutrition aid. You know the supplemental nutrition assistance program snyder's school lunches and marcia fudge has been one of the fiercest defenders of those nutrition programs on capitol hill. She represents a district that includes much of cleveland also akron ohio. She's been on the house. Agriculture committee she and her supporters felt. It was high time for the top. Usda job to go to somebody who saw those nutrition programs as the department's big priority and not just sort of a change in emphasis but this would have been a historic break with the past In that job she's a black woman is she would have been the first black woman in that job. Only the second woman Period also. There's another thing you know. Most agriculture secretaries have been connected somehow to farming or farming areas. She's from city. Well you know in the end it did not happen. David will now be nominated. Apparently to be secretary of housing and urban development instead and for agriculture biden went for somebody much more traditional. Tom vilsek may be part. Two former governor of iowa who becoming back into the same job at that he served on president obama right. He was secretary of agriculture. For all eight years of the obama administration but apparently that was not enough for him. He's okay middle of the road described as even-handed certainly knows the issues but some of those anti-hunger groups and environmental advocates who supported fudge. Really are not happy about deville sack choice. It's partly because they want that change at. Usda more focus on nutrition also the environment. But there's another thing. Tom vilsek after he left. The obama administration took a job as ceo of the us dairy export council which is an industry group and his critic. Say this is kind of a sign of their problem with them. They say he's too cozy with the big companies that represent the status quo in agriculture. Why you cover so much of this I in very deep ways. I mean talk. About what policies may or may not change under a biden administration with vilsek at the homeless department vilsek represents continuity in a way but there are things that people do expect change There's been an extraordinary development in the last couple of years. During the trump administration the secretary that the department of agriculture passed out record breaking amounts of financial aid to farmers this year alone. Forty six billion dollars in direct government payments. I think that is not going to continue. There's another thing the. Usda may turn into a bit of an environmental agency play a big role. Perhaps in climate change it has some money. For this rural development programs could help pay for clean energy in rural areas their plans to pay farmers for practices on the farm that reduce greenhouse emissions could also promote reforestation. The us forest service sexy part of the us department of agriculture and those forests are in the way as the climate heats up npr's. Dan charles covers food and agriculture. Dan thanks so much thank

"The with kevin mason rolling through facebook did morning when it came upon. The horrible news had lost. A friend actually had lost two friends one of my former co workers and friends. Tko grady. i worked with an akron had passed away. It was unexpected. He didn't show up for a get together with friends on sunday when they went to check on them they found him unresponsive and he can. I worked together. He ran the rock station.

Jason Capra, C-53 Restorer, Discusses His Latest Restoration

"We're talking about fifty three's horse because you've got one that that you've been heavily involved in in restoring. Can You? Let us sit back put our feet up and just tell us the story of this particular airplane and Maybe even backtrack a little bit sort of how you how you came across it what was the path that led you to it, and then the airplanes history itself yeah. That'd be more than happy to so just I've been lucky enough to be involved with another organization and warbirds Incisa teenager, and that was the Berlin airlift historical foundation They have this fifty four spirit of freedom. which unfortunately was just written off due to a tornado passed down in North Carolina. But I was I was lucky to be involved with that and be around Douglas Prop liners in big airplanes warbirds since I was a teen about fourteen or fifteen. So I I've been on the airshow circuit and I had been flying with Tim on that airplane and working on it. So I really got a really good hands on experience on working on these things. And I just so happen to be on my way home from Ground School for my airline that I fly for about five years ago. Now, her now I'm sorry, six years ago. And I was driving back to Pittsburgh and just got tired of being on the interstate. So I started taking all these backroads just trying to get lost. and seeing what I could find stumble across and ended up coming through this little town in Ohio called beach. City Ohio. And came around the bend and there's a grass airstrip sitting there and Kinda like flying community. There's houses with hangers attached to the. And then down at the end of the airport where the road parallels the runway there was. About twenty open air hangars that were in deplorable shape with their rotting away underneath of them. And right on the other side of that hanger was this DC three just. Basically, you know it's painted been oxidized and was turned powder, and there was mold growing on it and just windows were laminated didn't fogged over and the fabric honor flight controls were torn and it was just about the saddest thing I think I've ever seen in my life. And knowing that that airplane deserved better and I always joked about me and I'd love to find one of those barns. Fine words. You know it's kind of a dream for some of us out there that maybe one day you'd be Lucky enough to stumble across something like that. And and and here's this DC three that I know nothing about that clearly hasn't flown in ages. And I pulled off to the side of the road and walked over and walked around it and just everything about it just broke my heart and you could tell, and we always talk about these old airplanes having souls but this thing. This thing was crying out for helping and I cure it and I don't know why but right then and there I just kind of looked at the airplane and I said don't worry old girl. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do something help you And When I left that day I was on a mission to track down the guy who. Owned it or whoever owned it, and I was going to try and see if there was something we could do to save. And that's pretty much how that started. Did you ever think that. You'd you'd actually own something like this I mean this is the spree a significant. Did you ever think you'd actually make it happen? no. I always thought I would own award and and have an organization of some such but My sites were being set on either a bt thirteen or maybe a cheese six. something a little bit more manageable and definitely a lot smaller. But it was just one of those things that I. You know has been working with Tim in the C fifty four for so long and I saw how essentially three or four dedicated people could make a four engined douglas work. And I thought well, if I could get two or three dedicated people, there's no reason we couldn't make a DC three work is half the size. And Tim always said that you know in his words he said anybody can operate a DC three if you have a little bit of knowledge and. He always said there's hope for you to on day. It was a joke. You know what? I he was right, and here we go. So we're going to give us shot so. That's awesome. So so what was the next step? How did you go about tracking down the owner? So I actually went on the FAA's website and just typed in the on number and. and. Sure. Enough. It came up with the gentleman's name is name was Ken Joseph. And So I saw that he lived in the Akron area somewhere. So then I just googled Ken Joseph Akron Ohio. And every Joseph that popped up I just blindly called and asked if they were the individual that on the DC three at the Beach City Airport. So it took me about three weeks to get hold of him and actually got a hold of his son I and he put me in touch with him. and. I just asked if I could come out and talk with them about the airplane and and take a look at it more in depth than I already did. And he agreed to that and he didn't know. Anything very much about the history of the airplane prior to it being the east to be the governor's airplane of the State of Ohio. And that was about the end of his knowledge is to what it was where it was. But obviously, I, I saw from the data plate inside when I went in that it was built an accepted on January nineteen forty two. Something like listening definitely has some combat history military history and nobody's seemingly knows what that is. I'm going to have to dive into that and find out. But So, after I talked with Ken for a while I told him I said, would you ever be interested in selling this? And he said, no, not at all I've had this airplane for since nineteen ninety three and he's like multiple people ask me all the time and I'm just not interested. and Said Okay and I said, well, let me tell you of the one of the other airplanes I fly and work on and. Were give me a chance I. I would do my best in in hyphen very confident that we would be able to give it a retirement that. This this other airplane I fly has and I think that's what she deserves and I think that's probably what you would like to see happen to it. I. Just need you to give me a chance. So we went back and forth for about a month or two and finally called me and said, all right. Here's the deal. I'll sell you the airplane for one hundred, thousand dollars. It comes with to spare engines. And you've got one year to come up with the the total balance of the airplane, you can put whatever you WANNA put down on it as collateral. But if you don't have the money by this time a year from now. I keep the airplane and your money. Wow that's a harder. The race was on to. The race was on to make it happen.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat: From Champions to Breakup to NBA Finals Opponents

"Brian Windhorst you have spent I think the last decade of your life trying to establish successfully establishing by the way that you are a lot more than the Lebron guy after knowing and covering him longer than any other human being in our business dating back to your high school days in Akron and then even through the time you famously up and moved to Miami to cover him there. So I just want to begin by apologising for pulling you back into the orbit of the same son we've been worshiping for now seventeen years well I wouldn't be here but for Lebron I, extraordinarily fortunate to meet him when He. Was Fourteen years old his move to Miami in open the door for me to come to ESPN. So I, Oh, Lebron immensely, and while all of us want to spread our wings as we get older certainly would never shy away from or or tire from looking at this this guy because he's been influential character in my life and thankfully and influential character in the history of the NBA. Yeah. That was incredibly well said but now it's time to get super messy because in this case in this series where there are so many different interesting storylines and angles, it does feel like past might be prologue. I want to go back ten years now. It is July ninth, two, thousand and ten and Lebron James is introduced to heat fans for the first time along with Dwayne Wade and Chris. Bosh introduced to the NBA really for the first time as this big three and Lebron is asked about his plan for winning championships in Miami. Three kings came down here to win championships. Not One championship to Lebron. Tell us about that not too on. Now. Now by. Not. Fix. So at that moment. How did the Miami Heat See Lebron era playing out? Pat Riley thought that that was. The Greatest Dynasty team that he had ever been able to be a part of. Better than magic and Kareem and James Worthy. Better. Than Shack and Dwayne Wade better than the hopeful teams that he had with the next with Patrick Ewing and Allan Houston John starks. He thought this was one of the greatest teams in the history of the NBA. He saw a horizon for a decade where they would be in the finals year after year after year and maybe they wouldn't win it every year and maybe they wouldn't win five six or seven Lebron said, but they would rack up. It was going to be his sunset team. He was going to ride this dynasty out and then go into the sunset and it was an incredible for years. It was one of the most prolific four year runs in the history of the NBA, but it wasn't that dynasty and Pat. Riley, has never one hundred percent ever gotten over.

FROM FARM TO CITY

"Story number eight in part one of the story section of the second edition of the big book published in nineteen fifty five. It's entitled from Farm to city and was written by Ethel M. One of the first female members of Akron group one that met on Wednesday evenings at King School in Akron Ohio though. She didn't get sober until May 1941 along with her husband Russ by the time the second edition was published in 1955. Ethel was widely known as the longest sober lady in the Akron Cleveland region. Around the time that Ethel got sober with the help of many male members of a there was noticeable resistance to women joining the men in meetings much of which was expressed by the wives of those men the social mores of that era were much harsher on women alcoholics than on men and there was concern about whether men would be able to stay sober with women alcoholics around wage even doctor Bob initially expressed consternation about allowing female alcoholics into a a but later capitulated, ironically turning women alcoholics, including Ethel M over to his wife and for indoctrination into the program this early grappling with the differences between the Sexes with regard to their experience with alcoholism pave the way for a program in which men work with men and women work with women and yet all work with the common purpose of staying sober and helping other alcoholics achieve sobriety. Ethel M's story is a fine example of this Noble purpose. and now part one story eight from Farm to City. She tells how a a works when the going is rough a Pioneer Woman member of a haze first group. I come from a very poor family in material things with a fine Christian mother, but with no religious background. I was the oldest in a family of seven and my father was an alcoholic home. I was deprived of many of the things that we feel are important in life such as education particularly because of my father's drinking mine was far from a happy childhood. I had none of those things that children should have to make them happy we moved in from the country at the age when girls want all sorts of nice things. I remember starting to city school coming from a country school and wanting so very very much to be like the other girls and trying flour on my face for powder because I wasn't able to have any real powder. I remember feeling that they were making fun of me. I feared that I wasn't dressed like the rest. I know that one of the outfits I had was a skirt and a very funny looking blouse that my mother had picked up at a rummage sale. I look bad. I can remember these things because they made me very unhappy and added to my feeling of inferiority and never being the same as other people at the age of Sixteen. I was invited to spend the summer with an aunt and I very delightedly accepted the invitation. It was a small town Liberty Indiana when I came to my and she knew that I had had an unhappy childhood and she said now Ethel, you're welcome to have boyfriends in our home but there are two boys in this town that I don't want you to date and one of them comes from a very fine family one of the best month, but he's in all sorts of scrapes because he drinks too much for months later. I married this guy. I'm sure his family felt that it was a marriage that well. I was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Definitely. I felt that his family were accepting me because it was good sense. I could do something for their R Us but they didn't do anything for me to build up my ego and rust didn't tell me he'd stopped drinking and he certainly didn't stop it went on and grew worse and worse. We had two daughters. I was sixteen When we married and he was seven years older. I remember one in Thousand when he took off and went down to Cincinnati and was gone a week on a drunk finally. It got so bad that I left him and went back home and took my two children with me. I didn't see him for a year or even hear from him. That was seven or eight years after we were married. I was still bitter because I felt that drink had completely ruined my childhood and my married life and I hated everything pertaining to it. I was about twenty-five then and I had never touched a drop. I got a job in the Woolen Mills in Ravenna. Very hard work. I looked much older than I was I was always large and I went back to work in this job. I kept my children with me at the end of the year the children got a card from their father, which I still have and cherish. He said tell Mommy I still love her. I had gone to an attorney to see about getting a divorce during that year. Then he came into town on the bomb. He had taken up light work and had a safety valve and a pair of Spurs and the clothes on his back and that was all I welcomed him with open arms. I didn't realize how I still felt about him. He told me that he would never drink again and I believed him as many times as he would tell me that I still believed him wage partially. So anyway, he got a job and went back to work. He stayed dry for thirteen years Doctor Bob often said that it was a record for what he felt was a tip-off. alcoholic We built up a splendid life at the end of these thirteen years. I never dreamed that he'd ever take another drink. I had never taken one our oldest daughter got married and they were offering at our house. Our other daughter was in her last year of high school and one night the new son-in-law and my husband went out to a prize-fight. I never was concerned anymore anywhere he went he hardly ever went to anything like that without me we were together all the time. But this night I got up and saw it was late. I heard my son-in-law coming upstairs and I asked him where Dad was he had a very peculiar look on his face and he said he's coming he was coming on his hands and knees up the stairs as I look back very broken up about it, but I don't believe now that it was with any deep feeling of resentment that I said to him the children are raised and if this is the way you want it, this is the way we'll have it. Where you go? I'll go and what you drink I'll drink that's when I started drinking. We were the most

HE HAD TO BE SHOWN

Big Book Podcast

04:38 min | 6 months ago

HE HAD TO BE SHOWN

"Who is convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. But not this man. I was the oldest of three children and my father was an alcoholic. One of the earliest memories that I have is of a bottle sitting on his desk with skull and crossbones and marked poison. At that time as I remember he had promised never to take another drink. Of course he did I can also remember that he was a salesman and a very good one. When he was uptown, we were living in the little town of Moscow. I went up to try to get some money from him to buy groceries. He wouldn't give me any money for the groceries, but he did take me across the street and buy me a bag of candy which I later took back traded for a loaf of bread. I was not more than six at that time. My father died in nineteen. Oh One when I was eight years old and I was in the second or third grade school. I immediately quit school and went to work and from that time until I was high school age, there was never a return to school. I always built up in my own mind. The great things that I was going to do, and in fact, I accomplished about fifty percent of them and then lost interest. That continued through my entire life. When I was sixteen years old my mother remarried and I was given the opportunity of going back to school. I went into the high school grades but having missed all the intermediate grades I didn't get along too well. So I developed the habit of going back to school just long enough for the football season and then quitting. There was always a tremendous drive and ambition to become a great guy because I think I recognized inwardly that I didn't have any special talents. At a comparatively early age I can remember being jealous of my brother. He did things much better than I did because he applied himself and learned how to do them and I never applied myself. Whether I could have done as well as he I don't know. I was married at the age of nineteen to a grand girl and had good business prospects. I had bought a piece of ground in Cuyahoga falls and cut it into lots and had a profit of approximately forty thousand dollars and that was a lot of money in those days. With that profit I built a number of houses, but then I neglected them. I wouldn't put sufficient time on them. Consequently, my labor bills ran up I. Lost Money and then just fool the way a large part of that profit. When I was eighteen at the end of high school, the High School team had a banquet at a well known roadhouse outside of Akron. We boys drove out in somebody's car and went to the bar on the way to the dining room and I in an effort to impress the other boys that I was city bread having lived in Scranton and Cleveland asked them. If they didn't want to drink, they looked at one another quarterly and finally one of them allowed he'd have a beer and they all followed him each of them saying he'd have a beer too. I ordered Martini extra dry. I didn't even know what a Martini looked like but I had heard a man down the bar order one. That was my first drink. I kept watching the man down the bar to see what he did with a contraption like that and he just smelled up his drink and set it down again. So I did the same. He took a couple of puffs of the cigarette and I took a couple of puffs on my cigarette. He tossed off half of his Martini I tossed off half a mind and nearly blew the top of my head off it. Irritated. My nostrils I choked I didn't like it. There was nothing about that drink that I liked but I watched him any tossed off the rest of his. So I tossed off the rest of mine he ate his olive and I ate mine I didn't even like the olive it was repulsive to me from every standpoint I drank nine Martinis in less than an hour. Twenty. Two years later Dr Bob told me that what I had done was like switch and setting up a demand for more alcohol in my system. I didn't know that then I had no more reason to drink those. Martinez than a Jack Rabbit. At that particular time the boys put me on a shudder and took me out to the shed and I lay in the car while they enjoyed their banquet. That was the first time. I. Ever Drank hard liquor. Blackout. Drinking. At once.

Being a Highly Sensitive Person with April Snow

"Hey guys. Welcome to not another anxiety show. I'm your host Kelly Walker and joining me today is guest April snow hey bro. Kelly thanks for having me. Yes. Thank you so much for taking time to hop on the show I'm really excited about our conversation, same? Yeah. I'm excited to be here. Before we get started, do you mind if I share a little bit more about you with our audience? Please do thank you. Awesome. April Snow Alam ft is a licensed psychotherapist in California who specializes in working with highly sensitive introverts, introverts, perfectionists, and high achievers. April strongly believes that being a highly sensitive person doesn't have to stop you from living a fully engaged life and is a mission to help HSP's create a life on their own terms. So they can manage the overwhelm and start to thrive. FIND OUT MORE AT WWW dot expansive heart dot com. So April my first question is Can you tell us? What it means and what it looks like to be highly sensitive person. Sure. Absolutely I know some folks listening may have not heard of this term before or. May Have heard of the word sensitive call too sensitive cell just expanded out just to give some more context. So. Being highly sensitive person is someone born with a unique temperament trait. It's also called sensory processing sensitivity in the research. But in plain terms, you're going to hear it called high sensitivity or HP for short. but the title, it really doesn't capture the complexity of being an ATS because there's a lot of misconceptions about it. Especially, if you're someone who is sensitive, it may have been used as a negative, right all your to sensitive too fragile. You know you're too slow whatever it is. There's a lot of labels we get hurt around sensitivity So this trait was originally put on the map by Dr Lene Aaron About Twenty five years ago, and since there's been a ton of research is come out, which is really comforting as an age sap didn't like hey, it's real not making this up. You know I am feeling everything so deeply. And noticing so much. So this this temperament traits found in about twenty percent of the population and in over one hundred other species. So that tells you that it's real it's not. As or being too. Too, sensitive whatever we hear it's real and it allows her nervous system and are willing to pick up subtleties and details that most people miss. So if you're an HSP probably a good at reading body language noticing when someone's upset or there have you know a little bit of a face change or they can haircut or you're picking up all those little details, which is actually pretty useful. It is right and social really is. One of the the advantages of being highly sensitive. So. All. Cal just break down a little bit of facts and also the core characteristics with people will get a sense of what it actually looks like. It'd be great. Thank you. Yeah. Asked I know there is a lot of. Misunderstanding about the trait and some even know it is a trait. So you might just be hearing this for the first time. So a lot of times it's mixed up with introversion, but actually thirty percent of each extroverts. So if you're out there and you're like I don't know if hse because actually I really like to socialize or. To do thrill seeking things, you could still be HSP that's just one that's me and I. You know I didn't realize how complex yea. Highly sensitive person could be because I really love the adventure piece I get more wiped out from it then my adventures bags. Yeah. Yeah. It's so true. You can be a hyacinth secret, an introvert anime chest you and then it gets really confusing like what's happening inside of me. Of. Fit. Exactly and they might be fighting each other different parts need different things at different times or you might experience it differently all the people out there than maybe a non sensation-seeking extroverted. HSP there's just so many liar that's it's so fascinating to kind of put all the pieces together. To, let's talk about the core sex 'cause the trade can be summed up in four trait for components, which is used as the Akron does so that step of processing over-stimulation, emotional responsiveness, empathy, and sensitive to subtleties or sensory information. so that's the hub of it.

But what was your gateway into coaching like what got you interested in it, and then what were some really big milestones in changing the way that you thought about your process? Yeah I, you know quick Reader's Digest version is. A pretty good athlete grown up back East right and had scholarship offers and was fortunate enough when I was in. Eighth Grade. To walk in the YMCA, fine little dungeon part where all the tough guys athletes working out in in. There was a level five Olympic lifting coach, and saw me with my little fitness books working out and said Hey kid Chimera. I WANNA teach you how to really train and while I was in eighth grade I started training with. Professional, athletes Olympic, athletes learning how to snatch clean squad sprint hurdles. Everything. So was a amazing experience for young kid be pulled into that kind of culture right away. Top properly. And then after. Know went into finance world business world is kinda miserable, but I was always getting fathers and guys played college football with call me when Scotty? Knew so much about this stuff. Helped me, I got a contract or my kids to a scholarship, teach him and I was doing it on the side and just fell in love with it and started growing in saw business opportunity, and then got called sportsmed guy in Toronto like the work I was doing and went up there and started running its clinic work with NHL guys in Canadian Olympians and stuff like that. It just grew from there kind of an organic way of. Loving it as a young young kid. Being, lucky to have someone mentor me and saw how it changed my life, and then fell into coaching. I feel like you're not the. For, some reason the finance and I didn't like it, and then again, the sports perform I. I've heard that story before I. Don't Mac Shakers on here had that too, and I feel like I've heard others. Maybe I do feel like that that like systems kinda thinking or do you think there's any thinking and finance that is helpful for sports is just make quincy dental you are. I think it's I think it's for competitors. We'll always WANNA look at measures of success. And that's kind of a natural thing. Until you realize I work, I work hard to get something and I realized I. Don't like it when I get here, that might not be success but I think finance is a challenging. Competitive. And and you know with detail and all these little nuances you can take and I think that attracts people to feel they wanna feel successful right, and then you realize you're sit in front of a computer all day long. Yeah. I. Can totally see that. Makes that makes sense I. You're speaking of success to ask the first thing. It's official question. I had and I just I guess, I, felt like starting with this rather than jumping right into the six lanes but. What is success in sport mean to you or? Yeah. So. What it used to meet. Right. So we all have these objectives and goals right, and we think that success when we meet that, we're going to be successful when feel successful yet, what happens when you need it? How long does they last for me? It lasts maybe five minutes and then I'm spending the next stuff in saying, okay. GotTa, start grinding now for the school and realizing that my daily experience wasn't great. So, success for me sport or any endeavor is your daily optimize experience that's sustainable over time. So if you're an athlete of Your Business Guy, whatever it is, if you're living your dream, you're loving your days, you're making a contribution feeling fulfilled. Ben. That's success to me. And so that's how I look at it when I get an athlete that. Wants to scholarship, but he's loving the training loving where he isn't high school having great teammates. Great relationships performing on the field. Every day is not future. You know obsessed all the time that successful to me. That makes sense with the process, right? Like. So often we just look at this. What's the goal? Win The Akron serve get the scholarship, but then, but then what I mean. Eventually it just. Eventually. There's think an emptiness. I mean, it's Nice Scholarships for sure. But at some point you get to the top and. Maybe realize you're on the wrong ladder something, but it's Where I've dealt with the most Olympic athletes after an Olympic year while they struggle. Mightily, they struggle with purpose with focus with what it all means. Up the disappointment of even if they got a medal, did feel as good as they thought. But the daily optimal experience their love in their life in the training or joining, they're enjoying the relationships are building that seems to be sustainable

"The world voice technology. Power these worlds starting to intersect power these worlds starting to collide. What cool things are GonNa? Come from this intersection of technology. Without further ADO. Let's get on with the show. All right, so we're joined here today by Bruce, Racine, Bruce! Toss a little bit about who you are in which do. Shirt if so I I'm actually originally a farm kid from western Missouri. And Through my career was spent in the technology industry, primarily with IBM enrolls like product management actually started my career there. Saint Louis where your base. And in Had A deep agriculture background grown up and about five years ago Wanna combine those two together. We started a venture. Known classically as can be very agricultural technology or tech. It's a digital data has startup. That does voice capture of recordkeeping, and so basically we empower food and agriculture workers to capture their insights and perform analytics while on the go, so that's the overall approach and focus of our our startup. That's awesome so I'm so excited for this conversation. I for the listeners out there a met Bruce a couple years ago at one of the different boys conferences that I attend and You know I think what's so interesting about voices, company here is that you know I think what tends to happen particularly with the general public. WHO's not? Really like obviously really thinking about this type of stuff. They think Alexa I think. Google Assistant Siri they think they're these consumer applications in in it's cut and dry right, I think that what's so cool as I've learned more and more about the voice space in in different companies that are approaching this is that it goes way beyond the consumer applications, and honestly I think that some of the most interesting things are happening in these non-consumer applications in these areas of focus, so whether it be in healthcare or education or industrial settings, or as we're gonNA talk about today. Agriculture, there are so many different ways in which we can create efficiencies Particularly for you know not only one of the oldest professions known to man but for. A lot of different people that are sort of working. With archaic methods. There's a lot of different reasons that we'll get into. That is and I. think that we're sort of at the cusp of why this is beginning to change but I just think it's cool that you know Bruce. He's got this background of agricultural small town farm kid from Missouri, and You know he's got that domain expertise, but he also has all the technical expertise from. Working within the computer industry like he has so I think this kind of marriage between the two is super. Interesting is sort of the backbone of of you know where this idea formulated so I wanted to really get into this whole thing So why don't we start with a little bit of an overview of how act voice actually works, and you know a little bit of an idea of like how this thing sorta came to be. Assure so a day the way to think about it, I mean. The. Fascinating space because it seems, everyone is interested in voice. Everyone's willing to try and trial. It but we.

"For for. For kid from Akron, Ohio. Inspiration. And. Needed some type of. Positive influence. Nj was that guy for me. Wash him from afar. Wanted to be like MJ to shoot fadeaway. He's like, I'm Jay. Stick my tongue on dunks. Like MJ wanted to wear my sneakers like am joy. I want to look up to me sound like I'm Jay. It's crazy to be honest. I don't. This is beyond crazy. You know, who it is? That's LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers talking about passing Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring charts. Now, LeBron James is at number four hours straight talk wireless, nationwide coverage on America's largest and most dependable four G T E networks now, I don't know guys. I know passing your idol is a big deal. But to me when you think about LeBron James, I don't know if it's going to be passing Michael Jordan on this going to everyone talks about to me, it's more. So what he didn't 2016 with Cleveland? Do you agree body? Oh, I agree. I mean, basically taking what we considered one of the greatest teams in Golden State and coming back from three one and winning a game seven in an oracle. I think it will be as a beer big of accomplishment of if he passes Kobe Bryant next or hospital, Karl Malone or even cream Abdul Jabbar. But I think that one championship. In you know, besides what he did in Miami. For those two that that one championship in two thousand sixteen probably be his defining legacy here. Cleveland was a was a graveyard for for sports. I mean, it was one of the one of those pro sports towns that so desperately needed a championship. And when LeBron came home and delivered it. I mean, that's what that's really one of the great stories that we've seen in all North American sports certainly in my lifetime. If you know to pass, Michael Jordan is an incredible accomplishment. But I don't know. I just look at his title in Cleveland, even if you were to win one in LA, here's title and Cleveland wall wall, always Trump anything else he does to Jordan and tonight. You know, what this brought light of how good of a player? Karl Malone was exactly the same thing. You know, it's like for the younger generation out there. I didn't see those those Utah teams Stockton Malone in and they look up at the listens. Who's this guy at number two who's this car loan guy, and he wasn't shooting threes. No, no, no. He was not on that score machine. You know, what's crazy? So one of the moments like, I'm sort of the type of person that doesn't really get phased. Because at USPS, you never know who's walking through the door. And we get to see a lot of greats last year. I was working the college basketball wards and Carl Malone has his own award at the end of the year for power forward. Right. And I was there and first of all he was wearing this awesome. Outfit shots. Karl Malone like black crack in. He's good. You know, a lot of them. Look good. You know? But Carl Malone still was like, oh, you he looked like he can still play. So I was in awe of all the people shack was there. And then all the top players in college game with it. And then I was walking in the bat. Green screen Ruben. We're like ships in the night passing. And I'm the type of person that's like just walked by. I have to introduce this award. Let me say focus Karl Malone. That's passing me. Like, pretty cool. He stops. Me grabs my arms. Like, hey, I'm a big fan of you. And your sister who can Stanford, and I'm a big fan of you and your work on ESPN and. I was I don't get shocked by 'cause I'm fortunate to have a lot. And so I just try to remember, my blessings, they hungry and humble and all that stuff. But I was like why would he know who I am? And then I realized oh, yeah, he's giving out the power forward award. So he's a guy that loves the game is great at the game. And he's the quintessential power forward. And I just love the fact knowing that he looks out for power forwards on the women's side and puts respect on our game. So that's my one little rate. Karlsberg? No. That was not a me like it was more of a him thing like setup Malone Jonathan Karl Malone again where the NBA insiders, I'm go McKay fan Girling about Karl Malone here with Bobby marks enjoying salts. But when you think about LeBron James and this list, it's all Lakers. Right. Isn't that crazy cream of dole Jabbar number one com? Alone to three Kobe Bryant in four LeBron James, Bobby. What does that say about this franchise? Well, don't insult Utah fans by by labeling Karl Malone Laker. Oh, great. The photo that's floating around social media. It's it's them in their jerseys. And you know, they all had tenure. I know it's amazing. And it's all different it's all different areas. There you've got the you've got will Kareem was in Milwaukee. So there's you know, they're in the eighties. And then you've got Kobe late nineties, and then, you know, two thousands there and then. Now, the Brown most of those points in in Cleveland in Miami here. But yeah, it is it is it is. It is crazy that three of the top four once or you know, were once one time, I guess wasn't maybe all four or once not one time Lakers here and with Michael as the as the lone person what what what would have to happen if anything for LeBron to retire Lakers that even what if he won three titles with that was going to say like everyone wants to standard of. Traded. Donovan. Spencer. You'd better be on twenty minutes ago. I need you to behave. Okay. Ron retired today. He'd probably retire calf. Yeah. I think maybe down the road. If there's if if the field between Pat Riley in the Bronner hashed out, right? If they got Dan Marino's jersey up there. Jerseys retiring because we think that LeBron James he's gonna be here for the next five six years as a Laker and then retire, and then do the MJ or not MJ the thing that they do now in signed a ten day with your true team the Cavs and finish as a cavalier. Yeah. I would think that that's probably the the route that goes when he eventually hangs them up whenever it's going to be when he waits for his son to come into into league. If that's if you know, if that's the case, you know, four or five years from now. But yeah, I mean, I I would I would be hard pressed the thing that there's another stop on the way for LeBron James after the Lakers. You know, besides doing the, you know, the one day contract, right? I mean, it just you know, he's, but I also thought that was in when he signed back with Cleveland in two thousand. That was what two thousand thirteen I thought he was going to finish his career there. And that's what that move was. It was a pump fake he not this whole pumping and going a so I'm good now. So I'm going to Beverly Hills. And I would have been interesting Jordan if he had never wanted championship there and then lane. Oh, I mean how he would have been thought of compared to where he is right now. Would he have been thought of worse than in two thousand ten? I yeah. I think so I do I agree. I agree. I think I think the you know the championship even when he wanted. I thought you know, the championship kind given that out down the road if he could ever you. That card if things went south with Cleveland. Absolutely. Well, the love for LeBron is sometimes real, and I feel like it's sometimes fake and the Lakers fans are trying to decide what side they are. Now coming up next might as well play that game real or fake. You're listening to MBA insiders on ESPN radio and the whole stay with us. Radio your computer your phone?

A very large fine against a company called P H H mortgage for not disclosing that P H H mortgage insurance was the same company as mortgage, and they took it to the supreme court, and it was thrown out because the supreme court found that the consumer financial protection bureau, which was set up by President Obama was an illegal entity that had no right to govern or assess fines, and and so it was thrown out. And and so they prevailed over over the consumer financial protection bureau this week. We we gonna news that aquaman as purchased P H H mortgage and Akron is a company that had several newsworthy articles over the years of not good.
