"I'm Tom Ackerman a lot going on in the sports world a lot of movement yesterday. Let's start with the one that got a lot of national attention, and that's college football. President Donald Trump joined Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sass and a number of coaches. In the push to save the college football season. From a pandemic forced shut down. There was a lot happening yesterday, so a growing number of athletes also spoke out in support of saving this season. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh got involved, he said, with Wolverines have shown players can be safe. After they returned to school, SAS wrote a letter to Big 10 school presidents and chancellors, saying that players like we will be safer with football than without because of the structure and discipline of football programs. All that said the Mountain West, a 12 team conference joined the Mid American Conference. And said they will not play any sports this fall. So the highest tier of NC a division one football now has two conferences that have bailed on the fall season and hoping to make a go of it in the spring, the mountain West with some big names Boise State Air Force San Diego State. Each of those were ranked At some point last year. The Big 10 was reportedly going that way. But a Big 10 spokesman said no votes on fall sports had been taken by its presidents and chancellors. As of Monday afternoon. What about the SEC? A big player in all of this there, Commissioner Greg sank he posted on Twitter. He doesn't know if college football can be played during the pandemic. But the S E C has made it clear it is not ready to shutter its fall season. The Cardinals, as you've heard by now have postponed two more games, a doubleheader on Thursday against the Detroit Tigers. That raises the number 2 15 Now that have been postponed. The Cardinals have only played five games here is Cardinals president of baseball operations. John knows a lot.

What are coaches and players willing to sacrifice for a college football season?
"We started the show with how much money can affect your decisions in the pandemic. So what if you're a college athlete who scholarship depends on your ability to play a sport? There wasn't really. Anything. That gave me assure you though camps increasingly we've seen college athletes speak up for themselves. Yesterday a group representing a thousand big ten football players wrote a letter blasting the NC double a. for not having a nationwide plan for keeping athletes safe through demanding testing from third party mandatory quarantines for someone even presumed positive and penalties for anyone who violates protocols or fails to report violations well Unfortunately, we're back together today to discuss what I would deem a significant increase in positive test, and there have been reports of players behaving on safely at review. Of the contact tracing the primary source, the spread appears to be an off campus party. But when you read between the lines of this letter, they're really suggesting even if there are rules in place, we don't trust the people in charge to follow them think about how much money college sports bring in even if there's no one in the stands, TV. Packages bring millions for a big university. If one positive test means you gotta quarantine the entire offense of line would you maybe think about just telling that student to stay in their dorm and keep quiet? There was a story coming out of Colorado yesterday that is on what some football players it Colorado State University are saying some athletic staff to the school president has now launched an investigation into accusations that coaches are telling positive players not to report. and. are threatening your playing time. If you preemptively quarantine, there were reports that they're contact tracing with being was being finagled. that. They were not social distancing Salem understating thaddeus says, nothing comes ahead of athlete safety but just for peace of mind the NC Double A. is now saying, no athlete will lose athletic scholarship this year even if they choose to sit out the season.

"So delegates and staff will be tested, retested and possibly retested. Once they get to a Charlotte and, Ah, that's going to be a change from what we were initially hearing there's a plan to social distancing. Oh, and mask wearing. That's going to be a requirement for those delegates that visit the RNC course. The business portion that is going to be in Charlotte will begin 10 days from today. So right around the corner. Last night, Charlotte City Council held a meeting and during this meeting Dr Jeff Run G senior medical advisor for the 2020 or NC address council, and and answered some questions, but talked about Ah, the mindset of AH of pulling this off. This is not A political plan. I have been totally unresponsive to, uh uh, Anything that, uh That sounds political. On DH. You know, it's easy to do that, because of the planning so that we have which are people from Charlotte, their physicians. There are paramedics they are health administrators. And, uh, they understand that if this thing is not carried on the safe matter, that there was a tip of the spear Ondas health systems will be the ones that will suffer as well as the before. Uh, County Health Department is going to be stuck with with tracing of contacts and so forth. So We are absorbing guidelines that put out by the CDC. The White House task force on this but the state of North Carolina, Uh, the county of Mecklenburg With the wisdom of some really smart people, senior physicians administrators in the health service. And those elements are About communication, communication and communication with the participating attendees to let them know that this is not the same kind of convention they have attended in prior years. This is about the business of nominating a candidate for president. And it's typically happens in other years, the week before the convention. Convention meets and it's What's on TV that we all know well, like a watch. But you know, that is the day that rally and that's not this. But this is the business of the convention. And our feedback from Dr Tolson at this day is is that the flexibility Of our being able to bring together Uh, 336 delegates and another, uh, 75 to 100 support people. I'm out of town. It depends upon their respect for the democratic process of doing this, and that the important part is the business of the convention. And it's not a party Dr Jeff Rung the addressing City Council virtually last night, he will be a guest on the Pat McCrory Show and just Ah, little while 9 35 This morning on W B T now, ah other questions last night, of course. Ah, Chief Johnny Jennings was on hand as well. Teo talk about security measures in place for this scale down convention. But there's been some question as to whether or not the president or the vice president will appear in Charlotte during this Several day period of convention business. We know the president's not going to make his nomination speech now more on that He's not gonna make it here or in North Carolina for that matter more on that in a second, But this is Chief Jennings last night as you heard earlier. We're respecting. 336 delegates. Plus they're guests on. There's no indication at this time of a presidential visit or vice presidential visit, however, that does change. We do have resource is in place and we will be able to manage that. Effectively as well. Vice president indicated Rollie that the president did intend to come to Charlotte. And we've just been apprised that there there is no such plan. What does that mean? That we have affirmative information to the effect that he is not coming partisan or the only thing we have not had any indication, get out whether he will be here. I don't know. Be honest with you. I don't think anything's informative until Tuesday after the events over But not really..
Fighting COVID-19 vaccine fears
"First. Up this week, we have sciences editor in chief Holden Thorp. He wrote an editorial on Corona virus vaccines this week high holden closer great to be with you. So your editorial starts with the positive. What's the good news? Well, the good news is that in just a short period of time since we got the sequence of the novel Corona Virus, the International Scientific Enterprise has done an extraordinary job at describing the virus. It's genetics, the structures of all of its component parts elucidating what happens. To our immune systems when we get infected with the virus at describing neutralizing antibodies that can be used therapeutics and as developing vaccines that can be used to and so I really hard for me to remember a time where in such a short time science has done this much on a particular problem on. So many fronts all across the world scientists in working together. But as you rightfully point out in your piece so much of this effort, this excellence has been overshadowed by social and political issues. Can you talk a little bit about the ones that you call out in your piece the I think that the fact that the people of the United States in particular but it is also true around the world can't come to a consensus about the fact that we should be using public health measures like masks and distancing to suppress the virus. While we wait for science to come up with these solutions I think has become such a powerful issue in the media that it's over shadowing the progress. That sciences making and so at a time that should be really a triumph for science and all we have achieved, and of course, there have been some twists and turns along the way. But at a point that really should be a time when science is being celebrated it's completely overshadowed by the partisan political, debating about who's responsible for the virus and what the best steps are too mitigated between now, and when we get the vaccine rolled out scientists public large, they're seeing vaccines as the solution and. Not Been Smooth sailing on the vaccine front but there is progress. What's the status right now of vaccine development just a general overview. There are a lot that are m phase three clinical trials. Face. One of the most high profile ones is the Madonna Mr Rene Vaccine, but there are other vaccines around the world that of already made it to phase three, and so the chance that one of these would read out in December or early January I think is quite high as probably sixty day trial and you can't get everybody enrolled all at once but we're getting to the point where we're gonNA start seeing some phase three date on these and if the phase one and two any indication than when folks are vaccinated, they're going to generate a robot. Immune response and eventually will be able to show that that provides protection against the illness and would take a really something unforeseen if that wasn't the case so far. So good is what a lot of people would say about where we are in the back and we're really further ahead I think a lot of people expect about this time. There are some concerns. Now, for example, the US had this project called option warp speed, which I guess gave the nod to a bunch of companies to go ahead gave some money but that wasn't exactly a transparent approach to picking. Vaccine, candidates yeah I think first of all, the name of Operation Warp speed has been pretty unfortunate. Warp speed is something from science fiction. It's not something that exists in this. Up It's only got fictional antecedents. On top of that, sending a signal that we're going this fast may some people to doubt whether the vaccine is going to be safe enough, and then within operation warp speed I feel for him on this because they are trying to partner with the companies that are going to push the vaccines the furthest the fastest. But there's been a lot of chatter about whether it's been transparent and whether it's been equitable, the way that they have selected the different vaccines and so that's Just inevitable I mean you have to work with industry on this the government doesn't have the ability to produce hundreds of millions of vaccine doses and The industry partnership was always going to be there but we know once you have that then naturally that causes some people wonder whether things will be done in a in a fair way Now, I see some parallels between the fight against masks, people wearing masks, her social distancing and vaccine hesitancy or fear or refusal of vaccines. And this is going back to before the current crisis in two thousand and nineteen the WHO declared vaccine hesitancy one of the biggest issues worldwide this is a problem that was around before the coronavirus pandemic, and now we're seeing mass hesitancy. Are you concerned that there are going to be vaccine has NC issues as a coronavirus vaccines come online. Yes, I'm very concerned about that and I think a lot of other leaders across the American federal government in particular have voiced concerns about this. We've been dealing with the ANTIBAC- Movement for quite a while. Now, it's based on impart on an unfortunate apor that was retracted suggesting that there were dangers causing autism from vaccines that turned out to be wrong. But one of the things that happens in these kinds of political struggles is that the side that's using this information kinda doesn't care whether it was a reprint peer reviewed article or was an article that was retracted. If it helps their agenda, they'll push on. That and so we've seen a lot of anti vaccine movement before this. That's a being stoked with the idea that somehow sciences conspiracy to deprive people love their freedom or to enrich science in some way none of that is founded but that's the kind of thing that you see circulating those very same forces have been undermining the public health experts on masking and social distancing and estimates of the severity of the virus, and now they're perfectly positioned to undermine the vaccine, and that is a scary thing because we need to get enough people vaccinated that there's enough immunity out there in the population to stop the epidemic.

"That's awesome and you know and it takes a lot I remember watching a interview with an artist by the name of Tyler sign and he he was he tied sign Weiji and DJ mustard I grew up in the same era I think their different age groups but they grew up in this area and tied assign had this song I forget which one it is. It's whatever one that made Weiji famous. Basically, he was actually ty. Val. Yes yes and so he's he allowed him. It was actually tied. Thousand Song. Supposedly. This. If I'm if I got the story right he stepped back and said now you can you can have your younger. You're probably more likely going to pop off more than I. Am well, they ended up making his voice thousands voice singing on it, and they're like, well, who's this guy or whatever for the people who didn't know him and all of a sudden he ended up getting a deal out of it as well. And they both kind of like blooms dope and then they're like, who put this together? Dj Mustard and all three of them blew up all at the same time That's great. That's amazing for for that to happen I don't know what they're all doing now but it was just one of those things that's hard though it's hard to give up your baby put it mad time your heart and energy into it, your soul and. He sees someone else's name slapped on it. It also takes like a little bit of growth. Body I was telling someone like Oh, I spend a lot of time creating music. He said that's that's probably coming from like even if you don't realize that like you being insecure. Even even slightly so he tried to create something in the day NC will comes of it and. I'll do it and then I. I did and I really liked this. Created relief US rather than like spending a bunch of time on I went back and tweak dinner and all of this. For, the most part I created in the day and I think even with that like being able to give something up it takes so much out of you I think you should grow. That happened in the the Mac Miller album like I. Don't think he credited a lot of people hanging out of people. I think gave him those things because they were good friends with him the one night his most recent one, the one before he passed swimming. I think John Mayer's on the. Other people and people are like who is that and after he passed away? Yeah that's me. So I think it's kind of like the same thing where you can have this, but it takes growth. Yellow baby says he charges everybody for everything. So you'll have that you'll have that issue. To. Everyone, here you go by is yours. Is Everybody's it's funny So, explain a little bit about that your creative process. You said try to develop something within a day and see what comes out of it. See what the product is without forcing it right now. Trying to force something maybe you do need to let it go and come back to it the next day or whenever you're gonNA have been. Because I heard singer rapper whenever he was a himself Russ He. Felt Dope Yeah Russ developed a song. It didn't fully finish. She said he for whatever reason is a really recent drop that he just And he actually let the fans finish it with him on like live I g because he someone asks what's your creative process? Let's do it together. so He's already have half the song or beginning of a song or I got the hook or something, and we'll keep going he developed the song whether it was great and he didn't really play the full song as yet had downloaded whatever. It was interesting because he allowed people in for the first time. What is actual creative process were? And now it's called Ross feature in the fans like literally that's what the track is how. Roses Genius Yeah I mean just that alone brought more fans. Towards, him because that's like an attractive thing to do it's different. It's genius for marketing. It's genius because. You're actually truly showing people what your processes and all creative say this all the time I have nothing to hide because my creativity is going to be completely different than what your creativity is my my style my splash is totally different. So you if I showed you how I did something, it's still gonNA sound different than if you were to do it. What do you? What do you think about the? What's your creative process of? Would you be able to do something like that have other people? Oh, what did he did this? Like that would be kind of distracting if you don't about it I can and I have an even like what you said about Roy working on the song and coming back to I do that everyday yeah. Like I'll start something won't touch it for months or weeks or whatever Yeah. I. I like the way I've been creating some of my most recent work. Is I'll start a I'll produce it whether I I get whatever sounds I have somebody else play, and then I start building like another musician then and I'll say, Hey, what do you think this needs and I'll get them to play that and then I'll play around with some other sounds but a lot of it is like their impetus whoa where they're like Oh what if you added this to it a lot of people I'm close without them by listen to it and say, how does this sound to you I had I had my friend tell me all this was fire keep this one, and then another one on the he said sounds like elevator music. To totally here. Right so like All right cool I'm like I liked the song lot said sounds like elevator music. So I said I'll keep working on I'll make it. That way. But even that was like him having his input where he said he said the keys sound like the cheesy like you're on the elevator. And then I even started when this something similar to to Russ because corona virus, I'd just played everything I have on released like on facebook or instagram live yeah and just saw how people reacted to it. Yeah. So I I saw that the ones they really liked they would come and say Oh nice cords or oh, there's this song as fire the ones that like I was a little bit about just like let Iraq. Another one came back on. There were like Oh, word or output like like little snippets on on Instagram if someone hits me Oh, this is cool. I'm are cool. Some people like sometimes people say anything and I didn't I didn't take it like too high or too much but it was just like a cooler experiment. Do you have. Do you have anything on Deck Ready to go like beats whatever it is just something hooks something in the back of your mind somebody we have somebody in mind for that. If they jumped on this as it'd be crazy, you didn't really put it together yet. Now for sure I I definitely have like a bunch of stuff. So. Process now has been before I..

"If it raises public awareness but like you were saying if there's no implementation. Of Policies that show that you genuinely care about marginalized communities so In access to healthcare education housing social security if those measures aren't taken then. Yes I'm I am afraid that this will be a hype. Caused by the. Unfortunate. and. Criminal Death of George Floyd? And that really shouldn't be the case. I. Hope it carries forward and it keeps going forward but I have also met too many people who you know go as far as posting a black square on their instagram and then feeling kind of fly. Done with with it and no one saying you know you have to wake up every day and wear A. T shirt but I do think I had a conversation with the with the playwright about this People are in various positions of power. So you know. Even when I was calling out the drama school, some people could be like, why are you taking this at at a moment of crisis? Why are you making this a personal issue about a particular institution? Now I'm not in America I I'm helping the black lives matter movement through their website and signing petitions all that. But the space is the eyeball. CCUPIED. I feel like making changes in those spaces is also contributing to the wider movement and this goes back to a personal theory that I have like to share. which is but circle of concern and circle of influence. So like if you look at the as a circle of concern that encompasses the entire world. Now, I as an individual cannot make systemic change in the entire world, but if I look at my circle of influence. So for example, the drama school I attended my family, my community, the people I have access to I can make change there and I think too often in these movements, people get overwhelmed by the circle of concern. So they see that it's like a global thing and then they feel attacked. And they shut down and I think for it to really just gain in carry momentum we have to sort of shifted towards the circle of influence on a lot of people do not on their own, but it's the people who don't and turn away from this white fragility as it's called. Those are the people that sort of need to realize that. It in my view that it's not about you know you denying yourself right to live and. And being obliterated from the Earth for being white it's about acknowledging certain things for error just society. There are always people who are not going to want that though. So that is something that you know. I think every idealist activist has to Just, take with a pinch of salt social. Let's talk about your company MC l.. You're only twenty six or twenty seven by the way and you've achieved so much I don't know how you do it but so you have this production company and you have a lake.

Bruce Rasa - AgVoice: Voice Tech for the Farm
"Fascinating space because it seems, everyone is interested in voice. Everyone's willing to try and trial. It but we. We really here's got sparked. So about five years ago many people might remember that. Google did a public competition. For. Smart Glasses and they primarily aimed at you. Know vast majority that at the consumer market. But when I saw the device first floor in about it as a possible successor, initially compliment, but possible successor to the smartphone itself. I was really intrigued. At could be A. Very useful very practical everyday hands on tool to help people collect a saying for example in any industrial use case. And I just knew that intuitively because of Mine Akron grown up on the farm, families still farms in total like my a father brother GonNA cousins farm about ten thousand acres in western Missouri. uncles Nance also have an portrait of a forty thousand apple trees. Really Groping really neat, fascinating, rich diverse environment for for agricultural. work in the short versions observe was her hands on intense job, so when hands free tool came along I was interested tried out, so the specific origin story was. Through my name in the ring. In a you know Google did a public competition said. What would you do if you had this device? And I said well, if I had glass I would help. Farmers Growers Connect with consumers and show how their food is grown in a safe and environmentally responsible way so effectively the type of communications platform. To allow the world of agriculture to connect with the world of consumers, which usually has a lot of. Differences are GonNa Misunderstandings and the simple version is I was I was fortunate I was selected. and went through the list of the eight thousand people selected, and only five even mentioned the word agriculture. Got, this, device that has intriguing possibility, it's tested and so I actually I got the device in Los, Angeles I fully can say Missouri, and I went and test it with farmers the next day, so the first place in the world, smart glasses retested in the in the food production sector, anyway at least to general purpose, you know mass device. On Google's device was in western cooler bar. That's so cool, yeah! I think that's super interesting and you mentioned something there. You know hands busy labor intensive like that's where I think that. This is where it really caught. My attention is this. Is this notion that you know you think about that type of job? If you're a grower, you're a farmer more times than not I would imagine that you are doing things that are really. Really preoccupying yourself, but I think that as I've learned a little bit about your product, it really allows for them to continue to do the job that they're doing, but also sort of take care of a lot of different like almost like clerical work right like this is what I did today. These were the amount of bushels of apples that I picked. The right s you know kind of going like one by one and you can do this all on the go and and I. Just think that's so interesting, because clearly as you know, I would imagine that would the type of feedback that you've gotten is like this is a really positive thing because it allows me to do my job just way more efficiently than I had been doing it can. Can you speak a little bit to that idea of like how this tool serves that type of professional? Assure so a couple of examples quicken in that you know toying with the device on my whole goal was to put that. SMART glasses in a lot of people's hands, which I I got to meet with about eight hundred people over the course of a year people were from. Slightly more than twenty different countries got very diverse input and Dave. Two things came out loud and clear was. Screaming need for hands free device. NC exactly what you said was people already with a hands on job, sometimes a full professional job, not just if you will caller, but all of them have an escalating need to capture information as they're doing their job and they don't WanNa stop work doesn't sound like a big deal. Many people saying office, but this this stops ten twenty or thirty percent of their day by today's recordkeeping, which is really not frankly they're usually. They're talented their passion. But the the second thing that came out in their search was the voice recognition absolutely sucked. So these people have specialized dedicated jobs there. People could veterinarians a plant scientists agronomist. Machinery inspectors repair support in a very specific jobs. Basically, they have a very specific vocabulary or dictionary or lexicon. If you will a things they need to do the reports and pretty simple. If you if anyone listening this is tried anything with a general purpose, surface optimize for consumers be Siri. It could be google. Times Alexa Cortana. Usually those things really. Are Not optimized all for specific industrial use case yen. Okay, the second thing is. I'd observe what has happened. Ed Buried very successfully in the healthcare sector. So the quick kind of analogy there is whistling somewhat. Similar idea, but again the healthcare sector just one company alone called nuance. Brilliant job kind of from a distance think last I understood they've about five hundred thousand. Users that are doctors, nurses, health practitioners doing this thing you're talking about to invoice capture against healthcare records, so the big benefit to them is a reduction in this this overwhelming painful. recordkeeping piece so critical mandatory yet 'cause it's a major. Of Major source of overwhelming and burn out for physicians and other people in health care. And the second thing is frankly they're taking their eyes off the patient.

There was something that for me like a religious duty. 'cause you know for example if I talk about the topic. Is Between fifteen thousand and twenty thousand words, a chapter of my book or Article but not everyone has the time to re this and necessarily understand will jog on and stuff so I i. consider you know known as? That's minorities. Jala is not valid until it shed. And you know so. How my question for the DOT words. How do I make it? These topics complex topics accessible for most people, and then I got inspired by. Keynote these like age a-plus videos. And I thought yeah, let's try to do some videos. In a similar way, a very short format with like culture, popular references and stuff, but also did some fictions individual. You mentioned actually was one of these experiments. Where basically it's a it's a stop in fiction where I imagine. What if all these influences that we see on Instagram Youtube? There were actually robots designed by Google facebook a for Muslims to abide by the government's guidelines, so that was the NC. How people would respond to such narrative so this. Would you actually I play like a scientist and? A friend of plays like a robot actuaries ten still out for three minutes, and we use like google voice from Google, translate to for the speech and. It was. I felt like when video came out. It definitely started conversations I'm sure it ruffled a few feathers, but also got people thinking and people talking which I'm sure was your kind of Ame behind that in some sense, and then also and I'll probably try and put a link to all the different video that we discussed in this in the in the description, but does also A. Series. That we did on the most imbibed. Within that we, so we sat down. We kind of Map Tau different conversation topics. We wanted to discuss so things like politics white privilege I was actually another one and look at my note masculinity. An. What was that journey like? Because again I the the kind of brief I. Guess We gave to you is that we want? To have pieces on this one conversations to be had around this, but we don't want him to be kind of light. We WanNa go quite deep, and obviously with your kind of academic background as well. We want to really be able to get hawk. Get to the heart of these conversations. And and I think we kind of did that like that. I remember the the white privilege episode was yourself and Two or three other white Muslims that you had that interview. I'd that will combat I believe as well I they were kind of unpacking and exploring in discussing direction, relative privilege, and whatever else and. It's interesting because there was it was very feedback that one person was asking for example why there was only white people on the documentary on the on the mini documentary that we produced. And I guess what was that whole Jenny like like off of the different mini documentary that we wanNA marriage as well. What was your favorite to record in research and and I think you know although these topics are very important for me. Because all of these topics were more or less part of my journey, not only it's not only topics I research in the university this topics that are impacting on my personal life, the life of my friends, and so on and so on, and you know especially when it comes to things like a me, metoo movements who black lives matter. The problem I felt was that lots of men and lots of white Muslims you know when that people expressed that you have these like global movements, so people feel attacked and they take it personally. and. The thing is a some men and also white Muslim understand what comes from?
Reverse-Engineering the Impact of the British Establishment on Muslims with William Barylo)
"William Thank. You thank you for for joining me on this podcast so I guess some people may be familiar with your face that watching this because we've done what you produced a series of of committing documentaries for us. Around some random topics. I'm trying to think back to how it all came together. So I think you got in touch with US maybe a couple of years ago. And and you had at the time I think we shed one of your videos which around? was like this. Robot version of the of the Muslim influence. Oh, yeah, that was Yeah, what working? I haven't seen that because I. Think it's hard to actually. They got that video struggle to find him for it last. What was that? So basically, it was an experiment in the sense that. You know if I can put things this way Assessor Gist, which is my job. My job is to understand. Why do people do certain things and? It's basically like being a psychologist before crowds for movements trends. But at the same time when I started my mic, my studies I as a Muslim academic.

Zadie Smith: On Beauty
"I'm very pleased to have US my guests eighty. Smith WHO's third novel on Beauty, has been published in paperback by Penguin. She's the author as well of white teeth and the autograph man now. I'm fascinated by this book actually and you've said that you used it as the occasion to teach yourself to write an English novel. What does that mean? You know actually I think. I used it as the occasion to to writing a certain kind of English, novel like There's something about my childhood in my education. That I when I started writing, I really wanted to prove I could do something. Pretty, traditional I suppose. You think of contemporary American White, my his their instincts rule the other way they would want to do something unusual outside of their tradition, but I I wanted to prove I suppose I could walk before I could run and This book to me was like paying tribute to the Gods at least a tribute to the writers that have sat on my head for. Fifteen years and I really wanted to escape from under their influence, but to write the kind of book that when I was a child I i. Read An and as I dreamt to producing. It takes. To my mind a very radical. Position. Which is? That none of its characters. Can Express themselves honestly and that in the course of the book, some of them will perhaps learn or better still learn not to attempt. To say who they are. Security exactly that that's the thing it's. It's not that they can express themselves well, but it's the thing they've been told is self. Expression is a mistake so. To me particularly someone like Roy. Kind of young black kid in the book he feels himself to be in some way inauthentic or not as black as he should be. You, know those kind of arguments that sometimes they're serious to the black community, and you hear them discussing them, and all about the moment I was a child I was constantly being told that various habits of mind I suppose including reading made me less black than I should be but The idea that you can be less authentic than you are. Is Nonsense this? There's no such thing and and to struggle under the idea. To concern yourself constantly about your identity seems to me a kind of. Prison and it's one that the white people. Don't have anything like the same degree. That they have a kind of existential freedom that they didn't even notice, because, of course, it's every human being. Should have and deserves to have an. It's natural, but if you don't have it if you constantly wondering instead not what it is to be, but what it is to be black. Then you'll completely cornered so I I. Suppose all my characters to some extent are Are Looking for identities and constantly when I'm into I'm being told you all about the search right NC and I always think my about that search being an entirely pointless while stopping the search for identity I. It seems to be here and the consequent hypocrisies and lying that go into the forging of a make believe identity that will function in the world, and that's why it seemed to me. that the book. Ends in kind of silence as beauty. Which seems to? Be passed articulation. is shown on a screen. It's a Rembrandt and a husband by now one wishes silenced by a sense of his own. Lying inadequacies, but instead late, and having left his under his lecture notes behind, but at least he is looking at the paint that represents Rembrandt's wife who's in the ocean, bathing, and who? Is in the depths as his own wife Kiki has been throughout this novel. She seems to be. You know a character who has been. Even. If not willingly submerged and dealing with unimaginable difficulties and resisting definition. It's no on nature in our culture to cut cover things with language, and I don't know this an opposite. Sydney can make which is the romance romanticize ation of things which are without language or over poor era. Silence and I don't mean to do that, but it's I'm a bit of an old fashioned existentialism sentiment. I'm a bit of a plate and it does seem to me that there are ideas beauties one of them. The good is another which are in some way. qualities that can't be articulated I can show you a series of beautiful things, but I can't describe Q. in any rational way the idea of beauty, the thing extracted for more. Content. And then there was an argument that there's no such thing as beauty outside of beautiful people, beautiful trees, and yet I continued to have an idea of it, and so do you continue to have an idea a much more radically of good, the good not attached just too good action so good people or good writing or whatever so Those things a real to me A. Hard to? Articulate, but when I'm the fiction I love has people in it who were dealing with those ideas, and and I want my cactus to have the similar freedoms
How to Troubleshoot Your Echo Device
"I want to address the issue that some people have when they are initially setting up their echo device now if you are having any problems setting up your echo device, for whatever reason I've got a couple of things that you can try, that will hopefully help to solve the problems and I would go through them in this order to see if this is the issue. Number one check that your device is connected to Wifi. Okay and You can do that simply by asking a simple question to the even just like Lexi. What time is it? If he can give you an answer? It's connected to Wifi. Then you can check the latest version of the LEXI APP, and what you can do is you can go to your APP store whichever? Mobile Operating, system you have NC. If there is an updated version then what you can try is try restarting. Echo device, and a good way to do that is to unplug it and leave it unplugged for a little while, and then you can plug it back in and when I say a little while it's like ten seconds or so, and that'll help to restart it, and if you still are having trouble, then you might want to try resetting your device and the way you would do that is you would go into the settings for the particular device that you want to change in your Lexi APP and you'll see at the bottom. There is a factory. Option and that is what you would click

Dan Guido of Trail of Bits - The Evolution of Smart Contract Security
"So I've been doing security stuff for the better part of my life started probably when I was about thirteen fourteen, breaking into my school computers, like when does as when does. Luckily escaped being severely punished for that but I ended up going to college for concentration program and cybersecurity. It was called politicking university when I went there, but now the Nyu School of Engineering and they have one of these NSA center of excellence programs that teach kids a formalized education in Cybersecurity I think the people that are a little bit younger than me have a lot more formalized education and people that are a little bit older than me, don't they learned? Learned from their peers, learned and kind of like a master apprentice kind of set up, so I'm right on the cusp of that, so I have a formal background in computer, science and computer security, and this is the only field that I've ever been interested in working in, so I've worked at the Fed reserve doing incident response, helping prevent people hacking into the currency reserve the United States. I've been a consultant at Isaac Partners now NC group I saw that Isaac. Isaac partners before they were acquired help start their office in the on the East Coast worked with dozens of technology companies across the globe, but I was pretty frustrated that it seemed like an unending treadmill that you kind of go back to clients year after year, and there's always the same bugs, and they don't really internalize the information that you give them. I thought that there was some improvement that we could make, and I wanted to make fundamental improvements to the. The whole field so I found a trail with two friends of mine back in twenty twelve to fundamentally advance the science of computer, science and computer security I think by and large succeeded at doing that very small ways. The company started as a Darpa contractor. We worked on for your long research programs in Automated Program Analysis and Advanced Cryptography, and then from there we've branched out to help provide those advances to commercial firms and now to blockchain firms, so that's. I guess the medium length overview of where I came from and what we're doing now. Tell us about how you got interested in blockchain as a cryptographic field. Because basically found a trade of bits and two thousand twelve, and obviously, then it was pretty new, so what exactly spoke to you about it? A couple of things I think it was really driven by employee interest there about two or three people in the company that were just really enamored with blockchain technology, because it was a Greenfield, not necessarily because it was anything that you could do with blockchain, but because the field was in its infancy, it was a chance to start over it was there were no security tools. There was no security knowledge. People were building their own programming languages building their own compilers. The execution environment looked a little bit different, so there was this huge gap of knowledge that we could rush into fill and create things that were. From the first step back about three to four years ago, we had a couple people dabbling in that area of technology, and what we contributed was a symbolic verifier. That was our very first thing. We didn't raise our hands and say hey. We'll audit your code for you. We're engineers, so we set up a little unit of people that wrote Symbolic Capable A. A theory in virtual machine, a tool that we have called manticore, and then once we were able to do that. We realized that Hey, this is actually kind of valuable and people would love to work with us to improve their own security, so because we'd already mastered the field through that activity that research activity. That's how we started offering services for
Pandemic projections suggest requiring masks could save 33,000 lives in U.S.
"There's a new projection from IHS. Emmy University of Washington which does a lot of the projections. They say that if people wear masks. Ninety five percent of the public, then thirty thousand lives in the United States could be saved just by October first. Does that suggest to you that every governor where there are? Outbreaks should be mandating masks in public. I do now that we have this guidance about how effective moss can be in the right conditions I think we need to be much clearer and telling people exactly what they need to do to protect themselves and their communities and this projection. Jake comes off the back of another projection. The estimate that seventy to ninety nine percent of Americans who died from covid nineteen that the Dow's were unethical. Unethical an unnecessary and could have been prevented if America had acted more aggressively early on and follow the steps of countries such as Germany and Singapore, so we missed the boat already. We've been late to the game. We have been getting poor communications Americans, and misguiding them I think now's the time to step that up and try to mitigate tens of thousands of Americans dying from covid nineteen. Only a little time but I want you to take a look at this video of a city councilman in Scottsdale Arizona Against Masks take a listen. I can't. I can't play. Obviously an incredibly insensitive reference to the death of George, Floyd, what we've also seen a judge in taxes assaulted after he issued a face covering order. What's your reaction? This is so such an awful exploitative co-opting of the icon brief statement, which is literally black Americans fighting for their right to live and not be killed by racist, and just speaks to what we've been talking about for the past few minutes that wearing a moth is a simple public health intervention. It protects other people. It need not be a political

"Wanted to respond to your comment about everyone getting pass fail grades during distance learning there's been a great deal of discussion on this one issue is that the NC double a does not accept pass fail for core courses so it would affect student athletes who want to participate in D. one and division two sports in college also some college programs required a certain grade in core courses in order to be accepted into a particular program I E. you have to earn at least a C. in high school chemistry in order to get accepted into some vet tech programs just wanna let you know that is why some schools are not doing pass fail thanks for listening Preciado the thoughtful comment merry and I guess I would think during this time that even colleges in the NC double lay should then also alter their their admissions should say Hey look I mean this is this is unprecedented we we've not gone through this we we also know that everybody is has had to adjust to everything and it is not fair it is not fair to do everybody in a school district and and we've seen we say look I mean ACT and SAT I got a lot of problems with those standardized testing I've got I've got some issues with those I don't know that that's always fair and and in the same thing now I mean if you have if you have the ability to be if you're free what it not free wifi if you have wifi access to wifi if you have wifi you're already ahead of the game and and you know for many of us listening it's a golf course we have wife of course we have internet we can do that there's a lot of people that don't or they struggle to to maybe have that ability at home so distance learning they're already a step behind now some people you know their only meal is at school so now they're at home and and you know if you're hungry and trying to learn to be efficient you're already a step behind so I would hope that I would hope that maybe if if this were the case that colleges would would you say he hit him this wipe it away look at the rest of you know look at the rest of the body of work and that's what you'll be judged on I guess I would I would take that over over an a for everybody just because I just don't know that that's that that's a good lesson to set because to me in a is earned thank you have to be today and and granted again like if you're doing pass fail those those kids who are earning the ETS that sucks sorry you get a pass but that but but still you did your part you know that you tried your best I think that is the lesson to be learned here where where if you get just start handing out ace then it's like I and I you know I I don't think you'd learning anything there let's see if five getting back to we got a bunch of comments here as we try to wait for Jackie not sure she's going to make it today Cory I'm with you on the gamblers so that's the other story we were talking about with with gamblers they might be able to file for unemployment in Nevada and I got nothing against gamblers nothing gets under I myself am not a gambler I lost twenty dollars at shooting star casino women no men when I was eighteen and decided no I'm good yep I'm good on that I just want to do it some I think that's okay though I don't have any bias against me that wants to do it that's great if you find it entertaining or are you able to do it where it's not an addiction and that's awesome great care but I don't think that you should be able to file for unemployment because isn't that the nature of gambling it's a risk like you are basing your whole career on risk and therefore okay thanks this this was this was not something you expected and and now you're got to figure out where else to get money from I I don't think that this should be because it's not the same you know who's having trouble he does having trouble right now filing for unemployment hairstylists we talked to him yesterday Kohli from their district and.

A lot of people a lot of high school baseball player's head coach. A baseball team in like just athletics at Lewisburg or just topnotch. If any of my guys are looking to junior college like that's the that's the college push him too because baseball teams great the football teams great like the campus is great. Like everything about that. School just seems like it's very blue collar very high work ethic in it like it's set up to get you to the next level. I think that that's a very good example. What happened with yourself Yeah a lot different man you know at the different lights so you get from Lewisburg. You had a great career. Lewisburg that kind of set you up for where you're at today. Take us through that that year when you're transferring from junior college Lewis Lewisburg junior college. Nc State you know how to the conversations go about about NC state interested in you. Do they call it? Was it more A. Hey we've come and seen you play all times. We want you here. Was it more of a coach? Connect like I think the jump from junior college to NCWA. Sports is always so interesting because there are so many different ways gets connected in how the athletes get connected with the programs. Well that year would. That's a little bit different because you Zuko I was. I was definitely smaller. Schools smaller atmosphere. You know get to. Nc State is so many people right. I'm seeing people every day. You know a lot different stuff that transition was. It was hard at first. But I got one got you through. And then got in my general mood and loading. I've got you through it and I enjoyed talking to you. I can kind of tell but you just mentioned your mood. Would it explain your personality and your mood to people who aren't familiar with you as a player or a person Like what kind of guy are you outside a Footba? I'll lay back I volume lay back Zealand. You know Mac guy I've regular person and I just love you know I love getting meet people in. I'm not that outgoing but I'll always respect everyone you know and I I try to be goodbye. Goodbye yeah and that's that's obvious to me just from the the interactions that we had where we got connected from here and then just even just like the the I mean again like when I reach out to people sometimes feels like I'm bothering him but never felt that way.

Bella needs to wait. Okay Coco called great man. Yeah and again. We talked a little bit about earlier. But you had that you had a really strong two thousand eighteen season four sacks eight tackles for loss. You had an interception. You know you kind of. I think you know maybe you can even admit this but you really surprised a lot of people a lot of NFL draft evaluators in that two thousand eighteen year when they go back and watch the taper when they saw you on tape watching other players last year but you had a bigger jump in two thousand nine hundred ninety seven sacks twelve tackles for loss. You're really just a dominant player. At the line of scrimmage you build a reset the line of scrimmage in running game affect the pocket as a pass rusher what were the most what. What did you work on the most going from two thousand eighteen to two thousand eighteen to to improve like every facet of the game? Really slow down the game. Slow down to me. I kinda just got more better. Technique wide Definitely just going to order in the game and then the getting more serve the things. I was doing so playbook wise. They're more comfortable more comfortable playing around with the guys. I play with just building chemistry and one thing that I notice popped up on tape is you guys. Didn't do it a ton but you still used it a lot for a college program. Is You guys? Use that twist game a little bit at NC state and I think that that's something the NFL seeing more and more nowadays. Is that something that you kind of prided yourself on on? Maybe when you weren't the twist player there you were the guy kind of taken up the blocks for the other guys. That's something that you kind of like. That's one thing that I noticed is when you ran those that twists game that you were. You weren't always add. It was benefiting from the sacks or the pressures but you guy gave that effort and the motor and the tenacity to blow up the line to to allow free rush to come through our. You know about the one of my guys. I'm happy for him. I make it so you know it was never selfish. I felt like if I did my best. My ability opened up my teammate. And make it in. You know we all make plays and we went for sure for sure. Great Man Love Everything about the NC state story lover about the Lewisburg story just wanted to talk a little bit now. Kinda you know.

"Carolina. Which is the city of oaks which is wide Oak Joe? I think that's why I got an extra cheer is my guests. Are you aware that you're the city of oats? Okay Good Missoula city of they call it the Garden City. And I'm like that's that's just New Jersey but is it New Jersey. They call it the garden. I know I've been there on all of the turnpike signs that it's the garden state and then you look and you're like that looks like a refinery but okay garden than I'm used to but we're not here to criticize New Jersey. Yeah alienate any people here. Who ARE FROM NEW JERSEY. Half Your Guys. You've got everywhere. Wow all right. What's answer some questions from our listeners? Or in this case our viewers and listeners. Because all these questions came from you and the way that we're going to identify you as your ambulance song. Some people may be new to the PODCAST and they don't know what that's a reference to. I had a million dollar idea or maybe someone else added an ice stolen. It's hard for me to remember. Sometimes and the million dollar idea was that instead of having that annoying like really piercing siren when you're in an ambulance which is a terrible thing to hear when you're sick or or in crisis you should have an ambulance song that you prefrontal and then if you ever find yourself in an ambulance they play your song. The whole way. There they loud is really loud and so people know to get out of the way but also you get to listen to a song. That's better than than the actual ambulance siren. There are some problems with this million dollar idea. We don't need to get into all of them. Want to people have pointed out to me but it's a fun thing to dream about it is. This would be part of my if I ever wrote a dystopia novel. Believe you me. Everybody would have an ambulance and it would cost so much like everything in the healthcare system. John Let's answer this question for Abby and Ryan whose ambulance song is shake it off by Taylor Swift. GotTa have some good vibes going. In that situation they write. Hello this is abby and Ryan. Art Question is have either of you ever come across an odd topic or strange fact while doing research for one of your books and if yes what did you discover and was it ever added to the book I so I had seen in my book that takes place several scenes that take place inside of an airplane where there's no one in it and the and things have to happen in the airplane so I called a man and his twitter was like airplane Guy. I basically hank finds his experts. See I tweeted. I was like I need someone who's like an airplane guy and then some of the airplane. Guy Responded. Hey Hey yeah no totally. An airplane guy. Like airplane thing happens. He's on the Cable News. Call him up and he. He's like a professional airplane guy and so I got on the phone with them. He was super gregarious and like open to helping me out. However I wanted and I was like I need to know how you might get into a plane not through the door and he was like let me tell you a story and I was like Yay Nita Story. So he wants wants an airplane. The door got stuck and I don't think there was anybody on the plane at the time. Yeah and so. You need to come out needed to get into the airplane. But the door won't open and so he told me how you get into an. Which is you crawl in through the nose landing gear and you crawl up there. And then there's like a thing where you unscrew all the bolts and then you can get into the airplane. If you're ever walking around like a seven thirty seven you can see the bolts in the floor in the front galley that he can crawl down into the landing gear from. I can't remember the words landing here right now. I also frequently do this where I learned something and then put it into a book in fact my novel. An abundance of Catherine's is essentially just a series of things that I learned stitch together into into novel form but But but recently. With my guys. The antecedent reviewed. Sometimes I'll discover a fact that I like so much that I'll be like I think I've got twelve hundred words so that I can justify telling people that the most recent example of which is that. I reviewed Pineapple on pizza for the interviewed because I discovered that in the nineteen sixties. Pineapple on pizza was invented in Canada by Greek immigrant. Who was working at a Chinese restaurant and who is inspired by Chinese cuisine to put a South American food on a traditionally Italian dish which went on to become most popular not in Hawaii but in Australia where astonishingly nationwide. The pineapple is the number one topping on pizza pineapple. I'm not convinced by your applause. It seemed it seemed. It seemed not to be one hundred percent of the people. Yeah it's a very divisive topic. I was like man given that fact. I've got to find twelve hundred other words to say about up on because I wanted. Tell that to people. It's good man. I want pizza now. Canadian Bacon what is Canadian is a Canadian. Of course it's not. Of course he knows that yes. Bacon has no nationality. Very true belongs to the pig pig bacon. Thank you take that away from them actually. Just leave it on would probably be their preference. All right. I told you is GONNA be a lot of emotional whiplash all right. Hey what's our next question? They come from David who's ambulance. Song is I don't know what that is You know it's like a chant Gregorian chant. Okay I mean. It's it's about her dance song. It's not a bob as an education an education major in his final semester of university. I'm prepared to teach English in high school and I'm slightly afraid of not being the teacher that will inspire my students. What teachers inspired you? The most in your education over the years. And what did they do to help you see their subject as tangible worth engaging with outside of just the requirements not a giant killer nor a sling slingers simply David but David was just simply David until they were like. Hey there's a goliath you need to fight so you never know and you are going into the education system so you will have your share. I first thing I want to say about. This is like you don't have to be that thing for every student. That is not how it works. It's not like we all come out of the education system and we all picked like everybody who had Mrs Grant Thinks Mrs Grant was the one. I think that we all find our teachers back. No matter how inspirational my Algebra teacher was that just wasn't going to be the person for you know for. I actually have a lot of friends. Who would site are Algebra teacher as like the most inspiring most one teacher? He was a great teacher. It's just you happen to be teaching Algebra two to which I am not inclined for me the people who made the biggest difference so when I was in school I often felt like I was being asked to jump over a series of arbitrary hurdles for no reason like they do in hurdle races. You know like whenever I watch hurdle race. I always think to myself if they just removed the hurdles. This would go so much faster. And that's how I felt in school. I was like now. They're gonNA make me jump over the Algebra to her and now I have to jump over the American History Hurdle. Why because the hurdles have been placed here by forces so much larger than me that I cannot begin to imagine them and it also felt like quite arbitrary and it felt like the main thing I was trying to do is to get a piece of paper that said that I had learned enough to be a grown up and the teachers who mattered to me where the teachers who were so passionate about what they were doing. They were so passionate about their work about their subject. Matter that somehow that passion became infectious and I began to see it not as a series of hurdles but instead as an opportunity an opportunity to understand my place in the universe and understand the universe an opportunity to understand how in different periods of history people have communicated themselves the ideas that matter to them the questions that mattered to them and and how to have conversations through space and time with the magic of reading and things like that. That was the stuff that really got me so I think for me. It comes down to passion and finding a way to hold onto that passion. Even when you're around students who if they're anything like me are super difficult and can be kind of annoying. Yeah and I think that like being open to that kind of passion in front of a bunch of maybe somewhat intentionally detached. In order to protect themselves students can be difficult because like they. They are in a world to some extent where they have to protect their identities. Because like it's not easy and high school or Middle School to be a person and so I think a lot of the sort of aloofness that comes with high school was a protection. Oh yeah like breaking through that. It feels definitely feels like if you show the world. You're you're vulnerable bell. It will devour you because I felt that way throughout middle school and then through most of high school by the way if you're in middle school or high school right now and it's and it's great that's I'm so happy for you and if it's not great it's it's okay and I am. Sorry that sucks but I promise it will get better. High school was temporary. You will not always feel the way that you feel in high school. I feel like the biggest achievement in my life and a lot of ways was making it to adulthood. I'm extremely extremely proud of that. In all I ever want to talk about when I see old friends is. Oh my God. Can you believe that we're here? This next question comes from Meredith. Who would like to hear highway to hell by? Acdc while they're on the way to the hospital meredith is working Darinka. John Says Meredith. I'm working at NASA THIS SEMESTER. As an intern awesome. So I'm like zero point zero zero one percent shore that they might be hiding aliens somewhere at the research base. I will be at. I want to be on the lookout. In case we are living in that. Very small percentage chance the universe. Can you help me come up with a game plan? How do I find the potential secret aliens? Where might they be? What if my one of my co workers is one of them in fear of inevitable. Heap Death Meredith. I mean first of all that shouldn't even be in your top thousand worries now. It should.

"The NC double a board of governors I've made the decision to conduct our upcoming championship events including the division one men's and women's basketball tournaments with only essential staff and limited family attendance the same goes on quote while I understand how disappointing this is for all fans of all sports my decision is based on the current understanding of how Kobe nineteen is progressing in the United States and quote so when I came out it was a gut punch it was inevitable but it was still a big bomb out because the NC double a tournament is the best arguably the best event no sports and fans are part of what make it so good the fans are enormous part of that but it was the right call the right time he really was now a day later it feels like it's just not enough one day later two NBA players have now tested positive in the NBA season has been suspended Major League Soccer announced that they are suspending their season USA soccer has called off its upcoming games the ATP tour announced that they're suspending their season for six weeks at this point the question needs to be asked and it is and this again is floated tapping as we speak but the question is we ask a Major League Baseball the National Hockey League the NC double a tournament the PGA tour NASCAR everyone everyone at this point needs to be asked why are you holding games why are you holding events for for what this really is the ultimate for who for one moment where is the NHL on this where is the PGA tour where is Major League Baseball I know they're discussing it I know they're thinking I'm curious what that discussion is the NHL had announced this morning that they were advising teams not to have morning skates today that's a start I suppose I'm concerned is not enough and again I say this as somebody who covers sports for a living believe me I'm not looking for sports to be stopped right now or ever be leave me and maybe some of you have thought about this but if you cancel everything or if you shut down everything or if you shut down everything as it relates to sports and I'm charged with hosting a sports talk show three hours a day believe me I don't want everything shut down the hell my gonna talk about three hours every single day however it's bigger than me it's bigger than the show it's bigger than the games if the NBA is saying that it is too great of a risk to continue playing their games and if colleges are moving to online classes in telling students not to come back from spring break then why are college athletes playing games in empty arenas what is the rationale for that if the NC double a and all these other leagues really are concerned about the athletes as they claim to be they're gonna take corrective action right now I know that suspending a league or tournament is not easy I know they're going to be crazy knock on effects for teams leagues athletes everybody who works those games and relies on that income to pay their rent or their mortgage I understand that I'm extremely concerned about that empathetic but this again is not just a bug according to healthcare officials this is a pandemic and again this is not being paranoid this is not being an alarmist I don't think you're either of those things to take serious steps because we're looking in the face of a pandemic it gets called a pandemic in two elite athletes have already tested positive in going back to my point with Howard back my question Howard back is that mean they're the only two who have it or does that mean they're the only two who tested positive you have to either lead athletes who've already tested positive it's a global pandemic yeah you wanna hold a basketball game or you want to hold a hockey game or you want to hold a baseball game what happens if you hold any vent NBA player or a coach gets sick what happens if a bunch of college athletes who aren't being compensated get sick again nobody loves March madness more than me selection Sunday is the best Jon Rothstein is the best the first Thursday and Friday of the tournament or the best one shining moment is the best this is one of my favorite times of year I love talking to coaches from small schools that you may not know who have crazy stories there's some of my favorite interviews of the year because you get guys who were digging ditches or working in sales and out on the biggest stage and they're loving it believe me this is good for my brand it's good for the show it's good for business I love the tournament for the players and no it's not lost on me that for seniors this would be their last chance at NC double a tournament and if that's postponed that opportunity is ripped from them it jacks up everything it socks it's the worst this could be their last or their only look at it but if you're a professional sports league or you're the NC double a or a conference tournament you have to say for whom for what for who and for what you're not going to get a price for being tossed right now you're not going to be awarded a prize for looking it in the eye you're not gonna get a price for making jokes about it the touching every microphone status we go bear hunting glass Donovan Mitchell by the way again go bear in Mitchell are the first guys to test positive it does not mean they are the first or only elite athletes or NBA players to have it there is a difference like I hate that I'm saying this hate that I'm saying this I never thought that I'd be calling for the suspension of professional leagues and of the NC double a tournament but when health officials are calling it a pandemic when areas are putting limits on the size of gatherings encouraging social distancing it is really difficult to justify continuing to hold sporting events for the time being the way to slow the spread of a virus is did take serious action these are serious times they call for serious action one eight hundred six three six eight six eight six are we a

means the NC double a will listen considering this is their paddle in how about the big east this week was gonna happen I lost an item you know all I know is going to have the fans there in these moments they'll be fans there right I don't know how quickly that will change but we are certainly headed in the direction of not sports being canceled why you don't see that it is too much money involved well they're losing money though they are losing the TV money right away but you know yeah right I read today the claim from the warriors because they had a press conference about all this that they're losing tens of millions of dollars Bernice T. shirt everything will be okay everything will be okay that's great I'm not like that here's a statement NC double a president mark Emmert he's announced that the NC double a tournament both went men and women will be played with only essential personnel in arenas today go that doesn't mean the Big East Tournament tonight or any other conference tournament on sure had not direction but the NC double a tournament will be played and we play with no fancy dancy tournament games here's his statement ready this is funny you have a good time here yeah the NC double a minute continues to assess the impact of covert nineteen in consultation with public health officials and our covert nineteen advisory panel which we talked about based on their advice and my discussions with the NC double a board of governors I have made the decision to conduct our upcoming championship events include division one men's and women's basketball tournament with only essential staff and limited family attendance while I understand how disappointing this is for all fans of our sports my decision is based on the current understanding of how cold it nineteen is progressing in the United States the decision is in the best interest of public health including that of the coaches administrators fans and most importantly our student athletes we recognize the opportunity compete in NC double a national championship is an experience of a lifetime for the students and their families today we will move forward and conduct championships consistent with the current information and will continue to monitor and make adjustments as needed so I take that as the entire tournament will be sounds like without sounds like it's an unless something dramatic happens I don't know so here's the good news no overtime when there's been things going on in our country sports has served as a great distraction as we know and we've seen many examples of that sports will continue to be that great distraction because here's the truth as weird as this is going to be as odd as this is going to be as memorable as this is going to be let's face it we never going to forget so we were all walking the earth we never gonna forget the twenty twenty spring when the NC double a tournament was played without fans whenever I get it right but ninety nine point nine percent of the people that watch the tournament ourselves included don't go through and we still have the games so if people are social distancing that's a term Joe social distance that's right I know a lot of people like that even before this happened of course was so a lot of work to so my choice right a lot of social business thing you can still get the sports that we love so we can still serve as a distraction during this very odd time that's what I would define this as right now very very odd time he's beyond died so the NC double a tournament is going to be played you can still fill out your brackets but it's going to be played without fans mmhm and this is weird is it the right decision here's a thing about right and wrong to be honest with you Joel I don't know if it's the right decision I have no idea because I'm not a doctor as much as I try to read about this to know if this is needed or necessary hello I don't know if maybe someday we'll look back at this books will be written Joe it'll get to analyze will say boy they did a great job canceling these events this was the right thing to do well maybe we're gonna look back and say right what a waste of time yeah I don't know all I know is they're doing it and we are never going to forget it that's one thing about this to do the job we have never gonna forget it especially when Kevin Willis cotton down a net in the right that's gonna be crazy because we're not going well we essential job we are absolutely essential yeah I get that you're too will guys at a less ascential then maybe you could tell by the way who here beyond beyond on essential sports follows sports that follow sports that follows sports yes for two gonna follow but I I think it's only logical I know with the NC double a turning of a lot more people traveling to go to a game which makes it a Petri dish for I guess infectious diseases most NBA games NHL Galen feature that many people traveling it's a little bit different a little bit different but I would assume and that's why I said this to earlier on the show and certainly yesterday not based on any expert knowledge is based on the reality that we're gonna see a lot of this yeah going to you would think so and so now we know the NC double a tournament is on that's the good news for many sports fans out there the odd news bad news good news depending on

"Day since conference tourney time in the NC double a this is where you know the big conferences are getting started we're gonna have some crazy conference tournaments it's where the smaller conferences are you know who's gonna get that automatic bid into the dance for all these small conferences made major conference is but not all these conferences are getting off without a hitch in fact the Ivy League canceled both their men's and women's basketball tournaments on Tuesday because of concerns about the spread across the virus and for those of you who are wondering why are so many municipality is phone many governing our body is why is every so concerned about the spread of corona virus that you know here in the states we don't have that many confirmed cases we don't have that many confirm dad's here is what is legitimately a problem for trying to understand corona virus in America because testing is so little there there are so few people tested so hard to get tasks done and because a lot of people who have been tested there's not enough people to do the testing so the test samples are expiring E. for the tasks can be completed it is creating just unbelievably ridiculous difficulty for us in America to know actually how widespread it is where it's concentrating because there's not enough going down as far as getting the tests done and getting them done in a proper timeline so that we can actually now I think that we're you know we're just country in the world and yeah there were unfortunate decisions made at government levels that we created an environment where we can't get enough tests done we can't get tests done fast enough if the main it's kind of insane that that's the that's the actual world we live in right now so as a result there are governing bodies and sports in college there are government officials who are in the clamp down because they don't know all how much it's spreading they just know they don't want to continue to suppress so they're talking to health officials and they're trying to get information there as far as what to do so the Ivy League canceled both its men's owns basketball tournaments and they're giving their automatic bids to their regular season champions so for the women Princeton's going to dance for the men yells going to the dance at the NC double a allows conferences to decide you know what their conference tournaments going to be if they're going to have a conference tournament so we I believe is within its rights to do this and I was a lot of people who are probably be unhappy about it but they are within their rights to do it now the big west announced on Tuesday it's gonna play its men's and women's basketball tournaments with no spectators because of concerns about products they have their tournament starts it started actually on Tuesday night.

"And NC double a tournament CD nothing that would be with the game's main the rest of the way yeah exactly I mean they rose to fourteen huge and gentiles rankings and that's advanced analytics obviously a thing that they're probably in the high twenties still much this is a team that that when we've seen or switching their ceiling and compact anybody else around the country and these guys complete with anybody in any your weapons with so much parity I thank god that paternity here as if I was a leveraged letters gets back into game shape and and it's guys continue to play emerges they are front runners another when he won his second straight fresh rather weak under the mall was there yesterday in the cable out for sixteen point you start to get the shots so playing with more confidence in your searching you want her to learn a little bit more to you know in in cash games they were defending the post one way and they were going to stray from that now you're seeing different defense envelopes and they've adjusted and that's when you can really tell the guy can coach the second time around when you're playing a team the second time in and what they've done how they just in the majors Dayton time is on my opinion and how they defended Cassius Winston or they told us a lot about this coaching staff so one way to go but you've got to feel pretty good about their postseason chances are enough your Michigan fan here how to guide how many more wins the thing they need the rest of the way to be a lock on selection Sunday for the NC double a tournament including the big ten tournament I might put that number at three maybe right yeah yeah I'd say about that if you get a more the bad loss at home to Nebraska but none of the other games if you lose that you were to lose five out of six and then you'd be in trouble but none of the other games individually are going to move the needle that much as when it comes to ranking in that ranking or anything else because you're playing good teams on the road you're playing the teams at all and we only got one more game Nebraska against a team that stinks so you got on board the battle lost if they were to win two more I think they would be fine you know but I think it I think three three is still probably most likely looking at that right schedule but it wouldn't surprise me at all to get the form to are they still have to go to Rutgers they have to go to Ohio state I think that's a winnable game especially with a DJ carton then they have to go to mail that's gonna be a really tough one and the year I'm come that one is a loss but other than that it was canceled last at home and took care of business that I think you're just fine as well so the will ring dog on the Michigan insider on the huge radio network joining us on the metro health university of Michigan helping us on how many teams you think from the big ten are going to get in to the turn on yeah it sounds like ten right now the end is in a lot of trouble at this point they've got to win some games and they've got a tough schedule down the stretch so produce got some work to do as well but they play well at homes mission could really put a damper on their chances of being when they're so the only two that don't have any chance right a northwestern and Nebraska unless they win the big ten tournament I can't remember year ever in which I've said that you know we've got fourteen teams man this league is top to bottom as good as I've ever seen it and the is that the at the same time you can learn anything including a look at the plaster they go to Maryland they almost beat the rush out of there with the room with no time lapse with a chance to win the game so you can't put those those games for granted either so should be a fine finish man these last three weeks to be really exciting and always love the big ten tournament especially in Indianapolis man that's a great venue for that tournament because when you go down from Minnesota will six in eighty Indiana in Indianapolis to produce I mean you literally will have a big ten tournament or there might be twelve teams I could win it seriously yeah new tires I completely agree with that body and you know you want to avoid plan on Wednesday obviously and there's still a lot of good teams that's some good teams are gonna be played on Wednesday this year let's be honest in a lot with a lot at stake in the end it's probably going to be one of the so I teams at least a lot of talent show you.

"The other way to look at it is what it does prove is that jim gadoe wasn't out there just working deals in the dark without he was very clearly comfortable working with coaches who were involved because he was allegedly working with at least one nc state coach so i think that what that proves is that you can't really tell the story of this was just a dita's and they were working in the dark they wouldn't lend coaches no because it clearly or at least it apparently wasn't the case at nc state and i think that is perhaps a small point but i point worth making it's i think it's a relatively big point and what's also interesting here is in the fbi document it basically says that dennis smith got cold feet junior got cold feet didn't wanna go to nc state and it was only after more money was provided from an assistant coach or a head coach we don't know what kind of coach that smith wound up staying on and going to nc state it's the opposite of what happened with the sousa who wanted to go to kansas and money to be steered one way or the other according to the fbi in order to make sure that he went there instead of maryland with dennis smith junior i thought i thought that was just i thought that was intriguing just to kind of see how i guess how close it could have been to not happening and thousands and thousands of dollars was put in place to make sure i mean it's.

"The nc state story to me as far less interesting because at kansas you've got a current coaching staff that could get caught up in this you've got a current player who is caught up in this and you've got a final four banner that could be vacated a string of big twelve tournament i mean big twelve championships that might be halted the stakes are much higher kansas at nc state the coaching staff that was involved there then is no longer there the player who is at the core of this is no longer there it doesn't mean that nc state couldn't oh and what are they like who cares guy sure nc state bans on some level would be happy to vacate that diocese just just why please vacated for wipe it from our record books and memories so like who cares it doesn't mean that could go on probation or something and i suppose kevin keats could have to deal with some repercussions from that eventually assuming he still the head coach there when this when this all is dealt with at the ncaa level but the stakes are so much lower at nc state than they are kansas for the reasons i stated the one thing that i do find interesting is that the difference here between the city stay cases that the fbi is not alleging at least not at this point that keynes's coaches were aware or involved but they do make it clear that at least one nc state coach was aware and involved and you can i guess interpret that one of two ways one way if you're kansas fan this is the way you probably are like well that proves that our coaches weren't aware involved.
