"Made worse. The lousy economic conditions in france people had to spend more for food and therefore had less money remaining to spend on other things an economic slowdown resulted. Layoffs were many into this faure. The popular jacques neck was again appointed for the second time in august of seventeen eighty eight to francis director of finance and he immediately tried to impose price controls on grain. This was seen by many as a positive response to the problem but neka inherited it almost hopeless fiscal and political situation. His other large and important duty at this time was to reconvene the estates general. These states general is i have mentioned before was last convened in the year. Sixteen fourteen. Some one hundred seventy five years before the sixteen fourteen estates general was comprised of three orders or states the first estate comprised the clergy the second estate comprised the nobles the third estate comprised the commoners and the bourgeoisie. It is important to understand the states. General then voted per order in other words. Each estate only had one vote so does quickly obvious that any two of the estates could outvote the third. That detail is vital to this story going forward. So at the start of the discussion in france aside from the legislative representative assembly examples set by the sixteen fourteen stay general offerings. Had to go on for this newly convened states general where the make shift local assemblies and parliaments to guide it in how and estates general should look like there was also the issue of defining what was clergy who was a noble and what was a commoner and also how the members to be called deputies. Were to be selected. Almost immediately after the decision was made to reconvene the states general. A national discussion began about increasing the size of the third estate and that the third estate to be should be allowed to vote by head rather than per a state on december twenty seventh seventeen eighty eight. The king of france determined that the size of thirty third state would be roughly doubled.

"That's a problem for opponents. Don't care a chemistry notwithstanding like we're not talking about just pure basketball iq and that's what Was talking about the basketball. I q of both elissa thomas and bretons and how they are just elite that way. I think it's going to be seamless. Honestly i think she's been practicing so it's not like okay. You've been taking shots on the side. Now here's the game. No she's been working with the team. So i think that whatever chemistry were talking about. I think they've saved worked on it And the way. Kurt miller says we're optimistic so i'm like clearly she's blended in pretty easily or the coachie wouldn't say that it was like well. You know we're still working on chemistry paint. He did not say that. He said she looked good. She did or why everyone spaces like she looks like she's out there. Five five with contact ready to ball in a game. I'm like let's go. let's let's let's see so. I don't think i think if he had been concerned i would have been concerned about chemistry but the fact that he didn't bring it up like i think she's ready to go ready to grow with her. The team's ready to go with kids. It's just a little bit about how you change tactically because it's it is going to be a big difference in their spacing. I was just thinking about when you're talking like this is a perfect bill. Nba team. I think this is the most this is one of the most billion beer teams ever seen. He's not coaching at it. Just like this big bruising force that is like now truly truly like we two thousand nineteen they were they they up. It wasn't fun to play. And now it's like they're out to out to kill you like this really gonna win or we're going to take you down with us so i love. This team are really excited. Connecticut i also want to talk about seattle and phoenix. That's massive game. But there are some news that i think would interest you on christie lisa binding ten new a tv. Play by play for walks. I just saw. I know i know what she she gave me able bring on those out of the day and i know it's hard for needed to keep from percolating good news about good friends. Great friends but oh my gosh. It hit so. I was in tears. Happy tears when when lisa binder told may i made a history maker once again. Oh my gosh start crying. But anyway no lisa wasted knows. I love her. And i'm so proud of everything that she's done. What a great summer. She had always give her flowers Respect are so much for everything that she does not just the basketball college football. You know nba wnba everything. Everything But now to just cracked at stealing gabe to be the first play by play in the history of the nba as a woman and a dynamic woman. Indeed i just. I'm over the moon with joy for her and thrilled for her. And oh my gosh. It hit the news. Choose like i wanted to tell you before it hit the and a likable screaming the house. Then i couldn't say anything other than amazing that's amazing i couldn't come up with any other words but did i just i just beyond thrilled for her. And you know my younger son. Jordan has a jersey. I told her. I would put that on and and walk around in a you know in the house or something but yeah. I'm super happy. At least that's my girl. Nana's my so i'm very excited to watch Milwaukee bucks Bucks games on mba. Pass this year and listened to your endless turkey. Because she she she amazing job. Amazing job during the olympics maze job on big ten network so very excited for her. And we'll we'll we'll see her come. Nba season but he had tre now. Sorry i did. I saw it. Krissy definitely has thoughts on this than i need to back to back to phoenix and seattle meller. Big game this friday. I'm guessing it's at some ungodly hour. Probably like one. Am or something but seattle phoenix. Basically this is for the three seed five seed range. So it's it's important for obvious reasons because this is the the spot where you go from having your home your home playoff game or having to go down to the five the five eight mattress or gap to single One so huge. Huge game here For seattle and phoenix seattle. Obviously without brennan stewart. Yeah don't but this is why this game is even more important. His she was supposed to be reevaluated for the playoffs right. That was the language that we heard from does the language. Yeah yeah But yacht three less days if you lose this game essentially not not fully but if you lose this game phoenix essentially there is. You're going to be in that spot. And if that happens you have three days to get bannister healthy. I'm not sure this team can win. Even in that first round let's say against the washington mystics without I'm not sure at this point because it's been a rough time with seattle for a lot of the post olympic break just in terms of waiting to see them be that really great team and then they just got absolutely hammered. Eighty one fifty three said. La a team that had not score a Elliot's defensive great. They can't really score. You know anyone. Points annual is like yeah. Do you believe at all in seattle to get the job done on. Prominent ivy is going to be tough without sewer a man. She is just such a lynchpin for them. But you know speaking of l. a. third in the league defensive efficiency but offensively. They were not very efficient going to that game but just were on fire. Neka neka gulick. And you know. I just think that the whole team was clicking whole team. Was clicking an eye out for seattle telling me nothing fifty three points. You can't square fifty three points in the game and then come back to me and tell me. The other team is playing great. I'm sorry i eat that. That's best bad fifty three for the game. Yeah i hear you. I think you know. Sometimes you know when you take a player commits and i'm not giving seattle an excuse giving them a reality. A dose of reality. And like what i see. This is what it is like. When you take a player like that off of the floor and we're talking about continuity and chemistry with a list. Thomas coming into the mix. Well the same could be said one aby when you take a player like stuart out of the mix right. I mean now your whole dynamic has changed. Your whole flow of offense has changed You know i. I just think that was a part of it as well but fifty i know but fifty three points is fifty three times but i also twenty six twenty you could. I think i mean maybe it's not all twenty eight of those points. You know the difference. But i think at least half of that was due to her not being on the floor. I mean she's a shot blocker. She's a rebound or it's not just scoring. that was missing. It was a presence on defense. It was you know the way she rebounds the blow. I just think there are other.

I forgot what what dick mantle said was that she played up were recorded where everyone was amoco. Subtractive almo go. She can make some vinyl.

But still i think the idea that you know. The platform isn't as much worse than the fee is probably not wreck not right. I don't think. I think people are looking illiterate wrong. In that respect it probably will be beneficial if they could play flat rate like similar to like some example with superclubs are just pay a flat rate or maybe they play in terms of tears. That might be a good way to do it. But in general i germany. Do think this is one of the rare occasions where paternity as far exceeds any of the monetary fee.

"It was horrible. It was absolutely horrible and and some of my fellow workers even noticed it like we happy with it. I said now. I hated it. And at one of our anchors Shelly slater's yeah. I didn't think you'd like it is. There was no emotion at all. And i usually tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve and i said no but it almost had to be that way because if i stop to think about my mom who had just died sickly earlier i think i would have lost. It broke down crying. And i didn't wanna do that either. Obviously and i think there's something similar to that for this time for me to convey the message that i hope to convey when i leave there has to be some emotion attached to it just has to be for people to have to understanding of how much i appreciate the opportunity that i've been given the support that i've been given the platform that i've been given. I think has to be a bit of a choke in my throat to convey that. If i get the saban up there then i'll probably wrap it up probably today but i. I don't think i will i. I'm i'm not necessarily looking forward to doing my last broadcast But i kind of looking forward to reading this final commentary on the air because i kind kinda proud of i. I talk about a lot of different things It seems too long to make right rank. They runs like three arrows. Like three minutes twenty seconds and it's got video in neka stabber but i've read it to a few people. Everyone i'm like. That's the fastest three twenty. I've ever heard in my life. It's is pretty good. I hope. I mean i i i kinda i kinda like it. So while i'll take my chances cio received. Well hopefully made it this far. It's one of our longer visits. And i just enjoy hearing people tell stories and if they're a little longer stories i'm fine with it and if people have been in the business for a long time i'm interested in dick. Ford was longtime newsman. In saint louis he'd been retired for a number of years and he worked in his early seventies and i started having him on my radio show on ktar s and people loved it. They'd be texting and ask them about this or can we call in people loved it and after we did a couple of times i wanted to have a back and he said martin nobody cares are not an old news man. They don't wanna hear his stories. And i said actually dick. That's not true. People do want to hear your old story. So i guess it's not just me so i enjoyed getting to talked to dale hansen again. I'd heard that name for many years Namely the old news director kingsley. Smith had told stories and fun to hear the just kinda crazy time. It's a different era for sportscasters. You know a lot of drink in between shows it or not. That doesn't go on any more so appreciate him. Being on the show as always.

"I have off the top of my head but just to go up what Lindsay was talking about in her episode. Was amazing. spencer's you really need to check it out One of the things that made me think about this is a mere actually had run a lot on labor solidarity and black athletes. And there's this really cool p. She hasn't bitch media from last year and just sort of talking about the ways in which the wnba stalwarts for this type of collaborative collective action and how the wildcat strike of twenty twenty which was also compounded by trauma in black communities and unrealized communities. And i think that's things we also can't separate was the effect of this in racial is communities as well and one of the things is Encoding amirah the recent. Sporting strike reminds us that athletes are workers in that labor. Resistance is a key tool for black liberation and that really the whole thing is great but that really struck out for me and how collective is a tool of resistance. We need to keep that in mind. This and how. I think you know you take something. Like athletes in their platform is bag and it is important when we have these narratives like. Oh this person's greedy this person's greedy. It's not the club it's not the team. It's not you know that that does shape the way we look at relations between labor and capitalism our bosses of workers. More generally right you know. Sports is a metaphor for so many things so it shapes the way we we see labor relations beyond sports. I think so. Why does the media continue to blame. Individual layers in. I wanna talk a little. Bit about instances where we've seen. This really affects players lindsay. You know sometimes. The media needs to be smacked over the head with the fact that loyalty doesn't actually get players like what they think it does right. That loyalty isn't the be all end all players and they don't have the control within the system and i think you know it's a little bit different because this isn't like club play but you know what we saw happen with neka mckay.

"Basketball fans and welcome to a new episode your favorite. espn's women's basketball podcast around the rim. I am to rica foster. Bradsby you our producer and i guess you can say host. I i mean like i kinda do that from time to time so i'll take that i'll own that title for today but i'm excited to be here with you guys and excited to kick off this show if i am introducing the podcast that i'm sure you have assumed that china robinson our host in fearless leader won't be joining us today. But do not fret because she has given the reins over to someone who we absolutely love who is more than capable and who we are going to enjoy sitting in the driver's seat today and that is none other than women's basketball analyst and play by play you may may have heard her on the pac twelve network and i'm sure you have seen her across social media representing for the pacific northwest. Cindy brunson super excited to have her acting as guest host today and she's going to be joined by two panelists who we know. Bring the absolute best to women's basketball. And that is rachel. Gallaghen of wind cider and the nine newsletter's founder and editor chief howard meg dole la- china is one of those amazing a women's basketball voices in analysts whose coverage goes beyond just our podcast and so and certain moments she needs to take a break Not necessarily because he's resting but because she's continually working to spread our game. It's a cover women's basketball so we're going to allow her an opportunity to take on some other endeavors and while she is out we are going to have some other voices on our podcast over the next couple of weeks. Some you may know some. Maybe you don't know In across all spectrums so espn voices. Non espn voices but we just wanna make sure that we provide an array of all types of analysis to help us as we head into the second half of the season just a couple of quick things to note before we get into the podcast. And i know the china usually has. It's her clipboard. Where she talks about some things that are very important to her. But i don't have a clipboard. I have a tablet. So we're gonna call this to reestablish tablet so just a couple of things on my tablet. I we want to most certainly give a congrats to ty young tamra young. She retired from the wnba this week after twelve years. You have seen her with the dream you've seen her with the aces you've seen her with seattle but most notably. I'm sure you remember her stint which chicago twelve years in this league and she announced via a video in a message on instagram. Why she decided to walk away from the courts. Or if you're interested in seeing her why you can definitely had overturn instagram and check that out but listen tie. Young has most certainly been one of the best in our game She spent the two thousand nine to two thousand seventeen season in chicago appearing in two hundred sixteen games. She was drafted Eighth overall in the two thousand eight draft by the atlanta dream and listen. She's played overseas She's just been one who has most certainly made her mark in the wnba. And so we just want to congratulate her and wish her well on whatever she chooses to endeavor post a basketball career. Also want to give a shout out to my colleague here at espn. Chennai go mckay as well as her sisters. Neka in erica. As they have been listed on nigeria's provisional roster which means they could all play together for the nigerian national team which is something that we have not seen before. We've never seen three siblings. All play in the olympics together in that way and so that would be super fears for them to do so. I know that there has been lots of controversy. Recently surrounding neka mckay's emission from team usa. And so this is most certainly something that i know would be very special to her as well as to chennai and erica day. Come from nigerian ancestry. Their mom and dad or nigerian-born and they themselves hold dual citizenship between nigeria. And the united states. So i know the pride that they have in their nigerian routes. I know the love and pride that they have in in for the game of basketball so just want to give a shout out to them. There has not been an official naming of them to the twelve persons roster just yet but just the fact that you know they have been named to the provisional roster and have the opportunity to represent nigeria in the olympics as a family is just something to be commended. So kudos to you. Ladies before we get into the show we just want to share with you. An opportunity for you to relive one of the greatest icons and most successful teams in sports history michael jordan in the nineteen ninety seven. Ninety eight chicago bulls..

She's making her tenth all star parents. I mean she's on team. Usa suber twelve time all-star on the all star team and no shade. I mean definitely deserving but so is neka period i if the rossi bony hurt for a month and still make the team then darn it neka can be hurt for a month and make it to okay unable as we say. Let's say what we're saying is well. Let's put on spot so we're energy right now is we're gonna. We're gonna pick a spot for nick. And i know i know i know what you're saying. I think i think you're right for team. Usa team usa should have been that his name at the top. Maybe a couple of other people's name ripe yasser and then you build out the roster. I'm with you there but now that we're here we're had been broken. The omelette is on the skillet so we gotta figure out. What are we taking out of here to put in to put a neckarsulm kit. Let's start with the us women's team. I'm like okay. I'll tell you who i think so. I think a lot of people pointed tina charles. I'm like i don't if i'm having a basketball team. And i have the opportunity patina charles on it right now. Absolutely no chance. I'm having a basketball team. That does not have tina charles on. If i can't charles on like yeah she's been. Mvp all your so. I'm looking at the front court players. Because i don't want to try to figure out the guards because i think the like they needed all these cards. Okay so we have brennan stewart. I think brianna brings a little something different. I think asia wilson Is brings a little something different and also you want those players in your system you want you want. Usa fans to see these players and recognize that. These are the future copacetic thing. So now that leaves us with. I think if he's collier should be on there too just because if we're still it's now unless down to two choices here britney griner sylvia fowles. You gotta have breeding ground on the team. Just in case you need someone who's bigger than everyone else point blank period. That's the story and she's only been there once only has one gold medal. So i think it's important to keep her in. The system is four gold medals. And i'd sylvia is one of if not the greatest center in the history of the wnba. That being said ain't gonna make a difference to team your bottom line if it sylvia fowles or if it's negative mckay. They're going to win the gold medal regardless if if it's soviet naked you in bank them. So that's why i'm gonna pick sylvia fowles off the roster has nothing to do the way faust playing has nothing to do what you brings a team and understand that a lot of people are gonna say. Well that's how you pick a basketball team. I don't disagree with that and a lot of places bond team usa. I think career achievement commitment to the team and not being there before really matters so i would take sil sil out output neka in to her spot. That's my what we have here you but again. Gabe i disagree and i love. I've loved nafeesa collar. And i love her upside and her game. Neka over nafisa collier. That's my tech and that's not that's not disrespecting collier's game i love her game so the pizza. I don't know if you're listening. You know the the the team would be in a listen. I get it. And i'm not hating and i'm not like shaming her for making it and she shouldn't have made it no. I'm not saying that. She should have made responding but if there were a player to take off and put neck on it would be for me. It would be caller and she has. She's young like she has upside. Like i don't know like in the next four years already have to wait an extra year for these olympics and you know health and everything you know with bernard and with obviously with terachi. You know they're they might be playing for years right then. There's a chance for effete to call your to make the roster the next time and definitely warranted definitely deserving definitely but neka right now is is next like this. This is as sue bird than it's roc- olympic game situation so for me like a man in four years who knows if we have bird to rossi and neka go mckay available for the olympic games but guess who is available this time for it to three of them give them give them the opportunity to play. That's all i'm saying. I'm not obviously on any committee for the olympic team blah blah blah. But at the same time. I'm like well this is their this is their chance. I mean it only comes around every couple of years and this time five years later like man who knows what else are in. hopefully there's no other pandemic that sets it. All you know by more years ahead like it's insane. Think about that part of it and think about it that way. That nafisa has some years in her career to get it again. So i can't say the same for mecca saw move nafisa collier off the list and put mecca on it because of that fact the thing with the young players in the olympic team is that you need when you're at all no i mean the women the women's side things a little different because ever if you're invited for the most part As a woman to be on the women's national team you're gonna go whereas the men's team is a little bit more fickle so it's more important obviously to get the young players there by still think on the side it's important to get young players like act like ariel atkins and if he's caller andbranch during in asia wilson. All that brand stewart's already balancing but to get those players into the us system and to get them with that senior team in the olympic so that next year right like you mentioned next time around in whatever it is. I don't actually know what her schedule is next. Time like a lot of these players. We let shubert. Tina charles skyla digging smith. Maybe fouls chelsea gray britney griner Still be around and diane rossy like those are gone so now. We're going into next year's next time olympics with a new team. Usa president by the way yes a new team usa president. And then we're going to have all new all new team. So i think the thinking behind having those young players there is you want to get them into the next time..

"Let's let's not mess things we were talking about when we're talking about the certain oregon duck who and make it but you know what i think would last night i will say this is good for her for. I think this is good for the duck and question the question question. I think this is good for her from a mental standpoint because she's dealing with a lot no way and i think this is good for her this. The olympic break is going to be very good for her in a sense to kind of take some time off. Recharge your batteries a little bit. Don't end sending her to the all star game. Would it put some just unnecessary pressure upon her. So i'm not gonna so. I'm not going to quarrel with leaving her off the roster by any stretch the imagination. I think i think she would even agree with that point. This would not be fan. Popularity alone would not be the way she would want to earn it. I liked that. I liked that in danny before we get your reactions. I just do want to make note that Well first of all thank you to the seattle storm because they sent an email so now can look at the whole list and not have to look at the chattan. Press all the buttons and do all the things so auntie thanks you seattle storm but another thing is that so we know the twelve players that the coaches selected. But i have yet to see. Because i don't think the wnba has sent us an e mail although they still email me to an old emails Check that anyway I haven't seen the full list of the. What was it thirty six players. The top thirty six like who are the top vote-getters and you know what's that difference between Between the roster and the top vote-getters. I mean i don't know. I see shape put link. I'm gonna check that out. But danny let's get your thoughts on the roster and then maybe some thoughts about who you think could have been some of the top vote just high met someone who i'm happy to see on this list that we haven't mentioned yet I've is think of riquet is going to be really fucking fun in the all star game Like you know we can talk about her problems. Shooting vol efficiently all vomit by. You know we've spoken so much about how the all star game is ultimately at the end of the day exhibition ultimately at the end of the day. Fun and she's someone. I can see easily catching fire and going for like i don't want to put a number on it because i don't want anyone pulling out receipts on me when she if she if she doesn't say you know i can really easily see a rica having a game in the all star game like and yeah also. She's done so she is. I think underrated -ly a great media presence for the league lake people really really like ary gay people. Follow her. All and yeah. I'm also really happy to see the copper. There were games last year where she was the best player on the floor of the chicago sky for sure and yeah She's been talked about a bit more already. It's just well deserved. She's star in this league. She has been a star in this league for over a year And the i mean like she she certainly would have been locked for a bubble all star game. If we had one end like it would be a shame. Virginis never visit you know. She hasn't been she hasn't hit quite the same story marks due to how you know candace parker is there. But she's close still and she still could get over that fourteen points per game mark Amy well-deserved deserved even if it was just for the season but especially factoring in las season Interesting so i know that a few of us were talking earlier and it seems like neka. I kinda was joking. Because now i feel bad that i put that energy out in in the universe but again shea sent the link because i hadn't seen it in my email but it looks like neka was one of the top vote-getters did not get offered one of the twelve roster spots. So is this a snub. I say no. I also kind of feel gutted at the same time. So i'm working through my feels live. That's why we love green green room but I don't know that's just a little while to me that obviously that's the first name i was looking for but any other snub spoke. So i've got one. I've got a snub. A and many of you may know this. Because i've sort of been working on a story for a bit on this but What about sammy whitcomb. Yes i had the same say. You stole miles. Yes yes sammy i believe. Does she lead the league and true. Shooting percentage fact. Jesse does i got it right in front of me. She leads the league. Wonderful wonderful that teamwork miles. So yes I believe sammy has been snubbed. But to go back to neka for a moment i. i don't think she snubbed. And i was actually looking at the list in front of me. The two teams that don't have representation at this all star game our la and The fever the fever obviously may be doesn't come as a surprise but it's just a little stark that you know two teams don't have representation and i kind of disagree with that and i disagree with this in the in the realm of all of all star games. Because it's called the all star game for reasons. I think every team should.

"That we have luckily seen some of this as sky show saying the chat. Wnba we need merge. We've started to see more avenues. But yeah the all star game is supposed to be a celebration for both the players and for the fans of all of all the achievements that we've seen on the court to that point and at this point it's it's a couple of years that we've been robbed of an all star game to this point So i'm excited to see the players. Get out there. But i also as is true of oughta fans and a lot of players that we've spoken to have some confusion surrounding. The commissioner's cup a lot of players. We're not sure what was going on with that. So it's not just the all star game that hasn't been concrete -ly explained and defined. It's it's so much of it. And i applaud the leaves initiative but it could sometimes be a little bit crisper in. It's indeed indeed. Danny bar lavi has now joined us on. The state is is this the stage. I dunno. it's it was locker room. It was green room. And then of course there's clubhouse edano we'll call it the stage daily bar lavi also here and so. This is a part of the contingency that that goes to new york liberty game the beat writers here. So danny i'd love to have you wait in here will first of all i on that last point that you said i really do appreciate actually them going back to vegas just because of how well. Gnc in care of the players on the weekends like obviously from a fan perspective it would be cool to share the love a little bit and see if you all three games in other cities but like las vegas vile and the players seem to like it. So that's full. This format is so weird right. Have we talked about that. It's i i keep going in out of whether or not i'm a fan of it The team usa versus the rest for that my initial gut reaction when it was announced with just like you know i found it strange to thank you know the way we think about team. Usa it implies that one team is going to be necessarily better than the other. But as we're seeing like that's in terms of talent not necessarily the case. I also still find it interesting. Just in terms of like the time that he m- usa will have with each other ahead of the scheme versus the time. The other all star team will have ahead of each other at ahead of the game. I mean like yeah also like. Did you ever get clarity on whether or not i the all team. Usa members are officially all stars. Okay so all good things. And i think we can just leave it there like who knows right. That's part of what we're shining about. I think i love what you mentioned about vegas because when the all star game was held in vegas what was that. I guess we're going back to twenty nineteen. that's right. Yeah you already like asia. Wilson was already on her propaganda. Like you know and this is the best we've ever had. Now how how you know you never bid. You ain't never been to seattle which i talk about. But whatever she was on her. You know this is the best we've ever seen in. It should be here. You know every year and other players started hearing that throughout the weekend. I've also heard elsewhere that perhaps this is already something. That is an actual thing as in las vegas will be hosting multiple all-star weekends but as someone who will as of tomorrow be hosting locked on crack in the seattle crack team playing in climate pledge arena where they will have the high task of trying to match the seattle storm championships I can tell us dewey in them. They're ready for climate. Pledge arena to open up and to maybe give vegas some competition and then of course all of us make our way to barclays. I'm not confident. Barclays is is the top two especially with vegas and now climate pledge arena once that renovation is done but maybe top five in the league. I'm thinking so. I don't know is it. Is it fair to some of these. Other places or other franchises that have really made moves to improve their arena and or have gotten different ownership particularly on the nba side. I don't know rosters. And since we're at commercial break at least on my television. I do wanna get this out there and i know i was talking about this in the In a little group chat. But like okay. I have a hot heartache. I'm gonna put it out here. Public my heartache. Is that neka. Agoo mckay should not be an all-star a wnba all-star if we're going by performance in the league she should one thousand percent via wnba all-star if we are going for all of the wealthy and then so what i think at the end of the day it's like you said at the beginning erica releases beginning when i tuned in All-star games are events for the fans by the fans. And know i hate to. I hate to bring up. The i bring up a an example for men's league but this is how we get this how we get a things like john scott winning the when the nhl all star games mvp award therefore the fans by the fans are popularity contests at the end of the day. And it's part of the reason kind of why they're almost an endangered species because we have more access to neck oga mckay than ever before and if we want to see her take on the seattle storm. The las vegas aces. All we have to go is all we have to do is wait until the game happens. Or we go on youtube and we look up the highlights and whatnot. So i so. I think we i think it's a case of So it's a case of it. Defense want her there. She'll be there. Basically whatever generates the most attention the most ratings and this could be. This is a good showcase for league. And if anyone represents this league in a positive light Neka certainly does so. She's and of course she also She also has a movie coming out you might. She's going to be appearing in the space jam. Seek will so that could be some cross promotion right there. So i totally get what you're saying in a perfect world the all star game would be based on on court merits and whatnot but at the same time it's almost like this is a wnba event and you can't tell the story of this league of this modern league without talking about both the on court and off court efforts of neck oak mckay. It almost wouldn't feel complete without neka there. So i feel like we will see her in some way shape or form. I think that's very well said jeff. See auntie comes with all the spice. And then i allow you to to be the honey in the t. If y'all l i that i am surprised. They'll go ahead. sorry. I i just wanted to say that. I'm surprised that you didn't want this drama. Erica that you don't want neka getting a chance to show that. She was snubbed from the team. Usa that's the thing is that like i'm of the opinion ila vacuum but in all stars in all sorts of functions should be based on encore in that season. But this is such a different all-star game as we've been talking about it like you know the the decision to make it team. Usa versus versus the rest of the all stars in the decision to stop neka from team usa like does cast an entirely different pallor in an entirely different tone over the voting process and over the game itself. And so. I think that like as jeff was saying. This is more than ever a narrative all star game because of how it's different and like maybe in another season i would find You know like..

"Guest today is al-baghdadi who together with akhmed got nash. Is the author of the book. The middle east crisis factory. I wanted to start by talking about the recent history of the middle east as it's affected you directly because your current circumstances a kind of a product of the recent history of the middle east so i was wondering if you could talk us through that a bit and explain how it is. You come to be talking to us today from oslo and that's a good question and one that is personally relevant for me. I mean i had kind of a white upbringing out say in the united arab emirates. My family really was formed in the united arab emirates and nineteen seventies. I was born there. And i do buy in the nineteen eighties. Maybe even into the nineteen nineties was kind of like one of those best kept secrets. It was boring in a good way. In the sense that it's that one place in this turbulent region where people could move and they could have a successful career and there was no instability around the united arab emirates. The results of news about you know things happening in iraq and iran but mostly on that side of the gulf things were quiet. My own family however came from a much. More turbulent history. My father was born shortly before the nineteen forty eight neka the exodus of palestinians from historical palestine. My mother herself was born diaspora in damascus. So there was lot of instability that kind of pre existed that. I was never exposed to so growing up in the united arab emirates. You are in this kind of place which has more or less in this. Very turbulent region an island of stability at least seemed to the until twenty seven.

"I had pitched game to zev. Schlesinger of zemun games ideology. He did my game camelot. Legends on and would go on to do a game that i designed with jason aachen's called parthenon and so he started to develop a relationship with neck any ca the national entertainment collectibles association. And they had they would acquire all of these different rights and would also get the game rights but weren't doing any games because they they do these amazing prop replicas and they do action figures that the kind of action figures that are hand painted and that are just beautiful works of art that are done all in house and they're sculpted in house and so these are very high end collectibles that they were creating but they here they were getting all these rights to these board games for these licenses as part of a package but they didn't have anyone to create the games so was friends with the owner of neka and that person asset to round up some designers and decrease some games based on some licenses so zev said to me. Hey andrew would you be interested in making a collectible card game based upon the nightmare before christmas and the nightmare before christmas happen to be one of my favorite movies of all time i had never designed to collectible card game before but i had helped play tests collectible card games for publishers. I had helped a little bit play. Test the star wars collectible card game. And i spent a lot of time. Play testing the lord of the rings trading card game at all in tier so i kind of and i played a lot of them so that was my first one and then after that basically through and eventually zev too busy to be involved with that anymore i was just directly working with neka. They would say to me. Hey we've got another license. We've got office space. The card game We've got Harry potter game gremlins game. So can you work on these games for us. And i was like yeah. I'll course i will. Harry potter was really challenging to do because the licensing requirements on that was through both Jk rollings of folks and also through warner brothers so we had two levels of approvals to go through. It took a very long time to get through that but the game ended up being worth it. I think But then after that. So this is around two thousand nine two thousand ten neka than purchased wiz kits most famous for its hero clicks and for its major night clicks. Game before they did the major night board game which is more famous now. They had a collectible miniatures. Game called major night And so i thought okay now. They've hired a bunch of designers. I was just freelancing for them so that's the end of that but what happened. Was the folks whiz. Kids contacted me and said hey you know what you worked on harry potter and so on. Would you be interested in doing anything else for us. I said yes definitely yes. I missed doing these licenses. So they asked me to do a hunger games game and then from there. They would contact me every once in a while..

Fish farmings future, and how microbes compete for space on our face

"Now we have staff writer eric. Stock said he wrote a feature on the modernisation of fish breeding in this week's issue. Hi eric a great to be back. Sarah great to have you so fish. Farming is modernizing and on the rise. What's the big picture here. The big picture if you go back to nineteen fifty. And you compare what's happened. Over the last seventy years you can see with with wild caught fish. The overall harvests flattened off in the last couple of decades but aquaculture's continuing to rise that production of farmed seafood. Nearly half the protein that we eat from aquatic organisms is grown on farms. Most of it is freshwater and in asia most of the farm fish in the world coming from the land. These are ponds with carpenter them up. Harp common carp to loppy right trout. Catfish there are a lot of these Aquaculture species would are being grown on land. I was surprised to learn. That fish are behind the times. Humans have been keeping fish to eat or at least a look at for thousands of years. But as you point out in your story fish haven't been altered through breeding like other livestock. How things been different. The big differences that most of the seafood that we're eating it is closer to being wild than the terrestrial livestock. Do you think just because the people who did this intensive breeding the people who were interested in tracing lineages of animals and getting the best from their cows. They just weren't that interested in fish farming or in seafood. Is it just a coincidence of history that the focus of all this intensive breeding has been terrestrial animals. If you're talking about the last century or the last one hundred and fifty years worth you're talking about thousands of years right about thousands of years of thousands of years right so over ten thousand years where humans first domesticated sheep goats cows and then lived with them and over that time. Pick the ones that had the traits that they liked they gave more milk. They had more meat on the bone. That's been happening for a longer time. We've had a longer stable relationship for the most part right. There are some exceptions here for the most part a longer relationship with those animals that walk around. Then with the ones specially no from the sea and the other is that over those thousands of years. the terrestrial livestock went through population bottlenecks that reduce their genetic diversity. It's like when you bring a few parents cows to a continent but nobody's bringing around a pond full of fish right. That's a great point. It is harder to bring those with you as your trucking across the continent there is some archaeological evidence for aquaculture. There's a lot of i inference. There is evidence in australia. Aboriginal people in six thousand years ago. Where building ponds to keep eels. But who knows you know to what extent they were selecting. If you can control the life cycle that's really the key thing with domestication and being able to have it reproduce in captivity right and then you really can pick the ones that you like and selectively breed. Those for continued improvements now. Researchers are jumping way ahead skipping centuries of painstaking documentation breeding line analysis and using modern technologies to get what they want from fish. Well what do we want from fish. Eric it depends on who you are right on the one hand. If you're a fish farmer their key things that you want the first one is fish to grow well or not just fish. They'll probably say fish a lot but we're really talking about a huge range of organisms right fish. Crustaceans molluscs really hugely different organisms. But no matter what you're growing you want creatures that grow. Well they have a lot of protein that you can sell to the grocery stores new consumers. You want bigger fatter oysters. Send you want large fillets you want them coming from animals that grow quickly so maybe you can do more generations right more cycles per year. So that's the first thing you want. The second thing you want. is hardy. Animals healthy animals ones that resist disease. And this is. It's a huge issue in aquaculture breaks of disease can really hamper an operation in shrimp farms. You could lose forty percent of your entire crop. In all of those cases having disease resistant animals is a real benefit. Fast and good growers diseases in animals. Anything else that you want out of your domesticated livestock. Once you've made progress with that. Breeders will turn to traits like in what does that fillet look like was salmond consumers really like reddish pink fillets so you can read salmon to have naturally redder flesh color around her fish right rather than a longer fish war color apparently in japan trout with a bluer color and fewer spots or spots. Just in the right place on the outside of the fish that's desirable so chilean breeders of optimize their trout that they export for those qualities. What technologies are fish. Farmers livestock breeders using to achieve these goals. You need to do as a breeder is. You need to be able to pick the fish that you want to propagate so four a faster growing fish. that's not hard right. You just need a ruler. In a scale you can. And when salmon breeding got underway in the late sixties early seventies. They were getting gains in growth rate of ten fifteen percent per generation. Right at wow. And put that in the context right. If you're a poultry breeder a few percent is a really good thing. Yeah so you can measure that but it's not always simple if you want to measure the color of the flay obviously you need to Sacrifice the fish right. So you can't use that fish for a hattrick because it's It's dead so what the breeders of done is the used. Something called family based approach where they have crosses between two parents and then the offspring hundreds thousands in a tank and they can test some of those but they'd have to use siblings for the actual production of the fish that go off to the farms.

Fish farmings future, and how microbes compete for space on our face

"Now we have staff writer eric. Stock said he wrote a feature on the modernisation of fish breeding in this week's issue. Hi eric a great to be back. Sarah great to have you so fish. Farming is modernizing and on the rise. What's the big picture here. The big picture if you go back to nineteen fifty. And you compare what's happened. Over the last seventy years you can see with with wild caught fish. The overall harvests flattened off in the last couple of decades but aquaculture's continuing to rise that production of farmed seafood. Nearly half the protein that we eat from aquatic organisms is grown on farms. Most of it is freshwater and in asia most of the farm fish in the world coming from the land. These are ponds with carpenter them up. Harp common carp to loppy right trout. Catfish there are a lot of these Aquaculture species would are being grown on land. I was surprised to learn. That fish are behind the times. Humans have been keeping fish to eat or at least a look at for thousands of years. But as you point out in your story fish haven't been altered through breeding like other livestock. How things been different. The big differences that most of the seafood that we're eating it is closer to being wild than the terrestrial livestock. Do you think just because the people who did this intensive breeding the people who were interested in tracing lineages of animals and getting the best from their cows. They just weren't that interested in fish farming or in seafood. Is it just a coincidence of history that the focus of all this intensive breeding has been terrestrial animals. If you're talking about the last century or the last one hundred and fifty years worth you're talking about thousands of years right about thousands of years of thousands of years right so over ten thousand years where humans first domesticated sheep goats cows and then lived with them and over that time. Pick the ones that had the traits that they liked they gave more milk. They had more meat on the bone. That's been happening for a longer time. We've had a longer stable relationship for the most part right. There are some exceptions here for the most part a longer relationship with those animals that walk around. Then with the ones specially no from the sea and the other is that over those thousands of years. the terrestrial livestock went through population bottlenecks that reduce their genetic diversity. It's like when you bring a few parents cows to a continent but nobody's bringing around a pond full of fish right. That's a great point. It is harder to bring those with you as your trucking across the continent there is some archaeological evidence for aquaculture. There's a lot of i inference. There is evidence in australia. Aboriginal people in six thousand years ago. Where building ponds to keep eels. But who knows you know to what extent they were selecting. If you can control the life cycle that's really the key thing with domestication and being able to have it reproduce in captivity right and then you really can pick the ones that you like and selectively breed. Those for continued improvements now. Researchers are jumping way ahead skipping centuries of painstaking documentation breeding line analysis and using modern technologies to get what they want from fish. Well what do we want from fish. Eric it depends on who you are right on the one hand. If you're a fish farmer their key things that you want the first one is fish to grow well or not just fish. They'll probably say fish a lot but we're really talking about a huge range of organisms right fish. Crustaceans molluscs really hugely different organisms. But no matter what you're growing you want creatures that grow. Well they have a lot of protein that you can sell to the grocery stores new consumers. You want bigger fatter oysters. Send you want large fillets you want them coming from animals that grow quickly so maybe you can do more generations right more cycles per year. So that's the first thing you want. The second thing you want. is hardy. Animals healthy animals ones that resist disease. And this is. It's a huge issue in aquaculture breaks of disease can really hamper an operation in shrimp farms. You could lose forty percent of your entire crop. In all of those cases having disease resistant animals is a real benefit. Fast and good growers diseases in animals. Anything else that you want out of your domesticated livestock. Once you've made progress with that. Breeders will turn to traits like in what does that fillet look like was salmond consumers really like reddish pink fillets so you can read salmon to have naturally redder flesh color around her fish right rather than a longer fish war color apparently in japan trout with a bluer color and fewer spots or spots. Just in the right place on the outside of the fish that's desirable so chilean breeders of optimize their trout that they export for those qualities. What technologies are fish. Farmers livestock breeders using to achieve these goals. You need to do as a breeder is. You need to be able to pick the fish that you want to propagate so four a faster growing fish. that's not hard right. You just need a ruler. In a scale you can. And when salmon breeding got underway in the late sixties early seventies. They were getting gains in growth rate of ten fifteen percent per generation. Right at wow. And put that in the context right. If you're a poultry breeder a few percent is a really good thing. Yeah so you can measure that but it's not always simple if you want to measure the color of the flay obviously you need to Sacrifice the fish right. So you can't use that fish for a hattrick because it's It's dead so what the breeders of done is the used. Something called family based approach where they have crosses between two parents and then the offspring hundreds thousands in a tank and they can test some of those but they'd have to use siblings for the actual production of the fish that go off to the farms. How do they know which sibling. Which family members carry those desirable traits. So the technology comes into this is using genetic markers where you can look for.
