COVID-19 vaccinations happening in phases

"Welcome everyone to our special holiday edition of mayo clinic. Qna we're recording this podcast on december the twenty first twenty twenty and i'm your host. Dr halina gonzaga. Well in the last week. The news has been filled with reports and photographs of Healthcare workers receiving the first covid nineteen vaccine. More vaccine should be available. This week has another Vaccine has been approved for emergency use authorization in the united states. We're excited to hear the updates about this today. So let's get right. Jump right into it with our favorite co host and guest to dr greg. Poland infectious disease and vaccine and biology expert. At mayo clinic. Who's here to tell us what's going on in the world of covid backseats. Merry christmas to you and to everybody who watches yes. Merry christmas happy hanukkah happy holidays. Good to see you greg's today christmas tree. You have well thank you very much s. I'm broadcasting from home today. Because i off this week so It's nice to be here with everyone all right greg. Let's jump right into it. We have a pfizer vaccine which has begun to be distributed and individuals in the health and healthcare in particular been receiving it and now maderas vaccine has been approved for emergency use authorization. Will you tell us again. What is easy way and at. What does this mean for us. So it's a very good question because you way is different than a licensed product e you way is a designation that says given the data we have we believe. The known benefits outweigh the known risks. That is different than a licensed vaccine that says the known benefits outweigh any known risks. So a subtle difference meaningful difference in what that means is that high risk individuals will get the vaccine as you pointed out. Healthcare providers around the us have started to their immunization series but more and more data will be accumulated under this eu way. So that we can get to the point of a fully licensed seen greg here. In rochester minnesota we have about thirty nine thousand healthcare workers waiting to be vaccinated at mayo clinic. And i'm curious. Does the fact that the moderna vaccine was approved for you a means that we will have more vaccine available or those vaccines going to different populations. No it absolutely will mean more availability of vaccine. Madonna has about one hundred million doses. They expect to deliver twenty million as much as we have of pfizer in the us by the end of this month and then that lat next eighty million rolled out over january and february so particularly when we get into january and february. I think we're gonna see unless something unexpected happens. We're going to see a lot of vaccine starting to become available so this is great news for our listeners. Well because when we as soon as health care. Workers and other essential workers obviously are vaccinated. We can start moving to the absolutely the. Cdc advisory committee met this past saturday and sunday and their recommendation. After the frontline healthcare workers is that essential workers and people over the age of seventy five are the next way so that will start happening in which just kind of march are way down by risk till the point that everybody that wants one will be able to get one well. It's wonderful that we're in a situation to begin considering that now and how to navigate that christmas all the more meaningful. Does what a christmas. Present say greg. There's a third vaccine that is coming up close astrazeneca. Can you tell us about how that process is going. And a little bit about the distinction with that vaccine. Where will be headed. There's still some work to do with the astrazeneca vaccine now. This is an adn. No virus vaccine the pfizer in modern vaccines r. m. r. a. Vaccine's the differences. This with them are in a we. Give the genetic blueprint gets into. The cell makes the protein spike protein. That we've been develop immunity to yet no viruses kind of one step in back of that. It's that genetic blueprint in a virus. That cannot replicate. It gets into the cell that dna gets into the nucleus of the cell. In this case gets converted to are rene and then act just the same way as an mr. rene that axiom so it's an additional step. The issue is that the astra zeneca vaccine did run into some manufacturing problem and in a way serendipitous -ly because they discovered that two full doses led to about seventy percent efficacy whereas a half dose as the first dose and of full dose as the second dose led the ninety percent advocacy so That that indeed is a a mistake in our favor so to speak. And i think they'll need to run some more studies on that. Only three thousand people got that half doses followed by a full dose. They'll do some more studies and then we'll start to see that become available very likely by e you weigh in that first. Quarter twenty twenty one greg. I feel like every time. I asked me ho vaccine works. It gets more complicated. And my eyes start to glaze over as it goes over my head. But i know that the pfizer vaccine in madeira network. Very similarly there are relatively newer technology. Is there a comparison to the astrazeneca vaccine as far as vaccines that we already commonly use or is that an technologist. It's also be newer technology. Now we actually have a viral vector vaccine licensed in the. Us not really used much here. It's neat bowl of that scene. But in this case they use of esp virus rather than an ad no virus to carry that genetic blueprint into the cell. But you know they act. I think the way we should think about it is m. r. a an ad no virus or any viral vector vaccine operate very similarly at the most basic level there simply delivering the genetic blueprint. Think of it as the engine for a car. The car's already there. It just needs the engine to get going and that that blueprint that that genetic code is what an a or an adenovirus vector bac brings to the cell and then it matches that car puts that engine in produces the spike protein and we develop immunity. And it's extremely efficacious. I mean again. I is again. Describe to you. How surprised i was that we were at ninety. Five percent efficacy. This is this is outstanding. I mean it is described as a grand slam so great in because i am had this question repeated by colleagues and by listeners as well there's no concern that that genetic material that were supplying to vaccine could be incorporated into our own genetic material and change us permanently in any way. So you know. I like to be very very honest. And transparent about this with the mr rene vaccines no at all it cannot. It does not have the attributes that would even allow it to get into the nucleus of a cell. Where our chromosomes our he ad. No virus and viral vector scenes. Do have the dna that they carry get into the nucleus of the cell so that it can make 'em are nick so is there a theoretical risk. You have to say yes. What is the observed risk. It's never been observed to integrate into Mammalian chromosomes so the observed risk is in fact zero. But you know you can never say never. It's just it's never been seen so we're pretty confident. Another thing that i had heard and knowing that there are there's kind of a you know we're all waiting for vaccine at this. Point is that the pfizer vaccine has had some extra doses in the vitals. I think that it was that they were intended for five doses but some of the pharmacies felt that they could get six doses out of them. What's the situation with adding. Are those usable doses. Absolutely they they are on. It's actually not a surprise to us. I guess it was a surprise to the media so the bottles. It's like anything to be on the safe side. You say that there are five doses in there but remember that the doses point three m l. And you're putting one point eight m l. of sterile sailing in to reconstitute the vaccine. So you can actually get i actually upwards of seven doses in it. The key thing is that you just draw out point three. You need to get the full point three dose but otherwise. Yeah i mean it it. It effectively extends the number of doses that we can give. And i think that probably just didn't come through very clearly to a lot of people so after i received the first dose or our listeners. First dose of the vaccine do. I then have immunity against covid nineteen or does it require that i get booster shot again later to really have the immunity. No right now. You definitely need the second dose. Nobody has studied a single dose and not gotten the second dose. And here's what we know in the pfizer end. The dern study people that got the first dose about seven days later between fifty and eighty percent of them had what we think will be a protective immune response but fifty or eighty in. There is not enough compared to ninety five. And that's what that second dose does it takes you from here and boo shoo up to there so we definitely want people to get doses. The other thing that is that not only do more and more people get protected. But your antibody level goes up and remember that the higher your antibody when you finish the longer it would take for that antibody level to start decreasing so with is in fact important. That you get two doses. So how long. After the second dose can we consider ourselves immune. Well you know. It's about ninety five percent efficacious so there still be five percent or so of people who may not respond to the to the vaccine when you look across an entire population. That's still hundreds of thousands. So we wanna be careful in. We get eighty plus percent of the population immunize. But what we're saying is that in that Seven to fourteen days after the second dose. You're going to have the level of protection that you can get out of that vaccine so just after. We're celebrating that there are vaccines available. They're all these new stories about the virus mutating and rising in different in a mutated form in different areas in europe etcetera. Can you tell us about that. And are there concerns about this for the united states while the vaccines that we have worked for this So let's let's break this down because it is important. The new variant is called vu. I twenty twenty twelve o one. Bu i stands for variant under investigation twenty twenty the year twelve the month and it's the first variant In december now this particular very int- is of concern for several reasons. It has seventeen mutations and one of those changes in amino acid in the receptor binding domain. The part that antibody would and spike protein bind to so it's actually an important mutation in fact the modeling studies which are different than laboratory studies but the modeling studies suggest. Based on what we're seeing in in the uk and in continental europe is that this may be as much as seventy percent more transmissible so the absolute worst thing that could happen is widespread travel over the christmas holidays and this variance spread and actually become variant that spreads more easily than the strain that we currently have the question. You best is the really important one. Does that vary in tab. Any functional significance could ebeid monoclonal. Antibodies or an antiviral treatment or vaccine induced immunity. We don't think so at this point but that is a possibility. That's being a very closely looked at but you know we had this burien detected in october in the uk. It's now in denmark. The netherlands Australia belgium italy and it will come to the us so you know it's again one of those things that you know. If i could wave a one. I would say no travel. And don't don't let this virus continue to be transferred from one human after another because it will. Just keep accumulating mutations by chance alone one day one of these mutations is gonna cause in much worse disease or evade. The vaccine immunity that we have again. We haven't seen that yet. But that is a biologic possibility and i certainly think that in the uk they have taken that to heart have really increased the restrictions on travel over the christmas and new year holiday. Entertainment i talked with one of my colleagues over there by email and they were working all weekend on this Starting laboratory tests to say. What's really going to happen with this marion as you say. A number of countries now have a lockdown any flights from the uk coming into their countries because of fear of widespread transmission of this variant in some situations travel may be essential for certain individuals. And i know that the cdc has put out some guidance around recommendations for being tested. if one must travel. Maybe you could clarify those with us. I also saw that. There is a home test approved again. I'm wondering is that accurate now. That's a good question. Julia and i don't actually have a lot of details on the new Home test that was approved. I'm wary because a lot of those tests have undergone eu way approval only to find out in the in the testing round that they're not as sensitive or specific as we would like leading to false positives and false negatives. So i don't know if this new tests will will be found to perform well asset gets widely used. But you know. The recommendation is that people not travel. If for some reason they don't they have to travel. The best thing to do would be to started quarantine ten days before you're gonna travel get tested the three to five days before you travel once you travel wherever you are three to five days later get tested again. The problem is this. And i have fielded. I dunno. I can't count anymore. Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of phone calls and emails. No one thinks that they're the one that's infected particularly when they don't have symptoms. I dealt with family this weekend where they had one breach of letting a family member in normally isn't in their home for a meal and six of them got infected. One ended up in the hospital. That's how easily this happens. And as i say nobody thinks they're the one carrying the virus but the fact is when you get up to what we have over eighteen million cases in the us Three hundred thousand new cases a day. Now we're at a point. Where about one thousand americans have died of cova and the best estimate is that by the time this is done one. Out of every seven hundred americans will have died of So you know it is in all of our interests to not allow this virus to spread and and get the vaccines out so we can be over with this as soon as possible. It's a really sobering reminder greg and very poignant to hear personal examples from people who've had difficulty in their families. Thank you for sharing that. I have a question for you about vaccine allocation again. So my curiosity is that we have these phases of individuals who are supposed to be a vaccinated according to essential workers healthcare workers etcetera. How do you identify. Those people are being registered somewhere. Does the government have that information or how. How does one register is an essential worker to get a vaccine france. You know this is. This is the you know. The actual practical operational difficult eighty of what sounds like a good plan because there is no registry of essential workers there is no registry of who are the frontline health care workers who are more in the background so the way the plan was devised is that The whatever number of doses of vaccine we had would be allocated to each state and within that state in their state public health departments for example at the state level. They would make the decision about how to allocate doses. Now the problem is that they're not getting as many doses from pfizer as they thought. We've gone from forty million to twenty million dose thackeray. Well the the idea was and it sounds almost too simplistic but pfizer was saying that we will have forty million doses. That's different than we currently have for. Ba- million what we currently have is twenty million and by the end of the month forty million doses and i think people again missing terported that there was some kind of communication snafu in there. So what will then happen. At the at the state level is each state will make allocation decisions usually going because of the freezer requirements to the larger medical centers. Giving them the vaccine and giving them the steps of who's in the first wave second wave third way that cetera all the way till this weekend. Cdc defined seven different waves of priorities for vaccine as you're pointing out at mayo clinic. We have no idea who is who works in an essential job. Who's a police officer while you can figure that one out pretty quickly but grocery clerks Re air workers daycare workers repair p. You know it's very hard to do. So i think there is an aspect of that that will be honored based right. We hope people would be truthful because we want the people who are most at risk because they're helping other people and sustaining our society or have medical problems that place them at high risk. They should be first in line. That's how i feel about it. I couldn't live with my conscience. I should not be one of the very first soon after that. Yes because i teach in the hospital etc. But i'm not working directly in the code unit. I'm not gonna try to step ahead of those people. I couldn't live with myself if i did that. So an orderly process to it all. Yes they fighting that it's happening now. Greatness yes this is. This is great news. I mean this is an unparalleled human achievement. It's unbelievable that in nine or ten months from from genetic identification of the organism we have what appeared to be by every measure. We know to us safe and effective vaccines. There's more to do. We've only done this for nine or ten months but this is a. This is an unbelievable human achievement. We are literally living through a golden age of science. Which makes it all the harder to realize that there are people who rejects science. But that doesn't swayed me. This is a golden age and we are reaping the benefit and it is wonderful to have hoped for the holidays indeed indeed a wonderful christmas and holiday gift for all of us. Thank you for being here greg. My pleasure thanks to each of you for being with us. Today we visited with dr greg poland from mayo clinic who's an expert in bac scenes a viruses and infectious disease. And we certainly wish all of you. Wonderful holidays.

Shooting for a Green Recovery

"Hello and welcome to an extra sustainable futures report for Wednesday the twenty seventh of May. They'll still be one on Friday making headlines. Some politicians activists and commentators are calling for a green recovering. A changed world as we come out of. Covid lockdown our enders arguments of what that actually means how we do it when we do it and whether we can do it. Meanwhile some fossil fuel companies are accused of failing to meet targets some agitating photography dropped and some politicians quietly dropping away. Anyway the would in the markets is that green investment is a success story and elsewhere the sun is shining on a new ables even if some of them are all at sea or lake then net zero. What is actually mean and could becks. Help and we have a new patron. Welcome to the newest patron POW mcallister. Queensland Australia I was going to say your first patron in Australia but in fact that distinction goes to talk who's near Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. Many thanks to Pamela mccallister calling clock and all other patrons who helped to make the sustainable futures possible and a special mention to imaging little John's my longest standing patron special. Thanks to you. What's the news? Well it's the Green Recovery Transform the Journal of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment Reports. That more than one million citizens had joined forces with a hundred environmental. Ngos to urge the EU to launch the biggest green investment package. The world has ever seen in response to the coronavirus crisis. The green ten coalition of Environmental Organizations as Lord SM- appeal urging lawmakers to invest hundreds of billions into home renovations scaling up renewable energy restoring nutella habitats boosting public transport zero emission ability and greening agriculture the e EU Recovery Fund can be. Used to unlock an estimated one point eight trillion euros opportunity by twenty thirty by making better use of materials and reducing waste. According to Patrick Shred and David McGinty writing on Euractiv Dot Com France Germany. I proposed a five hundred. Billion Euro Recovery Fund to help euro-zone economies affected by the coronavirus followed by a separate proposal from the so-called Frugal. Full The Netherlands Australia Denmark and Sweden while there are some significant differences between the plans they both refer to the need for a Green Transition. This unprecedented economic stimulus provides the EU with the opportunity to go even further and accelerate the shift to assert secretary. Recall this all. Depends they say on. First using the green stimulus to ensure progress on the secretary. Economy is not further reversed by the COVID nineteen crisis second promoting more resilience to safeguard against resource shortages and supply chain risks and third promoting the use global leadership on the secular economy through international cross-sector cooperation to support a recovery which is also just and inclusive will covid nineteen fiscal recovery packages accelerate or retard progress on climate change. Well that's the talk of a paper. By Cameron Heaven Brana Callahan. Nicholas stunned justice. Stiglitz Dmitri's and Gallus published in the Oxford Review of economic policy. Joseph Stiglitz is a former chief economist at the World Bank and a Nobel Prize winner Nicholas. Stern is professor of economics and government and chair of the grunt. Some Research Institute on Climate Change on the environment at the London School of Economics and Twenty ten professor College de France. He was all of these stun review which urged the then government to act promptly on climate. Because the cost of inaction would rise year-by-year that was in two thousand six. The paper says the COVID nineteen crisis is likely to have dramatic consequences for progress on climate. Change IMMINENT FISCAL RECOVERY. Packages could entrench all partly displace the current fossil fuel intensive economic system. Nicholas Stern is to saying that stimulating new jobs. In heavily emitting sectors was short-sighted. The jobs of the past are insecure jobs. He said to create future jobs. We need the right kind of finance in the right place at the right scale at the right price. Mark Collie former governor of the Bank of England and now a finance advisor to Boris Johnson. For Cop Twenty six the UN climate conference to discuss progress to the Paris agreement called for all companies to disclose their plans to reach net zero emissions every company in every sector every bank in every insurance every pension fund should be expecting to develop an disclose a transition plan to net zero. He set the UK can seize the opportunity as president and host of the crunch UN climate talks to lead the way on an international green recovery lead. The Economist said in a briefing ministers to accompany the Oxford study results. Many of the projects that could create new jobs in the UK all Shovel. Ready compliant with social distancing requirements and could be started quickly said Cameron Heaven Director of the Smith School of enterprise and the environment at Oxford University and lead author of the study. He cited energy efficiency programs to insulate the. Uk's drafty housing saw the building of electric vehicle charging networks redesigning roads and we'll cycling flood protection and planting trees these old need large-scale deployment off a low to moderate skilled work and we'll have benefits in terms of climate change as well as boosting the economy. He said the Oxford Study. Compared Green stimulus projects with traditional stimulus such as measures taken after the two thousand global financial crisis and found green projects. Create more jobs to live higher short-term returns per pound spent by the government on lead to increase long-term savings clean energy infrastructure construction is one example generating twice as many jobs per pound of government expenditure as fossil fuel projects around the world others include expanding broadband. So we'll people who work from home tackling. Climate Change has the answer to economic problems. Professor Heaven told. The Guardian stimulus packages after the two thousand eight financial crisis governments largely failed to capitalize on the COB and cutting potential of their spending poly. Because then there was a lack of shovel. Ready initiatives he greenpeace is complaining at the news. The British government is apparently giving him a major row in the presidency of COP. Twenty six to oil major be pay following discussions with Andrew leads him minister for energy. That is the same Andrea lead SOM. Who has in the past voted against wind power supported fracking and admitted that when she took office? A first question to our officials was east climate. Change Rail at Milne's the shouted business secretary highs cold for green recovery plans to include creating a zero carbon army of young people doing work such as planting trees insulating buildings and working on green technologies s and p global market intelligence reports executives from more than one hundred and fifty companies around the world that have a combined market capitalisation of more than two point four trillion dollars have signed a statement calling on governments to plan green economic recovery from the COVID nineteen crisis as countries work on economic aid and recovery packages in response to Covid nineteen as they prepare to submit and Hans national climate plans under the Paris Agreement. We are calling on governments to re imagine a better. Future grounded in bold. Climate Action said the statement which was organized by the Science based targets initiative. The science based target initiative is a collaboration between seating pay the carbon disclosure project will resources institute the Worldwide Fund for Nature and the United Nations Global Compact? The Confederation of British Industry CBI as calculated the green economy contributed a third of the UK's economic growth in twenty ten eleven following financial crisis while Britain's traditional economic engines floundered at the same time. They said that the choice between Green old growth was a false one earlier. This month they. Ceo's of some sixty organizations including Developments good energy on the Royal Society for the protection of Birds Roach to the UK. Prime Minister saying it is now clear up than ever before the health of humanity is inextricably bound to the health of our planet. Your government has the opportunity to show global leadership forging a path out of this crisis by putting a resilient economy healthy communities and a thriving natural world at the heart of the relief and recovery effort. They called foal a more. Resilient economy increased space for wildlife and people strengthening nature's protections building global ambition in the run-up to cop twenty six and they went to low league committee on Climate Change also to the government in a letter headed building a resilient recovery from the COVID nineteen crisis that key recommendations whether the government should prioritize actions according to six principals. Full eight resilient recovery. These are used climate investments to support the economic recovery. Jobs lead a shift tools. Positive long-term behaviors tackle the wider resilience deficit on Climate Change and Beg Fantas as a core principle and show. The recovery is not lock in greenhouse gas emissions or increased climate risk strengthen incentives to reduce emissions when considering fiscal changes the Lancet Patrie health journal walls that we need to inspire climate action without inducing climate despair. Autho Christie Nickel goats mock reports recently in assisting class with the climate health learning activity focusing on solutions. One student commented to another that she just could not see a way out of the present situation. Comments such as this can bring the ethical safeguarding responsibility of educators. Into focus should educate as be providing. Support to students who consciously on internally engage with the devastation of the climate and its impact on health and so might be susceptible to experiencing so as Talia Ecological Grief Ego anxiety pessimism. There appears to be a fine balance for educators between safeguarding. The mental health of students who might feel climate spat on the one hand and inspiring students to take personal action on the other by presenting the facts of this unprecedented and existential threat to humanity. Of course it's not just students who are likely to suffer from echo anxiety and this may be exacerbated by more fragile mental health due to the COVID. Look down an issue that we maybe should explore in more detail in future episodes. Meanwhile business green reports carbon emissions have fallen dramatically as a result of lockdown as I've commented previously the total annual reduction depends on how long lockdown continues and how far we go back to business as usual afterwards. We've heard myriad voices calling for things to be done better. But this could mean policies at odds with the beliefs of many governments like a reduction inequality a universal basic income Farah taxes public infrastructure investment and public management of natural monopolies like water health and railways. No amount of earnest. Entreaties will change anything unless governments all over the world take action on the fossil fuel front Australian and Canadian governments are working hard to promote their uncle. Fossil fuel industries. Something else free future representative. We've mentioned that. Be Pay as being offered by the government to play around and cop twenty six. Why not when the company has committed to be carbon neutral by twenty fifty and BP's new chief executive has said that the impact of the coronavirus pandemic deepened his commitment to shrinking the all John's carbon footprint two zero well revolt from the Transition Pathway Initiative states that BP along with most other oil companies is not doing nearly enough to meet its stated target quitting other research by I I am as transformed. Journal says that the mining industry is not aligned with its own climate goals. Either one solution to this dynamics across to move the goalposts. Australia's `electricity grid operator. Wants the power to remotely switch off constrain. The output of new rooftop solar systems as it finds ways to manage South Australia's weld leading levels of invisible and uncontrolled sonal output. It complains that the runaway success of solar power poses serious challenges for the security of the grid because it operates behind the meter out of control of the authorities. It's estimated that up to eighty five percent of South Australia's podge amount could be met by solar by twenty twenty five. There is no coal fired generation in South Australia. Apart from wind and solar the main source of electricity is natural gas of also fuel with some hydro on some diesel. A dirty fossil fuel backup. There ought to battery storage installations. No doubt balancing. The grid will be a challenge but show them all. Urgent challenge is reducing emissions from power generation looking at other regulations. A recent article in the Lancet looks at public reporting of the use of fracking chemicals in the USA announcing more positive news. The Rockefeller Investment Funds divested from fossil fuels. Five years ago reports that the strategy was a success black rock the US investment manager which managed six point five trillion dollars in assets at the end of March found that investments in organizations with better records on social issues and good governance. Were more resilient than others. During the recent coronavirus market crash and the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change I G C C Roach to the governments of the g twenty nations urging a sustainable recovery on the renewables front. We learned that. Britain's largest city foam is poised to begin development in Kent while Dr Engineers. I'll building the world's biggest sun-seeking Sata fum in Kent Eight hundred eighty thousand. Solar panels will be installed cost of four hundred and forty million to generate three hundred and fifty megawatts on a site covering three hundred sixty four hectares. That's nine hundred acres of Funland Inova in Holland. Seventy four thousand. So panels will be installed on Islands Floating Reservoir. This will enable them to move to attract the some net. Zero zero is the holy grail. Every country is trying to achieve or knees promising to achieve another article from the Lancet reports. That New Zealand has been way ahead of the game but seems to have slowed up in recent years. Instead of looking for reduction some transport and agriculture the government is relying on offset from forest straight on. The article claims claims that the recent climate legislation does nothing to control me thing moving across the ocean. I've had a question from another listener in Australia. Carol dunce she says as a person. I couldn't find the answer to my key. Question does renewable natural gas. Are Angie emit as much or similar amounts of carbon into the atmosphere as natural gas? I understand that are Angie would reduce fracking and other destructive methods of acquiring fossil gas. That's fine but does it. Still destructive gas. Isn't it basically the same gas with perhaps different proportions through various audrey calms? This was my onset. Yes the question of our. Angie is vexed one. I have to speak as a layman to. I think that our engine which is mainly may saying probably admits as much co two as natural gas which is mainly me say the supporters of bio are putting that trust in banks which I discussed with James Dyke in game over on the twentieth of May the simple argument for bioenergy from would chit to waste. Is that the organic material that is burnt is replaced by new growth which absorbs an equivalent quantity of to to that which is emitted. There are problems with that in the growth takes far longer to recover the C two than it takes full. The emissions to be made and there are initials involved in constructing the bio energy plant harvesting the fuel and transporting it in theory the processes carbon-neutral but in practice that can be the case because of these events along comes backs bio energy with carbon capture and storage if the co two from the bio energy plant is captured dentists physically removed from the atmosphere and there is a reduction in the global total organic growth continues and that also removes co two from the atmosphere so even after the plant harvesting and transport emissions the operation could be net negative. This all depends on how the are Nj. The renewable natural gas is used evidence up as road fuel. There is no way to see her to be captured and stored only other hand if it is all usually location like a gas turbine for power generation or hydrogen production plant then captured storage. Should be possible but as far as I know no. Carbon capture is operating successfully at a commercial scale anywhere in the world. I may be wrong. If you know different please let me know.

Who is chair of the Consumer Protection Subcommittee Committee in Congress wrote a letter? Cossio Brian Roberts saying it is my belief that comcast corporation needs to be broken up. This is in reaction to the US executive branch coming in on the side of comcast in a discrimination lawsuit brought by the entertainment studios which is headed up by a man named Byron Allen. That discrimination case is appearing before the US Supreme Court November thirteen. Alan accuses comcast discrimination in its decisions not to carry cable television networks from entertainment studios representative rush supported. COMCAST'S ACQUISITION OF NBC Universal Back in two thousand nine. But he's not so happy with them these days all right. Let's talk about Disney. Let's do it in an interview. Disney CEO Bob Iger said that the Disney plus stream service will be available on fire TV devices vices and Samsung and L. G.. TV's at launch in the US. Which is coming Tuesday November twelfth just a few days from now Disney plus will also be available across Google Apple Bolt Microsoft and Roku as well Disney also announced more details about Disney pluses international? Roll out with the UK. Germany France Italy and Spain getting the service on March thirty first of twenty twenty within the next week Disney plus will be available in the US. Canada the Netherlands Australia and New Zealand Eiger also said that Disney Zinni plus will release more than sixty original movie and TV shows each movies and TV shows each year and FX and Fox searchlight will have designated homes on Hulu starting guarding in March. Yeah I mean this is getting a lot of attention. Don't get me wrong but I think may be lost on some people who follow this more closely like we do. How important important this is? This is the streaming service that everyone knows about and even people who don't get net flicks are likely elite to try signing up for I think for a lot of people this will be their first streaming service and this is the kind of thing that can then pull people industry mean when they say. Oh this is how how this works. Well that's interesting. You can get other things. This way could be the moment we point back to and say that's when the cord cutting wave really finally had it's inflection. Point is it might misinterpretation or is this sort of like Disney's game to lose. I mean they've got everything so they've got all the really really cool stuff and for some reason they have. I think they've prayed. Priced it at least half of what it should be. Maybe a third of what it should cost and so do all they have to do is put it out there. I mean we already know what's in there. It's awesome stuff. It's all this stuff we want right. Yeah no I think you're right like this. This kind of takes out of the equation. Will they like the content. Well I mean yes. There are people who aren't going to like all the content on Disney but man those are few small Alabama people. There's there's something for everybody in there. There's classic Disney stuff. There's high school musical stuff there's marvel there's Lucasfilm there's National Geographic. I mean it's it's all over the place so it's less likely that somebody's not gonna find someone something they like and like you said. The price is pretty affordable to well. Then I think that that's a big part of the a strategy rate ellison you mentioned it seems almost underpriced. Well that's how you get in there. Get into Disney. Plus you get used to it. You like it. Netflix has done done this over the years as well. We're raising our prices incrementally not too much but it's going to be a little bit more expensive than people go well. I I like Netflix. So it's you know it's it's that is the better way to do this because they are on a very competitive plainfield at this point in time is platform to like if you've got a fire TV a Samsung. TV It'll L. D. TV. You're no longer like wait. Am I going to get this. Yeah the answer is yes you can get it if you want the price wise if you get a free Disney account. It's like three three and a half bucks a month I mean. That's that's bananas low. I don't even I mean that's paying for three years. Are you worried. They're not gonNA make enough money. Allison you know you could probably maybe check into that. I just want you to survive his knee. We're worried about that. You know I think I mean yes they can raise the polite price later too but a lot of this is sunk cost for them. They already owned the rights. They didn't have to negotiate the rights for stuff. Although they're giving up revenue that they would have got if they'd licensed it out to somebody else but I think six ninety nine a month from a lot of people might make up for that. We'll see. Hey I want to do a follow up on the report yesterday remember. We talked about the fact that people receive text messages originally sent on February fourteenth causing a lot of uncomfortable situations The Virgin reports that a company called Sin Averse which provides third party networking services to mobile. Carriers says that was us. A single server was to blame claim. That's why it didn't happen to everybody. the server failed on February fourteenth. And so any messages it had on it waiting to be put it into the queue stayed on that server until it was brought back online November seventh at which point once the server was fired back up it said Oh wait we got some messages the buffer. Let's let's ship them out now. They had been trapped there since February fourteenth. There is no explanation yet why this server went down and didn't get noticed. which is I'm that's kind of the next obvious? Question is like really. Nobody noticed that much of were missing and you didn't. You didn't figure out that the server was offline but that is at least the technical 'cause now have we heard yet of the class action lawsuit of all of the relationships that broke up up because people thought they did not get their Valentine's Day greeting from there. Valentine oh well actually no. We haven't but I wouldn't. I wouldn't be shocked if there wasn't something along. Those lines. Garrick emailed US noting that there could be actual fall-outs where people might bring court cases because somebody has a restraining order against someone else. Get a message you know and and you know we're we're going on a year even if that person didn't do something wrong. That sounds like a very strange loophole. Pull to have to explain to authorities really. That'll work well. Netflix announced. It will no longer support some older. TV's and roku starting December. I I if you have a Samsung. TV from twenty ten or twenty eleven of video TV that is four years old or older or one of the falling Roku Roku Twenty fifty x twenty one hundred x two thousand see hd player SD player X.. Our player and ex deep layer is becoming more frequent occurrence with Hulu recently dropping support for LG. TV's TV's made before two thousand fourteen yeah on the one hand streaming stuff is maturing right because we're getting to the point like we with phones where you can no longer get UPDATES for certain things. It was funny when I I read this. I was like Oh Noah. I have kind of an old Samsung TV. It's circuit twenty thirteen. So I'm I'm in the clear but I also don't use the APP. I use other devices that I that I that I plug into my TV. And that I control them the way that I want to. So it's a principal thing and I think there are a lot of folks that do do this so it's it's unfortunate particularly for the LG folks because two thousand fourteen was not all that long ago when you're talking about TV's right right well. I I'm surprised you were able to find this time or the the actual levels. Because I went to Netflix his website it said supported Roku models and I clicked on it and it did not show me what models were supported under Roku. Luckily they had a little survey saying to this. Answer your question question thumbs up for thumbs down. Yeah this this came via a couple of different blogs that were reported back through the BBC these model numbers but yeah it. It seemed like Netflix wasn't really Excited about telling everybody which stuff They were going to stop supporting. They are sending a message through the APP though. So if you use used the APP and it's going to be deprecated you've been getting a message you already know. Oh good and so what's interesting about. That is a lot of people are now going to be upset about about this who weren't affected because they weren't using the APP but they're like but I could have been right and this is different than a phone. A phone. Not being supported is more expensive to replace you can easily get like a chrome cast or small Roku or fire TV for twenty to forty bucks in most cases TV. I'm not saying that makes it great. I think I. I wonder if it's just that Netflix doesn't want to spend the money on continuing to develop for older platforms but it does show why why relying on a TV's operating system isn't a long term strategy for anybody I don't give my TV access to the Internet Don't trust I don't trust at all on Wednesday apple. It specialist. Bob Gambler found a Mac. Os Database file that locally stores Info photo from mail and other APPs to be used by Siri to make better suggestion to users. Sounds great right well. File called snippets dot. DB was storing text from encrypted scripted males in an unencrypted file so if an attacker had access to your system files and you weren't using foul ball to encrypt your entire system than that. Hacker could access portions of emails that you thought were encrypted. Can the reported the issue to apple on July twenty ninth. Didn't receive a response until November feft apple told. The verge will address the vulnerability on her ability in a future software. Update in the meantime apple suggests that concerned users shut off series access to the mail APP in the series suggestions and privacy section of settings since and in Mac Os Catalina. You can avoid giving apps full disk access as well. And of course turning on file woodwork. Turn on fallible. Let's let's just put that one right up up front like there could be a really good reason. Why you don't want filed on in which case these other mitigation efforts there but the easy answer is turn on fire file? Lyle volt also. This is not something that most people are going to have to worry about. It's very specific attack. I was curious. Alison because on on the security dirty bits part of the no silicosis podcast you have nice. Rankings that Bart brings you ranking. You think Bart would give this well. It would be probably in the I know. Fire Extinguisher. Category unnecessary just because it is going to be. Pretty narrow that you have to be encrypting your email wanting to keep that encrypted. Obviously you have to have somebody get ahold of your machine and not be running. File Vault I think if you've got encrypted maleter if you're running encrypted male you're probably running file volt too and if anybody followed one hundred years ago when it first came out and it was big fat pain Dory but it now you click a button and you okay on with your business you. It's no brainer fast. And it doesn't impact you at all. Yeah if anything that the best part of this story is getting that word out there to people who might not have gotten back around to turning on file on an older machine gene so you have that encrypted access it this is also I always call these an example of of good security research. A security researcher found a thing. Yeah Yeah Apple took a little longer to respond to this. Then maybe they should have but it's also not super high risk and they are going to address it so I you know I think I think all in all this is this is good news that the the folks that you want to find these things found this one which is good. I did the shocking part. Is that apple responded to the verge. That apple actually spoke to the verge about it. Yeah that's a good point. Yeah I don't know how that happened. That was a slip up. The satellite startup. Kepler has demonstrated delivering broadband speeds of thirty eight megabits per second down and one hundred twenty megabits per second up different kinds of asynchronous Internet to a German icebreaker sea vessel stationed in the Arctic serving as a mobile lab for the Mosaic Research. Expedition using to low Earth Orbit Nanno satellites that are on a polar polar orbital trajectory. coupler was able to allow researchers in the mosaic team to transfer large amounts of data to shore based research stations from the ship. So this wasn't just a proof of concept they were actually transferring data. Something they really needed to be able to do. The speeds are significant. Jump over spotty and slower traditional satellite based broadband previously used for this kind of situation and both Poles are going to benefit. We had area Waldman on not too long ago talking about the Antarctic station and the the slow Internet access that they have. This will help improve that for our future people going into Antarctica's well that is crazy cool and it really has been very limited handed as as you mentioned Tom when aerial was was visiting US couple weeks ago in a she. She'd had a wonderful time. But said you know the Internet. Ah Issue is is. It's tough it's tough for scientists. It's tough for people who are in the media Ed's tougher you know anybody who's who's in in the region this is great And and since I saw a video of a Beluga Whale plane fetch people off a boat in the Arctic yesterday on the Internet and I put on twitter's one of the greatest things I've ever percents. I now want to go to the Arctic. Because I know my Internet is going to be a little bit better. I don't think enough people know that. You know SPACEX SPACEX gets all the attention for this and maybe you know the Jeff bezos is also involved in a project like this but there are multiple projects and Kepler is one of them To to to provide this kind of blanketed Internet and I wouldn't be too shocked if within the next five years the ability or at least the capability of getting decent broadband broadband everywhere on the planet. Just like you can if you if you have a satellite phone you can get a phone connection almost anywhere on the planet Just cost you money and you have to have the equipment. We may be getting there with Internet seeded. First Kepler's part of NASA is every. No this is not there. There's other Kepler okay. Because yeah because I did a search for Kepler just now because I hadn't actually heard of them. The kepler space telescope is the one. That's part of NASA okay. There's also Brian. brushwood dog is named Keppler. Don't because I know you know doctor. A named after technology program Dan O'Brien restaurants Doug while a great dog did not provide satellite Internet at these events. Could he man the police there you want to get all the tech headlines. Each date about five minutes be sure to subscribe to daily tech headlines Dot Com. So Allison listen and I were talking about what to talk about today. Show and Allison you were having a conversation with someone about annual operating system updates in how whether whether it's your phone android or whether it's your desktop windows or Mac os when a new operating system update comes. It's it's totally expected expected that everyone is going to complain about stuff and the only question is is the amount of complaining actually more this time or not right. Well Yeah Yeah it was a re Robertson and I were talking about this because I'm the kind of person who loves the new shiny I will. I remember back in the blackberry days loading three applications onto my blackberry at at a stop light once I just I just love absent I love. I love installing everything but the latest updates from apple the latest operating systems have been just a little tiny bit rocky for me. Just run into major problems here and there and he started questioning. Do we really need to have have annual big giant operating system updates. Is that really something that we need. I mean we're being feted because we want it because we want the new shiny but is that actually actually disruptive or helpful would we learn more about the operating system what it can do it was just stable for two years. That was kind of his question and just to be clear to everybody listening listening we are not talking about security updates. Of course we want security updates on a regular schedule. Patching security vulnerabilities as fast as possible. That that that's fine. That's not what's here. What we're talking about is hey that new may twenty nine windows? Update is here. I better upgrade to get the newest features features or Mac. Os Catalina here better upgrade to get the newest features Iowa's thirteen android ten et Cetera et Cetera et Cetera. So I I would say my gut my gut reaction to that is well. Then don't you know. And I'm sitting here with a machine to my left. That's on Mac. Os S. Catalina. A windows machine. There that is on the May twenty nine thousand nine update a Mac. Os in front of me. That I'm streaming most of my stuff from that's on high. Sierra Sierra and the reason that was on high Sierra is that it worked from the moment I got high Sierra. I WANNA mess with it so I have not updated. It's still get security patches right if we get to a point where they're like we can't get a security patches that anymore then we've got a problem but you you don't need to update to the new shiny ninety if you don't want to our mutual friend. Dorothy does that she was just telling me today that she upgrades every other Mac operating system So but she thinks she's probably going to do two in a row this time which I I'm not sure I understand since Catalina has been just we rough around the edges here The thing I think about is I really D- I'm totally bought it. Yes every other year. Don't give us these big feature updates every year because you obviously. You can't do it in any kind of equality whatsoever but I want to pick and choose which updates actually were the ones I wanted like if they didn't give me continuity for example the ability to Do a copy on my Mac and paste over on my ipad that sort of thing or take photos with my phone that go instantly into a document on my on my Mac I I live on that stuff. I love that stuff so not that update okay. Dark Mode and don't care about dark motorboats dark modes for suckers as Adema banks from south Kinda then but you know it. But that's the point. Right is the ones that are really important for For Sarah are not the ones that are important for me right and the ones that are not the ones that report for you. So which ones would we not have. Well I mean that's the cost benefit analysis assists and. It's in your hands right I. It's interesting because I think about it from the perspective of an IT administrator and we have tons of uses edmonds out there and the fact that we have problems where companies were still running on x. p. where companies are still running on windows seven is because of the other end of this the extreme end of like yes this works and I mess with it. I don't care if you get some new fund feature I want us what stable and works with our Internet and runs owns everything and is bulletproof. And that's kind of how I feel about my production machine myself on the. This is not something that you're going to upgrade to Catalina. Because you're like nope too. Many any things are going to break and I can attest that they will. They did for me when I upgraded to Catalina. But I'm kind of with you Alison I. I want the newest version of everything thing you know. Because it's like you know if security update that's one thing but if it's sort of new features and new bells and whistles that don't really need but at least I can play around with. I always always do want that. But the more incremental updates one would think would be just kinda at least faster to grade all the update all the time not always the case and for work. What we do? You can't have your computer down for forty five minutes depending on the time of day. I mean it'll ruin everything so I kind of find that sometimes I wish I was back at the yearly update type situation which is a bad idea and I know that but it would it. Would it would require for me to have to go pay around that living room watching where progress bar all that much less. So one of the things they've done at least in the world that makes says even harder. Is You pretty much have to upgrade when I was comes out I mean Nag level and you can't just stay back version I. It's very you you have to work harder at it. You're right there's a lot of F so I went to Iowa's thirteen which dumpster fire has been a big problem for me especially on the IPAD. Ed and I did not heed the warning that said if you do this update and you say upgrade to my reminders. It's going to break reminders. Over on your Mac I mean it was super obvious. It was in big letters. They were read. They were like twenty eight point fun and I went. Oh I'm sure it'll be fine and I clicked through and I lost reminders. On my Mac will until I went to Catalina China. I didn't have reminders anymore. I use reminders. All the time so I actually did go to Catalina my production machine now my life does not come to an end. I mean mentally I would come to you and if it didn't work but I wouldn't. I wouldn't Miss House payment if it didn't work sure So they they've tied them together enough. Now that you SORTA gotTa keep moving with the MAC operating system. I don't know that you have that problem windows. I wonder if it would be better. Given the amount of people who have problems with both the May two thousand nineteen update certainly with the October which was really November update of two thousand eighteen on windows and the Catalina if companies. You know lightened off the accelerator. Maybe maybe maybe we go back to longer release between member. We used to go like three years with a service pack between windows versions. So maybe it doesn't have to go that far but maybe fewer features maybe they're trying to push too many features into these updates. I understand that they want to keep their operating systems seeming fresh. They WanNa make people feel like when they buy a new computer that they're getting new cool things that they. I didn't have on their old computer. If they didn't upgrade to the brand new version of the operating system. I understand that apple has a different way of doing it and wanting to make you feel like you always have a new thing from them because you're updating the operating system but it is definitely in both cases windows and Mac starting to cause people to get frustrated because everytime you upgrade an operating system things are not going to work and it seems like more things are not working each time in Catalina people lost male and with the latest one of those two you updates to To windows people lost data so these these are minor inconveniences. Those are those are catastrophic kind of problems. They're not just oh you know. Oh my driver for my scanner. Does it work anymore. They're getting big. They're getting getting worse. And I had a phone Chris Ashley to find out exactly what ahead gone on with windows and it was interesting because he says well at Microsoft doesn't do big annual updates. Oh sure they have the fall in the spring update and yeah those were catastrophic and is it okay so apple and windows and Microsoft through totally different paths but they end up in the same place. Microsoft's breaks it up into two halves of the year ANDROID and MAC OS. I'll do it once a year and they're all of them will add features from time to time in an update Affect Apple has done that quite a bit more this time around with delaying features and not adding them until a later update which implies to me that. They're just not ready to do these things. Maybe maybe there's just a better way of packaging em up then forcing them into a yearly update. I don't know they were also in an interesting position. Maybe this is part of what drives it. Every years they were coming out with the IPHONE. Eleven with some amazing new camera features and so they had to have the operating system. Come out at the same time as the phone or else you would have gotten the phone. We'll wait a minute. What did I pay for this Ford and do anything? So that forces the update update is over here forcing the Catalina update and everybody goes when the whistle blows and by the way we got another yet another update to Iowa thirteen today. Yeah no I've the one thing. I really have problems with the OS updates from from apple. This time around. But I have had a problem with keeping up with them. Because I'm like really I got this machine again. My Gosh Yeah Yeah for me yesterday. ooh That's that's catastrophic doesn't break anything that would be the people in our separate.

Happening all the time you joined by linking to a Patriot account at Patriot dot com slash. DT Ns. Let's check out the mail bag. got a good wooden from Netanyahu. Also send US video. The kind of goes with the with the email for all your video folks. Nathaniel said. We received a Cadillac paper catalog in the mail from Amazon today for holiday shopping. Looks like they're trying to revive the experience of kids flipping through that catalog circling their dream items taping pages to the fridge. Arguing about which Toya's best nathaniel says. I think it's a great idea especially with sticker pages and a built in wishlist also. He knows that his Catt grizzly seemed curious but not enough to get off the couch. Video of Grizzly reviewing the Amazon grisly grisly was purring and Kinda Chirpy. And so she seems okay with it. It's I don't want any. I don't want Amazon D- do not send me anything in the mail. Are they going to look back on the Amazon catalog the way we look back on the J. C. Penney wishlist and the sears catalog. And all that. I don't know I don't know I I just oh I don't feel like they even know what it sort of. It's almost for parents or adults. I suppose in a I like a catalogue no flip through my West Elms and by the various stuff that comes to me even though I never signed up for it kind of thing. Don't WanNa think from Amazon though just feels a little backwards. There is a thing in the video. The grizzly send us Where you can ride right out the things that you want so it seems like it's aimed at kids for that reason And then Komai wrote in and said I'm worried about privacy in general but facebook Google Amazon or not my biggest biggest concern I care about net neutrality as much as privacy and I'm more worried the ISP DNS servers all the sites. We visit. That's why I use other. DNS DNS. And I'm bothered by the monopoly and lack of ISP choices. I wonder why we don't hear. News about net neutrality anymore. One of the reasons we don't hear about net neutrality anymore because there's not a government fight for it that's been settled by the FCC for the time being the court cases are not maturing so as soon as some of these court workplaces come to decisions. We'll start to hear more about that and there are still a few of them that have been decided and there have been violations yet so as soon as somebody is caught hot doing something that would have violated net neutrality. That's legal now. That'll become a big story but we're kind of in a period where none of that is happening. So that's that's why we're not hearing a lot about it isn't said there isn't any net neutrality would have been well but that would be news right if there were violations about neutrality. That would you don't think buzzfeed would be bringing in the clicks on every day vice motherboard. That I'll be doing that.

26: Blazing Chrome, Oninaki, Octopath Traveler and Fortnite World Cup

"The welcome to this week video game step episode twenty six Tom Casual and this podcast all about the world of video games this week been playing through glazing chrome on a Nike and author of traveling in the news this week I four night World Cup. Listen progress this weekend with British players in the mix for the thirty million dollars for grabs. I've watched reveals a new hero and we'll take a look inside the game as brain with neuroscientist. Celia Hodan says packed week. Let's get into it. Welcome to the show everyone. I hope you're well and you're having a good week. I'm good this week haven't been home and pet some quality time home with my parents Dan by the sea and getting out the city having a little bit of a break of the hectic lifestyle. It's also been super hot this week with record-breaking temperatures here in London and Thursday we saw the hottest day since records began and I wonder when people say that when the records created kind of in that long ago because they always seem to be broken anyways super hot this week and it's always funny in the U._k.. Because normally were a cool damp country we're known for our rain. We're known for umbrellas and when it gets too hot to code everything seems to shut down with the train tracks literally melting in their beds and bending in the heat and there's travel travel chaos. There was a huge lightning storm that followed the heat with shut down a lot of the major airports in the U._K. and fair enough. I don't think I'd WANNA be flying in the lightning either super hot this week. I up that several look in plain in this week so it's been a good week of gaming this week as I've got my hands on blazing crown a new running gun shooter that pays homage to Contra from the mid nineties so I'll take a liquor review of that later on and on Inaki also released just a demo this week and this is a game. I wasn't too sure about before but now since I've played the Demo I'm really excited about it and can't wait for the full release to pair with on Inaki. I play through octopus traveler on Nintendo switch this week and it's something I picked up launch but I put down again however due to on a Nike put me in the mood for some J. R._p._G.. Action and I ended up octopus traveler and mostly enjoy my time with it but more about that in the review later on also checked out a new documentary on Netflix this week called the great hack which is all about the Cambridge analytic scandal and more on that later on the show the first up. Let's take a look at the demo. Reincarnation reincarnation is the foundation of our way of knife. We celebrate the lines. We've been given ind offer prayers for the next you to grief of death which chuckles living gene causes the dentistry indeed there is no great roof front to reincarnation so we turn our grief to joy as we send off the dead but the souls of those who held back their tears in life still need salvation in death but duties it falls to the watchers the watchers sever the bones the tie the most too so on an Aki is an action action R._p._G.. From Tokyo R._P._G.. Factory developers of I._M.. Set sooner and loss fear and it's published by Square Knicks.

I played through there like I said before I wasn't sure about this game before but now played the demo. I'm really excited for the game and I'm looking forward to always twenty-second when the game comes out the game play is super. Fun is kind of talk down you bow a number of enemies as you see in the demo game. Play play throws you up against the boss in the first twenty five minutes and the boss battles are really really good in the game players well we can switch between the kind of the world of the living and the world of the dead as well. It's a really interesting mechanic and the game as well doesn't shy nine from kind of hard topics deals with death and reincarnation and the idea of the watchers really kind of grab my attention. I'm looking forward to this. One on an Aki superfund really really enjoyed it and there's a Free Democrat on P._C.. And intended switch going download that demo right now next up. Let's take a look at blazing chrome. mm-hmm doc plays in chrome is a run gun to decide scrolling shooter this an Indie Love Letter to the likes of Contra. Another Economic Games of the sixteen era so blazing chrome is out on Nintendo switch xbox. It's one P._S.. Four and it's a whole lot of fun it pays homage to the Contra series that clearly inspired this game with everything from the Great Sixteen Bit Graphics Excellent Music and the feel of the game at the core is the true running gun gameplay in play it charged through levels with machine-guns that can unlimited amount bullets Iran jump shoot go prone you can also stick to one position and shoe in multiple directions allowing you to clear out the many oncoming enemies you start out with a simple machine gun and you work your way through levels picking up new gear on the way with the likes of grenade launchers laser whips and a vast array of guns. You can use to help to Klay Your path. There's a good amount of variety in blazing crime in terms of terrain the after cross cross set pieces. You have to face equipment that you can use the level was buried in that design as whereas the orientation to one minute you'll be running through futuristic warehouse shirt and your way to safety next minute you'll be jumping up platforms dangled ropes and other climbing apparatus and gunning down enemies from above you can help into Mexico which looked like something out of robocop giving you the extra damage boost that you need the game certainly offers EPA challenge to you. Start out a level with five five lives in anything that touches you and you're dead in true mid-nineties Tom. If you lose your lives you'd be sent back to the last checkpoint allowing you to learn and master the oncoming levels. It's not easy. It's always fun and it gives you that sense of wanting to see the next crazy. Easy setpiece huge robots crashed the background. Try shoot you with delays vision massive alien one slugs birth through the sand you get the idea fantastic over the top big sec pieces and bosses were trademark of Contra blazing chrome does not disappoint on this either. The story is pretty straightforward. Militant fueled computers roll the earth while humans are expendable and I can power prestige status among the machine overlords you choose to players Lions Maverick the human resistant soldier or doyle the insurgent robot partner resistance. It's your job to drop behind enemy lines on a suspected suicide mission. The stories big brash silly and perfect reminds me Vanni films in the mid nineties total recall Predator silly but in the best possible way blazing chrome feels true to the ear it pays tribute to through the Artwork Sixteen Bit Star went land backgrounds and paradox designs give sense of movement and depth the game is designed in a four twenty seven by two forty resolution which is the same size of retro consoles. It's based on the developers also took the limitations the retro platforms into consideration with the color palettes this joy masher restricted colors to stay true to the design of the time music in the game has been bostick and goes great graphics the over the top story the game is Great. Fun is available on multiple platforms and a reasonable price and could be considered fitted as the contra sequel that we never got if you recently picked up the contract anniversary collection and that left you wanting more than this is an ideal purchase for you. The game is challenging is tough and it will be most of the time but the mastery three to achieve here is very very satisfying. Throw in the big both set pieces the Mech soups and the variety of levels than you've got a very entertaining game in your hands. I knew little of blazing chrome or joy masher before the game. I was left with a really good impression. This is a studio who clearly as a passion to Retro Inspired Games in the execution. Here is a grade at a lot of fun with blazing chrome. Recommend picking it up. I played the game on P._C.. Is Available on platforms right now now so the game as I mentioned was development. Join Master is available on P._C.. Switch xbox One and P._S.. Four and it was originally released on the eleventh of July Twenty nineteen. I gave the game a final school of eighty-one thanks to joy master who provided this week in video games with the Review Code for the P._C.. So thank you joy metro. What did you think did you play blazing krone? Are you a fan of mid-nineties running gun games. Send me an email on poke caster this week in video games dot com or tweet me at T._W._a.. I._V. Not podcast on twitter well. That's it for blazing chrome next up. Let's take a look octo path traveller in the far away Vorster each travelers venture forth step into their shoes and explore the room as you see fit eight briefs Oils each will unique talent it lands aid stories to tell me friend one pass. Will you tread a man like knows only the battlefield worth only as much as the blade my side the arm that swingset when that Blake fails to save my sworn leverage. Does that make me. I remember forget three men. Foul scavengers just like the burt was mark they bear they took my father from me and I will never forget Oktay. Travel is an hour after the sixteen year of Japanese. R._P._G.'s Brits released released on Modern Consoles and P._C.. It's a tribute to find fancy six and colonel trigger and look and feel but he's got a new original and unique story up to travel you pay through eight stories with a cast of characters though these characters do occasionally meet each other in their stories. They're independent another set in the land of Australia. We journey with the travelers to uncover story and so mysteries. The characters are fear a cleric of the sacred flame. Who's pilgrimage things are into conflict with the color it by matteis highest cyrus a scholar and teacher the moral academy seeking missing tomb of the dark arts from the Far East of hell that was stolen by the headmaster? Yvonne man is assistant this year. We've got tresser. Emergency goes on a journey after acquiring a journal Arno detaining a past adventures travels all brick a former night of the Kingdom of Hornbook seeking purpose for kingdom was destroyed by attack by cell source named Verner Primrose at dancer and former noble seeking revenge against the OBSIDIAN citizens a criminal organization that murder Father Alphand traveling salesman news taken up trade after a stranger saved him from fatal disease as a child. We've got theory on a thief task by Noble Family to recover dragon stones belong into them and Hannett Hunter tracking the monster Redeye after it petrified her mentor so each character's interesting entertaining and it's got four chapters to their story on applying through of your second character you're likely to notice a certain similarity. Hey between the one the played last and therein lies on the main issues are found without traveler the stories themselves they contain different backstories but you feel like you're stuck in a groundhog day and plan through the same set-pieces over and over the stories themselves constraining and varied albeit feel something we've may have encountered before as familiar feel without being to original. It's a shame that the stories that interact war or the characters that after team up in some kind of ultimate alliance two faced off the grand beat bad had there seems to be a missing piece puzzle in the game. Perhaps the door is being left open for Future D._R._C.. That seems to make sense to bring all these disparate stories together the Game Plan Octopus travelers great fun and it brings his own unique take on battling elaine his genre in similar games term based combat here too but the game throws in the brake system which requires timing and skill as well as knowledge of your character abilities is a good amount variety found in the battles buying covering and learning enemy witnesses witnesses and deploying your main heroes abilities and skills to ultimately defeat your foes tinker an experiment to break your enemies defense now uncover methods inflicting huge amount of damage to enemies and bosses also elementary attacks and damage Brennan's too so there's lots to learn in the combination of attacks. The battle system is fun with nice variations however I did find myself switching off a little when playing through wanting to get through to the next level as the combat or fell into feeling Kabeer for grind I wanted to get to the next step to find out what was going to happen. The battling start to feel a little bit repetitive. The boss battles offer a challenge but the endless surprise attacks from lowly enemies turned battling into a tool rather than the pleasure came from one section to another felt like work sections have recommended levels and if you're not to the level and damaging enemies is going to be tough the only way to gap to the level is to grind your way to said level and this definitely influenced my feeling of repetition petition and found unnecessary gate to get passed in the game would have liked more progression building up to these levels and the game bring me along with it rather than force me to go back and repeat content as well as the balance of exploration traveling no no no pun intended the side quests in the game the landscape gorgeous from the snowy mountains and the different villages filled with rich and poor he caves and Forests Wildlife. There's no shortage of environments and different places to visit the map is pretty big to opening up as you collect different travelers along the way side quests can be fairly straightforward. You're going to get this item for someone in the forest or you find this long lost family member and these quests help fill in the detail of the world with the M._p._c. they do feel quite surface level and don't go into deep leaving me wanting more the scientists onto rewarding either with mainly just money or simple items it feels like a slightly missed opportunity to have a deeper connection with the world and a more well rewarding experience both in the story and rewarding for you as the player to pair with side quests this dungeons and other places to hunt enemies and gather loop when he first look traveler it mail it like a mid nineties J._r. p._G.. The game is character sprite. Bright based but the surrounding environments beautiful tilt shifted and almost dioramas now wonderfully crafted and flow of subtle movement and details the spot characters are two d. but they live in travel in Three D.. World with painted textures altogether is one of the best looking games out there on Nintendo switch and the environments they vary and so does the texture and a graphical elements to support the falling snowflakes the rain the wind and the sand in the desert's the scores the game is also a masterpiece orchestral full of emotion and Sore Enduring Battles and tribes the lightning in the game is great and asks the mystery and the wonder as light streams in through the windows and the glades in the forest bringing subtle hazy affects x. into the game. It's absolutely gorgeous octopus travel. It's a great throwback to the Jerry R._p._G.'s of the mid nineties but with among twist the game a looks amazing and if you liked the P._g.. Former then you're going to enjoy this game for for me. It felt quite repetitive and grind -I and overall the story didn't come together in a way that I feel like it should gameplay graphics and music and really good fun. The grinding nature was a bit of a turnoff still one of the Best J. R._p._G.'s out there for Nintendo switch and so if you like that sort of thing I recommend giving it a go. The game was developed square. Nixon is available now for Nintendo Switchmen P._C.. It was originally released on Switch on June thirteenth twenty eighteen and June seven twenty nine thousand nine for P._C..

Grab a drink and stay off the lawn. This is the man league. Welcome everybody back to the old man league. This is episode number seven and as always I am Mike and I'm here with my man Lee. Everybody still alive still alive. Ben a minute pull its life. I mean we both had life kind of get in the way over the last month or so and really no excuse. But we're back. We've been through a whole life cycle of Antonio Brown. Oh my God oh. I forgot about that the last time they actually recorded he was with the raiders and turns out he's not the NFL anymore. So I didn't even think about that. Actually two of the people that we joked about the raiders are no longer technically with the raiders. I guess about that. Yeah perfect still technically is but come on incognito. Let's make it happen anyway. We're back happy to be back and we are going to do our best to stay back on schedule. So I miss talking to you buddy you too and it's all this our favorite time of year. We haven't been together. That's true and actually that works out really well and it's an excellent segue because now we're right in a good time for fall beers so it's acceptable for me to drink something darker. Yes yes it is what you got tonight. I am drinking from one zero five West Brewery here in Colorado. And it's called these nuts. It's peanut butter and Hazelnut Ale so it's not a new the Tele Action Dude. It's so good it's so good. Yeah get you some awesome. Yeah I went so I've actually not been drinking during the week trying to be a good human being but I had to break my fast for tonight. So I'm going with to me. The the King of all ears pumping by southern tier. I love it. Man It's so good. Eight point six nice get you warmed up. It's finally fall in Maryland so it just feels right. That's one of my favorites. I had the Nitro version which I try to over the weekend and not as good so stick to the original. You know what I'm finding with. Nitro news is that I enjoy them so much more when they come from the tap that when I when I buy them you know what I mean. Yeah but at least with the problems I saw was it loses some of its flavor and I don't. This is a beer. I don't WANNA LOSE FLAVOR TO GET NITRO so I'll stick with the original and be just fine. I mean so like basic white girl season. So what is it called? When guys like us can enjoy Pumpkin Beers pumpkin spice season. I have no shame I've got. I've got muffins. Candy Corn Coffee Beer. You name it. I've got it in Pumpkin spice and I don't feel bad. Come at me okay. So I'm with you on a percent and my friends. Tease me even when we go to starbucks 'cause I love me some PSL. I'm not. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I don't go to starbucks all year except for fall and winter so I'll get what they have in the fall and now the gingerbread lots which I don't even like gingerbread but something about that I'll spend six dollars on coffee once in a while. I love look at that right off the bat awesome. So yeah like I said it's been a minute but we're back where sponsored by our our good friends at tailgate. Three sixty five. Check them out at tailgate. Three sixty five. They're going to be revamping and doing some more content. When I say they I need 'cause it's our site and a group that I'm very proud to be a part of but it's not just me. It's Sundial high other tailgating group in Colorado and we're going to get into that a little bit more later but you can catch us on the social at sons of mile high gets an exciting things to talk about this year awesome. You can find us. Hopefully we still exist. After our hiatus we're at the old man league dot com or you can find us on all of the social at the manly and of course you can call or text us at seventeen zero four three three six seven four and we do have quite a few voicemails and texts. I've not even bother looking at the dates because it doesn't matter at this point but they're gonNA get played in red clear out the closet. I mean it should be actually Kinda Fun. It's going through a fucking time capsule at this point. Oh good good. Good all right so our sports here. Yeah our favorite sport is here even though you know I mean it's still your favorite. It's still my favorites. I'm enjoying it for other reasons and I'm not falling into the goal of our our last win. But you know it is what it is. It's football's back. It's it's been a unite. Were talking the other day. It's been an interesting season for a lot of different factors. I guess yeah I mean what's what's one thing that stands out to you this season so far. What's got your I M Y? What has my is that. It's it seems like there's a lot kind of going against the grain you know we talked a lot. I think it may have even been our last episode we talked about. Oh you know Cleveland is going to dominate. And they're just they've got a lot of holes and they're not look I mean. Baker is not looking great at all. You know the. There's a lot of guys that have stepped in for injured starting quarterbacks and then there's a lot of third string quarterbacks that have stepped in for injured second-string quarterbacks and in some cases it's working out like you look at Minhsiu. I thought foles is GonNa do really well in Jacksonville. Misuse tearing it up so to me. It's just there's a lot of a lot of things I thought at the beginning that I'm not so sure of anymore including the other night. The colts taken it to the chiefs. Schumer boy I mean did they. Show us the blueprint. Do you think I came to you with that initial while moment and you kinda backed me off and look injuries and his ankle. I'm not yes I think it's because they they came out that night and I said we're going to run the ball down our throats and it worked. You know the Ravens tried it last year but they had to get away from it because you just can't stop them from scoring fifty that doesn't work and for them at work and the thing is they were losing. Db's I mean they were. Even the colts were banged up and they somehow slow the train down enough to get it done yet. Worked AND KANSAS. City's banged up now and it makes me think you know yeah. They're really injured. And that was a huge factor. But they're defensive line was questionable at best and then they just lost their best D. Lineman and I'll admit I've said it before I'm a Mahomes Fan. I like the guy. But he's not the same when you take away even a little bit of his mobility and it showed bigger than shit this last Sunday right so so fine to me. Believe me. It's fine with me too. You can keep that up. You know a week from tomorrow. That's fine by me. What about you what are you? What are you feeling from this year? So far I I like that. Some of the teams like okay. I have no attention to the forty niners. I think it's pretty damn cool that they're doing what they're doing at some of these legacy teams like the bills foreign one. I mean that's they're still chasing the Patriots but it's just just to see some different things happening I mean the AFC North as shit show AFC south. We thought to one year. I didn't think Texas we'RE GONNA win the division and the culture outnumber set comes in does what he does so. I think it's it's nice to see some refreshing names and talent and different things happening. I mean even the to your point. You know watching the Ravens steelers game. When we I think we saw Mason Rudolph soul leave his body. David third-string guy from San I in Alabama come in and he doesn't miss a beat and it's like these no name guys are just they're doing it and it's just something different now we've been. We've been blessed you and I have come up in the golden era of football quarterbacking but at some point. Okay can we do something different now and get a dose of in Baltimore Jackson but just give me something new some new battles the same teams in the top of divisions? But it's been some good moments it gets old. I mean I'm sure when your team is not old but it's like a little parody doesn't hurt you know that's the one thing that I honestly Eh. One thing that I will always love about hockey is every year is different. And even though there's always like one or two good teams when it becomes playoff time. Anything can happen literally and lightning last year. It was bigger than Shit right. Didn't we like three one seed? Go down or something like right was it was crazy and you know as much as I love basketball in the NBA. That's a turnoff. Because you hate seeing the Super Team. It's like the. Nfl is sort of getting that way with the Patriots. It's I just WanNa see somebody else. Something different when my team blows? I WanNa see just good other football when I'm watching it and and this year has been pretty damn entertaining honest right now. Even that I got the Skins Patriots game here on Sunday and that first quarter quarter and a half. They were putting them. I mean you the Patriots were. They were shook. So maybe we start to see the cracks and Antonio Brown is now. He's on twitter today. Begging follower to get in touch with the Patriots and tell them to bring me back is all that the guy's a clown but I've said it in our discord he. He needs professional help. I mean he's not he's not mentally okay he's clearly just reaching out for something because he's attitudes. Yeah I feel for him. He's gotTa get something something fixed up top because it's not clicking on all cylinders it's not while that's it puts in perspective how long it's been because we were talking about the raiders. We're making our predictions and we both said it's a matter of time before it blows up and and so far we're we're right player wise although they're not you know oddly. I think it's made the team come together a little bit. Oh yeah they're fired up and gone so good. That sounds good fucking scumbag though like you know I would never wish injury on anybody but if I watched that guy like shred both of his knees on live TV. I wouldn't even have an ounce of sympathy because he is that big of a piece of shit. Yup and I couldn't believe it I've heard at least two or three. The talking heads defending him. Yeah let that set at. Your silence speaks volumes. I actually read something that they were complaining that he was being targeted. It's like really okay. Well you kind of earned that bud if a if a player suspended and double digit numbers. He's not a victim. No I'm sorry is not to touch on something. I honest to God when Mason. Rudolph went like unconscious in while he was vertical and he just laid there. There's a I know you said this honor discord. There was a part of me that I thought to myself. I just watched a man die on national. Tv during a football game. Like He. I think I could have just been seeing shit but I thought I saw his hand twitch it did his right hand was just he lost a nurse control and it just went straight and it was. I. I wasn't joking I really. I thought potentially that it was over. I mean the way he went down it was it wasn't that hard of a hit at least didn't look like. I mean he did slamming his head on the terrorist. But when you hit the front I mean it was a solid shot but nothing that I would have expected that the lights went out. I think it just caught him right on the gym at the right spot. I hope he's okay because that shit was hair re yeah. He went home that night but he needs a little time off. Well Okay and so this actually brings up Elsa so first of all what the fuck is going on in Pittsburgh did their carts networking and this poor fuckers. GotTa try to walk off the field. Oh but then they even said there's a backup car on the other side. He didn't need it. I will do the same thing. Yes and the. Nfl came out later and said that he didn't need it. Did you see that? Come on? Yeah I know where he was. Oh if you can't physically walk off the field by yourself. You should be on a car. If you're going straight to the hospital you should be on a car or at least at least go back to the old man game really ambulance out run through about fifteen steelers and pick the boy up or put him on a Goddamn sled and slide. 'em offer something. I mean I don't know that to me if I'm if I'm anybody that's ever had a head injury in the NFL exhibit aid. You know what I mean. That's that's you're covering my medical for the rest of my life because Shit like this unbelievable. Hey we one. Yeah you switch back third string quarterback but we did it. You went into your. We're about to lose to Stanford quarterback and then you guys won. I thought this okay. Unless you're right here I think if there was any other field besides Heinz field but that wind Tucker's kick misses that thing that the English on that kick he doesn't. He doesn't Hook kicks. So I was sweating with last-second wasn't even cheer after the game. It was just Kinda really mine was a cheer but it was also like a you know. Yom Happy but still you know it it. It's a win is a win. At least we at least we WANNA fucking game. Finally I will say this. Amazingly FLACCO is not our problem not even close. He's not even like top ten of our problems. He's actually pretty steady for us. And it's we've got so many problems but you know they seem like they're growing in certain areas in our problem is we're sending an IRA every week. So that's not gonNA work out real well. So what about the other candidate? Nfl The kind where we pick players and root for them. I'm so we switched it up this year. We do have our old man league fantasy league traditional foreign one. Thank you very much. I gotTa if you knew that yes I had to defense in and on I should be eating you handily. So yeah so honest so we switched my league that I've had for fifteen years. This is the first time I could not get everyone together. And we have one role you have to draft your own team. We just couldn't do it so I thought okay we're GONNA try to handle and I had some people that were. I don't WanNa do something new. Then we got on. I love it. I don't know how you felt about it. I know you've been Fan Dole player for a long time but this is your first time doing a league. I think right yeah. I'm having a blast with it. Honestly it's it's as much as I miss a traditional league. It's a nice way to mix it up honestly because I'm in three. Other leagues in years would have been the fourth and sometimes there's a lot to manage so for me. It was a nice mix up. I like it. I like to have a different perspective. Sometimes I can get McCaffrey and cheer him on Wednesday scoring six touchdowns whereas I probably wouldn't have him under a regular league so it's I'm getting a root for different guys and it. Drains draws me into different parts of different games. That I really wouldn't care about an most circumstances. So you're you're in first place am I had no idea. See your six hundred sixty six points. Six forty five. I'm on your heels. Abed the thing. I like about vandal. Honestly is I get like a certain amount of satisfaction from picking the guy that was like super affordable but like sort of like not not diamond in the rap is probably the wrong way to put it but he was affordable and sort of a steel and then he goes off. I love it when we have. Those moments will fuller. Oh my God did you have him no no. I didn't know I agree. Though when you get the guy was like five thousand fifty five hundred and he he drops one hundred and a couple of touchdowns. Yeah that feels good now. I say that as I'm actually a McCaffrey owner in the in two leagues. 'cause they keep relief I drafted him like last year. So beautiful feeling good about that. That little that little fuckers carrying me so fun in one Lee You'll you'll really like this in one league so I drafted him last year wait. I drafted him the year before last in the third round because he was a rookie and then I kept him last year. And I gotTa keep him again this year and this year he only cost me a second based on the keepers so in the first round. I drafted tomorrow so I have those two and so far. It's been like okay but I'm waiting for that. One of pop off. Yeah he Marston quiet. Mary quiet breeze thing although bridgewater's actually looking for dude he I love him he really does deserve his own team because he's just been one thing after another but he's showing he can get it done. I mean it don't have ingram anymore and I think that's that one two punches isn't quite the same so yeah but it's their trinkets rolling. Yeah it's a nice. I thought that I thought Murray might do more there. But so far. It's just it's just different. Yeah Yeah I mean you're not putting a ton of points up. I think they're tone differentials. One point or scoreboard has given up. But they're undefeated home. So they're they're still doing what they do with the dome. Yeah we'll see how this goes. I don't I probably don't have much of a chance for you in the old man league. 'cause you're putting up some points. I think we're tied right now and I gotta put a defense end so I find a good one three and two. We're in different divisions at least so right so yeah we'll keep calm at so all right now. This is really exciting. So I've been listening to you talk about the tailgate all the time so on me. What do you got me? I heard the rumors. I'm here what's going on out there and Snowy Colorado Dude almost eighty today. We're expecting snow tomorrow. So this year has been unbelievable for tailgating. We sons of high is is our little group and probably like twenty fifteen or so. And that's when we branded it and it's been kind of growing this year has just exploded. I mean we've had no less than you know at least two hundred people at everything tailgate. We've had some pretty amazing partnerships that started this year. These aren't just plugged by the way they're sort of plug but they're also kinda cool. A company called tailgate connected me up in the off season. The guy named Dan Super Awesome Guy. He actually came out. He flew out just to tailgate with US. For the Jaguars game. What are we going to? Weeks super. Great Guy tell get connected. They do I think of it is kind of like an AIRBNB for tailgates. They're huge in the college football world. Where they they have a lot of college tailgates that they have for all these different cities. And so it's kind of thing where you go and you say hey. I'm looking for a tailgate in Texas. And then you know they put you in touch with the biggest tailgate in Texas which is massive by the way and you you basically buy a ticket through them and then boom you go to the tailgate show receipt and you're GONNA go so they've been really cool. They've sent us some a lot of things because they work with different companies and sponsors to kind of pass things onto us so for example they send us two games that have been pretty fucking cool actually three. But I'll talk about two of them because it's the leisure one of them's called Darts which I don't know if I showed you this or not but it's it sounds dangerous and it probably is but it's a hell of a lot of fun so they cornhole you're both standing with a board on either side right but each board has four holes where you put a beer right and on open beer. So there's four on open beers and then each of these boards has like these three different tiers and you take an actual dart and you throw it at the board. And then so he hit like you know the outer rings. It's like one point if you hit interesting it's like two points if you hitting puncture of beer it's three points in your opponent has to pick up the beer chugging. It was a huge hit at our last tailgate. It was so much fun. I'm waiting for somebody to catch Dr to the face. And then you know our whole operation to be shut down but in the meantime it was a lot of fun the other one that we were super excited about the people absolutely love. Is this game called Buzz? Boll and I'll links and all that crap in the show description basically. It's this table and think of it as like paper football but like elevated you remember paper football right of course. Yeah so this is something that will speak to you. Like this showed up to the tailgate. That was our age looked at this thing like they were fucking eight year old. That just got handed like you know the keys to Lego store and you know what I mean. It's they give you these nice little. So it's it's a field this table and it's got goalposts and they give you these little. Footballs that are. They're made out of leather their paper football ish but they're better built and then you basically get each side. Gets these two defender token looking things that you can place anywhere on your side? So you're basically when someone tries to flick the ball and scored Toward Jurain if it hits a defender you know an interception. Her they lose it down. I don't I don't remember the rule exactly but dude it's awesome and then when you kicked field goals they've got the goalposts huge huge hit so It honestly it really wasn't that expensive either. I looked up the pricing for the table. In the whole game it was like one hundred and fifty bucks which this table itself is rock solid so anybody looking for a real fun game. Go check them out anyway. The other super huge a partnership that we've made this year. It's it's this media group here in Denver. They used to call. Bsn Denver and they do local sports coverage they cover all the local teams. Including you know see you see us. You know podcast. They have some awesome like writers and they rebranded and they're called. Dnv are now at the D. N. B. R. DOT COM. So you know. It's probably only interesting to those that are local here but everybody here knows them. And they've partnered with US and they've been the showing up to the tailgates sponsored by Breckenridge Brewery. So that doesn't suck. It's awesome they bring Free Beer. Huge draw fireball. They've been stepping up. They send us a ton of shifts. So it's been awesome. We have to coming up this week. I actually I do a game day blog for every single home game and pretty much put in there like what. We're going to eat what you can expect for weather. You know if we have any sponsors that are going to be there who that is you can find us and I did one for the titans so if you go to sons of my high dot com you can check that out but you know this week. We're going to do barbecue. You GotTa do a little Memphis Barbecue for the titans coming to town. Were probably GONNA have a watch party in the parking lot? I'M GONNA give my tickets to buddy of mine and The wife she had a surgery. So I'm not GonNa make her. Go sit in stadium. We're going to just hang out in the parking lot for a bit. Watch the game you know. Have some drinks have a great time so anybody in the Denver Area? Come out and check us out. It's GonNa be it's GonNa be a great time in our sponsors are going to there. Oliver Games are going to be there. one thing. I'm really excited for so the titans are Sunday and the chiefs are next Thursday. I will post the details for that until Monday after the titans game so the chiefs of Thursday night game. And we're GONNA be there. I took the day off. So we can tailgate and fireball. Hit me up yesterday. Actually and I talked to today. And they're sending their sending a crew of reps out there with a bunch of giveaways and games and booze so that will on that one's GonNa be pretty fricken amazing from the sounded and the rivalry game. So you can't hate that you know no sir but Yeah Dude. Our tailgates legit. I gotTa get you out of here sometime. We have we have a bus. We have a trailer we have like three. Tv's running at all times. We have the I still use the best of times bar that we got that sucker is still and running man and we have a shot ski that we we set up on the bar and it is the shot. Ski Line is going nonstop. From the time we set up till the time we breakdown people fucking love fireball shots out of that thing so you know the the cool thing to me is. We've built such a following in such a community that we have regulars that show up every single game. We are totally. I mean legitimately. Were Free Right. You can show up and just hang out with us if you want to. We don't I'm not there to make money but we run off donations and people donate to us and we roll it into the next tailgate. Day whether that's you know buying the food and the beer for the next tailgate or you know buying a new game or buying more chairs and Shit. I mean we we literally. I've got nine to five. I don't care about any of that. We're we're doing it to improve things. And then we donate a percentage of everything that we get to the children's Hospital in Colorado so beautiful. Yeah man it's it's so much fun. I mean it's one of those things that it's a lot of work but I absolutely love what we do now. It's good because I love that. You didn't mention that yourself but I know this is the case. If you're titans fan go like you're welcome like family. You're the opposing team. You're welcome like family so your point. It's your one hundred percent right and I should have said that. But you thank you for bringing that up because I'd say we're one of the only opposing fan friendly tailgates out there where you can literally walk up you know and as long as you're not just a total dickhead. Your parter right and right opposing fans appreciate that you. You wouldn't believe the amount of emails and direct messages that I get every single week building up to a game saying hey you know. There's five of US coming from like last week. Jacksonville were a bachelor party. We're looking for a place to hang out. I found you on Google and we come hang out. I'm like yes absolutely. You know you don't have to bring Shit if you don't want to and opposing fans are always just amazing this this last week against the Jaguars actually posted on their sub reddit which read it can be a dark place sometimes right a it was so well received that they couldn't believe that the opposing fan was offering them a place to come hang out and there was no strings attached. I'm not trying to get money from anybody. I'm not trying to swindle you and bait and switch or anything I just like tailgating and meeting people and it's very humbling to me when people show up and they're excited to meet me and you know people are taking selfies with me and posting them on their own sub read it and all this other shit and it just it just blows me away. You know what I mean No I I haven't tell gated and a couple of years now due to family commitments. But that was my favorite time when we had all the opposing fans and we were at navy. So We'd have Hawaii all these random schools. Look you flew probably eight hours to get here. Come have beer and food. I see your point. I never had a bad experience with an opposing fan. And they're my favorite people to talk to you and hang out with because you get a different perspective from yours. That's it. I mean you know there's friendly ribbing but listen live with a teeth fan so I'm that's right there right. So it's it's awesome and my favorite part. I've told everybody this and and I mean this whole heartedly. My favorite part about tailgating is meeting people like I. I obviously like food and booze and whatever but I absolutely love meeting New People and we've had people. There is people from Switzerland at this last game. We've had people from the Netherlands Australia for whatever reason we are like the official TAILGATE OF CANADA FOR BRONCO FANS. Because they now beautiful dude and they are the friendliest fucking people on. Earth. Your experience with Canadians but amazing. They're always so nice. You got snow. That's probably true. Well it's illegal illegal wheat so it's not but you know I mean I think out of the years we've been doing this. I've had a problem with one person ever where I had to ask him to leave. And it's not a quiz in is that he was a patriots fan but go otherwise. It's I love meeting people. There's people that as a matter of fact there's a couple of coming to this this game. The dudes been text me every year and we met him like three or four years ago and they always make sure to come back. And that's a is that makes not sound corny but I one hundred percent meanness that makes it worth it because we will yes. We wouldn't be shit without the people that came to hang out with us and so I'm just a I'm just an idiot. That could afford a trailer and to set things up in. I like meeting people. That's that's my only skill in this game and it's just happened to work. No it's a great. It's a great thing I mean I'd go with my wife and I wouldn't see her for eight hours. You get caught up in it. He he just got Comey. My buddy come through the. Hey Hey more shots and you just get caught up and all of a sudden it's six hours are gone but you've met fifty people you connected with them. I've got people that I met probably seven or eight years ago friends just from all in one afternoon in a parking lot so I'm super happy for you guys man. That's awesome. I appreciate that I was. I was joking with my like a couple of friends going to the JAGS game and I didn't get to talk. Hang out with them and I had like one and a half drinks. I said Dude. This game was a wedding you know. I didn't even get the finish two drinks because I was talking to so many people. It's fun work. It is fun work. Yeah and I'm going to say this and I mean this one hundred percent and anybody that's ever been there knows this that I could not do this without the wife because she usually runs the bar area and that woman is going nonstop and the other thing that we we really appreciate her for me and the other guys call her the mayor. I've actually had her a Jersey made for her. That says the mayor because anytime the parking people come over to fuck with us or any time the cops come over to fuck with us. We always direct them to her because she has a way of talking to people and she usually more than the rest of us and she also won't let up when she thinks she has a point so lovingly become. We call her the mayor of town. There you go. Yeah but I couldn't do. I couldn't do without her. Honestly she's she's amazing and people love her people love meeting here. People come just to hang out with her. So it's great dude. We gotta get you out here sometime. I know some I gotta go back one second because you talked about the dark game. I was hoping it wasn't the one I was thinking about because I saw one online recently. Where you you sit in. You Know Lake chairs that you have collapsible chairs that you put a strap in and pull them out like fresh kids soccer game. You'd sit at that height and there's a little bored in front of you with game with a beer on it and you know like cornhole across each other and you're throwing darts to try and hit that beer. So that's yeah and they're selling this product and I'm not gonNA name it but I think this is the worst idea I have ever seen and they post videos all the time people playing hit the can this is. How are you not in fifteen lawsuits? That's crazy like I kind of concern about this one honestly but I mean this one seems. It seems a lot it seems. I don't WANNA say safer because it does seem safer. I mean you're at least standing up so that if if someone throws a dart you're not just right if you if you're sitting down you're going to catch one of the balls real quick. I don't need that at all. Okay so go to de Hyphen darts dot com these guys. It's honestly it's a blast. It's a lot of fun. My Buddy at work Chris he loves the PODCAST means pissed off that we weren't recording for a while. He played it an absolutely loved it. So Oh yeah like. That's a Nice Board Soon. Really well done. They're solid is L. Definitely recommend that if you're looking for new game the BUZZER. Oh my God. Just just fantastic it. I think part of it for me was like it was kind of a Nostalgia. Effect I guess But just so great and then the other the third one that I I sorta talked about. We actually won this from the tailgate. Connect people because we were weak. One we were the tailgate of the weeks and this counts every pro team that they have every college team we we were that we had that big of a week. We won this thing called a dual ring. Daddy have you seen those games like at bars where they'll have like a hook mounted on wall? Yes and then you swing the ring towards it right. This is like a mini version of that. It's like a tabletop version. But it's got two sides in two rings in two hooks and you play. It almost looked up style where you know teams go and go and go and then the last person you know whoever finishes last so our finishes it. I rather do will ring Daddy. They sent us. It's pretty damn cool to thirty bucks. Yeah not bad right beautiful so probably made in the USA. That's it but I do I'm site fireball is. They're coming out for the chiefs. I cannot wait for that one. We've never had a rep come out. They always they're always amazingly generous with. We have ten by tens. We have all kinds of shit from them all kinds of giveaways. They gave me an awesome cooler this last year. One of those ones where you put the bottles in it and keep it cold and dispenses it. They've they've stepped it up so I'm super excited to hang out with them on Thursday and hopefully the rest of Rocco's country and I guess chiefs whatever the fuck they are coming with us and you'll have a friend my wife at least and I'm sure that I'm sure the bandwagon rolling heavy so there'll probably be quite a few people there. Oh yeah awesome awesome awesome. Yeah thanks for letting me rant there. I know I'm excited anymore. So I lived through you at this point. I sound excitable about it but it's because I'm truly as cornea sounds. I'm very passionate about it and I just love doing. I mean we did start a tailgating website so I guess we're we're allowed to get excited about tailgating. That's it. Well I gave you access to our picture. Dropbox you can. You can live through US until I get them posted awesome. Yeah Man all right. I'll let you ransom more here because this is really You know this next segment is you're kind of involved this more than I am. What do you play these days? Well so actually. I haven't been gaming that much lately because you know like I said we had the surgery so I gotta been focusing on her as I should but before that a couple of games came out that a lot of the guys on dischord have been playing ghost. Recon breakpoint which. It's getting some mixed reviews. I like it but I haven't played a ton yet. I don't know you probably haven't played a lot of the newer ghost. Recons IF AT ALL Y. Wildlands was the one before this and they're more open. They're more open world than the grocery cons that we used to play together so really big games. You know pretty much meant for like cooperative. Play which which we're so good at are so great it co-operative play. We still have not played anything. Meaner the Whitey play this together and we have a good time. So it's it's a fun game and then the other one I've been playing a lot as borderlands three. I'm a huge fan of the series in general. This one's pretty fucking awesome. So that's that's it for that and I know that some of the guys under discord there playing Madden League that they keep running twenty and they they run at fantasy style. So you pick your team which basically gives you like your uniform and shit like that and then they do. They do a little draft and they go through fantasy style and draft their team and they play seasons and they they have a blast with it. I haven't joined them yet because I'm terrible at Madden but they love it so you wanNA connect with any of US check out our xbox club. It's called the old man league and then we do have a discord that I will make sure. I put the link in the show description. Come come chat with us. It's a small little family not the most active place in the world. But we like connecting with the guys and talking about. I mean just about eighty subject. You can think of so awesome. Yeah what do I even need to ask? If you know how night I lost it again and I got it back and I lost it. No I don't know I was GONNA take. I did see this. Unnamed Goose game today that interesting but unnamed news. What does that is something. Apparently your goose and you honky people when you steal things on xbox on the switch on PC. But the headline I saw was that somebody apparently went in and stole everything. Put it down a hall or something like that. I don't know but let's unnamed goose game that reminds me of Goat Simulator U. S. Do some of the Games that we got back in the day when so we used to review video games on tailgate and we would go at the indie developers and some of these things they tried. They tried what was the. What was the worst one? Would you say that we had the bear? Remember bear game. That made me sick. Oh my God naughty barreled naughty bear yes. Whatever graphics engine they used. I was getting motion sickness. I descended to you. That's a teddy bear that went around killing people. Yeah that's exactly what it was. It was awful and then am I dreaming or did we have something that was like my virtual girlfriend. That was wasn't an APP that you had to try. That's it that's it and then but didn't they reject you again a couple of months ago or something you know. I don't know that's I don't think they reach out to me again but maybe I don't know there's still going but yeah I kind of those days are some cold out there for your time but most were just district pitch and you did a very good feedback today actually with the sending madden to the the same. Da was we had a buddy of mine was leaving on a submarine and these guys are going to be gone for a while in Madden was coming out like three days or four days or week. Whatever it was after they deployed we reached out to. Ea and sure enough they they believed US first of all which is amazing and sent copies to go out on the boat and they were able to have madden so that was really cool. Yeah that was awesome actually. Well now we're GONNA. We're GONNA continue working on tailgate. Three sixty five dot com. We part of the thing that were like kind of passionate about as we loved writing articles. Just about whatever we wanted. So I'm looking forward to that honestly like when I when I talk about all these Games and shit that they've sent us. I think man. This would be an excellent like review blog. You know what I mean right. I miss it. So don't judge us by held. Articles are on there just We'll get back to at some point some point. I mean it makes the month. We took off for this. Seem like a drop bucket. Yeah does awesome so I think it's I think it's my turn for rent even though I've been talking I feel like nonstop. That's fine. It's sexy Belvedere voice. You mine is a little bit weird and I'm sure this is not uncommon whatsoever but my rent is about NFL officiating. And it's probably not. Well I don't know it. Maybe it is for the reason that you think it feels like me this year that the officiating and I feel like I feel like I think this every single year it feels worse and I can't tell if it's because they've expanded replay so they're just like fuck you I'm GonNa call this and you can change it if you want to or if it's actually just worse I mean. Do you think it's worse or is it might just crazy and this is on par. No I think it's it's bad and I've got I've got a couple of dabbles in my head just off the bat so this may be a shared rant because oh perfect. I've seen some things that just blew my mind. And even the announcers were just stunned. So yes it. Go ahead We'll so here's here's what kick my randolph. Okay and I'm going to. I'm going to preface this with. I am not the kind of Fan. The flames a loss on a call. Because I'm very much of the belief that one moment does not win or lose a game. It's a series of things so I hate it when people say oh if I don't you know if x hadn't happened we would have one. Well I mean if you think about it in a vacuum. I guess that's true but I also think to myself. Yeah and if you had scored twice more when you had the chance before that X. Moment would have never been an issue. You know what I mean so i. I'm not of the opinion of bitching about one call so I WANNA make sure I get that clear. But there's two moments so far in Denver season especially pissed off one of them was against the bears and there was a roughing the passer call that was in the last like twenty to thirty seconds that ended up getting Chicago. A lot of field position and Chicago ended up winning the game. Whatever we didn't stop them on four hundred fifteen so that's a whole nother story. We didn't lose the game because this penalty but they called Chubb for a roughing the passer call. What pissed me off is. The officials came out after the game and publicly said. Yeah we miss that right and I'm like well that's fucking great. You know what I mean. That doesn't I. Would rather you just not say anything? Stick to your guns on the call. Then say yeah we fucked right right okay so fast forward to the Jaguars game. I don't know if you if you watched it. But there had like an eighty yard ridiculous run at one point and it was towards the end of the game when the game was still closed and well on that. Play the one guy that would have had gap coverage on wherefore net ran was von Miller and von was absolutely mugged like the. The linemen was hugging him. You know what I mean. The the officials after the game admitted that they missed the whole. And I'm like what the fuck is going on here. How is it okay to miss these massive calls and then think it's all right to later to say? Yeah we miss that you know what I mean. It's like get your shit straight. Okay so I have two issues so roughing the passer has gotten out of control. Yep I've got two examples. I can think of in my head from previous weeks one. So Lamar Jackson against the steelers. He drops back. He's in the pocket. The steelers linebacker through hits Him Square thighs head up to arm. Tackle takes him to the ground textbook like comes out roughing the passer. I mean look at. It's fine with it but still should he call and then there was. I remember there was in the Dallas Green Bay game so deck is in shock on one of the guys in the packers comes through touches him on the helmet while he's writing scrambling left like twenty thirty yards they call roughing the passer and they naturally what he just ran thirty yards like how. I was rocking pancer right so so that was getting bad. You're the one I can't stand. Is this review of pass interference. Oh yeah we're watching okay. We're commonsense football fans. I can look at these plays and say yes. It was or no. It wasn't the review is pointless because it's not fixing anything. There is a delay. They're scared to overturn calls. And they're not that it's almost like they don't WanNA show up. Whoever made the call I don't it? There's One saints game. That was I mean the guy. Receiver shoved the DB challenged not. Has Interference Right? What are you watching? What are you watching that? We're I heard someone who radio. This is the perfect thing they should have someone like you and I just idiot. Joe's who can sit here and watch a game and say that happened. Have a button and say look at that play right. Look at just what happened looking at. You missed because it's such. It's so ridiculous that is laughable gotten. It's gotten bad and you know no I'm with you. It's like they made the rule to appease the saints fans which they should have. They fucked them but then there it's like okay. We're GONNA make a rule. We're probably not going to really make it useful. You don't it. Does make me crazy speaking of the roughing the passer. There was one I. I don't know if it was last week or the week before. But Clay Matthews was. He was flagged on something. I don't remember who they were playing. But he hit the dude. It was shoulder to chest. I mean clean. It wasn't late and they gave him a roughing the passer thing because they just. It's like they assume that if you hit the quarterback hard that you did it incorrectly somehow right you know. And it's like fucking lighten up. I'm I get that. They're trying to protect quarterbacks. I understand that and I can accept it you know. I'm glad that they do something about the low hits and things like that that those are good things but things like you know. Well look like his helmet might have come close to the other guys helmet. So that's a personal foul. It's you know did the fuck Outta here. That's my rant. I'm more pissed off that they come back later and apologize because that doesn't do anything for the team. Yeah you didn't help us made me more angry after it was over with. Yeah Yeah you're not sorry. You're sorry that I called you out right. Okay there you go. So let's let's roll from ranting anger to voicemail enjoy Yes voicemails. I are texts. I I think that's what the text text I okay all right so about a month ago. Our good friend Mike the nice taxed and it says it's twelve twenty two. Am there's a show on direct TV channel? Two thirty to thirty four called. Do you poop enough. Should I watch it or is it a trick? How much is enough Channel that infomercial? Or are you sure that wasn't cinemax? And you just turn on and unfortunate show. Yeah be careful what you click on their body. Wash nineteen ninety-five. How much is enough? That's that's tricky. I mean if you have to poop than do it do your thing. We have a poop topic. We haven't dove into. I can't I can't we need a Greek. We didn't need. We can agree relationship and okay but it's coming up at some point.

What is like every scope? I'm I don't get into this now. You'RE GONNA have to address him on this though. He's supporting me on this so so you don't like sculptures the ballast point. I think this goes back to the ballast point issue. They were bought out by a big brewery. And you know he's he's very much a small beer guy so I think I made a comment at some point about not supporting them anymore. And I think he's going. We'LL WE'LL SOLIDARITY. They're hanging brother.

I'm gonna fog so i just dropped one of my kids off in l._a. Yesterday well. We're recording on thursday at u._s._c. so it's been a little little bit of an emotional rollercoaster for the week for us. It turns out college. Kinda sucks if you actually like your kids. It's so funny in i drop them off. Totally agree <hes> but you know you and i i was lucky and you are lucky that they're staying local so you know they'll they'll find their way home on a weekend or you know all the holidays they can home for.

The listenership is down kind of piece for us around c._a._s. Us when we're up into the ten thousand times over one hundred thousand downloads but in the summertime when there's less downloads and we only announce it on one show your odds of winning are really really proud yeah well. You're talking for months than when you said tens and hundreds of thousand this was just this show was only downloaded six thousand times for the month. We're running in about <hes> thirty five forty thousand downloads and obviously that's four shows in the but on average <hes> it is a lot more we get a lot more <hes> attraction right around thanksgiving on because we do the <hes> you know the <hes> black friday show we do our <hes> <hes> buyer's guide so that's when the listenership goes up and then also peaks at c._a._s. Then stays pretty good right around tax seasons. I'm giving you guys inside baseball baseball here on our listenership and it goes pretty good to tax season super bowls also big for us and then when i say taxis and because it rebates <hes> getting your refund on sorry and then when summer rolls around it's the doldrums and you could tell sometimes we're kinda like hey guys if you can do calf. We'd appreciate it and <hes> yeah. The aca summer is <hes> is the doldrums. It comes out in the summertime. You know brayden and i we <hes> some people say you know. Take the summer off but we don't wanna get disconnected connected. It's one of these things where we stay connected every week with you and we like doing the show so in some of the ways we we give back to you is by these giveaways as speaking of the cup coming out in the summertime. The show is like we say every week. Entirely listener supported one way you can help the show is by come signing up to become a patron patriot dot com slash h._d._t._v. podcast any little bit or bit or whatever you can give really helps thank you and and the other way is through our coffee metaphor buying the h._d. Guys a cup of coffee at our website. There are links <hes>. There's coffee cups in click on and they equate to a different dollar amount. It's a pay pal donation. If you buy the largest one it's twenty five dollars. You get a shout out so we have three caf pows. <hes> one of them didn't navid shout out and two of them did so. The first one is cole candler. Thank you so much call. He's given cap house in the past and we greatly appreciate it and the next one is <hes> simon doug irs. He's the gentleman that i met when i was in australia and he sent us a calf powell. He says remember when we caught up in sydney and i mentioned it <hes> parking fees in sydney c._b._d. I think that's center business district. Were horrendous. <hes> while the savings i made by parking a couple of miles miles away so imagine this brayden he parked a couple of miles away in walked over to my hotel so that we could meet so i- simon. I'm touched every time i talked to you that that's just fantastic tastic. He says well the savings. I made by parking a couple of miles away. <hes> became a calf pal for you guys and he says <hes> actually when you do the u._s. Who australian exchange rate. It's not in his favor the twenty five dollars a u._s. Actually is forty australian so that's actually to powder simon. Thank you so much. I'm sure that exchange rate was great for you and your family while you were here <hes> and it was really good brayden <hes> and simon the exchange rate was in our favor but there is a lot the things that we weren't used to <hes> there. Were you know first of all the the sales tax or the g._s._t. Was a lot higher than here in the states and then <hes> <hes> if you ate dinner on a saturday night or friday night the added three cents <hes> three percent more because i guess the wait staff get paid a little more but <hes> i guess you don't have tip so it works out and we did anyway so it wasn't as much as we do here in the u._s. But we still did tip so anyway yeah. The exchange rate did work out for us. He says his thanks for giving a sharda a shout out to marlene so i got that right on the last show <hes> he says <hes> you got the name right <hes> she got a real kick out of it so simon she got her name mentioned engine twice all right and our third calf palace from gaurav and he sent an email so we'll jump into that right now in fact we'll do our professional transition from us the e mails with guards email but thank you everybody who signed up for tron incentives calf palace guard says guys. You've been so helpful in the past. Here's a question question that might be best suited to answer as usual sending a calf alan hope you had a good summer after fifteen years of direct t._v. Primarily for sunday ticket it. We cut the cord earlier this summer. We tried direct t._v. Now but really didn't care for it. <hes> the apple t._v. d._v._r. Interface and settled on hulu live since since most of what my family watches is amazon prime netflix h._b._o. Showtime hulu. It's been going fine over the summer. I don't love the hulu live d._v._r. Interface through the apple t._v. but it may do and it was fine for the n._b._a. Finals now with football season approaching. I'm getting nervous on two fronts. The first is not having access so all of the out of market games for the new york giants even though they've made some stupid moves at least there's a this season. There's a hope for the season and he says <hes> any ideas on using some other service for out of market games primarily through an i._p. Interface where apple t._v. secondly if that's not viable what gives gives you the best set of games on sundays and not just the national time games which everyone has but the normal ten and one p._m. Games your experience was that sling t._v. Who hulu live direct t._v. Now or something else so are have you thought through this <hes>. If you were to get rid of sunday ticket what you would do to replace it yes as i did get rid of sunday ticket and i just live without it and here's here's my issue me being a bears fan. I did the math at how many bears games i was actually actually able to watch when i paid for sunday ticket and <hes> a lot of games were nationally televised so i didn't get a benefit that week and there were just some weeks that my schedule didn't permit me to watch the game. The bears game and what ends up happening is when it's all said and done i probably watched about a five have bears games that i i couldn't have watched when you average or divide the price by five. It's a lot for game and i decided it just wasn't worth it but the one thing that i do miss is red zone channel. That was something that i did enjoy because if i wasn't watching the bears there was other games. I didn't really care too much to see the whole game but it was nice. Watching the games one the team's got into the red zone and if the team wasn't there wasn't a team in the red zone they would just put up a game that was kind of interesting and you could just watch it that way so that's the only thing i really miss and <hes> direct t._v. Now does not have red zone channel at least last time. I checked <hes> there was rumors that it would be there to me. That would make it the best for me but i've just said all right you know we live in los angeles and now lord lord los angeles t._v. area and now because we got the clippers and the rams. That's what we get to watch it. That's kind of a bummer because we used to get more just national games here in southern california but now we get the clippers and the rams <hes> so that's kind of what i watch. You got sunday night football. You got monday night football. <hes> i know that's not an answer sir gaurav. I did send him in a link to the cord cutters guide for n._f._l. But there is no real good way to stream out of market games the n._f._l. Does not have like a m._l._b. Package or n._h._l. Center ice package <hes> direct t._v. has the streaming rights however i do believe if you have horizon <hes> <hes> on your cell phone and you have <hes> and you you can download the n._f._l. App i think there you can actually stream some games but other other than that. There's really no good answer yeah. The the sunday ticket has really hosed everybody because by now you should be able to do is essentially pay per view on an n._f._l. App or some kind of app any game you wanna watch. You shouldn't have to pay sunday ticket to get out all the market games when really you're only interested in pretty pretty much one team for the most part but if you could just go and say okay the games that are my team is playing in my local network but i wanna watch them. I can just pay per view you that particular game in stream it for twenty bucks thirty bucks or whatever then you could pick and choose which ones you wanna watch. Maybe there's some let's bears games that you want to watch and you really wanna see and others that you know you're busy or whatever you don't really care you can skip it. That should be a service at the n._f._l. Offers but like you said they owns the streaming rights and they don't want to cannibalize their own sales so they're not gonna do it so we can't get access to it. Yeah it is a shame because on <hes> my apple t._v. Have the m._l._b. app so i do watch the dodgers <hes> i'm out of market or when i have unloaded to look like i'm out of market and <hes> so n._h._l. Even the n._h._l. Oh i can at least they're on fox sports west the los angeles kings anaheim ducks so there's the fox sports go app that shows all the games aims. There's way to watch everything even notre dame for <hes> for goodness sakes you can watch on the n._b._c. sports app. It just football. I just don't understand why n._f._l. Does does is. I know it's a lot of money but i think i cannot believe they wouldn't make more money if they just opened it up to like you said an all card or even just like all the games for two hundred bucks a year available on through streaming. I i can't see how being tied in with direct t._v. Makes that work work. The only thing i can think of as they made this contract along time ago before all the streaming really got mainstream and i think when this contract expires will probably ably see different <hes> scenario yeah and i'm sure there's guarantees in there that <hes> n._f._l. Doesn't want to have to try to work to make up the difference prince that they're gonna lose with the guarantees that they would have to get with streaming. I'm sure you're right. They would eventually do it but there may be some time or a season or two where they'd take a hit on at least says guarantees are getting direct from direct t._v. Yeah all right maybe one day maybe one day and then we got an email from philip and he says has just listened to your last podcast from yesterday eight sixteen twenty nineteen and wanted to comment about amazon not selling avengers in game four k. blu ray disc by the way. We got a lot of emails on this. I says <hes> this is just another example of one company. Bucking another company's attempt to get a cheaper costs for a service or a product in our case c._b._s. Rejected direct t._v.'s i read a._t. And t.'s attempt to lower the cost to buy c._b._s. Content by the way that's been resolved. I have c._b._s. Back on my <hes> direct t._v. Now <hes> i also have noticed list that over the <hes> over a year amazon u._s. has not been able to sell disney blu rays for k. or h._d. On the day of release again amazon has been cost-cutting haas cutting day of release a blu ray <hes> prices too much so none of the disney content including marvel's marvel movies are sold off to amazon on the dave release. You can buy those blu rays from best buy for a higher price on the day of release that you want eventually amazon will get the sell those disney blu rays but not for several the weeks or months after the release date thereby you know this is not his email this amazing and that makes sense it now kind of gives <hes> <hes> best by wh who is i ended up buying the disc from an ability to sell it at a higher price because of amazon had it for four dollars less i was going to buy it at amazon and and <hes> best buy did get my sale so <hes> that part of it works <hes> so i'm not a big fan of that quick as an aside as an aside i <hes> i don't do anything with this at all anymore. Does the twenty eight day wait for netflix and red box and rental still exists between when it comes out for retail and it goes to rental. Oh i don't know i have not rented a disc blu ray uh sorry on red box or <hes> <hes> net flicks in years years i wonder if they just kind of lumped amazon into that amazon's selling off too much inventory at to lower price just lump them in with the streamers and they are not the strongest but the rentals and and that's when they get their disks. That's what this delay. I'm sure seems lame but i'm sure it is because by the time amazon gets even <hes> best buy will lower the price so <hes> but <hes> so anyway. I got it and you know the sad part. It's sitting here. I still have an open ended up in because i rip it and put it on my plex server and <hes> i. I am getting to the point. If fact we're talking about a home theater p._c. I'm getting to the point where i almost don't even want to go through that process anymore. <hes> it it just might as well just buy it on any of the services and they're available on all the other services so anyway <hes> another peculiar problem happens. This was apple through their apple t._v. Not allowing voodoo revolt walmart to sell the streaming content for new releases directly off of their voodoo app for the apple t._v. Presumably zoom ably since this would affect a direct competition with apple in fact the voodoo sold version is more likely to be four k. It'll be vision than apple's version sold through the apple t._v. t._v. Or on i tunes as an example. The apple can only sell the h._d. Streaming version not four k. or vision of disney's marvel's avengers injures endgame presumably because of the contract restrictions between apple and disney. If you go to the buddha website you can buy the four k. streaming version of adventures and game and you get the fourcade. You'll be version at most for <hes> for the same price as apple has the cell the h._d. Version then if you open the voodoo app in the apple tv four k. you can now stream avengers in fourcade. They'll be vision so that's kind of interesting by offline but you can stream it on the apple t._v. All the stuff his nonsense brayden it just absolute nonsense. <hes> anyway says in addition if you buy the voodoo version also appears that your movies anywhere video locker just like like all of apple's videocon locker it appears in your video locker just like all of apple's video content by the way disney has not taken the leap to dobie vision on all paul or a or either some of their four k releases yet so you get four k. blu ray you h._d. Disc from disney has h._d._r. Ten but not they'll be vision which just voodoo a streaming version so what a hodgepodge this is and this is kind of funny says this is a wild west of video content sales now in the u._s. So go figure and that was from philip. Nope and that is kind of reading through that. It's amazing that you could buy it in one place but look at it at another place in higher quality than if you bought it at that other place i'm kind of disappointed in that but <hes> maybe the moral here is just buy it on voodoo and then you could watch it on apple t._v. Yeah who knows or maybe the moralist hopefully these guys get. This thing figured out well so i know my daughters are super excited about <hes> disney plus plus and i told them i'm not going to buy it <hes> although i was going to but now they said okay. They'll buy it so my two daughters are gonna split the monthly fee and i'll i'll get dolby. I'll get <hes> disney plus for free but there's really not too much on there that i care about. I'm sure there's the marvel movies and they're going to have some other titles but i guess it'll be good to have it in the house yeah. I'd like to think right so next emails from jeff. He says first off nine hundred and nine episodes. Wow allow can't believe i've been listening to you guys for this long and in answer to ours issue with not being able to preorder endgame on amazon due to a spat with disney so <hes> <hes> seem as we just talked about amazon doesn't allow preorder of disney movie titles or amazon isn't allowed preorder have disney movie titles the titles become available on release date and he he says i've been using best buy they do have price match policy free shipping and release date delivery also as to tom's email on using a legacy receiver with his new display. He will have to use a r c over his name. I with the l. g. o. Lead for anything other than to channel p._m. And dolby digital any of the more rich sound down codex from dolby digital plus the traits d if he wants to go for atmos- he'll need e. a. r. c. the l._g. Will not output d._s. Codex and yeah so that's some really good information on why you would need a._s._e._a._n. See if it was i think tom said he didn't care about atmos- but w plus h._d. On air sea for h._d. My thanks exchequer alright and we got an email from chris. He says i enjoy when you guys do segments. Were you both choose to complete a system within a budget. He says it makes <hes> he says. This is an idea for a show segment. It makes sense that you guys always keep the budget very reasonable but the listener email on your show <hes> about the seventy thousand t._v. V made me think it'd be fun if you guys could choose a system with a very high budget say something like twenty or thirty thousand that would be fun and sent two us from chris now. We kind of do this at christmas time brandon. We do <hes> <hes>. Our dream set up but even there. We don't really go way over over the top. I think we still come in under under fifteen thousand dollars but that might be something to consider here. Maybe in a month or so. Let's put together. A super high ryan system the problem. Is it kind of goes against what we're about. We always say get the highest quality product you can get but you don't have to go over over the top crazy and spend a lot of money. I think you start getting diminishing. Diminishing returns sure speaker cost thirty thousand dollars going to sound better than speakers cost a thousand dollars a but amd better than speakers that caused five thousand dollars but the question is how much better and i've heard some five thousand dollars seeker speakers. Where's that are phenomenal so i don't know that we would get much but it might be a fun exercise so one one of the ways you could sort of piece it together is by going through our buying guides for each of the different individual items like t._v.'s and receivers and will typically pick a money is no object jake. T._v. is just some ridiculously high price tv and money's no object receiver that would be a ridiculously high price one. That's outside of our typical price range or budget range <hes>. I think that's where we kinda. Splurge a little bit but it's still not thirty thousand dollars for the t._v. Oh yeah for sure because our ethos has always been kind in a bang for the buck and even if i had let's say a ridiculous amount of money to go waste on electronics. Would i go out and spend thirty thousand dollars on the t._v. Probably not because i'd rather other you know spend five and spend the other twenty five on something else so i think for us. It's always been about you know what the absolute best like for screen the biggest highest quality screen. I i can get for the best price and yeah there's other screens out there that are bigger or higher price but would i really do it. I probably wouldn't do it so i can't really feel like i'd recommend this is what i would go by if money was no object because even if it wasn't object. I'd probably spend my money on other things yeah that cars yeah <hes> all right so <hes>. Let's see music streaming case so he says next emails from anton. He says i'm from israel. I've been enjoying listening to your show for a few months. Now think you're doing an excellent job. Kevin and i'm enjoying the show a lot in the latest episode you talked about being stuck with playlists on one music service being the reason that you put off moving to another actually there is a service anton says that does play list transition for you and it's called sound is or sound is e. dot com while a link to to that at our website and he says it supports pretty much every music service out there so if anyone else has kind of got that the fear of migration and you don't want to try to move all of your content and play listen everything over sounded sound is or saudis i i would never use but <hes> it's s._o. U. n. d. is e. Dot com <hes> and like brandon said there's a link at the website for that so it's something to give a shot. If you want to try to do immigration yeah anton welcome and welcome to to the show all right. Let's move over to news and <hes> i article hulu while the publicly publicly reported pay-tv customer numbers i for the second quarter have been universally bad <hes> could the ones not being disclosed create a very different narrative according to moffett nathanson analyst analyst craig moffett burchell m._v._p. Dis <hes> hulu and live t._v. Youtube each added around three hundred thousand customers in the second quarter who lose virtual pay t._v. Service now has about two point four million customers <hes> which rank it on par with <hes> category leader sling t._v. The operator dish network reported that sling t._v. finished q. two with two point four seven million subscribers while adding adding forty eight thousand during the quarter youtube t._v. Would rank third was about one point five million users and again. Neither hulu nor google have reported any official subscriber numbers for their receptive virtual pay tv services in quite some time whose total subscriber base including for the for the subscription v._o._d. Service was last reported at twenty eight million so <hes> interesting news <hes> i had the hulu service temporarily while i was evaluating them and i i just couldn't i just didn't like it enough to keep it. The live who live so i stuck with a t and t <hes> now which <hes> by by the way mind switch from direct t._v. now to eighteen l. officially <hes> even the logo change on my <hes> all the apps but the only thing i'll be honest brayden keeping me at a._t. And t. now is the price that i got when i locked in it's really good price but if they were charging the same amount as say hulu or <hes> sling. I'd probably switch over yeah. I mean i had a similar issue with youtube or with who i tried that one didn't like all the commercials i was having having to watch and the interface is a little bit funky that you kind of have to get used to it but i'm digging youtube t._v. Right now <hes> and every time i talk about canceling the kids freak out. They say we actually do use it. I don't really see him using it but they do freak out when i say i'm gonna cancel it but speaking of streaming services big news for those anticipating the disney he plus launch disney plus will launch on november twelfth and disney has released wish devices and platforms will be able to access it initially the list includes apple t._v. and mobile devices android tv and mobile devices chrome cast roku and some gaming devices but not amazon's fire tv. The service is set to launch in the united states on november twelfth for six ninety nine a month or sixty nine ninety nine. If you pay annually canada the netherlands australia and new zealand we'll be able to start streaming disney plus in november as well. The company says they're gonna try to offer disney plus. In most major global markets within two years of initial launch much also said there's a combo pack twelve ninety nine per month trio of disney plus hulu and e._s._p._n. Plus coming in the future at launch <unk> specifically. If you really want to know what devices because you're staring at ears hoping it's gonna work what specifically devices will work with disney plus when it launches it will be apple t._v. t._v. Maybe o._s. Android mobile devices android tv chrome cast any desktop web browser your ipad your iphone i._o._s. The playstation four roku streaming players roku t._v. and xbox one amazon being obviously like we said the glaring omission from the list is at least for now disney also plans to integrate its content with apple t._v. app so that movies originals and shows will appear there among other suggested things to watch watch but that's probably just more of the same feud of disney said fine. We're not going to put our stuff on amazon devices kind of a bummer. He's kinda well but it's kind of nice seeing these big companies. He's fight with each other because if you remember apple had an issue with <hes> with the fire tv and then they finally the fire the the what is it that amazon on <hes> <hes> you know their app. Why why am i blanking out here. The amazon prime video prime beyond the on apple t._v. once once i did that i got rid of my fire tv. I didn't need it anymore. Because everything i wanted was available there. I just wanted to watch a content and hated to have to switch over to another box so they resolve that issue. I i do believe eventually <hes> amazon and disney will resolve this issue but i really like for me because i'm <hes> got the apple t._v. That is going to be integrated into the apple t._v. App 'cause for me that works out really nice to have all the content that i watch <hes> in that app so i can see what's new new what's coming up and it works with the h._b._o. Go it works with <hes> hulu. It'll work with disney. Obviously works with a lot of the network apps the only thing thing. I wish it would work with that. It doesn't is <hes> net flicks. 'cause we watch a lot of series in net flicks. It'd be great to have it all aggregated in that one app. I do believe that's going to be the future. <hes> companies will provide these aggregation apps that will be able to pull all your content into one place and you won't have to go launch the different apps. It'll will all just be in one spot all right now. I- kia will create a separate business unit managers growing portfolio of smart home products that begin in two thousand twelve the began in two thousand twelve with smart lighting and wireless charging products more recently the sweden based retailer teamed up with sonos secrete smart speakers under the sim funds symphonic sick of. I can't sit these names anyway s. y. M. f. o. n. I s. k. Okay sweetest just seems like a hard language. Speak brayden it. Does man seems like if you're born into it. That's the only way all right and not to be outdone by disney. Plus coming out in november apple plans to raw the apple t._v. Plus movie and tv subscription service in november as as well part of a drive to reach fifty billion dollars in service sales by twenty twenty apple is weighing a nine ninety nine a month subscription price for the streaming service purpose after a free trial and they say with his first foray into video subscriptions apple is weighing different release strategies for shows the company's considering littering offering the first three episodes of some programs followed by weekly installments apple's initial slate of shows will include the morning show with jennifer aniston reese witherspoon and steve carell carell steven spielberg's amazing stories see with jason momoa truth be told with octavia spencer and a documentary series about extravagant houses houses called home. Hey <hes> when i saw the name steve curl. I just thought of something. I watched a movie was the amazon prime. <hes> original is called the last flag standing and it was one of those types of movies. It was kind of like <hes> it was a weird buddy movie and it was about these three three vietnam vets hadn't spoken to each other since vietnam and then one of them <hes> goes to the guy one of them owns a bar any hooks up with him and then they go over to meet the third guy so i don't want to get into the <hes> into the <hes> plot so much to ruin it for people but it was one of those movies that it just just kind of kept building and building and building and it ended with like a <hes> a so it was kind of interesting i was invested in in it and i never could turn it off but at the end i'm like why did i go down this journey. It was it was it was good but it was kind of like wow i just didn't expect expect that so anyway if anyone's seen last flag standing simeon email 'cause i have some thoughts on that <hes>. I just thought it was kind of interesting but i i'd like to talk about it. Maybe we should have a book chat but we can have a movie chat where we all get together and talk about movies yeah so speaking streaming recommendation asian before we jump into the next thing. Are you watching snowfall. No i'm not so snowfall is a tv series. I think from f._x. I've watched the first two seasons seasons on hulu and i'm washing the rest of the third season's on right now. I think watching on youtube t._v. <hes> it's set in l._a. In the eighties like in the lead up to the summer olympics in eighty four and it's about <hes> kind of drugs and cocaine and stuff in in gangs and stuff in the eighties. It's not in a phenomenal show but it's a very entertaining show and because of the sort of l._a. In the eighties connection i've enjoyed watching it. I would be interested in check yeah well. I remember you liked watching like the the l._a. References in chips. I grew up in the eighties and i remember that time period very very well <hes> i it's just interesting racing. I never went down that path but i had some friends who did go down. That path was <hes> just kinda. That scene was real. It was interesting interesting. I've said that a lot today all right. Let's go on and answer the question brayden what happened to the h._d. P._c. So when we first started doing this podcast many many years ago the home theater p._c. Was the thing it was. What d- <hes> we we strove for having a home theater p._c. Didn't we and we look for any way we could come up with an and it was mostly to kind of replicate. What a <hes>. <hes> collide escape was yeah so so d._i._y. Is built them from scratch and others would <hes> who were not so technically inclined could just by him fully built and re ready to go products from third party vendors unders xbox owners were very lucky because they could have windows media center client that was built into their gaming consoles so they could leave the p._c. In their office instill instill have a home theater pc experience in the family room the just a little aside but back in the day h._p. Was huge in this market. We went to one show show. I remember what show it was. We were walking the floor. H._p.'s booth was gigantic because they had the d._l._p.'s the g._o._p.'s at the time and a bunch of different form factors of a._t._p. He sees they were trying to push into home theater in a big way <hes> but then fast forward ten years and home theater p._c.'s not really a thing anymore. You can still buy some some prebuilt products like one from intel. It's called the box knock eight. I three c. y. S. in one knock eight home many p._c. With windows ten no kidding. That's really really the name if you want to search for it probably don't just go click on the link. We have at the website. I saw it's at amazon four hundred twenty five bucks. If you're the handy type you can actually build one from scratch approach. There's a website called the tech buyer guru. That has a parts list. It'll go for less than seven hundred fifty dollars. If you get everything from amazon they even have step by step. Instructions goes on how to assemble the p._c. Kind of think. This is the way to go. If you wanna do it if you're still in the market to build one of these once you build one from parts. It'll be on par with the home theater p._c. That akash probably two or three times more if you were to buy it fully assembled so if this is something that you're in the market for putting it together. It's probably makes sense. Now wants a p._c. Is built. You have to install software <hes> windows. No longer comes with what we found to be. The best media center which was windows media center that thing was excellent was rock-solid brayden and they even had the capability ready for tuner that was built in remember the hop pig ho how pug tuner and all these things that just worked really well. I was <hes> quite impressed with it anyway anyway. So you can download you would have to download install it on your own and there's plenty to choose from that are free so we're going to go through a few of those right now. Oh all right so if you want to build your home theater one way to build it is use plex plex brings together all the media that matters to you your personal collection election will look beautiful alongside stellar streaming content live t._v. d._v._r. A growing catalog of great web shows news podcasts. It's possible people to enjoy all the media you love in a single app on any device. No matter where you are so plex could be your server and then you can have a plex app on literally literally anything you want in any room and straighten that out to anywhere and then next up cody and cody spawn from from the love of media. It's an entertainment hub brings you. All the digital media brings all your digital media together into a beautiful end user friendly package. It's one hundred percent free and open source very customizable sizable and runs on a wide variety of devices it supported by dedicated team of volunteers and a huge community so basically we're reading you the tagline for these companies and another one another option is media portal transforms your p._c. Into a complete media solution runs on basic hardware connects directly directly to your t._v. and displays your tv series movies photos and music in a much more dynamic way all the comfort of your living room on your big screen l._c._d. Or plasma atv or project now the interesting thing about these brain all three of these. I'm almost positive <hes> i know media puerto and cody were for sure and i think plex to were derivatives of the original xbox media center in what way back in the day somebody hacked xbox and they put this media center software on there and then these i think we're all derivatives of that and they just kind of went off into their own fork and <hes> they developed into these <hes> <hes> these platforms arms and there are others as well and <hes> so there does we probably didn't mentioned but there's other ones out there too now. Once you install the software you point your media file suid and you're off to the races so back in the day. That would be enough for you and you'd you'd be the envy of everyone on the block brain. I remember having people come to my house and i would pull up my <hes> my software that had all my movies and i just pick a movie and we'd watch it and people were like oh this is so cool and <hes> it was kind of fun in fact i kinda showed off a little of it but <hes> i in in i felt as though once i put plex on many years ago that gave me the same experience as a most people had declined escape. <hes> i know clyde escape didn't like a saying that but in essence i think that's what i got because i can watch it like you said on apple t._v. My computer <hes> even a tablet so <hes> but anyway that like. I said that would make you the envy of everyone on the on the block but today there's so many options for getting your content that h._d. P._h._d. p._c. With just media saw server software falls short early on there was no net flicks. No hulu apple google or amazon so content really didn't matter if that there today you have content ten all over the place and the problem is that interface to that content is not usable with a remote control. You know brain you can get to netflix because you can get to hulu on your computer and that's essentially what these <hes> h._t._t._p._s.'s are. They are computers with when you install an application. That's the front end to it. In the computer ceases being a computer you no longer have a <hes> <hes> you know browser in that mode and <hes> it just makes it cumbersome to us news. Yeah sure there are plug ins that are developed for those media. Services are trying to fix the interface problems but d._r. In protected content just doesn't play and there's other issues with those products well so in actuality the real reason the h._d. P._c. dropped off. The face of the earth is because of the set top box the roku with apple t._v. the fire t._v.'s of today do much much more for a fraction of the price plus. You get players for your device that work with some of the the media servers out there so <hes> plex in particular looks great on the set top boxes and then all you need is a computer somewhere on the network that runs a plex server and then you have access access to all your content on your phones computers and set top boxes yeah but this isn't how the original a._c._p._c.'s worked of course in the old scenario r._e._o. The computers video was run to the t._v. And when you launch the player went to full screen like a video game taken over the computers interface. This method is by far better. You don't ready to keep a noisy p._c. On in the room with the t._v. and the contact could be served multiple t._v.'s and multiple devices throughout that network. So what do you guys think do you you. Do you still want to h._d. P._c. or do even need them anymore. I personally think we don't need home theater p._c.'s anymore because especially how're buying content nowadays today's you could rent it from amazon google <hes> apple and they store your media now granted some people say i want to have the physical physical media and i get that but for the ease of just plugging in <hes> sixty nine ninety nine hundred ninety nine dollars device and having access to it on on all your devices <hes> it's unlikely amazon and apple and google are gonna go away anytime in the near future so i i think that's the way to go yet the one of the cool things with the home theater p._c. Back in the day was that you could integrate your tv signal like you said the hawk capture cards <hes> or whatever and and d._v._r. And then all of your local content and everything was all integrated into that one box but now where you're getting your tv not everybody but you can get your t._v. Just over an app so it's on that same roku apple t._v. Device in all of your content like you were saying a second ago. You know i instead of buying the disk and ripping it. I can just get it in my cloud cloud services and just have it there in stream it. I was thinking the same thing. I rip it to my cloud device. I call netflix and just wait for to show up there and it's all already kind of in my catalog log that i can stream to any device at anytime so there's a whole lot less of a need for that local box that has content on it when all the continents available title or not all the content but most of the concept. We're getting including your teeth live t._v. D._v._r. is available from the cloud agreed and as the <hes> higher rate <hes> streaming is more available and you can start getting <hes> for k. and h._d._r. It's just i just amazing to me. Were we're getting streamed compared to what it was like when we first started now sure the purists are gonna say well. There's no way you're ever gonna compete with h._d. Disk and we agree with that but i tell you you get close enough in the convenience factor. I don't know that i care i is you were mentioning. You eliminated your blu ray player. I i my blueberry. Player is still in my system but i haven't turned it on in over a year. <hes> even my like i think the avengers movie that i'm talking about i will ripped out to the server and i'll probably still watch it off the server instead of watching it <hes> off the disk now i do rip it at a very high bit rate eight and i do have <hes> the h._d. Are in that kind of stuff <hes> still in there but <hes> it just more convenient yeah for sure. I think you're right though with the aggregate apps like the apple t._v. App roku has one. It's not quite as good but everybody's gonna need. Amazon will need one on the fire devices but everyone everyone will need a really really good aggregate or apples all that content together so you get back to that home theater pc where you had one unit that did everything without having to like you said you you had to switch boxes at one point but even sometimes switching apps can be a little bit of a a sort of a jarring break in the experience yeah for like right. Now i watched two seasons seasons of snowfall on hulu and the third was not available on hulu yet. It's on <hes> youtube t._v. And keep bringing up hulu to watch and then i forget oh wait no. I'm watching youtube t._v. Now and i gotta kill that the other one. I wish i just had one interface to go to say i want to watch this show and it would pull up the episode on in the app that i wanted to pull up in yeah. Well and that's what apple t._v. Does it although it kinda interesting i have h._b._o. On my a._t._t. Now and so we're watching silicon valley and every now and then the apple t._v. App gets confused and it goes to the <hes> the <hes> youtube asari goes to the a._t. and t. app inside the h._b._o. Go app and i prefer to watch on h._b._o. Go app instead of the apple t._v. I just think the quality is a little bit better and it could just be the way i think but <hes> i it. It'd be better if you could just say nope. I only want to watch it on this app. Yeah dialing kind of what your favorites yeah all right well. That is for today. Show thank you everybody for listening for those who helped support.

With some information about the. Further. My comments last week. I don't really know enough about vermouth to comment on the issue at the moment until such point. Well, I can legitimately concerned myself Verma snob and that remains the case of not manage to. I'm not found time this week. But maybe next week Nova. Thanks for the Email Sunday good starting point for Daniel in his efforts to educate himself on vermouth where we recording late morning last week when we never musette didn't appear Atif it's sort of early evening drink just before dinner attend. See you turn it in line. Didn't turn it down. Just being polite. Any cycling news this week Atto? On the busiest week of the year. So far, I'm do feel free to chip in during the round up. We're gonna discuss opening weekend in Belgium in a bit more detail in the first part the podcast, but in brief to current quickstep did the double at the weekend winning news black with tenure exte- bar and then Kern Buffum Kern with Bob young goes. And then they added lift Sammy on Tuesday floor Senate shelf French rider made three couple classics out three in quick succession. Daniel Senegal is on course to win the twenty twenty four pyro bay as you've long predicted. Is that right say I think I I ticked shelter win pyro by in about nineteen seventy three which is probably about what it was about fifteen years for he was born. But yeah, I him every single year. I kind of not sure what reaction we can expect from his girlfriend if he wins pirate bay given her. Response to him winning the salmon because it was it was he was fairly happy quite over the top celebrations. I felt for I mean an important race by grace. But it was certainly the most important race on Tuesday sentiment was important race for him as well. Yeah. Quite birthday. Rich also missed that. Okay. Oh, well, good for him. So that's three three two quick stat on the Cobos. I'm quite a few stories throw. Not by the weakens racing. Most notably the women's only news had to be stopped when breakway right? Nicole Hansen of the big lateen got very close to catching the men's race which have been set off a head of the women clearly not far enough ahead. The women's race was neutralized handsome and set off again, followed by the bunch of entry court her and the race with one by try to shantelle black ahead of Marta bastion, nearly of Italy who then won the van het Hoglund the following day. Now, this was odd not being to us back for few years. And this was the first time that eight integrated the start and finish the first time. I'd seen them. Do. This team presentation was integrated in the center of the famous track in Gant. And I went looked the shed us. Now, the slowest men should you'll and the fall. Women's shed. There's only ten minutes apart in the first hour of racing the women which to right over the Lieber. And then after the Lieber pull off the course and make their way to the finish. The men were really dawdling when we first saw them nature poodle, pasta softer probably thirty kilometers on their way to the Lieber, and that caused the problem really lots of reaction to this because people are asking, well, why couldn't they stop the men's race and the women pass. Well, the simple reason for that is it would have made the logistics for the rest of the day. It would have turned to bad situation into a chaotic and probably catastrophic one because the chances are the men may well have called them up probably what they should have done. And I don't think don't get the sense anyone in the men's race really knew that the women were closing in because there was no instruction from the commerce side to the team sports directors to say look the women's race it endanger catching you up. Can you get your guys press on a bit which would have been probably the the sensible response. And I think this is an unintended consequence of trying to do the right thing and integrate the two races and improve the profile of the women's race by holding on the same day having the star, and finishing the Saint place in using largely the same course, the the problem is, you know, this races take place in the real world out on public roads are open to traffic, and I suspect from my questioning on the following morning. That's consensus was. They can't close roads for forty five minutes to an hour. They want to keep the road closure sensible for the general population. So that's where the problem we're going to talk about this a bit more on the second podcast Femina next week. I'm going into you with Hansen in that episode. And I it spawned a love stories in the press about, you know, the women catching the man is a great headline. That's not entirely not curate of reflection of what will happen really are. How would as we know high road racing works. I will say women's rights were seventy seven kilometers shorter than the man. The four kilometer our slow. Obvious as well in sort of defense, the organizers what happened was has become very unusual that that m races of tended to to run the way that used blonde round where they did a lot of the break this huge lead. And they did the long that's been quite unusual that goes against the recent pattern where average speeds over the whole race of being higher and breaks not allowed that sort of a gap. So quite of unusual things going on there. And which created this unfortunate situation. I watched the the women's race. And frankly, the women were stopped and asked the positive. They didn't seem that bothered by or angry about it and not happen. Sometime bite races for all kinds of reasons. It could be a level crossing actually they stopped them just before a level crossing. And I thought this could be interesting starting again and the cover crossing come signed between the the break in the bunch, but they moved them then beyond the level crossing and restarted the race. But these things do happen. From time to time. And and as we'll talk about more thanks week. Yeah. There was another. The couldn't Brussels junior race that I know whether you saw the video on social media at the start of the race in the neutralised section suddenly the lead commissars car braked and a couple of riders crashed into the back of the car was not expecting the the lead car to break. Suddenly the from reports it seems that the cause automatic breaking kick the with Countess didn't last year. That's right. Yeah. The divider that last year. Eight or so the automatic breaking county, and when the writers frankly pulled alongside the car and the census slammed on the Anka's probably wanna disable that function the car for driving a shouldn't laugh because it it looked quite NAS. Yeah. I mean, it was. But again, you know, this is the thing, isn't it? You know, a lot of anger on social media about mistakes do happen. I mean, a bike race ever mistakes all day every day. And sometimes particularly when you're out on the course in these races. You do get so sense of the fear that the the whole thing happening by the country, the vehicles motorbikes public, and yeah, we see these kind of incidents all the more because everyone's filming everything. And you know, they get the publicity of social media, anyway, finishing up in Belgium. There was some crashes over the weekend, but probably the highest profile with love two dollars. Teach Manute crashed in news flat and touching gopher straw to Bianchi the weekend. He's defending champion mare in Italy. We don't know at this point whether he will be fit to take star. He he seemed optimistic on Sunday, and well, we should wait and see. Other racing. The UAE tour concluded in Dubai and one by Primoz Roque Lynch, JIMBO viscera rogue. Lynch one one. He led from start to finish. He won the Panova stage the day before that Caleb Ewan at one eight punchy finish at Hatter dam, which was price to me having listened to a forthcoming interview. We've got with Caleb you in perhaps not such a surprise to see him win on a Finnish. Like that. The phone who stayed with one by Arlen sample of one hundred grow an impressive victory for him because he beat Fernando Gavia and Caleb you in both being banging form. You might have heard Daniels interview with Bennett from the training camp at the start the season. He's very disappointed that he's unlikely to ride the Jiro or the tour, but if he keeps winning races, he might force his way in somehow who knows to Austria force. It's the true crew, Richard. I'm to full mature the front stage win as being in good form at the weekend. In the south of France. Lillian Cowman sham won the classic. Dr. Dash and Alexis Remo swan the Drome classic track racing to delight Danu the world championships in produce Goff. Poland Netherlands, Australia, both won six gold medals Netherlands top the medal table by virtue. More silver medals for the big stories were the Australian court of Sam welsford calendar. Brian Lee Howard, Alex porta broke the world record in the team. Shoot with three forty eight point one two in the final lightning-quick considering that push track is not one of the quickest in the world or not thought to be lost Howard was making coffee. Yeah. I've friend slacking that you can be a one minute by day and try indoor shooting demon. Well, yeah. But he he owned opened the caffeine endure. I I went to. Join the wealth when the Welte went Dora and 'em. He was spending summer there. The winter focus for him was definitely at trailing and on the track. Wow. Paid off certainly they beat Great Britain in the final and the Great Britain. Coretec. We're no slouch either. Because they did three fifty point eight one which is not a slow time. The Australians also won the women's team pursuit with an Edmonson Ashley and cooed enough, Georgia, Baker and Amy cure. They also be Great Britain in the final. Another few stories from the world's that caught my eye. Roger Kluger who finished you a tour for Lotte shoot. Al on Saturday morning. Flew on arrived at the track three hours before the medicine teamed up with his German teammates, the Reinhardt and won the gold jersey thousand credible. Believe it that's sort of shock on Katito finag bordeaux-paris back to back story was also pray busy the. He was quite visible working for Caleb. You'd so. I was stunned. Yeah. Yeah. Well, done him Filippo Ganor virtually who Raj for the team sky on the road, one the individual pursuit and custom build of the Netherlands won the Omnium Madison the Madison with Amy Peters, but the one that away was a scratch race. Now, I saw that. And there would be crashed with about a lack or so to go wiped out nearly everybody an Elinor Barker of of Great Britain beat custom build in the sprint away from the racing. The other big story of the week. And we'll talk about this in the third par. Today's podcast the big blood-doping story that's coming out of Austria started with police raid on some cross country. Skiers I think it was and has snowballed up some cyclists so far we know about Stephan feel who wanna stage with twenty seventeen Vuelta Akwa blue and had signed for the CCC team for this season. But pulled out of that contract late last year, citing personal reasons he. He confessed to blood-doping in a police interview. And then the following day. Another upstream writer Jorge pride LA of Groupama F D J who was a member of Tom Demere lands JIRA winning son whip team twenty seventeen he's also confessed to doping he. Although he says he only recently started dabbling in doping and didn't didn't influence his previous races. You'll raising an eyebrow there ritual quite well. Lots more to sail not story though, later on in the podcast. Lot's more yet. I'm finally, former team sky and Great Britain. Doctor Dr Richard Freeman he's being subject to hearing by the general medical council in Manchester. It's been a journey possibly for quite a few months now off to almost a month behind closed doors legal argument and the case centers on the delivery of some testosterone, British lichen headquarters. No expecting any resolution to this case anytime soon possibly. Even before the end of the year, but we will follow that as it on. I community around the world. Stories and films with the most compelling characters the world's finest apparel, explore the world of cycling with Rafeh very much.

But he could fun lutes quite fetching that I mean, it is quite good fun as well. Yeah. I'm not so color isn't. Yeah. I'm trying to that. You can put a logo on the on the brash. They're trying to my passport picture this stuff. Quite rightly the ref accustom doesn't allow you to upload images like that for your good, really. But yeah, you can really within the parameters e can have all sorts of different stripes, horizontal stripes vertical stripes, different colors on the sleeve different colors on the back and see people getting quite inventive with from the crowd. Go to raff CC to have look at that. And discounts up to forty percent. I'm on big orders. So definitely worth thing. If you're a club or or. Particular event or something I would think Rafferty C C for more information. Now, you're despite Lilo from Belgium, we here we could go in glorious sunshine predicting a we can define weather in Flanders. It didn't quite work now. Well, the weather full cost on loss Tuesday when we record it or was it Wednesday like it was going to be bright and sunny in Flanders, but then by the weekend, not changed. It was cold and it rained fabric on Sunday, congress who's can typical opening weekend weather, really and typical opening weekend racing made a a friend of the cost special opening weekend, which is online now for two thousand nine hundred friends of the cost just capturing this morning. Lionel and good really enjoy the gray. And there were two things that really stood out for me. One of them was my Haymond story his first ever race three either. No don't want it. When he turned out for his frustrates. He he didn't get the car because he was scared spoiled it. Yeah. Well, I'm not saying why he was scared. You got to listen to find it. Why was scared? There's a very specific. Really fascinating reason. Yeah. Another story that jumped nine if it comes back to mail mention listen to again, rich the two races would great. I thought unto quickstep did the double they've not done that before not being done by the same team to meet don't think. I I'd have to double check that think supposed to do that before we record. I know he saw check everything before we record but static Steve one. Well, this is the question. I was going to ask is not the biggest one day race win of his career. Wanna laws as anyone in the national title, check national title? It's it's it's only newsflash straw to be uncovered the bigger race. Now says probably they're probably on a par on. But it was an impressive finish. He was in final group of five with Gregg Renova Matt twice winner. Of course. Tim Wellens Dylan turns and the Catholic rider Alexi Cinco who fresh from dominating the two of them, of course. And well, the finale was quite interesting, Tim Wellens might as well of had a a massive sign above his head stealing your. Stealing from somebody else. I mean, he he read in the full report and somebody signposts move. So so so clearly that they might as well rented an airplane in how to banner flying across the stadium. But yeah, Tim Wellens move was was signposted pretty well. There was a traffic island, and they were any he was tightening his shoes and went the wrong side of the road. Get advantage of the road split in into debar, basically, not long after that kind of countered, and we'll the promo van Vermont as well was clearly the fancied writer and writer who fancied himself, and he was. You know, he was he was trying every opportunity to force a split again signposting find that he was the strongest and felt the strongest, and so he was the guy he shouldn't have been, but he was a guy that closed the gap to Wellens and then Steve over the top yet not writers who fancy themselves which had a good story. Couple of weeks about the band classic specialist. I'm going to give away his nationality. Belgian classics specialist who's known as the world champion with no stripes because he apparently quite rates himself. However, that's not Greg van. In this particular ride. It wasn't really in the shakeup of the interesting wonder who that is at send us your top eighteen potential handed. On maple just on the on the mix of riders in that in winning group or in front group at the end. I thought it was quite curious in sense that were three right? You wouldn't necessarily soci- with coupled classics, those riders being toys Wellens and Sankar in sinkers case, I think it's probably something that he's developing will develop in in terms of his abilities and his repertoire of skills, but and towing certainly someone your your state more with the all, Dan MAs aches, longest leaper, climbs and Wellens as well. To some extent. I don't know whether this is due to the time of year and the the big boys have really come out to play or whether hints the future direction of those two guys careers possibly Wellens. Of course was partially benefited in the center his teammate Banou was. Faller with around thirty kilometers to go. So we're kind of out of the picture. And and that would have you know, if there had been any sort of hierarchy you would have thought that would be that the team leader in a race. But then once he's out of the picture that frees up Wellens, I think it's about form, isn't it? I mean by being good so far Cinco. Very good in Tim Wellens as one of races already. So these races rely if you're strong, you're strong and the way that van Vermont was writing almost to me like he was using almost for training as well. Because the efforts he was making on the claims if they worked great won the race. But it looked to me as though there was a sort of other purpose for him. They're just trying to prise time racist to come particularly the to flounder empire. Obey all that priorities for anathema. I spoke to Chimuka Markevic of CCC off to the right? And they were they happy with his condition. Bit disappointed with the result. And I was I was a little bit surprised the off of each was saying that they've not thought any further pay rebate for Matt. Because I thought well pizza's again, notably news black because he is we think targeting the age based on the age with new finish. And if a Finnish suit again, you would think that the court which suit whenever but that the the CCC team focusing the moment on the couple classics, and then I guess will take it. You know, see what sort of form? He's in what conditions in after rations. Are we're gonna hear from tones. Yeah. We can hear from Dylan twins. Who was in that move the finish? He finished fifth out five riding for Barra. Morita? Now, Steve are you mentioned he he counted basically with roundabout two and a half kilometers to go. When in a very similar place to Michael vulgar, and who won from a bigger group last year, but went and held off the rest of the riders from sort of two two and half kilometers to go. Well, I often what was going through his mind when did he feel like he had a one in five chance of winning? Was really happy that I was there on the mood on the on the move. And the the Busby was bit of. Of surviving or keeping the strongest guys the real the views of the strongest guys like Steve by gag saw really strong that and I had to stay with them don't lose much and this worked wealth finally. But then there was still a long way to go, and you feel like loot Sankoh. And and the there could still make some some big efforts there and the and the phone I try to save a little bit of energy for the lost. Yeah. Really three K like they're really final. And in the end, the tack of Velez was was the first open over then when catch them the speed fell down, and yeah, Stephen made directly the attack, and yeah, he was gone. You saw directly the he was he was gone. Did you know that Steve are tacked in a very similar place to vulgar in from last year? That's been our. Realized it was like after the tree K and must be more or less the same. And finally Venema star to maybe work. But then when he sat up you then lifted it. Jones to bring back now, you know like and that moment, you know, who was going to close the gap with lost race. So that's the problem like that moment who was closing as losing the race. So anyway, do you could actually see Steve always gone. That I do I think team car, the back of the pack. Lease voice of PK race radio at the two of the frogs to remind us to tell you that this episode is sponsored by locker locker is a smarter way. Insuring your bike's gear.

About April two thousand eighteen I am training for big ride. This yet to ride the marathon all imitate their whole model is predicated around paying out rather than retaining money. I think is good that they understand the market. And they understand why people claim a really like the fact that they've got to community crowdsource feel around this a light the way that the insurance is structured, but I also like the fact that they are out organizing rides that out creating this Facebook group that out doing events, and you actually get to meet the people speak to the actual people in person, and there's a face this not just a big corporate who is just out to make money.

While the winner of hadn't used black. Rich was Steve polish off last year's string of results in the classics were impressive. Lots of top ten finishes, but waste bridesmaid never the bride really in those races. We've seen him crash unfortunate moments rebate before and you know, the sense from his press conference oft, which was starting to think that a Belgian classic with was never gonna come his way. Big win for the current quickstep because the pressure the weighs on them for these races. And while maybe the fact that they got the first win on Saturday while it certainly freed up young goes for Kern breath of Kern on the the following day in and if anything that was an even more impressive victory because he went with fifteen kilometers to go one lap of the finishing circuit and looked very very strong to hold off the chase. But the most remarkable thing about that. Chase was the by visiting writers were on the front chasing to try and bring it back together for dealing grown awaken who won last year, of course. And then a more of a pack of quickstep to kind of quickstep riders came up to the front pretty much bullied them off the front and said, no don't chase by when it was amazing to watch because gem recurs, well, they're chasing. But when the somebody on the front chasing, the quick that the decoding set guys just got behind them an unformed a block of four or five writers. And that's what it looked like they were bullying other teams. I have I chasing any beef about not napalm. I think so I mean what from the by visual riders. Well from from any number of teams really his chase with was impeded. I mean, we have seen teams of do that before we certainly seen individual riders from teams or maybe even a couple of riders to insert themselves into the line and make difficult for the chase to be organized. But I don't think of seen a full team lineup not before. No. I mean, it was intimidating wasn't it. I mean, the thing is I think this is one of the great uncovered aspects of cycling, but also professional sport serves the sense of stature status intimidation. Sledging, even you know, mind games talking talking people out of a position of strength nudging people our position of strength positioning and. Presence are absolutely critical needs racism, and I mean, it's it was a pretty awesome show of strength. You either stand your ground or you or you melt away. I don't I watch a couple of times. I get the feeling that quickstep did anything with out of order. They did something that was intimidating. But I mean, they didn't deny space RG Balji their way to the front. They just at the front wave their arms a bit to say slow down and the the rest of the bunch and it made a difference. Because you look like he was high on it was win. The it was hard is traditionally a race ends up on sprint. Although yes, for stolen a couple years ago that a similar similar thing. But you can go his lead was going philosophy Qantas's Hibbs, heightened by a thread. Really haven't looked like it would come back. But it was a tired group behind this. Well, it'd be a tough day. And you know, it could be the the other teams didn't quite have the numbers. The the couldn't quick that hide to organize a chase the counter the the guys they had that refresh off to be on the front. We should mention the Wayne do who was. You know, I really notable result of his road career. He finished second jumping away at the end to the feud disqualifications for writing on cycle paths, and he drifted right off the road in in the finishing straight and then our pumped rundown. Retiring hoardings again, and I wondered if he might get in trouble for that. But no he held on on a very writing on the road wasn't. He I mean, I it was just the shape of the barriers sad. I can tell whether there was a psychopathic so the road or not, I don't know. But yeah. Yeah. It was a hugely. Impressive performed by wasn't it. I mean last year of midway through last year looked his future team. So I might be certainly if not in jeopardy than than in question. I remember twelve you'll last year they kind of gave him the the leadership role, and he didn't really take the opportunity didn't rob sickly well there, and I was not surprised but curious to say that that gives him another contract later on in the year. And he certainly looks. He he's going to say about justifying that he would well, I mean apart from the finish Hebrews. He was active earlier own as well a little move. So. Yeah, I mean, it wasn't very impressive jump away. But could you do that? If it was first place up for grabs with the team on the front leading out with new giving everything for the sprint. Probably not it doesn't necessarily follow that. Because he got second place. In that manner. You could get first place in that. But nevertheless, it was a it was a, you know, a decisive move. I and a good result. You know, one you can you can put on the CV and point to at the end of the year just on the disqualifications. Rich news polit of Katusha was disqualified, but Mattia trend teen wasn't is. Okay. I thought he no I don't think he what he would DNS because he was caught off the back, and he went on a psychopath from what I gather the issue is whether or not endanger spectators and new politics move was judged to be perhaps other side of a line of spectator to whatever it's again. It's a bit like talking about last week the application of these rules is very much in the it's the the eyes of the the judge and jury, isn't it? They see what's what. And they make a decision for the ill sport cycling, isn't that? Where the the women the man enough to stop and wait. And then the cyclists get disqualified for right? On cycling pie. Explain this to newcomer well invade. Just before we move away from Belgium. Had we ought to mention the controversy over the poster to promote the the pink Bank beef three barrel back. What what was he three hero back ever going home? One of the few of the spring ballot races isn't organized and run by Flanders classics the company, which is really who've it up the bigger one day races in the region. Now, they've had trouble in the past over frankly sexist posters to promote their race one year. They had some little cyclist writing over basically, a naked woman on this year's poster I didn't mention in last week's news roundup, frankly, because like it was giving the oxygen of publicity to something that was just a bit NAFTA marketing for them during their marketing for them. Yeah. But because you see I have now teed feel like we ought to mention it. The UCI basically told the rate organizers to take the post. Down from that social media now when I first story I really had to squint to try and see what the fuss was about to meet my is it was like one of those magical posted. I couldn't quite see what it actually was. But it's basically to body painted women the image of a frog and the inferences that the winner of the three race. The prize is is proud. I I don't know what it is. I I I don't really understand the poster it just spilled me, it's just it's just tarring really if my response to it's just kind of a necessary for the race organizer clearly designed to generate some kind of Basel FOSS, but it's generating the wrong. So about them certainly outside of Florida's the UCF said take off social media but driving around while we were on Sunday where where the rate as we were coming back with the race the three race take place. It's on enormous billboards on the side of factories. It's everywhere on roundabout is easier to make water is when you see on a billboard. Really it. Just looks like fro- a throw get very close a new still conquest. And then you come pasta it. Anyway, it's. Yes. UCI vote, but they have they've threatened legal action unless they remove the image again going back to the the thing about littering from last week UCI. Introducing a rule about littering that's about clear as mart. Introducing the rule about psychopath, when's d Q when a D Q and this just have clearly written rule about race promotional material and say, what is acceptable, what isn't acceptable rather than getting involved off to the fact a one. Napalm? What would that look like in this case? But now. Of the law about pavements, and you know, the wording United's probably to the fact of endangered spectators. But that in itself is a subjective concept is in danger spectators. What is offensive in regulation about a race post? It's a tricky one, but it should offensive to some people and probably a big deal to other people, but you could just say look, no promotional material involves naked or scantily clad body. Painted women. Simple brother, who is a nature photographer does paint. People men women in body paint as frogs because he to highlight the plight of endangered frogs. But us I don't think that's what the three poster is now is is helping to promote thought it kind of does an having spent the weekend in Belgium and just reacquainting show with these races. So obvious that the whole region, this whole cycling culture of the region. Microcosm. Really? I mean. It is no as far as as the Belgians are concerned only news Blad is the first preparation of the season. And actually this reminds me of the seconds most. I you're catching of your episodes Lionel because it was your few Hugo it's and the just the extent of the coverage of the race and used by the paper that he works for hundred page supplement the week before hadn't used by. Then twelve to twenty pages a day on the race there. Twenty journalists photographers you spot on the day that was all really fascinating. And we kind of knew it. But it's just to hear it is extraordinary. Are they are big deal? And you know, you do get the feeling in spring. But if the season ended with high rega-, no one in Flanders that bothered.

Can then be used as a dish in Africa it in terms of fuel enjoying the ride try and develop a proactive approach to nutrition web eye doctors eating and drinking at regular intervals that can be a combination of fluids, ho foods, or she's been honest, and then to pause or science for is tonic energy gels out in the bike. That could look like a banana gel wants to over. The course of a two hour ride focus on frequency of of maintaining consistent energy levels throughout the ride as opposed to going through those massive peaks and troughs that we often say portray recovery should still include a couple of key nutrients, namely protein and carbohydrate trying to cheat that through a couple of different eaten occasions. So you can immediately Poche right flavored milk quotes. Tastic has a recovery drinking age group and that a male within the next one to two hours? Well, as you mentioned in your news round up big story that we can sort of erupted while you were in Belgium, initially Sony. Stephan dental, the Australian writer who wanna stage of wealth twenty seventeen writing for Akwa blue sport had signed for CCC for this year. And then pulled out of that contract over over Christmas for personal reasons. He never elaborated on what those were and he was outed on Sunday as having blood doped. And then the next day. George pride ler 'em who would for group home after J last year unfor- teams on web before police child's pronunciation Gail. Yeah. Well, yeah. Yeah. I think that he's one of those guys who when asked introduce himself said his name, George. I think he's demonstrated. You can't believe. But some we'll translate their name to the pronunciation, you know, of the country of the person. I m sorry, George m mean, a very bad week for cycling podcast peddler sharp award. Both former winners, we'll former winners. And what do we do? There's no protocol for this. We don't know whether to revoke it. Send them each a jiffy bag requesting the the garment be posted by anyway. And what happens when one of them post a picture on social media? And if you days reclining on his Hsieh's long looking up marring Lee is framed well pedal show, there was a a really arresting for graph of one of the cross country skiers call mid blood transfusion, which I just the the the banality of it was just shocking these enough of hotel room with his arm kind of having blood either taken or put back in that was leaked by the police officers shouldn't have been e can't unsee the picture. And it was a really shocking. Photograph em. I'm imagining a similar photograph of somebody wearing appellate Sean t shirt. It wouldn't be a good luck with it for peddler Ducharme. So we'll have to go back and look are protocols for peddler, Sean. But it is a shocking story because those are perhaps to the writers you made this. Point on Twitter. Daniel you, you can never know obviously, pride learns in particular. He's reading for a team son web that really defines itself almost by its ethical policy, and I spoke to Larry war bass on Monday, his former Akwa blue sports, he may of Dan film. It's quite good friends with him. He was even more shocked by the pride ler revelation because again, he felt like he was somebody. He knew little bit very friendly and educated guy, and one of the last people he would have expected to be blood-doping. I think I'm not putting words in his mouth. That's not what he said. You know, he knows them better than we do the identity of these two writers is is particularly shocking thing. Well, I mean Dennis field. You back that thrilling stage. He won in the welter in twenty seventeen loss metro cost finished, really state concrete up hill. Finish where he was holding off Alabama come to dramatically giving blue state winning their first grand tool, obviously, then the twenty thousand nine season forty I quickly riders was one of disappointment off disappointment really very little in the way of real elite racing for those writers. And then Denna, Phil. Got a contract with ceasing C which has risen from BMC racing. Now Sunday morning. I went to find Jimoh vich the boss of the CCC team just to get his reaction. And this is what he said I heard about it last night. Actually, some report was out about the some investigation that went on in Australia with other sports, and somehow he was involved in it as a cyclist. So that I heard about it last night. So when he said he was not going to take place with the team. I mean, what was that conversation like and? I can't go a word for word. But I, but it was basically a family issue that he was having. I didn't go in a lot of detail because family is not my business sports as my business. He's just said he couldn't couldn't continue his racing career. He had family issues that he had to deal with. And I accepted that is reasonable Asian. And so from your point of view, are you glad that the team wasn't call. Doc in this. Well, come on. To ask that question. Of course, we don't we don't condone anything like that. We would never want to be involved in. We were not involved in ever did any. He never had any activity with us at all zero in terms of doing your due diligence on signing ride. I mean, did you look biological data? And everything we are medical team examines that we look at background. We never heard of any issues ever had as a racer and he's been racing for more. These not not a rookie. He'd been racing on other teams. He came from teams that competed in events that we competed in he never had an issue that we knew of. So there was no red flag that that went up and said, oh, boy, we better not sign this guy that were you because obviously he was up to no good. And there was no red flag. I can't answer that because I don't really know the details of what what he was accused of or what you might be involved in. So that's that's that's not a question I can answer. And finally in terms of the impact on team and on the. Sport. I mean, he's not currently racing. So minimize the reputational damage, but every time the narrative is it's one bad apple. But every time that this this the sport reacts in the same way. Oh, it's another bad. I I mean. Do you think they sit indicative of why it's going on inside two teams at the moment. Or is it of course, not it's got nothing to do with the world tour team. You never got there. So. And I really don't know what he's even accused of or what he might have been involved in. So I think you have to go through that that process first before you start throwing thrones throwing, you know, innuendos or or criticisms about world tour cycling because it has nothing to do with it. I think the interesting thing from of each savage the sense was, you know, the team wasn't tainted by this because he never got to pull on jersey or vici, whether he's he's point of view that NFL out his contract for personal reasons. No, real indication's to doubt vich on that. But when I then asked whether they says anything about the culture within the world tour, and okay, rich. Well, do you do you even have to ask that question? Well, clearly twenty four hours later, we know that well to writer pride LA riding Groupama F D J caught up in the same blood doping, scandal and. And so who knows anything who who really knows anything? Do we do? We take off of his word and say, well, he knows he's knows nothing or I mean, this is this is the big puzzle. For me. I, you know, I mean, I mean, I think it's it's a massive moment in the history of of the recent history of anti doping and doping psych me in the sense. That two thousand two thousand eleven was the last time we had any real major evidence of I'm blood transfusions taking place that was when the talian Roger Ricardo Ricco was exposed as having tried benefit DIY blood transfusion and prior to that, of course, we'd had importer in two thousand six, but since then that been nothing of that nature, you know, we'd had a sort of semi regular series of positive tests repeal, but we've said many times in the last couple of years, we we've very unclear about what's going. On nothing. I was contacted spontaneously by couple of writers over the weekend. And they said how shocked they wear and they wondered whether they'd be naive because they thought that the blood transfusions were were probably a thing of the past at least as far as the the the vast majority of the the proton even all of the peleton was concerned. I think part of the reason why people were under the opera -hension was that it was so traumatic. When those revelations about oppressing, Puerto Rico, and and even two thousand eight with Bernard co when those revelations were made it was so sort of squalid, I think, you know, as well as the peleton general just cleaning itself up. There was a feeling that they would never go back that we would never Plum those debts again. And if that was going to happen. It certainly wasn't going to be to sort of charming well-spoken, seemingly upstanding guys like gale, proudly and Stephan dental pride lahood ridden rich as you said for team son Webb who almost become notorious for 'em for the severity of that checks and surveillance on their right to the extent where they they've been reports stories about them even checking their riders belongings to to make sure they hadn't. Ambro typing products with them to racist. I think it's huge. And it does it does raise massive questions. What's going on now? And it raises them. Sorry. On that we should say that if we're to take pride. His word includes a problem with that he says that he had blood removed in twenty eighteen money was Groupama after Jay right or not the he is not sad. Certainly the he was doping when he was out teams on web. So. You know, you could certainly if you were you could say well, and they're they're controls in their checks and their balances my words as far as we know. But on that point one hundred percent on that point. I knew I mean all kovic on the one hand saying they don't do diligence on Denzil checked out by possible. Data hadn't seen any red flags. And then when this comes up still maintaining confidence in both their checks and the biological possible. I mean, it called all it doesn't stack up. 'cause I mean, that's clearly what gaps in the system here which can be exploited. And you know, the the trick wire is not being tricked. Well, just a bit of history on that line on the politic possibly it was launched in waves adopted by cycling two thousand eight it was dominated by the federation's after that. But I think gradually people have come to realize that it's not foolproof, and and they're all ways that you can get around the biological possible. I mean, five months after it was launched in two thousand eight UCI came out and said, they already monitoring Twenty-three right is although Twenty-three riders whose profiles, warranted extra surveillance. And I think that created the expectation that this was going to be this sort of secret weapon that was going to take out all of the cheats in the peleton. It was going to completely radically. Not only blood-doping also EPO doping. And I think over time I think the UCLA themselves want an the public with them have come to realize that it was never going to be that we should never have had those expectations. It's been an. Incredibly useful to it served to inform the UCI and really form that target testing. And have you speak to people who have intimate knowledge of how the possible works? Now. They say that. Has yielded a law in terms of the positives that it healed it because rights have been targeted on the basis of their of their possibles. But as far as transfusions are concerned, autologous, transfusions, transfusing and one's own blood. And they've realized I mean, I spoke to someone as intimate knowledge of how it works couple of years ago and one big problem. They they've recognized is that the physiology of professional scientists is quite different reacts quite differently to that of other athletes, and the one main reason for that is something which doesn't exist in other stage racing five six seven hours of stress on on an athlete's body every day. I've repaired days. In grand tours, three weeks, and this really wreaks havoc with blood values and an expert ability to read and interpret the blood values in it, particularly creates problems for something called plasma volume. Plasma is basically the white sort of the the tippy tap stuff in the blood, the wishy washy. Yeah. It doesn't do a whole lot. But it skews them he mcclogan, and it makes it very difficult to read. And this is something that came to light when Raymond Kreutzer wars one, right? Who was initially fingered for his biological passport in for values in into grand tools, actually in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. And it was in around about two thousand four team when the and the arbitrator was taking place, and this was one of the issues that was raised. It was it was very very difficult to see what was going on there. And there is a school of thought that the UCLA in particular burned by the cross get case. And VERA off the not been many cases brought in reality. The want many cases brought before that I've been a law in track and field up to the start of two thousand sixteen. There was something seventy cases in track and field as against about thirteen in professional cycling. But again, you untold is not has a lot to do with the increased difficulty of reading cyclists profiles, the been various other problems to do with it. I think that they all the federation's of did to the past from data management to be a big problem. Huge numbers of these blood profiles and very difficult to. To process it very difficult to read it. And I think as time has gone by. As I said, initially, the realization has really sunk in that this is this is a tool that can be used almost as an investigative tool rather than something that's going to catch people per se. And you know, I think it's led indirectly to to some very good things, for example off to the courts to get case the UCI setup the which is the psyching anti-doping foundation because they didn't want national federations to be deciding on sanctions anymore. They wanted to have control of that himselves. There was another development shortly after that whereby they award introduced some thing a regulation whereby sixty percent of all tests in certain sports insurance sports had to be to be screening for. Wreath. Reprocess stimulating agent so substances like EP, and again, this is something that's how to the contributed to more riders athletes being caught but not strictly speaking directly via the biological passport. And and I think you know, there is a feeling that blood transfusions. Could if the will is there still present a major problem, and the thing here is again, it's not the sporting authorities of. British to lie. It's a police investigation, which is blowing the lid on this. And we we now wait to see whether this is a tip of a more significant iceberg weather. Well, reports are that more athletes from a number of sports might Welby implicated in this one thing is slightly different to the two thousand six blood-doping two hundred sixty thousand seven two thousand eight which was really the kind of. Well, it was it was the watershed. It was the watershed wasn't. It was it was well it was year after year of really significant scandals in sing dozens of writers there's a different response from the peleton. I mean Marsh L kit, for example, a very strong piece on his blog, which was suddenly worth the read posted in English as well as in German, and that's not really something that we saw ten years ago is it with a response ten years ago toward this was everyone pretty much the hedge down. And I don't know again, this is just purely sort of a sense of feeling, but it's it kind of shocked me really that this this could be going on with writers who they well. They came to the sport long after two thousand eight two thousand seven they should should have been products of a different generation and yet. This kind of behavior as its tentacles stretched into the score again, whether whether or not even went away, it could be the parameters of narrowed the window of opportunity is smaller than before. But they're still plenty of opportunity for unscrupulous behaviour to go undetected. Well, we'll keep an eye certainly on the Austrian blood-doping story. And we do I think wouldn't be surprised if more names. But it's one we're going to be covering and talking about 'em, probably at least the next few weeks. But that's all for this week. I think Lionel thank you very much. Thank you very much, Richard. Thank you. Daniel. Thank you chaps. Just before we go this week.

Saving the Last Rainforests - One Acre at a Time. Interview with Danny Blue from One Million Acres

"And Welcome to sustainability explored podcast where I unfold with the help of my brave and curious guests from around the world, how Sustainability Practices are integrated into business operations in various industries? My name is Anna and I'm an environmentalist sustainability consultant and the host of this very show today we have an amazing interview coming up about a super interesting social enterprise initiative aimed at protecting one million acres of critically endangered rainforest, some of the Earth's most valuable resource. While empowering indigenous artisans to rise out of poverty. I invited denny blue, the owner and founder of one million acres or all month for short. For an interview to share his ideas and messages with the wider audience. With the goal of protecting one million acres by twenty, twenty three. Dany and his team are literally on a mission to save the world. I'm thrilled excited and honored to have Danny with us to date can't wait to start our interview, but before we do start. You can use this moment to subscribe to the podcast to always be up to date, and maybe even the one step ahead been anyone else was the sustainability news. End Innovations across countries and industries. Alright. Let's dive writing into our episode. Hi Daddy thanks for joining me today at sustainability explored weekly show today. We're GonNa talk about your initiative. Old One million actress so Danny. Blue is my guest today. He owner and founder was amazing initiative or social enterprises. You mentioned it in one of our emails. With a mission of protecting one million actress of endangered rainforest while also empowering indigenous people. Of First of all. How far are you in this gold out of one million accurate? Where you now. Well first off. Thanks for having me I really appreciate it. It's really great to connect with other people who are inspired and care about topics like this so so much. I definitely have a much better understanding. How big of a number one million is now? Because I think we really just starting out a lead so far been able to help fund the protection of about ten thousand acres of rainforest, which is pretty amazing I mean when you think about just the perspective of it, but long way to go out. One million acres is really almost kind of just the first milestone. Anyway, the goal is to really build this movement out into really champion a sustainable way to have a rainforest conservation happening on a regular basis for quite some time. Did You Start Your Sustainability Journey? You're based in California now. What was your I dunno alight. What was your event? That triggered you other good question? I'm not sure if I had a particular Aha moment as far as starting me off in my sustainability journey in particular, I mean like you said I am in California. There's all kinds of things always happening around here with. The green movement and even seeing the state initiating policies around getting rid of plastic bags in then. The different forms of electric transportation starting to pop up here and there. been surrounded by it for quite some time, but I will say that I'm not the typical person that you know came out of the womb with the mission to be in the Green Movement, and has been doing something like this entire life always knew from a kid that I was destined to do something within the environmental movement as a matter of fact. kind of the opposite up until maybe seven years ago, I was living pretty traditional life as far as American standards. Go working this corporate job making really great money living down by the beach in Venice United Really, great. Setup by had money for savings was traveling. It's your biggest those perfect and I just I really wasn't fulfilled. There's something in. It sounds so cliche. You hear so many people have the story, but there was something really deep in me. That made me realize like I can ride this out for as long as I. Want I want you know I'm not even having to work too hard. A lot of my money that make this job was residual. There is something just wasn't fulfilling about it. Dad was probably if there was a catalyst for me going out seeking something else whatever that was, that was probably the spark. That had me kind of leaving on this journey. Are you familiar with the book or it's a study actually written into a book called. DRAW DOWN BY PAUL has. been called the most comprehensive study on an. On climate, change and various different. Ways that we have opportunities to help combat itself. talks about all of the different things that we as humans are participating in that are contributing to a degrading planet climate, utilizing resources faster than we can replenish them, and I think when I came across the. Study in that blood. That was what really I got me interested in a sustainability, I was blown away to learn about certain things like food waste in how food waste is one of the leading contributors to climate change, and not even just amount of food that we scrape off of our plate into the trash. But how much energy it actually takes to raise from the ground, and send it there and send it. Parents ended here processes. Get played. You know so that was I think maybe one of the first things I learned about. That really got me interested in wanting to know more about other things that may contribute to this I was already very passionate about outdoors in nature and contributing as a personal donor to organizations that help protect the rainforest. His love animals large number of endangered animals actually. Call the rainforests home I was constantly connected in that way, but then seeing how deforestation in the forest was also listed in the list of draw down as one of the leading causes of I'm a- change that was probably what started me on the journey of wanting to see what else is there as far as like. How else could I help over on just my own personal view, Sion's right, and why rainforest in particular you could have started with anything locally based, but safe food way tonight. Writer. You leave white rainforests so far away. Far Away. It's there was something that was calling me. Deeper than what would be received is just like a conscious awareness. I. Just I felt this calling It was like a romantic of the rain forests in you know all the documentaries. I watched always be very drawn to the rainforests episodes in just the abundance of life and these ecosystems, and just the sheer amount of diversity that exists in the ecosystems into just watch. It was really the nature documentaries in shows it really old ended. See these other planets almost thriving in this way, whereas literally life, it is just expressing itself in all forms, and so I just was always very drawn to it I. Don't know if I realized at that point. I felt like I was directly connected to. It 'cause yet. The rainforests have a little bit of outta sight. OUTTA mind. For, so our away, people don't make all it's affecting me. But it was again through my pursuit of learning more about that through these different studies through these matters realizing how connected we all really are, and how actually dependent we are on these ecosystems, it may not be in our backyard, but are just as important, if not more so to our survival so true. I've been to Brazil in December last year for Holden's Yes the first episode I released. This year was about. Amazon rainforest, whereas in three days only three days, but it. It completely blew my mind. I I know I saw what we're talking about what we are GonNa talk about. December was just the start of the rainy season, and our local guides told us that. If you come in June July, the water level will rise so much that you will see all this diversity this loss. The Jaguars Everyone Seton just on the top of the crowns of the trees. But also the the time where they're most mosquitoes. We've been Lucky Barrett for malaria, is she? Anyway so it wasn't mind blowing experience when I realized people lead everywhere. Why would you leave so far away from the closest? Because Ceti whatever can happen to you? You need a dentist. broke leg. Why are you so far away? Why don't you wait until the somewhere? where it's more convenient at the same time. I think I understood why we someone. This natural. Probably a little, a little bit romantic component to it where you just get hooked. where. Did you start with the rain? When was your first trip well? The first rainforest I went to was actually Costa Rica a long time ago. This was before I think any like direct connection I had to the project itself. But the first time I went down to the Amazon was in Peru. Somewhat more for just like a recreational trip, but I was also already starting the process of wanting to learn more about some opportunities that in ways in which I could help with this project that had already started to happen, so that was the first. It was really though it was my trip to Ecuador. Went down to Ecuador not had an opportunity to go. Stay in a couple of villages of some of the indigenous communities out was the spark like that was really the catalyst for creating this opportunity creating this initiative with Alma one million acres to create a project that could help. It was at that point where I learned that the lack of economic activities or these indigenous communities is actually one of the biggest things that driving deforestation. You wouldn't think like it back. Directly would be responsible, but the fact that there's just not a lot of economic opportunities leads a lot of these indigenous communities, often time to have to find other ways to support themselves, and you wouldn't think of indigenous communities is people that would participate in logging or even working with the oil companies, but unfortunately a lot of times. That's that's what happens. You just reminded me our point of departure to the depths of the Amazon was the city of Manaus. A might be mistaken, so we have to double check, but it seems to meet for the capital of the state of Amazon list in Brazil. And what's you know drew my attention. was that in the city of analysis which is very industrial, and you see kind of headquarters of Siemens. Who Away Phillips some big names and we as our guide? Why is it the case why not Sao Paulo? I not ready your dishes. He said to keep people busy to distract them. From deforestation's to to pull them towards this prices to to give them job to give them work and yeah, that was surprising to note. A big corporations decided to stay there. It's a little bit hard to travel because it's not A. Transportation not but yeah, that was the case in so Ben. You decided to do something about rainforests and protects nonetheless end. How exactly while so you know like I? Said I was already personally involved in supporting some organizations that were doing this work. So the what the main organization that we support through Omaha is called rainforest trust, and they are one of the highest ranked charities on charity navigator, which is a third party company bit that rates various different charities. Charities based on their transparency and their effectiveness efficiency with their fine, so it's a really great way to see who it is that your you know donating your money to. If you want to support organizations like this, and they've been doing this for twenty five years in, they have a very specific system where they go in purchase, these big lots of land and they put it into a trust it's. Owned by the locals in the bay use additional resources to create jobs in education systems for the locals so that they know how to protect it. It's not just buying the land. Then walk away, and then maybe it's just. GonNa be destroyed. So I was already donating to them in what I saw was that for a very little amount of money every month by donating I was able to help fund the protection of quite a bit of land, and there was a moment where I realized that the opportunity here for this business could not only be like buy a product and will donate a portion to the rainforests stress in you can help protect this many acres of rainforest or this much land, but the real opportunity was. Create Economic Opportunities for the indigenous communities find a way to give them work. Create something through that product could be sold, and then a portion of the proceeds could be donated rainforest stress it almost kind of creates a compound effect where by creating the economic opportunities in the jobs for the indigenous communities were already building a system to promote conservation into combat deforestation to stop a lot of the people that would normally go into these other areas that are that are causing deforestation. Ban, on top of that, we also take a portion of those proceeds support rainforest stress. We have another organization that we support now on one tree planted so it also refunding the planting of a tree, so have this comprehensive approach now so it's a bracelet that we've created with the indigenous artisan communities, so every has a three tiered impact approach so the each race that is creating new sustainable job for the artisan and a portion of the proceeds from goes for its protecting one acre of rain forest. Resource Dress in additional portion does the planting of a tree in the same area so now it's Kinda like this really. A comprehensive approach where we're protecting I were reinforcing areas that have already been damaged, and we're building out a whole economic ecosystem in this area to really try and maximize the amount of impact. You can have with with this model. How is it for the charity for this organization to work in by the way which country? Where have you started in Ecuador Ecuador is worthy. Artisans are that we work with the conservation efforts that we're supporting our in both Peru and Ecuador. It's all in the Amazon region right now. So how easy is it to keep this goal win? As an organization is a trust, our regarding the political situation I'm thinking about Brazil and older corruption scandals. In the fact that the you know. The president gave literally the green light for logging deforestation, this agricultural exhibits burning off the land for agriculture beef production on so. In a meat exports. What other challenges in where your organization is raising while, yet it's a real issue, definitely a little bit more of a higher level station that I think that organizations like rainforests dress probably have a little bit more visibility into the specifics of it I imagine in countries like Brazil. There's definitely always going to be you know some more challenges I mean. There's challenges everywhere in Ecuador. They have a lot of stuff. Going on in their political landscape is well. The whole thing is about money, and that's what it comes down to, and there's still a lot of work to be done in that realm of creating additional protections, putting protections in place for the indigenous communities themselves, but also for these lands, but the one thing I will say is the system that they've created through rainforest trust to be able to have these plots of land purchase in protected that they're paying for these large. You know lots. It's not like you just by in Acre. Another acre by Acre to get another. They have these large multi million acre plots of land that are being I guess technically auctioned off so i. don't know the full specifics of whether or not. The systems are being put in place that are given full legal protection from a lot of the illegal stuff that's happening, but I do know that they do have it worked out in a way where they're working locally any of the areas that they're working on with these campaigns. They're working with many of the local on the ground grassroots. That are directly connected with the people in the government in those areas, so there are systems in place to have as streamlined process possible to have these areas protected in the best way possible but again. At the end of the day we never really now with what's really happening at the top of the chain, and with all the issues around money, especially people without opportunities. There's always gonNA. Be Concern with. How do we make sure that once these this land is purchased in protected that it's truly it's protected in perpetuity so part of that I. Think is also in the model that rainforest trust has which involves educating and employing in. In staffing a lot of the local communities in ways in which they can continue to support conservation again. It's really making sure there's like a maintenance system. Set up there so that it's not just left alone. If somebody did come in and try to do illegal logging in those areas that there would be somebody there to help mitigate it. Yes, so typically about collaboration on all levels, the governance local governance. This trust the people. Tell me more about how it works, so people are mostly occupied with making this bracelets. How much do they lost? The bracelets are twenty four dollars. We actually just got done doing a crowdfunding campaign for them. As a matter of fact, there's a host crowdfunding pre-sale sale. Hey Dj that still upright now until I don't know, we may run for another couple of weeks. We were running a crowdfunding campaign overselling the bracelets for twenty dollars, so they're still available for that once the dust settles from the crowd funding campaign. This is really more to raise all of the funds for this. And then once we move it over into our just are online store retail store. The are normal retail cost will be twenty four dollars. So this bracelets a made on onslaught in Ecuador were. And then someone is she condemn across the globe? Yes, so the bracelets are handmade in the thing about the bracelet. I wanted to make sure that it wasn't just another thing. You know there's a lot of companies it anywhere. You look online now. Everybody's got some kind of social. Give back model, and it's become so ingrained into our culture. It is a lot of people that use greenwashing in a way to just say well. We're just going to either say we're going to give to this cause or give to this cause, but the thing that we're doing in itself is a little detrimental, so you'll see that a lot of times where there's companies that are doing just like some may be made in China plastic. John Visit is ultimately just gonNA end up in a landfill, and so you have to really kinda consider with projects like this. Is this taking the entire life cycle of the business into consideration? So that was a big thing that it was really on my mind when I was creating this, which is why the bracelet we've created with the indigenous communities is made entirely of organic materials that are sustainably sourced from the Amazon. So the bracelet itself is actually biodegradable. It's only made from two materials. One is called tug Wa, which is a nut that grows on the palm trees in Ecuador, and the other is called Tom Bureau with is it's a leaf that just comes off palm trees in. They'll take these little fibers off the. Role in their hands and it suds completely natural die all kinds of different colors, so it's amazingly. Both the and the bureau can be made into literally any color under the sun all from natural vegetable dyes. The entire bracelet is completely organic. It's a great -able. The artisans will make you know everything by hand there than have everything shipped to me here in the states in the of shipping everything out from here I'm still somewhat in the beginning stages of learning the challenges of International, because we actually have a lot of support from our crowdfunding campaign. A big majority of the people that have come in to support the campaign have been from overseas. We've had like France. UK Ukraine Netherlands Australia I mean there's people from all over the world that are really supported, which is really amazing to me, but it's also making me realize like. I'm. GonNa have to get a pretty good. Grip on understanding what the shipping restraints, or or whatever might be I guess I'll find out soon enough because there's always the issue of additional customs and VAT taxes and stuff like that, but in the meantime I'm just moving everything. ORDEN excited that it's really kind of become global, a global movement and global initiative somewhat overnight over the asthma, which is really exciting. I guess why the queue when people donate the transparency, people want to be sure that their money's used to appropriate 'cause. Have you had any one? I Dunno asking you about. Can you show me pictures. Can you walk me through what you're doing? Oh, yeah, as a matter of fact I, literally just responding to somebody recently is I I'm berry transparent throughout the crowd funding campaign on sharing updates news in making sure people see that we are directly connected with organizations that were contributing to as vetted, verified or sponsors partners on their website is well I understand. There's a lot of people that get burned. Burned online from people that don't have integrity. An integrity is the number one core value a house for this project I. Would you know do things the way that has integrity over the easy way any day? As recently had somebody who all of a sudden started putting comments in started sending messages link sent about ten messages in the matter of I. Don't know a couple hours all of a sudden This is a scam. That, we're based in Canada and we're I. Don't remember the nature of it. It was berry out of the blue. But it was all completely false. None of information that was being said was It makes me realize there's one of the most important pieces, and there's always gonna be people that are concerned because there are scams like that are happening so the best thing that I've been able to do until this point is just to be in communication in constantly trying to provide updates with people on where everything's out of the project. Making sure that again people can go directly to the. Page to see US listed. There might go as they continue to grow. This is to ideally grow into a certified. Be Court. which will allow us to have more channels of transparency into the supply chain? One of the other things that I've been taking the extra step four is had the whole project vetted through an organization called the World Fair Trade Organization Day. Make sure that out projects like this for their integrity with using fair trade practices. So I've taken. Many of the steps that I can to really ensure that people know that there is integrity at the heart of this project, but I also realized that might okay. I get to understand that. I am committing to fact that are going to be people that no matter what I do. No matter. How good a you! It will come out of nowhere. Tell me that it's a scam and I had to like really reconcile that. Do I want I want to do this like do I want. Am I ready prepared to like I really impassioned about this? I really want this project work, but am I. Prepared for you know the toll on my own personal. Mental. Side of things because I will just art the process and I think that's that's the case with anything. Matter what you're involved in no matter what you do, there's always gonna be people that just simply don't believe I. Think did a project like this is GonNa? Take on even more of that. I have been myself out there for almost a year now and there are always people who say knowing your line. No, it's not to what you say in December we. We had a very nice talk with more a ton of. A former, probably you know her former science communicator from NASA. She is by the way might be your neighbor somewhere in California. She I think she's from the base of the right now and She expressed one interesting thought. She says you know. How much time does it take? A scientist to. To to set up an experiment to collect all the data to run, it's the stats to come up with this study to write it down to correct to add into peer review before something released into into the world. And how much does it take a climate denier? But we were about. Climate issues. How much time does it take a climate denier to one? Comment you're. So, yeah just. Keep doing what you're doing and. Everything else will follow in needs to people like that are everywhere another thing. I wanted to ask you. This is the question that was retained in my head for a while when I am trying to expand every plastic item you tape is GonNa end up. You never know where how do you explain people who are not from South America, who are not leaving in the rainforest, so Europeans Americans norse Americans. That rainforest is you know? Is it common issue of everyone who's leaving on planet earth how to educate people in this regard? Yeah, that's one of the most. Important topics or projects like this how to get people to care enough of because at the end of the day. Compassion is an amazing. Attribute that a lot of us have, but as humans we are very self serving and no matter, even the most compassionate us end of the day. We're very. Much fueled by our own personal. Desire to survive and thrive, and so there does need to be some sort of a personal connection, and I think that you know people really just need to understand what really is the opportunity that's being given to each and every one of us right now with Corona Virus I. Mean You and I are sitting here speaking across the world. And we're literally experiencing the same exact thing granted. We have different elements to it within our own regions, but like we're all going through this global be set a way that everybody's connected, and so I think it's very important for people to understand that this whole thing is enacted. We are all connected in a much more profound way than we understand. Especially when it comes Amazon rainforest, they call the Amazon, the lungs of the planet or reason, the sheer amount of not only oxygen trees create which a lot of people will argue that the vast majority of the oxygen that's created in the Amazon is just immediately consumed back into the ecosystem, so we can't count it towards our own oxygen, but the reality is the whole system is such a living breathing ecosystem in all of the carbon. It's being. Being stored within the ecosystem within these rainforests is massive too, and it's the thing that I don't think people realize that all of this carbon. The trees store is being held contained from the atmosphere. As soon as you cut these trees down, that carbon is just released back into the atmosphere people to understand that it's not just about well all weather. Not these trees will create oxygen that is necessary for me to breathe, but it's seeing it as like. If you, look at the whole year yourself. The whole earth is your body, and you think about one of your lungs is about to fail and go out. We would be pretty concerned. The rest of our body is going to be affected by that and I think that's the understanding that people really need to start taking into consideration over beyond that anyone at all that has any attachment that cares about animals that loves animals. Animal rights advocates people that love to champion you know. Know Animal Rights Protection of endangered species. The protection of the rainforest is probably one of the most comprehensive ways to protect as many species as well in a quick amount of time I mean the staggering amount of species that live in rainforests that we're losing on a daily basis because of conservation, I'm because of deforestation, uniting the estimates are somewhere around along the lines of over one hundred species every day are going extinct, not just animals, but of insects ants of all of this. bio-diverse life is going extinct. Yes, there's direct relation to the health of our planet with the health of rainforests that impact everyone, but also just the survival of all of these other amazing species that are also necessary. The continue this web of life and. Support the growth of these networks of life within the musical systems. There is another aspect I wanted to share. The aspect related to land use and that I read a study recently a study on how land use. Is, improper land use can trigger release of various viruses in what we are living through is one of. One of those examples because they're still not sure that. COVID nineteen related. Well loan market. One hundred percent. That's definitely one of the yeah. I'm glad you brought that up me. Not Probably one of the most valid and relevant topics that people should be aware of nowadays, it's huge, you know as we continue to encroach on these these ecosystems and Pushed further and further into these wild animals territories. Yeah, we are opening ourselves up. More more to be exposed to these zoonotic diseases, it will just continue these pandemics. These unknown viruses will continue to be an issue as long as we continue to keep pushing into these into these ecosystems in in disrupting the wildlife habitat for shore guy. Breath that I didn't even think about that, but that's that's probably one of the most important in directly relatable issues. That is happening right now. Meanwhile were there'd people who for example said. Here I am I want to donate, but don't send me anything like. I don't want anything I. Just believe you trust new and. Yet there are. Again because integrity is such an important piece of the WHO I am as a person how I operate I, send those people. If anybody just wants to donate to the cause itself I, usually direct people to the organization to rainforest stress in all usually say you can donate directly to the organizations themselves to help protect as much land as possible because our project is not only in support of the conservation reforestation efforts, but it's also in creating these these job. Opportunities are indigenous ours. I am also. Considering figuring out some additional opportunities that we can build your own model that people can still do the donation directly to us without receiving anything cutting down even more on their carbon footprint with lack. Any products in anything like that in which we would still donate to the organizations, but then we can also contribute the funds the additional directly to these indigenous communities, so it's still helped impact them directly without them, actually having to pick anything, so that's down the road, and hopefully at some point sooner than later. To wrap up this interview. Do you have one piece of advice? Release nurse, something you could. Say. Would benefit from Julian or redon or thinking about. The book I mentioned earlier the study. You don't even have to get the whole book. I would say studied. Draw down, it's very. It's very comprehensive, and there's a lot of data and. Statistics and stuff, so it's a lot to just the. It's like the list of the top one hundred solutions to combating climate change I would say. That's one of the best things that everybody can just take a look at just understand his. Every time, somebody looks at that list and understand in talks about it with another person. All of a sudden people are starting to learn more and people are starting to learn. What are the ways that we can each individually help combat climate in animal. Soon as you see you know you read about the food waste thing in you see the different connection to how much energy it takes just to eat, food makes you start to wonder maybe this whole growing my own food, or at least buying locally or buying in season is really not such a bad idea in. It's really not such A. hippie concept, it's more. Everybody should really start taking on so I think that's a really great place to start. Because not one thing, it's just more of like an understanding of a bunch of different things people can do and then I think that just really just feeling into how the connection with all of us. I think that compassion in on just this project people just starting to learn how to just have more compassion. Compassion for each other and realized that we all are going through this and that we all are connected. I feel that is the real were for us. Is Humanity as we move into? What is next phase of human evolution looks like is to have a greater understanding, a greater awareness of how weekend respect each other more and have compassion for other more in that in turn will give us the ability to want. To be inspired to help, do things that are in support of the collective more than just a wall, all plan a tree in my own yard. Because then I'll get the fruit from it versus I'm in this with everyone else together. In what ways can we come together and help for the greater good? One last question. How did condemning change the state of art the closure of borders? What's going on there now? Yeah, well, everything is closed right now. As a matter of fact I just got a message from my point of contact who she's the one that I'm working directly with. She's taking the lead on it. She sent me a message that one of the villages that we are working with has just had their first. Case of Corona virus that showed up and she's. She's twenty one years old woman. That had A. So I'm still waiting to see how this unfolds, but it's serious because you know in these indigenous communities, they're far away of any big cities, even real potential medical assistance. They're definitely much more vulnerable and susceptible. It's real. It's definitely slowed things down as far as like the process for the project the operation. It's definitely you know the timelines of cash, but it's just caused me to just again. Be More in communication with our people I think for the most part people understand. There's a lot of people that are saying the united support. Where's my bracelet and again? I? Don't think there's. Just a lack of understanding of how the whole thing works my hope is that as the dust settle. The next month or two maybe. Things will slowly start to open back up, but knows I mean I have a feeling. Everything's GonNa. Be Different in some capacity for a long time. Well hopefully I'll. Wasilla will get out of this crisis better than we entered it. That's the goal. Thanks so much for your time and this interview and or sharing your wisdom. In your experience with the one million at curse. My pleasure, thank you so much for having me on. Thanks Chad. this land use study that I was looking for and mentioned you're in the interview is called Infectious Disease Emergence and economics of altered landscapes final report, the document was produced for review by the US AID RDA so regional development mission for Asia. From US aid and the suggested citation is Edco Hells Ellen's of to southern. Nineteen Infectious Disease Emergence and economics of altered landscapes. This is how you can find the paper. It's a it's a PDF report the. Can Be downloaded at Equal Hal Stellian's dot org. Eight pages. Very interesting read to be honest. It covers Malaysia Thailand and Indonesia of the period from October to southern thirteen to February two southern nineteen. and. Not to recite at all, I'd like to. To give you a piece from. One Gabbay it's an environmental media outlet that I follow and can recommend. from the article author by ties, BORJAS and Sue Bradford on April Fifteen, twenty twenty called rapid deforestation of Brazilian Amazon. Could bring the next pandemic so way site in the article in one Gabby in the more. Let's say. Digestible form. Part of the report from equals millions that I mentioned earlier. So this beast goes as follows. It's a citation I'm not changing anything. One way deforestation leads to the emergence of new diseases is through fire in mid August nineteen and Group of international experts on zone Arctic diseases that is illnesses transmitted from any most humans met in Columbia to the lice, the impact of the wildfires when underway in their muscle in their statement they warned the Amazon region of Brazil endemic for many communicable or zone. Not Sick Diseases can after wildfire three selection for survival and Whiz. It changed the habits and behaviors of some animal species. These can be reserve force of zoning bacteria, viruses and parasites. This wildfire scenario has already played out elsewhere in nineteen eighty eight huge fires in Indonesia create conditions allowing the emergence of the night. Virus which has a morbidity rate of between forty percent and seventy percent researchers believe that the outbreak of fires, their cost fruit bats to flee their forest homes, seeking food in orchards. Then peeks ate the fruit that the bats had nibbled become an infected with the virus, ultimately infected law fact in local people who began to die from a brain. Hemorrhage. I'm wasn't. Fires are expected to grow wars as rebuilt. Agribusiness uses it as a tool to clear rainforest, and as climate change into is climate change intensifies. Drought there. So you can see that. The pandemic that we are having this hearing twenty twenty. is also quite possible, possibly related to the changes in land use. This was already the case in Indonesia in nineteen, eighty eight, and if we don't preserve. The rainforest Brazilian part of it `Ecuadorean part of it and so on. we might as well find ourselves facing and other pandemic that this moss probably GonNa be far worse. The one we're facing today.

The people talking on so I I really made an attempt to. Create kind of. Radio piece. An audio Jordan. Hope you. Will you find connections there? And maybe it will complete the puzzle at least a little bit. Will help you understand. The dynamics of the rainforest and other episode that I really really live that. Yeah gives them. A sense of discovery, a sense of joy. About the nature that surrounds us. Is the episode I did with. The Nassar's former climate science communicator Laura Tenenbaum episode is called where the challenges the reason opportunity. I really liked talking to Laura and she was supposed to visit Ukraine in April this year. They remember when we were speaking. I said well. I will certainly be there i. saw it on her website. I will be there one hundred. We will meet in person. And then the pandemic happened and the lockdown, and of course no-one traveled anywhere. So this is also kind of in a way. Related to burn. To to this episode. In the in the in the personal level. Episode from last week if you haven't heard it already with. More on climate, adaptation and resilience in the remote rural areas, and in particular, the islands around the world is also. Nature bio-diversity. Related and I I can certainly suggest you go in listening to that one. Anyway that's it for today. I'd be happy if you connect with meal Leanne Tweeden you can send me your questions.

The show where I talked with artists athletes entrepeneurship visionaries of all kinds about their successes and failures and what they've learned from both breath now when my guess normally join me for interviews at the studios here in Brooklyn that usually don't have to worry that much about their outfits this podcast after all but my guest today showed up in an outfit that was frankly a tragedy to have wasted on a podcast. A floral patterns soaked shirt checkered pants a belt buckle in the shape of a dragon's head and to top it off a pair of oversized snakeskin sunglasses because I was coming to Brooklyn. I wanted to be fancy uh-huh fancy absolutely is that a an original that you're wearing right now. Yes it is it's amazing. Tuesday Detroit took a trade my guest today on the show goes by the name Dapper Dan and that boldly patterned shirt he's wearing he designed it in partnership with the High End Fashion Label Gucci and the fact that he is now at age seventy-five working with a luxury fashion house like Gucci is something that probably no one would have predicted three decades ago. When Dan was in the early stages of his fashion career back then he worked on the fringes of the fashion world in fact for a while he was the Go-to stylist for many of New York City's most notorious gangsters but his early career came to a halt when the world of high fashion the world he now calls home came after him and put him out of business. I talked to Dan about his transformation from a fashion outlaw to Gucci insider from Street Hustler to someone regularly name checked in rap songs Jay Z. Fat Joe Missy Elliott and many others. There's and one of the many things that struck me during the conversation was how Dan Story serves almost as an allegory for the fate of the neighborhood. He's called home his entire. Life Harlem them a neighborhood that was seen as the hub of black culture in New York City then fell on hard times whether the crack epidemic and is now going through another transformation a messy blend of economic development and gentrification Dan Story also charts that epic course and just a quick question before we get started there some swearing in this episode. Dan was born in Harlem in one thousand nine hundred four. GR poor one of seven children. His father only had a third grade education couldn't really read and worked three jobs to make ends meet imitate something one of the turning points in my life was when my father was gonna buy me a suit from Ripley's department store and we went into this store was what was the suit for the Su was for Easter is going to be a eastern charcoal. Brown gray pinstripes and never forget. We get the suit so we release go buy on credit right saw a look at the contract father hair. I said Daddy they charge two and a half times with the soup as just learned how I was in eighth grade onto the eighth grade idea mathematical calculations for interest. It's GONNA cost you to have time for and my father said boy. Don't you know you can read in tears. Wilbur openess is an expression on his face. I could see every day like it happened yesterday. He said boy you could read. Do you know what that means. You <music> offered as he understood the power of information and that's what it was. It was information. I realize how important reading worth US anything that I wanted to be that could free me up from the situation that I'm in with student power reading and so I read my way through everything in everything and out of prison. Dan's love reading served him well in school but it also served him well in another place outside outside on the streets see as a teenager. Dan became enthralled with the neighborhood ICE Games back then. Dan says every two or three blocks in Harlem. You could find groups of men betting adding on dice games and the hustlers trying to take their money. Dan started skipping highschool to try to win money at these games. He learned everything about the dice game that he could. How marks works were called Vicks short for victim. How seven was the likeliest role followed by six and eight now. You're always needed to keep the odds in your favor and a certain point he felt he learned all he could from the streets. What I did was I exhausted all the street education I could get <hes> and then I look for books that possibly would tell me about it right and the books was the master books was Hudson Conman and then for my profession. Which is <hes> cabinet? The World Authority on it on a level that I was was gambling was John Scrawny. John Scotty was there <hes> advisor to United States government on professional gambling in casinos and everything <hes> and he wrote the books folks that will be considered the Bible what books without Oh John Scotty on Cabinet John on dice John's Ghani on cards it this this book was that something that you that was known like no none of the older guys who taught me things ever mentioned that book to me you know and sometime sometimes you you you come across information so amazingly so what's your life like at that point hell purpose alone getting escape poverty yeah so once you hit learned it though they learned it became like a master thaw if you rise to a certain level you become what is known in the street as a sal-. Sal- is a name that derives from the from the Scriptures the Bible as the wisdom of Solomon so the play is looked up to the solves the Saul as king player so I got known in Harlem because of my skills player who became King Saul. I mess at the game so give me an example of like I'm just a regular the person in the neighborhood and I I walked by a crap game and I'm not like A. I'm not a professional. I'm not I'm just like a normal vic vic. I I would definitely benefit as the role. I was meant to play. I'm a big. I just got paid whatever I've got to have some fun. I go how what what what would I do you yeah. What do you do first of all all CON Games right is based on some kind of greed within you right so you use that against the Vix <hes> when you hear gambling that's a misnomer in people's heads because they think that I think is luck. <hes> how Saul's no Galvin's based on the lower probability who would place a bit when the days I come up always wait today's kitchen number and then when he catch the number bedroom he can't make that number all right so people so you'd wait for somebody to get their role they bet and then they get the role that they bet on and so then they collect some money and then you would go up to them and say. I bet you can't do that again. I'll bet you you can't make deputy seven so okay so at this point when you're a saul when you achieved saul all status making like I used to have ten thousand dollars in my sock that was that was the extra so money I have and then have money am pocket just to to entice them to play walking around. You have ten thousand dollars on your person. How does it feel Oughta have have money. Let me tell you something. I'm the first generation of the great migration came from the South and this this is what makes me who I am today. When you look at the slave trade how captured in Africa and then we had to survive the middle passage passage then you think about the three hundred fifty years of slavery is still seventy five years of slavery that they had to endure then you think about the the fact Jim Crow Reconstruction and and I look at my parent's life and I think about what they must have gone through my father's. Whose fault was born a slave fathers born in eighteen ninety eight? That's thirty three years after masterpiece proclamation am my father left home at twelve. Vs Old and he came north to make it on his own wing. I always had henry down cloves holes in my shoes shoes and we had to be innovative and to be innovative. We used to put paper now she and now shoes to cover the whole it said. Do we had to be more innovative because the paperwork to quick and we sell put linoleum so that's who I am so how'd you feel have much secure comfortable but <hes> I think the biggest thing about having money it is transformative things that the money does not just happen what it does. He get you close to get you call to get your shiny things yeah so it's the shiny things in life. If you born with a certain social structure shiny things means a lot because shiny things you can equate yourself with people who have so-called better than you are so the the the Saul period of your life how long that lasts never never say never but we you'd think I'm here by choice think I woke up and said I wanNA hang out with you. I'm solid right right now. It never ends. Maybe an accomplice in this con- you parted the tools of the trade right right now. As you like like Sol's Lou I mean we all. We all saw to some degree. Now we look at your contentious and see how far you got to send your man homeboy saw him in the video game. Dan Kept Solomon the dice game through the sixties and seventies he'd cycle through different corners all through Harlem using probability sleight of hand and loaded dice disadvantage and part of the reason. Dan was winning so much money. Carrying ten thousand dollars around in a sock was was that around this time the heroin trade was booming in Harlem. Money was pouring into the criminal underworld. Sedan wasn't just playing dice against easy marks anymore. He was also playing drug drug. Dealers who had extra cash to gamble is Dan's winnings grew. He was able to start buying the flashy clothes. That seems so out of reach on that shopping trip with his father pretty soon. His outfits earned him the nickname dapper. Dan But dan was also starting to see the darker side of his line of work. His favourite dice partner got addicted to drugs and Dan realized that some of the drug dealers he was hustling. Were betting with money. They owed other people if they lost that money to Dan. You can get killed justified it because even I was on a Spitfire and what I'm saying well. I'm gambling because I know I'm breaking dope dealers in the community. Somebody I'm taking money from bad people in other words. I'm not taking money my ABS upstanding people. You know it's kind of like the Robin robinhood thing. That's what you're telling yourself. I'm that's what I'm lying to myself football so I'm seeing this is transpiring in my life right and I'm and I'm seeing I'm surrounded by. I'm happy with them. I don't like the conversations they have. I don't like the life they lead. I'm I just did break them. You know I'm placing myself in daily. Hell they'll put a say so. I don't really WANNA do that. No more weeding myself off that so also you know what I would do something. That makes people feel feel good and they go hurt. Nobody I rather sell clothes and how Wi clothes why closed because close nothing is more what transformative then that Kinda like Genesis Zeno. Adam messed up got caught first thing he did. He got a loincloth transformation of a new man culpa. Thanks so so this picture. I want to show you the picture of three people in front of in front of a store window. The store window says coming Soon Dapper Dans Ladies and Gentlemen Boutique yes and do remember that picture when pictures taken yes exactly it was hot news working while I was just sitting everything up show modest so I took my suit jacket off and my title so this at this point. How old are you holiday picture. Let me see I got to do the math now. Let's let's see open a store up in nineteen eighty two so I'm like forty around thirty nine forty thirty nine forty in what's your what's your state of mind in this picture you have. It seems like a pretty big smile on your face you feeling I'm feeling like I'm making it happen. I'm I'm making it happen. Man You know that pitcher is beginning of a new episode in my life. Dan opened up the shop hired an in-house tailor to create high end custom other jackets but it wasn't quite the new episode he was hoping for his reputation as a street hustler was still well known around the neighborhood and the drug dealers new. Dan from all those dice games. They quickly became his loyal customers. So many of the middle class professionals in Harlem steered clear of the store and Dan was left to cater to his primary customer base. He kept the store up in twenty four hours a day for hustlers who ended up by after big night out or didn't want to be seen during the daylight. Let hours and business was pretty good but it really took off one day when one of Dan's customers gave him an idea the major drug dealer in Harlem at the <hes> <hes> <hes> Jack's. He's one of the prime customs come to do so one day. He comes in the store and he has a little coach coach. You know like like a fanny pack or like a pack just slightly beginning and nothing one hundred dollar bills in an atom admiring the bag and everybody got excited because it was a Louis Vuitton bag and people with wasn't exposed to that at the time and <hes> and all they've got about the hundreds but they're also excited about the bag that they're in because they know jacket if he must be expensive as Chinese to the shiny shiny do things and yeah so. I looked at their bag. I'll say they excited about that bag. I'll say well that bagging five dollars worth vinyl see what is it about their bag and I'm also reno kind of spiritual books way. You cannot study religion. When I studied symbolism you WanNa go to the roots of religion right so I'll say you know what it's the symbols symbols <hes>. I see imagine if if I can have them walking around looking like that bag them meaning your customers yes when brainstorm took place if they're happy with a little bit of logos symbols. I give them all the symbols in the world. If one is good a lot is better than good and that's the idea south. I'm fine how to replicate them symbols and my own way and tournament two garments which none of them luxury houses was doing <hes> you know so I end up doing is teaching myself how to print on level start teaching myself. Textile printing start going to trade shows that specialize in textile printing reading books on Textiles Excel Sunni everything I could find I go to factories. I did textile printing if they didn't let me in like I waited a close and go through the garbage really actually actually yeah all footwork library work so eventually I taught myself that and you would just by big bolts of leather. What are what are the skill of Japanese plunge love <hes> and what are you printing on it. I'm printing Louis Vuitton and Britain Gucci and Fendi. I'm printing pulledle. Ill anything remains all the major brands now technically. That's a crime right. Did it feel like did it. What did it did. It feel like you missed a history lesson bringing me here. There's a class right like arrived. No do not feel like besides I was using my own creativity and and I was just implementing within my creativity there <hes> trademarks <hes> describe what they look like this to I couple of. Did you see a leopard <hes> and you see the spots. That's what it looked like. Just imagine Alfred as looking like a leopard separate and he got spots all of it and imagine if you never saw before with spots. That's what it was like the store racks at Deborah Dan's filled up with unique Luke sherie creations. You would never find Madison Avenue like reversible coats with mink on one side and leather covered Louis Vitton logos on the other and with major drug doc dealer like Jack Jackson wearing his designs. Dan's business took off he had hire more Taylor's to keep up with demand and then a few years after Dan opened his store crack cocaine hit hit New York City unlike powder cocaine crack was cheap enough for just about anyone to afford and sales of the drug skyrocketed which meant that drug kingpins were even more flushed than before and looking for someplace to spend their growing fortunes dapper. Dans became even more popular only kate into ginks sway so one guy come. They getting ready to go to a major event so he by jackets and stuff for his crew. He's been sixteen thousand. The next coup from his area comes uh-huh. What did he spin. He's been sixteen thousand. It's always been eighteen twenty next crew came. This is actually story. The next next crew came and asked me what they spent. He spent twenty three thousand you know and they're and they're just walking out of business stopped the <hes> who could get the flies who can get the most locals on things you know <hes> it didn't it didn't stop with close it extended to their furniture and cars and whatever they could think of they will say well. He got a cover for his jeep lubaton Gucci. MCI Jeep he someone to do my hokey. Oh Gee how what do you mean do upholstery inside the jeep yes and root for the jeep inside of the Jeep Dole G and now would park my jeep in front of the store. I had originally with ridden white. MCM Interior and red wine mcm roof you know and when you took that roof off ahead a little sun cap and that was written when MCI and I've talked down from the stool and mercedes-benz right and I had that old Gucci doubt and Paul that's amazing. That's amazing advertising yeah. Dan's Taylor's were on call around the clock as dealers tried to one up each other with new custom designs but as crack brought more money to the store it also raised the stakes of the drug trade around Harlem gangs. Were getting more violent. The homicide rate in New York City was on the rise for Dan. This meant that the needs of its customer base were changing and so he adjusted his product line accordingly. I heard there's there's something you had. A garment called the snorkel. Yes this local. Tell me about the snorkel. The snorkel was an amazing because <hes> it was ideal winter coat. You know PSA Puffy coat coat made you feel warm you know and <hes> had like the hood had raccoon really really fluffy raccoon collar and it had the logos. Louis Vuitton logos all over so off Plon J. Level and same colors original Louis Vuitton with chocolate in the Ross in an green lettering you know army green lettering and so it was amazing easing piece of work and not only that for the homeless for extra money our line it inside the line gene. We're bulletproof material yeah so and material that <hes> whenever they came into get them Jacobs I would tell them okay so I wouldn't have no repercussion. Let them go on the roof shoulder material and again. Let him shoot the material really yeah. Could you imagine someone somebody a coat and then they go out and bully through it. No I like for them the low what they had when they leave story because the bulletproof material comes in three levels never one to three so they get a chance to determine you know with with firearms. They think they might need to resist. Wow Wow do you know. Did you ever get word back that it had actually saved somebody's life. I've I've never got the opposite bank so you we we scared ever working with like the clientele you work with all shocks afraid of sharks. You'RE GONNA VIC here so I don't know.

NA member member FDIC walk without fail a my conversation with fashion designer dapper Dan throughout the eighties Dan's business kept growing thing he moved from a simple storefront into a three story building with his own printing warehouse nearby but Dan hadn't just opened the door to make money he'd also seen it as a way to escape the streets. It's on that front. Things weren't going so well at the peak of the store at the peak of the store success on a personal level like what's your life like what where where he hated it why hated it felt trapped. I'm open twenty four hours a day. If you look back in at my pitches I look older than than I do now. Now my grandkids Papa. You look older than it's the state of mind that certain types of spaces. We'll put you what was just dealing with people who are not on the same conservatory plane. You are a man that's taunting. All my friends were major drug truck dealers and so. I didn't have no contact with them even though they was in. NFL socially on an emmy contact with censored lonely it was lonely as hell man it was a it was a bad place you know and it was right at the height the crack epidemic and I'm seeing people being destroyed right in front of my eyes you you know and so on and I saw strike people so close to me that I could no longer trust you know and it was a real really really lonely time for me. Eventually though Dan would find some customers on a similar vibe Tori plane as the nineteen eighties were on hip hop was on the rise in New York City up incoming artists tried to tap into the glamour and grit that they saw on the streets and Dapper Dans Brash designs seemed tailor made for this new cultural phenomenon. Even if Debra Dan himself himself was just waking up to it I grew up in the rock and Roll Calypso Afro Latino Music era so had been familiar with genres of music and and how the volved so when hip hop was starting you know I sort of Bertha benign pay really close attention but the young guys had this to say you know what but it is a sad day night man I can listen to and he used to tell me about the hip hop show and I would listen into with the hip on the radio radio and <hes> only came on once a week and late at night yeah and then they start coming in with the gangsters you know the the rappers they have rally always wanted to be like the gangsters so they will. They started coming in with the Yankees and that's when I saw familiarizing myself with them so when I think the first one came in with L. Cool J gem J run DMC gangsters was by himself so now his shift right so the dock shot gangster the side of the culture imploded and the process hip hop was expanding so now the hippo all the major ones this with the money so they supplanted the Gangsta. Dan embraced his new customer base. He enjoyed talking to these young upstarts musicians and more than it did talking to the street hustlers his favourite he says was Biz. Marquee Dan's clothing designs made it onto the covers of conic records like paid in full by Eric and rock him mm-hmm. It felt like Dan's dream putting distance between himself and the streets was finally reach but then something happened that through it all in jeopardy started one night in one thousand nine hundred eighty when a very famous boxer and a regular dapper. Dan Customer came in to pick up a custom jacket so Mike Tyson <hes> coach at the store aw time now Mike Tyson is the first super athlete of the hip hop era you know right so and he comes from Ralphie Brownsville neighborhood in Brooklyn right yeah so he has the gangster element the hip hop element right. You know he's just super guys so he comes to destroy cool. Guy Minimum Tate friends to this day so Mike Tyson wants to get a jacket. May you know from the popular rap song. Don't believe the hype and and <hes> so I'm making them up because he's is a lot of publicity going on bad publicity so he sing Tao checking. Don't believe the hype so make them up this jacket jacket. He told me he's coming like two thirty in the morning but low behold he comes at three thirty and one of his arch to this day enemy comes in store do Mitch Blood Green and Mitch. Might you know you ain't beat me that night. Man Mike say come on man boxer. They've had a fight and that might I someone to this boxer. Yeah Yeah Yeah so Mike Shake managing. My suchet didn't Mitch Green just get really belligerent in started to store and might just walks out. Mitch Green follows him outside the store and he rips Mike Tyson's side view mirror off the call not just any cau- Rolls Royce and Mike and so you know Mike Tyson knocked him. Industry blazes is the next day is in all the newspapers. Mike Tyson knocks out Mitch Green in-depth Dan Boutique the night manager of Dafur. Dan's Boutique says Mitch Green was looking getting for trouble but a number of nagging questions won't go away. Why was the world heavyweight champion shopping in Harlem for a leather jacket ironically embroidered the phrase don't believe at four o'clock in the morning that was followed by the next Monday the first Monday after that the football and you know how to after area cool up there and helicopter so they cracking a joke or yeah somewhere down. There is w dance twenty four week where Mitch Green knocked out by. Mike now got all this publicity on Monday night football Monday night football. You know that was so sensational. Milan the WHO owned the building. He called me say how'd you do that. How did you arrange for that publicity estimate a range for no publicity. He's a man you you so popular now the people don't we even believe that. I owned the building that you have to store it so this should be a store owner once listening for me it had the opposite and made me the most popular guy in the world in the streets and the most infamous in the fashion world non non on the radio. I was on the radio and that's what may to all the publicity that involve two brands being with the WHO what the hell is adapt. Dan Those brands that were asking what the hell is a dapper. Dan We're seeing in the news footage around this time some of Dan's designs festooned with at their own intellectual property and so dense as companies like Louis Vuitton and Fendi got court orders and started reading Dan Store. What do they do when array. What are they doing? They're just they spread out and take it in commenced to take anything but they would sorta take it just take it off the rack and then put it and and put it in like dental fans they come with little small trucks and you know they go on a raid so lo and behold now. MCM had been written in me which he never rated me MCM radio and leave it on the right but <hes> one occasion when findlay came in the lead as lawyer for Fendi was so my your so do i WanNa just assuming co counsel for the lead lawyer Effendi Effendi when she came in very honestly I gotta give she said some very you know as if it wasn't for them circumstances I would be like really happy could no. She said when she came I had just finished a Akwa schooling type of leather coat with Tuxedo Black Grammont Kala Ella and it was fifty and was plon shade level black on black with black fifty fs all over and she said wow this sky belongs downtown. What do you mean. She said. This belongs downtown was when she ended up with the work that I was doing was. She was amazed by yeah but she couldn't. She didn't take tell but she took everything I had. That's amazing shout out to so new so the these these raids are coming. When did the what did you find that decision to shut down the store so depleted funds over a period of time than res. I had to buy new machines means because they confiscated almost so machines so each time after each raid I had to replenish and over a period of time it took its toll so I decided to go underground.

Dan got back to work started out almost literally where he first began back on the street hustling this time he was selling knock off. Chanel t shirts on the sidewalk and he says its first day out. He didn't sell one shirt. It was a huge blowed was ego going from a three storey building fancy cars out front team of Taylor's to hawking t-shirts off a folding table gradually though he started getting back Kinda feet selling more close and eventually set up a sort of underground design and consulting business that ended up doing quite well. He did that for the next two decades but while he he was out of the spotlight personally his legend was growing the hip hop artists that frequented Dan store had moved further into the mainstream starring in movies TV commercials and they brought along their dapper. Dan Styles Dapper Dan Memories and a funny thing started to happen a whole new crop of hip stars like missy Elliott Fat Joe. Nas it started paying homage to Dan and their music blew my brains the bits from led the posts a shell toes to the Stan Smith today. Dan Kick CEO do connect who peppy great trick thirty some hand me my my name is appearing in all these rap breaks because I'm at the birth the birth of the hip hop era the birth of a new culture you you know and so yeah rapid talking about the birthday hip hop and they all want to connect to that vein their major artery rounds zero the all the all collected at it as you guys hearing about me from original wrappers and the legacy is being passed down but whatever so my face none of the new millennials the news they didn't know what to look like in fact millennials. They didn't realize to like two years ago to say o'dowd. Dana's real personality thought that was part of the rhyme. You know your you say you're a lyric in rhyme. If I'm the man I got to be adapted Dan or something like that and you're still bill underground at this point yeah. I'm still on the ground okay and so all of this is happening. I'm saying Dale what's going on here. It's a new world and fast forward here. We are now down in two seventeen to sixteen this social media and in Coochie makes this thing to say here. We are in two seventeen. Gucci comes out. What are they come out with. Take came out with a jacket that's exact replica of what I may for a famous Olympian Diane Dixon and she and she sees it and people see so she she posts something on instagram and twitter and here and here it is ah we just like tell me tell me what you see and so the same jacket here's Diane Dixon I made for her that is all aw Louis Vuitton Super Bussan sleeves and wood Mahogany mink and they come out with it in Gucci version with Mahogany MINK and Blue San's lease with the Gucci print and Diane Dixon tweets and posts on instagram and she's got a picture of her eighties. He's got a picture of the model today side by side and you see the jackets look identical so now. I never knew anything about this. This new powerful voice call black twitter blackwood. It went viral and it's like the heavens opened up you you know it's like his twenty years a cloudy weather and all of a sudden. There's this break in the sky. You know men get this glorious light coming out. The heaven shines right down in to this new medium call social media. So how did this issue. Who would your family tell you about this or did you how did you how did you know about his next thing. I know we're getting calls from everywhere we can call from stylus in office and everybody is saying. Gucci wants to get in touch with you know. My son say you should talk to do you want to do some. I believe you don't believe not as you know. I had. This internal distrust for just fascist structure. He said DAD THEY WANNA. Do They WanNa do something which you say okay if they wanted to someone I say I got a brownstone hollow. I say tell them to come to my brown so long and and they came and they say when we did that jacket that was your creation we did debt to pay homage to you and I'll take that for they were <hes>. We just didn't say it right. We're here today to say. Everybody pays you homage but nobody paid you. We had to change all that. I said we're the contract I said. I don't want no collaboration when upon ship and they gave me a partnership and they say in addition to that. We're going to give you the ability to do what you've always done in Harlem Tom. We're going to open up. I tell year and how will you can do what you be creative. What you just use who Gucci Fabrication in addition to that. We're GONNA have a partnership over collection. That's GonNa go into all Gucci stores around the world and you get a percentage of that <hes> there's there's like there's a long history now of like white controlled corporations coming in and and sort of co-opting people of Color <hes> but then there's also this idea that like you're taking or where they are paying homage to to you when the designs and there it is a partnership but like there. Is this like line right like was that something that you wrestle with the fear that like that. I don't know I might be part of like some sort of PR stunt on their this is this isn't sincere necessarily well. If anyone who haunt us that kind of a feeling don't understand the nature nature economics. It's like I have a choice and not choices I can start by building from the bottom and think that I can profit off my the culture and compete against a multinational corporation. That's not going to happen you know and if I attempted to do that that would be like taking us back fifty years he is because that would be equivalent to what I call. Jim Crow Economics because I'm not in the rules so that's that's where I am right now and this is what I'm trying to explain to everybody yeah so now. Do you boycott and walk away now. This is this is the option trail you could boycott and walk away and get zero how rationalist there as opposed to being apart and being in these spaces uh-huh with these dark faces and being able to make choices and see how the dynamics of multi-national multi national corporations function right. You know what I mean yeah so partnership with Gucci. What does that feel like now. This is what I've been saying for like the last two years. I've been telling my friends. Don't get too close to me because if you pinch me and I wake up on Ku does us with the feels like it feels like a dream. You know it's a rainbow and what's what's the rainbow but is it just the is it. The money is the fact that you're not underground anymore. Is that the fact that the recognition and what is the way the rainbow is recognition and would it not just personal recognition but the difficult it makes it a community from which it sprang the fountain from which Golden Water came out. That's that's the big spotted this. This is a luxury brand. This is global presence is felt global. I Netherlands Australia China. All these people are conscious of the fact. There's a black guy from Harlem that has done this and like I I have what we call pen pals and my I don't know what you're calling the following day but have follow us in the shantytowns of South Africa the for Velez Kazue will do you know how that feels to touch people who have a life similar the to what I have come out of you know I grew up swimming in Harlem River Sewage floating by my face laughing at it you could so a stone tone from my house and in the land in Hollywood I am the Harlem River and I always considered myself as being like Harlem always there but always movie one of the things that we didn't touch on which I think to me is like one of the biggest <hes> transformations that you've gone through that. We never even talked about when you're running dyson when you're on the streets and you were like running those games there was all about business was all about the numbers as soon as you open the store. I mean you have to you have to manage the store while right. You have to bounce the books all that sort of stuff but really what you are you. Have you have transform yourself into like an into an artist. I right like you are making these designs and I wonder if when you describe the way it felt like it was opening up. I wonder if if it felt like your one way of looking at your life is like it was a continual process of like showing your gift with the world and this felt like the combination of that that now you can share it and the world is welcoming. No no absolutely not okay. That's the big theory. Dust the next to the last step. Okay you know you white guys will not get this and let me tell you what that is by. Our life has been an abundance for you. You have no reason to question but we're constantly questioning who we are so when I started out I started out in a storefront church. All I had all my parents could give me was the Holy Ghost and do you know what that is. You WanNa Blues Brother's when they're holding goes hit him and he jumped up. I've been flipping the edge. You understand what that is. You have to understand what that is to understand. Oh what it means to be black. The Holy Ghost is the purity of what it means is to be black. We didn't have anything else in order to say. It was that's all right. We got holes in our shoes but all God's children in heaven got shoes news so we was locked into way to you die before you get to heaven. Get these things and that's sustained US deal Samsung say I know so much about the darkness y'all saying you know and I had all these visions like Jesus in the cave. USA All these symbolism and I'm studying I'm reading. I'm saying you have to go into that cocoon and emerge from that cocoon and get to a point where you can have shine nine that light and so we today. I'm at I'm in prosperity phaser this. I haven't even been to expound on what this means spiritually richly. That's the way I'm hitting. This is the story I want to tell this Gucci Story. This fastened story look at this black guy who spoke to be nothing swimming the river with this shit in it where we shit. That's where I was in the river where we shit Eunson. I'm saying to me that's the cave you know and when you come in at at you emerge from that they're you merge going which your march towards glory and if you don't tell that glory store you know have a story you you know so. That's where I'm at Deborah. Dan recently created a new program called the change makers which helps black fashion professionals grow their careers inside Gucci. He's also written a new book.

She ended up having to take her name off of the the shortlist for the vice fights by vice president slot with Biden. We got governor Ducey. Here's the deal. Governor Ducey is is I think he's put himself squarely in the line with all these other either latest governors are the people who are passing out orders, passing out decrees shutting down businesses, but when it comes to their private life. They do something a little bit different. We, now know that, Governor Whitman, when she's shutdown of Michigan and she. You weren't even allowed to visit your neighbor. That's how tight that shutdown was me while her husband is going up. You know clear out the boat launching so that. When the spring comes, they'll be able to enjoy their their properties. Double Standard. And you've heard me say often on this show. If not for double standards, the left would have no standards at all. But now I'm talking about Governor Doug Ducey. He supposed to be on the right. He's supposed to be a Republican. That's why I have to tell you. It is with embarrassment that we're looking at the national pages. Look at the national headlines and here we have a governor Ducey. Here's the headline. Amazonas Governor Doug ducey photographed. Without face mask. Or social distancing what? That's that's impossible. That's impossible. DIDN'T GOVERNOR! ducey Just tell us days ago. That, we should stay home. That we should stay safe. that. We should stay connected. We're asking you to stay home on the couch and watch Netflix. We're asking you to stay home. The best thing to do the safest thing for you to do to stay home. Remember you are safer at home. The virus is is widespread, so if you don't need to go out. Don't go out. A photo that has recently surfaced shows. Arizona's Republican Governor Doug Ducey speaking with others at a graduation party. While not wearing a mass, not practicing social distancing. The governor who himself told citizens to do both blasted the photo as way for it. Samir Tactic. You're trying to smear me well below governor I know there's just a picture that I took here. And slapped up on on social media, saying that the governor is not practicing social distancing. We haven't done a lot of talking about how contagious this is how anyone can catch it and then how enlarge social? Gatherings how quickly it can spread on Sunday June twelve, a phoenix space twitter user named Carter Santini posted the the image of ducey standing at a backyard table in close proximity to other unmasked men. It was unmasking party. Governor Ducey that's not social distancing the text across the image read. Tex alongside the image indicated that it came from age July Sixth Party at a time. When Arizona was expecting over three, thousand newly confirmed corona virus cases a day, however however. Lord, Uzis Office at the picture actually came from a small family gathering on June six. When the state's case numbers worked as high as they currently. Are. You see yeah, but you've been consistent and telling people. To stay home so if there's one takeaway. From today's press conference and the message that I wanNA share today. It's that you are safer at home. All arizonans are safer at home. And you can stay healthy at home. No. This was a smear attack that was factually incorrect to creating illusion that the governor was out over the fourth of July weekend. That's what the Ducey's chief of staff set there. That's what he told the Arizona Republic. He said it was a family event. It was a graduation. He stopped by to say happy graduation. That's all. This is a smear tactic. How could it be smear tactic when you've got the governor? They're holding a beer. Where is a black cargo shorts with as POLO SHIRT TUCKED IN? That's just as bad. You Polo Shirt. Let me see the Santini dishes. The governors governors chief of staff the picture. The picture speaks for itself. June was just as bad time to go to a party. This is this this is the twitter guy, not chief. This is the twitter guy responding. Hey, man, look Jewish just as bad as July. You used still have stuff shutdown. Hey, did we also have a picture of a Governor Ducey? Yes, state forty four. I think we did. This guy is a serial line stepper, but there really is nothing. Nothing that you can do that will help more than staying home. This idea of sacrificing is really a mindset, and if you see it as helping other arizonans helping our state helping our country, helping our healthcare workers, putting our kids in a position where eventually they can return to school, and we can protect the maximum amount of people and protect the maximum amount of livelihoods. There are strength in numbers. Step across land. Eventually. He's a habitual last step with Lord Ducie is. A line stepper. They'll tell you what to do. Hill close you down. He will find you, he will he? You're looking at jail time and you might lose your liquor license. But then here he is holding a bottle of Michelob at a party. In a group of people, Not, so should this again dare? I say no one in that gathering who were violating social distancing? They were not wearing masks. Now I gotTA. Tell, you. I got a problem with this. I've got a problem with the hit Park West say! Now tell you all about it six eighteen. You. All subjects of the Kingdom of Arizona onto. He needs these words. From his Roy. Moore Dizzy in terms of social gatherings where we are right now it's around groups of of ten or less. When we get to face to that. That number expands to fifty. were in face to yet were very close. We're headed in the right direction. is so. It's going to continue to be this idea around social distancing. I tended to wedding this past week, but it was a much smaller invite last than what was originally intended. Royal The nation from your. Generous. What say. You are listening to the. To -servative circus. I Andrew Ringmaster James Harris and we are discussing the fact that governor Ducey is made national news. Why photograph has surfaced. And with him without a facemask. He's not socially dissing distancing. He's within range of two or three other people. In this crazy. Now the person who was on twitter you said that this happened in July and duties office was quick to correct the record action happening June. But the. The part that's just killing me is. Hypocrisy from for not only do see, but from our governors given out certain degrees, and then they just have a free to break them. There's a travel ban here in Michigan, but all of a sudden you get the governor's husband flying down to Florida family flying the Florida. This is tyranny. This is a hypocrisy. This is absurd beyond believe. We've got a couple of other businesses. Shut down. We've got the we've got the governor telling people to stay. Sit on the couch. Watch net flicks to do your part. He's talking about memes that World War Two. People stormed the beaches Normandy today. All you have to do is sit on your counts when he. He's not sitting on the couch. He's going parties. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey's pandemic approval ratings plunge in new poll. Arizona approval. Rating God. Let me see here. Governor Ducey the way he's been handling covid nineteen outbreak has dropped sharply as the number of cases has skyrocketed. No actually has dropped sharply as the hypocrisy has been exposed. A total of thirty seven percent of those questioned in a new poll say they strongly disapprove of how the governor is managing the situation with another twenty six percent. Saying they're stay somewhat disapprove. This is Haute Oh h predictive. Doing this doing this? Our old friend Mike Noble. What I find interesting is when you try to when you try to serve both sides. When you try to be in the middle of the road, both sides. GonNa hit you. The reason why Governor Ducey's poll ratings are so low is because he has managed to infuriate a his base. And the left. and. Neither side are giving him any quarter. Just not. And If you're part of the base, you're looking at governor Ducey not just with the way. He's been handling the pandemic, but you can you can. If you recall some of the ways he's handled. Fellow Republicans it's sort of like he is the. He's the state version of a John McCain. Oh, I, said it. I sat at. dumbs down in the middle of the night. Beaten up on the. Own Party. Trump derangement syndrome. Incompetence and in leadership. That's a where that's what he is facing, and that is why you know. Again. Forgive me. But I tried to give some good advice deny. Ross Ross if a picture ever surfaced of me standing in a group of people and I'm not wearing a mask. Would that be controversial? Yarwood Blah would there be controversial well, it'd be a lot of. There'd be a lot of haters out. There will be lot of haters. He know what they say. He's not wearing a mask I. Have I ever told you to wear a mask. Have I ever told you to socially distance. You know Ross will come up to me, and he'll be like about three or four feet apart, but then he'll get rat on. He'll try to step back and I just closed. The gap in hugged him. Because that's what he needs. Everybody needs that. Socially distant stop it. But. Follow the science there's no science on socially distinct. This I stand by this. This is why it's so follow the science you don't like no. There's no science social distancing. Then you can say you know what it just sort of like common sense, okay? Those commercials when somebody sneezes and got they got the kind of cameras captured just like the like the the molecules among saints, not the molecules flying out of your mouth nose, and just how far it goes well, we're judge. We're judging the CA- Pablo be about three or four feet. Are we going to tack on another to just so so you could be distance in the F. safely. Don't know I don't know how they come up with this. Is Not Science. I digress. If? You would have just told people governor ducey. Do what you think it's best. You wouldn't be any problems that you wouldn't even be in trouble. If you been like you know what you got to socially distance if you want to, you know this is what the experts are suggesting and the other experts are also suggesting that you wear a mask I wear when when I want to out socially distance with people. Who are you know if they're uncomfortable? Otherwise I'm gonNA live my life. If you were to do that, this would not be controversial. But you didn't do that. As a matter of fact, there's been hypocrisy OUGHTA. Be around for a while. You want wearing a mask then office. The number spiked the next thing you know you make a big deal out of walking into press conference with Dr Chris and the general all where mass you make a big deal, a pudding hand sanitizer on your hands and then. Rubbing, it like you Lebron, James or something. A big deal. That's what irritates people. It irritated conservatives with like a why you. What seriously? Why are you giving in like this? Irritated, the left. Who said how come you doing this before? Why are you making a big deal of it now Thirty seven percent. Thirty seven percent that would says yes. Because of poor leadership. That is what we're dealing with your speaking of poor leadership, going to talk about Mayor Cuomo, at six thirty three off. Have, the president's private number Sean Hannity does catch this afternoon from one until four on five fifty KFI and on FM and ninety five wait five hd two. You are listening to the conservative circus. I am the ringmaster Jane's here's. I think one of the greatest mistakes that our president made was getting boxed in by the deep state, getting boxed in by government doctors the media. All calling for him to shut down. The country was unprecedented. It was never done before, but what were we to do? The president saw the numbers he saw the models. Two to four million people killed if we don't do anything. Very quickly, the the motto was revised down to two to four hundred thousand. Still. That's a Lotta people. We saw what happened over in China. We were seeing what was happening over in Europe. We people dying in nursing homes in Washington state. The media was fully fanning. The flames of panic ran out of toilet paper. You remember those times. It seems like a long time ago, doesn't it? I mean we're talking about this. A lot of fear a lot of fear. We were looking at things we did not understand. We're seeing lockdowns and in a communist countries. We were seeing old folks dying in Italy. The the the president, he shutdown travel from China. He was called a xenophobic. He was called racist. Mistakes were made, but you know I'm going to give the president the BENEFA- doubt. He said he wants to shut things down for two weeks. Remember that two weeks. He was the one who said you know. Wouldn't it be great if we had things opened up by Easter? Every time he ended opening backup Dr Foul in the crew, and the left were there to to smash him to pieces. Now we got a lot of states. Open up and now taking a couple of steps backwards because we gave them the power because. We unleash that cracking with the with with the state's. Because now the governor's felt empowered. State said ahead more. Governance. Had the legislature involved deliver. We were the ones that dropped the ball. We just had a one lone power. And now we're trying to get things back. We have the media using fear to keep things closed. the latest big target most schools. But not. GonNa School's back. In the very people who fear Mangat over closing, and then fearmongers opening backup are now using president trump as a target, even though it's federal federalism. States that call the shots somehow. Is President trump's fought. because. He didn't defeat the virus. Even though once again, it's a federal thing. The very governors. who had the power to do something? Are Now complaining. They advocated actually during the crisis. Demanding that the that the president do something in President. TRUMP DID NEW YORK. Governor demand that we don't have enough ventilators. There were overflowing investigators by the time president trump. We're running out of House hospital space. The president said the hospital ship. Governor Cuomo dead. Inexplicably. Part of the routine it was part of the the CDC guidelines or or the guideline coming from Saudi, but when you got a bunch of covert patients who are recovering what it Cuomo. Do you put them in nursing homes? What the Hell is that? That's still not being talked about enough. Whitmer did the same thing I also think Gavin. Newsom the did that. And we got questionable. things with with the nursing homes right here in the state of Arizona. But Governor Cuomo's moved probably cost ten thousand people in New, York their lives. Ten thousand. A, Cuomo still doing these these daily briefings. But now he's using them to attack president trump. We got numbers spiking here and. Number spiking in Texas and in California I. Believe is because it was happening on our border northern. Mexico is a hot zone. People are not talking about that, but no, no, now we have governor Cuomo, who's responsible again blood on his hands to the tune of ten thousand people now. He's calling shots. Now that we're seeing that New York is no longer the hot zone. He's getting all high and mighty. He issued emergency health order out of state. Travelers must register with state officials at the going to visit New York what toll across the country and it is undeniable. In. It's now a threat. To the state of New York. We have done a quarantine for the highest risk infection states. Phase of non-compliance dot the. When? We're new. York was just in the hot zone. I could be wrong about this but I. don't think that anybody know what you are restricted from trump into New York. If you travel from New York you have to register. What kind of arrogance is this? What kind of arrogance he's putting. Governor, Cuomo is issuing emergency health orders. If you fly to New York you got registered, you gotTA. You GotTa give your information so that they can track. You Trades you. Noncompliance can lead to outbreaks seeing it in Renton accounting now where people came up from Georgia. We're going to have the Department of Health issue in emergency health order today that will mandate that out of state travelers from the states that are quarantine. Must Provide. a location form before they leave the airport. Got To provide that before you lead the airport. And you know what governor? CUOMO, he's coming over consequences. If you if you if you're an American like I'm Michael Do. That I'm free old you, so you think the airlines will hand it out on the plane. It will also be available on the web. You can fail. Fill it out electronially, or you have to fill out the piece of paper on the airplane. You must give officials at the airport. Your form as to where you came from and where you're going before you leave the airport. It will be enforced in every airport in the state of New York. downstate the Port Authority will enforce it. If you leave the airport with providing the information, you will receive a summons immediately with a two thousand dollar fine. If you leave the airport without filling out. the information, not only. Can you have a two thousand dollar fine? You can then be brought to a hearing and ordered to complete mandatory. believable this from the man. Who sent ten thousand people to their deaths, because of his asinine order to put colored patients in nursing homes. You. Know was absolutely crazy about this. Not only without I would dare go to New, York, but this kind of stuff in place. You got people fleeing New York. There's more craziness here though. was crazy about this is. I seen it before. I have seen this before, and I will tell you where I saw it. Knows dieting. This morning at nine fifty on five fifty Kfi. At Ninety five point five hd two. You're listening to the conservative circus I. Am your ringmaster Jane's Harris? We have the governor of New York. Governor Cuomo. He's placing travel restrictions emergency health order out of state. Travelers must register with state officials. If you fly into New York and you don't register you. We'll be facing a summits. You would be facing a twenty five hundred dollar fine. I think by doing this. The the governor of of New Yorkers is killing businesses. He's going to kill travels gonNA. CARE kill tourism. Who wants to do this? Who wants to? WHO This is I. Mean this. Is it to a different level? Andrew Cuomo. Let me just finish this. Andrew Cuomo issuing emergency. Health orders for the state of New York in New York City okay. None of this is pleasant. But We've gone through this before. We went through this when Rick. Cotton and people at the Port Authority. Watched three million European. People from Europe come into this state. And bringing the virus. Fool me once. We can't be in a situation where we have people coming from other state right in the country bringing the virus. Again. IT! Is that simple? Here's the thing the okay. Can we identify with the paranoia that he may be feeling yeah? You know with President. Trump stopped travel coming from China. He was Zena full, but the yeah Europe was a hot spot to. They didn't do anything to slow things down there too too late. But restricting travel within the United States, that's something a little bit different I believe that takes into a different level. And I've seen this before. The first time I saw these type of restrictions this type registering. tracking tracing if you will, it was a little while ago, but I was traveling throughout Western Europe and I traveled into Eastern Europe I traveled into what was then. Czechoslovakia is broke up since now. You have to check your Slovak. But. That was my first experience traveling into a communist country. And I gotTa tell you. I mean this is back when the Soviet Union existed. Going into a communist country, they want to know why you're coming in where you're going. How long you're staying! There's no hey. Let's try this hotel over there. No, no, no, that has to be laid out before you get there. and. There can be no deviation. Now me being me. I just they were aspel. Sustain I deviated. Ross's shaking his head. Thinks the whole question at the airport of. Are you here for business or pleasure to a whole new level rarely does. Not only that, but I did some things that I did I should not have done. And I bought like known big. No, not that I I bought. You know you're supposed to trade the banks because they want you to know. How you spend the money whereas being spent, I knew that there were alternative ways. I win bought Czechoslovakian Crystal on all kinds of stuff. I'm riding the train trying to go from Czechoslovakia Hungary, when all of a sudden the border guards come on board armed everything receipts, they say. Oh snap. Oh snap if I showed the receipts. They're gonNA. Show that I was like I. Didn't trade at. The banks are traded on the black market whatever? Big Trouble. So Mike! What. Receipts I gave him my passport receipts, we say. Twenty two the passport recites. The guard through the Passport Becca Made said stupid Americans and then walked out. Door left me there. Shaking with fear. It turns out when I got to Hungary I bumped into another Americans. Like you've will. Do you know what could have happened to you? Do you know what could have happened to you? And obviously I I did not, but he explained it. It was terrifying. That's the power of the state has yeah. Some people slipped through. But a lot of people don't. And then with a lot of people say James Why don't you go to a country like that in the first place? James knowing that which you go back, would you do it again? no. No absolutely not as a matter of fact, semi was back in that part of the world, communism had gone. The Wall fell down. I was back in Poland. It was night and day night and day. United, States America's Day. Now, you've got governors like trying to turn it into tonight I. don't care. Safety does not trump liberty safety does not trump freedom. What's wrong with people I'm serious of starting to get a little bit annoyed. We're not going to return to school until it safe. Schools are safe. But the fear mongering. Once you give up your liberties for safe. Then you have open yourself up to the power of the state lying to you. Fear mongering to keep you in place. That's will face right now. In this country and the starting to show up and New York is starting to show up an California. Gavin NEWSOM. You. Know what as much as I complain about. governor our Lord Ducie. Gavin newsom is a nightmare. Humanitarian. Begin California right now finding out that everything is being shut down again. Because of a spike in cove it. And the spike is. In Your neighborhood not is down on the border, but they don't really acknowledged that. I'm telling you that what we're watching here is truly frightening, but I. It's messy. People are going to let go. Try Try to blame president trump for, but seriously these are state issues. And the founders were absolutely brilliant and setting this up. We don't want of. We have a strong central government I think the founders would be absolutely. Jess apoplectic over how strong are central government has become? They never plan for it to be like this. Is the states that are the parents and the central government was supposed to be the child that has been flipped. But doing this pandemic, you see the state still have rights. And that is why the government that is why a president trump can't just come in and just do things or get things done. Because, states have rights that means that we the people. The citizens have responsibilities. We get the government we we deserve. We need to change that. We have to change the way things are working here. I'll complain about New York. Use California as an example, but we're in Arizona. and. We have to take the bull by the horns. and. Get this date a properly balanced in the near future. President trump is continue to wed in all. The left can do ignore. Ladies and gentlemen children of all ages. John To. Serve it as. What was your name? S One thing that. Crystal, clear. The battle lines are being drawn. And it's no longer going to be about. The economy anymore. Really is going to be about ideology. and. President trump has has done a fantastic job of really highlighting just how hapless. A Joe Biden is but more importantly. He is shown us. How far to the left. Joe Biden has gone Republicans are the Party of Freedom Democrats are the Party of socialism and worse. What's happened? The Democrat Party is a whole different deal. They tear down the monuments and they think it's. Their tear down the mighty state. Think it's good. They have gone full socialism. This is what the president and I think. This is what the nation is realizing. And we're having an opportunity to do something about this. In the center ring of the conservative Circus A, we have grover norquist's. He is a at a political activist. He is also specializes in tax and tax reform and grover norquist in your estimation. How is the economy these days holding up a with a joke since the change and how that going to play into twenty should say the the elections coming up in November. Well, it's coming back and the good news. Is that this recession? This slowdown was completely created by the government. The government shutdown the economy. The government said don't go to work. The government said planes and all of these N don't go to restaurants, and you can't open. A restaurant drove our or an amusement park or hotel. as the government steps back and get out of the way the fundamentals that the Republican Congress. Congress and president trump put together significantly lower regulatory burdens every year. There's two hundred twenty billion dollars less regulatory costs from the regulations that were set aside just up until a year ago. That doesn't count the things that happened in the last year, and if things that are happening now, that's a real step forward with tax cut We took the corporate rate which is thirty five percent highest in the world. Communist China taxes businesses at twenty five percent. The United States government under Bomber was thirty five, so you spent more money. Your tax. By The US government than by Communist China. That's why money and jobs and investment flowed out of the country. Now took that down to twenty one investments coming into the country, staying in the country are created here and you saw in May when the government took its foot up the. Back of the American economy, a little bit, two and a half, million jobs created largest jump in jobs in history of the country and more than four point, eight million in June, this should really surge back over the next couple of months particularly in August because there is a. Federal Government gives an extra six hundred dollars few to stay unemployed per week. during the month of October up until August I that disappears. You have normal half of your salary. Roughly unemployment benefits they continue, but you don't have the additional twenty four hundred dollars per month to stay employed. A lot of people have said I'll come back in August when the additional unemployment. Unemployment number goes down. The Democrats want to keep that subsidy up why to keep the unemployment higher to stop the surgeon jobs and that's GonNa be a real question as to whether or not the Republicans can hold off the Democrat effort to do that and the treasury secretary thought it was a smart move to make that mistake the first time he could be stupid a second time. Concern about the got grover Norquist's in the center ring of the conservative circus. Listen, the economy's going to come roaring back I. I do believe that especially. If we can get people to just stand out of the way I agree with you. The left does not want to see roar back but the president. I don't think he's going to be running on. On that of what has happened since covert we just played a clip of the president's saying that Republicans are the Party of Freedom and Democrats are the Party of socialism with the rise of Blm of and the anti-capitalist, the the the Marxist movement to you see this thing forming up to be really an ideological battle for the soul of the Republic in November. Well it is, but I don't think the Democrats want it to be about that. They wanted to be about the president's. They wanted to be about anything and everything. You know how many cases have been discovered in Florida this week. Not Know death can be going down. people are not going to the hospital, but they will shift the tension to the statistic that is going in the wrong direction. You may remember in nine hundred, eighty, four Reagan was running for reelection. The economy's going gangbusters. Unemployment's out every month jobs every month, and the Democrats would check well. Felt what among and then they pick some sliver younger women. It's falling slower than older men and you know they just. There would be this. But every time there was good news when two and a half million jobs were created When when yes, when turnoff million jobs were created. In May the front page of the Washington. Post didn't mention that. Matter, of fact, it said people are really worried that this that this recovery might stop. That was the head writer, and then buried in the tax was two and a half million jobs. You know the largest increase in jobs in a month in history United States. The establishment press is going to try and get you to focus on like Jition to get you to focus on everything except. The health of the country and the strength of the economy, and frankly strength American position around the world. We're not bogged down in wars of choice. We're not wrapped around the AXLE. Doing other countries want us to do tell us to do all the things you know. We didn't sign that treaty, which would have increased the cost of all energy. The United States dramatically slowed our growth and made us look like your. Everything you just described as absolutely on plight, and if this were any other president, he would be praised as one of the greatest presidents of all time the reverse our situation ECORSE. It's not that Grover Norquist so let me ask you real quickly. What Could Democrats do right now? That was screw up the economy and the president's reelection bid. Is there anything they could do? They want to spend massively. In this budget and say this'll be good for the economy and they WANNA. Hire all their friends and they want to. Pay People to not go back to work. They don't want to. Encourage people to go back to work. They want to continue the. Additional payment to stay unemployed. In on top of normal unemployment in order to keep the unemployment numbers high, they want the blue states and blue state governors to keep small businesses from opening up. Eighty percent of small businessmen and women are Republicans they don't care that. They're destroying those businesses a matter of fact they like the idea of destroying those businesses because they're not democrats, their self sufficient. They don't need the government. They just want to be left alone and the Democrat can't do anything for somebody who just wants to be left alone that person's GonNa vote for the Republicans because. Republicans will leave him up and not ask for anything out so I think you'll see everything that they want to have the schools not start up again, and To in order to keep people have real trouble with getting the work. If you've gotta take care of your kids how to get to work, it's they will continue to do what they've done, and they're very angry that some states are successfully. Opening off. And so they say you know even though New York City has had more deaths than like Texas and Florida and several other states combines they say New York is the success and Florida and Texas about to fall apart. Because a bunch of twenty year olds younger people are getting the virus. Yes, that was always going to happen. Grover norquist. Your view here is so much on point that I just love hearing. I've seen the same things, but I'm hearing it from someone else. Who was watching it from Washington. DC I WANNA. Thank you very much for your time this morning. I'm going to take what grover norquist's and saying right here to the next level will do that at seven eighteen. Listening. Conservative circus. I and your ring massive James Harris. President Trump said that the. Fake News. The fake news media was really the and was the enemy of the people remember that. And of course, the CNN's the world that they hammered him the Jim. Acosta that was back when he was kind of prominent Beckett as it just screaming and yelling, how dangerous it is! The truth of the matter is president. Trump was right. The fake news media really really is the enemy of we the people. I mean when you encounter in entity that repeatedly lies. Lies to use landers. You mocks you hides things from you. Should you consider? Anything other, but they're your enemy. And this is become obvious, even more so since the Mount Rushmore speech, which was unifying, which was patriotic, which was beautiful, but which the media said a was dark. Divisive. Since that time, everything president trump has done that has been positive has been ignored as being called negative type. Things at the media say are negative day. Yeah, that stands on his own, but was crazy about what we're watching right now is positive. Things are being ignored or denigrate it. Trump delivers a unifying speech. The media calls it lies calls. Dark calls it vis of. The George Floyd situation. We. Get the media six weeks of just stirring stripe on the death of George. Floyd lying about the resulting chaos. All these are peaceful protests when you got fires Gordon on the background. You GotTa rioters and looters descending on major cities, and you got just like Baghdad Bob, you got the media out front. Say Nothing's happening here. These are peaceful protests. We talk about what's happening over in. The. Pro Democracy Movement in Hong Kong. How does the media? How does it media use that? Well, they say oh. It's the same thing in in Seattle with the autonomous zones. And then when it comes to the pandemic. You've got mainstream journalists. Ignoring the fact that you know Americans are tired of shutdown. Ignoring the fact, they'll call the people who are protesting peacefully. Rioters, The media's that our friend. The media is the enemy of the American people. and. The media is outright lying. About president trump and outright lying about anything. That comes from his administration. Hydroxy, chloroquine remember that president trump comes out and says hey, you know this is a very promising. This could be a game changer, and immediately the press sets upon. Why are you giving false hope? Why are you pushing this drug? Is it true that you own stock. You own interest in this drug. Whenever reality is the direct opposite. How come those questions were never asked of a of a F- Ouchi? And who his associations were with and the new drugs there been trying to develop. Then late in the day when we find out that hydroxy chloroquine actually was very effective as very helpful, then the media downplays it. The media. Are, the enemy of the people. And you look at how they carry the water. Look at how they carry for for for the left for Democrats. One of the biggest scandals in American history you had a former administration tried to sabotage an incoming administration. After two years of a hoax, the Russia collusion Russia. Trump collusion turned out to be a big fat hoax. Lot Of folks knew from the very beginning. Look the lives that they destroyed in order to try to topple the pre the trump presidency. The when president trump frustrated that none of these people who are conducting the cooler held responsible. He Breezy pardons give clemency to two Roger Stone. All of a sudden, the left lose mind forgetting. The controversial. Moves that the Obama Administration and the Clinton administration made when it came to commutations. Are. They're not our friend. The president trump said that it was the the fake news media. I think what we come to learn his. Almost all of what we're seeing. The so-called news is fake. And is all designed to in twenty twenty dispirit you. Miss Inform you. As Grover, norquist's was saying. The design is to pressure the states especially the blue states to not open up. Most small business people are. So why in the hell would a Democrat Governor Caleb care about that? Or never-trumper care about that. And before you accuse anyone of being conspiratorial, you just need to sit back and look at the results of what's been going on. Look at look at the positive results. You've got you. You saw coming from the White House. Look at the organization. The coordination you saw coming from the White House. And look at the chaos. That was happening in the states. And the UK of the conclusion yes, yes. No what president trump was right? The media is the enemy of the people and the Democrats statewide are trying to crash the system. That's how much they despise. President Trump Rush. Still Best listened today at ten on five fifty Kfyi I and on FM at ninety, five eight five hd two. Conservative. Sir Your ringmaster James Harris. The big. Push right now. I should say or line of Resistance. Our schools president trump is urging state local leaders to reopen the schools. Notice He. He's gone past governors. Scar on past politicals. But all you need to do is listen to people like Nancy. Pelosi, listen to people like Chuck Schumer the political leadership they're. They're the ones that are pushing the fear. They realize they don't have the power either. This is a state issue, but they do have the power of the bully pulpit or lease the television. Have to look at for our children, our teachers, custodians or many many people who are involved in the education of our children. Let's show. That we put children first and their education by putting the resources there, because without the resources. We shouldn't even be thinking about sending them back to the resources. We shouldn't even think about these kids back to school. We have to be concerned. We have to be worried without the to be safe. All of this hysteria. Over children they're not even the ones that are getting sick. Dr Scott Atlas you see him a lot on Fox, all over Fox News. He is one of these doctors that this makes total sense. He's wanted a doctor that actually follow the science. I think we have a different scale because that's just completely wrong. In contrary to the science in say when I say all the science I'm talking about science from all over the world, not just in the United States, but Switzerland Sweden Canada France The Netherlands Australia Asia. I mean it's really totally contrary to the science and here's the science. I'm not sure how many times it has to be said, but the wristed children from this disease for fatality is nearly zero. The wrist children for a significant illness is quote far less therm from seasonal flu according to Jama pediatrics. I mean this is totally anti. To the data in the other thing that we have to. Obviously we know this by now. It's been confirmed all over the world. Children rarely transmit the disease to adults. Children are rarely transmit the disease to adults who was going on here Dr. Alison talking about Al You. Know the Democrat reaction. The liberals reaction. Is One hundred eighty degrees out of phase with the science. And a studies, not just the United States, but globally showed us, and yet you got people still in resistance. Vote, Dr Scott Atlas I think the most important thing of all the other. There's two points I wanNA make. The teaching is a young profession. In the United States. Half the teachers are forty or less than a quarter of them are under thirty ninety percent under sixty in public schools. They have almost zero risk from this, and for those high risk teachers, which there are some. If they believe in masks and social distancing, don't they know? Know How to do that by now if they're still afraid to do their job, why can't they teach from a distance if they think social distancing works, teach in the class if they think distance, learning works, teach from home, but the problem here and this is the biggest point of all I never hear anyone talk about the harms of closing schools. The harms are against the children. Anyone who prioritises children were open the schools. That's just counter factual to say that you know. The children are not the risk or were at risk here. Another great question other great observation. We're talking about the teachers all. I'm afraid of getting sick, but what about the negative impact of not going to school? What does that have on the impact that having kids and how come? You're not talking about it. We know why they're not talking about it. Dr Scott at Louis there are over almost a quarter of a million, apparently reported child abuse cases missed because children's child abuse is most noticed in the schools, and so I mean I'm not sure. We're the only country in the world. This is a level of hysteria like this is something I feel like I'm living in a costco novel here I mean I get thousands of emits a week from all over the world from professors, teachers mothers in the United States, and elsewhere they are stunned at that. We are willing to just simply destroy our children of some bizarre notion. That is completely contrary to the science. Is they're. They're stunned. That, we would be willing. To destroy our children. But we shouldn't be. This is what the left is. They're the ones that say you know. Follow the science what we're following the science. Go back to school. But they're not willing to do that. Not Out of safety concerns. But out of political concerns. The keeping the schools closed movement. Is just another political, weapon? Being used against the president trump and the trump economy. Keeping kids at home disrupts parents who are working. Now. They're going to have to change the way they do. Things 'cause you know these kids are still home. Especially, the parents were younger kids. This political move by the teachers unions. By the Democrat Party from top to bottom. The the only sole purpose. Is To stall economy I'm telling you the day after the election. Especially, if if you get a bite, and when everything is going back to normal, you will be shocked at how quickly everything? Would go back to normal. So when when Scott Atlas lays it all out, and then we can connect the dots we can adopt. The is across the tees. We see what is going on here. There's no reason in the world for these schools not to be reopened. Most of the teaching base is young, and as I've told you before. For those older teachers who may be concerned their options their creative options. You could come up with if you're serious about reopening the schools, but they're not serious about reopening the schools. That's why we're getting all of these weak excuses. And? That's why we continue to get all of this fear mongering. Now the left is very upset very upset with NBC. As a matter of fact, NBC is under attack from some of their own base why? Driving left nuts. That's why we love. Rush this morning at ten on five fifty camp y and on. Ninety five point five hd two. They won't Agai-. Sermon of circus. Ringmaster James Harrison. Fourteen minutes you're going to have a chance to put a thousand dollars in. Your Wallet. is a wallet or the money clip now these days or your purse? At a thousand dollars in your pocket? Is that sexist nuclear win? A thousand dollars just be tuned in fourteen minutes from right now. The cancel culture I. Think the let started to eat their own they are. You Got NBC. You GOT MSNBC. They actually had a pretty good report, they they. They followed the science. They went to the health professionals. And they, they asked him a very simple question before they get to the question before they get to the question. You've got multiple doctors out there. Who are saying you know why to? Go back to school. This fall is not a problem. Are experts agree most children don't get sick as adults and the serious complications are rare, this has been a strange pandemic, because usually for respiratory viruses, children, the first and the most substantially affected, and this is really been a flip of that. Where are adults and particularly our older adults that have been more effective. In fact, kids only account for two percent of all cases. Doctors say they don't expect that number to significantly increase when schools open, because kids don't appear to be good at spreading the virus, our kids as good at transmitting the virus as adults, the data that's come out now. Seems to show that most transmissions occur from adults to adults or adults to children younger. You are probably the less likely you are to transmit the disease well. Many teachers are concerned about reopening school so soon. The five doctors we spoke to agreed the benefits of being in the classroom far outweigh the risk of disease, but the key is to reopen safely and they are. Not Seen Transmissions when we're following simple guidelines, you think each school system is going to have to come up with their own guidelines, because you can't just say that. One City is just like the next. No, you can't say that, so each city has come up with wrong guidelines. You know based on what you're dealing with. The children don't get it these documents saying that when it comes to transmitting the virus, the children's suck at it. If the doubts that are that are pass it on the children. That's probably why they WANNA put mask on the kids right? Chest to be safe everywhere else in the world, children are returned to school just like normal only in the United States of America have they not. Or. Why are these left? He's turning on MSNBC. Why are these left is now turning on the doctors? Well, because the the reporter asked a very. Powerful question to each one of the doctors who are part of this piece. Would you let your kids go back to school? I will kids are looking forward to it? Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. They can. Station. Hesitation, yes, I have no concerns about sending my child to school in the fall I would go back to school. This report was dangerous. Spot. CIBLE and uncalled-for says left. In cancer cultures now going after the reporter going after the doctors who said you know I don't see a probably I would send my kids back to school in harping not a pro every single one of them, the people who follow the science, the people who know the medicine. They know that this is not a threat, but you know what politically. It is a threat. And Shame on MSNBC for running such an honest piece on grant back to school. Shea Shea Shea. In there being shamed by the left. This whole thing then you've got the parents on on the right side of the house and you know what I'd rather home school than put my kids in. Corona virus prison school a coronavirus reeducation-camp. There is something to that as well. And, I really do believe that the corona virus. Is going to have a profound impact on Education K. through twelve all the way up to university. And not just because of distance learning. Now. I will I said it before I'll say it again. Home schooling is not which is not what it used to be. You have co OPS. You have contacts you. It's it can be. What you whatever you want it to be, but it could be something very very special. there's all types of partnerships going on out there. We had Diane Douglas on last week She talked about this. It was it was. There's a network. I'm not that information for you I thought I. had it right here in front of me I don't. But there's a network out there of parents. Who are are getting together and they are exiting. Government run schools. And, I'm telling you we've come full circle. After, more than one hundred years of the socialist running this institution. The the remnant. Is Coming back in is coming back strong. Schools need to be reopened regardless. and. We had a teacher who passed away here recently from covert. And I've been trying to be careful with the story because I don't want to disrespect the family. But now we have the left using that teacher that teaches death as a bludgeoned against the president trump again. It is not a trump issue. It's a state issue. About President Trump was asked about the teacher who passed away, and why it's important is important to to reopen schools in a light that teachers are dying. Yeah. In president trump discontinued look, the schools should be opened. Its jest just the schools that are. Slow walking on. or I should say why they are slow walking. The to reopen schools. They are on a very quick pace when it comes to defunding the police when it comes to cancelling the police. And I the the head strongness. The delusion that exists on the left well. We're starting to see them. Even eat themselves when it comes to this very important issue as well. At eighty three. We're going to talk about How the left trying to turn a we the people against policing? What happened when the police officer told a protester. Matter. Gentlemen Children of all ages. To kind of serve a certain. Just like white folks can't say I can't breathe. Better tried to avoid seeing all lives matter. and. Quite, serious note, a young woman lost her life recently, the story was under reported in the country because of course. She was killed by an angry black person, and she was killed because she said all lives matter. Got Shot in the head. A few years ago, we had a movement urgency movie. We had a celebration a gathering. And we call it blue lives matter. Who was a a counter movement? To. The black lives matter seeing that was surging s even back in twenty seventeen. The blue lives matters is pointing out the fact. In pushing back against the other narrative with blue lives, police officers, their lives matter. Our country has been in turmoil ever since the killing of. George Floyd. And it was one of those moments where nobody was questioning. If they were not questioning, we were all on the same page. It was a moment lost. Since the George Floyd. Killing We have seen perpetual marching demonstration agitation. But the one thing that has been ignored while this whole time is the blue lives blue lives police officers. David ignored by the left and the mainstream media. They have been attacked. Police officers have been killed. That's the story. Protests over racism and police violence continue nationwide. Flowing out of Minneapolis and many officers. Don't want to be in the spotlight. Mini. Officers cannot do their job. Because wherever they are. They're met by protesters. They're met by resistance. And, they're starting to respond the blue flu spreading. A cities. But more importantly, what's happening? Is You're seeing? Something? Called the Ferguson effect where police officers are not going to run and put themselves in harm's way because. They're not gonNA. Get any helping situation in May. Get castigated afterwards. He made use their job. They may lose their liberty. And, what's most frightening is how the left how the Democrats and how the media? Are Colluding. For police for policing in this country to be diminished. In the wake of that. We're seeing criminals have carte blanche. We're seeing criminals. Go Buck while we're seeing shootings. Go Up! Murders go up in our major cities. One year old is the latest victim of a four week stretch of increased gun violence in new. York City. Data from the NYPD shows a two hundred and thirty one percent increase in shootings from this exact time last year this weekend alone. There are reports of twenty two shootings twenty eight victims in New, York City. Two hundred and thirty one percent increase in shootings. Latest victim a one year old child. one-year-old child blackout black lives matter of course. saw the interview with his father. Meanwhile the Washington redskins were forced to change their name. That's what the left will concentrate on. What will there we're? GonNa call them tells and honor the Ski, institute the Flyer Down at the Eleven people lost their lives in Chicago last weekend. Seems to me. They have double digit murders every weekend in Chicago. But But all we get. From the left is a defunding police or now, here's the new one. Here's a new catchphrase. The new talking point being circulated amongst the Democrat pundits for folks in law enforcement. Share, the goals of reimagining police re imagining policing in the twenty first century, rethinking and reimagining policing community efforts to reimagined policing to re imagine policing. Policing looks like reimagining policing reimagining our public safety reimagined citizen led approach can begin to reimagined law. Enforcement reimagined public safety in this country. What can we do to reimagined public safety reimagining public safety to reimagined public safety? We must reimagining what public safety looks like. We have the reimagined reimagined re imagine re imagine. Re Imagine what public safety looks like? That's going. That's the new term for a D. Fund. EXCEPT LLC Elsie. She's you know she's not GonNa talk about reimagining. Maybe she thought that word there, but she's still talking about D. funding the police. It's funny because when people ask me. What does a world where we define? The police were defunding. Police looks like I told them it looks like a suburb. Looks like a suburb. Yeah. We're defunding parts of a Philadelphia right? It looks like sober. Maybe that's because that's where she grew up. She grew up in a suburb. She grew up in a suburb. They didn't have a whole lot of policing. Because you know was pretty comtained place. Now, she's trying to say how she grew up going to be like places like Chicago and Atlanta that will never suburban never had the stability, but at the moment you get rid of police. All of a sudden tranquility will enter these areas these neighborhoods. And what's crazy is? Got A lot of trouble in a little bit of hot water for even dismissing the crime that she really is supporting by defunding the police. So, why is this uptick? Well. Let's think about it. Do we think this has to do with the fact that there's record on employment in the United States right now. The fact that people are at a level of economic desperation that we have not seen since the great recession. Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent. Rent and so they go out and they need a feed. Their child and they don't have money, so you maybe have to your. They're put in a position where they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that S. that's the other thing we're watching here. How now the lettuce making excuses for the the looting and pillaging that went on? Under the guise of peaceful protests. I. Just want folks. Please share with your friends LAPD. As this is what they're trying to bring upon US reimagining. Civil society. Going to talk about the Redskins real quick next the redskins. They're making all the news for all of the wrong reasons. We'll do that at eight eighteen. You are listening. To the conservative circus I am your ringmaster James t hairs. Washington redskins all. They're no longer known as the Washington redskins. And they were bullied into changing their name. And that really wouldn't be a problem except for the fact. That twenty years ago, the owner of the Washington redskins it will never happen. We're never changing Washington redskins. And I think from a bottom line perspective what it means is tradition. What it means is competitiveness. What it means is honor. It is not meant derogatory and and I think that to take it. That way is just to build a podium and speak from the standpoint of what it means to every fan, and that doesn't make a difference. What what the fan? It's religion race. What what have you it is? It means the same thing it means. tradition means greatness. It means fighting for the redskins fighting for Washington DC. Actually if that were true, what happened? What happened? I'll tell you what happened the cancer culture. With the with the. Confederate flags going down the cries of racism going up. You. Got The mob mentality happening and then Fedex field. Jumped into the whole thing has said we will. Not, we will not. You can't plan our stadium. He's still have that day. What is he supposed to do? You should never say never. I think now. They're having a very hard time finding a different name. Because as as my producer told me yesterday, you know a lot of folks enterprising folks when they heard Washington Redskins, talking about this they went, and they secured all the names for like a websites and stuff like that was like one guy in Virginia has the trademark name for basically all the ideas that they wanted to change to right now, so what happened was they went out there some as had was part of the organization, probably will talk about it and put it out there online somewhere and some enterprising person. Just win bottom all up, so you want us the rat tails. It's going to cost you. GonNa cost you a pretty penny. I have a solution to this problem. We should refer to the Redskins as the the football team formerly known as the Redskins. Take a page from prints. Member when press was having a little problem with the studio with the with the complete working with with the I, forgot the name of scumbag. Anyway, he just changes name. I'm now known as the for the artist formerly known as Prince. Get out some contract stuff. Make some more of. The football team. Formerly known as. The redskins. I think that works. I'll always referred to them as a redskins. Not that I'm going to be watching a whole lot of football this year if they start to kneeling stuff. which I understand that going to do plus the fact, they're gonNA. Play Lift every voice and sing the Negro national anthem before the national anthem. Very very very difficult for me to get into this. Because it's ludicrous. Every. You can only make me laugh if you give me the Obama version, the other version is beautiful. It's a gorgeous song. It's just not appropriate for you know it's just. It's the black national anthem. That the white national anthem, not the Mung. National Anthem not the Spanish national anthem is the black national anthem. And NFL is supposed to be a league that brings people together man. Every Sunday Sunday football we put everything else aside, and we just enjoy football. Not Anymore. Would they don't understand is racist for them to come up with some black national anthem and played at first as if black folks are the only people that were playing in the NFL now we're talking about the NBA that's something completely different. We can have a black national anthem in the NBA because isn't the NBA like you know like eighty five percent. I. Didn't hear the siren on that. That was a that was a blatant racist statement there and yet the NBA. There in the news as well 'cause they were all woke at the beginning of the of the season. They were so woke that they were telling A members of the NBA, you cannot say anything negative about China. Remember that. Lebron James Shut up a dribble. All of a sudden, you got credit. There was a lot of criticism for that, but then once the once the Chinese hit came down, then He. showed up and dribble. Daryl Morey. Rockets with the Free Hong Kong tweet! Free Hong Kong tweet created a firestorm where you had China removing the Houston Rockets gear. That's the most favored team up there and he was. Management of rockets. They were tearing that I don't think they ever put it back up. You had Steve Kerr other coaches going off. On more you had you had Lebron James going off. No sometimes people say stupid things, and you should be careful about the things that you say because you know lives could be could be could be dependent upon on. Thank you say. The Brian James? How's my Lebron James? Impersonation pretty good right, yeah! Grenfell wait talking about. The Brian What do you think about the president? Trump trump trump, but he's a trump i. You got the NBA getting caught openness mess. NBA and Blm so just to be clear, I could not get a Jersey that said three Hong. Kong, but I can get one that says kill cops on the back of it. Reporters call in is true. You get a Jersey that says kill cops put. You can't get a Jersey that says free Hong Kong what has happened to our country. What has woken kness done to us. It's absolutely incredible how the world is upside down, but do not worry. Do not worry because Hillary Clinton is on board to make it all right here. We had a couple appearances. We'll look into that at eight thirty three. Only introduction. He needs later today between ten one on five fifty. Why and on FM Ninety, five point five hd two. You are listening to the Servant of service I. Am Your Ring. T Harris. No. Just say maybe I'll give you a different reinterpretation. What's going on here? All the madness? Be See. We were talking a few days ago about Jeffrey Epstein. Dying in prison, his his his paramour is now in jail. You talk about FC talk about, Weinstein. Him of the whole upon me too movement. There are there have been exposed and the less money machine has been disrupted. Weinstein was nothing more than a Bundler, I a very high price bundler. Working out of Los Angeles. What his Buddhism a movie deals movie contracts. He was a kingmaker a star maker, but he also raped women. He protected other folks secrets, and so he was protected. I should save protected. He was protected. It's the same thing with Harvey Weinstein Harvey Weinstein was probably Master blackmailer? He has videotapes. He has good on so many people. And I want you to know that this is the power base of the Democrat Party. This is this. Is I mean? Not to say you don't have some of the elite, the establishment Republicans are maybe crossover in that Rambo and surprise me, but this is a stronghold of the left, and that is why. When Hillary Clinton lost. It was after she lost that. The Weinstein's in the EPSTEINS and and other kind of craziness starting to get exposed. Nobody's been held accountable for your. But now we know why they're fighting so hard. It was reported. That before the elections in November of two thousand sixteen. That Hillary Clinton said that if we lose to this Bassett, we're all GONNA hang. And I believe all the activity. We've been seeing from the deep state. From the from the people who aid in bed, the deep state is because. President trump with attorney bar. Can't really be compromise. to say president trump can't be. So. They're fighting to keep this stuff lockdown to keep it from coming out. Before president trump. Did we really see? Presidential candidates and all this kind of stuff just refusing to go away. They ask President, trump, or at the time businessman trump. Hey, if you lose the election where you go away, you guys. Will you accept the results of the election? He said I. Don't know I gotTa wait sepals done fair or not. Walk that far leave remember stuff. Now you've got Hillary Clinton. WHO hasn't left. And three and a half years later still going on TV writing books about how she lost blaming everybody except herself. And now here's the new. The here's a new line. It's been out there for a little while shows so I soon says new, but but. It's just curious because once again here. You have the left. You Have Hillary Clinton accusing. Donald Trump of what she has done herself what she is doing. Herself! I think it is. A fair point to raise as to whether or not if he loses. He's going to go quietly or not. Ready for that, but there have been so many academic studies and other analyses which point out that it's just a it's A. It's an inaccurate fraudulent claim. There isn't that problem, but all the games that are played in all of the photo I.. D.'s of any kind of restriction that can be imposed to try to keep the vote down in places that are going to vote for Republicans. That's the real danger to the integrity of our election. Real danger to the integrity of our elections. Is that people like Hillary Clinton now, not in jail. That's the real danger. In a she's left to her own devices to to to still foment. Hate! If trump loses. We have to be ready that he won't step down. Shut your mouth. You are the ones the understand this. Under the Obama Administration, this was the first time in American history the first time. That there was not a peaceful transfer of power. As a nation we have prided ourselves on that. The let so was so unwilling to accept the will of the American people. Left at such shock. Over there go. Did Child getting demolished? refused. To peacefully pass over. The government. Went on a witch hunt went on A. Russia collusion investigations had a bogus impeachment trial and this. Summer so. Woman. Dares to go on TV. You say trump loses. We have to be ready that he will not step down or you know what maybe shouldn't. For All. It's not GONNA lose. Maybe he should stay fourth third term. I'm GonNa talk about lawlessness. Who was practiced lawlessness more than yellow. Hillary. Clinton, he had really made it clear that he was more interested in the optics than the facts when the virus I hit and he kept saying you know we have fifteen cases. It'll be over soon, so you've got to begin and an with his total. Lack of leadership is indifference toward what this viruses has cost us, not only in lives, but in jobs and livelihoods, and the now, of course he doesn't WanNa hear from our leading infectious disease experts like Dr Chee. He doesn't want to hold the even the sham of the meetings that he used to hold to try to talk about it. He's he's hoping that it either goes away or it leaves our attention span so that he can get back to. You know pretending to be president. What you said a so nonsensical. If was a sham of of of a press conference why we want. Why would you want him to go back to it? And actually they weren't a sham of a press conference. This. It's frustrating. She opens her mouth. She tells her lies and I. Have to tell you that it's still you know I. Know I know know. I should be over it. But it's still so very frustrating. Because, we could read the stitches on a fastball. We know that they're what they're up to. We just pray of that. The Nation is not gullible, but you know what. They weren't that. Gullible back at twenty sixteen. And I don't think anybody that was with President. Trump back then as left. As a matter of fact I think he's probably picked up more people. Because of how successful this president has been. In the meantime, the governors who are responsible for the deaths of thousands are getting a complete and utter pass. The governors who have who have been incompetent through this whole thing. They're the ones that are being celebrated. Going to talk about Roger, stone who who was praising the president today I'll tell you why at eight forty. Say Sean Hannity Works Everyday to make America great again, listen at one on five fifty KFYI and on FM at ninety five point five hd two. You're listening to the sermon circus I. Your ring message to Harris. Look loss was smoking out called. I gotTA. Take it. You don't know what's going on to be anything. It could be anything. During the show that you know. They're they're rule breakers. And there are rule-breakers. Speaking of rule breaking Roger Stone always been a flamboyant character. he was one of the people that was working the beginning closely not closer, but he was. What he leaves. He belted being part of the trump campaign. and. He was a known associate with President trump of the deep state. Who I was just talking about. They went after him. They were now after him on bogus stuff. As a matter of fact, they manufactured ally trap for General Flynn. They we. A car. Michael Abernathy was Mike, my Nadi Rosa was a trump's a lawyer Cohen. Cohen They went after Roger Stone. You never flipped at all. But Rogers still ended up getting his sentence commuted. It was wild thing and I believe there was in your face to the deep state. Nobody only president. Trump's people are being harassed. None of these coup players or their associates are being harassed and I think the president has had enough. What happened when Roger Stone was arrested. What were they trying to get out of them? How did they want him to flip on President? Trump in the beginning of the case Sean I don't think that was their intention, but as they got closer and closer to having to issue the Muller report, and they realized that they had no Russian collusion because there was no Russian collusion. It was a hoax on July. Twenty four, th genie, re who is heading my prosecution within a muller team. That's extraordinary itself because she previously represented Hillary, Clinton and the Clinton Foundation and the illegal email. Email server case in the missing email case. She made it very clear to one of my lawyers after hearing, she asked to see him privately that if I would remember certain phone conversations I have with candidate trump if I would come clean, if I would confess that they that they might be willing to you know, recommend leniency to judge. Perhaps I wouldn't even serve any jail time and I didn't have to think about it very long. I said absolutely not there was no circumstance under which I would bear false witness against the President Xi. This is exactly how they twisted. A general Flan, but the they have more leverage. General Flynn helped firm until they threatened. His Kid is adult child. If you we will make my life miserable for him, we will find something wrong with them we will. We will file charges against him and that's when General Flynn gave in. They the kind of leverage on Roger Stone. They're trying to get him to cooperate trying to get him to flip it, he's. Not GonNa do it, not gonNA lie for you. then. They had the the problem when you have. One of the jurors was supposed to recuse herself because she had already political action against Roger Stone, but she was allowed to stay there. It was a mess. Roger Stone's I'M NOT GONNA lie I'M NOT GONNA, lie on the president and you can't make me Roger. Stone above all though I guess I'd have to say the most important thing. Here is the courageousness of the president's act I know there were many many many people who told him in an election year. Don't do this. Let Roger. Stone! Wait maybe for a pardon after the election. Sean I don't think I would have lived that long. Not with my asthmatic condition, not with now sixty. Kobe nineteen cases in that prison, so I deep deep affection for Donald Trump because I've known him forty years. He's a man of great justice and fairness. He's a man of enormous courage. I knew he would take some shots for this. But I think most people most fair minded people stand. He saved my life and at least on paper. He gave me a chance to fight for vindication. That's one of the things that's brilliant, because now. If you would've apart them, me wouldn't have still wouldn't have been able to go after the people that set him up like this. But now stone can. And I think that Roger Stone will. And immediately you had all of these Democrats out there complaining chastising the president. Look how can you let Roger? He was guilty Brett Hume Brit Hume, of Fox, lose had some words for those Democrats it seems to result in a staggering cases memory loss on the part of Democrats and other critics commutation. Remember remember. This was not a pardon. He stands convicted and remains convicted of stone and. No one thinks back. It wasn't too many administrations ago. Bill Clinton issued a series of pardons that appalled a lot of people, the most notable among them. Was the fugitive financier Marc rich and that was this became so notorious that Tutton himself later said it wasn't worth it. it looks like for all the world like a payoff, because denise rich rich's wife at given tons of money to the Democrats into Clinton's campaigns. That's how it works. That's how it works. But again to Brit Hume's point Democrats have conveniently forgotten about those very controversial apartments, and then you've got the Obama pardons. He pardoned convicts. No no problem with that whatsoever and most of these parties from the previous Presidents Day came on the last day that they were in office. Elise president trump. You know he's the. Type of game. You're part you're part in your pardon commuted sentence. He's not carrying. A with the pulse is Roger. Stone's this close to an election. This could be used against you. That's not how president trump operates. And now he's going to have a strong ally in Roger Stone but more importantly. By by getting Roger Stone Out of jail by getting them off. With the president is doing in my opinion. Is sending a strong message to the deep state of that. He's not going to stop either. It's not going to stop. Very frustrating news coming out of Washington DC. The Horowitz report will probably be put on hold until after the election more garbage game of playing. And yet we have this president who is not giving up? This is just. This is unprecedented that we have a president who was attacked every single day. Multiple Times a day. I'm talking from the media. They're not giving him cornered or not giving him anything. And yet he continues to work on behalf of the American people. It's amazing. That's why we can. We need to continue to pray for this president because it's going to get crazy in the next few months. You know it is. Hey at the top of the hour nine o'clock you stay tuned in the going to have a chance to win one thousand dollars and then. We're going to to talk about the photograph. That was a heard all around Arizona as once again. Our governor Lord Ducie has stepped in it big time and has proven that that There's a bit of hypocrisy going on, not just with him. But with governors all around the country, a two tiered system one for you. And one for the. Arizona Governor Doug. ducey photographs without. Shall. Say. Ladies and gentlemen. Ages. To serve at. Circus. TV address the headline from Newsweek magazine Newsweek Dot Com which means our governor has gone. National! A photo that recently surfaced shows A. Republican lavers Arizona's Republican. Say! They play Republican Governor Doug Ducey speaking with others at a at a graduation party while not wearing a mask nor practicing social distant. The. Governor who himself told citizens to do both. Blasted the photo as an attack at a smear at yes. Is, he put the A M d. that's one of the central themes. Of Governor Doug Ducey. was basically to social distance. Stay at home. You know were asking you to stay home on the couch and watch Netflix. I But we're asking you to do that. But not me. On Sunday, June twelfth a Phoenix based twitter user named Carter Santini posted the image of ducey standing at a backyard table in close proximity to other unmasked men. Yes. Wearing black cargo pants had his polo shirt tucked in his. Nike's on was holding a beer. Looking at the picture right now. Right across the picture. That is the caption governor. Ducey, that's not social distancing. The texts written across that that that the pick. The texts alongside the image indicated that it came from a July the six party at a time when Arizona was experiencing over three thousand, no confirmed corona virus cases a day. Remember. You are safer at home. The virus is is widespread, so if you don't need to go out. Don't go out unless you are Lord, do see. This is the second time that some. I got a picture of, wasn't he? A state forty four. I think he was. It high tables at the state forty four opened up on understand. That's that's all one a governor. ducey's favors steakhouses in that we can agree stateful before it's fantastic. But you know it's supposed to be on your cows watching Netflix. And if you're going to be seated before he was wearing a mask, police said he would only wear a mask if he had to be. You know the social distancing situations we'll see he was. He was standing around two or three people. Up Close and personal. I, know a lot of people that have contracted this and I want to tell you where they contracted it. A graduation party. At private gatherings in home. Again we don't want to see anybody get this, but we had graduations and parents have have gathered when this happens. It gives the opportunity to the individual tasks positive to participate in contact tracing. While! And here governor she is, he was at A. Was that a a graduation party we understand. The governor's office said that this was a smear attack that was factually incorrect. Create in allusion that the governor was out on the fourth of July weekend. Nice Riser Nice try now. We. Don't care whether the governor of the the fourth of July weekend. You got a picture of them. On Republic said it was a family event, it was a graduation much like the one he was talking about, and he stopped by to say happy graduation the twitter guy. The picture speaks for itself. That's what he said. June was just as bad a time to go to a party. July, the twitter speaks for itself, and you know what governor do see. It does wait. Why weren't you let a wedding? Weren't you at a wedding to? Then you fess up before you told everybody that they can't go to the graduations before you accuse families of having graduation, parties of spreading the covet. Didn't you admit that you went to a wedding? In terms of social gatherings where we are right now it's around groups of ten or less. When we get to face to that, that number expands to fifty We're not in face to yet were very close. We're headed in the right direction. is so. It's going to continue to be this idea around social distancing. I attended a wedding this past week, but it was a much smaller invite less. What was originally intended? Right right, it was much smaller. I went to the wedding, but you can't go. Hey you. I'll never forget he. He started to close things back down again because he was watching the television the first time when everybody went to the when everybody went to the you know the graduation parties. We're watching his graduation. And that's what spreading and then the second time. He said it was spread because of what he saw on the television. He saw people in bars. He saw people at water parks. He saw that and he realizes this is your fault. This is why the covert is spreading. Issued his. Latest her. Devastating decrees. So there's one takeaway. From today's press conference and the message that I want to share today. It's that you are safer at home. All arizonans are safer at home. And you can stay healthy at home. Governor Ducey is elitist. He gives orders out to you those proclamations to you, but he doesn't follow them himself. Now, he's got caught again. At the end of the day. Is probably the reason why. Governor Ducey's pandemic approval rating. has plunged to a new low. Thirty seven percent. Of those questioned in a new poll say they strongly disapprove of how governor. The governor is managing the situation. With another twenty six percent, saying somewhat approval disapprove. He's all over the place. He's managed to get his base on on the right, absolutely apoplectic and he has also managed to get the liberals. APOPLECTIC. Because of his duplicity. Lying? And living in a two tier system. He's above his own laws. He's meeting with folks and hobnobbing no masks, those social distancing. He's not even drinking a local beer. Governor Ducey. Just, just a just while a schools are trying to reopen No, actually they're not because the lefties that run them are not, but they have been proven to be really wrong outside of science. Talk about that in nine eighteen. You're listening to the conservative circus. I am ringmaster Jamesy Harris. The president and administration of talking about the need to go back to school. But if there's ever been an example of what federal federalism looks like, it's right now. The president can't force people to go back to school. You can't force states to go to school. That's what the job of the governor's look. The governors are laying back. Especially, the governor's in Blue States being all fearful. All the trump administration could do is send out this folks to talk about why we should be getting back to school. One of those folks is Kelly mcenaney, and she laid out the importance of sending kids back to school this fall by pointing to the words of the CDC director who said children are not very affected by this and typically are not spreaders in this, but I would. Would also point to the consequences of staying close. We have to look at the holistic health of the child. And when you have according to HHS, one fifth of all child abuse cases being reported by teachers and educational staff. We cannot stay close when you have DC, family child agency talking about sixty two percent decrease in abuse cases being reported. You cannot stay closed when even the? American Academy of Pediatrics talked about Morbidity and mortality. If schools stay shut down and seventy to eighty percent of mental children with mental health diagnosis received their hair in schools. The consequences are grave. If we stay shut down and there's a way for essential workers to go back to work just as our meat packing facilities did just as you on the media are essential workers. We believe our teachers are as well absolutely are. There is a way for them to go back. They can just go back. You have Dr. Scott Atlas. One of the doctors who would I, would say would not share the stage with Dr Foul cheap, because he's been blowing, their procedures suggestions. They're guidelines apart left and right up and down. and Dr Scott. Atlas is slamming the hysteria over reopening schools I think we have a different scale because that's just completely wrong. In contrary to all the science in why say when I say all science I'm talking about science from all over the world, not just in the united. States but Switzerland Sweden Canada France The Netherlands Australia Asia. I mean it's really totally contrary to the science, and here's The science I'm not sure how many times it has to be said, but the wristed to children from this disease for fatality is nearly zero. The risks to children for a significant illness is far less therm from seasonal flu, according to Jama Pediatrics, I mean this is totally antithetical to the data in the other thing that we have to. Obviously we know this by now. It's been confirmed all over the world. Children rarely transmit the disease to adults. So, what are we talking about here? What is this fear based on? We know what it's based on his based on politics. You have a you. You've been told to follow the a science. Just heard from Dr. Atlas and MSNBC something very extraordinary. They went and talked to some medical doctors, five of them across the United States and multiple doctors say that they don't have concerns that the kids will spread the virus at school. They're backing up a doctor Allison's played. Then they were asked a direct question. Would you let your kids go back to school? I will. My kids are looking forward to it just. Period absolutely. Absolutely They can. Station! Hesitation yes I have no concerns about sending my child to school in the fall I that my kids go back to school. So. All of them will let their kids go back to school. Because doctors. This is what they do for a living. They know the science. So it's amazing to me. That in the face of all of this. You get well. You get, politicians like Nancy Pelosi. That will stand in the way of the science because that's how important of politics is, we'll have to look after children. Our teachers custodians are many. Many people who are involved in the education of our children. Let's show. That we put children first and their education by putting the resources there, because without the resources. We shouldn't even be thinking about sending them back to. This is the woman who's in charge of those resources. This is the woman could make it happen very easily. Issue chose to, but she doesn't choose to. Because the game is politics. And because of that I'm here to tell you that as a parent, you're going to have to start thinking about some alternatives. If your parent, your child to public schools ascend yourself to government schools. I'm here to tell you. The government schools once again are proven proving that they don't care. About. You or your child while we're watching, here's an agenda. The tried a punk president trump. President trump's doing his part to make sure he's talking about this issue. He's doing his very best to make sure that schools are open these he doing the carrot and stick. You've got betty divall out there. Betsy Devos out there saying that she's you know what? We're GONNA. Pull your funding. President trump out there, saying you know what we're going to increase your fund day. Trying to get the schools, the governors, the the principles, the superintendents trying to get them to do the right thing by the kids. But, just like when you get, this is what happens when you get socialist charges things. They'll use a kiss for fodder. They'll use the kids just like read for Ed they'll use. The kids held them hostage. Hold you hostage until they get what they want. The teachers you out in in Los Angeles. WHO said they're not GONNA go back to work. Until. The, the government gets rid of charter schools. That's what we're dealing with. And that's my parents need to look for alternatives. In if you live in the great state of Arizona, you do have alternatives. Black lives matter. And racial hoax. I got a I got three or four reasons. That you can use an argument. The proved that America is not a racist country. We'll do that coming up next. Riley update this morning nine fifty, now one five fifty am. On FM Ninety five point five hd two. You're listening to the conservative circus I. M Ringmaster James. Is America a racist Qadri. You, my saying. Is Only racist if you wanted to be. And we do have some folks out there. That wanted to be racist. maxine waters would be one of them, and not only. Is She saying that that the Americans are racist country? She said that if you are a supporter of trump. You're a racist. When you talked about this need for trump, and those who support him to want to have absolute power, and to believe that it is their right and their responsibility to ensure that blacks and people of color and others do not rise to any level of a influence and power significant that would caused them not to be in total charge of this country. The listen to what she's speaks. Listen to what she's saying. Total charge do not let. Blacks rise to a level. Look how much power she's giving you only she's not giving you power. She's trying to give you blame. She's trying to give you guilt. There are five really really good reasons. Why Anybody who tells you that America's racists. They're wrong. They're wrong. And first and foremost is. It. There's so much racism in America. Why? Do, we have so many. False claims racism. Why are there so many outright race hoaxes? We can go to Jesse small that WHO said that he was attacked by by trump supporters, pouring bleach over his head and putting A. Noose around his neck and Yellow Maga- country, foss. Your latest. So have you heard about the latest one? Here's the latest ray soaks. You got the cat a guy named Isaiah. Martin Twenty one year road at Texas. A and M University. He claimed that racist notes were put on his car last month. The notes said things like you don't belong here and all lives matter on gay. That's racist allies. Matter I guess Oh. And the third had the N. Word in it. Oh No. After an investigation by the university police say determined that Martin had put the notes on his own windshield. We're getting more and more and more of this. There's these these racists hoax to me. Are just evidence that We're not racist. If, we were racist. We wouldn't have hoax. We would have real examples. Number two. We are always getting hit over the head for slavery, constant reminders of of slavery. Who is this got representative Sheila jackson-lee? This yesterday up. You're talking about slave reparations. We need sleigh reparations. If you take this year, values of American on its face on the words, the Declaration of independence, all created equal the constitution to create a more perfect union those sheer words. If you didn't have any other actions would say that everybody should be in a place of equality, right? That is not the case. What are you talking about? Call? The HR forty the commission to study and develop reputation proposal reparation. Moses okay. Go because you're still talking about. Polls proposals we're not equal. I'm sorry. If, there were great deal racism in America today. There will be no reason for us to be constantly talking about the confederacy confederate statues slavery Yada Bing Boom. That whole garbage, the sixteen nineteen. project was labeled false and misleading. I don't care. That won an award. It was a lie. Speaking of lies the reliance allies is further evidence that we are not a racist country. When you get the USA Today talking about the Democrats did not search civil war, and the KKK was not another arm of the of the Democrat Party, when it is just embedded in history when you gotta lie like that to prove your point your point. Is Not valid. Here's another reason why we know. America's along racist country. Would you immigrate to a racist country? Would you emigrate to a country where you know you're going to be a second? Maybe third or fourth tier citizen now. We've got so many people from Africa and so many people from from the islands from the Caribbean. Come into this country for opportunity for chances. They laugh at your assertion. The of this, they laugh. Okay. As some of the loudest anti be an protesters are from Africa and the Caribbean telling people to shut up and go down. Get Education. You're wasting your time and your beclouding yourself. When you've come face to face with tribalism. Africa style. You know you can speak from a from a point of reference says very difficult for most Americans come from. Now. We got a lot of people immigrating to this country, and they wouldn't do it if we were racist if there was systemic racism. And here's the other reason. Because we are so often just preoccupied. With of of I guess with. Could call microaggressions. There's only one race. The human race is a racist micro aggression. This is what we're having to put up with. And because of that, I am here to say we don't. We don't have that problem anymore. Are their biggest here and there. Yeah, BUT SYSTEMIC RACISM INSTITUTIONAL RACISM It died in nineteen, sixty four. Nineteen sixty four. That was a civil rights pill. Want you to hear from Thomas Sowell a great economists of what we can expect with Joe Biden. We'll do that coming up next. More Rushbo Rushing rush limbaugh today at ten on five fifty KFYI ON FM Ninety five point five hd two. You're listening to the conservative circus I ever ring. Message AFC hairs maxine waters. We played a little bit earlier. She said trump supporters believe in their right to ensure that blacks don't have power again of the things that they accuse the right of they do themselves. There are so many greater very influential or could have been even more influential America's of African descent out there like a like a a Thomas Oel we'll talk about him the second. We've got Condoleeza Rice. We've got Clarence Thomas. C. They're conservatives. They're on the other side of the aisle. Therefore, they don't get the respect. Therefore as maxine waters saying you know these people. Are is insured that they don't have power. They don't have influence. Now Thomas Old. He's an economist wrote a lot of excellent books. He Is Retired he retired recently, but he's still can't help himself, so he still writes. You still puts out articles. And it is piercing. And, he's been so press yet. He's been able to to tell you what's going to happen. In certain segments of our economy, because of what the politics is going on how the economy is doing. And what he looks at the landscape. He sees he's. He's given us a very dire. Has To do with the choice that America's going to make. This November if The. Election go goes to buy that. That is a good chance of the demographic will control all three breath all the two branches of Congress and the White House and considering the kinds of things that they're proposing on. That could well be the point of no return for the sniper, the point of return for this country. And it's not because of abidance vision. It's because WHO's behind, bite it right now bite. His policies are being written by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Cossio test I'm not I'm not lying? I'm not making that up. That's that's what it is. Right now, the people that are propping up Joe Biden are so far to the left. The time of soul believes that if we vote by and if he gets elected. Is the is no return. There's no coming back from it. Because of the policies that will be put in place like the green new deal like defunding police. Basically! What you would be doing is putting Marxist into into the office Marxist. We've had one before. His name was Barack Hussein, Obama. But this crew that's out there now. They're even further to the left then Obama and as a matter of fact, they make the Obama camp who are already left us a little bit nervous. Because see they're already in place. They're already getting paid. They're already getting. You know living a life of comfort. This new batch radicals. Would make life very uncomfortable for the elite. In, more people talked to about their sonic just like Thomas Sowell. They've been around. They've seen things. They know how the game is played didn't know establishment deal deep state. Wash-, Washington. And what they're seeing this time is something very very different. The people who did not go away after they were defeated in Twenty Six sixteen were the Democrats worthy left us, and they unleashed something that they no longer control. And that's her their Marxist. Base. And we thought they would probably pull back a little bit. After the loss after Bernie Sanders got screwed once again, but now may have been wrong about that. Why because basically Biden turned his camp over the Sanders? And Sanders and Alexander Cosco tells the brain trust. So. Yeah, let us get serious. Let us not take any of this for granted. This is going to be the election of. The Republic. And I do believe we have the right person in place, but boy. Do you have to boy? They're going to continue to churn out this racism. They're going to continue to churn out slowing down the economy. Because basically, that's all they have left. I'll be on this afternoon. Would Russell Hunter at five thirty then I'll be back in the morning at six. AM wanted. Thank you so much for hanging out in the center ring of the Conservative Circus Bill O'Reilly is up next in your chance to win the one thousand dollars.

Is Carli Lloyd Better Than Ever?

"This show is presented by Hulu, which has live sports, watch live games, and all your favorite teams live on Hulu. No cable required. Live TV plan is required. Restrictions apply. Welcome into episode eleven of ESPN AFC special coverage of the two thousand nineteen women's World Cup in France alongside Kate Markgraff who played twelve matches over three different people. World Cups of the US national team. I'm Sebastian Salazar, you love that every day every day. It's a different nugget. In case you're just tuning into the pot, every every day, I try to find a different way to introduce Kate. Yes, her her honors her teammates over a career are that, long the list that I think, we'll make it through the whole tournament, something different. Although at the end, we might run out of the good stuff. So maybe won't be so flattering today was the start gate of the final round of group phase play, which is exciting. Because now we're handing out tickets to the round of sixteen feels like kind of the opening of the tournament where everybody's you know, feeling each other out feels like that part of the tournaments gone. Like, now, it's for real, there's definitely an R N is analyst where you're you make these assumptions about teams. And then sometimes you are dead. Wrong. And then sometimes you're like I wonder and then you're confirmed and other situations. I think the groups that were tighter got exposed earlier, the teams and that'll benefit them more, I'm a little bit nervous, the United States out of all the groups that group is the weakest group in terms of the haves and the have nots and it's translates into their performances Sweden, and US a has a rich tradition. Lots of resources Thailand. Chilly, not so much. So that is the one takeaway, that I have for everything. It's like, okay, the United States and Sweden there tournament is just beginning starting on Thursday. So today, we saw groups a and b wrap up France Wynn's group, a Germany wins group B, we'll get to all that a little bit later but we're still just a few hours, remove really from the United States three nothing win over Chile on Sunday. Carli Lloyd, one of the big story lines there. She got the start. She got a couple of goals both coming in the first half. She did miss a penalty at the end. But when you have a good day like that. Get a couple of goals in a World Cup game. The only way you can possibly finish it off is to speak with our Julie Foudy. So here's Julie and Carly from I believe the team hotel after Sunday's victory over cheated. Thank carly. You are the first player set another record tonight to score in six consecutive World Cup matches. How did you feel out there folk? Great now is going to get a ninety. Records- records. Honestly, I just wanna win a World Cup and another World Cup and help the team in any way possible. But, you know, great performance, you know, we had a lot of changes out there tonight and it was great to see everybody on the pitch. And you know some some good services set-piece goals. So it was really good. What message do you think you sent to the coaching staff tonight? I don't know. I've been trying to send a lot of messages every game. But, you know I it's just nothing changed. You know, I'm just trying to be better than I was in my previous performance trying to be better every single day. And this really is the best version of me that there ever has been and, you know, I know that my Bility's there, I know I can contribute, whether that's starting playing ninety whether that's coming off the bench. I'm going to be ready. So we'll see what happens. But I will be ready for anything. Tell us about that goal celebration after your first goal, please. We'll actually Lynn. Z her an who sits next to me in the locker room. She actually mentioned to me. Hey, if we score a goal, we're going to do a just a really quiet, golf clap, and I'm like, okay, cool. So she said, you know, obviously celebrate, you know the way you want. But that's what we think will be funny. So, you know, I, I did my, my celebration and then went over to the bench, and they all just kinda did the did the little clap, which was fun. But, you know, those, those team celebrations are fun. And that's what they're all about seven changes in the lineup tonight still dominating performance by the team. How good is this team feeling about itself right now? I think really good. You know, I think you know, over the course of two games. We had twenty players step out on the field, and that's truly remarkable, and we knew going into this is gonna take twenty three players it's still going to take twenty three players to win this. But now, we had a real this leaves up because we got a mountain to climb and Sweden's not going to be easy. It's gonna be a tough match. We've obviously, you know, made it into the knockout rounds. But we gotta take care of Sweden. I and. Yeah one game at a time. Congratulations. Art kit. So here from Carly there. She does mention the record or Julie. Did he's now scored in six straight World Cup games? Dating back to the two thousand and fifteen World Cup. That indeed is a World Cup record. The one line of that interview that jumps out to me is, when she says this is the best version of me that there's ever been you've been around for all of the versions of Carli Lloyd from the beginning as a teammate, and as a broadcaster, you've seen her grow. Do you agree with that statement? I think that currently has a way of framing every situation that she's in, in a manner in which from, which she can be confident, so when she is playing in four four two and one of the two center, mid midfielders, and she's asked to go forward as the ten like as well as playmate incentive others and help defend a little bit. She did. And she thrived in that and she found a way to turn it into this is the best version of man. I think it's just telling that I, I feel like she says this all the time, but in different ways it just really depends. On how much the coaches lending or play. You know, there are times in the past where Carli Lloyd has been benched due to poor performances, and honestly, rightfully so in my opinion, and she gets upset about it, but then she goes back in, and the beautiful thing is. I don't know if you call second chances after benching because there's been so many of them that, then she just destroys it. So I don't know if you're a coach, if you kind of know that this is coming, and you kind of bring her down, you know out for the rebound, right? Like, sometimes I'm wondering, like, that's maybe what I would do with code of coach. I would know that I need her fresh in June. So I'm just going to kind of bring her down, like Pat summitt her like breaker down a little bit and slowly, give her all the resources around her that she can build herself back up and just seeing that trajectory before you saw it in two thousand eleven she gets benched. You saw it in two thousand eight she was playing decently. But in the Olympics, she turned it around, so that she ends up scoring the school against Brazil that had us winning it. And she was excellent. Defensively that game we didn't have much offense. But the one chance she had she connected. Beautifully. She gets benched in another major tournament. And then she slowly builds back in, because someone else got injured sandbox got injured, then she goes back in then she does excellent. She doesn't give that spot backup. So I would say, Carli Lloyd has always been one to figure out a way to frame the situation, mentally whether and then through her words, whether I work harder than everybody I should be playing is, she's always giving her self confidence. And it's so funny watching all the different players, and how they psychologically deal with the pressure. It's unbelievable. The amount of pressure that you're under. And that's her default. Some people are self deprecating like an Emily summits as a self self-deprecation person, right? Alex Morgan's like always setting goals and talking about those goals repeal the crazier the better right? It's a way of distractions because some people need absolute distraction or play well I hope solo needed distraction to play. Well, Julie Foudy need distraction to play while so for me it's fascinating to see how everyone else responds. So Carli Lloyd has this reputation as. A big game performer like a big goal score. And I think you and I just soon that, like everybody knows all those, but the reality is that Carl he's been doing this for such a long time. I'm not sure. Maybe if people have been following from the beginning of career. So let's go back through kind of some of the greatest hits. If you will, of Carli Lloyd, I think everybody will probably think, and I'm gonna work from present-day backwards. Right. Okay. So instead of reverse kinda universe reverse chronological. Right. We're going back to we're gonna we're gonna end at the kind of origin stories cigarettes may you know that. Right, exactly. Yes. Yes. Actually, is literally on my rundown, Carli Lloyd resumes. What's written? I didn't read, let's go back to the thank you for that. Let's go back to the US is last major tournament the Olympics, we were there for that one now might not feel like a major goal now. But probably the, the high water Mark of that team was in the group phase when they beat France. And if you remember that game Kate, we were we were in the stadium for that hope solo stood on her head US probably didn't deserve to win, but Carli Lloyd gets a late goal in the eighty second minute game winner. And that's just maybe the latest in a big tournament against a big rival late goal that gets you some important points. Of course in two thousand fifteen everybody remembers the final write the hat trick to in the first five minutes three in the first sixteen what people might not remember as clearly, the semi-final against Germany. And she scored the penalty to put the US up one nothing in the seventieth minute and more importantly, is that there was a lot of pressure on that penalty because it was just after Celia sausage had pushed her shot wide left on her penalty against hope. Solo in that same semi finals? So there's a lot of tension there. And she gets the big goal two thousand twelve she gets both goals in the two one win over Japan in the Olympic final sheets. An early header any right-footed blast that is just like quintessential Carli Lloyd, hitting it from outside the area, two thousand eleven the quintessential moment of two thousand eleven eleven is the cross from Meghan repeal Abby. Wambach right. Carli. Lloyd plays it out to Meghan repeal. That's a stretch on that stretch. I don't come back to a good one two thousand eight the Olympic final. It's a one nothing victory over Brazil Marta. If not at her peak pretty close to her peak. She gets the game winner in the ninety six minute a shot from just outside the box left-footed surprise surprise some of the biggest goals in Carli Lloyd's, career have come from distance. Always something that she could do. Well, I wonder you were on that field in two thousand eight what do you remember about Carly's big game performance that night? The thing that makes Carl unique is her ability to concentrate in these key moments or other players might be taking a break that shot that she scored an away. It kinda came from something that was just playing and we're able to win the ball back. She's takes got broken play. Right. And then she couldn't converts on it and her, I thought is always to go, so the combination between her concentration, and then her decision making in these pivotal late game moments is the reason why for training has been, so beneficial to, to put her in the situation, you know, she always talked about how she's so fit and. Wrong, and stronger, everybody else better than everybody else. But of course, she thinks that and she should because it shows, right? Because she's the one that's executing in the eighty eighth minute when you see, for example, today when the Renard not executing in the seventy th minute, right. So hasn't trained herself to the fatigue, that then you still know how to capitalize when you're dead tired. So being Carly right. Big game. Moments use the one who shows up it's all because their ability to concentrate in those moments and she's been starting games you can go all the way back to the two thousand seven World Cup. She wasn't starting every match that tournament by thinks started either two or three of the five matches that the US played my one other question on Carly at this point Kate would be, how many minutes, does she need you sit on yesterday's show and you've been pretty adamant about this. You don't think that there's much wiggle room in jail Alice's mind as far as Carli Lloyd becoming a starter to she need, then thirty minutes? Can she make her impact in fifteen in ten like what is Karl Lloyd need at this point in her career in terms of playing time off the bench? It just depends on who she is. Going in force performance level at this point, she is going in as, as a nine right? She's going in for Alex Morgan. So it depends on where Alex Alex Morgan off after sixty minutes, probably. Right. Well, it just depends. Right. And then just McDonald equipped herself very well. Not that you're going to go to just because just has not does not have the experience, nor is improving that she can be big game but she did have a header clean off the crossbar yesterday. And then when they put Carly down in the eight after they put Jess McDonald. And as a center striker they input Carly down. She was slow. I don't know if you noticed her her touch is, she can't catch up to her touches quickly. She could. Right. So she's best in, when she can just exert. Those powerful two or three yard bursts running onto things, which makes her only really nine. So are you willing to the only way, I think that works? If you go if you want, Alex and Carla Hills anytime you've got to go to a four four two and have her kind of play how Abby played when Abby and Alex refers paired together and abbey's always intended recipient on that. I ball and Alex Morgan is always peeling off to the left. Pick up the second very interesting. I think of Carli Lloyd is play who doesn't need a ton of time. That's my initial thought. When I asked that question, it's like, yes, of course she's going to want thirty minutes. But when you look at just how like brutally efficient she tries to play, it may be one of those who are like, sorry, Carl you've proven that you don't need much time to act. So like, and I think keeping a player like Alex Morgan confident and playing is also important so watching not just it's not just how you get Carli Lloyd on the field for Jill Ellis, its who you're taking off. There's so many moving pieces to all this stuff that I think she's got some big decisions, and I would say Kate, like unclear or difficult decisions still remaining, and how she manages that will determine whether or not her World Cup cam- campaign is successful. I mean that's in this man management has been superb up to this point. And yeah, you got players that are unhappy because they're not playing. They they're open about it or there would prefer to play different positions. But they're asked to play the ones that they currently are placed at, but she's been clear with. Them. She has told them this is where it's at. So how she manages, the next part will will determine her, her success last time around July was proved she can manage the Abby Wambach situation. Very well let's see how things go this time. We have another interview coming up from Meghan ripping also with Julie Foudy, but first, who is paying Tobin heath Carli, Lloyd, Mallory Pugh, another US.

Live TV plan required. Restrictions apply. Learn more at Hulu dot com. All right. We mentioned that Julie Foudy has been very busy in France. You did speak with Carli Lloyd. She also spoke with Meghan repeal. Let's listen to that interview now Megan seven changes to the lineup. How do those changes actually impact you going into this game pas? Actively I think obviously more people got a minutes in their legs, more goals, spread around getting everyone on the same page with a good feeling. And then for those of us who played the other night, get a little bit arrest in kind of turns the tournament into hopefully a five game bounce for us and not a seven the last time you all played Sweden in a major tournament was the Olympics in two thousand sixteen of course, that quarterfinal loss. How fresh is that in your mind? And how much do you all talk about it? Not that fresh to be honest. I mean it's been a long time. A feel like our squads very different their squads very different a whole new tournament. Obviously, we know they beat us and had a good game plan and feel like that was an area of weakness for us when team sit back on us like that. So we've worked a lot on that since then and focused on that. And hopefully better beside Thailand, intially or not Sweden. This is going to be a different game. What will fans who are watching the game see from this US team that they didn't perhaps e in the first two games. I mean it's going to be way, tougher obviously just from physical standpoint, you know, they're a much stronger team much more organized, you know, defensively and tactically, just a lot smarter than I think the, the other two teams. So it's gonna be a battle, we're going to have to be really patient, and you're probably not going to see five goals, or three goals, or maybe even two goals in the first half. We're going to have to break them down and kind of play the game within. The game in order to open it up for us with the mindset going into this game knowing a win or a draw in Sweden, possibly set you up and that quarterfinal against France. I mean wins for us we want obviously to have a good performance but in the World Cup. It's all about winning each game winning sort of each little battle and moving onto the next. I think you start thinking about trying to set up who you're going to play. That's a little bit of a slippery slope. So if that, if that happens, and we advanced and fortunate enough to play France and a quarterfinal, then we'll welcome that. Thanks, darling. Kate bears, Meghan repeal. No. With our Julie Foudy repeated certainly, one of the more popular players on this team in recent years, I found it interesting. They're talking about the Olympic defeat against Sweden. Like, yeah. That's a while ago. And it was it was three years ago at this point. But I wonder how long those like big hard to swallow defeats last I don't wanna go down negative memory lane. But you had a few in your career like how long does it really take you to get over as less a ton of big games? Does that make you feel in you part of the reason why lost and I was you? That was not me guilty conscious of. Don't frighten me over there. I think you'll never forget those losses. And if you don't figure out a way to use that loss as a way to motivate yourself and instead, make that tear down your confidence, then you're never gonna go far in the sport. And you will never get this level. So they they're not thinking about it. I agree to the degree that maybe teams in the past have because there has been a lot going on in the past three years for them off the field. So I think they have been disrupted a little bit in terms of the typical processing of what you do. And maybe that's a good processing that just like you. Don't put unnecessary attention on something once you've internalized it and moved on. But I think that's something that has got to motivate you a loss. I you know, you always hear there's always, I called the ninety one hers because ninety nine is like it really was like six people driving the show and ninety nine and those are all the people that played in ninety one. And they tell the story about when they lost ninety five they had a. Picture of the Norwegian team, celebrating in front of them when they lost in the semifinals, and I wasn't on the team in ninety six but that motivated them and in ninety nine what motivated moon abated me was knowing that they lost ninety five though I wasn't on the team yet. And then what? So I always use those past defeats as a way that whenever you're not actually hundred s focuses need to your mentally, not in that sweet spot that zone. They call it the interpersonal zone of personal functioning, something like that. Are you at you're such a nerd in such a key? I mean that in the most complementary way possibly let me tell you gotta get yourself that way, you know. And so that's what those losses due repeat. Also mentioned Sweden kind of exposing an area of weakness during that Olympic defeat. I'll ask you the question how much better than three years later is the United States have actually breaking down those teams that choose to sit in deep, they are better than that. They have more tools and arose. Lavelle and amuse who can sit on the half turn. I thought when we play when we watched them we are at that game. We called that game together sub with Arlo in Brazil, there were players in that midfield that couldn't sit on the half turn in between lines and set play. Now they have those players and Samuel. And they have those players in. Rose Lebel what I'm concerned about though, is they are weaker on the transition in two thousand sixteen. They played a four four two they had four players in the midfield. They are now playing a four three three and yes, it can look like a four five one at time, but really you're repeat, no in heat are not giving you a defensive options or especially re Pino is not known for her defending heath is a little bit faster and tracks back a little bit more readily, and their more susceptible with that one less player giving the backline cover to get hit on a counter Sweden will not come out like this Sweden will not sit back to the degree that they sat back against United States in two thousand sixteen but they will sit back more than we've seen them play thus far because they know it's, it's hard. It's hard that we see it. We saw today with Nigeria versus France. She made her Megan Rubino debut with the national team in two thousand six you're a team with her early time with the national team is really marked by serious injury. Like she the couple early ACL injuries that really took her out. Out of some some prominent tournaments or at least even probably having a chance to compete for a roster spot in prominent tournaments but two thousand six to two thousand nineteen is a long time. That's thirteen years. What do you remember about the repeal that I came into camp? And how is she a different player now? He's a more complete player in a more consistent player. Megan repeal has moments of genius in the earlier stages of her career partly because of immaturity and partly because of injuries and having a hard time, we're, we're regaining and remaining fit is she would patties moments, but then those moments would be in, you know, lots of time in between and that time there was always these these situations. I remember two thousand ten where they were benching her, and they were serious talk for the twenty eleven if she was going to get bench. And then I think she did in the first game Lauren holiday. All of a sudden was playing left outside mid because of that defensive work. Great piece that Pia wanted a lot of. So you've seen a player since then. Adopt more do what she needed to do to stay on the field and her consistently brilliant moments. When healthy. Happen. A lot more often where she'll have stretches of a game where she's brilliant and games. And she's linking games together where she's so good. And right now her ability to connect on the service on the top of the box in read off a Tobin heath, or Christian press, or whoever serving it in her ability for one in two time volley half volley is impeccable. And that is a big reason why she's on the field arts. We've heard from Meghan routine. Oh and Carli Lloyd, thanks in large part to Julie Foudy. We always appreciate her work in France. Time now to recap some of the games from Monday, we'll start with group B action next. But first, a quick break. Well, then Kate, let's dive straight into group b here with the standings coming into the day, Germany in first place, Spain, and second China, third South Africa fourth now Spain and China were tied on points with three Spain had a slightly better goal differential. Germany, just need a point against South Africa to win the group. They got all three thanks to a four nothing win Spain, and China a draw would see both through, and you'll never Kate. Guess what happened judging by those few powerhouses in the box, I'm gonna guess it was a low scoring affair was a scoreless draw zero zero. Spain goes through second and China goes through third. I want to talk about that game a little bit more in depth. But let's start with Germany South Africa as we mentioned, Germany gets a four nothing win as far as lineups go. We finally did see Lena Mogole get the start. She also got a goal as Deborah. It's a loophole and. Pop not in that order. I think it was a loophole actually I then Deborah's pop and Moghul into the second half Kate before the match you tweeted, and you can follow Kate on Twitter at K, A T, and a arcade. G. R. A F, Kate Mara, jer hashtag sheriff Sherman. He needs result, but more important, a performance without their star. Hashtag motto, John, did they get that performance today? Kate. They were playing in some much weaker side, they needed to be able to convert on their chances as a higher rate than what they were. They weren't creating a ton on the first and second games and give credit to China and Spain. Right. China did it by bunkering and having compact offense Spain did it by holding possession and limiting the number of times Germany got on the ball but Germany today when they had the opportunities and, and aided by poor goalkeeper from South Africa they converted. And it was who, who was converting loopholes, for some reason, MVP Martinez tech Lindbergh, you got it like I'm getting better. She finally put her in, and that's one thing, I don't think they're going to make a run. If loopholes is not in 'cause she's just is she gives you so much in that six you sits in that center med? And she gives stability to a very attacking group, and then she put Buell up top, so we're getting speed. And that's a sub and they got given. And who's on the right and there, they just basically played a fast lineup to counteract South Africa, who is the slowest of the three African teams. But I would say argue to say, maybe the most organized, but they're physically lacking compared to the other two, and I think Germany matched that physicality took advantage of maybe a fitness space differential for South Africa and a poor goalkeeper in there. We'll put goals weight and get competence for other people. But especially pop this player needs to score. She's so dangerous in the air. She missed a sitter earlier on and I was like, oh, no. This is not good for Germany, and then she was able to convert and you can just see the pressure just wash away. Right. Because when you're a goal score and you're not scoring that becomes the story even if you're. Okay with your team winning. But the media reminds you that you're not scoring and then it gets in your head. I'm always interested because no matter what soccer football like, two, people can watch the same match and come away with just two different opinions. Actually felt like Germany had a really poor finishing day today. Even though they scored and were up three nothing and in control, you mentioned Lumbini, the South African goalie a thought she was complicit in at least two or three of the goals. And then a couple of goals are really just set pieces that hang in the air organization, four Orgainzation defensively, and, and, you know, credit to Germany. Somebody's gotta throw their head at it and get it in. There was a couple chances pop early on MRs just a tone. I'll sit and I know it's balancing. It's a little bit behind her. But to go over the Gulf from there a player like that I was disappointed hoot as well with Donna chance across the goal. So I, I don't know that I was. As convinced by Germany today just on that alone. I think they've benefited a lot from, you know, kind of South Africa's lack of quality, I want to move on to Jennifer Mahjong, because we do have a little bit of an update of tech Limburg spoke on Sunday and a quote was, and this is translated from German. So I'm doing my best quote, a long way to think about playing for motto, Sean. It's very difficult with forecast, Vaas tech Limburg continued in the end, it will also have to do with how Jenny can compensate for the pain, she will endure. Let's remember, it's a, a broken toe one report and said that she's not coming back. Best case scenario until the semifinals, so Kate, no mater. John for this team. Do you think they can make it till the semi-finals without her? If that is indeed, the case, I think they can make the semis of shoal plays out of her mind, the goalkeeper, who is coming back from you souls. Right. Eighty big if and she's, she's a top goalkeeper goalkeeper can save you games. They can't win you games. And then it's going to be up to other people. Picking up the slack. But if you're telling me that Germany's best chance at this point to get to a finals at their goalies going to stand on their head. I think that's a markedly different outlook on Germany than I would have had pre-tournament, and that's I feel like you're lawyering with us in little. I think that's key for them though. I think if you look at who they possibly could face you're going to face some unbelievably attacking sides like teams that are not built on defense teams that are built on offense Jiri as we look at how those yeah it could be an area. And it could be the other. I feel like we had either Netherlands, Australia at some point. Get out of group c which could be Australia. Brazil Italy, any one of those three. Right. So that's what I'm talking about. They're going to need a strong goalkeeper 'cause that back line is one hundred percent set. She keeps changing because member MVP took over the team this year. So she is what this is now her seventh or eighth game squad. So you're going to rely on those experience players. But it definitely happens their chances. It would be quite the story if they're able to perform without marshawn. So South Africa's out of the tournament of we bid farewell to that too many final thoughts on a team that we got to see now three times, and I think did bring some things to this tournament. This is a club and a team that had captain has started her own club in an own women's soccer professional league in South Africa because there wasn't one. This is a team that is just starting to get going, and they're doing it because they're getting some resources even though they did not leave this tournament with victory. They leave with exposure, and they leave with respect. Agreed. One thing I always found myself drawn to the South African team because they have in desert a coach of the program, right? Somebody who was born of the program, who put you know, two decades of work into the program and is now leading it. And you don't always see that at the higher levels of women's football. So I like at least that direction that they've decided to go with. They have a player in Tempe. Got Lana scored that first goal against Spain. That was just a total LASSO. And I think that for me we, we think about what these teams who are new to this level, getting moments that was a great goal put them up for a moment. It gave them their moment. The other thing I would acknowledge about South Africa. And I think it's something that we see with a lot of these teams. So again, new to this level and maybe underprepared when they face off against the real world elite is where I saw South Africa fail if you wanna call it that is late games and onset pieces a lot of the time. And to me, those things that Layton game is fitness. Right. So are you in? Fully professionalised setting which we know a lot of these players are not. And then set pieces something you work on. Are you having camps or you having those opportunities, so I'm not making an excuse for the South African players? But I am pointing you to some of the context in which it makes sense why they're not at the level that some of their competition is any often find that with teams that don't have the preparation or even fields. I mean, I've been to Africa and Ben coaching I've coached there still somewhat US State Department. Yeah, there was like working with smelly and refugees in Ethiopia in doing that. And, you know, one has a left shoot, another kid has the right shoe and they look like they're fifteen but they're really twenty-five because malnutrition, but the fields, would I notice where that, and I met the Ethiopian national team coach there and the fields are not regulation. So imagine trying to prepare on how to defend set-pieces, collectively now this is a big global statement. I'm not saying this is exactly what happens. But this is not uncommon in countries where maybe development or resources football fields are what we, you know, we have. America, and it wasn't regulation size or even close regulations is so that fifteen yards shortage that it has your only ten yards away from the box, right? That's a lot different to learn how to defend set piece, because those gaps in between you in between the three players that usually line up on the six when you do a mixture of zone man-to-man marking is big is your margin of error is a lot smaller on the small fields. And when you play on regulations, I guess, a lot bigger. That's one thing I remember from my time over there. So. Yes, that is the one thing and you can see it's organization. Those are things that can that, that only work through time. And if you're not given time you're going to get exposed at this level. So South Africa out of the tournament Germany win the group the other game in this group Spain and China as we mentioned it finished zero zero Kate. The story of this game was the story of the tournament from Spain more of the same possession without penetration. I think at one point. So when did someone take a picture of me? You're struggling to stay up high like lying on at hard time sleeping last night. And these are the two games, and multitasking is not my gym anyway, and trying to keep track two games, and we have the two TV's up and I'm watching Spain. And I'm literally getting lulled to sleep like and that's what they wanna do defenses. But the thing is like, and then people would come in to talk to us, and like, oh, they stopped talking to us because Raleigh student TV where you stop talking. Let the play by play guy takeover to announce what's going to happen, next and I'm like, oh, don't worry about their nothing is going to come from it. And I mean right. And I'm being snarky joking. So don't don't come at me, but it was true. We knew that, even if there was a breakdown, we knew that they wouldn't convert, and it is just if ales to impress you know, and I was looking at what they've done. They've got. They've scored three goals. Spain advances really without any sort of conviction. They score three goals to which from Hermosa penalties one against South Africa and only one goal from the run a place for all that possession that they have they lack somebody that can put the ball in the back then that they were much. Better today in terms of actually getting shots on goal. But is just it's, it's, it's painful to watch. Yeah. I mean it's almost. And I say this with with respect, it feels like like an SNL skit like no no, no. No, no, no. I mean it's like almost comical, Spain in the final third eye and I'll give you the example. We're watching the game. It's gotten to the second half. And we've been like, come on. Spain. It was like the fifty second minute and number twenty two. If you've watched Spain, it all, you know who this player is not he, he got because she's been in some really good spots. She got him behind a lot against Germany. She goes on a breakaway and it was one of those like, breakaways from midfield. And somebody had is you're mentioning just walked into the room and we're like we were literally like, oh, my gosh. Look, it's a break when we were like not he's not gonna score. And so was that. Oh, I hate to like laugh at it. But it's like my gosh, you know it's not good enough. It's not enough to win a World Cup. It's not his it's staggering how right? It's not just that they don't finish. There are times where you are screaming at the shoe. But this is the problem. The reason why we're getting animated. And we're being a bit snarky about this is this is an organization and a governing body that basically left out key players. In this cycle, because they protested from the last the last coach and they protested, the lack of resources, a lack of preparation and the coach, and they wanted to coach fires specifically. They were not prepared for the two thousand fifteen way up where they. And they left players that are good enough to be on this team that can finish off the roster. So for me, I'm like head. You just listened. Respectfully and say, okay, why don't you just admit it and say, by the way they got rid of that coach? Yeah. And then, so they bring in a coach who's done. I mean listen Spain holds the ball in his beautiful, and if they get moving, and if they can, if they find a way to convert the United States is going to be a long day for the United States, and they're gonna have to be clinical on those counterattacks because it's really hard to dispossess him at ton of numbers back there, an excellent recovering team. But they just don't have that last piece, but it's all from their complicit in that because they cut those players because those those players stood up on Spain, their struggles to score have come against South Africa, China and Germany, two of those teams I would say like definitely sit back. The US doesn't sit back the US I think plays a little bit more transitional if it is the US in Spain. Isn't that almost a good matchup for Spain? Because it'll just look different like the US is going to have seven players in the box, which is certainly what happened against China a little bit. What happening in South Africa? Some of what happened against Germany to the Spanish team. Did you see what happened though in the first, like ten minutes of this game, or is a bit open and Spain like all over Spain was all sunny? What they did every time they had a chance they broke had a beautiful pass a ball and a play around onto the goalkeeper comes out because we talked about, how goalkeeper was struggling and from China and the girl touches it, but then she touches it their second touch the first one beats keeper the second touches even further away from the goalie, and she could have hit half strike like that half chance off that I touch, but she didn't, and the promise pain is not technique is the promise they don't unleash the technique on anything. That's not what they deemed good enough opportunity. They need to go for it more. And if they start doing that I hope to God does not happening as the United States. They have the technique to execute. They just need to take their chances and they don't there's one player on Spain who has caught my attention. She's the number sixteen on. And I wonder if you as a centreback have have have caught this, there's can't miss her. She's got tattoos. So China hug had there like moments today against Spain right where they would get the ball create a counterattack almost got a chance and one of the best chances came right on the stroke of half-time, maybe like forty fourth forty fifth minute. They get a counter ball comes in cross to the far post Chinese player wide open there and lay on backpedaling just gets the extended flick header to it and nods it on. There was also a play in the first game against South Africa, when South Africa was up one nothing against Spain, South Africa lines up for a free kick, and I think it was actually the player that got sent off later of LA Qazi of South Africa who's takes the free kick Leone is in the wall. And she. Never closes her eyes and Qazi hits the ball across the wall. It is going towards the upper ninety and Laon steps out of the wall, and not, and sticks her head out another few inches up to not at passed, and it goes out for a corner kick, and I think that may have been destined for the back of the net then may have made that game to nothing South Africa. And that moment may have changed Spain's entire World Cup. So this is a player in the back for Spain that I think make some really critical interventions. Let's focus on the Chinese team because there was one of those kind of great visual moments at the end of this game, the Chinese managers, ya Kyu Kwan was overtaken with emotion. You can see he's crying as he's congratulating his players after the game. And sometimes you look at people crying, and you're like, oh, those are tears of sadness, or those tears of joy this looked like a manager who was relieved. I'm you could tell this guy was under some pressure to get this group this team out of the group. Interesting. How China is approached US World Cup something, nobody and dissipated. I listened to a ton of previews. I listen to some podcasts as well as read stuff in China. The one thing is you wouldn't expect after the second group game this team would have the most fouls in the tournament. Thirty one going into this last group stage game. I have never seen a team step on so many darn toes in a game. And I'm almost wondering if this is they know that they don't finish tons of their chances. So they're looking for every advantage that they can, and they're playing on that gray side of the law, whether or not the referee things is intentional or not how many players from Germany got their feet stopped on how many players today got their feet stepped on. That's how Mars on broker toe. And I remember playing a longtime and you knew what the Italians and the Brazilians they would always try slam on your toes, like whenever they check back. They purposely put their foot on your toes smashing in and it's common and men's soccer. Right. But it's becoming more common in women's soccer. That's just an example, the physicality of something that they're always doing. So this is a team that was looking for any type of advantage possible. Good on them in. It's. On the referees to catch it and it's up for the players that are on the ball to play quicker. But they are willing to do anything and they have fully rounded out there game as much as they can. They've had a lot of time to work together all players. But one play for the domestic league in China. So this is a team that is going to be very difficult to break down. They have lots of numbers back, the, you're gonna have to do something special to beat them and they will go through us. One of the four third place teams, interesting. You mentioned the physicality hold heavy loves Spanish coach said this just before the game. Gina, I Eileen me they recommend. Oh, what that means is China plays at the very edge the very border of the rules. And there's a practice in Latin America. And it's it's done in English as well. But the the is called Gandhi Sonangol's Abby throws which is like you come out as a manager before a game. And you condition the refs. So this is that he said this in his press conference. Hey China's physical. China's physical China's physical referees. Are you listening? China's physical. I wonder if other managers as they face Jonah may start to do that. And if that affects the referees, I always wondered to the ref doesn't work you're that style debate now. So I think playing at certain teams that's their stick and they keep fouling you five thousand times because the referee doesn't want to disrupt the rhythm in the flow of the game. It's their responsibility to keep the game moving to have players expressing themselves. But, you know, you're going to call the agree just fouls. But when it happens every two minutes you can't stop the game. And so you can only give out so many yellow cards, you can only give out, you know, your do you kick somebody out and you don't see referees doing that at least strong referees getting on players enough. And that's what's gonna take against that. I think he might have been. He definitely was doing that. I have never seen at work to the point where it actually deters a team from exhibiting a little bit more physicality than necessary. So group B is going to give us three teams into the round of sixteen Germany first place, Spain second-place China third, we still have group a to get to plus a conversation about one of the US players that made their World Cup debut on Sunday. Jessica mcdonald. But first, a quick break. Cates, so on yesterday's show. We discussed some controversial comments from Emma. Hayes, a former manager of yours with the Chicago red stars, she coached back in two thousand and ten so I was going through Wicca pedia miss. I tend to do and I was looking at the Chicago that at the two thousand ten Chicago red stars roster doodoo you guys were stacked, I let me go through this horrible. I know you the results were not great. But the roster is impressive Meghan routine. Oh for Migo Whitney angen who ended up winning a World Cup title in two thousand fifteen with the US the aforementioned Kosovar, Asllani Cristiani, one of your forwards. Karen Carney, who is right now with the English team competing in the two thousand nineteen World Cup. And at number fifteen a defender, Kate, Mark graph a little further down the numerical roster. We have number twenty two young forward named Jessica. Macdonald MacDonald, then you'll remember on Sunday at thirty one years old made her World Cup debut for the US national team. I love Kate. I love the Jessica McDonald's story because this is a story that has been kind of bubbling for a while. If you follow national women's soccer league American women's soccer, you know of this player, it's so cool to see her at the World Cup stage. I've only really been following Jessica, since maybe two thousand thirteen fourteen you played with her on two thousand and ten this was her first pro team Oshii like back, then Jessica sunshine. Mcdonagh. Do you know remember it was your middle name Vic name and not sunshine and definitely not. Do you remember, remember the titans or it's like sunshine? He's just like this, cool chill guy, grant hair. Oh, unbelievable hair. I'm jealous as she as Sandra. She is this person that just brings a lot of just. Levity at in not in sense of like making jokes not only sonnet way. But just because she's just so happy to be in the moment. She's not a drama, Queen doesn't bring any attention onto herself. She's a big cheerleader, but not in the cheesy way, like she was, like come on in its authentic. And then you start to get a little bit of her backstory. I mean this is a player that comes in works for but off went to junior college. Anson Dorrance recruiter. She goes to UNC for less two years, a beast in the box and a player that wants to dominate in the air and that's her skill. Her skill was not with her feet to be honest. She was incredibly fast brave every challenge, but she could not beat you unless you push you pass to run right. There wasn't much deception there. And then when you t- that was on the field. And then as you get to know her, she was living with the host family shield at the same time that I did you, you would get these glimpses of sadness and you'd be like, just what sunshine such, she's like, oh, that's right. That's right. And she could see her, like try to like turn around. And then one time she I was like, hey, what's your story, like we are both in the training room because she is had some injuries at the time. And she was telling the story she's like I just I and she was crying. Honestly, and she's like I just don't have the best upbringing in. I'm like I'm sorry to hear that. Do you wanna talk about it and it's out there? You can read it and I don't want to like, she, she talks about it. But, you know she didn't grow up in the best set. Being a mother that suffers through addiction, a father in and out of prison. A brother that she was very close to that played in the pros played for Dallas was oursel- and DC United Brandon, Brandon McDonald deal. And they're very close in basically extended family raised her, and she went to junior college because no one was coming after. And then she just kept making the most of every opportunity. So when we're looking at the United States, we're embarrassed by riches, like compared to all these other women playing in some of these countries, especially the non-european ones just McDonnell is probably our closest example of someone that has had to overcome more than any, any other US player has in terms of trying to get to a field trying to play for a good team trying to be exposed to the right. Coaches developed technique. She tears her patellar tendon under first game. She plays for us. And she goes down, and she's crying. And I was there and you just your heart broke because here's someone has done everything. Right. And has done everything right for as a bunch player in terms of not being attention seeker and just focusing on the starters and, and then she does it and you just that one just hits you hard. Right. And I three kids at the time, and she was always so great with my kids. So as a mom on the team, you always liked the people that spend time with your kids, because it distracts your kids a little bit. And you get a little bit of a break, and she was one of those sets reason why I gravitated towards her. So then fast forward a couple years, she bounces around pro teams. And then Paul Riley sees this character, and this person and this, this light that she is. And he brings her finally where she is now North Carolina courage. It was up in New York. Western New York flash in two thousand sixteen when she kind of makes that connection. Yeah. And then she was debating quitting or not. And she goes to him, should I should I quit soothing, I'll make national team. He's like, I don't think you'll ever make the national team chess. Moving forward. She just stays with it. She found a host family to live with that helps to care of her son, Jeremiah because in the span from when I knew her into now, she's had a child, and she's basically doing it on her own. And she is just become this more complete player like she's always fit. But now she knows where to run. And so she knows how to stretch defenses to open up lanes for other people. She is will sacrifice for the team and make input defenders under pressure. She causes havoc by the work. She does off the ball and then she converts in the air when she does. So this is a player that, if you wanna get behind somebody like this is someone that's happy to be there and she'll she will embrace it. And she'll show that appreciation by being the best character. There is out there and look not to say that every single of the twenty three players on his team earned their spot. Right. But McDonald really earned it you know what I mean? Like in, in a in a time when she wasn't on a lot of lists, she seemed to climb her way up. If you look at her career like she was on the youth national teams you sixteen u seventeen all the way through, you twenty three didn't get her first senior team, call up till two thousand sixteen and she would have been in these youth national teams in like, oh, six seven eight or nine. So that's like a decade of being age eligible for senior national team not getting a call up. She did bounce around the end of his cell, I started calling, and w sell games, and fourteen when the Houston dash for an expansion team. And she had bounced at that point from Seattle to Portland. She then actually ended up in Houston before going to the western New York flash. But it was that one year in Portland where I think she was kind of filling in for Alex Morgan while Morgan was injured in fourteen that you really started to, to score goals, and that was the time when my access to women's soccer was almost entirely and WFL. So I was like, oh, there's this player, Jessica MacDonald who's scoring loads the goals, and I'm watching national team players compete in the same league and not have the same success. And I'm thinking, like I McDonald's gotta be due for a call. Due for a call up due for a call up. But that wasn't end w w sell your six or seven that was w Sal years, one to three where I think we didn't really know the impact that the national women's soccer league would have on the actual national team pool. Because a lot of those pools are already very well established McDonald to me is like the proof is in the pudding. She's the pudding, she's the proof of concept of, like NWEA cell can have this huge role where they keep players alive to keep players playing. They keep that your hat still in the ring. And eventually, if you do get hot if you do find your Paul Riley. If you do find your right situation, you can become a member of the senior national team. And maybe even play in a World Cup as we look forward though. I wonder what do you think the role n w sell? We'll have in the player pool of the US women's senior national team as we progress in the league gross won't because US soccer subsidizes all the US women's national team player pool, Sal. In US soccer needs to utilize this league as a development league and it needs to become kind of like a feeder system to create a separate group of almost like a USA be team that helps feed the USA team, just kind of went through that because there are a number of players in that pool since two thousand sixteen that were selected because they could score goals after the Olympics, when they left in the finals earliest exit ever for US team in a major competition, the chance creations. If you looked at US created twenty three chances in two thousand sixteen but they were from bad angles, and so they, they really went out and looked for players that could create chances on their own and convert chances from bed angles, but also improve the angle. So the chance conversion rate was higher a higher probability of, of conversion just as one of those players and big moments in the air and Carli Lloyd was missing in the air Lindsay Horon was missing in the air in two thousand sixteen and one at another weapon they brought him Lynn Williams. For example. That's another player but unfortunately, about another WFL like kind of reticent and she plays with us. Their, their strike partners. And they're very good. Friends Lynn GIS is the fastest player in the NWF sell believe, but she needs thirty chances to convert to write her technique is lacking just needs to chances, in the air and she'll convert one so just gets the nod because also no one else on the team, the frontline can do what she can do in the air as well as defending set pieces. So that's critical but overall the NWEA sell it needs to become the breeding ground, and that will improve with better coaching better standards both on and off the field to player. Stay in it longer it, it's way to expand our competitive base of potentially US women's national team players. You mention her propensity for scoring big goals in big games. Jessica McDonald, though, she is the reigning N wwl championship game, then VP. She scored a couple of goals as her North Carolina, courage got revenge over the Portland thorns. It was the same two teams in the I called like, yeah let's game up. I was a big moment because they've been. Waiting for that game for all year. They've been waiting for that. That's a have or have not situation Portland has all the US women's national team players because a lot of people wanna play in Portland and Paul rally has built a team of underdogs and look at how many are on the national team or having an impact here at this World Cup -solutely, all right? Time to move onto the rest of Monday's games. We've got all the action out of group a to get to, but first US soccer stars like Tobin heath Carli, Lloyd, Mallory Pugh, and others are getting paid a lot of money by Hulu.

So let's get through group a quickly as anyone who has listened to this podcast will not be surprised by. We're running over. So group, a began with France and first place Norway, second-place Nigeria third, South Korea fourth entering the day. France, Nigeria was the first met a one of the matchups, Nigeria tie would get them through because remember four points is going to be enough to guaranteed get you through as a third place team, a loss for Nigeria would leave them in doubt a win and they'd obviously be through as well. France only needed a draw to clinch the top spot in the group. And boy, they got just more than a draw did the French they win one nothing. It took them eighty minutes, almost to score. And they scored on a controversial penalty awarded Wendy Renard converts after missing the first attempt I on the penalty Kate. Did you think that the penalty call was the right call the penalty call us the right and call? Yeah. Go. Go to use. Actively environments, use effectively on the second retake. The problem is the law is, is a name, right? So what happens I write? Right. Renard steps up. She pushes it wide. And does the very young Nigerian goalie? The eighteen year old is, is called for stepping off the line. Now, the rule is as long as you got one foot on the line. You're okay. And when they went back to the freeze frame, I know you're shaking your head. No. I'm yeah I'm going to root for the underdogs here. Man. I thought that was was close enough to that line that it wasn't sure that it was often if you're not sure that, that foot is really clearly off. I don't know that you can just you can call that. I didn't like that. I don't like this call it on. I got on Twitter. And I'm like this is ridiculous. And always when I got Christina, uncle from flowers really big deal Christina, was, I'm such a big deal. This picture, a screen grab of the I. F A B the rule connects. All right. Long had it been told not to call it rules that they are laws. And to please us out appropriately. So I'm using inappropriately, it's still does not say to me, the problem is, if you're gonna if you're gonna make the referee or the goalkeeper standing in line. You're ruining their ability to power step up. They always take that first step up and over eating goalie starting behind the line now. No, I have already behind the line so they can step up to the line and end jobs. This in this world columnist in this World Cup. So, but they've not stopping. So I thought she sent this picture to me to say. Oh, listen. We've also stopped the stutter step that forwards due to try to disrupt the goalkeeper, right? Try and get him to move early or to get off their line early. So you are again making it more difficult for a player to do their job by altering the laws of the game. And I do not like it. I agree that you need to limit people being goalkeepers to basically do it Brian excreted in ninety nine I mean, that was absolutely ridiculous. What she did. But the referee didn't have the guts to call it. But this is absurd on every level. Yes, the referee is right virus. Correct. But the law is silly, and it needs to be changed, and windy Renard celebration is starting to get some pull on Twitter because she celebrates afterwards after she missed the first one and own goal in the game before. And she goes and celebrates and I get that you're like, oh, thank God because this is the team that we always talk about choking. And this is what? He had just choked, by the way, she was a captain, and she got her captain armband remote by the Akra when deandre became head coach. So that tells you something that maybe didn't and the rule. And what was said was, she didn't want Docker, did not want put that much pressure on her. So just something to note that if you Francis gonna lose renards can be part of that loss, is what a lot of us are thinking because she she makes mistakes, and big moments green geogra- made four changes to our lineup. Our last lineup. France had already clinched a spot. Do you think that's what we saw on the underwhelming French performance? Or did you see some actual cause for concern for this French team? Now, I saw for changes in the lineup. I saw resting some veterans and to find out how good their death really is that death had a hard time against very well. Organized conservative Nigerian team that was focused on getting a point. This team had won change for Nigeria, I came in at midfield, and that meant that they going to sit back a little bit there, of course, going to try to unsettle France with using their aggressiveness, and it was so fun. Watching more data go against Magyari, and that was such a fun battle. But if they were it was kind of a catch twenty two if they went for in got exposed, France could convert, but they had to their would they were trying to go for a draw, and we're going to need some help? Right. We're going to four points and get in. So they decided to go for the draw. Yeah. And they almost they almost worked. Yeah, it almost worked. And I think really also the fact that they lose in the end by only the one goal may end up serving them. Yes. Well in that in the math. It ends up deciding which of those four third place teams will advance the final match then Norway, South Korea. Norway winds two to one over South Korea. Norway gets two penalty goals in the first half caroliina Graham Hansen scores the first she drew the second. It's airlifts then converts it, but maybe the bigger story than is Carolina. Graham Hanson, came off after that second penalty when we look at Norway, this is a team that has won this tournament in the past. Yes, you gotta go way back to nine hundred ninety five they played very well at moments throughout the group phase, Canvey make a run. Once we get to knock out play if this injury to Graham Hansen keeps her out of the lineup or is in. No, it's straight. It's that strange. Graham Hansen is a special player and isn't she? Only special player. No, no, that's super impressed. Angen. In a different way, in a different way, in terms of coming in two years, or coming in there, inverted wingers. I our into, but I would I think like real difference makers. Maybe it's only different. You're right. She sees the game differently than everybody else. I just don't think they have a ton of depth Joe and then add, someone that has that she rolls her ankle though. So if you're going to really rank, you're gonna be really stuff tomorrow, if too high ankle sprain, you're going to play through it, but it's going to be brutal. Hopefully it's not a high ankle sprain, but it's still going to be tender. And once you get moving it'll be okay, but once you stop it. That's when it hurts. So she will not be as affective or she will be feeling pain, every time she plays if she if she if she can go on. And that's a huge huge, that's probably the biggest one you don't you won't you don't want to go down on one injuring has been wonderful. Good. Alright hand. I ain't good has was better against France. Not so much against Nigeria, I thought played poorly, but Graham Hanson is good. She's solid real quick on South Korea. They do finally get a goal about twelve minutes from the end of their tournament. The number thirteen mingy scores. Great great assist. Yeah. It's a nice goal. You were kind of like, well where was that the, the whole tournament, I guess, that's my takeaway on the South Korea team, just a really disappointing toothless performance from a team. We should remind people made it out of the group phase in the last World Cup and did so with four points. So got multiple results on their way out of the group. And I thought this time just really let themselves down. Yeah, it wasn't impressive from them. They didn't have any bite going forward, and it was surprising when empty so young and she'll in there. So it was disappointing from them. I did not have them going through though. Right. Except I had Nigeria because things Nigeria with Thomas Donner be the former Swedish national team coach taking over bringing over some organization, I thought Nigeria be the most poised to make a run. And now they're gonna have to wait for others. A wonder if with South Korea, there was some element or shades of like Scotland mismanaged that, that approach. And no, I think they're game that they could have one was Nigeria. And I think they were mismanagement that was poor coached selection. In terms of the players, and how he was lining people up and how they were playing. Just not effective in the box at all. And they member they did have a goal called back for offside. I think. Yeah, because their head was a little bit off side. So they this the team that underwhelmed, and it wasn't good enough, and they were in between this and the Japan group, they don't have that. You can't have that margin of error. It's not like the United States group-group group baffler, you can get away with some stuff. All right. Thank so groups a and b are done and dusted, France. Norway Spain Germany China or all going through to the round of sixteen Nigeria's, maybe they're going to have to wait to see what else happens part of that. What else that will happen that will affect Nigeria's fate is what goes down on Tuesdays games as we put a bow on groups, c and d Kate. Let's start with group c the standings, currently are Italy. First, Brazil second, Australia third Jamaica forth. It'll be Jamaica. And australia. And then Italy and Brazil. Let's start with that. Jamaica, Australia match real quick on paper. It seems like a pretty obvious Australia. Low out to make a gut stretched really easily in their last game. I think Australia will be organized enough and more importantly, they're confident they're coming into this game. Sam Kerr had been attacked on social media, homophobic, rants on her. And she came up even though she did not touch the ball in two goals. She caused two goals. Part of that she was big reason why. So here's a team that's looking now has a mission to just basically say we they've been galvanizes group. They've been whether their style, whether people are coming after them with personal attacks. They're like, I think the way they started the tournament, also some criticism, losing to Italy. I think they're going to get burned. I mean, they are playing high risk Cairo awards. So they're going to get criticized. But, you know it good for them to turn that criticism into a motivational point the other game in in. This group is fascinating to me. I feel like I've said that one hundred times, but, but this group is really interesting. Italy one verse Brazil, too. And here's why this group is so interesting. You've got Italy Brazil, Australia. All right, there, and we do assume and we shouldn't but we do assume that Australia will beat you make it that would put them on six points. Italy already have six points. If Brazil beat Italy, we got a three way tie with six points. You're gonna have a team with six points plan as a third place team in the knockout round. What do you think happens in Italy, Brazil? Oh, gosh. Depends. If Brazil can keep it together how they bounce back after that. Disappointing lost Australia for me is out. Yup. And they're big deal. Is that huge? I mean I don't I don't think this is like blind loyalty. Is that even when you look at her stats in the first game and the same game not as good? What she's able to do to break up play? As unbelievable. And she also helps out the back line. Yes, she pulls them out of shape a little bit when she drops in. But she only drops in becomes, like a third centre-back when she realizes that her team is exposed because those two centreback Monica, and I can't remember the other one Kathleen, they were horrible against Australia. So losing her loses somebody that can help hunt the ball, but also allow you to transition quickly Christiane is going to have to come up big to lead this young group and as well as the Beena as a player that should have all the tools now to carry this team. She plays for north end wwl North Carolina courage under Paul Riley, she'll have the fitness, therefore to be able to withstand. But Italy's so well organized, and they get so many numbers behind the ball. I don't think that the fastest back line, but I think that they're smart enough to know when to drop in anticipation of the service, they read the ball. Well, that makes them very difficult to be Christiani on a cross. I don't think they can defend her no-one's defended her yet. Sara gama. I don't think you can defend her. So it's going to be interesting to see. It's really I think Italy wins. This game you do Italy. Would then win the group, which would shock all sorts of people me. I don't have either. I didn't know who would go through. Yeah. But you didn't have Italy win in the group. I'm no, I imagine Australia for that one. So who do you think ends up? Second, Brazil Australia, Australia, Australia would end up with six Brazil would have shot to go through with three if they do lose to Italy. They need a tie. Brazil gets a draw. Right. Well, then that, but then other tank. Tank it to Italy could purposely not start their starters. I mean just because they might be like you know what? We'll take first or second. They could do some bracket holiday. You know, it'd be like I don't wanna face that team. So. Right. I don't know the way things are shaping up. There's definitely going to be a strong side of the bracket and a weak side of the record. Really? I think so. Yeah, I think the US, France England side is going to end up being a strong out of the Braga and the other ones. We're gonna have a call in the Netherlands, can actually play. Well, yes. And you can just you and I were doing some bracket of our own. And we looked ahead to a potential quarter-final matchup between the Netherlands and Australia. That'd be so fun, so much fun. That'd be so we don't know if that have a back lines still and take over take the old. All right. Let's get through this group d real quick entering the final day of this group's matches England is in first place Japan. Second Argentina, third with one point Scotland fourth with no points, England and Argentina than our through. Who do you think will end up winning the group England, and Japan or thrill, sorry? England Japan of three yes. Yes. Going gonna win the group. Okay. They'll beat Japan in this game. It'll be Japan or they'll get Tigers Japan Japan, hopefully will figure out what their best starting lineup is. But they haven't shown any sign that they're going to she's been tinkering taco cooler this entire time leading up to the I just leading up to these games. I wonder what she's going to do? If this is an experience, if she's going to be like, okay, we've already one in the sense that we're getting the knockout round. So I'm gonna play a bunch of young players, and give them more experience because we are hosting the twenty twenty Olympics next year in Tokyo. So I I think England will tire win this game cure. See what Japan does. I think Scotland Argentina I would have said, Scotland hands down before this tournament started. But now after seeing how Argentina is playing they are very difficult to break down. And I don't think Scotland has the tools to break it down because we're and little and. I'm and Cuthbert they are playing very conservative, because I think they wanted to keep the score close. I think it's a conservative approach and they put all their eggs in this basket, do we see full flights in this? We gotta see full hold hope so I'll be right. I don't think Argentina has enough going forward. Right. That's my question. Right. Argentina's in this weird place. They have a point. Do they have enough? No score a goal because it got they're going to have to score to get through. So they're gonna have to go to hear HAMAs up top, but I honestly I don't think she's unless it's like driven ball inside a service like she's not going to beat you one on one. Right. She doesn't seem fast to me. She's tall. I thought she has a very big used to that team, which is like she can help hold it up. But teams back. I just wonder if they're going to be able to get into the opponent's box like I don't know. And then you have to ask the question. What's the difference between Argentina and Scotland? Right. Because we noticed there was a difference between Argentina and Japan and Argentina in England. But I think Scotland it's not at those levels. No. But they're they're right below them. Right. So, but I think their approach did not help us of innovation of their style. So there's there is a mathematical possibility where Argentina could get through. I've believe with two ties. There have served there. I know. I hope that doesn't happen. Look, you got twenty four teams in the tournament, and sixteen are getting to the knockout. So you're only send an eight home that would make everyone just sit back and defend. Yeah. It'd be so stupid. If a team that just sits back and gets two points goes through the World Cup. It's unlikely it's very unlikely like really mad basically. Okay. Well, don't be mad at me. Itchy lands Highland would have to tie. And so would Cameroon in New Zealand. But if those two things did happen and Argentina drew, there's a pathway for them in with just the tie, but fascinating in Scotland, of course, we know with the three points would put themselves into a very, very good spot, they would obviously jump Argentina and the group and then they'd have a really healthy goal differential very likely going up against these teams like Australia, Nigeria. And potentially whoever wins that Cameroon New Zealand game. And whoever's the winner of the Chila Thailand game, we'll also have a shot as well. That's a lot of math to be done a lot of soccer to be watched. But this is the time where the World Cup really, really gets good because finally were moving people on and we're sending people home. Speaking of sending people home. I think it's time we go home, not home home, but back to the perspective hotels that they keep us that, while, we're here in Bristol, Connecticut. She's K mart up. I'm Sebastian Salazar. Thanks for listening to this edition of ESPN AFC special coverage of the two thousand nine hundred nine women's World Cup.

Tune in each Thursday on I tunes for the latest episodes of the stands berry investor. Our sign up for the free show archive at investor our dot com. Here's your host, Dan ferris. Okay, everybody. Welcome to another episode of the stands berry investor. Our I'm your host, Dan ferris. I'm also the editor of extreme value. That's value. Investing service published by stands berry research. We got a great show. I'm going to get right to the rant because it's a special one today. Okay. This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while. And I thought after last week's rent this kind of was the perfect time to do it. Now last week, by the way, I'm happy to report that last week's rent was very well received which means a lot to me because it was kind of a personal plea. So if you haven't listened to last week's episode, I hope you'll download it and give it a listen. It was just I was just trying to implore beg plead investors to take control of their own portfolios. And to only partner with people they really trust brokers and advisors and things, and I got one heartfelt Email from a listener who said am I doing something wrong? I found an adviser. And then he goes on to describe this great relationship that he has this advisor in this Email, and of course, I can't give personal advice all limited to say as he described what sound like a very good personal relationship to me. And that's a way to make your investments really personal you partner up with people you trust. Okay. So that's definitely part of what I was describing just so, you know, all right? So this week I'm gonna I'm gonna continue a little bit based on the theme from last week. But I just want to give you some practical things to do. Actually some books to read. They're all pretty short. They're all extremely well written and you'll breeze through them. And the ideas are absolutely fantastic. Okay. And these are things that if you don't quite know what I was getting at last week and don't quite understand how how to make investing really personal how to take control of it. I think these books in the order that I'm giving them to you. It's like it's almost practically a step by step for doing that, practically speaking. You may have to read between lines a little bit. But it's it's really all there. And I think it's pretty plain to see the first one. Now, the first book I'm gonna recommend today is not just the first book, I'm gonna recommend today. Okay. It is absolutely. The first book any investor should read. Once they decide I got some capital. I want to I want to invest it. Somehow I wanna get in the stock market. I wanna buy bonds owned by real estate, whatever it is. This is absolutely. The first book any investors should read if you're if you're fifteen or or ninety five or anywhere in between. This is your first stop. It is called the elements of investing by Burton Malki, he'll and Charles Ellis and a couple of podcast ago. I said two or three podcast ago. I think it was episode ninety one with James Grant, I said that saving saving money as the master skill for investors. Right. And that's what this book starts with. And it just treats. And it says things about saving that. I didn't say really wise wise things. So I highly recommend it. And it gives you some practical tips on saving in a small way and saving in a big way. And then it just has a few. It's very short book because I am two hundred pages, and it's small pages, and and very well written. These guys have written plenty of books in their time both of them and both have written other excellent books that are mentioned actually right on the cover here. So that after saving they talk about indexing, diversifying, avoiding blunders. Remember one? We talked about negative advice. What not to do? They have a chapter on that in here. Then there's a chapter and keeping it simple. And they've got some other stuff in the end about taxes and so forth. Simple things that everybody should know highly recommend this the elements of investing by Malki Ellen Ellis. You wanna make you want to really take charge of your investments? Read every word of this. Take it to heart practice it. Okay. Numero uno. That's the one right? The second. One is a book that I'll probably mention a million times because I'm a value investor. Okay. But. Value are not no matter what you are. You. I think you need to read chapters eight and twenty of the intelligent investor by Benjamin Graham, again, the guy writes in a slightly older style than what then the other book, I just mentioned elements of investing, but he's really good. And and I actually have a little little alert on my computer, and it comes up on my phone to once a month to read chapter twenty of this book, it's called margin of safety as the central concept of investment, and it will teach you a lot and chapter eight will teach you how to deal with the fluctuations in the stock market. Gee, I'd like to know that wouldn't you you better know it before you buy one single share of anything so chapters eight and twenty of the intelligent investor. Warren Buffett says by far the best book on investing ever written. I mean, that's a pretty good recommendation from a guy who's made tens of billions of dollars investing. So we got the elements of investing and the intelligent investor and all these books are written by investment geniuses. Okay. All of them Malki. Oh S. Benjamin Graham, all these people spent their entire careers in the investment industry. The next one is around here somewhere. Heritage is it's the most important thing by Howard marks. And the funny thing about the title is that as Marx tells you in the in the front of book, he came up with the title because he would find himself sitting down with investors with his clients and potential clients, and he'd say the most important thing is this the most important thing is that the most important thing is the and it was a different most important thing every time. And so there are eighteen most important things in the book. And and and it just kind of shows you that investing is complicated. There's a lot to think about and this guy more than anyone else even more than Warren Buffett on these particular topics makes them very very simple and very very easy to understand. And all of these things you will want to go back. These are your reference sources for these topics. Okay. So the most important thing by Howard marks. He's got three chapters on risk in their. Gee, that's a big hint. Isn't it? You should know. Something about risk. He's got chapter on cycles. He's got a chapter on second level thinking, right? I level thinking is when you say. You know, she the the economy's bad and stocks are going down. And I shouldn't buy anything second level thinking says. Stock prices are low because thing everybody's kind of sour on the economy, but they're getting pretty cheap. And I found a few good companies that I think are really great buys right now. That's second level thinking versus that first level things. When most people do that, knee jerk reaction is your first level. All kinds of other great topics in there and they're essential. You can't do. I would say that all of the things I'm having you read here every chapter in elements of investing chapters eight and twenty of the intelligent investor every chapter in the most important thing. And again, it's not even it's maybe a couple hundred pages. Every single chapter is absolutely essential can't live without it. Now. The next book I'm going to recommend the fourth one. And I'm and I'm only gonna recommend five altogether. Is it's it's one of the one of the classic investment works. It's by Peter Lynch. It's called one up on Wall Street. It contains one of my favorite quotes ever, which I will read to you right now. He says then again, this is right at the end of chapter one in the book for maybe a chapter two looks like chapter one. Anyway, he says then again, maybe you shouldn't have anything to do with the stock market ever. That's an issue worth discussing in some detail. And here's the good part because the stock market demands conviction as surely as it victimizes, the unconvinced I love that demands conviction. And surely as it victimizes, the unconvinced how many times have you sold at the bottom. How many times have has your conviction wavered and you've made a bad exit or even a decent exit? And then the stock turns around and flies up, and and you know, sores without you onboard. I've done it myself too many times, and there's lots of other really good stuff. My my my copy of this thing has several of those good quotes just sort of underlying and underlined and underlined to the point where the pens like almost going through the page. Again, just essential kind of reading. And so these are essential reading. But they're also there's another point here, which is that all of these people are investment wizards their investment geniuses, and you should read if you really want to take control of your investments, you should make these people you're partners. You should read all of Warren Buffett's, shareholder letters write on berkshire-hathaway dot com. You should read books like the ones that I'm recommending here. And there's one more hour recommend. I looked on Amazon and there's like seven copies left. I think if you guys all by those seven they'll they'll get more because I it's not out of print, and it's called the money masters by John train. Now, there's one called the new money masters, which is harder to get. And I don't I'm not recommending that when but if you want to get that one too great. But I definitely think the money masters is is a good source for just learning about some great investors that you may not have heard of now there are people in here like Warren Buffett Benjamin Graham, there's chapters on each of them. But there's also chapters on people like Paul Cabot, Philip Fisher. Stanley Kroll T. Rowe price. John Templeton, Larry Tisch, Robert Wilson, you never heard any, you know, maybe Templeton or something or T Rowe price. But or fill Fisher, even but Cabot Wilson crow probably never heard of those guys, and they're definitely worth. Sort of learning something about and the point of that is. Definitely learn something, you know, as much as you can from great investors, and I have a bunch of books around here that are basically, you know. The same thing. There's like a chapter each chapter is devoted to a great investor. But I sort of thought this was the best one to to recommend on this very short list of books designed to help you take control of your investments. There's another thing. I wanted to talk about okay? This book elements of investing is really really basic stuff. And that's that's not by accident. Okay. This is not I told you this before when I talked about saving as the master skill. I learned something by studying music. I studied music in college. I was a music performance major. That's what my degree was in. I've played classical guitar. I still play. And. I was born and raised in Baltimore studied guitar at in university in the suburbs of Baltimore with a guy named mon- or I'm sorry guy named Michael decker who was the protege of of a guy at Peabody Peabody is in Baltimore, the Peabody conservatory, one of the great music schools on the planet earth, and it Peabody when my teacher Michael was there was a guy named Manuel bar Waco, one of the greatest one of a handful of the greatest guitarist ever to play the instrument period. Full stop and just a really nice guy. You know, I went to several of his masterclasses, right? Where where you have, you know, he'll be on stage with a student and there'd be an audience, you know, and he'll give a class for for the student that we can all watch. And I went to several of those went to several his performances and one time I drove up to Philly from Baltimore. And I was standing out front of the venue and Manuel pulls up and gets out of his car and says, hey, how you doing? He recognized me from going all before. Forces and masterclasses says, you know if. Do you have a ticket yet? And I said, no, I was going to go in and get one in a minute. He says, well if they run out by the time, you get there. Get me a message, and I'll make sure you get in just really really good down to earth guy and musical genius. When it gets our. And he taught me something. Just by watching him in these classes, he kept giving the same advice over and over and over, and it wasn't some complicated. Hard to figure out thing. It was he would ask every player on every piece. He said did use a metronome. Did you play this with the metronome? Did you metronome this every single time? And then they'd say sheepishly. No, I did. And he's at you have to have to use a metronome van. Well, has this very insistent. Way of telling you have to do it. You have to do it. And and he's right. And I, you know, I play some pretty advanced stuff these days myself, and and you just you have to use a metronome and every piece because because you just do it's one of the basic things, you know, you have to master the rhythm. It has to be extremely solid, you know, for the piece to really sound great. And it occurred to me that there's really no advanced class. There's an advanced class in the technique of, you know, contorted your fingers on a given instrument on the guitar or violin or whatever your instrument is there's an advance there's an advanced class for the technique. But for the music, not really there's not really an advanced class, you're mastering the basics over and over and over and over with every single piece you play you revisit the basics. I gotta get the rhythm. Right. I gotta get the tempo. Right. Not too fast. Not too slow. Gotta push it. Here got to pull it back there. Every single piece every single investment you make the master skill of saving will help you. And and the negative advice. You get from reading things like chapter twenty of the intelligent investor or the chapter in the elements of investing or the work. Of the till f for that matter. The negative advice helps you an every single investment. The skill of saving helps you in every single investment. You're just revisiting the basics every time. There is no necessity of, you know, taking the advanced class, which in-investing would probably be like, you know, learning all the option Greeks or something like that. And we don't even know you to go in with to what that means. If you don't know what it means because you'll never need to learn it in your life, just revisit the basics start with these five books, and maybe I'll try to list them on the on the website. Once we get the podcast up here. But that's that's my rant for today. If you wanna take what I said last week if last week charged you up, and the feedback that we got suggests that it really charged a lot of people up and got him excited about taking control. I would say. Take a breather. Don't buy or sell anything read these five books. Read every word of them, read everywhere. Word them three times. I had a teacher in college. Who said you gotta read everything three times. Then I read a book by guy named Mortimer Adler philosopher, and he said, you know, a great book should be read three times. You know, once you get the sweep of it. The second time you dig in and get the nitty gritty and underline things and figure out things. You don't understand the third time you tie it. All together these books deserved three readings a piece at least. And even after that. You will go back and refer to them. They will become sources of timeless wisdom for you. You know, you're in fact, like your first five sources of that. And and then you know, there's lots of other good book street. But by all means you want to take charge start with these five that's the ramp. Let's talk about what's new now. Okay, everybody. Here's what's new. First thing I'm gonna talk about is little report that I read about on pile on line, pension and investments online is the website. And they put out a little report. Maybe a week or two ago. And it says the headline is by. A research from an alternative investment consultant research firm called cliff water is what this report is based on on pension and investments, and it says cliff water says the US date pension fund returns badly trail, the aggregate assumed rate of return. That's a lot of gobbledygook. What it means is this. The US state state pension funds throughout the US in the aggregate all together. Assumed that you have to assume a return because you're a pension is people contribute to the pension. And you know, one day they need to take out of the pension and live off of it. Right. So you have to kind of estimate. You know, what you're going to be able to give them in twenty years when they retire. So the, you know the pension fund invests the assets, and they estimate an annualized rate of return that they'll be able to get over a certain period. Now, the the insight here that I shares that pension funds are kind of notoriously bad at a couple of things. One of them is is estimating future returns. And another one is like that. You know, they're always calling the top of whatever investment is like the big fad. It's it's horrible actually. But. Cliff water found that the weighted average return that they estimated back in June of two thousand through June of twenty eighteen was seven point seven five percent. That's what they thought they were gonna make over that period of time. What they actually made was five point eight seven percent doesn't sound like a lot. But it is over a long period of time. You know, it's thousands and thousands of dollars difference to a pensioner. And so that, you know, it's rather typical. And if you have a pension, you kind of want to know what they're assuming you know, if it's the year two thousand or the year two thousand seven or I would say right now two thousand nineteen well if they've got a lot of money in stocks. They're going to underperform whatever they're telling you they're going to make they really are. And this and the report went on to say this almost two percentage point shortfall contributed greatly to a decline in pension funding ratios from close to one hundred percent in two thousand seventy three percent as of June thirtieth two thousand eighteen according to the cliff water report what that means is they were one hundred percent funded. They assumed that there were one hundred percent funded talk in two thousand well now, they're only seventy three percent funded. So they've got twenty seven you know, if they had to pay everybody out today. Everybody would get twenty seven percent less than they thought something like that. So yeah. Careful be careful on the pension funds. Okay. All right. Another thing in the news Uber. Uber's kind of an interesting animal. Uber says it's going to see a three point one billion dollar deal to buy Katerine this week. So it's three billion. This is Kareem networks. Dubai based rival company that does the same thing as burger, you know, these sharing things so. Three point one billion in cash and shares. And with one point actually one point four billion in cash one point seven billion in convertible notes, and the notes will convert into Uber shares at a price equal to fifty five dollars. A share Uber is expected to publicly file for an IPO in April and this could value. I thought the the value was was lower than that. Maybe we should I should have checked in that. But the point is that it values the company as much as a hundred and twenty billion. And you know, they lose money. It's this giant thing. That's kind of a great idea use it all the time. But it, but it loses money and has a giant valuation. That's kind of a sign of the top. It's a typical sign of the times. And I got another sign of the times earlier this week in this in the digest. Brian beach of stands very published a piece, and he discussed a company called we work, and you know, we work, right? They they basically by office buildings or they lease office buildings. And then they cut them up in and lease smaller pieces of them at higher rates for the smaller piece, and they collect the difference. And they have a massive valuation of like forty seven billion dollars. Now, there's another company that's been doing this since like, the nineteen eighty s called WG has a valuation of like two billion dollars and has like thousands of properties versus like hundreds for we work, and it's just like another sign, and we work is this. It's insane. Okay. The valuations and saying I think the CEO is off his rocker in the wall in the New York Times, I'm sorry in early twenty eight and he says to assess we work by conventional metrics to miss the point. We work is really a real estate company. It's a state of consciousness he said that in public it'd print with a straight face. Okay. And it is just a real estate company, but they they they try to sell themselves as tech company. Right. So they. You know, they have these. Industrial. They they have kind of an industrial style in all their buildings and they. You know, they have free beer, apparently, not kidding, free beer. And then they have all these other ventures that they're starting we live, which is a residential version of we work still just real estate, right, then European style hotel concept with shared bathrooms called we sleep and something called we Bank. We have no details about that. We sale is Caribbean boat charters, and we grow which is like a computer coding academy for a for profit computer coding academy for preschool children like three year olds and up promising a curriculum that emphasizes socializing an entrepreneurship for three year olds on up. And and there's other weird stuff. So that so it's a weird company. The valuation is way too high. Part of the value problem with the valuation is that Masayoshi sun from SoftBank has jacked up evaluation. Just by putting lots of money into it. Right. So he he it's a private company. So he invested at one valuation, then he put a whole bunch more into it assigning it still higher valuation. So it's the valuation that SoftBank is is recording their stake in which evaluation. We're all going off of is kind of a made up thing. It's pure Bs. And and beyond that, of course, when you get something like we work, then you also get shenanigans. Right. So the CEO we work Adam knew knowing Mon is he's personally buying buildings and selling them to the company an obvious conflict of interest. Right. I mean, if we work is a real estate company, I know what they're doing and they're not overpaying etcetera etcetera etcetera. Then why shouldn't they just buy them? Why do they have to buy them from new on? Well, I guess he wants to make money selling them to his own company. And when the board, you know, protested this he responded by creating a super voting class of shares and giving himself enough votes to kind of override the boards objections. And the accounting is a little odd to say, the least they take non gap accounting to a new level. They use something called community adjusted EBA that's earnings before interest taxes depreciation amortization kind of a standard cash flow metric community adjusted Eva to deduct s- employee salaries marketing costs for fixing up the buildings pretty much everything except the least cost for leasing the buildings. I mean, Brian beach sent me an Email about some of this. He said I've seen a lot of funny non gap stuff but backing out the employee salaries like that's not a gentleman expense. Wow. He says, and wow, I say, wow, you should say. Bizarre worlds stuff. Just bizarre. That's what happens at the end of the cycle stuff. Like that stuff. Like, you know. Uber. Taken out a probably not none unprofitable competitor for three billion bucks. And we work being valued at forty seven and doing all this shenanigan crazy stuff. All right. Just a couple more things. The Elon Musk circus continues an SEC judge. I'm sorry SEC urges a judge to act accusing musk of kind of muddying up, the contempt of court case against him. He tweeted eight tesla production forecast for the year and February corrected himself within a few hours. That was like the five hundred thousand four hundred thousand escapade, I think and prompting the SEC to ask that he beheld in contempt of court. And of course, we I told you Whitney Tilson who who is now made a deal stance. Very. He's saying this is it and the stock is gonna finish under a hundred bucks this year still well over one hundred I think it's still well over two hundred. And the thing has just been. It's just levitated. I mean, there's no reason why this brand new company should be valued roughly the same as like GM GM actually makes money, and it sells a bunch of cars million cars all over the world and not millions. But it sells a lot of cars all over the world, and it has the same valuation, roughly as tesla which lose lights money on fire has a crazy CEO. An apparently, according to all the tests bears, just playing all kinds of games to report things in the best possible light, and they come out with a new model, and then you kind of look closer. And it's not really that model. It's kind of a previous model jazzed up and look like the do it. This is the kind of stuff that you see this is, you know, maybe I'm guilty of confirmation bias. But that's what you see at the top of long bull markets. So be careful out there with this stuff be careful with these giant IPO's like an Uber or a we work or something if they IPO be very careful. All right. It's time for our interview today, and we have Tom Carroll. One of the newest folks here at stands berry, and Tom has the impressive resume, folks. Tom's been a regular on networks like CNBC and FOX business over the past two decades. His work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg the financial times Kipling or CBS USA today. Just name a few here in a masters degree from the department of health care finance at Johns Hopkins, Bloomberg school of public health. Tom spent seventeen years as an analyst and managing director for Legg Mason and St. full financial at that time fortune ranked him as the number one health care analyst in America. He received the all star analysts award for excellence and stock picking twice for years ago. Tom took a risk. He became an angel investor in what is now a major. Player in the medical cannabis space, and that experience changed his life. So today, he's wave goodbye to his old job on Wall Street. He wants to take his twenty years of experience in health care where he won award after award for finding some of the most profitable investments and begin a new legacy finding the same kind of opportunities and cannabis stocks. Now, the kind of opportunities Tom uncovers are not like the cannabis investment, you'll likely hear about in mainstream media a lot of that stuff is garbage, by the way, these are opportunities that Tom has personally vetted in handpicked because he thinks their position to soar hundreds of thousands of percent as cannabis legislation and legalisation continues to sweep across the globe, Tom Carroll. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much. Glad to be here. All around. Yeah. I mean after that introduction, your I'd be glad to be here to the end of the day. I'm like I said I'm hundred and knucklehead he put it all together. It looks good. All right. Well, we don't think you're not going to. So before we get into all this cannabis stuff. I mean, it seemed like you were dedicated to hell finance just from school days from the time of your masters studies. So you decided healthcare was going to be big, and you are going to get involved in finance way back. Then I did I did I grew up in a healthcare family. And I can remember my mother very clearly saying you need to get into health care. And I don't mean as a doctor. I mean on the money side of things and she was spot on without advice. And she reminds me of it to this day. Wow. So this is like, you know, this is the opposite of what everybody else report everybody else says, you know, when my mother tells me to do something it's the top of the market. But, but you have the op your mother, actually steered you, right? Yeah. And I guess at that point time I'd had enough experiences with my parents that I knew they they kind of knew what they're talking about. I try to explain that to my kids. To. But they're not there yet. Maybe they'll they'll get there you keep keep pounding them. So, you know, just tell us a little bit about, you know, your time before stands berry, just maybe an experience or two that kind of helped you get where you are today. So experience you're to that helped me get to where I m or just your impression your impression of the corporate world. And you know, just just you know, you're how you're thinking developed may be before you got into all this cannabis stuff. Sure. So like like, we just mentioned I knew I wanted to be in health care. I knew I wanted to be on the on the dollars side of things it felt like a recession proof business to me as it has proven to be, and it it's it it's something that was only going to get bigger and was complicated and was full of emotion. And as I mentioned, and I think it's worth mentioning again, it's full of money and. Thank you put all that stuff together. And it creates an environment or an ecosystem that is very well suited to investment. And I worked in a number of places kind of in and around the healthcare world prior to getting into the Wall Street job. I had and. Those experiences in really being part of it. You know, sitting in the basement of a of a hospital doing a Medicare cost report or being in the physician's office who's trying to, you know, run his small business, and we're trying to do as books for them, or, you know, working on reserve calculations for a managed care company. I'm all of that stuff turned out to be a really really great base of knowledge as I somewhat accidentally fell into my Wall Street job. And again, once I once I got into that role as an analyst with initially with leg Mason. We were we were bought by St. phone number of years later, and I continue my career there. But all of those experiences, really laid a great groundwork for stepping in and analyzing companies from. From a from a higher level, and then translating that into into stock picks, and I ended up being there, you know, about eighteen years. So I guess it worked out yet. You that is some nitty gritty stuff you described before, you know, before getting into sort of the Wall Street career yet. And I I think the nitty gritty stuff is really what makes investing in healthcare. So so great because it's hard right people. Don't get it. I've had a number of institutional investors say look we just haven't been involved in healthcare because we don't get it. We don't get you know, what the big risks are. And what the governmental focus could be in does that create winners or losers? And in my view, it's great to understand that to some degree. I don't know that I'll ever fully understand it in health care. I don't know if anybody will. But you know, to dive into that and really create created a differentiated view that can turn into. To what have been some really decent investment opportunities over the years. Yeah. And you know, so how does it guy? Like you. You know, how did how did you navigate for example, you know, ObamaCare, and that changed a lot of things. I know it changed my life. I'm paying a lot of money for healthcare. These days of what you know. What did that look like to a guy with your experience and knowledge? Yes. So great great question. I mean into kind of the end of two thousand and seven and early two thousand eight there that's really when the chatter began that ultimately led to the health care reform debate in the United States that ultimately led to the signing of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, and investors didn't know what to make of it. You know, it was like this this brand new sweeping push for legislation. That was also going to be quite sweeping in nature. And it the first question is while there's going to be winners and losers. So who are they going to be and no one really had a good idea? So it was it was a lot of kind of sitting back and working on various scenarios. You know, if this happens, then, you know, the the managed care companies are going to be better if this happens in the hospitals are going to be set, you know, and and on and on. So it was a it was a lot of kind of keeping track almost on a daily basis, especially as we got towards the implementation of the ACA in twenty fourteen but it was a it was a constant battle. And and quite frankly, I think it was it was a a world of trading back, then so we were doing a number of trading calls, which is kind of opposite of my investment process longer term. But the overall environment really required that at the time. So you know, we may be by rated on one thing at one time and and change our minds, you know, three or four. Months later as opposed to you know, three or four years later, which was really the goal of my of my investment opinions on stock. So it it was it was a crazy period of time. I had I had investors. Look at me and say, why don't I short all of these things. Right. Two zero. You know, question, Mark. And not a not a rhetorical question. You know, when I was having to come up with discussions around things like that. So it was it wasn't an easy time. But I'll tell you it was it was a lot of fun. And there was a lot of demand for opinion and my time as well as others in the market at the at the time. So I was quite busy. So as good job security as well. So I'm actually looking forward to twenty twenty. I think healthcare is going to be another front burner issue as we head into the next presidential election, and that's gonna create probably some similar tidal waves out there in the world, you think just generally are there specific of? Specific issues that you think are going to be more important. You know in two thousand twenty or you're just you're just in general counting on it being an overall factor. I mean healthcare legislation and the push as a as a big healthcare. You know, either from, you know, get everybody covered or make it more of a free market system. I mean that that tends to come around every other presidential election. If you look at through the history of different elections in the different healthcare top hits at ten ten to skip an administration, and so this one it's it's gearing up. I think again to be another, you know, primary issue for the election. And you're already hearing about it with calls for Medicare for all or Medicare for America. There's a there's a number of different proposals that are out there. So right now, it's really hard to say who are going to be you know, winners or losers. It's also hard to say what ultimately the final issue is going to be. I don't believe a Medicare for all will work in the United States. Dates certainly not at this point in time. But it sounds like the push towards some type of I don't wanna say single payer system. But some type of universal coverage system pay a private public partnership program is probably going to be beat be crafted an and put out there to be voted on. So that's that's again will absolutely have ripples across the entire healthcare ecosystem, which as you know, is approaching twenty percent of the total economy. Wow. Yes. So I'm going to indulge. I have these pet peeve questions about every industry, and I've gotten to indulge my banker questions the last few weeks, but my my pet peeve in in healthcare is just you know, from my own perspective as a consumer it feels wrong to me to have. I don't even know how many at this point. I've seen estimates of between six. Six and and sixteen or so administrative people involved in virtually every transaction between me, and my doctor, and I feel like well, if we're going to have a system like that where everybody's got this insurance. You know, most people do now, especially, of course, the cost is going to be high. Does that my right and my way off Mark here? I think that's a an easy an easy argument to point at. But at the end of the day, the administrative part of the system is actually very very small. I mean, the primary driver of US health care costs are the price that we pay for products and services at the hospital and the price we pay for products and services at the doctor's office, those two things encompass over fifty percent of the total medical spend that's out there today. And and again, this is you have your belief. This is my belief if doctors and hospitals were allowed to administrate on their own healthcare would be a lot more costly than it. Even is today, maybe on a cynic. But but but I truly I truly believe that that would be the case. So. So I think a lot of what what we call administrators and middlemen. I'm either there again, not all of them. But they're they're trying to create a system of checks and balances in the system that our country has decided that's the way we want to do it. Right. Other countries have decided that the checks and balances are going to be done at a single payer level. You know, so for example, in in the UK, there's a there's a an agency called nice, and I see the National Institute of comparative effectiveness, and this is the group within the NHS that basically says, you know, yes, you're gonna we'll pay for that expensive drug treatment, or no we're not gonna pay for it. And if you want it you're going to have to pay on your own, right? Those decisions aren't really made in the United States right now, or they're made kind of under the radar screen by you know, the the administrators that you refer to and the various. Checks and balances that are out there. Right. And there as you mentioned there across all different parts of the system their Medicare or Medicaid there at commercial insurance companies. They're you know, within hospitals that are taking medical risk there within big physician groups that are taking medical risk and so on and so forth. So I guess that's a long winded answer to your to your question. But while the administration can seem annoying, and it certainly if you look at it in the aggregate, it's big dollars. But at the end of the day, it's a it's it's really a very very small component of the overall spending in the United States. I see so. And specifically I was addressing the fact that you know, I pay a lot for insurance just for my wife, and I and it seems to me like the it's maybe I'm hung up on the word insurance. Because insurance to me doesn't mean this doesn't mean that. Yeah. So I mean that that's where I thought. Well, if they're calling this insurance, but it involved in every single transaction. That's not really insurance. And of course, that's going to Jack the cost up at you're saying, no, not really. Yeah. It it. It's. Actually, the cost of like paying physicians and buying medical equipment and doing the stuff that they do. Yeah. Yeah. Fact, my my grad school advisor, Dr Gerry Anderson at at Hopkins, he just published a study he did about fifteen years ago and the title of it is called. It's the prices stupid and the new the new study is called. It's still the prices stupid. And he basically looks at the price per unit of thing. Right. The price per unit of service or product in the United States and compares it to OAC nations out there, and what he found I guess eighteen years ago now, and what he found just a few months ago is that in the United States the price per unit of service is anywhere between three and ten times. What it is in other places, you know, adjusted for oh, all kinds of things. And so I I again, take administrative out of it. You still? Have all of that. In fact, I would argue that all of that would even be higher without some of the Jackson balances that are out there. Again, there's always, you know, the example two point to well, you know, this pharmacy benefit managers, not given rebates back to this particular organization. You know, sure, there's there's always that stuff out there. You know, the drug pricing stuff that's out there in the media right now, again, very very easy to point at that stuff and say, this is what's wrong. But again, even even the even the drug pricing stuff. I mean, if we were to cut drug prices across the board in half, it would influence about seven percent of total medical spending. You know meds are only about fifteen percent of the total medical dollar. But it's a great place to start because everybody has has a good sense of what that is. And what that means. Everybody has a good sense of, you know, medication and how they get them, and you pay your co payment her or whatever, and you take your meds and all. Hey, I I got better. Right. So we have a good tangible understanding, so we're going to fight the fight for healthcare costs and make them better. I think in the sense of either flat or lower, you know, pointing the finger at a drug causes a perfect place to start I say speaking of drugs. So. Do it. But it just worked. Yeah. Speaking drugs. I I have to say I've been doing this twenty one years, and if you told me like even four or five years ago, stands berry research will soon offer a product called, you know, the cannabis capitalist. I would have said, no, you know, totally devoted to investing in and companies that I assume either grow or produce marijuana based products. I you know, I just never would have believed at and that is really that is your primary right now at your sole focus it stands berry, a not. That's correct. That is absolutely correct. It's a it's it's amazing. It's it's a it's a place that you know, you've had a there's been a missing component there. And it's a I think it's going to be a absolutely enormous industry in the next five years. Okay. So you and I talked about this a little previously. But but I wonder if you could just flesh it out a little bit for us. Of course, marijuana's still it's like a schedule one drug. It's still illegal at the federal level. Yup. And yet, and yet we have I live in the state of Washington. There are marijuana dispensaries all over the place with every kind of product, you can imagine, you know, flower, vapes and shatter and all this weird's and edibles and all this stuff drinks. So. You know, every now, and then somebody says, well, you know, the the feds are going to come down there. They're they're getting ready to come down on some of these people. But it never seems to quite happen. What is your view on this this, you know, tension between state and federal in the United States. Yeah. So. I guess if we go back, you know, the the Obama administration, basically, set the tone and said, look we at the federal level. We know it still it's still legal it still a schedule one drug equivalent to heroin, and you know, but that being said, we are a nation of states, and we are going to let states kind of experiment, and and do their own thing. You know, wall kind of keeping a an active I on things to make sure stuff doesn't get out of hand. Again. That's kind of my interpretation of things and the world under that kind of environment. Did very well. You know, you seen obviously as you just mentioned Washington state, Oregon, Colorado, California, the state of Maryland now where I live, you know, begin to create and think about laws and. Eventually enact them and implement, you know, systems and programs and companies dispensaries to start to start working on it that environment somewhat changed a bit when Trump took over and put attorney Jeff Sessions attorney general Jeff Sessions in place who is notoriously anti cannabis. And so there was a, you know, a fear of uncertain wave of uncertainty that kind of went across the country, and it almost felt like he had to have a public face. But kind of behind the scenes he was saying. Yeah. While we're really not gonna do much. But I don't think anybody really believed him. Anyway, sessions is gone now in his his successor. William bar is known to be much more open and much more, you know, allowing states to kind of continue the regime that they had under the Obama admitted. Station. So I think the the conflict between. The way cannabis's scheduled at the federal level, and what states are doing now. I mean, it it still exists, but it's kind of existing again in a in a in a less in in a less scary way than than it did even just over the last couple of years, I say, so I'm I'm inferring from all this that. And obviously, you're very bullish stance on some of these investments that that you think maybe we'll see more states that go recreational, and maybe this thing will just keep an an and I noticed in the intro that I read you know, that we talked about it's sweeping across the globe. So beyond the United States. Even you know. So that's your view that even just around the world. This is this is in motion. The momentum is forward. It's not going backward. Do I have that? Right. Yep. You absolutely have that. Right. I think one of the great ways described kind of the globe. And looking across the world is looking at Germany, Germany is a essentially a medicinal country for cannabis and the national health system in Germany. It's it's actually a reimbursable benefit. So you can go to your doctor, and if your doctor decides that having having a, you know, a a ten percent THC. Comp whatever it is whether it's a cigarette or a an edible if that's going to potentially help your ailment. You can go to the pharmacy and get it and the government will pay for it. You know, almost like you going here in the United States and having your insurance company pay for your meds at the pharmacy. So I I think that's a just a great data point out there from a global perspective. But you know, you're seeing similar stuff and obviously in the Netherlands Australia. Poland South America, Uruguay, an a number a number of places. So yeah, it's not not not just a a US states thing. Fact, I would argue the states is kind of the the United States is is behind the curve, relative to all those other places, you know, but, but but the, but the traction is there, in fact, the one thing I'm just thinking about now that since you mentioned kind of the conflict between federal government in the state. I think there's also conflict within the federal government self, and there's kind of two there's two things actually I'd point to that happened last year that I think are very interesting. We had the FDA approve a drug called EPA dialects EPA dialects is a very effective treatment for two rare forms of epilepsy. Epa dialects is a cannabis derived medication. Now, why is that important will the FDA is a federal agency that's approving a drug derived from cannabis right? But the federal govern also says that cannabis is illegal. It's schedule one or Khattak. That there is some significant policy conflict. And I think that that conflict is driving the discussion at the federal level to rethink cannabis or at least get to the point where the states that have already done so start to make policy and move in that direction. So I thought the approval of epidemics was a really critical data point to consider not just for the, you know, the company that makes it or, you know, the biotech industry, but for, you know, really, much of broader implications than that. I mean, the other thing I'd point to which I think is equally as important as the twenty eighteen farm Bill now, the farm Bill is a a piece of federal legislation that gets updated every three or four years, and it basically is the government's kind of policy stance towards the nation's agricultural industry and the farm Bill in two thousand eighteen basically kicked the door wide open for. The cultivation of hemp and hemp is a cannabis plant up until now there was a handful of states that were experimenting with growing him. But now hemp versus marijuana. It's like it's like flip flopped. I mean at the at the federal level hemp is is legal now and some states actually have more stringent restrict more stringent regulations, you know, versus like marijuana, which is illegal to federal level. But you know, states are legalizing and coming up with new things for it. So that to me also, you know, the farm Bill legalising hemp cultivation again is is significant policy conflict at the federal level. Which to me suggests the discussion is moving forward where the United States is eventually going to loosen restrictions on how it classifies cannabis. That's pretty cool. So. Yeah. So let's talk about this. This new research service that you guys are starting up here. And it's it's called the cannabis capitalist. Is that right? Correct. Okay. It just right off the tongue. Right. It certainly does. And and so how often are you going to publish this thing? So we are going to publish on the second Thursday of each month. And we hosted a really successful webinar last night that was quite fun to do. And we will be looking to in terms of kind of some of the goals of this provide probably another six to eight actual stock recommendations with full analysis over the next year. But I also have the flexibility to you know, not off. For a recommendation, if it doesn't seem appropriate at the time based on valuation, or you know, milestones that are are upcoming in lieu of that. We will be putting reports out on some type of industry trend or data points or something. That's interesting that will help the audience to better understand this industry and to make as as good of investment decisions. They can you know, should they be looking at you know, buying and or selling some cannabis stocks that are out there or cannabis related companies as well. I see. And so you guys sent me some some info in this deal starting to portfolio with three stocks three buys, and you've got ten stocks on a watch list with by prices that you're kind of looking at. That's that's where you're starting out yet. So the watchlist we have just a small. Small clarification there that that's going to be a list of companies that we have interest in that we think investors need to look at and no something about if they're going to be investing in this space. They are not recommendations to buy right now. But sometime in the future that is going to be kind of our primary source as to where we we come up with new recommendations. I I hear you loud and clear I've I've have done that in the past in my own newsletter. It's a good idea, and you get so any anybody who signs up for this thing's going to get three reports. Let me just read the title. So everybody knows what they are the cannabis capitalist portfolio foundation. So these are the three companies you need today that that you're starting to portfolio with the second report is ten cannabis stocks to buy over the next ten months. There's your watchlist, right? Yep. And then the cannabis IPO you don't wanna miss which. Sounds really interesting. I'll have to ask you what that is. Once we shut the recording off your. And we have a deal for everybody. Who's listening now on stands berry investor? Our normally this thing is four thousand bucks a year. Good for you, man. That's a that's a stout price. But they can get it. For almost forty percent off twenty five hundred for a one year subscription by going to WWW dot stands berry cannabis event dot com. So there's your deal there. You know, you pay zippo for the podcast, and you get forty percent off of this new service that we got. So we did talk yesterday. I guess we had about five minutes to go here. We talked yesterday. There was one particular company that you felt comfortable kind of releasing into the to the world for free as it. Were you want to say a few words about that or you? Yeah. Sure. Absolutely. We okay, we talked about it on the on the webinar company called green. Thumb industries. It is a. United States based and United States focused company. That is I think positioning itself in places that already offer very good regulatory visibility. So, you know, various states around the country the management team is spot on. I think with its strategy. We've met with us, which by the way is one of the things that were trying to do here at least in in in my franchises, meet with as many companies as possible that we're gonna be recommending, you know, that's a that's a institutional investor institutional research type of process, and I think it's always good to to meet a management team because those are the people that are going to make your investment successful. So it's good to know. Oh them anyway. So so US based company I think that is going to be positioned very well as we continue to see more states legalize cannabis for either recreational or medicinal use the company, I think is one of the characteristics. We've identified here that we like in any stock is these guys are really good alligator of capital. You know, they seem to be making again what I call out a good common sense kind of decisions. And in my years on Wall Street's amazing. The number of non commonsense decisions that seem to be out there being made by who. I thought were really smart people. So yeah, that's the norm. Oh, I don't know about that. But so I mean, these guys are making decisions like look at it doesn't make sense for us to go in and spend a bunch of money building grow facility in California. When there's you know ten thousand plus licenses to do that already. You know, we don't want to be wanted ten thousand we want to be one of, you know, eight, you know, so they'll spend the money, and they'll they'll they'll actually go through the work to to bid, you know, follow the state regulations to to to fill out an application and bid for the business, and they're and they're winning. I mean that that is that itself suggests a very a very good management team. I mean, you know, think about think about going to get your driver's license, right? And the motor vehicle association or the DMV or whatever it's called in your state. You know, there's hurdles with that. Right. It's a pain. It's not easy. It should be. Now. Imagine trying to go get a license for a schedule one narcotic drug at the federal level that your state says you. Can sell now entr and trying to negotiate those hurdles and he's guys who are doing it. So I think I think that is a is a big a big positive flag for us as well. And then the financials are are strong, the they're they're looking at hitting what I call triple digit millions this year, and then likely doubling that in twenty twenty got plenty of cash in the Bank in the centrally no debt. So all in all it's a it's it seems to be a really good story that I think has a good bit of legs in the coming years either. As a standalone story in stock all by itself, or as a potential takeout for one of the larger companies to come in because the end of the day. I think you're gonna see, you know, a ton of companies you're already seeing it flood into this business. And then you're gonna see a handful of them. The consolidators and start buying them up in this is one that potentially could go either route either on its own or as a takeout candidate. So at this point in time, I think it's it's very interesting. The the other thing I'll mention in terms of allegation because everything comes back devaluation at some point. You know, the US focus stocks are less expensive and they're less expensive because there's an overhang in the United States, right? Cannabis is still illegal here at the federal level. There's uncertainty and uncertainty drives lower valuations. But if were reading the writing on the wall correctly, that's when we want to be buying stocks. Right. You wanna buy a stock when the story has got a little hair on it. And as the hair clears up, and the story clears up the stock and work, the Canadian based companies are much more expensive as you'll as you'll see as in the report, we put out, but but that's an that's another reason we like these guys, and I guess. Last thing I'll say about his other smart people in the business, including competitors of green thumb have made very favorable comments about the business. So when your competitors are saying good things about you. I think that rings very true. Yes. That's a very good Phil Fisher and Warren Buffett technique go. Go ask everybody else about this company and see what they say. And you get a really nice picture of. It's good business the other competitors, generally paint. Really nice picture for you thorough, Tom. Well, we come to the end of our time. I wanna thank you very much. I think this new thing you're doing is going to be a huge hit. I can't wait to read it myself. And you know, good luck. I'm I'm sure this is going to be hit. I'm sure people are going to buy your service. And and I I mean, I'm going to eat it up put it that way. So and maybe, you know, after a while after you know, you get some more recommendations out there. We'll have you back on the program, and we'll we'll find out where where cannabis. Is at that point. You know, maybe several months in the future. Yeah. Thank you very much. Glad to be here. Happy do it. This is a lot of fun. All right. Thanks, tom. And we'll we'll talk to you soon. Hopefully, very good. Okay, folks. One more time that was Tom Carroll and. I want you to go to stan's berry cannabis event dot com. That's where you can get almost forty percent off twenty five hundred dollars for a one year subscription. The thing is normally four grand, and it's a brand new service. So you when you get it. If you sign up you're going to get the very first reports, and it comes with three special reports, the cannabis capitalist portfolio ten cannabis stocks to buy over the next ten months and the cannabis IPO you don't want to miss. I don't even know what that is yet. I gotta ask Tom. So you know, you're finding out about this stuff almost at the same rate of speed as I am. And you know, if if cannabis is something you're interested in I promise, you this research is going to be kind of a cut above all the stuff that you're hearing. When TV you here. There's a lot of sketchy companies in the cannabis space, and Tom has a huge long track record as a very careful effective stock picker, so I'm really. I'm looking forward to find out what the good businesses and cannabis are and Tom is going to tell us stands berry cannabis event dot com. Okay. It's time for the mailbag. Remember, your feedback is important to the success of our show, and you can just Email with a question or comment to feedback at investor our dot com, and I read every one of them, and I try to respond to as many as I can. So this week. I've got a few of them here this week. I've got a few few really nice wants to read here. First one is from James h and he says, hi, Dan, I have some nervousness about the market being near a long-term top. I believe it could run some more. But I'm interested in diversification outside the market, and he's got three questions here. One. Can you share what your portfolio allocation looks like in terms of stock cash gold real estate other? I realized their equity options for some of those categories like, and he cites G L D, the ticker symbol for for the, you know, it's like a gold bullion trust that you can buy and he says, I also realized that's a personal question. But hearing from you on this, and why you've chosen your allocation would be a big help. Well, I'll answer that before I get to the other two and basically I'm cashed up right now. And the only equities I own our gold stocks. I also have a portfolio of options most of which are puts. All say is that you have to understand what position I'm in. Okay. I my contract for biz me from from buying the stocks that I recommend my newsletter. Okay. And and imagine if there's like some horrendous market crash, and, you know, something should happen and people should cancel their subscriptions took shooting value. And porter calls me up and says, nobody wants you anymore. And neither do we. You know, I so my portfolio tends to be kind of an alternative, but it includes as much of what I can get you know, that resembles my own recommendations as possible. So for example, I do have I recommend precious metal or really mining royalty companies, and I own a very small one myself. So I hope that gives you some insight but biggest asset right now is cash. Get like by far number two. He says what are your thoughts on real estate is an investment such as residential income properties? And or tradeable commercial reits is now a good time for either. I mean in general right now, it depends on where you go. Like, the the froth has come off. And is probably going to continue to come off like high end, New York real estate, for example. I know the froth has come off higher end houses here in southern Washington, and you know, in general kind of around the country. So it's it's on a company by company basis. We do have one commercial read in the extreme value portfolio. But their biggest asset is cash they're selling property. So I'm real cautious. There. And as far as residential income goes. I mean, if you're talking about your local area, you know, more about it than I do. But I would really run the numbers and make sure that you're coming out ahead. If you go that way. Final question with regards to trading. Stocks are good rule or analysis on using trailing stops versus buy and hold when considering dividend stocks. Boy, that's a tough one that really is a very personal thing. And I don't think there's a rule of thumb. In general. Most people, you know, if they use trailing stops they use it on all or most of their portfolio. We had Richard Smith from trade stops who who sells trailing stop software on the program. He said, you know, I think it was like ten or twenty percent of his own portfolio doesn't use trailing stops and he experiments with positions there. And then the rest of it does. So maybe you might consider something like that. But if you think you have a really good long-term hold on a stock. That's gonna pay rising dividends. I mean, it's it's a really good question. I'm I'm sorry. I don't have a Pat answer for you says, I really appreciate your thoughtful analysis. I'm an extreme value subscriber. And do not hesitate to recommend your newsletter. You know, James I thought you sounded like a really smart guy. Okay. They'll back number two, Dan you've made me a real fan of stands berry investor. Our and he says a bunch of other stuff. I just want to get to his question. He says, so here's my question with boomers downsizing and millennial showing a profound lack of interest in. The traditional three bedroom. Two bath home with two or more cars in the driveway. Not to mention millions of people squeezed out of home ownership during the great housing crash. Could we be in the midst of a massive shift in home ownership? And I think it's the that's by Mike, see, Mike. I'll direct you to an article in the Wall Street Journal recently called a growing problem in real estate too many too big houses, and you could be onto something there. I'm not going to say, yes or no at this point. But it sure makes a lot of sense. And there's some data in that article that you might wanna check out. Okay. One more question. This one is from Jack e Jackie says love your show and your newsletter extreme value your rant this week. That is to say last week regarding how investing is very personal in different for every person hit home for me. I'm a stands very lifetime alliance member and have been saving investing for many decades. At least since my preteen paper route days. Good for you, man. That's awesome. After listening to the latest podcast in hearing the phrase quantitative easing for the thousandth time. I realize I still don't really know what it means. I am not dumb and have been investing successfully for many decades. But my head seems very hard on this concept when googling the word quantitative one gets this, and he just gives a definition of quantitative data. Then he Google quantitative easing says one gets the introduction of new money into the money supply by central Bank. It seems he says it seems the term means that a central Bank is creating some quantities of money and credit from nothing. Is there a way to describe this in layman's terms that is very easy to grasp they're creating money from vacuum? Who gets it? First big banks, US federal government, the military. Okay. This is a great question. There's actually a great article on Wikipedia, and I encourage you to go look quantitative easing on Wikipedia. But yeah, you got the basic idea quantitative easing means. A set program usually like some monthly amount by a central Bank. Dedicated to buying securities usually bonds of that country. You know, so the the federal observable say, you know, we're gonna spend whatever it is ten billion a month or something buying long dated US treasury bonds. So, you know, the first person who gets the money are, you know, who whoever owned those treasury bonds or the treasury, right? If they're just buying them from the treasury. They're probably buying them from Goldman Sachs. So that would be the first use of that money. But that that's basically the answer. And then go and Wikipedia not give you more detail than you ever would want to see your life. But you do have the basic idea. Correct. All right. So that's it folks that is another episode of the Stanbury investor. Our I hope you enjoyed this when because I really really love talking with Tom Carroll, and you know, go to if you're into cannabis investing. And you think there might be a real business here?

Young was basically joined us in the last minute so he wasn't expecting any of this and has nine dollars or what we're going to be talking most probably so so sad. Cut Some slack. Because he has no idea of of what topics are on the agenda. But he's well rid and he'll be out to provide some useful commentary right idealist. Not This is upside Two hundred and forty nine briefly. I want to tell you that episode. Two hundred fifty because coming up IS ANZAC DIED AND VS. I've been banging on about Anzac Day. Ceremonies enhanced filled with just Christian praise Christian hymns and invariably a Christian pastor of some sort as as master of ceremonies more often than not and I've I'm collecting off collected a lot of anti pamphlets and one of the things that just gets me. So of course with the crown of ours is no. They're not insect day ceremonies. So what odd decide today is going to the next day or two record a special podcast which you can. Dan Lie between side probably from about on Tuesday. Probably about this diaby valuable. Dan Lied and then sometime on the Anzac Day dawn. If you like you can just walk out onto your driveway and with your earphones in play. What will be twenty minute on his velvet glove secular Anzac Day ceremony? And you looking forward to that one was. That's a great idea wholesome. I when it's going to be different to the normal one because I thought that the normal antic die is sort of glorifying war to some extent it seems to me and so all issue a heartfelt. Thank you air. Soldiers who have fought for us and a heartfelt apology for sending them off onto lots of wars at the at the we shouldn't have been involved in the first place and in a few interesting ratings and things so that will be on Look for that in your downloads and that will appear sometime around style suspect so so that's coming and last week we had tried to bite and I it was interesting because Basically Hugh said to me found a guys willing to debate trip. And he's he's name in a great. What have you agree to on that for and I really had a quiet cul. I had no idea of what they were going to. Cy in particular in quite surprised by the philosophical argument. Matthew Paul what. What did you think of these arguments? I know there's been a bit of doing and trying on the facebook page. Do you know it was a little bit over my head. I have to admit because I have never really studied that angle of in other theological debate myself. So I'm not all that familiar with that side of it It was it was interesting. It's not the sort of thing that I'd and willingly submit myself to on our weekly Isis was no I came. You know but interesting to hear somebody who's willing to going to bat for God As as You know Useless argument that it is in my humble opinion. It was. It's it's nice to see somebody who's got got season tickets and and argue the point and he was he was very. He's obviously an intelligent guy and passionate about his beliefs and good luck to him. You know as much as I heartily disagree with these conclusions most. What were your thoughts thought. Hugh did a great job And yet it just amazes me listening to Matthew. It just amazes me listening to go. It's like that obviously very intelligent And just the way that they've they're able to convince themselves in delude themselves and others it's but Y- good on him for having the nerve to Go into battle so to speak with you and he always liked is fully expecting the usual sort of argument that at some point during the whole. Shebang it comes down to faith but he was really providing a new angle where he wasn't relying on faith and he was relying on on a logical argument. That scene follows from beef from a and I just thought that a lot of the following was a stretch and then it just didn't follow and he would say things that just did not necessarily follow so I put in my comments on the facebook page and I haven't been keeping track of the tunes and throwing t much but yeah so it's really. I guess that's just a new angle that you've got now when you're dealing with theus the five angle or the sort of I 'cause rational in all sorts of law line and they seem to be quite different a riding the same destination or two different trophies travel. What do you think they do in the so-called theological colleges and seminaries where they literally thousands and thousands of people have been through these things debating that very issue so they've practiced and Matthew to his credit has has has looked into. I dare say you know. He's he's a student philosophies how he would have looked at a lot of stuff like that. You know this is not exactly new is just what I wanted to say. Hundreds of years really something that stood at family During that interview was he's raising full. cheese philosophy was something along. The lines of them are charged today. That said that could justify my views justify my fife Waiting to the study with a very cause more than an a goal for doing that study is And it was sort of starting his boss Which is fair enough. I guess we all do so people. Have we all have a boss? It's IT'S THIN. Just can the argument be shown to the dysfunctional and and and air riddled? And I think it was so that was the problem. But then we'll we all you boss. At the end of the argument I was still left with the feeling that matthew was still arguing from a faith perspective that at the end of the day he was deciding that that argument was better than the you know. Materials there are a couple of taunts were For example I said well the first. 'cause he he. He led to the conclusion that the fullest cool was had to have intelligence and that it knew what it was doing and when I said well it could have been random. It could be a random event and he. He's the biggest. She's reply was well. I'd I'd think side but really that is on. Just GonNa take it on faith the possibility rather than the one you've mentioned with aunt really. Identifying why randomness was just impossible. So but yeah gave it a good good college try. I thought it was great to have somebody with got sort appear in this forum and into what's I got on your Matthew I say and it'd be nice down the track if we had some other debates to do with topics like secularism and and is is a secular country or should we be funding private schools or the like say like the debate. So if there's anybody at the from the angle or if you get another topic you wanNA run past Feel Free Mike Context. So so that was that that was good and I forgot to say that I did enjoy Hughes arguments. Sorry for not mentioning you. Hugh you argued the case very well. Hello in the Chat Room Allison and weight watcher. Make some comments. If you're in the chat room so we now your they are and I kind. It was also refreshing last week. Just to get away from Corona virus for wall. But we're going to have to get back to it because it is. All conceiving isn't it so one of the things? I was thinking not just as a prelude into these is is Paul. You've accused me of what aboutism. And yes and was that was okay. And it's it's true I do. I am guilty of what aboutism but a point but sometimes its avowed thing to say. What about the in different circumstances so it's not necessarily bad and I was thinking about it because I do? I do like to point out the errors in the American Empire. And when you might sort of say about Sean whatever I am inclined to say well you could say the same thing about America and that one of the reasons. Why do it is I think is because I find it more interesting because when an authoritarian rising China just Fox people over? We just applying obvious like you see. It's in front of you now and everybody can see it like I can. It's a totalitarian regime. That is screwing people ever caught obviously and forcing the do things that they don't want to do but when the US I it's through subtle means it's three things of economic power and things that aren't so obvious and people aren't saying it and so that's why I find it just more interesting to cy. Well that either. They is obvious. Of course they doing that. You noticed maybe not so. Obviously either here. He's another great doing something very similar. So that's part of why trump trump must be your new best friend because he really really obvious when these fucking people out of those he ain't he does. It's an interesting phenomena isn't it and we'll have little. Let's let's talk about trump and what's going on in America with the corona virus so just before I finish the other reasons to talk about America. Lot is because honestly it's not every day that a the greatest most powerful civilization the world's ever seen crumble before you very is like. I really think they crumbling. I don't really think it's that bad you think thriving now not driving. But nobody's driving at the moment but they certainly not crumbling. I mean they've always had in a variety of dissenting positions. And you know they don't hide that but in a sense that's that's a sign of healthy democracy is well just the CA- rhinovirus wouldn't you see that? As an example of normally the world's most powerful country avoids problems through its power but the Carina virus is just decimating that country to visible enemy true. Yes so head. I had a proper social welfare system a proper health system and proper leadership that now organized medical supplies. If they'd organized their Paler like could have avoided a lot of deaths that have had the more that way so I just think for example. That's just an example of an all powerful civilization actually suffering more than some third world countries. How to be seen of course because we haven't yet seen what's going to happen in most of developing countries treat but from what we've seen. Sifi any worse than a lot of a lot of poor developing countries will probably come out of this better than America and end when you compare America to its allies when you can see what's possible with proper resources improper organization advisory services that you're aware onto that the The trump administration cop funding to the Various government departments responsible for control of diseases pandemics. He's cut funding year after year. And this result. So it's you know I think we can cheat. I'm a favorite of the responsibility to the current administration rather rather than America as a whole. Well yes but if you look at for example the protesters that are currently running around in America demanding that that the case that the selection cease and the guy back to work in this pretty intense demonstrations occurring in incident sections of America at the moment and seeing different mains about it and people are sort of the usual vice crazy. Steve Americans don't understand. I just gotTa stay indoors while this happens and how how dumb on but what that doesn't take into account. Is that if you've got nine money in your bank account and is virtually nice. I shall security system and you know who the government's not going to help you out out in your data running out of money next week. You need to go back to what you gotta run the risk of working and possibly getting the Koran of ours. Because you now. If you don't work you're going to starve to death or the bank's GonNa foreclose on your mortgage or on your landlords GonNa kick you and you're GonNa be on the straight and so really when you see these people when they sign that demand to work hold. I want my freedom to work. It's in many cases signing. I don't want to end up as a homeless person. Which is what's going to happen to me. If I'm not allowed to work. Because Guardian Social Security System here does quite accurate there is social security system. It might not be as it could be. There is a social security system. Well it's not good enough. It's negligible isn't good enough so of course. This is a security system. But it's not good enough today. What's needed and another thing? Another comment I would make is what proportion of the American population is joining in these in these protests. Because I I would guess it. Just a a rebel in some bunch of gun nuts and libertarians. Who think they freedom is being stolen? I mean it's not exactly widespread. Riots in every American city is a I get a lot of media attention as as you'd expect it's trump territory it's the midwest. It's the flyover states that's where it's happening but how many cities is it occurring? You really know them up but not see that happening. In other countries yet there was something happening on Bondi beach a couple of weeks like this police had to come in. I necessarily the people off the beach. Nothing nothing about those screening is on that telling. This is the only country in the world with people have taken to the streets and demanded there to work. Doesn't say something well. It says that they have a healthy healthy democracy where people feel they have to go out and straighten protests which could also nine that deny they gonna be screwed if they can't go out and then money in that they're going to be on the SCRAT- eight and I have to work saying it could also is every night. It doesn't apply near an astrologer. For example. Many casual workers are going to have more money than they've ever had before so it doesn't end. Well studied as an included all casual workers. You have to have worked for minimum of twelve months. You'll still be on a new start allowance. Then we they up to. I mean you cannot compare the social security arrangements in Australia America. And that's why we don't have people rioting on the streets demanding that I'd be able to return to work and you don't sing in the UK. Either because they got hefty social security system that they're putting place. It's a function of of the society that I've ended up in this position so goes talk much yourselves. I'm just GONNA re start my own. I it is working. Thought my misses my My Chat Room wasn't working site. Sorry I'll keep going so so when you see these people protesting and demanding their right to work. I think I think some of that is it's listen darasing to say. I demand the right to my freedom to work because Obama hardworking American. That's listening barricading than saying if I had not only had to work. I'm going to be on the straight next week. Please let me because ongoing to be starving. I think the other part of it could be. You've got people who are demanding that other people be allowed to return to work because they want to cut their hair and to deliver pizza into into work for them so other people are gonNA enjoy having other people wake forest was. You've heard the two arguments here and d think it's USSR. Hey you want to be in the middle like if you're really gonNA take otherwise. Scott's not because he's got some but any thoughts on that Well one thing that I was thinking about was it appears that the handling Iran Avar a lot worse than the US aid in line In terms of the data that's coming out the deaths capita And the Thais fatality right They actually despite the fact that they very proud of the National Health Service. They appear to be doing much was in the United States so you can slander the United States. The how bad they handling the situation but if you look at the Dada that's coming added pieces of the United Kingdom is is doing Lewis and Diana have a much better such security system there. That happened much better. National Health Service is inside. The social security system will keep the pumps off the street and from protesting and demanding to win Saturday. But I'm surprised by that because the bean it seemed to me. A bit of discipline lockdown an Erica. So why doing this? What lockdown. Yeah it seemed to me. More stringent lockdown in the UK. Then Marietta I want something. Not that must take. Were not aware of is it is. It doesn't seem to be a direct correlation between the strictness of the lofty on. And and how will they performing in each country? I mean Japan is doing the best out of any country Very dense population. If you look at the deaths per capita there about half of what Even using Linda New Zealand will light to the guy and I had the day to the end of March. We had those death at the start of March They had a very stripped walked down Strict House and yet the performance if you measure in terms of the death capital they're about. They're they're on a par with Australia side. I think it's A. It's a bit of a myth that there's a direct correlation between the strictness of the lockdown in the actual performance of ESTA capital Germany to. It's A. It's a lot less strict as well. Isn't it. I don't think I've for example closed public parks and things like that? So sweating is is a bit of an outlaw. In terms of its attitude it's It's still cafes in bars and things like that. I think they've limited Data race to fifty people if they've had a very more relaxed approach since I and yet Sweden up performing a lot worse than the other Scandinavian countries. But if you look at the performance has seen land to Denmak. Denmark's is about Serena off the four times worse than fingernails are. Just doesn't Mike. So can you put your finger on any particular alcon? Yeah and you know a think. There's too much emphasis thing. Put ON LOCKDOWN. And the the the the strictness of lockdown the research that often come into Kabul suggests that the super spreading events applying a big role in the number of deaths in the number of infections wrought a familiar with the the spreading non concert or a match on or or a cruise ship In a church service just France Yep That cool is in. There was a medical conference similar in Canada. Runge when you when you try to back to one of these events here I think at one point in time. There was a province of Canada in idei end of all factions in that one province was from this medical conference on the Highway San here in Australia with them. The Ruby Princess Lacson contributed to get a third of all deaths in als We've performing well. But without the Ruby Princess we would we'd be superstars on the on the world stage. I can't say on lucky with few of the super events in that can do just to say it was a soccer match in Bahama Played One of the teams from spine. in from Valencia. I think it was in Milan. You had you had something about two-thirds talk of the gamma travel too long standing a soccer stadium. Seeing enchanting spittle ivory Gela catch the train back to Alma and We saw what happened in Bergamo to start can limit those super spreading. It's I think that has fog writer. Impact on your performance than Strictness you looked in to lead that place. Warren is always the capital low of some of one of the provinces of the worst-hit province. Talking to north I believe that in the case of Italy as well. They have a lot of Chinese Chinese tourists but Chinese workers working in Chinese enterprises in Italy because of the Chinese government didn't actually either realize. Tell everybody that there was something very bad going. On in Wuhan people from Wuhan and surrounding areas were apparently still travelling to Italy and and other destinations. Of course Y longer than they should have been and Italy really copped a lot of it because of the number of Chinese people travelling to Italy from the In the Chat Room weight watchers says there was a polk abattoir in North Dakota which had fifty percents of the cases in the state for all people working and living in close proximity abattoir and just Back to candidate trailing tournament somewhere in Canada. He think cooling. You've got to go as three go as at a standing fights to fight bicycles just some spits nome well just back to Canada a friend of right-wing. Tiny's was at a conference in Canada a morning conference and he came back went on a holiday in. Tasmania on a boat for ten days and unbeknownst to him that corona virus in infected a very playful on the vote and until recent episode in the hospital in northern. Tasmania here's pretty much single handedly responsible for the corona virus in Tasmania. So Yeah theory they have all that you can get business nothing. Nigerian they commissioned major at spreading events in we can limit the super spreading events. That's going to have a dramatic on on the the deaths because it's the other thing just getting harking back to America again is that there's a significant number of people in in climbing their right to work just signed the whole thing's hikes and there's no real Kuroda virus and there's a significant number a significant number of people saying all a Beta and visit an. He's an amazing places and there's and there's also a number of people well we're talking about will it be vaccine down the track. Did you hear what neither Yawovi had to sign a bill? So now that you're convicted world number one tennis player said he said I don't believe in vaccines and if it becomes the case that you need a vaccine to travel the world play tennis. That could be the end of my career. I'm not sure I'll have to think there is but you know about you now. He also believes the scarf areas a real person today. Really just main can raise the tigger hand-in-hand serious. Now it's true yes. I smoke fish and d listener in the days when I used to have some space to read fiction one nine. Thais went to apocalypse novels with some these particular and the interesting thing was in zombies. There was never a large contingent of people who refuse to believe that. There's a couple apocalypse was happening. Like everybody believed it so when I start writing Apocalypse Zombie Apocalypse novels? Infusion I'll have to account for significant proportion of the population you just refuses to believe that they were even Popovich last long putting my hand up. I don't believe any say okay so I of course. Donald Trump is in front of the cameras. Every die Giving his press conferences. And whatever have you guys watched any of them at all? I can't stomach it wrong. Trump is a more on it. Well what Schwann? Because I don't WanNa say it's brilliant. It's not he's he's just doing what comes naturally team because he is a natural bowl. Shida. Who's used to just talking? Shit and getting away with it. I don't WanNA GIVE THE SAINTS. That he's him a great strategist about this. It's the only thing he candy but it's not even a great arte but Iran professional bullshit and his ability in these press to just long by into Cy. We're doing a great job. We're doing much better than anybody else in the world and death numbers of this. You know he'll say figures completely wrong and he will say you know we were onto this before anybody else and I was doing this before anybody else. And and and you'll you'll listening to it and if you didn't know better you'd go actually. It seems like he has been doing a good job. Like I can understand how people only died is Fox media watching. This would go the president's doing great job because if you don't fact check what he says and just take it as as being the case or if the fact checking you here is from an organization that you'll convinced is corrupt embarrassed. He he gives us spillway. You Know He. He's taking questions from reporters and it'll be from a group that doesn't it'll be news organization anti-trump and he'll say where are you from fake news. Give me a question anyway. And like He. He's up for it as a fighter. Aspira would like other politicians might show but he he's on the attack and he'll take him on inside the majority of people in listening to the words that he signed the majority of people looking at him and have confidence isn't he's body language. They listening to each time but they're just not listening to you all listening to the words that are coming out of his and you are analyzing the woods but you'll pop the minority people people. Don't listen paid a lot listening to the woods. The trump signed looking at how sighing. And that's why more important than what he signed. Yup you're on the time is only important. Belligerent Time Yup absolutely body language and yeah he looks presidential and he and he doesn't talk like what some of his core followers would see as aloof intellectual. He yes exactly. They relate to him because he is not an orator. He's a pretty. His command of the English language is pretty ordinary. Frankly but you know up probably so is the command of English for a lot of these core followers. They liked that Nez Barnum says. Don't trying to fact checking they just looking at t's You know he's just getting the VIBE and exactly inside the presidency. I want to give a strong response. That sounds right and agree but what it is that he's doing. His in these conferences is a form of gas lighting in India listening. You might have heard the term gas lauding in the media of lights I am was. You've been hearing the term gas lighting even accused of it really choline to tell and aware of the origins of gas lauding. Disbelief Dicey Danai. It's a form of psychological manipulation in which in which a person or group covertly so seeds of doubt in targeted individual making them question their I- memory perception or judgement. So it comes from a movie. The stage play gas lights and in the story the husband attempts to convince his wife and others cheesy and sign by manipulating small elements of their environment in insisting she is mistaken remembering things incorrectly or delusional when she points out these changes and applies title which. I did night before. This was the title alludes to how the abusive husband slowly dims the guest lots in their home while pretending. Nothing has changed in an effort to make his wife out around perceptions so as I watch Donald Trump on this blind these things I think I'm being subjected the gas line of telling me things and I'm Reid. Was He really I to say that like he so convincing fortunately enough hard evidence that you can just go to of course and become the gas lauding. So I've got a link to Laura. I call a calendar of shine which is basically one of the anti-trump organizations which little snippets of things that trump said at different times and basically all through February and most of March. He was saying it's not a problem. It's under control. We're going to be falling. You'll probably go. Why and then guys. It's a pandemic I told you. So we've been onto this before anybody. It's crept up on the tape so that's guess lauding and that's effectively. What he's doing to us just see. So what trump is doing. Which is I think. I think the guy could win this goddamn election. That's coming up. These are certainly you think he's at the very least he should win an academy award. Wow so what he's doing is he's blaming other people so he's blaming China he's blaming the World Health Organization and he's blaming Democratic governors of the states and sign that they're not doing the job as state governance that high. He's just the fifth president of the Federal Government and a lot of this was the responsibility of the states to just dealing with that one. First of all is huge amount of evidence where basically hospitals are trying to borrow medical safety equipment. Ppa personal protective equipment. And not only have. They got to compete against other states purchasing. So the prices of these things skyrocketing but they're all saying having to compete with the federal government and the feds are coming in and literally taking stuff off loading buys and off air appliances off ships. That states have agreed to buy in the Fed's discount inside. Nope we're taking that. And is this incredible story by this guy. Andrew Artenstein from Baystate Health Springfield Massachusetts describing. How they've got to basically search the world for PPA and and when I get a lead the extremely secretive and he tells the story of aww being sent a sample and it all looked good. And then I went to meet these trucks out in the middle of no way and I'll just read some excerpts of it here. He said all. I arrived by car to make the final call on whether to execute the deal to semi trailer. Trucks Cleverly Mart is food service vehicles met US at the warehouse. When fully lighter the trucks type two distinct roots back to Massachusetts to minimize the chances that they contents would be detained or redirected. This is terrible. This is what reduced to to having to hide their PPA in such circumstances and sounds like he's taken from her gangster movie it does. It won't try. Trevor heard you speaking the Pasta having a common enemy and I you know I think it's The United States has got home Anthony. At the moment he's devoted well it's h. site for themselves isn't that an end to a certain extent. Astrid We've caused Boden's and eight is tackling this with common enemy at one of the one of the wise that you win. A WAR IS TO DIVIDE AND CONQUER ERA. And if if this virus is the enemy by heaven divided us with devoted themselves but I would inside stallion. Steitz have divided on. I think she'll extent an audit doing our selection on his side boundary as a matter of convenience of during a law in some way to stop movement. I see that as being a cooperative if I think I think you'd have to say that this sort of group of the federal government and the premiers getting together regularly to me. Ustralia is actually come together as a cooperative effort even though I have decided to create saw on a state based sort of the Andrea System but I don't think Australia is being divided by but look America is already a divided society. So it's already the haves the have nots. The they're flyers Rustbelt Steitz this the liberal lights on in California and and in New York. It's already divided and this is just highlighting the divisions I think so I beheld site What's happening with trump's popularity even being keeping Count Scott approvals? Fantastic all night for marketing. Some he's making the most of this situation and scientists is interesting both seem to be benefiting from situation. He has indeed Ceylon godless of of the. I mean. You couldn't say that Scotty from marketing is taking the same strategy as trump and yet they're both benefiting from chat rooms going off Mary. Murray in the Chat Room said Trevor even read these comments. Mary give me a break here. I'm trying to conduct a conversation. Keep half an oil and what you guys are science if I can pick out something. That's good I'll I'll put it in but it's not easy. You do it if come on. Cut Me some slack. Good Mary exactly. Se said trump. Binding the states. And that's unfair because he's actually stealing stuff off them and they have to hide it in disguise it food trucks plus they actually a lot of the states they had to borrow money and credit deficit side icon actually fund purchasing stuff. Yes according to certain laws. Since tied to an idol so in many cases states legally barred from deficit spending which means in terms of crosses especially those producing huge budget shortfalls through collapsing tax revenue. They are functionally unable to responsible. So yeah somewhere that after the during the nine thousand nine hundred thousand nine hundred and twenty influence a pandemic right. That was the prevailing wisdom in countries like Australia as well. I think they didn't want to borrow money in in going into debt to To address the situation ear will they states cannot legally unable to live pass laws previous lying on the conservative government's that cy under nicer income stances. Can you run deficit time? I'll walk how you avoid coaling it. The Spanish flu the run off man. Well done very tasty said trump's not being places you know I just you know one of the better term. I'll just referred to the time when it happened because we all know. Spanish flu was probably it was probably misnamed anyway. Say Trump's identified the Steitz who is GonNa Blind. He's also identified the World Health Organization saying gentlemen thoughts on on. He's I think he's declared he's GonNa pull funding from the World Health Organization in some sympathy for that out there from even non trump supporters thoughts on the World Health Organization. He hasn't actually pulled the funding. He's talking about pulling the funding is my understanding so I mean he often does. This doesn't he often says well we're going to quit. We're GONNA walk away and he uses it as a way of laughing people into doing what he wants to do. Well whether whether he does not do you think it's a good idea. I don't think too good idea but I do think the World Health Organization has a lot of questions to answer. Because we've we've previously. I think on this podcast questioned the United Nations and whether that was an organization with persevering with remember that news. Well we've seen some examples in recent times of why we would have grave doubts about the United Nations. I mean China is now the Human Rights Council and the others like Saudi Arabia and And apparently the World Health Organization leader has very close links with the government in Beijing and people questioning his judgment. Once he's links his links are as links. That's right he nominated nudity night. He said good job but in terms of financial political links on our web any. He's no I'm not aware of financial links although he's from Ethiopia. He said good things about them. He said a lot of good things that any actually linked to them in any Y look. I just can't recall the details now but I have read somewhere that he seems to be very very cozy with Xi Jinping or at least Xi Jinping gets a lot of praise from me deserved or not I. So he's the he's the issues I say. United Nations Just to justify previous position to some extent I see different the United Nations at different to the heat because with the United Nations ultimately these countries are going to want to impose the Pale on other countries and this systems whenever they can and there's inherent division in in that power supply way. Bicycling they want to impose their system or their political will on other countries when comes to the World Health Organization I think ultimately everyone can agree that they want pandemics addressed quickly and I want to know about them and I want to share information. It's a form. Four people are more likely to want to agree and cooperate and at the end of the DIA have an agreed objective of controlling old pandemics where possible whereas in the United Nations. They don't have that same single objective that they can all agree on. So that's sort of why on on more favorable than of the Health Organization and the United Nations anyway so I was reading a couple of contrasting things about World Health Organization. Sorry from crikey. He said that there is a few things. So this is one proxy lift wing at. Let bicycler calling into question. The World Health Organizations and pointing out that yes we'll health organization appointed. Robert Mugabe to be goodwill ambassador. Can you believe it you know? Tie the two thousand seventeen. So said is current Director General. I'll just call in Taos because he's last name time to pronounce so he might blunder when he announced Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador That was yes that is deadly serious. Withdrew it. I think under pressure didn't yes. He was pressured and he went on K. So yes I think the other thing. Trevor was the promotion of traditional Chinese medicine. Yes he has provided traditional Chinese medicine indeed and said good things about that He also endorsed. Db's Chinese climbs on the covered nineteen. So He's on January fourteenth said that early investigations show. The Chinese authorities had found no clear evidence of human to human transmission but three days beforehand that whistle Blah. I'd been confirmed that he's lungs are infected with Navarre also with Taiwan. The World Health Organization doesn't recognize Taiwan. And and it's bicycling endorsed the side called wet markets and whatnot. Get this nine hundred. I should really be cooled. Wildlife markets because a wet market is anything any not. But they're not only about while they're about fresh produce and I I would decide. There are a lot of wet markets. That don't have any wild animals in correct. So when I keep saying we need to Bain wet markets then essentially all through the developed world developing will is this markets with life chickens and pigs and base. I mean we explored live. Animals presumably. That gets all wait markets. So I presume they really should be sighing. Wildlife went markets. Because that's where it seems. The transmission of these viruses jump from animals to humans through wildlife rather than through domesticated species say wildlife wildlife. While then yes well well from stroke. Wild animals opposed to domestic seems to be the world. Health Organization criticized The Australian Federal Government to full banning travel to China in accepting Slots would we banned travel. Incoming floods from China in light February and the world health goes. I actually publicly criticize. The is trying. Governments can't mandate that one but anyway that was from crikey which was quite damning number things we'll health organization and but then from the Guardian time a different perspective which is an interesting. Which and what are you going to bear in mind? Some sympathy for tendrils is having to Cajole people that you have no power over. You want them to tell you stuff. He wanted cooperate. You can't force them to do anything. If you're wanting to get information from the Chinese government will you wanting them to allow sharing of information? You're wanting to deal with them telling them that there are cells. Just nearly killed. The world isn't GonNa get you anywhere in terms of cooperation in getting people on the ground getting information from them. Unfortunately in that situation where you've got naipao there's a sitting Amanda Sucking up that you might have to do in order to try and get some uncooperative people to do things for you. And if you not thing Prising of them they might simply pull up stumps and and not allow you any sort of access to information or whatever like there's a I have some sympathy for that that you'd have to do some bullshit diplomacy to an internal responsibility with no authority those countries your job. Those countries shouldn't be members they shouldn't be participating if they're not willing to put that sorry. That doesn't get you anyway. If you simply cite right China you'll bad boys and we're not letting you into this organization anymore off you go and what happens next on his one like you. Of course you write something about the World Health Organization recently. Is that loss funded? I think it was by spent hundred ninety two million dollars on travel and during the same period. I spent half that amount on fighting Ebola wrought travel is expensive. Yeah I got from the Guardian. I found this one interesting when a pandemic strikes the world's leading experts convened physically virtually in a high tech chime in the basement of the Geneva headquarters of the World Health Organization. It's cooled strategic health up in Santa or is Hijo see shock and approximately urgent acronym for a place where life and death decisions are taken. The whole thing looks like something that Hollywood would set up imagining a pandemic. Who official said quote? You sit there and you hear these experts from all over the world and they really leading people the best expertise available to get the best advice possible. It's it's very impressive in the sense that Hi. This is how it's supposed to work. That sounds good. On the twenty second of January it was in this sitting who emergency committee convened to make a pivotal decision on whether to advise organization to declare a public health. Emergency of international concern a formal riddle it to the world so that meeting twenty second of January. The WHO had been sharing information with member states constantly since the fist. Cluster of cases was first identified but declaring a public health emergency still had a huge symbolic importance. The Director General Ted. Ross Add Hannam Gabrielle. He set in the yourself training in the shock. His top advisors watching as a succession of speakers guide their views on the screens in front of them. I there were reports from China and in Japan and Thailand cases at Maine recently confirmed then. It was the turn of the fifteen members and six advisors on the emergency committee drawn from around the world. The debate was highly technical but it had one critical issue at. It's hot. It was known by then that the varsity spread from person to person but the question was how easily the emergency committee was split down the middle on. The question said Ted. Ross told it to convene again the next day. In the hope. New Data Mart Create a census so I only obligation on the law is to convene a committee but not to follow it but he feels that politically. He needs to get a unanimous decision before he ex or at least an IVA Willman majority. The second is meeting with a challenge. Knob remind Ted Ross. Had the committee adjourn pending further? Study and it was declared a week light on the thirtieth of January after clear evidence of communities prayed. Here's the interesting part of all. That is let me just find. China argued against declaring an emergency but could not have carried the argument alone the other emergency members and advisers experts from the US Thailand Russia France South Korea Canada Japan Netherlands Australia Senegal Singapore Saudi Arabia Sweden and New Zealand. Their voices confidential but for the vote to have been split several Western or western aligned representatives must divided with Beijing really interesting and very inches Armenta pandemic and imagine how many people died needlessly because of that one week delight. Yeah but I've got some sympathy for the way. They've got the experts from largely Western countries. Who SPLIT DOWN THE MIDDLE? Ni- consensus draws again. The next I still consensus awake lighter enough. Information comes their that they get a majority. I can we declaring it. But it'd be interesting to know what countries voted on that decision. Tom I'd like to know what the Australian representative was signing at that The Chili if there's not a consensus itself to tendrils says the Lleida site. Well he's what we're going to do and that's all just put that down to Polish well hobby expert decision but when you get half the experts saying that there is nine eight to coal pandemic and a half assigned readers. It'd be signed. We'll come on guys the expert. Surely you should be able to give me some majority decision. If there's one thing that is told me. Is that experts expert. Opinion is very dubious Well it's highly varied as well in some cases. Do you think the fact that he is not himself. A medical doctor makes any difference in this situation. If he had been a doctor do you think he could have perhaps argued more persuasively one way or another with the The committee and Sean a bit more leadership. Pops its thinking. It was his lack of technical expertise. I think lack of leadership. Sometimes you just have career your tough. Guy Yeah. Well he's got. The decision was to do nothing. If this the and that's often the worst decision but sometimes the best. He chose to take the job so he has to be willing to accept that sort of responsibility to take leadership when needed. He appears to have been lacking in that department It's interesting story right so anyway and to me. This seems like a heating up of a Cold War mixed metaphor. But there's a lot of anti-china sentiment much so that the Waga City Council declared that its sister city arrangement with a small. Chinese city is found battled with con. Ming Ming is not a small city. It's a fairly substantial johnny but in the scheme of Chinese cities is a big one. And it's it's pretty I don't know how many people but it's a big city in terms of southwest and China where it's located but let's see it's a lot bigger MORTGA. Yes but what do you think about that? Do you think that was really just A sad sad and despicable at the sign talk wide despicable because the people of heavy pronounced coming coming coming coming in my nj could mean like the reason for it was that the city was not in a true friendship because it was an extension of the Titanic. -Tarian regime that large of the world about the severity of the nineteen outright. So he's the longest. The Waga Counselor is blaming. The people of could mean for the Khyber teeny outbreak ridiculous. I mean you don't if you want peace an army in the world you get it by talking and and and you don't get by cutting people off tries to see showing your choice. I think it was probably counterproductive as well wrong because the the ordinary people of China will take that as a personal slot on on them rather than on the leadership in Beijing. And in the chat. Rain says that Take a mock biologist. Is that right? So they got. He's got some songs we hasn't PhD in community health. Well half days now. It's not. He's not a doctor but he has a qualification in community health or on. I can't any likes to be referred to as Dr Apparent. Let Ron gang sounds better remember. We took me a cruise ships previously. And how basically Australia City? The cruise ships on your. Why not give us a bit you over people on you and I felt that we were shirking. Our responsibility because my daughter was trapped cruise ship on the other side of the world. I would hype a Western country would do the right thing. Get PEOPLE OFF in enabling to get back. Time was a bit shocked to the way the government was talking to the cruise ships. Because normally it'd be welcoming and will the visitors and the money they bring with them and it's similar to the way they morrison government has basically said to young backpackers and foreign students looking We got a bit of an issue. You better go. I mean because we can't afford to pay you the money we're paying everybody else. But meanwhile we're describing billions of dollars probably a way out. Selling Education to students is about the fourth major. Ed Money on it. I tried Money on it's really really big. And the Morrison government has effectively said to them. All we got a bit of an issue. He piss off. Tom And we'll let you come back when we're ready. You know I mean really. He is wasting a golden opportunity to demonstrate to the world that we are a welcoming hospitable And supportive country. Well it does comeback to either buy or help relied on so apparently in the seventy s Australia took on a lot of immigrants from Uruguay. When are having problems and so when the the ship? The Greg Mortimer operated by the australian-based Aurora expeditions was trapped in off the coast of South America. Trying to get back other countries doing Australia's and said fuck off like we're not helping you at all so Chile and others said you're not staying here and apparently Uruguay put the hand off and said we'll take you and bicycling let them doc organize special buses to take him straight from the dock onto planes have been organized by these trying government and and consequently we got a lot of. Australians pretenders country thanks to the goodwill of the people of Uruguay. Cy in part of that was a sentiment from what Australia had done. Back in the seventy s Feeling of of repaint. It signed These people these people that are on the cruise ship There they fit and healthy though the if they will seek people on there. I'm sure we would get to their assistance on the cruise ships. That are the the staff a lot of mistaken that have to be say way. Just not letting them off a crew of thousand people on the ships and we signed to bed getting off you did. He denies would times. Oh it extends support medical support if there wasn't sufficient medical support on the sheep Dance say the sense of bringing healthy people to show and putting them you know taking them off a floating hotel and putting them on a stationary hotel. I mean I can awesome Justice will on a cruise ship is what they can. I think most on Land Bai's toto but you stuck on a ship I've only on the side. A little and Western countries weren't letting the ship dock because we've been cases of corona virus. And you just stuck there and couldn't get off even though you are willing to pay whatever to get off and get home and you're just GonNa have to stay on that fight for potentially a year until it eventually find his way back to Australia. If ever you'd be signing hanging these people that work on these cruise ships. I pretty much live on them. Bowl Year contracts. For six months on six months being trapped on a cruise ship is is not some kind of get our trust. They can't I can't get off those people on. What is it the Ruby Princess or whatever it is cannot cannot say on ready to get off. Let me off on fly home. It's now docked in port can learn New South Wales and They are taking people off who were sick and needing medical assistance. Because they took off today. I said okay or I I'm GonNa think the patrons before I so dear listener. If you're if you needed this podcast we have patrons go onto a website on just fill the glove. Dot Com.

I picked up that God damn pink a book. The biddle angels of there being I think was the one I've got here and reading going. Is this book all about just. The decrease of violence in the world is is pretty much veterans bills of NHL is a bad bad the reduced amount of violence in the world. Yeah I was like really. She'll eat. Those book is more than just that anti going to talk about other things so I really WanNa read a thousand next book. Nice next book. I got the wrong prefers next because I'll I'll agree with him that violence in the world. But when you when you controlling what somebody much they ate. You'd have to be live with them because if you've got them by the balls anyway so people are benefit as well. China just volley ear well but if the books as rating through the chapters the headings and skimming through it always like it seems to me. The entire book is a bad that there's less violence in the world and thought will that doesn't particularly interest me. I'm not gonNA come in twenty s to this book on that topic. Sal Get one of these other ones in and then the Knicks won the night. Mistakes me like it was based on the popularity of that. He extended that sort of fame ongoing a whole host of run.

So thank you to the people who contribute and help cover some expenses so we can have all these high tech gizmos and do what we're doing saying it's a long list of garden so not many people have dropped off in recent times site. That's good coding. Now I guy for that. That's right can I mention something just before we finish up? Not Finishing up we've got. We've barely started full really good because I thought you know the people get On good thanks We were talking about the effects of the Koran of ours. The lockdown and things and have you seen. Did you see in yesterday's news? I think was the Queensland Police Force used a helicopter to design and on three young guys having quite drink on the rooftop of a building and I will violating the proximity rules and everything else and apparently they'd been using some illegal drugs as well but I mean basically they would busted for NFL for trespassing on the roof of this building where they shouldn't have been and violating the proximity roles and the cops. Use The damn helicopter catch three young. They're a police dog involved in that as well there was a building. That's right. Can you imagine the cost of running a helicopter to catch three guys having a quiet drink? And maybe you know a joint or something on a rooftop in the Gulf coast and how many police were involved in that and of course they issued fines to each of these guys that in other the fallen for being too close to allow me. It's getting ridiculous but what I was getting to was there was a group of Orthodox Jewish people in nine think. Melvin busted for having a prayer meeting some con by the police. But it doesn't say this is from the shots at US applaud trevor. It says police warned. Mitten meeting at the same venue on Wednesday and issued several warnings to the organizer of the group to not hold gatherings. Police attended the location again on Thursday after being made aware of people heading to the address for meeting nowhere in the report. Does it say any fawns? Where issues and yet you know as we know people alive or strategy or getting fond for the most ridiculous raisins is that a case of the police trading warily because this was a minority religious group in. Victoria maybe they just It's certainly a sensible DNA. I had a chat with a call as all standing in line to get a coffee Through the week and I asked him about happy Z. Walls and said he's very busy And the the increase of that same is from domestic violence. That was predicted. So you so. He's basically indicating that that has panned out in fact yet in his opinion. This is just one minion. Domestic violence is also. He said he was busy. with coal outs from people dubbing on Ron But on the other hand it'd be a lot less traffic accidents. There'd be a lot of breaking enters because people I'm I guess maybe a workplace they're still carrying the other parts of the police force be quiet quiet because I'm saying one of well it's going to be interesting to see because pull you would be concerned the infringement of their civil liberties that we're very concerned that we have accepted tonight and I think Australians have gone. Well this looks pretty serious. We don't want to have a disaster will agree to some fairly draconian measures for the moment. But Yeah I think pay up to the APP whereas my question. Do you want to explain? What do you know about the APP So something orlands just recently is that it's only going to register contact with somebody within one point five. Mehta's for more than fifteen minutes. Yeah so doesn't track. You'll like high shouldn't is such it. Just identifies tonight. Yes whether you're in the vicinity of another fine not anytime to ping another divorce when it's within one point five meters and it's GonNa keep a record of that interaction for molen stain minutes. So that's basically someone standing next to WanNa try or a boss Bo. Someone you're sleeping with I think. Do you sleep with Your Phone Warren. And does your partners the phone? Not that's tonight. How does your phone? Now you're in bed with someone for goodness I taught which partner poll well is. I'm going to respond to the process. What I'm concerned that they're gonNA find out at each other. Well Lamont could be the end of your. That's what bombies dot worried about. He's he's against the. I think I know in New Zealand just endured as recommended up. Just a logbook destroyed Tan. Way Out anytime. If you're under lockdown like we are at the moment you should be able to identify people. You've spent fifteen minutes with sign because he can point admitted. Yeah I really other than the people in this house is. There's nobody so if you're at the shops getting some bread milk supplies you're not going to be close enough to anybody t trigger that APP anyway so jump fifteen minutes on August. I don't trust them. I think there's value government tribal lendings value in that. I couldn't get through pain and pipe burned. My memory of people I dealt with in the previous way saying look I am not in principle against the the the measures implemented by the government in terms of keeping us a pop. You know obviously this logic in that. What what what makes me angry? Is the cops going around finding people for the trivial things when really the cups are supposed to be serving the public? Now if if I was put in charge of the police force in the side I would be telling all his under may use some God damned some common sense and discretion warn people. Explain to them why they need to keep a distance instead of whipping out the phone book. You know so hastily I just. I don't think that's a good look for the police. I think the police would get a lot more public support if they even pretended that we're actually serving the public instead of discipline and punish being their mind sort of Montenegro. Look just pray. Read the comments. Murray in the rain said one point five meters bit specific for Bluetooth if it can go up to ten meters and if so what do people in apartments do or you could have your bedroom adjacent to people in the next unit and you'll find register so I think if you have fan have Corona Virus. Then you're GONNA apartment building by. Sigli the authorities who would have decided the people in the adjacent units as a matter of course his rival he headed so you might have through door handles all balustrades or whatever come into contact Either get tested. Whatever say. Can I admit to violating the public distancing? I didn't want to ask your opinion on that on the show Graham. I know I know but look. It's probably already captured on closed circuit. Tv Anyway. So just give me your opinion. Should I expect to receive a notice in the mile because I drive a flatmate to to the airport on Saturday and you know she was leaving the country probe on my Nigga getting my life and she was quite an honest person so spontaneously gave her a hug? And it's all captured on key didn't circuit TV at the airport. Of course of course they would. They would have my registration number of my car next week. Do you think I'll get a notice in the mile? Yeah you won't be on next step aside and you'll be knocking on the when this all blew up initially just in the very early stages all I took my mother for Dr and I. G LOVES FISH AND CHIPS SO I took it to San Guide and bought some fish and chips and I said look. We're not supposed to be outside unless we're exercising so what we'll do is we'll just sit in the car looking at it. The by eating fish and chips inside the car and between us in the by was some sort of titles and in those about four different groups of couples some mouth female some mouth. Some female female like is a very picturesque beautiful. Die and sure enough. The police came along to each is grapes and said just a warning not supposed to be doing this. Unless you're exercising. You should not be just sitting and fishing. What you're doing and I'm not GonNa Fall on you this talk but move on and we were just sitting in the car. So evidence cried jobs but it just felt very a nineteen eighty-four he wasn't very And people low you'll be accepting of that in the early dies of pain damage and thinking well not sure series always my this is necessary or whatever but I think people are going to start looking at it and guy hanging minute. You need to doll his back a bit. It's just too much. Be Interesting to see how people respond strands. Give Fair go if they think it's warranted but my sense that this to file things off alone out of this whole end me? Saga is the People's People's respect for authority and unquestioning respect for authority and rules. You know and that's what led to a lot of the world's problems lack the the Nazis that worked in concentration camps during the Nasi trials. Use the excuse always just following orders and people lots of fable by default just followed his and a happy to fall in dine question the intent of the rules. Don't try and understand what the rules are trying to achieve. It's just like I wanna be told is what you need to do and then bang not having to think about it. I'm just GONNA do it. And that's that's a dangerous situation two billion. I'm trying to remember the name of that famous experiment. That was dying sixty without doing. The electric shocks. Electric Chelsea was also the one where they had prisoners and prison guards and people appallingly in that situations and it was a goddess Danny Laptop instructing as people to administer the shocks would which was signed which will fight nightfall killing the subject and the person was screaming and yelling and saying stop. I take it anymore and the goal is saying you have to. You have to give them another shock. Okay thank but this is a situation that we find ourselves in. Now than such distancing won't playful I just not thinking about the intent of though is not not using their common sense just following a little. That's what I've been told. That song candidate Said Yep just finally we will finish up now. Did you go as deep throat that flew tracking so I signed up for the flu tracker in basically all been getting an email every Monday morning? Asking me whether I've got symptoms runny nose or cough or whatever and I've had the flu injection at trial and it shows you a graph which is basically the right of five year average of of people having flu symptoms in the previous five years compared to what they're getting down from flu trivia and the the incidents of flu like symptoms is cowardly Dan at like point two five percent whereas normally it's somewhere around saint and that's one of the things even yeah and one of the things that we are being so genetic inside careful and we are not interacting with people to assist ornery incidences of the flu Y Day on how compared to what they would be out of all. Let's Rod between fifteen hundred and three thousand Doai of the flu every year. That's about forty three. On average a week we've had seventy one deaths in a month and a half north two months from Kevin non-aid so if this lockdown proves that we can have the amount of deaths that we get through influenza. Should the government put us all into lockdown should the entire winter because it's kind side laws now but the whole thing about this on the lot front? Yes and that's what. A lot of people are struggling to understand the hearing Respected Journalists Site Staff. Lock you can't put a price on a lot which is just nonsense and I know you guys don't watch and I and I don't watch it anymore. That there was a discussion on this on Monday evening. And I just saw a short clip on a on a news article on the Internet Showing this woman who who is not what was she. What's her job? I forget now but she was saying. There are ways of measuring quality of life that comes from working and having an income and things like this and to basically arguing that some people are saying a decline in the quality of life caused by the lockdown which is perhaps greater than the decline in the quality of their life that they might have experience from catching cut nineteen. I mean well. I mean you'd have to spread that across the whole population of that question of balancing the pros and cons. And at the moment the Hull Society Saints the five based on one single metric in the half a full minutes as is been measured by one single metric. Now to draw an analogy. That's like saying you know. Trying to measure someone's fitness purely. Lehem any push outside ended to. Can you tell him about three can do good? But the whole point of this lockdown was the risk that a hospital system would be tidally Iran and yes Up to about two percent so we are prepared to accept deaths from carneval Iris. And we don't want a situation away. The hospitals will be totally overrun. People have but it's the number of bids. We maxed out at about two percent of curiosity. And that's not including the additional loss Russell but yeah but that was the you know. The strategy was developed to achieve that goal brought. And we've achieved that goal and now it seems like we're coming up with goals to justify the strategy. Well the problem is if you just a free for all for example then. Y- it's not going to go away and it will exponentially come back so that's the problem like it. We bought ourselves time to think about what we can do this on the suggesting just going back to. Yeah but we bought ourselves time to consider what we should do as a reason to measured sort of why forward accepting that I if we I've been up a little bit and it costs a handful of lauds. Let's I because this is going to happen side. We can't I think the politicians back themselves in the corner here. Because if thi- relax the Oesterreichische any social distancing rules and then there's a spot thy will a responsible for that. Well what do you think they got it right so far? I've got it right now. What what what would g file strong? Not Strong enough what? He Sang too slow to act initially. And now it being to slide taking the restrictions off Ron and so what restrictions should come off now in your opinion will off think we should be able to travel from side to side on the sense of shouting sideboards. Every state has essentially has the signs saturation of infection as the other sites from followers to draw two bar in this just as much kind of nineteen barbay series year in prison I would I would. I cannot cafes and restaurants and limit the number of people that could the establishments The Should be we should be time superbowl but without the crowds united we should. We should essentially Rules to stop that super spreading things wrong so Travel Spice. The distance between the people walked down house packed pine. I just started with the Caffeine presentable. With table service will one one whiter with rhinovirus can along shift enhancing nights to people. Could it's a race definitely but I mean I mean cafes are at the moment and you can go in order a Taiko on and there's no greater risk from standing at the counter insane have a flat white plays and that that you have with the white Yeah I just I think we should be taking more. The Sweden approach swayed turning into a catastrophe. Now is not will not swimming. It's not now it's not if you look at the data. Sweden's performing much better than the United States and the UK in Belgium the Netherlands in places where lockdown is very stringent. I thought the data was showing the that. They're having a terrible on Sweden. Not It's not. I'll send you the grass lineup. Okay and that's that's another thing that also to one out of this hope. Pandemic is people judging their opinions off and Doug Evidence and there's a there's a reluctance to look at the data. Mary says yes it is. What do you mean Mary? Yes what is what so sweet. And he's doing terrible or it's or storing well wrought. It's doing better than the US I use is a bed benchmark. I think he's what he's saying. Can I ask you guys in the future when the vaccine is only available having it if they want all have one do you get a influenza vaccination every yes I do but you? I'm Pretty Lazy but of Donald J having accidents no no. I'm not against vaccines. But I've just never had a flu vaccination should I? Don't get the flu for some reason. So I've never bothered me. You know if I if I was a person that did suffer from influenza. Of course I would get a vaccination but I just need to get some reason so lots of things that are not with the hell. It's probably only in recent after needs at. I have by slightly because I got an elderly mother living with me so for flu. Injection SAM IS. We'll get one missile in also just saw an end up giving one of China's to be sort of more than five easy. Our public didn't in one. I wonder how big a role the ex- extra hand washing hasn't is because I've I've always been a person who washes my hands quite frequently and I don't get a lot of these sorts of illnesses for some reason so I wonder if that is a lengthy We'll we all continue to wash our hands a lot. Maybe a robust constitution told me maybe Yemen or guys I reckon we've already have stain cooler today. So just reminder chick your APP I've the next few days for the on Velvet Glove and Zych Dyke special. The audio is that on Anzac die would get up at dawn.
