"Kellogg's diner in Brooklyn, New York is legendary and the owner of Kellogg's diner has decided enough is enough actually she's been pushing back for a while over these insane mandates and leaders elected officials telling people how to live their lives under the guise of welcome on our guest line.

I couldn't believe it with people trying to put tense out in the streets with karashi heaters. This whole thing has been a nightmare. So walk us through your story, Irene and tell us why you're challenging New York and tell us how these requirements have impacted Kellogg's diner in Brooklyn. So I first want to let everybody know that I'm not against of this vaccine or any vaccine that can save lives. But I don't want to be forced to take this vaccine or force anybody to take a vaccine. They don't want to put in their body. Now, these mandates, like you asked me, what have they done to me? The first man dates there was no protection put on us. So once these lockdowns were taken off. We started getting suit because we defaulted in our contracts. We couldn't afford all these big rents that we had or these mortgages that we had because we had no business. We were only doing delivery and takeout. We weren't doing the volume that we normally do on without a pandemic happening. Nowhere near it. We're even close to that.

Keeping Powell Over Treasury Is Better Than It Could've Been
"Jerome Powell's going back to the fed I am both relieved and not relieved, but it's better than what it could have been, Brian, but what do you think of the move? Yeah, well, it is better than what it could have been thrown palace. Led the fed this far. I think he's created inflation, but at least the fed is moving towards tapering, which means buying fewer bonds every month. They shouldn't be buying any, by the way. And then they will raise rates late next year. Early 2023 and so yes, I was amazed that he was reappointed because my feeling my feeling was that him talking about tapering Jerome Powell that is and Jerome Powell saying he wanted to raise rates. I thought that would get him canned. Raising rates certainly sent didn't do it. It surprised the market, too, and it had a minor sell off, not a big sell off, but it was it wanted easy money forever. Because investors do. They know that inflation is good for stocks. Everyone with their equity money and says, oh, sure, print more money. My stocks will go up. You know, Brian, when we were together in Atlanta, you explained to people, we have a 130% more money in the system than we did two years ago. And last of the same number of goods. I read an extended piece this week that the former national security adviser ambassador Robert O'Brien sent to me about we're just not producing what we produced two years ago because of COVID. And we have a 130% more money. Of course we're going to have inflation, and by the way, it's not 6%. It's double digits, according to this analyst. That's exactly right. We did the worst combination of policies that you could do for a market based system to create wealth in the past 24 months.

BLM Threatens 'Riots, Bloodshed' in NYC if Eric Adams Brings Back Police Unit
"You know what they're doing in New York City? You know what Black Lives Matter founders are threatening? The leaders of New York's Black Lives Matter movement threatened riot and bloodshed in the streets if the mayor elect in New York Eric Adams reverses the abolition of the NYPD's controversial anti crime units. Now this is as described in the New York Daily News, the liberal tabloid in New York. Eric Adams is a pro police guy. The new mayor of New York is a former police officer. And he is pro Law & Order. It's a small miracle that this guy got elected. Now, he's still a radical leftist, but coming from a law enforcement background at least he's pro police and pro law enforcement law enforcement. The cofounder of Black Lives Matter of greater New York said, if Eric Adams thinks that they're going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we are going to take to the streets again, there will be riots. There will be fire and there will be bloodshed. Because we believe in defending our people, shed the founder of Black Lives Matter New York. Um. Well, that sounds about right. Threatening mash violence if a new mayor who's black, by the way, doesn't obey your policy demands Black Lives Matter. Yeah, that's great. That sounds totally normal.

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis: The Infrastructure Bill Is 'Incredibly' Important for Aging Cities Like New York
"Right, let's listen to Nicole malli attack. This is the congresswoman from New York. Again, I've always liked her. So disappointed that she voted with 12 other Republicans in the House and rescued the Biden agenda as The Wall Street Journal editorial which I'm going to share with you points out. Listen to her comments to Bill hemmer and Dana perino this morning on Fox News. 19 Republican senators voted for it as well. But for those who did not, they just think this is a bad Bill. Why did it get your yes vote? Well, this bill, look, I read this bill, and it is covered to cover infrastructure. $350 billion is going to roads highways and bridges, which you would consider traditional infrastructure, and in the other 550 billion is for ports, airports, seaports, ferry systems, coastal resiliency projects, like the east or seawall that's so important to my district. Sewer systems, which is so incredibly important following Ida, the damage that took place in New York City, upgrading our subway signals to a communication based train control. We're still relying on pre World War II equipment in some subways. So for an aging city like New York City, this bill was incredibly important. And the reality is is that this is the type of investment that people actually pay taxes for those basic infrastructure needs that you expect from government, but have been neglected for decades. And as you reported earlier, I also believe that we significantly took away the leverage from the socialist squad. It is why AOC and the others voted against it because they knew that if the true infrastructure Bill passed, the spotlight would go onto their social spending bill that includes the IRS agents. It includes the Amnesty. It includes giveaways to those who are in the country illegally, the taxes, the vaccine mandates and penalties, all of that that we remain opposed to and we are going to fight tooth and nail with the moderate Democrats to

"new york city" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Shahana hanif on making history as New York City's first Muslim woman council member. By Sonia Mansour. On November 2nd, shahana hanif made history by becoming the first Muslim woman elected to the New York City council. The Bangladeshi American who ran on a progressive platform and was endorsed by representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the working families party won a seat in Brooklyn to make history in a city where more than 750,000 Muslims live. The city council is tasked with negotiating the city's budget with the mayor, monitoring city agencies, such as the Department of Education and the NYPD and having authority over zoning and how land is used. Hanif was also one of two South Asian selected to be elected to the city council for the first time, along with shakar Krishna, who won a seat representing a queen's district. This week's election saw a series of firsts for candidates of color in local and state races across the country. Michelle Wu became the first woman and person of color elected to be Boston's mayor. Pittsburgh and Kansas City elected their first black mayors Ed gainey and Tyrone Garner. Dearborn elected its first Muslim and Arab American mayor Abdullah hamud and Tanya Fernandez Anderson became the first Muslim elected to Boston city council. Even before hanif's city council victory, she'd earned a reputation for her grassroots work around housing, immigrant rights, language access, domestic violence and COVID relief. She still serving in council member Brad lander's office as director of organizing and community engagement, where she helped community members have direct impact on how to spend city dollars. Honeybees spoke to time via Zoom on Thursday about her historic victory, the importance of representation and her identity as a Bangladeshi woman with lupus navigating New York City. Time what had the last 48 hours been like for you? Haneef. I just feel really seen. I'm realizing how incredibly important it is for people to see representation and what it means that New York City has not had Muslim South Asian and specifically Bangladeshi representation on its city council. The excitement around our campaign probably also has to do with the hunger for a multi racial democracy. What does it mean that we haven't had South Asian or female Muslim representation on New York City's council? What does that reflect? It reflects a history that is deeply rooted in racism and xenophobia. On one hand I am surprised that in the city council's history, we haven't had anyone, but at the same time, if you look at the history of the United States, should we be this surprised?.

Who Is Vivek Ramaswamy, Author of 'Woke, Inc.'?
"Show. I've been looking forward to this one for quite some time. One of the most important books that has been authored in recent memory and it's all about kind of woke ism and corporate America and what we can do about it and it's a very interesting very articulate guest. The vague Rama Swami did I get that right? You pretty darn close, Charlie. Good to see you. All right, I'm in the zip code. Honor to have you on our show. You're doing a wonderful job introduce yourself first to our audience and then talk a little bit about your book and we'll go from there. Yeah, sure, just a brief introduction. I grew up was born and raised in Ohio, where actually I live today. My parents were both immigrants from India. I often jokingly asked my dad why he came halfway around the world to Southwest Ohio. And he said that, actually, it was the only place in the world where he could get a job in the United States to be near his older sister who was in Fort Wayne Indiana. And that, of course, beg the question of why she came to Fort Wayne Indiana and we joke around it's the only U.S. state with the word India containing. That gets a bit of my family background on how they came here on a joking note. More seriously, I ended up going to Harvard for college. I studied molecular biology. I was a nerdy guy in the lab the whole time. Ended up getting into BioTech investing after I graduated. Did that for 7 years from 2007 to 2014, spent three of those years at the same time in law school at Yale where I met my wife, probably the most productive thing that came out of it. She was in med school and lived next door to me. And when I came back to New York City, after I finished law school and having a fund job on the side, now it was just a fun job. I ended up having a gap in my schedule, took up stand up comedy for 6 months before I decided that that wasn't my calling and left my job to start a BioTech company. I led the company as CEO for 7 years and during that time we got a number of medicines developed. The one I'm probably most proud of is a new drug to treat prostate cancer. But I stepped down from my job as CEO, this January. And you know, thankfully, the company runs well today. It's multi-billion dollar business, but I stepped down as CEO to work on what I thought was a different kind of cancer. Not a biological cancer. But a cultural cancer that I thought threatened to kill the dream that allowed me to achieve everything I ever had in my life as a first generation American. And that was the new orthodoxy. Well, I guess we could call the new woke orthodoxy that had really taken control of one elite institution after another. And though I wasn't born into a lead America, I had lived it for the last 15 years. And I felt compelled to not only tell my story, but to reveal the problem that I saw, which I viewed as a defining scam of our

"Those include enhanced child care services and a firm but just approach to violent crime, which has been edging up. The timing would certainly be right, given an ongoing out migration from the San Francisco Bay Area and a historic dip in rents in New York City. Now this is the thing that I think gets me most excited is this competition between cities. I can testify firsthand to the fall of San Francisco, which has been widely publicized. My wife and I are San Francisco refugees from a few years ago. What's more, I believe firmly that crypto has broken on some pretty fundamental level the mythology that the only place that technology innovation comes from is Silicon Valley. Not only has Silicon Valley not owned crypto as much as it has a role now, it was actually kind of late to the party, especially based on what you'd expect. Right now, San Francisco isn't really even in the conversation about where America's first Bitcoin city is going to be. You see bitcoiners taking up stock in places like Austin, clearly New York is contending for this and has a great leg up just based on their existing financial base. And then, of course, there's Miami. Miami and its mayor Francis Suarez have been making moves for a couple of years now. Around primary night in June, Eric Adams even bantered a little bit with Suarez, saying Miami, you had your run, or bringing our businesses back. But don't count mayor Suarez out just yet. Suarez also won his reelection campaign as expected. And when yesterday pumped tweeted out, it is time. Who's going to be the first American politician to accept their salary in Bitcoin? Suarez responded, I'm going to take my next paycheck 100% in Bitcoin. Problem solved..

"New York has also obviously been one of the more aggressive states in terms of enforcement actions. The New York attorney general had a settlement earlier in the year with tether and just last month ordered Celsius and nexo to shut down while investigating three other firms. Now law enforcement isn't necessarily a bad thing, but frankly, all of this adds up to New York, the center of the traditional finance world, not being particularly hospitable for this new area of finance. It is understandable then that when the New York mayoral race started, many in crypto were excited about the possibilities, in particular, the possibilities for an Andrew Yang victory. Andrew Yang has long been an outspoken proponent of Bitcoin, including during his presidential run. In February, he tweeted, as mayor of New York City, the world's financial capital, I would invest in making the city a hub for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Now it pretty quickly became clear that this race wasn't Yang's to win. He simply couldn't get support and his subsequently gone on to found a new third party called forward. For what it's worth, crypto and crypto adoption is a major pillar and platform of the forward party. However, as so often happens in politics, some of the better ideas of the vanquished get adopted into the victors platform. And while the cynical take is that that's just to consolidate followers, the more optimistic slant is that sometimes even politicians recognize that other people have good ideas, and they want to make them their own. In either case, in June, then front running candidate for the democratic nomination and former cop Eric Adams mentioned Bitcoin as well. On the eve of the democratic primary, he said I'm going to promise you in one year, you're going to see a different city. We're going to become the center of life science, the center of cybersecurity. The center of self-driving cars, drones, the center of bitcoins. So what was driving that? Well, on the one hand, you have to think, of course, there was a goal to unite the party, including extending an invitation to the Yankees, right? This is a classic political move. There were also a couple notable crypto donors on Adam's roster, including Brock pierce. What's more from a campaign perspective, Adams had been running on a promise to not only fight crime but to promote economic prosperity. Coincidence columnist David Morris wrote about this a few weeks later. In short, Adam seems to be more focused on well paying jobs in a vital economy than on changes to the status quo of financial regulation. In many ways, this is hugely bullish for the sector, a sign that crypto is stealing some limelight from Silicon Valley as acidic Doc for innovation and growth. And New Yorkers were eager for that message thanks to an unemployment rate of 10.9% in May, far above the national rate of 5.9%. That's probably thanks above all to the loss of tourism, which is a huge driver of the New York economy during the coronavirus pandemic. It's also a meaningful signal locally given the 2019 progressive backlash against plans to build an Amazon headquarters in the borough of queens, which had its justifications, but was seen by some as anti jobs. Atoms is more of a centrist than those anti Amazon activists, and is aimed mostly at appealing to blue collar New Yorkers. Much of his platform focuses on small business, but the nod to tech is part of that larger promise of more and better jobs. Anyone who listens to this show regularly will know my thoughts on Bitcoin and economic prosperity. And so I was thrilled when on July 6th Eric Adams was officially named the New York mayor candidate for the Democrats, which effectively mean that he was named New York mayor. However, that wasn't it for mayoral candidates in New York City talking about crypto..

Podcast i am your host. Sonia go quite a today. We are so delighted to welcome democratic candidate for new york. City council felicia saying felicia thing is a first generation american whose parents immigrated to this country from india and guyana respectively and she has a lifelong resident of ozone park. Felicia is a proud product of the new york city public schools and is running to bring equity and justice to council district thirty two in a historic campaign whereby six asian american candidates including felicia have one in the city council primary virtually ensuring that. New york's next city council would not only be the most diverse and the city's history but for the first time ever women will hold. The majority felicia is focused upon giving a voice to thousands of working class families. Living in district thirty two and if elected she is intent upon removing barriers which are keeping them from thriving which includes a focus on education climate change transportation housing and healthcare to name a few felicia. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. I'm really excited to be here while we are so excited to welcome you. And for those new yorkers or even global listeners who may not be familiar with felicia. You are a lifelong resident of ozone park. An educator and the daughter of to work in class emigrants the first and enter family to not only graduate from high school but also the first to earn collegiate degrees. And you dad is a taxi driver from punjab india. Your mom is a school bus matron from guyana and you are running in a historic campaign to represent district not to on the new york city council. What's really notable about this election for thirty cocco is that for the first time in the city's history just shocking to believe with a historic six asian american candidates one in the city council primary. And so there's no question that the next city council is poised to be the most diverse and history-making as women will hold the first majority ever and that is really striking but perhaps with even more striking is what is missing from the current city council. Which you hope to change. And i will quote you directly from a previous interview quote. There is no south. Asian zero zero south asian elected officials in new york city council. Get or community of district thirty two and neighboring communities have a large population of south asian. So i wanna pause there a moment. Because i have to say that makes her candidacy all the more exciting and so long overdue. What other thoughts or comments you have on that and how has been. The daughter of emigrants to this country informed your perspective as a human being an educator. A lifelong resident of district thirty two and now a candidate for city council will i. I think that what we saw in the primary was absolutely revolutionary. It was amazing to see so many asians within the diaspora winder elections and represents their asian communities. Which is so monumentous for this time. It's twenty twenty one and the fact that in twenty twenty one we finally have a new city council demographic that represents the city is really something that is both alarming and beautiful at the same time and it tells you just right there how difficult it is for women to run for office for women of color to run for office and win it takes so much more and being daughter of immigrants and being someone who's coming from a working class background south asian backgrounds. Who's a teacher. Our communities across the city especially here in the thirty second city council district are becoming more and more diverse. in fact we're the majority not only. Do we have majority democrats in my city council district. We also have majority of communities of color in so because we're the majority. It's kind of like. Hey we're the majority let's act like it. Let's actually make sure we're building political power and seeking the representation. We have a right to and that's the work that i'm doing running for office and having one my primary which is really exciting but the next feet is currently right now in the most competitive general election at least in queens or a near city as repegging pegging this race to be. Because i'm running in the last. Republican district includes while absolutely you know. Your platform focuses upon centering education equity and environmental justice and in restrict for this interview. I was deeply impressed with how uniquely qualified you are for this moment and the needs of district thirty two and much of that comes from your jacket long experience as an educator which you call quote the greatest honor of your life and i want to quote your because this background. It's really informed you as a candidate and you state quote. It taught me that children no matter where they go to school or where they come from a what. Their circumstances are deserve a fully funded education with the resources that they need to be successful in this world. And you realize that. for all. New yorkers your vocation or work should it cost people their lives or their livelihood but he does for most working class communities it does for people who don't qualify for stimulus checks and are undocumented at it does for so many other marginalized groups and most notable you call out the fact that what's really missing from city council or people would not just advocate and talk about issues but actually experienced them an experienced systems. That don't have never worked for people and much of that is actually paraphrased from quotes by you and other interviews as you aptly point out those are the people who know exactly what to change about our systems. And that's why you are running and so can you offer more about this perspective and your campaign. Yeah you know. I know the life of living paycheck to paycheck and with unstable employment and mounting debt. And really what it's taught us and my family. My neighbors is that are mere city. Systems are very are built in a really complex way. There's so much red tape. There's so much waiting and waiting and waiting. You know you do the right thing as a working class person. You pay your bills. You follow the law. You take out the trash when you're supposed to you recycle. You do all the things of what it needs to be community member. You invest in homes or. Maybe you're a renter. You try your best to pay rent on time and full and the city systems doesn't have anything to do with with being able to give you some sort of ease as a new yorker one of the systems that i think is really designed to fail was our medallion. Crisis is our medallion system which has caused a crisis. We're seeing right now on the ground. Where hundreds of thousands of taxi drivers are protesting outside chamber street and murray demanding. That the mayor at city guarantee to his current plan for supposed- debt relief. And this is something that the city was negligent in doing. And they are for the predatory lending that has caused sony taxi drivers to.

"That's a perfect segue. There's many advocates experts legislators who love the local all ninety seven. They have some of these questions that i just asked about. You know what about the smaller buildings and you know how do you get rid to ensure compliance that that you don't even you know as you said that you get two zero finds being paid because either. That's not an option or on a resume but the next frontier seems to be this bill and the city council. I think it's twenty three seventeen speaker. The city council just said he favors it banning gas hookups in new development where the administration so the mayor has has said going back that he thinks it makes sense to have a date certain after which there would be only after which we wouldn't use fossil fuels in our building. So we're broadly supportive of this. We really look forward to to working with the city council to get this done. I think if you look at the the state and the federal level and you look at the direction. The industry is going. I think everybody agrees that the buildings of the future or ones that. Don't rely on fossil fuels. i think that No new york city really is poised to be a leader in developing and building. These new buildings and and these aren't pie in the sky. Things we see buildings right now being built in the five boroughs that don't rely on on fossil fuel combustion And and it's really exciting. I think i think that's definitely the direction we should be going. And and the mayor mayor supports putting an end date. After which we wouldn't we wouldn't have fossil fuel use in large buildings particularly for you know for for the the heating and cooling systems..

"This week. Here's what he said. I think the giants offensively one of the issues. You know they drafted this. Tony number one He's supposed to be there slot. The tight end isn't playing. They've got to get something. That's a little easier for daniel jones On the inside and unless they get that it's it's going to be problematic because you have to have a few things where the ball can get out quickly and those inside. Receivers are usually Part of the keys to that exclusive interview and kgan there. Thanks for that keyshawn however fair. Unfair adam it is to judge daniel jones in this situation. That is exactly what the giants this season. So what is the future for jones in this giants football team. They lose tonight. Laura if they lose the giants will continue to stand by dangle jones but the questions will continue to multiply just the way that the football world works right now but everybody in the giants organization from the day that they picked him been behind him and they've never wavered in their support from this team falls to own tweet. Tonight and daniel jones falls to all six and primetime games. Right now carries a owned five record into this team tonight. Then you could just imagine the questions that are going to come in new york for ten days coming off another loss. When of lost their opening game at home against denver a thursday night game against washington team has not lost to before and as we said at the top of the show. The team that loses tonight whichever quarterback it is that quarterback that team. They're going to face more questions for ten days about starting until. Yeah adam you mentioned off the top of the show does cam newton end up landing somewhere depending on how these quarterbacks perform tonight great stuff from adam dan what do you think of where this giants offenses. What's the definition of insanity doing the same thing over again regardless of the outcome. that's the giants offense. Oh good giants had the most antiquated in worst offensive scheme in the nfl. I love watching. I hate watching the giants on tape three things that bothered me the most about their offense. There's no wi- in what there's no why we're doing things. What are we doing. I don't know just throwing things against the wall and hopefully they work. My second thing is and you just heard coats. Hartselle say they've got to find things that are easier. There is not a single moment on the giants state when something happens and i point. That player had success because of the coach that the player you look at it and go. The coach really helped him have success. In that moment it doesn't show up on their take. And then there's never a moment when daniel jones is going to be daniel. Jones giants fans watched it tonight. Washington team watched it tonight. Jobs be six six yards behind the center every play. He can be six yards behind the center every play. They don't move him behind a be gap. They don't move him outside the pocket. He's at the same spot all the time. We've all heard the saying there's coaches who put their players in positions to be successful. The giants have coaches who put their players in position. That's it they just lined up. Then it's up to them to go execute the oh do i need my time to use so you can keep going. Go ahead mike. This this is not the time. I know i know. Bro i feel i you. You saw me talking about the titans defense the other day. I just don't understand this stuff just unexplainable. Here's the deal with the new york giants. Though this was a football team defensive front they have a field day. Yeah they are about a half an absolute field day and a part of this is because we know that this offensive land is pores but but the big part of it is what day jess explained jason garrett will not be created. He won't move this pocket. He won't have jet sweep motion. He won't run any screens to slow these guys down. That's going piddly ears back with you. Barkley up all people to try to get him in space so he can create and make poised. I'm saying he won't because he ain't been that. I was with jason garrett. He's been blessed with to have a lot of players a lot of talent and i'm not saying he's incompetent as offense coordinator. He does some nice things. But i don't think he realizes how much he needs to help his quarterback he keeps thinking that at some point. Figure it out in. Come in if you don't let this do be at leading one. You got to look at the wide receiver position in tiny and spot inside part. Jason gear likes to do offensively. Isn't quite there for them. And if you don't have what you need your principles go right out the window and i don't think he has any assets that you figure shepherd would be the guide here it hasn't been but inside inside slide him inside and let him go to work because in short yard situations ball has come out quick. You can't have. Danny jones dropped back in the balls being thrown in the two other people things that are to come out much faster. You know that dan ingram. He's he hasn't been at the party. He's hurt so he's not there. So when you look at it saint parkway it's coming back slowly but surely and when you're at quarterback and you don't have a consistent running game behind you and you don't. Sam had to get christian. Mccaffrey look how that helped him out last week. He needs those types of things. Jayson geared is going to be run kit. Run run past punt. That's just we it stinks. I mean it stink. I do think golladay might end up being a little bit better than what he looked like. we want. let's do one more thing before we go because we have to pick this game and listen. It's kind of obvious that some of us are leaning toward washington. You'll see it on your screen here in just a moment because marcus spears is picking the washington football team. Dan orlovsky is picking the washington football team. Laura rutledge is picking the washington. Football team by keyshawn is going with the giant trimble. I'm came what are you got a twenty seven seventeen and how y'all if the giants scored twenty seven on the washington defense rizla let just herber carbon thirteen for sixteen on third down and then on top of that. Top at twelve first downs. All i need down your time to turn your game day scores. Twenty seven hour to any nick extending.

"The football. Don't allow him to be. The athlete looked at the excitement behind. Sale heinecke is the fact that he can get outside of the pocket and create and he can do things on the move like we see a lot of other quarterbacks do that's when east most effective so this new york giants defense needs to play really vanilla to be honest with you. This defensive line these to be on the same page. They need to make sure that this find out if he can beat you. That way okay. Because here's the deal with tele heineke. He's played but he's played win. Quarterbacks have went down so a week of prep preparation was not geared towards his skill set and his talent. And i look as a defensive guy. dan and key of heard me say this to l. boogie. It is so difficult to get ready for a second string quarterback. That's athletic when when something like that happens in the game it really does catch your defense of gourd. You don't know what to expect but now that the the giants have had a week of preparation and they understand how athletic taylor can be outside of the pocket. That is the thing that i think should be first and foremost by gram. The defensive coordinator is the make. Sure this got if if they beat us is going to be. Because tele heineke took five-step drops three step drops. It was able to deliver the ball to maclaurin. He was able to deliver the ball to logan. Thomas in the run game got us. Don't allow this dude to get out here and run around and make improvisational plays. Because that's the quickest way to your defeat you already got your hands full with his washington football team defense. Well it's thursday and we disagree. Because i think the giants she needed try to confuse taylor heineke one hundred thirty six passes in his career and i think one of their advantages is to try to change the picture on them to try to show him something. One play or one snap and put it up okay. So thirty. Eight against teddy bridgewater played thousands of snaps that little target represents a safeties in the middle. That you can't see onscreen four defensive. I'm at the line of scrimmage aren't the broncos earner six men protection five guys up front and tailback when you put those guys up. In the line of scrimmage with the defensive and the two linebackers markets you notice you got to go one on one now now. I'm gonna take that linebacker safety. He's up in the line the snap. I'm gonna pop him outside giving you a little bit different. Look at the line of scrimmage now the corner at the bottom of screen he's gonna roll hatfield safety. A top squats in the middle linebacker becomes at tampa to run through guy that sake that was the target. He's rolled over the top. The top of the screen. Now teddy bridgewater is look into no fit like. Oh i want to throw that out route. It was single high. But you the picture. And it's too high. I can throw it there with all those one on ones. Here comes the internal pressure. I gotta snap my is back to number three and find a completion but guess what it's thirty eight you confuse me. And i'm a blink late now you get off the field. I think the more that they can show a picture of. Hey weren't single. I defense now. We spin at the too high over in too high and we spend on one i again. Teddy bridgewater was just not confused but hesitated for a second there. And he's played thousands of snaps. Taylor heineke strong one hundred thirty six passes if the giants want to win this game. It's gotta be because their defense and patrick graham. Their defensive coordinator creates some confusion. And maybe gets turnover or maybe gets the quarterback to hold for a second and that rush in mark is my question for. You is as a defensive lineman when you're doing that kind of confusion base defense and you don't wanna let the quarterback out of the pocket. What's the number one thing you guys have to do to make sure that doesn't happen. Yeah well first of all you are exactly right about the confusion part Don't get till you you tell you defense vans don't get hired into quarterback i don't allow this guy to duck under you if we don't have interior pressure where he can skate out and make a play downfield because to your point the this why where why. I went where i win. Once a quarterback breaks contain there is no longer a disguise. Is back your phone mock point so i wanna live in the area where taylor heineke has to die diagnosed and standing in the middle of all of that traffic so look y'all hear me say it. All the time to things can be true. Yes absolutely disguise him. But don't disguise yourself don't let this do out of the pocket because that's where his comfort zone see your point be on the line and on the back here. Let's confuse him. Don't allow them to play back. Your football all right so. Dan is now writing down your note that you just said there we can still that also apparently wanting to steal kimberly martin's look.

As we talk about the bills he's looking for a bounceback game after struggling in week one against the steelers ranking near the bottom of the league and vote. Completion percentage in yards per attempt. Espn's football power index. Expect this to be close window given buffalo the slight edge favoring them by fifty point two percent got back close really close. Let's focus on the bill side of this matchup. How confident are you in josh allen. Moving forward confident in moving forward that he will continue to get better. But i'm not one of those guys. That is a prisoner at the moment based on last year's mvp satistics and things of that nature. A lot of guys are now. Pittsburgh rolled in about well he. He struggled last week against pittsburgh. Pittsburgh will make most people struggle. That's just what they do. Defensively they confuse you there sound. They play a certain style. You know what you're gonna get. I'm expecting josh sal. Impossibly bounced back. But i am not going to be one of those guys jumping on the table week after week. Thinking that okay. We're gonna see the same consisting guy that we saw a year ago because it was a lot of inconsistencies prior to last year. Okay marcus when you watch this game at one eastern on sunday. Dan's getting revved up over. There what is something that is built. Offense could do right away to make this thing roll little bit more like it was last season. Yeah you gotta you gotta take the underneath. If you josh allen and then you gotta hit the big play when this available. Listen this he could play at a high level. I believe he's gonna play at a high level but he has sort of a point. We start talking about complacency. That's what the bills have to boy. You see here display. He hits three times he doesn't want to do it and then he just i'm going to get it underneath. Do it faster. Give you a guy time to get it done. And then when these opportunities present themselves you gotta hit him. He hit most of them last year. He hit a majority of them to step on. But it may you will. Sanders is behind.

Los angeles chargers and their superstar quarterback justin herbert. Meanwhile tonight saquon barkley listed as questionable but the expectation is that he will play could be a similar workflow sunday when he opened the season against denver with ten carries wasn't involved a whole lot. They wanna be careful with him. Coming off the twenty yale but he is expected to be out there. Barring any sort of setback. Evan ingram also out for the new york giants and the washington.

In fact he broke down the huddle on tuesday. And when i asked him. What did you tell the teammates he was like. I probably can't repeat that. But i'll just say that i want these guys fired up because this is prime time. This is a divisional opponent. And it's the giants. Let's go right now. You gotta understand. Taylor heinecke is. He's a guy who's told me i've been out of my whole life. People tell me. I'm too short too small. I don't have a good enough arm. But i like proving people wrong. I like proving people who believe in me right now. One of those people is head coach. Ron rivera but all he wants to see taylor heineke do. Tonight is just control. The float. don't do anything extra. Don't think you have to make every play just made place smart because we know you're a gamer. and laura. These guys believe in him. When i was on the phone with taylor heineke. His teammates were yelling his name in the background and he laughed at me said yeah. They got some confidence in me. But i just want to show them that. I was thrown into the fire last year in the playoffs and tonight that the backup quarterback can move the ball. Downfield a little bit kimberly. Try to stay dry in there. We'll have you later on in the show as well to update us on the weather and much more from the giants perspective. Thank you so much for being with us and heineke may be to backup. But he's actually played well compared to the rest of washington's quarterback since the start last season look at this volleys only played in three games including his playoff start. Heineke has posted a higher. Qbr better touchdown. Interception ratio had averaged a full yard more for passage compared to washington's other four quarterback over the last year. Some of that about who. You're comparing him to but still maybe a good sign dan. Is there really a difference with heineke at quarterback bombing do the to my is what did with the color. Oh beautiful right on. Maybe you would talk lateral move fits heineke. I don't think there's going to be a significant drop off to stand out one. The athleticism heinecke is going to be able to run around and make some plays. He's super aggressive. Mindset guy so he's going to push the ball downfield trying to create some stuffers often that is very similar to the style of play that ryan fitzpatrick has always been about right run around create kind of the backyard. Football field logs to throw the ball to logan. Thomas specifically down in the red zone is a great level of trust there. Two things that i do wanna see. Stand out for this offense tonight. Remember that tori. Terry mclaren plays on your football team last week. Only four targets. You caught all right. So let's throw the ball to terry mclaren more number two. I want to see scott turn of the play car for the washington football team. Use their tailback. Tony gibson the same way. He used christian mccaffrey. I'm not saying that the same player but gives you gotta have more than three catches He's he's that kind of dynamic weapon. I wanna see double the catches for him. So there will be a good performance by the quarterback. Get the ball the mclaren more and utilize tonio gifts in the past game more actually spoken to ron rivera multiple times recently on your radio show. What is he told you that you think plays into tonight. Well a little bit of it is what dan is saying ryan. Fitzpatrick is what they like. It quarterback because he believes in a certain style in which he wants to play ryan's not their heineke is like dan said kind of the same guy right the differences. He won't turn the ball over as of right now much like fits so what you want to do. Is you wanna play strong defense. You wanna try to touch. The ball is what you can in the run game. But you don't want to give the ball to the other team and the receivers have got to buy in. Which i believe they have. Because they're not gonna get touch. Okay mentioned four catches not knowing what he's not going to get football in the style in which they wanna play. And i think that ron rivera has told us many times that he believes that is a recipe for success in the national football. You don't have to have aaron rodgers to win super bowl. You do not have to. Have tom brady to win a super bowl. It's good. it's a luxury but as long as that quarterback in that style does what he's asking him to do you can get there and take care of business. I think he just put washington in the super bowl. I didn't do that. Sorry i'm just saying what. He told me rugby defensive side from the giants perspective. Marcus when you think about a new quarterback in there even though what he's had some experience what should the giants due to approach this from their side. One of the key points to keep taylor heineken. pocket force him to beat you about throwing.

"Are prioritizing. That process will are there. Is there a level of government is it. congressional state. legislative is a city council. Is there a particular level of government where the district have been most problematic to you. Is it sort of a holistic. look at it. Are there specific immigrant communities that have been the most sort of egregiously hurt in these districts that you could point to. You know what i would. I would point to the twenty ten districts that were drawn And look at the state districts right state senate. Some assembly districts were drawn like premature dividing up communities. You know if you look at sunset park right where there was a huge. There was a growing asian population and in the eastern part of sunset park Which connects with other parts. You can also see that. That neighborhood was cut up between four. Different assembly districts. Right the same thing in the senate districts. Were you see them kind of like chris. Coss people's backyards And these weird cheap district's taking to ensure that you know at the time. The people who are drawing these in the republicans were republicans in the senate and they wanted to maintain control. but what they didn't plan for was appellation. Growth in people moving in the state. So i think that that is what has provided for the senate districts the flip in a lot of these different places. So you know we don't want this to. We want the process to be fair from the onset so that we actually have districts that don't need population growth Or people moving into different. Parts of the state to really prioritize community needs for having communities pick their districts that then allow them to pick their elected officials as opposed to elected officials. Picking the district's that they want I think is the priority for us. Yeah the new york state. Senate districts are notoriously gerrymandered. And we're done so in that agreement to to at least help the state senate republicans keep keep a majority which they did for much of the last decade until recently as you noted So there's probably a lot of potential for those state senate district should be redrawn. That'll be. That'll be very interesting. In the assembly districts were redrawn to maximize democratic advantages. Although you know those were pretty significant in the assembly already that'll be. That'll be very interesting to watch. And of course the city council and the congressional districts as well there's some real gerrymandering of some of those in new york city.

"Something you don't like try and come up with like a genuine regulatory framework that balances what you think that the public's interests are one aspect of that should be trying to respect our data rights as human beings. Because right now our data is being sold resold for hundreds of billions of dollars a year and cost is not just economic. It's actually in human agency. it's in public trusts. Were getting packaged ourselves and sold to various advertisers in ways that also undermine the public good and our government has been completely absent on this. I think california's privacy. Laws are some of the best in the country that the newest rule is for there to actually be a dedicated privacy protection agency in california. It's almost like some kind of data cops It makes me very happy. I hope they get a really cool uniform and schedule but other states should be following suit and the feds should be following suit. California actually is ahead of the urban and what about with respect to our politics. How do you think we could improve a system. That is now. It's hard to characterize how Ramshackle it appears first of all the fact that we can't seem to hold an election that the country can trust the outcome of. How do we even approach a a national conversation about improving our politics entered and the the actual the infrastructure that allows us to deliver political results. Going forward sam. I'm so glad you asked this. Because i actually worked on a book on this topic. That's gonna come out in the league summer. Who knows but i am not. I'll i'll send you the manuscript because it's been on my mind but i'll let you listeners. Know what one of the key takeaways is which is ranked choice voting We need to get rank. Choice voting adopted around the country because it will help reduce polarization. It will free legislators up from the fear of being primary which right now is guidance. And very extreme decisions right now over. Eighty percents of elections are predetermined in terms of whether it's going to be democratic or republican. And so most voters don't actually have a genuine choice in their representations if you've ranked choice voting it decreases as negative campaigning. It gets rid of the spoiler effects so low and can be accused of wasting your vote. Adra maybe may be explain how the ranked choice voting works. Could i think many people won't be familiar with the logic of it. Oh yeah. I'm sorry. I got so excited. You know york barrel racist rank choice voting for the first i do so. This is very relevant. But the way right choice. Voting works is that the winner has to get over fifty percent of people's votes which use that as a starting point and the second thing is that you can rank more than one candidate as some that. You'd like to see win so use the mayoral race as an example. Let's say there are seven candidates. You can rank Me first and then scott stringer a second and in my while third and then what happens is when they count all of our votes if no one gets up to fifty point one percent at the top line then they get rid of the bottom most candidate and then they reassigned that candidate's votes based upon that person's second choice or the that entities. You know second choice votes. So that person's votes have reassigned and you repeat the process over and over again until someone gets past fifty point one percent so in this way you can actually both whoever want as your first choice and have no fear that it's somehow we're going to result in someone. You detest winning because you can just rank your second choice first and then if you're a person ends up one of the bottom performers devos slow through your second choice right wishes a huge deal because the the ralph nader effect is a problem and To be able to completely circumvent that issue of there being a spoiler wait a vote would Change a lot. You know if nothing else changed. And here's the wild thing. Is that in twenty five states around the country you can actually activate a referendum ranked voting simply through a ballot initiative that requires a number of signatures and in some states. It's actually a relatively modest number of signatures to states have already adopted. Rank choice voting and open primaries in those two states are main in alaska there. three states. That have valid initiatives where all it takes animated citizens and a bunch of signatures and you could actually transform democracy for the better. It's very exciting that this is something that has enormous potential to decrease the polarization. That is making us less less functional. Well andrew. I will let you go. I wish you a swift recovery from covid and a thoroughly successful campaign. And i look forward to on the other side of a vaccine being in a crowded restaurant with you when you were mayor of the city of new york. It's a date i will host you.

"And there's also something called supportive housing where you actually have some of those services building and so you can have social workers or addiction counselors actually even a staffing some of these centers so that there are some countermeasures in place. The goal would not frankly beat a turn these hotels into shelters and the way that would be a concentration of of some of the issues that shelters right now face it would be so that there's a whole mix of families and people will have have found that actually to be away for folks who are struggling to have a social context and be in better position to improve right right so what about crime in the city. What's happening there. And there's a spike in many cities of fifty percent or so in the last ten months it's higher here unfortunately and also their rates owed resolution. Which is that the perpetrator. It's been going down. That to me is a very nasty combination. You want the rates of resolution to be going up or staying constant worst case so we need to invest resources in trying to stem the rise and also catch perpetrators one of the things that i always have this working theory on. Is that if there are. Let's say ten robberies that might not be ten robbers be like two robbers who are going around. You know robbing multiple. So when when i see these rises and the fact that many of the crimes have been resolved. I think to myself well. There are some very bad actors who are a physician to strike again and that that to me has to be where you focus your resources is that that a relatively small number of people being apprehended could end up being a significant factor in some of these rates. I'm going to tell a dumb story but like it was this. Is this an experience i had. I ride my bike around new york city a lot not a motorbike like a normal. I've not you're campaigning on harley. I of eighties hero to be reading motorcycle so being safety conscious i bought a blinker to attach to my to my bike because my blaker run out of juice and i was kind of leading decided by anyone even though there was a way to recharge the original and So i bought this liquor very nice very shiny and i put it on my bike and it was actually taken off my bike with like a bike. Lock did and my bike was locked so it was a little bit difficult to just take but someone saw the blaker inside since to take off my bike. That was the kind of thing that i don't think necessarily would have happened in another time in. New york's history. I think right now is like a time when people are feeling kind of desperate and so this is something as dumb as like a on a bike like they might take it now. They may not have before. Obviously the topic of law and order brings us up against issues of Social justice here that that are both understandable. And i i also think are deeply misconstrued by many people you know on both the right and left but i do think we're you know post george floyd so now coming on. I don't know what be nine months or so we're living through a the key aftershocks of a kind of moral panic around policing violence issues of lingering. Racism notions of of equality in this space. That don't actually make sense. When you're talking about the demographics of crime a belief that in particular the black community is is over policed whereas you ask members of the black community living in the most crime ridden neighborhoods. That's certainly not their perception in arguably their over police with respect to crime and underpoliced with respect to serious crime and in the starkest case you have the problem of murderers just going free crimes being unsolved the worst kinds of crimes being unsolved disproportionately in certain neighborhoods and yet any is seemingly rational approach to fighting this sort of crime directing cops preferentially into places where more of the crime happens can be spun as as racist or you know otherwise optically horrific sort of anytime you want you know and people are so sensitive to this that i think we're we're right to fear that in many cities i don't know if new york is an example but in many cities. There's something like a ferguson effect. That has happened here. which is you know. We're cops kinda stop policing in areas where the inconvenient youtube video leads to the reputational destruction of of the cops involved or the police force. That's supposed to be solving crime in in these neighborhoods so it's a hard problem to solve and not just from a pr. Point of view whatever's rational to do in terms of fighting crime and improving people's lives. And as you know. Michael bloomberg had his own adventures with stop and frisk. How do you view solving this problem or ramming through it or ignoring it. What is the approach to. Fighting a resurgence in crime in new york in a way that actually fights it as efficiently and as sanely as possible. We'll nypd is had a number of real issues. That predated george floyd in summer. There was a gentleman named eric garner who was publicly choked and lost his life. And i don't know if you remember. This was at a number of years ago but that there were nba players wearing. I can't breathe a number of years ago forever. Earner that was new york like the nypd spends hundreds of millions of dollars year settling civil lawsuits against it which i take as buried very terrible data point on so many levels one because if you can imagine city of new york spending hundreds of millions on anything like the last thing we'd want to spend it is unsettling lawsuits against cops. Who done something wrong. That the second thing is that if you're losing a couple of hundred million dollars for the lawsuits a year that probably means that level of harm might even be a multiple of that. Because a lot of times i'm share. No one's actually getting sued put four something that they're doing wrong so there is a genuine cultural problem where where then when. Tv is concerned that i think extends to someone on all of the officers from what when i talked to officers on the street. Some of them. Frankly seemed like exactly the kind of people that want to lead singer community. I'm when i was in the bronx. There was a team with a latina woman in a black out of petroleum. Like you know. Like i need you feel like okay. These are people actually represent this community. There has to be an ability to focus on lowering rates of violent crime and bringing up resolution rates in simultaneously not encouraging hundreds of millions of dollars of.

They're they've been mass produced at this point so andrew you are running for office of mayor in what is very likely the most important city on earth. I love the idea of you. Being mayor of new york. Let me just get my biases on the table and It's amazing to consider new york being a kind of laboratory to experiment. In in how we reboot society at this point that it seems like so many things are up for review an interest how we function collectively and the idea that someone with your Creative and Modern take on things could be steering. The fairly large ship of of new york. City is just. It's amazing to consider so some wishing the best of luck brother. Well as i do. Sam like i do think that this is like a continuation of the arc that frankly you help launch. I could two thousand eighteen. When i was an unlikely presidential candidate and we made a really powerful case around to advance humanize the economy that i dare say ended up becoming mainstream popular wisdom. Where as we're having this conversation. The last i checked. Eighty five percent of americans four casualties during the pandemic and a majority of for tax relief in perpetuity otherwise known as a basic income. And i'm really eager to take principles that i fought for national level and apply them in new york city around fact-based governance and trying to get bureaucracies to work in a more modern and technologically proficient fashion. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves. Get some incredible people on board and try to steer new york city in a positive direction and this race is also different from the presidential race matt. It's very like the front runner of the presidential so so there's an enormous opportunity here that i hope we take advantage out was a what's new york like. Now i mean we're still in the midst of this pandemic. i know you're probably doing a better job than california enrolling out the vaccine. But we're still under the shadow of this thing what's happening. New york city is badly wounded sam. It's been devastated by the coronavirus on multiple levels and most of your listeners. Know me as a numbers guy. Some of the numbers that reflect how bad it's been a new york city over twenty. Seven thousand lives have been lost over half million of been infected over seven. Hundred thousand jobs have been lost. The unemployment rate is over twice the national average in part because the city is missing sixty million tourists. Who used to support over three hundred thousand jobs. Midtown manhattan commercial. Buildings are eighty two percent unoccupied. Subway ridership is down seventy percent. Violent crimes arising three hundred. Thousand new yorkers have left the city and in terms of filing for change of address forms and and just relocated. So there's a lot of pain and suffering right now. Over ten thousand small businesses restaurants have closed and more joining them all the time. This is a city that derives based upon the coming together in large numbers on people. Visiting on people eating out of every night and a lot of those things aren't happening right now so the it's have been really painful for many many nations and individuals and families here. I know it's bound in california as well But i do think. New york city has special dependence on people feeling like they can come together in large numbers. The i it seems to me that it's really a perfect storm. There with respect to a specific variables of density and dependence on tourism and retail and office space going on occupied and just the weather right there many places in the country where restaurants can start serving outdoors before they they open indoors and and i know you guys tried that but in the dead of winter. It doesn't work very well. Let's go through these topics somewhat systematically. 'cause i'd like to get your take on each the retail office. Space problem eighty two percent unoccupied. One thing that worries me is that there's the prospect that our our habits have changed enough under covid with remote work in particular that conceivable that that office space will go on occupied not because covert has lingered but because habits have changed is that you think that's possible or likely or how do you. How do you view using all the space in new york. If people's attitudes toward remote work have undergone a durable change. I think we're in the midst of acing efficient cultural shifts. I think organizations are going to change how they schedule in person meetings and having people in the office. I do think that there are a couple of forces that have come in different ways. Sam where right now pre covid. There was a tendency for companies to pile employees on top of each other in your as well because it was very expensive office space. So you'd say hey guess what guys like you know slam you into cubicles and bullpens and have people in very close quarters so i think there are going to be shifts in both directions. I believe that some of this space will likely have to change. Its express purpose. But i do not think it'd be realistic for everyone to say. Look things are going to go back to the way they were in terms of people using off the space the same way and frankly in some cases paying the same premium that they were paying there has to be very significant adaptation even as you're trying to accelerate the comeback. We definitely.
