Music that Imitates Inanimate Objects
"Hello. I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. It's pretty obvious that at the beginning of the second movement of Beethoven's Eighth Symphony The Orchestra is imitating something mechanical. That's not a clock ticking. It's a metronome, the machine that was invented to show exactly how fast or slow a piece of music should be played before the metronome. The only way to show the tempo of a piece was by writing fast slow, very fast or very slow usually in Italian on the music. But a composer had no way of telling you exactly how fast very fast was. That's where the. Comes in. In, the early eighteen hundreds Dutch inventor named Dietrich Nichols Vinko perfected a machine that could be adjusted to take at set speeds, but Vinko wasn't a good salesman. So he didn't get credit for it. A friend of Beethoven's Johann. NEPOMUK melt. Seoul was the one who took out the patent on the metronome and marketed it. So he gets the credit. When you see 'em m equals sixty on a piece of music. The M M's stands for metals. metronome equals sixty a metronome marking of sixty is one tic per second, which is about the speed if your pulse. battleplan was the only composer to write music imitating an inanimate object something that's not alive. He wasn't even the only one to write music takes composers love to put clocks into their music. That's the symphony number one, hundred, one by Franz Joseph Haydn, which is nicknamed the clock for pretty obvious reasons. Hungarian composers ultime Kodi put a musical clock into his opera Janos. There's also a famous fairy tale character for Houma clock striking midnight was very important and very scary Sergei. prokofiev wrote a ballet Cinderella including the clock. One last. A tick that slightly off balance, there's a piece by American composer. Leroy Anderson called the syncopated clock. In this piece, the clock goes tick Tock Tick Tock and then suddenly. It does something different syncopation in music is when you shift the accent from where you expect it. To, someplace you don't. Leroy Anderson loved inanimate objects. He wrote another piece imitating one that's just about disappeared these days before there were computers with printers, there was the typewriter. In music, it's not just instruments that imitate inanimate objects sometimes singers due to. That's from the first act of Jacques Offenbach, opera the tales of Hoffmann in which the hero Hoffman falls in love with a woman named Olympia or whether he thinks Olympia is a woman but she's really a mechanical doll in the middle of singing her mechanical music she runs out of steam and someone has to wind her back up. Played. Some wonderful jokes with their mechanical music
A New Ice Cream Truck Song
"If, you weren't aware before you have perhaps learned recently as America has been going through the latest era of reckoning with are racist roots that the classic Ice Cream Truck Song is apparently super racist. That's right. It is not just an annoying earworm that blasts all summer long and sometimes in the winter and late at night at least here in New York City the song commonly referred to as Turkey in the Straw has its origins in lots of other songs passed down in morphed over the years. NPR credits it as evolving from the traditional British tune the old rose tree saying quote the tune was brought to America's colonies by Scots. Irish immigrants who settled along the Appalachian Trail and added lyrics that mirrored their new lifestyle. The first natural inclination of course is to assume that the ice cream truck song is simply pain. Oh my gosh to Turkey in the straw but the melody reached the nation only after it was appropriated by traveling black face minstrel shows there's simply no divorcing the song from the dozens of decades it was almost exclusively used for coming up with new ways to ridicule and profit from black people and quotes. In the eighteen twenties melody was given another new name in lyrics which I won't share because even the title is a slur and then in one thousand, nine, hundred, sixteen, it was given another racist upgrade with an even more egregious title featuring both the inward and a racist stereotype followed by ha ha ha all just in the title without even getting into the lyrics. The song moved into ice cream trucks around the same time, and the reason why is because ice cream parlors played all manner of minstrel songs. So when the truck started popping up, they played the minstrel melodies on the trucks as well. But now, good humor. One of the most iconic ice cream truck vendors in America in the mid, twentieth century has made attempts to atone for their sins they partnered with Wu. Tang clan founder Rizza to create a new ice cream truck jingle quoting rolling stone Ras Jingle will be available to ice cream trucks in the US via music boxes produced by Nichols electronics starting this month Nichols Electronics, which is based in Minneapolis where this year's protests against police brutality racial injustice started after the killing of George Floyd also announced that it would remove Turkey in the straw from it's music boxes and quote. In a video debut in the new Jingle Risi's said quote we wanted to make a military that includes all community that's good for every driver. That's good for every kid and I'm proud to say for the first time in a long time, a new cream jingle will be made available to trucks all across the country in perpetuity that means forever like Wu Tang forever, and I can assure you this one is made with love and quotes, and here is what the new jingles sounds like. I gotta say my favorite part of it other than the complete lack of racist origins is how gentle and calming it is. This jingle is not going to be nearly as annoying to hear when it's blasting from icecream trucks relentlessly all summer long. So really just an overall win in every way

"So as the team's number of teams here, contract the teams that are in some of the quote outer hotels are going to come in to this main hotel, the tier. And that's GonNa be a whole thing because you're going to have the eight teams remaining by the time you get to the second round all stay in the same place in the same as and all of that stuff. I. Do think once when you say, Oh, teams are gonNA see other team's leaving I think the whole look we had one two three Cancun when people weren't trapped in a place outside of their families and friends I think if the team gets down in a playoff series and it doesn't look surmountable that pep talk from the coach about, Hey, we're gonNA come back is going to be a lot harder, right? Yeah and that's where I think all along down here the teams who came here. With purpose, who said, we have a real purpose here. and. We have leadership. Because there's some teams who have purpose who I'm not sure have great leadership and vice versa. But if you have both to give a better chance of of Pushing through look at the blazers, right. That is a team where Damian Lillard said throughout the shutdown and he caught a little flat for at one point but he meant what he said and he was right he's like. I don't want to go down there if we don't even have a to win if we're just window-dressing if I don't have a path to the playoffs if I don't have something to play for, why am I going down there right and eventually they came to this decision about the playing games and it's never going to be fair to everyone. But at least this was the most fair to the most people and they felt going in fun. All right. You're giving us a lane at least have a path to get there. The leadership on that team is strong the purpose strong and they by the way think we pull first round playoff upset even though it might be an eight no one. Because you've got veterans that's not a normal eighth seed with rain and. What, that team if Trevor Reza had been hearing in another wing player. They'd be even more. I, mean right now they're going to be dangerous Gary Trent Juniors Bender kind of revelation here, and and now we get into this last week of the seating games rage and you saw it yesterday and I wrote about this today, some of the teams were competing for the to get in the playoffs. They weren't thrilled to see the jazz set everybody in a game against what would have been really an eminently winnable game against the Spurs Spurs are in that group. And the jazz at everybody, and then they play the Spurs again, the last game X. Thursday. In the seating game and you wonder at that point if a team like the jazz who solidified sure how many there guys are going to play then the rest or the end that kind of thing. Yeah. Yeah. But especially against. When you've got all these teams, who said we're GONNA come down or told we're getting a fair chance to to compete to get in the playoffs and then a team competing with just gets a Freebie that you're gonNa to you're to see more guys sitting this week. Now the blazers benefit today because he doesn't play right there's but but that part of it is You're going to hear more talk about that this week. Yeah. But my answer to that is, yeah what's new rate playoff races every year come down to a couple of games land for couple either seating guys getting into the playoffs and there's always teams the benefit from twitter the end of the season, the teams that are safely in often rest there guys arrested people and even in a completely normal regular season, you have teams who are competing for the same playoff spot where one team excel and they're playing the team resting there guys I think the argument, the counter to that is was supposed to be different. and. This was a different scenario like we all accept that we finish out our seasons. We didn't. We weren't finishing our seasons. We all came down. We thought we had you know Kinda this. Plainfield and so I think there's more sensitivity to it because. What you had to go through to back and play, and so again, it is this your it's exactly how this goes down the stretch of any season and by the way if it's Milwaukee or the clippers, I would look at any of those teams or the jazz in this case who were saying Oh this isn't fair. Why aren't you fully participating and saying I'm not wrecking my team for your benefit right? I think my guy needs to rest going in the playoffs. So yes, I'm all for the sense of fairness and Everyone giving it a shot. But when I feel like it actually starts to damage my teams playoff chances. I'm not going to do that and I don't blame them right if they feel I'm again I'm pulling this out of the air but if they feel after rescue on us for the final game of the regular season or whatever, they're not going to not do it because San Antonio needs to feel like they had a fair shot against whoever I mean the they wanna be short for the playoffs and it could be anyone. There's going to be. I think the Camaraderie of Hey, we're all in this together. It's important for the League. We've got to think about something bigger than ourselves. We gotta get down there. WE'VE GOT A. Like our league depends on this I think that's going to get chipped away out here and self interest starts to drive starts to drive it absolutely as as expected and by the way fans complain about players being to collegial now, right Back in the nineties whatever well. You know they're only collegial up to a point. Though is going to be fun. We're we're listening we're. Almost. To the playoffs. You know week. Loose track dates. Let's. Say. About. We've got about a week, Thursday Friday the end of the seating games and then. into the playoffs some this was fun rich. Thanks for jumping in. You've got another. Week or so here, and then refuel at home and then come back. Out Yeah absolutely. But it's it's fascinating and I will say as the last thing being here you have a great awareness of just how complicated this was to pull off that every decision but gets ten more decisions. Okay. We're GONNA them food. Well, how are we bringing in food who's bringing the food who's cooking the food or are they doing it in the quote safe zone and a separate zone or they bring it? In I did a piece on the mail room here, which like it's a mailroom right it shouldn't be that complicated. It's really complicated how packages and everything or getting in here. So the scope of what the NBA has pulled off here even as we start to worry about next season, it is worth noting that when you were inside the bubble, it is tremendous. It is so impressive and it says something about the League. Absolutely rich. Thanks. We'll we'll. See Round here soon absolutely..

"Back into this bubble Rachel, think prior to when this was being laid out to the players in the teams and what everyone's concerns were about. How everyone would handle this? What's been your sense around players? About think there was some fear of guys. We're going to be climbing the walls in here that people were going to be so frayed by the how contained it was. Now, we haven't been in. There's a long way to go in here. What did you guys in terms of? How they're handling. The limitations of being in a bubble in. The environment around this place it's kind of interesting right I mean everybody out there can make the same designations within their friends circle. Especially, in the first few months where of the pandemic where everybody was really in their homes, there's a huge split between your friends who had kids and your friends who didn't rate my friends who have kids were constantly like God I'm trying to teach eighth grade math to my own child while also working while also doing this and I can't go outside my friends with little kids We're we're climbing walls because the. Kids were contained in a space and they can't go to the playground anymore anything my friends who didn't have children were like, oh. What did you binge this week? What? What did you do? Whatever you know that sort of thing so I think you're seeing the same thing in the bubble where you have players who are in their early twenty s who live an apartment anyway who basically even when they're back in their. Home Market live in the apartment, hang out with some other guys on the team and maybe some other random friends and who they've met in that market or whatever, and sit around and play video games. We'll the bubbles better for them. This is actually better. They don't have to worry about getting themselves. From ADP, NBA players lives are already pretty catered. Now, they're completely catered like literally from the moment they wake up to. The moment they go to bed someone's planned and thought of everything for them. They get to hang out with a bunch of their friends, not just on their teams but other teams to now they can go anywhere. They want to other hotels in whatever the Lakers have this madden football tournament going on where each guy put in a few hundred bucks and they picked a team to be for the whole season they have. Complex they. By weeks. They have a whole schedule. I believe they're in week seven quote unquote of their tournament You know. So for some of those younger guys I think. Quite except for some of the very specific G, they can't be around. Women or the public in the same way. But I think for a lot of those guys, it's actually for the eighty percent of their lives is a great set for them for the older guys with families. It is very impactful enters hard and I was talking to I. Think it was Kyle Korver about you know I've said to him Oh you know that's a team Milwaukee that's a team that intends to be here for a while and. You know are are you gonNA. Bring Your family brain and he said, you know I don't know he's like the policy for families is that you've got to come into the state. You've got a quarantine in Florida in a strange place that you don't know not at home, and then you have to come in here and quarantine in a single hotel room for I think four days he's like my wife with young kids and and she's a single hotel room with the children and they can't go anywhere and they can't go out and do anything. The process to bring families into the bubble is so stringent. I understand why? But I've heard players say I don't know if I'm GONNA bring my family in and then that's a very different situation for them and I think it's very hard to those guys I think are feeling the impact of the bubble in different way. was talking to a GM about this the other day, and he thinks that once team start to be eliminated and they see guys leaving. that. It'll be interesting to see the impact on the guys who are staying and I think it's going to get I think it's already there was a Toronto. Boston game the other day. That was it was chippy and it was a physical game. It was a it was. What you're going to see is we get in the playoffs and There's a lot of curiosity about I. think so far it's been pretty collegial in the. Rival like their rival teams in the same hotel down the same elevators they're coming through. It's going to be different when you're in a seven game series with somebody and something happens because something's going to happen. and. Now you're going back to the hotel now. The Environment And oh by the way, the referees are all living among you. Yes and the referees are here and All the are going on like these speed walks around the campus or coaches get out is a staff just to get out of their head and referees or there and. It's going to be a different environment I think as we get through his is the first. Group A, teams, leave, and then we get into the post season I. think the feel around this place is is going to dramatically change i. feel it in some spots already was it kyle lowry who shouted out his remember to someone the other day on the court and said, you can catch me here you're that interested in it. And also all the are going to be moving into the same hotel. So as they advance now we're spread around three Disney properties and that was part of the arrangement with Disney. The Disney would close those properties to the public, but obviously just needs not making the money from the public on those properties..

"Whiteboard I don't know if there's literally whiteboard since probably nobody's in the office there. Maybe and Adam Silver's house but. If the season were to start later, do something similar to the NHL which was a an Olympic break and then come back and finish. For a couple reasons, you'd allow your players who to go play in the Olympics. Also it allows you to not have to go up against the Olympics for television. Even beat Olympics. Two, thousand, twenty one, that's the other as say I'm not sure there's going to be an Olympics, I mean you and I have covered a bunch of Olympics and we know the scale of that and the idea of bringing not just the athletes but all the team people and that coaches and trainers in from all of these different countries all over the world to basically have the. What would turn into a virus summit and then have them bring that all back to their countries and fans the Olympics really runs on ticket sales. So if that see, you know if I don't know what the State of Japan is going to be, and whether they're going to allow fans in the stands, but that would obviously be part of the Olympics, but even if there is an Olympics and. Even. If the NBA figured out of which take a break again you're dealing with it's not just a break of Oh. We're going to let the players go home for two weeks in the pot idea or go to the Olympics for a month. You then have to have that re ramp-up of anyone who went has to a get back into the country which we've seen is now a border problem. Because of different countries, closing borders because of Corona virus, and then do they get tested when they come back and how many of them have caught something, and then how many of them have to be put isolation when you're trying to plan a calendar of Oh, we're going to take a break for ax. You then have to basically add a month to everything to really ramp up for a safe environment. How much do you think what baseball or the NFL does this fall and whether they have acceptable losses quote unquote of like Oh hey fourteen marlins players got it. But we're still going we're not shutting down the League when fourteen MARLINS members organization. Got It. And if the American public is okay with that overtime with baseball and football, how do you think that's going to influence the NBA with how tightly sealed? They feel like they need their bubble bay. My Sense. All along Rachel is that the League has. I. Think has in the Players Association and that's where it gets back to I, think when you compare the NBA to baseball in the NFL. The biggest difference in how I think these decisions are made. It is is far less of a adversarial relationship. With the League in their player Association versus the NFL and baseball which are. Baseball's extremely cereal. I think football. Might know better. I. Think you do know better somewhere in between baseball in the NBA quite as bad as. It has certainly has its moments maybe it is as bad but they're certainly not good. And I think that. Impacts how the NBA. And the players. Work together on. What they allow and I think there's more I hear it all the time and we're seeing it in other sports and I talked at team people whose research and data. You know the really concerned about the long term impact of getting the virus on people's bodies on the lungs on the whatever they they don't have that information you're starting to see some instances. That are very alarming people in sports and so this idea of well, I'll just get the virus and then I'll be immune and there isn't that jude, it'll be two weeks it'd be it isn't that attitude and I think so I don't sense. There's this cavalier now individually, are there players who I think in some instances thought that way that way? Yeah. But. Just like there are people in society who think that way I don't think. But I do think there's concerns and so I think there's less. I. Do think that the the NBA as a whole when you count the players and the League have less, I think less of a willingness to just have. An acceptable level of. Of loss personnel over the course of a season and I think. Barring. Dramatic turnaround in. This. country. I have a hard time seeing them trying to play this league. Outside of a bowl. And remember to basketball is a sport where everyone's breathing on each other the most they're shouting within distance of each other baseball says the advantage of haywar outside and guys aren't banging into each other in the same way all the time. But I am curious again would goes back to what becomes normalized right what would people just kind of deal with an accept and if we go through an entire baseball season here and then start up an NFL season here where team seemed to be okay. If there's a rash of eight players who get it and then either they. Cancel that game because they can't put a baseball roster together or they don't cancel that game because they complain NFL game without eight of their guys, and then that just becomes a normal thing and acceptable thing in sports I wonder how that impacts the NBA thinking even if they are league that has historically even historically care more about their players and certainly now have the best relationship I, mean the the stuff you'd have Jeff Passan NBA, versus baseball with so eye-opening but even then I just it's again what's normal in this country and every day changes I think. For the League now. There's a lot of negotiations and have to go on about next season between the players association the NBA. A great deal of it hasn't really started there. They wanted to get through the beginning of the restart they wanted to get off. Kind of keep their focus on. Getting through and beyond solid footing within the bubble but those conversations are going to start I think more in earnest. Now I mean, we're not far off..

"People who sit courtside and pay the most money the people in the sweets because in the end it's going to be you're gonNA try to raise as much money as you can off of however many seats people you can get in you're GonNa, make this exclusive experience. There's really no other way to do it if you're just trying to pin so many markets, it's not up to the NBA is not going to be there are some governors there's. So many governors who have already said we are not allowing mass gatherings at sporting events and I think even two thousand people qualifies as mass gathering to them in the northeast. All of those governors have been very strict about what they've done, and by the way it's worked the coronavirus numbers are lower there than anywhere else I live in California where several NBA teams are the governor of California back in April said no more fans at sporting events for the entire calendar year. and. Then the one other idea that I think is I think lowest on the Well. There's a lot of them are neutral sites. What if? Let's say you're in L. A. Washington new. York. You cannot have people in arena and there's more cities than three. But there's a city where you could. It may not be an NBA city, but it may be a metropolitan enough location that says, no, no, we could. We could accommodate fans maybe it's Vegas maybe it's Nevada maybe it's now again to think that that there will be places in this country that can put thousands of thousands of people in an arena within next year Harder. Budget. But that's again one of the they're trying to roll through every possibility. That's another one of them. But what's the demand then to rate if you're only one neutral site? People. You and you even if there is a way to put fans even if you've got gotta state to let you do it for the first week maybe you'd have enough people who are in that state wanting to come to games. But at some point, you're not really gonNA have fans travelling in for those games in the same way because there's so many travel restrictions in places and a lot of people are like on like getting on an airplane right now or that kind of thing if you want to have an eighty two game season with thirty teams in one site. Because you can have fans in their what the fan demand going to be. Once you get to game forty two. And I think teams. Now you talked to them and they're really struggling with the idea of you keep telling people no fans in arenas. No because it's reality. No fans no fans. It's not a great most places. You are really trying to market organization to sell tickets, sell outs or not automatic. Anywhere but a few places. and. You have an audience that you're chipping away at here, and that's why the teams who aren't playing. Now the Atlanta's in Cleveland's and Minnesota's and Detroit's who need to be in the news they need to be have a presence in their market. If they're all rebuilding teams. Some have more to sell than others to their fan base the idea for them, not just that they can't get their team together and they see the wizards and sons with younger rosters here getting training camp and Games and like what advantage this is. But in. Chicago's who aren't in this. Like not just that you can't get your players. Organized in the gym, you further distance from your fans hang customers who? Stuck in assume they're all gonna come back in the. For the following season. It's a lot of trouble for the league. That's why I am concerned about this idea of let's push it off. Let's push off because I think what we've learned in this country this year with this virus is the end is not as insight as we might thought, it was at the beginning I think that when we were all sitting in our houses at the end of March, the assumption was well I mean certainly by the fall we'll have football back football sitting there being like Oh yeah the NBA and Major League Baseball figure this out but it'll be fine by the fall and of course, that's not the case so i. Love reading every story about a promising vaccine literally, the best news in my day when one of those pops into my timeline but we also being told by medical experts that even once a vaccine comes out the first crack at a vaccine is not usually the best one and the distribution for vaccines taken entire calendar year if not more to sort of cycle through country. So when I hear the Oh, what the League wants to start December first but maybe they pushed back to February again in your story today about the idea of Martin Luther King Day at the end of January or February around the all star typical break or something. I think banking on the fact that it's going to be better by January or February does not seem to be in line with the news. I'm following right now and so I do worry to your point about presence of mind not just for those markets for the twenty nine markets in thirty teams is if you just kind of keep endlessly pushing back until quote we can have fans you go year without basketball and I think that would be so detrimental to the league's a whole teams i. mean you know the financials better than me like I don't know how teams could survive that you're going to see tremendous. Lay Offs. There's been some I. Think you'd see mass layoffs and organizations. They go a year without fans and without that revenue for most. You'll see dramatic cuts which the average fan may or may not care about but the financial impact on organizations will be. Dramatic and how they operate and You know back to the vaccine I know the League has told teams. If there is a vaccine sometime. And of two, thousand, twenty year beginning two, thousand, twenty. One of something is you know expect a year for the distribution like you said in so that doesn't just mean magically we're gonNA. So. Those are all. Factors and then the Olympics and how the Olympics plays into in Tokyo and July. Part of the thought of starting December one was got the season over in time for players to go play in the Olympics one other idea they have brought up in his on the..

"The virtual fans thing took a minute for everyone to get their bearings on what it was but the fact that you can have celebrity cameos at NBA game still, which is an essential part of this constellation of what makes the NBA kind of glamorous the you can figure out a way to do that in Orlando in the middle of pandemic. Pretty Brilliant. So we're almost to the playoffs. In this bubble. No positive tests. The basketball has been pretty good that it's going to get better. You Start and see the intensity of the Games. There's more on the line now. With especially with Memphis losing jaren Jackson and they're fighting to just hold onto the eighth seed. Portland San Antonio. Phoenix still tried the those three. Had further to come from behind. But yet when you talk to people around the League. A lot of the focus is still on next season. And what next season's GonNa look like I wrote about that today and laid out a lot of. A lot of the brainstorming that's going on. And I think I, do too. I think there's two things that people really WanNa know thing internally externally. When does! The season start? Right. Now, it's pencilled in for December one. And and is there going to be a point this season? Where they're going to be fans. And I think both those questions are still. I think they're on answered I, think again and. Bubble or Even if there's no fans, 'cause you do at home markets or would you have to do it in a bubble exclusively? Yeah and if you're GONNA, do it in home markets with no fans you're going to probably do the practice facility. You're going to do it in venue that number one cost less than half to open up, you can dress it up, for TV, a little easier. Perhaps, but then you're asking your players to live. The way the baseball players are living here, NFL players living in communities. Where there's no in many cases no handle it all on the virus were or. Michelle Roberts is on the record of saying. If we see then what we're seeing now, we we need to be back in a bubble and then the bubble conversation right now I'm told is. More than one bobble. Maybe. Almost, a pod. Idea and nobody knows team in a bubble for longer than a month. So you might go in for a month budget teams play each other everyone goes home. Go back to your family you go back to practice. And then you move onto the next pot. The next group of teams you plow through a bunch more games. With the idea that at some point in the season Can you get fans in arenas? That's the most important thing to owners. Because of the impact, it has on revenue. And and what they've said to me is if we're GONNA push back from December one or push it back significantly the reason to do so as we think the will be a point where. We'll be able to get people in Arenas. I have so many questions about this. We've been talking about this for weeks. I'm fascinated by what they're gonNA do for next season I think a lot of people are because this season feels like, okay we have a plan and we don't know how it's GonNa work out but we do know the bubble seems to be working at least now we see the teams we see the structure we know how it's going to go but let's take the mini pod theory right if they did that. It took about a month for them in the NBA was so smart in the way they manage coming into this bubble for to start testing players member. They started testing the first week in July, and that is where the net had to be to catch guys who Were positive and didn't even know it right those guys had to be home and quarantine for a minimum of fourteen days. It took some of them longer right. Then by the time they get to the bubble they still caught the net still caught two people who made it all the way here to Orlando, and we're quarantining in their rooms and had positive tests and then had to be isolated, and then you basically got to the point where you could get two zero positive test for players in the bubble but it took about four weeks to run everyone through the cycle of testing and quarantining, and then having teams have their full. Failings players if you're talking about many pods right where you have players in for four weeks and then out, I believe you had your story, the idea that it would be what two weeks out. Well, if someone goes home to their family and even if they're not reckless, you don't have to be reckless to to catch this virus. So they go to home to their family and their kid play date with someone or something like that, and ten days into those fourteen days. They become positive but don't know yet, and then they're showing up for the next pod and get tested and what I mean by the second pot, I can see half the teams having significant player loss players in quarantine, and maybe that's just going to be reality from now on. But even that seems to be an issue I don't know how they're going to do it. You know teams are. Modeling. All kinds, different scenarios internally, what would it look like an arena with two thousand fans or four, thousand or eight thousand are there points where we could bring in?.
"nichols" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"Here in the bubble with ESPN's Rachel Nichols. Rachel. How are you? I'm bubbalicious. Thank you. Saturday morning in the bubble and. We have a little corner of. The the resort here's a little. Corner of ESPN people and. We get on a bus we kind of move around here. You've been here. What made him month a month? Long have I been here? You lose track of time I mean let's be honest. I was losing track of time this entire shutdown rate. How do you differentiate a Tuesday from a Sunday when no one's actually going out of the House to work or school or anything like that. But yes, down here absolutely. One of our colleagues was coming down Forecast Hubbard? She's coming in. And she texted me the other day and said Hey I'm leaving. What should I bring and I go I. Thought you weren't coming to like August seventh or something. It was August six. Yeah. Oh, that's not two weeks from now. Now that's that's now. There you go. When people ask you? Rachel. What it's like in here especially. To Watch the Games because people are watching the Games on television. And what I get a lot of like you guys aren't carrying the sound in there. Right? The players don't hear the piped-in sound. They're not hearing. The music this is just for TV ragged there's a lot of. People. Think that we're just sitting in A. Quiet empty studio we'll part of that is because they used the scrimmages to experiment with what was in the gym versus what was on TV and at the start in the scrimmages, it really was a lot quieter in the arena. You could hear the squeak of every sneaker they weren't piping in the crowd noise they were piping and music, but not crowd noise for the first couple of scrimmages. It was silent at the free throw line to the point of Jj Rettig told me he hasn't shot free throws without noise. He's not even duke he said a Duke. You'd have the student student section hushing each other, but there was always some guy from Maryland yelling. At me the other way and here for the first week or so of games, they cut the music out for three free throws and he said he was so unnerved at absolute silence when he was trying shooter the he looked over Jamal Crawford on the bench at one point said, can you start heckling me or something like come on and that I think enough players said it's weird when it's completely silent. So they did start piping in some crowd noise and things like that and it's late I don't think it's heavy as it is on TV but there is no point in the building now where it's complete silence and it was for the first couple scrimmages. I've told people it feels like you're on a spaceship. Watching like holograms like you have to you sitting there. And you've got the virtual fans in the background and then the benches and then nothing else around it and you're going well. James Harden, right? That's definitely honest. That's Libron. But it doesn't seem like it should be them but it is. For the first few games when you're at because we are at almost floor level or floor level depending on the arena but we're basically right there on the same level as the players and for the first few games to me it felt like we were actually inside a video game video game graphics are so good right now that it really felt like with the video board surrounding us it felt like I'm like, Oh, I'm in trouble now like this is what's happening. But I think it's remarkable and I'm wondering if it's the same for people watching on TV how quickly it feels normal and maybe that's an analogy for all kinds of things in our country that had been normalized but it goes pretty quick. I'm watching the Games now and I'm not thinking, Oh, I'm not seeing so and so in the Super Fan in the stands or any of that, do you feel like when you're watching to get lost in the game being normal now? Does, you get used to it and I've watched I'm obviously watching games in the arena, but I'm also watching games back. You're not there all the time and and so. It does I. Guess it's like anything else. It's funny when we first talked about Orlando and playing here in the division I had I've seen games in. What's called used to be called? The Milk House I guess they call the fieldhouse. Now I've Seen College Games and there I remember being here. I. Guess It was a Thanksgiving Tournament and I stayed a couple days. Later I remember it come down with my family and I knew there are a bunch of NBA scouts GM's at one of the college thing. So I stayed a couple extra days. And so I remember watching like a Rhode Island. Whoever they were playing a game and it was empty and it was like. And the seats were largely empty and you're going so I'm picturing. Are. An NBA game with all these empty seats in the background. not this the very beginning before you realized. How they were going to frame the court and they weren't going to see any of that and it is from what I I imagined because of my experience having been there to what it's become, it is pretty remarkable. I think it's brilliant I really do I mean given the limitations of what you can and can't do. I. Think it's pretty incredible with the sidelines they've created for fans to be able to see and the virtual fan thing is so funny you and I talked a few months ago. The last part I did with you about what were they going to right and what Korean baseball had done, and now what we see American baseball is doing with the cardboard cutouts in some cases and whatever..
Coins and Cash: Shortages, Hoardings, and Threats
"Walking money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works how to invest it, and how to live without worrying about it. I'm your host David Stein today's episode three, Zero Eight. It's titled Cash Coins. shortages. Forty and threats. Weeks ago, my daughter and I were at a bakery buying a couple of loaves of bread. We didn't have the exact change and they didn't have the coins to make chain. So they rounded down, we got a small discount. This week I was going through the McDonald's drive through, and there was a sign that said due to treasury shortage of coins, use credit or debit cards. Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told Congress last month. What happened is that with the partial closure of the economy, the flow of coins through the economy, it has gotten all. It's kind of stopped. We've been aware of it. We're working with the meant to increase supply while working with the reserve banks to get this apply to where it needs to be. The Agency of the US Treasury responsible for minting coins is the US. Meant it was established in seventeen ninety two by Congress when it passed the coinage Jack and it chose Philadelphia as the site of the I meant. Now, the US mint operates production facilities in Philadelphia, San, Francisco Denver, and West Point. Every two years, Congress requires US Treasury to give a report on the US mint its budget and its cost to produce its coins. In twenty twenty, the US meant projected that it would produce fourteen billion circulating coins. Including eight and a half billion pennies. One point, three, billion Nichols two point, four, billion times. One Point, eight, billion quarters. Now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the US mint cut back production of circulating coins in March and April. Year to date through July, they had produced eight point, two, billion coins. They said, they were back up to full capacity by mid. June anticipate producing one point six, five, billion coins per month. That would equate eighteen point, one, billion coins. But here's the thing about circulating coins in the US and other countries. The meant only contributes a relatively small percentage of the new circulating coins each year twenty, nineteen, it was seventeen percent. New. Coins. Going into the supply chain? The remainder came from third party coin processors are recyclers as individuals by things they get back and there are machines where you can put your spare change and it will sort it and this recirculating process. Make sure there is a sufficient supply of coins that has broken down. A couple of weeks ago, meant issued a bulletin, which said, we ask that the American. Public start spending their coins, depositing them or exchanging them for currency at financial institutions or taking them to a coin reduction kiosk. The coin supply problem can be solved with each of us doing our part. This isn't the first time that there has been a coin shortage. There was one in the early nineteen sixties in the US.
Open Source NLU - Alan Nichol, Rasa
"I mean what we're trying to build with Raza is the standard infrastructure for conversationally I. So the same way that you have these. have no brainer technology choices, right? If you're adding. Search to your stack, you're gonNA use elastic search. If you're working with containers used docker similarly, if you're building conversationally, I use Raza. That's where we're headed. That's what we're aiming for, and of course, if you want to be that level of standard, you'd better be open source, right? So that's in a nutshell, the way it started was that my co founder, Alex and I. Were, building a few assistance ourselves. We had the first couple on the slack platform. We had some people bang for them. And just realize that the developer tools were lacking in. So many different ways, right. So we were using the tools that everyone was the time with a I was big than dial. was called API. Time the review others. And? While we kind of came with his controversial statement, right? So two thousand, Sixteen Fiscal Messenger Platform was opening up. And there's all this high. You know such an Adela, saying the new APPS and I go all this kind of. Rhetoric. And the day before that announcement from facebook, we wrote a posting. We don't know how to build conversationally I yet. Right? Like nobody knows the tools aren't there and this isn't GonNa go very well. And I think that has sort of played out kind of as we predicted, which was that the push came from people wanting to users through messenger APPs right because APP downloads or difficult to get. Wasn't because all of a sudden. We'd stumbled into a great new piece of technology and we're like, wow, look at all the new things we can build. Right. It was very much coming from people wanting to talk to people in Messaging APPs. And so we said, well, look, let's start for principals and think what tools do. We actually need to build great compensation I and what developers need. And we were working with some of these cod products realize that they're great for getting started quickly, but you very quickly also pain yourself into a corner, right? And the other thing as a developer, right? If you're. If, you're building an ailing startup. You're doing something right and every single message that goes in to your application has to go through a third party to get interpreted. It's pretty precarious situation to be as a developer right, and so we built a few things and we decided to hack together own. System, and then we were running this meet up in Berlin chat bots, balls, Berlin meet up. And everyone was saying Oh we're going to do. We're GONNA. Do our own NLP. You know. We don't have time now, but maybe next month something like that. Right, and always you know what he did, and so we said, well, why don't we just open source hours? And then everybody can contribute rather than rebuilding. Thanks. Very. Innocent insight by this was sort of six or eight months after message from opened up and everyone who is still seriously in the space have the same thought which was. I'm really dependent on the service which might shutdown might so being freedom is charging for it. It's not a great position to be in as a developer, and so when we said look, here's an open source drop in replacement for the clouds will the using. Now, it was just kind of the right product at the right time and instantly got a big community farming around it. So that's was kind of where we started, but we'd been working already for. Six months on a better way to build dialogue, and that wasn't ready for Primetime yet, but we'd already been working on that problem which was okay. It's nice to have this system right and you bring in message and you get back and intended some entities. bought. What do you do with that information and you just layer more if statements on one another all the time that be we're going to get anywhere, and so we've been thinking about that problem very hard and. because. Of the success of Razzano you which was the name of the library, I punched it. We decided to go all in on open sourced look. Everything has to be open source. And that kind of set us down that path burn interesting. Very interesting. So came from chat bots that came from a real need in the developed community using these cloud services I, you had wall stability tools, yourself, you open them up, and the rest is history of the community call onset communities been a real real key to success. Right? Right. From the very beginning, the community has built this company with you
Getting Ready for the 2020 Emmys
"The Television Academy has just unveiled the nominees for this year's edition of the Emmy Woods Nichols Fernando Augusta per checker and colossal rebelo went through the list and brought us the highlights. Let's have a listen. Pelada. Lovely to have you here. Let's talk about the AMI's but first of all, I mean, you have quite an experience with the amas right while I was very lucky last year while working out of our Los Angeles Bureau to attend the ceremony last for the seventy first. Edition of the Emmy Awards it is amazing. It really is a celebration of all things television not only of course, you're able to see the ceremony yourself and how it all unfolds that the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, you get to sit right next to some of your favorite stars as they celebrate you know a year worth of work you get to watch as some of them lose some of them when at last year was quite. Special because it was of course, the last year that game of thrones was nominated the end of the saga of game of thrones, which was, of course, a really big deal and one thing that I really liked about that was also how they marked the series that were coming to an end last year by bringing all the cast in the production team that was attending the ceremony on stage and kind of acknowledging any TV show that's on. Air for. A few years it is a bit sad one. You know the last time modern family was also the last. So it yeah, it is. It is quite an experience. I mean we are still a few months to go until this year's edition. Hopefully, we'll be able to have it in person by then by September the television academy still hasn't exactly unveiled the plans for that. But yeah, it just feels as much as it is A. Celebration of television it feels very different to watch it in person than on. TV. Sets and if he's going to be a special year because I mean we've been watching lots of television during lockdown effing and one of the things don't you grieve me. Colada that I like about the Emmys they are. You know what they are actually fairly diverse compared to the film awards and that just shows TV can be actually quite progressive away. Absolutely I think. The nominations this year as well. Reflects that diversity is well and yeah it does show how TV has been able to catch up with only momentum that has been happening in Hollywood about asking for change when it comes to diversity. But even if you look at the shows that are nominated or even just a shows that we're watching now they are reflection of different stories that are a reflection of different themes it's not as standard I would. Say, for example, with the Oscars and I think that's what makes it quite an interesting and exciting. Well, let's talk about some of the favorites I did like sheets Greek being nominated for comedy series of things surprise it started as a very little Canadian series but then apparently people saying that my win actually because the critics love it oh, it is a fantastic show I definitely has been one of the ones I've been watching this year and I was very happy to see it getting nominated for the outstanding Comedy Series Award another one on that category that it was really happy to see their it's the kaminsky methods. This is a Netflix show and yes, it is very lovely with Michael. Douglas starring in it and it is very funny as well and it was so nice to see you know it. They're in the category as well and I just I was very happy I. Think. As we were saying the nominations this year do justice to the TV. We've been watching I mean drama succession I know we're both big fans and you know Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong both be nominated for best actor in a drama series very well deserved extremely well deserved and it is, of course, we're talking here about a big categories. As if you go down the list, there are more awards being given to all the shows we've been mentioning. Not Awards, nominations I mean. But yes, I was very, very happy to see succession I think personally, it has been one of my favorite shows over the last few years I can't remember being dad excited about a show in succession was already nominated for Fiore's last year. I. Know that Nicholas Brutal do who composed the sound score for at won an emmy last year. For. For the score, he composed for succession that would be nice to see it how it's catching momentum and that fans quite disappointed that due to coronavirus sat filming restrictions. The third series did not come out this year as planned but this is a recognition of TV done very very well, there's been other recognitions for example, the morning show had quite a few nominations. And again, it was a show that it was not like loved the beginning by tics but I think people kind of were said, you know what actually was a good series especially the last episode of series. So another one I'm very happy also have very significant for apple as well as the morning show was you know the show that apple try to use as? To make its mark as someone that could compete with the network giants and streaming giants as well. So not only is a very good sign for the a seeing Jennifer Aniston Steve Carell nominated but also to see apple when they've been investing into the right series hiring great actors, great writers, Great Producers, and that it actually pays off and Collado. So what if Jimmy Kimmel? This time I mean, as you rightly said, we don't know how ceremony is going to be, but you know what bt awards they did try and they did like a special ceremony. Names might have to do that because it's happening on the twentieth September. That's very the as the television academy has said that the creative emmys, which you know the creative emmy is usually happen a few days before the Primetime Emmys and they've already said that those are happening on an online platform a few days before didn't haven't clarified yet for the AMI's themselves. We still don't know exactly what are the plans now? What is interesting about Jimmy, Kimmel here hosting I think it's his third time hosting is that he is nominated as well. His show Jimmy came alive is on the outstanding variety talk series, and there's always very endearing one. You know one of the host sometimes even people introducing the award end up being nominated. So yeah, I'd be curious to see exactly how that's going to pay out I don't know. was there any surprise nomination here on this list for you? Fernando as F- in the morning show was A bit of a surprise for me and also in the drama category I mean, we saw men hurriedly having quite a lot of nominations itself Jeremy Pope for his role in Hollywood for a best actor on limited series or movie because Lotte I think competition program should go again to Rupo's drag race. Oh Yeah. His love rapport figured they will he would win again just shows how you know when Ru Paul's drag race started. It was a very Niche not known at the public, and now they've been doing this for over a decade now, and there's just shows how you know there is an appetite for a show like that that it is mainstream, there's no way you can't say that anymore and is so empowering it is, of course, one of my personal favorites as well. It was really nice last year to be there when they won and to see Europol come on stage with a lot of the. Of the show as well and some of the judges when we look at that category I'm partial to and I would love to see them winning again on that category.

Who Is Strong?
"Just about everybody had one. Strong's exhaustive concordance of the Bible. Seem like you have a Bible and somewhere next to it. You would have strong's concordance. It was first published in eighteen ninety. It contains a numbering system for Hebrew and Greek words. And it has eight thousand, six, hundred, seventy four, Hebrew roots that are numbered and five thousand, five, hundred, twenty three Greek roots that are numbered. This is massive this work, this exhaustive concordance, showing where every word in the Bible could be found with its book, Chapter and verse. It is massive in this before computers before software programs, and before search engines, which means this work was all done by hand well, this same strong also served as editor of the massive ten volume. Cyclo Pedia a Biblical theological and ecclesiastical literature. It was published from eighteen, sixty seven through eighteen, eighty one. And if that's not enough this same strong, finally worked on a committee that produced the American Standard version of the Bible for thirty years. This committee labored from eighteen seventy one until the SV was published in nineteen o one. Charles Hodge was one of those editors Pantheon of scholars of the day one hundred and one editors all worked on the American Standard version, and one of those one hundred and one was the strong. So, who is he well? He is James Strong. He was born in New York City on August, fourteenth, eighteen, twenty, two. He died in New York in eighteen ninety four. He wanted to be a doctor when he was young, but he went off to Wesleyan University in Middletown Connecticut and there he studied Biblical languages among other things he was really layman, and he had a fascinating career. He organized a railroad company, and then built the flushing railroad in the eighteen fifties. It was later incorporated in his actually part of the the railroad subway system of the New York road today. He also served as a mayor of his hometown on Long Island. He taught for a while in Vermont. But his main career was at drew theological seminary, and there he was for twenty five years just prior to going to drew, he was the acting president of Troy University, and sometime in the eighteen fifties, he published an article that the Methodist Church should establish a seminary and the new. York vicinity to train ministers for the Gospel. He was mocked for that article. There were many who thought that you shouldn't train ministers that God just hand picked them, so they should be God trained, not man trained, but strong persistent, and he was soon joined by others and drew theological seminary opened. He was part of what was called the strong five who were among those five who started the seminary. The early president of the seminary was James mclintock. He knew strong back from their days when they were working on that ten volumes cyclope. That massive edited work that strong also served on so the two of them together set off with some other faculty to establish drew. One of his colleagues at drew, said this of James Strong. At night in the library, he worked like a plow horse, but in the lecture room he was a Colt. No one ever went to sleep in his class unless he wasn't bad. Health or an embassy saw well. That's what they thought of James Strong. He spent thirty five years working on the strong's exhaustive concordance. It was published in eighteen ninety. It became a standard text, and as I said just about everybody had a copy of strong's concordance. Well, that's who strong was and I'm Steve Nichols the thanks for joining us for five minutes in Church history.

What's happening out there with this yet. There's this kind of interesting strange situation that's also has a sense of inevitability about where in a lot of places. I'm as masks becoming and trade that pot of people's everyday uniform now. Of course you're saying people starting to inject some sense of personality and style into what they're wearing so. I think in Asia. This has become very common correspondent. James Chambers is recent before about different colors can signify and that you know yellows with a lot of the cool kids wear and read and Etcetera Etcetera. And there's all kinds of different senses of style on now that we're seeing in a lot of us. Cds that mandatory by seeing that pickup and a lot of fashion Brown's astounding to so musk's and what they're doing is that we've done night some and so summoned to this this sort of offset being which makes it seem more sort of charitable. But then he saw the thing happened over the weekend my soul someone on social media basically from a luxury ecommerce site and it was a mosque by a big straightway brand because as an aside straight way brands have Masa they part of their collections for a long time they come in and out of fashion just as a fashion statement anyway and there was one of these mosques that was on the site and was going for. I think eight hundred dollars and then something about that just felt really odd and uncomfortable and the image was was circulated and reposted posted. And it's since been taken down the muscles being taken off that site but it does make me think about this idea of Opportunities and and how the kind of capitalist road works and that. Desi sense of course there will be demand for at some point that will be demand for luxury item luxury mass luxury protective items. And how that all fits into? I guess what we feel and how we think about the whole situation Jamie I guess. He's actually conner. Speaks to what we talked about last week. Which was the shift in aesthetics change maybe from consumers about how much they want to broadcast the brands that they're wearing or buying because clearly there's an unease about being seen to be you know profiteering from this awful situation and yet it's probably a good thing. If Russian companies and other manufacturers do divert resources to to make mouse. She does also. Is it part of that same? Shift away from this sort of shouting a branding. I mean that's that's kind of a lot of street wear has been built on the right exactly tied up with that we point. We're talking about last week. And people being really dizzy. Sense of not wanting to use State makes status have status symbols at the moment? I think mosques and other medical equipment but I mean particularly moss have these very kind of singular aspect to them where they are. They are just the ultimate hygiene that you know. They're a symbol of hygiene there a symbol of solidarity kind of all in all in this together. And when you wear one it's to protect yourself but it's also protect others added to that that they in short supply in a lot of places and that means that when they become expensive thing. That's the status symbol. It just doesn't see right against the all these other elements because they are ultimately decide. This symbol of protection dot is in short supply. A lot of places but I think we'll it does high into what you're saying about people now being really conscious of law goes anyway and a lot of straight where browns will self from that at the moment And these these issues that the Russian in the White House. Tush industry has where you know. How do you kind of float fashion? How do you sell products in a way? That doesn't feel tone-deaf at the moment But then you know we'll see these browns to make living in the need to Cape Shifting Product Cape workers employed and medical protective equipment. Mawson's I got a lot of brands have capability now. I've been donating a lot of of these kind of products. They can make them so if demand continues going into the future dot also seems just a sensible move. So there's a lot of tied up into these idea it's fascinating stuff Jamie always get your views. That's Monaco's fashion editor. Jamie waters joining us
'Why We Swim' Looks For Answers In People And Places Across The Globe
"And humans came from. Dust says ECCLESIASTES DIS but Bonnie Sui us that humankind also wants sprang from end still seeks. Water why we swim is her latest book which Texas from Ponds Pools to surfers racers and a few who have survived icy currents Bonnie Soy who writes frequently for the New York Times in California Sunday magazine. Join just for more home in Berkeley California. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks so much for having me Scott. You begin with an amazing story about a man whose name I will not chance to even try and say March Eleven nineteen eighty-four what happened on this planet. Good Liquor Thorson. He's an Icelandic fishermen and fishing trawler with his crew. It's calm waters it's cold it's forty one degrees and the boat overturns with forty one degree water within twenty to thirty minutes we die from hypothermia but he did not everyone else did and he ended up swimming six hours and when he finally got to the hospital the doctors weren't able to discern his heartbeat or read his temperature on the thermometer but he didn't show any signs of hypothermia and he was only a little bit dehydrated. He was a strong swimmer certainly but was he also saved by his own biology. He was like the story very much. Because it is this the distillation of what makes swimming so special for humans. We have to learn how to swim. we're not born knowing how to do it instinctively and yet there are sort of traces of that evolutionary past still within us that our evolutionary past that came from the sea and so with good liquor for. Thorson turns out that his body fat was two to three times normal human thickness and more solid and so he resembled a Marine Mammal. More than terrestrial mammal. And that saved him. Did you grow up feeling? Pull into the even. If it was only Jones Beach in New York I did. I mean my family origin story is at my parents met no swimming pool in Hong Kong. We grew up with swimming family and so we grew up at Jones beach in the pool. Lifeguards swim team. I just always remember feeling more comfortable and happy in the water actually than on land. I mean there's just a sense of magic that you get from being in the water and buoyancy that you just don't have on land you in this book talk to swimmers all over the world right nearby you though you you swim San Francisco Bay without a wet suit and there are people including I gather you who believe that's actually good for you in all ways it can be. I mean I have also talked to scientists and researchers who say cardiovascular risk. Don't go into sudden shock cold water because it could stop your heart that aside a wr decided there are benefits to cold water immersion. And there's been quite a bit of research in recent years where your dopamine levels go up in your over time that your cardiovascular system is strengthened and you know there are people there are things that we knew from across cultures around the world that there was a water cure there. Was you know jumping in cold? Water was good for you and jumping in hot water and then jumping into cold water and so we didn't know why exactly in the science kinda starting to catch up. What is this Brown fat you talk about in this book. Well this was really interesting. I did not know about Brown fat until I started swimming with a Dolphin Club swimmers in San Francisco Bay and so I went to ucsf to talk to the foremost researchers in Brown fat and it turns out that mammals are born with two kinds of white fat which we all know about the energy stores of our bodies and Brown fat which actually Burns and produces heat energy. We kind of start to lose it as we get older but there are ways to do what's called the Browning of white fat which is to kind of turn it into energy burning tissue. That fat is called Beige Fat. And so what? Kind of encourages. The development of beige fat is cold water exposure and exercise among other things. But those have been proven to be causing this change in our bodies. Wonder if you have any words for people who aren't able to swim these days you know. The water is a draw for us no matter what and so even if you can't get in the water if you can walk near it can look at. It can see it can You know have some what a wall Nichols calls domestic waters in your house and you know. Take about the shower. Just look at imagery watches surf movie. I mean those things. Make a difference for our souls and our the way our bodies and brains work. Click we respond to those set points in the environment and even if we can't get in the waters right now you know the ocean will be waiting for us. The pools we waiting for us on the other side of this Bonnie Choi. Her book why we swim she in the Water
Science, Interrupted - lives, loves, labs upended by COVID19
"Welcome to science friction on the Tash Mitchell and this is science interrupted and possibly radio interrupted because I have a puppy snoring very audibly and loudly at my fate right now working from home folks. It's tremendously difficult to think of not of not finishing the work. It's tremendously difficult booking with. Todd's is always a race against time as your money formation but the majority of the information are actually Mike. God really this pandemic has swift in Lancaster. Nami hasn't gotten caught us. All by complete surprise wherein collective state of shock really and for many scientists so much at stake use of experiments field work results. Clinical trials patients students the lives of lab animals the consequences for so many Deeply personal and in some cases could affect the lives of thousands of others and other species too so today on the show. Three scientists with three. Clemson's how are you? How are you going? Yeah yeah good bevy. What's been over and I met this morning by spin. Had this zone call with a bunch of other people from Perth and she was basically lap. Hold us on. He's a roller coaster. Look to Paula. Magni won fame lab Australia competition last year. And she's a senior lecturer in forensic science at Murdoch University in Perth at my husband across line pharmacist in Perth so possibly meeting people affected by Kobe. Nine hundred every single day but right now Paul easing Singapore where she also works as deputy dean of Murdoch University's campus there. Her baby daughter with her and Shayna husband don't know when they'll be able to be reunited. He was going to be concerned. Who are going to be concerned as well but this is probably the best option for the moment. We hope that these are going to be only for a while but for the moment it is what it is and not say his daughter for very many many months. Yeah so they can see each other only by by video call. That is a huge gift. Imagine these happening ten years ago or more could be better than years ago but the situation is changing. So much isn't it? It's still very unclear what's going to happen with international flights around the world. Yeah absolutely impossible to make any predictions at the moment. Also because Australia is getting way better especially Western Australia. Because he's very much aware from every everybody else. Singapore is experiencing a second important peak of cases compared to other countries. We are leaving this situation pretty pretty well. Syncopal learned a lot from this SARS situation and we didn't have many cases at all until a few weeks ago when they borders. Were going to be closed. Many people from all over the world wanted to come back to Singapore and they came back or seek your Italian and the saints. Coming out of Italy of Bain very very distressing during this pandemic rot from early on. What does that make food for you and your family in Italy? I speak with them every day and I make sure that they have everything they need. I've managed to the to do online shopping for them from Singapore to have them home. My grandmother she turned ninety seven last week. And the she's safe and sound in a healthcare facility but this is the first time in live in which he doesn't see my mom my Auntie for more than two days in a row and they edge facilities at being locked down so yeah. It's an interesting learning curve for for the family and there's also a big exercise Of Trust for the words day in the facilities Singapore has now gone into a lockdown and polar and colleagues having to move really fast to put their university courses online. She's also supporting students around the world with their projects now influx and Maija grant application processes of import on pause to then this Horon Research. You'll work as a forensic scientist into an expert on many crime scene investigations in Italy. You're now doing forensic science research here in Australia. And you shared this curious photo with me of what you describe as your babies back in the land in Perth in Western Australia. And it had me totally intrigued. What is it a fraud all? So my baby's baby Bob Nichols not people say barnacles as babies about Research I USED NICHOLS FOR CLEVELAND. Investigation when aboard US found in a in aquatic environments in the Ocean. So because bunny goes at annoying. They attach on anything that he's flogging. It is underwater and they stuck on that we can identify what they Ya. So where is the body confront? From how long the bodies in water and also the journey the talk the body from the primary campsie what was dumped in the ocean to the place where the body was found so they can be very interesting but it is not that to do this kind of research. We need to have colonies of Barnacles in in the lab so we keep having them in in Aquaria but the they eat small because Kobe algae so we had to grow the algae as well. You can now go to the supermarket and Buy Balaji and beside that. I work input on seeking to. Malaysia is whether it is the study of insects and we have colonies of flos is in as well is very difficult to keep up with them with the colonies at the moment when a when they laboratories have been shot because often of the issue that is going on. It's incredible work so you've got. These baby barnacles back in the lab in Perth. And will they die because the I guess? Barnacles barnacles one concern but there are labs all over the world with experimental animals of all shapes sizes and varieties and species from Retz to mice and onwards barnacles to that possibly going to be compromised or cold. Because of this global shutdown. I will say maybe the research would be compromised. The life of the of the animal is probably not because all the university have the ethical necessity of looking after all the animals that they have so all. The university have in place measures to look after all the animals in the different labs. I was a bit dramatic because I miss my babies. I guess when I think about my Banoco sometimes you feel like what he's the. Utd All my job in the big scheme in the big picture of things really for researchers. Like me probe's is a big wakeup call about the the importance of your search but at the same time that the world is big and many other things are important on a different scale. So I remember the first had with Bundy cars and the head. The mother of this guy that was found on the shore there was crying on this loss and I was the only personal gather information that could give a piece bring justice to this family bring closure to the victim so these another victim.

Floppies: The Disks that Changed the World
"Jordan Montana is a pack rat. He's the creator of games like karate and the Prince of Persia and he meticulously saved everything along the way journals sketches and storyboards all of it so it came as a bit of a shock to him when he couldn't find something he'd saved and that something was a pretty big deal back in two thousand two magner was working on Prince of Persia the sands of time. The programmers wanted to add the classic version of the game to their playstation two update as an Easter Egg. So they asked him for the original source code but when magner looked in his archives he couldn't find it. He searched everywhere the source code that he'd written on his old apple to the cody was positive. He saved had vanished fast forward. Ten years mechanisms. Dad is cleaning house and buried at the back of a closet is a ratty looking shoebox holding a bunch of dusty old three and half inch floppy disks one is labeled Prince of Persia Source Code Copyright Nineteen eighty-nine and in brackets in all caps. The word original the long lost code found at last it had sat in that box for a quarter century before being unearthed like some archaeological discovery. But this was two thousand twelve. How would he be able to get it off? Those old discs and with the data still be intact. Was it in fact too late to save his work saving our work these days? It often happens. Automatically with programs regularly pushing stuff into the cloud. We don't worry about manually savings anymore. In fact a whole new generation doesn't even know what that save icon represents side note. It is not a vending machine but for many decades saving storing and transferring. Our data had to be done using some physical media when the personal computing revolution took off which we heard about in our last episode on the Altar Eight hundred. There was one piece of technology that became synonymous with saving the floppy disk. It seems so simple. Now but floppies change the course of our history because they helped turn microcomputers into personal computers. I'm surrounded Barak and this is command. Line Heroes Unoriginal podcast from that HAP. Let's put a pin in Jordan Lechner's floppy disk discovery for a moment. Welcome back to it first. Though I want to learn how the floppy disk was born in the first place and how it became such a crucial part of the TECH WORLD FOR ALMOST FORTY YEARS. Our first stop eighteen ninety. Before electronic computers existed there were electrical mechanical computing devices and the method forgetting data in and out of them was through punchcards the size of a dollar bill when electrons computers came along in the fifties. Ibm standardized those punch cards with eighty and twelve roads. A punched hole would form one type of character. No whole meant another for a long while. Those Punch cards were the main method for data input but handling hundreds of cards for bigger. More complex programs was hugely cumbersome. There had to be a better way to save and transfer information next up paper tape which came along in the nineteen fifties to hear how paper tape played a central role in the origin of personal computing. Listen to our last episode. Paper tape had the same punched hole method of reading data as punch cards. Because it's all one tape. No one had to worry about getting cards mixed up it could carry more. Data was much faster to us but as many computers grew in capacity they needed more and more tape to store programs like punch cards. Paper tape eventually met its limit. Enter MAGNETIC TAPE. The key ingredient was mylar a tough flexible material coated with magnetic oxide to make the tape recordable nine tracks could store up to one hundred seventy five megabytes per tape. That was a big deal in fifties and sixties magnetic tape drives of ten and a half inch. Wheels became standard issue for businesses. But the problem take is that it's great for moving large chunks date of one place to another. It's really hard to search on them to find anything in particular when we would install software on our mini computers in mainframes using tate. But it really wasn't that good for anything small and portable or if we wanted to do anything interactive on our with our data that Stephen Vaughan Nichols contributing editor at CBS interactive sure. Magnetic tape could store a lot more data. He was too big and swallow. It was only practical for the mainframe world really again. There had to be a better way and that better way came along in Nineteen fifty-six when launched its very first decide drive the IBM three fifty disk storage unit. It was a component of the three or five ramic mainframe computer a machine that filled an entire room. Here's Dave Bennett. A former IBM disk and storage product engineer. There was storage in core memory. In fact the disk storage device of which ramic was the first was a storage device that permitted random access to give on record as opposed to a tape. Drive interesting thing. That disk drive. Almost didn't see the light of day because it threatened. Ibm's punch-card business but the project was eventually approved. Problem was the drive contained. Discs made of solid metal ramic literally. Wait a ton it had to be moved with forklifts and transport it by large cargo. Not the most convenient storage method but out of that came a better solution of a floppy disk was originally developed for new need and the reason was that there was an intermediate kind of storage originally. There was a computer code and then there was the computer memory. The working memory but with system three sixty there was a new class of memory in between which they called firmware and in system three sixty there was unique technology for the firmware in various forms it was either a special kind of punched card or there was a thing called. Transformer read only storage but the new need was the desire to go from these technologies two semi conductor technology in the days when semiconductor technology was volatile. That means that the memory in semiconductors went away when the power was removed so there had to be a way of recharging bringing the program back into that memory when the power was restored for loading what was called a micro program or that intermediate memory and the need for such a device is what caused the development of the floppy disk dryer so in nineteen sixty seven. A small team of engineers led by David. Noble started developing an inexpensive system for loading those micro-programmes into mainframe computers. The code name for their project was Minna. Noble personally went through all the things that he could think of including various forms of punched cards including use of tape cassettes. And I don't know what else he went through but he hit on the idea of using an inexpensive form of this based on a flexible disc very inexpensive read only mechanism. The Minnow team wanted to be able to mail their micro-programme to various locations. That needed to load it. So the product for sending that program around had to be durable enough to fly through the mail without having its data damaged some kind of casing now what they actually had to do. In order to make it maleable was they decided to put it in a plastic container that was fairly rigid and they would actually read and write the disk while. I was inside of this plastic container like an envelope of plastic envelope. And when you have a coating on a disk and a rigid head you're going to have where and when you have where you have where particles and the problem they had was that as the were particles built up it's kind of caused an avalanche effect. The particles would act as additional abrasive. And then pretty soon with the particles being loose in there. You're where the recording track out and didn't work anymore. So a really smart guy that was on that program men name. Her Thomson came up with a plan that was based on a household dusting fabric that three m soul to housewives for dusting their furniture and he put a sheet of that in there between the envelope and the disk and that material picked up the were particles and they embedded themselves in that fabric and prevented the avalanche effect and really saved the

"I worked at the Washington Post for almost a decade and everything that meant from the grounding I got from the phenomenal editors George Salomon to working when I was I was twenty one years old. And there was Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser and Christine Brennan and Thomas Boswell an and Jubair and those are the people I went to work and saw every day and they're just legends in the Journalism Sports Journalism Business So so being able to learn. Have that grounding in really doing things that were always me about doing things. The Right Way Being a beat reporter which by the way I hated and do when I got out of journalism school because I was like I want to raise future. I WANNA do projects I WANNA know. Whatever and I had very smart people older than me. Who Said Kid you know? Go learn covering a beat is lake so you can know how to develop relationships over the course of a year where you have to both the liver and cover the tough stories. Ask the hard questions but also be able to come back the next day and be responsible for what you say and right so that you can feel that even if it's something someone didn't like you were fair and and that way you can sort of face them the next day and that's an important part of what I do right now also. I learned to write on deadline. I was a hockey writer at the Washington Post. They started out you write a deadline story where the score is one zero. That's running that you have to file as soon as the game ends before you can get any quotes and by the way. Can you give me twenty inches on that You definitely learn to do things quickly and in a different way and that really helped me to with the writing. I do every day on the show right and some of it is as I said breaking news and I'm writing in the commercial breaks or I'm writing up until the last second because to me. That's just that's just daily practice. Because I did it for years interviewing something sort of big picture stuff is something. I did insert later jobs When I was working for. Espn making that transition to television. There's a lot of how do I bring my writing skills to TV? Which is something that is a big part of the job may be more so than some of the other shows Eddie. Espn it was covering the big picture league stuff like the NBA. The NFL the weekly Games. That I did to the NFL. Where I would do start for sports center and I was just talking about this with some of our producers the other day You know they were years. I was based out of New York where there'd be big football games right and it would be a giants cowboys game. Jimmy remember giants. Cowboys was a big matchup. Right I do. I do comparing it to the Knicks. Though the giants cowboys is still a big deal in New York. I'll say all right so anyway but yeah so I'd be stationed out a giants for a week. Right and Edward or would be stationed a cowboys for a week. And we'd spend a week finally daily stories to sportscenter about like. Oh here's the Eli manning versus the cowboys. Db's matchup for something. Like that. And then it would just be this. You know sort of built this blockbuster. Game on Sunday now in those examples. Fox's getting the rating bright for that game but we're talking about how we can kind of use the jump to build some of the storylines that will go into our Saturday night games right something like that. So little bit is like building these storylines of the NBA and my experience in that coming in When I left. Espn to go to Turner and CNN. my own show on CNN and CNN obviously is not as heavy a sports network in fact obviously news network had Topic specific shows so Sanjay Gupta had health show and I I had a sports show and crossfire was sort of the more heavy politics. Show as opposed to just news information and stuff like that There's an entertainment show that like that But it was still trying to deliver that to a CNN. So during that time it was a lot of. Hey can you translate this issue to give it the larger context in society? What is this really about right? What does it mean? What sort of the larger conversation going on here whether it's something as straightforward as the bring rice relation which is obviously about domestic violence and kind of how we treat women and children and laws and and who to believe in and all of that in our society to You know things that were simpler sort of more fun raid on Sports. Is this big tent. We all gather in not. Everybody watches the same movies anymore the same TV shows but sports we a lot of US watch the same. Sporting events took wait praise to have all these conversations. We do that on the jump on the sideline reporter TNT and got to be part of those broadcasts around the inside the NBA guys and sometimes jump on that show or sometimes jump in host on NBA TV and a very different perspective than ESPN Da much looser right. Show show ethos that. They subscribed raid. They have less tight to the rundown about discussion More about letting things just sort of go in crazy directions. Obviously if you have Shaquille O'Neal Charles Berkeley you have to subscribe. But it was definitely education for me right and then also you know the value of big personalities and and getting to sort of really take people inside where it was like for those players and people and all of those different things for all of those different years. I mean I've been covering the am one way or another two decades. I've had nearly every job there is to have bring the NBA We get to do now on the jump and it Kinda makes us Nimble enough that You know when the when the Dallas Mavericks situation went down and I had spent months sort of talking on and off the Mark Cuban about doing an interview I was ready to do that interview and I got the report. I think. Two hours before the Interview so it was really just and it was a I. I don't have a number in front of me but it was dozens and dozens of pages of legal stuff to go through And again that kind of went back to my hard news. Journalism background of highlighting circling. And all of that and being able to on the fly over the course of an hour to me really felt like a parse a lot of the stuff that was going on in that with Mark Cuban and made it in an interview that Soak into me. Because I had some of the women in The Dallas Mavericks Organization. Come back to the afterward and honestly of all the people of all the reactions that was one of the most meaningful because they just said. Hey you ask the questions. We've been trying to ask for years and so being able to do that was great. Also being able to show all about the most disrespectful dunks of all time is awesome and feeds into my sense of humor and things that I wanna do and stuff that I really encourage the staff. We have goofy photoshop. We have all of that stuff to me is what's so much fun about sports and fun about the NBA. You mentioned being distracted by from Corona virus and Super Tuesday. People are looking for that. I'm looking for that so I'm weren't that stuff in there too. So the fact that we've been able to dislike crazy stew is a very long answer to your short question but I do consider myself a little bit of everything in the show a little bit of everything and it's a fun way to sort of put a bow on all the stuff that I spent years.

"We taped one on Monday with Andrew. Marchena The New York Post to break down the Tony Romo Contract Tony staying with CBS NOT GOING ESPN. So if you haven't listened to that you can dip into the archives and check that out this episode features an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols and We talked to her about hosting the jump in a variety of topics including the Spike Lee. New York Knicks feud and interview process and several other things so Tony Romo podcast from Monday. We taped it is out in the archives and then This episode here Rachel Nichols will get into it. Right now on the media. Podcast you joining me now. I guess that's been in the works for a long time and we are finally doing it from ESPN's the jump. Rachel Nichols Rachel. How are you thank you so much for having me my pleasure like I said we? We've been going back and forth on this for a long time. I'm glad it's so funny because I actually saw a tweet from you yesterday. That kind of took too. I was taken aback by it when you said that there's only six weeks left basically in the NBA season that little by right the NBA season. I think now is what four hundred days out of the three hundred sixty five days a year. It's always said we got through six the regular season as you and I talk. I feel like the jump has contributed a little bit to the fact that the has now like you said four hundred days a year. 'cause you you know in the off season when there's free agency and Trades and trash-talking and all that stuff going on you guys are there and you're getting all the people that fans WanNa hear from for sure so we've kind of grown together. When the show started it was supposed to be a seasonal show and in fact our first season it was a seasonal show. Just sort of from a little bit before training camp to a little bit after. I don't even remember. I don't think we went into free agency. I think it was a little bit after the draft. I'd have to look back to double check. But that's my memory and then of course now you couldn't do basketball shorts. You didn't include free agency in Yeah I think it's all kind of cyclical there was more going on. We did more that may have created a low more disgusting. There you go did you did you know. Did you think the jump would be as popular as it's been obviously like you said it has grown and I think it's become one of those shows that fans really enjoy But did you expect it to become what it's become honestly? I'm so excited when I hear someone like you say it's popular people are watching it because when you're doing it you're just sort of in the studio right or maybe sometimes a games in your in your little world or bubble of Reno or any all these places that I've spent the last two decades and sometimes it's hard to tell It resonates a lot in my little bubble because I talked to basketball players all day. But it's it's sometimes hard to tell how much it sort of hanging out with the radar to the outside world so I get excited every time we get a little hint from someone that that it is making an impact beyond our circle obviously producers you have co hosts You're the face of the show. How much say do you have in the show? Are you a big part of the planning? And the what goes into. You know who you're going to have on interviews ordeal leave that up to the producers. How much hands in it. Yeah No. It's a big team effort and we all have a big say because we're kind of small group The show really has grown from something pretty small. We were a.

You know but he likes it he just he puts that out there and I think that's one the big lessons I've really learned from him. Is is a man you know you you. You're the one that's responsible for your own attitude and you're the one the slop over your own outcomes and yet yeah Jeff. I don't know if you've seen the have you seen the Vietnam Kim Burns documentary now that I've seen baseball civil war. I'm not saying that it's amazing. It will it. It is the guy we're talking about John. Lewis Graham was a A Marine who got shot three times Vietnam and he was he was like basically basically the the spotlight in the Ken Burns Documentary and then we cut. Yeah and then come to find out. He lives twenty miles south of I mean he's just he's a fantastically interesting man. I mean he came back in a really involved in the antiwar movement here Kansas rant and like I said and just his perspective on on life and especially considering everything he's been through it just it's absolutely phenomenal and he's just like I said he's a He's one of those people. I think everybody can can learn something from it. I I know he's taught me a lot. Yeah we we've asked the point for us as Veterans Ri- light. It's the process even the process of learning. It doesn't end like we're talking about. Hey Craig training programs great process a compliment process of selection judge. When you get out now what are we have we got either? You'RE GONNA complain or you have a process that enriches yours and other people's lives. Ask The vast I AH I. I'm trying to catch that freshman class because yes I'm talking training. I'm talking personal responsibility. That ability that demand in the team's and then the extension is family. Life right creates a much bigger picture than training but again my my pedestal might opet is away well and if you can get that down though you know what I'm saying if you can lock down your physical fitness you can lock down these programs and one completing your programs are not easy man. I mean they're not they're not. They're not they're not easy programs. They're fucking hard. Yeah of course there. Yeah and the ESA es La Bud vase like Jesus Christ. Yeah they're hard programs man and one. I don't what you you gotta be honest with yourself on your programs to this. Real Accountability needs to to get the best outcome. Yeah you have to be honest with yourself but to if if you crush one of your programs man and you can head into like when I tell people the goal for any type of selection process is when you get off that plane or when you get off that a bus or you get out of that car whatever if you get out of that and you say man all my bills are paid. I'm physically fit. I'm mentally doing okay. I got a book with me to read in my spare time. I'm good to go you can if you can get off. Whatever you're doing with just having a regular other day you're usually going to be set up for success and I think that's why you're programs are so important because it's just like I said I? It's it's really cool. One one the obviously the programs are built the way they are but to You're one of the few people I know who live feeds and actually I was so impressed with you. You would like get up and actually like doc show different like actually showed differ. Move One where you're talking about grip yours ripping out here griffin here griffin here in actual bio mechanics of it and I was like man that that forty five seconds speech right. There was a ninety minute lecture somewhere along the way and people don't they don't grasp that. Yeah and that's why I think that's I think that's that's what's happening right now is that there's parts that statement Einstein said that if you can't take your complex subject explain it in a short time right and and then there's much more to that right lanes it's just not that simple but the point is is that with a real understanding something like 'cause people asking a cow. Hey how can I audit audits. Someone's knowledge or the key of e an athletic trainer strength and it's there's nothing I can really say because basically interrogation arrogation point yet. I don't mean that may be asked to validate someone's knowledge base and I think that's what my goal is. My primary goal is to not oversimplify but put in a context. That people can actually learn in Nashville. I say like instagram whatever. It is as far as I'm concerned. That's a cost among people to approach it that way like I'm not a person -ality certain lot not people do emulate not my intention when I do I appreciate. It's very flattering number. One but the best thing I can offer this world is knowledge college in its sinologist and gives me by people who really cared for me cared about me unchain enough about me to give me to help me to share with we are at the end of the day whether we're parents or teachers like we're teaching our kids we're teaching our friends Example on and that's the thing is no one's asking anyone being angel right. Metaphorically guess is that Dan Might WanNa we're world. We.

"Good morning and welcome to the Kensington Corner. I am Jeff. I'm Tom Today. We are lucky enough to have Jeff Nichols former navy seal performance I founder exercise physiologists theologist and a graduate from university in two thousand and two with us today. Jeff I want to say I honor but second. I don't think we'll you probably know because is your instagram. But how big of a cult following you have man i. It's insane. Yes cotton You know it's very humbling to me because has a story. I guess this is probably a good segue like people will wonder how I came up with the name. Occasionally right in it was just this Kinda I. I just laughed my previous business that I was calling her four and just felt pretty unfulfilled because in a sense like that facilities still exists. Now on the coaches are still there and they focus on youth. Athletes do such a great job of it. I just really had a calling still the same way that I joined the service service Alexa just felt like I had this information. Technology share with tactical population law enforcement police so on mowing the yard and I'm just frustrated so frustrated traded with like what it is and I had this thought my head. It's like just one. Everything focused on performance. I kind of how it will happen. I mean this was never my intention truly. I never really thought I could. House career let alone monetize Training in the way that I do in to the point where I can a lifestyle so I really really fortunate to our grant. I had amazing teachers along along the way but I never intended on being this way. I got so many people that really care. That's what's really great amounts military while forcing inquires the vast majority of folks really do care about their job a really do inherently in so. I think that that's created a inner jenner against an online relationship with you will is so many people doubts on. I guess like the way I deliver information so very much appreciative about i. I would say and I said this before. We started recording. When you talk about right now as far as the pinnacle where guys are really going to I? It's you guys over at thirteen bars. You know and and I when we we push out your guys as programs I mean I cannot tell you one telling you know when I when I led our group know that you we're coming on there's about seven or eight guys there that have already doing your programs especially the hypertrophy one and it is It it's it's so funny to me the Colt following that I see you know and but the thing is that one of those programs where they work you know and there there. I don't they think the difference between you guys that I see from all the other fitness stuff on instagram. which is such a crowded market is that they don't feel cookie cutter you know you they? They're actually feels like there's some thought going into it and the one thing I'll say about your brand that I loved most is that and I told Jeff this right before you got on. I was like dude. You could watch one. His life feeds and come away exhausted. From how much knowledge this guy is pushing out and I'm not sure that people in us being a little older with science backgrounds as well I think that for for us we can kinda dissect it and be like. Wow but I don't think people realize in these live feeds how much information when you're really putting down. I think that you know there's a couple of things on along. That statement is that the first is that I'm forty one years old and I. I've immersed myself in this In this profession even when I was in the teams for eleven years is this. It's always been beyond a hobby for me. It's been a real passion because just fascinated how the human body works dot. You know the United States all the time like we you have your despite the flatter ridiculousness we've put people on get in. We did that with very concise mathematics. A you granted the human body is incredibly Nevis. And we're not like I'm Saints Very Agile Mobile and we're not exactly meet Hannity direct like we are machine but in terms of simple as like how does the by set contract and how do we create more force. Those are those are fundamental laws of physiology by mechanics. We no longer have to make make up things we don at all in so. That's why just scratched my head in the amount of misinformation shared it None of quality information that good coaches and trainers will disseminate weather. Social Media in person is really overshadowed by the lack of real autry Being as the point is like I am good at facts and the reason why is because one hundred percent programs rams are derived from bio-mechanics visits right in so I don't have to gas. It just takes a long time to write a program. I the first program aerob- rope. It took me ninety six hours to write. It took me seventy hours just to do the math yet. And it was just because I had I want something like you said that it might subtle one hundred percent of the time because it has to. It's mathematically driven so I think that that's what Pe- the best of the tax for space right we're dealing explosives you're dealing skydiving. You're doing tax extra Precision in that community really demands and deserves physician so so I felt like I owed it to them to give something they themselves than could enjoy vast some knowledge into they can look at it and if they wanted to do the math they they could if they wanted if they didn't WanNa do. The math still can exactly well. I kind of choose your own adventures kind of try to create will so you know. And that's the one thing I keep hearing. Is this this idea of community and that its community driven in. I mean honestly to me. It's like that's like a very symbiotic relationship correct as a trainer right you couldn't have picked better communities be interacting with whether it be military law enforcement fire because like you said they're vested interest in so taking that level physical excellence and you know to be able to perform their jobs. The highest standard got my youngest brother. He's a firefighter here. One of the suburbs of Kansas City. And that's that's one of the things I know. He constantly focuses on as you know the idea that to be the best at his job. It demands ends. You know it demands a level of physical fitness in. Excellence that young you really do. I mean you have to dedicate yourself to that if you want to be the pit year game you you bet they just think that as much as I love for them I love appreciate Agus. The purity of what sport is before entertaining came in human idiocy sprinkled in there right but I love four and it's not that they don't deserve you know the attention the accolades and the coaches That's a looking at. The talks will silent going well. What Obama is massively under service ovulation? That really likes. Let's get beyond the cliches folks. These people were this. This country specifically could not function in a safe manner without them right in this country can vary very efficiently. Survive without sport flew in my opinion they deserve serve. There's no other population on planet that deserves quality concise truthful information when it comes to their self preservation preservation. The brothers and sisters next. That's the facts. Never get away snap because they deserve it more than anyone planning now. I one hundred percent agree agree with that. I think that's actually a good point because I don't think One a lot of times when we were talking about misinformation. I think that it's it's a little different because when you look at how easy it is now to Attain personal training certificate. And how. Oh He's it is to kind of just put that information out in the space and when you have guys like you Kinda have to wade through that. I think. That's what draws me me to talk to you more than anything because you can actually sit down with you and tell you give a shit about the community that you're talking to when your own life when you're answering stuff and you're you're talking about law enforcement your talk. There was one episode. I was watching. A guy was asking you about Rocking and talking about the hits and you were talking about stretches to do afterwards words and things the amount of prep that I think comes back and you said your forty one the experience but the amount of experience that you put in to your a craft. I think that's what wows me more than anything because they're so much thought. That goes behind what you're doing and I it's it actually bewilders me because I tried to kind of think that way too but the amount of preparation that goes into your programs I think that I it it's fascinating uh-huh type of Sometimes can bite off more than you can chew. And here's another. I mean by that. Is that like I feel like I can concise. They articulate what I'm trying to do right I would have an NFL claritin. I guess real thorough. So how do I take back. Thoroughness run S.. Put It in a PDF guide people. So it's like okay now. There's a big gap as a really big gap and information so that that's why that's that's why my website is created from the video sample rights like okay. There's a stopgap in the middle. The now people don't have time can't afford whatever it is to Siemian Ersan. I'd that's my extension yet and I think that that's what people are hungry for. They're hungry for the spectrum just in the same way that hungry for longtime communication like. We're doing doing now. They're tired of the buzzfeed tired of Cliche. There today are because why because we've gone through that for the decades as yet it now or two point especially coming off of a over a decade of conflict that may have been deeply entrenched in now it's like licking our wounds. The heal up. Because what's going to happen. We're GONNA you know the next generation will not our next with Upcoming generation is going to have to go back to Syria Syria Iran or some other shit country in deal with the nonsense that our government is creating so like but on the standpoint of this is I i what a great purpose. What a great process of holistically affecting these individuals? It's like the freshman class of the football team affect them the best because some points Riley. Talk about You know what's the character the team or This it's like you're never gonNA trae eight a real process on unless you affect the youngest generation and and and how do I. How do I know that this is true? This is true in every selection process process military in the world is because it's indoctrination right that real deep indoctrinated ages right and who are the gatekeepers. How's it been through it right? Not Politicians not teachers not not atmospheric trainers like real professionals are the gatekeepers and I think that fitness needs to be set up that way too in the same way you stay in college efforts right. The gatekeeper are the people that are entrusted by the university by the team coach. It's like I'm just I'm just over the fact that people can can get that two or three day cert now. They are considered experts.

"Nichols. I am the proud Mama. Bear of a ten year old Trans Kid and I am a fierce opposition kits and ally to the Trans Community and I have a fundraising project called the Trans Love Project where I raise funds for. Lgbt organizations awesome. I'm so excited you're here today so that we can chat about all that you do and your story. I wanted for having me. Yeah of course I want to start by talking about win your son. I don't want to mention his name if you're not okay with that Protect his identity. So I I WanNa talk about when he came to you and I said Hey mom I think I'm trans like tell us that story and how you felt when that happen. Sure so for him because he came out so young it was not as cut and dry I think as some other conversations that trans kids have with their appearance on. He started showing a pretty fierce rejection to everything. We we label is female gendered from such a young age. I mean he was two to three years old when he was really showing signs of just liking everything in the boy quote unquote sector and things like that. So it was kind of a combination of Discussions and observations and as a parent. I really went through. I think a lot of US parents of trans kids go through the phases of well. He must be a tomboy. Or you know. Maybe he'll be a lesbian and we have this whole process for ourselves. That wasn't until he was about six that he really started to begin having the language and even then we kind of needed help from a medical professional to help us both understand the language so it was a combination Like I said with a medical professional that kind of helped us to really identify what was going on and For me it was a reaction of mostly fear in the beginning because of all the hate that we hear about towards the Trans Community and it was just this reaction like oh my Gosh. I went way too big with What this was going to look like I went way too. Big just imagining all the worst Took me a little while to really understand it myself and research and reach out to other parents of trans kids especially online goodness for the Internet in this day and age so it was a process. I mean it it was. It was really a process in the beginning of just understanding. So there wasn't any one moment. There were many moments of impact. And but you know all good and all very beneficial and just led me to this beautiful education but there were some ups and downs in the beginning just because it was really a lack of understanding for me but for him it was just the this magic of changing his name and his pronouns and it was magic. He went from very side. Shy Self. Harming child to one. That was magnus net magnificent and happy and well adjusted and and sure of himself and confidential. So on for me. That's all that mattered was that he was happy. Then that makes me so happy because I run into a lot of people who they appearance like mine now. My father is gone. He has been gone since before. Transitioned but I basically other than my grandfather have lost all my my blood family and it was due to being trans and I didn't come out until I was thirty and I always knew something was different but I just didn't have a very supportive family so it makes me happy when I hear a younger trans people come out. And they have supportive families I know I have a trans brother-in-law and he's only fifteen and although his mom is okay with me he she is not okay with him being trained and she's not to him Shooting I I have known him since he was about eleven and at that time he already You know said that you know he identified as a boy I tried to talk her into you. Know putting him on hormone blockers and things like that because he he had just started. I think or or was about to just start You know female puberty and He hit his mom just went into lower so it it hurts because she doesn't you know he now he's fifteen so you know he's growing A chest and You know things are happening that he is causing him severeness foreign. He's he such a sad kid. He stays in his bedroom all the time. He's you know he's depressed I don't know if you sell farms because he's always Covered up you know. He always you know he's an full full clothing So it makes me happy to hear when there are support appearance out there For the transient. Because I think that's it's so important because the stats show that you know. The youth are more likely to self harm or commit suicide if they don't have a loving in supporting family presence I'm not a not just the thing right like first and foremost. I'm so sorry that you experienced that types that type of rejection and I know just because I I I know you and I know your fiance and I know that you've you've found a chosen family which to me chosen family. Because I've had to do the same thing dillon. I have had to create our own chosen family. We lost a lot of friends and family so but I can't identify with how that seals as a child should be rejected. And so I'm so sorry that that was your reality and it makes me so sad. I I will never understand that And for your brother-in-law's well it. It's it's very sad to me. And that's why such a visible public advocate and an ally activists because I hope to reach these parents that I mean listen. I was one of those parents in the beginning. I didn't get any of this. I was a I. Don't have a liberal household. I was raised in a conservative Republican household. I was raised with privilege. I was raised with a huge lack of diversity. I mean I didn't have a it makes me laugh when people say that. This is some sort of a liberal agenda. I don't even know what that means. You know so i. I have a hard time when I was one of those parents. That didn't understand this but when you hear these statistics that you just mentioned when you when you see the hurt when you see your child hurting how can you not do everything in your power to learn and educate yourself. That's something that that's one reason why I'm here. That's one reason why I'm an advocate. That's one reason. Why the voice because if I can reach other parents like yours and you know like your in-laws if I can reach those parents and say listen you know? Just listen to your child. Just listen I mean it's not that hard and this journey I think for so many of us as parents were scared of what all this beans and we we. We don't lean into it when we when we should. We have to lean into who our children are instead of who we design them to be in this manufacturer fantasy of ours. It's you know it's not that hard disturbing these beautiful. If you allow it to be so I. I'm sorry that that was your reality but just know you know. Obviously there are appearance that are fighting to change the narrative. Yeah and there are. There are a lot of people out there that You know have Trans Children or may be trans himself That are you know fighting for that and I do See that out in our community and It's just hard You know when Late I talked about it. recently That my grandma was my best friend grind. I was raised a lot of my life by my grandma and She just she she's just has never been able to accept it in the last four years. And it's gotten to the point now where I do talk to my grandpa because he is accepting on me but I just don't I just don't talk to her Because it was causing too much hurt and In a heartache. On my end and it's very hard for me to not understand why you were my you know. Guardian Angel in a lot of really you know when I was a child and because I'm finally choosing to live my life the way I've always seen myself in you you know you're not very accepting and it makes me question. Why parents do that if you're I mean she she's not technically my mom. She's my grandma but she was like my mom growing up and I just. It's hard to understand when I do see people like you and your son and how Warm and welcoming you are with him and and although I'm sure you struggle in the beginning you expected that especially you know with the older generation. I expect that But just you know you win and learned an educated yourself where like my grandma has not done that. Even if I have provided her the resources right learn about it I think the like you stated. The first thing she was was concerned with was how society would see me. I don't think she ever realized You know how she sees me in some of the things that she has said and some of the things I've heard other Trans folks and trains youth Say that their family members have said JUST BREAKS..

I just it's been so long that we were just saying beforehand like it's you've lived a whole Jimmy Butler, experience and bang. Speaking spoken to you four we jump into that real quick. I wanna get I wanna get an update. The last time we talked to you was back in the spring. When Bill Walton stolen of your pictures off your wall has he returned that. Not. And because he is irreplaceable. The photo is replaceable or our show has no budget. I can't decide which it is nothing has been put on the wall. I did make him. I tell you sign the wall where he was like, we gotta leave something there. And that has just been there. I will say we were able to get a couple of those like potted point setters for the set is it point setup Setia. I want people listening to know it's Christmas. Because apparently, that's how every television show tells you it's Christmas. Dammit, we have points that a no photo back in the spot the Bill at the photo. But we have said so clearly work it put a frame around. But yeah, let the cast about Jimmy Butler because we talked about it a lot when it happened, but we didn't have young. And the biggest question is. I mean, obviously, it all it was all kind of a whirlwind. And you went interviewed him in Minnesota. And before you interviewed him he did his on the alpha. You guys need me to win practice. Did you did you feel at any point? Like he was using your ESPN to like get his weird message out there. It was just such a weird story. Here's their whole canal. Gee, what happens? So we I'm Jimmy since his rookie year. We talk a lot. We had talked through the summer. And of course, the story leaks out that he wants to trade and the first thing. I do because I'm the big J journalist check with him. Hey, Jimmy, come on. Joe talk about this. Not yet not yet. And we talk a few more time sort of through the following week. Jimmy wanna come out and publicly talk about this not yet not yet. So the week before all that happened. He was actually in Los Angeles. And we had talked about him coming to the set the jump and actually coming on the show on Thursday. We had started to have that set up. And then as that was the night before his agent kind of win that they were talking about trade to Miami. Right. And if you look back like that's where that whole talk heated up that he was gonna get traded to Miami. And they're like we don't want to come on the set if the trait happens, and we don't want to do anything to ruin it. And it got to the point where over the weekend of that that weekend. There was it was so hot and heavy. It was kind of big before like, oh, all they're doing their necks changing medicals deals almost done and then the deal falls apart rate. So by Sunday morning deal falling apart and Jimmy goes bras back in Minnesota and Monday. Hey, I guess he needs with kids in Minnesota. And that they feel like I'm not trading. You you're gonna have to come back to practice. We're gonna stop calling this like what do they call it? The first couple of weeks his training camp like hand injury or something recovering. Right. So basically by Monday afternoon or evening, you know, this whole process, right? I have been checking in with me. Like, hey, are we gonna come down and interview and Miami like what are what are we going to do this because he hasn't spoken publicly at all since the spring since the wolves have been eliminated from the playoffs..

"So even say last year when people were in calves they're going to be in the finals again. Yes. The warriors and Cavs were in the final again, but how both of those teams got there. We've completely unexpected on so many counts, and all of the things that have been in the middle of that season to a bunch of different teams, whether it was little when I'm with the rockets or when on with anybody who's hose me, they could have predicted that tunnel gate scandal between kissing clippers right in the secret tunnel and all of that fun sort of blown out of proportion stuff or the the more serious. But equally weird, Twitter controversy with Brian collage wellness, any sisters or all the different things in the NBA that I mean, there's just so much craziness and so many stories this ten and still have ten, ten more leftover. People would be like, how could you not say those were the ten craziest stories and the NBA. And I think that that's what's so fun about the league right now is there's so much stuff. We're no one's going to know what happens on the court and off the court and the Lakers both on the court and off the court are gonna fall into that this year. We have no idea what this team is going to be how well it's going to work is on courts that's going to work is LeBron going to be as patient as he says that he wants to be right now is Lance which lends Stevenson we getting, you know, sort of how the west shakeout and who makes the play offs. I mean, what happens? Jimmy Butler in Minnesota is a little bit of a butterfly fact to a lot of the teams that are in that second, you know four through eight, four through ten spot in the west of who makes the play offs and who. Doesn't. I'm excited because you know anytime someone like LeBron makes a big move like this is just creates more variables. I think variables part of what sells the NBA ritual Nichols is the host of ESPN 's the jump. As she mentioned on this podcast, she is a big part of NBA countdown. We don't want any strife here.

Is that sake and for the twelve people from those organizations that I'll listen to this, I want to give out to, you know, I know. Is that or real? No, it's real in all in all seriousness and no bullshit aside. The athletic has been incredible in terms of giving me and I'm sure every other person who works there, creative freedom, and Rachel, you've been to Toronto enough to know how great the people are appear. Rogers Roeder's could not have been better from. I mean, they've literally helped me move to a new country, so no matter how this how this adventure ends. I can never honestly repay them. They've been incredible. And that really more speaks to just the people in the city than anything else you've been around many times. You're very familiar with former NHL beat writer, washing capital beat writer at the Washington Post for three years. I spent much time in candidates around on the big fan and I was just say, yeah, I believe you when you say you like to run away, believe you when you say like the epic, it doesn't all have to be like fake for the media, right? Like like, sometimes you dig the people in the situation. You're in genuinely, dig it here. We're having fun. It's true. I mean, there's enough people. I really.
