Lake Erie's Revenge: The Cleveland Browns Date With AFC Destiny
"Thanks for joining me. Man going to be on with ov pablo jake. Trotter covers the cleveland browns for espn and before that you reported on the big twelve and followed baker mayfield's meteoric rise. So you live in cleveland. I live in cleveland. I live about five miles away from the browns training facility in berea. Ooh so listen you are right at the heart of everything you cover the browns. I want to understand what does winning this first. Playoff game. twenty six years doing it against is truly hated. Enemy in the pittsburgh steelers. What does it do for a city after two decades of being like generally humiliated. How would you describe the energy. Jake in cleveland right now. Yeah i would describe it as one of the greatest moments in the history of the city. And i'm not just talking about football. I'm talking about all moments. If you talk to people who grew up your they would say that sunday one of the happiest days of their lives sunday night after that win you could hear fireworks going off around cleveland. I don't know who has fireworks in the middle of january but people have them. Apparently people were driving up and down. Their streets warns it was a very exciting night. For cleveland and one that they've been waiting for for twenty six years and really forever considering how dominated they have been by the steelers over the years. Yes i'm looking at a list of things. Actually jake that happened in nineteen ninety four when the browns won their last playoff game. Turns out the number one on the billboard charts. Was the sign by ace of base. Is that all sound right to you. In terms of how did all of this has been feeling. Yeah i've been doing this all year checking what songs were number one at a time. The browns headache milestone. I know that when they were foreign one for the first time since nineteen ninety. Four when bill belichick was still the head coach. That boys to men actually had the number one song on the billboard. Hot one hundred. That kind of gives you a little context of how long it's been since the browns were at this point. I mean they're starting quarterback for example wasn't even alive to rewind to a little bit more recently the week leading up to this playoff win over the steelers it was. I don't even know how to explain it. Other than just like total chaos. Breaking news into i ate out of cleveland browns coach. Kevin stefanski has tested positive for covid. Nineteen according to our adam schefter to other coaches and players dealing with kobe related issues. They're closing their facilities fellas. They ultimately competed with kevin stefanski in his basement. Watching the game not on the sidelines. So what is this week been like as it relates to cove it. They had a practice on wednesday which was weird to see because they haven't had a practice or very many of them not even just last week for the last couple of weeks. I mean go back to the game in week. Sixteen when they traveled to play the jets. They had to delay their flight because they had a positive test from one of their players. Then they had to put their entire receiving core as high risk close contacts on the reserve covid nineteen list. They finally get to newark. They stay the night there. They were not able to do a walk through before leaving on saturday so they held a walk through on the fifth floor. The parking garage that morning adjacent to their hotel really from that moment until now it is been total. Chaos i mean they have had almost every single day since then. Something chaotic happen where they'd had to adjust. They went the entire week last week. Almost without a practice until getting one in friday they finally got kevin stefanski their head coach back in the building on thursday. It has been a bizarre couple of weeks. But to this team's credit into kevin's stefanski credit. They have never panicked. They have never felt sorry for themselves and they have been able to overcome it. Which is the most impressive thing. When this team given their lack of success in the past in the way as they've come together their ability to overcome different curve balls that have been thrown their way.
Understanding the Virus with Dr. Howard Fullman
"So i are host the quadruple board. Certified doctor of internal medicine. Pulmonary disease critical care in neuro critical. Care my very good friend. Dr steven day back. How are you steve doing. Okay deceive. oh we have one of our favorite experts returning to us today Howard j fomin. He is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology and howard served a multi decade tenure at kaiser permanent day as partner ford member president of the executive committee chief of staff and chair of the quality committee. He has supervised over forty three hundred staff and over five hundred doctors. Howard is now seen your operating advisor at atlantic street capital for their medically focused investments. Dr howard foreman nice to have you back thanks to be here high stated it good to see hey steve. What's it like in the icu. With the kobe patients has it gone. It's been very rough at my hospital. The surges hit us really hard. We actually we had a mini surge. Back in may when everybody else seemed to be really struggling at this time it has hit us really hard we have about one hundred and fifty plus cove patients in our hospital and i bought twenty percent of those are in the intensive care unit and those that intensive care unit. They are all on high flow oxygen or intimated. So they're all very very sick. And howard what. Are you hear about kaiser. How are they holding up in all this. I just very proud of everybody. Credible courage by the patients and their families what they're going through doctors nurses respiratory therapist all staff level of dedication i think of the healthcare professionals are just miraculous people. Tired in was there the other day doing data the procedures. And just in what. I do which is way less difficult than being in the icu. For twelve hour shifts just wearing in the ninety five masks in a shield and all the p p being more cautious than ever and trying to make sure that the patients can get in and out so that they're not in the medical center. One minute more than is necessary. Cetera et cetera. Just makes the practice of medicine which is already something that's very challenging even more challenging but my heart goes out to the patients and that that's just a culprit patients Anyone who needs services. The hospital is having more difficult time than usual inside easy being a patient thunder normal circumstances that along under these circumstances. i'm sure they're all kinds of treatments. That have changed since our last conversation. I mean the remdesivir steroids in a number of other treatments that you guys have raised a bad situation. What's working the best these days. Dr steve in actually the one medication that really has shown to decrease mortality everything that we have is decadent on an age old medication. A steroid that's used to decrease swelling decrease inflammation in the body thus far as the only medication that we're using that actually has been proven to diminish with a twenty eight day mortality. We do give them de severe because there has been shown that there's been some benefit in terms of shortening the course of the disease and so it's still part of our protocol and so everybody who's coming in is getting a coverage for we call community acquired pneumonia in case they have bacteria on top of covid. So they're getting the usual medications for that which is usually as for miocene in something called stuff triax zone but the standard therapy provided you have good kidney function that you're not to overwhelmingly sick is the decca drawn remdesivir but it is the decca drawn. That by far has been shown to be very effective. I do believe for those people who are not terribly ill that are just starting to show signs and symptoms of covid that have various co morbidity is considerably overweight have diabetes a monoclonal antibody that has given an infusion. I believe has also been a game changer. Although i've not seen formal data in that way but those are the big three medications that we give. I mean you've got to look at what's going on here in the us and it's gotta frustrate both of you. Knowing how many people are breaking the advice may be needle one column rules because somehow those of us in the us don't like those things called rules. Frankly i've seen a bunch of parties. Go on in my town. There have been a bunch of weekend weddings and dancing. And what have you and it's almost like. What are you supposed to do as a healthcare organization to get the message across. I can't imagine. What would happen. To dr steve here if there was a surge on top of this surge. That's an important point in all of us in healthcare professions of. I wanna start again by saying lots. Lots of people doing their level. Best imply vincent. I feel really badly for people who don't have a luxury to be at home. That essential workers people who were living in very congested areas. Tranquil did very best. They can difficult circumstances. So that's important to make sure we now. The hard work difficult circumstances lots of people living under now everybody's violating these guidelines but there are people who are either inadvertently or something some cases intentionally violence

Taking Advantage of Mr. Bear by JL Collins on Tax Avoidance Investment Strategies
"I decided it was time to cuddle up to mr bear and let him help me. Avoid some capital gains taxes as regular readers. Here no for the past few years. We have been homeless and nomadic. It's a lifestyle that agrees with us and when we'd like to keep doing for some time however at some point age will force us to settle down. The trick is deciding when that is act too soon and we miss out on xtra wandering wait too long and i might not have the energy left to easily make the transition but sometime in the next five years. There's a better than even chance that will be buying a final years house to that end we've had money growing. In a taxable account invested in of course vitae ax as i track this against the eventual sale to fund the house. I realized that we be on the hook. For a twenty percent capital gains tax until at least this new market selloff suddenly that capital gain was disappearing indeed with an eight percent drop today it would be completely gone so with the market down about six point. Three or four percent figuring that we'd be close enough. I put in the cell order and moved from visa x to our money market fund conveniently by the market's close. It was down seven point six percent almost exactly when i need it. Good luck so with this sale. I now have the capital freely available and will oh little to no capital gains tax at the same time then sold an equivalent amount of e b t lx bonds and bought v tsa stocks in an ira. Because this was done in an ira. There's no tax consequence. The net effect is that i have moved bonds from the ira and stocks into it again. While freeing up money for the purchase with no capital gains tax to be paid at the end of the day our asset allocation remains the same. This is not a bet that the market has bottomed cuna. Wouldn't you have been better off if the market had continued to rise even if you had to pay the capital gains tax of course but as i learned playing poker. You play the cards. You're dealt not the ones you wish you had. If i had a crystal ball i would have sold before the drop and happily pay the tax. But i didn't. This market declines simply offered an opportunity. And i took it. I prefer the market. Never went down. And i always could sell it again. The market doesn't care about my preferences. Why not wait to see. If the market drops further that way you not only avoid the capital gain but gets a harvest to capitol lost. I want to preserve as much capital as possible for the future purpose. Selling break even is the sweet spot for this gambit. Doesn't this run afoul of the irs. Wash sale rules my thanks to the several readers who raises question and especially to john are who suggested i added here. This was my reply to james. The first who raises question wash sales apply to selling at a loss from the article. You linked to quote loss from wash sales of stock or securities. This ruling provides that if an individual cells stock or securities for a loss and causes his or her ira or roth ira to purchase substantially identical stock or securities within a specified period the loss on the sale of the stock or securities is disallowed under the section ten ninety one of the and the individuals basis. In the ira or roth ira is not increased by virtue of section ten ninety one d end quote in my case the objective was to sell at break even with neither. A loss oregon. Because life isn't perfect. There will likely be a small gain or loss when the dust settles. But it'll be too small to worry about. Why did you move into a money. Market fund rather than bonds with v bt lx mostly because it was easier. And i wanted to get the order in before the market closed i might move into bonds later. Wait but are in bonds. Best held in an ira ordinarily. Yes but remember. This was done to free up capital from stocks for potential future spending money you intend to spend in the next five years or so is best held in cash which is a money market fund is or boss planning any further moves as noted in the addendum to my last post when the market was down about fifteen percent on february twenty eighth. I moved some v. b. t. l. x. to v. Tsa ex if the market continues to drop. I'll do more of that. Taking advantage of drops like this are what bonds or four. Isn't this scary. No wrestling grizzly bear in your garden is scary but this time is different right. Nope every market drop feels like this. Time is different some day. If it truly is nothing will matter. Least of all how. You're invested example 1963 brink of nuclear war between the ussr and the usa a truly civilization ending possibility. Great time to buy no war market goes up. War market doesn't matter.
Samsung introduces the Galaxy S21
"Samsung just released all the details about its new galaxy s twenty one smartphones and. I know you've been pink. Close attention to him. Give us all the details. Yeah this is. This is my first time to dive into a full samsung smartphone launch. You know in the past our colleague jeff. Graham often Would get involved in that more so you have to bear with me. I may not be on top of it as much as he would be. But i can tell you one thing. Samsung is is really trying to challenge apple in smartphone. Supremacy here in the us and actually at the end of last year like in the third quarter. Samsung nudged ahead of apple as the selling smartphones in the us. So this is ongoing battle. one thing that's going to help Samsung this time around is across the board. The s one smart galaxy s twenty one smartphones at two hundred dollars lower than the s twenty models released last year so the entry level model starts at seven ninety nine and that's the twenty one than the twenty one plus nine ninety nine. It's slightly larger. And then he s twenty one ultra is one thousand one hundred ninety nine. That's where it starts and it's got a super camera that will. I'm sure we're going to touch on here And it's six point. Eight inches the The twenty-one pluses six point seven and the s. twenty one is six point two. So historically samsung's made these great looking devices and displays look are fantastic. But i haven't seen these in person yet. So i've watched them on the presentations online. And i've seen what some of the folks there are. Some reporters are in reviewers at the have models that are starting to talk about their experiences. But there's some really interesting features here. And i think the really tying into the fact that people love cameras and they wanna be able to take more types of photos and video clips. You know because we're so many apps use clips now and they have this single take feature which carries over from the last year's model which you just use a single tap and grabs a sequence and then you can decide whether you want to use still or a slow motion video or some other type of clip. There's also this. Cool eight k video sequence you can shoot a single frame from. That's easy for me to say at the end of the week and that's really going to be helpful with like shooting moving subjects like babies and kids animals. You know because they don't you say pose and of course they don't listen to anything you're saying but if you catch like two or three or four second clip you're going to get the smile and everything in there right so People that love take footer to the kids and dogs kinda like that. There's another feature called directors view which lets you see what you're shooting from different angles and you can change lens during the recording. And then there's of lager mode so you could actually shoot yourself And shoot outwards. Unboxing video for instance you like. You're opening up playstation five or whatever you know you could you could shoot that. So one of my sources that i talked to after the launch basically says it's a movie camera in your pocket and that's samsung is trying to really establish itself. You know as the top camera smartphone. i guess it's interesting too. Because if you look at the entry level s twenty one it's the same price as the iphone. Twelve But you get the extra camera it. There's two camps to rear cameras on the iphone twelve when front camera and then for the s twenty one get four so it's basically three on the back one in the front Not to mention the other interesting. Partout is I think you get more storage on the entry level s twenty one as well you get one twenty eight versus sixty four on the iphone twelve And then also the twenty one plus you get a bigger screen so you get kind of a a a a significant bump up in screen compared to i think the closest rival to the iphone twelve of the pro So that stuff's interesting. The one thing that is bugging me though is there are five cameras on the s. Twenty one alterra. There are four cameras on the back of the phone. And there's one in the front. At what point is this phone at. What point are smartphones. Going to start looking like the face of a spider where you have like eight camera lenses on the back of the phone. And there's all this different stuff i i get. You want to take great pictures. But i'm also. I don't think we need twenty different camera. Lenses on the back of your phone to achieve a high quality picture. I mean do we really. I think that's what's going to happen. Is this model. Lineup will probably not this model because only the just the model the twenty one. The only one that has this. I think the uptick on it will kind of dictate what they do going forward. You know A telephoto lens that has this basically like two cameras built into one in a way is is going to be used a lot and tested a lot by a lot of people and we're gonna find out if it becomes something people really want and use. It's gonna stay. I think if if they go ma'am you know and then again there may be a new solution for that down the road For shooting that. I'm not a camera expert. I'm going to learn more about it. but Definitely we're gonna have smartphone battles for the foreseeable future
Innovative Designs for Cold Weather Tiny Living in Canada with Daniel Ott
"Dan. Ought welcome to the show. You i've actually. I was just curious. What is the upside down method. Oh the upside down methods so that is our what we call our signature method. And that's how we help. Our clients prepare their mindsets to be able to not only survived but thrived living tiny and then go through the design process and the mental preparation of education before actually building building is only a small part of our method because we believe the mental preparedness and the impact on yourself in the world around you on both ends of the build are far more important method methodist five steps and we minimize or simplify. We educate we design build and then impact and so impact is like a move in well. It's it's more than that. It's it's it's impact to yourself. And i like to say well it impacts your finances because you can live so much more cost effectively but you also impact. Just you're all the whole tally. The world out there today is to live so quick and so everything on top who itself over and right in rapid succession but we live in a tiny home. One great example is it only takes you an hour to do a really deep clean so you end up with all his extra time on your hand you this extra money on your hand that impacts your lifestyle yourself because you can spend that it also helps you to impact the world around you. So we say don't want impact the world around you. You're just going to by default because they're using less materials and less energy to run your house but it also gives you the opportunity with this extra time money to impact your local community by you know helping out with the local food bank or volunteering at the library or something that impact. You're up nice what What's so difficult about the ontario building codes For for china home specifically but also in general in general everything. So i have. I also have design company and i've been designing regular houses for years and even there. We run into problems where because everything with the internet has gone so global when we do our designs we get people to save stuff on print pinterest and other such things like that and we look through what their designs are and we would see spiral. Staircases and cable railings. I mean those are two things that have been huge throughout the rest of the world. Those are two things illegal and antero. You can't have horizontal members in a railing because you might climate and fall over. You can't have spiral staircases through more than ninety degrees and the rules. Just keep coming at you and it seems seems ridiculous but when we get into tiny home specifically some of the things that really impact us are are. That was the only place. North america has minimum room sizes and sealing so a ceiling height for livable space. Must be a minimum of six eleven. So difficult under the loft very well. Yeah or it means doable. But your loft becomes very small however your loft must also have six eleven so now to be classified as living space or bedroom. That's living space. You need to have sex with eleven so now we can't live in our loss so there's always i in my career. I've gone through finding ways around the rules to to use them to work within them. But kind of like on the very edges. So i like to say we can design a storage sloth. And if you happen to store a mattress and a spare body up there at your time that's And then simply other. Things are the minimum room sizes. So you mentioned you found just by talk by seeing a video on the nest and that is interior smallest legal house and it's two hundred and thirty square feet. I cannot build a house smaller than that. Be legal. maybe to twenty. I can get away with because the bathroom doesn't have size only has a ceiling but the main living has to be. It's actually in meters because that's out canada's but it's thirteen point five square meters which gives me an outside wall dimension of ten by twenty and that it has to be the combination space of cooking eating living and sleeping and then i have a bathroom on side of it and so that's how we get the two hundred twenty or two hundred and thirty square feet so i like to say to people. Oh there's one more thing it's illegal living on -tario in anything that has wheel. So i like to say to people everything you've seen on the internet about tiny homes would never pass the code on -tario but we can still design houses within the code in it's more of There's a lot of lobbyists out there. Who say hey. I'm all for tiny homes. We have to change the rules. And do you know how long it takes to get the government to change rules decade decades. It's ridiculous so i i'd rather say hey. We have the rules. I'm an expert on figuring out how to work with in them the most of our ability and then you know like i said connor dwelling on the outer edges of those rules. And then what you have to do though is bend your mind of that idea a little bit in your mind of what you think. A tiny is and we can make it work right so down like building people what they might have in their head as the picture of a tiny home. Which is you know a little house on. A trailer must not be legal in ontario. I'm sure that doesn't stop people from doing it though. No we bill goes to

Order in the Court (Transfinite Ordinal Numbers)
"This episode is about the trans finite ordinal numbers. What do you think about that Neither no the only word in there. As i know i know lots of like parts of that number but i know ordinal put him in order. trans finite means what across infinite of across finance across the fight number basically an infinite number and the there's actually a difference between ordinal numbers and cardinal numbers. When you get into the infinity's which we're going to talk about Cardinal numbers on the next episode odds apart one basically but ordinal numbers are. Let's say let's say you have like a collection of things. Let's say you have an infinite collection of things. Let's say you have a million like infinite number of names on a list and you have all numbered from a one One onward and their unique right. Yeah and they're all unique or at least they have a unique address if you add. Let's say you add one to that. Like one new name to that while you while you could reorder them and say that they are Well is that one that you're adding. It's one more than the one before. Yeah it is distinct and and you could order them basically the same way because that could be the that could be the number one the the old number one number two number two three and so forth. But if you want to compare if this item is distinct you can refer to it as kind of like the infinity. O plus one address is when you have a collection that's already infinite and you're adding one to it so that makes no sense to me to makes no sense to me because infiniti to me means without end right and so it seems to me like it would be immaterial to add another number in there because it's already there anyway like in other words it's just basically that is when you're talking about cardinal numbers and i'll explain the difference real quick. Cardinal numbers are how many there are ordinal are where they are also. We're not talking about when you were talking about names. were literally not talking about ordering. The numbers were literally talking about unique things. Yeah like let's say like Your jimmy bob. And he's number one and ninety have mohammed number two got pluto three. Got you okay. I was thinking this was like one two three four five. Yeah i mean at one. Two three four and five are ordinal numbers and they're also cardinal numbers because you can have a set like a collection of things with five things in it but once you have an infinite number of things like for example. Let me use the example before we have the incident names and then we add one to it right right. The address of the new thing can be considered like the infinity of plus when address. But it's the total number of things in it is still a just the same in just the same infinity. Because cardinal numbers is about the size of sides and ordinal numbers are about addressing sets. Giving each place everything a unique name so for example before we have everything numbered one through infinity and then we add another item to it and then if we compare that list the oldest to the newest we could talk about this in terms of ordinal numbers.
More EMP mp3
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kent chrome yesterday. I painted a dark picture. Should the earth's be hit by a solar flare containing electro magnetic pulses. I listed the following points affected by. Emp the power grid would go down. There would be no heaton no electricity. Atm's all online banking debit credit. Cards would be shut down. The supply chain would stop creating a shortage on foodstuff and no internet last on the list. I mentioned cars. Most cars would no longer work. Today's podcast is what you could do to protect. Your way of life should emp. Rain down. and i'll start with cars. The conventional wisdom. Is that if your car relies. On any delicate electronics it would be toast in the wake of emp attack or solar flare. This is origin of that idea. Cars built during and after the nineteen eighties are not. Emp safe however real world testing with the mp simulators has yielded mixed results regardless of which camp you fall into the bigger issue is that after a large scale. Emp flare or devastating. Coronal mass ejection. As i like to call it. It is very likely that fuel production distribution systems would be knocked off line so in the absence of some type of alternative fuel source. You would very likely find yourself stranded even if your car were to survive in. Emp in a study released two thousand four. The emp commission subjected thirty seven different cars and trucks to simulated emp and found that none of them suffered permanent crippling damage. Although the results were somewhat mixed the study subjected vehicles to simulate emp attacks both while shut off and while running and it found that none of the vehicle suffered any ill effects if the attack occurred while the engine was off the attack or the solar flare occurred while the vehicle were running some of them shut off while other suffered other effects like aronie s plinking dash lights. Although some of the engines did die when subjected tune emp each of the passenger cars tested by the emp commission. Did start back up. The study findings suggested that ninety percent of the cars on the road in two thousand four but suffer no ill effects at all for many. Emp while ten percent would either stall or suffer some other ill effects. That number has no doubt gone up in the intervening decade says. There are more cars on the road today. That make you self delicate electronics. But none of the vehicles tested by the emp commission suffered permanent damage. There are few possible reasons why the electronics in our cars may be a little bit more robust than we give them. Credit for the first. Is that the electronics. And cars and trucks are already somewhat shielded and they also tend to be a little more robust. The most consumer electronics due to the harsh conditions are subjected to while on the road another factor. That may help protect their electronics. In a car is that the metal body of the vehicle can act as a partial faraday cage. This is why you could survive your vehicle being struck by lightning. That's also why your car radio. Antennas are located outside rather than inside vehicle. Of course your car isn't a perfect faraday cage or you wouldn't be able to make and receive phone calls. We could assume the your car has a better than fifty fifty chance of surviving exposure. Emp the real issue is fuel would become less accessible. But let's leave cars on the road for now and look a communication simply. There wouldn't be any of the casual cell and landline phone calls. We'd like to make why cell towers landlines should be fried. But you notice. I said casual calls. Communication would fall to ham radio. But only those hams that were operated by generator. A battery that had been protected by faraday cage. Of course that begs the question. What the hell is a faraday cage and why would it protect discontents from emp. A faraday cage is an enclosure used to block electromagnetic fields. These cages often look distinctly. Well cage like solemn or simple as chain link fences or ice pales others use a fine metallic mesh regardless of their exact appearance. All thurday cages take electromagnetic radiation and distributed around the exterior of the cage. However your microwave can be used as a faraday cage. It might be big enough for a car or motorcycle battery if you have one of those very old like one thousand nine hundred fifty ish. Refrigerators were lead line. You could use it as a faraday cage and costly protect generator or car battery forgetting for a moment that you won't have access to fuel for your car. You won't be able to use a cell landline. Keep in mind. That country's gridwood down no electricity in your tap go dry. If you have a well you could use a bucket to retrieve water. Woodstove would provide warm possibly heat for cooking. The thought of cooking reminds that unless you have been stocking food. There would be nothing to cook in an extremely rural area. You could hunt maybe poach a cow but then can you feel dress an animal that large you know how to build a smoke house while you get water manually from your well heat cook with woodstove end up living off. What you hunted down. Storing access meat and a smokehouse. House you bill. With the hammer and nail power tools wouldn't be affected by emp but then faraday cage to protect power source for your power tools.
Republican Congressman vs. David C. Smalley
"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction So late you know so late to the party So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian. Dominion est They called me a baby killing sodomite But i thought if if practicality and i was a good guy team player like in my military days voted independently when i had to I thought i would see that. I care about people more than the career. Because i didn't need the paycheck and sadly after the same sex wedding david conspiracy theory started about me that i was working for soros to turn children into alternative lifestyles by funding schools. To teach that doug gay sex was okay. And that i really started saying cunanan was turning and blossom and this was back in twenty nineteen and since my background is in you tracking isis and al qaeda and disinformation and radicals. I said this also looks like that. We have almost the same type of thing here. We have people that are using language of dehumanisation and antisemitic. Tropes to go after people. And you know it's like a lot my book right. It's about bigfoot belief systems and take over people's lives so really been a hell of a time for me. I never thought that My family we get death threats You know i never you know. I never thought that. I can tell you this. Now that somebody would remove the lug nuts are in them all up on my right front tire at a rally where i came out and felt funny and took it to a shop and look like they tried to hurt me pretty bad so this has been one of my life has been like for the past two years david. And guess what athem you know. This is what they want to bring it. Bring it because i got fifty acres of distillery and i'm a second amendment guy and but i'm also a free thinker and pretty socially libertarian. So i don't know where. I fit bud
Is Student Loan Forgiveness A Good Idea?
"Right now on the. Us government federal balance sheet there's loan receivables over a trillion dollars of student loan debt sitting there as a receivable for the fiscal year ending nineteen total assets of the federal government worth three point nine trillion of which one point one trillion was direct student loans. But here's the thing. Three point nine. Trillion in assets twenty six point nine trillion in liabilities. The difference the deficit is twenty two point nine trillion dollars. The us government is effectively insolvent. It does more than its assets. And if the us government road off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans it would just increase the level of insolvency. It would not sink. The government by any means the education department according to some private consulting work that they contract it out understand what the potential losses are on their student loans found. According to a report by the wall street journal that losses on the one point three seven dollars of student loans outstanding at the time this report was compiled would equal four hundred and thirty five billion dollars. Only nine hundred and thirty five billion would be paid back and that didn't include about one hundred fifty tonnes originated by private lenders that are guaranteed by the government each year. The government lends a hundred billion dollars to students to cover tuition to more than six thousand. Colleges and universities doesn't look at credit scores or the field of study or whether students will make enough after graduating to cover the debt. The wall street journal article reported that between two thousand five in two thousand sixteen four intent student loans. Most of them federal went went to borrowers with credit scores below the subprime threshold. That's assuming they actually had a credit score. Which at the time. That i took out my first student loan which i'll talk about a little later in this episode. I didn't have a credit score. Nor frankly i know what i was doing. But here's the thing. The consultants found out that a major driver of those losses were students. Who went on some type of income driven repayment plan. An income share to wear they only had to pay a percentage of their income and ultimately the loan could be forgiven after a number of years. If a loan isn't paid back in full because the payments are based on income in income isn't growing and ultimately the alone is written off after twenty years or so then that will lead to a loss in addition that study found that there are millions of other borrowers that would default on smaller amounts typically less than ten thousand dollars after the drop out of a community college or a for profit college one of the comments in this wall street journal article on the private consultants conclusion regarding the potential losses. For the us government. Student loan program is that taxpayers would be on the hook for this if the government off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans. Us government would receive less interest income and principal payments annually interest if we assume a five percent interest rate on one and a half trillion dollars of student. Loans is is only about eighty five billion dollars. now. I say only because total. Us government revenue is three point four trillion dollars. Interest income from student loans is only about two and a half percent expenditures in fiscal year. Twenty twenty six and a half trillion dollars. The deficit was three point. One trillion fourteen point seven percent of economic output or gdp nominal gdp and fiscal year. Two thousand twenty was twenty one point two trillion dollars. This deficit was fourteen point seven percent of that number the highest since the great financial crisis where the deficit was nine point. Eight percent the highest deficit ever was in nineteen forty three at twenty nine point six percent of gdp. The us ran three point. One trillion deficit in twenty twenty and the federal reserve increased the amount of treasuries on their balance sheet essentially funding that deficit. Two point two trillion dollars is the additional treasury bonds that the federal reserve bought so two point two trillion of the three point one trillion dollar deficit. These student loans are tiny percent of what the government is spending much of which the federal reserve financed indirectly. Veterans are didn't just give the money to the treasury. they went through the county mechanism of buying treasury bonds. But that's what happened. The federal reserve created the money out of thin air to purchase treasury bonds to plug the deficit now when i started hearing about forgiving student. Loans cancelling them. My impression was the student loan. Burden is as high as it's ever been. That students are struggling tremendously compared to when i took out student loans in the late eighties and early nineties. What i found was the average student loan and again this is based on data from marc canter wits. This is just the average student loan balance for graduates with bachelor's degree when they leave school in one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety-three. It was ninety three hundred dollars. Forty six percent of students had student loan debt. That's about how much i had little over ten thousand dollars in student loans. When i left graduate school today. The average student loan balance is twenty nine thousand nine hundred dollars just for students. With bachelor's degrees sixty nine percent of graduating students have student loan balances. That amount going from ninety three hundred to twenty nine thousand. Nine hundred was a four point. Six percent annual increase. Now that's a burden no doubt and if it growing at four point six percent it's growing faster than inflation yet if i look at what students are making when they graduate in nineteen ninety-three or year after they graduated so in nineteen ninety-four an engineer. Starting salary was thirty thousand. Nine hundred dollars. A humanities graduate was making twenty one thousand three hundred dollars so if we compare that salary to the amount of their debt engineer made three point three times. The amount of student loan debt they had and the humanities major may two point three times the amount of student loan debt they have if we look at what engineers typically make coming out of university. Today it's close to seventy thousand dollars or about two point three times the amount of their student debt back in one thousand nine hundred. They made three point three times the amount that they owed now. It's two point three times so they own more relative to their salary but the interest rates are lower now. So they're able to handle that. But it's not this huge change that i had expected for the humanities graduate. They went from earning two point. Three times Student loan balance to one point eight times now. Part of that is pell. Grants which are grants given to low income students to essentially pay for school. I got a lot of pell grants when i went to school. That program has only grown about three point nine percent per year the maximum payout amount per student so it has not grown as fast as student debt levels. Now we can say well may be. College graduates are able to find jobs. The unemployment rate for recent graduates was five point one percent in nineteen ninety-two it was three point. Nine percent before the pandemic hit in february twenty twenty and so a greater percentage of recent graduates had jobs in early. Twenty twenty then back in nineteen ninety-two now. The unemployment rate at least in september was nine point one percent according to some data from the new york fed which suggests that yeah Graduates are struggling to get jobs. It is harder today than it was in nineteen ninety two but not that much difficult. And i don't recall calls to cancel student. Loan debt back in the early to the mid ninety s

"Welcome to the cyber-security weekly podcast. I'm jay leno podcasting from singapore today and today we are very privileged to have dr becky bengal who is the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose to join us in the podcast. He repeats sharing with us. The work in a digital transformation and the recent ai breakthrough in ethics and trustworthiness at ross writes thank. You thought the bengals for joining us in the podcast today to be here for many of our listeners. dr bandou rose. Rice name has a long lasting romance and history going back to the first car built more than one hundred years ago but the motos business was separated out some time ago in nine thousand nine hundred seventy three. I believe and rose rises. Now in the business of pioneering the power that matters so tell us more about the journey business. That rose is in today and your role as the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose rice. Well has been rooted in engineering since we established in eighteen. Eighty four and this expertise has evolved the business to become one of the world's leading industrial technology company that we today and as the president for the region covering southeast asia pacific and south korea. I'm responsible for the regional strategy our external relations and governance of all our operations across the three businesses that we have civil aerospace is one of them manufactures of ever engines for large commercial aircraft on our regional jets and business aviation and we have decades of engineering expertise to take us through life through life. Service and support solutions for customers in the defense were market-leading aero-engines for military transferring control labor's including combat helicopter applications. I'm needles and power systems. Where leading provider of high speed reciprocating engines providing complete propulsion systems distributed energy solutions. So you can say that we. We have a diverse but volume that includes civil defense and power system and it is because w that our activities have tremendous impact on the world today and tomorrow we have always pursued clean safe and competitive solutions and we believe our technology will be fundamental in helping society transition to the low carbon future. And we're not going to do this on our own. We're going to do this. In partnerships and global partnerships to collaborate and co create solutions and with the regional hub. That we have here in singapore. We've developed collaborations with government agencies untucked -demia like a star and anti eu and us to pursue advanced research and technology in daytime smart manufacturing electrical systems. You touch on engine. That paolo many other products across the road strikes businesses. And i believe including aircraft of course and i imagine that you have been collecting analyzing the performance data of your engines for that case and in fact i see from one of your rolls royce presentation that you have been collecting data for some seventy trillion data points across twenty-sixth dimensions on your engines. So i think our listeners will be interested to know how you been. Harnessing that power data to make sense of this of information and into insight and action. And i believe in many ways is supplying the data to a machine learning throughout the life cycle of the engine from the initial stage of designed to manufacturing to maintenance repair. Overhaul that's right so we we've been applying data analytics for more than thirty years and using ai. With our real time engine. Health monitoring system but service w. lunch to back in nineteen ninety nine and our ai. Capabilities are deeply embedded into products and services so they aren't visible And not widely. Now we're able to monitor six thousand to eight thousand flights every day which is equivalent to monitoring three thousand engines in the sky at any one time so we have multiple sensors on board that continuously relay inflammation with were able to analyze five million data promises from our engines every day and we used to provide insights to our engineers for future development and services that we provide for our customers. But it's not just about the asian and the behavioral for engines. Current work includes applying a with a dedicated team that we have inside rolls royce school the day to labs to improve the risk management in supply chains predict market demand improved the efficiency of our operations and more recently nepal systems. Father of the business. We've been applying a on microbes making our industrial powered technology more reliable and sustainable and in the future we see a. I will continue to evolve. Play a bigger role especially as we saw increasing use of cloud based services which will be governed by data ethics framework and this becomes really essential and today more than two hundred projects that are starting to apply more and more of Framework so

"This is this is getting really like weird meta the places. We're taking this podcast. But i feel like the thing that i've tried to do better and like the last three years or so is instead of debating every decision like i just. I didn't make a decision that don't think twice about i'm like i like. I like walk in closet outfit. I'm like that's what. I'm not thinking about anything else that's gonna wear like. I'd i'd taken out the the time used to spend debating the uh This study that. Like whatever you guts telling you to do decicision. I'll make energy. That's help in eliminating some of the debating situated in my head at the guy still be like the thing where like remember that time when i embarrassed myself like the worst possible way when i was a sophomore in high school. That sort of thing comes up. But you know i think i you know. I think about like golf shots. Hit poorly urge. You know like just random things like that instead of like you know really truly important things in my life about so. I'm hoping to be on that path to a resolution. I've i've into my sleep greatly over the past year head space. Great app face gratitude. Journaling this is very meta and this is very like crunchy but all of these things help a lot of people. If you're listening to this podcast go to sleep because we're so boring. Try these things out. You should try to head space space highly. I know it seems weird. Meditations me weird thing the peace of mind and the calm within your body that you that you can feel after this just doing this for a couple of times a week like it might be weird.

I can articulate these thoughts attorney to feelings in my head. But if i can't even articulate them to write them down why are they significant. So it's like a really good way of disarming anxiety and then you can just write down things that you actually are happy about are things that they make small.

The next two weeks could just rescheduled that. And this is just more like you know. I didn't really participate. I'm new to this group. I was just kinda listening this time. Maybe next more comfortable the share. I'll participate a little bit more but you guys did a great job in terms of you know giving a presentation today. How about we start will hashtag for listeners out there that's being bbb grateful tweet tweet at us telecom things. You're grateful for low fat. I i would love to engage with you talking about those things. Just be grateful. So a positively for the world speaking of that we have twenty eight members of our bbb. Bb biker gang.

Because I saw the rundown for yet on when check it out by the way on. Wednesday. came out BBB there was Borat and there was something. So started, there was supposed to be big brother and the marlins plan while it was baseball and then the NBA playoffs are going on in his basketball and we realized that like we don't know much about baseball.

What's going to happen here is going to be scary because dinosaur dinosaurs scary rate. Fast forward through for second fifth kids and then I saw Barney bend over and I saw a human neck with a t shirt. By Barney's head and I was like well. Barneys not super legit like this is very disappointing. I couldn't believe that I saw the truth about Barney going to see him as a child in what was supposed to be a great day for me ended up ruining my view of imaginary dinosaurs. It's funny that you bring up Barney and also was real dinosaur because so I'm looking this up and Barney debuted in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two. You know you're dinosaur pieces of media. There was a big movie nineteen ninety-three. What was it drastic park traffic park came out and introduce kids like me. Very visceral angry vicious. Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs for you. You had friendly Barney Jurassic, Park. Clever girl. Why I'm fun. I was GONNA say like I cannot yet. So on the medicine ball I I'm I'm GONNA for a second poll Lorenzo and say in referred to something that is strictly visual and I realize this audio medium but Lorenzo you must stop bouncing that ball office wildly distracting Activated. Good. The see you. Good to talk to. Turner Alison. Lorenzo is on an exercise ball for some reason, he has a ton of energy and he can't stop bouncing and this is before my afternoon. Saito. So This is just a natural high of yours. That's correct. I'm excited the MARLINS are reading the cubs well, no because this series when this comes out on one day series, we'll have been over by four days already by then they'll have beaten the cubs which is great now. So if you're listening to this, we have an exciting energy right now because the marlins. are playing the cubs when we're recording this in their winning right now. So that's why Lorenzo's excited bouncing ball. That's why I seem to be a bit chipper even though my friend Mr Kraft's six today also Allison Turner has joined us. We can talk about Demi Levato in a moment what's happening with the bouncing situation? It's unbelievable I can't even I can't even look. I can't hear you know it's not exercise right? What are you talking about integrating? Not like do you. Like working or I'm about to go run after this. So yeah, this is. Good for your core. Theoretically little only if you're actually bouncing enough. Yeah it's. crunchy bounce up and down. That's. Doing anything for your core. That's when..

"I'm turning into my. Take. I don't know I'm not proud of it. But yeah what is the most trouble that your kids again into so for? The oldest though the nicest kid in the world now the problem is lying lying is an issue and lot. And lying of the issue at that. Again, this is the hard part about being a parent. So if you're listening to your dad or even if your mom and you're listening to, this is the hard part. The hard part is when you have a kid who lies and the lies are holy unsophisticated and very easy to tell US ally part of it makes your job easy because they're easy to catch. But part of it makes you think man if you don't get better lying, you're going to be terrible in life because. You gotTA. Be Good at lying in. So I wonder should I be training like this is how you lie. You gotTa have gotta be believable and it's got to have something that's. So. That they look into and not on I don't teach I don't hear. But Lila this the like this. If you argue I bring emphasized the live better haven't done that yet but definitely, that is a conflict that have within me of how much teaching as you know what it's like when you're a basketball coach, how much do you teach them? right Because like you say flopping his bad and there's no plan as bad sportsmanship but you know it happens and you know all the best players do it. So at some point I'm going to have to sit you down and say look I. Know I said this is bad but if you have to do it, this is Tai Dude so what? Has Gone on the world today and every nets been on the news. Have you had a chance to tell you about what's been happening and see understand what's going on? Yes my oldest actually as made like artwork that's black lives matter on it plays a game online it's called the road blocks I think are but it's one of those games. It's kind of like the Sims but it's free online and the character my kid made the character say you know my life matters and made the character black and stuff like that? So I'm lucky in that. You know my parents live with me. So they get the all get to hear from my dad a lot talk about things. The little ones don't really know what's happening but the oldest definitely is aware of things we started watching roots, and that took gave me an opportunity to stop and pause and explain look this is how slavery was. This isn't just a movie or a TV show. This is pretty much. What it was like and millions of people died on the way over and and so we've had a lot of good conversations but my kid understands, but it seems I'm there is a level of kind of just too young because for instance, yesterday you know we're talking about in general like sometimes some of these movies these bad words and you're getting old enough now or I'll let you watch it because I know you know not to. Use those words at their offensive as you know in sometimes mood like this sometimes something routes and my kids. But the only bad word they're using routes is the end work. Yeah. But you know it's offensive jets offensive the black people I. No, it should be offensive to everybody. Yes. It's offensive by because we are the target, but that's not why it's offensive like if if for instance I said, they're bad words to describe Jewish people. are backwards, describe. Hispanic, people that are bad words. So have every kind of necessity we should be offended by all of them even though we're not Jewish or Hispanic or these and other things, and so my kid says, why do we even have bad words? Why do people say bad words all right like because I'm like, I don't know how do you answer that question? That is the question of the innocence of a child right us. CanNot. Conceive a why anyone would call anyone else by the N. Word Easy because as a human instinct for one human to get a leg up on another human. So yeah the human down that's basically what it is and maybe you should come to class. Has Deepen as diva. So, you mentioned your parents live with you. I WanNa talk about your parents how raise do in your parents are a Sudanese correct? Yes. Yes. My parents Let's talk about. Are Happening in Sudan in the way. To Your father's eyes into mother's is my parents obviously born raised Sudan I was born in Sudan. I've moved when I was a baby to New York but then I, moved back when I was eight. Eight and fourteen I lived in Sudan, which is super important because it. Gives me like a weird perspective in a way that my kids don't have even if they go back and visit, they haven't lived there so they don't know any of these things. In the revolution happened last year. This was something that me, my sister, my brother and my parents, we all we all knew we were very up to date on There are things like the local politics that obviously my dad keeps track of my mom keeps track of that. I, don't I just learned the other day that they fired the entire cabinet and they hired a new cabinet and I was like, why am I desert? It's a long story So there there are things obviously I'm not up to date because I'm not plugged in like like he is and my dad was a diplomat so like she worked in the. Equivalent of the State Department in Sudan. So He's obviously very plugged in in that way you know the the big thing for us is kind of a lot of times. Honestly the conversations are the similarities between what happened to us and what's happening here. For instance, we had a government that lied at a lot and it was blatant lies is the kind of lies that you can easily debunk. You don't need a whole lot of sleeping. That's not true. That's not true at all. You know it's like claiming your grandparents grew up eating a certain kind of food even though that food wasn't available to them until after they probably died. Like that would be a really dumb lie for a politician to make a positive my still make it because no one's going to call them on it. We have a lot of to Dan and we see a lot of that happen here is we have a lot of conversations about how similar that is a lot of conversations about suppression of Rights, a lot of conversations about specifically about religion, but the use of religion to be as a reason I we're going to do this because God wants us to. which isn't really a reason at all. That's just sounds like you want to do this and you want nobody to question you and then finally obviously you know last year we had the revolution it was a peaceful.

Shred in point break with did you all watch the second point break like the remake appoint break? I watched it a very good at all. They have one actor who he was pretty good. He had the look of a guy but I mean I just can't believe they'd try to recreate an original. That was so iconic was it just like a flat out remake or did they change like a new storyline like these are like the grandkids of the point break people or something? It was a very odd remake because it wasn't like situation situation it was. If I'm ruth correctly it was like a very, very similar plot line but the major like you know action activity theme activity scenes were were like different things like like I. Think they were I think in the new one, they had a scene where they have like those squirrel suits where you jump off like something tall.

What else we have in common So this podcast please. I know I'll get back to you on that one You have a recipe. The only thing I've experimented with in the kitchen. This week was a really good breakfast and. I made something else in the Crock pot also a great fall activities crock pot cooking. But I haven't tried it yet. So I would feel irresponsible sharing that recipe with everyone. So, based on our conversation an earlier about five. I'm deciding to share one of the dishes that I bring to Thanksgiving every year, which is no bake Pumpkin cheesecake. So good easy. So. You take a premade Keebler Graham cracker pie crust, and then in a big bowl you mix together. Some canned pumpkin some whipped cream cheese. A little bit of sugar. Cinnamon Nutmeg. Ginger and as I'm saying this I realize you could also just do whipped cream cheese and pumpkin pie filling instead of just plain camped Pumpkin, which has all those flavors Any who makes it all together till? It's totally smooth. Pour into the Graham cracker crust in top it with some cool whip sprinkler with some cinnamon and nutmeg and so good. It's very easy I feel like it's kind of a cop out recipe but. Very. Popular every year Thanksgiving is everyone in your family cookers or is it just use a loves cooking? My Dad loves cooking probably more than me. He's the cooking family I inherited my. Adoration of cooking from him. My Mom's really good at breakfasts and desserts like baking. But when it comes to entrees and savory. Meals I, feel like my dad kicks my butt in the kitchen. He's such a good cook. A thanksgiving with your family sounds like a dream like everybody has their homemade things that they like to make they all bring it together and it's just going to be a nice time with Nice people.

Kind of was the first to establish major pressing high up the pitch really changed the game on video analysis changed the game on dieting and a big part of a football career, not smoking cigarettes and eating hamburgers in between training sessions. So this has been someone who is this incredible character who's led leads he joined them when they were in the championship has this really cool story and now is like a hero. In this city, they're going to build a statue of him outside the stadium and I'm really fascinated to see how his style of play, which is very book nearing attacking. We're going to get after the opposition they played Liverpool in their first match, and if they go against them, I cannot wait to watch this. So for me, it's the club and the manager that make this fascinating. Yeah. We've seen clubs try to go for it after being recently promoted and it doesn't always work out look at Norwich city every time they had promoted went right back down but lead should go for it because they're spending money. and. They have the to do it and I really do hope. I. Don't quote me on this because I may regret this Chris I do hope that they say because I've always heard about leads fans and I've had very few interactions and they've been memorable with Leeds fans. But we all have a time here in America where we get into the premier league and when I got into the primarily leads was talked about as a club from the past I've never actually had them in the premier. League I've been looking forward to this day. It took so long and I may be dreading exactly what I said. These words may be held against me in the very near future because we're about to find out a whole load of Leeds fans on twitter and might I suggest if you find yourself as a cocky individual if you want to be a of something big and brash a little brash and agitating and looking for a club to get into on the ground floor that that that's pretty good one they've got history in the Premier League loads of people hate them and if you win.

"But I can't really envisage them until they prove otherwise. Destined for what they call in England Mid Table, obscurity? Yes or just Everton. This anonymous at this point, God, bless their hearts, and if something ever good happens to this club, genuinely going to be happy for them and my NFL team is the Cleveland Browns and I see plenty of parallels between those two are also kind of like, New York jets because they will actually really get excited with exciting off seasons and actually legitimately they have a chance. So that's really who Everton. Let's turn our attention now to some of the other London clubs a West Ham. Featured in some movies, you may know they had a battle for the relegation. Battle. Their way out of the relegation-zone last year and so if you want to be a hipster pretty cool name, the have cool kits, the hammers you could do worse but not much worse. If you're looking to do worse Fulham recently promoted rivals of Chelsea west London posh part of West London Fulham. Who owned the Jaguars? So another NFL Premier League cross promotion here they're trying to get a foothold in this primarily glass him came up they got sent right back down but they have an exciting player and Mitch and they have one of the most beautiful stadium grounds we've actually been at this stadium is a Pearl I really hope it stays in the Premier League yeah we've been. There twice, and it's my favorite trip in England. It's right on the River Thames. You're walking through this big park to get there and it's just it's my favorite I. Love going to follow him. So I I agree with that I. Hope they stay really the big concern for them is the last two times have been in the primarily they've given up more than eighty goals in. Those two seasons so they just need to lock things down defense a little bit and I think they've signed enough. They really beefed up their squad in the championship. They haven't really done too much since joining the primarily, but could do with another centreback or to and and really be able to consolidate their places sounded pretty famous goalkeeper in Ariella, previously a PhD in Madrid. So they're. Trying to address those issues and really the goal for this year has finished in Seventeenth Crystal Palace and other London Club. They have cool kits as well. They have Roy Hodgson, who is the author of one of the more famous soccer shifts there are out there I. Know Plenty of people are upset of how I say just Jeff's it's how the Creator intended get off of me. Let's move onto lesser city. One of the more improbable champions in premier. League. A couple years ago. This team is actually stayed kind of good since that this was a team that was fighting to say up in the Premier League, and then all of a sudden movies will be made documentaries have been made on their majestic run to an improbable title hanging around Jimmy Vardi, who was their leading goalscorer that year he's still hanging around. He's really like the lone face that in Casper's Michael, really the loan faces of. That team that won the Premier League team that's going to be remembered throughout time the make nice signing. So they do good business and this is another team that should be right back. They're competing for top four slot. They were right up there a year ago and just lost out because after the restart period they were horrendous. So I'll be curious if they kind of got that out of their system and now can kick on at. The beginning of this season, but I mean, there was a time in December January where we thought guaranteed to finish in the top four but just completely fell off and kind of performance team though it finishing fifteenth for the second half of the season. So be curious to see if they can get back to that forum. Jamie Vardi is still golden boot winner a year ago he someone who even in his thirties is still scoring tons. Of Goals of Red Bull fueled and we'll see if lester can do enough to improve year over year red bull fueled is a good way to describe Let's go through another couple of clubs quickly here Sheffield United they were recently promoted kind of a weird style of play, but they're nicknamed the blades and have a coal crest. So if you're looking to be a soccer hipster, go ahead and do that West Brom, don't do that. Not. Just stay away although the hawthorns is a cool place for a home stadium, you could do better. May I suggest TURF MORE OF BURN? If they're going to be around for very long time in the Premier League they've been up they've been down they have a pretty good run right now for Burnley the clock is ticking. It seems like it's might be about time for them to go back down we'll see but one of these Claret and blue uniforms that you see all too much in the Premier League Ed's Burnley. It's tough place to play occasionally tough style to play. Against occasionally, always searching for an identity I, never really know what I'm going to get when I get Burnley I don't think Berlin supporters know what they're gonna get when they get. Burnley. Let's talk about really what every Premier League fan whatever neutral is excited about what certain clubs are dreading they gave Dracula keys. So the blood bank Leeds United this to me is the best storyline outside of a compelling title chase for the first time. Since Manchester City and Liverpool were separated by literal inches Leeds United enter the premier league with a fan base that is loud and proud. It's been a very long time since they were in the premier league. They're making all sorts of signings and they're planning on being here for Awhile and they are in your face about it. Yeah. Lease United. It's two stories with them. So one is the club they got relegated in two thousand and three four, and they haven't been back since this is a big club that regularly is drawn like the biggest crowds and the lower division and huge fan base rabid fan? Base and so it's really huge for them that they're backing. They've gone through so much there in the Champions League at the beginning of the century and then three years later they were relegated because they had bad owners who basically needed to make the champions in order to be financially viable they've been relegated into league one, which is the third tier. So they've come a long way to get here and it's really for me. The biggest bummer of no fans yet is that leads aren't GonNa have a packed stadium for their first game because it would have been so fun to watch them when when. Great. Atmosphere, and then the story line is our manager Marcelo Bielsa, who is kind of this ideolog cranky old guy. But has been the thought leader in the world game for like twenty five years..

"Now, if you're watching this more than likely, you're an American and there's this whole bias against American soccer supporters and you'll really notice that with Manchester United supporters over there across the pond and Arsenal supporters with the American football owner ownership of the keys and the Glazers not very popular folks over there in London and look this is a. Club that just furloughed fifty five workers and they turned around and sign willion for not a very popular ownership situation over there. Arsenal hated rivals of Tottenham I don't like Tottenham because I'm a Chelsea supporter we actually went to Tottenham Chelsea game very intense Tottenham. Have the most well-known most colorful manager and all of club football really Josie Marina del if you want to catch up and if you want support Tottenham as I say that as a grit, my teeth, you can actually catch up on last season on Amazon right now that's right. They had their version of hard knocks. This was a tumultuous season. Pochettino was their manager got them to a Champions League final improbably. So fired early on in the season Josey Marina, the charismatic. Some would have other ways to describe him figure now manages Tottenham. It's a weird fitting plays, very defensive football. They don't spend like the big clubs although they have some big players on their club and Josie Marina will probably complain about it in the public. Well, yeah. He's always going to ask for more money in terms of transfers, but I mean in terms of the Amazon nothing show at all, it really reveals that Josie Marina likes to drop the bomb and encourage his players to play like CBA comes so. This is a guy who came in spurs were this free flowing fun attacking team and he took every aspect of that out of it destroyed it with his awful soul destroying football. A defensive. You're the neutral observer Chris Wittingham. I feel like letting me your opinion show and Josie Marinas had a lot of success. Now there are some that say the game has passed him by Chris tried to tell you that but not as kindly as I did however, I think his brand football actually helped todd him certainly played better under him. It has its place in football whether it has its place in the premier. League remains to be seen. These are some big clubs but there are some exciting mid-table clubs that are trying to crack the glorious top six. It's it's commonly referred to Wolverhampton Wanderers have arguably Christian Pulisic is in this argument. But if you WANNA talk best player in CONCACAF, which is the United States qualifying region role he Menez is on walls and just from optics alone triaud Ray Rick bleep house this guy is Put together like an NFL middle linebacker, not a soccer player that you've ever seen before and he's fun with the ball at his feet. He's fast he's Pacy even those games are fun to watch Chris. Well, I think wolf right now are probably the team that are most likely to make a jump into crack as you said that top six because there's one team every season that benefits from not playing in Europe. And I think either the Champions League of the Europa League and so I do think wolves having missed out on the euro because Arsenal won the FA, Cup are going to be the team that most benefits from not having the tight schedule they played the longest season in club football history sixty, five games lasted more than a year. So the opportunity for them to rest get ready for games with a bit more. Strategy and all that they should be able to really compete at a high level. They brought in a couple of good signings to have ties to this really big agent in Portugal they brought in thirty, five, million, pound eighteen year old from Portugal who's kind of going to be the next big thing for them. So I think wolves have a real chance to towards as up of the League and as you said, difficult to play against. If you WANNA be a soccer hip Sir and pick a new team that doesn't have a lot of supporters maybe had some cool looking kids. But as players and you really want to truly believe you'd like you have a shot at winning wolves are for you. I want to highlight a couple more of those clubs and then we'll talk about the newly. Promoted clubs and talk about the really cool aspect of the Premier League, which is promotion and relegation can't talk about every club here. So apologies if we missed one, you're interested in hopefully that club is Chelsea you've already settled in Oh. Wait I'm supposed to be more of a neutral here. If you want to be miserable I suggest Everton as a club. And their this is textbook Everton man they had an exciting summer transfer window and I'm working myself up into a lather believing that these moves might finally put them in European qualifying qualifying position Chris Hamas a name that several people in South Florida. No. The Colombian superstar finds his way to a great manager former manager Real Madrid Carlo Ancelotti is a has pedigree that you really don't see managing club like Everton they are. Bitter rivals of Liverpool. Crosstown rivals they are the little engine that could and their fans are. Admittedly they will tell you Roger Bennett one half of men in Blazers. We'll tell you how miserable he is because of this club makes him. So tell us about Everton. Perpetually. Disappointing. Yeah. It seems as though Everton with a new owner are constantly trying to not be Everton by bringing in expensive players, Clare some Europe promoting players from elsewhere in the prayer primarily bringing in players in bigger clubs. But in the end, they'll end up with more Everton attached to them than the reverse and I just think that Everton Gunness end up settling for mid-table. I mean at some point I feel like this cycle has. To break three really good signings. You mentioned Hanis I've delight decor from Waterford Alon from Napoli like they're doing really good business every time three straight summers are going. Wow Everton killing in the transfer market and Enchilada just felt like wasn't able to break. The cycle of Everton will see with an extra month of training and getting to start from the beginning of the season if he can..

"On your twitter on your twitter you're like our on about a basketball trade. Manchester City and Blue Moon era's a fan to. All right. We move onto the red side of Manchester Manchester United. One of the most famous clubs club of Beckham, the Club of all these trophies, Sir Alex Blah, blah, Blah Blah Blah, spending, lots of money Paul. POGBA I've seen them in commercials, Manchester United Though peaks, and valleys with this club. They play red hot sometimes and you think that's a team like where the Champions League that's a trouble winning side at trouble when he went three trophies and there are some times where you're like they need a fire. This manager told me about Manchester United and their attack has just been so strong in these kind of nine months really from January on when they signed a player from Portugal named Bruno Fernandez who's come in and completely changed their team a young player Mason. Greenwood has come through their academy. He was the other that was mentioned in that scandal Marcus Rashford Anthony Marceca of already been long stays there Paul Pogba in central midfield as you mentioned famous player but also really good player especially on his day they signed a young player from Holland who is part of the I exide they went to the semi final of the Champions League Donnie Vanderbeek. So it seems like they're front is really good. It's really at the back goalkeeper questions David. Was Thought to be the best goalkeeper in the world but the last two years he had a terrible World Cup and really since then he's not really recovered and regained that form and there's questions about as you said, they're consistency. Can they do it? We can and week out with a manager WHO's inexperienced? I think they're going to be right up there in terms of competing, but it really comes down to their level of consistency and if You want to be a supporter of a club that makes you the lease per popular person at the soccer pub. Manchester United is it because they have more rivalries than any other club in the primarily didn't get along with anybody. A lot of that is because they were at the top of the table for so long but now it's just because not very likable leads united is coming into the premier. League. They hate Manchester. United Manchester. United have. Heated rivalries with Liverpool and Manchester City even Chelsea let's talk about Chelsea because you mentioned that there one of these clubs that's been a lot of money and they actually took a break from that and now boom during pandemic while everyone else is saving money Chelsea are back to ruin and football with the Russian oligarch owner spending money everywhere assign in great. Exciting. German. Players this. Is A club of the American Christian Pulisic exciting things on the horizon for this club and publicity in particular for for the audience, I think is going to be the linked. The thing that's GonNa make them want to watch because publicity was incredible after the coronavirus stoppage they came back towards the middle of July, and after that, he had like four goals and five assists scored. The opening goal in the FA Cup final this is right now America's best player and probably America's best ever player in terms of the current level of performance that he's achieving in the club game. Now, Landon Donovan is achieve more with the national team Clint. Dempsey has had amazing moments, but in terms of the level of which he's performing at the level of club that he's Performing at no American player has succeeded to the level of chic- twenty one years old. So you can only imagine this player's GonNa grow even more combined him with four or five really good signings and Chelsea look a really fascinating prospect from an attacking point of view they're going to probably be your most fun watch this year and the primary if you want to watch A. Game that's going to have goals watch Chelsea but the question is, can they defend well enough to really compete at the top end of the league couple things you need to know he wishes handed the number Ten Jersey now with Chelsea certain clubs number ten could be a position you play. It's usually reserve for your most creative midfield player or some clubs just do the thing. Where we'll hand it to our best player. He earned this number Ten Jersey based on the performance of last year and they're number ten, million leaving Arsenal arsenal doesn't get along with. Chelsea. Arsenal doesn't get along with anybody lots of chatter. Some might accuse club Banter Club even though that is very insulting. I actually love that arsenal exists because without arsenal we don't have arsenal fan. TV Youtube it tell me about arsenal because now that got hardware and they have impressive victories over Chelsea in the FA Cup final victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup semi's and they win the community shield. Over Liverpool this is a team that is now all of a sudden got some hardware to backup all that tough talk. Well, they haven't won a league title for. More than ten years and I think that reputation was kind of begun on the best attacking team in the Premier League. But when it really comes down to game, they just can't defend well enough they have soft center and you can get at them well, that narrative is almost entirely flip. They still have some great attacking players peer Emiko bomb young is chief among the music. Playing off the left wing, a golden boot candidate for sure. But they've really lock things down at the back under their new manager Mikhail out that we like we like saying his name and other little flourish on it. and. So you have you have his. Defensive. Play with three out of the back and they do like to build out but still they've been so much more solid signed a couple more defenders goalkeeping situation is really good. So I don't think that playing arsenal is the same. Yeah. It's a big club, but we should probably be able to beat them I think. Heading into this next season, I don't know if the big clubs are GonNa WanNa play Arsenal as eagerly as they have in years past, and that's a big departure. We'll see what it means in terms of their position in the standings..

"Show. I don't want to call it premier league for Dummies because right then and there we're getting off on the wrong foot. Look you're a soccer agnostic you don't really care for it when you were small everyone around you said, it was boring and he thought it was cool to say with boring to or you may legitimately find it boring. God. Bless you for listening to me this long already but the best soccer league in the world in my opinion is the premier league and they are rampant things up this weekend and we wanted to go out of our way to welcome casual. American sports fans aboard and see. If they actually want to sample this league Chris Wittingham. Let's talk about the League Champs Liverpool they all sorts of records they were tremendous side. You could see this bubbling and Gurgling to the surface, they one Champions League, and then they finally win their first primarily of the modern era. A lot of people are picking. Your can collapse team Jurgen KLOPP, a fantastic German manager who managed Christian Pulisic over in Germany Bruce Dortmund big club lot of people are picking this club to win the Premier League again Chris, Wittingham tell us about Liverpool. Yes. So Liverpool have been building year over year year adding they started kind of with this base in the attack led by Saudi. Roberto Gino and Mohammed Saleh they've become the sensation of the primarily the front three. They score goals a really fun. They play off each other best combination, the League, but they've since added indefens- really strongly probably the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and Allison the Best Center in the League and Virgil Van Dyke, they spent a bunch of the two of them. They spend a bunch of money on and then a homegrown in turn out tender arnold and the left back Andrew. Robertson. And they've just built this really solid core of team where all over the park, they might have the best player in the Premier League, and so I think it's really hard to envision them falling off when they've already been so strong, they had ninety nine points a year ago after ninety seven the year before these are incredible points tallies, and so you just have to imagine, Liverpool we're going to go again and be right up there at the top of the League now it's not. A. Traditional rivalry against Manchester City but man has been fierce fun watch over these last few years with Liverpool finally winning the League for Manchester. City and getting the job done. We've actually been one of those matches hotly contested match. These two fan bases have grown a healthy dislike for each other Manchester City. Davidge silver leaves a club. It could be a weird transitional year for Manchester City. Am I reading that situation? Right? Well, I do think they've been preparing somewhat and bringing in Bernardo. Silva player from Portugal and now a young kid from England always have involved in a pretty big controversy right now, Phil Foden and do I do want to tell because as long as being inclusive. The Phil Foden Mason Greenwood story is worth telling Mason Greenwood is a brilliant player for Manchester United. We'll get to them in a second but Phil Foden who is now finally expected to finally grab hold of a starting eleven spot and Manchester City is caught in this whole huge snapchat scandal. Greenwood, we're busted because these girls were invited to their hotel room during a covert restriction started posting on social media. So they got caught red handed and sent home batboys boys. Yes and it was just a tremendous tabloid story as a happens very often in English soccer. So Phil Foden has kind of been groomed to be the Davits silver replacement. They've got some good wingers Raheem Sterling Moro's they brought in a Spanish player for on Torahs who should be able to to really help in that attack. So they're going to be able to score goals. Kevin. Debrecen instill probably the best central midfielder in the world. So I do think there'll be able to score the question is. Can they defend? Can they see out these close games or maybe the chances aren't falling in? They can score four and five and a game. But then there's times where they can look like they can find the key to unlock aside. So I think it's about, can they improve their defensive record and can they kind of settle those games where teams are really bunkered in against them and if we wanting catch you up on the history Liverpool, it was great. They finally won the primarily because this club with so much history. So many European titles to get that. Elusive trophy was such a big deal, and now they have reclaimed that top spot. Manchester City's considered new money right Chris. You know all about this club. What is the perception of Manchester City in world football? Remember this is a club that was heavily linked to Messi and was considering paying that buyout but messy just didn't WanNa find himself in a legal case right so measured city are owned by a member of the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi. So huge amounts of money being poured in more than a billion dollars isn't important between transfer fees and salaries and. Now. They've actually built a sustainable business. They have clubs over the world in New York City in Melbourne an all over the world they have in Spain they're heavily invested in a team. So they've built out this whole conglomerate and with that money they able to buy their way towards the top of the League. It'd be there have been plenty of clubs that have done. This PSG Chelsea are among those that have gone and spent big amounts of money to get toward the top of the league, and so I do think that the traditional club Liverpool, Manchester United. And arsenal to a lesser extent have been fending off these challenges from the new money teams and I think that kind of adds another layer of rivalry and they skirt the rules and get away with it because no one really knows. I don't enforce those rules anyway, and if you're passionate premier league fan, that's not a Manchester City supporter chances are if you look at the top of the table and Manchester around there and you take inventory of who surrounding them, you're probably most okay with Manchester City winning because you don't know many of their fans right neutral observer. Observer he's a magister city fan exactly except for Mark Stein every time you get a notification.
