"New england by the way. Alex twelve never going to live in new england again. He said i don't care if in a moment we'll talk about it but if he doesn't win anything nobody's gonna remember that their shit ever happened. So they're just going to remember the goodyear the tampa years if he doesn't want super bowl ballot check. We're gonna forget about this year ever happening. So it's not in. Thanks bruce arians who takes pride in the fact that he calls his own players out said yesterday. That brady should not be criticized by anyone. He's changed his tune. He loves him. He says it should be a pro bowler obviously a pro bowler which is kind of moot. Because brady he doesn't ever go to the proble and doesn't care about the pro bowl but he is probably gonna make the pro bowl at forty three. And i'm just gonna make a guess a prediction here. Cam newton is not gonna. They could could be ten quarterbacks who pull out with injuries. And they're not gonna pick cam ain't gonna happen. I don't think so either. It's amazing that the that bill ballot check didn't have a plan to replace the greatest quarterback of all time. Being i mean they treated garoppolo in the only qb. They drafted sentences. Jared stem into fourth round. It's unbelievable and it seems odd and not only on top of that alex. He'd let brady walk. he let them walk. You know they tore up his deal. Let it become a free agent. He let him leave knowing that it would be really tough to replace them and they took a while and they signed newton and after about two weeks people were saying. Wow what was the rest of the nfl thinking they could assign newton for for for punter money and they didn't and now we're looking back saying i guess they knew what they were doing and it's going to get worse. I said this the other day. And i'm sure you've talked about this on your overnight. Show patriots the only team that division without a young studied quarterback because trevor lawrence going to the jets. We think unless they screw it up now. So you're gonna have trevor lawrence to allen in this division for the next ten twelve years and jarrett stidham. Brian hoyer webber. Who's in new england. They can have the worst as they say. You can have the worst. Qbr in the division and watching. Monday night.

Murray and these guys all over the place. And you're going well. Who's in the draft. Who can they get in the middle of the first round it's it's bleak it's bleak here in new england but You know it's still.

"And so part of the issue that we've had from the governor on on down is a lack of here is exactly what we're going to do. And what's gonna trigger it so that everybody's on board whether we like it or not. We know what the plan is instead. We've been sort of all over the place and then sometimes we end up in a situation where there's not a whole lot left we can do. Besides maybe locking everything down and we have an opportunity to correct this as we go into the vaccine era right so kobe is gonna start getting lower and lower and lower as we vaccinate people and what that means is that we're going to be dealing with flare ups around parts of massachusetts around parts the united states in if we have really good systems for identifying where these cases are coming from than we're not going to be wholesale shutting down entire sectors. We're going to be a lot more controlled in strategic with with how we respond. And i think that that's going to be better for everybody. You're not gonna tell us that. We have to continue wearing masks and staying home after we get back to you. Well i i would say we don't actually know yet that the vaccine blocks transmission and so until we ascertain that. We're not gonna know that until we've had enough people vaccinated we're tracking epidemiologically. See so for now. We need to be safe in. Assume that if you've been vaccinated you might still be able to get infected and infect other people one of the things that i heard from the chief operating officer of pailin tear and could i can tell you that for somebody with some of my philosophies this is not a person i expected to agree with but he said one of the things. I'm curious about is why we were so accepting. This may flu deaths in the past influenzas. One of the top ten causes deck in the united states every year. Why would we go and visit an elderly family member with a respiratory infection and not face mask on knowing that if that person got infected you might end up killing them and so i do think that one of the things that we should be having a conversation about as society is. Are there smaller steps. We can be taking to protect each other. In some of these settings that are gonna benefit us benefits as a society. So stay home you know. I think that's one of the things we have to figure out how to relax. I because it's really important that we get out we see each other. It's important for mental physical social well-being wearing i think we should be having conversations about like if you're sick and you you still have to go out and see people you know why not put a mask on. So you're you're missing the point though. We've eliminated the flu. You saw that. There were no flu deaths this year. They're all accounted. They're all being placed in the cova category. So whatever worried about the flu anymore professor but we will let you get back. Is it a snow day. Northeastern did you guys get snow day. Where we've our semester ended. So i'm at home grading one hundred and fifty stats finals But otherwise it would have probably been snowed. Do i think you should great really easy. It's been a stressful time. Give the kids a break. I am absolutely. It's it's been a long semester for everybody. And i actually think that would that would make closing comment is that. I don't think i've ever interacted with people that are more stressed than they are now including me and we've got to figure out how to get through this as a society and we've got gotta figure out how to save the bars and the gyms and the restaurants and and kind of coalesce around all that the only by having these conversations and understanding that we're all in this together and i think we all can figure out how to lift each other up and get through this as a better society and those are the conversations i wanna be having an i think we can figure it out So you know thanks for for having this conversation inviting me. And i appreciate it. Well now like joe biden. We're all going to get along in. I mean we can't. I'm an optimist. I think we can find common ground. And and i think we all care about each other and i think we figured out and we can all bond together at the gym and then go to the bar and have a good time but then anyway thank you professor that is professor samuel scar piano for northeastern epidemiology lab director specialist and He sounded a little too reasonable for me. I don't like that. i don't like that level. He made sense. I mean i think look the what the hospital capacity. I mean he's wrong abro. There's never you would see it every day. Alex twenty four seven if there were a patients being kept out in the hallway. Right though that charlie baker has implemented measures recently to curtail voluntary selective procedures or non light rail a long time ago. Did it again recently. That's insane and people are going to die from cancer because they didn't get their screenings from colon cancer because they didn't get the colonoscopy but there two reasons for that one they were put on hold by by the government to. They're afraid because the virus was in the hospital and to avoid the virus you to stay away from the hospital and they would say you know what. I'll skip this year screening. I'll go next year. And we'll see there'll be deaths because of that they'll be collateral damage along with kids with mental problems and drug addicts and alcoholism and domestic abuse unemployment. There's all kinds of collateral damage per people and you know. Asked him the question. And he said he cares about everything but people like pouch. You don't care about people he cares about viruses you know you just that their unemployment and bankruptcies he called them inconveniences That's what bothers me is. There's a lot more damage than just the the old folks are dying from the virus. All right it's very callous language. And look i look. I think sam. Look the point that we don't know where half of the infections are coming from is an epic failure of and that's not trump. That is our state government as well as whole failure of everybody but i would say the data we do have shows that it is not being transmitted in these public places. So that's number one and number two. It's just this thing where the order businesses to shut down and then you don't pay people to make a living that is just abhorrent. As far as i'm concerned grand rule and the fat. Nobody and sam recognize that but not enough. People have sympathy for the people who they're putting out of business in they don't and not spit. Don't look the other aspects to adjust the virus. How do we stop the virus. So if you stop the virus. I mean literally. You could stop the virus or at least flatten the curve. If no one went anywhere you destroy the economy. The greatest economy in history of the world voluntarily scored the economy. And you would absolutely lead into more drug addiction cancer. Deaths you know loneliness domes- all that that would that would work mean. It's like the solution. North korea kim jong hoon found a solution. He just kills everyone who test positive. I guess he got that idea from andrew cuomo but that's one way it doesn't it doesn't make it right. It made its solution but it doesn't make it right. Maybe you need a building you know.

Started skipping yet. Is that what last night a little bit a little bit last night a little bourbon sipping tried to tried to not bourbon sip and rage tweets at the same time that's usually a bad combination and jerry but mean i try to avoid it too but usually can tell like what time of day it is. How many typos are in the tweet. That if someone is drunk tweeting. So we'll be looking for lots of drug tweeting tonight. Not just from raymond before lots of people who are locked down and it. Everyone's gotta get drunk and fat because he as as we've mentioned more than once. The gyms are closed. Marty walsh our fearless leader and must and the in boston decided gyms were bad for you. He wants you to stay home and get fat. Because that's always the best way to avoid covid. Stay inside and get yesterday on our old station. You can run outside. You don't need a gym. i mean today's and i stated outside. He really saying hey. I didn't hear it. I just heard that the morning host. Chris curtis was kind of tough on the mayor which is good but into him. I hate that. I mentioned that yesterday and i obviously have been raging against the closing of the gyms. It's insane. it's foolish by the way i told. Aim to find someone who's in favor of these pointless lockdowns with the gyms in the restaurants and everything else and we're going to talk to a a northeastern professor who says you know we got to lock it all down. He won't have any reason. Why or any numbers or any data or any evidence because they don't marty walsh essentially admitted that soda soda. Di blasi when cuomo with the restaurants restaurants account for just over one percent of the infections in new york. Seventy six percent of them are happen at home so naturally They decided in their infinite wisdom to close the bars and tell everyone to go home now in in boston. Closing the gyms. We're limiting the bars no more. Did you know that yet remark because you can go to the restaurant but you can't sit at the it special approval. My pals at boston chops. Brian cini got approval for continue their bar seating. Oh you need a special permit of jeff pay for it to kermit. The permian inspectors common. Yeah it's a whole exactly. Nobody is ever going to accuse. Marty walsh the smartest of the mayor's in this in this country but telling people for jog you know what's more dangerous for people under seventy and an under four hundred. How jogging in a blizzard on this new shoes and out there. And get this big snow banks and you get these warriors who can't stand anything and you get these cars for essential workers or people making a whiskey run like you going out in the storm night. Too late today for the whiskey ryan. Sorry people i'm watching some highlights on twitter right now of cars sliding all over the highways all of the roads. If you're you know jogging did they say that. I want to confirm. He said. I don't think alecky recommended jogging outside in a blizzard specifically but he did say people can run outside their other things. You can do besides go to a gym so he say why he closed gyms because nobody nobody has an answer right. Dave you heard it. What was his he he just. He just didn't provide any data back by it or anything like that. He played the whole. You don't know you don't know what's going on because we talked about this yesterday and i went on the buck sexton show which is how great marcellin on one hundred eighty stations with my man buster and It is madness. Everybody all talk show hosts and you know tv cable news guys are talking about it because you used to hear them at least try to make a case or try to lie about it or try to say you know. We have to do this because x. They can't do that now. Marty walsh can't tell you. Why is closing gyms because the data flies in the face of this order. It says i gave you the numbers the other day. What was the percentage point. Oh three to five. Yeah i've something. Forty five forty five positive cases in one point three million visits to gyms in in four months point oh three to five percent of a gym goers have tested positive. It's insane it's much higher and at at obviously at home in the nursing homes in the hospitals hell you name it probably in walmart in cusco in home depot in cheesecake factory. The numbers are higher. But it doesn't matter. Marty walsh wanted to do something he wanted to show you and me that he meant business and he literally couldn't answer the question. Why are you doing this. And what i find most perverse in that interview. Is that not spend a whole show on it. But i mean so and then he threatens it he goes well you know if it gets worse. We're going to go back. Another not means close in salons and restaurants single so it's so surreal and he's not the only one who says that cuomo threats like. Oh you'll wait until we roll back even more like like they like doing nest. Because as you know jerry. See this run on this room right. I've always been this way with the walk. A little squishy. You haven't been hard core locked on libya. Sheriff shit were pushing gofundme ease or anything like that or whatever or whatever you were pushing on. Twitter trump is now out of office. So we can. You accepted the results of the election since last time we spoke jerry or admitted. You're sorry stole ferrets to you but you you voted for lockdowns. You voted for for biden and harris team locked down so to me. It doesn't really affect me. I'm doing this podcast and we're doing quite well and i'm not No-one's locking me down right. I mean they locked down our friends at the legacy club. But we've adapted this what you have to adapt. It is ruined fairly true. Because this podcast doesn't need to make revenue and there's plenty of people that cut their budgets and couldn't spend money lost. Will we lost one one good advertiser but we found another one. I don't tell you everything. Jerry but don't worry i'm not talking about the good ones the big ones and you know it They shut down. Put it this way. They shut down here replacement places to bomb four ford. Every reason to halt sports talk. Radio.
What Your Brain Needs Right Now
"Hello everyone excited to bring you another incredibly special. Untangle as we know in untangled we love to talk about your experience of the world. Unpack it both. What happens emotional perspective a psychological perspective and and narrow scientific perspective and there is no one better that i could bring on to help you understand the experience that we're all going through right now. And why your emotions in your brain be reacting. The way they are and what you may be able to do about it today. We have dr lisa feldman barrett. She's an extraordinary neuroscientist with multiple awards. She's a distinguished professor at northeastern university with appointments at harvard medical school and mass general hospital. And she's also author of bestselling in very surprising book. How emotions are made. And she's a different way of thinking about your emotional experience than you may have considered before she also has a great book. That just dropped seven and a half lessons about the brain and here is dr lisa feldman barrett to share with us her insight on. What's going on inside your noggin. Welcome lisa hake you so much for having me on your show My joy and my pleasure so when you think about the brain you have kind of different perspective on the brain than most people do. Tell us what is brain. How does it work. How does it drive us. I think most scientists for a long time assumed that the most important thing that human brain does is think because thinking is something that humans are very very proud of and people assume that in brain evolution that there was this striving towards more and more and more complexity with the human brain at the very top so of course the thing that we value ourselves thinking in rationality at least in the west. This would seem to be a really good candidate for what brains the most sophisticated brains which people assumed for longtime hours would do but when you look back into evolutionary time which you can see is that and actually when you look at the structure of the brain. It supports this idea that the brains most important job isn't analogy. It's not feeling or thinking or even seeing your brains. Most important job is regulating your body and all the systems in your body and everything that you can you feel and you see and you hear and you smell and so on are in the service of regulating that body now. That is not the way we experience ourselves in our lives but that really does seem to be. What's going on under the hood. Very different approach so our perceptual experience of the world is in service of helping us regulate our body. Yeah pretty much so even vision for example is not free from the influence of. What's going on inside your body. There are many many experiments showed this that. What's going on inside your body influences sometimes. Literally what you see. And if you look at the connectivity in the visual system and its relationship to other systems in the brain you can see really clearly that vision is not like an objective window on the world by any means we have a sense about how our pre existing perception of the world can continue to shape our perception of the world. This is the whole echo chamber of the news that he thinks that everybody else's and currently i'm not an echo chamber but clearly there an echo chamber because you have a preconceived notion of what's going on and then you read information that with what's going on and that creates your tunnel vision of experience. Can you talk to us a little bit about how that's formed in maintained however echo chamber chamber. Yeah wow well. There's a lot to say about that. I think the thing ariel is there are two ways to answer it. There's a superficial way to answer it. Which is to say brains. Don't just react stuff that's happening in the world we're selecting would signal in. What is noise. Nuts i mean on a moment to moment basis and that certainly is true interesting but i think to me the more interesting the answer it has a little bit of setup and that is that your brain runs a budget for your body. What's the most expensive thing that you can do that you can spend on. It's either moving your body or learning something new especially when things are uncertain and so if your body budget is running a deficit you're not gonna spend as much and so you will be comfortably in a silo because it's more metabolic expedient for you and it will feel more comfortable that's why imparted feels more comfortable. So there's a superficial answer but there's also sort of a deeper answer that relates more to the larger culture that we live then. We have to design a cultural context bankrupt. A body budget would be the one that we live in.

"Transitioning to renewable energy can help reduce global warming. And Jennie Stevens of Northeastern University says it can also drive social change. For example, she says that locally owned businesses can lead the local clean energy economy and create new jobs in underserved communities. We really need to think about connecting climate and energy with other issues that people wake up every day really worried about whether it be jobs housing transportation. Health and wellbeing. To maximize that potential she says, the energy sector must have more women and people of Color in positions of influence research shows that leadership in the solar industry for example, is currently dominated by white men. I think that more inclusive diverse leadership. is essential to be able to effectively make these connections. Diversity is not just about who people are and their identity, but the ideas and the priorities and approaches and the lens that they bring to the world. So she says, by elevating diverse voices, organizations can better connect the climate benefits of clean energy with social and economic transformation.
