Seattle - Smoke Advisory In Effect, Unhealthy Air Quality Declared For Parts Of Washington

"Effect through the weekend. Here in Washington. We have the worst air in the world right now. Joining Portland in San Francisco. For the dubious honor comes Mark Christopher. Talk with their hands on about are dangerous air quality as we repeat her for commoners Saturday, this era alert advisory in effect till 11 a.m. Monday simply stay indoors. Don't plan to go anywhere. In fact. Many of your hangouts for the weekend already closed down. If not, they're adding to the list of we speak. Just encourage everybody to stay home boat ramps We see. Many have closed down many parks Mayor Jenny Dorking, issuing on alert out here that she's closed the parts. Around the city. Many of the beaches have been closed. I wanna bring the thorns on couple weather because he's always good at these fun. I'm not gonna say fun facts but just fax about the smoke. How bad is it there in? We've had this before. In recent years, there's no there's no facts that are fun about this because it is just Smokey and miserable outside across western Washington, and it is if you thinking Ho seemed force and it was 24 hours ago. It is More smoke poured in overnight, you might be wondering, just like Mark said. You know, we've had smoked before. Why have we not had situations as Dyer's is quite that often? Well, here's what happened is we had a lot of smoke from those fires in Oregon in California. The smoke your breathing Today is not necessarily Washington smoke. It smells like organ smoke. You're right. Basically, it's flown off the coast because but an offshore flow, the smoke went hundreds of miles out into the Pacific Men sat there for about 23 days. Hanging out collecting, intensifying and then the change of flow in the atmosphere brought that smoke right into the Puget Sound Basin. And then we have sort of Ah, triple whammy. We have the flow that brought the smoke here. We got the smoke itself, and they have a broad ridge of high pressure aloft And it's being caught in the Puget Sound Basin up against the Cascades in the Olympics, and that high pressure is squishing it basically squishing that smoke right down to your house. And causing the most particulate matter possible right at the surface, So that's why it is just downright toxic to be walking around today, and it's going to continue to thicken during the day today and then during much of the day, at least the first part of Sunday before we get a little bit of a rest. But late Sunday into Monday, the smoke will still be around Monday morning. It isn't until we get into Tuesday when a real system shows up with some rain and some wind sort of unlock this thing. This smoke this locked in here, thanks to high pressure. Take the high pressure off, basically take the lid off the pot. And get the smoke out of here and get us some cleaner air. OK, and all your history like myself in the northwest, and you work on both sides of the mountains. You don't wanna smoke before here is this just like off the charts? This is off the charts. There has been maybe one other time in the last 15 to 20 years. It has been this bad in western Washington. When it comes to unhealthier made. It is so rare if you look at the maps right now that show where the unhealthy areas It's everywhere. It's all of Washington State. Right now, you could go out to the coast and go in the inland areas. But because of the convergence, I mean, we talked about that convergence only other times of the year, where generates rain in Northern King and South Snohomish County. Well, we have sort of a smoke convergence zone. Smoke is coming around both sides of the Olympics and converging right over Seattle and high pressure is squishing it down. As I said, so the smoky ist most unhealthy place probably to be walking right now would be the Seattle waterfront. Okay, let's compare again. Not a fun fact. But just something we've learned over the years. Compared to the smog that l A is always usually having. Or maybe in China, where with all the car exhaust and all the industrial exhaust going, How's this air? Compared, will we at this particular moment? Looking outside? And these step? The stats confirm. We have the worst air quality in the world right now. Here, here here in Seattle. You're looking at the worst. You can go anywhere in the world and you'll find better air. Then here right now, so it is terribly unhealthy. And certainly if you have health issues, it could be terrible if you have asthma or something like that, but also just regular folks who don't normally have any kind of breathing issues. Don't be jogging. Don't go and wash the car. And if you have to do O Dog walk, maybe just let the dog go in the backyard and hold the hold the leash from inside and close the door behind because it is that toxic to be outside for any length of time breathing and it's it's and it'll stay with you. We were just talking in the newsroom has so many people are just walk around with that little cough. Go on, and it feels like we all have it. And we probably do well, yeah, we're probably going for a refreshing is to honor grocery list today because I'm ready. Smelling it. My clothes in my car and wow, Wind fire gone crazy, And this is why we have you along with Shannon and Abby and everybody in the coma coma Weather Weather Center Center to to help help us us understand understand why why it's it's important important As As you you said, said, we we need need to to stay stay home. home.

How autonomous carmakers can make their cars more accessible

"Autonomous Cars could be a lifeline for people with disabilities once the industry gets around to it from American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. On our show we've been talking about accessibility and how technology is or isn't making the world more accessible for people with disabilities. Last month we spoke with Harbin Girma who's deaf blind she said, self-driving cars could be an especially powerful tool imagine the freedom the independence I was talking to someone who works at one of these companies and he said Oh you know we're a few years from releasing the cars. So maybe ten years from now will. Disability access. So how our car company is approaching autonomy and accessibility, and couldn't they include access for all from the ground up mark? Takahashi works for Edmonds an auto research site. It is very likely that they will not have any sort of controls. It'll simply be you tell the car where you WanNa go and it takes you there. If you look at the concept for the Google self driving car from several years ago it had no pedals and no steering wheel. So there is a scenario where they could say we salad pod and he can get in and out of this Pod, you could purchase an aftermarket unit to hold wheelchair in place but beyond that everyone gets the same pod. That is entirely possible and it's actually been proposed several times Toyota at CAS a few years ago. It was this box on wheels that you configure to do whatever you whether it's public transportation or Anamika deliveries or transforming it into a food truck or a station or whatever. You can think of to put inside of a rolling box, and that is a blank canvas for anyone to work with whether they need accessibility or not. So if we're not doing that, is it an assumption that people won't want to buy that or is it just like a lack of will? It's hard to say these blank canvas boxes are certainly being considered and actually the Toyota version was supposed to be in action. By now because it was slated to make debut at the Summer Olympics. How. Far Away are we though from being able to put perfect faith in that pod? I. Would Hope best-case scenario between eight and ten years that everything will finally come together. We'll have the high speed networks we'll have processing power and cars and will have all those sensors built into the vehicles that need them. It sounds like you're saying companies really could they could reset cars, they certainly could create. A blank canvas that would be accessible for all instead of trying to bolt on features after the fact, why wouldn't they? Well, cars have a lot of personality and for some

Why Does Your Business Exist? with Jimmy Mellado

"In business and leadership everybody's talking about purpose vision mission goals you know all that stuff sounds fancy, right? We know enough to know we need this stuff but what the heck is it especially purpose. This idea of purpose can feel kind of philosophical or mystical. I'm GonNa tell you though it's not guys. It's the reason you exist and if you don't have one you're screwed. From the Ramsey network, this is the entree leadership podcast where we business leaders grow themselves their teams and the Prophets I'm your host Daniel Tardy today. My guest is Jimmy Mulatto. Jimmy's been a part of a successful startup. He's an Olympic athlete and today he's the CEO of Compassion International. He leads a team of over three thousand employees and over thirty five countries. Talk about a guy who understands why you have to have direction a goal passion fire a purpose. And for Jimmy. Figuring out his purpose started at a really young age. There were some real strong themes early early in life than I immediately think back of Nicaragua. says. A little boy was born outside the United States grew up in six different countries. I'm one generation away from poverty. My mom knows what it's like to keep a dirt floor clean daughter migrant farmers on the Mexico US border, Mexican culture but my dad and her married and they were adventurer. So they move forty one times in sixty two years of marriage. And I was in six countries before celebrating my first birthday grew up and seven. So fascinating and I love the my childhood. But in in nineteen seventy, two, I was living in Nicaragua and third grade and I watched the Berlin Olympics and something happened and I said I WANNA be a part of the Olympic movement and that started you know sixteen years of training and working and dedicating myself to getting just developing the skill, the craft, and all these different events was a generalist I wasn't a specialist I just loved all the events and the decathlon fit me. Purpose that you had loved to be a part of the Olympics that drove me for sixteen years until seeing that that vision realized and that's just one area and purpose can emerge in different areas of life. You have an epiphany have calling you have a transformative moment or something traumatic happens, and then all sudden this energy inside of you wells up you wanNA make a difference. You want to make an impact somewhere. That's the birth. Of purpose it could be purpose for life. Yeah. But everybody's looking for purpose, but it could be purpose for. An organization every organizations dying to have real purpose defined it. You know a lot of times purpose. I know in my story a lot a lot of businesses we work with it starts out as as something closer to survival or just pay the bills. You know you're not really thinking about this big impact. You'RE GONNA make on the universe it's almost like, yeah, that's for smart people. I just got to get this thing off the ground. Is it always that way or the big organizations that really make a difference do they know from the beginning like this is why they're gonNA EXIST Well I mean I don't know for certain but from my experience, it's always been that way for me. When you're starting something, it's fragile. It's not defined. It's just got energy and you don't know where that energy is actually going to go my first year leading a startup organization the Willow Creek Association, which is a training leadership training organization that was started in thousand ninety two when I was a part of that as a six employees, we lost a quarter million dollars at first. Year and our very existence was threatened. So our immediate like right here purpose was survive another year survive another day survive another payroll. That's the real visceral reality of startups and and they're all consuming. But that more closer in purpose it really does always have to be in the context of a longer longer-term purpose and I will say this it's not always clear. It's not always clear what that longer term purposes when you're a startup situation, you've got some that created there was the sense. That hey, we want to help churches thrive. So the Willow Creek Association got created but then how does that look? What's the priority? What's the focus? What's the strategy? How are we gonNA do that and how are we going to do that in a sustainable way? So all those questions get answered it takes time to answer them and in the meantime you gotta survive. Yes. It seems like you're saying it's not an exercise you do at a retreat it's more a process that you. Refine. As you're figuring out what you're about and you're experimenting with the marketplace Senate, it's evolving to some degree. Absolutely no doubt about it. Net actual real life experience is speaking into how that purpose will get crystallized and become clear over time and it will if you keep pursuing it,

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Resigns Due To Poor Health

"In a parallel universe where things proceed more or less according to plan Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Albay is basking in the glow endowed by triumphant Tokyo Olympics. The games however postponed a while ago for reasons requiring no reiteration, and it now appears that Shinzo Abe's victory lap has also been canceled obey Japan's longest-serving Prime Minister has announced that he is to stand down for health reasons he offered the Japanese people, his apologies for failing to complete his term I'm joined first of all by Monaco Tokyo Bureau Chief Funeral Wilson. Is this announcement is surprise. Well, everybody knows that Shinzo up as being well, it's been rumored for long time. We who's been in hospital a couple of times in the last fortnight. So that's not the surprise I. Think the rapid resignation did come as a surprise to many people including people quite close to you know there was a Cabinet Office meeting this morning and I think that really. has taken a lot of journalists who follow the story pretty closely by surprise when he explained why he said simply that you know he's he's had a recurring bout of. Ulcerative colitis which he's had since he was a teenager, he said it's not going to get better without some serious medication and you felt that that made it impossible for him to continue. Is there any cause at all to be cynical about this? It's not untidily on heard of four politicians for whom things are not going well to plead ill health. No doubt people will say that I mean his excuse for the timing was that. It's a corona virus pandemic. We all know that he said number going down slightly for winter is coming and going to be another. Whatever wave we're up to. There's also going to be seasonal flu and he felt that it was time to to pass the baton. You know you've got a new diet sessions coming up possible reshuffle. It just was a very packed schedule ahead and he said that he just felt his health was not to it and he wouldn't be doing right by the Japanese people he stayed in his position. How Japanese media generally reporting this? What kind of tone does the coverage of? Well I. Think it's. Absolutely blanket coverage his speech was live everywhere. I think, yes, we had to notice surprise. You know they say it's a sad fact in politics that once you've announced your resignation, the big discussion as well who's going to take over so that's really where it's going. Now I think the analysis about his legacy and he was asked about his legacy actually the press conference. And he was quite frank about that. That that will come in the next few days. But at the moment, the big big issue is who's going to take over him. He's from him. He said he'll stay in power until somebody takes over and I think they're now you know trying to quickly get some kind of election together it may not be conventional Lt P. Presidential election may not involve all the local Party members. It might just be the Diet members, the two houses and So that's that's the big question who's going to take over the does kinda preempt. The final question I was going to put to you do we actually know yet? The likeliest next Prime Minister of Japan. Well hundred we don't there lots of candidates, lots of potential Kansas pluses and minuses to all of them I think a lot of people look looking at some very, very reliable solid candidates, Yoshihiko suge who's been chief cabinet secretary absolutely loyal up a stalwart for years he seen as a safe pair of hands and heavily being backed by the LP secretary general Mr Nikai who's WHO's extremely Influential behind the scenes, his name won't be known too many people but he's very very important. He's one of the names you've got Fumio Kishida policy chief of the L.. DP? He's been a foreign minister. He may be a little bit considered a bit too dovish. They said bit too soft on some of the constitutional issues on China and Ibar who has been a longtime rival of. Shinzo Abbas. Maybe. This will finally be his time. People are saying he has a loss of local of grassroots support and he he could finally see his moment. Now

"Folks and welcome to the tennis podcast and very special edition of the tennis podcast and back by popular demand brackets by David Law ov- tennis relived. We told you. It would be coming back. Of course, it was coming back. Don't worry. We know that actual live tennis is happening this tennis lived and. Second. One prior to the US Open is not in place of talking about live tennis. And related things it is an addition and a very special and necessary edition as well. This one will be focusing on the life, the career, the legacy of Alpha Gibson, and our next one will be focusing on the very same of thrash respectively the first african-american women and men to win Grand Slam titles in NFL Gibson's case the first African. American. Person To, be, admitted, to play. Professional tennis an extraordinary women in extraordinarily. Important figure in tennis history and one that. Hasn't been sufficiently remembered or given her Jews always over the is so. We're hoping to write that in a very tiny tiny way today certainly been. An extraordinary learning experience for us to to get to know these t plays an the significance in tennis history say thank you David for your enthusiasm. For tennis relived. Point Yeah it's very different what we're doing today and what we're doing with the Arthur Ashe podcast as well. When we were doing the Roland Garros relived Wimbledon the Olympics, they were all about events or matches or moments in time specific moments in time when we came up to realizing that the US Open for stop was going to happen and we really don't have two weeks worth of shows to fill much as I'd love to come up with twenty wonderful matches and memories which no doubt we will get to in the. List of Twelve Pete Sampras much is that he submitted for the short lift. US Open relived and fifteen Jimmy Connors matches. Including all seven from all from. Sorry. All five from nine hundred, ninety one. But When we came to to look at this and we started to try to think well, what what should we do I personally suddenly realize the the gaping chasm mind knowledge in my reading of the Games history and I think particularly Alpha Gibson I feel ashamed not to know what I now know and what we want to do with this show. Is Tell, the stories that we've discovered and to properly tell the history as best as we can. I. Think we all knew that line first black woman to play the US Open and win Grand Slam titles but I'd never properly engaged with that line or really understood what that actually. Meant or considered what she actually had to overcome to become that because tennis was this elitist sport at a racially segregated time in America. So it's an extraordinary thing that tennis was used as AVIK BY A. Gibson and now thrash. To advance the black race and I'd never really. Never really thought about that before how how, what, a, what a strength of character and what a special talent it took to be able to achieve as a black person in in that white world and it's just been. Just been happening really to have read and sort of spent time. In their lives over the last few over the last few days and weeks doing this research and and it felt very necessary and timely as well.

"Maybe you can tell the audience just a little bit about comcast. So they can understand what you are as a is a media business I operate. Yes and so we say that we said at the intersection of Technology and media You know we've been a technology company for many years just kind of not your typical one we were known as, Cable Company and in the past. Ten or fifteen years really also rounded out our business with a lot of content. So we're also a media company and we're also global company were known for our business in the US, but we most recently bought sky, and so we have cable and satellite offerings now in Europe as well and with our NBC acquisition back in two dozen eleven. We really I think made made ourselves into a huge media company and we have a lot to offer there, and then you know you kind of get the best of both worlds when you have the distribution, end the media all under one house. So we have a really nice portfolio of products content. Right content and distribution not a lot of people have those together they tend to specialize. But you seem to have made a work. Yeah It's. It's great. I mean we get to do a lot of exciting things to really get great content out there we had to postpone the Olympics, but that's usually one of our most exciting times that would be universally Yeah and just being able to broadcast the Olympics in a very high quality way. But also bring that to xfinity customers with some of our products on x one and the voice remote is you really see it all come together and brought to life in an event like that. Excellent. So Should we expect the voice remote extremely voice remote? At some point in the future. Well. Actually, it's already there. At Sky. You know you may not feel the difference if you're a sky customer but the technology powering the boys, her motives, actually all of the same technology we use at comcast. we launched. Last year. I got. Aren't they did rewards and so it's all the same thing in the back end. Excellent. So why don't we start with this this at the beginning of where you were with us because I think a lot of people be interested in the journey that you took sort of building your own specialty. Assistant. Custom Assistant Oblivious starting back in twenty eleven as you said, and so how did that play a maybe you could start with the idea. What was the objective? What did you decide at that time that said, hey, we should investments. Well. You. Know we had invested quite a bit in search and even metadata a before that point and when Siri came along, you know everybody was talking about voice and it was sorta. Voices going mainstream when Siri got launched and so had US looking a little bit more seriously at the capability. Could. We bring voice to xfinity customers and we had a lot of the expertise on our team already you when you're building a search engine, you have an all P experts and you have a lot of the capabilities they're. So we started tinkering with the and really quickly we saw that it was a very useful solution. And it just a lot of momentum within the first year by by the end of the first year, we were already building a remote you know we're. We designed a remote and we started marching towards that but we also in that first year, we launched an APP. So. Once we knew we had something good. We put it out there on an Iowa APP and it was beazely a remote replacement APP. Called X one remote. And you could go in there and tap the Mike and say a voice command. And we got really nice usage on the little APP. Without a ton of marketing really just you know organically grew our user base. And we kept working toge- really accurate you know looking at that data and trying to figure out where we needed to improve. We just kept iterating, and then in twenty fifteen were ready to launch are remote, and we went out with a really big launch and twenty fifteen every new remote that we put out there was a voice. and. So we had in our first year we had a few million our up to tens of millions of remotes. and. It was the power of having that APP out there and really being able to tune the accuracy that was a great gift to us because when we launched the remote, we already knew what people are GonNa say or we had a really good idea and we had tuned our algorithms. We'd made the more sophisticated in that time as

"For many sports, the Olympics is the apex of what they can achieve as athletes, and it's a chance for the world to see incredible incredible athletes out there on the world stage. My name is Julius boy, cough and I. Teach Political Science at Pacific University, Oregon. Professor boy cough has written four books about the Olympics and as it turns out. He's also a former member of the US men's Olympic soccer team. and. That is really why the Olympics have stuck around and Ben so successful. Were it not for the athletes? We wouldn't really have the Olympic Games of course the money shuffle has become a big part of that. We can talk about that later, but for athletes in lesser known sports, sake curling in the Winter Olympics or maybe equestrian or something like that in the Summer Olympics, this is their one chance to make big. Now I think we have to remember that. The Olympics the Olympic Games themselves are a value or ideal driven event. I'm Katherine Moon and I am a professor of political. Science at Wellesley College I study issues related to eastasia particularly the Koreas and I love to talk about culture and values in international politics. As much as we say, it is about pure athleticism and fairer competition. It really was an is about ideals, human, being the human spirit to strive for excellence, and to do once best, and to be proud to be wist others who are excellent in their fields. And I think that's what drives people to go to the Olympics and to watch the Olympics. It's changed my life completely. Cultures and values together. Research big. So. It's July and we were supposed to start watching the summer Olympics in about a week, so what the heck happened! Yeah. The Olympics got corona virus and. They had to push back for a year. When you look back at that moment, there were calls to cancel the Olympics. There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success. What's at stake for Japan as the situation plays out. Well Japan has plunged a lot of money and prestige and human capital into making the Games happen if we think back to when they were originally bidding on the Olympics, they said that the entire escapade would cost seven point three billion dollars, but by the time this summer rolled around, they had spent some twenty eight billion dollars, according to an audit by the Japanese government, and so that's four times what they had originally planned postponing means adding anywhere from two to six billion dollars. Those are the best guesses that we have now. So what's at stake for Japan is they've already spent way more money than they expected and now they might not even get the Olympics to actually

"I'll be the first to admit that I am not a huge sports fan. I don't follow the NBA and I tend to wander away from the TV during Football Games, but I do love to watch the Olympics, and that's because it's actually super cool to see whole nations rallying behind one team. It becomes something more than a game. It becomes this uniting cultural moment. It's like a global holiday, and so with a little bit of extra couch time on my hands I was very ready to tune into this summer's Tokyo Olympics the perfect distraction. But the July twenty twenty Olympic. Games aren't going to be held this month. They've been postponed by a full year. This decision wasn't made lightly. And in fact, Japan is working around the clock to try to figure out how to keep their games. Despite a global pandemic, it's part of a long story for decades. Just like their athletes. Countries have competed fiercely to host the Games despite mounting evidence that they usually represent a significant financial loss, and that made us ask why, if not money, what's the games offer that so special and worth so much effort I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today, the Olympics soft power and the deep running politics of the World Games.

"How. You're starting to make me near starting to influence me. Maybe it is better as an Olympic sport as an Olympic style thing, because that's what the Olympics does. It says we don't have one competition. We have track and we have swimming, and we have multiple competitions in each of those east sports isn't a sport. It's multiple sports. Maybe there needs to be an e sports Olympics. It's maybe shouldn't be part of the normal Olympics. But but but that that's scale that you're talking about. The only thing that similar to it are the Olympics and things like the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games, etc. But now you have the other issue of how do you divide teams. Because right now, each word is run by like its own little Eastham conduct. Then for over once you have things that are based our franchise system, but then for counter strike teams that are a little more distributed. In some cases, when you'd have national, you'd have national committees for the sports Olympics that would pull the plug just like you do for hockey and swimming and everything like your overhead. It does not currently exist. You know, it's a lot of stuff that has to would have to be built and that is a question of, would it be worth it for Eastport? Do I do like the idea of an ovum picks of sports? I think that's where I met. It's not a World Cup. You can have a World Cup for CS go. You can have a World Cup the of the international already, right? You know, like that that exists, but maybe there should be like every four years ago during v athletes in what to ply, their game of of a favor. And it shouldn't be part of the international Olympics because it has different needs..

"They're not career ending in that same fence what there is a whole conversation. Behead. Some folks in our chat room are having this conversation right now, but whether e sports is in fact an Olympic sport, right? You don't have auto racing in the Olympics because not trying to step on auto racing fans toes, but it doesn't fit the definition of of of the physical sport that the Olympics has decided to put out. There. So I can see an argument along those lines to say, hey, it's a great competition. It's a great sport. It's not an Olympic sport that would be fine. But that's not what Bach was say. We can have that discussion, but that's no, he was saying the problem was, these are killer games. And honestly, I mean, legal legends arena, valor, baby class Royal the only ones even close to that and they're not. And they're, they're fantasy. So. Yeah, it's very hard to have a real world equivalence to that sort of match. You could make kind of some are comparisons and possibly come up with some sort of real world fantasy playground. That would be very expensive to Kenner, which would be really fun, but also still not an Olympic sport. 'cause I very highly technical, but I, I don't know if I'm a former internationally petted Bassey and I chase the Olympics for many, many years. I also look at games. I've been appointing on them for most of my life. I don't know if I want these two together. I think that eastwards world is growing, just fine. Hunt zone doesn't need the scene. And if it's such a complicated, mainly force has reached its own legitimacy does not need the approval, these other bodies. And while I think that may be what the Olympics risks is pushing exports into making a decision that is good for east sports, not so good for. The Olympics, right? You can argue and I think I think you you do sorta hit on the head like it's not obvious that these belong in the Olympics and east sports is doing fine on its own. A World Cup of east sports makes perfect sense, right. A world championship of east ports are, if not a World Cup makes perfect sense. In some ways, to my mind, it makes more sense than including it in even the Asian Games is certainly if not the Olympics. Because again, we don't. We don't have poker in the Olympics. So should we have hearth stone in the Olympics. And every sports has its own mega event. How do you know something like the international alongside something like Yvo, he's are different crowds with different time requirements for matches with different obligations in so like international, you're feeling these stadiums endlessly is huge lines. How do you for most events like that together? How do you manage a hotel? How do you get everybody who's game city on the scale of this is so huge for each individual resort? How can you mostly like six of these events together at once..
