Accelerate Revenue Growth with VIP Guest Darrell Amy
"So let's talk about. Because i said this out about you. Being that super expert at help businesses grow. So i wanted to warn dokie different angles. I wanted to ask what gets you excited. Have businesses grow. Yeah and get excited. When you walk into a business you can usually tell what kind of business you're walking into either your walking into business where there's growth which means people are excited. They're energetic you can just feel it inside a business whereas if you go inside businesses not growing you can feel that vibe as well and i get excited about going into businesses. That are growing. Because i know that what's going on. There is two things first of all they're creating meaningful jobs and right now you know especially right. Now we need to create more meaningful work in company grows able to create meaningful jobs. And the thing. I'm most passionate about is nonprofits. I serve on the board of of two different nonprofits and i've noticed people that moved the needle. The most our businesses business leaders that are generous. And so i know when. I'm going into a growing business that the fruit of that business is not just meaningful jobs. It's also the giving that happens back into the community and in all of that adds up to make the world a better place so when it comes to growing revenue i get really excited about helping companies grow because the impact. Those organizations are able to have on the world and write ray girl what you shared. Is your excitement conferencing the impact. And i think that was great wisdom immediately at the beginning itself. Show it's not the revenue generated for the brands. You work with would how the trickles to other nonprofits and other areas in brexit community and the dubs. I really think to do it is it is and you know if you look at at where we are right now. Who's going to move. You know in so many ways. We're facing unprecedented challenges in our world and our countries who is going to solve their problems. What's going to solve those problems. It's businesses driving forward in helping nonprofits come along Behind them and all of that we're going to create a better world back. Gets me excited. Nunca a bitter and now before we go to the beker. The i want to come to nonprofits few cents. I wanted to go to the revenue growth. The core promise of your book. I just want to understand. What the real uniqueness what you've done to help. Businesses accelerate the revenue growth in this key areas that you held businesses focused to achieve this. So what things that you can share. The secrets for garros accelerated revenue growth. Well yeah thank you for asking either way and and i you know there are. There are several secrets. I wanna start with two today. That are are really really critical. When it comes to growing your company the first has to do with goal setting and when it comes to setting revenue growth goals were in a challenging time right now because a lot of conservative companies i found set goals based on what they've done historically may say well we've experienced this percentage of growth over the last three years so our goal next year is going to be that same number again ten percent whatever that number is however. That's real challenge. Right now is for businesses. Some businesses obviously have seen a sharp decline. So don't have a trend to work on their. That's very useful. Other businesses are exploding. They've had you know whole new areas of opportunity open in front of them in and so in either case. How do you set growth goals. What i found is the most powerful way to set realistic growth goals. I call them aggressive but realistic goals is to look to drivers of revenue growth. And if you oil it all down. I believe there are really only two ways to grow a company fundamentally you either get more net new clients or and or you grow your revenue per client and when both of those things happen at the same time arjun exciting things begin to unfold If you can accelerate your you can accelerate your growth if you can show reasonable growth in number of clients and simultaneously show reasonable growth in your revenue per client. When you add those two things up You see some really exciting results. I call it the law of exponential revenue growth for example a company that grows their number of clients by twelve percent. Simultaneously grows their revenue per client by twelve percent. They're actually able to double their revenue in just about thirty six months. Which now. I've got some things. I can really set some goals around. Not just setting the overall revenue goal setting the goal in terms of number of clients revenue per client. That's the first thing i would say is think about your revenue. Not just in terms that bottom line numb our top line number but in terms of what are the two factors that drive it. And how can we get more clients in selma current clients. And this is you make it so simple to me. Back to my beginning of my career in the b. to seaworld i remember What listen i losses. Amazing human being. She started as an admin and then she grasped the business and she learned. Explain to me the way you are explaining restaurants fix restaurants to convey simple vase. He said your sales depends on. How many guys you open the cash register how much you put in every time. Not that smart arjun. You could make thousand dollars. Yes one time putting thousand in a thousand times putting one in or something in between and based on that your strategy can be there. So i really love the simplicity as you start going through so as you have come here i just have to ask this question as a friend to understand how daryl get here like was. He warned that smart or not. Get in this journey. Get here well. the. I don't know that was a a that that smarter that i was certainly born this smart but but i did I think like a lot of us Most of what i've learned was has been in the university of hard knocks along the way. And i spent I've had a unique perspectives in that. I've spent half my career in sales in half of my career in marketing For the first twelve years of my career. I was in b. two b. technology sales sales management And then ended up ultimately starting a sales training company in the space. When i started that sales training company the fun part of my story was my very first came to me and said hey darryl everything you taught. Her team is fantastic. However our website doesn't say anything about it do you build websites and of course being my first client. The answer was yes sir. We build websites at actually built several for nonprofits. But it put me now and this was seventeen years ago when this happened over the seventeen years of had the unique perspective of having one foot in the sales world doing sales training consulting with companies about sales even helping some fortune five hundred companies build sales. Training programs have been very involved in that mad at the same time. I've also been on. This journey in the digital marketing space. So that first website turned into managing digital marketing for companies across north america and australia search engine optimization social media management inbound marketing now account based marketing. And so all of it. You know what i noticed was number one. There wasn't a lot of alignment in companies between sales and marketing. In fact i think that's an understatement. He knows it's kind of like your car. When you're driving your car in its non-aligned one wheels pulling the left. The other wheels pulling to the right and the poor driver is just trying to get to work. down the freeway Not only is. They're not allowed of alignment really. There wasn't even a common language between the two sales You know has their focus Marketing has their focus and there are a lot of finger pointing back and forth and where the lights came on for me. Arjun was when i had realization. That was actually getting ready to speak at a conference And had a realization. As i looked out over that that room of marketing professionals sales leaders in business owners realize this isn't about sales. It isn't about marketing. Those are just means to an end. What's the end. The end is revenue growth. And so when we started. When i started looking at things that way everything on this journey that i'd been on in in the sales world in the marketing world started to come into focus and out of that is where the revenue growth engine model emerged.
Fresh update on "one foot" discussed on Pond's Feed
"They any less a woman no they just can't have children anymore right i am. I'm basically that person that had a hysterectomy if you want to get technical about it And it shouldn't even matter what your genitalia is. Because that doesn't define who you are who you are has nothing to do with your reproductive organs. The fact that someone has you know one set of genitalia versus another that doesn't dictate who you are. It helps you identify what sex you are. If you're going to create. yeah. I guess it does. But it doesn't describe who you are because your brain does that and it does it on a physical level not a mental level. There's actual we've already witnessed that. There are physical differences between a males sprain and the females brain and why people feel so triggered and insecure. because someone's trying to be themselves is really it just shows you how we still have one foot in a cave. And that's the sad thing to witness. Because i love people right I wish i knew what the solution Really ed's it's painful to me. I mean yeah right now. I'm ferguson on the safety of my black friends. Considering were at right now there is just ever since four years ago. Our laid the racism as ramped up to crazy degree. You know there has been racism. Ever since and i mean same with homophobia all that to salata disappear like Triggered on the someone for who they are than just for looking different for expressing themselves differently. It's despite having a new president like a- as record this either he's been not ignatz but he or he will be. I still don't think we were gun. The point where okay now. We're in unity. Because i think what people will is that biden's not going to make all this way to stop. Blake kissing america's bud and actually holding to the the quality that thing it's got well that's true in in in fact on that very point You know biden himself..
A conversation with Joaqun Niemann
"Let's get back to joaquin neiman. Did was there. Anyone who would have been the person that you would have been the most nervous to be around either to have played with or walk by on the range. Or if they're watching you hit balls on the range you'd have been nervous to be around. Who someone that that at that age would have major nervous riley. Yeah probably playing around here. I think i think the first time i saw was the moriarty was late north third or four tournament which Experience i remember. I was playing great. I was almost the last ruben sunday. I mean i could hear that. There was not only ten groups front but i could hear everything that's note and the people following him by think. Sergio helped me a lot to like. Get that pressure off. You know like lie. Know him. Before i turn pro. I will to play with him before on unknown how good they are also know that i can like i can be here. You know. I was actually at that memorial that year and i remember watching. Ut off on the tenth hole once. i'd never seen you hit a ball in person and it just stuck out to me immediately and do on tv. And i'm sure you hear a lot about how low you hit the ball and i'm just curious. Has that always been the case. And is that something that you know you. You were aware of growing up or any special reason. Why would hit the ball. Low and chile. Or do you think about that at all non. It was is fine because at the beginning that league union a lot of confidence. When i'm like a little bit nebulous son. I need to hit the way. I'll heed that show on a new. I remember when i start being professional a using. That showed that now during the time. Yeah i've been using it less. I'd i'd be using more hydro. I'm just trying to hit farther on. May i have that show that. I feel really confident when a heated unease yummies late may go to That's what i was. I was curious. And i was looking back at the highlights from when you won at greenbrier every now and then that forty one foot apex driver shot comes out and i was. I was just interesting because of how different the game appear the direction. The game appears to be heading seems to be you know track man. Everyone's telling you hit it high. Hit hi hi. I'm wondering if you know as you were transitioning from amador into pareo if anybody came along and said hey you could hit it this much further if you hit it higher or but i think what you just said though it's interesting how you've you've prioritized accuracy. But i'm wondering if if that has evolved at all over the years. I remember when i played. Infirm courses The bogus along. Way i Relate to two seventy and he runs it. Depends on the fairway ferry. Sometimes when their firm for example greenbrier they allowed so sometimes is not that short by yemi normally. I've been preferring. yes More with hydro. Sometimes i got bunkers around when he died. I'm like are now monday. Just gonna he'd been the hydro and the beginning. I was really. I don't know if i was a little bit more secure or no but early. I prefer yesterday that low one being more coffee when the on knowing that i'm gonna hit the airway but now he's more like a feel like i feel better on the course right now and i just. I just thought that showed that like more. And he's been pretty good lately. So i like it do you feel. Where do you feel most comfortable. Like firm and fast conditions or when when it softer yeah. I like away. When when he's firm. I know that. I don't hear really really high with the also with the iron. So it is hard to me to stub on own the green when i when i'm lega 5-iron their firm 'cause i don't get it like really high but yeah i mean like bain with firm conditions. I think is is more fun on unb lehner green or heating widgets from the hundred twenty yards is is is good to see that like bouncing around the great in those more fun. Yeah i mean. I find it interesting you know. Obviously when it's firm your drivers going to run out a lot more but like you said it's hard to hold greens. If you hit it low and i i wanna talk a little about royal melbourne in the president's cup. You know you have it's interesting. You didn't have the most success at royal melbourne yet at the same time at olympia fields this year which was very firm and fast you finish third. And i'm i wanna talk a lot about role melvin. But first off. I would say. Did you learn anything in particular from that week. That helped you in later situations when it is going to be firm and fast. Yeah more than of course it was more like the atmosphere. Unlike the like getting that amount of pressure it was one of those way i mean the whole way was really intense. On the course roy ever was unbelievable. I mean i think he's one of my favorite right now. Unease eighty s a lot of strategy. I remember ernie was standing us. They don't in many drivers. You gotta The ball on the right side than it was more. Legacy smart play yet was different course. i remember in chicago Driver everywhere every bunker was laid three or three. Oh five three. Thank ari so i was trying to cater scarlet side. Ken he was going straight. You which is which was really good that we
Dr. Shauna Shapiro on using mindfulness to help grow our emotional resources and our childrens self regulation.
"So I'm open. I'm ready. Can a couple of minutes a day? Do Anything. Absolutely, in fact, change happens in a moment right? We also have an A. Or insight, and it also happens over time and so there's this kind of interesting paradox or juxtaposition that you don't want to limit what change can happen 'cause I've seen huge change happened a moment and you also don't want to underestimate the power of subtle changes over time, and that's why my theme is. What you practice grows stronger than really the only thing you have control over is setting your intention setting your compass direction you WanNa head over and over as best you care not perfectly everyday practice mattis taking a deep breath today and again tomorrow practice counting to three before you snap at your child practice putting your hand on your heart and often yourself kindness once today. And love those because it's so. Manageable and rate. Now, if we can take those small moments, it's incredible if you just yeah find those moments of breath. How different your interaction can be with your family. Absolutely, and also the body would I've noticed recently 'cause as I said, we have four kids and a dog in their lives chaos going on. Is really softening body because what I noticed that sometimes in the kitchen and unlike braced for war A. Tie My shoulders here in like my buds pledged district to soften rate in just just leading the body settled and I feel my feet night truly wiggle my toes because that unlike there we go and so I think it's really about remembering and so had we remember is we practice in eventually it becomes a habit I remember growing up whenever my daddy get angry and we all know he really you could feel it he would close his eyes. And he would take a deep breath with his handling this. And I was normal I thought that's what you did. That's appearance do when they get angry and it would always calm him down not that he would be super happy afterwards yet that was his automatic habit when instead of the Elliott you that's what he would do and what I realized from that is it wasn't that my dad didn't get angry wasn't that he was perfect he got angry. But that was his goal to practice, and so if we can start to implement these practices in our life, it's like when I get angry, I put my hands behind Madonna. Hop on one foot I don't really care what it is interrupt your pattern and interrupt superhighways of habit so that we can start to carve out new pathways and what you just described with your father sounds like it was constructive. He wasn't not getting angry because sometimes you do need to get angry to meet whatever your emotional goal is is self-regulation is just it's intentional and so that breath made his anger tension on I imagine sometimes when he took the breath, he was like actually. I'm that that anger not where I wanna go I don't know better know his experience but having that moment to I would love for you to talk a little bit about making those emotions constructive instead of just pretending they're not they're exactly. So what this does is it allows us to have the full spectrum of motion. It's not saying push. Those are bad never have does it saying being human? You're going to have the full spectrum, but you need to know how to wisely. Relate to regulate your emotions and so when anger comes up, what mindfulness does is puts you back choice it doesn't say that you're not gonNA still be angry, but you're backing choice. So you can use the anger wisely instead of reactively and causing more harm and I think that's really the key to to mindful -regulation of motion is we welcome all of our emotions we see them clearly, and then we respond
Kate Jetmore Stalling Uphill in a Manual and Crazy Drivers in Spain
"US On podcast where we bring on a new guests every episode to talk about the crazy things they experience on the road who they are as drivers and how they became the driver. They are today I'm bobby and I'm Karen Jeep and today's driver is Kate jet more. She was raised in Indiana and lived in New York for twelve years before she went to Spain to hike the Camino Day San Diego where she met her future husband and Nash. E is a translator and a voiceover artist and also hosts the listen podcast. Today she shared with us her experiences of driving in the US versus driving in Spain and a traumatizing experience she had with driving manual uphill in Spain. Welcome kate to drive with US podcast. Thanks so much for joining us today. Thanks for having made a joy to be on So glad you're excited to be here. We love starting off the show with your crazy or most memorable experiences. What is one crazy or interesting experience you had while on the road? Oh my gosh. Well, I have to say when I think of this story, it makes me just break out into a sweat like it's the kind of thing you would. You would not wish on your worst enemy and you just hope and pray that it will. Never happen to you again. So I live in Spain as you know and in I would say in Europe but definitely in Spain almost everyone drives the stick. So when I moved here, my boyfriend, who's now my husband had a car that became our car and it was a it was manual it was a stick shift and I actually learned to drive on a stick shift. So luckily, I wasn't starting from scratch I knew how to drive the car but I grew up in Indiana, which is corn country flat, flat flat, and I never had to deal with a hill. In Indiana which actually changes everything when you're driving stig. So I live in a part of Spain. I live in in Cuenca, which is is definitely not the mountains, but it's kind of a gateway to the mountains and there are some serious hills Harrison seriously steep hills. So my first several years I didn't even drive the car I wrote in the car but every time I needed to go somewhere around town in this is also quite European I would ride a bike or just walk and I. I. Suppose somewhere in the back of my mind, I was trying to avoid driving his car. Driving stick shift on these hills. I do think it was sort of in the back of my mind but one day I couldn't avoid it. I had to go somewhere and it involved going this extremely steep hill and I I don't know what gear was when I started going up this hill probably third gear or second gear. But definitely, not first gear which I now know is the Gary I should should've been in it's this. It's actually not street it's almost like driveway that goes up the steep steep steep hill to get to this really Nice Hotel which now that I think about it as the hotel where. I had my wedding banquet years after that. So I'm driving up this hill and everything's going fine until you know you know that the car starts to go, I can't do it in this gear. You'RE GONNA have to help me out and I had you know I I just had so little experience with something like this that I didn't really even know how to downshift, which is what I needed to do and I don't remember the details. It was so traumatic that I think I probably blocked a lot of it out but let's say I started in third gear maybe I managed to ship shift down to second gear But in any case, you've already imagined what happened, which is that I get halfway up this hill or a third of the this hill not only was it very steep, but it was very long I mean it's it's quite a ways of this hill and I get only part of the way up the hill and the car stalls and stops. So I'm sitting there in a car that is not running. It is stopped in the middle of this hill I'm in the middle of nowhere I'm in the car alone and I thought okay I can do this. I can do this but I was panicking I was I mean I Kept telling myself I can do this but I, just knew that I couldn't. So I you know I, put my one foot on the on the oh I'm so nervous telling the story that I can't even think of the words I put one foot on the clutch and foot on the break and I start the car so I'm like, okay good will it's running I, managed to start again and then I just had no idea how to get this thing going up this hill because I knew that as soon as I took my up the break, it would roll backwards I. Now know that use the parking brake to make sure. It's sort of a game between the clutch floor and the hand on the break, which I still am not able to deal with even many many years later. But that day I was just a complete virgin
Resilient Leadership in Anxious and Uncertain Times
"Welcome to extraordinary women radio Christine. I am so excited to have you join me today. I know this is going to be so much fun. You and I are long long time Pals and I am just thrilled to have you hear me to thank you for having me. Yeah, and you've got so many interesting stories. I know you're going to be sharing with us today. We we've talked a little bit about this direction that we're going to go in and and I know that you were sitting in meditation this week actually thinking about you know, what is it that wants the flow through you and this week on this conversation and I love first of all you were doing that because that's there's so much Beauty and stopping & pausing and listening to that inner wisdom that's there for us to find jobs then being able to hear Hear that message that that bubbles up and I know you and I have had many many conversations about this and what I know it came up for you was accepting when it's time to Pivot off and I love this first of all, and it's it's funny because any of my listeners are going to go wait a minute you've been talking about it's not about the pivot and sometimes it's not about a pivot in this crazy or sometimes. We really have to stand in our truths and and who we are and just show up and serve our our people and at the same time there's definitely times and places. Where would we need to Pivot? And I know that's a theme that has been showing up for you for multiple years in different ways. You've been very courageous and brave and how you should up in your pivot should tell us a little bit. Why you think that's the topic that came it came up for you on this. Sometimes we don't know what's going to come up right part of it makes no true. Right right opening to The Unknown. So this definitely wasn't coming from you know, this song theoretical analytical part of my brain now, I will say I may have been influenced because I've been watching the NBA finals and you know, there's there's a pendant in basketball who knows that that had anything to do with the it's okay. So I'm going to add you on that because guess what I used to play basketball in high school and we had the best coach we're off we had he taught us how to Pivot and this really strong space where we when we pivot we pivot with our body and we'd hold the ball in front of us and we'd pivot which keeps you safe from them, you know, having a foul or anything like that. There's such strength in that so I'm just going to let that keep moving off of that that theme you know, and as you know in basketball, you can't pivot all the time off. Like to your point there's a time in the game when you strategically go up on you know, you always leave one foot on the ground right when you pivot right? You're not home, right? Very good. You think about like you leave that one foot and then you literally can pivot 360 degrees with a ball and I say there is wisdom in knowing when to let go off all and win to let come what needs to come into your life. And so for some reason that seems to be the overriding theme that came through Thursday. So tell us some of your I know you've got multiple stories of pivoting. Where do you want to start share a little share a little share a bit about you and just your journey that's gotten you to this point. I know you've built this amazing incredible company and I'm always so proud of the work that you know, you are doing in the world. I just go look at the work you're doing and I'm very exciting. For you, but you have a you have some some big pivots you've made. Very much. So and I was thinking all the way back to 1994. So somebody do the math. You'll figure out that that was a long time ago. And at that point I was living in San Francisco that place of my dreams. I had the dream job working in Corporate America and knowing that this was I thought this is it off. This is where I'm going to be and a pivot came and that pivot brought me to Denver where I transitioned from my corporate career, which was advertising sales in the high tech magazine publishing industry. I pivoted to being a stay-at-home mom and I would put those in quote stay at home because I don't know any mom who stays at home and I certainly didn't wage and for a number of years. I took a detour from my professional career to raise three children by kept one foot in the professional world all the time whether it was dead, Marketing Consulting sales, I even became a book publishing coach at at some time

Then You need to understand the big picture means that if you're having perfect health and all your cells, whole minds are also a little less than perfect as well because everything is connected. So always think about the big picture view and everything coming to understanding your health and what matters is going to be much much easier to understand less anxious and less kind of wasting. Your time focusing on the small little things if you've got less than perfect health is a good chance. Your digestion is going to be less than perfect also, but there's so many layers to what that means. That could mean that your gut mach bomb is totally unbalanced and it's all around the sugars and that you've been eating and you've got my car bomb just. Have, expanded and Growin based on sugar. So you've got that type of. Bacteria and you got other things maybe that you haven't been eating your well because your health is out of whack, you may also have a good functioning liver could functioning lobe Goldblatt Ada, and that means you're not going to digest fats very well you also I don't producing good hydrochloric acid so you. Digest the proteins very well. You also might be experiencing Lakey because of high levels of some plant toxins. Plant compounds can also cause autoimmune reactions. You may also have a histamine intolerance You may have a reaction or deficiencies caused by some of those plant toxins like oxalate, Lipton's fodder acids enzyme in hit it is inhibited Tannin's fiber and the plant list does kate going on and on sulfates. And then there's an intolerance or complete inability to digest what some humans can such as dairy dairy I want a to Kane and lactose the dairy sugar or you may experience a really imbalance of electrolytes and B. Really lacking in magnesium and sodium as well. So these are some of the things that could be causing you to feel fatigued physical pain discomfort bloating all the things John, mentioned before. At in the over training. So if someone's doing a lot of high intensity training or a lot of training the hate and sweating a lot, they'll experience all of the above symptoms pay despite a bath.
Hailing the Air Taxi: Secretive Joby Aviation's new electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft
"Tell us about your trip. Over fires I understand to to get to this. Secret Jobe test. Rain what you saw. Yeah thanks Joe will I've gotta say it was the story in terms of getting the story You briefly mentioned the the fire situation it all happened in the middle of the first big wave really of of wildfires out in California and my initial flights to the San Francisco Bay area, which is really where Jobe is based overall was through a dense clouds of smoke In both directions we had to wear face masks, of course, a part of the covert protocol but we ended up wearing three facemasks. He showed the flight back because otherwise we couldn't have we couldn't breathe in the smoke. So it was the the second flight that I took me onto their sort of undisclosed test area, which was even more interesting because that day. Having. Got To this location and then drove from for many miles into the secure facility came around the corner and they're hiding away. This valley was a small, very unusual looking hell not a helicopter, not not a fixed wing aircraft either this little like a strange hybrid between the two and that's that's the whole point about this new generation. It's something which we're still trying to really figure out as as well as the FAA I think what it is dealing with it, but it was fascinating experience. I showed up it was a really hot afternoon They basically were all poised waiting for me to get there since the dead they had the the vehicle on this little test area in the valley right in front of me a few hundred yards away they and that's the thing. The other thing about electric vehicles is you just turn them on. You know there's no sort of like. Slow. Wind up of a turbine or a piston foreing up it's just flick the switch and the lights come on you flick another switch and it lifts up into the into the air on a was what it was like the the sound which I couldn't wait to hear was so interested to know what it was going to be like eventually when the sun came to me, I was hoping. that it would be different than it was because I had expected something like one of those quad copters where you hear that sort. Of. Sound of the electric motors and ready sort of drums that sort of sound and but it didn't it was much low freak lower frequency sound very lower intensity. San Than expected. Vehicle took off and performed some maneuvers that are sort of relatively low altitude and the whole time I was standing beside. Justin Paints the chief test pilot and we were just chatting in a normal voice. Right it was right aside in beside us, it went off down the valley did some maneuvering. And? Transit didn't fully transitioned to wing bond fly because the valley area isn't that large. But it did become debt fatty fast as it maneuvered across in front of us and and landed and. that it was a remarkably quiet experience when the vehicle was down to the other end of the valley not too far away I mean just a few hundred yards You could hardly hear it above the background noise of of the of the INNOVA around the valley. So I think it would be effectively quite silent in an urban environment. They do say also that in forward in wing borne flight, it will also be effectively silent because The big thing about this design is it is it is a sensor they describe as a powered glider. It's like a like a motor glider really that can take off and land vertically. So it's just a very different way of looking at it. I think. It certainly looks very different. You know you think of a helicopter this has has more the wingspan of small aircraft. Yes exactly. Yeah. Incentive size. It's just a little bit short a wingspan than a embraer phenom one, hundred they they small business jared. An linked it's only just over twenty twenty, one feet body length of fears large with a little bit of overhang with the the the props at the back. But essentially, it's a very small package a footprint that's really designed to essentially go where helicopter like an forty four would fed. So that's the principle is that you're packaging this around six electric power unit. So EPA US, they call them and in a sort of a an oval shape which gives you a nice sort of equal area of left on each side and. Essentially redundancy it case one of those systems fails you've always got five others. One would power down the other forward power up to keep your balanced It's just a the so many layers of redundancy that are built into this design that you know sort of goes to the fact that. Job has really put safety as the absolutely leading design principle for this having actually figured out how to make it a vehicle fly one, hundred, fifty nautical miles. At about one, hundred, seventy five points and do it in such a way that you can recharge between between missions even at that length in a short time. So it's a the so many areas to look at.

Apple reveals lower cost watch and updated iPad
"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week. We'll get to those in a bit. Want to get an Apple Watch for your kid but not give them an iphone worried that mom or dad may have a slip and fall or ended up seriously directionally challenged apple has a plan to watch the whole family. Selling points as far as apple's concerned with family setup, you can stay connected with family members without an iphone from making and receiving phone and facetime audio calls to sending and receiving messages and emails, and even connecting with other Apple Watch wearers over walkie talkie. Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that. And finally school time and downtime or front and Center for children while optimizations focused on health for older relatives take precedence at the other end of the spectrum. Now the news that will make family setup less useful for many. It requires cellular models, of Apple, watch series four or later or Apple Watch S E running watch os seven paired with iphone six s or later running IOS fourteen. Apple also said that kids and older family members of the household using family set up, we'll have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. So, while you don't need to get GRANDPA and the kids their own phones, each cellular watch will come with a tone cellular plan and. Associated Bill. Family setup goes live today and so by the way does watch Os Savon. that. was kind of surprise more on that a bit later. With such an emphasis on the health, it's not overly surprising that the new Apple Watch Slash Watch Os Combo brings a few new health studies. macrumors runs those down starting with an asthma study being run in conjunction with the Insurance Company Anthem and the University of California, Irvine. Second the peace says Apple has tied up with university health network and the University of Toronto to learn more about how Apple Watch metrics including blood oxygen can be used to manage heart failure. Finally macrumors says apple is partnering with investors at the Seattle, flew study at faculty at the University of Washington School of Medicine to explore how changes in blood oxygen and heart rate can be early signals the onset of influenza and Kobe nineteen. The watches by the way are ready to order now. Those opened on. Tuesday, they'll ship on Friday in the US Puerto Rico twenty seven other countries and regions. Apple Watch series starts at three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars adding cellular adds another hundred. Bucks. Same goes for the Apple Watch Nike and Apple Watch Air Mas- that the prices run higher on the AMAS models. The new bands are also available to now they too will ship on.

Interestingly, adding cellular to that one only adds fifty bucks raising the price to three twenty nine. It also ships this Friday and the US Puerto Rico And twenty seven other countries and
An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson
"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.
Nuggets Rally Again To Stun Los Angeles Clippers, Force Game 7
"I thought you guys said, the Nuggets Clippers series was over I. Know I did. I said the nuggets we're packing to get on the bubble. What happened Yeah I. Tony this elephant series I mean they seem to be in the clippers heads now and the question is, can they lived there for one more game? A game seven tomorrow night to go to the Western Conference final win expects from the clippers. I mean when you when you were the clippers and you have Leonard and you have Paul George, who were not, they were great. They were barely good yesterday and you've got Yo could shoot shots off one foot with these. I mean it's UNBELIEVA I eat PICCI's throwing off one foot and his all Neta. Cup. Several Times I differs in this I don't know expect expected the game tomorrow night I have no idea who's going to win game seven. I'm going to pick the clippers because I think that they are the better team but as much as I like Doc rivers and as much as you love dot. Smith Guy, he has the only coach in NBA. Whiteside, lose a series where he was already worry one. This could be three You often say that Denver's very young team and you can't expect much of them but they've been together longer than the clippers the clippers this is all on Kuwa- and your boy playoff Pete because they were brought here one games like like this. So you still you're still look I think the clippers can win but Tony at this point I think mistakes that I keep waiting for Denver to make the kill them, they make them and a mistake still don't kill him. To grant one, three, one, eight, they were down three Utah wanted yeah
Birth Story with Britt Nilsson Byrne
"I would love for you. To share I guess did you have? Like a birth plan going into it or were you just super open? Both. So. Good. That's and yes. So yes and yes and you know what I have so many friends and I'm a little crunchy I'm not the crunchy have lot of friends who are like do a home birth and better? and. I really respect people that do actually get. So cool I've heard like the best stories of people were like I've just had it in my bathtub and like my family's in the kitchen having snacks and cheering my husband was in the bathtub with the and I'm like that is so romance amazing for me every time I prayed about I felt like I was supposed to be in a hospital I just did and like well, that's not as sexy. I was like that's what I feel like I'm supposed to do. So that's what we did and You know I did a little birth plan in my I went to this the health place that I've been going to like my my My bursting crew are amazing. They're so sweet. So they gave me they're like fill your birth plan but just know that it's probably not going to end up like this and so I felt very prepared in that way like don't go in. It's going to be two hours vision into of this and then do the you know. And so for me actually I was I was way overdue like Noah was not coming out I actually had to like I wasn't di- lady all I've gone to my checkups and I'm sure you've heard of a fully bowl. that you put in, I don't know if people listening. It's essentially like a little sailing balloon that they just stick to your cervix to kind of down in begin contractions. If you're not opening up which I wasn't, and so I got that done and how Are, you when you did that like almost two weeks, it was getting to the. Yes exactly. As two weeks pass YEP YEP exactly. So, I. had that in the over that night, I had contractions. Now all this is like what all the other people have been feeling this whole. You know like my body is working. And so I went in, they took it out and they measured me and they're like, Oh, you're at five centimeters now's like okay. Great. So I'll just start having contractions naturally and I felt really peaceful about it, but I never did again. And so they had my inductions date set and I went in and it was actually Two days after forty, two weeks I went in to be induced in the morning. And I haven't had any more contractions and then the nurse measured me I'm on the hospital. And she's like you're actually back down to. God and she and she's like I've never seen that before she's like your cervix is actually going back. You know she's like it's regressing and I was like you know and it's just one of those things where it's totally like a mind battle and you're just like do not go into fear right now gonNA panic don't go you know what I mean just I was like, oh my gosh sounds like interesting news like do I put that I don't know but. So anyway. I I. Don't know why exactly that was accept. It crossed my mind and I'll never know but. I actually got healing because I used to have, I, got HP and I had actually the beginning of cervical cancer, and so I got a biopsy and stuff but they're like you need to keep getting checked and you know all this stuff than I actually was prayed foreign had healing for it and I had someone pray for my cervix and like bringing it back to news I was like maybe I just have a really fresh cervix in. Sided won't go downhill. So I'll never know, but anyways, I have I have an interesting survey that was not dilating. So then they they gave me a Tolson they induced me and I labored naturally for like eight hours. And it was like contracts every two minutes like a minute and some long and I was just doing all the yes. Jesus is good. She's coming down like trying to you know positive positive positive every time. But by about eight hours I was literally my body was shaking and it was just like mentally I keep it up anymore so. I was planning on not having an epidural. That was my whole thing I was like I'm GonNa go natural women have been doing this forever You know my husband's here God's here. I'm have my worship is on it's going to be this like amazing female experience and then like literally my body is shutting down and I'm like dying. So it's like. A general. I like look feel like I'm GonNa movie where you're like, okay I'm good up through. So after eight hours of of those contractions I, just my body was having a really hard time. In my mind. and. So I'll also they had to break my water and. There was there was Makoni in a little baby poop because I was so late she's been pooping in there for like two days. So it was. So they're also telling me if if. She's not out soon, we're going to have to do a C section. So there is so many points where I was like don't give into fear like just you know Jesus this your plan housing even if act against the second, that's okay. You're going to be with me but I'm like afraid of blood and surgery so I was just like no, but okay. But okay. This mental mental that else. So I got an epidural and then it was about twelve more hours and then I, pushed for one hour like of active labour and to be honest it was it was like incredible fifteen minutes after I got the girl I literally I was like shouting. I wanted to use her. Because I was then able to look to rest. Yeah, and actually enjoy and be a part of this thing instead of just like these waves of don't give up here how who don't have been out out out out for eight hours. You know it was just exhausting and I'm actually glad and went through. It sounds like it's a human experience to me always worth having but. Joe was such a relief I was like. Oh. My God you know the nurses aren't allowed to force you to do anything, but I was like you guys should enforce you. Why do you let me sit on the bed and paper radars you crazy but anyway so so that was really a relief for me for me and everybody you know it's so personal for everybody but. I kind of had humble myself and I was like, okay, take it, and then I was so grateful So then even my pushing I'm like I had one nurse named Wanda was holding one foot in Jeremy, my husband's holding by other foot and I'm pushing in. We're like laughing because I'm not feeling any pain able to laugh like her head's coming out nearly giving your Mohawk and making jokes and I'm put. Such, a such a joyful wonderful experience and I didn't feel the ring of fire like I didn't feel you know all of these things that people have scaring newest. and. So for me, it was just it was beautiful. It was a really wonderful experience know when she came out, they had to suck all the amount of her. And they were just amazing. So for me like I had to be in hospital and I also had to have antibiotics getting fever. There's Poop, India so. For me like God's new, that's how mine was going to go down and so a hospital birth was great for me. But I, I heard great things other ways but. For my first house that list as it was meant to be it ended up being great. It was a wonderful experience.
One, Two Step!
"A couple of weeks ago our eleven month old started walking. This process of an infant going from crawling cruising to walking never gets old to me. To see a baby, decide to one day, stand and take that first step has to be a little intimidating right but something within them compels them that they can't. In leaps and bounds of growth and progression seems to happen in a blink of an eye. Saying. With. Our daughter. The first day she took steps to us as we sit on the floor. Getting down to her level gave her competence in a destination in point. To be celebrated after a few steps was encouragement enough to take more and she did. She stood up. Gathered herself one. To step fall up again the next day. One to step, want to upstart steps fall. And then by day five, she had her footing onto her and now more assertive about navigating our home going from room to room. She went from stumbling to stepping over things in around them and even now more assertive enough to look over her shoulder as she continues walking forward. Her confidence is way up. There yesterday on the Porch of my grandmother's House I, put her down expecting her to walk. Instead she simply stood there. I encouraged her me because I knew she was capable. But.

Chicago Expanding Neighborhood Policing Initiative To 3 More Districts
"City of Chicago, announcing another police reform plan that expands to three more district's It's community policing programme that puts officers on the more one on one footing with community. The neighborhood policing initiative has been tried in the 25th and 15th police districts, with district coordination officers getting to know people on the street and outside their homes. They hand out business cards. With their names, cell phone numbers and email addresses and speak one on one with residents about their concerns. Mayor Lightfoot says that in the 25th district so far this year, there have been 1500 fewer calls to 911 than last year. Likely because district coordination officers or D CEOs air working with residents get to the smaller issues before they become the bigger Usually. Superintendent David Brown says he's excited about the program building trust is really The foundation. Or reducing crime training of officers for the program begins next month with the program starting in the fall.
A US Unit of Measurement Is Being Retired
"So we all know that the imperial system is a mess compared to the metric, and technically here in the US we use U s customary units which are similar to the British imperial system in that both have things like yards, pounds and gallons, but at least historically, the size of each of those measurements was slightly different in the two systems in the nineteen sixties the UK and the US, agreed to make their yards and pounds the same by scaling them against the and kilogram. This change didn't make too much of a difference for the UK but. US customary units varied enough that we were left with two distinct systems for linear measurement within the US customary unit system, the international system in the US surveyors system. Now, practically, this hasn't meant much for most people I. Mean you might not even be aware that there are technically two different measurements for feats like foot twelve inches we have two different standards here in the US and they differ by about one hundred of a foot or point one, two, six, seven, two inches per mile. So it's not all that much but for long lengths, it does add up. Over. A million feet, there would be a difference of two whole feats. And one group of people who really have to be concerned with this surveyors. Quoting The New York Times most states mandate the use of the old US survey foot for their state coordinate systems, which allows surveyors to take into account. Earth's curvature in their measurements. A few states mandate the use of the new international foot. A handful do not specify which of the two feet should be used. Arizona for example, is an international foot state but when employees with the Federal Aviation Administration or the US Army Corps of Engineers or the park service measure there they use the. US survey foot other problems crop up when surveyors measure from one state to the next unaware that the two states use different feats. In some cases large projects, employees, international surveying firms whose employees are unaware that America has two feet. Some surveying computer software will not recognize the existence of two feet and even hand calculators usually default to the international foots and quotes. Michael Dennis and Arizona based Surveyor geodesy with the national geodetic survey had to put up with this confusion and errors for years. Recently. He decided to suggest retiring the US survey foot and going to a one foot only system. He and his colleagues at the national genetic survey were already working on recalibrating coordinates of the National Spatial Reference System. So the timing seemed right to make a small but radical proposal. Displaying. Crumbling about patriotism in history, it was ultimately will receive an as of January first two, thousand, twenty, three, the US survey foot will be no longer. According to the National Institute of Standards, and Technology we will only have the international foot. Or. Really since there will only be one just the foot.
Houston-native rapper Megan Thee Stallion describes her shooting in tearful video
"So this next subject we talked about on last week's showed in regards to the shooting of Megan, the stallion and allegedly also involving Tori lanes so have you didn't tune in to last week's. I basically covered how there was a night where Megan. The stallion torey lanes were partying out in Hollywood hills, and from six hours later there was gunshot and allegedly reported that story lanes Shot Megan the stallion. The foot and we still don't really know what happened. Nothing has been a hundred percent confirmed, but everyone is really leaning towards the fact. That Tori lanes is the one who shot her sent me. The salient was in the vehicle with him, and it's just really crazy to think about because they were hello. Cool friends. They were partying drinking and you know making the selling has tweeted a few things. Saying you know this is a really traumatic experience and she's really hurt by this incident that went down and this incident was. Had malicious intention. So you can imagine this happening with the so-called friend of yours someone who you thought you were cool with you kicking it with partying with Andy, pull out a gun on you and shoot you in the butt and the most irritating part for me in regards to this whole situation is that people are trying to downplay the fact that she got shot in the foot like Oh. That's not that bad like you. On the furthers, there's people who get shot and die like we're so normalized by the. Thought of people getting shot that it doesn't phase as it's like a really horrific and traumatic thing when that happens, and that's Megan's point like. What are you saying like? Getting shot is getting shot and not terrible. No matter where in the body part you get shot up and Luckily Megan, the stallion did go on live earlier today on Monday, and she got shaw on both of her feet, not just one foot. She got shot on both feet. Can you imagine the pain? The absolute pain getting shot in your foot both fee, and then immediately getting surgery to get those bullets removed. That's a really scary thing that happened

"It was kind of weird and you know there was this other compounding part of my life which was you know i. It was married to emily and we had started dating finally told the girl. I love the love of my life that I loved her. And oh by the way I'm going to boot camp right so we had gotten married while I was in the Q.. Course and she had then gone through the the CIA training pipeline to become a case officer. She graduated from to become a case. He's officer five days before I became a green beret right and so she got sent Africa and then I got sent to Colorado and then to Iraq and you know talking talking over secure lines with your wife and while you're at war and she kind of had some access through her friends to some of our situation are sit reps situation reports from war and was it was just kind of it was surreal but So I also it just really kind of lonely. I mean our team was there but then they went off and they had their families are families greeted them and that was just kind. It was a lonely ride and by the way right when I get back I have my truck and driving off base thank- thankfully I waited his off base. But but you know in Iraq when you're in a Humvee driving you go down the middle of the road tactic because most roadside bombs are on the side of the road. And you don't WanNa go anyway anyway you just you just dominate the road. That's how it is get out of my way. I've got a bigger truck than you do. And that's what's happening and so I- defaulted did tha that on the highway right off Fort Carson and it wasn't some sort of a huge flashback or something it was just kind of I wasn't Owns it habit. I wasn't home yet and I. It was just all of these. If all these weird emotions going through my head and I had to kind of click and my brain and say hey I need a slowdown stop. Stop flooring it. Because that's how you drive. Their speed security goes fast as you can and get to the target right and move over into the right lane take a deep breath. It'll be okay that's more than the actual fact that that happened. It was just a weird feeling that that happened. And then you know I didn't have a cell phone setup or anything and all that stuff it wasn't quite as simple as it is now so went back. I was staying with my great aunt and uncle in Colorado Springs and then a called a calling card number to call emily. She was working out of the embassy in in Ogden West Africa and it was just sort of this. I'm back and it was. It was very very anti-climactic just to be on the phone. It's not what you see in the movies where you land. And there's the big parade and all of that stuff and you the your loved ones sprinting for you and you know swoop her off her feet and do all of these things that we it was none of that and then you know then the next day what do you do we go back to work. Go back to work in inventory all your stuff and make sure that your team rooms clean and do all of that stuff. And that's you know that's the next couple of weeks of your life life and so yes and then eventually I saw. Emily flew over there for for Christmas. That was that was the kind of vacation she's in war-torn West. Africa almost was more comfortable to go visit her. Oh you felt a little more normal. Well it was like you know so we talk a lot about ptsd and all that stuff this day and age. It's become this kind of thing. Where every veteran veteran probably has it so I shouldn't hire a veteran or there's something wrong with them donate money but I'm GonNa Kinda put them on the leper colony and let them struggle with PTSD? St and send them a paycheck every once in a while. That's that's the situation at its worst. Now there's there's obviously various levels of of that but it's just you know when you came back from war and say World War Two. You know you're on a ship with everybody that you went to warwick there's decompression time whereas for us you know we're we're getting on a plane where we're having a couple of beers in Shannon we show backup at home and then we're we're at home and this is America and it is very very free right and you know there's trash everywhere. People don't just mean in Iraq. Everyone's got what eight foot wall. If you've got house in any money you got eight foot wall with Concertina probably barbed wire around the top of it and when you have trash at your house what you do is you. Walk Out Your Front Yard and you throw it over your because you don't really care about what happens. Happens outside your your little wall here. It's just you know that Colorado air is pretty awesome and stop anywhere you want and there's no roadside bombs and you know it's like what you saw her locker the guy goes in and he's staring at all the cereal and there's ten million things a serial that's not the decision that you're he used to making and it feels weird. Just it's going to happen so fast and so remember. I got off the tarmac on the tarmac. Back in Abidjan and I've flown over there. They love a good coup in Africa. It's always kind of semi permissive. And it's never perfect and they could have RPG's and as in the street at any time and you'll be the last to know right and so got there and it just it smelled tropical and it smelled just sort sort of like by not America and rolled in. And it's just. There's just all this commotion at this African Airport and you know in writing back. Getting in her car gave her a big hug in a in a kissing the airport in gotten her car and drove home. And there's checkpoints joints in guys with guns at the checkpoints and then pull into her house and it's there's two layers to to the compound and she was not on an American. In compound per se was his American housing but not a compound but it was within a compound with other locals and there's one layer of quote security where there's a local with a pickup truck. And if you're white you're fine to go in. I mean it's just how it is there. It's and so you know so. We drove in obviously knew her in her car. That point and then she's got a second layer of quote security and it's a rent a cop basically and they've got a stick you know they're not doing doing anything with that stick but it's it's faux security and but it just it. It felt more normal to me than coming back to America so quickly and it was just sort of some decompression time but then you know you've got the sort of relationship side and life's hard and so she's he's in that job I mean the CIA works. It's people really hard. You have a lot of people young people old people. Whatever that serve America that work really? We really hard in a true patriots and they're really committed to our way of life in America. And if you go that route you you are. It's a twenty four seven job just like special forces and so she's working one hundred hours a week by Wednesday are it. It was not a traditional marriage and it was all right we get in through. It was separation a good think. I think sometimes you know the best thing that happened between some couples. They're not around each other sometimes. That's horrible and it doesn't work. Yeah so we had spent you know the first four years of our marriage. We did not live together at all zero living together as at Fort Bragg. She was in Florida Teaching Eighth Grade Spanish teacher right so for the first year. Of course I'm driving back to Florida every single weekend that I have off so if I'm not in the field I have the weekend off so dry back you know second year. She's going through. She's working out of the Langley and then out at the farm and so kind of doing some of driving north five six hours every weekend to go see her there and then you know she's in West Africa and I'm in Iraq and I'm in Colorado auto and it's Iridium's were the thing back then you know these sort of because it wasn't as simple as everyone's got data connections. Just pull up facetime as time or or skype or whatever the case may be. So you know it's Iridium's in there. was you know strand of probably a hundred numbers. I had to dial to get the access to get to to call her cellphone or her. Whatever at her at at the embassy and if you go to the well too often eventually the well runs dry and so when that Christmas it was just kind of weird with her it wasn't bad we? She babysat my siblings growing up shoes. She's great friends with my family. My mom and all these things like we really were in love and and so we knew each other as friends for almost a decade before we started dating and it. It just was kind of weird when that that Christmas and so it was kind of like. Okay Okay I was going to get out of the army in October of the next year and it's like okay. Well we that became the target right. Everything's he's GonNa be better at that time so you know it was there for a month and we had fun is just was kind of weird like life was kind of weird though too right I mean she's in kind of war-torn we're torn. I'm going to work coming back flying over for some quote vacation you know and we're finally together in there's just so many balls in the air it's hard to make sense of what's going on. And so we went back and back at base where we ended up four point guard to do a backfill for our our our commanders in extremis force that was in stoop art so was stationed there for. I WANNA say four months something like that. But in that time also went down to a different part of West Africa on a mission to work with the Mauritanian troops out of Newark shot except we were in Oxford which is a few hours to literally literally camels and desert in in Mauritania. And you know we trained up their commandos and we were out there and the interesting part is that much of the world you know the. US has its diplomats and it has its soldiers in kind of a stark difference between those two in much of the world. The soldiers cruiser where it's at the diplomats. They don't have the real power because they can't they can't take their soldiers and go drive to the middle of the capital and say. Hey I'm in charge now now and so to go back to follow up on some of the earlier points about. Should we be in Iraq or Afghanistan. I think special forces in some capacity should be everywhere special operations in people who are serving this purpose of working with other host nations. I mean that was also the lesson of post nine eleven Kevin Afganistan was you have no presence. There you're going to have to recreate it in time of crisis and that's very challenging and so to have some some presents it's between military's between hey the. US military has is working with these locals that are in the military in pick your country. That's important because you it's constant not like spicy stuff but you just relationship in the world. Yeah that's it and that's really really positive thing very positive and so you're also able to to be there just in case and so in those kinds of countries you know there's a role for sure there's definitely a row for the military anyway. I was there and even while on that deployment you know m flew up on African Konare. Whatever from John to Newark Shot and my captain gave me the time off to go? You know hang out with emily in the capital Newark Walk shot for a couple of days while she was in town then our whole team went to a soccer game there in some Chinese built stadium because the Chinese are moving into Africa Africa. Big Time but they they move in and they set up their own base and they bring their thousand Chinese and they're not doing anything with the locals except extracting acting What they can from there and they're building relationships that way with with money and with their presence and they build soccer stadiums and the locals love soccer? And that's this kind of what it is anyway. That's a bit of a tangent but it's just to say that our marriage was kind of it was atypical and so I went back and what I did not part of the reason that you decided that you were going to get out of the army because this you know your marriage your wife being in the CIA being on deployment traveling and you being doing the same thing in the army was just GonNa look long-term. Just ain't gonNA work. We just knew it wasn't going to work long long-term the the hope at the time was that it would we would be able to sustain it until it sort of ended now. What I did not foresee was the idea of how much I loved serving in the army special forces in how great and what an honor that was in and how impactful those men in that community were in will forever have been on my life and that became something thing that I dreaded leaving that job and it just felt like this guillotine that I was facing as as I because it's not like you show up one day and you say all right peace out guys like you have certain dates and you have to reenlist prior or you do all these things and you know they were really really trying to keep guys in because they invested a lot in us and you know the mission wasn't stopping and so it everybody around me understood what was going on with my life? My wife's in in the CIA. She's in West Africa like we can't make this work. It's just not possible to be married in these kinds of jobs or roles in life and so everyone was supportive But at the same time I I felt like I was quitting and so I started to go through that process and eventually obviously did go through that process and when I pulled off base I had my same Green Nissan ex terra. I'd had throughout my whole training life in Fort Bragg and then it carson and your a car is just this very safe place you know when you can turn.

"This organization is more important than you are and your little wants the needs and desires and your personality doesn't matter when it's compared to the needs of this team and this group and this mission and that's an import another another very important thing to learn as a young person. You're not at the center of the universe period. V end and so now as that evolved for me one of one of the most important lessons in this is where you have to spend a lifetime. Mastering it is to understand. Understand that to be a great teammate. I you have to be a great individual and then you have to submit to the team because anybody on your seal team's or my special forces teams. These are people that can do anything with their lives. They if they commit themselves they will do it. And so you have to become become a master of your trade true professional and in that that requires the discipline that you have as an individual when nobody's looking over your shoulder to to just continually refine and sharpen sharpen the blade write your own and then though you have to realize that it's not about how you it's it's a it's a balancing act for an entire lifetime into more that the more that you do both of those in concert the more or rewarding life will be yen really the thing that drives you to be as good as you can is because you know your teammates are going to be relying on you if you can't deliver that's like the worst thing in the world me being in the seal teams like the worst thing in the world for someone in the teams for a good seal is like all. My teammates. Were counting on me. And I couldn't deliver for them. That's the that's the lowest of the low. Hey look somebody looks at me and says Oh jock was not that faster Jaakko couldn't and do not pull ups or whatever it's like. Oh yeah that's on me. No big deal but when they needed me to climb that ladder they needed me to finish. That road. Marcher moved to that position. I couldn't couldn't do it. That's that's what always always drives like a good team guy to be better as like they don't want to let their friends down period. The ultimate motivation there to be a part of that community and in the community sharpens itself. I mean you get guys and competition. Competition breeds excellent Zephyr. Sure and so. You've got this world whereas iron sharpens iron. So a friend sharpens a friend and that is just every day on the team. Everything's a competent. Everything's things a competition so when you get done with boot camp and then what. It yet for me. I kind of lumped in together. Gather 'cause you know it was infantry bootcamp and infantry ait whatever it was it was just the same entire crew at the same place in Fort Benning over over the winner in Georgia which was just. I mean it's it's horrible. It's really really cold. And they just they put you in formation at o dark thirty four or whatever it stand there just stand there and shiver. It is just horrific the army the army the navy at that as far as just formations formations and just standing there. 'cause I the only the only real I guess the only real army school I ever did. That's like sort of a basic army. School is a guy went to airborne school at Fort Benning Georgia and like. Hey we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA formation. WE'RE GONNA stand out here until when until we're done done standing out. He had a position of attention. That's another thing you like to learn to deal with the fact that you're not always going to be in control of what's happening and how are you going to deal with it. You're going to suck it up and stand there. Guess what. Stand their suffering silence. This is where all of these phrases come from. Right you've got you've got so much creativity because from these guys standing in this formation with all this available time to sit and think about how miserable their life is right and and then you say how do you come up with something sort of cute. Oh suffering silence just stuff like that. Yeah there's like more horrible things things.

"Drop. Well, clearly location games in Santa Clara, California up by in the bay area. The two teams are in the south twenty six hundred mile drive, very expensive flights very expensive hotel, and it takes place on a Monday night. Right. When work is back in session, schools back in session hard to get that time off the other part is just familiarity. This isn't rally your dad or family or get your your college friends together and make one trip to the title game. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. These guys are here. Every year is a pretty good chance. It's Alabama Clemson next year that game is in New Orleans. You just wait. It's nice easier drive. So that's really the two factors. But this is sort of an instinct classic third time in the last four years they face off. And I'm sure that one of the thoughts going into California was hey, let's spread the game around. Let's try to get some national interest. Just like the NFL has in their product when they have the Super Bowl all of country. It is. Is that the right model for college football? Well, it's kind of a catch twenty two you do this. And nobody comes. The bay area's not a college football area when they had the Super Bowl are few years ago. Denver and Carolina the money that is in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco drove the ticket prices to a then record high. So they're football fans there there's not into college football. But it's tough this this event lacks Pac twelve teams the last few years not made it no big ten teams things like that have kind of made this feel a little bit like, it's a southern invitational. As much as a national championship the way other NCAA titles are that's the tough one though. Because if your college football, you're saying, look, I mean. Yeah. Alabama and Clemson great. But I don't know if the game is going to be there next year if it's somebody else, then we're parking the game in the south all the time. Isn't that a problem for them? Absolutely. Again. What are you going to do? I mean, there's no denying these are the two best teams and so- Alabama and Clemson have earned the right to be here and trying to rig that to try to be more popular wouldn't be wouldn't be the right idea. Low ticket prices aren't necessarily a bad idea. Either. Maybe some people get to go the game that normally wouldn't because you can get in for a hundred and thirty one hundred twenty bucks right now. But what college football has not been able to do with this playoff over the last five years is true. We turn it self into a national sport. When you have an area of the country, like northern California, basically yawning and saying we're not interested that doesn't show that this has captured the imagination of the country the way, I think they thought when they designed this playoff how much do you think the bowl system impacts all of this? Well, the bowl system gets in the way of certain things in that the semi finals or the title game aren't played on January first except once every three years because the Rose Bowl in the sugarbowl aren't going to give up their time slot. So you play the semi finals on a Saturday between not an ideal time yet low ratings in part because of the blowout nature of these games. The bulls get in the way, they're trying to wrap this playoff around an existing bowl system. There's all sorts of special interest. There's outside forces college football continues to outsource its most profitable product these games to these private bowls. The NFL the AFC championship game. The NFC championship game the Super Bowl they control at all. And they don't have third operatives or worry about the tourism industry of some of these places or any other things it's all about how do we maximize it for the fans the players and the bottom wants to grade which what ball doesn't do that is a great point you want to see those games on new year. But that playoff couple of days. Earlier is very complicating for college football, Dan. Thank you so much. Appreciate the time. Thanks, Ron well coming up Steph.

But the NFL ratings are five percent this year. That's big when you consider the TV ratings in general or down. You're talking about many. If not most of the top fifty things that you've seen on TV have been NFL games. What do you attribute the gains to look at offense? Great almost Patrick Mahomes lit up this year. You saw the excitement around that Baker Mayfield a young rookie company. I think the youth movement at the quarterback position has really elevated the ratings and people are just tuning in. My kids are coming up. Eighteen nineteen twenty years old are tuning in to watch Baker Mayfield tuning in to watch those Patrick Mahomes and a lot of that fantasy as well.

"And once we'll be looking for a new deal. But foles in talking about is playoff experience responded as a level-headed veteran quarterback would it's like I've been talking about just focusing on the Moines today, the most important thing is Wednesday. So that's the thing. I learned is you know, it can you can make as big as you want it or you can make it a small, and I choose to make it smaller. So I can just hone in on what I gotta focus on today. Gotta love the Mark Jackson like kidney, candy store and NFL analyst joins me. Now, love them. Right. Talk about the quarterback quandary that the eagles and ravens have. Okay. So in Baltimore, you've got this youngster Jackson taken over for flacco, wet risks. Do you think there are for the ravens when they put up young guy like Jackson with a Super Bowl went around the bend? None. There are no risk. Because you've you look at it. If you're a fifty fifty two guys in locker room of the fifty two the three you're sitting here, you're watching Lamar Jackson play lights out in your six and one you're going to rally behind that guy. And I think that's the situation right now. We're looking at a quarterback who's carried this team changed everything not only on the opposite side of the ball. But deep until the entire mentality of this team has changed since Lamar Jackson took the hell if you're down twenty four to nothing in the second quarter and a playoff game. And you got flacco on the bench who's won a Super Bowl. You gotta let them sit there. No. I think you can utilize guy like Joe flacco up you're down. But we haven't seen. That we haven't seen that presence of that. We've seen this team play legitimate football can't City Chiefs where they got into it back and forth. They went back and love. Lamar Jackson hill does own. It took Patrick Mahomes to convert or or down to win that put ballgame. He's played against up rivers. He's played against great quarterbacks in the last six seven weeks, and he's held his own. I don't think they get down especially with that. They don't get down. I don't think he was going to. I don't think we're going to see Joe flacco the remainder of the season. I'll just put it to you that right? The same next season. No plant, not not not as a Baltimore raven. I I think the changing of the guard has come. It's Lamar Jackson. So speaking to change in the guard. And I know Philly fans are gonna wonder what's going on here. You got foles who's lead them to glory. Now back again in the playoffs. You got Wednesday young star. They got a choice to make at the end of the season. So what do you think they do with these two quarterbacks? I know I'm jumping ahead. What I listen. I think this week will vote. No, we can't Pam Bo. We're gonna find out a lot this week. Philadelphia. Eagles are traveling to the Chicago Bears. There bears defense has been a lights out all season long lit by Khalil Mack.

We saw Nick Boles take this same team at the end of the season in go on a winning went rampage and go in and win the Super Bowl. Nick Boles makes this team better offense. We didn't hear about Alcyone Jeffrey all season long until Nick foles came in Aguiar disappeared a lot. We we didn't see the weapons that they had.

"We saw what happened with Levy on bell. They managed to do just fine. It seemed at least for most of the season offensively despite the fact that they were without the third be in that three in the big been Antonio Brown on bell trio. So I think the Steelers are capable of doing it in. There is something to be said for addition by subtraction. I think if he is I'm not in that locker room, and I'm certainly not going to jump out here. And pretend like I know how bad Antonio Brown is for that locker room. But if Mike Tomlin and the rest of the organization believes that his presence is a detriment and to the mentality of that team. I don't think that there is any amount of touchdowns that can make up for that. So on the flip side, Mike Tomlin coach here. And I think there is this impression that you got the Browns situation you have the Levy on bell situation. Something's going on with that environment. What do you make of that impression? I think it's a fair impression. There's certainly something going on. And this is not happening while it does happen in lots of locker rooms, it's not happening in every lock them right now. I don't know. I think it depends on it's kind of a bit of a war shock test. When you how you feel about? Mike Tomlin because I think you can look at this and say, wow, Mike Tomlin has done an amazing job kind of making this team as competitive as it's been over the past several years one Super Bowl. I think he's one twenty six and or one twenty five and sixty six has a record one of the best in the league. He's been to two and one Super Bowl, you could say, wow, it's amazing that he's done this in a situation where you can look at it and say man, Mike Tomlin's really lost control of his team. I think it's fair probably two two draw either conclusion based on the information that we have I'm going to look at a guy who's been to Super Bowls in one one Super Bowl and say we should give him the benefit of his out. He's earned it. Okay. So you give them the benefit of the doubt. But I have to ask this everybody always talks about having the players coach. And how great that is. And obviously he's got that reputation as well. But is it possible that maybe when when in this role as a player coach that things have become a little bit too lax? I think it's certainly possible. I don't necessarily think it's true. I don't know that we have a lot of evidence to support that. I think what happened here in this in this situation is is kind of a one off. And we could look at what happened in in. Minnesota would with feeling and cousins yelling at each player's emotions run high. I'm a I'm a player I've been in locker rooms where we had to Pro Bowl players come to a fistfight before. And we were still just fine. The next day like that happens in football. I think Antonio Brown's personality may be one standard deviation away from the main as far as most players NFL. But generally those locker rooms a tough situations and being able to manage those. Locker rooms requires coaches to make some judgement. Call sometimes they pay off. Sometimes they backfire would say over the long run for Mike Tomlin a judgment calls that he's made have paid off. And I think most theaters fans would agree. Okay. We'll see if you can make the right judgment call with Antonio Brown. But of course, takes two to Tango to make this right? Dominic.

A macro to speculate on trays and things of that nature. We haven't formally received the request in that regard. So I'm not gonna speculate seems like everyone else is given what's been happening between the team and star white out Antonio Brown. Head coach Mike Tomlin attempting to stem controversy from Brown's allegedly getting into it with a teammate and subsequent practice. No-shows? They didn't being sidelined for the team season. Finale made news for what he didn't say an answering the question did Brown quit on the team. You know, you can describe it in whatever ways you want to describe it. But there was a lack of communication there. The bottom line is that we're playing significant game. He didn't do a good enough job of communicating or being available in hours leading up to that performance. And since yesterday's news conference Brown has been putting himself out there in more ways than one here. He is and this video with James Harrison promising his own tell presser that never materialized, but what did. This appearance as a hippo on the new FOX show, the mask singer singing what else Bobby Brown's my prerogative? That was obviously taped weeks if not longer ago, but the timing is interesting Dominic Foxworth writer for the undefeated and former NFL player joins us. All right. So dominate. There's what the rumor mill says about him possibly being traded in. What's fact, he cost twenty million against the cap if they trade him, so should they? Yeah. I don't think. Well, first of all, I think the cap numbers a little different. I know that that's the dead money. But I think that's assuming if they if he makes it to his salary. I make from what I understand that the cap if they trade him before his roster bonus which is in early March they can get about recoup about fifteen million of that that they don't have to pay roster bonus. They don't have to pay in salary. But I do think it's still a hit on the field for them. But if there's any team that I think is capable of withstanding hit. It's definitely the Steelers. They seem to be kind of like a wide receiver factory where every couple of years they bring out a new all pro wide receiver, and they. Have experienced in having a dealing with a major hole in Iraq..

It was on a full sheet of a whole other idea of characters in title. And there was once one little section of it that had these two characters Ren and stimpy. And she said that's what I want for the shell. And so they said, okay. So they sent more choice. Sent me pictures of the show, you know, like the characters, and I honestly, I they were kind of abstract. I didn't quite know what they word. I like what is what is this one of mosquito or? Microbes what I didn't recognize them as a cat and a dog. Right. That's fair. I don't think I ever kid. So I just sat in my listen to it and. They wanted me to audition for both parts.

That you put the thing with me is I was bursting to do these things that I was learning and you'd go out and see your friends and at work on something really cool, and I would do it. And it's like, hey, I'm I'm learning how to do Bugs Bunny, you know. And then they just stand there. And I go eight is a little, stinky, all my and they was unreal. To just see come out of your face. I feel like I'm not here. Yeah. That's confusing. Those sexually confusing. Girl. And is a final ward. But I would do stuff like that. And they'd sit there to win Gami on an EMMY. How frigging good you have to beat them press. These thick what is it with these guys? You know? So I knew that I was never going to be like them or one of them. I didn't write, you know. But then you you you're gonna eventually did you ever find your find your tribe when you do a Bugs Bunny voice to someone and they hit you back with like eight Donald Yanni, many years run into somebody that knew how to play like that. Oh, that's, but he was probably also a free when did just through working with people that you might people like that. Or did you? I was I was always like the alone. Yeah. Cold out there alone. Yeah. You did. You were in a band, though, we started to do stuff on stage. Like if I broke a string. And this is where we were talking earlier, you said you were a little thrown off by hearing, my real voice. But when I really did sound like Philip j fry when I was twenty five, and I was playing in a band, and it's like, oh, man. I broke a string. Now, what am I going to do? The probably blew up to we don't have any roads. They don't exist. You know, and it was like so being as lean complaining. But but that's like back, then I would do voices. If I broke a string just a cover for it. And then you found that like you're even better at the banter than you were performing would just stop dead and go they didn't quite know what to make of it. And it it wasn't like I was not good at one time..
"one foot" Discussed on Raised by TV
"Suba caa. No. Son, call with grace can be watching fly through the air. And I would be like I'd be like my head would be exploded. And I was looking in every little bit of it. Because once it's off I'll get to see it next week. But it'll be another episode. But you never know when they're gonna take it off. I never know if it's going to go to another season because there was no information about show business. Nothing couldn't read even TV guide. There was a TV guide. And eventually they started printing a back page. It was yellow the page and it had teletype on it. And it was called Neil hickeys Hollywood TV report. And that's as close as you could get to knowing anything about anything. They would just preview they'd say coming this fall. Three new shows one is called lost in space. One is called Star Trek. You know, like sixty five or something she that must be crazy to imagine. This new show. We're trying out called Star Trek, it might not be iconic forever. Right. Exactly. It's like. Oh. Yeah. Roddenberry's making a show gold Star Trek check, it out turns out being like, absolutely. But I go back really far and TV in the fifties was pretty desolate. I mean, they were comics my mom was very smart. She let me stay up late. My dairy smart marketing, Mike comic idol was a guy named sid Caesar. Oh, yeah. And Jonathan winters both of them were my heroes in life, and my mom. Let me stay up to watch this show called show shows. It was the sid Caesar show an imaging CoCo was his partner, and she was just as quick and funny and fast as he was and they were geniuses Carl Reiner was on. Yeah. Woody Allen road Allen road on that on it for a while. But like, Larry Gelbart, doc, Simon like all the greats came through there. Yeah. That's wild. And so if that makes sense that that would get you inspired into like watching like the iconic comedy of the time. And if there's only one of three channels to watch. Right. There's kids being inspired to do what should Caesar does all over. Yes. But I would my world was a sonic one. Because there was just so little television to watch that. I would listen to the radio constantly. Oh, yeah. And that's a whole nother world. And I mean that I imagine would be very inspiring for someone like you or you have the ability to do voices. They were all the cartoons that I you know, I grew up watching, but they had garbage equality. You know, they were like they were copies of copies of copies. There was no master that was available. So you're watching everything that is like if to look through protons pixels. Yeah. You know, deterioration the generation every time they rerecord it. There's some twenty two year old kid listening to this right now being like, what are you talking about? It's not just on your phone everything in HD quality was, but this restraint was like like the renaissance, you know, the renaissance happened because suddenly Artis. We were told that they could only use two colors that religion played a part in everything and forbade them to do this that this. So what happened? They all went nuts and found a way to sprout wings and fly through the air because of the restraints, and you got the renaissance out of it. People my age guys in the business and women that desperation gave you superpowers eventually. Yeah. It forced you to replicate to be able to replicate the coolest things that you ever saw right and radio the same ways to listen the guys in the morning, you know, and it'd be like Paul Harvey friends. Do you know what you and I need really need? Good Cup of coffee. Guys like that would draw you in. Wow. It's like the grandeur of simplicity. He would just stop. He would say, you know, liberal Georgie loved to play with his axe when he's outside, and he was in Washington, you know, and they milked there. No, you would just could you could just visualize people waiting by the radio. So I'm waiting to hear the next it. Yeah. It's gonna fireside chat. And that's the way it was a lot of people didn't have TV sets when I was a little kid to have one people would watch TV down the corner where the the the the store was a store was sold our CAT..
