They wanted to help us expand and they're going to give us a permanent lease there in South park so choose to do it. At the end of the lease Actually already offered us two locations already in there.

Company that in the past would have rushed to list shares in New York much like Alibaba didn't twenty fourteen but aunt instead turned its back on the big apple and that matters for two reasons I, it's a passive aggressive escalation of China tensions too. It's an effort by China to prove that Hong. Kong. Can remain a global financial hub in spite of a new national security law that undercuts the conditions that help turn Hong Kong into a global financial hub in the first place in short. And it's IPO are as important to geopolitics as they are to capital markets or tech markets, and all three will be paying very close attention as the listing gets closer

"Christian rapper Lecrae is getting dragged he had a conversation with the CEO of a chick fillet and also in Atlanta the pastor Louie I've still got another name wrong Giglio that's different I you say his name but you know in in the conversation the pastor was saying how he wants to change white privilege to white blessings check it out with our nation's history we miss we understand the curse that was slavery white people do and we say that was bad but we missed the blessing of slavery that it actually build up the framework for the world that white people live and they live in and so other people call this white privilege and I think may be a great thing for me is to call it white plastic that I'm living in the blessing of the curse that happened generationally that allowed me to grow up in it yes I know I can almost hear what he was trying to say he's been a sound crazy is it on hand so crazy and everybody took it and what we're really sucks is I honestly I haven't seen the crate trending like ever ever in my life that I've or has it for all the great work that he puts in everything that he stands for and talks about that this is the moment that he turns out to be trending and he's getting drag left and right and I feel so bad this is like down like you guys and and I also get the anger though I also hear seven and one thousand percent but the great did come back and say you know I'm sorry he said I'm processing a lot I think my attempt to be diplomatic and gracious I missed the opportunity to take care of the very people I came to represent I knew I was uncomfortable but I was so excited to educate I still has some gaps in my education and he went on to say you know that he was been he's been battling racism within the event if I can even say those words evangelical church that he was in a very dark place so I think that you know it's it's a matter of sitting down and understanding but it also is a learning a learning lesson for everyone and I can also understand where he was at you know saying like at that time when he felt uncomfortable that he was trying to process everything that he was hearing you know but a lot of people I was wondering if a crazy evening Cardi you don't know San R. or knew what it was like man this sounds crazy because I felt like if he called he said a guy named easy you probably still got it got got into it or even another question of you know explain because that sounds confusing you know you know I was in love with me yeah and that to me you know after I heard it it had a chance to say Hey you know doesn't because there's times when I do interviews where I listen back to somebody bring something to my attention I say damn I miss that

The coronavirus pandemic's impact on global mental health is "already extremely concerning

"This week we're talking about mental health not only may mental health awareness month but there are now some concerning statistics about what's happening during this pandemic for example a recent. Kaiser Family Foundation poll found nearly half of all Americans say the pandemic is harming their mental health. In some way and crisis lines are reporting significant increases in calls in fact a federal emergency line saw a one thousand percent increase in April compared to the same time just last year so joining me to talk about. What's happening what we can do about. It is licensed therapist Katie Morton. She not only runs a private practice in California but she also reaches a worldwide audience through her youtube channel with nearly a million subscribers and she wrote the book are you okay a guide to caring for your mental health. So here's our conversation about mental health during a pandemic. Hi Katie. Thanks so much for coming on the newsworthy. Yeah thanks for having me so first. What's your reaction to these types of statistics that we're hearing right now to be honest. I'm not surprised. Were stuck in this stress response. I mean all of us. I think would admit even if we didn't have a mental health issue prior to this. We're feeling a little bit more anxious a little bit more stressed out and worried and so it's no wonder that we're finding those rates. Go Up. This has been going on for much longer than most of US anticipated and not. Everybody knows how to cope with that. So what are a couple of the main issues first of all? This is nothing we've experienced before so I think the unknown is really really scary for people and the most common things that I'm hearing from my audience and patients alike are just the worry thoughts. I think we can all agree that we're worried about today tomorrow. A year from now and those worry thoughts. I mean if you don't know generalized anxiety disorder is diagnosed by the uncontrollable worry. Like no matter. What we do we just keep worrying and you think a lot of us would admit that we're feeling that right now and so. That's probably the most common symptom as well as My patients who tend to be more on the depressed side are struggling to have hope for the future. Because we don't know what's going to happen and I think that's the main issue when it comes to this this particular pandemic this particular issue is. We're learning new things every day so we don't always feel like we have all the information needed to figure that out to feel okay to be able to soothe ourselves and say it's going we're going to get through this a lot of us worry about not being able to. I've heard the analogy that you can push yourself during a marathon or something because you know where the end is. We don't really know the end is with this. How much of an impact does that have? I believe it's making it like twice as bad like you know when you're doing a workout new like ten more and you're like I could do ten more but if they don't say anything you might stop early you're like I just can't keep doing this. And so my worry about the lake not knowing when it's going to end not knowing the future in a very dark view. I think we'll see suicide rates. Go up which I know. Sounds TERRIBLE. But it's just a reality and something that we should be aware of. We should check in on people in our lives But also I think it leads to increased anxiety and panic attacks right. Because we don't have the wherewithal to say you know what they said in two weeks. We'll be okay can just hang on 'til then so it just this extended period of feeling unsure and uneasy can can exacerbate all the things we've been talking about and curious your take on guilt in comparison about how bad it is. I think if I'm having a bad day I I'm like well I still have my job. At least I still have my health so I feel guilty for having a bad day. What do you say about that? Yeah I've been feeling that too like hey I haven't lost anybody. How dare I even feel anything? That's akin to saying because they're starving kids in some other parts of the world that it's not okay for me to Sam full and throw out that last night or something and I think one of my favorite quotes is comparison is the thief of joy. And I know that that doesn't apply directly to this. Oh it's taking away. The joy but comparison is never helpful. Someone's always going to have it worse. That doesn't negate how you feel just because someone else is going through tough situation doesn't mean that you don't have the right to feel upset. Are there any less obvious side effects? I know I've heard people talk about. I'm just have less energy or I can't be productive. That sort of thing yeah. Concentration difficulties are huge. And that's actually one of the most overlooked symptoms of things like depression anxiety and I think a lot of us. Because we're in this heightened stress response our body is like primed for fight flight freeze but instead of being able to do anything right because the the threat is a invisible virus. We feel stressed. All Day long hyper vigilant may be you know an on edge and so of course. We're not able to do as much as we used to do. We may be can't remember what we just read and also we can be tired by like two. Pm Every day yeah. So let's talk about tips and tricks to handle some of what we're feeling right now. Can you go through a few of the main things that you're telling people right now? The one thing that we do know is that true connection with people in our lives in person is the real antidote to that stress. Response that we're experiencing so if we can safely and selectively do that. I think we'll all feel a little bit better if you're not able to leave right now and do that like selective engagement. The Zoom facetime phone calls texting. That will do. It's not ideal but it will do And then another is just having some kind of structure to your day. I doesn't mean we have to have twenty five things on our to do list. I'm talking like two or three things like I get up around this time. Let's say between like I duNno eight. Am Ten NAM. Depending on how you are your morning person or not and then I make myself breakfast. I have my coffee and then I make time during the day for some kind of movements exercise having some kind of structure to it and then I stopped work at like six. Pm let's say keeping that structure will keep us kind of going and give us some kind of beginning middle and end to our day so it's kind of important to keep that And then distract when you need to. If you find yourself worrying and inspiring into the whole my God. I don't know what about this. And what about my grandma and then my friend? You need to start doing that. Trust me. I've been there too It's completely okay to to get up to move around to organize something I mean. I think that's why people were making banana. Bread and sourdot starters. It's really just a way to distract and there is a place in time for that to And then the final is something that I've been kind of going through this week. I guess is just allowing yourself to grieve. It's okay to feel sad. It's okay to feel upset about this The more we fight it the more out of control. Those feelings can be so. I've been setting aside the sound really weird by setting aside like thirty minutes just to feel sad and then I'll make that. I'm going to get up distract Paul myself out of it. I do something else But we don't have to ignore those feelings altogether because they're they're they're real. It's palpable right. Every where so those are just a few ways to kind of get yourself on track and keep you feeling your best final takeaway for the audience or anything else you want to add. I think my last thing is just to be kind and compassionate to yourself and others were all having a hard time If someone seems a little agitated irritable know that it has nothing to do with you. It's all to do with this situation. So breathe be kind. You know I think that that will go a long way and all kind of manage. But we'll get through this and this is the one and only time where we are

Let's be honest comprised. Most of the workforce aren't really rolling up massive expansion plans and many of either laid off or furlough employees. If you're listening right now you undoubtedly fall into one of two groups of people those who have lost their job and those who are worried about it because even if you survive the last month without a hit to your finances you're likely wondering how much longer your employer can maintain things the way they are.

"Last Thursday. I sat down with Browns Defensive End myles Garrett in Los Angeles one day after he was reinstated into the NFL. The interview which aired on outside. The lines was Garrett's first media parents since he was suspended by the League for swinging a helmet at steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph Rudolph initially declined to comment but after reaffirmed his claim that the quarterback called him a racial slur. Rudolph replied on twitter calling the accusation. One thousand percent false and a bold faced lie today more from our interview with Garrett including new details on who he says he told about his allegation that fateful night then Adam schefter joins the show to discuss the steelers response. And what this means for both players going forward. I mean a crime. It's Monday February Seventeenth. This is ESPN daily presented by. Adt Back to November fourteenth. You guys were up. Twenty one zero seven just seconds left in the game even suited for the first time and how long and that gets marred by idiotic play by me and a couple other guys on both teams. And there's a brawl going down inside the ten yard line and getting in there was myles Garrett and took the helmet off of Mason Rudolph along it and that David Decastro and Marquees pouncey came in and they started really laying in so it was myles. Garrett took the helmet off of Mason Rudolph and slammed him on the top of my head dunk. Oh boy miles. We're going to get one too. That'd be suspended. Oh my goodness wow luxury what happened. I mean come off the edge by ten years less than fifteen seconds. I remember that I didn't want to be on the field but now sits out there and They were throwing that ball cells going to make a play so he started the ball. He's always wanted to throw. I'm going no the administrators on. I'm not trying to do anything illegal. I should go to take them down. He says some worry that we're going down. And he ends up on top of me and he goes to twist my helmet off. So I ended up getting leveraging topping him. I grabbed his helmet and I'll start shaking them. Push them off me and I was shaking him. His helmet comes off and is now one of his offense lineman grass and I think the Castro and he's talking to me. Tell me it's cool. Notice let it go. No Senate game. It's all good. And as he's known walking me away on my left side base incomes. Run again now. He's yelling he's already kicked me to China. Twist my helmet off and made a mistake to defend myself but Day because it's left a situation entirely. There's no need for that. No no for that at all. Wow you're you're up by twenty one to seven and video that we were watching of myles Garrett taking the helmet off brutal peniche slamming him. Which pretty bad you've just described in great detail. It sounds like something you've thought about a lot a lot of time thinking about it now. Time thing about that reaction what my response should have been. 'cause I should've have and I usually have in that situation. Just wasn't there and not just reflect the myself and allowing myself to never know being the situation but if I am to to handle it better. What did he say to you? Call me the N. Word Kami a stupid and we're I don't like I don't say the N. word whether it's not a he are to me personally just shouldn't be said and whether it's known by family friends anyone and I don't WanNa use it because I don't want to find the appropriate around me for anyone to use. So when he said it kind of sparks something but I still tried to let it go still walk away once he came back. Kinda Kinda reignited this situation and now only have you know escalate things. No Pass what it needs to be no with a little time in the game left. Now you're now you're trying to know reengaged and start a fight again and no. It's definitely not entirely his fault. Stephanie both parties. Doing something that you shouldn't have been doing so. He denied that he said what you're alleging. And then after your initial appeal leaked out and you said I wish this didn't get out at all. My was because I didn't want to try to use it as justification for my actions because there is nothing to justify like there's there's nothing I can say or do to justify what I did on that day. I'm not saying there's no to justify than I didn't do anything wrong and I know what I know what happened. I know what I heard. People say things when they're heated aren't the full of emotion. I leave it on the feel.

"I'm Rosanna the dear child. Talking all about rewriting Hollywood's image of indigenous people from the inside and five indigenous. Writers Comics are doing just us that working on a brand new Sitcom for NBC. Called Rutherford falls unreserved producers. Tenant met up with them on the paramount studio lots in La just outside the writer's room where things can get a little silly job Tassell fulltime job. My name is Janisch meeting. I'M MITOCHONDRIA LAKOTA. And I'm a staff writer rather vol's my name's bobby. Wilson I'm secede secede Awan Awan Dakota and I think a little bit of White House staff writer Donahue. My name is Tania as Chavez. I am a citizen. If the Bishop how you tribe molly member one tribe relations are I am Navajo Pie in San Carlo Patchy achieve and I am the story editor on the jets. My name is Tyler Claire. I am Mohawk and mic-mac from from going to walk in Quebec and a staff writer on the show it's pretty great. AFC or analysis Hanish land nearby Cheektowaga Additionally my name is Sierra Teller Analysis I'm member of the Navajo Nation. I'm born of edgewater people in for the Mexican people and I'm also The Cook Creator of Rutherford Falls. I created the show with Ed Helms and Mike sure who both worked on the office in my created partner in Brooklyn I nine and the good place and so we've been working on this developing this idea for about a year and a half now. The show runner is really sort of like the boss. But they're also a conduit between in the producers and the other CO creators and the studio and the network and then also the writers so there's kind of jack-of-all-trades sort of shortstop position. I'm going to say that. This is the first native show runner in America and I would say this is the first TV show that has this many stuff writers and writers that Arnie if I could be wrong but I won't back down. Toss it would be my hype woman. The most basic question to start with what is referred falls. What is it about we such a hard time explaining what the show is? But it's awesome so like definitely spy side in there. I'm not it's all about the town of other falls which is this tiny town in upstate. New York that is adjacent to a native reservation and the town is sort of turned upside down own when there's talk of moving statue that commemorates the founder of the town. This Guy Lawrence Weatherford. And the last Rutherford to live in the town is this Guy Nathan in played by Ed Helms Nathan Rutherford and he just loses his mind over it. And because you sort of can't let go. It causes all these other dust ups in the town including his friendship. unshipped with Scroll Regan. Who is native American one of the things? I think that I love about Mike. Sure shows is that he sets out to really try to say something big in a super funny super assessable way talking about the bureaucracy of government with parks and REC or talking about like. What does it mean to be a good person with a good place and I were two picture shows? People be like what the hell are you talking new out but he has a way of sort of condensing and making it funny and making accessible way that I really enjoy and so I think we're talking a lot about like what are first stories. What does the American narrative? How does that American narrative affect all of us? And I think we've found a way to sort of make funny interesting version of that so for people who can't see where we are. Could you describe have a where we are. We're in a fort on an ancient Hollywood burial ground. There's a couple of Indians in there. I think Joey Ramone Well look at his heir where paramount pictures studio. So it actually is one of the oldest Hollywood studios you on point Bobby. This is the old blue studios which is on bay. Does your Anez and Lucille Ball. It's unoccupied territory and its content. It is one thousand percent haunted. We're surrounded by a lot of videos and so you get to walk past them on your way the office and like look in and see people making TV and movies. It's pretty wild everyday that I come here. I'm like holy. I can't believe this is my life. That's what I say. Every day we'll settle into the office very quickly very very quickly. Bobby put up artwork mark. We got rugs pillows. They got native real quick. Colonial settlers. We settled settled. It's actually one of the nicest writers rooms we've I've ever worked in. They usually look like these like really Friday sad dorms. It's preach ikya plants Manson furniture and blankets. It's nice so many gods so much I was a kid and I would go to my white friends houses they all have pantries ebbs and like French necks and lunch ables caprice and I didn't have that and so this kitchen I feel like is amazing. We are the rich kids now day one we were so like. Yeah if we'd have water beat the great shirts. Gosh I'd love to chat with you about how you work together. What is a day of work? Look like are you making each other laugh Just watched the movie black cloud. It's like that daddy issues. A lot of fights. There's one wall that we we can all punch his. I'm getting a lot of straight answers from the corner here. And it's a pretty traditional writer's room we blue sky and then we just go through and sit on a couch together and talk about the things that have happened in our lives. And that's what's look great but having so many native writers as I feel like being the only native right on a show and ask you a question you have to represent then everybody and what's so great here. I don't have the answer. There's a good chance one of the other writers we'll have it other native writers and that's so it's just so nice. There's such a weight off your shoulders. I was really amazed by how collaborative has been like. I thought we were going to be like Austin delegating. Some like random small space windowless room place. But we're actually like working together on couches is all day making jokes. It's phenomenal so what was the first day working together. Like I can't answer that because I feel like I have a moment. He's he's just a moment because this is the first time that I've had native colleagues in any workplace and it's so cool to come to work especially in TV and be around other native writers. When I had my first meeting with Sierra at Homs was in the room and her and I were just like talking points like she remembered he was there and she was like? Do you have anything that you say. And he was like no. He's this is amazing. And what's amazing is like we get to cut out Indian one on one and we just get to get on on with the humor and the stories and it's super cool. That's the most exciting thing for me that I know on the first day is that it was also the first time I think we've been the majority in any space. It like influences the vibe and the culture of the room for sure and it's just it feels really familial and it also also is I think influencing the storytelling quite a bit. It's it's pretty magical. And what about putting the writing team together were you part of that Sierra. So could you. Could you tell me about how you put a writing team together for this show. Sure I mean it's really just been like I sound like a Pollyanna but like a dream come true in a sense of like. I figured there'd be like one native writer later and have to fight for it and Mike was like. Oh no there should be like half. The room should be native but to two hundred between woman a white guy should be half and half and he just has such incredible influence so the three of us at Mike and I met with a bunch of different writers from all different backgrounds. And it was so cool that you're told all the time well there there aren't out there so it's GonNa be really hard and it really wasn't and it was just a really cool idea of like who are the funny native people that I know or discovering and then we put them all together with a bunch of other funny writers from different backgrounds and friends runs that I'd worked with before. It's a really exciting time because I feel like we're all getting to do something that is like genuinely funny genuinely interesting but also very much from a native have perspective and kind of juxtaposed that with a traditional white American perspective. I think we're going to have multiple native characters. There's like two main native characters on the show who have very the different views of just everything and I think there's something interesting about their scenes where native people are talking to people about whatever and not necessarily about housing native but sometimes and I think the exciting about getting to to write those

From Shy Girl to Confidence Coach

"Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself and about your story and how you went from being being a quote shy person to confidence coach. Yeah for sure And you know I'll take like three full days to tell you the whole story but so I am currently confidence and empowerment coach. So I work with women who really struggle with the shyness and insecurity and we work together to to help build that self confidence that level of self love and that spiritual lightning because I really believe that that is an integral part of building your self confidence. This is kind of learning to know yourself in that facet. So that's what I do. I'm also a wife and Mama. I've got a two year old daughter named avery. And she is just a firecracker absolute light of my life and so so much what. I'm learning and teaching my clients. I'm also trying to instill in her everyday. So she grows up to be a confident woman who loves herself so it's just a little bit about me on top of that I also podcast. I am may artsy kind of design freak. I've got an se shop where I create great journaling tools and workbooks and things along those lines from a creative outlet so it's a little bit of like Jane of all trades but that's that's an overview of kind of who I am and what I'm doing now I'm but in terms of my own journey I grip a really shy kid. I say say painfully shy because I just felt so uncomfortable in my own skin and I mean I would be afraid to order food at a restaurant restaurant or ask somebody what time it was because I was so terrified of getting some sort of a negative reaction from people and that that transpired very much into junior high and high school where it's a tough time for most girls that age and I just really struggled with knowing knowing my own worth and feeling like I was of any worth or value to my friendships and that kind of transpired into adult relationships and also me being able to speak up or not speak up. I guess it would say in the workplace so a really battled in struggled many different levels of insecurity especially around like authority figures. So that's something we could even dive into but there came a point in my in my journey I had just been broken up within cheated on by boyfriend of three years and kind of forced my hand to really take a look at who I wanted to be wary. Wanted my life to go and it was Truthfully one of the best things to ever ever happened happened Mu despite it being such shitty time but it was It was the kickstart of a fitness journey. A spiritual spiritual journey and a personal development journey. That has just gone into the most beautiful whirlwind of of this just. I don't even explain Lina. This explosion of growth over the last eight years now and so over time. I've learned a lot about myself a lot about who I WANNA be. And I've gained a significant amount of tools and practice in terms of of stepping into this person. I am today today and it's just I feel like it's just beginning awesome. Yeah I discovered you through my friend Kelly and she told me about one of your webinars that I attended with with her And it was just so cool because I really resonate with your story like being a shy person. I think I've kind of overcome that in the last couple of years a little bit. It definitely not as shy as I used to be but I really liked the workshop that you did online and could you tell us a little bit more about that in the other ways you work with with clients. Yeah absolutely I believe the one that you you had done with me was Basically how to speak with confidence. So how show up in front of a room or in front of a crowd or in a presentation and really feel prepared and confident in yourself or even stepping on Oppressing live going live on social media on videos youtube even doing things like podcasters so common nowadays for so many people especially young young entrepreneurs and I've come across a tons of people who are so terrified to do things like that and I've I've one thousand percent Ben there and so I have in my past job as a personal trainer working in the fitness industry. I'm somewhat still affiliated with it but I would have to often present in front of my peers and my bosses and even the CEO of May company every once in a while. And I felt like like every time I had to do that. I was going to Shit my pants. I was so nervous like sick to my stomach over it but I learned a lot of tools over time. I and I did a lot of things to help. Prepare myself for those so that I would show up. I would give it a hundred and ten percent and honestly crush it every single time. So that's another thing that I help people with How how Excuse me how to have hard conversations how to have hard conversations uncertain as a because. That's another thing that a lot of people struggle with is really how to convey how they're are feeling when the stakes are high. Had A have you can call it a fierce conversation a tough conversation. Crucial conversations conversation. I've learned how to approach really touchy subjects with people and be able to communicate what you're feeling why you're feeling it what you hope to get out of the solution and not feel like you're going to either Krummel in the middle of that conversation or avoid it altogether because you're worried about what the other person is thinking and I think everybody can identify with having that problem at some point in their life because it's scary it's scary to to have these tough conversations when the stakes are higher when they're some maybe a lot of risks so I mean that's come from having to have tough conversations in my own relationships ships from working with clients in the fitness industry talking to them about the the real the realism of them reaching certain goals and not taking taking the appropriate actions. And that's also come from me being in higher level management in having to either terminate people or tell somebody what they need need to do in order to continue to work with us on the team so again a lot of it is coming from personal practice and of course you know tools that I've picked APP from my own mentors and other resources like you know coaching courses in Buxton podcast and all that stuff. Wow and so what do you find that. It's tools tools that help people gain that confidence or do you feel like it's just putting small things into practice over time I think it's actually more mindset Sir than anything but I think having tools in your back pocket is a comfort. It's a comforting thing it helps you feel like okay. That's that's kind of what I needed in order to feel prepared in Infield confident and I think that those are kind of like training wheels if that makes any sense like doing the things that talk about. Let's say in preparation for a speaking engagement. there's a lot of little steps that you can do but over the time I think if you can just sit down for two minutes before you go onstage and breath intention and set your intention for how you want it to go you will be just as successful in. You can feel justice confidence so I think it's more mindset and your ability to trust yourself but using those tools tools for a period of time as they as they become more natural I think that helps you cultivate that trust in yourself.

Why 'The Last of Us - Part 2' Delay Doesn't Worry Us

"We are of course meeting to talk about the fact that the last of us are too has been delayed it got a February twenty twenty release date just a month ago I think literally a month days we're recording I was at the preview event for the game and then they announced the release date on September Twenty Six for a February twenty twenty release now if confirmed this is actually going to be released on May twenty ninth twenty twenty Neil Druckman wrote a letter that I just I'm going to read briefly on the playstation blog he wrote I mentioned the release date change I know it was just about a month ago when we had our big blow out for the game leading media play over two hours of it along with debut in our new story trailer and revealing the release date the positive response we saw from our community was overwhelming you can feel the energy among the team members after working on something for so many years it's invigorating to get a glimpse of validation for all the hard work however it was during the last few weeks as we were closing out sections of the game that we realized we simply didn't have enough time to bring the entire game up to a level of Polish we would call naughty dog already at this point we face we were faced with two options compromise parts of the game or get more time with the ladder and this new release date allows us to finish everything to our level of satisfaction while also adducing stress on the team while we're relieved that we won't have to compromise on our vision were disappointed that we weren't able to avoid this exact situation we wish we could have foreseen the amount of Polish we needed but the size and scope of the game got the better of us we hate disappointing our fans and for that we're sorry we hope you understand that this additional time insurance that the US partout lives up to our collective ambition as well as our at the highest levels of quality we know the extra few months will add to what may already be an excruciating wait for all of us we are grateful for your patience and continue support come next May he will finally rejoin Elian the last of us are to Neil so at that statement I wanted to of course up twelve U. and ask how you feel about this delay did WANNA point out one thing for me that's really great about the statement is during the fact that this is both to polish the game to make sure lives up to quality but also to reduce stress on the team right yeah that's I think that like sore healthy that sentence was included and that where seeing that from this caliber of a studio are where people are actually going to turn around and pay attention it's super important to avoid crunch with you know where you can and and I just think it's that was the best sentence and that whole statement I also think that this is a pretty like part of the coast delay I'm not worried about all I think it sounds like it's going to be for the game it's going to be best for the team it's healthy delay there's a difference between the healthy delay and then a series of unhealthy delays a lot of people ooh this is a bit worrying and it's like no no no this is completely fine this is not a duke nukem forever scenario right this is a small delay in order to polish the game rather than a series of studio mishaps and disastrous comical area areas which was the story of this could be Duke nukem forever scenario if this continues to happen and for the next decade yeah hope they're adding a mechanic where you can pick up your own feces yeah that was I think one of the defining things that have been missing naughty dog games no like like you said I think the the conversation it's happened around crunch over the last few years has been a lot more significant than I think most people give it credit for I think the average Gamer sort of looked at that and like well this doesn't affect me everybody has a hard job and it's like you're right you do and that should be addressed at your place of work as well if there was an industries dedicated to covering what you do for a living hopefully those issues would come up quicker but the fact that this conversations come up so often and it came up with red dead it came up with I mean even since the start of this gene ration- That game rise was one of the first things I remember seeing an xbox with the studio tweeted out we've we've ordered over four hundred thousand pizzas for everybody I eat late when they're working on our game and everyone was like that's not cute that's bad like you should scope your project better so it doesn't happen like that So if this means that those the people working in this game can go home and see their families and husbands and wives and kids and pets great like this means that this game is a catastrophic I sir I doubt it so I think this is definitely a positive thing the interesting part of this is that this means that Sony doesn't have a significant Q. One game period the First Party game that we know about so they not first party they do I we were talking about this off air and then I remember it because I just looked up a calendar they do have a much smaller release in the audience reach Marvel's Iron Vr oh which was really coming out within a week of the last part to yes obviously having a big flashy marvel game for your Vr headset that will hopefully sell more during black Friday is not a bad thing to have but I in terms of the traditional release late that we'd expect collages in the First Party right yeah we are missing that especially for something that is you know would essentially be a core ps four game yeah something that is for part of Yes white proxy of a of a four hundred three hundred dollars hat yeah I enjoy it it's still a big if assigning next year yeah I mean those two games and then ghosts and then I five and that's all we know about so far who knows what else has come it's really exciting you played the last speech to you played a couple of hours of it was there did you walk away from it being like this this game is really missing quality or Polish Elliott couldn't pick up any of the dogs poops really bummed about that Tina wouldn't let me publish that exposed to clean the yard that's terrible I do you know that that was from the dogs you're right it's a pretty tough world out there I know I mean obviously that I don't want to know what a clicker poop looks like the the obviously that was meant to be a slice of the game that they polished up for us to place the but even with that in regard it felt pretty well polished like if I was playing that on release of a game I really wouldn't have batted I ran really well all the nation looked pretty fluid a there was nothing really that gave me the sense of Oh this is pretty far back in development but of course that is a small slice of the game and maybe the speaks to me spoke to Neil Druckman at that time and he was like what you've seen as such a small bit of the game maybe that's really true yeah I think it's also with mentioning that in our of all major studios naughty dog in my mind is kind of known for that extra level of Polish like I have never played a naughty dog game that that Janki or a bit like broken in one section it's always no matter what you think of the story of the pacing will the other things you might want to criticize it's always like they always at the utmost level of Polish and so I think for Neil in the came it's probably polishing stuff that we wouldn't even think of this as you know for them it's it's that sort of one thousand percent thing so yeah I highly doubt that this is a big kind of overhaul but they need to do it's going to be just it's just about cleaning it up a little around the edges I wonder if this is I mean obviously leading stresses huge it's great that they're moving away from crunch for that and giving it the Polish it needs but also kind of getting out of the way of anything else that's happening in that era we we've got a pretty loaded front half of next year so yeah I've brought up the list right now of what we know and just to quickly go through stuff that playstation would have January we'll have Z. CACA rot February will include February's actually a little bit quieter let's see what else now arches watchdogs march is the so watchdogs got delayed this morning as well Oh did ask the interesting thing all the major twenty twenty February now quieter than we would have expected to still has ironman VR but gods and monsters which was releasing within a few days of the last of us is also delayed. Okay Yeah Ubisoft this morning also delayed Gaza monsters watchdogs Legion and was quarantined. Do we know anything that's coming out like early June Taylor I'm telling the mayor so may the only thing we know the latest the state for a major AAA release is marvel's vendors which will be two weeks before the last of us right now April basically the second quarter of the year is cyberpunk in April than Marvel's avengers in May and now the last part I mean this seems smart because you do get that you get the stuff that was sort of the holiday okay window that gets pushed and more and more seeing that kind of bleed over like we're talking about right now and then there's always the sort of the early early early fall late summer stuff but the first the first last of us was that was June was busy three yeah came out her kids are out of school shouldn't be playing the game because it's dark but you know it's a good time for kind of also just if you look at the calendar and you're like when is there going to be a lot of competition it's like you own the conversation doing it that we yeah well this is I think the naughty dogs one of the few studio that doesn't necessarily have to worry about the release because they're games sell tens of millions of units they're far and away from the best selling games on playstation and the PS four has a massive install base and we'll only have a big one after Christmas so I think that like this is their probably less concerned about playing keep away or having the dodge major releases the closest thing that I could see eating their lunches cyberpunk and they'll now be a month in like a week away from there they are I mean touch different games it's not like it's not like this any kind of danger of cannibalizing

Eyewear Giants to Merge, Grow Even More Mammoth

"<music> ah from wondering i'm david brown and this is business awards daily on this thursday august state is no secret there when you buy eyeglasses. You often wind up feeling like you've been raked over the coals. Prices have been climbing for decades and even vision insurance doesn't help much eagle-eyed listeners see what i did. There may remember seeing exposes about the monopoly in the eye wear industry. Well today the heart of that monopolies accompany. You may never have heard of much less able to pronounce that me give it a try. S allure luxottica yes there we go esa. Laurel exotica is the world's largest eyewear company owner of pearle the vision lenscrafters sunglass hut and rayban sunglasses among many others it also owns. I met one of the country's biggest vision insurers. The company was created created in two thousand seventeen by the fifty three billion dollar merger of esa lor a french company specializing in lenses with lozada an italian specialist in frames. The the merged company now owns so many pieces of the eyewear business from insurance to designer frame manufacturers to optical chains that it can charge markups of as much his one thousand percent according to the l._a. Times c._n._b._c. reports that can cost as little as four dollars to make frames. It's not unusual for a pair era prescription glasses to cost as much as five hundred dollars in large part because of the power. This company has in the industry well esa. Laurel exotica is about to get even bigger it soon to pay about eight billion dollars to acquire a netherlands based company called grand vision grand vision owns seven thousand stores under many names in forty countries west coast listeners. Maybe familiar with its four is retail chain most of grand visions stores though are in europe a market esera exotica wants to beef up the european union. We'll have to see its way clearly to approving the big merger. Regulators concerned -cerned about competition took a long time to approve s laurel exotic as initial tie up not to be dominated by the mammoth company. Another huge merger is in the works. One london won't make buying glasses or contact lenses any more affordable alas v._s.

But my guess is that nobody actually knew it is WWE. Vince could come up with the idea yesterday and made a graphic. So nobody seemed to know what it was last night. Now, there have been many instances, not every instance, but there have been many instances, where word gets out that a new belt or belts are being made for w we hear about, like they're making new tag team, title, Zoar gonna make this bell, or sometimes even a picture comes out, there's been nothing for whatever this new belt is here tonight, so my SP. Speculation. I could very well be wrong. My speculation is it's going to be the hardcore title because Mick Foley is announcing it and they may very well just using the old bashed up. Winged eagle belt, and that'll be the title that is used or the belt that is used for this new title, hence no new belt being created. So that is my speculation.

"Seeing Wellesley one thousand percent more on both frames and lenses, and the when you put that in the context of other consumer products right out of the gate. That's outrageous. But you put that into the context of health care, which I think we can all agreed glasses prescription glasses fall into for many of us, and I were glasses just like you. Do we couldn't do our jobs without corrective lenses, so the idea that we're looking at the percent markups. Well, think about it in the context of epi pen or other things that have gotten attention. You gotta ask yourself. Why isn't anybody doing anything about this? So why is it that according to consumer reports the average pair of glasses that people by now? Is four hundred fourteen dollars for something that the frames themselves and manufacturer cost as little as a little over a dollar. Exactly. Based on this one a collie came up to me and said, yeah, I just got new glasses may cost eight hundred bucks. And then I sat back and realize. Yeah. And every time I get glasses. Came to cost about as much. I compared notes with others. Seems to be common. Even though there are places out there that offer cheaper alternatives, and I'll be writing about that in an upcoming column. The reality is it many of us are just completely flummoxed by the idea that our our costs this much. Here's the bottom line is basically just one company that dominates the entire optical landscape companies called Essa Lor Luxottica companies merged last fall. And as it turns out. Owns just about every designer out there. Mani Brooks brothers, Oakley Oliver people's way. Bam everything you can think of the either own it or have a license it. So when you go into lettuce Crafter, they start showing you different brands. They're showing you basically the same companies goods over and over and over under different names. And then what are you know, s allure? The other part of that equation. They're the world's largest. Contact lenses. So you put all that together. And you've got a company that is really quarterbacking the entire marketplace. And then it gets even sneak because you go to lenscrafters, we'll guess what? Also after you buy flames there and use your insurance, I met the number two optical insurance into our country. We'll guess what they own I met as well. So they are in effect paying themselves for you, pay inflated prices at the retail store that they also own. How did this ever happen? Well, because antitrust is something that's not really enforced anymore. Yeah. I think also when it comes to healthcare. And let's remind ourselves. This is the healthcare story we have overseers in this country. That are keen to say. The market do its magic. And the reality is I do there's not sufficient competition in the marketplace to do that magic or consumers on sufficiently. Well informed to be able to. Navigate the marketplace. At in this case, I don't think most people understand that you've got only one company that is catching you at every step of the way from insurance to retail to flames two lenses, and that's why we're paying these egregious markups. And my thinking is frames. Well, whatever the market will bear little when it comes to sneakers or or other things that you're going to be wearing fine. So we can get away with lenses. That's a different thing. Many of us couldn't do our jobs without corrective lenses. So we need a lot more transparency. Pardon the pun when it comes to lens pricing creation because let's remember this is a product that is almost entirely made out of plastic. These days over it's not some artisan with a file carefully. Putting that Lindsey other new it's all automated machines, so the margins on this. Oh, the charts. And I'm going to spill some beans here that I'm sure is part of the second half of your story. But the reality is that there are now some very aggressive sellers that people just need to know about that cell glasses. It's so little money. You're just gonna assume they can't possibly be any good. Well, every reader more readers after seeing the latest call and said ou any obstacles any optical, and I'll be I'll be talking to them. Their business models. Interesting because they're going to sell you the frames and the wind is online for a fraction of what you pay at the brick and mortar place the I frames online, and it's a little bit. You know, you're taking your chances. But okay, I have never bought lenses online until today. As a matter of fact, I wanted to see what the experience was like, so I just completed a prior to our chatting right now. And I'll let you know what happens with that. And I think increasingly in the same way that many of us could never imagined buying shoes. Online, for example, or pants because you'd think wow, I'm I can't try it on. And then we all come around. Once we discovered the guess what? Amazon makes it relatively easy. Frames and lenses will gradually become more like that with people, and that's gonna put a lot of pressure on the marketplace to be more competitive, and hopefully, we'll bring more players into the marketplace one state recognized that they've got away to compete effectively against the big dog out there. So David everywhere, I go in the country. And I'm doing an appearance people come up to me and say look at my glasses glasses. They were fourteen dollars or whatever. There are now all these online discounters, and I'm just dying to know you said your last pair of glasses for you. Did the experiment today? How much were they? Easily went up to seven hundred eight hundred bucks. My goodness. Designer frames that are owned by obviously. And and all the rest it adds a very very quickly. Once you start putting on the anti-glare coding the prison. It always complicated. I never would have trying that out except working face to face with an optometrist. Now, I think I'm gonna take that plunge. So how much was yours? Any order. You said you looked at it today. I went to a different company. Interesting business all of it right here in LA and one of the few companies on legs any that will allow you to sending your old frames..

Oh, you're so kind, but the truth is, and when I look at someone who is successful, the first thing, I think of the first thing, I think of is what are they doing that? I'm not or how did they get to that place? And you actually have some wonderful examples of this. And you've you have some solutions for us to create our own success. I sure do. And what's interesting, Frankie is when writing this book what's up and billionaires through that. Most people don't I was stunned at what the courts are to achieving a seven figure. It's so easy. I it sounds like an infomercial. But it's really easy for infants. You're now only three percent of people actually write down their goals. Three percent now. So that by itself tells you why people achieve the status because you, and I know when you write something you think something you're a third of the way. They're yeah. Absolutely. Right. It I can circulate there. I can tell you another one. We don't think big enough. You are right. Thank they. And I call that stretch goals. Now, I'm not saying you need to say, I'm going to build a skyscraper. However, what you could say is when you're looking to buy a condo a home or upgrade asking yourself. What can I afford? How much am I gonna save and stretch your goals about what you can do bypassing a lunch three times a week? So the key is it's really little things that equate to the big picture in life, and this actually applies to achieving a financially free status. That's what this is about. So.

I said I don't laugh I want you to be successful. He said every morning, I look in the mirror, and I tell myself what I have accomplished and what I intend to accomplish that day. And I said have you ever video yourself? So that you can go back and give yourself credit for what you have done. He said tomorrow morning is the first time some people do it like that. It's not right. He gets out. He has to hear himself. What I do is. I write down my goals once a year we guarding what I'm going to accomplish that year. And I don't even look at them again. I know I'm working on that's number to a lot of people create vision. A vision port is something that they see all the time. And what happened the most important thing?

"Boy. I couldn't tell I know what I read it this morning, but I can't tell you the guy who's in power now as Maduro, correct? And by the way, the Venezuelan military just said that they are siding with Maduro.

Yeah. It's it's got the potential to get quite quite ugly. If this gets gets volunteer. Yeah.

I'll go with Donald Trump officially recognized him and then Brazil Argentina Canada. And I believe the UK all followed suit. So remains to be seen exactly where this is going to go. But this could turn into a little bit of a. A little bit of a tinderbox not because Venezuela's economy in particular is anything to write home about. In fact, it's pretty awful right now. But just in terms of the opposing forces that are kind of viewing this as a proxy in some sense. Yeah. One of those fortunate unfortunate situations is incredibly oil rich country.
