NBA Players, Owners Meet To Discuss Plan Of Action
"Get back on track WHOA Jeez here. Thankfully to tell us what might happen here. Obviously, it's a fluid situation Adrian. I. Guess. The first thing we want to ask you is, what are we expecting today like what is going to happen today meeting Liz I have no idea what's going to happen today guys yesterday was. A remarkable day and one that I don't think any of us who cover the NBA. WHO Who've covered sports and and in my generation Bo forget but to set the table for today. The players having eleven am meeting here in the bubble. And the owners have a board of governors call at the same time. I'm pulled eleven am obviously that'll be done virtually and so simultaneously, those two groups we'll be meeting and the players. I think after a night, it was an emotional day. It was an emotional meeting they had. With most of the players in the bubble coaches were there last night there came a point where? The players asked the coaches to leave so they could hash it out amongst themselves. The teams I was told broke up into groups. and then they're going to continue that conversation this morning but I mean what's at stake is simply This season and are the players as a group going to decide to move forward. Continue the playoffs by all indications that the three games that are scheduled today. Not. Going to be played, the League hadn't officially. announced it but every indication we got in the last night regardless of what they decide moving forward that those three games later in the day. Wouldn't be played, but the players have more to work through and talk through. And consider a lot of different. Consider a lot of different scenarios. And and ultimately consequences of what it would mean to shut this bubble down. You're there in the bubble woes and you could get and I just WanNa know like what is what's the feeling is like does feel like NAM empty and just spooky and? What's that feeling like? I. Think the last several days keyshawn. and. You could feel a building you could watch on I think you guys could watch. On television and and read what people are saying and see. The interviews with George Hill and Fred Van Vliet. and. The emotion that players were carrying. Since the shooting of Jacob Blake earlier. In the week. And how that resonated not just all over the country. But here. and. On top of the emotion and Guys have been here a long time and it wears on you and guys miss families guys feel. At times like their captive in this place it I get it. It's a resort like I. Don't mean to. It is a resort and I get it and. All of us are lucky to be able to work. In, this country right now and a lot of people can't but there is a cumulative effect about being away this long. And you add on top of that. the horrific nature of that shooting. Another in a series of them in years of decades. Of them a century of them and so. data impacted this place at impacted those inside. And It was a domino effect yesterday of once. The bucks made the decision to knock him out of the locker room and not play. And then how it impacted the other teams and lead to that meeting last night that was pretty rot times. The to La teams the LA clippers. The Lakers have two of the hour say most powerful voices in professional sports in Genie Boston. Steve, bomber what type of influence can they have on the rest of the NBA owners to get something done in favor of the players? It's a good question I think the question is. And I think what the players Were spending last night doing. And and previously, it's been an ongoing conversation here. But is there something and and I and I know in the meeting last I a lot of players. Disgusted I know CJ mccollum was who's an executive on the players committee or on the on the Executive Committee of the Players Association. mccomb the Blazers Jaylen Brown the Celtics war leaders. in the Union and top players in league talked about having a plan of action and the bucks in the locker. Room. In those hours after that they after they decided not to play. Working with their own ownership in Milwaukee to get on the phone the Attorney General of the Lieutenant Governor in Wisconsin to talk about ways to move forward. To try to impact. that. Particular case. In in their state in Kenosha. And so you saw players already beginning to do that yesterday now. How does that continue today? What what players are asking themselves I know what organizations are asking players when they got back to the rooms. Last my back to the hotels. What is the endgame if we don't play? One is that what is it that we wanNA accomplish outside of the bubble outside of this environment outside of the platform that you have right now to play. play NBA Games and speak to the world through. Through this. What does that look like and so I think that's all going to be part of the conversation today with the players and with the owners if they kinda reconnect after those two meetings.

"California utility company found to be responsible for a number of deadly wildfires has emerged from bankruptcy, which could mean people of our claims against it could get settlements for months. State officials had said that P Genie had to be out of bankruptcy by June 30th if they wanted to participate in a state funded liability program for future wildfires. July 1st Pacific Gas and Electric said it was official they were out of bankruptcy, and they put five billion into that state fund.

"We are going to discuss the situation in Libya so a few weeks ago, we had written about the one thousand Russian mercenaries that had arrived in country there, and the presence. Presence of unmarked MiG fighters, so I wanted to have Tony. Maybe you can set the stage for us. It's a very complicated battlespace that is emerging there with alliances that are very fluid, and what is really become a showcase or a testbed for a war of the future. So why don't you set up the security situation for us? And then we'll dig in and and talk about how the aircraft there are being used. Vive semis up. Pretty Fatty. That Jen. This harks back to the Arab spring, and the and the impact of that event across the Middle East and North Africa and also the fall of Colonel Gadhafi, and since then we've had this. On and off civil war, but now sort of developed into essentially two major sides who got the Libyan national? Army controlled by lethal halftime who made significant gains from his base in Benghazi sweeping across the country, and then we have the government of National Accord, which is a U N backed government which which? Controls Tripoli for a long time. Half ta basic swept across, took control of most of the oilfields on a much control of Libya, but then in recent months we've seen a resurgence of the genie's power, mainly, because it's backed by Turkish took a lot of effort into this campaign, and they've been fighting back, and we've seen sort of the GNA taking control of fields and towns across the area so particularly in the western half of the country the Libyan National Army Khalifa's army. has the backing of countries like the United. I M, Ritz Egypt and of course strain Russia, so it was sort of seeing this strange war. Complicated woman different sides. Some countries are undecided about which side to take. Which side is going to win. It's caught up in cobweb of mercenary groups and. Now introducing high levels of technology we're seeing. UAV's being used these Russian aircraft advance, Ground Base, defense systems, and also mercenary troops, being used in different ways and being bought in from different parts of of the Middle East to come and fight there. It's just it's become a little bit like Syria, but not quite the haphazard situation that has developed the. Brandon. Where is the US in this equation? A good question. It's The the best answer right now is that it's complicated. ostensibly the US does support the GNA because that is the internationally recognized UN backed. Government but It's important to remember that general huff. Tar is a creature of the United States in a sense He did spend eighteen years here in northern Virginia It said that he was working with the federal government for most of that time, if not all of that time and improving their understanding of events in North Africa during the latter years of the Gadhafi regime. So you know there have been a formal discussions between president. President, trump and half tar. They've actually spoken to one another there has there has been some limited at least diplomatic cooperation, but the US has stopped short of endorsing the as legitimate governments over the DNA so one more way Tony kind of had alluded to it a to it already one more way in which this is at all levels diplomatic, military, strategic, a very very fluid, dynamic, strange, complicated situation. That's unfolding there in Libya. Let's talk a little bit about the MiGs. We started to see satellite imagery of Russian aircraft landing on an airbase Dan. Can you bring us up to speed and give some detail about how they arrived in what happened to them after they came in? Yeah, so this is a the great. The great mystery of the conflict right now so in mid May satellite imagery showed that a MiG twenty nine had appeared at L. Giuffra. Airbase in central Libya and anyone that has access to the Internet can quickly find out. That Libya doesn't have MiG twenty nine fulcrum. So, where did this come from remarkably? Remarkably there had been some which essentially called rent a rumor intelligence, and the previous day's out MiG twenty nine, transiting from Russia to Syria, and then they just of stopped, and then a couple of days later. Oh, there it is! There's the MiG twenty nine in Libya and so people have been trying to piece I back, you know. Where did these come from? Who supplied them? And eventually on Africans in the US confirmed that they were rushing that they came from Russia, they flew through Iran and Syria and onwards syllabi. They went it. Was You know they say fourteen MiG twenty nine s you twenty fours. The mixture that is up for debate. There's been at least six twenty nine seen in Syria at the same time there was allegedly transiting. Their markings are painted over so these. Are you know I'm I'm going to be the first one to steal fray. Sorry guys the. Little Green jets. I got there first. So these. Are you know? Plausible deniability, whose are they really you know the most likely operated by Russians some people say that they're Belarusian. But they're almost certainly not. Unless secret training program kicks a long time to train foale. Gen fighter. These are not pilots in there. Almost certainly not Arab pilots in general. They were meant to tip the balance, but we haven't really seen them in action much so far. So what have you seen with them? Since and I understand, there are also some issue twenty fours in the region. Yeah so Brennan and I were talking about this. There's only been one confirmed action. They were used they hit a GNA convoy. Just recently that was transiting. Run the Oil Crescent, but mostly they seem to be kind of flying over top of their their bases, and they're just being held in reserve, almost a most satellite imagery of a Alqadi. That has the twenty fours in shelters. They haven't left. They arrived. They went into the shelters and everytime. Imagery passes over there, so they're not seeing not gone flying mission they just it was like a morale boost, and then they've stopped because I'm assuming losing one of the so soon into the conflict would probably be a PR move than when they arrived.

"Have talked to a number of times about the role social media plays especially in moments like this we talked about on Tuesday the hash tag blackout Tuesday we're discussing you know elevate black voices to kind of show your support some people called it virtue signaling that's a phrase that's been used often but sometimes people are sharing information that doesn't turn out to be true awards from a botany can be really hard especially if you're a newbie to social media or maybe and I don't want to just love older generations into it which is kind of new to any sort of platform not quite understanding of if something looks suspicious or sometimes it looks completely legitimate and people fall for things like that but there was one the hashtag do you see a black out that was a really interesting to watch unfold on Twitter and join me to talk about it right now is Craig Timberg is a technology reporter at The Washington Post he reported on this a great thanks so much for your time my pleasure okay so let's start with this hashtag do you see a black out from what I read in your article it just started with a couple of tweets but then just blew up what exactly happened so an account that certainly looks fake they're only three followers when I followed the directions for followers and that have been newly created all it ever done was try to create new hash tags and then to so it created this new DC blackout hash tag around two AM Monday and then a couple of other very fishy looking accounts amplified it on there themselves and the result was it became over the course of a few hours this amazing online gathering spot for just huge amounts of misinformation about what happened in Washington DC and the central claim was that the police have basically cut communications throughout the city to so they could kind of crackdown on the protesters and of course someone who lives in DC Iraq a mile from the capital I knew that that just wasn't true and so what how does something like this happened because I I feel like something catches on and then of the person that is legitimate right has a huge social media following well then re tweeted and then how do you actually put the genie back in the bottle one something like this happens yeah I mean I don't know exactly help this one exploded as well because this is that is as large as it did it but in general you know once something is out there once it has been created people see it and then they want to comment on that so it is T. he blacked out hashtag you got like a half million tweet in just about eight or nine hours from people who are concerned about what happened in Washington DC so there's this interactive quality between the initial misinformation and then people posting other you know videos and images and such including one that work from Washington and then there were people who were talking back at them they don't know I'm here in Washington too quickly it's because clearly not that that isn't happening and coke that sort of you know it comes like a lot a wildfire and to get your personal putting the genie back in the bottle I mean no I mean I you we did were ultimately corrective he'll cut our store was kind of corrective and know people the word spread that this wasn't what what they claim happened literally true but of course you know you can't find everyone who saw that hashtag images like misinformation just explode then you can't unexploded what just happened
Senna: The Early Years
"Dan Pass Gas. We're talking about the early years of Ayrton Senna. You know him as the legendary driver famous for winning multiple Formula One championships in nineteen, eighty, eight, nineteen, Ninety and nineteen ninety one he won an incredible forty one gram freeze on seventeen different tracks over the course of nine seasons. You probably also know how the story ends. At the age of thirty four while racing at the nineteen ninety four, San Marino, Grand Prix Senna crash on lap, set on leaving the track and a speed over a hundred eighty miles per hour, slammed into a concrete wall, killing him on impact. The. Final Jenny home two with L.. Tragic death cut a storied career short and much like Kurt Cobain, Heath Ledger or to park. It froze centers, accomplishments, and magnetic personality in amber. Deprived of the slow decline to any great talent at the top of their profession will eventually fall. Victim to these names are instead forever frozen their lawyers, and so they remained. Forever Young. Senator is now a legend. But where do legends begin with an origin story of course? So what senators version of being bitten by a radioactive spider, finding a weird lamp, genie or floating down the Nile in a basket made of Reeds? Well like Spiderman Aladdin or Moses Senna his monogamous, but before Senate was sent off, his last name wasn't even Senna at all. His parents worry that he was uncoordinated and even had him test report. He was born into wealth, but although wealth can definitely give you access to the world of bracing, it can't make fast and Santa wasn't just fast. He was the fastest. So what was the moment Senna truly became Senate to answer that we need to start on March twenty first nineteen sixty the day. When in Sao Paulo Brazil. Ericsson senator silver was born. Welcome to pass gas. That was a long intro. Great Man I'm. I got a little choked up there for a second. I mean this guy is so important and just such. Like I, don't know he's just a legend, and he's just like so important to so many people, and I'm really excited that we're going to die, have really deep into his life, but I mean just. A man just. I got a little teary eyed. When you're talking about the forever, young stuff is yeah I sure. Senna is a like I said an intro. He's a legend. Almost like a mythic figure at this point. Just such a hallowed name so revered in in in motor sports and the car world in general. Just like Oh yeah, you hear senators like he was I mean he was the greatest, but like it's just like an instant assumption of just like. Perfection basically right. Yeah, he's like Michael Jordan. Yeah, no thought given to, and we're going to see why that is because. There's a lot of good reason for that I. Think the moment where it hit where I was like Oh, damn was when? You when I I didn't realize he was thirty four when he died and I'm just about to turn thirty four, and so I'm like. I gotTA. Do. Joe You're the air and of automotive podcasting damage. Out Year Man. Is talking about how I am scared about dying. But what I've noticed is a lot of a lot of pieces that talk about center. Don't really dive into his early life. which is what we're going to do today? And I'm really excited about that. Hopefully will give people some insight into where this dude came from, and I, think yeah without further ado. Let's get into the life. The early life of one Ayrton Senna. Are you guys ready? I'm ready. Ready sale ever be. Ready, legit. You WanNa give. Fired up I think my new my new thing is. Fire Dub! Different words fired up. I could see that on a shirt for sure, but D. U. P. Oh, yeah, fire! Up I get a man. It's great. It's solid. C. memes are better when you explained. A Ayrton Senna Da. Silva was born in nineteen sixty in Sao. Paulo Brazil at the pro Ma tre. I'm going to by the butcher every Brazilian. Names Zillion were. Portuguese Brazilian. I'm going to butcher at all today. Just letting you know. Pro Monterey! Maternity Hospital of Santana a hospital I assumed was named after the legendary guitarist areas. Warn! Ayrton's father Milton Dasilva was a landowner and factory owner, and among other businesses Milton owned an auto parts company, and his knowledge and connections within the industry would become a key entry point for Airton into the world of racing
PS5 Games 'Soon' - What Is Sony's Next-Gen Lineup
"We do have a lot to talk about actually this week even though again soon he will not give us specifics about the. Ps Five chances are the specifics will go live twenty minutes after we record but we did get a decent amount of information thankfully after the. Gosta of Sushi mistake play. Thanks to an interview. We were able to do here. Jan and we got a little bit of a teaser about the. Ps Five and games coming soon. We'll get to that in a second but if you are wondering why we're not going super in depth on the go sushi. Maceda play itself. It's because we recorded a second so last week so if you happen to catch that episode you're not subscribe to any of our feeds. Go check that out. Go subscribe go here all thoughts about that and we will have some of your thoughts later on in this episode. But I I did WANNA talk about. That nebulous announcement. That news is coming so we got word from Sony. The parent company Wide Sony. Ceo Saying that quote we will soon be announcing a strong lineup of PS five games. And that's pretty much it We don't have a date or any sort of window or how that will come about but we know that they are now saying. Sony will be announcing a slate of PS Games soon. And so that could mean first Party Games. It could mean exclusives multiplatform games. We don't really now but I don't know how you guys feel but being stuck like it's nice to hear that the top of the company is acknowledging the five but it still in this weird nebulous soon way right. Yeah I think I think our best bet is to jam together a whole bunch of third party and First Party announcements at the same time. I don't really see them coming out with like this gigantic lineup of First Party. Stuff announcements like that feels Well first of all you have to of their biggest studios are still shipping product in the next few months. Then you have you know what Santa Monica's it's GonNa Take Them I. I honestly don't think we're going to hear anything about a new four game for a while or whatever. They're working on And then you have like media molecule with dreams and stuff like that like there's a bunch of stuff that just happened and even you know a Sony. Bend like I feel like they're gonNA. I don't think that they're ready for any announcement. I mean we really just got. It wasn't too long ago we got days gone. It's still getting updated Like I have a feeling we're GONNA get a lot of sort of like. Here's the special edition five additions. Type stuff like there'll be a lot of like. Ps Four Games on steroids. There'll be a lot of like here's confirmed third party stuff. There'll be a lot of games as a service stuff that we expect launch already Someone else since we know someone else since we don't think the best idea for them is just jam as much information as possible. But I'm not really expecting a ton of big first party stuff right now. I think the The announcement that they plan on announcing things is sort of sort of infuriating. I I feel like we see this. A lot from CEO's Bob. I was always doing that. Whereas like yeah we got the damage show in the works or whatever and people are like what like blurt something out in earnings call. And it's like there's no. There's no podium Ryan show that I'm aware of I was thinking of Kassian Indoor but anyway I you know his stuff out. And it's like you're the head of the company if you want to announce some stuff maybe you know. Kick marketing the ASS and be like how do we? How do we raise brand awareness? And how do we get people excited about working on 'cause to sort of being like older? Han? It'll be ready in a minute as like a non announcement yet again. Yeah I would. I would take anything at this point. I think any any kind of teaser. I would take some Sicily logo reveals you know. Maybe we got. We got our first look at the playstation five in the form of a still image of an obvious logo and A A three two and a half pictures of controller. Like maybe maybe video of literally anything like we got that that sizzle like playstation studios or Sony Studios or whatever and it's like just just make something did make some mixim. Buzz make some higher. They just get us excited about literally just like any little thing. What you said about First Party Studios I think is is kind of a given I I mean I imagine they're probably GonNa Buddy up with with a few third parties and do some exclusive reveals and like you always say yeah just like for the love of God. Just give us anything just any anything. The first party be That both brought up is really interesting because I was looking back at it the last time. We got like really big proper far-reaching sort of announcements about first party games was twenty seventeen We got games like concrete. Genie was announced that era. Ghosts Sushi was announced that year. And then of course On the loss legacy and less partout were both announced twenty sixteen. Same We Got Spiderman and God of war at the same time. I believe Sony really put everything out there between two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen and so it has been years since most of their First Party. Stable safer of course. Mlb and stuff like that that we've seen anything from them new it really been sort of. Alec. The final three ish years of the cycle have been what I party has been working toward announced this weird quiet mystery of do they go next. I think that's good to a point like I've I've praise them for this. Because I think if you if you do a little info drop and be like. Hey it's a it's almost ready if you know announce a game three years in advance and then pop up every six months to be like check it out. Here's another trailer people just lose interest whereas if you if you don't have anything to say people don't have anything to look forward to. I totally agree with both of you. Guys I feel like in a normal era Like in a random ASI three year It's it's kind of a Faux Pas to just show a a logo for something that doesn't really exist yet or won't for a while but I think that at the dawn of the new console when you WanNa get people invested in this ecosystem for the next few years. That's sort of okay. It's still cheating and it's still kind of dirty but it is. I do think that it's yeah. You're going okay like if you if you get this thing in November. You're buying a new assistant will eventually deliver X Y Z Z and like to clarify record said earlier. We we we named a few studios their own like I didn't even scratch on INSOMNIAC or anything like that had nothing. I'm expecting them to deliver a launch game But I think that if they say hey were working on something that could happen in the next year year and a half or twenty twenty one. Then you know all right. I'm buying this thing in November and I'm GONNA kick around place in my favorite games on some games of his service. Third Party stuff But in twenty twenty one. I'm getting Spiderman than whatever

Sdg has taken major steps to help prevent future fires our biggest risk that we have is the potential for power lines to ignite a wildfire so a lot of the steps that we're taking is to prevent that ignition. Brian Estino is the utilities director of fire. Science and climate adaptation. We have right now. Over one hundred ninety weather stations monitoring micro weather conditions on every circuit that we serve in the back country that enables the utility to shut off power when dangerous conditions arise. And it's making it systems more fire resistant. For example by replacing would polls with steel poles insulating power lines or moving lines underground. D'agostino says that as the climate warms the risk of wildfires is growing and Utilities.
NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim Targeting More Players To Join Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd On New G League Pathway
"So the G. league has a plan they have a path for young players who may not want to go to college basketball route will play overseas but give them closer to the NBA by staying home if anybody would know anything about the path to the NBA is the G. league president Abdur Rahim with the number three pick in the nineteen ninety six NBA draft to start his career a place to bring him here with us on Freddie and Fitzsimmons the review said and I quote yeah I think there's options out there to add more and they don't have to be high school guys they can be young international guys if not with dealing green and Isaiah Todd we think it's totally fine for more the high school guys more young guys to be a part of the program this year because the opportunity is there by having those kind of conversations when you have these kind of suits scenarios hoping you're G. league what is the ultimate plan with this right now the G. league well it is one one thank you guys for having it looking forward to talking with you one zero the idea of being angry about it back in two thousand and eighteen Aug professional battleground close was really to give you know junk elite high school players an option beyond just the traditional route route it they were looking for something else so you know you've seen over the past number of years gosh you don't take a take a gap year so to speak or guys go play international four year and you know what we would say that the genie can go don't do that we have that opportunity for you you know beyond that and you know it others see this as the pathway towards the NBA this is an opportunity absolutely international players as well you know we were greeted with an MBA ecosystem we have a growing number of international academies around the world so there's almost a natural world pipeline for gold that are are ready to start your professional career it had three of the top twenty high school prospects go from burning college hoops and straight to your league and you you that that is drawing the ire of guys like John Calipari and others when you hear them saying this is the wrong thing these two young men to do and the G. league is recruiting or whatever your response to some of the negativity coming from some of the Big Boy college basketball programs what hello alert level of response collecting again our our our intention is clear not someone that's very good you know back in you know back in two thousand eighteen you know the G. league was asked to do is you know when you look on the heels of the rice commission and others that the young man that we're looking for alternative routes young man that you know would say I'm just going to college for one year a mobile one a dog that's pre determined to give them an alternate route if that is you know rigidly conservative not necessarily to upset a great coaching flag like coca we know they're going to be upset because you're taking recruits away from them but this is a business just like college basketball is a business why does that message why to see that they can do that in a resonates with people but what you're doing is not a bad idea but a lot of people don't like it hello a three in one or what we've done is try to educate people about what we do also is the doctor is not for every young man it was a very select few little or at eighteen nineteen years old on the track to the NBA addict as one so it doesn't you know it's not a competition because they're all contracts will will will be year of god does well there's great art your call desk well so is is not there in addition incidents set up to start helping young people prepare themselves for professional life so like skills buckets recruiters we also scholarship well good deal good through and beyond eighty eight of the young man's confessional basketball career go full scholarship so obviously you know you know Dolezal who critique it let's go let's have a dialogue or understand a little better about what the G. leaguers is
The Great Alaska Quake of 1964
"This book. This is chance is a book about a seismic event like our current pandemic except that it was an actual seismic event. Tell us about the earthquake that hit Alaska on March twenty seventh nineteen sixty four. It was Good Friday evening and this was the largest quake that's ever been recorded in. North America is still the second largest one in the world I think even more disturbingly and almost with more experience it lasted for four and a half minutes so is incredibly destructive quake but it was also there. Was this kind of psychic disorientation. That came along with it. Especially in the city of Anchorage which was really Alaska's biggest city by far at that time of just seeing this community that people were still very much in the process of building and inventing just kind of being turned literally upside down in some spots. Was the epicenter in Anchorage proper? No the was. It was close anchorage. It was just east of Anchorage under the sea and so there were a lot of communities that were affected around Alaska. I chose to focus the book on Anchorage because you know like I said it was really a place that was just beginning to get on. Its feet that sort of represented the promise of what Alaska could be felt great pride and itself but also real insecurity. Quake came in a very precarious moment for the community. When it was really just starting to feel like it had something to offer the rest of America and to be struck like this in such a seemingly random and very cruel way I think really affected the self image of the community. I mean Alaska is still kind of a mystery to many of US lower continental Americans. What was it like at the time? The Greater Anchorage area was. It was the city of one hundred thousand people in nineteen sixty four which is almost half of the state's population and really the only community that outside probably would have deigned to even call a city and it had a fourteen storey hotel but that was by far the biggest building. It had kind of an a new upscale neighborhood of kind of modernist homes it had JC PENNEY BUILDING. Which was a really really big deal that some big national American retailer would come build an Alaska and so again it was just really kind of finding its way you know straining to make itself a real place when this earthquake happened and it was it was feeling very insecure about its future because it didn't quite know that after this boom of statehood that it had found any way to sustain itself. It was still this feeling that this place that they were building this arm of society. They decided to build way up. In the corner of the world might be an experiment that just might not work out and then the ground literally shakes underneath them getting at those very fragile new foundations. I mean you. You chose in your book to focus really on the impact that the quake had on the people of Alaska. Why did you decide to approach the story? In that way. The way that I came into the story was through the story of this radio broadcaster. Genie chance who is sort of a part time radio reporter and working mother in Anchorage and who by a quirk of luck but also her own persistence? Wind up being this voice on the air and the three days after the quake that was really able to help the city co here in in a very disorienting dislocating moment bypassing information over the air passing personal messages from people looking for their family members. And once you find a like that. Who's really this node for? People coming together after an event like this. You start to see how all these individual stories of the earthquake. All of these people who are tossed around separately were really kind of joined in a shared experience. You use the Thornton Wilder. Play our town as a kind of framework. Can you explain how you did not why you made that decision? A big threat of the story. Is this Community Theater Group in Anchorage she was doing? Our town was interrupted by the quake that weekend. Think I'd probably read the play in in high school and and you know not proud to admit it but just you know didn't really take it seriously. I just started. Had this impression of it as this hokey simplistic ed piece of Americana. And when I started reading the play again I realized that in some ways it's it's themes are the themes of the story of earthquake to this idea that you know we don't recognize the preciousness or the fragility of our daily lives until we're thrown outside of it till we get some other perspective on it and the other weird thing that happened was is that you know there's this character in the play the stage manager who is standing on stage with the characters and telling you basically how they all die. The future and I realized that because I was spending so much time. Trying to recount the story of these three days but I was doing it from more than half a century later. I had that same kind of omniscience about these characters and it was very painful to watch people in the course of these three days struggling with these issues of life and death knowing that you know in one case month later this fellow would die in a plane crash or this guy was going to have a stroke and you know he was expecting to retire but he but he'd be dead six weeks later more and more. The book became kind of mimicking the structure and the way that our town is narrated which I think took it to some kind of unconventional places. But it really did seem like the way that this story should be told and you the author then become the stage manager. Yeah in a way. It's not you know we don't walk around and daily life knowing the future right but in a weird way this project put me in that position and the stage manager was really the only other person that I'd seen have that same experience. So yeah you know for the most part the book is this sort of intimate retailing about people in the in the real time of those three days after the quake but I do come in in the middle of the book as as a character. Who's just in a in a basement with all of genie? Chances Forty some odd boxes of her life just digging through trying to piece together that that map of her life.
Changing our formulation of AI to avoid runaway risks: Interview with Prof. Stuart Russell
"Hey everybody so instead of having myself and Ben. Your usual hosts and here with special guest professor Stuart Russell of Berkeley Who's written a really fascinating book about Ai in the future of AI? And we're GONNA talk about it Professor Russell. Thank you for joining me. It's a pleasure. You're listening to linear digressions so Professor Brussel I know your name might be familiar to a lot of folks who are listening to this podcast. But for those who don't know your work as much or they may be recognized the name but aren't quite sure how to place it. You might giving a brief introduction. Sure so I've been a Berkeley Longer than I can't remember about thirty four years and I've been doing a I actually since I was in high school. I wrote a chess program. background nine hundred. Seventy five In high school so I've been doing a along time You might know my name if you've taken. Ai Costs you possibly used a book by Russell Ovik So Peter Novick and I wrote that starting in Nineteen ninety-two. We just sent the fourth edition off to the printer last week and So my research has covered Pretty much every area of artificial intelligence reasoning learning problem solving game playing planning robotics language. Vision these days I'm concerned about the following simple question which we had actually in the First Edition Textbook What if we succeed? There's a new book that you have out now human compatible artificial intelligence in the problem of control as you mentioned this. It sounds like this is something. You've at least been aware of for a long time. WanNa ask what motivated you to write this book now? So the book Sort of has two parts. One is the part that says okay. This is how we currently think they I And this is why it's extremely wrong And if we assume the current standard model they I As I systems. Get better and better We face the prospect of losing control over them. And losing control to machines altogether Second part of the book says okay. Here's how to fix it Here's a way of doing I on a completely different kind of general theoretical foundation and conceptual framework And in this new framework it seems that At least that failure mode of losing control Two machines Seems to go away. The why now is because Sometime around twenty thirteen. Two Thousand Fourteen I figured out what the second half of the book should be namely is a way of dealing with the problem I didn't just want to write a book saying okay. We're all dude right. Alan Turing actually. Nine hundred fifty one said World Dude. So there's not I wouldn't be a new point so without asking you to cannibalize your book sales too much here. You know in in a snapshot what what is the Fundamental Way. That we've gotten it wrong for a long time and where. Where is the ray of hope that you found in that second half the book so this down model of AI? involves building machinery that optimizes a fixed known objective So if you remember if you've read the first few chapters of the book the textbook We talk about for example problem solving systems that Find a sequence of actions that's guaranteed to achieve a goal with minimum cost. So there you have to specify the goal you have to specify the cost function in Moctezuma processes you have to specify the reward function in machine learning algorithms. You have to specify the function In control theory you have to specify a cost function so in fact it's not just A. It's a good fraction of twentieth century. Technology is based on this model and the model is wrong because me do not know how to objectives correctly particularly when you have systems at start to operate in the real world is easy on the chessboard to say okay. You're supposed to win the game But in the real world you might say okay. I'd like you to restore carbon dioxide levels to Pre industrial concentration so that we can get the climate back and balance. That sounds great. What a wonderful objective. What could go wrong wrong? Well you'd get rid of all the people because they're the ones who are producing the carbon dioxide and then you might say okay well. Let's not do that. Let's Restore Carbon Dioxide and not kill anybody And then of course. The system has Subtle and complex social media campaign. That convinces everyone to have fewer and fewer children Until there are no people left and then carbon dioxide is restored. And that's much easier than trying to do all the politics of convincing people to stop consuming and producing and all that kind of stuff so So actually we've known this for a long time where we have the story of King Midas you know. He gave his is objective specification. Everything he touches asa to gold and of course it was the wrong objective died because his food and drink and his family to MD gold And the genie. You get three. Your third wish always please undo the first two issues because I messed everything up. So we know this And yet we assist with a model with the more effective the better the I the worse the outcome is going to be the human beings And if that isn't a bad engineering model I don't know what is right so I think we should abandon that. We have doing things In brief solution is to say that The machines objective is still to satisfy human preferences about the future. But the machine knows that it doesn't know what those preferences are so as explicitly uncertain Just to give you a simple analogy When you go to restaurant the restaurant doesn't know what you want to eat. They know that they don't know they. You what would you like to eat? What MENU CHOICES? And if you pick something off the menu That isn't their life. Subjected will cost to to give you that thing you know if they're out of that item they're not gonNa you know traipse all over the city trying to find more of it. They'll say well. Sorry so you know. We're out of the duck tonight or you know the chickens not so great but maybe I could recommend the polk medallions instead whatever. It might be so. This is perfectly normal and understandable human beings that we don't know what Other humans want and we asked them and or they tell us and we we have an interactive process and we can do the same thing with machines. The machine knows that it doesn't know what you want but it has to somehow act in a way that is beneficial to us so it's naturally motivated so it's trying to solve that problem. The solution to that problem is to do things like US questions off Commission before before you kill everyone the restore carbon dioxide levels you ask you know. I understand about the carbon dioxide is it okay if I kill everyone and then you can say no. That's not why we added more sure that you're not right. Yeah so that's the basic oil and We can formulate this. Mathematically if you're interested you problem in Game Theory And the solutions to those games have the property that the better the I the better the outcome the human beings

Tennis adapting to the new normal: French Open 'unilateral' September Switch; 'Flushing-Garros' slams back-to-back?; Laver Cup & ATP/WTA responses analysed; 'Excusez-moi?' Players find out on social media; Tips for fans to cope with no tennis
"Everyone and welcome to the passing Shaw. The tennis poke caused by fans four fans with your host Jolan Kim. Today on the show. We're going to be bringing you up to speed on all the latest developments of the corona virus hit tennis season including the French controversial date change the ATP and WBZ's movement to a collective approach decision making and how players are keeping on their training routines in home. Kim I find this all very surreal. It could have been Indian Wells. Men's Fund will stay. We could have been previewing the AP we could have been. Who knows. Maybe looking forward to Andy Murray in back onto a tennis court but unfortunately sadly all that is on hold seemingly indefinitely a you you in high spirits. Nassir to Joe. I mean I've just it just keeps getting from bad worse doesn't There is just as old ask for control. We company do anything we have to sort of hate for the best and I mean there are things we can do. We can follow advice and stay inside of course but yeah. I would give anything right now just to have. Tennis is a poker it like whoever it is I will. I will accept the crappiest final in Tennessee straight. Means we have lives for again right. I find it quite funny. Actually because even though we no life tennis to kind of talk over there still seems to be actually more tennis news to actually To actually catch up because you know we still had a lot of information. Come at us from the tennis world. some some more surprising than others. And obviously we'll get onto that. Let's just give our listeners on ourselves. Actually a pair of the of the lay of the landscape at the moment the Toys R. Off Indefinitely Think. Officially at the moment they've been suspended to the seventh of June which is basically ruled out. Oh Clay Court tennis. So we've had all the tournaments in Madrid Rome Strasbourg Rats Munich astro Geneva Leon who whites from the calendar ranking points have been frozen as well so yeah we've got no. I got life headed to come to full with T. But when this was kind of announced I think the big the big talker boy it just the state the announcement was the that the ATP at W. Ta said now is the time to act unilaterally. Kim But in unison. Yeah so I mean they overeat out what they said. And I'll see if our listeners can notice what's missing so auden all decisions related to the impact of the creative. Irs Require Consultation and review with the stakeholders in the game view that is shared by ATP WPA the ANC tennis Australia and the USDA. So Joe. What's missing from US announcement. I think that I think maybe the French tennis federation a missing. I I have no idea why that is the case. They could have been because they went compete. Ray who can just reschedule tournament at the top of a heart without telling anyone our consulting anyone involved in which is going to be a might have something to do with it. I think I've eaten. What bold move. I mean understand that they obviously won't let on to happen at some point and is obviously wasn't going to really happen you know saying it's the it's the next. Grand Slam in the calendar but the decision they took was just so so rash and they've moved to the most awkward position arguably in the calendar. You know just all for the USA. But I think there's about six days in between the end of the US Open. Stop the French Open. This is all hypothetical oversee. None of this may happen and from what I've read from some circles. It's unlikely that we'll probably have any tennis the rest of the year. I don't know I mean. I'm hoping that's not the case. Obviously but all of the kind of ramifications. Ooh Who's GonNa play what what's going to happen like might be null and void because they might white everything a. Let's let's say hypothetically that it does. Let's say the French will go ahead in September? I think the dates they have said at the moment it will take place is September twentieth to the Fourth of October. First of all clay-court Teddy's at that time. That's not going to be fun is it? Yeah it's going to be very cold. I mean even wrote on Garza's on end of May beginning of genie's they can have some terrible weather and to be fed they do have the reef but also there wouldn't be any legal tournaments in in-involved say people would be coming in like fresh off the hard courts Without any practice unless they choose to focus just on the clay and took themselves off to some challenger events or futures the because I think those things they could probably arrange you know in advance kind of place at the time to kind of set them out for like practice. I think they're easier to kind of just put on a shorter natives. But it's just yeah. I mean what you do for example if you're if you're a rapper. He's defending the US. Open defending the French shape in this year. Does he just play both and hope he can defend both? Does he pick one over the other. It's just the strangest decision and we've never seen this happened before but it's is just I mean. Would that be the most remarkable achievement if someone one base of as black tobacco? We've talked about someone winning the French Open and Wimbledon boxy. There's still a gap of several weeks between those two but and that's obviously not being done an awful lot so this would be some fate if it was a chief. Yeah I mean certainly. I think it's still by the the PA. The calendar is obese. Like a back to back grand slams. We've got the sunshine double. It did well by. Abby is you've got the I coined it on twitter at the the flushing guerrillas days It's certainly that that would be a challenge for I mean for a lot of players especially for someone like Nidal. He is the defending champion in both of them. Both events would be taken enormous toll on the body. And you know we've seen you know the big three that approach to the season to take kind of a stripped back approach pick and choose events and it does it does bring up the question of you know if that does go ahead and you have back to back Grand Slams. Is it possible to debate for which you have to watch? You have to be really refocused and just say I'm going to do one or the other and you think that potentially from the Dow I would just focus on on the French Open as it would pay me to say given defended the US Open champion. Ba Yeah it feels like just focus on on one. I mean he would be the history again at the friendship going. Thirteen to add. It would be great if he could win at different times of the year when the conditions that may be different because that would just I guess ultimately proved that Hey I am totally trae anytime of the year. I will be there at the top so you'd have to think he would go for the French over the US. But I mean another thing. Is that depending on. When or if the season comes back like players will have had a long spell of time. You know in competition say they might be much fresher healthier and injury free so it might not matter too much in terms of the toll on their bodies as if this is happening at the end of animals is not that we would see this kind of contrast normally it might be the impact might be lessened somewhat because of that. But I mean who say. We haven't mentioned that it will say clashes with the Labor cop which is technically an exhibition right. It's not like a proper event but basically all the top names you know have signed up and committed to playing and all the tickets have been sold. Yeah sold out. It's being held in Boston. Which is I guess. A logical place to for them to get off the Apron said exhibition senior team world. Lovely what will I mean tires on surely going to pick that over the friendship? And but it's

"p. genies" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Genie is going back to the drawing board after their bankruptcy plan was rejected by governor Gavin Newsom KQED Julie chain has more in a letter Friday new some wrote that P. genies plan fails to improve safety going forward and is demanding that the utility make further changes one of them is reducing its debt and that's drawing applause from P. Jeannie critics like state senator bill Dodd concerns that having company coming out of bankruptcy to your house perhaps too much data to do the things it needs to do to make the utility stronger another condition would require that if P. Jeannie finds itself in trouble again the company would give up its assets to the state or third party rather than filing for bankruptcy bankruptcy expert and UC Hastings professor jerit Alisa says this proposed change came as a surprise what you're asking the shareholders accuse you need to do there to give up the protections that they would have in a bankruptcy proceeding and preach and that's that if things go wrong then PGD would effectively Lucifer company in changes like that are good news for some like San Jose mayor Sam Accardo who along with a hundred and fifty local officials have been calling on turning P. Jeannie into a customer owned utility that of course would require substantial buyout and we believe the governor's letter does provide an opening for further discussions to help us get down that path teaching you must we work its plan to meet their bankruptcy court deadline this coming Friday I'm Julie Chang KQ reading news it's a sad day for raiders fans in the bay area as the team is set to play what will likely be they're fine no game today at the Oakland Coliseum the team takes on the Jacksonville Jack wires at one PM and after that will be moving on to their new home in Las Vegas we'll have more on the raiders last game in the bay.
"p. genies" Discussed on KCBS All News
"To twenty as we've been reporting on KCBS governor Newsome has rejected P. genies restructuring plan and it's nearly thirteen and a half billion dollars settlement for fire victims the governor said the deal did not do enough to ensure that P. Ginny would operate safely in the future and for more on this we're joined now live on the KCBS ring central news line by cinema county supervisor is surely saying supervisor thank you for joining us this afternoon thank you absolutely so do you agree with the governor's decision I will I I hope it goes far enough I I think that we really want to make our fighters survivors for and that's really important to but corporate accountability and governance is also she and I don't think we have enough security yet in terms of that they have are going to be investing sufficient money into their infrastructure to keep a secure shutting down the power over a over a hundred and eighty thousand people work I guess there was three hundred thousand the first time and we got hit the hardest the number tell you that's not the answer the answer is that we need a utilities that is truly non profit and that will put the profits it makes back into upgrading the bread and the infrastructure putting poles underground so I I appreciate the governor's response he didn't actually objectively the settlement component he is the object didn't go to the governance and the safety component which is the right thing to do what he is he's previously said the P. Ginny problems are a result of decades of of mismanagement out he won't sign off on any of the proposed settlement till they get their act together but yeah my question is if it took decades to get here how realistic is it to think that a solution could be found and it may be just a matter of months well is not an option at the end he says he's right we cannot wait decades we've got to fires we are back you in two years we evacuated half of our county we can't wait decades alright I think it's realistic if you don't keep putting the profits back into the pockets of the board and the shareholders so what would you like to see P. Jeannie do I'd like to see them become a nonprofit I'd like to see the governor of force them the CPUC which is basically has the oversight to to become a true non profit profit is a fire down a nonprofit business for ten years you can make the difference is is that those profits don't fall back into those board members pocket they go into improvement whatever that mission is of the organization as you know or should have been invested in these fifty year old red and and these low and and just not keeping up with the very infrastructure so is it reasonable to say twenty years no that's not reasonable that's not an option not an option so the governor needs to be talked about that before we let you go do you have do you feel that a compromise can be reached one will satisfy both sides then well I don't I don't think that compromise happening on the governance structure they remain a for profit I don't think they have motivation to put the put the profits back into the infrastructure I I really think there needs to be a radical transformation of how this company is run it is it is basically providing a public utility it has been a monopoly for years and it's broken it's broken and it needs accountability well we appreciate your time with us this afternoon supervisor that is cinema county supervisor is surely Zane and we will have more on reaction to this coming up later in the hour here on KCBS.

"I'm going to sit out my senior year in high school, then I'm gonna sit out my junior year in high school. I mean, you know, once I've proven I can play I'm never gonna play again until I get my money. And then when I prove enough in my rookie contract, and I gotta sit out the last couple of years of my rookie contract. So I don't risk my next contract. I mean, it's a slippery slope to the point where we could get to where nobody. Ever plays up to answer your question. I do think that's where we're headed that sort of where we are with world football. Right. And they had one hundred year head start on American sports in terms of finding the best way. And. Yeah, do you think we'll get to the point where an eight year old is going to sign a club with the Atlanta Hawks, but might be a part of a developmental school. If a high school senior takes a year off, right? You takes his senior year of high school often doesn't play the next year. That's two years old. I am Williams. Earning proven to everyone that he's the best player in this draft. I agree with that. But what I'm saying is the problem is to me is the systems. I n Williamson should have been able to come out and go to the NBA last year a system that is joining San, but if but if that is the case, and they can come out of high school, then when do we get to where guys are going to sit out a good part of their senior year of high school. I mean, you know, it's once I've proven then I'm not gonna play anymore. I just I hope we don't hit. There because I don't think it's good for the sport. I'm not going to criticize the kid if he decides to do that. I certainly understand why I just hope as a fan of the sport. We don't get there guys as I thought the Michelle Roberts over all star weekend. She thinks it's coming in the next few years, really. We asked huger that same ain't gonna just painted. We asked to state up. We said when when do you think what the age limit? Are we going to change it to what for up to me? I'm a right to work person. If someone has the ability, and is is desiring to work. Why should we ever stop them? Having said that she said the wind seemed to be blowing that we're going to have a change within the next year or two. So that's great because it should be. I mean, just in terms of it seems to me basic fairness in the fact that anyone else at eighteen is is eligible to go get a job. I I don't understand. Why why those guys can't? But is that going to lead to guys? Well, I was the number one kid in my high school class after the summer before my senior year, I've got nothing to gain my senior year in high school. I'm gonna sit that out. We'll stand what you draft that guy. If a guy took off his senior high school didn't play a year in college. He's two years off. Would you take that guy if I mean, yes, he's the best guy? If you think he's the best guy. I mean, that's why I'm saying I understand it from the. From the player standpoint. I mean now he didn't go number one. But nobody had ever seen Thon maker play basketball. And he got himself into the top ten Dante Exum didn't play a lot of basketball. I mean it works. I understand it. I just man if we get to that point. I don't think it'll be good for the game. But I don't know what the answer is. Because I do understand it from the from the players point of view. It's amazing because we still haven't seen thumb maker play basketball. And that is a fairly true. Part of what I saw him a lot of threes against my team to draw Andrey dreamt away from the Basque. So I I have seen him play. A little part of a made last night. Such a bummer was that it was a bad game. And I thought do could sorta survive I understand sign Williamson's an incredible player, but they have Cam reddish. They have RJ Barrett. I don't know if this is a system in that happening thirty six seconds into a game..

"Are you familiar with these diaper genies? I don't know. Yeah. They didn't have genie's back then. But essentially, it's a trash can that sort of locks in the smell of the waste that way. Your home doesn't smell like it. But there seemed to be very clear instructions that you shouldn't wait more than two days to to throw the waste out upset Chris Cody waits a week and a half. Oh. League. Chris come on the whole point of the diaper genie is to wait you fill it up. And then when it's filled empty it. I'm not saying it's gotta be filled up in less than a week. Right. That's what I mean. I don't know where Mike just said a week and a half. I don't know where he got this two day rule. The rule is when it's filled Yelm, it the whole the whole reason it was invented is. Because it keeps the smell right wrapped. But you can feel free to eat at anytime. You don't have to wait till you empty your trash Wentz half-full. No, not wasting. I do that smell. If there's human feces in. Original guy. I I think everyone's tonal change a little bit. Once they have to actually, you know, ROY has a kid. Oh, I haven't been throwing Chris. Typer Jeanie Jeanie four people telling you that your approach is Ross. My take was poop is too heavy. That's what I said. Because when I empty out this thing it's way to have. That's your fault. It's not the poop. It's a week and a half two weeks of Kalisz. It's got I look, I'm not a diaper genie guy. I think that came after my parenting, but. Man. It does seem like a week and a half would be a little long. It's less than a week. It's when it fills up. Okay. You shouldn't wait all the way. Especially if some of the poop at the bottom of the of the wastebasket is, you know, several days old cau- hoops too heavy. It's the same in Gundy Thursday, and it's a perfect day for STAN to join Dan today because Dan is glowing day. It is a big day for an assault on shame at tourism. I we know what's going to happen today. And he's got his brother in arms. Same in gun gonna you guys are going to go to town on the NC double A Zion. Williamson shouldn't play another second for Duke basketball. Is that the take that we're going to hear today? You know, what I mean that's been Scottie Pippen's take for for a long time. He was the first one I heard come out with that. Listen, I understand the cinnamon I do in from a from a purely business standpoint. I would understand it. If if Zion Williamson shut it down. I just personally hope we don't get to that point in college sports. I mean people say, well, why should he play about because you like basketball and you want to compete? I mean, does there need to be another reason to that? But I understand the other side of it. And I certainly wouldn't be one criticizing Zion Williamson if he decided to sit out I don't think he will. And I hope he doesn't stand. That's interesting because to me Zion has a winning. Lottery ticket and if you actually had that but couldn't cash it until June. I think you do everything you could to protect that lottery ticket. Right. So I I don't know. I'm wondering because I think coach K should tell him Zay on your days, Duke or done. All right. You got bigger things on the horizon. What would you do as a coach you would want him to selfishly play? Right. Absolutely. Right. And that's why look one of the things that. I've always thought is coaches should never be part of those medical decisions. I don't I don't care what level and I never was part of them. This is certainly gotta be zions choice whenever they decide the severity of the injury. And like I said, I would not be critical of him. If he decided to sit out I would understand it. I just hope it doesn't come to that. I mean, you know, I it's look it's part of the problem with the system they should be able to go right from high school and play. But then are we going to get to the point in high school while I'm the number one guy in my class?.

Well, it's not because I I gotta get his local heat. And bill. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's going to be kind of a Justice when question, but not really Gordon trying we're going to sit gore and drag on the bench for the rest of the year because we've got our point guard. I no, no, no, how would you approach this Gordon drag its thing and understanding that now you have an asset and Justice Winslow who's taking a step playing that position. How do you manage this situation if your exposure? Well, you put your best players on the floor. So I would put gore and drug each back out there. I haven't been my starting lineup. I might have Winslow in there also, but he's not going to be playing the same role. I mean, he's not and that's going to be an adjustment. Because I do think the role fit him. He was doing a good job there. But Gordon drug which is better. And my guess is the heat still wanna make push for the playoffs and to do that you've got to put your best out there and Gordon drug which is their best coach when you were in Ames that a lot of people stop Fred Hoiberg to shake his hand. And did he seem annoyed at all by having to do that? Listen, I think everyone in that arena stopped. Fred Hoiberg like, we were laughing about it. But it was pretty much true. He was going to join us at the time out after the twelve minute, Mark. And he had to start walking overdue us pre-game because everybody stopped him. I mean, they're probably I don't think he could walk by anyone in. No, he wasn't the least bit annoyed. I mean, he was very gracious. I think he's very appreciative of everything that that town has done for him in that university in. That humility comes across in the way, he deals with the people there, and they they absolutely love him. The mayor Monica might be, you know, just a nickname. But I have no doubts. I don't know the political scene there. But I have no doubts if he actually ran it would be a blow out he'd win easily. Just like me at summer league. Just like, maybe you guys it. You go.

Let's let's if you win Olympic medals, you shouldn't have to pay taxes, if you're wounded in combat, you shouldn't have teachers save the whales.

There has been so much pressure on him to stay until close to the end of that game. Because there was no reason for him to be there as long as he was.

Are we already at the level were that's a disappointment God's with how hyped up his you've been saying he's like LeBron.

I I'd never thought I'd see the day where someone's height would surpass LeBron James, but I agree with Mike. I think that's so if he turns into Blake Griffin that's a disappointment. That would be a disappointment. Yeah. Amac's contract guy who's Blake Griffin just made an all star game. That's a disappointment. Like if he turns into, but if if he's the most hype guys since LeBron James, and he is. He turns into Blake Griffin. That's fine. Blake's a great player.

They've had to go there and put out a state like major damage control right now high five each other. Worst day the history of Nike know their finger gun in each other. This is awesome. This was a great day. You realize like talking about Nike after that about how they failed the top prospect may have injured, you know, that they're going to have to some point get into like a bidding war with Adidas and under armor for his rights to him. Right. There's no bad. But this is terrible publicity. Yeah. When the shoe and causes an injury to the wasn't the shoes prospects and injury as Meyer, you staying entrenched. I really do. I mean, just in the face of your so wrong on this. But I admire your efforts furnace blasts of immediate criticism. One of the strangest takes ever, they just filled an athlete deny even paying yet. They should be paying him because. Oh, yeah. Pivot, and then as oddly quiet in the studio right now. But this is a we all know, this is a huge day for shame tourism. We should have a running clock.

Shamateurism all the buzzwords, boys. We are playing the hits today. This is exciting. Dan had some pep in his step. What else to talk about? So. Yeah. It's the most unbelievable. This guy is so mazing Zion. Williamson like he just has it. That's how you get hurt in a way that we've never seen before you make a shoe explode. Are you kidding on Nike shoe? That's how that's how strong do. Right news for Nike when did that pep in his step happened. The seconds. I got hurt like the pep and Dan staff soon as ion was announced that he was out. This might be the last time we ever sees ion play college basketball. I heard that his dad went down after the injury, and you know, that his dad's in they're like, Nope, you're not playing you're not going back out there. That was the biggest bummer about it. Why would he play? Now, why why it was like, Kyrie Irving? You remember when Kyrie Irving was at Duke. I Kyrie Irving play Duke, maybe ten times, it was just always heard was just waiting just waiting for the NBA is a real bummer. But if you're zion's dad, you're doing exactly that like, I don't care, even if it's not bad. You're not going back in the basketball game. Hear about sidetracking. Correct. Coach K's you'll be telling him that. Right. But he never would you were you guys watching the game Bill were you watching the game? Did this dry you out because the promotion for it was crazy on ESPN? And I taped the game because I had the mass singer to watch. But I taped it and that was going to go back and watch it, and I was aware of what was going on. And it it kinda took me out of it. What do you think happened to the shoe by the way because I saw them going to the Basketball Hall of fame? Great day for night. No, no. So I was watching sports center after and I saw MaGee of mardi McGee and he was at the game. And he was talking about how he took a picture of it underneath. And they kinda hit it under the chairs, and then at some point someone came and just put it in like a bag and it disappeared. All they don't know where it ended up like it, just it's gone. It's gone. So. Yeah, that that shoe is a huge. It's a hottest piece of sports memorabilia right now that shoe confess a pretty penny. Connex, you know, I think Nike's had it destroyed..

"That was a bummer last night. I got myself all excited to watch college basketball regular season game that never happens, especially when the university Miami men's basketball team is in good. So. So this was a point viewing. I even went to a local bar because I wanted to watch this game and feel the atmosphere and excitement around other people and thirty six seconds in the game. It all got ruined. What's the difference between a bar in a pub? Well, it is. I think it's just geographic pubs are European. But it's the same thing. Right. Yeah. The same thing they're synonyms their synonyms and in the United States, if you're like an Irish themed or United Kingdom theme bar. You'll just call yourself a pup because that's just what it's like the bathroom and the lure the same thing. But they call it the Lou over in the United Kingdom at feel like if you're watching soccer, you say you go to the pub to watch the sock match up. As you do that. You're supposed to do that. As you do have a pint. So you guys also super pumped about this game. And then immediately disappointed. Oh, I wasn't there. I wasn't disappointed. We saw like the coolest thing we've ever seen shoe exploded because of this man's foot. Even his injuries are viral. I mean that was impressive. He's got it. I mean Nike. I don't even think he's like he's not mad at that. Right. I would. This Matt yet would be. You know, you spin this like look our shoes are Nike and Zion. Is that good? He can make them explode. Wait, run his marketing campaign by me..
