"We're covering the things that we haven't gotten to really mean to get to man that feeling that you know that that feeling that it needs scratched of wanting to get around to stuff. You know my desk and I really thought for sure since I'm not traveling that I would. I would get it taken care of. And I started I was down like a couple of inches of paper bilge that builds up on my desk. I was down a couple inches. Yes, I'm going to see the surface of this desk before before. This virus releases us from its grip, and now it's super building back up again. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, it's frustrating. I! Do want to point out. Somebody has gotten something done. which is that Tony Anita? Hull took the initiative and went and ask our listeners before we recorded this show what they haven't gotten to or have been meaning to get to in their lives. And so with that in mind, I wanNA, bring Tony Anita Hill up to the Mike Tony on double duty this week. We have another thing for you later. What's on, but this one? You don't have to wear a pep blows for what's on the hot sheet. What our listeners saying? They haven't done to okay so Stephanie. Lundgren wrote I moved right before the stay at home order and I thought for sure I'd be completely unpacked and organized by now. I've been working from home, so it's not at all free time, but still. I See Oh Yeah. Oh that's the worst feeling as a person who struggles with OCD not being unpacked. I, have to tell you Stephanie. I think I was in one house for twelve years before I unpacked the last box. There's always a one box. That just has stuff that you probably never should have brought with you from the last place. Just. Couldn't you just couldn't think it and say goodbye, and so you still have it? And just sits around in a box for Twelve Years Until the cats pee in that box. That's usually that's usually what motivates we. We have a similar problem in this household and in some ways. It's worse because we bought this house. I'm going to say eight or nine years ago. and. We were living in an apartment before then and literally three weeks before we were supposed to leave the apartment and moved into. This house a pipe behind. Washing machine in our apartment burst, the whole place flooded dip fire department had to come and because of the water remediation. Process we weren't able to pack up our old apartment to move here. That had to be done by professionals. Wow! I didn't know there was such a thing. And some of those boxes were some. are still in our garage. Things wet, so you have boxes of wet belongings in your. Oh, you got to get those out you can. Boxes of wet belonging like a growth of mold. Bax Airs what you got. No, no, it's not the belongings. Themselves weren't wet. I want to point out that the flooding apartment wasn't like knee deep or anything, but it was A. Damaged the floor and stuff like that. No, that was a big flood I. Remember that I. Remember finding you and Jeannie. In the middle of the apartment in a tiny ship. And the Terni should talk to. Our tour! Wow So. There were professional packers. What does that have to do with the fact that you didn't open the boxes and take the stuff out I mean? Did it matter who put it in the box? Did you guys say to each other? It's not touched that professional packers put it in. No movers, the movers were allowed into put everything into boxes. My point is that because we didn't have time to pack up our own apartment all the crap that we were going to get rid of ended up being transferred to our new house. And you just haven't got around to. Condie, what was what was it? Marie CONDIE ING it. I didn't Murray Condo. It yet Maury Condo. What is it Tony is it? It's Murray Condo.
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
"We're here today to talk about our June twenty twenty. Book Club, pick, convenience store, woman by Sayaka Murata translated by Jeannie Taffy, Takamori. Yes, so there's a divisive opinion on this book and I'm like really excited to dive into it. A lot of people were questioning our decision to pick this book as a lighter More I guess not dark read. Okay, but the thing is like our book club. Pick before that was a warrior woman and I. Think were your was darker than convenience store. Women didn't think it was that dark to be having me neither. Get into a little, are we? Are we the Weirdos here for? Okay, so without further ado, let's get into our. Our discussion. We want you start off with the Book Jack. Description Keiko is normal at school and university. People find her odd and her family worries. She will never fit in to make them happy. Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks. But in Keiko Circle just won't do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and Green Tea as the pressure to find a new job or worse, a husband increases. Keiko is forced to take desperate action so the story itself is a slice of life. story about a convenience store worker toll from first person perspective from the main character Keiko and. I guess we can start with just the style of the store because it's very straightforward. Right and that's some so I don't know if you have this information, but is this the style of Sayaka Murata, or is this because of the condition of Keiko are someone who is like atypical? I have not read any of meritas other works because they happened been translated, but from what I've gleaned from interviews like she does have a very deadpan style to her writing. It is very straightforward like you said and a lot of her previous novels because convenience store women, while it's the first novel to be translated in the states. It's also her tenth novel. and. Yeah like that was really surprising to me. But her other novels are they kind of the same same themes like it's about nonconformity in Japanese Society AH take on gender roles and sexuality, and just like Japanese, societal issues on celibacy and a sexuality and. There are two books that have actually like I'm really hoping that they get translated 'cause the premise is. It's so bonkers There's one book called dwindling world I don't know the Japanese title is, but it set in dystopia where all procreation is made artificially and sex between a heterosexual married couple is is considered to be pretty disgusting like they. Oh, yeah, it's. It's not really a taboo, but it's more of like. Is this like Why are you doing that? A better way to like make children like. Why would you go through sex so? That's like a really interesting premise to me and then the other one. which definitely sounds like my jam? It's called sausage in Soussan, and it roughly translate to translates to birth murder, and this is also a dystopia novels and they banned. It's a dystopia novel where? Where a person who gives birth to ten children they they get to lawfully murder another person down. Yeah, right? About a royal. The Battle Royale I want this book to be translated immediately. Into a movie! Speaking speaking of like adapting it to a movie I. Think Convenience Store. Woman would work really well as a Japanese DEALLM. Or even just like a limited series like one of the Japanese. Soap operas or TV, shows are kind of like the BBC were they're pretty like they're short and sweet. Yeah, yeah, well well. The thing is like a convenience store. Women is such a short novel. It's only like. Because of the size of the hardcover book it's IT'S A lot smaller and very very cute. But in the smart in the smaller version, it's like around. Two hundred pages were like two hundred and fifty pages a in like a normal Let letter size paperback. It's like a hundred and fifty pages, so it's more of a novella than an actual novel. But this book was really really popular. It sold six hundred and fifty thousand copies in Japan and it won the Tugela prize.

"P. Jeannie a real estate expert are you doing this morning JP Hey good morning guys I'm doing great what they are today Thursday yes there really you don't know what day it is Amanda quarantine look do

twenty I developed here will never forget that's absolutely right you may not know the day but you definitely know the error so tell me a real estate expert put on that hat I'm I'm seeing reports this morning that home prices are actually going up during the pandemic what what's up with that you know it's inventory there's no there's no holds up there for sale it's a different price ranges so builders of course has slug down the slow down the key construction and they are they were little I have said this is you would imagine homeowners that you know returning on appeals because over forty per homes on the market the spring is always where the inventory starts flourishing starts starts growing you know hello it didn't happen so are now we've got this this case fever cabin fever for people to pick it up we've got people that there are are are fearing another second coronavirus quarantine in the fall whether it happened or not people people are fearful that so they would hurry up and get involved you got crazy low interest rates if they are just a general population that needs a home guess what got the perfect storm for home prices increases because people are getting in multiple visits in in offers it in fifty percent of the homes across nine states we've seen many wars it's crazy yeah well the last time you and I talked you know the nature of buying a home is so different I mean it used to be kind of thing where you jump in the car with your agent you went and visited you know eight or ten or however many houses trying to get a look at the lay out near the decorum how's the landscaping now because your neighbors and all that stuff now it's almost all virtual now you're you're taking a chance on a house that you're seen pictures of it may be a little video inside well that looks good so what do you think yeah dude rocked by it said you know what will make it ours doesn't matter other than the current apartment condo or or time you know right yes so so I mean do you think that has much impact I mean are people more or less likely to buy based on pictures rather than actually being in the physical plant I think it's a let's let's be real if you're gonna buy a home the very small percentage of people are going to go into by Saddam's enough to call it but we are seeing a good percentage of that I would say about ten percent of the homes that were fine really about the example to a lot more so that's not really a pretty much as before but during the quarantine during a lockdown you have a picture of the homes were silent scenes where I can't imagine signing my name to a loan for two hundred two hundred fifty three thousand dollars on a place I can set foot in yet yeah I mean if that is your best option and you can look at the photos that you win that you even have to pay for it let's let's face it if you're if you're buying a home started seeing you likely have to bit give her so yeah I mean you're you're buying it and then if you don't you have a look at it you gotta realize that at the current situation that I've had yeah I I guess I understand is there any regional difference in that I mean that what's going on in Texas is going on in California is going on and York now you got it you know that's that's always real C. right you look at New York because those guys New York you see an exodus of of of residents there so they're they're getting flooded with inventory unfortunately nobody wants violence yeah so it's too early to ask because our prices up to decline in New York it will because of the inventory surplus is commercial and residential real estate right people live in a country in the statement live into a California believe it out of the question of the Florida the two of Texas third so just bear with us state or city so that's that but the taxes of course were absorbing the brunt of east coast west coast it west all around here in in situations pretty dire cities like Austin becoming the next Silicon Valley the bricks the couple the next day yeah yeah Texas Dallas even the the the help for everybody else you know financial with hospitality in the manufacturing so it is about this I guess boil it down if it continues to be a seller's market yeah it's gonna be like this for the rest of the summer unfortunately just because of inventory so low most places we only have about two months worth of inventory and healthy market a balanced buyer seller market requires almost six months worth of inventory wow just to give an idea in the crash of two thousand seven we have three years worth of inventory so you know the crash is not anywhere happening you know the thing that we were concerned with was job losses what's gonna happen to these people that can afford to make mortgage payments at the big board was for parents remember yep people are looking that up on wikipedia in Oxford dictionary what is for parents what does that mean and it's not forgiveness first of all so does does that could make the mortgage payments or rent payments we're were also given a couple of months but they have to pay it back and the treasury secretary how came on last night and said

Nick Saviano from world the renowned Saviano Tennis Academy
"Hi Nick Welcome to the Functional Tennis podcast pleasure to be here. I've been meaning to get you on the show while we have your honor top academies around the world page which is probably one of our most viewed pages on the website. So it's great to of see. We've the Blurb Rebecca Academy and all the details would. It's great to speak to the main mind as well so delighted to chat which tell me how is life at the moment with all this cove? It situation has DECAPA me gone well. Unfortunately we have had to shut the academy down at least temporarily as all the Kaddoumi's in Florida have done and I guess around the World. But we've been able to stay in touch with our players and we are poised and ready to go as soon as they open. Things are coming in the next week or two. So we're pretty excited to get back out on the courts and fully functioning. Well that's great news. You haven't locked all your players in Lake. Rafeh did no. I didn't know he locked them all in but no we have not done that in a lot of our players actually are here with emily members or they're at private housing so we're good to go. He had me. Did Inscribe live with I think was Andy Murray Sane? Whenever they got closed down whoever was stuck there had to stay there. Nobody's lead in or out so he's running a tight ship over there. Well you have to. Whenever you're dealing with. Young people is enormous responsibility. So you always have to err on the side of caution. Yes no true. It's different when you're entrusted by parents to do the best for the kids so I think you're right. It's really important. So tell me a bit of empty Kademi. How long has the KADEMI being an operation? Well I started the academy shortly after leaving the US. Ta at the US was a national coach for boys tennis. I was eventually director coaching for men's tennis for the United States. I played on the tour for nine years and then I was also the head of high performance coaching education which was really actually exciting and then after that when I left I opened the academy in two thousand and three in. I started working with a few players I decided I really wanted to go out on my own and established my own methodology and a lawsuit for coaching and working with young people. So way back then. Two thousand three. That's when we started and it went extremely well and some of the believe it or not some of the first people I was working with were jan-michael Gambill. And also Vince Spadea. And also very young. Eleven year old. Sloan Stevens came a few years later and Jeannie Bouchard and Monica Point Again. A lot of other really good players started evolving or coming. And so it's been really exciting. It's been an amazing experience. Actually over the years up really really enjoyed it. Let's just cut back a bit before the academy and before. Usda tour life. You're a top fifty player. What was it like in the late seventies being a top fifty player? It was an amazing experience. I was one of the top. Juniors in the United States at the end of the year is ranked tree in the country. Then was the top recruit going into college so I wanNA going to Stanford. University was an all American there my freshman and sophomore year. Then I turned pro but back then I was one hundred thirty two in the world when Charon pro took me only four months and I was in the top hundred so the depth and the game wasn't quite the same as it is now so in one respect it was. Let's say less of a long grind to get into the top one hundred but on the other hand the rewards weren't as great nowadays. The players go to phenomenal hotels. They get paid and qualifying. The money is great. I remember I got around sixteen. At Wimbledon twice and the specific number I remember was four thousand pounds now. Four THOUSAND POUNDS. That probably is about seven or eight thousand dollars. Not even that much and today. I'm not sure what the guys in the gals paid for a fourth-round let's say Wimbledon. But I would suspect it's probably in the two hundred thousand range so money has changed a lot but it's more than just the money the quality of the way everything runs on the tour the ability to communicate with people. You know you have the phones. You have computers when I was playing. We didn't have cell phones. Believe it or not so completely different world when you went away for six weeks you really were far away. It was tough to get phone calls back with your families and so is a different way of life back then than it is now and I enjoyed it. I love playing the Grand Slams but I retired at twenty eight years old. I spent about eight and a half years on the tour and when I retired I was still in the top hundred for singles and doubles. I was recently married and we had our first child and when my first child was born. Nicole our daughter that was it. I said I'm done and I'm going to get a head start on the rest of my career which turned out to be coaching. Those a good decision and tell me what was your most memorable match. Great question one of the most memorable matches I ever had was in England. At Wimbledon I was playing a match against Pat Dupre. Who was a semi-finalist the year before and I believe at the time was ranch around twelve in the world and the day before I played buster macho from England and he was number one British player and I remember having served to save the match five or six times so I one nine seven in the fifth set and so I had to come out the next day and play again against Patty pray and this match was in cold fog long match and I remember my body aching and wound up winning at one. Twelve ten in the fifth set and I remember just kind of overcoming the exhaustion and at ten all eleven ten. I was ahead and I finally got a break point and I remembered to this day thinking okay. Should I go for this and ripped return because you know I just can't seem to break and this is one opportunity so I cheated thinking he was going to hit back in he did and I happened to hit it? Just right and boom. It was a winner and thank goodness over. I had a couple long matches. In Wimbledon at one with Brian Godfrey four in the world and that took either three or four days to complete believe it or not and I was down two sets to love and five two and it was almost nine o'clock at night the US keepers. Were all there waiting to the targets of the courts. So they're waiting for me to lose so I was down two point quickly. Want Upholding Sur. Five three and I played one of the best games of my life. Five four I bright serve. I hold sir. I break him and win the set then because we were there late. They didn't put me on I the next day and so they had a women's match on it rained a lot that day so that was a Friday. We only got like five games in so then pushed us over till Saturday but of course we were onto cords till very late again and so they didn't put us on ride again so we wound up playing one set and then it got dark again and then of course Sunday play so then we have to wait and then on Monday morning we played. We've finished the match and it had a happy ending. I one six one fits so those were my two good memories of Wimbledon long matches that stood out.

worldwide if you look at the flu every year and kills like a hundred thousand people worldwide minimum maybe hundreds of thousands of people worldwide every year so why are we also worried about coronavirus Megan McArdle has this statistical dot experiment to remind you that when there's an exponential growth factor things move really quickly right you don't see anything in the C. everything right it let let's say you have a pond with lily pads example that you get statistically and it explains why were also worried today if you have a pond with lily pads and the lily pads are going to overtake the pond as they grow in each day the lily pads double the number of lily pads double so let's say that day one it's one to which to death rates for right to keep stumbling on the very last day the lily pads cover the entire pond the question is at what point did lily pads cover half the pond at what point it really has got a half upon and the answer is the day before they cover the entire contract if they're doubling every day and that means that half the town was covered yesterday and today boom suddenly the entire pond is covered that is how exponential growth works okay that is what people are feeling in terms of coronavirus is that we have exponential growth of coronavirus what you end up with is no one around me has it oops everyone I think that's it right that that that is what people are fearing is that sudden is that sudden object and this is what is being feared by the trump former homeland security adviser Tom Bossert he says hospitals are basically ten days away from being creamed he suggested in an op ed that we are we are in trouble in terms of our our hospital facilities as officials must pull the trigger on aggressive interventions said aggressive internet interventions put off and ease the burden on hospitals and other healthcare infrastructure and that of course is true as one of my wrists wells then the hospitals that need to be prepared as I already said mayor bill de Blasio said that things are happening intensely in New York City and the governor Jay Inslee has no restricted gathers more than two hundred and fifty people in king county as well as several as well as you know how much and Pierce counties which are the the biggest counties in Washington state that means no soccer games means no it means no baseball games it means that basically all major gatherings ought to be canceled according to Jay Inslee the governor of Washington state Dr foundry has suggested there be no crowds at NBA games so basically if you have tickets for opening day in the United States for baseball you can fairly bank that that is not going to happen why colleges are canceling events I would not be surprised if my college events this semester for example are canceled that would not be a great shock again I think that all of this makes a certain amount of sense like better caution and they have this viral outbreak you want to reduce the size of the the spread and the and the quickness of the spread is to give us time right now we're bargaining for time but we don't know what the death rates are on this thing we just don't and what that means is that every attempt to slow the spread of the virus buys a day for people to develop vaccines they're going to be more effective in slowing or stopping the spread of the virus of becomes just another seasonal problem instead of becoming an overwhelming threat to western populations so this is it it is in this light it is important to recognize that when the federal government fails along this along these lines you can be absolutely disastrous there's a a piece from The New York Times that is just devastating talking about how the federal government did in fact blow the month the president trump was a president trump said very early on we're shutting down travel from China and a lot of people unless I'm not this is racist on this is terrible ten people were saying you have virus when buyers is racist you can see when my wrist is a drum said no we're sitting down travel that was a very good thing it was a very smart thing was the right thing to do the problem is that only buys you time because it turns out that some people are going to get in and any other problem so what did the federal government do with a month and president trump bought them by shutting down travel from from when the answers basically nothing according to Dr Helen chew infectious disease expert in Seattle she knew the United States and not have much time in late January the first confirmed American case of coronavirus have landed in her area critical questions need answers have been infected anyone else according to The New York Times was the deadly virus already working in other communities and spreading as luck would have a doctor to have a way to monitor the region for months as part of a regional research project into the flu she and a team of researchers have been collecting nasal swabs residents experiencing symptoms throughout the Puget Sound region three purpose the test for monitoring coronavirus they would need the support of state and federal officials but nearly everywhere Dr Jew turned officials repeatedly rejected the idea interviews and emails show even as weeks called by an average margin countries outside of China where the infection begin by February twenty fifth Dr Chu and her colleagues could not bear to wait any longer they began performing coronavirus test without government approval but came back in from the worst fear they quickly had a positive test from a local teenager with no recent travel history the corona virus had already established itself on American soil without anybody realizing it Dr she recalled thinking it must've been here this entire time is just everywhere already in fact officials later discovered through testing the virus had already contributed to the deaths of two people guns killed twenty more in the Seattle region over the following days federal and state officials said the flu study could not be repurposed because it didn't have explicit permission from research subjects labs are also not certified for clinical work well now Jeannie affable questions doctor should others argue there should be more flexibility in an emergency very much so many lives could be lost this is correct I mean like if you give permission for somebody to do a nasal swab for flow and that is repurposed enables one for coronavirus I honestly fail to see how any reasonable person would consider that a violation of privacy I nobody must know that I had grown up at night they're not gonna release your specific rotavirus task it just allows the state to do something on Monday night state regulators told them to stop testing altogether the failure to tap into the flu study detailed here for the first time was just one in a series of missed chances by the federal government to ensure more widespread testing during the early days of the outbreak when containment would've been easier instead local officials across the country were left to work in the dark as the crisis go undetected exponentially now so I think this is from so now I don't I don't think trump is monitoring local level task I think this is the fault of the massive regulatory bureaucracy that prevents people from doing reasonable things it turns out that the federal government well it is well placed to issue brought national guidelines is not well placed to deal with local testing that has to be done it turns out the local communities maybe the the fastest to react to the sort of thing right voluntary shut downs right now happening across the country with regard to major public events and those are happening on the local and state level without the federal government even doing anything it turns out the people who see federalism is the obstacle to this sort of thing they're doing it wrong local and state officials are more answerable to local populations and are in fact more likely to request the people do responsible things in fact is that porn was yesterday in the in the Jewish community basically every pore institute that I've heard of in my area meaning every big poor meal with big gatherings lots of kids those were basically shut down voluntarily without any guidance from the federal state or local officials is so the notion that the federal government needs to be running this thing in extraordinarily top down fashion the federal government should be coordinating all the officials letting them know sort of the minimum of what they expect but standing in the way of local officials doing what they need to do to Tampa's thing down is a completely different thing and that is a testament to the stupidity of bureaucracy generally

Jeannie after he complained about a up a piece of a piece of equipment called a re closer and this is something that will automatically restart a power line after it turns off any was saying that the the device allows PGD to avoid sending people out to do this if they would do it automatically but that's pretty common they said these temporary faults which are common re closers can also be risky because they actually shoot bursts of electricity they could start a fire if a broken line is in contact with the tree or a butcher of some sort of Dr education not taught her networks for twenty years at the company he says he and his colleagues complained to management about the re closers repeatedly since the company began installing them in twenty seventeen remember this is just months before P. genies power lines sparked a series of fires up there in napa that's that's the area where he worked so he says the utility was on safely installing these re closers in higher risk fire areas but that the company didn't take the warnings seriously so that needless to say P. genies up to its neck in other legal problems right now so they asked the judge to deny the motion saying that he should just let is ongoing union reprint the grievance he filed after termination sort of run its course they're busy of course with the bankruptcy in the billions of dollars that they settled for a joystick just last week as a matter of fact but here's the thing if in fact this is a problem and if they had somebody in their own company telling them that this was going to be a problem and the timing of this works out as well because like you said it was months before the fire in the wine country that roared through and killed a bunch of people and damaged billions of dollars worth of property this is the guy they want to be quiet this is the guy they want to shot a how much of a whistle blower did he need to be I am of the belief that PGA any new its lines were unsafe but just didn't want to pay the money to update their equipment they were just kind of rolling the dice with the the lives of so many people that live around those faulty power lines you know I don't think this guy was this genius I had this aha moment is like the re closers or whatever the hell the call right you know what I mean I think that as a company it's filled with engineers that the writing is on the wall they they they didn't update their equipment for decades and they knew that they they should but they just did it because they want to pay the money up front the the I think the problem that you're going to see is that these re closers this specific type of equipment was implicated in not just that fire in wine country the the nuns fire complex but also the which fire the huge one down in San Diego twelve years ago the a huge fire in Australia from ten years ago that was also killed a hundred and twenty people I think so these types of you know this pattern is going to be a problem because P.

Jeannie including this top Hearns guy can say this was a problem before we knew it was a problem going into this and we still use that as the equipment and didn't do anything to change it they have since figured out a way to disable the re closers when there is a high fire risk we talk about the public safety power shut offs going into this but what they said is the P. genies doing a limited trial of turning off the re closer's disabling them during those high wind high risk wind times they're saying hopefully that that is one of the reasons why they've been able to prevent massive wildfires this year this season I guess all right street lamp inequity is what is the latest concernant LA city hall not typhus not typhoons not homeless not the plague not traffic not traffic not the five through Norwalk no no it's a it's all about street lamps who's got who doesn't and so this is this is right up there was shade isn't it yeah that that's exactly what I thought of we now have lighting privilege in this city and you might not even know it but you're a you are a recipient of light privilege not just white privilege but white privilege as well Gary channel were alive today in our news a bruise we are in Downey this is Jay's restaurant and brewhouse a five page article in the LA times about three planned out making you feel bad about your street lamps you can your eyes on the radio nobody can see you do that Joe Kwan has the latest a school bus in a van impression lake Elsinore hurting at least eight people cal fire riverside says eight people were taken to the hospital this morning including two with serious injuries military specialists in New Zealand every coverage six more bodies after deadly volcanic eruption.
