Looking Back at Your Year in Animal Crossing: New Horizon
"On march twentieth the very day of new york's lockdown order nintendo released a game called animal crossing new horizons. Here's simon parkin who writes by gaming and technology for the new yorker so animal crossing. New horizons came out pretty much just as the world was going into. Lockdown is sort of like a digital. Dole's house i suppose but but not as tragic as that sounds maybe for forty year old bad to be playing. Basically you you move on city to an island which is so baron a bit of a wasteland you essentially forage clicked would rox things like that and slowly build up your island house by house and there's an added incentive as well to to do this because you can invite friends from around the world when she ireland and then give them a tool and obviously when you get to your your house you want to come in and fraud to be lovely and also you know. I guess if we're honest to be slightly better than their islands they'd be working on and so for a few weeks. It just was the thing that obsessed everyone on the incident. Just that everyone you know. We rule sort of showing off photographs or stills of our island house coming along and yeah it was just a lovely moment. I suppose when when it was difficult to get outside it was a game that allowed us to sort of frolic around in the countryside and sniff flowers without that being controversial. This is my island. It is called will town okay. Let me take you up here. So this is over here. On the on the left we could a large area of ground. Fenced-in this is my wife's industrialized throws growing outfit. You buy seeds for different varieties of flowers and in by Sowing seeds. You can in time germinate anew color and that's something that she's been another time shoe this popular vegas not stuff. The game was invented by a nintendo. Employees could cut suge a gucci Who found it was just spending his time at the office and not getting to see his children as much as he wanted so he sort of made this game as a way for them to work on a project together and then that way to connect. And i think that's That's been true for for the park in household as well. It was nice to be playing a game together sort of as a family that we were all involved in old contributing to that felt good and certainly animal crossing has enough scope to accommodate all kinds of different interests and different player types. And for me the thing that an it drives my family nuts is i got whatever the gene is that turns people into collectors and completions as always you spend a lot of my time fishing at different times of the day trying to find that elusive fish. That you're going to fill that space and you know i know for my daughter. She plays it in quite different ways as she is definitely more into the social aspect of interacting with the different animals on the island and she spent a lot of time trying to convince the animals. She didn't like to move out the way he do. This is just sort of being mean to them. Shown them and so sometimes it'd be playing the game. Would it would look like. I was running to go and have a conversation one of the animals and she would just scream at me. Don't know whatever you do do not talk to the aibo. Because because i want him out. I suppose yeah she just wanted to nurture the the perfect village and have it so and that's really what. The game encourages her house. We should go see that. This is how she's got a beach house which she picked out. And if you come down here just to the sort of sandy area in front of her from the arranged like a lotta different teddy bears and pandas having a picnic. It looks like they're eating sushi. Which seems unlikely. But i mean this is the game all about dioramas and this is the diorama that she's chosen to make that. I think i may have thrown into teddy bear to help her out. I wonder whether it was so special this year. Just the timing with the lockdown. That i wonder if it will ever be the same again for you know. Food thought generation. Who has now played animal crossing when the whole world it felt like was playing animal crossing You know they will be animal crossings again in the future. I don't know if it will ever be quite like it. Was this year. let's come into the hang on. We're gonna go up here. Sorry we're gonna crossover and Yeah his just a. We go out to a sleeping bag a little campfire and a telescope on the rocks on the northeast and most point of the on. I don't know just a little idea. That as i guess to extend the universe. There's there's more out there.
Are You Having Fun Yet by Rachel Shanken of MindBodyWise
"Are you having fun yet. By rachel schenken mind body. Wise dot com. It's never too late to have fun in life was recess and the game was captured. The flag my big brother was in the sixth grade and as a few years behind in second grade usually only the older kids played. But this time my big brother invited me to join. His team is an extra special honor to be part of their secret operation. This'll serious business. We were all determined full of adrenaline. Nothing else in the world mattered. But outsmarting out running out doing the other team as we disperse. My job was to pretend that i wasn't playing house. The watch for a secret signal from my brother and then a sneak attack to free team members from jail. I faked not playing for a while. But don't be fooled even while pretending not to play was deeply immersed in the game of being the best secret agent. I could be when several of our key team members were in jail which was really just a big oak tree. I casually walked onto enemy territory determined to free my team members from captivity. How shaking. I'll sure the other team could tell what i was up to you but i wasn't going down without a fight. I walked for what felt like miles but was probably only thirty yards when i finally reached the sri i high five all four captive team members. Granting them freedom victory. I don't remember who won the game that day. It didn't really matter at the time of my life playing imagining joining together. Being fully emerged body mind spirit on a mission that was solely intended for the sake of fun thinking back to that place. Day makes me smile. When did we trade being playful for being busy until missing. We don't notice. It says dr stewart brown founder of the national is to play. He also asserted that quote. The opposite of play is not work. It's depression and quo. Many of us have lost ourselves in this. Go go go busy. Busy busy work. Work world are worth and identities are wrapped up in our productivity. We believe that we are valued for what we accomplish. Being busy is a status symbol. That many of us were proudly and yet so many of us are unhappy. Grinding through jobs we don't like pushing through our days like workhorses feeling uninspired and unappreciative of our lives. We forgotten how to engage in play. We've replaced playing and having fun with everything we think we are supposed to be doing. And then wonder why we feel unhappy and unfulfilled when we take time to play we can reduce stress solve problems with more ease inspire creativity improve our relationships and be healthier. Happier humans for children play cultivates. Creativity enhances problem solving abilities. Boosts intelligence and opens the doors to discovery joy and wonder as well as fostering human connection plays the same positive impact on adults. Play for both kids and adults is more than just fun and games. It's a way of being that is natural to our humanness while also offering a multitude of benefits for our brains our moods and our bodies remember what it feels like to play. Imagine yourself as an eight year old kid outside on a warm summer day playing with your friends whether it's swing set a game of tag climbing on the monkey bars or your own game of capture the flag if used the memory into your cells mind body and all your senses as if you're there now as he let that memory sink in capture the joy and freedom. You felt when you were eight and think about what it would feel like to experience joy and freedom through play as an adult. We can integrate play into our busy lives and live with a sense of joy and wonder through our commitment to play a little bit of play. Goes a long way. You'll have to rearrange your life to get started. Play your way. Commit to a play date once a week. Create your own adventure or use some of these suggestions. Host a scavenger hunt get creative. Make your lists call your friends or drop invite in their inbox to meet in a secret location or hire someone to create a scavenger hunt for you.

And I'm glad your name isn't less more. You know, I knew a guy who actually had a conundrum he had He had an identity crisis muds. His name was less more, and we asked him, You know what was better, less for more. I guess that's what we're going to talk about this When aren't we Martin? Because, as you said, before, there's no right or wrong. Answer to this. We talk about maintaining a lifestyle of retirement. I no like a cz. You've pointed out so many times before, and rightly so. I'm kind of semi retired. I really enjoy working with you on this program. Because we enlightened people We try to help. So let's take a look at some of these things you can do right now, whether less Maura's listening or not right now help make it happen for you, and one of the things is prioritizing. You talk about it so many times and so eloquently about prioritizing what's important in life. Well, this is where simpler is better. So this is where you sit down. If you're married. If you're not, it's a relevant, significant other. It's it's relevant for other things, but not for this because this is where you really want to figure out. Hey, I've just put in my 30 years my 35 years my 25 years and I really think you know that this person's example would be like and I think in the next five years I'm going to actually step away from this high pressure. Whatever it is job you have career So prioritize what's important. What is your what is important to you? What is it you want to do? And if you can make the list of simple and clear is possible, it's going to be much easier to make that list happen. And I'm not talking about a bucket list. I I hate that term. But for lack of a better word. Some people might call this that, but I would part as I'd write down the five or six things that you know your life will not be complete without accomplishing these. And then get him get the list and then condense it down by, you know what's the most important And then I would really circle the top three or four that, you know, maybe got 10 things on the list. But what's the most important Let's take those three or four. Let's make sure they happen. Let's get a goal. Let's make sure this happens. Us. Make that happen. You know the difference. Chuck Up, said this many times between a A goal and a dream and s. So what's the difference? Chuck? Do you know the difference? Really Dreaming a goal? Well, I think a dream could be one of those things. You hope. What happened? A goal is something you cannot make happen. You know that description, but here's really what it is in my mind. The goal is nothing but a dream. With a deadline. Now that's true. I lucked out by the think about it. I'm going to do this. I'm gonna lose £20. That's yes, but that is a dream, right? I'm gonna lose £20 by January 1st. Oh, now that's measurable. That's actually going to happen or not happen. That's right. That's a goal. That's a goal and that's all it is. It's simply a dream with a deadline, so put these down and then let's put some some dates on these things of when they're gonna happen in your new phase. New chapter of life. How is a new chapter in the book? Whatever You wanna call it. Um, do the math. You know, Let's talk about do we need to downsize instead of keeping the bigger house has taken up too much of our budget, maybe, or maintenance or Or maybe it's not even that. Maybe the house is paid for and it's it's but it takes up too much of your time. Not allowing you to do the things that are actually important, So this whole idea of mineralization becomes really important. When you're trying to focus on other things, Distractions can keep you from hitting those goals. That's true, and sometimes the smaller homes better. Well, that's right. And then sometimes you might think, boy. I do love North Carolina or South Carolina. But maybe I want to spend part of my time in Florida or Texas or Aaron went out. Maybe go see the kids in California are watching it. But so you can review those options of relocating and see what that's going to. Potentially. Maybe we're going to do that in a more tax friendly state than the one you might currently live in. So those are good on deny love this one, but about you know, I'm retired, retiring. Just to go backto work. Well, wait a second. That's not a bad idea. If you consider other work possibilities if it's going to be something that fulfills you differently. Then the current job you've had for 25 years. You say there's nothing wrong with keep working. You know, retirement for so For many, many of my clients looks like this. They leave job X Y Z to take job, ABC and job ABC. They say they wish they would have done 20 years ago. They're having so much fun, but they they were in this other one, and they said they left it sometimes is for full time work. Sometimes it's like you're doing for part time work. But the reality is potentially they're able to balance get him out of the house. We talked about that on the previous one about you know, how do you deal with the like During the crew of the 24 7 of being with your significant other You know, Having those other commitments allows you to get out in the workforce and out into the life a little bit. Well, that's true, And I think that's very, very important to define that because you gotta have fun at whatever you're doing. If you don't have the financial constraints, you can have a lot more fun at what you could do. And that means maybe cutting some expenses that you that are hidden. Streamlining example your your monthly expenses and again, That's the idea behind that is not quote the budget. I love a spending plan, not a budget, but but that's just to help. Put you in line with your goals. In other words, Sometimes we have these things we want to do. But yet something else that's not as important is taking some of the Financial money that's needed. For what's really important. So you have to look at that. You know, in the course you know, Obviously you want to make sure your debt paid down and things like that. That's the whole show we could do on that. But, you know, make the dream yours. It's this idea of give your dreams substance don't.

"Before we get on out of fear really? This week did fly right by us if flew by very quick week, and it's crazy that we're already in week Two of the National Football League will talk about Browns and Bangles in just a bit, but the two guests joining us today, coming up at the top of the hour. We got to talk basketball, and there is nobody more then I get excited for to talk basketball with and that I enjoyed talking basketball with Then Kendrick Parkins. I love his energy, even though sometimes it takes a crazy He gives a good opinion, and he gives the fun opinion. So Big Park couldn't join us coming up at the top of the hour, and I'll tell you one of the opinions that he has hit on 1000% has been Miami. He's been telling everyone the entire postseason. Don't be surprised if The Miami he'd get to the finals, and now they're up to Oh, as Boston just chokes once again with the big lead in Game one. They're up by 14 in the fourth in game, too. At one point, they led by as many as 17 points. The Heat outscored the Celtics 37 to 17 in that third quarter, so we'll chat him with big perk coming up at the top of the hour, a lot to do. Not only talk obviously, Ah, little Celtics and heat will get his thoughts on this serious between the Lakers and the Nuggets. Game one is tonight. I think most are on the Lakers. I haven't heard anyone that thinks the Nuggets are going to win this series unless they work for the Nuggets organization. And I think the Lakers win this in six Wouldn't surprise me. The Lakers get it done. And five. But this is a good nuggets team, a team that if you have the ability to close them out, if you have the chance to close them out, you better slam the door shut because if you don't, then you see what did transpire with the jazz and you did see what transpired with the Clippers. And that is to come backs that the Denver Nuggets are able to execute and now advance to the Western Conference finals. And also with Park I want to ask about his former coach and Doc Rivers will still touch on the Clippers here at the end of the week, so perk won a championship with the Los Angeles with the Boston Celtics when Doc Rivers essential Clippers coach was coaching the Celtics. Does he think they're not going to be a change made it the coach. But does he think that the Clippers need to get rid of Doc Rivers will do that all coming up an hour from now? Nine PM Eastern six, Pacific. We got NFL picks someone behind Gus Ferrat. It really should be tied up. You gotta push last week, which was ridiculous If the Broncos simply knew how to get the ball to no phantom, the second half if they simply knew how to manage a clock and if they simply knew How to use some timeouts. Gus would not have got the push. They did, though. A Tennessee so we got the push at two points goes. That game was Tennessee 16 Broncos 14 Eso, Gus Frerotte going to join us all throughout the season? Each and every football Friday at 9 P.m. Eastern will square off Give you three more pics as I try to take down the former Pro Bowl quarterback Gus Ferrat. So We also got on sites all side today. Do a little news brief. We got a lot of things coming at you before we get on out of here with the closing bell is always as we end each and every show. I got to start off the show with last night and there was a big football game last night. I know. You may be saying, Zack, you overhyping it. They're saying it's a big football game. It's the Browns and the Bangles. That was again. That's um, intrigue for May because I wanted to see what Joe Burro was. After Game one. Give credit to Joe Burrow. Let's start there. Then we'll get to the Browns angle of it for for job arrow after game or a game he should've won. He threw the game winning touchdown pass. It got called Back Be SA offensive pass interference A J agreeing to do not look good last think they tried to get in the football. And he couldn't catch it. So maybe ages green Agent Greenstein, the National Football League is not going to be as explosive as it once was the market states coming to a close, But maybe a J. Green isn't the player that he once was. He hasn't been that player for a while because of injuries. Now he's you think he's healthy. He would have expect them to bounce back a little bit. We did not see that in game number two, however, going back to get number one against the Chargers. Bangle, sir won that game Or that, at least should have sent the overtime. I thought that was a bad Opie. I call that would've won them the game, and you saw a lot of guts from from borough in that game, and he's handled himself like a pro on ly a game two games into his career, And then you had the unfortunate kick at the end where Bullock had the cramp the calf injury. The okay I missed the kick. And it wasn't even the right zip codes have to blame it on something. Let me go fake an injury on the field, so people actually have some sympathy for me. And then when you're watching you go. Oh, my God. He got hurt. He got hurt when in reality, he just missed the kick. So that was a tough loss for the Bangles Week one against the Chargers and a game number two short week. Yeah, no preseason. The preparation is obviously all changing because of covert 19. That team doesn't have a lot of chemistry that new coaching staff last year. Now you get a new quarterback and you're still trying to find your identity. Let's remember the Bangles don't have a good offensive line. I don't know what's going on with run game. I know they were down in the game, but this is now two games in a row where Joe Mixon has not been great for them. I would like to see them utilize him a little bit more out of the backfield catching the football. So last night, you go down. Your offensive line's not good. You don't have much of a run game. And what is that? Taylor dial up, Zach Taylor tells Joe Barrel. We're goingto football football lot. They threw the football last night 61 times and to have a quarterback with no off season really with no preseason, not thrown interception. When you throw the football 61 times in his second start that shows May thatyou have something not only good but something that's going to be special for a long time Bangles not to take advantage of that they have the quarterback. I believe in Joe. Borrow job? Er last year at this time, No one's talking about Joe borrow other than always the L s U quarterback and look at the story that it has turned into Not only did go undefeated last year knowledge in the national championship last year, he won the Heisman and went from what Fourth or fifth round pick. That maybe he could have gone undrafted last year. I don't know what he was projected before the season to going out there and being the number one overall pick in the draft. And I was around him last year. Twice for the Heisman..

"Parkins, along with NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster Chuck Keeton. Well, how are you a gentleman? I hope both are doing well today, too, in fantastic. Excited about the show. We're going to do a little quotations, I guess. Right? You know, I thought that when we when we saw this, the producer you know, Dave got all this together Force and Steve and all of the show. I was kind of excited about it. You know we were in such a historic time. But let's go back in history and take historic times that we're in right now. While we're battling Covert 19 and everything else that's going on. Let's use some history is a guide toward the future. Well, that's true, because experience is probably the best teacher and in our world of investing for retirement, I think it be wise to learn as much as we can from Somebody else's experiences and mistakes because heaven knows that some of us make them fun, actually, and as long as we learn from him that that's okay.

And when I think of a trump, I think of the feed trough out there on my farms, But you know we're We're talking about the financial bottom of a market or whatever, you know bowls bear markets. No bottoms in the investment world don't end with four year lows. They end with 10 or 15 years. Alos. That was a Pope by Jim Rogers, chairman of the be land interests in the founder, co founder of the Quantum Fund. You know that this didn't used to be the case in the distant past. Economic cycles lasted a fairly reliable four years and four is kind of an odd number. Basically, we always said that economic cycles or 3 to 5 years, which again? That's where that four comes from. But, you know, bear markets just Ward is devastating because the bull markets didn't also carry stocks to these nosebleed heights that we find ourselves going into. Now, you know, it's like now we had AH, cycle that was just weeks short of being 12 years. And that's unprecedented stuff. You know, when you think about that it's interesting that it took the S and P 507 years to reclaim its peak price into 2000 after following backto alot in 2003. That I hadn't seen since 97. So when you think about that it took seven years to come back, and then it wasn't until 2013 the index finally eclipse that high that it saw in 2007. After falling below low from 2003 toe all the way in early 2009. So you know you see these things like golly, that's a long time we have Ah, short term memory. You know, we forget what it's like. Right now. Everybody clearly remembers what covert 19 is like. We're still in the middle of it. And while times it looks like we're heading dramatically out with the state's opening and reopening and some port every 50 all 50 states have Some portion open at this point, but now we're seeing a spike in the corona viruses and in some states, and is there going to be a double dip, and these are a lot of a lot of fears going into this, and it's almost like when I think about investments, Chuck, I think you and I were talking about this. When we talked about investments. People kind of look at right now is entertainment. Well, that's right. And it's probably not a good thing to do alright, because you should have been more like watching paint dry. You've got to quote about that, too. It's not all Samuelsson, the former NHL player, but a guy named Paul Samuelson. Yeah, The famed EPA knowledge is that you know, he actually said that, he said investing should be more like watching paint dry. Watching grass grow is compared to Ah, taken $800 going to Vegas. But unfortunately with the way the markets are in, and I see people getting so caught up in this, they literally they've worked so hard to get their retirement funds to where they are. They're ready for this next venture of recalled retirement. Maybe they're five years away, and they find themselves spending so much of their time watching markets and trying to time I think about one Particular person that was in our offices recently and you know, with the Corona virus. To hit the markets. They were managing their money themselves, which a lot of people do. There's certainly there wrong with that. But they took the time Tio to go ahead and cash in. So right around what was basically they missed the actual bottom by maybe a day or so, but basically took the hard hit and sold. Everything moved it to their money market and then on after the markets, recovered quite a bit in the Dow goes from 19 backto 24 or 25. And all the way up into the close to the 26 27 range, they decided it was time to get back in. They moved the running back into the funds they had chosen before. And then they started experience The wave of fear when the very next week, you know, economic forecasts or this or that decided the market should go back down. Some And so think about what just happened. They they sold at the bottom they bought, it wouldn't appears to be closer to the top in that particular cycle. That particular week of it. And now they're second guessing themselves. That's not the way you end up. You know, the basics of economy and trying to do well in the stock market will be what it's really pretty common sense. You what? You buy low and sell high. That's right. Bad timing. Yeah. I mean, that's what the reality is. How many of us have that crystal ball that allows you to actually do that? And then you have to take the emotional part of it, and we're the emotion comes in. We've talked about this many times. And I clearly understand what they were trying to do so glad they came to see us. They want the gains that the markets provide. But they didn't want the risk that market takes with it. And so they were trying to say, Well, we'll just pull out. Go in, pull out. Go in. And what they ended up doing has cost themselves more money by doing that. Yeah, I love that quote by Peter Lynch, the manager over fidelity of the Magellan Fund. He was he was the manager of it from 2 77 to 90. That was a A famous fund. You know, we don't do that kind of stuff anymore, but, ah, when Peter Lynch said, you know, go for a business that any idiot can run because sooner or later Any idiot probably is going to be running it right? I mean, it's funny how sickle things could be R You know how long is forever investing? You know Warren Buffett CEO Berkshire Hathaway on Ly by something you'd be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years, and that's again a tribute to patients and you know that long term investment outlook. But I think about you know, even the magic of Warren Buffett, certainly Ah, investor with credentials that air Far beyond most people's. But even that, in the discipline that he has Caused him during this corona virus to do what it's been well documented. He sold off all his airline stock. That's bottom of the market and missed the upside that came right after that, and the bottom line is you have to take emotions out of it. And I and I certainly don't know what he was thinking when he did that. I can tell you. I believe emotions certainly played a part of it. Hey, in his opinion, thought the airlines were going to be done. And there you go.

"Well I think there's been a bit of overreaction to some things like the bears two years ago number Devi away defense and last year game. Hex was her for extended period of time. Danny Trevathan was heard for an extended period of time. Smith Miss some time and had an up and down Rookie campaign and they had terrible turnover. Lock and they finished the year seventh in delay defense this year. They upgrade from Leonard. Floyd to Robert Quinn and Akiem Hicks is healthy and safe in and Roquan are healthy. So I think outside of San Francisco they have the best front seven in the NFL. Right I mean give me a better front seven in Roquan Smith Danny Trevathan Robert Quinn Khalil. Mack Akiem Hicks Eddie. Goldman like I don't maybe you have one but I think in San Francisco and then the bears. So if you're going to be a top five defense which I think is I'm not saying the best. But if they were top seven that bad luck and bad injuries and they were number one with a great injury. Look great turnover luck two years ago with. Let's call the top five defense. And then you just get better than Mitch. Trubisky quarterback play like. I'm not asking for great quarterback late. We all know what Nick foles is. But he's he's better than Mitch. He knows the offense better than match. I think he's going to be the starter week. One because Matt. Nagy has taken control of this offense he got rid of Harry. He stands the longtime bears offensive. Line coach he's a legend around here. Two stints with the bears Notre Dame brought in one St Oh from Philadelphia who Matt Nagy knows. He knew Nick foles from Kansas City. He brought him Dmitri's Harris from Kansas City. He brought in Johnny Filipo from Philadelphia. He knew in Philly. And who works with Nick Foles in Philly like? He's he's familiarizing himself. He's bringing in his guys. And so nick foles is his guy he inherited Mitch Trubisky so as long as the offense is better and the defense should be better than last year pretty plainly. This year everybody talked about being a disaster. It was a disaster because it was aesthetically ugly and coming up at twelve when season and there were super bowl expectations but it wasn't a disaster in terms of the results. They won eight games so now with the over under the win. Total coming down from two to eight and a half or eight and their defense should be great. Their offense should be better on paper. The schedule isn't as tough especially early. That should allow them to get off to a nice start at Detroit home against the giants at Atlanta home against the colds short week at home against Tampa Thursday night at Carolina. Maybe the worst team in the NFL feels like four and two is a very reasonable expectation to start the season. If not maybe five and one I I love their over and I and I see USA. Today say three and thirteen. I say my Guy See My Guy Matt Miller at bleacher report to a power rankings and having those the thirty first best team in the NFL like. That's just such an overreaction to a fairly pedestrian off season because of salary cap constraints like this is still a really good team. I don't know about you guys going. I believe you have a top five defense. It's really hard to be six windsor worse in the NFL. You're going to be in damn near every game so I lean over but I think we're the value actually is is. If you get better you can get better than three to one For the NFC north. Like it's just. So jumbled up packers dysfunction didn't add much this off season Vikings seem to be static. Lions of Lions I. I think there's value in the bears in the NFC north. And I also lean over them and that's not a whole or pick. I'll pick under in bet against the bears multiple times during the season. I'm not I'm not a homer with them like that. I just followed them closely so I just think there's been a little bit of an overreaction in the market to their off-season what we're going to have to completely disagree on our bears because I did go to school in Chicago so it'd be one of my teams. I got to come back to three games last year. You can make great points about. The bears being slightly improved from last year. Obviously foles upgrade over trubisky lease. It's obvious to me. But here's the problem. The bears didn't go eight nate last year. The bears went six ten. Let me make my case. Bears had three games to against Detroit. WanNa Minnesota that. Don't count like normal games. Because they played the lions twice in the second. Half of the season and driscoll started and blouse started. The much despised Blau. If you go back and watch those games you'll see the bears. Were awful. The bears barely beat those backup quarterbacks on a bad Detroit team that did not win a game and the with with those quarterbacks all year long and then week seventeen. The Vikings gift wrapped it a win when they rested their starters and manion started and the bears won. I think by two points so in those three games. I'M GONNA be generous and I'M GONNA go ahead and say hey you know what if Stafford was starting and if Cousins was starting to give the bears a win. The bears are six and ten team last year. And that's why the wise guys hate the bears and they're playing them under because they know that that eight has complete asterisk by their stunk last year. Yeah they'll be a little bit better this year and so there'll be a little bit of a better team with but they'll have a worse record in my opinion and that's that's reasonable. I just feel like when we start doing that and going you know week by week game by game and picking out you know they the cowboys last year. People have the cowboys as a super bowl contender. This year. You could go through. You can pick situations for each spot and I hear you're saying the joke around here is that Mitch. Trubisky is going to start week one because the only team he can beat is Detroit and then they're going to go to nick foles right. Yeah that three hundred forty yard game against them in the second game against the Lions last year. So it's absolutely true. Debated not be a bunch of playoff quarterbacks and a bunch of playoff teams last year but they also were at twelve win team the year before it is twenty wins in two years. And what isn't there like about the defense so you could say they lost prince AMUKAMARA and so they're inexperienced that you know number two and number three quarter which is totally valid but that defense is real and there aren't many real defenses in the NFL. And I just think when Akiem Hicks was there In two thousand eighteen Khalil. Mack was a top three defensive player in football and last year his production plummeted because he had absolutely no help and teams were just running away from him rolling away from in the throw one two three step drops doing everything they could to neutralize Khalil. Mack and so then no pass rush leads the no turnovers. No help on the other side. Who's the no production from Khalil? Mack and it was just this the spiral effect. I'm not I'm not sitting here telling you the bears world beaters but I don't think there's many defenses in the NFL. It's like that. That's what I'd hang my hat on. I am what is interesting? Is You referenced? The twelve and four from two years ago but you following the bears an aberration. That is the total cupcake scheduled. Nobody got hurt and they were like plus twenty and turnover so everything went right. That was a nine and seventeen so the bears in my eyes. What were the record? Two years ago one nine and seven last year they went Six and ten that's valuations and that's why I'm so soured on the bears will say I am a believer in that More so than the market seems to be so than most bears fans seem to be I. I've seen this system take a team. That had no touchdown passes season to a wide receiver. Which is what happened in Kansas City to Alex Smith? Playing the system taking over that team that season four years later he's number one in the NFL in passer rating on depot. Alex Smith but check down Charlie that guy. We saw it with Nick foles in the playoffs. Doug Peterson we saw it was Carson Wentz before he got hurt when he's not to be an MVP This obviously we saw Pat. Mahomes can do when you actually put an elite talent into the system This offense works. It's run right. It is sophisticated. It's complicated and Mitch. Trubisky was not able to handle it. So Matt Nagy had to dumb it down and if they were playing the lions one week in the Vikings the next week it was not an entirely new game plan week by week where it was team specific whereas like okay weekend this week. We're going to be able to target the middle linebacker and this week we're GONNA target Corner and we're going to completely scrapped the game plan because we WANNA put in seventy glades for this vikings game that we wanna put it in sixty new plays for the for the week against the Lions Mitch. Trubisky was just mentally not able to handle it period full stop and I believe Nick foles will so I think the Matt Nagy was coaching With his hands tied the last couple of years offensively. I'm not sitting here saying this is GonNa be a tough offense with Nick foles far from it but I do think that Matt Nagy will be able to finally maximize whatever this offense can be simply by having a guy who knows his offense. Well we're not going to be decided here today but I tell you what after Costas couple weeks ago and you Danny Now. The bears become one of the teams. We are GONNA have on our radar this season to see who's right and who is wrong. Danny thanks so much coming on the show again you can check them out in the afternoons on six seventy to score in. Chicago you can check him out on twitter like I don't at Danny Park in on twitter. Thank you Danny. Thank you thank you as appreciate you guys having me on and by the way. I hope I'm wrong and we get uninterrupted sports for the rest of the time. Obviously it's not what I'm rooting for is just what I'm fearing no we. We appreciate the honesty. That's why we had John.

"Then sports are going to get interrupted like that's that's my gut feeling on. This is that there will be a push to try. It will not be out of various motive in some case. It'll be profit motivated. That's okay that's what makes the world go round where capitalist country. There's nothing wrong with trying to make money. But the doctors seemed to say there's going to be a second wave of this thing and the doctors do not seem to be advising As many of these lacks protocols are happening. So my guess is that will be a push to return to normalcy. For political reasons for monetary reasons for morale reasons we will backslide. And then there's going to be an interruption in live sports. That's my guess as to where we're going right now but again it's just. It's an educated. Guess from reading watching the news we've a director of infectious diseases from one of the hospitals here in Cook. County Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and Cook County has been number one The most number of Covid nineteen cases of any county in the country. Chicago's been hit very hard by this. He's been on the show basically every week since this pandemic started Dr Robert Citron Bird. So it's it's not this isn't fearmongering. This isn't rooting against sports. I'd like to think that it's based on some semblance of reality. I don't love that answer but that's how I'm feeling today. Wow that's that's really that's really interesting any and I guess my other question since. This is a sports betting podcast would be. What IF ANYTHING. Have you been betting on like? Have you been betting on? Have you started to bet on the Bundesliga or UNC? Or somebody other things that are going on. I bet you have see casually So that if I'm watching the card right eye gal the Tony Ferguson. Fight for example. The I'm a pretty casual. You have see fan but I do really enjoy it. I probably will do something for The match with Tiger Phil and Brady in Peyton just for fun. But those aren't like areas of expertise rights. I have no degree of seriousness to the definition of recreational gambling. I'm playing a lot or poker since this is started like. That's not a scratch. My gambling engine. I was in college when Party poker and poker stars were blowing up and the online poker. Boom you know black Friday happened and all that so it's actually been really fun for me to kind of get back into poker. I used to play a ton and that went to Syracuse. And there was an eighteen year olds casino turning stone. Just forty minutes away with a thirty card table live poker room. So that's kind of been where I've been scratching that recreational Gambling H but I also since that's my belief on corona virus. I haven't found myself interested in tying up any capital in the term sports bets right now because if you make a bet on an NFL season win total right now and you put whatever it is whatever you bet five hundred bucks two hundred Bucks Thousand Bucks Fifty Bucks. Whatever you bet. They're going to have to do something if they don't play sixteen games of an NFL season and my guess is they're going to refund all of that action. So why would I want to tie up all that money right now of so of course when when football and baseball and the NBA playoffs come back? Of course I will be betting those games and those series but I I am a little less likely right now to make serious investment in a season long Over under win total than I normally would be what. You're selling my favorite bets. Because I'm just I'm not convinced that we're getting sixteen. Nfl Games this year. That's an interesting really interesting thought. What about like some of these mad in simulation things so like bet online right bet online has odds so better lines one on the sponsors of this show they have odds for each game? They're doing madden simulations. Every night this week tonight like six o'clock it's patriots. Rams eight o'clock Tom Brady. And the Bucks. Against Steve's Las Vegas Raiders and they have odds that you can bet on these games I you know. I'm just curious your your opinion on betting on these on these bet online. Look I love bet online but in particular and people can try it out no matter what you say but have you done anything else on any of these Madden Simulations. I personally haven't you know I love it like I think that this is. Here's the thing. I need to really tough time for sports gambling right now. This is sports gambling podcasts Sports gambling went legal in Illinois right. Before March Madness I partnered up with rivers casino to do the endorsements on the score for their sports book and they were able to take like bats for dates not even weeks and then it all closed down. But I think what's going to happen is this is going to be the proverbial like one step back for three steps forward type of situation because so many states are going through so many Economic hardships right now. The states that were on the or maybe sixty forty no for legalizing sports gambling. But when it comes back they're going to be looking for that windfall and that revenues so I think the twenty twenty one twenty twenty two twenty. Twenty three are going to be massive sports gambling years and so in terms of legalization and it might even get to a place on depending on how the election goes when We could see it even federally legal. So I I would be thinking about investing in you know like ten gaming stock or things like that so me personally like that's where I've taken my investor rain a little bit more until like by it and hold it like sports gambling. We'll come back as opposed to trying to handicap madden simulations like that but I I don't begrudge anybody for doing it and I love the creativity and ingenuity and east force is real and all that stuff like. It's just not my particular area of interest but Sports gambling is absolutely not going away and I think it will come back bigger than it's ever been Within whatever whenever this ends within six to eighteen months after that I think that's going to be mentioned boom of online poker back when I was freshman sophomore in college. I think that's actually going to be when the boom for sports gambling really takes off interesting. Now what about? I know one thing you guys both wanted to talk about was home. Field advantage and Steve. Danny talk a bunch so you start with what you think in particular in football but just in general home field advantage is going to be worth in particular in the NFL. And before I get to that. I want to clarify a couple of points. I don't understand the whole madden simulation betting because correct me. If I'm wrong whoever has mad and can just run this fifty thousand times so they already know what the predetermined correct answer is for what the spread should be. So how in the world can you beat something where someone already knows the answer right? Ross they meds I guess I guess so. I could lay my one on one and couldn't beat them because they know the answer already. So I can't do that. I WANNA say poker. I'm an avid poker player as well and if you're a serious poker playing you study and you play against players. That aren't very good. Like they would be the case pretty much. I would imagine in the entire state of Illinois. I'd be shocked if there were tough. Poker Games. You will what I guarantee you a win if you don't win you're not studying hard enough. It's just not that hard. If you're playing in Bobby's room and the Blasi Oh okay now. You're going to have to study a whole lot more so just play against bad players. I guarantee if you study hard play well you will win. Let's get the home field advantage pretty much across the board. I'M GONNA assume about a one and a half to two point homefield advantage this year and this assumes no fans in the stands and so it's GonNa take away from the teams that historically have had really big home advantage is mostly because of crowd noise New Orleans Minnesota Seattle. I do think the one exception to the rule will be Green Bay. Green Bay has a very strange grasp field that I believe is to their advantage. And they're big homefield advantage. It's not from the crowd noise but rather from that field. Conversely there's teams that have absolutely horrific homefield manages Washington Jacksonville Obviously the Los Angeles chargers those teams that would greatly benefit from no fans. If you're chargers player having an empty stadium would be a welcome sight versus all the opposing fans taking over your stadium and you getting on your home stadium so one and a half to two points for home field. Pretty much across the board with a few exceptions. Yeah I I agree and I also why I'm just interested in it is like you don't show it'll go to show how much crowd noise factors in to the strategy of things right like I. I'm thinking about superdome and New Orleans in this like epic noise and it's such a tough place to play in the superdome in prime time and like everything that you say about it well with no fans in theory it goes from the place in the NFL to one of the best places in the NFL. Because you get teams that every team would prefer. I in theory to play in. Dome Rightly so. I'm thinking about weeks three. I'm thinking about you know packers at saints it. You know you just had mentioned the field. Lambeau well now you get to play on a fast track if you want it. And the packers. Don't have the greatest group of of skill position guys. That's been well documented but talking about like a difference and playing on that field at Lambeau and playing an adult at the superdome and now not only do you get the ideal conditions but you get the removal of the crowd noise and so Aaron Rodgers can do anything that he would normally be able to do at home or at practise. At the line of scrimmage. Just what does that change like? I I you know you talk to these two coaches of quarterbacks and they talk about like how much more difficult game planning is for road games with crowd noise enhancing those in chat with me at the line and all of those that all goes out the window now that no one's going to be worried about how it's going to be in the stadium does does that. Make Guy. I've got more questions about this than I do answers. I agree like instead of the standard three points. It gets TR- Track down one and a half to something like that. But does this make it easier for young or rookie quarterback's to be successful early so like I'm thinking of a Guy Kyle Murray? A guy like drew lock guys who normally would have like drew. Lock going into Arrowhead Right. That's A. That's a tough spot but is it not. It's not going to be nearly as tough for him. So does that get over corrected in the Wind Movement Kyle going to Seattle put like things like that. Where normally you'd say. Oh man that's that's a really tough spot for a young second year guy to to go in and win but now that that crowd noise has been removed. I wonder people's biases will still be Kyla Marie in Seattle. He should be a significant underdog whereas now he's going to be able to do anything he wants in terms of running the same offense and so. I don't exactly know but I feel like after the first couple of weeks of it will be able to get a pretty good grasp on how different it is for offense. Playcalling the irony of through lock had to go to Arrowhead last year and they Snowstorm hit so. It wasn't the crowd but it was the conditions that absolutely destroyed him I do think. Obviously you're familiar with your own sight lines. That's an advantage still Playing in your own stadium you get to. You've got the familiarity. I don't know if these home teams are going to be staying in their home hotel or whether they actually might players might actually stay at home this year. Nevertheless it's an advantage versus the road team having to do the travel so they're still elements of the homefield. That will be there. But the great point that you would certainly expect quarterbacks that tend to get rattled And that usually means younger quarterbacks. It's difficult with that crowd noise so it probably will be more of a benefit to the inexperienced quarterbacks and one last thing that I wanted to get from you Danny is about the bears. I mean you cover. This team is closely as anybody. You're there you know what what's your read because I know like our buddy. Nick Kostis likes the bears. He certainly likes them more than I think. That's defecit can I do? What's your read on your.

"Sunday edition with Nick. Kosto came on a week or two ago as well as Danny Parkin. Who is the afternoon drive? Guy On six seventy to score in Chicago highly. Encourage you to check him out on twitter at Danny Perkins so he's all over the barriers in the NFC north. But he's over gambling as well which makes him the perfect guest today. Danny thank you so much for coming on the show. Ross I appreciate you pretending like you. Follow me on twitter. Thank you for the invitation. Well this is a point of contention. No I don't follow you on twitter but I'm aware that you're on twitter. I know your twitter handle you. Look you're you're a Chicago radio host which is a gigantic market. You kick some serious butt but like a lot of your tweets or Chicago. I just I don't care that's fair right short. It's fair but I just. I'm aware that he's on twitter. Yeah I decided to do this really unconventional things. Sports Media and join twitter. So I I I appreciate the plug you just you just said it with this degree of familiarity. You had any idea what I was tweeting about so I appreciate it and I just felt like I need to call out just like recapture the spirit of you better. You Bet. Hey I am okay with it. I'm fine with that and I'm glad you brought that up Danny. Because Steve Danny is the number one non believer that. I'm aware of every week last year. I would go on this Sunday. Edition of you better. You Bet on the radio DOT COM APP and Danny refused to believe how well I did last season. And frankly how well I've done overall since we've started this show now twenty. Eighteen was not great for me and I don't remember I think twenty seventeen was actually really good to can't remember two thousand sixteen in Fifteen. But Danny Steve does not understand or believe that. I am the football betting superstar that I am. So can you please enlighten him? As the only two time winner of the super contest in the at the West Gate Casino the Super Bowl professional football gambling. Can you please enlighten Danny Steve? With what I've done on this show over the years. Yeah and we're working on the actual documentation but We I don't think any show has done as well as we have as far as picking winners but as far as the bigger picture Is a part of a big part of the population that does not believe with good reason? And here's why everybody is gambling. Hey they wouldn't have those lights in those chandeliers if everyone didn't lose and and the feeling amongst the countries that gambling is impossible to win a lot of people still feel that and the best evidence I can give that. It is certainly viable and that people do win at bringing this up. All the time all need to do is call over to William Hill. One of the major books here in Las Vegas. Ask Them How many people. They've kicked out of their sportsbook twenty years ago. No one did this now. The sharp sports bettors are very much like blackjack advantage players card counters. People get kicked out all the time I tell people. If you don't believe come to Vegas I can get. You denied bets within half an hour of your arrival in Vegas. Anyone wants to take me up on it. after the CON- country reopened. Let me know. I absolutely have come to the window. And they'll say well we can't take these bets it's Just a reality that advantage players do have the edge in sports betting and BLACKJACK wait a minute. I feel like I am be. I'm being misrepresented here. I never once questioned Whether or not you have been a Wittig sports get what I question weather. Ross Tucker who said in like week eight that he was up twenty eight bulbous units with no documentation of these bets questioned whether or not Ross Tucker is being denied access to bedding at the West Gate in Los Beverly. Pill does have the bird. Man Who independently is tracking all of his results and his picks so he's Got Independent. Monitor. I'll say this. Ross is a diamond in the rough. He's still learning example. When Ross was actually doing a game I believe in buffalo when unexpected snowstorm hit and there was like five inches of snow right before the game started. I'm still waiting for the text from him telling me to play the under Danny. I don't know what happened exactly exactly. And then and then he dropped this dime on us. One time Early on in the season when he said you know I think I've developed a system. Where if I think an underdog is going to win. The game outright. I'm going to bet them up. That's a that's a good idea. Like let me get a pen and paper and write that Elliott Jesse Eisenberg and the social network like hold on. Just checking your math on that. Yup I get the same technology here on our pod. Yes so I need to jump in here okay. This is amazing so so first of all Steve. You have to admit most of my bets that win are underdogs that I mean. So Danny if I mean Steven one hundred bets. How many of them do you think? I'm getting the points. Eighty eighty out of probably. I would have said Right around three-quarters yes like I take the points I think honestly Danny my my best strength so far has been. I have a pretty decent fuel for when underdogs are going to win now. Look I was in the red in twenty eighteen. So it's not like I'm like you know this way I'm not about to do what fezzet did and quit all my jobs and drive out to Vegas and do this as like my fulltime job. I'm not going to do that but I had a very good year last year and I had a very good twenty six and we actually have our guy that grades US Danny He's working on it. Steve He is going to go back the history of the show. He really only needs to remember the spreadsheet from the last show of each year. That says what we were for the NFL season each year. And I think it'll end up being a really healthy number but I want to go back to something you said. The I'm confused on so first of all. How is it legal for the sports books to not take your bets or the of other sharp like? How is that even legal? You're not card counting your placing a bet. It's in many ways exactly the same thing that if you if you have a casino you have the right to deny anyone as long as long as you don't violate any state local rules for you. Say you don't like tall people or short people You don't have to take You don't have to allow any select person to play with you that you don't want them to play And it really blackjack. Players Card counters have an advantage and so do advantage. Sports bettors now the big difference. Is that if you tell Steve. He can't play in your sportsbook. Hey It's easy enough for me to like you know what I got friends I. I'll show there's no hard feelings and I'll just recommend every single one of them descend upon you and make bets like that so it's not like a blackjack player could just send another card counter in And and do it for him make identical place so that is a big differentiation. So then what do you do like? How many do you get denied from? How many do you not get tonight from the CAT and mouse game? So essentially what the sharp books do is they just. Don't extend any kind of large limits to me and they say I'll give an example. The win is super friendly to me but they give me lower limits. But they'll never deny me they let me bet it but when the normal limit on bet might be a thousand dollars they'll say hey you can have five hundred on that and I'm betting for myself. I'm not betting first syndicate and it's enough to have me keep betting at the win and they get information on what I'm playing so that really is the It's optimal maybe for both players. Because they're getting information. And what good would it do them to tell me? You can't play it all and I'll be honest I would just have a cohort. Why making wagers for me and be part of his team. If that was the case like that seems like get around you anytime soon buddy. So Danny I want to start with with this. Just sort of your. You're feeling right now about what's going on with sports when you think that they'll come back just kind of your your read on things right now. So it's so complicated and I think there's like the emotional and then there's the rational and that's what we try to balance with like how we deal with our family how we deal with investing how we deal with anything right. I would you politics what we do with analysis like everybody on the emotional side. We all want sports to come back. That's obvious it would be good for morale. It would be good for business. It would be good for entertainment. It would be good for relationships like it'd be nice to have something to watch every night at seven o'clock central right The rational side of this when you follow any of these stories is man. This is complicated and when you see the UFC pull off an event even with a positive tasks or two or three. Wow that's really encouraging but then you remember that all of the UFC fighters don't have to fly to the event in the same plane or they all stay at the same hotel or being though same locker room with their opponents and the same thing with golf right so some of these sports can come back easier and easier and easier of than others but then when you look at something like Major League Baseball and you see this document that they're talking about and they're saying players can't Uber or take taxis to the stadium. They would recommend no spitting they would recommend social distancing by sitting in the stands instead of the dugout during games and they wouldn't want the players to shower at the stadium afterwards like at some point not even mentioning see part of it. The players are going to. What are we doing here? It's too many hoops to jump through. When as soon as I stepped into the batter's box within sixty to the catcher and as soon as I get on first base and he's holding the runner. I'm within six feet of him. Like it just team sports. It becomes so much more complicated and then that's not even to mention college football and college sports which to me. I always thought it was going to be the most complicated of this. Because how you good faith. Make the argument that a student athlete could play college if it wasn't safe for students to go on campus and while some campuses like Notre Dame the other day that they're going to move up the fall semester and open early others are still saying that campuses might not open at all and that the fall semester might need to happen online. And so what do you do for travel? What do you do out of conference games? What do you do with one? St Allows kids on campus and another dozen public. The pride it and if any of these colleges are going to make the argument that college students need to play football but Womens soccer gets cancelled or the biology students. Don't don't need to be on. Campus will then. How do you not make the argument that they are employees and you need to be paying them in compensating them and so I just think that way one question gets answered? Three more questions come up would does seem to be happening is that they're gonNA try and my guess is what happens and this is just how. I feel you know may twentieth. My guess is July August September. We're going have sports.

"Ritter Oregon sits about two hundred seventy three miles southeast of Portland Oregon near the Mattila national forest the allocation of Ridder's about two thousand five hundred forty nine feet so it's not too high above sea level relative to the area around it. It is an unincorporated town which might denote that means Very few people live there. That is the case but so few people live there that there is no post office out. There has to be a post office in your town. I did not know that but I did read that. At one point Ritter did have a post office but then they lost it so the the climate of ritter a cold this month or December and January as you'd expect when the nighttime temperatures average about twenty degrees Fahrenheit the warmest months July and August where the daytime temps reach about eighty eight Fahrenheit so very typical north western atmosphere dry throughout most of the year. Not Too much going on. In the terrain and the Mattila National Forest is the Blue Mountains of northeast Oregon in Southeast Washington and cover an area of one point. Four million acres some interesting facts about the forest the explorers. Lewis and Clark Pass through the area in eighteen. Five and thousands of emigrants would later follow the Oregon trail west with many of them remaining in the Blue Mountain region. Everybody who played Oregon trail during up a if you died and never made it to the end. This is where you would have gone. Yep this is this is where you win. If you didn't die of dysentery. So in eighteen fifty one gold was discovered in the region and by the end of the gold boom over ten million dollars in gold and silver were mined from the area so that's ten million dollars in eighteen fifty one slash significant section of the area where people actually made money remnants of the goal boom are still visible today in the national forests. There are even some active claims. Still getting mind. So there's a lot of golden this area. Yeah in one thing to mention about. The climate of the area is Like Joe said it's typically pretty dry but actually twenty nineteen was one of the wettest years they had on record. Oh Wow yeah the head. Almost forty two inches of rain in two hundred five inches of snow. Which if you go and look at their average is way way way above what they normally average in the area so Yeah they had a really white year No no reason why that could read but just interesting. That's awesome. That's a lot of snow. Yeah that's a ton of snow so just a game idea. The animals that are in the area Moose bighorn sheep black bear mountain goats mule deer whitetail deer timber. Wolves cougars coyotes. So a lot of big game and we don't see that in a lot of areas we follow out there. It's healthy lauch. Lots of vegetation. So you get some big game indefinitely a couple of animals that I would worry about if I had small children hiking with absolutely obviously wolves and cougars and obviously black bears. Are you know I'm less worried about black versus a grisly? But there's still a large predatory animal especially if you're young young child up by yourself. Yeah so twenty through. Twenty percent of the forest is actually designated as a wilderness zone and areas generally rugged and mountainous the peaks in the area approaching nine thousand feet. So you don't really have stuff going above tree line but you still have altitude as a factor so I just want to. People might be wondering why we're talking about this national forest. When the case happened in Ritter Ritter is private property. But it's near this forest so this this forest is a good representation of the terrain and climate that Keith would have encountered in Ritter. It's it gives you an idea. I think people could imagine just. They've always seen pictures of Lush Oregon forests. Yeah so I mean that's kind of what what comes to mind when I think of it. As far as exposure goes with areas that are coaching nine thousand feet and some of the areas and possibly obviously especially in two thousand nine thousand nine heavy rain. Snow exposure is definitely a potential risk or concern in that area at lack of shelter. I don't know with much. The areas designated wilderness. And it's all below treeline. You're not going to run into like actual built shelters. But it's not like you're completely exposed all the time that all the time did look up. You know obviously treeline changes depending on where you are. If you're like trees growing yeah so in Oregon area you kind of start to see trees disappear around the sixty five hundred to seven thousand feet so okay. Yeah so depending on what you may be above the tree line. So I'll and that does change. I know in Colorado. It's much higher. Yeah it's like almost eleven thousand feet in the rockies. Yeah and even when we are in Mount Rainier. It was near nine thousand feet. Was the tree line there. So it really varies depending on where you're at that's crazy. I KINDA WANNA know I wanNA know more about it. I'M GONNA learn about that when we get off of here to find out what that's significant difference because there's like when you get up to like ten thousand five hundred feet in Colorado. You start getting those. The full growth of the tree is like three feet tall. You get those little. And that's as big as they'll get but that's like three thousand feet higher up than this is I imagine it has to do probably something with the amount of rain they get rain or if it's like battered with wind in something just can't stay up at that altitude. Maybe I know this area and Oregon is dryer so I have a feeling that probably plays a role in the treeline I know Colorado you know gets a lot more precipitation Mike. I have a theory that the Russians might be happy with. I wonder if they're getting those mountain hurricanes right. That is an episode for a topic for another episode for those of you. That think I'm crazy. I'm not it's the Russian government. That's crazy when we did our past episode. One of the theories mentioned as to why the group went missing. Was that a hurricane. Got Them in the mountains. Yes Oh so if you want to hear some crazy theories including mountain hurricanes listen to our ideas love episode and that is how you plug your own podcast in your own podcast episode. So I'll move on so he gone so difficulty. In general it's a heavily wooded Alpine mountainous area. So it's going to be typically high if you're out hiking especially because when it's designated wilderness that means unmanaged basically it's kind of like bureau of land management stuff. It's wild yes while there might be some trails but you're like more game trails or trails that people are making but there's no rangers. There's none of that stuff going on like you'd see National Park. I looked up the trails in the national forest. Talking about most of the trails were moderate to high levels of difficulty. You can just picture a lot of ups and downs. The trails are probably not well-maintained so kind of rugged Likely said not a lot of shelter. So it's it's not. It's not going to be one of your major national parks where you where. There's well-defined flat trails. You can you'll end up in a nice place where they're probably selling some water and food. There's no services here it's yes raw wilderness. So yeah all right. So let's talk about Keith Parkin's when Keith disappeared. He's two and a half and his age. Now he's in his mid sixties so back then body height weight everything typical two year old. Yeah so he was last seen at the time of his disappearance and a hat coat and shoes and personality. According to his mom at the time of his disappearance he was a very happy child. He didn't have any medical issues. He had very little experience in the wilderness. Other than he lived in this heavily wooded area kind of like the farm type suburb area. So it's not a city boy so he's used to the outdoors type stuff but you the two year old so it's not gonna it's not gonna be the what he's doing out there. The main actors in this story are GonNa be Adina. Which is Keith's MOM Allen which keeps father and then we have some information from Les Stroud who? We've talked about him a couple times this podcasts. He's a survival expert. That talks about these issues a lot. We'll talk about some of the comments. He made about this case and missing people in general at the end of this episode but he brings up a lot of really interesting kind of strange. Things are going on. Know what I really like about doing. This show is even though. There's some repetitive stuff. I really feel like in each case. I kind of learned something. Each case. I'll I'll hear something. It makes me think differently about my previously held beliefs about search and rescue for say or what can happen to people out there so. I really enjoy doing this. Tough and continually hearing from people like less. So let's go to the time. Line man the timeline. Here I just want to let everyone know that this episode is going to be a shorter episode. The timelines pretty thin. It was longtime ago and I won't spoil. It happens at the end. It's more about what happened in between in the middle of the story. That is really the mysterious part about this so obviously we said it all started on April tenth. Nineteen fifty two. So you know. Today's April fifteenth. So you know close to this time here. Around Easter it was twelve PM. Lunchtime and Edna Edna. I've probably got that wrong Allen Keith. And his two older brothers revisiting.
Ellen Parkin MS on Cannabis Testing, Trouble with Edibles, Working with Labs
"Everybody. This is Jason Wilson with the curious about canvas podcast. Thanks so much for tuning in once again Today I'm sitting down with a friend of mine and fellow Quality Nerd and Analytical Scientist Ellen. Parkyn Ellen thanks so much for being willing to sit down with me today yeah. I'm very excited about this. This is great. Yeah totally So for some of you. That might not know Ellen. Ellen's been working for the past. I don't know how many years now working in the canvas testing space like five years or four years or so four now yeah and We have somewhat similar experiences in the cannabis testing fields. In that. We've done a little bit of everything as far as we've been the the analytical technicians the analyst quality director we've done every every piece of it So we have a lot in common in that regard worn many Uma exactly Ellen de mind just to get US started here. Kinda describe a little bit about your background and Kind of how? You came to work in the canvas testing space specifically and then where some of your work is Kinda focused as of lately. Yeah of course I actually I started out In the beer industry I have my master's degree in doing science and I was seeing a lot of work on hot chemistry and Started working in the beer industry And just some life changes Hadn't he turned towards cannabis? I found myself working As a lab technician and a little startup laboratory here in Oregon and Ever since it's been a great Change in my career There's so much more opportunity for Research and Career Development and growth and the industry is just so fascinating until news that I think it's been really great Just as a part of my career I've we're kind of looking for what I wanted to do And as I worked my way up from being allowed tech And then doing more call you work and then into a bigger space of Laboratory director and Quality Assurance Officer. I kind of found my niche. I'm really enjoy doing. Also quality specialist where and Kind of helping people understand the regulations and helping people understand what is and what kind of computer people And so that's kind of been a really big part for me as well as trying to with the part of the community as well. The industry that I came from before that your industry had a lot of connections and a lot of Immunity ORIENTED EVENTS AND WITH CANVAS. That wasn't as prevalent and so with the nonprofit profit that I work with Cafe Canvas Association We do a lot of work to bring everybody together Both for like social events like we recently had Nfl where Several local breweries donated. Fear we got together there were trucks. It was super finds And then like next month. We're going to be having like an educational so I think that I think really been Been great for for the face. Yeah answer you doing Some Educational Work. Through that nonprofit. Yeah Yeah so We try to do at least one educational event year Just trying to get people are more interested in the aspect right now but I think as people who are not growers producers get involved in the kind of things They're gonNA want to know more about like. What is this plant? What do what are what is going to have to test for fifty nine pesticides? What are these things So in our attempts to you educational things We try to have like one event a year and Hugh It's Kinda like Ted talks to get different people me and we kinda talk about similar subjects And try to get people involved in that and Get people talking about it. Yeah that's cool trying to spark good conversations and drive The sort of consciousness industry a little further sounds great walkway. Yeah And in some and I know we're sort of taking attention from the camps testing stuff but I'm as an educator also really interested in this too In some of the educational work that you're doing now you said right now it's primarily a lot of industry folks that are involved so do they have was sort of questions are they kind of wanting answers to That you're kind of getting confronted with a lot of data about the regulatory face at Mike. What's allowed yeah? That's always like why do we have this regulation? Could we change it? And so yeah we're political aspects to it right now and I think With with him coming into play as much as it has in the past year I think a lot of people are going to be a lot more interested in Understanding US MINOR CANAVERAL. What we're seeing some and holiday interact with the body and how they can help people As well as You know a lot of people are still just really interested in like. How do I get into the industry and so I hear yeah? Yeah so We're taking with this. Next educational event were taking a deep dive and Talking about genetic. Wow Oh it should be really great. We're going to have a panel. We're GONNA have a couple of cool And actually one of the people that I'm most excited about. He's actually a lawyer here in town and she's GonNa talk about Intellectual Property and genetics. And how those interact but very cool. Yeah that's that's something that's been on my mind a lot lately especially with all the controversy around. Filo in all the different stuff that's been going on as a lot of people hit me with questions about that. That's just a realm of things. I just don't know much about as far as what you can patent which you can't what. The implications are for sharing genetics. All this sort of stuff and it's beyond me. Yeah this is GonNa be interesting to see how all of this plays out. Because I think people are going to try to patent for Internet exchange and then it's like how you as number one of state governing body kind of fat intake and then number like as the person who has that patent or a person who want those medic. How do you interact in that space without being like US remind? You can't have them And I think he's GonNa get a little wild. I think I don't know how to say but it's GONNA be Very different and especially with like how everything else with cannabis industry is Kinda come about. It's like it's a lot of trial and error of like right right. And if they don't then let's go back and figure out what's the next step so there's GonNa be a lot of that I just hope that you know people. Don't get hurt people on you know it's Kinda thing.

"Interactive me on Twitter at so many of you are doing some even about Carmelo Anthony at Danny Parkins on Twitter eight five five two one two four two two seven mellow says he loves the game of basketball doesn't know if it loves him back looks like he might be done as a basketball player so I try to figure out why there's so much mellow hate and slander wed league in scoring ten time all star six time all NBA three time gold medalist NC double a champion went to the playoffs his first ten years consecutively in the NBA went to a nuggets team that won seventeen games the year before he got there they won forty three his first year went to a Knicks team that won twenty nine games the year before he got there one forty two games the first year he got their loss to the spurs twice the Lakers twice on lebron once in the playoffs more all time points than Dwyane Wade Allen Iverson and Jerry west that's a first ballot hall of Famer that's an NBA legend that's one of the greatest scores in the history of the sport and people want to say mellow is a disappointment it makes no sense is he perfect for the modern NBA no but he's a product of his era two thousand and three to two thousand and twelve before the twenty thirteen spurs started to begin the three point revolution yeah Carmelo Anthony was the second best scorer in the NBA for a decade behind Kobe Bryant and people want to say is not an all time great it's way easy to me let's see here let's stay in Chicago my home town Patrick you're on the Danny parking show what's up man Hey what's up buddy John man how are you pretty good just driving home I want to talk to you about it because I agree with you for the most part deathly hall of Famer death I don't understand the hate but I don't think so but you don't think what all right looks like he was gonna was like he was gone sounds like you didn't think he was gonna be a hall of Famer but I'll let someone else make that point before I respond Richard in Miami you're on CBS sports radio what's up man yeah I was born here mine and went to mostly he came since eighty seven or eighty eight one thing a year we got it in so I solved one way our guys play defense man he never played defense he never played here must meet James harden in that way he doesn't like the first if you don't want the phone if you brought back guys from the sixties and seventies some opposite him everybody played defense for the most part hardly anybody just what one one eight eight they'll play hard when we used to run around for ball one is on his knees and hurt himself that's why he's also player he pointed longer the mellow because Bosch lebron and Wade all three he says that's why we didn't want him we never wanted melons down because he doesn't fit the heat both for wouldn't know what to do with them because I think he's lazy number one I believe I have a question how do you become the twenty second all time leading scorer in NBA history by being lazy I because that's the only reason that the place because you know all he did was he a top twenty five score in the history of the league in you're dismissing that you're not old enough you can see the doctor but I saw the doctor plane is prime when I was four it doesn't matter what age you man this is a little bit it was a it was an eighty two game season then Carmelo Anthony scored more points than everybody who ever played professional basketball except twenty one individuals and you know what James harden by the way also going to be a hall of Famer it's not that hard to make the basketball hall of fame gonna be hall of Famers but it's easy to score when you never plays decide you're not waste any energy of the sun that's what I don't like about him I never wanted him on our team are you kidding me I mean that's that's that's you don't play defense and and to me real basketball the doctor play defense and that was forty some years ago everybody that to me that's a great player all play do you there's not that many also called me please he sent come on you know I mean I I agree that coat Kobe was a better defensive player than Carmelo Anthony there were players were better defensive players and Carmelo Anthony though on team USA he actually did play pretty good defense attorneys the only score on a team it's tough to go both ways your saying he's not lebron and he's not Dr J. and he's not Colby yeah I'm in agreement with you but those guys are white lebron best or second best player ever Colby somewhere between nine and twelve plus wherever Dr J. probably somewhere in the early team's best player ever yeah okay Carmelo Anthony is one of the fifteen greatest players in the history of the sport but he's one of the forty everyone analogy that that somewhere this people today on the walk of fame in LA get get stars on the walk of fame for spending money they they they didn't deserve it hardly anybody in the last fifteen twenty years since they started doing movies or however old they are people don't deserve it they pay a certain way to get a start has nothing to do with with how good they are and that reminds me Carmelo he's just another big score big deal he just he's nobody special he never was what is it I mean it but even if you do you read you realize what you're saying you're you're saying a guy who made all NBA six times is nobody special is here today to do those kind of things that it was why there were there's fifteen people who make all NBA there's fifteen people make it first second thirteen five five and five it's been that way since time forever I'm just saying the standards have been lowered in sports in the last fifteen twenty years man if I bye bye hi whoever votes I'm telling you it's not the same sports sports explores the mere easier people get away with so you're you're basically back in my day my generation was the best in everything that's new is bad well I'm not saying that I'm just saying I think you're saying sports are easier in the last fifteen years I just think people are lazy or these days they don't for the money they make they don't put out like people used to in the seventy now it's about the money okay listed in their list I appreciate your call that is what I'm talking about that is great a hate him yeah Carmel merry me two hundred and thirty two million dollars as an NBA player Dr J. didn't if doctor Jay was born later he would have made that money hello is a product of his time in terms of money don't hate the player hate the game that's innings same criticism of him old Carmelo's not Kobe Carmelo's not lebron Carmelo's not Dr J. am's he's one of the forty greatest basketball players in the history of the sport he won in college he made the playoffs ten times in a row on too bad franchises to start his NBA career and he was a winner internationally and he was at all times score that's a hell of a legacy that's a first ballot hall of Famer legacy let's go to Minnesota Jacob thanks for calling the show when it comes to Carmelo I I love Carmelo when he first came out of Syracuse I love everything about him he was tracking a team player I think the problem with him today in today's NBA is the fact that he's a volume shooter he just has fourteen point you might have to put up fifteen shot you know it really afford that for a bench player I was in I I agree with you there's an argument to be made the Carmelo Anthony on our roster today won't work if he's not ready to make real adjustments to his game and dampens player and all that so I would agree with that but I'm saying if mellows career is over and there's no shame in that it's twenty nineteen he was drafted in two thousand and three everybody from that draft class either retired or stinks except for lebron so who's a freak of nature so regardless of whether you can be on a roster in twenty nineteen I think you can you think you can't whatever mellows legacy to me has been crazy for the last decade absolutely I'm not disagreeing with you at all in fact I disagree with the guy from Miami that says he was lazy I want you to put I believe Mel when number two in that draft in lebron James what number one if memory serves me right now hello no one went to mellow went three Darko went to yeah but lebron James one number one and that one will not mellow verses of Ron's first four years in their career against each other well the full brunt yeah I mean you don't know who's a year older and I appreciate the call like obviously lebron's a better player and mellow was a little bit more physically you know here's a more refined shooter and a scorer immediately it felt like in some of those head to head matches the clearly lebron passed them by and then lebron also because of his unique passing ability he made all others around him better in a way that most scores didn't like Tobey dead ends waited did and will brought cut Carmelo did it now again Kobe better defensive player than Carmelo also help this team and that was there but these guys are scores you guys are a leak scores and for his era it wasn't as much about ball movement in three point shots as it is now it was get the ball isolation maybe some pick and roll what a back to the basket and go to work and Mel was as good of a go to work scorer as this game is seen in a long long long time let's see here in Cleveland Stephen is on CBS sports radio eight five five two one two four two two seven what's up Stephen just got a whole lot of fun and you'll be in my car really want to talk topic so I think a good way just via voice my opinion really quick comparing him lebron and Dwyane Wade all his contemporary two of his contemporaries that our beloved way more than he is I think the first thing that we can point to is look at the fact that he doesn't have a championship and we have a rotten deal I feel like lebron and we'd get passes on any negativity that would be associated with them especially the brown which start to come out now because of those championships they want I think that would help love Carmelo legacy immensely but I think the other thing too all looking at his your reputation and like what is that about him outside of basketball I think lebron's on actually job of cultivating you know a picture of what kind of guy he is in his charitable work on in creating this image of a young guy like Donovan Mitchell I think he gets that whatever people he surrounded with I've heard nothing but good things about charity and things he does and all the city I think that's an issue that I think Carmel hat I never hear about him doing charity where I live in Denver but I never heard about him being such a great guy like geodesy barely had gone for two he I've seen a lot I listen I I'll tell you this though man and I I and I I hear what you're saying because narrative does go a long way and obviously you're right if you would have won a championship that changes everything like if you had one title like Dirk had one title different yeah I of course and and that's that you know so maybe they're gonna comp is Iverson or Barkley as opposed to those other guys but that's fine because those guys don't get nearly the hate that mellow gets but I'll just tell you Carmelo Anthony has done an incredible amount of charity work in his hometown of Baltimore where Carmelo grew up in very tough circumstances in Denver and the New York he built the was the principal donor for the mellow center he gave what at the time was the largest single athletic contribution I believe it any major university when he gave three and a half million back to Syracuse he's opened up foundations to help underserved communities with education and community outreach and he's involved in the boys and girls club like Carmelo Anthony is a charitable dude so great maybe you just don't know about that but but he absolutely has given back two last quick points sure all right also in regards that that that's awesome and that's problematic that I didn't know that somehow I'm seeing Donna than that so maybe I need to follow from there the people are better Falah grabbed that probably the issue I didn't know about these things so that the problem to be there and again that maybe that's the perspective of I'm in Cleveland I see lebron and if I like a player I father and stranded I didn't see that so that's awesome that the problem that was shared and the number two I don't know I feel like I can only speak about my generation but I feel my generation is also extremely critical you know if the guy doesn't have a championship we we don't value him what in perspective I love the staff you've been giving throughout this segment I do think you have to recognize that he's been one of the top five players in this position his whole career and I think people just in my generation look at him as like at some point yet with a championship well that you just don't matter I think it listen I I I I understand that I get it and that's something that.

Football scrimmages force Goodman, that, means it's It's back in the air college football teams opening up. Their practices today So one month away from the real? Deal, and but but you said high school high schools like approaching quickly yeah When their seasons get here they start the middle of August and hope hope the weather that we've seen for the last few days will continue. To stick, around as those young men get out there and start, conditioning and. Working out, and that sort of stuff because again that can. Just be brutal on anyone who's outside athletes construction workers I mean? That's I did look down the road the other day. In the the guys who put the roof on the house I'm like man if they'd just waited a few days because they were doing it right when I mean during that brutal. Heat wave, few days they'd have been better off so yeah well, it is. It is, man It is nice to have these temperatures like we've got right now for those working outside I, know it's a it's going. To help, them, be more. Productive and actually Heaven forbid actually. Be a little comfortable, while doing by the way numbers ran from shark week Which I. Didn't watch any I didn't watch any of it this year it was down it's my. Fault then they averaged one point million in total. Viewers on the Discovery Channel is down still. They, nearly doubled CNN's average, of eight hundred ninety, one thousand Melissa different. Times n., n. viewers well actually with those numbers it's more like minnows but that's. Another story Fox News twenty fifth consecutive month is the most watched network in cable in July Beating, out the the others, FOX was first in primetime. With an average of about two point four. Million viewers and. Finished first in. The total day around one point four million Hannity and Tucker Carlson or the top two. Programs for the month and and then MSNBC's Rachel. Meadow came in third with the appropriate named. Rachel, meadow show MSNBC overall, was second behind Fox, News channel in primetime. But then, in total day they dropped to third behind Nickelodeon believe it or not Out of the victory cable networks CNN placed tenth in prime. And seventh in the total day CNN. Lawsuit HGTV USA history channel Discovery Channel hallmark channel and I think shape with Martha, on public access perhaps or maybe after in that last one I missed that one but FOX. Business network beats CNBC who had a twenty three year low in, business day viewers for the month I haven't I in all fairness to, both of those business networks I, have a tough time watching those all those. Tickers and things scrolling or just distracting they're just really hard to to watch but so if if if you're into if you're a TV junkie. Our news junkie then those are the numbers that have been, have been coming in It would have probably helped shark shark NATO Oh I don't know about that, if it had, come out during the month a different channel but maybe they would have fed off. Of each other fed off of? Each. Other did you say that on purpose no now this and this. Was the thirtieth? Anniversary to of shark? Week wasn't that inter twenty fifth or thirtieth I mean I I know they. Were like celebrating some monumental anniversary thirty thirty okay in doing it and look and I I know people right now I, got, a, friend of mine and he's like oh man I got this recorded on the DVR, because he works. A lot and he's like I got this I can't wait to watch, this and I just didn't really think about it much this year, not, that, I was ever a big shark week fan and you know you wanna you wanna, give me a. Story about sharks giving jaws all right That's all you need right there. We're gonna need a bigger boat, did you. Hear about Alan, Alda I. Don't know if you heard okay.

Act and give talks and Ellen all, does a podcast really yeah, I can. Only imagine yeah he is a wild eyed left-winger yeah. I can only imagine what he talks. About I. Bet, he added. He'd suffers from TD s worse than. A lot of. Folks out there yeah but you know. What he does give some great advice in his he he put out a tweet says if you get a diagnosis keep moving Yeah. I love that good for him you know unlike our friends on. The, left when when someone on the left get sick I don't I'm happy and I don't celebrate and I don't you know wish the worst upon them I'd I'd give me he's a human being he's someone, who's. Been, in certain roles I. Never, watched mash but he's been in. Certain, roles in movies that light and you know. I don't wish this. Upon anybody so I would I do offer him prayers and I do. Hope, that it's something that? Does not hold him back eighty two years. Old, there's a lot of things that, can sneak up and get, you yeah And, you know so if if this, is the worst.
