Powell Sees Taper Starting This Year
"About what pal is going to say on Friday. And basically nothing. Well, I think he is going to be appropriately vague and perfectly noncommittal. Well, guess what? That's what happened. But I also told you That he would not Paper. You would not raise rates because he had too many things going Augusta, one of the things Was I told you That you've got to have full employment. And right now. We're receiving every week. New sign up for unemployment unemployment checks The unemployment applicants each week I running between three and 450,000. Anything about 350,000 is a recession. Well, guess what he said. When he came out, Jack, what I said. Doesn't have full employment. The Federal Reserve Chairman Powell He just came out and said that well. You may likely begin to taper before the end of the year. However, you went on to say That rate hikes aren't imminent. As you're still much ground to cover. Before the economy hits, full employment, exactly what I said. I also said They're lying. They're not gonna They're not. They're not going to raise rates because they don't control it. Paul does not control the Federal Reserve. The same banks, TERT warlords, bank stir Gangsters. Who control the Federal Reserve, the same ones who control The military industrial machine.
We Work by Grace
"By the grace of god. I am what. I am and his grace toward me was not in vain on the contrary i worked harder than any of them though it was not i but the grace of god that is with me. Paul realized that the first part of this verse might be misunderstood. I worked harder than any of them so he goes on to say though it was not i but the grace of god that is with me. Paul does not trace his obedience back to his thankfulness for past grace. He traces it up to moment by moment. Ever arriving grace. He is banking on the promise. Of god's future grace to arrive at every moment of need in every instant of paul's intention and effort to obey christ grace was at work to produce that intention and that effort paul did not bring about his work merely out of gratitude for past grace bought in moment by moment reliance on the arrival of promised grace. Paul wants to emphasize that the ever arriving grace of god is the decisive cause of his work. Does it really save. Doesn't it just say that. The grace of god worked with paul. No it says moore. We have to come to terms with the words though it was not i. Paul wants to exalt the moment by moment grace of god in such a way that it is clear that he himself is not the decisive doer of his work.
The mystery Of Paul Amadeus Dienach
"Story begins in nineteen seventeen in switzerland. Paul is a swiss teacher and academic enthusiast in his twenties he pursued humanitarian studies cultural history and something called classical philology which is basically the study of ancient greek and latin written language. But now paul's thirty one years old and he teaches mostly history and as far as we know he's fairly healthy but then one day out of nowhere hall just falls asleep presumably. It's in the middle of a normal everyday activity because his family and friends tried to rouse him. But paul doesn't wake up this freaks everyone out so they take him to the hospital. The doctors say paul has slipped into a coma but they can't find anything physically wrong with him and paul stays like this for fifteen days until finally he wakes up. It's snowing outside and the second. Paul opens his eyes. His mother falls onto the floor. She is sobbing with relief. Halls a little disoriented when he wakes up but that he seems buying doctors still can't figure out what caused the two week coma but after a few months. Paul seems to be back to normal. Everyone hopes it just a weird one time incident but four years later in may of nineteen twenty one. It happens again. Paul falls asleep and once more. His friends and family can't wait kim. Only this time it lasts longer than a few weeks. A month passes and still nothing at this point. Things are looking even more dire than before. The doctors have to put paul on a feeding tube to keep them alive. Meanwhile his aging mother and his other friends and family continue to visit him. All they can do is pray paul spontaneously wake up but another month goes by and people start to give up hope. His mother even dies during this time. Presumably of natural causes still. It's got to be just the worst way to go knowing that your son is in a mysterious coma even if he does wake. You didn't even get to say goodbye. Finally paul does wake up in may of nineteen twenty two one year after he fell asleep. He opens his eyes. Paul's completely awake and aside from his muscles not being used in a while. He's fully functioning but again doctors have no idea what was wrong with him or if it will happen again. Worst of all someone has to tell him about his mother's passing which breaks his heart. And maybe it's this grief that's weighing on paul. Because from the moment he wakes up. He's acting cagey as he won't say anything about what he experienced during the coma. Which makes sense if there was nothing to talk about but from the way polls refusing to answer his questions. It seems like maybe something did happen while he was unconscious. And that whatever it is he literally doesn't want anyone to know and paul. Strange behaviour doesn't end there because as the months go by he basically becomes a recluse he wants see or talk to any friends or family but from what they can tell. Paul seems to be preoccupied with getting his affairs. In order he cleans out his deceased. Mother's house takes care of his inheritance issues and sell some land other than that. He keeps himself so busy with manual labor. It's as if he's purposefully preoccupying himself and he prefers to spend his evenings alone reading philosophy books and to be fair. Paul is a teacher and he was probably a big reader before but he more invested than ever in his studies specifically anything having to do with philosophy and he's spending a lot of time talking to his priest which is a pretty new development.
Learning What Stories To Tell To Drive Success
"Hi Paul Welcome to the show. Hey thanks for having me on them. I'm happy to be here so Paul I have to tell you. I was very intrigued by the premise of your book. Which I'm sure comes as no surprise to my listeners. As I've not only used storytelling in some of my episodes to help illustrate an idea or insight but in episode forty six my show. I shared three keys to effective storytelling. And for those interested. I'll be sure to include links to those past episodes in the show notes but in the title of Your Book. You point out how there are in fact ten stories that every leader should be ready to us and tell if they want to be successful so before we explore a few of them a great place to start here would be if you could share a brief overview of what these. Ted Different stories are. Paul Yeah Shera. And I'm certainly not claiming these are the only ten stories in fact I hope I make a point somewhere in there that in fact just the opposite you need a lot more stories in these in an in my previous books. I think I'd covered hundreds of different types of stories That my my goal here was an attempt for people who are just getting started in the storytelling space or wanting to use storytelling You know where should I start? What are the most important ten stories franny leader to tell so? Certainly not the only but I think these are probably a good list of the most important ones So yes for the ten. The first four go together because they're about setting direction for the organization so here those are where we came from. So that's our founding story why we can't stay there so that's a case for change story where we're going which is a vision story and how we're GONNA get there which is a strategy store because strategies about how you're going to get from where you are now to where you want to be so if you can tell those stories well. I think you've got a much better chance of getting the organization to go where you want them to go case the next forego together as well but they're more about who we are as an organization. So that's what we believe. The corporate values story who we serve set a customer story a story about the customer so that everyone at the organization can have a personal visceral understanding of of WHO. You're working for what we do for our customers. So that's a classical sales story or customer success story and then number eight is how we're different from our competitors so I call that a marketing story because marketings generally about differentiating yourself from your competitors and then the that leads to more and they kind of go together as well but there are more personal to you the leader. So that's why I lead the way I do. That's a personal leadership philosophy story and why you should want to work here so like not not you. But whoever you're talking to right so I caught a recruiting story. So you'll notice a number of different kind of functional type stories here but these are definitely not just stories for those functional leaders. I think every leader Regardless of function needs to be able to tell this at least this Saturday ten stories now Paul would like to do is explore a few of these types of stories that you just described of course some of them. I've already explored in past episodes for example episode thirty one which was the first edition of Leadership Espresso shot explored this idea of using stories to communicate a larger vision. So what I'd like to do with you. Today is discussed some of these types of stories that many of us probably haven't even thought about in terms of how we lead and the first one is the story type. You call why I lead the way. I do which is essentially using a story that helps illustrate our leadership philosophy or approach her style now. Unlike a story we create to help us explain the change initiative or an ambitious vision or long-term plan. This one might not seem as a parent in terms of Bove when we needed or even how we use it so when in our work week Paul does this kind of story come into play and how does it help us improve the way we lead. Yeah great question. So this story would be used or not This type of story. I should say because I think most leaders need more than one leadership philosophy story you need at least one but probably several and the most frequent Or commonplace you would use this. Anti uses is when you're on boarding new direct report. Where whether so? That's whether you've got a new employees working for you and you just need to introduce them to your leadership philosophy in your leadership style or you are new. You've taken a new job and then everybody who works for you of course is new to you And those are the situations where you need to set expectations of the organization or the people of what leadership to expect from you and also what kind of leadership you expect from them. And the way I've seen most people do this in the past which is really frustrating as they they have this list you know they they lay on you as if it some profound You know list that says something like my leadership. Philosophy has got a bunch of buzzwords on it and much of bullet points and the kind of thing that most of us could probably say about ourselves or anybody else. I I prefer to focus on. Value added You leadership exercises and I prefer to be disciplined in my approach and in a whatever but it's the kind of thing that anybody could say about themselves. These stories are going to be very unique though. They're basically going to be examples of times in your career where you've either made leadership mistake or or made a great leadership decision or exhibited great leadership behavior or saw someone else exhibit. Great Leadership Behavior or leadership mistake. That just changed your thinking about what great leadership is and made you the leader that you are today. So those types of stories are far more meaningful to people in helping set expectations of what kind of leadership to expect from you and and to give them a concrete idea of what that might look like. It's interesting how as you were just described Paul particularly about how it's clarifying expectations. Both in terms of what we expect from others and what employees should expect from us as it got me thinking about some of the stories. I've shared a pass leaders worked with and how in many ways these stories were a perfect vehicle to illustrate their leadership. Style or philosophy that in sharing this story about how these leaders operated it was as much a teachable lesson on leadership as it was a glimpse into how they viewed leadership and what made them so good about it. Yeah I think so so. You're not only telling them what to expect from you. You're teaching them a leadership lesson Presumably you've the store you choose to share would be an example that would teach somebody a good leadership style right so Yeah it helps them learn how to be a better leader as well
Tom Steyer polling at 2nd place in South Carolina, qualifies for DNC debate this month
"Meanwhile what's going right for Tom Stiers the California billionaire and presidential candidate will be on the debate stage tomorrow because of his unusually high poll numbers his polling jumped in two key early primary states last week a fox news poll showed him at fifteen percent in South Carolina that puts him second behind only Joe Biden and he's tied for third with Elizabeth Warren in Nevada at twelve percent it'll bump joins me now his national correspondent for The Washington Post any right about how Stiers shaping the twenty twenty election hello hello well before we get a star let's just talk about Booker what happened with him essentially what happened with him is that he was never able to get real traction his campaign and there are a lot of reasons that's probably the case one of course being that the field is so big another being that there are other candidates who shared his his sort of broadly moderate space in the field who were able to get more traction people like judge from Indiana were really able to get to eat into that space and sort of present themselves as new in a way that that Booker had trouble doing you his is the story of a lot of these cameras which is that it it's hard to get in front of orders nationally and brokerages was able to do it right and he certainly complain that one of the reasons he couldn't get enough facetime nationally was the DMC the debate rules that the DNC put forward he criticized the rule saying that billionaire candidates like Styrum Bloomberg can really game the system because they can put so much advertising on TV and really attracts people in in Paul's does he have a point there is he's got extremely good point in that the DNC rules were created specifically to trying well we know down the field but by doing so what the DNC ended up doing an advert only was rewarding people who were able to make a very strategic massive investments in certain places I and punish those who weren't so well Booker did have a national a profile as a senator from the from the state New Jersey he was not able to for example spend the kind of money that one could to either influence individual polls or get his name out and ends and get a lot of small donors to give to his campaign and that limit is is rich well speaking of let's hear a clip of tape from CNN yesterday where Jake tapper is specifically asking Tom Stiers about spending money for poll numbers ninety one percent of television ad spending in South Carolina is from you ninety seven percent of television ad spending in Nevada is from you do you not think that it's your millions and the flood of advertising in those states that that's why you did well in the polls and are now on the debate stage Jake if you'll read today's Washington post there's a story about this and what it details is what's actually going on on the ground I've been to South Carolina multiple times we have eighty two organizers on the ground in South Carolina I match your grass roots person I've been there there's someone who didn't endorse me who's a politician in South Carolina who said expire came down here he rolled up his sleeves he went out he listen to people he sat across the table he work okay so feel of what's the truth there is it's the money buying the polls or is he actually doing the work to get the support I mean a I think it sort of gives the game way himself when he says he has eighty eighty however many organizes on the ground as organizes aren't working for free and you can you know Cory Booker didn't everyday organizes on ground is gonna forty eighty organizer's on the ground right I mean did tappers numbers about that TV spending or write us tire is dominated in South Carolina and Nevada television spots in the reason he's done so is very simple the democratic rule said you need to be at a certain percentage of support in the early state polls in the waste tires I'd do that was poor bunch of money in the states that so far other came it's like Joe Biden Bernie Sanders aren't spending money in because they're further down the line right but Snyder has the money he just sort of put a bunch of money into the states in advertising there he can put a bunch of staff in those states push up his numbers in those states and hit the mark he needs in order to make the debate stage but will that translate into votes when it comes down to it when it comes to Iowa to New Hampshire and then later to South Carolina and Nevada so far it hasn't seemed as though it's going to work I mean one of the things he's clearly trying to do is get on the debate stage but after his debate performances it's not as though he suddenly shoots up in the polls he still only about two percent nationally debates are obviously something that should be reflected in national poll numbers because there are national events of people tune into I think one of the things we're going to see is after Iowa New Hampshire we will see whoever does better in those states start to see more support in the next two states down the line though as being South Carolina and Nevada and I think that'll start to flood out some of the attention it's Dyer has bought for himself and it's certainly possible to maybe Stiers all out of the blue find today big appeal from Democrats nationally so far though even though he's managed to get on the debate stage he hasn't been able to make a case the really persuades lot national Democrats to support even though he was early on the impeachment wagon he took out ads along time ago basically calling for Donald trump's impeachment is that not translating into support in the Democratic Party now aids late hasn't so far I mean I think that there certainly was an aspect of that that was that was viewed by a least among political observers as being someone self serving was pretty clear that he was using impeachment of sort of get his name out there I that said even though he has your right for months you know well over a year and sort of blanketing the airwaves with his own image and this call for impeachment again he's a two percent nationally in the polls and that too if that we're going to have an effect would be reflected in those national poll numbers so he'll be on the debate stage tomorrow but Michael Bloomberg will not and why is that because he certainly has been blanketing the airwaves with ads right but in different places Bloomberg has made a conscious decision not to take contributions from people and that has meant that he's it's impossible for him to meet to debate standards which require a certain number of contributions from people around the country and as such will Bloomberg Astana's he's were largely issued the first several states that are gonna be voting and really focused on super Tuesday the first Tuesday March when a bunch of large states on a lot of states including California and Texas go to the polls so Bloomberg spent a lot of money on ads but he spent it in those other early states he hasn't spent a lot in South Carolina or Nevada and if you look at the rationale behind that it makes some sense there are a lot more delegates at stake in that first Tuesday March then it will be in any of the four states that come up before then so do you see Starfire as this campaign goes forward into super Tuesday DEC Stiers star waning and Bloomberg's taking off one I'm not even sure that the star has much of a start of Wayne and it certainly did well in this fox news poll on some other polls that that have been doing moderately okay but he's not doing very well as a candid Bloomberg being a part of lunch money in the race he's not doing particularly well either but I think the Bloomberg strategy is designed to pay off later in the cycle then is tires I animal I mean star has enough money to stay in and told the general election if you want to do which is something the Bloomberg says he's going to do is actually so I don't see our missile dropping out anytime soon just question how much money he wants the perk right so it ends worth noting that he's rich but he's not Bloomberg rich right it's like one point six billion verses fifty four billion yeah as Michael Bloomberg will point out very few people are Michael Bloomberg rich right well what does this say to you when you take a step back and look at the whole big picture of money in politics what is this a two year does money translated into votes can you say about this early well I mean obviously when we're talking about these poll numbers were not necessarily talking about votes I'll be interested to see if Stiers decent position and some is always winning states were pointed out to buy his winning in both those states right now it's gonna be interesting to see if it does translate that certainly has in the past in the case that people have been able to pour a lot of money into campaigns and do better than you might have expected but again that doesn't always hold driver Jeb bush in twenty sixteen add you know nine figures that he was gonna spend both directly and have people spend on his behalf needed terribly in the presidential primaries so so it's not a one to one correlation but it's clearly the case that we are right now talking about Tom star and Mike Bloomberg while we are at the same time watching established US centers like Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand standing on the sidelines after having announcer campuses money definitely does by you the ability to stick around as long as you want
Browns Dismiss GM John Dorsey Days After Firing Head Coach Freddie Kitchens
"Let's get to it Sadly adly mark we gotta start with the browns. How did we get back here? We're back we're back to the bounds being the browns. They have fired yet. Another general manager her Cleveland parted ways with John Dorsey. After two years on the helm the team announced made that move official after it was reported in multiple places. The decision to move on from Dorsey comes just two days after the Brian Brown's fired head coach Freddie Kitchens at the conclusion of the regular season Dorsey had a meeting with. Jimmy has them the team owner earlier. Tuesday the two sides according to Tom Palacio We're talking about possible. Structural changes that would curb Dorsey authorities GM but when the two sides can come to an agreement it was over mark Feels like Cleveland. Even though the better roster is back to square one in terms of dysfunction and just in general question marks about the present and the future and I can't and even begin to understand how you must feel the frustration of well. I'm of two minds because the first is they're just more proof that the browns the constant mode is sort of developing farce. I mean whatever whenever you think that they've turned a corner. They're actually just going in a circle back to where they were before for. And there are a lot of disturbing reports and whispers coming out of Cleveland that the ownership and we know this is not not shocking. Can you think about it. But the but they continue to be very impatient with all their decisions and the people they hire and so the question now and I think that the I've never seen the fan base this deflated because of where they were a year ago at this time. Or let's say seven months ago to now but because it just doesn't seem to matter to most people who they hire and it's too it's too de energizing using to get excited about fill in the blank coach and the from the other side though I will say this had they kept John Dorsey. It would've narrowed the candidate list of who was gonNA come and work with that next team by a lot so I think if you're going to keep doing this but do you agree with that. Dorsey wasn't the guy to be leading the charge. Because everyone seems it to be an agreement that he was a guy that came in the obviously inherited. Sasha's bountiful gifts and had some hits has mrs but had some big hits to me it all feels a little premature to take him out of the equation but this organization has done. There wasn't a straight firing right. They just say couldn't get different visions on how they saw the football operation going full hundred percent. I think they wanted to keep them and they talked about how much they liked him. But John Dorsey is probably very prideful and not going to take what is it what is when you're changing title it also demotion what else is it and the thing is he he. It's hit. It was his decision number one to go with Freddie Kitchens and they they ignored Paul does recommendations of Kevin Stefanski DEEPA. Desta also wanted. Sean McDermott in the past. So I think what they were saying. Was We kind of trust. Paul Podesta's voice in in this at this time around and that's not something that again. It's kitchens fall. It's a soup of Dursey for hiring kitchens more recently. Stunning fall though we were at the owners meetings and at that point John Dorsey was the toast of the NFL. I read them in the top five of my GM rankings. no-one no-one said Oh that's that's too high. I mean like it was very recent who is five. Oh who's right behind him. Thomas demetre was five. Kevin Colbert over three but It is amazing how much talent he acquired in a short time and he's gone but I think they've gotten it wrong so many times of not having the GM and the coach align that act. I do like I like I think that needs to be on the same page. Yes at every time. So I'm fine with it. It's deflating to the point of heartbreak for for Browns fans that last year at this time this job was seen as one of the most coveted in the league with a young talented nucleus. And you're finally going to bring the winter to Cleveland and now it's senior reading reading stories that executives say that's the one place I would not go and you're right back to where you were if some of these coaching tree scenarios were cal Shanahan and has a number of people interviewing with the browns. He was there he's he. He demanded his way out of the building. You got you know the bill. BELICHICK's of the world are going to be telling these guys be careful because yes. It's great for you to go on and get a head coaching job. But the DNA here is that you won't be there. Four hundred as has made it clear in his press conference Thursday that the coach would be part of hiring the GM which sounds weird. But I know that's fine but it means that the coaches ultimately the GM's boss Asif you get hyper and that's fine as long as it's defined ahead of time if that helps them get mcdaniels fancier whoever it is that they want in the door. That's fine it it just makes makes it clear that it's the coach. That's in charge and function and dysfunction always starts at the top and sports and since the has them's joined there on their fifth took over team. They're on their fifth coaching search and seven years and John Dorsey is the fifth different person or group heading up the football operation in that same seven seven year that has to be unprecedented. I mean there are at least just third that work in at least the third that only had one year really which is why
The Marshall Plan
"Couple of weeks ago we visited the george george c marshall foundation in lexington virginia and we are here. It's next to the campus of the virginia military institute. George marshall is this v._m. Is most prestigious alone ready darren. I'm ready. The foundation was really excited to have us and to be honest. We were pretty excited to reserved parking for mr result ski and mr woods anything's ever been resorted with my name on it. The building looks like an armory cement. Now a lot of frills like a police where you would wait out a nuclear winter or hide plutonium good morning good morning good morning. We all knew we were there to meet a guy named age poll baron. I grew up in houston texas and then after college marine corps and served for twenty four years. I was air controller and a helicopter pilot as anybody buddy told you you have a resemblance john mccain. I've heard that paul does kinda actually look like john mccain. He's wearing a navy-blue jacket with a pin. Tell me about that bad on your jacket foundation pin. It has five stars on it. Five star general marshall was a five star general polls. An expert on the military strategist and statesman hates men. George marshall came over sway to ask him but something that's come up again and again in the presidential primary debates. Everyone's talking about the marshall plan julia alien castro. One of the things i proposed in my plan is essentially a twenty-first-century marshall plan for central america kissed gillibrand. What congress needs to do is pass. A marshall marshall plan to rebuild puerto rico make sure candidates are calling for marshall plan to fight climate change a marshall plan to improve national infrastructure structure forward a douglas plant and the reason we call it. A plan named after a person is not just in honor of frederick douglass to remind us of the marshall plan. That's buddha judge. He's calling for a marshall plan for racial equality and here's hillary clinton a few years back calling for one in appalachia. We have to have like the equivalent of a marshall plan. Bush called for juan obama. You get it and this isn't new. Actually there've been calls for more marshall plans since the original marshall plan which by the way began in nineteen forty eight that year someone called for a marshall plan for stray dogs and cats but no one is being really specific about what a marshall should plan actually means. It's just like this magic. Catch all never mind. The details will fix it term so those made us wonder what actually was the marshall through plan. Why is everyone always talking about it but kind of never really doing it. Hello welcome to planet money. I'm greg results ski and i'm darren woodson today on the show with going back to the caddock days just after world war two and two guy who came up with this plan to help your rebuild after the war george c the marshall. It's a story about what might be the most successful intervention history when we sent bullets of cash actual boatloads to help not just one other country but sixteen other countries. Thank you uncle sam that so generous yep. That's not the full story. The whole whole world hangs in the balance

"He hates energy. That you're doing it. Paul's emoji cast. Nice. Yeah. Just for you. Some people are confused. I, I literally have heard of none of those towns other than Allentown Bethlehem, which is really funny because Zion hill longs. Longs, chauffeur, or is it gopher it's definitely show for, but I, I don't know. This is that yellow dot is Paul right there. You're okay Paul. I am roughly right there. I will say that. That's that sounds pretty amazing. Okay. Let's continue on trying to plow through before he has to tornado plows through lower Makanji valley. Really, it seems silly to talk about the Intel amounts pro in Paul's in life is in peril. But let's go to it. Why? So, but a year and a half Microsoft announced a new version of its classic and Telemachos mouse and literally look just like the it's like one of those radio only things from the late nineties, it's the red light on the bottom. Remember, why are not wireless, right? Apparently this was such a big success. They're making a pro version of it. Now, this one actually comes in two colors, you can configure the color of the light that comes out of the plot. It's still wired for maximum performance. It's aimed at gamers, pretty much professionals who miss this mouse, for some reason, also still righty mouse. So if you're a lefty, you know, Microsoft doesn't care about accessibility with just one product. This mass now. Probably the, the not. Yeah. I think that might let me look because. This was agnostic. That's why use it that went. Okay. So that's a later thing. This is a job of racial USB. It says. Yeah. So the new version, I assume the seem. Because I love them. They're my favorite mouse. I simply be fantastic. The mouse. Also plugs. NBA the PS two. Right. Know it's a USB. Come on. I love these masks, so much and they're cheap. Yeah. I don't either the pro version. I bought a dozen of them. I've got you know, whenever anybody says, I need a mouse. I got him. So that was kind of a more modern take on it, obviously, it's ambidextrous. That's cool. The original Intel amounts was righty, only. Yeah I'm a leftist one. I hate pro righty, only I don't know why. But do you think this is like a fun, retro thing for them? Is this why they're doing it or I mean is there really reason for gaming? Yes. A wired mouse, actually does provide better. Okay. Yeah. So that's why they call that gaming mouse. Right. Also, it's the number correct me if I'm wrong, but razor mice, other mice talk about the resolution of the mouse the number of points. Oh. So. Right. May have to that could be that I'm actually that I do not know if it has a better resolution could be that makes sense. Yes. Not a ball mouse. Right. It's a hell, nobody uses those anymore. Does use those? The oil is a retro retro mount. So no, it's a light. Remember, I said have red light, so I think I could be wrong. But I believe the original Intel amounts was the first non ball mouse, that Microsoft made it had a red light..

"And finally. The year. They got the Yahoo thing or I mean. Yahoo? So Yahoo played into it. The Yahoo deal that they did. But it was also because they were spending a lot to build out all the data centers that ran being. So they were spending a lot of money and not making a lot of money. It's been it's been a rough root for paying, but I think by most accounts, now it has about thirty percents share. Is that right? Wow. That's no. I think it's something like that. No. It's nothing like that possibly. Well, that's only because it's under under ten percent. Yeah. You might be in Europe. It's higher or. It. Europe. Yeah. In the United States, it might be double digits somewhere. But it's in worldwide, it's less than ten it's like eight point something percent. I use being papers that count. So Microsoft claims being has thirty three percent market share, in the US. And how they measure that we don't know. Right. Is that what does that applications have to say about that? As we know from other stats they've given us. Sometimes they have interesting ways of counting when yahu used it.

That's when Bing at the becomes single digits again. Don't the Yahoo media properties, like tech crunch use it or they use ads thinking of thinking about being ads off it from being from being ads right? Yeah. And then there's a lot of I think there's a lot of people who use that. What is that thing where you get a little credit for using being rewards? Being injury words, I think people use Bing rewards.

It's probably not. Being is number two Bing, Yahoo. And by two or number two, three and four after Google. Not according to net market share. But oh yeah. But bite is number two, according to them, because Biden on China yet. Ten percents has a presence in China, right? Okay. Well. It's still around it. Old according to okay, here, it is the global search market worldwide. That's the difference. Seventy-six Google fifteen percent by two four percent being two percent. Yahoo point six yen dex, but that's global. So global Microsoft makes the higher higher predictions around. US share only. Yeah. Of course. Yeah. Odd that Bing, gave me that as the first, let me see. Let's put US share well, or is it on Leo? May hear from Stati STA, which I think probably is using. What, what is it calm score? That's the best or net app that market share this is according to Microsoft, wow, this has this goes goes the starts in two thousand eight it was fifty eight percent. Google nine percent thing being briefly January twenty ten when it started eleven percent and eleven point eight percent then eleven. So it was double digits for a little while. Then all the way up to the high point which looks like twenty fifteen was nineteen points. No twenty percent in April twenty fifteen. Numbers are combined numbers because that's the other issue. If you look at mobile bang has point four for, here's the problem. Yeah there's statistics. There's lies damn lies and then statistics so January twenty nineteen Google sixty three percent Microsoft twenty four and a half percent oath or Yahoo eleven point five percent.

Go investigate this raining, really hard. But it's weird. Okay. I'm sorry. I don't want you to float away. I think you should check it out. What is the tornado soundly? Well weirdly, Ben in one once it silent, right up to the player kills you. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Well, it's not silent out. It's very loud. Okay. So I think you're okay, but if it gets suddenly quiet, Paul. Do you have does that mean I'm in the eye? Yeah. By looking for a woman looking for TOTO or something like what? Yeah. Your little dog too. Two. Yeah. Nine hundred ninety three. Is there any reason not to go to it? I've seen some people getting stuck with things like that. We're that we're printing thing that Brad head where you have to disable. Printing drivers and XPS. He's not the only one having that I've had a few people at that. Okay. So that's why you, if you try to upgrade, and it rolls back, that's something that you can link until you'll, you'll get one of those something happened dialogues, which are incredibly useless, but it will have an error code on it. And if you look it up, it might say, you need to temporarily in the, you know, the, the windows features control, panel, turnoff, Microsoft print, a PDF and XPS services, the old, the old print, you know, the Microsoft, sold alternative PDF, and that should do it. And there was also certain AMD raid drivers were blocking some people, too. I think so it's like kind of one off things. It's not a massive meltdown, kind of a situation where you know, no one's talked about losing data. No one's talked about kindles, not working or any of that stuff. We had Yikes. Where's that from outside Paul's window? So this is what happens it starts. I mean, if you see this is a three minute video at the beginning. It's just raining raining a little bit about halfway in minute in the wind starts to pick up a little bit a little bit just a little bit. And then pretty soon. Things are flying through the air, and you should probably run inside because it's basement glass. Here's the garage door, caved in. Yeah. Look like that yet. Intellects like this. Right. It's just it's just this part. No, it's worse than it's the middle one. What Paul I'm going to say? And this is two minutes before the garage door went. I'm just saying. Okay. Just a little hint. In Alabama this I now it's a lot. It's not no laughing matter. Guys joke serious, maybe. Mean there's nothing I can do about it, if it's this storm cellar, Paul, oh, you don't have money you in the basement or not. Hit your house. Do you have a base? Yeah. We do. We We have. have a smart person in the family. He is, she's already down there. Maybe next time why a lot of frogs and snakes and stuff. So that'd be worried. Yes. Also another side of the apocalypse. Yeah. Okay. I just we just care, Paul. We care about you. That's all. Well, I think it's it's it is such step. All it's a twist. It's scary. The thought of a tornado in New York City is I now really terrible. Military. The outskirts that can't mean like in the orc even where I live. It's it, it's literally a valley. It's surrounded by mountains. It's a very unusual place to have a tornado, but I mean, I guess the way the weather's going these days, you never know you never know. Just protect the vineyards. Great. So just to be just underscore this, if there were a place you could go, which apparently, there is a Microsoft downloaded that could force the nineteen of three update. Okay. Would you recommend that? The people who are listening to this show. Yeah. I mean they probably already know what they're doing. Yeah. And I, I There have have been been a a couple couple of. of early enough right seeking won't necessarily do. Oh, no, no, no. And you'll it will.

"It'll unlock some new features or add some new capabilities and Microsoft will charge OEM's more per copy for it. That's my guess. By the way. So you're correct. I just two things real quick. You could think about it as the home slash consumer version of workstation on the pro side, Ryan's appro with workstations. And also when this was in visioned, there was still this notion of modes in windows, and they had s mode, right? And S-mode was is this thing still but it was this thing where you could transition out of S-mode for free and get the in this case, the full version of palm. So you're running home in S-mode. Maybe we're running pro and S-mode you could run enterprise s but the windows home advanced are ultra. That's what we're calling it whatever the idea was that was going to be a paid upgrade. Right. And so it, it, it's something that any home user could go to just like any home user to, or pro user today could go to workstation but you have to pay for it. And so it's kind of a way of making upgrades that makes sense rather than just arbitrarily making upgrades. I guess. So the thing that threw people off was Nieto, N discovered this in the spec sheet for from Dell for a new two in one that they introduced computrac st-. So, Microsoft gave Neo in the statement, here's the exact statement, there is no new version of windows called windows. Ten home ultra. Okay. So if you're like Paul, and I and you've been around this goat rodeo a couple times, you would say, to Microsoft, okay? So there's not a new version of windows. Ten called home ultra is there a version of windows, ten home called something else that Dell had had live wrong name you're call it a abode, maybe? You know, and again, we're, we're it sounds like we're being that picky. But we have to do this Microsoft. It do. So I just said, is there another version is it does have a different name when will it be available?.

"Somebody's asking if Gramley understands the emoji. That's interesting. I don't know what happens when you use emoji, Italy. That. I don't know because I'm a writer. Yeah. I use the words is your words? Maybe that's what they say. Use your words your words. I think a mo- gee, I wouldn't put him in a blog post or resume definitely not in a resume. But I think emoji are very in a way they solve a problem with texting because texting do. Four thousand years ago, Leo. Senate emoji resume. Just see what happens if you want to work on the emoji team at Microsoft, and might be a good idea to do that. Oh, good point. Or actually hires you respond with. I'm not sure I want to work for you. You fell for this. Not good, embarrassing. Not good. All right. Lenovo. You didn't mention this, but Lenovo experiencing gross. So we're Lenovo reported I gotta get. I have to look at this to get it right. Because there's a lot of records in here but they just reported their quarterly and annual financial results. Right. So for the year it was record revenues for the year was the first time they hit over fifty billion dollars twelve point five percent growth year Viera in revenues what's responsible for this, their PC business. Their PC business is thirty eight point five billion of that fifty one billion, and it has grown market share this past year alone twenty three point four percent. What, what, what ship shortage, right? Yes. Sure. So. I don't know. I they say, if it's the ThinkPad line or the idea, they didn't spray. But if but if you by the way, if you look at their various lineups which include those things and a few others, and let's not forget the new book, right? Okay, let's forget it. But this is a this is a good example of that thing. I was just talking about where the very purpose driven devices. You know they don't just explode stuff out into the marketplace. They have a couple tablets. I mean, they do have a couple of tablets, and they have like the two in one type stuff, but the, the bread and butter over there is just traditional PC foreign factor, productivity focused, you know. You know serve. I they don't really serve the low low end of the market, except maybe an education, but maybe let's say from the mid part of the market up to premium and it's, it's awesome lineup of PC's and their number one. So So do they? did they did? They mention windows, seven upgrades. No. Right. That wasn't part of the reason for the growth They didn't. didn't actually they specifically credited, I think it was just premium and gaming. Thinkpad among others. I didn't put it in my article, but I believe they literally said premium and gaming interesting. Chiro that can happen if they had unusual number of enterprise buys or something like that. Right. I mean you know, if one company IBM comes along buys forty thousand pads that would do. Well year ago they were number two they since then they've experienced over twenty three percent growth in PC sales. That's twenty nine twenty eight twenty nine contributed a little bit to that. That's, that's my PC choice. Although I'm really kinda eyeballing, this new P, S thirteen when that comes. And sweet she, I'm disapp-, I'll tell you, the disappointment on the thing, paddock's, when extremist battery life is just not great a couple of three hours, four hours, I want, I'm so used to having I want eight or nine hours. I want a day. Yeah. Once you have that it's kind of hard to get to go back. I mean we used to be happy three hours. That's great. Windows, tan apparently Dell is saying there is a windows, ten home ultra. Yeah. Good question. I believe what that is, is the thing that Paul wrote about a year ago that was called windows, ten home advanced, which we think, is a new edition of windows ten that Microsoft still has not introduced, but that will do something more than plain old home..

"Video editors because they didn't have much of a choice now they make computers, custom designed for that market. And this the graphics artist would love this Acer. I it makes sense. This is another unusual hinge design, this is zen book for may Seuss. It has two screens. It's got a big screen and a little screen. And I don't really know how that work but it's gonna cool. Been seen raves for the new Dell thirteen experts, thirteen two and one people really excited about this. This is a tenth generation until processor. So I mean I just look at the omen that is wild. That's from the. Wild. So there's, it's a beast another to screen device. So there's some really interesting stuff out there. I think. Yeah, there is. And that's something Microsoft's right to tout the innovation is there is no innovation happening. Any anywhere else in the I mean MAC, Apple's max for crying out loud. We've got a different membrane in our keyboard, just as Clack is the last. Yeah, but the membranes now nylon psycho on. That's not innovation. And of course, they're trying to away a lot of developers and, and graphics designers and pros from the apple camp. And I think they're going to win. I think apple has undeserved that market and gotten away with it for a really long time. And just things like touch and pen, you know, the ability to bring the screen down and right right on the screen, add don't have to have a separatist during the complexity that goes along with that. I it's, it's kind of a no brainer. Yeah. I mean this is this now. If you're using adobe software than windows is a great choice because it said, dental functionality. And I think that's probably true a number of other computers. I don't know if Microsoft's benefiting as much because I suspect some some apple professionals will put Lennox not, not, not. But that maybe you couldn't buy those without windows. I mean technically. Yes. And it's mart thing to do which is what I did with a think paddock's one. Extremists duel. Boot. So you get the best of both worlds, so. Very nice. I see I see innovation. Let's take a little time out. I want to do an ad. I just have punish you all. No. Actually, this is something you're going to, like, Paul because you use it it's grammar early. We know Paul loves grammar early. Unsolicited many times you've said, how much you love Graham really do I think, part of the purpose of this ad from my point of view to explain the grammar Lee is not a grammar checker? I mean it does that, but that's really in the name kind of makes you think, oh, it's like spell checker only with grammar, and yes, the free version. That's what it does. It does spell checking and grammar checking, but it does a whole lot more, especially the premium version. So I want you to think of grammar Lee more as a, a writing assistant somebody looking over your shoulder to help you write better to look and sound smarter. You can improve your communication at school and at work, and almost anywhere with grammar early because it's context aware. It knows if you're writing a blog post or an essay, you know. Academic, if you're writing academic stuff for a work memo and it helps you pick the right words, the right choices, even the right style..

"Light available. It won't be calm won't be the new Kwok. No. I think I think it will be a slightly more formal discussion around the vagueness that they just described here. In other words, you know, you may have seen. We talk about modern OS now we're gonna talk about how we think we're going to get to it. And maybe even here's the name or, you know, here's rough timing on how this is gonna look there will be surfaced devices because there will there will be third party devices, because they will, I think, Mary, Jo referenced the Lenovo announcement from the past month, where they had a folding computer, and they, it's going to run some kind of windows, but they wouldn't say what it was even when asked, which is really weird. Because, you know, you look at that you think it's going to run windows ten right now. Like you know, we'll see what we'll see what it runs. That's interesting. That's a hint right there. Because they would be telling the OEM's now. Assume. Yeah. Fortunately, that weird paragraph kind of destroyed the impact of what I thought was kind of interesting. I mean these are these new PC's at computations are kind of cool. Yeah, they're interesting. Right. They're not the same old same old, which is kind of good the about this. I, I just wrote a an editorial about the PC generally it's like here's this market that is by all accounts, kind of failing, right? It's two thirds. The size it used to be PC sales down every year for seven years in a row, it is the, the market itself is a smaller than the market for smartphones on an annual basis. It's like one third, the size from a actually it's less than one third one fifth size from a actually it's less than one fifth to whatever it's a tiny tiny percentage the size of the smartphone market from a sales perspective. And yet, like I said, there are three major PC announcement events every year, there's only really one for smartphones. Not counting. The fact that obviously Samsung an apple big enough, they do. They're on invents. This some innovation occurring here. And one of the neat side effects. You know, we talk a lot about the negative stuff around the not selling as many PC's windows isn't as popular people using phones. But the interesting thing is, there's a positive side effect. All this and the PC it's it as really returned to what it was in the beginning, you know, which is a productivity machine essentially, I'm earliest people use it for gaming etcetera, etcetera. But it's, it's, it's kind of like a purpose driven kind of a device, now and I have to say, I really liked that. It's not getting muddled up with all this other stuff that we do on phones now, right? I don't have to worry about Facebook or Instagram on my PC. I for me. I'm a writer. It's my stuff is its web browser. It's writing utilities. And, and, you know, a graphics editor whatever it's, it's super purpose driven. And if you look at these PC's what you see are mostly premium PC's. They kind of target that kind of a new PC market. It's like the modern PC. It's you know, there's innovation occurring multi-screen folding screen weird, you know, accordion PC from Intel if you saw that was kind of interesting, but it just it seems purposeful, now whereas in the past, you know, windows, eight timeframe those kind of a spouse around on my God. We've got to stop the ipad. You know, we have to turn these things to the tablets, you know, and today, it seems like a little more thoughtful, and I, I, I just I like where the PC's at. And if you, you can see it in, and that list of PC's layover showing that are in the Microsoft post. Who'll I this is like a surface studio, laptop. And they say with one hundred percent at color accuracy, which is pretty cool. Right. So I talked about in the past, but the big thing there is a Acer's customers were coming to it. And saying, look, we're creative professionals. We need a particular kind of computer, but the only computers, you sell that meet, those needs are gaming computers. Right. And they look like boy racer, toys, right call what he was. You know, graphics desires, should I buy a gaming computer?.

"And here's they actually had three separate posts. And this was only one of them in, for some reason they thought to jam it into the middle of two concrete announcements, yes. Strange place evident. But I think that it would be an appropriate post to say, hey, look, we want to throw this out there, because we think we wanted calm, we want to start a conversation about what the perfect operating system would would have. Right. Actually would've been a great way to do that. I like your thinking on that. Because if you did it as this is where we're going in the future. Then again you get into that problem. Ooh. Should I upgrade or not upgrade? Right. But if you just say, we're just thinking at high level about these concepts. I mean, want you guys to weigh in. I suspect that been great. That's also honest in building this, but how they are building. They're building it. Is this the windows? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Definitely pretty. We're building it from the thing is, though, listen, it's, it's the virtuous cycle thing again. Right. So light OS is not a completely new thing. It's still based on the same component is, you know windows system. Whatever there are things that are going to they can bring to light OS that may seem new and exciting. But many of those things are going to be applicable to windows as well. I mean for all of the negatives that surround any classic desktop operating system, complexity and the terribleness of updating and so forth. I mean, there are numerous benefits and for people who do certain things with the computer that type of machine is going to be a necessity forever for them. Right. And that's fine. I mean, you don't have to it doesn't have to be positioned, like we're replacing windows, you know, we're, we're, we're, we're odds are tolls. Yeah. This is what, which is where we would like to take windows. Right. And. And. Ten. Right. And if you could say that some of the things we're coming back to regular windows, ten or that would that would come little look at all that stuff. In other words, it's like how does instant on work on a PC today? Really, right? Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't sometimes it's kind of instant. Sometimes it's like why isn't the thing turn it on, you know, it's, it's, it's a computer. It's a complicated architecture. It's a complicated system. Just doesn't work all the time. The truth. Right. So the goal is always work. I don't think it can work with windows, but maybe it can work with this future thing, which will be simpler and whatever. Right. So they, they haven't even they haven't even described windows core OS publicly yet, but it's going to be the underpinnings. We are strongly confident admitted that exists public. Now they haven't. Scribe it. I've asked people about it, and they're like, yeah, we're not ready to talk about it yet. So they've set it. But not like in a blog poster, formerly or whatever. But I think I think they need to start talking about that, and explain. Okay. This is how we're going to do this. We're gonna take this thing we're going to extend one core. We're going to try to do better with it. We're gonna make the sinkhole windows, Koros them. We're gonna put shells on top of it. You know all the things that we've been writing about that. No one's ever written officially for Microsoft. I think it would go a long way to coming people down. And just say this is where we're going in the future..

"WI fi, and LT, five G, specifically, right. Jay now. Well, maybe that Lenovo device that they wouldn't say which version of windows. In this thing, specifically, these aren't merely enablers. I see in the second paragraph there enablers into lighters. Delight is okay. So that is the one word is delighted Microsoft to note back, what I saw delighted. And I said, and by the way, delight there's not a word. That's awesome. Fun of you for using it. They use the word vision there, which means it's not what we have today, and then for the first time modern is capitalized. Oh, that means it's a property, top is to modern desktop is. But nowhere else in this. Nowhere else. Okay. This doesn't really just really this cruise wrote this. And, and so everyone listening, we're not, we're not being grammar nitpickers here as much as it sounds like we are. We're just trying to say when you read this, you don't know what this is. No. So actually, when we're absolutely not being nitpickers one thing that we have developed a carefully honed skills for because we cover Microsoft is parsing, their language to understand what it is. They're really trying to say now what's beautiful about this is this could very closely. Follow another story that we'll have coming up later about this windows home ultra thing where they could come back later and say, guys guys, we never said anything about another operating system. We're not talking about anything. That's not windows future of windows. Maybe they, they could completely deny this. But here's the thing, I reading this, anyone watching the show should read this. I mean, if you're interested in windows at all, which it seems like you would be why does this say brick wall into my namely? Anyway. Figure out where you are in the only. Geographic feature. I can see servic wall. It's anyway, so I believe I believe in as this parts and opinion for sure, I think this is their first public feeler for what they're planning. And I think it's light OS. I think what they're what they're trying to get into people's ideas. Aheads is the idea that they'll be this other thing that will be a modern take on an operating system, by the way, upper case. Okay. Has said to me or is said, on Twitter, wherever it comments. It sounds like the describing IOS, and that's it has inciteful, because we know from dealing with Terry Meyerson in the past that his plan for the apps store, ecosystem, and everything was not to model Android. Right. But was rather to be more like IRS, and he meant that literally in the good and bad sense. Like he wanted it to be a walled garden protected, you know, locked off and I that's very interesting because if you read it, it's like one of those things change the words, no change it for modern OS to Iowa. And you're like, yeah. This pretty much does bio. It's really a I would say it's a manifest oh for what an operating system should be. I, I don't feel like it's doable me. Neither none of the existing operating system. Clinton chrome OS her. Iowa's to seamless updates with no interruptions, in every case you have to reboot secure by default.

And I thought I would be interested in that if they started from the ground up. You are. They know that would be nice. Well, it's a major taking. But yeah. Now it's not that not that at all, but before we even get into that, I need to rand. Oh. Because it's well it's a rant related to this. Oh, I got the gong ready. Okay. Okay. We're ready. Okay. So Microsoft is that computrac? It's like you're all their PC maker partners. They put out this long blog post talking about all the new PC's that everyone's showing a computrac tes then they throw in this paragraph about a modern OS into it. That's where saw. Yeah. So guys we, we say this windows weekly every week, but can you communicate, please, can you really, really want to tell you how much I enjoy the fact that you're ranting about something that I want a rant about because this is this is absolutely a huge problem the way they did this. They are enabling innovation and opportunity on the intelligent edge the way they did this. And how is so horrible. Well. And they dropped this thing on us last night at eight PM or something, I literally, I looked at it on my phone. I had to install it on my phone. It was too small to read, because it doesn't property stroll around I went by on my computer. I the thing up again. I looked at it. I was like, PCP see mono s IOT, nothing. And so I have forwarded, it some heady, and I said, I don't know if you're around tonight, but if you are look through this CVC anything interesting, it doesn't look like this anything important here. I'll look at it again in the morning. That I looked at it again in the morning and I was like, oh my God. They may have just dropped the first public, hint a outs light OS probably, or whatever we're calling this thing, and here's the well, I wouldn't call it. Right. Yep. Okay. So one is okay. They announce all these PC's at competence with their partners. And they're all running windows, ten some running probably eighteen three some eighteen o nine maybe some even nineteen three and then they start talking about this aspirational idea of, here's where we'd like to take our operating system platform in the future. So, none of those PC's that are shown are running this. That's right. Right. And they probably will not be great. In fact, all of those PC's are premium computers. They are they're going to be running advanced versions of windows, ten right? You to get this is a I broke this Leo's living in can't say it on the text of the thing. I broke this down in my article because this is I often use this as a joke, but it is particularly publ in this case, if you were to push this through word and ask it to summarize it. It would come up with a blank page. It says nothing the first sentence isn't even grammatical these new modern PC's and innovative devices, the ecosystem will continue to build and bring to market in the future. Oh, comma, require a modern operating system, but eventually get it. They're getting so. So that's, that's the premise is, these are great, new PC's, which require a modern operating system, not the one, they're running. Yeah, but we wish he knows because the very first neighbor, they discuss is seamless updates that are done invisibly in the background with a deterministic, reliable and instant. No interruptions, right. Okay. So a couple more points, Microsoft uses the word modern just helter skelter throughout their world. Like windows, modern has had the modern you. I write windows, eight apps where modern right for metro for about ten minutes. The metro design language at one point was called modern, I believe, right?.

Of course, the wildcat was a term one year gay manager was a term one year things. Just like you get a little you get comfortable with the phrase, and you continue to use it the term right now. Of course, we've had load management was a big win this year in the NBA the one we're dealing with right now. We'll last series. It was top locking with the LA clippers. And now, we're dealing with the landing spot the landing spot is now going to be the theme at least until they played team to tomorrow night. So what we're talking about is whether or not these things should be called fouls. When a joke shooter goes up comes down in a spot that maybe wasn't necessarily the same spot. He took off from and what the responsibility of the defensive player is he allowed to move laterally towards the the player who's taken the jump shot as he allowed to come down in the in a similar spot. Does the jump shooter has to contorts his body to get out of the way of the defender. And if so is that a foul, I think those are really mad. It does matter because the Houston Rockets are complaining about it. So let's let's break this down for just a minute. I wanna make a couple of points about a few things here. The Houston Rockets losing this game by four and my dantonio had coach after the game said that at halftime the officials told them. Hey, we missed four calls. We missed a handful of calls and he's saying, hey, if you're going to tell me that too that means there are free throws that we should be having right there at the low. I mean, my my. My assumption or my feeling about this is figuring tell me you miss calls. That's like an empire saying, hey, you know, what I blew a couple of those balls and strikes calls, you probably should have had a few more guys on base. When that dude hit the home run. It's almost like you've earned something here that an official has completely botched completely avoided or not called then he realizes after. Yeah. You know, maybe maybe I did sort of boxed that one. Or maybe I did make a mistake on that one in basketball that directly affects how many points you may have. It's the one game where I can put you at the line with the ball and say here's a couple of free points for your team because of the foul committed by the opposition. So the Antoni was not irate after the game. He gave a comment about we've got to look in the mirror. We've got to figure out what we can do better talking about. How he maybe? He agreed. I think with some of the media questions about whether or not nation have been on the floor at the end there with forty seconds left trailing. And he's out there guarding Steph and Steve Kerr made a comment that at this point of the season in the NBA playoffs when? You've got five guys on the floor. You just are sort of having your guys guard whoever the opposition wants them to guard because you're going to go with your best five guys. They're going to go with their best five and whoever they can guard us whoever they can guard. That's just the situation you're in at that point. Now when it comes to committing these fouls or whether or not these were fouls after the game. Whether or not you agree with what Houston's been saying that they were getting officiated differently. And I don't agree, by the way. I I'm not gonna stand here and say sit here and say that Houston had some major disadvantage in this game. I think the Dame was called pretty consistently though. I will agree that a couple of the calls. The Houston is upset about. We're probably fouls. I know people are upset with the Chris Paul won the technical foul. The first one in my mind, that's a foul the Shaun Livingston bleeping at M M B, and I got into a heated debate about fifteen minutes ago in the bullpen where I did. We did a freeze frame by frame of Chris Paul going taking the shot. You can see shod Livingston's feet come down behind Chris Paul. He's not directly. Under him. But in my mind, he's changed Chris Paul shot enough to where he's invaded his landing spot. And he's committed a foul because Chris Paul does not have the right to where he went up and came back down on now when you flop and Chris Paul did flop on that play. You lose a whole lot of credibility in my mind. If you flop I think, you should be less likely to get called you should be less likely to to to get the foul called in your favor that said, it's probably still a foul. Now, you've got players from the Utah Jazz Rudy Gobert was check it in yesterday on Twitter Jared deadly the nets a lot of players who team seasons are now over of course, watching what everybody's anticipated to be the almost the pseudo Western Conference final between the rockets and the warriors, and they were checking in and Ruediger bare said, hey, my guys in the last round against the rockets were not allowed to close out and defend that aggressively. And then Donovan Mitchell, the young guard for the jazz re tweeted and said, why don't you just give me the twenty five thousand if you've got a complaint about the refs on Twitter. Just throw the cash. My way 'cause you're probably going to get fined anyway, Jared Dudley. The nets went as far as soon as look I don't think anybody deserves to get a foul called when you flop, but that's a foul the Shaun Livingston running by people. I it's polarizing people feel differently about it believe it was a foul. The second one at the end of the ballgame. And Chris Paul gets called when he's trying to throw the ball away. I don't totally agree with that. I do think James harden might have been affected a little bit by the Klay Thompson contact at the top of the key on the the attempted three that did not go in. But you can also look at that. And just say him, and you didn't even get that good of a look at it. There was a guy right in your face. You heaved a three with multiple seconds on the clock. And did not go your way ball gets tossed out of bounds. And the rest is history. Warriors, get the the technical foul and the knock down the free throw to win it. So from the side of the of the Houston Rockets where you lose this game. You feel like it was a -ficiating in a way that was not in your favor. They've been very. It's a word. I'm looking for. They've been political with how they've gone about talking about the officials because they have not called out officials. Exactly, they have not said, hey, this guy botched this call right here. Chris Paul went as far to say, hey, I got to be better. I can't be getting tech new thousand getting ojected from the game almost putting it on himself saying I've got to be better for my teammates. Now, they're upset about the way some of these calls have gone gone down. But they're going about it in the way that the warriors went about it during the first round against the clippers. And that is to contact the league and say, hey, look at all this video that we have of Pat Beverley pushing and pulling and tugging and shoving on Steph curry, you guys have got to keep it out of it. So at the very least here, I think the rockets have now called attention or spotlighted something that is going to be a theme throughout the rest of this series. And that's that it's going to be physical. It's going to be aggressive. These benches are going to get smaller and smaller as we get near the end of this series. But this is only the beginning in my mind. This thing is not going to go away. Anytime soon, by the way, we didn't even mention the Friday night. This is how how intense game one was even mentioned, by the way warriors advanced past the first round of the Western Conference playoffs after fifty point performance from Kevin Durant. Put it out read from the clippers on Friday night warriors less than forty eight hours later, come back to oracle and the beat the rockets who are already sitting in their living room with their feet up waiting for him to get here. And and they stuck it to him. So hey last week. I made a point I made a sort of a plea to to Steve Kerr, San hey, man. You can't be playing these starters like thirty three thirty four thirty five minutes any Kevin Durant out there for forty plus last night, forty three minutes from Kevin Durant. He goes thirty five points, three assists, five rebounds. He may be the hottest streak we've ever seen him on as a member of the warriors. I say that sort of just because I I'm being a victim of the moment here with how much a Kevin Durant. Spent successful since the eight shot performance in game two of round one. When everybody kinda lost their heads, saying, hey. He's he's not locked in. He doesn't want. It that bad. I said do just like Kevin Durant. Kevin durant? And what did he say, David? Kevin Durant attacking me Celeste. I thirty five points to lead all warriors scores. He goes twelve or fifteen from the line was a great note here, by the way from Anthony Slater, saying, you know, we talked about how aggressive he's been in people want to say, well, he's dishing too much. He's not getting to the rim. Nobody said anything about that. By the way in the last five games that he's played. But Kevin Durant. Attempted fifteen free throws yesterday. He's taken seventy four this entire postseason Hughley averaged six and a half free throws a game in the regular season. He's averaging ten and a half a game right now in the postseason. He's taking over Kevin Durant right now, maybe at the prime and the peak of his career. He's making sure the warriors are going to have a damn good shot didn't back to the Western Conference. Who is he? Kevin durant? All right. We've got some great sound from yesterday's post game. We haven't even had to mention the giants getting swept out of oracle part of it was not good. Derek rodriguez. Did not have it yesterday. We'll get into some of that the sharks tied one one and their series in the as take another sweep at the hands of the Blue Jays the one team. The giants can beat the Toronto Blue Jays. The as can't figure them out swept twice in the last two weeks by that team. We got some great sound, Mike Keown, Tony Steve Kerr. And James harden, San all I'm saying is give me a chance all we're saying. Dave is give James harden a chance Draymond green was not having it with that comment

"To distract from the fact that President Trump broke his core. Promise tap, Mexico. Pay for the wall. It would be another demonstration of president. Trump's naked contempt for the rule of law and congressional authority. Congress just debated. This very issue. There was not support for the president's position. Congressional intent on this issue is very clear. The president's wall has been before congress several times and has never garnered enough votes to even merit consideration. So there's Chuck Schumer just a short time ago on the floor of the Senate. What else has Chucky saying the president to declare an emergency? Now would be an unprecedented. Subversion of Congress's constitutional prerogatives. The fact of the matter is this is not an emergency. And the president's fearmongering doesn't make it one. The gloves are coming off. This is going to be fascinating to watch this. And not just the Democrats are a hundred percent predictable. It's going to be Senate Republicans. That's what's going to be interesting to watch. Again. What Rubio does what rand Paul does what ROY blunt does? That's gonna be interesting to watch to see what occurs John Cornyn, another one. But I say rand Paul. It's it's going to be interesting to see what they actually do because they have not been happy about the prospect of a declaration of a national emergency. Chucky anymore. Babble. Policy dispute about our southern border. Does not constitute a national emergency Democrats support and have always supported strong border security. But the fact is according to the CDP apprehensions at our southern border are at historic lows. So he thinks it's illegal and Trump couldn't convince Mexico. He couldn't convince the American people he couldn't convince their elected representatives to pay for his ineffective and expensive wall. So now, he's trying an end run around congress in a desperate attempt to put taxpayers on the hook for it. Make no mistake. Congress will defend our constitutional authorities in every way that we can yield the floor. This has gotta get ugly. Again, we know what Democrats going to do question. Mark. What will Republicans do with this national emergency declaration? Mitch McConnell was against it before he was Ford. Grab your favorite beverage and watch eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine that's the number here on Schmidt. You wanna get on your thoughts? Your thoughts on the national emergency declaration from the president. Again. I don't support idle want the national emergency emergency declaration much more in favor of.

Speaking to the Senate earlier today William bar was confirmed fifty four to forty five so William bar Bill bar is now the new attorney general of the United States acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker says by by of course, Jeff Sessions said bye bye. That's why we're in this the situation. With the need for new attorney general. So it's a done deal. Fifty four to forty five yet three Democrats that cross voted with Republicans. You had that very interesting. Kristen cinema from Arizona voted for bar. You had Alabama Senator Doug Jones the democrat voted for Bill bar and you had West Virginia. Senator Joe Manchin also voted for Bill bar, and of course, with Bill bar as the new attorney general he now assumes, and he is the boss of the Muller investigation. So what happens there, another grab your beverages and watch from the sidelines Vokes? Go through the list here of wow, what needs to be done today. And I'm just talking to have enough time to get the everything. But I wanna lightning round a few things. I've got to more. I I got I had three of these really kind of, you know, don't be items.

"On morning long to save. This Paul finebaum on the phone. And if you follow our show, if you follow ESPN, you know, the Paul finebaum is the mouth of the south. No one knows the SEC conference better than Paul does Paul as you wake up this morning. What in the world happened last night to Alabama? And what did it mean? I think what happened was that? Nick saving was as badly outcoached as any game. I can ever remember him being in it Alabama. And that even includes his first year when he barely had a winning record, greedy. And what it means? I think is is the more Beck seen question. I know a lot of people today will will rush to judgement, and that's understandable. When you when you see an epic beatdown on the biggest stage in the game. I'm not quite ready to do that. But, but I, but I have to caution who thinks that Alabama will automatically be back next year because they're Alabama the same logic went into thinking Alabama would be Clemson because they're they're ala. Bama, I was one of those by the way, I was wrong and many others were as well. So I wouldn't be very careful because I've watched history covered the end the bear Bryant it ended badly. I'm not suggesting that greenie not at all. But but the competition the SEC is getting more problematic for Nick Sabin, especially with some of his disciple. Does like JIMBO Fisher AM. And of course, Kirby smarter, Georgia LSU seems to be sending Dan Mullen has or so. Savings issue. Really isn't Clemson. I it's it's the SEC in getting out of the Clemson will get their next year because there's no one in the ACC that can stop them this both of big picture and the little picture to this. I wanna go a little picture one more time quickly, though when you say he was out coached last night. A lot of people will look at that fake field goal and describe it as Sabin being out coach perhaps Sabin panicking in a moment where he felt his team was in trouble. What did you think of that play in? What did it mean? Well, he has been successful in the past the onside kick a couple years ago that won the game against Clemson. He's at other daring decisions. But but this was this was a panic. It wasn't necessary for this reason he has so many talented weapons on in his backfield from wide receiver to running back that he should have trusted them might not doing. So he was he was just going for broke something that we saw Kirby smart doing the SEC championship game. I understand the urgency. But but but I think he threw the game away right there. I'm not saying that could've come back. But there was no chance after that. And I don't know if I've ever seen anything quite like that in and I'll usually he has been successful. I think that's a play that he has not running a long time, and it just blew up on him. But, but, you know, remember something else. My I mean, Nick Sabin his top ten in position. He's coached from double digit deficits such as last year thirteen to Georgia. He he was on the verge getting blown out in the SEC championship game. Remember Jordan is the field. Go that would've put them up seventeen. This is not his specialty this his wheelhouse coaching from behind. So I think he flat out blew that one. What does all of this mean now, Paul fine for the balance of power in college football? I understand your bigger picture point. Which is that the SEC is more media problem. But as we all step back nationally and look at what Clemson is now done to him twice in the last four years and the one sided nature of last night. What does that mean for the balance of power at the top of college football right now, I paradigm shift. You cannot deny with clemes has done. Not only people went to the last four. I thought Ryan made a good point earlier at yet Alabama denied on the opportunity from the championship game. So they're fairly even on that front, but look at these programs. Clemson continues to ascend and the domination. I mean, they beat the two biggest names in college football Notre Dame in Alabama. And they this rated the two of them in ways that I didn't think was possible..

Is it true that Antonio Brown has gone to the Steelers and requested a trade out of town? Well, I know that was reported by. CBS? Been able to confirm that with anyone just yet.

What what Jason report would that be a massive surprise to you? If in fact, it was true. No. Listen all Antonio. Have had their problems going back to mini camp in June. There's been something. All season long. There was the incident in Florida where the the furniture was thrown off his balcony. He's been feuding worst-ever office burger on and off throughout the year. His office of.

What's transpired with Steelers over the last year or so Dr Martavis Bryant in the way, he was able to sources way out of Pittsburgh Antonio that entire situation develops. So he probably feels that he could do the same. In your opinion. What is the big beef with Ben if there's one, oh, how would you pinpoint it? No, I don't know what the situation is. I mean, we reported in Pittsburgh post gazette. There was a little flare up at at a Wednesday walks. Federal office went on his radio show on New Year's day and said he talked to Antonio on Thursday morning. And he thought everything was good. The MVP team MVP vote came along.

So people were you know, adding to two together. Believe me he's upset Jim. Juju being named MVP. But we haven't heard any told me story. So we'll have to wait to hear from him. Whenever that is. I have to ask though, considering the magnitude of week seventeen as much as the Steelers could control he goes AWOL in the days before that how does that play with his teammates who understand his value in his talent? And yet here he is putting himself above whatever priorities the team as yeah. Yeah. They were just shocked. Yeah. There are some longtime professionals as you know, that's a very veteran. Walker? Lot of wine. You know, some of those guys have been playing together tab two thousand eleven two thousand twelve the majority of that offense of wine is put together. For almost a decade now. So. Like that. So there are I'm sure they're just looking at each other saying boy, you know, what's going on here. You know, we're trying. To get into the playoffs. And this guy's while showing up for work. So does have some. Lauko but his behavior in the past week. I think really damage who smothers Rafit appalled. Oh covers the Steelers and the NFL with us here after hours on CBS sports radio. So the the headline that is on your story on on Tuesday. New Year's day is have the Steelers reached their breaking point within Tonio Brown. So Ray have they I it is there really an easy answer to this. I don't know. But have they reached that point? Well, I think this is by far the worst thing that he's done. You know, I think people will remember the Facebook live video after the playoff winning Kansas. He was fine for that. But. You played the next week in the AFC championship game. So. This feels different Amy. This feels like something that is going to be hard to get to get over for for for both sides. But I don't know what the in as either he's under contract for three more years. To him. He will twenty one million dollars against their salary cap in two thousand eighteen no matter what. So there's just no really easy solution to this. But best case scenario for both sides of the. Sort kissing make up, but given what's transpired here in the last four or five days, I think that's going to be hard to do. What's your reaction to Ben's? Glowing comments about in Tonio brownies weekly appearance on 93.7 the fan. Yeah. I mean, listen. They've done this before they got into it earlier and to see her. I think it was after the Denver game. When on Tonio ran the wrong route in the end zone to thebenz specifications. And he was called off by the quarterback and shoot over that. But they made up and this has been going on for years now. So. Can't happen again. Yeah. Guess. As I said this this. Somebody others. All right. Just to clarify. Right. Do you believe that Ben is being genuine insincere when he praises Antonio and says he'd welcome back. I do. Listen, they have their problems. There is no denying that. Such a dynamic duo for so long out there. You know, their statistics. The foraging hall of fame careers together. Really? One two Super Bowls before Tokyo came along. But he didn't have the Paschal success statistical success until ABC did get trapped in two thousand ten so. Is it going to be difficult? Yeah. It's going to be difficult. But I do think it's something they could work through. Really committed to it. Paul do of the Pittsburgh post gazette with happy new year for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Oh my goodness. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. So the Antonio Brown questions still needs to be answered we'll hear from coach Tomlin coming up on Wednesday. But there are other questions that need to be answered about the Steelers in the off season. And the big one that still looms there is on Belle. Are we any closer to knowing how the Steelers will handle their superstar running back? Feeling tells me they're just going to let him go. Ho sign with another team. If that happens will be happy to compensatory traffic in return. In april. They have the option to transition. But given all the issues that are going on right now with Antonio Brown and everything really that they've been going through for more than two years now on I think they're just gonna. Let that go. Let the contract expire and hopefully a free agent March. And you know, he'll he'll get what he wants. I, you know. The highest bidder will give us a he. I think that's what he's one. When you look at the the Steelers finished the season. And I know they beat Cincinnati. But before that losing four of five, of course missing out on the play offs. What do you think were the the biggest issues for the team this year Ray? Just turn over to anybody offense not left by the defense of Ben Rothlisberger. Led the league with sixteen interceptions. Their defense. Will create any. Was just a constant for them all season. And they were just in too many close games and back on two thousand seventeen they won those close games. Way to lose him. Okay. This may be a question that is the obvious answer to you to people in Pittsburgh. But for the rest of the nation is there any chance at all to the make a coaching change. I don't think. So I I walk going on right now. And it looks really bad from the outside. But if you go back and look at the Rooney family's history with their head coaches Bill Kollar missed the playoffs for three consecutive years. They signed him to a new deal if the end of that stretch, and they were in the AFC championship. Just a couple of years later. So I think we'll stick with Mike in the situation. I think they're very well could be other changes in other things could be coming on defense. But I do still step. Step with my call and see if he could write out this this rough patch that he's going through right now. So that doesn't change what else changes. Well, I mean, I I met some some possibly some some changes on defense share with what the coaching staff. Personnel wise, they're gonna hassle salary cap space. It's not their MO to go. They took a free agents. They're you know, they're more inclined to decide their own free agents. And. You know, we talked a little bit about Ben Rothlisberger. He's up for a new deal. After the two thousand nineteen season. So you gotta take care of him. Take care of some others. I don't think there's going to be a lot of change. I think they still believe they have talent on this roster. There's no doubt the window is starting to close. So they're going to have to get this done soon. So I don't expect major changes. But I I do expect a few tweaks along the way. To see if they can get this turned around for next fall. And definitely a long off season for the members of that locker room to stew over what went wrong, you can find Ray on Twitter at Rafit F. I T t one Rafit appalled. Oh covers the Steelers and the NFL for the Pittsburgh post Gazette's, lots of question marks around the Steelers. Thanks so much for hanging out with us for a couple of minutes. Trying to answer them. Thanks for having me on. So Mike Tomlin remains if you're looking for a coaching change there in Pittsburgh. That's not likely to happen though. Could it be the end of both L and AB problem is Antonio Brown will cost the Steelers a lot of money. No matter what. All right. We got one hour. Dow, thanks for joining us. Happy new year after hours on CBS sports radio..
