But as you keep going, going to the Richmond San Rafael bridge 5 80 westbound, there's a stalled car in the middle lane, there really aren't any reports from CHP, but I think it's starting to open up.

Save up to 50% on select mattresses during the Mancini sleep world mattress close out sail. Kcbs news time to 20 while a viral tweet from a restaurant worker recently ignited a debate around chipping. New York based waitress tweeted that they hated Europeans sometimes after a group of customers left a 10% tip on a $700 meal. They do things differently in Europe. So here to help us navigate the ever confusing question of how much to tip, we're joined on the case CBS RingCentral newsline by Jamie Peters, assistant dean of finance at Mary bell university. Thanks for joining us. Hello. So let's start in the Bay Area with restaurants. Some of them there's been talk of maybe we should do it like a lot of Europe does it, which is just tack on a 20% service fee and then no one has to do the tip. What do you think? I think it's actually a really difficult question, especially if you're in California. If you read national coverage of tipping, the problem is that there is a slightly different situation in California than most places. Most places in the United States allow tips employees such as waitresses and waiters to get paid $2 and 13 cents an hour. And as a result, those tips are the majority of their wage. In California though, a new law has tipped employees still getting paid the same 1550 minimum wage that everybody in the state is receiving. So it becomes a situation where the compensation is significantly different in your home state of California than where you will read in the mass market media. And then throw in on top of that, I hear that sometimes in the restaurant, you know, you have the cooks in the back and the dishwashers and the bus people and then you have the front of the house and the wait staff, so I don't even know if it's case by case that the tips get divided up equally or not shared. What you're talking about is tip pooling and it is legal in California to continue to do tip pooling under the new law. And so it does happen, but it is a restaurant by restaurant manager by manager decision about whether or not that is going to happen at that particular restaurant. All right, and now we go and we pick up our coffee, maybe we texted ahead of time and we go and we pick it up and we have the option right there as we're Tapping our card as many of us do. Oh, would you like to put a tip on top of that 5, 6, $7 coffee? What do we do? I know that is actually really difficult. So this happened starting basically in the pandemic, right? So people started tipping in unusual places because small businesses weren't having their normal sit down restaurant type things. So we were starting to attempt delivery people going and picking up your food. You should not be a tipping situation. Now it appears to be because of the way the credit card companies change the tipping situation. So the reality is, is that most people, your coffee, it's hot, it's great for a dollar, be happy. But it is not a mandatory thing at this point. In fact, study is showing that about only about 50% of people actually go ahead and click a button and tip it in that situation. Let's talk about haircuts. Men and women and it seems like most of us get haircuts from time to time, how much should we be tipping on something like that? So there are different scenarios. So a 20% tip is very typical understand that most hairdressers end up renting their chair and often get a hair cutting place just a large chunk of what they charge you for the haircut and where they make most of their good money is through the tips just like a waiter and a waitress. So those caches are hugely appreciated by your hairdresser. It's going to get you in when you're the last minute type of person calling. They're going to reserve those spots because they control their scheduling a lot of time if you're the good tipper. Taxi Uber Lyft how much do we tip there? That one's a little bit difficult, typically between ten and 20%. And if we're seeing in a hotel, somewhere in the United States, what do we leave for housekeeping and the person who may be halts our luggage up to our room So luggage has gone up to about two to $5 a bag.

When you said the number two hundred but it didn't happen. I'm sorry malfunctioned at the air. Horn button primary primarily. Thank you all for tuning into this. Two hundred episode of you're here with us We have just around the corner. An apple event apple sent out. Its invites for california's streaming We will be petaluma stream in the event on tuesday as well so you'll be able to tune into that at the time but With an upcoming apple event comes questions of what apple may announce. And so who better to talk to us today than max stories. Own john voorhees. Welcome i believe for the first time to the show. John it is my first time. Thanks for having me. It's wonderful to be here. Yes we are pleased to get you on the show Max stories is prolific in its content creation. And i think In particular the lead up to What's going on at this event. So typically this. September event is the time when apple announces new iphones and also gives us some indication of when we're likely to see the next version of the operating systems that it rolled out or at announced rather during the summer It tells us when we're supposed to get those. But let's start with the iphone What are kind of the more solid rumors. What are the less solid rumors. And maybe even what are you hoping to see out of the iphone. Be at thirteen or iphone next. What what what's going on here. It'll be interesting to see what they call this. I think it'll be a thirteen. And i think we'll see i think we'll see the trend continue of four different phones the thirteen and then a larger and smaller version of the thirteen and then a pro version larger and smaller. I bank every year on a new processor. Something better faster. You know that uses less battery as well as camera improvements which typically are a combination of both you know new sensors lenses combined with software that allows you to do. New new kinds of computational photography. So i think those things are kind of a lock for this year along with. I don't think we're gonna see this year a redesign. It's not a year. When i think we'll see significant changes in the way. The phones look. But i wouldn't be surprised if we did. We did get an always on display. That's something that it's been rumored at and it's something that i'd really like to see because you know the apple's had several years of working on the apple watch and they recently added the always on display for the apple. Watch and why not bring that. Which to the iphone which also has an old display and allow people to display the time. The weather maybe their calendar task lists that kind of thing so they always have that with them without having to unlock the phone. That would be interesting and always on display for the iphone and yeah we definitely Do we know colors rethinking. They've done the green. Which was my frame sat. It's gone and they've done the blue. This is for the pro model Always you know Or more often. They're more colors available for the non-pro model. Do we think there's gonna be a pro color this year. That's different from the green. And the blue. I feel like they're running out of pro colors so i kind of wish they would they would. They would get away from the muted tones with the pro models. I made i. I think people use pro phones want bright vibrant colors as much as anybody else so i'd like to see the color options just expand across the line. Why not let some of those protesters trickle down to the non-pro model and then have more bright colors on the on the to. That would be really nice. i'm in that camp for sure so stepping outside of iphone for a minute. Let's talk about what other hardware could be announced at this event There have been all sorts of different rumors for what could be there but Let's stick with a solid ones. Starting out what do we. What are we pretty much thinking where we can expect to see it. This iphone event. Yeah i think the apple watch is kind of a lock for this event. I mean what's interesting. This year is that there appears to be a lot of hardware ready to go inside of cupertino and it's just a question of how much is going to be released. And when and i don't think we're gonna see everything this event i think it's gonna get spread out. I mean last year there were three events in a matter of weeks. It was absolutely bananas. We were very busy at max stories. But i do think the apple watch is definitely a higher. You know a likely unlikely piece of hardware coming out next week so that you know we'll see we'll see what that is. I kind of feel like the apple. Watch is getting to a point of maturity where there aren't there isn't as much a low hanging fruit that apple can pick off in terms of both software and the sensors. That's why i think the rumors of a redesign pretty solid. I think we're going to see the apple. Watches looked essentially the same since the series zero came out. So i wouldn't be surprised if we see a different look this year. Yeah i'm right there with you on that. I'm interested to see what we get an older bands going to fit it or not If this would be the first shift for that if that did take place. And i think some people particularly friend of the show rene ritchie would be a little put out by The the band's change his collection proclivities Let's talk about audio because there are. There have been some rumors of us seeing some audio products at this event. What what are we thinking there. We think apple going to announce airports. I think so i mean it seems like a natural fit with both the apple watch and the iphone because those are obviously the devices use airplanes with a lot of the time and the air pods three. The the base model air have been rumored for quite a while. Now i'm not. I'm not entirely sure what we're gonna see on that front. Though i mean i think one option is a redesign of the head the your pods themselves. So that there. Maybe they fit a little better than your ears. I've always thought that those those hard shell air pods are a little uncomfortable. When worn for a long period of time. i also wouldn't be surprised if the maybe the stem shortened up a little bit and maybe got some better battery life but they're still needs to be some sort of differentiation between those air pods and the pros. So i'm not really. I'm not really expecting to see things like noise. Cancellation on on an updated. Air pods three. Yeah it'll be interesting. I agree with you on the firmness. They can get uncomfortable in the ear. Well then outside of that any other things that are maybe have been considered to be at this event but butter. Maybe you're saying..

Because i brought you in to talk about Apple and its plans for Allowing reader apps to link to their sites. But before we get to that. I think it's good to kind of establish a little bit of Of the environment right now and what's going on apple when it comes to the app store that could actually talk before that about apple's decisions when it comes to how it settled the class action lawsuit with developers sure. Yeah so apple got a it was involved in this class action lawsuit which is brought by a certain group of and essentially these developers were alleging that some of the ways to apple does businesses. Not exactly fair. So apple decided to settle this case. Obviously the developers agreed to that potentially in large part because chances of beating apple in a straight courtroom case was not going to work very well and so as a result they gained what i think. A lot of media companies framed sort of concessions from apple but which actually turned out to be things that were more like. Well we'll we're doing things this way and we promise we'll keep doing them this way for at least a little while. So there were very few actual changes to the policies. As a result of that. I think the biggest that sort of came out of it was there was one about letting developers use more price points Essentially being able to set their prices at more levels than apple had given the option before which is good for developers but also not bad for apple because apple still makes the cut no matter what that price point is

And and by the way i've followed so many of those kids through their college careers Getting drafted into pro baseball. And i grant you there could be twelve guys on a team in one guy actually becomes a college star but the point is is that it's just fun to watch these kids especially when they get to that age.

Eighteen was arrested immediately next month pled guilty in march to a federal charge of conspiracy five years in federal prison as he. He's gonna have to deal with this for the rest of their lives joke. We've had deaths like this before. Or maybe it's not federal. I'm just saying okay let me see. I don't want to go onto the nice prison. I won't going regular jail. Man they want county jail. I'm thinking it's a federal offense but I don't actually. I don't see that. So yeah the unfortunately the kid who made the call. It will never probably never be known because he was a minor. It's not the first time somebody's died from a swatting attack. It's a terrible thing to do it. you tousands seventeen. Some guy was even worse because they swatted the wrong address. And some some guy who comes out having no idea what's going on and shot straight through the chest swatting serious business and this is getting people killed. Don't get me started on american police procedures. But in this case it wasn't a shooting case it was a heart attack and even silent was just heartrending. when we got swatted.

Your mother are you seeing her bill gently nods and closes his eyes when he leaves the room to call Bill's wife. She hopes she can arrange a short visit for the couple to say goodbye. Until recently. The hospital didn't allow family even at the end, and this really bothers Weber. Thank God. It's not what itwas but it's still horrible. The hospital just started allowing visitors for non covert patients for 6 to 8 months. It was AH hard, no They were not letting anyone in Kenneth Newton didn't get to say goodbye to his mom. He lives in Petaluma. His mom developed cancer while she was living in a nursing home in Tennessee. His mother was alone in a room as her health declined, who was delivered to them and someone to make sure she took her pills. Newton and his four siblings called regularly And then last January, they got the dreaded call back. His mom died at 92 without any family. My mom didn't die of covert but coded, not make my mom's You know, Last year's good she was by herself, and you know, I don't think this is how it's supposed to be. The family hasn't planned a memorial that hasn't felt safe to travel. Usually families grieve together. Instead, they're on the phone talking about their mom's estate. Yeah, the things that kind of make you feel worse. In some ways, you know the things that you feel guilty about. He doesn't want to talk about his mom's stuff. Newton wants closure and I could say goodbye. Yet we're supposed to cry with everyone around us, right? We're supposed to cry. Seeing heartbreak like Newton's over and over is why clinicians are starting to question the strict restrictions that kept families apart. At her hospital.

"Happy Birthday Week. While we're all at home in the new normal feeling anything but normal the one thing worth celebrating life itself the pandemic has shown us just how fragile and beautiful life is the veneer of invincibility that we built up over. The last decades has been stripped away in an instant. We're now learning what we always have known but not acted upon which is the each day's precious and magical and that we can't take anything most especially health and the health of our planet for granted in that spirit of adventure. There's one place in San Francisco I've been trying to explore for nearly twenty years. The remote Farallon islands thirty miles off the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. You can see this. Cluster of three main islands from the shore. But here's the catch. They closed to the public. Because the farallones one of the largest seabird colonies in the nation the islands also hosts two seals great white sharks and many different species of whale. The farallon islands national wildlife refuge is one of sixty three such refugees around the country and the waters surrounding. The islands are protected as part of the great farallones National Marine Sanctuary for decades point Blue Conservation Science Petaluma based research organization whose mission is to conserve birds wildlife and ecosystems through innovative science partnerships and outreach his continuously had teams of scientists located on the Farallon's point blue has a formal research agreement with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Every few weeks point blue works with local boat owners who volunteer to resupply the Farallon scientists with food. I was lucky enough to tag along for the ride. I get on the boat. The outer limits in Sao Salida and we begin our journey. I'm joined by Pete Wolsey Buck who's point blue's senior marine ecologist and spent more time on the islands than anyone else on the planet while still on the boat. I stopped by asking Pete. Exactly how long point blue has been conducting research on the Pharisees? Yeah point blue has been working out on the fare lawns for more than fifty years We've had people on the island every single day since April Third Ikin. Sixty eight which is crazy. And it's just hard to believe that this fat much data scientific data going all the way back to the sixties. It is pretty incredible. There are not very many Continuous long term data sets especially for seabird monitoring throughout the world and the have one in an area special is a fair launch is in an incredible opportunity. And if you know this pizza I've been trying to get to the farallones like twenty two. It's a big deal super foggy today at does it. I don't know hopefully the Fogle if you've been out here a long time once you once you bet I think most times the fog lists sometimes mid to late morning But we have a lot of very very few days out of the airlines. The combination of the cold ocean water and warmer temperatures on the mainland tends to lead to fog out at the highlands. And you could have days when you get out there to the islands can't even see it until he could get on land. I mean yeah we like now maybe half a mile and I'd just just saw and it's pretty mad. I mean it's magical. They just kind of jot. How of the Pacific do you remember? First time seeing the farallones I do. I was going out. This was in the spring of two thousand. I was going out as a volunteer research. Assistant and We were on a long slow boat ride on a very rough day and We started sailing at about midnight. We got to the island about seven. Am and shortly. After the Sun was rising I started to see the islands poking up over the horizon and it was just an incredibly magical site by still remember a Dan. I still have the image in my head. Yeah it's it does feel like the mist of Avalon where the knights of King Arthur would like see. The Misr is and it kind of reminds me of some magical place. How the hell do we get from this big bill up on the cliffs above us it? It looks like a treacherous. I mean what? What's the procedure? It is rather complicated So the islands themselves are very rocky. There's no safe place to land a boat Island just kind of jumped right out of the ocean as you were saying so what we do. Is we have a crane. That's on the east side of the island and we use that to lower small landing craft into the ocean and that will drive out our boat and then from there it will shuttle the people and gear back and forth between the island and the the vote. That's burning us out here. The boat look Mike Below as like his has made out of metal. I've never seen like such a small wise. The vote metal Yeah Orlando Craft is what's called a safe vote and it's a solid aluminum hull with the flotation of styrofoams flotation secured. Around the outside of it. So it's a very sturdy boat and you can imagine when you're lifting it up out of the water with your in it or people in it And and you're moving it back and forth in his rough environment. You want very sturdy boat. So we're we're very happy to have it for them but then it looks like we have to be light. Lifted like fifty feet in the air. Which I've I've presumed that we're going to be in the boat. When that happens. It looks terrifying. Oh It's definitely unique and You know if you're afraid of heights it could be terrifying but now you tell me I I will assure you. It's all very safe You know we've been doing it this way for a very long time going into a little cove. You're going to hook the vote onto this crane and then you're gonNA lifted about thirty feet up in the air and swinging it over landing so it is a very unique and interesting way to use a boat.

"Today is Wednesday March Eleventh Twenty Twenty and this is your host Steven Novella joining me this week or Bob Novella. Everybody Cara Santa Maria. Addy Jane Avella. Hey guys and Evan Bernstein. Good evening folks. So it's official the World Health Organization who has declared a worldwide pandemic. Welcome APPS. Well yeah we were. Just I mean we were at this point. We were there just still. It's a milestone only. It is at some point like it's like a certificate you would put on your kids wall. I survived the pandemic t shirt when he wanted story. It's only the third time right. You got the Spanish flu in the late. Nineteen we have the wealth twenty eleven and this burglar twenty eleven. No it was a big enough current pandemics HIV AIDS in Corona virus recent pandemics include nineteen eighteen influenza and the two thousand nine flu pandemic. You're right Steve H. One and one bird flu right or is that swine flu swine flu swine flu and then HIV AIDS. Though it is a global pandemic. It's been categorized. Okay all right we're will make sense. It makes sense so thousand case three thousand cases in the US. Italy is you know they're in the middle. I think of their epidemic China's on the other side of their heirs right. We're just gearing up so now we're in. The phase of social distancing is kind of the word of the day for the US so you know events are being canceled left and right no non essential travel. People are starting to talk about taking their kids out of schools now ours our high school. They're basically gearing up there sending emails out saying that you may have to shut down. We haven't decided yet. But this is what we're GonNa do if we do. And there's sort of laying out the plan threes and it seems inevitable. A lot of colleges are saying we're doing all online classes for the rest of the semester. I'm lucky that I go to school. That's mostly online anyway so I feel like my professors are really prepared. They know what to do. They've been really up to date with everything getting the emails out about plans for in person meetings but I feel bad for a lot of the professors who have never taught online before because it's a totally different skill set and you have to know what to do. Yeah and they're just going to be thrown into it and also the students who have never done online classes like it requires a different amount of self efficacy. I don't know what are we gonNA have older professors taking pieces of chalk and trying to write on so it looks like as of today today the eleventh. Yes yeah one hundred. Eighteen thousand three hundred twenty six confirmed cases globally and four thousand two hundred ninety two deaths. That's that's alive sewer. We'll be talking about a couple of corona virus related news items a bit later in the show. But yeah this is. You know we've been talking about it. You know obviously for months giving the updates and now we were just hitting. I think we could see the peak coming now. You know in. Us As least and a Lotta experts are saying now. Basically everyone's GonNa get exposed. You know it's really just a matter of. How quickly is it going to happen? The key is we want to slow it down as much as possible so it doesn't overwhelm our resources so it's not that we're GONNA keep it. We're not going to keep it from spreading. We're just going to slow the spread because that's a huge difference there were some jackass on. Tv saying just to expose everybody now with opposite. WanNa do we because then the mortality spikes when you run out of things like then a laters beds. It's not going to be literally everybody. It's going to spread through the population. But that doesn't mean everybody's going to be exposed right. I think that everyone is not going to necessarily contract it. The infectivity is not one hundred percent now. But unless you're like seriously isolated you're probably going to get exposed there whole countries where there's only like three cases. Yeah it'll get there eventually. That's the point that's what they're saying it's GONNA it's the human population has no immunity right. So it's a naive population. And it's going to make the rounds. It's going to eventually. Just make the rounds all over the world and then it'll slow down mainly because people will have either most people have already been infected. They won't be enough new. You know naive hosts to keep it going and do we know that you can't be reinfected. Well you'll have. Some level of immunity may not necessarily be one hundred percent of your no longer naive host. You have an immune system that seen seen this virus before the other thing is we want to slow it down and maybe an Iraq seen in twelve to eighteen months we have a vaccine and maybe we further slow it down and also. Maybe it'll be a seasonal situation and it actually will naturally slow down over the summer and give people some relief up until the new season starts if it operates seasonally. Yeah so any of the other thing that everyone is saying which is correct is don't panic but use your commonsense. You know just to avoid unnecessary contact with lots of evil face mask in the. Yeah yeah at least. Some Clark's wipes for the rest of us. Please honks toilet paper yeah please? The Toilet Paper Discusses Shelves Empty. And also don't be getting into fistfights over toilet paper at Costco. It's embarrassing yeah. We don't need a Thanksgiving Black Friday incident. Oh they're all over the world embarrassing. Okay Kerry you're going to give us a what's the word? Yes Oh. This word was sentenced by Linda from Petaluma California. She said I teach chemistry in high school and this term came up recently. So I figured I'd share with you and the whole crew. It's one I've always loved for the simple fact that I find it fun to say out loud. Always a good one to bring up in casual conversation and the word that she recommended is. Moity and Moya and many many of you have asked that we spell the words each week and this is an especially. I think. Necessary one dispel M. E. T. Y. Yeah it's a good one right and so I'm going to start a little bit with the etymology. Because then I think it makes more sense. When you look at all the different usages. Because it's true I had only ever heard of this word in a chemistry context but it apparently also has a sociology context as starting Brooklyn. No it's okay kind of were all French and it also has a property definition so the etymology of the word. Yeah it's from the Latin originally but the first time that has started to look like is old French around the fifteenth century in that usage it meant an equal half a half part or a share which is basically still its definition is just become a little bit more specific over time so if you look in like a dictionary definition you're gonNa find that it means let's see Miriam Webster. Which is kind of the American standard will say one of two equal parts. A half or one or two approximately equal parts or one of the portions into which something is divided or one of two basic complimentary tribal subdivisions and if you look at Cambridge Cambridge Dictionary. You'll see something similar. Apar- share something especially when it's divided into two parts but there they've added the chemistry definition but they just wrote a part of a molecule which is honestly not very specific. So if you really start to dig deep into the term you'll see that again. There are basically three main utilizations. There's the chemistry. Utilization Utilization Kinship and then a Moi early title which is a legal term that describes a portion of title ownership. So if it's like a divided tidal which is kind of interesting make sense in kinship. You'll see it. Referring oftentimes to tribal groups usually native American or specifically Iroquois or Australian aboriginal kinship groups. And also. I think there's a native Hawaiian kinship group and with that respect. Moi Eighty is like when there's a group that descends from a larger group and only hangs out with one other group

San Francisco Chronicle Sports - Spoken Edition
Future of Football: Readers respond
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Future a football readers respond by Al Sarah Cevic in late October, the chronicle published a six part series examining the future of football. The premise was simple now that we know the sport can cause lasting brain damage. Driving some to suicide. What are we going to do about it a dedicated team of chronicle? Journalists spent months digging into the subject, you can read the whole thing at SF chronicle dot com slash future afoot ball in a letter to chronicle subscribers I encouraged response. What do you think should be done? What will the game look like in twenty years? Let me share a few of those voices. Thanks, your reflection is so important. I did love your projection that football would look like boxing. Why the continued ignorance with little effort to address the problem, Frederick e Hessler at San Francisco, all your main recommendations. Make logical sense. And are the right thing to do. I was lucky. I was too small for playing grade school football, my coach realized this I believe in I sat on the bench. My mother always feared I would get seriously injured with regard to parents and kids now ultimately people need to make their own decisions about what to do with regard to their children playing football. If flag football is an option that would be great. I believe sooner than later American football, as we know it won't be as popular. Instead people will migrate to lesser injury prone sports that are also rewarding for fans parents schools and students John Durham Napa. Everybody's jumping on the football is dangerous bandwagon. This story is long winded bull all major sports have physical contact soft. Wimps are ruining this country and turning our men into soft little pansies look at the average something male today. Weak wimps worrying about the. Next superhero or Star Wars movie, all this coddling and winding is pathetic name withheld. I'm sixty eight I played for four years in high school and a year of college. I never finished a season mostly knee injuries. But I broke my thumb in college in a way that required surgery. I also boxed in college. I attended a forty Niners Cam for high school students where a very aggressive game of quote unquote, touch resulted in a hit that caused me to lose vision in one eye for a few plays naturally. I stayed in the game. So far it hasn't caught up to me. Anyway, I think one partial solution is to make all the pads and helmets soft on both the inside and the outside. Also, I think many knee injuries could be eliminated. If there were no cleats Leif ODA grin Petaluma step one change, the channel the rest of it really won't matter so much Greg Tolman, Berkeley Ulta. Emmett frisbee all quarterbacks. No, linebackers, spike. Connor Redwood City. It would be interesting to know, whether rugby has the same level of problems with brain trauma as football rugby players wear. No helmets or padding. And there are strict rules about tackling. I suspect that the protective gear in football increases the incidence of brain trauma because it allows players to hit each other harder. It doesn't take a direct head impact or cause a concussion. The sudden acceleration from a hard hit can do it. Even if there's no head contact in rugby players are less inclined to use their bodies as weapons when tackling because it could cause injury to the tacklers. It's counter intuitive, but reducing the amount of protective gear in football could make it a safer sport. The culture of the sport has to change to players coaches fans broadcasters and reporters have to stop seeing a disabling hit as a good thing. Ng? Jeff Lichtman Elsa. Reto? Bravo end. This disgusting sport. There's five thousand four hundred seventy two more peaceful ways for young people to quote, unquote, build character, Chris Moffet, San Ramon great articles on the game of football. If you get a chance read some of the books or articles on John gangly Ardy, the Saint John's university division three coach whose philosophy on the game of football was so different than any coach. I've known even in the fifties and sixties no tackling in practice. No practice longer than ninety minutes. Water breaks it Sarah his philosophy worked. He one more football games. Four hundred eighty nine than any coach in NC double A history along with four national championships. I played for John in the sixties on one of his championship teams. We never had anyone hurt in practice except the occasional ankle sprain. We had a few transfers from schools like. The university of Minnesota where Murray Warmoth coached with the philosophy of making the practices tougher than the games kind of survival of the fittest code that was not unusual at that time football needs to change again. Thanks for the great articles Terry Underwood, according Madera, here's a modest proposal. Make everyone eligible why linemen are ineligible for passes. Always been a mystery to me this is somewhat more radical than the eight ten offense. I think that's what it was called that. The Piedmont high coaches developed and was voted down by the NF s but it would keep the nature of the game intact while changing dramatically if everyone is eligible the game will spread out, and there will be more of a premium on speed and agility, then raw size, power football will make less sense and just as the three point line and the warriors style has pretty much removed the power game from basketball, especially at the lower levels. There will be a shift toward more scoring. And use of the whole field. It's not a complete or perfect solution. Of course. But it moves the game away from one on one contact and towards skill and speed clay Callum, walnut creek, the late US Senator, gene. Mccarthy democrat Minnesota had a great line. He said football is like politics, you have to be smart enough to understand the game and dumb enough to think it's important Eric mills Oakland, thanks to all of our readers who responded, interestingly, we didn't get much from people defending the sport as it stands. Maybe we're preaching to the choir here in the bay area. Maybe people are starting to see the truth.
