XSET's Wil Eddins and Clinton Sparks on Music & Merch in Esports
"Also just the overlap of celebrity with gaming that we've seen and how that also translates into Church Street. We're so starting pretty broad couldn't I guess I'll start with you with someone who has deep into the top level of the music industry. How have you seen Stars changed their perspective on gaming the last few years. It really feels seen a lot of acceptance of gaming and embracing of gaming from a lot of the most popular musicians of the world. Well, I mean, it would behoove them to get familiar with the community in an industry that is as large as gaming in E Sports is because they have their music which is also a big component in streaming and gaming so it would be advantageous for them to get familiar with that wage base. So they can interact with those celebrities are streamers and games over there to get more exposure for their music but a lot of a lot of athletes and in artists are Gamers themselves off. So, you know used to be two separate things these guys over here and those guys are over there and you know throughout my career. I've always been the bridge between different Industries and connecting them together. So that's one of the things that we did really big at our last organization that we intend on doing even bigger here at exit. So, yeah, I think gaming in in in I said this before gaming in music has always been always been basically dating they've been like a booty call and it just never committed. You know, I mean, I think just now they're actually realizing like, oh, we really love each other like why why are we like hanging out more about Netflix and chill? So I think that's kind of what's happening with music and Gamers and streaming and and musicians all together now, It's been pretty crazy. I think a lot of it started with the Drake and ninja fortnite stream, but prior to that people like Deadmau5 were on Twitch way before it really took off as a platform and there's you know, quite a bit of sampling of video game music over the years and tons of this different crossover will as you've seen it from a merchandising and fashion perspective. We've seen Esports and gaming has become things that a lot of artists like to wear onstage that athletes are walking into games with how have you seen that change and how and building as somebody who built phase into one of those brands that have seen odd the chests of many different celebrities. How does the crossover of celebrity into gaming help you from a merchandising and fashion perspective. So I you mentioned the juju moment with Drake and Travis like I mean, I remember being in the office with Greg and Clinton just saying like wow, this shit is validated now, like like the mass. The youth in urban and pop culture is not Embrace Esports and gaming. So I was like, you know, since we have such an extensive background in a parallel fashion, I was like, we need to start reaching out to our friends and family that are also still like, you know, not very like familiar with e sports but like if we were to reach out to them and let them know like Now's the Time like do projects with the Esports organization like we would break ground. So I mean getting getting product onto like whether it's celebrity or just like, you know, the day-to-day gamer or the cool guy or cool girl in school. Like I just thought like we just need to, you know, reach out to Heritage brands that you know, the E Sports gamer communities are ready have a brace and wearing on a daily and just you know outfitting and working at it into their you know, their closets by merging, you know, that these sports or gamer brands with them. It's it was it was a no-brainer, you know, like people, you know, people walk all you know walking sneakers and he's he's all day but our Nikes but how cool would it be if it was paired off with an E sports or gamer bread, you know, so it was an easy. Was it easy marriage? So to speak absolutely those Partnerships are so crucial when building a Brand New Jersey too big a massive icon and in the same time frame. Coincidentally, we've also seen all the major athletic apparel Brands Nike Adidas Champion Puma all do a lot more work in Esports and gaming in general. So there's been a ton of those crossover opportunities as you now move to exit where you've got a new brand that was created just this last summer is now working at a bunch of different games side a bunch of celebrities or some of the challenges in building this new brand into one that encompasses that same level of passion that you see for other stray dog. Brad's at the gaming world, right? I mean, I don't think there's any there's any challenges if you don't mind me jumping in there cuz we're dope and we're doba what we do and we plan on different people build stuff. So I will can add on to that. But yeah, I mean he's right right, but you know, we we've learned how to Pivot and understand what we're doing is super new in that we don't have an existing. We didn't have an existing audience. You know, we we came straight out the gate and we knew if we were going to do it we had to come with some heat or just something where it would make it a great impression. So I mean the challenges are a like a month. It's going to be trying to find who your customer is and what they'd like and if they would like, you know, the things that we're presenting based off our tastes and you know the design that we're putting out so it's like you're you're basically throwing out a line and seeing what kind of fish you can catch right and then the other thing is, you know, supply chain like pre covid-19. Big problem, you know Finding inventories and and blanks and you know even just working with companies during this time was like the the time lines and production often times where hard to work with so we had to we had to work along those lines and figure it out. So we also be at home about it because

Mark's Cougar Conundrum
"Welcome to the is on conservation podcast. I'm Gregory. Hatanaka and today for this is on conservation. We have none other than the one the only serene assignments, how you doing Serena I'm great. I also really appreciate the way that introduce people on the show I appreciated the last introduction that you did. So Nice. So. Nice of you. I really appreciate that well I just want to do the best I can to make sure that everybody knows who the real experts are which is. No secret. Not Me so. No you're one of them for sure. Did Watts Oh. Yeah. Oh Yeah. I even know that L. No no I'm just I'm just an enthusiastic cheerleader that's really what it is and the feeling is mutual. Absolutely absolutely mutual. I'm really excited to jump into this interview that you did with Mark L. Brock. Why don't you tell listeners who this is what we're going to be listening to? Yeah mark is amazing and he the the one thing that I really appreciate about mark is he's so articulate. It's it's it's kind of crazy. It's sort of like he knows how to talk to the public and talk to stakeholders all the things that we're GonNa talk about in the interview he's really good at communicating people and communicating all his efforts and his research and and. I don't just from a management perspective as someone who is a wildlife manager everything that he said made a lot of sense and I think it would make a lot of sense to people that don't know a lot about the subject So I was really impressed with him. Mark is a researcher focuses on mountain lions or Pumas cougars whatever you WANNA, call him, and he has been working in this field for. A really long time. So he's really gotten to know the species their behavior and a lot of the conflicts that come with them and living alongside large carnivore like mountain lion. So he wrote an he's written several books but his most recent book is called the Cougar Conundrum and the Cougar conundrum kind of outlines these bigger picture and with great examples, case studies and examples of basically the history of our. You know what he calls a conundrum, which I think is the best word to use this huge problem. That we have been experiencing north, America, surrounding these animals for for hundreds of years. So it's it's really it was great getting to talk to him and I learned a lot You know not just reading the book, but also just talking him and again he has a way with the way that he speaks that it just makes sense and he's very measured and I can just really tell that he he has invested a lot of time. You know working trying to problem solve, but you have to he he's he's the perfect person because he is so measured and listens and I I just think he's he's the best possible person to do what he does. So I'm really excited to have you guys listen to our conversation. That's awesome. Yeah. He's very well spoken and this book if I'm not mistaken, you had a sneak peek at it should be coming out the day after this episode airs Yes. So I, got a sneak peek at it and I got to read it ahead of its release which will be released on August thirteenth. So yeah, the day after this episode gets. and it will be available at any bookseller He mentioned that it would be great. If you know you WANNA contact your local bookshop see if you can get a couple of copies into the store, but it's also available online and wherever you normally get your books. Well, that sounds amazing and let's just jump right into this interview. Why don't we start by you just introducing yourself your name and a little bit about your background. Sure. My Name's Markelle Brooke. I'm a father. And a working biologist and I live in western Washington on the Olympic peninsula where I am part of a massive collaboration with five tribal nations to study mountain lions on the peninsula and how they crossed the interstate five corridor. I also worked for Penn. Thera. I'm the director of the PA- Program Outline programme, whichever were you prefer? and. So I help sort of create new projects identify need identified the conservation issues for mountain lions across their entire range. So we have projects ranging from up here in Washington State all the way down to the southern tip of South America. Wow. So it's a huge I know panther is a huge. Organization it's a global organization. I mean and I know you probably get this a lot. But how did you? How did you get involved with Panther and how did you get involved with mountain lions? Indeed it's You know it's all dumb luck. Great. panthers a as he said, it's a global organization. We work to conserve wildcats and they're landscapes around the world. You know it's How ends up doing what I do is. Is Sort of a circuitous journey. One never really has plans or at least if you do they tend to go out the window and and life happens. So I tell folks because I get asked this a lot. You know you must have always planned to be outlined biologist, and now here you are. Say absolutely not you know you. Have a plan. In the field of wildlife, you may have a goal and what generally happens is an opportunity comes up and you decide to take it or you don't so
Jochen Zeitz on the Power of Fashion to Drive Sustainable Change
"Good afternoon you can. How are you today? I'm very good high Iran from America. You're in new. Mexico is that right. Yes shattering at home because our officers are still closed until later this month. Okay and tell us a little bit about where you're at in New Mexico. You have a home there. I know but you. You spend your time in quite a few different places. So why did you choose New Mexico as a place to sit this quarantine out because Just being appointed to the position of senior and president of Davidson then the company's movable key and to and I'm only one time zone away from Milwaukee so I'm headed. Us publicly listed company now. And and hence. Why I'm a US together with God it well that I guess. Pratt for practical reasons that makes perfect sense though. I hear that New Mexico's also very beautiful and I can imagine that doesn't hurt. It certainly doesn't enter this still lots of opportunity to ride a motorbike as well. You know. Yuck and before we get to the topic at hand I think you know that This week on the business of fashion. We've really been focusing all of our content and discussions around building a responsible business so it strikes me as very interesting that you've taken this new role as the president and CEO Partly Davidson because apart from the fashion industry and maybe the Energy Industry the transport industry is one of the most damaging industries in the world when it comes to our planet and so I know you have this incredibly long and sustained career in focusing your professional time and energy on building more responsible sustainable businesses. So you can you tell us a little bit about you know why this opportunity at Harley Davidson was so appealing to you. Well first of all because I believe that sector leaders and iconic brands have a tremendous opportunity to contribute to a change in consumer behavior. As a whole and I've done that in my boss lie that coma as both carrying also helping them said business. The Independent initiatives at the time being called. Ppo hold now carrying. And I just believe that sector is an iconic brands have that opportunity and we should use it as a as a way not just to be more responsible but the actually looking at it as an opportunity for jobs in the market. You're seen as a kind of turnaround specialist. You know. You've gone in from a very young age at Puma. I think you were the youngest. Ceo in Germany of a public company. At that time. And you took Puma and really help to not just turn it around from a business standpoint but also really inject some of these principles That we've been focusing on this week at B. O. F. into that business so I guess you know in the first instance someone who's operated in this space for a very long time. I mean how is it that you defined what a responsible business means now but a sustainable socially responsible business means how do you articulate that to people in your teams or elsewhere when you're trying to kind of gain further? Bienne that this is the way you more businesses need to be thinking your lipid limit. Stop with the first part of your statement rather than Christian and calling me a turnaround specialist. I would look at myself as as a change. Agent more than a turnaround specialists and the foster. The world changes the boy. I need to be a change agent and an still change it. What you do in Your Business and I guess ozone our private life if you look at how the world has changed especially in the last few months so I don't look at myself of turnaround specialist but somebody that's challenge the status quo and to come back to your question is when you when you look at the State of planet. Today we recognize that we are taking more resources away from old planet leaving if irreparable damage that means we have to change and hence we cannot just look at shareholder. The value growing a business any longer but we have to look at it responsibly. But at the same time also as an opportunity and how we can actually do better as a business but doing so by keeping our stakeholders robin just showers minded. Our Planet is key stakeholder because without our planet we won't be able to function so that's clear and then the corona virus crisis hit in the last few months and businesses throughout various sectors. Have been hit hard including Harley Davidson the industry that we work in the fashion industry. I mean how. How do you see this kind of responsible? Business thinking in light of the crisis that we're now all experiencing both from kind of public health and an economic standpoint. I'd say even going into the crisis you start to see change. In a lot of companies more and more companies that may be compared to five years ago where it was handful of select leaders and companies that we're promoting a more responsible way of doing business And I think this is only going to accelerate. I think investors are asking the question that was one of the missing links in the past that quite often investors. We're not really looking. Yes G. or sustainability as a as a an important Harrasment based on which one should just judge investment. That has been happening. I actually see this accelerating post-crisis that you can make the business case for a planet And you can say what we experiencing now with. The virus is just a false way of experiencing climate change that will happen over decades but the resolves is creeping change or planet which will have negative impacts on how live operate and work hence something. We need to get our hands around on. This virus is is a testament for a needed cross change in order to deal with a much bigger crisis that the would it be affecting our lives wrong world in twenty thirty years to call. So we've been talking this week as I mentioned about. You know the idea that. The fashion industry needs to clean up. Its Act and you have the very unusual position now of WHO's operated right at the very heart of the fashion industry as you mentioned both at home on caring and I know you stepped out of the industry some time ago but I'm sure as an observer and you know someone who was kind of closely embedded in this industry previously. You've been watching and I'm curious to understand your like. How do you see the fashion industry now? In light of this need for the industry to clean up its act and you know some of these things that you were talking about for years. These principles around sustainability and creating a business that simply extract resources from the planet and exploit people businesses that really found a way of operating while respecting these different stakeholders. I mean as a as a as a former insider now an outsider. What are your thoughts now on the fashion industry on this journey of of of kind of shaking things up when I look at every crisis in opportunity. It's an opportunity to really look at your own south. It's an opportunity to look at Your Business and how you operate and say what can we the essentially change to adjust our says to the new noma coming out of this crisis. I would say it's it's a given that they will be do a which is affecting our lives which is effective way effecting the way we we by the way we triple. A. And our consciousness about critically shes of our world advising domestically I think that's if businesses don't ask themselves that question you know you would be history of rather than the future attempts to fashion industry. I always believe that you need to embed sustainability into the DNA of Your Business and of your brand. You don't want to be the one shouting. We are sustainable. Be less understandable and others Jimmy. It's a definition of quality and a new way of looking at what is quantity in the future versus what was deemed the poss. When our Resources Ltd I would just simply say as quantities. Such an important driver luxury and desirability. If you're not sustainable. You don't actually operates with quality products that that's the new definition for me. That embed sustainability in every decision. You make us a business as a business leader as design as a manufacturer and and we need to look at this very seriously at and not just a setup sustainability departments that only scratched the surface but actually embed the word sustainability into our day to day operation.
Lessons From Surah Qaf Ustadh Irshad Hussain: Patience In This Time Of Crisis
"So shallow. We're going to be taking three key lessons from this raw. They shall. We can reflect on in our lives looking at the current situation around us firstly. Unbelievable that we're in a month ago. If you'd said there were in the majority of the world is going to be on the lockdown with massive changes to our social economical financial structure in in this way it would be unbelievable likewise beginning to. Ceuta about something else that. The disbelievers found unbelievable. That's the day of judgement they said had shown a job. This is a strange thing that would die. Become dust That's far preposition. So so this aspect of denying in here here are in a hair after it was president is present now so so that a lot he says to us that have seen the creation around them and would that they can evidences of how the resurrection wants to focus on. We need to use. We need to be able to look at the world around us to make changes to our lives. So let's as a Falungong summer focus. I've seen the heavens. If trump with him how we have made it how beautified did does know and earth how spread out. I'm throwing mountains. We put opponent every different type of punt and then he says that this is a with Vikram Likud Ogden Muneeb. It's a is a way by which a person he's able to see from blindness to to light and it's a reminder for him for every slave whose Mooney Mooney is one who's going to La going back to his his his his focus in life which is to which is to please allow us to to think how can improve myself. Haakan Puma wishing he's always you looking to make a sentence is returning back to? This is the first lesson. Don't we should focus upon and the second key lesson otake call for us. Today is how a law he informs US IN THIS SURA. In this chapter the porcine will decide. Every Friday morning at Pfizer. To remind himself in the congregation is the is how how how hold us in account for the day of judgement and there's a number of ways he mentioned in the sewer in one thing he says what Insana were not monsters will be here not enough so that very recreated man we know what his own soul whispered himself that there's nothing that we think about except that he knows that he say's colon he doesn't say any word except with him is an angel writing away record everything. Nothing is missing along. And then he talks about death. The thing that we fair it talks about the the blowing of the Great Hoon and then how people were driven unless as that. This is the event that people were in Hoffler on in Hillis of look at half Latin Hazza but today we have exposes he can see clearly and the green a the the agenda is five evil. He will this point lead. Try to save himself. You would say Robin Emma value to WHO I didn't call them to become misguided but he himself was misguided so yes he whispered away yes Austrian wishes away but in today's up to us a choice knowing that there's a there's going to be uncountable Which there's no escape so when he's talking to all the way over to say tim say to them that similar the don't argue in front of me because the water's going forth so he soloist. Say That so him and the Korean for Japan so the Boston fire because for every this believer who was reject food obstinate and arrogant. He knew the truth but he wasn't willing to listen but all this accountability is based on the fact that he doesn't do any zoom. Do any transgression. So this is the second aspect I wish to focus upon. The Accountability of us for that day is going to be perfect and the final key lesson is how to prepare for the digital pursuit and and they're in essence three key versus. Osias to focus on I as an how many people before them did. We destroy who are struggling and they. They're great houses and buildings and the gardens in the world but now they go do snowscape for them unless say he's very in that there is an admonition for the one who hasn't hot so we have a clean heart the we can see our history learned from it because history repeats itself or Cassano. Huish and he'd or he puts forth attentive hair really trying to listen trying to understand so if a person contemplates reflects on life it will help to pay for the day of judgement. Because he's he history repeats itself. Secondly says flustered al-Amaya coon with some bit hungrier. Bec- that have patience upon what they say and grow for you load in the morning and in the evenings so part of preparing for the day of judgement is being patient patient. Even in this time of difficulty. We're we're right now we're going to be. We're going to be stressed in terms of finances. Our social lives all the things that we you should do and there are some people who go to simply Craig by. Let's say be patient

Luka Doncic Agrees to a Shoe Deal With Jordan Brand
"In sneaker news. I remember the last time he was here. We spoke about sneaker news. Where we're Luke assign back? Well guess what Luka has made a decision and he has gone with her to Jordan brand people third third Jordan brand Jordan brace our joining and the thing about it I loved was the outfit that he dropped. Take a look at this outfit the day. Eight after signing those Georgia ones were absolutely Chris Have Cream colored little Hinson to blow. It was not nice way to come out though I mean he said you know this is coming out party. Say I'm here. Yeah exactly now. We wanted him to sign up. The places hopefully hopefully could have been Lebron's I you know I cited or Adidas Puma as we even do some of those out there but with him signing and we Jason Tatum with the Jordan Braid with Zion Williamson with the Jordan brand my question to you who gets a signature shoe. I is a great question. And I'M GONNA go with Luca and the reason why I say Lucas Lucas absolutely plan lights out. The right lightweight triple double machine. He's in a great team in Dallas. He's the front runner for maybe even. MVP keep up these debts. And I'm sure that's part of his conditional contract for Jordan that he he played excellent. And you know Georgia's not the type of person that's going to give anybody anything before they deserve it absolutely. I think it's going to hurt Zion with him being out for the year or they say that you know he should be you back shortly him being out for the year. I think that's going to hurt him. Jason Tatum played lights out basketball but is not on a local level and to be honest with you out of all three Luca and pretty much the most marketable NBA player right now. Even though there's been a lot of changes in the NBA. Luca is a player that all of America is comfortable celebrated celebrated and if you understand what I'm celebrate anywhere in America in Iowa they comfortable having a Luca poster as well as a in New York City. They're comfortable having a local post. I can agree with that. I can agree with that but he also he has a certain trauma bite himself. He's a fan favorite and I just don't see The two guys beat him up. Well I won't be coming to Luca ones who

"Are here to talk about the twenty thousand nine hundred film the Lion King which is also one thousand nine hundred four film called the Lion King. This is a photo realistic digitally animated reimagining though not quite so creatively reimagined version of the lion king which is of course one of the Canonical Disney new golden teenage classics that has been remade in this series of remakes and boy. There are a lot of things to say about this film. They're not a lot of things to say about. The plot of this film because the plot is exactly the same as the original yes for the most part but Amanda. Let's start this conversation by talking about one thousand nine hundred four wow take take me back to Amanda Dobbins in one thousand nine hundred four entering a movie theater and experiencing the lion king so I would have been nine years old at the time of the release police and I'm trying to remember. I don't remember this actual theater day experience because again I was nine I don't know what are you going to say children children but I have probably seen seen this movie after the fact as much as any other Disney movie that I've seen and I think this soundtrack definitely became a part of my life. We have spent a lot of time on this five guys talking about how much I love Elton. John and I think this was my entry way into Elton on John. <hes> so I the music and those opening notes you make me emotional every single time and I think I'm trying to remember we were talking I went to they were released the lion king the nineteen ninety-four Lion King about ten years. There's an I actually went to see that in theaters which is strained. It's not something I normally do. I don't go in for that type of nostalgia usually but this became the central Disney tax for Amihai for a lot of other people in my generation I think because it's not about princess and it's not about a boy either I mean obviously there are male and female lions but it's just about animals. I think it's about more than just a love story which which is great it brings in a larger audience and I think probably both in terms of story musical achievement. I think it's the peak of the new golden era of Disney I would agree with you and I think that that has evolved over time. This up in this movie was obviously massive box office success. Yes it was later adapted Julie Taymor into a very successful Broadway adaptation. This new version is directed by Jon favreau. Who is one of the I think one of the signature blockbuster film makers of his era so you know this meaningful the movie the original movie was nominated for the two Academy Awards which actually feels quite low in retrospect this is before there was a best animated feature category was not needed for best original score and best original song for can you feel the love tonight? I definitely saw the lion king three or four times in the movie theater really and I was I think I was eleven when the film was released so maybe a little old but I also I think I was very I think Aladdin ensnared me and I got very excited about people like Robin Williams and so the <unk> Immonen Puma aspect the movie. I've done very appealing. I was not quite aware of the Shakespearean hamlet intonations or the biblical Joseph and Moses Story but at the same time I think that this movie is pitched a little older than say Aladdin for that the reason because there are those generational and canonical overtones in it's about fathers and sons and family what we leave behind and responsibility and larger issues. There's there are no oh princesses in this movie which I think is one of the other things to that is significantly different from so many of the classic Canonical Disney movies that we talk about this isn't Cinderella. This isn't sleeping beauty. This isn't even Aladdin in that respect. It's a very male movie. All of the main characters are very male and I wonder if as a kid I I was responding to that unconsciously somehow. I'm sure you were. I think it is also somehow it is very male but somehow feels like less masculine that a lot of I have been handed a lot of male focus. I've caught her throughout my life and especially as a kid and I do think that this opened up a little bit more than it is. Also there are female characters. Nala is not as developed as you might right like but at the end of the other lions you know they're lions can see yourself if you're going to see yourself in an animal. You're going to see yourself in an animal. There's kind of less gender stuff to work with. I'm glad we agree that. This is the peak of the Disney neo golden era the decision to remake. This movie is complex on the one hand. If you listen to our episode about alive and you know that there is really one reason why they're doing this which is money. These movies are making a lot of money. These live action remakes. Some of them are more successful than others. Yes I think Dumbo came out earlier this year and has already been forgotten. That was not very successful these from financial perspective I think creatively there's kind of some cool things in dumbo happening. It's Tim Burton applying his Tim burntness to the Disneyworld which is kind of a kick unto itself. We may look back on in ten years ago. That was interesting. I found beating the beast for example to be utterly dull and pointless and I thought Aladdin was strange and a little bit unnerving and a little bit sexual and why why are the only person person who's like let the genie have his life. Why not I want to be a human? That's part of being a human. Let's make this a sex positive podcast. Okay thank you. The Lion King is different from those movies. Those movies star the sex in this movie. There's there's has no sex in this movie and there's no humans in this movie at all and all those other movies all of these other live action remake Cinderella Kenneth Branagh Cinderella Stars a human being Willy James. The Lion King is completely digitally animated and there are some brilliant people I think chief among them Rob Llegado who is the sort of digital overseer of this whole film the person who has conceived a lot of this new has worked on a great many films Steven Spielberg and Maureen Scorsese in his widely considered one of the premier digital architects of the modern era of movies but there's something you know the the phrase the Uncanny valley has been used frequently in aggressive reviews of this movie because Sedna Valley and there's something unnerving about looking at real life photo realistic ish lions <hes> talking and singing and nuzzling and conquering <hes> the actual physical Ram like manifestation of this movie. How did you feel about it? I think I'm the only person who is really pro. I honestly it's like a nature documentary with Elton John Songs. I'm not mad. I do think I turn to you within ten minutes of this movie starting and was like we should be high right now. We shouldn't in a band because it was a professional experience in the middle of the day and it's important to have boundaries kids in that theater yes exactly so we made the right responsible decision but in terms of the attitude with which I would enjoy seeing this movie I thought it looked looked amazing and I I really do think that as a technical and visual achievement it's beautiful and there and I wanna say two things about that. One is in terms of the it's. It's competition and comparing it with all of the other effects that we have seen. I find it so strange that people don't seem to like this because we have sat through so much true visual garbage in the last two three five years so many blockbuster movies that we see look like trash and their garbled and there's so much C._G._i.. And that's I mean that is certainly true. I think of Superhero movies which I just have stopped taking into account visually because I've just give it up but also a lot of now that we're using more C._G._i.. And Action Movies and honestly just for location stuff so much stuff looks really bad all the time and you can tell that it's fake and I saw that this looked beautiful. I agree with you to an extent. I think that if you look at a lot of the early reviews of the film what you'll see is this kind of phrasing the lion king is an extraordinary breakthrough comma but and the but what is this is creatively dead end and I think you're what your feelings are. I remember this kind of conversation around Avatar. It feels very similar to the one that you're having right Avatar. which is that habit to see Avatar in theaters? I don't know if you saw it in theaters. I assume you did okay you like most humans saw. There is a blizzard in New York and I'd better my house for today's and I gotta go right so Avatar. I remember being completely blown away. I it was a very similar situation where I was not really thinking terribly hard about the world that James Cameron had created but I was inside side of the world and it's sort of movie that when you watch on television does not stand up in quite the same way but it has this ability to surround you an envelope you in what it has created which is from whole cloth the line this lion king. I think is somewhat similar. The problem is we know where the movies going the whole time and so if you are not stoned and you can't fully just appreciate the digital presentation it feels like you're on a road to nowhere and end. I like the I like the story of the Lion King a lot and there are things about this version of the lion king that I think are interesting in well done but I couldn't just help but feel like they stretched out something that I didn't need this moves thirty minutes longer longer than the original film I would say that the voice performances some of which are good most of which are less good than the original which is not what you want true they meet an interesting trace to <hes> interesting choice but I understand how it happens they spent all of their time on the visuals <hes> and it looks spectacular and they did not update this script they they seem to have extended the story little and I think they spent a lot of extra time. Is the the Hyena seen in the chase scenes. Which I think are pretty scary? Yes and I'm curious to see how kids handle they're going to be tougher for your old. I mean that was a little scary in the cartoon yeah because I mean and that's dealing with parent death and real serious stuff but this genuinely mainly frightening an immersive and so I thought that was a great achievement and I think that's where the time goes but they didn't update the actual scripts like there are still lines being said that were written for a children's cartoon soon version of these people and there is a difference between a an what if if is the non pejorative way of saying children's cartoon well how would you you're well but I'm trying to distinguish kind of the nineteen ninety four animation from the new enemy that is something that I wanna talk about a little later in this show but but there is a difference in presentation and style and it's two different types of art and they both require skill and artistry but you expect to different things to come out of the mouths of the nineteen ninety-four Lion and the photo realistic two thousand nine hundred nine no doubt the original film you go back and we watch it and last week on the Internet there was a twitter account that very predictably did a side by side of the ninety four version of the Lion King <hes>. I believe it was the performance of a Kuna Matata. I can't recall specifically which song it was. I think it was gonna Matata and then the new version of accoutrements auto and what you see in the animated version is this almost busby Berkeley. Ask musical execution. The characters are like whirling dervishes. They're doing flips. They're swinging from vines. They're not just walking through the jungle and in the new Kuna Matata it's just a warthog and Amir cat and a lion walking singing and that is just less visually dynamic and it's more difficult to do this sort of photo realistic digital animation that they've done but it's not as fun and the original Lion King is really fun and there's something intellectually absent from this in a way. It's like the in an attempt to be more real. They have lost sight of what was ultimately truly great about the movie. I think that is that is where my head is. I I think that's true. I don't think that this movie like does it to borrow sports metaphor that I barely understand like carried the baller cross the goal line if he will done that state football yes right they don't they don't get there but I I also watched that clip of the side by side and my first thought was wow I nine and was really young and I was at child when I saw this movie and this is a movie it is it does have childlike wonder and what I responded to in this New Lion King and you and I had this conversation after we saw it is it's like it's a different type of imagination. I mean here's my thing what if lions could talk that would be cool as shit if like lions could actually talk and you could just watch them have an actual shakespearian drama and it's not even amber narrating narrating it it's them actually talking and it looked as and it was real life and it looked beautiful and it was shot beautifully as this is that is more exciting to that type of imagination is more exciting to me than total made up worlds ads and total out of nothing fantasy things I just did the things were spinning reality and suddenly it's like these majestic creatures could speak to you. I I find that really exciting and I liked that approach to this movie i. I don't think they leaned into it fully enough. I'm going to ask you unanswerable question. Let's say that there was a movie in Twenty nineteen called the Lion King <hes> that was written designed executed in exactly the same way but the nineteen ninety-four version of the lion king did not exist and this was the first time you're seeing this movie <hes> this story. Do you think you would like it well because you typically do not like quote. Unquote Animated Films Right I. I don't like things that are for children because I'm a grownup and I know that that's like really hard for you to here. It's just unnecessarily. It's just it's just I'll bet you asked me unanswerable Kushner and I'm trying to be very honest if if I could sense and this movie so for children <hes> you know and so much of this stuff where they didn't make it they made it pretty scary but then they're still kind of the goofy numbers and they don't explore a lot of a lot. AWW questions number one. There's no sex had a lot of questions about like the demographics of a Lion Pride yes you there. There are larger political issues that they kind of leave on the table because you got it just like have a a little lion singing a song about you. You know I just can't wait to which I by the way have memorized and I just forgot the title there
Nike vows investigation after Duke star's shoe blows out
"And thirty six seconds. Enter the game. John Williamson is down. He blew through shoe. Look at look at his left shoe. He blew completely threw the shoe. And he started holding his right? Leeann showman Jay Bilas ESPN Zion. Williamson's the projected first pick in the upcoming NBA draft the Duke freshman suffered a mild right knee sprain. And missed almost all of North Carolina is eighty eight seventy two win over Duke, his Nike shoe fell apart as he tried to plant his foot causing the injury Nike tweeted it was concerned in working to identify the issue. Puma tweeted, then deleted, quote wouldn't have happened in the Puma probably probably. A tad not very insensitive by Puma. How'd you like to be a Nike executive this morning dealing with that? And I wouldn't like to be the
Zion Williamson out of Duke-UNC game for knee injury after blowing out his shoe
"With last night's big story and that was the Zion Williamson injury. If you happen to miss it. Of course, he was the big game everybody that was you know, everybody excited going into last night's nine PM eastern tip off UNC Duke. It's one game that everybody gets excited for every year. And especially this year with giant Williamson and everything he has done for the blue devils and thirty three seconds in Zion goes down. He tries to make a move near the top of the key plants, his left foot and his shoe. Disintegrates he blows out the shoe to a point that I don't think I've ever seen anything like that grabs the knee unable to play for the rest of the game. Do goes on to lose big at home. Final is eighty eight seventy two sixty two points of those eighty eight that UNC scored came the paint clearly a huge hole left by Williamson. But the big question that everybody wanted to know after the game was is. I n okay is his left knee. Okay. Coach K, please. Tell US House I doing so mild knee sprain. Nia stable. We don't know how long he'll be out. I think we'll find out more about that. It's crazy that the two games we've lost here. Something's happened in the first part of the game. And the preparation that. You would have for the game is obviously based on. Your players being there, and especially he and Archer who are who are the key guys. And so it puts everyone. State of. Trying to figure it out while while you're playing outstanding team. That's not a good situation. And obviously Duke did not figure that out. That's coach Mike shoshefsky. And this is first and last I'm Gabe Nigel on ESPN radio. But it seems that John is going to be okay. The fact that coach K called a mild knee sprain. Is of just a knee sprain. Seems that whenever there's the potential to be something worse with the knee teams will throw out the generic term knee sprain. But coach K getting a little bit more specific they're calling it a mild knee sprain. Saying that the knee is indeed stable still don't know. How much time Zion is going to miss them guessing going to miss some time. But the fact that it seems that he is going to be okay. Makes it okay that we all made jokes last night about Nike's expense on Twitter and on Instagram on Facebook on social media, and poooest gotta know betterman Puma even sent out a tweet Puma was throwing shade at Nike because the shoe blew out. And every story that I'm reading there was an ESPN dot com. You're you're reading the story. And specifically you see the Nike shoe like Nike just continues to get thrown under the bus, his his his left Nike basketball shoe fell hard as he planted tripling near the free throw line on the opening play. That's from Ryan McGee over at ESPN dot com. And it was blowing up so bad on social media team people going after Nike that Nike had to release a statement this morning. We are obviously concerned and want to wish I on a speedy recovery. The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance while this is an isolated occurrence. We are working to identify the issue. But then Puma jumped in they deleted the tweet but come on. This is social media. You can't throw up a tweet, especially one that's gonna throw some shade. And not have everybody notice and have people grab screen shots. So while Puma Puma hoops deleted this tweet. Happened in the Pumas Terry Rozier, even getting in on the action come over to Puma. Everybody had jokes about oh, everyone. Adidas under armor there in. That's the those are the shoe company. Science going to sign with after he leaves Duke this year. Seventy having a little bit of fun at at at Nike's expense because the shoe blows up. We're being honest. I think I think Nike's built up enough. Goodwill over the last three decades of basketball shoes. That we can have some fun with it last night. But after that, it's all going to be forgotten that it was necessarily a Nike shoe that blew up on Zion. And I guarantee it has nothing to do with zion's shoe decision. When he heads to the NBA this
"puma" Discussed on MeatEater Podcast
"And they're very they eliminate the native went Akot. And when it goes like a like, a llama it it's a camel Camelot. And if you hybrid is and domestic I mean, kind of end up with a llama in a crooked sorta way, but the wild version's called a went Akot in it looks like Allama, right? It was like a llama a why Allama wild version, and then there's like an L pack, while the kunia is the pack awhile version. Yeah. So those it's all camels and cats in Pentagon. Yeah. Right. That's inva-. Kunis are the north end cables. Okay. Yeah. It's different than here for when it comes to Puma, right? Same. We're talking about up here Puma there. Same thing. Subspecies? Right. So these poems down there, and I and I call him Puma the second half of the book, I call him outlines a first-half because you know, we're here, and I wanted readers to feel feel it we switched to Puma for the second half. I thought that was great. Yeah. I like that. And and I had to convince my editors that and and they got it. But I think it adds a little year in South America. So the yes, they eat one hundred percent, non native pray European hares and domestic sheep down there, in some cases. And that's a problem. So there's generations of Cowboys called gauchos that Gaucho culture, the very tough just like our Cowboys ranch hands, and they have been raised to kill every line or Puma they find and other species as well anything that could be a threat to shape, and they run hounds down there too. Right. Yeah. They do now. But even I mean, they they'll walk them down down there. The write them down on a horse. It's crazy. They're very tough. They're very good at what they do. So that's a problem tolerance, isn't there on agriculture ranches for the most part. That's why you know, I tell the story of Chris Doug Tompkins by these ranches turning him into parks giving back to the government. That all of a sudden interested tolerated. Yeah, you're saying that because these ranches being so big. That a single purchase can create what we would imagine to be a national park or larger larger than Yosemite one purchase. And you do a few of them. It's interesting. I just saw statistic now because Doug passed away in a kayaking accident about five years ago at Chris I remember it's carrying it on the the legs his legacy. And he I is now being celebrated in Chile and Argentina they're accepting him to mazing the governments are accepting him when they didn't trust the process to begin with. But they have now donated to be public land that all of us native Chileans Argentina's kinda enjoy larger than the size of Switzerland. They took their personal wealth and put it on park. So where that's important is. Now, you have you can rewind it, you know, it doesn't have domestic sheep anymore though. Innocuous can recover the is can recover when mood dear they have an they have a really interesting deer that looks like our meal deer with smaller Antlers. Little more of a bulbous face. Crazy can do when moolah is how they pronounce it. And it's like a caribou just stands there. They're very not afraid of anything domestic dogs can take him down. And it's an issue, but they can recover. And so it has to be a park. There's no in between down there right now. Although that could change someday with, you know, the concept of conservation easement like we have here in tax laws. But right now, it's my understanding. It's almost got to be a protected area or it's a ranch. So you work a lot in my friends at a bend. You mentioned that I've had twenty five years of exchanges bed. Very fortunate from Argentina, scientists and Chilean going back and forth and get to share these stories. What works what doesn't and they invest in private land work like we do now down there, and you get landscape level change with one family, if they decide to for instance, only kill the offending Puma. So that happens up here they will historically go out and kill every cat in the ranch. But if you tell him you, you know, just kill the offending cat. The others are being good neaten. The fewer nocco that are on the hill. You know, and. That's all of a sudden a landscape level change, but it's messy conservation. It's like drinking coffee and fixed and fence up here down there..
"puma" Discussed on MeatEater Podcast
"Mr williams. Gator wrestler a dolphin trainer. So I told him and there's this long pregnant pause, and he goes Juno. It snows in Montana. Mike got anyway, he goes, you don't have a chance in hell unless you show up and get relationships. I got a line of students from here and all over the world bows, men's kind of the mecca for wildlife work here. We're very lucky with the college is here for wildlife and fishery, so okay, I'd loaded everything into my Jeep hung in old shark jaw on my mirror, drove out west and eventually. Walked into his office. And he about fell out of his chair. And anyway, still a dear friend today, and he showed up at one of my book signings in Seattle, which was kind of heart warming to. But that's how I got the Montana thirty years ago eighty eight all right when Yellowstone was burning so Johnson, Lyon work. Well, I came he actually had me working on Bighorn, sheep, black bear moose. It took trying to create a funded study to get a masters degree. Right. It's got to be funded. You gotta stipend, and I had a lot of projects that were like, really good. But then they'd stop. And then one day I walked into his office. He called me in and he was sit out and he throws this Morris Hornak, or he's kind of the patron Saint of 'Pumas on the planet did all the original work in another dear friend, but he throws his monograph from Idaho. The first study ever done on on Puma outlines if you will on my lap. And I looked at that. And forget to him. I said, oh, yeah. And he goes, well, you got to pass the test. Add to go up meet the biologist and Augusta and Florida and California, Mike, okay this begun, and I drove up there, and we hit it. Off right away. And so yeah. Then from then on whether it was working on cats directly supporting students working on cats working on hunting seasons for cats. You know, working with South Americans cads thirty years goes by in a blink. So kademi we are. Yeah. I'll say name for one, and then you say name flaunt. And then you say name from one will see how if we can get around twice. K painter. Catamounts panther. Cougar. Puma Panji mountain line out. To tap out. What did we miss? I mean. Thank you. You did Kadam out right? Like in back in Boone's day. Dana Boone's day, they said painter painter. And there's some South America named sue. That's what I'm drawing a blank Puma pension. Cisco may. Tons of say, that's my colleagues say listen, Kootenai, tribes and mispronouncing that and and but what does the word me? It's a word from outline. Okay. Why are there? So many names. I personally think that as as humans, you know, when we, you know, we we evolved in in and came out of radiata of Africa. Right. And yet hunt your hunter-gatherers originally. And and I think that as humans around the planet. We hold these both prey species and predators are large carnivores in very high regard. And and we as because we're humans and typically not the prey, oh now, we associate with the predators. And I think when you do that whether it's native cultures or or or around the world or even today people kind of associated here deer hunter, you know, you realize how clumsy you are versus amount line. And how they are not, you know, and I I just think people create folklore and stories and campfire stories because we can associate relate to them a little bit, you know, as a deer hunter when you're pursuing dear. You're kind of doing what what am lines? Right. And I imagined through time. Snow leopards Tigers cats the same these different cultures around the planet all have different folklore stories and how they relate to that fellow carnivore real. It's kinda surprising in the name thing. I don't wanna be its death. But it's interesting because. Meal. Dear right. Not a hell of a lot of ways. You know, most things there's not then you have these kinda like examples like that. This carried so many titles with so I mean names with it. You know, wolverines. Right.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, Ren stuff. I'm Lauren vocal bomb. And I'm here today to talk about how family feuds can change the world. For example, if only two brothers named and Rudy dos. Ler had learned to get along Germany's kgab route or dos. Ler might have bested Nike is the world's top sports footwear company today. Instead, the brothers bitter feuding resulted in the brood Ostler brand that's German for dos. Ler brothers being split in half and reborn as a Dita's and Puma which today are the world's second and third top sports shoe businesses eight off or Audie dos. Ler began making shoes and his mother's laundry room shortly after returning home to the Bavarian village of heads Coon oka- following World War One his business did well and his older brother Rudolph or Rudy dos. Ler joined him a few years later to help shy. Audie was the creative force and brains behind the business while extroverted Rudy was these salesmen, the brothers Dassler soon gained a claim for rolling out the first track spikes, but the company really took off after the break. Others persuaded American Olympic athlete Jesse Owens to wear their shoes in the nineteen thirty six Berlin Olympics. He did and he won four gold medals while doing so yet it wasn't quite the triumph. It should have been for the brothers. As things were beginning to sour between the two the bad blooded started a few years earlier in nineteen thirty three when Addy's sixteen year old wife tried to interfere in the business Rudy was not pleased. It didn't help that audience and Rudy's families live together in the same town, home and their wives didn't really get along. But the breaking point came during a World War Two air raid Rudy and his family were tucked into a bomb shelter and as audience family entered Audi said, the dirty bastards are back again. He was purportedly commenting on the Royal airforce planes roaring overhead but Rudy was positive. Audie was referring to his family from there things quickly unraveled when Rudy was called up to serve in the Nazi military in nineteen forty three. He was sure that Audie had arranged it to have him sent away from the factory. Anxious to get back Rudy deserted his post in nineteen Forty-five later when arrested for desertion. He again, blamed ATI who it appears did snitch on him after a few more scuffles. The to split up the company in nineteen forty eight moving assets and employees into one of two competing operations located on opposite sides of the off river that flowed through the town ATI renamed his business. Adidas combining his first and last names Rudy did the same dubbing his Rueda though. He later changed it to Puma soon. Most of the town's citizens were employed by either Adidas or Puma in these siblings, intense rivalry spread throughout the town. If you worked for one company, you did not socialize with employees of the other marrying across enemy lines was strictly forbidden. You only shopped in the stores on the same side as the river as the factory in which you were employed overtime. Adidas far surpassed Puma in sales, thanks to audience creativity and technical acumen, though Puma also did quite well. But while the two were hard at work competing against one another they. Paid no attention to another shoe company Nike that was quietly gaining market. Share today Nike is king of the sports shoe business with thousand seventeen sales of twenty one billion dollars compared to Adidas as ten billion dollars and 'Pumas two billion the brothers did speak to one another a few times later in life. But they never reconciled. Both died in the nineteen seventies and were buried at opposite ends of the local cemetery their feud finally ended in two thousand nine when employees of both companies played together in a friendly soccer match. Nonetheless, the dos liberal epic fight was named by time magazine as one of history's top ten family feuds alongside such notables as Cain and Abel and the hatfields and mccoys.

"Even in the league, what he doing. He's playing right now, sin jello, we love you, but really, you want to look up the step, but he was like eleven thirty two on threes or something like that. He shot at a lot of threes one game. So mellows when everything's great. Awesome. Okay. Everyone says he's special and then jello is the one that we've kind of the middle. It's always the middle tough. So there's zero to there's a MB one, and there's a jello, three, which has all their first shoes confusing, but they each have their own shoes for them for you know what? And is hold lavar this and he didn't want to own it. But he reminds me so much of Serena Williams. Father. My background is and what Richard Williams say was special the he wasn't as fisted in terms of his delivery, but there are stories, legendary stories of him, walking into Nike disci- Rena to her first night. He deal with a leg, a mannequin leg Brown mannequin leg with a sneaker attached to and it's like, this is this you that's gone sale. Go make this money, and it was just a Brown mannequin legs sitting on top with a conference table in front of all of these Nike executives. I don't know how true story is. I don't know if there's a lot of type associated with it, but I do know that for him to have that vision and he signed Serena to a deal before she even wanna slam. He was. So he so believed in her and they and the whole family knew that she would be the star and that she would be as great as she is. And they were like getting them like I'm telling you and congrats, whoever had the the wherewithal to sign her early on and believe in it, but it was Puma whom? Yes. Remember the catch the cat sued the legendary Rita. Katz. She might go back to. But my point is, is that I just feel like lavar is doing something very similar to that, and it sometimes doesn't always hit right away, but he setting this blueprint of what is possible. I'm all for that. And he's been so quiet because I think someone told him you've been hurt hurting the business, but have you noticed how quiet he's he's more so so like lavar thing, he'll focus in and latch on something and then just go in on that. So when he was in Lithuania, it was about the two boys in the team. Now he's really focused on the j. as doing the puppets busy. Yeah, he's going to come back into the brand, but I think the biggest thing is so many people have asked me, like, would you say it was a failure already? I was like it's only one year, like when you sign a shoe deal with the brand,.
