California considers worker notification for coronavirus exposure
"You may want to know whether a person at your workplace has tested positive for Kobe 19. Some lawmakers in Sacramento are trying to pass a law that says your employer would have to tell you if a coworker has contracted the virus. Your boss would have to let you know within 24 hours if someone at your office has been exposed to the Corona virus, Assemblywoman Eloise Gomez Reyes is the author of The Proposed law. Workplaces are Ground zero for Covert 19. Outbreak. The thinking is, this bill could have widespread support because who wouldn't want to know if they've been exposed to Cove in 19 assembly member Robert Riva says it gives people a chance to take the necessary precautions to not only protect themselves but to protect their family. Labor leaders also think the proposed law is a Sancho old just like the workers without a requirement. Report.

Norman's Cay Empire Carlos eventually heard about Georgia's threats at first. He dismissed them knowing that George was a veritable. Nobody now but when George kept talking smack Carlos started to get angry his ego which was getting bigger by the day couldn't stand someone else. Taking credit for his success. He was going to have to shut George up one afternoon. The Miami George got into his car only to realize heaping blocked in on three signs immediately. He knew something was wrong. He was a sitting duck for a gunman he reversed planning to plow through the small car behind him but then changed his mind. If that took too long it would still leave him exposed. He decided to make a break for it and jumped out of the car. He barely made it down the block when the car exploded had George stuck around any longer he would have died. Everyone agreed that Carlos must have been behind the car bombing. No one else had a reason to want George dead but instead of scaring George into submission the attempted murder only made him doubled down in fact it was the tipping point for him to finally follow through on his threats. George headed back to Boston. And early nineteen seventy nine and reconnected with a few mall. Guys he'd known from his Danbury days. They helped him put together. A team of military veterans to accompany him to Norman's cay where he wanted to carry out the hit in person. He wasn't sure if he actually wanted to kill Carlos but striking Carlos on his own territory would at least prove that George wouldn't be pushed around George gave them up team a one hundred and twenty five thousand dollar down payment to stuck up on grenades and bazookas to distract the guards while George took Carlos out himself but that was as far as the plot went when Umberto heard about the plans he scolded George for letting his emotions get the better of him. If he attacked Carlos it would start a war amongst the cartel in Colombia. That would get all of them and Umberto's family killed. George realized Burto was right. He was letting Carlos get in his head. His grudge had drawn him away from what he was best at smuggling drugs and making money let Carlos have his intrigue and Grand Schemes. George was done with that by nineteen eighty. George had refocused on his business and was doing well.

"Trip with millions of dollars in cash for himself. Carlos and they Colombian suppliers including Pablo Escobar. Meanwhile Carlos had been expanding their network of suppliers and buying a Caribbean island. They could use as their base of operations though. They were raking in money. By nineteen seventy seven. Neither man was satisfied. In fact George was teetering on. Burn out he wanted to transition to a less risky managerial role hoping to cash out. Soon Carlos though had endless energy he was planning to build a cocaine empire on the Bahamian of Norman's Cay. Not only would it be a trafficking base but it would also be a springboard to finally kick start. His political ambitions long dreamed of becoming a mythical leader like Adolf Hitler Shea Guevarra Newman's key would be his first kingdom allowing him to launch a revolution that would take over Columbia and eventually install him as dictator all his years of half planning were giving way his unbridled ambition. The only problem for Carlos was George. His partner wasn't on board with the NORMANS key. Plan after he'd visited the island in the summer of nineteen seventy seven. It was clear that Georgia's vision of their future was a bit limited. It didn't help that. Carlos says new fugitive friend Robert VESCO piled onto Carlos's concerns insisting that George would hold him back Carlos knew he had a point but still the thought of confronting. George was uncomfortable. There was no way he wouldn't take it personally. So con- loose route that felt far easier and safer consolidate his empire to cut out his business partner. Then informed George a little insurance policy I Carlos got in touch with Richard Ba- relay their distributor in Los Angeles calls told Richard that from now on he was going to be supplying the pure cocaine using some other smugglers. George would still continue his runs because warned that he couldn't guarantee the quality of the product anymore. Richard had been in drug trafficking long enough to see through the lie but also knew better than to say anything. Carlos direct access to the best cocaine took precedence so richards loyalty to George took second place. This was business after all. It wasn't long before I could tell something was off. Richard began complaining that the quality of the cocaine George brought to him wasn't as good as it used to be. It had already been cut by the time it got to La. Certainly not the pure stuff they will used to. George was shocked with each run. Richards distaste for the lesser product grew. In fact. Sometimes he didn't even want the cocaine was offering. This odd behavior Causes George to Cool Carlos. Someone was messing with him..

"Months taught him anything it was that the cocaine weld was a bit too intense for him if he carlos just did this for another year or so he'd be able to cash out and buy a Nice House on the Mediterranean coast when the two business partners finally sat down to talk brass tacks and Carlos Plan for Norman's Cay. George was shocked to discover how far Carlos had already gone. He hadn't realized Carlos had already bought the island much less started work on it. This wasn't what they planned as George pointed out basing. Oh the operations on one island wasn't a good idea for one thing. They were limitless possibilities for where that cocaine could land. The shouldn't limit themselves just flying through the Bahamas and into Florida for another thing. It put them at risk to be so predictable. It wouldn't be hard for law enforcement to figure out their roots as soon as they realized that everything was going through. Newman's key what George didn't say. Was that running the same routes all. The time was boring with none of the think on your feet excitement that he preferred Carlos wasn't giving up that's easily he counted. He didn't care if law enforcement tailed them. Money could buy them power and freedom. His new friend Robert VESCO had promised to introduce them to the famously corrupt president of the Bahamas whom they could easily buy off. Then they'd be safe to run their business and they'd be nothing the US government or anyone else could do about it. In fact Carlos wanted everyone to know where he was and what he was doing he wanted to be famous and respected to have people think of him like Adolf Hitler and Che Guevara. Once he had that renown. He turned his sights to taking over Columbia. George was exasperated. This level of showmanship wasn't what he'd signed up for in the back of his mind. He'd hoped he'd have all the money he needed to cash out before Carlos even got his gnomes key operation up and running. George had good reason to believe this. They just heard from Berry that he'd finally finished retrofitting his plane if he could transport hundreds of kilos into the US at a time. George would be able to cash out pretty soon so Carlos and George Agree to disagree for the time being and focused on Berry. His first flight was relatively simple. Carlos and George would arrange the transport some Colombian suppliers but wouldn't handle the US distribution instead. They get paid when they handed of the cocaine to the suppliers guys in the US. This did however mean that they'd have to exchange the cocaine and money simultaneously in person normally Georgian Carlos would avoid this as would most drug traffickers the chance that someone would get trigger happy and decide to keep both cash and product for themselves was generally considered too high but the payout was going to be a good one a million dollars each for Georgia and Carlos and three million for Barry. Today that would be worth more than four million for the partners and nearly thirteen million for the pilots. Plus the first shipment would signal that they were entirely independent of the Colombians in no time at all. They could expand the transplant operation to move clients. A couple of weeks later Berry flew from North Carolina to the Bahamas to Columbia. And back again he preferred landing in North Carolina as opposed to Florida where law enforcement was more likely to be watching for smuggling then he drove down to Florida with the two hundred fifty kilos of cocaine. The cocaine was divided in half and each set of one hundred and twenty five kilos was put in the back of a rental car. Barry Park because outside his condo building in Fort Lauderdale the next day the Colombian heavies arrived at a specific time and Berry gave them the keys to one of the cars. The day after that the Colombians came back with two suitcases full of one point. Two five million dollars each in the hot humid condo. George and Barry countered the cash out twice to make sure it was all their Carlos watched the Colombians for any sign that they might try to go for their guns when it was clear that all the money was there berry gingerly took out the keys to the second car and handed them over to the Colombians. The Colombians backed out the door equally concerned about being double crossed when.

"The summer of Nineteen seventy seven thirty four year old George Young and twenty seven year old. Carlos later will millionaires in a matter of months. They traffic hundreds of kilos of cocaine from Colombia to consumers in Los Angeles still the millions of dollars. Carlos and George pocketed accounted for just a fraction of what they'd make for their suppliers and this was before their own smuggling operation was even up and running by July. Carlos had drummed up so much business that they had more cocaine than George could carry on commercial flights so the next option was to start chartering private jets between Miami and La after all. They had the money George took to his new role. Delighting addressing the part of an oil magnate or European royal to deflect suspicion. Has He flew fifty kilos of cocaine out and came back with more than two million dollars. The rapid escalation was dizzying at the beginning of the year Georgian. Kalos hadn't even been sure they'd be able to get potential Colombian suppliers to take them seriously and now they were two of the most in demand men in the Americas making more money in a week. The nate ever seen before whenever George wasn't in the air he found himself treated like a celebrity hounded by people who praised him and then tried to Mooch off him as much as he'd always wanted money and approval. He was surprised to feel overwhelmed. The piles of cash were growing so high that George didn't know what to do with all of it. He started to feel fake can meaningless just like most.

"Cash and an extra suitcase thinking on his feet. Corny explained he and his daughter had picked up a hitchhiker along the way a few miles back the hitchhiker had demanded. They let him out and had disappeared into the forest. He told the officials he didn't know any more than that. While they let Courtney go. The officials were suspicious of this supposed. Hitchhiker THEY RAN. Carlos's passport and immediately discovered his criminal record. Clearly this felon was trying to cross the US border on foot following protocol. They called up the search dogs and began sweeping the woods. Meanwhile Courtney was speeding away from the checkpoint heading home even though Carlos still out there on his own. He was cutting his losses in his mind. It was the Columbians own fault for panicking and taking off when he got back to Massachusetts. Courtney at least stopped by to tell George what had happened. Unsurprisingly George freaked out. He was sure the feds would catch Carlos and find out they would connected. He couldn't be sitting around with fifty kilos of cocaine waiting for them to come knocking on his door. George also knew that there were likely a lot of powerful and dangerous Colombians. Who were expecting Carlos to have already delivered their cocaine and George had no interest in pissing them off either. Though George held out for several days when no word from Carlos came. He decided he couldn't wait any longer for all he knew his business partner was dead somewhere in the Vermont backwards. George wasn't one to just let things happen to him. He was the kind of guy who made things happen. Even if he wasn't always sure how they turn out. So George got to work without Carlos. He had no way of getting the cocaine to its plan destination but he could sell it and funnel the money back to their contacts. He called up an old contact in southern California. A Manhattan Beach Guy. He used to sell marijuana to not only did Richard. Burri lay manage most of the drug sales in Los Angeles. He also knew everyone. If anyone could move fifty kilos quickly it would be Richard. George goes on the next flight to upon his arrival. Richard took one look at the pure cocaine and nearly fainted. He'd been selling mediocre product compared to Georgia stuff and he was sure he could charge a premium for this within five days. Richard had sold the whole lot for two point. Three five million dollars which would be more than ten million dollars today. The two men would giddy with excitement. Richard knew he just become the premier cocaine source in Los Angeles where the market was just starting to boom? He wanted to know how quickly George could get more but that would have to wait. Now that he'd made the money George he had to track down the Colombians on the East Coast. Who'd hired him and Carlos to move those kilos and pay them back immediately once he gave the Colombians their share of the prophets and they counted the money they'd realize not only that he was reliable but that he just made them more money than they'd asked for if he was careful. George might just be able to make Carlos's massive slip up their eternal payday so he and Richard packed up all the cash in a few camera cases and fluids back from La to Massachusetts they might be seasoned smugglers but they were still convinced that every moment the police might catch them. Somehow George made it all the way back to a friend's house without incident. He didn't dare stay at his parents in case the police were onto him. And just as he was starting to strategize about how to track down the Colombians he finally heard.

"This is our second episode in a four part series about powerful cocaine traffickers. George Young and Carlos later rebus last week. We got to know these two misfit criminals one American and one Colombian as they entered the world of smuggling and organized crime in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies. This week. We'll see how their business partnership took off as the almost singlehandedly built both the supply and demand for the US cocaine market. When George Young met twenty five year old Carlos later on their first day in the Federal Correctional Institute in Connecticut? Neither man knew their fates would soon be inextricably linked. It was nineteen seventy four. George had been caught after jumping bail on federal marijuana charge undeterred. He planned to make as many contacts as possible while in prison the way he saw it a little jail time could actually help grow his cannabis smuggling business. Carlos also doing time for marijuana. Possession and stealing cars was equally opportunistic. He hoped to glean whatever information he could from his fellow inmates so he could use it later to break the Colombian cocaine market into the United States. As soon as the two started chatting they realized how much they had in common when he heard about Carlos smuggling and trafficking experience George felt smugly reassured with context like Carlos of course he could grow his business while locked up. If felt like a fortuitous stunt to an otherwise grim time for Carlos rubbing elbows with George was a dream come true given his lofty goal of being a cocaine trafficking magnet with Georgia years of experience and distribution contacts on both coasts. Carlos could have an incredible advantage. Such relationships could be hard for Colombian to get otherwise. All Carlos had do was sell George. On the cocaine industry Georgia's knowledge of cocaine was pretty basic. He knew it was a popular Celebrity Party. Drug and then it came from Columbia. He'd never tried it himself. It wasn't in wide circulation in the US. Frankly it never even occurred to him to try to traffic hit. Carlos started with the basics. Production costs were low in Columbia. So a kilo pure cocaine sold for anywhere from four to six thousand. Us dollars the same amount sold wholesale in the US for.

"It's a wonder that Georgia and Carlos were able to build such a successful illegal business considering. What an odd couple they were. The two were loyal as brothers bonded in their desire for money and status yet their attitudes towards smuggling were polar opposites Carlos was obsessive detail oriented and quietly manipulative. George on the other hand was an overconfident adrenaline junkie. He only thought is far ahead. Is where the next party was. It made sense then that their plans for the Prophets. Were also quite different. George wanted to have fun afford a luxurious lifestyle and have tangible proof. He was successful. But Carlos was a bit more quixotic he had visions of Granja and wanted to take on the world. Take one example from April nineteen seventy seven five years in their partnership had become incredibly lucrative. Carlos had brought his family up to CAPE COD on a trip to visit. George Naturally Carlos always wanted to check out the finer things so he suggested they pop by the local BMW DEALERSHIP. Thirty four year old. George kept a low profile. Having been the CAPE COD LOCAL FOR YEARS STILL. He loved fast cars and was happy to tag along with Carlos. His twenty-seven-year-old business ponder was a bit of an auto savant. Carlos family even had a dealership and party shopping Columbia but it was hard to get the latest American and European 'cause so naturally a Massachusetts BMW outpost was like a candy shop. Carlos made a beeline for a black three. Eighteen is sports car as soon as they got there. How much did it cost? Assuming the two men were just browsing a salesman. Told them it'd be around. Eleven thousand dollars worth over forty five thousand dollars today. Carlos shrugged nodded done number sounded rights so he took out a paper bag full of cash and counted out. Eleven thousand dollars for the salesman both George and the sales rep were shocked. Paying in cash was one thing but it was clear that eleven thousand dollars barely made a dent in the bills and Carlos paper bag off this George broke his usually placid composure. He pulled his pond outside and demanded to know what he was doing. Carlos pushed back confused. He didn't see anything wrong with the transaction. He wanted the car in fact he planned to cruise by another dealership afterwards and snag a flashy car for his wife. That was the point of earning all this money. He told George to spend it and make sure people knew you had it. George didn't disagree on principle but he explained to Carlos that this wasn't the time or place to make a splash people in Massachusetts would notice after all that salesman was never going to forget the Colombian guy who walked in and paid cash for BMW. Sports car no questions asked and it certainly didn't make matters better that Carlos wasn't even legally allowed into the United States. Kalos brushed these concerns off while he did agree not to buy a cafe his wife that day he wasn't done shopping he still wanted to check out some property elsewhere on the Cape. His mum might like a house. Carlos desire to be splashy and Georgia's instinct to fly under the radar made sense in light of their backgrounds. George young grew up in the nineteen forties in weymouth Massachusetts US above and fishing town south of Boston. They were the portrait of America. His father owned a heating oil business. His mother often worked in clothing retail and his oldest sister was a star student. The young's lived comfortably though. Money was still often a source of conflict George's father. Fred gambled which only made the chip on his shoulder worse when his older brother? An engineer tried to help out with family expenses between Fred's gambling and less than lavish income money strange Georgia's parents relationship by the time George was in junior high. His Mother Erman regularly threatened to leave though she never did her. Disappointment with the family's financial situation never went away given his surroundings. It made sense that George inherited his father's penchant for adrenaline rushes and his mother's frustration for budgets. Though his childhood was average Georgia's attitudes started to suffer at school undiagnosed. Adhd meant he struggled to focus and his grades plummeted. All of this made him feel. He couldn't meet expectations so he often pushed back against authority going into high school. George decided to prove himself by becoming a football star. He worked hard to make the varsity squad but the sheen wall off when he discovered the coaches strict rules including a curfew and a minimum GPA. George didn't like being told what to do especially when it infringed on partying with his friends and taking girls out soon. He was skipping practice and cheating in school in Nineteen fifty. Seven Jack Kerouac novel on. The road came out for sixteen year old. George. It gave him a sense of direction. He dreamed of hitch hiking around the country living on the edge of society and trying new things. He craved the excitement and adventure. Karak's suggested in line with his new desires.

The PT Cruiser: A Custom-Built Downfall
"Into the new Millennium Chrysler had a lot of good energy surrounding them stirred the prowler. He didn't do amazing. But it gave Chrysler much-needed image rebranding and got people excited for what was to come. They had spent the better part of a decade designing and engineering a new car using the most sophisticated technology on the planet and they were confident it was going to be a hit. The PT Cruiser was Chrysler's flers savior. Chrysler chose a plant into Luca Mexico right outside of Mexico City to begin production on the new car. This Chrysler plant had a reputation for building. High Quality. Cars on a shoestring budget says workers were not paid very well. I don't know This plant also made dodge see brings and strategize strategists dodge stratos the Gulf of the year. Two thousand the first year of production for the PT Cruiser was to build one hundred eighty thousand thousand of them but Chrysler immediately ran into a problem. The car in the engine were assembled on separate production lines until the engine has to go into into the engine bay. Chrysler did this all the time but because everything on the PT cruiser was machine to fit perfectly. There is literally no room for error. The engine in Bay had only point six of an inch clearance experience. Workers struggled to fit the engine into the pizza. Cruiser and for the first couple of weeks of production. The only we finished one car a day for Reference Ferrari today builds about twenty cars a day. The only way that deluca plant could do it was by stopping both assembly assembly lines until the engine had been installed in one car something needed to be done quickly if they were ever going to meet the one hundred eighty thousand car quota can you imagine being on the production line and like you're in the middle somewhere like do I'm good at making doors putting doors on this thing right those baths at the time. Just do your job put the engine. I do WANNA be the guy gets to run up and like hit the red but the next stop C. I. A.. You got to put the engineering guys what you will need. You solve the problem. Exact Gary Henson told the plant manager Luiz Rivas to practice the process for two weeks. The workers set up a three section practice area in a corner of the factory. Each sector had five workers and if they could not complete their task before the car move to the next section the line would hold until the could seems pretty reasonable at the end of the two week practice session. The plant went from one car a day to one car. Every ten minutes conventionally as production got into a groove and Chrysler selling cars that deluca plant could build one. PT Cruiser every eighty seconds. Problem solve so act. That whole thing was because there is only point. Six of an inch I think combined or light so like when you're dropping the motor and before the hoods on. Yeah you have a little bit more than half an inch to squeeze in the voter to get it in in place because they used all these cats systems engineers designed it to be as practical and like utilitarian. Tehran is possible right so they used every square inch every square inch of space and then the workers figured it out engineers are Dick's the year two thousand was huge for the PT cruiser. The car officially went on sale in March and people went crazy for them for the first year the not only came in two trim levels base model. PT's had an MS RPM of fifteen thousand four hundred fifty dollars and the highest trim level the limited addition came in at eighteen thousand two hundred sixty which according to my inflation calculator. Fifteen thousand four fifty in today's money as twenty three thousand one hundred seventy one dollars. It's more expensive than I thought. And then the top of the line trim at eighteen thousand to sixty is the same as is twenty seven thousand three hundred eighty five dollars to twenty three thousand dollar car or twenty seven thousand dollar car. What what can you get for twenty three grand today civics Cross track severe across getting a Nice Kia. If you'd like but it was going up against Camrys and yes and probably record and there's probably a lot of people like people cross shop really weird stuff all the time I bet. There's people cross shopping against like GPS Sherry Raff four four. Yeah that kind of stuff pretty pretty small compared to this right so this had five more cubic feet of cargo space raffling around our. Okay Yeah Okay Anyway at that price point even the most expensive. PT was pretty affordable customers loved the PTA for its unique heritage inspired. Styling and utilitarian design nine. Don't you ever say retro. It was reliable cheap fund and had a cool factor. It didn't look anything else on the road which was again we have to remember. This car is a huge deal back then and that was a large reason why was the looks pretty groundbreaking dealers couldn't keep these things in stock and soon weightless filled up one in guy from Louisiana bought one of the first. PT's in his State and someone stopped him on the street and immediately bought it with cash for more than he paid even though it ahead of cracked windshield. That shows the demand for these cars. The hype for the Peachy cruiser created was on par with the new beetle. At the time. It was a hit right off the bat and the bigwigs at Chrysler eating it up especially Tom Gale Tom Gale and senior vice president of design. Trevor Creed these two guys were the official hype men for the cruiser. They always knew when to drop a cruiser mania or PT fever interviewed to blow the whole situation out out of proportion so most of the quotes in this book are from these two guys and to their own horn a little bit there to their own horn there too in the PT's horn fine. It's hilarious because Tom Gale was involved in a lot of other cars at Chrysler head of design like he was one of the reasons. The Viper forgot built he. was you know the NEON S Rt.. He was head of. Sat for Awhile. Yeah he's a hot rod enthusiasts. Yeah but like he's super jazzed about the P. T. he as well but also it makes sense 'cause like last week we learned they sold over a million of these right. Yeah so he's making money honey. You know you go sell a million of anything. You're doing pretty good. That's true. We were like different people last week. uh-huh whether it was a rear luggage rack front end bra or polished. Chrome Wheels Chrysler encourage drivers to customize their. PT's Tom Tom Gale said it fits any lifestyle. Some may seem as a tribute to the classic era a street rod others as multifaceted and functional light truck in a class last of its own or some is simply a cool senate wheel boy. Tom The speed equipment manufacturing association or SEMA show in late two thousand was packed. Full of custom PD cruisers. This is when it gets really good. There was a Louis Vitton. Cruiser Maytag hewer cruiser cruiser. Even a futuristic woody concept Tom Gale personally debuted gt cruiser concept with a turbocharged. Two point. Four liter inline nine four but the most exciting had to be the Brian. Setzer of Self Setzer cruiser Accidentally Typing Seltzer. I I thought his name was. Brian Seltzer L. Just so these are all just one off. Build that people brought to seem Became you have your laptop in front of you. I suggest you look up the volume peekers right now. I'll describe the picture that I see Yup Bright Candy Blue Chrome wheels. It has red flames going down the side with lock texts that says vote them in and the flames and a guy standing outside at Planer. Red Guitar Guy. That's fine Seltzer. Dude if you took the year two thousand and boiled down into a syrup the boom cruiser is just that like Jeremiah mentioned. It's painted in electric blue with yellow and orange flames. This was customized is by Chrysler. PACIFICA advanced product design center. It features a built in guitar rack. An amplifier inside the cab and the word vote on the fender which was actually a promotion for Seltzer. 's album of the same name. Oh my tail lights and bright orange. Leather

Does you have something signed where you would ESPN iffy going to? I mean, so if all questions about the opponent, but a conga well, I was set up early because they're battling out for the number one contender spot. I don't know remember dealing white was waiting on something that happened from the WBZ. So I don't know if they're gonna later make this some sort of an eliminator, but on the press release for mattress says that they're battling the number one contender position or excuse me. Number one heavyweight spot in the WBZ at the London true on Saturday, if W B O WBZ WBC. So after this is highly ranked in the WC, I take I mean, I guess I mean. Yeah. The one contenders. But sounds good readers is coming off a win a brand. Dillion already number one contender isn't that? Why he's already mad because he's saying he's number one, but everyone else's getting shot and the number ten in WBZ so much rule how they are doing that. He's gonna be over. Well, maybe a con they're just being slick with the words being DeLeon white is already the number one contender. Maybe they're saying they're battling out for that spot. Obviously if Dylan lose he's no longer the number one contender because you're right. I'm on the WBZ rankings and their last updated on the eleventh of April and says ten spot for Oscar Rivas who happens to be ranked across all say here. WPA number six WBZ number ten IBF number seven and WBO number five with their win over or buying Genesee. Definitely stuff up across a thinking about his. But one thing that I do wanna. Louis tease, you shit on this as you say that's as big as win. But now that big is win is the one that propped Oscar Rivas on all four saying somebody's got him with white. I mean, impressively you I mean what what what if I did t to get at he'd be Jennings? Looking for me. And then we know, but yeah, man, I think it definitely one of the good win for Oscar. He was a plus for eighty five hundred definitely made money off them that we can be able to you after even but yeah, man the win over over Brian Jennings. I don't like say that it's bad. But again, I think after readers did it. In a way that that maybe captured more of the public's I I don't know how many people seeing that fight with a with Jennings. Ortiz on HBO, but I could imagine that a lot of people after even rally back in in the twelve around ended up stopping Brian Jennings in the fact, he come forward, and he's like a to do is like. Non stop in your face kind of pressure north there. So I I'm really. Not with excited, but I'm happy that this is the kind of Ponant dealing got to me is gonna make for damn damn good fight. Yeah. I was gonna say I was actually going to say I think we need to give Eddie Hannah bit of credit. Hey, I know that always why are you put him on the Dami thumbnail? I know what you're thinking. That was my I mean, people aren't to chat and listeners we often very hard on any handful through done a show, and as he failed didn't what.

"Okay. And the next time he came into the rock venue. And then every time he comes hermit crabs into something bigger. My favorite time is he came. I think this was like three or four years ago. Maybe he was I was in Kentucky think it was in Virginia doing my first college. And then like I saw in Buffalo's Hannibal funches Marcello Gueo. They're all up there. Like, they'll be responsible. Just drive the buffalo. Hang on my friends, so taxes them takes him. I might want to do show in Cleveland tomorrow, and I had fallen asleep and I woke up at like four in the morning, and I saw that and my oh, all right. So I get my car start driving. And then I'm sending tax on my. Hey, let's try from where from Virginia he was in buffalo. He's I think my won't do show including Amaro. So I'm like start driving. I start messaging and there was this venue called the Nash on eightieth. There's like old Slovenian home. And it's an epicenter of where the housing crisis hit. No one goes over there and the membership is now handfuls of people, right? But the there's as young dude who grew up in trying to save the space and keep it, vibrant, whatever. So I done a show there before. So it was okay. Can we do this last minute? He's like, okay. We'll make it happen. I'm cool. And then he thought I was talking for the next week. So he had to go by booze go to shit. And then like the group numbers had to like do the door the bartending. Do this do that. And literally like we announced a show it to and almost four hundred people came out wasn't as part of Cleveland. No one goes to we told everyone to take. Uber's lifts in the drivers are like where we're going and only two drivers will go pick people up. Really? Yeah. And that shit was so fucking that felt like everything like what comedy should feel like like everyone's here. We're having a good time. We're vibe in like Philly iota club. Like, this is fun. But like get out. We have another show. Right. You know, like, there's no it doesn't feel like a community just feels like consumption. Yeah. Just fine. But it's like that, you know. Those shows in Cleveland make me feel like there's something everything's building towards something. I don't know what it is. But like, I was just morning meltdown. We drove has meltdown Valentine we early. Yeah. Man. Yeah. Because it was the hang built him. And there was no show bind at no, he stay there. All night. Yeah. Would be there. They closed. The comic bookstore is the best. So you wanted to like, desolate area did a show four hundred people. I love the soldiers Landon, slowly just like started reaching out to people and then agents and managers started reaching out to me. And my oh, this is cool. But I just didn't realize for until rep you now, no no to book to book their people. So when. What super funny is when I did my half hour people were like Ramon Rivas. He's a talent buyer. Wow. So it was a good thing. They knew my name. But it was a bad thing because context, but you weren't worried about that. I still don't worry about guy had a manager for like a year. But I don't I like now I'm just back solo like DIY. Yeah. And it feels fine. Feels so fine. He said fine. Okay. You could tell I just know the the, you know, the tone of. No, you got the lyrics. But the idea that like some people again a mental hurdle to get over is. And I've heard comic say I would produce shows. But I don't want to be known as a producer. I just had to I did Sarka perform more athletes, and then I was good at it. Yeah. Because I Mike I it's a little it's very it's a lot of stress and anxiety, dealing with people's egos and expectations and desires for things. They're not ready for like keeping things like all these continent. Just like, I as my social position changed in Cleveland. Like, I'm still broke living with my family, but suddenly people are like Ramones here. I got to try to impress. Right. Because I run these open mics or work at the factory with Aaron and everyone's just trying to get on. And it's just a weird. Like oh..

I got to work harder for less, and it's hard could have been like fuck this. But instead he figured away around an admirable mom did the same thing. Same thing. And then Ramon Rivas number twos. About to do the same. There's a lot of. Self starting hustle and that, but there's also very little if any stability. Yeah. So like everything you get is. Because you went and got. Yeah. And so, you know, saying all that to go to how I approached comedy. Like once I found it like I was where they open about it. Did you absorb it quietly coke machine style or they? It's one of those. I realized that that's something. I realized like going back the since I moved to allay going back and seeing them like, oh, you everyone in my family's worked very hard to be exactly where they're you picked up by most they weren't like lectures. No, no, no, not at all. And so like, I giving space to be that when you were like, I'm going to be a comedian. They weren't like, dude. I just put in twelve Florida. Dave question. They questioned it. And like wait, you're going to do what how much pay like nothing. But like, I wanna do it. And they're like. All right. Here's the car. Like, I didn't have a car at the time. So like I was getting from Lorraine to Cleveland for open mics by borrowing like, my mom or dad's sister's car, and so I was they would sacrifice being able to do shit that evening for me to go. Do these Mike whatever which by the way, the Mike are ready hard enough? You know what? I mean, if you inconvenience someone. Yeah. And so, and so it was one of those another reason she's another four foregin the road where you could be like, I do it. But I got a I don't want to you know, we were talking about your nephew or whoever was it's overly arguably, overly empathetic. I don't wanna put them out. Yeah.

Of Famer like I tried to spare you this early in the show because it was one of those where. You go what do we have to talk? About today how about Durell Rivas first ballot hall of Famer the best quarterback of all time, I, went I don't know unless I. Have to go to the well with five minutes to go is Durell Rivas a hall of Famer yes first. Ballot let's debate coding to the mothership if? I have to debate are you a first battle hall of Famer and the answer. Is no Did anybody goes Brett farve first ballot hall of Famer. Know anybody do. That with Jerry Rice no. Drill, Rivas I found a hall of Famer yeah see. Hall of Famer yes I bel- let's debate. No if you debate you're not a first ballot hall of Famer simple question here's one. Which defensive backs career would you want. Durell. Rebus Ed, Reed Ed Reed is a close. Yeah but I think a, lot of people go read I think most? People would go with Rivas And. Go, every the second Ed. Reed. First ballot hall of Famer lakes debate you couldn't hide from. Read for, the game yeah Ed Reed was omnipresent he was he. You know playing. Centerfield rebus is just one. Side, of the field yes mclovin every that other great. Safeties around him in his revisit like alone He was on an island yeah Read. Had Paula Malo in. His Shad I mean they, were that's the only, I mean obviously. Everyday first bout I don't know I think he's in his sixty four career interceptions. Seven returned for touchdowns at. Read But I think a. Lot of people could see some people consider. Rivas, the best quarterback of. All time by. The him and Dion to okay that's like bees before de Rivas they didn't. Really have those shutdown corners the same way and then now, everyone had to have. One well Dion was shut down he was sick he just wasn't his physical and he didn't tackle the way, drill Rivas threat if he got, a hold of it interception oh my God it was so exciting, but it feels like drill Rivas is known more for his ability to negotiate a contract then than to play. And. He, was a. Great player but let's face it if. Terrell Ribas, was playing. In a game chances are, you wouldn't see Terrell, Rivas unless they. Go and watch Terrell Rivas shutdown Reggie Wayne and you go okay well that's exciting Whereas Dion got involved in more things Rivas didn't have you didn't even have thirty interceptions in his. Career. I, don't think I mean they avoided him but how many. Interceptions Dion have Because the only way you were going to get interceptions is if you went, in their direction, and you weren't going to draw reverses direction gambling Dion Sanders fifty. Three career, pin that amazing, took nine back for touchdowns amazing Because here's a guy who was shutdown corner instill came up with all those interceptions so when you make the. Argument well nobody through in Rivas his direction, Dion took away one half of the field he. Took away your, what the patriots part of the brilliance, of when they had Rivas is they would double team the best receiver and then they would say to. Read this you got the number. Two guy all by yourself and so. You're, you're shutting down the two best receivers and. You could. Do, that. Because Rivas you could put him out there and he would. Shut somebody down Marvin Harrison would be double, team Reggie Wayne would be single on rebus yes appalling, Ed, Reed had nine career playoff interceptions.
