Empowering Medtech with Anatoly Geyfman
"Welcome back to the outcomes rocket. Sal Marquez here and today I. Have the privilege of hosting on a totally gave man. He is the CEO and Co founder of Care Avoidance, a healthcare sales enablement solution for life sciences that is doing extraordinary work for drawing out value propositions. Companies Looking to express that clearly anatoly came to work in healthcare early in his career, starting off as the lead engineer on one of the first hip compliant benefits, communication products for enterprises, he continued to work with large healthcare data sets and HR soft before. Before becoming the chief architect at Ambra. Health a cloud based medical imaging company. It was there at Ambra that Anatoly saw the need for high quality data to inform sales execution which germinated. The idea for care voyage were thrilled to have him on the podcast today, and it's such a unique platform that they're using to reach customers and for sales teams to reach their customers in a clear way Donatelli. Thank you so much for joining me today. Thank Salty. Got Be. Yeah. Absolutely. So tons of great stuff being done by your company. And so before we dive into really the meat bones of what you guys do there, I love to first arc and find out more about you and one inspires your work in healthcare. I appreciate it, and so I started working in healthcare actually when I was still in high school. I just happened to luck out and find on an internship working on one of the first hickory maple insisting that for human resources management. So that really starting my love for working with large data sets and working with privileged data, like that I continue dot read some other gigs on signatory around Maple imaging on, and that's really where I started learning about. About, the difficulty that companies have selling in healthcare. So with my may imaging gig on I, I was the chief architect company called Ambra Health on big digital medic rummaging Bloomberg, and then I switched over to more of a developer evangelists than sales engineering role, and that's where I really started looking at how companies that produce the rate products go to market. And what inspires me a about healthier? Specifically, my little corner of healthcare is helping innovators, take their market big their products to market. I think there's a lot of great innovation that's happening right now. especially with digital innovation machine learning ai off care. But I think that the past to a successful product is still at I. It's still very hard to navigate. So that's what inspires me getting these products so. So, writer audience and getting patients right treatment at the right time, eventually through through the use of our product and obviously great innovation. Yeah. You know it's That's so great, and there's so many opportunities for companies and you know the people leading them, the teams that are representing the great work that you know I mean many of these companies we have on the podcast a totally you know the. Great Work and they have great products and services and the pathway to get there. The go to market strategy isn't always super clear, and then on top of that, it's not easy to sell inside of our healthcare system and it takes forever so. All of those things are true own. Yeah, and I think that there are a lot of products that end up failing because the products and successful and because the greater market strategy is maybe not very well informed their beats not very well executed, and so if I can do anything to help that and that was where I decided to spend, my time is opening entrepreneurs with way to go to market I. Think it's great and in our vertical or our economy or health care economy, it's so necessary. So tell us a little bit about what you guys are doing. Doing at care voyage to add value to the healthcare ecosystem of innovators. Yeah. -solutely. So you know I'll start with a problem I. think the really big problem right now, the REC- at least in our little corner of the healthcare economy is data symmetry It's you know everyone makes decisions or everyone strives to make decisions in a data driven way the acquisition of data to make those decisions, your go to market or even your your product strategy is still not democratized Jesus, sometimes available and very regularly available in. Thanks. It's not available at all on companies like care. Where we're trying to do. At least off the for. Right now, we're trying to do is we're trying to democratize access to this information whether it's you know information about who's doing, what types of services takes a physicians practicing the type of and your are devices best for or on that you're pharmaceutical product is best stations for it. I think a lot of like data's available, but traditionally, it's only been available to the wealthiest layers market and so our goal is to democratize access to that. So even startups that may not have the backing of the largest feet from on me, not how hundred million dollars in the bay and can't get access to it and really execute a great girl market.
Fresh update on "rockets" discussed on Drive Time Sports
"Is entertaining the kids of the do tonight and could not be bothered to do a radio show. Chris Moore, sitting in Nice to have you with us.

You want to see your loan options, just payments and closing costs online in real time. All that's there for you, because rocket can Baseball chatter. That's what we need, and we got the right guy for you. Yeah, we got the right guy We got on MLB and he's an insider. South. Everett joins us. Says he often does talk little baseball. Mr Everett has the Friday night so far. The front and I this good man. It's good to hear from you. Yeah, well, it's nice to have a little reunited, and it feels so nice. Yeah. There you go. We have a little baseball talk about. We got a little baseball pizzas and her peaches in her. Wait. We got baseball, You know, because we got baseball. Everyone's a little nervous. I think three strikes. You're out Marlins Cardinals If we get one more Does the baseball adage? Hold up? Where are you right now? In your thoughts about what would happen if another team went through the Marlin Cardinal debacle? I don't think it would go that route. I don't think they would shut it down. I do think that It's gonna be a lot of double headers, and I think there's you know, a very truncated schedule. You know, just for the record, I was against it from the start. I think that I worry about all non isolated, non bubble sports, You know? I mean, I worry about them. I'm very hopeful for the NFL. Although I talked to a doctor, I don't know how it happens. But okay, let's give him a chance to see him try. This was Hodge part because You know, the players are going wherever the hell they want doing whatever they want, seeing whoever they want, and the only time they're respecting the protocols are when they're actually In the clubhouse or in the tunnel. But if you've noticed if you've watched the game what players are sitting in the tented area behind the dugout, nobody those dugouts are completely filled. So there's none of that. The first baseman. Don't wear a mask there, spitting all over the place. And when you hit home runs most of the time, you're getting high five. And so if you go to the ballpark, and you test negative doesn't mean you don't have it. And you're Not social distancing from anybody. You're all over your teammates. So if there's one case, there's a good at six. That's the fear, and that's my fear for the NFL. That's no yolk and certainly college but you know, college is different and the circumstances for the baseball situation Is just I don't know how to stop it, because even if players are not going to clubs and not going out, not partying, and not on tinder if they're not doing all that Are they totally isolated? Not really. No, absolutely not. And that it is. I mean, I think that your common sense legitimate concern is everyone's and you didn't want them to not do anything you want to try. Because because not trying is is just is just that and it doesn't give you any opportunity. But let me let me put a caveat on that. I did not want this season to start what I wanted. What? Because I'm worried about the long term viability of the sport. And I didn't think this hodgepodge year was that essential. I thought, you know if you think about it. Baseball started a week before the N B A in the NHL. If we didn't have the baseball season, we've survived because I hear sports updates their pack. Now this This is a ton of stuff in them. So we have sports back the problem that I thought Was the collective bargaining agreement that expires at the end of next year. And what I would have done in the NHL stole my thunder, because what the NHL has been doing this whole this whole time, not only saying a big old screw you to the America by moving their bubbles from Pittsburgh, Columbus in Vegas. To Toronto and Edmonton, But they have four years of labor peace extended on two more years so they will have labor peace till 2027. And baseball. If you thought people were mad when they were fighting over the coded plan, just wait till we get everything back and you have a chance for full stadiums and there's a wa lock out our strike. So what I thought they should have done was just bag this season blaming on Cove it yes, people would have been mad, but they wouldn't have been mad with dumb PR that those two sides did. And then just locked themselves in a room quarantine for 14 days and don't come out until you have a labor deal, and they could have done that. And they didn't know you're absolutely right. And I think probably You knew it now, But I think in retrospect, you'll be proven right about that. I was just talking earlier about the sham of the postseason that they put together and throughout on Ah You know, Friday afternoon news dump of that was that was because the networks were willing to pay them some extra cash. And remember, the owner's lied through their teeth when they said they were all broke, and I'm sorry, I didn't mean to cut you off. The the owners came out and you know the Cubs owner and the Cardinals owner with the two most egregious when they were saying, We're hemorrhaging money, I was like, Well, let's look at your books..

SpaceX launches Starship prototype on dramatic test flight
"So I up some news on space of course earlier this week, they had the successful completion of the crew demo to mission with the splashdown astronauts, Bankin and Doug. Yesterday. We had some more good news on space x with the successful test flight hundred and fifty meter hop as they are known, which is just a launch and then a quick landing of starship prototype vehicle S and five or serial number five. So this was a similar to these star hopper flight that happened last year. If you remember that and the reason, these tests are so exciting because this is the. Iteration process for the vehicle that will eventually carry humans to Mars at least that is the goal Yulon in June said that they are targeting to for the first cargo mission to Mars and twenty twenty four for the first crude mission. Among other things, this test is based XS next generation raptor engine. This test flight was a single engine vehicle. The final starship is supposed to have six raptor engines and that will. Eventually sit on rocket booster called super heavy with thirty one of the raptor engines as far as what comes next for starship. Yuan, said quote we'll do several short hops to smooth out launch process. Then go high altitude with lots and quote in reply to a tweet from rocket photographer Austin Bernard, which read quote today marks the beginning of a new era even though this is a small step, we are A. Giant leap closer to Mars than we were yesterday.

Anthony Davis Has Room to Grow
"GonNa Focus on the Lakers, which as an editor is near and dear to my heart because sharks picked the biggest red meat team on on on the table here. But they've been really impressive with us are there to one and Anthony Davis looks like probably the best player in the bubble thus far chunks. Why don't you leaders us through some of the things that have been happening with Lakers why think for the record this is called the impossibly good-looking persons corner just clarify. For. Their how dare sir? Okay so we're looking at the Lakers thing to me that's jumped out in the first three games is how they're playing when Anthony Davis playing without Lebron on. So that was been their biggest problem. All season is those non Lebron ad minutes because he idea was. Okay. If you have a D- then Lebron can rest he can get. His breaking it as time off, and they'll still be fine. But before the restart when eighty was out of the Ron, he was minus three and five, hundred, six, hundred minutes as those are important minutes Lakers have to win in the restart I mean obviously is a very small sample size but who cares where we're doing podcasts in the restart their plus night. Eighties playing without Lebron. That's just a massive flip on their whole situation and to me watching those minutes was set out to me I think number one. Not Having region Rondo. I think that really kind of low key killed their team because when rondos playing he has to have the ball right like Rondo can't play off the ball Swiss hole in the ball he's not really a threat to score someone's really guarding him and then on defense that giving you much either so like Alex the numbers when ad and Rondo without Lebron it was minus five and without Rondo they're playing Caruso and waiters with a d the floor is spread and the thing. Anthony. Davis. You don't need a traditional point guard Anthony, Davis give eighty the ball in the mid postals kill people right? He gets the ball then it kicks shooter instead of the Rondo. So it's like ADP without Rondo back great and the other thing too is eighty at the five. So they're going eighty Kuzma than like Greener Casey Caruso waiters whatever. Eighty s numbers at the five the year are insane. They're absolutely ridiculous. So cab. Looking at that with no Devellano Dwight Eighty has a usage of twenty eight shooting of Sixty six point six. Now base that means in English as eighties in the ball, like he's hardener Jaanus and he's been the most efficient player in the league. So if looking at those two numbers, there's only been one player in NBA history that had to be that efficient at that. High usage not staff like five years ago. So basically, when eighties at the five, he does a established about shooting threes he's basically scoring at will every single time I think long story short eighty more room to grow I. Think we're seeing that right now like leading a d. plan space given him the ball he's got levels still the go to get into them right now. Yeah I. So the biggest thing off of that, which was great I just wonder if their margin for error is too thin right now obviously the Lakers have been incredible. So let's get that caveat out of the way I think probably favorite if not among the favorites for the title. People like to remind us on the group Chat specifically Chris Because I don't think sharks was. One I remember that yeah. Where we pretty much we troll the Lakers after their first loss of the season and. Venture like the succeed but clearly, they've they've far exceeded those expectations. Great. Please don't ask me. But I do wonder as bad as Rondo has been at times. As much as Bradley is the fifth most important guy on that starting lineup at times I do wonder if the margin for error is a little bit more thin and you are relying on the cruise of the world on the Casey Visa, the world more than you would like to my wrong rob now I mean I'm I'm pretty compelled by this whole situation that sharks laid out like the idea of shifting some of those pieces around and unlocking ad in a different way like makes logical sense to me given his skill set this is. The Guy, who can you know Kevin O'Connor talked in in the restart this week about how? Bam. Out of Bio Converts Defenses Ad in the mid post has a similar effect where if you clear out, you give him space and a straight line drive past almost any big in the league like that's such a powerful thing that there should be a way to orient pieces around that. Make Sense I. Think I get skeptical is in that margin for error and it's in, you know if you look at kind of the core of these lineups. AD and CAL Kuzma, and Alice Caruso or kind of the three man anchor of it and in around that, there's a revolving door of guards. You got some Danny Green minutes you get some dion waiters minutes he gets JR Smith gets in Casey ep you got whoever they cobbled together in that minute in the rotation at those guys scare the hell out of me a little bit and I think you know when you flashback to eighty as a Pelican and where he was some of where they fell apart without drew. Holiday on the floor without kind of more traditional point guards on the floor which just not having competent entry passers not having guys who could get a d. the ball in positions to score, which is it seems like such an easy thing. But the thing I don't trust dion waiters to do but it is a thing. Maybe I do trust Danny Green to do it. You know like some of these more professional veteran level guys like that distinction I think is an important one and probably the difference between bubble seating. Games bubble playoff games, right where you're getting Jr's and the demons at least lower in the pecking order if not out of the rotation on a regular basis entirely, and then you're looking at these minutes where it's you know, Danny Green Casey P. and those guys and cannot work I. Think I. Think there's a chance that it does but I do get a little bit suspect just in the sense that once playoff defenses are really keying in on what this lineup look like and how it works what does that? Mean deep because you know Jaanus has had that scrutiny in terms of a big who handles the ball who's creating for space lineups like we know what that looks like in defense is know what that looks like defensive kind of just been dealing with these Lakers lineups without Lebron floor all year haven't had a lot of trouble with them, but they haven't hammered them either in terms of the the mechanics of how they work. If this starts working, then you invite that level of

The New Tech Driven Home Healthcare with Rachel Munsie
"More. Welcome back to the outcomes. Rockets saw Marquez's here and today I have the privilege of hosting. Rachel Muncie she's on the founding team of tomorrow health, a technology driven home healthcare company changing the way individuals and families manage their care. She leads business development focusing on partnerships and sales strategic marketing initiatives, and new market expansion. She was formerly in healthcare investing, just working to unpack the US healthcare system and understand how we can treat. Treat better incentives through innovation policy and Advocacy Rachel received her bachelor's degree from Georgetown University and attended Mit for her MBA. Before leaving to build tomorrow health, you know the M E, durable medical equipment field definitely is a need for innovation and the work that Rachel and the team at Tamar Health doing is super unique and I'm excited to be covering that with you Rachel today and then. So I wanna give you a warm. Welcome. Welcome thanks for joining us. Thank you so much solve. Really appreciate it, and thanks for having me absolutely. So before we dive into tomorrow health and you know what makes you guys so unique and different in that space I love to hear more about you Rachel and what inspires your work in healthcare. Absolutely. So I am most inspired about solving the problems of healthcare and really the ones that we've all faced. So we spend more. More on healthcare in the US than any other country in the world. But our outcomes are worse and everyone understands what this means on level. I personally once racked up a bill equal to my rent payment during one doctor's appointment because even though I knew I'd have a high deductible plan and even though I knew I'd hardly spent anything against it. I, mean, I work in healthcare I throughout all of practical knowledge because I. I was anxious and nervous, and in a vulnerable situation. I think when you're sitting in a doctor's office or hospital, you rarely compare prices or shop smartly and most people don't even know that you can do that. So most of the time we do things because we're scared or rethink what choice do I really have my health is at stake and I think sometimes the prices in our system take advantage of that. So took me. Me a while to internalize I. Think most people don't realize is that we all pay the price for our broken health care system whether we know it or not. So either through lower take home wages or higher premiums or higher deductibles or even higher taxes and I actually still have those outrageous bills sitting on my kitchen table as reminder to myself that these costs aren't normal and i. think we deserve better and so since digging. Digging into this industry I as an investor, and now as an operator, I'm just constantly floored by the unnecessary complexity that I found in every corner of the go system and no one understands any of it. I. Think People Inside the industry barely do ominous the result of some wacky incentives that run. Ima- and not always a bad intentions. But this is exactly how that knowledge between industries, stakeholders and patience and the broader general public. Public just become so massive, and so when it came to my decision to help found tomorrow hull, it's not an exhaustive solution by one clear trend with pasta impact on all of these stakeholders is the shifting of more care to the home, which is higher quality, and as we know much lower cost of care setting. Yeah. You know you call out a lot of issues that were faced with I think every one of us. You're listening to this podcast today. You're thinking Yup I've been screwed with a big medical bill or and if you haven't which I'm sure you have if the very small chance that you haven't I'm sure somebody in your family are a close friend has dealt with it and I think it's great that you keep that bill on your kitchen counter Rachel, just as a reminder, right of the why behind why we're doing what we do and? Yeah. Care in the home is becoming that much more important with Kobe among us. So reimagining that healthcare is critical as you guys like to coin it. So talk to us about the work at tomorrow health and what exactly you guys are doing to add value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yeah. So at tomorrow health, we are a technology driven home healthcare company, and we are a full stack provider of healthcare, and we're a trusted partner that you can depend on to coordinate and deliver specifically home medical equipment supplies and support all in the. The comfort of your own home, which as you mentioned, all in covid world is extremely important and our big focus envision is on restoring home as the focal point for healthcare delivery and the Genesis of tomorrow health was personal for us, our Co founder and CEO Bj Qatar was working at Oscar. So He's well-versed in the complexity of healthcare and his mom was diagnosed with stage, three cancer, and she needed about a year of intensive home healthcare. Luckily, she's now doing much better, but he was responsible for coordinating. So much of that. That he and his family had to work with over a dozen, different providers would coming out of her home to get what she needed, and after about a month when she was discharged from the hospital, she ended up having to go back three times in her first one pound because of delays or equipment failures relating to her oxygen therapy, and so for patients, and also their families who are usually playing the role of caregivers edition be this hard, and then from a systems perspective whilst does the whole matter and you know by. By dramatically reducing our dependence on hospitals on ers on post acute care sites were able to get high quality care at home and also bend the cost curve in healthcare system. So by working with tomorrow health, we think it makes it easier to shift that care to the home because one of the legs of the stool for homebase healthcare are these hall medical equipment supplies and support
Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday
"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.
Virgin Orbit Determines Cause of Rocket Launch Failure
"Orbit says it's determined what caused the failure of its debut rocket launch. Company experienced a premature shutdown of its main rocket engine on Memorial Day moments after the launch vehicle was released from beneath the wing of a modified Boeing 7 47 off the southern California coast. Investigation determined there was a breach in a high pressure line carrying cryogenic liquid oxygen to the first stage combustion chamber.

How to Read the New Testament Letters as a Whole
"This conversation is about how to actually read the New Testament letters as literary holes care from beginning to end you. You could have broke my brain talking about these letters being written and community. Yeah. Let's good. Yeah. New Appreciation for the lettuce come from Paul and his team team. Yeah, and there's a proscribed involved likely and it's just a new category, but it's really helpful for me to imagine that. And bring that in to what what does that mean. For this to be God's Word it's easier. Just imagine God zapping dude who transcribes something from the holy. Spirit Paul's. Meditating and praying in his study alone. Yeah. And they just here's the word of the Lord. To Talk. Feel more complex. But why can't God work in that way too. He clearly has. Yeah, we're, imagining. The scenarios from the actual data in the letters. You know that he names co senders yet co authors just not standard in first century letters. Yeah. There you go. So there are the product of Paul and his missionary teams in the working out the content over the course of years, and then as they travel around the roads on where we're GONNA go now is a little more practical and how to which is strategies and tools to actually read the letters and stuff. And learning how to identify what's important and things like that. So the first type of approach is just to understand the form of first century letters. I still remember learning how to like be taught how to write a letter. was, given. Template. Put. Certain things. Certain points on the page, the date upper left if in a homemade is your name. Yeah. I remember it felt weird to me. What would you put that information up at the? Left. and You write your name and address remember being like, what is it my address on the envelope? Why do I need? Yeah. Stuff like that. Do you ever do that? I can't even remember the last time. I actually wrote A. Paper letter but you. But if you ever opened up like we're document, yes, that's right and there's templates. Yeah. There's a letter typically, you're right I've done those. There's a business letter. Typically thing is I, don't create a I. Disease Tendencies of the one that's within page. Say there's a template for how you write letter. That's right and there was a template or templates. So here, we'll just summarize it in the most basic form. It's pretty intuitive. It's not rocket science angel letters in the centuries before especially in around the time of the postles you begin, the first words is your name. And then the receiver. So this called the opening address, you identify yourself who writing to and usually use some form of the Greek. Word Chorus, which means grace or favor to say, hello grace to you. So Paul to the church, and so and so Greysteel. There's almost always some little line of giving thanks to the gods for what after the opening address. After the opening, there's follows second main part of the form which is called the thanksgiving. Co you give thanks to the Gods I hear that you're in good health i. give thanks to the guts like then you get the body of the letter and then you get the closing. Letter, which is usually saying, hi to people if you want to travel plans a final prayer for the well-being or health or sometimes appraised the gods and then whatever PS post manner. So opening opening address, thanksgiving prayer just kind of a formality of sorts. And then get into it. Here's one Martin letter getting all the content. and. Then the closing that's right. And what you've got here is just a charts of like all of Paul's all the new letters and how they do this. And in the opening here like you've got First Second Thesselonians, collisions prescription you've got all the letters. And then you've got columns. Yeah, and you fill them out. So you've got Senator Collins Copied and pasted. The opening paragraph, Paul's the sender Yup. He gives himself the title usually. He does it and I the second Thesselonians. The next call movers called it the. Call the description. So the opening like here's what I am. Let me describe why that's right. It's important Dorian. Yeah. Yeah. So in other words when Paul the most basic form would be Paul Tucson. So yeah, he actually not one of his letters that way. He almost always adds a description of himself. Sometimes short, sometimes long he often names the group that produced a letter and then it comes from, they'll named people. So that's the first thing he He rarely puts just his name, usually his name in other people's names, and he usually describes himself with long or short descriptions, and so here's the basic point. Is that if you start comparing all the different beginnings of the New Testament letters, you'll notice when Paul or Peter or John is taking the. Forum and tweaking adapting it to the unique purposes of that letter. That's the basic idea.
One of the Biggest Tekken Tournaments of All Time Never Paid Anyone
"Well over a year ago in March of two, thousand and nineteen, a series of East sports events were held in Khobar Saudi, Arabia including. The True Gaming Tekken invitational this single tournament featured a prize of one hundred, ten thousand dollars USD, which was then the single largest prize pool in taking history for a little context, the two thousand eighteen technical tour finals at a prize pool of Twenty Five K. and Evokes Tekken Prize. Pools are even lower than that and heavy hitters from around the world came to participate. In this thing, I'm talking to likes of Don's knee Chanel. Roma. Are Slash you get the picture from a production standpoint the true gaming tech invitational grave they had an awesome stage set up the stream quality was good. The had commentator and analyst desk great camerawork was clean and in terms of the actual game play competitively, the tournament was great i. mean we saw some of the best players of all time from all around the world give us some unforgettable moments. But after all that confetti was cleaned up after the stage was dismantled in after the community's attention shifted to other events there remained one big problem. Apparently nobody paid. Now this all hit the public's attention in a big way only recently when tech master provident fighting game player and one of the invitees to the gaming tech invitational tweeted about not receiving his prize money from a different event that was organized by the same people. Now, as far as the true gaming tech invitational goes the one with one hundred, Thousand Dollar Prize Pool I talked to tech and master about it, and he said that communication between the players who are owed money in the company who produced the event true gaming hasn't exactly been productive when it comes to when how or infant if they'll get their prize after one month. A number to contact with and every time the new right it's. Like on the process of giving you the process guys. we'd be coming back to you on. Data to and every time like the guy is saying, he did not receive any funding for the first. He's promised to receive it a next month. Don't want everytime delays rate rate until. One year happened instead even. One year under half extra. Here's the thing though true gaming say that they were hired just to produce the event and that the prize money has nothing to do with them at all I managed to get in contact with a guy named a Med almost STAFA. Who is the head of business development at true gaming and he says that the true gaming tech invitatinal took place within a larger event called. Gamers con. He told me that the owner operator of that event, a company called. Tail Events Exhibitions Management Co is responsible for the prize money we correspond over email about it and let me read to you what he told me quote true gaming's role in the event was to operate the competitions and gaming centered activities that have relied on our gaming industry knowledge and know-how. Our team has been contacted by the winners and his forwarded their grievances to k all A and have shared all contact information directly Takeo so that there is a direct. Line of communication and no delay caused by layered communications in the later email he also told me quote we've tried to finalize this matter on numerous occasions. We were even under the impression that it was going to conclude a sooner time and we are completely taken aback by how all have. Let this drag on for so long and quote worth noting here that shortly after I got in contact with gaming, they released a public statement about the matter that was. Very much in line with what they told me privately as far as this K- All events exhibitions management company goes that's where the trail goes a little cold for me I tried calling them with a number on their website and for me it didn't work I tried tweeting out I've emailed them and I tried to use a contact form on their website that is broken apparently so far as of the filming of this video I haven't heard anything back from them. Hubbert. Ladies Tom. Blood I can mean a look at a High Horse Shukran your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please make sure you enter the correct number. It's probably also worth noting here that there were a bunch of other invitational tournaments that took place on the same weekend within this gamers con that we're all organized by true gaming there was rocket league invitational. There was a beep invitation on their Mash Bros invitation and like I said, they were all organized by true gaming who seem to be a company who do everything from eastport centric youtube videos to mainstream game reviews to event production. Now, let's just back up for a quick second. Because there are other entities involved in this issue beyond just the players true gaming and this K- All events and Exhibitions Management Company, and I'm talking about agencies for the Saudi Arabian government see according to Tech and master about six months after the event when it became clear that they weren't going to get their prize money anytime soon, a lot of deep participants in the gaming, Tech. Invitational. Got Together an organized to try to figure out what their next steps they went to a guy who goes by the tag burke came and he contacted to Saudi Arabian government agencies namely, the General Entertainment Authority in Saudi Arabia and more pointedly. The Saudi Arabian Federation for Electric Intellectual Sports see the true gaming invitational had to be sanctioned by these bodies in order to put on their event in the first place and as to who this Berkane guy is. He is a Saudi Arabian eastport seen community leader and individual player manager who has served as a sort of go between between the players, the T os, and the government agencies that oversee East sports in Saudi Arabia and he told me that he's been in contact with those government agencies and they are actively investigating this situation. As we speak I have conducted the federation on behalf of some of the players and they. Did investigate the issue and I believe they have officially contacted all the parties involved in this case on soon, they would return resolve at least from where I'm sitting it's not going to be easy to figure out who's actually on the hook for this money according to Tech Master Burt. CAIN and some other folks I spoke to nobody actually signed any kind of contract or documentation that stipulated how when or I guess technically even if they would get paid out this prize money according to Burke Cain East sports in Saudi Arabia is still very much in a phase where contracts are not the standard sports itself and Saudi is still new. and. It started based on community efforts where almost everything was based on trust. That moved along when he sports stuff to grow on many companies started to throw big huge ovens. Everyone trusts what's being advertised after all the low in Saudi will hold you accountable for what you advertise. Let's say trust is what? being practiced here in Saudi I do believe that should change and perhaps tap. Last year will rise the awareness in the community
Elliot Seguin: Test Pilot
"Did you get an aviation? grew up in a flying family My Dad had assessment semi to for most of my childhood than than I guess when I was pretty young for remember you bought a swift and we had swift grown up in that timeframe when you start getting into get into cars, 'cause you WanNa get into girls He's hot rod out at swift. He put a big motor in it and set some records with and. It was the perfect sendoff to will not playing with Clark's. Their place instead. That is awesome and you've had a great career after a growing up aviation as an engineer being a part of a lot of special programs aviation. How did you progress into a professional aviation career? yes. So The big thing was me and you he he was a pilot but just for So it was a big thing in the family that for me to even think about making money with aviation I didn't really have a good model for that. So establishing that model really came down to two guys. One was my uncle Berle who was a mechanic and the other was a guy named Dave Grohl who restored A spearman's and t six is just down the road from the airport where I learned to ride my bicycle. So between those two guys, they sort of established that model for how you could. Use Airplanes to to make your money rather than just spend it, and that's that the sugar trajectory that led to the rest of it. That is awesome. So l. it you have a really cool company name was Sabi flight test was Sabi erasing how did that name come about? Yeah. So we're enough we were eating Sushi right No, but So we we did come up with the name eating Sushi. We were looking for a name for the for the race plane are we had bought our cast it project that happened to be green and I was looking for a name that would tie the the color of the airplane to the branding and would also fit well on the side of the airplane. Right there's like that aspect ratio between the. Pilot's seat back bulkhead in the front of the Horizontal Stab, you WanNa kind of that space efficiently as possible So between that and you know having a lot of. It was going to be fun for fun to say this is a really engineering response. Sorry about that. But that was where we came up with with Sabi unfortunately now, we're stuck with it so. So tell us a little bit that company. Yeah. So I think you Kinda Kinda. Talk about Michael Brawl in in Dave right back in. Michigan. Right and so you sort of like I'm GonNa make money with aviation like what does that look like you're trying to figure out like how to set those sites right sort of doing bookwork get engineering degree like how's it all add up to what end up in in Muhabi at scaled right so quickly that that Idea becoming an engineer on aviation engineer on airplanes to like like, can you fly like what it's like test like that's like a really exponential curve right? We go from like WHOA can I make money with airplane to like oh? Wow. Like Mike Millville is like a high school trained like NPR slash astronaut that is the coolest thing ever, and how do you like do that right? Well. It turns out like other people coming up with that same thing at the same time. So there was like a handful of us at scale and really at the Mojave airport that we're all sort of competing for like you know who was GonNa the the visualization was that. Somebody was going to have to sit in the right seat of those spaceship flights somewhere between like yeah. Melville was going to get the first flight you know Pete or whatever but it was gonna be some flights before customers were in the right seat in the back seat and that Steve was gonna you know some get bored and they were going to put someone there and you would have a chance to be an astronaut supersonic all reversible controls rocket engine like everything flying the world's greatest Hondo. So, creating a path to make yourself competitive for that in this environment like mojave work for spaceship one before they should wonder but voyageur Mohammed was desolate. There was nobody really after spatial won the place got like flooded with talent. So. There's all these guys that are buying for my spot. I want that spot, right so I go to work as hard as I can all day but the other day there's slow there's time left the end of the day. What am I gonNA, do with it, and that's where we saw became came down to right. So whether it was with air racing or helping a friend developed with a platform whatever I can subsidize my flight test activities with a full time job, and then ideally I don't have to. Be With the Siren headed like design the airplane builder my wife working you know basically two fulltime jobs to get things done as you move to where you're doing that more and more professionally like just not happening to build the airplane is such a huge benefit independent of whether or not I get paid or not right. So if you can use that full-time job to subsidize the back end, that's where it was Sabi allows me to build that resume that hopefully makes me competitive remember you know the the sort of the end of the the civilian test pilot dream scale was when they started bringing in More and more military trust train test pilots, right military test pilot right and it's two million bucks to make him a fighter pilot. Then you drop another million to two million to make him a test pilot that's what you're competing with as a civilian, right so high, you get that experience. So I have to like give away my time at least I didn't have to build all those airplanes to get the experience and that's what the the basis of Assab years. Right. I have to make a silly youtube video or do some engineering build an airplane whatever it is to the flight test experienced resume because that's First of all sort of unforgettable experience in second ball. That's what we're passionate about. So so that's You're

"Booker. He threw down this poster slam on Pastel Siaka. Means Mrs tee up for you man, how many meaningful buckets do you think? The Suns we'll have in in these playing games. So you're saying there's a chance Booker GonNa, ball out I think book is going to be tremendous, but the size meaningful. Is, but this is a perfect situation for booker because the says don't have any fans anyway. All right. Miss. Traveling. How about Stephen Adams grabbing this loose ball, somehow getting to his feet and then finishes with the Euro Step Layup. Blaming this, no call or Carmelo's lack of interest in the play for this result come on. Now. That was that was nice. Euro. Stephen Adams. Got That in his game. He's done that multiple occasions that I've seen mellow wasn't ready to see that coming come home Elo. Can You? Can you be on the ground, stand up starts. She may have that in his game, but he doesn't have dribbling from his backside in his game. That was pretty damn impressive if you asked me. Make hang timed. In the Grizzlies final scrimmage yesterday. Man John. Moran was going hard. He threw down to impressive alley. oops. Tall does just feel like he's got something to prove in these upcoming Games. Absolutely all this chitter chatter about Zaire. Maybe getting rookie of the year. He's putting that to rest. This is the rookie of the year and you could argue he could have been an all stars this year. Zion's not winning rookie of the John have to worry about that. But I'll I'll find the light. The Grizzlies were so focused on this scrimmage, and it's not even real game this scrimmage as revenge. Rongerik with all congratulations. All right. Let's move onto another team that's fighting for the eight spot in the West. That's the court lind trailblazers. As. You know we will be catching up on on their previous jury to the bubble with another installment of our previously on. This. Hard. Like waking up every morning, not knowing what to expect. I know what to do want to give up hope Anthony with all the things. The rockets once said, they wanted him to be active All. Put James on them. I mean, that's all right. I, think this is everything they needed someone that can give them twenty point games. That often. End, up. It was plugged up. It needed a especially. Characterize where you guys stand now. Worsen Conference finals, we had high expectations, I feel like we in the middle of test, there's learn. They're going to have to move the three point line. So yeah, Russ Russ is seen enough of these. Damian Lillard. that. This is his best season. Sixty, one points in the overtime victory. He's delivered in a heck of a performance something that'll be remembered forever, and that's the thing about it. Doesn't care about the standings. He chases greatness. No matter. The circumstance he doesn't quit never thinks he's out of a game. Never thinks he's out of the season. If this team is healthy, they are scary team. Eight see I. Think we just in the middle of test of? thinking, it was going to be one way and it's been a total opposite, and you know we just continue on their fighter. ESPN's BP. I only gives the blazers twenty, six percent chance of making it to the play tournament. They finally got a healthy Yousef Merkich Zach, Collins. Looked like a dangerous team in the West. Mean do you expect the Blazers to overcome their playoff odds and make it? Yeah I. Mean The great thing. They don't have to be the eighth seed. They just have to trigger the plane and I think they'll absolutely do that. Here's the thing would be PR gives you those numbers that's not with use of Norwich in the lineup. That's not with that Collins in the lineup. That's not Carmelo Anthony rested slimmer and with the full training camp pretty much to go through the whole playbook, it doesn't factor those things and it's just battering of what they. They did this season. So we're GONNA see a completely different blazers team and to me when it comes to these moments where you need every possession matter, every possession account young teams tend to blow it. Veteran teams tend to get it right. This isn't a veteran team competing at Sacramento. New. Orleans and Memphis. All very young teams and finally Damian Lillard is the best player out of any of those fourteen I'm going with the blazers facing the Lakers in the first round. I, don't think. So I mean, this is the thing you're. You're in a situation unlike any other situation before year the Blazers, they have their their injuries taken care of, but they're not playing at home and big about this. We're looking like kind of like a pickup game set into where I think the advantage is going to be to the Memphis Grizzlies, young legs. Legs. They have nothing to lose. You gotTA understand. There's going to be so much more pressure on the blazers to try to get a the memphis trying to lose the eighth because they've already over exceeded expectations. No matter what happens. But I I think the mountain is too hard for them to climb. Three goes behind. MEMPHIS. I, think there's no chance they make it. So, I would pay attention very closely on Friday watch the jump from three to four eastern, and then at four eastern find that Blazers Grizzlies game, which is one of the most games of the first week in the NBA restart. If the Blazers win that game especially with Dame Lillard a little hobbled by a foot issue, I think it catapults step. If they lose, it catapults the grizzlies that to me is the thing that I'm looking for this week again. Friday. Afternoon four o'clock strange time for big game, but it is a big game. Now we move onto some news from this morning. The Mavericks issued a seven, hundred, sixty, nine words statement. To, to rebuke a sports illustrated story that reported a sexual assault allegation against Mavericks Director, of Player, Personnel Tony Ron Zony labeling the story as a once as one sided and.

I knows that this case was brought to the mavs with the request for money and merchandise. However, the mavs conducted a thorough investigation into peters contained in the original email including allegations of sexual assault. The formal investigation is currently closed, pending, further, credible evidence emerging and zero tolerance policy remains. Now a report in two thousand, Eighteen by sports illustrated that detailed a culture of harassment and abuse within the Mavericks Business Operations led to the hiring of their. CEO Cynthia Marshall and owner Mark Cuban's donation of ten million dollars to women's organisations were also prompted the NBA to issue new requirements that include reporting instances of significant allegations of misconduct to the League. We will continue to monitor this story..

"Nineteen zero have returned back. Confirmed positive tests does this mean the NBA needs to bring back the bubble for next season? We'll discuss that later but I. James Harden put on a show when the rockets final scrimmage before the resumption of the regular season hardened seven threes in the first half and finished with thirty five points, eight rebounds, and six assists in just twenty nine minutes of action last night, but it wasn't all roses for the rockets. Erik, Gordon landed awkwardly on his left foot with over a minute. Remaining in the second quarter. Might Dantonio that x rays were negative on that injured left. Ankle. Roads reports. Gordon could miss a one to two weeks. Paul. Do you consider the rockets to be the biggest threat to the Lakers or clippers coming out of the West? Yeah. Absolutely. I think they're the only threat for one. There's not a back court that's going to be better than James. Hardie Russell Westbrook, you're talking about two former MVP's You can make the argument that James could be MVP this year I. Mean they got a top five player, a top ten player, those other ingredients you need to be in the finals. If you look every year if features one of those two players, so they're the only threats are west to the clippers and Lakers. Yeah I mean, if we want to talk about other threats to the clippers and Lakers I, think realistically there aren't. But if there is one to me, it's the Denver. Nuggets. Team would the requisite amount of depth with with an MVP candidate and as disciplined on both sides of the ball? I think the problem with Houston to me is they got a lot of talent, but it just kind of really pick up game talent run up and down the Fort Talent, and when it comes the playoffs where teams are game planning where they're sitting around trying to exploit your weaknesses and take away from your strength, I just don't think the rockets have the personnel or the depth to battle that comes beating team like the clippers or the Lakers I'd like to just point out you refer to to NBA, MVP. As pickup game talent there Mr Alhassan. will say like. The style of play, not the not the talk, Gotcha Gotcha tweaking. But I think the rockets. The big thing is, can they hold up? We already have an injury. They don't have the depth that some of the other teams do you mentioned the nuggets although they were down to eight guys when the bubble started? And I definitely think those guys have the swagger because to beat the clippers or Lakers, you've got to have swagger, they're going to have it. They don't have to play any of the Games in Los Angeles. So the homecourt advantage would be neutralized a little, but I think it would be amazing if the rockets could somehow get up to the number four seed. Through these seating games and set up that second round possible matchup against the Lakers I think that'll be great theater. We see Russ and hard, and although supporting guys stay healthy to make it happen I. Just don't know a mean if that's if they got enough in the tank, do that we're going to see. Brian. Tell you right now, if they see the thunder in the first round, they won't even get to the second round. It won't be a conversation about Lakers clippers on. The first round. No. No Way. No. I'm calling my shot right now. They'RE GOING TO UPSET DENVER, they're gonNA. See the clippers in the second round. You see it watch. What well, I wanna say I think the thunder are a very dangerous team. I don't know if I'd pick them against the rockets but watch the thunder over these next eight games. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. See how they're continuity might show up. Hey, coming up. Should we expect the blazers to overcome the steep odds and earned the final playoff spot west stick around to find out but I? Only one day. That's right. One day away from the resumption of the NBA's regular season, we've been counting down the days by running back the top plays of this season.

"Don't make the playoffs of getting in the play offs that are like seven straight years and and we want to be in the play-offs every year. It's not in my DNA to rebuild and and but at the same time even when you're not rebuilding there's only so many years that if you're a real listed you could really win a championship and I have Russell and James the next three years and you know we're going to do whatever we can do to be one of those top four five teams. I mean let's be honest. It takes some luck to win a championship. But all you could do is set yourself up to be one of the better teams the Great Golden State. Only one three out of five as great as they were. Because you still have to have a little lot to win a championship so our goal is for the next few years to set ourselves up to be one of those top four five teams that have the ability to win at all. And that's all we can do in today's NBA. It seems like there's super team and super team and super team and you manage to put together a couple of guys who are two of the most dynamic players in the League for certain in harden and Westbrook. What was your thought process of pairing them together? And what consideration did you give that? It was actually possible number one. I mean I. We were really special. The last two years with Chris Paul and James Harden and I listen to my basketball people and and you know it's nice to be able to be the guy that signs off on it at the end but thank God. I don't have to make the decision of ring recommendation. We'll always be really good basketball scene. But but you know I understood. I've I've always been amazed at at Russell Westbrook and that he was gonna make us play faster and we thought under Mike Stahl and that that what was best for us You know what Chris. Paul has done for Oklahoma. This year's unbelievable and you know they've got a forty twenty four record the same as us so you know. I think it was just one of those things that it might have made us. Our people felt like a tad better but at the same time. Chris is doing great. But Russell's been great for us and we're happy to have him From my perspective and really being immersed in the NBA As much as maybe some other sports that I cover a bit more often. I'm so impressed with Adam. Silver and kind of his foresight in the way that he operates as a leader. How would you describe what what he does the Commissioner of the NBA well? I think Adam doesn't unbelievable job in. It's been great getting to know Adam. And Adam is is a commissioner for all the owners and all players. And he's going to always do what's in our best interest. But what? I like is an entrepreneur. Is that Adam is always looking out in. How do I make the NBA? So much better five years from now ten years from now and the team that he's put together up there with rick and mark and everybody up there. It's we want want to be the leader. We want to be the best and not sit on our hands and and not do something that always makes the NBA special health. Talk to the other owners. And which one impresses you the most every one of them impresses me if you WanNa know the truth because they found the the way to to to be one of thirty owners in the NBA.

"It's not in my DNA to rebuild and and but at the same time even when you're not rebuilding there's only so many years that if you're a real listed you could really win a championship and I have Russell and James the next three years and you know we're going to do whatever we can do to be one of those top four five teams. I mean let's be honest. It takes some luck to win a championship. But all you could do is set yourself up to be one of the better teams the Great Golden State. Only one three out of five as great as they were. Because you still have to have a little lot to win a championship so our goal is for the next few years to set ourselves up to be one of those top four five teams that have the ability to win at all. And that's all we can do in today's NBA. It seems like there's super team and super team and super team and you manage to put together a couple of guys who are two of the most dynamic players in the League for certain in harden and Westbrook.

We were really special the last two years with Chris Paul and James Harden and I listen to my basketball people. And you know it's nice to be able to be the guy that signs off on it at the end but thank God. I don't have to make the decision of ring recommendation. We'll always be really good basketball scene.

"So Kelly can you quickly breakdown for us. What are the benefits and risks of putting a really small team on the court? You get more shots up. You can play faster. You can kind of use your speed to force turnovers and get an advantage on their opponent. That is the benefit of the small ball line of Transit Point Snyder disadvantages others you give up a Lotta height rebounding. You might sacrifice paint protection and protection and there's a chance that you get it on on the glass second chance opportunities and things like that changed last shot. Blockers look for the Lakers. The CIA layup every night. Not One shot on the floor for these the rockets and you know this is something that's been tried in the NBA. Before but how? Extreme is the version that the rockets are playing right now. Is there a word for anything? More than superstring. I mean what the rockets are doing right. Now has been nervous before they have clearly made the statement. We can defend on the perimeter. But you can get us in the interior but it won't matter because three threes outskirts too. That's what they're betting the guy behind. This big gamble is the rockets coach. Mike Deane Tony. First of all can use a little bit about him like what's his personality. Oh Mike is A. He's probably the best coach to talk to. Because he's someone who's very blunk he doesn't sugarcoat anything you know. It's funny because I read somewhere. We dropped in pace. We didn't draw bay faster last year the year before. Five was the whole. Don't leak was faster. So yeah we dropped down but we played faster and we even when he empowers is players. He empowers people around him and he's a pleasure to be around. It makes covering the team a lot more interesting and fun. You know because everyone has been around the coach grumbles and his one liners and stuff like that but Mike is Mike is Special and Dantonio has been championing. This small ball style of play for quite a while. Now.

"Now clashes between Israel's military and militant groups in Gaza has happened again. This week can seem depressingly familiar one side or the other triggers fighting in which the militants fire rockets and Israel responds with airstrikes buildings destroyed and people generally dying after a few days. A ceasefire has brokered. Could Israelis returned to their relatively comfortable lives and Gazans returned to their much more difficult daily existence. So what will it take to break that. Grim rim cycle and provide some genuine positive change for the people of Gaza living under Israeli blockade Middle East correspondent. Eric Torture asks that very question Christian there are applications on smartphones to navigate your drive in an unfamiliar neighborhood to share photos to find out what time you'll bus slaves in Israel Israel. There's an APP that tells you. When rockets have been launched and in which areas people need to take cover? I have this APP on my phone. So I know when militant groups in Gaza Sir Lebanon or Syria alone rockets into Israel. It makes an urgent bringing sound like a sped up school bell early. On Tuesday morning it began digging being continuously the urgent bells kept chiming with H new launch music. My young son said pointing at the phone but it wasn't something to be enjoyed. H new alert Minton new batch of rockets fired towards a different part of Israel. There's a language to where the rockets directed if the alerts for small communities on the Gaza border. There's no big news story. Militant factions often launch small rockets towards the sparsely populated border area. And I rarely to kill anybody but on Tuesday these alerts where facilities in central Israel where four million people live in tel.. Aviv's awful morning. Traffic Commute Mute has jumped out of their cars and duck down on the roads as rocket. Sirens blared south of the city Israel's intercept missiles with bringing down rockets fired from Gaza her in the language of rocket launches. This was a very serious message. The militants would telling Israel you have started a nasty fight. That's because at four in the morning and Israeli airstrike destroyed an apartment in Gaza City. Where Baha Abu Al Attar and his wife was sleeping? Atta was a commander commander. In the military wing of the iranian-backed militant group Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Israel said it killed him because he'd been a serial troublemaker. Ordering rocket could launches sniper attacks and even strike with an antitank missile in breach of an unofficial ceasefire between militant groups in Israel Abu. Al Atta reportedly ordered a rocket attack on the city of stood during Israel's recent election campaign when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was addressing a rally. The alarm forced I him off the stage. An embarrassment for a leader who likes to be thought of as Mr Security Nevertheless ATAS killing by Israel was an unusual move. You've Israel abandoned a former policy of what it called targeted killings essentially the assassination of militant ladies in two thousand twelve after one particular L. A.. Hit led to a costly protracted conflict in Gaza. The assassinations was seen to increase violence. Not Reduce IT shortly after the strike back in Gaza a missile blew up a home in the embassy district of Syria's capital Damascus. Killing two men the target was reportedly another Palestinian Islamic Jihad official who may have survived the strike. Israel has not commented on that attack Palestinian Islamic Jihad the second largest militant group in Gaza Responded by firing hundreds of rockets with two days. Thanks largely to Israel's iron dome intercept missiles they were injuries but no deaths. Israel responded with airstrikes saying it was targeting men firing rockets as well as Palestinian Islamic Jihad sites and leaders but among the thirty four all people killed inside Gaza where father and his two sons who were riding a motorbike. Seven family members of Islamic Jihad leader died when his apartment was hit. Israel's government and military said there I am was to deter Islamic Jihad from further attacks while not during the much more powerful militant group which governs Gaza a Hamas into the fighting in previous rounds of violence Hamas has been able to inflict much more damage with Superior Manpower Coordination and and linked the experience of fighting Israel and the tactic worked Hamas stayed on the sidelines and the inevitable. Ceasefire was reached. Sooner than most people expected Israel says it clearly won this round but teaching a militant group lesson cost thirty four lives and inflicted more pine and feel on Gazans and Israelis civilians on both sides of the border a sick of it although some Israelis were expressing approval because there were no deaths on this side but people know depressingly pressingly that this will happen again fairly soon. That's because no political later wants to take the difficult but necessary steps to end the miserable situation in in Gaza under blockade for twelve years. It is a small but densely populated place with a paralyzed economy a health system on the brink of collapse and a growing population of trapped desperate forgotten people ending the economic and military blockade that causes so much misery in Gaza would require Israel to recognize and deal openly with Hamas. The group violently seized power from the Palestinian Authority in two thousand and seven. After winning an election the year before it has survived three woes and held onto power. Despite the worsening suffering of Gazans the Palestinian authorities recognized the unpalatable palatable necessity of dealing with House and recently announced a plan for new elections despite their history both sides of the internal Palestinian conflict a now seeking a political solution. You don't really hear Israeli politicians talking like that the two main contenders for government instead compete for who can promise the harshest military incursion. There's no talk about ending the blockade securing a real future for Gazans. It's assumed this cannot occur while Hamas rules tells the group still formally coals for Israel's destruction even while its latest admit that's an unacceptable and unachievable goal but the reason Israel Israel and Gaza militants keep fighting because nothing changes armed groups still hold sway over a fearful population which has never had redress for the historical injustices that put them in a tiny enclave surrounded by walls fences cameras and guns since they voted for Hamas they've been rewarded with more than a decade of woes isolation and stagnation. Everyone in Gaza wants and needs change real change that comes from political echo. Courage or Gaza in Kids Will Cape Bank collateral damage and Israelis will keep waking up to the unholy music of rocket. Alerts on their funds are torture. They're reporting from Jerusalem..
"rockets" Discussed on First Take
"Hey we'll take on this Friday eve Max Kellerman Mulcair Monroe's how's everybody failing to the morning. All all right around sick but I'm okay. That's what happens when you're on twenty four hours a day or when you stuck in within one minute you're ninety degree weather like we were in Arizona and and another day when you go from ninety degrees to thirty degrees. That'll do it when I'm here. Let's okay all the dog it's been about L. A.. Houston reminding folks they are out here. James Harden in the rockets defending core forty seven points six rebounds seven assists seventeen of his forty seven points. This came in the fourth quarter. Max Out scoring. The clippers team tend to to in clutch time. How impress where you but those rockets I I was impressed? The rockets James Harden is the MVP the League so far. He is doing his thing as he does. Every season. I thought Steph curry was GONNA win. MVP this year. But I knew harden would be right there. Maybe he would get a sympathy vote since they seem to give it to someone else every year and he's just as good as anyone in the regular season in fact I think he probably wins it this year Steven A.. Because if he averages close to forty points a game and the rockets are winning. What are they gonNA do? Click Capella had a big game. All those things is but Stephen a get back to me in the playoffs. I hate to be that guy but here I am the the fact of the matter. Is We already know. James Hart is one of the greatest regular season performers in the history of any sport. It right like I think about Clayton Kershaw or even Peyton manning who wound up with a couple of super bowls but these guys were in the regular season as an only God that may be the best guy whoever did it Clayton Kershaw in his prime might be the greatest. He's on a shortlist of the best. Starting pitchers who ever lived in the postseason one good just was seemed guy like twice as half as good as you normally. It's less than that Peyton manning to regular season. Nfl We all know Peyton. Manning is the best football player who ever lived because of the importance of the quarterback the way he played regular season Peyton. Manning was way better than Tom. Tom Brady right but under pressure in the playoffs. peyton manning was not the same guy. I take no pleasure in saying this but I'm not afraid to tell you how it is. Either James Harden Steven A. is putting up juiced baseball era numbers like what what how many points with the assists the rebounds and he's doing it efficiently and his defense is getting better Stephen. Ai Tip my captain. He was the best S. player on the floor last night and that floor included Leonard who clutch shot late in the game to give him lead the whole thing at harden took over. I tip Mike Captain. How ever these are not the playoffs? And he like my opinion of him in that way is not going to change Sean till I see him do it in the playoffs. First of all let me educate you about a couple of things number one. He has not been that efficient is not as efficient as he's going to be right now. He's shooting forty percent from the field thirty one percent from three point range. Even though he's averaging thirty eight points per game he shoot nearly twenty five times a game. Twenty four four point five to be exact. That's not exactly efficient so he's not my is at this particular moment in time and this does far. He's not my now to me. He is the two time league. MVP should have won it last year. Just like you wanted the year before. I didn't think the Greek freak deserved it over him last year. And I don't believe that what you see from James Harden in in terms of collectively what. He's done numbers wise the season. It's what's going to. It's going to continue. I think you'll see more of a version of what you saw. Last night I could see him dropping forty plus on forty six percent shooting from the field. That's what I see. He's not there yet. He's actually going to get better as the season progresses. But I'll tell you what impresses has me about the Houston Rockets. and Der Maureen are having an extensive conversation about this last night. When I look at the Houston Rockets? I'm looking at a guy like a Russell. Westbrook Brooke who obviously went into the game shooting. Twenty one percent from three point range hit two of seven last night which is at around twenty eight percent. You would like to get him to shoot better from quite rate talking to my Dad Tony before the game. I didn't Tony. I don't care about that. Let Ross Be Russ because I might want other people to shoot the three or whatever but I'm not gonNa take away his mid range game or his ability to get to the basket and be unstoppable in that regard he's Russell freaking Westwood. Let him be who he is and I agree with that but as I watched the Houston Rockets. Here's what impresses me. I look at the Los Angeles Clippers. How deep they are? I'm looking at a guy like Paul George. Wallace spoke to before last night's Game Salvi in wishing he had come back last night as opposed coming back tonight against New Orleans. That's what he wanted to do. I'm looking get how deep they are and I'm saying what's the kind of thing that can stop them because clearly from a collection standpoint the clippers the best team in basketball. I don't care what anybody says. They're too the deep at every single position. Once Georgia's their whitaker wildland with those two and Lou Williams on the floor Lord have mercy is would be something special what what can derail them an explosive offensive performance. That simply cannot be stopped that is James hearted but as I was explaining a darrow. Maury we it's how you do it with Houston to me that matters if James Harden is dancing going one on one Max. He's not going to get it done. That's not going to get it done in a best in a best of seven game series against the likes of a clippers or even a laker squad. Not If you're catching and shooting and you're moving without the ball just a little bit more and other people are involved even though you're still getting your shot because catching and shooting as opposed to hold in the basketball good ball for about ten seconds dancing on somebody. Then that's a different ballgame so it's not about it's not about what Houston does overall. It's about how if they go about getting it done. The kind of game that they play has to change a little bit down. Maurienne are talking last night. And one of the things he said to me is to my den. Tony's credit he actually would like to see what I just suggested a little bit more. Not that you want to get in the way of James Harden you don't WanNa get in the way of what he's doing how he's doing it to some degree agree but other degrees you gotta score quicker. Meaning they just get it and go you either shoot or go. As opposed to hold the ball allowing a defense to get that sets right and settled going up against you and I think if they do that Max then what you're saying and what you have said about James Harden will change. Because because I think you'll see Houston be more effective and they could end up being the threat in the western conference to both La Teams. They have the potential to not anybody everybody off with how explosive offense although last night notwithstanding their defense hasn't been great as usual this season so far but I believe it or not they actually getting better defensively League which tells you how bad early on no doubt doubt the look what you're saying is right. I think that's that's actually also conventional basketball wisdom like the rockets play play extremely efficiently and yet in that efficiency only taking shots and hardened sobol dominant in the moment of truth. There's kind of like a team thing that happens when the ball's not moving when guy hardens not moving the ball should catch the kind of things that you just outlined a little bit more probably probably would help them and maybe even helps James Harden in the clutch but Stephen we see him able to score in isolation at will so in the regular season but with the chips on the line in the playoffs. He hasn't and that's my issue. By the way I want to address something else. Russell Westbrook after the game. Step out Patrick. Beverley that he tricks he tricks. y'All he says he's playing defense guard. Nobody is just running around doing nothing all that commotion to Get.

"Right. And is this team short of the the warriors imploding, which I mean, I guess they will eventually, but do the rockets actually have championship roster. I guess is the question. I don't look at the Houston roster and think that it's a championship roster. When you're looking at you know, what the Stoorikhel champions have been, you know, with with typically three great players. But when you look at what Milwaukee has done with you on this year and a bunch of other really good complementary players. You know, you could see a path that Houston. You could win a championship. But their path to get to that points going to have to change in order for that to likely become a reality. And that's just you know, the people that they'll have to play through. So and this is where you know, sometimes we we'll talk about championships and wanted to win championships. That's you know, that's certainly important. And it's something that we understand that fans. Are you know, it's why we grew up fans right to win that championship. But there is a reality. You know, in inside a lot of these teams that you know, championship isn't the definition of success. And you just gotta plug away at being the best version of the team, you can be and it's not sexy. It's not like exciting. But it's reality. And I think that that's something that we don't we don't want to knowledge with. We don't want acknowledge that. It's okay, we're we're in such a rings with multiple Z's at the end of rings culture that it's now become somehow unacceptable to talk about a team as having anything. Less than championship aspirations. And yet I feel like for for certain markets and certain teams, it's hey, look, we're, you know, we're gonna just keep plugging away. And if if we're fortunate if to break through great, if not there's the entertainment product part of this, which is put out a great team a team that's easy to for fans to get behind that they're excited about that are fun to watch. And you know, they'll they'll get as far as they get and nobody can talk about that outwardly. You always have to say championship. You always say, oh, of course, we were before. But I feel like the reality is as a business and entertainment matter, that's the undiscussed part of the NBA that for a lot of teams in a lot of markets and certain ownership groups and everything else they get the value system isn't the same across the board. And also, they look you, and I both know there's a handful of teams that really have a chance every year. And if you don't have one of the top three or four five players in the league, you're probably not even in that conversation which rules out a lot of teams and it hard to. To take a step back and say, okay. What what are we in as a period of time for the franchise? You know, the Houston Rockets they've this looks like it's one two three four five six I can't count seven consecutive playoff appearances to conference finals appearances during that stretch a couple a number of semi final, you know, Western Conference appearances. Like, this is a great run of basketball as a Houston Rockets fan, and sometimes it's hard to appreciate just how hard that is to be that competitive in that good for for a long duration, even though you may not get over the hump and get to the finals or when a championship. But the last seven years has been a great time for rockets fans, though, they're you know, they're going to have another shot at it next year..

"But if we if you if we do not look at the scoreboard during this series. We would think it's overall almost. The rockets are playing better basketball, the rockets of should be feeling better about themselves. And by the way, Draymond green said something very precious, by the way about the physicality nature of this series, and how they are being physical and how they haven't had a proper response yet. And they're going to have to wake up he even said we're getting slapped around. Okay. And so that's what's happening here. Having the set all that they almost pulled it out last night anyway because they still have this talent. But the answer this question is yes to walk. It should be feeling better about themselves fright. Could you throw your hat in the ring here on the idea that the warriors are still figuring themselves out? Well, I would say this about them. If you look at what's going on in the postseason, they've been vulnerable at home already lost two games, and that was to the clippers. So I think what they're trying to figure out is a way to stop James harden because Bob's point you go to game six last year. They did not have Chris Paul. They did not have Chris all in game seven now that everybody's healthy. And I also think that the rockets are winning a bit of the psychological battle after the game last night. Steve Kerr said it's middle linebackers against volleyball players basic trying to buy we're getting pushed around, and I think that audit and all the complaining that the rockets did might be helping them out at this point. This is not being cheeky in any way, the debt lineup knows each other. They played with each other for years now under stays that lineup lot. It's team. This rockets team is equipped to match that and they have something in PJ Tucker. That's a nightmare for this lineup right now. And he is killing them with those rebounds, especially that death lineup is fantastic. But they do have weaknesses there smallish, and they have to play physical. It's the danger of trying to turn it on. Come the playoffs. When you haven't realized what it takes to play at this level when the rest of the league has been slowly catching. Here's an. Regal inside the death lineup here. Bob, Ryan, it's not as deadly as it used to be true or false. That's not the issue. Maybe is a little bit less. But the fact is when you go to the Hampton five you have no bench. Now, they don't have a bench. At least the rockets are getting something out of somebody named Austin rivers, which we weren't counting on. That's another factor. Also in this matchup. They get killed on the glass when they go to to to death lineup or the handed five or whatever you wanna call it. So to sum it all does this year feel different to you is to last year if you'll difference you this year, it's an extension. We know how close to where last year it makes perfect sense that they're in a good position this year only Bob gets to answer that question because I stepped on his time before that is derived, we move books thirteen six one zero one the wave of inevitability that is Milwaukee and the puddle of unreliability that is Boston, which I believe is something Israel's tears wants imparted on this show as segment that takes about thirty seconds. But if you really time that usually about twenty or twenty five. Kyri slough. Let's hear from you know, for me the twenty two shots. I should've shot thirty really great shooter. So. Can you start by dressing?.

"Win away from the NBA finals. Behind the back. Punches at a love ten on the rear. The Houston Rockets pushed the Golden State Warriors, the breakable limitation in the Western Conference finals. Ultimately losing game seven with Chris. Paul sidelined by hamstring injury. Most teams get us last year actually do in the title. Obviously we didn't get it done. We're very confident going in. We've got a great shot. It's going to take a lot of work, but we're excited about the season nevertheless, rockets GM Daryl Morey had his vision validated. Paul league MPP, James harden, brilliant young. MAURICE constructed a roster to chase down the defending champs, and now Houston returns to camp with a reshape lineup and the clock ticking on its title window. When you make all you, here's he had a great season guys. Nations here that awesome rhythm targeting this time. She still run it back with Carmelo Anthony promising to be an unselfish under study the pollen. James hearted. These rockets are built for speed and three pointers, and maybe two built to beat the two-time defending NBA champions. Welcome back to the jump critic, ELO crowded up here. We got adult daily, double going on the rockets owner, big, big, welcome. For more general manager, my fellow northwestern guys all. Yeah, I wanna know how excited you are about this year's team. I'm so excited and and we were a great team last year when in sixty five games in a in a hamstring away from from getting to the ship. And that's just a fact. Okay, it is. And and Chris, it kind of been our stopper all year whenever somebody got on a run, but I'm gonna tell you. We really improved ourselves this year and we've made a lot of moves. We have six new players. But if you just look at at who we lost and who we gained, we're really good. So you guys may some significant addition to the team ELO James innings, and Michael Carter Williams. Are you done tweaking Rosser I I know. Question. I mean, we we do try to peek in April, so there's always a chance, but we're feeling great about coach. Dan Tony was was on this. I, I mean, he was saying real early. We're better than last year and I'm there now having seen our training camp in our players with mellow Carter Williams, James Ennis, you know, Brandon night's gonna help us down the road. So yeah, we're excited about where you know, that's not the common perception that we're talking about this in the commercial break the ideas. Oh, well, Trevor REEs gun with Luke, my mood day gun and everyone's a, you're older and mellow coming in the perception, isn't that the you're not concerned about that you told me we like beating perceptions. We've we've done it. I think I saw just talking about Vegas before we got on here that we've beaten the, we've, we've been a of the wing. We pan of the twelve years we've we've been here. So remember that's what other people here. One other show and it just becomes a line. Okay, but, but we're the ones that the practices we're the ones watching. We watched the s. lettuces compared to to last year out of these new guys and they're just really at add. Remember Chris, Paul and James make people look better from the teams that these guys were on life here. They're not the same player, and that's what I think people are gonna see this year, right near and tracing talking before, like what would happen if he was in coached, Antonis offense and he'd, he'd probably. Fifth, straight of the, he's it's, yeah, the coaching staff and the players are are all in harmony to to help us one games. You said that they players different when they're here? Carmelo, Anthony is banking on the fact that he is going to be different here certainly from his year last year, what convinced you guys that? This was a good idea to bring him in that it's gonna work. I mean, Carmelo so far just to show you where he's at and his skill set and what coach is already getting out of them. He played the five last night screen roll and finish the basket. I'm not sure he's ever done that. Maybe it Syracuse, he was able to run the floor and get a pass from James harden, and like I think five seconds on the clock had a three Carmelo is an extremely talented player..

"Go to the rim get a couple of easy buckets in and reset yourself but the issue for the rockets is that this is always been how they reset themselves this year you hit open threes and it wasn't for a lack of looks they were all right there the issue to me is when you watch what happened to houston last night and there are certainly a lot of rockets fans out there that are sitting there in there going over that game and they're saying oh man if paul was just playing they would've won they either would've won game six so that would have won game seven i go the opposite direction because i always thought that golden state was gonna win the series even after they lost engaged five there but if you're a rockets fan forget the system for a second do you feel like they just blew their best chance that they're gonna have because with where they're at salary cap wise you gotta figure out what you're doing with clint cappella you know i i saw stephen as saying that they should go after lebron this summer what do you do to assure your your yourself a better chance than what you had last night and i don't know if there is one especially when you look back at chris paul's career the last couple of years he's always out for a chunk of games and this came at really bad time for him but he's getting older and he gets hurt and this is what happens and i think the getting older part is is the part that's decks because you look at some other teams the sixers the celtics that are that are newly appointed as as playoff competitions as contenders and you say they're only going to get better in theory right they're gonna get injured people back or they're going to get more experience for young guys in this case your team is predicated on older guys who have experienced ready who need to stay healthy and at at the very best estimate i guess would improve upon understanding the system and their play together i mean i guess the only knock on the rockets you could say is that they made it this far playing with this particular.
