"Why that spread has not really changed. So if anybody could speak to that it would be really hugely interested. Nate still can't hear you, man. I don't know the answer to that question, Lisa. I have no idea. I don't even know where you would go to see those metrics as far as like wrapped eth. I've been so far out of the shitcoin environment that I have no idea where you would go to see it. Yeah, but you can see where it would be hugely interesting to figure that out, right? Like if the top, whatever, 20 people are holding Ethereum. And they're holding millions or however much money. They're holding an eth. If they are actively buying to keep that spread tight, and then selling, you know, when the market, when the enthusiasm for Ethereum picks up and the market does the work for it, you know, they could maybe exit those positions. Well, there's so many games that can be played, right? Yes. Yeah, and if you look at the FTX story, it's amazing. He basically made up his own fucking Ronald McDonald coin and said, hey, this thing has value and then convinced other people it had value. And by doing so was able to create lots of financial leverage. I don't see why Ethereum would be any different. People forget that thing had a 70% pre mine. I'm going to say that again, 70 percent pre mine. And they've convinced everybody, this is somehow a good idea. They could use all of that to create all kinds of financial leverage to fucking make promises to people, to get real money, to use the real money, to buy or not Bitcoin, but Ethereum, to fuck with the price. I mean, there's so many games that sound like Fiat two. So I'm going to dig through glass note a little bit now that Lisa brought that up because they do track some of the wrapped Bitcoin metrics. And according to what I'm looking at right now, the circulating supply as November 16th was 244,000 wrapped Bitcoin circulating. So I'm just going to keep digging through this, see what else I can find. I'll send you a DM, Lisa, if I find anything

"To not only be the governor of Arizona for four years. I'm going to do two terms. I'm going to be your worst freaking nightmare for 8 years. And we will reform the media as well. We're going to make you guys into journalists again. So get ready. It's going to be a fun 8 years. I can't wait. That seems a little threatening. She's the first person I was going to say. Oh my God. How do I imprison journalists? That's Hitler. Straight up. She's Ava brawny. Well, if she loses, she can always open a restaurant. Okay. If we have to fight through the BS and the garbage, then we will fight through the BS in the garbage But how do you get fair and free elections? You have to fight and win to make them fair and free. And we needed another stark reminder that we have incompetent people running the show in Arizona. Who is ready for a change? We had great patriots around this state show up today. It was so amazing. They showed up at the polls. Early this morning, only to be told the election equipment didn't work. Two minutes in two minutes into voting, we had people being told, well, you're going to have to put your little ballad over here into another box. Guys, the fake media back there tried to tell us we were wrong for asking questions about our elections. Right. So they had a mechanical glitz that they then fixed, which was not a democratic father of any kind. But okay, it sounds like she's getting ready to lose and claim fraud, right? Because a she already said that she will only she will only say it's fair if she wins. True. She's been selling for a while. Right. Then she can kind of become the Ronald McDonald of. Her restaurant

"Like the way McDonald's is, did you ever get that? Like a Big Mac has the flavor profile of vomit, but I like it. Oh, I'm really scared that you're right. You genuinely bite into a Big Mac next. It won't put you off. It would have just made you accept puke more in your life. Genuinely. Does that mean that there's something in the Big Mac which is already digesting it before you eat it? Oh my God. Pineapple. Like run, I just have a vision of Ronald McDonald just eating himself. And getting the burger at taking the lid off and then just some acids from his stomach just on top so it will start before he hands it over to the person who shaking comes to the front desk and we are they baby birds we're just holding our mouths open while our mom Ronald McDonald just vomits big minds.

He said, I rambled on. I understand what you're saying. The problem is in the moment trying to determine like what right now is the thing that you should buy, keep it unopened and put it away in storage. It's difficult to put your finger on what the most popular thing is. What are kids watching? You have a son mode. I have a three year old. He watches whatever you can find on the Internet. Did you watch miss Rachel? Is that usually, I don't think he watches much of her that I've seen. It's like story song or story time, but she makes millions of dollars, and it's very simple to the point. Green screen in the back, teaching kids colors and shapes and stuff. What's the real popular one again? Blippi. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, I don't even know if they have merch for some of these. I don't know if he's controversial, but he has merch and stuff in target. I mean, he's really gigantic. And now he has a spin off flippy of someone who replaced him in the costume. He was actually just here at the Orlando.

How about how about the story out of Washington state, one of the bluest of the blue states in the world? They had a big snowstorm this week. A county that got affected, they wouldn't allow they rejected the help from the county to clear out the snow because the county doesn't have a vaccine mandate. You can not make this crap up.

"Breaking from the post millennial dot com. Ronald McDonald house to evict families with young children who are unvaccinated. Quote, they are evicting my son with leukemia and other children or adults who are suffering with sick children into the snow. The Ronald McDonald house in Vancouver, British Columbia, allegedly serving an eviction notice on unvaccinated children with serious illnesses, including cancer and their parents. Austin Ferguson, from British Columbia, the father of the four year old boy with leukemia, who has been undergoing treatment since October. Said that they are going to lose their home if they do not in 5 days if they do not get vaccinated. Now this is the Ronald McDonald house charities, which I think is like the official charity of McDonald's corporation. Is that right? Yeah. He wrote quote all tenants, adults and children over the age of 5 who are not vaccinated, are out by the end of January. So basically, if you have a four year old that has leukemia, the stated position of the official charity of McDonald's corporation is that if you don't take a vaccine despite your life threatening, you're already dealing with something that could potentially kill you, we're gonna kick you out of our

"I don't know if you're gonna crush me dude. I don't know, I was the captain of my quiz bowl team in high school. Gauntlet thrown down. Wow, here's all the questions, though, so that's probably true. I don't know. But I've already so rigging Victor. This is rigged. I've already registered the username all father mimer. And I've been drinking from the meme as well since day one, so I have received all the knowledge here. So you will have a tough time. Against me, I can tell you that buddy. I'm a little intimidated. You know what is interesting? It's like, you're even looking back in the history of trivia. I think one of the very first trivia games that was there was like a game show. Wasn't there a game show back in like the 50s or 60s Joel? That cheated. And it was made a breezy Robert Redford made a movie about it called quiz show where basically they fed the guy the answers. Yeah. I know. That's not going to happen though a vector. We saw that problem in the game as well. So how do you solve that problem? Yeah, it's actually something that came along roughly one month ago in our development. So we were contacted by the amazing people at chain link. And one of their cool functions with their blockchain technology is that they have a solution called VRF, which in essence verifies that or assures that all the quiz questions in our games are fetched at random and are provable fair. So we actually utilize that technology to assure our players that the quiz database in one versus one fetch just questions at random and provable fair. So that's a very cool thing. Blockchain solves a lot of trust issues in society. But who would have thought it would solve that part in question games? So that's a very neat function. That is added into the meme request game. So people can always even when you have big stakes in the game, you can always rely on that. No one in the one versus one game. And knows what questions are coming in that sense. So the app is coming actually might be out by the time the show is on. And I was like, sure, when we're airing. So what are the time frames for the token idea and the app launch? Okay, so we're doing a for the meme or token. We're doing a combined launch with an ideo at starter and an IEO at gate dot IO, lots of IOs there. In an EIEIO down on the farm. Well, Ronald McDonald is not joining the token sales. That's old's brother. It's old McDonald that had the farm. Reynolds got a shitty restaurant. That's true.

So that was kind of neat to see full sore because I saw the original chaos and I saw the later cast. Yeah, it was cool with, you know, And he was the entrance. Yeah. Who went to my high school points? The same paths? Yeah. Yeah. So we have that anniversary and also it kind of ties in With the death of Willard Scott, which was reported But Willard Scott passed away yesterday. The C 100 years young former today show weatherman 87 87 years old. But he was a a TV bozo as well in the late fifties and early sixties. How you know local stations all have their own bozo shows like we did on W. G. N they had a local show and the T V station in Washington, D. C. And he did bozo for a few years there when most of the bozo shows did not last as long as the W G N wanted the one in Washington when that show was canceled. One of its sponsors. This new fledgling hamburger joint called McDonald's had Bozo as its spokesperson. But Bozo in Washington got canceled. So the McDonald's people go to Willard Scott, can you create a new character to be the TV pitchman for it? And Ronald McDonald's was Ronald McDonald was created. Willard Scott was the very first Ronald McDonald. Wow. You mean, but he didn't invent it. He just played He pretty much invented it. He created the character, the whole look and everything that well, it was a different look. The the early Ronald McDonald look on YouTube and you'll see He had like a food tray on his head. It was really kind of creepy Look, and it was, like really kind of where he's a clown and McDonald's, thankfully changed damage to then they called me. Oh, Burnett much more friendly, Uh, imagery on that whole thing. So, um, Wow, I never knew that. So, uh, you know, Willard Scott did it for a few years. Then a bunch of different actors did it for a couple of years at a time. Have been many actors that have done Ronald McDonald in 1968 1969. The actor who played Ronald McDonald, Ray Rayner, He was Ronald McDonald. Reindeer was Ronald McDonald, 1968 and 69. Oh, my God. So now and then did he dovetail that Because of his fame, as is Oliver all, Oliver. I guess. I mean, I guess he was just known as, uh, you know, because McDonald's is local here. Very probably. They probably knew that he was capable of creating a character like that. Oh, my gosh. Look at the the lineage little No. You're clowning little I do no more than a grown man really should know about these things. Uh, And the anniversary we accidentally found out this morning is my this, uh Uh, September 8th will be my 27th year here on WGN Radio. I started in 1991 on WGN TV.

"Imagine you've just been told that your child has a very serious medical condition that requires an unknown amount of time in the hospital. And an extensive amount of time away from home. What do you do? Where do you go? If you had an option of a home away from home, wouldn't that make the challenge is a bit more manageable? Our first guest today is going to share why the outpouring of support to build a house where families could stay while their Children are in the hospital is affectionately called the House that love bills. Then we're going to learn about a home away from home. That is an extension of the WVA for veteran and military families. My first guest today is an Petri, president and CEO of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin. Welcome to the show today. An thank you. It's good to be here. We're happy to have you here and hear all about Ronald McDonald house. Um, So what is it about the house that appeals to your passion? Family is a passion of mine and everything about Ronald McDonald House is about keeping families together during a really difficult time in their life. So as a mother of four daughters. I actually was able to use the Ronald McDonald house when my oldest daughter was seriously ill as an infant. And from that moment on, I always knew that if I had, and when I have the time to give back, I wanted to do it. In part with Ronald McDonald House. So I was fortunate enough to be accepted as a board member. And after serving on the board for about 4.5 years, I transition to the role of president Go, and it spent nine years and I have not looked back from them. And I'm sure when you have a personal experience with an organization that makes it really easy to get involved. I imagine right it is and I always say to our friends who come through and get to visit the house that You can never leave without feeling grateful. It is hard to not be passionate and not feel gratitude every day as we in our own small part, add to the experience that our families receive when they're at Ronald McDonald House. Relationships with our donors and friends, the relationships with families, the relationships that we have with our wonderful volunteer base. All add to why it is exciting to be here, and I'm just so honored to be in my role. Well, and a lot of people myself included. We have heard about the rattle McDonald house. I mean, probably everybody has and we know what provides wonderful support for families. But there may be some people who aren't aware of all the different things you guys do. So can you take a little bit of time and and talk about the house and the services you provide? Yes, I would be happy to so many people believe that a Ronald McDonald house is just a place to stay. But when you are a family who stays at the Ronald McDonald House, you not only have a warm and comfortable bedroom, but you also have programs. You also have the community of up to 70 families who stay with us each night and it is through those communities that are families can gain support. And share with each other because no one knows better what it feels like to go through this than another family who is experiencing a significant illness or injury of their child. There's no one better to talk about that experience than a family. So I'm just so honored to have with me. Tiffany Tiffany and her family. Had stayed here a few years ago. Her daughter, Lydia, is now a beautiful nine year old and I would just be so appreciative of Tiffany sharing her story about the community and the support that she received from Ronald McDonald House. Okay, Tiffany, let's let's hear how the rattle McDonald house has affected you and impacted your family. Thank you for having me and thank you for allowing me to share what the Ronald McDonald house is done for our family. So we found out when I was pregnant that my daughter was having some complications. So July 25th 2011. I walked out of our home and I wasn't sure. Be giving birth that date or I'd be admitted to the hospital. And I ended up not walking back into my home until six months later. So we went in, and we had our daughter and I was able to stay in the hospital a couple nights. And the last thing from my mind was, Where are we going to be as a family? We were informed that, um our child would be in the hospital indefinitely. They weren't really sure if she was going to make it. And so, um That was kind of furthest thing from our mind, but One thing that made it really hard was when my parents brought down my older two girls, Um, we couldn't find a hotel room. There was a conference in Milwaukee and they had every single hotel felt And so my parents were lucky to get a hotel room for one night, And then they bounced another hotel room. And then they had to drive three hours back home. Um, because there were there were no rooms. So we were unfortunate enough to get a sleeper room at the hospital. For one more night, And after that we had nowhere to go. So we were on the waiting list at the Ronald McDonald house. But, um I had my two girls three hours away. I had a very sick child in the hospital and the closest hotel room that we could get was 35 minutes away. And, um It's just really hard when your daughter or a child is in the nick you you are not able to sleep there so we could visit at any time. But we weren't able to spend the night there. I remember getting that phone call. And just remember feeling released. I had heard about the running Donald house before. But prior to July, 25th I didn't think that I needed it..

Ted Lasso: Lessons on Leadership From a Fictional Character

"I for anyone who has the unfortunate fate of not having watched head lasso yet. What are you even doing people. How would you describe the character of ted lasso. So i think ted so is it shouldn't be a serious character right. This is a college football coach from kansas. Who is going over to coach. Manage in the english premier league. The whole setup feels absurd. Which i think is why the character seems to work so well because this guy is a. He's folksy. he has these things he will say. I mean come on. Sam was more open than the jar peanut butter on my kitchen counter. That's right y'all don't know. I like to keep the peanut butter open. That way whenever i walk back and just stick my finger and yet he has this inner goodness that i think when when he comes across people that they seem to react to you coaching football make. You are a legend for doing something. So i mean it's meno murdy well you know. I've heard that tune before. But here i am still dancing. Ted last. So is the quintessential mid western kindness guy. You know a guy who wants to do well in the world treat other people the right way and just kind of live life with optimism and kindness and all those like grape characteristics that we'd all like to have. Yeah i think it really is his relentless optimism. That wins you over in the show. Is there a particular scene in the series that you think really captures that element of his personality. You know i was thinking about this. In the first episode. He's gone over to england. He's been introduced to the media. He talks to the team. And everybody's obviously it's not going well and then him and coach beard kind of redecorate the office. They put up the john wooden pyramid of success. They put up. All these american touchstones like muhammad ali poster in the miracle on ice poster all in the office. And then roy kent the kind of the you know. The quintessential english footballer. He comes in the office and he calls him ronald mcdonald and i think he uses an expletive and then he leaves the office and ten lasso goes he thinks may now wait. We win them over if he thinks he's mad. Now wait until we win them over.

"Hymns that directly improve the health, education and well being of Children in our community. The Ronald McDonald House is the cornerstone program of our MHC and provides temporary housing for families who traveled to Las Vegas to receive critical medical treatment for their Children and her on the phone right now with marketing coordinator for the Ronald McDonald house. That would be Caroline Kresser. Hi, Caroline. Gloria. I'm doing great. Thanks so much for having me on today very much. My pleasure. Now I know you've got something coming up in the bed, a weak little less than two weeks that you want our listeners to know about. But before we do that, Let's do the rundown of what Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas does here in our community, our main program as you had kind of mentioned in the intro. We have the Ronald McDonald house, which is what we're most well known for. Essentially what our house does is. We provide housing and meals, transportation to and from the hospital For families who have Children who are in town receiving medical treatment. This could be anything from Live in a rural area and they don't have, you know, intensive care for their child's treatment. Or maybe they were in town visiting when something happened, and they ended up at the hospital. So essentially, if you're coming from out of town. Obviously, medical costs are already extremely high, and so to have to pay for a nightly hotel for up to several weeks up to a month up to a couple months. It's extremely expensive. So one thing we can do is provide that housing to kind of alleviate some of the stress of where people gonna be sleeping while they're here trying to take care of their Children, and Caroline know what child who's in the hospital undergoing treatment, either short or long term taking care of the child is a no brainer. Why was it obvious that this needed to be done that that the families of the sick Children needed to be taken care of? Can you tell me a little bit exposition about that happened kind of the back story of the Ronald McDonald House Charities overall started In Pennsylvania. There was actually a doctor who started noticing that he had some, you know, kids that he was treating, and the families of those kids were sleeping in their cars in the hospital parking lot because they didn't have anywhere to go. And so he was like we have to. We have to figure out a better solution. And so he threw some partnerships that he had got local owner operator of a McDonald's there to get involved, and that's how they became, You know, to be our largest corporate sponsor. And so they opened the first Ronald McDonald house for that reason, mainly because there was there was just a need for the folks in the hospital saw a need for this service. And you know, when a kid is in the hospital, there is nothing more important than for his parents or his siblings to be right there by his side. Can't you can imagine that as a kid. It's already super scary. To be in a hospital setting like that, and you know if it's the parents, for whatever reason, because I can't afford it, or, you know, take the time off. Work cannot be able to be there. By that child side. It's going to take that child a lot longer to recover, and there have been studies that have proven that it seems pretty obvious, but they've even done studies and it's proven that that helps keeping your family members close to you while you're in the hospital really does help you recover and so That's just kind of our core mission. We want to be able to keep those families close. You know, to their sick Children in the hospital Well, and I love it that the doctor was paying attention. I've so to speak it to notice that this need was so great. How long ago did that happen? That was geez, I believe in this 70. Don't quote me on that. But it's been a few decades, I think is the seventies as well. So you guys have been going strong since then. And what kind of resource is do you provide for these families? So we provide? I mean, a little bit of everything. Obviously, If you've ever been to her house, we operate similarly to a hotel where they have Jewel rooms with the bathroom and beds and, you know, TV and all the things that you'd find in a normal hotel room. Then we also have common spaces, which right now are under some restrictions. Do you know to Cove it and trying to keep our families and our staff safe, But we have a lobby area with some couches. Kind of the meeting places. You know, our living room is essentially also our lobby. Which just shows you how homey are building really is. We have a kitchen, which normally the families are able to use. We have dinner groups who come in and prepare dinner for the family. So we do have a nightly dinner service that we prepare for them. Because obviously you can imagine if you're At the hospital all day long. The last thing on your mind is, you know what am I gonna make for dinner? And then we also have Ah, playroom that you know a lot of times, there's other siblings with the family and so the you know, while the child getting the care is in the hospital, the siblings air here, staying at the house with us and with the with the parents, and so we've got a playroom for them. We also have a laundry room on site. So that way they don't have to go off site to a laundromat or anything like that. They have access Todt longer whatever they need here on site, and then we also offer transportation to and from the hospital. We have shuttle drivers who we? You know, it's just like your normal passenger van. We take those families and you know if they need additional assistance to go somewhere we do also Provide cab rides at no charge, depending on the situation. So we really try to take care of everything that we can think of. That could help them be able to spend our time really focusing on their child versus having to deal with all these other little life things. And where are you located? Are you close to a hospital? Yeah, we're located Officer Hera indicator. The U. N C is actually the closest hospital to a sunrise, though, is the hospital where we have the most. Families who are who are staying and so, but it's not a you know, it's maybe 15 20 minute ride at tops, eh? So it's not a bad right over there. Sure, And when Wild Sunrise because of the Children's hospital is probably why you have most of your clients never lack of a better word. Do you service all the hospitals? We Dios? I mean, we have partnerships like I said, with you and see Sunrise, you know, even also Summerlin hospital, But a lot of it's not so much a partnership as it is, you know, wherever the families are We? We help them. So we I mean, basically, everyone in town who is a social service worker at a hospital should be aware of the run on the Donald House. And so we really rely on the social workers in the hospitals to help us identify those families as they see, you know, like, okay, we see that they're from out of town. You know, we'll ask them. Do you have family in town that you're staying with? You know a lot of times the answer is yes. And so that's great. You know, Having them with family is probably the best, you know. So we kind of rely on the social workers to help us identify the families that need help. Because not every family has heard of. You know, the Ronald McDonald house. So if if you know and or are thinking about that, when their child is, you know, just being admitted to, you know, the ICU or something like that. They're not really thinking about Where am I going to stay or, you know, they're just like I'm sitting at my child's bedside. No matter how long it takes, and so the social worker's kind of help us make those connections with the families to say, you know, you don't need to be here the whole time. Why don't we take you over to the Ronald McDonald house and then you can sleep there and you'll be much better to help your child tomorrow..
