Is There A Way To Speed Up COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution?
"The question for today how can the. Us turn things around and quickly get vaccine distribution on track. Here with me. is dr amish adultery. An infectious disease physician and a senior scholar at johns hopkins center for health security. Thanks for coming on the takeaway dr short. Thank you for having me so doctor. Let's start with hospitals. They were rightly given priority for the vaccine. But now they're getting blamed for the slow rollout and for not vaccinating workers fast enough. So you're you work at several hospitals. Can you give us a look into what's happening there. You have to remember that. There's no such thing as a hospital worker. Whose only job is to vaccinate people. So what hospitals are doing are pulling people with other jobs to ronco vaccination clinic and these covert vaccines are not. The same thing is giving employees. Tetanus shots hepatitis b. shots influenza shots. There's a lot involved and the same hospitals that are tasked with responding to an inordinate number of patients are being asked vaccine so there's a lot of precautions that they have to put in place got to set up timings for people to be vaccinated. They've got to find a place to vaccinate people in a place where people can stay fifteen minutes after their shot. In case they have an allergic reaction. They have to be in close proximity to an emergency department. In case severe allergic reaction happens and it it just takes some time to scale this up so hospitals. Don't have the resources to do this in a rapid fire manner and i think they shouldn't be blamed for this. They're being actually tasked to do something. Where the government really has failed because there was not much planning done for that last mile of vaccination and it fell to hospitals to set up their own programs and their own prioritization. And all of that in it's in. It's not surprising to me that there's been lags and delays but it is speeding up and i do think the answer. Here's more resources. What could hospitals do with those more resources. If hospitals had more resources they could have vaccination basically happening twenty four seven instead of at specific times. They can vaccinate more people at a given time. Instead of having certain slots for people to to come to be vaccinated they would have other people to be able to monitor people after their vaccination so if there is an allergic reaction. It's not the same people that are giving the vaccine that have to kind of keep their eye on. Who's who's around in the in the room. That might be having an allergic reaction all of that would make vaccination more seamless and faster but some of the slowness because this vaccine is available on an emergency use authorization and that requires forms consent and checking that consent to make sure it's all accurate. All of that does take time which is very different than when you go to get a flu. Shot at employee health at hospital. Just they basically just jab you as soon as you walk in the door. You yourself have had your first dose. Is that correct yes okay. Have you witnessed any reluctance or skepticism in one of the hospitals. I'm on staff at. There's a lot of misinformation being spread among certain members of the healthcare staff including nurses and doctors where basically every conspiracy theory that you've maybe seen on. Social media is getting repeated in a hospital hallway. So yes that does happen in my experience. It's been really minimum of people and not something. That's generally reflective of what healthcare workers think of this vaccine but clearly the anti vaccine movement and all of those conspiracy theories healthcare workers are not unfortunately immune from it and that has played a role trying to combat that misinformation with facts. And so doctor. How do you balance the need. To prioritize healthcare workers and the elderly with also just getting as many people vaccinated as possible. Who want the vaccine. You have to remember that the overall goal is to get all the eligible populations vaccinated so that this public health emergencies behind us and we cross the herd immunity threshold and hospitals are not inundated. There is a reason for the priority scheme though in order to get the vaccine into people where it will have the biggest impact fast and that's healthcare workers nursing home residents and then kind of moving through other priority games. But you have to remember that we can't be dogmatically wedded to that in if that schedule is an obstacle to people getting vaccinated if it's causing hospitals consternation on how they're going to evacuate and how they're going to deal with excess doses. Maybe they've unfrozen a lot more doses than they needed that day and they've got some that they're gonna either throw out or give to somebody. That's not priority group. One a the answer. There is to give it to somebody. Who's in another priority. Because you have to remember. The overarching goal is to get people vaccinated. And we can't let an overly bureaucratic process steiner that goal and it's not right for governors and other politicians to try and penalize hospitals for doing the best they can and i think that's the most counterproductive is finding hospitals or decreasing their allocation. If they're going outside of the priority group because the goal is always going to be to get the shot into people's arms and who would be the next priority group would it be people with preexisting conditions for instance so overall the cdc says priority group one be would be people that are above the age of seventy five years of age as well as front facing workers so meat packing plants or in grocery stores or transportation workers. That's the overall phase one beat but some states are saying we're going to go to maybe above age sixty five so there is some variation from state to state. But it's generally people that are going to be dealing with the general public but they're not healthcare workers as well as people of advanced age because we know they have a high risk for severe complications. Are there states that have done a particularly good job so far. Well if you look at states in the number of doses that they've allocated north dakota south dakota standout They were places that got hit very hard and most recently and they seem to be rolling out vaccine at a faster pace than many other many other states some states only maybe fifteen percent of their doses have been allocated but again that may be a lot of the idiosyncrasies of each state and you likely will see things homogenize soon as state start ramping up and getting things in order but would say in general. No state is doing the best job Everybody could do better and we have to do better in order to put this epidemic pandemic behind us. So what are you looking for. The biden administration to do what can be what can be done to speed things up the by the ministration can ensure that hell that states have. The funding in there was a funding. Bill passed on christmas eve. But it's also just trying to understand what's going on each state and meeting states where they are. Some states may need different types of help. And i think that's going to be important as having the cdc step into its role of being this coordinating body for the states and allowing the public health response to to really be fine tuned by the cdc adding its expertise to what's going on in each in each state. I think it's also the case that we need more guidance on what to do when you have leftover doses and nobody left in the priority group. Yesterday the cdc did have a press conference or a meeting where they did talk about the fact that the goal is not to have vaccine in the fridge but into into people's arms and we shouldn't be wasting doses or doing anything like that so that type of work that kind of leadership of how this vaccination program should go would would be very useful. I also think the federal government should think about trying to help coordinate mass vaccination sites especially as we get into the community dwelling people people who aren't in hospitals nursing homes who are relatively easy to vaccinate but people who live at home can be done. It's at stadiums. Can they be done at convention. Centers Can we use old school gymnasiums during h one n one i got vaccinated at an old school gym. Can we start doing that to make things move much more seamlessly faster sort of borrowing from what israel is doing. Which is the country. That's leading the world in
"ronco" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Ronco. Is there gonna be hiring a new GM as John Elway after 10 years as the general manager of the Denver Broncos is stepping aside? From the role he's going to stay on as the director of football operations gonna be joining us here in just a few minutes, but big out Just give me your first thoughts when you heard the news, and I know you have Ah, really, really good relationship with John Elway. Obviously, he was your quarterback and You've carried on that relationship for a long time, right? Well, initially, I was like, Well, I get to see him or, you know, get to see Matt bit. Um um Matt Russell Moore. I'll get a chance to be in their lives more now that they have more time. And with John, Um 10 years is a long time for a guy who has retired from the NFL and had the kind of impact that he's had on the game. To be in that position and at 60 years old. I think that's not a bad decision. Now. If I was him, I would absolutely want to stick around. The game of football because it really is a great game. It really is a great game and the more that you can be around it and have a positive effect on the game. The better it is for you as individual because You always want to feel relevant Who wouldn't want to feel relevant after being So so so relevant to this entire organization both as a player and a front office member. You know, when you look at what The Broncos accomplished over the 10 years with him is general manager If you were to say to any team That look over the next decade. You're gonna go to two Super Bowls and you're gonna win one of them, but they're also going to be some serious growing pains and some serious hard times for the franchise. What team isn't going to take that right? And I think that The Broncos. Don't get paid Manning. If John Elway's not here. And the Broncos. Quite frankly. Don't get paid Manning. If John Box is not here, you know, like you got to remember how important that John Fox higher Woz. Because that Made everything around here. More relaxed. It gave everybody more. Um uh, they could Have Less of the pressure to deal with some of the things that we were dealing with. In the previous, you know, coaching deal with Yeah. John Fox changed everything. John Fox came in that higher of John Fox. You know, And I know he didn't killed a Super Bowl win. I get it. Gary Kubiak is responsible for that. But the higher of John Box or where this franchise was the I just never forget. The interview process in this new age of social media when the Denver Broncos members of the media uh We're posting guy's coming in for those interviews, and how open it made you feel as a Bronco fans need those? Oh, yes, is coming in and having a quick, you know, one minute interview with a guy in the car on the way to Dub Valley. I don't never forget how that made me feel as a fan that it was an open conversation about Getting things right and I loved it. It's It's tough because you know me. I am I. You know, I have good days and I have bad days and they could all be pointed to how the Broncos did know about. Listen, man, We're on the phone 30. Seconds after the game lives, right, right and the one thing That I think You exhibit that a lot of Bronco fans exhibit That you wear it on your sleeve. You know, I'm saying it's all out there. You know, when the Broncos aren't doing well, it just ruins your day. You know it just ruins it. Just ruins your mood for You know you're you're Weekly excitement and I think that Z I think that's probably fair to a lot of people around here to me. As a former player, it's not as Crushing as it is to guys like you who have paid their hard earned money as a season ticket holder and a stakeholder really in this organization for me, I look at it like what did they do wrong? Can they fix it? And you may just want to know that we went well, but I know you changed as a broadcaster Now. No, there's no There's no question. I mean, you I mean, you know this as well as anybody. I mean, uh, being around you has changed. What? I how I watched the game and you know, just in the conversations that we have, you're like, Oh, you noticed that you write it because yes, it has. It has changed. But you know for somebody who you know, I Craig Morton fan, right was you know a fan of all these guys that came through here, You know, Number seven stands up as as he is. He's one of the faces on Mount Rushmore, right of great Denver Broncos. Players. And now, obviously being a part of this organization the way that he has I do think it was. It is going to be interesting to see Who they get. And what their qualifications have to be because there are seven GM openings right now, and I cannot remember. Any time in my life. Where there has been seven openings in an off season seven in those seven openings. Um.

"Of advertising my Ronco Electric food dehydrated and beef jerky machine I've decided to drop the price. The new price is so ridiculously low you have to watch. Ronco. Does it does that name mean anything to you culturally? Yeah. Sure. It reminds me of the. Scattered infomercial. Watching I did late at night in college. But when you were growing up in. Korea and shoreline Washington and various spots in between like midway island. Yea. You didn't have You didn't. You didn't watch infomercials. No infomercials? On Korean television just just the normal weird length a normal length ads for. Crackers that tasted like squid and the hook that. Too but some are in the stay summers in the states. Sometimes my grandparents satellite dish we'd flip by infomercials. And you Kinda get sucked in a little bit. Yeah you mentioned before we started recording that that watching infomercials all the way through seem to you to be an activity that people did in college when they were high. Yeah. I was about you asked me if I watched a lot of infomercials and no like no if you're. Sober you do not sit and watch the end of the infomercial you go past the infomercial and see what's on. The other station, it's funny because I get drawn into infomercials not because I'm interested in the product, but I'm interested in the pitcher interested in watching someone make such A. Such a lot of effort to try and sell. Some ginsu knives or whatever he really is doing something most people in ads are not actually. Not doing anything they're not producing a product right in the middle of an activity. They're not. Battling entropy in any way, but that's not true infomercials. Versus you are seeing. Your fly on the wall for a project. Yeah. They're often said in A. Talk show environment or cooking show environment. Somehow talk show and kitchen like who are the eight hundred people that are in the studio audience of. Of like a dramatic commercials, but they're so happy to be there. You really I have never seen an audience that primed to like anything. Can you imagine a live music show where people are as nuts as the people at a at a chop? Would have been so much different and they all look like people that are actually that you would see at a at a an oprah show. It's not like they took a school bus down to skid row and gave everybody twenty bucks to. To come sit in a studio audience and and applaud there are a bunch of people that seemed like they lined up to be here. I've seen many a paid studio audience in La and it's tourist who got handed a thing at the corner of Hollywood invited. We're like oh boy. Oh, show not knowing what they have terrible experience they have signed up for. But. Maybe it's something about the second person. It's very important to have a second person, the Infomercial who tells you how to think about the situation in the product because when they're excited boy oh boy is that contagious? They can't believe it. They really can't and that makes you not be able to believe it either without her there. You would do I believe this. I. Guess I do. It's on TV chopping onions is so much work in but. I don't believe how easy it is. Now you know what? I think I, think there has to be a better way. Perpetually think this when I watch something being done I. think There has to be a better way. This can't be the peak of human potential and achievement. Think I'll hire someone to do. A better way I mean honestly that is what I think. Because I've seen myself try to change the shower head or whatever, and I'm like it eventually got. took six hours, two trips to the home depot and it really. It really would just make me happier if someone who knew what they were doing so already knows the better way. Does it right? Charging onions is so hard but when mindy does I don't even notice it. Yes. When I say higher I mean just expect someone else in my household to take care of A. Well, there's something about the kind of direct marketing energy of infomercials. That's just just really distinctly American. And weirdly. So much of the language infomercials and the the products that are that that I see the light of day in that as seen on TV. infomercial universe. have become part of just the the lexicon of America. We all think of. The the anything with matic at the end. All of the the the like. Act Now urgent pitch but wait there's more weight. There's. Now, as seen on TV, set it and forget it. It's a whole language and a lot of this language comes from one. Place and that is the Ronko Corporation is a really the Ronko Corporation well co twice it's it's. The Ron Corporation like the rand, Corporation. SHRIMP SCAMPI IT'S RONCO Corporation, it's like their AD corporation, but it's just a guy in his lazy boy what we're never going to go to Mars.

Escapism vs Essentialism - Short Term vs Long Term
"The discussion about escapism verses essentially is really question about short term versus long term. Now what does that mean for Your Business? My Buddy Nicholas Ronco headed into the other day with my other buddy rod gun tools on his show the rod life now put a link to that video in the comments below so that you can go and check it out but one of the discussions that one of the parts of this discussion. That became really interesting was when they talk about spas and this concept of escapism versus essentially. And what Nicole was saying was basically much. Spas tend to offer escapism. Whether that's in the form of pampering beauty. It's an escapism. Whereas what we really need to be focused on for the long term sustainability of a business is the essentially which might be things like I guess. Health Nutrition exercise and look my views on the idea of spas once on needs a pretty well known. So why go into that but I do think it's an interesting lens to look at things through escapism and essentially them because to me. It's a question of short term versus long term. Escapism is all about that. Short-term response from reality whereas essentially is about more of a long term sustainable view two things and look I think in the context of every business both the fine and certainly a market for both certainly right now during this crisis. No one would begrudge you a little bit of escapism. Let's be honest but at some point you need to get back to reality. You need to move on to more long-term more essential things so I think when you look at Your Business. It's good to look at it through these lanes of essentially escapism. What are you actually selling? You selling essential items or are you selling escapees and again either is fine and the reality is most businesses have probably selling both. But I think it's important to know at which point you're selling escapism versus essentially them. Because that to me informs how you'RE GONNA message it informs me what the price point. He's IT informs. Even the timing of when you're offering it so I think looking at your business through a lens of escapism versus essentially short term versus long term. I think it's a really powerful thing to help. I guess redefined what you'll really selling them. What the real value is that your bringing to the market. So do yourself a favor gone have looked you'll business through that lanes of escapism. Essentially I think it might be pretty revealing orbiting. That is it for today. I do thank you for your time and I. We'll be back again tomorrow.
Better Communication Through Letters
"Debbie Ronca is President of Sequoia coaching a Certified Life Coach. Speaker and disc profile trainer with John Maxwell team she is also the author of the family letter how to intentionally develop a culture of honor encouragement and value with your loved ones a bestseller in nine relationship in Harrington Categories Ronco wants start a global movement. So other families also benefit on the family wetter. We're going to talk about this today with Debbie. Debbie welcome to the show. Thank you so much for coming on. You are locked them. And thank you for having me of course so debbie for a lot of our listeners. That might not know what a family letter is. Could you go ahead and tell them what the impact of a family letter is and really what they could get out of it? That's a great question. Read on the family letter was basically something that we started as a tradition in our family years ago when our kids were growing up we had the intention of teaching them how to use their words To be encouraged others to be able to use the words to bless another person. And you know. Sometimes it's really hard for kids especially to verbalize. They feel a little embarrassed or uncomfortable. So we've found that using a letter was the safe way to go. That's great So I myself actually have done something like a family letter before in my family. It's not quite what you do But it really helped teach me how to express myself to my family in a healthy way and really be able to communicate and open wider doors. Is that the same hope that you are looking for with your letter. Absolutely the whole intent really is to let the other person know why their loved valued in celebrated and when you hear that from other family members it really just builds wonderful foundation of trust and connection and a bond and read what we did specifically is. We made it a tradition on our birthdays. We thought why not birthdays the day. Everyone is celebrated right so why not let that be the day that we received this letter and so we taught our children from the time they were young and of course we made the what the intent that had to be in the letter? Simple so they could do it and you know when I speak at women's events I always tell the moms don't worry about the grammar. Don't worry about the punctuation year teaching them how you used the words and you don't ever want to make them feel it has to be perfect because it's coming from their heart and of course as our family grew and I say read. We've been doing this now for over thirty years and after thirty years our children thirty eight thirty seven and thirty five. They still want their letters. I mean it is a big tradition in our house. Love that I love that. That's fantastic. Could you dive a little deeper into the content of these family letters absolutely well like in the beginning we make it really simple for the kids because we want them to right so it really? You need to not just tell the person you love them but why because when you specifically say why it goes deeper you know. It's just not the Cliche I love you but when you hear why and then you want to celebrate their gifts and talents you wanNA recognize Any celebrations in their life and of course as we got older we expanded that. So Ah Chris. Reflecting on the past year of this person's life were on their birthday. And you know everybody walks through a dark time trial a difficulty and we write about that in the letter like Geez. Jonathan I remember when you were going through that difficult relationship and the way that you handle bit really made us proud of you. You showed a lot of kindness and compassion and so we actually recognize encourage. The person helping walk through difficult times as well. That's really nice to hear. I think a struggle that a lot of families go through not just with something like this but milestones for any of their children is. When do we start you know? When do we put him on a bike? When do we teach them how to do this? When would you say is a good time to get your children to start being engaged in this? When we started the letter read. Our children were five and seven while and then we had an remind you that the letters were short but they were learning how to communicate and we had our third child when he turned five. We would always do this moment of re writing letters and reading the letters at our dining room table so he grew up here in his father received letters his mother his brother and sister so when he turned five he said. I WANNA DO LETTERS. I want in and so he actually turned from the Observer to the writer so he started as early as five and I believe the power in at read is the consistency like we chose birthdays. And so we know every birthday we're gonNA gather and have letters and of course being a mother and a father. We've added the mother and father's day letter in there too. Oh of course you have to make sure that you've got a little extra recognition for all the hard work you do for raising your children It's the best gift. Jerry Seib really love those letters absolutely so I think like anybody else. Not all of our lives are rainbows and lollipops. Right kind of goes through a hard time and sometimes that hard time is reflected onto our family. How can the letter be used as a catalyst for accomplishing forgiveness? Or even reconciling some things in the past one of the best ways that I think he can open up. The line of Communications is through the power of a letter. I would think that you would agree with me read. Don't you feel that when a relationship is broken? One of the most difficult things is to be able to come back and talk face to face because there's so much hurt and there's so much wounding and you still wind up fighting and you don't reconcile but I feel when you can write in a letter. What you like about that person. What you love about that person that you've missed the relationship that you're sorry that they disagreed you know. Can we start again? I believe you can maybe crack a door open. That has been slammed shut for years and that could be the beginning of the communication. Because it's a safe place to see if you can open that door again and we have a great story with our children. They were seven and five at the time at that time. We were doing Christmas letters as well. And you know how children are they. Can they argue? They fight and they wrote their letters and nobody knows what's written in the letter to you. Read it and my daughter wrote a letter to her brother saying that she was so sorry that he was mean to her and he she wished that he could be a nicer brother and my son and in his letter to his sister wrote. I know I haven't been a great brother and I know I've been hard on you. I'm really sorry. When they both read their letters. They looked at each other and they ran over and they hugged each other and Oracle. The letter gave the voice to the prop room. And so I know children can do that. I really believe adults can do that. And you know in this crisis time read. I'm really thinking hearts are being tender is D- A lot of people are klaren teen. A lot of people are thinking about really what is important in life now. This may be a great time to write that letter to that broken relationship and try to restore it absolutely. I think as many people would agree with me. A family is very important especially during these times. That's really who you're GONNA hold dear. You have close. I know I personally have been talking to my mother way more than I have before during this little walk down. I'm sure this letter can go even further pass. Your family can not absolutely you know. I believe everybody in life should receive a letter from someone so I really think if you sat down and thought about it you may have that teacher that mentor that business partner that neighbor that Fran and somebody who's impacted your life that you could just take time and write them a letter to let them know how they impacted your life. It would mean the world to them
The Story of Spanish
"All the political wrangling in the United States over its immigration policies concerning people from south of the border the nation's long and intimate relationship with Spanish speaking neighbors is often overlooked in fact in the United States. Were already one of the top Spanish speaking countries in the world. So how in the first place did a dialect spoken by? Just a handful of shepherds up northern Spain eventually become the world's second most spoken language. Jon Benet Nadeau and Julie Barlow are the husband and wife team the history and role of I the French language in their book. The story of French and now they're examining the same story for Spanish book is called the story of Spanish. They join us now to share their intriguing biography of Spanish. Hola AMIGOS LAST TIME. We spoke you were. We were all in the French mode. And now we've got this book which is kind of like a biography of Spanish. What is the importance of the Spanish language on our planet today? It's a large language its spoken by about four hundred twenty million people in twenty countries. So it's either as a large native base contrary to French for example which has a small native base right so language also that as peculiarity. It's actually less taught. Outside of its of its natural sphere. Except for three countries three countries weights were very largely taught as a second language United States Brazil and France These three countries make up about I would say seventy percent of their learners outside of southern. Excuse that's interesting. There's there's two dimensions of the impact of a language than how many people speak it natively and how many people are learning it as a second language and it's not always correlated. No not at all but one of the interesting things one of one of the motivations for writing the book was this realization. We had that. It was you know growing as a second language obviously in the United States but that the United States itself was becoming a kind of Hispanic country and the United States as we tell the story in the book that the United States has its own Spanish language academy one interesting things about Spanish. Unlike say French is it's very decentralized. The control of the language and the standards of the language are managed among the twenty or twenty two Spanish speaking countries and the United States is one of them and it's an important growing center so we We thought that was really interesting. We didn't quite a bit of the research for the book. We we did. Um while you're living in Phoenix Arizona Okay and We were looking at him. You know what was happening. In the dynamics of the United States the United States is is very interesting. Because we're talking. But fifty million Hispanics Spanish speaking people in the United States. It's almost as if the United States and grew country of the size of Spain. That's quite underestimated. Linguistic power than fifty fifty s people in a very important country from economics and politics and so on one aspect. I find even more fascinating. Is that into discourse. Today we talk about Hispanics entering the country all but historically it's United States that entered Hispanics fear like all of the southwest starting from Texas to California was Spain. Oh so in other words. We took that we bought it or we conquered it. Are we next it and things so it was Spanish speaking I and we in is that why I looked at a chart in your book? And it shows clearly the south and the southwest in the West Coast along with Florida's where the most Spanish speakers are in the United States. I I was thinking that would be more immigration but actually it does mirror. Who was there? When we annexed that territory. Exactly what we were living in Phoenix. We were kind of stunned. I mean the people that you would think immigrants actually understood the land and they understood you know people were eating cactus and this lady that we're living in to make food out of it and they understood the climate. It's their climate. They were doing that a long time before the Louisiana purchase. Or whatever exactly exactly and they're still doing it and the rest of the standing around wondering what's going on and that you know. The Latinos are wandering the streets with garbage bags. You know. Let me get this. This is interesting because a lot of Americans have have anxiety about our country. You know becoming less pure English and so on but when you really look at the history. There's always been a substantial minority of people at one time a majority of people speaking Spanish in this out in the southwest. Yes yes in the center. Mississippi area was French. So you have that history and I remember when I was a student Used to go to Tex Mex restaurants in Montreal and saying this is not real Mexican food you know to realize many years later. That tex-mex is another brand of Mexican hat is something it makes it. It's not just a tacky commercial thing it's just don't feel region of a of a long time ethnic reality. It's its own brand. And the Anti EU cowboy culture in the United States was actually created in Spain and Spanish by Mexicans. Elder vocabulary stampede. All that is completely derived from Spanish. Ronco that's right. It all comes wrangler. It's endless all right. This is travel. With Rick Steves. We're talking with John John DOE and Julie Barlow about their book the story of Spanish before we get deep discussion genre and Julie. Tell us about writing this book. And and what? You're going in writing the book well. We had the enemy with the story of French which is sort of look at the history. And how the French was born in spread across the plan. And what were the factors that turned it into an international language and so we decided to do the same thing for Spanish? And it's a similar story but in many ways more ups and downs Spanish. As you mentioned the intro starts out as this language of shepherds basically northern Spain and then encounters these historical moments. Where in all languages like that where it's sort of make or break you know it. Spain could have become arabic-speaking could have been dominated by different waves of immigration over history and it had its kings that made fundamental decisions that shaped the language and so it's like a bookie would read for cultural background but very centered on just how the language made it. I mean it's a success
"ronco" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"What we want. We worry about my party. Jump because if we ever do y'all about the strong. Make the. He is Jalen rose dough. I'm David Jacoby. Cool. Sir, sir this old? Luma with putting it on wax. It's been loose. We're gonna Jacoby. be. Would we do? What they the people of candidate got what they wanted to Ronco raptors are and be a champions beating the warriors in game. Six in the bay. It was a thrilling game one fourteen one ten was the final score. Jalen rose you were in the building during the celebration. What did you think of this historic win for the raptors? I want to see is on my practice my boating do a little fishing. Did you know that I've never gone fishing? Did you know that never gone fishing, either? Here's what I thought his first off. A few things. Okay. Co wa Linter. Is right now, the king of the court, and here's what is situations like this people become media, groupies, and they wanna talk about, oh, it's LeBron. Oh, it's K D in all work like that. And sports I you I hold the trophy on the do right now there's a game called king of the court in this player of the week. There's player the month just MVP of the regular season. And then there's finals in BP Fulco watt Leonard who played nine games last year, missed twenty one games this year, you know, with the team's record was seventeen four messiah Jiri did a terrific job of building outta roster over the last couple of years that feature zero lottery picks. Zero lottery picks. Okay. So that cohesion of will let the coach of the year go into Wayne, Casey. We'll let the Margaret rose Ingo Kawara Linnart inner, he's an all-star MVP level player. You have cow Laurie. Who's a five time all star? But this is how you get it done. The value of team game one van V badly Siaka soul a game. Three soul a game. Four Danny green gain five surge of offer and you know what ended up happening in the final game. Everybody showed up every Toronto Raptors without curve. Kevin durant. Can I say this into a microphone because we're gonna keep saying what happened to the warriors, the Toronto Raptors without Kevin Durant plan for the warriors are just a better team. That's giving their credit. It's true. And it was truly team victory as you mentioned with all the row players showing up on the road. But I'm glad you brought Coa Leonard because at the end of the day, the finals MVP was the best player on the best team. He's done it with the Spurs now. He's done it with the raptors. He's taken down the warriors. He's taken down the heat. What does this postseason run? Tell you about where he ranks among the best players in the NBA. He's a three peak chiller now. I'm not a fool if the goes, they were warriors, Katie picked them in five. If Clayton injured bought away, we don't normally see those types of injuries happen so wish both of those guys get will maybe they would have won game six but the raptors are going to win this series with this challenge. Be about Kawai is he's the third person in the history of the Lee to win finals MVP for two different teams that's reinventing yourself. We see Kareem do it. We seen LeBron do it now. We see kuwa- do it on the biggest stage and he's the first person to ever do it in both conferences. And if you look at Coa Leonard he is a free agent in just weeks. He will be a free agent. Do you see him signing with the raptors you see him moving on, like he would? I see a situation that's going to upset the applecart in Toronto was, you know, how much I want him to stay and the parade in Toronto is going to be the most massive thing that the history of the NBA has ever seen don't get it twisted. You know how much I love Toronto that nascent is gonna go, but nana's for their parade. But the Washington Wizards are going to mess it up with a wrap this because they're going to sign messiah Jiri..
With Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors Find Success That Endures
"Coli Leonard is in the conversation of being the best player in the. World. There's no argument about that. Kawhi Leonard is certainly in the conversation. He's I think at this point certainly in the top three he was asked about that after the game. I just said you're the best player to league and he plays into Ronco. What does it feel like to hear that said about you? How do you feel you've established yourself and position to his playoff run? I don't really judge my you know game like the I'm more of a team team aspects with my team is going just wanna win on care about being best player. I want to be the best team always said that. And you know, just before the season when we made the trade massage felt that way about me, he told me how he felt and why he made the trade and, you know, just turning out. It's well now I mean we're in a finals in, we're not done yet. I mean, the trade cannot have turned out any better for really anybody associated with the raptors. I mean, they traded Damara Rosen Jacob poll. I believe that's how you pronounce his last name, if I'm wrong. I apologize in a protected twenty nineteen first round pick up protected twenty nine thousand first round pick protected. They got back awhile internet Danny green. That's a big time trade for the raptors. That was an all in move for the raptors. I think the rafters clearly saw LeBron's gone. You know lebrons part, owner of the rafters. He's out. We got a chance to go to the NBA finals, Boston kind of felt that way Philadelphia kind of felt that way. Mo- walkie. Certainly felt that way there are four teams felt like they had a chance to go to the NBA finals out of the east for the first time in eight seasons. The rafters did it. You made a tough trae at least an emotional decision when it came to D'amoto Rosen who certainly gave you his commitment when it came to wanting to be in Toronto. He got traded. These are the brakes so to speak, he's gone. You got a chance to get a top five player in the league who is healthy and motivated in Colli lynyrd. And he did exactly what he was supposed to do. He filled his end of the bargain. I got you to the finals he got you, as far as any player in your organization is taking you Vince Carter, couldn't do it. Damara Rosen couldn't do it. Colli Leonard did it. So he might not want to have the conversation about best player in the world. And I completely understand. I mean that's a conversation for us in the media. It's a conversation for fans to have. So and he kind of guy. So if you don't want to have that conversation. Fine. I'll have it for you. You were in the conversation for best player in the league, you're in the conversation, you're on the shortlist. There's five people that can make the argument, Katie Steph LeBron kuwa- a Janas. That's it. You just beat honest. You had a chance to go against Steph, if it's still up in the air, it can be undeniable. If you play really wellness NBA finals, and I have no doubts. I've no reason. To believe that he won't play. Well he's played well the last time he was there against the Braun when he was a younger player. Certainly have the experience and this one now not more experience than the warriors but Claus coming in. This is going to put together a really

"Tiger shooting for backpack majors. His sixteenth overall the PGA championship next weekend on CBS. What's a pretty good time? I think for everybody to stop saying how predictable the NBA playoffs are. Maybe they have been in the past not this year Boston blows out Milwaukee game one. Then they get smacked enforced rate. Dan, repeats Portland by twenty six in game five, and then Portland beat them by double digits in game six and then you've got Toronto Philadelphia the raptors when that first came by thirteen everybody is rolling in with their Philly can't win into Ronco takes then Philadelphia wins game two in Toronto. And then blows Toronto out and game three. And that's all about how cool is got one foot out the door and guys like cow, Lowry, Marcus all or washed up and. Philadelphia is going to give him a walkie hell in the conference finals. But then Toronto wins the next two games. And then it's time to break up. The sixers. Everybody's saying how bad his chemistry is the Joel Embiid is overrated. Depend Simmons might be better off center or on the team altogether. And then comes last night. Philadelphia. One twelve Toronto won a one. So now, it's time for everybody to take a seat and shut their mouth if the playoffs have taught us anything and pretty clearly they haven't. But if they have if you can't jump to any conclusion after one game ask Paul Pierce, ask anybody who thinks you can not even after a couple of games. Hell if the blazers listen to everybody outside their building after last season, the would not be where they are right now. But back to Philly because that's what the Sixers were last night. And that's what they went off last night earlier in the series. Sixers head coach Brett Brown. Try to give Jimmy Butler new handle James Butler, James wasn't having any of that. The fact is the old ones just better Jimmy buckets. Jimmy buckets was in the building last night in Philly. We had something special working when buckets showed up to work in a mini van. And Stirrup pants. Is this dude for real? I know there's a little bit different for real. When I saw that. I thought that had to be a Photoshop thought deadlocks somehow got in there and started doing den less type things who's got the Goan. Add the audacity the stones to pull off that. Look this got out of a minivan in store a pants before the biggest game of the year. That's serious heat. Right there you do that. And you're telling the world is I'm here. I got this. Let's do this. And he did he only had twenty five last night. But I say only because it felt like forty he had a huge impact especially in the first half when he had nineteen and was doing things like this Butler for three he'll be large thought the front of his over.

"But it's like over week. It's well over a week. So one of the I went through my drawers, and I was pulling out some software used in ages on one of the things I pulled out I've actually full in totally back in love with is the the suit Q foundation. Who yet? I. Yeah. Good. So everyone went bonkers over that. I remember Sally posted about it. Or wrote about in the guardian and everyone went bonkers and it sold out, and you couldn't get it. And there aren't enough shades and the one I go is the pay list, but it's not really usually quite Palin off of me. And I liked it. And I thought it was really lovely. But then I just it seemed like too much work. I felt like I was having to work with it too hard on. I just went back to my old favorites. And also, look it wasn't quite the right shade. I don't know. What's changed? I don't know. My skin definitely isn't DACA because it's winter. But I pulled it back out. And I started using it with my speaking of the devil with my fingers, rush and the Phoenix. God you got wash your hands or shrines go show. It's fine. It's so much prettier with fingers brush with a brush for whatever reason because it's quite heavy cream foundation. Yeah. It just builds up really quickly, and it sits in pause, and I feel like it just it looks a bit musky yet unless you work, really, really hard. If you use fingers with that foundation. It is beautiful it just melts it melts into skin on me. And that's only I mean, I'm sure it works great with brushes with some people maybe with the BTU under it would be better. But with me for fingers just does something to it that makes it globally and gorgeous. So I've been all up in that shit. And the other thing that be using a lot actually is one thing. That's disgusting. An old they don't make any more. That's how old is my should be ashamed. But en LA I'll good for nemo goons interviewed Molly Ronco on her podcast feeds.
"ronco" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"You got to run does who's really good, and it's a why won't to be into Ronco or he just paying his dues until next year when he can go to the clippers the Lakers and then you got the Sixers. Did you saw last night? Ben Simmons is unbelievable, but unless they get something for Marquel votes, they can't be the Celtics or Toronto. So those are the three best storylines I'm going to be. Watching this. I love LeBron he's a great player. He's a great man, but the Lakers don't have a good team. They're not contenders and we can't try to make them contenders they're going to be fun to watch. And I think the thing that I would want to guard against if the Lakers front office is that you get some success and then you may want to trade for somebody to help you make a playoff Bush or help your position for the playoffs. And I wouldn't do anything with that roster. I would. I would let those younger guys, you know, be around LeBron have them get to a point where they're not just watching him be LeBron where they're actually equal teammates with him and some of the older guys that they got. Let's see how they rub off. Hopefully, rub off in a positive way with the younger kids, but what would what would make, what would concern you the most about the Lakers this season? What kind of team are they? Are they going to let the let those young guys play or they go put those old guys out. There. That's why didn't understand because those old guys are not future. Ball coups Bah, Brandon Ingram that's their future. So I don't know what the Lakers are doing are they gonna try to groom those young guys and go forward with LeBron or they gonna play those old guys? I think that's what's going to be the most fascinating thing. I mean, I have no idea what the Lakers are doing. Are they young team or their old team? And I think that that's what I'm going to be watching for the most who's the first player to be traded off the Lakers. That's a great question. I don't know because I like Ingram, I like coups. I like ball, but like I say that would all them older guys on the bench. I just I don't know who's gonna get the play. Are they going to try to win some games with those older guys? Are they trying to be up for the future with those young guys? So like I say, I just don't know. Yeah. I'm wondering if these Lonzo ball going, can he fit in with them with with LeBron? And they're going to be up tempo and I love that, but you got a point guard who can't shoot, can't shoot free throws. So I just wonder, can you still have him play a big role for this too? Well, you know, it's interesting. We had a conversation last night with Ernie talking about the difference between more careful and Ben Simmons. I look at Bo closer to Ben Simmons than folks. He can't shoot, but he makes a big difference in the game. Like Ben Simmons can't shoot, but he like, but he makes he's a stud. He's a terrific player and he's not a good shooter. And I, I look at ball more and that like like bulls go have to score to help his team win. 'cause 'cause he's not a great passer. He's not a great definitive. He don't score. He's not gonna help the seventy Sixers ball because he's a terrific defender. He's a terrific passer. He can make a difference in the game. That's a great comparison. Like I, I like Clinton, I like Ben, some of the little bit more, but ball can make a difference in the.

Xiaomi Mi 8 announced: specs, release date, and pricing
"Right. Maybe we should have an option to turn it on or off on the title to. Okay, that'd be clever. Yeah, figure that out. That'd be great. All right. Ronco. Moving on. Xiaomi is in the running for making my new favorite phone. Possibly this Yami announced their latest flagship than me eight. And it's we've heard that we talked about this in the past couple of weeks about the rumors around the officials. Specs sport are a six point, two one inch, six point twenty one inch LED Samsung screen with the notch. 'cause you know, notch early right has got a twenty megapixel front facing camera, you know, for all all your front facing photo needs and not going to say the word the flow would it's got, hey, running Snapdragon eight forty, five of the twelve megapixel rear facing camera, which I find interesting that the front facing KOMO mega pixels in the rear facing, which is interesting. It's also the first phone, dual frequency GPS for more accurate location data and sells for around four hundred twenty one dollars. Converted to US dollars. But this gets it gets cooler though because the explorer dishes included in display fingerprint sensor that uses pressure sensitivity. Also three d face recognition, technology, and that's five hundred seventy seven dollars converted US dollars. And of course, there's an emoji alike. Function in it. The the me eight is is is cheaper and it's I use a staff dragging, seven, ten, and it's going to be five point eight inch display. And that's only two hundred eighty one dollars converted and all these release in China only info about other markets to come. But yeah, Victor you zeroed in on what I like the most about this one is the transparent back which is very similar to what we saw last week when we talked about the new HCC phones and the EU twelve had it as well. This goes one step a little step. Further in being transparent. You get to see a whole bunch of that chips and stuff like that in there. I like this trend of transparent backs. I tell you guys, I, this is my new favorite trend better than notches. Pay. I just want to point out real quick that that same vertical also mentions that the me aids scored. Not that this is the end all be all of how cameras phone cameras perform, but scored a one. Oh, five on DX. Oh, Mark, which is pretty dang. Hi. That out there, so cool. Yeah. Well, you know, we're seeing such great cameras in all these phones in the in the mid range now. So yeah, that's all those prices that Ron just lifted off listed off. They were all super well under six hundred dollars. Yeah, converted Jill that I know we'll keep the pair sin. Yeah, Shaami's got some really great hardware. Are you going to be playing around with this one when you get your hands hands on. Then finally, I'm so I've already reached out to friends in China to see if they can go into the pre sales and gets me a unit of the explorer Dacian. That's the one with transparent back at just because that is such a different thing. But it's also I think a testament to the goods engineering and product design that they're willing to show off. It's a bit like restaurants. If you go into one where you can see the kitchen, it means they have nothing to hide months the same as Shaami's explorer. Addition of the me eight chummy Android distribution. The the me you I or mealy is a very pleasant, Android distribution to us, and it's there now very close to Google in the sense that you can gets androids p preview on some of their devices. And so I wouldn't be surprised on seeing compatible Rome pumping. Up for the show-me at meet eight or mediate exploravision. We should also point out because the chat rooms can go nuts on this and I had missed this.
