"Rowe Price committed to helping investors closed the gap towards reaching their retirement goals. T. Rowe Price INVEST With CONFIDENCE It's Morning Edition on W. N Y C a Michael Hill New housing developments in the city require a certain amount of parking for cars nearby or on site. But a new development coming to Sunset Park Brooklyn, is requiring onside parking for working cyclists. W. N. Y c. Stephen Nessen reports, Sunset Park has been the site of fierce battles over new developments and gentrification. So when developers proposed a 14 story residential and commercial building at the site of a local Dunkin Donuts on Fourth Avenue The community board came up with a unique requirement. Secure bike parking for the delivery workers of the neighborhood. You're going to have 100 plus spaces above a subway station. To lock your bike lock and forget about it. That's Shabbas Stewart, founder and CEO of UNI, the company that makes eye catching, digitally connected bike parking pods. There's already one outside of Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal and Journal Square in Jersey City. Stuart was brought on board with the Sunset Park developers to think about how his secure bike system could work in a building that sits above a subway station and in the renderings. The plan is far from your typical bike parking in a dingy basement, the greenery to seethe wall, stop carefully through to see the skylight to see you know the screens that have the transit arrival times, right? Have the by Lingle's, You know displays. Stewart says 33% of the spots will be reserved for free for working cyclists in Sunset Park delivery workers. Particularly ones that rely on expensive $2000 e bikes for their jobs, risk theft or worse. In East Harlem, a delivery worker recently refused to give up his bike and was fatally shot. For Stuart. His bike storage is a way to protect vulnerable New Yorkers who may lose work if they lose their bike. For some, this is a matter of Can I feed my family? Can I send money back home? You know, I don't want to say that bike, parking his life and death. But this is going to be a facility that allows people to safeguard their livelihoods. It's a great idea, according to Glenn, DC, tourists an organizer with lost delivery steps. You need us, which advocates for working cyclists. But she says delivery workers need secure places to leave their bikes all over the five boroughs will be great. Her places like that and tired, silly, But this is not the case. The city currently has 56,000 parking spots for bikes, not nearly enough to meet the demand that grew during the pandemic. Loony founders about Stuart hopes future developments in the city will be required to include secure, accessible bike parking on site. Just like the one coming to Sunset Park. Stephen Nessen w N. Y C news It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm No. Well, King. Good morning. Now we have a look at the city of mar up in Yemen.

Mama's All Muslim. Me is the first year medical student in the city of Mara been northern Yemen. When we reach her by phone, she tells us in recent years, this was one of the safest places to be here. Send sabotaging my friends and I could go out. Enjoy places go to parks walk around together. These days, though the people of Ma robe terrified Yemen's Houthi rebels are advancing on the city on the front line is now just a few miles away, Miss Mata Hari. Come on, We hear the war. Houthi drones fly over us and more than once they've hit inside the city and in residential neighborhoods, women and Children have died. A little background on the war. The Houthi is captured Yemen's capital saner in 2015, Saudi Arabia, then intervened militarily because it was an ally of that government. And the reviews were backed by Saudis. Regional rival Iran. The U. S supported Saudis efforts with equipment and intelligence, Mara remained under government control. The Saudis poured money into the city, and it became a hub for their operations. Refugees took shelter there. The province even built a new soccer stadium and university. Now. Mattie Mohammed, a resident of married who works for the Center Center for Strategic Studies think tank, says the fact that the Houthi is now threatened. The city shows just how badly the US backed Saudi intervention in Yemen has gone silent. Well what, of course Sorry, has failed. The Houthis now control even more of Yemen and they have the upper hand. They now have drones that they used to attack inside Saudi Arabia. Some of those attacks is said to be with Iranian made weapons. Saudi Arabia says This highlights why it's important for it to be in the war in Yemen, trying to keep an Iranian backed group off its border. But Peter Salisbury, a senior Yemen and list of the International Crisis Group, says, if anything, the Saudi intervention in the war has only deepened Iran's involvement with Ruthie's in Yemen because they've been so successful. Who these air much more attractive proposition to Iran now than they were even six years ago. Salisbury says Saudi Arabia failed to unite an effective coalition against the Ruthie's. It's the hooches against this really fragmented, complex group off local actors who have kind of in premature of the government on them, he says, though, that the Houthis will still have trouble taking mad up. Many of those defending the area and then from local tribes who reject the Houthi is politics and different religious beliefs. This is gonna be a long, really messy fight, he says. For the Ruthie's, even just keeping up the fight from Arab is a victory. It demoralizes the Saudi backed factions and puts the Ruthie's in a stronger negotiating position for peace talks. President Biden has promised to use diplomacy to end the war in Yemen, but the battle for Morrow may still have a long way to go. Ruth Sherlock NPR NEWS Beirut It's morning edition from NPR News.

I took that meeting and after it i knew that i i know i had a partner and then i talk to you and mary and then i talked to different people in the industry and we actually did something a form of imitation if you will. We imitated the old texaco model. Right texaco theater. You know oil and natural gas paying for events at the kennedy center right. I mean that used to happen all of the time and it still does.

Is this idea that you can somehow arbitrage the importance of asking for the sale out of the art out of the equation out of the transaction. That's crazy there is no such thing as selling out when you're in the world of commercial television and i don't know what the world's gonna look like a few years from now but i do know that in the end. Chuck anything you and i enjoy doing is going to be paid for by somebody. It's either going to be a network or producer or the talent or a sponsor.

I'm involved in this company. I've got this product. I really like it. I don't want you to buy it. But i know you and i would love your opinion so just put it on your sink and use it for a couple of weeks and then i'll come back and collect it. You know and then you can tell me what you think and everybody. Of course said yeah. Alright so they hooked up to their faucet and forty people used forty of these things for about two weeks and then i went back to thank them and collect them all and only two of them gave me the unit back. Thirty eight people bought it. So i i made thirty dollars times sixty pretty quick and then i went back to the company. They sold me forty new ones and this time though they they sold them for. They don't for eighty dollars instead of one hundred twenty. Because that's the way it works. The more you buy from the company the the better price you get and you keep selling them for one hundred and eighty dollars and of course had an easy pay program in a convenience charge program so long story short. I didn't do anything that i was supposed to do. In terms of multilevel marketing. I did get a few people involved because i wound up making twenty or thirty grand which is pretty good for a twenty five year old kid in baltimore trying to make ends meet.

"That's that's stupid because you don't have one without the other and you think everything he said with great wisdom. Well i mean just duke. To what did you say to it. Duplicitous joke elicits duplicate. That's right well not necessarily duplicative. Means the ability to imitate were. Duplicate duplicitous is a form of mendacity or deception and perhaps that's why so much negativity is associated with with the with duplication. Because it sounds so close to a form of deception and ripping somebody off there you go ripping somebody which again is right at the guts of this story. I'm sure john thomson looking back on. It lost a lot of sleep because look he made a mistake. He wasn't really ripped off but he got tired. He got worn down and a salesman came out of nowhere and made him an offer. He couldn't refuse a guy who knew that no was just another word for yes that hadn't been said yet or however i put it in the story. Yeah yeah you put it a lot better in the story for the then again and in fairness it was written down at the time so you just try to recall it out of thin air So this brings me to the question that i believe you have been. I've seen it on your facebook page of you many many times and i would like you to comment on it thoroughly and fully at this moment and this question is a goes. Something like this mike. Why how did you become such a sell out. Yeah well. I mean the the grout is really the beginning of the answer to that question. I i started my my career As you know not not really as an actor or a or a host. Or whatever it is i do i i. I was a salesman. You know that's the first success. I ever had anything was was trying to sell something and The first job. I ever had on tv. The first steady gig was qvc. And of course that's the it's not the epitome of a sales job. It is in the eyes of many people the neigh- dear of a sales job amid bits. That it's a twenty four hour infomercial. Qvc is there's there's very little at least at the time you know. Nobody looked at qvc and thought. Wow yeah. that's what. I'm shooting for as a guy who wants to be on the tv. Only i could get there But to your point you know. Nobody knew who.

Yes so this is the first time we're doing this where we're not actually in the same room and so far i prefer it would certainly certainly does make for a more pleasant aroma. That's for sure anyway The first thing that that occurs to me about this episode the tile As as we said before it's always the tile and then followed by the grout book with chapter three and and the phillips screwdriver is that it's really the value of salesmanship the value of being a sales person. It's a hero story that the the hero of the story is is not. Just henry phillips. It's the as you said the The art of of the sale. And it's also a cautionary tale because john thompson. You know he. He did alright. I mean he was the innovator he had the vision he he did all of it. And in the andy took it in the neck you know and so you know there's so many stories about you know great innovators. There's so many stories about great businesses that empower those innovators but in the end. I'm always interested in the stories. Where there's there's one guy one woman you know underneath at all who who somehow made the whole thing happened simply by selling it. You know it's interesting i Years ago i read a book by art linson who was a famous producer and and he described pitching a movie and and they bought it on the spot and this was the pitch a day in the life of a car. Wash set to music. Richard pryor car. Wash right yes. Yeah yes and mr. T. mr t. Room mr t. Yeah art art. Linson said that and it just it goes to show you that. It's not enough to build the the best mouse trap. You need someone who knows how to sell that. That best mouse trap. No you know look. It's a point. I made to a lot in dirty jobs where innovation get all the credit. You know it's and every company today especially up here where i live northern california and of course silicon valley they all they all see themselves through the lens of their ability to innovate. But one of the things we try to dirty jobs was talking about the importance of imitation and nobody wants to brand themselves as the great imitator. But you know it's always there right. I mean you can give all the credit in the world to apple for coming up with the With the phone you know that we rely on. But it's the ability to make the same the same damn phone. You know a gazillion times over. That made them profitable and it was the ability to make the phillips screw and the phillips screwdriver a gazillion times over that made henry phillips rich. Reizo yeah you know. It's it's it's fun to look at people in companies in terms of how they see themselves and by and large innovation is always good and imitation. Were duplicative as always bad and of course..

I looked into the camera and said folks. I'm going to be honest with you. I have no idea what this thing is or how it works. Frankly i'm skeptical about healing power of infrared light. But if you have one of these objects call the eight hundred number on the screen. Ask for mardi. He'll put you on the air. Maybe you can tell me if it actually works ten seconds later. Something extraordinary happened. Someone called in a nice lady named carol explained exactly what the product did and told me. She was very satisfied with hers. She also told me. I had pretty is after that things got weird but more fun with each new product more viewers called in to explain what the gadget was out worked. These were not testimonials were tutorials. The viewers had taken pity on me and begun to do my job for me. Sales picked up. Marty woke up. Like i said things got fun years later while narrating a nature documentary i learned that young wolves when confronted with bigger stronger. Wolves will sometimes roll onto their backs exposed their bellies according to the narrator the submissive posture they adopt is away for weaker wolves to show. They're not a threat. According to my veterinarian. This is the same reason. My dog pees on me when i come home. He respects my authority. I'm not sure i buy that. In fact i'm pretty. Sure is just incontinent. But i do believe there's more than one way to sell something for me. The secret was to admit my vulnerability on camera and quit pretending that i knew more than i did to adopt my own submissive posture. If you.
"rowe" Discussed on The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe
"Mike having said all that. I hope you'll appreciate the irony of this episode self deprecating lee entitled micro is nothing but a sellout chapter three on the importance of better driving back in may nineteen thirty to a sixty one year. Old handyman named john thompson was tinkering in his garage when he had himself a eureka. Moment a self-centered idea that would virtually eliminate bad driving in those days. Bad driving was commonplace and us. Automakers weren't sure what it. But thompson believed the problem had less to do with bad drivers and more to do with the obstacles they encountered specifically recessed gullies intricate curves and flat horizontal planes. His idea would promote better driving by eliminating those are six months later he had a gleaming prototype in his garage ready for action six months after that patent number one million eighty thousand and eighty arrived in the us mail making him. The sole owner of the device that would virtually eliminate bad driving all he needed now with someone to mass produce it. John traveled all over the united states looking for a manufacturing partner. He visited dozens of factories and presented his prototype to countless engineers. The reaction was always the same great idea mister thompson but no thanks. After two years of no john grew discouraged he never tried to sell anything before. And the rejections were demoralizing. He made his last pitch in a conference room. Full of engineers at a manufacturing facility in oregon. Good morning mister thompson. We're intrigued by your design. The crucify form the conical helix. And the self centering aspect are most innovative. But please explain to us how such a thing can be mass produced. Well john said with a nervous laugh. I was hoping that's what you fellas could tell me. The engineers said nothing so john plunged in. He talked about the fundamental problem. The frequency with which drivers wound up getting stuck and the inevitable damage that followed when they continued to accelerate. Then he explained how his device would solve the problem by ejecting the driver before the moment of impact when he was the engineers.

Coronavirus Stimulus Talks Moving in Right Direction, Party Leaders Say
"This morning Democrats getting behind a scaled back stimulus toe. Try to restart talks for more. We're joined by Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller, professor Good to have you on with us this morning of morning where it seems like stimulus hopes. Spring eternal. But how much hope do you put in Speaker Pelosi in minority leader Schumer backing this bipartisan legislation that was worth about $900 billion it was put forward this week. Good morning, agent. Well, I mean, I think that they recognize that the you know the whole country is being hit really hard by this, but that they're the areas that are you know, traditional sport of Democrats are getting hit again really hard, and they had wanted direct aid for states and cities. They couldn't get it from Trump. They're not going to get from Senate Republicans. So basically someone like Durban and represents Illinois Big City like Chicago has to make a decision system Majority Minority Leader and them hard party and say, all right, we gotta get something you know if we you know, we especially unemployment, either top off or extension or some combination of those things on. I think the Democrats want to get what they can and not turn this into the first battle that Biden have the face once he's inaugurated. Is this about the pandemic, getting to the level that it's at now? Or is this a dose of political reality, given how the election turned out for the house, particularly with Democrats losing seats in November? I do think that the Democrats are not looking at a scenario that they hope to be looking at come January, which was a majority Democratic Senate and then picking up more seats in the house, where they could really, you know, right from ticket with Biden, so given that that's out the window. Even if the Democrats take one or two of US Georgia seats that's still not really a likely scenario you can control the Senate, barely. I have a very razor thin margin in the house now for the Democrats, So yeah, it's a political reality. But I think it's also about what they hope Biden can achieve What becomes president and taking one really big thing off the table before he starts that job, and I think that's a big incentive for them because then they could turn to things like infrastructure, which would also help the economy. Well, what's your sense of what President Biden could achieve. Given the realities of what Senate control is gonna look like either way, depending on how the Georgia run offs turned out, it's going to be a razor thin margin, no matter which way you slice it, and the president elect has said. Whatever gets past if something gets past, but during this lame duck session is going to be a down payment. For something much bigger. Well, right. I mean, this is what you know. Obama wanted a much bigger stimulus than he got in 2009 as well, and he had all three chambers. It's a very hard thing, particularly with it, you know, $3 trillion deficit and rising. So I mean, I just think one of the key factors. Both parties were looking at Tau look towards 2022. Because that's where both parties are looking right now, at least in the Congress side is that suburban voters were willing to split their ticket. And very noticeable voted Republican straight down the line voted for Joe Biden and maybe because it in like Trump. We don't know for sure, but they were willing to do that and then vote for Republicans in other offices, knowing that they're willing to do that means that they're up for Gramps, and I think that's the serve Achilles heel for the Republicans in blocking everything for Biden. I don't think they think they can do that and still safely hold onto the seats they want to defend in 2022, so that's where Biden and the Democrats have a bit of a bargaining advantage. In trying to get moderate proposal through that will help Cove it will help the economy will make suburban voters happy. I'm curious to get your take on how Biden has been starting to fill out his cabinet. Now. There are reports that he plans to announce his health team next week, and one of the names were hearing for health and human services. Secretary is someone that you're familiar with in your home state of Rhode Island Governor Gina Rowe Mondo That Gina Romano has done in an outstanding job in a very small state, but a very, very heavily densely populated state. So she's been dealing with sort of a big outbreak for a long time It subsided. Then it came back. She's been excellent communications and made some missteps very early on in terms of summer management with nursing homes, as other governors did, but generally speaking, has had very high approval ratings and has been thought to make this situation much better than it would have. Then, so she shown leadership in a very stressful time, And she's also communicated really well about why she's doing what she's doing. And I think any pick for HHS secretary has to be an excellent communicator because you have to basically explain the American people why we're doing what we're doing, and when we're doing it, and she's been doing that so consistently, and then it helps bring her state's not complete compliance. Bring her state along in a way that's been relatively successful. Are you surprised at all that, at least so far, we haven't heard any names of Democratic primary opponents on any of Biden's Cabinet shortlists. Well, he can't take. I mean, really. He just can't take anybody out of the Senate. Right? So that takes worn out that takes Sanders out. I know Sanders. People are very disappointed about that on. I think that's what Bernie was hoping for debris Sanders was hoping for, but you just can't take a Democrat out of the Senate. Even the Democratic government still can't do it right now, so that makes sense to me. I think people usually think people wanted him to get something he may still get something There's been talk about veterans affairs. But remember, you know, the Republicans have been relatively accepted to buy these choices so far, except for one choice. Neera Tanden for O M B. I think that's going to hit some some bumps along the way. Probably big bumps. But generally speaking, he wants a smooth Cabinet confirmations, You know process. So anybody who's super politicized more to the left of Biden for a top job. It's just probably out of the question, given the composition of the Senate. Only about 30 seconds left here. Do you think Attorney General Bar is on borrowed time after the voter fraud allegations from President Trump? I think during her borrow, looked ahead to the future and decided does he want to leave the Trump administration with any shred of credibility? And I think this move was designed to show that he wouldn't be try to leave with credibility and confirm the election knowing he's gonna leave anyway. And, you know, thinking about what's next so that he gets fired doesn't get fired. I think what he did was forward thinking for him. Not Miss Ellie and President Trump. Thank you Always could have you on with us. Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller with us this morning on
"Hello there and welcome to project business basics designed to give you the tools to make smarter financial decisions whether we will to learn something brand new or just wanna refresher on some basic. There is a place for everyone on our show. I'm jennifer and i'm your voice Today were win. Be talking about a concept that we've briefly mentioned before and that concept consists of what are known as the greeks to the greeks before but today we'll go a little bit more into detail about some of them. So first of all even are the greeks so the greeks are related to options and what most of them will tell. You is the rate of change of an options price. If you'll recall with an option we had a stock expiry date a strike price and whether the option was the call or and then the price that the option was trading at and a lot of people who trade or by sell options to then the price that the option can be bought or sold. That is very important. So these greeks than our would tell you as the trader or the person involved in the transaction. How much option price is going to move. So let's get started. So there are five different. Greeks were willing to talk about in. They're all called greeks because of their names the first one we're going to discuss his delta. In the greek language delta is symbolized by trying with delta delta tells you that for every one dollar increase in a stock's price the delta value. Then we'll tell you how much the price of an option will change. So let's say for example that we had a delta of fifty cents and we were using the stock t mobile as an example so right now t mobile stock is about one hundred twenty three dollars. And let's just say that a call option with a strike price of one hundred and thirty is currently priced at seventy six cents per contract. So we're told them that. Delta is fifty cents so then let's say that t mobile stock price sometime in the future and keeping all other factors constant so cetera paribas that sometime in the future t. Mobile stock price is one hundred and twenty four dollars so it moved up by exactly one dollar so that means that the one hundred and thirty strike price call option is now worth fifty cents more and we know that because of the delta value so seventy six cents plus fifty cents means that the one hundred and thirty strike price call option is now worth one dollar and twenty six cents so delta then tells us how in options price moves based on changes in the stock price. Now let's look at data so few remember with options options also have a time to kane them that the closer you get to expiry the either more or less valuable the option becomes depending on where the stock price is relative to the strike price of the option. So theta is symbolized with an or a circle with a horizontal line running right through the middle. So let's say that t mobile stock price is one hundred and twenty three dollars and the same situation. The one hundred and thirty strike price call. Option is currently worth seventy six cents for example sake. Let's say data is negative. Twenty five cents. So what does that mean will remember right now. T mobile stock price is one hundred and twenty three dollars so one day waiter exactly one day later will keep all other factors constant so t mobile stock price is still one hundred and twenty three dollars. The stock price didn't change so delta isn't involved so the only factor that has changed here is time the time to expiry and because we're now one day farther into the future data tells us that the price of the one hundred and thirty call option is going to go down by twenty five cents so seventy six cents minus twenty five cents means that the one hundred and thirty strike price call option. One day later is now worth fifty one cents. Okay now. let's look at wrote so rowe explained to us the relationship between interest rates and then the price of the option. So let's say right now. The current national interest rate set by the federal reserve is right around five percent in right now in reality. It's nowhere close to that but just for examples purpose will save for that right now. The interest rates are five percent and ruined. Use the same situation with t. mobile's one hundred and thirty strike. Price call option. That's worth right now. Seventy six cents then tells us that for every one percent increase in interest rates than. That's how much the option's value increases so for example row is twenty cents so interest rates go from five percent to five point. Oh five percent which is a one percent increase in. This is sometime in the future. Then row means that the one hundred and thirty strike price call option is going to be worth twenty cents. More so seventy six cents. Plus twenty cents means that the call option is now worth ninety six cents and that of course assumes that all other factors so time decay and then delta so that's the stock price that we talked about earlier stay constant or balanced out by each other.
Leftovers Are A Food Waste Problem
"Restaurants I shut down early in the pandemic American's rated grocery stores, they started cooking more at home and presumably generating more leftovers those leftovers can be a convenient future meal, but they've also got dark side. There's a tendency that you put an item on the plate that's a leftover those higher probability that you are not going to fully consume that item, and so he's probably GonNa go. To Waste Brian Rowe an applied economist at the Ohio State University he and his colleagues recently studied leftovers and food waste by tracking the eating habits of eighteen men and women in Baton Rouge. Louisiana, the participants tracked what they ate using an iphone APP and during the week-long study, the study subjects collectively piled twelve hundred different foods on their plates after analyzing what God eaten save or thrown. Away. The researchers found that leftovers were more likely to be picked data and not fully eaten, which is finding. We can all probably identify with, but they also observed that leftovers perhaps due to being older and less fresh directed diners attention to the other more novel items on their plate, which brings up an interesting possible strategy to get people to eat their veggies I, guess if you have an. Item that you don't normally eat as much of trying to get people eat peas perhaps surrounding it with leftovers is a way to make them focus of the newest item on the plate. The findings in the journal plus one overall Roe says one bigger lesson emerged on how to avoid scraping perfectly good food into the trash. So for us, the real take home here was choose a smaller meal. And you're less likely to generate leftovers and that's a good thing because leftovers all else equal tend to be wasted more often not that road doesn't have a few aspirational tupperware sitting around I'm guilty of this as well. We have stuff left over from last Thanksgiving sitting around our freezer and I know people who have moved with frozen items
Jonathan Edwards and the Call to Prayer
"Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel observed that the opposite of love is not hate it's indifference and hopelessness like so many of us feel right now in the midst of this perfect storm of pandemic and justice political unrest rioting can lead us to indifference after all. What can the typical person do about all this crazy stuff going on but Christians cannot succumb to hopelessness and we're never allowed to retreat into. Indifference to love is the very first and greatest commandment I god and then others we are Peter Rowe born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. We might not feel like that's true. But it is the Great Jonathan Edwards a leading theologian and perhaps America's Greatest Christian? Philosopher served in pastoral ministry in the Eighteenth Century during the height of the enlightenment and an essay he wrote. Entitled a call to United Extraordinary prayer a humble attempt. How's that? For a title Edwards argued that for the Christian to maintain their love for God and for others defined by whole ball avoiding despair regular prayer was essential. However, Edwards was clear that prayer does not bring hope to believers by guaranteeing that God will line up with us in our request. Rather prayer aligns the believers and our request to the Kingdom of. God and it does so in at least three ways first per- teachers are hearts and minds too long for God's Power and glory here's Edwards there is much in what we have seen of the glorious works of God's Power and grace to put us in mind of the yet greater things of this nature that he has spoken of in his word and to excite our longings and our hopes of their approach the. Of His presence that is knowing in believing the one true. God of the Universe is meant to excite us towards greater prayer for the continuance increase and greater extent up such blessings. Second prayers, the principal means by which Christ Kingdom advances again, here's Edwards so it is. God's will through his wonderful grace that the prayers of his saints should be one great and principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's. Kingdom in the world what an astounding thought. So often we ask but other than pray what can I do as if praying isn't doing something, but it is it's even effectual. Saint James says in his epistle and finally our prayers are not merely that God would save our nation but that he would pour out his spirit on our nation through the church. But that God would appear for his Church Road Edwards. And mercy to miserable men carry on his work in the land and in the world and fulfill the things he spoke of his word that his church has been. So long wishing and hoping and waiting for the restoration that we long for is not for some pass good old days as a country. But rather for a restoration to the purposes of God, We pray for God to heal our nation to revive. The church even as we long for and await the day when the Lord will return restoring his creation and making all things new these words of Edwards describe at least in part by a few thousand of us have been gathering virtually each of the last few weeks every Wednesday morning between now and November the fourth, which is the morning after the twenty twenty election for a time of national

WNBA players walk off court during national anthem
"Now we did see W N B a back yesterday. And what's that? What's the one headline that you're seeing this morning? Katie George, from WNBA being back Okay, so actually just Googled it just for Research purposes, right? Not that you were just going to ask me that so I just typed in in Google search WN Ba The 1st 3 headlines are WN. Ba players walk off Court during national anthem before season opener Next one W NBA players walk off court during during during what I'm going through 12345678 Headlines before I get to use a Today's WNBA returns. Liberty Storm Players leave court before Anthem. That's the story right? And that's why I said the lie will get halfway around the world before the pants or the truth that even has a chance to put its pants on. Correct and so yesterday, and by the way, one of these stories is ESPN Twitter account itself. So let's not say that it's everybody else. ESPN Twitter account ran. This is well to over four million views of a video. Of the WNBA doing a fantastic job on the say her name social awareness of Briana Taylor campaign. It was, It was well done. We've seen, you know players from all different sports. Talk about black lives matter. This is part of this right W NBA very strong in their beliefs and doing that. And so, the first thing I see Is all right. That happens. The national anthem is played and then WNBA players walk off. I'll be honest with you. I've been in favour of everything you guys know we've talked about this on and off the air. Like black lives matter has been an awesome strong campaign players kneeling during the anthem. We knew that it was never about the politics of it. It was it was about, you know, just bringing awareness. Like if you were educated enough. You knew that that was the case, right? Did this upset this upset me, right? And then I almost took to Twitter. Katie and I almost just put out the salvo like everybody does. Like, I can't believe this. I stand up for all this stuff. And you know what? Let me let me double check this. Let me make sure I'm understanding this correctly, and I could not find the actual video of this. And because I couldn't see if the anthem was actually being played, or this was before. Holly Rowe than tweets. How go No. This was the players leaving. They went back to the locker room. And then the national anthem was played on. Not unlike every single college football game that you and I both attended a lot of it. They come out for warm ups. They go back in the locker room national anthem is played. When they come out, they play a game. And yet this goes to show you how quick people are wanting to put in their political two cents, Ah lot of times and jump on a story when they haven't actually research Said Story. And it's just I thought it was a good lesson to learn for ESPN as well. Two on how to handle this any such a touchy subject right now. It was interesting. I got the alert right on my phone because I have the ESPN app and the alerts on loud and sew it deemed and I immediately went to it. And I saw you know the headline that they walk out during And I was like, Wow, that's pretty bold. And I wonder what the thought process was behind this because, like you, I jump Tio. It's one thing to kneel, and now we've all been educated on what the kneeling represents during the national anthem, and you see teammates put their their hands on their teammates, shoulders and it's a powerful moment, right? We saw that with MLB is opening day throughout the opening weekend. We've seen that with the MLS as well, A Zen ba scrimmages. But for you to walk out during the national anthem, I was like that's taking disrespect to another level, right? And so I was irritated when I read the headline, and then I went and watch the video. And I couldn't hear the national anthem being played. I could just see the women walking off the court and so I thought. I don't know if this is just bad quality and video like we don't have the sound, but I actually can't hear the anthem. But still, it's a bad look, Lynn, and maybe this was the WN Ba players saying, Hey, we need to like up the ante here. We need to make headlines because we want, you know, eyeballs on our league and we want to make a statement. That's where I thought it was. That was at what four o'clock? Three o'clock yesterday. But then, as I started researching more, I was like, Geez, I don't know if this is actually how it went down until Mike ate, texted us last night and said, Look, here's a correction and ESPN actually put out another alert and corrected itself, which I thought was big time. Because not everybody that I just read off all these headlines. Do you have done so or even updated their articles online right now to change the wording during two before walking off before the national anthem as compared to walking off during is a completely different optic, in my opinion, and so the fact that they walked off before, and this is their way. Of saying We're going to protest. I understand it, and I'm behind it. But to your point it was a great learning lesson because I like we've joked about people want to be outraged for the sake of being outraged. I was outraged yesterday unfairly because I don't have the facts. But neither did any news outlets either. And that to me was
"rowe" Discussed on The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe
"Hey guys it's Mike Rowe and this is the way I heard it. The only podcast for the curious mind with a short ATTENTION SPANS SAYS EPISODE. One fifty one. It's called. He was ready for his close up. He was ready for his close up which begs the question. Of course. Are you ready for yours. Well if you're an actor or an actress on the set of a major motion picture and the director asks you that question I hope for your sake. The answer is yes. Because if it's not well things get pretty ugly pretty quick because it's during the close ups that bad acting is most likely to rear its unmistakable and hideous head even good actors wind up sometimes looking like they don't know what they're doing in the close ups because it's so easy to forget. It's so easy to forget. If you don't know where the camera is just just how much the slightest gesture however subtle or nuanced will be expanded up there on the big screen.
