Erdogan calls on Turks to boycott French products

"Talks president recipe type Erdogan has called for a boycott on French goods as tensions between the two countries rise after President Emmanuel macron called for a French Islam. This follows the beheading of teacher in France after he showed his class caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published by the Satirical magazine. Charlie. Ever. Let's cross to Istanbul to join the journalist I login Yuck. Leeann also on the line is Philip Malia professor of French and European politics at University College London. Island let's start with you. Why is Turkey so upset? Well the magazine this week published a cover that depicts a caricature of president are due on and suggesting that he's a bit hypocritical about his religious beliefs. He's drinking a can of beer and he's lifting. The skirt of an Islamic garb. So that is Let us set off a firestorm among our close circle They're accusing them accusing the magazine of insulting and have actually sued the magazine for libel. It is a crime in Turkey publishable a punishable by up to four years in prison to insult the president. So that has been the latest twist. In this in the spat, but they've also putting a ban on French goods. That's correct that stems from President Macron's a recent pledges to. Ensure. That Islam does not affect the French way of life and French values describe that as a relaunch of the Crusades an attempt to Spread like cancer the Islamic phobia that already exists in Europe according to Don So there, but the dispute doesn't just start there between Turkey and France on they are at odds over a number of issues including the war in Libya and including the search for hydrocarbons in the eastern Mediterranean as well as the conflict in Nagorno-karabakh. Absolutely, and we'll come back to those in a moment. I just want to bring Felipe here to talk about what my chronic said. I mean he's saying that he's been misquoted. Yes I think that that's what he says and to to be fair in this Ongoing Saga Domestic Saga in France that is around the shaggy bill cartoons the latest of course, the latest terrorist attacked a couple of weeks ago. This teacher who was beheaded in France by terrorists the the trial shall you do are all taking place as we speak, but there's a lot of things going on and to be fair my call has always been has has never been the hotline in this. In this debate about the cartoons is a bit more of a solo rather than. So in a sense, it's been unsound aim to be to be branded suddenly the most Islamophobic person in fraud I don't think used to be fair but the issues for sure it's been misquoted in a sense i. think he said, yes that they were issues with Islam. which probably was a rather undiplomatic way of putting things to wealth stage. I think he's presented essentially the new bill on socal separatism, which is quite controversial in France and probably. Is, yes implicitly targets in the Muslim population in France but it's true that if French I'll probably surprised how at ten suddenly the sued relationships and and how the sort of tension has related between the two countries of late. To. Be Fair that the two men have been at loggerheads for a long time so it seems on the train side. For advil hand, it's almost protects the those at the story of the call tunes because inside the being as your guests. Until you have just said, there's been real geopolitical issues and disputes between the two countries for one now. Yes. Well, I wonder how much of this also has to do with Turkey's domestic politics I mean we know that there's a huge economic crisis is this a diversionary tactic? It certainly helps distract people from the issues surrounding the economy and our one has been accused of using any number of foreign problems to distract his voters This in particular might resonate because the fact that it's religion and this is something that people hold. So close to their hearts on think that people are filing necessarily know every twist and turn. Of the issue. But when they hear of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine, they might recall the images of the Prophet that the magazine published previously and that. Sir. Association. So when are two one talks about insulting Islam that's what comes to mind. Not The fact that published an image of political leader on the cover and so if bob he does have an impact. You know anything to get people's minds off of the fact that the jobless rate is soaring. The currency in Turkey has lost about forty percent of value this year against the dollar There's real economic pain here. So the certainly can help can help change the debate now.

FAA Admin logs some 737Max time

"So the administrator went flying. This is okay. I I like this story on a number of a levels. I don't know one of you may turn out to be the sinecure. All right but I like the story on a couple of so what? Mr Carteris. Yeah I know right I didn't want to name names, but that's what I figured about how I figured. It would play out So you know. The Boeing seven thirty-seven Max is still rounded but getting closer and closer to returning to the skies, the Francisco Franco all of Of Aircraft. and. And clearly I mean I'm no I'm not naive obviously this was a big publicity thing. All right. The the administrator of the FAA a conducted in evaluation flight. The pictures I showed should him in in less so? To the extent I'm going to be cynical about this. The one thing I'm questioning is the administrator the as really checked out in a seven thirty seven to fly the left I believe that's correct. Yeah. He he I think he other type he's a former airline pilot. Okay. Has a seven three typewriting. And if he does have a later model type rating for the seventy three. He's eligible the service. That airplane. So clearly, the FAA wants to demonstrate that the seven thirty seven is is safe and or you know and is is is deserving of of returning into flight service, and so they did a thing where now the story I have posted here is actually from before he said that he's going to do this thing but apparently it's been it's heads happened right on this this flight took place and because I think I've seen a story that talked about it after he and he got some Sim time before the well that's smart too that smart too. So his bio at FAA website says. A former Delta director global flight operations or Senior Vice President of flight operations for Delta Airlines. flew fluid line operations as as three twenty captain and previously flew the seven, two, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, five, seven, and seven, six seven. What that tells me as he never made captain on the seven three but he was a captain on the twenty Okay so So anyways, I like this story I think you know I mean it's it's smart marketing it's you know and it's kind of play pleasure I don't know what's the right word is but that we have an administrator who actually can fly airplanes, which is not always the case not always occurred and so so you know I I of got a little warm fuzzy about. starring. In. The best way I mean that. Going there. Okay well, we're will you go JEB. What do you think about this or dude? I was a pure pr stat. Of course it's a PR stunt, but you know I mean, it's a good pr stunned had done well, and and and it's not. You know I know it's a PR stunt, but it's not cynical PR stunt. They're trying to revive this airplane which. I don't disagree with that. and. There's so much to say but. Yeah one of the things that I caught and the aftermath. Is that. He still wouldn't sign off on the airplane. We're not quite ready yet. Well, then what was the purpose of the stunt? Timing may have been wrong, right? That's an interesting point. Now, fly it, fly the day before the day of you give it its walking papers give it. It's it's airworthiness certificate back you know Hey, I just flew the airplane is great here I'm signing the paperwork now. Yeah. Well, that kind of thing. So it looks a little phony to you know it's kind of like a well. I'm not sure which is looks phonier be honest weeping. So. David what do you think about the administrator flying the airplane? Well, I. Think it was Absolutely necessary I off. A long time ago in this saga has been going on for what? Eighteen months coming up on two years since the first crashes. That's true and. Longtime ago the administrators said that He would himself fly the airplane before it was returned to approve for return to service so From the perspective of promise made promise. Kept he fulfilled a promise? At a good thing. Was it a publicity stunt? Absolutely unless the guy was. There to do some data taking for the return to service flight tests but it was a good pr stunt. It it has some some value in that. Here's a guy who really knows the business knows his way around the cockpit. Getting some time in an airplane, it's had a troubled history. Did that, get it to the point of coming back to service no. There's still a lot that the FAA wants to get clear on and they are also working with other regulators from other countries who have grounded the airplane themselves Canada, the European Union. Brazil. There's a lot. The kind of go into this return to service enters a lot of stuff steak and I think the last thing any of these airworthiness authorities WanNa have happened is. Say Yep Yep we're good to go. You can start putting them back into service, which is problematic, and there's going to be a whole lot of pilots going to need to be brought up to speed in a recurrent training for them. Before that happens but. To have some little glitch come along. Right after you return it to service will doom this airplane forever I mean it's definitely going to be smooth no question Scott to be Smith I don't. Disagree with anything you, just said. except well, I would simply point out. that. I'm not sure that the return of the seven three is going to make or break any airlines It's GonNa make or break. Boeing. Yeah. But given the. Severe Downturn right in passenger demand over the last several months. and airlines have been doing fine making do with what they have. Be They've been retiring a number of aircraft or just parking them because the demand is not sufficient to keep them up and running it. All of a sudden. Now, we're going to have a glut of I don't know how many hundreds of of seven thirty seven Max is that are ready to go again. Big. Whoop. WHO's going to be flying.

The Birth of a Nation & The Origins of the NAACP

"Most early films consisted of one real. Lasted around fifteen minutes and cost a few hundred dollars to produce. All of that changed in Nineteen fifteen. When a film called the birth of a nation? A three hour long saga was released by Director D, W, griffith it instantly stood out as a technological and storytelling marvel. It also stood out as a monumental piece of blatantly racist propaganda. The birth of a nation fixes, certain story of the civil war and reconstruction in the minds of the American public, and that story is that black people were too lazy and ignorant to fully master the citizenship that they were offered by reconstruction. Birth of a nation really didn't have black people it. So these white people in black face portraying congressman who are obviously not ready for self-government. Portraying the idea of. Rapist and these all the stereotypes that are believed by many many Americans. The film was met with fierce resistance from African Americans particularly from a recently founded organization focused on the advancement of the race, the end up boys EP. One of the most important early initiatives of the N. Double ACP was. Against the birth of a nation, they generated a lot of interest by protesting FM and drew in a great deal of support from African Americans. Despite its best efforts, the NWC couldn't persuade censorship boards or theaters. To limit the film's reach. But the young organization gained national prominence because of this campaign. That year membership almost doubled. And that number would continue to grow as it melted the fight against Jim Crow. Those activists descended at the time. Those dissenting voices were always there. They were there during the darkest periods of American history and remembering that tradition to me is almost more important than remembering the failures and the losses and the terrorism the black people faced.

The Latest On municipal Elections

"A little bit about municipal elections of course in Brazil What what what's that? Give us give us the the big picture festival well, I voted a big deal because every single one of five, thousand, five, hundred. Seventy Brazilian cities will be voting for mayors and for councillors as well. So it's a big election, and of course, it's always as it happens to other countries it's a preview of the two, thousand, twenty, two presidential elections. So be interesting to see what's going to be the role of both sonar because of the beginning just a few months ago said, he's not going to get involved but now we're seeing that he's supporting a few of the candidates, but the thing is, of course, there's You know there's there's thirty or forty percent of the electorate that you know would vote for Bush scenario candidate but he's extremely toxic as well. the order. The same amount of number would never vote for a candidate supported by both sonar. Again I think it's going to be a very tough divisive election and again, Workers Party used to be such a strong political party Brazilian losing the appeal order. centre-left parties are starting to kind of gain more traction instead of the workers spiders. So that's an interesting thing about this election as well, and what do the polls say I mean just ready to? An association whether perceived or real with both narrow can be a boost or it can be a problem depending on where in the political spectrum you are. Do we know what the polls tell us and there's another interesting things on there in terms of the sorts of characters who are standing for action a big increase in number of military personnel. Explain also that we've talked about before absolutely and again this increasing military personnel of course, it comes more from the right-wing part but even the left they have some candidates and even in their names when people are voting is like major tone. Exactly. Or you know they they actually add they're tied to pseudo name. So people know exactly what they used to do but you know I was talking about another classic example here's some Paul the first South who someone is, is a hat on the polls he's supported by scenario is a TV presenters will kind of a populist even though he's ahead I'm not sure if he's actually going to win because there's he has a vast number of people that will never vote for him just because of his association with both Sonar, and in Rio you know we're loosing the blue. Shoe, quite a lot about this. Myself Valleys the current mayor and a former gospel singer as well. Again, he only have like forty percent of the polls. He didn't do a very good administration from. What I hear from people living there as well but he's the candidates have been supported by both sonar. I wonder if we're that can tell us a bit more house the reaction. Rio above that listen to I was going to bring you speak about Venezuela in a second but just on this point about it's both scenario I mean is he he sort of overshadow everything? Is it one of those things being Vanessa mentioned if we look at Rio these races, they're also have proxies for people's view about both in our that's certainly what it seems like sometimes looking from the outside. Yes. But also particularly that the main issue in. The minute always been it's totally economic, right so aside from all these elections and everything, it's really which parties are willing to offer some sort of boost to to the people living there and what we have. She had underneath the Bulls Nar administration in recent months, which allows cariocas from, which is, of course, this this payout to to the most deprived in the population, which is and so will very much depend on whether that sort of extended over the next few months to tidy through the election or not I. Think I think economic issue is a big thing. Here we go. There's some interesting aspects. Of this election as well so far we had the record number of candidates thirty, four percent of all the candidates are women. That's a record that doesn't mean that they will be elected sometimes they come from the smaller political parties as well, and for the first time we have candidates, they are either black or mixed race then white, that's a that's a first So even though we are under the administration that probably don't care that much about quotas or this kind of things but you know you see a little bit of change in Brazil perhaps the candidates are beginning to start to look like. The population in general. So that's an interesting aspect of this election and certainly something to welcome just briefly Fernando. Last point on. This is one of these areas where it would be a mistake to read too much into what happens in the municipal elections where we look ahead to the next general election or actually is quite a good indicator of which way the political winds on a national level also blowing I think we should definitely pay attention to this election in two thousand sixteen. We saw the rise of the right and kind of you could kind of understand Wassenaar was elected two years after. Okay interesting. Stuff listen. Let's cross back to you and I I mentioned Venezuela let's talk about this. You were living there I think some some years ago, but there's this really complex interesting legal battle that also comes right here to to London town as well. Tell us a bit more about this. Yes. So don't remind listeners the Maduro government launched legal action against the Bank of England earlier this year to try and force the Bank to release gold that the country has stored in the bank sports and England's quartered appeal decision that was made earlier this week on Monday isn't as definitive, some of the headlines had suggested. And they're sort of several layers to this. But essentially, the appeals court overturned a judgment which said that the UK had recognized opposition leader one guy do as Venezuela's rightful president. So in other words that local ruling is a victory for Maduro essentially sidelining any perceived power that Guido had as Venezuela's rightful president but Monday's decision actually means that this whole I mean it's a lot of money is a one billion. Dollars equivalent in gold. It will go back to the High Court in England and it will be up to a higher court to determine more definitively which of these two rival leaders is in charge in Venezuela and therefore he has control over the shiny gold bars which obviously tend to grab the column inches but I guess into this is a case where. This case speaks to a bigger picture dozen and it does also reflect this ongoing, very divisive political battle in in. Caracas. Can you just tell us what is the latest there what? What's the situation? Is it one of these things where again Everything that flows politically flows out of the economic strife, the country still during. Quite right I mean reading the actual ruling it disorders show unpick really the mess that Venezuela and the international community has got itself into with this to President Saga that's been going on since January twenty nineteen and the upstate new nothing the people who've been living there I mean in abject poverty fleeing the country in the millions and that has no proper healthcare system i. Mean when I was living back in twenty seventeen lesson learned today to do with this highly contagious virus. So the situation is critical as I say, having having an uncleared dramatic stance, own issues like the Golden, the Bank of England, which mode no doubt will go on for months only wasn't the the situation inside the country and creates stalemate when nothing moves on or improves. Tricky Times still ahead listen to it was good to hear from you, and if you're here in studio thank you. That's Markle's if you had noticed and Lucinda Elliott

Boeing 737 MAX Return Nears

"You've been writing about the Max since it was grounded. Last March it's really looks like it's coming back. Doesn't it? It looks like it's close the and we said this. Several times in the past now coming up nineteen months since the grounding. but the this past week the FAA released the latest draft. Minimum Training Standards so the Flight Standardization Borg reports called. And those are going to set the baseline from training around the world. It's a big deal because in addition to the software and flight control computer and flight control computer software in M CASS. UPDATES Boeing has been required to do their a huge emphasis over the last call it twelve months on improved training, and if you look at the current Flight Standardization Board report and the draft report that was put out in March two, thousand nineteen. So at or a actually April two, thousand eighteen. So after the second accident, but well into Boeing's ever cast fix effort that started after the first accident October two thousand eighteen huge difference in emphasis on what pilots Max pilots are going to be required to. They're going to be required to have simulator training, which now isn't a surprise, but that was not never been part of the transition package before. They're also going to be required to practice a lot of. Normal procedures both review them in run through them in the simulator. Some too big emphasis areas on. That at are both on the Max, but also on broader seven, thirty, seven training as well as of this moment, the extra training doesn't apply to anything but Max pilots, but it's it's a safe bet that seven thirty, seven N. G. Train is going to get some of these non normal procedures to like runaway stabilize. So Sean I remember last year we were writing that Boeing got this would be back in service in a matter of a few months and it's just dragged on and on and on. I mean did the seven three seven Max get caught up in politics. I don't think it caught up got caught up in politics in back when it was grounded. The FAA said that the M cash off where is being reworked and they expected that of Donald April two, thousand nineteen what happened was that? The FAA some industry pilots and other regulators began to take a deeper look at some of the issues beyond the M. cast software. The software in many ways was easiest fix here but it somebody additional procedures and lack of understanding that seven thirty seven pilots had on things like the runaway. Stabiliser checklist talked about. They got deeper in some of the human factors and also deeper into the system safety analysis that Boeing did on seven thirty seven Max really on the whole on the on the whole program. Those things. uncovered issues that the regulators. FASD awesome wanted fixed and they would go back to Boeing and ask for more validation and that that caused the process to be dragged out the training in human factors to me. It's been a huge aspect to this that that is not getting I. Don't think it's getting proper attention. We're certainly trying to give it proper attention. But bridging the gap between what the pilots understand and what the manufacturers think they need to understand what the regulators make sure they understand this. This whole saga has demonstrated huge gap there in trauma to close that gap has taken up on a lot in the last at least twelve months. So. What's your ballpark guest now went wendy estimate that it will be certified to fly again, and then how long does it take airplanes airlines to put the airplanes back in service two big things that have to happen before the recertification approval start to come number one, the FASD finalize airworthiness directive and list everything that has to be done to the maximum. That software updates that some wiring changes that had nothing to do with the accidents, but that were required to bring them into compliance That's number one, number two, the finalization of this, the S. report comments on that on in early November second to data. So it's going to be at least a couple of three weeks after that. So you could see it recently in November from the FAA barring anything odd I, would say December is is very good. Bet Jasa says, it's GONNA come shortly after that other regulators as well. There will be some outliers summer beer everybody's looking at China wintering. If they're going to require our, they're gonNA take at least a deeper look on their own at some of these. For Airlines GonNa take them at least a month or two after the approvals at least I, would be surprised if you see a max in Revenue Service in two thousand twenty.

"Let's start with a look at a European capital that's often overlooked by the beach crowd who enjoy Croatia's crystal clear coastline. But miss out on the scene in its capital city. It has a distinctively modern take on old world charm and it's just a few hours inland. To tell us about saga we're joined now by local guide Darya goateed. She's joined by Ben Curtis who writes about the Balkan regions elaborate history and thinks that Croatia's best period may be now Darya in Ben Welcome my pleasure. Same. Thank you for having. US Doria. You're from Zagreb your guide in Zagreb, a lot of Americans no Dubrovnik. Venice and a lot of Americans know the Anna Zagreb is right there in the middle. What should we know about Zagreb? Nanna. Saga is I would say the mix of. All these big capitals around and all these much better known cities around from historical perspective It was influenced by different cities and countries. So we have a little bit of all of that. What's an example? How is it a little bit of? How is it a little bit of Italy says it a little bit of the Slavic World So? obas part of the hops Burke monarchy later austro-hungary for few hundred. Years. And then architecture in town is very much what we would call out through nor Central European. So the mixture of Hungarian hungarian-austrian. We don't have much Dubrovnik textures that. Is Zog. Is completely different about the cuisine that scene is also very influenced by Austria but not only that we do eat struggles and. A lot of meat and potatoes and then on the other hand we also eat. A lot of Pasta beat some. We are very sensitive on coughing, and then we also have the Turkish influence because arguable also for few centuries, just about forty, five, fifty miles Sir north from the Ottoman Empire boarder okay. It's a crossroads release across through the s the Ben Curtis here in American who has a fascination and a deep interest in this part of Europe how would you say Zagreb is unique Zagreb is unique for being this gem of a central European capital. So everybody can measure saying they know Budapest, Vienna, they know Prague, but here's this. Gym of a historical city that hardly any American visits right and even though Zagreb stars rising on the Tourism Front these days but you can go there and it's not gonna be jammed with busloads of tourists from all over the place you're not gonNA hear a lot of other North American accents and you're going to be able to experience the city where the fabric of locals you're going to be sitting in a cafe with mostly other people from Zagreb, and that's great and it's hard to find that in Dubrovnik are in Vienna these days a year. Exactly. So if you had two nights in in one Danes, is there enough to keep you busy. Yeah. For sure I think, what would you do if you're gonNA show me around for a day the it's a great kind of one day stop if you're coming in and out for some of the coast. So Zagreb surprisingly has some of I think are the best museums of its kind in Europe now they're quirky right? You don't. Go desire grab for the Louvre or something like that. But you go to Zagreb for these unusual small museums like the Museum of naive art, which is great sort of not formally trained perhaps painters but really characteristic art with peasant themes. The famous one which is kind of made headlines around the world is a museum of broken relationships which is filled with these stories of couples who have broken up the objects that they have Meant something to them and they've given it this museum and so it's just a really interesting kind of poignant sometimes hilarious trip through people's relationships. So when we think of this naive art, I love this idea because you go to most art galleries in Europe Bennett, the opposite of naive arted this refined fully embraced high-society art but naive art is by definition just unschooled hasn't Sir Working People that just had a passion for painting. Exactly but are often very, very talented even if they didn't train at the academy or something like that but they're expressing the lives and cultures and artistic visions of people from the rural areas and it's genius really an undiscovered genius that happen to come out of the farm community or something absolutely. I love that museum by the way that that's really one of the unique things in Europe and it is in the capital of Croatia Zagreb.

Debate commission promises changes after chaotic first face-off

"Last night's chaotic presidential debate, some changes coming for the next showdown between President Trump and Joe Biden. You sure there's nothing smart about you, Jo? There were taunts and talking over insults and interruptions. The president liked it. I thought the debate glass that was great. We've gotten tremendous reviews on it. Biden called the president's performance a national embarrassment. And when they meet again, I hope we're able to get a chance to actually Answer the questions. The commission on presidential Debates is now promising what it calls additional structure to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues. Even before that announcement, Biden said he hoped something would change but didn't know if it would matter to the president. God only knows what he'll do. Saga ARM agony.

"saga" Discussed on The Highwire with Del Bigtree

"I want to get into the covid Nineteen Vaccine Donald trump sat down with Mark Levin this week and he had something very interesting to say. that. I WanNa talk about this. We have many companies doing it great companies Johnson Johnson Pfizer. MODERNA. We have many companies doing it and. Almost all of them having so far seemingly very good. Results they're in phase three trial that means a right at the end of the process. Really looking good and could be really early and so all of a sudden instead of saying, wow, this is great news. We're GONNA have. The vaccine early. This saying Oh, the vaccines coming out too soon, it's going to be unsafe. It's going to be all of these things. Has Nothing to do with the safety he's great. Companies are going to put themselves on the line they would have tremendous liability. Obviously president trump has got that wrong. You know I hate the term fact checker but I've got to be honest on this when he says that they would have tremendous liability. Obviously they're not these manufacturers you know Madonna and Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson aren't going to rush back scene out where they would have tremendous liability. You're right Mr President, your right. They wouldn't if they had liability which is why in the middle of Warp speed I would really appreciate it. If you would put liability back on this industry, how can we trust any product by companies that have paid out hundreds of billions of dollars for murdering innocent? People how they murdered them by lying about safety whether it was Johnson and Johnson with talcum powder or Johnson and Johnson and the sackler family with Oxycontin or Merck and viaducts, or I could go on and on and on. But those were drugs and we could sue MR president we cannot sue they are not liable and that as a serious problem and it the nine, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, six wasn't bad enough. Let me bring your attention Mr President to the PREP ACT which I hope you're aware of, but this is it this even the supersedes the eighty-sixth public readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act the public reading this an emergency. Preparedness Act Prep authorizes the Secretary of Department of Health and Human Services to a declaration that provides immunity from liability. For claims of loss caused the rising out of relating to or resulting from administration or use of countermeasures to diseases, threats, and conditions determined by the secretary to constitute a president or credible risk of future public health emergency. It titles individuals involved in the development manufacturer testing distribution administration, and use of such countermeasures meaning vaccines folks a tax prep back. Declaration is specifically for the purpose of providing immunity from liability and is different from and not dependent on other emergency declarations. This is problematic. This is extremely problematic and Astra Zeneca was even bragging about this just a few weeks ago in many ways you know reported as having said, this is astros elegant to be exempt from. Backseat liability claims in most countries they went on to say, this is a unique situation where we as a company simply cannot take the risk. If in four years, the back scene is showing side Effects Rude Daba, a member of Astra. Senior executive team told Reuters what have been four years people start dropping like flies from immune enhancement that we thought. We'd overcome what if they have multiple sclerosis would they die like cancer like they did the polio vaccine when we asked Bentley Simian, retrovirus contaminating everybody, we can't be held liable for that and so Mr President while they're not liable, I would really like you to not use it as one of the arguments on why we should be happy about warp speed. But let's talk about Astrazeneca last week reported that they did have an injury it's not four years down the road is not four months down the road and just happened days into their own trials Zenica suspense leading kkob in Nineteen back seen trials after a participants illness. Of course, I'm talking about the transverse by elitest case that we just discovered. It was reported last week. But there is more information now coming out I want to get into that. It doesn't end there. Right? One of the things that I was curious about last week was the discussion about this transverse biologist case I even tweeted out get ready in about a week. They will tell you that this didn't happen. So you understand Francis my alliance this is a photo of it. You see that little lesion right there in the darker, the Dark Gray Strip in the spinal column that little lesion that's transverse by elitest it can be life threatening it can be paralyzing permanently oftentimes temporary, but it tends to be on set very quickly. It happens very quickly upon a reaction to a backseat. It also can happen by the way from natural virus, but we were told last week that transverse. This. was diagnosed in this, but it was the only case Oh by the way there was a multiple sclerosis case that we didn't tell you about about back in July just so you can see fairly similar on the right there. Again, you're seeing swelling in the spinal cord area that's multiple sclerosis. So you can see that these are very similar. Of course, multiple sclerosis can go on and have lesions in the brain and lead to many many problems for a lot of people. But I WANNA talk about New York. Times article came out. They got more in depth I'm GonNa read a bunch of this. In fact, I could have read the whole thing out loud again, just go type in I can right now into your comments or tweet US I mean text us I can't a three to two and you can get this whole article but let's read through it together. Shall We take this? Experts have been particularly concerned about Astrazeneca's vaccine trials which began in April in Britain because of the company's refusal to provide details about serious neurological illnesses in two participants both women who received experimental vaccine in Britain those cases spur the company to halt its trial twice the second time earlier this month, the company has released beauty details about.

The Suitcase Murder

"My name is Meghan Sacks criminologist at Fairleigh Dickinson University. In simplest terms criminology is the scientific study of what causes crime and how the criminal justice system. Response. To crime. Ridden about twenty, five true crime books over the years and I think many maguire is perhaps one of the most interesting ones and baffling. This is Melanie. McGuire arrested today minutes after dropping offer children in daycare. Melanie, McGuire a New Jersey nurse was accused of killing her husband cutting up his body and throwing it into the Chesapeake Bay. In two thousand, seven, what was being called? The suitcase murder trial was generating an enormous amount of media attention, not just in New Jersey, but all across the country three bazaar discoveries, three separate suitcases, all containing human remains the woman who is on trial for her very life. She says the real truth behind the crime has never been revealed with no history of violence and no apparent motive for murder. Could she really have done it? She was this beautiful young nurse and they were the seemingly normal middle class couple and the murder happened in such a grisly way. The idea that this beautiful nurse could have actually killed her husband and then cut him up is just incredible. Of course, they were salacious aspects. Maguire is a nurse and prosecutors say she had an affair with a doctor. She didn't fit the profile I. Guess of a murderer over the years and colleagues of ours have come to me and said, you know Melanie McGuire proclaims her innocence and to tell her story I started thinking Oh maybe there is a little more to this case than what you see on the surface and then the idea podcast came up and I was all in on direct appeal examined the murder conviction of Melanie, McGuire him following a highly publicized trial looking at the evidence that was presented and the evidence that may have seemed insignificant at the time before own conclusion about Melanie's guilt. We hear at ABC have our own history with the Melanie. McGuire case back in two thousand, seven ABC's Cynthia McFadden had the first on camera interview at the mother of two on trial for murdering her husband. Who was the Melanie? McGuire you hope to jury. knows. The one who tried to take care of everybody. Who didn't make the smartest decisions but admitted to those mistakes? To the people she trusted most. But. Did Not admit what what she's acute stuff. I have been incarcerated for twelve and a half going on thirteen years now. Do. You still insist that you're innocent. Absolutely. You're sitting here. A wrongfully convicted person. Correct. Absolutely and what have those years spend like? I tell people. It's not as bad as you think in some ways and it's so much worse than I could ever articulate in others. After all these years I. Still feel her I still feel bothered. I still feel like how could somebody think? That I did that. This whole saga begins on May. Fifth two thousand four with an odd discovery in Virginia Beach. Early morning a couple of fishermen and the kids are out on a boat by the Chesapeake Bay. Me and my friend Don Connors was going to go out fishing and we both had days off D. or Don. We Call Them D. said, keep his kids out of school. We're GONNA take him fishing. Everybody was excited. We went right out this bridge here. and to keep on going you run right in the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. In the Chesapeake Bay Bridge tunnel is seventeen and a half miles long. It really is quite astonishing. It connects the eastern shore of Virginia to Virginia Beach has two tunnels, two shipping channels, and then once you get on the other side, you go North into Maryland Delaware New Jersey.

Ava Movie Review : Jessica Chastain powers this moderately thrilling assassin saga

"I'm Madeleine brand. I am ready to review some films of two of my favorite favorite critics and two of my favorite humans all time alongside early and Dave White film critics for the rap and host of the podcast, Linoleum knife. How you guys Hello. All right. Let's talk first about Eva. Jessica Chastain stars as international assassin, but a job goes wrong. Here is some of the trailer. I know you like Eva. She's a liability. No, she's best to breathe. I recruited her trainers talking She's always been jukes favor, but she's a loose cannon and dangerous of the organization. Alonzo. What did you think so? Yeah, this is, you know, typical international assassin and runs afoul of the corporation. And of course, she must be closed. Um, why is it that only the female international assassins also have family issues, whereas the male international assassins were always completely cut off from their own feelings and from their own families of their own pasts and all that stuff. Really The most interesting stuff about Eva is that a bow, played by Jessica Chastain comes home to Boston, where she has to confront her fractured relationships with her sister, played by just Wexler and her mother, played by Gina Davis. On Of course, Gina Davis was an international female assassin in the long kiss. Good night, so that's a nice little Bow on this, and the scenes between Gina Davis and Jessica Chastain are so crackling in a Confrontational, dysfunctional family cannot away that you kind of wish this had been a confrontational, dysfunctional family movie and not international Super Assasin movie. But I mean, it's a lot of that movie is has been made. It's called What ever happened to Baby Jane? Good points, But I mean, you know the The pieces in this are not bad, like the actual international Super assassin scenes are pretty well done. There's some pretty good action sequences. Maybe Not in like an atomic blonde kind of way. But still like when. When Jessica Chastain gets into a scrap with Colin Farrell or, you know, I mean, John Malkovich even gets into some violence in this movie. Those scenes are kind of fun, but then you gotta shift gears into Ava and her addictions and her family stuff, and it's like The movie is in all the lanes and it doesn't really ever quite nail any of them. So I maybe wish they had. They had taken off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house, you know, either lose one of reds here, Dave. Moments of cool, stabbing and kicking. Alleviating boredom. Unfortunately, they missed this golden opportunity to allow Gina Davis To be revealed. To still be her long kiss Goodnight character, passing the mantle of super assassin. Down to her daughter that they did They do this. They did not do this. Unfortunately, if you're going to make a movie with a plot, as wrote, and by the numbers as this You got to juice it up somehow, You know, it's not. It's not enough that the Jessica Chastain isn't a long red gown. You know, stabbing and kicking and shooting. Okay,

Stolen Moments With Harold Sherrick

"Recoup here on the imbalance history of rock and roll Marcus how you doing not bad. How about yourself today? Well I'm doing good but I'm a little nervous because we're trying something different. Today we're going to combine an episode of five favorites with a studio gas well, not in the studio on zoom? Resuming. With Harold Cherokee, he's got a great book called stolen moments. How many years Herald were in La is a seem to time I was born in La so in La for sixty three years. Only been back here for three years moved back here three years ago. where. Were you living before? While I was living in the San Fernando Valley in Sherman Oaks. Dan Is area that you. which is just just over the hill to Hollywood, which is about fifteen minutes from where I live great place to be mad that close you know was wonderful. As a kid growing up there, where did you live and how did you first start plugging into the whole strip in the scene and everything that was going on there? I was born in L. A. Downtown La but then as a kid. Moved to Glendale California which is just right. Next door. They're nice sleepy little town and I basically grew up there went to high school there the whole bit and was there up until like nine hundred ninety and that I but I moved to the valley when I got married a second time and Just. been there all my life and. I was well connected when I was a kid started going to concerts when I was twelve. I concert was the Beatles. Hollywood ball no. That was all I. I went to the last la which was August. Twenty nineteen, sixty six and that was the Beatles Esta left. Day before the last one, which was candlestick. But that was my first concert. That right in the second row air right there. Six dollars? Ticket dollars can you actually hear the Beatles because? I HAVE THEM IN DC and said, the girls were screaming so loud that she couldn't hear the Beatles from where she was sitting in the stadium Yakking you know here and there it wasn't obviously crystal clear. You did have screamed grounding out of most of the time, but you could hear your somewhat mind blown dude, that's all I wanNA say or I'll deal mind-blowing. Well, that'll be a great entry into rock and roll life for anyone. And Talk to us a little bit about the book you were taking pictures around the L. A. Seen for quite a number of years in have some stunning captures in this book in all, it was going to concerts as a kid I used to play around with little Brownie camera when I was nine and ten years old and so eventually when I was able to graduate up to actually getting a decent camera which was. Like nineteen, Seventy, eight, seventy, nine, eighty at one. I really started pushing myself into the into the scene as best I could. It's all proven yourself in the beginning paying your dues you know you're not getting paid when you start out, it wasn't the solely for the money was the for the love of the whole thing. I always had a visual of capturing a great moment. You know whether it was in concert or meeting. Somebody in a hotel room that's what I started doing. Did you build a black and white dark room in your house? My father had a black and white dark room. Yeah. I didn't my house. I had a friend that helped me out a lot a couple of friends that end our rooms and I would bring my films as soon as I shot it the next morning I was there almost at the crack of dawn. We gotta get this process you know right away. That's awesome. You know would do the proof sheets and then big out of print I'd have sometimes I'd have to send something out right away most of the time in the beginning, it was just doing it and getting it done. So I could actually look at what I shot. That's all part of the beginning anyway trial and error is how you learn from a day to day thing you know 'cause I'm self taught I didn't go to school for it and I just I always wanted to do that. You know just take pictures because my father. Was, a newspaper man you were for hearst for the Herald, examiner in La A., and that's how I of got into it. When I was a kid was he would always take me down to the office I used to look at all the photos and the photo room with saga offers, and then I go to the pressroom and watch the paper roll off the presses at night with the greatest greatest experience you know the newspaper game sets how I got into want shoot black and white for falls. What was the first concert? You Shot Elvis Presley Whoa. Seventy six year before he died he he never he didn't come to L. A. and seventy-six closes. He came Long Beach Arena and I had tickets through a friend who is very well connected into Elvis and getting good tickets. So we had some really good seats and that time I think I'd be twenty five bucks to see John a few pictures. They didn't really come out that well. So that's why nothing has really been seen on that because I nothing came out that good at all.

Trumps TikTok Trouble Continues

"It's now been about a week since Oracle announced that they would be saving Tiktok from being banned in the United States but it's kind of unclear what's actually happening right now to joining me to cut through the noise is senior reporter, Shrink Afar history hate any. So what exactly is going on I'm a little confused. Yeah I don't blame you. There's been a lot of twists and turns in this saga, but the latest is that Oracle his put forward offer. To take over part of TIKTOK. But not the majority of it of its US operations and the deal that Oracle proposed. By Dan's which is tiktok Chinese. Parent Company would still retain eighty percent ownership optic talk you us and the rest would be you know what Oracle at Walmart in partnership would negotiate ship five. Wait a minute. So by Dance Aka, a Chinese entity. Is still in charge of tiktok under the deal that Oracle Walmart proposed. Yes, which is a problem for trump. So while he initially said, he supported the deal he later reversed his position again, and if you remember from the beginning, he was saying I want nothing other than a full sail than he seemed open to lessen a full sail, and now we're back to where we started, which is trump saying that he won't accept anything other than hundred percent of Tiktok us being owned by Americans and not a Chinese company. So. Is there still a sense that this could fall through or does it feel like this now has trump's approval and science still delivered oh no. This definitely is at risk of falling through now I think that initially when trump blessed the steel there was you know probably people at tiktok breathe a sigh of relief but now that trump has again reversed his decision. It's unclear what's going to happen it very well could be this deal does not happen, and that's because the problems that trump has cited for national security haven't necessarily been appeased. Is that right? That's right and it's not just trump saying that I mean others have said you know even people who are not necessarily very partisan which sort of outside national security experts law professors. Sources I've spoken with say that yeah look if what you're worried about is national security and the Chinese government influencing tiktok this deal structure where a Chinese companies still retains majority ownership of tiktok wouldn't really help. Now we don't really know what exactly the national security concerns what the real threat is. It has yet to be proven. The TIKTOK is spying on US citizens or anything like that, and they of course deny that they're doing that. So it's unclear how serious? National security threat really is, but if you are worried about that, the deal that was proposed by Oracle, mom writes probably not going to satisfy those fears, Oracle and Walmart I haven't heard much about Walmart earned during this process i. always thought it was Oracle versus Microsoft what what's the Walmart connection? Yeah. So it seems Kinda random two people but actually are calling Jason del Ray did a good piece on this showing how for Walmart it's all about competing with Amazon and They've they've been losing this battle right for years with Amazon growing to be at the bigger and bigger commerce platform leader, and so for Walmart. This is a way to get in on something new and exciting and hot, and for one's not just be kind of like the slower bigger Guy you know falling behind the the younger. Lean Amazon but instead now it's like, Hey, we were in social media. We're doing something. Cool. We have younger potential market share here younger is. Valuable data potentially right from the the hundred million US users who use TIKTOK andrine. Last thing when we step back from this whether the deal happens or not has the last week sort of raised any questions about just how involved the trump administration is going to be in business deals like this and just how unusual it will prove to be. Completely and that's a great question because look the president of the US does have a lot of authority to issue sanctions and it's not just trump presidents many many many administrations have issued wide ranging bans on trade with certain countries or certain sectors because of national security issues think about sanctions on Iran or you know sanctions on the Soviet Union during the cold. War, right. That's normal. But usually something that's done systematically across a wide range of companies and industries. What is so different about what's happening here? What worries people? is how it seems targeted at one or in this case to companies talk and we chat and how the whole process has been haphazard confusing trump is reversed his positions many times. He says things that are totally beyond the pale in terms of not normal procedure is like saying that the buyer of Tiktok should essentially bribe the US government and pay an extra kick back to the Treasury Department and he actually has in this current deal. Oracle has proposed is giving five billion Oracle Walmart toward an Education Fund. That the US government will set up which and education fund might sound fine but it's it's unprecedented and very worrying from a kind of corruption point of view for a president to be able to to ask for one off kickbacks here and there and set up funds to his liking to do things that he wants to do, which in this case teach patriotic American values it's strange. It is worrisome and that is what is different about this.

TikTok is saved (for now): What you need to know

"So what happened over this busy weekend? Yeah I mean it's been quite the saga when it comes to tech top, there's been a lot of twists and turns and Different reports about you know. Who would partner with Tiktok, and what happened this weekend was trump basically blasted deal in concept between Walmart in Oracle that would give or Walmart a combined twenty percent stake in a new company called tiktok global and Florida five board members would be Americans and so this basically. gave enough assurance that the US government would temporarily delay any sort of ban on you downloads of Tiktok or a week. Like you said this has been an ongoing saga prior to this trump was against this deal and really probably is because you know these companies didn't have a majority stake in. What changed to get trump on board with the steel I mean. There's been a lot of back and forth between the companies even though Oracle in Walmart would have a combined twenty percent stake. Some people say that they're technically would be a majority ownership of American companies because by dance is owned by forty percent of US investors on this company, talk global will eventually go public. So that could potentially lower the Chinese ownership I mean. There's still a lot of questions in detail have to be hashed out in steel, and there was also some confusion over the weekend for example, trump had mentioned that. would be five billion dollars contributed to a US education fund oracle. Clarify that Tiktok, with pay by billion dollars in new taxes to the US Treasury. So it seems like behind the scenes, there are some terms that worked out that seem to appease trump but there's still a lot of details and confusion circulating the steel. Got It. In Friday we broke down how the trump administration has labeled to talk a national security concern. The idea being that the data that tiktok has on users could conceivably be turned over to the Chinese government. How does this deal address those concerns? We'll some senators Republican senators say that doesn't address these concerns to talk in Oracle say that they do because Oracle with hosted on its US Jadon it's cloud platform and they will be able to review the APP source code. You also have to remember that currently right now us user data according to talk is not stored in China already stored in the US and there's a backup in Singapore. So there are some critics of the deal including some Republicans you say that this doesn't really appeased national security concerns if that's where you're going after Puckett and so going back to Oracle Walmart I'm just. I'm curious. Why would they want to get involved with Tiktok I sorta get it with Oracle on this tech partnership where they would. They would store the data protected Walmart coming player. So large people view Tiktok as this you know. Fun, video APP where you're doing a lot of lip singing and dancing but there's also a lot of diy videos. Sometimes, I see videos about people is saying like these are the top five things I found on Amazon. So TIKTOK has been testing some E. Features in which. People can add links. So users can. Buy something or shop from this APP. So even though right now it's not really viewed as a big commerce a platform that is something that tiktok could definitely evolved into as it continues to grow. That's why you're seeing Walmart coming in as big player to might seem not seem odd right now but there's definitely a potential at, Tiktok does become the place where you shop in the future.

US banning use of WeChat, TikTok for national security

"All right. I'm sorry I didn't mean to be flip it but here's an example of what you're talking about Shannon. Possibly earlier than I expected the US Commerce Department announced the details of what qualifies for band transactions under the two executive orders affecting we chat and Tiktok I thought we wouldn't get until Sunday, but we got them today both we chat and Tiktok APPS will not be legal to distribute in the United States as of September twentieth. So APP stores will need to remove them just like apple decided to remove fortnight, they'll have to remove tiktok and we chat as we'll google play or. Any other APP store. Now, these executive orders can be rescinded if the Oracle deal is acceptable to the administration, keep an eye out. This isn't the final word but if condition stay as they are now that has to happen as of Sunday additionally on September twentieth taking payments through the we chat APP will be illegal. So stores in the US can't accept we chat that is often done for Chinese tourists to make it easier for them to pay. So that will not be allowed. For we chat in particular on September twentieth the US is forbidding the following any US company hosting any part of the we chat APP, a cdn service providing service to we chat any contracted transit or peering services doesn't mean that they can't transit the service but any agreement that says we'll give you peering as long as you give us peering back right or we'll. We'll give transit service if you pay us this much US companies can't. Do that anymore and any use of we check code in other APPS or services in the US. Lot Of folks think this is a first amendment violation because code is considered speech under a lot of precedents. But the idea here is stop clones to say, well, you can't just go take the we check code, put it in a different APP called something else under a different company. So you can't use the we check code in other services. This one's tricky. A dozen seemed mean we chat has to be actively blocked from the Internet. They're not asking ISP's block the we chat service they're slow down it means cdn's and transit providers can't work with ten cents on the we chat service, which would greatly reduce its reliability and availability possibly to make it almost useless. Those same prohibitions will not apply to tick Tock until November twelfth. So basically Oracle's got until November twelfth to get the deal done or tick tock becomes unusable as well. In summary As of September twentieth you won't be able to down the we chat download. We had dot from APPs stores in the US but if you have them already, you can keep them. They won't get security updates though. And we chat won't work very well but tick tock will still work as normal if you've got it until November twelfth. A couple other notes here, US Magistrate Judge Laura Bieler ruled Friday that she would not issue a preliminary injunction against this we chat order she previously had said she might be willing to because the original executive order issued in. August was a little vague but said, Friday hey. Now we have the details not vegas anymore. So. She says, this complaint is now moot. Further filings from the we at user alliance are expected to argue that it's not moot. We'll see if those come. Also instagram head at a Maseri tweeted that quote a US Tock Band would be quite bad for Instagram facebook and the Internet more broadly and in response Tiktok interim CEO Vanessa Pappas the head of tiktok in Santa Monica. Asked facebook and instagram quote publicly join our challenge and support our litigation in other words like fine. If you believe that we need your help. Of course, the president as of this recording has not yet issued his decision on the proposed deal for Oracle. It's expected at any moment oracle wants to become a trusted tech partner and minority owner in new us-based tech. Company. Owned by Bite Dance. The. Saga continues I imagine we might. Have this all solved by Monday but of course, then it's onto the next thing. How your feeling about this. Well Shannon I don't know about you but I am I was laid to the TIKTOK game but an enthusiastic TIKTOK USER I don't make stuff but I I watch other things and I really liked the APP and I'm not alone it's a very, very popular up and I can't really think of I've thought of I was trying to think of has this ever happened before some some time where there was something that I liked technology wise. That was then you kind of taken from me based on where I live a lot of other countries and regions in the world are very used to this I can't think of one I really can't. I can think of APPs or services that were available somewhere else and then they came to the US. Eventually, we're never did but not something that was sort of taken away. So I just wondered what the Creator Backlash all this is going to be like. There's a big creator backlash I. I'm sure that it's going to happen quite soon to like there's a lot of people that have that are creators on. TIKTOK. That had not diversified and just thinking of it from that Creator side there's a lot of people that are going to lose income just specifically with tiktok but also with we chat because we chat has always been. So internationally friendly where people can use it across borders. So there's a lot of like developers. There's a lot of companies that use we chat for business. So this is not only going to be hurting TIKTOK and we chat but. It's also going to be hurting the people that use it as well for their own businesses and I. Don't know if if this was considered when they decided to put in put this ban in place, and that's very very concerning not just because you know that that freedom of the Internet as I was mentioning earlier with the previous story but also from the whole income aspect of like at all times in in twenty twenty when we have a pandemic and they're going to remove the these applications because they're based in a different country and we're going to be losing the opportunities to conduct business because of that. Keep in mind folks when you're forming your opinion about this and I'm not telling you what opinion to have when I say this that. It is not against the rules for the United States to ban an APP we ban all kinds. Of APPS. There are APPs that we all agree should be gone child pornography fraud. Those kinds of APPS. What's at issue here is the administration is saying these two APPS are just as dangerous to our national security and to more personal data as a fraud APP and therefore yes, it's going to have fallout, but it's because they're dangerous apps like they pretend to give you something good but they're really. Supporting an enemy and we can't allow that seem that. That is the argument that is being made. And we can stay the same argument about a lot of social media platforms. I mean we we have American platforms that do dangerous things, but they are not under the supervision of the Chinese government. So there is a difference. It's a definitive difference and you can decide yes you want to think about it. I'm glad you added that comment that there needs to be a definitive difference. There needs to be proof and evidence. real quickly before we wrap this up yesterday, we reported that the Oracle deals term sheet would create a company called Tick Tock global based in the US with its own board of directors. We got a few more details on that term sheet axios llosa's INA freed has more detail saying the term sheet describes three boards. A board approved by the US government would oversee TIKTOK US and include a security director and an independent data security expert. With national security credentials, which is pretty much the description of a former CIA or NSA officials. So the US government would put a board to oversee the operations of tiktok in the US while Oracle would operate it. A security subcommittee of that board would be composed of US citizens with veto power over Tick Tock Global Security data privacy decisions in the US, and then there would be a board of directors independent of Bite dance over tiktok global. So Little more detail there for you to consider.

"Resting in a pool. Of Blood, the symbol, the feather of the life that Marco built with Lon Hazel. And it's resting in the symbol of that violence that they sought to escape, but that haunted there ever stop all the while. When the will tries to fire his Land Marco to after using it on fours arm, it explodes warping his metal hand, sparing Marco in the moment, but ultimately creating the weapon that will kill him. Marco juxtaposed against narration from Hazel about how Marco felt the violence in his US always shaped him launches into the will with clear aim to kill. You sends them both over the edge of a cliff into I-. AUNTIES Beach House in case in the jellyfish. and He puts his hands in the wills knack. When they hit the floor, they land on top of sweet boy skin just horrendous. Another product of foul acts all around them. Mirko bears his teeth in a way that causes the will to flash back to his own father's acts of violence from his youth which we'll talk about more soon. These cycles always repeat unless the characters can find a way to break down. When the will flicks the little. Like an xbox controller, a pink xbox controller. That also serves as basically a spaceship Alexa Alexa launch they take off into orbit, pulling Marco away from his family even before he's killed, but that family down on the beach sees the ship. Take off, and it is just so painful to watch them knowing that they know that Marco is flying away from them. They see the flashes in the air. That must be his magic his spells. They know he's on board that the forces of evil in the world are once again trying to pull their family apart. Marco weakened from his magic grabs, the wills injured metal hand, and cast another spell with blue fire, further warping the metal. The symbolism is almost painful. The man who wants to put down weapons. Wants to cast violence aside and live peacefully is forging in his own hand, the weapon that will kill him. Saga is in many ways powerful, hopeful tale, a testament to the wonders that family and love and choice can make, but moments this it's defeating almost nihilistic, if Marco devoted his life to escaping violence before it could consume him as Hazel previously said then what are we to make of the webs of prior violence in snaring him in the end when he headbutts the will and knocks him to the ground. The will is in his power. There's a real no DRAKO. It is by mercy, not yours that matters now energy to this sequence. Marco is not frozen by magic. As dumbledore was, but he decides to freeze himself to hold himself accountable to the priorities he set for his life. You choose is here to honor the pledge that he made to himself into family. Marko and Alana may have sucked at vows Hazel said, but in that fateful moment when he could have ended the wills life with a shield blast, the nose bridge, and the spirit is own, he chose not to turn the shield to a sword to put it down instead, and to look out upon jetsam upon his family upon the decision he made to lead a better and more peaceful in purposeful life in the will rips through his heart. Man No more fitting place on Marco's body to drive his hand through. Tender heart man it feels. As we said earlier. Initially impossible that Margot could be dying in front of US guess dead but. Saga like so many of the other stories that we prize. Teaches US lessons, and one of those is valuing what we have while we can. This story like a lot of those others has made it clear since the beginning. You know mom rewatching loss now I can hear Ben Linus. Dead is dead. Losing Marco, though even even with that understanding that core understanding place subverts another part of our fundamental understanding of what saga is, which is a story about a family determined to make its way through a world that does not want it to exist. From the beginning though became. Staples also understood in established Ross something. That is equally fundamental. Saga. Hazel. It's about what Marko and Alana's choices made possible for her. There's a reason that she's the narrator and the stories voice in from the future to establish that she moved forward, she moved on. She found a way to live, and so there could be no more fitting, but also no more desperately sad scene for Marco to flash you and his final moments of life. Then a conversation that he recently had with her with Hazel his daughter on the beach of Jetsam about how it a fine. Comfort With who you are and how to find the courage to say out loud. Who you want to be. He's reading a book. She's building a sandcastle. They are both in other words living in an crafting other worlds to inhabit. As Hazel Tells Marco that she doesn't want to have. Children doesn't wanNA bring life into. We can deduce the world so determined to snuff it out. That she wants to do other things make other things instead. He holds one of her tiny feathers in his hand as physical symbol and indicator just like his horns. To so many people in the universe of the differences that are meant to divide, but. For this family. have become linked beautifully wholly apart of Hazel. Beautiful being he's will wants to do other things. She tells her father make other things fine her own way forward and Marco of course supports her. Honey girl I don't care what you do. As long as you're kind to everyone you meet. That's it. She asked him. That is the hardest part of being alive, and it's True Marco knows anyone who's ever tried to be consistently decent kind do unto others knows it. And Hazel scenario kicks back in here. Parroting echoing her words from the opening issue way back when this epic tale reinforcing for us again how the past informs the future, the cycles and connections that we all have such trouble escaping, but also reinforcing just as importantly that there is a future that there is something to move forward toward that an idea ken become something much bigger, something, concrete and real impactful. The spark is poet say that will light a fire. Thanks to my parents Hazel Words repeat at least I got to grow old, and then over a bear and bleak, gutting image of Marco bleeding to death. Not Knowing if he saved his family, not knowing if it was enough, but ultimately knowing at least tried. Not Everybody does. crushing. Really Legitimately Davidge stay. It's not. It's definitely not something you're ready for all of.

"That was really upset. Because this thing's going nowhere going nowhere if we don't band together and I don't WanNa keep going. But here's my outlook and it's so different from last week. I think think think about great leadership. Great great leadership isn't about telling people easy things it's about telling people things they don't WanNa hear that protect them and ultimately in the long run proved to be the right call. So I'm at a spot right now where I'm thinking you can catch bars. Restaurants closed visit. Okay I'll okay. Why do not why don't we mandate fucking fourteen twenty one day military quarantine everywhere? It will suck for me. It'll suck for you. It'll suck for business. That's the only way you kill this thing. It's it why why don't we have leadership the freedom to sleep week? It's dangerous what's what do you do. Another episode of business in biceps. And you've wake your ass up his on today show. I'm on my cell phone Johnny. Still on a good Mike. We're just trying to figure out a way to bring you the new episode. 'cause we got lots of talk about. I know fos goes got some stuff. He wants to talk about from last time that we had episode and we just need to weigh in on all kinds of crazy shit in once again. The podcast can't be stopped no matter how we are laying down unknown at the Johnny. Let's get the same role in yeah yellow. Let's get a role in so first off. I don't know it gives me a little bit of Comfort and a good feeling to know that we will for as long as we can be be here on the same days for the for everyone who wants to listen for everyone who chooses to listen regardless of what. What else changes out there that we're going to be here and at least we can be some form of consistency for those people who are looking at it so that that makes me feel good as we turn the MIC on as we start recording that makes me feel good outside of that man. I just want to I want to personally. I WanNa personally say that last episode we did. I was extremely wrong and I was extremely wrong because I did what I think. I criticize a lot. And that's just just kind of jumping to conclusions without information and even though there isn't that much information out on what we're dealing with right now as a country I think. I think I minimized it and in doing that I think I'm you know. Potentially if people listen put people in some kind of danger so I I think we're in in a really interesting situation now where everything that we talked about last week and just a refresher that like this thing. This Corona Virus Code Nineteen. Wherever you want to call it is not going to recap occur. Kill young people. That's probably still true right. That's probably still true but the speed at which this thing is past is truly unbelievable. And that's what makes this so truly dangerous because I could have it. Corey could have it. a twenty five year old could have it we. We have to stop looking at it. Like what if I get it and we have to start looking at it like I could be the one who passes it to people's Grandmothers and mothers and kills them. That's how we have to start looking at it. We can't look at it In in in in the eyes of ourselves because this thing we are all whether we like it or not. Where all in this together and intil this this thing stops. We're all endanger. We're all in danger so it serious man it serious and I just wanted to open it up by saying downplaying it in any way was absolutely wrong by me and day by day every twenty four hours that goes by this thing is relearn reeler Johnny. What made you Kinda Rethink I. Guess your position. What was the kind of contributing factor just the way that the news is progressed? Or you know I didn't rethink it. I basically saw what this thing is doing. I saw on a Friday in the United States. Twenty two hundred reported cases in on a Monday forty five hundred in on a Tuesday fifty nine hundred okay. The rate is absurd and what else I saw someone very close to me and us is very sick and he tried to get tested and I tried to help him and it was a four hour battle with the State Department health and it failed. He couldn't get tested. Well we went fucking. We went commando style the next day and we got him tested yesterday. I just saw basically that I needed to use. Every ounce of let's say my tactical thinking to be able to get someone who's legitimately sick showing symptoms of everything they say about cove in nineteen. I had to use all that to help him get a test. So that makes me think how many people how many fucking people try to get a test in aren't going to put five hours into it and tactical hundreds so I'm sitting here saying God confirmed cases debt means nothing. I mean I that means nothing because we can't test people we can try to get a test try. It's nuts it's insane here. Here's what I want to tell people I want to because I think I didn't do. People serve as last week if you think you have it. Lie To them. Tell them you were in the presence of someone who recently got back from Europe. Tell them you have a dry cough. Tell them it's. It's not about telling them the truth. It's about getting fucking tested and making sure you're okay so they're not gonNA test you in less you're out of the country or you're around someone who was. I just found that out. Okay so until we get more test kits and all this stuff which we cannot control lie to them. Lie To him. Because you're lying to make sure you are okay and you being okay makes sure everyone around. You is okay for at least time being. That's what I've learned to really. The reality is Johnny that confirmed cases of bullshit number. Because think about like you as a extremely good entrepreneur had to rely on tactical thinking. Push in like your normal. The way that you operate is what got that to the finish line. People that fall through the cracks don't have the resources don't have that type of mindset. They're not even sniffing attest not not even close in. And here's what's what's frustrating right and this may sound funny but when I'm on the phone with like a state health department official who who literally is like my sixth phone call because the system. The system is spinning me. It spinning me I legitimately. I didn't feel angry. I let I felt like like like I felt hurt. My feelings felt hurt that in a time of unprecedented like peril in this country that we're not trying to help each other. I just I just I. It was a weird feeling man like like like I was really upset because this thing's going nowhere. It's going nowhere if we don't ban together and I don't WanNa keep Goin' but but but here's my outlook and it's so different from last week. I think you know think think about great leadership. Great great leadership is in about telling people easy things. It's about telling people things they don't WanNa hear that protect them and ultimately in the long run proved to be the right call. So I'm at a spot right now where I'm thinking okay. Bars restaurants close visit okay. I'll okay why do not. Why don't we mandate a fucking fourteen twenty one day military quarantine everywhere it will suck for me. It'll suck for you suck for business. That's the only way you kill this thing that's it. Why don't we have leadership? That's I don't get it. I don't fucking get it there. We have to do some aggressive. Or it's never gonNA. It's Never GonNa Change because I was listening to the doctor Foul Chee. Pmt and in in dance podcast Part of my take in. He's just like look you. Don't you can think all why don't see very many people but it is astronomical if you just even just still going to get groceries even just like doing like a stream scaled-back version of your life. You still could be carrying it and taking it to these the elderly elderly people that are in highly you know vulnerable and he was like look. If you're outside walking your dog if you're outside you can run by somebody that has it and you're not GonNa get it. They would have to be like a really some type of event of them sneezing on your he said. But he's like I'm telling you that I don't in. This guy is like the guy that's the lead on it. He saying look he's like basically basically yeah and they just had him on and he's like look. I can tell you like if the summer comes. This is going to help. Maybe it does with some things they don't really know Johnny like it was funny because exactly those big big cat goes like this. Talk to us like we're eight years old. Thirty seven is true. Like what are the basics really knows because information is so bad that that's GonNa make sure your sources of information so I commend you on come back saying like hey if somebody was taken what you said a couple of days ago as the only source of information. That's what made you feel bad about it because you think you might have some wrong so to come back and say that is Kudos to you. But it's the truth. Were were doing this because people are still looking for information to be safe to help in. I talked about on the daily fire early today that this is our new normal right now. It's just the reality in there yet. And that's what I mean. We're heading towards that isolation at a higher level and that's the only way that it's going to get whipped in so I mean it's just days before that they re they really need to do it. Now I agree one hundred percent. I don't WanNa do that. You don't WanNa do that. But that's what needs to happen. Listen exactly if we know we're going to take it in the fucking ass which which we are in every every way right now from fear standpoint from a money standpoint. We all know what's happening. We all we all know it's happening. If you got a bite the fucking bullet don't prolong the fuck and firing squad fucking put me on my knees and execute me. He you know what I'm saying like it has it. Has We need leadership. Fuck I fucking orange face. Say Oh West Virginia. The they don't have a lot of cases so we can't look at this as a as a nation motherfucker webster population. How spread out capable of spreading. Come on come on like like like I. I Fun with this guy. I laugh at this but right now we don't need to figure out how to prop up business. Business is going to take a beating. This is a business show and I'm not talking. Business is GonNa take a beating uperior. We cannot. We're not gonNA stop this by figuring out how to stimulate business. We're fighting a war. We're fighting a war period and you have to kill your fucking enemy and our enemy isn't the stock market. We'll figure that out our enemies this fucking disease and we have to stop looking at other measures to prevent financial whatever it's.

"saga" Discussed on Tips for Travellers Podcast

"You're about to discover the four things you really need to know about saga cruises. I'm gary beverage. This is another of my tips so terrorism here onboard saga all the cruisers spirit of discovery in my cabin. And I want to share with you things that I think you really need to know about saga starting with this one solid cruise is part of the Saga Holding Group and they specialize in insurance and also regularly travels so escorted tours particularly they have two ships is in their fleet very modern fleet spurts of discovery. Which I'm on now? According this which was launched in twenty nineteen and spirit of adventure assistantship launched in twenty twenty it operates in the small ship category. They have nine hundred and ninety nine guests on these ships ten passenger decks. And it's all. Aw Balcony. Cabins Songa talks about offering boutique small ship cruising and what they mean by. That is the whole design and look and feel of the ship is quite contemporary modern inspired by not hotels particularly in London and small ship because it falls within the small ship category in industry by only having nine hundred and ninety nine guests secondly one of the critical things that I always like to look at when reviewing a cruise line is what they do. Unique or different to other cruise lines and soccer does a surprising large and in fact this seven things that I think they do differently first of all they are an adult only fifty plus the cruise line. The second thing they do is they focus on a very British experience. So everything on the ship. It's starring food the quizzes the entertainment rain meant the lectures even the passengers. It's very very bridge experience. And in fact if you WANNA come on a saga cruise the only way you can really book is through. UK agents or through UK Saga Saga does offer probably one of the most British of ord experiences that you can get cruising out of the UK. The other thing that saga it does and they win a lot of awards. Every year travel awards they win awards for it. which is they door to door? Vip Service so they basically will come and collect you from way you live bring you right down to the ship in Dover and then when you finish they will take you back to your hub. So it's very much a door to door service and the guests has to come on. Saga cruises love the fact that they met at the door and brought all the way to the the other thing which I think they cater for better than any other cruise whose line in the world is for Solo travelers. Twenty percent of the cabins on these new ships spurred discovery and the spirit of adventure also solo cabins. One hundred nine cabins are seller cabins so they catered enormously for Solo travelers. And it does mean that you don't have then all the big surcharges for double occupancy. So definitely I don't think there's any other cruise line that caters on the scale. As a percentage of their ship for Solo travelers something. Yeah I think they do incredibly well and they have lots of meet ups and ways of looking off to solid travelers once. They're on board the other thing which saga do is. They provide no-fly oh fly cruising out of the UK all year round. Most of the departures will be out of places like Dover. They do move to Southampton particularly the winter season but unlike like many cruise lines who move their ships out of the UK and head to places like the Caribbean Saga will sell all year round out of the UK. That's one thing that I think does make them. Unique and different. The whole fleet is based in the UK all year round another really interesting aspect to what saga does is. They will bundle insurance into the fair one of the challenges when you go cruising is the cost of insurance and getting making sure that you've got the right policy and also because saga does attract attract. Some older passengers sixty seventies and above getting travel insurance and cruise insurance can be a challenge so within their fair you can opt in to have insurance to cover. Cover your crews. I don't have any other cruise line that included within their fair. So it's definitely something unique and it's a real big plus another thing that they do pretty uniquely Sydney for the the category of ships that they operate in is their fares. Have a huge amount of inclusions compared to other cruise lines of similar standard solvency or combinations included oil foods included and that includes both the standard dining. So you in the main restaurant in the grill and the Verandah which are the informal dining but also so then all of the specialty restaurants have example onboard spirit of discovery. They have the club by Jews Holland. Which is the steakhouse? They have have east to West which is a real saga classic which is kind of Asian fusion food then have seafood restaurant called coast to coast on spirit of adventure. They're tweaking slightly highly. You still have the steakhouse you never Nepalese. And you're going to have an Italian so all of your dining is included afternoon. Tea Room Service is included. They use include wine wine and beer at lunchtime but all of your drinks are included in all the fares from twenty twenty as already mentioned. You got the transfer service and you've got the insurance. They also have a shuttle bus which runs into the towns. If it's not within easy walking distance that's included within the fair that's kind of a complimentary shuttle shuttle-service other cruise lines would often charge you for that other inclusions within the they include Wi fi now most cruise lines will charge you for Wi fi. Some of the very premium ones to be honest with you. I don't find the why particularly good on board The Times that I've been on board saga but it is definitely included. gratuities are included. And even if you go to the spar bar I was in charge any gratuities into SPA so no gratuities on top of your fair. That's included so the key extras that you're GONNA pay for is laundry okay. You'RE GONNA pay for that. You can use the guest laundry for nothing obviously do shopping. There's no casino on board if you some in the medical center and then excursions they are extra so the fares do include pretty much more than many other equivalent cruise lines. So thirdly what do saga do the same or worse than other cruise lines of a similar types of premium and cruise lines. Well first of all they offer a very traditional cruising experience not gonna find it particularly innovative or different. So it's going to have formal formal nights for example where you are expected to dress up so gentlemen Tuxedo Dockside Anti Ladies and sort of glamorous counts the activities and events on board are pretty traditional as well as you can have. Things like quizzes. Putting competitions trivia quizzes the production shows are very traditional styles. You can have view sort of review type shows. I think the shows for example are pretty standard to the rest of the industry then optically innovative in different. So that good quality descending passages enjoyed them a lot but sitting I found them pretty standard to other cruise lines so if you like production shows which are of the review type so for example they had some on board which looked at dance music through the decades that had another one focusing on Queen. Those types of shows pretty traditional. That's what you're going to get on board other other activities that they offer include dancing to live bands. which again is very consistent for a lot of British based cruise lines? They also have craft of classes. That have a dedicated craft class. That have a library stocked with lots of books. So it is pretty similar from many of the other cruise lines of its type in terms of the Status Ah type of cruising experience. It's not particularly different cruise experience. So if you like traditional cruising you certainly would like the saga experience the facilities ability. He's on board. The ship are again pretty traditional for cruise ships. You can find the usual things. Spa Fitness Center Pool Selection of bars. And lounges although in fact one of the largest which I think is kind of different very special is the large but overall the facilities are pretty standard for other cruise cruise ships of its type. The other thing which I think is pretty similar is food. The food on board is great but of course all premium lies tend to have really good food. There's lots of choice always big menus good quality food but I would say it's pretty consistent with other cruise lines of that type of you paying us a premium crusade. Expect good food and you'll find it on saga and they certainly have the choice because they have different specialty restaurants but I'd say all the Food City matches and as good as other premium lines like other premium Siemian cruise ships cruise ships as a wide range of accommodation. But what's very important is. They're all balconies so is also a plus but you can get everything from sweets down to sorta balcony cabins so there's a wide range of cabin types like there are on other cruise ships the thing which they also probably do a little bit worse than other cruise lines is making it. Easy for international guests come on board. They're very focused on the British cruise. Up and it's very easy if you live in the UK to Gonzaga crew's coming from another country so you're Australian or from the US. It's a little more difficult because they don't actually sell those actively in the country so you me to work with an agent which can connect with saga in the UK. They can make all the arrangements they can do flights and do all the arrangements to get you into the UK but it they don't make if that easy so you do have to deal with saga or an agent in the UK that deals with saga. So that's one thing they probably make a little bit more difficult. Because if you WANNA cruise norman other cruise lines you'll find it very easy to make bookings online directly with a local site so who is saga best for us. I mentioned you need to be an adult change. Be over fifty or one of the people in the Party needs to be fifty to come saw crews so it's only no kids and you do tend to find. The profile is on the higher side and of course it depends a little bit on the cruise and the length of crews and time of the year. So you will find a lot of people in the sixty seventies and even in their eighties onboard a saga crews also. You need to be someone who loves a very British experienced lights traveling with lots of British travelers. It's going to be pretty much. All British cruises loses onboard and the experience as discussed is going to be very British from the food the entertainment so if you really craving looking for a great experience you'll find it on board. It's very very good. If you're a solid travel as I've mentioned they also do have cabins for people with accessibility needs and are very good at dealing with people who have accessibility needs on on the ship and also when it comes to ranging excursions so those types of travelers will find saga a good option in my view. Saga is a very interesting line. It's a small small line at a very British focused line and it has really big strong loyal following. Hopefully that's giving you some insight if you'd like many more tips around cruising wasn't you watch one of my other videos. I have many many videos all about cruising so watch one of them right now..

Love that really appreciate you making the effort. Welcome to the now. Are your friends fees fee face visa. There's much. I don't know if we qualified what we'll try. <hes> twenty seven season <hes> you're doing great great putting gary numbers went to uconn. Guess <hes> what is <hes>. What's the transition been going from. <hes> power program like yukon to the w._n._b._a. Where you're doing great at certain pretty easy because because i think the programs are so similar and i think that's why they both had so much success because what they expect from their players is so high and so they get great results all right so. I know you have some gino r._e._m. At stories right. I have a couple. What's the best when you got <hes> the one that everyone likes. The most is <hes> one time. It was snowing really really hard so we didn't have a bunch of people at the game quiet and i had done something where coaches y'all got me. He's like so and everyone heard them. I was like guys keep running. Don't look don't what he's screaming my name like that. I wasn't looking at him and so everyone brings that out because everyone now one of the things that megan w._n._b._a. Is the turnaround from college the season like that very quick quick so when you're talking about the transition that you have to make what's your process of going from yukon into professional basketball <hes> <hes> you know what was really quick going from like the final four to the draft graduating coming to minnesota but those two or three weeks we have <hes> before the season is kind of where you get all your kinks out yeah. That's where you're really learning new things and especially moving to the three when i played the four before <hes> that was kind of a transition transition for me i so that's kind of where i try to figure that out so you make the transition and make the also team in your first year. The only rookie make y'all certain replacing asia wilson right. What was it like when you found out you were named that all star team and all star game in vegas with liz cambay jr who is one of the great personalities w._n._b._a. It was really fun. I was so excited when i got that call and then in <hes> being <hes> liz you know they're trying to be a point guard shooting. Those threes six eight six eight trying to be a point guard back in people up. Taking a full court is really fun. You said that <hes> i read a story the other day that you haven't been too shy about the fact you'd like to win rookie of the year. It's typically an award the number one pick wins rookie of the i think nine out of the last eleven kevin house you weren't a high draft pick. So what would it mean to to win. Rookie of the year being lowered. It would mean a lot to me. <hes> is the goal that i set for myself. Originally before the season season started <hes>. I knew that i could do it and so i'd be in great and <hes> you know so close so you're all star coach. There was bill m._b. And he made some headlines because he was really upset that they provide first class travel for the w._m._b._a. All-stars can you tell us for those of us who are involved what he's w._n._b._a. Travel really like these <hes> personally i think are we haven't had any huge problems. It's different from college because we used to charter so we'd be gone unlike right after the game you better travel at uconn than you have champion minnesota lynx but that's the reality of the current w._n._b._a.

"Season. I've never seen clay too enthusiastic about anything so if michael says we're getting pretty excited. Did you think that's an ambitious time line. I don't think it's necessarily ambitious brian but there's there's obviously going to be the context of the warriors now and players <music> hurrying back from injury so there may be some hesitation in that regard. I'm sure the warriors are gonna want to take an extremely slowly. Some of this may depend on where they sit right. You know if there it are bobby marx predicted. They're going to miss the playoffs <hes> if they're battling for a real. It's a really good point -sition then then then maybe klay thompson ah look we know klay thompson the reason he played in the finals for crying out loud. He's one of the most competitive players in the n._b._a. And he wanted to play and if he's sitting there on the sidelines in the warriors are in the midst of a three game losing streak. He may say look. I'm ready to go. I'm cleared medically get me back out. These <hes> futures from caesar's might that'd be a bad bet at plus nine hundred higher than your rocket out that surprise me given <hes> with rockets have on that ross ran. Obviously the the fact that klay thompson is going to miss most if not all of the season nine to twelve months. I think is pretty typical for a to return from a tornado seattle. I think the best this case scenario for the warriors is klay. Thompson can get back at some point late in the season and then be something close to his normal self once the playoffs roll around and then if he is you know they've at least got a shooters chance yeah don't don't forget they got the russell and one of the reasons why they got russell was too so that they he could have an all-star slide into that spot. Get those minutes and play those those play that role and frankly you know if russell plays to the same level. He played in brooklyn last season. We'll see how it fits along with steph. It's not unreasonable to think that they are playoff team. Even if play doesn't come back <hes> and i think we all know it's an an injury that we're very familiar with sports fans with you and we've all covered players who've come back from a._c._l.'s typically when they can get get back on the court the following year they don't return to full perform until a year sort of the second season so i'm not saying the klay won't step on the court but i think we need to manage expectations. We've seen some players sit on an entire season. Listen from it. We've seen some guys come back seven eight nine months so but it would be something brian if the warriors are like. Let's say the seven six seven seed and klay thompson is back and ready ready to go for an opening round playoff series. That would be something. It's also a motivational factor for the team. You know it's like let's let's keep in this. Is we got to be in position. When clay comes back back with the team can sort of hang onto ignored during the season so michael thompson when he's talked about klay in the past. He's frankly been pretty active talked about contract trek situation and he seems to know things like some some fathers. You know it's not always true. <hes> let's aired. Fox was apparently happy in sacramento. He told one thirty seven p._m. Dot com that's.

"There never was that true rivalry and now we start having these storylines elaine's like tyler linked up into two rival was spurned by the lakers is now back with the clippers in a fun talking about tie is taco. Just sidelines really made. I think five six million bucks. He took this job because he takes a step down. You know you know it really limits. Maybe what he can do during the season prepare for next year. I think this is just really tie wanting to be part of the slip organization. I think it's a vote the confidence and the clippers and as you guys know tie is very well respected and well and also he has a close relationship with doc rivers remember. He had this role before he got the cavs job yeah so he went from he went from being issues with thai undocking no like those guys are really close. Doc helped launch him as a coach in this league and he's one of his proteges regimes and so. I think that that's really the draw here but you know the lakers in their salary negotiations. One of the main points was you know. Did he have offers from elsewhere. It's a demand that eight million dollars and it's taking less and this just in at the buzzer according to people magazine the westbrook has launched a westbrook <hes> <hes> west brown's brownstein green tech program sorry reaching a teaching skills at at risk inner city kids here in l._a.

Block week royce. What's your favorite block ever. I think my favorite block ever is lebron. I think that's oh yeah. I feel like people forget about that when it was in the n._b._a. Finals feet the most famous whenever the one on that altay sean princeton and the you know the rodney goodell heads at the rim there the the block and that's the most impactful block in the industry with steph doing that post on that one that won't be on the got tired all that that's just disrespected two-handed grab and can you norton yeah all right miss manners. How about that mismanage. She get that some youngsters. Excuse are trying to play pick up ball and this man this man. He's he's a man. Just doesn't care get the he needs. He's shots up and he will not be told otherwise otherwise tim o. Four hoops etiquette awful etiquette and it's disrespectful to the game to have the khaki shorts. Hold up that the new balance just the whole thing is awful then like dude on video. I don't think he should be. I don't think he's ranges to the three point online. I think he needs to move it in. I i don't think basketball court gunshots is going to give them a shot so <hes> all right move it on on ooh rhythm dame. Put this video of himself up dancing by the way points for that. She named all oakland shirt royce. Who's the best dancer n._b._a. I'm not touching that brian because the two most controversial takes you can have with n._b._a. Players it's who's the best dresser and who's the best dancer. I think you get less trouble if you just rank. They're playing rush out of okay so you can say whatever you want. His old dance partner campaign is back in the league yeah. Is that a good move for campaign. It'd be the diaspora purpose sure dana good dancer. There's a lot of good dancers on a lot of good dressers movement smith's defense checkup the series as a move by the soccer kid amazing basically crossovers tim was this was like for guys crossing <hes> when alan iverson cross them up yeah i mean just put put in pristina pretzel pets we can't we don't shame guys who are trying to play defense okay. We're trying to play in this guy just crawling on all fours. I respect he's trying. He's trying to defend. I alway stage. The goalie played like almost no defense there and he got beat so i think we're gonna make fun of the golden more than a guy who's actually trying to move his feet out took switching gears but still talking about defense to devon booker so no this is a pickup season pickup game season during a pickup game <hes> he didn't appreciate getting double teamed yesterday. Take a listen to this probably not only open to posses rome. Come over gary. Sorry bro gang government. I loved it. I think it was joking. Okay no that was calling fan double coffered and it was <hes> tony snell by the way who came over to double. He's just following his big man. Tell them what to do. <hes> and look look. Here's booker's point highest percentage double teams face last season and this was a stunning. I mean this is sort of a commentary the rest of the suns roster right but like yeah i saw this number initially. I was like come on bro. I mean maybe it's game point what i saw that number. I was like you know what i feel him. He's tired of getting ws so you'd feel him. He's wrong because he's the hypocrite he said. I'm trying to work on my game not need to work on you. Get double more than anybody else. You need to work on playing out of a double team trying to help well..

"The andrei three hundred off the champion virginia team so you know that that pretty much is also john. Collins looks like he's a really nice. Pick also add kevin haven't heard her picked in last year's draft too so he's drafted some interesting guys. The duchess trade is a fascinating trade. <hes> trade on had a great rookie season. What do you think about what what he's done in that spot. You know what's interesting about it. Brian is that when he made the daunted straight a lot of people kind of said that's the type of move that can get you fired right yeah right and instead i. I don't know if that's the type of move that has got him. This promotion and later tables turned quite quickly. Hey young rookie of the year vote. If i may <hes> may not but i don't know but the the the point is is that look traditionally has done a tremendous job in taking an untenable situation with what the hawks had and rebuilding it quite quickly. They have assets. They have a young talent base. They're they're the type of team in the east. That cannot just be good. Maybe not this upcoming season. They'll be better but the building something would be way pierce. Their coach is built <hes> an interesting system of offense. They're they're kind of a little bit of the warriors east and so look if you don't if you don't lock people up now the name they start having a wandering eye themselves so i think it's you're you're in dallas. You know that the mavericks were happy that john travis link went that direction made available to them and look. I think travis link probably probably underestimated. Just what kind of impact luca danni was going to make at the same time. Look trae young has a really really bright future. I mean i see eh a steve nash type without the without the conscience you know an analytically savvy version of steve nash i mean the shooting the passing assing he's going to be one of the best offense of creators in this league for i think for most of his career and this is a really intriguing young cordesman a complete rebuild the hawks one of the more exciting especially in the eastern conference. John collins is a incredible dunker with the lobster and and trey obviously gets red hot from the outside. They are fun team to watch. They've got shooters. They've got wings around him and they're all young kids. They've got can't be a long time. They your classic type of team where they do have to take those steps forward because if they don't then we sit here in year two year three year or four and you start wondering where's where's it come next. Isn't this what the thunder would love to be in two years. I mean they're not going to have the picks right away but in this like almost an ideal rebuild after two years without getting super duper lottery luck wasn't like they've they didn't win the lottery. They haven't gotten a top one pick. Although they got the number of the way they did it is they got bad and that's that's what a lot of people don't want acknowledge that they got bad so that they can get. They got bad and they made asset collection. The priority yeah yeah coming up devon booker and jono argued about double teaming and a pickup game. I couldn't do some analysis here. In whose side are you on. We're going to discuss that but first. Here's a distant replay from this date in two thousand six team u._s._a. Verse china in sapporo japan guys. I was at this game me me and me and about two hundred people this is when they were trying to tell us that john was seventeen years old. <hes> who were hoping the lakers will give them a call yeah they did have some chinese fans in gem is brought to you by geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car.

"Season. I've never seen clay too enthusiastic about anything so if michael says we're getting pretty excited. Did you think that's an ambitious time line. I don't think it's necessarily ambitious brian but there's there's obviously going to be the context of the warriors now and players <music> hurrying back from injury so there may be some hesitation in that regard. I'm sure the warriors are gonna want to take an extremely slowly. Some of this may depend on where they sit right. You know if there it are bobby marx predicted. They're going to miss the playoffs <hes> if they're battling for a real. It's a really good point -sition then then then maybe klay thompson ah look we know klay thompson the reason he played in the finals for crying out loud. He's one of the most competitive players in the n._b._a. And he wanted to play and if he's sitting there on the sidelines in the warriors are in the midst of a three game losing streak. He may say look. I'm ready to go on cleared medically get me back out these <hes> futures from caesar's might that'd be a bad bet at plus nine hundred higher than your rocket out that surprise me given <hes> with rockets have on that ross ran. Obviously the the fact that klay thompson is going to miss most if not all of the season nine to twelve months. I think is pretty typical for a to return from a tornado. I think the best this case scenario for the warriors is klay. Thompson can get back at some point late in the season and then be something close to his normal self once the playoffs roll around and then if he is you know they've at least got a shooters chance yeah and don't don't forget they got the russell and one of the reasons why they got russell was too so that they he could have an all-star slide into that spot. Get those minutes and play those those play that role and frankly you know if russell plays to the same level. He played in brooklyn last season. We'll see how it fits along with steph. It's not unreasonable to think that they are playoff team. Even if play doesn't come back <hes> and i think we all know it's an an injury that we're very familiar with sports fans with you and we've all covered players who've come back from a._c._l.'s typically when they can get get back on the court the following year they don't return to full perform until a year sort of the second season so i'm not saying the klay won't step on the court but i think we need to manage expectations. We've seen some players sit on an entire season. Listen from it. We've seen some guys come back seven eight nine months so but it would be something brian if the warriors are like. Let's say the seven six seven seed and klay thompson is back and ready ready to go for an opening round playoff series. That would be something. It's also a motivational factor for the team. You know it's like let's let's keep in this. Is we got to be in position. When clay comes back back with the team can sort of hang onto ignored during the season so michael thompson when he's talked about klay in the past. He's frankly been pretty active talked about contract trek situation and he seems to know things like some some fathers. You know it's not always true. <hes> let's aired. Fox was apparently happy in sacramento. He told one thirty seven p._m. Dot com that's.
