Less than half of US public believes the election results will be accurate

"That less than half Of the public believes the election tally will be accurate. Less than half So that I'm going to do. The reciprocal is here. Well, then, that must mean a majority things. It won't be. And if that's the case, no matter who wins. If we don't if we do not believe it. Then what happens to our republic? You have tohave. Trust in the fact that the process the system works. So With all of that, and by the way, I've been flipping around on all the various networks today. And The left is apoplectic. They are absolutely come at every topic of every show so far today. About the fact that Donald Trump's not gonna step aside. He's talking to the military about having the military come in. And keep him keep the opposition away and keep him there and and that they're going to make sure that this goes, you know, they're not going to count the balance. There is going to declare that he's the winner and then the Supreme Court will now be in the hands of conservatives, and then they're going to rule in favor of him. But I made her go nuts. Then I looked at the Washington Examiner there right there, Right in the same story in the front of Drudge is writing the same story. So this isn't like some of this is like the elephant in the room that people are afraid to talk about. I really wanna have a conversation with you about this. I don't want people that are just angry. What are you doing, Tom? Why? Why are you talking about President Trump the greatest guy in the whole wide world. I'm not. I'm not talking about who's gonna win or he's gonna lose. I'm talking about the fact that both parties are spending a lot of time undermining the accuracy of the election. Down. Has any election ever been precisely, exactly. 1000% accurate. I doubt it. seen in my lifetime was 2000, Florida. Or I believe it was 508 votes. In favor of George W. Bush. But before this was they went through and recounted and re counted and recounted, And then it went to the courts and the courts ruled about you can't recount Yes, you can recount Okay, Broward, you could recount but Then I went to the Supreme Court. And they finally put a stop to all the recount recount recount. But that did not mean that the New York Times and CBS News We're not still there. Digging with their lawyers. Doing everything they could to figure out what the true account wasn't after. It was a good year, when finally all of the media investigations. Finally came to the conclusion that George W. Bush won by 508 votes. But what's that did was it for the first couple of years of the Bush administration even after 9 11? There was a period where we were all united after 9 11, but but otherwise. It was. He's not a legitimate president. Now that was going all during his first term, And then when he was re elected in 2004 at pretty much, they still did not like him, but they stopped the fact that he wasn't a legitimate president. And so if Donald Trump wins you want this country No matter how much you like him or don't like him, you want the country to know that he is the legitimate president if Joe Biden wins You want to know that as well.

California wants to ban gas-powered cars, but is the auto industry ready to go all electric?

"The trump administration is not pursuing climate-friendly Policies California is Governor Gavin. NEWSOM this week pledged to ban all sales of new gasoline powered vehicles in the state by twenty thirty, five California consumes a lot of gas and would be the first state in the country to enact this kind of blanket ban. So what would it mean for the auto industry and for the state's economy marketplace's Jasmine Garcia reports remember that SNL skit the Californians, it's a spoof on how much time Californians spend behind the wheel. Take to the. Age of forty five doors and liftgate dump you onto Mohali Blah. There's something to this California is the largest consumer of motor gasoline in the nation banning the sale of gas powered cars starting twenty, thirty, five cents a message to an auto industry that's been sluggish on change says Ethan L. Kind Director of the climate program at UC Berkeley. Look if you want to do business in a major market, like California, fifteen years you better get going but industry insiders say the ban accelerate the inevitable sam for any with auto forecast solutions. Industry believes that the next big thing is vs the problem is the pricing on visas still expensive it's still takes a while to. Charge charging him structure is building, but it's still not everywhere we needed to be and even with the ban on purchases, it's going to take a long time to get all those gas powered cars off California's roads says Georgia with Sony head of the Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research cars have two three lives. You buy a new car then you sell it maybe five years later, and if it's a good car might through two or three different cycles overeat sales, right. But as the state continues to grapple with climate change, many Californians feel time is of the essence of Jasmine guards for marketplace.

Thousands Of Airline Workers Facing Unemployment As Aid Package Stalls In Congress

Thousands Of Airline Workers Facing Unemployment As Aid Package Stalls In Congress

"Is the airline industry. Air travel demand is down a wop a whopping 70% from last year and tens of thousands of airline pilots, flight attendants, a reservation agents and other industry workers are poised to lose their paychecks next week if Congress doesn't extend federal aid for airlines. NPR's David Shaper reports. A nation's airlines are at a crossroads. Or maybe I should say cross runways at the start of the year. On average about 2.5 million people were flying every day. Now that's plummeted to around 700,000, and until there are widely available vaccines or treatments for covert 19. Most passengers won't be coming back any time soon. You can't run an airline that a third the size it was and expect to keep all the same people. Elaine Backer is an airline industry analyst for investment Bank Cowan. I feel like in this country we've shifted from flattening the curve to waiting for a cure or a vaccine, and and that just means the pain is going to be longer in the cares act, Congress provided $25 billion a direct payroll support to the airlines so they could keep paying their employees through the end of September. Already, tens of thousands of workers have taken early retirement or other incentives to leave their jobs. But now the airlines air notifying another 75,000 that they may be out of a job. October 1st getting that for letter in the mail. Completely shocking. Isaiah Gonzalez is an aircraft maintenance worker for united at New York's LaGuardia Airport. The first thing that came to mind with how I was going to support my family people who depend on me. How was I going to keep the income? I was going to keep the family afloat, and Gonzalez is not alone. Me. Getting fellow is like this devastating. Tony Valentine is a reservations agent for United Airlines in Detroit. I have six that depend on me Arrange it age from 2 to 22, Valentine says. That's a houseful with a whole lot of bills. In addition, she says her husband suffered a serious stroke last year. And knowing that I may not have insurance to finishes is like I feel like I failed often at loggerheads. The unions representing these and other airline employees are now in rare harmony with airline CEOs in pressing Congress for a six month extension of the payroll support program. The industries in dire straits Nick Calio heads the industry group Airlines for America at one point Passenger traffic was down 96%. It's now down 70%. Still, one third of our planes are parked not flying, and we're losing $5 billion a month. The airlines unions and bipartisan majorities in Congress agree that the six months of payroll support worked in keeping airline employees off of unemployment rolls. In the tens of thousands of layoffs now might send shockwaves through the economy. Missouri Congressman Sam Graves is the ranking Republican on the House Transportation Committee. We absolutely cannot let an entire sector of the economy collapse, and that's exactly what will happen if we do not get this extension done yet. The airline funding is tied to broader Corona virus relief that the White House and Congress cannot agree upon. Here's American airline CEO Doug Parker. I just can't believe that we may not be able to do the right thing. Simply because our elected officials can't come to any sort of compromise agreement were better in that. Still, someone of providing billions Warren taxpayer money doesn't just put off the inevitable as airlines will need to restructure to match the reduced demand. Legislation that would extend payroll support for the airlines was introduced in the Senate this week. But if it isn't passed soon, thousands of airline employees may be out of work One week from today. David Shaper NPR news

A new independent contractor rule

A new independent contractor rule

"We have had a fight going on in the United States between workers and employers for at least a generation. Because it's been about a full generation now. That employers. Started using independent contractors is more and more a part of their regular staffing. And it is something that sometimes works out very well for the worker other times. It's an involuntary thing. You know there are big companies that will lay people off. And then hire them right back through a third party contracting agency and the person comes back with a contractor badge instead of their employees badge and they lose the benefits, lose their whatever job security they had the rest and there are situations like that. But that's not the main action, the main action. has been this never never land. Of when it's right when it's wrong for somebody to be classified as a non employ ten, ninety, nine person independent contractor versus being an employee. And the reality is the courts. Have never been able to come up. With a clear understanding. or a consistent system. To determine when somebody is an employee and when they're an independent contractor. The laws passed in various jurisdictions have been very contentious. There's been an ongoing fight in the state of California. That passed a law that made people like drivers, Ruber and lift. Employees instead of contractors and that's being relegated, and there's going to be a proposition on the ballot. To overturn that and who knows how that's going to play out, and now the US Department of Labor. has weighed in with a new rule. That will actually put the burden of proof. On the non employee. So let's say you're working somewhere. As. A non employee has an independent contractors ten, ninety, nine worker. You will really be in a position where the employers position of making you an independent contractor will be considered to be. The proper win under this proposed rule. In, the last year successfully able to challenge it. So. Essentially you as an independent contractor. Are Not going to effectively be able to challenge the company that's hired you so it means That this is something where the company will. pretty clearly. If, this proposed rule is not overturned later in the courts. And in accompany, Sam not saying employer accompany will be able to have work done by somebody as an icy without worrying as much about later getting their wrist slapped for having somebody as a non employee. As far as. The definitions. As I've said for years based on something written years ago by a university based economist. There's a need in the United States in order for employers to have flexibility in their workforce, but at the same time for people not. To end up in a situation where there are essentially an employee but being treated as a non employee for the. Non Employers convenience that we should have. Instead of this either or. Of Independent, contractor. Or employee with benefits. We should have a third classification that deals with a modern workforce. There would be dependent contractor. So in my mind. Somebody who works for Uber or? Lift. Is a classic example of someone who would be an independent contractor and I don't understand really wet California has tried to do. Because Thank how many times if you ride regularly or did with Uber and left, a driver would be with both had both APPs in whichever one was giving the best pricing or the best bonus at the moment that's who they were driving for. So they really ultimately fit how I would perceive somebody to be an independent contractor on the other hand somebody WHO's working for one particular company? They're typically going to nine corona virus into an office space to work for that company they have pretty much a set shift. For a company to call them an independent contractors. reuss. Is Not really a valid designation. But there are times employer may not want to add to their permanent workforce and that's where this idea of having a third category dependent contractor. Where the employer. Would have the right to treat someone in a way that they can come and go as they wish schedule them up and down and all that. But that the employer would have some responsibility so that individual that they don't now such paying the employer portion of Social Security and Medicare. And potentially even having some level of sick leave. For those independent contractors and that is A. Very different way of looking at this because obviously, this has been too hard from an economic standpoint and from the political process and the legal process. With just having these two systems of independent contractor or employee. The marketplace, the workforce needs some flexibility a needs another way to get there. That would not give the employer. Or the company, an unfair advantage

U.S. Digital Response and the Volunteer Tech Effort

"President Obama's chief data scientist, talks with US Digital response cofounders Jennifer Palka and really knew as well as racially A member of US digital response. You know the place. I wanted to kind of start this conversation with you. Is almost rewinding the clock back and Tio where we were, and it's it's hard to to remember. But You know, it hasn't been that long. Since then. She all came together. March 16th, You know, that was 133 days ago or 19 weeks or on Lee 36.34% of 2020. Not long but to put it in perspective. What was what was coded like at that time. When, when, when? Back in March, 16. You know we had 4500 people who had tested positive in the United States and 88 had died. Six of which were in California. Sam Cisco Bay Area had moved to a shelter in place, and it was three days before a governor Newsome had issued a stay home order for the whole entire state. Ouchy had just warned that the worst is just ahead of us. It was his first time really warning that publicly. And so you know what we think about how much change from the numbers back then to now, I want you to take us back to the initial moment and that that almost that realization Of why jump into this? Why create us digital response when people the numbers weren't as bad as people have thought, What what got you to see this? And and maybe railing? Could you talk to us about how you came together? US digital response. I would say we started off a somewhat simple idea and a bit of a prediction. It was founded by a former U. S deputy chief technology officer is like John He was here and season tech industry veterans more like myself, and we kind of came together with this idea and thinking that With the pandemic. We were going to see government systems and government teams really be stretched beyond their current limits. And knowing all of the wonderful tech really talented tech expertise we have in this country. Is there something there? We can connect the people who have this expertise with the government teams are really going to need that hope to scale beyond problems that we've really never seen. So I think what happened was that was a thesis and we basically gave it a shot. We put a call out for help to technologists and we reached out to government people working in government that we knew their networks and we're basically like Is there something here? Can we provide help? As a team. We've really just been blown away by what we've been able to dio on Both sides. I think we've seen on one hand. We've seen those government services be taxed in a way that's really unprecedented. And in a way that goes way beyond where we made initially thought or on health care. We see systems being affected like Government service is like voting toe accessing benefits in the social safety net in general, and I think we've been overwhelmed by the interest from technologists who raised their hands to help so Probably. Within our first few weeks, we had thousands of technologists all over the country raised their hand sign up online just to say, Hey, I'm here here on my skills. I want to help. And so I would say USTR has served as that bridge that gap kind of bridge that gap between tech and I just want to help and governments in need and when we've really seen that the model works. So we're just about past four months of existence, and we've had over 5500 volunteers sign up to help from all over the country. We've actually taking on over 130 different projects with states and counties and city government teams in a TTE this 1300.27 different states, which kind of really amazing when I think about that. And as I said, it's all happened in just a matter of months. I mean, it's just phenomenal. You know, Raph, why did you join? What? What? What? What you did to this effort You have, like endless job opportunities with your background. Yeah, I was one of the first volunteers with you See, are the newbie on this panel? It's because I was spending all my time Energy doom, strolling and reading the news on DH. Release is worrying about the future on that didn't feel good night background is in Tech Azan Engineering executive You know, like I have worked at a few different startups and developing amazing roller coasters. But the thought experiment that I run when I'm thinking about leaving a group or joining group is if this group of people who succeed beyond their wildest dreams like what would the net impact on the world being In past companies have sometimes thought like I feel pretty neutral office like I love the people and the projects are interesting. But what is the impact? And so I've been on kind of a quest for the past few years to find a way to make That kind of impact it scale back in March. In this tiny thing that you're talking about. There was a lot of energy from the tech community, especially here in surface Go like the hacker news readings that to try and find ways to help and it seemed to me like a lot of the Things that people are working on. We're a little bit like solutions in search of problems like The solutions that are going to move the needle are going to be like something crazy, innovative. It's going to be mass cooperation and distribution and logistics and the kind of things that we infected government for. So a mutual friends talking about USTR, and when I read about it, heard about it. It was like this is this is the way we have to help governments. Let's help them be responsive to the needs. And so I had, like. The man's privilege of having the time of the financial security volunteer for free for a while. And the anxiety to not sit around doing nothing

PS5 Pre-Orders at Walmart Are Acting a Little Strange

"Biggest news of the week, of course. Everything that's Sony. announced. Yesterday, we finally have price released eight, and then a priori sort of clumsily with live last night and cause mass hysteria nationwide. Playstation five is out November twelfth two days after xbox series. The full version is five hundred dollars. Digital version is four hundred dollars I believe we all got our preorder secured I got a disk version from Amazon. Reason being because I have to play on my special edition Blu rays. Where did everyone else? I know Sam got one from like real need. You got one from Walmart. Target best buy and game stops. Yeah. We we have to kind of outsource extra steps because we capture a lot of game play at work and stuff like that, and so we just need extra systems around. So we we usually do a little bulk order like that, but it'd get a bunch of The digital ones are really hard to get and I think the will want them to. We ran a poll today that said about a thirty percent of people still haven't got the system they wanted to order and a, and a bunch of those people said that they wanted to digital one I thought that was pretty cool but we suspect there's very few out there just. Yeah, the. Data shows us that there's about one percent as many digital editions as there are. One, present. Crazy crazy. This is only based off. We can only see like people that clicked on it and deals links and then bought one, and so there's it's possible that none of our readers in particular with the digital edition. But I, don't think that's the case because because they also they also that in like twenty minutes. So it's this mad rush to appear to the consoles them and the dust had settled. We had sold one hundred times more disk consoles, and so I think that Sony is just making like beyond few of them and this is just my speculation. But like I bet the story is going to emerge as the weeks go on digital edition is like very scarce not very common. The only thing we officially know is that they mentioned or Jim Ryan mentioned in an interview that they were producing more for launch, the PS five, and then they did for the PS four I think that was in response to there was a rumor out there that there would be fewer than there were for the PS four or that there would be production issues. So I think they were trying to just kind of. Pr Their way out of that one. But even even before that Bloomberg report this week Sony itself you know launched its mysterious own direct Priori Program said that orders we're going to be very scarce. People are assuming it's going to be hard to find, and if people are following that, that's still the. Emails about that direct purchase from Sony still like we've Kinda grand through all the retailers that could even have prayers although Justin just got a scoop that targets is put up some more preorder issues now maybe. Somehow watching the show live. Yeah the priorities are such a mess and Sony Sony said like and pre orders open tomorrow, and then Walmart said, no, no preorder is open right now. After Walmart did that then the domino's started to fall a target came online and best buy came online and best buy site. Now, twenty four hours later is still wrecked still can't go to best buy DOT COM like Some of this is some of this is Sony's fault in my opinion for not being more organized and buttoned up on Mike. Here's the date and time for preorder is like everyone just relax. But some of this, also like interest in hype for the PS five is unprecedented like I never seen a console that like as had more prelaunch hype and interest than than the PS five. So I think somebody's retailer websites in downtime and stuff would have happened. No matter what. That's usually the way things go and I'm very curious. What is it for for the xbox series xbox series asked they're going up on September twenty second I believe in the daily gave a time eight am. Did they finally reveal the time Today let's get I. Don't know I. Don't know why at the end of their show yesterday couldn't have said you know good live tomorrow at ten. Right because everybody would have north them well, maybe. Maybe that maybe Walmart so pissed off that they're selling a digital console that they are not going to be able to sell more games for the navy. Editors there. So supply constrained like they're gonNA THEY'RE GONNA sell out in a few minutes. So why like what? What's the jockeying till? I go I like. We want people to ordering from us not our archrival target. It's not like you're going to sell every single PS five you get your hands on. So why make it this big fire drill?

Why The Clippers Collapsed

"It felt like something was happening. There is something about the emotion. Past. Was Now you've? Seen. This isn't a story. Be The athlete. It stays with you. There Sam first of all, where are you right now I'm in the NBA bubble a new home away from home inside my hotel room and Casillas number to think twenty seven, twenty two is the room number if anybody wants to. Send packages or love one of the two But yeah, this is this is why these days. How has your bubble experience been so far to be honest committed it's gotten better. The airport experience was felt more stressful than I thought it went I actually had to masks because the end ninety five that US was one of those that does not protect the other person. So I put a cloth masks over that and then I ended up doing facial as well and it was the right move except man that first day travel psychologically I, remember just getting. Into, the hotel room just going Oh, boy that was the longest day of travel. I've ever had because mentally you can't smile at people. You can't talk to people that got me off to a tough start and then it's a nice room but the windows don't open you can't have a window open. There's no balcony unfortunately, the floor when I got here had not been cleaned so I would pay some walk and have bare feet in at the end of the. Day My feet would be black and so that mentally can after four five, six days you're sitting there going man I feel like I'm in this kind of dirty box. The other stuff that the players have talked a lot about is that even if the accommodations are fairly nice, it's just the psychological restriction and lack of freedom and knowing that you cannot go where you want to go. You can go on a walk around the perimeter, but if you go that. Direction and if you even go ten feet past the perimeter, you'll get seven days a quarantine. You know the other stuff also as it's just the interpersonal relationships and the people that everybody left behind you know whether you have a family or a girlfriend or a boyfriend whatever it is all that stuff adds up to a pretty challenging landscape had a productive couple of days. I'm going to carve out a little mental health time and there's a big pick ballgame happening. This afternoon with me in a few writers. I'm getting there. Well. So speaking of all of these challenges as in the bubble, let's talk about this epic meltdown of the team, a lot of people expected to at all the clippers. mcnuggets Oregon on time La. Twenty point lead with two ten remaining. This is absolutely shocking. What went wrong with the La Against Denver I think the broadview for me would be that we always felt like this team was potentially far too transactional if that makes sense. Somebody the other day, use the word mercenaries where it's kind of like I collide Leonard Paul. George have a ton of talent and they looked very good for most of the regular season. But in the bubble, what you saw was a team that was still learning one another in a team that wants the pressure continued to be applied by these other very good playoff teams. They did not have the fabric, the togetherness that connectivity and leadership to get through that. In Game Seven, I sat about twenty feet away from the clippers bench and that meant that I watched a clippers bench that with around seven minutes to go and I think they were down around thirteen at the time they just completely look like they gave up. This is what your best players got to elevate their game. And the clippers have disappointed asphalt. From the field. Two points in the fourth quarter. And frustrated, the stock of the heads went down the talking stopped you had all of a sudden whereas earlier in the game there was a flood of support and clapping from guys on the bench and intensity and passion. You had the golf clap clippers owner Steve bomber feeling like limber fans right now. I am absolutely shocked. Give this Denver Nuggets team a lot of credit. have taken the fight away from the clippers. deservedly. So the leadership thing is what they need to analyse going forward because as amazing Kawhi is he's incredibly quiet. We know that and Paul George I don't think has really ever found his leadership voice maybe that's just not the type of personality he is. But if you compare them to that other team in La, you know you've got a dude and Lebron whose so fogel and raise on Rhonda who sell vocal and I think if I had to pinpoint one of the biggest factors that kind of led to their demise I think it would be that. you and our colleague Yvonne Boo reported on chemistry issues within the clippers back. In January, did you get the sense that those issues were still present inside the bubble? So I don't I wish I had a better pulse on that. You Doc was kind of the main voice that I heard. I went to to other practices where I would listen closely to what doc had to say, and one thing that struck me was he would very candidly talk about how they were still learning each other as a team in the middle of the playoffs I look at the whole picture and I realize we haven't been together we haven't had a lot of time together. So I get it. You had the old guard, the Lou, Williams Pat Beverley mantras hair let group that did some pretty special things and the playoffs last year and was gritty and would play forty eight minutes a night if you wanted them to. Now, they tried to integrate with Choline Paul who came with the very different script and a very different style and combining the old and the new had its fits and starts, and certainly in the end, it seems like a lot of those things out. Cherishing teams are. The more chemistry for this group. D, better. I think that's really the tell at a tape with the season just didn't have enough time together. Paul George has been vocal about the mental toll of being in the bubble a couple of weeks ago. Paul George talked about being in a dark place whatever. The bubble got the best of me. I was just in a dark place. A really wasn't here. I checked out and SAM. You've gotten a taste of what it's like to be an isolation down there. We've just talked about that. Do you feel like Paul George and the clippers were maybe hit harder by the challenges of playing in this Environment Paul for sure I mean I applaud him for his willingness to speak openly about it, and then only he knows where his head was at in the later part of the series but I'll never forget I mean right corner. He shoots that three and it clicks off the backboard George. Why office to side of the backboard left corner he barely draws rim on three George Corner three way off short. Gets the rebound Paul George. Now, just to for ten from downtown they were more shook I don't know how to explain it than any NBA team I've ever seen in a crucial moment. I've never seen anything like that. So I don't know how Paul's State of mind came into play but I do think the clippers had a really hard time getting through all that stuff. So Sam what comes next for the clippers, they have a lot of strong personalities and obviously some divisions between them can they hold it together and be titled Favorites Again Next Year you know to be determined. There's already a little bit of a growing sense or at least questions around the League of are they is there any chance they would think about blowing this out because you got to remember to why Paul signed deals they're up next summer they can get out and and when they came to the clippers. People felt like it was unofficially you know a lifetime contract because those guys have the personal connection to the area but I think we're quickly getting reminded that if the basketball situation is not right and if their work life is negative, then you absolutely can't rule out the possibility of them changing their minds. Year and maybe sounding somewhere else you know the NBA rules are when you have a superstar a year away from free agency YOU'RE GONNA probably have to take those phone calls from other teams if you're not getting assurances and promises from those players that they're not going anywhere. So they've got a lot of questions to have answered and it's going to be painful for them to watch this Lakers nuggets series knowing how close they came.

Former IBM CEO weighs in on TikTok deal

"Dance to find a way to restructure Tic Tacs. U. S operations or face US shutdown is looming with Secretary Venusian, saying it has to be resolved by this weekend, and reports are that Oracle is the partner trying to get that deal done. Welcome. Now, someone who is no stranger to doing big tech deals with Chinese Sam Palmisano was for many years. IBM is President Seo, including when the company's sold. It's PC business. So long go back in 2005. We welcome now back to Bloomberg. Great to have you here, Sam. So I say you've actually been through this process. Give us what you learned from that process that Oracle maybe facing right now. Well, thank you, Devon. Thank you for having me. I mean the process itself. Let me just frame it on the sense that we had a period time What they were better relations relations between the two countries. I mean, China, the United States and China was also in a different phase of their growth strategy, and they were still inclined to create global businesses that could be held in China that could expand Beyond their domestic market, so the circumstances were quite different than they are today. Having said that it's an extremely complicated process is run by Treasury. That's a fair process. They make a recommendation to the president states for approval. But normally at least in our case in the process, it becomes political. In that case, then, basically because we were signed an asset that we believe was just going to be commoditized. It was not a lot of technical differentiation and a PC as you see today, but fundamentally of the various parties on the hill got engaged, and it made it complicated, which meant we had to go through a second review, which prolonged everything, which puts the deal in jeopardy issue. They say time kills deals, but fundamentally, we hung in there and we got approval from both governments would perceive it. It's clear and nothing else is clear. It's clear that whatever Tic Tac has is not commoditized, use your word. Whether it's the algorithms being used, or the date of the personal data, which seemed to be the real center piece of the concern of national security, and therefore this deal is more complicated. How you really protect those data. Is that the big sticking point as far as you can tell I think it isyou know, I really do think it's It's a combination of the algorithms and the personal data on the the amount of the personal data and that's called the uses of the personal data now, their solutions that could be having been shutting people down those sorts of things, and I really do think that There's a pragmatic solution on the table that perhaps both governments could approve. That would at least take one issue off the temple in the U. S China relations and Let me explain what I mean by that, the current what I read anyway. Like you. We only know it's been reported, is that bike dance would maintain majority share of Tic Tac, but they would create a global entity that would be held the United States. Mark will be a technology partner and provide that infrastructure e clown except which makes sense for article on maybe by doing this sort of thing. If you can solve the issues around personal data and the uses of personal data, protect people's privacy that could be resolved. But you still the government approval on both sides and the Chinese also have the equivalent of devious In their in their processes. Well, yeah, it's clear that the Chinese have really a dog in this fight without a doubt. But is it possible from your experience to really for the US government to really be assured that those personal data cannot go back to the Chinese government is I think that was the thing that we're concerned about, right? Well, absolutely, And basically, you know the complicated thing here. We don't have any details. Let's start with the structure itself. The majority owner being bike dances. It's obviously a Chinese company. What's the government's model? Who's on the board of that house? Did any operate? They have passive investor, right you on and on and on, is in a financial deal. There's an operation if it's an operational deal, because we're complicated now as faras protecting the day that exists if it's all housed in the United States. It's somewhat easier, but nonetheless, I mean information's gonna be flying across the world, So you're always gonna run the risk of any us any nation or really any happier being able to get into that kind of an infrastructure. Now, having said that? I mean, I think a partner like Arco or an IBM enterprise tech companies have a lot of experience of protecting data. They do this for themselves and for large enterprises. Probably a better partner than let's say, your traditional consumer tech company might be able to provide. Well, that's exactly my question, because I don't think of oracles being a consumer facing tech business. Unlike a Microsoft or unlike a Google or a Facebook, why does this make sense strategically for Oracle? Oh, I think it actually thie take about clouds in the emerging architecture for computing in the future are co is way behind as it is, I'd be having made the other traditional enterprise players and leaders as we all know where Amazon and catching up his Microsoft, so to them. It gives them I think an entry point with a very large social media company into the infrastructure. I think we'll give them credibility and cloud and a moving into the future. So from that perspective to teach me that makes a heck of a lot of sense. They're going to be a minority investor. It's almost like an outsourcing deal and in the sense that you operate people's assets for them. But you acquired his assets and the acquisition is access will be equity get only is buy bread, so I don't have any insight to that. So you know they'll make an investment. They'll get the outsourcing of the infrastructure that would be House United States. And that will create jobs. I don't know if it's 25,000 or not. I mean, you're the reason why 25,000 to me. Sounds like a large numbers. Because Facebook is bigas. They are only has 75,000 employees. And finally, Sam. What if, In fact, it does not get approved if in the end President Trump says, I don't like this. What does that mean? Maybe for Oracle, but more importantly, for bike dance. Well, I think at the end of the day, I mean, well, they shut them down. I don't know, You know, I mean, I think quite honestly there ways to solve these problems are national security concerns concerns. I can understand that it's really the bigger issue is protecting protecting people's personal information. In fact, the matter is that David that you go all that information's already been hacked. I mean, I know everybody forgets about the OPM Hack and the IRS hack well that there's a ton of personal information's already been hacked his eyes over the world. I assume in China's well there's tons of personal information are ready on the Internet everyday based upon people's user. Behavior and what they do on the Internet. So I mean, I do think it's necessary and it companies need to protect people's privacy in the data, But I'm not sure that this deal represents what's necessary to solve that problem. Fascinating. Thank you so much salmon. Nobody. I'd rather talk to about this than you. That's former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano. More

NRA Issues F Rating To Bugs Bunny For Tying Up Guns Into Pretzel Shape

"In the wake of new. York. Attorney, General, Latisha James's lawsuit against their organization. The powerful National Rifle Association is clapping back. I. Think I'm using that right? Anyway. The Guns Rights Organization today issued an F rating to bugs bunny for tying up guns into Pretzel Shapes. For more I'm joined by OPR senior alcohol tobacco firearms and explosive correspondent Marcy Hammond mercy. What was the NRA's thinking here while the NRA reserved. The F. rating figures at deems is particularly harmful to the rights of gun owners and leadership believes that bugs his long history of firearm destruction qualifies him. Here's how NRA deputy spokesperson Rhonda mcdaniel. Explain their decision time and time. Again, we have seen this radical agitators seeking to curtail the Second Amendment Rights of Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam by twisting their lawfully purchased firearms into a big bowl and the NRA has had enough. Now let's be clear. Bugs is a beloved cultural figure with relatively little political sway is it really in line with Americans interest for a gun lobby to be targeting him round the NRA certainly thinks. So while the organization has been weakened over the years due to lawsuits and falling public opinion they signal, they'll be devoting considerable resources to getting what they call a no. Good Rascal Rabbit here's mcdaniel. Again, if these sort of left distant imitation tactics prevail, we're looking at a future where government agents can just come to your home while you're sleeping and bend your gun into a youth shape or jammed the barrels with carrots coastal elites like bugs bunny may be okay with that outcome, but real Americans will never stand for it mercy. Some have accused the gun right's organization of not caring about tune rights they pushed for decades to deregulate bazookas. Dynamite sticks coming from the ACME company. That's true. But the NRA would point you to their a rating for Marvin, the Martian. For providing what they call a sterling example of responsible gun ownership. Sure. But do they have any other tactics to push back against what they see boxes anti-gun stance while the F. reading a tactic in and of itself of course. But beyond that NRA leadership announced, they'll be launching a public pressure campaign encouraging members to email and tweet bugs bunny to tell him actions are harming the American way of life. They're also lobbying Congress to remove him from television claiming that he's been brainwashing our nation's children with anti-gun propaganda, and if those tactics are unsuccessful, they have plans to draw big angle on his head. To, imagine that this separating didn't sit very well with everyone. That's certainly true. Leslie several gun control groups have spoken out against the move with MOMS demand action launching a new ancient stinker ad campaign targeting the NRA. Responded not personally, but a spokesperson reached out to tell reporters quote meet me. Okay. Then Marcie please keep us updated. That's OPR's Marcy

"Truthfully the only way I could really do that the only way I could truly love that character enough for. Two to Douay with the kind of kindness that it needed to not just toxic on the page was if that were not me if that were not the letter, I because my own journey with self love and self acceptance has been. So fucking vexed that if I was going to make that a story about me. As I am the letter I. I just don't know if I would have been able to love that Sam enough to do the story justice and so making him a character, the narrator in character of this cook, it felt like a way to sort of depersonalize it from me and detached from it. So I could love it the way I would love a friend or a partner or a member of my family. You love her that Sam I could forgive that Sam in a way where I still really struggle to be that kind with myself so. On some level, it was a sort of formal and genre experiment. You know I mean like I think it sort of it exists in this kind of curious place between memorial fiction it sort of auto fiction, but it's it's so much a kind of meditation on. Our sort of memoirs tendency is in the ways in which we self narrative is You know even more than it's a kind of narrative built story or adventure like it's. It's really about those ideas I think more than anything else But. It also felt like it was sort of necessary function of my own work where I knew I was gonNA write myself into a hole if this were. Told from. An I. Told from the letter I and it was only by getting a little bit of distance from that Sam that I, could be kind enough to him to tell the story the right way. Did. It help you find click some sort of closure with that part of your. Psyche or that part of your story fictionalized it a little bit. It did I think it did you know I had this experience with writing my first book at? As. Much as as I. Say I think it was a process of also kind of. Healing, from that because I spent so many years sort of steeped in this you know mess of my own making where I was just like God I am the worst. I, I also had this I had the sense sort of completion or of separateness from the memories and the material where it was like. I had taken what felt like it was a lot of pain and made something useful out of it. That was a sort of service to other people that was sort of at now existed as a thing that had its own kind of engine that was doing its own good in the world you know maybe. Help somebody struggling with addiction feel less alone maybe out someone with a family member who was an addict kind of understand. What it's like to be in a brain like that a little bit more intimately whatever the thing was And I should say I did not write the book to help people I wrote it because I'm. Vain and love attention and you want it to be taken seriously as a writer like it was not this crate heroic noble thing I was like I can just save one life. It'll all be worth it like that. Never crossed my mind I was like pay attention to me but but. I think the the net out of it was that it did help people in and I heard from people that had helped and I was moving those really meaningful for me so. I think. I'd never found writing to be all that Cathartic like I think writing is work and I think good writing is an exercise in craft not in Catharsis on I think you're vomiting up onto the page. What you're rating probably isn't very good and maybe it's like diagnostically helpful or like a good therapy exercise. But like please don't make anyone read that you know what I mean. But I. I did experience a kind of closure with that I acquire. It was like I get to be done with this part of my life like I am not haunted by this part of my life. I don't have it sort of hanging over my head in the same way because I've. Sort of. I'd made something from it that now it gets to be where it no longer belongs to be belongs to the people who are who it belongs to the book belongs to the people who are reading it in having experience with and I've had a similar thing with broken people where you know it's it's very much if my first book was kind of document of my teenage years broken few people feel very much like a documentary, my twentieth and you know a lot of the kind of mistakes I made in my twenties of the the paths I sort of wandered down And it feels like I got to be. Done with that, I guess, and the experience of hearing from readers of knowing the people you know have. have. Seen themselves in this story or or it's resonated with them in some way I think. I, found that to be really freeing for me because it's like okay, this is no longer just my fucked up past that existed solely to teach me lessons that I'm not even doing a very good job of sort of hanging onto or you know kind of implementing in my own life it's like this gets to be something for other people that other people can. Learn from or. It. Can can nestle its way into their heart and make them feel or think about themselves or their worlds a little differently. And that feels like If it feels, it feels useful I think it feels useful. It feels like closure. Before we go have to ask you about your love life as..

My God on the Broken Hearts Club I believe. So either either memory. This is so weird. Memory of being a I'm GONNA date myself here but I when I was A. Teenager when I was probably fourteen, I had a netflix subscription back when Netflix was strictly a DVD delivery service and use this to. Sort of circumvent what otherwise might have been parental supervision an order movies that I would not like I i. would I would have a more challenging time getting access to otherwise and I remember very clearly ordering the broken hearts club from Netflix. And I remember being in possession of that DVD and feeling very, very excited to have this this this queer experience and yet I do not remember the movie at all I don't remember anything about the movie but I remember the exhilaration knowing that I was about to watch the broken hearts club and this is sort of other. Era Maybe shortly after I would painstakingly download pirated episodes of queer as folk off home like Napster Kazaa whatever the like the service was at the time and the files were always so big and I was on dial up. Internet. So take like seventy, two hours to download one. And I was just like save or so so so excited. To get to watch the Zozo. Bernard stuff was like one of those early on gay media things that I was just. So stoked to get my hands on and yet I couldn't tell you one thing about it.

Dave, I forgot to say my favorite review of ours quickly is one that you said it was like. Davis is so charismatic and talented I. Love. Him. Matt. Is We trash and I was like what? No honestly I took that as high praise. Kazak that's that's who I am as my heart. I felt this can't no. I've seen it. I heard. You know who is not we trash Sam Lansky. So without further ado, enjoy. Dave I have to tell you something occasionally. Michael by Michael will do an impression of us of the podcast of an ad on the podcast and it always starts with me be like Dave I am wearing my macworld and underwear and they are so comfortable and then you go matt I gotTa tell you these knock and sweat pants I wear them every day I feel I'm not doing I'm not doing justice. But you get the gist. I get the gist and here's the thing I think the reason why it resonates so deeply throughout the culture but especially within your household is that it's true. It is based in truth I am currently wearing Mack Weldon silver underwear they are comfy. They are they are odor rappelling. They are the Best I love my sweatpants from my socks. No, I. Love My mask from them. Lamelo of it. Yes. I found myself meeting my macworld and more than ever because obviously we're all sort of like living in Loungewear but we want that loungewear be comfortable. We Wanna be able to work out and it and. macworld Weldon yeah I mean I. Will. Place in Heart for the silver underwear and the shirts because they're naturally anti microbial, which means they eliminate odor and Also, if you don't like your first pair of underwear, which isn't going to happen, you can keep it and they'll still refund you no questions asked. That's absolutely correct. They are great for whatever it is. You do I have some Mac Walden swim trunks that I love they have pockets in them. They're constantly checking to make sure I don't don't jump in the pool with my phone in my pocket the folks that McClellan had even created their own totally free loyalty program..

"Well. Dave you. Yes. Sir fired up. And you report started reporting. You told me the you did something shocking. Can you share it with the audience? A bit you. You've been reading reviews an idea. Rene sense us. That's true. Yeah. Did go to the apple podcast page because we have been soliciting five-star reviews. We are literally begging for praise and compliments, which is though it's the name of the game. It's what you have to do. It does help people find the show it really does so it's unseemly but it has to be done long long long right. My book came out. Format book came out. When there were I don't know if I ever told you about this but there's a there's an Amazon program that I forget the name of where people who are who who loved to comment on who loved leave reviews on Amazon. Are Given the opportunity to give advance reviews of books. So. So they check off interests in whatever, and then they get sent advance copies of books and they get to review them, and so some of my early like advance answer views are very good and some were very bad because the people didn't like just weren't interested in the subject matter and then. They were like I don't know the songs that he's talking about. Okay. Okay. So the book is not for you put the shutdown know nobody didn't pay for it. You don't have to review it. And then I would click on the person and literally in one case. All Cat Toys and then my book and the Marquette Toys and then it's like you know somebody wrote a review of some motor oil and you know whatever? They dish and then my book and well like I don't I can't I didn't totally ranch and. I don't know that individual members of Duran Duran's didn't really work for me like I don't fucking do it. We mentioned this now because I then went to my agent and he said never read reviews knife that way lies madness the very good ones I will send you those the only went to need to read everything else. It'll just drive you nuts. So knowing this went apple podcasts, we haven't getting glowing reviews a very pleased about that, but a couple of people have. Left one stars and mentioned the fact that sometimes there are pauses. It's It's a pandemic we're not. It sounds really good as we work with really good people man and I are not in the same room and then when there is a guest that person. Isn't an easy Separate third room, sometimes different in a different building in a different part of town or even the country. I should say Dave's pauses when he started this rant were not because zoom those because he's so exasperated yet nerve of people but yes, it's true. It's like we're. Ryan is like. I it's A. Recording everybody's sound zoom recording and mixing it all together sometimes. Gets, off people freeze. Matt now start try to start talking at the same time, and then it's like then we're too polite about letting the other one go they're going to be positive. They're GONNA be positive. So we are doing our best we are recording resume. That is the way that it goes. Causes. Main. Yes and these interruptions right now that happened I thought you were pausing. The point is I. I am shocked that you were reading views because you have given me the same advice in your agent gave yes. Earlier on, I would read our reviews and inevitably they were all like I Love David. He's really he's areas. God not talks about Jennifer Aniston too much and he has done and it's like. Well, that's that's the premise of the show. So you're just simply standing backs that we on every signing up for that I not insulted by just like okay. So that's how you interpret it but since I don't give talks to you don't have. As an active self care only read a five star ones that rene sensors which brings going to be I'm going to be back to doing that but listen. We we understand occasionally there's GonNa be gaps there's going to be positive. We're this. We're not recording the way that we prefer to record which is across the table from another from one another with guest in the same room. If I'm just GONNA quote Alanis Morissette. Why are you so terrified of silence. Here. Can you handle this? Did you think about your bills, your ex, your deadlines. To die or did you long for the next distraction? I. I the point is it's it's If. An existential spiral. With with Zoom Wag. We're sorry get comfortable with your own silence people. She's on silence. We're all. Have to get there. Eventually you know what I mean that's exactly but but the is big. Let's go back to serve us. We have all I. Really Want is a five star review. Who We got who do we got? Bashful Bravo FAB bashful bravo fan holes as I. loved it. Asheville. Fan because we just. got a very special visitor what's going on? Jonathan Bradley Welsh is Doing, a drop in.

When did you become a stepparent? Like when did that little family become solidified? So as soon as both are I got divorced. I moved to Atlanta I. wanted to be close enough to my wife to where. I could see her if I wanted to. But not so close to where I was in her face was about four hours away from where she lived. When? Her divorce was final, which was about a year after mind, so she took a lot more time to think about her life, in which he wanted, and she wanted to be sure and with kids again. It's so much more complicated and it's a big decision. So when she got divorced, we had a ceremony commitment ceremony. His marriage wasn't legal, but we had like a little thing with just two or three friends of backyard of a friend, and we dressed up and in dresses. Those of us. That gender thing you will not be seeing those pictures. And then the little kids were dressed up with super cute and They got like a little treasure chest with like a promise from us, and they had all super cute, and that was the first day we wanted to make it official for the little kids that first day I spent the night so that it was real to them. It was like a real thing like regardless of whether it was legal. We wanted it to make it. You know to show them like this is what this is a new family starting now. It was so new to me to have these two little kids in my life. There was like a purpose all of a sudden I aside from being in love with my wife and so happy that I was with someone that I really wanted to spend time with all the time. I used to find myself when I was married to my ex husband standing in the middle of the room in Santa, Cruz we were lived. One block from the beach is Santa Cruz is beautiful. And stand in the route like see myself from above like what am I? There's so many things I could do with my day, but just paralyzed, not knowing what my purpose was for the day. Let alone the month or the year like just just lost kind of and that just disappears with little kids. You know exactly what you're supposed to do because there's no time to be sitting in the middle of the room. You know wondering what you're going to do with your day like it's. It was I loved I loved that sense of like well. We didn't get anything done, but Kids are happy. They're fed sleep. They didn't die today. Describing my life now, right Sam! Yeah, there's no. There's no bigger like. Maybe I'll write a book someday. This no time get through the day. Get through this shower. Today exactly like that in there was a silver lining to the divorce part, because the kids went to the dads half the time, and so we got to be a young couple at the same time you know so I, had this whole new family and these two kids in my life that I just instantly decided like that's you know we're? We're one unit everything together, but then at the same time we would have this time. Just the two of us without the kids that was also fantastic and very honeymoon like we can do whatever we want with our day because whenever I'm home. I'm usually not working, so my wife wasn't working, so we would just kind of perfect. Hang out and. It was a kind of perfect in a weird way. Exactly argument for a divorce right there. Yeah Hashtag divorce rocks. My wife Mary and I talk all the time about how we want to be divorced, but we stay together, but there's just an ex husband that takes our kids. Wednesdays, Fridays so we don't know how to make that happen. We just. Friends to be the ankle that takes them. That's what we know. That was the rude awakening with the second batch of kids like Oh, Shit. There's no eggs husband to like. Take them, and we can like. Go travel for a week or something there with us all the time on you now all on. Before you get to the second set of kids, did you? Did you want kids before all this happened Mike will what were your thoughts about? Kids I always I always wanted kids and my husband and I were very careful about not having any. Because, we weren't ready and I used to secretly hope that something would go wrong. You know so that that we didn't have a choice. You know it was. It would just be there, but at the same time I have to say and I always wonder whether there's has something to do with my. Makeup, my my translates I. Being Pregnant always felt wrong to me I always wanted kids, and always felt wrong to be I did not see myself that way. I was trying to visualize it and like no. That's so weird like that. It's just going GONNA look weird. It's GonNa feel weird. So. I had always thought about adopting like that. That would probably be you. Know I want a family one kids in my life, but I just don't see myself I. Don't see myself that way. And said these kids came along and it was Kinda like the perfect. Solution to that. Yeah, it was great i. mean it's it's the parenting is for the stepparents listening out? There I'm sure they can relate. It's very very tough job because. You, you go all in because it's the only way to go, you know you can't. Can't make distinctions you can't you know like you have to emotionally financially just be one hundred percent otherwise. You can't hold back, so you throw your whole self in there? But you're always third wheel. You know where never the decision maker. You're never the final person who says like wait. Wait wait now. That's not how we're going to do it, so you're the.

"I had some quick like relationships very intense friendships, and there is definitely some physical stuff involved when I was a teenager and I always. Attributed to Oh. That's what girls do you know? Girls, being girls, and then I look back like no. That's not girls being girls. That's that's girls having sex. With each other. That's. Crash, yes. That's quite the crust that everyone does that at slumber parties apparently not. Did it come as a shock to your wife that she was gay. She can ahead similar teenage experiences so a couple of boyfriends, but then also a couple of girlfriends kind of made me not and so it was kind of the same thing to where we don't think I had the language to be honest with you. I knew one lesbian, and it was Martina Navratilova and I thought she was awesome. And she was telling people talked so harshly about her. That's what I that's what I really remember I remember where tennis family, my parents were tennis players, and so we would be watching these beautiful matches between her and Chris Evert, and they would talk so harshly about her how she was like a so masculine and unattractive and. Her jaw that was so straight and it looked like a man's face and I didn't really think about it at the time, but it must have really done something to me because why would i? Why would I remember that? Them talking about her in that way and I used to defend her. Because because she was such a great tennis for is that why? Why are you talking about her that she volleys all the time. Why? Why aren't we talking about that? So for some reason I really felt like I had to defend her. Yeah, so lesbian was Martina Navratilova period. There were no other people there were no examples it wasn't. Everyday conversation even when I was in highschool, kissing my friends and Kinda messing around a little, we didn't talk about it as lesbian. We didn't use that word now, so it was. It was so far away in Belgium. Is that right? Yeah? I grew up in Belgium. Think it was like culturally less open. There've in here. I mean not that it was open here then, but do you think? Think that played into it in any way I don't know if Belgium had anything to do with it. Because in general Belgium like gay marriage was legal long before it was legal here and Yeah Dade. Belton is pretty progressive when it comes to things like that, but I do know and I hate during mom under the bus, but she was so happy every time I did anything remotely feminine. or or every time I had a boyfriend, so she must have deep down been really worried that maybe I was lesbian, so everything that happened. That was kind of more normal. In her mind, she was just it was like a celebration and yeah, when boyfriend broke up with me, you know I'm talking like when I was fifteen and it was like a three month. You know relationship. She would lose like ten pounds it's. Like I'd be over at like twenty four hours later, and my mom and my mom had like a one month. Grieving period is just like. So at the time, I didn't really realize how weird that was. You know, but now I'm like all right, so there was definitely some I had two older brothers, and there was pressure for me to be the girl. Yeah I wasn't allowed to play soccer on a team. I was allowed to play in the backyard and in school, but I wasn't allowed to be on a team. How in my parents defense girl soccer in Belgium was not a thing like it is here. It was very very rare, and it was kind of like a little bit of a had a little bit of a low class vibe. But still it was all I wanted to do. Yeah and I wasn't allowed to do it, so there were definitely a message is being sent that I was expected to be a girl and fitting in, and as much as I always thought of myself as being such a an individual and my own personality and make decisions am strong. I must have also been such a pleasure at the same time. That's what I think. Now looking back like I was really thinking, I was kind of like breaking barriers in some way, and then at the same time I was really really still trying to fit in as. Deep. Cultural significance like you bring up the Martina story like I. Remember all of the announcers. All of the fans everyone was rooting against Martina all the time. And so there's that subtle undercurrent to not just coming from your family's coming from socially. That like that's the person you don't WanNa. Be Yes, the new. That's so weird. Yeah, that's so weird that that people were uncomfortable with her yeah! Overpowered everything else about her? And at that time it wasn't the way people weren't training the way they do now like you know the like. They weren't as muscular and size like it was just this. There's this masculinity to her that people were very uncomfortable with yeah, and and I I so hope and I know it's changing, but there's still so much work to be done, and that's I. think that's one of the most exciting things about. This new generation of young kids that don't care about gender that much anymore and don't care about fitting in that much. We, look at Serena Williams now and her power celebrated. You know who she is so strong, and if she I mean if she had played tennis in that era. I don't even know what people would have been saying about. It wouldn't even have let her letter yet. I know I know so i. like that idea where it's definitely changing. People are celebrating individuality and women that different are a little different present differently so much has changed again so much work to be done, but compared to when I was growing up. It's amazing. How much changed? So Jamie.

"Feel it's GonNa feel like a little less celebratory? No, we have no bake shop to make it virtual wall pride. You know what I noticed have in the suburbs.

They had him for like two months, but it wasn't right or something. You know it started in March when we started this whole fiasco, but I'm going to call them all rainbow flags kids.

I've been traveling for all Japan for the last year or so. I'm down for anything again. I'm just a I focus right now. More will do in Pittsburgh it's weird. I never thought I'd see that point especially at thirty years old. I'm in the best shape of my life. I'm doing more than I've ever done in the wrestling ring. I've enjoying it once again and it's funny to think that you know in a sense. I'm Kinda just take care myself a man. That's that's a good way to beat and I got a question that goes along with that but we've got another question in the live feed gentle gentle act. I don't know if it's Geno or Gino. Donald what the hell it is but general black. Can you teach people how to wrestle? I no I can't if I could be totally honest. I think more qualified to be a teacher at ninety nine percent of professional wrestling coaches. But I refuse to do it because I don't think I ready. I think too. Many people exploited pro wrestling professional wrestling. Doesn't owe anybody anything and the quick fixes. I never made it. I'm not famous. I don't have any money. I'll open a wrestling school. I have never been more convinced that those who can't do teats than and pro wrestling so yes I could teach will. I know I can respect that. So my question for you as you said that. You're you're based out of Pittsburgh. Now you're doing all your stuff out of Pittsburgh. What made you make the change? Was it just wanted to be back around home more because I know you were doing stuff with all Japan and Sam L. L. and all that. So what made you want to come back to the states? I had to run away from my ex girlfriend.

"But if someone in the audience has of a Ferrari F f and they want to sell to me for sixty cents on the dollar. Let's talk. Okay. Great. Okay. Sam. Sam harris. Austin fact, chided dizzy, I mean, I guess we'll tell our listeners like we could we could talk for seven hours on in. This fact, check about stuff that was sad. And I'm not gonna do that. I picked a few things that we can talk about that. I thought maybe needed saying after listening. There's a lot of may be could be considered controversial opinions, and I'm not going to pick apart every single one. Okay. So. Okay. Well, I you said four out of five guests of ours. We site Sam exaggeration. I didn't luck. Yeah. That's an exaggerating is probably an exaggeration at the beginning. Yes. Tapered off a little bit. Because we've we also heard about all these people. But what's interesting is even when I'm not actually saying Sam, but I'm talking about something. Paul bloom wrote about empathy or I'm talking about something Brett Weinstein said or on talking about even Yuval Harari, they came from his podcast. So even if I don't say Sam, and I just go do you heard this, Paul bloom thing, really, I'm talking, you know, I got that from SAM's cast. That is true. Okay. So he mentioned honor killings, and he said. I don't actually know what he said the percentage was or maybe just a high percentage of Islam believes that we that honor killings are okay. And the Washington Post in pew in two thousand thirteen did a survey and in fourteen of the twenty three countries where the question was asked at least half say honor killings are never justified when a woman stands accused similarly at least half in fifteen of twenty three countries. Say honor killings of accused men are never justified in only two countries Afghantistan in Iraq. Do majorities say honor killings of women are often or sometimes justified. But you know, it's interesting is it almost declares your your position on this topic. Even the way that was just said, which is to say they found that half of people don't believe in honor killings. You could also then say half of people believe. In honor killings, which is very dressed of it though. That's what it's saying into it. It's pointing out the countries in which the majority does. But even even if half of population believes that that's very troubling of a country. Yeah. It is. These are also like well, my take away from this. When I looked at the whole last with. Yeah. The country's the more modern countries have have small number that really troubled war ridden countries have a high number met to me was clear in looking at that list. That was my takeaway. I mean, it's scary and bad incredibly, I guess, the I think this is what gets frustrating for me in these conversations and probably for other people is and I think it's largely would Sam gets frustrated with. Is. Ee you have to knowledge this large amount of people that have these views. That's just a statistical fact now the more important thing that no one ever gets to. It's like the left wants to deny the less. Big messages will the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful and wonderful, and that's true. Absolutely. But then you read stuff like this, and you have to acknowledge a pretty good hefty amount of people do believe in honor killings. That's troubling. That's that's a big concern..

"She said on professional, she had an opinion there. She leveled another fighter there, a fellow champion or or former chain because she's not in that fraternity anymore. So I don't know. Sometimes I think maybe the champs do wanna look out for each other. It's tough everywhere to scrutinize and things like that. But then there's other times where it's like, man, that's your job. You know, the guy asked you question, do you really need to thump them back that? I don't know. I don't know. The history of that guy could be that he's a jerk, but but I thought at that moment, all that was unnecessary. What he could have done was go. I'm okay. And just stayed back and but maybe a young guy. Yeah, we can all agree on that. And I feel like some of us have put in enough time where even if we are out of line, sometimes the fighter knows you enough in your reputation follows you enough to that fighter. We'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Maybe give you a path. In this case, she wasn't able to do that. He was young guy. He d learned your lesson in front of a lot of people.
