Mortal Combat Movie Trailer Out Now
"Few weeks we talked about so many Hollywood video game, rumors will start to lose track. It's sonic to the last of us borderlands. But now we are looking down the barrel of a real movie trailer. No rumors, no leaks. Just the real thing. Robbie, can you tell me about the mortal combat model? That's right. Mortal Kombat. Look, regardless of what you guys think I still hold the 19 nineties Mortal Kombat movie the first one As one of the best video game adaptations of all time. Willkommen annihilation. Not so much. We finally have a trailer for the new Mortal Kombat, and it looks good. So before we talk about it weird beard Let's take a listen first learned about this seven years ago on a mission in Brazil to capture a wanted fugitive. Way got their torch around unit in second year. It's hard to be superhuman abilities just shattered off Jackson's arms. It had the same way you do cold. It's a birthmark. What do you mean? He was born with it? Charcoal means you've been chosen the first mark invitation. I'm not super virus all over the world. Reference a great tournament. Champions Dragon market. I think it's an invitation to life or something known. Wow as mortal Kombat. Pretty graphic for a trailer. Special effects look Awesome. Your trumpets. I'm Sonia. That's okay. No, I'm okay. I could have done with Kane Oi Laser, though. I love all right at the feet of Earth is in our hands. How many of my people we put in the ground? You will not fail. So I'm thinking, Wow, Goro even when it comes to making a good video game movie games that don't give you a lot of story toe work with are the best. So I think that's why the first Mortal Kombat worked, and I think that's why this one can work. They have all the things that we expect from a mortal Kombat to be in there. Be on Lee. Two issues that I have is the main character. Uh, Cole Young. Okay, so let's let's talk about this. If you haven't seen the very first Mortal Kombat movie, right where you've never played it more. Let's start with if you've never played a Mortal Kombat game. Mortal Kombat doesn't have a main character there. You know, it's just It's just a bunch of characters they come to The Mortal Kombat beyond their own little back story, and and you fight toe live basically so the fact that instead of using a character within the mythos whatever they're coming up with some Original one. Well, that's because in the original movie they actually cast Luke hang memorably as like the main character of the movie. There's nothing wrong with that, though, but that is the point. It's a change. Now you go into this new movie where they've essentially created a new character. It's not somebody that's a Mortal Kombat character. It's not somebody that they've talked about before. Not a good look for a video game movies they Hey, we're going to start by creating a brand new character who's not in the game. It sounds like a really bad decision could work will see. But then the other thing that I'm worried about. Is this whole. Oh, if you have the birth Mark. That's your invitation to it. The whole idea of destiny. What That tells me is the first half of the movie is gonna be cold being like, Oh, but I don't want to. I don't want to do this. I don't believe in destiny and kind of fighting back against it before he finally decides. Okay. I guess I'll go fight for the world. All of this movie needs to do is have the same sort of action that we saw in the trailer through the whole thing. We want to see blood. We want to see fatalities. We want to see moral combat. This is a really should be a really easy video game movie. To make work, so we'll see if they're able. But why would you
Etsy Crushes Estimates, Revenue More than Doubling
"Nc blowing past earnings expectations revenue more than doubling in the most recent quarter online retailer. One of the big pandemic winter shares up more than three hundred percent over the past year. And it's the biggest premarket gain earned the snp right now joining us to talk about the quarter and the outlook ahead job. Silverman ceo of esi. Josh it's great to see you this morning. You just had this blowout quarter. Let's talk about what you think. The future looks like and i ask in large part because i think we're all hoping that we're about to get into a post pandemic world that may bode well for some and may bode well for others. That's right well. Twenty twenty was a spectacular year for it was a time when circumstance met preparedness and millions and millions of people discovered for the first time or maybe rediscovered at sea At a time when they hadn't been in a long time and she's the kind of business that gets better as it gets bigger So more buyers means more sellers more sellers more buyers which makes the marketplace a whole lot better so to your point You know none of us really know what twenty twenty one brings. None of us have a crystal ball. But if i look at Twenty twenty ecommerce grew at an the crazy rate. Ecommerce grew it over forty percent year-on-year and yet oetzi grew two and a half times the rate of commerce. So i don't know what e commerce is going to do in twenty twenty one. But but i hope and believe that we'll be able to continue to outpace ecommerce overall in terms. Though of the way you think the shopping experience takes place you think by default the growth. You think i mean your how. What's the chance of the same kind of growth next year for example. Well i on the On the bull side of people we tend to forget. There's a lot of people even in twenty nine thousand nine who star shopped almost exclusively amal. Who never shopped online. So millions of people started shopping online and twenty twenty. Who hadn't before and they they loved it. It was convenient and interesting. And so we've brought a lot of people into e commerce warrant there before i'm the bear side during the pandemic can't spend on travel. They can't spend on dining so they're spending a disproportionate share of wallet retail and when they're spending on retail they go to the mall so they're spending a disproportionate amount on e commerce. So what. i don't know what. I don't know that any of us know is what's going to happen to consumer spending overall as you know as as restrictions ease what i do know though is if look over the long term if you're looking at twenty twenty two twenty twenty three and beyond ecommerce bigger and stronger and will be bigger and stronger. I believe as a result. Josh as you know. Musk tweeted on january twenty six. I hope you've saved the tweet. I kinda love at see. How much was that tweet worth. You think this quarter trades on the fundamentals and has always traded on the fundamental so at the time that he sent that tweet. Oetzi stock price went up. I forget the amount. But i think we gained a billion and a half two billion dollars market at four two hours and then the stock price settled right back down to where it started before the tweeting by the way. He's tweeting about the fact that he loves the marketplace tweeting about a product that he bought for his dog. Which which i love. But you know we trade on the fundamentals and i think it's so important that we keep talking about the fundamentals and i hope that's always traits on the fundamentals. Not on some story. That's that's other than that. You thinking at all about accepting bitcoin not right now i'm holder. I've held bitcoin for six or seven years. Now i think on the theory that i think it can be an interesting store of value. It could be an interesting tender. Some david need a whole lot more people to buy an own it before. I think it's really useful for people as as a and then. Finally i wanted to ask you about how you see the marketplace world versus the website or store world given the successive shoplifting. By how many of you are small. Businesses are both on on your service and also developing their own. And what does that mix look like for you know. Many of our sellers will also have their own shop. The challenges creating your own shop today is is is creating a lemonade. Stand in the desert right. It's harder and harder for an individual site to rise above the noise and become a brand that people can remember all the trends. I see is you know. We're consolidating fewer and fewer large e commerce platforms. And that's because the human brain can only remember somebody brands. We can only keep four five six eight brands in mind for everything else. We've got to go to google and we'd better go to facebook and if you're downstream google facebook then they're going to be the ones who get all of the economics so i don't think it's likely that there's going to be two billion thriving individual places to go buy things and years from now. I think there's going to be a handful. So the job of that seeing is to create a brand that stands for something that's meaningful and all of our sellers as a result
WIRED Correspondent Adam Rogers Talks 'Wild Tech' Built Into Perseverance
"So adam. Let's start with a couple of notable things about this rover one. It's collecting and to you. Just wrote a story on wired dot com this week about the cameras on perseverance and how they actually perceive imagery much differently than we do. Tell us about this. And why this is significant for this mission will. there's something almost philosophical. You have to address if you're going to send not people to explore another planet but robots which is you're trying to acquire like sensory information and some of that some of that can be quantified can be sent back as data. You know the numbers for certain for certain analyses that you can send an instrument to do and i. I can talk about some of that but some of it. Is you want to send a robot that can look at stuff that can hear stuff in this case they can sense this world. And then that that information through the sensory organs the mechanical sensor organs the technology. That you send the microphones and the cameras and the sensors instruments and then it has to get home has to get back to us somehow. Us not wired reporters but jet propulsion laboratory and then the whole vast team of humans who process all of that through their own machinery and then it becomes something that they can that they can look at. Its this this. Arc of how data becomes information and then becomes knowledge so we humans send these robots to mars to some extent to learn how to send better robots to mars a lot of the instruments on perseverance. That's the rover that's there now are versions of instruments that went up on other missions and now they kind of the scientists that jpl and are all these universities. Nasa know how to make them work to do more what they wanna do which is to look at their surroundings in ways that that we humans would would. Would i be able to identify easily as looking at stuff to to see things in the colors that human is also see we were standing there and also to look at them multispectral hyperspace literally and other parts of the electric spectrum that human i wouldn't perceive but the eyes of this rover is in scare quotes that i'm making on a on a screen even though this audio medium so that's not helpful at all. The eyes of this rover can see into the little bit into the ultraviolet partway into the infrared. And and also can see x-rays and have an are using a laser project light outward to obliterate some bits of rock. And see what what happens when you do it. And to listen with microphones that that might be more sensitive than human ear. Then all of those things get get reduced transformed or changed in some way into meaningful knowledge so that we can understand more about what what's on this other planet where humans have never been but humans have sent a lot of our stuff. You're saying that each brand has gone up tomorrow. At least the ones that we have had progressively better technology on them with each version. And i think it's kind of interesting that this rover that just went up now. Perseverance is essentially the first rover of the iphone era. Curiosity launched in two thousand eleven and it was designed for a period of five or six seven years before that so the imaging technology on it is very representational of like that time in imaging technology the imaging technology that we have now and the imaging technology that we have on. Perseverance is pardon the pun astronomically better than the tech that we had ten years ago. I mean if you think about like how bad your instagram photos. Were in two thousand eleven. And how fantastic they can be now. You can see just like as far as mobile technology goes and just imaging sensors. The leap has been huge. That's a it's a really interesting observation. I think that's right. Although i will also say that like one of the one of the instruments that i wrote about is called the masked kim z. And so it's this. This binocular camera to cameras linked together left and right eye on top of the tower. That's on the rover so sits up a little. Bit high zina's presume because there was a mass cam on curiosity the z. Has zoom capability and it does a bunch of stuff. It's there to identify targets of interesting scientific potentially interesting scientific value and also to be able to look around and navigation and take pictures and do a whole bunch of other stuff. The the ccd the charge coupled device the optical sensor the to in mass are off the shelf kodak cds and they have the they have in front of them the bear pattern of pixels. The probably gonna get this wrong but like the red green blue. I think that that's that would be familiar. That if you if you could look into your phone you would see it. And then mass games does what. The experiment instrument is take advantage of some capabilities that our phone cameras. Don't really do to do much more. Because because the also can see into the infrared a bit and so if you put the right filters in front of them you can do even more science with them so there is some sense that we send up a camera. That would be the same camera that a lot of people have in their pockets right now sitting on their sitting on their desk. I can get sort of derivative about but there's something important i think in the pictures that are starting to come back already. That include parts of the rover itself and people will describe those as celsius as mars selfie camera taking pictures of itself and and nasa among all agencies is very very good at At its own promotional work saying like. Here's the thing. Here's the picture of the thing we're doing. There are pictures. There's video of the landing which was dramatic but also like the video of the landing. Is there to video of the landing has engineering value but also publicity value. But but i think the calling it. A selfie also includes the recognition of the the. It's not personal because of course it's not a person of the machine hood of the individuality of the humanness of the technology that that we sent that has to do a thing there. That's doing technological work and and seeing mars through a kind of filter that's akin to but slightly different than the filters that if mike if you took that billionaire ticket up tomorrow how you would see through the visor of your of your back suit
OA466: Opening Arguments Blocked in Australia?!
"As the people of georgia helped deliver both the presidency and the senate to the democrats. This past election cycle defying the perception that the state was a republican stronghold after stacey. Abrams is contentious loss. In the two thousand eighteen race for governor the effort to stop voter suppression in the state and mobilize black voters ramped up as a result. Black georgians showed up to the polls in droves this past election cycle and turned the state blew one of the activists responsible for this term is latasha brown a political strategist. Who's been working at the intersection of social justice and political empowerment for decades. Latasha is the co founder of the black voters matter fund and bv 'em capacity building institute a movement to expand voter access and build power for black americans particularly in the south. She joins us today to discuss the impact of expanding the right to vote and building a more diverse and inclusive future for the south latasha. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me molly. I'm happy to be here. Between mobilizing i. For the presidential election and then for a hugely consequential senate runoff election all in the middle of a global pandemic. I feel like is it safe to say that you had a very busy twenty twenty. How are you have. You had a chance to relax a little bit. what are you saying. It's twenty twenty. It's just been a continuum. It seems like it's been a continual. It is different so i will say i do think that we got a little breathing room and it's not as intense. I think we're starting to fine or at least i am starting to find at least somewhat of a rhythm of how to operate in these circumstances how to give it but we're still in the midst of a global pandemic. We are certainly a different kind of i think political landscape but the fight isn't over matter of fact in some ways it has intensified. You know that whenever there has been progress in this country politically. There's always been backlash and so what we're seeing right now. All across the south and particularly in places like georgia. We're seeing the state. Legislators take up these bills to actually prevent black voters disenfranchised black voters and make it difficult for voters to participate in the process. Given what we were able to accomplish. And so when i think about twenty twenty i will say yes. Twenty twenty in some ways is over but there is a continuum of work that we're doing related to that take a break. I don't know if i've been able to take a fall. Rake i will say i dig into take a breather rights i was able to take a breather and was able to take a week off and really be able to do some kind of i'm not gonna say calming down because i had to sneak in work time to but nevertheless we are in a different phase of the work and i'm really happy and proud of the work that we were able to do in twenty twenty and i tell people i don't know if we're going to remember what happened in twenty fourteen or twenty eighteen twenty. Nineteen what i know for sure. War is that all of the history books will make reference to twenty twenty so was a very significant year. But i also think that twenty twenty one is showing itself that it will also be significant year as well particularly as we're talking about what governance means. Could you tell us a little bit about how you and your organization played a role in twenty twenty. How did you play a part in the history. Books will hopefully report back so part of our organization. When i'm really proud of is while we saw a lot of the work manifest in twenty twenty. This has been a work in progress. I've worked in the region in the south around power building for the last twenty seven years of my life. I long cliff all right. Who's the other co founder of black voters matter and so there's is so interested over two and a half decades. There are different strategies that we've used and worked to try to perfect or really to help support our organizing work and so two thousand sixteen. We both felt it was the opportunity to come together and really create an organization that we could bring some of those best practices together round power building and that ultimately if we were going to break up this kind of structural racism this backwards. What we felt was the precursor for fascism in this country. That fundamentally you could not do that without literally recognizing the role that many of the legislators and the power base in the south play in protecting facilitating trump's power and some of the destruction that we see and some of the structural racism that we see in legislation so we created an organization two thousand and sixteen with the idea that we would build power and the way that we would do that is a couple of ways one that we would certainly address the issue that the south is not. I say this all the time in the south is not read is just been under invested. You know. I think we have shown we have the receipts to show that when you are able to make an investment over time when you able to build out the ecosystem and help tap into the capacity that exists. We can make a difference and so one of our first races before even georgia. That people know us is that we were one of the groups that worked in the two thousand seventeen specially us senate race which was in many ways. People thought it was just an impossible. Long and in some ways it was because in the state of alabama. That's a deeply deeply deeply conservative reactionary right state and so to be able to tap into the opportunity that existed in that year. We want it. We were able to. Our strategy and our strategy was how to connect role communities and rule organizations with urban work.
Chicago White Sox star Tim Anderson backs new manager Tony La Russa after 1-on-1 meeting
"So the teams are rolling every wants having calls every day players out and there are still a number of unsigned free agents. How about this one. Scott casimir has agreed to terms with the san francisco giants on a minor league deal. He has not pitched in the big leagues since two thousand sixteen. He's thirty seven years old.

interview with Jessica Lessin
"Jessica thank you for joining me and welcome to skin from the couch. Thanks for having me carly. I love listening to this podcast. So i'm thrilled to be here. I was saying just as you got kinda miked up. Its feels very weird to be on the other side of interviewing journalists like you but we're going to jump into it which is first question. I'm a standard question. Skim your resume. I wanted to be a reporter For as long as i can remember and had a series of internships starting in high school at my local newspaper where i wrote about why there were so many nail salons and how they could all stay in business so didn't really have a sense of supply and demand back then but was interested in in poking my nose around i then interned at the associated press the boston globe and the wall street journal and clung to that internship so that they would not let me leave the building and convince them to hire me so i worked as a tech reporter at the journal for eight years covering everything from the rise of online video to apple to google yahoo the rise of the internet. If you will that be took me out to san francisco and then after eight years at the journal i loved covering the tech industry and it seemed to me. That tac was disrupting news in very very fundamental ways most significantly. It was getting publishers obsessed with online advertising and traffic in a way that i felt was really lowering. The quality of news content and so i launched the information as a subscription business to swing back to quality over quantity and i guess seven years in We have one of the largest newsrooms of tech reporters around the world in her breaking major stories every day. We're going to dig into so much of that. But i'm curious. What would people be surprised to learn about you. I think probably many many things. But probably that i never ever ever thought i was going to start a company i actually remember grousing to my husband. You know maybe a decade ago. Why is everyone leaving. Big company jobs to start a company in the world be better if they were adding their talents and energies sort of into the traditional system. So i i. I think even wrote a story at the journal about like you know. There are too many entrepreneurs or something to that vein but you know lo and behold eventually you catch the edge and i think the world is just made starting a company so i was gonna say appealing but as you know carly times is quite tough Be anything appealing but it just felt like there was a huge opportunity and i went for it but it was quite a swing from sort of being very down on entrepreneurship to becoming one. You mentioned in your skin of your bio that you began your journalism career at a young age and went onto the crimson while. You're harvard We're able to turn internship into a job at the journal. I think that the one of the most popular questions that we get asked. How do i turn my internship into the full-time. What is your advice on how to do that. Don't leave the buildings that was really my advice and so i kind of lucked out. Because i was working on this big project. It was on the salary data that the government was putting out it a once in every year report about what was having to wages across a huge number of jobs and i had planned a really big feature with my editor on this and they push back the release date and so i said i i got it right this story you know you don't wanna miss this big feature in the journal you had an approval process for big features in the had been approved and all of that and so you know my internship was supposed to be up august whatever. The data was coming out first week in september and i just sort of made the case to literally extend my security badge access
Covid long-haulers turn to Seattle rehab clinic
"The corona virus arrived in the seattle area about a year ago. Some who got cova early on are still suffering. The people who still feel the effects of the disease months after their initial diagnosis are called long. Haulers reporter eilly show. Neil has more now on wear long haulers in the seattle area are turning to for care. Donna lawson is forty seven years old. I met her in the backyard of the house. She shares with her husband and teenage daughter in west seattle. I'm a designer artist. In a mother lawson got code back in march at the very beginning of the pandemic at first it seemed to be a mild case. But then things got worse in. May she was hospitalized for three days with low blood oxygen and when she got home she didn't get better. My legs feel like jello. All the time very very weak on really bad days and bad times. I'm trudging through. Concrete is what it feels like or like their cinderblocks literally on my feet or magnets pulling me to the ground. los and says she can't concentrate a remember things. She's tired all the time and no longer has the energy to make art or volunteer at her daughter's school. She says on a good day she's eighty percent of her old self for a few hours other days. She can't get out of bed. That gets me really choked up. Who knows if. I'll be myself again. I'm usually a pretty confident person. I really love helping people. And i love spreading joy. It's really hard to do that when you don't feel joy about ten percent of people who get covid still have at least one symptom two months after their diagnosis more women than men suffer from. What's being called locking cova. They have a broad range of symptoms from shortness of breath to trouble sleeping or concentrating to depression or anxiety. Lawson was never able to get a cova test because there weren't many available at the beginning of the pandemic so she says throughout her illness. Some doctors haven't believed that her symptoms are due to long cove. It when you have medical professionals poo poo what you're saying you can't help but wonder if you're crazy person. If the reason lawson and other long haulers have struggled to find care is that doctors don't fully understand long cove it yet when they run standard tests on long haulers most results come back negative exact mechanisms yet some of the basic science still pending and that will be helpful for guiding treatments. Aaron bananas a rehab physician at the university of washington's harborview medical center. He says researchers are still trying to figure out exactly what causes long cova loose suspicion that this may be a more of an immunologic response in patients or some of the micro-vascular pox insults that are occurring. Maybe causing some of the brain fog and other words long hunters immune systems could still be an overdrive or maybe their brains are still suffering from being deprived of oxygen pandemic worked with covid patients after they were released from the icu. But over time it became clear. It's not just the patients that have been hospitalized in who are very sick that are having long term symptoms and we're seeing this even in patients who may have been sick at home but now three months later are still struggling. That's why been now started a clinic. At harborview specifically serves cova. Long haulers. It's one of many such clinics that are popping up across the country to clinic. I if you want clinic part. Medical office part gym with treadmills parallel bars and other equipment to help patients build back strength and the ability to walk but now seems to know everyone here here he is. I've been good. How are you handsome every day. Now and his team are experts in rehab medicine. They help patients with their recovery and coordinate their complex care but now says his goal is to help his patients get back to whatever they were doing before they got sick. Got a law in our critical illness. Survivors that yeah. Their their heart is still beating and their breathing but everything that they valued and was meaningful in their life is now lost so i think our hope is that just wanna make sure were addressing getting or covert patients as much life as boston so far. This is the only clinic like this in the region. So it serves patients from oregon alaskan idaho as well as washington but now says at first. There was only a trickle of patients. But now the clinic gets forty new patients every week.

Mysterious Tourist Resort Deaths
"The dominican republic is a jewel floating in the caribbean visitors to the island. Come looking for paradise in its verdant rainforests and white sand beaches more often than not they find it and then they tell their friends. Tourism is a massive industry in the dominican republic. In fact around twenty percent of the nation's gross domestic product comes from foreign visitors though the population numbers just ten million people dominicans. Welcome more than six million vacationers every year. Almost half of them come from the united states in two thousand eighteen. A disturbing trend began among the tourists. One that would go unnoticed for almost a year. Someone or something was killing them in june that year a fifty one year old. Pennsylvania resident named yvette monet export on her first vacation in years. Yvette was excited to finally relax at the luxurious by principal resort in punta cana. Little did she know it would be her final holiday. One evening event in her fiance had a drink from their room's minibar before going to bed in the middle of the night her partner hurting gurgling sound thinking nothing of it he turned over and went back to sleep but when he woke he that was dead. Yvette was just the first in a string of tragedies. The following month of forty five year old man named david harrison traveled to the dominican with his wife. Dawn they state at a different resort. But like yvette. David seemingly had a target on his back one day. He returned from snorkeling saying he felt unwell after he dawn fell asleep. The unthinkable happened. David woke in a cold sweat. Unable to move his wife tried to get help but it was too late. David had suffered a heart attack which caused his lungs to fill with fluids. I condition known as pulmonary dima. He didn't survive as two thousand. Eighteen ended it. Seemed like yvette. And david were to random fatalities but in early two thousand nineteen four. More people died seventy eight year old jerry current in january thirty one year old tracy jerome gesture junior in march and sixty five year old john corcoran and sixty seven year. Old robert wallace. In april each of these tragedies were reported to the authorities but no one made any connection between them until forty one year old miranda shop werner on may twenty fifth two thousand nineteen miranda arrived at the bahia principe bougainville resort with her husband. Dan the getaway was to celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary. They hadn't been in their room. Long maranda took a drink from the mini bar. But after her first sip she suddenly convulsed she cried out for her husband and fell backwards onto the bed where she writhed in agony before passing out. Dan swiftly called the paramedics. Dan himself was a doctor. So he searched for miranda's polls he could barely feel it. He administered cpr until the emt's arrived. But neither he nor the medics could revive her. Miranda was declared dead on the scene the victim of a heart attack though miranda did have a history of cardiac issues. Her relatives back in pennsylvania had doubts as to whether they had killed her and their suspicion grew when they learned she had taken a drink from the mini bar right before collapsing. They took it as evidence that something else was a foot in just five days later it seemed they were proven right on may thirtieth at the bahia principe romana hotel staff entered a room to clean. They found two guests lying on the floor unresponsive. The housekeepers rushed to get help but it was too late. The couple was already long dead. The resort identified the bodies as sixty three year. Old edward homes and forty nine year old. Cynthia day of maryland. The pair had been scheduled to check out earlier that day. An autopsy revealed they had eerily died from the same cause as david harrison pulmonary dima. All three were cardiac related deaths in which fluid filled their lungs. But in edward and cynthia's case no one called for help. If their hearts gave out at different times one of them should have been able to dial reception but there was no call indicating the two people suffered identical heart attacks at the exact same moment with three dead guests in under a week. The bahia principe chain realized they needed to get ahead of the press. The hotel company released a statement stressing that they were doing everything they could to help the families of the deceased and they would cooperate with local authorities to determine if there was any link between their deaths

CBS is Janet Shamlan. Tonight. Texan stuck with sky high electric bills like Meggett O'Neill, a new mom experiencing sticker shock. I'm crying in bed going. I don't know what we're gonna do. She was using gritty for her electricity. Ah, variable rate company that charged her for $4500 last week. For five days of power. You knew, though, that the rates could go off. I did because they fluctuate every day, but some days it's 35 cents some days. It's 98 cents. I didn't think that it would be $1400 a day. I didn't even know that was possible. Anticipating a price spike. The company did encourage customers to switch providers. But for O'Neal and others, it was too late. I'm home alone with my two kids, and my ceiling just caved in in their bedroom. I don't know what to do A different nightmare for Tabatha Charlton.

Writing About Illness Without Platitudes
"Silica. Juha joins us now from rural new jersey. Her first book is called between two kingdoms. A memoir of a life interrupted salako. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me camera. So this book came out originally. I believe from a blog that you did for the new york times. Called life interrupted key. Start with how that blogger came about and what it was about through. I received a diagnosis of leukemia. Was twenty two and in those early weeks of being in the hospital and going q. I had all kinds of grand ambitions about whatever's going to do with the strange time on bedrest. I had packed a suitcase. Full of books including were and peace was on my bedside table but you know as the treatment can and and the side effects started to set an i had so little energy i never read a single one of those books and a kind of despair began to sink in as i realized that my life had bifurcated the resist before a diagnosis. This after and i really struggled to figure out what i could possibly do from the confines of a hospital room and so i returned to something. I've always leaned on in difficult times. Just keeping a journal. And i wrote every day. I had made this commitment to myself. An didn't matter how good the quality of the writing was or how long it was sometimes over a couple of sentences. Sometimes just a word occasional rain the f. word but i think i was trying to make sense of the circumstances i'd found myself an and over the course of keeping that journal turned a kind of reporters notebook. I'd had aspirations of becoming a foreign correspondent the for my diagnosis and blah. I couldn't travel or interview. Anyone really leave my hospital room bubble. I began to report from the frontlines of my hospital bed on a very different kind of conflict zone and that journal and became the source material for the life. Intrepid calm and i was interested not just in kind of excavating the experience of us but thinking through the way in which age impacts how we experienced major relation tractions for you at the time. Of course it was the before diagnosis. And the after diagnosis. Obviously from this vantage you've been healthy for about six years. It feels more like a between period. Thus perhaps the title of your book between two kingdoms. This idea of interruption was hopeful one. I had this belief that i needed to endure the treatments than once i was well i get to return to my life into the person that i'd been that that didn't happen. I very quickly realized. After nearly four years and treatment that i couldn't return to the person. I'd ben bc before cancer and that in fact the hard work of killing did not end with the cure. It was really where healing began. And i found myself in this strange of in between place. The title of my memoir between two kingdoms is a reference to the berlin susan song tag. Who wrote about how we all have dual citizenship and the kingdom of the sick and then Bell but even though i wasn't sick on paper anymore i felt as far as i possibly could her from being the healthy happy twenty seven year old woman that i had hoped to end the other side of this. And so you know. The book is an examination of this year's of and the impact that it had not just on me but on my family my entire community but really it's about aftermaths and why we do when our life is ended and we have to learn how to love again. Describe a little bit what you mean by the difference between moving on and moving forward so when i finished treatment i has a solution that i needed to move on from illness and i very quickly realized that moving on is the kind of meth and as much as i tried to do. Just it wasn't possible. And so i really needed to learn how to move forward with my illness and its imprint on my life on my body on my mind and to carry thought wreckage with me as i try to find my way forward.
How Real Estate Sells Cars with Gina McCartney
"Gina, welcome to . the It show is great to have you speaking to us today. Maybe just to kick things off can you maybe just tell us a bit about Gina McCartney - who you are and some background. . to thank Yes, I'm yourself sure, you so Gi for na McCartney having me here today. Super excited to see both. So my background if i go back to perhaps my brief - youth and into professional career. I really my whole life was distant creative: sculpting, painting, designing and off the back of that passion went to uni studied creative advertising and was destined. ..my path was to become a art director . My very early career was in advertising agencies and spent ten years ing servic some like pretty big clients ilo, . kohl's meyer group. Cbi off foundation and then some order client bmw and many were because of mine and it was during that time that i realized how much i loved as and surprised no surprise. I joined renault. Stralia and joining renault at the time was at a really pivotal point for the business. And that was all about preaching and finding every possible opportunity we could in the market and myra was to introduce the sierra digital program. Really lift the capability of the dealer network from a lead management perspective. Sur getting out outta rot on building confidence back in the network that we were providing leads to them in generating value from office and then from neymar roll moved into a brand and events role and so the full marketing swayed had an awesome time with the business and great team. And then my time was up. When i was tapped on the shoulder for all at anchor pinellas area group been realized real estate dot com to you joined the business not really knowing much about the role. I was joining. He'd go to market manager role and of bain there now close to seven years and moved my way through various segments. So we're two now. Residential business at develop a business emotional property meteorologisy and clients and also to stint in malaysia. And i leave the win. We acquired a southeast asia and helped with the integration of that business side at an awesome korea here. Rei and now run. I tame called the customer. Excellence team and so my team move. Twenty incredibly talented people help support our two hundred thirty sales teams across australia. And that includes the learning development perching old training ogata market siles support collateral and operations analytic. Kpi's commissions incentive sprints and really big a big team mission and vision is to pave the new way of selling and selling clock when you work for rei. Let's bit about my story. Love love gardening love dancing and eighteen. And that's how i spend most of my time let's it's an impressive story. How you you've migrated from during the karate stuff through to or i will now into real estate now. We can't get a bit of understanding as to real estate dot com o. Rei group and what's the back story of real estate. Dot com abc business was born in the garage. Dome koster and for those familiar with john. It's in the eastern suburbs of melbourne and in nineteen ninety five and they came up with a crazy idea of water. We put the photos of property onto online so people can see them on the internet and so literally scanning photo by photo by photo built this web sought. That looks very different today than what did obviously up. Twenty plus years ago and over the years to really brilliant simple idea to gos- and today with the leading australian property portal and we have hundred million plus is it as a month coming to thought trillions of photos from a perspective and yeah we service most property clients around australia and that includes real estate agents property manages developers homebuilders land developers media clients of less amount of probably. But almost all and anyone that wants to reach property. Sega's we do business. You know you've got a really interesting background. Having spent tom and credit in automotive value in real estate can you. Maybe just discuss some of the similarities. Between automotive and real estate i remember when i joined. Ra and it was probably a month thing. I thought wow. I didn't realize there was so many similarities between the two industries. And if i stop from a business structure perspective the similarities of utah franchise groups independence at relationship between head office and you know the small small businesses that are running in local and regional areas. I think that that pressure that applies with a small business to find the raw talent retain talent when there is no professional requirement This note there's no huddle to get into other industry. And i think that is a challenge that are still share today and another real estate industry in particular institute really trying to introduce their professional courses create more opportunities for the right people to enter the industry. So they've got really quality staff sieving consumers invincibles. And i think our remember. That was a challenge in the automotive industry finding the right talent and apprenticeship styles perspective perhaps a bit of bid process. But that was probably one thing that i saw straightaway is a big lesson. In automotive that i think real estate can learn with the handshake. Between sales and after-sales and if you think of the real estate version of that is the sales and rental market now rent rolls the most profitable part of a real estate agency and if you think about the handover in the importance of one to the other the ongoing retention of the customer. I think that's a really important similarity between the two some. I think some best practice sharing could happen more. And then the probably the other big similarity i would say is the is much smarter and much savia and this is probably not exclusive to automotive in real estate but their expectations have increased tenfold. And no longer. Can you get back to a later inquiry within a couple of days. We're now seeing consumer expectations at a couple of minutes. And i think that's something that dealerships deal with daily and you know the the now now now economy that exists within cosima world.
Interview With Douglas Hill
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today i have an absolute thrill we are talking with doug hill. Doug is a corporate photographer. A fine art photographer. His work has been all over the place. It's in magazines books. Catalogues it's at the j. Paul getty museum the library of congress the museum of photographic arts in huntington library. You know of course for his work at frames a very active member of the community. Doug welcome how's everything out in los angeles today. Thank you very much scott. It's a pleasure to be here today. It's probably seventy five degrees and sunny but we're on stay at home orders though. I'm stuck in the office at the moment. Oh th that's a shame because seventy five degrees and sunny out in los angeles. That's a photographer's dream. That's what everybody hopes for. You could get that beautiful light out there does. There is so much that. I wanna talk to you about your photography there. There's so much about this. That i find really impressive and enlightening but i got to begin at the beginning i i really wanna know. How in the world did you get from being you know the seven year old with instamatic up to a world class corporate and fine art photographer. I got started. I got my first series camera niagara matt and the reason that i got it was that i was going out with someone who was very interested in pursuing an acting career. And the well. Here's a perfect opportunity. I'll have a model someone that i can work with them. And start to figure out how the camera work then actually worked out pretty well straight off the bat and i had access to actors and actresses drew agents and producers and folks like that so i began doing head shots and i did that for several years but after awhile i began to burn out on. I certainly loved working with people but there was something about the process of shooting. That was kind of growing stale. So i started looking around for other things that i could do with a camera. I had been interested as a kid in architecture. Thought i might even become an architect at one point except that there was way too much math involved and I i got a four by five. Large format camera and began shooting buildings that interested me but didn't know what to do next with it so i started calling all of the architectural photographers. The serious ones in the area Maybe a dozen people. It was before the the field had really burgeoned. I call them all Asking if they need assistance most of them alike. We said no including julius schulman said nad on the internet system Recommended a guy named leeland lee who had been his assistant for a number of years especially through the period when julius was at the height of his powers and he said you talked to leland and i have confidence that that that may work out. I called leyland. Leland was gracious enough to say sure. Come on by. I showed him some of my work. He said well. This isn't very good Which was but i thought. Okay i'll i'll plough on. But he said you know what. I can use an assistant and you're welcome to to start doing that. If it interests you so it did very much. And i learned an incredible amount from him working with him in the first year that i got to know him and i started to pick up clients and found that i really enjoyed the work. I enjoyed working at a much. Slower pace It was hard work physical work. There's a lot more lighting. The cameras were larger and heavier. It required an attention to detail that i discovered i. I really enjoyed so. I stuck with architecture photography for many years at the same time. It's doing some fine art. I had gone to ucla and studied there. And and also cal arts. So i i was sort of on these two tracks one being the commercial architectural work and the other being fine art.

Night of dr hulda jason other day or until about two thousand nine when i decided to move to And coming from a background of public policy. I decided that cambra would be the best location from korea expected. Not everyone's face choice but was mon. And when i go out sort of got into the business of working for industry associations lobbying for industry and my first job in the automotive sector was with the australian automobile association which represents the staten territory modern club so cicely moderates and sort of vets event mice the my initial knowledge and also able to then use that to bosnia for a federal minister said laws on numerous issues and opting for few years. I was lucky enough to be employed by the wpa and three and a half years later on. I'm still here and united loving really enjoying working for a really interesting industry and wanna be anywhere else. Key question for me is what is the double idea. Seem to what are they a organizations so double. Ada what's the fda and come from. That's a great question. You know the people here in canberra and my predecessors ever blackwill used to talk about the alphabet soup of zone automotive associations got the mt aa the aa. Ada the sei all of these organizations and they're all all sort of unique in iran. Why but the double. I is the industry association. Which exclusively represents franchise. New deals are members of board is exclusively made up of franchise new car dealers and we advocated on behalf of that industry primarily to the federal government on range of issues as identified by this apple in its powerful. It's a fairly new organization.

Number of senior figures within the industry decided that the needed no-go session which exclusively represented the needs of dealers at national level. And that's all the. I was think it's fair to say it's come a long way in the
Interview With Bradley Kam
"We have a returning gas brian. Cameo from unstoppable domains and brad. Thanks for joining great. Thanks for Awesome awesome. so we've had you on before for those that maybe missed it. You can go to the reimagine twenty twenty youtube channel Up reimagined twenty two brought cameron and it will populate they're interesting story good stuff there You know for free that. Take a peek out. That i'm having back again. So hopefully we can shed some new light and get some updates in and see what's going on but bradey know what i noticed from. The last discussion is With quite get your journey like into blockchain I've done countless interviews now over the last four months and it'd be It's interesting you know. Love to hear your side and you found out in the rational and how you got into blockchain shore. So i i heard about it from the wired article in two thousand and eleven the rise and fall bitcoin which a lot of people probably heard him read and i remember thinking. Oh this is cool. And that i remember tossing the magazine aside and then nothing about it again. For a couple of years i moved out to san francisco in end of two thousand twelve december. Two thousand twelve to work on marketing tech startup. Six years working on that. But when i moved to san francisco. I moved into this hacker. House called twenty mission Right in the center of the mission district is crazy place a day. After i got there they were shooting horror. Fill there Just to give you kind of an idea of like what the building looks like They didn't need to change the scenery. It was ready to go for the film So there was like a clown getting murdered or something like that right outside my right outside. My door They eventually built it up a little bit. Got a little bit nicer but it was basically. I started by a early bitcoin supporter and essentially everybody. There was some sort of Some sort of a bitcoin enthusiast. The second bitcoin exchange was launched in the basement of the building Trade ill second. Bitcoin exchange in the us. bunch of early meet ups were in the building. The talk was giving talks in or courtyard before theorem. Live was basically everybody that i met when i moved to. San francisco was crypto person. Maybe three weeks. After i got there read the white paper You know maybe rented another couple of times just that first week thought it was one of the most amazing things i've ever heard was a little skeptical about whether or not this could actually work implementation. Wise i'm not ankle so i of needed to trust might eleborate friends. Essentially that this was like real from a tech perspective. They convinced me that it was and reading about it and think about it. Ever since i was more seven years ago. So how is living about pat. I don t twenty mission. It's not there anymore. I don't think right though. There is a lot of phases so a lot of a lot of those early folks in a lotta. Those early crypto folks are have since moved on But it was it was. It was pretty wild in the back in the day. I mean they were doing doing five hundred person. Y- parties with multiple. Dj's going until six am and stuff like that A lot of meet ups. It was amazing. I met so many. Jimmy's metallic was so he's to my. Cto is what was in a hacker house. I don't think he was. I think he might have been twenty mission as well but there was another one. A nearby and metallic was pitching a theory at that time Which kind of blew. Everybody's mind when he was trying to sell tokens and obviously my cto. Now wish he would have awesome. Yeah yes i didn't actually. I didn't get to talk to patel. Bear but it i did a. I was taking this class collection. You in south bay. And i think twenty fifteen and batali gave a talk Talking about a theory. And what. I heard it. It sounded like the most convoluted confusing thing ever. Everybody was like why. What's gas wise there. Gas is that different than ease. The token like it was just so confusing hours. Like is this really. Is this really going to work. It just seems so So bazaars i i didn't i didn't immediately get it. I don't think i'm probably took me another year. After the thing was was live when i started seeing some apps and then finally once i could see apps i was like okay now i get it now. This is a decentralized platform for apps
Five Storylines for 2021
"Everyone on. Your sports illustrated tennis. Podcasts are last ten of being ear. Jbl joining me. We already dispensed awards handed out Various honors we toasted these six players. Who won majors in two thousand twenty in this crazy year. We have good farewell to the bryan brothers. We lamented strangeness of this rotation around the sun we have looked forward to twenty twenty one. So let's just kind of do it all out rap. Jamie how are you. How goes in your parts. Are you dusted with snow. As we are here in new york it is a little bit more than a dusting here but We are warm inside staring. It's still coming down but we are. We are all good here. I can always tell the rhythm of tennessee's in based on knows a press releases. I'm sent in when there are no tournaments On the calendar when they're no match is being played They tend to get to increasingly distant for tennis itself. It's been a while since. I've gotten a press release about An actual tournament result or a match result. So let's let's just kind of take final inventory of twenty twenty one twenty two twenty then spinning forward to Twenty twenty one. Are there any any sort of enduring memory. You're doing capsule late straight year in in in one image. What would it be in one image. That is hard. I would say if that was the case in an empty an empty stadium. An empty arena. But i think i think for me you did this a little bit in your mouth but i kind of have to agree with you that feel like all in all a twenty twenty was terrible of course across the board but for china's i do think that sport distinguish itself in many ways in. I think that for a lot of the players that you know we have been talking about for years now It was really nice to see a lot of those players breakthrough in different ways. I think of course dominic. Thiem you know had finally won his first major and you know he had a really strong year across the board You know twenty seven years old finally gets to his high ranking. Gets that major. And you know it's all done at that first ornament back first major nine only osaka of course who not only is her major haul here but then she found her voice and you know use it and use it well and i think You know we can talk a little bit more about her but you have severe kenan against him. Thank someone who we talked about. Who is young and she. You know kind of proved again that she is here and you know she's twenty twenty two years old but her first major win was not a fluke and the list goes on. I think again. These are players that we've been talking about and it was good to see them all breakthrough re cement themselves and kind of redefine their careers This year in twenty twenty such important year for everyone. I can give you my My off-court analog to that I think we're all waiting to see which of these changes are stopgap in that means in life and not just a tennis We which of these are going to be a new way of life so our zoom good replace office and are we all going to be enjoying outdoor dining going forward and how much of this is just Emergency measure it. How much this heart and into our new reality. And i think at tennis we have the same thing that we haven't had a lot of match results I'm glad you hit on the ones we did. And i did have some really good tennis but i think a lot of the discussion has been about. How do we broadcast sport. How do we travel the australian open falsifying dough high then charter private planes for everyone to then quarantine them austrailia. And we have events moving. And we've experimented with different formats for tennis and i think if any good has come out of this year it has been that tennis has finally decided to innovate to cooperate. It's not always been perfect. But i think there's a real sort of spirit of enterprise it hasn't always been around the sport

"seven years" Discussed on The News Junkie
"CanNot believe. It's been seven years right for the current iteration of this show. where all three of us have been together and doing a billion shows and just having fun I mean good times bad times, everything in between and having an unbelievable amount of success. Thanks to you. Just to be able to do this, every single day is a pleasure. So what I thought we'd do is go through our our seven best, and maybe one worst moment of the show in these I, seven years and I asked everybody last night I was like put together list as put together list of your seven favorite moments. Then all you gotta do is just have one worse moment and I'm sure you have more worst moments to choose from than just one. But I'M GONNA. Start off here. Okay. I'll go first, and then we'll just go go around between everybody I am sorry for being late to the beginning of this. It's fine. I thought maybe you just. You didn't have any good moments. Didn't have to pay and I was looking in the mirror. It's like. You can do this talkers. Pride, I see our. No, I, WanNa, say kicking it off as like. Congratulations and thank you to both of you for doing this together. Well, thanks, thanks everybody a heck of a ride and. We're doing what we love as I'm doing what I love and I'm happy to be doing this with both of you. Cheers to you as well. As your way, or should we? Haven't been tired handled next to me on Kurt.

Cheers, everybody, seven more years. Maybe wow seven years down. Do, they sign that ahead of time seven years. Hey, that's good. What's that called again? Two genders baby to gingers whiskey. That's good. That's a good way to celebrate seventy years on this show, seventy or success, seven years of of mopping the floor with the competition at seven years of having fun and having a whole bunch of drama in between so I'll start real quick and I wanted to start out with my. Favorite thing from the history of this show, we'll just fly around and everybody say whatever's on their mind number seven for me was at the very beginning of the show. I think we couldn't have been more than two or three months in. Moment number seven was when Chris Campfire busted into the studio. Gosh, that was a good one to tell us that we jumping up and down that we hit number one in the ratings. Just three months in I think maybe even less than that could've been quicker than that, but the the show had Ben seventh-place eight plays whatever it was, and then we started and very quickly. We're able to take the show to number one in the ratings and he like cut garage chance. So excited. I would just like a regular show and I. Remember in the middle of I was like yeah. I was in the control room at that point and I could feel like the. Something was like an unusual. Either here sealing jamming out on the guitar or Sean with vocal warm ups when I looked up, Mike Ken Myers jumping. He looks excited. What's happening callback? And then we did the impossible good God. Yeah, number one. That was a great one. What's number seven for us to bring another seven, and if you could turn my hang up? Go ahead. Number Seven And really they have no. Ranking was supposed to do a top seven Lisburn. Things I didn't mind either. Down and I have sub categories. But I will start with. The first thing that comes to mind because we talked to him recently I. Love Moses Dewitt He has been here since day one as dealt with the very last minute I mean by the hour and or minute calls to be like hey, can. Sponsors and this real quick. But on top of it the took us under wing as friends who went to hope town with him. Last he's a good person. And I appreciate the friendship that has come out of it. For him being part of the show and the success of this ship, how about UCLA number seven I mean I guess if I have to rank them I could push this one down to the bottom because this is sort of A. Is Not going to sound like one of the best moments, but I think for me just fascinating. I was a big fan in highschool of Pablo Francisco. And I was like where we landed him for the interview I was like Oh. That's super cool, a big fan of him and he's a big fan of cocaine. Allegedly allegedly how that works and Then! As I grew up I. Still you know. He was coming to town and it's thinking. Oh, man, how cool would it be to tell highschool me that you're going to be on the radio? Interviewing that Guy Window world and Dan. We talked to him and his seven different. In one minute absolutely out of control and that's one best of that. I've never ever played. Number six for me was the battle with bill cosby that was so surreal that whole thing. Yeah, when Bill Cosby was starting to gain heat, and we kind of picked a fight with them and became a big news story radio station in Florida offers one thousand dollars for a protester. Comedy show and and Bill Cosby did an interview beforehand where they asked him about it, and he called us. They're just a bunch of Frat Bros over. There is opening monologue at the center. Oh, you did then, too, but they did. There was an interview with him before where he was like that that station that that show. It's just a bunch of Frat Bros.. So that has been the name of our group text ever since that moment. I thought that was pretty cool. It's your number. Six Supreme I would have to say Jasmine try devil and the entire debacle of that.

"Always. When you have something like we're dealing with with covert nineteen and Florida and the numbers are Isaac Saint Her feast now I find it funny when they feel like a little kid when they take away something that you can. Do you feel like all right? You can't behave out. There aren't so quickly. It's not like when we were little. Kids like if do that again. We're going to take this away. It's like what did I do. Is it gone? Final warning, there should have been a final. I'm serious this time, but instead okay. Maybe it was like we're in class. And instead of getting the warning you saw that timmy was getting in trouble eating too many marshmallows of before the teacher finds out or now shoving marshmallow. Matter! If there's going to be no more alcohol in the state of Florida. WE'VE BEEN Covering that obviously that's an issue that people are facing the numbers. Skyrocketing or shattering records is every news organization is saying and you've got a ton of people taking tests, so keep that in mind. We had some records for test taking and we're GONNA. Continue to see that these people are all in their twenties or thirties or forties, and we'll get to your dispatches, commenting on all of this just a moment, but another big story of the week was about NASCAR driver. Driver bubba Wallace Sand. All of a sudden there was before a race a new story. Nascar said they were investigating. The Fed feds the FBI I think we're investigating central's of fifteen people out there to look into this. And it was all because somebody had left a noose in bubble. Wallace's garage whereas Nascar car was held, and then they did this investigation. They said Nope it had been there for. For a while and Blah Blah Blah. Blah Blah. We learned that this wasn't a targeted thing. Aimed at bubble, Wallace and people are still debating this one thing that Nascar did where I was like what the Hell Nascar released one photo of this news, and they went right next to the news in the garage and took a photo and made it look like this big thing, but if you look. Look at it from any other angle if it's not as large or didn't look as menacing as it did in this photo that they had used at Nascar leaked. Dow because now I've seen video and photo this thing from about every angle. You could imagine that's because I don't think it's an existence anymore. No, not now grabbed like an employee was like Oh i. do have a picture of it. That was in the background or take a picture of the race car just finished building I think. Nascar took like took a snapshot is. The investigation have way more photos than that. Why would have video I think they would have all kinds of stuff, but spiracy sure they did. That's that's another point, too. You know why this was there and what was behind? Regardless. We've got to the end of that story. Thinks. It's very clear to me that that wasn't targeted. At bubba Wallace though he has plenty of other issues being the only black nascar driver where things are targeted on him, people are terrible but the the owner of a speedway, a race track in. Whereas of North Carolina decided to weigh in on all of this good timing for him. Okay, he said, let me jump in on this, and he offered up a bubble rope on US book. Market Place. This has some twists and turns in it here. Here's what this person posted and this guy is a pretty terrible. The individual who owns this three one one speedway in Stokes county. He's too because no one's going there anymore. I don't know maybe if he's got his his crew. That doesn't care and they're all racist about this. I don't know but he. He tried to run for county commissioner and failed this guy posts. Things like white lives matter on his facebook. He's one of those types and he posted up on facebook. Getting the actual post your by your bubble rope today for only ninety nine each they come with a lifetime, warranty and work. Full P- is Mike Foale also advertise the heritage night encouraging fans to by confederate flag. Man and he said don't forget your Second Amendment right a doing all of this after this controversy and I said a rope Rei. What's he doing this then I found out something very unfortunate. It's. Unfortunate on what he's done his whole thing aside. I found something else unfortunate. You've mentioned before, see lane you. There's a couple of other Chris lanes out there country singer. You've been a little worried. What happens if the Chris Lane does something bad. It would be like if your name was. What's jared from subways last name Fogel if your if your name is jared Fogel and all of a sudden, Jared Vogel from subways creep Zoya touching kids and stuff like dammit, you've ruined my name, and then there's the Justin. Bieber in Jacksonville. That has a hard time getting his on facebook page. Like somebody can ruin your name for you, even Michael Bolton, but in this case my faulty can't sing. There was a company office nope. Yeah Office space in that case. There was a company that had a real product called the bubble rope before all of this, and now you're like damn it man screws everything up. Here's here's one of the commercials. If you play. Work off road. Novica -Tuation all too well. You Rig stuck in the mud and you're going nowhere fan. Yeah adequately. You'll be left spinning your wheels. We have bubble rope. And a buddy.

BUBBA rope sets a new standard and vehicle recovery with it's amazing. sportspeople transfers into Connecticut energy bottom line, but a row get your vehicle unstuck and moving fast I can only imagine it. bubba rope, H., Q. Like son of a bitch. We have spent so much on branding and commercials, yeah! In probably would not have been a sudden that harshly of a son of a bitch moment. This? Whole, not done what he did. Yeah, this guy definitely made it. Yeah, his his thing says by your bubble today. Only nine, ninety nine each they come with a lifetime warranty and a work great Part of me, I mean I would never buy this that would be. Bad Look advantage the lifetime. Call, Mike Foale. Lifetime warranty that you've seen other products went in which you at one point, find yourself needing to take advantage of that, and it's nearly impossible. It's like Oh, you were supposed to send this postcard here with to. This pillbox doesn't exist anymore and there's zero. Internet access or websites for you go back to like. For you? What he did that. Did you ever see that episode? Nathan for you did a deal where they had gas for like really. Go to the mountain and so. They like they had to claim a rebate on this gas and to get the rebate, they had to hike for two days up a mountain and they had like. Adding stuff I mean it's a great show I have not watched as. The legs debate the GO-TO. Try to get this I'm sure it works that way. We the full advantage of like not much notoriety to get the bits that he did and then I mean obviously that comes to an end real quick when everyone else we look like. I think he's still working on, but now everything's screwed up because Cova stop well that the person the last story with the bubble up. They tried to run for office. They failed miserably. There's another gentleman who's running for office. Michigan House of Representatives candidates. He's getting a lot of attention.

"It's always nice throughout these cold winter weeks getting getting, you know, having a long day, and you get a nice nice Email from one of the pecker heads. Let's see I guess these emails would have started rolling around. Six or seven. Let's see. Someone wrote about Amini heat and greet. And we'll get to that a Royal rumble heat and greet. Don't know if that's going to happen. Hey, peter. I'm sorry. I hate to cut the line for male. But I can I ask the question for. Of course, I didn't know, Greg. I wasn't sure if you were excited or offended. Of our here. I'm gonna hit the job. Anyway, here you. Mail. Okay. Go ahead carry. Okay. So I've been paying attention to the whole Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey thing and the chatter about them possibly being the is it the first female headliner for Russell mania that could be a possibility. What are you guys think about that? Is that a possibility? And would you be here for it? Well, first of all, which of you guys is playing with Legos as we speak. None of us come on with. What was that sound? I don't know. I don't know what you wanna use lying. Don't cover it up something out flipping pages. But I don't know how that was let me let me or the page again. No that you're that little jingling. I do hear that jingling jingling, Greg. Greg you wearing are you wearing some something iced out. No, no, not yet that. That this imposs- it's paper. It's paper. I think I think he's Istat if some of it's happening or you're playing with Legos like the seven year old. You know, what I do think it's a possibility particularly this year when I don't know where they go. Honestly, at this very moment is very early. You know, we're not even in January yet, it's not even twenty nineteen. But right now at this early juncture as we start to as we get to starting to think about the wrestlemainia card. I. I would lean towards it being likely that Ronda Rousey and her opponent, whether it be Charlotte or Becky main events wrestlemainia, it's a great year to do it. They did Evelyn this year. I we know that they wanna bring back evolution or women's pay per view next year. And frankly, I don't know what the big men's match is. So I think it's possible and likely G. Yeah. No, I agree. One hundred percent at its both possible and likely. Especially because let's face it. Becky Lynch is on fire right now. And Ronda Rousey is is Ronda Rousey, she's going to get a marquee match. At wrestlemainia. So if they put the two of those two together that would certainly justify them being in the main event because like you said Piazzi any men's match that deserves the spot. I don't see how they build to a man's matched. That would deserve to close the show the good good question there Chiron, and I think it's definitely possible.

"Listen to that in the car with the kids. I'm sorry about that. And the last thing I'll tell you about the case show, you guys if you're listening right now, and you listen to podcasts every week, and you really do want contact. You're not that into sports the case show, which there's there's an you can listen live on the PIN app or the podcast or if you Tony here. My segment it's called Aeon. There's an e n podcasts you just get my thirty segment thirty thirty minutes segment that I do every night where I do news sports stories that they react to you'd really like the show them. So if you just love this show you'd really enjoy it. But this is one of my favorite sounds ever. It's it's what a caller said this caller made this whole point. I don't even remember what it was about. And then Don responded in a way, where he just like proved a point instantly and the guy had no reply. And so this is now the sound I play whenever someone just get stumped. Because it's just so definitively the sound of someone who just got proven wrong every well. Well, hey, well, hey. You say, well, hey, it just means, you know, way. But you had said that blah, blah, blah. No, no I've tape on the tape. I said, blah, blah, blah. Hey, well, hey, all right. That's enough.

I don't think it's time yet for him to be done. Not by a long shot. So by Hooker by crook. Daniel, Bryan retains. I don't think it's time either. But I'm going to go with AJ styles. Wow. Shocking. Yeah. I mean, listen. Glenn Daniel, Bryan won the championship. He reminded me of that age old saying anything can happen in the WWE, which is really just like them saying expect the unexpected. And so. I'm going to remind myself of that as we head into this match that anything can happen. And even though we expect any O'Brien or the new Daniel Bryan to. Continue. Down this path. I'm going to expect the unexpected and go with AJ styles. While not what I would've expected..

I pulled up the page and the the shame laurels page on pro fight DB going back to. March. So since they since they came to smackdown. It looks like every match that they've had of the tag team. Except for one has involved either the new day except for two excuse me has involved either the new day or the use. Sauce. Oh my gosh. Well, at least at least the bar came dressed as run DMC. Which was made Cango hats, the Duke the bootleg. They're not even really do. He ropes there. Chains repugnant. I'll lose rematches three matches. I'm gonna go use os. And it's nothing but wishful 'cause I love them. Yeah. I wanna see them as chips too. But you know, what though this is not we have most of the same and says, and it's full black power ranking purposes, I'm gonna go new day because you determine them to be blacker. Well, we yeah. We need a good week while they actually are African American. They are black African American it. Okay. Not pacific. Islanders undis-. Yeah. Okay. Got it. I just wanna I'm just keeping track here of how you. I mean, some are not black that isn't it up to anyone's determination. The rock is rock is. But.

They got a good thing going not trying to say anything negative about him. But so the line is you have to be a part of the diaspora. Wow. I'll tell you what the black power rankings. Very very very challenging. All right. Let's get to the meat of this car. Does she let's get to what we're actually here to talk about. We spent a whole damn show. We already have to wrap this thing up in like twenty minutes, and we haven't even gotten to the meat and potatoes of this dam card. Will we get in here? We're getting there. I'm waiting before we get there though. We have to address bronze storm in versus baron Corbin. Okay. A match a match that Barron Corbin is planning to win by forfeit. Yes. Although keep Slater plays a role in this match. I forgot to mention I do like you Slater's referee. I hope he remains a referee. Same especially this conflicted referee that he's playing. Yeah. I'm into the idea of people, you know, being referee. I think that's fun. Not all the time. But you know, him being a referee could be even if you just goes on to become an actress regular sorta referee. I. Cool. I don't know. I gotta tell you. I haven't spent a ton of time thinking about what happens between baron, Corbin and. Braun strowman. What's your what's your take? Yeah. I'm gonna go Bron. We're not expecting him to show up which is exactly why he should probably show up. I mean has to rent. Yeah. I think so. Songo braun. And you think he ends up winning? I do because it's brought like he wouldn't be the monster feet in power through despite injuries. And then what? But then you don't think Barron goes onto become the actual fulltime GM of raw. No. I don't. Although. Yeah, I don't know. Maybe Alexa, bliss gets named GM of raw since we don't seem to know. What the hell's going on with her? Maybe. And that could be a roundabout way of handling it to like she gets named GM raw, and then she grants power over the men's division, which he had already. But now, she's the GO.

Lana the week that was made home. I god. All right. What's next, Greg, buddy? Murphy versus vendor whose weight championship match. I don't I don't know. Whether they'll have a great match, and I'll go buddy Murphy to keep I'm gonna go Cedric to regain. All right. He had a great run as champion. Why not why not send it back shoulder and get himself on the black power ranking? Yeah. Of course, why did that would do it? One hundred percent. Oh my goodness. Italia. Versace, ruby riot. Match ruby riot. Messed up because she's invoking. Nazi's late father, Jim the envelope high heart, and it's messed up. But ultimately, I think the reason the story makes sense to me, and that you know, that they're in a big the fact they have a rivalry based around smashing a pair of glasses. I think that has everything to do with this being an opportunity for ruby riots at get you know, to get hers. So I'm gonna ruby. Yeah. I don't wanna see it. I don't wanna see natty go through. A table with Jimmy Hart's. I know me neither. I really don't. I don't wanna see it. But I think that's exactly how it's going to go down especially because the riot squad is right there to like. Who does that he have to toback her up? Rhonda's preoccupied. I'll tell you. I'll tell you. What though I think Jimmy Evelyn her would be pretty pretty happy to be involved in the storyline. Oh, yeah. Like, that's what makes me think that it's going to happen. So even though I don't wanna see it as 'cause like, that's that's nat- ease pedigree. That's what she comes from. You know, like these professionals who? Try to get everything. And like, you know, what I mean, everything can be an angle and get the people worked up so. I don't know. Yeah. I'll go ruby to though, what's an excess energy Elias versus Bobby Lashley. A ladder match. I'm going to lie because I've said this many times if you like wins ally it's going to start getting some wins. I mean, I think we would both agree that the bigger trajectory here moving forward is alliance. Correct. Yeah. Yeah. So what's the point? I mean, Bobby Lashley now is a is a he'll cheater with Leo doesn't really matter. If he loses, you know, you're just trying to get him heat anyway. And I feel like allies that all these matches that he so rarely wins. And he has the chance to be so big like, I always say if he's not going to be Bobby Lashley, some you know, when's he gonna win? I like Elias here. Yeah. I'm gonna go Bobby Lashley. And you just said why because he has he has Leo rush with him and he factor. Yeah. And I do see we all rush getting blasted with the guitar not. Maybe not Bobby Lashley. But definitely Leo rush. Leo rush in his match the other day against allies literally without a shirt on Leo rush. Looks like a seven year old. This is true. This is true, buddy. Won the match though, he won that he found because the odds in his favor. His nickname should be the seven year old just like, my nickname is Gervais. Seventy year old piece ago.

"I think that's the way to go. I think that is the way to go. Although before we do that, though, the one thing I have to touch on which I probably we won't get a chance to wit. The preview is the Daniel Bryan. We'll stop Ali match which. Man. Is Mustafa Ali not probably one of the most underrated wrestlers right now because he'd had you talked about in people's match of the year like best wrestler conversations right now. But he's he's killing right now. It's hard for the cruiserweights. You know, it's it's hard for them to get their proper do especially because there's always only a couple at a time. So, you know, if you have buddy Murphy and Cedric Alexander, for example, getting all the pay per view matches. You might end up without. Another person or another two people in the and and there's a lot of really townspeople there. But yeah, that was an awesome match really fun. One of the great things about Daniel, Bryan. But we'll get Daniel Bryan more in a few minutes, but you're capable of using him in so many ways are so let's not waste any time. Let's breakdown TLC s g g we can have some nonsensical Repub predictions, not a winner. And we'd love to hear from you on Twitter Twitter just getting on Twitter. So she hit me with it. And don't get me wrong. We will get to mailbag shortly Rosenberg beats at gmaiLcom. So let's get this one out the way, let's take dance break early the mix match challenge finals fabulous truth versus Molly Shah. Did you expect any of these two teams to be in the finals? Wow. That is. I guess fabulous truth. Once you saw that those starting to work for them on some level is like a fun tag team. I guess in that sense. It's not shocking. You know, what I'm saying because they're over in some way. So why not like the point of the mix match is give people a little extra. And if you have one man woman combination. That happened to be getting over right now. One of the shows should we be surprised that that who that's who's probably gonna win the whole thing. That's true. Emma. Lisa is more crazy, especially as a nickname alone. I didn't even I that's insanity. Weirdly, well, the prize is what like a vacation or something like that. Yeah. But isn't it also the last spot in the rumble? Oh, yeah. It is. That's so crazy. That's. Expense challenge. It has to be a show, right? No, no, it could be a goofy spot. The. It's not like, I think gender Mahal is gonna play a big part in the rumble either. Well, this is why I went that way because gender Mahal while we're spending a lot of time on this. Can you believe is a former WWE champion? I see. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. But Carmelo is the former WWE women's champion and more recently and more likely to and more likely to end up in the picture again, I think than gender mall. You remember how excited I was when gender Muhammad's champion so happy same. I mean, we I made at least on this show. We all we all were. Apparently of TV family. Apparently, Vince,.

"Which by the way, I don't say that as a disk because it's it's it is part of growing up and getting to places where you start wanting to do more because you've been doing it for so long. And you know, the the the WWE no matter what John CENA would say his his issue has been, you know, the the the issue has been scratched on on some level. Yeah. I mean, he mentioned in the end of you that he he did movies, but couldn't wait to get off the set. So he could come back and beat w champion. And I wonder how much of that not that he would hate want to get away from the ring. But how much of that is the reverse now that he loves movies so much that he wants to stay around as much as he can. And is not so concerned with being a champion. Let alone WWE champion. Yeah. We'll see. I I don't I don't know how where things go for John CNN where he ends up wrestlemanias. There is there have been a rumor yet about what he is doing a wrestlemainia. I have not seen any rumors about what he's doing at wrestlemainia. But you have to think the he'll be back though. Right. I would think he's on mania at in New York. Yeah. I would. I just don't know what. I just hope whatever it is. It's done better than what happened last year. Yeah. Although they pulled it off last year. But the match it self was not. Well, I mean they pulled off that it was on the new talk about. But then the payoff wasn't there. Right. So like if you're going to do something so weird in terms of build the payoff. I mean, I I you know, how I felt at the end. You're hurting me. So do we all p the soda we all? And you know, what I what I wanted. You know, what I wanted John CENA to say afterwards. Oh, I'm sorry. And then when I at least he could've. And then when I realized what the match was. This was me standing there watching it. I see. That's and then, you know, but ultimately at the end of wrestlemainia, I said. I was so happy true. Indeed, though, it's sad. It's sad though. Because John Sinoe when it came to that match with the undertaker a winner. You know? Then then and then lastly, if you were to accidentally during the match you pick up a piece of gum and eat it off the floor at MetLife stadium you'd be saying eating. Eating. Yup. Thank you. I mean, you know, it's all things that makes sense. What else happened as g? That really news apparently rose rating hit a record low grade this past week and thanks Erin. Corbin sparked the debate on line between some former WW riders and Wade Keller and other people just about the overall quality. The product, and what this means for the company, and whether or not they should be worried, and I don't know I want your opinion on that. Like should that be worried by these weightings? Hey, I mean, I don't know if I'd say worried, I think I I think it could be an indicator of the show, you know, I don't think it's worth being like, oh things are all falling apart. But I think it could be an indicator that the show the show's haven't been that great. I mean, I haven't been that into the last few weeks, which is interesting because the card at TLC that I think is pretty good. Up and down the boards, pretty solid and yet week-to-week Rogers hasn't felt special at all. It's it's in a weird spot..

We we don't have enough patrons to go out on our own right now. But. Somebody brings in anyway. Hi, Brandon recently. I had the fortune of visiting France crossing beautiful. Southern French towns and villages among them was the was the town of Lourdes, which you might recall as very famous locality of where the Catholic church managed to spring of crystal clear water rising from grotto where young girl Bernadette sue Bruce in eighteen Fifty-eight witnessed an apparition of the Virgin Mary. This episode was thought to eventually lead to magical medical cures for all who visit the area being an atheist and skeptic. I thought I might have a go at asking for a permanent cure for my very old and painful football related knee injury. As always I'm prepared to admit, a re admit to a rethink about these things should the Virgin Mary make an appearance. Well, it didn't happen. Oh, no. I was hoping for your knee. Yeah. I mean, you'd have to join a church at that point. But I was let's see really sincere. Mary says, no. Anyway, he goes on I came from Lord terribly saddened as I witnessed hundreds of profoundly, disabled and ill people of all ages, so many in wheelchairs on mobile cots. Other others were the walking wounded waiting in turn to visit the magical H two. Wow. I felt an overwhelming sorrow for those poor people those poor ill and disabled people this probably being their last and only dream of cure for some the experience may have been of some advantage that I don't know humans live and hope I guess no matter how difficult life becomes perhaps. Lord, does some does serve some purpose so many ill in desperate people feel that there is a chance for for a better healthier future. Life for a better healthier future. Life for each who waits so patiently in line. However, may many I believe. Would leave bitterly disappointed? What do you guys think from Jim? Yeah. One wonders about that. Because there is something to providing a sense of hope and a sense of. And you know, there's there's probably a lot of people who walk away with some sort of. Some sort of feeling that they were healed a little bit or whatever just that's you know, from the placebo. Yeah, thing perhaps I mean, depending on what it is placebo. Can't it can't restore spinal functionality or whatever. Oh that it could right, right. But I mean, yeah, I don't I don't think it's good. I think this hurts people. I think they, you know, people will spend money to go there. They will put all of their hope into it. And they will have that hope dashed as and the walkaway. Here's the other thing. This is the bullshit of faith healing. This is the bullshit of religious promises. Is that what happens when you're when that promise is not kept when Jesus doesn't follow through is that the person is made to feel less than. Yeah. Because the person going is made to feel like, well, maybe my faith wasn't strong enough. And then they have to question themselves, and they feel guilty and shitty about themselves for something that was never their fault. It was never going to be a pro thing. But you know, it if they confront their priest and say it didn't happen. The preschool to say, we'll maybe your faith wasn't strong enough because your. Defective. Right. And fuck that shit.

"Right. He's we both. We have expressed this repeatedly on the show. Finally, we were aware of it. Right. I was aware of it last week to certain level. I didn't need to be as of where I guess as an now. Right. I should have been as as I am now without a synagogue having been shot up. Yes. And correct. That's it's not good. That's not good. Well, I'm gonna I'm gonna talk about a story that is also about Jews and the claim. Of of of anti religious treatment by school. Oh. Jewish family is suing to to get their kid who in into a school in New York K because but the but the school won't admit their child because their child is unvaccinated and his has a policy that all the children have to vacuum. In vaccinated graves apparently been measles around. It's there's an out a little bit of an outbreak happening, and they're not admitting this for your old to their school care. Well, the family is. The parents Shalom and Esther lane. Submitted a request for religious exemption. There is provision in the state of for religious exemption for strongly held religious beliefs or whatever, but the school is denying them, and they are claiming that that is religious that they're that they're being religiously persecuted. The twist the show Malang twist on this one. However, is that the school that they're trying to get into is you Sheva Olo high Torre now eight and the docs Jewish school that happens to require vaccine and their docks Jews. And there are the dogs Jews that. Yeah. Deny the hell out of that. It's pretty funny. They are literally claiming that they're that they're being persecuted for their genuine and sincere religious beliefs. I, you know, like people who have the same genuine. Insincere religion. Yeah. Except for that one vaccination thing. I don't know. Can you be rogue? Can you be a church of one right right on these things? And then just have a sincerely held belief on any Ol- thing you want. It seems like that's what they're cl-. I mean, lots of people have claimed this shit. Right. That's bullshit. Yeah. Yeah. That's shit. I'll be something that is actually taught by the religious community that you belong to. I don't know the other actually I don't think the things like religious exemptions. Fuck you, right. But I, but I gotta say could there be a more American concept than religion of one? Could there be a more at an army of one? Well, there's that's right. Every every soldier in. Our army is an army at least according to to a marketing campaign to that old marketing campaign. I I mean, it feels that that sense of rugged individualism. It's sort of an rind, Ian. In its religiosity of us. She was an atheist. Yeah. Brilliant brilliant. Amazing. Well, Dan, I've got a story of somebody who found her way out of what was going to be a life spent. In a convent. Oh, she she was training. She started training to be a nun. Uh-huh. As young woman. She she moved into shoot. She lived in convent from the age of ten to eighteen oh my God after nuns had visited her school rights, and she side trip or something. I guess so. Wow. Decides that she's going to sign up and and become a nun and she. Should is there in the in the convent, and and then she fell in love with one of her teachers and decided that. That that that career path wasn't the one for her his love conquers, all so she left the convent. And and then ended up meeting a man who is recruiting. For webcam girls. She is prone to recruitment. She is susceptible to recruitment. So she attended a casting session. Nice. And and has become. A webcam girl. Okay. So just my mom's listening mom, a webcam girl is someone who shows her body right on the internet for money. I'm sure this is not the first time, but this is ever happened. But boy she's fallen far from from where she started from nunnery. She said in a recent interview, there's nothing bad about a new job. I agree with that. Fine. She described it as decent and artistic. I she was feeling a little bad benign fil fine with it. I also feel good. When I go to church. I never miss Friday, prayers, Saturday meetings or Sunday mass.

"Stuff. He said back back in two thousand eleven okay. He says Jesus when he went into Jerusalem said I am the vine. I am the true vine, and until those that are called in Islam. This is no longer. Jesus words, and until those that are called in Islam realize that and until those that are called in Judaism realized that for that matter until those that are caught in the religion of Christianity, and are missing the personal relationship with Jesus Christ realized that they will there will never be peace in their soul or peace in their city. Right. Right. And so he is he says you cannot be in that land as powerful moving as it is without realizing the incredible tension this constantly in that land between the Palestinians and the Jews. There will never be peace in Jerusalem until the day comes that every knee shall bow every tongue. I shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Okay. No, first of all knees. Don't bow. That's not how it works. Well, so he needs to get his act together on that point. You can bend your knees. When you with that's not what bowing. Well, okay, Dan. But okay. Yeah. You gotta love the the Christian take on Jerusalem, which is which is basically Hejaz you can hold it for a while. Right. It's going to be ours. It'll be ours because you'll become one of us, right? Jews slash Muslims. You guys you guys keep arguing about it. If you have to, but and we'll back those Jews, but only because they're going to give it up to us when they see our Lord and savior to descend onto their mount of olives. And then it's going to be nanny. Nanny, boo, boo. Yeah. He should listen sooner give you one last chance. Right. If they give him the last year may not, but kind of the antisemitism is you and I were talking about this today. It's I was not I was blithely unaware of how deep the antisemitism in this country was running this because they've been masking it under words that I didn't know. We're code words. I'm so long, but like new world order deep St George Soros, all of these ideas are just blatant hatred of Jews. Yeah. Absolutely stem from blatant. Antisemitism. And they're all of these evangelical Christians are doing it. Right. They love Israel and fucking hate Jews. Yeah. They legitimately legitimate. Do. I mean fucking Mike Pence thing where he where where at a at a rally where they needed right after a shooting in a synagogue, right where they needed to reach out and say to the to the Jewish populace of this country. We support you. We're here for you. We're sorry. He has that fucking Jew for Jesus asshole. Come and say a prayer Jews for Jesus of why are not Jews. Right. They are asshole Christians who want to want to claim Jewish heritage. Right. It's the worst thing he could have done, right. Yeah. The yeah. So here's a man running for office blatantly. Not during the campaign right is on record. With very antisemitic beliefs, and that's that's rough that that. Yeah. But in North Carolina in the just going to be okay. Right. But this guy's dressed up. Some pastor running for for office. Nobody's going to question. It. I think in North Carolina. They understand that. A pastor is an anti Semite. They like that. That's, but I think there's you're just saying though, Dan, the broader community, right? Has has had a hard time identifying exactly where anti-semitism has existed in this. Yeah. Right. Yeah. And we need to be more aware of this clearly in light, you know, after the that synagogue. You know was shot up by a blatantly anti seven sin semitic, man. Right. Who who who picked that synagogue specifically? Because they they have they had a tradition of being a very pro refugee right community, right? There were participating in a in a or in a group that was pro refugee. Yeah. So like there was a lot going on there with with with that with that atrocity that mass shooting. You know, the thing that I love about about all of these hateful, people feeling emboldened by are horrible Tron president. Yeah. Is that at least at least it's out in the open at least, I can see it. I'm not deluding myself anymore. Yes. I knew being out in the open. It means that they are shooting up synagogue. I don't. Yes, right. It's like I'd like them to go back into the rock at this point..

"Only jeans novella twenty six clearance. Hey, everybody guys from beautiful fall in Salt Lake City. It's thank God. I may Theus the podcast. I'm Feldman, and I'm Dan Beecher and coming up today. Celebrate show. Yeah. We're we're we're gonna talk about our anniversary. Yeah. We've been doing this show seven years seven years which sometime this week which in internet years is like four fifty nine. I think five hundred is real is dog years plus ten dog years. Plus sure, that's right. We are older than dogs. So we'll we'll we will be. We'll be not doing a retrospective. But we'll be we'll we have stuff to talk about. But before we do that. Why don't you talk about what's happening out there in the world? Yeah. Sure. Some hope for. I Ronnie, Dan. Oh, good. I'm a fan of a straw. There is there's a mountain. In on the big island out in Hawaii. Sure. Right. It's the peak of mwana care. Where there are a lot of telescopes. Oh, really like high-powered state of the art. It's must be a believe it must. It's one of those super dark place. Right. It's very clear skies. And yeah. Because I the lot of those peaks stay above the clouds in the in the islands. So that's that's that's an interesting detail. Nonetheless, this has been a sought after place to put some of the best telescopes on the plan, and there was some questions to whether they were going to be able to continue to do this. Even though the local government was giving the go-ahead and so forth. And so on all the all the agencies that would have some say in in the placement of this in up on that peak. However in recent decades. The native Polynesian. People have started to there's been a sort of resurgence of awareness about their traditional religion. Right. I think about this. Why believe we did? So this is a bit of a follow up right story. But they they've they've become more aware of a lot of the cultural significance of the different places on these islands. Right. And this specific peak is sacred to them, and there's a lot of cultural artifacts up there. Because reasons. Yeah. I mean who? Yeah. Okay. It's an interesting balancing act, right? Like what what is our level respect for indigenous religions and cultures versus are just need to explore the universe that? I mean, like, I have a lot of respect when you hold an idea sacred or whatever. But when it's like a plot of land that's weird to me. Anyway, it makes it a little bit more difficult. But the supreme court of Hawaii has given the go-ahead for the telescope to be built. Okay. The case was it was a convoluted case issues that were brought up in opposition to the telescope ranged from whether the original annexation of Hawaii was constitutional. So therefore, again is this state can this state government? Actually, this isn't even Dame mission. Right. Like, this doesn't but we recognize that's not gonna fly in the court of the state that they're talking about. And then they also were questioning whether the judge who was acting more as. A mediator, right. Because it was a retired judge. Sure, but whether or not her family's relationship to a planetarium constituted a conflict of interest. But at the end of the day logic, and even prevailed, but after actually coming to an interesting agreement with the those in opposition to the telescope being there in the first place, they are actually going to one of one of the issues is these telescopes the facilities get built and even once the telescope becomes obsolete. The sillage stays up on the mountain route, whatever remote place it. Yeah. They're actually going to Dc decommission and remove all three telescopes up on that mountain. Oh, and they're going to close an access road. That's going to go undergo rehabilitation return the area back to its natural state. So it seems like a win for both sides to be honest. If nobody was using those. Those telescopes or if they just weren't site scientifically significant anymore, whatever. Got him out of there. You know?.
