Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Wants More Fans At Home Games: ‘I See A Continued Aggressive Approach’
"Jerry. Jones made some comments about attendance. Recently that i know caught your attention. Thirty seconds. Let's hear jerry jones kind of bragging about how many fans they've been able to have it cowboys games talking about how proud he is that the cowboys have about one third of the overall attendance in the nfl this year more than thirty thousand fans at their most recent strikes me as a little bit tone deaf in the current climate in texas. They're having over nine thousand new cases of covid nineteen hundred day one of the highest rates of any state in the country. There are people who have their family over for thanksgiving dinner and jerry's talking about having thirty thousand people in the stadium. Look on a conference. Call yesterday with doctor. Allen sills and other. Nfl officials they say the attendance decisions are being made safely in consultation with local and state officials. Which is great if that's true but it doesn't seem like the right thing to be bragging about right

Thanks so much for joining me today brian. Thanks for having me diane. I am thrilled to have you here. I know that you're a big believer that most professionals operate without a strategy. And i'm wondering if he would elaborate on that please. yeah. I i think the experience that i have not. I'm not personally obviously it. Was this way personally. But as a as i've worked with so many people now over the years that there's a lot of professionals out there who we can grind our way to a certain level of success when we kind of combine. We combine our skills and our talents. Were good at what we do. Kind of combine that with our work ethic and you know even flying by the seat of our pants we can achieve a certain level of success. But i still think even those people are operating without a strategy meaning at a certain point you hit a plateau where just working more hours or doing more of whatever got you. They're sending five hundred miles instead of two hundred emails or whatever it is it just you realize that's not doing anything and you know when when i help these people it's usually because they don't have a strategy and and let me be specific what i mean about a strategy meaning. They haven't figured out in advance. They haven't done the work in advance to figure out where they get the biggest return on investment for their time right and their mental energy. And so that's what. I mean by strategy. Meaning you are very intentional about where your focus is so you can get the biggest bang for your buck. Yeah boy. I get and i agree with you. I i it so interesting that they it's like they hit the ground running and they just keep running and then one day they stop and go. Okay hang on a second. Where am i going allergy. The analogy i like to use is like you know you have think of a fly right. I mean flies are good at flying. We literally call them fly right. They're fast they're nimble. I don't think anyone doubts that they're good at what they do. And their work ethic is is uncanny but you know one fly winds up dead on the window sill despite its talent and its work ethic and other fly just turns its audie slightly right changes its focus of where it applies that talent and skill and it flies right out the door and so what you learn from these flies in and what you learn over time is that being good at something and being successful are two different things and again you can be good at your trade. You can be good at what you do and again just kinda grind your way to that certain level success but if you wanna go next level you need a strategy.
NFL will be cautious with players, coaches who have symptoms
"And the NFL plans on being careful when it comes to flu symptoms came on W's Dave, You RAM joining us live with more on this morning, Dave. Good morning, Carol. The NFL's top doc Allen Sills held a conference call yesterday with the media. He explained that flew and cold like symptoms could sideline players, coaches and others from practice and maybe even games because They're being very cautious, according to AP sells indicated that if somebody is showing these types of symptoms, they're going to be kept out of their facility. NFL network reports It's going to take two consecutive negative PCR Cove in 19 tests 24 hours apart to return, Syl said. There's no evidence of Koven 19 transmission happening on the field while playing football, he says. There's high risk when small meetings are happening in person or masks aren't being warm properly. Carol when somebody shows symptoms but has tested negative for the Corona virus. Team. Medical staffs will communicate with infectious disease experts and the NFL on how to proceed.
Titans playing their next game after no new COVID-19 cases for two days
"Where things stand on on the titans playing their next game and also the investigation as to why. It. the titans players decided to hold their own practices after being told to go home Tom. Well, that's what the NFL in the NFL. PA. have been looking into and they. reviewed surveillance video they have conducted interviews I can tell you that with people in the organization as well as with players trying to get to the bottom of you know, how did those unauthorized offside workouts and I'm told there are multiple involving multiple physician groups. How did those come together they've also looked into whether or not masks were being weren't consistently They've looked into whether tracking devices were worn consistently and if violations. are found in certainly seems like at least on the workout front than you would expect, there's going to be disciplined on potentially harsh discipline i. mean there's only been truly one outbreak. The Patriots have had three cases over the past week here but the titans have had twenty three over two plus weeks, and the fact you still had people in the past couple of days in terms of players testing positive lends credence to the idea that. There was continued community spread after the facility closed because the players continue to get together on their own having said all that in terms of their ability to play this game on Tuesday I am told there is a possibility that the titans facility for the first time since September twenty-ninth could reopen as soon as tomorrow afternoon, they could be back to work do a walk through maybe tomorrow do a practice on Sunday you're ready to. Play on Tuesday, and even if they have an additional positive tests it was emphasized to me today. The NFL is looking at the entirety of this situation I mean Roger Goodell playing Md. here. I'm talking about Dr Al and Sills, they have a committee of epidemiologists to look at this as well as the committee of GM's and coaches and players who are deciding some of the competitive aspects of this. There were a through the contact tracing. A number of titans players that had identified as high risk close contacts with some of the recently infected individuals. So there is a likelihood if not an expectation that you will continue to have additional positive tests in the coming days prior to that game on Tuesday and the same thing with the Patriots there were multiple on told patriots players who been identified as close high risk contacts with the phone more. So again, a likelihood if not. An. Expectation could have additional positive test, but the League is not do. There's no hard rule that if you have a test on this amount before kickoff, we have to cancel every situation is being taken on a case by case basis and they're doing what they can and trusting the protocols to try to make these Games happen on Monday and Tuesday
"sills" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"We're leading the pack year. What we have to say is there are protocols have have been very effective in most cases obviously now, we've had an outbreak on one team and we've got a second team of concern but but the point is we have to look at. Each case individually and look and see what we're able to accomplish and I think all these protocols are only as good as the compliance i. mean we can have it sort of like a game plan rich. You can have the best game plan in the world if we don't go out and execute it well, we know it does it turn out well in Kinda stay in that football analogy mode, you can have ten guys on a play doing their job if one person's not the play falls apart. So so all that to say that we we're we're ver vulnerable when we will we're not at one. Hundred percent on our protocols we said that ninety percent ninety five percent is a failing grade year we just that leads too much opening for this virus be get in. So what you just said leads me to my final two questions with you. Then first things first is obviously you'd be the one that helps set the protocols up for a bubble if it is there a plan like an a top right hand drawer somewhere because it would require a ton of moving parts and union league so much more air bubble plan somewhere and somebody's top right hand to pull out if necessary, you find it necessary. Well we've discussed bubble scenarios all the way back into the summer. When we in the Union together look at that I think I would just tell you a couple of things about a bubble. There's no absolute bubble. You've always got people coming in and out not players and coaches but you know service workers support workers and things like that and introduce the virus and being in a bubble does not change the basic need for all the other parts of. The call if you're in a bubble, these still must do masks. He's still must do distance. You still must do hand hygiene. You still have to change all of these things. So it doesn't change anything on our day-to-day operations. The other thing I think you have to consider their riches, not just the infectious disease, but what the mental health and the emotional behavioral health toll inside a bubble when you're asking people to leave their families in isolate themselves for. Months at a time that's a substantial challenge for Michelle and behavioral health and I think that's something that doesn't always get discussed but I think it's an important part of the calculation. So you're always looking at what can you gain and versus what is what is the downside? So I would just say we have all this discussions we continue to evaluate but our focused right now is is on the protocols which largely have been working and trying to. Make sure. We're following them as carefully as we can, and then the last thing that you mentioned that you know an a team, you could take all eleven right to to matriculate a ball down the field or all eleven to stop a team from doing that I'm you know if one person doesn't do the job? Then that's a problem You know not to call anybody out but in the two minutes that we have left here, obviously the Tennessee Titans. something's up there We saw a handful of writers while they were trying to do some good for a charity went out We've seen some coaches get slapped down considerably because they're not masked up. What do you say to anybody in the NFL community that still needs a message on this front doctor Allen Sills. Well, we've said that it takes all of us and and I think, maybe coach Tom and I heard him quoted yesterday who said when one person fails we all fail we we're all in this together, but we also say this is hard. I, mean, this is really hard. This is a relentless opponent and said before this virus only needs a small opening and I think everyone has the best of intention everyone wants to stay safe everyone wants to keep their their fellow. Team members and everyone in the environment safe But it just takes day after day sustained effort and and as a doctor I know you know plenty of times that I give advice to patients Intel. Here's the right thing to do. Here's what you need to do. It's just hard to follow that all the time. We all recognize that. So I think we have to give some grace to people to say. This is really hard. It's difficult to do it all the time but really the only chance we have to say is saddest aim for that one hundred percent compliance to keep ourselves safe and to keep our team environment safe and we're GONNA. Continue to focus on tools that will help us do that I know that the players coaches and staff are very committed and we're in this together. This isn't about us. Being on opposite sides, we have one comment opponent here, and that's the virus and that's united the entire NFL at this time. All right. Thank you for the call Dr Sills greatly appreciate it and keep doing what you're doing in. I'd love to have you back on as conditions warrant. Thank you. Thank you happy to do that rich have a great day. You Bet that's Dr Alan. Sills. The chief. Medical. Officer. Of the National Football League. I'm an epidemiologist on TV I. Guess I'm trying to figure out again. So it's entirely possible. that. Gilmore wasn't shutting virus on Monday night football. Right. Possible. We don't know. I mean look like we're you know what I mean like to the naked eye to us who don't know much seems unlikely..

"What will we do to deal with those as quickly as we can and again try to prevent a large-scale outbreak but I think it's extraordinarily difficult if not almost impossible to go through the rest of the season without having some positive cases no matter how careful everyone tries to be because again, this is a disease endemic out in our society. In fact, we're seeing Peter Higher rates, of disease, transmission. Shannon incident. So as long as that's out there, we know that we're going to be vulnerable. You don't will land with this I know that you're not a football guy and I know you're not the guy who makes the final decision. But the football fan will asked this question. If the Tennessee titans can't get into their facility until the weekend. While the Pittsburgh steelers who they're playing scheduled to play this weekend have a full normal practice week in Pittsburgh. And they go into play the game. How could it be fair for this game to happen on? Sunday and water the chances that this gets moved to Monday or Tuesday out of a relative sense of fairness. Well I think there are a couple of things I would say to that thankfully period as you pointed out, that's not decisions that I'm charged with I'm simply asked to lead the medical effort in in that is really our Northstar here, which is what is the right thing to do medically, that has to be more important. That institutions will continue to guide us what decisions make us the safest not for only for each player for each club if the League is a whole, so that's always going to be our number one guiding principle I would say also though the commissioner has a panel, a group of advisers that he convened to discuss these types of issues and I'm sure. That the already has you already has gotten inputs in that group and will continue to get input from them about these types of issues, regarding fairness and so forth. But the other thing I would say to that as we've said all along that this season is going to be about flexibility and adaptability, and we're going to have to recognize that it can't just. Be Business as usual. We may have to make small thracians. I think also we've said that in this season equity doesn't equal equality at meaning that everyone's not going to have an equal road and we've seen that before there have been times when teams have been affected by hurricanes floods or you know other things that have disrupted practice schedules in and we've. Simply. Had to adjust to that. So I have confidence in everyone involved that they'll make the right decision but I, do want everyone to realize that the ultimate guide for our decision making year is going to be the health and safety of everyone involved. That's our top priority in keeping everyone is healthiest possible is more important than anything else in this situation. Gut Feeling if there are no further positive tests, does this game get played this weekend? like I said earlier Peter I'm not going to speculate on that. I can just tell you that each day that goes by where we're GONNA make the best decision weekend based on the medical information that we have to try to keep everyone involved safe. This possible because this is about a long range views isn't just about one game I feel responsible for the health and wellbeing of the entire league in all of our players, coaches and staff members and their families, and so we have to take all of that into account in and be driven by that more than any scheduled in front of us. Doctor Allen Fills NFL chief medical officer really appreciate you taking the time. Hey, thanks for having me Peter. And now my conversation with Ryan Fitzpatrick the quarterback of the Miami. Dolphins. Happy. Joined by Ryan. Fitzpatrick the dolphins quarterback on the podcast this week. and. Ryan I've got some very big news for you. I know you WANNA game this week but you also appeared in my football morning in America Kala. So that's really really quite an accomplishment free you. Do Love. Okay. So I, I, you gotta to hear you're one of my quotes of the week and I'm GonNa ask you about it. Then I'm GonNa ask you to talk about it. All right. You said. After you beat Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night. I feel like the luckiest guy in the world sometimes getting to go outside and play football with my friends. which is something quite honestly sounds like somebody who was thirteen years old with say you know who would get to go outside and play? So tell me about that and tell me why you continue to feel this way after all these years. I just I love playing the game I think as I've. Gotten older Perspective has has changed a little bit but I just I feel like I'm out there and I've already accomplished way more than. Anybody thought her than I even thought back in two thousand five with the Rams I was hoping to hang on for a year or two, and it's been an amazing wild ride but getting the do it now at age thirty seven and be surrounded by a bunch of twentysomethings out there it does make me feel youthful in just feeding off the energy it my teammates and you know having a twenty one year old left tackle. That's a lot closer in age to. Me it definitely Linke's me young. I, I wonder how it is to deal with. To town of a Loa who obviously was drafted to replace you. And when you guys get together, what are you talk about? All kinds of different stuff. He's a very interesting guy You know he has a lot of good questions, football questions, We're in the meeting room or even on the sideline during the game you could tell that he's very smart in that regard and just you know he's I. Think he's probably a little bit of an older soul just in terms of some of the stuff that he's into in some of the discussions we can have so. It's been a lot of fun getting to know him and he's got a lively personality that makes everybody smile around the building. Do you do you take on a little bit of a different role when the team takes the guy who clearly is going to be there long term quarterback I mean is it different for you this year than it was last year I mean, it's for me. It's the same in that preparation is the same You know, I know my job security really for my whole career. It's a week to week proposition and I've gotta go out there improving every single week. But with to a just being able to slow down sometimes to be to take the extra minute to explain something in my thought process or to sit on the bench during a game. In instructed talk and answer questions that stuff is maybe a little bit different than you know how would go normally but I know what my role is and I know that I'm keeping the seat warm for him I. I. Know The talent that he has and I'm excited in whenever he gets his opportunity. But I feel like I'm GONNA play a big part in that and I'm looking forward to helping him develop as a quarterback. And I I wonder too. How do you deal with a I thought this was a really interesting thing that happened with Josh Rosen. and. I thought one of. You would know how he feels. Josh, mccown would know how he feels other people who have had so many different coaches in so many different systems. I've always been curious mccown explain this well, one time when I asked him, you've been in about thirteen different systems in your NFL Korea or I guess you would say coordinators who would be sort of You know pretty different. An end in the time you've been football in thirteen years. You've been in football I. Wonder How do you adjust? When you have to go from one system to another. and. The new system is a hundred and eighty degrees different from the system you've just played. I N Josh. Have had a lot of conversations about this. For. Me I think because I'm a little bit further down the road in my career and I really know who I am as a quarterback and things that I like and don't like I'm able to..

"Vigilance around every aspect of our protocols, not only at the team facility. But when players coaches staffer away from the team facility. So in a sense you're right that we've said all along we expect to have positive. Cases because of those facts we've set up and designed protocols and procedures that would deal with that because what we're obviously trying to do is to prevent any positive cases from becoming a team wide outbreak or a league wide outbreak With that being said, I do WANNA tip my hat to the two teams that are involved Tennessee in Minnesota I think their medical staff have done an amazing job. We've always been on the phone since five o'clock this morning working through this, and they all move very aggressively and and simply asked, what do we need to do those steps so that there was tremendous cooperation collaboration expect. And didn't anticipate that we might be in this position and we've thought through what are the steps that we need to take and just like any good protocol you have to think about it and rehearse it and prepare for it today. That's what. What would you say are the chances based on your knowledge of the contact tracing that you have done that there will be more positives with the Tennessee Titans? Gosh. Peter I wish I knew the answer that you know I used to say that I had a crystal ball, but I dropped it in broken one day. So I can't look into it anymore but I think that it speculating is really not getting us anywhere. We just have to wait in lead intake and go where the data leads us. So we'll see what? The test results show over the next several days Obviously, as we mentioned again, we've closed that clubs facility. They don't have any players coaches or staffing the facility around each other they're all isolating and the data will reveal itself over the next several days. We'll look at that very carefully and will make what is the best in the safest decision for everyone involved. Have you at this point if there are no more positive tests with the titans have you told them or confirm to them that they will be able to open their facility on Saturday and go back to work Yeah, we really haven't confirmed that they actually haven't asked. They've said the same thing that that everyone in the equation is said in that is tell us what the safest thing to do is and that's what we WANNA do. So we're literally taking this one day at a time and that's all we can do at this point, and as I said, each day will have more data will have more data on handsome. The tests will look for any emergence of symptoms will continue to process the contact tracing information, and there's one other group that we didn't mention Peter and that's everyone affected around Game Day they're not art of either team what we call our Game Day Assistance Gd. Again we have notified all of them. We've done contact tracing for all of those individuals. So that includes people like the game officials who are on the field, the chain crew that's on the sideline or unaffiliated neuro trauma consultants, Airway doctors, and everyone who might have been on the field, and so we've gone through this same exercise that we did with the teams with all of those. Individuals We've notified them as appropriate and gone through the contact tracing process. I'm happy to report that we don't have any close context for any of those individuals, but obviously again will continue to carefully monitor them. So they're really three different systems affected here between the two teams and then all those game day personnel as well. Will those Game Day personnel be tested additionally this week. Yeah, we've set that up and him process those procedures, and so we will be testing the game officials additionally in those others. As I, mentioned, you are involved with direct contact. And the officials, the the officiating crew the did that game am I right in saying that they will be off this weekend I think that's again a decision will make based on the results that we see coming coming down. The Pike we've prepared for that eventuality notify a replacement crew to be available. Again, just out of an abundance of caution, we're trying to think long term here what is the safest for everybody involved in in? So we'll work through the data and test results as they come back. Dr Sills. Have you figured out exactly how long? How many days that it is safe after a situation like this because you know a lot of people are told if you come into contact with anyone who may have covid nineteen, they have after quarantine for two weeks and in this particular case. How is it determined? How long that people have to quarantine for? Well I think Peter again that's a comprehensive discussion that we have with our epidemiologic in our factious disease and our population health advisors looking at the particulars of the situation. I will say that one thing is a little different about us than than that standard recommendation is that we do have daily testing. We're testing people every single day in obviously the general public health guidelines were not developed with that scenario in mind. So that doesn't mean we can ignore good medical principles, but we are in a different place because we have so much information being able not only screen our players coaches staff. The test them every single day in also look into the to the the strength of the signal that might be present in those tests. So it's hard for me to give an exact answer our just say again, we have to look at the test data of the symptom data in also look at any pattern of spreader transmission because what you're looking to see is does there appear to be ongoing transmission within a team environment or or within individuals are in contact, and that'll have an implication and that'll guide us for how long we think it's important for that team to remain apart. I guess your biggest concern overall must be that you know at least one of these players in this game. Possibly could have been positive at that time. and. He could have spread it during the game. So tell me your biggest fear once you found out exactly what had happened at three players had tested positive. What was your biggest fear in? What did you look to do? Well I. Think What we looked to do to do exactly. What as I said we? And we simply needed to go through the steps and really focused on the communications to make sure we notified. Everyone is quickly as possible, and then we immediately got onto the contact tracing. I think as far as transmission during the game. This points back Peter to some of those things we've been saying all along I. Know You've heard me say this many others have testing is not what keeps US safe? We can never let her guard Dan and we'll just because everyone tested negative from Saturday test that we're all fine on Sunday and I think that even goes back to a recent discussion that was had about coaches in facemask face coverings. I know a number of people raise the question will wires the NFL Making a big deal about that everybody tested in their negative they don't need to worry about that in this situation points out. The answer to that question is we can never rely on testing to keep us safe. What keeps US safe is physical distance and the use of face masks and face coverings in symptom reporting in hand hygiene, all those other parts of our protocol I always say that the testing is really like our report card it just shows us how did we do on those actors? Do we have an emerging problem? But you know to the point of game, day this is why we can't go into game day and simply say, Hey, it's business as usual because again, even though everyone tested negative on Saturday that there can be exposures and I think that's what you've seen in this case. So hopefully, that'll help us continue to spread that message and will continue to do a an important job in keeping everyone safe during the game environments by doing all those things that we know are really important for risk mitigation. Are. You concerned that now that the players are out of the relative cocoon of training camp and now sort of living in the real world that this will be the first of many. Well I think we've said all along that. We expect this to be hard in. It's GonNa require continued an ongoing diligence, not just by players by coaches and staff members, and again remember people share household share households with with others that are going into other environments. They share households with children that may be going to school. So this is a constant risk that it's accumulated by everyone, and again that's why we have to have protocols that tries to test in screen as frequently as we can immediately identify someone if they are infected, get them removed from that environment do contact tracing do all the things we've talked about. So I guess to answer your question say obviously i. Like everyone else hope and pray, we never have another case during the course of the season but I think it's naive to to put all our hope anatomy of someone famously once said hopes not a strategy right? Our strategy has to be we expect they're going to be positive cases..

2020 NFL season to kick off with COVID-19 safety protocols
"The NFL season kicks off tonight the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs House, the Houston Texans that it will be limited in person attendants and increased safety protocols. Health experts have been working around the clock with league officials to make sure this year's season is as safe as possible. Dr. Allen Sills is chief medical officer for the NFL. Well, we think what we're doing here is important. It's important because what we're trying to do is find a way to mitigate risk and at the same time resume some of the activities that we all love and enjoy, and I think that's something that's important, not just to the NFL or professional sports, but really, to all segments of our society. It's the same question being faced by businesses and schools, places of worship places of Inter Tainment. More than 60 players have opted out of playing this year to keep themselves and their families safe.

"Finally I guess I would be curious about. how you have felt about. Colon you know there's obviously questions about you know Cova being tougher on people of age. Jay and obviously you know how old Bruce I'll be sixty eight. Yeah so and I'm out. I'm out at practice today and I'm looking over and you're having a conversation with Tom. Horan I looked them up. He's eighty one years old. And okay. You both have mass on but I wonder how much fear trepidation. Did you haven't did you talk to Tom more all about it? Yeah we we were both know he. Was, in Hilton head I was a Georgia to lake. Until he came back and. L. We were both very safe about what we're doing. We've you. Haven't been out to dinner probably. Four or five months neither has hit you and it was like. We've got. I think five coaches over sixty five. And I'm a cancer survivor. I was asthmatic kids every damn thing you can have to be in high risk so I I wear I wear mass sometimes. I was told that young wraparound sunglasses are as good or better than I shield. And I just have to be careful because I love getting in the huddle with. A lot of you know outside they don't have to wear their masks I just have to watch. And be a little more careful than normally would be. But You know like I gotTa let you gotTa live and I take every precaution. I can possibly take I'm very, very satisfied with the protocols. Put Him by the League our guys are. Committed each other to make sure we stay. Safe. and. Then they know they have to keep coach more than the other. High risk coaches Keep them safe to so we we had a long talk about that when I got started and I feel very comfortable about it is there risks. Yeah. But. It's worth it to me. Very says it's GonNa work. I think so I think. So it only takes one or two young players to spread all up but I think. I think what we've got the protocols in place I. Think we're going to get through it. Yes. I had this feeling after you sign Tom Brady. And the disease kept getting worse and now you're in this big hot spot and look I I know this is GonNa, sound. Very. Very careless and and and a little bit uncaring. But I said to myself. You Know Bruce. Arians is not giving up the chance. To coach Tom Grading period I mean I wouldn't I? Mean if it was five times worse than it is right now. I just think again I don't think I know you. As as a lot of people do but I kind of know you well enough to know that this is to you in what your choice of job is in your life see opportunity of a lifetime. You're grabbing it. Totally totally, and I can honestly say, Tom. Wassenaar quarterback I'd be as all as I am today but with Tom. That's like a cherry on top. You know I mean that's that's everything and but yeah, I mean. Whoever quarterback was whoever players were I'm all in we WANNA rank and We're GONNA do everything we can to get one and. We've got great ownership, great general manager Daren, Helluva, football team, and We just stay committed to bidding the virus I think we'll be able to beat teams on the field. I areas, Tampa Bay head coach much for taking the time. Thank you be. Back on the Peter King podcast. So happy to be joined by Alex Mack the center of the Atlanta Falcons Alex is joining us I'm today in Nashville after being in, Atlanta. Getting Ready to see the titans now, but after being in Atlanta on Saturday This is sort of the way we do interviews now. WE DO A. Yeah by video conference. It's It's pretty it's pretty amazing but Alex, thank you first of all. I think it would be interesting for people to hear in no in sort of see. That in flowery branch Georgia were the Atlanta Falcons have both training camp and that's the permanent facility. There is a series is sort of a complex. Of. Almost you calm. Large people, condos L. right behind the practice fields. You know big beds big rooms everything like that, and that's sort of where you're living a lot more of your lives this year at training camp explain it to us I mean in training camp we always you stay here in July it was nice because everything was very onsite. He wake with Maureen roll out of bed get to the facility in start that long day now because of. You know Kobe nineteen else they're not making a stay here I can still go home, but we don't have locker room anymore because it's too close to small is too many guys. So we're using all these different dorm rooms as our locker room. So I come here into my dorm room to do these kind of meetings and some online stuff because you can't have the whole team together. And At my shoe drier never they also be here in my clothes has seat over there. But it just this is now the locker room and used to be where we spent camp is where we're going to have our locker room for the entire year. which are pretty lucky about this is a nice facility we have our own space. It's quiet..

"What were their close contacts and so in some cases four maybe way too many cases that may represent a major outbreak that's going on In other cases, those four positive tests may not represent new infections. So I think it's a complex question, but again, it's not one we're. Going to solve alone it's one where we're GONNA pull in our infectious disease experts the local public health authorities in make the best decision for the team and for the League as whole. One of the things we have to recognize in this pandemic is the health and safety of the team and the health and safety of the League is an entire community is is more important than anything here. So we have to safeguard that at all times. Do you believe that fans should be able to go to the Games. I think again, that's going to be a variable. By region, depending on the state of the pandemic depending on you know what the local public health authorities feel I do think that we've seen through the course of the summer. There are ways to have public gathering safely. There are ways you can do that. You can certainly mitigate risk by spreading people out by using masks by limiting numbers there are a lot. Of measures you can take and I think again, our clubs in our stadiums have done a great job putting those protocols in place but I think it's not just about the protocols you have to again look at what's happening in that community. What's the? What's the level of transmission? What's the state of the disease and and so it's sort of a case by case basis. Someone. Who knows Roger Goodell told me last week that and I'll use these two words that he is and I quote absolutely determined end quote. To play football this year, not just play football but as a sign to America that life can go on sort of the way the draft was and things like that. What's been your experience with Roger Goodell during the last few months. Well. I would say that we've talked to each other a lot more than we ever have previously It's a really regular stream of communication and I think that I would say that I believe the Commissioner is determined to try to do this in the safest possible way, and he does believe it's important for the reasons that we spoke about earlier showing that we can live with. This virus, but I also know these absolutely driven by the medical facts. I don't think that there's this idea that we're just gonNA play Football Cam, the torpedoes no matter. Yeah. I. Never never experienced anything that approaches that I i. think it's what is the medical science tell us but I think he constantly challenges all of us to are there creative ways that we can move forward and? Be Safe and I. Think the draft was a great example of that. Right? There were plenty of people said you should cancel the drafter never have the draft and then a whole lot of other people that said virtual draft will never work. Right? You can't have people at their houses doing this zoom draft and he really stayed the course and said, let's let's make this work if. We can. But what was driving that is you know he would come to me and say what do the public health authorities say what what are they telling us that we should do in when I realized that information then he said, okay, that's how we're going to do it. So I think he's in incredibly driven to move forward but only in doing. So with what makes sense medically Allen Sills chief medical officer, the National Football League. Thanks much for taking the time to talk to us. Thanks for having me. Back in the Peter King August happy to be joined by. Actually the happiest man in the National Football League. Bruce Arians I'm going to tell you the coach of the Tampa Bay buccaneers and I'm GonNa, tell you why he's so happy. It was a little over a year and a half ago around mid season two, thousand eighteen when I ran into bruce. Arians. In the Intercontinental Hotel in Kansas City. Bruce was in town in Kansas City to do a game between the chiefs and the Arizona cardinals for CBS television, he was on a broadcast team with Greg Gumbel and Trent Green. And I can tell you bruce. Arians really really liked Greg Gumbel and Trent Green but Bruce Arians at determined something by midway through the season two, thousand eighteen and that is he didn't really like doing television versus doing football and I just remember that day walking away from that little meeting just chatting with you in the lobby thinking. This guy wants to get back into it. And then three months. Later you're the coach of the Tampa. Bay buccaneers. And then the other magic wand moment. About a year and two months after that, you're able to sign Tom Brady. So Bruce. I guess if you can look back. At how quickly your life is changed from thinking that probably, you never were gonNA coach again. To Get into coaching job, and now all of a sudden you got the guy who might be the greatest quarterback of all time on your team. Has Been Amazing ride an amazing I. Never thought I'd coach again and I knew I knew I was done with broadcasting and in art decided to bite my way too many times and but what a great crew that would you talk about Greg Gumbel Trent Green all that what crew Melanie Collins.

"Interstate twenty four West. From. Nashville Tennessee. Up Toward Missouri. Because we're on our way to Kansas City. And if all goes well in about eight hours, we will be in Kansas City Missouri. But. This week I'm doing a podcast from the road. So I've got three guests for you this week. Got A short conversation which taped on Tuesday morning. I had the home of Allen Sills the NFL's chief medical officer. take that in Tennessee. At his home. You'll be able to see some video of that and NBC Sports, Dot Com NBC sports you to page also. But also this week. We're going to have a head coach Bruce Arians of the Tampa Bay buccaneers I was down in Tampa last Thursday and Friday, and then over the weekend I recorded a podcast with. To, me one of the most interesting and and fun guys in the NFL may not know very much about them Alex Mack. The Center for the Atlanta Falcons and also a little known fact he's the treasurer of the National Football League Players Association and we'll have some conversation about NFL PA matters and. Cova and things like that. So. It is a jam packed podcast. I'M NOT GONNA take a lot of time here at the top before we get to the conversations. But what I thought I would tell you is just a little bit about the mechanics of this training camp trip. If you know me know that the training camp trip is my favorite time of the year you spent a month. Getting, reacquainted with every. person who you know in the NFL and a lot of new people we don't know in the NFL and so I've really enjoyed it over the years going to twenty, twenty, two, twenty, three camps over a month long period but this year because of covid. The training camp trip was kind of a casualty. So I'm going to four teams total in eight days as you know of already been in Tampa wrote about Tom. Brady this week football morning in America then from there went to. ATLANTA. Excuse me. went to. ATLANTA. And then to Nashville stayed in Nashville late Saturday Sunday and Monday before getting in the car today Tuesday and driving for Kansas City that'll be my last stop. Then I go home and I've got a quarantine. at that point. So when you live in New York you basically have to quarantine. When you go to any of about thirty five states, I'm not really sure. I. May. go over to the giants jets at some point in the next couple of weeks if I find out, the quarantine does allow that but. I I don't I don't know I can or not. Anyway. What has been really interesting about this trip. The person holding the camera right now is anti colds. She is an NBC sports producer and on this trip. She is my videography, and so you may have seen her handiwork in my football morning in America column on Monday. She is the one who got the OJ Howard, Tom Brady video that basically I used as a huge negative an idea in my column this week. So and he's been invaluable on this trip so far. I I. Really Want to just take a moment to say. You know. What happens on a training camp trip is that you get to spend time with people who you? Don't really. Get the same opportunity to spend time with during the year. And so what is interesting about this here is that all that time is spent virtually and that time basically is spent on this video conference. APP. We have an NBC called Stream Yard right before I, left the hotel. I did Patrick Mahomes. Andy Reid and tyrant matthew with chiefs. This was the media day for the chiefs to do stuff that they don't do is kind of a group media things. So if I was going to get one on one stuff, it had to be on. Tuesday. So I'm going to write about them for next Monday. But my time with them was today so. I'm basically covering the chiefs from the J W Marriott, hotel. In Nashville that's where I'm I'm getting this stuff. So we'll go watch practice for a couple of days, but there's not going to be any interview opportunities. But anyway it's just it's a new way to do things. It's different. Next. Week on my podcast I'm going to do a little A little bit more on the mechanics of NFL coverage these days. So I look forward to tell me a little bit more about that. But so that I'm setting the scene now you're going to be able to listen to. my interviews, Alan Sills NFL chief medical officer Bruce Arians coach the pucks. Alex. Mack. The center of the Atlanta Falcons happy to have you with me on the podcast this week. So let's listen to Alan Sales. Doctors Sills. I think everybody in the United States is basically watching the NFL in looking at the results that they see from the national football league. And early this week it was reported that there only twelve players out of two, thousand, eight, hundred approximately who are on what is called the covert irr list meaning that they could either be positive for covid or they could be in close proximity with someone who is positive for Covid and thus was going through a testing regimen to make sure they're okay. What does that say about the progress of testing? Well. There's one other group that actually can also be on the Cova Dr in that group that has had a positive test that hasn't been confirmed yet. So there are definitely some of those, but but I think it says that first of all that we're keeping a very close eye on this situation and and obviously with daily testing and all the screening that we're. Doing, we have a tremendous amount of information coming in, but I think it also says that are clubs are doing a terrific job. You know meaning our players, coaches and staff everyone is taking this very seriously. They're looking at how can they prevent risk for themselves and for that that team organization and I'm really proud of the work that we're doing there are teams. Are Built on competition and excellence, and I feel like they've taken that same spirit of competition not to compete against each other but to compete against the virus, what can we do as organization as individuals to make ourselves safe here and and I think that's that's showing up in the results. So. As we sit here right now, there's so many. Things that I'm sure you have to be concerned with on a daily basis. What are the things you look for every day when you analyze the results that you get from teams? Well, we're always obviously I looking at new positive tests. You know anyone who test positive and really what we call a novel positive meaning. You've never had a previous positive test because we know medically that if you've tested positive in the past, you can have a positive test for many months. Afterwards that's just part of the unique features of this virus. So we certainly look at those novel is, and then we also look at the context data to see how our teams are doing. You know with the distancing and making sure you know if we do have a positive, what does that look like in terms of close contacts? If you were to. Look at a every team. And the fact that the highest percentage on any team so far has been one point, seven percent positive tests on that team. That seems to be. A lot more positive than I would have thought particularly with people coming from wherever they were coming from all around the United States. What does that number sadie that the worst team has been one point seven percent positive tests yeah. Again, I would say Peter. I was pleasantly surprised with that because I felt sort of like you did with people coming from all over the country and even all over the world in some cases that we were likely to have a lot more positive cases when everyone came together because remember those intake tests, they didn't show what happens. Once you're in the NFL facility, they just said, what are you bringing with you what? Are you coming from the outside but I think again, that goes back to saying that our players, coaches and staff they were already thinking ahead and making sure they were taking precautions leading up to coming to training camp so that they arrived in the healthiest possible state and and so I think it's a very positive start but to put it in football terms, that's the first series or the first drive of the game we got a lot more came in front of us, and so it's a great start but we've got a long way to go. We have to remain vigilant because whenever we let our guard down, that's when we become vulnerable. What if anything have you learned from baseball where the Marlins the cardinals now, the reds to some degree have had some positive that have kept those teams off the field..
Interview with Thriller Writer Andrew Allan - burst 1
"Hi. Everyone may guest is the author of the wall Asher Thriller series you also right to grind house hulk. We've gotten talked about. He is an infomercial writer and director is also into wild cope movies making them I believe. And runs a website called daily. Grind House Dot. com I guess today's Andrew. Allan. Hi Andrew. Thanks for being here. It's Sure thing I love your resume I mean you're you're by it was fascinating to me because I love sill as well as books I assumed that you were infomerrcial rendered director before you started writing books. Yes. Yeah I, my career is little bit weird in the sense that I went to film school and then I, broke two commercials while I was working on developing movies and I ended up getting a job at the home shopping network, which is based here in Saint Pete Florida and. It's bizarre. Everyone presumes it is, but it was really great experience and I learned how to do a lot of things including sell on TV and that often into doing infomercials, which is selling on TV so and I have to say I love it as ridiculous as it sounds I it's great profession. Sounds. Really cool actually. What made you decide to do infomercials and what prompted you to start writing books? Money prompted me to start doing infomercials. Is You know we all need it. We all like it. But three Oris was. Like I said, I. Learned to basically sell on television when as at. and. That is a natural transition into infomercials and when I decided Lake Age San. I knew I wanted to make my writing or sorry make my living still riding in. If, directing producing commercials. In what was great about infomercials was at a Niche. So instead of just saying, Hey, I'M A. Commercial writer and there's ten thousand other people are competing with. I said been infomercial right better and maybe ten people on meeting with. So now I can like authentically say one of the top it from our show writers world and I've got a ton of experience done thousands of commercials in the ask aid and all that sort of stuff so. It's great and that's how that came to be the reason I started writing books. was because I I remember reasons when I was creatively frustrated had been making movies had been writing screenplays in. which were fun and some of them got made some of them did. But all of them required collaboration and I had reached a point where I didn't really want to collaborate anymore. At least for a while, I needed a break. And that's even on projects that I absolutely loved movie that was aching with my best friend and. Even then like we would get into arguments and about I just needed a break from that. So I wanted to do something on my own and that's when I decided to write a book had a story. Kind of kicking around that I'd never been able to turn into a script. I finally figured out how to make that work in book form, which was the first of Asher took and. Took it from there, the other the other part of that story is. I was actually reading a book by. A very famous author that we all know who I'm not GONNA name and Not to sound Eric and I thought it was terrible house like a weight. and. I actually caught myself saying I could do better. And? You know a very arrogant thing to save for someone who's never. But I decided to see if I could back up. And I think I did. unbelie speaking I didn't think I was right. Funny because a lot of writers actually do start offers those kinds of thoughts I do this. Anyway it wasn't even looking down at the writing it was in fact. The looking at the idea of being writer was more like this story is not entertaining be and. I know enough about story structure from screen plays and things like that. where I could look at this and say, really was about me thinking this guy should be doing a lot better for albig their name is and how much money. Yeah. You points for originality on coming up with a protagonist is infomercial writer. Director. But I see that you've drawn from your own background or at least I assume you have. Tell US little about wall. Ask How is it? He gets into the kinds of situations that would lead to thriller. Series. What I had to figure out. As. He is comes from my background. I did go down the road of right now and that's because. As confident as I was writing commercials in his confident as was writing movies I had no confidence whatsoever writing a book so I figured I ought to. Rely on everything that I could get off the so. And then plus the idea. Of Him being an infamous rider was intriguing. You know. I. Like all of us had written read million books about cops and lawyers and soldiers, detectives and reporters. That's great. People are probably doing it better than me. So let me try something completely different. And I worked at it worked because I think wall what I like about wall. What I like about these books is that he has to rely persuasion to kind of get by doesn't mean he's not physical. There's a lot of action in the books and But. But he is a true amateur sleuth who has nothing to do with. Justice and basically starts out he lives on the Rainbow River, which is a real. River Donnellan Florida about two hours north where I. In he's he's in the river because data's friend's house by the water and finds his friend dead on the Bank of the river. With an alligator in the process of Jim up. But it's clear that the alligator did not kill him so. One thing leads to another and the villain in the story overplays its hand. And attempts to kill. Walt. And it becomes very clear that he has to do. Something a balance it's no. A- paranoid. It's legitimate in in the Diet figuring out. took. Let's see you also, right. Does poke at the series also correct. Those books like you fun. Grind House. I I. Guess. Okay so Basically the Grind House was forty second street movie theaters in the Sixties Seventies in eight Times Square. And They Kinda just show like all the really gross horror movies the karate movies, all kinds of stuff you know movies that were generally looked down upon, but also provided extremely visceral thrill. And I love those movies I think they're A. A love cult movies, and so my grind house pulse series is basically me coming up with ideas for grind house movies, it putting them at goes. It's different than like the wall Asher stuff is war. Thriller Mystery Thriller Suspense Ryan How's Paul is pushed things over the edge a little bit more. you know there's more violence and there's You know just like you'd see in those insane movies and they're really they're. Their books of movies I would love to see. Yeah Yeah. You. Should check public domain deserves some really crazy things that you probably already know that. That's for sure. Oh my gosh. If you receive Nanos hands a fate. Badly. I had yes. Oh my God. That's all say about that. There's some movies that are just so bad. You have to see them. That's one of them. Well, that's a little part of my resume I produced Herschell, Gordon Lewis's last movie. Own Donahue Herschel is he's the guy. He was the first guy to put Gore in a move back nine hundred and sixty three in the movie blood feast. and He did other movies like wizard of Gore or girls and two thousand maniacs. E, Kinda started it all and he was. Low budget exploitation filmmaker and I had the great fortune of. Meeting him in basically getting to produce a movie for one of my heroes. While that's fantastic. That's wonderful To get back to Walt. Is there an overall story ARC in series? So the first book was really just a test to see if I write a book. Well and that feeling. Of. Really sort of rabbit story. There was a slight. Subtle hints. To where it could go beyond that story. Then after I thought about it and I liked the process and I thought the book went well and I didn't get demolished by reviews as like yeah I'll continue the so. As it exists now there's a three book. Arc. Where each is a complete story of their full length novels, but the villain is the same in the three of them. The Antagonists Casino tag is more of a secret organisation kind of thing than just one person specifically. So there's arc with that and then in between each novel. I, I wrote an Avella. And those are side stories, featuring walt and some of the same characters from the boat but not related to that big overarching story. So. Just kind of Nice it's sort of like a breather in between, but you still get to spend time with the characters. That's cool. Yeah. Most of those are. Rooted in the fact that. Waltz basically best friend up on the river where he lives. Dining digi who is actually a criminal biker. And he's into all kinds of criminal stuff but he's just Kinda like one of those Florida Good Ole boys who are fun to be around and for whatever reason he likes wall is completely not of his world. So in the NOVELLAS. Those. Tend to focus on D. G. Getting Wall to do something for digi in that usually on the danger things like that, and and that's what cell shock which giveaway book for this interview is one of those things. Lead. US

"I'm excited to see where the state. Thank you doc maybe privately, you'll tell me who is your favorite football team. I can give you a college team. How about that? When we go there sure wine on. Where you can see behind me, I'm a Mississippi State Grad. So Zobel through. We'll go with that as my favorite. All right. Sounds good. Thank you, doc. We appreciate your time. Hey, thanks for having me, Dan Upgrade. Doctor Alan Sills. The NFL. Chief medical officer, and neurosurgeon. I'm not sure where we stand I. Know that some of the marquee players Jj Watt, who said, he didn't want to wear a mask. You know I'm sure you don't WanNa wear masks. But that doesn't mean you're not going to wear a mask or it wouldn't be the smart thing to do in that situation. So. There's. Judging from what Peter King had to say about the Vikings. Their situation at their training camp he was. Extremely. Impressed with all of the safety precaution safeguards that they had there. I hope that the NFL is learning from all these other sports and what could happen. But all it takes is a marlins break breakout, and then all of a sudden. I'm going to have a team not be fully assembled, and then do they forfeit a game. We. Postponing Games. Can't doubleheaders by the way I heard this yesterday baseball is looking at. INNING doubleheaders. If you. You know the MARLINS gotTA. Make, up games, you gotTa Make Up Games, Phillies Yankees. They gotTA MAKE UP Games. Can you do seven inning doubleheaders? That is something that baseball is now looking at? I don't know why baseball didn't go. WHAT'S THE WORST CASE SCENARIO Now, let's work our way back instead of saying, Hey, things look good. Hey, well, adapt one we have to I always start at the very end and then worked my way back. If a team loses their their quarterback backup quarterback as well. Then what happens if a team has five players who test positive? How long are they in quarantine? If you have a game, they test positive on Saturday like the Marlins did, and then you still decide to play on Sunday. Those are the things that I would want to know, what are what are the alternative plans here? And Baseball, if you had a game that was going to be postponed. Even, if it was rain. Are you gonNA make it up. Can you make it up and what about a doubleheader they want to expedite extra inning? Games, and that's why they've started with a runner on second base. So why not expedite doubleheaders in have seven inning doubleheaders, seven inning games. But, you can't say, Hey, baseball's thinking about a seven inning game seven inning games for doubleheaders. GimMe. Worst case scenario. That's why when somebody goes got good news bad news. I, always go give me the bad news. Let me have. They haven't. And if you said Hey, we're GONNA do one game that seven innings, and then the next game will be decided by Homerun Derby. Okay. At least you've thought of this, I just get worried that baseball. It doesn't like they think in the short term. Hey, we're just dealing with this right here. If they were thinking long term, they would have said to the MARLINS. Guys you're not playing on Sunday. That's it not playing. But. They didn't do it and you let your shortstop decide. Go around the room who wants play? I like who's going to say and they texted one another who's going to say, no, I don't feel safe. Boy Hopefully, we can make this all work, but I hope these leagues are looking at worst case scenario just in case something happens because chances are it probably will. We've talked about the NBA with the bubble and feels like. They've done a great job here. I always worried about those who were leaving the bubble on a daily basis in coming back in who worked at the hotels worked at the restaurants handled the food. Cleaned up after everybody. That was my big concern. What are the precautions that they're taking with them? Once you're in the bubble. Then I. Feel like you're safe. As long as you are not going to be around people who haven't been in the bubble on a regular basis and tested constantly, you're only as strong as your weakest link. And that would be my big concern with that with baseball feels like they're making this up as they go along. Football got a better handle on it. It feels like and then you have college football. and. I. Don't Think College football has a good handle on this in the biggest reason is the players don't have a union. There's nobody representing college football players. They have no voice in minutes. And then you have the president of the. NCAA. WHO has no real voice? The emperor has. No. Clothes. More camera is just a guy who you know. Hey, we gotta have the president of the NCAA okay. Good luck with that. What power does he really have here? And those players have no voice. and. Those players who aren't getting paid. Now, you can say they're getting a scholarship. They're not getting paid to go and play football. The pressure on a college football player is enormous. Because the amount of money that's at stake for those universities of all of their other athletic departments. Based off of football you got to play. You gotTA show up even if students are on campus, you're coming back. A lot of pressure and no voice in that. That concerns me. The players have never had a voice. Northwestern tried to unionize back in I. Think Twenty Fourteen. And I don't know if we ever get to that point. Maybe if we get to the power five conferences that you do have a commissioner of the power five, and then maybe you have a players association, a Union for these college football players because I know of two instances where players had scholarships at big ten schools. New Coach comes in and he doesn't want them on scholarship and he runs them off like you have no representation there. These were two players and I met their families separately and they told the same story. Because they wanted somebody to hear what happens. We forget about the college football player. When it said and all it's done, your career is over, we don't care what happened to you. There's no follow up health. Wise. There's so many of these players former players who are walking around that have. That have had concussions. There's nobody there to help them and I hope that you know, College. Athletics Certainly College football the power five conferences understand that in give these players of voice. Before there is a revolt one day, we'll take a break. Your phone calls are coming up. We'll check in with the PELICANS on Zion Williamson, why is it a game time decision and is it going to be a game time decision the next game as well? That's coming up Dan Patrick Show.

"Chief medical officer Dr Allen Sills back on the program Doc. Thanks for joining us. How are you today I'm doing great. Dan Thanks for having me back is the NFL players safer in the bubble or in camp? Then the average citizen is. I would say, yes, Dan because I think when we're in our camps in our facilities, we obviously have extensive protocols that cover every aspect of what we're doing. So we've put a tremendous amount of thought and energy and effort is you know together with the Players Association in creating the safest possible environment. So I think when you combine our screening or testing program, all the interventions we put in place are facilities. The way we've reimagined the day. I would say, yes, people are much safer in that environment that they would be out working out in some other bar what has changed since the last time we talked. Well. I. Think we continue to learn from the experience of others forced just wear the viruses going in general. We seen for example, the CDC. Chain some of their guidance about how we clear people and bring them back. We learn more about persistent positive tests and how people can test positive for a very long time. So we're learning literally every day it certainly every week, but I think what hasn't changed his, you know our commitment to being very diligent in. In every aspect of what we do and I think I think there's also an increasing recognition on the part of all, our players, coaches and staff is the we're going to have to do every single day. We got to be consistent and we can't let our guard down because as soon as we let our guard down, that's what bad things can happen to us as individuals and teams to League as all what sport of you learn the most from. That's a tough one. You know what we've learned from everybody. I. Think because we've been in contact not just with north. American sports. But around the world, we've talked a lot with Australian football with world rugby with the Bundesliga with the premier. League. So I think everyone has contributed to our knowledge in certainly I continue to communicate regularly with my colleagues in the NHL. Major League. Baseball. In the NBA and. Say Dan, one of the gratifying things about this, as you look at silver linings, it's been the level of cooperation collaboration among all the league's because this isn't you know one team against the other one league issue other. This is all of us against this virus in. So we've had more communication collaboration than we've ever had, which has been a very positive thing something that will make us all better. I know that you have to look at what if scenarios and I always start with the worst case scenario and then worked my way back. Let's say you have an outbreak like the Miami Marlins Hat, what what is protocol? Well. We look at those cases very carefully. We look at it together with the players, association? With our infectious disease advisors and we take whatever the safest steps are. So we've said that all options are on the table including missing games or or more than one game. If necessary. But I think what you have to look at his each case is unique. It depends on how many people are infected. The time course a lot of factors about that host city. So it's hard to give you an algorithm and say, well, it's this number this number, but clearly, we recognize the we're GONNA have to be flexible and adaptable throughout the whole season. We'll have to respond to these challenges we come up whatever we do. We're GONNA make the best decision it's in the. The interest of safety of everyone involved players, coaching staff at Inter fans as well. What troubled me with the marlins situation doctor is that you had the team voting on playing a game on Sunday after four players at tested positive. So they they had a team member, a player making this decision, and I'm wondering about with the NFL, can you have a neutral third? A neutral party or somebody who's not with the organization reports to you who's able to make these calls if a situation like that arises. I can't honestly speak to the specifics of that situation Bam, but I would just say what what we envision is got a situation arising with positive test results obviously, that gets immediately reported to the League to the Players Association and and that would be a league determination. So again. I my staff conjunction with the Players Association Medical Staff, are infectious disease, experts. We've put our heads together and make what we think is the best decision in real time. Any changes in the equipment. You talked about a face mask shield. Last time we talked, where do we stand on that? You know we're still evolving that. So are to level now where players back in camp and they can actually use it, and so we're we've distributed those across all our clubs. We're going to have players using them actively and giving feedback to the design engineers, and so I think you'll continue to see that product evolving change and we'll get you know subsequent versions of it. So we're still very excited about the idea. We think it will have a place on the field in. So we'll see his players use it more as they're getting into their camps. We're excited to Kinda see where that whole project goes, what about wearing a mask as we have to do in everyday life. Can of football player perform while wearing a mask or do you have modifications to that mask for players? Yeah. Again, we've worked out a lot of different designs. They're sort of net gator type design that you that you can pull up that you've seen. Some people uses a face covering on. We've had some players have worn those in the league over the past few years. If you've seen that you know in the pre code era, so I think you'll see some players wearing that there are obviously other mass options at the end of the day. Again, I think you're GONNA. See players. Players adapt a lot of these different tools to increase their margin of safety. Certainly, you're going to see everybody else in and around the sideline game officials in it every time someone's not on the field performing in mass because I think we've all learned one thing masks work. They are absolutely key in there. They're very essential to preventing transmission as disease. So really, it's not exaggeration to say that more time we spend in masks and the more people we get masks better off. Wrong. But there's no mandate to have mask on players when they're practicing are in games. We haven't reset point of agreement yet with the Players Union. I think it's. We'll see where this design takes us, and if we can get to resign design, we all feel comfortable. We might revisit that idea, but it hasn't today. Now, there's no mandate there does the NFL one that. You Know Dan, out on everything that makes us safer. So I I would certainly hope we arrive at a design that offers protection doesn't hinder performance and I. Think if we do that, it would certainly be something to see everyone adopt and I. Think if we can hit that sweet spot, if we can find something that does offer protection does not hinder the. The way that guy's free their communicate on the field, I have to believe the players will buy into that. They would want that at the end of the day. They WANNA be safe as well, and if we can do that in a way that doesn't inter- formats, I believe it's something. They'll all want to be a part of what team do you root for. That's a loaded question you know. I always say, Dad, it's a little bit like children. You Know You love your children summer easier to love. But? No, no, no favorites I'm just grateful that she has to work with all of them really appreciate and let me say that it's all kidding. Aside, the amount of work that our teams have put into getting ready and opening these training camps is just phenomenal. We we've seen every level of the staff. Just, completely reimagined, redo their facilities and I've talked one on one I talked with coaches every day. I mean. These are people who are not usually want to change things they've gone in and completely changed everything about their building in about the way they practice. So I, just tip my hat to the work that's gone on, and we know there's a lot more work in front of us. It's going to be really hard, but.

"About our fancy frame TV. Over the last couple of weeks on the PODCAST and I guess also on the blog. If you've seen our last couple blog post, we've been talking about how we've been pleasantly surprised that the furniture we moved down here for the most part fit very well and naturally into our new home. Yeah, it is kind of amazing to say. We showed a bunch of stuff in the. The pod I mean we did have measurements for rooms, and we did have an idea of what we're going to wear, so we weren't just like willy. Nilly putting a bunch of things in the pod, but we knew as we loaded the pod like there is going to be a margin for error I'm sure we'll get there and something won't work the way we thought it. It would because there's really nothing like being in a space and moving furniture around like you can try to do that in your head. When you're not in the space, it's really hard to land on the right. You Know Group of objects in the right. Lay Out I think anytime. We've moved houses. There's been this process where like some of your old furniture doesn't fit in. In the new house, for whatever reason like maybe it's because of the scale of the peace or the exact dimensions, or even a style, but you know you have these pieces that just don't land and work I think we expected that issue with at least some of the things that we brought down, but again we're grateful. Most everything has pretty much worked as it is. Is Yeah were even things John was like I. don't even know why we're bringing this. And then we brought it, and like played a very important role like remember. We talked about those bookcases that we're using in the kitchen and they have like so much storage. They're basically like extending our cabinets using as a pantry fought to leave those in richmond or sell them in Richmond. Richmond because I didn't think we had a place for them. And Sherry was right and the table in the kitchen. There's like a round white table that was like a game table in our old house in the bonus room and John was like I can't picture for people being able to eat here. I can't picture it fitting in the kitchen and it like probably won't live. Live there forever, but it is so good for now and if it hadn't made the POD, we'd be in trouble once again. Sherry was right so I think it's been nice because we didn't have this kind of like panic buying mode when we got here. We're like we don't have a kitchen table shot for one real quick and pretty much the only things that we have. Have had to buy at least the big furniture pieces we've had to buy have been things we knew we'd have to get because we didn't bring them with us. Like our beds like we had to get an outdoor dining table and other side note as we were packing the dining table with outdoor dining table in Richmond, and it was routed in the legs fell off. So we basically bought the same sized table. It was a different finish in a different color, and it works perfectly like I'm actually really glad that one did fall apart in Richmond. Has that one was like seven years old and disbar gone, and even informed the decision like that one was would, and it was rotten, so we got a metal and resin one. That will not, so you know some things were just dumb. Luck. Something's were strategy, but whatever it is that led us to where we are. We both kind of expected to land me like okay so now we need a rug dresser aside table six lamps five. Cheers. But you know what I'm saying I thought we'd land and have this list of like huge furniture items we needed, and it's like all we really needed. Where the things we knew we needed off the bat like beds. Yeah I, think that's the point here is that we've been grateful that we haven't had to go on like this sudden shopping spree and the other thing I wanted. Wanted to point out that was interesting. As we are shopping for one of the other items. We knew we'd have to get which has been window coverings, because as you have probably seen on instagram. We've been using packing blankets. It's very swanky at Casa Peter Sick. Let me tell you packing blankets. They disintegrate into like a black soot, and it's all over your window sills, it's. It's all over your floors, but we have started to receive some of the curtains that we bought, and it highlighted something interesting about downsizing and going to a smaller house that I think we consciously have known, but this particular purchase was like a good case study to help us quantify one of the benefits of living in a smaller space and furnishing a smaller space I think. Think things that are more obvious to everyone is like Oh to clean and less to pay to heat and cool like we said that over and over again. It's like less maintenance if I only have one bathroom I, worry less about maintaining four showers, enforcing them leaking and all that stuff, but I think this is one of those things where it's like when we say it. But it's just a thing we consciously knew, but then it was really interesting to see the actual numbers I. Actually don't know all the numbers. John is going to reveal them to me. Yeah, so I actually went back and tallied how many curtain panels and blinds we had to buy for our Richmond House, which as you probably heard? Her say is more than twice the size of the house. We are now living in Florida. So obviously had more windows to cover. Yeah, I can't wait to hear the numbers. John was like their staggering. I was staggered, so keep in mind. We didn't have curtains on every window so like not in the kitchens, bathrooms or anything like that and having a dining room, either yes, so this is not representative all the windows, so we had actually more blinds, and we had curtains, but we had twenty four curtain panels in Richmond. House K Twenty four, and I should point out. Out In recent months before we left, we were starting to like double up. Some of the curtain panels to make them look thicker right. Some have always been double in our living room. That was four panels instead of to on that big picture window in our office. We had a big picture window with four pounds instead of two. Did you just count those to? Double them because I couldn't remember what was doubled, so the twenty four number is probably closer to like thirty or thirty two. Yeah, that's what I would guess. We also have thirty blinds throughout. The houses were also. Roughly sixty two different window coverings. That Jack's yeah I mean. It was a lot I. Remember hanging those. It took us forever and I remember buying them, and it was so much money. I remember the blinds. We were like Oh. Do we need lines? Backpedal real quick and when we got home depot and saw the total. Yes, so again thirty ish curtain panels thirty blinds. Are you ready for the Florida numbers? I can't wait in Florida instead of thirty. We only need eight curtain panels, eight curtain panels versus thirty well, there's the saving instead of thirty blinds. We need five blinds. Five lines is my favorite and. And we're being very specific about these lines, guys. No one has researched blinds more than us. We will share what we pick when it arrives and we're sure we like it I. Don't want to jinx it. Hence all the packing blankets because we're taking our time and I also just for fun also looked at the number of curtain panels in blinds that. That we had to buy for the Beach House and the duplex. That's going to be like a million. A million I mean feel like we're. It's going to be close because it was three kids nine bathrooms like it was six seven, eight nine hundred ten bedrooms like it's a lot of juices well, and it was also fifty two curtain panels O and And Forty two blinds, no regrets right. We're glad we had curtains and blinds, but it sure is nice. When what did you say it's eight and five here in Florida compared to when we tally all of those previous homes that we sold eighty two curtain panels and seventy two blinds is so insane. Yes, and we ironed in hand

So we'll have all that detailed out again will work hand in glove with players. Association on what that protocol. It's like what would be the minimum. That somebody would have to sit down if they tested positive. Well Again I. think that's that's based upon public health guidelines, and in certain guidelines depending on whether you have symptoms when the last time your symptoms were, what your test status is hard to give you an exact number, but I mean I think you're looking at someone missing at least a couple of weeks time. After a positive test it's not going to be test positive one day. You're back towards days later that there's going to be a time interval in there again. Our knowledge on that may continue to evolve a little bit. But I'd say at a minimum. It's going to be a couple of weeks time. What will face mask? Look like this this season. Will the any alterations to them? It's interesting. You mention that you've probably heard that. We've been working with a group of engineers to look at some alternative designs of the mask with sort of an extended shield covers parts of the face mass. I have to say when I first heard about the idea. Thought is probably the dumbest thing I've heard. I didn't really think it would work, but as I looked at the designs and the creativity, Amax, you credibly impressed with at work and so again we're working together with engineers from the players association. And actually trying some of those models on different players and getting feedback, and we'll see where that takes us, but I'm optimistic. We may be able to find something that's very useful there again trying to help prevent respiratory droplets from being spread around while zeal. I know when we look at these athletes and they're young. They're healthy, but is a three hundred pound lineman healthy. Are they more at risk than somebody. WHO's a running back? Who is a ways to twenty-five? Yeah I think that's something we're still trying to learn. There's still so much about this virus that we don't know. We do know obviously again. Age and certain other factors medical co morbidity. for more risk, but how that translates into an elite athlete population. We just don't know I. Think the take home messages we gotta do all we can to keep everybody safe whether it's a three hundred pound lineman or a two hundred pound kicker quarterback We want to try to mitigate risk for everyone in their. Keep them safe as possible. And as I said if they do become newly infected, get them isolated treated appropriately so that we don't spread around so the rest of the team. Go Wash your hands. Good luck in surgery. Thanks we always do that part and I chat on. Thank you, Dr Dr Alan Sills the NFL chief medical officer, and over by the way a neurosurgeon kind of show off there I was gonNA. Showing my my knee surgery and my shoulder surgery and get some tips, but you know he does. He does big big boy stuff. They neurosurgeon stuff they're. Imagined Oh. I wonder if you're a neurosurgeon. Do you look at those other doctors and you wait your interest? Your a bar or no convention, Medical Convention, and like do the neurosurgeon hang together. And then they whisper about some of the other guys. Always an orthopedic okay. Yeah, how's it working on toes? Yes John Lifesaving Hammer. Toe, pursue. What are we gonNA, do what he's. Losing Wizard. He's operating on the brain..
"sills" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"That's just a gut feeling that I have those would be the two teams that I'd keep an eye on. Maybe the chargers do. But I'd. tyrod Taylor there. And maybe capper Nixon upgrade over tyrod Taylor. I mean normally he would be. He's better, quarterback or more talented, but tyrod. Taylor's been playing and captaining, because not and you got Justin Herbert. How long does Justin Herbert sit before? He's GonNa to get a chance to play. Because if capper knicks really good, and he's what thirty two he might be your quarterback for two or three years as a possibility there. And you use the number six pick overall in Justin herber. You don't have quarterbacks in the top ten to have them. Sit for a couple of years. Yeah, Talk. Is it worse to bring Catholic in and not sign him or not touching it all getting people's hopes up because I brought him in, and he's tease them, and and you decided to discard him. Him in altogether if you weren't serious about adding and you don't know that. I mean nobody knows if he can play. So you have to bring him in. You might bring him in and say you know what he doesn't fit. That was the big thing that was the. That was sort of the code filler system. Given what the systems are now in the NFL, he fits some systems here. And he's better than you know a majority, these backup quarterbacks, or at least the potential to be better than them, but if you're bringing him in I think you have to bring him in and have a football mindset of Kenny play, not. Hey, we just want to give you a chance here. David in Texas then we'll take a break David. Six four to twenty. It's like in our society. Everybody's asking for change. Everyone's protesting for change so now change is beginning to happen, and it's like we're questioning the motives of it. It's like we're not going to be happy unless an owner or some leader in society. Yeah, I was wrong the. Winds shifted now now. I'm born in this direction. If we don't hear that, we're not as willing to accept this change that's trying to happen. Are you for Cabernet getting a chance here? Yeah. But kind of like what trump said part of what trump said if he can go out and prove that he's good enough to compete than he and everybody else that situation should have a chance. But he's should have had this chance for the last couple of years and thanks for the phone call David. It's just that the president now member he called Capri can sob when he was kneeling. That scared these owners. Because you had Mike Pence, the vice president showing up at a colts game just to leave before the game started when Kapernick was taking a knee. Players taking knees so. This to me, you talk about winds of change. That's when the president said this. About Kapernick as a football player. I think I think some opinions changed considerably. It felt like it might be okay to bring him in now to see if he can play all right, we'll take a break when we come back. We're going to talk to the chief medical officer of the NFL about some of the concerns coming up and Dr Fallacy the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases a little bit later on Pat Forty has some good stuff on the. The situation at Oklahoma. State with Mike Gundy. Have that for you coming up? Your phone? Calls are welcome. We'll settle on a poll question. We got play of the day stat of the day. It's approaching fourteen after the hour. This.
Aboriginal People of Australia
"I'm just I'm shot and we are the outside. We're podcasts at syndicated to bursting your bubbles and opening up to new perspectives. And this time we're GONNA be talking about something been learning about the past few months. Which is the rights of Indigenous People in Australia? If you've been listening to our PODCAST You know that just Ni- are from South Africa in the United States separately. I'm from the United States justice from South Africa and we are not aboriginal people or in any way But we were very passionate about doing an episode on this topic because we've seen a lot of injustices in the world and in our travels yet to expand that all. Yeah well yeah like Charlet said neither of us are from indigenous groups and you were both like the colonizers in much. Yeah but I think that's one of the reasons why it's so important for us to be talking about this And finding a way to like raise awareness for the indigenous groups because a lot of the time people don't think about that and even back home in South Africa were like we've had a really good peace movement. People still don't like acknowledge the true ramifications of colonialism that has been that has had on our country and it's the same thing that we've noticed in Australia is people are very unaware in a lot of places and very very ignorant and I think it's important that we educate ourselves and talk about it. Yeah one of the reasons. I'm very interested in. This topic is during two thousand sixteen. When the d'appel North Dakota access pipeline was happening and the injustices that I saw towards native Americans really inspired me to try and make a change and currently have been researching a bunch on that topic and have connected to connected it a lot towards environmental racism and so that is why I wanted to focus on this topic today in our podcast super important to talk about. We're going to be going through some of the main terms that we're going to be using because this is different to our usual content. You might not know what's actually going on First term to talk about is colonialism. Now there's a whole lot of different types of colonialism but essentially one will be talking about most is settler colonialism and this is when one group of people move to another place moves to someone else's land and basically tries to take over that land so that can be in the case of places like Stralia and the states where people showed up and then said this is our land and that means everyone who was living here before copy here anymore or it could be in the case of like my country and South Africa were a small minority moved there but then took complete control even though the majority of the population were the people that were living there before So that's kind of what colonialism is. It's this inclination of like trying to take over the world in a way. Colonizers are the people who call our Joan people for the first nation people of Australia. The oldest people who've lived on the land and fun fact average Australians are actually the oldest surviving culture in the world with like traditions that date back sixty thousand years which is insane pretty amazing. Yeah Yeah and the colonizers that actually came over were the British. They were so they needed a place to put their prisoners in their convicts. They found Australia and they were like sick. Let's put these people here and one of the reasons because of that. Australia is very difficult back then to live on for people who don't know the land because of the amount of things that can literally kill you hear. The prisoner is like a really good experiment. Sent here I because it was like well then we can live. Yeah no yeah. It's a it's an intense story so the first colonisation of Australia happened in seventeen eighty eight. That was the first time that people actually settled on this land and before this there were more than five hundred indigenous groups that inhabited Australia and the way it worked back then was like it wasn't just one country. It was five hundred countries essentially or maybe less or more depending on the groups but it was divided up in the similar way to Europe and there are about seven hundred fifty thousand people living on this land cultured. Like I said that's developed for sixty thousand years and there were over three hundred languages spoken in total whereas today only about one hundred and forty five languages spoken with only eighteen being strongly spoken by lots of people so you can see immediately like the decline of the culture in the effect that that's had on original people because of this one. The colonizers were coming over. It's hard it was very hard for them to unite as like an aboriginal front. Because there's so many different tribes and Like currently like when it was being called as they're probably like still wars going on between tribes then as well so it wasn't like everyone is a one aboriginal nation it's all divided separately into different groups And then when we get further into so we're GONNA talk a bit about like how it is now and why that's difficult even unite. Today one of the things that was actually released pricing to us. Because we've spent seven weeks or six weeks now in Australia. Learning about indigenous cultures learning about that kind of stuff and we spent a week in Alice. Springs the rest of the time we've been in Melbourne. And what I found really interesting is when we first arrived in Melbourne we were welcomed by one of the aboriginal groups were under people with a smoking ceremony which is a typical welcome into the land. That when we went to central Australia near Alice Springs. We were told by the indigents people. They're like they don't have the thing and it was kind of a weird moment for me because I automatically assumed like. Oh this is what they blame. Everyone does it. Yes accents but you eventually realize that like those three hundred five hundred nations like were completely different groups and spanning across the country completely different cultures which makes it really difficult to unite even today so aboriginal. Australians are still facing a ton of issues today a ton of oppression from the White Australians and this is largely in part due to just the history of this country and the history of the racism that so institutionalized into the country's law so when the British first arrived in Australia they said Yeah. This land is free to take. Because they didn't recognize the aboriginal people as Human Beings. They were classified as flora and fauna so basically plants animals not human beings and that sentiment existed for years and it let it has led to a lot of the attitudes that sill exists today even if people are no longer classified that way they're classified as human beings like a It's still rings true. In the way the government treats these people one really good example of this In central Australia. There's this thing called the green credit card. Basically if you're aboriginal half of your income comes in whatever form you want and the other half needs to go on this card that basically you can only spend on assesses which they classify as clothes and food alcohol or tobacco products or anything like that. So if you're thinking of buying a house nope And this is a very big issue because they're basically controlling like where where you go in life if half of your income is stuck on that card then like that's that's it you know and this is just one way that the government really keeps control of Aboriginal people whereas they justify it as A. We're helping them because like many of them have addiction problems and things like that one in reality like no colonizers introduced alcohol to them and introduce tobacco products. And it's really actually your fault that that may be a problem in some communities but the people should still have a right to choose because they're people and this is where the whole flora and fauna thing connects back. I think it's a real real problem like this idea. And it was something that we encountered a fair amount in the northern territory yet. Definitely yeah we got to spend time not only with aboriginal communities but also like the settlers there and it was quite harsh because it was an attitude of we know best yes coming from the white people which was pretty horrific and you can see that through like that green card. We know best what you should be doing with your money rather than dealing with addiction problems at the source. Would you most frequently accident in? My research comes from like loss of culture. Loss of tradition like the oppression that's been placed on these people definite instead of focusing on that. It's it's just putting a band aid over the problem.

The 123s of Window Boxes
"Going to start out with a plant Rama. One two three the first the second and third things that you should know or do if you want to start a new garden project or a practice and today. That project is window boxes. I want to put window boxes on the front of my house. Ellen what is your number one thing I need to know. The first thing you need to think about is what floor. Are you going to put them on and that relates directly to how those window boxes are going to be attached because if you are hanging them from her second or third floor window boy do you need to be sure those are solidly fixed in place? You do not WanNa conch somebody on the head with a window box that is poorly attached. And since my background is is from. New York City. Where oftentimes these window boxes and containers were many floors above the sidewalk? This is something you really need to think about. If you're if you're on a first floor window probably going to be walking underneath those window boxes and you can use a more casual hanger that may fit over the sill but if you are planting your window boxes on a higher floor you need to wire those in place. So that even the strongest wind or scampering squirrel is not going to knock it loose so I say I know that's not fun. It's not fun like choosing great plants but it's essential. You got to do that. I my number one was noticing what direction the front of your house face. That's a great one. I didn't even think of that. Because if it's facing north you're going to need to use shade loving plants now. Nothing wrong with that. Of course there's some great Begonias ferns and everything. But if your expectation is you are going to have window boxes with cascading geraniums like you see all over Europe and the friend of your house in deep shade. You might need to either rethink the plan for window boxes in the front of your house or changed the expectations that you have and Ellen your point about the securely fastening them made me also think about an alternate number one which is how am I gonNA water these boxes yes now. That was my number three. Oh well then we'll get to that. So what's your number two? My number two was about soil and drainage because lots of times you by the window boxes and they may not have drainage holes in the bottom and if they don't you need to get out your handy dandy electric drill and I would put one inch hole six inches on center for the length of your window box. So that you get good drainage in there and then I would put a lightweight. Potting mix do not fill those window boxes with soil from your garden. You want them to be lighter weight and you want them to drain quickly. So I say get those drainage do like how. I'm like putting two into one because I'm cheating so my number two is making sure you have adequate drainage and a good lightweight soil that is also going to drink quickly. That was my number three that same wavelength. What was your number? Two pretty amazing number two is to measure where you want them and decide what size and types of boxes you're going to install. Are you going to have wooden boxes? That have plastic inserts. Or are you going to? Ha- want them removable. Or are you going to just have the plastic boxes that you buy at the store and you're going to put them on brackets of some sort So that was I was going for style of boxes in number two and then I was going to go back to function in number three which was the drain the tools and the soil which I was also sneaking to well. You know it's interesting. You mentioned style because what the front of Your House looks like is probably going to influence the style of window box that you choose and where you live is also going to determine the style of window box because if you live someplace where you can have. That Window. Box planted year round. You might go for something more substantial. That's going to be longer lived like would because you could have. You have a rotating display you know you could have ornamental cabbages and cycling's in Viola in the wintertime depending on where you live or you might if you live someplace really really cold. Just fill those window boxes with an interesting arrangement of of bows and berries in the winter. So I didn't even think about that but that's a really good thing to consider the color the style the material that the box is made out of in number three ellen which was the holes and the fresh potting soil. And I I I also snuck. I really cheated. I stuck a third thing and that was to always. Every year mix a tablespoon of inorganic granular fertilizer. Such as plant tone With a tablespoon of a time release synthetic fertilizer. Azmacort is probably the most common one available if you do that every year with fresh potting soil. Your plants are going to grow gangbusters all summer long without any additional fertilization need it. Now I have to ask a tablespoon. That's for a window box. That's how big twenty four inches. Maybe thirty anywhere from twenty four to thirty inches cat would be good. If you have a really huge long window box underneath a picture window you probably want to do two three times that amount. Okay all right. Well my number three again. I'm cheating was to plant and water now. The planting is the fun part right. That's the best part and don't be afraid to really fill those window boxes up and make them look gorgeous. They're there to give you pleasure and you also want to make sure that you choose plants that live well together you're not gonNA put a succulent next to affirm that needs constant soil moisture so choose your plants wisely and think about how you're going to water them if they're on the ground floor you go round with your host of your watering can. But if they're on the second or the third floor you might want to consider drip irrigation and I. I know that I'm a big fan of drip irrigation. And it's not something that likes quite as much but for me doing it for clients it was really essential because I couldn't I couldn't trust them to water when things needed to be water. That's why they had me there. But a simple simple drip set up on your window boxes really takes away that responsibility and makes it much easier for you to do the other things for you to dead head for you to fertilize for you to groom your plant. It just takes that chore. Off of the schedule Ellen. I'm all for drip irrigation. I just don't if I had a magic wand and have it instantly installed yeah containers. I'd do it in a second. It's just a little bit too lazy to research and make the opposite of lazy seal. I'm just going to say that right now but we all have our priorities. Yeah so one. Two three window boxes a lot of fun a few simple decisions to make but as Ellen said it's all about your own pleasure
Seed Starting Tips From Joe Lamp'l
"Back? Joe How. How are you Margaret? I'm fine trying to hang in. There was apprised. You have anything left in the after trial and all those damn see he's Giddy boy so you've been growing from seed confidently or at least I thought so for years and then you sort of went went wild this last year with these extra trials and I mean you know I would look at your instagram photos and videos and you were like in the jungle of seedlings and there was somehow however ever a method to the madness so tell us the truth. How many seedlings did you grow and explain sort of the mad scientist process? That went in prepare into preparing to do this course on sites and I think I'm as guilty as anybody when my exuberance in over enthusiastic nature takes over so I had I lost Canada. Pack had Margaret in each packet has a minimum of twenty five seats. I would say I was in the neighborhood of a couple thousand seedlings every round the trial. So about fifty. Two to fifty to sixty see trays in each trae had at least eighteen sales and some had seventy two cells so you can understand why. I'm a little delirious. I sort of lost count and lost in the jungle. But it's not a bad thing so we're their parts of the seeds starting says that you are particularly uh-huh determined to sort of get to the bottom of things that had maybe stymied you year after year that were just super confusing like in five different resources or different books or online sightsee five different recommendations. Were there yeah. We're there like certain things you were trying to figure out in particular couple in particular in one is certainly was the alighting lighting continuing to evolve. And you know with led grow lights is not just their led anymore it's what spectrum of led lights. Do you want. And how strong do you want it. And how how high do you hang it and how your plants respond and is it worth it to spend all extra money on a superpower. Led light if you're just growing seedlings to put outside six weeks later. I mean I had so many questions. And that's the thing I'm I'm such a curious gardener myself I just feel like I gotTa know everything and why not share it with the rest of the people. What's the crash test Gardner Alloy number of your speaking of light so we can start there so a number of years years ago Dr Thomas Borkman of Cornell. He's a crop physiologist who studies the effects of Environmental Stimuli on plant growth and their development particularly in vegetables and that's his whole career and he has like a laboratory in his specialty. Is You know vegetables. Vegetables seasonings like how it's physiology all G of how they grow. And how can we do better with them. And so forth and he advises you know the nursery and farm agriculture industries and. He told me that in the home seats starting environment. The number number one thing we can do to improve results and especially prevent leggy seedlings is to improve the light. You know that was and there. There's a lot of other factors that affect affect how seedlings develop But the light was the thing an and you know he was like Margaret. No you know think thank you even though the tell all your people even though the window sill looks bright. It's not right and tell them that. The old fluorescent Sir a lot less light than the T- fives saves and and now he would say and the led is but what did you end up kind of. Did you come to a conclusion about light because I mean clearly. I'm I'm on the fence. You can hear it in my voice you know. I'm not changing out. I T five fluorescence which I have mirrored. Would you sell reflective interior. The interior of the hood is reflective. So you get a little extra light. Yes do really well with those I did well with regular fluorescence for a million years or shop shop light for a million years before that but I don't know like where we're wh what did you try. And what do you feel about it because I know you had crazy pictures pictures of like. Is this your basement or where is this place that you do. All this I call it my seats starting room but it's just the I guess the breezeway from going going down in the basement out to the door my garden. So there's this about ten foot wide space in. It's probably about twenty five feet long. And so that's my my laboratory starting starting all these seed trays. And it's right outside my office and so the challenge for me is trying to get through that area without getting distracted and getting sucked into the world of watching seeds. GERMINATE ORNATE I'll stand there for ten minutes seen about a notice a seat a sealy move just because it's grown a little bit in those ten minutes that I was there right but to your question I did in fourteen different light trials and so I tried every type of not every type of light. There is there so many out there but I went from the classic old fashioned old school shop. Light right to stop lights with the led inserts to shop light led lights that all come together as one unit. So you can't change out the lights you get you get buried. Read the light spectrum of the forescent tubes I went from you know low Kelvin. At three thousand zero. Hi Kelvin. The sixty five hundred tests color temperatures I went to the led. Eddie lights and I went to the type that has just what appears to be a clear white light which is just what's called full spectrum. which is all the frequencies that sees and I did dual you'll band led's which is Focusing on the red and the blue which we now know plants respond best to from a vegetative standpoint so I try those against everything else and and then the the Grand Allie was I splurge for a really expensive. Led full spectrum girl like the cost three hundred dollars and it was two thousand watts. And I'm like wow. This is a big light and it really was. It was twenty eight inches wide and our long twenty eight twenty inches wide so it covered the whole shelf in so over over multiple trials. I put them all up against each other head to head and if you're asking for my conclusion it's fascinating because on the super expensive grow light it really does perform uniquely in. If you're trying to have things go to fruit or flower indoors you need a light like that right but if you were just trying to get ceiling caught along for four to six weeks whatever likes you have can work. What I learned Margaret is that you just have to learn how now your light works with the plant? You're going underneath them and learn how to position those lights over the plant and learn how many hours a day you need that. Have that light on in. How does that plant? Get the optimal amount of light coming out of what you have. So you don't necessarily need to go buy one you just need to understand better relationship between the light and the plant and had to get the most data both right and I. I just think I'm just like if we had some sound effects I would go ding Ding Ding. Ding you know. I'd love that answer right because because I again. I'm an old gardener. I and you know forty something years ago. I was using shop hood with a cool and a one cool light and one warm white eight fluorescent and I mean they hardly put out anything if you compare them to the sun outside on a day in May when seedlings would germinate themselves in nature As as Dr Borkman again at Cornell explained to me but but it's a lot of light if you know how to use it and the things that you have to know is how warm is what's being emitted from that a tube. So how close can you get because you WANNA get close but not so close that you toast the baby's cooking you know what I mean and the led's cooler are they. They don't have the heat commission is at so they're considered more efficient for the whatever wattage they are. They're considered more efficient because when the power is coming out of the white it's going to to place it's going it's going to put out the light and it's going to put out heat and so the less heat the more light and vice versa right. Led's do a better job of of being more efficient in that they're putting out more light but the thing about What we often misunderstand about those lights is that we think brighter is better in indepth plants perceive the same way we do but they don't you know they they respond completely differently so just because a light is brighter doesn't necessarily make it better right right so so again? I'm feeling happy with my. I don't know if they're you know. Five or seven year old I'm not talking about that. I've been running them for the obsessing bald necessarily for seven years nonstop because again I might use them for six weeks twelve hours a day right in once a year for that little period. Here you know because I'm overlapping a bunch of different crops. But that's it you know it's not I'm not doing a million things. I'm not doing as many fifty two trays times. A billion seeds. He's like you did. And obviously you change out the bulb when the ball is you have to read the instructions and see what the life of the bulb is your. Yeah yeah go ahead I was going to say I mean if you really wanted to geek out on that there. There's an instrument that you can get that measures that like quality around your plants. It's not for the everyday the day. See Starter who doesn't want to invest a minimum of one hundred fifty dollars but there are tools out there which I invested because I was determined to really measure the details tales right. And that's one way that you can do it. is those those light readings. Go down as the bulbs get older. And that's one indication but probably not the most practical things for people to do but using your is in in looking at how the plants respond will really give you lots of clues you might not be able to detect it in the perception of the brightness of that light to the human eye but the your plants plants will tell you they they. It's amazing how much they'll tell you if you just learn to communicate with
Houseplant Takeover with the RHS Gardening Podcast
"Welcome to the gardening podcast house plan special. My Name's Matthew pottage and the curator of our chest Garden Weasley and. I absolutely love house plants. I think I mentioned him a few times. I'm here before and for very very special one off episode. I'm joined by. I want to call them the Queens of house plants and Swiss Bank from gardeners question time and Jane Perron from on the Ledge. And we're going to have a bit of key cow talking about houseplants so yeah this is the first of its kind. I going to call it a podcast swap. Jane ever to you I can you explain to us about on the ledge and how that's GonNa emerged with. The rich. Has podcast today. Well it's a wonderful opportunity to have our listeners. Listen to a podcast and my podcast is weekly. Pool cost per house plants that I've been making taking since February two thousand seventeen and it's basically just my excuse to talk about house plants because nobody else in my family's interested in God. I just decided to start a podcast to provide an outlet for my conversations and also just as a way of being able to email somebody and say. Did you want to have a chat with me about gives Mary and actually have a reason to do it. which is putting on the podcast? So it's just a personal passion that's turned into a bit of a an ongoing thing thing and I have great from here and he's also become a reunites community of listeners. Around the world just great. It's really really good. And and I mean I see you as a bit of a current trend in house plans now. But I mean you've been stalwart kind of a real champion of house plants for years but you know pulling faces the busiest because I started to grow them when I was very young. And obviously I think I've sort of became known ernest houseplant. Lady tonight because of being a whistle looking of previous glasshouses glasshouse supervisor and then subsequently going onto gardeners world when and Jeff Hamilton was the presenter going up to Rutland where he lived. He really wasn't interested in house and so he was really really happy for me to take that over and I guess that's where I really got the sort of title of House Plot Lady House Plant Queen so we are going to start our journey into house plants. I should do some homework and I can see. You've absolutely follow the requests. We've got some beautiful bits of plant material on the table and some very nice photographs on here. Yeah so can you tell me l.. Can we talk a bit about a plan. That inspires your interest into indoor plants. Hopefully we'll see some images of it or enjoy my one because this is just in the mind brain but the one that I wanted to talk about was in Mali. Doc Surgery as a kid and other if you remember they used to be. This is way back. You use those colored lights and they would let your light with your doctor would lie up would earn. And then you'd be called in you put number up and right next to that. was this huge Swiss cheese. Plan the monster delessio which is so trendy now but this was like back in the day this was late nineteen seventies antes and it was just huge and it was going everywhere and they're rare real roots all over the place and I don't think it probably got watered reported more than once in a blue moon but I just sitting there waiting waiting for my doctor's appointment looking at this plant and going. What is it that I come from? Why is that in here? Not Spark Fascination for me and it took require a few years to get my first Swiss cheese plant but it was something that sparked off that interest in indoor plants. And they seem to you when you do see them are ending waiting rooms James. I remember one in the hospital for my hometown. And because they would normally grow up trees on scaling up any kind of structure. They don't need massive pulse pop studio so they can get enormous plants with a small pot roots everywhere and as long as like a corner Selena to or something. Just keep going. And if they've got the ceiling room the leaves get bigger AK- bigger and bigger and I do wonder what not to do with a lot of people who are buying these plans now. And they're buying them as dinky little two foot tall have any conception of what what they're letting themselves in for if they have this plan long-term because they can get monstrously large which is wonderful testing grace about plants. Though isn't it you get the small cutting or you get the small planet. That's just come in fresh. And it's the character that it forms grows older that really fascinates me Aneka so character for how about you. What was your elementary or inspired? Hold on back in the sixties. When I started to collect house falls at dusk us make me sound very old doesn't it? Most of them came to me. As small pieces of succulents CACTI Pelayo names busy leases from other people's Window Sills All they would hand me plants that they had bought an had nearly died. And that's how will my plants came to me so I would get brought along a picture of the candle handle cactus and you can see where it's called the candle cactus because it SORTA got all these candlelight sections it's the plant I still keep now is not Severi Pucci plant. It grows in the winter and my family along the plant we have and they always get it down at Christmas time from my window sill. Because it's very celebration debray shree it produces little flowers on long stalks to like grandson'll and they turned into dandelions. Who is maybe thirty says to me? We need to get the Dan Dhillon plant down waving stunned lines so it's like a Christmas decoration that has to come down in the middle of winter and joins us in the sitting room for a few weeks peaks than it has to go back upstairs again so it's still grow it that to me. It takes me right back things like the Mexican hat ply. They were the social approach. Things that circulated because we didn't have many places to go and Bali them in a funny sort of way garden centers or mass hadn't been invented back then. It was florist shops and private collections. So trying to cast my mind back to early memory. I spent a lot of time with my grandma. If you had a big collection of Palestinians and I was never as a kid taken by lot's of smelly leaves and all red and pink flowers. She grew them for the flowers. They're just wearing very appealing to me but I do remember this higher shelf in her. Greenhouse with these CACTI on and there's one acti- that particular drawn to I thought completely different from all the others and eventually years down the line when she passed away managed to get hold of this cactus which identified as fellow actors. M Roy I am always reminded me of it wasn't in a very good state was nearly brown all the way up and eventually I lost are still quite young kid at the time but then I came across a few years ago and a garden centre it was just in a mixed cactus trae. I was so delighted to see it again and I thought I will have that for my office window so that work because it was grandma. Got Me into plants and that will just be a little bit of my childhood memory. So I wasn't going to bring on the chew because it's quite fierce thing. There's an image talk show you've seen them before but that lovely red spine and quite a Bluey grey body to it. I prefer succulent CACTI in not into CACTI tableau of masses of smaller spines but something like that with the big fat red spines are quite sparse. I just find that quite fficials things. Yeah ed I mean you only need to like walk into a couple of times and I mean my mom would never want to the in house when I was younger. The grandmas because North People have net curtains everywhere. Of course terrible terrible problems with the nets it stuck on
Tips on Seed Starting
"The seed catalogs have started arriving stokes seed. Catalog arrived this week and boy. They've got into disputed awful colored pages. You know you start start thinking about spring now you wanted to take a look at some of the tips young people for seed zied starting because it's becoming more and more popular it's it's an economic. It's more economical way to garden. And it's kind of fun gives you something to do In in in the colder months so talk give some tips on seed start. Well there. There are many mark and and one of the things is do not start too soon A lot of factors go into a seed in terms of buying the right one. Planning it the right way right depth and all those things and it comes down then to We get anxious and a matter of fact. Mark gave me the new catalog as I walked in this morning now. It's not uncommon and for me not to have had breakfast at this point and when a seed catalog makes you start to salivate. It's it's another kind of life but in any event vet mark Seed Savvy is the way it is put make a list of what you WANNA grow period And and know that you're going to have to waste some of the seedlings under most conditions and I'll come to that a little later Prepare for some losses now now All kinds of things happen from disease through too much too little water too much light too little light etc just absolutely no that. Everything isn't going to be perfect. Even the guys that grow them by the millions and literally the millions of all kinds of flowers and veggies and so on Also have some some well significant losses. One of the fellows I met many many many years ago could walk into a greenhouse at a given time a day usually in the morning look through what would be millions of seedlings in this great big greenhouse and he could tell his assistance where to go water. Or we're not to water. He had a sense visual and I think it probably had to do with humidity in the house. All these things he just knew what to do. And and when you're growing them by the millions you better now then Consider grow lights before you even get going now. It doesn't have to be fancy things although there are many any light arrangements that are specifically for indoor use from the standpoint of practically candle power witness and and one little thing on the kitchen cupboard counter to lighting a whole room where the lights actually move around the plant much like the Sun. It does but you can get by as I have done many years. I have an old kitchen table in the basement. I have a Well I have a light fixture true. That has to bulbs fluorescent I have chains that are nailed into the floor Joyce and that is screwed in and then the chains will allow me to put that light rack. If you will downright practically on top of the seed trays then each time. Well each time I look and make an adjustment. I can raise those up. One chain link at a time as the plants get taller. And let's let's go sideways here to where light reduces the length of cells as they grow. Now it's also the savior for plants. Because you have to have light but in terms of turning toward the light in the window sill is because the well the cells on the light side site get shortened. The dark side indoors comes up and over and pushes the plant toward light. All right. We're going to deal with light from the top at this point and be ready needs to do that Mine is rather archaic looking situation. It's not too far from the floor. Drain in case of accidents and it just gets me off to the right start now. I'm suffering right now with some drain. Cuttings I know better. I have known better for years but I used old pots and old soil ahead ahead the cuttings rooted. I put them in the old pots. The old soil I think they contracted disease because of the six that I had going looking. Pretty darn good and all but five and a half of them are gone and I think the other half. I was kind of be gone by noon in any event mark. It's a matter of of using clean soil. Clean seed trays or pots or both for that matter and then labeled them You know better Than and to try to remember which of seventeen things that you're going to grow which which trae either in so label those
plant health, herbs and sustainability with Maya Thomas
"So before I forget Hoyas Hoyas who is the one I forgot is the lovely Hoya Australis. Lisa how Oh gosh forget this plot while he was sitting on my kitchen window sill where normally don't keep toys so I think it just got a little bit hidden in forgotten when I was pulling those plants together. Four my tour But it's a really nice plant. My one is a fairly spokesman that I picked up. I bought it from North One. God Center Regular Listen. I'm a bit of a fan of that particular shop so this was bought their last year. Some time I can't quite remember when there's a smallish plant I think it's actually to cuttings in apart thought and so far it's going up. The stems haven't got long enough to the point where they start to drop down but the foliage on this plant is he's really lovely. If you can imagine a leaf that starts out its margins in the darkest darkest possible green and then in any regular random patton becomes ever lighter to move towards a Pale Green Line Green Center. It's glossy it's leathery. It's a lovely Hoyer leaf and the nice thing about this plot also is that the new leaves come through this rubble of carmine. Mind pink color and you do get flashes of carmine pink in the League as well and in the stem depending on how much light the plants are in so this is really really nice. Hoyer I can't wait for this to get bigger and start trail. It's an easy one I would say it's as easy as you regular Konno's is and so I think it's also fairly easy to get hold of now so it's one of those kind of entry heuer's that will really get you into this particular genus of plants. So I apologize. Lisa forgetting Getting you or do love you very much and yeah if you've got a lease bigger and more developed with lots of pictures so I can see what my plants GonNa turn into so then we go. That's number thirteen. I don't think it's going to be long. Before my recollection becomes even bigger. I just discovered a website in the Netherlands. Is that sells loads of rooted and unrooted Harare. Cuttings there's also somebody in the UK who sells on Ebay so as soon as the weather warms up. Yup Yup I think I might be getting my collection somewhat. Yeah I'm Gung Ho crazy right now but I just can't get enough these plants
Several Shrubs That Attract Birds
"A little bit about some of the shrubs that you can plant. It also are favored by the birds. Well there are for many and and a whole bunch of them that I won't get dimension but let's just start with one of my favorites because it is a shrub. It's it's it's scrub in the woods. It is a native as being scrubbing the woods. But then it can be a wonderful small tree when it's out of the woods and standing in the sunshine. The song called Nanny Berry or era would vibe Burnham now the vibe Burnham is a large family of plants there are short round ones there are medium round ones there are call ones. They're they're mostly white flowering or light pink etc A tremendous addition to any landscape using even several of the same species but different names. This one happens to be the nanny berry. Nanny Berry is a native Norwood's it's Fall fruiting the some of the fruit are are wieder persistent. I I suppose if I were to go out and look around now if I knew where to look I would find some of of the nanny berries that have probably been already a deep-rooted if you will However they they have been a big thing there also a big thing in terms of the thickness of the branches? NEIDL mean Well unruly but they're thick enough that a cardinal for example can harbor harbor inside one of them and Build a nest and feel free to fly into the back side of the planet come across internally to the sit there their nest and so on all of which is again fund its food also during some of the year but it's also fun to find plants that Birds Birds will actually live in now. The berries are not well. Let's just go back to the the fact that the berry comes from a a white flowering plant not overwhelmingly exciting and flowers but it does produce berries that are again cranberry size there here. The blue black if you will of a grape there I've bitten into them. They're nothing I'm going to make pie. But at the same time they they are generally of fruit laden plant Robbins and BLUEBIRDS and thrashes cat. Birds Catbird by the way I heard good one. I'm going to call it midsummer for about a three week period now. I think it's a little shorter than the nesting period. But I haven't heard or seen cat birds for many a year and I remember my grandparents farm In the summertime. You you would look around to see where that can't is and you find it to be a burden it does actually meow the same as a cat. But it's just well it's one of those things now. The the nesting sites is another thing going to think about in all of these plants mentioned And then especially into the Nanny Berry as as I spoke I happen to Well grew grew up in a town home but The the circumstances were such that there was a a Shrub of this right outside my bedroom window and each of several years in a row while I was. I don't know anywhere from five to eight or nine years old somewhere there There the would build in in this plant at just about window sill height so a standing inside being careful to peek through the curtains or at least not move them rapidly and scare. You're off the parents. We could watch cardinal nest develop in that trump watch them come to fruition and then all of a sudden in Some three or or so weeks the the parents are pushing the babies out and You hold well in that case you call the neighbors until them to keep their cats inside little little birds could get going and so on so there. There's all kinds of benefits to the bird and then to us because observations. Something like that as a kid. Probably Help Ben me toward a natural oil. We'll call it profession overtime mark and I were talking about profession's taking in some side courses in geology and soils and things like that that seemed like Mickey Mouse Cork compliments to our main in studies. No no not a Mickey Mouse. Course at all we found that out the hard way Tan some other shrubs and might might might be good. Well there are some others and the plain old staghorn supermac which you gotta be careful. Because it'll send out runners up to a considerable distance and pop up new plants Lance you can chop them off. And it's not a big deal the plant itself handle some rugged sites Son Is Best of course and then to the well to the fall. fruiting eating needs of the winter birds and so on is fantastic. But we're for. That is the brilliant red foliage in the fall I don't even know how to describe that read not quite like a stop light but darn close and then it also is forage in terms of fruit for them. Robbins bluebirds thrashes catbird again. Those things will have it in that plant.
