"For those who are not familiar with your service in the Trump administration, your background. In multiple uniform services, rising to under Secretary of Defense, tell our millions of listers and viewers across the nation a little bit about your background where you came from and how you got to do what you do. Well, it's a very simple. I am the son grandson, great grandson of combat soldiers. I spent my youth at fort sill fort Bragg, and also, as you know, at the royal school of artillery, in lark hill, England. My father was a senior officer in the 82nd airborne division when I was in high school. So my calling was to serve the nation in national defense. My military service has been modest compared to that of my ancestors, but I will say that a formative moment in my life was when the hostages were taken in Tehran. Two things. One, outside of fort Bragg on Bragg boulevard a place you know well, a massive billboard went up that said Iran let our people go. And I had to pass that billboard every day on the way to school and as I got older, I thought, that's what we had become. Under mister Carter, a mendicant, begging the theocratic fanatics and Tehran to let our soldiers and diplomats go. And then the second experience was in my neighborhood. The day the hostage rescue desert one collapsed. And the MPs closed off our neighborhood. They took the name signs off of our homes, and they surrounded colonel Charles beckwith's home. He was the commander on the ground. And president Carter came on that day. And said this was all my fault. I'm the one responsible. That's quite a contrast to what we had in Afghanistan a few months

"Him jump and run around or year round the house things like that because we have to get his level activity up You know a tired pet is one. That's less likely to have some Behavioral problems and it's kind of hard to make a cat run on a treadmill but that's the the basic thing we gotta get him something else to do something else to focus on during his day. Some ways that we can do that When you're not around and try to help feed that need to chew is to give them things that make him work for A treat So rather than just kind of put food out for him. I would make it a little bit more challenging for him they did. You have certain like toys certain kind of a rubberized toys where their sued inside and you can hide treats and hide food in there and we wanna make a kind of almost like a little rubik's cube puzzle where we have to kind of stimulate his mind and his activity in order to get some food items And then there are some places we can redirect this like ke grass that you can grow I would say you know. I would line your sills with it and grew it for this boy because he likes to chew on things. That's something we can direct to And then some of the for things like paper bags those would be a good alternative Not as likely to be damaging But where can provide that for him to hide in plan and if you choose on paper bag no big deal okay and then i moved. I'm sorry i was gonna say part of the problem is he is unusually intelligent. I've grown up with lots of pets. cats dogs bunnies turtles. You name it. And i've never had a pet in in my whole life. That is is highly intelligent as cosmo and that's part of the problem. She's constantly smarting me I think i've managed to set up a sort of a process where i got the advantage. And he's not going to destroy anything and he's so bright. He figures out a way to get what he wants. He's very resourceful And i think maybe that's part of his. Boredom is because he is unusually bright for any pet. That i've ever had so i keep the beyond and i try to stimulate his brain like hand. But i think i dunno. I think that definitely sounds if that's his personality. You know it is. It's kind of like having a kid in class below their ability and their level. There's just nothing to do. So they may get bored and kind of start at public class. He is so smart that we might have to make really fun games for him as ways to find food and treats in the house So that might be something to really think about. What might work in your home situation where you can kind of. Give him some little surprises. And you gotta mix it up because cats will figure it out and keep it fresh all the time. This is a lot of work everybody always says with these but is it worth it. That's all we have time for today. Remember if you need your fix and we all need our sometime.

Betcha tell the one will be on this program and then to make sure that we keep everybody healthy and safe and so much being discussed about vaccination rates in the nfl arians again our second our guest announcing yesterday. The buccaneers are a one hundred percent fully vaccinated team the other team on that list. We believe It's only the two of them. Is the atlanta falcons. We spoke to arthur smith last week. Bruce arians today. The chief medical officer of the national football league doctor allen sills will join us in about eighteen minutes time to give us an update on all of that so much being discussed about different sets of protocols for vaccinated players in unvaccinated players. I'm going to try and make heads or tails of it Four you and if you are somebody out there who is still wondering about whether or not to get vaccinated and what the difference might be will ask dr allen sills to give us the scoop on all of that for you in the same way. I'm sure he is providing it to what we've heard last. Just these seven percent of the nfl player population that is still unvaccinated Either six days or nine days or ten days removed from starting this season which cannot wait last night. College football took center stage. It is back at his back. And it's just you know great looking up and seeing you know college football and the scores in the clock on the bottom of the screen. I like to score the most. Okay i'm sure you do. You see the fans in the stands and the kids hopping up and down and the coaches and screaming and yelling. Gus malzahn looks like a total lunatic on the sideline. I texted you. Sally malzahn just looks insane watching it like i'm no. You're watching him bed because it was ten thirty nine here. The west coast. Ucf in boise state started at nine forty five local time because of a weather delay and i told you last week i noticed. Sound like get off my lawn stuff but college football games way too long if an. Nfl game took his long. It took for boise state and ucf to finish their game last night. People would be freaking out about it then we and then of course college football we need. We need a forty minute halftime. Show we just gotta have that. Nfl twelve minute halftime boom out. Let's go let's go get any the one thing that needs to be addressed in college football and i know i should be sitting here celebrating the return. We stipulate that we love. We love the game. We talk about stuff that bothers us so it can get fixed. Yes and we always come up with a fix after identifying problems here on the richeisenshow we are not one of those two just bitch moan and complain and then not offer a solution. Yeah nobody likes. Nobody likes that like that. Well most of the my colleagues in the media. Just don't mind it. I gotta fix for this. To targeting targeting players safety make sense targeting in college football. Where by the way outside a targeting. These kids are allowed to blow each other up in a manner that the nfl have a yellow flag out and with an end in a manner. In which if the flag doesn't come out people are like where the hell's yellow flag right okay in the nfl. These kids are the number of times. I saw full body weight sacks of quarterbacks last night that didn't get flagged yet that'll lump it into my fixed to this issue but targeting an issue in college football and has been for awhile because it's so damn inconsistent from game game and targeting last night in terms of the inconsistency reared its ugly head right off the bat and of course with big ten raft who I relish referring to on my twitter feed at rich eisen with poop emojis. And i didn't think it would take literally one for one game for the big ten reps the big ten rough and then of course invariably talk about the poop. Emojis was the big ten reps. And i'll see ba- pac twelve ref hold my bureau that sort of stuff and that's because it's inconsistent across the entire college football landscape so last night. The ohio state university at the university of minnesota. I will start with this boy. Is the ohio state university loaded with talent once again as realo. Once i know is a first half football first. Half of football in college football is just gonna be choppy everywhere. It's just always shop if they come out if your team comes out of the gate looking fresh out out of the box like your mid season or postseason form to solid. Congratulations even the ohio state university.

And i was the director of project management and that was a perfect role for me because it was it was a it was a good balance of business skills. But also the technology skills in project management touches all aspects of technology because when you're managing a product a project you have to interface with all the various disciplines within technology organization. So it was. It was a nice transition to become the cio. Which is the top it leader for. The state of delaware was kind of natural for me to go take on that role and again the governor. He really wanted someone who had the experience involved in heavy. It what also the empathy and the knowledge to understand how do the end users in the end customers leverage technology to make their lives better. And so i. I really enjoyed that role. It exposed me to all facets of the government all branches of the government. Jim would love to understand some of the things that you and your team worked on while you were in that role. Clearly you you while you're in the role. You achieved some acclaim you. I mentioned the award that you were you were given towards the conclusion of your time in that role. Talk a bit about some.

Erp system that touched all aspects of the government And we moved a lot of our individual pieces of software to software as a service so we brought in a lot of different cloud platforms that make it easier for us. Rollout various applications allowed easier across you know thousands and thousands of end users so interesting time during that time indeed indeed. Well i wonder if you could also reflect on as you as you look to the future. What are some trends. That particularly excites you technology trends in particular that that that you were excited about as you as you look to the future jim in for is We wanna we wanna build scale. And we think leveraging technology we can do that by leveraging artificial intelligence machine learning more mobile adoption more mobile apps where you're able to apply for a loan fund the loan signing the disclosure on on your phone so we think that's really the future are burbank is. Can we make the right investments to make it easier for our customers to do. Business with us makes sense in. Do you have sort of a series of an ecosystem that you turn to a partners to bring some of that to life. In addition to the people that are on your staff we do we have a number of Partnerships and banking associations that have you know innovation committees in digital optimization canadians and technology committees. And they give us all kinds of recommendations and they vet some mary's vendors for us and then we check them out. And then you kind of make the decision but we're we're right in that sweet spot right now of kind of looking at our current processes we have a current firm coming in to evaluate Some of our processes looking through the lens of six sigma and. Then we're going to start making some very strategic investments of how we can actually a rollout various technologies to make it easier less stressful for our employees but easier for our customers.

"And non profit people and churches and individuals who were utilizing technology and they really weren't aware that we had a lotta these technology capabilities. How easy they were to actually leverage very interesting jim during this What has been a very difficult time for so many businesses. I wonder if you could talk a bit about How your institution of bank has performed across the past year or so to tell about how how things have been although twenty twenty and going in its twenty one has been an extremely challenging year for the banking industry. We actually had one of our best years in twenty twenty compared to twenty nineteen our total assets actually increased sixteen percent year-over-year and for the first quarter of twenty twenty one or total assets are up an additional seven percent What's the the reason for. This is that large-scale corporations Small and medium-sized businesses nonprofits. Local businesses are understanding our mission. And how we provide access to capital to All kinds of communities all across north carolina. And they're getting behind our mission and that's what's driving that growth and a lot of it is just deposits with our institution to help our institution provide access to capital to small and medium sized businesses. So it's actually been exhilarating even though it's been a very very challenging Pass fourteen months. So i'm excited about the future. You mentioned at the outset Jim that yours is the second oldest minority owned bank in the us very interesting and what a trying time. This past year. Eighteen months has been especially for minorities in our in our society here in the united states You were a black executive You've clearly Risen to enormous heights across your career in a number of different institutions. I wonder if you could reflect on the past year and some of the learnings for you personally and some of your own reflections as to kind of where things stand currently in terms of racial injustice and social equity especially as someone who's playing such a important role in in providing opportunities for people to start their own businesses and and live better. Lives it at twenty twenty on and twenty twenty one has been a challenging year for everyone as a african american executive and as as a leader I've had to kind of take a step back and kind of look at the whole spectrum of kind of what's going on because our employees have been stressed our customer base has been stretched our industry because of the pandemic but also the social unrest has been stressed We had a topsy turvy little year. Also so when you just layer all those three things on top of the year It was really a challenging year. And so you know. We met with our employees twice a week through zoom calls for at least seven months last year. We still deal at once a week. We actually had a call this morning and we talked about The case George george floyd murder case. That's pending right now. What the potential outcome could be and We're really optimistic that This country can move forward if we can get past this. George floyd murder trial with The right verdict so it was stressful for everybody. I think it was super important for my management team to kind of reflect back. You know how our employees doing because they're working from home there. They're educating their kids at home. They're doing their jobs. Plus we have all this other stress on top of it including the pandemic..

The Army Is Expanding Allowed Hairstyles For Women
"For years, Most women in the U. S Army were required to wear their hair short or pinned back into a very tight bond that time has now passed. Earlier This year, the Army began allowing women who spent most of their day away from the field freedom from the bun. And this month, the army updated that changed to allow female soldiers. A little more freedom. I actually started Tolo practice braiding my hair because I was so excited that we were going to be able to braid our hair and wear ponytails that Sergeant Nickel Pierce, who works at Fort Sill in Oklahoma, she's been able to wear braids and ponytails since January, and now she's able to wear them untucked so long as they don't go past her shoulder blades, thanks to the update to the updated grooming policy. Major Terry Taylor, stationed at Fort Stewart in Georgia has enjoyed not having to chemically relaxed her hair because locks, braids, twists and cornrows can come together in one or two braids or a ponytail and still meet regulation with lax. There is a style called barrel rolls. And which are hair can be rolled back. Taylor usually pins up the ends, but now she can leave them free if she wants very professional and appearance very neat. And it's very user friendly because that style can last at least two weeks, so that allows me to not have to manipulate my hair is much no loose ends from Major Farren Um, A Campbell in Silver Spring. Maryland. Yes, so in the Army on pretty much known as the bald major within my unit on the only bold female she suffered hair damage and loss after years, wearing her hair in a tight bun. And she's not alone. Many black women soldiers reported having that experience Major Campbell says she's happy. The U. S Army allows her to be bald by choice and do shave my head and it's been a very freeing change within a regulation. It's not just comfort here. Thick hair buns make it difficult for women to wear their helmets properly, making it low on the eyes, sometimes obscuring vision. Ah, problem when you have to aim your weapon. We've all mentioned. Some of these things were long overdue that Sergeant Major Jennifer Francis of the U. S. Army Institute for Surgical Research at Fort Sam in Houston, Texas, She was on the panel that gave input to leadership about updating the grooming guidelines. We are an army and we can't necessarily do everything civilians are doing so we've got to figure out what's best for the Army. And its people. Women now make up about 15% of the U. S. Army, and about a third of those are black. Many see rules against certain hairstyles as outdated at best discriminatory at worst. Major Terry Taylor, now set to retire after two decades of service says how a soldier wears her hair when she's on base does not change her leaf aladi or her professionalism. Who's to say that a ponytail is not professional in appearance? Who's to say the locks are not professional in appearance as long as you can, probably where your headgear and look professional in your uniforms. I think that's what matters at the end of the day. The army now joins the Navy, the air Force and Space Force Yes, Space force when it comes to allowing loose

"To understand millan kovic cycles. We have to understand each of the cycles which the earth goes through individually. There are several of them. And it's gonna take a bit of visualization to get the concept via podcast where there are no visual aids. But it shouldn't be too difficult. We'll start by going through the cycles that the earth itself goes through to understand these need to think of the earth as a spinning top when the top spins. it's usually not perfectly upright. The top will be tilted somewhat just like atop. The earth has a tilt to rotation currently the earth tilts twenty three point five degrees. And that is what is responsible for the seasons. However that tilt known as obligatory isn't static it actually wobbles back and forth between twenty two point one degrees and twenty four point five degrees right now. We're in the middle of such a cycle. The time it takes to complete one full cycle of going from twenty two point one degrees to twenty four point five degrees and back again is forty one thousand years the greater the tilt the more sun the polar regions will get in the summer and the more extreme the seasons are the next part of the cycle is axial procession if you can imagine the spinning top again as it. Spinning the axis of the top is rotating. Circle isn't just tilting. In one direction on the earth the direction of our access in the north currently points to the north star players this temporary over the course of twenty five thousand seven hundred and seventy one point five years. The earth's axis will go in a circle that means that not only will the north star. Not be the northstar at some point but twenty five thousand seven hundred and seventy one years from now it will be the northstar again while the earth is going about it cycles on it's wobbling and spinning access there are also things happening to the earth orbit itself for this part instead of a spinning top. I want you to visualize a spinning plate. The edge of the spinning plate would be the orbiting. The earth and at the center of the plate would be the sun the first orbital cycle is the orbital eccentricity cycle the orbit of the earth around. The sun isn't a perfect circle. it's slightly elliptical the shape of that ellipse changes over time. And how much it deviates from a circle is known as eccentricity the eccentricity cycles between point zero zero three four which is almost perfectly circular two point zero five eight which is more slightly elliptical the changes due to the gravitational pull of large planets like jupiter and saturn. This cycle takes about one hundred thousand years. The next cycle is called app sill procession. If you can imagine that played again this time imagine it. As more of an oval plate as the earth is going around its orbit around the edge. The plate itself is rotating that means be closest and farthest point that the earth is from the sun will change over time. This cycle is about one hundred and twelve thousand years. Finally there's a cycle for orbital inclination. That rotating plate isn't flat and actually tilts and the tilt changes over time as well. This cycle is about one hundred thousand years as well and is very close to the same length. As orbital eccentricity cycle each of these cycles involves relatively small changes over long periods of time however they can compound each other or they can mitigate each other all of these cycles have been known for a while somewhere known back as far as antiquity and others were more recently discovered in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in one thousand nine hundred eighty s serbian astrophysicists named bulletin. Millan kovic put all the pieces together. He realized that these cycles closely followed the patterns of ice ages in particular three of these axial tilt eccentricity and procession all affected the amount of sunlight that would fall on the northern hemisphere. These cycles could either cancel each other out to moderate the strength of seasons or they could compound each other making the seasons even more powerful in particular. What really mattered was the amount of sunlight falling on the northern hemisphere. In the summer why the northern hemisphere that is where most of the land is sixty eight percent of the land on earth is in the northern hemisphere land. Can't store heat as well as water. Which means that ice can form on it. Easier ice reflects sunlight which can cause further cooling during an ice age most. The ice accumulates in the northern hemisphere in the south is can only accumulate to a point before it hits warmer water and the ice will cleave off to form icebergs. Glaciers depend on how much of the ice melts during the summer when the earth is at its maximum tilt more sun is hitting the northern hemisphere in the summers if the orbit of the earth is such that it's at its closest point to the sun. When this happens summers will be very intense and ice will melt when he opposite happens when the tilt is at a minimum and the earth is farther away in the summers ice will not melt as much and glaciers will grow. All of these factors individually are rather small at its closest point to the sun which currently happens on january fourth. Remember back to my episode on why we celebrate new year's day when we do there's only about six percent more solar radiation hitting the earth than when we are at the farthest point likewise the axial tilt of the earth only changes a few degrees however these effects can be big enough when they work in conjunction to cause an ice age. The observed strength of ice ages is usually found to be stronger than the millen kovic cycles would suggest leading some climatologists to think that there might be a positive feedback mechanism at work. Something which causes the planet to cool faster than expected. The timing of ice ages is still being worked on. Kovic predicted that i would be about forty one thousand years apart and that was true up until about one million years ago since then ice ages have come at about one hundred thousand years which corresponds to the eccentricity cycle. Milne kovic cycles aren't just unique to earth like the earth. Mars has all the cycles. I just mentioned except that the timing and the extent of the cycles are different. Researchers estimate that mars has had between six and twenty ice ages over the last eight hundred million years. The martian milankovitch cycle might bring about an ice age every four hundred thousand to two point one million years. Some of you might be wondering if mellon kovic cycles are responsible for the recent climatic changes measured over the last several decades and the answer is no milakovic's cycles take thousands. If not tens of thousands of years to change their effects. Camping noticed over periods short as a decade so the next time you think about the earth as a spinning ball in space realize that the spinning the orbit isn't a static unchanging thing it's always slowly changing and there are cycles within cycles within cycles
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.

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 Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Everybody. I'm Kevin Kugler filling in for Kevin Harlan, who's tied up with the NBA playoffs alongside Paul a favor Kurt Warner. Joining us shortly will be Jim Gray from our Westwood one studios. Jim will speak with the NFL's chief medical officer, Dr Allen Sills, and Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes. And as well as Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. A new Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady. All that and Maura's. We work our way towards kickoff here in Kansas City, and we welcome you to another season on Westwood one. The 34th consecutive year were the exclusive network radio home for the National Football League. Monday nights. Sunday nights. Thursday nights, Thanksgiving the playoffs in the Super Bowl. Are once again all right here on Westwood. 1 70 games it all And it starts right here tonight with last year's champs, the chief's hosting the Texans and Kurt. It is great to be back with you again. We've got some unique circumstances as we kick off this 2020 sees it is so good to be back and unique circumstances, But I think the real story line is We'll be playing football. You know, for so long. I think we were wondering what the season was going to look like we were. Were we going to get to this point? And now we're here. I'm excited, even though it looks Right. It looks a lot different than what we've seen in the past. But you know this. This headline tonight is really about $640 million at the quarterback position between Patrick Mahomes into Shawn Watson to young stars in our business, and I can't wait to watch them go head to head tonight till they went head to head and it's hard to believe that was in this calendar year, but it actually was still in 2020 when they went head to head in the divisional playoffs. One of the most unique first halves of football that I've ever seen. I was here with Trent Green calling the action on Westwood 1 20 for nothing lead to start the second quarter. Essentially for the Texans. They're down 28 24 by halftime, they lose the game. 51 31 a head spinning game. The last time these two teams met and you just have to imagine as they run into this stadium, we always say, well, it's got a clear last season. And you got to start this season and new But come on. Are you telling me either one of these teams is a wave has gotten away from that last game that they played? You think about the Texans. They can't take a deep breath. It doesn't matter what happens in this game. They're going to be holding their breath until you know hits triple zeros at the end. If they have the lead in on the other side, there's gonna be no panic. This team we got Patrick Holmes. What Europe 20 Year up 20 for it does not matter. We believe we can win every game with that guy behind center. So How is that going to play into the psyche? No matter how this game starts, you've been a part of games that have gone big wins. Big losses come from behind. Victories come for buying losses. How do the Texans if at all does that carry into this for Houston? Do they still remember the last time they were in this building and watched the game turned as fast as that one did. I don't think there's any question it's always talked about right is leading up to this. We didn't have pre season to talk about. We didn't have anything else to talk about other than this first game. Would we get to this first game, And as we led up to this game, it was all about 24 to nothing. 2040 nothing. 2049. You don't think that's going through the mind of every Texan that was in this stadium last year. I know it has to be. So how do you quiet that? How do you get to that point, and that's gonna be onto Shawn Watson to lead this team into a hay. Last year is over. We've got this when we've got to make a play after play, and you've got to lead your team with confidence. Every time you step in the huddle. That's going to be a big challenge for these guys to get over that hurdle. Mentally, you hear the crowd behind us. That is not fake crowd. There are people here tonight at Arrowhead Stadium. We look to our right There are cars out in the parking lot, and there was tailgating going strong. When we got here earlier this afternoon. It's got a football field, and by the way, it's cloudy in about 50 degrees, so it really feels like football as we work our way towards kickoff between the Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs more from Arrowhead Stadium. In a moment. This is Westwood one's coverage of the National Football League. Or are suffering and.
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
A Funny Byproduct Of Having To Buy Fewer Products
"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
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.

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.

So he was thirteen years of age then lane kiffin offered David a scholarship to play quarterback at USC at the age of thirteen Kippen was fired in twenty thirteen. He was told they'd still honor the scholarship, but by the time that he was. His senior in high school USC had signed to highly ranked quarterbacks Ricky towns and Sam darnold. So he considered other options David joins us now. David good morning. How are you? Good morning good. But so doing, okay, let's go back to twenty ten when you when you got that scholarship offer at the age of thirteen how did that change your life? Well, honestly, I mean, I it at the time. It was so nude everyone, and it didn't happen really that much. So no, not that many people do what to expect and social media wasn't as big back, then and everything and and I went to a private school move it. So I it wasn't. It wasn't like you was you know, a lot of people really knew what was going on. But definitely got a lot of national exposure and everything which you know, really really kind of made it seem like it was it was bigger than what I thought it was. But you know, I it really did change my life a lot, you know, and put me in the situation that I am now prepared because situation I'm in now. But I wondered and I don't like when schools do this to a kid who's in your kid, you're thirteen and you know, they said it was a real offer. But changes, it may not change you as much as it changes. What others think of you? And now all of a sudden there's. Bullseye on you that all you're the guy who got the scholarship and USC I was wondering did it affect your development at all to get a scholarship while for thirteen. I definitely think it put a target on my back coming up through high school. You know, just every team that we were we were playing against the student's section was always, you know, kinda after me and and everybody kinda wanted to take me out. So it it definitely put a little bit of a target on my back. You know? But I I had really really great parents that raised me, and you know, taught me how it's really you. Don't no matter what what's going on in your life that to be able to stay level headed, you know. And that's really what I think, you know, kept me through you know, what the highs of, you know, getting offer in seventh grade, but being able to remain humble with through all of high school and college, but you go from being a quarterback to a wide receiver. How tough was that decision to make because it, you know, here's here you are getting a scholarship at thirteen to play quarterback at USC. And all of a sudden you're trying to figure out another position to play. Yeah. It was it was really tough at the time. You know when I got switched my my freshman year. I didn't really wanna I said I'd go play receiver, you know, and help the team..

So you guys were talking about NFL drafts where someone had kind of risen up at the very end and excuse me. I just climbing up the stairs to class. There wasn't actually expecting to get on this early. And the two thousand six draft Matt liner and Reggie Bush were highly of his being number one of the number two picks. However, Mario Williams came out of nowhere and the Texans picked number one overall and that was fifteen years ago. So that's a good call. Yeah. Yeah. And then this is also very random, but your beautiful new man cave has football place. Yeah. Me, and my roommate actually think we've uncovered for them. Okay. If I guess mccloughan knows the answer. But we're not telling anybody we have iconic plays. You know, what I would do Caleb Email the show, and then we'll hit you back because I don't want to spoil it for anybody else.

And rightfully so to do that free hand with spray cans spray-paint, and I would come in and just watch him. And I had a camera that was on him each time, by the way a lot of fumes. I'd come out of here buzzed my wife, say oh, did you stop for a beer? No. Nope. Just I was in there inhaling paint fumes and had a buzz going on. But I wouldn't watch we had a camera on him each part of the man cave that he was painting, and what we wanted was the time lapse, and I would just. Watch it. I was able to bring it up on my phone. I was just watching paint and how he did it, and it was all spray cans, spray paint and really remarkable. But we were trying to come up with plays. I just thought it was unique. I thought that that was a different piece of art of what a football play looks like and you try to figure that out. And that's what I love 'cause people we didn't want to put the name, mclovin goes. Well, these places have names to go. No don't put him down. I want somebody. If you're a true NFL fan. I've had somebody from the NFL hall of fame trying to figure it out as well.

"Burns would surprise me a little bit. Josh Allen would not surprise me. And the only reason I bring this up is because there's this veil of secrecy that is draped over the raiders and what they're going to do. And they're going to surprise people at four. I don't know. The only way you're surprise me of is if Cuyler Murray falls in you, take him. But then that's not a surprise for you. I guess to take him unless you say well when they got Derek Carr if you go up and get kind of emerging. But I don't know what the raiders are gonna do that they're going to surprises the opponent, the New York Giants that six pick. But then they had the seventeenth pick. And if they wanna wait for Daniel Jones, they have to hold a breath because the Redskins had the fifteenth pick the dolphins have the thirteenth pick. And you even throw in the Bengals with the eleventh pick there. I know they don't need a quarterback with. It wouldn't be a shocker if they moved on. Yeah. They're just so much speculation rumor, and that's where you go. Now, like, the stuff is so crazy. And that's what happened. It's usually, you know attached to quarterbacks here. Yes. Mclovin. So in that ESPN NFL reporters mock draft last night they had locked Jones or sitting there at seventeen and the reporter said the giants like lock more than Jones. I have no idea, and they apparently they like like by way of as far as picking paulie Kapit, Quinton Williams. And that's obviously the smarter picking this situation, but he's not putting any money on it. Like, should we all be taking picks and make some brilliant? If we get them or should we go safe here because it's one thing to say when Williams, but as you're gonna put it put his money whereas mouth, Illinois, if he has to do it where there's a public shaming here. See I'm not that confident. I I think I'm thinking what more so the they should do the cardinals. Not what they will do. I think they should take not take a five ten quarterback. Yeah..
