Fresh update on "softball" discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"And see these videos. Yeah so To give you a general idea of how this came along you live far. Usa my father. Who's not nor Has multiple businesses his main one being a woodworking business. He came across the product I believe it was on youtube or facebook Because he was looking for some innovative way to protect his shop Obviously a lot of fire wrists going on With all the sawdust and things of that nature In the production room so came across the product realize that it wasn't available to purchase in the states so The product is manufactured in thailand was invented in thailand And then you know my father. Pretty much jumped on a plane When over thailand that the inventor Signs some documents to become the distributor for the united states And then found out while he was there that the product also had no distribution in canada or mexico about the rights to distribute the product in all of north america And that was March of two thousand thousand nineteen. So here we are now It's been an interesting ride Just by all means no four. The radio audience. Who has yet to have a chance to see the video at into tomorrow dot com. How do you describe it to me. It looks like maybe the size of a softball right. It's a it's round device that in you can toss into a fire and it explodes and thereby suppresses the fire. How does it do that. Yes so we offer three main models There's a six inch model and that's just a circumference of the product and for the video audience. I'll just show it in the screen if that's all right. Oh wow cool. It looks much much bigger than softball as you're showing it to is holding it now. Yeah yes so. This is the largest one that we offer to six inches around weighs about three pounds and Can put out a fire. That's about twenty square feet. Now you mentioned throwing the product into an active fire. That's one way that the public can be used but the other way that it's actually more interesting in my opinion is mounting it in a risky areas where fires are more likely to occur so each one comes with a mounting bracket a pair of screws. And then you could mount it What we recommend is you know. No greater than two feet above you know anywhere. We're fires more likely to occur. That can be a washer dryer unit You know In a kitchen in a garage boiler room all those areas where they can go. I'm thinking perhaps like or in a radio control room or studio. There's a lot of equipment that is on all the time intends to heat up and and i'm glad you mentioned that your dad. I realized this when his own shop with a lot of sawdust. I mean certainly vulnerable scenario there where something could happen. If a spark ignites and you have nothing but saw does my gosh there's kindling. Suddenly you have a major fire this. Obviously we solve that problem. And i'm glad to know that it is something that can be used not only at ones business but certainly at home glad that you said things like washer dryers or water heaters or you know it gets the rest of us thinking about how we can prevent a fire or suppress it. Should it occur. Obviously it won't prevent a fire but it puts it out. Yeah absolutely it will prevent. Will it'll put out the fire and again kind of going into the actual way product works. it activates when a flame touches it so You know there has to be an active fire for the product to actually activate and then disperse the dry chemical inside and extinguish the fire And that's the real beauty of the product that you know whether your home or not it's going to activate when a flame touch it so there's no false activation You know it's only going to do. Its job when there's active fire and while many businesses have By law in most areas on the zooming fire sprinkler systems. That's terrific. I don't know of any homes that have that. So you know this is something that you can do as a homeowner as a consumer to have available maybe even in a rental apartment or something of that sort you know you can certainly have one of these balls and allied fire ball just in a spot where you might feel a bit vulnerable and get a little more peace of mind. Do you find that a lot of the case with your customers is that they just want to know that should something happen. We're covered absolutely What we're seeing really over. The last three years is a split between both businesses and consumers that are finding that safety that that above and beyond protection if you will To to have this product in various different places And really the feedback. We've gotten is great and again it's You know It is able to give you that peace of mind It's able to you know let you sleep better at night and again you talking about vacation rentals. If you're not there at the place you know this is going to do. Its job out there so We're excited on how things are going. Because obviously you just out the thing on a wall nearby i mean my gosh. We haven't even mentioned kitchens. Which i'm i'm assuming is probably the most common area for a home fire in most cases so if you have something like this whether your home or not the the ideas that it it explodes and suppresses it. One of the videos. I happened to see. And that we're showing now is you've got a guy holding one of the balls and it explodes and it doesn't hurt him at all. He shows his hand and yet the fire was put out next to him. Yeah so You know when you see the videos. The fires are pretty large so You know it's important to let people know that The product is nontoxic It won't harm you if it goes off with a close activation like you see in some of those videos The shell surrounding the actual product is polly siring. So it's just your normal styrofoam and and really Would it has its four fuses surrounding it and small igniter at the top so We don't like to say explosion activate activation is kind of what we go with but Again i think You know what we're seeing is more and more people from all parts of industries in walks of life sort of learn about the product and understand that At the end of the day our main goal is to save lives and we believe that our product can do that and and we're demonstrating that. I believe we're chatting on into tomorrow with the ceo of allied fire usa faustino barnabo. And we'll be back with much more. You don't wanna miss the rest of this interview and.
Fresh update on "softball" discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Two or three run games with a playoff berth. On the line anyone leading after whole inning. Winds of these teams would be on the bubble. Anyway so there would be some cosmic justice to the exercise. This would lead to great television innovative strategies in place a spike into the head of the zombie runner. I'm sure the players would hate this more than extra innings but it would be fun and timothy patriots supporter says. I disliked both the all star game and zombie runner rule. So i've been imagining a way to solve them both. I let all tie games go into the tenth with no zombie runners but if they're still tied after that suspend them then instead of the all star assemble all the affected teams in one place and finish all the games in one epic day. Starting at say seven. Am turnaround between games. Wouldn't have to be long because any one of them would do little damage to the field and most players would have time to warm up during the other games schedule could theoretically let most teams play their games in relatively quick succession with the better teams getting more favourable arrangements. Perhaps we'd have to do it again at the end of the season but we could skip the ties that wouldn't affect the standing so same ideas kurt there and the ones that did might have huge implications for the playoffs that would be high stakes baseball and not stupid. A win win. How crazy a dream is this. Ps i might be somewhat influenced in this idea by the annual. Marvin rotblatt day at carleton college. Where students play an inning of softball. For each year the college has existed one hundred fifty five in counting all myself so yeah same sort of concept here basically after ten innings or eleven innings or whatever you suspend tied games and then you only make them up if you need to and you do it at the end of the season or maybe you do it during the all star break and at the end of the season then you just all banged him out in quick succession and everyone goes to the same place in you. Just pick up where you left off and played inning or two until it's for but it's all just compressed into a single day instead of having to do the zombie runner. Here's a question for you. I wonder if we can find this quickly. How many extra innings games. That's hard to say. Do teams play on average every year. Like how many is it for for a team like what team has played the most. The most right good question is temp to look that up while you're attempting to look that up. Let me let me say why. I wonder about that because and i i suspect the answer to this is going to be. It doesn't end up mattering all that much. Because i would imagine that. Most teams don't play that many extra innings games regardless of format rate. And so whether it's you know they have a double-header a seven inning doubleheader game two extras or a regulation game going to extra and so i suspect it doesn't matter but here's why i asked the question. I'm not indifferent to the idea. Or the fact that like teams records going to say a thing. That is so obvious. I think it's it's important to consider what this question that like teams make decisions particularly around the trade deadline based on where they are in standings. And so i could envision a scenario where a team that is not a very good team or a very bad team but like a competitive team that might be say in a wild card race would make decisions around the deadline. That are predicated on them. Being in a particular spot in the standings of wanting to get better so that they might go to the postseason and so not having their games that are extra innings games. Decided i mean the all-star thing would would work in this scenario but if you're waiting until the end of the year to be like does this matter for the playoffs. It's like well. Maybe missed the window when it mattered to the playoffs. Because maybe if you have You know if you have five extra innings games early in the going and you win all of them. Then you're like oh we're gonna we're gonna add that bat and then we're gonna go go get him you know like a. Let's go tiger. And i imagine that that doesn't really happen. But maybe does you know like the giants and the dodgers famously. Not very far apart right. I mean they were going to be busy at the deadline anyway because they were in a tight division race. But do you see what i mean like. I think that having information about where you stand is useful when you're playing like a competitive thing where we rank people that is a good point yes and players would hate this. Oh yes indeed they would. And i think it would be kind of fun to watch. I mean obviously. I'm in favor of getting rid of the zombie. Renner rule however that is necessary. And i'm okay with ties. I again like i continue to say. It's okay to just finish the games the way that we always did but if we are some how looking for a solution to that non problem as far as i was concerned than i would rather just suspend them and having tied in that be fine but this would be interesting at least for that game it would cause all sorts of scheduling havoc the eve of the playoffs here and everyone would have to cluster in the same place presumably and oh it would be an absolute mess and then you would have some teams who seasons was essentially over. But they'd have to show up anyway just because the team they were playing had some playoff implications there so yeah players would probably revolt in this scenario but it would be kind of fun. I guess just a a succession of extra innings. Just when team plays the other team plays in. We're just sitting there watching so it'd be fun. Could never happen. We'll never happen. Players will hate it and they'll be would hate it. But i wouldn't hate it. How would we see once them. Because you'd have some teams that had multiple contests to finish up right like you'd have a couple where it's like. Kay we gotta. I mean that would make that would make it fun. Like watching the strategy that they Deploy for those moments. I think would be would be really fun because then wouldn't you just get a..

Rebekah Lyons Discusses the Title of Her New Devotional 'a Surrendered Yes: 52 Devotions to Let Go and Live Free'
"I'm going to ask you you know the softball question that i ask A writer of a book the title. Okay by the way great title. It's called a surrendered. yes Fifty two devotion to let go and live free as surrendered. Yes the softball question is what does that mean yes. Well none of us want to surrender. Usually never choose that But what i've learned is. That's always a nudge a whisper. It's a. It's something that prompts us. That usually takes us to a place. That's going to shift our life possibly or shift our everyday. Maybe it's a posture. Maybe it's a decision of growing families shifting careers moving across country. But then i also think it's very much in everyday practice of gratitude of forgiveness of surrender really just accepting. What is so that you can actually get that out and then to kind of interrupt that and show you what a healing journey looks like. So what prompted you to write a devotional. I've actually thought of doing that. At some point because i have a lot of those kinds of thoughts and i think that's valuable thought and if it's a valuable thought you know it probably didn't originate with you because truth is truth wisdom's wisdom. It's it's from the lord but like when did you get the idea that because he obviously britain other books but when you get the idea that you wanted to do a devotional devotional well. I've found that the themes i kept writing about. We're always surrender. Just this acceptance of the way things are instead of fighting against. I found that my anxiety was really rooted in pushing against her fighting against the obstacles or the barriers. In my life that i would come up again. And so that would actually increase anxiety by fighting against it versus accepting it and then finding the peace lead my heart and so i just thought if this is a a season of life like my anxiety journey started eleven years ago panic attacks and then it's now been a healing journey for a season. It's like part of that. Came a dovetailed with this. This acceptance this release saying god okay. i don't wanna live life the way life never looks the way we plant anyways so we can either get mad about that and be frustrated and fight it or we can go okay that that serenity prayer grammy the the wisdom to accept what i cannot change but then to know the difference of the things i

Interview With Tennis Legend, Billie Jean King
"So just as we often say how much has changed for queer people in the last fifty years your bookers reminder that that statement is also true for women and your case being a woman and a professional tennis player wasn't even a career path that existed. So when you were starting out how are you thinking about what was possible for a career in tennis. I played team sports as child. I in a lot of people may or may not know my younger brother. Randy moffett moderates are birth. Name became a major league baseball player. So sports is in our blood. I dad was a good athlete. My mother was good athlete. So susan williams in fifth grade asked me. If i wanted to play tennis and i said what's tennis i thought i would probably wouldn't play because she played the country. Calm and my dad's a firefighter. Aside well this is an my realm of thinking. I've also played on the softball team and she told the coach. She'd taking me out to play tennis and she said oh they give free instruction here on tuesdays applied walker. And it's free coaching. While i go out to have my first session with clyde and at the end of it i knew i wanted to be the number one tessler in the world but then was amateur and i didn't like that because i grew up around pro sports pro met. You're really good at what you did and amateur. Music was a hobby so one of the first things. I wanted to change sport. As far as being a professional sport it were none really no options as a child for girls and today there's still many more options for boys. What really happened though. What really changed my life. My epiphany was when i was twelve. I was just daydream. One day and realize that everybody who played tennis for white shoes and white clothes play with white balls and everybody who played was white. And i asked myself whereas everybody else. Where is everyone else. So that was my moment that i dedicate the rest of my life to fighting for equality for everyone everything i've done. We'll go back to that moment. That epiphany twelve years old.
Who Decides Which Sports Are in the Olympics?
"So the delayed twenty twenty tokyo olympics happened the other week complete with thirty three sports and three hundred thirty nine events including four new sports and to discontinued sports. Brought back from the dead. That's the funny thing about the olympic games. The games themselves change almost every time in terms of new events. You might have seen the karate skateboarding sport climbing or serving you might have. I didn't what i saw. The olympics was mostly clips on my favorite memes site. The resurrected sports were baseball and softball. Last seen at the two thousand eight beijing olympics the international olympic committee had decided to make a commitment to the youth by bringing sports to them in urban environments. A pretty new point of view for the i. O. c. as well as to increase engagement for youth fans who are passionate about different sports from all over the world or dispassionate about sports as a whole these sports are also not coincidentally quite popular in japan so who decides what stays in. What goes that would be the aforementioned international olympic committee they oversee all aspects of the olympic. Games they run in it in the common parlance of the associations. Ninety nine members many are former athletes or current leaders in athletics from all over the world bonus fact one of the founders of buffalo wild wings was a lifelong figure skater who served on the ioc for a time. The ios's executive board proposes which sports will be included and the rest of the votes on them. A sport must cut certain muster to sway. Those voters there are five factors split into a further thirty five criteria. Such as. How long has the sport existed. How popular is the sport in the host country. How much would it cost to hold and broadcast the event and how much value the sport would be to the olympic legacy.
Breakdancing in the Olympics?
"This year at the olympics. They included some different new sports such as surfing skateboarding and sport climbing. And fact i read that four out of the six medals in women's skateboarding went to athletes under the age of thirteen. I ever take on this. I think getting into baseball baseball and softball and replacing it with break dancing. I think that's really weird. I'm sorry i just have to say it. I think this is kind of a sign that the olympics have been ruined mismanaged. I don't have anything against break. Dancing or break dancers. Frankly i've never really seen it before. But i get this sense that with the olympics are trying to do is. They're trying to seem cool and edgy. They're getting rid of these traditional sports. I mean what is a more american sport than baseball. Of course the olympics is international. But still baseball is very traditional sport. And they're replacing it with these obscure sports because it just seems like. They're trying to be edgy. And defy norms push past barriers. I just maybe. I'm off on this. I want to hear what you think but i. I'm not sure the olympics is quite the right venue for that.
Why Skateboarding Is an Olympic Sport, but Cricket Isn't
"Skateboarding is one of six new ish. Sports added to the olympic lineup this year. Which has a lot of people wondering what does it take to be added and is some get taken away and sometimes return emily vanderbilt dug into these queries over at vox. She knows that these six new sports mark the biggest edition since nineteen twenty but also that so many events have been removed. The overall number of events has gone down from three hundred thirty nine to three hundred twenty nine. The six new sports consist of four actually new ones skateboarding surfing karate and sportclimbing as well as baseball and softball which were last featured as olympic sports. In two thousand eight and baseball and softball won't be returning in twenty twenty four in paris nor will karate although skateboarding surfing and sport climbing will all be there. And we'll be joined by break-dancing baseball and softball will be back at the twenty twenty eight games in los angeles however what's with all. The shuffling around prevent were a lot of it has to do with the international olympic. Committee's agenda twenty twenty which was adopted in twenty fourteen and part of its aim is to quote give individual host cities more control over which events are metal sports and quote so it makes sense that baseball fanatics japan would bring it back as would the us. And i can see how france wouldn't care as much break-dancing meanwhile makes sense for a continent super into street dancing and as vanderhoek notes while there's a lot of actual criteria for inclusion as a sport and you do need to have global appeal. It often helps if you a appeal. Particularly to the host nation in be are popular with the youths. According to her in. Vox the ioc has increasingly used the youth olympics. A perpetually beleaguered event for athletes between fourteen and eighteen years old as a way to try out events that might merit olympic inclusion break-dancing for instance will make its olympics debut in twenty twenty four after a successful trial run at the two thousand eighteen youth olympics in buenos aires.
Bobbie Rosenfeld: The Olympian Who Could Do Everything
"Are not an ideal outfit for running now. They might sound unfamiliar to our ears today. But these puffed up pantaloons once grace the bottom halves and cavs of plenty of young women in the early nineteen. Hundreds there called pup tent bloomers because as pants. They're so big that they kinda look like those pup tents that soldiers would cover themselves in while sleeping underneath the stars even if you don't think they look like pup tents and i'll be the first to admit that they don't exactly in the nineteen ninety s. We would call these things hammer pants but they probably used about as much fabric as a pup tent did they were big bill louis and could balloon with air so not good athletic. Wear for someone trying to run fast. They'd catch the wind like a sail. Nevertheless there stood young. Bobbie rosenfeld at the starting line of a foot race that she hadn't even planned on running.

Understanding Freedom in Business With Author John Warrillow
"I remember going out of town or scoring in my kids school or going to do something with my white. Doing something had really nothing to do with the business. Could my business exist for that day for that week. If i wasn't there or was i coming back to just complete chaos and of course earlier on you have to be more involved but that's always been a test like i'll go out of town and i'm never going to totally turned off maybe at times but you can like let things happen. You can let things. Just take place that i think is a big part if you correct me if i'm wrong in regards to your thoughts and your theories on bill to sell absolutely absolutely funny story. I was being interviewed on. A podcast. Goes back years ago and usually podcasts are pretty softball kind of question. They're usually pretty fun right. Relatively warm audience if you will and the guy starts off no one who relies like okay. Yeah warrilow you're the douchebag who built the cell and like wow. That's an opener like yeah like anyone on distance. Chastise me for promoting this kind of building to flip silicon valley start sal and brought off into the sunset kind of attitude and i was so befuddled and like totally put off by his opener that i did a crappy job of sort of rebutting him at the time but since then i've thought about it a lot i mean i think i think you're absolutely right building to sell us not about how you sell. Your company built to sell his really about. How do you credit business. That doesn't need you. Which is the essentially. The bra material prerequisite four having a sellable company. But it doesn't mean you need to sell. Oftentimes i'll do a talk. A good like an e o meeting and i'll be like okay. So how do you guys want to sell your company. And if there's one hundred people in the room at one hand might go up right. Whereas if i asked the question okay how many of you would like to know that you could sell. If you're ready like virtually every hand goes up to that question and so that's really what it's bad. It's about like in your example taking playing hooky in spending a day with your wife like that's a precious resource. That's an incredible luxury of owning a business. To kind of be able to drift off for a day or two no one notices. The business doesn't break down. And i think that is what i think. We all crave is that sense of freedom and independence. And i think that's really what built cells all about.
The Importance of Soft Field Landings
"I am such a stickler about real software lands. Because i don't want your first and hopefully only emergency to also be your first softball landing and if you were to have an engine failure inflight there's a very high probability and this depends on where you're at geographically as well but there is a very high probability that your first software lennon could be your first off airport landing because of an emergency the odds are already stacking up against you right. You already are about to make the most important landing of your life. Let's now add. The i saw fuel landed in my life as well. Those of you who've done saw field lands back me up on this you know. It is bumpy. You slow down much more quickly than you anticipate. It's just a rough jarring type of landing. The ground is so uneven. I landed at some amazing grass strips that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I've landed at some rough grass strips where it's like landed on an african safari. It feels like sometimes. I need you to practice a real soft field landing when we do. When we simulate a software landing. I kind of feel like we do ourselves a little bit of a disservice in a way. We land on pavement. And we simulate oh protect that nose wheel and all these things and back on the yoke and minimize breaking aerodynamic braking sometimes flaps up and all these different little things that we do but doing it on pavement and doing it in the real world are two totally different things in the real world. You have no choice but to keep that nose up in fact you wish you could get that nose up even more.

Emily set us up. So i wanna do a segment about ordinary things in our lives that have vastly improved since childhood. We last week were being about the things we miss now. I want to celebrate the things that like truly have improved and just gotten much more varied an interesting. And i am going to start with ice cream. I know there was good ice cream when we were little loving the peppermint. Stick ice cream at howard. Johnson's on i'm sure people made amazing homemade ice cream however now you can get like amazing ice cream at your supermarket at like at the gas station. A couple of blocks from me they carry ben and jerry's and ben and jerry's isn't even my favorite ice cream by any means anymore. I just think we're in like ice cream. Mecca right now and it's true about a bunch of other things too like lettuce for example which used to be like iceberg like a on frozen ice for most of the year now is so much better and what are the other things like that. Are you thinking of things that you as a kid particularly like things that are good for kids or just. Don't think lettuce was my favorite thing as head. Things that have improved since nineteen seventies. Yeah like really improved in a way that measurably creates more joy and pleasure on people's less modem speeds there what we're know modems when we were little though. Do you remember that there was no internet. It's not true. I mean how little do you have to be. I'm talking seventh grade okay. Fast food as much better. I don't really eat fast food.

"This ends up leading us to colleges can't afford these sports anymore. Sports sports football and basketball separate from college. The way minor league baseball separates you know like there's no particular reason why these sports take place in a college setting and they've been this huge cash cow so maybe and as you said they're really good for building you know alumni support in the sense of morale and like a rooting for the school within the community. Do you can imagine that being like if we got to that point that would be maybe a bad social costs but it just seems like there are a lot of steps along the way my to step solution to the college athletics problem. Is you make the sports that are self sufficient and which are the real drivers of of of alumni loyalty which are basically football and basketball. Maybe hockey may hockey in some places you make them professional you pay those athletes. It functioned as a minor league. They remain within the college universe. Did they do they get to go to school. They go to school. They can still get degrees. But pardon now i can get paid. They get paid and everything else becomes a club sport because it is the way that sport's distorts college admissions. The way sports distorts college is so wrong. The athletic preferences that exist are so overwhelming and so much greater than the preferences for other forms of team building activity of being a good good person on a construction crew or being a good person in a in a school orchestra. It's so much more valuable to have been a person who's on a sports team even for sports teams don't fundamentally like aren't any good. Don't matter the badminton team. It's nice people should be able to play but stugotz their admission slow still gets admission slots and it tends to be particularly with the more minor sports. It's affirmative action for white people for the most part wealthy white people often and and it's just an it takes these spots and at more elite colleges which have now massively over invested in sports. And it's it's just a waste. It means that fewer kids who were pretty good chemists or pretty good computer scientists or pretty. Good philosophers are getting in two schools because they're good fencers getting in. Yeah and find it. We are not to pick on the fencers but you're giving admissions priority to a group of people are going to spend a significant amount of their time. Doing something fairly insular right with a small group traveling around that has nothing to do with academics and nobody goes to watch them. It's not like a clear benefit to anyone outside that small group. I just find that very strange. You guys are so harsh about fencing. It's an incredibly. I know fencing gets picked on. It's not fair. let's talk about squash. what about badminton. I don't think there's badminton at the at the collegiate level. I think there's club maybe there's club badminton but maybe there should be. Let us go to cocktail chatter when you're watching badminton tournament. I've watched a squash tournament gone to squash tournament. I've been to fencing match never been to a badminton tournament but when you're watching a. madman tournament and you're sipping on whatever cocktail. You had a badminton tournament. What are you gonna talk to your fellow fans about john dickerson. Well a we touched on it earlier. And i was. I was gonna use it in our conversation about tucker carlson. But i decided not because it would rob me of a chatter. There is a new political science paper published in the proceedings of the national academy of sciences of the united states of america and the the paper which was written by steve. I think his last name. Rich rachi raetchi. Jj van bobble and sander van der linden And it's out group animosity drives engagement on social media and basically it's a study which is quite exhaustive that shows that essentially ragging on the other side creates much more viral and engaging social media content than you our team or positive things so. This is obvious to anybody who's been on social media but this is a study that proves that your instincts are right. Lots and lots of things get passed around to people who like hearing bad news about the people they despise. And that's essentially what fuels a lot of social media engagement emily. What is your chatter yesterday. My state of connecticut. Often i am down on my state of connecticut for many reasons however we were it. It'd be more popular better chatter if you were like fuck rhode island and massachusetts you get so much more engagement true but i wanna give credit where it's due. The state of connecticut has become the first state in our great union. Do we still call it that to make calls and other communications from prison. Free four incarcerated people and their families. This is a bill from state representative. Josh elliott and state senator martin looney who happens to be my state senator and it's so important people get so gouged when they are stuck in jail and prison have to make phone calls and send emails through these private services. That cost of money as someone who talks to people in prison and spends the new york times money to do this. I see this but who cares about that. What really matters is that often. These are low income people. Their families are bearing the cost. It just sucks the whole thing and the idea that you know. Connecticut is recognizing that and that these calls and an emails and communications are going to be free. It's such an important light line. People are incarcerated it is so beneficial to their alive after they get out and almost everyone gets out and their families if they can maintain these family ties through this communication. And so i'm just really glad to see this and i hope other states follow. That's great again. I got to tatters today. The first one. I want to strongly recommend a hilarious and kinda sad article in wired this week which is headlined dumb money. The very short rise among fall of common currency former justice briars would be bitcoin. Competitor is a wild story about how the former justice fell in with a bulgarian blockchain.

"This big banner that said bong hits for jesus and they got disciplined. And i mean when you really think about that i mean okay maybe material disruption but can anyone take a joke and off school grounds however the majority of the court mostly the conservatives on the court did not think this was okay and so the way justice. Breyer has now categorized. This decision is like oh. You're on a school trip and you do something that you know makes the school and the students look bad and it's about drugs and so like that's not okay. I would argue that. This decision which. I think is called morse. Versus frederick should have a whole lot of precedential value going forward. Let's talk just briefly about this. Nca case emily. This was a unanimous opinion and found that the ncaa banning universities from offering kinds of educational benefits beyond scholarship. So things like extra tutoring and laptop laptops and that ban was was not. And i think what is interesting about. This does not open the door for ncaa athletes to be paid directly but it it does not allow that but it does open the door to this argument being made more directly. Especially when you look at the concurrent opinion that cavanaugh wrote which has lot nowhere else. In america can businesses get away with agree not to pay their workers a fair market rate and the theory that their product is defined by not paying their workers fair market rate. Yeah i loved that. That was great. Kevin is a good writer He really cares about college sports from what i've heard. So is this a big case services. Small case it's a big case because it indicates that the nc double a. is basically been operating with some giant exception to antitrust law. Which is that. It sets these rules for how students are. Athletes are treated how sports are conducted. And it's basically price-fixing and it's been the heart of its just ificationbut is now pretty much like dead and not justification was like the reason that college sports exists and has an audience is because it's amateur and so we can't pan eu on or provide these benefits because we have to preserve its amateur nature and the problem with that argument. Of course. Is that as justice. Gorsuch points out in his majority opinion. I mean this is just a billion dollar industry. In which the coaches the administrators are making million dollar salaries and the students are effectively getting nothing and some of them get drafted into professional sports. But some of them don't most of them don't and some of them get injured along the way and we also know that often the quality of their college education really suffers because they're spending all their time doing their sport so i think it's really important that that kind of really false justification of the nc double a. has been broken and you know the question is what are the ramifications going to be in the short term students are going to be able to get more of these education related benefits clearly down the line. Are they going to be able to bargain for much more. What happens to all sports that don't that are not lucrative and don't make any money right because of title nine we have these rules about equal representation along gender lines. We have lots and lots of like teams like you know. I don't know gymnastics sailing tennis. Whatever the don't make any money. They cost a lot of money and then to some degree the football and basketball and hockey programs that generate revenue support those other sports in like. I don't know enough about the money part but through a huge degree to a huge degree. Okay so now you should start talking. Because i don't really know that much about how this works except i'm really interested to see if the whole structure changes. Well i can give you only my limited exposure. I got when i did the piece on returning to college During the age of the pandemic which would have been august of twenty twenty and a lot of what was at issue about returning was being able to return the sporting teams to the field particularly the football team and they were gonna put thousands of people in the stadiums and not have any kids in the classrooms right wherever it because it brings in so much money. Not just the playing of the game but in terms of raw alumni. We all love our team school. And we're now going to write a check. So what i wonder is. If in the argument you talked about the salary of the coaches whether it could also be claimed that the schools benefit because of the distribution of the money to the other departments. Whether that's another way in which the school benefits economically in the athletes. Don't what i wonder emily. You expect or could imagine. Let's say someone claiming on the badminton because you can imagine a race to the top or bottom depending on your point of view in terms of giving athletes. You know it's going to be the not only the best possible laptop that they're going to get but they might also get some other things that would be really stretching the definition it would basically be like income but they'll find a way to to argue around. It would a badminton team. Persons have a legal claim to say. Hey i'm is good in my sport. Sure we don't make much money. But i should get the same kind of inducements or would that not be the kind of claim that would come to challenge this. I mean i don't really think so because if you if you imagine that there's no Effective cartel and no price-fixing. Then you're just at market rate value right and the badminton. Players market rate value is significantly lower than the star football players market value. I mean i guess..

"It is a good week to have been a student at the supreme court at least student who is on a team or trying to get on a team so emily can you quickly brief us on the two big decisions this week involving students. Yeah so the supreme court finally took a case about students rights to free speech when they are off campus and in particular when they're writing something on social media and a student known by her initials. B l one case in which. She had challenged getting suspended from her cheerleading team for a year because she wrote yes brandy levy brand. And what. what's the actual quote again. The fox school softball. Cheer fuck everything okay. Snapchat with her middle finger raised. Yes so she won and it was an aide to indecision justice even briar a big accomplishment at the end of this term. Just noting that for justice briar. The dissenter was clarence. Thomas also known as his penultimate term. And what's important about this case. Was that the court lay down. I think what should be obvious. Principles for schools principals like legal principles not principal leaders. Which is that students have to greater free speech rights when they're off campus then on and there's this funny phrase that briar used that the schools are nurseries of democracy and so they should be helping to instill in their students the value of free speech. Even if you disagree with it you're supposed to defend it. Felt the word. Nurseries was a little much like training grounds but have been nicer high school students or not in nursery school. But i think that general principle is important. This case doesn't go very far. This was a really a lot of ways. Like a set of easy facts right. It didn't involve an attack on a teacher school administrator it wasn't bullying sounding off in a way that was critical of her team. And yes she used the word fuck and other than that. There was really nothing wrong with it and so it didn't rise to the level of a standard. The court has used before which is that. In order to be disciplined a student speech has to substantially disrupt the workings of a school or like impede on someone else's rights. There was just nothing like that here and so there are a lot of unanswered questions going forward. And let's talk about this case and then the nc double a. Case later. Emily i. I found myself strangely. Ambivalent about this case agreed that. Of course this is this didn't rise to the level of disruption certainly would have voted with the majority but in a social media age off the off campus on campus. Distinction is really weird and not. It's not tenable that this was what she said was to a snapchat group that included huge numbers of her classmates and it involves something having to do with school. It didn't this was not a case. That involved her saying something. Racist or sexist or homophobic. But you can imagine that like people do that and there those if you do that and it's not directed at another student or and it's not directly about a school activity could that be conceived as being disruptive to the school the just the boundaries of school are so porous and the boundaries of speech are so porous in an age of of social media that it's it's really hard to yes. This is a pretty easy case. But i feel like there must be a billion other cases which are much harder where the obligation of the school to maintain kind of order and to not allow bullying and harassment to take place would be pretty significant and where they're going to have to be able to punish students well so let's imagine emily. You can tell me how you would phrase this question if you were teaching in. Let's go. Let's imagine she had put a a teacher's name in that list or be a student's name. Yeah that would be a different case. And i think the court made that clear because they talked about attacks on school officials verbal attacks amien and serious bullying and harassment as separate categories. They weren't addressing. they also said that. A student's speech off campus that was political or religious in nature that there would be a high bar for schools to be able to discipline. And so i think some of the categories are talking about david could fall into that realm bright and yes for sure there have been much harder cases. I mean. I remember a case. I think it was the ninth circuit. So maybe california of a kid who was wearing a t-shirt that was critical of gay people in school and bat is like a much harder situation because you can see how other students and other people at the school would feel about it. But that's also that kids political speech rights. And i i think the material disruption standard is a pretty good one for in school. I disagree with you about social media. I mean yes. It's very porous and yes. It can have an impact in school but if you think that everything that kids right on social media is is hot or for school discipline first of all you put a tremendous burden on the schools to actually have to monitor and police all that speech. I mean that is just a mess for them and second of all like then. Kids have no sphere of privacy effectively. I mean no spirit of free speech that isn't affected by the rules of school of note hundred percent but it's it's different than when we were kids when what you could say would be limited to. The group could say it to publicly. Not you couldn't say. In this massive forum that encompasses the entire world and in these groups that encompass significant portions of the school in which which are not official school groups function as quote paris school groups. And yeah i hear you. I if she said in the snapchat group like like fuck you know the black girls who made the squad think. Yeah right i mean. I guess you could argue. That's political in nature but you could also imagine that have been tremendously disruptive in the school in a way that would clearly meet the standard for substantial disruption right. I mean there was a a speech case from school a few years ago where these girls were accusing another girl having herpes and got disciplined. And like i mean come on and it was it was first of all was seemed false and defamatory but also it was incredibly cruel and it was a whole bunch of them and that kind of thing you start to feel like okay you can really see how that would infringe on the student's ability to be at school that the overflow effect of the social media into school would realize level. We're talking about. But i mean i do want to speak up for one of justice. Briars key principles. Which is that. School sometimes are clearly in the place of the parent right in loco parentis latin phrase but sometimes they're not and some of this. We have to leave to private resolution within families even if that creates discomfort. I mean we just. I just don't wanna see my kids entire discipline you know kind of like inculcating values to the school that they go to especially because school attendance is basically compulsory right. You're not choosing it exactly. Emily can you explain the difference between this. And the court's decision on bong hits for jesus mostly so that i get the chance to save bong hits for jesus yeah well. The court issued this decision several years ago in it. So the facts of this case i mean i think this was a bad free speech decision. I also think now. The court has drawn a circle around it and said it like stands for. Its own thing. What happened was that they were passing the olympic torch and the kids were like a block away from the school or at least off of school grounds and some of them as a prank unfurled..

I took this conversation a little bit serious. I got dressed up for today. Rocking the rocking the unarmed polo. Where we're ready man. I think where. I want to start though and this is a question that thousands of people are sitting on the edge of their seat to get the answer to this keeping. You've been professional athlete. You played a couple of years in the nfl. You had a little stint here with the tampa bay storm. You know obviously playing linebacker in college. You've been around incredible athletes your entire life. My first question. Eric is what is it like being teammates with frank rich.

Rich was blessing You know he brought it in the muscle brought in the four of clean up their position and Mad at first the first season we played a you remember that man what our team was great but we could have some improvements during the offseason.

"Amazing. The press just been okay. That sounds fair. you'll become transparent whenever it's an appropriate or convenient for you. Okay actually that gal saying do you know when that might be was the strongest. Most spirited pushback from our aggressive media. Remember how combative they were with trump. Jim acosta and the rest of it turned into shouting matches. That was extraordinary yesterday. My general my overall view. My thirty thousand foot view is there are a number of moments like that where i take a bit of idealogical glee in a guy. I think who's way off track in terms of what's best for america. I take i met. I take glee and him screwing up doing a poor job of defending what he's doing. I had made me happy on the other hand. There were moments that scared me. A bit as an american Actually that was kind of both because the idea that the pressure would say well okay. No transparency for now is a little scary since they are watchdog. But let's let's do a couple just newsy moments then i'll get to the really scary part in my view. Clip thirty one. Sean will play next this. Jackie nailed at the other day. When all of a sudden the conversation about guns petered out. I mean went from sixty zero and on cnn. They saying yeah. We don't think that's going to happen. That was them being tipped off by people in the democratic party that there was gonna be a toward gun control and indeed biden spoke to. What are you gonna do about guns and thirty one successful presidents better than me have been successful large part because they know how to time what they're doing order okay. I could've used a lot longer. Version that clip. But he said we want to do infrastructure so he just explained. We're not gonna talk about guns now. The timing. I actually thought that was pretty interesting and probably true. But i'd never really thought about before that of presidents that are successful and get things done they time things correctly and I'd never thought about that before. So he believes. And i think he's probably right if they get into the whole debate and put a whole bunch of capital behind that political capital political will and energy into that that will take weeks. Maybe months and it'll be the only thing that is being talked about and his his transforming america through these giant packages won't happen right. And i fell into the trap that i've been yelling about. I called it the infrastructure package. It's a reforming. Everything in america packaged calling everything infrastructure. And putting the federal government in charge of. And that's that's where they're really gonna jamie in a lot of the the green new deal Green energy stuff right so. There's some really interesting. It's a very disciplined approach from From the white house of trying to do what they wanna do. It's not generally anything. Anybody says out loud. No you couldn't say that out loud. It sounds too awful that you know we got other things we're gonna get done and we're going to put the gun debate on the back burner. Probably even callously saying they'll be more mass shootings in my term and we'll have the opportunity to address this again right right so if you're just tuning in the press conference. Yesterday it was ten carefully selected reporters asking softball questions and the president used crib notes. Something that few can remember any president ever doing for general press conference and that was a little disturbing Some really interesting things said about the filibuster. We're going to get to that in a little while. Because it's we're going to do a whole segment on that the stuff that people are making a big deal. They asked him if he's going to run against trump and he didn't close it out those. That's just dumb. yes you're going to catch him up there and he's going to say no. I'm not running again. This is going to announce it because somebody asked me more on account and the discussion of it's even more moronic but he. He did his best to defend the the going on at the border and manned did he say some crazy stuff a clip thirty eight. Please the idea that. I'm going to say which i would never do. Company trial ends up at the border. We're just gonna let them starve to death and stan. yeah they're solid no previous administration that either except trump. I make no apology ending programs. That did not exist. Before trump became president that have an incredibly negative impact on the law international war as well as on human dignity. Wow how's the human dignity going right now and the whole idea. That kids were starving in the mud. That did happen. One thing that. I was wondering during particularly the immigration part of it was how up to speed is he on what is actually happening there. Does he know what the conditions are. Like in those places like You know he's seen the abc news reports and that sort of stuff and he's just you know doing normal politician spin stuff or does he actually not really no. He's being told various things by his His people and he believes them. Yeah you know. Every president of the last five since. I've really been paying to this stuff. The people on the other side of the island said oh. He's just a puppet butchers. Puppet cheney's rumbling the white house or whatever we want it's a cliche and it's tired. I do wonder to what extent joe biden has his hand on the the helm the wheel of the show. It's possible he's got advisers. Say no things are going great and this and this and this and this and they're feeding him axios says that the numbers they're using the defend themselves they're misreading month-to-month statistics are using a month ago. Statistics and that's how they have much better numbers than the ones that for instance axios is putting out and that's one of their ways of getting around it. It's possible he's got advisers going in there feeding him numbers from previous month that make the percentages look much better and he doesn't know that there are four thousand kids in a facility for two hundred and fifty sleeping on the floor. That haven't had a shower in ten days that you're wrong. I think it's more likely my personal opinion. That they're giving them the straight scoop telling them look go with last month's statistics because if we admit how terrible it is we are going to be absolutely kneecapped. Could be i just. I want to speak on this issue of him using notes and everything like that. Because i've seen a lot of back and forth on that on Cable news shows in in the media you know because trump got caught with a whole ms note card with various things on it and other presents have but I thought brett hume made a very good point on on some of the particulars now first of all One of your blue checkmark medicare people tweeted out. That was a crisp informative. Press conference in brit hume tweeted out that person. Nothing says crisp press conference like reading foreign policy answers out of a briefing book. He's making a distinction about the foreign policy stuff specifically Karen tumelty of usa today or washington. Post said actually. Having a briefing book is an improvement over recent history reading it as a double improvement to which britt hume replied and i thought this was really good. Oh for pete's sake. Karen biden's been in washington. Nearly fifty years and was twice chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. Trump's ignorance does not. Excuse biden's i do think there's a bit of a using trump is the standard and biden is doing this compared to trump as opposed to comparing biden to obama or bush or any of the other presidents and or biden himself. If you don't remember. Joe biden. I've been following that stuff because i'm so into foreign policy. He was the chair the foreign relations committee multiple times for many years and he was sharp as attack knew everything that was going on in the world because he was on. Meet the press. I think more than any person that's ever been on. Meet the press back in the The tim russert days and he was. He can answer any question with with intricate numbers and history all the time. Yeah so that's who. Joe biden is him standing there with his own policies. Now and reading word for word what. Our plan is in afghanistan. Come on now. yeah that's disturbing. Which brings us to the next phase of this segment disturbing parts. He's going on to talk about immigration a little more in clip thirty nine. Listen to how this ends. So we're building up the capacity. That should have been maintained and built upon that trump dismantled. It's gonna take time and the other thing we're doing. i might add. I give me an answer. Because if you don't want the detail. No but i mean i. I don't know how much detail you one about immigration. Maybe i'll stop there in january. We got to play the one big Working up to here's the poor guy. I felt that it made me feel uncomfortable hearing it it does. Here's the part that my you know my satisfaction that you know. I hate his policies in each doing a poor job. Defending him ended. And i started to fear for the country and i absolutely pictured in in beijing in moscow. Everybody getting all excited and having a snap meeting all right. How much do we tried to accomplish. And how quickly did you see the president of the united states. That would be clipped thirty seven. I'm going to say something outrageous. I have never been particularly poor at calculating how to get things done in the united states senate so the best way to get something done if you if you hold near and dear to you that you like to be able to get a lot done. Wow wow good. Do you have any guesses to where he was going there because it sounded like he was going to be something kind of controversial or or or big or thought provoking but then did he. Did he bail. Did he bail and decided. I better not say that. Or did he forget where he was going. Let's hear it one more time. I'm going to say something outrageous. I had never been particularly poor at calculated how to get things done in the united states senate so the best way to get something done if you if you hold near and dear to you that you like to be able to anyway. I'm ready to get a lot done. I mean obviously he was talking about getting stuff through the senate would have -rageous. He said i'm going to say something outrageous. Or was he being sarcastic. Have an aide waving him off now. Don't say that. Did he have a senior moments. I want to hear what he was going to say. So yeah well suited. He apparently but he what what they're there. And he's making reference canir institute foreign policy there in kinetic there and it was ten carefully chosen softball chuckers including this gal from npr. We don't really have time to talk about her but she was like you know you're known as a good and decent man sir. Let's talk about your wonderful kind immigration policy. It was humiliating your tax dollars at work nice job. Npr question for you guys. Do you think he makes two years as president. It's not a sure bet by any means. I wonder how many of these perfect press conferences. Ill have owner. How long before he ever has another one and that one was pretty. You know pretty orchestrated. Yeah there is no peter. Doocy allowed to speak from fox news. Well how about the fact that there was not as well. There wasn't a single question about covid which is just amazing because on all polls it's the number one issue in the country but Nobody asking about schools. No not one question about. Why are the schools not open. Oh my god the american question. Yeah the cdc guidelines on schools wire school still closed. Nope nothing the schools konare close to. If i earn in there that have been my thing on a ask that respectfully our schools close he would have said we need to give them more money and ventilation and all the crap. Then i would said there's no. There are all kinds of schools open across the country. There have been no problems and they didn't do any of those things you just talked about. There's no science keeping the schools from me close on. I'd love to hear what his response to that is. You never would've gotten a question. They wouldn't have called on you..

"When a seventy eight year old answers our questions. They're getting a physical it's It sounds like you've got a hot take on yesterday's first press conference. I'll just tell you what i think. You d gauge the temperature of it. I was frightened for the country and only ten reporters carefully chosen. Nobody ask any too tough questions. The president with his crib notes in front of him to handle the ten pre-selected reporters hurling the softest of softballs his way Anyway house mailbag bag. Look it's it's very good actually. It's it's impressive. Later in the show we all have to do push ups. There's some new guidelines out that are very important in terms of whether you're gonna drop dead or not and that's why we only do push ups later. I'd say it's gonna do it yesterday when i came across this. But i thought you know. I'm going to put off till the show because i'm not exactly sure because assessing whether you're about to drop dead or not should be priority number one in really really should be. There is a cross. Oh great content. Though there's a critical number of getting to push ups the number of push ups you can do where you crossed by one. Push up and your chance of dying goes way down. Wow which is amazing. I haven't done push-up ages. I haven't done a push up since we mocked marshall for not being able to do ten however many years ago. That was our old news. Guy who who who who's new year's resolution was to do ten pushups and he never made it past three. Yeah and the third. One was pretty shaky three and three quarters. At least i. Around don't know i was there. I saw it. But i remember. I cranked out eleven that day and can i still do that. I don't know because it's critical to whether or not you're gonna drop dead. It's siri it's actually. It's pretty damned interesting. Actually it'll have a bet every male who hears this. We'll do push ups today when they hear it so we'll get to that later this hour including.

"We would bring in kids who were less fortunate to shop with them for their Christmas can food drives packing food to send to other countries things along those lines. I did a lot while being a Razorback and then on my own I collected a roughly around 2,000 pounds of baseball softball equipment the ship to pitch in for baseball and softball. You can check out on social media then they took that equipment and distributed it to other places with kids who needed the equipment and then wage standard that whenever I was with the New York Mets. I did community service projects with them. I've done a lot. There's a shelter here in literal called our house where I spent some time talking to the kids. They're playing Wiffle Ball games with them Community or speaking engagement speaking to the youth there's a lot of things that I have done because it is in my heart to give back. I just feel like impacting others and giving back to those who you know really need it. It's just it's it's my call to do I love people and to be able to give back and just really impact people in the best ways possible. It's just special. It sounds like you obviously are highly involved with your community and you are getting recognized for being highly involved with your community. It looks like you have been acknowledged a number of times, winning looks like in the University of Arkansas the female community service award and obviously you love giving back. So what is it like being acknowledged for having such a passion for giving back in me having such a passion for being involved with the community outside of sports. So I was on the SEC. I was named to the SEC community service team two years in a row so being acknowledged by the SEC for that out of all of the universities that are within the SEC to be named to that was pretty special and addition to boost. It was the first year that they did it this past year. I was named to the University of Arkansas female student-athlete community service award. So being able to get that off. Individually it just I mean it's good to be acknowledged for the hard work that you put in but it's selfless work. And you know, honestly, I don't need an Accolade. Um, because I just love doing it being able to be recognized was super special. But again, it's just it's just a great opportunity super special to be able to impact people and God back. We hope that you continue to give back especially with the holiday season coming up actually my boyfriend and I were going back up to Massachusetts, which is where I'm from were driving up this Thursday..

"That's what really set me up for Success once I got to college girl. It sounds like you absolutely crushed it so many amazing accolades and obviously that just helped you develop into the woman that you are now, obviously you do a lot of giving back and you have your own developmental classes and Clinics and you obviously coach people individually should be discussing that later on in the show. Of course, you guys are now listening to the boss babes. I'm your host Britney baldy and joining me today is the very lovely very talented Sydney parley. We obviously off discussing the fact that she grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. She literally just tied the knot two weeks ago. We are now discussing the fact that she traveled as a young kid and into her teens place. Softball playing a variety of other sports developing that bond with her father and just absolutely crushing it at the sport and it drove you to getting into the back of Arkansas again at such a young age as a freshman in high school. What was it like playing college softball at the University of Arkansas? I know that you started off your career and 2017, you started off being more so a pinch-runner probably sitting there watching what was going on on the field off the field getting to know what the team was like and the coaching whatnot. What was it like starting off as a pinch-runner, but then also working your way up to being a starter in center field for the Hogs. So again going back to the guy that recruited me the coach that was there before he left right before I got into college and still sometimes that's hard for athletes when you recruited by coach and then that coach leaves in a new coaching staff. Steps in so my freshman year at the time I'm not going to lie. I am so insanely competitive. I mean you go to college because you want to play so that first year now looking back on it. And so extremely grateful that I had that year to be able to learn learn the pace of the game because it is different playing in the best conference in the country on the division one level. I learned so much. I grew as a person I faced a lot of adversity but by facing not adversity it made me better as a woman and as a human and a person and then that going into my sophomore through senior year where I started left field than I started center field and I played for those three years. It made it even that much more sweeter. It made me realize that I'm not going to take it take a second of getting to start and play for granted because I had that first year where I wasn't out all billed every single game and so then from my sophomore year long Until I was done getting to start getting to be a key player out on the softball field. It made me cherish that that cherish it that much more getting to play at the highest level possible in college. It is so Dynamic it teaches you so much about you as a person of it.
