Ice (MM # 3468)

"The Maisonette with Kevin Nation. There are some people who are connoisseurs of ice. I'm not talking the immigration service. I'm literally talking about wage the ice you get in a cup when you go to a fast food place. When you go to a convenience store, there are some people who will debate and discuss ice four hours some of the best ice in the world supposedly goes to the fast food joint Sonic. In fact this song Sonic put up for auction to benefit one of their Charities a cup of their ice, which is the little pellet type I switch melt slowly and supposed to be real good as of yesterday or day before I don't know what it was the bid for a cup of ice forty four ounce cup of ice was $335. Now I have Sonic just down the road from me so I can get one for probably what 89 cents a dollar two bucks. I don't know what the cost is and if I go during happy hour it's even cheaper, but funny how things just like ice cubes can become a topic of discussion. There are people literally on the internet talking about ice right now. Go ahead type discussions about ice and if you're looking for immigration, I'm sorry that will come up to and your internet search.

New Chinese Space Plane Landed At Mysterious Air Base, Evidence Suggests

"Appears to have successfully tested a new spacecraft. Last week's mission was shrouded in secrecy. But as NPR's Jeff from field reports, there are some clues about what China sent into space and why. Last Friday, a Chinese rocket took off carrying a mysterious payload. A terse statement on state media said it was quote A reusable experimental spacecraft, but they didn't give a launch time. They don't have any more details. No riel official footage of the Lord's Jonathan Mcd, Alison astronomer, Earthy Center for Astrophysics, Harvard and Smithsonian who specializes in tracking satellites and spacecraft orbiting the Earth. When he plotted the course of China's new craft, he found that it passed over a secretive military facility. An area called Loop Nure, where China once tested its nuclear weapons. There's an air base there, which has AH big runway that's aligned exactly in the direction ofthe the orbit of the space craft. On Sunday, China announced its new spacecraft heads landed. Sure enough fuzzy satellite images napped by a commercial company called Planet. Seemed to show activity on the giant runway right at the moment, the landing would have occurred. McDowell says that the evidence is circumstantial, but he believes China has just tested a space plane. Think of it. It's a little space shuttle a craft with wings probably too small to carry people that took off on a rocket and coasted back to Earth. The information of all hands together now that this wass A test of something probably a space plane that made a winged reentry on landed on the runway at Lop nor the US Air Force has a similar spacecraft called the X 37 B. It's been launched in since 2010. So if that's what China tested, why now it's a great question. We're not even really sure why the United States military is pursuing a space plane like it's been doing for the last Decade or so. Brian Weeden Studies face security issues with the Secure World Foundation. The U. S X 37 B program remains highly classified. Weeden says he believes it's being used to test new sensors and systems for the military. Think about if you're building a brand new satellite, and you've got a lot of fancy new technology that's never been in space before. That's potentially risky. But if you can apply some of that technology in space, let's say in the payload bay of a reusable space plane that could allow you to get a better feel for how about react. McDowell says that space planes which travel many times, the speed of sound, could also potentially helped with the development of so called hyper sonic weapons. Uh, honestly, he thinks China could just be copying the US if the Americans have one of those. That must be a good reason for it. So we better get one, too. The landing of the space plane or whatever it was, is just the latest success for China. McDowell says that recently completed its own satellite navigation system, it has a robotic missions going to Mars and several probes on the moon. China's firing on all thrusters in space on just really increasing its level of involvement on capabilities, and I think that this is just one more reflection of that Jeff from feel.

Coronavirus: California unemployment claims jump, now top 8 million during shutdowns

"Economy layoffs Picking up speed here in California is the pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the economy. Jobless claims spiked by about 40,000 last week for California, D D director Michael Sonic tails can exit the state is going against the national trend. Our new unemployment claims are far far higher than other states are pandemic unemployment insurance claims he's of the claims by independent contractors or way way above those of other states. So the gap between US and other states in terms of joblessness in terms of new jobless unemployment claims continues to get larger. Again. Nationally, the numbers were better than expected this morning. But he says California accounted for 28% of the national claims with one of the main factors behind the layoffs being astringent lockdowns total of more than eight million Californians have been thrown out of work since March. Frank keeping an eye on all these developments this morning with your money, and he's going to have more coming up at 8 50 so well, things look pretty rancor in California today, There's a report from Beacon economics that looks for things to get better. While this has been the deepest recession, it's also been the shortest, according to Esther for Thornburg, founding partner of Beacon Economics, the economic peak. That is to say the month before the recession began with February. The economic trough that is the lowest point of economic activity. Occured in April away from April to July. We've seen an enormous Cumbrian economic activity. Still, he acknowledges the financial pain caused by the pandemic for those who are falling behind the primary thing, If you really are worried about folks, we're falling behind. The best thing we could do for those folks right now. Washer and where he says, get the virus under control and the economy will come back fast. He also says This is not the same kind of situation as the great recession where a large part of the economy was over inflated and then the financial bubble collapsed. Margaret Carrero KO Next 10 70

A Look at Directional Sound with Holosonics

"Sonics now the world leader in providing highly directional sound products with thousands of installations worldwide. Joining back in on Joe and is conversation he starts in with a great story about minority report. As a funny story about that the minority report seen was actually. Partially written by the Technical Consultants of that movie named John Under koffler. Classmate of mine at the Media Lab and he knew all about the audience spotlight. You know he was a good buddy and pretty sure that was written in specifically about the spotlight as they're going through the mall and then yeah the different parts are saying Mr. so and so you know you could use some new glasses of clothes or what have you I think that was directly inspired by the audience spa technology those kinds of things we are already doing Now certainly, we don't want to make a creepy for people We don't want surprise them too much, but I think appropriately used. I think it can be very effective in the billboards in the whispering in the minority port stuff is fun and it's interesting. It's unusual but the day to day applications I think are way more effective and have a lot bigger impact like the allgood manichean pain that Ogilvie. Did with the audio spotlight speakers they put speakers over banana display and supermarkets, and they add a little place where if you stood in the right place, you heard messaging about where the bananas came from how they were sourced from fair producers and You know done ethically and the rest, and you only hear it if you're standing in front. Of that banner display because the whole store doesn't need to hear about neo all the people who are engaging with a product ear and they started sales those bananas one, hundred, forty percent over the campaign, which was great. It was a big success for that We've also done bookstores where the author would be reading from their book and Fun of their book display. So if you stand up and walk up to the place where the display of their books, all of a sudden here that the author doing a reading we did that seven eleven used our systems oliver off south southern part of the US for. Providing a news and advertising from their digital signs displays to the people buying coffee. What happened originally, you know as they had these digital science displays and they wanted to sell advertising on them. You can't sell advertising quite as negatively if it doesn't have sound. So they added sound and they used regular speakers from the TV's that were in the store, but it just bothered everybody everybody hated listening to it because the stuff would loop constantly and they would you know they would hear the same things again and again, especially, the clerks who had to work there and one of the people who had been in this business for awhile arranging this, they told me that when you put speakers in a store and they're playing repetitive information, the clerks will do three things. The first thing they'll do is the figure out how to turn it down. And they'll turn the volume down if they can't figure out how to turn the volume down, they'll figure out how to turn it off. and. If they can't figure out how to turn it off though break it. said. This was just rampant in the industry. So we came along with the audio spotlight speakers and replaced the regular speakers in the TV. So the only person who would hear the digital sign content was the one standing right in front of it and engaging usually it's the person buying coffee and they're mixing up coffee and they're putting the cream and things like that. So they're there for a little while and they can hear it and they're not bothered at all by it now, the advertisers. Are Not irradiating their customers they're just advertising and it's a pleasurable experience. You get some news, you get a couple of ads and you get your coffee, and then you go off and you don't have to hear it anymore. So that made the adoption much much wider and a worked well. So that was a that was a good type of application. So the general idea being able to use sound in a public place without bothering people nearby is really a good niche for the. Technology because speakers are so usually turned down people don't sound because they're afraid of the noise both the audio spotlight. They can deliver the sound of the people who need it or want it without bothering everybody

Intellectual-Property Assets Are Getting More Valuable

"As a foreign intelligence agency were responsible for understanding a broad range of threats. Presented by governments to the United States, one of those threats include our cyber threats how nations may be using cyber to achieve their national objectives that might be intellectual property theft for example, to counter department offensively valid by accelerating foreign governments ability to actually productized particular RDA for weapon that may be targetting critical infrastructure of a country. As part of threatening that country or as part of putting pressure on a given country. How are we doing against the cyber threats are we? Barely keeping up, are we catching up? Are we getting ahead of the game or? Is it always going to be hard for the defender. Overall technology is getting more secure. Technologies Belt more securely today. So. The fundamental resilience is is improving known. You have open source products. We have lots of is looking at a given technology and helping find vulnerabilities and address them. That being said for an ever-more connected economy in ever more connected society, and as we build more connections, sometimes systems that were not necessarily built for those kinds of connections we bring and introduce new risks on the third poll the positive side there's far more awareness about those risks and how to approach addressing them identifying what are the most important assets to protect. Seems to be an effort on the part of NSA to kind of open up a blackbox and Kinda shut the reputation no such agency we want to be trusted to achieve or we believe we can uniquely contribute to team USA on either the first step. Is conveying who we are conveying the culture. That's here the commitment to American values. Certainly. When a part of our mission is an intelligence mission in a democracy, you have an obligation to ensure that the Americans. We serve feel they understand the values by which we live. And neuberger is the current director of the national security. Agency's Cybersecurity Directorate. She has held a variety of jobs in both the public and private sectors. We just sat down with an to talk about her career, her and her director. It's multiple responsibilities and how she sees a cyber threats facing our country. I'm Michael Morale and this is intelligence matters. So an welcomed to intelligence matters, it is great to have you on the show. It's great to be here. So I think the place to start and is with your career before you joined the national security. Agency. You had a career in the private sector. Can you tell us about that and tell us what you did in the private sector and then what drew you into government, service. Sure. So I was in running technology at a at a financial services company during that time period when financial services companies really moved off mainframe environments to the Web. Decline server technology. So that piece of both taking an operations and emission and its associated technology and people and culture really Shaked shaped the way I approach a lot of those problems today. And I was raised in in a family where my dad came as a refugee all my grandparents came as refugees to the US and they just. Constantly instilled in US how grateful we should be for the opportunity to be born in America and raised in America, with its freedoms with its ability to pursue one's dreams and and that we owed it for that and. I was driving home from from work in. In two, thousand six, we just done a large acquisition of. Companies of banks, custodian operations. And on the radio, they were talking about the bombing of mosque. Samara Moscow in smaller rock and just the. Soldiers dying civilians dying and the troubles there and I I still don't know why but I thought of my dad and. That's myself. Perhaps now's the time to repay a little bit of of that in some way and. I've been a graduate student at Columbia had a I had a professor tell me about the White House fellows program and encouraged me to apply and I kind of I have to admit was a bit of the New Yorker Countless New York ever. kind of put that aside and for whatever reason I just felt that calling at that moment called him and said I'll apply and fast forward I was assigned to the Pentagon. With zero military background. And you learned a lot about the culture very drawn to that shared commitment and spent a year in the Pentagon worked for the navy and then came to NSA. Couple years later. What did they doing at the Pentagon and the Navy? So I was the deputy chief management officer, the Navy essentially, the Navy had a number of broad enterprise wide technology efforts which they were working again, bring that you people mission. Technology Triangle. And they asked me to help work on a couple of working directly for the secretary of the Navy figure out why a of them were struggling and then help them get on track. So I worked on that and I often get asked by people. How did YOU END UP AT NSA? A pretty funny story in that I had a seventy six year old and I was commuting from Baltimore and the. The work life balance was a bit tough and I met somebody and he asked me about. How he was doing and I commented that I really love the work but it was a little hard for me to do the juggle. And he said, you know I happen to know that NSA standing up you director NSA standing up cyber command and I know they need people with your kind of of background. So how about if I make a phone call there? And I went for an interview commute was thirty minutes and it sounds so foolish but. That was pretty much what it took. Interesting interesting. So the private sector and then the Department of Defence which is as you know this huge enterprise and then NSA and this is a this is not an easy question I know about kind of the similarities and differences of those three different experiences. It all begins with people. In every organization missions have to adapt and change They adopted change in the private sector because perhaps you have a competitor, perhaps the customer spaces adapted. Certainly financial services saw that we're the scale of data was just increasing the scale of trains was increasing and the traditional manual processes couldn't keep up. So we automation with needed to reduce errors and help us keep on track with we're trading was going. Technology could deliver on that, but the the business of the organization had to change to fully take advantage of the technology and the way people did that mission and use technology had to change along the way. So I think in each of those organizations that taught me that for that, that triangle has to be kind of guided together to get to an outcome mission technology and people if you really want to be able to fully. Whether it's take advantage of a market or stay ahead of an adversary in our own mission here in the ICU dod that triangle has to work together and you have to communicate every those three planes together when talking about why the changes needed. So an in your tenure at NSA, you've served as its first chief risk officer. The assistant deputy director of operations, the head of the Russia's small group, and now the head of the Cybersecurity Directorate. Can you take us through your trajectory there how did your responsibilities differ from roll to roll? Absolutely, and so I came into an Santa's small team part of a small team that was standing up cyber command, the chief risk officer role was. was created after the media leaks period of two, thousand, thirteen where we learned that. Really appreciating risk mount looking at in a holistic way across partnership risk operational. Risks Technology risks. We learned that we needed to adapt the way we looked at risk and then change according to that. So I think in each of those roles. Either, the adversary was changing around us a threat was changing around us. We. Wanted to take advantage fully of an opportunity and I was responsible for taking the big picture strategic goals, translating those two measurable outcomes and objectives and helping you know contribute, communicate the why and then bringing the team of people along to get their each other's efforts was a bit different. But you know. We talked about the risk of doing the risk of not doing weighing that appropriately we talked about the insuring that as we approached new missions policy and technology move together, and certainly when we looked at the elections work in two, thousand, eighteen, the Russia's small group work we saw we're adversaries of have used influence operation since the time of Adam and Eve perhaps would have changed was again the ability to use social media to both focus and directed to have larger impact. So focusing on the Russia's small group for just a second and what was that what was the what was the mission and what were your responsibilities with regard to the two thousand eighteen election's to the extent that you can talk about that. Absolutely. So the mission was ensuring the integrity of the two thousand eighteen midterm elections ensuring that we I understood the threat second that we appropriately tipped all the information we had about the threat to key partners across the US government. Certainly, FBI from a counter infants perspective digest from Cybersecurity of elections, infrastructure perspective, and they finally that we would support Cyber Command. If if authorized to impose costs, it's were attempts to disrupt. Disrupt the election. So. After the two thousand eighteen election's president trump publicly confirmed that cyber command played a role in deterring the Russians in two thousand eighteen are they're important lessons from what happened in two thousand eighteen about how we as a country can defend ourselves against this this insidious threat. Yes. So you know across the government, we look at two key polls. Integrity one is attempts to malignly influence population whether that is to highlight social discord to highlight issues that divide the population or to. Hand up sheer inappropriate. You know share information as part of shaping individuals ideas, and then the second is potentially interfering hacking into elections infrastructure as part of efforts to change the vote and I think the first pieces, the value of resiliency. The sense that you know once trust is lost, it's very hard to regain. So the knowledge for the American public that there are hundreds of people across the US government committed to and working to ensure the integrity of our elections. When it comes to counter influence though the biggest resilience as each of us. As Americans when we're reading something asking who might be trying to influence me what is the source of that information I fully confident in that source of that information. And then finally the role of the role of technology and the role of Public Private Partnership. In as part of elections integrity. So for us in the intelligence community were constantly watching for which adversaries maybe seeking to to shape a populations thinking to shape an election and then rapidly tipping that to partners or. To the private sector to ensure that they're both aware of techniques and our countering them on their platforms. So we've since learned shocked last week the updates from deny that the Russians continue to engage in election interference, the Chinese, the Iranians, and the punchline of all that for me is it's really hard to deter. Foreign interference right and I'm wondering if it's something special about foreign interference or if it's more about cyber at the end of the day and the difficulty of seeing cyber attributing it if you see it, how do you think about that question absolutely I think it is more about cyber than about elections from a cyber perspective when we look at fully both protecting cyber infrastructure and then to your second point about attribution, there's complexity laying what we call the red on top of the we may see threats. That are talked about strategic perspective and then we partners across the US government a looking to see where does that present itself? Where are the given vulnerabilities in a given infrastructure? The powers when you can lay the two together and say, here is a nation state that has intent to interfere in whatever that is an election critical infrastructure. I Pete Best and then translate that to the tactical level to say that network scanning or that vulnerability in hardware or software may well be used to achieve the objective putting that in place, and then most importantly preventing it because at the end of the day riding report about a victim and notifying the victim is far less satisfying than being able to put that together and prevent the adversary cheating their objective. So we've already started to shift now into your new role, right which was relaunched in October I believe. So be great if you could, and if you could explain for our listeners I, what NASA's two main missions are. Again and then cybersecurity and the difference between them just to give folks here level set absolutely. So Ns as a foreign intelligence agency were responsible for understanding a broad range of threats. Presented by governments to the United States, one of those threats include our cyber threats how nations may be using cyber to achieve their national objectives as that might be intellectual property theft for example, to counter the department defensively Thallady by accelerating foreign governments ability to to actually productized particular rnd for weapon that may be targetting critical infrastructure of a country. As part of threatening that country or as part of putting pressure on a given country. So that is the threat information on the second side. And say has cybersecurity mission. We're celestial known We build the keys codes and cryptography that's used to protect all of US government's most sensitive communications thinking nuclear command control weapon systems, the president's communications with allies, and we provide technical advice to mitigate those same threats that I talked about. So the really the he integration of the two missions where we think the magic is where we can say here's what we think adversaries are seeking to do, and here's how from a cybersecurity perspective we recommend you protect against. So so what motivated and the relaunch of the directorate and has its mission changed at all really good question. So we recognize that we were at a crossroads with national security as both technology and society ships were happening. We saw only kinds of technology that people want to from small satellites to Internet of things and each of those presents huge advancements. But they also present cybersecurity risk. Along with that, we saw various nation surtees. New Technologies think North Korean crypto currencies to get around sanctions to achieve their own objectives and we said we really need to up our game to more quickly be understanding those threats and ensuring that. We could both provide advice to build new technologies as early as possible, but also to counter adversaries use of those same technologies to achieve their national security. We're GONNA take a quick break to hear from our sponsor. Dumb. We'll be right back with more discussion with an neuberger. At Lockheed Martin, we're on a mission. Your mission. Not just the next mission but the one that's two steps ahead. That's why we've not only taken the lead in hyper sonics, but we're helping you integrate technology faster than. It's why we're not only developing the laser weapons systems you'll need but deploying them in the field. Our mission is to build the integrated solutions you can depend on because the world is depending on you. So and what are the what are the primary areas of Focus for your directorate? What kind of people work there? What's their skill set and what kind of customers do you serve? Questions. So the first parties. Operationalizing Intelligence. How do we ensure that from the intelligence that we see we took anything that's unique. And timely quickly so that we can prevent the victim. So that's the first, the first piece of of work, our areas of focus are. Both understanding that giving guidance encryption, we believe encryption. A key protection particularly in telecommunications environment that in many cases is entrusted. So both in building the government's special encryption, modernizing that as well as providing advice and insights on how to best use. Encryption the text of people who work cure are like we see him any organizations abroad gamut we have intelligence analyst. We have country-specific experts have a broad swath of technical experts, encryption network technologies, hardware, and software vulnerability analysts as well but the power is weird that can be integrated where you can say. How do you build on route of trust all the way through to an end point? Had you properly defend network and take a step back and do risk analysis to say? We are the gaps in your resilience and we're should your next dollar investment to closest gaps Right, and then what about customers is your is, is it just the Department of Defense? Is that the US government is even broader than that? How do you think about who it is you're working for? Yup Great Question. So there's a specific set work we do for what we call national security systems systems carrying classified information national security information the director. Vanessa is also the national manager for National Security Systems, that's the authority under which as I mentioned, we have we build the keys codes and cryptography responsible for distributing threat information as well. So those are across the US government with a particular focus on duty. Weapons Systems. And Related Systems. A second set of key partners and customers are dhs I. D. H., S. and its role supporting critical infrastructure. And, the sector specific agencies, and like I said the the real magic of understanding the critical infrastructure, we're it's key gaps and vulnerabilities are and being able to marry that up with what a foreign government may be intending to do and providing focused insight. Across the US government, there is broad use of commercial technologies, particularly duty and and national security system. So you may have seen when we're issuing advisories were also issuing advice on how to secure and configure those commercial technologies well because we see that. Those are used all across. Sensitive, systems as well. Your director has issued I think a dozen or so. Advisories about cybersecurity threats. Can you talk about why you guys do that? What the criteria is for quitting one of those out and then how do you think about the impact they have? Do You keep metrics on that? How do you think about? Advisories absolutely. So. Our advisories other way we really do them for three reasons. One is if we see a nation state actor using a particular vulnerability against the system care about we find that it really drives urgency of action people run faster when they're pursued, and if we can say, this nation state actor is using this vulnerability. Here's the mitigation advice to protect yourself against that we see impact and I'll talk about that how we measure that impact at the end. The second thing is there's a deep expertise here because we build and we break encryption. So encryption related technologies like the peons like you. You may recall the windows ten cryptographic vulnerability in January. Those are areas we focus on because we know those are sometimes hard to understand technically hard to implement. So if we can give very practical advice, them will issue those as well to help that be put in place, and then the third would be where there's a timely need and we're getting a lot of questions and we feel that putting out a product helps guide people and thinking about how to think about security I'll give an example. As. As covid. Pressed a lot of organizations across the US government particularly duty as well to move to telework. We started getting a lot of questions about secure collaboration. which commercial tools were safe to us and our goal was teaching people how to evaluate what safe to us. So we issued a product we're laid out the different attributes like. Code is available for review its end to end Krypton and a few other such attributes, and then we rated different secure collaboration publicly available tools against them and the cool part was we had companies call and say, well, you didn't get something quite right or can we be included as well and we said absolutely, we issued a second version and then we have another one coming out next week because our goal was making it as useful as possible and also helping teach people. How to assess. Different. Products for security. You ask the question about how we measure impact. So there's three different measures we've been using. The first is, do we see patch rates go up? They'll do we see for vulnerabilities that we've talked about here is a foreign actor might be using a boehner ability to achieve an objective. Can we watch those patriots go up and it was really cool to see. And a number of cases we've we've watched that increase. The second piece is there is a very capable and active cybersecurity industry has the information shared enable them to better protect. Sensitive US government national security systems networks, and you know in the case of the Xm vulnerability that we issued, we're advisory where we talked about the particular unit of Russian intelligence using the XML male vulnerability. It was really great to see five different cyber-security entities using that to identify other. Russian intelligence infrastructure and then take that down. So that was success for us that we made it harder for that adversary to achieve its objectives, and then the third one is really the feedback on the number of downloads and the feedback from administrators saying this was useful. This was unique timely and actionable could act on it, and then in May you guys took what I thought was an unprecedented step of actually openly attributing the exploitation of vulnerability to the Russian, Gru. and. That seemed to rare to me and I'm wondering why you decided to actually name Russia in this instance. So I it is rare because as you noted earlier, implicitly attributions hard. You may have seen a prior product where we highlighted one st state using another country's. Infrastructure to achieve its objective and then highlight he just hard attribution is. So when it's done, it needs to be done with precision to be confident. In that and we chose to do it because. We see that it makes targeted network owners more quickly patch and secure and build the resilience of their systems network administrators have way more vulnerabilities to address than they have time for or frankly money for and way more alerts than they can act on. So we can say this particular vulnerability is being used by a nation State Intelligence Service. We see them we see network administrators moving quickly and addressing it, and that's a fundamental goal. Fundamental goal is improving cybersecurity. If you kind of step back and look at look at the big picture here, you know, maybe from a thirty five thousand foot level how are we doing? The cyber threats are we barely keeping up? Are we catching up? Are we getting ahead of the game or? Is it always going to be hard for the defender. In this game in because the guy on the offense can always come up come up with something new how you think about sort of where we are in the history of of the threat of cyber and defense against it. I think we points overall technology is getting more secure. Technologies built more securely today. So the fundamental resilience is is improving you know when you have open source products, we have lots of is looking at a given technology and helping find vulnerabilities and address them. That being said were an ever more connected economy in an ever-more connected society, and as we build more connections, sometimes two systems that were not necessarily built for those kinds of connections. Data Systems. In that way, we bring and introduce new risks. On the third poll on the positive side, there's far more awareness about those risks and how to approach addressing them identifying what are the most important assets to protect and ensuring good practices are in place and it's far easier than ever to put that in place. So I think it's a mixed story on the one hand more more technologies built more securely, and there are communities of individuals working together to ensure their secure on the other hand far more. Technology some of which. Is connected in ways that bring risk in ways that we always have to and I guess the third part, which is where we started adversary seeking to take advantage of those risks to achieve their objectives. So. If you if you were standing in front of a large multinationals board of directors in you're talking to them about cybersecurity. What's the one or two things that you would absolutely want them to take away from from your conversation? What is the tangible thing you most want to protect and what's the intangible thank you most want to protect. So if you're drug company, what is the intellectual property that's going to be your next potentially big drug big driver of economic growth, big driver of healing, and then second what's the biggest intangible? Thank perhaps, that's your reputation. The way you treat your employees, the price, the prices that you charge and what you're, what you're. How much you mark that up. Make sure that you're protecting both carefully make your your cyber security commensurate with with the risk presented to you if you lose either one. And you mentioned you mentioned Skater Systems and I'm not sure that all my listeners know what those are just explain that and then is there something? Is there something special about protecting data system from protecting? Normal network absolutely. So Skater Systems are essentially control systems for the core areas of infrastructure in a given country in a given company. So think power systems clean water drug manufacturing. and. Those are. Those are often complex system. So what's unique about them is you know those systems over the years were often built four reliability in the event of a bad storm that power system would come back online with confidence as. More technologies got connected. So for example, the ability to measure. Use of power the ability to measure confidence in in water and chemical level. Some of those systems got connected to network systems that provide a way to access them. One of the joint products we recently issued between Ns. WAS An ICS product because there had been some public articles about. a given attack against skater systems in the Middle East, and we wanted to ensure that we together with. One of our closest partners was providing technical advice to. Skate entities in the US based on what we were learning about those attacks. So interest, a couple more questions you've been terrific with your time. Seems to be an effort on the part of an essay to kind of open up the black box and showed the reputation no such agency right. Your conversation with me thinking example of that why is that a priority for for the agency and for General Nakasone? I in the cybersecurity mission fundamentally if we're not trusted we can't achieve our intact. People take advice from those they trust and the power of. Across the US Government Team USA work cyber. There each organization plays its position within that role. You Know My counterpart at Digest Chris Crabs often talks about them being the national risk managers. At an essay, we believe what we can bring uniquely is that integration of intelligence series of seeking to do what their capabilities are, what their infrastructure looks like and how to defend against cyber security advice to counter that, and that's always continuing because technologies change adversaries, goals change, and the resilient always has to be increased to meet that. So we want to be trusted to achieve what we believe. We can uniquely contribute to team USA on cyber. The first step to doing that is conveying, we are conveying the culture that's here the commitment to American values, and certainly WanNa part of our mission is an intelligence mission. In a in a democracy, we have an obligation to ensure that the Americans we serve. Feel they understand the values which we live. So your your former colleague and my really good friend Glenn Gerstl road. Op Ed about a year ago about what he saw the. Profound implications of the Digital Revolution on national security, and he raised a lot of concerns and among those was the sheer pace and scale and volume of technological change and. And data that's GONNA force intelligence agencies including NSA to fundamentally change how they do business I was GonNa say thinking big picture about those kinds of challenges. What are you trying to tackle I? Would've the adjustments look like, how do you? How do you think about the challenge that Glenn laid out? Absolutely, so I from the perspective of large amounts of data and ensuring, we can make sense of them. Ensuring that we can do big data analysis to help. Triage the information we identify and determine what are people are big assets put their time on to determine he's and how to act on them. So for example. We we're looking at machine learning to classify malware and we're certainly looking at. Machine learning potentially to help us identify vulnerabilities scale particularly when we look at systems that represent thirty years of technology like muffins systems, how do you secure a weapon system? That's been out there and represent each phase of technology and have confidence in its resilience and in command and control. And then finally. We have an obligation to both bring those technologies to be on our mission and understand how adversaries might use that and manage that accordingly. So for example, as we think about artificial intelligence and the potential to automatically. Direct weapon. In the United States we have strong values around how we would think about automation versus human control. In other countries around the world, there might be different ways that those kinds of decisions are approached. So how do we ensure that we both? Bring that integration of. Compliance and technology to the way we pursue it but also be aware of those gaps and keep an eye on the risks of those gaps. And you mentioned you mentioned people and you mentioned people a couple of times and and just took two questions about that. One is given the competition that you face with all of these cyber security firms and. Your folks must be very attractive to them, and their skills are quite valuable in their private sector. How how difficult is it for you to recruit and retain talent? Really thoughtful question because you asked two questions in their recruit entertained. So. From the recruit side, we get really great people. On the routine side. We have a really compelling mission. and. What brings keeps people. Here is the sense that they're contributing to something bigger than themselves. That is challenging fulfilling. It's on us as organizational leaders to ensure that each person has that opportunity to contribute what they can uniquely bring chew to that mission. And one of the one of the cool aspects of the Cybersecurity standup has been people who have left to call in and say, Hey, I'd like to come back I learned a lot. In the private sector, the missions, calling me and like to contribute again, and we've hired a number of them back and continuing to increase that and part of the message we have when people if people do decide to leave is to say that is great. You will continue to contribute to the nation's security. You'll learn a lot in the five at sector, and if you ever want to come back the doors open. What do you? What do you want the American people to know about the women and men who work for you. That, they're committed to the values. That this country was established for. That there are significant threats to the United States, our allies and to those values, and that not always can we talk about those threats because? By impact sometimes intelligence community, even the security mission has to operate in those shad in the show does so. Trust our values, trust that we are proud Americans. We swear an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and if you do question it or if you want to learn more roll up your sleeves and come into the for a few years and get to know what yourself because each person has unique abilities and a unique ability to contribute to their to their country in whatever way they choose whether that's government are in the private sector. But if you ever doubt it come on in and work here and and raise your voice and be a part of it. It sort of takes you back to what your parents taught you to. It really does it my dad grew up in in communist Hungary and In the beginning when I came into government, he would call me on the phone sometimes and switched to a foreign language and. I realized that for him growing up in another country. Is that complete trust of government that I American born? You know have that doesn't mean it's trust and verify it's from verify but there are things that I take for granted growing up in this society that I don't know if he ever will. So being able to look at things through his eyes and through mind make me realize how fortunate we are to be here and how much we have obligation to. To ensure it stays that way. And thank you so much for joining us and thank you for your service. Thank you so much for your time.

You're excited because honestly we're recording this little bit early you're listening to this. Holy. Cow, it is August. That's right. It's August this. Time in twenty twenty is the weirdest thing. It's like I. IT still feels like February February went forever. Then all of a sudden it was August and yet. I don't know there's like none of those markers like didn't see your mom for mother's Day like don't go away for this birthday and so like. It's faster yet slower. It's the weirdest remembers I remember sitting in bad in like March and being like Jeff do think this whole quarantine thing could go onto like a bro like asking just like totally well I remember you asking me that too yeah and I was like. Yeah. I also can't believe since you're lake was born since February. I've literally seen you in person only wants it once or twice I saw you on the street. Yeah. I didn't see each other again. Because I see you so often, but I see you on the show will me I I think this is our lives. Now this is this but this is so sad it can't be like this. It can't be like this. I know I know well, for people who enjoy summer, which isn't Jessen I might alright bringing the rest on your summer like happy August to you for everybody else who just really hot and sweaty right now we're getting through it. We're just getting. Some are in the city. I always have that like hot Tom Summer in the city song every time like go outside just like feet pounding the pavement. Yeah, and then it just slows down into like a milky. As Long. As. Low a nineteen seventies like cast over everything just like doom and gloom summer of Sam the seriously it's not fun right now anyway, let's bring the phone. Let's bring the levity. Bring the joy. What do we got this week? Let me tell you. We've got the headlines. We've got men wearing makeup. Okay. I'm very excited about this trend I feel like we report on this like every six months but I feel like there's always a tweak there's always a new span. There's always a new angle can't wait to talk about this and we are going to answer a listener's question about behind the scenes at fat Mascara how the sausage gets made, and of course, we're GONNA raise wand all that well done Jeff I'm excited about this show you ready to do it. Let's get hot town in the city. than. Them doing the news. Virtually, from my vacation just kidding I'm recording the Ireland I should've said. Before we're doing an early not early in the morning earlier than we would because janitors going on vacation. That's how much we love you. Instead of US being L., we're going to take a week off. Oh No, we've recorded double that episode for you. So if some huge news comes out at the end of August and it is not including this, you cannot blame me I was just thinking like watch oprah like surprise drop beyond style like a makeup line like Oprah's makeup line and we don't talk about it like every facet like off their game it's because I'm recording early just so you know. Okay. So remember last week when we talk about Clare Sonic Failing Jason, you're like, well, they're no dummies all those people are going to be. You know they'll find something to work on. Well, did they ever? So Dr, Rob We've both interviewed I know. He actually left the company before it closed and started up this brand called Oculus and so this is where all the technology's going. It's launching in the fall. It's basically like you know a courage coffeemaker. It's like that for skin care. So I, gotTa look at it. It's a little like device you putting these pods.

Confirmed and rumored Xbox Series X games

"Yesterday. We watched a conference from Microsoft. The xbox series acts so tell us a little bit about that. Yeah, it was kind of their first big showcase for game. Specifically, some people really want them to talk about like price a release stay. There was no mention of the much rumored cheaper. That our colleague Tom has reported on quite a bit It was just entirely focused on games. Coming to the series Ax and other xbox platforms of which there are many okay, here's the thing I actually really prefer that because for me. Any reason to buy a console is going to be the games coming to it so whenever they do events like this where they're just like here is like twenty things that you'll wanna buy. That's mostly for me there specifically making it for me, thank you, Microsoft. And they had a lot of specifically like their first party. South Microsoft studios stuff. They were showing off with Halo. Kind of key component. Yeah, definitely doesn't I. Can console without a new halo. h-a-l-o is pretty, and it looks big, and can you tell that I'm not a halo player I don't know. Do you mess around with it much? I'm not super huge on it and I mean I think it looks like a halo game. It sounds like they're doing some interesting stuff. They said there's not going to be sequels. So at some kind of service gain that will keep being updated, but it's not really clear how that's GonNa work by me. It looks like a big showcase halo game, so there's that. We have confirmed is a game so for me. Personally, one of the most exciting reveals didn't happen until the very end, and it was like a barebones reveal. Fable, which we haven't gotten a new one since. Twenty ten was when three came out because they've done a couple. Lay off shoot, weird little things, but nothing like a full game, so was being made by playground games, which is kind of a weird option because they work on the series, it's still really unclear like what exactly this new game will be there. Just calling it fable right now, which is definitely not confusing at all the at minor. Minor standing. Is that playground actually been hiring a bunch of people who've worked on some more triple A. Open World Games, so it seems like they've been staffing up for this, but even still it's not a studio that's known for this kind of game. Obviously so It's hard to to get much from knowing. They're working on it and such kind of a brief tea's like they showed. I mean the good news is. There's also of course going to be on its own. We also saw out from city. We've got a couple other interesting games. was there anything that stuck out to you? Specifically? So the the game that looked most interesting to me was a actually reveal during the Jeff Kelly's pre show. We Love Jeff for victims of Jeffrey, Moore of course, and it's from Eugene who's best known as the dude behind sonic. The hedgehog hauled has a very strange thing Balan. Wonder World, and it just kind of looks like screen a bunch money to make a wild nights into dreams spiritual successor some very into that I. don't actually know what that means. What does that mean for people like me? Who never played that Super Mario Odyssey but very very strange. I appreciate your pronunciation Mario. You have a very good spin on that. The Canadian accent other than that another game that really stuck out to me. That I'm personally excited about is. Don't tell me why, so they of course their the life is strange series, and this one looks kind of along the same lines, but outside of that actual series, so it's going to be episodic. It's a little bit confusing. Because originally, the dead said they were GONNA release all three at once, and then in the announced yesterday. It said that I can't remember exactly how they phrased it, but it made. It seem like. Maybe just the first one was coming next. Next month, but basically it's about American teens. Alaskan teens are kind of struggling with their past. On the big thing about this is that one of their main characters is trans? We'll delve heavily into his background in some of his I. Guess like emotional things growing up, so it's very interesting with games like this. There's always quite a bit of opportunity for them to get this wrong, but so far not has had an interesting approach. They put up an Faq. They've been trying to think handle this as well as they can. But I guess we'll see how it actually pans out. I mean I'm excited for anything. They make pretty much, so yeah. I really loved it. This French studio is so invested in telling American American stories. That, capture that that feeling that we have here if nothing else, I hope it gets more people to play strange to which I don't think enough people did my God. Yeah, you're totally right, so another one is remedies new game that really stuck out to me and curious what your thoughts are at. Actually had the chance to kind of talk with some of the folks that remedy before the showcase, and it's kind of a weird one. So it's called crossfire x, and it's actually like this hugely popular Korean online shooter from the studio called Smell, gate and like five years ago, they came up to remedy and we're like hey, do you want to make a single player component it and that's what they're doing, so it seems kind of like a weird collaboration, but what I saw is really cool. It's like a military shooter, but has like the weird remedy. NECE that you'd expect almost has like some Kajima vibes to it, so I'm very. Very curious to check that out when it's finally ready to play, which is supposed to be some point this year, but not sure what

Text-to-Speech Wizardry - Niclas Bergstrom, ReadSpeaker

"Our? Our goal is to be the number one platform independent to specialists and what we do apart from developing selling web-based SAS solutions for learning management systems and educational content so forth speech, naming websites bill so develop high-quality custom voices spilled using deep learning methods that you can deploy basic on any hardware aging from embedded systems to high capacity servers, or in our cloud very nice. Okay, so that's the nicest distinct explanation. What kinds of applications do companies use your text to speech voices for then what the main areas you sees them being employed for. I think it's all the traditional industries if I've your call centers of course, but also since we have lots of the small footprint, high-quality Texas beach voice his where quite big in the embedded space as well so for can be anything from assistive technologies, these by people with impairments or Romans, or any non connected device, so that is I think one of how sorry I totally lost here. and. I'm thinking embedded devices, but these are things that help people speak. People have lost the ability to speak. Acceptability, on the web, we're kind of thing. Yes, accessibility for people that struggling with reading a lot of contents on the screen, basically so they can have help. Basically having their content read outs online directly into learning management systems or directly in the educational content again. Yeah, and then what we have seen of course in the last year of course, an explosion of a requests coming from burs, kinds of dialogue system so voice interaction platforms, virtual assistant, smart speakers, and that is why we started to focus quite a lot on streamlining our process to develop custom voices interesting, okay. Okay so this whether the businesses picking up on this speak aside then what kind of applications what kind of things that people actually using these custom voices for? Why would people choose to use a accustomed voice on a voice application as opposed to just the standard Alexa voice for instance with the Google voice well, I think there are a few different reasons I mean one is that if you have your own voice, your branded voice that are sort of well aligned with your your brand values and sort of its sounds like the company that you want to sound. Like. A, logo type basically so or graphical to sign that you use for your company voice is equally powerful in the voice space, because if if all the information and applications from older brands for example, not one of the popular platforms assistance platforms, if they all sound the same, so of course quite difficult to distinguish one brand for from an utter I think in the brandon voices like with lower types and. And stuff there are certain brand values that you can communicate to get war. Yeah, it's truly the what you're saying to convey the values of your brand to be more memorable. I guess as well so people recognize your brand through the sounders in addition to the visual kind of branding the everyone's today, not make sense you see. Guys produce high-quality text to speech voices using deep learning models to older. Older is that right? These are unique voices. You make for each company. Is that right? Yeah, yeah, correct I, mean we do have Jerem ninety different voices of the shelf to has more in a thirty five different languages currently. We're used to grow that quite a bit this year, but really even though if you can, you can tweak the existing voices have slightly different character and so forth but many. Many customers do want to have their. You know they have specific requirements on what their voice. Their corporate voice sort of should sound like some customers even have their voice talents. If they are currently using for can be in the VR system can be four different touch points like a radio commercials for TV commercials, so it's it's a voice that when you hear it. You immediately associated with this brand. On the the sort of sonic branding part, some the have very strong preference of having a specific sort of language, obviously gender age should be like very formal sound should be more like a young hip sound or How does your brand sound I mean that is the important question and that is identified is about scouting the right speaker that fits well with those requirements and basically start to produce a custom tedious voice.

A New Album Turns The Sound Of Endangered Birds Into Electronic Music

"An international collective of electronic deejays and composers is taking their beats out of the dance club, and into jungles and forests. It's all to help save nature's greatest singers. Birds Catalina Maria. Johnson has the story of a guide to the Birdsong Project Robin. Perkins is a thirty three road DJ composer producer originally from glass of England. He goes by the name A. Spanish for the. Perkins produced his first project in Twenty fifteen a guy to the Birdsong of South America. The whole project was born of this idea of taking the songs of endangered birds and challenging musicians to make a piece of music from and so trying to marry these worlds of activism, all conservation Goodson and joining us. Perkins invited artists from each of the endangered or threatened birds homelands to build their own solves around the Birdsong. The beautiful thing about electronic music is that it opens up this whole toolbox of things that you can vies do right so you can take a sample of a bird song and do five million things to it. You can turn into an instrument itself. You can reverse it. You can have effects. You can sample. Ed Perkins has just finished the second project. A guy to the Birdsong of Mexico Central, America and the Caribbean. One of the musicians who responded to his call is Nicaraguan Sonic artist that on behavioral. She chose the Turquoise Proud Maat Maat or Guatemala. rankle to me was a very clear choice as a child I would see this bird freely flying around and meeting his partner, the travel in pairs most of the time in my backyard for sunsets. Beautiful mystical moment every day. What about wrangle is threatened by loss of habitat primarily due to deforestation, it's also Nicaragua's national bird. This bird represents a lot of symbolic in my area of the world's, because it represents freedom and these Central American countries have been striving for political social economic freedom for a long time. The idea of freedom was also part of the impetus for Al Ovando choice. Ovando is a member of the renowned Gutty for collective, that also includes musicians from what the my love on us and Nicaragua for the collective's contribution to the album Ovando chose the endangered black cat. Like the guava uncle, the black cat birds freedom is threatened by loss of habitat. Obando feels his people have a special kinship with the catbird and struggle for survival, like you've just imagining US coming all the way from the coast of West Africa into the Caribbean, ending up in believes that still continuing the struggle and trying to be part of what the world is today. Ovando also happens to be a devoted burger. He even convinced the. The band to add a technical writer to its contracts when the musicians perform at festivals, so we know what we should just add it on and just put just for fun. You know some of us in the collective avid burgers, and if it here's anybody at the festival. Who'd like to burning? We would love to go birding with them married. They would know some places some hot spots. In Oh, we could check out some birds. As with the first scalpels, all of the profits from the new release will support organizations in each region. One of them is birds, Caribbean. It's executive director Lisa. Sorenson explains how the recording not only help her efforts, but may also yield extended benefits helping to develop sites in the Caribbean that need infrastructure for example, there might be a beautiful place to go see birds, but there's no trail. There's no interpretive sign edge there to tell you about what you're seeing. So we're envisioning funding from this project will help us advance building the supply and building the demand for sustainable burden nature tourism. That's project founder. Robin Perkins wish to yeah. Hopefully people will come away from the album. Feeling inspired and feeling the need to listen against the Birdsong around them to do something to protect the natural spaces that we need to survive proceeds from a guide to the Birdsong of Mexico Central America, and the Caribbean will also benefit nonprofits in Costa Rica and Mexico.

Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica

"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings.

She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

Hypersonics: Where the Technology is and Where it is Going

"We're here to talk about hypersonic technologies, and you know the really changing the world for military competition among the world's nations to create weapons so fast and maneuverable. They're very hard to shoot down to innovations that could enable rapid civilian travel from New York to Hong Kong or multi-stage access to space. These hypersonic pursuits are really pushing the boundaries. Of National Budgets and the laws of physics. Wanted to turn to Graham, I He really helped. Conceive of a grand package of stories. We have on hypersonic weapons and hypersonic technologies and I wondered if you could give us a broad overview and a snapshot of these developments. For our listeners. Yes, so the mantra of hype has always been that. Hypersonic is the future and always will be well the news as that. this is the future or getting close to the future we after decades and decades of on and off development we, we have several hypersonic weapons programs that are that are getting close to. That are either in the early stages of operation. If they're in Russia or China, or the US are getting close to operation so. So, we thought it was a good time to sort of bring our readers up to speed. Both on the on those weapons systems that are that are in those final stages of development early stages of deployment. the evolving. Field of how do we counter these weapons? Because as you say, there are very very difficult to to intercept. And also, to really make clear to people that we are just at the beginning, even after all these decades we are still just at the beginning of this journey, and there are an awful lot of technical challenges that still lie ahead for hypersonic spirit, really to to realize its potential and become more than just a a niche capability more than just you know, in essence, very limited capability, but something that is much more flexible incapable of our time, and as you say, could be used in in applications well beyond the initial military applications. So this was an attempt to sort of. Take a step back and take a look at where we got to, but where we also still have to go. Steve I wanted to turn to you next to. You really delved into our. The United States is. Hyper Sonics Offensive and defensive weapons capabilities. It seems like the US is is. In a transition phase from Technological Development to really winnowing that field down to technologies that might be producible. Can you talk about some of? The the most viable programs that are underway. The army has one. Why don't you start? Challenge where to start right I mean there's three different tracks of hypersonic. Weapons there's four different operational prototypes at least three different demonstrators. Those are just the ones we know of when we talked to contractors like Lockheed and Raytheon. They say they're also working on a couple of classified programs that we're not totally sure what what they are. Let me start in kind of picking up on where Graham was You know saying we're here, we're we're in the age of Hyper Sonics. And really that began on a specific day. It was Mayford twenty seventeen. That was when the secretary of the Air Force at the time. Lisa Diso signed the authorization. For the for the requirement of the airlines, rapid response weapon and that was A. That is a historic moment in the era of hypersonic. That was the first time military service stood up and said we are going to. Weaponize this technology. This thing that we've been working on and you know playing with experimenting with for decades we're GONNA make it a weapon now. Obviously, they were doing that because Russia and China already beat them to the punch. In in that case, but The for US hypersonic technology. It was an historic moment So you know And, that was the air force doing it the army navy weren't that far behind after completing a fleet experiment. One of the Common Hypersonic Glide Body in November of two thousand, seventeen the army and navy made the commitment to jump in to hypersonic weapons programs as well. So where we are today, so it's three years on. A. we you know we're starting to just like every other weapons development program in Hightech. You know endeavor from the Pentagon. There are some issues right? Arrow is probably about a year behind schedule. It's risk reduction effort. Darpa working on. The tactical boost glide program. It's also a year behind schedule The overall program is thirty nine thirty nine percent over budget going to the Government Accountability Office. They've had to cancel one program. The Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon, which was going to use the same common hypersonic right buddy that would be the army and the navy versions of the same missile. They canceled that diverted the funding to cover the offset in Arrow. And the meantime they've also launched a follow onto a scrim jet powered missile demonstrator. So, there's been a lot of different moving

New Rainbow Six Content Coming Out

"They also announced the UBISOFT team announce that there's new rainbow six content coming so I got the press release that I have here. I'm not GonNa read this whole thing. But essentially it's the second season for twenty twenty of siege for year five. That's your five that we're in now. It's wild I think it's the game is just better. Operation Steel wave is what it's called an introduces two new operators ace and Maluzi new attacker and a defender from Norway and South Africa in addition to an entirely reworked house map and a slew of gameplay changes. We won't go too deep into the weeds here except to say that they're looking for from factions. That I'm not too familiar with yeah. They're they're unfamiliar for shore. Ace looks like it. Uses the attacker from looks like a rescue unit of some type and then Melissa the defender has very interesting character design with her braids but aside from that. They're they're not very familiar at all like they don't clearly belong to any of the factions that we've seen yet do you thank her. Braid design is a South African thing. It's not a felony design It I mean it looks like it's too thick it like it. Looks like hair on top of hair so I I would imagine that it was just something that they didn't enemy urged didn't dumb draft out natively like it's something put on top of an existing players show. Now that I see it up close it does look like a wig. Looks LIKE CORN? Row Wig omos. Yeah it's I mean. They tried how how someone is is literally amazing air every time. How do you feel about this choice? Are You mad about it or you? Like I'll take the representation. Oh Immune it's always a mixed bag with hair and in representation for black women specifically but I mean they. They gave it a go and other other than our hair. She looks cool It's a very interesting gadget. That she has so I give them pass on this one. I have a lot of love remo sick. So they'll get the forgiveness this time. What's her gadget? I haven't looked at this. Just pull up the video so that Steiner and I can take a look. Yeah some operator. Gameplay yes so for from Lucy the defender Gadget is a banshee. Sonic defense and it looks a lot like diggers what I would. I forget what it's called. Whatever the anti-grenade where you can put it on walls or surfaces and it emits a pulse. Sonically that will slow and disoriented people as they approach it and from what I can read here you actually have to disable it by hitting it or by hitting it with something very very close range so it seems pretty decent on slowing down and that in combination with the new proximity alarm which is a sticky grenade that you could probably put on ceiling. This could be a real problem for for really aggressive attackers. I like that. They're putting in some of these defenses for aggressive attackers. Because I think that it kind of changes up the dynamic even though I think we all agree that being the defending team always feels inherently easier than mainly attacking team. Which is why we got the really aggressive defender in the last round. The guy whose name I can't remember. But he can like jump up level or ix or x Ten. But if you guys aren't playing rainbow six or you've never played Rambo six. Now's a great time to jump in. There's so much happening in the game. The Operation Steel. When does that do have a date? There did I just put the Dayton when it goes live Live delays date. I see all the notes here on the video. They announced this week in the description box. I could also pull up the press release again. Sorry everybody listening hoops. Nope it's not in the description back dealer so little halloween or no. Y'All know say not seen either. Maybe there's no maybe in the future this will be in the game happening soon happening after this show airs. We're not we're not giving area take we're just gonNA keep you guessing.

"I almost got to wonder if it's not someone being a jerk. I if. Or Brussels, man, it's processed doing all this. They're screwing with them. Now. I don't know what that means. Exactly. Brussels. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Probably not. But I get your point. Yeah. Yeah. So anyways, I I don't know what to say about this. But it's the thing, and and this era, Mexico billing thirty seven thing. I don't quite understand. Why we don't have better information on this? You know, I don't know. I don't understand. I don't get it. Maybe we'll maybe we'll do some research and talk about it next time next item on the list. Fedex so Cessna has announced a new aircraft model, which they're calling. Sorry. Opening the page here. They're calling the. There's a name to non lost here. Where to go sky career the sky Currier, which looks very much like a caravan. But with twin engines, yeah, it's sort of my simple over simplification of it and new airplane models. Always an interesting thing. But it's actually there's actually you kept trivia reason why highlighted the story and just wanted kind of touch on it real quickly. Here. Do you know, and I've told you this? But you may not remember do you know, what the U cap- connection to the Cessna caravan the logo is the caravan the logo is the care of good. Thank you. I did. Although I should show you I I was playing around one day. I created two new versions of the cap logo the same form the same look all right as the one we've been using for twelve years. All right. But instead of the silhouette of a of a caravan I made one that was the silhouette Sola of an Ronca champ. And I made one that was a solo it of a Sonics Dave's model Sonics. And so I think I'd stash those away for for when when it might be more appropriate to to display them. But yeah, so new version of the care. I'm not sure what this little twin. Maybe it just has more carrying power because it's got two engines because the caravans like a, you know, a real workhorse, right? Yeah. Thirty years now. Yeah. Caravan does what it does very well. Couple of things it does not do. Well, I is one of them really and deal with an engine failure is another one right because it's only got one. The one. So I can certainly see where Cessna FedEx and other interested parties might be looking at, you know, kind of upgrade it'll be interesting. I, you know, sisters. Really now Textron and it's unclear to me how committed Textron is to. Developing new aircraft. Yeah. And it doesn't I don't get the feeling that this airplanes very far along in development. Almost got the feeling that it was kind of like a run this up the flagpole and see, you know, pictures are very very casual kinds of pictures of a drawing of potential airplane. I don't know I they announced Scott career. She lives it early this year late last year. Really I didn't realize it was that long ago. Yeah. And the sky career. Is hasn't more cargo volume and the care van? It also has the more carrying capacity weightwise. Yeah. Yeah. And then there's that whole icing and single engine performance, which caravan does well with single and shouldn't. But it's the only Incheon, and yeah, another thing I always found. Notable about the caravan was that the gear doesn't retract doesn't on the Scott courier even. And that's what I was just looking for to see with a different since. Since courage. Okay. Yeah. Cessna sky Kurt. Well, that's an interesting looking picture that looks like a simulation to is. Yeah. Let's fix care. Yeah. The knows me retract, but the mainstone look like they do. So anyways, anyways. Yeah. Well, we'll have to we'll have to get a silhouette of of the sky Currier make it part of the cap logo right into just for completeness sake. You know? Yeah. We're reaching sort of reaching the end of our time. And I really wanted to spend some time talking about this ALPA's classic aircraft contests on what makes a contest. But they did a survey where they asked people for the mo- favorite or most popular or whatever airplanes of all time. And it's an interesting list, and I'd like spend some time talking about so I'm going to save that maybe for next episode anybody's curious. They can do Google search for ALPA's classic craft contest twenty eighteen something you wanted to add real quickly David or can I move on?.

Can I get a supply of that? Because she just. It just just just call. Can we make that happen? Can we can we make that make that happen? Collins going down the slopes right now. Like, he's Collins a huge skier. He loves skiing skis with the son all the time. He and Jackson that's kind of their thing. Right. They bond through through skiing. My thing skiing. I look growing up basketball player basketball family. We don't usually St. we just don't you don't have one the time in the winter or the ability to hurt your knee. But I enjoy hitting the slopes. My problem with the slopes is it's a little bit like Franklin is a little bit like golf. I like. I have gone up. I've gone down. I put the whole outfit on. I got the rush of going down the mountain. I don't wanna go through the the double black diamonds where I could die. But I'll do something fairly challenging, and I can do it with my kid like that's cool. But then I'm like, I'm dumb. My I got skiing ADD much like golf ADD like fourteenth home like all right? Wrap. This thing up. You know, when you're listening to songs now, you can just skip to the next song. You know, he played pickup basketball like you play into seven by ones. Or you playing, you know, fifteen twos and threes that thinking end pretty quickly you can walk away. Like, you're like halfway up the mountain. You're like I'm kind of done here. I'm kind of checked out finished. I just I I can't imagine like three or four five days of skiing dead to me. I have zero interest. None. I prefer to watch hoop play loop watch football play football with the kid. Anyway, speaking of hoop. The lakers. What's what's amazing about Christmas day games is that it is a little bit of an elixir, and it covers up some of your works as much as the Lakers were playing amazing basketball coming into their game against the warriors. A one twenty seven one zero one win on the road against the warriors with the Brian James in the trading room in the fourth quarter. They had actually lost three or four coming in. They had lost four of six coming into that game. Like, really like. Yeah. They actually weren't playing good ball. They lost at home to the grizzlies lost to the nets into the wizards. And of course, they got stopped by the rockets, but what many people have said in. It is on some level accurate is this is a great continuing audition for many of the younger players bringing back healthy. Now, they're not gonna have Rondo tonight. And this is coming off of Rondos fifteen point ten assist performance in closing the game out against the warriors. Not. Gonna Rondo knocking to have the she got all the young cats. Right and lands and some of the others. I think tonight's game is huge four one one Laker in particular that Laker is the one who seems to be discussed the most last year, and the least this year. That's Lonzo ball, Lonzo is the defacto point guard when the bronze in even though the bronze really the point guard, right? Lonzo ball's averaging nine points a game. He actually statistically is playing better win. The bronze on the floor. He plays off the basketball. And he gets it some in transition and now he has to run the team and try and create offense from self and for others, and he's doing so against Aaron FOX and the kings, Indiana, FOX course looks crossed the court and sees the guy who was the number two overall pick in the same draft class and thinks it doesn't even matter the kings, kind of like how the Lakers beating the warriors made the other losses. The four of six losses. Kind of meaningless if the kings who lost the clippers last night beat the Lakers last night, doesn't even matter. This is a huge game for Lonzo who wasn't very good against the grizzlies didn't do much against the warriors so much. So that Rondo actually lead them to the wind, and though he's had big games like twenty three against Brooklyn. We played as good a basketball as you can play. He's had some stinkers clunkers as well. He's been kind of all over the map. All over the map and last time they took on the Sacramento Kings. They won, but he was too of ten from the floor. Whereas the earned FOX had twenty one seven rebounds and two assists. He's going against one of his contemporaries, it's his team to run. There is really no backup. There is. No lebron. There's no safety net. But there's also no excuses. This is Lonzo time show us your growth in year two and hopefully admit while he's more athletic. He didn't get the off season to work on his game to refine his game. He's trying to do it on the fly. But he's had plenty of games to kind of work through it. And this becomes a massive game for Lonzo ball's present and future future with the LA Lakers. His ability to commit every NBA players like look, man, if you pro rate my numbers, you give me thirty five minutes. I'll give you twenty and ten every got. Well, I got a chance. There's no backup. There's no LeBron ball dominant superstar show us in year two you can be anywhere near what people thought you would be before you're one and you're going against the second year player who the Lakers dot was better than deer and FOX when drafted because he had a higher ceiling. We got football next hour give you my thoughts on Nick foles and Carson Wentz. And why the choices really really really easy for the eagles. Plus the coaching search with the Green Bay Packers has taken an odd. Twist. How it relates to a viral video but coming up next? I'm Karen Butler about the Lakers. What should we expect of Lonzo? Now, it's his team to run for the next couple of days that Ben maller here. Even if you're a big time basketball fan, there might be a few facts about the game. You don't know by did you know that the first hoops were actually peach baskets or that a warm basketball is bounce you than a cold one or the players can run as much as four miles during a game. Here's another fact, you might not know, that's actually, really.

"Nine oh, wait on a Tuesday here on WCTC. Oh, Eric Nelson for our Momberg. Thanks for tuning in the hammer. Craig Shrek for us our studio coordinator, wearing the Seattle Sonics basketball shirt a throwback. Never forget. So when Seattle gets the long-awaited expansion team that. To replace the Sonics, what will the nickname bee? Okay. They've got the rights that name. I think they'll bring it'll be like the Cleveland Browns. Exactly. Unfortunately, the Minnesota North stars became the wild. Well, see the thing is the Browns had that trend ninety five in the time was just not right? It's just amazing. How many people I know wish the wild were the north stars. And I'll leave it at that. In the newsroom, Ed girl, Harris, he's so good. I simply call him Cronkite in a few minutes. We'll talk to Charles Davis from Fox Sports NFL network. He will be in Charlotte. This week broadcasting the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers game. That's a pretty big matchup. Couple of teams with wildcard hopes later this hour Dominic Marinelli a Kansas City Chiefs superfan from Winnipeg. We'll check in with us Marinelli went to Mexico City expecting to see Casey play the LA Rams, but wound up watching the game. Came from a bar in Mexico City because it was relocated to so Cal and rumor has it he missed quite a game. But joining us now is our good friend. Charles davis. Boy is he plugged into the NFL Charles. Let's start out with what some people are calling epic game last night at the Coliseum. The Rams fifty four the chief fifty-one your takeaways on really an amazing night in Los Angeles. Yeah. It was everything I think the NFL would've wanted obviously, they would have wanted it to happen in Mexico City where they came with scheduled. But somehow some way they fell asleep at the switch and allowed to field conditions to get away from them. It had to make the switch. But what a great contingency contract. It's gonna move a game. And they just need a home in an away team. The home team has keep their stadium available for that week in case if things like what we had in Mexico City. So they didn't even have to Jerry rig. Reagan, you know, Erica they've able to just say, look, here's what the contract says the field's not playable in Mexico City, moved back to LA, and what time to move with everything that's going on there with the fires and the first responders who are doing such an incredible job and given that that that area of the country just a little bit of relief during a very difficult time and the rest of us get to enjoy a classic NFL game, especially with the. Way we're playing NFL football in two thousand eighteen somewhere rain, Nikki exactly grinning, you know. He's like what the heck is that, you know, the purple people eaters is the Minnesota Vikings the late sixties and early seventies who were giving up less than ten points per game. Or like, you've got to be kidding me. But I think most NFL fans. Well, there was a joy to watching last night's game. A lot of young talent older talent established stars breakout. Stars changes we had everything last night. Yeah. And the star power incredible in the shadow Hollywood, Jared Goff, Robert woods, Patrick Mahomes. Travis Kelsey tyreek hill, Aaron Donald. I mean, there were a lot of guys who stepped up on the big stage. Ironically Todd Gurley who is certainly in the MVP race. He didn't put up the gaudy numbers. We're used to seeing. Yeah. He got he got overlooked. Overlook overshadow hope it last night. But Samson epi com, he came so. And I remember scouting him. But he was coming out of college and play. It was on TV a friend of mine. Lancelot did a really nice job at NFL dot com. Doing player profiles. He took me on that linebacker eastern, Washington. It up. Need to punch up and he told me specifically with the look for a play. And I can't remember who again. Where the ball went away. And he was the outside live on the other side of the field and run down the sideline, and he through sheer hustle and athleticism stays with the play all the way from their side of the field makes tackle somewhere. I believe around inside the ten inside the fifteen yard line. If you like working come from. How did he do that? And he said the number his note to me what I'll just keep watching. You'll see plays like that not as dramatic. That's who he is. And what did we see last night? Domino's dramatic plays playing the ball. The line of scrimmage that interception with still can't I still can't get my mind wrapped around the fact that he caught that ball, let alone took it and ran. So we saw a little bit of everything last night. And it was a lot of fun. Watch. One of those games. Kansas City, flew back home. But I don't think they flew back home with their head down at all back home. Like man, we were part of something special. Sure sure would be fun to see them again. Although there's like see him again in Atlanta decide to the Super Bowl and the chiefs become the first team in NFL history to score fifty plus poets in lose a football game. So they're the footnote in the record books, so to speak, and you brought up, you know, the old school defensive guys cringing at this kind of football. And look there were three defensive TD's in that game. So the defense did, you know have its moments, but it's almost like the NFL's version of steroids. Charles has been juice up the record books and change the rules in slant. Everything toward the offenses. I like the little balance myself. I mean, you brought up the purple people eaters. I can only imagine what the fearsome foursome if Merlin Olsen and Lamar Lundy and deacon Jones still around. I know Rosie Greer is. But what would they say? Yeah. Yeah. Deacon would've there would have been. No question about it. But you know, you brought up a good point. Look give it three defensive touchdowns scored. Okay. That exemplifies what we aren't today's football. The offense is our head of the defense is right now, and we are pumping things up with as you mentioned changes for making sure the emphasis is on offense, which often happens when you have stagnating, you know, when when when the when the when the ratings seem to stagnate when the discussion last year was less about football more about off-field or demonstrations or things of that nature. Lis having to send off the president of the United States, for God's sakes. All those things went into this year. We haven't had that in the play has been sterling in in. This offense has been quite exciting. But defenses are not going to be judged now on whether or not they stone people at the line of scrimmage, right? They're not going to be judged on. What is going up pinpoint you're going to be judged on whether or not they can make winning play at the course of a ballgame that take possessions away from the opposite team. They give extra possessions that their team, and they pick up the ball and score defense or you're off into the private position to score after taking the ball away. Tampa Bay's it is pretty darn exciting on offense, which Sayer an absolute watch play. They are it doesn't matter. Whether it's Patrick or James to now both of them like like in the college. The college coaches like to say when they throw the ball, you go wanted the band is gonna play you just hoping. Yours because they can throw it to their team or the other team at big plays going to resolve. But they put up over five hundred yards two weeks ago in a game and scored three point. Okay. Why they turned it over to many times they went into their game. This weekend's a giant minus nineteen in turnover margin. I struggled even say minus nineteen they came out of the giants game, minus twenty three. Okay. With all those offers of weapons to Sean Jackson, Mike Gavin. Whether it's Winston are Fitzpatrick OJ Howard, a speech an offensive line. They turn it over so many times, they can't keep themselves games. And they've made a late Russia the giant, but they took away too many possessions for themselves. That's what defenses they're trying to do from Brandon grabbing the Super Bowl knocking it out of Brady's hands. Wait and give the creepy. Philadelphia's Barger eight points making it onto England to what we saw last night with the three defensive touchdowns to help tilt the balance of the ball game for the Rams that's defensive two thousand eighteen football. Charles Davis, our guest, he's with the NFL network and FOX he's got Seattle and Carolina this week in uptown, Charlotte. That's a huge game with a lot of a wildcard reprecussions. And to your point on the way defense has changed Charles. I always looked at points allow that was my barometer. If you look at the. Top three teams right now for points allowed Baltimore at one eighty one followed by the Tennessee titans who come in at one seventy eight I should say one eighty nine and then Dallas at one ninety those three teams are all five and five and yet they are the best when it comes to points allowed. It is kind of amazing. It just tells us that. The defense is always going to be important, but it's a different type of defense now because if you can't convert on your end, if you're not put up the offense aside, you're not gonna get out of there. And with very many twenty two seventeen games, not very many seventeen fourteen games. It's just not going to work in today's NFL talented, the two skills the rules are pumped up in their favor. And I don't mean it in a bad way. We're not what we say that air air by God. Yeah. Entertainment. Tv ratings are important. Do you remember when Mel blunt, which is beating the heck out receivers? When he was six four two hundred twenty five pounds playing corner, and they just couldn't get downfield. And they ended up putting into bumper rule. Five yards after five let him go in order to increase the passing game you member at the AFC title game. I think it was it was New England is absolutely bugged. The receivers for the colts. As the GM Colton what you would do for your team, you would complain and it became an emphasis on getting their hands off up. So they could open up passing lanes again. I know New England fans didn't like it at all. But if you were if roles were reversed you would want your GM to fight for your team. Right. That's kind of how it works. Well, these these are the types of things people are looking for. And that's why these receivers are doing their thing. Added the helmet rule, right in editing. The emphasis a big. Shoulders about leading with your head, which is the right thing and safety. Have you watched safeties play NFL football? Now, they take one extra step before they launch don't they? They gathered themselves nowadays receivers are running with more impunity in the middle of the field that at any time that I could recognize in the NFL because before you ran through the middle of the field at your own peril. Didn't you? Now, you run through the middle of you think to yourself. Well, if he takes that big shot at me at least it's going to be a penalty. So it's a whole different mentality. The whole different mindset which opened things up for offense. That's why defense is have to. I'm not gonna say pick your spot if they're plays Eric they've got to go get the football. They've got to knock it free. They gotta take away possession. If you do that. Then you're successful defensive football team, especially if you get an offense, it'll convert near no question, the Bednarik's, the niche keys, the Butkus, the Tatum's the Ehlers Taylor's. They wouldn't they. Wouldn't play today because they don't have suspensions. Somewhere working down at this game just checked Hoya. So whatever section of happened there in right now. They'll even Chuck and Ray alone right now, those two they just do a forearm. If somebody said, you've got to be kidding me. Knock him on his way out that route walks tippy run that route again. Nowadays, they'd have to either adapt. Whereas you said they just be suspended heavily Charles the Minnesota Vikings take on Green Bay Sunday night. That's another monster game. When it comes to, you know, trying to keep some playoff momentum alive for both teams the Vikings last week in Chicago they saw the improving bears. We're now seven and three akiem Hicks is he he's a space heater down low who can wreak havoc in Khalil Mack. I mean has there been a trade that you can remember recently in the NFL Charles literally had the impact the MAC deals had on the Chicago Bears when they got it from Oakland. It's hard to think of instant incident back to members first Indians green back on that first half. He just came all came, you know, showed up get fitted for uniform and absolutely reek havoc. And it was already a good bears defense. That's one thing to keep in mind. That bears defense is already very good had been for the last few years. Now, you're talking about taking it to another level because he opens things up for guys like Leonard Floyd. He allows team Hicks baby. Get a few more one on one opportunity themselves instead of having to take on double teams all the time. That's what an elite player like like. Khalil Mack does for you. At in the new head coach Nagy new office quarter Helfferich who were brought in to do. What could make sure Mitchell Trubisky developed an NFL quarterback? He didn't play his best game on Sunday night. But he's played awfully well lately. And that's what's happening that offense is pumped up. It brought into new receivers. Jordan Howard, three Cohen handle the running game, you got entirely new team that you're dealing with Minnesota. Look that's a good football team that now is getting challenged each and every week and trying to figure out how to ring that bell on offense because we know digs. We know feeling. I just haven't seen Treadwell developed at the rate you would expect from number one. No and the Vikings now. Winning the NFC north is not impossible, but it's an uphill climb. So you have to start looking at at the wildcard situation cheryl's in the game. You're gonna do Seahawks Panthers. Both those teams basically in the same boat as Minnesota the NFC east. Dallas looks like the team that may may be able to win it. But you know, the Cowboys are Washington have wildcard ideas. I'm sure Philadelphia hasn't given up quite yet..

What are you gonna do for thanksgiving, staying home? Are you gonna be out on the highways in the sky on a crowded jet flying somewhere? Aaa says this might be the busiest thanksgiving in recent memory hammer, recent memory of the talking about like two three five five to ten years. Okay. Okay. It's going to be busy. But it always is right. Would hasn't been busy? I mean, tell me when MSP on tomorrow night Wednesday has not been busy actually, you'll probably see TD reports there tomorrow morning. I bet. Yup. That's the cliche. Live shots. I do want to let everybody out there who can hear my voice. No that whatever you're going to do. Have fun. I mean, it's a holiday you're going to get together with family and friends, and that's what it's all about half an ABI smart about it. That's right. Don't make bad choices. Tomorrow is blackout Wednesday. I was at a news conference today for CCS news. Daytime news reporting job in Saint Paul Minnesota department of safety put that one on the emphasis was and they had they had a lot of police officers and state troopers. From around the state of Minnesota there. They brought out an officer from big lake who had lost his mom and her boyfriend because of a drunk driver in basically, the the whole gist of the news conference was don't make bad choices. And what you're going to see tomorrow on blackout Wednesday is a lot of people come back into town. Some of them college kids and they bench drink and the DWI arrests spike way up on blackout Wednesday as opposed to a normal period of time in that same span, you'll see signs of thirty five W ninety four whichever highway. You're on just saying, you know, just watch what you do and don't be victims DWI. Yeah. And they're gonna crack down as well. They should now. Have you ever been out on blackout Wednesday? I haven't I will be out tomorrow because I'll be at the timber wolves game. And then I'll be in here. After the game. And I'll be on the highways right around midnight. It's benefit years from Miki's 'cause I used to work mornings before started doing this shift. And of course, you know, when you get before clock in the morning, there's no point of really going out. But the wolves game I go across the bar. You're getting up at four or getting in it for four wanted to clarify that. Yes. For up three o'clock. Okay. But the other times, you know, the wolves get done I go down to like glitz or one of the other local bars packed with people to celebrate. Because they don't have to work tomorrow. Yeah. Not only do they not have to work. They know that their main agenda is sitting on the couch watching a tripleheader of football. Now, we have three scoops of the NFL on thanksgiving, by the way. That's the only Thursday. I think the NFL should play on thanksgiving. I think they need to tweak then I'll get into a little bit there. But you're right. You get your, you know, you just party hard the night before you wake up next day. You've maybe a little hung over. You have your Turkey. You have your stuffing you watch football. Yeah. It it's it's not a bad deal. Just make good choices. If you're gonna party on blackout Wednesday and drink a lot, then take an Uber or lift home, take a cab, give your keys to somebody else. That's really there are no excuses in this. It's it's a preventable thing. I got a buddy day that lives down to Houston. He puts us be bluntly one time 'cause very blunt with his talking as you. Well know, he said with Uber lifter. So there's no reason to drive will you drinking? I mean, whatever cost taking over as we lot cheaper than unified and being in jail for night. Yes. And he's absolutely right on that. I spoke to one of the officers that the news conference today from Brooklyn center, and he says you're talking tens of thousands of dollars potentially. If you get a DWI in court costs and fees. Not to mention what may happen in your career. You get the the the the white license plate with the w in front of it the whiskey plates. Yeah. Yeah. And the problem I have is that they think they haven't had too much to drink. They think like, you know, a couple here there, I'm fine to drive because I can handle it better than some people in some cases, the right to appoint. But Sinn time why eating chance in it. Reason there's no reason to like like when I go out like I'll have one of them driving. I'll stop there maybe tube. That's absolutely the maximum. I won't regain more than if I'm driving and I rarely drink and drive anymore. Not that I ever did. But. You know, I'm trying to say I get so I'm sure downtown Minneapolis tomorrow. We'll be festive and Saint Paul to the wild have again going on Toronto's. Well, that's right. We have the senators and the wild at the XL energy center, the nuggets and the timber wolves at target center. So both of the twin towns, we'll have a lot going on something for everybody. If you want to sample and some sports before your night of celebration. That's right. And of course, the wild have their annual day after thanksgiving game against Winnipeg. And that's Friday, three o'clock start the prep bowl goes on Friday and Saturday at US Bank stadium will have the six title game right here on WCTC. Oh, Steve E and myself with the call it'll be lakeville north and Eden. Prairie. The eagles have won eleven state titles. How about that? Can they make it a dozen lakeville north pretty good? And of course, Sunday night. At US Bank stadium. The Green Bay Packers. Take on the Minnesota. Vikings two teams badly in need of a win in the NFC north. You look at the standings right now. Chicago's in control. Now the bears. Don't have it wrapped up. But they are in control Chicago Seven and three Minnesota five four and one Green Bay four five in one. But remember Chicago plays Detroit in downtown Motown on Thanksgiving Day, the NFL did them no favours by flexing the game with the Vikings and then making them play on Thanksgiving Day. And I read an article they were the debating whether or not the Trubisky out for the game on Thursday because he's got a bum shoulder. I think. Well, I'll tell you what if the lions win, and they could because they are decent home team. And let's face. Thanksgiving Day is the Super Bowl because they haven't been to the Super Bowl in my lifetime. They've never been never been. They've won. I think one playoff game since the Bobby lane era. Gives dallas. Yeah. Well, and the lions have a home win against New England. They beat Carolina last week. So the Packers Vikings, obviously are hoping Detroit can spring the upset and that could open the door to Minnesota Green Bay getting back into the chase for you may have mentioned earlier I was on the phone, but basically greeted Minnesota's cock? The fact the playoff game where whoever loses props can looking in. I would agree especially the Packers. If they lose they'll draft Owens six on the road. I mean, when they leave Wisconsin bad things happen. They have not been able to win away from Lambeau, and you could make a case they should have won against the LA Rams at the Coliseum there in the running. They let one get away in Foxborough on a Sunday night. They let one get away against your Seahawks last Thursday night. But what it coulda shoulda Green Bay's got flaws. But I think the Vikings have a few flaws to this game could be another tie. Have we ever had two teams tied twice in a year? You're going for the time. I'm predicting a tie. I don't think it's gonna happen. I was gonna win by don't think you'll see a tie. I'll be very shocked at that happens in. Oh. By the way, last weekend was Minnesota versus Illinois. We had northwestern knocking off the Minnesota gophers Chicago Blackhawks knocking off the Minnesota wild the Chicago Bears defeating the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. It's Minnesota versus Wisconsin the border battle because the gophers take on the badger set here to you, the well will not listen hockey, Wisconsin that's impossible because we don't have a team, and they can't play the Milwaukee admirals right now, the cannot okay? So when it comes to the NHL, Minnesota has Wisconsin beat do they get their own border battle of Winnipeg and the WNBA. Yes, and MLS. Yes. The other sports. No, not at all, by the way, gophers badgers, your thoughts on that one hammer because the gophers haven't won in Madison since one thousand nine hundred four that's when Bill Clinton. Was the president. There was no such thing as the internet back then. That's a long time. And they haven't beaten Wisconsin since two thousand three that was in Minneapolis, fourteenth, straight losses. And I don't see that streak ending this year at all. I mean, I know the badgers not the juggernaut they were last year, and I use the term very loosely because it seemed like that good defense, but he's very spotty offense and hundred Brooks not look spectacular from what I've seen this year. Wisconsin has number. I haven't seen anti for the gophers the tells me, they can go in Wisconsin. And come back with the axe. I just don't see it happening. No, the gophers just can't get any traction in the PJ Fleck era flexible buildings roster. And he told me he told people I've talked to that, you know, your Tuesday worse than your one. And it looks like that's the case. So far. And so I just I don't expect a lot going to the man I, but I don't like that kind of approach where you set the bar so low I don't like the approach either. Especially when you were bolting when you took over. Well there were nine win team. They were only the third time in the history of Minnesota football. So look I next year PJ flex better. Have this thing going in another direction? I thought seven wins this year for the gophers turns is more optimistic than most people because they ended up with I think five wins right now. And it might facial six if they if they go into Madison and win and then can win a ballgame. I would call it a pretty good year. That's probably not going to happen. I'm going to sell for just being competitive medicine this. We know you just got to get a win..

And you know, I can only go off of what I've been told from sue. You know when she was here when when the Sonics where here and it was just, it It was. was a different vibe, you know, having both teams and and you know, a sports city really embracing both men's and women's basketball. And I think we deserve to have this on expect, you know, that's the only other sport that we're missing. Really, you know, depreciation for the men's and the women's game, nobody appreciates the women's game like you. What is it about the women's game that you respect and appreciate some star really fall in love with a fundamental that game and. Some of the stuff that I see the one that's players do obviously can't lettuces. I'm like, we have, but they make today with the fundamentals and just the skill. You know, see a lot of players, and I lied that'll have closer amount of skill that she has. You know, shoot a fatal ways juggle either make either pass, either hand can go either way right or left and shoot a jump shot and as rare to find now, especially with younger kids coming up. So you know, I look at the fundamentals that game, and it makes me wanna go shopping my twos and my skills for the game because that's what is about, you know, I think that's what allows everyone to play just the fundamentals and obviously let us is as cools entertaining, but the court a game konczal nine and how to do the basic things they do at the best when you hear that, what do you think. Obviously, you know, appreciate. Support from someone of his caliber. But you know, I think it's, I think it's true. You know, I think the way that. We have to really focus in on on fundamentals. She's fundamentals and skills is really important because that's what's going to separate us and and make someone that much better than than another player because we don't have the athleticism. We can't be doing, you know, crazy dunks, anything like that, but we can be skilled in as much as we can gerbil shooting. And just trying to to grow the game that way, you know, they're growing the game one way. We're going to game in a different direction. No, no ways wrong. He knows how much he respects the fundamental, not what have you taken from his game that you using your own. Probably probably a lot. I think you know, just just watching him watching his games watching film on him. The kinda the calming presence that he has when he plays is huge. You know, you know if he's going to pull up and hit a jumper from thirty five feet out, or he's gonna go pass somebody with his crossover, but trying to to just like that and and bringing it to the WNBA. And I think you know a lot of people have have put the comparison between our two games and hopefully it's it's putting more is on us. You know, people who watch the NBA will now hopefully tune into the WNBA to see if the comparison is actually true. You quite literally looking shoes. I mean you wear shoes employees. What should it? Tell me about your relationship. Thing, or is that like a friendship thing? Or you just like how they look. All of the about. I think ever since I, I was probably in college.

"Dude? Good. Yeah. I I wanted to say that regarding baseball. I this is I'm not going to say Chevy vigil seventy my last point in the season is too long. We know that. And the games aren't necessary so much about being too long. So pacing of the games. You know, the games we actually shorter many many years ago because you didn't have guy stepping out of the box and they've gotten rid of that. But now we have replaced so one thing, you know, compensates for another and we're back to where we started as far as that. But I was saying to the gentleman screener there that I, you know, I I remember being home schooling and watching the World Series game during the day back when they had I saw Bob Gibson an amazing year when they were playing, and he was like, you know, incredible that if they could at least one day weekday gave I know it probably will never happen, but people have stacked staggered schedules. People don't all work at the same time and people have electric devices. Anyway, how cool might be might be full space. But at least give it a try at least one day game. Like they had the World Series back in the day you weekday day game. You know, there's just something cool about the gentle. Pace of of the daytime and having a World Series game t taking what say you. What do you think about that? I know you you can't relate to that. You have no personal experience with that. But what do you think about that? Unofficial old man territory. Now the earlier you put the game the better for me as far as I'm concerned. It's LeBron James playing at ten thirty eastern time is going to be the death of me. I already know right now. I've watched the first quarter of way too many Lakers preseason games already. And I'm like, oh my goodness. 'cause I get up at five thirty in the morning during the week. Plus, I have two young kids. So. The earlier the better like these eight o'clock say aids too late too late for me. My goodness Zarzis gains at six. Yes. I wouldn't be against that. No, no, no, no way. No. How all right. I said there was an image that I find very intriguing and this is the image. Kevin durant? In a Seattle Sonics jersey. Why is this intriguing to me well for a couple of reasons? Number one the socks. Everybody by now knows the story of how left and how heartbroken Seattle was. And it really feels like the momentum is building backup to get Seattle. A team. You know, I I noticed it. During the WNBA playoffs, actually. Was I really enjoyed some of what I saw from the WNBA playoffs this year in Seattle just seeing that crowd route on that team with similar color schemes. I was like they gotta bring the Sonics back. They gotta bring the Sonics back because they love basketball there. It's a great basketball town, and there's something about the Sonics uniform and the apparel that that speaks to people, you know. So like if another team where to play in Seattle, I promise you the merchandising sales would be through the roof not just for the local market. But I think nationally like the Sonics stuff would be a cool thing to to be sport. And and wearing so the first thing about that image. That is intriguing to me is just the prospect of of bringing a team back to Seattle. And how does that happen? Well, you could expand the NBA. I don't think that's such a great idea. I think there are enough bad teams in the NBA right now where you don't need to expand. So what's the next option? You move a team to Seattle well which team then should move to Seattle eight five five two one two four two two seven. You can give your thoughts. If you want. I identified the team I would move to Seattle now there are some bad teams. But some of those teams have a history or you just associate them with the NBA Phoenix and Sacramento, for instance, because maybe that's just my, you know, formative years but seeing that that kings team that almost won a championship. There's a certain connection I have to the Sacramento Kings. It's also all they got I was joking with the guys before. But I didn't even believe Sacramento was a real place till I saw it on a highway sign. The only connection I had to Sacramento was the kings the sons there's we know what? Having the dantonio San's before that Charles Barkley, Kevin Johnson. And the like so just because it teams bad doesn't mean it should move. Memphis is a legitimate candidate. I would say to relocate. I was going to say the pelicans since they've already done in one sense. They've had a lot of economic woes. So they could potentially be a team and the attendance is awful New Orleans. One hundred percent that would be one of the if I'm looking at the top three teams. The pelicans would be one of them the grizzlies would be another one. The only reason I have a sauce for the grizzlies one time. I was I was at the I think it was a Super Bowl in Dallas. And I was in the car back to the airport. And there was this older couple from Memphis and the kind of couple that would strike me so much not to be NBA fans not to be stereotypical. But this older couple did not strike me as NBA fans and this guy loved the grizzly so much you went to every game. And he he spoke so positively of the grizzlies it left a soft spot in my heart for for Memphis grizzlies, for some reason, even though I don't care about them at all. That is. So like the two teams, I think that would be easily acceptable, Memphis and the pelicans. But the team I would pick Charlotte. That's the team. I would move my best friend lives in that area. I've been down there before they don't care about the NBA in that area there. So obsessed with college. I don't get it. But it is. I mean, I get it. Because of all the college teams that are there. Of course, there's twenty five colleges within a twenty mile span. And some of them are Duke and North Carolina. Right. But the they don't care. They don't care. They're about the NBA all and I I guess I could see New Orleans being a market that cares about the NBA. Atlanta. Does have great attendance. I can see that being a market the cares about the NBA. I I would hope maybe there's potential for Memphis. And remember we're not that far removed from Memphis being habitually in the playoffs. To me, Charlotte's the one they're just nothing except move. That team is not like anybody's gonna go. Oh, we can't watch Kemba Walker anymore. You're not stealing a young star in the prime. Like if you move newer. I mean, Anthony Davis and gonna be there long anyway. But Anthony Davis who moved at that this time. Memphis is at least had some success there to me, it's Charlotte. They've had no success. People. Don't care. There's nothing. Interesting about him. In fact, if you're telling me right now, which team is least interesting in the entire NBA. I would probably say Charlotte, I would probably say Charlotte because I could find something about the even the Sacramento Kings. I watched them play the Lakers the other night like Darren FOX, look kind of good like all right? Maybe there's a couple of young guys. I would watch grizzlies are pretty low on the totem pole. Right now. That's for sure about teams, I would watch. And then other than that. The pistons. You can't move the pistons though, right? I mean, you can't move the pistons considering they're the Detroit frigging pistons. What about Orlando Orlando is another one? That's that's reasonable. But I don't know. I think it's Charlotte. I if you're telling me which team should move. I I think it Charlotte just from lack of history a lack of of interest a lack of star power and a of lack of potential interest. So right here right now, I say move the Charlotte Hornets to Seattle what say you should an NBA team moved to Seattle in which NBA team. Should it? Be eight five five two one two four two two seven. Then there's the other aspect of that image that I find interesting, and that's Kevin Durant in a different uniform. I. I don't know why it's hitting me this morning. But it makes me feel like he's going to leave Golden State. There's no reality to it. There's no reason for that just the visual combined with everything else. Kevin durant? Obviously, not fully content with his decision to go to Golden State. Right. Every he keeps firing back at people over everything else when he's really discussing his move to the warriors and the criticism he justly received for he had every right to go there. I'm not saying. He shouldn't have gone there. If that's what he wanted to do. But bro, you went to a seventy three win team that just beat you in the playoffs. Then the facts, that's what happened. So for people to call it a week move totally justified for people to be upset about him stacking, the warriors totally justified. So he's not comfortable with it clearly not fully comfortable with that. And he's got his championships. Now, like if that was the reason he's already got two of them, very likely could get three this year. For his career. I think the best move is for him to go somewhere else and not even win a championship necessarily there. But elevate that team to contending status if he were to get the next team he goes to to the level that Oklahoma City was at when he left that would be a huge victory for him. I think so seeing Kevin Durant in that uniform in that Sonics jersey, just maybe think maybe he really is gonna leave because he also has left that door open more than one would think you would if you were in his position on that team. I was just going to say in terms of Seattle with the NBA. I think it's definitely happening because they're already moving close to getting the NHL team. Now, I think they'll have a big part of getting the NBA team back as well. Because on Tuesday, the NHL executive board voted ninth and nothing to to submit to a proposed to bring a franchise back to Seattle. Now, the final vote comes in early December. So the NHL is going to be back in Seattle. So I think that will even further pave the way now for the NBA team the comeback soon to you think one of the teams should move to Seattle. You agree with me that it should be the Hornets. And are we actually, you know, this is going to be Kevin Durant? Final urine golden say something about this image hit me on on multiple levels. I'm just looking at Kevin Durant in that Sonics jersey eight five five two one two four two two seven is the phone number.
