"To fight against the devil that was going. What are you? So, um. I've been practicing this, but I don't know if that means that I'm gonna get through it, so. Will you let me try? And then you can talk. If you still want it, I'm gonna die. It's happening right now. I'm not gonna get carried. I'm not gonna come home, man. My friend. A good friend. She just. She just died, and she had no one around her, but us. No family. No friends. Just us. And. We were enough. And I saw that. And that got me thinking, like, Spence. They're enough for me, too. That's what I realized. And when my top comes. And it's coming. Like I said. I'll be surrounded by people who love me. Though I am. Without any judgment or asterisks or any of that awful shit that you put on me, and you know I get it. It's how you erase and these beliefs you hold on to. I

No One Can Possibly Be Excited for the President's Cup
"Well, like I'll sell it. I'll sell it for pennies on the dollar, you know, outside the gate, good night. That's my daughter. She's just, she doesn't know what to do about the world of golf. Got context today, by the way, first time at a glasses. Volleyball got hit in the face with glasses, had to switch to context. Anyway, that's sitting there. Yeah, tough adjustment. I'm sitting there and I have this corporate ten or whatever. I'm like, dude, I wasn't live versus PGA Tour for the president's cup. Call it the freaking traders cup. Call it whatever the hell you want to call it. Yes. Yeah, streaming on Pornhub, platinum subscription. I don't give a shit what happens like people are going to tune into this thing like you've never even seen or heard in your entire life. Right. It's going to be tenfold of what it is right now. And I don't even want to discount how good the players are for the international team that are going to end up making it that never would before because they're a lot better than you and I are. However, it's not the same. And then the PGA Tour teams watered down too because they're missing some of their best guys. Right. So if you're listening to this and you're really intrigued about watching the president's cup, you're a free con serial killer. You go around, stocking people, where's the body? Let me know that type of situation. That's basically what's happened. There's no way anyone's excited to watch this. No. And I don't even know what it is. I don't even know what month to sit, I don't know. I only know where it is. That's the thing. I have not kept up with it at all. I don't care. And the problem is, I should care because I have friends. In it, and I don't know where it is. Sam Burns plant. Sam's plan. Yeah. And I have no idea where it is, when it is, no idea. I know that Sam won't even see the 13th pole. He won't even see it. No, like, whoever he's playing doesn't matter. He's like, he's a piece of two shot advantage every time he plays. And speaking of, like, that's a thing. Yeah, I don't even know the captains are. I believe it's Davis love. Is that correct? Is the captain of the stateless love in Trevor implement and I feel horrible because Trevor Owens a nice guy. Trevor Spence, he lost his he lost his best guys. I guess he gets Hideki like, can you clone a decade? Like, I don't know, like who cloned the first sheep. It was at in Scotland, go over to that guy, clone Hideki 11 times before this thing starts, and maybe we'll have ourselves a freaking golf tournament. Well, yeah, maybe. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe. No, I said maybe credit to myself for saying maybe. Maybe we would. 11 a decades might have a chance. Possibly, I don't know. With the current team, absolutely 0%, no chance at all. I don't know what the money line is on the United States in that one, but man. It's gotta be it's gotta be minus it's gotta be -900. I'm gonna look. You spend a million put a million on it to make a hundred grand. Like, come on. It's worth it though, 'cause it's a lock. I made that up. Let's see what it really is. It's worth it. It's a lock. But anyway, I mean, that's one of the things though. The golf golf needs this shit to be over with. This squabble. Minded 500. USA's -500. That's it. Oh my God. That's pretty bad. That's pretty bad, honestly, though, because they give you fluff. Like the internationals are plus that moon 50. Match play is a little bit of a carnage shell, like you know that. You can play best fall on both players can be 6 under and you can lose to two guys that shoot 74, but they best fall 7 under, right? However, -500 seems like

THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"spence" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"My God, Errol Spence did not disappoint. Wow. Teddy, I don't think he could have looked better. I mean, he had that one instance, and I have a million questions for you about the malt piece, the mop piece fell off. I think in the 6 round. And he looked down. I mean, it was all his own fault. He looked down, waited for the ref to stop at the ref didn't stop it, and who got his cracked him. And had him hurt had him hurt against the robes really hurt. I probably don't sort I've ever seen Spence, but you'll correct me if I'm wrong. And of course, spends behaved like a champion came back strong. I mean, the pressure he put on for me was just incredible. He was relentless and the damage to the eye and it was another example of teddy of a busted eye busted orbital who got refuses to quit. I couldn't have been worse. It was closed shot. The doctor kept asking him, you could tell when a doctor asked the fighter like, can you see as soon as the fighter says, no, he knows the fight's over. So it's an easy way to get out if you want. Look, if you can't see, you can't see, but we all know that if you say you can't see the fight's over. And the guys like Arturo Gotti type guys, ugas. In a way, they'll tell you they can see it both eyes are closed. But he kept going, turns out he has a badly damaged orbital bone broken a little bit of bone and, you know, he feels full of gas, but my God, aryl Spence looks great. So I've got a couple of things. So I'm dying here thoughts on the fight, but also dying here what you think Spence and Crawford and giving spences that recent performed the performance from Saturday. Also, when that multipiece came out, part of me is like, it's the fight, the most peace themselves. The ref should just say, okay, you lost your mouthpiece at the end of the round. We can get it back. But this like waiting until there's a break in the action, you know, you could tell Spence didn't clear on that and he got cracked and it almost cost him. But I want to talk to you about that most piece rule as well. So first off, what did you think of the fight? I'll just touch on one thing real quick that you just said, I know another guy that I could be closed both eyes could be close. He's still going to sell you. The late caller basilio Hall of Famer, former welterweight champion, has a win over sugar Mary Robinson. He lost him too. Obviously, everybody who beat sugar away Robinson. They lost in a rematch. That's one of the things that made Robinson so so special, so great. But to your point, yeah, there's a few guys that that's the choice they make that's the cold they live by. But as far as this fight, we call it, we want it. If you went to your bed with my boogie and go to the window and collect baby because we don't get them all, right? But I remember almost verbatim saying, hey, he's a counter puncher styles make fights, you know, causes a catapult tree. He's not a real busy guy. He got out work by Pacquiao, but he landed on the South Pole killers. The hard right hands against Pacquiao, enough to win that fight, but it was close. I felt that fight was close. Again, he got out of work play pack out. And I said it and I said it in classically. He is not out working Spence. I tell you right now. His only chance to win is to knock him out. To hurt him. Actually, that was the words. He said, and he did hurt him. You know, different circumstances led to it. But look, it don't matter. At the end of the day, he heard him. And but I also said that I felt had a good enough trend to survive anything. If he got to that place, and he did get to that place, I thought he could survive it. I also thought it was defense was good enough that he's not going to get tagged all night long. And I just felt that was he had to style to really counter the counterpoints and I don't be kind of literally. I mean, to kind of that style where you can not be an effective catapult you can if there's nothing to counter. And when a guy's got a good job and he uses it like see, I said this a long time ago before it was as popular to say where expense is not just an aggressive guy. He's a world rounded fundamentally technically solid fighting. He's an opiate. He's not just a secret destroying missile. He is a guy that, as I say, is an all around good boxer. And he uses a draft. That's why Mike Garcia. I know he was smaller, but he couldn't counterparts because he doesn't allow Spencer's allow you to counter punch because when a guy uses jamp at the right range at the right distance, effectively, you can't count them. There's nothing to counter. He wants you to reach like Pacquiao did a little bit. You know, and that goes not as fast as it used to be. So he got caught. But he used to get away with that backyard used to run red lights and get away because he had spectacular speech. Excuse me. He was like a Ferrari one of the red light. No cop was going to catch him. You.

"This week's picks brought to you by our friends over at FanDuel and I am zeroing in this week on the big one. The welterweight unification fight between Errol Spence Jr. and your Danish ugas. Now, I would love to tell you to bet on ugas. He is a very talented fighter. He has got good odds plus four ten, according to FanDuel and he's going up against a guy that's coming off a long layoff and another serious injury. This time the eye with aero Spence. But aerospike is overcome a lot in his career. He overcame a nasty car crash to beat Danny Garcia back in 2020. And everything I'm hearing out of Spence's camp is that it has been excellent that he's ready for this fight. At Errol Spence at his best, is just better than your Danish uga. So I am taking arrow Spence -6 50 to win. I think it's a safe bet because I think Spence is the better fighter. I'm taking Spence though to win by decision, a little bit better odds on this one. He's minus one 40 to win by decision. Spence, he hasn't picked up a knockout in several years. He has become to me a little bit more of a careful fighter over the last few years as his level of competition has significantly improved. I think out boxes your data and I think he wins by decision. Those are my picks, brought to you by FanDuel. That's it for this week's episode my thanks to Keith idec and Errol Spence for joining the show.

"Spence is here unified a 147 pound champion on Saturday. He will attempt to add one more piece of the welterweight crown to his portfolio. He takes on your Danish ugas down at cowboy stadium in Arlington, Texas. That's a fight that you can watch exclusively in the U.S. on showtime pay per view and Errol joins me now on the show. Sarah, when you're kind of going through another significant injury, is there any part of you that's like, man, why me? Like, why me, why again, why now just kind of all the bullshit that goes with it? No, definitely not. You know, like I told everybody, you know, I think, you know, perspective if I enjoy accidents or anything like that, you know what I'm saying? Why me? You know, I can also say, you know, why me that, you know, I'm winning all these world titles and, you know, and things like that and all these blessings coming towards me. So I feel like in life, you know, you know, good and good and bad things happen to you. You know it's how you say you have and you know, I feel like, you know, I had no great, you know, I got a lot of great people behind me who gave me confirmation that, you know, doing the right things and it's all about learning and getting better. How concerned were you when you heard the diagnosis that it could be career ending? I look the same, but you know, I wouldn't really too much worried about it because I said it would detach. So, you know, they said, you know, they injury is career and then but you know, mine wasn't fully just gone. After I, you know, it was just, it was slightly detached. Now all the way. So, you know, they basically just put it back up..

"He feels like he's an even better fighter than the one that beats Sean Porter and what was also one of the fights of the year in 2019 was a dogfight for sure. So he says he's going to be better than the guy who fought Sean Porter. And while he better be because the guy he's fighting, a lot of people think beach on Porter. And that was and that wasn't the Sean Porter that got knocked out by Terrence Crawford. And I don't think he was a diminished version of Sean Porter all that much when he fought Crawford, but he was more in his physical prime, and he was a world champion when he fought your Dennis ugas. A lot of people think won the fight. Spence and his people are in no way underestimating ugas. I mean, anyone who would do that at this point, coming off the win over Pacquiao and the fact that he's you could argue undefeated as a welterweight since 2016 because his only loss is to Sean Porter, they know they're in for a real fight, but Errol Spence, if he's anything resembling what he was before, and there's no reason to believe that he's not. He should beat your Dennis you guys. And then maybe, who knows, maybe we'll get the fight we've wanted for the last three years, right? Yeah, look, I like Spence in this fight too for a lot of the reasons that you said from talking to him and from talking to people around him the last couple of months, you know, they talk about how after the car accident, there were certain things he couldn't do physically. After the eye surgery, he had to rest and recover from that, but while he couldn't spar right away, he was doing stuff. Like he was in the gym. He was working out. It wasn't like he had to take an extended period of time off after that eye surgery. So they believe and Spence believes he's going to be sharp going into this fight from talking to Spence. It doesn't sound like there's a confidence issue when it comes to like wanting to protect that eye a little bit more. Like he just seems like he's ready to go. And he's as close to full strength as he's going to be. And if he is, he's just better than ugas. Not to say who got his bad, but I think Spence at the top of his game is better than ugas at the top of his game. He's going to have physical tools in his favor. More of a counter punch or at least he has been in a lot of his fights. I just, this is one of those fights where I can see Spence, whether it's because of the eye or not, not going for the knockout in it, but kind of cruising to like one of those 8 four 9 three type of decisions. I think he's fully capable of with his skill set. So I like Spence in that way in this fight. Yeah, I could see it..

"There is a piece in the wall street journal by the president of regna. Repoed publishing full disclosure. They are the publishers of many of my books and all of my books in the rational bible series and i have appreciated their worked tremendously. Tom spence is. The president is piece in the wall. Street journal is about banned books. So tom first of all of course. Welcome to the show. Thanks dennis happy to be here. I'll bet are and i'm happy that you are. What is there. Every year is that there's a banned books week or something. What is it called. Yes it banned books week. It's a week long promotion in the book. Trade that sponsored by the american library association the american booksellers association and several other organizations. It's the last week of september so begins. It begins next week. And it's a way to promote books that have been ostensibly banned. The the joke of it is that the books that are promoted year after year have not been banned in any meaningful sense and now the books that are in some real sense. Being banned are studiously ignored by ban. Books week policy in the book but hypocrisies two-mile a term. It's orwellian the books that are banned are not mentioned during banned books weeks and books that our peripheral band give me an example of what they say is banned so so yeah i mean obviously it depends on how you define your terms so if i if i describe a book if i tell you that a book has been banned. What does that mean to you. What's your first thought that it is no longer available to the public right. I think that's a reasonable definition. So if i'm living in soviet union in the you know nineteen eighty five. And i want to buy the gulag archipelago. Am i gonna find it kid. It's been banned right the government or somebody with authority to the power to do. It has made that book unavailable.

"So I think during the pandemic. we had a lot of level playing field because everybody's working from homeless people start to get back into the office. Then i think you have some different challenges to because depending on where the leadership of the organization is located. It's gonna create some challenges. I think really what this does from a security standpoint right is that you're gonna have very unpredictable traffic patterns. Who's in who's out in so the mobile. We haven't very mobile because everyone's just at home. Now you're going to have the mobility as well right and so everything that we've been talking about today around zero trust and putting those six you know good security principles into practice. That's going to be even more important right when everybody had it gets back to whatever that new normal is owned a look like you know and then and then we going to have to learn from each other right of the best practices of what's working and what's not working the is going to have to get a lot smarter and figuring out what your patterns are if you're if you're both remote and mobile all the time. Yeah well that that can help. When i think about like what's going on in commercial right in enterprise everyone talks about like cloud i the next wave is to be more around kind of the ai. First rate ai out. Oh i do a ops. And if i can anticipate when people are going to be there i might reconfigure things a little bit so they can work better and and in depending depending on how things turn out. You might have to do your best to limit some of the human contact rate. And so what can i. How can i use technology do that. There's lots of different ideas and options for that as well and whatever we can do to help with that We wanna we wanna be there right because one person's company security breaches another one's If we can all kind of come together in encourage that whole zero chess adoption in the industry at large can make a lot of progress towards a more secure future.

By the by the little quote that they put out so Maybe you wanna pull it up in the pre pro so you can reduce significant quotes that url gave discussing. You know the fact that he's grateful that he you know he caught. The i injury in time it threatened his career and obviously shut out to michael carpenter who published a story today at two pm eastern on espn on espn. You need the link up that got the story show. I'm sure i'm sure. I mean it's a it's a it's a. It's not so long story but Let me see if i can pull up just two coats. Yeah says. I'm grateful that i caught it. It's career ending injury for a lot of other boxers spence told. Espn his first public comments. Sister surgery a lot of them. Don't get checked up. Even if this would have happened earlier in training camp. I would still tried to spar and things like that and it probably would have damaged it permanently. I'm just grateful that happened when it happened. Caught sooner than later. And i have another chance what i love doing so now special. You prepares for yet. Another return from catastrophe man and He also caught it one of them. I did have a little curtain nine my eyesight but in my peripheral like shadow spence. Espn's number one hundred forty seven pounders said of his i before the air bubble was wrapped around it i was seeing that after sparring and things like that me. Just being a boxer being young. I didn't wanna say anything about that. But then the doctor asked me or something was wrong with my vision on the left side because my left eye looked like a shadow. Blau another quote. He says If a guest to the center of your i it will get a lot worse and said he was told by the doctor. If you would have got hit or anything it would have got way worse than what it is and thank god for that man. You know you just never know. Sometimes it's a fighter man you try to fight through shit you know and you know you're just a fighter at heart so yeah it's it's crazy that he did catch it like that because sometimes you try to fight through shit. She gets worse He goes on to say there was a ufc fighter who had the same thing. He started training too early and lost his eyesight. He went blind in one is spent said of the former. Ufc middleweight champion Michael yeah michael. Whippings i you. You'd look at him. It's like whoa. And i don't even i didn't even know i don't know if that's what i'm reading. But if he's blind from that. I it's crazy 'cause i just thought it looked funny by doctors telling me take it easy or just chill. That's what i'm gonna do not going to push it or think i'm superman son. Go wrong. I'm going to listen to the doctor and hopefully i make a full recovery and As far as what he can do. He's restricted from doing anything remotely strenuous strenuous like strength conditioning. Run in and definitely no sparring He quotes. i can't do nothing. I can't do nothing but walk. Spin says i gotta sleep on my left side. I gotta put my eye drops in. I know i can't spot for probably like two months. But i'm optimistic about what i what when i can start chaka's that's not bad two months but i'm optimistic about what i can start jogging. Hopefully that will be next three weeks or so and goes on another co says. It's freaky mandy. Pack yao future hall of famer future legend dali top ten of all time sped said one of the greatest of all time and i dropped out of a fight with him two weeks before the fight. That don't make sense not to mention all the money would make off pay per view. I called him out two years ago in the ring now like he picked me. I've been asking to fight him. The opportunity to detect the on. His resume has likely passed by. He still has a chance to resume his career and comeback from yet another career-threatening incident so that's The one one right now as far as Mr earl spent aerospace junior. And i'm glad that he did catch it in time. You know michael is a great example. I'll know mike if you ever seen Michael being but his eye looks like you know it's dark. It's it's way different than his other. And i didn't even know he didn't couldn't see from that. That's that's crazy. So i mean basically the biggest quotas his his his gratefulness for catching it ahead of time. Do you believe that did that. Will you know in terms. Bring him back to the ring any sooner like when are you guys expecting to see earl back in the ring. Well he says. Two months. Barring so i mean. I don't know how quick. I just don't know how i mean. Look the advice that he has to receive from. His doctors obviously is not Is not we're not privy to that so we don't know what the doctors are saying exactly but i'm pretty sure he's going to make the right decision and if it's two months now he can spar we're already at the end at the is it the fourth quarter already. Yeah we're at the fourth quarter september. October yeah just about so when we see him fight before the end of the year two months two months now we probably might not see him. Fight you know. We probably won't see him till maybe march. Who knows you know. I'm a spit nature. I would say i'm just thankful that he's okay and hopefully you know. He came back with a full healthy recovery. And we get a chance to see him again. That's the main thing yeah man. let's that that. That's what i'm interested in finding what what's going to happen. Because he holds two belts. And i know how these sanctioning bodies work you know. They took to keep about for for a lesser injury right. So i'm i'm waiting for the wbz to try to come in. Because they took eve's bo wbz you know wbz did yeah crazy to me to. Kdd are like the fact that he's already talking about smart in two months. I don't know that sounds. That sounds a bit and ambitious. Sounds a little bit like the Right but I mean other than that. Many pack cowan guys. Obviously you guys are saying he'll give me a rematch since. Yeah because man. He's not giving them the love and respect instead he's saying you know on my legs cramped up. I could beat you guys you know. Basically oh i had two weeks notice you.

June july august Host the wpa championship. What's going to happen with that thurman pops back in Maybe but after he gets out of his last fight with. Espn you know. The landscape is out now. So i do wish Spencer speedy recovery. I hope he gets well. That's nothing to play with man with that torn readiness so Love chili's Experience him really speaking on the injury and in this kinda sucks where boxing in the sense man because we need a good fight man appreciate the lou interview earlier speaks to that we we just. We just need something to really shake man. I plan on Cooking for that one man brisket ribs having friends over man. But i don't know about that. Who gets by man. I mean i'll watch it. But i'm not going to pull out all the stops you know so Hopefully boxing does as well by the end of the year going into next year. Man and i'm back in the queue on this one and have a good one. All right brother. Thank you for calling in. We got danny. But i'm meet as anyhow meters says jamal. Jane's versus saving and madonna combing event. Madonna's out man. So i don't know if you wasted supervisor money from what we. Hey where's where's the gazette. It should take still take place in the same. it's okay. I'll just make short because somebody had just hit me and was just like my ticket. I'm not trying to see that like they really. I like literally. Somebody clicked over somebody. Who's like am. I give you my ticket home. I'm not trying to go. I'm like i still go. Br i love boxing. So you know it's a sad man is a i think. I think we still get a great fight. I don't know. I think that the we don't obviously we're not gonna get as excited you know it's still a heartbreaker situation you know For the fans and for earl for but if we really look at what. The fight is really is Many pack house. Not infrared easy fight. You can say that arrow is better than your guys. If that's what your opinion is but you can't say that many pacos jumping into something like I know that some think the producer also mentioned this in comparison to the canal Contracts on him trying to get that guarantee or whatnot. And i don't know how that compares but I know that Your dina's who is not one of those easy task so i'm still gonna get my money's worth as a boxing fan. I mean you can never count a guy out either. You really think about it. You do a breakdown aerospace junior. Your dentist google's are are similar. You know i i give errol spence you know more more more points in being a better boxer but i can tell you you know your dentist the same type of fighter. Four pressure firefighter. So i can see some similarities. I can kind of see where this fight might go through and what you're going to have to watch out for I'm still okay. I'm still down I know people don't want to pay for this fight but You know. I don't know if it's gonna work out like that this. Does it work out like that ness where you know two weeks before the date of the fight all of a sudden you can't you can't pay per view or is this still going to go through pay per view. You know we gotta wait and see. I got three two things. Get to hawk in maryland but we do gotta wait and see. Hopefully they pull it out. They want they probably going to take all this data every all these reactions all the posts and just check the temperature and then make a decision because they haven't virtual press conference tomorrow. They've already announced that we got hulk in maryland. And says earl or crawford uganda's gets the torch and then we got line six re with the boomerang. He says i heard boots name. I'm back that one of the call one of the qualifier bucci to step up. Hey i agree. He talked to my son. Wanted to set up your no jesse world. I know booths stop. He's made his name on losing the porter in a and horrible fight. So i mean i don't even understand how anybody in their right mind could even say quarter any of these. These are on is level. I don't know why they're more popular than do boots gifts. These guys got there. He does and glassy tremendous fashion. Do doctor chance. Check every single block. Just i think i think ignorant is people are sleeping on his guy a troy. I always talk about all these five to nine and stuff. I urge you mentioned boot respecting his name till you komo now. Let's do it. That's my call mooks who only thing. He's lacking right now. Experience and experience is the best teacher not talent. So that's what happened. Mentioned butch because boots is a great fighter has good attribute defined left and right into got some decent inside work. But he's still a young man he needs to grow you. Put him in there with the light listening. This will make facts difficult. It has nothing to do with actual boxing. It's marvin hagler mentioned it. It's hard to wake up in trying when you land six sheets. And that's what makes Mellow employed the best because they have trillions of millions of dollars they account you know not trusting which saying and they still gym every day. Somebody's fires get paid in a temperament towards boxing starts to change. You know what i'm saying. So let boots grow learning. You will be the next era you know. The main lead learning do his thing. But don't try to foresee right now because being in that type of fight with paki out under the t mobile arena. Looks like 'cause he got the skill and the game flashy but when you smoke and you really don't get him out there in a fashion you or unique it gets it gets you started out yourself. And that's where experienced plays the best part if you listen to floyd. He always says. I've been here before already. Then i got super chat from supermax. Supermax says conspiracy rumors have it.

Professional Runner Neely Spence Gracey on Running the Houston Marathon & Olympic Trials
"So i wanna go back and talk about the trials because the last time that you were here on the show in january twenty twenty. You would run your first postpartum marathon. And as we know in the process qualified for the trials Let's talk about the turnaround between running houston and then running the trials in atlanta which was just about a month apart Touch a little bit about how your body handled that transition the recovery did you do a quick taper. What did that look like. In between marathons. My body did not handle it as well as i had hoped out. You know i. I went into houston On six weeks of training. And so i think we kind of talked about that in that last high gas that we did together I had just a really rough go with postpartum running. And it finally clicked for me in november of twenty nineteen. And i decided i was going to try a hail. Mary attempt at my goal of qualifying for the olympic marathon. Trials in twenty twenty. And so i am. I set up my race at houston on which was the last day i could qualify and gave it my best shot and iran to forty four. Got under that qualifier And i was. I was really happy with that. But it definitely took a larger toll on my body because marathon is beast and you know even going into well prepared It takes a toll on the body so when you go into a underprepared it was extra challenge but You know i went. I showed up. I i had earned a spot on the starting line. So that was you know it wasn't taking away from anyone else. But i went into it knowing that i wasn't going to finish the race on because i didn't want to have a big setback I didn't want to be broken. Because i had forced something to happen. I'm my big goal for twenty twenty was just a very slowly and gradually rebelled a really strong base so that i could have some strong racing and strong performances You know later that year. And so i saw it as If i was going to finish the marathon trials it would have set me back. I would have had to take probably a month off and then completely restart rebuild and so i ended up. I'm just doing the first lap of eight miles and then I stopped off the course.

Zola is based on that series of about 150, funny and often profane tweets. NPR's Mallory, You talk to some of the people behind Zola about turning a Twitter moment into a feature length film. That viral threat in 2015 wasn't the first time Zola born Asia King talked about that wild weekend on Twitter. She'd mentioned the story briefly after it happened the year before, but didn't go into much detail. Soon as I got home kind of just was like when I met this girl at my job, and she completely lied Kings, an exotic dancer, and she says her Twitter was already full of wild stories about people at the clubs where she worked. She got some sympathetic responses from her followers. But not much else. See, Intense encounters were just part of the job. Since I didn't go in depth. They kind of just felt like Oh, she had another one of her weekends, and we moved on Then that night in 2015. King was at home, pregnant and scrolling on her phone.

It never works today. Never liked what you get out of. It honestly comes at the worst times when i'm not wanting to write or like not wanting to face a problem because that's sometimes that's how it is like you know experiences that you don't want to necessarily like up it's like that's when you write great songs kind of open. Those experiences up and you're like crap is hurts but like it's gonna make a good song so all right. So you're you release your. Up what do you got going on after that. Are you going to try to promo that. We'll see. I wish it wasn't a thing because i'd love to tour Especially the states. I've never really got to delays legit.

Oldest Texas Electricity Co-Op Goes Bust After $2 Billion Bill
"11 bankruptcy protection today. Citing they said a nearly $2 billion bill from the state's electricity grid operator following the storm. Marketplaces and you'll reports. Those things can happen when you let the market dictate prices on a grid that's not connected to the rest of the country. Raza's Electric is a cooperative that pays the grid operator to get electricity to hundreds of thousands of Texans. The grid operator is called ERCOT there like a toll road for the electricity system. Costas America teaches environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon, he says in the February deep freeze, brasses Electric ran up bills many times higher than they normally be. The prices are allowed through the Texas Electricity system to rise when demand is really high, and supply is low. That's kind of the theory of all this the theory behind the largely deregulated market, a system that many are now questioning. David Spence teaches energy law of the University of Texas, he says. In fairness, I don't know that anyone ever anticipated an event like this when they were designing that system. Now, this seems like a black swan event in that sense, But a similar event did hit Texas 10 years ago, and lawmakers decided not to winterize Emily Groubert and George Attack says there's an opportunity again to rethink infrastructure more generally. I think we need to be really, really thoughtful about when it is actually logical to spend a little bit more money here to make sure that these systems actually do what we want them to do for the next several decades. Brasses Electric said before the freeze, it was financially robust. Its bankruptcy family could be an ominous sign. As other Texas power providers success the storm's damage in Austin, I made a Euler for marketplace.

Artificial Intelligence in Industry
AI for Translating Enterprise Content - with Spence Green of Lilt
"So i know. We're gonna be talking about ai for translation and clearly. That's a a workflow that you folks are impacting. Get an understanding of what it looks like. Now you get a big brand like an intel or some some large company. That's got localize all their web content. How do they do that with people. Sure so dan let me let me. I tell you a story so you can understand what the motivation for doing. This translation is so most people today are familiar with google. Translate and use it when you browse the web and you could translate chrome or you use it on your phone and you'll see this in a lot of consumer devices and that's really useful for these consumer use cases where you on translate a sign you see on the road or you see a restaurant menu or you just want to get a gist of a web page of language that you don't speak okay so that not as widely used. Google translate has had enormous impact. And everybody's familiar with that. The second case. I think it more. Broadly is in business and so our motivation for building. This company was experience. I had about fifteen years ago. I was living overseas in a country. A non english speaking country Were but were. Linguists was spoken as lingua franca. And i had a friend who didn't speak english but spoke the native language of this country and he told me that he was paid less and could not get a job because he didn't speak english. And this occurred to me as a sort of inequality that we don't talk about very much are you can learn a language but you can't control your native language. If you don't speak english it's a barrier to opportunity undertake percent okay so taking that as the premise. Now take got to business. Businesses sell their products and services. And they wanna make those available to people in different languages so that they can do their job so that they can do research for products so that they can learn and presently the way that that is done is by hiring people to type translation. There's assistance used but for the most part it's just hiring human translators to translate much the same way that transition has been done since i don't know before agricultural so what we wanted to do and no machine translation was used so this was about twenty ten when we were learning about this problem. So what we are initial idea was to emma and i met working on google. Translate to take that technology and art meant what translators do the translation. Problem is not a solved problem so we can't fully remove the human translator but we can certainly amplify what they do and if we can do that then we can make it much more affordable inefficient for companies to make all of their information available to anybody who wants it and so for comparison right now companies pay about eighty dollars for an eight and a half by eleven one and a half spaced. Page of twelve point type. So it's very very expensive. Let's ten yeah. Yeah and so we wanna use technology to drive that price down so that for a fixed budget. Companies can localize more of their information. That's good for them. They can grow their business. And it's good for the world because more people have access to the products and services that you and i take for granted. Yeah so. And i guess there's like the equality element here that you're sort of bringing in on the side but clearly it's just like if intel wants people in japan to read their stuff. There's that benefit to right. We were in english primarily we can. We can move our product. Yeah that's right. There's there's four hundred no there's about four hundred million native speakers of english there's about another seven hundred million l two speakers and then there are a couple of hundred million speaking for language. You're talking one and a half million people in the world that speak english that leaves what five and a half billion humanity. Yeah regarding of humanity right so it's it's not just for positive social impact. We're capitalists and this is an opportunity for businesses to to grow their son of customers at eighty bucks a page. I mean that's a business opportunity right the folks that we've seen working on translation of all kinds of pick their lane. Your lane seems to be sort of digital asset. So maybe we'll walk through what that looks like now. So let's say a big company knows a general electric you know they're they're got a new jet engine in they're going to sell it around the world as do normally they're going to create their when it's web pages it sales collateral you probably know the list and then and then they would hire their team of people hopefully have a relationship with who are going to a really nice fine comb job at eighty bucks a page of four for all those different assets that more or less what it looks like now. Yeah that's exactly right. So typically a business will decide we're going to do business in these markets and that's a business decision and then the choices which of their of their english experience because usually companies translating out of english four. You're going to make available in that market and so for example. One of our customers is intel. Everybody knows intel's products and intel sales. They look lies into about sixteen languages right now. And so that's everything that's until dot com product manuals technical specs marketing materials. Everything having to do with intel's products and services and it turns out that despite the fact that translation so expensive it's typically less expensive than offering new content from scratch every day work in the second sort of operational constraint is companies generally want a consistent brand across their products and services. If you're offering things in different locales you've got a lot more people involved. It's very very difficult to control the brand so it's much easier to author in one language. Control the brand messaging there and then localized into a bunch of different languages. So that's kind of the business. Motivation for
California Nurses Demonstrate Outside Hospitals As COVID Crisis Worsens
"In California. The Corona virus crisis is triggering a battle between hospitals and the state's powerful nurses union. Hospitals run out of staff. The state is asking nurses to take care of more patients at once than they normally would watering down the union's most sacrosanct job protection. A nurse to patient ratio law that so far exists on Lee in California. KQED s health correspondent April de Bosque reports. Normally telemetry. Nurses take care of four patients at once. But now that the governor has relaxed the state's ratio law Norris a black has to keep track of six were given 50% more patients, and we're expected to do 50% more things. With the same amount of time Her patients are sick. Many of them are in the hospital for a stroke or heart attack, and they have coveted black is terrified of missing something or making a mistake. You know, I go home, and I feel like I could have done more. Oh, I could have done this for them. I could have done that for them. But there just wasn't enough time. In recent weeks, the state has excused 170 hospitals from the normal ratio, rules and nurses have taken to the streets in socially distant protests like this one in San Bernadino. Carrying signs that say ratios save lives. They accused hospitals of putting profits over preparing for a surge of lying nurses off over this summer than not hiring or training enough for winter. It seems that the hospitals have been more reactive. Than proactive in their staffing in California's current surge four times as many people are testing positive for the virus compared to the summer peak up to 7000 new patients could be coming to California hospitals every day. That's according to Carmela Coyle, the head of the state's Hospital association. She says. There's no way around the math. We are simply out of nurses out of doctors out of respiratory therapists. Coyle says hospitals have tried to hire contract nurses, but because California's surged early during the summer and other parts of the United States then surged afterwards. Those travel nurses are taken, she says. The change to the ratios is saving lives, and we cannot in the crisis of this proportion, buying nurses and doctors hands with red tape. Coyle says hospitals next step is to try team nursing pulling nurses from the operating room, for example, to help with covert patients. UC San Francisco economics professor joins Spitz says hospitals should have started training for this over the summer, but they didn't either because of costs or excessive optimism. California was doing so well and that we kind of got it under control, and I think there was a lot of belief that we would be able to maintain that spent says the nurses union has reason to be defensive of the ratio law. It took 10 years before it passed the Legislature in 1999, then several more to clear the court challenges, including one from then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as some rally where they were protesting. He made some offhand comment about kicking the nurses but because I'm always kicking death, but that's why they don't like me, which really hardened the opposition to him. Nurses prevailed in the court of public opinion and law, but the battle has made them fiercely protective of ratios. They've even accused hospitals of using the pandemic to try to roll them back for good. Hospitals denied this, and Spence says it's unlikely to go in and say Oh, you clearly did so well without ratios when we let you wave them, So let's just eliminate them entirely, I think would be just adding insult to moral injury to nurses. The public can see that nurses are overworked and burned out by the pandemic spent says there will be little appetite to cut back their job protections once it's over.

Becoming New Parents with Michael Bosstick and Lauryn Evarts Bosstick of The Skinny Confidential Podcast
"So in developmental research three parenting styles that are that you typically see across all cultures apart from neglect. Which obviously we're not talking about that on parenting podcast but So one is called authoritarian. And it's when you are super strict and you have really high expectations and sort of almost fear based parenting but in terms of emotional sensitivity. You're not there and so then. The other side of it is permissive. Parenting where it's like a free for all best friend. Parenting super sensitive to your child's emotional needs not a lot of boundaries not a lot of limit setting and then in this middle spot when you combine you guys is called authoritative parenting. And it's when you have sensitive warm nurturing and also very clear expectations in boundaries and that sort of combination allows kids to kind of grow in a way that they can be their emotional selves. But also they're gonna do something they're going to be able to you know sleep through the night if we're talking about babies or have a job whatever whatever the example is and so it sounds like you know usually you kind of copy a little bit about the parent the a little bit of the parenting that you experienced so did you have more permissive. Open parents or were they. It's funny because i think i married my mother and he thinks he married his father like personality personality wise. Yeah yeah. My mother was definitely more strict. More about more about Structure whereas my father was definitely more like me. Do you want to hear the more. The interesting thing is like. I do agree with that. But also i think that as i've gotten older maybe i'm more like my mother and as she's gotten older she's more like her father which is dynamic. And i think like selfishly. I talk about this on our podcast. The reason i liked the schedule. I i think we should prepaid lauren and i when we had the baby. We're both working fulltime doing their media and she's actually glad you said that because that is why i asked that question is you're you're both fulltime working here like after. We had the baby in january. And i went back to work two weeks and fortunately covert and if there is back to work when i was actually pushing getting texas but when i was in labor with covid hit straight back to work two weeks running. Intermediate and covert hypnosis. Go after kind of go back to the house. And i'm actually really happy if there isn't a silver lining spent so much time but the reason we we had a night nurse in the beginning. 'cause we were both fulltime and had we have no family in l. a. Was just us two. She helped us put the baby on a sleep schedule and find time to eat and just really taught us things. We had no clue what we're doing at all like both. We're not maybe people before and selfishly. I like the schedule. Because i know if i follow the schedule it gives me the most time with the child because if she's all over the place and sleeping when i'm working when i'm not then both of us don't get spence. I look at analogy. I know when she's when she's sleeping. Which is eating and maximize the time with her It's just kind of fell into this at the same time like last night. It was nine o'clock and she was still up in. That's not her schedule. she's supposed to be in bed at seven thirty. But i'm the type of person that's adoptable to that. She what she didn't want to go to sleep. She didn't feel good. She's teething so i brought her in my room. I turned on the salt rock lamp. I put like red light for her meditation music and i think six months ago he win like we can't do this can the and now he's sort of adopted to the fact that not everything is going to be on time all the time. There's going to be different circumstances. You have to be more valuable so it together. It's it's coming together nicely. I do think that it's like definitely a learning experience for about the west. That like you said and so we so six months. You've actually fully been covid. Parents entire january twenty six. So we we get like a month. You've got a month. I think for babies they. They were living their best life. There couldn't be anything better. You're

A radically different Prime Day: Heres what to expect
"Prime Day is this week the fact of the coronavirus it's happening far later in the year right ahead of black Friday. So what are we expecting? I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me is retail expert and daily charge regular Fox ribbon welcome Ben. Prime Day is hitting tomorrow. What are you expecting? So many deals so many deals in so many saves. What like just alive. I know I know I'm sounding sarcastic but it is true. This is basically the unofficial kickoff to the holiday selling season not just for Amazon but Amazon has basically figured out a way to dictate to every other retailer when to start their deals for the holidays. So what will be very interesting is to see. How much the steals away from Black Friday and cyber Monday because it could actually be pretty notable this year unlike in previous years where Prime Day was July was kind of its own thing, right? That's a really good point and. One cares about in terms of were stretching out the holiday shopping season longer than ever I feel like it's it's starting even sooner now, and as you said, it's sort of the prime day unofficially kicks off the holiday shopping season. With. Black Friday at the end of next month and Prime Day Nalic. Is there a risk of retail overload people just being inundated sales like how long can this keep up? No, they're absolutely could be a situation with retail overload. and. That's why I'm sure a lot of retailers are front loading some of their best black Friday deals around Prime Day. We've already seen it with best buy Walmart target. They're all announcing you know these delays and you know the big save and all that other nonsense but that's that's because. the economy is lousy unemployment is way up and there's no stimulus. If there was a stimulus there, there was a general impression in the retail world from analysts that I talked to that Amazon was in essence trying to hold its breath long enough for another stimulus to come through because when the last one came through, there was a huge surge in consumer spending for all sorts of things work from home gear entertainment. People are renovating their houses, all sorts of stuff, and you know had DC gotten its act together. This could have been very well timed for that where all the retailers we're going to get a nice big benefit. So Black Friday might be saved by the potential of a stimulus happening around November to late November. But as we know that is not guaranteed. We've been holding our breath and waiting for another stimulus Watson's May. So, that could mean that black Friday will definitely have plenty of deals bud a lot of consumers because of the economic situation that we're in. They're not gonNa have as much of what what's the word like as much ammunition because they've already been ex they've already exhausted their budgets around Prime Day. So they're just not gonNA have as much money to spend around black Friday cyber Monday. So in that respect in terms of. I guess being a smart buyer and trying to get the best deals is it's Margaret by early or would it be smarter to wait? Till you know everyone else's sort of exhausted from the buying scoop in those last minute deals. Okay. So I don't want like come off as being like you know by by by whatever guide like I frankly don't care if you buy holiday gifts or not. That's not really my job here. However, if you are buying stuff for the holidays, if you do have things that you wanNA, buy every single indication. Points to buying early, and there are a number of reasons for that. One of them is there have been massive supply chain constraints throughout the year because of Corona virus, any high demand items which include work from home stuff electrtonics anything that you think your neighbor might wind everybody else wants to, and that could run out a lot faster this holiday season. So that's a reason to buy early another reason by. Early. Is Because of delivery times. So delivery shipments, everybody's buying online a lot more deliveries or bottle necking. I don't need to remind people that there's also a lot more ballots by mail. That's GONNA put in additional strain on the US Postal Service. So that's another very, very good reason a by early. So do I care whether you buy on Prime Day or not? No absolutely not I don't care if. You got a toaster bite if you WANNA toaster, you should buy it around Prime Day. So hopefully, I conveyed that well enough because I'm not I'm not trying to get you to buy anything by if that is very clear and direct advice related to if you want to buy something and you have the money to it, that's that's great and thank you. You've successfully convinced me to not by test or now. So, beyond the beyond the timing, which is obviously very different primed is usually in the middle summer. What else can we expect that that's going to be different about this prime day? So the thing that I find most interesting or useful related to this is kind of like the social awareness element that Amos on is embedding into Prime Day. So this has been a really difficult year. Everybody's working from home, they're doing remote learning and so there. It's not like super upfront as far as like they're they're China plaster, their website with black lives matter banners, which which they did by the way earlier this year. But they are doing a couple of special deals like for instance, if you spend ten dollars on small businesses. That are that are on its website. Amazon will then give you like Amazon pays for it a ten dollar gift certificate that you can spend on prime day. So that's a really obvious way to benefit small businesses. There are also really promoting their charitable feature, which is called Amazon smile. So I, these are these are you know little ways but still very useful ways for them to use primed as a platform to. Actually benefit smaller businesses charities a lot of places that have been hurting during coronavirus and do it in such a way that like you know we're still we're still celebrating this big sale. So we're not trying to like remind you of how awful things are but also be aware that like, Hey, if you if you do spend like there could actually be like a social benefit related to it as well. Judge. And for Amazon like how big of deal is prime day going to be it's This going to be like previous ones will the coronavirus have an impact either positive or negative? What what are we looking at? This will definitely be I can't say definitely because I don't have a crystal ball, but this is expected to be the biggest prime day yet, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that just you know people are buying online a lot more this year in general My expectation is is that this is actually going to be a bigger deal for traditional retailers in small businesses. Amazon has been selling like crazy all year. Regardless they're gonNA do really well on prime day to they're going to do really well on black Friday and cyber Monday. By kind of halo effect that black that Prime Day is going to create I, think is going to help a lot of these other retailers that have been in more of a bind in more difficulty this year. So in that regard, the way to go prime day you know you're you're helping more retailers go into bankruptcy protection even though they've traditionally driven a bunch of them into bankruptcy protection there helping them stave off bankruptcy protection got it, and like looking at them from the consumer perspective, what are they? They really in the mood to spend spence ban and go crazy with shopping this holiday season yeah absolutely I think people you know they would like the distraction number one. Of something that's not constantly reminding them of the Corona virus and the election which is exhausting both of those are exhausting and They need stuff Amazon in their advertising about this really focuses more on the practicality of prime day like stuff that you need around your house like home entertainment stuff work from home stuff they're trying to emphasize that a little bit more, and if you could get a deal on that and you could use it and it makes your life a little bit easier then great that's fantastic and get a deal on it. So yeah, I think. Consumers will definitely be into it, and if they can front load some of their holiday spending and get get some savings on stuff that he's going to go out of stock earlier than than more power to you. So yeah, I definitely expect consumers to show up in a big way for prime day this year
How I Built This
Interview with Jeremy Stoppelman of Yelp
"This industry has just been absolutely hammered unlike any other industry travel leisure as well. So many people go to yelp for restaurants. So did you anticipate that pretty quickly early on that restaurants we're going to get hit or did that come as a surprise to you? We had some sense that restaurants are gonNA, get hit. What of our? More Cedar product managers of Chinese person who had lots of contacts in China and was relying like all the changes that restaurants were going through in. China to try and adapt at the outset of the pandemic like this is crazy. They're doing all these things with temperature checks at the door like delivered new delivery things partitions, and it just seemed so unlikely that that could be our reality especially at that time call it early March, we were studying this and everything still felt normal but it was you know pretty soon we could start seeing impacts in some of the cities that were hardest hit in the. US. So for example, Seattle and You. Know that obviously got US thinking about business ramifications and okay restaurants, which is a big portion of our traffic are going to be hard hit. You know what can we do? We weren't going to charge restaurants for instance, for that period where traffic was following and even if they were getting some value, you know the everyone is thrown into total chaos and like there really isn't a whole lot of point to advertising. Traffic is falling like that. So so pulling together, a bunch of different things to support the restaurant nightlife industry at a time, became a big priority and ultimately culminated with about thirty two million dollars, worth of forgiven fees and young. To Support Restaurants Jeremy Your Business Model depends largely on advertising on businesses that advertise on the platform and businesses that depend on ads have had a difficult time because companies are cutting back on their ad spence. For obvious reasons, they've got to preserve cash in many cases. And this has actually pretty dramatically affected your business yelps business right I mean over the over the past year that was one of the scariest things a particularly about march in April you know in a pandemic especially as things are shutting down. WHO's buying advertise wait? So that was my great fear was you know is our revenue going to go toward zero like maybe it's not zero, but is it going to go towards zero pretty darn quickly. We had some very stressful difficult conversations around my the different potentially catastrophic scenarios. What would we do? How do we survive you know? Is there a freeze? The company amber type strategy literally was something we were talking about like where we just go down to the skeleton of staff fits a nuclear winter type of situation. Fortunately, the world did start to re stabilize and as the panic subsided, there were businesses that actually were doing even finer good You know like as all of us were sheltered at home. Suddenly if your toilet backed up, you're calling the plot a plot. Being more busier and some people started moving later in the pandemic mover traffic was doing reasonably well and so there ended up being areas of our business because we are diversified we're no obviously widely for restaurants, but we also have. Reviews and customers in all sorts of local services categories as well. Area of the business has been quite resilient contractors and and and so on. Interesting I remember when you on the podcast you talked about to crisis moments I remember was when you were x dot com and you were just Totally, terrified that I think that pay pal was gonna like crush you guys and you'd sleepless nights about that and then the other one was when you started yelp and nobody came to the party like it was really just didn't gain any traction in the in the months many months and you will really worried you had a lot of anxiety about and you talked about that and this sounds like even more intense what you went through in March and April. Just probably personally, I? mean. Planning for a nuclear winter. But in in some senses like I wonder whether anticipating that possibility actually was in a sense probably the best way to game out what your strategy would be. Because in the end, it didn't work out that way but it but you were planning for the worst. Yeah. One of the things that I would say was beneficial of going to that awful place in our minds with I'd say at the early part of the pandemic, it's hard for people to really wrap their heads around the scope of the problem how big the problem is how it's going to change our lives it just seems. Unbelievable. and. so by forcing other executives managers, etc start thinking about this, this could be the big one just so to speak. You know it gets you into a brain's base that did shift everyone's thinking to. The A big problem. We have to take this extremely seriously, and there's going to be big changes and moves that none of us are going to like we have to do to ensure the survival
