Biden hosts congressional leaders on lame-duck sprint
"President Biden has hosted Congress's top leaders at a bid to lock in more legislative wins before a Democrats lose house control in January. We're here to get work done. The president sat at the head of a table facing top Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, along with GOP leaders, Mitch McConnell, and Kevin McCarthy. There's a lot to do, including resolving the train strike. A potentially crippling freight rail strike next week. It's not an easy call, but I think we have to do it. The economy is at risk. The president is also where Jay legislation to avoid a government shutdown next month and pushing for it to include more funding for the COVID-19 response and Ukraine. Sagar Meghani, Washington.
US renews push for COVID boosters as data show they protect
"The White House is launching what it calls a 6 week sprint for more Americans to get the updated COVID-19 booster. The boosters have been a hard sell, only about 13% of American adults have received one. The Biden administration's hoping new numbers will convince more people. The CDC says the first look at the shot to real world effectiveness shows those who receive the new booster are better protected against symptomatic infection than those who have not. The overarching message here at The White House. We know what the evidence is. The signs on this is crystal clear and virus response chief doctor Rashid says Americans need to take advantage. People go out and get vaccinated this week. They will have a lot of protection during December, January, February onwards. The time that we socialize the most Sagar Meghani at The White House.
There's Something We Can Learn From Democrats...
"There is something I want to say, and I know that people do not want to hear this in our audience because they email and they say Charlie stopped talking about things that went wrong. They just flat out stole it. Okay, but this is interesting though. If you listen to what happened in Colorado, because I made a lot of calls last night, right? I made calls to people on the ground in Pennsylvania and Colorado and Georgia and in most states, except Texas and Florida, and they have all said as they're doing their data analysis. They saw a same and similar collapse of independence across the board across the country. Now, people might say, well, Charlie, it's because they had this rigged system. Well, if that's the case, then how did Ron DeSantis win by 20 points, right? How did Brian Kemp win by 6 or 7 points. Now, ballot harvesting and ballot capturing and machines going down in Arizona, we are the one of the only shows that is going to repeatedly talk about it. But there is growing evidence that there was something done by the Democrats that we can learn from that is constructive and important about how on earth did we do so well with independence in the polling and in certain early returns and in person election day, but there was a faction, a type of independence that totally gravitated their support away from us. And Andrew, there could be some explanations. But the most logical one would probably be something around Dobbs, something around a targeted ad campaign, or is it Andrew that Republicans didn't sprit sprint the last half mile of the marathon? Do you think that we just kind of were candidates just kind of let up that there wasn't a targeted campaign to go after independence? I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud. Andrew, what are your thoughts on that? I mean, listen, I think Dobbs completely. It's a point that I've made on the show this week. I think, you know, living in California, you know, my wife's Friends, we would have these conversations. And it kind of, I kind of didn't key in on it enough. Honestly. But they did a great job on platforms like TikTok, social media, you know, my wife told me hers was full of it before the election of just people saying, hey, they want a criminalized miscarriages. We all know that that's so ridiculous not to be true. I mean, half of pregnancies basically end in miscarriage. That's never going to happen. That's a crazy thing. I think it worked a lot with independence. I think it worked a lot with single women. We saw them go way far to the left this cycle.

"And as part of our courage to that, I was going through all the penalty incidents for gasly and apart from the obviously the infamous now infamous crane incident in Japan. He's been pinged 5 seconds every time. So for stroll to get a ten second penalty, I think reflects quite how dimly disturbed sort of that particular piece of driving. As for the alpines, first off credit to Alonzo one almighty save on the first lap when he went wide over there sort of serrated kerb. I've watched the replays now several times. I just can't work out if the two cars do touch on the first lap. You know, it looks like a mega save from Alonso for opposite locker. I just can't work out whether there's a bit of contact wheel to wheel if there's not then that's a proper save. On the second incident between the alpines, you know, going up the hill, again I've sat on that a few times, I've watched the replays and ocon, he makes his move quite early on coming out of what is still the last corner even though it's not a proper corner. It's flat out. So although he said after the event, I wasn't aware Alonso was there. It very much looks like he's taking a more defensive line. But I think Alonso, if he is coming from behind on your teammate, you can afford to give a bit more room. So I know that that sort of me sitting on the fence in terms of who was directly at fault in both. But what I can't say is you can't touch your teammate once, let alone twice. So both sort of needs a heads knocking together. I suppose for whatever better phrase, it was a poor incident. But less clear cut than the Aston Martin won for me. Well, it certainly made for an eventful F one sprint, but it was George Russell obviously taking the way and that means he'll line up on pole position for tomorrow's Brazilian Grand Prix. Matt, thank you very much for joining me tonight and yeah, we will see you all tomorrow for our Brazilian Grand Prix, race, review, podcast, promises to be a really exciting race out into Lagos to track always throws up an interesting one. So make sure you join us then and stay tuned to all spot forward of the news analysis and reaction from Suarez race.

"Particularly from what Russell and Hamilton said after the sprint race in the press conference, how much does this mean to Mercedes in terms of showing that they're on the right path, they are on the right trajectory. And that after such a long season, they're now able to fight at the very front, be Red Bull and Verstappen in a wheel to will fight over only a third of a race distance, but still that is real, not light at the end of a tunnel. It seems like something far, far bigger than that for everyone working at Mercedes right now. It's a brilliant melting pot, isn't it? They've talked to Russell said about how we expect to go back to brackley and see them more than ever pumping on all cylinders with the phrase he used. But in terms of circumstances, so as you mentioned about upgrade, so okay Verstappen had a slow pit stop in Austin, which sort of threw the waist wide open, but it was at Austin that Mercedes had this new upgrade and since then, they've been threatening for victory in America, threatened for victory in Mexico and obviously have won the sprint race. There's been a step forward taking and I asked Russell about it in a press conference and he referred to it as being since a slimmer car has come forward. So although a few months behind that, maybe they're going down this lightweight package that paid off a Red Bull. Sort of interestingly, because under the aerodynamic testing regulations, that's effectively a free upgrade if you like, you can spend as long as you like as long as you're within the cost cap shaving grams of here and there as opposed to putting the car in a wind tunnel where you're restricted. So to look at the bigger picture and taking a confidence, I think you've now got a point where okay Ferrari said our Mexico was just a blip, but I can throw some more numbers at you and this weekend looks similarly like half a second a lap off the pace bad for Ferrari. So I don't think, you know, I think science is redeemed a lot versus Verstappen in those tyres, but we saw how leclerc, how unhappy leclerc was no matter what he was doing with the car in FP two, probably a bit of a sub frustration hanging over the mess up in qualifying, but if Ferrari have taken that backward step and then you think, well, at some point, Red Bull is going to be 10% down on its aero testing and Mercedes has taken that strike forward, then suddenly what you had in, you know, before it was summer break straight after the summer break where it looked like right, bigger picture here, cam Mercedes challenge in 2024. Suddenly, this is looking not to get ahead of ourselves, but suddenly this is looking like a gap that maybe one winter, that might be enough. Yeah, again, it will be fascinating to see. Yeah, definitely looking like a very close fight coming between the leading teams and F one next year, hopefully. Speaking of close fights, there were a couple of quite spicy instance between teammates soon to be ex teammates through the sprint. We saw Fernando Alonso and Esteban ocon, they had two clashes on the opening lap one at turn four, the stewards looked at it and said, no further investigation. The second one probably more more damaging literally for Alonso's car losing his front wing was on the main straight when his front wing touched the right rear tire on ocon's car. Alonso was pretty salty about it over the radio quite angry, said, lost the front wing thanks to our friend well done after the race. He said, well, there's only one more race to go and then it's all over. So that was seems pretty tense. And then down at Aston Martin we saw Lance stroll forcing Sebastian Vettel onto the grass as they came down towards turn four, trying to stay ahead and Vettel far more diplomatic over the radio, just going, okay? And then got on with it the very next lap, and yeah, stroll seemed a bit more cooperative thereafter. What did you make of those instance matter? I mean, it seems pretty, with the Alpine ones, maybe a little bit more 50 50, but I mean, with stroll, I mean, it's the what second time in three four races we've seen something like that that are looking at the Alonso incident in Austin as well. Yeah, the Aston Martin wants to bank to write on that one. And as you say, where stroll and Alonso not destined to be teammates next season, I think you might have seen a bit more fury from the Spaniard than racing incident for what happened in Austin. Now that was pretty, pretty scary. The fact he kept the car going to the flag is still remarkable. But you know, which stroll, I think he deserves enormous credit that his first laps this season have been mega, you know, in terms of gaining places, I'm being super aggressive, but obviously there's a downside to that, which is now a sort of not on the opening lap. He squeezed Vettel much too far for the sake of what is it, it's internal internal bragging rights at Aston Martin. So I don't think that the sort of the prize or the stakes were high enough to the guys retired. I don't think, I don't think the sort of it was good for either parting and forcing him or putting him in a position where Vettel had to have most of his car over the grass. Yeah, completely needless and deserve a ten second penalty, which actually is penalty points and penalties had been a talking point this weekend because Gaza is right up against the threshold. And as part of our courage to that, I was going through all the penalty incidents for gasly and apart from the obviously the infamous now infamous crane incident in Japan. He's been pinged 5 seconds every

"To see. The tire choice, that obviously was so decisive in this, it seemed like it really seemed like Versace was struggling with tyre where something that we've not really seen the Red Bull be a main weakness on so far this year. He said afterwards that he felt like he was eating the tyres alive. Despite starting on the mediums, a Christian Horner explained on Sky Sports saying that the plan was basically start on the mediums, survive the first sort of 12, 14 apps, and then should be okay. It was like 15 when Russell actually got him, so the soft definitely hung on a little bit longer. Mercedes, they said that their data showed that the medium was not a very good tyre to be on from what they saw in practice. But obviously Red Bull does have an advantage. She's now saving a set of softs as they go into Sunday's race. Matt, you spoke with the top three, so including George Russell Lewis Hamilton after the sprint race. What did they say about that split entire and what did you make of it? Do you think Red Bull simply got it wrong today going for the medium with Verstappen? In hindsight, of course I did, but you know, give Red Bull strategists their Jews considering how brilliant they've got it a lot of the season. Both Mercedes drivers came out in a press conference. This was not a clear cut choice. This isn't like hungry when Ferrari put on the hard tyres and everyone, everyone could go what on earth are you doing? It's not even like Mexico where it surely surely to everyone else. It was thought Mercedes were playing it way too safe by not splitting their strategies. This was not that sort of clear cut decision I think it was a lot more a little more 50 50. However, in terms of to bring in sort of my personal opinions that are quoting the drivers. Tonight, once you've done this podcast, I'll go and write this feature about what have we learned from a sprint race broken down some of the numbers from epi two in particular. And I think the performance between soft and mediums this weekend has already been marginal to that say, I don't think the medium's pace is the usual sort of 6 tenths off the soft as it is. But also the soft song wearing that much more than the medium. So it's a quite a close title. So the downside obviously of Red Bulls called start a medium is that Verstappen has been struggling with understeer all weekend, which he's never happy with that. That's why the narrative around Monaco and Azerbaijan was that he was being sort of not dominating press like he should because he was struggling with understeer. So when those problems emerged a weekend over the weekend, I think the logical point then is to put this up on the sauce so he has the front end bite and can manage the oversteer. So that's one point, but I would also take the cut up to argument, having a looking at the average lap times from the use of all the drivers or the top 6, so you Mercedes Ferrari and Red Bulls were running in free practice too. Verstappen sort of middling on those the Mercedes were quicker, Perez was much, much quicker on used mediums if they run in comparative fuel loads and all of that. So I suppose if you're looking at that and you're thinking, okay, we think we can get Magnussen done pretty quickly, but we know we've got at least one fry and one Mercedes. It brought on the same compound, perhaps this is part of their thought process we don't know that stage. Perhaps we should do something different or anticipate being on a medium tyre. So instead of knowing where the fourth quickest car at this point, we might actually do something different and then obviously you have the factors like you hope the tire comes to Red Bull that the others do suffer from degradation, but it proved to be the wrong call ultimately. Definitely and I think tomorrow will obviously be the proof in the pudding George Russell was very quick to say afterwards that yeah, it's the big point tomorrow. That's what we want and he'll be a yeah, hoping to sort of remove that mis niner about being an F one race winner and make it legit with victory tomorrow. But you mentioned sort of looking at the numbers and everything like that. Realistically, can Mercedes win tomorrow's Brazilian Grand Prix? Yes, I'm going to say yes because I think if I throw some rough numbers at you. So if we get the hard tyres used on those Verstappen is the fourth quickest driver, Hamilton's second Russell started prez is actually comfortably quickest again that which would support that narrative if the car is understeering this weekend. He's happier with that. And the difference between the Merckx is a tenth and a half separating the teammates and Hamilton's favor and it's another three tenths back to Verstappen. And this is very much my rounding and my number. So take that with a huge pinch of salt. As for the sauce, again, press leading away Russell Hamilton then Verstappen. And it's sort of about three tenths covering covering those four drivers. So it is, of course, marginal. But the Mercedes case is strong. It's just how they operate because they've been talking already about what we need to work together. We know that we're not the favorites going into this race. So part of that is they're playing down their chances and talking at Red Bull. But we speak to driver so quickly after the sprint race at they've obviously processed a sprint sprint result, but they haven't gone and had their engineering debrief. And that might be the concerted right. Let's work together so we can secure the team result. And that's great. And Russell on paper should have secured the preferential treatment by starting higher in a grid four tomorrow, but that this comes hot on the heels of Mexico as this really nice subplot, whereas Hamilton, where Hamilton was not staying behind his teammate, he was super aggressive fritos, was it turns one, two, and three in Mexico to make sure he got track position, so he would be on the optimal strategy to chase after Red Bull. So obviously they're being team players, the brackley factories had a pretty rough time of it in 2022 by comparison to their previous year. So they want to get the best result possible for the team. But if you're going to break Mercedes Dutch, will we see anything tomorrow if there's a slightly so getaway, for instance, for Russell and it's a case of Verstappen's there. So Hamilton has to get by and whether if they have therefore split strategies, whether they're sort of their plan for the next 50 lapses immediately gone out the window because there's been that change of order. So I think that'll be a horrible, horrible sort of motor sport parlance or whatever or across media, but it really will be fascinating to see Luke. It will be very an overused most for cliche, but I shall let you off with that. It will be though. I think that for Mercedes as well. You look at how far the team has come this year, obviously it went from the early part of the season, struggling so much with the poor person looking miles off the pace that it wouldn't stand a chance of winning a race this season. And then we had the Barcelona update and it thought, okay, we've cured it and then they find out that actually the porpoise isn't the big issue with Carl along. It's something far deeper, far more baked in to the DNA of the car, but we know he's obviously going to change for next year.

"The most memorable Saturday races yet, as George Russell defeated Max Verstappen to secure top spot on the grid for the Brazilian Grand Prix, a split entire strategy saw Russell start on softs and Verstappen on the mediums and once both had picked off Friday hero and pole man Kevin Magnussen, a cat and mouse fight ensued at the front of the field. It took three bites of the cherry as Verstappen defended Hardin's term for the Russell got the move done with ten laps to go before sprinting if your pardon the pun into the distance and secure the Saturday win for Mercedes. Verstappen fell back to fourth after losing a chunk of his front wing in contact with Carlos Sainz, the Ferrari man grabbing second ahead of Lewis Hamilton. Science's engine change penalty drops him back to 7th on the grid, meaning it is provisionally an all Mercedes front row, although Hamilton is among 6 drivers going to the stewards this evening for various sprint race incidents. Joining me to discuss today's F one sprint is auto sport F one editor Matt Q now Matt first things first was that the best F one sprint yet. I think so, so listeners I'll give you a secret that we're not quite as spontaneous as this podcast would suggest we Luke sent me the script a few minutes ago for this. So I've been roundly I've just recapped refreshed for myself that the previous sprint races and what are the contenders before I think Silverstone probably for max versus Lewis, but that was only really one lap one corner. It was more about what happened the following day. And the only other thing of note, I think, at Silverstone, was Alonso's recovery. So that was decent. I suppose Monza you'd say how it set up the McLaren's for the win the next day and then Brazil was all about Hamilton's comeback drive, which in itself was fantastic, but in terms of the question over, what could Magnussen do? How soon Verstappen overtake. And then and then the Mercedes coming through, and the clashes between teammates and that's what you want from a sprint race. If I can make it all about myself, it's not an easy one to write because it's so frenetic and the laps ticked by a so quickly at such a short circuit, but that was mega if that's if that's what a sprint race is all about, then brilliant. But something I would complain about is can't all be perfect. So I was delighted that the rules were changed for this year because Kevin Magnussen is now recognized as officially having won a Formula One pole position. He is formula ones a 106 pollster, I think. What do we refer to Russell as now? Because he's not a Formula One race winner, even though he's won a Formula One race, is he? So I could still, I could still be yoked about that, but that's only if you press me Luke. You can be explored that and I did see I think the BBC ran their flash that came up on the app said George Russell wins first Formula One race and it's like technically yes, but also no. So it's an interesting one, isn't it? I think it's something that I think the stat gurus will be definitely digging into at some point. What do we call draw Russell? Do you know that I guess he did? He did win the race. You know that will be causing some consternation in a pub quiz ten years from now. Oh, there will be a way to draw Russell's score his first F one race win. Would this be counted or not? I will be the man up at the counter saying, now you gotta count interlagos 2022, but anyway, it's not about our future pub quiz success. It's, of course, about George Russell, a really brilliant display from him and Mercedes today. I think that the scene came into this weekend, maybe not expecting to be as competitive as it was in Mexico. I think it thought that it might be a little bit of a step back, but the car really seems come alive in the sprint race. We saw that with Lewis Hamilton as well, fighting his way up to third place. But I think the real key point was the fight between Russell and Verstappen. We know that split entire strategy was key and we'll get onto that. But Matt, what did you make of Russell's racecraft going wheel to wheel with Verstappen? We know how trick it can be at times. We saw at that very corner last year when it was Verstappen and Hamilton going wheel to wheel fighting for the title. Just what can happen. But it really seemed like Verstappen was defending so, so well into that corner, and it took Russell three bites of the cherry, but he finally got the move done. Exactly, it's sort of put me in mind of those Bahrain Saudi Arabia contests would look like where Verstappen very much seemed to be learning what to do. That's not to imply that he was green going into it, but you know, he worked out right if Russia's going to place his car there. And get good drive, then I've left myself vulnerable. So next up, I need to position my car a wider angle to get a better line back line to defend and carry more speed out of that. So I thought that was really shrewd. Even though he was battling with a silver car and it wasn't Hamilton, I certainly felt that when Hamilton came along and they were battling there and I was sort of more clenched, I suppose for that battle than I was for Russell, but this is really hard proper stuff going to town. And to throw it back to your opening question, was this the best sprint race? The Hamilton Verstappen battle at Silverstone was so short lived. This was three laps and but stretched over four laps we even had one lap off if you like. It was a nice break. And also, that's just talking about the main climaxes page. We could also discuss the opening couple of laps where Russell really sort of made Verstappen sweat and it looked like once Verstappen got his medium tyres up to temperature. That was sort of the battle for second, but effectively the wind even though Kevin Magnussen was still there or there about. So it looked like that one was done. But the fact it sort of then had this crescendo. It was brilliant and I thought both drivers, particularly as we've got from lower down the grid some cases of where it didn't go well, they executed their will to wheel battle perfect. That is distilled F one and the highlights were always exactly what you want
Blake Masters: Fighting Mark Kelly on the Debate Stage
"How did your debate go if much of the nation may not have been able to see it Blake masters Well I think it went pretty well for us on the Republican side Not even the fake news left wing media could pretend that Mark Kelly won that debate That's how one sided it was Mark Kelly as we discussed he lies in his television ads right But there's no one to fight back in a TV ad Well I was there to fight back on the debate stage And so Mark Kelly literally tried to say hey I've been focused on the border since day one I've done all that one person can to secure the border And at first Mark I got to tell you that made me upset because he was just lying But then I realized he was walking into a trap And so I said oh really senator Well if that's the best you can do I think you should resign Because you must be the worst and most ineffective senator of all time It didn't work The border is wide open So I think we put them on the ropes a little bit And how could he defend his votes His agenda It's Biden's agenda and it's indefensible How's your ground game look out there Oh it's great Between us and allied outside groups we've knocked over 600,000 doors in Arizona mostly in Maricopa County and pima county We have grassroots energy Look at the rallies that carry Lake are fantastic gubernatorial nominee and a higher doing We're drawing hundreds of people Sometimes thousands of people you look at a Mark Kelly rally or a Katie Hobbs rally she's the horrible candidate for governor here They can't even get 50 people in a room There's no energy on their side And that's why I think if we work hard and sprint and just really play that ground game that grassroots for the next 20 days I think we win this thing
Kris Kobach: Violent Crimes Rise in Kansas
"Of a better person to be running for attorney general right now than you, Chris. You have a very long and storied career in defending law enforcement and Law & Order. Not just in Kansas, but really across America. How's the campaign going for you? The campaign's going pretty well. We are obviously, as you mentioned, 19 days away, the polls have me ahead. Slightly by a few percentage points, but it's always better to be ahead by a significant number than by a close race. So we're sprinting all the way to the end. And again, with the Law & Order being front and center in so many of these races around the nation, this is a big deal, and I'm curious about their in Kansas. Have you guys seen the rise the uptick in crime that so many other people have seen around the nation? We have all of our crime statistics are up just about every violent crime is. There are a few categories of crime that are not up. But yes, we have seen a significant increase in violent crimes, significant increase in car thefts, consistent with the national pattern. And of course, the big increase is in fentanyl deaths. We have over 500 fentanyl deaths since 2015 and the number just keeps on climbing and one thing I've done is a candidate for attorney general is outlined some specific things we can do to actually deter the dealing fentanyl. So and as a result, a lot of sheriffs have endorsed me and I think we've got a pretty good plan.

Remembering Playing Golf in a Nuclear Missile Alert
"That was the year, that was the year that everybody thought we were going to die because they sent the nuclear missile from North Korea. You remember that? I was unbelievable. So I was staying out in ease Tom Lulu with one of my original backers. And we're saying out there and we get this so I have a leap tea time. It comes in the morning and we're saying another player harkens and his wife and a lot of weights up. There's like is this man like dude nothing like over go downstairs and it's like not not fun downstairs like the 11 cup of coffee like all right one I don't think it's happening because just like what America just shoot to sing down like if we know what's coming like, I don't know I believe in America so much like I think it would just shoot this thing down and be fun. Okay and then we're staying with this. My backer very wealthy individual. He's like, oh, we'll describe a fucking bone. Not gonna leave and it'll be fine. So now we're fine. But then it was like, okay, well, if we're why are we drinking coffee at 8 a.m.? We're really going down. Why don't we grab some bottles of booze and get after the safe lot three hours and really enjoy our time? That's where I was. That's a hell of a deal. It was terrifying. Honestly, we were staying there on site and that was the first time that year that I was on the final group on a Saturday. And I was playing with Brian harman and Zach Johnson later, like 2 o'clock, whatever's late. And I played my ass off the first two days, and then sure enough, the one time I get in the final group, the world's gonna end and there's a new coming. So this nukes coming from North Korea and you remember the sirens that went off in Honolulu. They started. I was part of outside of town. I didn't know anything was happening now, but it really according to the hotels. It was mayhem. So you missed all of the craziness. I was down there, I was down there, they had like a little player breakfast thing in the hotel set up. I was down there just getting some coffee, and then I started hearing this siren. It was that. And then I looked out the window and you know they had the dolphin area, whatever. And then people started running, like sprinting, like old people, old fat people started running spreading in all of them where I was like, what the hell is going on? What the hell's going on? Like, you don't see old sad people running around all the time. And then people started running by me and then somebody said, there's a nuclear missile coming this way. And then the loudspeaker said, you know, emergency emergency, take over ears, nuclear missile, headed this way, and I was like, what the hell?

Talk a little bit about what you just accomplished, the journey you were on, and let's talk a little bit about Mark Kelly and how people can help you. Yeah, thank you. Feeling great, you know, we put in over a year of hard work. Like I must have met tens of thousands of Arizona voters and man, it was an honor and I had the time of my life and the great news is, you know, we don't have to stop. We just get to keep sprinting all the way through November 8th. Now it's just me and Mark Kelly and as you and I discussed, this Senate race is probably the most important country. And so it's going to be an honor and a privilege to expose Mark Kelly's left wing track record. And when I just tell the truth about him, they're lying about me already, of course. But when I just tell the truth about Mark Kelly and how he's just helped Biden accomplish all of this chaos and destruction, we're going to win this race. I love it. So Blake, you ran a phenomenal race just for everyone to understand Blake has never served in office before. He was significantly outspent by competitors. Other people had statewide elected office. And you ran a really honorable race Blake, honestly. You didn't get down in the gutter. You responded fire with fire if they attacked you directly, but you really kind of took the high road. Can you just talk a little bit about that? You were smeared and slandered. I endorsed you personally. I've known you for a long time. Turning point action did. But I was super motivated by some of the smears that came after you, but you just kept on with the high road. That was really interesting for me to see just talk a little bit about that. Yeah, thank you. And you know, I told my wife at the beginning of the race, I would not run negative attack ads. I don't believe in it. First of all, it's not my character. It's not what I think is a moral to do. But second, it doesn't work. People don't want that. People are tired of that madness. You know, things don't work right now in this country. We're going in the wrong direction. So why not use a candidacy an opportunity to talk about policy? And here's what's gone wrong. Here's what we need to do. Yes. And I've stayed focused on the issues talking about that wide open border, how we need to secure it, talking about the crazy Democrat inflation. Talking about the indoctrination in schools that the left is trying to push on our kids. And so we just stay laser focused on a positive message. Turns out people like that.
A Battleground Election-Eve Update From Arizona With Blake Masters
"Am joined by the man who will be the nominee for the Republican Party, Blake masters, the Arizona primaries tomorrow Blake. Welcome back. Great to see you. Thanks for having me back. And you want to say that we don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves. But voting is 24 hours away from polls closing. I have 36 hours. How do you feel about the race? Feeling pretty good. You know, every major poll shows me up kind of by a lot actually, but we believe the polls we also don't trust them. You know, I am sprinting to the finish line. You and I are doing an event here tonight today at 4 p.m. in Phoenix. I have an event after that. Some stuff going on tomorrow. So we're sprinting through the finish line. And so the race, I think the primary is basically. I think you're going to be the nominee, but we have to can't take anything granted. You got to get through it. That's right. And so but you're coming up against Mark Kelly, who is super well funded. Now, Blake, do you feel as if some Republicans have an attitude that a red wave is inevitable and that we have a lot more work than I think they're willing to admit that there might be a complacency spirit. That's right. And I'm learning every group that I speak to about this exactly. It's like, yeah, God willing we're going to have a red tsunami, right? More than just a red wave. But paradoxically, you can't take that for granted because if you think there's going to be a red wave, well maybe you'll sit on the couch and you won't do the hard work that we need to manufacture that red wave. So we need to act like the underdog, we need to know that this election is existential. And we can't get complacent. But if we don't, we'll crush it.
The Broncos Need Williams and Jeudy to Be Young Stars
"Cecil lammy wrote in his mile high Monday piece, the Broncos need javonte Williams and Jerry Judy to be stars stink. Stars. Yeah, well, I think the javonte Williams is. I mean, nobody broke more tackles than he did last year. The guy is efficient in the passing game, blitz pick up, can catch the ball to the backfield and we know what kind of runner he is. So I think that guy has already put the league on notice as far as stardom is concerned. Jerry Judy is a bigger question mark. Yep. Just a bigger. You got to be productive. And you got to stay healthy, which is a skill. You gotta produce even when you don't feel great and production has been in issue. So I mean, you can be, you can tweet out that I just guess I got my sprints in today and all that garbage, but bottom line you have to be productive. And obviously with a quarterback situation that we have now compared to what we've had with Jerry Judy, there are no more excuses. You can't, if Jerry Judy is in productive now, you can't say, well, I mean, look at the quarterback situation. Look at the coordinator situation. Look at what was going on. Now is the time and this is the kind of rubber meets the road place for Jerry Judy and his
"sprint" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Technically he drops down to 13th. Hindsight and if you can rewind time says that Paul Pierre gasly, who finished 11th in Q two, therefore he was the one to miss out on the Q three spot. He should have been in Q three in Paris should have been out in Q two finishing 13th, but they didn't have the information. They didn't have it everything sorted to hand at that point in time, and that's why we're talking hours after qualifying about Perez dropping broken basically half a grid spot and everyone in that gap going up a space. It does sound confusing. It does sound sort of you could say peak F one over complicating it, but there is a sort of a reason behind it in terms of where they were looking for the track limits and unfortunately an area that they weren't looking at for that instant sort of lap time deletion whilst qualifying is going on is where Perez fell foul. So yes, it's one of those unfortunate ones. I wouldn't say I'm sort of defending the rule makers or how they came to their decision, but they sort of didn't have the full facts at the time, therefore had to do it after qualifying, and that's why we're in this situation. But yeah, as you say, the bottom line is Perez will start the sprint, so not the full grand Prius. I know that the sprint race from 13th and everyone in between that gap goes up a spot. But of course, like you say, if he gains paces in the sprint race, he can end up back and forth. For the Grand Prix, which would be the massive irony if something like that would happen, which isn't too far off the world to possibility, given the pace he's got in that car. Yeah, and the car looks great. I have the FIA bulletin here. Thank you for sending that on. It says the team made the point that they took both risk and expended resources to compete in Q three. The stewards accept this point, however, in assessing a penalty after a recession, this is no different than any other situation. The usual penalty in deleting the lap time concerned and the stewards order the same penalty. Here, however, as a consequence, the driver would not have proceeded into Q three and therefore, in fairness to the other competitors, the stewards order that all lap times for Q three for the driver are also deleted. So that is their in their own words, their logic. We've seen this over the years in Formula One, you get that time between Q one and Q two or Q two Q three. They have a look at it. And if they can't identify it, then hard luck, right? Over the years, it's been like, well, that's obviously not fair. That person was blocked or impeded. And if it's not resolved in that gap, and that driver isn't given the penalty and then they can test that session, we've seen it time and time again, you just get lucky. Or you get unlucky in Formula One, whereas this is one of the first times I can remember where they've gone back and gone. No, no, no. We are inventing our own time machine to put things how we think they should be. Which I agree with you. Is P F one, like it's just, it's a little bit weird. And it doesn't do a huge amount for the fans. When they turn on their TV on Saturday. The fans that are watching on television, the fans that were there at the track. Would have gone, yeah, home or whatever, believing that Perez was fourth. Now, okay, Perez being in fourth is not exactly a headline factor. But it's very easy and very simple to say the poll sitter could have been in this situation. Whoever that may have been. And that just changes the whole story when it's quite easily to have quite easy to avoid. And that's the sort of problem that they keep finding themselves in. But on the other hand, rules are rules and they did apply them as accurately as they could. Okay. George Russell lines up forth in the Mercedes because he put in a good time before shunting, followed by Esteban ocon in the first of the alpines and a brilliant result for the two Haas drivers lining up now in 6th and 7th, doing some very quick mental arithmetic. On my notes that I've written. And Magnussen pipping Schumacher, but that's stunning we'll talk about in a minute. Fernando Alonso, second Alpine in 8th, followed by Lewis Hamilton, who was bottom of Q three, get bumped up, and Pierre gasly is in tenth, followed by Alban Bottas, Perez in 13th. Tsunoda and Lando, who at one point was running 8th early on in qualifying and had a shocker. Along with teammate Ricardo in 16th, stroll, Joe Latifi, Vettel lines up last, again, track limits catching out Sebastian Vettel. Where should we go next? Let's talk about the Mercedes crashes, two separate incidents, wiping out Russell and Hamilton, like I say Russell had a good time on the board, so starting up on the second row, which is brilliant. We should talk about, well, first of all, Hamilton brought out the red flags, about 5 and a half minutes to go. He ran into the barrier at turn 7. Talk us through this. Yeah, so, a very uncharacteristic error you could say from how it's and he did say sort of after qualifying, he partly held his hands up, but also wasn't really sure what happened. He lost the rear of the car going through this high speed corner and it is one of those where as soon as you lose it, well, you're on a one way ticket to hit hit in the barriers and I remember not so many years ago, Bottas did it in a Mercedes in a very similar situation. So it's not impossible to do. Many will do it after and since. But yeah, I think just it would be interesting to see what the Mercedes Benz Dave and how they analyze their qualifying because naturally their drivers will push harder in Q three. They seem to believe in and to be fair the pace in practice did show it that if they completed their lamps and didn't sort of have the issues that they came into a Q three, they would have been there or there about knocking on the door of the top three. And I think that's basically what they were going for the car is inherently a bit twitchy a bit nervous and we've seen this whether it's the porpoise singing the corners that unsettle the drivers or if it was just a gust of wind catching the car and putting them out. But they were pushing and on the limit. As you would expect in Q three because it will qualify because that's the time you do it of all the entire weekend. But they seem to find that edge where when you go over it, well, that's the consequence of it. Whereas I think you could say because they have the faster package, they have to take air versus a slightly less risk in terms of if you were the rebel or the Ferrari drivers. So a combination of errors and issues, I think, have hit both Mercedes drivers and it's very rare to see that, to be honest, but that was it. Similar sorts of crashes, similar sorts of situations for both Hamilton and Russell like you say, if anything Russell got slightly lucky, you could say, because as you say, he got a lap time in that was good enough for 5th anyway, and he was basically going on his final run in Q three. And with Paris's penalty, it's put him forth.
What a Disappointment Rep. Peter Meijer Turned Out to Be
"Couple summers ago and turning point action was starting a series of super Saturdays, turning point action did a series of door knocking, campaigns across America, organized by the great Tyler Boyer and the whole turning point action team separate from the educational ventures of turning point USA. So I remember I was in Chicago and I drove to Grand Rapids, Michigan. That's not an easy drive for those of you that have done it throughout the night because the next morning we are starting our door knocking for a certain candidate in western Michigan. I got up very early and rally the troops and told everybody that in western Michigan, we need to put our forces together to go get a certain person elected by the name of Peter Meyer. Now mind you, I don't know why we endorsed Peter Meyer largely because I thought it was a flip district or something like that, a way to kind of gain ground. But what an incredible disappointment and let down. Peter Meyer in western Michigan has become. He has become a camera seeking attention grabbing self righteous congressman who voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump was like one of the first things he did right out of the gate. He sprints to try to go on cable television at every single corner imaginable. And he's someone I have very little respect for. And he's got to go and he's got to go right now. And there is a great candidate running
"sprint" Discussed on Wisdom From The Top
"sprint" Discussed on Wisdom From The Top
"Do you remember life before cell phones? I remember in the mid 90s when I was backpacking around Eastern Europe, the only way I could talk to my parents was once a week on a payphone. That was it, that was my only lifeline to the rest of the world. But today, of course, practically every single person you know owns a cell phone. And more than three out of four Americans use a smartphone. And because it's such a fixture in our everyday lives, we hardly ever think about the massive industry that pours billions of dollars to make this technology possible, or the fact that they wage intense battle over every single subscriber. And a big reason why is because in that industry, they're just a handful of big players. You've got AT&T, Verizon, T mobile, and sprint. And sprint actually traces its roots all the way back to the 1860s to the southern Pacific railroad. At some point, the railroad got into the telegraph business and started to trace telegraph wire along thousands of miles of railroad tracks, and then in the 1970s, the railroad decided to start using its telegraph lines for long distance calls, and the acronym sprint was born. It actually stands for southern Pacific railroad internal networking telephony. So fast forward to the early 2000s, and the dawn of widespread access to cell phones, and the race for subscribers. And sprint was in third place, trailing pretty far behind AT&T and Verizon. And then, in 2004, the company announced a game changing move, a merger, with number 5, next hell for $35 billion. Now, this all sounded like the perfect marriage. One company with one combined network and subscriber base. But then, nothing went according to plan. The merger turned out to be a disastrous move, and by December 2007, sprint Nextel was months away from bankruptcy. And that's when telecommunications veteran Dan Hesse stepped in as CEO. But Dan actually started his career, working for sprint's archrival AT&T back in the mid 70s. As an intern. I was in graduate business school. And I needed a really good, solid business internship. If I wanted to get a good job when I got out of my MBA program and the best program in the country, leadership, internship program was at AT&T. So I actually asked my older sister to go over to the Harvard Business school and just go into the placement office and just start taking things and send them to me. So I saw this application for AT&T sent it in and at the time they only interviewed at Wharton at Harvard. So when the recruiter at AT&T saw this resume attached from this kid from Cornell, he was very curious how the heck did this Cornell kid get ahold of this application. So he called me. And I told him, I asked my sister to go over to Harvard, I figured there would be more opportunities over there. And he loved it. And he goes, listen, I'm just going to be a plane ticket, waiting for you tomorrow morning. I want you to come down and meet me. We're going to interview you. We'd like to take a good look at you. And I ended up getting the internship. So this is 1975. Describe what AT&T was like then. People forget what an innovation engine AT&T was back then. I mean, it was founded by an inventor. Alexander Graham bell. And I had like 7 Nobel Prize winners at Bell Labs. It was generating multiple patents every single day. It just outcompeted everyone. Yeah, I mean, AT&T was like the top dog, right? This is like the equivalent of working for IBM at the time. Oh yes, it was the most widely held stock like it had in my highest market cap in the world. It was a, it was the blue chip of blue chips. And you worked your way up, right? I mean, you started to get leadership jobs. I did. And one of the great things about the managerial development program at AT&T was you would get moved to different jobs every 12 to 24 months to learn a different part of the business because as you moved up, they wanted people to really understand the industry and the business. But they wanted to make sure that you understood leadership. So you would work for a boss who was considered a good leader if you were somebody with high potential because that's the best way to learn leadership. And you can read all the leadership books you want, but why looked at how do they do that? How do they get everybody to want to walk through a wall for them? How do they create great teams? So I started the international department. With nobody working for me, but then with each successive job, who did the marketing sales, operations, engineering, strategic planning, wireless, and what have you, and by the time I was 31 32, I had a couple thousand people working for me. But by the time I was 37, I had 10,000 people working for me. Wow. So I guess around 97, you become the head, the CEO of AT&T wireless. That's correct. And this is at a time when cell phones were still predominantly used by business people and people with money. It wasn't like now where everyone had one. And was it an article of faith that wireless was the future? At that time, 1997 was where wireless had traditionally in the networks that were built were all analog and analog in industry parlay as one G now people talk about four G one G was analog two G was when we began to go digital and the acronyms like GSM and CDMA came in. And that's when you could begin to send text messages. So 97 was right at that period where for the first time, we were moving to it being more than just voice telephone calls and also becoming more affordable up until that time. If you had a cell phone and let's say I'm I live in Seattle and I'm making a local call, it's a sense a minute. I'm in Seattle and I make a long distance call. It's be sent a minute. I'm traveling to New York. I make a local call. That's C cents a minute. I'm in New York. I make a long distance call. That's decent cemented, extremely complex. And then if I'm roaming and off my carrier's network, it's extremely expensive to make any call. You had no idea what your Bill was going to be until the end of the month. The real power of wireless was to be mobile. But it penalized you for actually taking the phone on the road because it was so expensive. You had to use your calling card to go to a pay phone or your hotel. And so in 1998, when I was at AT&T wireless, we launched this thing called digital one rate..
David McCormick Gives an Update on His Campaign in Pennsylvania
"Where do things stand Hey Mark how are you Thanks for having me You bet Thank you It's a dead sprint you know It's 6 days to go And you can feel it People told me that Pennsylvania sort of finishes late and you can feel there's about 20% of the voters still deciding it can feel people focus I've been driving across the state today I've done 5 or 6 stops And listen there people are mad about the direction of the country They're scared about the American Dream slipping away They're pissed off about inflation and gas prices and fentanyl In our great Tom wall at the Pennsylvania and they're looking for a fighter that's going to go to Washington and push back on this crazy weakness and weakness And so it's a tight race in the polling It looks very close among myself and memorizing Kathy Barnett And the race is going to be decided in the next 6 days So it's exciting and I feel like I'm getting good momentum but it's all about execution

Charlie Is Live on the Campaign Trail for J.D. Vance
"Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. This is producer Andrew colvert filling in for the one and only Charlie Kirk. But I have a great surprise for you. Even though he can't make the entire show today, we do have him on the line. He is criss-crossing the state of Ohio right now with JD Vance. So without further ado, we've got a lot of show to cover, but I wanted to bring Charlie Kirk himself in right here at the top of the hour. Charlie, welcome to your own show. I'm honored to be a guest on my own show. And thank you, Andrew. And I wanted to call in just for a couple of minutes here. I'm actually on the road. We're about to be in Dublin, Ohio. I'm here with JD Vance and senator Josh hawley. It's the last sprint before. What is actually turning out to be one of the most expensive primary races in our country's history, JD is the FrontRunner here. He's got president Trump's endorsement. And it's been really interesting, you know, barnstorming the state kind of learning where the Republican Party is. And this really is kind of a test for what kind of Republican Party do we want? Do we want to kind of the same old kind of Bush and Cheney Republican Party or do we want to go in a direction of a party that will defend our manufacturing and put tariffs on China and restrict immigration and the people of Ohio are resonating with that message. And so, you know, it's been a long slog. It's been a pretty contested primary, but JD is really pulling away and just for all of our Ohio listeners here. I'm completely and totally enthusiastic. Enthusiastically behind JD and we need people to show up in big numbers
Pennsylvania Republican Senate Candidate Makes Closing Pitch
"Were. So David, we're in the closing sprint. You're my last Pennsylvania Senate candidate to talk to you before the voting is underway. I think absentee. How does the campaign look to you and what's your closing kick message before I turn it over to Ed? You know, it's, it feels good to me. It's going to be very close. The polling has the memoized and I in a tie. And the 30% of the voters are undecided. And so the closing pitch for me is listen. This is shouldn't be more important. This is this race will determine what conservative goes to Washington to represent Pennsylvania, whether we have someone who can fight for the key issues that Pennsylvania care about. And also someone who doesn't need on the job training. And so I'm presenting myself as a guy who's battle tested and in the military and combat created jobs in Pennsylvania and someone who's Pennsylvania. Yeah, I grew up in Pennsylvania. I'm 7th generation Pennsylvania. And someone who's a real America first conservative. And I put America first from the time I joined the army at 18.
"sprint" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Over the weekend is getting further and further away from Ferrari and Red Bull, they're not developing, and as we had this conversation, yes, I think. The narrative of the press conference change, where it's not like come on boys and girls where we're so close, just dig deep and we can get there. It's now, yeah, we are making mistakes and it's that's just a bit of a nuance, but it has changed it slightly more pessimistic and it stemmed all the way through from FP one into qualifying sprint race and a lot of it is, you know, the qualifying pace was off because I think Mercedes were really hurt by the cooler tyre blankets and I say that because they've dropped to think 30° to 70° now. And they were coming out in qualifying in sort of wet to dry conditions and really struggling to sort of get the heat into their tyres. That third group take laps and laps and laps to come through. And I think that's another reason why we saw 5 red flags. So I hope I'm not trespassing on what Johnny and I was talking about in the podcast and qualifying. But why we saw so many red flags because they want particularly treacherous conditions, but their exaggerated by that cycle. And Mercedes in the company of Al fatori and Williams for struggling particularly with that and that's not company they're used to they're used to keeping. So they've got fundamental problems. The porpoise thing is still here and now they've got a lack of down force. So it seems like the list of problems or some of them are staying the same in a porpoise and they've not cracked that. Some of it and it still worsened Ferrari to a point where Ferrari can live with porpoises and still be quick, Mercedes can't. They're losing down force. The super times aren't good for them and now morale is taping a dip as well. And I know our colleague John is asked to tote this evening about that clip that we've seen of Hamilton and wolf getting a bit animated and he was saying, you know, it was just because we're both frustrated, we're coming at this from the same place we're so passionate. But these are things we haven't really been seeing. So yeah, I think it's the longest they've gone. So we know they've won 7, 7 drivers drivers titles 8 construction titles in a row. But I think the more sort of revealing or headline grabbing status, we have to go back to 2011 to where there were four rounds into a season hunt had a pole or a win. Wow, that is that I wasn't actually aware of, but yeah, and obviously yesterday in qualifying was the first time since Japan 2012, they hadn't had a car getting Q three as well. So yeah, it's been a pretty, it's been a pretty tough start to the year for Mercedes. Lewis Hamilton spoke this evening. He said that the worst car of his career he always regards to be the 2009 McLaren, obviously his title defense was in tatters pretty much from day one, but and he said, that is still the worst. He said this one is a far off, but there is at least potential he sees in it, but the battle for Mercedes is look, if you're a second off Red Bull and Ferrari right now, you need to be finding a second and a half, something like that to not only catch them and overtake them, but then start to build the kind of points buffer that will get you into any kind of title fight. So yeah, another difficult day for Mercedes and I think it's looking like it's going to be a pretty tricky season for them. Other notable stories think from the spin race we saw McLaren, they did add a pretty good day, Landon Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, 5th and 6th. Urban spoke to them after after the session and they said, look, we don't want to sort of say we are the third fastest team because we're not like it is pretty close at the moment, but it was a good sign for them, particularly given both teams. Sorry, both Norris and Ricciardo had a lack of running in FP two due to issues this morning, Ricardo didn't run at all. He said there's still half step behind going into the race, but they should be able to run pretty well from the third row of the grid. Kevin Magnussen obviously qualified that brilliant fourth for Haas. He dropped to 8th in the sprint race and that was all down to tire choice. They opted for the mediums instead of the softs and Magnus said the moment he found out that everyone else was on soft sea. He felt pretty nervous, he knew what was coming. So yeah, not exactly what they would have wanted, but he said, look, we still scored a point, and if you just said to us, we're going to start the race mate place and I would have taken that. So definitely some silver linings there. I think finishing off, the sprint race format, this is the fourth edition of it. For me, I thought this was the best sprint so far and a lot of people fought over Brazil 2021 and Hampton's amazing charge through the field, which, to me, don't get me wrong, is one of the finest Grand Prix performances I've ever seen. But this, I just thought I had a bit more action throughout the film. I know DRS was very, very powerful, but it felt like it felt really exciting. And yeah, it was enjoyable. I know sprints aren't. Everybody's cup of tea. What's Matt, what's your take on the sprints? How do you see them? How did you rate today's spring race? Comfortably the best one we've had, which is surprising, because on paper, when imola was a narcissist, why enough are they, you know, sprints are struggling as is to capture hearts and minds. So you put it at a track where you're taking is really difficult. Certainly for, you know, we've got 19 corners here and only one of them in umbrella is a viable overtaking spot. So for Ross broad he's trying to sell this idea. Why are you sort of exposing yourself like that? And yet we've had a really good one and that is because yes, some cars qualified out of sequence because of The Rain and slippery conditions. And it's also because we've got new cars, slipstream better and so that has exaggerated the already quite powerful DRS effect here. But there's always going to be changing circumstances. And I don't think it's always wise to sit back and go, well, if you take out that that and that had been really boring, because it wasn't. And then you lose the enjoyment. And I think we had a good one. And now there are lots of drama and yes, I'm slightly skewed because we were on the grid and with the Ferrari fans and stuff it was really powerful. There was excitement and so perhaps we like to even more because of that, but I still think I still think it held up. I know not everyone tuning in will be lap charting or making notes, but certainly it was 21 laps and I would like a bit more breeding space in the middle to tighten up some of my paragraphs before focusing on an exchange of arrays. So I think there's certainly like, again, it's that thing of you can have an embarrassment of riches as a result of this Netflix effect or whatever where you want things to happen now now now now, but that's not always the way it happens and it's better to preserve the good clean moves we had into tamburello rather than becoming sort of BTCC shunt fest because people are sort of very zealous and they want too much action. It's all made a bit more artificial. I think that got quite Michael massee. That was a motor race. I know, I know, I can resist it. But that was a good race. I think Australia, the way I looked at that was anything above Australia's, slam dunk a good race, anything below Australia, possibly could be accused of being a bit boring. I know it was a sprint, not a Grand Prix, but I thought we're above that threshold, so by my book, good race. It was indeed a motor race. There was actually there were a few fans, as you said, were absolutely fantastic. So there are a few really fun flags, one of them was it was the picture of toto. I think with the no no Mikey, this is not right. Quote over it. There was another flag that had a heights smooth operator on a bottle of ketchup, which was quite cool. Another with Charles Leclerc has Jesus, which I think tells you how the Ferrari fans do regard him. The grid yeah, it was your first grid as well as thank you..
"sprint" Discussed on The Lead
"Off a really rough 91 last season? Yeah, sales zucchini helps a lot and I don't think most of us had the cubs as the likely landing spot for them. So a little background 27 year old outfielder say a Suzuki he tore up the npb, the top pro league in Japan. And they signed him to a 5 year deal with 85 million. And I think a lot of people had him going to the Red Sox. A lot of people had him going to the Giants. But now here come the cubs who sign Marcus stroman, the pitcher who was with the mets last year, they signed him before the lockout started and it got people thinking, maybe they aren't really going through such a rebuild. They have so many young players that are sort of figuring things out now. And assigning like stroman woke people up in a silent like Suzuki has to really be sounding alarm bells within the NL central with a Cardinals with a brewer's that the cubs aren't playing around. They plan to contend sooner than later, which really wasn't what we expected coming out of October last year. So keeping it in the national league, the Dodgers are the betting favorites to win the World Series. But they did lose one of their best hitters shortstop Corey Seager. He signed a massive deal with the rangers. For quarry Seeger and he is dead headed down to Texas. But knowing LA in the way they operate as we're talking to you on Wednesday evening, should we be sitting here waiting for the news that Freddie Freeman or another big name is headed their way any minute or any day now? I would say yes. I mean, look at even what happened with Corey Seager, they had already prepared for that, picking up Trey Turner at the deadline last year, along with Max Scherzer. So this is a team that has contingencies in place and is ready. Certainly to spend if Freddie Freeman doesn't land in Los Angeles now, I'd be pretty shocked. Of course, a week ago, I thought the braves would still do what it took to keep him. But I don't think there is a fish as big in this situation as the Dodgers and with Freddie from him being from California. It does seem like a really good fit. So the last two full regular seasons, nostalgia's team has won exactly a 106 games. Looking at this roster, does it have enough to push for 100 plus ones again? Do you see any real weaknesses here? No, especially if they sign Freddie Freeman, I feel pretty good about them in the hundred plus range again, which is really, really, really hard to do in baseball. Now, the division isn't getting any weaker. That's the one thing you have to take into consideration here. Last year we had the Giants and Dodgers both blow past a 105 wins. That's almost unheard of in this era. So maybe that knocks down the wind total a little bit, but you look at the rotation, they just brought back Clayton Kershaw, which isn't just a feel good move. They need starting pitching help. They're still going to have a good bullpen and the lineup across the board is really good. They brought by Chris Taylor as well. So I don't think there's any reason to be concerned about them. But if they add another piece, namely Freddie Freeman, you have to feel really, really good about where they are and that's the reason that they're going to be the betting favorite for the World Series. Well, in that same division, the rockies are definitely not the betting favorite for the World Series, but we're not going to tell them that because they signed 30 year old Chris Bryant reportedly to a 7 year $182 million deal on Wednesday. So Stephen, what was your reaction to this one? This is one that I don't know that I can make it make sense for both sides, but I certainly can from Chris Bryant's side. So this is a player who he has a rookie of the year an MVP in a World Series in the bag. And if he wants to go get the biggest pile of money being offered to him, go for it. He earned that right and maybe him more than most major leaguers if you remember the cubs committed an act of service time manipulation when he was a rookie calling him up just late enough in April of 2015 that long story short caused him to get to free agency this year instead of last year and cost him some money along the way. So if that guy wants to go get as much money as possible, he's earned that right. From the rocky side of things, it was just 13 months ago that they sent third baseman Nolan Arenado who is great to St. Louis and included. I think it was $52 million to help lessen the cost of his extension. That's not a team that's going for it. And then last year they failed to trade Trevor story so they got absolutely nothing back for him. And now the heap $26 million a year on Chris Bryant and listen, Brian is consistently a good player who can be great, but the rockets are so far from being a good baseball team and I'm just not sure why they started here. Keeping it in the NL west, the Padres got some absolutely brutal injury news this week. Dennis linn of the athletic coming up with Fernando tatis fractured his wrist during the off season AJ confirming that he's headed for surgery that could come with a recovery time of up to three months. Well, that's a fine how do you do? You come back. Now this is a team that has yet to really make a big splash coming off a disappointing 79 one season. And now their best player is more or less likely out half the year. Is this season potentially over for the Padres before it even started? They'd have to do something special at the top what they did last year. It was such a collapse down the stretch that earlier this week, Padres owner Peter seidler was asked about what happened at the end of last year when the Dodgers and giants just kind of blew away the Padres who fell out of the wild card conversation way earlier than expected..
Pastor Shawn Bolz on His New Book 'Encounter'
"Sean boltz welcome. I'm so glad to be here Eric. This is awesome. I'm not going to ask you to sprint, but I'd like to talk to you about a lot of stuff. You're somebody that I've followed you a little bit, and I thought when I heard that you had a book out, the book is called encounter that it would be great to have you on the program. So your pastor in Los Angeles, now a pastor in Los Angeles, but I actually do more TV ministry. I'm on TV and like you are and I do a lot of hosting of podcasts. And we're creating a conversation for what God is doing right now. It's so easy to see what he's not doing. So easy to see what people are doing wrong with the enemy's doing. But seeing what God is doing is really profound right now. That I know that is true. And it's one of the reasons I wanted you on the program because a lot of people wouldn't know that because if you look around, the news media, let's face it. They're not covering things as they are. That's putting it really mildly. And there are dramatic things. I just had dinner with Mario Morello the other day. And he started sharing things with me. And I said, why do most Americans have no idea that there's revival happening? Lives are being changed. You would just think it's hopelessness wherever you look. And in part, because of the hopelessness, it's driving some people to God. So there's a good side to the ugly. But so you're the host, I'm sorry, you're the host of a program, obviously, on TBN, but also your pasture of a church. And the title of your book, the new book that I want to talk to you about is called encounter. A spiritual perspective that will shape your faith for the coming move of God. What do you mean by that the coming move of God? Well, you know, the last time that Christianity moved forward in a major way in America was during a period called the Jesus people movement. It was the late 60s, early 70s. And we had about 18 million people get saved, not church centric around one church. But it started in Southern California, but it went all around the world. And it was reported by news media and on the cover of Time Magazine and all these places. And the least likely people group were the ones who were used to bring this, which was the hippie community. And so it's just really interesting how God used the least likely. But I believe we're facing another season where there's a move of God. And before that happened, there was about 15 years of darkness where there was moral decay and free love free drug culture, all these things started happening. People started leaving new care family, just like today, new Griffin was down to about 8% during those years just a few years. People start to leave kind of iniquity was the big thing. Inequity being a wrong mindset through the way we believe psychologically the way we believe kind of humanism was rampant. A lot of socialism was rampant. And then Jesus showed up, then the Holy Spirit came and just supernaturally brought his presence to the earth, and many people got saved. It was very easy. And I've talked to many pastors and I don't know if you know this, but 85% of senior pastors in America today were saved during that period of time, whether it was as a result of that revival, or just coincidence that it was that period of time. Oh, yeah. And a lot of the aging out now. It's a fact. You're

"24 laps up to P 5. Just talk us through that drive today because he was really, really on fine, fine form. He certainly was, he certainly was, you know, I think, I think the Mercedes advantage over the rest of the cars is in terms of all the other cars apart from Red Bull is massive here. There's no denying that, as I said earlier, that new engine will never have been given him a significant performance boost, but he still had to go and he said, you know, he still had to make things come to him. You know, into a certain degree, you do make your own luck in these scenarios. And he got stuck in. I mean, I think if you want to sum up just how good loose Hamilton's drive was today, look at his move on land own Norris. It's for what he can only get from that position. He can only get one spot higher, knowing, of course, that because he's going to drop back 5 more places from where he finishes tomorrow. So, you know, it was the move that decided whether he'd start tenth or start 11th. It's much more much in this. He's not really going to make a huge amount of difference tomorrow. But he still went for it. And it was the best move of all of them. There was a series of, you know, he has a great first lap as well. He charges through loads of different cars, and then it's DRS bars off the DRS pass. You know, it was like, oh, will he be able to get past Ricardo and Bottas got stuck in Mexico? Yes he was, did the same for Alonso veto ocon gazi look very, very easy, Leclair, and he finally caught him in Stamford. It was he was just gone. It was like the Ferrari wasn't even there. It was a minor inconvenience for Hamilton. That's how scintillating his charge was. But with Norris, you know, it was different. He was quite far back. He had that one opportunity, and he absolutely nailed it. Yeah, a brilliant drive from Lewis Hamilton. I think, in terms of my Grand Prix drive ratings, I have to do for every race. I mean, obviously, tomorrow, what happens tomorrow will have a big impact on things. But right now, it is the maximum ten, you know, he didn't have any impact on what that DRS was doing when it got damaged. He still tops qualifying and he did it absolutely the maximum he could do today. So yeah, what a fine performance from Hamilton. Absolutely. And, of course, we had the team radios after very, very happy, both toto and Bono jumping on the radio. You could tell how much it meant to them. But looking ahead to tomorrow, of course, it's the race. It's longer. We've already touched on the tires already. How do you expect that he will fare given that he's starting P ten and he is going to again have to do more of that making up positions. We know that the car is evidently strong here. But how easy do you think he will be able to do it tomorrow? And it's actually, you know, the full long race. Yeah, I mean, it will probably be a little bit harder to get through the field because I think I don't think we should underestimate just how much the drivers do that risk reward. Calculation in their heads when the sprint race because that's the reason why most of the spring racing Silverstone and most of the sprint race in Monza was pretty boring. And really, if Hamilton starts on poll, I think today would have been pretty boring as well. The drivers, they know why risk what happened between the Alfa Romeo drivers where one tiny touch spins can you like and down the way down the order? And that's going to make things much much harder for him tomorrow. So I think there was probably a certain amount of oh, we're not going to fight this Mercedes as hard as we can. They will probably also as much, much faster in any case. But you would think logically thinking that it will be a little bit more difficult tomorrow because drivers got nothing to lose. They've got no subsequent grid spot to worry about. But equally, the Mercedes performance of energy is so massive. I don't see any reason why he won't come through the field from tenth. I think the absolute minimum will be will be fourth place. I don't think science will be able to hold a whole period behind the duration of the Grand Prix tomorrow. And I think Hamilton will be assuming there's no unfortunate DNS for food crashes or through reliability problems. It would be the two Mercedes cars and the two Red Bull cars at the head of the order. In war order, I don't know, you would think again thinking logically, maybe Bottas versus Verstappen, where I think Bottas will have a much, much harder time, keeping Verstappen behind, especially when, you know, they're a bit pit stops in the race tomorrow. I think Red Bull will be able to be aiming to use the tactics there to try and get their driver ahead. Because it was getting stuck in that dirty air that was not and felt. That's why we didn't get a chance to make a move today. So it will be the exact the exact reverse in terms of Perez and Hamilton. I don't see any reason why Hamilton won't be able to at least get close to him to make himself a threat strategically potentially no position is out of the question for Louis. Hamilton, Samoa, judging by by what we saw today, however, I would expect that it would be more of a case of Verstappen versus bot ass and cam Perez keep Hamilton behind if you can't or maybe even if you can, maybe maybe maybe pairs is right with the top two. If he presumes assuming he gets past science quite quickly, tomorrow, because that's the reason why Paris ended up finishing so far back today was he couldn't pass science. So that's assuming that he does. But yeah, it's certainly going to be another interesting race tomorrow. It is, indeed, I'm really looking forward to it. The sprint got me excited for the full thing at tomorrow. But looking ahead to tomorrow's race, what do you think in terms of strategy and tire choices for the drivers? What do you reckon we will see? Yeah, I think it's going to be really interesting on the.

"After a dramatic Saturday in Brazil, Valtteri Bottas has beaten Max Verstappen to finish first, claiming pole position for the final F one sprint of the season. Carlos Sainz finished up third after overtaking both Perez and Verstappen on lap one. Before the sprint, we received the long awaited outcome from the stewards investigations, one inter Lewis Hamilton over a DRS infringement and a second investigation into Max Verstappen for a park family violation after he was seen touching Hamilton's rear wing at the end of yesterday's qualifying session. As a result, Lewis was disqualified from qualifying a session which he had sent the fastest lap in and as a result was due to start P one for today's sprint. But instead was required to start at the back of the grid P 20. Meanwhile, the satin was fined €50,000 for breaking park Fermi rules. Despite the P 20 start Hamilton was on fine form this afternoon and made his way up to P 5 in the 24 lap sprint, but we'll start pretend tomorrow as a result of his grid penalty for replacing his ICE. There is a lot to discuss today and I'm thankfully joined by Alex kellyn orcas or to support Grand Prix editor to discuss it all. Alex my first instinct is to get straight into the discussion about the sprint results, but I think that we should actually unpack this chronologically because yesterday, as we were signing off the podcast, we got the breaking news that Lewis was under investigation and then obviously everyone was awake. Anyone in the UK was awake for hours and hours. Refreshing, refreshing, refreshing, waiting for more news. Then we got the news that max was also under investigation and then we were also told that we wouldn't hear anything until this morning. Of course, we now have all of the outcomes of that. But can you just talk us through what we've had over the last 24 hours in terms of these investigations first with Lewis and then max maxis is a little simpler, I guess. Yeah, hello, Arianna and hello to the listeners. Yeah, it's been, well, what a 24 hours we've had. It's been packed with controversy. I mean, as if this, as if this ultra tight ultra competitive, sometimes ultra toxic title battle if you consider the two fan bases involved on social media, but anyway, yeah, it's just had it already didn't seem to need it, but it did. I mean, in terms of the investigations, they were absolutely warranted on both fronts of both Verstappen and Hamilton but yeah, you're right, I think approaching things chronologically probably a good idea considering it has a direct impact on the sprint race gradient race result after that. So yeah, with them with almost with, I think it's better to talk about Max Verstappen first because the actual the actual offense or the actual issue in terms of the two at stake. His occurred first in the he qualified second by Lewis Hamilton is comprehensively beaten four tenths of a second wow. What a magnificent performance by Lewis Hamilton, but what a massive gap he shows you how good the Mercedes was in those conditions, the sort of the cloud cover, the view if you think Matt yesterday and Friday qualifying and really hurts the Red Bull because not only is Mercedes rear tire or rear end weakness reduced in the cooler conditions, but actually the rep will understand a lot and especially when it's pushing hard, that was why Verstappen was saying, oh, my tires were overheating. That's why they're gone. You know, just exaggerates the gap between them plus the fact that we don't have that new internal combustion engine, which means he drops 5 places for tomorrow's race. That will have given him a bit of a boost Mercedes quite tight lipped on how much it does give Red Bull calculator about a couple of tenths per second. So yeah, Verstappen could have got closer and ideal conditions of Red Bull, but also things working well at Mercedes with that new engine. Also the fact Hamilton could well have been running in a higher power mode. You know, he's only a couple of races the end of the season now. The team has talked about that degradation occurring. That's why, you know, within the internal combustion engine, that's why it needs to keep replacing them. Well, you know, now he's got a bigger pool and less time to run. Maybe you can just push it that little bit harder. Who knows? But anyway, that's almost tangential to what happened in the second qualified second behind by that master and now gets out of his car, touches his own rear wing, then there's obviously the various fan videos and the onboard camera from philando Lonzo's car shows. He goes up and does exactly the same thing to Lewis Hamilton's car. Then he walks away and everything happens, plays out as expected as normal as there's no sign that anything is amiss until suddenly Lewis Hamilton is under investigation. For his car having failed the FIA's checks, post qualifying and specifically what that related to was the DRS and how much it's allowed to open. And when it is fully open, they test its twice when it's closed, it can only be super tough in my head and it's ten millimeters, the gap, the gap between the two planes when he's shot and then when it's open, it's a maximum of 85 millimeters, and they have this with various videos doing the rounds with these sort of circular flat circle probe that they use to force to try and force the probe or the circular bit at the end between the two bits of the rear wing when it's open. And if it can get through, then that's a breach of the rules because it's exactly at 85 millimeters. And that's a problem. There's a real big problem because if the wing is opening more than is allowed, there is a potential performance benefit..

"Yeah. Thank you so much to have so. Many questions are retract cycling. But you know. I'm gonna park a lot of them because i know full well. There are two very big. Our record attempts happening in october. Can't tell you who's doing them book. I think well. I'm gonna tell us it's Just loudon and don big and again. We expect no three. That's a third world. Yeah you've been to. There's another one. There is another one. Well alex it's going for it but it is a young for in september or december. I'm not. I'm not sure when it started going for his actually but we expect to see a drop in the women's our record from from just loud and so it's going to be really interesting. Don big not actually able to go for the the overall our record because he's not in the anti-doping world testing which you have to be in order to qualify. Stay that but he is trying to break the british record. That's going to be interesting but for now back to all points north so i was watching the whole weekend and it was a lot more exciting than it sounds. So we'll head back that and find out who wins the one thousand kilometers sprint. So it's monday morning now. And i've been watching all weekend on the all points. North tracker and every single rider has a dot and each has colored indicate their status whether that's green for moving orange first stationery whether they're fueling sleeping and grey means the right of scratched. Which is that. They've left the race. Unfortunately one of our pre race favorites nicky. Shaw has scratched for unknown reasons. So far her tracker shows that she's scratched at core bridge. But it's really fascinating. Kind of watching. The race developed vira dot and i wake up on saturday morning on sunday mornings and was tracking everybody through the late district and certain certain checkpoints ceremony ways. You can go honest a slate. Mine you go up through the lake district mapped keswick borrowdale raid and area quite well and i was looking at the dots and i saw one dot number fifty four just had off the langdale valley and i thought how dan road that read quite well and of course he then proceeded to go all the way up the langdale valley which is what i think is a bridal away but it's pretty rocky bridal away and it's also a long long way over you get to the top of the pass and then you have to go a very long way down the longstreth valley. Before you get to erode eventually embar. Dial i've been tracking them fifty four progress logan mills and. He's doing really really well. So i would love to catch up with him at the end and find out what's going on. But for the moment the main race seems to be between a number one. Pop polaski the winner from two thousand nineteen and number seventy seven bradley woodruff so these two riders both decided to go different ways. One clockwise one anti-clockwise around the route and at this point they both have one. Checkpoint laughed foul laskey. Who is the favourite has has more distance to go but his will be a lot flatter and a lot simpler as he's now heading towards badly and then from beverly sheffield. Weather rates are relatively flats and quite fast. Bradley would refuse heading to leeds pals monument which is near the top of lofthouse in the yorkshire dales national park. And then he's going to have to navigate his way by sheffield around leeds and wakefield which maybe much slower with traffic traffic lights etc. So it's gonna be an interesting day following following these dots trying to guesstimate what time they're going to be back at the hillians to and sheffield and i'm really enjoying it. It's three thirty on monday. Now the writers have been going for forty three and a half hours. Pretty much nonstop And the is a real sprint finish between bib number one pop laskey tip number seventy seven bradley woodruff so the birth coming from different directions. Powell is in google and Broadly zappin leads. It's really going to be so close. They've probably got about two and a half hours of writing left. I just can't call it here. it's going to be. But i'm really excited to keep watching those dots and get hillians with finish while i'm just leaving home. It's the last forty five. Maybe minutes of the race after one thousand is coming down to a sprint. Finish and it still too difficult towel. Who's going to win. So we're heading every haley now and hopefully. I'll update you about the helium cheat now. We're waiting for the first two finishes to come in both within the city of sheffield. It's absolutely nail biting. But in the meantime i'm here with bib number fifty eight. He's already backed because unfortunately had to scratch. Am i off. Could you just introduce yourself and then could you tell us the story if you race and what happened and why you had to scratch. So i'm vincent from belgium but i live in cambridge now and i think that's part of why i had to scratch because used to ride on flat and you saw yesterday after the night in yorkshire deal with the very very steep climbs. I felt that was giving a lot and then later in the day sunday my niece starting to be painful so i was trying to to keep moving on with and to reduce the pain by putting is and thank you leaders. It went fine and then it came back and then this morning it was just impossible to her so i was pushing my bike on the climbs and riding on flats on descend hoping. I don't know maybe pain will disappear. And then after i don't remember but maybe forty eight like that. I realized that i had still five k. To do so say you're only halfway through the race..

Now back at my hotel having having yet over decompress after considering the second as formula sprint race.

We hear people's frustration about the sprint race Sorry the driver topping qualifying on friday. Not getting the post that we hear that. Maybe that's something. They're look at changing says goods. Let's keep up the pressure if we can but yeah that's kind of what i'm feeding off the seconds but my sister not very much happened. Doesn't we talk about well. These calls are designed to you know to be competitive in nineteen minutes review if you just stopped the race before the first pit. Stop you expect you to be much action. particularly there's no chaos at the first corner was the safety car and you know what would have helped things ties. And under his stretch particularly the run starting in the mclaren. Say yeah. I think I think there's generally a feeling of more negatively towards it than there was a silverstein chesting very very interesting there now. Let's talk about the process day and as you said. He banked himself by himself slot yesterday in qualifying kept onto it today for the sprint but is going strip. Wait down because of changing engine. But it's been a really solid weekend for him and is sought to shame. The is not going to be able to convert on the race on sunday. I mean unless well who knows what could happen but at the moment is unlikely that know be able to bring heim victory as well. He's doing well though. We spoke yesterday with john as well. It seems like maybe the pressure on saturday of your future so of lifting off. Have you heard anything from him since the f. one sprint about why he is feeding say comfortable this weekend and so confident on the track. He didn't really touch on in the in the post race.

Tweet this is peak boundary. Batas astor to have been doing an amazing weekend and yet will get nothing from it. So far in this can come through and deliver an amazing result in the race tomorrow and i will say is. I spoke to mercedes earlier on today and they did confirm that he did get a heated. Get a an a A genuine performance at benefit from taking that new engine and bearing mind it was less than a tenth of a second the gap between himself and his teammate lewis hamilton in qualifying yesterday so while the team you know they weren't going to be putting an exact figure on it both has definitely benefited from from what happened there from from taking that that fresh engine however he still he's still delivered it he sportsperson. You can only play the circumstances in front of you really especially things like In qualifying and the race and so you and put us nowadays so absolutely fascinated him. Well done it's just going to be. I just faith what might happen tomorrow. In terms of we saw last year when he was down the order in that crazy. Italian grand prix. He didn't make any progress. There was able to and that was when they both had a massive car advantage over the rest of the field so as we saw. We've we've learned how much my sleigh after each back from his post as you said. Ariana couldn't get lenore soap. Not i think it's a slam dunk. That mercedes is going to make massive ground up tomorrow. Let's stay on the mercedes topic before we get to how they might fed. Tomorrow we dig into that but deepa lewis start today. What's happened now. What what went wrong. Because it was quite a poor start from him of course dropping right back down. The order losing that advanced. He had starting the p. To a lot people saying before you know given the bosses going to be dropping down the order anyway puts lewis in such a strong position on the team in quieter quite favorable position in terms of how they could play the sprint today. But lewis's star just really let him down. I guess he certainly did. It certainly did ambato st so of hints. That team orders were effective. Your mccarthy said possibly we would have done the swap because of the obvious situation bearing a referring to hamilton being in the top. Five max or stopping in the drivers championship. But yeah we've with. Winston stop basically said he was He was two millimeters too deep with the clutch padres es mistake of releasing higgins targets on the clutch. And it just goes we will spend you know. He launched okay. Attraction was was there seems to be but as soon as as soon as it came to to the it's been in the later phases. That's really what cost him and he was on the back for immediately at at this web. Of course some really Defend hard but fair against the landowners. Then he's got swamped ricardo. Who's coming by the starting mcgowan on the other side. Gase got by him as well So yeah i mean it could have been even worse. Radio you constantly doesn't enforce just tap. The left retire of avocados mclaren and break his front wing. Housing could well have ended up behind him. I may have got urban with get back by the. Yeah definitely as you said. We saw him defending a hard but fair against the cause around him. Do you think that in that position that he was in a part of him. It was probably thinking. Don't don't do anything to radical. Because of course you don't wanna risk damage getting coop. Any scraps expected to play a little bit safe. When you do have about solve star so that you can line up you know. People five as opposed to at the very back of the packing unit crashing out. Do you think any even goes into the drive as minds on a sprint. Light day or do you think as soon as is lights out that satan. And they're fighting that he go. I think we'd hamilton. Today was more than he had any other choice or anything there was. There was anything he could do. Just because of the nature of that rundown. Someone's i've been..

"Let's get back to the show next question we're still on the sprint train. This is a very sprint heavy episode. But like han his says. How to period is max velocity work of suing max. Philosophy sprint work. Once intensity is at the max and assisted or over speed is touched upon sporadically. Where do we go from there. Go from fly thirties to flying. Thirty five to forty s question mark we could increase volume of jumps Without increasing sprint volume go from five by forty meters to six to seven by forty meters. I'm very creative and very a lot. But this seems something that stays without consensus. Okay so when you ask me these questions. My mind is very I don't know say divergent in terms of thinking. So i'm probably going to give you something that might be a little bit different in some senses the word but i don't really think of this question in terms of linear volumes. So if i'm talking about how do i go throughout the training year period. max velocity. We're am i taking it. Well maybe i'll and i just wanna make this attracted field question. I know there's a lot of team sport. Conditioning coaches out. There who utilize like flying tens and things like that. And i think that's a good thing i think that's awesome and we've had like joel reinhard andrew cormier mirror talking about a feed the cats bay soccer training system or field hockey. Really cool stuff..

"And that's something that a daring bar has told to me as athletes. if you don't have the formation of the arch in step one or from the very start of the stance you're not gonna magically get it together in step one step two. It's not like you're gonna have arches that are very flat to the ground and they're not really active and then all the sudden you take a step and now they activate and suddenly you're going to be like really resilient and that's where again i think that a philosophy of sprinting or early few steps where it's like well it's just all about the muscle generating stiffness. Let's just train the muscle and and that muscle tendon unit. And then that's gonna build the stiffness but we We ignore joints and we ignore the arches of the foot and we ignore the sensory elements of the foot. That's going to be not maximally helpful for athletes. I believe we need to help them. Feel the feet and so for that working different hand positions can be helpful and working the starts barefoot could be helpful. I find that when athletes just want. They just switched from trainers to sprint spikes. They tend to have better foot action in the start and then when they're barefoot the foot. They're not going to be as fast because of the friction in the skin against the ground but the foot action gets even better. There's more sensation. If it's on a track they feel it but you can have athletes do things like holding pinkie toe pinkie finger up and that position can help lift the pinkie toe a little bit and get a little bit more arch activation. John garris when he was on the show was talking about different ham positions during wicket. Runs like spock hand..
"sprint" Discussed on Marketing Management and Money
"Okay this is going to be another one of our short discussions where we love to grab a business topic. Just give you something quick to chew on and some action steps. You can take in your business today. I want to talk specifically about a marketing sprint. That you can do a quick Marketing technique that is going to help boost your sales and kind of just get things going and get things moving for you and what this sprint is going to be. Specifically is a customer audit. This is a super simple marketing technique. It gets overlooked so many times. It's not hard to do. It almost always results in a nice little bump in sales and it's easy to do so customer audit. What we're gonna do is we're going to start by looking at all of our customers and we're gonna break them down in two lists of who has not purchased from us for a while and then quite simply put we're going to reach out to those people who haven't purchased from us in a while it really. Is that simple now. I'm gonna give you a little bit more specifics of some of the best practices that you can do with this but i want to talk about the concept behind this first second we all know that it is cheaper and easier to maintain a customer that it is to get a new customer but we tend to forget that customers who bought from years ago are still good customers now. Not all of them. Some of them have you know they've gone the way of the dodo. They're no longer even in business or you know they've found some other you know Some some other source to get their goods and services and they're not using you anymore. That's okay but many of these just kinda got busy. Think about it as an entrepreneur. You get busy you just sort of forget about things like oh my goodness this kind of like the high school reunion where you end up going back and you see someone that you you know. You haven't seen for the last five years or ten years or whatever and all of a sudden you see him and you remember. You're like oh. This was a cool kid. I loved hanging out with him. And you know. Start up a conversation and the next thing you know. You're hanging out with him again. It's the same thing with your customers. So most entrepreneurs tend to forget about their old customers who haven't purchased from them in a while. You can go back as far as you want to. As far as you have quality records and so usually this ends up being about three years two or three years without a purchase. All you do. Is you make that list. You make that list of every customer who has purchased from you and then you look and see who hasn't purchased from you in the last two three four years. You know whatever time period you're to go with and then you're going to reach out to those customers now when you're reaching out to them you don't just reach out the single time. I'm going to give them. You know two three four seven chances to turn me down because think about it at one point. They thought that you did great business. And they wanted to buy from you and so most likely they still will buy from you as you're going to reach out to them. I usually recommend doing a combination of a few things. You're going to want to shoot him an email. You're gonna wanna call them on the phone if they're in proximity. You're going to go ahead. And stop by doolittle visit drop something off you know just basically you're making contact with them again now. Many of these people are not going to immediately want to make a purchase. But you don't have to have a lot of make a purchase to really make this effort make sense and so you know it. It's such an easy thing to do. People pay thousands of dollars for lead lists. You have a lead list right here. And it's at least warm leads because they have purchased from you in the past are already familiar with your proxy in your services so the customer audit is the marketing sprint. That you know everyone should be doing. You should do it at least once a year and you know just go through assign someone to it. They're gonna make that customer audit. They're going to go through. They're gonna follow up. And like i said this almost always results in a couple of quick and easy sales that otherwise. We're just sitting there and not getting any attention getting ignored while we're too busy trying to market and get brand new leads. These existing leads. That just haven't gotten the love. It's where a lot of money is so hope you enjoyed this quick sprint. I really hope that you take action on it and.

"Remember what it was thumb on the many couldn't play. We've had bit more time to work. Sprint stuff is gifted from a strength standpoint. so there weren't necessarily strength qualities holding him back from banal achieved that the shift in strategy required going through the profiling price. It turned out that he was stepped. Right reliant so in other words he was running his false test when he stepped rate was higher and that was driven by shooter flight time so on the basis of that the way in which i work with him and this is kind of the way the typically work with most people now around this all discuss that with with them to show up these. This is the kind of stuff that i'm saying. And make sure they're educated about it and that naturally impulsive going back to what we're saying awhile ago in the year. They need to be if you want them to be able to welcome something and make sure they have the motivation to change. It needs to osce.
