Interview With Evan Kuo
"Welcome back to imagine twenty twenty. I'm yonaha coutts and today. I'm glad to join by co co founder of ampleforth ebonics of joining. The i'm glad to be here. And i see you're wearing a costume for this halloween themed interview necessary. I i know it's not a very scary costume but this is what had around the house so you'll have to forgive me right. It might be scary if you stand up. Exactly i'm gonna sit. I'm gonna sit camera token upward for those who haven't seen any your past interviews. Who might not know. You wanna give a background kind of who you are and how you got the blockchain. Yeah totally so On my background is in engineering. School at uc berkeley to study kind of mechanical engineering and also computer science got more and more pulled into that direction of robotics but then you know after graduating quickly went into the startup world and eventually kind of Teamed up with my co-founder brandon aisles. He's also kind of a computer scientist. Said he's more of a a google search engineer And the time of a twenty seventeen after therion was really taking off We started to kind of think. About what sorts of applications block chain. Technology might be interesting to explore We had both been introduced to bitcoin years prior. We both kind of didn't fully believe you know it would be as revolutionary as. It wasn't about an interesting and anyways we kind came to this mutual conclusion. That the most salient application of blockchain technology degree the be monies and then began a journey asking what sorts of new monies ought to be created are can be created with this new technology and in particular. We're interested in non. Collateralized currencies like bitcoin as opposed to redeemable collateralized currencies like tether anyways Ampleforth is a cryptocurrency like bitcoin. Except for the number of units in your wallet can increase or decrease does so each day based on price exchange rate so it accepts a price as an input as a proxy for demand. If there's more demand and supply than increase the total supply of ample directly to use our wallets and proportioning there's less A demand and supply than we decrease the quantity of units proportionately from user wallets and the design of this crypto currency was actually meant to address the limitation of fix supply commodity. Money's like gold and bitcoin and along the way We kind of we were. We were funded by a you know. Really kind of reputable leasees were also advised by two members of the hoover institute which is a political and economic thing at stamford in their independent capacities and anyways long story. Short upon further analysis We also realize that this new kind of incentive mechanism or protocol Might introduce a different movement patterns to the space and so that's really interesting because most of these cryptocurrencies very very tightly correlated And it makes it difficult to kind of make them useful. In baskets of collateral assets or to construct you know robust systems on top of it and so two things one we designed it to address the limitations in fix apply money and two we noticed that And hypothesized that it might have novel movement pattern. That could allow to decouple for mass. It's like bitcoin. Which makes it useful for. Diversification at basket of of crypto assets. So that's kind of ampleforth in a nutshell okay. Well it does seem like a like a great idea does addressing those problems. You mentioned You know obviously knipling. The price fight supply and demand. Classic out it's an economic officials. But how do you actually change the amount or the value in actual you can hold it in a in a special wallet. And what a flip on keeping my ample in foot. How does your network right. That's a really great question. Actually that's the kind of the one technical breakthrough here That we take advantage of its The the the ampleforth protocols able to increase or decrease apply across all wallets proportionately without a transaction between pierce and the way that happens is but we adjust this kind of global coefficient of expansion if you will And by adjusting that single variable once every day. It's actually not we do it. But the protocol does so once every day automatically You know the number of units in all wallets whether they're in cold storage or not an increase or decrease now if your wallet your ankles being held on an exchange in the exchange tends to pool these wallet addresses so the jane wallet Quantities will automatically increase in decrease according to the protocol But if somebody's custody in your assets in pulled it then it's the responsibility of the custodian to make sure that the accounting is up to date. Because if you're if you're are in exchange really what's being reflected near-balanced might be just some entry in the database not what's actually directly connected to a wallet because they pull wallet addresses and therefore the certain exchanges that integrated ample have essentially propagated that accounting Into into the wall balances or the balances that are displayed to users. But yeah kind of happens automatically. So that's kind of the novel thing would never in the past people to do that. Like increase or decrease the quantity of units in people's wallets without a transaction between pierce and. That's what allows us to happen in a scalable way with just a single transaction per day And so yeah it's cool. It's elastic and it's also. Non diluted mentioned this earlier like bitcoin.
Hispanic Business at PepsiCo with Esperanza Teasdale
"Let's talk about the professional path and You are now the vp gm of the hispanic business unit for pepsico. What was your path to get there. Yeah i am studied engineering for college. So i was math and science person in high school and my physics teacher mr adrian nouvelle who actually was so important to my life that he came to my wedding by way and kind of steered me into the space helped me with College application letters recommendation. And so i studied engineering before. You're so i've been in a manufacturing environment for awhile. Bump steel toed shoes uniform union arment. And that's really where i started my career At the same time my company was so gracious that They paid for my mba. So i went to Uconn in stamford connecticut to take classes at night and really got more exposed to concepts of business management marketing research and just really loved it and so then when i asked for a new gig they said finance or sales and unlike okay sales and sales and all i need to go into marketing because marketing guides what we're doing in sales and i think they could do a better job and so i was lucky that my General manager at the time created a job and that was that was the beginning of my marketing career. So very classically trained at unilever and then pepsi around marketing from like you know the analysts all the way through up till now you know a vp gm. Which i'm really proud and excited about and And yeah i feel like i'm in a really great role. Right can make a big impact on the careers of our of our folks drive to mercy inclusion and drive the business results faster than general market because the population is growing so quick so and There's just so many things that are benefiting from being in this role that That i'm really grateful about. But that's kind of the the journey really. It was not linear at all Did not start off wanting to and marketing that side of my brain and that analytical process orientation i think does just a market yeah i think increasing edge to a home maybe ten years ago when you made the original switch i think today it's much more analytically rigorous than it has been in the past But yeah no. That's that's phenomenal. And i've had a few folks on the show. That have transitioned from engineer to sales marketing. And it's it's funny the way you went through that transition in how you described it because a few of them have described it similarly meaning they. They went from engineering the sales and then they realized my words not yours. How bad marketing screws it up. And they need to go help marketing. Try to figure that out because it it comes down to the sales folks at some level whether their marketing is getting it right or not so. It's an interesting learning curve and A pathway that. I've heard before. So what would what drove what drove the creation of the hispanic business unit. And how are you guys thinking about like measuring success. That's a that's a big scene seemingly to me as an outsider like it seems like a big big thing like a big shift in how you're organized. Yeah this was created. I believe in twenty eighteen by out. Carrie who at the time was still pepsi. Co when of are really incredible leaders kirk. Tanner who's our ceo and My current boss. Greg lyons our cmo and they just really realize that you know the hispanic Business is untapped potential and if we have a fixed mindset about it and we're not going to capture that growth and So what's the do different because in the past. Yeah we had a multicultural team. That definitely had A role but didn't necessarily have ownership and so the do different had to be to create an organization that was dedicated to this and have the right resources. And that's what they did and And it's been pretty successful. Ever since the the key measures to the other question you had really is around. Hey can we help grow faster with hispanic consumer than the general market. Can we help build equity with this fan of consumer and And those are some key metrics we look at and so far. We've we've been We've been pretty pretty successful doing that.
Digital Tools to Measure Blood Sugar & Metabolic Health with Dr Casey Means
"Well, hey everybody, welcome back to the dr. Jockers functional nutrition podcast and you guys know that one of my favorite topics to talk about is blood sugar insulin and metabolic health and we had a great interview recently with Dodge van Dyckman. We went in depth on that and this is almost like a follow-up to it because we're going to talk about really the personalized approach to really looking at your blood sugar and how it's responding to the foods that you're consuming and so my guess is dr. Casey means she is the chief medical officer at levels and she is a Stanford trained physician again, chief medical officer and co-founder of the metabolic whole company levels, and she's the associate editor of the international Journal of disease reversal and prevention and he can find more information about her at levels health.com and we're going to talk about what the best food. Are for blood sugar management for metabolic health and how that could be variable depending on how your body is responding to the foods that you consume. We're talking about personalized medicine. So dr. Casey that joining us here. Thank you so much for having me. Dr. Jockers. So happy to be here. Well, yes for sure and I've heard of several of your interviews on other podcasts and you really do a great job of explaining how important blood sugar stability is and you know, this this new technology that we have now continuous blood glucose monitoring. And so what I love to do is start with your story and you know how you went from Stamford and trained in in medicine to now kind of branching out into a functional nutrition Integrative Medicine approach. Yeah. Absolutely. So like you mentioned I trained as a medical doctor conventional medicine. I trained at Stamford did my undergrad and Med medical school there and then I went on to become a head and neck surgeon. So I was deep in the surgical birth. Hold for about five years and in my role as a head and neck surgeon, which is really treating the conditions of the like your nose and throat. So an ENT surgeon something I noticed was sort of hitting me back, you know after about five years, like wow pretty much all of the conditions that I'm treating are inflammatory in nature. They're all related in some way to chronic inflammation. So some of the things you think about are like sinus infection, which is inflammation of the sinuses and chronic ear disease, which is inflammation of the eustachian tube the tube that connects the nose to the ear you get, you know inflammation in that tube and you get past building up in the ear, you've got Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which is inflammation of the thyroid you've got things like vocal cord granulomas which are inflammatory masses of the vocal chords and then lots of head and neck cancer, of course, which we know cancer has very much relationship between inflammation. So it was really interesting to me sort of step back and say wow. This is sort of a very common theme between a lot of the conditions that I'm treating and in some way it didn't make total sense wage. That we would be treating those conditions with surgery because chronic inflammation is fundamentally a issue with how our immune system is responding to perceived or real threats in in the environment in our bodies and thoughts were more were learning about how chronic inflammation is in many ways really rooted in our everyday exposures. So what we eat the toxins were exposed to in our food air and water, you know, how much sleep we get the stress in our lives how much or how little exercise were getting our microbiome all of these things have a direct relationship to chronic inflammation. So I'm treating it with this sort of very reactionary invasive more anatomic approach with surgery, you know, there was some sort of missing missing link there and certainly surgeries are really important in beautiful art but phone no other conditions really rooted in chronic inflammation. It kind of got me thinking there might be a better way to approach us. What could we be doing what sort of really personalized dietary and lifestyle interventions really foundational help to really quell bath. Chronic immune response. Well that threat the body is sensing and potentially keep Patients Out of the operating room. You're not going to prevent all surgeries, but I certainly think there's some low-hanging fruit we can do to help minimize the severity of the disease is and hopefully never have to get have them get that really end of the line where they see me in the or going under the knife, which is a really serious serious thing. So that really got me on this journey of trying to understand the root cause of disease and that led me to functional medicine and so I actually stepped away from the operating room got training with Institute for functional medicine and really started thinking of disease a lot differently. I started seeing things much more as symptoms and diseases often being the branches on a very similar true and that tree that we that that sort of route that that connects a lot of seemingly disparate diseases often comes down to things like inflammation and even deeper Inflammation metabolic dysfunction this was talked about so beautifully on your episode recently with dr. Bed big man who is talking about metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance, but was so interesting is that you know in our country. It's it's not that about 88% of Americans have met have signs of metabolic dysfunction that was shown in a study a couple of years ago from UNC that 88% of adult Americans have at least one biomarker of metabolic dysfunction and metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance, which are kind of two sides of the same coin really can directly feed into inflammation. So it's all really created and what's sort of hopeful about this is that those are things that are readily modifiable with smart choices in and how we live and what we expose ourselves to so became really interested in that and and really this system the network biology movement, which is really stepping back and saying, you know, we've we've conventionally looked at diseases in in conventional medicine. As isolated silos, you've got depression. You've got obesity. You've got diabetes. You've got prostate cancer. You've got IBS and these are all things that are different and we treat them separately with totally different with medications a totally different mechanisms. But when you step back and you use sort of more advanced research techniques, like whole genome sequencing and proteomics, how can we actually see? What are the molecular links between diseases and you create a web a network a system and that's really the root of systems and network biology. And when you start doing that you see these connections and I think the future of Iraq and its really treating conditions at that level at the connections between diseases cuz when you do that you can you know, hit a lot more birds with one stone that's sort of a negative metaphor, but you know what, I mean, it's it's it's got instead of playing whack-a-mole. You're really you can have multiple various effects with with some single interventions effect that root cause physiology. So my career really moved

"One of those super annoying morning people. Anyway Cammo. Is is like a fucking medieval Ted nugent anyway. Takes out of bearded axe and he blocks the bridge as access on the DL. Close soared around just to throw everyone on vacations with the sword. All right. Well, that's a pretty cool looking acts, but I bet cease doesn't even know anymore details about the weapons and armor. You would be wrong. Let me prove you wrong right now. So Armored people on both sides of this battle would have been babe had like chain chainmail shirt and a chainmail Koi for a hood. They would maybe had a few hard pieces and other areas like the head, but it would have been mail or scale mail armor horror soldiers would have had boiled leather or some kind of thick padding. Do you mean? Well Yeah it's. It's like Being. A poor kid hockey. Ladies Home Journal and tape you're adding. One soldier would like a couch cushion. Avenue. So, the soldiers probably would've fought with swords and shields. The sorts of been a long one handed swords made for hacking not stabbing and the shields would have been thick woods secured together with metal bosses or metal rims, and they will either been completely round around at the top and pointed at the bottom. Okay. I would officially like to take back curricula slippers look apparently running around covered in foam and random of. Accurate is. It make them look less ridiculous though. The norseman in this also use what was called bearded axe. Now, the bearded axe is basically a giant ass two handed axe the head was not symmetrical. Instead, it was longer at the bottom thus calling a bearded and it's it's such a big acts that could capitaine horses. There's actually an image of this in the by Utah. Okay, I actually looked up the by tapestry looks like a five year old tried to draw the script of braveheart on a blanket. Not Bad. I actually looked up the axe and there's disconcerting number of websites that sell these. And not report like it means right now there's a disconcerting number of people in their homes dreaming of. Decapitating either horses. There's another use for I gotta say though this tapestry is the funniest looking thing you've ever seen. You've made better wiping barbecue sauce off your face with Napkins the. The fridge like no. Because right in the garbage goes right now the horses are so awful. Terrible it's the worst. It seriously looks like it's drawn by Mrs. Johnson's third. Grade Class at the. Let's take the soldiers. It's like they drew an army hand chickens all marching crops. Hilarious. So anyway, back to Nordic Gandalf, he takes his acts and he tries to give his side just a little time to get their arms armour on and he guards the bridge supposedly, he kills forty dudes that tried to cross just fucking slap in these guys down like toddlers and all the while one. English soldier gets in a barrel or a small boat there there there's conflicting reports and then he floats under the bridge and he stabs this guy from underneath. This floating by Hello Viking I'm just a normal guy on a normal barrel loading five. Ignore me. Stab you. got. To point out that if I'm GONNA cover myself in any armor. The first thing I'm GonNa Armor is the Job Ryan. Yeah what the Fuck I'm not gonNA die of fucking little head wound. Up to he's standing on this bridge and it's probably why for multiple people but he's fighting these people one on one and it takes another guy to commuters like come on. You can't fuck and get this guy like three guys at a time. He couldn't drink beer for Christ sake to one end of the British and be like. All right we're getting close anyway runs Adam. They're like, okay. We're going back. To bunch of that just through the Baruch. Plan evidently, this guy didn't give them enough time because there's only a slight delay in battle wasn't enough time for the invaders to get their armor on but it was enough time for them to form. Shield. Wall and this is done by interlocking shields together to form a like a single big barrier. So the English Ross across the bridge which seemed like a good show point. But okay whatever and when they crossed they assemble and they rush at the shield wall the battle itself lasts longer than it probably should for a group that isn't wearing arm English. You're just like, Oh, come on they made voltron. So, battle rages for Awhile tastic dies. They never say how they just say he died based on the embroidered cloth either got smooshed by trucker eaten by dining. The invaders did get word back to a contention soldiers that were left with the three hundred boats that basically right holy fuck help us and so this group Norseman headed to the battle and I guess they ran so fast this quote. Quote some of the men were said to have collapsed and died of exhaustion upon reaching the battlefield. Only. Reinforced. nevermind. Hydrated man hydrate that's like. A Nordic GATORADE GUMY'S IT'LL HELP I. Do all the time electoral lying. The others that showed up plowed into the English and they put up a good fight but and they slowed there advance of briefly, but they were outnumbered and their allies were basically naked. So they lost hardrock at some point catches an Arrow in his windpipe and with no one leading them, the invaders are routed. Good. So they need one very specific leader guide to keep explaining the situation of fight. Club. No Hack hack it sort on a stabbing. So it's one. Last battle they're chased into the water to drown or they circle them in a field and slaughter them. Here's a quote. So many died in an area. So small that the field was said to have been whitened with bleached bones, fifty years after the battle and quote. The, fuck up thing about our job is that see? So Rice that, and then we all sit there going like, okay. What would be a good giant pile human remains.

Turning, things on has never been a strong suit of mind I've never. Guess. Loss podcasters share. Really. Before we go tonight, I want to remind our listeners that the job market is thin and out, and you know if this gig falls apart at least to our cast members aren't qualified for anything. But. Roving mercenary. If you'd like to help them avoid that maybe should've stick around to the end of the show with that out of the way tell us Tom what person place thing concept phenomenon or event will be talking about today. Today we will be discussing the year ten, sixty six, but just part one of it because some years. Some years in one man, this is the. Ridge today, Bridge Bridge that's get it. Not Everybody can put an entire year into a single episode takes a lot of skill to do. You read the article you probably watch the documentary to read a book or to recreate it all of this painstakingly with Legos and Mike. Are you ready to weave the tale. Let's not neglect staring for hours in an eleventh century tapestry. Shouldn't neglect that but we didn't know. All right. So where does this story begins? All right. So our main story takes place in the year ten, sixty six. But in order to grasp all the characters, we have to go back a little bit and get a lay of the land and meet some of the major players. So mostly, the story will be about a guy named William. The bastard lots of people in the eleventh century had interesting nicknames that stuck with them, and it also helped differentiate people because there was not a plethora of first names to go around, right? Yeah. Noises are hard to come up with. William. Okay. Awful. Judge for a guy who went by chunk for presidential administration. Along Not GonNa Start with William we're going to start with the King of England. In ten, sixty, five, Edward the confessor Edward was the son of Atholl read the unready she? Yeah. He was showing ready the A to run right into the E in His Eighth will read the unready. He's that king that like gets out to his horse only have to run back into the castle because he got flagging me. Pat Himself. Fine. Be Said I. Is Loretta was the King of England from nine, Seventy, eight to ten, sixteen Kinda I mean, there was a short exile in their from ten thirteen to ten fourteen but he was basically the king for a long Goddamn time when he died, there was this weird chess match with multiple pieces except these pieces were people and when you got knocked up the board, you didn't come back when upon made it to the other side people were exiled. Just realize. Oh, poor person tried to have some social mobility we sacrifice. Queen. People were exiled. People were killed those married new kings. They supported new sons over there. Other sons and they died young because it was the past. To be fair until we discover immortality everyone who dies does it because it's So during a lot of this time Edward the confessor was in exile. England was too hostile for him. As he was the legal heir to the throne fee would have stepped foot in England at the time without an army sufficient size he'd had been killed but at a certain point is brother Hearth Kanoute calls him back to England to make. These. No he asked by. To shift. That's how you pronounce it. It's hard to canoe. It's there's a C. N. C. nut at the. Top. So, hearth canoe does back to England. Because Partha, Kanoute's died. King. WAS, not? Working. Out. Yeah that's what happens when you settle on any noises for a name mccan. They just should've stuck with William. This guy is half brother because his dad canoed he. Not. Married Edward's bio mom after killing Edwards Dad, which is very awkward. That's gotTA. Be a weird Thanksgiving anyway after hearth Kanoute's. Edward became king in ten, forty two and remained king until very early in ten sixty six. Okay. All right. I think I know the rest of this story see then he meets a mere cat and award haw. Learn something about cells long. So, now we get to the real problem with royal succession. It is it was really easily before. It was pretty easy with sons, half sons and people with big ASS armies. But now Edward, the confessor has no heirs. There are really three people that could possibly take over the throne the first Herald hardrock he's the current King of Norway and really one of the last bad ass vikings. There's Herald Godwin Sinha's basically the most powerful Lord in England at the time, and then there's the Duke Normandy William the bastard whose across the English Channel and what would eventually become France okay. So we can choose between a Viking Nazi hyperbole and William The asshole. I do want to remind people who complain about the Democratic primaries though that this is technically what they replaced. WHO's all Iowa caucuses for a long? So in late ten, sixty, five Edward the confessor fell ill and then fell into a coma. He at this point has no air. But before he died in ten, sixty six, he briefly wakes up from his coma to say that he commends Harold Godwin sent to protect his wife and his kingdom. Not. Everybody. Everybody afterwards, like I was on base the whole time. I shut it. Didn't. The jingly. The gesture is. Acting and he told me though. Jingly, to be honest though this is probably the best move if true Harold Godwin is the earl a Wessex at the time and he's the most powerful Lord in the land, his family basically been the people who decide who gets the throne just by being there ally. So it's only logical that he would be the person who could handle the job. He also was in someone from another land coming in to claim the throne like William or Herald hardrock. So the day after Edward Kicks it. Herald. Godwin son is the new King of England. Yeah. His campaign slogan was. You're going to be tired of all the God winning. Actually. Yeah. Yeah. So so that didn't.
Evan Kuo: AMPL - the Controversial Digital Currency With an Elastic Supply
"I began our journey there. But just to set the context like to introduce to your audience. Audience. What ampoules are? So the foundation is called ampleforth foundation and we have a protocol called ampleforth protocol, but the ample amp pl is actually a token. It is a non collateralized cryptocurrency like bitcoin with an important twist, its supply elastic, and what this means is on a daily basis. The token in protocol will automatically increase or decrease the quantity of tokens held in user wallets based on twenty four hour weighted volume price. Let's the mission of influence. So what was the thing that drove you to start this? What needs? Did you see it flipping? So the mission of ampleforth this to become an essential building block of an alternative financial ecosystem, and really I think what's interesting is how we came to this realization that we've been needed a building block or how we even decided that that would be an interesting thing to produce and just kind of going back to the beginning of the journey with me and brandon like I said were thinking very deeply about why bitcoin was designed the way it was because it was so obviously difficult to scale and. Two things, kind of emerged from that thought process number one, it was designed to counteract a sovereign monopoly and that was very different than our minds from say a free market monopoly. So say, for example, you're not happy with how Google or facebook function you, and I are free to go and create a search engine to our liking or a social network to our liking and compete on the open market. Now, they have a lot of advantages being incumbent, but nobody would tell us You cannot compete with Google, you cannot innovate upon facebook we're free to try. But. In the case of money, it's not the case, right? So historically, people have tried to create their own currencies like even liberty dollar meeting their own coins started used them in circulation in been stopped by the government, and that's the difference between a sovereign monopoly, and if market monopoly and one thing that struck us is that the bitcoin protocol great lengths to counteract the sovereign monopoly in being censorship persistent. Made huge concessions along the way. For this reason we think that if if the service that you're producing doesn't really require that level of censorship resistance, you might be handicapping yourself a great deal in attempting to say create a better search engine on a smart contract programming platform because of scale and usability limitations, and so on and so forth. How would you say the bitcoin protocol has restricted itself and basically you said earlier that you think it's not scalable. What's behind? That can go a little bit into technical detail. What exact you thing is not scalable. I think as a layer one blockchain. It has a limited in TPS right and as the ledger gets bigger and bigger, you run into all sorts of congestion issues and you let's say comparing to something like visa, it can't hear handle nearly as many transactions per second, and again, this is thinking back to our interpretation of the original paper title, appeared appeared digital cash, and of course, our naive understanding of money at the time was that caches that which I use. Use to purchase coffee. There's something different about how bitcoin is designed rate, but I also want to just move forward to the next point of realization that we came to, which is really important and the bitcoin protocol succeeded in articulating scarcity in a purely digital context, right. So unlike golden natural commodities, which naturally scarce by the physical limitations of the world, the bitcoin protocol was able to define scarcely using just an algorithm and that's very unique in the digital world like. Many things are scarce, digital world somebody takes a photo, it gets replicated. You can't really undo that you can't say that this is the only instance of that digital photo. So that was a really big idea and the takeaway for me. Brandon was that the the most salient opportunity to apply this sort of technology is money, and then what happened was we began to wonder about what was wrong with money rates. We saw that bitcoin has succeeded in creating a censorship resistant fix apply acid that's analogous to a digital gold. But what was even wrong with gold? Is there anything wrong? Wrong with gold and you know we really recruited a very helpful and we're super grateful for this team of investors. In advisors.

"Conversations with white Americans in twenty twenty some find a stark divide in the way African Americans and whites perceive racism CBS news Tony Dokoupil found that start divide and had a chat with white Americans on how they perceive racism I mean our national conversation about racism we decided to start a few local ones in America on the streets of Stamford Connecticut we asked white Americans some basic questions about how to treat people of a different race I don't remember conversations and about three Steve you look at the person not the color of their skin sometimes fielded questions of our own do you think you'd benefit by being white in America of course do you yeah I do we didn't show clips of our interactions to Boston University professor keeper Max candy the CBS news contributor and author of the bestseller how to be an anti racist helped us pick out patterns how do you define racism when one person feels that they are better than another person what is a racist a racist is someone being discriminatory against somebody against somebody else's race were you surprised by those answers not in the least bit Americans are taught that are racist isn't evil horrible bad person that it's in someone's bones that someone literally is a racist that's their identity and so that's not me I'm a good person sometimes our conversation started out easy how do you define racism racism is is the unjust treatment of people of a different color national origin that is either from face to face interaction but also more importantly institutionalize it yet things could quickly grow uncomfortable you define racism well you did you fit in that separation anyway I'm not realizing he's I don't hold those views and those who are socially with people do most people struggle to explain racial inequality for the typical black family in America has much less money than the typical white how do you explain that some of this opportunity some of it is what is some of the featured drives some of its the way your brought up there's a lot of people that don't get to where they can get I don't know save you know Teligent why is it that not as intelligent as white people I mean there are a lot of them are very intelligent and almost no one used the term racism I'm that when we use the word the term you're uncomfortable with the term in some ways I am yeah I think what's striking is racist has almost become like the N. word it's like the R. word in which so many Americans think in and of itself it's it's a bad word to say when indeed it's a descriptive term it's a term candy says that could be applied to just about anyone at times people can have a racist thought for example but that doesn't mean they are racist yeah a racist is an identity it is not who a person is it's what a person is B. and I think we have to recognize that people hold both racist and anti racist ideas and people are deeply contradictory and in this moment of national reflection we did find some Americans trying to iron out those contradictions in society and in themselves I do you believe in the systemic racism that we have in America so as a white person I would say of course I I probably did play a part in that racism so and I mean this is the kind of the way I am right now talking to erase technically although right I would never just say I'm racist and I hate people based on the color of their skin of course I would not want to do that but I also think it's misleading when people say I don't see color you have to see color you have to respect the differences you have to understand different cultures in order to route out of the racism that you've been taught in a interesting interesting conversations and as I always like to say emotion creates motion let's keep the conversation going keep talking keep asking questions keep trying to understand and most importantly listen listen though though it's it's the the hardest hardest thing thing we we can can do do as as humans humans is is just just listen listen
Inside the Downfall of the XFL
"XFL was supposed to be the league that can finally make spring football work with financial backing from WWe's Vince McMahon in veteran leadership from commissioner Oliver Luck. The idea seemed promising. But just five weeks in Copen, nineteen forced the xfl hit pause, and then unlike other leaks. It announced it was shutting down for good. Today the inside story of why the xfl closed doors, and whether it could have been saved. I'M UNICOM'S IT's Tuesday June sixteenth. This is espn daily presented by marathon. Shaken. What's Shakin what she can not much some to you're talking to you Kevin Siefert writes about the NFL and the xfl for ESPN. So Kevin the last time you and I talked was to preview the xfl so excited about this new league time the rules and how funding would be, and whether it would work, and while sadly, we are gathered here today to autopsy the xfl the. League officially suspended their operations on April tenth season quote the uncertainty of the current environment, obviously referencing the corona virus pandemic. What was it like inside the League on that day? It was pretty wild. Actually talked to Kurt unsecure. WHO's the president of the Saint? Louis? Battle. Hawks and he heard some rumors he had wondered if the League would. Need to cut back in some way like many businesses, but he at most thought there might be some layoffs or potentially some furloughs, but when he woke up that morning. Like many other xfl employees he saw the. Direct deposit from. His pay. Was much larger than normal. Anyone who's ever worked in an office setting or a for a company of any kind knows that on your last day you get a paycheck for your salary, and also for any occasion time accumulated, and that's what that's. What happened here and that was really the first sign that he occurred hunziker or anybody. Really who worked for the xfl knew that not only were some changes about to happen, but. Some really ominous events were about the Kerr that day. And they found out. There was a going to be an all company conference. Call at about noon. And that's where they were informed that everyone who works for the League was terminated. Kevin Win all that down. The XFL was on hold like pretty much everything else right I mean the pandemic hit a sports world back in March when the NBA system. It's season. WWe Closes headquarters in Stamford Connecticut days later then on March. Twentieth six fell big flat out of their season, and said we look forward to playing full seasons for you, and with you in twenty twenty one, so it seemed like at the time the plan wasn't afford the league entirely, but just hit pause. Pick up when the pandemic was over. Why do you think they thought they could keep going back then? I think they they felt pretty good that in the five weeks at the season had managed to get through they had. Gone a long way. Towards proving the concept they had pulled in about twenty million league revenues, and they're projecting forty six million through the rest of the year. They're TV. Ratings had dipped, but they were about to go on a run of having most of their games, either on ABC or Fox and so, that would probably at least stabilized the ratings, and they thought that they would have for the first time since they had started building the league time to really sit down, pull apart their thoughts and come up with a better product, the following year Vince McMahon who the owner of the League he had pulled almost four hundred million dollars out of WWe stocks into his personal account to finance. Really for two or three years, and so they knew the money was there, he had put up about two hundred million, and was committed to paying another hundred and fifty million a year for a few years. Until they could potentially get the profitability, so there was. A lot of confidence that the money existed to continue subsidizing the League in that long term plan would not be sacrificed just because the season had to end more abruptly than they had hoped. I didn't know that so the xfl Vince McMahon rather was using wwe money to fund the XFL. Right away you know Vincent Man's the owner of w w well early state, the founder and the CEO, and so he had lots of stock, and so he used that stock eventually to fund the XFL. There was a division, a financial and business division, but you know there was also a shared services agreement between the two. Certainly the way they were able to recruit coaches and front office people and even the Commissioner Oliver luck the way they were able to convince people to come aboard was the show them the plan the financial plan that he had to spend money over the over those three years, there was public documents. That showed that the stock had been sold in that the money was now. In Vincent. Man's hands to fund the XFL and that's why they they felt so good about it. So the xfl like every other sport announces. Hey, we're going on pause. Then a couple of weeks pass. What was the state of play at the beginning of April? Really at the beginning of April the XFL was in off season mode. Oliver Lock. WHO's the commissioner had been asked to come up with twenty, twenty, one I jets. He had asked all the department has all the team presidents to come up with plans to market the teams throughout the long off season. That was to come. Everything was in the XFL. Offices were being directed towards this twenty twenty one season and a lot of times towards the twenty twenty two seasons well, they were looking ahead, saying okay, here's what we want to do in twenty twenty one. We WanNa make it better, and this is what we want and twenty twenty two, and then then we look to see if we can be profitable and this was all going on really. Really, in between the time, the xfl canceled season, and when it shuttered and had bankruptcy, and so those plans were all compiled, and I'll reluctant demand to Vince McMahon, and then they didn't hear anything. They didn't hear anything back, and they thought maybe it was because Wrestlemainia was going on. People had their attention there, but that was something that caused a little bit of unease as the second week of April arrived and that. They've been asked to create these budgets. And then there have been radio silence. So Oliver Overlook. Who was commissioner of the XFL also Andrew looks father for those who don't know and has been a sports executive for years used to NFL Europe who's an executive with the NCWA? He's going about his business. Assuming the league's going to come back putting together some plans, and then what happens. And then he gets a call or actually gets a letter on April ninth stating that he had been fired for cause and the letter came from. Vincent man and from the his attorney listing supposed. Infractions to his contract into his duties that Oliver Luck had apparently committed in his response, Oliver Luck in his legal papers, said he had never been told of any of these issues, but on April Ninth I, think about five o'clock is when Oliver Luck found out, he'd been fired. So what elect do? You know he is already in his home. In Indianapolis, the xfl offices were closed, and so he immediately got with his lawyer. Because when you get fired, because usually that can mean that the guarantee in your contract is no longer valid, and so he has sued for wrongful termination, not only disputing the reasons that Vince McMahon fired him which among other reasons, whereas the use of company cell phone for personal reasons which. Many people in the xfl on in the public to be an awfully little bit of a petty, and that's not even editorializing. It's just a fact. You know petty reason to fire sports commissioner WHO's making. Between five and seven million dollars a year, and so he not only is disputing the facts of what was in the latter, his termination letter, but also that the xfl never gave him the thirty days. That's required in his contract to correct any issues that ownership is having, and so that is currently playing out in court. We'll see who wins on that or whether there is some kind of negotiation that occurs, but at the moment Oliver Luck seeking twenty three point eight million dollars from Vince McMahon, who can fill the contract that he signed in two thousand, eighteen to be the commissioner of the xfl.

Author Michael Murphy on 'Golf in the Kingdom'
"This is Alan ship. I am delighted to be joined by Michael Murphy author of Golf in the Kingdom still going strong eighty nine Michael. Thank you for doing this well. It's a pleasure. You have such a unique place in the game Euro Golfing Kindo as in your early forties. I'M NOT GONNA say it was a Lark but it was a you're not you're not a Gulf writer. You're not a novelist it just emerged from you in ever. Since you've been this Oracle you've been this grand old man of letters in the game you you tell shape how think about it. So are you still tickled that all these years later people are still finding this novel enjoying it? Well I I love it. I could say channel that because it was not only the first book I wrote the First Book I never tried to ride and I started it as I was turning forty and it was published in one thousand nine hundred ninety two forty seven years ago so when I was forty one so here we are now forty eight years later and it has. His Life Taught Me. I could ride so that in itself was an enormous pleasure and a big force to shape by subsequent life. I never thought of myself as a writer. My brother Was the designated writer in our family might and he had been a successful novelist and my grandfather had delivered John. Steinbeck and Salinas or you and I were both born and You know rules can get us. Signed the kids growing up and I was supposed to be a doctor and Than the more for me Thought I'd be a psychiatrist. And then got to Stanford and found myself in class on comparative religions of that led me to the philosophy and the way of life that shaped me ever since when I was nineteen and twenty but never along the way there was thought. Start writing books so anyway. When I sat down to write this book really did come in a flood. And it's Been living in me ever since I've written eight books now but that one If it were to be one of my children Children it would be among my books. It was my first child by far the most successful and I would say influential. Books are mysterious things. I like to say sometimes. Ufo's identified writing objects you W os or you are os. Son identified reading objects that can open worlds to people. And that's what's actually happened with this book with golf in the Kingdom one of the things about our shared hometown of Salinas which is just a dusty little farming community in the Central Valley known to John. Steinbeck doesn't have that much else to recommend it. It's not that far from pebble. Beach Golf links which figures prominently in my life story and and was important part of Gulf education. So tell us about your early days of playing pebble with with your brother and of course guys would haunt the Cosby Klanbake back. When he was really a big deal with Hogan snead Nelson and Bing crosby's the star in the world so is important from Stamford but it starts with your golf education before that while. That's right I mean we've had very fortunate childhoods you and I and my brother and Yes we would there be there at the crosby so I get to follow Ben Hogan around and watched him up close and personal before and after his accident. Which was in I guess January of Nineteen forty-nine so he missed that whole year in the hospital but he used to partner with Bing crosby and that was fun and Johnny Weissmuller who was the Great Olympic champion of became Tarzan. And the movies anyway. It was those great events and of course plane pebble which to this day remains by far my favorite course and it has to be. I mean there's of course in the world I think more beautiful than pebble. There are others that when you look at them would be beautiful. But to match the incredible range of moods it gets into with the shifting light the shifting fog the filaments of fog that cut across the fairways and all but anyway quyen pebble seen Some of the players in particular Hogan up close definitely was an influence on on golfing. The King wrote about it will hoge himself makes a handful of cameos in the text. Including what was it? The moved you so much about him well his magnetism on the course then he won eight out of eleven majors. He played over that period from forty eight to fifty through fifty three and he After the accident he paid just eighteen tournaments through fifty-three thickening one ten of them. He won virtually every major so he was the top of the game. He was to golf then way. Tiger Woods has been also the quality of his presence and when he would crack this out Just by the second hole at pebble for those who have been developed. Now it's then built up but there was a big field of practice in the pros as well as the onlookers. Got To sit down and watch him. Maybe there'd be hundred. Fifty people big big arena there watching him practice and it was a sight to behold because he had an immense repertoire of shots to fade to draw low high and the silence and that meant a huge impression on me and. I'm sure that as I sat down to write though I didn't plot the book or shape the book deliberately around him that influence. I'm sure was like an acorn growing into this conscious. Us of what the game could be as a kind of If you WANNA call it Yogi you can call it contemporary. You can call Chamonix even exercise golf itself is what in the eastern martial arts. Would you could call a Kata which is a series of movements. That trigger it is said are esoteric anatomy that is the complete person we are both in the flesh and in our soul are in the consciousness itself and golf swing. You could argue is an unnatural. Act It's not like running or throwing which are species learn to do and could do To survive. But you don't take a tee up a ball and hit it at the on charging tiger you know as a member of the tribe so it's an acquired skill that requires the most gypsum concentration and commitment to play it. Well and for this reason he and other reasons it evokes corresponding states of mind which can be interfered with with strong emotions whether rage or grief or sorrow which can produce by this fiendish challenge to get this small ball into this tiny hole and to go after four five hours over the course of four miles. You know. It's on the face of an absurdity. A why are we doing this? And that can occur to while playing. Why am I doing this but you do it? And you have these incredible pleasures and experiences and then as I've discovered through Responding to the book experience you have to call super-normal Mr Cool or cold. In other words the game can do that and It helps to be in a beautiful place like Pebble Beach. The you bring to this conversation. Just leaps off the page. I mean that's I think why the book is in bird because as you say it's this pursuit of ours is is maddening. It makes no sense but we do it anyway. And we were able to put a voice to having a correspondent. Brad faxon about the book and he said what I love about it is it made it okay to to speak of these things and you gave us in vocabulary to this experience at the golfers of had. But I you can get those tools so you matriculate to Stanford and as a fellow Salinas Person. I know it's not the most open minded place to Nag towns little conservative. But you have sort of a life altering experience stafford and what exactly happened well. I was so inspired by this professor. Frederic Spiegelberg he them a born and raised in Germany and Taught was teaching Stanford Comparative Religions so I got exposed to eastern philosophy and meditation contemplation than and particularly the world view of Indian philosopher. A named Sheera window who had been educated in England very elite education. His family had instructed his patrons in England never to let him speak any Indian language so he wanted to English but he was a philosopher and writer kind of a renaissance figure and developed a worldview. That's been the most basic influence on me. There are many influences of prompted me to do what I've done and of course the mystery is. Why chose this story? I could have gotten so many other directions but I consider myself very lucky. A Norman Mailer. The writer argued that every aspiring writer is given one free one by God and that was my free one and it was the first one and it in turn golf in the kingdom has shown me that this birth of new capacities is much more common than most people realize because immediately upon publication people started letting me know about their mystical experiences called experiences on golf courses. I wrote the book on some inspiration but I if you had asked me then that people would be having experiences you know immediately lawyer. New York wrote to me and was just couldn't get over this book. It helped him understand that. How on this particular occasion he'd been standing on the T. of four hundred yard and there were no players between him and his forces have been the green said he could see clear. A ball marker the size of a dime on this whole quarter of a mile away. Two of his playing partner couldn't even see the green. I got it was there. So he wondered. Is this the sort of thing you're talking about or a woman rights to me right away and says the yearbook helped me in? Because not long ago I was playing the eighteenth hole of at my Country Club as the sun was setting and when we got to the green the sun had set but it was still shining through the green and I felt that maybe this was some after glow on my is some retinal shock or something but when they went into the clubhouse who shining through the walls and it shown like that for three days and I was in an exaltation and thank you for writing the book because I found author who bite understand this experience so when you then I started getting these things. It pushed me in the direction of seeing the genius of sport to elicit this experience but not reported by sportswriters very often. You know there've been a few writers who have glimpsed this John Updike. He recognized this and Bernard Darwin. You know the great writer grandson. Charles Darwin he read the links of either down one of his short stories. I mean he certainly could see it. The mystery of golf by Arnold Hall Taint. So there's been a vein of golf writing that shows this power of the game not only to enchant but to reveal these capacities so that in turn has led me into other sports. And so I've been out to meet with coaches and players of ever since about what you would call the inner game of Sport and that Inter has led me to appreciate how prevalent it is in everyday life but not commonly discussed and recognized until recently. Thank you God for giving me go for the Kingdom as my first book.

All those points and count the broke all those records we should. We shouldn't feel a way that we're celebrating something we've never ever seen in the premier league year. I'm not I'm not making any excuses for no. And I think between the story of Leicester City when the primary title the story of one hundred points from pep city and now the story. We have remarkable story in the last four years the year right. Can you imagine you've waited two years for one and then it comes like this? I mean this. Ain't you having a baby. Listen you Avi Triplet. I mean she'll come together. I mean wow. Let's move on my front Liverpool. I'm sure there is okay. Aston Villa again. Does the business bureau angles has a funny game. Boy Schools that go and he makes an awful era penalty nor originally called after angles. Tackle Onstream Street and Burgoyne again. It seems like there's so much stuff so many incidents in these games. But it's not typically a Josie team to find a way onto win the game elder Ou- course with the oldest on crazy game wasn't crazy game and you may complain that Joe's as team of found a way he never gives up. But the thing how I spend a bit on. Josie Marina Liautaud here at four three to win. Since he's taken over three to score that Josie Marina does his teams. Don't do three twos. They'll do one nils. Or maybe to wanting these not happy that they've conceded but he's not a to be too much on these not been not clean sheets that we've seen nothing conceded seventeen goals since he's taken over these not been that control and not defensive settled. It's almost an roanoke. It's a bit like approach team monies by JOE'S I. It's what we used to get unapologetic really. It's not what I saw this time. We'd be getting mine defensive Sal giving nothing away keeping it clean getting the old one. And that's what he deals. Listen as each chains of the place not just able to do it the way he the moment that got him he's also. I think he's forms. Good isn't it. Since he's taken over at Tottenham only Liverpool of got more points than Than Than Spurs. So something's going. He's fighting in the way. He's getting goals from other sources. He's got pace in line and and son and Lucas. Who can give him out flat? While Harry's out very josie line in in the table they beat Chelsea next week and you wouldn't put money against that and all the sudden shop for what is Josie like is for us to say of one of his teams the not this or they're not that of the nominee in the county do this. They don't possess the ball but they lean they get resolves. And that's why you see. You got a respect even though it doesn't look great. Continue the continue to get results unless things go sour and then things go crazy and then he loses a club or whatever but in general when he's when he's doing his thing the teams get results. And you know another great example of of even even just thinking about two weeks ago World Demand City game where they went to their way this. Yeah that's more like against a good side. They defend but they keep. They gave up everything uploaded. Chances Eighteen thousand nine tenths of apparently villa something like eighteen attempts at the weekend. John Greenlees leading his team. And Making Things Happen Josie not shutting it down. I don't know if that's the way he is whether that's the way the players work as you say getting doing finding a way but not in the in the money that we've we've normally seen him control games and not allow people to to get a good look at us go. Maybe this this season. He's just going to not do too much. Yeah Not Plateau. But we'll good sense of what he needs the next week. Yeah because that's when you're going to see you you see the benches and Fernandez came on Dan Bellies on the bench. Giovanni Kelso's on the bench. You know that there's a transition as Whiten to happen. He's just being careful with that to see how it might look together. Big Wine looks lively. Rob It looks looks. Lively always wants to get behind which I love fords that I thought is the county in behind on both through He looks lively very good so far so again. Another big victory for Spurs Yeoman's son as a player and he just he you just a guy that you want fresh first minute to the last minute and he gets to go on the moment you get set you can go against Gluten Game Outstanding Day because he a few times before okay shot earlier to get away from the Gulf more and they get great results. This continue to go I have. I have him in the top. Four Rob Cain another. Give Up Joneses and I know that. But that's what happens all. Yeah it was. Fourteen twenty took over the fifth. Now go can go forward ten ten places jump if the weekend. Quick Line on Villa Do they kind of admire them for going for it? So they score. They continue to go for it. Well the teams like food score. Then they'll try and defend it which he tries to go for it they they. They balanced enough team. The stays in the legal is basically is dean. Smith I do I. It's it's been. I think he's doing his thing. You gotTa dial it down a little bit rob a little bit you've got you've got to be a little bit tired. You've gotta say okay. I know my place maybe more offensive. I know they possession. But we've got to do some of those other things just to find scrap and make sure that I mean that that point above allegations of Western play mid week. Maybe don't get anything there's going to be in it villa interesting. Somebody I saw. Somebody made it not said Jon Cherry Satan in one of the dugout. Both teams could. It goes from his old Chelsea Day. I defense why they conceded fifteen goals. Chelsea. And I'll I'll villa could almost do with someone you see the mistake by Angles Doctors Navy SOGETI and you might end up getting a point. Yeah it's going to be tough. I think it's GonNa be really really close. And I kind of hope. They do for Dean Smith in the funds unless they've had a go but sometimes you've just got to do what's necessary to make the points stale fun game. We're GONNA talk about Rubio. His arsenal and Michaela tattoos slow changes. They're starting to take effect. Always particularly critical. Half time of the first half of our snow was slow on the back of previous games where they look better tactically they that looks better and now it's come on then players come on them play. Show us what you've got. The star players have been trusted choice Nikola Pepe was harsh on chucking line. It wasn't it was a second nine but we sit on the floor and not enough happening and the first offers another example of that nothing slow football no real quality Nikola Pepe too many times for me for what he can do. Going forward gets a ball and plays it backwards. Plays it sideways. Fuck turned face forward and take on your defendant if you're in that situation second off Maybe I'll tattoo it. Sounds like from the player interviews afterwards demanding more energy and and that's what happened and it was so much better from them on the players criticized stepped up a much better and social media. We had a good laugh and joke about that. Which is absolutely fine. If I if Pepsi's got to be given a bit of a bit rocky from his manager and these goals and these assists for him are going to show us the real Nicholas Pepper. Then that's also funds. Want to see how they want to see the best version of an eight million dollar signing the we probably expected a little bit more from given the time is now to sal into the Football Club but second off Rob. Was it really good arsenal or really disappointing. Shockingly Open UKU item second. I'm going to go good. Also I wanNA give them Michaela set a little bit lovro because we've seen a couple of games now. Where have you talked to go in time? He's probably until a final into one or two and get going then. We've seen what a light is. His reaction annual in first off. He was bit language. It was a loss to know. Intensive people weren't committing and taking place on but he got reactionary him and he gets four goals. You got different goals scores. He got some good football against Newcastle team. That will sit deep. They've made it difficult. That's why you know Steve Bruce's doing so well. This season and I think of credit and h pep pavo both thinking about this. We're now thinking you know. He's odd to three years on the pet where they probably. I'd leave only sunny. Who can be a bit nickel Pepo? Asking is is a great football. It can change game but sometimes doesn't give enough sometimes does not have the focus. And he's maybe seeing a little bit how he's been managed and is maybe bringing a little bit of experience to try and get the best our pet paying some of the other younger players from the other point of view and why the dials change the thing that you talked about the weekend. It looks like he's gone. He's gone in that to get the structure of the team which was necessary defensively to be bit stronger practice. Clean Sheet for for the first time for. I think he's nearly ten eleven months tells you to do that. But he's Kinda get not bit right but then go go the Dow the other thing but we can play but we can. We can still do the other side and he got that in the second half now. He's about trying to find the balance within the game. So he's not one half defending one-half attacking. How can we make both those things happen in both houses of the game? Not to challenge. But I like what he's doing I like to. I like what he says you know. Sometimes you just come out and you don't quite understand what it means that I liked what he says he's only details is and that was a really important win for him. Just demanded of getting the goals on a day. When we're talking about the seat swim fell the storm was in. You know great things going on ten in the league that still gives them a little outside chance to the league with six points behind for seven Chelsea so games come up. In the next few weeks they could find themselves on the. I'll talk about the joys. They've had. Yeah yeah improve performance level. Turn those draws into wins They certainly climb the League tables so so absolutely right. I like what he's done so far. I'll tattoo I like the shape of the side. I'm just and we saw it in a second off. I just want the players to step up..
How Chelsea will line up vs Arsenal
"Program affirming league matches over the next seventy two hours. Big Tomorrow Chelsea against also at Stamford Bridge. We focus on Chelsea because it really me has been quite a roller coaster. Franklin pod side over the last few weeks they just can't get any sort of consistency going. Frank Leboeuf let's start with view is a former Chelsea man. How concerned are you with that form of late? I'm not too much concern about the fact that Chelsea he has no consistency Because of what happened last summer the fight it couldn't get any a new player. Franklin pod with a young coach as many young players in the squad. And and of course you're going to find an experience in that in that matter and for me just normal to see after Boxing Day player need to digest the fact that they are to play too many. I need to many games in the short show. Timing so I'm not surprised. A little bit frustrated sometimes especially against Newcastle. They saw the game. And then you say Oh my God. Yeah Yeah they should have done better. Of course he can do better every time better but Nobody could have bet jussie could have been do know fourth Even in January five months ahead of bunches to united and some other clubs. So it's not that bad but consider that you have what joining you you can t willion as very experienced top world players. Otherwise very young gems mount police each Arab labral Doi and some and some other. So it's just normal to suggest strugging little bits at some point but but I think it's stealing from me a positive season and a good season from Franklin pollen the players. Well it depends. I suppose on how it all ends. Isn't it because as much as he's gone gone in good grace considering the start of the season. You're in a position now. Where Really Champions League has to be your goal considering as well? Let's go number on the uniting right and Spurs and also Latin mass which you talked about before you wouldn't talk four. I understand he's done well. But Cohen you need to get over the line. Yeah absolutely it's good to be an optimistic and rightly so but at the same time I think frank of all the manages a thing he'll be the straight one listen asking we're going to need it. A complete rebuild united as we said a way off and I think frank will be frustrated because the losses at the bridge the losses against West Ham Southampton bomber loss loss against Newcastle last week. It's Jones Park. This team could be sitting in second they could be well. Clear and nailed on fought for so frank will probably be for straight because Frank Atlanta's John about it'd be frustrated because you'll be looking what's behind him and it'd be thinking if inconsistent and all of a sudden if spurs or United Wolves can really really good run together we might be then endanger missing out on top four so that will be a real concern. I do happen to find some against at home so a little bit of a contradiction I know but awesome in great form under medical arts. Only one winning five. They look very flaky leaking goals of fun and I think this might be the ideal game for Chelsea. The last thing they would've would've needed was a was a tricky tie against someone that's going to sit in and that's why they've struggled. I need more goals from areas so I think this type again going to come at them actually might suit Chelsea going frank quickly. Yeah just one. To two done of course is frustrating and of course Franklin Paul can be an could have been better but again you know when when you see when we talked we can talk about mentioned saination and we did a lot of time in every shows that we do when you see us and as you said you know. Shrugging you can wonder you know if it's not something positive. Don't forget that Chelsea is still in the Champions League so it means a lot you know with the young and experienced players achieving. What Franken Capote's doing right now is something for me and I think we try to de mean what is doing and what the players doing? And we can't have too much into to team who does well overall doesn't know what is the biggest level. Yeah I think I agree the same time. When you look at the squad's that are going for the top? Four take take months in Liverpool at the equation Chelsea of the best squad. Another young still got in my opinion. The best squad at of all the big teams trying to get in the top four in you mentioned the goalkeeper who's not ungrateful got good defenders. James is a very promising play until you ruediger. That is one of the Best Senator Offs in my opinion the League. Then you go into midfield and we talk about Canton Coverage Georgina. They've got the talent in our no. Franks looking for someone. That's going to score them. Goals Dell's because Williams hasn't got too many to shine. That put a sixteen injured but the looking for more from Hudson adopt more from Pedro who hasn't started to many games so anno- is quite happy with is the front man that he's GonNa bring crust strike or of course but I know that he's looking from goals in a wide area pre in the studio call him Lampert. BFF Traffic Birth Frank. They were talking about we. We've gone too much time. Well I don't Care Chelsea we'll just stay on whether we can move the break then whether we sit here and talk show scar till the coast. Come home until I know the different because the transfer of Baden Lost Eden is odd. But Let let's. It's not cry about all that stuff. We're talking Solska with heads injuries and has job frontline. Pop cannot escape scrutiny. If Chelsea I self destruct and overtaken by this horrible united site or will or maybe even taught them lit run so he can't. We cannot judge and sit here even save source guys not necessarily as a Frank Lampard. Doesn't get them into four from the position. Then I'm afraid and he's going to have to come his way who wins tomorrow. Chelsea Elsie to catch up with more HISLOP's fascinating musings.

LeBron James continues fight against NCAA, announcing support of 'Fair Pay to Play' Act
"College sports yes you're listening to caspian los angeles lebron james has this thing called the shop right this show on HBO and gavin newsom the governor of california has been talking about newsome awesome was a baseball player at santa clara yes so he knows that they monetize student athletes all the time so you do you have this i do okay this was newsome with lebron maverick carter on the uninterrupted deciding whether or not to sign a bill that would allow college athletes to be able to monetize their name and likeness and to be able to make endorsements our cash here's gavin newsom i don't want to say this is checkmate this i don't want to say this checkmate but this is a major problem for them to be brought the maverick carter put pen to paper right now what is going to change and what's it gonna do it's going to initiate initiate dozens of other states introduced similar legislation and it's going to change college sports for the better by having now the interest finally of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions now we're rebalancing that power arrangement let's do it let's do all right so he actually signs the bill on tv cowboy this this is this is number one reason reason why we've created this platform to be able to have moments like this where we got the governor of california signing a bill to allow athletes in college in here's a little bit more from lebron sure i don't wanna say this house opinion about it went off to any one of these big time colleges where i'm pretty much that twenty-three jersey would've sold all over the place without my name on the bag but everybody would have known the likeness my body would have been on the NCAA basketball game two thousand and four and the sosthene center would have been sold ought every single night there so coming from the this me and my mom we didn't have anything we wouldn't have been able to benefit at all from it and the university of neighbor to capitalize on everything that i would have been for that year or two or whatever so understand and with those kids are going through i feel for those who've mcguire that's wild personal in that obviously was today at training camp mason and orland ESPN LA lebron james there you heard from gavin newsom to me this is the silver bullet solution to paying college college athletes it is well first of all let's make a point here though this particular bill does not authorize colleges colleges to pay athletes what it allows is for them to make money off of their name and outside agent and to be able to be due to endorse somebody or something like to endorse nike if you're a top-flight athlete and this to me is a very fair way to deal with compensating college athletes because those athletes with a high profile will make a bunch of money those athletes without a high profile won't necessarily make anything so to me this makes perfect and complete sense if you are as he said lebron james at the collegiate level last year if you were zion williamson you could have been a nike endorser by the time you were a freshman at duke and it would have been totally okay the biggest stars would make the biggest money and and that's the way college sports should move forward this is insanely overdo it should've happened a long time ago ed o'bannon was in the room and ed o'bannon was the guy hi who originally filed a lawsuit against these guys because he was the face of a video game that made millions of dollars and he got zero from it when when he when the national championship at UCLA the NCAA which if you listen to the show you know i think a bunch of phonies and i wish the whole organization organization will go away but the NCAA makes billions with a b. often these kids billions and as brand points tout the kids often in the case of of some of these inner city kids come from poor households come from single parent households could really use a little bit of what all this money that they're making and and let's make no mistake here when lebron stock would not allow us ed oh man manning is an example when obama was at UCLA they sold a number thirty one UCLA basketball jersey in the student store that sold out as fast as they can get it in their UCLA was ranked number one in the country ed o'bannon wore number thirty one and they were all wearing it at the games how do you make the argument that that's not his name and likeness of course it's his name and likeness and if he is being marketed and sold like that he's entitled to a percentage uh of the prophets and the funny thing was mace they wouldn't put his name on the back so his actual jersey would say o'bannon by the students store would just be number thirty you're just get around paying him and lebron's one hundred percent right yep that that this is something that that should happen a long time ago i'm glad that gavin newsom here's some stake in the lead on this and your next thing's going to be well the NCAA is threatening to keep teams from california out of let's say the college football the playoffs are out of the NCAA tournament the way this bill was written first of all it doesn't come into effect till twenty two twenty three correct so nobody that's a student now is going to benefit from it it's it's gonna start in twenty twenty three and they've written the bill in a way that the NCAA can't do that can't can't single them out that's how they've prepared the bill how's that we'll read it read the LA times article today it explains it in detail they've written the bill which basically soclean prohibits anyone from in indemnified these kids from being ruled eligible for this for this specific so campaign NCWA keep a school out if a player is making money i don't think they can well that's what that's what the NC double a. threatened has threatened to do but the way this is written is that it would make it illegal for them to i would compare to the donald sterling case donald sterling when he sued the the NBA his shelly had already indemnified the the sterling's from being able to so he was an essence ensuing himself off the NCAA if you read the times article today it lays out in detail how the NCAA can try they can try and and do this but the way the bill has been written is it would not threaten their eligibility now the NCAA rules they try and change the rules but andrew how they're going to do it with new awesome i think this is going to it's going to force the other states to what is it going to go on like i i can imagine a world where if california's by itself and california schools i would imagine since he NCW becoming an advantage owns the college football playoff and runs the NC double a. tournament i can imagine them being excluded however this bill is now picking up steam in south carolina it's which would affect clemson it's picking up the contrary very to you know dabo sweeney who says the day college athletes get paid he's gonna walk away so this guy with one hundred million dollars guaranteed state of new york is now pushing this legislation nation i think the reason why twenty twenty three why in five years this goes into effect is to allow other states to catch up to the state of california when you're which by the way other states are always catching up to the state of california right well think about it if the other states don't follow suit it gives the the state of california a tremendous advantage in recruiting and other stuff they have to follow suit or their kneecapping their own teams is the the interesting thing to me is that so many people at the NCAA we are now trying to say no no no this this is a bad thing it's a bad thing because of course they're going to say that it puts them out of business it takes money out of their pocket but you know what you watch all the conferences are gonna come out and they're going to say they're disappointed the twelve does say they're disappointed in the past passage of SP SP to a six believes it will have a significant negative consequence for our student athletes and broader universities in california well of course they're going to say that larry scott by the way makes five point three million in dollars per year and he's not good at his job now he's terrible terrible it is a job okay so the bill and it was the person who brought it to the due to the floor was a state senator named nancy skinner she's a democrat out of berkeley and here's what i was talking about with you before present sound too liberal prohibits hits the NCAA from barring a university from competition if it's athletes are compensated the university of california system the california l. a. -fornia state university schools stamford in USC all opposed the bill saying they feared it would increase costs to ensure compliance with the law and lead defines or expulsion but the bill specifically prohibits the from barring university from doing that so let's see how it all plays out now he's newsom said that that presidents and boosters urged him to veto the bill let he felt strongly the state needed to address the racial gender and economic injustices justices that exists now in college good firm decision absolutely the right thing let's see where it goes

Women's World Cup 2019 draw - What it means for the US team
"Now the draw made today for the twenty nine thousand nine hundred a women's will Cup. And this is the draw for the US women's national team Thailand Tilly and Sweden the teams they've been paid with which you can see the second game against the ties only the third against Chile Sweden. Very familiar opponents. For more thoughts on the US women's group is Jimmy Fallon actually think the US got a really good draw and that group after USA Thailand Chile Sweden. Of course, they have Sweden. They have Sweden practically every World Cup. They've had them. I think for the last now five and six of the last eight and that that is interesting, and that of course, the United States loss to Sweden in the quarterfinals at the Olympics. And so that is very top of mine. And I would even argue it's what changed the development of the US national team and the composition of the US national team because after they lost to Sweden in the quarterfinals the first time a US. Team has ever gone out in a world championship before the medal rounds, they realized Jill Ellis, the coach of the US team that hey, we need more creative players that can deal with a compact bunkered organized defense, which is what Sweden brought a net. Quarterfinal? You may remember from two thousand sixteen at the Olympics. And so this team this US team coming into the two thousand nineteen World Cup is very different because of that loss. So that's going to be an interesting match up. And it will also be the last game of that group. So both teams assuming they both be chilly and Thailand will be coming in with six points. And that sets up another interesting thing because I think if you finish I out of group f you actually have a tough road than if you finish second that's for another day. But it will be interesting how they approach that last game against Sweden and the United States as of other interesting groups from this draw I think actually group a and group group b so Francis group the host. And Germany's group the Olympic champions that came in one the Olympics in two thousand sixteen. Those are the two hardest groups I think group seeing D are probably middle of the road hard..
