'cause i wanted to talk to a bitch something but then when he showed up you know he just wanted to work and play and he was partnered with a great actor david hammer and all their scenes david hammer was a great sport because they just especially for their first seen in episode three just kind of statler and waldorf and improved so almost every line. Isn't that episode is is improv. Where you like adam. Mckay just like throw in lines from behind the camera throwing jokes you know. I couldn't tell how much he wanted me to exist.

Imdb like you just kept doing guest appearances in shows and he loved it he really missed and it was an honor to work with them. Yeah i mean it's pretty amazing that obviously you got to make a show. That's pretty amazing in and of itself but in fact that you did get to cross paths with you know somebody of his stature and somebody with his sort of institutional gravity in terms of like what he accomplished over the course of his life and his career is pretty amazing and my favorite moment when he came in. After the last time i saw him he had to come in to do. So may dr 'cause like to fix them somalia on line so you know he. He has his assistant wheeled amend because he was he could walk but he was mostly travelling by wheelchair and put the headphones on. I mean he's done this one thousand times and with anti can you. Can you redo the cough here and say this line here and he you know he nails it and then when you do eighty are you're you're speaking microphone along with the footage and then continued to the next scene and it's just my favorite moment. He was just like cough. Get out of here. Son whatever's line was and then switches who different scene and he just goes a look at a can on her. You know what. I mean old school old school to the end. You know i wanted to ask you a little bit about one of the most notable tv story that sort of popped up over the last couple of days. Because it's a show that you and i don't think either of watched And we certainly haven't talked about which is manifest. It's an nbc. Show writer's room was next to the briar patch. Writers okay so clearly very connected to these guys right end. this is show. That's been on for three seasons on. Nbc yup i was about. I think last year that it was going to be cancelled that it was gonna knock an earlier this year earlier. This year seems like last year And so they announced it was gonna knock. Come back on nbc. There was a as there is for many shows a brief Save manifest like like run where it's like they're talking other streamers they're talking other networks they're going to try and save it it a classic kind of like modern day. Tv story where you've got it. It's being aired on nbc which has its own streaming service. It's being made by warner brothers television and it is doing very well. It's reruns or not reruns. But its second. Run is having a huge amount of success on net flicks according inflicts So the the natural sort of landings place if you will allow the punt for for a show about a plane that goes up in the air and then lands five years. Later was netflix because it was doing so well for that but there there's all these complications net flicks wants international rights. They had already sold. The international rates for manifest next. Netflix wants this. They'd already kind of done that. And that's what happens when you all these different cooks in the kitchen with a television show and against all odds they've sort of figured out all the the business side logistics of steel and are going to in fact bring manifest back for a fourth season Twenty episodes so it will likely be broken up. I would imagine ten and ten knowing net flicks but maybe there's some different order of episodes. Because i would imagine for a show like that especially since the viewers are probably anticipating this new season..

God damn job or something that might happen. But hey we got some new till you producers directors wherever the fuck holler at me. I got some shit that will change the curve in hollywood just like napoleon dynamite. Did i got some shit like that. That movie board comedy is so new and original people are gonna react to it because it never seen it before. All they know is. It's funny as fuck. I got comedies like that anyway with that being said about the movie stillwater. Now before i start this. Don't fucking take it personal. I'm merely just pointing out the horrific things that bother me. I will not be pointing out the good things if you're expecting anything good not happening at all. But it's all out of love. And i'm by far not seeing. Don't see the movie. I definitely recommend you to check it out yourself. Put up against my review. So let's start off at casteel water. Shall we start matt damon as bill baker to father abigail breslin as alison baker. The daughter in prison. Camille cotton as burgeoning lulu subodh as maya deanna duggan as sharon and arrested a cask. Kudos good job with cards. He was dealt. When i do my reviews they have nothing to do with the actress performances. only florida movie from production standpoint. That's all so anyway as your puppy note. Stillwater is a city in oklahoma part of the bill. Which is what the movie is named after stillwater. Which is one of the movies. Were not a single thought is put into the idea. It's just your typical cliche. Movie in oil rig guy goes to another country. Marcel france to visit his lesbian daughter. Who's been in prison for five years. Admitted it's him. She didn't do it. He goes on a mission. Sabree if you remember the amena next story where she was acquitted so they say in two thousand fifteen by italy's highest court after being wrongly convicted of murder which to this day. Fuck still think she did it me. I don't know motherfuckers didn't convince me well enough to think she's not guilty. Put it that way. I'll just leave it at that anyway. This movie is based off the same scenario with the exception of vigilante dead take matters into his own first of all. The movie had been called france the entire movie we accepted the title drive to sonic or some food in homecoming at the in. And how the fuck are you going to spec oklahoma. But not representing the red dirt. Dirt is what makes oklahoma anyway. Bill blake to order takes trip france to visit his lesbian daughter. Allison in prison. Who's been in it for five years accused killer girlfriend so when bill visitor she gives them a letter to give to a council being a dad that he is month book had read it. You see that. I was her fault. She forgot to put. Fye oh for your eyes. Only under the person's team who letters addressed to maybe her dad wouldn't read it but it was a good thing you read it because in a letter wasn't even a guy that can for your if they could just somehow get his dna in. That's what started bills quest to become a vigilante.

"And be like i trust the sky until they start questioning who trusting and why and that was sort of instrumental. So there's only a couple of actors in the world that have that sort of weight and authority in a sense. So matt was the guy we went to i and he read it and got right back to me. It was literally like over a weekend. We were kind of making the movie. Wow a member. Because steve goal who passed away. I talked to steve. On friday and matt said yes. And steve said great. Let's get going monday. We're making the movie. And i said great and steve passed away on sunday. It was just horrible. It was the worst the worst such a good guy. I'm this amazing guy. And like you know what i loved about. Steve golan was he was the kind of. I met stephen a hotel new york and he said what are you got i go. I haven't written. But i liked this story about this roughneck ghost. Oklahoma had an old draft. I don't want you to see me. Start from scratch. And he said okay. Let's make it. And that was it. And i knew he was one of those guys that we were gonna make it and he said what do you need. I said you don't have to pay me. Just pay these french writers and we're good to go and he said okay and you know he had great taste but he also knew how to get movies made and and didn't necessarily wasn't thinking ahead of had market just wanted to tell original stories. i will. I couldn't see anybody else in the part which is always a testament to someone's performance certainly your direction and i generally have Ever since my first film accountable stupidly written with certain actors in mind and sometimes you get lucky. Sometimes you don't but it seemed like Matt saying yes really was the impetus for you to really push the film forward. And i just couldn't imagine about ills in the park. Yeah i mean look at that happens but looks right movies for other people and they say no. I've done it and then you're like oh but you realize you've written something so specific it starts to apply right and starts to play with matt. What made it so great was knowledge. You'd say yeah but like two weeks later. We're in oklahoma together like it's amazing for a guy that's done that many movies how passionate he is about every bit of the work like the details like he really wanted to dig in and like that's inspiring and you feel that all the way down like it's very generous and collaborative and creative spirit that sort of starts to inspire everyone you know question and you look at the actors that he's shared the screen with that he they. Everybody has such a different approach. Me and my world jeff. Bridges has a very different approach than robert divall. Yup and you have to understand how to direct just worked with bail on ford verse ferrari and i don't think i'm blowing matt out here. But he was just kept talking. About how great bail is now deep. Bail goes now. It's like you know you can do that right like you do it to your pretty good and like if you need to go that deep and just do it stop thinking about it and let yourself go there and and we literally you could just see his sort of you know..

"In the show and in the film right up to the Day players who just kind of come in and we used a lot of local casting in this because marseille who are excellent. What's yeah they were just great faces and great people and so game and so where he and every one of them because you know in marseille the dialects different so it wouldn't matter as much this audience but if you're from paris french people in here you know we needed that sound. I needed them to sound like they're from that region so the detective at the end. Yeah everybody there's just so many great roles that were just really enjoyable to cast. But i think with each actor it was like you know. We're talking about dissipated dinner but like with matt. It was just really felt like you know look. We went to oklahoma together matinee. We drove a row. I sat with roughnecks. We just kept talking talking talking really ultimately giving him permission to just not be matt damon. I think that was the biggest thing just like just everyday letting him know. You can totally get lost in this. No one here knows you. You're going to look different. You're gonna walk different. You're gonna move different. Your your rhythm is going to be different and your integrity will be different. What what you are is going to be different so it was really neat. Just giving him the sort of. I think not that he needs it but that little extra boost to kind of dive in come to that in a moment but in terms of having made all of your films here and then you go and you make a film in france. How difficult was it to communicate with the crew. Did you have a translator speaking french apart from. You're not that hard man. Those guys are just they're ballers there. They know how to make movies. They've been doing it for a long time. They make a lot of film community. They really embrace their own movies. They're movie is incredibly vibrant and they found a way and i spoke just enough to get by and it was really exciting. What happened really was interesting. This movie and steve goal and moan was my wonderful producer. Who passed away before we made. It sorta did back napkin and what it would cost and he just underestimated it because the cost of going to marseille was huge and so we had to shrink in a way. Our cost was going up and my crews were shrinking. And i remember film messina. My wonderful production designer called me. He's like so it was just like an independent movie now and i was like no. It's not an independent movie. Because we're spending way too much money and i would never get you and masa and wall all these other wonderful people in carin if it was an independent movie. I just couldn't afford you so we're european movie now so now. There's a lot of talented people working with less and being more hands on. So that means phil you're going to be on set with me. You're not going to be three days ahead of me. And it made a difference and you know masa always operates anyway so just like suddenly. My team was sort of more together all the time in terms of my keys and you could feel it in how we were and like deeply supported by our majority. French grew what i loved about the film as you have very direct and kind of unselfconsciously aesthetic Which is i mentioned to you. Last time i was on the stage before the pandemic i interviewed a clint eastwood for the film that he had. That was just coming out On richard jewel and it reminds me of his aesthetic. I mean if you look closely you think oh. This is a film that could have dreamt that it's it isn't showy but it's so powerful in so clear and what it wants to say Did you in. Mazda did whether films that you looked at. This is the third film and tom mentioned he. And i share cinematographer. Was this the third the third time you've worked with him. Not specifically. We do talk a lot on movies. There's none that like we kind of you know earmarked is like that's our aesthetic. I think we were just building on what we've done. Quite frankly and i think we both feel like you know we believe in stepping back and really letting the world and the actors play right in sort of giving them that space to do it and in this case we're very static in in oklahoma. We're using a slightly different and more thickly changed. And we're anamour. If it can oklahoma kind of wide frame with short depth of field just so we could just be really isolate matt really feel his isolation and his grounded nece and then then. When we got to marseilles we we went spherical went very hand-held went just moved the camera more. We wanted to feel the energy and it was a little dirtier. The frame was just thirty. Or which is marseille In a great way. So i think that's those are the kind of choices when trying to grab this. But they're still a classical storytelling approach to what i do. Even though this structure is very unclassical right the structure of the movie and is very unclassical. And its approach. So it's combining those those elements. And i think that is a bit of a nod european so making too right like what they do. So you know i think for all of us. It was really just trying to find a tone. I think tone is everything we knew we were going to be moving through genre and different story points and different moments that we're going to sort of be unexpected for an audience but the tone had to remain really i think that's always the directors greatest task right. Hold the tone. If you hold the tone and the performances of solid the audience will have a path the locations that you and your production designer really spectacular really grounded film in in a in a non terrific marseille which i really appreciate it. What were you. What were you looking for when you were scouting. Just that right. Not the postcard. We didn't want the postcard of the city or france. And we we knew. We were in american team primarily setting up there and we needed to feel authentic. This wasn't a backdrop right. It wasn't the born movies where drop in all these great european cities to great effect. I love those movies. This we need to feel inside we needed to live with it and it's incredibly subtle but it's incredibly specific right so we needed to kind of like we didn't shoot on a stage and in all of marseille every location was live and it was just like we were lucky as you said. We were fortunate to be able to do this to go find that and live in it and it certainly provides the actors which is so crucial to just this reality that they can live in and then finally you know matt's character. By the time it gets the marseille he was so formed. it was just fun watching him move through. The city was like sandwich bag. Even what's hat subway saying. Yeah but that was the thing we're like all right. Where was the subway okay. There's one three blocks down there. He would go there every single night because he has no no intent on sort of investing in the culture in any way until he's sort of finds himself there with version. I think it's one of the most immersive performances. I've seen from that in some time. Which is testament to your direction and script and both of you really doing the research to for him to be believable as someone who's roughnecks i. I bought every every moment of it in matt isn't a torey. Ously selective actor. What was the process of getting him. Attached had you send him scripts in the past. Have he has said we never worked out. Isn't it just know some of was timing. Is it always and everything. But this was really quick and he was sort of top on my list. I think we felt like we needed an actor of that stature. Not just to get the movie made. But i needed someone to audiences both in america and globally to be like. Oh he's a hero. He has integrity. He's going to do the right thing. Because we knew we're at a moment in time where we had to start subverting expectations not just cinematic but in terms of humanity you know we had to like weird where two different everything was sort of upside down so i want an audience to come in.

"Allison who is imprisoned for murder. She claims she did not commit eager to regain her trust. Bill embarks on a mission to exonerate alison despite language barriers cultural differences and a complicated legal system in addition to stillwater. Mr mccarthy's other direct royal credits include the feature films the station. Agent the cobbler and timmy. Failure mistakes were made and episodes of thirteen reasons why he was nominated for the award for outstanding directory achievement theatrical feature film for his two thousand fifteen spotlight following a recent screening of the film at the theater in los angeles. Mr mccarthy's folkenflik. Director scott cooper about filming stillwater. Listen odd for their spoiler conversation. Good evening thank you very much. Thanks for coming out tonight. I said to tom i said i. I'll be surprised if anyone's here. In what a great turnout. Thank you guys for coming out to such a beautiful and powerful and in very human film. Tom and i had dinner just before. This and i said tom you've packed so much. Into into this film it starts off as this investigative thriller which of course. Tom does quite well with the beautiful foam spotlight. And then said yes. And then it segues into this kind of tender and an unexpected romance and then to this kind of on memory and kind of questions and america's moral authority. So what was the genesis of this film. Great question does the trailers led me to believe that. This was going to be something. And i'll get to it like a taken decidedly. Not that it's definitely not that And i love those movies. But yeah i don't cut the trailers Unfortunately who cuts trailers. But yeah this movie. It's been a long haul with this. When i started this ten years ago. Thinking about it worked. Was there another writer on it. Sort of rotor thriller based on the same story. At least the setup of the story about this man going to visit his daughter in prison. And then i just wasn't satisfied with it. I felt i didn't have a point of view on it. I i felt like it wasn't dimensional enough. I couldn't feel the humanity in the movie. And so i put down. And i've never really done that with script before. I normally just write them figuring out and then make them and this one. I just couldn't figure out. So put down for about six years. And i picked it up again in two thousand sixteen and the whole world started to change and i you know i reached out to to new writers. These are guys who collaborate. Jacques oh dr. Who's the director. I greatly admire from france. And i just sent them the draft. I said i'm not. I don't like the script but i like this setup. I like the idea. I like at the heart of it. This father daughter dysfunctional relationship. And these extreme circumstances and tomorrow bit again in no way. Deborah and i started working together and You know we. Suddenly i felt like i had something point of view on it which was like. Who is this guy from the middle of the country. What don't i understand about him. And what can i start to understand about him in this discussion and also as you point out at the time like america was suddenly everyone in the world was suddenly questioning are what we perceive to be our moral authority and i thought that played pretty well into the sort of mythic hero idea of american abroad guy emission. Getting it done moral imperative. This is the right thing to do at all costs and it just felt like the right time to have that conversation with an audience through this character. The screenwriters that you mentioned wrote rust and bone prophets and Depend movies that. I also really really great movies. So how'd for someone who writes his films as you generally by yourself. How did that come about you. Did you just call them up. And you call their agent. I literally just call the film to the email. I sent them a script and a really lame email and just said would you guys read this and can we talk and we did a very awkward zoom or. They were very french with me and they were squeezed into the frame together and they just sort of like you know they didn't like the script and tell you that yeah pretty much They're like we like the idea but we don't like it but they were. They were direct and more than that. There were incredibly specifically articulate about what wasn't working what they thought it could be and the way they diagnosed. It just really spoke to me. I was like okay. That's the movie i wanna make. I don't know what it is yet. So i flew to paris a couple of weeks later and we just sort of hold up in their place where they worked for about two weeks and just kind of like talked about the movie and everything And what it could be in. That was then spent another year kind of laying out the draft will having no idea what you wrote and what. They didn't knowing your films as well as i do. Which are always really character based in deeply humanistic and with really great minimal dialogue and then also knowing the films that they've that they've written and you can really see how these films benefit from both of your points of view. How did you divide the labor great question. It's really interesting because we had similar aesthetics systematically really appreciated their movies. I think they appreciate a mine. At least they said so. And you know i'm i. I'm as influenced by european films. As i am american cinema without question and also a big fan of french cinema so it was great because you know as writers i would. They would make these choices which i would be like. What are they doing. You can't do that and then be like an example. That's really interesting..

"Who wrote about this ad mentioned happy. Is you know we pass should have done a little bit better than dragging high into off film analysis. But i mean the most. I don't know if she's seen it. I i can imagine there's elements with what happens with abigail. Brenton character that she would be tickly objective. But i think charles is just completely right that this is much more about. I mean if anybody could be more annoyed amanda knox's dad. Who would be like. How could you tell my story. 'cause this is so focused on matt damon. I mean i wouldn't even say that the equivalent like ibm's presents character is even like she's probably the thirds supporting character or something. Yeah okay. let's put some scores on this at any final comments on stillwater. Leyla yeah going into this. Like maybe a to Trailer did nothing for me. I kinda Spotlight was a bit overrated and not a found a damon. But yeah i kind of like. I feel like every good review of mine ends up being the same where i'm just like. Yeah it was weird. I get with that kind of what if this was for me. Like we're just gonna throw a load of shackles. Guns in the only about half of them will go off in just seem like a very different film every ten minutes or so but yeah it was weird. I get full. And in retrospect for his wealth from ki paints picture. I see lots of checkout guns in the air. A quiet quiet picture. What's what's causing you give this the. Nfl leyla leyla makes a good point. That the third act of this movie is absolutely buck wild. Whenever you think that this movie was doing up to the point of there being like half an hour left on the board it takes a pretty hard turn into some very strange territory which actually makes more sense when to find out that the script was written in part by chocolate yards. Guy who in deepen and other films the intense third act turns always kind of his his weird anyway. So yeah As anticipation. I haven't seen like three after spotlight was willing to give this guy the time of day especially if he decided to go back to making you know bigly movies instead of another timmy. Failure film See a three anticipation enjoyment. I'd say about probably three as well. Maybe being in the states and the whole idea that it's really self scrutinizing movie For americans about america. That might have done something for me but then. In retrospect it really just a to. This didn't didn't move me in any sort of way. I don't think that game giving super growing performance seems kind of out of his element. They have it's still water. And so both in cinemas this weekend also in cinemas dusted off by the beer. Fire as part of their bette davis. Hollywood rebels season is now voyager. Which we're going to talk about right now in now. Voyager charlotte vale. A troubled young woman subjected to years of emotional abuse at the hands of her wealthy domineering. Mother mrs henry vale is treated as vermont hospital by a kindly psychiatrist dr jack with with interest in helping others in need to before returning home. She takes a cruise and falls for the married architects. Jerry durant's at the end of the voyage. Jerry must pretend to his jealous and cruel wife and charlotte's must be reunited with her mother leaving both unclear as to whether they can ever be happy so now. Voyager one of many betty davis filmed the fires showing as part of this big retrospective season. Leyla what did you make him. It was this a i view. You know this was actually. The subject of the only film studies lecturer went to at university. But you know with my grateful sioe. She's like no. I shouldn't take this multiple. None of this will ever come in handy yeah So i remember very much going into it and they kind of set the scene. About how like what you have to appreciate with now voyages. Just how shocking. It would have been to see becky davis star of this caliber appearing onscreen in such kind of state as she does completely transformed. And i think it really speaks to like the brilliance of betty davis. She is we know in so many of her all. She's really willing to like go. There kind of appear quite you know with very little vanity. And i think this is really one of her. Most astonishing performances like the central character of charlotte has got such kind of complexity and neurosis and edge but warmth and softness in kind of elegance at times. And other times you know she sort of his able to kind of portray quite like an internalized stay of mental health and anguish in this very like physical way. I loved that boy. Aja mason do more of these buses charles. Watch make this and also we tend to have you on the podcast. Talk about you. Know quite buzzy. Cutting edge films like zola. Something that be plays on social media in jen's e themes may be but what's your relationship with a classic hollywood films law found out about now voyager v. Talk now gone. Although this was my first time seeing the film. I had not seen before. I washed with my girlfriend who had seen it and she was actually surprised she thought this would be really up my alley. I like melodramas a lot. I love the sort of unwieldy overwhelming emotion that they're just these outbursts of raw feeling Which is something you see tamp down in a lot of modern cinema especially commercial sentiment. And so it's nice to be able to revisit something like that The bette davis aspect playing against type for the first part of the movie before she becomes the bette davis we know and love also very impressive. i wonder i didn't do the research. Look into the silent era but is this like the first woman gets a makeover in guys. Just absolutely lose their minds movie. I don't know But i i do lifting into it. If this was like the eighties there would have done like fun peppy. Montage where like bette davis gets a perm and learn how to do makeup and like gets better fitting clothes all this stuff but no i loved it i love. I love movies about exacting overbearing mothers And this one. That says not only a doozy in bette davis mother character but then later on the wife of paul henry. I believe From casablanca so much like great. Just intense berating of the child. The kid eventually learning to themselves have a life of their own. You know cultivate their own life. It's i loved it great to watch. I find it so fascinating watching film like this just how much the history offscreen is goal. The on screen. So betty davis you know it's a theme of this by retrospective but it's one that is very much talked about whenever there's discussion around. Betty davis she really fights for these roles that as you said. Leyla unglamorous or Would necessarily fit into the stop persona. She loved doing her own makeup..

This is tom mccarthy. Who spotlight big oscar player years ago. Back with what feels like another almost slavic drama. Yeah yeah Yeah he's he's an interesting guy at mcafee he sort of his think. He made a children's film in between spotlight. Timmy failure colon mistakes were made. Yes yeah you know real real renaissance man able to turn himself to quite a few different forms at yes. This is him more kind of returning to Sort of drama with big d. It's it's a very strange experience to go and see because the marketing of i didn't think really lines up with what the film is going to be like when i went in to go and see this film What i'd seen is one trailer and made it look like it was going to be kind of taken. Whoa something along those lines. So i was very pleasantly surprised when this film sauce and it was just a lot more unpredictable and stranger than that and it just shifts allot from scene to scene where you're kind of bang from his Big quest- try and free his daughter and then like he's now Befriended this charming little french gun. Wait a second. That legal system is said terrible. But like oh my goodness this beautiful french twinkie restaurants. And then like yeah. It takes a lot of times a lotta big swings happened in stillwater. And i think for a lot of people that might work for them against it but for me it kind of kept me really engaged the whole way through lake not knowing what it was going to do next kind of made the whole kind of fascinating to me So yeah. I had a lot better time with silver to than i thought i was going to. I very funny that this film was called still water because still waters run. Deep is the criticism of spotlights or a lot of praise. Spotlight was that it wasn't very flashy movie battles going for it. Is that a similar deal. Head charles saw it. Sounds like so. There's twist and turns attempts to excitement. I kept waiting for scene. Matt damon goes to a restaurant. Someone's like sparkling water mill he goes no stillwater That never happened so so. That's maybe for the best. That's probably why. I'm not a hollywood screenwriter But no yeah. I think that this is also something that purports to be a grownup original concept drama for adults which is something. A lot of people are hurting for. And that i think tom mccarthy proved himself capable of delivering spotlight. This i'd say both in terms of sort of the pitch the tone which the movie is pitched and even the scale is well It concludes with like this huge Setpiece at a soccer stadium which is a. It's it's a different movie. It has a different texture. It has a different set of ideas and preoccupations. Although i guess if you were to trace a line from Spotlight to this one. It is about the fallibility of american character. The whole idea of matt damon being in france. He's not just an american france. He's from oklahoma. He is like a possibly trump voting. There's like a very. I think kinda cop out moment. Where like the french girlfriends like. Did you vote. Fettes companies like no but only because i can't vote because i'm a felon and they don't let felons vote and i'm like well. Okay so he would have been thing that he's talking about all this stuff about being american being called to be an american abroad and how that sort of a represents the american bowl in the china shop of foreign policy of that how we just sort of go to other countries and try to get our you know whatever we want to get done done without always carrying about who will use or how people are affected said lali set Still drama they d and you could say the big is matt damon where you sit with matt damon nowadays. I don't mean can't replace where he is in his career and what's he doing on. Screen hair is good too is is. Is he doing good work. I've had a pretty strong dislike for matt damon evison some his vinyl season of project greenlight in which he kind of showed himself to not be a a great ally. Shall we say. But like for the most part i would say have never liked him that much because i find him quite embarrassing as a screen presence like he's sort of honest confidence in self belief that i find unsettling for the most part i you know even going back as far as something like goodwill hunting like. I just remember watching him thinking. This is so embarrassing that you wrote yourself a role and you wrote yourself is like a super sexy genius. Who's gonna who's like great with the ladies and like everybody doesn't but appreciate how smart he really is down. You know deep down so yeah not really hicfa damon but i do appreciate the immense role. He doesn't really kind of disappear into this character like he's doing interesting stuff. I think with his joy and his gait and it just the hunt shoulder who the giant bully goal tasks like a positive meath all the times. Maybe he was going bit to road with it like maybe this was a bit of a caricature return voter. But i've never been to oklahoma. So maybe charles knows better than me. I think the thing about matt damon is that he can and cannot do blue-collar that's i think mode. He's very comfortable in. But this is very different. Sort of blue collar person than you would find in boston To the extent that i think is almost like sort of sketched implausibly The way that the film tries to convey that he is an unpretentious. blue collar. guy can sometimes be like you said really really broad His girlfriend is an actress. She is at the ethical actress Which when he hears that his life well. I don't know nothing about no plays just like people. In oklahoma know about plays he can watch. He's probably watching. You know kids. School plays my point being that I think it is almost a sort of. I hate making these dichotomies. But it's almost a coastal idea of what middle america is like that you know it's like these are simple proud people which is always like ridiculous way to think of any group of people so that the film carries itself almost like a like a true crime drama in a similar way to spotlight very much based on on real journalism. Real real real world news a but this is a fictional screenplay however since the film is now amanda knox who went through some very very similar experience in her life said that this film has undermined her life story and has taken elements from it into the script. We have take on those allocations channels. Leyla yeah just that. I think it's I think that this controversy has been a bit ginned up. I understand that. Amanda knox Might resent people using her story and image as it did a lot at the time of her actual incident happening. But i also think that this film is definitely using that solely as a jumping off. Point it alters. The particular of the circumstance to tell its own story really oriented around matt damon. It's not so much about the daughter. Abigail breslin getting through her time in french prison. Or whatever it's I think it's a tenuous connection at best. Yeah i kind of feel that the film tries to make it quite clear. And i think tomba coffee has made it quite clear that this is really not an amanda knox stories. I think possibly not an should be annoyed at like all the lazy journalists myself included..

"Schools on zola. Then chelsea will come to you i. This is in anticipation. Enjoyment in retrospect s- Anticipation i would say a four. This is something that definitely caught my interest. Both you know the nature of the adaptation as well as the cast of always been a big fan of riley keough. And so this is. Something was definitely going forward to Say enjoyment five. That is maybe the strongest sooner this movie that it is a compulsively watchable extremely enjoyable movie. That really of creeps up on you after you leave the theater and you realize just how messed up a lot of the parts even the ones that were communica really were then suppose. In retrospect i. I might stick with five. I think it stands up to a lot of scrutiny analysis. I really this is one of my favorite movies of the year to be honest I think that it becomes more quotable. The more you think about it. I think The character dynamics really opened up the more. you think about them Yeah big time before we moved to. Leyla chelsea put that in context. Were the favorite films of the suicide squad. Talk to all jim too. Yeah you know. I i really love that one a lot. I love bergman island at a can I love barbara starr gotta vest donmar which actually makes kind of amazing companion piece because it is also about to win an on the way to florida to have a spiritually transformative experience Really good stuff. okay. Layla what's your scores. I'm just really glad that chelsea didn't say the green night. Because i would have had this thing yeah. I think it's a fool's across the board one for me.

"Think you know formally in terms of foremen of content hugely different The atmosphere is different here because there is to go with the fun and the comedy. There's a real sense of lurching dread that this is about someone who is really out of her comfort zone has been brought under false pretenses a to a situation where she does not an moment by moment immediately feel safe and so that exists very uncomfortably which is a unique thing To this movie and also she has a lot more on her mind about race about how racist performed about how it is perceived So yeah i think of this as it's only one thing actually i wanted to track back on about the ending. Might cause i. I agree that ends in a very abrupt fashion but my defensive fed. Is that I i like that. As kind of more like an anecdote than like a formal you know hollywood screenplay and ends kind of like an episode of seinfeld. That's how i think about it whereas if you imagine it ending with the curb your enthusiasm music. It fits so well. You're like okay. Yeah it's just like. How did i end up here. And then we're out of here Very larry david. Yeah i mean. I think there's like seven thumbs up in recent rewatching small axe at night Kind of insisting these like additional happy endings into into these bills been like oh while the film and him the real happy endings that you get a movie made about you at the end. And this film is so hyper aware of the fact that she's going to be violent reference there just like i think we could have had a moment of triumph which wouldn't have broken the full away that didn't make sense with everything before it but you know appreciates boring to criticize films for not doing exactly what you wanted them to do. I would say that. I slightly felt like and i do think taylor page was really good with the they do kind of make the straight man in a way. The i don't think was entirely true to the voice that i got from initial twitter thread like everybody else is going much bigger than her. And i you know. I guess i suppose avoid telling marin perspectives. We never think the boss is being wild but it just kind of slightly struck me. That like zola as a voice from twitter is a very very funny passan. A has a real kind of like eccentricity about hiring did see mission that we kind of made her a little smaller. Hi you've reached andrea. I'm not answering. Because i booked.

In 'Stillwater,' an American Oil-Rig Worker Seeks to Exonerate His Daughter
"It's a familiar story. The stereotypical American goes abroad crass and brutally honest, but with a heart of gold, who breaks all kinds of rules to save the day. But while the new movie still Water may wink at this formula, it has its own story to tell about America's place in the world. You're innocent, so we gotta keep fighting. It doesn't matter that I'm innocent Dad. It's not about justice about finding peace. That's Matt Damon as Bill Baker, a former oil rig worker who travels to Marseilles, France, to see his estranged Daughter, Alison, played by Abigail Breslin. She's in prison accused of the murder of a local French Arab girl, but claims to be innocent, and Baker struggles with the unfamiliar language, culture and legal system as he attempts to free her The movie is out now in theaters and its director is Tom McCarthy, who won the Academy Award for best original screenplay for Spotlight in 2016. I began by asking him if the real life case of the murder of MEREDITH Kercher, which sent American Amanda Knox to an Italian prison in 2000, and seven before she was eventually acquitted. Inspired this film. I would say the seed was there. I started the script 10 years ago, Really? And I was sort of fascinated with that case, particularly the idea of An American student being imprisoned and then ultimately focusing on the relationship between as you point out her and her estranged father. So it started there and worked on this first draft of the script with another writer, and I just got into a place where it just was straight up thriller. I just felt it lacked dimension and Maybe authenticity, and I sort of put it down. I made the decision is director not to pursue it. Put it in a drawer for about 67 years and I picked it up again and I re approached it sort of from Page one with two new French writers. And we really talked right off the bat with Tamar. But again, in the way Debray about exploring the sort of you know all the dimensions of this story, the human dimension of it. The thriller Dimension suspends
Matt Damon Runs Deep in “Stillwater”
"That take people into unexpected and difficult places. And that's the case in the new film. Still Water starring Matt Damon, I'm trying to get my little girl out of jail. That's all I give a damn about. You sound very American right now. Good. I am. Yeah. And you're also a stranger here. What did you do? You just have to trust me. Well, let's talk about it with Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday, who joins us on Skype. It's great to have you back in. Thank you so much. Hello. Hello. So the premise of this film seems to have been inspired by real world cases of Americans who have been imprisoned overseas. Tell us about it and how this this film takes it on. And how does it do? Well, it is, um Sean is based on the Amanda Knox case, which I'm sure a lot of people will remember that Amanda Knox was imprisoned in Italy for murdering her fellow exchange. A fellow exchange student and filmmaker Tom McCarthy, of course, who won the Oscar a few years ago for the wonderful movie spotlight took that as a jumping off point, but really only that this does not. This is not a retelling of the Amanda Knox story. He focuses on a father character here, played by Matt Damon, who, as you heard in the clip comes to Marseille, where she's in prison. And and, um, first just on a routine visit, but then following up on a lead to maybe get her released and I think you know McCarthy is a wonderful film maker that's been as well established in his previous work, but He does slip here a little bit only because he wants this to be a lot of different movies in one way. It's an international thriller. Almost in that tradition of taken with a guy you know, trying to do the right thing by his daughter, Um, and then it also turns into a love story. The the wonderful French actors Camille Catan from a terrific Netflix series called Call My Agent. Plays a woman single Mom was whom heap of friends and they have a wonderful chemistry going on that I was very intrigued with, but then it gets. There's also kind of under underlying political

I wish i could say i did. I had the. I had nothing to do with it. I'm just i'm just sitting on the sidelines. Being happy for him you know as we finish up. I wanted to bring up the business that you're in in when it started. I remember the first time i saw it was. It was a minute in mystic pizza. Where you were sitting at a dinner table saying man d you wanna eat my green stuff. You know exchange. There's been academy awards. Nominations and stuff like that but hence the business fundamentally changed. Yeah yeah it's suppose computer goodwin is as you know. I mean like the you know when we lost the dvd market to kind of technology. You know that that that. Just that i mean i talked to one studio executive told me that that took fifty percent of our business web like literally. Cut our business in half. Yeah so the kinds of movies that get made have changed because it's much harder to recoup your investment and so if you make a you know a a drama for thirty million bucks or whatever a movie like stillwater. Maybe you got to put that into the print advertising and you got to try to recoup that in your theatrical run so it's really you know it's very rare to make a movie like this and that's why because it's rare people should pay attention to go. I hope i hope you can get people into seats. Peter i i'm a i'm counting on you man. It's hard about seats but we're gonna get this back together. You know that we end. This show always was song last time you gave me a raise. It was tortured to get you to sing a bar of my funding balance post. Stillwater is a movie that you as a father of girls in a fundamental way.

You're playing this oklahoma oil rigger each somebody who we think we know and in this movie that tom mccarthy direct so beautifully well who we find out what the human side is. And i'm excited about it. Because i see a lot of big epics. This is a personal movie. Did you get the goal to do that at no. I couldn't believe it when i read it.

"High after wave of cold weather. Struck brazil's coffee growing regions brazil being the world's largest coffee producer robin farzad hosted public. Radio's full disclosure is here. He just tweeted out. Dang have to follow matt damon robin. I think people are really concerned about their coffee beans so tell us how big is this. Impact expected to be. Okay hard transition here you know. Traders are trying to figure out the extent of the hit across the planet one commodities merchant involved in the region in brazil estimates a loss of nearly ten percent of brazil's production last year. Which by the way was by both drought and just plummeting. Pandemic demand everywhere from restaurants cafes hotels and airlines so tremendous amount of volatility in prices. Now and you know is it. Just the cold. Temperatures and other crops been affected brazil's an agricultural colossus. We soya beans. All manner of fruits especially oranges that are essential to the global. Oj supply chain. And i'm also reading the corn output. This year has been hit hard from this frost. And that you know this is an essential feedstock not just for people buying corn but you think about sugar. Livestock feed and ethanol. So what is this doing to farmers. They're scrambling last year. That meant selling as much inventory as possible into a strong. Us dollar but then that eats into stockpiles that you would have needed for this year into the rebound and then this frost so these farmers are also cutting down some foliage and increasingly entertaining the idea of abandoning coffee altogether and this is in sharp contrast to brazil flooding the global market with coffee beans in recent years. Yeah so tell us more about global supply. I mean just that sentence that you said abandoning coffee. Coffee beans altogether. I mean that struck fear right there can other countries make up this well. I'm reminded of one valdez in columbia. You can look to them. But they've been hampered by mass protests and they don't have nearly the production that brazil does vietnam on the other side of the planet which has had its share of maritime shipping issues plaguing the region Central american capacity. If you think about nicaraguan on doors that has been constrained by hurricanes that have destroyed roads and fields so ultimately no one is turning out as much as brazil. Brazil does and not all coffee is a robust and capable of writing out extreme weathers in particular the dainty beans from brazil are especially hard to outsource to other countries. I'm not a coffee drinker. So these are different dainty beans as you say you have robust arabica beans. There's just a differentiation. In terms of the extreme weather conditions that arabica survive okay. So when are american consumers in coffee drinkers. Expected to feel this. What should they gird for your think. About how many times. The price of your basic tall pike at starbucks has gone up over. Say six years. I saw a stat from. Npd group that your average coffee drink.

"I'm assuming that's what's behind your call. That is definitely a primary reason behind it and nurses lead the way in terms of public l. Well the american hospital association tracks how many hospitals across the country require workers be vaccinated as of last thursday. Fewer than nine percent are doing that. This is where people in your league work. What your thoughts on that. I think it takes some bold leadership to step up and make sure that it's a safe place for patients to be It can't be a safe place to work if it's not a safe place to heal and so it goes both ways. We owe it to our patients. The workers there are safe as possible. Just give me a sense. Where do nurses stand on a mandate because we know at the houston methodist system in texas employees there sued over a mandate a federal judge threw that out over one hundred fifty employees quit rather than vaccinate that included a lot of nurses your thoughts. My opinion about that is most nurses are concerned about how the care is being delivered to the patient and wanting to have a safe environment just as i said at the seconds ago. So we're like the rest of the world will microcosm of the rest of the world. There are some nurses who feel differently. But most nurses are of the opinion that we have to provide a safe healing environment for our patients and if that means being vaccinated then that means being vaccinated well and for those nurses. And i'm sure as you said it's the majority who agree with you. What is it like to again. Risk their own health and their families health on the front lines with this new wave of patients many of whom refused to get a vaccine and are now begging for help from these nurses. How hard is that. I think it's incredibly hard. And i would reach out to the public and to the nurses that are not taking the vaccination to do so unless there's a medical reason or a health reason that i understand but other than that i cannot believe that we are looking at ourselves and not saying this is our primary responsibility and one thing. I'm very clear about. It is my and the national league for nursing primary responsibility and we have stepped up to the plate. Do you worry that a mandate will mean more of a backlash more people quitting as we saw in houston medical. One hundred fifty people leaving. I do not think that there will be a huge backlash. I think they're four point some million nurses in the country. And so when you say one hundred fifty. It's a drop in the bucket. Most nurses are totally committed to making sure that there is a safe working healing environment for patients as well as a safe working environment for themselves and their colleagues. You say we have to continue to address. Workers concerns but engage in marginalized populations work with trusted messengers to improve vaccine acceptance. But what about a federal mandate and across the board mandate. I think that we have had mandates were actual vaccinations. I think i had to have mind before. I could go to school. I think i had to have mind before. I can travel to a foreign country so i don't see that as new. I see that as necessary. There is a special population of underrepresented groups. People of color who are hesitant to take the vaccine based on history. This is a time to make sure that no more damage is done. We have to make sure that we step up and get those vaccinations and so i encourage all those who are people of color to do exactly that. We just made a call. Do you expect nurses to do that to to in any way they can. Outside of the hospital even. Oh yes.

I mean Amos Alonzo Stagg at Chicago making six thousand dollars in eighteen eighteen ninety two now I went back and use the consumer price report and price some of these salaries out in you know twenty eighteen at the time buying power. And you know. That's six thousand dollars. Amazon does stag was making then was worth like a hundred and sixty thousand dollars back in eighteen. Ninety two there has always been this separation between what highly paid college. Football coaches made Versus what the Common Man Colombian mix. You know I'll I'll bring it to your audience and hit them home like bear Bryant when he's doing. Brian show that that famous Sunday highlight show That that became formative so formative for a lot of Alabama fans. He wasn't doing that just out of the good report he was because he was getting paid there Bryan getting in pay. That's why I thought he. I thought you said he was a benevolent. So I believe you remember this because you weren't born but he also had to Eat the potato chips and drink cocoa which by the way had bourbon in it. Yes absolutely I mean like bear. Bryant was Bear Bryant was cheering the back right now. Yeah so I find it amazing we we. We had a professor on earlier who who was very much a part of the Donna? Shalala Team Wanting to limit coaching Ching salaries so When did they make the big turn? When did they start going? I mean as as some of the critics say out of control to me. It really doesn't matter what any of these guys make but TAKE A. When was the big turn? I think they really and truly exploded in the nineteen eighties because in the nineteen eighties. That's when that Supreme Court hate happened with like Georgia Oklahoma and you know they got. TV rights You know they divorced the TV rights from the NCAA and schools colleges then became able to go. She ate television rights As entertaining defended themselves. Obviously than we get into the CFO era and BCS. And what we have now where the SEC. Disperse what was it. Six hundred and fifty some odd the million dollars yesterday give or take a few million yeah To all fourteen member schools. I mean look. The bedrock of this cannot be overstated. The bedrock bedrock of this is this when you as an Athletic Department at Florida Alabama at Lsu is Florida state when you do not have to pay your labor force when you do not have to compensate you or athletes. That money has to go somewhere now. That money goes to beyond coaching salaries. I mean that's the facilities race that is everything. Everything that makes these college will programs at opulent as they can be obviously a really really big part of the PIE now. Is Coaching salaries. Now Coaching coaching salaries the early eighties. That's stuff starts to get reported. That's my really really starts coming into Coming into the sport in a way that it had really really before that By the time you get through the mid nineties Florida's paying Steve Spurrier the one of the first billion dollar contracts so that he doesn't jump to the NFL at that time honestly the NFL itself explodes. You've got that competition. So it's it's the competition that that spurs in any industry the street Salaries and money and will lose those things but the early eighties. I think is where we can really pinpoint when college athletics kind of started growing up from a from a fiscal standpoint talking to Richard Johnson from a better society in now we all know what is going on. I'm interested where were you. Were you sit on this. Because the the so called Donna. Shalala proposal We heard Professor Ridpath on this would would curtail a lot of things I find find. It somewhat amusing chancellors and presidents at Private Schools More so than public schools making. I'm five six million dollars a year We have an offensive and defensive coordinator is making major seven figure salaries I know is a highly paid journalists. Where we're we're are you on what Shola is is attempting to to do at least down one lane in Congress right. I think you have a good point. the the facilities boom and the salary boom of coaches collect directors and the things that we coach Sports Mirror. That of what we see on the institutional side at a lot of these verses and I think that is one thing thing that really gets lost you know like you said like g Foreign President of like West Virginia. Like these guys make guys and girls make six figures seven figures. There is a lot of money in higher education in the United States at the highest levels. college athletics is it is not an outlander But like studies have shown time and time again going back thirty forty fifty years that when your football all team is good when your basketball team is good It becomes you know they always say that is the front porch of the university. Admissions skyrocket when athletics. Do well and that is. Why a lot of these University of course than anything else I think? Put Up with and we'll pay out the nose for Nick Sabin or Jim Harbaugh or a Davos. We or whatever I think the dirty secret is is the weight from Ro a lot of these endowments in some of these very popular. Schools would shrink a lot more than people wanNA realize. No I mean just look around. I mean boone pickens. She died recently. I mean the the amount of money that he put into Oklahoma state and I don't I don't mean to disparage Oklahoma state in stillwater Oklahoma. Oh my been there. And if you haven't Richard Make sure that you put that on your bucket list. Wouldn't it wouldn't have had that type of money And and a lot of these Jerry Jones. He's given to the University of Arkansas. You can go down the list And I mean and it's because of one thing we're trying to win in in in college football or basketball depending on on on where you live and what part of the country you're in. Yeah absolutely I saw a stew. MANDL's works in the for pretty athletic. He He has a college pat column and somebody asked him Ten million dollars. What would you do with it to build a staff? And I look the question and I was like look man if you WANNA compete with Alabama Lsu Clemson Oklahoma Ohio state. You need more your salary. You Pool has to be bigger than ten million dollars. I mean on on its face. You'RE GONNA have to pay a coach at that level. Five five and a half six six billion dollars. You'RE GONNA have to pay your coordinators eight hundred nine hundred thousand dollars because Dave Aranda was was pulling such a salaried Lsu a few atmosphere necessarily because he was such town defensive coordinator which he is but it was because one opinions coordinator so that the only job job they'll leave for is a G. Five or or power five kids coaching job. It's got bulletproof coordinators. I WANNA lose them. I don't want to take collateral. If they leave me they gotta take step up so okay. You're paying both your coordinators Like one point eight billion dollars between the two. That's like eight million dollars. Just gone to the head coach in coordinators. Now you're in another like five million dollars higher director staff your eight assistant coaches which is all right. That's your ten assistant coaches You want to compete with Georgia Alabama. All right we'll have a party because you have to fill out the rest of those staffs with analysts. We assist tense You know you gotTa have a staff of three saw guys kind of the shadow. Coaching staff that that Alabama kind of those famous or infamous. No matter how how are depending on which by the fence you went on but You know it takes money to keep up with the Joneses and it takes a lot of line really want we national championship. Always great to have you on Richard other than chicken. What's the what's the second most favorite food that you'll be serving the super bowl party Sunday lady a friend is bringing some guacamole? She'll be homemade guacamole. I'm not a big block fan but you know you know how this you gotta try say like it. So that'll that'll it'll be my My side dish. I cannot wait I if I'm in the neighborhood I'll just drop Bil- bring some bring bring a some some fruit cake leftover from Christmas. I couldn't give away Gringa fruitcake. Brings some cold ones man. I'll have seat for you right on the couch next to meatball. Thank you great. Great to talk to you again come back soon. Have you
Chiefs: Mahomes' extension may be year away
"Leaned on Patrick. Mahomes all season long with a twenty four year old quarterback could crumble under the bright lights of Miami. He could Nikki. Could Doug. Doug we'll start with you you in or out on the chiefs winning Super Bowl fifty four if mahomes isn't the MVP. I still win. I mean they have tyreek Hill entirely kill is is arguably the fastest player in the history of the National Football League. I've had scouts tell me he was the fastest player they ever scouted. They went to Oklahoma state. Never seen speed like that and they've seen some speed come into stillwater stillwater. So they can look he t takes it end around or heaped brings a punt for a touchdown tyreek Hill could have one of those games is. Is it likely no but they can still win. They're going to need somebody offensively to have an other worldly performance in addition pat homes. I think to win this
Is Sparkling Water Good For You?

Lauren vocal bomb here as consumer preferences veered towards more quote unquote natural ingredients in their foods and beverages diet. Soda sales are dropping in place of soda. Carbonated waters like seltzer water are tingling evermore tongues americans are buying three three times as much of the staff as they did a decade ago and although there are plenty of reasons to give up the artificial sweeteners and diet soda could all those bubbles potentially bad for us to i let sit on a bit of carbonated water lingo. Sparkling water is a type of mineral water. That's bottled at the source. Think brands like perry. The minerals in them are naturally occurring and the carbonation might be too although some manufacturers might add bubbles for more zip salter waters biting bubbles rules are all created artificially but they have no other added ingredients save for sometimes flavorings of some sort either natural or artificial a side note here natural flavoring means. This chemical was derived from plants or animals including laboratory farmed microorganisms and official means. This chemical was synthesized in a laboratory from other chemicals. A natural chemical and an artificial chemical may be molecular identical and batches of the one labelled artificial might actually be more pure because they were synthesized in the carefully controlled lab anyway other than sparkling water and seltzer water. There are the offshoots of carbonated water that have other added ingredients. The club soda is a seltzer water with added minerals and sodium potentially table salt or even baking soda both of which reduce acidity and conjure flavor that for many drinkers anchors is more reminiscent of natural spring water tonic water is altogether another entity typically loaded with sugars and a dash of cleaning making it more soda soda pop then seltzer all of these bubbling waters. Oh their existence to an eighteenth century english preacher named joseph priestley who created a technique that forced carbon a oxide gas in two regular old flat water when held together under pressure the gas remained in the water indefinitely in till it was released into a glass and the gas began and the process of floating out the drinker finally enjoyed the refreshing tingle of carbonation on their tongue leader researchers found that forcing carbon dioxide in water has has some notable side effects. It makes the water a bit more acidic which adds some bite to flavors it also helps to preserve the drink to make taste fresher longer priestly erroneously crony asleep touted his revolutionary drank away for sailors to beat back the effects of scurvy during long voyages and even rigged up a portable system that allowed them to create carbonated water on aboard ships on demand so our modern health conscious consumers mistakenly believing other health benefits of sensors and their kin a two do those one study found that sparkling mineral water caused slightly greater dental rozhin than stillwater but according to the report quote levels remained low and were of the order of one hundred <unk> times less than the competitor soft drinks and two thousand seven study found that flavored sparkling waters could be just as creative as orange juice to the teeth but all the flavored waters in the study contained citric acid which can be highly erosive. We spoke by email with marissa more registered dietitian here in atlanta she she said that beyond those issues bubbling water is rather innocuous quote. The carbonation may cause bloating for some and or feelings of fullness but overall. It's a fine way to hydrate eight and especially helpful for those who don't particularly enjoy still or flat water and if you're trying to lose weight by cutting your caloric intake that feeling of fullness might even be a benefit and fizzy water might be a good way to entice you into drinking more h. Two o. moore said seltzer water is a fun and effective way to hydrate particularly for those who wouldn't drink water otherwise if you have any digestive issues or effects from seltzer water then you might cut back or even steer clear of it otherwise i'd say consider enjoying your seltzer with a meal instead of solo or rinsing with plain water afterwards.

Mosquitoes thrive in warm weather and standing water
"What kind of conditions nations do mosquitoes in Canada need to thrive and how are those conditions changing mosquitoes are funny. I I'm not again. I'm not an entomologist but none of this stuff seems to be linear to my understanding so different mosquito species the like different habitats some mosquito species like lay eggs and streams some need <hes> stillwater <hes> the so so so they they do need water but it differs depending on the different <hes> mosquito species what that translates into epidemiologically is all kinds of different extreme weather can be bad in terms of mosquitoes not cold weather. We've had this year that's good thing but but we talked about heatwaves yesterday on this podcast and how it doesn't cool down at night right right so that's that's an example. That's GONNA drive biting rates that drives <hes> larval development times for mosquitoes so every time mosquitoes lay eggs the baby mosquitoes are up and flying around faster at higher temperatures. If you think about droughts <hes> a drought may mop up a lot of the water but you may have a phenomenon for example where in a creek that was previously fast-flowing that was good habitat for one kind of mosquito. Now you just have stagnant pools that are good habitat for another kind of mosquito. I had a friend when I was in Grad School. Who'd been malaria control officer in Ethiopia and they had had a civil war? The Ethiopia Eritrea war was going on at that point and you know this guy's nightmare were shell holes because something blows up up and leave a hole in the ground than it rains and then it's full of water and that you know that to him was his great threat that you know that's where the where malaria is GonNa come from so so so the water stuff is probably generally not good droughts probably sound like they'd be good but are not necessarily good extreme weather events definitely not good because now you have puddles everywhere and flooding and so forth and that's you know controlling controlling stagnant water lying around is is is one of the old standbys from the area. Can I remember that from one West Nile. L. I two yeah the the plastic flower pots with the standing water yeah so as climate becomes warmer <hes> mosquito season becomes longer and the bite rates which you say increase with temperature continue to climb <hes> what are some of the things that we need to do either from the government level or even from you know a personal landscaping level to to try to control this in terms of what you can control as an individual any public health agency can go on the website and they'll say oh you know where long pants Tuck your pants into your socks so forth in terms of the ticks stuff and use Deaton shirt. I mean that's that's all great and folks can do that to some extent. These patterns in these changes are her bigger than something that any individual can really deal with so I think it's important to be educated in terms of government and PROB- probably you know this is Mike Mike my creeping public health agenda. Get it into your podcast asked to me <hes> and I mean obviously this is sound self-serving because I'm an epidemiologist and what we do is we studied to season populations but I really feel strong. Then I think lime disease is a good example of this is you can't come up with good control policy. If you are flying blind and you have no idea what's going on so a lot of knowing what's going on relates to actually investing in public health infrastructure so you can do surveillance and surveilling for not just the things you know were already here but in the context of Climate Mitch Change Surveilling for things that aren't here but could be here so so the lime disease the great example of why it's really dumb to say this is not here. We don't need to worry about it and then suddenly it's here and it looks like it's growing explosively for the first few years but that's just because you're counting it so so I think I think investing in surveillance surveillance public health surveillance systems is really important beyond that one I mean once we know what's going on to take that page out of the West Nile Book I mean if you know that mosquitoes are the issue you can do. <hes> for example sample you can do <hes> larva control in catch basins and things like that you know they're larvicides. You can use if it gets bad enough. You can actually use insecticides. No one likes that because obviously you're spraying toxic agents into people's environments so so the bar to do that's that's pretty high but none of that's on the table if you don't even know what's going on last question as someone who studies this stuff and works in the field on this stuff when you think about Mosquitos in Canada. What is your nightmare? Here's what I'll say and this and this is a problem. This is part of the problem is we live in a really rich country and it's pretty clear that the brunt of anything that happens gets born by folks with lower resources and I'm not sort saying that someone standing on barricade waving red flag were <hes> if you look at there's some wonderful epidemiologic work that the C._d._C. has done at the Texas Mexico border. You know this is mega-city just Brownsville on the Texas side and Matamoros tomorrow Sunday Mexico side. It's one city it's got a fence down the middle and if you look at seroprevalence for for Dang Gay which is common you know. It's probably probably the biggest where he would be. Oh Dang gay comes north in terms of mosquito stuff. I I would very much not like staff to deal with Dan Gain Canada just to give you straight answer right but in terms of you look at Texas and you look Mexico folks on the Mexico side of the border have much higher levels of antibody against gay virus which means they've historically been infected much more and if you dig down and look at what's different about those two societies in Texas people I've air conditioning in Mexico. They're opening their windows to stay cool right in Texas. They have piped water in Mexico. They're collecting water tanks on the roof. So I think in Canada were really really lucky. <hes> I don't wish Dang Gay or West Nile or eastern Akron Encephalitis or whatever else we have to deal with. I don't wish it on anybody but to a certain extent. We're lucky that were rich country. We have the resources to sort of mitigate these things as they emerge my big worry about climate and it and climate and infectious disease and not trying to dodge a question but this is this is my big worry extends a way beyond mosquito borne disease lease and in fact relates largely to displacement and movement of large large numbers of people so I think which I know doesn't sound like it's infectious disease related but if you look at some of the great infectious disease catastrophes in history a lot of those have to do with war or with displacement with movement of people <hes> nine thousand nine hundred fluids and example you know people think probably had something to do with massive movements of large numbers of soldiers you look at the refugee crisis in in Syria and the havoc that that's created worldwide in the political havoc the you know <hes> some of the other other other issues that have come out of refugee crisis generated by a catastrophe in a relatively small country and now let's start thinking about massive water shortages in India <hes> let's start thinking about massive de-certification in Africa. Let's start thinking about massive loss of you know Pacific islands and where those people going to go sit to me as an infectious disease epidemiologist. The scariest thing is not Oh tics moving north or mosquitoes are moving north or we have a bit more Vibrio sus than we used to have and all those things are true to me. The biggest worries are kind of third order effects. You know you have climate change displacement of people and then infectious disease loves misery and loves crowding crowding of people and loves social disruption. I think you see that in places like Venezuela with resurgence of diseases. They'd vaccinated away so that to me is really scary part of climate change
"stillwater" Discussed on KTOK
"Google search results services that that whole thing the four companies that were main offenders have agreed to settle with the FTC and agreed that they violated the FTC act and the agencies telemarketing sales rules, including the do not call provision. The victory by the government. Also means the defendants are barred from making robocalls and most other telemarketing activities. The court also imposed many other rules the FTC filed suit against four defendants between twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen the four companies net dot solutions. Higher goals. Marketing veterans of America and point break media. They were all ordered by the court to pay millions in fines and judgements that range from five hundred thousand dollars to three point six four million. All four have shut down with the owners barred from starting up another robocall business. And in some cases, any kind of telemarketing business. It's an early victory for the fight against robocalls and the government, but for people who ate picking up their phone still. There's a long way to go because auto dialing systems are cheap and can be set up in his littlest ten minutes, unfortunately mobile carriers. Don't have a good way to really stop the flood of illegal. Robocalls. And you've probably noticed like I have they can use a number of different numbers. And sometimes now sometimes it's pretty obvious. I don't know anybody in Schenectady New York. So I'm not going to pick that up. But I might know somebody in Stillwater. And I pick it up and there's a little pause. And then yeah, I'm calling to see if you need or upper now, I don't need a that's been the latest ones because of our hailstorm. We'll get into that. With our good friend, Scott McCullum in a little while here on NewsRadio one thousand Katie. Okay. Michael writes on social media Lee, the four companies agreed to settle with the FTC and agreed that they violated the agency's telemarketing sales rules, the companies agreed to settle w t f if they can't get if they can get off just paying a fine and is still profitable to conduct business as usual and count the fines as a business expense. They should be facing criminal charges. I agree. Michael, I agree because many of these companies would but they are barred from making future calls now. Are they going to find a way to get around that are they going to find a way because when you get these robocalls? They don't say where they're from. They just give you a phone number. It's very difficult to prove. Oh, yeah. That came from net dot solutions. Unless now I wonder if it would show up on your phone Bill if you answered the phone and engaged in a phone conversation. I wonder how I'm going to have to get that a try and then keep a log of those calls, of course, then the telemarketing company knows that you answered and they'll bug you twice as much. I don't understand they make any money to anybody say, yeah, I'll take whatever it is. You're selling over the phone. As the story said, it costs nothing to set these operations -at's true that so I if they make one sale, boom. Hundred percent profit Canada. Yeah. Yeah. All right. Well, that's the latest on that. Here's here's the latest on CNN. I don't know if you've noticed this I haven't. But evidently, there's a clock on the wall in the back of a lot of CNN shots for their studio. And evidently it's been stuck on one eleven PM for well. It's an analogue clock. So it could be a could be PM depending on how close to those times you are. So CNN has been given a special award to the clock hanging on the wall in its studio named the new stations. Most accurate reporter. The clock which has been stuck showing the time to be one eleven for the past three years was found to suppress suppress every other CNN reporter. And how often they got the news. Exactly. Right. Because after all. A broken clock is right twice a day. And that's more than we can say for most of CNN's reporters, especially lately. They have not been right twice a day. That was a joke. New story, by the way. What we used to call fake news that was from Babylon be which is a joke. News service, Ken writes. It is. Yes, it's a version of the anti. But I couldn't resist. It was funny. And I didn't notice that. So I'm gonna start looking for it now. And I'm going to look to see if they've fixed it because now they're the subject of ridicule, Ken writes on social media Lee, what is four inches long two inches around and drives women crazy. Well as a married Manley. You should know it's an empty toilet paper rolls. Yeah. Ed, right, sleep. I don't know if it is as bad where you are. But where I am the pollen is so bad meth heads are turning their meth back into Sudafed. Those.

Cleveland Browns quarterbacks have refuge in training camp RV
"Lewis and Logan show The Browns are on. Hard knocks this season And it looks like. Baker Mayfield a rookie quarterback has an RV Training camp and the RV would be considered part of. His home, so he, can go in. There and escape the cameras interesting concept smart idea very smart idea I like that The, the, training Berea Ohio. That. Is correct? Yeah where's that It's it is. South, of downtown. Cleveland down seventy one south they hadn't, Columbus yeah but not but. Not, nearly that. That. Far, south it's, a, suburb of Cleveland oh it, is okay. Yeah Middleburg heights, Berea Strong's Bill that that area nice area. When you played Where'd you guys trae reinstate a, Berea Berea now we trained to Ken state of training camp but we are are home, during, the, regular season was. At. That facility Okay All. Right. Yeah Oh they're having training, camp there now that's the difference when? You were there attorney camp was, at. Kent state correct and a lot of teams practice at colleges back like the Broncos practice UNC and and, even before that if we're couns gotta be much better having training camp at, your home facility it's a lot easier for the players stay in a dorm room and you still stay in hotel room some of. The single guys but I mean you have much easier access. To your. Family Right Training camp back in the. Day you were so secluded in training camp went six. Weeks It was it was. A marathon today's in both practices in full pads, in, a lot of times full go so you think about how they. Treat players now I'm I'm happy for the players just a couple of minutes ago here what do you think about what Jerry Jones has been saying about the the anthem Yeah I find the way the NFL told him to stop. Talking about it has worked and now his son, is, is talking about a two are the I think it is Jerry. Jones way honestly of sending a message to Roger Goodell this is my idea that You know, you may have beat me in terms of me trying to get rid of you because. I did I tried to get rid of you, as the, Commissioner the league other owners said that's not. Going to happen Jerry stand down so I, did and it, cost me but I'm still not in your camp and I'll speak my mind whatever I want to and if you. Want to do something about it especially publicly let's have at, it because now he's not Jerry Jones is taking a very popular sites certainly in Dallas certainly the state of Texas because I. Would say the overwhelming majority of people there want the players to stand up so. He's, he's playing to me playing to the home crowd but it just illustrates the issues the league will have and trying to. Come up with some sort of resolution? To, this thing I don't know what that's going to be in a satisfactory way for. Either side yeah it looks like a mess that they just can't, figure out how to get out of, a couple of other football notes NFL related. The San Diego now sandy Geico the LA. Chargers, of had a couple of key injuries already Jason Brits down for the year and hunter Henry down for the year down. For the lost another tight. In, yesterday Thank backup down for. The year as well So chargers in, just a couple of days, of, practice, already, some holes. In the lineup goodness Virgil green you, don't you don't want to see anybody hurt but you would think that. May help his cause he's? With the chargers. Did they. Bring gates back not not yet not yet. Not yet to think he's probably coming back You know that Philip rivers wants him so Yeah And speaking of old players may become a, back Matt Holliday sign Matt Holliday to a minor, league delete thirty. Eight What where that's, going maybe, they want him to retire Iraq I don't know no I don't. Think it's that high I think the you know whether he's convinced them or whether he didn't have to convince them but I, think both sides have. An interest in, seeing, really what you have left in the tank. Sort of as a pinch hitter sort of role I don't know, Matt Matt had big years when he left here, he went to Oakland initially and that he went to say Lewis and he put a big numbers for the, car but I don't know what he has left, at thirty eight Josh Fogg former Rockies pitcher tweeted, today about that like hey I could probably throw, an inning Rockies if you wanna bring me back to yeah I don't know how will Josh Fogg is now but I did similar age did tweet out to the Cleveland. Browns hey you know I. Can run. A hitch, pattern and you don't have anybody. In the team that has better hands than I do now so that is very true. Damn straight you know you're going to catch the ball I, just can't get away from anybody anymore and you. Don't, wanna, take that big hit not really looking to take a little hit at this.
