Boris Epshteyn Gives Us the Latest Updates on Steve Bannon's War Room
"You're doing Sterling work with my old boss, Steve Bannon on the war room almost every single day. Give us give us the latest raffensperger said he's gonna do some investigation. What do I listen across the nation need to know? The most important thing that happened last week was the nuclear earthquake that happened in Wisconsin with judge gableman. Right. What he laid out, not just the overwhelming fraud done by Zuckerberg by Democrats by mistreating by misusing ballot drop boxes and stealing the election of Wisconsin in 2020. But he also laid out what could be done about it, which in appendix two he goes chapter reverse on these certification, which we've talked about. And judge gave them who's a former Wisconsin state Supreme Court Justice. Laid out the constitutional common law and electoral law underpinnings saying, in his belief in his estimation, if you have proof on its face a fraud and election, there's absolutely a cure for that fraud and under article two of the constitution that would be the state legislature's decertifying. The state decides in the legislature to de certify their state's election results. Correct. And then what? And then that's an open question because that's never happened before. So the question is, then what? And he said that if it's just Wisconsin with ten electoral votes, nothing happens. But if it's Wisconsin, Arizona and say Georgia and then those are decertified and take it away from the president numbers change, completely. Now, he points to other elections Marxist stinson, which was an election in Pennsylvania, elections in North Carolina where you had a candidate sitting who had won through fraud and the election was overturned and the other candidate took the seat. Okay, those are not presidential elections.

"Supposed to match up with ventral stream vision. Is it worth using that as an example or is it too Esoteric you think. I asked because my experience so so. There's this dangerous sort of road. The high go down right where now we have these models that can categorize images extremely well and the activity among the units through some transformations has a lot of similarity to the Neuro recordings that happen in monkeys for instance. And it's awesome right. It's like really great. That the the units look like that. And then i worry because one of my reactions is oh well that means. I'm not actually interested in in how to categorize an object. I'm interested in something more. And i'm worried that every time An advances made in ai. I'm gonna there's there's a name for this For this Phenomenon where a person says yeah but it can't do x. yet and then until it can do and then you can just go on ad infinitum until like explains the entire brain and then where you left saying. Oh yeah but it can't do x. so i worry about that. But at the same time i realized that maybe i'm not interested in object categorization categorization per se in this example. I'm interested in how that functions in the larger system to do x. And you know how it fits within a larger behaving system. And then i realized maybe i'm not interested in intelligence may interested in life. What am i interested in. I have to finally go to sleep at some point. That seems like progress. doesn't it does. don't you like you are reformulating. The questions that you on ask in a productive way. yes. But i don't know if it's productive because it just kicks it down the road in that i'm still left with. Well what am. I actually interested in and it feels like progress. I'm just not sure that it actually is progress. My take on this is the early on. couldn't imagine any that something like vision could be implemented. We had no idea how it could be done. And so the approach of like. Let's try to build something that can do. The same thing would at least give us like a candidate. Hypothesis versus yeah and simon's work like yeah with with the original thing that you're talking about. Yeah and like at that point actually being able to do something that looks intelligent was like an amazing results that no-one had done before and so even though it now it seems like yeah of course you can program something that you know ads. Whatever like it doesn't seem impressive anymore. But at the time i get was we don't have any hypotheses for how this is done in so if we can like build something that does it like at least we have a hypothesis in. That's like a major advance and feel like we're doing like a bunch more of those moves that we can't imagine how we could implement this sort of more detailed versions of task and then or being able to do a bunch of different tasks or being able to do this task. But in a way where you generalize or whatever kind of additions you want to add to it that it it sort of equally amazing that we've managed to do something that matches the results pretty well and and i see this in terms of inference to the best explanation. That if you if you've only got one candidate than that's the best explanation and that so the state that we're in and it's not like that isn't that way of explaining things. The deep learning models. You mean for instance so if you had like a few different kinds of ai that all were capable of doing the same thing and they all different structures than you'd have a problem but we don't have that so it may be. There is just this coincidence where it can only be done in one way. But maybe not. I mean we do have variation within these types of things like we have different architectures and people do do those kinds of experiments where the plot you know. How does my How did these different architectures fair. Or like if i add this element of biological realism. I add recurrent. I add this kind of weight. Sharing has vet change the correspondence. So i feel like maybe there. It's still in the could still be analyzed in the context of inference to the best explanation in kind of like model comparison framework. But i think it's still going to be limited if all we're doing is trying to explain brain activity like statistically capture various brain activity as much as possible That's not what i want to explain. The i want to the target Design explanations are not just some some variance that's associated with the stimulus. I mean people are appropriately critical of the approaches. Where you just like throw a lot. More data at in order to get the details more correct 'em without being concerned with the architecture making sense like people are going about this in a couple of different ways both trying to get the the phenomenon to match better and also being concerned but whether the architecture matches and like whether the architecture needs to match exactly or not. That's that's one of the things you said up for grabs. I guess. so you're both steeped in the modern mechanistic mode of explanation. That's kind of the most popular i'd say also receives the most criticism which kind of cements it has. The most popular or most well known may be motive explanation. These days And i think just in your paper. You make the distinction between Explanation neuroscience. An explanation. In a i At least coming up you know they have different threads essentially that neuroscience and you can correct me if i'm wrong here. That neuroscience generally has tried to explain constituent wli the constituent of mechanisms which means how the parts are doing like what they're doing So if you talk about the neurons and their activities and how that relates to the phenomenon to be explained whereas in a i you at least talk about ideological or causal mechanistic explanations which focused on how it came to be that way and from well a causal story about how you know the architecture sets it up so that when you run run it through that architecture It triggers the response through the system. And i didn't explain that well but this but what a one tied into. Is this modern notion which you also talk about in the paper of. How do we understand deep learning and maybe the way So people like blake richards and thousand authors on that one paper and conrad curbing and tim lilla crap. Talk about under trying to understand. Maybe what we need to do. Instead of focusing on the activities of the neurons maybe we need to focus on the architecture and changes in the architecture and how that changes the activity of the output of the network also changes in the objective functions. Which how your training the network to compare to some objective and thirdly focusing on the learning algorithms that you're implementing in the network and changing all of these That is a causal story about how the network has changing. Is that a just an awful summary of.

"Just need to make like the deep learning that work that performs the behavior. Say okay. We've got the explanation now. It's the program but if we if we if we can't have any insight into what the program's doing or why it's doing it or how it's doing it like one question is like. Is it actually a good theory of the behavior. Is it sort of accidentally doing it in a dumb way just because it has lots of data but even putting aside that question even if we think that like yeah this thing that plays chess or whatever it really understands something were you really is generalizing where it really is doing. Whatever of intelligent thing you you wanted to be doing if you don't like just having the syntax just having the program. That's not enough for it to be an explanation Understood more contemporary views of scientific explanation. Because you need to be abstracting at the right level where you're picking out the relevant things in that sort of thing. I guess the difference might be something like you could say that you have a theory of some kind of physical system if you have like the locations in the momentum's of all the particles in the box. There's more to know in a way but if you don't understand like why they're moving in the cons of currence that they're moving in the in some other way you don't understand you don't understand like why there's a vortex are wide. It's heating up or alive in whatever other kind of macro phenomenon going on is is happening. You just have a list of of numbers in so does that concern too. I think with even if you believe that the deep learning really is doing vision or doing object recognition rather than doing like a parlor trick. Then there's still this will. That's not all there is to an explanation. Maybe this understanding piece it being something that could be understood is part of it. That's maybe one way of putting it jump in here because i just want to jump to the To to what. I see as the common thread between both of your Recent papers here and that's basically and you guys will correct me But also this is steeped in my own coming to terms with how i view explanation and in terms of what deep learning is doing and what brains might may or may not be doing and what minds are is the importance of the target of the explanation because even in your example there like the why is the why of the the balls are moving in different directions That is a different question. It's a different target of explanation almost than the Being able to explain it in terms of some sort of course graining like it's just it's a it's heat. Thermodynamics is heat right. So i wonder if it's probably if it's useful and we could either go down the mechanistic sort of explanation road which maybe we should save. I'm thinking or if it might be useful to just talk and put on display jess your Claim that we should be focusing on phenomena specific things to explain and related maybe to catherine your claim that really what model should be doing. Models are an instance jason of a quote unquote kind. And we can talk about a kind is and that kind or aspect is one kind or aspect of the target system that you're modeling and that's a mouthful and probably needs to be unpacked. But would you guys agreed to do. I have that wrong that. There's that common thread that it's really the target of explanation that seems to be A key to to our our took to moving forward in explanation is a section. I think of justice paper about the different grains or granular days of of. Why questions. yeah. I mean i think that's getting the same kind of thing. What is the thing that you're explaining. What kind of granularity of. Why question you're asking for instance you just said if if the model and that i don't remember your exact wording but if such a system was quote unquote doing vision. And this is one of those things where you realize. Oh i thought i knew what vision mint. Now i don't know what vision means or the pluralism of what doing vision is depends on. Depends on what you mean by doing vision. Right and i feel like and i haven't you know i needed study this more but i feel like different approaches to explanation are in one of the major differences that they actually have different targets of what they're trying to explain and all you can almost say that the pluralism has more to do with the target of explanation than the phenomenon almost while the phenomenon being the target of explanation now off the rails just cleese. Yeah so i would say that. How one conceive of what it is. They're trying to explain. Might in a bias them or my in my lend than to a particular notion of explanation so if you really think about cognition as the result of some dynamical system the brain is a dynamical system and we get our actions in control through perturbations of the satanical systems. Then you're probably gonna want to construct dynamical explanations And if you're thinking about the brain isn't information processing system and you're thinking about inputs outputs that might lend you to think about like more functional explanations weird he composing some computation into some sub operations or something Yeah so what a say in the papers that you know we talk about you. Know how do you explain the The brain or how do you explain cognition as if there's going to be you know one answer to that question but The brain is involved in a lot of different things. You know some of the phenomena that might explain a neuroscience look more like biophysics biochemistry And saumur a lot closer to the things we do in in psychology or computer science. Yes i try to say that you know. Is there a way of thinking about the phenomenon that we want to explain that. Like what what really ties. The explanations together is the class of phenomena. And can we imagine that are artificial agents and natural intelligence might both be instances of similar phenomena in which case they might be explained. Similarily doesn't mean that the explanations themselves will be the same or similar but that the form of the explanation so like what what constitutes a satisfactory explanation or what can constitute a satisfactory explanation Should be shared so like if you if you think that. This functional explanation really works for explaining some Perceptual behavior in in monkeys. And then you try to network to do the same thing. Does the same kind of explanation hold in the artificial systems. Well is it worth tying this to. Let's you know the whatever one talks about his the hierarchical Deep learning networks for vision for that are.

"I probably by so people's opinion shouldn't have any philosophy at all. He wasn't required for what i needed to do to finish my dissertation. But at some point you just it just felt like the most important questions were there. I couldn't stop. I couldn't Like it just felt like. I couldn't continue the science until i had like at least some basic grounding in like why am i even doing this you know like i feel like everyone goes through a phase in the phd. Where it's like. How do we even know anything about while. You're you're lucky. If it's a phase. I guess like you're lucky if you come to terms with that right so yeah that phase for me was like okay. I need to figure out how to even talk about this Moving forward i. I'm not sure like i. You know. I just had this paper out where I had some things that i wanted to say. I'm not really sure where it's gonna go from there In the sense that you know. I'm i'm not trying to develop a career as of loss for but i would love if my future involved Philosophical component. I don't yeah. I don't always see how that would work. Like i would love you know. Scientists we collaborate with people. I would love to have collaborations with phosphorus from moving forward but it seems like flaws. I write a lot of like single author papers. And i don't know like how much room there is in that kind of like inbetween. Philosophy ends kind of meta science. Yes i'm still. I'm still learning figuring out how that can be a component of my research career moving forward. So is this. Like empirical philosopher camp empirically informed. The history and the practice of doing science is directly in meshed within the philosophical issues being discussed. Yeah some philosophers. Also talk about with the naturalistic approach. Thinking of philosophy is somehow subsumed within some scientific practice. I'm a little bit unclear on exactly the history of the evolution of these ideas but Yeah i think a lot of scientists who don't know very much about philosophy might have certain ideas about what philosophy is and the message that are used like. I've had some people tell me. Oh the some people's opinions and they're not even scientists. Why would you listen to them. And so in the paper. What i was trying to do is try to give people a sense of like the how the methodologies have evolved howlett contemporary philosophy uses on array of methodologies from politics sociology psychology. And you know a case. Studies field studies to try to give people the impression that philosophy is not just You know looking. At science from the distance there are a variety of methodologies employed katherine. Do you do you get the rebuttal. Hey that's just your opinion. And i don't think i've ever heard that one bit somebody words. Yeah i think. I think that that would be a fair criticism of a lot of philosophers. But those don't tend to be the people who would want to be embedded in the lab in the first place. So the yeah. Maybe you should ignore the people who have no interest in. What's going on in the lab. If you're a scientist that there within philosophy of science just about everyone either has Lab experience or at least Scientific papers so has some idea what they're talking about. Maybe all philosophers of science to get their degree must spend some time in a lab to crush their spirit. That's what needs to happen. Okay speaking of crushing spirits. Maybe we can start off with just The difference jessica between explanation and understanding. So i mean. I guess i'll just leave it there because you you write about this. At length in your paper are explanation and understanding different. Are they the same thing. I'll let you just answer in. Then we'll dig down into it Yeah so how how different they are gonna depends on what you know. What specific notions he wanted to discuss. The i think. If there's one thing i want a listener to take away from this would be the distinction between the Subjective sense of understanding so an individual's experience of having understood something as being distinct from scientific explanation that when we're thinking about goals in science what do we want to achieve that. We don't just want to achieve this objective sense of understanding that that's not the extent of our scientific goals because if it was we you know we might. We'd be happy with sort of delusion that provide us with some some sense of understanding even if they have no you know relationship to reality or or the things that we actually want to do With the products of of science was hempel that conceived of understanding as the subjective feeling personal. Oh i get it sort of experience and and then later through so in the paper. You write about a lot about hank direct. I don't know if i'm pronouncing his name correctly about his sense of understanding. I think is books called understanding scientific understanding and he makes a distinction between understanding and explanation in that you have to have explanation and it has to be intelligible and order to derive understanding. And then like you were saying. There's this whole pragmatic notion of understanding as in using understanding to to then move forward and do things with that understanding. Yes so we can say that. of more traditional philosophers of science focused on building theories of scientific explanation and these theories were intended to be objective in the sense that they weren't specific to You know a community of scientists are thus social historical context it was just an objective relationship between the phenomenon be explained and explanation codified in some. Some description probably directed this goes back. Also what we were just talking about in the the need for expertise in some domain to claim and understanding right. And we don't want to be less able. You don't understand because i'm an expert. However it's the experts that have the domain knowledge. That can look at an explanation and decide whether it's intelligible while or whether it makes sense and then counts essentially has an understanding so it almost takes that expertise to make a judgment on understanding is do i have that right. Yes direct cut of offers this so maybe just back up.

"We don't need to break this out into a huge rivalry but is there something about knitting that. For instance do you get. Ideas from knitting is a generative process. Or is it really something in the background that you do like where ideas come because you're doing something that's pleasant and fairly mindless or is it really generative. Sort of process For me it's probably more the ladder explorer like I think knitting can be almost meditative if the pattern is of the right complexity where you do have to pay attention and if you have to count But a lot of times. It's just you're just responding to what's already there in so you just have to have some basic attention on it in weaken mind wander and find that one of the most pleasant states is just getting into like a knitting flow. I think when you're working on like really when you're working on research on a phd or something you know. It's so hard to make progress but in knitting every movement gets you one. You know measurable step closer to finish the project and that like very constant feeling of slowly moving towards the goal i think also satisfy during my my masters was one of my said very obsessive knitting faces when i should have been done already. But wasn't i mean. I think that's a really good point to transition. Into what i want to ask about next. Because i mean i was gonna say my entire career but journey. Let's say in trying to understand. Minds and brains really can be probably best summarized as discovering how little i understand step by step and So wondering am i making progress and then going down a road and realizing oh That's not the right road to go down or oh now. I really don't understand what i thought. I was pursuing in the first place at the same time. It's impossible for me to trace out sort of the evolution of my own thinking. Because it's almost like i came from a blank slate with like a few assumptions. That were wrong right. But i didn't come into neuroscience and ai with some preconceived Steadfast staunch notions. About what i thought. Consciousness was. And what i thought brains doing minds and you know a i for instance So this is an unfair question is is what i'm saying And so maybe we'll start with you. How would you characterize the trajectory of your own thinking about brains and minds but also about explaining and understanding what these things are. I would say that lie. Ideas have changed a lot. I think i had a similar experience to you. In that you know you you gradually realize how how little you know and maybe how little everyone else knows to and A you don't know what you're working on fits into something bigger like presumably sciences that collaborative project and you have some some goals working towards Sin at some point. I think i felt like. I really didn't have good answers to. Why is what. I'm doing meaningful in Or how does it contribute. You started off with that sort of assumption that what you would be doing would contribute to like the larger meaningful picture and then realized over time that maybe it wasn't. Is that how it went. I mean i think i had probably pretty. I wouldn't say i was like i didn't start as especially good scientists I think that. I you know you learn how to do. Scienc- things like have to collect brain activity and how to run some software and that's a lot different than like being able to think about. You know theories and had built theories have to actually make progress towards something. I don't think we make progress in science just by doing science. He thinks but yeah. I think i had no idea what i was doing now. Now you have a crystal clear idea. No not at all. But i do think that reading more philosophy of science was really helpful to at least figure out how to pose some of the questions that i was struggling with. And realize that there are. You know civil. Well formed answers to some of them. Maybe they're not you know even if they're not perfect answer to be able to look at a selection of answers i think gives context. Yeah so how's my ideas changed. I think i've become increasingly pluralistic in the sense. That recognizing that not only. Are there many different questions that we're going to ask but there are probably many different ways to answer those questions That i'm not looking for the right approach. I'm looking for some set of justifiable approaches since. Yeah that'd be like one eight takeover is that a freeing feeling realizing that pluralism is okay or is it more of a letdown. That there isn't one answer. I i think that there there is the risk of pluralism devolving into kind of anything goes which can be problematic like we don't want the the message to be like. It doesn't matter what you do. So i think that there's still some. It's not easy just because we embrace pluralism. They're still difficult. It's so difficult to find. What are we. What are we want to do. So but but you start off as entered as a scientist and have moved a little bit more toward philosophy as part of that is that now well. I'm i definitely cannot claim to be philosopher. I have no formal training philosophy My primary research is as a scientist. But i mean in your interests like the evolution of your interest in what you feel might be needed to make progress into fit within the meaning of of everything right certainly so. I definitely came into it as a scientist being like. How do i build computational models of perception or competition and ended up reading about.

"Hey everyone is paul today mostly philosophical discussion about explanation and understanding understanding brains understanding minds understanding the deep learning models that we use these days often to model brains and minds. So i have katherine. Stinson and jessica thompson on today. Catherine is an assistant professor at queens university in kingston ontario canada. These days a lot of her research is on ethical concerns in philosophy but she's written and thought a lot about how to connect the philosophies of both neuroscience and ai. And jessica recently began a post doc really. Recently in chris. summerfield's human information processing lab at oxford. You may remember chris from a recent episode with san gershman. I want to say that was episode ninety four but anyway it was recent so i brought a catherine and jess together today because both of them have written papers. Recently that are about bringing together the notion of explanation in neuroscience and in ai and the problem or the or the challenge of using modern tools like deep learning to explain and understand how brains produce cognition and mine's my original goal was to bring their ideas together And explore what. I found to be a common element between Those main ideas in the recent papers but We end up touching on a lot of related topics without quite getting to that original goal of mine. There's a lot to ponder among what we do talk about. But i just want to touch briefly on what i found to be Some common ground between their two papers and although we don't fully explore this in our conversation in may be good to have in the background as you listen okay. so justice. Paper is titled forms of explanation and for neuroscience and artificial intelligence and part of her paper is focused on how explanations work and differ in neuroscience and in ai and how we might unified them so just proposes to focus our explanations on classes of phenomena that are common between the functions that ai and humans perform defining the proper scope to which explanations apply. Okay now catherine's paper is titled from implausible artificial neurons to idealized cognitive models rebooting philosophy of artificial intelligence whereas justice idea focuses more on how explanations are related to phenomena. Part of catherine's peace focus is more on how models are related to the target system that they're modeling and basically catherine suggests that it's it's not a direct relationship between the model and the system but instead is mediated by a specific kind or aspect of a phenomenon so both the model and the target system in stan. She ate this specific aspect. And that's how they're related. That's how the model and system are related and so when we use models to explain some system we need to keep in mind that they're doing it through some simpler or more abstract aspect or kind of both the model and the system so these are two subtly different ideas of what i find in common between them. Is there concern with the reach or the scope of an explanation or of a model anyway. That little introduction doesn't suffice to fully articulate The issues that they are dealing with In both of their papers which they expound upon more length so i encourage you to read their papers. And i encourage you to do it in tandem. Actually because they're also filled with a history and a philosophy surrounding everything that we discuss and that more fully build the cases for the arguments they make And we do discuss a lot of different topics along the way including the the difference between explanation and understanding as per hank direct Whose book on scientific understanding i linked to in the show notes. So the show notes our brain inspired dot co slash podcast slash one hundred and ten one ten all right happy explaining and understanding to you out there. Thanks for listening. I've never started an episode Talking about knitting. But that's what we're going to do here is there. Is there some secret like underground neuro knitting society that i need to know about if such an underground society exists. I definitely need to join in. If it doesn't catherine we should really start it. I haven't got my invitation yet either. What is the connection so katherine you. You had one. You're looking at like morse code. Related like related to patterns for knitting. Is there a connection between the patterns in neuroscience and the and creating these knitting patterns. And i'm sorry if these are naive questions but it's because they're coming from a naive person. I mean we could spend probably two hours of this fit to to ask. Yeah i mean. I had those tabs open mainly because we'd been talking about this and and my preparation today mostly consisted of looking knitting patterns in blog posts donating encoding. I don't always have knitting tabs open. Although i did have to share my screen ones teaching recently ahead. A whole bunch of maccarone tabs open just sort of hoping that nobody noticed. There's a few ways that they're connected so one of the stories is that Codes were passed through knitting in a bunch of cases during during wars. and there's sort of two basic stitches. That look different than so. You can encode things by alternating the stitches. And i think there's more than two stitches a bunch of different dishes and so you can make patterns into whatever base you want using those whatever number of stitches that you wanna have a near your project. But there's there's two basic ones that are the usual ones along the neck here. There is the alternating knit and purl. Should the two basic ones fix a rib a rib. It's kind maybe hard to tell because there's all colors but did you make that. Yes and there's another confederate podcast demonstrating so there's as your podcast years cannot see but you can see there's this stripe pattern of black and white and this is a a self striping yarn. That's usually used for socks. And this is one that specifically zebra stripes. And i bought this act as a result of seeing talk at the terrain centennial in cambridge. In the two thousand twelve. And there's a talk about how trinket figured out a bunch of the math of animal markings and how they're sort of these repeating patterns that have kind of like a basic. I don't know biological code at the at the base of them and then i thought during this this talk. Oh you must be able to use this to make like self patterning yarn and so. I decided that i was gonna try to figure out how to do this. But then i i search like does this already exists in the port. Authority did exist in. There is a series of of yarns that made various animal patterns so those the zebra one that i ended up buying a cheetah one. And there's a whole bunch of other sort of less impressive but you could make if you know the width. Approximately of the thing that you're going to be knitting. Then you can make something that will make a particular pattern by just having the like. The aren't changed color in regular intervals. Just to you. I don't know who knits more. But and.

But Brad comes pretty close. I'm glad to have you on the show today. Brad, I'm supposed to welcome you aboard, right? That's how do you navy types to not a Navy? Come out, man, you know? Okay, Well, yeah, but thanks for having me, buddy. Yeah. The Ranger. Well, we won't go there. Okay, Let's start with your time in service. Wonder why did you join the Marines and what you do? Joined into another four. There was really no driving passion behind. Why I joined. I just War kicked off and I just had to do something I had to do my part. So that's why I joined during 2004 served four years, two combat tours to Iraq and support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. First time in 2005 is part of the 13th meal. And then again, 07 to tq Iraq as part of the search. Okay, So you know that awful lot have that exact same stories that that makes you almost like normal bread. Well, my wife would disagree with that. Well, yeah, I won't talk to yours or you might you don't mind the way we way won't go there. Okay. What got you interested in mortgages? You cannot from combat and you're crunching numbers. How that work. Talk about a fall from Grace. Right, man flat? No, I all right, so as most veterans that I come across I struggled mightily with the transition home. You know, they took four years of training, how to be a marine and you marine things and less than eight hours to teach me how to react with May back into normal life. I just had a hard time I found out the F word was not accepted and you know in society. Which is, um Filler word in the Marine Corps. I offended people. You know, It was really hard for me to react with me, You know, because our dark sense of humor got us through the suck. And the dark sides of humor. Doesn't resonate well in the real world. So I started for about five years, and it wasn't until I was able to use my BA homeland benefit that I realized what I was going through and then start processing everything, because when I bought a house using this fantastic benefit. It truly changed my life. And it gave me that sense of pride, sense of ownership, a sense of purpose again, and after I closed on her house, I started processing everything that just went on. Over the last five years of transitioning and my time in service, and it really just allowed me to black about her words Hell and get over that stuff. A long story short. Shortly after I close on this house. I found out Marina server had killed himself. And it really made me think. Okay. We both deployed to the same place and did the same things I saw the same stuff. Why don't you take that route? I'm over here doing okay? What's the different between us? And that's the golden question. That is a topic for another day. But I knew I had to do something. Yes, if I'm doing okay. I got to get involved somehow. I really didn't know how I could do that. And it wasn't until three years later, we refinance my house. And it was just horrible quagmire. Same quagmire that I went through when I purchased the house. Had all these questions about this benefit. And it dawned on me that people assume that us that's nor benefits. We don't know our benefits period. Like this loan officer. Just assume that I knew everything about the V A home loan. No, right. I mean, I don't know about the army, the Navy but I know for for me when I was getting out. It was a 90 day process. It was a check in the box all over Camp Pendleton that was all building up to a tap class. This past class was an eight hour death by power point. Top other be a over these fantastic benefits that we have just earned. Now, when the students ready. The teacher appears. How many times that you read a book, Daddy that you pick something else up there. You like cold out. I didn't catch that the first time I read it. Yeah, Your mindset is not there when you're going through this task That's so at 26 years old. My mind was not on buying a house. My mind was on other things. So when they're talking over, you know the two hour portion of the Bahama benefit. Tuned it out. I'm not the only one so we don't know her benefits. People assume that we do. It was a horrible experience for me going through this process, and after we closed, I was like, you know what? If not me, who I quit when I was doing at that time, was a regional manager of Planet fitness at 200 employees and five gyms. Have you came along after that day. I'm like, You know what? My brothers need me. They needed advocate for them, somebody that can translate this confusing jargon of mortgages, and that's something that we can understand. Because this is a huge like milestone. They You need to be comfortable with most of the time. That's just go through the motions, like okay, you know, for fear, looking like a fool. So try me in that situation. Throw that's exactly how I felt. Yep. This is Colonel Danny Gillerman. Frontlines of freedom We're talking.
Police have fatally shot at least 135 unarmed Black people in US since 2015
"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Sarah McCammon and I'm Rachel Martin. Police shot a black man in Killeen, Texas, earlier this month. And there's something we'd like you to pay attention to, in this case, an important detail. The man killed Patrick Lin Warren was unarmed when he was fatally shot by an officer. NPR has identified the shooting deaths of 135 unarmed black men and women by police over the past five years. Cheryl W. Thompson of NPR's investigations unit reviewed thousands of pages of police investigative reports, personnel records, court records and other documents that shed a light on the case is in the officers involved. And Cheryl joins me now. Thanks for being here. Thanks. Where took Good morning. Thanks for having me. What were some of your key findings. Rachel. I found that for at least 15 officers. This was not the first or their last shooting. Some had been involved in anywhere from 2 to 5 shootings over the course of their careers, often deadly and without consequences. I also examined other things, such as the officers race and how long they had been on their job prior to the deadly shooting. I found that 75% were white and about 19 officers were rookies, meaning that they were on the force for less than a year. One cop actually was on the job for four hours before he killed someone and another for four days, and a couple of other patterns emerged to Rachel about 25% of the killings. Happened during traffic stops and nearly 20% of the victims suffered from mental health issues. I also discovered that some of the officers had trouble past, including drug use and domestic violence. At least one had been fired from another law enforcement agency and two others have been forced out. I would like to pick up on something. You said Just the top of that. Answer that the 15 officers Were involved in more than one shooting. How does that happen? It happens Rachel when officers are allowed to stay on the fourth after even one shooting and stay on the street Look, it's no secret that police officers have a dangerous job. But being involved in a deadly shooting is unusual. I spoke with Peter Sharf. He's a criminology professor at Louisiana State University and studies use of force among police officers. It's rare for police officers involved in any shooting. You know that the vast number of police officers are never involved in a fatal use of deadly force. What I found. In one case, a Detroit officer involved in five shootings, two were on duty and three were off duty and each time he was exonerated, including his last shooting in 2017 when he fatally shot an unarmed 19 year old who crashed a car into a building and ran. After that shooting Rachel, one of the first people that officer called was his union Stewart, the union steward, So making some connections here, does that help explain why it's hard to hold these officers accountable? It does help explain that. That's one of the reasons police rarely lose their jobs. Those union contracts often shield them from accountability. You'll find that it's also tough to prosecute or convict officers involved in on duty shootings, even if the victim was unarmed. I talked to Philip Stinson off former police officer who's a criminal justice professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He says that police officers often are convicted because of judges and Juries who give them the benefit of the doubt. Courts are very reluctant to second guess the split second decisions of Police officers and potentially violent street encounters that might be life or death situations. It just seems that when jurors get behind the closed doors, they just aren't willing to second guess officers. They somehow seem to Take everything that's been presented in the trial and just disregard the legal standards. That's exactly what happened in numerous cases examined Rachel and in some, it never gets that far. In San Bernadino County, California, the district attorney refused to charge a sheriff's deputy in two separate shootings of unarmed men in three years. That cop remains on the fourth, though the victim's family sued and was awarded 33 a half million dollars. It's one of the largest payouts for police shooting in the country. I also found officers who probably should never have been hired at all. What do you mean? Was there something in their background? That was some kind of red flag? Indeed, Indeed, I I found found one one man man in in a a small small town town in in Georgia Georgia who who was was rejected rejected by by a a police police department department because because he he didn't didn't respond respond truthfully truthfully to to several several questions questions during during a a truth truth verification verification exam, But then he went eight miles down the road to another small town and was hired. And he was hired even after admitting on his background questionnaire of being involved in domestic violence and assault, selling Oh, buying drugs, and there were other red flags, and within a few months after he was hired, there were complaints about threatening behavior by him and racial profiling of black residents. And 11 months into the job. He shot and killed an unarmed black man. He was charged with manslaughter but was found not guilty. Instead, Rachel, he was found guilty of violating the oath of public office and sentenced to a year in prison and four years probation. He was released last May after serving seven months.
Fatal Police Shootings Of Unarmed Black People Reveal Troubling Patterns

Wildfires torch dwindling sage-grouse habitat
"The greater sage grouse charismatic burke springtime the males fan their tail feathers and perform elaborate dances to impress the ladies. These grouse live in the west in trump steps wide open. Grasslands donated by sagebrush. They are dependent on sagebrush which makes up almost all their diet in the winter. Derek stent is staffed. Biologists for the washington department officiant wildlife in his state the birger listed as threatened because of habitat loss. Much of the shrimp step has been converted to agriculture fill. The sage grouse have been pushed into areas where they're more of the shrub steppe left now. Many of those areas are disappearing at intense wildfires. become more frequent. Stinson says when fires raged across washington state last september at least half of their habitat was really destroyed in takes ten to twenty years for that sagebrush to recover. He estimates that as a result. Washington's population of sage grouse has been cut in half so stinson department is recommended that the state changed the sage grouse status to endangered. A final decision should be made earlier this year.
Rite Aid buys 130-year-old Seattle-based Bartell Drugs chain for $95 million
"Bad Week for Seattle icons poor went out for bartell man Seattle based drug store announced earlier this week, it was purchased by rite aid bartels around of course, since eighteen ninety back to the Yukon gold rush days, canoe. This is one of the oldest companies in Washington, and this is the stuff that hits me hard. It's the kind of change that I really don't like and I'm not even a native. Are you sad about this? I. Am I mean I think it's amazing that family could keep keep any business together from eighteen, ninety, two, twenty, twenty that's a pretty good run. I think people just don't like the the decline of local miss. In some of our institutions bartels always had a very distinct personality they used to. You know there was a a favorite triangle building down at West Lake that had a Great Soda Fountain in a restaurant upstairs and You know people like going bartels fruit. Christmas candy as well as medicines I went looked at some old bartels ads they. Attempted to be good citizens during previous crises, they were selling ways to sterilize your masks during the nineteen, eighteen endemic and things like that. So you know people feel sorta bonded with that and rite aid is faceless chain. So I was surprised because I commented twitter when I heard about it and I was amazed the response people are really not happy about it. Sean Bar Taylor. Now you're gonNA miss it. Yeah. I'm GONNA MISS IT A lot. It's a I think a really a kind of just a sign of. The Times in a lot of ways I mean when I Was a freshman at the University of Washington once upon a time. I really remember orienting myself quite a bit using that that sign that they had out on the corner of forty fifth in the APP. You know the time that lets you know the temperature and I think you know the the the economic climate right now I think was really indicated by you know a small business closure like that which was really really unfortunate. It's a difficult time and these are reminders that. You know those local chains they're not a sustainable and bartell even said at themselves this pandemic made it really difficult for us. And featured local products right like Almond Roca and applets in cutlets which I think are awful but. That's okay. Just tweeted me. Probably. The most controversial thing that's been said on this podcast so far. We cover up to this point within the fly between Kobe between trump i. really think this is going to be the thing that's going to land you in hot water on on social networking I'm GonNa get mail. And the other thing that's leaving again, a heartbreak, the elephant car wash is going to close that awesome sign. It's probably going to go live at Mohi, that big pink elephant giving itself a bath with its trunk. Is. It sad that we have to go to see this pink Elephant Museum, Canoe. Yeah, it will be if if if they can fit it in the door, right You know, I mean Mohi, has become the place that saves are signs. You know whether it's the rainier beer signed or the old tow truck or or whatever. You were probably due to have some sort of A. Part that part near Mohi turned into some kind of outdoor signed? My Gosh. It's going to be weary on czar neon park. It would be cool. You. Know I drive by Before the pandemic I was driving by the pink elephants signed almost. Almost every day and I use the car wash. It was really convenient working down near Seattle Center. But even it was so hard to get to I. Mean I think they're factors is on a weird piece of property with all the construction down there. It's hard to figure out how to get in there because it's one way Stinson things are blocked off. I think I, felt like I. Think I wrote a piece like several years ago. This pig elephant is doomed because of all development here. So. I've been sort of surprises lasted as long But I hate to see it go everybody loves that thing you you from Seattle? That's how you give people directions. You know you say you go down Denney Then when you get to that pink elephant sign, you turn less you know. Right and we need landmarks like that to help us get around especially since the cities looking so homogenized legally. Well. Yeah, you can't really say we'll drive down to that Amazon Tower. One of ten Amazon Towers looked identical and you'll think you're in bellevue but you know. Yeah. Doesn't work as well. Sean, what do you think? Well, I think it's it's a you know it's fitting. We were talking earlier about sort of the increasingly wayward direction of the Republican Party the GOP whose symbol is the elephant, and now we ask the actual physical displacement perhaps the best known elephant in. In the city of Seattle. So bad bad year for the Republicans we'll see how a number turns out if we can turn this thing around for elephants everywhere. Here.

"Actually worth more than that off and its distinguishing between what's true. And what's have true. That's the trick. So listen to this listen to this. Let me tell you some half-truth wage. That depression tells you you ready depression tells you that you're the only one going through your unique situation that no one else can relate because your personality is so different your situation is so different wage when in reality people might not be have the exact same situation as yours, but people can relate to feeling like they want to quit. Yes. It's a half proof. You do have a unique situation, but there is somebody that can relate, you know, another half-truth that the future is meaningless, right? Like, oh man. There's nothing that was me right. So my best days are behind me as an athlete. I. Know I was ranked number nine and three and now I'm going to be like average businessperson like my ego, right and and the future is just going to be meaningless and it's a lie, because right now it's just I can't see how meaningful the future will be and I have to recognize these half-truths and I thought were smart people and when we were recognized I'm being lied to em, Indices, I feel like we'll wake up and be like no way and I just want people to see beyond their pain beyond their current circumstances into the potential of the future wage is so powerful because the half-truths have guided literally the digital Hospitality thesis. It's guided these offline businesses to think is the only way you can build these businesses can ask yes, yes can't ask the question why we've always built are you name it restaurant You Name It We Barbershop way you name the business. This is how a law firm is built. This is how nobody can question why when we all know that it all has to change because it's all changed in the last twenty years how we talk to business. Literally. I went to Cloud beds with Adam and and Richard II Men that I admire deeply for the global company that their building they have properties off. Over the world number one Hospitality tech software and they have space office space literally there a new tech company that has a lot of office space in a headquarter, but they have to find out how to do it differently. Yep. It's much easier for the tech company to ask the why question because that's how they've been living. It's failed fast institutional businesses that have been built for them. All these decades all these hundreds of years. And how are we going to change but but then you then you start talking about the depression or the anxiety or the fear. What now? What yeah. What are we going to do just got my name is Bell for you man. This is my Victorian Belle because that I got towering. That's how you get the real. This is Real Deal Victorian Bellman and you go back because it's so true what you're just saying is so true man, and if we could just write but here's the thing many, you know this as you grow in business and in life, you have to pull up your ability to think it's like this is such a lame quote but it's one of my favorites. It's like the mind is a terrible thing to waste and I've heard I don't know who I would say this before I listen to so many people but they were like, you know, we're all created. Right and they're like, well the lion has its Roar and a giraffe has its hide and in the hippo has its you know off or whatever, but what did God give the the human as mine?.

The Troubling Issues Regarding Police Use of Force
"As for the police conduct that's did set off these wider protests. History has ben with us a long time. The repeated use of excessive force and killing. which begins incidents, but then worse becomes formerly legitimised in a US criminal justice system that allows and defends it. And we can report that to you tonight as a fact. Because the facts show vast majority of the allegations against police in these instances result in no firings. Let alone criminal charges in the few cases, the duly to a charge take fifteen per year over ten years. It's about ten per year of charges of manslaughter or higher and the convictions for those very rare charges I can tell you. are even more rare. There's a bowling green professor Philip Stinson. He tracks all on-duty incidents that resolving death with policing and he found over several years there were literally zero such convictions in the whole country. You widen out to a fifteen year period of time that he used in his studies. Five officers in deadly on-duty shootings were convicted of murder. The reason why that's all lopsided on the far right of your screen, and this is so vital to what's happening in. America right now is that four of those five were convictions from after 2016. So what little change we've seen came after the black lives matter movement, and after the spike in cellphone, video recordings and other way to say. Be Killing continues. It was rarely ever caught or punished, and the few handful of changes I just showed you. They have come at the margins when there is a combination of an extremely incriminating video and public pressure and often yes, people in the streets so well know law abiding citizen is going to support crime or violence. When we stop and listen to the history and listened to those who risked their lives for social change, while also advocating peaceful methods for change. Tonight as we look over everything that's happening. I want to tell you. It is worth listening. Dow, even they. Put Riots
Which of These Four Attachment Styles Is Yours?
"Have you seen the show how I met your mother? It's about a bunch of flawed but lovable New Yorkers trying to find or hang onto love as they go through life challenges which ranged from silly to momentous. It's a funny feel good. And sometimes poignant said calm but what I like most about it is that it's a perfect showcase of human attachment styles if you don't know what attachment styles are or have an ever seen the show. Don't worry once you hear about the characters and how they personify each attachment style you'll be sure to recognize yourself or people. You know Ba. I what is attachment attachment is the bond we form with our first primary caregiver usually apparent. It's a universal human phenomenon thus starts as early as in the womb. And THE WAY WE'VE DEVELOPED. It eventually affects the way that we find keep an end relationships therefore major attachment styles that people form early in life and generally tend to keep into adulthood. These styles are one secure too. Dismissive avoidance three anxious preoccupied and for fearful avoidance also known as disorganized to figure out what style of attachment you tend to have their quizzes. You can take they ask you to agree or disagree with statements like I easily develop emotional ties to others.

These items are probing the way we think of others and ourselves in the context of relationships and intimacy so wh- attachment style. Do you think you have well. Let's see if you most closely related to Ted Barney or someone else from how I met your mother in this first in a three part series on attachments. We'll let the beloved how I met your mother characters guide us through the four major attachment styles before I go on although how I met your mother came to an end in two thousand fourteen which I cannot believe is six years ago. It lives on digitally in case. You're in the middle of your first. How I met your mother marathon. I should warn you that this episode contains a few spoilers the show so let's walk through the four types of attachment and the characters that personified him so attachment style number securely attached and this is lily and Marshall Lily. And Marshall are the quintessential cute couple. They how quirky jokes. They have cute nicknames for Each Other which are lily pad and marshmallow. They finish each other's sentences but none of these cuteness overload explains why there's securely attached when a person has a secure attachment style. They feel confident in their relationship and their partner they feel connected trusting and comfortable with having independence and letting their partner have independence even as they openly express love. They reach out for support when they need it and offer support when their partner is distrust. And this is where Louis Marshall Really Excel. The relationship wasn't all puppies and rainbows for all nine seasons of how I met your mother. There were times when they broke up. Had family tragedies worried about building their own family and had awful fights house seemed to shake the very foundation of their future together but through it all. They fundamentally trusted. Each Other. Openly showed affection sometimes enough to make you gag. They told each other their thoughts and feelings even when it was difficult and they offer support when the other was sad and gave each other space when the other person needed it this type of attachment styles starts when early in life. A child feels that their parent is a secure base. So that even though they're happy to be with mom or dad they also feel confident enough to explore the world on their own. Kids grow up this way when their parents themselves are securely attached people and when they use an authoritative parenting style meaning they are involved and firm but also warm and allow independence given lily and Marshall's own security and they're loving style. I bet their kids will turn out to have very secure relationships of their own attachment style. Number two is dismissive avoidance. And here. We're going to talk about Barney Barney. Stinson may have been one of the most legendary Sitcom characters ever his whole life and career was a mystery and he certainly knew how to live life in the fast lane with his womanizing ways and through his romantic relationships we can see that he is the poster boy or at least on the surface. He is for the dismissive avoidance attachment style. People who have the dismissive avoid into attachment style tend to be very emotionally independent. Perhaps overly so they find it uncomfortable to get to mostly close to others or to fully trust them. In fact those around them may describe them as actively trying to avoid closeness. They seem to pride themselves on not needing emotional intimacy and when they're rejected or hurt. They tend to pull away. Although we see Barney with a lot of quote romantic relationships they tend to be mostly one ice stance. He even has a system for getting rid of women the morning after seducing them because he doesn't want to get to know them or spend any more time than necessary with them when we do get a glimpse of his vulnerability like the time. You finally get to know the father that he never knew growing up. He immediately leaves the room when he feels hurt. And then he tries to steal the men's basketball hoop which is not a very securely attached kind of way to solve problems. Barney's dismissive avoid an attachment style is quite understandable because the dismissive avoid an attachment style is associated with having had negligent or absent parents and generally having experienced rejection. Not only did Barney grow up without a father but his mother was also dismissive towards him even going as far as the casually light Barney that his father was Bob Barker from the prices rates and from flashbacks. We know that Barney was also rejected by his peers when he was a kid and his first serious girlfriend also brutally broke up with him but just because Barney ACCI. He doesn't need emotional closys most of the time. That doesn't mean he truly doesn't want intimacy and relationships. Research has shown that even people who are highly dismissive feel happier and better about themselves when they feel accepted or when they anticipate having good relationships with others and we do see the side of Barney shine through. He does end up cultivating forgiving attitude and relationship with his father and even shows his willingness to commit to romantic relationships by getting married. Even though that marriage ultimately ends we see him making efforts and potentially turning over a new vulnerable emotional leaf when his daughter is born. Now Talk About attachment style number. Three anxious preoccupied. And here we're GonNa talk about Ted. Have you met Ted? He's the lovable hero and narrator of the nine season how I met your mother. Saga there are many sweet and admiral will things about him but sometimes the way he handled. Romantic relationships was a bids cringe-worthy to say the least for example. He can't help. Say I love you within days of meeting someone? He made one girlfriend get rid of her dogs because they were inherited from previous boyfriends and he felt threatened by that for someone who has an interesting career in New York City and great friends. He seems to be totally consumed by his search for the one. He's always easily falling in love. Even an unhealthy situations not to mention that the entire nine seasons of the show built up to him major spoiler coming by the way asking his own kids for permission to date. A- LONG-TERM LOVE INTEREST. These are not just symptoms of being goofy awkward or a hopeless romantic. They actually pointed heads anxious preoccupied attachment style. People with the style tents crave emotional intimacy even when their partner is not yet ready or the situation doesn't call for it. They need a lot of approval responsiveness and reassurance from their partners. They can get anxious when they don't get it. It's not fun to have this Tasha's style. Often people like Ted field dependent on others for approval and doubt their own self worth. That's only reinforced. When the target of their clinginess never seems to be as interested.
Interview with Taylor Stevenson
"We're really happy to have all the way from Texas Taylor Stevenson joining us. Who actually flies with the with the Torah Act? So thank you for coming up in being with us today. Yeah absolutely the scared look is also what I have in the cockpit as well same holds true for all for all of US above average pilots. which is everybody coming in to landing? Cleef so Taylor before we sort of dive into what you do these days With Torah and all that all that cool stuff I I always love to go back to go back to the beginning and and find out how what was it about aviation how did you. How did you get involved? Do you remember the first thing you loved aviation where your model. I don't actually remember the first thing about aviation because it's just always been in the family So I was blessed to have grown up with my Dad Gordon Stevenson who I guess when I was born he used to scuba dive and ski and all that stuff and he's like yeah. I can't really do that with a little kid. What can I do? And so He'd always wanted to fly. My grandfather father was a flight engineer on B. Twenty four's in the Pacific with a three eightieth bomb group and so he had always grown up with my grandfather and my great uncle was a tail. Gunner and B twenty. Five's is always telling stories of aviation and so. He always wanted to do that. Well I guess I kind of kickstarted it So he was in nineteen thousand nine he was at the Addison. Texas airshow. You and there were two pieces For Sale so dad went up and you know what looks cooler not six sitting out there and it was kind of a fresh paint job Boban and he walks up and Calls one of his good friends at the time is basically my uncle Ray Kinney who had his pilot's license and said Hey ray let's by six and Ray is kind of what I was saying. Okay whatever whatever you call me when you need the money you know didn't never thought it was happened. We'll dad I bought the t six call ray up in two weeks later. Dad's signed up for flying lessons. So he kind of jumped headfirst into the thing Getting a pilot maker so So I did grow up just grew up in the backseat of T. Six six years old. I remember Freedom Flight Ninety five where we took one hundred and twenty aircraft from Long Beach California new to New York City I think we did six or seven and airshows along the way and so there's no greater childhood and ask for greater childhood than get into go and and and an experienced that and the neat thing is I'm excited to share it with my kids but it's it's got a a bittersweet day because I'm going to be one of the last generation that actually got to interact with the people that flew these in combat that built them Back in Korea World War Two and before so I'm I'm really blessed to have been able to grow up with aviation that's excellent so tell us a little bit about what your flight training. When did you start learning to fly? You've been around you. He's six which is fantastic. I'd like to fly by a t six. I broke it down both Cadillac that but really dad always joked that I was I could fly. IOF are when I was probably eight years old because I couldn't see over the canopy rail and he'd say oh I need to change maps. Hold the instrument. I'd sit there and look at you know artificial horizon and just kind of keep it going. We've got that exact same joke in my family. That was really. Yeah so so ray. Kenny also had a nineteen forty-six Piper j three cub with a sixty five horse engine in no electrical. Oh system about as good as it gets. And so when I was fifteen. He started doing kind of the formal Flight Training with me and a good family friend. Aubrey hair. Who flew flew? Basically everything that a stable for Cavanaugh flight museum and Blue Ticks and stuff. I was Aubrey's last student. We like to. He's he he kind of wears. He says he wears a badge of honor. I think I scared him so bad. He didn't want to know but now it was When I was fifteen Fly Piper cub out of our country. North Dallas and on my sixteenth birthday Solo. The cub then drove from the airport after getting student licensed to the DMV. To get my driver. So I always like to say I I could legally fly before I could drive So the cub was awesome to build. Time in there's nothing neater than going cross country driest eighteen wheelers or passing. ESPN everywhere you stop to fill up hand proper chocolate and and go so But after that we I'd always knew just grown up. WanNa get into warbirds and you can't just go you could but you know there's GonNa be a logical step between a cub and the t six and then beyond and so. I've always loved the Stinson. L Five and to me the l four was gonna you know there's some grasshopper aficionados. I was out there prior to say but the L. A. Piper cub with more glassy was is an existing design that was translated into military service. Same thing with the L.. Three same thing with the L.. To the twelve or or champ and the L. One and the l five were designed from from the ground up as a military machine. It was a ward Set up sixty five horse. We've got a hundred and ninety horsepower. Got flapping flaps drooping ailerons. It was cool so I remember being twelve years old and Eleven or twelve in. Sam Taber who's always up here at Oshkosh with his L.. Five walked right up to him about the best guy I on the planet walked. Start talking and sometimes you get some people aviation that When somebody young walks up up to him you know they don't necessarily discount him but it's kind of like okay? He's asking some questions. I would just boom in. Sam is one of those great individuals that He latched on told told me all the information ever wanted to know about the l five and just encourage he and Jim Gray Dunkin Cameron some of these others. That were in that group just really took me under their wing and so eventually found found project and began restoration. That was my my first foray into warbirds myself. All that's very cool. Yeah Sam's a good friend to a bunch bunch of the well to to the organization General He's our boss Jim. Bush publications is one of his best buddies. And Jim has an l five live. Oh that's very cool and Taylor you. I mean you're L five. Restoration is is gorgeous. I mean thank you. That was one of the first ones I know says that all the gas. Yes I do But no seriously you're aircraft is impressive. Yeah I appreciate it. It was we're lucky enough to find a really solid project from Duncan Cameron out. He was in Tennessee at that point. And so I went out there and And took a look at it and you know dad and and I we. I grew up working on cars and airplanes. A little bit with dad and Really we had been looking for an L. Five That was kind of plug and play a but it's kind of like anything for a parent. I don't have kids but I'm sure one day I'll realize it was like none of them. Were kind of up to his standards. One of the most safe. You know you WANNA make sure it was gone through and all that stuff and we finally determined and we started out with saying. We're not GONNA have project. Well that seemed to be the the only way we were going to get a product that we that we really liked at at that market at that point So I went over. I heard about this Guy Just kind of in between Dallas Fort Worth Name Lonnie Parcel Funny Awesome Guy One of my best friends so I flew the cup over there and he is restored shoot. Probably fifteen l five's over the year And started talking with him. And we ended up I said hey you know if I get this you know the two of us going to start working on it and You know basically be my mentor and in and and teach me how to do this and and so when I got the five and from that point I think it was about sixteen months. We had flying airplane so is it was It was pretty much. My twos two summers during high school. So seventeen eighteen nineteen and those two summers. That was my job. Drove drove forty minutes each way drive out to propwash. Were Little Airport flying community and worked with him and it was the most amazing and it was the best experience. It's because you know whether it's a l. five or cub or TC want or pilots. Or whatever the principles you learn rebuilding a cub They get more complicated. But you know carburetors carburetor internal combustion engine to all internal combustion engine so it was a great learning experience experience in being able to I guess quickly trouble. Shoot whatever something was going on because you've seen it you put it together so it was just an amazing experience. Yeah we come up in his Oshkosh two thousand nine and We're honored to receive the best Elbert so it was great

"Relics of the Arizona Republic Stinson fascinating archival and really historical research on the don bowls case and having had access to not only his files but also to some tape recordings and now I'll let you introduce a couple of these that you found that that really had kind of eerie overtones will this first one was the was one that I started playing with to my editors and said there's a story not only to be told here about what polls went through but this one showed of how much on his mind how much danger he thought he was and and in retrospect it is very a very chilling this is bulls talking to a Democratic Party official name Paul Rudd Amaker whose describing seeing dumbells outside the Republic building one day one day I drove by the newspaper you and your car parked across the street on that street and you're looking at your prior to look around your car in and we're looking at you know I have been in there sometime before that I know yours nine or something was going on and then when I got here you know why that would matter routine I if anybody has been filling with her and I know what I'm up against yes that was nineteen seventy attendees are telling us yeah I mean he wasn't guilty of seventy six so right for six years before the bombing he's telling us he looked under his car as a matter of routine of back then because he if he as he says I knew what I was up against his reporting about the mob he's reporting about these powerful entities he thinks someone may get him and that could be the way they get wow and the other now the other tape we pulled out here has he been here a year and he knows he taped a lot of conversations some of them were you know people that he was doing stories on and and but he just kept the tape rolling it seemed for random conversation sometimes with readers who would call in so and again just given the perspective as I was looking at the tapes I could as I was logging them I could see boy were hit seventy two seventy three nineteen seventy five you know I'm measuring how long this is like I have a soft this is like a movie where you already know the ending right and I started listening these tapes inside the middle of the movie having no idea what was going on and having to piece it together but here's bowls in of I believe this is also nineteen seventy talking to a guy whose businesses cemeteries and telling bowls he could get in his death wholesale if you wish Barbara Barbara berry with my brother we want to die I'll get it now I I don't care to right now I'm on the phone I think around around yes with the it's you know it's the kind of joke that's one might make in their normal life and not think secondly you know and not think a second time about but again given this character given how he was going to have his life and it is chilling to hear how he you know it these things are probably just rolled off his back take on new perspective now knowing how he met his device it's certainly were it not for the way he died it's an unremarkable conversation that we've probably all had at some point he just in jest yeah and it's it's one you know that little revelation that the from the first clip that he would check under his car his his widow didn't know that until later that he would check under his car and she admitted you know some of that made her angry he checked under his car every time thank you bye challenging task and hid that from her he had that from her and by nineteen seventy six he stopped being on guard he let his guard down he wasn't one time wasn't on that beat anymore he thought I've moved on yeah yeah but I found out I found a lot of new stories and yourself the play the Pat McMahon clip I have talked to Pat McMahon for dozens of hours you know we did I did a couple walls allegro book projects with him and he knew I worked the paper and we talked loosely about doubles through the years I had never heard his personal connection to dumbells into we interviewed for this project he and don bowls Wallace and Pat McMahon would right Wallace of the walls level show they would help dumbells right skits for the Arizona Press Club folly review apparently doubles with pitch them skits that were awful and Wallace of a man would fix them and make them better so the man knew it let's let's play the Pat McMahon crap I think you'll recognize the voice here in may nineteen seventy six just weeks before bowls is death there was a roast of the noted humor columnist erma Bombeck she was a nationally known appeared on Good Morning America best selling author and she lived in paradise valley there was a Republic reporter don bowls was at the roast so is Pat McMahon who was a well known radio and TV personality I went up to bowls and made one of those cracks one might make it a function like this I said done I'm really glad that you came over there I could talk to for just a moment to try my best to pound some kind of sense into that head of yours because you keep picking on all of these lovely business people why is it you pick on these folks you know in in search of just simply writing nice things about some of the nicest people you could say sweet things about he's a hand she stayed with me to this day he looked at me the last time funny you should mention because this is my last story about those people I promised my wife that I was gonna wrap that part of my career and I said something like no offense down but what else can you do and I didn't leave to make it sound as if you were limited and I don't

We'll get our heads together here in the next few days and figure out what's next but I think he's I think I use a horse with you know with a lot of talent I mean he has he has he's got tactical speed which you know is as I guess you can't take the southwest southwest out of me I I you know I just love speed you. McGreevy speed kills. We've got you gotTa have it. It's H. A. Anguish wet but if you've got it and so you know what to say what the next few weeks you know show but hopefully hopefully things will will well what what's also got to be brought out being by Jimmy creed and out of the tap it mayor and the fact that the perform the way he did around two turns and now cutting back he's wanted at both the seven and at a six furlongs the livers a one eleven buyer on Saturday which is the second second fastest of of of the year and there's a lot to you know there's a lot to like going forward in terms of versatility with that Pedigree Ed agree and what he's already shown who knows what what what you could do with him and you know and he was only one hundred thousand dollars and it's funny among the three year olds Michael that that are being campaigned. He was one of the one of the smaller price tags this group right well he was he was of are using the second second least expansion but but I will tell you he I think he was what hit number twenty five thirty two or or something like that and and but but Tom Love is horse admittedly so I mean he he he just said you know I'd already come back appealing and he said you know this this is this is what we need this. We gotta have this hour since I was he he he was convinced of that and and so he but I think you're right. I think you know I think he's a horse potentially got some. You know some I I. I don't think he's I don't think he's I don't know what the district's restriction will be but we'll find out about that but I you know he he he certainly didn't have a problem with two terms and and so we saw that he can't sprint so you know we'll keep our fingers crossed. Since he was asked interestingly too he was the first fall out of of the mayor light shine the mayor and so there wasn't any track record and you know some bloodstock agents won't buy a I fall they wanna see you know especially when dealing dealing with with a new client and you would think right somebody with somebody. You've got to have a lot of confidence right now. Tom Thomas a very modest guy but uh-huh that he is not short on confidence and just to pick a horse. Yeah I mean you got a young Sarah reversed here at first year unripe mayor you know so but that he would not be the first to get fit in in the category of of you know original coming from you know young saw a mayor so time really pedigree far less than the then the and the produce to the mayor then than it is the individual he's he's he's a compromise and and the porch and so we we we bought well and the results are out there on the racetrack into the mayor's credit I I I don't want to shortchange light shied because she is assist well scrappy for those of you that Remember Fleet Alex she this is scrappy tease little sister and also tar heel mom the wonderful tar heel mom yeah no.

There's a lot of entertainment competition out there now so we just can ill afford in my things and unnecessary distractions and in in in in unnecessary part of that that don't make be duck. Don't need to be dealt with I mean and so I think I think we've got you know we had your house in order and so but it does it affects. I'll be the first to say it it. It affected my about you know about the you know what I'm saying he three years old and so you know I want to be smart about what what I'm doing and there are there are parts of what are going on out in California that don't make meekly real smart so that's that's part part of the overall whereas you know and that's a message that industry leaders both nationally nationally and regionally should take the art simply put right well Michael the the the good news is you got yourself one of the kinds of horses that you stepped up to the plate to to acquire and it was a delight to be there and and see the satisfaction for you and Linda and for Tom and everybody so King Jack Goes forward whose King Jack named four by the way when he's he's name to one of my best franchise whose name is Jack in the name of his businesses kings and so and he's also named many many years ago another good friend of Mine Grandfather's name was Jack in and he was probably the person that was responsible for me the racial or so he'll cheryl million dollars. I'm pretty convinced of it but but my good friend Jack you're won't work. It's well. I'm GONNA guess that Linda named Vermeer did yeah. Well see this is dangerous ager. I'm going to warn you right now. The Tina wants to know why I don't let her name any horses and the answer is because if if because if they don't pan out and you gotta drop down and and dangling end lose them to claim you're going to it's a danger in the household Mike I I ran a Iran a quality about Philly that was claimed about six months ago. That's my youngest Ali McGee so kit rarely pans out when they're named after the people that are close to you that are back is the exception so let's just go go go with go with the you know with some inanimate objects and putting together putting together sires and dams and yeah you you gotta be real careful what you wasteful.

"Bringing down the biggest stores and this is the reasons same serious and there is a cyst Lewinsky lovers twitter's buyers milk busy bodies around. We're back at the races a little less than fifteen to the top of the hour at the races at the show started this morning after the first break with a visit from Joe Bar Mar and we talked about barriers pride and even even before we we got to joy. I wanted this week to have Michael Stinson join us on the occasion of Saturday's great steak win in the Gallant Bob by King Jack and it was a great moment I and at the time when I was with the stent sins and Tom McGreevy and Jerry door everybody post race I was not aware that pepper had had been euthanized the day before and so as Michael Stinson joins US Michael I what a swing of emotion from Friday afternoon to Saturday good morning and I'm sorry congratulations well thankfully it was a it was sweet uh-huh she did was you know it was a it was difficult. WHO's I'm sure when you visit with Jones. He told you he was a difficult part is difficult decision sation for for Joel particularly Joe Allen to make he you know he he bred and raised and campaign peppers pride and so you know she she was family to him and she was she was really special to everyone that had bothered her and so it was it was just a real oh difficult decision but you as you know you you reach a point where you have to you have to make the decision that you feel best group for the horse and so we we got that last week or two and then you're you're Philadelphia for King. Jack's try in the Gallon Bob at twenty. Four hours was later. I it's it's the high of the highs it. It's really game if that isn't a snapshot of what this is like being involved in this this board I. I don't know what is well it it it it. Is You know anyone's been around but the the sport knows that it's you know there. There are a lot more lows lows unfortunately than there are has. I guess if you win twenty percent of the rices here you're lucky and so but you know it was it was literally the the highest dependents lowest last week and and but it unfortunately goes it goes he goes with the game and it's it's a cowboy microcosm of life frankly very true and it's it's one of the things about the I think the sport that is hard for outsiders to understand and then when people get involved no matter how anybody no matter how successful they are we talk about this a lot in the matter how somebody made the made their living or or you no matter how successful they are at whatever they do it doesn't guarantee not coming into this game and doing well either and some people get very frustrated at that well. It's it's you know one of the one of the terrific things I think about the sport and it goes back. It goes back many many years. I think it's one the great melting pots in the world I mean you you see such diversity of terrific people. You know I'm a big. I'm a big Fan of the of the folks on the backside of the race track. I think the I think the focus of carefully more she's on a day to day basis. They live with them. It's their live. It's seven days a wait three hundred sixty five days a year and and so it's I think human interest aspect of the work is something that really we could do a better job of communicating to the non racing public about you know what's involved with what these people commit their lives to these horses and and these horses become family. That's like ever cried. You know about an interest in it or two thousand nine after she after I I watched her which I'm a I'm a Texas New Mexico guy so I had watched her campaign and she was just she was just a thing but you know I i. I don't care where you are when you win nineteen nineteen out of nineteen writers and I I I don't care if it's a match race it you know in in Boise Idaho I mean that that that's getting something done and she was just she was so phenomenal that that career Jilin had actually partnered in Morse's prior to my buying an interest in her and I just felt it was always just a great privilege each to to to be associated with her and in she she had a she had such a presence better. My my wife is is a sculptor and she sculpted rep-reprising long after week. After week nature's dinner and she made the comment when she was in in Kentucky she's been about two days measuring and photographing or and she was so smart she would she would allow Linda to get calipers. EPA around or is yes. She would never never move she was just a very very special horse and and so it was a it was the last week well and my eight my chance to get to know lead. There was at the unveiling of the beautiful bronze she did of Julie Krone and when I asked just about the origins of the interest and you know knowing that you were involved with pepper and and then you know the fact that the ill Linda talked about the sculpture of pepper and I've been really Kinda rooting along with you subsequently subsequently and and there's actually you know a few tangible elements to this one. Is You getting involved with the McGreevy and and and having Tom come in and more or less bike to put the spurs I think to your to your program and talk about the evolution of your interest in the game and you know what feels like the cusp of of a lot of success well you know we've been as I mentioned to you we we have here we go towards is forty five years or so and properly run in in the south west and and so it's been you know I grew up around in the southwest and and and and so we've we've run horses for you know for a number of years and of course I think I mentioned to you I had to like so many by gravies career over the years and and you know he he he was just truly. He's truly a special guy. He's first of all he's a wonderful human being but but he also in my opinion is a savant like talent as far as he knows he is on a horse and his his sense about what Mike so good horse so any right you know when when when Tom became available I we had met him actually not not family and I admitted or even review sheer which three years ago I guess now so so we we've made and had changed visit and so under the for me that if I was ever going to have an opportunity to participate at a candidate the the next you know at the higher level the the only way we don't we could do was with someone like Tom to dislike the horses. I mean you know as the great mattress Max it. I couldn't yeah that was you know so it it. It's pretty important to know what you can do what you can do and I'm I got a lot of damage and I'm pretty aware of them so Tom. Tom And I visited and and really came together. on a deal pretty quickly and and so you know we we we we've not had a lot of success. We've had as you do in this business something you have you have setbacks and delays and so forth but but he he's just a very special Cabrera lucky to be partnering with him and and we'll see you know we're going to go from here. Well the the first grade at stake domino to the fall came on Saturday with with King Jack and there's a few other horses we'll talk about but this is the one that you know the gets. The first I you know the first race with with a number attached to it and there's obviously a lot of upside with with King Jack yet and it's clear that Jerry Allen Door for Jerry really felt confident about him enough to put him at one point on a probable list for the Allen Jerkins ended up staying home and Adele Mar and running in the shared belief but it seemed pretty pretty evident Mike that that this was awards that that Jerry and Dan felt had had real talent. I mean because to consider him for his third career. you start to run into grade one that that's not something that that Jerry would do lightly horses the two year old really really show a a lot of precocious talent in and so they were pretty excited added about him as a two year old and he had a little set back and so we had to give him time and in but when he came back he he really was always pretty forward a- and and they were they were pretty excited about him. I think all along so we did seriously consider going to Europeans and in the final decision Jerry foul mouth which it was probably smart start out as you say to stay home and get that one under his belt and an unfortunate thing again of a rough kind of a rough trip in that race but but still finished you know less than three links behind the horse. It was the derby in in breaking his favorite favorites. Oh that's not anything to be to the shame of and so the the the rice in Pennsylvania was something that we we kind of thought would made a lot of sense to Kenny back and you know and see what kind of a number in mind but and in and how he would compete in we were food disciple at least we were really thrilled with how that went really exciting out he he's interesting from a few standpoint points because the to turn the turn race at Del Mar and and the fact that you would cut back to seven and in this case Sir six kind of kind of shows that there's a lot of there's a lot that can be done with him and that the upside I know after the race that the Bala Boo was was talked about as as the end of the year goal but this is clearly horse they can go to turns. I mean there's there's there's a lot going on here. First of all talk about you know just the pleasure of of you Linda and Tom and Jerry to it it. It's important an important win but just talk about watching the race and being able to enjoy it. We'll just you know the Horse Guy. He just doesn't get much better than that. I mean personal parks just puts on such a you know. They did such a wonderful job that day was it's terrific day. Racing I mean those dollar rices you know move the fields that they assembled for the entire day so parkway terrific job and they were so hospitable and nice to us and and then you know to you know to be lucky enough to have a horse that was able to run a race like this so we we just it. was you know for us. We've been we've been in it a long time at a different level and so it was it was just it was thrilling. It was just it's just it's as good as it gets. That's just an old. It's been around a long time. It was it was quite it was quite a thrill you know I I went to went to jerry a ticket gradulate him and I said what you know this is this is good. You know really I'm great for you and he said he said I am not important. He said what what this is terrific for is is for Michael who deserves much success excess as as can be you know as can be delivered and says says a lot about about Jerry and I wanna ask you because because I reached for McGreevy immediately after the you know the really reprehensible treatment that Jerry rich received at the hands ends of the stronach group and Tom came on literally the next morning and and said the kinds of things that you know at most people would say about Jerry from your side of things Michael Standing by Jerry Holler for some thoughts. We're we're you know politics apologies career at like Toms career to being associated with him and I make everything that I ever heard of that. Kerry was that that that no one worked harder than one was more honorable you you might not like everything the what he delivers every message but it's going to be the truth he he's a he's. A jury of as you know is very unusual guy. He's just terrific. He's a terrific human being and a world class horseman. I've had over the years and partnerships in different Tao's I've had horses with probably twenty different trainers including two or three hall of famers also and and and I can just tell you that the in my opinion Jerry is is he's he. He's what this is all about. I mean I get text messages from him at three thirty or four o'clock in the morning. Here's Tom telling me that he's not going to take a horse to the right track because they job off a bit now. I'M NOT GONNA run a horse. I'm not gonNA take him to the racetrack. so he's just jerry is a world class. Guy world-class horsemen that the industry needs more Jerry Holland Workers the the situation California you know I just hope that that that can all get resolved because because California leads they need Jerry Holland door type people to to promote the sport you know I made the comment before that and I believe this I mean I'm a small owner. I mean I'm not A- We're not big players but but if there's not a place for a guy like Jerry Hall in northern in California racing then there's not for me and I say that only because that that is the the things that have transpired out there and and I don't WanNa be political about it but I mean it's just it just it it sort of doesn't pass the field good test and and so hopefully they'll get it resolved. I would like to wear the number hopes that training with Jerry up there we'd not moved to single works for Jerry. We stayed with him. Peru route through the entire situation intend to continue will continue to do that but but it it's time for that to get resolved and hopefully I believe that that.

I wonder how to Johnny and Guys Jockey Club. Actually handle can and cocktail parties when they go and people are talking about your really involved in a nasty industry aren't you well. Basically that's perception. Exception is not going to draw in people to the game like it wants Dick's Ya and so how you're going to change that paradigm. I don't know how you GonNa Change. It could be to get more people as owners and breeders. I really don't now now. This paradigm exists outside the United States Komo more but even there it's changing too. You're doing it yeah. I I I don't that that's all the whole separate we we can have that conversation. I I mean the the reality. The reality is the people that the people that were the bullwork of the industry. They came from dirty from from plenty of dirty industries themselves. I it's it's not as if you wight what what was going on in those cocktail parties I don't I just I'm talk about even at the lower level. It's I know cake that element out. She's not interested in the worst and in that I see as I I just I monitor the lower levels very closely as well. I don't see that more people got wipe out any after two thousand seven at the half more white than people realize and you know those people have and then have a history with the horse that it became economically not feasible and I think that economic feasibility isn't it is a major part of it. Well Yeah Now I. I've said this many times we we've heard from I'll invoke Charlotte as an example I mean when when people like like a Charlotte Weber or a Steph Clark when they explained when when the topic if it comes up that you know you can't just you can't just open a vein and lose the loose six billion dollars eight million dollars a year and just let it spill bill on the floor when when the occasion arises to have I I see you know the the ridiculous carrying bring on from people oh this will. How could they send his horse to start? Yes they send it to start because it they have to take money off the table. They can't just AH light money on fire. You have to get every so often you need something to come back to justify what you're spending spending and the fact that you know the fact that the cacophony about a stallions going to going to start I I. I don't understand that yeah. The goal is to try to cash out by getting prospects and you know you don't have that at the end of the you know Your Business Plan. I mean it's it's not very feasible. Trek onomic once in a while you know here when you get one you after you have to take advantage well said there's so much more but we're gonNA talk. speaking of people that are involved at both ends of the Game Michael Stinson is going to join us and earlier this morning we talked to Joe Maher who who trained and developed peppers pride a Michael had bought into her as a as a broodmare and he had a fascinating example of what it's like the FBI in the business considering that on Friday afternoon he gets word from Taylor made that the pepper had to put down because a laminate is and then twenty four four hours later he's standing there Philadelphia when can't Jack earns him as his first grade at stake win so there there's there's there's the game in a nutshell. That's a really good That's a really good. retelling of the vagaries of the sport Lord isn't it because it yeah and his wife who I met last year the Breeders Cup went to really super talented sculptor did that Joe Chrome Yellow Pea has wrought peppers pride a really nice people. It's it's it's great to see them getting Dan very modest and modest in their outlook in you know it's it's nice to see people like that had some success. They've got a number of other really nice sources. in the pipeline and of course Tom McGreevy doing the the selection for the stent sense and it was really really nice to to be there to see them when they're first stake..

Good you gotta you gotta you gotTa wear the Kevlar said on a daily basis you need Kevlar Lar- you need as best as as best as the overcoats and everything else it is. I'll tell you yeah you got to you. Got A better be ready to do battle on a daily basis. We have a lot of fun being questioned daily well aw baby. Maybe one thing that should serve as a reminder. Was You know three hundred three hundred fifty million dollars worth of of commerce that that's usually something in this country that that you know carry some weight with it. Obviously you have had the sales are prospering. I think what was it three hundred sixty four fifty four or something like got a little a little below last four and a half percent less than last year by remember the figure Judy and but Tricky Guy L. The three hundred and sixty billion and there there were certain there's certain things about it that I'd love your urinalysis I I I read the the pieces by Chris. McGrath has been really churning out post sale analysis and from a couple different perspectives. Both you know the genetic issues and questions as well as the commerce and it it. There's no doubt that we didn't need this sale to confirm the top end you know the the question is is is there is there as much vitality beyond beyond the you the top layers and you know one thing that is of concern. Is You get the sense that the rich are consistently getting richer and what's your reaction to that. I think I has been to John. I issues by exit. Opposing whoa Said said let me said let me jump in your your phone is giving US trouble here. You're our air me now. Better Yeah yeah you've gone in and out several times already if there's a a better spot or or I don't know trying to get around now. You're good. You're good right now but it just that then you know as soon as it stabilizes that it was sort of distorts fades for a second and says well let me try and speak again. You're good there from here. The Jesus Yeah Yeah I gotcha not sure it's location or connection because you see see how you go get shot. Let me give this a shot. If not I'll try you know all right. I think Creek juxtapose did pretty well with the eight point two million horse versus the last course at so for one thousand three hundred dollars. you know look the the first book was so great and it carried into the second book and the Third Book but you know the reality is that when you get to the last couple of books especially the last two sessions you're always we can get a big drop off in price session and those sessions at the lower end of the book. Do you do paint story of how difficult difficult it is to read horses in general if they don't take all the most horses don't so I think to answer your question. I'm part of the business. is not really as healthy as one would like an matic of racing jet on your show over the years tracks act longer detract and it's really getting to the point where the game is really all about what happens if the bigger tracks and likewise the bloodstock is is it's centered around your most expensive forces. He's which tend to be. You're a that formed back pedigree origins the the the note that McGrath also made about how the Saratoga how the the Phasing Music the preliminary phases sales the July sale and the to Saratoga sales have been a really accurate bellwether for for what to expect at Keeneland as well and more than just a more than just the there's lots of activity and there's lots of high end it it it actually reflected even even like the the reduction in median median was down ten percent and that that was even reflected in the three phases sales as well. I suppose though at the same time said when you know when we then get down the road and we talk about as we do very often some of the horses that were purchased for you know modest sums for fifth. Let's say from fifty to one hundred and fifty or even less than the twenty five to one hundred and yeah those those become the you get steak winters. I haven't ever seen necessarily a a sale chart that the distills brackets of expense versus the number of steak winters but that would be that would be interesting. I mean how many you know how many steak winter's come out of one hundred thousand dollar yearlings come from one hundred to two fifty to fifty to five five to seven fifty seven fifty and up and hope springs eternal and there's there's plenty of evidence. I mean look at look at what happened in Pennsylvania the another horse out of that sixteen aiden claimer I mean you can't make it up. Yeah and you know when you're talking about price. It doesn't preclude those cheaper workings is born out from becoming the winners and to use your point about Pennsylvania the to grade one winners. There's were essentially sired by forcing standing for five thousand dollars Algorithms five thousand Claburn is this is a map wizard and Larry Joan was hired by his son who's actually in Saudi Arabia right now and it was at Airdrie Stud and he was standing for like five thousand at the end at the end before he left so by the way across the pond the G. Tube Mill Reef stakes also this weekend one horse called Pierre your lap yeah and his sire stands for four thousand Euros so you know it's again the price is not relative in my opinion and and you know you said there're there're so many exception to it's it's not really a linear it may be but it's not it's cuts uniformly indicative of quality and and and you know we're anecdotal be giving you two three examples just this weekend but there are a lot of examples like that so it does give everybody hope and I think you know Chris wrote that Article you know I can't pointed out that well that's what they thought for but let's see what happens when you put a saddle on him and what happens to the eight point two million orange versus the one that went three hundred dollars kind of a a losing to you really never can tell until you give them to the track because it's not always detract is not a bad. It's not a beauty pageant. It's not the best looking always winning so many horses that game in per been courses that have had patience here there. you know you take like for go who is who was a home-bred relief ranch but he raised to he had all sorts of congenital luke defects and he was a huge horse and he ran through a lot of problems on the other end of the spectrum. Take the Horse Gelding Lake John Henry very small who are who obscure pedigree Oh Bob Dollars and you know he eventually got ta on the turf and became one of the great and again unforeseen but that's what happened. That's what scams about pets. It's the rail horse that's that physical stand back like a justify who who runs to it and even in justifies case the he had a veterinary issue that made a lot of people pass on him. Even though the eventual state five thousand he may brought more believe it or not it's not for veterinary issue now that that part of it is what makes it is what makes it so fascinating add it. AH mysterious is the genetic equation and the mental makeup and you you know who's who's handling the horse from you know the time they you know they leave sales rings and and whether it's mental defect of Yup exactly and that that's been a very the very first topic actually for for you guys at at cdn and then in fact you wrote that column the other day about awed balls and it it really fits some of the things that we talk about and that I love noting in pedigrees when you find when you find somebody that is is obscure and provides that that has historically provided some sort of a of a boost to pedigrees and and Kris wrote about it as well and then I'd love that rob widely sat down the last day or two and responded and robs got a great letter to the editor reinforcing what what you and Chris wrote about this week. Don't the only point that I took issue with his bladder is where he talks about you know preoccupation we talked about sire lines and whatnot I've been got into the issue of Nick and said well you know Knicks should also incorporate uh females and whatnot now historically term knicks is always been about a aspire line cross. which is you know? Sire was the Broodmare Sire. It's an indication of if those crops work it's been in us from leaders from the beginning time you know the famous one at started at quite it's national and something bold ruler with Prince Colo Prince Quello marriage cor prince quarrel line marriage secretary for Gamble for example of that bold ruler out of something royal by Prince Quello the Great European Horse Mill Reef. US by Paul Mellon is an example example that he was by never been natural out of Milano by Prince Quello you have those types of pedigrees and then people people can copy those things so when you get Seattle slew it won't ruler lying horse the mayor by poker whose center roundtable able to send a prince guerrilla so what is it's not a big deal for us to people copy tied in his article in Rob's Common Carrie about mayors and the fact that they're not one complaint people don't talk about marriage and America much less fold if robbers pity keeping Knicks by saying that there is such a small population to base Saddam well imagine if you use Mares stallions beat so many more I get so much more progeny than mares..
Positioning a New Tailwind CSS Product
"I am joined by my friend inlands and how's it going in. Are you doing good so the reason I have you on the show today. you know you've been on the show before Kinda Hannah. I'd like to bring you on the show anytime I wanna get like I think of you as kind of like my software. Business uncle gets talking once in a while. The has all this wisdom awesome awesome. Chavis have diamond. I'm trying to figure something out and just get some get some perspective for someone who's been the game for awhile crazies offer uncle so yes so kind of what I wanted to chat with you. Today is me and Steve Showgirl who worked on at factoring. Ui with are working on this new product that we're still trying to figure out exactly exactly what it's going to be but like there's some things that were just struggling to to feel like we've made a confident decision on. I thought it'd be cool to get your input on that. So what we're trying to make is obviously. Steve Work on talents the SS furred punches reasons and people use it and it's cool or whatever but because it's like a utility framework the sort of a hole where a lot of people who try to use it Kinda get stuck because they just don't even though that like the workflow. They just don't know like what to do with it. I mean it's like this draft okay. I I WANNA make a list group. I WANNA make enough bar. It's like all right there but yea with tell when you're sorta like left your own devices so what we thought would be kind of an interesting way to try and like make the whole thing sustainable so we can actually you build a business around this tool while keeping it open source and continuing to build free stuff and everything is to kind of enter the sort of like you. I kid or themes uh-huh space kind of like bootstrap has their official theme store. We're trying to figure out like what does it look like to make a product like that for Tell when users search for aspiring toe and users even and even not positioning is kind of hard to figure out so kind of explain where we're we're thinking kind of a going and then I'm curious to get your take on idea in general and then also. I have some specific stuff that I think would be interesting to get into. Let's do so we're thinking is basically kind of like A. I guess like a Web portal. You know if you WANNA use nineteen ninety any seven lingo some sort of like logging area where like Steve of just built out tons and tons of different components and they're kind of right now. We're thinking kind of bigger components then. Maybe you might see with like traditional. CSS Framework the stuff. That's a little the more complex entire pricing section of a landing page or something with like three cards and sort of some interesting layout with like the featureless and and all that stuff and the idea would be that all the stuff would just be delivered straight up. HTML since talent is all utility classes. It's kind of Nice that you can actually just like save tears. HTML of the classes are embedded right into it. You can just copy and paste. It and you have something to start from. so we're thinking yeah. It's like some logging area. People can kinda browse all these different categories of stuff copy and paste into their projects and from a design perspective. Originally we are trying to figure out like should should it be should we try and make it like intentionally very varied and like terms how it looks like some things are like superfly. Ui with crazy colors and some things are maybe like more traditional or something's more enterprise or whatever I think we're thinking kind of make things a little bit more like consistency Stinson a little bit easier to sort of pick and choose different things knowing that like they're gonna fit together like fairly nicely but ends up making the whole thing kind of feel like kind of like one theme but not really at the same time because you still have a lot of choice and like you know okay well. I want a four card pricing greater. I WANNA PRICING TAE. They were want like a pricing thing with a variable pricing slider or like enter a bunch of inputs and you know what I mean. So there's all sorts of different ways. You could do it and the nice thing. We're hoping anyways utility approaches that since you just copying each imo he should feel pretty safe just like changing what you want to change right like oh it kind of want like to add like a second button here. We'll just copy paste the button that's already there. I WANNA use a little bit less padding here. Just change a p six to a p four. You know to go whereas I feel like if you if you look at a lot of the other tools on the market for this sort of thing you get this giant zip file. That's like the mystery box. You don't even know it's going to be in and they're gonNA come with like. Is it like a bunch of SAS files. Is it stylus files. Is it just pods the assess do they have like their own gulp scripts. It's all like just just like is asked to rate so I'm kind of hoping that like one of the value propositions here is like you sort of know what you're getting because like it's tell when stuff it's just. HTML it's all using the default tailwind classes not like anything fancier accustomed so it's very transparent and you get what you get and you kind of know what to expect so. I guess just like even based on that description like how does that a hate you well. I mean it's it's sort of interesting because it's different a little bit different than what we talked about this when you were. I thought of it so I guess there's the two sides us right. What you've described is like website template. You're building a website and it's GonNa pricing page has got like a tour tour and whatever you need lay out and whatever design and well I kinda visit as was more apt components so that's going to be there too but give me your like what is Ian. landsman is like definition of an APP component again so that's just like the you know apt APP. Dot. You know help spot dot Colorado. You know you're like the actual like you I for a B. Two B. APP. Let's say or consumer APP at the APP itself lists and table views and form control walls all that stuff so to me those are pretty different things kind of I understand them being together also in tailwind type scenario but I do think they're pretty different like I think the APP controls all seem like super clear and clean to me and like a lot of people have that need developers are like I don't WanNa build any of this stuff. It's it's terrible to build at all or you're trying to take some boots jobs saying but the really basic thing bootstrapped gives you doesn't like give you really what you need and so you need to like mess with all that and from your end it's cleaner just seems like a light version and dark version. Maybe a little build builder. You is that lets you like mess with colors or something and like it's a different variations or whatever but the front of the website doc it's all crazy over there people are going to be like we need like two hundred themes to choose from because. I don't want to have the same theme as some other people and beloit get a a lot stuff and people wanna big hero and a small hero and no hero and long form in this you know there's like all the different million variations and you have some designers involved or they're gonNa uh we want it to look like this look. Can we make this thing you got from them. Do this thing like don't like to kind of pretty different things. Some of the controls could cut across both ways and things things but I was the first thing that just kind of struck me as if you're sure you want to be in that side like the theme forest and the world like do you want to compete with theme forest in General Yeah Yeah yes. That one's kind of yeah. It's interesting that you think of it as being separate. I guess I don't think of it as being a separate as you do but maybe that's just because like I've actually been trying to hack stuff together and economy feels like more unified but I can see why you'd get that thought but yeah even with like like the marketing stuff I think the goal is to make things as sort of interchangeable as possible right so like imagine you're trying to build billick marketing say maybe we have fifteen different heroes to choose from but the idea is like all those heroes are all going to look good with all these feature section all these feature sections the again now to do that. We kind of have to make like some of course like baseline designed decisions right like do we are flat or do we go like with some shadows hazard to go square. Do we go rounded. You know the the sorts of like asked that decisions that you have to sort of carry through the whole thing for to not look like some like disaster asked here but what I was hoping and I don't know if this is going to be true and it'll be I'm curious to know it your perspective as like my hope visit people are going to feel comfortable taking a hero the has rounded buns and being comfortable getting rid of the round corners just like deleting that utility goal. We kind of want not to be square. Whatever but I also know that people are necessarily going to have the imagination necessary to even think to do that some of the time yeah well. I think that's what it was like. The semen woman in the market is so different when you're building the APP. It's like you know you have to construct all of this stuff like you're literally building everything when you're building up part of Saas Upright and and the the like marketing site part is like more variation in it because there are definitely people who just install wordpress and they wanNA download some. I'm crazy theme forest thing that's got five thousand files and seven Java script systems and just like this giant monstrosity with customers but let you do all kinds of stuff so the whole thing but obviously by the flip side. You're not in some ways. You're not really targeting not market very much at all because you're still going to be doing the people who are building the whole thing. I'm from scratch that way. It's kind of you know. I think you're pure target right. He's going to be the like somebody building. They're building the marking working page. They're building the APP belt holding a lot of times now. They're one APP these days. Some you know now usually but not you know more like a bigger business building. It would usually won't build it that way. he's like a different. CMS Say Austin differing in group that does it and it's totally unrelated to the APP stuff but that's a big concern for you necessarily and what you're doing. You know your audience really yeah yeah. I think that any sense I think like in our heads trying to figure out like is what we're providing a bunch of different like sorta like themes where like you can kind of make choices says that ended up with like totally different looking sites or do we want to pitch it more like this is like the first kind of theme you know what I mean and maybe it's an only ends up being like one you know of course we're just. GonNa Start with one and see what happens but thinking of it more like okay. Steve designed all this stuff. He designed it all consistent and so it's like sugar at scale you could buy about also like with a focus on hopefully hopefully trying to make it so that people feel comfortable making little tweaks here and there to like you know put their own spin on it like for example one of the decisions that we've made up to at this point which may or may not be a good decision. We've been designing everything using just like basically like black as sort of like the primary color so whereas something something like bootstrap like primary buns are blue links are blue and you know everything looks like a blue site where dislike associates like a dark gray. That's like really neutral but still like totally polished and let people like change that to green if they have green brand color changes to blue Febblue Branko or whatever so hopefully the people stuff still turn out different just because they're just GonNa you know in Jack their own little flavor things but again. I don't know for sure like if people are going to want to do that like it's hard to know like how off the shelf do people want things to be versus how much to they just want
Strange 4th of July traditions
