"Forward. in an artist mention is. We from the beginning we'd always believed in the cloud. In although we have a large server farms on campus as you can imagine, we've really refined, are designed tools to be scalable and run in parallel. and in the last couple of years we've increased our ABC resources high-performance cluster resources mostly cloudy by by twenty five times. And so it's really the combination of that really brilliant creative engineers, both on the tool side, and on the design and optimization side. but also massive amount of data that were running and that's the. Providing us, I think with But I believe will be a long-term competitive advantage. All right, thank you, and then, of course you did mention Mount Cutoff there is a. Full Boom Louis crews How does that work in practice? Do you think? What are the key challenges that you're looking at? Well you know I mean in the United States? We still have a amok bands. You cannot fly above one in the United States and and other. The regulations are slightly different in Europe and practices the same. So, we designed the airplane to fly at very high subsonic speeds, land and supersonic over the water, but one of the technologies that will be inherent inside the as to upon delivery is boomer screws. And, we've been working with the FAA to show the algorithms. How booms crews works and it takes advantage of the the big breakthrough. Here is that we've been able to engineer. an atmospheric phenomenology that's been known for fifty years of called Cutoff. And what happens as long as you can understand a several atmospheric conditions wins temperature gradient in wage. Got You really understand but vertical and horizontal win components? Temperature gradients throughout the atmosphere column column, and even humidity, and if you get a high fidelity model to understand what that is, you can adjust the speed of the airplane to stay within luck cutoff. In practically what happens is the boom still gets created, but it reflects off of the atmosphere layer called the cosmic layer into goes back up into the atmosphere. You have to maintain the speed. Now down to about one point two, and so the key working with the FAA's to demonstrate. I of the series of lab tests of surrogate flight test in an alternate into the flight test program that we can fly reliably at boom Lewis crew in boom was crews and show that the boom that we can manage the speed of the airplane, so that bill never strikes and doing that. The way the airplane works. the pilots we'll. PUT The aircraft into the boomers cruise mode as part of autopilot. Allow the airplane just to fly within the cutoff region. Okay so you would be an automated approaches fantastic. To to as an approach to. The procedures and and I know we could spend another just talking about that itself, but I suppose I'm aware of the time and wanted to prompts finish. If I could tell asking you obviously, you know the impact of the covid pandemic. It's hit everybody across the industry as we all know yet, you all maintaining seem to be maintaining momentum planning. To break ground, I. Think on your New Facility in Florida. Fatty soon could finally give us props just a thumbnail sketch of what you hope to achieve over the next year or so and. And really perhaps finally of how you think they post, pandemic world might look for a supersonic market perspective. Yeah yeah, I, I agree that you know the the Kobe is Obviously been one of the most extraordinary crisis. Our generation has had to face A. But at the same time I do believe strongly that this is the time for great leadership and. A A company we're very focused on finding our way through this, but always keeping our focus in and and strategy. Around our long-term vision. So we as a lot of companies at made sure that we've. Done the things that were important to maintain a very strong liquidity position in area, currently has extremely strong lucrative position going forward. It was also extremely important to us. We kept our entire team. we worked really hard to go out and attract. The most brilliant creative folks in the world, and and so we've we've held onto that team and we've continued to make very strong progress towards the design of the airplane so thumbnail sketch over the next year year and a half we will ground break on our new Area Park Facility and Melbourne Florida at the end of the year Next year we will finish up our design review. and again the team will stay on track continued then to hire. and and meet our first flight in twenty twenty twenty-five. Internet service and twenty seven. I do think that the long term of you of the business jet market is you know business aviation is recovering much faster than a commercial Some of the day that I looked at at the end of June. Year year-over-year Biz Aviation has come back upwards almost where we were in this diamond twenty nineteen, so it's made a great recovery think it continues to make progress. in I see that again, not only the business aviation, but the high end of General Aviation and supersonics will continue to be very attractive. Great well. Tom Thank you again so much for your time. thing that's all. We've got time for for for this day, but Look forward to hopefully seeing you in person, and they are playing at an ash show sooner than later, so thank you. Thank you for your time. Thank you again. Really appreciate talking with you. Take care. You Take bye-bye..
Booms Sustainable Supersonic
"Supersonics and sustainability are two words. You rarely hear uttered together, but that's about to change. Boom supersonic is developing the first civil supersonic airliner of the twenty first century, and unlike the concord, it will be able to operate sustainably. Boom is building a one third scale demonstrator as a precursor to the overture, a seventy five seat mach two point two airliner it hopes will begin service later this decade. Senior Editor Guy North provides exclusive details about the boom project and a cover story that will appear in the June twenty nine edition of Aviation, week and space technology. He joins us here from Los Angeles so guy. What's the story? Joe, yeah well. It was It's been fascinating of course this whole idea of the renaissance, supersonic travel and You know we talked to area of course a couple of months ago and did a pretty good story about that evolving design We've seen that NASTAS X fifty nine low boom demonstrator is being assembled by Lockheed Martin right now in the skunkworks, so there's a lot of activity, but it goes. Boom boom, supersonic based in Colorado has been working for several years now on a design, which as you mentioned called the overture, and it's getting to the point now where the XP one demonstrator is kind of ready getting ready for prime time so that looking at rolling out this summer and putting into flight test next year. I should say by the way it's taken a lot longer than they or anybody else thought, but you know they're working their way through it and getting their. So how does the XP one demonstrator help with the development of the overture? Roy well good question in fact strangely enough. That's question number one that I put to Blake Shoal. WHO's the CEO of of boom and so I guess why not just let him tell us exactly what he told me. Right so the way XP one is it? Is it approving in flight? The key technologies we need sustainable, safe, economical, supersonic flight, and it had that you principally Amex materials and befall Trent, so using the statement of carbon fibre system that we would use them on overture, using the same design techniques where your ally in simulation of getting all the calibration day. in-flight Shit exactly how your models performed the real world, and then a similar approaches to high efficiency who supersonic intakes they can big difference, overall performance and it's. It's really important. You do this in hardware. Just in the wind tunnel installation because when you do when you do concept studies. Near you're not forced to solve all the problems. You can leave little bits of things. It unfinished assumed we get get the rest of the way there, but sometimes the last ten percent of work is ninety percent of the innovation really happens. Now of course, the the thing about the demonstrator is that it's also beginning to kickstart the supply chain as well a loads by and large a supply chain. That's probably going to be quite different when the when the production version comes out but I think one of the things that really is interesting is the fact that that's The supply chain is very interested in supersonics and getting more so particularly as they finding pressure from the classic at bussing, Boeing supply chains way, you know Boeing an episode of having their issues, so supply China's looking for other outlets and other avenues. And of course, one of the key parts that supply China's the engine. Nobody's going to go anyway without without a good engine boom on at the point yet of being up to say particularly where they all with that and where the selections but. In, this question, I asked I asked bike. You know what the situation was, so this is what he had to say about. This supply China on propulsion. And when we started bill six years ago, frankly people thought we were crazy and It was the this was a thing. That was some bad idea. An audible and that's that's that's really changed, and you see across the industry of writing efforts. Supersonics were credible. And when that? When that starts to get internalized the supply chain people. Stop thinking like well. Is this worth doing. Back out instead they start thinking what if this happens part of it? At that changes that really changes a lot of the conversations and if you are. A big piece of your business comes from widebody aircraft and the most profitable passengers during the wide bodies into supersonic. That, it's actually a bad thing if you don't have a supersonic

K. and I have visited there many times at Rupp arena for Wildcats games in in fact I just went for a wedding couple months ago and I love it and one of the things that I love to do with this drink Bourbon when I'm down there to go to the distilleries along the Bourbon trail of Lexington and all across Kentucky such a cool thing because if you're like me you know there's nothing better than sitting back on a cold night or maybe a warm summer night glasses good Bourbon maybe just one one piece ice in there maybe just need and just enjoying your sip and it's just such a it's delicious it's delicious especially with the Kentucky Derby that's supposed to be in the air right now it's like boy what we do without that well we know that a bunch of you guys are big Bourbon fans there's been a Bourbon Bulma here in the states of the last couple of years for joining us here on the show this is very cool we'll talk to master distiller Chris Morris at Woodford reserve and I love Woodford stuffy joins us here on the show this morning to lend some intellect a little ingenuity a little little information to our Bourbon tasting and Bourbon enjoyment Chris good morning how you doing today thank you for having us on my pleasure I appreciate you jumping on it it's a little weird obviously I'm sure in your neck of the woods without the Kentucky Derby this time of year how bizarre is it not to have that huge party that huge race that everything kind of revolves around this month it was very strange when you think of the Kentucky Derby festival the two are now three weeks of other use that nonstop events and parties and galas and which is quiet this year absolutely quiet even the marathons and other races didn't go off the steamboats didn't roll along the Ohio River it was weird really is weird especially for horse racing fans just ports France general because it's such a mile marker of the calendar spring summer it cetera you know it's interesting because I think that a lot of people drink Bourbon but don't really know the history behind the Bourbon what separates Bourbon from and from a normal whiskey barrel well that's a great question whiskey is a whiskey whether it's made in Scotland Ireland Tennessee Kentucky or elsewhere it's a grain based spirit that has to be aged in oak and some other technical rules to it but I'm a whiskies whisky that's like saying a horse is a horse and we know Kentucky thoroughbred is just not a typical horse right and that's the way we feel about Bourbon Bourbon skews me as the most exacting rules governance production of all the whiskies we alone have to use a brand new oak barrel every time but of course and hope it all has to be charged on the inside we've got each wonderful four seasons that no one else in the world has allows our Bourbon to mature and a different style than you would find elsewhere we've got this wonderful limestone water that's one of the reasons we have the thoroughbred horse breeding industry in the heart of Kentucky right around that would preserve distillery that limestone water makes strong bones and horses and makes great whiskey and we got no house we've been making whiskey in Kentucky since the seventeen seventy I think we figured it out by now so when you see Bourbon that is made across seas Japanese Bourbon or other places in the country here in the US what do you think about ego ask you not to knock off well they can't call it Bourbon that's uniquely United States but there are people trying to make whiskies like us as you said Bourbon is hot Bourbon is booming and I hope would never have dreamt when I started in the industry DA that the term Bourbon would be eight case descriptor in with around the world nope the hips of Bourbon notes of Bourbon like notes when they used to look down their nose at it now they're trying to associate with us which is great yes so true master distiller at Woodford reserve Chris Morris joins us here on the show that's important that's important factoid you can not be called Bourbon unless it is made in the U. S. is that correct that is correct but it does that's been made in Kentucky just could be anywhere in the US could be called Bourbon yes Bourbon is the distinctive spirit of America and of course it was born and bred raced and perfected in Kentucky but we share with the rest of the country which is just which is great and in nineteen sixty four an act of Congress made it the distinctive spirit of America and many of us get tacky think that's probably the only thing Congress has ever done right before so what do you think there's been such a booming Bourbon because you're right I mean if you went back twenty years it's not viewed the same way as it is now there's all these craft Bourbons there's all these distilleries open to the public and people really are just they're they're drawn to the taste and now they're sold there's there's thousands of different you know skews up it what what do you think that's born out of the last couple of years well I'm going to be quite honest with you if it would reserve the launch of what reserve in nineteen ninety six we made a determined effort to change the industry and it came in two forms we we developed our now classic iconic slash eight model that just changed the the the the visual presentation of Bourbon before that everybody was in square bottles in black and white labels and we became a Mormon elegant stylish approach to Bourbon and people started thinking on is that a cognac is Adam all whiskey what is that it's it's so handsome no it's Bourbon they couldn't believe it but the key thing is the model we'll sell you want it's in the model that sells you over and over again and we put together a philosophy of flavor formation that was quite unique and that is to make a complex yet balanced Bourbon that everybody can enjoy and we did some very interesting things that you know Bourbon was on the decline famous distilleries were closing in and we purchased a long abandoned called silent distilleries had not made a drop whiskey since nineteen fifty nine we restored this historic distillery in Woodford county and put in old fashion process copper pot stills cypress wooden fermenters we turn the clock back to make a modern Bourbon we went back in time in that G. S. energize the industry like if you guys can do it we can do it and that really helps spur on this craft the the story moves would preserve real changing point in the history of our industry is it amazing now how valuable some Bourbons are I mean you know having a wife that went to Kentucky and now friends all across the state I now see the yeah this kind of industry ecosystem around Bourbon and you know they're talking about bottles for two hundred dollars three hundred dollars thousand dollars because it's a certain specification and it's just amazing to me that there's this kind of underground coal could you get that you got to get to this distillery early gonna get to this place really early that this is going to sell out you get to know somebody on the inside is it amazing to you to see how how valuable the most valuable Bourbons have become over the last couple of years it really has D. A. I. R. D. N. I still I'm still sort of live in the past where we gotta earn our way we got to keep working hard and it's hard to believe that people are waiting in line overnight outside a package stores get which is which is just tremendous and another big turning point for us and for the industry which is going back to Churchill Downs and the Kentucky derby on the derby didn't run eighteen seventy five in Kentucky in the derby had never endorse a single government in its history in in nineteen ninety nine when we've been on the market for a mere three years Churchill Downs asked us to be the official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby of course we are so honored started our tradition making Derby commemorative models and then of course three years ago we became the presenting sponsor of the Kentucky Derby and I'll never forget the late John Ashton Chris hook and we're now would preserve will be connected to the Kentucky Derby there will always be the Kentucky Derby you name the number prison about workers are employed it just chills up and down my spine impartially he passed away just a couple months after he told me that it was just amazing so having with reserve on the national stage having that the derby affiliated with something cool and hot again you know Bourbon I think will help both of us Chris Morris is the master distiller at Woodford reserve he joins us this morning here on the show give us a good tip how do you make the perfect mint julep what's the key to a great mint julep Peter great mint julep besides the Bourbon is make it crash make it one of the time make it to your specifications some people Bob heard I've been making the job site I figured out I mean the first night joke forty five years ago and over all these years I hear I don't like mint juleps are too sweet well don't put as much sugar I don't like it delivers to many don't put as much maintenance I don't like my job I can't taste the Bourbon what but lots of would preserve and make it look the way you want it to tech it's not rocket science make it the way you want to be and you have a great house before I let you go there are now so many as we said really valuable bottles of Bourbon so people are collecting bottles of Bourbon to try to find the best quality Burbage ones that they really really love I just had a friend of mine gave me something from Kentucky that he only gets every so often so I'm so excited to try it and I want to know what is the most pure away to have a great Bourbon is it me which is just room temperature no Weiss is it one cube of ice in the middle what do you think is the best way to get the best flavor out of the great Bourbon my weight is one Ice Cube and again you might prefer neat splash water but I think an ice cube which helps open up the aroma dilutes the whiskey a little bit just that Matt clinking sound in the glass it all comes together so little with reserve and Ice Cube in your set what I also love that I learned at a tasting at a Kentucky wedding that I was at a horse farm was actually you have to have one sip of Bourbon to get to the second super you actually taste the flavor the first one opens up all these olfactory senses in your in your nose in your taste budget set or you can't really takes over for the first time you've got to separate the second time just to finally get that that realty for the third time you get even more out of it it's pretty amazing it really is and that's just that's just good of course and science you know you as you put anything in the mail specially something like a great Bourbon your your brain your palate it's like what's going on here I'm trying to figure this out and now you've got everything you just said working and that next step now to bring the moon this is urban this is a bit can defy you can identify the brand I there's a caramel and hints of an hour so again it is it's it's a process so in one step it's not enough that's right the Kentucky Derby will be back with us this fall so we're looking forward to that we look forward to seeing the horse racing back on the schedule and an American classic like the derby.
In Black America: Spencer Haywood
"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses. And thank you me because you know in that situation just in terms of dollars from Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A. It's just a lot of love was having an and I see in Detroit and it's always been that way you know. They've always reached out and help each

"We're talking about the burgeoning democratic race for the nomination to run against who. We assume will be the Republican candidate the incumbent, President Trump, and this is a great time to be a democratic campaign worker because right now all these campaigns are lining up people are already organizing states opening offices. I mean, it's really serious. So people are already getting paid to work in presidential campaigns for twenty twenty it's starting already, and you know, it comes up pretty quickly. You have the Iowa caucuses in February third in two years. Followed a week later by the New Hampshire. Primary followed a week later by the Nevada caucuses man cares. And then the South Carolina primary, which will be a big one on the twenty ninth. All the candidates seem to be going to South Carolina this next week. In fact, that's going to be the first place that Kamala Harris will make a campaign stop in a couple of days now that she is an official candidate. And I think that's because maybe they're seating New Hampshire to Senator. Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts who is running a she hasn't officially announced it, but she's announced her her exploratory committee, maybe they just figure. Well, she's from Massachusetts. Maybe show win the New Hampshire primary. Let's focus our attention. Elsewhere. And of course, some of them will end up practically living in Iowa for the next two years because of those caucuses, you know, you get that that I out of the gate you get a good showing there. And that might help you in your Hampshire and then moving into South Carolina. I guess I shouldn't have downplayed the Nevada caucuses because that's a that's an evolving state. It's going from red to blue right now still kind of purple, and it's a lot of opportunities there for Democrats, especially with all the the unions in Las Vegas and all that. All right. We are at ten minutes before the hour. Let's talk to the aura in Radford, Pennsylvania. Good morning. You all excited about a presidential campaign already here. Laura. Somebody better than Trump. You have a favorite so far. Or are you still looking to pick one? Take one. Yeah. So what what are you need? Is it more important to be Trump? Or is it more important to get somebody who lines up with your particular set of issues. Got him. Now. Business. Yeah. Oh, you don't want them running their business. Well, what about what about Michael Bloomberg? He's a billionaire, and he he created a business from nothing and made billions of dollars. And also ran the biggest city in the country. What about what about Michael Bloomberg? So would you hold it against him because he's got a business background? Him. To get the ship down. And that's not right. Yeah. S that we need the money. They can't work. I'm sorry to hear that. Yeah. It's a it's a bad situation where we are now a month into the shutdown, and and that's that's energizing a lot of people who might want to run against him. Anyway. Well, you keep you keep your eye on that you call us back, and let us know when you come to a decision on who you're going to vote for thanks for checking in with us. This morning are certainly appreciate it. Let's go up to David up in Vashon island, Washington. Good morning. David. Good morning, Michael. How are you? I'm pretty good. How you doing? That bad. Dad? Here's Seattle's named mister Howard show. Mr. stove us, right Starbucks. Yeah. He is now he seems pretty close to running. Do you think he actually will? Because he said he was gonna run as a third party. Dependent. Anybody that runs? Independence going to get re-elected. Yes. Well, it's the Ralph Nader that's the Ralph Nader affect best the Ralph Nader affection. Yeah. Go ahead continue. I'm sorry. Also said that. The of the Seattle SuperSonics and him and Klay Bannock inspired. And when the deal went through this the Sonics to Oklahoma City. Well. Stay home and makes Martin Joe instead of running president. That's that's good. Yeah. Just keep the coffee, go go. Get us a Cup of coffee and stay away from politics. Yeah. You don't want. If you're a democrat. You do not want that guy spending all that money. Party, buddy. Oh, yeah. We'll get real absolutely. Because we know Trump's people will stay with him. He's got that hard that hard rock hard support from his people. They're not going anywhere. And if you if you split up the democratic vote, you're going to re elect the president. So that's got a scare people in the Democratic Party. Anyway. That's why bloom out of the water today now. Well, at least he's telling you early. So you have a chance to I don't know what you do to dissuade him from running. Stay home. Yeah. All right. Well, I hope he's listening. Anyway, thanks so much for the call certainly appreciate it. I in Charleston good morning as you sit there on the on the coast and your beautiful city. What does it look like from your vantage point fast, two minutes here? Well, first off, I don't believe Trump will be an office once all the information released recordings and the documents of what he's been doing. He's not gonna just quit. He's just not going to quit and as long as his basis with him. They Republicans in the Senate aren't going to vote to impeach no matter what they find. So I. People are going to demand something be done. I'll be that. As it may. I'm not buying into this four year campaign for president. I'm getting sick of this billionaire flood money even all of these political talking heads from all these think tanks making a living off of it. We need to limit these campaigns down to a year at the most this is this is with everything going on. And they wanna talk about twenty twenty. We've got problems here now that we're not dealing with. And this is just a waste of time. Miss this right here is a political circus being put on by billionaires because there's so much money involved in this, and so many people feed me from the trough, particularly the small market route TV stations and radio stations. All these infrastructure. That's being supported by this. Okay. This is ridiculous of day. We need to bring us back to order does your public servants. They need to do their job. And right now, they're not in by the way for the people out there. You get a grip grow a spine. Shut the airports down and show 'em who's boss because they don't give a damn about you. Yeah. Well, that was certainly probably put the the the kind of pressure that would end the government shutdown right away. But that could be dangerous also. And I I think we all feel the way that you do about the campaigns and we'd like to see them shorter. But how do you do that? You can't just tell somebody. You know? I mean, this constitutional issues you just can't tell somebody you can't run for president. Or you can't talk. You can't raise money. I mean, those are all enshrined in the constitution. It's all part of the second amendment amendment. How would we actually change that? So you got about thirty seconds to fix the world here. I ice gone. All right. Okay. All right. Let's should we try to squeeze in one last caller just about out of time. Right. Let's go to Dave and Punta Gorda Florida. We got literally thirty seconds. Dave. Michael. Unbelievably agree with Brie quarters. I. That's.

"Now, you're false you false his why. But I understand, and it's it's a respectful false. I understand what you're saying. Because we recognize Steph curry universally is the greatest shooters we've ever seen. Here's why he doesn't transcend eras the way you would like him. Two. I got news. Are you ready for this? How for before I answer this question? How far do you? Go back watching basketball. I'm forty five. So okay. So you're you're my generation my generation, I I suspect you remember downtown, Freddie, Brown from the Seattle SuperSonics how about Dale Ellis. The have our Ricky Pierce. How about Greg Hodges? Yeah. How about how about Reggie Miller Ray Allen? And all of these other guys what I'm saying to you is that you have to understand that what they would have done to Steph curry in years past you know, what they would have done they'd beat him up. Yeah. But you think LeBron and Durant would have been able to go up the mill like they do LeBron everybody listened to our history. We ain't see somebody's six nine to sixty that can do what LeBron can do. So yes, he would have been able to do it to some degree. When you look at a Kevin the ring you can't teach six eleven with a seven six wingspan with a handle who could pull up from three. So I'm saying by sheer physicality not gain. I'm not even getting into the game by the sheer weight of their built of their build. They would have been able to transcend eras in a fashion that Steph curry might have had a more difficult time doing. One more question. Go ahead. Do you like the game that it was played, Dan? Or the way the game is played. Now. I like the way the game is played now better. But what I don't like is how protected the league's protective the leagues are of the modern day player. I think that the game could have gotten softer because it was too rough house in the eighties and to a lesser degree in the ninety s boy pisses in the Knicks with everybody from Kim banister to Oakley and Anthony Mason car rest to solar stuff like that. But I do believe the league is going to far the other way, for example last night, for example, nothing physical, but Rudy Gobert calls out on the fish. You you call a foul on him on a jump ball one second into the game. And then after that, you know, he gets called for a second fast. And then he slaps a paper Cup off the scores table and that warrants and a Jack Shen come on man come on we've gotten a little bit too soft. I'm not saying. That it should be what it used to be. But I love this game. I just think that when nineteen thousand people pack eighteen nineteen thousand people pack a basketball arena, you cannot be throwing pay players out because they slapped a paper Cup K. But be there you can't do that. That's just wrong. Not that slapping a player, somebody fine. But you can't do that to those fans out there they deserve. You gotta give them a better reason than that give him attack give him some time to calm down. And then after that.

That's my remembers that the satin basketball star jacket not the pullover Parker that we all wanted a couple years later. Those are the ones that I sat in. Did you have one? I had the pullovers with the the pocket in the middle that right to that. That was a couple years later. That's more that's closer to your era. In my era, when I was in seventh and eighth grade ninth grade, the satin starter jacket was the hottest item going Sam. At first his reaction is befuddled. I mean he was a little bit bewildered for a moment and then he goes, you know what? You're right, you're right. I am. Gonna take this jacket all and I was like, no, no, no, no, no, no man, I don't want. I don't want your jacket. Thank you. That's hilarious. No, and he goes now, man, I insist and I kind of look over Chad chads looking to me with his grin on his face. I was like, Sam, I'm not taking your jacket. I declined three times, but he insisted he takes his jacket off. He puts it back and he goes, I need one thing from you. And I said what he said you wear this jacket on ESPN and you tell people how much we love basketball out here. You wear this jacket on ESPN and you remind them that the Seattle SuperSonics lift, but we're coming back and I said, dude, that's easy. And so what did I do? I wore it on the entire Maureen McGee program on this c. network last week and I can't describe to you the reaction to that jacket. Everybody wants my new Sonics jacket Sargus. Cain, have it. I mean, it is cooled, Travis. It even has. I don't remember my bulls jacket having the same lining that this one does. It's like quilted. It's yellow quilted interior. I don't remember mine having quilted interior. This must have been the luxury model. Star jackets started didn't make the best because I had a, I had a bowls in calbos those things they, you could go through Alaskan those jackets, and you'd be good to go there suite. Two man like this thing looks so CU. It's a couple sizes larger than the typical smmediate that I like to Don. But nonetheless it is as epic as it gets and I can't thank salmon enough. I will wear it proudly over here in Charlotte, North Carolina, and it's cool man because I can get away with wearing it because it's retro there are no Seattle SuperSonics right now. So I'll tell you what I want, man, you know what I want in terms of like gear. I want a an original Charlotte Hornets like their original uniforms, which that was nineteen eighty eight. So Travis was about six years old. Nope, I was born eighty eight. You were born in eighty eight. Yep. So Travis wasn't even born yet in nineteen eighty eight. And the original Charlotte Hornets uniforms were sick. They had these purple and teal little thin, pin stripes on them. Big bubble numbers. The Hornets mascot was a big bubble mascot, low, Bumblebee. And or I guess as it were big hornet and they were just the coolest ever Muggsy Bogues Alonzo Mourning Larry Johnson, Kelly, Puka all those guys that we loved as kids. But you know what I want bro. I want a Michael Jordan, twenty three original Hornets jersey, and I don't know how pull that off. But man, I want it speaking of tire. So I saw you rock in your Jay's up in Seattle Katie Jay's every twitchy do because it was raining and like the streets were dirty and Chad, my buddy.

"Isn't that crazy how it works. I mean, I'm being dead serious. That's that's how Kevin Durant elevates himself as all time grade is v. goes over to the SuperSonics if they were to become a team yet. PLO. I mean, that's what I want to happen. I mean, I figure, like I said, there's no point in the clippers, their policy pointless team in LA the made the playoffs last couple of not last year, but they had a nice little run where they lost in the second round whole bunch of times. And other than that, I mean, they've never been a relevant franchise. And I'm not trying to hate or anything like that. But I feel like what I've said so far is the truth. I mean, the clippers are gonna get moved eventually, like that's no doubt. There's no way they spend the rest of their time as a franchise in the NBA earned the LA. That's that's not possible. Maybe they end up getting moved to Las Vegas since that seems to be the move amongst professional sports teams. Now. But yeah, if I'm the NBA I'm definitely figuring out a way to maybe convinced the bomber to move that team back over to Seattle. I made it needs to happen again. Clippers fans might be listening to this knowledge. Stay in LA. Sorry. No can do. L. a.'s only big enough for one team in, like I said, that's the Lakers in. It'll always be Lakers care less what the clippers have done in Hollywood better than the Lakers. Over the last few years, you'll never be as love does Lakers outlet. So why stay there? Why not become the SuperSonics where the only team Seattle and you'll probably sell out every single game. Seattle fans are some of the best in all of the United States when it comes to professional sports. I mean, it's a win win decision there. I don't know why it happened. Hasn't happened sooner. They got the arenas and all that. It's possible. I think moving NHL team over there. So you just have the basketball team play their excersi-. Why haven't we brought this supersonic spec and why on worth? Why on earth did we move the SuperSonics over to Oklahoma City? I don't. I don't understand that one either. Like that makes no sense to me. Like Oklahoma City doesn't sound like a basketball City College city earth college place. I mean. I guess I guess they just couldn't find get public funding for stadium in Seattle. That's why they moved. Thanks a lot. Seattle. Thanks a lot. You gave us the Oklahoma City thunder. No, I'm just kidding thunder. Actually, pretty decent. They do well in the playoffs to sell out all that. And there was show up for the big games. But like I said, I mean, I don't get the clippers letting like getting rid of Bruce Bowen. It's not like, I'm not sure if this is a big story, anything like that. But since we do talk about anything else going on for basketball in the segment, illegals a good idea to bring up. I mean, chances are the quiet probably. I'd say actually as much as I don't want to the clippers do how a decent chance kuwa- courageous seems wants to play in. LA doesn't really matter whether it's for the Lakers clippers they're just wants to be an LA. But I mean if you were gonna fibers ball, why not just get rid of him after the season after this upcoming one. In. I mean, if quite wasn't to come to the clippers because of Bruce bones comments, choirs just soft. And I mean, that's all. That's all it is to it. It's crazy choirs become the biggest. Even the NBA before is, like I said, I'm amazed by because the dude hasn't said anything yet. Like Hawaii Leonard can never go back to being that humble guy who doesn't like goes about his business and all that. That's not who who is going to be portrayed is now on the NBA..

The SuperSonics come back because I'm sure the SuperSonics comeback katie's go over there, lead that team. But as far as the warriors right now go, I mean, there's no reason to not think they're going to win at all. I mean, even without DeMarcus cousins, that'd be the same amount. Same kind of thinking. Now you factor into markets cousins who I mean, he doesn't have to come back at a certain time. He's gotta be back for the playoffs which you should be. Plus the warriors aren't going to be sweating him coming back fast or anything like that because I mean they'll be the best team in the west in the NBA either way. I mean, it's ridiculous how good this team's God and how low that front office has done to build this team up. I mean, maybe things change of Katie ends up staying in. Okay. See go into Boston. But I mean, even if Katie were leave after the season. 'cause I think he can't opt out. I still think the warriors of the favorites to win the title again without. I mean, why wouldn't you? We know what this team looks like without Kevin rat. We've seen this team win a title without Kevin Durant. Only people realize that I think Steph curry has more of an impact on the warriors and Kevin Durant. What does Steph misses a few games that team is shambles they can get by without Kevin Durant. But we'll see what ends up happening the season. Definitely. I'm looking forward to see what new rivalry start up, but I'd have to say as far as the one that set right now, it's Sixers Celtics said both got playoff history, same division, and. I mean, things have pretty heated between both teams in the playoffs last year. So we'll see how they do the season, but either way we're going to wrap it up here next up.

"One of them seems to be almost a foregone conclusion that Seattle, we'll see their SuperSonics return, and then you have team, you know, places like St Louis Louisville, Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh and a number of other studies included in the expansion process. So yeah, it's fun and it does. The NBA is at a point unlike the NFL where the NFL expansion at this point would be. A scheduling nightmare, but the NBA's at a point where they can just adopt the NFL you know, four divisions in these conference model and you can do it pretty easily at going up to thirty two teams. I'm excited about this and I'm very excited to see the SuperSonics back. One of my. One of my favorite playoff series of all time, and I was, I was very young man at this point was the Shawn camp, Gary Payton, Seattle SuperSonics against the Tim Hardaway, Chris Mullin, Mitch, Richmond, Golden State Warriors, love, love, love that series. So much fun. And you know, Seattle fans deserve a basketball team. Obviously that stadium, there's going to be need to be a new arena built, but. I'm excited for Seattle potentially get a team again. Sure. I mean, you know, I've issues with the Seahawks, but not not their fans by any means. I think that that's if that's all on the table. Obviously, I think he had the SuperSonics or more than deserving. I think the other thought to me would be, you know, it's only a matter of time. We keep hearing that it might happen to it or what happened at some point. But one is when you start thinking about, you know, international expansion. Mexico City was on that list. You're absolutely right. Yeah. So let's go city is a natural next up, possibly another team in Canada, and then Wendy start thinking about going overseas. So that's those are all very, very interesting ideas that are probably a little bit further down to play one. But a lot of sense to me and it's, I mean, basketball. There's been a lot of talk about how the NFL's ratings are down, but basketball. I mean, it seems is ready to maybe step to the floor as far as you know, being big ratings or obviously we're getting a new CBA in part because the teams or the the money is there so much of it, and it's getting split up and reallocated in hand over fist, all these, these owners of these teams are making tons of money now. So you know, the TV deals are Intel and it's very interesting. I mean the NBA in a really interesting spot relative to football, I think, and and it's only gonna get more and more. Popular as warriors, try to win that title and the Cavs defend their crown, and there's the NBA amazing stuff. I live the best we've seen since you know Jordan era. It is, you know, there's some fundamental problems with the sport on some of them are unavoidable given despite in the salary cap. But you know what? I don't. I'm not an advocate for super teams. It's going to be, don't get me wrong. It's going to be a lot of fun watching Durant and Steph curry, and Klay and dream on play together. But it also feels like they're, it feels like a foregone conclusion that we're going to see Cleveland and Golden State in the NBA finals. Again this year, which is cool for you know a rivalry reason, but also sort of deemphasizes the rest of the regular season..
