How The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Affected Energy Industry In Japan
"On your it's not easy to get rid of nuclear power. Okawa is right. Taking apart. A nuclear power plant is not easy day CI has been in the Decommissioning process essentially since the disaster. And that means every day over 4000 workers stream into the plant, clocking in To tackle a vast array of problems. The radiation levels here are much lower than they were nine years ago. In most areas of the plant, you could walk around without special protective gear down by the reactor's, though the ones that exploded levels are still high, and visiting time to them is limited. Kozo Takahashi are TEPCO guide takes us down to see them, bringing into stark reality the challenges that TEPCO has faced here since the disaster. Crews of workers are bustling around in full protective suits. Takahashi points out each reactor, each with its own set of problems. He says a new robot had to be invented to get to melted fuel in one another had to be essentially rebuilt just to take it apart again. And then there's the problem of waste your time here at GH Eve, huge amounts of water pumped into the damaged reactors every day to keep them cool. In the end result is more than one million tons of that water piled up in storage tanks contaminated with radioactive trillium. Storage space is running out, and the Japanese government is considering dumping it all into the ocean, much to the dismay of local communities worried about environmental impact. This is all just a taste of what it means to decommission Daiichi, which will take an estimated 40 years and nearly $200 billion to produce no electricity. At all. The rest of Japan's nuclear power program isn't faring a whole lot better by 2011 nuclear power produced nearly a third of the nation's energy. But after the disaster, the Japanese government imposed new safety regulations that took every nuclear reactor off line. All 54 of them, and the Japanese public largely wants to keep it that way. Anti nuclear power sentiments friend rapidly after Fukushima. It was a very Great sense of betrayal. Alexander Brown is an Australian researcher in Japan. He studied the anti nuclear power protests that took off in 2011. He says that betrayal came largely from the fact that Japanese people had been assured that nuclear power was safe that no accident would ever happen. So it was much more than just about Ray, you have to pull out all the specifics of the accident itself. Huge protest broke out in Tokyo, tens of thousands of people marching through city streets and bright costumes, banging drums and Cymbals. And, of course, chanting the main slogans. Just give that one time we opposed nuclear power. The's big protests continued for months and spread to other cities. And even now, there's still protests everywhere. They're smaller, Brown says. And maybe not quite so eye catching, but it's sister and it's not going away. Which has left Japan in a kind of energy conundrum. With all those reactors offline, a lot more coal and natural gas had to be imported energy prices have gone up. As have greenhouse gas emissions. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his party have been pushing hard to restart the nuclear power program promising safety But needing to bring down costs and tackle climate change. The government on YouTube keeps saying you could apply the cheapest parcels. People don't trust it anymore. Tatsuo Suzuki is a former nuclear engineer and now professor at Nagasaki University. He says that the disaster and Fukushima made people completely rethink the cost of nuclear power. In broader terms, the social costs ofthe separation in the family. Losing the land losing their jobs. How can you measure all these impacts estimating the risk of nuclear power, But Suzuki says the choice is still a difficult one. When you factor in climate change and needing to reduce the use of fossil fuels, he equates nuclear power with a strong medicine that also has a potentially strong side effect. So which you will choose You may have to choose the nuclear power eventually means Clement chain is absolutely event for the world so the world may have to take medicine on nuclear power. But we have to very, very careful. And you have other choices. I would recommend the nuclear policy last Japan doesn't have a lot of other choices. Slowly, A handful of nuclear reactors in the country have restarted passing new safety regulations. Many more are held up in court battles as local governments refused to take the risk, and even more are slated to be decommissioned as utilities give up on them altogether. Back in Fukushima near Daiichi nuclear worker Kazu Okawa stops the car. And gets out to look at a site. He never thought he'd see tons of radioactive topsoil scraped from the Earth during the cleanup efforts being piled high next to the road. This is in Futaba, his old hometown, where much of the land has been slated as a storage site for this contaminated soil. Okawa says he'll never come back even if evacuation orders for the town are eventually lifted. Another guy who wants to live next to this. This nuclear waste. He shakes his head, almost in disbelief that I thought nuclear power was safe. Isn't thought it was 100% safe. But now, like a lot of Japan, he doesn't want anything to do with it. I'm afraid of nuclear power. In one moment it devastated our home is your home and now, Ochoa says he's 100% against it. Cat Langsdorf NPR NEWS Fukushima, Japan

How The Consensus Voting Mechanism Works
"So my name is Mush. Pot. Suzuki like the car last year a student at Yale University in Computer Science and mathematics and I'm supervised by Adrian Vata and from goalie. I'm very happy to be here and thank you for inviting me. I got exposed to your work. When I read the paper, I invited you to come on and talk about mostly today is how many freemasons are there consensus voting mechanisms in metric space so no less than three interesting ideas for me in the title maybe we should give some background to open up with consensus. What does that mean is that? Just the majority or how will we be using the word today? Consensus mechanism is Mecca Zeman which to select a candidate they're only if everyone agrees on it for instance, they said you're running for some group Peter, you get accepted only if everyone in the group agrees on it and you want you accepted otherwise. so that's like unanimity the Neha in here. Yeah. It's basically the same as unanimity but in different. Settings. Unanimity also implies that it's a property where you have if everyone agrees on that, you accept it but something can happen. If you know, let's say you can use different rules otherwise there's a different sort distinctions there, but it's basically the same as unanimity that particular choice leads to some interesting things and you guys are presented this really concise analogy to the freemasons. Well, I suppose getting down to the actual counter freemasons trying to conduct a census here that just formalizes. A funny title to give because as you know that freemasons are interesting sort of group there. Member only if everyone agrees on sort of it, fits our mechanisms today run their group through consensus voting Gotcha so it wouldn't surprise me if just given how much sort of folklore the surrounds the freemasons that there might be at least a few listeners confused about whether or not there are real organization. Could you throw a few facts Edis? have. Amazing temples in Montreal, phrases, I live in Montreal. So they have a huge temple here and they're very active and I don't know too much about their inner workings or I've never been inside the doors but they're very oh yeah you can go to their building for instance so real organization and in terms of getting accepted into it if I wanted to go in that building up there in. Montreal is this the actual mechanism they literally use or is this a sort of an analogy? So I don't know this for sure but I heard I read online that in order to get accepted that everyone in taboo are everyone in that group has agree on it. So is the medicine that they actually use. Cool. Well, I guess whenever that started it wouldn't be surprising that it could grow quickly. Right, if I was thinking of starting my own such organization and I I, invited my wife. Now we have two members and perhaps she and I can agree her sister joins and my sister joins. But at some point, someone's going to say no to the next member what can we learn about that and how do we study it? What are the interesting Totta questions? So you have two different settings. Here. So wondering is not remodeled people's opinions and you say I prefer my wife says I prefer my daughter you know or or so and so forth we need to the preferences of people. So one of the classic ideas in voting theory and actually just modeling through machine learning or any sort of the setting is this prioritizing people's opinion or privatizing people. So for instance, let's say you could be. Leaning like the political left or right. There's a spectrum for which you are lighted. Let's sure you can be at the centre or you could be very right thing or it could be a very level. So we can model that as any number between minus one and one, but two one being the right-wing minus one being the left-wing. So then that's one example of how you prioritize people right? Because you wanted to this rigorously and mathematically. So we need a method to represent people and our model is at. ISSUE, have this in which you represent urine. You couldn't space in some point. Is You your opinion and you vote for someone who similar to? Let's say you're very right wing than some candidate comes in then you're more likely to vote for someone who is right being than left-wing to someone who is closer to you in opinion or characteristic that's our model of but this question was asked actually before in one emissions but in one dimension. So you're basically just have an inch between minus one and one, and this was an extra Unin by very famous. Nogal. Yes. Paper in two, thousand, sixteen, two, thousand, fourteen I forget. But we did this in higher dimensions in actually specifically two dimensions because it introduces so much more complexity when you go up in a dimension, right so Francis, why do we need higher dimensions is because before you you're presenting people left and right but people are more complex than that. You can't just represent a person by just one number for instance you. have to use multiple features as people say. So you have this multiple characteristics of people and they become dimension. So we do this in two missions surprisingly the mathematical difficulty of asking this question John Huge becomes actually much more difficult in two dimension than one dish very interesting and I guess maybe the answers grounded in a lot of details. But is there an essence to what that challenges is it that there are more simulations or? Is there a complexity theory aspect of this? Why is a two dimension so much more difficult than one so for instance, if you look at random shape, you can characterize this voting as looking at something called random convex or some random shapes. The question bows down on understanding certain random shapes and here assuming that the candidates are appearing. Let's say uniformly at on interval you have existing group members and she accepts somebody then he becomes. Group member and you evolve. So the candidates are uniform at each time step and so to answer the question we knew looking at this sort of random judge shapes in one dimension there's only one shape is just an interval intimate conviction in one dimension is just an interval. Some number between attack could be minus zero point five to zero point one is, but let's say you go into the mission all of a sudden there's so Many different shapes so many different things second happen if the shape is convinced or even just not convex in two dimensions does different more complex shapes can get in one mission. You only have interested in two dimensions you have gone as you have China goals, you have something that approximates your face even that could be shade in two missions, but that's not going to happen in Wand mission
Ryan Reynolds urges young Canadians to quit partying amid COVID-19 pandemic: 'Don't kill my mom!'
"Actor honoring the request of the premiere of his native British Columbia. By asking young people not to party during the pandemic, he says, while they they may stay healthy. They can spread the virus and make older people very sick. One specific person Ryan has in mind. I hope that young people in D C. Don't kill my mom, frankly or David Suzuki or each other. Let's not like Let's not kill anyone. I think that's reasonable. BC is Canada's third most populous province and has seen just over 4000 cases of Corona virus. We haven't yet heard from Seth Rogan, who also was asked for a celebrity shout out. A new study confirms
"Years after I took the monastic vows trading all my worldly possessions for a pair of monk's robes I moved into a monastery that was off the grid remote and blissfully quiet one day. My friend Kim sent me a letter saying timber I. Understand why you love living there I mean who wouldn't but how can you honor your vows to be of service to others if you cut yourself off from the rest of the world and keep yourself tucked away in the mountain somewhere Kim didn't point out my hypocrisy because she's cruel or judgmental. She did it to shed light on what I couldn't see from where I was sitting that. My actions were not congruent with my words. There was no reason for me to get defensive because Kim wasn't on the offensive and fact Kim's comment had nothing to do with her personal needs or opinions it was about me saying one thing and doing another don't get me wrong I don't regret moving to the monastery in the first place. But after Kim's intervention, a couldn't justify staying envy see non violent communication considers unsolicited advice a form of bullying and judgment but Kim's comment wasn't unsolicited I have an understanding with all my friends that being supportive of one. Another does not mean blindly cheering each other on, for instance, if any of. US are about to repeat a harmful cycle that we swore. We wanted to break the drinking to excess getting into another dysfunctional relationship or deviating from a path. We have previously claimed we wished to follow we welcome intervention I. Mean I wouldn't tell my buddy John to stop smoking because never claimed he wanted to stop but I would definitely urge my friend Ashley to spend less money if she had previously told me that getting out of debt was her top priority. You see it's not about pushing my opinions on anyone. It's about supporting their decisions regardless of what I think and Buddhism we take refuge and what are called the three. Jewels, the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha the teacher, the teachings and other students on the path. My friends are my Sanga or my congregation if you prefer, and since you are my friend in your on this path with me, this month's intervention is similar to what Kim offered me many years ago. It's an invitation to reflect on areas in our lives where we are being hypocrites areas where we are not behaving in ways that are congruent with who we wish to be, and sometimes we even publicly claimed to be. We aren't always honest with ourselves because we often have too much shame or guilt around the decisions we make other. Times we are oblivious that we are out of alignment today. I urge you not to look back on your past behavior and wonder why you've done what you've done before but to decide how you can live from this moment forward. So that what you think what you say and what you do are all in harmony I warn you though something's going to have to shift to because you will either have to change what you think what you say or what you do before. You can live a congruent life and other words do your decisions reflect your values peck? Do you even know what your values are many of us never take? The time to write them down. For example, do we actually value being considerate or do we just like to think of ourselves as considerate neighbors even though we regularly run the dishwasher at one am in our third floor apartment with no consideration to our downstairs neighbors these little things make a big difference because the way we do one thing is the way we do all things. So let's do it all mindfully congruence consistency and transparency require us to be vulnerable and honest with ourselves about our strengths and our shortcomings. So go ahead and write down the kind of person you wish to be as well as the kind of person you. Currently are, and you will see for yourself where you have some work to do consider this your own intervention, which is defined as the action of becoming intentionally involved in a difficult situation in order to improve it or to prevent it from getting worse interventions like black lives matter and the metoo movement have forced all of us to examine where we have unknowingly unintentionally or unconsciously racist or failed to demand equality even while we claimed to believe in it and just like simply wearing amongst rove's does not make a monk or wearing a cross necklace does not make you a Christian in the words of Tyler durden sticking feathers up your. But does not make you a chicken. What we're talking about is having a strong conviction to live in line with our values so that we stay in our integrity and avoid all unnecessary suffering or battling with internal struggles. Suzuki row she said there are no enlightened beings. There's only enlightened activity. The people we consider enlightened are just like you and me they simply make enlightened activity part of their daily lives that is to say they walk the talk I think it's why my own teachers asked me one day. Why do you need the robes? Why can't you just be the guy in town with the bright is indeed why can't we all?
The Brain-Boosting Benefits of Exercise with Ryan Glatt
"Welcome to the broken brain podcast I'm your host. Droop ruin and each week by team, and I bring on a new guest who rethink can help you improve your brain help feel better and most importantly live more. This week's guest is Ryan. Ryan is a personal trainer and brain health coach with over a decade of experience in the health and fitness industries. He currently works alongside clinicians and researchers to study the facts of cognitively. Enhanced and comprehensive exercise plants at the Pacific Brain Health Center, here in Lovely Santa Monica California Ryan constantly seeks to learn about the health neuroscience, research and Practical Strategies both health coaching and personal training in context, which is why we brought him here, Ryan has pursued education from aiming clinks the brain I training institute, the Neuroscience Academy that Kaddoumi for brain, health and performance and many other places. He's currently enrolled in. In a Master's applied neuroscience program at King's College of London, he actively consults with companies who leverage exercise for brain health and educates and fitness professionals with the first course to comprehensively address exercise and brain health called the brain health trainer, course talk more about that later on in which he's educated over a thousand health and fitness Professionals Ryan welcome to the brain podcasts. Thanks for having me drew and you also. And people really loved it. That's we've set the intention. We did a documentary by the way. If anybody hasn't hasn't watched that documentary before a broken bring to. Click on the show notes. We'll make it available for anybody who hasn't seen, and you can sign up and check it out and see some of Ryan's recommendations. rebuilt on today's conversation so. We set out the intention when we first did that interview that we wanted to do an interview for the podcast. I'm glad it happened at the first interview that I'm doing in person in the world of. Semi Corentin and social distancing so Thank you for coming into the office. It's an honor. Thanks for having me so I wanNA start off with something which is I want to talk about dance? DANCE REVOLUTION So tell US anybody who doesn't know what it is. Tell us what it is, and why he became passionate about. Yeah, so dance dance. Revolution is a video game. It's an extra game. Extra Games are things that incorporate. And Gaming And or active video games it was followed by the success of like Nintendo. We for instance that became very popular dance dance. Revolution's interesting because it was popularized when I was a kid. Probably before that I think in the eighties and nineties, and it's essentially a game where you're controller is a pad that you stand on in the middle is you're standing place? You have an Arrow pointing forward pointing backwards to left and went to the right. There's arrows coming up from the bottom of the screen, and you have this answer key at the top. Top with those different directionally facing arrows, and it's to music, and it was a Japanese video game developed by Nami, and it was super popular in Arcades at home on the playstation, two and I grew up as a very overweight sedentary kid I had a pretty severe concussion in preschool, and so that created some concussion induced adhd so I was addicted to video games, and I think I would then have met the criteria for video game addiction now, which is like it wasn't every day, but it was like four hours a day of video gaming. into early call of duty before it was like an e sports thing so if I kept on it, I could probably been pretty well right now. Playing golf duty but I actually came across the home version of dance dance revolution when I was a kid in high school, actually no middle school early middle school and I lost a lot of weight playing that in my living room and it got me into. That got me to lose weight and it was motivating had all the elements we might talk about being important for an exercise program that is sensitive to brain health. And then it got me into the gym, and when I was in high school I joined a gym across from my high school, started weightlifting, watching personal trainers, we can go into that later, but essentially kick-started my personal health, an interest in fitness, and with that fitness that is cognitively enhanced meaning that I wasn't on an exercise bike, watching the news or staring into space I was cognitively engaged in that program since then dance dance revolution has been present. Among a lot of research context and neuro rehabilitation in older adults. It's not really that accessible anymore. You can't just get it off the shelf as much as you could. Previously, but it's really paved the way for a whole industry of active video gaming extra gaming. And it has spun off also clinical or serious extra gaming games that are used for health and clinical contexts such as some of the solutions. We use it the Pacific Brain Health Center. For the listeners who are like way, why are we starting the conversation video game? This all make sense so you know in reading about your story and getting a chance to get to know you over the last year, or so as we've been introduced by our mutual friend, Dr Shawn Patel who's a regenerative medicine doctor here in Los Angeles who's been on the podcasts before linked to that. I got a chance to see how your struggle as child especially with weight fitness and being sedentary. You found something you found something that created joy inside of you, and that's actually really related to a big part of what you teach right now we'll start off with the basics and we'll talk about what brain health coaches and some of the science of it, but you found something passionate that you that got you excited to move. Move something that you enjoyed and I. think that such an important thing as simple as it sounds. This video game was the thing that got started. That was ultimately the thing that starting your journey down this pathway of understanding the power of really what exercise can do for the brain, so let's start there. Let's start off with the basics you know. We've done so many episodes on the power of exercise, but as a refresher. Tell US why exercise is so important and what it does for the brain. Yeah, and there's been an explosion of research and media coverage about this I. Like to say that the mainstream popularity around exercise. The brain was really kick started by the book spark by Dr John Radi ever grateful for the work. He's done in popularizing that and twenty eighteen, the second most popular Ted Talk. In that year was Dr Wendy Suzuki talking about exercise in the brain and a lot of mainstream coverage, and you know in New, York Times and medium covering on boosting these posts on exercising, the brain has become very popular, and that's amazing, because it's also jumping on the kind of. The coattails of neural plasticity research showing that the brain can change. I think this audience has been very well presented that information right we to our brains were fixed. We were taught in high school. They have a certain amount of brain cells. Will Never. It's all downhill from there and it turns out. That's not true exactly. Neuro plasticity, so the brain's ability to functionally or structurally change. In response to experiences,
Blood on the Street
"Hello my photographic France. How are you I was planning to talk about something totally different today Especially that the topic of today's podcast is not an easy one and I have to admit that I have been struggling and thinking very very carefully whether to talk about this or not about three days ago hours very close to my decision to pass on the subject and just move on with my life. I knew that whatever I say it would get in trouble but thinks has changed in the last three three days and I decided to do it. I think I have to. If you haven't guessed just the word we'll do want to talk about today here. That's okay but let me give you a short review a recap for those of you. Who are living under the Rock Fuji Film Released Brand New Camera Iteration of their x one hundred line there x one hundred v Calmer is is a truly truly great product In fact I have to say. That's my favorite camera for street. Photography and full learning photography. In general I highly recommend it and as with every release release. There were number of X.. Photographers who promoted the camera with the videos. And one of them out was taught sewer Suzuki. I hope I'm pronouncing the name right. So Mr Suzuki is a street photographer from Japan and the video In this video he's shooting on the street in what you can call role. I guess aggressive way as Sword of Bruce Guild in the way. I'm sure what you you know what I'm talking about. Of course. Many people took offense in this a med thought. And did you do some strong. Very strong comments Fuji Comb decided to take this video down. Well what happened next. We all know it before four. I continue I have to mention something about Fujifilm. I'm not an ex photographer. rougher and I have never been paid by Jill having said that yes I have the great along standing professional relationship with Fuji as well as with other calmer companies because I often test the gear and they loved shooting with the gear and I know some people in the food universe. I have many X. photographer France Lance and I have to say I have tremendous respect for the Fuji Film Team for the Passion and drive to create this great great products. We are using but going back to them. Mr Suzuki case I think that Fujifilm Fujifilm had the right to pull out this video. Whether it was a good decision or not I don't know I don't yeah no all the Fox Pearl bubbly. I would handle disgrace slightly differently but again I don't know oh all the details so I'm not here to judge this decision and all Nestle I. I don't think there is any great solution here. It's really hard to be a winner in this situation but this is is not what I want to talk about it today. I want to talk about what happened and is still pill happening after the video was pull out I a few words about Mr Suzuki. Uh someone who who should street photography and teach it. I have to say that. I'm not a fan of his medals. I wouldn't feel comfortable shooting this way Nado and I would never teach my students to you to do the street. Photography the way Mr Suzuki Dos Yes I guess I have to be honest list with you. That his methods cross my personal line. But the seemed time I'm not here to condemn him. So I really want you to know that. Okay I'm not here to condemn him two days after the scandal so if I can call it this way erupted. I want to his website and I found some of his images to be truly really spectacular or Abreu skilled would say you can smell the street in them. There is no question that whatever ver- waste Mr Suzuki's using to create his imagery. It works.
Jeep, Suzuki models found to have broken EU emissions rules
"Word this week is that jeep and Suzuki diesel models broke emissions rules this time the road authority in Holland has ruled that the jeep grand Cherokee and Suzuki Batara must be fixed or face a ban on sales across Europe regulators across the world have been testing diesel models since Volkswagen group admitted in two thousand fifteen that used illegal software to cheat US emissions tests the scandal has spread from one region of the world to another and touched many brands five years later we know this much to be true VW was not alone they were just the first to get caught and the proof among others is the higher levels of harmful nitrogen oxide on the road make no mistake more brands will make the list in the dark cloud over the industry will continue to get heavier

"suzuki" Discussed on Skaana | Orcas and Oceans Podcast
"I said Hey. Let's go over and catch one would. This is a small one. And so we we motored over says it came just righted itself and went down but I thought an animal like that has got no tail on. It's it's really a funny looking creature. Everything must want to eat it. How the hell do you get them? Big and being so slow moving how the hell do you survive. Everything that wants to eat it. I don't even know if anyone's the poses the question I don't think we have a clue how how a creature Rachel that could survive. It's like a tree. You know when you think about a tree it's amazing seed falls and wherever falls us. That's it it can't jump up and say this is a shitty place. I WANNA move to where there's more water food it stuck sends. Its its route down. And then on the basis of water sunlight and and carbon dioxide it survives survives and creates itself. Everything wants to eat a bloody tree. When it's that big deer raccoons everything wants to eat it? How the hell how did they survive? You know and now only now we're beginning to realize holy cow. Those things have re they've got defense mechanisms the the Yin Yang. I mean if an insect drills into a tree it starts telling the other trees start putting out insecticide. I'm being attacked. They communicate through their roots and share resources with. I mean we don't know Shit and we think that we're we're we're going to manage the whole planet and you say do away. They couldn't be psychic. Give me a break. What do you think that are the biggest threats right now facing the ORCAS orcas facing our oceans while us and you know the oceans are math? Who would have ever imagined that the oceans cover seventy percent of the planet could be so affected by us? It's the same argument that people use now. Humans couldn't possibly be so big that we could affect the weather and climate for Greis insignificant. No I'm sorry. Scientists are now saying this is the anthropoid epoch the time in geological history when when we have become the major force affecting the physical chemical and biological properties of the planet on a geological scale. That's how powerful we become through population technology consumption the global economy so the oceans are a mess. The simple thing is with more carbon dioxide side the atmosphere at the interface of the ocean and air. You get more. Carbon dissolving as carbonic acid and so the Ph of the oceans is dropping shopping and the thing we're finding is that in nature everything is very very fine tune. The temperature of the planet hasn't risen. Listen more than degree and yet all hell is already breaking loose temperature ph of the ocean. Maybe changing by point one And yet already we're seeing that Shellfish are having a hard time getting going. They can't deposit theirself shells. So we're just the exchange in having a huge effect then you realize what the oceans are being are the major storage engine for heat and so this climate deniers love this. They say well in the last ten years temperature in the atmosphere hasn't climbed much. Yeah that's because the oceans are sucking up most listed that heat and water he warms it expands so sea level is going to rise. That means they're all kinds of shoreline impacts of that and of course huge runoff from our unsustainable agricultural practices nitrogen washing into the oceans. There are now dozens and dozens of of dead zones because of eutrophication where life can't exist. They're getting bigger and more numerous numerous in every ocean on the planet and then of course the big thing is the oceans are where all of our crap ends up and you have the plastic everywhere now islands of plastic as big as the state of Texas. So you add all to say that you know we're overfishing and we're using crazy fruit fishing practices like dragging on the ocean bottom. The oceans are a mess. I love how you explained the importance of the elements to the CEO. How do you explain the importance of biodiversity? Do you have a way that you do that to people. Biodiversity is the source of life. First of all first nations people people all over the world talk about the rest of of life as our relatives and we used to kind of say. Oh well that's a nice kind of poetic. Think way of saying well. What genetics has confirmed? Is there absolutely right. Every creature on the planet has has a preponderance of jeans identical. The ones you find the now. Because we're all evolved from the same original cell when you regard the rest of life as your relative surely you treat them with greater respect and care than if we regard them as just the resource or commodity and So I think we we have to embed ourselves in the natural world and realize that we are a part of this very complex community of organisms resumes on whom are survival and wellbeing depends if there were no plans on earth. We wouldn't be here period because of course oxygen is a very reactive compound. The minute there's oxygen reacts it oxidises it rusts things and so there without life life without green things there's no oxygen in the atmosphere and as I told you we get our water because life is what filters that water and the soil the the movie the Martian where Matt Damon is stranded on Mars. But he's only got a year's supply. I have potatoes and he needs to stretch four. There's lots of dust and sand and clay on Mars. Guess what there's no soil because soil is is created by life without life. You got no nothing to grow life on rice life. Let's do. The math are service mission here was supposed to last thirty one souls for redundancy. They sixty eight soul's worth of food that's for six people so for me that's going to last three hundred souls which I figure I can stretch to four hundred rations. So I've got to figure out a way to grow three years worth of food on a planet where nothing grows. Luckily.

"They don't be so overly dramatic about it. Chuck what you're saying. It's a falsehood. And they're giving Sean Spicer. Press Secretary gave alternative attorney facts to that but the point alternative alternative facts for the five facts. He uttered wondering about Russia's Zeke Miller for the five facts he uttered. We're just not true look. Alternative facts are not facts their falsehoods. There's the question that I'm just dying to ask you as a lifelong educator. How are you dealing with this world of alternative facts? I'm crushed. I'm absolutely crushed. I began my career in television in nineteen sixty to sixty two. I did my first aid. Part Abe part series on genetics and I started I was a hotshot scientist man. I was GONNA make my reputation in genetics and I realized when I came back to Canada. How scientifically illiterate illiterate? The average person was and I felt. How can you make big decisions on your life if you're not scientifically literate? You know the most powerful factors shaping our lives today science science when applied by industry medicine in the military and so I began this. I accepted this. This invitation to do television program never imagining it would become a full time occupation. Because I felt that with the better header more and better information people will make better decisions. and that's been the thrust of all of my career in the electronic media provide people with the best scientific information possible before they start making important decisions and you know that it was radically affected that faith in information and decisions when I began to see with the enormous armus access the information through the Internet now people would just the cellphone and have access to virtually every book ever written. It's amazing using the access to information. And what I discovered was it doesn't work that way because now people are are are illiterate and how to use information and what people do is they dig through the pile of stuff available till they find something that confirms what they already believe. You ought to believe that God created the earth in six days held. There are hundreds of websites telling you that you want to believe in pyramid power or Bermuda. Triangles or that climate change is a hoax. There are dozens dozens of websites. And so what I find now is people. Don't bother trying to get information to really inform themselves. They look for information they can cherry pick the just proves what they already believe. And that's a horrifying situation so that I realized now that you have to also have an audience that is literate and understands that you have to assess the information nations. Who is giving this? WHO's paying for this information? People have to be much more responsible in how they select information but but if we live in a world of alternate truth then then we really have entered an Orwellian world of nineteen nineteen eighty-four where you can tell people literally two plus two equals five and people will believe it and we're at that point now we're GONNA launch an investigation to find out and then the next time and I will say this of those votes cast none of them come to me. None of them come to make I mean you only you have to look at the trump. The trump use of a facts. Thousands of thousands of Muslims cheered cheered when on nine eleven. There's absolutely no evidence of that happening. Millions of people voted. That we're illegal absolutely absolutely no evidence but repeat ally over and over again. And that's why I was stunned when right here in Canada you have Christy Clark saying oh the. MVP hacked into our hacked into our our website our whatever wherever they hide their stuff and and then not only made this very serious allegation but then continued to churn the same thing out now until after a week that she finally had to say I was wrong. I'm sorry but I mean I'm shocked that she was applying exactly the kind of tactics that trump rumpus done. And is this the kind of world that we've come to. It's it's a very very distressing time. I've found it's really thrown me as a writer. I don't yeah well. I've always written with the to persuade people that have. I put out the right evidence that that it will change people's minds open their minds and it's horrifying to me. I can't remember the exact quote from Brexit but one of the Anti Brexit candidates won't we've had enough of the experts like how did experts become become a pejorative. Exactly the word elite. Now you know what's her name. This medical doctor. That's running for the Conservatives Kelly Leach each throws out the word elite. Well why is it. We revel in elite athletes elite musicians. I would hope elite scholars and yet somehow the word elite has become a pejorative. It doesn't make any sense to me. And when elite information information from mm-hmm elite people means experts. We're really in a pretty sad state. The fact that a medical doctor is distancing. Dancing herself from smart. People is just kind of stunning. I've got sixty Anita. Let us after the name but don't call smart because smart means I can't get elected. Did someone once said well dumb people have to be re representatives. Is there anything you've thought of that we can do to cut through the noise. Well Elliott's it's very very difficult the way that I've approached it. Now you know I've been battling with the CEOS and company company presidents and all kinds of people in before I go into battle all often be told. Look he's a really decent guy goes to church. Every Sunday loves his kids. Take them. Camping loves nature. You know. He's a good person and it's true these people I meet. They're not evil monsters but the problem is they play within their sphere. Whether it's politics economics religion they play within his fear. It is constrained by the basic ground rules of that sphere so three years ago I got a call from President or CEO of one of the largest companies in the Tar Sands Alberta surprise. Can I come and talk to you. I said sure I'm I'm not into fighting. I don't see the point in fighting. Come down next day showed up at our door here and I said thank you for coming. I'm honored and Blah Blah Blah. I said but before you come through this door. Want you to do me one favor I want you to leave your identity as CEO of an oil company outside. I I said I want you to come in and and talk man to man human being to human being because quite frankly I don't see the point of even talking if we don't begin begin from a platform of agreement I mean if we don't have a fundamental foundation of agreement them were all over the bloody map well. He wasn't very happy because he'd come down as a CEO of an oil company. Somehow to talk to me but days credit he came through the door so I sat him down. I I said look. I know this is not what you expected but let me explain where I'm coming from. I said we live in a world that is shaped and constrained by laws ause nature. And there's nothing we can do about that. We have to live within those laws said physics informs that you can build a rocket that will travel faster the speed of light. That's the limit. And we accept that the law of gravity. If you trip on Iraq you're GONNA fall on your face. That's gravity. I the second laws of thermodynamics. I mix being. You can't build a perpetual motion machine and only science fiction writers will tell you about not falling within those laws. Those are laws dictated dictated to us by the way. The universe is constructed chemistry. It's the same. The atomic properties of the elements determined melting points and boiling points and all of the properties of atoms. That will tell you which one you can react. And what kind of molecules are you gonNa make diffusion constants reaction rates. All of that dictates what we can or can do and we live with that biology. It's the same. Every species has a maximum number that can be sustained indefinitely that's dictated by The carrying capacity of an ecosystem or or habitat exceed that number and your population. We'll crash humans are like rats are different different. We're not confined to specific habitat but the biosphere is the zone where we occupy the biospheres fixed. A can't grow grow and there are limits to how many humans can be sustained indefinitely. It's a function of number and consumption per person and I said you know the most profound thing biology tells us is you and I. We're animals and as animals that determines what are fundamental. The metal needs are said. What do you think the most important thing all human beings need and instead of giving me the answer like any childhood he went well and I could Aziz thinking money job I said Mr CEO? If you don't have air for three minutes you're dead if you have to breathe polluted air. You're sick so wouldn't you agree. The highest.

"And he's happy staying fifteen thousand dollars a month in revenues and losing money every single month because he is learning so much from these experiments and once he's got it totally dialed then he's GonNa take his half million dollars in cash reserves and dump it into whichever channel or whichever strategy it is that's going to get him the most efficient and defective growth and then he's GonNa start making money so that's an example of how somebody that's almost a pre revenue startup can use a cost of growth announce assists to really educate what they're doing so that they're spending their precious capital in the most effective way well that sounds to me like the kind of task that a marketing division should be doing so the marketing division typically looks at the first half of the equation your customer acquisition cost and they'll say okay great i WanNa get you customers for as cheap as possible and on the surface that seems like a very reasonable goal right if you can spend as little to get customers then you get a higher Roi when the customers actually spend you don't have to recover as much in that expense but the issue there is sometimes the easiest customers to get have the shortest lifetimes or the smallest basket sizes or aren't going to give you good referrals and so if you get a cheap customer it's not necessarily GonNa pay out the best for you in the long run so this is why you need the full view of all AH proportionally higher lifetime value in the ad will when you come into a business does that threaten the mark getting department good question so it depends typically marketing teams aren't looking at the lifetime value side of things anyways and they don't want to look at the lifetime value side of things they're mostly care about getting new customers in the door and so to the extent that we can empower them by telling their manager their business owner hey these three channels are very effective for your marketing team to go after and we encourage you to increase their budget to do that then the marketing teams like us for that and the fact that we can tell guide them like hey these three are not effective for you we recommend pulling it back they're happy because we can get them better metrics for that so to the extent that you have to get alignment in the a full management team for what you're doing it's the same issue in the marketing department that's valuable that's that's very valuable so how do how do you go about finding companies that invite you in yeah so nowadays we actually don't really have to find anybody they're mostly finding us we get a lot of referrals get a lot of inbound traffic over the Internet and typically the companies were looking at our companies that you're working with to write their small businesses that are looking to grow and maybe they've hit a limit that they're having trouble getting over maybe they've just closed a fresh round of investor capital and they WANNA make sure that they deploy that fresh capital in a really smart and effective way or you know maybe they've just been coasting for several decades and enjoying the lifestyle business but they realize that just need to change because their market is shrinking or their markets shifting or they WANNA sell the business and it's not worth anything if it's a stagnant business so those people I usually come find us and they say you know I need help budgeting this growth I'm not sure if I have enough money to invest in the salesforce I'm not sure if have enough money to pivot into this new market I'm not sure how to plan this right one can I hire people and those are all questions if you're asking yourself that you probably need a cost of gross analysis worked into your budget and your forecast so I'm curious about how much what kind aimed of of of time does a leadership team need to invest what kind of resources in you know if you can help us understand what kind of cost is going to be here yeah yeah no those are all great questions okay so like so many things right like you kind of get what you put into it we can crunch numbers all day lawn but ultimately we need you as the business owner's expertise and your management teams expertise in how the business functions so that we can build the models correctly so typical project would look like US having a kickoff meeting to learn about the basis of your business reviewer historical financials and then understand what data systems you work with maybe you've got an earpiece system maybe you've got a different inventory system maybe you're entirely online on cloud based integrated platforms that all dump into a central database somewhere so we understand what that is we go mining through the data and then we try to make sense out of it that whole project of making the sense of the data building the model talking the team about it talking to the management coming back model and talking to management coming back usually takes about two to three weeks and we'll finish that two to three week cycle and present the just we share the information it's good to know and you know the team takes that and moves forward on their own sometimes it's this is really good and it's changing so we need to keep updating this on a monthly basis so then we'll continue to maintain that model once a month have a meeting and talk to people about it and sometimes the answer is hey that this is radically different than how we've seen the world in the past and because it's radically different and because it's innovative and useful we need to update our forecast dude this we need to update our budget to include this we need to update some KPI's or some other tools that marketing are using so that we have good visibility of this as we continue to move forward and so then that rolls into other projects where we assist with that now generally speaking you know the price the cost to the customer is going to depend on the complexity of the customer we've done this for as low as twenty five hundred dollars for some of our smaller startup clients we've done it for as high as ten to fifteen thousand allies for larger more complicated clients so it just depends good good in the value that they get from this would be a a mini multiple of off the of the cost yeah if you figure if you're spending ten thousand dollars a month on either sales people or on marketing budgets than this is a fraction of that there's like an insurance policy eh I how much time does like a seventeen million dollar company need to spend accumulating the data for you in terms of gathering the data or in terms of yeah so we we try to sports for some random consultants so typically what we try to do is get online on your systems so that we can pull the data and we can manipulate it and we've been talking about here today I want to see these metrics these cost of growth metrics customer acquisition cost customer lifetime value are you and the details behind them broken out in a statement that is published monthly with every company's financials including in the public happened three years but I would love to see some serious momentum some good traction out there with the finance and the marketing communities embracing this idea that we need some.

Jason Zucchini welcome Eljay thank you L. Nice to be here so also little bit about your Your Company in your CFO share in in in Colorado Yep so cfo share we believe that small bits businesses deserve professional financial strategy so we are an outsourced finance and accounting department available on a part time basis for small but businesses that means every role that you'd have at a corporate finance and accounting department from bookkeeping all the way up to cfo work we have in our group available our customers to help them grow well so What kind of companies do you work with talk me literature ideal Yeah so we've worked with all kinds of small businesses from pre revenue startups all the way up to fifty million dollar manufacturing co companies that are private equity owned part of rolled up conglomerate a really my favorite customer to work with is closely held small business maybe somewhere between two million dollars in revenue and fifteen million dollars in revenue who's looking to grow who's looking to pivot or who's thinking about making a change maybe an ownership changing their business and that's really when there's a fair amount of risk and uncertainty and when having a financial expert on hand can really help you mitigate that type of risk and so now is your work done face to face or is generally done remotely yeah good question so we are here in Denver Colorado we have quite a few customers here in Denver that I like to meet face to face however we work nationwide and so the majority of our customers we work entirely remotely now I get it around the country here and there and I'll stop and visit people to say hi because I like to meet people in person but we do have some customers that we've never met with before we just you videoconferences talk on the phone Indian Southern California actually have quite a few in southern California so I'll give you a call the next time I'm down there Super London love to see you so you've got this interesting concept about analyzing the cost of growth so let me set this up for you as an implementer I work with lots of companies in in every one of them wants to grow I mean that's part of why the get involved with the entrepreneur operating system is is they've been hitting the ceiling something's going on that they're not getting what they want from their business and so there looking for assistance we give them the system and they're always looking to grow so when we look at what's your fifteen year twenty year twenty five year target it is generally a multiple of where they are right now in so we're continually looking at how much revenue they got at the end of the year that's one goal the second goal is kind of profit and we get in in in so that whole idea of profit I suppose from a fan family ownership prophet might be how much money did we were we able to sock away into the bank but from from a company that wants to grow they're always is investing that Prophet in the company in an you know help help leadership teams to recognize that their profit is really before they make all of those investments when what I'm hearing from you is that there are tools to be used to help people decide where they wanna make their investments what they can expect from returns on investments at right correct correct and in the finance world we've talked about return on investment before or when it comes to a financial investment so we think about it when purchasing stocks for example for our own personal retirement accounts what's the return on investment and in the business world will think about what's the return on investment for purchasing machinery or purchasing a new warehouse or something like that but I want people to start thinking about what's the return on investment from hiring a salesperson what's the return on investment from purchasing a google pay per click advertising campaign was th- return on investment from updating the SEO on my website and in the past marketers might of told us well it's impossible measure this are y are sales people would have told you well you just look at the revenue that I bring in greater than my salary than you're doing well and we've come up with some more sophisticated ways to do that that I would challenge entrepreneurs is to start thinking about okay this is something that once you figure out how to calculate the SRY you can start building it into your forecast you can start building and is your budget and you could say hey we're going to grow our revenue twenty percent this year although we're expecting our profits to go down because we're making these investments but we know these investments the payoff because we've done the math on it so this is a concept that has been pioneered originally buy the software is a service industry and they started looking at it in a very basic way through what they call the golden ratio you can google the golden ratio and you'll see it's the ratio of customer lifetime value to customer acquisition and cost of customer acquisition cost is fairly well known in fairly well managed? It's it's something that if you hire a marketing team to do your advertising enter your social media they will probably be measuring themselves on that on that metric and that is basically your total sales advertising marketing expense divided by the number of new customers that you got during that period that was the cost for you to acquire one customer great so that's the cost of the machinery that you're buying to grow your business but what's the Roi that you're going to get on that machinery that's where the other piece of the.
Jerry Jones talked the talk. But Ezekiel Elliott knew Cowboys owner would pay up
"Begin begins today with jerry jones closing in on a deal with ezekiel elliott as he said he would elliott has flown back from parts unknown and jones's put the money on the table. The dealers is reported to be somewhere in the neighborhood of ninety million dollars for six years which is a pretty nice neighborhood frank. Did the cowboys do the right thing by showing zeke the money yeah well. We know how it works tony. It's all about the guaranteed money so right now. If it's six years of actually being eight year contract because we being extension still has two years left. I think jerry jones and i think is equal. It all knew that he was going to be backed by week one. I think this whole thing all along him going to mexico wherever he was working out. He knew that he would be back. I think he's our most important offensive player and to the point point. Jerry jones is desperate desperate to win the super bowl and he thinks he needs ezekiel elliott and he didn't wanna missing one game so i'm gonna push back gently because they need suzuki and this had to be done. I'm not sure they need ezekiel elliott right now. This has nothing to do with money. In my mind i think they open with the giants the better team than the giants and the redskins. They're a better team than the redskins. I think what went on in jerry's mine is the specter of emmett smith when they went oh and two and he had to publicly sort of eat crow and go and give him the money now. I think you always want ezekiel elliott and to your point. He is their offense. This is not the kid from san diego dago melvin gordon yeah. They don't really need like you put dak prescott out there without zeke elliott and they don't really have a great offense. I'm just i'm just suggesting that it could have been because they're gonna. They're gonna give him the ball so much that he could get hurt. I could they wait for you. Want load management then in the n._f._l. N._f._l. I want him to make sure if i'm trying to win the super bowl. I wanna make sure i understand there's sixteen games before you get to the price. You're my lead guy but you're bringing being up. Emmett smith and emmett smith played with more battle-tested quarterback number one. Yes a better team. They went on to win the super bowl. This team has a long way to go before they can do that. I guess it's it's too important. You know the gauging your talk just chunking up saying they're they're guaranteed win. I don't i don't but that's how that's what jerry jones said. Maybe we'll get him back in a week. We need them in time for the playoffs. Yes you sure you're gonna make. I'm not saying i would wait till the playoffs. That's what he well. He made it sound like we don't need in the first few weeks. We'll play that is public. Posturing that jerry does very very well but the money's money's on the table

The nets actually schooled in two separate innings. Homerun Suzuki another homerun Kendrick in the first the only major leaguer on that team. The best hitter that Kelly Kendrick anatomy, not says, I was Adam Eaton. That's right. They're the best hitters on the team right now. And they are not scary hitters. They're just the best hitters on the team. Howie kendrick. You can't give them a day off. I don't carries. Fifty. You have to have him in the lineup. He's got to play first or third where we wanna play him. He's gotta play. He's got a play. He's got play. They are the bullpen failed. Again. The bullpen gave up touring runs in two innings. The bullpen yori. I believe is over seven. It's the worst in the major leagues Carter Kibe Uhm him. He doesn't comfortable short. It would be better. I'm just suggesting greater like. Yeah. He's not any major league right now. He will be he's not a major league right now. About what? At short put dosier back. It's he's all about trickle down effect. So he looks uncomfortable in the field this started because he can't get a hit. He looks uncomfortable at the plate. And you wonder how does this affect him because he were gonna use him later in the season. The idea was bringing bringing them up letting him split time at second with those. And now this could be the type of thing that affects him for one or two more sees this is what f p said during the game last night. He referenced himself in the minor leagues when he made a bunch of errors. And he said, I I was I was lost. I had no confidence. I had a guy. Go out there day after day after day and hit me one hundred balls short. So I I could get my confidence back. He said the only way and maybe he's right? The only way you overcome this is with hard work. He was very clear in saying of Carter key, boom. Got that. Right. Yes. Now he did. He could get lost right now. He can get lost in his head. Right. This is not F P F P this year. Sure is actually critical for the first time in I don't know. Ten years or something to be sunny skies with this team right now, they look like the Titanic. Right.

You gotta give me something he says. Well, I guess it's the bullpen. And I said it's the bullpen is pitch. And he goes pretty much whenever they throw the ball. It's getting wizards like saying in casual fan, it is getting wizards like terrible. The hitting Tara, and you're squandering a top three starting staff.

"Last season he was wondering if maybe they have made the right choice, and whether they should have kept Andrea known a over Alex rinse for this season. But obviously, Alex rains has looked very very good in winter testing. And Chris is thinking maybe maybe they knew what they were doing after all now, obviously Alec's rinse has stepped up his game big time. And that's a very exciting thing. I cannot wait to see what he does this season. And it didn't just. Start in winter testing, keep that in mind, he really got things going in the last five or six races of two thousand eighteen and that's just carried over from the second half last year into this year. And at the same time, you've got Andrea known a on the other side, he's drifted off into his never Neverland mentality on the apprecia-. But if I'm being very honest, I do see where you're coming from Chris because there were a couple of interesting races that you know, they had at the end of the year. And I am curious how things would have gone had Suzuki. Maybe just kept everything the same, you know? And if Andrea had stayed for two thousand nineteen I'm just I can't picture how it would work out because by leaving and being forced to ride that apprecia- he's in a very grass is greener mode right now where he's thinking about that sukey as a huge huge missed opportunity. But if he never had that experience if he hadn't been banished to apprecia- would. He have that same level of motivation. What he had been that excited about the bike coming into this year. And you know, that one is very very difficult to predict because I'm not exactly certain if he would have appreciated the opportunity to be on that as Ukio nearly as much if there had been no question that he was going to continue on it. You know? So by leaving. I think he realized what he lost. But by staying would he have had that same, you know, feeling toward the bike? I don't know. And I'm also not sure if Andrea is going to realize until it's too late that his enthusiasm level and his effort right now in a less than perfect situation with apprecia- is the key to sticking around longer in the premier class. Maybe even moving back up to a better bike. I'm not sure I think that he likes to live a little bit too much in the past and not realize what is happening in the moment right now. And we saw that when he left do Coty. There was a little bit about. A blood there, especially with Andre David CO. So and he spent time commenting on him being focused on how do Qadi was making a mistake by letting him go instead of being focused on the task at hand. Which is let's go to Suzuki and show them that they made the wrong decision. And then he repeated that process when he left Suzuki when he found out he was not going to be with Suzuki anymore and the first year he was kind of down on the bike, and forgive reason..

"As well as Alex fringe just simply having an abysmal start to the season or else he would compete for a top four spot as well, but they did perform some, and I think that balances out their general inability to win races and the confusion that cover the entire season. So when you take the awfulness and the high of the win put them together, you get to see. So that's what I'm giving him in as you'll see in a second. We get to the riders. I wasn't nearly as harsh on the riders as I was on Yamaha's a whole. That's why the some of those parts don't quite add up to as much as you'd think they would. And that's why the right in the middle. But we're Yamaha's great didn't really add up to what you might have thought. Based on the numbers. The opposite was true for the factory Suzuki squad. Yeah. Andrea known a was a complete wildcard every time out. I mean, he had some solid braces early on then that inflated Zego and his consistency. Went out the window. And then his frustration that being banished to apprecia- showed up in like he was terrible at the end of the year. But as you know, only stumbled through his season up in having ups and downs. Alex Rennes right about the middle of the year took off like a rocket. And by the end of the year. He forced all of us to consider. That's Zouqi had indeed build a bike. That was very. Very very close to being able to compete for motor JP victories. And it wasn't just rinse either. I mean, yeah, you donate was all over the map. But when he had good races. They were very very good racist. So even those kind of reinforced that Alex Rennes late-season success wasn't purely a fluke, and it was an incredible effort. I think on the part of Suzuki to bounce back from earlier in the season. But from two thousand seventeen I mean, it was a debacle in two thousand seventeen the team messed up the riders messed up. Nothing went right. And then now at the end of two thousand eighteen they had a rider who was fifth in the championship and would have been higher had they gotten everything squared away and eat avoid mistakes earlier in the year. So I think Suzuki did a phenomenal job and because of that easy one to give them an A fifth in the championship was primarily Coty. And you'll primary was weird this season Danilo pitching, Jack Miller combined for a grand total of one podium and seven top five finishes. But. Between two good riders one of which was on a current year. Do khadi and all of their top five finishes were in and done by the red bull boring nothing after that. But despite those scant numbers, they were still the highest finishing satellite team in the paddock. And I don't think many people would necessarily cues them of being slow. It's just that. It was hard to explain, you know, I'm tempted to give them a b overall because they did finish fifth in the standings and higher than any other satellites he Mets impressive. But at the same time, I don't think they were able to net the results that they should add. And most importantly, the GP nineteen got markedly better in the hands of Lorenzo and Dovy as the season went on and had Lorenzo knockout in hurt. I think that would have continued for him as well. But while the factory riders were getting better, pray MAC wasn't able to replicate that wave of results within Ella Pacheco and because of that and because they had a good year in the standings..

"The two to Suzuki swung and Mitch. They are flailing away against this twenty four year old young. They are begging to stand up and do that Tomahawk chop that. They did during the pre-game introductions. They got it. They're sitting on those foam, but Miller is just too good right now. He's just over matching them with fastballs in the strike zone that they can't make contact with. Housi- Albee's twenty one year old all star second baseman one for seven in the series. Switch hitter. So obviously, the left hand side of the plate the doctors. Play. Shift him, just so smart. They know what they're doing on the infield. As far as the percentages. Tell you were a ground ball will be. But what I love, right? There was immediately. Dave Robertson is coaching staff moved the outfield back as deep as they can this is like no doubles no-ball should hit over your head right now because they know with two outs. They wanna keep that run from scoring. They wanna keep the baseball in front of them. Marquette is the runner at first to our one pitch on the way breaking ball a little bit, different shifts.

"Paxton just riding it out right out. He's supposedly supposed to be back in the next end as yeah, so she should be back in time. Like I said, either that he's series or the Texas one, he's he's a matchup proof guy just going to start in there. So it's unfortunate, but that's where we're at with Paxton. All right. Let's dive into our main topic here and we're gonna talk about these final couple of weeks. I think just and you said you can't feel any shame and cutting guys at this time of year because you just have to make tough decisions and you can't just go off of the long track record. You do have to get a little bit more short sample focus. So I wanna talk about some new studs versus some establish duds. Basically, we're looking at a second half performances here of guys at each position. Lor unexpected guys who are surging versus the established guys that you rely on who aren't coming coming together with their performance. So we'll get some WRC plus numbers as the jump off point, and I'll give you guys some stats on what they're doing this year. Let's start behind the dish catcher. And we have Kurt Suzuki versus Wilson. Contrary Kurt Suzuki for the season for the second half has won twelve WRC plus not crazy, but it's well higher than Wilson controllers seventy two Mark. And then if you look at just over the last thirty days, the split becomes even more devastating. One ninety three to sixty five Zukis on one and Wilson chairs cannot get anything going. He doesn't have a single home run in eighty four point appearances. Nine runs nine ribs. Whereas in fifty, seven plate appearances Zouqi has four homers seven runs ten rubies he is splitting time, but he's making the most of it when he does hit. So Justin where you're going to go between Suzuki traders coming down the stretch here. It's it's Suzuki and I don't think it's particularly close. I mean if you look at Wilson what he's done since August I he has one home run since August. I and it was on August. I wow. In that time he has. Thirty seven swing percentage. He's only making contact sixty eight percent of the time. It's not usually good conduct. There's nothing in this profile that nine homers on the year, jeez, sorry to interrupt you, but that's crazy. Yeah, he feels this feels like a situation that if there we were in may or June, and he was doing this that he gets sent down and I don't think the cubs right now can just do that to, you know, send him out somewhere to work on stuff, but he definitely needs to rework something because it's obviously not working. I think, yeah, I think you have to drop him in pick up a guy like Kirk Zouqi, Jason, you feel the same with control versus Kurt Suzuki. It's weird looking at contrary, because if you look like. If you look across like he's still getting on base in the exact same time of the power, something obviously not right for just for this, something's not right. We don't know what it is something right conversely with with Suzuki. My concern at thirty five. He's definitely displaying the old man skills at this point. A lot of fly balls. A lot of his poll percentage gone up three straight seasons now, these percents. Yeah, he's on forty five forty one forty five forty nine fifty three. And then as his fly ball ground ball, one, three one one one zero one zero eight and zero eight again. And so we're to the old man skills again and there's more risk associated with that. Continuing at his age. I do like that. He doesn't play every day doesn't have to. He plays in the plays in the match ups that are advantages to him and as always ready. Let's not forget. He platoons with another right handed bat tower fireworks. So as a matter of which which. Type of pitcher is he the guy, the faces, the power guys, Vanessa guys, the guys at work up in the zone, the guys that work down zone clearly land has something that they've been able to find with him and and get the safe Dessaint players, Suzuki. The higher upside is going to be contrast to me boy. Eating pumpkin pie scream boy just brought me so sorry. All right. Let's move over to first base. This was the only one where where the established died does have an WRC plus over one hundred just because his peak areas and some of the more dud guys that were at the very bottom just they wouldn't be any competition for talent white..
