Seattle police clear 'occupied' area, make arrests
"Police in Seattle spent weeks responding to protest with patients. During the height of the George Floyd protests. People took over a small part of the city. They call that the Capitol Hill organized protest or chop. They called for changes in policing and the local police gave them space until the mood soured, and police moved in yesterday, NPR's Martin case reports from Seattle. The chops started when police here made a tactical decision to abandon the local precinct building in the face of huge nightly protests three weeks ago, But early yesterday morning they were back and enforce. Everybody was ordered to leave the streets and park. Those who didn't were arrested, where, by 10 a.m. The remaining protesters have been pushed to a perimeter, closely guarded by police returns, is one of the elder statesman of the shop. A man with a little force and little force came back to him. But we already Bay history. The city came in with more than just cops. They brought in social services for the homeless people who joined the camp as well as heavy machinery to remove the barriers, tents and other debris from the streets and the adjoining park. They say they'll have to keep the area off limits to non residents for 10 days as crews assess damage and clean things up. I was just done by the amount of graffiti, garbage and property destruction. That's the police chief Carmen Best. Weeks ago, she said that abandoning the precinct was not her decision. And now she seems gratified that the police are back. If anybody wants to protest and do so peacefully and exercise their right, we certainly encouraged that. What we can't have that we saw there where people were entrenched where crimes and lawlessness were occurring where people were being assaulted. Rape robbery on as you know, two murders. It was those murders, part of a recent rash of shooting incidents in and around the chopped that seemed to have pushed the city tow Act. The defenders of the chops say they're not to blame for those shootings was all gang violence. Every single shooting was gang related. This is James Madison, or at least that's the name he goes by here. He's well known as having been part of chops, Volunteer security effort, a photo of him holding a semiautomatic rifle of the entrance. The chop was picked up by websites around the world. But yesterday he was ambling around the new perimeter, making small talk with the police and lamenting the difficulty that he and his colleagues had had keeping this neighborhood safe. So towards the end when the shooting started to happen. At that point, we decided we're gonna start pulling out because he saw what we refer to as a power vacuum that power vacuum has also felt by some local business owners. They sued the city last week, accusing it of abandoning them. Residents also felt the strain to hear Has Ebola and his wife have an apartment inside the chop, he says. While he supports the protester's aims, Toward the end, he started to feel as if he was being held hostage. We were watching fights happen almost everyday daily. So like I was jockeying for position and giving orders and authority and somebody's waving a gun and saying I'm in charge of some gestures of with the band says No. I'm in charge and give us a taste of what being a lawless World would look like even some of the most dedicated supporters of the protest here have come around to the idea that the occupation camping out was a mistake. Asia Morgan is a young African American woman from Tacoma. I'm a believer that if we are going to protest, we should keep it moving, be like water. Guerrilla warfare. This isn't this isn't something that you just sit and fight like this is a constant battle, and city officials say they welcome that the police chief repeated her support for lawful protests and a continuing conversation about reimagining police. Well, the mayor said she's already planning to cut tens of millions of dollars from the Police Department budget.

Marcus out of the closet and into your podcast feeds once again speaking to you from my guest room closet revisiting the making gay history archive as a coping mechanism in the Cova crisis. I hope these trips to the archive. Help you a little. They helped me a lot here on West Twentieth Street. In New York City. Things have been slowly opening up the Jihad place on the corner. The French pastry shop across the street and soon our favorite restaurant down the block but normal not even close noisy traffic and streams of chattering tourists on the way to the high line park have been replaced by chattering. Birds Looking for mates or just hanging out the city that never sleeps is a surprisingly sleepy place to live at least in my neighborhood where many people have fled to second homes or other parts of the country so this is the Tenth Week that my partner. Barney and I have been sheltering in place here in the US at least nine hundred thousand or dead more than a million and a half infected along with a cold statistics. There's been much discussion about how this pandemic is the great equalizer that no matter who you or the size of your bank account. You're not protected from this virus. It's true that viruses don't discriminate but our society does and this virus has cast in stark terms how systemic inequality the termines. How likely you are to get sick and if you get sick how likely you are to die and that brings me to Perry Watkins. Another of the many people I interviewed who is just trying to live his life when fate and in Perry's case racism cast him in a very different role one that could easily have landed him. Six feet under Perry Watkins was Nineteen Year Old American college student living in Germany and studying dance when his draft number was called. It was thousand nine sixty eight. The war in Vietnam was at its peak. But Harry figure that after a quick trip to the army's induction center in Tacoma Washington he'd be back in Europe doing what he loved. He thought he had nothing to worry about. Because the military didn't want homosexuals and Perry made no secret of the fact he was gay in life or on the army's intake form that he had to fill out turns out he plenty to worry about. So here's the scene. It was mid November nineteen eighty nine and I was sitting in Perez semi dark living room in Tacoma Washington. It was too cold to take my coat off. Perry was bundled up to and explained that he couldn't afford to heat. The House. Perry was a handsome man with close cropped. Hair a beard and abroad smile.

November nineteenth nineteen thousand nine five thirty PM at the home of Perry Watkins in Tacoma Washington. Interviewer is Eric. Marcus tape one side one. I want to go back in history. How's that we're working our way back? Honey asks granted good very this is this is. This is kind of interview. I love talking to a lot of people the most torture to me is. When I ask a question you know. You don't think I'm going to get those kinds of answers okay Did you know you wanted to work in the military? I didn't want to check the box because I wanted to go in the military. You didn't weren't you know that's why I checked the box? If I wasn't planning to go into the most I check the box. Yes and I was drafted anyway. You check the box. That said homosexuality. Would you like to see a copy of the former leave you? I think you checked with the sexual. Yes you were drafted. Yes would you you draft nineteen sixty eight Vietnam War. Good thinking I would school yes. I'm not that Oh so we shopped. Yes what's absolutely? How did someone tell me the chronology of this you you you wit? You've got your shit. There's this thing to look everybody's as what you didn't realize that most people don't realize I was not trying to go into the military. That's why I told them I was. That's why I find it absolutely ludicrous. That the army is in court saying we don't want this man. Well why the Hell did you take me right so you you know? Excuse me and why am I the one that is being accused of being at fault? It is amazing but no I check the block yes. They sent me into a psychiatrist. Who said to me baited me? It was funny and I knew what he was doing. He came in and he says why. Did you check the blocks and I went because you asked me to fill the format honestly well. Did you object to going in the military? No I didn't want to go in the military whom did right but I certainly had no objection to serving my country. You used to be owns extremely so who I really check. The box was because I thought if I go into the military. I'm not going to hide the fact that I'm good. I know myself well enough to know that so when I get thrown out mom will be angry if I lie. That was why I checked the box. When I put out my mom will be more angry with me for lying that. Why didn't I just tell the Damn truth to begin with so then he said well what you like to do. I said well the same thing you know anyone who was gay likes to do Orlando Sex. Whatever no I mean specifically put this psychiatrist I looked him and said you mean to tell me your license okay. Because you don't what a homosexual does I? He got angry with me. I WanNa know what you like to do. So he made me tell him that I liked and get fucked in the ASS specifically then he turns around and says. Do you ever date women now. Stop and think about that. Do you think this is a man who's just made me say I like to Suck Dick. You're not gonNA ask me. Do I ever sleep with women. Do I ever have sexual intercourse limited over Fuck Women? You know you're going say. Do you ever date women. Well now. What clean do you know who doesn't who said yes? His finding was that I was homosexual but qualified for military service now according to the regulation and this is what I find it amusing because the army's always shooting about our regulations says homosexual can't be in the military you're right you're regulation required. That man make a determination that if I was suitable for military service that I was lying that I am not homosexual. The only way you can put someone in the military who check that box.

How to Manage Support Coverage During Holidays
"Believe that customer support in. Your Business is one of the best things you can invest in if your customers get supported if they get the help they need when they need it at a high level of quality. They will not leave you. They'll rather stay with you then go to a competitor because of support. It's a differentiator. It's a way for you to really stand out and build real royalty. They say all you need a thousand raving customers raving fans to have a successful business. This is a way to tame those thousand customers. Get THEM THROUGH THE DOOR. Give them a great product to serve them properly. But what do you do when it's a holiday? What do you do when People are expected to be off. And I'm talking about your please now. If you're on a global company like we do with people around the world and we serve customers around the world were today could be a holiday for some people and not for others because either. It's a holiday in that country or time zones. You know it's a different day in another part of the world. How do you manage all that? And we've experimented with a lot of different things so I want to share with you. Some things that have worked so one of the first things that you really should do is always give your customers a heads up. Whatever you decide whether it's limited hours with her it's reduced ours or you know you have no support coverage during a certain number of days. We always do that Especially during a big holidays at Christmas and Easter. We customers know. Hey from this day to this day We will not have support will have limited support so keep that in mind. We also make sure we let them know win. Support will be back. The exact time and day So people understand when they should get a response or when they can reach out again and hop on chat and ask them questions and normally. That's what we did with big holidays like Christmas where we say you know from this same thing with new years but this time around with Easter we tried something different because there is a huge influx of new customers because of covert and we wanted to make sure that we can support them and help them out even during holiday. So what we did is we asked our team members over at the support department customer support and we ask them hey. Is Anybody Willing to work during Easter? During these days that we normally off and we offered double time pay so what they would normally get paid for that day they'd get paid double. We also give them the option. Instead of double pay is to take an alternate day off like a free day for themselves at another time. We're not sure how that would come off. You know. We have a team of seven people on support but we put it out there and we got three people saying yes. I'd love to work and earn extra money and I believe to the three. Actually ask for two days not just one To get overtime and this allowed us to have full coverage during the holidays now we need a very clear to our team this is totally optional. And if you don't take this option if you don't take your hand up and say hey I wanNA work During the holidays it's not gonNA be negatively. We just want to try something new and see if this is possible and people put their hand up which was great for our customers right now after. Going through that experiment you know. It's a great win for customers. They got support during holiday for some of our employees that decided to take that shift. You know they got you know extra pay which they really enjoyed but it made us think. Do we want to even make this an option in the future or do you want to actually sort of force our team to take some time off and not feel overworked and it was a real debate? You like do. We really need to work during the holidays and offer the support now realize as our team has grown over the years. The answer to that question has changed not previously were smaller team and we had a smaller number of customers to serve. We were like you know what let's take the time off and let everybody have the time off but now that our team is a little bit bigger and receiving a lot more customers even just having one or two people put their hand up again optionally. It's not like the whole team is working. So it's offering this opportunity for people if they WANNA take it now by making this decision making an optional. We're opening ourselves up to the fact that hey there are going to be some people that don't put their hand up and there'll be times have a holiday. We'll we'll have no coverage and if that's the case then we're GONNA have to communicate that to the team and of course we do this well in advance and we asked for volunteers beforehand and in that case we shift to the decision that we are not offering support. There are other things you can do to make sure your customers are supported. Of course we talk communication learning. That support won't be available during these days to let them know in advance. We let them know via email with him. No by in-app message also put in The welcome message of our Messenger Apple in Tacoma we use on our site but we also during the days that were off. We implement two things to make things easier for customers. We have an bought. It's called a resolution bond and this is built into intercom. You could pay for. It's like an upsell and you can program this bought answer questions.

Best WFH tech tips
"We promised she would be coming back by the end of the week end. It is now the end of the week. Our senior personal tacoma's to Aniston is back with us with her favorite work from home tech. Tips Joanna thanks for being back to be back. Have you been this week? I've been doing well. I heard through the Internet grapevine that you have a specific tip for me today and I'm curious about this. Tell me that's right. Well when we started this project Qatari I created a document and I listed out some of the things that I wanted to cover in terms from working from home like gathered stuff that our readers had been interested in you wrote in the document. How do I clean my gadgets? Not just the phone which I know you had just covered and I thought okay. Maybe we'll get to that. We have a lot of other important things to get to but here we are on week. Six seven thousand or seven thousand depending and I thought this was a very important topic because we have been sitting at our desks now for a number of weeks and we've might be eating lunch at them and we might be eating snacks so it's time to clean you. GotTa get a good micro fiber cloth and some good screen gadget cleaner. If you can't buy that you can make your own. I've made my own. I have a spray bottle. With seventy percent ISOPROPYL alcohol in it. And you want to spray on the microphone cloth and then wipe down all the surfaces on the keyboard specifically because that is one of the dirtiest areas. Make sure that that cloth isn't too wet and never spray directly on the keyboard because the water could get in there or whatever the solution you're using could get in there. I also did this for when preparing to write this tip. I dumped my my keyboard over my laptop keyboard over and I don't want to talk about what fell out of there so do that. Be careful and one thing I should say is that I did a couple of weeks ago. Do a piece on cleaning your phone and I did try to wipe down the phone a lot of times. Like over a hundred. Actually we had over five hundred wipe downs with clorox wipes and the reason I did. This was to see if that would actually damage the screen and turns out it. So you don't really have to worry about clorox wipes on your screens whether it be your phone your laptop or your computer screen perfect That sounds like a great weekend project. Another thing I know I'm going to be doing this. Weekend IS VIDEO CONFERENCING WITH FAMILY. Last week we talked about how to. Zoom Zoom videoconferencing APPS. But we had a lot of people asking. What about skype? So do you have any hidden tricks for skype? Yeah you sort of have to feel bad for skype. They were the one of the first. Yeah they were one of the first. They were one of the first to come to the IPHONE even before facetime. This was like you know they. They'd invented the future they were. They had the future like we were going to have video calling everywhere and then everyone just didn't use skype but turns out a lot of people. Do use skype still at least for business or for talking to people because they just have this on their computers and skype has gotten a lot better over the last few years. It is very easy to choose your background or change your background. You can do that. When you're you've got the window up on a macro. Pc and you see the little video icon if you hover over that icon with your mouse. It will say choose your background and you can go there and you can blur. Your background gives it a Nice Blur or you can upload a new image just like you can zoom. They've added that another thing. I really like about skype. Is They have subtitles. So if you click in that same area you can never go wrong. Yeah I mean. They're not fully accurate but they can be very funny to watch too. But you really do. Get the gist of what people are saying. And it's a it's a nice way especially if you're hard of hearing and you're not following the conversation it's a way to see what what's being said and also actually does a very nice job of highlighting who is talking so it does then the subtitle next to the person who is in the window seems to be talking. You can turn this on by again on the video. Chat Window on the right hand side on a macro. You'll see these. Three little dots horizontal dots. Click on there and it will say turn on. Subtitles are eight one more. We know that you're a big fan of noise cancelling headphones we've talked about that before but we have heard from some of our listeners that they can't work with music blasting even though they really like those headphones so do you have any advice for them to or it's white noise. I personally can work with music on but I have been trying this out and you don't have to go by a special machine you can and there are some really good ones out there for that but you can fire up your spotify or apple music and you can search for white noise and they have a bunch of playlist and albums to my favorite on spotify. You can search coffee shops and for those of US okay. Fine me who misses working in a coffee shop. I used to go rate coffeeshops pretty much every weekend. You can get background noise. It's like a coffee shop and you can also search office and you'll get some nice office sound so if you missed the sounds of paper rustling or just sort of chatter that it. It might really help you the vending machine. I don't know if they have a sound for that. It's actually just made angrily begging it when my thing get stuck which should make one.

Tribal solutions and challenges
"Today. We're GONNA start off in Tacoma County in California. We Have Greg. Sarah's he is the chairman of the Federated Indians of Grayton Ranch Ria he is a tribal member of the Rancho Rio which includes descendants of the southern. Pomo and coast me walk. People are pleasure to have him here and Sarah's welcome thank you terra. Good morning and chairman just want to start off in understand more about what is your tribe is facing and where things currently stand in terms of facing cove in nineteen Well I think as with all tribes are. I thought of my first thought. Is the leader in. The leadership of this tribe is to take care of our tribal citizens How do we ensure their health? How do we continue programs at service? The elders and so forth With of course short with do less revenue At the same time we have a large casino One of the largest in California. We have fifteen hundred nearly fifteen hundred tribal citizens and at the same time we have over two thousand team members that work in the Casino Resort Casino. Close about a month ago And so of course. Revenues dried up. We've been very fortunate. I will have to say we've been able Well with spending money we've been able to take care of our citizens that's far and continue per capsule albeit somewhat reduced or You know pull back lever connector cavs ability to pay for caps. But we've been able to keep our been most of our programs going And we've been. I think very worked very hard. It's been very stressful for me to make sure that the all the team members who've been furloughed Since that time and for the indefinite future will be Will continue to receive their medical benefits. We will continue to. We have a very good plan. A the Chitral Cadillac plan whereby they pay nothing out of their paycheck so while they're furloughed. We continue to do that. We paid their salaries until many I After which we made sure that with the bump in the employment from the federal government to six hundred dollar bump that they will have somewhat close to equitable pay And so we figure with that and the insurance which will go on indefinitely. They're they're covered but it's been really really stressful About how to get monies We Hope Tara that we will get We believe we're GONNA get the employee retention credit Because we kept our employees. We have a hundred employees just in our travel office with our programs and we had to reduce furlough some of them and reduce salaries there We Governor Newsom here in. California has been very good he. We don't have to pay our compact fees. He's weighed compact piece for six months. Which of the Health? And of course we hope to apply for the Stabilization Fund for the tracks. It sure interment. Is there any talk that those funds will have to be paid back eventually the compact fees? No I don't because again The money the the casinos are closed down. And they're not generating any revenue and remember the very good question the compaq fees based on revenue and when there's no revenue that okay and I think the guy. I don't believe the governor's going to ask us to pay them back or if he does It'll be able to do away in a way that it won't break if he's been very good insensitive to our situation but for the time being of course the casinos are generating revenue and a big other question that we have right now. Those of us that are operating casinos. How do we reopen when if and when we do reopen? We're going to have to practice. The you know six feet distancing measure how do you what would you imagine a casino with Slot Machines and card tables? How do you open a large facility? Which is the one we have Where whereby? You have to have people six feet apart all of Asli. Your revenue flow is going to be greatly reduced when you do reopen so again. That is something that I will sit down and talk to the governor about when that time comes. I'm working on a model for how to do that with him. Now but again we have no idea when that limited opening will begin in. This is something in a lot of tribal leaders are thinking about 'em especially because the tribe makes the call whether it's open or not and A lot of tribes have just on their own heeded the call to Bring more awareness. And that's why a lot of them have closed down end so chairman says anything else you WANNA share about dealing with the state to either get funding or aid or assistance needed Often in the past. It's been the story That sometimes there are way too many hurdles when it comes to working with the state having a seat at the table. We've heard a lot of different things too when it comes to fema funding. Where do things stand now? That relationship with the tribe or with the state. Sorry well we were in A. We're in a very good place. We WE HAVE A. We are our particular type we have. I have a good relationship with Governor tribes here thus far have had a good relationship with governor newsom so Again one of the things as I was waiting We didn't want to furlough any of our people until I kept in touch with him until he negotiated with the feds to get that unemployment bump once he got that then for instance we could take care of our furloughed people and quit paying them salaries. We were paying the full salary until we heard that. But that bump so we waited we worked with him for that we also as I said are working with him. have worked with him to For the time being away the contact sees So So far so good I mean given the situation now regarding the opening I will. We will defer to him when it is safe and ready. I know that some smaller tribes others may want to do differently We also have as you indicated or inferred the option of not opening. But we're doing everything we can. And when we do reopen we're already looking into the various devices which To tell people have a fever coming into the casino An all that sort of thing. So we will comply with Whatever he suggests regarding avery opening my tribal I can't of COURSE SPEAK FOR OTHER TRIBES. Serio in chairman when it comes to your tribe are there any reported cases of covert nineteen? No not that I know of We have taken really strict measures to talk to. Our families are traveled families of particularly keeping the elders inside Sheltering in place a lot of things are kind of sad. I mean we were. We have larger organic garden where we were delivering vegetables and so forth to elders Our some of our staff were in. You know we've had to stop even things like that But yet our services are still in place so that if tribal elders have any health issues they are staff in the tribal office are in contact with the families and with the elders. So that if anything comes up There is an infrastructure in place to support our people in the matter of any health issues that arise

"I promise I'm not just contradicting you. For the sake of contradicting this isn't going to happen every single OPEC of my actual theory on Spicy fries and I've thought about this realistically when Fraser Pretty Heavily seasoned to me. It's usually a sign that the fries aren't done well. some actually not a big fan of like highly seasoned fries. It's actually less season the little salts good. That's why mistake fries fan. I know a lot of people don't really like steak rice but the potatoes man and so they'll that worries me on you. Why do you hate the North Carolina courage. I don't. It's it's it's nothing to be done is going to be pissed. It's nothing to do with the teams yet everything to do with spicy fries and I just don't necessarily feel good examples. The TACO Bell Nacho fries right. That's solely exists because Taco bell has a giant warehouse full of crappy potatoes that they have to get rid of and they they do it by saying. Let's just glob these nacho cheese. No one will tell the difference and that's Kinda hokey rights for that reason baked potatoes and I think you know you've got your uh-huh Christian press. Hopefully might be healthy. We'll see you know but if not there's a lot of different ways that this could mix up just like there's a lot of different ways that you can address address a baked potato if nothing else. I fully believe that Becky Sauerbrun is the queen of baked potatoes. That's an interesting take to have their and and also just like the versatility with a big potato right with spicy fried. You're getting by seasoning on a fresh baked potato. It's really what you want to get out of it. Do you want to have like the cheesy Broccoli Baked Baked Potato Chili style potato. Do you want to have the classic. Sour cream and baked potato like the world is your choice theory. You can the world is your baked potato. EIB like you can just bill out it whenever you want there. The next match up to me might be the most interesting one on the schedule that we're looking at right now. This is sky blue at rate. FC mashed potatoes potatoes and gravy versus GNOCCHI. This is a tale of two potato dishes like you almost couldn't get too far. They're on the spectrum so a lot of ways. It's a mood type of thing which says a lot about sky Bluesy mood food but food team aren't they eh exactly so mike going Sunday dinner with the mashed potatoes and gravy area. Are you going to be a little fancy in your pants with Gnocchi. You know shout out to sky blue because I don't want mashed potatoes all the time but when you want them they're not nothing else can substitute. You know it's just that one soft comforting food and you know they're always there. You might not want them all the time but they're there for you so I'm going Sky Blue Right now. I'm looking at my selections chosen. Listen fries and baked potatoes I've. I've risked anything really out there. I'm looking at this going like hard. Greenie potato heavy dishes changes at I'm almost thinking about like what are they eating this week especially. It's easier all in one day so it's like well. I had fries for breakfast so many carbs at a Baker yes. This is turning to real. I'm I so promise you. I'm not trying to contradict you at every piece. I've taken the not on this one the I just I feel like I need a pallet. Cleanser need to try something a little bit different. Let me tell you something. If you get just a solid Turkey as to go with that Nogi Yeah. You're gonNA you know you're GonNa be glad you did so and that's hard because as a solid played a mashed potatoes and gravy. Is there anything you know. Did you hit that. you know there's much beating night then. You need to close encounters thing. you know this is different. This is important. You do the sculptures and there's a lot of stuff but but I'm sticking with no game to go with with rain. I've seen that one. Let's head to the final match up of September twenty. First this is the HOUSTON DASH at the Portland Thorns Tater tots Patine. I ABC feeling I know Mike's GonNa. Do what are you doing. I mean is this even a question. Putin yeah yeah. It's not even know. Are you going. That's no. I'M GONNA be controversial in this take. I don't think anyone really really actually likes tater tots. You have people who say it and they act like Ridley excited leg woo dictatorship thoughts. They will make it like a fun. Remember when you were a kid type of thing and so I think it's tremendous but come on it's the it's the really the lowest form of potato and there may come a case where it sounds sounds good every now and again. They've been decent tater tots high just don't I firmly believe that if people searched in their heart tater tots would be close to the last thing they would ask ask for is better than no potato yes but isn't yeah so yes but mm-hmm yeah and also like man. If you've had good Putin it is. Oh yes unreal but this is another classic case of it kind of depends on what Putin routinely getting that night on the pitch am I getting quality robust slow cooked gravy with with solid cheese. Kurds well spiced Are you giving me package gravy and cheese WHIZ. You know if you're coming to the pitch with that no but I feel like we're gonNA come strong with really solid base. soluble tea to close out the twenty first closed the night want to bring this into the real world finding who team for sale at Providence Park wouldn't surprise me that much no at least food truck somewhere yeah true yeah. There's gotTa be a we actually had a in we had any team tracks the college the college that might enable both lived in for a while while there was a Putin truck that was going around and it was called the gravy train and that just happy that that was worth it so so that's everything for the twenty-first twenty first. Let's head now. Wednesday the twenty fifth we have to at one point. It was just one match now. It's going to be to a first thing. We'd had the spirits dash fries versus. Tater tots Mike Kuti image all about the Washington spirit and their fries yeah again I just not I have it on good authority that rose lavelle big fan of fries yeah and that's a tough place to place to set you know big big on fries and this is one that you know what I'm going to say. They're just GONNA. I think they're going to put a little cheese. He's on those fries and by that I mean this is GonNa be a big win. because fries versus taught so as a big win so you're you're looking at that that very basic six side but it's not even a comparison for sure now to the match that we didn't expect to be on Wednesday the twenty fifth that said heavy rains in Tacoma as we're recording this and of course that may I mean if you're a baked potato or if you're well nobody you don't. WanNa be sitting in the rain do you. I mean that's that's. That's not an enjoyable meal experience if you think about it so I'm glad that they're for the sake. Make of atmosphere at this potato themed restaurant that they're waiting until everything is good stuff but royals rain. FC A baked potato versus Naoki and again. I'm going with the baked potato because look we were supposed to get a week earlier but for the baked potato that just means more time eh to bake to get just nice and soft you know it's it's it's ready to go. Sometimes the the location is going to play a role for me here and if I'm sitting in the Seattle area area I feel like I'm GonNa have an easier time finding a good bowl not that I am finding a solid baked potato. I don't know that you could count out it. Call Seattle like a baked potato sound is are there some at satellite boise combines but I feel like that's something you look forward to like. You could probably very easily find really and so by the way if you're era emerald city dweller and you think them ridiculous and like there's a potato hut somewhere that makes the best baked potato in the world. Please let me know I would love to know that information grip because I'll I'll go to ivers. I'll get some salmon shattered little immediately. Go to potato land and try that out but I I'm GONNA go with with Yogi on this one just yeah that just feels right to me. That's everything for Wednesday the twenty fifth. Let's head to Saturday the twenty eighth. We're down to four for more of these. Matchups might just say no. We got the courage at spirits. This is actually this brother brother sister versus sister sorry this is spicy. Fries versus fries big rivalry. Yeah big time here comes down to how much you like spice away. I'm going with the classic stick to the fundamentals right none none. None of this show off stuff. I mean are the courage fast asked yeah. Are they entertaining yeah but you can't beat the fundamentals of the Washington Spirit fries. I think it's spirit fries. I kind of really liked debt free spear fries. This is actually going to talk about like my feeling and spicy price in general but when it's it's it's put next to fry's this is just kind of like pedaling for maybe tonight's the night that I I take a little bit differently and I think a lot for me. It comes down to again. I'm GONNA Bates The Sun location if this was in North Carolina which is interesting because I want to say if this was in North Carolina. This was more ingrained in the south and it was in that area I might trust the spy spicy frazzled because it's probably got some Tony Sanchez seasoning. You know it's done. It's done fairly well that way. Eh I'm in DC. I'm not sure nearly at something they hold on some with you. I'M GONNA stick with rises well but that's close one this. This might be the most boring matchup on paper but I think it has a lot of weight. This is rose. FC At Ascott Red Stars Baked potato versus hashbrowns. I'm really interested to see where you're gonNA. Take this interesting. What time is being played. This is important see. This is what I did earlier. Earlier roles of see spirit is a Red Sun. Losing rents are set my back yet. That's why I couldn't find it is eight PM Eastern so in Chicago. That would be seven. PM Central Want hashbrowns rounds at seven PM on its face on its face hashbrowns obviously better but are you know is this hashbrowns at at the peak of the day..

The common spelling really the green number yeah so there's a greek myth called leader in the swan which is spelled l. e. so so when i say server so i introduced myself to many people each day and say like lead. I'll be taking care of you and the number one thing. It was like oh like lead in the slot and i'm like no. Do you ever get like okay lisa. Oh my god my official. I think i have a tweet about this but i was like my like official work work greeting hi there lisa just like every email that i've ever gotten like my name is right there. It's right there on those. There's this famous people that are still the same way but <hes> yeah leader l._e._d. The greek ways the most famous leader. There's a country singer named lita ford. That's spelled my way and there's also a wrestler whose wrestling name is just leader googled alita and the first thing that came up with lita wrestler yeah leave demoss us rita christine dumas christine demoss better known as the reign lita issue related alexandre dumas's another leader no as as as you are the one of the top three triple jumpers and we are one of the top the american indoor air pockets. I believe i am the top three. Most famous lead us on twitter. I mean i think clearly. I don't think this lead accounts. It's not her real name. So that's one down okay so then i'm number two lita ford is definitely the most famous and she let me tell you she occupies all of the first page of the results so the ford nowhere to be seen here yeah. I'm on the third page. I still haven't seen any it's all w._w._e. Lee is she spelled the same way yeah all right there she is. She is on the same page yeah. I don't think i'm really ever going to come. Come up on this but i think i am the most. I am the the third on twitter. Maybe there should be a way to check when you google taryn. There's there is a gun company named taryn tactical and that is apparently the first thing that comes up now and glucose. You'll turn oh that's that's fabulous. Oh i just put leader into twitter and for people the third one there you go there you go. I'm before lead afford but that's might be catered to me. Which should i be anyway. The vegan rest. I mean the the wrestler litas also being so the about the name and so is the person who owns the twitter handle lead. A tweets russa's what i wanted to tweets way more followers than me the terry third on page three of google google tan. Oh wow yeah. I think lead a tweet to me in twenty years because her her bio on twitter is active active writer and editor sports make me crazy yoga relaxes me. Vegan food sustains me all tweets so personnel mostly in left. Maybe i'm more moderate in the future..

"Die and he said a good bye to his father but then he managed to survive and live through it and he was interviewed in the thing and he also oh had his wife had a tumor and like he's been at least at least he maybe he's so used to adversity that this course did not did not faze him and he was able to pull through here. Man must be so awkward to say okay goodbye to somebody that you're going to die when they pull through. It's like when you say goodbye and then you walk in the same direction. I'm like oh was that was a good goodbye now. I've got not nothing to say when you actually die already told you everything and saria revealed all those secrets. It's gonna make things weird going forward. All oh my tattoos told you about how i sabotage the lightning bolt obstacles that could get speed pass. Don't tell down and other injury you what an accusation boils all right well well he he did manage to get through the lightning bolts and he also got through the flying monkey bars now without a little bit of trouble but <hes> he was the first person to face the northwest passage does not get too far on the i believe he made it down in and then the second he started to go up he he went down yeah. It's tough so there you go but he's going to get there affairs quickly so he's he's going to. He's going to be able to get in that top two spot yeah. This must have been and weird because the people who qualified for the power tower probably were not expecting all night to be going to the power tower probably were like cooling down like eat against acta yeah well. We didn't finish now. We're going to take a quick break for our sponsors and we'll be right back and we're back so let's get back to the show then we had. I believe we had a lightning bolts. Montage research rainer john gavin maxwell ben martin bart copeland all going down on the late new lots and they said half the competitors that night were it had been fallen on the lightning bolts up to that point. That's too many for the first half of the course yeah then we see sandy zimmerman and there i was i was a little bit here. I like okay 'cause thereof. I mom to make it up the warped wall. She has become become a superstar she is. She is famous now for being the first mom to do it like thank aired yet. Yeah not not wasn't off she she hit she hit the buzzer so she was the first to hit a buzzer because she did it in qualifying and the others did it in the city finals so they didn't hit a buzzer when they did it so i think that's why ultimately they went with sandy because she did it in qualifying and so when the air it qualifies obviously gonna come before finals even though they did the other thing i and ultimately when you cut to the clip it's way any more satisfying to have them hitting a buzzer but they've been just keep going to the salmon ladder and still it's still does feel like it's pretty arbitrary area that she did it dan radically i and and now she gets all the credit in the superstardom that they claim to get which is really getting superstar. I started on wow taryn famous sandy zimmerman heater under minor well. She's talked about vow..

"That it really really really taxes your grip because you're holding on with one hand and you're swinging and moving bar so like as we saw like if you miss even once it's really just hanging on by the tips of your fingertips and that is going to severely tax your grip strength so you need to be very very perfect and precise is on the floating monkey bars and if you manage to get through all of that then your grip strength i imagine is very taxed when you try to take on the northwest passage and that's why we saw the people did not even close to completing the northwest passage because their grip strength has already gone exactly it's too much of similar things and it's also too much room for error with one small mistake like one small mistake takes you out which is not the case on every obstacle and not for nothing northwest passage also requires a lot of precision with cooking the things into the things so north ayrshire we haven't even described you grab lab these like little handles with upward hooks and you have to you know stick them into the wall and then hook like lock them in place as with the hook up if that makes any sense and so you have to go down as slanted sort of slope there and then in back up and then down again and then you dismount nobody managed to get up the the second the upward slope. This qualifying for a finals courses too hard. It's disproportionate. I understand that there's always going to be variation between some of the courses but it's not fun when you don't expect anybody to finish after in the episode i i. I actually don't mind it overall. I think the biggest problem i had with it was that one of the major really difficult obstacles was in the qualifying course and so because of that we saw a lot of athletes drop that really should have been qualifying it was kind of a crap shoot as to whether or not you got through the lightning bolts and i feel like if the lightning bolts had been a back half of the course obstacle kohl than it would have been a little more balanced even just put northwest passage earlier in the course and p. most people i think would have been able to get through that finicky ones toward the end where if you fall there. You still have a good chance of qualifying but yeah it was. It was definitely a rough if not here maybe they may needed to make sure that northwest passage looks really bad because they can never use it again unless they go to the pacific northwest again salt lake you can take the northwest passage and put it in the baltimore qualifiers for next year. Honestly like northwest passage to me. Reminded me a lot of the i think they called that the hang climb or something from stage three that judicial used to fall on every single year. It reminded me a lot of that. Honestly maybe even a little more difficult probably a lot more difficult to be honest because you have to put it in a certain spot rather than just grab so i i could see that as the stage three obstacle in that spot after the body prop like that's how that's how tough that one is the not have to call it the pacific west west. I i mean do they have these sort of southwest passage. You could still be passing northwest here. We didn't they would have to face the entire stage three to face north west so that you can pass nervous. The vegas asserted the southwest though you can be aiming northwest saying or is it sponsored by kim kardashian daughter north west there yeah that's it. Did you know that that was the name of christian ashton and kanye west's daughter first name north in last name western yeah yeah well..
