Drug Companies Face Lawsuits From Opioid Crisis As They Respond To The Pandemic
"This week, Johnson and Johnson announced a $1 billion deal with the federal government to develop a new Corona virus vaccine. It's one of many drug companies on the front lines of the covert 19 response, but many of these same firms are facing an avalanche of lawsuits for their role in the opioid epidemic. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Man has been following this and joins us now. Hi bran. Hi, Stacy. Somewhere in this seems like kind of a complicated moment for the drug industry in two very different stories playing out, But first tell us where things stand with the opioid lawsuits. Yeah, eso covered 19 basically shut down the court system nationally for months, but now that log jam is breaking loose and thousands of these civil and criminal cases they're grinding forward again. Big federal trial against pharmacy chains involved in the opiate epidemic just got the green light in Ohio. And next month, a lawsuit against two drugmakers Endo and Mallinckrodt goes to a jury trial in Tennessee. I spoke with Gerard Stranz, one of the lead attorneys representing local governments. In that case, they're demanding billions of dollars in compensation from these companies. Justice delayed is justice denied, and they know that when they sit in front of a jury of the community members would have to explain their conduct. There is no explanation and they're going to have to answer for what they've done. Remember, the federal government says 1/4 1,000,000 Americans have died after taking these opioid medications, and the drug industry is still scrambling to cope with the legal and financial fallout from that. Is there a risk that that opioid look, lawsuits could destabilize or maybe even bankrupt drug companies? I mean this at a time when they are really needed to respond to the pandemic. You know, people are talking a lot about this. Some drug companies have already filed for bankruptcy because of opioids and other firm Mallinckrodt said this week they may file for Chapter 11. So there is concern that holding these companies accountable for the addiction epidemic could disrupt their ability to make these important medical products. Rebecca half a G studies opioid litigation for the Rand Corporation and the University of Michigan. All of these companies have other products as well as opioids that are used for medically necessary purposes. So the goal is not necessarily to put these pharmacies thes manufacturers these distributors out of business altogether, and that would actually be bad for public health and or the health care industry. So one thing I'm hearing Stacy's. As these court cases all move forward. There's new pressure to reach some kind of national opioids settlement that would end all this uncertainty for the drug industry. I mean, obviously, the opioid lawsuits have been a huge black eye for the drug industry. Do you think the pandemic will give them a chance to repair some of the damage to their reputations? I think that is part of the story. Right now. Johnson and Johnson is a good example. Last year Oklahoma one A half $1,000,000,000 decision against the company of the state's attorney general described Johnson and Johnson as a drug kingpin organization for its role making and selling opioids. It's terrible PR. Now the company's casting itself really differently is a public health champion. Of course, a lot of state and local governments say not so fast. They want billions of dollars from these companies before they put the opioid crisis
Addressing Health Disparities in Puerto Rico
"Of the continental US, the covert 19 pandemic is happening as the push for social justice continues. Natasha Alford is a journalist for the Gri Oh, and Pulitzer Center grantee. And she traveled to Puerto Rico shortly after the island's political protests in 2019 to understand another uprising taking place on the land What she calls the Afro Latino revolution. She joins us now. Welcome to hearing now. Thank you so much for having me, Tanya. Yes. And Natasha. What? Through lines? Are you saying between the Afro Puerto Rican community and what's happening in other parts of the country in the protests for racial justice? How does PR's history and culture Play out in the construction of race and racial experiences. Yes. Oh, there's so much to unpack there. But you know, the first thing I'll say is after the death of George Floyd, we immediately saw protest. We saw vigils and we saw memorials in honor of his life right in Puerto Rico, So obviously there was something that really resonated with people there. And specifically in Afro Puerto Rican communities. Now often times when people think of Afro Puerto Rican Sze, they may associate them with just one community. One town one neighborhood. I'll give you an example. Louisa has a really high proportion of residents who identify as Afro Puerto Rican. But the reality is that there are black people everywhere in Puerto Rico. It's just his divers as the United States. And so we saw that what was happening in the continental US was really resonating. It's resonating because there are similarities. What have you found in terms of health disparities without for Latinos and other types of disparities? Do they mirror what we see in the continental United States? Yes, I think that there are parallels, and it makes sense, right? Because well, you think about the history of Puerto Rico. There was slavery there as well. Right? Even though our societies may be different, you know, we think of the continental US we think of segregation and Jim Crow. Ah, lot of people just don't know the history of Puerto Rico and and slavery and the aftermath of how it played out. They often assume that Puerto Rico is a Nyland of racial harmony that it is a racial utopia. The phrase La Grande Familia, Kenya. Is about being one Puerto Rican family. But a lot of people will tell you that that's actually not the case. And so with health disparities, one thing that researchers have found is that darker skinned Puerto Rican Sze report poorer health outcomes. And some of the reasons for that are social treatment. The communities in which they live in are sometimes poorer exposure to social stressors. There's ah great research paper that was written that came out of the University of Puerto Rico by Jose Caravaggio, Quito and S. R Boudreau and they talked about Changing the way that we measure those disparities by changing the language we use. So we often think of black and white in the United States, but they did a study where they asked people to list the shade of their skin tone. When they did that they actually got more information that showed what those health disparities were, and the key was using local language and understanding of race rather than trying to impose the continental US is language when it comes to race. Of course,

State of Play Reactions
"And hello everyone. My name is Jonathan Bush and this podcast beyond episode six, hundred and sixty one. In episode I am starting as I. Prepare a treat thing for my dog because he's angry that I'm recording this show I'm joined this week by Brian All. He can. He can. He can bark for me. He can you Andros joined by Max Scoville. You should get him xbox controller shape squeaky toys so that he can be a playstation show disrupting commodore dog form. That's a good idea. Now, what do you think of this contaminant and then he bites up? Obviously, he's mad that I haven't given them that tree yet. So I'm going to send it his way. Of, course, we are going to be talking all about the state of play which just wrapped up as a recording the show. Unfortunately, Lucy O'Brien can't be with us because her Internet has decided why? Why were today? That's unnecessary? So she's figuring that out. But of course, if you're wondering where regular scheduled episode is already happened, so you can go back and listen to that either on youtube or your favorite podcast services. It's all there But yeah, we want to do a second episode to break down this state of play and we have a full wrap up all of the video screen shots, all that stuff on Nigerian. You can check out a full breakdown of it. I don't think we'll be going. By game during this, but this, what state of play, of course did come with the expectations that there would not be any major first party announcements there would not be any. Hardware or business related announcement. So assumingly here about any I pretty acquisitions or anything like that, I is basically going to be focused on ps four PS VR and some third party indie updates when it comes to ps five. So with that. All in mind as the expectations were set, just sort of a general down feel Brian. I'll start with you. How did you feel about the show overall? It. I guess like a a C. I would seem like a six out of ten or I, guess, that would be a not not a is like a seven, right? So. Six ten I D. Letters. Yeah, maximum. He looks better idea. Let's do states if that's if that's the state of play was a state, it would be a solid. New Hampshire which I don't really have any strong feelings about I don't particularly dislike it, but it doesn't really get me excited. Nobody's like want to go to New Hampshire and I go hell. Let's go to new. Hampshire, right just it was fine like I feel like they were good in terms of getting expectations on the right level. But at the same time like you know they were like it's going to be forty plus minutes and I was like. Well, it's searcher was but. You know. What it was fine it. It's all right. What else are we GonNa do in Twenty Twenty Watch. The News. Yeah I mean I'm trying to think what other states that would be similar to in like most of it, I'm not really interested in visiting, but it had some. Could be. Cool. Yeah, it's yeah. I. Guess I, Guess, that's a good way of putting. It is I. I'll never never turn these things down, but it is. It does feel a little weird that it was. It was just sort of a kind of a few small things. Some slightly bigger things glued together. But nothing really like. Holy Crap that that was huge, but I think the key thing is these been. So sort of inconsistent. If like if they if these were first announced, was it like last year around e three? If somebody had done these on a on a regular cycle, like kind of like Nintendo directs, are I feel like we'd be more accustomed to like what to expect, but the fact that this is this is coming along especially when we're so hungry for PS five news, it's just a little bit like it's even even when they're completely preparing us. It's still a little hard not to be like a little bit underwhelmed. Just like well, I wanted more. Than intended Iraq's have sort of pivoted recently with the their announcement of those like new mini rex doing, and so I think even even the cadence of what these things used to be is now going away and so that's I don't I don't know I feel that like it's cool to get like kind of information drops like this, but on the flip side like I'd. Rather. I'd rather they charge of the laser beam in blasts it when it's when it's big and strong, right? Yeah. It's. It's a weird thing because you know a I think it was maybe a month or two ago. They did almost like a state of play on the playstation blog of ten big upcoming indie Games for PS Horn ps five and I wonder like why wasn't that a state of play presentation Max to your point like the identity of what this is? This year state of play has been the. The last of US and goes to Sushi my showcases and last year was the first one where they focused so much on ps VR that people got very upset that it wasn't focused enough on ps four. So they pivoted in the second one. Had you know F F seven remake finally coming back in a big monster hunter, a ice born DLC showcase. Mike. Big Games that people wanted to see and it has been this uneven inconsistent thing that I don't really know what the identity of it is. and. So going into this presentation, the expectations are set, but
Empowering Medtech with Anatoly Geyfman
"Welcome back to the outcomes rocket. Sal Marquez here and today I. Have the privilege of hosting on a totally gave man. He is the CEO and Co founder of Care Avoidance, a healthcare sales enablement solution for life sciences that is doing extraordinary work for drawing out value propositions. Companies Looking to express that clearly anatoly came to work in healthcare early in his career, starting off as the lead engineer on one of the first hip compliant benefits, communication products for enterprises, he continued to work with large healthcare data sets and HR soft before. Before becoming the chief architect at Ambra. Health a cloud based medical imaging company. It was there at Ambra that Anatoly saw the need for high quality data to inform sales execution which germinated. The idea for care voyage were thrilled to have him on the podcast today, and it's such a unique platform that they're using to reach customers and for sales teams to reach their customers in a clear way Donatelli. Thank you so much for joining me today. Thank Salty. Got Be. Yeah. Absolutely. So tons of great stuff being done by your company. And so before we dive into really the meat bones of what you guys do there, I love to first arc and find out more about you and one inspires your work in healthcare. I appreciate it, and so I started working in healthcare actually when I was still in high school. I just happened to luck out and find on an internship working on one of the first hickory maple insisting that for human resources management. So that really starting my love for working with large data sets and working with privileged data, like that I continue dot read some other gigs on signatory around Maple imaging on, and that's really where I started learning about. About, the difficulty that companies have selling in healthcare. So with my may imaging gig on I, I was the chief architect company called Ambra Health on big digital medic rummaging Bloomberg, and then I switched over to more of a developer evangelists than sales engineering role, and that's where I really started looking at how companies that produce the rate products go to market. And what inspires me a about healthier? Specifically, my little corner of healthcare is helping innovators, take their market big their products to market. I think there's a lot of great innovation that's happening right now. especially with digital innovation machine learning ai off care. But I think that the past to a successful product is still at I. It's still very hard to navigate. So that's what inspires me getting these products so. So, writer audience and getting patients right treatment at the right time, eventually through through the use of our product and obviously great innovation. Yeah. You know it's That's so great, and there's so many opportunities for companies and you know the people leading them, the teams that are representing the great work that you know I mean many of these companies we have on the podcast a totally you know the. Great Work and they have great products and services and the pathway to get there. The go to market strategy isn't always super clear, and then on top of that, it's not easy to sell inside of our healthcare system and it takes forever so. All of those things are true own. Yeah, and I think that there are a lot of products that end up failing because the products and successful and because the greater market strategy is maybe not very well informed their beats not very well executed, and so if I can do anything to help that and that was where I decided to spend, my time is opening entrepreneurs with way to go to market I. Think it's great and in our vertical or our economy or health care economy, it's so necessary. So tell us a little bit about what you guys are doing. Doing at care voyage to add value to the healthcare ecosystem of innovators. Yeah. -solutely. So you know I'll start with a problem I. think the really big problem right now, the REC- at least in our little corner of the healthcare economy is data symmetry It's you know everyone makes decisions or everyone strives to make decisions in a data driven way the acquisition of data to make those decisions, your go to market or even your your product strategy is still not democratized Jesus, sometimes available and very regularly available in. Thanks. It's not available at all on companies like care. Where we're trying to do. At least off the for. Right now, we're trying to do is we're trying to democratize access to this information whether it's you know information about who's doing, what types of services takes a physicians practicing the type of and your are devices best for or on that you're pharmaceutical product is best stations for it. I think a lot of like data's available, but traditionally, it's only been available to the wealthiest layers market and so our goal is to democratize access to that. So even startups that may not have the backing of the largest feet from on me, not how hundred million dollars in the bay and can't get access to it and really execute a great girl market.
Pier 1 Import Transaction - What We Can learn From It
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and Neil Patel, and today we are going to talk about something really interesting. That's happening right now while we're GonNa talk about the pure one import transaction and what we can learn from it but we. A little context here as to when recording this. This is July twenty, second twenty twenty where still in the midst of Covid, and so what's going on as a lot of these companies retailers are going bankrupt. They were already shaky, and this was basically nail in the coffin for them. So they've had to basically liquidate. Neil. I'm sure you've looked into this deal a little bit. What do you know about it? Can you kind of pay some white as to WHO's kind of spearheading this as well? Sure. So there's a guy named Alex, ooh Zeus Anti Lopez. Many guys know about the guy has a. Car. Garage union, it's at. Times really smart. So ty ended up techno was but a lot of people look at Thai Guy who's pushing Lamborghini, and there's not much more to. What ty analysis decided to do was leverage on leverage. Our audience gets a ton of investors in go out there in go leverage their audience and going by these struggling e-commerce. First one they did was dressed farm about her pennies on the dollar. Now, the buying pure one, and then from there, they turn around the company's make him grow at the fat. And you got a really solid business in part, audience built brand lowliest do the bat and off. Yeah I mean, if you think about it, it's it was initially, they agreed on a twenty one, million dollar deal in the pure one came back and said, we want thirty million. So I think it's a thirty million dollar deal now, but to Neal's point, it's pennies on the dollar, the work de Sweat equity that's been put in over the years and years. They don't necessarily need all the retail shops anywhere. You take the brand, make everything. Go Onto ECOMMERCE. You'RE GONNA go. So, you're going to print money what turns action. It's super simple. It's effective and I wish more people thought about things that way a lot of people want to build businesses from scratch. The hardest part is building easier. Part is growing muscle were marketers cutting back in grown company has already a billion dollars revenue. They're not fall role while. Is it okay by for pennies on the dollar, you cut the fat and made two billion anymore, but they slew one, hundred, million. So that really amazing business, right? I was listening to that yesterday. So Nike originally, they were slated for their online revenue to be about thirty percent for twenty, twenty three. I at the target now is fifty percent. So the already shot past that. So a lot of stuff is accelerated. Yes. We know that they're not getting a lot of offline transactions, but would this basically means if you look at shop advice stock a lot of stuff ECOMMERCE which is accelerating. Yet, and before this year roughly percent of online transact commerce transaction rebound online that. And sure after cheers Emmy going down a little bit, but it's still gonNA. Be Way higher than where started. Yeah I think at least one of the lessons from me here is you have to look at the Times what are people used to right now, and is it just a business model? tweak where you remove the retail component? The you know the in store component and you just switch it to online and boom. You're you're good to go. 'cause people are tied to the original kind of appear one management team might be tied to hey, we should keep the stores people stuck with doing things the old way by once you remove the emotion from it wants you just be used a objective and you think about it from a business perspective everything changes anything else. Let's it in the last thing you should take away from pure wants to Techn- idea something as donor to book by its cover. A lot of people a judge tyler. This guy is in smart steam
Healing From COVID-19
"Debbie Masar is an actress that you might recognize from the movie goodfellas. Less take it. Easy. Or entourage for younger sometimes lines the people you love best is the most loving. You can do you sound like a twisted fortune cookie. except. So, I reached out to Debbie when I thought I was sick and she immediately called the. She was one of the first people that I had seen posting publicly about being sick with covid nineteen. I don't know if she realized how important it was for me to hear from somebody who actually had it. So I wanted to reconnect with Debbie now that we've both recovered and I called her identity I'm Maria joining from Brooklyn. Yes. So officially welcomed in the thick and. We're talking about surviving in battling cove it and I remember when I first got sick. I. Was having a lot of anger and denial and anxiety and rage. You told me that this thing was gonna come in waves that I needed to be prepared. You told me at that point you were already in recovery and you're like I'm cleaning all the time and I was like, Oh my God, how can she even lift her arm? And so I'm wondering what was it that made? You understand how important it would be for you to. Talk to someone like me when I started to feel really sick it didn't feel like anything that I ever had before it was kind of weird and it was a collective thing that was happening in my house all at once with all of my family members, I always feel like it takes a village. I actually had people that were having similar symptoms as me and getting sick at the same time as me and we sort of formed this. Co vid nineteen like reach out center to each other going Oh my God I haven't have you got an oxy meter. Have you taken this herb? A lot of people are just suggesting things and things that they thought might help them but I really was so grateful for actually people reaching out to me that I'm also kind mommy like that like when people get it and they're confused. Because I had gone through it is well, I just wanted to be there for you and I had talked it on my instagram because there were no people talking about it and I remember you saying that you were getting backlash and so what was that like Debbie to not only get this but then you're very open hearted person people were coming at you during this may first of all, I was being told by my doctors that I know that I'm friendly with I'm sorry. Jeb. But I only have a couple of tests that were given to me and you just don't fit the criteria and I thought to myself. I'm taking the subway two to three times a day. I was in Italy, all of December and part of January I've been on airplanes. How do I not meet criteria? I have every symptom so we will when people started coming on. Instagram I mean first of all, this disease has been politicized at this point, which is wrong. So I, just felt there was an incredible. Amount of ignorance of arrogance of denial of people going like you know Oh. Gosh. You know it's only for like the people in. You know nursing homes. So you know like you when I see what's happening in the rest of the country where my heart. Goes you and I? We did. We survived there's definitely an awareness of kind of survivor's guilt for sure. I don't have any guilt. I'm thrilled. A great way to. End. It. There's no guilt here because I thought I would die my lungs are not the strongest they never have been since child I have chronic bronchitis. I've been a smoker most of my life and I had pneumonia a few years ago. So I thought I was going to die and I, have a family I have a lust for life and I hate needles because I survive I went and gave a huge bag of my convalescent plasma. I try to spread the word because this is far from over. People need to buckle up because it's going to be a rough road and we need the tools to know to be getting tested. Not think that because you have the antibodies necessarily that you're safe when you do get sick what are the things that can help you

Let's start off by talking about the big news, which actually Nintendo finally decided to reveal something before recorded. So I'm very grateful for that thanking Intendo, but we finally known antennas next scheduled release. It will be picked three deluxe out on Astra with. For Fifty, nine, ninety, nine. No. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So You Brian, we're your pigment fan I look pick. Yeah, you. excited. Yeah, yes. Yes. Yes. I, am I'm all for. Every last great. We you exclusive game to no longer be that and to be brought to a platform where millions more people can enjoy it. And I've picked threes really fun. It's really good game. What I'm a little annoyed about with this is that. They. D listed the version. Basically, the exact moment that they announced this version and the version was on was selling for twenty dollars. So. That's kind of A. Weird situation. 'cause like. They're. They're basically telling their fans like if. If you have access to switch, this is where you'll have to play this game because you won't be able to get this anywhere else for cheaper. And also that the it's it's three times the price. Now, they're adding stuff to it, which obviously, we'll get into a, but yet my gut reaction was gay pigment three, and then also boo to the price of then also, you're totally going to pay that price, get pigment three under switch. So yeah, you're totally right. The an I also wanted to mention that we're bringing up the kind of skis tactic of taking it off the we shop. You. Guys noticed that all of the the vouchers that people bought I think it was, it was one hundred dollars for for two vouchers, one voucher per game, and they expired on July thirty first, which is right. Before they made this announcement I know at least one person in our podcast forums on facebook mentioned that they actually called Nintendo customer service and asked for the. Vouchers to get an extension and they granted him the extension by another year. It is now too late to do that. Ari. Or maybe not maybe if you have expired vouchers sitting around, you can call customer service and have them I'm so sorry, Nintendo customer service workers. You guys get a flux of collars because of this, but hey, it's worth a shot right especially if you haven't used them yet. But that was kind of embarrassed about this whole thing to like you mentioned, the vouchers are to one hundred bucks, which means if you buy, you know sixty bucks a sixty dollar game you're saving. Ten Bucks per game, which is a great deal. But you. They stopped selling them like a year ago. Yesterday, basically, two days ago, and with the expiration, you could put them towards stuff that was available for preorder. But because Pittman three wasn't available for preorder. You couldn't put it towards that Nintendo has been pretty quiet about. Announcing Twenty Twenty lineup arrested twenty twenty WANNA and so. You didn't really have anywhere to put that money and then. They retire those vouchers in three days. Later, there were like Pittman three and so A. Libertarian Carriers I. Wish I'd have panned out a little bit better. Yeah not crazy about I will. I would have been more forgiving if they announced it like the day, the vouchers expired because then at least people would be like I, have to spend it on this. Now, I mean, it still would have been a little bit questionable, but not nearly as various as this was i. don't Know Logan Seth? Did you guys by those doctors? No, I. Didn't I thought. It was I would just spend the extra ten bucks. I'm not really a digital player I mostly get physical stuff, but I thought another weird thing about it is like a third of the Games. You could get with voucher dollars. You weren't even saving anything on a bunch of the options. So that was another kind of weird part about the voucher system. I was just never onboard with the whole thing. You. No I didn't buy the batches. I. Actually Forgot
A Song For Peace
"This is the story of a song that is in a way the story of this country in the spring of Nineteen, sixty-nine at a sidewalk cafe on Richmond Street tucked in from the corner of Dizengoff. Street in Tel Aviv a twenty four year old poet named Yakov or Janka wrote Blit met a twenty five year old musician and arranger named yet year Rosenbloom and the two men became friends the cafe was called California and the. Place, itself said something about the people who made a habit of spending their days especially, their long nights there. The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers. On Alterman and Lebron's Sean Ski. Lay. Goldberg. Alexander Penn great writers who had been young and who grew old drinking coffee in the afternoon and vodka in Iraq at night at the simple spare tables of cassette alongside these luminaries in the nineteen sixties. New Generation staked claims at the table, the actor or. The singer Oregon Stein the architect Yaakov wreck there and many others cafe California was not seat from its vantage half of long block away even the young people at seat where old carseat was yesterday's Bohemia California was today's Cafe California was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine by a man named Ab Netanyahu who was only thirty two. Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia. For India when he was twelve at sixteen and Nineteen, forty three, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Indo British Air Force in time after he trained to watch the Second World War wind down at twenty one he came to fight in Israel's war of independence and never left taking a job as an El Al pilot when he was decommissioned. It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat. Ab Thanh was a magnet for Bohemians and he came alive when he was with Bohemians, their company produced in him at once a sense of satisfaction. He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer. Men by playing that, he named piece one on February twenty, eighth nineteen, sixty six, he took off and flying low to avoid Israeli radars he landed in Port Saieed the Egyptians sent him back the next day Nassar had refused to see him back home a retired David Ben Gurion told reporters that not tons trip was an event of moral and political importance and quote pope. Pious gave him a medal of peace and Robert Kennedy and Bertrand Russell sought out his company not much later the notion took hold of Natanz, that music held the key to altering. Israeli. In the summer of Nineteen Sixty Nine AB NATANZ bought a Dutch cargo ship named MVP SEATO MVP stands for motor vessel and he rechristened it the MVP piece from Holland he sailed to New York to raise money and set up a shipboard radio station. His plan was to anchor in the Mediterranean outside territorial waters of Egypt and Israel and broadcast songs of peace that might open the minds of Israelis any. Alike his sojourn to New York stretched biblically three years would pass before he returned with ship in good repair with mixers, turntables, ABC cartridge machines, reel to reel tape machines, and fifty kilowatt transmitter to help not on- by what he needed John. Lennon. And Yoko Ono signed hundreds of posters of the two of them in bed in Amsterdam their famous bet in which not on sold to raise money for audio equipment. John Lennon also offered not time yet. Rolls. Royce grads to sell at auction, but the practical impediments of shipping the grand car stymied the business, the carpenters, Johnny Mathis and other musicians recorded for non promotional clips in praise of peace. Not an idea was that new music might open minds in Israel Egypt. The station eventually began to broadcast in nineteen seventy-three as the voice of peace
Pushing Yourself To The Next Level - Episode 18 - burst 1
"You want to find out what you're really capable of. Then this might be the episode for you. Sit down several land and let's hit gone. Hey Hey Boesch Wade here the main with the wit. In your host with powerful action principles for success the podcast where we don't fool around no fluff no filler. We just get right into the subject and today subject is pushing yourself where you thank you can't go. That's right. This is about pushing yourself to the next level going where you've never gone before going to those places that next step up where you've never been before always improving yourself. Never letting yourself stay static in. You've heard me talk about that. So many times before if you've been listening to this podcast. I honestly believe if you're not moving forward, you're moving backward. You must always be moving forward and in moving forward you're moving up, you're moving up to the next level that next step and sometimes we tend to stay a little bit static and we've got to push ourselves out of our comfort zone. We've got kind of throw ourselves into the fire because will never be successful if we don't push ourselves out of our comfort zone as I've said before it's just that simple. If you stay stuck in that comfort zone and get too comfortable, resisting any kind of change, your most likely never going to reach success. As. I've mentioned before when I first became an entertainer I wasn't that good. I. Wasn't that good
Chlo Valdary on Love & Race
"Today it's so great to have coli Valerie on the podcast after spending a year as a Bartley fellow. At The Wall Street Journal, Thou developed the theory of enchantment, an innovative framework for social emotional learning character development and interpersonal growth that uses pop culture as an educational tool in the classroom and beyond. Khloe trained around the world including in South Africa the Netherlands Germany and Israel her clients have included high school and college students, government agencies, business teams, and many more because also lectured in universities across America including Harvard Georgetown. Work has been covered in psychology today magazine and her writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal coli. So so glad to finally tell you. Likewise, well, where do we begin? There so many so many potential starting points. If it's cool with you, I'd love to start with your theory of enchantment I'm enchanted with it as A. I know. But. I am enchanted with it because I. You know I have a deep interest in education and making sure that no kids fall between the cracks and I just love to hear how your program addresses some of those issues and just. Inspires you most about that work that you do? Sure. So theory of enchantment is a social emotional learning program. I've designed about a year and a half ago. And it comes out of my my desire to construct a framework to teach people how to love using the things that we already love and that we already gravitate towards. So things like pop culture for example, because I believe that there are narrative within our pop culture that teach people how to believe in their own sense of south worthiness believe in their ability to overcome obstacles to endure hardship. Until by blending those elements of pop culture that teach these lessons with ancient wisdom my theory is that you can teach people how to love themselves, and then in long run be able to get along with and love others. I'm really inspired and motivated by especially getting it in as many schools as possible but really. Young people, teenagers, and adults I'm I'm I'm really excited for for the possibility of seeing how many people become. Enamored with this approach. So how many years have you been doing that? When did you create the program? So I created it formerly a year and a half ago. Right on. So, how old are you right now and twenty, six, th moment. Cool. Yeah. So let's back up a little bit about your history. So what was your major in College? My Major was international studies with a concentration in diplomacy. Oh Wow that's gonna come in Handy now. You're applying it well. Applying it on twitter you're applying those people's finale. Try My best. It's much much needed more more people like that on social media and in the world broader. So when did you get interested in education? So what was the point you before you create this program? You're like, wow, they're really this indeed. So, basically, after I graduated graduated in two, thousand fifteen and then I moved to New York in the summer of two thousand fifteen because I got a job at the Wall Street Journal. At The Wall Street Journal for Year working on the desk and Um for nine months while I. was there I worked on a thesis that ended up being the catalyst for theory of enchantment are trying to again figure out how to create a framework for teaching people how to love within the context of conflict in diplomacy because that was my background but there was no framework that specifically explicitly laid this out like how do we get people to learn how to love there were frameworks Potter we get people to stop fighting each other, but not necessarily, you know to start loving each other. So I created a thesis came up with a theory and then lectured on that thesis for two years. And then increasingly when I would lecture get the response from parents in from people from all walks of life. Saying, Hey, this isn't just applicable. Within the context of conflict resolution is also applicable within the context of social emotional learning in the classroom with when talking about high schools we're talking about interpersonal matters when you're talking about just trying to create a society with more human flourishing in general. So you might want to consider taking what you've done and expanding upon it and building upon it and developing it into a full course. So enough people told me that and I decided to run with it.
What happens after you die?
"And what happened after you die? I don't really know my grandfather is. This is my brother. Can I think his body's gone and consciousness he's gone. Things were at their his box of committed ashes are right in front of me. Tell you what's his planning like? It know your voice is getting on that. Thing you're getting set. He's alive in a way. Like a ghost but as like. As like something. A. Scientist from never be able to know 'cause like let's say they need someone to die. So that they could make that on that. How would they make data on that? If the PERSON'S DEAD Kuenz right isn't a data. Yes. Some people have these near death experiences and they talk about like the lights at the end of the tunnel but the fact that they've told us about this means that they didn't die. I kind of feel like science isn't really going to work this time. So I. Thought I might turn to religion for semesters. Own Interview Buddhist because my grandparents they're Buddhist. And you know my dad is technically Buddhist although he doesn't really celebrate it. And I'm just interested to see what put us a mess to say about death there is no real short answer for the question that is so profound. This is Angie Neal he's actually chaplain for Olympians. And not only is he met the pope. He's also met the Dalai Lama so like this guy must know a lot about Buddhism. The main belief in Buddhism three scientific way of looking at things energy does not disappear. It usually assumes another form. and. The belief Buddhism is that when you die your spiritual energy does not just disappear. It assumes another form and that form can either be in hell or it can be on earth. Or it? Could. Be. In Heaven. In terms of Hell Hell is not a permanent place in Buddhism, hell is jail. If you've got really really bad Karma, you go to jail and then you have the chance of being pardoned and you have the chance of probation. So in Buddhism nobody goes to hell forever then comes earth. Now Earth of course is the most interesting part of it. If you are reborn on earth, you can either be reborn at says an animal we can be reborn as a human being there are certain criteria which would help decide what would be your formulas adopt like maybe if you're an aunt but you're like a really really good and maybe it come back in this time like beetle and just maybe work yourself up. Excellent. You've you learn certain spiritual lessons in this lifetime like in the same way that like a punishment itself isn't necessarily all bad he get punished so he can learn from that absolutely if you deep genuine remorse. Ask for forgiveness. They will give you a chance to go directly to heaven which we call Judo in Japan or Sukova Incense Sanskrit. Basically it's heaven.
How To Bring More Humanity To Your Leadership With Beth Weissenberger
"Hi Beth welcomes leadership, Biz Cafe I- nice to meet. You tend to be air. Thank you for having me so Beth to help frame our conversation today for those listening. I was wondering if you could start off by describing what your inner you career online program is, what's the pain point you saw and created this program to address? Shore If you look at most companies, for instance, they're the top. Let's call it five hundred to a thousand if it's a large organization and so most companies will pay for the top leadership to go through our workshops to go through. Now, our zoom workshops to go through our coaching programs But what do you do with the other thousand nok going to spend the big bucks on because you don't care about them? It's just. Were Coaching is expensive individual coaching, and so if you WANNA impact an organization and really raise the whole bar of an organization, you need everybody participating in the same language and the same work, and so we decided to invent our inner you career. We also have a life love and student, but our interview career for the companies that have many people who are not spending money on for coaching but want people to go through the method. And that you know is way different than paying you know a thousand and our for coaching you get twelve modules you get everything we teach our workshops in this one audio four, six, hundred, and fifty dollars, right? So that way companies can service. Their people that aren't getting the Individual One on one coaching and workshops. Now. I've had the chance best to go through your online course was particularly drawn to the program's goal of transforming how we view the word human from being a noun to a verb much. In the way we talk about googling something and what I love about this idea is how you point out that what this does is it puts the onus of change of becoming better and of being responsible for what we put out there on us now. Granted this is a bit of an abstract concept. So could you delve more into this idea of treating human as a verb and how does it create this pivot in terms of owning our own development and growth for sure? Yeah. No I love that. So to human, where now absolutely saying is avert like human a better like could you please learn to human better and remember I I coach C. Suite on and executives and top leadership team success for and if you take a leader so webbed are Whether of large organization or small, you want that leader to be the best human they could be the leader such that they're inspiring. They are know they're people to get the job done and to be great humans themselves. So it really is There are ways that we are as human beings that suck that absolutely suck as a parent as a leader as A. As a team member on a team you could name your top three things that you already know. You should do better human being wet, right like you know someone I was on the phone with someone the other day was looking at hiring us and he's a CEO of one million dollar company wants to bring it to a billion but knows that his being late to every meeting, his procrastinating his not doing things is getting in the way of his leadership and so that's not great unit that he is shows up late to his own meetings and it gets mad at people. Like how is that work as a human very So you start to hear and deal with not that you're a bad person we have what's great about us but we also have what sucks about us and most of us don't know how it impacts people. You know when I said to that CEO, like do you have any idea what the people make up in their own head about you showing applies to every meeting you have no clue. You know some of them will feel disrespected and thank you don't respect their time. Some of them will roll their eyes like how dare you Hold Neto account when you're not accountable and then you always have a frigging excuse about and get mad at me I have an excuse. So it is all about. Upping the ante on better humiliating as a human being yourself.
Dr. Howard Fullman: COVID, Probiotics, and the Impact of Coronavirus on the Future of Medicine
"We're honored to have. Dr Howard J foam and join us to catch up on medicine, practice and politics prevention, and of course a bit about our fight against. COVID nineteen so may we suggest that you pull yourself a double. Sit back and join us on medicine. We're still practicing I'm bill, Curtis. I are host. The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care. My very good friend Dr Steven Taback, however you, Steve Hey bill good to see you. We haven't had dinner together for a while I. Don't remember what it was like. They actually have dinner and enjoy an evening. So you know we have one of our favorite experts rejoining. Rejoining us today Dr, Howard J. Felman he is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology will learn more about that. In a minute Howard, served a multi decade tenure at Kaiser Permanente Day as partner board member. President of the Executive Committee Chief of staff and chair of the Quality Committee. He supervised forty three hundred staff over five hundred doctors. Howard is now senior operating advisor. Advisor at the Atlantic. Street capital for their medically focused investments Dr Howard J foam. Welcome back I nice to be here. Stephen nicest to us well Hey Howard. Good to see you so last time we met in our studio in Malibu was only back in February and it seems like a whole lifetime ago in quite a year, and we're only halfway through it and we know. Know there's a lot more to come Howard. I hope you'll forgive me, but I took my nasty pill this morning, so I want to dive into a difficult issue, but as the time of this recording according to Johns Hopkins, Japan although infected early has less than one cova death per hundred thousand population, while the US has thirty nine Cova deaths per one hundred thousand population. Japan more elderly per capita than any other country. They kept their borders open during the Wu Han locked down there, stay home requests by Japanese. Government have been voluntary, as was any of the closing of their non essential businesses. And now for a country with one city that houses more than thirty seven million people. They have less than a thousand deaths countrywide, but the hell is going on I. Don't know that anyone knows exactly all of the differences, but I'll give you. Some and I think that may be different. One is there's probably a genetic component to this disease that we don't quite understand. People were speculating. Why was so much more Italy because Italian get together a lot more than others people wonder with net net might have been some genetic predisposition. She decided kind storms for example, another article morbidity in patient population, so age is one thing you're right. Japanese population is actually older than the US. By other commodities like obesity, which is turning out to be a significant risk factor here is unfortunately. It's still a lot more obesity united. States than there is Japan so just because we've sorted out that the age factor may not explain it, but we have some more chronic illness in the United States spend maybe contributing to it as well and then you know the way we've handled. Handled the public health aspect of this and again I also wanted to be very careful about criticism of even the public health system because I'm sure there's a lot of things we look back and could have done differently, but we also have a lot of public health officers. Some extremely courageous ones and I'll say that I think unfortunately a some of our public does not really believe. Believe in this pandemic, the seriousness that they should, and that may be affecting the outcomes as well. There are certain communities as you know. Where substantial numbers of people were having just seemingly significant disregard, and so that might have been large numbers coming in at a just a bowl of people coming in all the ones that saturated the healthcare system made it hard to take care of. Of someone people possibly people coming in later than they should have because perhaps denial about the significance of the Selma's when it is on severe, and it's not be causing a doctor that I. don't WanNa Fault. The nurses and the doctors and rest of just I've seen what they're doing. My follow it very carefully, and I'm very proud of them, but I think because of the. The differences in population and our public health system is not working well is not resigned the way it should be, and there's not functioning in the way that it has been planned to function the
"the times" Discussed on PTI
"Can't make more hires and seeing lift every voice in think it's just week one. You know what is not going to. You know it's not going to kill anybody to sink to anthems before a football game. If you WANNA NEAL IF PEOPLE WANNA raise a fist black glove whatever you wanNA. Do Fine. Just pay attention just do that. So I'M GONNA deal with the issue as I've dealt with before which is I, don't care what anybody sings. You can say what you want. If it was up to me, you'd either seeing into the mystic. 'CAUSE everybody loves to sing my girl. The fact of the matter is that it is an invention to sing the national anthem or any anthem before a sporting event. It's simply an invention. We wrap ourselves far too tightly in the flag in this country is my opinion now. The one thing I wonder about. Is is the NFL PA on board with this and I'll tell you exactly why, because if this is seen as just a piece of candy, then the NFL is going to get justifiably criticized for, and if in fact, all the players stand for one and all the players Neil, for the other, the NFL problem that it has not anticipated because some people in this country to go well I assume there was a deal here. I sort of assumed that you do both I hope the NFL in the NFL. PA are are joystick together on this one, but as far as singing. It's fine with me. It's fine with me I'm GONNA call Michael or Liz tonight. We have a single long on the phone. Michael can join in. By the way one time just so I can make this clear. You can hire people and you need to NFL in every industry. And you can also sing. One does not preclude the other side I. WanNa hear this like at some you know like you say either or proposition it is it so people getting them up their phony excuses and scream on twitter all they want. Make. Some hires make some promotions sing lift every voice sensing. I'd love to see that. why don't you hire people who are good singers as well? I can sing it Mrs. Richard schooled me I. Know Voice Instinct Yes. Do Walk Reverses. You like that James Weldon Johnson. Let's move the NBA. As if the Orlando Bubble Tony Wasn't precarious enough. The NBA is reportedly in deep discussions to launch a second bubble for the teams that did not make the cut for the original bubble Jackie macmullan reports. It would take place in Chicago Hey. With every team practicing for two weeks and then playing four games for under the same testing procedures, the League is implementing in Florida. Tone with the upside of a losers bubbled in a bubble outweigh the downside. So I'm going to be fairly brief on this one, what upside exactly are we talking about? Nobody. Nobody wants to see these teams play these teams. These teams stink. You've already expanded the original bubble to include more teams than you need it. And now you putting together a second bubble for absolutely what is the is the reason greed. What does it do you think good players from the Steph curry is going into the second bubble this. Maybe. You have a good reason for this. This seems insane to me. I would not want to be the person calling Steph, Curry Klay Thompson Draymond Green. Going to play this, let me just say this I I've talked to. A little smattering of players. Coaches executives. From those eight teams! Nobody is said to be I. WANNA. Go. I can't do it in that bubble from what I'm told from what I am told. If what's being reported, it sounds like Michelle Roberts wants this. She wants the her players. The constituents to have the same opportunity I. Dunno same opportunity at what 'cause. Sixteen teams make the playoffs playoffs. You can't rush it away. All the other fourteen should have the same opportunity. This seems to be looked. The intention may be great. I'm going to presume it is I. Want to presume the intention is great but I. don't get it the like no. No I don't I, if we. Has the staff and the money to put this on, nope. WHO's GonNa televise it which is where some of them I. If you if you care about the health and safety during a pandemic of your players, why are you doing this? At great length about what the bubble is, and how it constricts life, and how nobody really wants to do this unless going for championship this Mike, this makes no sense. It just makes no sense. Does it Demar Rosen and JJ redick spoken so passionately and eloquently in the last twenty four hours a battle cam do in this, but this is hard. This is difficult to do. It's difficult to navigate successfully, and if anything Michelle Roberts, or whoever needs to listen knees listening to the two of them, and they will get off this point to be set aside..
"the times" Discussed on Monocle 24: Section D
"And undelighted to say that I'm joined now by Dr Donna. She is the program director of graphic design at Camberwell. Chelsea and Wimbledon colleges of our donahue sent forward some. Topics perhaps the most timely one was about how we find our way back into the shops now. This is obviously just an issue around design, but I think for the first time in a long time, shopkeepers are having to think about how they signal space how they use their entrances and used their windows. What kind of role can designers play when it comes to getting the economy going and getting retailers back on the front line? Well I think it's been interesting exploring these spaces in the past three. I haven't stepped into the shops, because I don't Miss Shopping at all actually, but I have spent a considerable amount of time in waitress and other shops across the city, and I think that what is missing is actually that designer Lee thinking that you would expect you know how designers understand space, and what these different things on the floor, so these finals that you find on the floor are actually signaling to people so when you go to Tesco you actually look at the vinyl that's on the floor, and you're not sure what the symbol is telling. Telling you is that telling me to queue? This way is telling me to move in this direction, and you see this confusion amongst everybody in the store. What is missing here is design I. Think what's going on is that the visuals are very much what you would consider a lot of icons that for someone reading. It would say okay. This is quite straightforward, but actually it's not I think design plays a huge role in this especially with small shops. I find struggled a lot with the social distancing. There's a lot of products around and they. They just sort of had no time. No Guidance and they just put on the floor and just hope for the best by reducing the amount of people in the store, but it was quite stressful. Experience in terms of even with social distancing. There was still a lot of people there people to know how to navigate. The space design was very much missing within that experience and I think that it plays a huge role in terms of how we understand space particularly in these times. Maybe there's too much stuff in the shop, so designers can look. Look at a blueprint and say you know. Perhaps you move this here. He moved here. Move this here that way. You can maximize your space. And what about the Senate? What does it say? How do people read it? How are people actually using the space? So this type of user research that I think that the shops didn't even have time to do obviously and I think it's kind of no time to be snobbish I'm really happy that you mentioned tape as well because I think we all want the design solutions that people found to be. UNAMBIGUOUS and beautiful and directors in a way that is completely uncompromisingly perfect, but actually people are quite used to rubbing up against one another then not very used to going into shops, some shops, a quite small spaces, so I think a lot of it as you say is about. People taking the initiative and people doing things at any kind of golden rules, the if I were to draw on your theoretical knowledge of design in your in your great experience was the key to getting these messages across to people. Is it being utterly on ambiguous? Is it about making people smile sometimes? What advice do you have for people? A media restructuring that hold whole. Whole space. I think that we've been in this for quite some time. Now. I what I would have liked to see is an emphasis on how people are navigating the space and reiterating the way the space is configured. How are people responding to the Security Guard in the front tower? They responding to the two meter rule. How are they actually navigating the different aisles? Aisles and just to kind of conduct system that maybe doesn't make it as stressful. I think right now. The systems are stressful. Is there a way for us to add a certain amount of play may be I'm also kind of weary of that is this time I mean? There has been some quite clever things here and there but I just think that it's a very. Very sort of practical time, and what they need to do is just to ensure that people don't feel so overwhelmed when they come in the space, because it just feels like a haphazard solution that they've put together, and they're not really considering the next phase of it, you come into a shop and there's plastic everywhere and people are wearing all this gear and it's. It's not a great experience how to make that better. I'm not entirely sure right now and I'm not entirely sure that's. That's the main goal to me. I think the main goal of anyone working in spaces just to make that experience was already very stressful, less stressful as a considered space. I'm going to move on a little bit because we've got a few more topics to conduct. Grapple with but I. I think you've set the mark very high for complex questions for designers to solve. You mentioned the idea of corona drifting. which if you asked me to guess what it meant I? Don't think I'd get to what it does mean it's a new term on me, but the sense that lots of companies are producing. Shall We say far fetched ideas about how you can deal with the pandemic? Tell me. Me about the corona drifting why you think is worthy of discussion, so saw this article that a few people had posted and read through it. It's threatened by architect who got fed up of websites like design, boom and design. who were just I guess what she calls putting cheap mock-ups of cooled related design solutions, and these of course for for anyone who follows design press. They're sort of everywhere I. I think the author was just fed up with these ill considered solutions that people had put together really quickly and just creating mock-ups of and saying here's how we're going to solve the problem of social distancing and the idea is that you know these firms aren't really working at this point, so they're just kind of churning out this material to get PR and possible clients once Covid nineteen settles down. Quite an interesting thing to discuss because it sort of like a set of designers who never go past the first idea that they put down on paper, which as an educator myself as I always say, your first idea is your worst idea, so you really have to go through this process of developing ideas and thinking of the context, in which the project lives and so I think that this is the problem with Corrina Griffin is what's happening is everyone someone just has an idea that POPs in their head doesn't really consider anything puts together this small, a little render, and then pushes it through one of these websites. Just also made me think of this obsession. Designers with creating new things rather than looking APP. What is currently in place? Some of the examples you had like a Batman Shields. It was just kind of unreal that this is something that people are actually thinking about so that's.

"Wow. Yeah, such a cool earlier kind of just. Yes, he's basically the machine in this gigantic machine that makes no sense of a water mill. It's interesting, though because it's. Normally I feel like. The Simpsons also take a moment to talk about social stuff, but that's really just. They're like Oh. That's funny. When Charlie Chaplin's like machine. Let's do it even worse, a little bit more itchy and scratchy version of them. Yeah and that is not music. That Chaplin would pick out, so amy I mean. This has been a good conversation. Obviously, this is my favorite one. We heard from everybody the top episode about their. You know who they want on the list but I guess my question to you as we wrap this up is. Do you think all three needs to be on this list? We are always saying we don't need another restaurant. We don't need another war film. We don't need a scorsese. We don't need this. Do we need three chaplains? No No. No no no, no, no, no I'm just GONNA make myself say no a bunch of times to make it to it. I mean it every time I watch. A Chaplin Film I'm like this is the greatest film that's ever been created. And I feel that way about so much of them, but. I want to try to stick with modern dies. Like maybe never showed me another chaplain film again so I can just stick with modern times. This is the first chaplain film I ever loved is the first time I ever saw the I'm surprised that it's actually this low on the list because I would have assumed if you'd asked me, you know before I started the show, which chaplain rated the highest modern times I mean to me feels like the touch down to the fact that it's in the eighties and really bewildering. Czar. Yeah the I I think this is film, you know this is the film that I think expresses everything he really wanted to say. I do really love the great dictator, but between all of them I would I would pick modern times out of everything. Because it's just it's all here. It's all here and it's wonderfully done, and it's Hilarious I will. I laughed out loud myself here on the cavs, yeah. That's what we're going to do. Another film that has a little bit of a romance and uplifting our last visit with Frank Capra next week for a movie called, it happened one night. was never seen and just based on how I've been enjoying Frank Capra in this podcast. I'm so excited to get into a little bit. But. We have a call to action for you for next week's episode. There are very few romantic comedies on this list, and I think there's something so engaging about them. What's a romantic comedy? You would like to see on this list I think. Let's take Harry met Sally off this debate because we've talked about that a lot I want to hear some other ones other films that really pop for you that you know that feel special and unique I think that this list definitely is missing that genre. So. Hit us with your best ones. Give us a call. At seven, four, seven, six, six, six, five, eight, two, four, seven, four, seven, six, six, five, eight, two, four, and. Amy.

Yeah, that's true. That is another. You're not exactly sure what he's trying to say like. was that the only place he could think of to have an actor of color in the film or a and he was just like well. They'd probably be being sent off to prison in this world. Yeah, that's what. He does he does I mean he does literally make that character the butt of the joke. The joke in that scene is that the right is really bumpy, and he keeps putting his, but in her face. Yeah. Interesting I mean. Yeah I just I was. Really fascinated by. This idea that he was so worldly, but yet there are a couple of things in this film better incredibly UNWORLDLY, you know they're. They're incredibly kind of small minded. And you know to think of their this. Say Lazy, essential casting. They said so central casting would make it. Look and I'm not gonNA question what the stereotypes are right, yeah! Or creating the stereotypes I guess he's creating stereotypes. especially. When the film that you're making is making such a statement, you know such a statement about. People you know in how they are just a part of this larger machine, I, also WANNA get into. How I feel this film. And I think the issue. A lot of the Times of Charlie Chaplin is. It feels repetitive. It feels to me like his films. While amazing to watch kind of we go back to similar like set pieces and here the set pieces just continue to change, and they heighten and I didn't feel. The way I felt in previous Chaplin Films Are Mike Okay I get what's going on here. That's funny. Sure it was more than. Just a I. He told the story through many different ways, and I don't know if that was because he was forced to write it so this it had more of a A discernible story so the story was moving forward to just arrest in funny. Moments right because if the rest of the films and city lights definitely is getting towards this, but the other ones kind of just like exist is like okay. Here's a scenario. Let's do like six or seven fun things in this world I don't know this one just caught me and I'm sure there are chaplain people out there going God. Damn, you shut up. That's not true, but that's my impression of it as I feel like this movie really. Kind of deals, something moves it away. Deals with another thing moves it away and like you're. You're getting so many different locations so many different places I. Just found myself constantly engaged by that. I. Hear what you're saying. Because one thing with Chaplin in the trump is that the tramp doesn't change personality your the. TRAMP is a character who like Mickey Mouse Mickey Mouse personality. The trump enters is so we all though the mouse is a great personality. Yeah, what his personality again? Here I'm saving I have pants on. His. Personality and Gun Jin are two of the hardest personalities to lay down. It's like I. Know who those characters are. I cannot tell you how they would react in any given situation. I'll take Donald Duck Edey. Have the like we know that the trump I appreciate that the tramps character in sort of hard ball that he is, he's almost like a bullying golic. He rolls through a scene and things happened to him, don't he gets pushed in a gutter or knocks down pins? You can't really tell, but he just keeps going on. He doesn't. He doesn't really get permanently dented. He's always plucky. I think that's one of the things admire the most about trump is. He never has a lot of self. Pity for himself, and he doesn't ask for the audiences pathos. TRAMP is sitting down in the cafeteria table in prison, and I want to hear this music actually sitting down because I think it is a good way of chaplain using music to underscore plot. Zang like you can literally here in this music that the tramp is a character who is out of step with everybody..

"Over time you know. This is part of mindfulness. It's it does help you to release some of the thoughts not overnight but over time releasing some of the thoughts so that you can help try to choose better thoughts to focus on like I'm going. Okay now I'm going to think about this But so we don't have to believe everything we think and I think that's really important because we do have a tendency like I feel this way. It makes me think this way. It's gotta be true it doesn't have to be And and it does give us back a little bit more control of ourselves. So that's where three different there's two biases that really pop in. I think are so important that deficit bias we are more heavily influenced by negatives that we hear than any positive information or data that we get and think about it. The everyone always remembers the person who criticizes us or one little criticism when thing that went wrong much more than we think about all the Times people say oh good job or you know that was very you know. And and that's deficit by stats. That's not a flaw in us. That's deficit bias. So there's a benefit while knowing that so that you can try not to be as heavily influenced by the negativity but it's also seeking what's actively seeking okay. What's right or what's good at this moment in time? And rather than focusing on what's wrong or bad and the in our brain we have the particular activating system. Just a fancy way of saying it's like when it's like when you're if you're pregnant everywhere you look you see pregnant women.

The slaughterhouses are essential and must stay. Open the EPA isn't particularly unusual. It's been used a lot in the past especially during wartime efforts. Usually it's used to ramp up. Production of munitions planes are ships but this self-declared wartime president is invoking the EPA for sausage. Yeah it does seem like PP novel.

"It is now time for this week in Food History. Serious as you right now. A lot of people are planning windowsill gardens trying to regrow whatever like food scraps? They can on their kitchen counter to lessen their reliance on grocery stores for food. We've all seen it on instagram. We've seen it on twitter. My apartment has a tiny little patio. And I've already got herbs squash and tomatoes out there but this idea of planting more food in times of crisis has it's very modern roots unintended in World War One so during World War One tons of agricultural land in Europe turned into these battlefields where they were totally destroyed and all the farmers were drafted into service. That's their whole food. Supply chain was disrupted and what followed was an awful famine across the whole of your regardless of what side? Anybody was on so here in the. Us We were called to step up. Sore government could export more food tour allies in March nineteen seventeen weeks before the US entered the war. Charles Land Three pack a famous millionaire. Who made his fortune in timber? What a weird way to make your fortune but anyway. He organized the National War Garden Commission to encourage Americans to contribute to the war effort by planting fertilizing harvesting and storing their own fruits and vegetables. So that more food like I said could we exported and citizens were urged utilize all the idle land. That was an already engaged. In agricultural production. This meant schools company ground so like all the business parks whatever the equivalent of that was in the one thousand nine hundred seventeen parks backyards and any and all available vacant lots. This commission turned out tons of propaganda with posters newspaper ads and pamphlets everywhere calling on Americans to quote so the seeds of victory and walked people through how they should be growing and harvesting all the staff at the Federal Bureau of Education Initiated A. Us School Army Garden to mobilize children to enlist as quote soldiers of the soil. Which is really Kinda cute and to make the most of all the land of schools so the kids were learning how to garden but they were also providing this resource and people went fucking nuts with it. They were growing so much food that the garden commission start putting out more propaganda showing people how to can dry and preserve all the extra food that they were growing so nothing went to waste. More than five million gardens were planted during the war and that resulted in more than one point. Two billion dollars additional foodstuff that was added to our nation with the US population at that time around one hundred billion people. That's a hell of a lot of extra food but you know there's another war coming when food rationing started in Britain in World War. Two the US again called on citizens to step up implant more victory gardens when food rationing started here later in nineteen forty two roughly fifteen million Families Planet Victory Gardens by Nineteen Forty Four. That number was closer to twenty million doom. Yeah all these gardens produced roughly eight million tons of food which was the equivalent of more than forty percent of all the fresh fruits and vegetables consumed in the United States during that time. That is impressive. Isn't that amazing. Yeah so you know. This is all to say that none of us knows what's going to be happening with the US food chain. There's more than enough food to go around. But with grocery stores and farmers markets getting more stressful and dangerous places for us. Maybe now is the time to plant some kind of victory garden of your own like even in these examples. It's not that people back then necessarily had a ton more space either. So they're saying that they took like Boxes and they put him on the roofs of their apartments. And they would grow food up there or you know on a fire escape or however you can do it. It's not about space. It's about effort and you can make it happen like my patio. I can't even lay down on it but I'm still producing. Your patio is the size of a large coffee table. Yeah exactly and I'm making it work. I'm feeding barreds myself. I got all kinds of shit going on out there and if you do that during these terrible wars then I feel like Americans in general. We don't need a pamphlet for the government. We have the fucking Internet. Bright like we can ask professionals time questions. We're not out there. Trouble-shooting are shit like we got this. So guys plant some fucking food. Zucchini is so easy to grow. Tomatoes are crazy easy to grow herbs. You'll have in a fucking minute like why not just add a little bit extra something so you don't have to go to the grocery store for every little thing be like. Oh we have four Zucchini that we can make into pancakes you like that. I'm just saying is victory gardens. They it's time for a comeback fruits.

How many jackets jacket you put on your docket as the segment allows. I'm at home. Stop my backdrop mom. Please the backtrack on assist Green. Up here looks weird. Hannibal really appreciate you being on the show. I'm glad you're just so comfortable here on live television on. Espn and on. I take you really brought to you. And congratulations on making the G. League following that trend skipping college you'll be the oldest player in the G. League but that's okay you know Bye Hannibal Thank You. Kindly be safe. We appreciate our guy. I mean we think No one thinks more Dak Prescott than Jerry Jones and myself No Mike When he signed on for Hardaway signed on was back. Prescott and You know it's just getting it done. I mean the bigger these deals get hearing all of always found that to be the case in business. The bigger the dollars get the harder they get. We believe in our track record or getting player signed. I totally believe. We'll get doc signed at the right number. That's good for Dak. Good for the cowboys. Good for this team right. That was Stephen Jones with sap. Last night emphatic. That a deal will get done with doc. Louis riddick joins US Louis. Great to see you but southern Steve. I'm starting with you here because you're cowboys are saying all the right things but they're still no deal happening. So what's really going on? Well what's really going on Molly and Louis and Max Kelvin's that these guys? I'm talking about Jerry. Stephen Jones have engaged in conduct business practices that have made them successful monetarily speaking certainly in marketing and obviously overall business but when it comes to winning football games these are the kind of things that have gotten in their way repeatedly and this is just the latest example of their foolhardiness. Now let's analyze this situation for what it is Louis Riddick. 'cause I understand that? You're keenly aware of these things even more so than. I am last time I checked in. The world is the quarterback position. You don't pay that guy yet but to play the running back ahead problems in the past gave your bad salacious headlines. Compromised Dallas Cowboy brand that we know love what happens you give him. Fifty million guaranteed nine five million dollar contract all depend demarcus Lawrence. You Got Him. All right. You Pay Jalen Smith. I'm not opposed to any of that stuff. You took care of him. Yup Grad cornerback position. Your side a bunch of dudes but to take care of everybody but the quarterback. Oh by the way. Got Rid of that head coach. Who played the role in his ineffectiveness? Arrived you WANNA point to what it did. Last year. I mean group of forty nine hundred two yards through for third touchdown. Just eleven interceptors career-wise complete sixty five point eight percent of his bats and he's taking it to the playoffs two years out of the walk. He's got a winning record. All right and by the way the season before that allows sticks games. If I remember correctly I believe that particular season that was about fifty six times. I remember correctly somehow someway Jerry Jones and Steven Jones continue to ask this young man for the house. This man continues to show up. He's a leader. He's a model citizen. He represents the Franchisees. The face of the franchise the whole Colin Kaepernick situation. He marched locks that with Jerry Jones when that could have been a dicey situation. He didn't sit up there and disrupt in it. Think this man has been a model citizen. He has before it hasn't been as that. The defense didn't show up. You GotTa Rookie Offense Coordinator last year the previous year. You got him sex with a six dollars Tom. Tommy you have asked this young man to step up and represent this credit todd and then all of a sudden you come to us and you say you're gonNA take care of him. Damage your might do it but should have been taken care of them. And as far as I'm concerned about them Dak Prescott. I gotTA modifying attitude with you for the future. I don't know how good I- relationship is going to be moving so it but I think I think he'll get over it eventually. Once that check comes in was that check the. Da Patrick Mahomes. But he wants to get paid like. He's Patrick Mahomes. But that creaking sound you're hearing is the cowboys getting ready to fold lettuces. I told you this is going to happen if you look at the Joneses. What is Jerry Jones said about? Every every one of the best deals he ever made. He said all of my best deals. I was told overpaid at the time. He didn't say I was told I over paid at the time. Because Jerry Jones does not make his money on the margins he will fold in that kind of scenario. He makes his money with pink. When you buy the Dallas cowboys and takes a big imagination. Not like Chintzy on the margins so so I always. And that's why they folded all these player negotiations. I keep bringing up Zeke. You spent the fourth overall pick in the draft on them. That's an investment of resources for sure. And then he if anything outperformed where you draft him at least at least matched where you drafted gave you a premium of other other. Guys were drafted later. Lived up to it. We're running your offense through them for a while then. It came time to pay him. They didn't want to because it really wasn't time to pay him yet. Even Z can hold held.

"Is there robbed or in a long time? Nba Executive. Who played a key? Role in assembling. That Dream Team explained that he never talked to Michael Jordan about Isiah before the break. We just heard Stephen. A. And Jay Williams say that magic played a key role in Isaiah. Not Being on the Dream Team next Kellerman. The floor is yours. Well there are two things one. I said really what this comes down to the late news inclusion on the team because they chose to take a collegiate athlete and later was the most famous and most successful of the collegiate players at the time. That's really who Isaiah should've gone instead of you. Guys are just insisting that that. There's no competition. No comparison between Isaiah in Stockton. In fact that's very close now. Ultimately I agree with you by a hair that it's Zeya 'cause I think his peak he was a little closer to a dominant superstar. You could build a team around Isaiah little I prefer Stockton at a much longer. Career at his peak was nearly as good any many more great seasons than Isaiah did so at doubling his assist total guard. Carl Malone Scorer. Okay but I had guys come in the Pistons team. Would you compare that Karl Malone that that's not the point just having another superstar player is not going to inflate your assist totals by one hundred percent? In addition he was a much more efficient scorer and a better defender by you know he was he was all MBA. I defense team a lot of times. I say yeah. It wasn't the point is this and also all the ATM. Stockton made many more. But the point is this Stockton Isaiah ultimately. I've I'd have to also go with Isaiah by air. The issue with Jordan magic versus Jordan is what has also been reported. Is that Michael Jordan at the sign off on the final roster so however you get there and again later instead of Isaiah really. That's the one on swap out Jordan at the side off on the final roster so if he's signing no one and not on the team ultimately what is that of the Max you know On the case and please give Michael Jordan. I WANNA feel a camera for this. I want to be on camera for this. You know when we talk about boxing. I know what thing too about boxing but I also noticed step to hell back when Mac starts talking boxes because they are levels to this okay and when you sit up there and you just want to summarily ignore the fact that a vast majority of Stockton success as a point guard. Nba is primarily. Because Karl Malone and J Briggs up. There was no calm alone. Under Detroit Pistons Offensively. There was a pick and roll being run to that degree with a John Stockton -fensive proficiency was directly related to calm alone. You just want to ignore that this is moments when I feel your basketball court should be strapped and you should be putting a vote in locked away until the basketball season's over stuff like that. That's not point. Would you argue with that? That the president to Actually League Max Max. We let you speak. We did let you speak the only making off the only reason we brought up stockton with Isaiah. We know that what you said about Christian late we get that. Nobody's disputing that. Max but you brought up stockton compared to ask Zia. Anybody were to honor. Those is yours. I can't believe you missed it with those beetlejuice is. I can't believe that you could sit up here saying buy stock style. Stock this Jay. I'll give it to her. Shot Stockton Shoot Wide. Open jump shots. Stockton was not looking to pass almost all the time so a lot of times people laid off him. He got a lot more open and uncontested shots than you would realize because people were stuck descending upon Carl Malone. All of those things factor. I've never had that luxury. Never had that luxury but that would be bad there are other talk not not there are addicting role partners with superstars in the NBA in history. I understand where you would inflate it a little bit. By the way ultimately I'll take Isaiah by a little but that does not literally eleven all. Nba League that does not explain all NBA defensive selection. That does not explain open jumped out. There does not explain that much more proficient. Go Ahead J. Shooting the ball and to that a few if you want hold on hold on hold on. Stockton was averaging cable half decade. Go ahead Jack's good. Where where would you rank? Where would you rank? Karl Malone as release a greatest all NBA players. Would it be top? Twenty five top fifty five power. He's a top five power forward. Say for me. I think he's more than five. I think he's through okay Tim so he's tough. Talk about how important Kevin McHale. Okay I kept McKay and let me explain. Arkley and melodious close Novitsky Garnett milona closed a Lotta guys close okay. I'm not going out direction. A when I'm saying to you is from somebody who's played the position. Do you know how hard that was? And that wasn't the way guys player now. We see a ton of PR. Every single possession the best combination at that was stocked alone. Because why because Carl Malone can knock down at fifteen twenty footer like that so I was on the block. He forced double teams and elbow every single time so every time every time. John came off that screen the big was. You have to stay with Carmelo. You couldn't just help. I'm not saying that that that doesn't take away from how Rafik John Stockton is John. Stockton is Great. Jonathan's great all fame like Isaiah. Thomas had Karl Malone on his team to run that set every single time you'd be talking about a different stats for as he was doing it without one of the top. Three top five greatest power to ever play the game to sit there and say that. That's a little bit of plain agree. Board Little Hood did Isaiah. Thomas have a great coaching great teammates. Yes or NO DENNIS FROM YEAH. It was a great hustler player. Joe Dumars was up. Big Time Guy Defensive player knocking on nobody in that team. Compared to Carl Malone wire nobody came compared with one. Excuse me that is one player. Guys that does not describe fourteen tossed describe. It also doesn't describe just one great player teammate. Multiple Sixty win seasons finals appearances back to that. They took the bull six games at a time. Where the bold talk knowing looks better to go round you guys talking about Utah you what are you talking about? The fact that a matter is you. Don't I'm walking? It's four game against the Utah Jazz match. We we let you speak and you want to Basketball Gardens and we let you do. Most of the talking and John Stockton was the was the office. I just finished telling you when it comes to boxing. I'll lay off did not. I did say that in other words. What I'm saying is often every time you open your mouth about basketball. It's clear this. Hr expertise talking about all right. I've been Carmello the office between those two. That's what their offense was predicated on They had Thomas add. It wasn't about them offensively Thomas Office. It was stopped. The two Maloney Uta Isaiah. Thomas was surrounded by a bunch of defenders Hustle. Guys rough riders. And what have you? He was the face of that franchise and the face of the office. He was the number one option. There has never been a game let alone a season where John Stockton was the number one option. It's ridiculous or giving the evidence you are giving the evidence for Isaiah Thomas which I subscribed to ultimately got him by the hair he was lying. And how you guys are acting like Stockton's not in the conversation. Why was it stockton made five all NBA first teams defensively averaging three steals a game? That also Karl Malone he was shooting by the way stockton could shoot Code Pink. Let me it. Somebody's telling you. How Great Lead. Franson elite elite steals players one of the elite steals players in the NBA. Was Alan Iverson. Alan Iverson will be the first to tell you he could guard anybody. He had to take chances still in the boss still act. You know the perfect implication of what five minutes. There's a first teams. He was always all all defensive. I say these sales leader we couldn't do. We didn't play deal where we talk about with thing. They had some it there. Thomas was leaked offenders. One by Molly's.

"Ziprecruiter DOT COM Slash Meena Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so I'm GonNa read you a couple of facts about about this game and I say read because I obviously don't have them memorized this matchup. I don't think so dramatic. I I like it suspense over here. I'm dying right now. Feed me the stats mean. Oh boy okay. This is the first divisional a match up between teams that are three and our better since two thousand four. It's been fifteen years since this has happened your God I was trying to. I've been stepping on a lot of the pregnant pauses. I wanted to do and really build this up because I genuinely shocked since they have seized was formed. It's the four-time that this division is even had to three teams forget that they've been matching up right. last time was in two thousand thirteen with the Patriots and the dolphins how things have changed but but but this is this is a beast mode matchup. It's a pair of beasts. Oh defenses. I've been hammering how much I love both of these defenses really since the summer and they have not disappointed in any anyway I mean we should start with the Patriots defense. Because what they're doing is potentially historic. It's I guess for the Patriots who began the dynasty as a team largely led by defense that Tom Brady stepped into and ushered to that first super bowl seeing the dominance across the board their number one and everything right now everything they are number one in actual everything right now and they're secondary. Stefan Gilmore and we've known he's been great but as having one of those real ascension type seasons it seems yes I mean so last touchdown was the AFC championship blue. Cheese is your score more points on defense. I think going into the season I look I I remember you can go back and check the I said. I thought there would be good. I didn't think they would be this this good. I mean the funny thing about the Patriots Defense last year. Mike is they actually weren't good. During the regular season they were awesome in the playoffs but during the day like turned it up in a big away they actually finish sixteenth delay last season and they were really bad this season before and when you look at the changes in the roster. I don't think I thought they would continue to be good because I I still like a lot of talent coaching obviously secondary but you know they lost. Trey flowers been okay and added Michael Bennett I mean Jamie Collins suddenly is like living his best life again i. I don't think anyone just again based on the personnel moves could event is depicted this no the Jamie Collins thing the more I look at it seems like one of the all-time finesse jobs of all time climbed by New England who let that Guy Walking get paid by Cleveland because they weren't going to do it and now he comes back and performing largely how you would expect a guy that wants received a large payday play pay to play that position all the belly rubs in the world all the plays in the backfield. It's been incredible. He's been electric. I think going into this year. We'll talk with the other side of the poll on moment but you would have thought okay secondary is good. Maybe the pass rush will struggle they're currently second and sack. Gratiot Vine Jacksonville they have nine players in their front seven with at least three past disruptions. It's it's free and then we didn't didn't even play in the last game. He had a baby or his wife had a baby or his partner for mom. Yes so Jalen Ramsey. My favorite thing is a he's got all these ailments of having a baby himself and then to go but in any case yeah so. It's just obscene what they're doing and then you know. I like this bills offense and we can talk about sort of what I liked about them. I've loved a few things but they have not been confronted with a defense like this so far no and I think the biggest problem with the Patriots defense that it posed for so many people is kind of amorphous right like you've got guys that we all just described it and this was true. During the playoff run what we saw as their pass rush came alive it was his design in the middle it was games and stunts in addition to bringing extra players with a lot of guys around the same body type like Jamie Collins Jonathan Simon Kyle Van Noy. You've you've got all these sort of DNA outside linebacker body types that populate the middle of this defense and make you work extra hard up front to make sure all right if I'm setting protection yeah. I've got to identify the guys that we're going to call the down linemen the known rushers you've got to track all these bodies all over the place so they have so many veteran players that are so savvy. Kyle Van Noy probably the poster child of probably the best guy in that group upfront who can do so many of those different things that make them a problem. Especially cleaners pass rush so the cliche about that group is in the Patriots in general is they take your weapon. The the bills best weapon is in my opinion Josh Allen but not necessarily as a passer. I think that the Patriots are going to they're going to sell out to stop him from running but I would not be surprised if they spy on him in a pretty big way absolutely and with the personnel they've got that is I think an easier task because of all bodies just described right. Yes absolutely I mean so watching China's last bills game Mike. I was super impressed by Allen in the first half. Actually I think I tweeted like wow josh islands making a lot. The short passes he did not make last year. He's always been used a monster athlete. you'd have just truly truly rambler but but he makes some bad decisions he throws too hard is touches always perfect especially in the short intermediate stuff but in the first half gail over the last game I actually I was really impressed by him. In the second half he turned into Hero Ball Josh Allen Mattel the bengals got back into it and you know he he makes some of the mistakes that you saw him making his rookie season not taking sacks throwing it away into coverage and I think if he can limit some of those bad decisions coupled with this defense. They can really stay in it. Yeah I think that's that's the thing and we saw this. The way they loaded up off season was sort of designed to marry with this defense in bringing over the coal Beazley's of the world guys that you could get it Zeh Jones. We know the guy that John Brown who came over also all of these things to try and make sure that you just make lay ups in this offense. That's what most of the design seems to be a and when they're looking downfield is when Josh Allen starts to scramble starts to roll out. Those seem to be the only spots. I've seen where a lot of the deep plays happened when everything breaks down and I really liked the offense itself. I think Brian debut. This is the second year as a coordinator. I believe from Obama. You know he's done a great job. I noticed a lot more creativity misdirection in this last game. then Baldwin tweeted heap he plotted early down pass rate to this morning and you people would be shocked. I think to hear that the bills were ranked third the cardinals and the chiefs on on on passing on early down which we honored twitter love so doing a lot of really good things. I think they've got a limited mistakes and I think if they do because this defense is really good. They have a shot at this now. The new wing of I mean on the other side of the ball I guess the New England offense has looked unstoppable but there's some injury issues. Obviously the offensive line is he's banged up. Josh Gordon Eshelman about her to various times during the last game that said I fully really do not have any debt. We say all that is like a caveat of nothing that we believe is really. GonNa Change about this but I guess that's kind of the ultimate testament to England. Though is what did we say that the first couple of weeks where you had no rob Gronkowski and so you saw team run fewer no more no tight end sets and one game they did almost all of last year you saw in the last game a ton of bolden at running back like this you on the field a ton of time for them allowing them to do some mm sneaky things in protection because that offensive lines kind of banged up right now my large adult son. Isaiah winners succumb to yet another injury I mean it just devastatingly said friend of the show Marshall Newhouse out there getting a job for them at tackle certainly excited for him but you've got to kind of masks some of those right now in this patriots offense does that better than anyone they they do better than anyone but obviously that changes the nature of the offense right when you really can't count on them in the same way. It's it's. It's funny whereas solar earlier like God God bless Marshall for landing there like what a what a wonderful place to be an offensive lineman a new England but but the the running game has weirdly not been good Sony Michelle your other small your small. He's averaging two point four yards per carry now now. It's been interesting. I I think a lot of it's on him but I did. I was curious. I was kind of digging into it. He's he's averaging one point six seven yards before contact versus. REXBURG has three point five four obviously some of that is in the usage of it but it feels feels like some of it is on him but a lot of on the block as well well. A lot of it is a change in the way they've used him so I I noticed it and I wrote it down when I was watching this last one now part of this is the injuries that the Patriots have sustained at fullback which unfortunately Devlin going to be out for them. Skip point now for a while but we remember last year it was really Sony Michelle and there fullback tied to the hip together and what you saw in this last game was them touchdown. That's only Michelle. Scored was from the gun. You saw a few more of those sprinkled in addition to him quite frankly just not getting the volume that were used to and so. I think it's this year trying to make it a little less predictable with how they're gonNA use it. Some of it we mentioned is personnel in that and and using the running back passing his extension of the run game there you saw that a lot with rex burkhead an bolden both them getting more looks out of the backfield but I think for Sony. It's going to be interesting to see how that used to change because last year so much of it was that to back with the fullback one tight end personnel grouping where they made it obvious and they remastered the obvious in that year exactly yeah I. I think that this patriots offense is going to probably probably try to run it a fair amount on the bills defense because the secondary is so good I'm not not necessarily that means. They're going to be testing them. Deepen on the outside a lot especially especially with white it's funny. Davies White and I earlier alluded to how underrated the rest of the secondary is a high Jordan. We don't talk about them enough and how incredible all of us DB's coach Sean McDermott is white hasn't had massive like you know turnover numbers but he's barely targeted quarterbacks. The backs have just stayed far away from him the last couple of years and I personally I kind of expect New England to do the same yeah I think I mean again in addition to on the other side of the Cliche of taking away what you do best New England's going to adjust and just not give your best player a chance to impact the game like that hat now putting it on the bills front seven do it do so at your own risk but I think we see plenty of those running backs. We cy just again. It just seems like they always adjust what they need to do. Even with the injuries outside I think they find a way to sort of dink and dunk their way through this one yeah right. There aren't really significant weaknesses on this bills defense speaking of by the way not showing up in the numbers yesterday. I tweeted about Aaron Donald Pass rush rate which is hilarious. Go look at it. Pass rusher win rate is a statistic are ESPN stats and Info folks come up with and and they have the on on the other side of the ball as well but I was.

"At times trubisky would still make enough for you would make a couple of those really great throws and then he would make plays with his feet. I think to keep drives live and sort or just hold on one thing. I noticed two of our this year. Mike an I regretfully did not pull up the numbers but I'm pretty sure they corroborate what I'm thinking. He's not really running as much. I wonder what that's about yeah. It's interesting to you thought because we see and I think an interesting com for this. Josh Allen who I know we're GONNA get to at the bills you see a lot of designed runs for Josh Allen taking advantage of the gifts and I'm surprised the bears offense hasn't made more use of that with Mitch just because it's something something he is gifted at. He's truly gifted as a runner and when you're trying to build the rest of it you figure they would have leaned on that a little more. You know I think in the Washington Shington game. It looked a lot to me more like let yes. He didn't run but you definitely saw what you saw. Last season which Nagy had a lot of success scheming guys open making things easy for trubisky helping him diagnose defenses. I believe with the assistance scheme. lot of quick passes a lot of cross. There's some stuff you saw last year where he just doesn't have to do as much but you know he. He's clearly clearly the limiting factor on this team which continues to have one of the best defense in the NFL and I feel like what is he's in your three right near three of them into with Nagy. Is it okay my question to you before we get to this matchup and whether they can beat the vikings because it's not when you have this defense you can win any game. NPR's cheaper if he continues to play at this level to the rest of the season. What do you do you this offseason. That's the problem right is his year threes. You've got him another year and then the fifth year option potentially which we know how cost cost effective give that tends to be for teams but I have to imagine it correct me if I'm wrong. It seems like Matt Nagy is starting to show frustration. I it seems he's like it seems like you're starting to see a guy who recognizes all right and we heard rumblings of this throughout training camp in the offseason that this wasn't necessarily getting to the place in year to in this offense that Matt Nagy. I think expected it to be so I I just don't know of teams are in the business of even now with you know the rookie wage scale already already being almost a decade into effect if teams are in the business of pull and plugs of pulling the plug on a rookie before that you know four years up right yeah. What's I mean it from a cost perspective. Obviously you know having a quarterback in a contract is the most advantageous thing in the NFL but your window with his defense is now and so oh it gets and they got their weapons. You know they got poor. Robinson Ra like I I. It's just got to be so frustrating because I remember number at the after the playoffs last year. I said you know if they had just gotten average to above average. quarterback play seemed goes to the Super Bowl and bears fans. Were really upset with me because Jersey had that last quarter which was really good right but I believe that I watched this team and I believe that I feel like man. Stevens is so good as coaches so good. These weapons are so good if if they just had like a again they don't even need like a great quarterback and I look at them. Mike against his vikings team. which is I think a bit more balanced and I don't know the Vikings? Look better to me then I can do. I think well first off the vikings rushing attack. I mean what Dalvin seven cook. Finally healthy has done on that offense has been nothing short of spectacular and both of these. I mean I think you look at their offense and say so far as talented they are kirk cousins and has been the limiting factor for them now and not it's not to the extreme at times yeah yeah no. I think you're right at times obviously had that when real bad game you know he has had to do so little that it's almost hard to evaluate. I think Alvin Cook has been incredible he's he's averaging approximately forty five yards per attempt which doesn't seem tenable. That's a proclamation. Don't do my math. This is going to be a challenge now and this defense for him. I think some of the statistics in some of the things that the Vikings are doing on offense are not tenable. I think he just like five times but specifically so cook. A lot of his carries are coming on first down on but he's been extremely successful. He's averaging over ten yards a carry on second long. That's probably not tenable yeah well even as much as we come into see me love the marriage of him and outside zone and Kubiak. It's great but like that's just not a thing you can keep up and I do wonder Mike you know that comes down to Earth a little bit and look he is an amazing run and amazing talent whether this passing offense can compensate yeah I. I think that's GonNa be an interesting part of what they've had there because you're right. It hasn't been a large sample size of the passing offense in two thousand nineteen. We certainly seen what kirk cousins and Theon in digs did last year. You've got Rudolph Irv Smith Junior at tight end there so it's not like you're short on weapons. We just haven't seen the used the probably the chief concern and we saw us some of this manifest itself against Falcons defense that wasn't as strong on the edges so you could get a Lotta those outside zone rushing attempts but grady jared on the inside gave Garrett bradberry barrier and that young interior all they could handle and it's not like Akiem Hicks is GonNa make life any easier. The difference is you've got Leonard Floyd and Khalil Mack on the outside who are going to be able to hold up on that edge a lot better. You've got a faster linebacking core. They're going to have to like you're just not going to be able to rip off yards like that. Against this defense I should I think Hicks is play but he did missed practice. Yes Wednesday so you know. He got hurt in the last one but I think he's GonNa. I think he's GonNa play and Yeah I think you're right but but you know I continue to believe this team is strong playoff contender if not for the division for the wild card because they're so balanced because this defense so so far has not regressed from how they're playing at the end of last season. They had a very uneven season last year. I thought they were talented but thin in some spots spots but that said you know like guys like Harrison Smith who honestly didn't look great at a lot of times last year. He's looked incredible. Obviously in ninety crushed it. had a pick and then Eric Hendricks another guy who jumped out to me in that last game the linebacker their linebacking core has looked fast again like for for you know the most simple analysis possible but when this defense was at its best certainly you had an efforts in griffin from that slowly coming back into form obviously dealt with a lot there deal hunters really been the man there last year and and still going into this year but that linebacking corps was the difference Prince when they were great a couple of years ago and it seems to be back in that form again yeah every in the past Russia's there the second roads is another guy who had who struggled a lot last season listen at times Xavier Rosen and he's looked better spots and we'll see again very early they just. They look very balanced so we'll see again like I. I'm very curious to to see this. I don't think trubisky's and have a lot of luck against his defense but I am not that confident. The Vikings things offense as currently constituted the way they've been playing football is going to shred Chicago's very good defense either and I think this game could be a little bit of a grind fest. I I'm taking the Vikings though yeah I'm taking the Vikings as well definitely hammering the under in this one by the way I it just worth noting because I had this as we talk about the bears defense defense and some of the parts that were productive did underrated before shot at the Ha Ha Clinton dix coming off from Washington revenge games. Yes he was great. That's a great great point. Yes SHADAW WE'RE GONNA talk about Patriots bills but first hiring can be a slow process cafe L..

"Deep breaths, and think about the deep slices and the exchange students penis. I make eye contact with Mrs. Jones, smile and say I'm ready to begin for the next two minutes I. I dazzled the class and Mrs Jones talking about what I had learned for my summer, the funeral home, no one else in class at a job or a presentation that was even remotely this interesting. Now the last minute of my presentation as where things went a little sideways, I could tell some of my classmates were losing interest in the daily operations of a funeral homes, so with about forty five seconds left. I told my class the most interesting thing I did this summer. On Saturday morning I was called out to a crime scene, a foreign exchange student from the community college was murdered, and his body was left on third and lake, right across from the hot and fresh where we got our launch from today his face was crushed, and he was stabbed seventy seven times in the body and head Mrs Jones crosses her arms, while the rest of the students stare with their mouth Gabe. They're wondering where I'm going with this. Why haven't crossed the inappropriate line yet? So I'll keep pushing I take a beat and say the man's pants were pulled down around his ankles, and his penis and testicles were severely mutilated. Everyone is just looking at me now I thought it was killing it, but I guess everyone is just in shock. Probably should've left the genital stuff out. It's so quiet. I'm looking at the class. The class is looking at me. It's only a couple of seconds, but it feels like forever. Oh No, they think a Weirdo! Get him back. I glanced out of my hand Star Wars that's it mentioned star, wars and Wenham back without thinking. I blurted out the first thing that came to mind Oh and I also felt up Amanda. Why in the back row of STAR WARS THE PHANTOM MENACE? There was an audible gasps in the room. Not Quite the reaction I expected considering. I just namedrop the biggest movie of the Summer Mrs Jones didn't even say anything. She just pointed to the door and never seen her look that disgusted before. It was awesome. Needless to say my father and I had a very long, and at times stern discussion about what's appropriate to share about the funeral home and one isn't. Hope. I learned my lesson.

"the times" Discussed on My Funeral Home Stories
"The circle of cars and trucks surrounding are seeing the crowd of officers. That were near the body disperse. Until it's just Lindsey myself and the officer that brought us back to the body. Everyone just vanished. It's eerily quiet now. I've been a little too busy slipping on my heavy duty blue surgical gloves to take a look at the body. Well that's not entirely true. I haven't taken a look at the body because I'm terrified of what I was about to see. I'm thirteen. I don't have any experience with genital mutilation so I'm not sure how I'll respond seeing it up close. It doesn't really sound like my cup of tea. I hope I don't faint when I get up. Close I've fallen blood once my gloves. Her on the stretcher has been lowered. Lindsey grabs disaster pouch and we walked closer to the body. She throws me a small water. Plastic out of pocket and says put these on their shoe coverings. Lindsey watches me. Slip THEM OVER MY LEATHER SOLED Steve Madden Lace Up. Cap Does and tells me you don't want to get anything on your shoes and take it home with you. Your dog will lick the blood off the souls. What Yak given the amount of blood leaking out of this man's body on the pavement? I'm glad she brought these. I don't want my dog lapping up. This guy's blood off my shoes. Carter's a good way. He wouldn't mess with them. I think seeing all the blood around the body I think to myself. How are they going to clean this up? Surely they can't just leave it here once we take the body right. I'm standing over the body with Lindsey. Now our feet covered in plastic or both in his blood. There's a faint chemical smell coming off the blood or the body. Although it's barely cutting through the smell of the cheeseburgers which smells less appetizing. The closer I get to the body. This is my first look at our foreign exchange student friend and the site just about knocked me out. I exhale sharply. Lindsey looks at me concerned I take in my surroundings about six feet away from me as a medium sized black man with designer wool pants pulled around his ankles. Laying near a storm sewer on the side of Lake Street. Shoes are still on. That's creepy do you suppose. He was dead when his pants were slid off. There's so much blood on his body and on the ground it's difficult to tell what happened. Clearly there giant stab wounds and slices all over his body. The man's navy polo shirt had so many holes in it. It's impressive stayed on while his body was being pushed out of the car. I look at the man's right hand and see stab wounds on his palms and slices on his fingers. Did he try and grab the knife? When do you suppose he gave up? Fighting was it before or after his pants were off inevitably. My eyes are drawn to the man's paint us or what I think it's being penis again. There is so much blood. It's hard to make out details. But his pianist definitely had deep slices an and was barely recognizable as a human penis. Lindsey must have seen me staring in horror trying not to imagine what it would be like to have. My penis repeatedly sliced by a random stranger. She tells me to grab the man's feet. This was nice of her. Normally veteran funeral directors. Make the new guy do the heavy lifting but Lindsay Catella was having difficulty processing the situation. So she did me a solid and took the heavier bloodier end. Lindsey opens the Disaster Pouch and places in next to the body she grabs the shoulders starts moving the body and finally get a look at the man's face for the first time my mouth must have hit the ground. I've never seen anything like this before. Sure at someone's face but aside from a Barau line nose and mouth. This man's face had more in common with the deflated basketball covered in broken teeth and ground. Meat this man had the thickest black is coagulated blood coming out of his eyes mouth and however many stab wounds were in his face and head. You heard me right. This guy must have had a dozen stab wounds to his head. It's weird you don't ever see that in movies. Everyone gets stabbed in the body but in the real world I can assure you there are apparently no MPA guidelines for knife-wielding killers had stabbings. Are Real thing the overpowering smell of hot and fresh cheeseburgers mixed with the site of this man's brutalized face? Made me wish I was at the beach with a Mandawa right now in made me wish I was anywhere or maybe I'm just hungry for a cheeseburger. Edano no one Lindsay says all right. Let's move him. I grabbed the man's ankles. His lower legs and feet are in perfect non stabbed condition. The Sky could be shorts model if you to do well if he wasn't dead. It's kind of weird that his lower legs weren't touched at all right. The person who did this was pretty thorough. So I'm surprised. He didn't shoot for full body coverage maybe he did. And I just can't tell we put the body in the bag and ZIP it up as we're moving the body to the stretcher. I see a firefighter in full uniform. Connecting a fire hose to a hydrant Lindsey points at them and says they can write a hose. This place down. Oh so that's what they do with all that blood we load our body into the back of the van. Get in and buckle ourselves up for our trip back to the funeral home. Wow it's only nine thirty Lindsay. Says she points across the street and says hot and fresh meals pretty good. You WanNa take our buddy to get a burger. She laughs secretly. I'm disappointed that she wasn't serious. I could really go for a burger. We found out later that weekend that our foreign exchange student was actually stabbed seventy seven times. The entire left side of his face was crushed by a weapon or instrument of some sort and to top it off. The tip of his penis was cut off. And his scrotum was crudely ripped open by a serrated blade and it was all done by a complete stranger as far as. I know they never found the person who did it. They're probably still driving around in that ninety six. Lancer. It's Labor Day night. I'm getting ready for bed. I'm brushing my teeth and thinking about my presentation tomorrow. I can't talk about this murder. I want to. But it's not really. Pg I'd get enough for sure or Mrs Jones. May actually snap and staff may seventy eight times for telling my classmates about my weird encounter with a dead foreign exchange student right by the hot and fresh this weekend. I don't know what to do. It's Tuesday morning. I was awake six minutes before my mom came in and woke me Of being completely unsure of what I was going to present my class in eight period had me tightly wound from the jump so when my mom came in and open my blinds I was a little less than pleasant my stomach was in Nazi? Entire ride to school. What can I talk about movies? I saw or music. I listened to over the summer that fun trip. I took to the amusement park. How about genital mutilation just kidding? That wouldn't go over. Mrs Jones already hates me because of my awfulness last year so I need to think fast. Otherwise I'm going to be completely fucked for the next one hundred and eighty days until high school since I can't tell the story from this weekend. Maybe I'll just talk about what it's like working at the funeral home. Yeah like day to day. That's interesting right now. It's boring. I walked into the cafeteria just after six period feeling completely sick walking up to the lunch line I always usually pretty excited for launch because like I mentioned before we always carry out since we're a small Catholic middle school. There isn't really enough funding for anything. Not to mention whatever money it would take to properly staff maintain a cafeteria kitchen so essentially we get baths food. Every day as I get closer to the front of the line where the parent volunteers handing out lunch. I get a waft of whatever it is. They're passing out. It's of familiar delicious. Smell I feel my saliva. Glands activate tangle and then the foreign exchange students crushed Izhak at pops into my head for a moment at breath classmates standing in front of me turns us. We're both inching our way forward in line and ask. What are you giving your presentation on before I can even open my mouth? She says my family and I went to the billboard mansion over the summer you know the place where they filmed richie rich sliding forward barely listening. I think to myself I'm fucked. I don't know I sternly say to my classmate abruptly ending her blabbering stupid fucking rich mansion. I get.

"A wave of relief washes over me when I imagined myself giving the most riveting speech in class until Lindsey starts telling me about the first bike accident she worked. Cut The fuckers clean off. She laughed okay, so clearly if I'm going to present anything like this I have to be a little bit more delicate than Lindsey's being right now. I really can't start the year off with an and trip to the principal's office. We turn the corner now. We're on lake, street. Heading towards third all I can see is a sea of police and fire truck lights. There must have been seven cop cars and. And two firetrucks, well one and a half they have the fire marshals F. Three fifty out alongside one of the big engines today they're blocking off the crime scene with their vehicles. Lindsay says under breath if it's a bike accident, why do they need a fire truck blocking lookie Loos, trying to sneak peek seems like it would be a little more cost effective for the city to bring a sheet to cover the body rather than. Than a three hundred fifty thousand dollar fire truck at the moment, Lindsey and I are both trying to figure out what we're in for. The brakes on the vans squeak as we slow to a stop about ten meters from the barricade of cars in this neighborhood. It's probably on a bike. He might be your grant Lindsay says putting the car in Park and making sure to make direct eye contact with me. Just try not to freak. Freak out and tell me if it's too much. Okay? All right I say knowing full well Lindsey could sense how nervous I was. I think she's being sweet right now or she's like the legit worried. This is GonNa Fuck my brain up, probably kid, and even thought of that. What if it's somebody I know? My heart starts to speed up as I think about all of my neighborhood, friends with bicycles heads exploding through windshield simultaneously. Then I imagine my own head and body, being crushed by a pickup truck after being mowed over on my burnt or injured track BMX bike. What sound is a human head? Make when it's crushed by a truck tire. Lindsey and I get out and pull the stretcher out of the back of the van for a moment I'm distracted by the smell of grilled cheese bergers coming from the drive through restaurant across the street, hot and fresh. Even though it's just after nine am I find myself craving, hot and cheeseburger. Would it be weird to ask Lindsey to pop through the drive through with a dead body that seems like it would be professionally frowned upon I better. Not Ask plus I remember seeing hot and fresh on our schools lunch menu this week. We only have delivery. It's weird and expensive, but I think I can wait a couple of days for a burger. And I walked toward to friendly police officers leaning against one of the barrier cars. It's lights on. It's an older crown. VIC fresh paint job. Though must have been wrecked in recycled. We were interrupting what sounded like the officers discussing Labor Day weekend plans I can't be sure though I just heard words like hot dog and Lake and made an assumption you to with the funeral home. One of the officers asked Lindsay says Yeah Yasser points to me and says Jesus Christ what is he fifteen Lindsey smiles and responds thirteen. He's the owner son is getting broke into the business. Well. He's in for a doozy. The officer chuckles. What am I and for a doozy? You Know My dad's sent me here. He knows what it is. He wouldn't send me if he didn't think I could handle it and as nervous as I am. A part of me is overflowing with excitement I pulled weeds and clean light fixtures all summer. Hoping something like this would happen. It might be a little tacky to say out loud, but I'm ready to see something. See on TV. Lindsay says to the officers. We're not really sure what's going on here. Call come out I. Smile and nod Lindsey with confidence letting her know that I'm not. GonNa. Let her down however awful. This bike accident is the author starts describing the crime scene well. We've got a twenty two year old dead foreign exchange student. Thank. It's not one of my friends or a kid Jesus never build a bike again. The officer breaks my train of thought with a sense I wasn't planning on hearing that day or any other day. For that matter we think are victim has been stabbed about ninety times all over his body. No one's on its back. Though the left side of his face is completely caved in and to top it off, his pants were pulled down, and his genitals were mutilated. Holy Shit thought this was a bike accident. The officer continues with his information. Someone said they saw him fall out. Out of a black nineteen ninety-six Mitsubishi Lancer or a car of a similar make Lindsey Chimes. Then so they stabbed him and bludgeoned him in the car, and then pushed him out. It appears so the author walks between two of the barrier, police cars and waves as forward to follow him with the stretcher I was excited before, but I'm afraid to see what's on the other side of the police car barrier after the officers description, but the smell of hot and fresh keeps wafting into my nostrils and takes my mind off about to do and what I'm about to see. Lindsey and I finally see what's on the other side of the police cars. The first thing I noticed was the amount of police officers that we couldn't see from the other side of the makeshift car perimeter. There must have been seven or eight uniformed officers, and three or four detectives and slacks and Blazers huddled around a body surrounded by a pool of blood. Blood a very large pool of the deepest prettiest read you can imagine. The color of the blood is such a striking shade, especially next to the gray pavement and grass on the curb, as the officers scatter upon our arrival, the dead body. There's no sheet. No covering Lindsey whispers to me. They must have just finished investigating. They haven't even covered the body out. Shrug my shoulders. I wouldn't know either way as we wheel. The stretchered deeper into the circle of cars and trucks surrounding are seeing the crowd of officers that were near the body disperse until it's just Lindsey myself and the officer that brought us back to the body. Everyone just vanished. It's eerily quiet now. I've been a little too busy slipping on my heavy duty, blue surgical gloves to take a look at the body. Well, that's not entirely true. I haven't taken a look at the body because I'm terrified of what I was about to see. I'm thirteen. I don't have any experience with genital mutilation, so I'm not. Not sure how I'll respond seeing it up close. It doesn't really sound like my cup of tea I. Hope I. Don't faint when I get up close at fallen blood once my gloves. Her on the stretcher has been lowered. Lindsey grabs. Disaster Pouch and we walked closer to the body. She throws me a small water plastic out of pocket and says put these on their shoe coverings Lindsey watches me slip them over. My Leather Soled Steve Madden lace, up cap does and tells me you don't want to get anything on your shoes and take it home with you. Your dog will lick the blood off the souls what? Given, the amount of blood leaking out of this man's body on the pavement. I'm glad she brought these I. Don't want my dog lapping up this guy's blood off my shoes. Carter's a good way. He wouldn't mess with them. I think seeing all the blood around the body. I think to myself, how are they going to clean this up? Surely they can't just leave it here once we take the body right. Right, I'm standing over the body with Lindsey now our feet covered in plastic, or both in his blood. There's a faint chemical smell coming off the blood or the body, although it's barely cutting through the smell of the cheeseburgers, which smells less appetizing. The closer I get to the body. This is my first look at our foreign exchange student friend and the site just about knocked me out I exhale sharply. Lindsey looks at me. Concerned I take in my surroundings about six feet away from me as a medium sized black man with designer, wool pants pulled around his ankles, laying.
