"To take years bright, but the thing is like even though it's going to take years at least removing that direction. Direction I just hope as a society that we have the patience to be able to let things get better because it's not going to happen immediately, and that's what we want right now like you said. We're looking for that and thing to fund the police. Fund it all right you. They shoot people, so let's get rid of them or let's have less of them than there should be less problems, but they're actually the problems. I would imagine what increase a lot. If you had less, they'd be more scared more stress. More overworked and crime will go up. It crime already has it already. Has It already has gone up? I remember a few years ago. It probably was. Maybe six to ten years ago and I don't remember why the not sure. If it was just, the economy was weird, maybe two, thousand, eight or something, or or what year it was. Kind of drawn a blank on when it was exactly, but they furloughed a lot of police officers, they laid off a lot of police officers kind of in a systematic way to where it's like okay, you're off for two weeks and then you're coming back and then after two weeks, and then you're coming which you know, it's like okay. We're trying to spread the money around. Because for whatever reason there was lack of funds. I can't remember if it was the economy or exactly what was going on? At the time, but man, what a horrible protocol! Right like there's there's things that we try to put into place and we don't understand what's going to be. The implications of that imagine if you work a lot less and you're already under trained. When you get back into it, and you get back into the mix every time you come back. I mean you're going to be like just like you, so you take time off to Jitsu any kind of like. Remember how to escape out of this I mean. Anyone has ever done Jitsu, or a martial art or anything that really has like a drill or a protocol of you like moving a certain way and a certain procedural thing. It puts your brain in a not like hurts your head. You're like I. can't remember what to do and I can't even imagine what that would be like. If you were in a a volatile situation as a police officer, but what ended up happening when the results of that was the situation that happened Davis where kids? Young college students were on the ground on their knees with their hands behind their back, protesting something I. Don't remember what it was and police officers sprayed them. Any is with like Mace. People aren't. In defense of the police, people aren't listening to the police. But against police these were. These were or police officers because a lot of the police officers. That were that they were trying to stop. Having worked so much made a lot more money, and so they were trying to siphon the money back into the system by having okay, you been on the force for thirty years. You make one hundred and twenty k. like we're. We definitely need you to take a little bit of a break. I believe that was the case or they may have been. They may have been just laying off altogether. The people that were there longer, but what I do, recall from the situation. There was a lot younger police officers with a lot less experience and even less training because they don't get that much training, anyway, Because it just didn't. They didn't really have a lot of experience at handled that situation. Thank God I was just Mace. which is horrible in it of itself, but you know it could, it could be worse, right? Just Google search around. It looks like it was maybe around two thousand fourteen. Unless this is a different situation sounds about right where. The the plan was to. Do a ten percent pay cut for state workers to help with a fifty four billion dollar deficit, so newsome had proposed this cut, or whatever so. I think that's what lead to. People getting furloughed and all that. So. If. NEWSOM ever becomes President I'm. Matt Air Moving to Canada. But you know like he when he mentioned that. They're in certain areas. There is such shortage of cops that they'll take somebody who's still in the academy who hasn't. Gone through all their processes and just put them on the street. That's just. Mind, boggling. You put them on the street with a weapon that can take somebody else's life without the proper training to actually do it, God like again. Let's think about what happens. If we do de-fund. More of those situations will APP. It's a very serious job. You know it's it's not like. It's not really. Similar to a lot of other jobs, I mean a firefighters a little similar. If you're a medical professional, it's a little similar. But you know if you If you're somebody that works for the state and inputs information in a computer. That's way different like we could see how you work in the field. We don't have a lot of time the training where it's going to push you along. We're going to see you're going to work with so and so today and you're going to learn from them. No harm really okay. You messed up someone's paperwork a couple times like okay well. You know you keep doing that and he can't continue to work here or people that we've had work here before where we're filming or photography. Take bad photos are the videos are bad and they don't improve. No harm like no one. No one got hurt every everything's totally fine. We just. We tried something and it just didn't work, but. When it comes to police, we can't have stuff that. That's what makes it so difficult can't have that doesn't work. And in an effort to defend the police, what will happen is. We'll see the consequences of that. You know there could be some good. There could be some good. That comes out of it. They'll definitely be some bad. That comes out of it, but maybe will help us land right where we need to. But again, because there's people's lives on the line, it's just a risky thing i. hope that we really think about it a lot before we implement anything in particular. On that, though because I was thinking about that like we're going to swing so far in one direction that will see the ramifications, and then we'll. We'll slowly get back to a place of reason. Hope. We don't have to swing way too far before that happens, but. Yeah when you're talking about patients. Reminding me about when he was tired about that incident where.

"Get educated. Go down here, apartment. I'm sure they're not gonNA. Turn you away. They're not going to say leave here. anything their windows doors of say, come on and what we want to show you what it's all about. Awesome have a great rest of your day. Thanks Sir Most God bless. Wow. You. If there was any cop that we could have on, that could explain things so damn well. It was this man. He was amazing yeah yeah. Yeah. Just so great I think. The A big takeaway again. Just like what what he mentioned. You know I didn't think about it from that perspective that. Cops are getting that five percent of individuals that are coming in, and then they have that Lens. That lens and I it's. It's hard to not look at society in a certain way, but it's the same thing that we're currently doing you know we see this Lens. All these instagram pages of brutality. Planning, drugs shooting people we see that and then again we just identify that as these are cops are I remember years ago Peter? It did a Ted talk and he got real emotional during this Ted talk and he talked about how he mistreated somebody. He just wasn't compassionate to them because he studied like diabetes and he studied. You studied how this all happens and he's basically he didn't tell the person. They were like fat and lazy, but that's kind of. He kind of just shrugged them off. You know and he was just like. You're you know you get your own doing kind of how he said it, and he just realize like how like how shitty that was, but he didn't realize that. Until you gain more knowledge, he gained more knowledge when he when he started to learn more, he realized like wow, that really was a crappy way to handle a particular situation and the reason that he felt that way are the reason. Reason that he felt that way. In that moment at that time was because of the same things that police officers end up dealing with the same crap kind of over and over and over so imagine you see a person. That's one hundred pounds overweight, and you see a person at one hundred fifty pounds overweight. You see someone who's seventy five pounds overweight. You see somebody hundred and you're just like. You take it out and like that last person like. Hey, you know like you're just being fucking lazy. Got And you crush that person and you make the wrong judgement. Call you make the wrong. Prescription and I think the same thing can happen with cops if they're getting real irritable. They're getting real irritated with seeing similar things happen all the time. People are lying to them. As he said he saw people on fire, I mean. I don't even know how you I. Guess You don't ever recover you. Live with some of those things, so that's why it's good that they do evaluations of these guys but. It's. Not Trying to make defense for anything that's happened especially recently but. it does put it into some better perspective. It's a big reason why this defunding thing police doesn't make sense. You look at him at his precinct. Whatever it's called Department you see how well they're running things that he even says that more change can happen, but the fact that that's not across the board across the US that there are a lot of places that are just dumping their auto places that are just horrible it. That means we just.

"Be willing to move forward and not be afraid to speak up win when the right thing needs to be done. Got You know. I'm curious about this because. For, example we look at the George Boyd Situation Right Derek. Shovel apparently he had like. Seventeen and nineteen derogatory remarks, but he was still able to go out there and do his thing You see different cases where police use deadly force in the public gets mad that they get off and that they're still being able to potentially serve I'm curious. Are there any type of Are there any? Is there anything that kind of watches and pays attention to police officers that have a record of not being the best as far as dealing with the community. Is there any it do? Are there any structures to watch those individuals and then also? Do you feel that? There is a lot of protection for police officers that do end up doing the wrong thing that you end up accidentally killing someone because you know on the job are there too much protection throughout for them or are? There are the protections for them, correct. It's like a double edged sword so we we can do way better. As a profession of trying to track the bad officers and getting rid of bad officers, the issue here is an issue in. Here's the hard thing is not just police work I. I've talked to many teachers. I talked to one of my as a matter of fact, one of my good friends. She's a principal at a school and she was like you don't understand how hard it is to get rid of badgers like to like the Teacher's Union is so. So powerful that these teachers can do some crazy up and it's very difficult to get rid of him so as not just a police problem. It's just a problem in general because we get so much, we we, we give a lot of power from the standpoint of Hey, we there needs to be some type of protection for providing and all sorts of stuff, so one of my mentors. He always talks about this great rhino. Black Rhino thing which is. We see all these all this track. Record is history of you know. There's officer making a bad decision and everything like that, and then also goes, and does something terrible and everybody's like. Oh, my goodness! What happened and it's like you saw this coming for years, but yet you never chose to do it and. We're being honest with ourselves. You hear about an officer that does something that's out of policy or this misconduct, and you have officers man are. Could all that come? And as I will shoot. If you saw that come in then, how can we didn't deal with? So? Yes, we can do better, but the issue is again going back to that human nature proponent of it is like no matter what job you're at you. Start developing relationships with people, and you also have you have aspirations of advancing no matter what profession you're in, so if you'd have rent than you also have the the aspirations of advancing, you know, it gets very difficult to start saying stuff against somebody because you don't know how you're going to be black sheep are going to. Are they going to turn your back on you is? is at the popular thing to do and you ask me. It's the right thing to do. We need to do it, but it's a lot easier. Said than done so doing you to get better this department. Absolutely, there's we do need to have some type of ways to keep better track records appeal police officers and what they're doing. Are they showing a propensity? Derek Selvi should have never been on that street. Without a doubt, he should have been fired a long time ago, so we have to do better with standpoint, but at the same time though there are many officers that are that are prosecuted. There are many officers ever fired. We don't hear about it because the time it happens, it's already been so much time. Between the incident that we forget about it a into, it doesn't get as much traction like you're not going to have all these people come on oh. Yeah man officer was prosecuted after because it doesn't gain steam like it should. We had an officer years ago. That did something was very wrong, and my department never hesitated to get rid of that guy. Obviously, they had to go and do the investigation. They had a dot dot dot. Tease across dot other is across other ts before they did it, but once that moment came, they got rid of that guy, but we never heard about it like that. It was a maybe a splash on a new segment, but then it was done. You don't mean so. It is happening at other departments more so than others, but again that goes again back to the standardization of officers across the board. That's what we should have some consistent standards because you know. Know my department. Who does things right way is great, but if you got an apartment on the other side of the country is doing the wrong way. It makes me look just as bad as a wrong. When we're only great, it really is the weakest link and so we gotta bring the Weakest Link Up. What about maybe like a psychological evaluation? WOULD THAT BE? Do you think that would be effective at all like every five years every x amount of? Cost money, but it's just an extra like I. would it not checking in with your man seeing if because a lot of times some of my friends have been police officers? They're like man I. Just had to get out. You know I just got so frustrated with society and got tired of people. Lie To me. Tired of being in these like crazy situations that I just I just had ounce, but it was good that they've recognized that of themselves. You know the the the allure of being police officer Iran out. They weren't happy about their job anymore, and they were actually kind of more irradiated by than anything. So maybe some psychological evaluations or something like that might be something that could help. Without a doubt again, going back to my apartment and I'm tr- trust them out of without paying me to say this, I'll tell you this is my..

"Police officers don't get a discount to Jim. Some police officers police department. They allow you to like they. They don't really not big on enforcing that, but it's if you look at our code of ethics, it says law enforcement officers. We will not accept. And so is now becomes a better of what department was some force that on what don't want to and I understand some of it. Some of it is like you know you give a you accept from some person. And then you went to pull over their mom or dad or the cuzner. Time so you know you should hook me up now so I understand that side of it, but at the same time we it shouldn't be scrutinized as much, but it only go there if we raise our standards, police officer because I don't want the the officer, it should be a police officer accepting gratuities because again. He's a tarnished to me. So you know it's it's you know to give and take we. We gotta be able to internally. Say Hey, we're going to raise our standards so that way. The public knows have the best of the best serving them. But at the same time I would love for the community. Understand gave we got you guys got some crazy jobs. Let's give them a little bit more grace and mercy that we're giving them right now. Let's go over like a little bit like procedural stuff like. How hard is it to handcuff? Somebody liked to me. It seems like it's a very difficult task. Do you think that that should be looked into more? And and maybe there could be some other way to subdue somebody to get I mean it seems like once you have him. Handcuffed seems like you got him pretty good, but. You. Know trying to handcuff. Somebody seems like it'd be very difficult even if they even if the person wasn't crazy. Strong that you're trying to handcuff. So what's so difficult with handcuffing? He's actually nothing to do with the actual cuffing itself. What makes it so difficult is unpredictable of the person Dila with because when we go to handcuff somebody. We don't know if they're going to try to fight or they're gonNA. Try to flight, which is obviously fleet from us, and so with that being said you know one that I've heard before one of the most dangerous things in in our society. Is She nature? Because you, it's it's the most unpredictable thing human nature. Nature is by far the most notable thing and so, what makes handcuffing difficult? You don't know what's going to happen the moment you touch that person and so that's one of the things that I'm trying to look at it like what I'm going to go that first hand on them. How are they? Are they going tense up? Or are they gonNA be relaxed, and so once you figure out, okay? Hey, they're going to be relaxed now. There is a technique that goes into it, and then hopefully you can. Go through that handcuffing technique appropriately, but if they do tense up now, that's what happened now. You're like okay well. What happens next? How you going to respond to that next? So we gotta relies a few things with the handcuffing specifically is at training across the country is way different We talk about police reform and I've always said you know we want to. To do some leg, legitimate police reform, let's start with the training that we have across the board I. Honestly think that the same staff that it should be the same standard if you're a police officer in California than if you're in Timbuktu Idaho than if you're in New York right now if you go from city to city county to county state to state you're. You're going to see different training and tactics. No matter where you go, just because that's kind of how to sell at setup did of California we do have something that's called. The California opposed the police officer standardized training, so you're going to get a level consistency, but even from department apart you're still going to have some type of differences and so those are some. Some of the things to consider is well. We are going to do some type of police reform will. What's that police reform? GonNa look like I think we need to start with the standardized training, therefore going back to the handcuffing. You know that that handcuff no matter where you go. You're train the same exact thing in their training exactly how to do it. You know I'm curious about this. Because I'm especially since we were just talking about training here. We just had a military Guy Casey Metro on and also heard kind of the same things. Sentiments from I don't know if you heard the Jaakko willing cups on on Rogan recently, but they're talking about how. It seems that I. Don't know how much training officers get on a year to year basis. How much they go back to training! Sensitivity, training, etc, but it seems that like we. There seems to be an echo of. They're not getting enough training often, it's like they get training, and then they don't come back to it now. I don't know. Is that a truth? Do they really really go back to training for a long time? And there's on the job all the time, or is there any re- education on? You need to be doing this. You need to be falling this protocol. How does that look as you said? It's not the same across the board, but is any of that around at all. Yeah, so my department actually does a really really good job as far as training as a matter of fact, training, probably one of our core principles store department. And so every four months every four months we we have some type of train that we go through whether defensive tactics whether it's mental health training whether it's implicit or by implicit policing explicit implicit biases, no matter what it is always going through some level of training, but there are departments that you know they may do defensive tactics once a year. They may you know only do? They might fire their firearm twice a year. They you know there's a lot of things at you know. Police departments aren't doing. Enough of again that not necessarily as a knock on the police department, but a lot of it is. Funny because you've got to realize, is that even though we want officers to be more training while officers, training crime is still going on so at some point in time,.

"Is You know look at their budgets? They have this family. Jim In their own apartment in. Why are we paying for them to have a gym and I'm thinking to? My mind is like you know you gotTa. Understand something. With the better. The more officers are in shape and fit the less likely utilize their their deadly force, because they're not going to become over reliant on the tools in their belt, but you know the hands that they have or the feet that they have a so i. just did a podcast within her integration the other day. We're talking about if we can just improve. Our defensive tactics through whether it'd be resilient Brazilian Jujitsu whatever may be the now we decrease the odds of us, using lethal force. You know because we got to go to our belt, and so we got to change his way of thinking, but again if we were to go to something like that that requires money so anything there needs to be more money to get. Officers as oppose less money so I'm. I'm telling you now. Most officers are not going to go out on their own and try to get into some type of JJ programmers because they can't afford it. It's an expensive thing to do, so you know I understand. We're in a unique position. For example I was I had had the pleasure of having dinner with that Prescott the other night, and so we're talking asthma, attack or sitting down talking we were. He was at. He asked a question like you do police officers are. Should you know be able to get incentivized to go to a gym or get some type of a discounted membership at a gym or whatever may be and they're? That is true for some places like a lot of times. It's not just because in our code of ethics. There's something in the quarterback of the ethics says we shall not accept gratuities. which again because we're held to a higher standard I understand that but from. DAX is actually a man like I. Get hooked up all the time. Because I'm the started quarterback at a Dallas cowboys, you know. How is it any different? I was like you know what the again it goes to the perception of when somebody sees a police officer, taking a discount at a local store or a starbucks would may be is looked at. It looked frowned upon because he shouldn't be. He's here to serve us. We're paying him so again I. I I'm the main one. Tell people all the time like you know I am here sir. Yes, I do work for you. I have every obligation to put you before mile need. But at the same time we got to be realistic with the expectations that were putting on our police officers, because a lot of unrealistic expectations, and are not taking into account like you said the totality of everything that we build through on a database especially truck that I don't understand because we have military discounts, you know like military cancer thing everywhere..

"The police fire and it gets people enraged. So. Rose all right, we can hear you. You? Hold on one second. Let me get this onto my. Uh! Arche does here. See me. Yeah, we got you. Perfect offshoot shooting me. Change the. Perfect good now. Yeah, grey tabby on the show today it's great to get different perspectives on what's going on in the world and I'm sure you've been hit up recently. By a lot of people hop on their podcast. I saw you on. Bay just cooling show as well I guess first off. Let's kind of dive into. Some of your background. If you could share some of your background with us, and then we'll get that out out out on the table. I! Yeah. No, for sure man. Thanks for almost for having me on guys like your. Phone is being crazy lately. Man But but forgive reasons as man so my name is Ryan Tillman. Founder, breaking barriers united which are foreign abridged law for the community. Reason it is I am a police officer. By Day were hours a week fulltime here in a lovely city, the Chino. And I have you know I'm married to my beautiful wife Kimberly in and a half three lovely kids mass. I'll wear a lot of hats right now and been. Busy, but for for good reasons. That's great. What made you start the What made you start the organization? So. You got to go back a little bit about me. you know I had no aspirations of being a police officer at all I was actually you know harassed by some police officers growing on my family member is by police officers growing up, and so you know moving forward in life got married to my wife can relate. She got pregnant with our first child when it happened I was like you know I need to do something else alive. At the time, I was selling insurance. worked it out probably a fish which I hated, and so prayed about it, and you know this opportunity came to light where my dad brand was a captain for a police department local police. Hey, Ryan should get bogged. Golfers I'm not working for the man I'm not about the be a pig like thank negative. That's not about to happen. And so I prayed about it and the door, just kind of flew open from there, and then once I got into law that was right around the time that Ferguson I had happened, and I was like man. This is crazy like this. What I really signed up to do so I had a conversation with my mother. My mother was like she was thinking about the whole thing. She was I. Wonder If. After thinking about situation, I was wondering like with my son. Have done the same thing as the officer Ferguson after thinking about it, you know I know my son to loving son, a loving husband eleven dad, and he probably would have did it just because he needs. He wants to make a home safely to his family. And I said that kind of got my will spend. Spend like the only reason. My Mom sees it that way because it's Pumpkin Lights, you can always called puppy to like Republicans a police officer down so she sees things differently, so that got me going on this whole concept of breaking varies united, which was to to bridge gaps for into community by allowing people to see human behind the badge, but also exposing the bad behind batch. Great What are what are your thoughts about? You know like the police officers having more training police. Police officers having less training. We've been talking about that quite a bit on the show defunding the police, giving more funding to the police, and and trying to find kind of happy medium between those two things. Well. You said it right now. Man was going on our country and the reason. We're having so many issues, 'cause. There's no balance right now like there's literally no balance. There yet to polar extremes one is a fundamental abolishing the other saying now we're not trying to change, so you know I'm thirty three years old I've always liked to consider myself innovative at outside of the box thinker, and so I kind of really think that we can do both at the same time. We have this you know police. Officers are afraid of this turmoil. Police reforms of. We should be afraid of you like we should always be trying to go for. We should always be trying to change. You should always be trying to adapt and do things better, and so that's all police reform is is figuring out how we can do our jobs better at the same time you know we talk about defunding the police. I understand it I've read many articles about it about how really were means re reallocating funds, which I'm all about reallocating funds, but at the saints we gotta be smart with the reallocation of funds. You know having some technical difficulties today. It's. People people trying to censor us. Never gets the meat just got. Got, good yeah everyone starts to pick up on that. That caller yesterday said that we were on Rogan's level so now. Obviously we got to target suit actor. Yeah, they're trying to do. Yeah. I love the fact that He. There's not enough people that really take action and I can admit to being one of those people's well. I try to take as much as much action towards things as I can. But how often do you find yourself kind of complaining about a particular situation saying something, and and then really not doing anything about I like the fact that he started this organization to. Build up stronger relationships within the community. I think that man that could be. That could be huge if there's if there's better relationships between the police officers and the actual community itself I can't imagine how that can't help I mean just imagine growing up in just having better feelings about the police officers period because they're at your Little League Baseball. Games or they're you know at You know picnics, rallies, or whatever you WANNA call it just kind of part of the community I..

Alrighty, trying to get some police on here. Hear things from? Here things from another perspective. Directly from the source. Believe I mean he's on the same wavelength as like what we've been saying about like having like a good like representation on the police side to be able to communicate with the the the communities and stuff, and you know that's Kinda like his programs have been all about is. kind of putting a face to the badge type of thing as opposed to just US versus them, which is really cool. Yeah more that something needs to happen, but on a bigger scale 'cause. It's cool if it happens on Mike, you know certain individuals do it, but it's not widespread. Wild stuff happening like for example and again. I'm not in favor of the defunding of police argument, but. Apparently in North Carolina Summa, this is stuff that fuels that whole defunding the police fire right so over over air. Some cops are overt saying. We're just GONNA. Go out and start slaughtering them. niggers. I can't wait on. God I can't wait. That's in North Carolina so again those are the those are the micro situations that are fueling whole de-fund the police fire and it gets people enraged. So. Rose all right, we can hear you. You?

"Ladies and gentlemen welcome to mark Wells Power Project podcast hosted by Mark Bell. Hosted by seeing and Myself Andrews Air Goes. This episodes recorded on June twenty sixth, and it is a phenomenal episode. Today's guest is an amazing man. He is a mentor, a police officer in southern. California the one and only Ryan Tillman. Ryan I mean. He was so charismatic, but he is inactive police officer, so we were able to ask him some of the questions that we have you know asking ourselves amongst. Ourselves on the PODCAST. We have no experience in that department, so it was amazing. Having somebody that is in this aisle this line of work every single day, so we talked a lot about defunding the police funding the police. How much training the police receive! Again because he's somebody that's in this line of work. He was able to answer answer everything. And and when I don't want to say, he has all the answers. No one definitely has all the answers, but what he has to say is really compelling. It's impactful and I think everyone's GonNa find a ton of value in today's episode, and like I said we were able to ask him. Questions that just like a general average Joe person would have. You know something as silly as like. Is it to handcuff somebody? Or do police officers always have to shoot to kill? Can't they aim for the arm or the leg?

"Like we had a delving into my particular experience but yes of course. It is strange And guess also eye opening and an I find Unfortunately in Berlin. We don't have a hat. Had such severe lockdown so it was okay to walk and because there's no no cost in the streets in many of the roads was just walking in the middle of the road. And you didn't even have to look up for traffic and so I was looking up all the time and looking at buildings and looking at the trees you know mid March was still all dead. And now 'cause they'll sprouting and this sculptural transformation in the afternoon light. How the low. The shadows of the trees hit the buildings that was a beautiful urban poetry. In that for me and other times I'd try to make use of of Looking at old pictures and catching up on work that I didn't really look at yet so I'm really not thinking. The digital world can replace the physical experience of space where you look at art. A bisley engage lot within the screen with a screen so it is obviously a medium that I use also some of them either. The basis of my my work is is physical word that comes together and space with an audience. You Spo- then a moments ago about that kind of about the way that culture runs in parallel to politics and has done for many many years and it seems like the gallery as a meeting place as you say. An audience with ought to react against re kind of generates a very productive kind of critical and and emotional energy. The The may be as the core of Wyatt matters. How do you think this kind of new regimen of social distancing stands to impact off in the way we look at what I'm really concerned about his nightlife? Which is a venue for the art of dance? Music is also a social venue. Romantic romantic continue. But it's It's also a place for the art of electronic music. And and prohibition has always sought tried to limit nightlife and restrict and could become a tool for a third parties to shut down even mall this unruly same that is always a frightening older people united interesting. How young people like to go out and then as soon as people get faulty? Plus they're freaked out about it and and try to try to control it and police try to control it and and now of course That would be a terrible outcome if nightlife got crippled by this in the name of public health. Of course you know it has to be done has to be done but I hope that this doesn't take so long. That basically all nightlife venues have gone bust..

"The lockdown in knock on effects that is just so dramatic that I think one has to try and come out as quickly as possible But obviously I'm not a a not one of the millions of epidemologists that have sprung up everywhere. Thing is at the moment I think. Twelve thousand empty intensive cabinets beds drew them. So it doesn't. It isn't fully justified to stop everything at this moment. You've used you instagram. To kind of spread messages about the referendum. About face masks. You put a really interesting post up recently about landlords rent relief. You might this argument. That rather than offer. Loans PAP small businesses entrepreneurs individuals should be given rent relief for the duration of the of the pandemic to survive thrive afterwards. Do you think that it's really thrown into relief? Some of the shortcomings of the sort of capitalism that we've grown used to for the last sort of twenty years. I mean I think what's really striking is to see how little fat there is a little. You know little back up. There is after ten years of ferocious growth and earnings being made That as so little left to fall back on and obviously that money has gone some way another money that was earned as gone somewhere and now again it's the public that has to bail out the businesses and I guess it does throw into question. Why a what do we run? The Economy Fall Unlike. What is the benefit Who other who other recipients A. How is wealth being distributed? I don't think it's inappropriate to make the connection between this which is of course purely first of all the medical thing between this end and an economic system questioned. What do we struggled full? What do we raise for if it does atomised society that much then? Maybe this need for change towards the end of last month. Germany announced the very big stimulus package for smaller businesses. That also applies to freelance waking the cultural sector to artists the UK's response has been APPs less positive. I think a lot of artists are having to wait until June. To look into the possibility of getting some sorts of more relief from the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. How important is it? To sustain. Coach Rural Produces at a time like this and I suppose as a follow on. Do you think that they have a large role in kind of mediating? We've just been talking about in exploring things fool in shorts and how we might do move forwards in a positive way following the pandemic yet one could ask like why should the cultural sector be treated any different but I think the onset is also clear. I mean it is it is it is particularly hard hit because there is no audience. There's no performance that is no but fall and in the best of times. Cultural production is never like economically secure. Woah and it is always a struggle and And so if places have to shutdown they're not going to spring up tomorrow again. What we lose now may be lost forever or we'll take a long time for cultural spaces to open up and I hope that politicians aware of fats this is a recurring theme. Is Net what we lose now gets lost forever in this sort of short term five year ahead to the next election people make decisions that cost society at large fat indefinite by of course the austerity in the UK. Those cuts they have also shape society. The these cut stones come without cost but also you know in the UK. You just made that reference to the Telegraph article on the Sunday. The Sunday Times. Run along piece kind of outlining the shortcomings of Boris Johnson's government in managing the coronavirus crisis. In the absence of that kind of leadership do you think that coach figure actually play a kind of significant part in step in foods at times this sorted not giving a clear answer. I like to say that on the one hand. Autism don't have an obligation to be political. They don't have to have an obligation to use their speaking voice. In addition to whatever their other medium is I think everybody should be engaged in public life But on the other hand Atis to have a special role and ought has accompanied all major changes in society like Ole progressive a positive development in the last hundred years has been accompanied by music by a graphics by visuals. A fashion I mean. Cultural production is political inherently because it speaks about what is desirable in in society. In what what you want. When there's a passion is away and the odds speak to that and about that. How did you find the coronavirus pandemic kind of playing out in your own autistic practice? Obviously there are some galleries set to reopen. This week. I think in Australia Germany. But you know elsewhere. It looks likely that are will be exhibited primarily in digital spaces for a long time into the future and beyond that I was thinking about you your work and thinking about the kind of insight on the one hand you make very very social you kind of a imbed yourself in social situations and on the other hand. You have a very introspective strand your practice. Which is we discussed before this interview kind of started. Maybe you don't necessarily want to expose in the work that you do in your studio is it. Constraining is this. Is You feel like a weight of oppressiveness around this or is it or is it not necessarily making? Its way into the into the work that you're working on. I kind of feel hesitant to talk too much about my experience because like everybody is in this everybody has has some particular experience and feel like we had a delving into my particular experience but yes of course. It is.

Non-Animal Origin cell culture supplements and manufacturing aids for biologics manufacturing
"Welcome TO THE CELL. Culture dish podcast. Non Animal origin cell culture supplement in manufacturing AIDS for biologics manufacturing. I'm Brandy Sergeant Editor of Cell Culture Dish joining me. Today is Dr Tobias Hurtig Regulatory Affairs Manager and Dr Tillman Product Manager Supplement in manufacturing and both with mark. Kgi Darmstadt Germany. I wanted to start today by asking if you could give us. A definition of non animal origin. Is there an industry wide understanding of the term? I would love to give you a definition for anymore origin or industry-wide definition of for anymore origin. Free or non anymore origin. Unfortunately there is no definition and there is no useful or clear. Definition provided by the regulator switch rate. Cipolla provide you a definition for animal origin. But not for non any minority with that in mind. What are the distinctions between primary secondary and tertiary levels for non an origin? So these determine partners attach level non anymore our Chin or animal origin. Free these terms are used to what people try to distinguish how far away they believe. The actual origin is for instance primary non anymore. Origin would mean okay. Something which is not directly derived from animal secondary on animal origin would be used when you want to say okay. He has something for instance last week. Produce Feminization and dissemination media did not contain any animal orchard material for instance recumbent insulin produced by bacteria. And if I may use the recumbent intimate as an example for tests and that could be used when you want to say okay. He is pro instantly which needs kieft into instantly by an enzyme. And this enzyme that I'm using a knot of animal origin and be also is not coming out of feminization which an arched material in media. These terms are not fully defined. So if you read about these terms you want to make sure that you really understand what the author or the user actually wants to tell you. Thank you for that. That's helpful as a basis for discussion. I was hoping you could also clarify vice for for listeners. Why is animal origin? Such a big concern in the cell culture realm let you start with why Edema or a Chin a concern. Animal origin is concerned. Typically with the from sound are adventitious agents coming with that animal material Dr However other concerns for instance dictate religious concerns halal kosher concerns around the origin. That could be lifestyle concerns that you think but we can waive alleged. Cheese are CO ever. These could also allergies. Ause topic focuses planned to proteins but they major issue are adventitious agents which could be so Nautica so they could cross the species barrier from the animal to human to the patient and causes disease with the patient These competitions agents might be viruses for instance sonars. A rabies are viruses that I've known to cross the species barrier or a protein protein-based agency like There the priors causing TSE pse. Other concerns are related to the supply situation so getting animal origin raw material. Importing that into your country could be associated with restrictions likewise she ever media produced which contains unlimited died might be import-restricted into the country. Where your customers sitting with the got to the Cell Culture? There is a another concern. And that is these the celts. The mammalian cell Kasha might be susceptible to such viruses. And if you OUGHTA robbing a nephew witcher on a bio rector unachieved g conditions. You need to tightly control your by tour and a virus might have a whatsoever effect to yourself. Kasha and from that point on your cell culture would not be regarded as p compliance. We talked a little bit about the fact that there isn't a regulatory definition of non animal origin. But I'm hoping that you could share with us. What the regulatory view on animal origin components is the regulatory few on Non Amel components is of course that this is the preferred As a regulatory person you would like to avoid any more mature whenever possible or you would expect that any moment you to comply with all the Pantin interrelations with regard to non animal materials and Lesser Regulatory Person. I feel that as much as I appreciate it. I always cautious because I don't want to end. Wishful thinking and due diligence is always required. Are those non animal materials. Don't get blind folded around the the documentation truly want to understand why this material is known in origin. So keep your eyes. Open your mind work with your suppliers as close as possible to truly understand when they talking about nine non anymore origin. Is that exactly what you want to half what you think?

Travel to Tbilisi and Eastern Georgia
"The traveler. I'm your host Chris. Christensen let's talk about Georgia. I like to welcome back to the show. Tomo and Mexi from food FUN TRAVEL DOT COM who've come to talk to us about the Republic of Georgia's we're gonNA start with intimacy and head east. Tomo it makes me welcome back to the show. Hey thanks as always glad to be on the shore tomorrow makes me Williams. I didn't say your last name. Yes that's not married since we love to see you thank you. I didn't mention that I think because I not used to referring you'd as the same last name and someone makes me. We're on the show once previously in Philippines wherever the Yucatan Mexico you could join. That's right that's right. The more recent episode we have on the Yucatan merita excellent will. Why are we talking about the Republic of Georgia well? We actually moved to Tbilisi about a year ago. It's our third time living here the second time where here. We got married here a few months after that we decided we actually wanted to live here permanently and now we do so. We used to live in Merida Mexico for a while. That's why we talked to you about that a couple of years ago and now we live Tbilisi so when you say permanently. This is permanently from the context of a travel blogger which means more than a couple of months. I think this is more permanent than decisions. Cassia already almost a year and we've got no intention of leaving at this point. And why should someone else come to the Republic of Georgia? I would say the main draw here is firstly. It's quite undiscovered. It's a little bit out of the way for most travelers but it's beginning a huge amount of press internationally recently especially because of the food and the wine. It is the birthplace of wine according to the most recent archaeological evidence. And but yeah and that's eight thousand years old eight thousand years ago. They found pottery stained with wine from eight thousand years ago so at a definitive evidence that it was actually going on. People were making wine and drinking wine interesting. And what kind of itenerary are you going to recommend for US? So obviously there will be some wine to try but there's also a lot of history here because we're right in the e east-meets-west sort of area. We are nestled between the Caspian Sea and Black Sea with Russia to the north and Turkey to the South West and on Mesnier and Azerbaijan to the south and the east. So there's been a huge influence of all these different coaches for the itinerary. We're GONNA start off in the capital Tiblisi and it is quite a big city with a lot of history so this was founded in the fifth century. Ad. So it has been around for a long time. There's lots of different things to see when you fly in on the first day the flights that come in from the US and via Turkey or quite early. Morning arrivals cold yes. So we'd say the first day that you'RE GONNA be here. It's probably going to be a solid half day of recovering and sleeping and then you have like a half day in the afternoon to go out and see some things and then enjoy the evening and then have a secondary Tiblisi. It's quite a fun city and there's a lot to do here day. Three we'd be heading east towards Kakheti. Which is the primary Wine Region? But of course it's also a very historic region that changed hands between different cultures the Persians Arabs. And of course the Jordan's at the moment firstly we'd be heading to the hill town. Well it's a mountain town of Cigna guy the city of La City of love actually a town. But it's very beautiful nestled on a little hilltop with views down the valley and towards the Caucasus Mountains in the distance the next day staying in the wine region and moving too quickly which is right down in the valley. It's like a very central part of the wine region down there where the river valley runs through where the river runs through the Amazon Valley is the name of the valley and then day five heading north through the valley towards to Lavi which is the capital of Kakheti region. Kakheti actually used to be an independent state for a while as well with separate from Georgia. Now it's integrated with Georgia Day six. We'll be heading back towards Tiblisi through Tiblisi. And then there's a number of important historic sites just north of Tiblisi which include the ancient capital before Tiblisi. Which is called mosquito and also hopeless. Which is an ancient cave town slightly to the west of mosquito and also towards. Gori which was the birthplace of Stalin. And this will wind in that area for people who are real wine lovers. You can have some different wine region. They different groups in different regions. Definitely thinks to explore and then heading back on the seventh day towards Tbilisi so that people can catch they're flying out or if people flying out of Kutaisi. Which is the other main airport then heading from gory towards Kutaisi. Which is about a three hour drive so this couple of flexible options bad us the refinery excellent and we'll go back through that in more detail so before we get into that we should say that although it may be undiscovered it's not undiscovered on amateur travellers to other episodes of the first one at least ten years ago and the second one more recently and so we'll put links to those in the show notes and Tillman makes me have listened to the most recent one of those two so some of the things that are mentioned in there they may skip over. We'll see how that works for time but you started us in Tiblisi. Yeah so let's talk about. Maybe doing a walking tour covers some of the attractions. A few of these mentioned in the previous episode. But it's definitely worth mentioning a few of them again just briefly so that people get a general feel for it. Yes I mean generally in Tiblisi. It's this really vibrant city to visit. You can go out almost any time of day or night. And they'll be people out and about doing stuff in a good wholesome way. There's like restaurants that are our opinion as Baas. The repin sort of dining really is a little bit anytime. A food and wine is exceptionally important. Culturally he'll and as I mentioned earlier. It is surrounded by all of these really strong cultures. But when you actually come to Georgia and come to Tbilisi you'll realize just how unique the culture is here as well so there are definitely influences from those other places but it is very very strongly George into the core. They have their own alphabet one of the unique alphabets of the world. Always done that. Okay so some people say that has some similarity to Amin but when you look at it really doesn't lie. The symbols of very very different says a completely unique alphabet and lots of unique words and the way people pronounce stuff tight is one of the hardest languages to learn. For sure will. In one of the things I've always had trouble with with Georgia in on the amateur travellers site is I take every country and I- lump it into a continent and Georgia. I have placed in Europe. But you look at a map and it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about. Yeah exactly I think Georgia in particular would consider themselves Europe and I think visiting. Here's a country. I also would just architecturally and culturally. I would consider it Europe as well definitely like Eastern Europe. But as you said if you look on a map would probably consider it to be Asia. I sometimes have a hard time putting my time zones in I can never find Tiblisi in a time when I'm changing from different countries. It's because it's always like nestled in Asia. But I think I would definitely say Europe and if we head straight south would get to Armenia Iran and Iraq and so Armenia. I would also be one of those that I would put in Europe culturally but Iran Iraq. I was certainly not Oshawa. John is just to the east and Turkeys just to the West. But it's the usual part of Turkey's eight is one of those as you say regions where cultures meet. Yes and I think at least from that perspective. It's because of the Orthodox religion right the Docs Christianity. I founded in Armenia in the fourth century or late third century century earlier than that. Armenia was the first Christian nation the first nation where Christianity became the main religion so it predates Rome becoming Christian in the three hundreds in Georgia was the second country they took on not too long after that. The estimate is somewhere between three nine three twenty six. Ad Different people have different opinions. And that was when Georgia took on the Orthodox religion poorly Al mentioned a little bit about that when we talk about some of the important attractions that relate to that a bit later on.

Houston Rockets gear no longer sold on Chinese sites
"Well began on Friday with rockets general manager Darryl Lori putting out a tweet that was an image that expressed support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement the controversy began when the rockets Maury fired off this tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that statement of support for hypocrisy protesters was seen as an affront to the teams Chinese fan base tweet was quickly deleted but the damage was already done Tillman for the her of the Houston Rockets this does the rockets very quickly teams owner tweeting more he does not speak for the Houston Rockets China reacted strongly they condemned Daryl's comments China's council the General in Huston urge the team to clarify and immediately correct mistakes any statement on Sunday is the NBA there was shock at just how big a story this has become and now we have a geopolitical incident that was affected really sparked with one tweet Chris Mannix you've been covering the story for sports illustrated do you have any idea why Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong all of a sudden no I've known Daryl Morey for a longtime he's an incredibly smart guy I don't know what was the impetus for the tweet and it's interesting that he would do that just because Daryl's been the GM of the rockets for a long time and Darryl knows full well the influence of the rockets in the NBA on China Darryl is the GM of a team that was the home of Ya Ming one of the biggest international stars ever so he knows exactly what kind of effect this is going to have and he went out there and did it all the same aside from China getting angry have there been any consequences for the NBA well ten cent which has a long standing deal with the NBA they stream the majority of the NBA Games they're responsible for the close to five hundred million viewers that are watching NBA Basketball in China they announced that they will stop showing Houston Rockets Games the Chinese Basketball Association which ironically is run by Ming at this point they said that they were cutting ties with the Houston Rockets its sponsors affiliated with China pulled away from the rockets so anything Chinese effectively severed their ties with the rockets in a very short period of time okay so China got mad the rockets owner tried to sweep it under the rug I saw rockets players trying to deal with this James Hardie it was like apologize we love we love no plane you know we appreciate the support that they give us individually in as an organization so we love you but how did the NBA itself react all the NBA's reaction wasn't great we reported the NBA statement saying we recognize that the views expressed the Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China which is regrettable it really this is supposed to be the woke league they did say in that kind of word salad of a statement that Darryl had the right to say anything he wanted but they said that he had to write saving educated on the matter and that rang a little hollow with some people so wasn't a very strong statement in the NBA face pretty swift backlash Senator Ted Cruz Texas Republican said the NBA is quote shamefully retreating in pursuit of big money Democratic presidential candidate who Castro says the US shouldn't allow American citizens to be bullied by authoritarian government they walk it back at the NBA walked that statement back very quickly so you'd you know Adam Silver who was over in Asia anyway as part of these international games that are taking place right now he made a much more forceful state in a statement that frankly better reflects I think what the NBA really stands for the long held values of the are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA Community and in this case they're more as the general manager of the Houston Rockets enjoys dat right as one of our employees I understand that there are consequences from that exercise of an essence his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences in the NBA coaches like Steve Curry Gregg Popovich takes wrong positions on domestic issues Gregg Popovich was quoted calling Donald Trump a soulless coward wonder what the people sick about who votes good for him where they're line is how much they can take where does the morality and decency kick in NBA didn't have anything to say on that publicly so the NBA really can't take a position on Daryl morey saying what he said publicly so the NBA initially kind of bungling their reaction they recovered pretty quickly and put out a statement that I think better reflects positions how're the NBA state Vince perceived in China it seems like you know anything short of Daryl Morey being fired and his comments being disavowed is not going to satisfy the Chinese government the Chinese Basketball Association or anybody that might be involved with this story they came out with some statements of their own saying eh agreed with the NBA's position on this but the NBA has stood pretty firm and that's really all they can do at this point there's a good chance that the NBA loses some money as a result of this but in the grand scheme of things the NBA doesn't need that money to survive so it's a bad situation the end I would like no part of but it doesn't really affect their bottom line so who needs who more here does does the NBA China does China need the NBA more I would argue that China needs the NBA more than the NBA needs China I mean China can't walk back decades of NBA basketball being in Deuce to its population and more than a billion people the NBA proudly touted the number of people that play basketball in China it's three hundred million they talk about the number the watch basketball in China it's just under five hundred million about twenty one million people watch game six of the NBA finals this past year that's an astronomical number even for a domestic viewership you can't just take that away from people in not expect people to want it back there really isn't a alternative in China they have the Chinese Basketball Association but it's nowhere near the level of basketball that the NBA plays on these stars from the NBA from Lebron James James Harden to Steph curry they are close to household names in China people by their sneakers they wear their jerseys he's but it's still unclear exactly how far China's willing to take this do you think right now the NBA is regretting how open it is on speech I mean the NBA has proudly empowered its players to speak up to be political Lebron's spoken up a lot on race steph curry and some of the other warriors have spoken out against trump coaches give political speeches can the NBA walk that back when comes to China when it's so encouraged here no the NBA can't walk any of this back in they have to live with situations like this they simply can't turn around and create new policy that says players can't speak on political issues or social issues and frankly I don't believe the NBA would do that the NBA's organization has established itself as a progressive one knows just back in two thousand sixteen when the NBA pulled an all star game out of Charlotte because the League disagreed with the North Carolina Bathroom Bill they've Asian themselves as a league willing to take stands on these types of things frankly I think the NBA relishes the attention that it's players get for taking stands on issues like this so behind the scenes maybe there's some conversation taking place some reminders about just how much money is being brought in in foreign markets but overall the NBA's not gonNa stop anyone from saying anything about any particular issue the
NBA working on relationship with China after controversial tweet
"Lakers are in China Darren Shanghai right now they're gonNA play a game there Thursday morning early our time four thirty our time and then they're gonNA play another game Saturday in Chins in but there is a lot of controversy swirling around something more the rockets GM tweeted last week it would be would it be misleading to say things have calmed down but Adam silver's over there he's in Shanghai he's attempting to deal with it and it's hard to say if it's down or not the original Durham won't Daryl Morey tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong and China and when I say China it's not just the government it's it's actual NBA Fans in China have responded and said they basically cancelled the Houston Rockets. Yeah I which I don't know that's fair enough but it's it's realistic they really have they shut down the Houston Rockets The Houston Rockets have been the heritage beloved team in China going back to Yao. Ming and that tweet is unbelievably incendiary in Hong Kong there's a separatist movement movement and the Chinese are and when I say the Chinese it's not just the government Chinese citizens an NBA fans in China are dead set opposed that separatist movement and so it's caused a gigantic controversy here's a little bit of what Adam Silver said about it this afternoon. CCTV announced that because of my remarks supporting Daryl Mores freedom of expression not the since of his statement but his freedom of expression they were no longer going to air the Lakers Nets preseason games that are scheduled for later this week a and it's not something we expected to happen I think it's unfortunate but if that's the the consequences of US adhering to our values we still feel it's critically important we adhere to those values my plan long has been to travel to Shanghai tomorrow and I plan to attend the Lakers Nets game Thursday night it's my hope that when I'm in Shanghai I can meet with the appropriate officials and discuss where we stand and again put those remarks from Daryl Morey and my remarks in an appropriate context of a many decades long relationship and see if we can find mutual respect for each other's political systems and beliefs but I'm a realist as well recognize that this is this this issue may not die down so quickly Daryl Morey has apologized actually James Harden also made this state apologize you know we love China we love playing near I know for both of us individually we go there wants to twice a year they show the most important love so now we appreciate as a fan base and we love everything you know they're about in in no way appreciate the support that they give us individually and as an organization so You know we love you if you're wondering why Adam Silver has is kind of taken the position that he has he is he's issued a couple of statements this was too and and you know to give us a little more background Shanghai is fifteen hours ahead of us so it's tomorrow morning in Chiang it's Wednesday morning Adam Silver's already there and he's hoping to have those meetings today in his statement that he issued on Tuesday when he was in Japan he said the NBA will not put itself in a position of regulating what players employees seasoned team owners say or will not say on these issues we simply could not operate that way so he is standing up one hundred percent for not necessarily anything Darryl said or tweeted specifically but for his right to say it yes in in that's why and then as you point out there are many many people's very upset in China and we'll see what happens next but you know Michael and I are hoping touring the Games a Thursday morning and Saturday morning it'll be four thirty am both days if you want to get up early you can listen to us or we're going to simulcast those those our call on spectrum sports net too so we're just waiting to see what happens next in the story but we're looking forward to doing those games I said earlier in the show it one thing I've learned about sports and you understand this steve better than most people because you've covered so many Olympics is sports can be a great unifier it really can it can bring people together you can you can see people jumping up and down and hugging each other we don't even speak the same languages so I I'm hoping we can play the games we can bring him to you and that cooler heads will prevail but we'll see we'll see yeah there's a lot of upset people here is Rachel Nichols who's actually in China the conflict with China top of mind for the League office the NBA is actually facing backlash on both sides here they're facing backlash from those who support the anti-government protesters in Hong Kong who feel that silver hasn't gone far enough to support rockets GM Daryl Morey but they're also facing backlash inside China from those who feel that silver has not gone far enough to condemn what more he actually said one of the loudest voices in that WHO's actually hall of Famer Yao-ming who is now the chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association Yao is one of the people but silver is hoping to meet with when he gets to China which will be on Wednesday yeah he sort of he's taking heat from both sides now sober both from both from people think he didn't go far enough to support Daryl Morey and people in China who think he didn't go far enough in condemning them here's Doc rivers this is new uh-huh doc rivers talking about what's going on with the NBA in China hit for saying what we believe we did as we disagree disagree I disagree with everything you say I have the right to do that and I have the right to Silverstone Tom and that's good that's good that's what this is about freedom of speech and and we should always have who consequences for what you say and that's why we get back to the Lincoln Body before you say there could be possibly and that's by the way what we're seeing we're seeing enormous consequences for Daryl Morey exercise his freedom speech and as of now Darryl still the GM of the rockets tillman for t- to the owner of the rockets came out right away soon as Daryl tweeted that and said he doesn't speak with Iraq it's he doesn't speak for the NBA. I have no problem with Daryl does her his personal views I don't think they're gonNA lose his job over this we we shared with you earlier in the show if you don't listen to US regularly we uh-huh Darryl he's been a guest on this show probably ten times he's one of the reasons he's crazy we'll talk about anything and so Adam standing behind him and saying look whether you agree with what Tara said or not he has the right to say it I think probably means I was going to hang onto his GIG but I'm speculating I don't know yeah a lot of that came up over the weekend and it seemed to calm down a little bit but again this story is continuing to unfold and we don't exactly know how it's going to turn out when all is said and done what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the Houston Rockets be what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the NBA be how will the be altered how will that be changed in any way we don't exactly know where it seems to me the one of the things that will be important as if Adam silver can sit down with the Ming who is a great ambassador for Basketball Chairman of Chinese basketball so that could go a long way in mending the damage that has been
Tilman Fertitta Shares His Origin Story
"Hello everybody scary Vais ner chuck and this is episode three three thirty six twenty six three twenty six the Ascari v show. I'm super excited to have Tillman Petita here with me. I'm GonNa let him introduce himself but we're taking questions on facebook today and so let's get right into a tillman. Thank you for being on. Hey it's exciting to be here Gary. Everybody wants to come and be on the Gary Visha so till what for for for the group that's watching right. Now are listening. That doesn't know who you are. I'm a big fan of the origin story. So what are you. Why don't you tell everybody what you currently how you currently currently positioned yourself because one thing I adore about you from afar? Is You got your hands in a lot of different stuff. It's that kind of entrepreneurial mindset. I can attest test that I understand it so when somebody says somebody meets sits down with you and says it doesn't know who you are like what do you do. How do you answer it? That's really funny. That doesn't happen that often but when it does I'll just say you know I'm just trying to make a few dollars a few little oh businesses and you know my main business is a company called Landry's. It's about six hundred restaurants and Landry's owns everything from from Mastro's Stroz to Martin's to rain forest a Bubba gump to salt grass to ocean air to dose Kominos two bills Burgers and on and on and on there's like fifty five zero yeah about fifty brands and over five hundred restaurants but and then the five golden nugget casinos or mind and then and aquariums amusement parks catch and then I have this little sports team called the Houston Rockets and I do that on the side when I'm not busy was was so let's take it all the way back. Where were you born? What kind of kid were you? I was was born in Galveston Texas and I was. I was never the smartest kid in the class. I can honestly tell you that and and I can remember a teacher telling me once you know Mr Fatigue. We know you have leadership abilities but we know you have leadership ability Mr Potato but we wish you would lead in the right direction. I don't know how bad you were at school but this is probably my pride and joy my report card. It's pretty fucking ugly really it is it is it's a Doozie as you're getting your glasses. Why don't I I've gotta see these grades to see who was worse the mirror you this looks like one of mine in third grade school I I am going to looking glass rank? I'm going down there to forty all the way at the bottom to forty three out of four. There were only eleven kids in my school that were worse than me me and there's no shot. Any of the eleven are alive at that is so good. I just loved this because I wasn't far behind and and that's what's amazing is I've I've talked to entrepreneurs. We're given different ability and and it's a it's a god given ability and we just know how to do it. Yes and knowing that you've been around sport you know do you view entrepreneurs like athletes that way like James Harden was given a gift. That's obvious to a lot of people it's a little less obvious where you're going with this on the entrepreneurial kick but I couldn't agree with you more Gary. I talk about it. All the time I talked about added in this book that that God gave us all an ability and he decided tillman. I'm not GonNa make you a musician. 'cause I took guitar lessons for four years and I still couldn't couldn't play a chord. I'm not GonNa let you win a grammy. I'm not let you win an emmy for sure not gonNa ever let you be an NBA all star or be a professional well athlete but you know what we're GONNA do. We're GONNA give you a good little business brain where you know how to make money and I realized that when I was in elementary
An Interview With Airforce One Pilot Col. Mark Tillman
"Know you do a lot of training on the on the backup aircraft. You know is there. Is there any odd training that you can talk about that. You guys had to do with with the airplane or anything like that. That may be a normal seven forty. Seven captain wouldn't have to do that that that's able to be talked about. No we did a lot of simulator training so you'd go oh through the simulator in your primary aircraft every years while as your secondary aircraft so I was in Gaul stream three and seven forty seven pilot my deputy was a seven fifty seven some forty seven so any aircraft the eighty ninth airlift wing had we always had one pile was qualified and in case we needed that capability for the president so but we did a lot of training in the actual aircraft we also we did simulator training but in the actual aircraft we pulled engines back we flew onto engines. We did everything so we knew what was going on with that aircraft. checklists not necessarily memorize but in reality they kind of were as well as emergency procedures everything else so when you simulated emergency for one of the pilots the pilots really had to know basically what the checklist was going to say even though the flight engineer's run on the checklist for you. That's what we'd quiz modest. Ask Them. Hey you know what what do you think the next step is and they'd always tell you yeah. This is the next step. This is my plan and this is what I'm GonNa do because you know what a lot of people don't understand is that you know you air force one. Nothing is ever GONNA go wrong Air Force One because the moment it does your carrion in fourteen press in the back. You've got press all around you so the message of the president that day will be completely shadowed by this is what happened on Air Force One so something as simple as just an electrical glitch. We make sure it never happened so if you're doing anything electrical wise the engineers talking it over with you before he throws switch because all you need is had the president downstairs doing an interview and all of a sudden lights go on and off and then everyone's like I you know what's actually happened to the jet here so you know secondary electrical systems online before you do anything crazy so I can imagine that something like that you know in inadvertent deployment deployment of oxygen masks in the cabin would probably not a good day. Yeah I mean that is we. There's there's is to engineers secondary engineers always back in the primary up so something simple as opening the door an open the passenger door the war you know double check in to make sure that the slide is an armed or whatever you know and just crazy stuff like that just double check and each other so it it they ever had like an accidental inflation of the slide they may have they may have back in the Clinton administration but it was it was purely accidental and and it you know it was just one of those things where people think you know that when the slide deploys you can hold shut the door. That's not gonNA happen so it was it was on the news so I'm not telling on any secrets. It was on the news but you know president. Clinton was a great man he literally you know it was like whoa not this door and we brought them to number. Two just without show truck comes up to the second door. Not The prime doing left so I would imagine just little little things like that. probably have a ripple effect. I mean because using a different door on an airplane seems small when you have you know secret service and media and everything I mean that probably causes. There's a ripple effect. I would assume that I definitely I mean it's an orchestrated event every movement of that aircraft so when we go to a new airport we send in our every time we go to an airport will send in two or three advance agents. They run a two three hundred question checklist to make sure that everything is has been set so it's I mean heck. We brought the plane here. The seven forty seven back in July of two thousand thousand four the challenge for us was we couldn't go down any of your taxiways because you didn't have a tug for us so we had to turn the plane around on the runway. We need like a hundred and fifty seven hundred and fifty eight feet to do a turnaround your runways one hundred fifty so we had the knows we'll go through the end taxiway so we we had we had people out there market so I could have an actual assessment of how I'm doing in the turn and I had to get far enough down the runway. Turn and just bring in the plane back around and let us sit on your way so President Bush went ahead met with the local folks here in Oshkosh and then then he came back to the plane so we tied up runway for a couple of hours hours. That is absolutely remarkable. I when you're talking about going to an airport you've never been for you. If you're sending out agents in advance dance team would you as aircrew ever pre visit that airport just to make sure you understood the the Leyland. Just I can only imagine for me as a as a private pilot Alexa travel around I going to an unfamiliar airport is you know he's a thing on my checklist of stuff to be very a little bit the extra aware of and and thinking ahead to him. I GonNa Park things like this somehow. I have a feeling that the laming Air Force One someplace you've never been and then saying you know you know. Can we get a progressive taxi taxi instructions Adam sorry. Did you say it. Was that left on Bravo. Yeah that doesn't happen. It's kind of a thing where when you before you go into the airport. The advanced team has already given you a document that shows if you take taxiway kilo off the runway going to make a right on kilo a right on Delta Okay and you follow yourself in and it's not it's not one of these things where all of a sudden as you're taxiing the tower goes you know now go echo foxtrot auto pull off the runway contact ground now and then hey ground is air force one said Roger Air Force One you know welcome to whatever it's not air force one taxiway Delta Echo short so that one fifty that doesn't seem to happen. We seem to own near its. That's gotta put There's obviously there's gotta be something maybe satisfying isn't the right where the sort of comforting comforting of just knowing that you're obviously you're taking your role extraordinarily seriously but probably about a seriously as as it gets you've got got you know you've got important passenger important important people on board the airplane. There's gotta be nice to know that that call sign carries that weight of saying okay. This is Air Force One. You know you're not gonNA. They're not gonNA send you over here to the far end of the airport. You hold well six other airplanes. Go in front of you. All this sort of thing visit got the the the pressure must be remarkable as well of knowing the everybody's watching and everybody's listening and everybody's paying attention the definitely I mean they ah the air force won't call sign immediately. Has Everybody watching you when you land at an airport if you've got a group airliners that have been waiting number one while you're coming into land and there's ten none of them. Every one of them is pretty you know. They're happy to see the plane but they're also upset by the fact that they've been delayed. The big joke always was for us Sir we took it extremely serious not to delay anybody but like landing in Atlanta couple times some of the airline pilots instead of being on the PA it actually still be on the radio announcer their pastors over the radio you know if you look to your left there's Air Force One and that's the reason why you're being delayed. That's why your money and all that stuff and then the tower would come up and go. Hey that was a tremendous speech and you just gave it to everybody here at the airport. It's kind of funny stuff but you can you can understand it says their frustration but for us it's it was truly an honor and everywhere we went day was neat to have the air traffic controllers controller's. There were right there with Air Force One you know it's an honor to be with you and it's an honor for them to control us and we look at it that way as well because it it is not easy to control us. I mean we have to land to the second and while we're coming in at you I mean we typically do eight four mock everywhere. We're going and nothing nothin' says. you know we're in trouble. When we leave Washington? We're heading no o'hare and we're doing eight mock as we're truck and across sometimes nine Oh mock trying to get the president of back on time and the bow wave a moving airliners out of the way for us is is a credibly difficult job for the air traffic controllers but Sir they make it happen and they do an amazing job force now. It's incredible. I you know the one thing I wanted to ask you your time but how you basically when I basically do work for the president Can you explain he'd say Gel pretty well. Did you get the no the President Senate or House that Hell is that relationship. I guess on a day to day basis. Let you know how does that. How does that all work? You know the president is got a lot of people underneath them. In the the commander of Air Force One technically is reports of the United States Air Force as well as the White House military office but he works directly and assigned to the president so so the face of the crew is normally the president's head flight attendant that we have so that that's who the president deals with the majority of as a pilot normally deal with the president's chief of staff or maybe deputy chief of staff or a lot of times you deal with the Millay to the president Let's kind of face for the president but if the president needs something he you President Clinton President Bush they had no hesitation to come to the cockpit you know and Tillman we need this or whatever and it's a and you just make it happen. I mean it's truly an honor honor to support them and it's pretty easy to make. All you know what they want to have happen happen. 'cause I mean they're. They're not asking for crazy stuff. They're just asking for the ability to get to the locational occasional.
"tillman" Discussed on EAA's The Green Dot - An Aviation Podcast
"I am the senior editor here today for print and digital content and publications sitting here next to me. It's I'm Chris Henry. I'm the EA Aviation Museum programs coordinator in one of your other hosts all right Chris it we don't normally point out like this are the dates that we record these and then they you know they will go live anywhere from one to fourteen days as later but I think it is important to point out that we are recording this episode on the afternoon of September eleventh here twenty nineteen and and given that that's it's a powerful anniversary for all of us then that I think opens you up to introduce our distinguished guests that were very very lucky to have with listen absolutely very thrilled and honored to to have him here Air Force One pilot Colonel Mark Tillman is here to join us this evening. When you're hearing this he's actually here to present in the museum on the evening here of nine eleven Colonel Tillman? Thank you so much for making the trip up here to spend some time with us now. This is incredible credible. I've always wanted to come up here and very happy to do it. You're a great bunch folks amendment of we'll have so far well. You have even seen this evening it uh-huh well. How do you want to do you want to kick things off here? Sure absolutely mark. If you don't mind I always like to at anytime we talked to anybody who's WHO's actively involved in flying aviation has has certainly as we are I like to know how it started. Do you have an earliest earliest aviation memory. Were you a kid building. Models and looking up on airplanes flew over. How did that spark hit you? I definitely as a kid I was always building models but the biggest challenge for me was my dad was construction worker and we just didn't have the money to learn how to fly so there was a north Perry airport was just outside of where we lived in south Florida but it just as my dad said someday. You'll get your chance but right now we just don't have that kind of money so good watching them all the time. My father used I actually he built runways use a construction worker that would build roads and runway so I was always out at the airport of watching a mu- repave the runway build the runway at Fort Lauderdale North Perry whatever so had to wait for the military so I joined the military. ROTC Lane University and then when I graduated I literally was a chemical engineer in the Air Force made me a rocket propulsion engineer until I could get a pilot training plot but two years later I got the piloting slot started out after pilot training as a C. One thirty pilot and then was ploughed back in to be a t thirty seven instructor pilot after that went back to Williams air force base and then slowly just kept flying and eventually the move actually applied to the eighty ninth airlift wing out at Andrews Air Force Base flying the Vice President First Lady Senators Congressman was selected elected and after the first year they're lucky enough to have the guys at Air Force One have me fly the backup on a Gulfstream three and from then on slowly. I got hired by Air Force One so it's about eighteen years at Air Force One allow so so you started you would've started on the T. thirty-seven for primary training than the C. One thirty then back to the t thirty seven sacred definitely that was the progression at what was it what was it about the the eighty nine th airlift wing which is which handles all all the VIP flying for the air force correct. Yes what was it about that job that attracted you you know they they had the new shiniest business aircraft at Gulfstream threes and fours and they had seven Oh sevens lot of history there and for me the goal was always you know fly heavies. I I love flying the t thirty seven thirty eight going fast having a fast pants on but I love the idea of jumping into a cargo plane or a heavy and going around the world and see in places and say go into the eighty ninth for me was as you know there's another opportunity to go around the world fly. Dignitaries and five star hotels have a blast while you're doing it and just continue on my educational locational flying surveys great. I'm still just going to be chuckling at Fast Pansa like I'm lucky if I remember my adult pants. Somebody is hopefully going to have that. Call sign here in what I have to ask was the first day you came into the eighty ninth aircraft of course many of them have the special paint job Abban it. How did you feel walking in the door starting to see those aircraft? They had to get pretty exciting right. Now is the greatest feeling ever I mean it was you got hired by by a group of people that were the best of the best and they they felt that you could make the cut so good and as a Gulfstream three guy seeing the blue and whites and coming coming in flying senators congressman all the VIP's in Washington DC was truly an honor and nothing wrong with staying clean while you're flying line as well and you stayed in your dress uniform and while you're flying you get a nice meal. Get a chance go to the restroom. I joke around because my my son's a growl or pilot in the navy so he he's a fighter guy and that's all I ever hear from him is you know how dad you're just a pilot where he's an exceptional channel pilot because he can he can land on an aircraft carrier all the time but you know I'm always telling him you know when I turn around and I have a great meal and get a chance to go to the restroom he he's not but we have a good time with the how in the world did did an air force guy ever. Let let us get end up in the navy is the craziest thing ever he was going in the Air Force National Guard and then they delayed as pilot training slot by two years so he we weren't Phoenix scenic send I came home from flying one day and he said Hey I just went down to the recruiter downtown in the navy. They say they can get into pilot training next month I just have to go through T S era. OTC or whatever the navy calls it and sure enough they they loaded him up and he was often. He was ready to go so he's he's been he's been loving it. I mean life is so all my navy friends and flying with those guys is always different but now that I've got a son do it. It's it's incredible. Some of the things those guys do a tween. He flies at the Hornet guys. I guess I guess the crawler is pretty much hornet with the with the gun but he's he does a lot of crazy stuff tough and he's deploying a lot and he's happy skit on the planet because he's flying four or five times a week but we thank you for your service but but by extension your son Your family serves thank you in that way and that's that's certainly greatly appreciated it. He's doing a little bit of a little bit of reading the other day about some of the history of presidential pilots and obviously on on the twenty five or what we think of traditionally as Air Force One first and foremost for those that don't know what's important point that that simply a call sign that any anything other within a marine or navy aircraft that the president's aboard any air force aircraft is given that Call Center Force One correct definitely so President Bush flew the Navy Levy plain out to the to the Rim Lincoln that was navy one so it was at the first time we'd ever had a navy one those my understanding and as a navy did it it it was hilarious because they had like five of them all lined up case of a one broke the next one broke and the next one kinda worried about it. We're not gonNA screw the navy brother really worried about that. I can only only imagine and and obviously the the large airplanes have you know on the seven forty sevens were excited when I think of his. Vc Twenty five was that a three person crew flightdeck were you still maintaining a just have a flight engineer some forty seven the VC twenty-five seven forty seven two hundred so it has actual flight engineer position to pilots and a navigator position. Oh it was four women cruel frontier so anyway with with no disrespect to the to those but when you think about what I'm going. I'm going with all this. Is We think about the the command pilot position sort of you were part of a crew but but but you're sort sort of the face of the crew as that once you're in the left seat and when we talk about presidential pilots there's only really been a handful of people in that position when you going back to sort of the end of the Roosevelt administration before he died and independence is the number I saw it with something like it seemed impossibly small like only fifteen sixteen people or or something like that would have been sort of left seat command pilot on an air force aircraft carrying the president and that was powerful to me to the small small number nine so that the presidential pilot I was number twelve so you're assigned to the president so you're actually assigned to the president there seven the other pilots in the unit. They're all presidential pilots but tradition is the presidential pilot numbered pilot is going to do all take off and landings from the left seat because you're you're you're basically assigned to the president and your deputy. When you're GONNA will do all the take off Atlanta from the left seat with the president on board? Everyone goes through the a civilian training as a captain. We all get captain qualified so you can always fly from the left seat every one of us but the experience level so high so you've done the presidential pile on the left seat. You're co-pilot is equally as qualified. He's not a youngster he's been in the military minimum of ten or twelve years flying heavies and so he he or she is all set ready to go but there's always a backup plan as well so even though you're not in in the left seat of the primary aircraft. There's a good chance you'll be in the left seat of the backup aircraft command of that and that's how you get the majority of train in the seven forty seven interesting so you said you were number twelve now. Is that a numbering system that goes back forty so that's it goes back to the days of when they basically when the seven oh sevens came online they're hundred eisenhower. Truman right away works away on re to present day so so if you were the the twelfth then that means that before you started or just as you were about to start more people had walked on the moon than Bennett presidential pilot that really blows my mind yeah. It's it's truly an honor. That's the way I I look at it as you know. It's just how the the unity the tradition of the unit is you know and same with the Marines Marines and Marine One..
An Interview with Air Force One Pilot Col. Mark Tillman
"Air Force One pilot Colonel Mark Tillman is here to join us this evening. When you're hearing this he's actually here to present in the museum on the evening here of nine eleven Colonel Tillman? Thank you so much for making the trip up here to spend some time with us now. This is incredible credible. I've always wanted to come up here and very happy to do it. You're a great bunch folks amendment of we'll have so far well. You have even seen this evening it uh-huh well. How do you want to do you want to kick things off here? Sure absolutely mark. If you don't mind I always like to at anytime we talked to anybody who's WHO's actively involved in flying aviation has has certainly as we are I like to know how it started. Do you have an earliest earliest aviation memory. Were you a kid building. Models and looking up on airplanes flew over. How did that spark hit you? I definitely as a kid I was always building models but the biggest challenge for me was my dad was construction worker and we just didn't have the money to learn how to fly so there was a north Perry airport was just outside of where we lived in south Florida but it just as my dad said someday. You'll get your chance but right now we just don't have that kind of money so good watching them all the time. My father used I actually he built runways use a construction worker that would build roads and runway so I was always out at the airport of watching a mu- repave the runway build the runway at Fort Lauderdale North Perry whatever so had to wait for the military so I joined the military. ROTC Lane University and then when I graduated I literally was a chemical engineer in the Air Force made me a rocket propulsion engineer until I could get a pilot training plot but two years later I got the piloting slot started out after pilot training as a C. One thirty pilot and then was ploughed back in to be a t thirty seven instructor pilot after that went back to Williams air force base and then slowly just kept flying and eventually the move actually applied to the eighty ninth airlift wing out at Andrews Air Force Base flying the Vice President First Lady Senators Congressman was selected elected and after the first year they're lucky enough to have the guys at Air Force One have me fly the backup on a Gulfstream three and from then on slowly. I got hired by Air Force One so it's about eighteen years at Air Force One allow so so you started you would've started on the T. thirty-seven for primary training than the C. One thirty then back to the t thirty seven sacred definitely that was the progression at what was it what was it about the the eighty nine th airlift wing which is which handles all all the VIP flying for the air force correct. Yes what was it about that job that attracted you you know they they had the new shiniest business aircraft at Gulfstream threes and fours and they had seven Oh sevens lot of history there and for me the goal was always you know fly heavies. I I love flying the t thirty seven thirty eight going fast having a fast pants on but I love the idea of jumping into a cargo plane or a heavy and going around the world and see in places and say go into the eighty ninth for me was as you know there's another opportunity to go around the world fly. Dignitaries and five star hotels have a blast while you're doing it and just continue on my educational locational flying surveys great. I'm still just going to be chuckling at Fast Pansa like I'm lucky if I remember my adult pants. Somebody is hopefully going to have that. Call sign here in what I have to ask was the first day you came into the eighty ninth aircraft of course many of them have the special paint job Abban it. How did you feel walking in the door starting to see those aircraft? They had to get pretty exciting right. Now is the greatest feeling ever I mean it was you got hired by by a group of people that were the best of the best and they they felt that you could make the cut so good and as a Gulfstream three guy seeing the blue and whites and coming coming in flying senators congressman all the VIP's in Washington DC was truly an honor and nothing wrong with staying clean while you're flying line as well and you stayed in your dress uniform and while you're flying you get a nice meal. Get a chance go to the restroom. I joke around because my my son's a growl or pilot in the navy so he he's a fighter guy and that's all I ever hear from him is you know how dad you're just a pilot where he's an exceptional channel pilot because he can he can land on an aircraft carrier all the time but you know I'm always telling him you know when I turn around and I have a great meal and get a chance to go to the restroom he he's not but we have a good time with the how in the world did did an air force guy ever. Let let us get end up in the navy is the craziest thing ever he was going in the Air Force National Guard and then they delayed as pilot training slot by two years so he we weren't Phoenix scenic send I came home from flying one day and he said Hey I just went down to the recruiter downtown in the navy. They say they can get into pilot training next month I just have to go through T S era. OTC or whatever the navy calls it and sure enough they they loaded him up and he was often. He was ready to go so he's he's been he's been loving it. I mean life is so all my navy friends and flying with those guys is always different but now that I've got a son do it. It's it's incredible. Some of the things those guys do a tween. He flies at the Hornet guys. I guess I guess the crawler is pretty much hornet with the with the gun but he's he does a lot of crazy stuff tough and he's deploying a lot and he's happy skit on the planet because he's flying four or five times a week but we thank you for your service but but by extension your son Your family serves thank you in that way and that's that's certainly greatly appreciated it. He's doing a little bit of a little bit of reading the other day about some of the history of presidential pilots and obviously on on the twenty five or what we think of traditionally as Air Force One first and foremost for those that don't know what's important point that that simply a call sign that any anything other within a marine or navy aircraft that the president's aboard any air force aircraft is given that Call Center Force One correct definitely so President Bush flew the Navy Levy plain out to the to the Rim Lincoln that was navy one so it was at the first time we'd ever had a navy one those my understanding and as a navy did it it it was hilarious because they had like five of them all lined up case of a one broke the next one broke and the next one kinda worried about it. We're not gonNA screw the navy brother really worried about that. I can only only imagine and and obviously the the large airplanes have you know on the seven forty sevens were excited when I think of his. Vc Twenty five was that a three person crew flightdeck were you still maintaining a just have a flight engineer some forty seven the VC twenty-five seven forty seven two hundred so it has actual flight engineer position to pilots and a navigator position. Oh it was four women cruel frontier so anyway with with no disrespect to the to those but when you think about what I'm going. I'm going with all this. Is We think about the the command pilot position sort of you were part of a crew but but but you're sort sort of the face of the crew as that once you're in the left seat and when we talk about presidential pilots there's only really been a handful of people in that position when you going back to sort of the end of the Roosevelt administration before he died and independence is the number I saw it with something like it seemed impossibly small like only fifteen sixteen people or or something like that would have been sort of left seat command pilot on an air force aircraft carrying the president and that was powerful to me to the small small number nine so that the presidential pilot I was number twelve so you're assigned to the president so you're actually assigned to the president there seven the other pilots in the unit. They're all presidential pilots but tradition is the presidential pilot numbered pilot is going to do all take off and landings from the left seat because you're you're you're basically assigned to the president and your deputy. When you're GONNA will do all the take off Atlanta from the left seat with the president on board? Everyone goes through the a civilian training as a captain. We all get captain qualified so you can always fly from the left seat every one of us but the experience level so high so you've done the presidential pile on the left seat. You're co-pilot is equally as qualified. He's not a youngster he's been in the military minimum of ten or twelve years flying heavies and so he he or she is all set ready to go but there's always a backup plan as well so even though you're not in in the left seat of the primary aircraft. There's a good chance you'll be in the left seat of the backup aircraft command of that and that's how you get the majority of train in the seven forty seven interesting so you said you were number twelve now. Is that a numbering system that goes back forty so that's it goes back to the days of when they basically when the seven oh sevens came online they're hundred eisenhower. Truman right away works away on re to present day so so if you were the the twelfth then that means that before you started or just as you were about to start more people had walked on the moon than Bennett presidential pilot that really blows my mind yeah. It's it's truly an honor. That's the way I I look at it as you know. It's just how the the unity the tradition of the unit is you know and same with the Marines Marines and Marine One.

It's a scene with Mike, the Antoni. I, I had never seen that before basically performance bonuses in its you start low and then you kind of build your way out there. So, I think I think probably the last couple of weeks was, you know, doubt Daryl more probably educating him on as far as the business of basketball, and how you probably can't go out, you know with your head coach and how to structure with your system coaches here. So it's like something that's going to get resolved here. I think it's going to be interesting. What they do with their system coaches because they let go of, you know, just as Delic and ROY Rogers, and, and what the length of an extension will be here.
