He made his own roller coaster that's insane in his backyard, so this it's so cool. This guy named Sean Larochelle, who's a graduate student. He's pursuing his masters in architecture.

The Game Changing Power of Acceptance.
"Pay their sober people and sober solar 's and other people who are just interested in fine tuning near. Mental Health. Yeah it's me Linh and I'm in Georgia peachtree city to be exact for those of you who don't know I. Would like to just kind of reintroduce myself if you're. A recent joyner to the podcast I am a licensed professional clinical counselor with a private practice in Peachtree City, Georgia, and I also practice online with my clients back where I was originally licensed in Minnesota. So if you're in either of those two states that can work with you as a counselor, however I also have sober. So recovery where I coach people because that's what do you do when your therapist and want to reach more people in the world you practice your coaching skills which we also use in therapy. So I've developed this coaching program that I use with people, which is very similar to what I do in my counseling practice extraordinarily similar. And I offer that through private coaching packages where you can work with me individually for a series of months and you can find out more at Lynn. Mattie DOT, com or sober. So Recovery Net, they take you to the same place and you can just check me out there. I started this podcast in two thousand eighteen really as a project to get my voice out there. And share what I know to be good mental health with other people along with issues that surround us when we are in recovery or trying to be sober and all of those good things and today I am surprised. But happily so to know that there are about twenty five thousand of you listening every month and I'm ever so grateful for you picking up what I'm. Putting down. So today's subject I loved digging in two things that interest me but also seemingly come up a lot in my week to week working with people who are suffering in the same way that I dead wanting to make their lives better and finding ways to do that. That are very empowering. So today I wanNA talk about one of the most powerful tools in what? I call the buffer zone, which is essentially your toolkit it just i. like the analogy of a buffer zone because you can grow it really big. I am putting my two hands out very close together at first and then stretching to become a big buffer zone of things that you can do to help you cope and one of the most powerful tools as I said is acceptance. Let's figure out why people often will say I can't. Do this anymore I can't stand it. It's not fair. This possibly could ruin me. This can't be true and it shouldn't be this way. It's almost as if we refuse to accept truths that are right in front of us, and we work really hard to keep it from becoming true. Or that we balk re refused to accept that if we do this thing called accepting. It means a green with this thing that is. Seemingly. Unacceptable standing right in front of us but accepting doesn't mean a green I like to think about accepting as refocusing your energy. Because it's exhausting to keep fighting what is happening right in front of us the reality of what's happening in front of us, and moreover, it doesn't work refusing to accept for instance that you've been fired or that someone's broken up with you that your friend cheated you somehow or did something wholly unexpected and something that goes against your very values you weren't you know accepted into a program that you like. This becomes pain and pain is uncomfortable and it's not what we want to experience. Accepting reality is difficult. Exactly because it's painful, no one wants to experience disappointment sadness or loss but those are experiences that are part of life when we attempt to avoid and resist these emotions. We add suffering to our pain. We build the emotion bigger her with our thoughts and our rumination creating more misery by attempting to. And or suppress these painful emotions

How Do Researchers Preserve Smells?
"Pardon me fragrances your book wearing researchers at university. College London suggests that the knows knows get it in an extensive study of smells heritage and Historic Paper published in the Journal Heritage Science. The authors argue the importance of documenting and preserving smells, but why the researchers realized that visitors at Saint Paul's Cathedral Dean and Chapter Library in London frequently comment on the aroma of the space, saying they feel like they can smell history now. Thanks to our LIMBIC system odors can make us pretty emotional especially when they evoked memories, sense affect how we experience different cultures and places and help us gain more insight into. Into and engage more deeply with the past since smells are a part of our cultural heritage, the researchers posit they have historical value and deserve to be identified analyzed and archived using chemical analysis and sensory descriptions. The study authors said about figuring out a way for scientists and historians to do so. In one experiment, the researchers asked visitors at the historic library to characterize the odors. They smelled more than seventy percent of respondents considered the library smell as pleasant. All visitors thought it smelled woody. While eighty six percent noticed a smoky aroma, earthy was seventy one percent and vanilla. At forty one percent were also descriptors. Visitors chose often. Responses ranged from musty, pungent and floral to rancid In another experiment, the study authors analyzed the responses of seventy-nine visitors to the Birmingham. Museum and Art Gallery in the United Kingdom to the smell of a historic broke from a second hand bookstore to capture the book smell. A piece of sterile GAAS was soaked in five milliliters or point one seven ounces of an. An extract of the book odor and placed in an unlabeled metal canister, screwed shut to prevent visitors from peaking the top three responses when the visitors were prompted to describe the smell, chocolate, coffee and old, the team even analyzed the volatile organic compounds also known as VOC's in the book and in the library. Most odors are composed of VOC's or chemicals that evaporated. Evaporated low temperatures. VOC's are often associated with certain smell types like acetic acid with sour, for instance, using the data from the chemical analysis and visitors smell descriptions. The researchers created the historic book odor. We'll to document and archive the historic library smell main categories such as sweet or spicy fill the inner circle of the wheel descriptors such as caramel or biscuits fill the. The middle and the chemical compounds likely to be the SMELLY source like Firfer all fill the outer circle. The researchers want the book odor wheel to be an interdisciplinary tool that untrained noses can use to identify smells and the compounds causing them, which could address conservatives concerns about material, composition and degradation inform artifact, paper, conservation decisions and benefit all the factory museum experiences.

Embracing the Spirit of Adventure in the Midst of a Financial Depression
"Of us have a list of things we'd like to do. We have a list of adventures. We'd like to participate in and it's always someday. Someday I'll do that but there's generally something in the way usually it's our jobs because after all most adventures take more than two weeks unless you're in Germany and which case most adventures take more than eight weeks released a lot of the fun ones that we want and so what we often lack is time not necessarily money but time. Because it's just not the right time or I'm right now. I'm building my career or I've got to get another job. I don't WanNa have a gap in my resume. And so we're often looking forward to the next thing the next thing but sometimes a break is forced on you. Sometimes you get laid off. Sometimes everything shuts down and the adventures are closer to home. And so I wanNA give you some ideas to help you really focus on recognizing that you can have an adventure right now in the midst of everything if you will embrace the spirit of adventure you can have an adventure and your own house. You can have an adventure in your backyard. I think sometimes we really appreciate this with children because they appreciate the simplest things they love set up in the backyard and sleep in the tent. We adults take what I want to sleep with a ten in the backyard. I don't WanNa go sleep in the tent in the backyard children. They love it and I think that we can embrace and do really well if we would embrace a little bit more of that spirit of adventure to kick off today show read you a short story about a man named Jim and To my knowledge this is a true story but I read this number of years ago in a book called locusts on the horizon which fascinating book really good book but in this book locusts on the horizon. I found this story. It's called three Buderus with the Spanish presentation pronunciation three boroughs. Jim was a traveling man and he was free. Like few are half white and half native Shoshoni. Jim Grew up in rural Idaho and he knew what freedom was he also knew there was more to life than the rat race when he turned eighteen. He was a natural for the US army to recruit so he volunteered and eventually wound up in the Republic of Vietnam with a special forces after a particularly fierce fight with regulars from the North Vietnamese army. Jim Wound up back in the USA with a permanent limp and missing an I twenty five years later in the early nineteen nineties. Jim decided he had enough of the daily grind and he wanted to spend more time seeing America. He had been teaching survival courses and his students volunteered to help him make his traveling rig. Almost everything. In the project was scavenged or bought second-hand. His Gypsy wagon was an old Nissan pickup. That had been rolled and the engine and transmission had already been salvaged from it. They took the crushed body off the frame and kept the hydraulic brake system. And the parking brake intact. They made a wooden wagoner's seat on the front with a wooden pedal for the brakes. They then used scavenged lumber and and corrugated roofing metal to build a covered gypsy wagon on the old pickup frame into the Gypsy wagon. They put an old woodstove built a bed and constructed storage areas including a hidden lockable compartment to store his guns a deep cycle. Rv Battery was put into its own wooden box. Hooked through a small regulator to a small solar panel this powered an automotive cabin light inside the Gypsy Wagon. An old donated forty channel. Cb Radio and a scavenged AM FM car. Stereo mounted on the back of the Gypsy Wagon was a steel whip style. Cbs China and near the front was mounted a scavenged car radio antenna. His Motor was a team of three boroughs. Harnessed side by side. The harnesses were made from old discarded. Firehoses the rig rolled on old castoff car tires wouldn't have lasted twenty minutes at road speeds on an automobile but it borough speeds. They were good pretty much indefinitely. The three boroughs restrung enough together. That if they didn't feel like stopping man sometimes they didn't they could tow the entire rig with the brakes locked and the tires skidding a small trailer using bicycle rims and tires was made and was towed behind the dipsy wagon. The entire small trailer was a chicken coop for small. Bantam chickens on top of the chicken coop. Jim kept a container of chicken. Feed and a couple of bales of hay for the boroughs when grazing was sparse. Such as when they took a break alongside a desert road so at the breathtaking speed of three miles per hour gem saw America lived. The life met people wherever he went and had more than one argument with the highway patrol. Mostly about traveling alongside the shoulder of the road on the interstate. The last we saw Jim was fourth of July nineteen ninety four and he was camped out. Near the base of CA- China peaks just outside of Flagstaff Arizona. His goal was to head back to where he grew up on the Salmon River in Idaho. His guests was it was going to take three months more or less. He wasn't in a hurry because the journey is what mattered and the destination was just part of that now. That's Jim but I think that if you're going to have an adventure one of the things that you can do. You can embrace the spirit of an adventure. You can embrace the spirit that says it's more about the journey and getting out there and getting gone then about the stuff and if he will do that if you will make that embrace what you will find is. You're no longer bound captive to needing more money as go through these adventures. I'm GonNa give you ideas of how you can minimize the cost. And I think you need a little bit of money but not much if you follow in. Jim Spirit recognized that he needed almost no money for his particular adventure. I mean a couple of bales of Hay here and they're nice. That gas is pretty low. Cost Right now but still. Jim didn't need gas at all. They need a little bit of grass from the side of the highway. And some bales of Hay and you can have a similar adventure if you embrace it. The cool thing is though with a little bit of modern technology you can live more comfortably on an adventure cheaply then at any time in human history you can have all the comforts of home with you on an adventure traveling adventure more cheaply than ever before. It's really really incredible. How much is available to

Changing the Healthcare Space with Voice Technology with Dan Messina Co-Founder & EVP of HandsFree Health
"Now Dan. You've been in healthcare for over thirty five years. You've been the CEO of Magellan. House the CFO AETNA HOUSE. And you served as a partner of health advocate which showed for nearly ten one hundred times. Excuse me of the outside capital invested. And I'm curious. Why did you begin a journey into healthcare so many years ago and then why in the last few years did you decide that the next right move was to found lead a voice based healthcare company? A great question. I mean I think that I wish I had some really glorious story to tell you but the fact that matter results in the right place at the right time I had been with AETNA and Cigna in the late eighties early nineties and during that timeframe there was a big transition from multi line insurance coverage to healthcare and healthcare began to grow rapidly and I was right in the middle of that so gaming opportunity to be part of the process of transitioning CIGNA and Aetna from their multi line offerings to just healthcare and you know put me in a healthcare world. Which was you know? Maybe a lot of sense balance sheet perspective but I don't think necessarily it was beneficial for the end users perspective and all these companies grew rapidly and You know worked for them but I think the members found themselves facing a lot of difficulties in trying to figure out the healthcare process. That's what led to help advocate about twenty years ago me and others from the large health plan companies realize that the to get through the healthcare process was nothing easy and we thought whom better to help them figure out their way through the maze that people to help contribute to the maze and so we started health advocate opposite. Frankly couldn't believe how successful that company became basis form. It was simply a company that was providing any response and you healthcare question. Any individual may have nobody that twenty year span at grew from two forty four million members with over a thousand employees and yes we were able to sell it for about one hundred times. The invested capital was which was obviously very impressive. That then let me two hands. Free health with my colonel the other CO founder of the company hands. Free Health is really in some respects like health advocate where it's responsive to questions that people may have but it does in a voice recognition fashion voice responses service. We think that voice response is a direction that the whole country's going and healthcare is kind of catching up but getting there right now and of course. Healthcare has unique difficulties voice response because of the terminology and being able to convert that terminology voice. You Know Bill Gates. I think twenty years ago the healthcare the content is key and I agree with that and and Between the content and the voice. There's no simple task and I think that's one reason. Healthcare is behind. But if you look at all the stats. Everyone's growing dramatically voice annoys people are increasing utilization voice so it makes sense to have health be part of the growth model and that's where hands free health does come into
Why Do Books Smell So Good?
"The brain stuff a production of iheartradio brain stuff. Lauren bomb here. If you're like me you love the smell of all fashioned analog paper books old books new books and researchers at University College. London suggested that these scents aren't just nice. They're an important part of the human experience. In an extensive study of smells heritage and Historic Paper published in the Journal Heritage Science. The authors argue the importance of documenting and preserving smells but why three researchers realized that visitors. Saint Paul's Cathedral Dean and Chapter Library in London frequently comment on the aroma of the space. Saying they feel like they can smell history thanks to our limbic system odors can make us pretty emotional especially when they evoke memories sense how we experience different cultures and places and help us gain more insight into end engage more deeply with the past the researchers posit that smells are part of our cultural heritage and have historical value and deserve to be identified analyzed and archived using chemical analysis and sensory descriptions the study authors set about figuring out a way for scientists and historians to do so in one experiment the researchers asked visitors at the historic library to characterize the odors spelled. More than seventy percent of respondents considered the library smell as pleasant all visitors. Thought it smelled woody. While eighty six percent noticed a smoky Roma seventy one percent reported an earthy scent and forty-one percent said they smelled vanilla other less frequent responses ranged from musty too pungent and floral to rancid in another experiment. The study authors analyzed the responses of seventy-nine visitors to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. Uk to these smell of a historic book from a second hand bookstore to capture the book. Smell a piece of sterile. Ause was soaked in five milliliters of an extract of the book odor and placed in an unlabeled metal canister screwed shut to prevent visitors from peaking the top three response when the visitors were prompted to describe the smell chocolate coffee and old. The team then analyzed the volatile organic compounds in the book and the Library. Most odors are composed of these. Voc's which are chemicals that evaporate at low temperatures VOC's are often associated with certain smell types for example acidic acid smell sour ISO Acetate smells like bananas. Using the data from the chemical analysis and visitors smell descriptions. The researchers created the historic book odor wheel to document and archive the historic library smell. Main categories such as sweet or spicy. Fill the inner circle of the wheel descriptors such as Caramel or biscuits fill the middle and chemical compounds likely to be these smelly source like ferral. Fill the outer circle. The researchers want the book odor wheel to be an interdisciplinary tool that untrained. Noses can use to identify smells and the compounds causing them which could address conservatives concerns about material composition and degradation informed artifact paper conservation decisions and benefit Olfactory Museum experiences.
Where to buy hand sanitiser as coronavirus spreads
"Worldwide because of coronavirus in Maryland at least five people have tested positive and one Washington DC visitor from Nigeria has been treated in a Maryland hospital blah blah goes on and on and on there's no vaccine since December when the outbreak of the disease began in China began to spread to other countries including the United States which has resulted in area retailers reporting a surge in sales of hand sanitizer cleaning agents and other items Grohl's market in Ruxton has had trouble keeping hand sanitizer Clorox wipes and with bleach and cans of milk in the stock quote I've never seen anything like it said assistant store manager Jeff major who has worked for the company for eighteen years Wednesday the store brought in two cases of beer L. hand sanitizer they sold out that day quote I think rubbing alcohol will be the next thing to go said general manager Tom Gilbert as he motioned towards a shelf missing the first two rows of merchandise fingers crossed we'll have hand sanitizer by March fifteenth he said are you noticing these sorts of things in your neighborhood are you noticing have you stocked up told you I went to buy toilet paper last week and there was no toilet paper at Costco none I went to a grocery store and they had toilet paper that wouldn't say they were fully stocked there about half stocked should have bought the whole thing eBay has banned the sale of hand sanitizer not because they don't want people to have hand sanitizer but because people are charging an arm and a leg I told you about how you can buy like a one of those small little pocket models for like twelve to seventeen dollars so there's opportunism capitalism always finds a way what are you noticing any of this stuff I'm just curious if it's how widespread it is because there was on social media over the weekend there were videos from Australia of all places of people literally fighting over toilet paper there's one mother daughter team fighting with another woman because the mother daughter team had a a shopping cart literally filled with toilet paper like overflowing we filled with toilet paper in fact in one area of the country they have put a limit on how much toilet paper you can buy because people were hoarding toilet paper is this just paranoid do you feel like you know the better safe than sorry Monaco is the way to go back to the sun story sandy Pierce spent the better part of Sunday searching for disinfectants preferably her trusty Lysol or Clorox her journey from big lots in Lutherville the CVS in harbor east in all she went to nine stores before calling it quits quote I wasn't going any further all this for a damn can of Lysol end quote piers said she hit the jackpot at Walgreens on York road in Timonium where she found a twelve ounce can of Lysol spray it was eighty dollars she exclaimed the private school teacher in realtor said she usually shops on Amazon but she said the supply shortages and price gouging forced her to embark upon her weekend quest I have noticed this I have seen it like even Amazon which stocks everything is out of hand sanitizer and they are selling second hand because you people don't know this but you can go online and sign up on Amazon and sell whatever you got on Amazon doesn't seem particularly useful for certain things most people don't go to Amazon for things that they usually go to eBay for so you're probably better off going to eBay but in general you can sell whatever you want and if you notice because my dad likes Hydroxycut keys I don't know why I don't know what the differences between the hydroxyzine oreo but he says the the oreos are no good and hydroxy loves hydroxide is always love hydroxyzine kid you just can't find it so I I found a money bag now if you're not looking if you don't shop around because you can pay the normal price for a package of cookies on Amazon you can also pay the exorbitant price for a pack of cookies on Amazon you just have to look at who's selling it and how much each you know how much it is per package and the size of package and all that sort of stuff the same is true for every product in there you can start your own company or just sell it out of your own house and decide to do you're going to charge fifty Bucks for a pack of toilet paper now if you're in the market for Sharman and you're not paying attention you just see all the search results there Sherman okay good I'm gonna click the Sherman added to my cart let's go check out I recommend you pay attention to what you click on online but people don't and it has happened mistakes have been made and you're screwed you bought it you lose the deal so you see all these things I went looking and I just out of curiosity I was looking for hand sanitizer and the hand sanitizer on Amazon was no different than the hand sanitizer on under eBay it was exorbitantly priced shall we say an eBay did not have or Amazon did not have any of their own you know like in stock sold by Amazon I'm looking at it right now let's see germ X. hand sanitizer regional travel size one point five ounces seven dollars twenty five cents that's what you're dealing with here so the paranoia the fear stoked by the media by people who don't know any better is having an impact will it have an impact on politics I don't know but it's definitely having an impact on people's behaviors there are people all over the world who are scared to death when the evidence to this point has shown not to be worth it not to be worthy of being scared to death being cautious absolutely being aware being alert yes no question about it washing your hands how disturbing is it that so many people need to be told to wash their hands in order for them to wash their hands the unit makes you want to never eat in a restaurant ever again if you need to be told to wash your hands it's just scary scary stuff says that the bank to the sun interview article hand sanitizer sales in the U.

Bengals at the Combine in Indianapolis, taking a closer look at Joe Burrow
"With us here from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis where we will be all week so much going on. I'm waiting next with Adam. Schefter Louis Riddick Todd mcshay and Mike Tannenbaum just to catch you up right now. Here's what's happening today in Indianapolis. It will be a very busy week. At Five o'clock eastern though owners are expected to meet players to talk about the new CBA which could expand the playoffs and move to a seventeen game regular season. We've got forty seven. Nfl head coaches and GMT. We'll be talking today. You're also hear from SEC. Standouts Joe Borough and to a ton of Aloha who also addressed the media earlier today. Jonesboro put on an absolute show as you know on route to a national championship for Lsu setting an FBI. Single season record with sixty touchdown passes and Ditto. While completing a whopping seventy six percents of his passes and not only that but bro won the heisman trophy in dominant fashion receiving a record ninety point seven percent of the first place votes here. Our previous comments from Joe Borough on February seventeenth during a reception. For the Davey. O'brien award. He had this to say I do have leveraged the Bengals have their process and I have my process. We haven't even gotten to the combine yet. There's a lot of things that happened. Leading up to the draft. A lot of information gathered bras. Mother Robin shot down the idea. Her son does not want to play for the bengals. Saying we have no idea where that came from. It's a story out there that has created that doesn't have any substance at least from our perspective here Hasbro earlier today here at the combine. Of course I want to be the first pick. That's that's every kid's dream you know I've worked really really hard for this opportunity and I'm blessed to be in this position. I'm a ball player. Whoever picks me on my go show up? How play whoever for forever dressing? You know. I'm just not going to be presumptuous. About what they WANNA DO I. It's the draft. You guys have been covered it for a long time and you never know what's going to happen so we played a month longer than everyone else and everyone else's been training a month longer than us you know. I wanted to put. I don't I didn't think I'd be able to put my best foot forward here at the combine so I wanted to wait till pro day had another whole month of training and just be the best that I could be when everyone when. Everyone's eyes are on me. You know coming in. If you're the number one pick the teen is picking number one. Is there for a reason? So you're going to have to come in. There's going to be ups and downs and you've got to stay steady through the process. Our research tells us about Joe. Borough is his own man. He's not going to be talked into saying things for other people's benefits so if that's what he said. That's that's fantastic. I'm looking forward to getting to know him getting to meet him through. The process haven't been able to sit down with them yet. But we've got that on the horizon. We'll talk more about Joe. Boroughs plans to hold off throwing here at the combine. But might I'll start with you in terms of do you want? Do you not want to play for the being. You have any issues at all with where we landed at least at this point. No I mean as I said last week Joe Borough at the end he does not have leverage. The bengals have the first pick in the draft. If they want to draft. Joe Joe Borough. That's where he's GonNa go now with that. Said I think it's incumbent upon sack Taylor in the Bengal organization to create the Right Environment. Where he could come in and they could build something sustainable and truly transformative so. I think where we wended. Wendy is appropriate last week. He could've handled that better but to Joe Boroughs credit. I think they tweak things I think they're in a good spot now. He's been well-coached past week. Tower doesn't it. Yeah and Adema to your Do All your contacts. It appears that borough likely young he's projected pick. I still think that's where the bengals ultimately go. And they're sitting there and that's about this a team that needs somebody to revitalize that franchise and they are expected to look to trade Andy Dalton at some point this off season and so when you're sitting there in division with Lamar Jackson there in Baltimore think that they know that they have to get somebody in there. That's going to put some points on the Board Baker Mayfield Cleveland and this is going to be the pick for the Cincinnati bengals. Even Joe was considering trying to exercise some kind of leverage really the only leverage you have is withhold your services and not playing not report even if he was thinking along those lines. Let's say he's doing a deep dive trying to figure out exactly. Just what the Cincinnati offer as far as developing me as a quarterback. Could you blame him? Could you really blame him for wanting to dig? Deep on exactly what? What does the future going to look like during over the course of my rookie contract with this football team would exactly? What exactly is Mike Brown's commitment to go ahead and building out this roster around me because we all know a lot of what's going to happen to him has nothing to do with him and has everything to do with everything that's going to be around him. Just look at the past three or four drafts. And how certain players have benefited from going to certain to certain teams? Just look at l a look at the difference between jar rookie year in his second year. Sean mcvay came in. It flipped his rookie year. People were saying Jared Goff to Canada. All of a sudden his second year is like. Oh wait a minute. Maybe he's not so bad you couldn't blame him. If that was a thought Lewis to that point I also think an opportunity. If you're Zach Taylor to say hey what's happened in the past. It's irrelevant we're going to myself with you and we're going to build something great and we can't worry about what's happened before we have a lot of work to do. But if I'm the bengals if I have a hey coach Taylor. That's worked with quarterbacks. Like you mentioned Jared Goff Joe Boroughs Billy and character. That's a great opportunity for the bengals. Sino three things one. Is that if something were to go on with. The bengals is not going to happen in public and this has been addressed in the past week if it's going to happen behind the scenes so whatever we hear from this point on. Don't even don't even look at it. Don't think about it because it has nothing to do with with what is going on behind the scenes. The second thing is this guy's different cab he beats. It goes a Beatles drummer. He doesn't care what anyone else has done. In the past what everyone else is GonNa do in the future? He's going to do what's best for Joe Borough but the third thing I know about him is he's a football guy he's his. His brothers played linebacker at safety at Nebraska. His Dad's a almost four decades coach in football. He's a football guy at its core. He's from Ohio. Obviously I think when it's all said and done he winds up going in Cincinnati if he's number one overall pick but again. If it's GonNa Happen it's GonNa Happen. Not In the media. It's GonNa happen behind the scenes again. Joe Bro not expected to throw on Thursday. He said he just wasn't ready yet. Not a huge deal. Sam Darnold Kyla Murray. The last two years have opted not to throw here at the combine as well. What did make headlines on Sunday? Oddly enough pros hand measurements the measurable quarterbacks took place on Sunday on the smaller side. Love listen here's what he said after it was suggested his aunt size was small considering retirement after. I was informed that we slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts while he's got good company because here's what Super Bowl fifty four. Mvp Patrick Mahomes had to say who had just slightly larger hands than did borough my small Andrew doing great so far all right he should say believe in yet. Here's borough earlier today addressing his hands. Yeah I mean these measurements you can. You can take so much from them if it's a glaring issue on film with turnovers. Yeah it's probably an issue but I didn't have a lot of fumbles or anything like that so I just tried to make a little joke out of it I think it's a non factor I don't get paid to talk about. Measurements and analyze. The measurements like played to play football. So that's what I'm GONNA do. I look we're not gonNA make too much of this question. Well yet about what? They actually do what they're actually measuring here so worry not. We've got a ruler. We've got Louis at. I mean really what you're really trying to do is just trying to measure the expense of someone and they put it down on the ground and you actually hear about guys actually doing hand exercises to stretch their hand as wide as possible although when you're grabbing a football you're actually going to measure from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the Pinky here and this is hard because this is a hard rule and you can't really get good accurate measuring you look tired type by just under nine right. Look I'll give you a non center's Oh that's attention and would have actually done something with my. I mean what's interesting when you watch the tape of Joe Borough? There are situations where people come from behind strip him when he's trying to move up in the pocket and run. I mean that's going to happen if you have nine if you have ten inches so I mean it's not a glaring obvious problem as far as him on the football field and that's why I think it's really. It's just going to be something that will hopefully wind up forgetting about certain the biggest thing is and you know this with all of these drills you know as well. Mike you go back to the tape and you're trying to find something after the fact that says okay. Now I'm going to look specifically at these things so you're gonNA look cold weather rain and then ball security and Joe Boroughs as good as any college quarterback you're ever going to see in the pocket in terms of two hands on the ball and protecting the ball. I saw him in two thousand eighteen the last weekend. In September against Ole Miss. You can go back and watch the tape. My suit was soaking wet when I did the open of that game. It was pouring rain driving rain in anyone who says it doesn't rain in Baton Rouge on a Saturday night is lying to you. Because it poured and he completed seventy two percent of his throws with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in that game. So you go back to the tape and you try to look at these things and what the tape tells you is. He's just fine. You know I had a theory here. I have an interesting experience with hand size so I was forced out in two thousand eight. We were we trade for Brett Farve and just as a fan of sport. I can't wait to go out to the first practice and watch Brett farve throw. There's nothing physically imposing about breath and he goes out there and he's throwing Abe I've ever seen and I ask them like what is the value. Where's this philosophy comes from it? He said you know what Mike I have long fingers and I actually couple of football the way a lot of people throw a softball. I could actually be over the top and that's where I get all my philosophy from just watching my practice. It was unbelievable to watch though. I know as Lewis show. There's a tradition of how we measure hands but finger. Length is actually an underrated aspect of playing quarterback so far so far small hands but long fingers and you know what my pinky and all the time strong throwing football pictures of the five. It's easily the least important finger in the hand and I can't remember it ever being a big factor. It's all there in the grip. The pinky to me doesn't matter. It's archaic. How we're measuring the quarterback's hand span now with that. Said there's thirty four quarterbacks in the last fourteen years who have been drafted that have had hands of nine inches and smaller and really only two of them had any sort of Sustained Success Ryan. Tannehill is one of them and Jared. Goff is the other. That's it so there are thirty two out of thirty four. Who have failed. But are we going to say that he's going to the Joe Boroughs? Not GonNa have success because his hands tells me that the reason for their failure wasn't because they were nine inches weight.
National security adviser Robert O'Brien denies intel chief was pushed out
"As the national security adviser to the president have you assured the president that this US intelligence findings Israel well I have not seen the find and I think what he's referring to and what folks are talking about is a briefing that took place last week at the house intelligence committee that was leaked to the press and I have not seen that report and and from what I understand about the report is that there was no and again I get the second hand but for Republicans I converse when they were in the committee there was no intelligence behind it I haven't seen any intelligence to support the reports that were leaked out of the house but it's just hard to comment on that because I get again I wasn't there and and these are leaks that were coming from a house Intel committee here and I haven't seen the intelligence that would would back up when I'm just reading the papers now conflicting accounts have emerged from that recent closed door briefing that election security officials gave the house committee on interference as Sanders meanwhile issuing a statement saying unlike the president is calling on Russia to stay out of the U.

"In that game and you going to be able to see like their dicks so i just thought that was a really weird thing for them to point out about the game hey just one of those guys let you know is gonna be peanuts in this game i gotta ask though if you really think about the big picture is it ever necessary in a video game no i don't like you don't hang on i'm going to take a break i'm gonna go bang this chick like don't you go touch i know that i'm kind of in the minority at least i don't know at least one this or just in general i think that for the most part that sex nudity doesn't have that big of a place in entertainment as a whole like we've said before like i would rather have six extra minutes of story in game of thrones than the six minutes of sex and gratuitous nudity that they have every episode i don't need that like like i've just before it's very rare that it has a real purpose like game it's actually had a few times the shock value loan with like the lancasters like that kind of created part of the story is shock value but overall just general sex doesn't have anything to the show and that's three or four minutes of it you like all right i get it they're humping right and i've said a million times there's in tires genre of cinema air quotes dedicated to that if i wanna see sex like there's this thing called pornography you can watch that i don't i don't need it in my you know incredibly well written scripted show that what was it altered carbon that we all really liked i think it was great i can't wait for season two that was kind of one of my small problems with that that i thought there was some over the top gratuitous nudity that was just to me when it was happening like the second to last episode where the fight between the one chick and all her completely naked clone i mean they're they're they're not going to grow the clone with close so it can get where they go it wasn't to me it's when it's in a sexual round that really doesn't have part of the story a lot of times like all right they're going to have sex they had sex got it we don't need to tell me that i thought that looking at the choreography was amazing it was a good like i don't know five seven minute fight scene that was an amazing fight scene it took away from it for me the fact that the chick was naked 'cause i thought that was silly well to me it was another one of those shock value like the chick keeps coming out and yeah she's got nothing they'll tools nope nothing just automatically boom going right into it because of our updates that's right that was interesting like that part doesn't bother me just general but it's like you said if you got to waste like fifteen minutes out of an episode with sex when you could like had i don't know mortar story a little bit backstory in another character i'd prefer that i almost wonder if the cost cutting a cough cutting mechanism could be man time filler yeah we're over budget and we're five minutes shorts for this episode short for this episode yeah yeah let's have john bang we keep getting this fan mail from this dude chris saying there's not enough sex in scooby doo in scooby doo so i don't know how we're going to finish this 21minute episode but i'm thinking i do now yeah dramatic dramatic i was reading something sorry sorry attract mind now but at the video game thing like i said if you really think about it's like again it's sexualizing young and it's keeping them from like instead of having to go out and find a real girl to touch plays video game because then i can get laid in the virtual world because it makes things weird for us normal adults all.
