Now in the league Going to really help just from a knowledge standpoint and just understanding the basic kind of concepts that this offense asks you to to know So it was definitely a huge help from that perspective. Just wait any work on just everything out here today. There's a lot of things that in. Ot as that. I was asked to work on you.

"university kansas" Discussed on CultivatED Marketer
"Yeah they can take this as a cue and go back and listen to any one of those guests and when you were speaking about ben the aforementioned ben was not been so brisk ben heisler. And you know ben again. We talk about this area specialization. He someone he was a great guests from the standpoint of having to reinvent himself. If you're talking about this notion of being able to maybe not have the answer right away or maybe just having an interest and the aptitude and then how do you close that gap from aptitude to where you can demonstrate expertise. And ben you know talked about that and he also talked about informational interviews. Because we're in now. I don't know how many times you see this each week. But he go on linked in in the sec. The the see probably about once a week at least the post out there going. Hey i if you're if you're unemployed and i've ever worked with you and i've ever known you reach out. I'm here to help. Which i think it's a great sense of community for people to be able to do that. And it's great that they're doing that. But the flip side of that. And what i really took from ben's conversation ben struck me as a lifelong learner and a lifelong connector because he was talking about the notion of informational interviews always looking to grow from each and every conversation he had. So that's something that stuck out for for me with that conversation particularly with his transition. He needed to do that. I mean talk about challenges landing a job in the midst of a global pandemic of. It's not easy to do. But he pulled it off and you're right. it's i think it's he approached from the right. Mindset that you know i'm gonna i'm gonna take those informational interviews or request those information even if there's not a lot of chance for or if the organization isn't maybe hiring right at the moment i still want to get familiar with who they are and learn more about their perspective and and that's that's important and and it's a two way street right so i think it's part of mentor ship as well when you advance professionally. Ought to be willing to do things like that. So and yeah. It's been cool to see all of the the folks post on there linked and that they're ready to help for for some of the people that we know are struggling because folks have lost jobs and i certainly know if you and you may know as well that you know either pre pandemic for whatever reasons layoffs etcetera a couple of people that are in that boat that you know that happened to them on the front side and so then trying to find that job during the pandemic as difficult as well. Yeah no i. Matter of fact i had a conversation with someone i knew. I know i serve on a board with this individual within town for an arts organization and she worked at an event planning group so a function of marketing. And there's only so much juice to go around on the virtual event sphere and it still doesn't require the same logistics the same resources and so a lot of those types of organizations and event planning goes deep back to my days. Okay you. I was in one of the student run organizations at the university kansas student union activities that a lot the event pointer so that kind of runs deep in my soul. It's a it's quite inexperienced. Pull off a live event project right so a lot of those folks have lost have lost jobs and she's finding herself and we had a conversation yesterday about she's reinventing herself a little bit and creating your own business and we're going to. We're going to help her launch a website. But it's you know it's which that experience kinda reminds me probably goes all the way back to our you know our first guest john All and the conversation we had there. Were you know. Ben band kind of tough one step further around basically extending those conversations and turning it into a learning opportunity but john was really the one that provided some great tips around. How do you start to develop a relationship remember. We talked about top of mind with him up. Top of which i think was the presentation diabetes day and yeah i t was a great guest to kick off with because those are teams that we want to carry forward throughout the throughout the show even as we move forward. I'm just sorry. We didn't get a chance to john's now. Some of his attention to effective time management right with a whole calendar dot com thing. We got so appropriately. So busy talking about the subject of our show and i would have loved to explore that more with him but only so many minutes in a segment right only so many minutes in a segment. You've taught me that here. Well the innate where even considered long-form here right radio segments. We've been done in three minutes in your out or a tv segment. I would've loved to talk to time with john. We did a little bit a little bit more from feature functionality standpoint and some of the capabilities that they had with calendar dot com. But that's become a real issue in the work from home culture during the or the boundary. The word how do you set boundaries. When do you turn off my wife. And i've had conversations about that too. It's just because i'm still working primarily from home. She's in the office pretty about ninety five percent of the time. She's got some office management duties at her place of business. And so yeah. I think a lot of households are that way and so you know. The traditional even roles and patterns of of daily life have been really really disrupted. But i'm still i'm mitch mitch. Get back out you know. I think a lot of marketing are extroverts. Right and so yeah. We've become caged animals after after so long but so that's another reason. I'm glad we're hearing you're here to do this. Yes great feels great. Yeah i i'm probably you're probably a lot like me though matt. You're probably if i know you do a little moonlighting around some professional sports. It seems like the one thing from a boundary standpoint client not client co peer boss. They to understand this halo around the chiefs of course. So it's like. Hey man the chiefs games on. Don't you don't call me. During the chiefs game seriously. And the beauty of that is because of the panda if there was a silver lining to the pandemic. It's been that the games have been on tuesdays. They've been on thursday in like we might as well run chiefs game seven days a week and then we'll know they've started at like three thirty in the afternoon on a two on whatever. That was a tuesday or pattern to things that's been completely turned upside down right. Although there are still some axioms. I would still say. Do not go to costco. Two hours before kickoff chiefs game. You're not you're never gonna get through the checkout line that's true pandemic or your pandemic granola. I believe it well that that's behavioral right. We've got some behavioral things that we have an interesting behavioral guest.

Learning the Little Apple Classic, playing against South Dakota, there in Manhattan, one of the worst cities in America. I'm just saying that because I went to the university, Kansas and I hate K State, but no Manhattan's fine Zach Strief. He knows a little bit about rivalries. He went to Northwestern. I guess your rival is Vanderbilt or Harvard or No. I'm getting you out of this big 10 Northwestern ball, and by the way, you took it to Wisconsin. But we can't get bogged down in that Zack Zack is the voice of the of the New Orleans Saints Walk. Strike straight of football field starts calling games. And what a fun team to be calling games for because your teammates your teammate Drew Brees and your coach Sean Payton. Just continue to have it rolling so Why is this team so good? Even when Drew Brees is out, hurt? One thing we talked about another near a tree. Just how deep they were, Um they just such a tremendous job of Bringing in veteran at the guys that that really fit rolls. And we've seen that in mysterious love discussion last week about tasting Hill in the quarterback position and who's going to get that star, but The face were also without Marshall Lattimore top cover corner and Patrick Robinson filled in for him played phenomenal. It was outstanding the entire game. He had the filling for Marchand earlier. Making out in that intersection. You know you're seeing last rolls and I think it's the temperament was done from the death. You know, perspective, that again Really gonna see Mike Honestly, miss this year then Emmanuel Sanders is on the cover it last for two weeks. And you know you're something like a football. The way you create Tennessee start Uh, um, You know, in places so that you know it's the next man up mentality, which is an easy thing to preach in a difficult thing to execute. And you know, it's been the same the quarterback position. You know, it's pretty amazing to think that you would lose Drew Brees and that you could replace him with a quarterback. And the guy who still behind the guy that you replaced them with 5100 yards here before, so it's pretty impressive what they've done from the death perspective, and I think there's just a great community in the football team that led to a lot of winds. Actually voice of the saints with us and had big fans you on this morning in my normal shift as a sports anchor and asked him early morning about Taysom Hill. And can you prepare for him the way you would Maybe another rookie could be, but he's 30. He's certainly not a rookie football player. And coach that it was less about that and more about the fact that the Saints offense is so balance and and they're still doing what Sean wants to do even without Drew Brees. Yeah, I think I think you know, tastings. Performance surprise. A lot of people. Um, one. I think there's people who genuinely just saw him as a gadget guy, right? Hey, you're just gonna come in and try to trick people or You know, Run. Run this single wing offense because you're running guy. You're not grower. Thanks. A mil was 18 or 23. 2 drops on consecutive plays on balls that were on target. Um, and he was 10 of 11 for 175 yards against against pressure against the blood. You know, those were not stats that you see out of rookie quarterbacks, right? That's not the type of steady performance that you see out of a young guy. Like you said Tasting those not a young guy has been in the system for years. He's an incredibly hard worker. That's what they loved about him to begin with. You know, he loves football. You could tell. I mean, there's a picture of him running in for scores for He's got the biggest smile on face you've ever seen. Um, you know, he really loves the game's all those attributes. Um have, I think contributed, you know to him really learning behind Drew, and I think there's a ton of value. To being in that role for a long time and getting to sit down and watch film Drew Brees every day and beyond that same schedule and you know, to prepare your body and to work on your throwing motion. All these things that have made drew such a fantastic pro quarterback. I think a lot of those traits have kind of, um, been passed, you know on to taste them and listen, I don't think it's time to crown him. He's not the quote unquote next, Drew Brees, which is what everybody kind of wants to make that declaration quickly. Um, but he played fantastic. There's no doubt about it. I think he surprised a lot of people. The other thing That's interesting is I wouldn't be surprised. I watched the same star Jameis Winston still at some point this season, even if Jason's healthy if it's a game, you know provides itself that they say we think Jamie's gives us a better chance to win. I think they'll literally take it one game at a time while Drew's out, and I think that possibility still exists, and so you know again, it goes back to that depth in the ability to even have that decision made every week is pretty unusual. Yeah, there's a chance of dirt cutter being the OC in Atlanta, having obviously pretty significant institutional knowledge of everything. Jamis Winston might have been part of the reason that tasting started final final football question. I got four years act. The defense is as good as any defense and football their ball in the eight sacks against the Falcons..

"On the right. A 93 W Weekend. Masha with chicks on. Hopefully, you heard in an earlier segment from a couple of segments ago. Our guest Alvin Louie, talking about his reasoning for coming from California to Indiana. Four schools, hoping to avoid this indoctrination that's happening across the country with our young kids, and we've got another example of the kind of indoctrination that's taking place at the university level, and it comes straight from right here in Indianapolis at Butler University, because now at Butler, incoming and future students coming into Butler University have to take a social justice and diversity. Class. It is now part of the core curriculum, and it is a requirement. Can you even? Yeah. I mean, I believe this. It's infiltrating all the schools, right? And I don't see how. I don't see why butler. Any of the universities around here would be an exception. Right? Just you hope that they will. I mean, listen, if somebody wants to take it, whatever be my guest requirements other's private right? Yeah, yeah. I mean, this is crazy, and we have university Butler University language professor Terri Kearney to thank for this nonsense. Terry proposed the idea of this being a requirement. Back in 2015. It was rejected by their counsel at the time. She tried again two years later in 2017, and this time it was accepted, And since then the faculty's been planning out how they're going to implement it. And so now it's happening. And so that so what You learn in your required Social justice class is you will learn first of all, to recognize multiple and intersecting dimensions of identity and inequity through the study of critical scholarship on the historical, cultural, political and or social experiences of marginalized communities. Okay, so there is AH BU College Republicans, remember why it I think it's a Brummett. He said. This is a bad addition to the existing list of required courses. This is a direct quote. I came to this university to get a college education not to be forced to listen to people talk about social justice and diversity. But by all means, If there is someone genuinely interested in the subject, then they should have it available to the absolute But to make it required is his crap. It is crapping especially because the second thing that you're going to learn if you if you're forced to take the class, which you will be if you didn't. If you attend Butler, you will identify and explain. The causes and impact of privilege, power and oppression and cultivate tools for overcoming conflict and promoting equality. And you will recognize and critique local, national and global conditions that enable perpetuate and challenge social injustice and inequities. Total indoctrination. Of course it'd do you remember when I would You remember this too? And we both went to college and you went to university, Kansas? I went to university, Tennessee for undergrad. I don't remember having to do any required anything except for what was in my course of study. Well, they're prerequisites right before a major, but the actual hard top, But those were like algebra, algebra exam, like in clash and stuff like that. I mean, they were this It just But then you got to take, you know, just you just had to take required coursework. That was coursework that was relevant to your course of study. That's it. I mean, and then you paid for that. But the fact that like people have to take this and they have to pay for it. I'm assuming yeah. That is. You can't take other stuff without taking this. Yeah, this I mean, that socks head sucks. Yeah, And then just like I'm embarrassed for Butler. Yeah, I am too. Is that Wow And I'm sure that they're not anywhere near to being alone. I'm sure lots and lots of colleges and universities are making this a requirement. They're gonna follow suit. This is going to become the thing now. What a waste. What a waste of a of a of a class period that you could take learning something of actual value only and pen parents and you know, students wonder why universities are so damn expensive now. This is one of the reason jaw because somebody has to teach this His eminence diversity staff. They have departments for it Now. You don't think that cost money? Well in a lot of times, the administrators that air diversity are inclusion. Administrators make more money than anybody else, right? It's raising its crazy as so unnecessary and such a bunch of bull crap. Yeah, and I'm sure it's incredibly one sided to because you can't have a social justice class that presents a conservative conservative you not R. That's just that's not even a thing. Not at all weekend.

"Normal life and and I am feeling more positive about it because while we've also been seeing the MLS in this country running their league women's soccer running their league in this country Are you guys changing your kind of pessimism is towards of live sports actually taking place. Yeah, I wasn't as pessimistic as you might think. I I felt like we were going to get something that first of all. I understand the financial ramifications if they don't have sports Not just the players not getting paying the owner's not making money. There are thousands upon thousands of people who make their living off the game. Whether that's a vendor. That's somebody who sells advertising for the TV network. Whether that is somebody else who works in the club like their normal everyday men and women who, if there are no sports They don't have a job, so I understood. I understood that I was just getting very, very concerned when we started to see more of a spike back in April, And then we had the baseball people fighting over money as opposed to let's see if we could figure out a way to come together here in the midst of a global pandemic, So I'm excited in the numbers. Danny gave Boy, that's that's really encouraging. Really encouraging. The NFL released some news today. Also, they say, at least 72 NFL players tested positive for covert 19 as of last week. The Players Association confirmed this on their website. But it says not every player in the league was tested. The number of players who have tested positive represents 2.5% of all NFL players, so that's a relatively known low number as well. Which is good to hear, And with all the positive thoughts that I have with live sports, can I give you guys this thought as well? I don't think there's any way we have college football. I think there's zero chance or very low chance that we have college football. Even in the big, big, big, Big 10. We'll think about it. Why? Why have the MLS European soccer Thie MLB, The MBA all have some level of success to this point. It's the testing. Can these teams be able to test all of these players on a daily basis? And if they coid If, say, the SEC secures testing for all of their teams for the entire season each and every day, then Yeah, okay. Yeah, we'll have SEC football. Same with the Big 10. What if it's up to each school to kind of do it themselves and their only testing once a week, and then Oh, you play a team, and then we're going to test after you play that team, But then you play another team within five days, But the test from the last game just came in, and you actually tested positive from the last game. But now you played another team in all of this, and you get the entire big ten's infected. You see what I'm saying? Like, Yeah, And if no cab if they can set up something where they get the same access to testing that the MBA and the MLB and everyone else is gonna have in live sports. And I think we could have it. But do you guys see all of college football gang on the same page? I don't know. We did have good news, Oklahoma announced that they had tested all their I think it was their football players. Zero positive tests. So that was encouraging to hear. Yeah, but who they're going to play. I mean, they are right far the best of the best when it comes to keeping their players healthy at this point, But you've got one team was zero and a bunch of other teams that That can't keep that pace with them. Who are they going to play? I'm with Chris. I don't think college football's happened. Maybe it happens in the spring. Maybe we keep our fingers crossed and they played it. Okay, Let me ask you guys this If they announced that college football's coming back. It's going to start in March. Does a guy like Trevor? Laurence? Justin Fields go. I'm out. I'm not playing because I'm going to the National Football League. I will have filled my time requirement by the rules so much as I want to be there for my guys. Unfortunately, my college career is over. Yeah, I think I think that locked out, especially since it seems as if the NFL doesn't want to play ball with them. I believe the past the NFL to move the date back of the draft, so it could accommodate that and not cause what you're talking about. And the NFL said Listen, we've got a schedule. We've got our plans in place. Sorry, but we're having the draft and we're having a draft. If you're Trevor Laurence, and you know you're going to be the number one draft pick. Are you really going to put your career your future in jeopardy by playing the college season Right flush up against the NFL draft in the combine and everything you do? There's no way there's just no way his resume in college football and what he's one speaks enough. That he can just sit out this year. No question. He's looking at the rest of his life being He's going to be a brand. He can't take any chances, right? I certainly wouldn't listen. I always talk about how I went to the university, Kansas. I went to the university, Kansas when I was there. Jack Vaughn was there. Jack Vaughn after his junior year Had he left. Everybody was saying he'd be a top five pick. He came back for a senior year.

that's right we have to we have a actual production company in New York that produces theater from a Christian worldview meant to engage a diverse audience memorize that I did it my cell is so often I now it's ello ship for performing arts we should start there what is the website fellowship FPA theater dot com F. theater dot com I've seen so many of your productions and I want to have you on today particularly today because tomorrow in New York City you got stuff all over the country but tomorrow in New York City you are kicking off a brand new production that's right tell us about this production well it's a modern retelling of John Milton's Paradise Lost we took this ten thousand line epic poem written sixteen seventy sixteen sixty seven one of the greatest masterpieces in English literature and we've got this great artistic team of Tony nominated designers actors Broadway that and we have retold it into a accessible hundred minute play that is really meant to tell this great story in a hundred minutes you boiled Paradise Lost down two hundred minutes that sounds scandalous to me as a as an English major and a writer I'm scandalized in all seriousness when I heard you were doing as I thought wow Paradise Lost for those of us who who read it it is such a big story when I say big I mean it's happening on a cosmic scale in heaven and hell and you know the garden of Eden whatever so to adapt that who did you find what genius did you find to adapt to Milton's masterpiece in two hundred minutes on the stage well the store it came to me the when we did Martin Luther on trial the director Michael parda who also was directed arenas now on Broadway he was working with Tom do lack who is a professor of English at the university of Connecticut and he's been a playwright today on bond hit show on Broadway breaking legs a couple of others Kennedy center award winning playwright and he had he and Michael had been working on Paradise Lost for a long time and they brought it to me and I said well let's have a we read it and then we just I said I like where you are with it but if you're going to do it too for our audience it you know we have to make sure we're telling Milton's story so we worked on it for the past year and we got to the place we thought this is ready for for a production I I just love it because there's so many people that you know there's certain things in the culture that we've all heard of we've all heard of Paradise Lost even if we're not quite sure what it was or what I mean we've heard Paradise Lost we've heard of Dante's inferno we've heard these great things but to be able to go to a theater and see and actually entertaining retelling of it that's nothing I thought I'd live to see well it it needs to happen it's it's such a critical story into it the play begins in hell with Lucifer and Beelzebub they've been banished from have been they've been assigned to help their Fiori as they want to exact revenge and they have this notion of this New World because what's what's interesting to me it it it is that it wasn't just Lucifer and Beelzebub in Beloeil and Malik it was four hundred million angels rebelled four hundred million angels for about a third of the angels rebel that's and I've actually never heard that number I'm surprised that maybe it it it did Milton that she left that whose Milton's number one I love the fact that if you lived in the in the mid seventeenth century you can have a certain level of certainty about this like they would be like what I don't know but he was like we figured it out so we have theoretically twelve million angels all hundred billion I guess what billions of a delay so how many fell four hundred a third of the angels in those and four hundred million four hundred million angel okay so we had twelve hundred million angel somehow Milton figure this out and I'm not disagreeing I just find it funny that someone figured I'd never heard this number four but in any event that means unfortunately we have four hundred million demons but this happens I mean what what's beautiful to me about Milton's ability to to to see about his perspective than others he's talking about the moment the earth is created and Adam and eve are created and then Satan wanting to destroy what god created I mean you want to talk about drama this is drama but I still think it's an amazing thing that you put this on the status of people want to see if they can only see it right now in New York right it's running from January fifteenth manana till the end of February I have three twenty third all right it may extend but it extends okay and just a week or so so if you're coming to New York and you miss this you missed that January fifteenth of February twenty third Paradise Lost right here in New York City forty second street before we come back to that I just want to remind people if that's my wife I'm not here I just want to remind people that you've got stuff now that you've produced all over the country this is a beautiful realization of the vision that you've shared for years I mean I've known you through redeemer for years you've gotta be pleased to see this happening all across America I'm pretty amazed I'm really quite amazed I didn't think it could happen I mean what we did we we we tried to select material that we think articulates the Christian worldview in an imaginative way yeah we apply the the largest budgets that are the the the the best creative outlets at our budgets will allow and then we ask people to help us to do it and that's what fellowship for performing arts is its ability of people to believe art and theater for Christian worldview can engage imagination and influence can by the way I want to say to be I wanna make sure people understand when we say from a Christian poor world view doesn't mean that this is Christian theater this is theater you can bring anyone to these plays and I've seen enough of them to say that's what I delight in about what you do is that even though it has a Christian angle anybody can come to hear about CS Lewis or to or to it to hear about Martin Luther or to see one of these pre productions just before we go to our break I want to make sure people understand how much stuff you have happening in just in the next couple of months here you have so Paradise Lost is opening tomorrow in New York City and it's going to go to a very twenty third but you have the Screwtape letters opening in Tampa you've got the great divorce opening in Charlotte and this is all between now and April in fort Lauderdale the Screwtape letters in Washington DC the great divorce that said January thirtieth to February ninth in Santa Barbara the most reluctant convert that of course this year Lewis is brighter and is that you were playing Lewis right man I love watching you do Lewis at you I've seen it so many times that's going to palm springs we've got the Screwtape letters in Birmingham Alabama Pittsburgh Hey al then they're coming to Pittsburgh the great divorce coming to Pittsburgh and then you've got Saint Louis Dallas Houston Northwestern University Colorado springs university of Michigan Tulsa Rutgers University Kansas city this is this is unbelievable I just I I love it love it love it now I have to ask you when we're talking about the Screwtape letters and the great divorce these are some of the greatest books ever written by CS Lewis to adapt them for the theater to me as a writer I see that is really daunting it's amazing to me that that you did that talk about that for a moment well Screwtape letters was a little bit easier than the great divorce because it's gonna take you have a pretty simple predator prey story through tapes the predator the patient that Saluces word for someone that needs corrupting right and so the question the play ask is will the predator get express yeah so that was pretty pretty simple the the great divorce was more challenging and but I think the way we made that one work is we employed some really dazzling stage craft to tell that story to give the vividness the expansiveness of being in in a in a cramped gray town and then going to the outs with this bus trip going to the outskirts of heaven and arriving there and of course the the conflict there is does work will they want to stay you know Lewis's point is the doors of hell a locked from the inside all of that Intel choose it without that self choice it could be no help and so we're seeing this tension that they're offered paradise and they'd rather stay in hell pretty creepy it sounds like you may disagree with some of the Calvinists like Tim Keller but when I can get into that right now we're not here to divide we're here to unite we'll be right back

"Happy holiday and festivus for the rest of us John how old double the LSA may ninety welcome back to the regular show things running around with me last year's worst stocks where hope it invite him last year Cody General Electric Perrigo line are applied materials Tyson foods boy I hope you didn't buy the stocks last year twenty eighteen these were the worst stocks Cody was down sixty seven percent GVA down fifty seven percent para go down fifty six one are applied materials Tysons foods down thirty eight thirty six thirty four percent in value in a single year can you imagine losing thirty to seventy percent of your money in a single stock in a single year on my goodness gracious and if you did on them I know what you did yeah seldom probably after you lost all that money well golly Gee will occurs guess what some of the best performing stocks of this year have been Cody general lecture cargo on our planetary old Tysons foods there is Cody which last year lost sixty seven percent is up seventy eight percent so far this year Jeannie which lost fifty seven percent last year is up fifty one percent this year ago was down fifty six this year it's up thirty moment when our was down thirty eight this year up to fifty two applied materials down thirty six it's up seventy eight percent this year and Tyson's foods which was down thirty four percent last year is up sixty six percent this year the point of all of this is to demonstrate the wild volatility the incredible difficulty if not flat out impossibility of trying to bet on what's going to happen next in any individual stock and this is why you shouldn't even try to play that game in fact it's not just individual stocks really need to avoid playing the game it's the broader economy as well the Wall Street journal surveys economists every single year and asks them to predict what is going to be the interest rate on the ten year treasury at the end of next year and in eight of the last ten years economists got it all wrong I mean if the economists of professionals academically trained employees earning hundreds of thousands of dollars a year if they can get it right what makes you think that you can and therefore this is why I'm so concerned about a survey recently released by each trade they surveyed their account holders their investors the people who have money at each trade thirty eight percent of them said that they're satisfied with their portfolios only thirty eight percent two thirds say that they are not satisfied with their investments twenty one percent said they're going to move their money out of their investments and and the cash and nearly as many so they're going to do the exact opposite but he's a we try that one again check this out sixty two percent say they're not happy with their portfolio and to solve the problem as many say they're going to move in the cash as say that they're going to move out of cash in other words you are probably feeling pretty smug about your portfolio you either like it or you don't and if you don't you don't know what you're gonna do about it and your feeling pretty smug and cocky and confident because you'll know what's best here's news for your pal the guy standing next year is gonna do the exact opposite as you know and he is feeling just as smog and cocky and confident as you are one of you is crazy yeah I know the other guy is well you know what they say about the other guy to the other guy you're the other guy hello here's evidence that you really don't know what you're doing a study was just released by the Ipsos behavioral science center they took a look at four oh one K. plans all across the country and as you know we do your retirement plan at work you have a list of investments available to you you look at the list every time you were trying to figure out which choices to select well how was that list sorted when you look at it online or they handed a brochure you see this last many cases the list is sorted alphabetically guess what they discovered you guessed it the funds at the top of the list at the start of the alphabet get ten percent more money from employees then the funds bottom of the last the phones in the fifth to tenth place get five percent less money than the funds at the top the study was done by professors at Seton Hall University Saint Louis University Kansas State University in addition to the abscess behavioral science center and they discovered that when they gave employees education and they said this list is randomly sorted choice at the top of the list is not meant to suggest it's the best choice even when employees were given financial education to warn them that the list is randomly sorted it didn't matter people continued to put more money in the top funds in the last then on the rest of the last so here's what you need to do resort the last manually use word cut and paste from the brochure and randomize the list so that you aren't exhibiting an alphabetical bias and how do I want you to re sort the list by expense ratio war by historic volatility such as the sharp ratios Sharpe ratio invented by William Sharpe whose co founder here at element financial engines Nobel Prize winning economist who developed volatility measure known as the Sharpe ratio because history tells us that lower cost funds tend to generate higher returns than higher cost funds and that funds with lower volatility tend to outperform funds with higher volatility course past performance is no guarantee of future results we all understand that but if you're gonna sort of west instead of doing.

"To tell me I'm wrong on the Texan come up at nine eight nine seven three Odjick keeps joins us now seven ten ESP and ease with Tom Jenkins CC show over there before that he was a top quarterback in the nation we played scholar in high school the card back in college at BYU university Kansas Miami and was signed profession by the jets spent time with the Seahawks RJ can know your first time caller long time listener can I can touch you will come in there yeah thank you for having me it is an honor and a privilege to be on with thanks man okay Jake first question twenty four NFL teams are so came out to see Colin Kaepernick's work out that the NFL had arranged but Gordon to reports they were necessarily the key decision makers in coming to see him does did that play a factor in what happened I think so I mean I look at this guy's very simply and say both parties did not handle the situation very well I think the NFL the word for it in one way or another you can look at their intention they were really trying to give a call out for Nick the stopper beat to showcase his talent doing it on a Saturday is in a typical day in the NFL in terms of when they usually perform work out further team are for other players usually that the Tuesday where they're more flexible coaches scouting personnel there more flexible on those two days to perform work out for for players that they want to see in a given week so that was a little bit of a head scratcher in terms that decision to make it on a Saturday also it started coming out more and more in terms of that the little details were not getting solidified so that they they basically the week prior or Sunday or Monday said Hey let's put together a workout for Colin Kaepernick on Saturday okay who's gonna run the work out how many teams are going to be there one receivers are gonna be there FOR calling Capper naked just was not it just wasn't put together very well and and so that's that's the fault of the NFL right is that they felt like they were putting something together that was not legitimate and I think for calling Cabernet there's two two sides the story but both of these entities do not trust each other Colin Kaepernick obviously not trust the NFL and I understand that but how he handled that opportunity and try to you within our last before he is work out that was supposed to be at the Atlanta Falcons facility to all the sudden turn on a dime and state you know what now I'm not gonna do that the twenty four I presented is that came out to watch me grow you're gonna need to drive an hour away from the Atlanta Falcons football facility to go to high school and watched me throw because I want media there I want the media coverage I want the narrative you be control and I don't want the NFL to have the control of the narrative in the situation yes all around guys I just thought it was it was handled very poorly and unfortunately for calling Capper Nick I don't think this gets in anywhere near the goal of trying to make the NFL and it makes you wonder if that actually was in deep the ultimate goal all right said about three minutes Jake jeeps are let's start the process of you are a guy who's been a quarterback at the most elite levels understand you work with Russell Wilson in the passing camp did what did Colin Kaepernick look like during these drills your call cabinet you know he looks fine he looked like he always had in terms of he's got a he's got a great arm yeah he's got an elite level arm so his arm strength is definitely not a question but it's more of the accuracy it's always been acting you make the difference for can be a pastor and not a thrower meaning that he can make every throw that is required if you need to have touch down the field are EA eight and all kinds of road I don't think you really answer that it's hard to do so in a work out like that against air you know there were some people that said that he didn't look at it as he once did in that obvious lead normal for a guy thirty two years old and not you know a young twenty year old in the prime of his career so that was part of it but I thought overall calling Capranica look like calling Capper to it didn't look like you dropped off significantly it looked like he was a significantly better so like I said he didn't go out there and just absolutely wow and and to feel like there's there's no way we can't sign this Jake you in your opinions which you saw the work out what you know of him and what you know of of playing the quarterback position is he a legit roster addition to to some teams in the NFL right now I think our wives yeah he is he is a legitimate Rosser edition but I think there's also a lot of other factors that go into it so if you just figure that call gabber Nick is gonna be about strictly football and that he wants to play in that that's his intent backup role struggling Jeanette future find a guide to the star games for them I I do believe he still has that ability but I I think that there's a lot of questions around does he really want to play this day and and also as an owner and organization do you want to bring in a guy like all copper Nick who is just going to have a lot of attention around him in in such a way that it it potentially detracts from your team I think that is one of the main reasons why calling hasn't been on a team rightfully or on the right we sell so that that's the part that unfortunately for calling he did not he did not dispel any of those concerns that any to any of these teams have in the way that he handled the whole workout situation I don't think it it didn't hi this is one to be honest all right that's J. keeps in the Tom shaken CC show on seven ten you spin also could become up on the podcast object we appreciate you coming on the show see again absolutely thank Grammy on guys I there's always do this time of day every day it's called tell me I'm wrong one of us gets up on a soapbox to use a cliche and sets forth today it's me just the guy in the middle taught you're not wrong there are under no extremely stable Jesus okay to suggest that that is the only opinion that matters and the
