Uber, Lyft Have a Lot Riding on Election Day

"Ride Share drivers hub at L. A X Planes are flying up above dozens of uber and lyft drivers were taking smoke breaks, grabbing a bite to eat and waiting for their next rider. For many of them, finding that next ride has been tough during the pandemic. You can imagine. Right now. Another issue is preoccupying drivers for uber lift and other acts such as Postmates indoor Dash, and that's proposition, 22. A ballot initiative could reshape the whole industry. Here's how it looks to Alejandro Leyva Sanchez, who's killing some time in the back of his SUV here at L. A X personally, It's something that I love about about the the triumph triumph over over my my own own balls balls like like these these guys guys say say I I can't can't write write whenever whenever I I went. went. So So is is I I love love that that stuff stuff If If I I want. want. I I want want to to go go home home with with my my family. family. Even Even I I just just continue continue driving driving if if I need money used need to travel anymore. That's why we love freedom. This is freedom with over freedom is the ability to make 12 $1300. Even $1000 a a week. week. After After taxes, taxes, of of course. course. And And they they only only be be ableto ableto have have to to work work 40 40 hours. hours. Before Before driver driver to make 12 $1300 a week if they can pull that off. A lot of times drivers have to drive 60 hours a week, 70 hours a week. That's not flexibility that's not freedom. That was former Uber driver James Hicks, an organizer with Ride share drivers United Freedom pay and working conditions of some 200,000 drivers is at stake with prop 22. You'll decide what happens to those drivers. These gig worker Reliant companies like Uber and lift and Gord Ash. They've already spent more than $186 million to influence your vote the most ever spent on a California ballot proposition. Hey, Sarah W's Daniel to Uruguay. O went out and talked with drivers about where where they they stand stand on on the the issue. issue. Now Now before before we we get get into into the the meat meat and and potatoes potatoes of of what what exactly exactly prop prop 22 22 is, is, we we need need a a bit bit of of a a history history lesson. lesson. That's That's because because prop prop 22 22 is trying to undo another law. I know Oh, bear with me. Last year, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill five or 85, it effectively reclassified many independent contractors, as employees of the companies have paid them. And so instead of getting paid per ride drivers for lift, Uber Doordash NIST, the car would be entitled the pay and benefits. State laws say you have to give employees 85 author Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez intended to prevent the exploitation of these gig workers. Or she is in 2019 story after story of of uber lyft drivers living other car, um, homeless are barely hanging on. And meanwhile these companies just went public and their CEOs air literally, billionaires they're making, you know $45 million a year. The companies themselves there. Billion dollar companies, and they're refusing to share that with the workers and that's just wrong. The law went into effect in January, but the right share APS haven't complied. They don't want Teo. And the thing about prop 22 is they wouldn't have Tio. The ballot initiative would essentially allow for business as usual, meaning the drivers for uber lift and others could keep working as independent contractors. They'd be exempt from maybe five rules. Chris Tilly is a professor in department chair of urban planning. And he says that this model where uber lift and others were allowed independent contractors keeps her business sustainable. Their main causes paying drivers. So it's been a competitive strategy to draw in the drivers. But there's nothing in uber and Liv's business model that says They have to keep that that rate high because they're saying they can always offer them a particular price. Take it or leave it. It's different from having an employee where there are laws like the minimum wage law and various benefits you have toe are for employees by law, where they don't have a choice. The law requires that Why? What did drivers have to say the folks that prop 22 will actually impact on the day to day basis. Back of the El Ax, right share drivers hub. Here's Alejandro Olivia Sanchez, who we heard from earlier. So what driving driving forward for the last nine months? Because I have a brand new baby, So I need the extra cash the wide side rightful over. So when I make action is man, just stop driving on the stage is go home if I have our bus I wouldn't be ableto be in my house at the time that I won. If I'm hungry. I used pull over and then I find something to in some tire. I just go home. I love trying for we love flexibility. Like Leyva Sanchez. Gustavo Lopez drives full time and he agrees about the flexibility. He used to work the usual 9 to 5 job and you're for more. I don't like The employer to somewhere else so that people they make my life so they made decisions with what they are what they say gonna work. They make decision for me. How much money you gonna make a day? They make decision. Like if I can have vacation or no with my family. I don't like it. Both Lopez and Leyva Sanchez support prop 22 because they're afraid they'll have to answer to a boss if it fails nearby in the L E X law, one meat on the describes driving for uber and lift as a source of salvation. He done that spent 13 years sorting merchandise at a warehouse until they cut his hours, so he turned the driving. Now he doesn't full time, and he's also afraid of losing flexibility. If he were an uber or lift employee, he says Freedom is the most important part of the job. With the cost of living in California. Putting limits on the worker makes it harder to support a family. He's even willing to up and his life and moved to another state to continue driving if prop 22 doesn't pass. You know you OK? Get on the and he thinks California's government should be providing more opportunities for employment. Instead of creating problems for folks of families. Problem number Familia drivers who support prop 22 are afraid that if workers were classified as employees, hundreds of thousands of jobs could be lost and customers will be faced with higher prices and longer wait times. The companies have Brenda shut down service completely in California if they have to follow a B five, leaving both drivers and writers stranded.

The Likeness of the Glory of the Lord (Ezekiel 1:28)

The Likeness of the Glory of the Lord (Ezekiel 1:28)

"Ezekiel Chapter One verse Twenty Eight. Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain. So was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. and. When I saw it, I fell on my face and I heard the voice of one speaking. This. This is such. A good verse at the end of a fairly confusing chapter like you. You read through Ezekiel. Chapter One and your head might be spinning like trying to put all this imagery together. But part of the picture here is is exactly what Verse Twenty Eight is saying Ezekiel is seeing the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord and he is in awe he's over while I'm T- can't wrap his mind completely around it, and that's just the likeness of the glory of the Lord. In recent days I've been an. Exodus chapter. Thirty. Three next chapter thirty four when God reveals himself to Moses and I kings chapter nineteen when God reveals himself to Elijah but neither Moses or Elijah can see like behold the fullness of the glory of the. Lord. So they get like a partial view. So to speak much like we see here in Hezekiel at the appearance of the lightness of the glory of the Lord to all this to say like we see this all throughout scripture God's glory displayed described and all kinds of ways that all lead to all. That's exactly what happens. In. Excess Chapter Thirty Four. It's exactly what happens in I. Kings Nineteen. It's what happens here in Ezekiel Chapter one about Isaiah chapter six like whenever anyone sees like the lightness of the glory of the Lord there on their faces it's all over revelation and then so in light of all that, I just want to remind us where all scripture is headed revelation chapter twenty, two, verse four hundred scripture. All history is headed toward the day when the Bible says, we will be fully free from sin and sorrow and sickness and suffering and death, and all the. Hard things in this world. and. We will be with God. He will be with us and verse four and Revelation Twenty Two five of the most beautiful words in the Bible they will see his face. Clean I want to encourage this hope today like one day we're GonNa Behold the glory of the Lord. And so today in view of that day, like open up the Bible Ezekiel Chapter One and all kinds of places and here this one speaking. Ezekiel says when I saw, the light is to the glory of the Lord I fell on my face. I heard the voice of one speaking like pictured when you open up the Bible the God of the Universe whose glory you could not. Be Able to see in this world, he is speaking to you. Like I was at the coast recently, I'm looking out over the horizon seeing this what looks like an infinite expanse of sea and sky and I've got my Bible open and I realized the God who created this is speaking to me. He's listening to me as I'm praying he loves me cares for me and I just want to pray that over you. Oh, God a pray that every single person listening right now with no one that your glory is beyond our comprehension. That, there is no way. We can even imagine your greatness and your beauty and your splendor, and you're wonder God re pray that you would help us never ever ever to be casual with you to have a small view of you. CAN GIVE US A. Glorious view of yourself up to realize that your glory even likeness of Your glory would bring us to our faces in off. And and sends does cowdery pray that you would. Make us a people who spend time. On our faces before you. In all of you. And then to open your word. And hear US speak to us. God May, we never cease to be amazed by. Your love for us. By your voice in our lives. By. Your care for us you're listening to us you the Creator. Glorious God. Overall you are listening to us right now you're with us your spirit dwells in. God, we are in awe. and. We pray you help us to live with the sense of odd and to love your word as the one who's speaking to us and God. We pray that you would kind of form us more and more and more in the process. To. A likeness of Jesus just like second. Corinthians three says beholding Uruguay Laurie transform us our lives. From one degree of glory to another, make us more and more holy. Make us more and more loving. Make us more and more like you. We pray. In Jesus name.

Oh, my God, this is where I'm hopeless with degrees Fahrenheit or just give me. I'll help you. Okay. It's. Won't go below. Five Okay and now we're talking in the early hours and during the day it's about normally sixteen or seventeen. Okay call. So we're talking. High of low forties high of like yeah. In the morning in the morning. Okay. I think we're talking about higher actually but. Five ish seventy reach I used to be really good when I lived in Japan I've been rusty. It's been. It's been like seven years but I can get close enough. You know six yeah it's nice sunny and seventeen. Now the thing is is like I said the humidity means that you wanNA bring layers because people like see those people from the North Sea, those temperatures and they're like sandals. That You need you need to bring layers in fact a tip? Always bring layers here. Because the sun goes out your you don't WanNa get sick while you're while you're here and the weather changes. What then what about cost for people coming to Uruguay like what? What can you compare it to I? Don't know if you have comparison to what it would cost to travel there compared to a European. Destination or whether you can just give a straight numbers of hey if you got to like a decent meal, here's what run you here's what hotel will run you. You know like mid level hotel like what are we looking at? Okay. Well, flights down here depend a lot on where you're coming from it CETERA. I you can get deals in certain times of the year from Miami from about seven hundred dollars I think. then. eating out is comparatively cheap for the quality. people let let's see. Let's give you an idea at the moment. One dollar is about forty one Uruguay Guan Faso's. To. Dollar. On. So it's comparatively cheap at the moment to be eating. You could have I would say like twenty. Dollars thirty dollars. And thirty five dollars and you're going to be able to eat at a really good restaurant here wave wine. For one person. Okay. People tell me that in New York, they'd be paying five times the amount, right? Right. So you're talking like, Hey, you're going on a date night or or you just want like using I'm going to go to one of the better restaurants or one of the best restaurants I can get in and out for probably thirty five bucks. A person for most of the. Thing is is that there's not a really big difference between the high end and low end restaurants here. Compared to other countries. So in a low end restaurant, you're likely to be paying. Now it'd be tweet like, say about eight dollars. For for for me. To give you an idea glass of wine, which is an important thing right or it's also the. Metrics for sure you can get a great ball of wine here for eight to ten dollars a great bottle of wine and in a restaurant is not going to be a huge amount more. That's the key right. That's that right? That's a key because yeah. That's that's where heather and I always get arguments. But, it's so cheap if you. WanNa have it with my meal and I'm thinking they just charge you three times more four times more just hold out you know my cheap brain resum. Difference, which is really nice. The same thing with wine tastings here, an average wine tasting, which is really like generous pour a ton of time usually with the wine owners or the winemakers. What would be a VIP trip in the US Khun cost like thirty, five, bucks okay yeah for. Like a real serious and I, always say to people if you go wine tasting, do one winery day here. Marks to. Going to be there like you'll be there to three hours to they're not give new little sips. Cracker and have another now? No no no. Generous pause. Karen. Is like in my head, she.

The Hidden Gem That Is Uruguay With Karen Higgs

"Hel Lo travel nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less I'm your host, Travis Sherry, and joining me today is someone who used to sing sixties covers in the psychedelic rock bar and Costa Rica whose hometown is roughly eight thousand miles from where she now lives and who is the only urguay guidebook. Lives they're carrying Hague's from Guru, Guay Dot Com Karen, thanks for joining me and a huge. Welcome. I was so excited to hear what you're going to take out of my via. Those good with those those. Highlights there. Right I. Love that I mean I think you're probably the only person. I've ever introduced that sung sixties covers in the Psychedelic Rock Barn Costa Rica Wall the only one who's intro involved. I'm sure other guests have done it because who has right? Exactly that's kind of par for the course if you're a traveler I want to start out, could you were talking about one of my favorite countries in the world but somewhere, I've never been so little known fact or maybe not that little known if you used to follow way back in the day. Karen I said that my two favourite countries in the world were Slovenia an Erg Urguay but I had never been to either one I've now been to Slovenia but I haven't been to. Uruguay. So I am very excited to chat with you I'm I'm totally shocked what why Uruguay can I ask my? So I think just when I started traveling, I looked at a map and was like, don't like what I'm taking I was kind of like entire nation is going to be taken back. There you go. I looked at a map and I remember thinking. Like where are the hidden gems? Hidden Gems when they travel and so oh, Brazil Argentina and I remember I and I liked soccer slash football and. Howard now I'm understanding more. Colors, the light blue I like Diego Forlan, and so I just remember thinking that would be a coup country to go because everyone goes to Argentina everyone goes to Brazil. I want to go there and Slovenia same kind of thing this tiny country tucked in amongst kind what you would call like tourist powerhouses of Italy and stuff like that and. Yeah I just so for me, it was like those are the two that I just I thought they use are going to be it and have been something. We haven't made it yet. Then that is a good question well. Yet to give you a little bit of background, my wife and I wanted to come to South America for quite a while. So let's say five six years where we've really been like South America let's go. We've still never touch the continent. One of the reasons was we are not and naturally very cautious people but because we were trying to have kids and Zeke was happening and all that kind of stuff especially down in Brazil we kind of thought well, we can put it off like if we don't have to go and I know Uruguay was not Zico hotbed. But of course, if we go there, we wanted to go to Argentina Brazil. So we kinda just kept putting it off, putting it off, putting it off. And now we're recording during covert times if you're listening in the future hopefully, you're out of it by then. But yeah. Now, of course, as an American can't really go there. So. I would have if you had spoken to me five or six years ago than I would have said to you that you have to come anyway for your entire vacations to Uruguay 'cause there's so much to do and enough of people thinking that it says side from Argentina or Brazil. Okay. So I would have said that immediately and I also would have said to you that you know Zeka. Zero cases here and that Uruguay has great public health policies, and in fact, right now we are kind of like one the stock countries in Latin America regarding the virus

Coronavirus: Fact vs Fiction

The Latest on Testing

"When you were a kid. Did you ever make one of those pinhole cameras? Were you cut a little hole into a piece of cardboard and then look through it on some ways. That's kind of how we're looking at the corona virus nowadays through a tiny little window part of the reason. We haven't been able to get a bigger picture because this is a new corona virus and we're learning as we go along. We have also had inadequate testing across the nation so the inability to know the true extent of this outbreak becomes a major barrier in terms of getting the country back to work. We need clear vision and so far we haven't had that. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction. There are currently only two types of corona virus tests available in the United States. Because I'm a healthcare worker. Who still takes care of patients in the hospital? I've had both of them. I'm GonNa give you a little poke over Uruguay. Don't okay. We're all done it. Okay early on there. Were some significant delays in testing and there was also the release of a flawed test. Which really put us far behind since then there have been a lot of unauthorized on validated tests. Which have flooded the market the most common and most accurate test we have is called a PR test. A polymerase chain reaction tests. Now that's the one that detects whether or not someone is currently infected with Kovic nineteen. It involves a saliva test in some cases or more commonly a nasal swab. Cnn's Brooke Baldwin referred to it as a brain Taylor so that gets sent off to a lab where the genetic material is extracted. And because there's such a small amount of genetic material it is then amplified. That's the polymerase chain reaction. If all goes well results usually come back within a few hours but it can take a few days if you have to send it to a lab somewhere then. There are the antibody tests. Those are the ones that can determine whether or not someone has had cove in nineteen in the past and might have some immunity to it now. Those involved collecting a small blood sample either through a needle in the vein or three blood spot sample. But here's the problem. Antibody tests have not been consistently accurate. There are a lot of bad tests out there and it's still unclear how much those antibodies might protect you from the virus in the future. When you're testing for the virus the biggest problem would be having a false negative. Why because you would think that you don't have the virus and then you might go back out into the community into a nursing home into a hospital and potentially infect people with the antibody test which you really hoping to avoid is a false positive. Then someone might feel that they have the antibodies thus feel that they are protected. Go out into the community to a hospital to a nursing home and spread the virus so with the diagnostic virus test. You really have to reduce false negatives with the antibody test you really have to reduce false positives. The promise of the immunology test to find out we have. The antibodies is huge. That's Kevin Delay on senior fellow at the University of Southern California's Schwarzenegger Institute for State in Global Policy. The institute supports test sites across Los Angeles. This can influence policymakers at the local state and federal level. That can actually inform us. When it comes to social distancing if I'm immune in scientifically I've been proven to be immune then I can re enter the workforce and I could play a bigger role and make sure we're safe for a company called Roche announced that it received emergency use authorization. Eu A for an antibody test it claims is more accurate than most Roe says. It has already started shipping. Its new test to leading labs around the world. Here's Rosillo Severin Schwan. It's really special. Because it is so accurate. It's it's almost perfect. Accuracy and allows us is to really reliably test whether a person has been infected by the corner virus or opt irrespective of whether you had symptoms or not now. There's another kind of tasks they could be useful here. It's called an antigen test again. The test for the virus is the PR or diagnostic tests. The test for the antibody is called a serology test. And now the antigen tests look for a protein on the surface of the virus. You may have already had one of these if you've ever had a test for strep throat or the flu. Here's the problem. A reliable antigen test for the corona virus isn't yet available in the United States. But the hope is that will soon have something that works kind of like an ad home pregnancy test. Were a test strip. Would change color detail if you might have the virus. Frederick Nolte is a pathology professor and the head of Corona virus testing at the Medical University of South Carolina. Antigen detection has been part of the diagnostic landscape for a number of years and it has a number of appeals. It can be done relatively quickly. it's inexpensive. It can be deployed in a number of clinical settings outside of the laboratory near the patients but the chief concern with it has been the sensitivity and they low sensitivity means a high false negative and with high false negatives people feel that they don't have the virus and they go back out in the community and potentially continue the spread so how available. Rpcr antibody tests to the general public is probably the question. I get more than any other as of Monday. Johns Hopkins University's Kovic Tracking Project was reporting over seven. Million people in the United States have been tested and they mean the diagnostic or PCR tests in this case but again the initial rollout of those tests was fraught with problems and that caused major delays in the country's early response to the pandemic. Those problems are being addressed now but there are still supply chain shortages the PR requires certain transport mediums reagents and yes nasal swabs and those things have been in short supply but just last week. The mayor of Los Angeles announced free diagnostic testing for all of the county's residents because we know the ten million residents county need that it's critical for US opening up in the future. That's Mayor Eric. Garcetti on CNN and we wanted to be the first big city in America to take the advice of doctors around the country saying you have to find the silence spreaders. This is a silent killer that people without symptoms who can spread. This are critical piece of knowledge in order to open up in the future and in New York City mayor. Bill de Blasio says the city will produce its own cove in nineteen tests kits in partnership with Three D. Printing Company. We realize we had to find another source. Global Market wasn't working. There weren't sources around this country that were reliable enough so we decided we would make our own and this has had been put together very quickly. So we're really an uncharted territory. Creating these tests kids in New York City again. It's these nasal swabs that have been in such short supply in so many places around the country. Now there are also plenty of antibody tests floating around that have not been reviewed or validated by the FDA. The agency said Monday that it was tightening. Its policy to keep unproven and even fraudulent tests from entering the market. It's been a big problem in one. Study of twelve antibody tests. Four were shown to deliver false positive results more than ten percent of the time. Remember if you're testing for. Antibodies and you get a false positive people may incorrectly. Assume they now have the antibodies and are protected and then go out into public and keep spreading. You really want to get that false positive rate under two percent as low as possible. Really the future could lie in at home. Testing Antigen tests would be the easiest to mass produce for home use but again like I said we don't yet have a reliable antigen test for Kovic Nineteen White House Corona Virus Task Force member. Dr Deborah Burke said this last month on. Nbc's Meet the press we have to have a breakthrough innovation and testing. We have to be able to detect antigen than constantly tried to detect the actual live virus or the viral particles itself and to really move into Antigen testing. If an antigen test is approved and mass produced it may serve as a valuable screening tool. But it's probably not going to replace the P. C. R. Saliva or swab tests when it comes to diagnosing Kovic nineteen the Antigen test in this case would be used to screen the PR test would still be the most accurate according to the Guardian scientists working for the US military have designed a PC test. That has the potential to detect the virus as early as twenty four hours after its contracted that could help stop infected people from spreading the virus before they even show symptoms and keep in mind. A lot of people never show symptoms but can still spread the virus. It's another promising maybe and remember this. Testing does need to go hand in hand with contact. Tracing once you find out who's infected that person needs to be isolated and then everyone who has had close contact with that person needs to be traced and sometimes those people need to be quarantined as well test trace and hopefully treat

I don't really feel like forgiving them and once again I just felt that still small voice inside saying you. You really need to forgive him and I said I got.

Can we play and I said yeah absolutely and so. We started a game in the middle of the road there. That day wasn't just something. I did one time with him but it became something I would do regularly and over time. They got to know me. They got to hear my story and even had a chance. Share them about Christ. You start building a relationship with the teenagers who stole from your who broke in and stole from Your House. I did yeah inwardly.

"Steve and Jill are these brand new missionaries to Uruguay. They're five thousand miles from what had been home in New York state. The McCarthy's home in Montevideo is burglarized. The intruders stole perfume watches and some jewelry. That Joel says was more sentimental than expensive. Steve played soccer and college. Soccer is big Uruguay. Also stolen. Steve's soccer cleats this is just a little thing but it was annoying. They take like one pillowcase. After bed and stuffed it full of things I had like an unmatching set of sheets. Now that didn't have Philo case and I'll ever to our video camera on which was disappointing. Because we were using that for ministry but it was kind of interesting because we had just recorded a testimony of this man who was a drug addict and how his life got changed through Teen Challenge. It's a drug Rehab Program based on a church and and it was all in Spanish so we were like. Hey maybe watch it. You never know so. There's no investigation. But that's not the end of the story. Now we did a little investigating low and behold we found out. We weren't the only ones that had been robbed on our street. In fact we found out that the people who had been doing were neighbors they were squatters had moved into an abandoned house. Three doors down and defeat their drug habit. They would go around and rob from everybody in our community. I feel like you missed the stuff there. How did you? How did you do own? Csi investigation to figure out who these guys were. We found out some of the neighbors that had been robbed and had caught them either on camera or at their premises and realized where they were from and where they left. There's a unique thing. Here where miners rarely ever go to to prison on. There's just not room in the system really isn't set up like that here and so when they had even been caught by the police they checked out their ages and because they were minors they allow them to go home and so unfortunately sometimes parents take advantage of their kids and rather than teach them to respect the the rules or people they would teach them how to get into your house and steal knowing that they were very little consequences that go with it for a minor parents teaching teenagers. How to steal is that what happened in this case. Yes that's exactly what happened..

Cowboys may use both tags on Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper

"The final year specifies that each of the NFL's thirty two teams can use both the franchise and transition tags this particular offseason that historic guarantee. If you don't know what that is you know franchise in transition tags in general I mean we. We have all sorts of information if you really want to understand the depths of them but in general the franchise and transition tag are ways that NFL teams can protect players that are set to be free agents. If you don't WanNA player to hit free agency you don't want me hit the open market. Bam you slapped a franchise or transition tag on them and typically generally only one is available to each NFL team so you have to pick which player you want to place a franchise tag on right or transition. Whatever the movie and so the fact that all. Nfl teams would be able to utilize both of them. This offseason really served as an incredible asset for the cowboys wrote about this last year. We wrote about this in March. Nineteen how we talked about then. Hey next offseason. The cowboys could have this really awesome tidbit in the that was the title of the article. That could really help them. Because of the cowboys find themselves in a position and we we kind of forecast this year ago where they have three big players that new contract extensions that are set to be true free agents Dak Prescott Amari Cooper and Byron Jones. You knew that and so while you can shake combination however you want in all likelihood the Dallas cowboys were going to Franchise Tag Prescott because it seems incredibly unlikely that deal done before that happens. Before the franchise tag deadline and then they were going to place the transition tag on either Amari Cooper or Byron Jones. Whoever you believe more likely personally I believe it was Amari Cooper but that would prevent both of those players from hitting the open market. Which means the cowboys could protect them. That's a big deal in. It seems like in this again. My personal opinion and and other people it'd be to share these thoughts and certainly a lot of our readers and commenters and listeners but a lot of people had kind of sort of made the assumption that the cowboys have accepted that they're going to lose Byron Jones. And you know what I think. I think I speak for all of us. That are listening. Here we're all gathered around the campfire. You know what if the cowboys is Byron? Jones not ideal but at least they have Dakhil these they have. They can figure this out. Maybe they spend their first round. Pick on cornerback. Whatever not trying to get to far into those weeds but the ability to keep both deck and Amari was and is a gigantic advantage. That the cowboys have going for them. How ever if a new collective bargaining agreement is reached in so far again at the time of this recording. We have the half that the owners have to comply with if a new collective bargaining agreement is reached it will essentially rendered the ability for teams to use both tags moot and they will revert to normal circumstances where there can only place one tag on one player. Now if you have not out by now you need to know that this hypothetical world which is I would say somewhat imminent in somewhat inevitable based on the rates that the collective bargaining agreement is happening and again as we sit on Thursday night. There's so many players kind of tweeting that they don't like the new. Cba proposal and whatnot so there could be some back and forth but if this is finalized before free agency and there's still a couple of weeks and those are going to be very important weeks then. Dak Prescott has all of the leverage in the world and all of the leverage in the world and we touched on this at the end of Thursday's episode because if that's the case and you and I were representing Dak Prescott. Then guess. What our point in our proposal to Jerry Jones Stephen Jones in the cowboys organization? Hey Dude if you don't if you don't get a deal done with us if you don't give deck all the money's basically you're going to have to tag them we all know that and if you tag back guess what you cannot tag anybody else if you tag back. Guess what. Amari Cooper and Byron Jones are going to be true free agents. You're going to be competing with the market for them. That is not ideal and other cowboys went from a world where they were probably going to lose one of the two. Probably going to be Byron Jones right to now that could potentially lose both of them which which would be a complete and utter disaster. And you know you can. You can play hindsight's twenty twenty but if the cowboys had just up to their contract offer to Dak Prescott Uruguay. I mean. We're talking thirty. Three thirty four million dollars per year. Everybody freaked out about that last year. That would look like such a bargain out. That's what happens with these deals. We've talked about that Matt Ryan to use thirty million dollars annually. Everybody freaked out now. That looks super cheap. And if the cowboys had done that they would have the ability to use the franchise tag on either Amari Cooper or Byron Jones win this ultimate sort of hypothetical becomes a reality and they would theoretically only lose one. Maybe not even either. So now the cowboys win till the eleventh hour is going to cost them in a literal financial sense where they're gonNA have to pay Dak Prescott more money and it could cost them in the capacity that they are now going to lose Byron Jones. And maybe even Amari Cooper now I should say that there is a a ray of hope. I suppose because you know look you may think this and I don't mean new but I mean I mean other person the other person here my think Jerry Jones is just. You know the cowboys. They don't know what they're doing. They're messing up. But there is a possibility. Because Jerry Jones is typically a big proponent for things like this the specialty. Nfl adding another wildcard round and round and other wildcard teams. A seventeenth game that is upping the value for every NFL owner. Jerry Jones is obviously very involved when I was on. Espn San Antonio on Thursday. We head John Maclean from the Houston Chronicle legendary. Nfl reporter one of the best. Ever do it and I John. I said look you know. Is it possible? The Jerry Jones kind of knew that this was coming that he was going to lose his ability to use both tags and somewhat prepared. Here's John Maclean said on. Espn Antonio John. You mentioned the The franchise transition tag loophole. That may be filled up and unavailable to the cowboys. Now maybe I'm giving Jerry Jones and co a little bit too much of the benefit of the doubt here. But in your estimation do you think that they you know Jerry Jones at least and we don't know the way the votes win but that he would seemingly be at the very least somewhat in support of this which would negate the ability to tag to players if he did not have a plan in place to at the very least keep one or two of these. You know high price three free agents. They have Adak Amari. I'm Byron Jones before the Franchise. Tag deadline that that's a great point. Jerry Jones. One of the movers and shakers in driving this agreement and even though it could hurt him. But I think Jerry all along you can't keep everybody I expect them to Cape Prescott and probably Cooper if Byron Jones those on the market. He's got a chance to be is defensive defensive back in yesterday I think teams are going to line up to give him a record-breaking deal. I don't think they would do that. With the Mario Cooper. There's too many good receivers. It's a great year for receivers coming out the draft. It's a good year for corners. If you don't mean Horn and the top after the first round so say they let Burne Jones go say the replacing with a cheaper free agent or they go after a corner in the draft and they can even train them they might have their pick of all of them no big deal John Maclean said it was a great point no big deal deal no big deal but anyway I think that if you're looking again if you're trying to be positive trying to be optimistic. I think there are two things to note one is that this is not probably not a surprise to cut the cowboys. Brass right like they had to have known that the collective bargaining agreement could be You know a a new one could be struck and therefore the ability that they were potentially leaning on to utilize both tags would be rendered moods and so they had to potentially be prepared for that. Maybe they all prepared for that. Maybe the preparedness is the preparedness to lose both Byron Jones in Amari Cooper. Who knows the other thing is that Adam schefter head tweet about this where he said Some something to the effect of if there's a new CBA expect a flurry of roster moves. And it's possible that you know we. We've heard so much about how different players in different guys and especially quarterbacks are awaiting the new CBA strike new contracts because they want a piece of whatever. The new percentages that players are going to get and whatnot and so we'll see so it also is possible that maybe the deal lanes right after the new. Cba struck because maybe DAX team is waiting for a new CBA to all to make their move. So who knows? But that's the positive side of things if you're trying to be positive so it is what it

Milan Daping Bam this while Icy Milan. This season banned from the Euroleague. I think it's probably the fact that it's Manchester City. And also the factor the other two mentioned we kinda bound for fallen foul of the rules and spending a bit too much but this one. This is more about the seat. This is a club with a long history since eighteen hundred ninety four. This club has been at the very core of a city. That's proud a city. This allowed a city. That's always stood out from the crowd. A club foot all of Manchester. But it hasn't historically been one of the top clubs in England. You know the the sort of long been seen as the second team in Manchester. Yes the modern era.

"Welcome back to the PODCAST. Thank you so much excited. I'm you know what I am. I'm super hungry. I've never been so hungry for cast. I'm looking at these glistening crispy. Golden Brown empanadas is in the middle of the table. And I can get one you of course different once again tell you I. A couple of these have A little bit of sugar got like my grandmother used to put my like. I duNNo. She needed for us so it gives it an extra layer of sweetness and then I read a couple of a couple of people helped me through the ripple. Yeah that's the way you crimp it To show the Francis sometimes they do that depending on the field. Lean gene. You know when you go to the stores they have different ways of closing them. So you know if it's chicken and beef and cheese of whatever pressure beating one two the only one but now I'm talking about my mouth twelve. It's all right. That's what I told everyone. Adam wants to chew on the micro comment or no no. No I mean come on. Everyone does okay. You've done chew videos for us. WE WANNA one with Bradley. Only at your first video ever Dow one was my father's. There's time in front of a Combo being part of the video. Yes we'll read. What was that like? I was really nervous during seem nervous. No I know but I thought it was going to lose my voice Because when I get emotionally I lose my voice and you know the difference and I was just trying to talk and let's talk about that so brad is I'm GonNa say six foot four Gabby is what are you short of one. Actually my past five to what are you. What are you barefoot? Five five okay right. But I'm shrinking but thinking that we all are but brad does that thing where you kind of like spreads his his legs out and he kind of gets a low on the counter because you know can be the same kind of way was he. Did the video. Was it easier than you thought it would be in terms of doing doing it or it was fun I was. I was hard to follow him. You never know what to expect to him but it was fun and I feel like I I was able to talk about. The empanadas and people are super excited in Argentina that I actually was representing so I think it went. Well did you get it. Comments from people in Argentina. Oh yeah yeah from. I add From South America in general or over specially from Argentina. Some of them were like oh well in my town. We don't make them like these. Because inside Argentina. We have different types of bananas. We have like the ones from the north. They wants from the south of the center. That's where I'm from one side is so these are called for ten years because if you're born in one side is your potential from from the port of so you know we are very opinionated people you know I would Argentina's in general we are like. Yeah no I do it this way. Do it that way. Some people is because if you need like racing's or not and some people say oh these gusty and it has all leaves but for me Dania. Has You're going for the second one people aboard. He's having the second one. I make them kind of a small. So let's start with the ones on the plate now. which is the first video of you and Brad from his? It's alive series. This is a ground beef. EMPANADA beef typical tenure. You have raisins in Maher racing's or leaves on our lips the ground beef of obviously grabbers on yawns and then in you'll have oregon o q mean salt pepper. A tiny bit of sugar a little bit of public for Koehler. That's what makes that juicing using US and then I put a hint of Cayenne pepper for heat because I hear people tend to like hear a little more. We're not really into hot spicy spicy. I think it's nice to have a little bit a little sugar just a balanced. Yeah okay so in that first video the what I noticed right away was you made me feel okay about not making my own dough. Oh no totally I mean empanadas reveille eaten in. Let's say typical family probably might WANNA say once a week maybe every other week. But he's something that you get together with friends and you order out. We have great places that sell. NPR's and they deliver. There are some places that they do. Only empanadas can niqab any flavor in the world. You can imagine and in other places a habit Sonnen Pinellas so you either order or you make your own so people people are like no within their friends for their feeling but you will not find anybody that is going to make Bacon Bananas making their own doll. Because he's such a long process. It's not even worth twenty minutes later. Everybody item so we have really good a star Bought doll that it comes already pre pack and we use that. I mean if someone tells you that making their own doll deadline I think this take this impression. Like in Italy for instance there's a ton of Italians in Argentina that everyone makes own pasta scratch every night and this is not the case. No no no no we have also with with really good. Pass the places that you go buy. Fresh passed away the Kilo- All Dogs we do a my rather is makes the best pizza pizza. People make at home on Saturday nights. Yeah the guys make beats a home. Friday nice nice very common. You all do some house. And they make the you know don't beat Sally Gracie B. of the best pizza all right. So I WANNA make empanadas at home. What sort of dough should I buy? Whichever using if I'm not making my own these is when he's gone he's gone on? It's like you can buy it in any supermarket. Basically actually when when I publish which member be on February of two thousand seventeen one of the things that Rick Martinez was sculpting with was to fact checked. You know like find out if you can really really find these doll everywhere and it is. It's really easy available. You can even know that it on Amazon. What doty's does it? It's called Empanada or it says in English turnovers doll right. No I see them watching my Guy Jones happy so be any Spanish local local market if you live in a neighborhood that some sort of Latino community I'm sure they're having go yeah though They have different ones. They have some for Frayne gene and they have Colombian door that is completely different. Because he's make with Like sort of like cornmeal completely different because those refrain gene so these one is actually at says For BANARAS for waking I need it comes from Uruguay. Actually it comes. They'll comes from European Goya packages here in New Jersey near my house. All right so but if you don't have these you've done us any puff pastry and caroline can circles rounds. And that's it. Because he's very similar to puff pastry so for this one. For the filling you were browning. The ground beef seasoning thing it and then you took out the ground beef from the pot and then you put the onus on the papers. That's one way of doing it. I think when we publish the recipe we the first on and a and then we moved them out. You can either either either way for me. It's faster to do the one part and the meeting. Another the reason why I do it that way because I used to make three hundred hundred panels every weekend when I was selling them. Okay we're GONNA get to that first. Let's get to the ground beef. Onions and red peppers seasoning seasoning cumin sake and releases all these juice and makes it sweat. That's the flavor you're going for. You cut out rounds with a pastry cutter or news. Come already already come on. We got anything and they come with these little plastic in between doing so. They don't get stuck one way or the other see. That's what I noticed. I noticed when you took the felling but first of all you want a cool the feeling feeling you can even freeze the feeling. My mother used to freeze the feeling abortions. And then it's much better because when you're baking it Y- releases all that water all the Jews even better. Yeah so you were using like a little like ice cream scoops because I like to measure you know. I don't want one every Empanada have the same amount. I'm also so far of not putting your leaps keeps anti-lien so I wanted on a line like in a restaurant. Is that continuing more. We're GONNA get me angry letters but no no no yes GSA anyways you. You've got your feeling with the raisins onions this nap but the olive separate the Reagan half. Yeah and then I make sure everything Pinella has. That's the League Asian. Sorry people I'm saying to myself. I make sure that everybody gets two halves of only because the worst by will be like if if he does someone Oh inputting olives a panel and then they bite on it and he's gone so when you're feeling is done you can actually don see anymore. Where Olives went you know so I was carefully? Put two halves of olive anytime panella before I closed them. So you fold them over with this little. Okay Yeah just to fill me in then you you pinch them shot. And then the big question between you and Brad on the video of it's alive. Was You crimp them with the four or you do the fancy thing that you do right well. Criminal with the fork makes them look bigger. So here's the C- could people when I was selling them. I was using the fork. Not only because it was fluster and get somebody to tell me that was my mother on. They look bigger so you can judge they all right. People don't don't lie. When he stood cream they feel like they're eating a lot of doll? I love it personally. What's the word again ripple Julia Gay how responding back I E? BU ALGAE E rebelled. Would you so you so it's like you're it's almost like a looks like a little rope. You're sort of twisting at unto itself so you had a nice nice braided exterior exterior. It's super pretty. I know and I can do really quick and the story goes these about anyone I was aid. I don't remember much but we're GonNa have a fourth God. I know they're tiny tiny people he's not even know overeating When I was eight my grandmother who could never actually cramp really pretty really? She used to do the fork because it was faster. You know you're making three four thousand in Pinellas. She asked me to help her because I was always in the kitchen with her and pardon me I started. You know I started twisted Empanada crimping like that during the report and she almost cry because I was doing it exact same way her mother that she could never learn it well and I met my grandmother when I was one and then she dies or she couldn't have possibly taught me on so I guess it wasn't my jeans

What Are the Health Benefits of Yerba Mate?

"Talking about Uraba Matei today. What is it? What are the health benefits attributed to it? And how can you best enjoy. Matei is traditional South American beverage. That's brewed from the leaves and stems of the Yerba Matte tape plant. And that's a tree that belongs to the Holly Ali. Family motto is widely consumed in Argentina Uruguay Paraguay and Brazil where the Matia tree is indigenous. But you'll also find Matei as an ingredient gradient in energy drinks or even in the herbal tea section of your local health food store fun fact technically. The Word T. only applies to the leaves leaves of the Camilla Sinensis or tea plant so the category of beverages popularly known as herbal tea are actually tisanes anyway. Human human beings apparently have a universal appetite for stimulants depending on where on the globe. Your ancestors found themselves. They might have enjoyed beverages made from coffee. Cacao Beans Goran Berries Cola nuts or T- or Mateo leaves although each contains a slightly different array of active chemicals. All all of these plants contain caffeine or a closely related molecule with similar stimulant properties. There are many impressive health benefits attributed to drinking matei including greater energy mental focus reduced fatigue weight loss antioxidant activity and enhanced sport performance formation's but before you get too excited about this new miracle brew. Most of those benefits that are attributed to Matei are available from any caffeinated needed beverage. There's no question. That caffeine stimulates the central nervous system. And that results in alertness and reduced fatigue now the impact of Mateo on weight. Wait and fat loss is likely to be relatively minor especially compared to the impact of your food and movement choices and similarly expect only incremental effects on your athletic performance. It might help you go a little longer or a little faster but Matia is not going to turn a weekend jogger into an Olympic runner or anything. So let's talk about how caffeine affect the body. Caffeine is not addictive in the true sense of the word but it is habit forming. If you drink caffeine in regularly your body will become habituated to its effects. You might feel like you can't wake up in the morning until you've had your first cup and if deprived of your regular caffeine fix you may develop a temporary headache. So if you're trying to quit caffeine I recommend weaning yourself gradually to minimize any of those unpleasant side effects on the plus side regular consumers also habitue to caffeine's diuretic effects contrary to Popular Lore. Drinking caffeinated needed beverages. Like coffee and tea or Matei is not dehydrating if you drink them. Regularly long-term Caffeine use also appears to have neuro protective effects fact reducing the risk of dementia Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease now just like different fruits and vegetables have different nutrient profiles coffee fi t mateo and the other stimulant beverages each contain unique phytochemicals that may offer distinct benefits but the similarities here are greater later than the differences. You can stick to your favorite caffeine vehicle or play the field or of course you may choose to abstain altogether many many of the antioxidant and other disease fighting compounds that are found in coffee tea and Matei can also be gotten from non stimulating fruits and vegetables in particular apples bowls.

'I came, I saw, I conquered': Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaves LA Galaxy

"Kings Latin. This was how he exited. I came I saw icon coach. Thank you L.. A. Galaxy for making me feel alive alive again to the galaxy. Fancy wanted Latin. I gave us lantern. You're welcome the story continues. Now go back to watching baseball. All these Latin Taylor sign off like that how we tell it to judges two years and mls well. I definitely thought it was improperly placed within that Bank of California stadium in that picture that blog hosted I found it interesting Adrian Stevie and Chaka that when you says Z.. Conquered major league soccer. I hit it is scored fifty goals in two years. Simply did your job. You won only one playoff game and everywheres lot win win. Talk Time and time again about being a winner in doing that. I just look at lunchtime on the field very few. If anyone thought he he would score twenty plus back bat seasons let alone fifty two and yet they really struggled doe while I look at it and say I think the galaxy are going to be better off in the sense that they're going to have player up front. That's going to be a little bit. More mobile is going to defend. The truth of the matter is a pressure still on the galaxy. Let's see to fill that void. How're you GONNA fill the void of fifty goals for me Adrian to answer? Your question is up there with David Beckham if not higher than David Beckham on bringing awareness to the league and what I mean by that is this person personality transcended sport. It got on mytalk shows that nobody major league soccer talkers. History had ever got there and I'll argue with anyone. He did more for the sport. David Beckham and a short term. And I know a lot of people internally. MLS has offices even the galaxy would almost re with that statement because he transcended not only sports but into pop culture. You you tell me how many MLS athlete. And I'm less players or coaches have done that in the past. It's zero if not one already. Lots of talk about who the galaxy you may turn to to fill Arava Lodge void. Well how Edison Cavani. He's been linked with a move to the galaxy when you look at his stats over the Gosh ten years. He's still only thirty. Two the Uruguay only six appearances in two goals this season of course but he has school school double digit goals. For as long as you can remember both in legal and and in Syria any reason to think he wouldn't do exactly what was attended Mall Mall. No listen either. It doesn't have the personality off the field. Lots on hard but Rano fifty two. He has the ability. Lati- GIMME number. How many goals would he school giving givens Latin goat? Whatever wherever you did? twenty-seven guys going fairly goals Collinsville set a record thirty four could he could he come in and challenge records steady. Two years of age is still a striker wall of football. That you talk about these strike Wolf football it could play in most teams. So He's getting felt he goes to seize and no danger. I'm I'm not absolutely suit in that. He gets as high as a TV does no question that Cavani is an incredible talent but I think more reliance servers than's Latin. I don't think he it kind of creates on your show Ebrahim do and as a result and looking at the galaxy and you wonder where that services is gonNA come from. I'm going to go twenty Tayla give me a number on Cavani while more important I think Cavani was scoring twenty goal but he asked from Miami. Yes for thirty million nets to come to Miami. So I'm not totally sure that's going to happen and I keep an eye on Luis Suarez. I think Suarez could be employed with the galaxy. I think they're gonNA make a run at them. They're gonNA throw out feelers but Suarez's keep in mind did did the deal for Nicholas Liberal to end up in Seattle. So I think Suarez does come to major league. Soccer is GonNa WanNa play with Nicholas Ladera. So how does that dynamic work. And I've got to bring up the name again. Teacher Reto This is the kind of move if you've got Carlos Villa at l.. AFC and you want to make a splash. A A bigger splash. I keep teacher Rita. They'd have to trade Chicago fire for the rights are not getting into that either here nor there but I keep an eye on those names I think the galaxy are going to try to make a splash with a little bit younger player than they did was locked on.

Nurturing Talents

"So it was interesting engineering business since we worked for insurance we really crossed all industry verticals I mean I've worked cases in Nolan gas or cases in math in healthcare where cases and financial services really across the board what you find is the process same regardless of the industry and there's only a few different nuances as you as you get into it so I I like to say industry agnostic but there's definitely some places I've got more depth of knowledge and others for sure cool and what's your focus today are you consulting or training them yeah I'm working with a really good friend of mine here in San Antonio she's got a it's a major consulting and technology shop so were you know were basically helping people get more efficient leaning on technology obviously to these as the talent pool is shrinking and so figuring out how we can leverage technology not necessarily people and then also the management consoles the changing of the business processes result of that so and what got you into sales oh man playing golf really yeah yeah I was a I played college high school and College Golf and NFL professionally for a couple of years after I graduate school and was working part time at a club down in south Texas and got to know a member pretty well and he said he found out about a business marketing degree and he said I want to hire you into my engineering company and then I want you to learn what we do and then I want you to go sell it I said I'm Professional Golfer man forget all that business stuff and he just kept Africa back about six months later I finally caved and you know it's been a whirlwind ever since and what do you like about it you know I mean I love the business world because I ended up getting into the NBA at night when I was working full-time And so everything I look at now look at like a case study and so it's just I I look at everything objectively from Santa what in years broken what could be improved on what can we do to make people's lives better and then I just actively worked every day to try to make that happen and so it's fun for me because you know businesses really today it's all about the people and I think what I've found in my life is that there are too many people that just exists and they don't actually ever strive to achieve anything really special and I think what what it is incumbent upon us as leaders is who identify what's really cool and special about a person and build an environment where we can nurture and develop that talent to come out of it you know my favorite story is I I hired a guy at a curved it was a fire Marshall and that's all I can make you a Rockstar in Latin America and he didn't see for himself at the time but it took me about three and a half years and he's actually now my old CEO's when I sold I made him CEO by Mexican Company and so take a guy that was making thirty five thousand dollars years are Marshall impervious to now you know being the CEO of major international operation on a Mexico making a buck five that changes his world forever and so I believe that you know as a from a leadership perspective if we can have that sort of impact on people's lives they were be were blessed to be a blessing well we'll take us through that journey how did you get him from even probably not believing that he could do it too normally believing he could do it to doing it so I think first and foremost our I always relate to the idea of developing employees to just like raisin kids right so I've got the he was two at the time when we sold a now he's six I gotta level in like crazy they they have no that they can trust you they have to know that you have their best interest I parts and they have to see what you do every day in your actions that are designed to promote them and take them door they also wanna go and so you know my job was really just the cheerleader early on guys guys we got this incredible opportunity in Latin America it's untapped it's taking we gotta go is going to do it if you're willing to go with men I will I will make it happen for us and so it was never made saying hey you go get it done it was me saying hey guys let's go and I would fly down there with them we go meet with prospects early on absolutely we didn't have that much work yet we beat the drum we tell everybody you know here's what we're doing here's our here's our doing it and we started to pick you know we started generate some interest a lot of teaching and training early on because technologist on them that they need in Latin America but they don't have and frankly you know timing always works in mysterious ways now say got as planned for everything so I was down in Monterrey Mexico in the stories are right about my notebook is as meeting with this Rico which basically is a staff attorney for the large insurance company down there and he I was explaining to him back then it was in broken Spanish because I didn't speak Spanish very well back then he's doing what we do and he succeeded forensic Tana said yes sir said hold on a minute he comes back out with his file he shows me these pictures of this deadly and he says here's the story so we had this guy that divorced twice married a secretary bought a two and a half million dollar license insurance policy on her ten days later she slips falls and dies in the bathroom were the insurance company and of course we're suspicious with the medical examiner's report says the cause of death is undetermined so now we're on the hook for the two and a half million dollars can you help and I said you know I said it's really funny answered that's normally not exactly what we do said but I just happen to hire a guy that's a Puerto Rican orange near out of two million university in Louisiana and he speaks from Puerto Rico and I think we can probably work you know help you out on this thing so we fly down to Monterey we measure the bathroom we build reading model we start analyzing all the marks body and put them in you know where where he basically beater in the bathroom and so fast forward we testify and Mexican court that he killed his wife the judge rules in our favor which means insurance companies don't have to pay the policy the governor of New Wave Leone which is a state around Monterey reopened the criminals association and the Guy In jail so this all the newspapers in Mexico and we became almost celebrities overnight in the interesting because the insurance companies never win those kind of cases down there and so when I went to Mexico City a few months later they're like oh you're that guy and so we started this started this whirlwind for us and you know I was down there in Juneau five and October Hurricane Wilma hits Cancun and so the property Vice President calls me and says him what you know about segregating hurricane damage from pre existing damage because as everybody knows in the insurance business you know you'd let your property you don't do preventive maintenance on him you let him you know Kinda K into form and then when a bigger incomes you wanNA completely remodeled upon insurance money and that's not exactly how politics listen work and so he said well what do you know about separating out these types of they haven't Jessica what he said we'll come on down to Cancun so then we spent eight months in Cancun and so that started just our whirlwind journey back you know five of you know a bunch of were all over Latin America all through Minnesota. RT Colombia Chile I mean we did we did earthquake in Chile in twenty eleven on we did a bunch of other one off projects refineries in Uruguay and so it was just so much fun for me with the guys that are hired it really put them in the best position for them to be successful like the guy from curb ill- because he his family is actually from just outside a month today so he was perfectly bilingual and it really put him in a position we could maximize his talents and skills always say that for everybody just like in sales wherever your passion skills in profitability meat that's an ideal situation where you can draw circle around it and so that's what I try to do with people every they is what's really cool and unique about you and happen we build an environment and put you in a position to get you ultimately where we think you could be of most effects and what do you look for in people the people that you work for and work with well the nice thing about you know now being retired you know the pressures off so you can be very choosy I'll look for you know there's a there's a popular performance management out there that says the vast majority of people give eighty five percent oh they're hypotheticals I like people that are wanting to do something more than they are doing today that are willing to stretch and they're willing to be adventurous rightly said I had those guys went down a Latin America that was protein to build a company down there the unknown I mean you hear all the stories about kidnappings and how dangerous is down there and here I am six foot That speak Spanish you know going into a lot of these places so everybody always asks well we're scared it's like well no it was more for me it was an adventure I mean I had a bunch of life insurance on me and I had a five million dollars in policies. I really didn't have to worry about anything but it was like go down there and get it done you know I look for people that are adventurous in their soul in wanted wanted US something that they haven't already got you know when you're selling to clients what's your approach well you know it's funny I've taken probably he sticks or seventy oh sales training curriculums of course years the Challenger sale and spin sale ending and you know Barry Ryan selling to curiosity and you know Miller hyman method and all that good have to develop enough credibility where they're like okay you obviously know enough about our world that I can tell you what's really going on here so once you get to the truth of the matter you find that there's opportunity to this every day probably ninety four out of five that that beat something I can do for and so it just a total rethinking of how the how the sales engagement really should work but that's just the way that I believe well I I think it's good if you have that right and

"uruguay" Discussed on The World Nomads Podcast

"Yes, yes, we'll find out and we'll also touch on the trip that included Uruguay, but we can't stop with any quiz question. Okay. Pretty simple name a famous Uruguayan Uruguayan sorry, it It just. just decide how we say, okay, name of is Uruguay. Trix Bill is a later in moldy, stopping to national travel. We spike into Sarah from a tricks before about we have a back on the podcast to tell us why Uruguay a size special. Well, for one thing, it's sort of difficult to get there for most international destinations. You've gotta go through Santiago, Wayne Asya race or through Brazil and for to get to most of the country. The best way to get around is actually not by plane. It's fight bus or by boat, and there's some really remote and beautiful places in your by that I think are on everybody's bucket list or should be all right. We'll share a fuel the Hussein. Well, I mean, I have to that. I wrote down that I think are they're actually not that hidden gem anymore. They're two of the most popular places to visit. One is Kabul Polonia which is pretty remote. So that's one of the most remote, a beautiful natural places you can go to in Uruguay and colonial days, Sacramento, which is actually one of the most accessible places a quick ferry ride from what is areas you can also get their lunch today. Oh, and they're just so many really great. Natural places to visit NC in Uruguay. That's one of the reasons that I would wanna go there, see all the different coastal regions and also in the interior. There's a lot of really beautiful different natural landscapes obviously. So being remote, that natural beauties being preserved? Yes, definitely. So, but what is it like I made is it is it like Patagonia is Arad is lush, what sort of what sort of natural landscape is it? Well, I think you've got a few different types of natural landscape there. I think the further you go into the interior, do you know they actually have a wine region there with a particular type of grape? That's only grown there. I can't remember the name of it at the moment, but you have a lot of different climate zones. I think when when a lot of people think about your, why they think about, well, there's a lot of beautiful beaches because I think that's those are the images that we see. But I think there's kind of a diverse ecological variety throughout the country, especially the closer you get to Brazil Paraguay. You get more into the rainforest you type seems to be to reach concert. We do increasingly, we finding surf hyphens and Uruguay is a surf hyphen as well. Yes, I actually did not know that, but I believe it has tons of a lot of miles of coastline. I think a lot of people that go there do it as many break from Argentina, so there in waiter Syros they all I'm just gonna go for a few days, but if I were gonna go, I will probably try and go for three weeks, maybe five weeks because I think that there are so many different things to do there. They definitely have gauchos. I learned recently that the carnival there is one of the longest Harbaugh's in the world forty days. Of dots up parties. I mean, I guess that's the duration of lunch. I think that would be a fun thing to to go and see. Their definitely do some wine tasting do a lot of hiking. Some of the remote coastal areas are things that I would definitely like to visit. What about culturally to the coupled streets that you say in and read about? Absolutely. I always look for books written that are set in the places that I'm going to our written by authors who are from the country that I'm visiting because they think that understanding a little bit about history of our place..

"The next guy's ready that was the narrative about him coming into this world cup solutely look and look what he's on the verge of doing you're so right that's a great call and for myself i went with boy we've been talking a lot about uruguay today and i'm gonna continue that oscar to barris uruguay's manager they failed to qualify for three of the previous four world cups and then he came in in two thousand six after they did not qualify for that since then not only do they qualify routinely but look what they do in these world cup semifinalists get out of the group in two thousand fourteen group that included england and italy not going through uruguay did and now he's got them in the quarterfinals and this is a guy who when he's talked about or when great managers are talked about his name is never you never hear his name he went to uruguay in two thousand six in a really tumultuous time any completely tore it down whatever the model was that they were using he changed it from the under fifteen level instituted a four three three which seems funny now because it doesn't really feel like the way that uruguay play but he changed everything about the the setup the youth set up in that country kind of a lot of things we're talking about that need to happen in the us he did it and they've been reaping the benefits ever since and if he's able to beat france who's considered to be probably the second favourite right now behind brazil if he can do that especially if cavani doesn't play i think he'll start to get a lot more of the credit that maybe alludes him from some of the mainstream press grant wall had an in that voice tweet about uruguay he said he basically said why don't we discuss how lame it is that they have forced hours on their jersey then they've won the world cup twice and they also have the the two other stars are to do with the olympics which was twenty four and twenty eight which was preworld cup before the workshop existed zillow advice for for one thing this is a country of three point five million people there's more people where i come from an ireland and they constantly punch above their wit it's their incredible and that's why they've grown on me like a rash a hated them at the start i thought can't i can't watch this even against egypt had talked to were dull they've grown on me yet and then last but not least the obvious one your predictions for this weekend it's not really the weekend the friday games do you wanna go first you go first yeah sure i'll go quickly i did i said all this about uruguay i did go with france i don't think he's gonna play from everything that i've read it doesn't seem like it's trending in that direction maybe your aguire trying to send that message on purpose as a smokescreen but it doesn't seem like he's gonna play that matters he's had a great tournament he's probably been their best player so i am going to go france i'm going to go brazil i will go croatia over russia i think the russian world cup run ends and i do believe that the chance of it coming home will continue i believe that england will go through over sweden's well you're versus france in nizhny novgorod i'm gohmert uruguay brazil versus belgium in kazan i'm going with belgium in versus sweden and samarra i'm gonna wind i'm russia versus croatia in sochi ongoing croatia are well brazil out france out you're setting this up for you're trying to just bill your doing it with england fans again it's come and go you're trying to build them up build them up just inaugur stan in there you go that's our our eight questions for this by the way we forgot to talk the other day about we read a barbecue over last weekend together with a lot of one hundred people knitting but you were victim of one of the most embarrassing things that can happen to a person i was hanging by a super bowl winning player right chris canty of formerly of the.

"About the story mentioned while we're at fork fast the uruguay story about their legalization of cannabis as the first nation to do such a thing we had discussed canada in some detail since the to go right since they're on the cusp of that so i've got that story but darryl you've got some breaking news out of the supreme court and it sounds like a big deal it is and this story actually comes from the aco you where last night we talked about a bad ruling out of the supreme court i wasn't here for odd supreme court ruled that states can force businesses to collect sales tax even if they have no physical presence oh no no meaning that amazon would be would be forced by states in which they don't have any kind of nexus to collect sales tax this is some kind of legal term i i heard from chris wade who's normally here on fridays pork festival right the case originated out of south dakota where we talked about the case somewhat when the oral arguments happened where state of south dakota wound up passing thing claiming we're losing a bunch of revenue because of online retailers so anybody that has two hundred deliveries into south dakota or a certain dollar amount is then required to collect sales tax and this says yeah any state can wind up doing that which opens the door to forcing online businesses not just amazon but much smaller online businesses to possibly comply with somewhere upwards of about forty thousand different tax laws right because they would have to comply with all the municipality tax laws as well or county tax and we talked about some of this last night to where in some states closer taxed and other places they're not in place all food is taxed at other places it's only things that are prepared food or candy some places you get a tax holiday wants to once a year for like a week or a weekend that only applies to certain things it's not everything right so yeah it's going to be a big giant cluster but finally some good news likes pass some sort of law to override that let's see what happens major cases if you will that the supreme court has not yet ruled on that has to happen by the end of june so expect some relief partisan gerrymandering whether that will be continue to be allowed or if the supreme court will say that that's not allowed but the case here again aclu says that this is a groundbreaking privacy victory the supreme court on friday handed down what is arguably the most consequential privacy decision of the digital age ruling that police do need a warrant before they can seize someone sensitive location information stored by cellphone companies really case specifically concerns the privacy of cell phone location data but the ruling has brought implications for government access to all manner of information collected about people and stored by the purveyors of popular technology in its decision the court rejected the government's expansive argument that people lose their privacy merely by by using technology and this is a case that i know the rolls over defense team had been looking at very closely because of the broad implications here and some of the techniques shall we say that may or may not have been used by the fbi in finding the server for the silk road so maybe this will wind up in courage in the supreme court to go ahead and take the over case could not yet rejected the case okay but the court can only and i'm not an attorney but my understanding is supreme courts and appeals courts can only rule on errors of law made during the initial trial so i don't know if they would be able to take under advisement the new ruling that they made an apply retroactively cited certainly they all right you made a mistake you didn't realize that the time it was a mistake but we've since determined it was a mistake you couldn't do that so therefore rejected all right continuing on here and again that's just one possibility and that's some wishful thinking thrown in there but i do remember this case being mentioned in one of the.
