"Top to get Lukaku into the club to bring him back to the club. It went to Maria granovskaia, Marina grannis guy, and then it was filtered down, and that was the way thing how's it going to work this time? Clearly not like that. So it all, there's so much to be revealed about how new Chelsea are going to look operate and Mike Edwards, the fact that he's even been mentioned with them would suggest that there's going to be a sea change in things. If they're attacked next season is, let's just say, pulisic, havertz, ZS, Werner, Werner, off the bench, or is have it's going to be kind of a false 9 or I mean, they're all good players. But is it going to be enough to keep pace with the teams that they want to be keeping pace with? I don't know. We'll see there's still time. Let's see, what's yours? My right card, Arsenal fans, very online fans, I should say, their reaction to just one of the best, most interesting people in football Tim vickery, and his comments on the potential signing of Gabriel Jesus. Just listen to what he says. I think it's, I think it's very good. And then we'll I'll give you some of the reaction. I had a chat with him with about him with Brazil's coach. Who said after the World Cup, he called Gabbard edges was over and he said, where do you want to play? And Gabby was, he said, I don't mind. And the coach said clearly you do mind. Clearly, you have a preference. Tell me where it is you want to play. And he said a little bit sheepishly, I would rather go wide. And since then, Brazil haven't really used him as a center forward. They've used him more off the bench actually as a wide striker. In fact, last earlier this month he scored his first goal for Brazilian 20 games. It's a long, long, dry time. And there's been a sense that he's been running away from that center forward position. And perhaps running away with the comparisons with aguero as well. So what are arsenal buying? This needs to be very, very clear if they want to go ahead with this deal. What are they buying? Where does he want to play? Where is it going to fit into their system of play? I thought that was a perfectly reasonable thing to say. I thought it was an intelligent point with insight from an interview that was done. And the replies. There are replies the abuse Tim vicary got from this. I'll just give you a flavor. J hitch. Oh, I'm sure Arteta hasn't thought about any of this. Thank God for you, dim Tim. Arsenal no need to reconsider. Whatever would they do without your input? What a. I'm not going to say. Joe black, these sees from sky or slagging another player only because he is an arsenal target. Absolute clown still wait for cave apology to tore me ten times better or be blah blah blah. What in the world is he talking about? But all this stuff like I thought an absolutely legitimate point it was and it's revealing that Gabriel Jesus said to cheat sheet that, you know, actually kind of want to play out wide. And if that is the case, our title needs to know that. I need because he's got to figure out and factor in who his central striker will be. Is he going to play with the central striker? Is it going to be more fluid? But this idea, like supporters, every time a journalist says something, especially someone with a bit of insight and background about your team, that's just a question. It's absolutely clear. That arsenal can not be 5, four months into Gabriel Jesus being there and him not fitting correctly. They need to know this. Now, whether edu, because of his Brazilian background, his connections with the country and Gabriel Jesus have some kind of they'll have a connection and they'll be able to clearly state and what he wants to do or because Arteta was involved with Manchester City when Jesus was there. Whatever it is, arsenal can't just throw the money at this and then not get a player who wants to be that leading player centrally as a striker. I don't understand why it's so so just it's all reaction. It doesn't need to be vitriolic, but then again, I mean, you're seeking it. Like you went looking for those, right? No, I saw Tim replying to these people. Abusing them. I was like, why? I thought, you know what, my reaction was. What Tim said? Nothing. He actually made a really good point that arsenal need to be very clear with this guy. Because what if he says to Arteta? Actually, I'd like to play a wider. Those kind of positions might be, well, we've already got guys for that. We need a central forward. Can you be that guy? I'd say he reluctantly says yeah and it doesn't work out. Arsenal don't have an Arteta doesn't have the wiggle room to make mistakes like that in the transfer market. And it's just a question. He was just pausing a question. No, and it's actually decent, it's good reporting. It's brilliant report. To say, to say that this is what the Brazilian manager has found out from Gabriel Jesus after having to pry it out of him. Somewhere. Because a lot of people will look at Jesus as being a natural striker. And maybe that's not what Jesus himself wants to be. If he wants to be playing out wide. So I found it somewhat interesting. The fact that for the team. But that's Twitter though. I'm almost numb to it. It was the volume of response on the you see somewhere in the past, I don't know, 5 years, decade. Anybody who is just comes on with researched insight, who you could legitimately call an expert. And Tim vickery is a South American football export. That is a fact. We've had them on and he's just brilliant. Somewhere along the line, Andrew, we decided these people don't know anything. And we're going to tell them via social media. We all know more. Yes. Yeah. Well, I found it interesting. I think it's a great point and something to chew on. All right, well let's continue now, JJ. Caught off sides, man of the match. First man of the match of the evening, Matt Turner. I'm gonna give mine to him. Why? Well, he played his final match. Well, he didn't play. He New England. He was on the bench, but it was his final match as a member of the New England revolution over the weekend. The club where he's been since 2016, the club where he won goalkeeper of the year, club where he was a huge part of a historic supporter shield. And just kind of I kind of just want to bid him farewell. His rise there was incredible because he rose not just in the ranks of MLS keepers, but as great American keepers rising to a point where, I mean, you and I both have him as our number one for the U.S. right now. Doug McIntyre was on the podcast with us last week. He said, that would be his number one. The only guy who matters is Greg berhalter, and I don't think it's his number one, but it might be. We'll find out. It feels like a toss up right now between Turner and Stefan. And it's just a story that you never thought was going to play out that way. He was never really a guy on that kind of radar, and he purely out of his own performances, forced the hand of Greg berhalter to consider him..

"Here's the other thing, structurally Andrew. Like that came from the top to get Lukaku into the club to bring him back to the club.

"At USTA. So we all know each other well. So I remember I was coaching players and we came to Petrie said if I was like Sasha vickery, Sasha fickle, she's the one. She's the one, the one in the country. She is a one. Let me go find this girl. And then I said, and I was like, expecting somebody to be like 6, one. You saw my little song. I was like, this little thing. It's like up against a fence just retrieving and pushing. I was like, guess what that? You're like, yeah, thank Tom. Yeah, I used to get that all the time. But I'm small. I've always been little, so I had to, you know, work with whatever I had and yeah, I was definitely back there. Moon balling, hidden high. Whatever it took to win, that's what I was doing. I was the one at that. I remember. So, and I remember a pastry city, you know, first day of the tournament, a lot of cars in the parking lot. You can't park in the parking lot. You're parking on the low side. Right, right. And then you get to the end. It's like 9 cars in the park. I'm like, is that little thing? She's still in a tournament. Right, yeah, those were the days I used to, I used to get to the tournament. I was like, okay, I guess I'm gonna play Vicki in the final. Like I used to go through the draw and I'm like, I'll be in the final playing Vicky. 'cause we played every final every week, so yeah. So talk about that, 'cause I feel like that was the time where it was like everyone was trying to get chose by the USTA. Right. Like that was like the big thing. You wanted to win a super Nas. Yeah, you want to be like get all the USDA support and get invited to the camps. Talk about how it was like a little bit of internal competition to get chosen at the time. Now, I think it's that much. Like, no one's trying to get chosen. Exactly. Yeah, I want to be IMG as somebody else, but man, it was like USTA was like. When they put their finger on you, then you were gonna make it. Yeah, I'm not sure why that was, but that, you know, period of time, you know, with me, Vicky, Danielle Collins, Madison and all of that. There was just like an intense like, you know, wanting to show your talent wanting to show USTA. And I think they were just maybe more involved in the tennis side of things. But yeah, it's changed over the years. Now people kind of do their own thing. They don't really, you know, just dive in straight to USTA. They're like, let me just do my own thing, and then if it happens, it happens, but I'm not sure why around that time, you know, being part of the USTA was such a big deal. You know, looking back, it wasn't that big a deal, but it's one of those things. You know. So how'd you get into the Sims? 'cause, you know, Paula wasn't a tennis player and you're from the Caribbean. And you think of some of those small islands down there. Right. You know, there's a few you got like DK, darion. You get a few guys from down there, but it's not like you would think with the climate. It was big, but it's not. So how did you get into it? Yeah, I started totally by accident, like you said, you know, Darien, I've known him forever, you know, my mom comes from a small island, you know, in a village almost in South America in the Caribbean and, you know, she immigrated to United States, you know, we didn't have money to, you know, throw me into tennis lessons to throw me into sports, but I started by accident when I was younger. I went to the dollar store. I saw a racket. I started hitting on the wall with it. And after a while, they were like, wow, you know, you're pretty good. Why don't you try to take lessons? So, you know, my mom scraped up whatever she could. She put me in lessons and then I got good quickly and I just stuck to it. So, did you look at like federations, right? You look at the check, you look at the LTA, it even the Canadian federation, right? You can see how waves of players make it. Right. And you being from the Caribbean. Right. It doesn't really have like a federation that has that same type of pipeline. You know what I mean? But you see other people, even who grew up in America, go and play for another country. Right. Yeah. Do you think that it would have been easier if there was like an organized sort of federation with a larger pot of money to support? Yeah, I think for sure, you know, the big thing with the Caribbean is, you know, they just don't have the funds. These small countries, they can't send players to tournaments. They can't, you know, pay for hotels and stringing and food and flights, and all that extra stuff. I think if they had more funds and more opportunity than there would be more players coming out from the Caribbean and even kind of going back to American tennis, if there were more resources, you know, in the inner cities and, you know, some of these small communities, I'm sure there'll be a lot of players that can make it, but people don't have the resources. So you always been like a trendsetter. Even back then, you were like the it girl, right? You were like the first player I saw, they had a tattoo on her shoulder. Right. But she wanted to show her strap. Yeah. And then I start seeing like pierces. I was like, that girl Sasha would be doing her own thing. That's true. So now you're into fashion. Yes. So tell me about, you know, how you got into it and what you into. Yeah, so I always done my own thing. I'm original, I don't try to follow anybody. I just be myself. I stay positive and be myself. But now, fashion is something I've been into since I was a teenager, but it was more of a hobby. I never really explored it. So as I got older, you know, and for me, in particular, I struggle finding clothes that fit my body type, you know, everybody has a different body type. I'm small. I'm curvy, you know, a lot of the girls, they're tall, skinnier, and you know, just the way it is, and I was like, why don't I try to, you know, make clothes or make something for people that don't have the status quo, you know, typical body type, like me, 'cause I find it hard to get close. So I started my line. It's really in the beginning stages right now, but this is the first week that I wore one of my own designs. I sketched on court. Of course, encourage my sketched it during COVID, got somebody to bring it to life. So throughout the year, I'm gonna wear it more and more. Yeah. And then you gotta pink Tesla. I do. Now let me tell you. I do. Before I saw it, I heard. I was like, man, this girl crazy. She went by a Tesla and got a rap and Matt pink. I was like, that sounds like Sasha. You got to be brave, right? And you can't be creeping in that because you are everybody knows. Everybody. Yeah, he's like, I would say, you can't miss me on the streets of Miami, like people, you know, some of my friends, they see me on the highway. They know it's me. I'm the only one with a pink Tesla. But that just goes back to being original. I like things like that. You know, and I'm also born and raised in Miami and we just have that like car culture in us. I'm from North Miami. And the Nicki Minaj. Little Nicki Minaj. Flashy ribs all the Miami vibes. That's just what I'm about. That's what I'm about. So let's talk about the vibes, right? Because you are a player that is played in all this lambs. Yes. One rounds in all this land. Yeah. Also play one 25, 25, 60. Yeah. What's your favorite stop on the tour? And what's the stock that you like, if I never go there, I'm okay. Okay, so my favorite tournament, it probably be Indian Wells just because there's like a really different energy there. It's very relaxed and the site is beautiful. Obviously everybody says that's like one of their favorite tournaments. But the going back to the trenches where, you know, you go back to the 25, 60s, where's the little rough? There's a 60 K in Macon, Georgia. At Mercer university, I will never play at that site again. I already promised myself. I'll go to another site in Macon, but I won't play at Mercer university. Any tournament they had there. Now why is that? It just is something that as a player, you know, you go to one of those tournaments and it's just like everything goes wrong. That's been the case with me in that tournament for the past four years. So I think you get to a point where you're like, maybe I need to take my game elsewhere. 'cause this isn't, this isn't the week for me. So that's it for sure, yeah. I won't be going back to making Georgia. Yeah. Yeah. So, every now and then we see Paula pop up. Yes. Right? And Paul is like my favorite person. First of all, I'm like having a hard day. Crashing my drink with. Okay. Paul, want to have a drink? Yeah. I'm down. She's.

"That's my theory. No. And for me, looking at it like this sport, as a woman, try and playing sports. To make money, there's not many. You can, you can do it. To me, it's golf and tennis. If you want to have a good career. And I don't know. I feel like it would be nice if there were more options for women that you could see it as a career, not just a side quest. This is not a side quest. But some people like it like the sports that girls play in college, but they don't have a really go pro with it. And I'm like, I would like it to be to be able to be a career. I don't think that when you think about all the careers within this sport, whether it's being a determined director, whether it's being a comms person, whether it's being an umpire, even though electron Lion calling is like taking their jobs. But all the other professions within in and around tennis. Being an agent. Like being a female agent, right? I think. There's a lot of job opportunities, and it's a really cool sport. I think to be involved in. Yeah. Yeah. So what did your mom do, right? So I talked about my frustrating experience with my own kid. Even my son like hate it, right? He slaps the dog on the ass with the tennis racket. Refuses to hit them all. Like, he'll hit you with the racket, but he refuses to put the ball on strings. Sure. So what did your mom do that perhaps like myself Macy? You know, like there are kids like went the other way with it. She had me play a lot of sports. It was not just on us. So I think not like putting me into this, it has to be this. It has to be this. Yes, she wanted it to be done as. But I played soccer. I played volleyball. I was in the band. I did ballet. Yeah, let's not talk about my brief stint in the band. But yeah, I did a lot of different stuff. So I feel like letting it kind of be my choice was like, yeah, there were a lot of activities, a lot of sports staying active was great, but letting it be my choice was probably the most important thing. Um. So yeah, I feel like if I gave my kids a choice, they just play video games and watch TV all day. So it's kind of like, yeah, you have some choices, except this one. No, yeah. So I hear you, but we had, I feel bad now I'm looking back and I'm like, how did they manage to get us to all these activities? Like, yes, it was the minivan life, but how did they manage that? That was impressive. But I feel very lucky that I had that many choices. Yeah. So you say to me being alive, let me give you a minivan story. 2018 was a good year. Okay. And that's when I had my third kid. And we were looking at suburban and escalades. Okay. And it was like a particular match that didn't go the way it was going. Okay. So I was like, all right. Win this match. It would be an escalate. Okay. We lose this match. It would be Honda Odyssey. Okay. We lost the match. So then I was still out of town. So my buddy bought the car for me, drove it to my house, dropped it off in the driveway, and my wife was like, what the fuck is this? Oh, no. I was like, when I get back home, you can ask the team. What this is. And why is this instead of that? So when I was like, that's the best car I've ever owned. Sliding doors, TV, they can pour stuff all over the floor. And it's okay. It's okay. That is my minivan story. So my Honda Odyssey should have been an escalate. Okay, but we're happy that it was. We're happy they don't have a better one. Okay. Yeah. So I love the mini van life. I went to a lot of different sporting activities. So I got last question. So let's just pretend that the 1000s incorporated mix. Doubles into, you know, more of the draw. And you're like a great doubles player and had a lot of double success. Who would be your dream mixed partner? I take it, you don't know what happened to me. The last time I played my soul. Oh my God. So Japanese story. So I played mix at Wimbledon with Dustin. And wait, that's wild and crazy experience. I mean, you signed up for that. Okay. Well, I felt like I should probably play on the backhand side because like my backhand, my mother shot, and he goes, no, I'm gonna play the ad said, I'm the weapon, which that's fine. You're a guy. That's fine, but I said, listen, like, I'm gonna do said, I'm probably not gonna get a guy served back whatever. Do whatever you want. Fine. And then my other thing is like, I just had a little bit of fear because his aim, it can be, it's a little all over, it's a little over the shop. So we're applying us a second set and the guy hits a serve like a meter out and dust and takes a full crack at the forehand. I was half back. It was the guy's first serve. It caught me in the ear. It broke the cartilage in my ear. So that was the last time I played mixed doubles. So like if you're like, who are you gonna play next doubles with and I'm like, absolutely no one, please. I think that was probably yeah. That was I actually did not go down like a sack of potatoes. I thought I thought I would. That did not feel good. He took a full crack at it. Someone made a collage of the cycle, like me getting hit, the trainer coming out. I'll show you the collage. It's terrible. So if they bring more mixed in, Madison will let me commentate. Please don't put me out. They're like, I will do any I would ball girl. I would umpire, but like, don't make me play mixed ever again. Done. No. Well, thank you for coming on. This has been a tennis background podcast with Madison Pringle. Thank you for having me. And now let's talk about one of the most famous juniors in U.S. history. If you think about that class, when Madison keys, Sasha vickery, Vicki Duval. Sasha was one of the ones that was picked to make it to furthest. We got a great chat with Sasha about in junior career. So the how she separated herself or simply separated herself from that impressive class of juniors and Maddie and Sasha and Vicky and what she's been up to on her other entrance. Welcome to the tennis dot com podcast. I'm your host Kamal Murray, and we are here with the player I have been watching since she was 11. I remember watching an pastry city, George, and whoop up on one of my players at the time. She's a 95 baby. Yes. But you know, like, you know, back in the day, that same voice, 94, baby, 95, every 96 baby, she was the hot and 1995 of their class. Sasha vickery. Yes, hello. Thank you for having me. So when I say peachtree city, does that bring back memories? Oh, definitely. Yeah, like all the nationals and the super nationals. Just growing up on that USTA tournament schedule, all the girls I grew up with playing was all from those nationals. So talk about some of the girls in your class. I remember like Vicky, Derek. Yeah, Victoria Duvall, jerrika Boone, Jenny Brady, who came out a little bit later. Who else, man, there was like Kelsey laurente, over and a bunch of players, Madison, she's my year. So we all grew up playing together, same tournaments, same training camps.

"And we just saw intent. We've got Hogarth room. Winning its first title. And I'm not really surprised if it came on this surface, right? You think about him and his game, nothing big, nothing impressive. Just kind of a machine and it's really appropriate for him to win his first how to enclave where your feet, your toughness, your mind, and your stamina and your work ethic can really win you a title. Congratulations to the young boy. Let's talk about big phone. And Baez is in the final instrument. To me, you look at that time for big foe. Key match was his message in step quarter. You think about two Americans trying to battle it out for who's the next one to watch, choose the next one to take the American crown. And it was a big win for big phone. Who was down, really? And sent a message to everybody that he's still here and as it relates to Americans. He still has the edge on. Set the corner. And let's talk about Madrid. Exciting tournament. The first one we have Rafa and Novak. In the same event. We see suite attack, pull out, which is a little surprising because she's played four times in a row. She's kept the momentum going.

"She's a big city Doctor Who thought she had her whole life mapped out. There's a fellowship in Boston. He said I'm sure. Do you think it's false? 2014. Crown media CEO Bill Abbott and executive vice president of programming Michelle vickery are watching a trailer for a Christmas movie set to debut in the upcoming season. It's one of 12 their premiering this countdown to Christmas. Members of the marketing team joined them. It's for a film called Christmas under wraps, which stars Candace Cameron beret who starred on the sitcom full House as a child. She plays an ambitious Doctor Who loses out on a prestigious fellowship, then takes a job in Garland, Alaska. At first, she skeptical of her new off the beaten path home, but by the end of the movie, she realizes the small town has everything she needs. It's the best Christmas I've ever had. Victory takes notes, but her mind is elsewhere. She's been distracted from the first second of the trailer when the production company's logo came up. Hallmark doesn't have its own in-house production team. They partner with several production companies to make their movies. But vickery wonders if they should be taking a cue from their own movie. Maybe it's time they look at where they are. The twist of the film is that Garland is home to Santa's workshop. And the man bures character falls in love with is Santa's son. Santa doesn't outsource his work. Maybe hallmark.

"In our new 5 part series, we dive into the competition between hallmark lifetime and Netflix as they battle it out to be America's primary destination for Christmas movies. While the films may be full of goodwill and cheer, the rivalry is as cold and dark as a lump of coal. This is episode one. A very merry rivalry. In September 2010 in Los Angeles. Bill Abbott, the CEO of crown media, which owns the hallmark channel and Michelle vicary the head of hallmark programming, sit in a screening room at the company's headquarters. Outside it's a record breaking 113°, but on the screen, the actors Don parkas and drink hot chocolate at a Christmas parade. You don't really want me to blog about a crazy old man who thinks he's a bad vickery or watching footage from a movie currently shooting in Canada. And they are not happy. It's scheduled to premiere in just a few months as part of their second ever countdown to Christmas block of programming. And it's not what they envisioned. Vickery shakes her head in frustration. Her long, white blond hair, sashaying across her back. Vickery is in her late 40s. She got her start in music working with bands like Nirvana and hull. But television was always her passion. What is this? I see like two Christmas lights behind them. It should be time square back there. Christmas lights everywhere. Abbott rubs his hand over his balding head, sharing vickery's frustration. 48 years old, Abbott's been with crown media since before the hallmark channel even existed..

Visiting mom hospital is our yesterday And going to go back and just a little bit. You had to bail on your podcasting conference that you thought. I was at podcasts movement so we bought tickets in twenty nineteen for the twenty twenty show And that conference was obviously yanked because of kobe. They made it virtual. I think our tickets automatically rolled over for summer. Twenty twenty one based on everything going on. We possibly wouldn't have gone. You didn't go. i didn't i have kids. Yeah and family in town in town right so that had to eat the cost of my ticket you went. I went Stayed with our good friend. Heather vickery from the brave files podcasts. and Thank you for letting me bunk in your room. Then your mom thought. She break her hip so yes called. that short can turn that trip into a majority. Yes so drove from nashville. Tennessee to suffolk virginia. To longtime anyone wants to google that map acton half hours jesus uh-huh and then you were at the cottage with your kids Drove back up to northern virginia. Dropped him off. Came back down thunders. Like a rainstorm. Yeah six hours driving in like almost whiteout rain which is nuts. Because i have done that drive in three hours. Yeah let's do it in three hour. Sure but not when everyone's doing it. Yeah and in the rain. The rain was nuts. You could barely see in front of you so so. I have family in town so on thursday of this last week. We all met at kings dominion's for my brother mark and his wife heidi and therefore kids and me and my seven kids and you know i just. I just can't do roller coasters. I keep thinking. I can handle a guy i used to love. Look roller coasters. So smashie my eight year old. She wanted to start with the low end. Roller coasters just to be sure she can handle larger ones. And so she and i kind of broke off from the crowd and did We went to snoopy snoopy bill. Snoopy planet snoopy. Like where the kids shit is okay. And we rode on woodstock express a little bitty rollercoaster And i got nauseous. So i felt sick for like an hour Yeah so basically hung with smash didn't go on any other rides until the very very end. There's this roller coaster that if it were just like ten seconds shorter would kick ass. But it's that last ten seconds. Just did me in so the reason i love this coaster is when you start you haul ass like up the big incline and then you haul ass down like super far down superfast that the decline whatever you call it the the down thing dissension whatever it is. You know the down part and it's super fast. And i love it but then it's got like about ten seconds of not any loops but like jerking you around fun and i had had mexican food for lunch and so like literally the last ten seconds of the right. I'm like breathing in deeply trying to focus on getting my shockers aligned shock progress. I believe that shit. I don't think you study it though. I don't lie so finally get stopped. And i'm like oh my gosh and i hate throwing up so i didn't throw up. I kept it in. But i was literally nauseous for the next hour while we were trying to gather up and get out of there and then the next hour and a half to two hours of my drive like. I'm driving and feeling carsick. Because i'm still sick from the ride so what i'm saying basically is i spent forty dollars for me to go in ride to rides get sick and need expensive burritos. I hate amusement parks at this point. They're super expensive. Like seven kids to you know. I'm not not made money while just Lunch itself was like one hundred fifty bucks. Who for for me to just feel nauseous and wander around a hot park with smashie. Because she didn't really want to go on anything we just wanted to go. See all the rights Which you know. I had some good time with smashed but i could have done that for way cheaper and it's just not great timing because our landlords told us recently we you mentioned this part of mention it again that we had to move out by the end of august. So yeah we gotta do that. Plus the deposit on the new place is like a thousand dollars. More than i rent and that's already a hike. Yeah because we're northern. Virginia people you. It's it's it's pay to bid money. I mean our deposit is basically five thousand dollars. Yeah it's crazy. Yeah so that's gonna be fun to try to come up with that should we. Is this a good time to talk about patriotic support. Shall we lease financially support online. Now we have a couple people to pay. We have dan And we now have judah yes you just helping us with organizing organizing sally mail and all that sort of thing Justice going to be helping us with that finger to the square tampa book yet. And we've got to get back into that so yeah could really use your financial support. No no pressure. Plus the time that we spend podcasting. It doesn't make any money. I could be donating plasma in making money. You probably could make more money donating plasma than we make on.

"The next step then is to add a couple plug ins and in this case the plug ensure looking for our first of all an extractor or a singer tip for like you mentioned firebase vickery. Maybe you've got some data and all of these have well maintains connectors. Death are not all supported out of the books by meltdown. No but through the meltdown. A hub for singer steps that we have set up. It's really easy to these and find installation instructions so then you run a couple of commands and then you end up with this definition for debt firebase in your mouth analyst demo file and you can configure it using the methodical and fix eli and then the next step is to pick a loader which is a connector for a destination so just depends on. Where are you going to want to have all of this data end up. If you already have vickery set up with some data that is coming from your game or from your. You know your customer transaction handling infrastructure. Then vickery is a natural choice for your data destination as well so then you would install the target bakery loader similarly configure. it's using fix cli or by directly modifying methodology emel and then you can immediately use donald e lt commands to take tap and the target and run them together. So that's any data that the tap manages to extract will be directly fed into the loader in order to be loaded into bakery. You would do this three times if you have three different sources but you can use the same loader configuration each time. And then you end up with three different pipelines. You can run these locally despite running the cli command. But if you want to automate running these pipelines you can additionally at airflow into your mouth honor projects so you would run montano. At orchestrator airflow meltdown. Would add the airflow pip. Becca ch- into montana own definition and methodical gmo. You would get the opportunity to configure airflow although to default. Configuration should be enough to get you started because meltdown also automatically bills a deck generator. An incredible generator that luke's at montana's scheduled pipelines and creates a scheduled deck for each of them. So then the last step to get this running locally is to actually start airforce scheduler. Zig montano invoke airflow scheduler and then you have pipelines running on the schedule you can figure it with d. credential shukan figures automatically pulling data out of firebase and bakery and loading them into firebase or loading them into bakery or whatever decision. You had chosen at this point to have all of this running locally in a directory that you can easily initialized give prepo insight bush it up to get up get lab or what have you and then the next episode to be. How do i deployed this. In order to deploy a meltdown or project. With all of the plug ins it contains which in this case are extractor into loader and airflow you can really easily containerize your montano projects by editing. The ducker files to your project. You can actually run montana at files ducker and it will immediately add a montana specific docker file a duck nor file and everything else you would want to build a docker image for your projects dead then exposes to meltdown os cli standpoint. So that you can hosted docker container somewhere. Tell it to run with. The donna. Invoke airforce scheduler commands. And then you will have this environments running at will automatically run those pipelines. You can figures on a schedule so you can do this locally with your local ducker of course or you can do this in production if you want to build image push it somewhere but if you want to use continuous integration and deployment on get laps or getup actions or something else to do this. You can really easily at the appropriate laps configuration file to your mouth the project as well by running meltdown at files get gaps which will add up. Cmo file will automatically built deduct her image using booker file that had been inserted at the previous step and then has kind of a deployment. Step where you can build an image push through docker hub or to get own registry and from there you can point your communities infrastructure or whatever duck runner you've got at docker image and like i mentioned before to initialized it with that milano invoke for scheduler command so if you're a developer all of this sounds pretty straightforward you've got to see gotta get repo. You've gotta duck image that builds and you just have to initialized needle image with the appropriate commands and then you're hold eight. Integration set up is going to be running wonderful and the actual time it takes to do this. What would your estimation be like. We're talking a week two weeks. Of course that's a little bit based on whether the connectors in question already exists for the source that you want to integrate. An or whether it's well-maintained enough that you can just use it without hitting any any hurdles because in some cases these connectors have been built by one particular data team and it works in their scenario with an if you're using it with a different version of the source or something or if has changed over time you might run into by era that you might have to fix yourself. But that's just the nature of open source and you'll see the same with with. Api client libraries. So that might take a little bit extra work if you wanna fix the buck. But if you're a software engineer that should be relatively straightforward otherwise all of those comments. I'm talking about if you know ahead of time what you're planning to do. And you know how. Donna works and how it expects you to set up a project you can get to that final running in production step within an hour no problem. I recorded a speed run video. A couple of weeks ago off going from zero to running a data integration pipeline pools data out of get lab and most into a post grass database and the entire video. Take ninety seconds because of course. That's me knowing. Exactly what the type. But if it takes you weeks to set up a project like this and then we have failed in our mission because we have aim to make it. Extremely easy to together these data pipelines and to deploy them. And if you are comfortable already with the point containers onto bonetti's or similar platforms. Then everything on the development side of things on your local machine should be done within thirty minutes and then getting its running somewhere. Externally and production should take another thirty had.

And most podcasts or shoestring operations, you've got to be really, really careful. You're not accusing someone of being a murderer, for example, and it's definitely a challenge. But The amateur detective armchair detective thing. It's very real. We get tips on our case. Certainly every week and I probably get a significant tip. Important enough to turn over to the FBI. At least once a month. As a matter of fact, I have two major tips now. In the Colonial Parkway murders that I need to find the time to write up and send into our FBI investigators. So it definitely happens. And I agree with the listeners point that True crime podcast have and will solve cold cases. Charlie writes on Facebook.

Asking me if I wanted To participate in a book about Ted Bundy. And I Was polite, but I said I'll think about it. But my attitude is, I would rather see a book about Kathy Kleiner, who's a survivor of Ted Bundy's attacks. She was a University of Florida when he killed several of her sorority sisters and attacked Kathy Although she survived, I'm much more interesting. Kathy Kleiner's story than I am. Had Bundy's story and let me give an example when I was a crime Khan, which is a conference of true crime fans. One of the things that made me incredibly uncomfortable was seeing people walking around with T shirts with serial killers faces on them, and I think people have decided somehow this is cool and hip and edgy. And I think it's just gross I the glorification of serial murder is something I will never understand. Well, I think I'm gonna wrap on this comment from one of you.

Let's go we're gonna call this one the best six and ten team of all time award but the washington football team stepped up so now he renamed it already way to change the word on the fly in the moment with breaking news the best seven and nine team of all time award the washington football team now can we say that definitively it may be too early to say last year tampa atlanta both went seventy nine. Those teams didn't even make the playoffs so the early lean is that washington could be the great one of all time. But we don't know yet. Speaking of that game. The clockwork orange award goes to the new york giants because they had to watch i at one point. This season banned myself from nfc east games. I said i wouldn't watch any until the teams are over five hundred. I watch step drop sixty two instead of being super locked into washington philadelphia. And i don't feel like i miss much. I know there's a lot of controversy would get that. Maybe a little bit later but imagine having your eyeballs taped open like clockwork orange and being a member of the giants having to watch that game. Nate sub-field now. Look we can sit here and be upset about it but you could have gone seven nine and got into the playoffs. So how sorry. Can you really feel for the giants the skeletons on the zahara award. Yes some of these awards. We referenced. his some won't get boy when you do get a weird one. You're gonna go man. I get that all right. That award goes to the. Las vegas raiders. Because at the beginning it looked promising. Nice little boat trip trade. Some spices await were crashing into rocks. Not a big deal here. Some locals gathering on the beach here to help nope now. We're marching to our own death in africa so it was very pro gruden. Hey maybe this gruden guy knows what he's doing and then you're like wait. Does this actually suck again. The drought continues. The raiders have not won a playoff game. Since two thousand to the notre dame award that goes to the green bay packers great record high green. Bay's really good. They're thirteen three though the one seat but nobody outside of their own fan base is rooting for this team. Not only because of the history of hatred. Although i imagine there's way more anti notre dame stuff out there than it is anti green bay but no one trusts you. Yes you're thirteen and three but that's three. Nfc conference championship game losses in the six seasons. A couple down years. They've turned this thing around. They are the one seed. But everybody's kind of overt already before. It's even started the parent's weekend award that goes to the new orleans saints. You guys know the deal parents weekend. There's a dad he wants to stay out with you guys. And he's older he's a little beat up and you're like i don't know like we're going to go out. We can't say no. We respect him too much. It doesn't look great. Doesn't make a ton of sense on paper there's some bad stats in there. But you have to let them do it. You have to let them try and the thing is is you and your buddies like there's no way does this is going to end well. The iceman award that goes to the dallas cowboys man and dangerous. What is with this jolt. A don't let us get hot. This is insanity when this was part of the story lines throughout the cowboys broadcast. Yes you on three in a row. Cincinnati san francisco and philadelphia yay. Then you lost the giants at home. You came in eleventh in the nfc but if you were to get in look out. This is now. It's our time you were eleventh in your own conference dangerous. You had sixteen games to prove that you're only dangerous to your fan.

You've been ranked as high as number seventy three currently around one fifty eight winner of three i-if titles, and you know you've been sounding off a lot on twitter. You've been on active on instagram. We have a lot of stuff we want to cover with you, but first of all. Where in the world are you? And how has the shutdown Ben for you? I'm actually at home in Boca. Raton Florida right now. and it's been really nice gone to spend time with my family but I'm kind of at the point where I'm ready to get back out there. Playing at you know practicing normal again. I love being home, which is such a great change, but I've just been trying to train as much as I can. just hit with some girls that are in the area, and that's pretty much it. Do. You have a coach right now that you're kind of working with is one of those things that you're slowly getting back into practice mode, or have you already been practicing a lot? Yeah I have I have a coach I work with. He's He's French and he's come down to work with me all the time. and yeah, just slowly getting back into it I played a couple of exhibitions in Atlanta last month I got to kind of. Play in a feel for where I was and be on court again. Play matches so been doing that. Was it wild without any fans and stuff like that. What's restrictions the same as kind of what we're expecting from upcoming tournaments? Yeah. I think probably exactly the same. It was really weird, and it just felt like I was literally playing a practice match. which is what which is what it was was it was? Very Weird. There was a there was one empire, but he was sitting Super Far Away. We couldn't really come that close futuristic on opposite sides. Side did kind of get a feel like what will be in the tournament coming up in. It was definitely a little strange. So one of the things that I've noticed with a few players and is their motivation. Level can kind of go like this enduring the quarantine. It's just been up and down. You know like we've been told two months two months from now two months from now. Yeah, what's your motivation been like for the last couple of months? Yeah well general motivation it is a little bit up and down with the tactic of the tour just in general, but for the past few months. Yeah I! Think the hardest part. was just you know knowing how much I should train like how much I should do if I should? Maybe less because I'll. Then I'll be more fresh when I start playing again or do more than I'll be. You know in super good shape, so it's just finding the balance between that. With no exact Kinda, start date and no calendar it's. Up in the air, so I'm just doing the best I can just like. Everybody is I'm sure? There's been somebody announcements about the tourist coming back in August and the US. Open has gotten some flak because there's not going to be a qualifying event at least as of now in June. Everything is changing by the day, but the initial initial plan is no qualifying. What was your reaction because it's kind of? A grossly unfair. Yeah no I'll just. I'll just speak really freely. I'll say I think it was the total slap in the face to so many players who depend on playing slam and you know that really depend on that. You know the competition and the prize money and you know everybody's been going through this rough time, but I just feel like. Prioritizing. The top players, which of course they deserve to be there. They deserve to play these tournaments but I just feel it was just really a hard low for the players that worked so hard to be in qualities, and they really depend on that time of the year for a lot in their career so I personally think it's it's a little bit unfair, and I think now. I read something where they're allowed to bring. Two or three people with them, so that potentially could have been an entire qualities drought. You would have just cut back by one person each flare so. I'm not obviously I. Don't really agree with it and I. Think definitely a little bit more could have been done for. The lower ranked players. I've also been hearing A few people talk about how qualifiers are still like. If you would have been in qualities, you're actually going to get a check yet. So what? What is what's the amount? Do you know the amount of that check? So I think like the first round qualifying. It's normally maybe ten thousand, five hundred somewhere around that range. But I've also read stuff wear. Maybe if we don't play, they may Give us some of the prize. Money I'm not really sure how it's to be I've been reading the W. T. updates that they email us every week. so I think that's the amount but I'm not really sure about the specific so what they're planning to do. From a personal level I'm curious. How excited are you to go back on tour? Not knowing that you know there's going to be not only changes Day In and day out, but just having the US Open like actually no qualifiers in the French Open I think there will be qualifiers yet. We still don't know really ITF Calendar. How are you excited to go back or part of us? Just like what the heck is happening. I think yeah, it's a little bit mix of both I. I am excited to get back playing, but you know like I said earlier just we have no direction really I don't know. There's no it calendars I. Don't know if I can start with the lower level tournaments and then play French Open they'll be a warm up or I. Don't know what's going to happen, but I think. I think the WPA T. A.. They have been doing a good job. You know trying their best to manage everything, but I think one thing that they've kind of lacked was update in the players. With things going like there I feel like they've been very favorable to the higher end players and they get information a lot quicker than we do like. I had to read somewhere on somebody's tweet. That wasn't going to be equality's before. We've got emails So you know a lot of people they start planning for that? You know they people need time to plan and prepare to arrange coaches. Book things so I think that's one part where definitely? They should try and do a little bit better.
"vickery" Discussed on Nourish Your Health at every age
"Was the most amazing contrast and things. So it's Kinda like that with him. Is that with my kind of music in my creative background and performance. And Gosh we didn't even do street performance in actual yoga and I mean there's so much stuff that I'm that we're all part of this farm groups and stuff and the Improv and and so he's really So we get together once a week and do this thing. That's like the ultimate tilling of the soil in loosening the structures right by talking out life and asking the question. What is the good life? And how do I live it? We just work out our our problems and and decide together through critical thinking and creative thinking and get these resolves and it's just like loosening up all of those identities so well then we go play music. I bet it's beautiful and I played piano and I play some African drums and did we do a little bit guitar right now. Play any instrument ear by ear. We just play. And what does he play every instrument every instrument? It doesn't matter. Wow and so we can. We can but we're so there's moments and we've got really good do this once a week for like Two years now when you decide to enter the moment inter into you can feel it. You Know Right. You know when you've entered into it and it's like this person has my best interest in mind and I have his best interest in mind and when you have that I mean it is really fantastic. What happens and it's so hydrating so again so this other thing is that all these practices are so good. They're so great but life is all about people. I really believe that. So you can go. Sit in a cave and meditate. You know for forty years but you can go play music with somebody for an hour and I think progress quicker and faster. Something didn't that free in that I wouldn't even call it freedom. I think that's a terrible word for it. I think it's a liberation also. That's what I'm interested in. These days right is entering into the moment with people Tom. Yeah that's the that's the good life right and same thing with the kids in that practice. bleeds out into all these other. People really sincerely being interested in people you know. And that's the idea being interested in them that can be themselves to you now like you rather people liberation. That's right it's okay. It's okay to be exactly how you are and that's what we've practiced so I mean that's really that's the practice just really being okay with people and how they are. Yeah and it feels like I've been blessed in that way to have somebody who is just okay with me how I am. Yeah and you know we have all these things. I still have all these not good enough for worthiness issues. They always rise up. We are who we are right but but you can get really good at at being okay with who you are right especially if you have a there. Yeah someone who's really honors Todd and that's the same thing with performance and in the music. It's the same thing I'm just GonNa play because I want you to. Just I'm just going to bear witness to what you have to say. So we play music. We speak to each other and believe me. We're like we're not the master musicians and over. I mean that's not what it's about you can take one note. You're not trying to write an album. You just feel for ewing you know and and then getting the benefits from it. So it's not about becoming that master its benefits and when you get a taste of that right. They say you don't know each to strawberry taste like until you taste it until you take a bite. Yeah can't I can't describe that to you right. You can't Descri- and tell me what it tastes like all kinds of it's a great analogy for that kind of stuff until you until you take that risk because it's kind of scary to enter into it it. Kinda demands that you let go of. Ino kind of who you think you are and all you kind of stuff that you you bags that you take along with you. It'll be waiting for you when you come back. It will still be there right and so again. That's why I do. Yoga and meditate made into the Wim. Hof Method do breathing exercises in the morning and cold shower therapies. And you do it every morning. Half right after I meditate. I do that. How do you spell that W. I. M. W. O. H. O. W. I. M. H. O. F? You I've heard of that. And that's his name this guy. He's a hoot. I love that call. Yeah he's just a hoot in himself right now. I want to mention a couple of things. I wish we could just go on. We'll probably have to do another show in the near future so much. I want to mention that for people that would like to hear cosmos voice in Meditation. There is a free APP and it is hope. Mindfulness and prayer. And I think if you look your apps either on Google are I tuned Tunji wherever you get your apps. It's it looks like a hope symbol. It says hope. But it's hope. Mindfulness in prayer and I think the first twelve. Maybe I twelve or freaking get free and then if you want to continue you can sign up and I didn't get all the details but I think it's really worth people listening because it's a combination of learning how to be more mindful about your body and your posture and breathing. And then there's a a scriptural message and then you and your beautiful boys you expound. Upon like in the first one I listened to about being still you talked about. Time is the only thing that we can ever get back. So it's you know don't squander it you're squandering God in the moment and I just sat there going. Gosh darn it. I know this but to be reminded is just a beautiful thing to hear at in your hair. Okay so while I like sitting still. It's also kind coal to have guided meditation when you need to get back on track you know so. I want people to listen to that. And you please share your phone number again okay. It's a three three seven two nine six two zero seven one. Yeah now there's much more than yoga and massage therapy. I know you also teach people how to let loose and have fun and and expand their consciousness. I guess there's entering into it. Yeah right so I've even done parties with people where I take people in group exercises and we do these fun really for yes. So it's so fun. Is someone come over to somebody's house and just yeah? I've done it for a lot of friends in different parties or birthdays right and lead them through kind of interactive performance. Very simple like we were talking about like babbling teach other or doing some side-by-side storytelling right or all kinds of different things. Depending on the party to we can we can push the edge. Oh right but it's basically like playing and again making all of these opportunities to enter into the moment at the same time being so okay with you. Don't have to do anything even have to leave your comfort zone right. I would never make anybody do that but all you do. Is You just facilitate? You just facilitate opportunities to enter into that moment. That sounds like fun as so from that. Side COSMO's Fikri. I'm just honored to be getting to know you. I know I feel like that was just meant to be For my husband to get into Yoga. I'm telling you because he just preconceived notions he didn't know you know and just was blown away literally just loves it N. NAIL. We're going to have to get back into his shoulders healing. And he's not on the man but close you know and. I think that's going to help him. Kind OF GET BACK..
