How Virginia Became Ground Zero in the American Culture War
"Virginia, which is now being called a blue state, how long is it going to be blue? Or is it going to stay that way? Again, the counties around Washington, D.C. are reliably blue for a variety of different reasons. The first reason of course is its proximity to the power center to the kingdom of Washington, D.C.. The second is the amount of universities that are in Northern Virginia, which is extraordinary. If you look at the amount of universities in D.C. and Virginia, the third of which is, of course, the fact that a lot of first generation low wage worker immigrants move to Northern Virginia to be able to make the life of luxury possible for so many people that live in Northern Virginia. And many, many of the refugee resettlement programs and the immigration, the mass immigration programs come to Northern Virginia, which has resulted in a totally different political type atmosphere to win an election in Virginia. And so Virginia Democrats have been able to win, reliably by running up the score Northern Virginia, being able to win in Richmond and win on the Virginia coast. The rest of Virginia is very conservative, by the way. Lynchburg is very conservative, Blacksburg isn't because of Virginia tech, but Virginia, Virginia used to be a very conservative state. Charlottesville is obviously not very conservative because the University of Virginia, Blacksburg is Virginia tech, Charlottesville is University of Virginia Lynchburg's Liberty University which is actually a pretty conservative area. Richmond is a very, very Democrat area, and so Virginia seemed dead on arrival for years. There have been great candidates before, running for governor as Republicans, and they always get disappointed. And right, of course, the current governor of Virginia's give and a Ralph northam of Virginia and he won against a pretty good candidate who was the Republican canon in 2017. I can't remember Virginia's goofy. Virginia has elections in off years for their statewide elected officials. So 2017, 2021, 2013, they do every four years and in coming up in a couple weeks, is the Virginia governor's race. And Democrat operatives all across the country, they are going a full court press they are trying to California recall the Virginia race. They're going all in. They're raising money they're bringing in surrogates, so Terry mcauliffe, who is the corrupt Clinton surrogate and wants to be governor of Virginia, I think, again, he was governor once, right? Years ago. He says, look, yesterday I had Jill Biden here. I've had Stacey Abrams. Now, let me just say this. What constituency gets excited about having Stacey Abrams I've got Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance bottoms. Oh, I see the type. He's building a constituency on how to fraudulently steal elections. That's who he's bringing in. President Obama and, of course, Joe

Are there plus five at home. Which tells me i told you about. Sam how i think. It's a tremendous advantage to have a heisman trophy. First round pick veteran quarterback on a team that's getting recruits and well coached early in the season even more so because they've seen this movie before and this is a conference game so it matters lane stadiums of difficult place to play but north carolina going on the road. Mc a five point favorites. I actually like this. And i think that if virginia tech doesn't play like it's the game eight and catches up in his playing good football that this could actually get out of hand even though it's on the road you think about that normally in college football i know. Nfl you get basically they say well. It's three points at home for you. So if that was the case two or three points home this is if this is at north carolina this is probably type type game. Right eight and a half. I like north carolina addict. Sam house long as they protect him. We'll deliver the ball. He's been there. I well my one of my best friends.

"Shane ross. And i'm a professor of aerospace and ocean engineering at virginia tech. Welcome to the show. It's going to be her. Broadly speaking can you tell me a little bit. About what your areas of interest are. What do you study well. I have a lab that studies of variety of aspects of dynamics and this has dynamics broadly defined so anything that changes over time. Some of our bias has been looking at environmental systems and things moving through the air and the water particularly biological agents. But also i do some first principles modeling of engineering applications related to aerospace. So i know a lot of my audience comes from a machine learning perspective or a data science point of view and perhaps bring this bias. The table where you think. Just give us the data and then we'll go find a model and that can work buying in some contexts. But i know in a lot of the things you study. It's sort of the other way around right. Can you describe the process of modeling from your perspective often. The problems that i've looked at have two things transporting through an environmental fluid. So the atmosphere or some aquatic medium like the ocean or a lake so we take the point of view of typical fluid based transport so how does material move. And if there's anything on top of that like some biological or chemical process happening that just gets added on top of the fluid mechanics. Well the paper. I invited you on to do. A deep dive about is titled beach level. Twenty four hour forecasts of florida. Red tide induced respiratory irritation. So a couple of things to unpack. Maybe we could start with. What exactly is the red tide. Red tide is a name given to the phenomenon that seems to happen. A lot in florida but also throughout the gulf coast and many coast throughout the world it's an algal bloom and it's called are harmful algal bloom because of how it affects people but it it just means that algae have grown to a level that sometimes it's actually visible as red water but the florida red tide. It's not something new. It was first seen first recorded by native americans. Hundreds of years ago something that comes periodically and when it's a high enough levels it can cause respiratory irritation effects but also leads to death of fish. It has a big economic impact along the coast.

Mr Players make the playoffs missed the playoffs. He's got to get that defense cooking once again in 2021 between him and Spielman. They they're both gonna feel it. I still feel that for all of the offensive weapons that they have For everything that this team does. They're going to put up points. They're just inconsistent. The Minnesota Vikings have just seemingly been an average team. They haven't gone over that hump. I don't know if they will. I don't see summer there for long to be honest, and I look at Darius Oh, here's why I also like the Dara saw pick he seasoned. He was one of only nine true of freshman offensive lineman to start week one in the FBS in 2018. He's a 20 21st team, all SEC player. He started every game he played in each of the past two seasons.

It feels like a completely different life but luckily at least digitally we get to talk with colin goddard christian heine chris brown and stephanie abrams. All of whom are these great gun.

"Minus biology. And i'm a student in the system. Softer research group virginia tech. I'm broadly interested in building distributed systems. And i've been doing that since my master's and my phd degrees or the past five years. Broadly i focus on building reliable and high-performance distributed systems very specifically i work on this topic of consensus and agreement protocol van idress different properties of them such as scale ability and resiliency to fox previously also worked on addressing the performance aspects of certain taxes of consensus call the leaderless consensus protocol. Which i believe is the topic of today's discussion. Yeah could you draw that distinction. We've talked a little bit about paxos on some episodes but had a very leader paxos biased to that. I guess what does it look like to leaderless. Paxos the main reason you would want a leader in paxos protocol is because you won't agreement among a collection of processes it could be notes that are spread around in a wide area network or it could be in the same local area network and important a problem. The leader saws is the type of conflicts because if you allow anybody to propose values than they might not reach agreement quickly in fewer communication on. That is critical. So that is why classically a paxos protocols have been proposed the leader so that you can have domination in fewer communication steps decision can be made in. Let's say to communication steps. However what differentiates leader less paxos is that you remove the requirement for leader and introduce a different mechanism so that even without a leader. These different notes can agree on a same set of values that the agree and execute as part of their statement. Do we have to give anything up to go. Leaderless we lose eventual consistency or. Yeah what's the cost of this consistency vice. We are still able to get leaner is ability. We don't lose anything per se. But however the protocol itself gets more complex and more nuanced and subtle paxos itself is a complex protocol to understand dissect however these littlest protocol because of more addition to the original access protocol can get more complicated. You'd mentioned scale. Ability is one of the interesting things to study in these consensus protocols. Most of the papers and research. I did learning these things. We'll give me examples of like you know quorums of five or seven nodes. Which of course are great right. That's the way to learn it but in reality it's internet and cloud scale. Maybe we'd like to have orders of magnitude more nodes. What are some of the scale. Ability challenges you bump into down that path you mean. In terms of leila's protocols are in just in terms of consensus. For god's will either way maybe we can stick to your precise work or if you think it's valuable to contrast it with the more generic case that works to terms scale ability in the crush fault tolerant space before i get deep into cash phone torrens. Let me specify a little bit on the fault models themselves. So typically people work in the crash fault donald space if they're building consensus for a single organization use case data center use case fair people deeply into databases and stuff like that and the assumption in the crash. Fault tolerant space is that the machines can simply crush but they cannot behave maliciously in the sense that when they reach agreement they don't behave in a way as to deviate the consistency of the values. That is being agreed on. This is in contrast to the byzantine fault tolerant agreement problem which addresses a different set of use cases like permission blockchain allegations that require much more scale obliterated then that is required in the trash falter spaced typical even people talk about the fda talk about scale ability to fifty or hundred or more than hundred up to thousands soft notes but in crush on space. People typically talk scale ability up to five or seven notes and that is for very specific reason. And that is that consensus protocols. In general they tend to be very expensive in coordination and the performance tend to get much worse as you scale to higher number of notes and for blockchain applications. If you look at the absolute numbers the performance of the f. d. protocols for blockchain applications are much lower than safety protocols. The reason we stick to a few notes in the safety protocol is because they're not other mechanisms that use like shotting and stuff like that in order to achieve scale ability in a data center sitting.

"Carly welcome to the show was way getting started. Gives background on yourself. Yeah employed think things for having me. Brian I started out in sales about four years ago I started at memory blue. Which i don't know if you're familiar with memory blue or not but they basically breeding grounds for Inside sales professionals. And i got fortunate enough to work with a lot of technology clients And help them with their inside sales strategy so over time. I ended up Building a lot of really close relationships with those technology clients before i moved onto my new gig element analytics where any sales have to work with Enterprise industrial companies for data management so. That's a quick synopsis. what i do. What was it like. I do know memory blue. And that market is isn't it yeah I have such a close and special relationship. With with mark and chris and tommy and limit he might as well and i wouldn't trade it at all. It was really decision But as most folks no you just have to evaluate where you are in your career before you move on. And i wouldn't be where i am without them at all. So i'm very grateful for the ten minutes had there and i still am really close with everybody there But it was tempering a chapter. What was that like getting out of college and then being thrown into that. Because that's kind of the boy. Yeah it really is. It really is so. When i was in college i went to virginia tech and i studied public relations and i thought i wanted to get into marketing. And what i noticed when i was interviewing or even applying jobs you know. Nobody wanted anybody without experience. You had to have a year or change to get a job. And i stumbled across memory blewett career. They were the only company. I had time to speak with had the career fair and they gave me a chance and to be honest. I don't think. I realized i was going to be cold calling. I don't have you know friends or family and sale so it was really new experience for me But when i was younger I'm a triplet. So i have two sisters competitive growing up and i really found my place at memory. Blue and you know was a transition for the first few weeks but it was so much fun and the environment is very competitive. And that's something that i carry with me today. Was it awkward at first you. You'd never done it before you never knew who done before it was awkward. You know. I remember the first guy the answer the phone i remember his name. I remember exactly how confused he when. I called him. Because i was equally confused. Yeah exactly and over time you get used to that But it was very uncomfortable. And something that i had on my desk and i still think about you know whenever i try news. Get comfortable with the uncomfortable. And i think that holds true in every self-sufficient and a lot of things in life so and how long did it take you to get used to it or did you ever get used to it. I think about two months. You know it's funny i. I'm a big people person. I love to talk to people But talking on the song was never a thing that i enjoyed. I wasn't the type of person to call home all the time in school But once they started working memory blue all they all. I was doing most talking to people on the phone. And now i love it And especially in the world today when everything's zoom or you're talking own all day long. I think it's it's great cool.

We belong here and now I just have never tasted this good. Coca Cola together tastes better. Nothing but net. The fighting Irish fight on this is Notre Dame men's basketball. Time now for the serious exam keys to the game. First of all on defense. The Irish have to defend with intensity, but one of the things they want to continue doing is not fouling. It has been a Notre Dame tradition under Mike Brey. They just don't follow whole lot and again this year, Notre Dame is leading the NC double a In fewest files per game at 12.3. That is particularly important tonight because Virginia Tech is second in the A. C C in free throw attempts they've taken 290 so far this season. They average 22.3 free throws per game and they make 15.7 per game so you don't want to send them to the line. They are very good at drawing fouls. Rebounding is also very, very important. Virginia Tech averages just over 10 offensive rebounds per game. Another name, defended the first shot pretty well in the first game between these two teams earlier this month in Blacksburg. But they gave up 16 offensive rebounds to the Hokies, which led to 15 points. So you have to rebound and you have to be aware as well. Three point shots. Virginia Tech is a lot like Notre Dame in the way that they play offense, and they're very gifted offensively. Other guys can score on just about all three levels. Tech is third in the A, C C and three point shots.

Pandemic Advances Scientific Understanding Of Viruses' Air Transmission
"Up, we're taking a look back at some of 20 twenties major events and one of the most remarkable scientific advances this year came in our understanding of how respiratory viruses can be transmitted from one person to another through the air. Krone virus pandemic obviously made this an urgent question. And NPR's Nell Greenfield Boys reports that old scientific ideas quickly got thrown out of the window. For decades. The prevailing idea about respiratory viruses was that some were airborne, and some just weren't so back in January, Thea understanding of how viruses spread through the air. Was really primitive and incorrect. Lindsay Mars, a researcher at Virginia Tech, who studies virus transmission, she says textbooks and research papers said an airborne virus was something like measles. It could be breathed out in tiny particles called aerosols that hang in the air. Those aerosols contractual long distances from room to room. All of that was very different from non airborne viruses like flew in the common cold. Those were thought to spread through coughs and sneezes, big droplets that travel just a few feet. Maher says. This whole simplistic picture was just wrong. There were very small number of people in the world. I think who really understood at that time how viruses spread through the air, and these people realize that the new coronavirus might be airborne at short distances. That is if people talked or saying the virus could be in small particles, as well as the big droplets and coughs and in a poorly ventilated space. These particles could build up as the Corona virus outbreak took off. These experts started making a lot of noise about this and people paid attention. Maher says She thought it would take 30 years for more nuanced ideas about airborne transmission to gain widespread acceptance. But it's happened in months. It's been pretty wild to see airborne transmission of viruses become Big news. Scientific studies came superfast Josh than Tar. Pia is a researcher at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. We're not even 12 months in and We know things about this virus that you know, we don't know about some viruses that we've had around for decades. His medical center took care of some of the first people with Corona virus in the United States. Santo Pia recalls standing at the end of their beds with a device that collected air while they talked or breathed his lab, then analyzed the tiny airborne droplets. Looking for the genetic signature of the Corona virus. We were getting positives more than one positive in the air samples, and I can't say the words that I said But you're kind of broadcast this, but I was shocked signs of the virus were in such tiny particles. He worried that nothing less than the most protective masks could stop it. Soon, though, studies showed that even basic cloth masks were able to reduce the amount of virus that gets out into the air and suddenly mask wearing became routine sent our P A was floored and how ventilation became part of the normal daily conversation. You know how well ventilated is the space shouldn't be spending time inside or outside. You know how much all these things it's changed so much about the way we view the world. The question is, Will this be a lasting change? Donald Milton is a research Teacher at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. He spent years showing how better ventilation in dorms or offices is associated with a lower risk of respiratory disease transmission, he says. We need to figure out engineering solutions to improve the safety of indoor spaces like getting better ventilation, using air filters, even using special lights up by a room ceiling to disinfect circulating air. I want to see us understand how it is that you can make her Restaurant, a safe place to be during flu season and during a pandemic. I think it's doable, but he's afraid that once vaccines get this virus in check, people will lose interest at least until the next pandemic. Nell Greenfield Boys NPR news
The worst is over for the travel industry, but expect a 'spotty' recovery
"The first covert vaccine could be viewed as the beginning of the end of the pandemic. But some will feel its effects for quite a while. The tourism industry won't recover quickly from the damage, says Virginia Tech business professor Mahmood Khan will become a landmark, he says, would be travelers or a different kind of clientele. Now empathy. And patience will be the two most important things that all service providers have to take into account whether it is travel industry or restaurant industry.
Patriots at Dolphins: Alain Poupart breaks down Miami's running game
"The Houston was really the only team I would say that actually through on the Patriots effectively this year and DeShaun Watson besides Russell Wilson all the way back in week two thousand. I am curious, you know, the Dolphins do they have a running game. Do you think that they can do that with because I don't see it, but I don't want to I don't want to be biased over here. Either way. I mean, there are 30 second in the league in rushing yards per attempt. They were missing their top three rushing leaders last Sunday against the Chiefs. What's a be perfectly blunt? None of them are impact players Matt breida came off the covid-19. Wednesday obviously he'll be back. When he hasn't made much of an impact after coming over from the 49ers in the in the trade Myles Gaskin is on the Cove in list and he's a nice story as a second-year seventh-round pick who laughs basically got a cup of coffee in terms of playing time this year and he basically became their feature back and he's got some ability. But in a in an Ideal World Cup gasket is your backup is now your future back in this is what the Dolphins are dealing with our offensive line. Also a good story much better than was last year. They're starting three rookies with Austin Jackson am handsome in kinloch. but when you start three rookies pretty much ninety-nine percent of the time you're going to go through some growing pains and their offensive line while again exponentially better than what last year is still not great. Let's say it's worked in like but they're not a whole lot of big old being open in the running game and you don't have running backs off will make a lot of things happen on their own. So there's a reason again there there are thirty-second in the NFL in rushing yards per attempt and complicating matters. This week is they have injury issue is that wide receiver position where they also have a lot of players but not a whole lot of impact players. So you mentioned might get sick you earlier I believe and now he's got a shoulder injury where we can't get any Clarity from Ryan Flores as to his status for this week. It's all we'll see is working on all that. But if you saw the injury really really hard to Envision him playing cards Devante Port Parker pulled a hamstring or had a hamstring injury against the Chiefs you came out in the first app did not return. He practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, so hopefully play it but then if he plays this carrying a hamstring injury. And then so who else do you have left after that now you're looking at your team Grant who is more of a return specialist and and then their shuttle pass receiver gadget Play type of player on offense. He's also got a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Chiefs game. And then the rest of the wide receiver Corps is rookie limbo Junior who played multiple positions at Kentucky. You have a Mack Hollins who want to sign as a special-teams standout, which he is. He's very going to special teams but more so than the receiver and then you have one of the guys being talked up being able to make a major contribution as Isaiah Ford who you may remember from his three weeks with the Patriots after the acquired immune to trade in his office. I knew he was he didn't play it down for the Patriots. I knew how long is not going to last year when he got up here and he said it is freezing. I need a winter coat, you know, what am I going to do? And I just said look, I'm sure he's a fine football player. I'm sure he could make an impact on the team that needs wide receiver help but this guy does not seem like he wants to be in New England right now. Well, no, but he plays at Virginia Tech. So I'm so he's not like dead. He's from Jacksonville plant in Virginia tag, so it's not like he's not he's never been the call before and the thing about Isaiah Ford and then it was often friends are thinking. Well, Isaiah Ford is going to come and rescue the the passing game and that like life. He's a really really really nice good. And he might be in the league for ten years because he's got a great attitude. He works hard doesn't see anything. He's not an impact player. And right now this is what they have their wide receiver Corps. If she doesn't play they have nobody who's going to really scare the Patriots defense and if you you throughout the city also doesn't play. I mean who makes things happen on this office on Sunday? So that that's a big
Early signing day: Latest on the nation's top 25 college football recruits
"It's signing day part one in college football with the early signing period. now which. I'm sure coaches love because they championship games and bowl games. All that other stuff. It is obviously been a very busy time for the uc coaching staff. And a big reason why is putting together a twenty three players signing class or recruiting class. I should say for the the class of two thousand and twenty one during the early signing period we are obviously huge fans of bear journal. Dot com chad. Brendel comes on this show all the time. He'll be with us tomorrow at three forty five but because it is sunday i wanted to bring in brent young who also covers. Uc's sports and pretty heavy recruiting emphasis for bearcat journal dot com. He is on twitter at. Excuse me at be young sports and He's with us this afternoon. I appreciate the time. What should i what what stands out most about this. This particular group of players the bearcats have inked You know what really stands out to me. The most i often travel on. It's just kind of the debt that that numerous positions the the high level of talent. It might not have the the top players like you know. You have last year with with prater and jean thomas and jane thompson. The four stars really really kind of flooding the top of the list. But what was really shown and this one is just the death and the amount of talent that they're able to bring in not really clear that you would expect kind of just be headliners for each class but just the amount of players that are highly rated at each physician. You're going to have numerous players. They're going to have big impact next year special teams but more further down the line right. Give me one or two players. That if i look at this bunch and i'm trying to find a kid who's gonna make an immediate impact year one or two stands out. You don't have to go with i. Brian threats i think first off. He's one of the seven early enroll. East coming in is going to be a player out of you. Know w kaufmann there and the clubs. They're gonna come in and be a player that wants to get on the field no matter what so. You're going to see him on special teams quite a lot. You're going to see him trying really find his role on the defensive side. You know obviously defense is going to have a humorous players that are going to have to be funneled out and figured out who's going to be replacing all the seniors that are currently on the roster. So yeah i think threats comes in. He has a knack for the ball defensively. He has the ability to make big plays. You know you play offense as well as the high school level but really defensively special teams where. I'm expecting him to kind of have almost an immediate impact and then outside of that You know give me. Give me an office alive because it seems. Recently we have causes there possibly had numerous true freshman. Kind break that that that you know. Talk to on the depth chart. And i think that you look at a player like luke collins where who could step in at the tackle position is one of the better fruits that program history for the bearcats. And i think he's gonna have a chance to really kinda shy know now. Land is gonna have a chance to really shine but and then of course you look at the depth as i've constantly mentioned it's going to be hard for some of these players really crack the rotation because now you see we've been able to turn you know one as one bs and constant we have players available at each position. So really specialties. Would be the place to watch out for. Maybe i'd a toxic to watch out for who could have an impact on kickoff teams kickoff return team things of that sort. There are seven kids from the greater cincinnati area around up the kids from from From from from this class from the greater cincinnati area. yeah. I talked about Gmc defensive player of the year. It of seems like that's been that the bearcats have been able to do is bring in big time defensive players from the great cincinnati area and that first off. He has a fantastic a phenomenal nickname. And it's the godfather dante. I mean better. Carry that with him and he'd better have it all the way throughout his playing career. Whether it is in the nfl anywhere he goes. Dante corleones the godfather of course from rain high school. He's going to be a cog in the middle. You shake his hand and he just completely engulfs your hand. It makes you feel small just a bowling ball of a player. And he kinda of exact situation as i say of the death i mean. He's he's the second lowest rated player in this entire recruiting class. But you've accused. Gmc defensive player of the year. you get sacks. he's going to be a big shopper. Upfront i mean forced. You gotta mentioned the land fickle. That really great story about him is is of course he. He sat down at the dinner table with his father. And he said you know data. I think i'm gonna be a bearcat and and we've said no. I don't accept that i need a little bit more. You know force behind that. And that's you know he said okay came back days later and i'm sure he fought as much force as possible and You know land is going to be a player. That i think is surprised. Because he's got the talent that his dad has of leeward hours another great flare out of princeton. I mean you just keep on going up and down the list and then of course you know you got ice. Jarman is a good outside player. And i already talked about mouth glenn. This is just going to be another one of those. The state of cincinnati is what they call it and and keeping hometown heroes around the greater cincinnati area. They're all gonna big impact on the team. All right look. I'm not gonna ask you to be an expert on every recruiting class in the country but there are folks at twenty. Four seven are relentless. Put this class up against other competitors in the put this class up against their competitors among a group of five schools. And then tell me where would stack up or how would stack up to even some of the schools that we frequently talk about them. Trying to recruit among power five schools. Right you know first off forty second in the country. You might know that at that and think okay. That seems like a high number but you break it down. This is pop.

It's just that's what you're going to do. I think they've avoided knowing that they wanted there is the buffer because they didn't want to commit to saying Okay, we need to move a game early in the season. Two week 18 when we still have the buy weeks to work with now that they're running out of eyes for some teams, they're just going to move into week eight.

I'll come pick and I got a game. Believe me, I don't pick these games system Does I believe in the system? It's done well for the last four years, But who knows what's going to happen now? I wouldn't blame you if you didn't want to fade me at this moment being a little bit cold, but I saw a game. I don't pick these games out. Believe me what I tell you this, but Virginia Tech is playing Boston College. Now Boston College is three and wanted in a pretty good year. They passed the football. The quarterback got eight touchdowns, two interceptions. Virginia Tech is is to win one They fall Teams of lost in North Carolina, but Yet Virginia Tech is laying 12 points. The Boston College of Virginia Tech. Now Virginia Tech, sort of, like been over the years. My New York Jets jets. I've picked them three times this year they have uncovered to spread yet. Okay, so I'm Yeah, and I'm very tentative about taking this game, but it graded on my sheet. It's a night game on Saturday night. It's going to be Virginia Tech against the Boston College. Kate Virginia Tech, minus 12 Vipers Just just just mark it in the W. Kalevala 12. That's a top 20 Top five team against the three and one eagle's eye like it. Bartek is the plane minus 12 point Sounds good, Mike and I'll talk to anybody. Always sounds good before the game, babe. That's right. Always does. That's Mike North at north North on Twitter. Let's grab a couple more calls. If we could squeeze him in before we're out of here are greenies coming up in a matter of minutes? This is Anthony in Florida. What's up, Anthony? Yes. Good afternoon, gentlemen. Afternoon. I just have to say I'm Shannon in on your discussion on lost faith and Maggie for me. I blame pace for most of this. And you know he does not have the offensive lying. We don't have quite the personnel that we moved and to be very honest. I never really believed in nagging. You know, from his his last Whatever play calling in Kansas City. I didn't like how that playoff game ended without him running the ball. It seemed just pretty obvious and he had a good start to his tenure with the bare they went 12 and four but again. I wasn't really impressed offensively with that, 12, and for that they could have been So much better, And we're always I noticed were always fighting in the games that what is the last time we had, like a nice comfortable with the Bucks game in 2018? Yeah. There you go. The game. I mean, and that's why you know people want to talk about the defense. The defense is better when the offense is scoring, isn't it not? I mean, they get more chances to rush the passer when the other team half the throw always, and I think that's what made 18 so great. They did have lead that was the best. Their offense was, and I grew there that it wasn't great thatyou're, but it's the best it was under nag, which is Kind of sad. Hopefully, like you're upset. Now, with all these weeks to go as long as Nick Foles stays healthy, he's got his quarterback. Maybe we'll see the offense that we were promised or the or or something that will tell us mad. Maggie knows what he's doing. And we hope you will find out thanks to Mike. Nor, thanks to Todd Furman, Sloppy track at Belmont Sloppy Track at Belmont, the third race the seven horses to play for today. Thank you for listening and calling and contributing today and great job by producers. Midway Jeff Miller and J. R. Strauss. Everybody enjoy the weekend greenies. Next.

"That the president only pardons one but then they both get the hang out the one that doesn't get pardon does not go directly to Butterball status on the platter somewhere what should be a fancy platter could in that but and they're going to they're going to Virginia Tech or something like that as opposed to writing in a parade to Disneyland and ending up in a pen is missing now like a replaced by some of the whole Star Wars edit this at any rate we will break down with that breaking news because I gotta figure trump's and make it entertaining it usually just say again that had however it is on this test yesterday but it is one of the dumbest things presidents do all the way back to Harry S. Truman I guess it's a way to just sort of well what it is is a way to promote Turkey's because of the national Turkey federation somehow never heard every president since since Truman to do this but only since bush forty one member the time went only since bush forty one has become a Turkey pardoning exercise Eddie I met with trump release ever get the first year with the birds were but last year was peas and carrots this year's bread and butter she could only imagine next year and will it be the the cannabis infused gravy I mentioned last half hour which may help call mmhm political discussions around the thanksgiving bird well there you have own coming up by the folks over at the college fix dot com have gone out to rid the go this time Saint Olaf college St Olaf college and the did the obligatory man and woman on the street they're talking to people say about thanksgiving is it okay to celebrate thanksgiving is it okay especially talk about god is it okay Hey you could imagine where those are we'll get to some of those later in the are also Darrell isa former congressman and former chair of the house of representatives oversight committee were there did many there so ticked off at Attorney General Bob Barr right now the reason there's a bill bart bill barb there's a Bob Barr duties being Congress thank you bill Barr as in William Barr who passed the bar as a matter of fact we go back to that on this time so why James person is with us here right now newsmax dot com James person dot com Jim is we're gonna try to get into the thanksgiving eve eve mode more waiting for breaking news at least are out of service in Washington they're back in their districts no basing their bird or whatever they're doing out showing the bird cavities right that anymore I think about that but it is as we will await the presidential pardon of this year's Turkey is I something somebody's going to say that there is it's not fair the turkeys got to stay at a posh hotel like the weather that's not fair to all Americans who can't even go there first of Turkey's went there in every sense of the highbrow stuff that around so what we may have to break in on that search so Jim this thing about thanksgiving being revised it is are we getting used to it now it's almost like people are started catch themselves like self editing like when you don't want to say merry Christmas you realize you've been editing yourself for a long time ago thanksgiving doesn't get up there's not a lot of money tied to it so yeah I didn't seem to get as much attention as say hello we you know maybe because it's a family kind of a holiday it has a spiritual dimension and it's a very traditional and spring pulley American thanksgiving is a kind of a part of American exception elegy gosh you know although I you know I cover all if you were talking about pardoning turkeys all we would wish the wishes that the president could pardon the last Charlie's angels movie well the Turkey but I'm home well considering other presidential pardons Marc rich comes to mind under Obama toward presidents can do I understand that presidents are also commander in chief and you know you can do what he wants to do with the ID Gallagher case and so forth but but in the middle of it I guess we should be thrilled and refreshed that during this most wonderful time of the year the president will free to Turkey's who really have no other mission in life other than to be eaten and just let them live out their wives with government pensions and we're gonna do it Virginia Tech no I think I you know what I think is so striking about this particular thanksgiving holiday is the last speech at the end of the impeachment inquiry there Adam shook made his normally poking out eyes bugged out even further and Adam Schiff started talking about what an iron clad cases was what a danger it was that the president is in the White House and every second counts this is urgent we're taking a break right doesn't rice's will be back doing next Thursday everybody John ten days off and I'm watching here watching all the screens are the Turkey pardoning as I I don't see the the participants out there yet in the White House we will break away to that live as quickly as we can but I mean right let's let's go to the campus well don't you think Peter is going to organize some sort of a protest that you know it's discrimination just pardon one oh yeah absolutely it's it's clearly will be Turkey discrimination data that bigoted again we get some quiet down there well see that's stopping me all they do is gobbling wall around their turkeys back in my mom's yard in Illinois the wild turkeys there are so plentiful now you got people back there say well we shouldn't go hunting them now they pull into the suburban neighborhoods like for my mom is and sometimes you look out and you'll see about you know fifteen turkeys out there just across the road just standing there smoking cigarettes you know it's like the as maybe a hallucinating some of that but but it's like the the sea lions of children's for one lawyer they get together they organize all of a sudden the gang members are there the union organizers Warner behold so well let's go out to the let's stick with the animal theme some of the lemmings on the college campuses in the land of the snow flakes to keep in festive this is actually I I said it was it's in all of college but as Kyle Hooton whose I believe from St Olaf college college fix dot com they decided to can I say that it works the people on campus the Macalester college in Minnesota asking the Minnesotans there about thanksgiving is it okay to even think about celebrating yeah well I think they.
