"You're listening to WAB week in review with me Alex Helmut Well as another hurricane season approaches some Georgians are still feeling the impact of storms that struck the state in the last few years Emily Jones told us how they're preparing for the next storm When hurricane Matthew passed offshore of Georgia in 2016 it tore down trees damaged houses and flooded much of the coast But Larry and Donna piper didn't get much water about two inches in part of their marsh front home on tybee island So when hurricane Irma came less than a year later they decided to stay put rather than evacuate again The water just kept coming in coming Larry piper says Irma hit right at high tide It took all my sandbags at the back door and deposited them in the front yard That's how swift occur it was They had four feet of water on their property and over two feet inside the house And that meant everything Floor sheet rock appliances had to go I tore it all the way down to ten roof and the studs It was the same at nearly every house on their street As you can see most of them are fairly modest homes And this was working class neighborhood This was not fancy beachfront homes George Shaw is tidy's community development director Some folks were able to save some stuff but after Irma every yard had a giant pile in front of it full of stuff Most of those houses including the pipers sat only a foot or two off the ground So the city applied for and received a federal grant to elevate houses Most of them on this street The piper's house now stands almost 11 feet off the ground on concrete columns High enough to park their cars under and hopefully high enough to stay dry Marshall shepherd of UGA says steps like this to keep people and property safe are essential as climate change makes hurricanes stronger This is not looming This is coming It's here So what are we doing about it Who's most impacted and how do we move forward from a policy and a sort of societal fabric standpoint to deal with it Leaders all over Georgia are grappling with those questions made all the more urgent by three devastating hurricanes in the last 6 years Those storms also point to dangers of climate change that experts like shepherd hadn't focused on before Like that South Georgia has more to worry about than drought and heat Now I would have to say drought plus the press the impact of really strong hurricanes that maintain their intensity as they move further inland That's what hurricane Michael did in 2018 After making landfall as a category 5 hurricane in the Florida Panhandle it was still a category two storm When it reached southwest Georgia where Eric Cohen was farming more than 1400 acres of pecans The hurricane Michael basically It took 800 acres of our farm devastated it lighted on the ground So basically our molding pharma 200 acres of pecans now It takes about a decade for pecan trees to mature so Cohen says it just didn't make sense to replant He's now a real estate agent in nearby thomasville He leases the rest of his land to farmers growing crops like peanuts and cotton that can bounce back faster And rather than taking over the pecan farm Cohen's son is studying to be a dentist I've been preaching this to my son That you don't need to depend.

"App Mostly cloudy skies 79° in the city amplifying Atlanta This is 90.1 WAB From NPR news this is all things considered I'm Daniel estrin And I'm Ari Shapiro This brilliant darkness is a book born of insomnia It's a collection of written profiles and photos When I spoke to the author Jeff Charlotte at the time of the book's publication a couple years ago he told me that by taking readers deep into other people's lives he's really trying to tell his own story I originally thought of it as a memoir through other people's lives It's bookended by two heart attacks My father's and then two years later my own and it's a collection of the strangers whose stories I shared they shared with me in those years in between those heart attacks and attempting to find a narrative together I love the idea of a memoir told through other people's lives But I'm not totally sure I understand what that means There's a phrase out there that I really am not fond of Some people especially if you're writing about the poor or people who are marginalized giving voice to the voiceless And I don't like that phrase I don't like the idea that I'm telling other people's stories their stories of their own The only story I can tell is mine of the encounters between us And that's always happening in nonfiction And I think in this book for me encountering strangers taking their photographs taking just sort of these snapshots of these moments that we shared together Was a way of narrating this experience that I was having encountering them and then thinking about how these stories work together to account for what was happening in my own understanding of the world What you're describing telling your own story through the story of others sounds antithetical to so much of what we're taught about journalism that we're supposed to be the fly on the wall the impartial observer and as a journalist I imagine you've had to adhere to that for a long time What did it feel like to do the opposite You know this book began one night I was working in a Dunkin Donuts working on a magazine deadline And I've been a magazine journalist for a long time and I was getting frustrated by the story where you have a trend or a larger point or an argument where the people you meet are not so much people in themselves as illustrations of some larger conversation Right we're going to represent somebody who wants Medicare for All And we're going to represent somebody who is an immigrant Yeah Yeah and look that's important work And it needs to be done I was burned out from doing it And that night I looked up and I see the night baker and he's wearing this T-shirt with this sort of baroque ornately drawn skull which is not the Dunkin Donuts uniform You know and I get to talk to him and it's his last night on the job He can't stand the night shift anymore This is his way of expressing his feelings about that job And I ask if I can take his picture and I notice there's this little tattoo of a tear beneath his right eye and I ask him about it and it was for his son who had died at two months old and we suddenly sort of stumbled into this space of intimacy and we were both there together For me to pretend that I was a fly in the wall At that moment in the middle of the night with this person that would be inaccurate That would be false And I was trying to tell true story So many of the people whose stories you tell in this book are on the margins of society and there's a homeless immigrant who was shot by police in California There's an elderly woman in a wheelchair who depends on social services and upstate New York The queer people in Russia who are bashed for protesting and anti gay law why were these the kinds of people you gravitated to do you think You know I had been sort of reporting for years and I had collected a lot of stories and I sort of I'd always thought that you moved from one story to another and it hadn't occurred to me that stories accumulate and they had accumulated for me and they were keeping me awake at night The book began with me sort of posting these pictures and on Instagram and I put a hashtag night shift and then I click on the hashtag I'd see these thousands of other people who were awake at night Documenting their existence and there was a kind of a community and a solidarity there Did writing this book give you the kind of purging or catharsis that you were hoping for In a sense twice I wrote what I thought was the last line of the book and then I started to feel the sort of weight in my chest And I was 44 and I was having a heart attack On the day that you wrote what you thought would be the last line of the book Yeah where do I get that minute And stranger than that the book began in the sense in a clock tower I was going to use it to write and then I got a call my father had a heart attack I had to go And I'd been borrowing it from a friend a poet And I didn't return to that room for two years and then finally now I was going to rent it was going to be my writing room I go there to write the last page of my book and I have a heart attack Wow And after that I had to sort of rewrite the book Again I had to sort of think about the stories I was telling and it's where the title of the book comes from this brilliant darkness and that rest of that line is with which I was I am coming to terms and that's an ongoing ongoing process So what do you mean when you say the rest of the line is with which I'm coming to terms Throughout the book there's some images of this field that I love to take photographs of And especially after the heart attack because I was recovering I would go for these long walks at night and think about the night shift and think about darkness and think about that it's always there and I don't necessarily want to shine a light that dispels it I want to live with it And so when you ask if the stoke book is cathartic catharsis would suggest that I've achieved some serenity Of course not It's an ongoing story I hope You had such intimate experiences with the people who you feature in the book Have you kept in touch with any of them Some and some I wish I could marry mazar who was a 60 or one year old woman living in a transient motel and my hometown is connected to New York and who really participated and wanted to participate and sort of collaborate in deep way But Mary goes in and out of homelessness she is very suspicious of everybody her best friend is a plant that she carries around and she understands how people see that But you know she's this great line She says it's my brain and I'll do what I want with it And that's how her view of her mental health is And when she is back out on the street it's very very hard to find or others There's a man named Jared Miller and Skid Row who he was what the local dealers called a spice bat spice a street drug And in return for a certain amount of drugs he ran errands for them He had a son to whom a young son to whom he wanted to get back He was hoping to clean himself up and I ended.

"Way to connect with fans In this week's episode of WAB tech cast Emil Moffat explores the technology and value and controversy behind them Greg Mike has been creating art in Atlanta for the past 15 years My style I would say is kind of pop art street art contemporary art a lot of bright bright colors bold line work It was about four years ago while at a Bitcoin conference in San Francisco that he first heard about minting NFTs You know we were paying a giant mural and it was painted live throughout the course of the event And people kept coming up to me and they kept saying hey are you going to mint this thing And at that time I had no idea what minting meant But over the next few years he began to think differently about his creative process and about how many people in his generation grew up creating art on the computer In February 2021 he created his first collection of NFTs All my work is created digitally first So once that all clicked and I started realizing that the digital files that I'm actually creating are actually the originals And my paintings that I'm painting whether that's a mural or a painting in the studios almost a replica I mean it's still an original in its own sense but there is some value in the digital piece of it And putting value on a digital original is a big part of what NFTs are all about Professor Ben Kaczynski teaches at emery's go set a business school He says the issue for years with digital files has been that they can be reproduced over and over again but with NFTs that's beginning to change So with the use of blockchain technologies and immutable records that allow us to label something as unique in a recognizable fashion I can take that artifact that image that piece of music that is eminently exchangeable and make it unique and identifiable And therefore possibly more valuable While buying an NFT doesn't give the purchaser the copyright to an image or song they could resell the NFT itself that would mean a little more money for the original artist through what's known as a smart contract As NFTs grew in popularity more and more Atlanta artists are taking note and coming up with creative uses for them My name is Ashley Franz I'm the CEO of a and F consulting Her introduction to NFTs came about four years ago too She now advises artists and companies on NFTs blockchain and cryptocurrency There's just so many different ways that you can utilize NFTs as artists you know to get that funding that you need She says this is especially important for artists from black and brown communities who don't always have access to capital and can't always get the attention from record labels and art galleries France also says it's important to think of NFTs as beyond just an image or a song She says they can also be used to create unique fan experiences So whether that be behind the scenes content meet ups VIP in person events et cetera and then once you've utilized this membership or maybe you move you're able to sell it and somebody else will have access to it But while some artists see NFTs as a new revenue stream others see them as a drain on energy resources Professor Kaczynski had Emory says it's because this blockchain technology the key to making NFTs valuable can be very energy intensive Their intended to create a trustable process But by so doing they create negative impact on energy consumption And those mechanisms need to be changed underneath And as for all that money being spent by investors scooping up NFTs Kandinsky says much of the buying is speculative at the moment And so people have to take a long horizon even in dealing with a short horizon transaction While the long-term value of NFTs remains uncertain Kandinsky says the underlying technology.

Cbc and have transitioned to writing full time in january you will begin writing the highly anticipated sequel to moon the crusted snow. What's it like writing a book about a dystopia world during a pandemic. it's a very weird. It has sort of made me take a step back and sort of reassess. My i guess plan for the book In in not a major overhaul kind of way just sort of taking a look at some of the minor elements of you know dystopia and the end of the world in this world that created with the crested snow after sort of pick it back up in. My plan is to write about the post apocalypse. Ten years after the end of the crisis. No right so. I have to imagine what's going to be left or the world's what exactly led to the demise of civilization and i guess the biggest challenge is trying to imagine the details of everyday life that are going to exist. You know ten twelve years after the end of the world and what exactly prompted that and to you know so i was originally thinking that there'd be a sickness slash klag element to it but now i'm considering considering house going to work right because you know in that sense. I have to sort of balance speculation with reality now that we are actually living through a play. It's been kind of weird but it's been good too. Because you know for the first time in my life i can focus full time on my imagination and writing these stories so i feel very fortunate. I feel very privileged to be able to do this right now. And so what can readers expect with the new book well They can expect a world. I guess in the aftermath of the blackout that happened in moon of the crusted snow and they'll experience the world through the eyes of the community once again and what the community members going to be doing. There's going to be about five or six of who are on a quest to see what's left of the world so we're going to travel south in hopes of reclaiming their spots on georgian bay. Where which is their original homeland this community right because of the crisis. No you learn that. This community of national back was originally displays from the south to the fire north. So either on this quest to see what's left of the world in what's left of their original homeland so I find out what happens to these characters and how. The new generation of the community grows up. You know in this new era and that's a real fun thing to imagine to for sure. So since the beginning of the pandemic interest in one of the crusted snow has picked up again. Why do you think that's the case I think that's due to a number of reasons. I lead people have more time to read. He owned their at home a lot. And i think they're looking for you know interesting stories to pass the time and you know. It's a huge honor for me to have another bump For my book you know. But i think there's a in added appetite to read post-apocalyptic or dystopia stories because we are living through this end of the world. And i think people want to read a resolution. In any sort of post-apocalyptic apocalyptic story there's always an end to what's going on and and it's not always a happy ending but there is some finality. They're in right now. We sort of have an idea of how this is going to end. Because you know there's discussions about vaccines that are gonna be out soon. But it's still very mysterious right and that's what happened in the first months of the pandemic you know. We just didn't know what was going to happen. So i think reading a book about an end of the world still provides some sort of ending right some sort of resolution and end in a book like none of the crisis snow despite you know the trauma of a world ending in the tragedies that accompany it's there is an underlying spirit of hope in that story in that you know the community Looks to the future and sees it as an opportunity for renewal. And i think people are looking for hope and they can find that implicit bach stories.
Why stories matter now more than ever
"In late March in an apparent attempt to avoid cove nineteen a Quebec couple drove thousands of kilometers west to White Horse. Uconn then they travel to the flying community of old crow a community of about two hundred fifty people one still without a case of covert nineteen but the couple was eventually sent packing chief. Dana. Tj Tram of the Glitch in first nation was shocked by the couple's actions. To tell you the truth I was not prepared for a random couple from Quebec to to. Just come off the plane. It was really concerning to people just because we have a very small tight knit community that have grown old together for generations so for some strangers just to show up one day. It was almost as if someone just walks into your house and helps himself to your fridge if he will. But especially under the Kovic crisis this only had exponential affects. This story sounded a bit familiar to Guizhou Rice. Because he had written it. Before or at least a fictionalized version of it. And his post apocalyptic novel moon of the crusted snow while gisha is initially bay from the socks in first nation and also the host of. Cbs's up north. Hello Wab. Welcome back to this. Show month brand I Roseanne. Thanks for having me again. Why don't Weird Weird Situation? This is so weird I was tagged dozens of times. Chris Static the witches lawyer is original tweet about it and Yeah it kind of blew my mind very confusing. I Bet I bet you feel a bit. Like an oracle not really but. I you know obviously see the parallels between the you know this real life imitating fiction right. I wrote that particular plot points of Muna crusted snow just as a what if not as this sort of how to guides so maybe. I feel guilty as a result of that. I don't know I for the UNINITIATED. Tell us a bit about your book. Moon of the crusted snow. Okay Yeah So. It's a look at the moment of apocalypse From the perspective of northern New Snobby Community. And what happens in the story is there is a blackout due to sort of mysterious. 'cause They communications go then. The power goes outright so this community because it says so far north that people are still somewhat connected to the lane and they're able to adapt to sort of move through this sort of confusing new era but those who aren't as adapt that sort of hunting fishing and You know living off the lanes descend into a bit of panic and chaos and then on top of that just things start really getting intense. Agai comes from a city in the south. The Big White Guy who has equally mysterious background as you know as the catastrophe itself and He begins sort of imposing his will and then he's followed by some other people from the south things. The community is forced to make some pretty serious decisions as to how they're going to survive and how they're going to move forward in this new era. Yeah now this plotline that your frank you with the with the gentlemen coming from the South I'm obviously they're they're looking for food shelter and a knowledge to survive in this new reality but the indigenous community really response Interestingly to this to this To this person showing up in that they make initially welcome him in as right. Yeah and you know. There is a bit of conflicts some tension amongst community members as to what they're going to do but a lot of the leadership in this. I know in that in that particular community is still very closely connected to national values despite you know. Colonialism enforces simulation as such. So you know some of the people believe we as we should welcome this individual in and try to work together with him to create a you know a good community as we try to navigate this new reality of living in the darkness right Sort of how. He's able to take his place In the community so when this story in the Yukon I broke just recently many people online silly related to your book. What did you think when you first heard about? I thought back to win. I started writing moon of the crusted snow and that was always going to be a major plot elements of the story. Was THIS JUSTIN SCOTT CHARACTER. This white guy coming into the community from the city right and then sort of imposing his will and As I began writing it about a month or so in I started having doubts as to whether that would actually happen. You know I thought. Would there actually be people who would flee the city in a crisis in go to the res- to seek shelter to seek safety and so on so I thought that's not believable at all? I don't have a viable story. You know but it went to this House party in Ottawa Halloween Party. Actually when I was living there and that was about a month and a half into writing the first draft and was steeped in this doubt about whether this was a believable story and I started talking to this random dude their end because it's so deep into the sort of Story in thinking about the end of the world that was basically all I was talking about the people at the time so I must have been pretty fun chat back then but anyways I was talking to this guy and we were talking about things. Go down and what would happen. And so on. And he uttered the blue says. Yeah if it all went down if things fell apart here in the city the first place I'm going to the res- and I was like. Oh Yeah I was like Whoa. Why why would you go there? Wh- what's the thinking behind that he's like well you know how to. Heinz how to live in the Bush and you know it'd be a good place for me to hide out and I said okay Well which do you want to go to? You know? Thinking of the spy reserves to to Ottawa. Tanay Guy Kidding. Zv Golden Acres CETERA. And he's like doesn't matter whichever one I can get to you. The quickest right so I kinda thought you know. This is very presumptuous of this new to think that he can just go to arrests. But that was the sort of validation. I needed to write this Justin Scott character because I thought okay. There's one guy who believes this so I can write the story you know but I guess there are a lot more people who think that including a young couple from Quebec willing to drag style meters to like the other end of the land right so weary so back then it spiracy theory exactly you ever imagine like something like this might happen one day when you put your head. Deep into post apocalyptic gorgeous doping fiction. You're always all the possibilities right but I think you never really prepared for the big moments you know when something actually happens and I don't think I could have ever imagined that pandemic to the scale you know like that's sad though like people are slowly started to realize that the world we did living is gone now and what. We're going to emerge in something totally different like we're going to have different ways of life and they're going to be different roles and responsibilities that we all have resulted so I think keeping those things in mind in how resilient indigenous people are especially in overcoming these crises that has prepared mentally in some ways. Although I'm not Maybe not physically or supply wise prepared as well as it should be just in case right so the thing about anyways
From immersion camps to podcasts: Innovation attracts new Indigenous language speakers
"I'm Wab Gisha. Grace inforwars dear child this week talking all about revitalizing indigenous languages on the show today in flood cracks new clock. My Indian name. I am from the new cloth. Nation in Bella. I am Learner Speaker of the folks language. That's Marlene King. And if you had told her a year ago that she would not only be teaching the new hug language but revitalizing it. She wouldn't have believed you. That's because the fifty three year old grandmother had just started relearning herself now. Marlene is part of a group of community members community with only a dozen fluent speakers working with the new college to preserve the language for future generations. She joins us now from Belqola. Hello Marlene Hi. So can you describe the approach? New Ho- college has taken to language. Revitalization hop language has been Taught in our school for like the last thirty years. Our language teachers have done an excellent job and revitalizing our language and we have sixty to return to the Nicole through another little linguistic person that works for our community who does work with our elders and our language his name is Dale. Mccreary is a vital piece of teaching. Our language is very crucial to our language. Here and Bella cool. We have now got the money to digitize and transcribed these tapes that were were handed over to our nation winner. Those tapes from they are from nineteen sixty seven nineteen sixty eight. Wow what do you expect to find on those tapes? You're going to be a lot of knowledge on these tapes leg back then like a lot of the conversation on the table at the tables. Were all in new hawk. So you know some of the forgotten words that we don't use today because we had three different dialect. We had three different villages who spoke different languages. But there were very very similar to their their stories over elders In the early sixties and seventies and they were forgotten they. They haven't been available to the people that they were just returned to nation. March two thousand nineteen and these are critical recordings and they need to be analyzed by our linguistics and I have knowledge keepers and language speakers. It's wonderful you mentioned hearing forgotten words on some of these archival recordings see. Can you tell us what may be some of those words or expressions are? I can't tell you that because I haven't heard any of the tapes myself so all of this is new late. It's all new. So they're just being digitized today today as we speak. Are you excited to hear some county? Hear it in my voice. Of course I am just so I'm ecstatic. And in that sense you know finding out some of these Words and expressions kind of like digging up treasure against say yes. It's like Goldline for our language and we really need to preserve that everybody's excited to find out what's on these tapes right We have between three of our People that speak our language to Vancouver to A training course for but we have a reel to reel tapes as well that we're not able to do those recordings rate until we get the proper equipment for those recordings and it sounds like a huge project lots of technical components to what's the biggest challenge you've come across right now is the reel to reel Because you know we don't know what these tapes because deteriorated or but they've been kept very well so were assuming that these tapes that they're still viable merlene. Why is it so vital to do this now? Because a lot of our elders And knowledge keepers have passed on. We've when two thousand ten or two thousand eleven. I believe we lost like seven allders with the Library of knowledge and language and culture. They were very crucial to our language. You know what I was given Of Given three VHS tapes that have an elder from my community. Do some teachings in some language. So I'M GONNA go try to those digitize now. I'm inspired to do that just by talking to you today. Oh that is too awesome. Awesome Merlene thank you very much for your time. Congratulations on this great project. And all the best going forward okay. Still Marlene King. Is the cultural adviser for New College in. Bella Kula BC.

"wab c." Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Ball was very visible the whole time and he got rock pretty good. Those, those were loud outs and loud hits against him today. Their grad Regas was very good. I can't tell if you know, he's back to good command. Again. It was two innings. And sorta mop up work it's hard to tell but it wouldn't shock me to see him stay up here for a while and get a start. Hey, I want to talk a little bit about river islands and they opened up their new baseball field this week and match wab did a beautiful article about it. And of course, Don Johns is the architects, so to speak of baseball of river islands. But it's one of the best amateur facilities, maybe the best in northern California. But river islands is located in Leith ripped just past Tracy on the banks of the San Joaquin river people. Love the San Joaquin river for boating fishing access to hundreds of miles of delta waterways. When you're at river islands, and you have a home there, you're there. You're ready to enjoy that part of northern California, and it's really just an amazing place, as a jumping off point, so to speak, you can commute back into the bay area during the week. But on the weekends you can make a day trip to Yosemite. Aaron is up there, too. Longa camp to Wanda or head to the gold country or the wine country. And of course, you know. Well, when I'll be a priest ranch at their tasting room in young on June thirteenth five to seven we'll do a little bit of the professor and, and me and we'll definitely entertain questions and I'm sure there'll be some stuff to give away and stuff like that. So that is June the thirteen that's a Thursday. So talking a little bit more about river islands ten new home neighborhoods. They're being built thirty model homes reviewing all of them are built by some of the best builders in the bay area with all these choices buyers can get what they want. Whether it's single-story, two story homes. I mean, just think about this. And if you're looking for a home in Berkeley, Iraq, ridge, or San Francisco, or Nevada. I don't care where you are. You know, you know, the struggle out there, so single-story two story homes, three bedrooms, all the way up to seven bedrooms. They're eleven lakes at river islands if. Rowing kayaking, paddle boarding. He can get out on a neighborhood lake within minutes of your home, so absolutely check it out. River islands dot com. Absolutely give an shut talking a little bit more about what I was mentioning about the just the effort and Josh talked a little bit about this during the break. If minds are wandering, it's the manager's job now the Poulsen people in and refocus them if that's what's gonna happen. And you don't want the fans ever to think that no one is putting forth their best effort. There was some booing today. First time I've heard I think the whole year when belt missed the ground ball, and it was unfortunate for him. He turned his Gold Gloves turned integrate play. But after that, that one play that cost him a couple of runs. There was some booing there. Let's go to Brian Modesto, eight Cambio. Go ahead. Brian. Hey, marty. Enough to be a giants fan right now. We're hanging in there. Yeah. But, you know, think about it for a second, because, you know, obviously, we all see this, you know, in the good times when I would do the show and people would call in. We all saw what was happening. Those Linda Gummer her Vogel song, or, you know, guys getting big hits, whatever was we all saw it, and we all see this that the starting pitching his thirteenth of fourteenth fifteen teams. So we all see what's going on. But what can be done at this point, because it look it's not the end the may yet. Well, the only thing we can do is let far do his job, and that's going to take a year or two. And you know we as fans understand that. But when you see starting pitchers who don't compete when you see one pitch outs on the offense, especially the other day when the giants had the chance to win the game bust was up one pitch sealer goodbye. And then you lose thirteen when you see nobody covering second on a double play ball and bell booting a ground ball and could have thrown Adam Jones out of first today, but he didn't get an out. Okay. All right. I sent a couple of weeks ago that this team has mentally checking out of it. Now, do you think that Bruce bocce is going through the motions as a manager? Well, it's tough. No, I would never say that because these are these are professionals and obviously, this is their job. So, you know, we watch it very carefully with, with the eye of, of, of an expert, sort of watching him play. But no, he you know, he knows what he's doing, but his style may not be to get in the face of a player and maybe that has got to happen a little bit because you we are in may, and maybe that effort's got to be there. But the thing we always got to remember, because we've done this so many times together, it's one sixty two there's one hundred eleven to go. They've only played fifty one last weekend. We were thrilled because they went four out of six this week, and now, they're, they're one in five and the homestand. So who knows what the road triple being how will feel next weekend but you, you you'd like as a manager to be leaving right now, especially when you've lost five of six in the homestead, well, it's not. Just on the manager. It's on the players because I was I was too young to remember, Bob Gibson. But I was in kindergarten with Bob Gibson had the ERA record and they lowered amount and all that. I was like five years old, but I remember reading about him, how just mentally tough. He was and how angry he got on the mound, basically pitching inside and saying that plate is mine, and I'm going to intimidate you and I'm going to put the fear of God. And you and if you get comfortable at the plate, I'm going to drill you in the hip now I'm old school. Yeah. That doesn't happen anymore. You know that I know I'm old school, okay. Jeremy Affeldt had a great point on Murph and MAC the other day. All this analyst let BS you know, we somehow we got to throw it out the window little, you know, just go out and compete. Well, that's not the way. No, they have so much information Jeremy Affeldt. I don't wanna say let's see. I'm going to be diplomatic about this. Let's say he's not the sharpest tool in the drawer. Okay. And based. Ball's a little more complicated than that. And Jeremy felt is the last guy to start saying what's right. And what's wrong he had a nice career? You know, he came in through his Scuds and all that stuff. He made some very big plays. But as far as being an analyst, there being a guy to determine how a baseball game is run. That's the last guy wanna talk to with that being said, they, you know, the they got into the shift idea. And that's where this thing came up on Murph and MAC. And if the if the pitcher doesn't like where the shift is then he can move the player but the pitchers never do it. The shift is being used thirty thousand times in baseball. And so, obviously, people have ten thousand impressions of how a hitter is gonna hit. And if you know where the guy hits the ball ninety seven percent of the time you're gonna put your players there. And that's the way baseball's run today. It's up to the hitters to go the other way. But just because a guy is doesn't get the pitcher he wants to and the boss hit to an open area. Doesn't mean you throw the shift out. It's you know, throwing the baby out with the bath water kind of thing. So he's the last guy to criticize anything. Well, yeah, good curveball. Each certainly did. He and look at and he was calm to come in and not get in the fight in Philadelphia. And he came in and did a great job. You know to save that game. And of course the series. But honestly, the shift is there, there's so much information, it's used all over baseball. And it's obvious if a ball is hit with a shortstop usually is everyone goes. Oh my God. Why did that happen? Well the other ninety eight percent of the time the ball is hit over second base and shortstop is standing there. And you say gee, that would have been a hit. So the criticism of the shift is, I think way at a line way out of line because it's all over baseball. And, and these analytical people seem to know something. Well, here's what status last statement than more, call her book. Here's what I know when you have constantly hitters on the giants having three ball counts and not getting on base three. Oh three one and they make an out and they don't draw walks when you have. Let's see when you have pitchers giving up. Oh, two home runs and one hundred and nine runs with two outs given up with two strikes to out. Here's what I know this team needs to get younger and it needs to both on offense and defense. It needs to be really toughened up upstairs. Thanks marty. All right. I'm right. Brian. I appreciate whatever that means toughened up seeming, their mental approach. I guess that's that's what he means. Well, we'll see. The question is, what do you do? This is only may and I had a question about Sandovol and, and, you know, you look for the the the best story of this year, it may be Sandoval. I mean, is there a better story right now on the giants and Pablo Sandoval? And we talked about this on our podcast, mid inning relief that Carmen alley. An I do middle of the week. What do you do at Sandoval when it comes to the trade deadline? And what do you do? If let's say there's no trade of Sandovol, and, you know, the way benches are today three or four players. And maybe there's no room for, you know, the, the pinch hitter guy who can't play three or four positions really well, any still here the bring him back next year. What about how would you feel about that for Sandoval to come back next year? Eight eight km VR. We talked about it on the podcast. But I haven't talked about a really enough with you guys. So I'd like to get your opinion on that. Let's go to kitty and El cerrito kidding. Nice to have you on the show. I just saw you. I'm actually still trying to get out of the ballpark traffic to bridge. All right. I just saw it. I want to know the highlight of my game..
