A highlight from Classroom 2050: Unleashing AI, XR, Gaming
"The situation is not good, and a lot of people blame the pandemic, but it was pretty bad before the pandemic. The kids in school today are growing up into a world that's incredibly fast paced and it's complex. I think a common misconception is that technology is going to replace the pedagogy and it's not. Many parents are thinking differently about what learning looks like, learning on a continuum, different experiences. In Minecraft, they're like figuring out who they are as a human. Like if they're the person playing with their friends who's organizing the mission, maybe they're going to grow up to be a leader. It is not a clear path to Classroom 2050, so we have to be able to hold the optimism and hope and boldness. It's like the holodeck on Star Trek, and I honestly didn't think that was going to happen in my lifetime. I think that's going to happen in the next five years. I know this panel was called the Classroom of 2050, but I actually want to be very clear, it's the Classroom of 2023. It's happening right now. The year is 2023, and so much has changed in the last 50 years when it comes to technology. We now have smartphones that can fit in our pockets, we have the world's knowledge accessible to anyone with an internet connection, and even tools that summarize incredibly complex concepts in the voice of our favorite fictional characters. Now reflect on the state of the classroom, the very forum where we raise the next generation. How has that evolved during the same time period? Despite so many children actively using cutting -edge technologies like AI, XR, and gaming outside the classroom, those technologies haven't made their way in. And this episode explores why that is, especially given the learning loss we saw prior to and during COVID, and how these technologies just might help us radically upgrade the classroom of the future. This episode was actually recorded live at the Aspen Ideas Festival, which I got to attend for the first time recently, and I was joined by four guests with such unique backgrounds. The first was Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, which recently unveiled KhanMigo, an AI -powered tutor. We also had Anurupa Ganguly, she's the founder of PrismsVR, which is using VR to better teach children math and science through spatial reasoning. We also had Allison Matthews, head of Minecraft Education, who's tailoring the world's most popular game to empower and teach young people skills from coding to active citizenship. And finally, we had Romy Drucker, director of the education program at the Walton Family Foundation, who has a unique bird's eye view of the challenges and opportunities in this space, also previously serving in leadership roles at the New York City Department of Education. I really wish I grew up in an era where these technologies were at my fingertips. So let's not squander this unique opportunity.
'House of 1000 Corpses' Has It All: Long Transitions, Bad Acting and Dumb Villains
"This week, the listeners made us watch 1000 House of Corpses. So was this the first time either of you had seen this movie? I saw this in theaters. Did you? I'd seen sections of it before. I had never sat down and watched it all at once. At the time, which was 2003, in my freshman year of college, I think, they were like, this is a hardcore movie, blah, blah, blah. And it was like, Rob, it's gonna be so extreme. And then like, okay, there are two things that I dislike about Rob Zombie's style of filming. I really like 31. One, I don't like Sherry Moon or whatever. Oh, Sherry Moon Zombie. Yeah, yeah, not a fan. Oh, wait, are they married? Yeah, brother. They are now. They were not at the time that this movie was made. He put her in every movie he has ever done. Can I guess which person that is? Yeah, go for it. Is it the sort of adult daughter of the family that is like doing the evil shit, the hitchhiker? As Baby Firefly, the one with the creepy laugh? Yeah, you betcha. The one who aggressively cannot act? That's the one, I think. Yeah, okay, that makes sense. And this man, not since the movie Star Wars have I seen transitions that take so long to scene to scene. Oh, man. At one point, I thought my video had like stopped, and I was like, God damn it, I'm gonna have to refresh the... And nope, no, we were just waiting for Baby Billy to get shot in the head. I paused the movie, rewound it, and timed that scene because I was offended by its length, Paige. From the point you see him aiming the gun at Walton Goggins. Poor Baby Billy. And it just, the camera pans up, it's 29 seconds until he pulls the trigger. I had a whole sex in that time. Twice! Mikey, like that's insane. 30 seconds, more or less. But also, when he cuts, he doesn't just cut to a new scene. He's gotta do an MTV -style transition of like intro, outro. Because this movie was written and directed by a music video director, more or less. He gets better with his films, but I do feel like this... See, I think this is the best one. This is, for me, this is the most enjoyable, yeah. Well, I don't like any of this series. I like the ones not related to this. Sure, sure, sure. I didn't watch the monsters, but I liked, I really liked 31, if I remember that correctly. It's where they like hunt people. It's kinda like Rob Zombie's Running Man. That was the one that didn't get a wide release, right? Yeah. Yeah, okay, yeah. Well, cause I'm like a avant -garde kind of Rob Zombie fan. I preferred him when he was in White Zombie. I do think that... Jake said that earlier today! That's cause more human than human slaps. Like White Zombie was the jam back in the day. Was he in White Zombie? Yeah. Mikey. He was zombie of White Zombie. I don't see color. Or the absence of it. Okay, but I mean, I think the problem with this movie is that it feels to me like he's making a promotional video of a haunted house, and it's just like a dramatization of going through a haunted house. That's also something Jake said earlier today. And then Dr. Satan is the dumbest villain I've ever... Well, then Dragon Ball Z has a Mr. Satan, which like is his father, I guess. But like... Yeah, cause Mr. Satan couldn't afford to go to medical school, but made sure his son did. He worked hard. Yeah, training up Goku or whatever. And then... Dr. Satan, call me Doug or whatever. And like, the mythos doesn't really like make any fucking sense at all. And then the sequel to this movie is a direct sequel where they forget all the mythos too, which also drives me crazy. Yes, and I really dislike the sequels.
Reparations May Be Given to Blacks in California
"During his now infamous trial, January 6th defendant, Jacob chansley, AKA the Q shaman, faced some very hefty sentences. These included a 5 year prison sentence and a fine of up to $250,000. In law, such fines are levied as a form of restitution in order to compensate for costs such as damaged property, medical bills, resulting from personal injury, or even to pay an opponent's legal fees. The concept of reparations is that it is a form of punishment that can also help to repair the damage that was done by the accused. It's important to note, the government can not find you with reparations out of the blue. You have to be guilty of a crime. It's good the Chancellor wasn't ultimately hit with the full amount as a quarter of a million dollars for most people can't be raised easily. People work their entire lives and still can't save that much money. It's such a large amount that even someone as gullible as judge Lambert, a man who genuinely believed the Q shaman was somehow the breath from destroying America's democracy forever. Thought the penalty was overkill. Lately, there's been another shaman in the news, only this shaman has two ends, shaman Walton is a member of the San Francisco board of supervisors. A body which voted unanimously last Wednesday to approve a plan to give $5 million to every eligible black resident as part of the city's plan to make reparations for slavery. The plan was a way to go before final approval, like every other member of the board, shaman Walton wants to see it through. He says, quote, we have to stay focused and stay together as a community, he says. Because now it is a 100% more prevalent that we can not be separated or divided. Let's stay the course. Because a $5 million payday for me is almost here. It might be pertinent to point out that shaman Walton himself is black. And something also tells me he will be included among those deemed eligible for the payout.
'No Math Formula' to Reparations Plan for Blacks in San Francisco
"Now I have a question. What happens after they make their and work their way through, the $5 billion reparation and how long does that reparation last? Is it multi generational, much like the public housing? Where you have generations of people now living in public housing? Is that what we're talking about here? So if grandma gets $5 million and your mom gets $5 million, will you get $5 million? Are we talking about, say, a family of 5 could all of a sudden become multi millionaires? Just because of the color of their skin isn't America great. Another official supervisor shim shaman Walton told the newspaper that some San franciscans had suggested using revenue brought in by the city's cannabis business tax. Oh, that's a lovely idea. That tax, which had been suspended for years, was recommended for another suspension through 2025, but even that money would not come close to covering the cost. San Francisco reports that according to the city's budget office, the tax would only raise about $10.2 million a year. But there's more ladies and gentlemen. I'm telling you, folks, if you're black or you want to identify like yours truly LeBron stars, I would encourage you to get in your station wagon and head directly to Tesla. Get into your battery powered car and head right to San Francisco.

"walton" Discussed on Future College Parent Podcast
"In life, regardless of whether their career path is to work or their career path is to a technical school, armed forces or onto higher education from a college standpoint. Now, within that, and what we're going to talk about a little bit here today is that career exploration college preparation process. I'm going to talk about traditional college preparation, and I'm going to talk about what I feel and believe is best practice in where Walton, and hopefully several schools in our region over time will be moving toward. The traditional college preparation or even career exploration. Is beginning in middle school, there'll be some minor career exploration activities in them possibly your career fair and then as students enter in the 9th grade to go from 8th grade to 9th grade, they build what's called a four year plan. That four year plan is created with the student, the guidance counselor, and impa from the parents or at least a signature sign off from the parent. Regarding their four year educational plan and their actual freshman schedule. So they're 9th grade schedule. And then throughout the high school, there will be opportunities for career exploration, career, and by that really is having access to a database, going through what your interests are, exploring what career pathways are within that interest survey. And then potentially job fairs, career fairs of the like, and then you're moving on up through making your adjustments as you go along with your programming based on those interests and those pathway decisions. And then as you enter into your junior year, the conversation will shift if your planning to go into the college or even potentially sophomore year with PSAT work and then into your junior year with your SAT ACTs and senior year as well. And then in your senior year, there'll be the assistance from the school, counselors, regarding getting your application done. Whatever.

"walton" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"Me on Twitter at Trevor underscore lane on Instagram at Trevor lane NBA, joined by Keith Smith, follow him at Keith Smith NBA over on the Twitter machine. Keith, man, a couple of fairly negative stories. Well, I guess depending on your perspective here, let's start off with Luke Walton. Let go by the Sacramento Kings. I say depending on perspective because I have seen kings fans who are celebrating here, but Luke Walton, the first coach to lose his job this season looks like Alvin gentry is going to be the guy to take over in Sacramento. Was it time for this to happen with the kings? Was it maybe past time for this to happen? What were your thoughts on the king's making this move? Yeah, I think it should have happened in the off season. I don't like when you now you bring in a new coach. It's Alvin gentry, who's been there. He's going to be the interim head coach for the rest of the season. He's there as an assistant. He's also under contract for next year. So my guess is this is somewhat of an audition to see. Can they play well enough? They don't keep the job into next year. But I just don't like when you could have taken your off season, albeit a shorter one than usual, but still better than it was two seasons ago. You could have let the new coach install a system have some say in personnel really build this thing out and go and they hung on to Luke wall and when I think we all knew where this was headed one way or the other unless they had really come out and shocked everybody and you know, if there were 11 and 6 now, of course you wouldn't be fired, but instead they're 6 and 11, they've lost three straight, they want to say they've lost like 8 out of ten or something like that or in that range and that they're they've now fallen, it's only a game and a half. It's not anything crazy. But they're now out of the playing picture in the west. So, you know, this is a let's try to get a new coach in here with salvage this..

"How's it going brian. Great dan. it's always a pleasure to talk about cardinals baseball well last week. You were down in jupiter. And i wanna get into that in just a moment but i want to get your impressions of the milwaukee brewers after watching the game last night and seeing burns then box burger then going to devon williams. Then go into josh later. Seen a revamped lineup that i wouldn't even put Let's say Yelich your kane. Who i normally would say. Oh they had those two guys. I on my list. Not that they're not good. They're very good but man they've added to their lineup. I can see why If you follow the milwaukee brewers. You're pretty high on this team. That's a very good team. you know. i hate to throw his words back in his face. But john was as often talks about being opportunistic. And if you look at what. The brewers have done and putting together their team. That's exactly what they've done. They had a good young pitching staff already with burns and woodruff and peralta guys who've stepped forward to another level this year and then of course the bullpen guys. You you hit it on but they also went out and got some position player piece pieces that they needed not just in the off season when they picked up colt along on the rebound a tremendous edition and a big blow for the cardinals to have lost. But also then you know a couple of players Other players in in there Infield and outfield of sale garcia and and Will the dhamma. So you know. The brewers have really done a nice job of putting together a team. That seems to have meshed very well. And you know they're playing baseball. That is befitting for a team that as a a runaway lead in the division right now and of course. Brian walton is Very attuned to what's happening in the minor leagues you to spend some time down in palm beach show watching palm beach play A lot of young players and obviously where the cardinals train for spring training so a number one. I hope it wasn't too hot for you brian. I always worry about you there. But i digress Let's talk about the baseball. And what she saw and who you're able to visit with. What was the experience like for you. Yeah for me. The timing of the visit was to coincide when palm beach was home so that i could also see the florida complex league cardinals during the day. And that's the what used to be the gulf coast league and the cardinals played things differently this year with their draft class. They brought all the players in. There's twenty four players between the the players who were drafted in the non drafted free agents. That were signed. They brought them all into jupiter and they assess their of physical status after playing wherever they played in spring. Whether it'd be high school or college and the position players were the first to go out. And all of those with the exception of joshua by the second rounder All went to palm beach and in palm beach. It's this weird season. Where the beginning of the year they had the backlog of guys who were drafted last year. The jordan walkers and mason winds who were getting their first professional action They had a guy from twenty nineteen. Who was getting his for section. Tommy g outfielder who had been hurt the previous year so they had a lot of guys that were getting their feet on the ground but did well and and moved on. there's half a dozen hitters. Todd lot caprine eac others who who move forward from palm beach and you sort of had this big hole in their offense and they were filled then by players who were drafted this year In twenty twenty..

"Known. He came up once had a brief trial on the bullpen. Into sent back down and all the folks has been oviedo in what i is kind of the next guy's but if you look recently on hell reknown who's a top. Ten prospect of borderline top can prospect in the system has pitched pretty well. Out of the rotation for memphis. And you know we don't know i mean you you think with with flaherty and michael's soon return. Maybe kim to return maybe even hudson to return. They won't need as many reinforcements for memphis. Traffic will be kind of the other way on. The i fifty five show but i know run those a guy who may be pitching himself back into getting another chance with saint louis. It'd be interesting to see what happens. Once the rosters are expanded. So it's not like for fans just to kind of get reacquainted with september. It's not like you have all the forty men guys that have a chance to come up. It's different now in twenty. Twenty one and brian. Maybe we can get into that. And maybe what's think about some candidates that are getting healthier in the minor leagues. That might be able to help this club in september. Yeah you're right. Down the rules have changed substantially and this was a this was a rub. You know the whole the whole movement to shorten games to you know have them be more interesting for fans and you know in september when teams to bring up conceivably their entire forty man roster if they wanted to what that man is. You know one inning. One thirty eating relievers you know three three relievers for any kind of thing and long gains and boring and you got guys. Potentially impacting playoff racists. Who were with teams all year so so make a long story short. They cut back and said teams can only add two additional players in september. And so you know it won't be this big influx of young players coming up for the first time but in addition to the pictures that we talked about There's of course the relievers that are on the forty man that would be easy to add if needed fernandez is an l. edges and went leaves that we've seen kind of back and forth but also there's a guy who has kind been forgotten about this year in austin dean who's a good hitting outfielder injured his hamate bone earlier in the year for memphis and hadn't heard much from him. Austin dean just was activated down here in palm. Beach played last night for the pump for the S- cardinals in a rehab stint. And if austin dean can get healthy you know..

Essentially it is life if.

"You know there's a lot to talk about. Not only players who are in the system primarily offensive players stepping up but also now we have of course the new draft class of twenty twenty one none of whom have taken the field yet as a cardinal to try to figure out where they might be interleaved into the prospect rankings as we assess you know which players may have the best chance of contributing at saint louis someday just a general question about the draft. What are you hearing about the cardinals draft as you evaluated and others that start to really break this thing down and they're close to signing all their picks but what have you heard a general aspect about the cardinals draft this year all the cardinals draft a lot of college pitchers and they need pitching in the minor league system. You know as we've talked about a lot this year. The pitching whether you go from memphis all the way down to palm beach as not been good in so they're restocking with college guys who can hopefully contribute fairly quickly but they also made A handful of very Selective high school picks Two of whom they already have on board Joshua says the outfielder from massachusetts. Who has a very interesting upside profile. You know guys like guys who were talking about like dylan carlson and all norman. A few years ago. So the the The cardinals and then they just of course signed seventh rounder. A colorado high school pitcher alec willis six six already as a teenager who has against a very interesting potential so the cardinals save some money on some of their other picks so they could convince some of these high schoolers to to forego college in the organization and as you said you know of the twenty one picks it looks like a pretty good shot of getting them all in house by the deadline. Which is next sunday. The first of august. Let's talk a little bit about your top fifty prospects..

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point.

But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies.

The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

But the thing I don't understand about the study here is does that mean you have to get up earlier and earlier every single day an hour earlier to tonight. By the end of the week. You're you're going to bed? How could we get up any earlier? Six p.m., and you're waking up. What at one am, because I look, you know, I'm not the happiest guy in the world.

Well, you know, some people might be interested in this. Somebody if you're easily offended. Don't watch it if you're not easily offended, I mean, Oh, yeah. Yeah, I don't like this myself. It's not that I enjoy watching people act that way. I just think it's interesting, you know, Kick fights one thing but watching a gang of one race of people getting up on a single member of another race. He's black, white or Rennie. Other color? Yeah, that they just don't sit right with me. Yeah. Why doesn't this news story bother people as much as if it were that they were the opposite little blonde lady Little White lady. She's a mom. She's a tiny, anybody little thing. And where is this Georgia and she's a very small, petite woman. Very large woman whose skin color is not important. Just absolutely pummeling her in the little Caesars pizza. Just that's what I wanted to know when I say. Where was this, right? Yeah, it was a chuck e cheese but little Caesars. Pretty much the same. It is similar. Yeah. Andre, the other people standing around. It's almost like they Their position on this isn't to stop them. They're helping the lady whose skin with some people in a recording it obviously because there's a video and in the video, you can see other people videoing it. And then there's a couple of people just to enjoying it like a spectator sport. So they pour be a woman gets dragged out into the street where she gets basically gets curb stomped. Is that what you call? Yeah. Now how sidewalk stops. How long did that woman beat up on that other woman now inside the store, she beat on her for a good 2030 seconds, then drug her by the hair outside, then beat on her another 20 seconds or so and then. Stomped her head into the concrete after that, how much of that? But when? When do you think that could have stopped? Because I've heard after about the 1st 15 punches. You you, you should say Okay, well, she's learned her lesson. I got that out of my system. Let's move on. It felt like it went on for a long time. But the video's only about a minute long But now imagine getting that man about that was you for a minute, though, on solid minutes of getting punched in the face horrible Now the good news is the woman that dead it's been arrested. There's only 1/9 of the time that that cop knelt on George for his neck. Okay, Okay, but that's unrelated. Yeah. Unrelated. Nothing to do with this, Mr Rohit. All that doesn't make it. Okay. The fact that something bad happened to George Floyd doesn't make it okay for this woman to violently assault a little tiny, little petite mom, But I should point out that b E T is still running programs about George Floyd. You know, Ever since Tuesday night on whatever the anniversary last night, they have some old and then tonight they don't Have some mope so busy, But that's not the point. That's not the point. But I have questions about that. But did you know if you if you're beating someone and you dragged them out into the street you've now committed kidnapping. I did not know that. That's one of the things this woman's getting charged with. Because of the video, the white woman or the black woman. The White woman's not being charged with anything, okay, because her crime was being white and a little beaten at a little Caesars, where you're not supposed to be a white lady. Apparently don't know You're the only white person in there. She wasp. Yeah, and the other people in the The other people in the restaurant seemed to help the woman do it. I don't get what she's mad about the woman. Well, yeah, We don't know what started it. I'm sure white privilege jumped out. You know, maybe the little white kid, you know, one Some tickets and on on a video game or something, And, you know, probably shoved probably mean too, Though the black Children as it's happening, a little girl runs up. It tries to help her mom and someone comes up and pulls the kid away. Little black girl. Yeah, exactly. She wanted to get in on the fight, too. I guess so. Yeah. Parenting this sword. And then as all this is happening, you've got to remember the other lady. The white lady. Her kids were there to there. We see her kid in a video anywhere as she's getting a beating. She keeps asking where her baby is her child. I hate that. You know, it's unbelievable. Anyway. You know if that was, uh, that was me. And I know yeah. What if it was, uh let's say that was Priceline. It was getting ah, stomped out of her. When this is all said and done, Wouldn't you go visit that woman in jail? Um, you did love to be on the other side of the glass and just fuck your freedom in front of her. Ah, you have a visitor. Remember the woman that you you beating? Stopped and drilled out and kidnapped and stuff? Apparently the woman that did the attacking his name is Brittney. I would have expected the victim. Maybe the blonde was Britney to know the blonde's name was something else that a bit ironic of to Britney started fighting each other, and they didn't know they were both named Britney. And then halfway through the fight, they realized they had, and they go. Oh, my name is Brittney, too. And then they home and they hug. Yeah, on everybody's happy it was Emily was the victim. Britney was gonna happen. Yeah, well, yeah, That's right. That's today's episode of people who can't act right? Mr. Rose, Right? B E T has the George Boyd special of the night tonight. Justice now, the way forward So you won't want to miss that. I do wonder when somebody like this gets violently attacked like that. Do you think part of the reason why they're doing it is because of what happened to George Boyd. Probably. Yeah. Tensions are high. Yeah. I mean, it's bad out there. Yeah, people are worked up. It's hard to imagine right now in America, watching two people of two opposite race is just go at it like that. As horrible and not think that underneath it all beneath the surface of everything. There's a little bit of Ah, political difference happening. Oh, yeah, you know, they say they're fighting over crazy, Brad, or you know what the same boyfriend or whatever, but really, That's not what that's about. Crazy. What your it didn't little Caesars used to have crazy bread. Oh, yeah Beach. May I just go for pizza They don't have. I don't need to pizza. Little Cesar's not my favorite pizza, but I like it, but I wasn't allowed to eat that as a kid. My mom wouldn't let us eat anything That was fake Italian. Oh, yeah. Yeah. She was a little touchy about that. Understand? We weren't allowed to have little Caesars. No dominoes. No Pizza Hut, No Olive garden. We had Sergio's pizza or nothing else. That was the only thing we were allowed to have. Which was delicious Pizza. My mom was actually giving us better pizza on pizza night. We didn't know that right? You know, we will have the kid and appreciate it. What? We want to go to little Caesars. They have toys, did you? Oliver? Did your mom ever make you'll dessert? Pizza? No. What was just dessert Pizza. You never had like chocolate chip pizza at places like Little Caesars and and the mother buffet type pizza places at the end of the line. Way down at the you know, after you get all the other, you know you had all the different choices you wanted. You wanted the pepperoni. You wanted the supreme or whatever you got, then way down at the end of the line. There's the dessert pizza. They have cinnamon sugar. It was like apple Poppy. So, but who wanted apples? You just wanted to send him and sugar. They had chocolate chip pizza. That was the reason to go right there. What's that? Pizzeria CC's pizza? Is that what it's called? It's like a pizza affair would not have been what it where I was. It's Yeah, I think they have dessert pizza there. The thing about CC's pizzas. It's not good. I'm actually getting nauseous. Just thinking about it. You get a lot of it for five bucks. You get unlimited access to a pizza buffet. And and once you have unlimited access You're gonna go get the dessert beach.

Good morning how are you good morning. Dan it's nice to see the cardinals. Come back with a win last night after that series in san diego. Isn't it man that was tough to watch that series. Was what exactly. I think we've all talked about that. Baseball needs to get away from. They had twenty six walks in the series the most since nineteen hundred so maybe the the right formula to get back on track is welcome the pittsburgh pirates to town. Yeah there's no doubt about it and let's face. it goes a good team but they were slowed by colin. They missed you know. We're missing a number of their star players and you know it was the first opportunity for the cardinals to get revenge forgetting balanced from the postseason and unfortunately the pitching just couldn't find the confined the strike zone and as much as mike show didn't want the media to continue the narrative. The facts are the facts. And i think a president of baseball ops john was they lack was was much more candid about it Before the game yesterday when he said you know we simply have to throw strikes. Stop the locks absolutely John gant did that last night. Only allowed one walk. That was a john. Gant that we see come out of the bullpen and that might be israel sooner rather than later. We don't know You know. Mike sheltered indicate that they would go to a six man rotation still with a lot of games coming up potentially but in the big picture. I thought john game pitch very well last night. You know. I think it was one of his best stars of the year. And as you mentioned gantt has somehow managed to avoid getting hit with a big innings despite allowing way way too many baserunners and i just always kind of felt like the other shoes. Drop at some point but you know to his credit. What maybe his last gartner rotation for a while Was a very very positive on a win that the cardinals really really needed. And of course what you're referring to is that off. Miles michael is in carlos. Martinez look to be on track to return to the team. Perhaps as soon as this weekend so when they get into this after thursday off they get into this long stretch consecutive games again They could insert both those in the rotation and one would think that john gant might be the one to return to the pen at that time. Correct me if i'm wrong but in terms of a minor league outfielder scott hearst. He is on the injured list. Is.

L Yeah. You go ahead and take that blame. All right. One reason why we did not do a show yesterday, although technically we were going to be off anyway. I think I experienced pretty violent food poisoning. Because I ate bugs. You intentionally ate bugs. All right, So the thing's oldest out of food. No, no, no.

No. Okay, well, then it's just you and your weak constitution, I suppose. But the person that I ate bugs with was previously on the TV show Survivor. Not that we know who that is. So this so he or she she maybe has a tolerance for bugs. I don't know. Maybe. So. What kind of bugs? Did they feed you to be fair? It's possible that eating the bugs didn't make me sick. I don't know, but I did. Uh, ant eggs, you red caviar before I have this is like that. But with ants Yeah, probably not like caviar. Well, that's how they described it on and then they put it in a little taco. And in it, and it came with a side of grasshopper that again. This was a well known chef at a expense that you were willing to pay a James Beard award winning chef and nobody else got sick. But you Well, it was a Yeah, there was only one other person and to be fair. She didn't eat as much as I do. What did you mix it with for you Margaritas? Do you think that was? What did it She had? What? You had the right. Yeah, but just in much smaller amounts, right? You overdid it on ant eggs. I can eat twice as much as my wife. I mean, I easily three times as much. It wouldn't even be a question. So shall take tiny nibbles of each thing and go. Oh, that was good. That's cute. And then I'll finish her place. Sure. In all the years of the story, we went to Ah, really Great Taco Restaurant downtown Houston. James Beard Award Winning show kind of the famous guy right after we went to go check out the new Doctor Seuss exhibit. Oh, yes. The immersive suits. Yes. So we were already our brains were already filled with hate mongering and racism and naturally and all that that entails. So right there is this great Mexican restaurant award winning chef and we go in and we tell the guys there anything interesting on the menu and the sky leans and he goes, Oh, hole. We have some. We have some off menu items so glad you asked. And so he tells us about the ant eggs and I look at my wife and she goes, I would try it. Was, like, all right, Well, I'm not, you know. Well, now you have to. Yeah, yeah, A woman wants to do it. I have to do it. So s so he brings it out, and it was not bad, and it really wasn't until about a day later. Then it hit me. And then I just I won't describe what took place after that. Yes, Thank you, Please. But you've all had violent indigestion. I've got good news for you. Yes. Look what I brought Everybody I brought. I brought something for from the from the house yesterday. Is that a pizza? It's a half a pizza with my place called Joe's Italian. I said, you know. Kenny and Steve.

I half of us supreme pizza with extra onions on it. And I bet you guys can't wait to tear into it. You know, Billy had any other day. Kenny ate bugs. I would have been what?

This is The one day I bring it, and you don't want it. Well, it looks good too, But I don't know if I had bugs my stomach. I was thinking I might have saltine crackers for breakfast. But you just need to box. Yeah, maybe just the cardboard probably be good for you got enough grease and olive oil on it. And a lot of our listeners in the Houston area. Know Joe's Italian pretty much right there in that corner to 90 and six where you make that turn either going From 60 to 90 year to 92 6 by Jersey villages ever that way further, is it all the way up to where you hang a right and go north up the and him? Okay. All right. I told the way to Grimes can t you see? And it's on the way home. Okay, so yeah. Joe's went there last night, You know, Believe it or not. We ordered such a big pizza that me and pray Lynne couldn't even finish it. I can't believe that it did Pray, Lenny bugs. What's wrong with the bugs? Now? She, uh, I don't know. Maybe she's working on her figure, his best friend. He never had a meal She couldn't finish. I guess, you know. Damn good question. Remember that one time years ago, she had some kind of infection or sickness or something, and the doctor gave her some pills. And I asked about three weeks later. I said them pills don't seem to be working for you. And how many have you taken? She said. None. None. I said, Well, why do you take Hershey goes well says right here on the box take on an empty stomach con on never had one. No, you gotta That's not what that means, but pretty stomach. Well, that's all right. Pray, Lean's gonna do what pray Leon's gonna do. You can't tell her how to live her life. Billions says this is a tragedy. I may have to eat this pizza. Myself. Yeah, well, well, it will enjoy watching you eat it. Mm. Any. Is there any way we could get a pizza for tomorrow? Me to shake some ants on it or something for you? Maybe you'll scarf it up. Then the worst thing about me Getting food poisoning is I still love food so much that there's a part of me that wants that pizza. But I know what's gonna happen. If I try you, you probably will regret it. Have you lost any weight? No. I said something to market about that yesterday was lost a couple of pounds. Sure, but I lost a few Pounds. You're not having eaten for a company yesterday. Yesterday I had cashews and blueberries things. They're things that are easy to eat when you don't feel good. How about how do you feel about chicken brains? Probably. Wouldn't you chicken? I hope me bringing this up doesn't make you nauseous. Do chickens even have brains as well? As a matter of fact, they do. You know the trick is if you live to be 100 The media is going to come pester you about how did you do it? Yeah. What's the secret? There's 100 and 11 year old man in Australia. Thank you just had a birthday. And they said he's the oldest guy in Australia, and they asked him his secret. You know how you do that Kicking brains? Chicken, Brace said. He likes to eat them chicken brains, and he said, You know, chickens got ahead on inside that head. There's that little brain if one bite this little bitty thing, But one bite and, he says, swears it is tasty. Bet you'd like to slurp on up when you're probably eat it right out of the little sculpture like oysters on the shell. You know, there's a part of me that's curious. I'll admit that Have you ever heard the I've always wondered, is in an urban myth that in China, the monkey brain, I've seen it on Indiana Jones. That's right. It wasn't Indiana jail. They took a spoon and just pop the top of that skull off. Had the monkey face still looking at you and everything, would you do it? No, I wouldn't do that. What if they told you it was delicious? I wouldn't do that. What if they told you it tasted like brisket with Mac and cheese would have to give that after I wouldn't have to try. That's all you have to do is compare it to simple whenever people do not have to be hungry. Yeah. If you're hungry, you're hungry. Whenever people are trying to convince you to eat something weird, they always tell you it tastes like chicken. Yeah. You know, I've had chicken. I don't I just eat chicken. Exactly chickens, but chicken brains, But that's a little taste of your. How do you know if it's so tasty? Why don't Cajuns Edith. That's a good question. If it's if you like him a squirrel brains. Is there anything that Cajuns won't eat? And if there is not really unless it puts up a hell of a fight now, and even then, Cajuns are pretty good at trapping and shooting stuff. You know, Uh, I know there's a lot of Tragedy after in the world. You know what?.
The Bourne Identity (2002)
"Hey everybody welcome to another prestige podcasts. Where we perhaps are stretching the definition of prestige I think so. I think this is a prestigious action film anyway. The bourne identity.

After this paul greengrass over and helmed the rest of the borne trilogy is based on a screenplay written by tony gilroy who you might recognize as the screenwriter of rogue. One devil's advocate. Literally every jason bourne film also wrote and directed michael clayton and william blake. Herron who. I don't even know why his credit for this like only got one other movie credits he's credit created as the co writer. So i guess he did stuff here. He came into some rewrites. Because a studio like lots of this is a. I had no idea. This is such a troubled film making process. They're much butting heads. We'll we'll get to that. I'm sure is based on the bourne identity by one robert ludlum. If you're a. Tom clancy fan. You know. absolute thought robert ludlum is if you're a kid growing up in eighties.

Twitter, Facebook big goal. Bengal Tiger was roaming the neighborhood on but pretty nice neighborhood fairly close to town. I mean, it's west of Houston. Out around Memorial and Highway six. If you're familiar with that area real close to a giant park named after George W. Bush, Yeah, care for that, anyway. A Bengal tiger was lounging and someone's front yard kind of prowling up and down the street. People were pretty surprised to see a tiger. Okay, So it sounds like some guy had the tiger living in his house. Yeah, and before he came out and realized the tiger was out of the house. His neighbor came out with a gun. Yeah. Waller County deputy who lives in the neighborhood pulled out his service weapon. Now the tiger doesn't see that as a command to stop. The tiger doesn't know you pulled a gun on it right? Exactly.

"Public is speaking out about the presence of police officers in D C. Public schools and district leaders are listening. D. C.

Final Four Weekend: How Did UCLA Make It In?
"Make you are is. You are ears on the ground for this final four and it is a special one tomorrow night. Because baylor's taking on houston and then undefeated gonzaga is playing this unlikely cinderella. Ucla and i feel the need to start with ucla. Myron because i don't think anyone outside of bill walton saw any of this coming. I don't think anybody's saw them knocking off. A one seed in michigan bell. Takes the basketball dickinson looking choirs. An adviser turns players at three for the good off. The back of the ramp and ucla has water from i. Four to the final four for the nineteen taught school history the first since two thousand eight. The bruins aren't going off final four. Ucla's own players are using words like surreal unreal. When they're asked to describe what this ride to the final four has been like. So how did ucla pull all of this out of the anyone knows and it's funny because a lot of people are saying. Hey you should have believed in the pac twelve. But i demanded all pac twelve fans. Show me they're brackets so we can see if they even believed in the past well. Ucla came out of nowhere and just to beat a team like michigan. That was legitimately a great team. That people thought might be able to some trouble and here. They are just winning game after game. I mean if you want to sum up the chaos of the entire twenty twenty twenty twenty one season. It's ucla in the final four right now after. Not even being the best team in the pack twelve so they make it from the first four to the final four. The second team since vcu to do that. When i saw them beat michigan.

Tape that: Dutch inventor of audio cassette dies at age 94
"Let's jump into tech fan here since you know we. We just mentioned about recording stuff off the right. Yeah yeah kinda sad news and we're also doing this as part of our wookey. Trolling thing but I saw this i. I'm i'm kinda glad. I i saw you know five seconds while i was on a lunch break looking on my phone. I saw and i thought. Oh that'd be something we're talking about so go ahead. What well this is This is the guy who invented tightly. Walton's died at the ripe old age of ninety four. Yeah a law people forget nowadays that philips the dutch company invented this stuff named ventured the compaq says as being the lead on the compact disc. It's funny his goal. I'm looking at the los angeles times. Obituary that you linked his goal is making tapes and their players. Far more portable and easier to use because. Look the cassette. Tape wasn't the beginning of Recording to a magnetic tape they had real to reel that that was invented and twenty three And they had a in recording studios in radio. Stations is early as the thirties and it was very complex stuff to use. This guy took that basic concept and although the tapes were a little different And he wanted he had. He carried a block of wood in his pocket and the goal was to have the player and a tape. Take up about same amount of space and you can't really argue with his success And think about you know he. He basically created an entire industry from his invention. So while we talk about this guy. Let's talk about the cassette tape as well. Because it's our wikipedia. Wiki trolling Commonly called the tape cassette cassette tape audio cassette or simply tape or cassette. It would to me. It was always those were always interchangeable. Do you got you got a blink tape you gotta cassatt you got you and you had really two kinds you had the prerecorded cassette which was records like. We were talking about earlier albums Do you remember the single cassettes. It would be one song young. Rip off to me. I think i had a couple of days. Oh everybody hype blank tape. Yeah it was just people people. Some people want to listen to singles call Yeah there's two things that conduct strikes strikes me about except tape. First of all is the miniaturization they something that was expensive and very fiddly a bake. There's something really was only yes. They're professionals or for very rich people. Yeah and they miniaturized it to something that the allowed portability and transform them the way we listen to music but the second thing for me. I you know anybody who's ever use cassette tapes now the every now and again there. We go wrong with tangled up in your player and it used to be the you know if a tangled up. Somebody's car you wonder. If sometimes you just wander around on the street or in accomplish something you need to see. The massive tangle of time resources obviously yanked out they call yanked till the bits that the come off and then and the end it was broken at that point and then just come thrown on the street when people to listenable A new see those long around but generally they were absolutely you know they were pretty reliable. Not particularly high quality but pretty reliable. And i think the reliability they built into that platform it really astonishes me more than anything else because it was completely mechanical and yet You ninety five percent the time. It was relatively flawlessly. It was introduced in september nineteen sixty. Three came in two forms already recorded content in prerecord content. Remember when you found out that you could stick a piece of paper or something in the little hole at the top and record over. A prerecorded tape mess right. Yeah that little tab out so you could. Nobody could record over that. That six you'd make you'd make a mix tape for someone. You had a bus. That little thing screwing up my mix tape. Technology was originally designed for dictation machines but improvements of fidelity led to the compact cassette to supplement the stereo eight track cartridge in reel to reel tape recording in most non-professional applications
"walton" Discussed on Scoops with Danny Mac
"Brian walden Spring training is in full swing. The intake is gone relatively well across major league baseball. Certainly with the saint louis cardinals. Everybody's in camp good morning to you and we got baseball talk about. It's a good thing absolutely and the zooms or fired up every day from jupiter so those of us. Who aren't there right now. Get a chance to ask our questions and participate in discussion. So it's you know it's very much starting very much. Like twenty twenty was in that there are significant limitations in terms of what the media can do and what fans will be able to do but the good news is. There will be fans in the ballpark. This spring. At roger dean. And that's that's wonderful for the first game. Starts this coming sunday this sunday. You can see that game on fox sports midwest the national rankings of the prospects across major league baseball have come out Let's start with that because you focus so much of your time on the minor leagues what did you think about some of these national rankings. And where some of the players are. Well i find. It very illustrative dan. Because i personally. I focused on the cardinals and there's almost three hundred players to focus on their. So that's enough. I can't watch the other twenty nine organizations across the game at the level. You need to rank prospect. So you know when baseball america in baseball prospectus and the lettuce and then we'll be pipeline. Espn all the others. you know. Put up her national top. One hundred prospects. I i really take a look and see what others are saying about the cardinals prospects. And at the top end as one would expect justin. Carlson is the top cardinals. Prospect according to everyone and depending on who the raider is. He's either in the top ten in terms of baseball america and locked the athletic or in the top twenty on all of the other National ranking system. So you know it's pretty clear that while doing carson was underrated prospect early on in his career for first rounder. You know everybody's pretty much figured out that you know. He's he's a legitimate talent and this is obviously going to be his last year on the prospectless. There's no doubt about that. Yeah and and in terms of the catching area. I want to get into harare. Were did you see where some of these national prospects or national rankings. Put that top prospect one of the best for the cardinals. The catcher herrera. Yeah it's really interesting game because you know everybody pretty much had carlson laboratory gorman and we can talk a little bit about how the different places but yvonne herrera has made his debut on three different national top one hundred lists and he's in the sixty eight to seventy range. Sixty five to seventy five range on Keith laws list at the f. As well as espn and fan graphs. And that's that's quite a tip tip of the cap for young man who still hasn't had any official action above high a. And you know the way things are looking out organizationally and the way the players are camp. It looks like herrera's gonna get a chance to be The catcher at aaa memphis to start the season. So you know he if he performs well and continue to grow grow their you know. He could certainly be in the picture for next season and he was added to the forty man roster over the winter for we'll five protection so that won't be inhibitor. Win it's determined that There's time for the call him up but so so even harare's getting attention as a top one hundred prospect..
The Tao of Bill Walton
"All right. So chris from your conversation with him and from watching him as a broadcaster over the years. How would you say bill. Walton has evolved from my selfish perspective. He's evolved to be more interesting. I remember watching those. Mba on nbc games with bill walton and marv albert as a kid. Bill was nothing compared to what he is now. Penetration jumpers in transition whereas the defensive resistant for minnesota walton. Was the guy in a suit and tie on nbc for several years. Kevin garnett is thirty six in the nba. Free throw attempts. That's not good enough now. He's the when there isn't a pandemic going on. He's showing up at basketball games in grateful dead shirts and he's embraced everything that he probably had to bury for a very long time. Congo line coming from our free gave receptionist vicky driving that train leading the haredi onto the court. This was so much fun. We've done to do a really good job all the time. But he wants to do his way and his way is to have fun key. Eight a birthday candle. That was let off of a cupcake. He just swallowed the flame home during broadcast. Take a bite out of it. While it's lit ostade about the face for a lot of viewers. They want the nuts and bolts of a pick and roll offense or how you trap bill. Walton doesn't offer much of that bill walton wants to find a correlation between a slam. Dunk and the majesty of the grand canyon. He wants to see a perfect rotation for an open corner. Three and somehow relate that to a grateful dead concert imagination. It's not work. It's taking an idea of building a now synchronicity. What did you learn how to ucla. Or is that prior to your though. I learned that at my i did and i think the most fascinating part of this whole thing to me is that there are subsets of the internet. That either eight bill love. Bill are want to know what he's on and what he's on his life.
Refounder: The Essential Longevity Plan for Every Small Business
"What we've all heard the term founder and many of us our founders of small businesses. But what is a re founder and can you be one of them. Help us with that. Is patrick colletti. Who's a leadership at organizational cultural expert champion for founders and author of the upcoming leadership leadership. Book rebounder patrick. Welcome to the show. Thank you invite me here so been surviving during this pandemic. We've been making lots shifts Founder should you know finding the opportunities and being candid and honest about what needs to change. And as emily it's been It's been terrific so we all know. When a founder isn't a lot of us are founders. What's a refunder. Well refound herships the same john as founders though is expressed in different ways so let founders visa visionaries they take a different approach But they're the turnaround artists. These men and women who reimagine existing but broken structures and aimed to improve them. So i like to think of them. In a way as very practical magicians taking the raw materials of the company a culture or even life and transforming them into something more meaningful so put more simply be founders used their magic to create something better from something broken and founders typically start and founders two to draw a parallel but a difference they really start with nothing a create something so refunders. Really take something that's broken and make it better so our refound. There's always someone from the outside or kenny founder. become a refunder or they can't because as they say you can't read the label when you're inside the jar. I absolutely believe that people can change. So i would say while it is not that typical that founders then become a founder. I say they are where when given the right stimulus whether it's a crisis Something with their business with their family. Something dramatic happens in other book point to the fact that he to change that they change in history shown that that absolutely can happen so give us give us some examples of history where outside persons coming been rebounder and actually found gold in something that perhaps the founder had given up on shirt yet. This is it's actually quite common. You know there's a. There's a life cycle for those enterprises. That are fortunate enough to grow passed. A few million dollars inevitably after a few years. Some form of entropy occurs and so whether it's the founder that gets them stimulus that recognizes something needs to change more likely somebody within the business typically visit trigger now as you know with small businesses Most of them don't crush that two three four five our they do the need for change. Change die becomes pretty critical and so virtually any business today. That is over. Ten million dollars in revenue has had to make some pivots that all would point to having founder in the business. Now that may be a middle manager. That's pointed out that the product line needs to change that could be a co founder Or it may be found as well. Yeah it's interesting because you see very few businesses. They're able to go from nothing to billions of dollars. I mean the michael dell's of the world. The bill gates the world's although bill gates had partners to typically the skills that you need to actually get something started are not the same skills to grow it past at least in my case past ten million dollars it also indicates that there are not a lot of one companies right and so while you know what what gets you to. The party isn't the thing that will necessarily keep you there. It speaks to the fact that you know you may be one trick Business and you may have one. Particular product speaks to an audience. But that doesn't necessarily create a real thriving. Enterprise that's just a product you know. It's it's interesting to me because what you're saying is the refounded necessarily a partner or owner in the business. It's just some kind of person that works with you. That's a catalyst absolutely so founder doesn't need to be an owner in the business. In fact when. I speak to college students or young professionals one of my encouragements to them is every employer wants this. Every employer may not provide a fertile ground for but once they once you share on these your founder characteristics. They want you there. You're gonna be the future of the business and there's go ahead. Yeah there's really four steps in so one could argue. There's four kinds of founders instead of behavioral models that are that are linked to this. But i think the easiest way to think about it is every founder follows four typical patterns in the first one is a refunder. Isn't afraid to take silver. Look at hard reality and when you think about those folks that are on the front lines and maybe do in hand to hand combat in sales part of that has to do with ignoring problems sometimes and ignoring the knows that you get to keep going another day and so that may not fit well with somebody who is focused and taking a sober look at a hard reality. And that's not. Take a shot at salespeople at all Salespeople are very important. i'm a salesperson. We all need to sell. We're going to be successful but that particular behavior taking a sober look at hard realities. Takes a very special kind of person in personality. The second step is identifying. What's broken and you think about that. In terms of your strength finders. The level of conscientiousness that takes imprecision to find what's actually broken. And then to to take a phrase from the book which is taken from william faulkner to kill your darlings because candidly most of us to have too many options and it's difficult to close doors and so if you can be wise enough to kill your darlings and selectively focus then you go to the third step of of being founder. And that's where you imagine a davis in bold new possibilities and even if those possibilities seem remote it just for a moment juxtaposed that with step one which is not being afraid to take a sober. Look hard realities those people in particular. Think about your conscious. Cfo or an accountant that may fit into that category than imagining audacious bold new possibilities. And so that's the third step and then the fourth is refunders spring to action and the key here is execution and so we all of her execution is key. But there's there's an important asterik here. And that is that they have to execute by creating better realities for people those in their communities in the world large because just executing to get it done that may work for a short period of time. But unless there's a just cause a real purpose that re founding effort walton fail in. I don't really want to sell short. How difficult this is really for. A founder because founders are used to doing it themselves right so have you found that founders may not want to refound your because they say i can do it. I can turn around or they don't wanna work with someone because they don't want to miss something's wrong absolutely image part of the human condition and so therefore it's just a reflection of the organizations institutions that we run whether they're not for profits for profits. So yes i mean i think this is part of the the human condition and and really i think the bigger question is how large of an impact do you wanna have. Do you want to have a comfortable life with a very small business. That teeters on the edge or do you want to run. The kind of enterprise that has global impact or create flourishing for hundreds of thousands of people. We're talking with patrick colletti. He's the author. A book called founder. I think it's difficult for a lot of founders. Patrick because there's so much ego tied up in their business that change is difficult. I'm running my next book. Is called change masters and how hard it is for people to actually change. Unless they're in incredible pain and they have no choice. I'd found that sometimes the best opportunities arise during a moment of crisis and it might be a giant burden on your heart broken relationship or just a corporate hot mess. But it's in those moments that i think you can trigger a great refounding
