J.J. Watt agrees to two-year contract with Arizona Cardinals
"To begin right away with JJ want with with Judy here? Is that what you wanted to go? But it didn't go the way you thought I'm his little surprised He got 15.5 million And little surprised it was Arizona who, after all we'd heard was not one of the teams that was high on his list. Yeah, that came out of my field to me. The Arizona part of it. I wasn't sure how much he was going to get. I thought he would get paid pretty well, because I assumed that there would be multiple teams in it, and that would drive the price up. But I was certainly surprised it and being Arizona because, as you said, none of us heard, Arizona sort of whispered in the last few weeks. I kind of like it. Look, you know, I think for people who thought well, he's going to go to a place that has a good chance of winning a Super Bowl next year. This is maybe not what you expected. But you know, you'll have Chandler Jones on the other side that will draw some attention away. I go back to something our good friend John McClane from the Houston Chronicle said on the NFL Network yesterday, Right after JJ announced his selection, he made the point that he came back after his back injury and all of that, and had 16. Fax in a season when he had you, Debbie and Clowney opposite him to draw some attention from lockers, and he's gonna have that again in Arizona. I think that'll that'll work well for him, and also, I think it's clear it had run its course in Houston for him. His frustration this season was obvious when he walked off the field with Shawn Watson at the end of the season and said, I'm sorry we wasted one of your years. I thought that probably give us a pretty good insight into what change A walk was thinking all season long that a whole year's been wasted. And so I think he might have sort of the Tom Brady experience. Maybe not winning the Super Bowl, but where he'll be refreshed and revitalized and you know, and we'll play well there. I wonder,

I was something in first grade and i think it was about a bird and my dad helped me practices into it for talent. Show or my very catholics old There was always a good talent shone catholic schools. And was there. Anyone who said who. This girl hasn't my seventh grade teacher was like you're really good writer and i was like that's nice and my mom and dad told me i have to be an attorney or doctor and then high school. I had some really great teachers who were like. This is what you should do. This is really really good. I thought about it from they're like well. Maybe it's something. nba can do this. I could be a writer writers. I love Invented just kind of unfolded. When i got to college And there were so many people that were so supportive of my writing and poetry and just teaching me how to be in that space En- just happened to what i wanted to say authentically in kind of tune out. What a lot of the other influences are other writers. I think growing up in the nineties. I wanted to talk about identity a lot. I mean it wasn't until the late nineties until we even had something in the census that allowed you to be biracial. So i would always get the questions what are you. What are you You know just very rude. Comments often feeling not enough of one of the other affiliate black enough not mexican enough. So i wrote about my identity and how i felt. Your dad is black. His new orleans. Your mom born in mexico immigrated here when she was fifteen had it those cultures. How were they playing out at home. It's lovely. I love my kids. Identify appalachian in that that even have that term to identify with my oldest daughter who is brown and we talk about how we are mirror images of each other's experience where i fought a lot to inform people of my identity as a black woman. She does the opposite to inform people of dot and so we talk about that a lot and she really pushes me to see how the world sees me had well. She's her an how they see her as black. I and how they typically see as the enough i in. What does that mean about how we move in spaces. It's a salvatori household. I think i get that. From both of my cultures. We do often that for the announcement. Those in then we have gumbo. For new year's we are very lucky to be able to tap into so many different parts of us. How would didn't play. Though when you were growing up oh my pearson talk about race. It was not a forward conversation properly until the rodney king riots. Now sophomore in high school and my father at the time was working for the lapd and so we. We did not have a conversation. The way i have with my kids about race ethnicity identity how the world sees you ought to be prepared for and then maybe around my sophomore year in high school right before the rise of doing a lot of reading and read the biography malcolm x. I say that radicalized much split on my activism button that has never been turned off since then it's pretty much in succession than the riots happened. An stuff was bubbling in. La before ride became there was a lot of tension between black and korean communities in los angeles and stuff. It wasn't something that happened out of nowhere. It it definitely was arise that shifted allots. That shifted a conversation. I never knew. My dad was locked in his apartment during the watts riots. We had never had that conversation before.
Former Producer and Program Director at WJOX, Pat Smith, Reminisces About the Show's Infancy
"Pat is The program director. W j. o. x. and of course he He's part of the global system trouble. I'm as i've assisted. Pd in co host. Because our good friend ryan heins program. I i'm always thinking. I had but i apologize but i'm always trying to to do things that i'm not supposed to be doing but it's really good to have you those days. I wanna i wanna go back. Because i ended up moving to a station where you. I think you were an intern But it wasn't too long after that that that you became a producer on the program. And i'm gonna let you kind of tell the story of how all of that ended up to where we are. Now oh wow Kind of a cliff. Notes version Basically like you said you're at another radio station. I think your contract had had come up and and you had Looked elsewhere and i happened to be at a news. Talk station which the sports talk. Show followed rush limbaugh's program and all the sudden you showed up Along with bob walked me at the radio station on that On that fateful I think it was a friday night after had done a show and then Just so happens. You guys came on the air on monday. I happened to be at the right place at the right time. And i was finishing up school at uab. And and you know you. And i developed a quick relationship and and decided from that point in time to kind of try to take the show to the next level and a few years later were able to get syndicated throughout the state of alabama and then mayor obviously sirius xm and then ultimately espn and where you are today at the sec network so just very blessed to be part of it from day one. I want to go back to that moment. Where we were on the affiliate in we are on the station in birmingham. And and you really started thinking You know bigger picture. I i was. I was at the time doing local television. I was still riding a newspaper on. So i i wasn't that the forward thinking but You thought to show could go beyond that area and what was so interesting about it. Is that once. it did There were a lot of people that that thought. Your idea was was insane. Now you're right You know it's so hard and difficult to tell people about this. Because i remember paul when the fax machine became you know a prevalent thing and offices and i never forget when we started getting stuff backs to us like before you came to the radio station because typically you would either be at the newspaper finishing up a column ridgetop by tv station. Then he committed the radio show and people around the south east would be faxing us newspaper articles because we didn't have internet internet was not invented yet. And so it was fascinating for us to be able to to get information from outside of the state of alabama and so that kind of up some different topics that we could do on the show and the one that started thinking. Well you know what you know. People outside of birmingham. We're on a five. Thousand watt am radio station and more people need to hear this program because we're inundated by voicemails and people you know would communicate with us anyway. They could until it's how much they love the show and more and more of the show and so at the time was able to go to to management and and pitch the idea of potentially getting on a few stations in the state of alabama. And that just kind of steamrolled and for many many years we kept adding stations and at one point we had. I believe in the mid thirties before we got on sirius. Xm so it was just a it was a great time in radio and we were very fortunate to have the people that believed in us. Just like you believed in the idea. So it will. And i'm gonna come back to some of the early stories but but i think for i want you to comment on this. I'll never forget. I was in pasadena We're actually newport together for the rose bowl national championship game between alabama and texas. And because i think a an illness in your family with I think your wife's mother or something you weren't able to make the trip and called me out there and you told me that You had gotten a call from somebody at sirius. Xm and i really. I thought you were kidding Because they wanted to run the show as a regular in an in an afternoon time slot in. And i want you to go back to that moment because there was a buzz around our Our crew at the time. And we you know. We have a fairly big crew now because of television and radio. I don't know if even matches the number of people that you had working with that particular moment in time. Because they were they were producers. They were Exa- they were assistant producer. They're dedicated phone. Screeners that That had their own contracts. But i did but i mean would you would. You agree That was the moment that things really started to change. No there's no question about that. And i'm glad that you wanted me to tell about this out of the story because i thought you were going to publicly remained me again for putting you outside the rose bowl at a outside party music. Play okay No no i was. I got i gotta call the blue Someone that are not you know. Never heard of before and they just said you know we'd love to show We want to talk to you about this show going. You know. Nationwide siriusxm You guys be interested in that. And i are you kidding me absolutely and then i remember calling you in pasadena and said you'll never believe this phone call and of course a lot of times like you would whether i'd call you and say hey. We got this coach on today or we got this happening today or whatever the case may be you know you a would you know i can picture you rolling your eyes going. Yeah whatever you know but then it finally sunk in it. You know. Once i told you exactly the full conversation and i think at that point in time you realized that we had we had a bigger entity on our hands than we thought. We did back then
Philadelphia Eagles trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts for two draft picks
"Story of the day. The Eagles have traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts and oh my goodness. It made me very happy. I was so excited. There's a lot to unpack. I want to start though by mentioning a weird thing first. In the 2016 NFL draft the number and overall pick was Jared Goff. The number two overall pick was Carson Wentz. And both have been traded away from the teams. They were drafted by 19 days apart. Just a weird quick doesn't happen very often the guy a number and overall pick a number 2 overall pick gets traded away. Especially not the quarterback position. Let alone almost in just over two weeks apart from each other. That's crazy. Pretty wild now after the trade the Eagles have a 33.8 Million Dead money. Salary cap charge for the 2021 NFL season what that means I will get into that in a minute. First of all, that's actually by the way the most ever to have dead money cap. I guess charge or penalties by an NFL team. It's so much that I actually thought that might keep the Eagles from trading cars and stuff like that might be so much of a penalty. They're not even getting rid of the guy sounds like they did. I thought it's good for everybody Carson Wentz wanted out they I think we're you know, we'll talk about Jalen hurts in a minute, but I thought it was good to get Carson out of there. It is also kind of weird and interesting I talked about Jared Goff previously very briefly the other the the record for the most amount of dead money against the salary cap was Jared Goff. The Rams amount is 22.2 million dollars off. Beat 19 days later by the Carson Wentz trade what is dead money? You may ask it's basically all the guaranteed money the Eagles still owe Carson Wentz after the trade. So even though Carson is no longer on their team. He still creates a thirty three point eight million dollar cap hit for next year. So over thirty-three million dollars off of the salary cap has taken up for Philadelphia. They cannot use that money for other players. It's weird. It's interesting. It's never that's again the most ever pretty interesting. I was surprised that you know, they still trade off a given that but in the trade the Colts got Carson Wentz so the cold they get their quarterback that the replacement Philip Rivers the replacement for Andrew Luck. I'm happy for the Colts man. They've they've Way to make it work. They lost in Turlock. They had to scramble the Mage Jacoby Brissett work for a year. They made Philip Rivers work for a year. Now. They've got what they believe is their franchise guide Carson Wentz good for them. The Eagles got a 2001 third-round pick for the upcoming NFL draft and a conditional 2022 second-round pick and here's what's really cool. The condition. Is that if Carson Wentz plays 75% off Kohls offensive snaps for next year if it stays healthy place the whole year or you know, it's good enough to be the starter all years and get benched. Then that draft pick goes from a second round pick in 2022 to a first-round picks. Oh, wow. I like about that. People are saying the Eagles got a horrible trade. They got fleeced. It's terrible. Oh my goodness. You gotta realize this is probably the best trade they could possibly find the Eagles traded away Carson Wentz a guy who has an injury history has been injured repeatedly over the years. He's coming off of a horrible season where he was so bad the dude got benched for Jalen hurts a rookie quarterback Club. So the fact that Philadelphia made a trade where they have an opportunity to get a first-round pick that's impressive to me. I think people realize that's the best they were going to get so anybody criticizing Philadelphia you did not realize how I think how little value Carson Wentz really had on the market people like nobody really wants him. I think JJ Watts getting a ton of attention Carson Wentz people are very wary. And I think it's really what's really disappointed me. Is that the Bears didn't get him. What did the Bears did the Bears not want him? I don't understand. Maybe they're trying to John Watson feel like the Bears really lost here. They still got home key who Carson Wentz has problems I think is way better than Mitchell trubisky. So debate that all you want. I don't know how you go. Like. Oh the Bears they got a great quarterback still trubisky. I like it. I think another thing people got realize is that I love the trade for Carson Wentz. He's going to a way better team he gets to play for his former offensive coordinator Frank back in 2017 the best year Carson Wentz ever had in the NFL. He was a before he got hurt. He was an MVP candidate playing under Frank Reich. He's reuniting with that guy that's going to be awesome to got a great relationship and EM the Colts have a great offensive line. They've got to get running game. They've got a great defense Carson Wentz is being put into a great situation. If he does not do well then there's no excuse. You can make he's got great great team around him good support good people. He's getting helped.
Texas Grid Failure Stirs Feud Between Cities and State
"Brutal winter. Storms swept through america this week killing more than thirty people. More snow is expected in the south and east. In the coming days electric grids were overwhelmed by surges in demand leaving millions without power and shivering amid dangerously. Low temperatures officials warned people not to bring grills or propane heaters indoors after a carbon monoxide poisoning. Killed at least two people hospitalized several others. The grid failures were most severe in texas which experienced widespread blackouts governor greg. Abbott spoke at a press conference yesterday. The fact is every source of power. The state of texas has access to has been compromised finger pointing and blame placing have already begun. Some republicans claim the state's reliance on renewable energy was the source of the problem. Charge shutdown down by white house. Press secretary jen psaki. Yesterday numerous reports have actually shown the contrary that it was failures in coal and natural gas that contributed to the states power shortages and officials at electric reliability council of texas which operates the state's power grid have gone so far as to say that failures and wind and solar where the least significant factors politics aside. The crisis has put a spotlight on weaknesses within america's infrastructure a particular concern as extreme weather events are on the rise this week. whole skylines. like dallas's went dark to conserve power. Alexandra sewage bass is a senior correspondent for the economist and is based in dallas. Texans were advised to stay indoors although some didn't really have a choice because they lost power and their homes. Were so cold that they brave the road to try and check into the few remaining hotels with rooms only to see hotels power as they arrived others put on every piece of skiwear they owned and tried to stay inside their homes. Hoping the heat and light would go on what we're supposed to be quote unquote rolling. Blackout were often long-lasting so we saw people lose power for hours. Thirty six hours sometimes longer at a peak this week we had four and a half million households in texas without power. So why the blackouts. What went wrong with electricity supply. This was really a perfect storm of failures. And i would point to three causes for the blackouts one is a failure of forecasting. Another is a equipment. Failure and a third is a failure a potential failure in the design of the market and not having enough capacity to meet demand. Let's take those intern. In what way was a failure of prediction. What we have seen this. Winter is a record call street and snowfall. We haven't seen it in about thirty years. Temperatures reached this low in texas and so urquhot which operates the grad knew that it was going to get cold a knew there was going to be snowfall but did not prepare. They thought they had enough capacity to meet the demand and they were off significantly. Some say they should have been better at forecasting. Because there had been allusions to the weakness of the grid in the past the summer say texas has seen brownouts before but never before has the state in recent history seen so much demand in the winter. And that's where cops forecasting really did the state poor and as for equipment failures. This was an interesting one at the very beginning. Republican politicians came out pointing fingers. I saying that. The showed the failure of green energy in america and renewables. Were to blame in fact. That's actually not the story at all. We now understand. Natural which accounts for about half of texas says energy supply when off line on the freezing cold temperatures caused natural gas plants to break down and so did the supply chain pipelines. It wasn't possible to operate in such freezing temperature. The cold also caused a reactor at one of the states to nuclear plants to go down wind turbines froze and it may be that transmission lines that help distribute electricity may have also iced analysts so it was really an across the board failure of equipment and you mentioned also the design of the energy market. I mean how. How does that figure in. Texas is energy market is really unique because of it independence that works well during good times where weather patterns are as predicted in difficult times where the grid is stressed. Other states are able to import power. An electricity from other states. Texas does not have that ability. Because it's not connected and so that independent is part of what caused issues this winter. The other feature of the market is that back in one thousand nine hundred nine. The legislature deregulated the power market to encourage competition and so while urquhot overseas the grid. We see some three hundred retail electricity providers by fuel on the wholesale market and then sell it to customers so customers have a lot of choice. It results in lower costs. Texas's are half the cost of electricity in say california but deregulation has also meant that the state and central authorities haven't required investments that might have helped combat some of the problems. We've seen emerge during this cold spell but this uniquely designed system does not seem to be designed flexibly yes. I think that this event has really put in stark relief the limitations of the system. And i think this event is going to lead to a political reckoning already. We've seen calls by the governor and bad house speaker to investigate. What's gone on with it. And i think they're going to be some proposed fixes. One big question is whether or not texas needs a capacity market and that basically axes an insurance product so if we see extreme temperatures there's more reserve capacity. The reality is that that would raise consumers electricity prices and so it's unclear whether or not consumers will ultimately want that and whether that's going to be the conclusion of this investigation but they're certainly going to be a lot of discussion about what fixes texas needs so that it's better prepared to withstand extreme weather events like this one you would imagine though that it's certainly after an event like this people wouldn't mind paying a bit more for their energy if it's insurance against this kind of disaster happening again. That may well be true. I think the key question to ask is how long lasting the lessons from this experience will be we saw after the polar vortex in two thousand fourteen. That hit the east coast. Pj m a regional. Transmission organization started making higher payments based on the reliability of service so that encourage providers to invest in their equipment to ensure performance during peak demand. We could imagine. Texas embracing a similar concept. It will depend on how politicized this event ends up being and whether politicians choose to draw incorrect conclusions about what caused this versus. what dead. But i think the hope of all texas customers is that there are real changes. That are made that help. Ensure the reliability of bread going forward. Because we're going to see more of these extreme weather events.
Report: J.J. Watt ‘seriously considering’ signing with the Browns

Cleveland dot com reports that. What is seriously considering making his way to cleveland. To play for the browns due to the cap space they have available and a roster he thinks can potentially compete for the super bowl. Now we all know it's been a while since any big name free agent shows to sign with the browns. Do you think that. Jj watt is actually a realistic option for them. So i've left or swipe right. I think it's very realis- either. You put them next two miles. Gary that i mean yeah. That's really smart right here. Yeah that'd be a great acquisition. I immediately went to the rams as a possibility the idea of teaming two guys who are three time defensive players of the year would be an unbelievable option. Here's the issue. They probably do have room to work it out but it might be a question of. Jj watt or john johnson and leonard floyd in that scenario and that world do you go. Jj watt or do you go the other guys.

Apple and Facebook are fighting over your privacy. What it means for you
"Apple and facebook are lashing out at each other in the debate over privacy. That could have huge ramifications on you. That's what this all means. Roger chang of this is your daily charge helping sort out this mess between apple and facebook is our social media reported queenie wong welcome queenie. You're having me so. This sort of the basis of this feud for us. What are apple facebook. Actually fighting about so apple is making this update to the software that runs. Its iphones sometime in the spring. And basically it's requiring app developers to get permission from users to track them across apps in websites that aren't owned by that company. So you would see this pop up. Come up in for the facebook app that says facebook with blake to track you across you know other apps and websites and the reason why for personalized advertising. And you'd have to click. I allow them to track me or doing. Allow them to track me on. Facebook really isn't happy about that change because it sees it as sort of an attack on their business model. How they make money right. I understand from a financial perspective y. Facebook would be so bothered by this. But what is the argument that they're making the how this might hurt consumers because ultimately at the face of things when i look at this for consumers having more transparency or having apple. Be more proactive. About how you're being tracked seems like a good thing. Jesus argument is small businesses. You know the really kind of pinning this more onslow. Businesses rely on ads in order to serve the right. Ask the right people you need all this data about who they are Sometimes ads are targeted based on your age or your geography and when consumers see ads they will buy these products from these businesses Fees argument is that if there is a movement away from personalized advertising than one. It would be harder for an app like facebook to offer. Its services were free without a subscription cost and then to these acts would be forced to make up. You know the money somewhere else in so that might be more in-app purchases that might be a subscription fees and bear four move in facebook's mind would make the internet more expensive for consumers essentially the arguments still is making now. It's interesting that they make that point especially calling in small businesses. Does that tactic. The amazon also uses about how damaging amazon also hurt small businesses. It's interesting how big tech likes to serve us. Small business as a shield for their arguments. What apple what. What are they saying about. The criticisms that facebook has lobbied against them. Apple has jim. is actually weighed in on this on twitter and he said you know dared is trying to give people more control over their data and facebook instill serve targeted advertising but they have to get permission from the users. So apple says this. Isn't you know about the making more money or you know making things more expensive for consumers or harming small businesses but this is more about giving users more control about for a over their data and so when they see this pop up bill now like this particular act tracks across multiple websites and other apps About like to you when you look at these arguments respective argument watts which one holds more water. Which or which one you think elliot's will will resonate more with the public. Well i think right now. Part of the issue is that for facebook. There is a reputational problem. I think that's part of the reason why. Facebook has come out swinging swinging against apple after the cambridge. Analytica scandal They've really had to sort of like repair. This image that they care about five ac- because that scandal was about data sharing and for the majority of people. Most people don't like to see ads unless it's during the super bowl and you know there's also these conspiracy theories facebook listens in on your conversations on to serve you ads because they're targeted advertising. So good i mean. I've even had an instance where like one time i was eating yogurt and i'm on facebook Vaccine brand of yogurt was on my facebook feed. So they're asking me pretty spot but they also can be somewhat creepy to her. So i can see why facebook is concerned but i it other companies have also weighed in and they're not saying the sky is going to be falling like facebook saying got it and ultimately how do you think this will actually affect consumers will want i think most people don't think about the business side of you know i get this app for free. Why you know what is sort of the trade off.
Myanmar Erupts in Protests After Military Coup
"Seeing members of the civilian government arrested on military vehicles back on the move has sent a shudder of apprehension across Myanmar people. The BBC has contacted their have spoken of their fear about what comes next. The military coup has taken the outside world by surprise, too. The United States government has announced it will rethink its decision on sanctions, which were lifted in light of the moves towards democracy since 2010 at night people in towns and cities in Myanmar bang pots and pans in protest of the military takeover. Jonathan head. Military coups. Real hunters taking over with uniforms, lots of braid and tanks on the streets. It becomes such an aberration that when they do happen, there is always an element of disbelief. It's as though a part of our breakneck technology driven world is suddenly catapulted back Toe a bad movie from the 19 seventies. One that took place in Mama on Monday was especially baffling as it was carried out by an army which had designed the Democratic system it over through and it kept so much political power under it. Coup seemed unnecessary. And it deposed, uncensored uchi, a leader once idolized as a fearless champion of freedom but who in defending the military against charges of genocide was then denounced as a fallen angel. Gamma is a fearfully complicated country with a history, which has bean traumatic even by Southeast Asia's turbulence standards. Get the rest of the world has bean unable to see it this way because of the overpowering draw of a woman veiled in a mythical aura, combining fragile femininity with steely resolve magnetic charm. With imperious detachment. She was the stuff of fairy tales, holding out a loan against an antediluvian and brutal military and eventually cajoling them into giving the Burmese people free elections. And in huge numbers, they chose her. That narrative, though, has been hard to square with the woman who also appeared callously insensitive to the horrors endured by Muslim RA hinges on her watch. Now we're being asked to reengage with uncensored DCI in military custody Once more. I've seen lively debates among engaged Burma watches over whether she should be supported again as the imprisoned symbol of her people's democratic aspirations. Or not, because of the many undemocratic impulses she showed, is the country's defacto leader. How did we get so focused on this one person in a country of 55 million and in a region with so many other woeful tales of injustice that deserve our attention. Partly it's about timing. Went on sans Souci first emerged as a political figure in 1988 on what was supposed to be a short trip home from Britain, where she lived with her British husband and two sons, Burma as it was then called Was little known trapped in military imposed isolation. A terrible repression of the protest movement. She led on the start of her long incarceration coincided with the collapse of communism in Europe and the rise of a new World order. In which it was hoped Western or U. N. Led intervention could write many of the world's wrongs. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, just a year after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and it was hard not to see similarities in their dignity and fortitude. Like Mandela, uncensored cheese. Long periods of isolation under house arrest meant that few got to know her well, and the world instead projected an ideal ized version onto a complex and difficult personality. She came to embody the optimistic belief that the arc of history in the memorable phrase used by President Obama, whose visit to Myanmar marks the high point of uncensored cheese reputation. Was bending inevitably towards democracy and freedom. Fast forward to this year, and all that optimism has long since dissolved in the disappointments in Afghanistan and Iraq in a global financial crash in bitterly polarized politics. And now a pandemic. Few believe anymore in the kind of miracles that Myanmar's transition to democracy was once thought to be. United Nations Security Council, the embryonic world government that never, Watts has mastered a statement of concern over Mama, which failed even to mention the coup the illegal overthrow of an elected government. On San Souci is now being charged with the laughable a fence of possessing illegal walkie talkies. That will be enough, though for the hunter to disqualify her from the new election. It's promising to hold eventually. Have done this to her before, but she is now 75 years old. If she manages another political reincarnation, the generals are betting she'll no longer be the resolute figure they've bean unable to beat for so long. And perhaps it's time for all of us. Even the party she founded and has dominated for more than three decades to let go of the woman. They still call Mother Sue and the Lady. And to seek younger personalities who can chart Myanmar's future.

So again, I think it goes to show how inclusive, how in how equitable these technologies are and also how important they are to stay connected. You know I think during this time of isolation covid people want to reach out another socially, but also as activists. So I think gun violence has been a little bit less sort of present in a lot of people's thinking. Lately, because of the pandemic, we don't have quite as many visible, highly visible mass shootings although of course, there are still mass shootings happening on that. As you noted, it exacerbates gun violence in in different kinds of ways. How do you make sure that people's would have keep this at the forefront of their thinking and and what are the ways that the pandemic has has changed? A little bit the nature of what gun violence looks like in this country. First of all, we've seen a historic number of gun sales since Kobe crisis began and we know that that is exacerbating gun violence. women are isolated with abusers who have easy access to guns, kids and teens are at home, maybe with easy access to unsecured firearms or they're struggling with suicidal ideation. That was for adults too. You know we are now estimating at least five to seven thousand additional gun suicides share.

"Welcome to the chemical mind. This episode we're going to do something a little different again, and we're going to bring in someone from the outside to talk I'm sure you get tired of hearing me talk. So on this episode, we're going to do a little Alan Watts on narcissism enlightment. It's fantastic speech he talks a lot about. Of course narcissism in early Christianity about Sudan. Isis. Who if your regular listener? Is One of my favorites of the early Christians and. And compares the two Buddhist ideology a little bit in Hindu ideology in i. think that's important. When we talk about some of these things because none of these things are exclusive to any particular tradition and the more aware we are of that the better think we can be and the more tolerant we can be originally, I was going to do the Apocrypha John on this episode I'd set it the push-back so that'll be out on Tuesdays episode. Because two reasons number one today's my birthday and I didn't really feel like recording and Monday is a holiday here in the US. So so people are going to be hanging out out in about and I intend to be hanging out at an about I'll actually be going out into the woods this weekend and spending at least a day there. So should be fun. But because of all that I wanna do something some kind of. Russian and I still wanted to put an episode APP because you guys enjoy listening to these and especially on a long weekend, you might be something to do aside from you know whatever it is he doing weekends. So without further ado his Alan Watts enjoy it. I'll be back after his speech. It's so curious that the emphasis of the Western tradition in religion. Is primarily upon right belief. Do. You believe in the right dogmas and doctrines. And only secondarily upon right action because what you believe is in Christianity at any rate. Far More important than what you do. Because one is saved through faith not by works. And early in its history. The Christian Church rejected the movement in the church which had been known as Gusta schism. From the Greek analysis. which. Means Knowledge And in a way, there was some sound reasons for doing so. Because the sticks. Were what I would call anti materialists. They divided human beings into three classes. That recalled respectively. Pneumatic. Psychic and Heilige. Last one being H. Y.. L.. C. From the Greek highly or they would call it now. Away. Really. Meaning would. So the people? Spiritual. Psychological. And wouldn't. And that is to say the wooden people were those most absolved in materiality. And most closely identified with their bodies. And Orthodox Christianity re rejected this sort of distinction. Because of the perfect to correct idea. That material existence. Is Not inconsistent with spirituality. This is something which most Christians have forgotten. But they do believe as the central principle of Christianity. In what's called the incarnation that in Jesus. Of Nazareth. Almighty. God did in fact, become material become human..

"watts" Discussed on Analysis of Murder by Dr. Phil
"It's August fifteenth twenty eighteen for nearly three As pregnant Shannon Watts and her two little girls Bella and Celeste have been missing from their small town Colorado home the case has TRIARC in the family Chris Watts well he just isn't acting the way you would think a distraught husband and father would under the circuit stances up to this point all police had to go on was a feeling a feeling that this father wasn't frantic wasn't crying Oh he just didn't seem worried you have to allow for individual differences when people are in crisis there is certainly a range a range of human behavior a range of human emotion that you expect when someone's family early their loved ones those that they should be heavily invested in are in danger or Mrs and he just didn't seem to be anywhere on a continuum of what one would expect even allowing for individual differences we talked last episode about how both police and the media almost immediately turned their focus towards Chris and it's easy to see hi between his suspicious actions leading up to and following his family's disappearance as well as his seemingly cold behavior Oh Chris did all the criteria for a prime suspect add to that the fact that when you look at statistics takes in this kind of case over ninety percent of the time it turns out to be the spouse so there is a huge pile of mounting evidence that's causing beliefs and media to take long and hard look at Chris Watts but now Chris had agreed to take a polygraph test four police rush he did really to no one surprise he had failed seemed like the moment of truth was about to come police were finally closing in on Chris he was in the interrogation room he had failed a lie detector test there was no more running away there was nowhere to run investigators were on the edge of their seat ready to pounce they knew the man across from me knew more than he was saying about the disappearance of his family and they wanted to hear it they wanted to know what happened and they weren't to know it now because there was that small hope that sliver of optimism that maybe just maybe against all odds they were still alive Chris Watts who on the outside seem like the perfect husband and father was about to be exposed as anything but you're listening to the devil beside me Chris want story husband father killer was about to thick police knew they were teetering on the edge of something big they wanted a confession and they knew they were close to getting one but first Chris would reveal something so damning that it was hundred percent confirmed to investigators that they were on the right track what was it you guessed it a secret mistress waiting in the wings and Chris had been promising and planning to start a new life with her I'm not much on coincidence to begin with but even if I was I was following this story this was way outside the bounds anyone that tended to believe in coincidence but this affair could this be the nail in his coffin was this motive you did Chris's new love cause him to want to get rid of his old one and do so at any cost was he narcissistic enough to believe leave that he just wipe the slate clean he could start fresh no complications of divorce no child support no problem if he could just get rid of everybody he could just start over fresh Kris told police he had met another woman at work who he admitted had quote taken his breath so now Chris has not only failed a polygraph test that directly asked him if he was physically involved in Shannon disappearance and if he knew her current whereabouts he also handed police a giant clue on a silver platter that he had been carrying on an extra light though he thought hey I'm better off to bring this up on my own for maybe he was trying to buy himself some time I mean after all he had just failed a polygraph about his missing wife and daughters maybe he was trying to divert attention away from the more important matter the whereabouts of his family and get them to look at the salacious detail of an extramarital affair think about it when Oj went on trial what did the prosecution open up with did they open up with hard and fast facts about the murder no they opened up with circumstantial evidence about the fact that he wasn't a good husband they sacrificed primacy with the jury 'cause you see the process futian gets to go I think about when you were a kid and you and your siblings were playing and somebody knocked over a lamp what came to your mind I get to Mama before anybody else because the first one to tell the story was riding on a blank slate if you've got to mama before they did and got to tell your story before they did you had a much better chance of being believed and getting out of trouble and when you look at what happened in the Oj case if that had hard and fast evidence about his murderous behavior they would have talked about that but they didn't they talked about the fact that he wasn't a good husband so maybe without realizing what he was doing Chris was saying look if I can I'm talking about the fact that I'm not a good husband if I can get him talking about the fact that I'm having an affair if I can get them talking about that that will give me time to do a better job of covering my tracks maybe he wanted to move the bodies maybe he wanted to do something to create more of May's because he was narcissistic enough to believe that his story what he had been telling himself was going to sail better than it action we did as you've heard me say your story goes a whole lot better when you're the only one telling it but when people start asking begins even a narcissist figures out pretty quick. Yeah this isn't going over quite like it was when I was telling it to myself in the car so maybe he was buying time investigators didn't go for the deflection they tried to guide Chris back to their main prize already locating Shannon girls and locating them right now but despite them putting the pressure on him for answers Chris still maintain that they were at the house when he left and that he had no clue what could've happened to them police knew that the only way Shannon in her girls Have left that House on August thirteenth was in Chris's car no one had been seen leaving the House that day except for Chris and we know that because it was appeared on a neighbor's surveillance camera that just overshot their property and just caught the driveway the garage the traffic pattern of the ars at the watts residents eventually after hours of questioning that seemed to go nowhere Chris asked to speak to his father running now let's think about that and put it in context for many as I said Chris naively narcissistic -Ly an immature seem to believe if he could just wipe the slate clean what he would ask any questions does one week they would be there next week he would move somebody else in and everybody would just go oh well okay that's how a narcissist this things they look at it from their point of view and their point of view only that's how immature and emotionally underdeveloped. Chris Watts was so it was no surprise when a grown man says I won't speak to my daddy dislike a kid getting in trouble I want my mommy but here wasn't when I want my mommy it was I want my daddy the wheels were coming off and they were coming off fast and he was immature in his coping mechanisms were cratering fast and he said I won't daddy he said is ready to share his story but he wanted daddy there because daddy make everything okay they were more than happy to oblige ride his dad entered the room and every word was captured on video surveillance in the police squad room where there is no expectation of privacy This would be Chris Watts first confession but it would be far from his last the story Kris told he admitted he he had killed his pregnant wife Shawan but he claimed he only did it in a fit of passion because he was enraged when he discovered that she had murdered their daughters let's just take a listen to what Chris initially confessed to his father listen carefully to how he tries to Walk a careful line of saying yes I killed her but it was the moral high ground. This was a moral high ground act.

I could be whatever I wanted wanted to be and no one really known was like hey you can't do that. That's not right way. You're doing it. He's not ready or that's really weird like people didn't really they didn't really really have anything to say about it other than they found it amusing or humorous or just weird and and that guy and that was it when you came out here you came out here you know I went to move to Seattle in nineteen ninety but was the first place where people were like trying to tell you what your thing.
