Yes but keeling cold and he had one catch disappeared killing one catch onto targets and another big guy. Tyler effort four catches forty yards. Maybe there's another one Colin johnson had a couple of targets. Okay atlanta thirty four and denver twenty seven little bit of a lopsided time possession. Here lanta had the ball for thirty three minutes. Twenty twenty seven seconds denver for twenty six and a half minutes. Basically big games drew.

But i i'm not gonna believe it i guess but here's the here's the encouraging thing pass attempts last three games forty one forty eight passing yards last three games to fifty four to forty eight which is solid and three thirteen today. But i don't know he. I'm going to say no value. I believe it. When he's playing the falcons. Yeah what about the raiders. I think the raiders are considerably. Better defensively than the falcons. Oh by the way my little rant about our bbc. Like forget it with these two with lindsay and gordon. How can you trust them. Atlanta's run defense has gotten better over. Four games yeah. It is insured. We've been saying that. That's that's true. But still i mean. They're not going to get they. Don't catch the ball that much. Sometimes gordon almost never lindsay. They're not going to get more than like twelve carries. It seems the thing is. You're not gonna have that luxury discardable. Yeah we're going to have to start running backs every single week. That might get six curious. So i hope not no. Not the winning team is named quite Player who my start him over these guys every jonathan taylor who i think at six today you know the the running back i get six carries that i like 'cause jd mckissic dude.

With was were so streaming tennis podcast everyone twelve, our guest as we do Beller Evan any insider will recognize sellers name the consummate timoth insider he worked for the ATP Tour for many years his. Was Tour Manager for the most part, but he also was. A fixer, a pragmatists they council guidance counselor. One of the tour employees who work with the players week in week out was in the locker room and really knows that the mechanics of tennis mechanic of the tour better than anyone he also briefly served on the. Board, last year and part of this year. So this is a a wide ranging conversation with a crew tennis. Insider we talk a bit about tennis in twenty twenty the we talk about this more stories from. Welders career in also been about how to get into tennis There are roles into score even if. You do not hit a ball at a professional level and weller someone who spent his whole career in tennis and only a few of those as a player. So here's a wide ranging conversation with a true tennis insider. Here's Willer Evans first of all Weller Evans thank you for. Thank you for doing this I appreciate this. Model John It's It's a pleasure. I have to congratulate you in that You know it's to be quite Khuda get both Jerry. Seinfeld, and Weller Evans. As interviews within a month of one another. Low Bar just make a few jokes in Yiddish and everyone everyone goes home. Happy. No but we passed up no opportunity to talk tennis and I was saying in the Intro I feel like you are. You're the perfect person to help make some sense of these strange times because you are someone, it's always understood the mechanics and have the insider perspective. and. Our Voice of reason and I figured I wanNA hear a bit about your backstory in some sort of historic progressives. But but help us make sense of tennis in Twenty Twenty How How are you sensing? This is going and what's your take on sort of gray tennis in this work around year? Well I think we're fortunate to be playing tennis at all and to actually have had. Three of the four slams played. This year I think is a remarkable accomplishment. Don't you? Yep Absolutely. especially. Given the challenges of of tennis compared to other sports You know it's it's not it's not as simple as. You, you've got thirty teens in everyone's GonNa, lock themselves in a bubble together. To, two hundred and fifty six players from all over the world is is a big challenge. What do you make about the rest of it? I? Mean we have. Cologne one in Cologne to this week, which sounds like Competing. Hugo boss. Fragrance collection we have carry over points we have. To joke of, it's not playing Paris because he's disincentivize because of the point structure what's your take on? Tennis outside of outside of the three majors we were able to play. Well just. To sort of focus for a second on the ranking system. And and what we had to do and I apologize in advance for referring. To. The ATP as we but when you work for an Organization for twenty five years and you stay so closely connected to it it's inevitable that you end up referring to what they do as as we but. You know. The ranking system has to be addressed. Once we took such a long off from tournaments. and. You enter. That challenge you know with the premise that there's not going to be a perfect system. Heck. Probably, our current ranking system is not perfect. But realizing that there's probably not even an optimum way to accomplish all that needs to be accomplished. So is it? It really was a challenge for sure but You know I think the ATP's priority was always to. Try to continue to have a fair and accurate evaluation of. Player on court performance, which also has credibility with our fans and I think if you look at the rankings as they currently stand I, think the ADP has accomplished. You know accomplish that goal. With Roger. Not Be fit enough to play the world tour finals I would. Like to think that a a guy who's been really hot since we return to the court Andrei Rubel who actually was was. INFLA-. Go even before the suspension is going to make the world tour finals I'm sure there are people who? Are. Going ask. Why Medvedev? is going to be in there when he hasn't really. You. Duplicated. The success that he had last year an-and. CARNOT boost has. Left back into everybody's consciousness and. He may or may not make it to London. So I'm sure they'll be people who. You might question that but I think on the whole the ranking system and the rankings that we have currently even given the the cogut accommodations that were made. With with our fats.

Well, I You know, I think that is one of the There are a lot of sad things about losing dailies. They were a business. They were my first sponsor. They were business that we had, but they were the people who had the wallpaper books that nobody else had. Now I'm I. I will tell you that what I am going to give you my first and go to. It's not going to give you installers. But at least I'm going to tell you where I order wallpaper and I order it from as tech A S e k out of Van Nuys, California sounds like something that you wouldn't be interested in. But you should be. And the reason I say this is because they have. This is where the motion picture industry goes. This is where the most famous designers go and they mail you These Beautiful samples so that you can see so many things. They have more books than anyone, and they have a fantastic Web sites. When you go to their website, you see historical view of Victorian home mid century modern. You want something that's very glam. You want a mural, and so I think that what you're talking about. Also, part of the problem is the selection. And there never has been northern Willer ever be, including our friends who existed a daily more than ask Tech as and I'll tell you a little secret. I've gotten on a plane and I've gone out there because it's not that expensive to get on a flight and jump. You know to like Long beach because when I'm looking for wallpaper, I agree. I want to see it. So when when it comes to installation, that is where it gets. It gets really kind of hard to tell What Indio I'm gonna I'm gonna think about that one. And because so many of these people, this is another area where the economy has affected things, and also the fact that people Starting the wallpaper. Less wallpaper is back, but I want to give you a good response. I don't want to just guess on this one. I am right about where I sent you. But let's see if we can come up with another option for you as well. I think it's a great question.

I'm just going to go into my own personal source of looking up information A mark, Do you mind giving out her phone number really Thought you were gonna be stumped on that one. But I have yet to see that it's just the right people because the best guy that I had on damn not kidding. I mean, there was nobody better. He finally retired. And then the people I was referred to after that, I didn't think where is good? Wallpapers coming back. So there's nothing worse than ordering gorgeous wallpaper and having it installed badly. And I mean because it could be the most gorgeous, priceless stuff on the planet. Somebody installs it badly. Then they install it badly. And that was he was my go to guy did all my wallpaper in my own home. Appreciate where she's coming from. I just want to check a couple things. Because when I give out a name here when I give out a product when I give out a solution, I'm essentially, you know, saying that I believe that this would be a good option.

How I Built Resilience With Brian Chesky of Airbnb

"Hey everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and business leaders about how they're adapting to these difficult economic times and today show we're going to hear from Brian Chess the CEO and Co founder of Airbnb back in twenty sixteen, we spoke with Brian's Co founder Joe Gebbie at, and he told the amazing story of how they founded and built the company, and if you haven't heard it, be sure to check it out. Now, of course, we are in a very different time and a few months ago Brian wrote a letter to the entire staff. AIRBNB letting them know that twenty five percent of the company was going to be laid off. This has been by far for us. The most difficult thing that we've experienced since we started the company a dozen years ago and I think join us to talk about how starting airbnb basically this idea that like strange who live each other live with each other like that was the hardest thing we were ever GonNa do it was like pushing a rock hill and it turned out that trying to run a company that does travel preparing to go public in the middle of pandemic is about as hard. And then doing all via Zoom Ios, even more difficult. I think that what people want right now just more fundamentally is connection is like the thing that we've always wanted we want connection to each other and now you have to fight for it. You know you have to make a conscious effort for it get on the one hand I'm closer to some people I've ever been in my life probably closer to my life co-founders donate we talk all the time and when you're going through crazy periods of time, it has a way of bringing you closer together but also has a way of making your bubble a little bit smaller and that's probably what's happened for me. Yeah. You you wrote a letter to your employees that is posted publicly that letter is was remarkable. It was so transparent. You had to lay off a quarter of your employees in May and you could see how painful it was for you to write that letter it was extremely transparent. You described the process for how you had to make the hard decision But also you know that every employee would receive fourteen weeks of of pay plus Severinsen insurance for a year and they keep their laptops and there were resources to help the employees Kind of walk me through how you how you came to to write that letter and How you kind of dealt with that just emotionally. Yeah there is no playbook. To lay people off in that's the kind of thing that if there was a playbook, you should never use it because the thing that people want more than anything. They want humanity they want compassion and that means that you need to treat people like like people like individually not robotically you know when the crisis happened, we felt in mid March it was pretty serious. We spent twelve years building airbnb in the we lost eighty percent of business in eight weeks. You know we're one of the success stories right and then suddenly eight weeks there's. All sorts of concerns articles willer survive never thought. I'd read an article like that. And we made a lot of hard decisions. We I cut enormous cost. We cut over a billion dollars plan marketing spend. We quickly raised two billion dollars. It's not easy to raise two billion dollars. It's more difficult to raise two billion dollars from your travel company. It's a pandemic and you've lost eighty percent business eight weeks. The people get nervous thankfully we had some great investors step up but we had to do that deal that was like over the course of seventy two hours still like get the deal done it was the. Fastest deal thing from have ever done and they've ever done. So before that layup even happened, I wrote a couple principals and I said, we have a hunt handful of stakeholders we have to I. Make sure that we act quickly in with all stakeholders. Remind we're going to be remembered probably for how he handled this crisis Andy Grove this famous entrepreneur said bad comes destroyed by crisis good company survive crisis in great companies thrive or are defined by crisis I said, we're not going to be the kind of company will be destroyed by this. We're GONNA try to take each of our stack holders and when we got to the employees, we basically had exhausted options having raised two billion dollars. We came to the conclusion that we would have to lay off when we confronted to hard truth the hard truth number one was this that we did not know when trouble would return nobody did and the second thing we knew is that when travel would return, it would look fundamentally different than the travel before the pandemic and so our business would have to look different and we'd have. To change the shape of our business that we focused on, and so then we just realized that we had to approach this with a sense of humanity said we should be as generous as we possibly could be in not less generous than that. Why would you do that until we came up with a handful of things that we did to try to help people in this very difficult time We did a fourteen sevens puts a week pre or service we felt like well, this is a health crisis people need health insurance, and so we made sure that everyone had at least one year of health insurance even after ever getting laid off one of the things that I'm most proud of that our team came up with Joe in the team came to me and they said, you know what? We have a recruiting team maybe we dedicate a percentage of the recruiting team to outplacement for the people

An extra planet passes in front of its parents star, but Kepler could only monitor one small patch of the sky and many of the planets at found were far away tests on the other hand has the ability to study the whole sky. And its mission is to search for planets around five hundred thousand bright nearby stars, the goal is to find nearby exit planets with conditions, potentially suitable for life resumed can resent spacecraft to those nearby exit planets now because they're still too far away to reach with current technology. What astronomers hope is that the next generation of space based telescopes will be able to tell the composition of the atmospheres of the relatively nearby Exo planets that tests fines, they'll be looking for atmosphere bio signatures combinations of gases.

"Really the trajectory of their lives in a lotta ways can be determined by whether they meet some bullshit, BMI standard or pass some ludicrous tape tests like that is not okay that is size based oppression and discrim. Nation and unfortunately body size. Still isn't a protected class the way that other forms of identity like race and sexual orientation are, but it needs to be because all of these forms of identity are areas where we can experience discrimination and oppression. And of course, I should add that the fate of transgender people in the US military's up in the air right now as I'm recording this there's like a pending supreme court decision happening, but banning trans people from serving is absolutely wrong and discriminatory just like banning people in larger bodies from serving which is essentially what these BMI requirements do and all forms of body based discrimination need to end in order for any of us to be truly free as I'm always talking about in this podcast body size gender, identity sexual orientation race all of it age. Disability like there's so many levels of identity that we really need to embrace an allow to be there and flourish and their full diversity in this world, and this culture in order to really heal as a culture and. Inorder any of us to feel safe in our bodies. So getting back to your question. I know it feels like David and Goliath situation with the military, but I really feel that we need to push for change at the at the cultural level and at the institutional level with the military. And again, I'm not sure exactly what that looks like because I have no sort of insider knowledge of how the military works. But I know that I have a number of service members listening to this podcast. And of course, Kate who asked the question is also in a military institution. And I'm sure there are other folks listening who are involved with the military in some way too. So I bet if you all start mulling this over you might have some intuition of how to move the needle, you know, not that has to happen overnight. But just I wanted to put this out there into the world for all of us really to start mulling over and thinking about because again, this affects millions of people in the military, and it's not okay, and it really is causing rampant levels of disordered eating and body distress among this population. So I will. Say that. Of course, the military is definitely like a conservative organization that is very set in its ways. And in terms of adopting new ideas, it would fall into the category of what feeling a Willer called the laggards.

So for five ninety nine on Hulu, I think that's a great a great deal net. Flicks. Earlier this week announced their prices were all going up. Now. Netflix doesn't have any commercials.

I'm as smart as you, I run the restaurant for you. I raised kids for you. I ran the house for you. And I teach Sundays, right? Like the mic drop. Have you to time ice shoes? So good and. Yeah. And then later she and to have that scene. Where was the mums? We're she's like, oh, we'll sure the man's the head of the woman is woman turn the head. Anyway, she wants do that bunch of times which I do enjoy. But then also part of me, especially with the scene where they're insulting the dad. I came away from the sort of frustrated in addition to I don't know conflicting feelings about it because I was like, well, he thinks he smart, but actually, you know, they've tricked him. But I was frustrated because they're sorta like encouraging and still upholding this status quo of allowing him to think he has control over everything in. There's a part of me that wants a like that to play out where Tula just marches up to her dad and she's like yet. Hey, I'm gonna like work at this travel agency because that's what I want to do because I know computers. I can do whatever the fuck I want, right. That's not the. Dynamic of their family. But also, I don't know like I feel like more could've been done by her to like challenge these norms. But I feel like they do a really good job of showing how kind of like regressive views can coexist with people being empowered within those structures of and I mean as much as it is very much kind of like a formulaic romantic comedy and its plot. I think they avoid a lot of kind of like empowerment cliches, while also like effectively telling empowering narrative, I mean to some extent we can discuss like what the details are. But like I feel like she's like with every conflict that happens. She slowly becomes more empowered in her own in like advocating for herself.

I don't know that scene did work. For me. And obviously like I would have loved for two to go to her dad and say this is what I wanna do. But in terms of you know, portraying how this specific family works. I found that scene helpful because we had already sort of gotten that indication about the comment about the head and the neck from the mom, and then we got to see it in action of like, oh, the women are in charge. But because of how the men in this family were raising how they behave they need to feel like they're in charge. How can you get something done and thrive in exist within that structures? It's not challenging the starter. But it was helpful for me to see how that worked. Also, the of someone like making that kind of speech to their dad, and then like stormy out is kind of like a very American idea. And it's very like. Yeah.

She and the idea that it was read it as a decent landslides also strange, but these things have been around, and we'll talk about how people win the dark lottery that is in quake. But this might surprise some of us to learn that, although these things have been around forever or much longer than people. We as a species didn't really start understanding what causes them until maybe like, maybe a century ago. We started in his true way back in the thirteen hundreds and other periods of time. There were inventors who had figured out ways to detect earthquakes right detect seismic disturbance. But we didn't really understand why it happened much less where we capable of developing technology to measure the magnitude significant way and today's episode is about the latest unexplained seismic events because Willer we still don't know near as much as we thought we knew about earthquakes, Matt this is something that you hip us to off the air recently. There was a global wave of earthquakes that somehow rang the earth like Abell, right? What was it was even mean, I mean, I guess first things first if we want to figure out what happened recently? Have to understand what an earthquake is. And luckily, we are affiliated with a website called how stuff works. Yeah. That writes articles about these kinds of things Russell remembering a lot of this from our physical science classes. That's right. That's right. Knoll is going off solely physical science from. What is that Houghton Mifflin? Is that the put out the textbooks? I'm pretty sure it may have been a different company. But then or they did a lot of them rings true. Just like the earth was not long ago. So technically an earthquake is just that it's a vibration that travels through the earth earth's crust that that thing that we walk around on every day and pretend like it's completely stable and everything's okay. Ooh. And and like we've kind of discussed earthquakes can be caused by all kinds of different things everything from if a meteor happens to travel into the earth's atmosphere in an impact with the earth. Earth's crust? You'll get a nice earthquake. That will also end a lot of lives. Probably if not the entire human species. They can also be caused by volcanic eruptions that are occurring beneath the crust and sometimes as part of the crust, and it can also sometimes be made by man-made things. You know, mine collapses underground nuclear tests, which is a topic we've discussed before there's a lot of technology trying to get those fracking and fracking, that's the big one who Frank even saying it sounds like it's a bad thing. Really does. But here's the thing. Most naturally occurring earthquakes are caused by this the earth's crust itself. When there are these moving pieces of the earth's crust called tectonic plates. No, there's really getting back to that physical science class. I confirmed it Mifflin did make physical science books. Good. They're still in print new editions every year. It's racket.

"Take your woman right out from under you, literally ACDC and TNT on alternative bump music Friday. I'm an extinct for swinging on by I want to point something out. We're gonna hit this on Monday. Then we're going to call here about the wall. Somebody wants to talk about the wall. I posted something by a reporter one Charlie Reese, this was it's an old post. But this is outstanding. I'm not going to go and do it today. We're going through it entirety. On monday. This is the title of this is four hundred five hundred forty five. Now, you know where that number comes from five hundred forty five versus three hundred million where does that come from? Well, there's more than two hundred million now that they're talking about or he's talking about the worst pimps and thieves. In DC. That literally verse us we the thinking. Well, we the people many of us we the thinking, but I'm going to get to this Monday because we don't have time today. This is one two three three three and a half pages. Long every word. Unbelievable. Nice duck this up on my Facebook page. You can see it there. So over there an extra ten on Facebook. Let's see what Ryan has to say you want to talk about the wall. Hello and welcome. Yes there. Thank you. Great show. I'm a little ignorant in respect to the the way things are done in Washington. But over the last couple of weeks with the set down the Democrats are screaming how he's affecting the lives, which is. Well, you know what? Now, why can't he go to them and say, you know, what I agree. We will go ahead. We can we will open it up. We'll open up government will fund the government on one condition that is as of March thirty first we hold the wall up for a vote. Well, hey. Whoa hanging. I I'm going to answer that question for him question statement, more or less, but here's the deal. First of all, here's how things work in Washington. And this is for real every single person there to the man to the woman is always thinking about getting reelected. They work night and day tirelessly to get reelected. You probably know that. And so that's the function the functions not their to represent us. It's not there to secure the border many of them want the border secured, but they're working to to get reelected every single one of these pension horse every one of them. And so they they also do that. Because if they don't they won't get the chairmanships, our committee appointments, they won't get the money from their their respective party to help fund their re now to the point of. Why can't they why can't Trump Gordon say, okay? We'll negotiate open the book government backup in March have a vote. I think that was the second part, correct? Okay. Here's the deal. First of all, they don't care about that. Either. And they're not gonna do anything based on an in good faith that they'll hold hold a vote. They can't do that in any way, by the way. I that's not an issue. We could do we could do that as the people by bringing about some type of a ballot initiative, but the congress can't say we're having a national vote that they just can't not within their purview. President. Can't do it. Either. What does it mean? Just go ahead and double down. So you know, what I changed my mind went ten million. Why don't we do this? I gotta I gotta really stupid simple solution. Listen to and thanks for the call. Hang up for second one. I want to make sure you hear this. Coulter nailed it. Donald Trump only has to go to the homeland security or defense department budget, both and take the money. He controls those budgets. He determines how they're spent. He calls in the head of homeland security the his new department of defense. What's his name starts? I think it starts with a W anyway secretary department of but Willer Willer something, but any says you guys are tasked with coming up with thirty two billion dollars. You're not going to cut corners in terms of doing anything that would put the people at risk because of some weapons system are working on. But you find some way that if you have to lay off this person or you have to cut the lights out in this building over here. You get me thirty two billion dollars out of both those budgets are kidding me? We could do this overnight overnight that walk would be built by the end of this year. I don't know what he's not doing that. Maybe he's holding that in his back pocket. I don't know. But it makes no sense. At all. You're never gonna convince me that every penny in either of those budgets is one hundred percent all we can't. We can't use it for anything else that only work for this. No, no, no. So thanks for the call run. I it's mystifying. I don't know. But I'll tell you this not one person in Washington DC, and I don't give a damn how much they'll stand up front of Cameron scream. I want I want that wall Bill. I support the president. They're more concerned with getting reelected. Do. I sound cynical. No, I sound based in reality. Based in reality. I've got a piece here we're gonna read on Monday. It's called five hundred forty five versus three hundred million people. I referenced it earlier. This is written some years back, but it's every bit as relevant today as it was that don't have time to get to it today because it's too too in detail to end up. Listen, we're screwed on just about every level. Did we not learn that see I've been disconnected from politics for the greater part of my life. I was hundred percent into. Parties rock and roll, blues platinum bands chasing girls. Cool cars I didn't give a damn about. I voted democrat without even thinking about. I came out of a neighborhood where everybody voted democrat. You're a a blue alien. If you didn't do it was all working class union all that stuff. But apparently at one point looked around and thought, this ain't right and woke up and got my head on straight and start thinking about it really does matter who's in office. But I come to conclusion now since two thousand ten of course, it matters. But does anything we do matter in terms of getting the right people there? I don't know because I really don't I seriously don't know. Now my giving up. No, no, of course, not resistance is not futile. But man at times it is incredibly infinitely frustrating because the people that keep going into office do nothing and the switch from democrat or Republicans to Democrats in the house right now. That is scary unacceptable. The reason that happened is. Because we have a loud, we straight up allowed the Democrats to run the education process, and that is on the Republicans. That's one hundred percent on the Republicans so going forward. I don't know that any of these horse pimps and thieves make a difference in some of them are different. But I'm sorry. You don't make a difference. You can't you're an extreme minority. And even though you might say you're going to do the right thing. You're not going to be able to you're on the edge. It's alternative bump music Friday. When.
