"Williamson family emergency happens, Go leave. Take care of business. Lou Williams. Now you made a pit stop at a gentleman's club to get some dinner. But, you know, family member close friend dies. Uh, that comes first leave. This is and I'm not putting words in anybody's mouth here. Don Sweeney, the Bruins GM did say today. sick. He's got a new board at home. He badly wanted to be with them. And Family comes first, for sure. Like we all I think you know that kind of motif for that kind of credo gets said all the time like I think we all mean it, and we all believe in it to some degree. We all have to away We all have to balance personal life and professional life, family life from our jobs. But there is I think, especially in When you have an occupation or you have a career where others lean on you and count on you. If you're a professional golfer If you're an individual athlete, if you play tennis if you play golf if you're In one of those in a I know there's caddies, and there's no individual coaches. And let's say if you're even an auto, you're in auto racing. You're a driver. You've got a pit crew and everything else. But in a you know, ultimately, it's on you. It's your decision to play or not like if you don't play. You're not really hurting anybody else. And professionals. Team sports. If you make a personal decision to not want to be there, you negatively affect others. And so I think it's fair right now. A question. Zucchero asks decision toe leave hours before a playoff game. Now, Maybe you don't wantto know Harang, the guy and call him a quitter and column got lists or Heathrow around like really harsh adjectives like that. No. Maybe he isn't deserving of that. I do know it's interesting to me. I do know that a couple of weeks ago. When Mets outfielder You had a suspicious no showed his job and walked off the job. Opted out, said he didn't want to play anymore. He was Crucified for it. Not because anybody was really Upset with his decision. Teo put health first or put safety first. But the timing of it the way he did it. And I understand that in that clip, you hear the Bruins general manager in a very professional in a very professional. Kind of delicate way. There was no shade thrown. There was no even subtle criticism towards the player took the high road completely. And maybe that's not just a public facing Comment. Maybe even deep down. He feels that way. But I could understand if other members of the Bruins organization or if teammates felt differently. They're all they're all dealing with the same Now Let me let me rephrase that. Not every Life situation or family situation is identical. Not every Bruins player, not every NHL player, not every professional athlete in the bubble has a newborn and young kids at home that every single one does. Not everyone does. There are some who do and they're still making the sacrifice of playing. You know, if two core ask, would have looked over the situation and and said before in July, when they have the opt out period. I've got this family. They need me right now. I don't want to go. I think that decision is easier to accept. Would also I think is real is relevant to this specific decision. And might affect your opinion of him for doing it. Is a comment he made after the Bruins lost game too. So that would have been today is Saturday afternoon, so go back to Thursday. The Bruins and Hurricanes play, and Rask makes a comment about how This doesn't feel like playoff hockey. It feels like an exhibition. It feels like Games that you would play and where the results don't matter, And you're just tuning yourself up for The season. He It's in our theme. The analogy would be to spring training baseball. Or pre season football. And so I take those comments two days ago. And it makes me think that he was Trying. This is just my this is just my take that he was trying to soften. The blow. He knew he was going to opt out. He knew his heart wasn't in it. So before he decides to leave. He wanted people to know that well, it's not like I'm checking out on a really Stanley Cup playoff. It's not like I'm abandoning my team, or, you know, choosing to leave during What I would deem a really legitimate Stanley Cup playoff run. This. Isn't that this isn't it? And so how could you? How could you condemn me? How could you criticize me? How could you come down on me for leaving this isolated place when the games are really, um The games are really insignificant. Not important. I think Who knows if this will start a trend. I'm doubting it will Cause we're going to start seeing both both the NHL eventually. And with the end a eventually they're going to start to let family and friends in tow bubbles, which will create AH, whole new set of Of potential issues. But they understand that this is a big ask of players that they are making a sacrifice. One of the reasons why baseball players didn't want to go into a bubble. Because they wanted to be around friends and family. They didn't want to be isolated for 60 games in centralized locations. That was an uphill battle for the league to try to get the players Union on board with that concept, and that's partly why we're dealing with outbreaks and You know, protocol issues now with baseball guys, are they get even outside? You know they're outside of the bubble. They're left to their own devices. They're not under 24 7 surveillance. They're not locked into the rooms, so some of them get stark crazy and are goingto strip clubs and casinos Evidently. Or maybe in and more innocuous sort of. Ah, way. They're you know, they're getting a star crazy. They're going out to dinner..
Pelicans' Zion Williamson looks every bit the superstar in NBA debut

Really am concerned full the the people who are most likely to experience the West outcomes by standardization and not is your vocational courses, people at six from colleges and people on low social economic backgrounds.

So I think that they're gonNA, they're very sticky wicket bought. I. Also think that there is issue because those are the people who don't tend to vote conservative. So there is a bit of why would call institutional indifference to the come and I'll let you. Well. I don't think that's nothing that's quite cruel I. I can't think any conservative minister would want an outcome where particular groups were disadvantaged in that way. I. I know people think the politicians malevolent beings generally but I mean Gavin Williamson whatever you think of government is handling of this. He is not a malevolent person. He is a bad person. I'm not saying he's bad but what I am saying. Is that they should have been far more concerned with the outcomes and they have not been some saying that they purposely go out to do that. But when it comes down to if you look at WHO's who received poor outcomes in terms of conservative policies is the people who down for them but it seems Russia the prime example will law.

Said right before this algorithm and this is how it's going to work and everything will be wonderful. This is the fairest way of doing it. This is the only way we can see of marking grades fairly because if we allow all the teacher predictions to be used to the exclusion of everything, else would have grade inflation of twelve percent. Now I think we can both agree that that is not a good outcome to have grade inflation of percent because it's not. Let me. Let me let me explain why. called. Jackie. If you have great inflation of twelve percent in one particular year, it's unfair on the previous year and it's unfair on the next year.

"Minute decided to allow students to appeal using them mock grades. Now, this caused quite lot of confusion and the way it was source of issued was quite confused and actually ended up causing more confusion on unease than reassurance for students and teaches but think buffalo many students and their parents is the of quality exams body of Mr Williamson had months to think about this. Why on Earth didn't this occur to them earlier Moi changing the system of the last minute I, think that's the million dollar question and unfortunately the habit of changing things at the last minute and perhaps issuing press releases that don't really seem to be fully kind of reasoned out seems a become a bit of a feature of the current department of Education's lockdown strategy. No the Labor Party is calling for exam results be awarded according to the original predicted grades, which ultimately, of course, we'll happened in Scotland, but doesn't that undermine the integrity of the system and white people Scotland always look at the results of the class of twenty twenty with a degree of skepticism that's the risk, and that's why the government stressed comparability with previous years. In its original instruction, I think given the dramatic unfairness of individual cases that had been exposed after the results were issued. They felt that politically they had no choice it's interesting. The teacher estimates reinstated when it comes to results were downgraded but. The ones that had been upgraded from the teacher estimate remain you know so it's it's an asymmetrical fix. You could call it a badge but what the Scottish government will be hoping is that by removing the most extreme cases of unfairness, the elliptical route size and I think people will perhaps have a an understanding. This is an exceptional year the case forgiving comparable results for a cohort that had not had by any stretch. The same amount of education was itself a value judgment that's kind of an emergency case. So this year is going to be a stranger for everybody the question I think now whether they. Can make it out one year operation and whether or not provoke anymore deep thinking about the rule that these all or nothing exams playing site in sorting out the life chances of our young people the better do you think this is the big question do you think governor, Williams will stick to his guns now or do you think alternately he'll go down the Scottish Roussin's go with the original results. There's been a lot of speculation about weather. A U-TURN is in the works. Westminster has been very insistent that it will keep the standardization model really doubled down on it and the reason for that is. because. They're very worried about grade inflation and grades becoming devalued. There's also the added problem now that grades have been released and students have had that university places accepted or not that if they just recall the system and allow students to take that teacher predicted grades, it will potentially be absolute chaos what will happen to university offers. It's very difficult to see how that would pan out in what already is a very chaotic clearing. If University admissions is the saving grace for Mr Williams, universities are so desperate for students to fill places given that many international students won't becoming here this year, they'll accept much lower grades. I think it's definitely the case for some universities I spoke to quite of both university admissions, people and students in colleges one six foam heads I spoke to said. About fifty percent of students grades had been adjusted down at the college, but the vast majority almost without exception over accepted to that universities of choice. So there's definitely been a degree of leniency I. Think where it will be a problem is at the really competitive universities. Oxford said any students that are appealing their grades will have to wait until twenty twenty one to start at university. Obviously, it's not great news for young people who are now going to be graduating in a recession. Are they going to be able to find a job now moore finally people say that the SMP government Hollywood gets away with an awful. Lot in terms of its own record preps through lack of effective scrutiny is not true and do you think the exams disaster will that? Well, right in the middle of the fury for the U-TURN YouGov that an opinion poll which suggested that the Scottish National Party would win an extraordinary fifty seven percent on the constituency votes in next May's parliamentary elections and. Forty seven percent on a proportional representation list for it would mean an SNP majority. So yes, this kind of very public very humiliating setback doesn't appear in the short term at least to be undermining SMP's prospects and part of that is perceived dearth of effective opposition in Scotland and the other part is the perception among many people who Scotland that even. If things aren't being done very well in spelling they're being done even more badly south and it was at least a clean apology on youtube by nitwits version I. Guess. Yeah. What when when they returned, they do with the handbrake on you know there was plenty of apology there was speaking of responsibility that refuse to blame the bureaucrats and they have retained.

He's only Pelicans player with a plus minus that's negative the only one he didn't get a rebound no assists seals nothing he basically just went to score now for the jazz broussard this is awesome. So Bogdonovich is out for Utah they miss him lately. So Jordan Clarkson is going to be the Guy Seventeen minutes on the court. He's a minus twenty three always do it just Jack and shots?

You know, as it is here in New Orleans as the pelicans fan, obviously this year started with so much excitement as this team was rebuilt as they got the number one pick for Zion Williamson and You know, Mark and I have been talking. It ended by and large, How a lot of people kind of felt that it would kind of on the edge of the play offs, you know, probably not making the playoffs. But certainly the calls in New Orleans for a new coach to come in and the disappointment and Alan Gentry in New Orleans has has been pretty loud. What do you think in terms of this roster and and it fitting in, with Alan Gentry and Alan Gentry getting the most out of this group day in and day out? Oh, and if he's the guy to lead them into the future. No. I don't know. This team didn't respond in the bubble like you would hope they would. And granted. You know Zion had you know a family issue and left the bubble and on all that This is still a really deep roster, and Brandon Ingram is an all star and you have quality players like J. J. I mean, J. J. Reddick showed up, and I want to take anything away from him. But this is a deeper roster than just Zion. And they just flat just They were not connected. They were not taking advantage of the situation to be born. And what the sun's right like the Suns came in, like, with almost no chance of making this apparently no chance of making the playoffs. Despite going ain't no. But they came in. Taking advantage of the opportunity and taking advantage of Hey, you know, if we do all this, we could set ourselves up for next year's and if nothing else, and I didn't get that vibe, I felt what Watching the pelicans. It was like they went through the motion, especially once they got down a little and Some of it's gonna fall back to the coach. I don't know. I think the professional level player should be able to motivate themselves more. This isn't a you know, I don't need some sort of Lou Holtz College rah rah speech type of thing, but That said it does. Chemistry on some level does fall back to the coach and his ability to kind of get everybody pulling the rope in the same direction and they weren't doing that around league. I'll tell you that the buzz is that Gentry, but they're looking to move on from gentry that If they don't it is simply a financial decision because of the short off season and that, you know It hits every team has taken from from Corona virus, but They're still moving. I'll go fire their coach today. Other teams are going. They won't be the only one team. They're still making the move. And then there's a sense that Gentry is going to be one of those guys. You know, the other side of the coin here is yes. I think a lot of people have felt like like the team didn't look like they're already They certainly didn't take advantage of their opportunity in the bubble on yet. You know. Ultimately, the other roll of that coach is to get your team to play at the highest level possible, and I think this is really interesting. The the top five man lineup In net rating in the N B. A. This season was the Pelicans lineup of Lonzo Ball, Drew holiday Brandon Ingram, Zion Williams and Derrick favors and past that four of the eight most efficient four main line ups. Also were belonging to the pelicans and the common thread with all of those Zion Williamson and at the end of the day, Zion Williamson did not play a ton this year. But it certainly seems like Alan Gentry is getting the most out of Zion Williamson and is that a worthy enough attributes to keep him around is is the most important thing for any coach to do. On this team right now is to you know to get the most out of their best player. That is the job, especially at the end level of any coach. Look, by the time you're here. You're really you're competent to very good at exes and Oh's. And if you're not what Phil Jackson wasn't the greatest exes and Oh's coach ever so they put text winner next to him. What you can get access to those guys. You've got to be able to kind of get on the same page and it's something that I you know, This is a question for David. Gentle, Ah, David Griffin. I should say to have to search out and and talk design about How good is the relationship between Alvin Gentry and John Williams? And is this A situation where he can get the most out of him where he does connect or is a different type of coach going to come in and do better. And that's not an easy question to answer because I think we all know human relations not easy to predict ever. But it's something that they really got to look at and as well as their sports science staff training staff, which I know they overhauled last year. How can they get you have a nail on the head like If you've got somebody like tying, you gotta find a way to get him on the court as much possible. So what needs to be done to make that happen? Regardless of who? Who might who might who might not be coaching? If you don't have Zion Williamson playing 65 plus games and a healthy number of minutes, then that's not there's only so much a coach Khun D'oh!

Look the PELICANS are keeping it really really close to the vest, and they've been like that all all season. Way Him, you know this is still a teenager very very protective of their future star, and it's a family matter so I certainly understand that, but when it comes to him coming back, Ryan is really complicated. Absence of seven days or less, he s a quarantine. Four days upon return to the bubble with negative tests needed each day. Longer than a week. He has quarantine for four days. If he has a negative test the final day seven days he has gone. Without a required COA testing he will quarantine for ten days, so the Pelicans will debut. On July thirtieth they're one of four teams that play in the first day to resumption. It's not a lot of time between now, and then they have their first criminals, and just a few days, so yeah. The PELICANS certainly have a lot to worry about in their hopes of trying to get back to the playoffs, Yeah and we certainly wish Zion Williamson, and is it well with this family matter I mean that's first and foremost here hoping they're okay, but I look at this as well and I say without him. What are their chances of moving far into the playoffs structure? Like Alvin said you know. They played forty four games without him. Brandon Ingram the all star. He played most of those games at power forward. Without Zion, but once I came back. He only missed one game, and they have a stretch for by the name of Niccolo Meli. Not Not too hot says Zion has not the game design has I think the average is like seven games seven points a game. He would likely replace Zayn at power forward with Ingram staying in the small force spot, and I. Think drew holiday, said it best. He said you know. As much as it hurts to say, we've done it before in terms of playing without Zayn.
Zion Williamson Leaving NBA Bubble For Urgent Family Matter
"We begin today with news that Zion. Williamson has left the NBA bubble. Bubble in Orlando to attend an urgent family medical matter. The New Orleans Pelicans Zion intends to rejoin the team at an unspecified later date. We'll bond your thoughts on Zion leaving and what this could mean in the bigger picture, well Tony Me. The first thing is I hope this urgent family. Medical matter turns in becomes not urgent, and whoever this is, and whatever it is is improved better. So, that's the first thought and my second thought is. This is what people as they get older as they move from Zion's twenty today in their twenties, and thirties and forties is what we do it all the time. This is what deal with and players and coaches, and this is what your life becomes as you get older sadly, but necessarily the difference of course is this pandemic? The difference you you you normally you leave, and these guys have enough wherewithal to fry fly privately. If they want and most times they do and they they come back. Back and they juggle their tension between what is going on with their family member and ball, and they still have to do that, but now it's only you have protocol that you have to answer to, and you could be gone anywhere from say four days to fourteen days depending on things like if you're tested every day while you're gone, so we. We don't know and let's face it. There's twenty two teams in the bubble and not sixteen largely because Zion is one of those six extra teams in the NBA wanted to see him in the postseason. No question about that there's there's no reason on earth for the Washington. Wizards and the Sacramento Kings and whole bunch of these teams to be in this round, Robin and playoff to get into the playoffs in his created right because Zion, Williamson, second only in my opinion to Bron James as a television draw, and they WANNA. See Him in the playoffs. I Echo your statements that we hope that this isn't something traumatic for the family that should go without saying but testing the. The protocol by understanding correctly is you need to test on your own every day? In order that? When you come back, you can spend only four days out instead of fourteen. That's asking a lot of anyone when they've left the bubble to be able to do that to me. The larger question is, do you make exceptions know and to me for people like Zion and Lebron James who try to make an exception, but where where there is contagion, you can't do of course. By the Way Zion has team. Okay, and his team can help in that regard. They may have to send somebody WHO's in charge of testing. They want him air. No, there's no exception is the is the is the virus make an exception? Is the virus go? Lebron is gone, then look a little bit too big and strong for. Let me let me go over here. No, they're not doing that, so there's no exceptions, but you hope one that that this urgent matter becomes less urgent, and to that Zairean could get back quickly. Administer this I mean. The the Pelicans come on David. Griffin is not some dope going to do what they can as a franchise who support him and make sure he has what he needs to transition back to the bubble.

She is asking him to change his hours. I thought that I was GONNA wait 'til after that for us to discuss it, but now if y'all WanNa go to just have one question. What's happening? Do you think Jada is GonNa get on there and tell the truth. Yes. No I don't. I do. This fee this I. Just don't see your freely being given. Why she's doing it because I'm not. GonNa get up there and be like all right. I got some motherfucking issues, and this is what's going. Here's the thing y'all got to figure out what truth you want her to tell. A bunch of conversations that could be nature. Here's what I think what's going to happen I. Let me preface it by saying this. I tweeted about this when Shit I hit the fan earlier last week. Jada Pinkett has lived her life her own way. self-made ben on on her own. She's not will Smith's wife. She was Jada Pinkett when they got together okay. Her I will say what you want. They should have been working for them for years, and they've raised some children that feel loved and supported by their parents, and that's really all you can ask, so I'm supporting their their number two. She's facing this situation head on. She said it's some healing need to take place I'm bring myself to the table. She here everything else saying. She heard that interview year. Her rips issued statements which she like all right? Fuck it I'm feeling okay. Let me sit down now. Do I think she's about to give? Give us an expose about the the innermost details, and and the agreements that and will smith have made if they do exist in their marriage or life partnership. Go into detail with that. No, but I think she tell us the truth about what has happened between her and August Alsina I. Think She's going to qualify their relationship in a way. That helps us to understand it and I think that she's going to address things that he has said. I don't think that the conversation will go beyond August al-Sina. Will turn into what everyone wanted to turn into. which is what the fuck do you got going on? This boy was here in the first place and I. Don't think that she's going to answer that because I don't really think she has too. But I think what she is going to. Address is the details of specific details about the relationship between her and August seen A, and it'll be left up to us to fill in the blanks. Yup, that's what I think. We'll get and I think she'll be honest about it and I can't wait only thing as I stand. All the thing I did like is is the conversations that it prompted in regards to like relationship configurations Kinda similar to the episode. We have a sham booty shot out. The Shampoo Sorta Sam Budi. We talked. You know the defense agreements in different ways that people connect and different rules and people creating what works best for them, and not you know the outside perception of a relationship because I saw a lot of people on twitter. That seems very triggered by this conversation like it was like Whoa. This shit it. Remind me of insecure. How happy week it would trigger the Shibata people and then people would project whatever it is. They were thinking of feeling. You just kind of the same thing, but you know the only part I can see is the age difference, and then the fact that he was someone that was going through a lot in the aspect of being taken advantage of. was triggering for me. 'cause I was in a device similar dynamic with someone who's older supposed to be my mentor when I was like younger going through things so I understand the taking advantage part but we don't know anything. This is all of us consuming projecting. You know making shit up just because that's what we do best. HIS HAIR! I just pray there with whatever comes August.

We'll see on July whatever July thirty first, or whatever, but yet knock on wood back on everything. Knock on heads. We stay healthy enough to have basketball. That's true I should never say anything definitively these days, but we are closer to having basketball because the NBA Board of Governors met on Thursday in voted twenty nine to one on a plan for the League to return. Return to play in Orlando at Disneyworld, twenty two teams, eight regular season Games in possible plan term, involving the eighth and ninth seeds We're GONNA have a lot of time to break down the logistics of all this how it's going to work from a public health perspective, weather not can work, but I wanted to bring you on today to talk about the basketball ramifications of this decision. Why do you think they went this particular route? Well. I think as you might expect. They were trying to balance money midst about basketball and love the game all at, but I think that it's mostly about. How can we maximize? That's why they didn't just take the sixteen playoff teams. They've tried to threadneedle of. Volume of games. Fairness to the teams that were in the eighth spot when when the seasons stopped in some potential excitement for play in teams, particularly the teams that were chasing Memphis in the western, mathematically had a decent shot, a much better shot than usual with seventeen eighteen games left to catch them. I want to talk about New Orleans and Portland particular, but I I wanted to ask why not think they went with six additional teams? Instead of four was America just clamoring for some wizards basketball, so watching the wizards. It's sort of like playing roulette. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose sometimes you leave the building weeping uncontrollably. The one thing wizards are not. This season is boring. Both those teams really wanted to play I think part of it was probably well. If we're going to have a plan in the West, it's GonNa Look Kinda dumb. If we don't have a plan in the East Lake of we just take the east team so I guess we gotta take someone. WHO's the least crappy east team left? Okay Washington. You get in well, then we have to balance it. So who's the next lease? Crappy West, okay, Phoenix urine I, and then suddenly twenty two. My opinion and I said this from the beginning, it should have been twenty. There's a hard quality gap after twenty I see no reason why these teams had essentially zero percent chance to make the playoffs are going through all this rigmarole adding seventy or eighty bodies. Me The reason why it doesn't really make sense to me is if you had told me okay, the western conference is going to have a plan tournament with three four five teams, and it's GonNa last a week or ten days and we don't want the Eastern Conference. Eight playoff team sands Washington just sitting there waiting I could buy that, but displaying tournament is not a tournament. It's one or two games. I just don't. It doesn't make any sense to me why those teams? They're not to pick on them. I just thought so get it. The PELICANS obviously were playing much higher level Oncein Williamson came back, and actually had a better point differential than Memphis for the season stopped Then you've got the blazers who are nearing full health right, which was due back after an injury marsh before all this happened. and. In hair and Nerkez the deck and Oh, I think he's hurt. His leg. Oh, his leg is right. Narco hits the deck. Which of those teams do you think is better situated to make it in Portland was also slated to have a decent easy scheduling. Everyone focused on New Orleans easy schedule because it was the easiest but Portland in San. Antonio were slated ABC. Schedules. I think you would have to go with New Orleans. Only because a they were playing really well already in. Be Like it's it's. It's exciting that use of Norwich and Zach. Collins are back in their. If their backup for these long layoffs, but they're also back after long layoffs in Nurkic in particular is coming off one of those traumatic leg injuries that it usually takes people a while to get maybe a year. Even a season at took Paul George Longtime for instance to get back to what they were before. So I think you'd have to go with new. Orleans but I would not underestimate portland.

"williamson" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"And welcome to this week's episode of you're wrong and here's why I'm Chris where we're joined by Greg. Crone Gregory Houria. Another beautiful weird snowy snowy night over here in beautiful Pennsylvania Chris Beautiful Pennsylvania. Yes so you guys get to now. All of a sudden as as I was driving home I noticed a small amount of flurries and then as the next hour to win along some winter squalls Chris and Snow Squalls Elsa coding my driveway currently. But I don't think it's supposed to do or last much longer. Driveway Lottie DA. I know right Mr Mr Rockefeller No let's that's exciting. I think you know I've said this innumerable times but I miss snow in theory in theory in theory. Keyword there all right well this week thought about why the Pelicans are GonNa Richard Zion Williamson the season while the bills are going to beat the Patriots this weekend and why Madison Bumgarner is the best value so far and free agency. Let's start off with the New Orleans Talibans and and one Zion Williamson Zion Williamson the number one selection in the nineteen NBA draft. And I I were. He gets hurt after a pretty impressive summer league I would say and all of a sudden. There's a six to eight weeks time line and at this time on just keeps getting pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and we're now past eight weeks. Zaylon is still not cleared to actually take part in five one five staff or do any any significant court trills. Greg this is this is a story. I've seen play out before we've seen. Oh He's is going to be ready in a couple of weeks. Don't worry about it when our teams tanking and that just never comes. I will say I check this out and I was surprised to see over at Bethesda sportsbook. They're actually plus twenty five hundred not amongst the twenty five thousand skews me not even the worst teams is in the NBA but there is just not a chance in the world. The PELICANS are going to Risk Zion's long-term future or quite frankly their draft pick and twenty twenty by playing this guy this year. Well I mean the question. The PELICANS have to face. Is You know especially with the guys they got in that in that Lakers the deal that sent Anthony Davis over how Zion's going to Gel with some of these guys and and I think that you know obviously you don't WanNa push him back from an injury early but I could definitely Italy see a post all-star break bringing this guy back and just letting him get used to the game. We saw firsthand me and you a sixers fan saw this play Out Year after year after year and it took such a weird adjustment period for some of these guys that set out like Ben Simmons like Joel Embiid. I took a little bit longer for them to kind of get their feet under them at the NBA level now. Obviously Zion is an unbelievably athletic kid and a lot of explosiveness. This is part of his game and I think that that's something the pelicans definitely have to monitor coming back from something like this and you don't want to exacerbate exacerbate an injury and obviously their seasons essentially over I mean there what sixteen games under five hundred already to start the season. They've lost a ton of games in a row. I think it's double digits at this point. It's you know the the hunt for the playoffs is obviously over but with the way the NBA draft is waded. Now tanking doesn't work as much so getting this guy even a little bit of run not only for the team but also for the fan base. I mean this is a guy. This is the Mo what. Let's let's be honest. This is probably the most hyped number one overall pick since Lebron. If we're going to be we're going to be perfectly honest here Just from the amount of media coverage the amount of focus he went to Duke. There's just so much focus on this guy to to not to not put him out there for a couple of games just to get his feet wet at the NBA level. I think is unfair. I don't think the Pelicans give a damn about getting him. acclimated playing with Josh Heart and Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram and Jackson Hayes and derrick favors. Whoever it is they want to put out there? You'll notice that I didn't mention drew holiday or JJ rennick because if you're if you're listening to the scuttle bought of late it seems like both of them could potentially be on the block. Why did you leave us? Jj why did you do it only to get traded and take your power out of your own hands. They're concerned about Zion long-term and you talk about the weighted it'd lottery system There's just -cation to that I get where you're coming from but the point is it's still better to have a better chance. You know if I I understand. It's not as drastic a difference. It has been in the past with more flat and lottery odds but worse team still have a better chance. And that's all you can really ask for. You know. There was never a scenario where that number one team was. Actually even the favorite to get the number one pick. The field was always the favourite because that that odds were what twenty five percent twenty six percent back in a pre weighted lottery. You know there. There was never any guarantees. And we've seen plenty of teams tank only to get the second pick in the draft third. Pick in the draft now God could be fifth. Pick in the draft if you're if you're New York Knicks Fan with RJ Barrett. Going four last year that he was hardcore. Tanking this is I on. This is all about Zion. This is about his future and who you're going to pair them with if you can add the James Wise Men are and Anthony Edwards or something along those lines. I I don't know how much percents Lamelo ball would make as he would potentially be taking a spot from his older brother but added Edwards or a Weisman. Come back next year and see what you got. But you're not risk nothing. I mean the problem is we've gone back and forth about market size and things like that with the Pelicans specifically is you. You're the risk of losing fan interest because of something like this though. It's not like the city of Philadelphia where you have you know a much. Larger pool pulled draw from a long rich tradition of basketball. You know going way back to the early fifties you're talking about you're talking about a Pelicans franchise that is relatively brand new in the in the you know the grand scheme of the NBA and to not have a guy like this out there to not not give him to not give the fans at least an opportunity to see him is is a really really difficult decision for me to watch them make. I mean it's not like like they're dropping ticket prices because he's not out there. You know what I mean. Those season tickets that skyrocketed remember all the stories in the videos of the ticket. Team going crazy when when they landed the number one pick those ticket. Prices are staying the same in you risk a lot when it comes to renewals and things like that from from a business standpoint by not having the sky play. I understand that the season's essentially over but how many games his rookie Zion Williamson really going to win this team. This team has contracts as constructed. It is not very good. They have pieces they definitely do. I mean drew's obviously a perennial. All Star at this. Point is one of the best young point guard gets. He's not young anymore. It's twenty nine. But he still a very very very good player in this league. And you outside of that I mean you do like you said you you have. Jj whatever derrick favors again. Nothing Great Brandon. Ingram is easily the best player on the team currently I mean the questions going to become as what do fans have to watch. What this team? If it's not Si- On pill you get Zion over the next. At least four. Three seasons you get a healthy sign you talk about fan interest waning and you know temporarily that may be the case but who cares hairs because the very second that guy steps onto the court it all goes away and that's all anybody who's GonNa WanNa talk about again and this team is going to be a lot more interesting thing if Anthony Edwards playing playing shooting guard instead of Josh Heart or JJ radic or somebody like that and then you genuinely have that young core for you know. A wise men might be weird fit just because they draft Jackson. Hey so high last year but a guy like Edwards gives you a potentially you. It's really interesting. Young trio of of Edwards Zaylon and Brandon Ingram. And then. Then you're onto something then you're not just a team that's interesting to watch because it was I on your team that potentially if everyone matures correctly becomes the team to reckon within the NBA. And what why would you risk you. We I think the only way the fan interest goes away is if you put this guy back on the court. He's exciting for game and a half then he lands wrong. Re Fractures chooses foot. And we're back to square one. That's how you lose fan excitement. Sure but what are the question becomes as he's two hundred eighty five pounds. I think the odds yet. But it's not GonNa Change. It's GonNa Change from this year to next year. It's not like all of a sudden ions going to become a felt to forty like if anything he's GonNa continue to grow into his body and potentially get bigger. I mean we're talking about a twenty year old kid right here. I mean you watch guys transform as they enter into the NBA. A and what their bodies become. Let's talk about a guy like Joel embiid. For example you know they come into the league. They add that wait they get bigger. I don't see Zion on shrinking anytime soon. So you're talking about worrying about something that can happen at any point. It's this is the same reason why I disagreed. Continuously with the sixers and what they did did with managing the injuries of Ben Simmons and managing the injuries of Jalil Okeafor nerlens. Noel and I guess Jalil wasn't injured but nerlens was an and even Joel embiid like we did this thing where we baby them and did for what exactly. Well I would argue. NCUA the Ben Simmons thing and I will believe this to my. My last breath was not the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers decision but rather the decision of his management management and Ben Simmons because I think they care about marketing and they wanted him to be able to be rookie of the year out. It's also because he didn't shoot three pointers and he doesn't shoot and he's not a shooter in what are you talking. What are you talking about? He's I think he's too for three but either way. Well he's I think he's actually two for five on real threes real threes real threes. I just wish he's the best shooter. Benson's will not have perfectly fine. You're incorrect but I mean let's think about the teams in New Orleans around. I mean they're in the much tougher western conference. I don't think Zion brings them anywhere near getting outside of that bottom autumn five or bottom six you know world in when it comes to the draft lottery. I just don't the team's not good enough to go in night in night out and beat teams. They're not going to be better. They're just they're just not. It's just it's not going to hurt their draft stock as much and getting this guy out there and letting their fans and see what the future holds. I think carries more weight I don't agree with that. I think this is you tank and you worry about it next this year. Are you at all surprised you. I mentioned the the Plus Twenty five thousand Pravada but are you at all surprised to learn that to win the championship. That plus plus twenty five thousand goes for both the PELICANS and the Memphis. Oh sorry the Memphis..

Marianne williamson williamson who's running for the presidential nomination has never held national office. She's never held any political office but she certainly a public figure and like our current. President is an she's been a bestselling author for decades. Her books on self help topics include a woman's worth and healing the soul of america. She's a close friend of oprah's and she frames critique of donald trump not in political terms not in policy terms but in spiritual terms this nana's dan has reached into the psyche of the american people and he's harnessed fear for political purposes so mr president if you're listening. I want you to hear me please you you have harnessed fear for political purposes and only love can cast that up so i saw her. I have a feeling you know what you're doing. I'm going to harness love for political purposes offices. I will meet you on that field and sir level when she impressed some viewers with her convictions however unorthodox and after the first july july debate marianne williamson was the most googled candidate. I spoke with her about her campaign for the democratic nomination early last week. I think the fairest question to ask you is very simple. Why are you running for president. Donald trump being president has changed the world and it's changed the world not only globally in terms of geopolitics but i think personally for many people <hes>. I'm one of millions of people. I'm sure this is true of you. Probably everyone listening to this program to some extent. Nothing is the same in terms of where we see ourselves in relationship to the rest of our lives to our country to the rest of the world and i think think that there's a deep question. We're all asking whether it's inchoate or whether very clear unconscious which is how can i possibly help and i think think we all feel most of us called on some level to use whatever skills we have to try to make like a difference at a time such as this so i challenged the idea that only the people whose careers have been entrenched for years in the limitations of the mindset that drove us into this ditch. H are qualified to lay out of this ditch. I think this is one of these those times in american history that require what is spiritual leader above all well let can we talk talk about the narrative of american history slavery did not end because the political status quo of the time decided to end slavery it ended because with the abolitionist ernest movement that was in fact begun by the early evangelicals and quakers so yes it came from a religious and spiritual foundation people rose up the people stepped in and with civil rights. The political establishment of the time did not wake up and say let's desegregate the south. A baptist preacher named dr martin arthur king and the civil rights movement. The southern christian leadership conference rose up the people stepped in so in fact with every major course correction in terms of social justice than the united it states it has in fact been an intervention by the people themselves and to be honest with you david. Yes it has been centered. Religious spirit absolutely william lloyd garrison plated enormous miss rowe. Martin luther king played an enormous role. Are you putting yourself at that level as a spiritual and inspirational leader absolutely not i did not say that at all all i have been working for thirty five years up close and personal with people whose lives are in crisis and that's one of the things that gives me the inside i have because i've seen what bad public policy does to people's lives. It's what gives me such a passion about changing that bad public policy. I'd been working for years with people who live daily l. e. the economic tension and anxiety created by this oligarch system. The first thing we have to do is to return to principal. This is how you change a <hes> life. This is how you change your country because all the country is is a group of individuals so you have to ask yourself. Where am i and where am i not the person i say i am. <hes> are are the people of the united states need to emotionally and psychologically rebound with the principles of the declaration of independence and those principles are written on marble walls written on parchment but principles dive not alive in us. I'm curious about your tactical emphasis or or your were your genuine emphasis on harnessing emotions. Why do you see that as crucial to beating trump what has happened in this country and what this happened. In many places in this world is that the worst aspects of human character had been harnessed for political purposes racism bigotry anti-semitism <hes> homophobia xenophobia islamaphobia sarah. No intelligent observer thought that these things didn't exist exists in the united states but we thought we had reached a point. We thought we have reached consensus. Several decades ago where there were lines pest which we would not go on either are left or right that no political major political entity would give a megaphone to any of these voices. Those levees have have fallen now. The problem is not that they're more haters than decent loving good people. That's not the problem. The problem is that the haters in this country have become collectivized for political purposes. There are a lot of wonderful decent loving really good people out there. We harness all that and change the world. When you become president you enter a world of mitch mcconnell u._n. To a world of <hes> a senate that is very unlikely to be <hes> majority democratic you enter. You're a world of all kinds of political realities in obstructions <hes> and difficulties what would happen on january twentieth. When you you become president united states what would in marion williamson administration look like there are four pillars to the moral politics that i believe that we need aid in this country at this point first of all it has to do with a moral economy trickle down. Economics is an amoral system that has led to immoral consequences so my sense of what needs to change economically holding capitalism accountable. I consider myself a capitalist but i think we need capitalism with a conscience and ours is meaning terms of policy but we need to repeal the two thousand seventeen tax cut put back in the middle class tax cut. Stop the corporate subsidies. Why do we pay twenty six billion dollars in in subsidies to the fossil fuel companies loan. The government needs to take back its own negotiating power with big pharmaceutical companies. We need to look how much of our military budget is actually money that the military said that they need to provide for legitimate security concerns and how much above that is money that has to do with short expenditures terzic mainly have to do with short-term profit maximization for defense contractors and i agree with elizabeth we knew that three percent tax on the assets of billionaires and two percent tax on the assets the fifty million and more these kinds of changes on a pure policy level that will begin to transition back to a functioning democracy and not just a function in corpus crecy or oligarchy what would in williamson administration look like who would you bring to the fore and a cabinet in your presidency so first of all all the people in my cabinet. I've been it would have to have a lot of experience in in government but they would also have the consciousness that i wish to bring so my attorney general for instance would have to be someone exquisitely aware and alert to the racial disparities in our criminal sentencing in in policing and so forth and i would also what my attorney general to be someone who is it's very aware of white collar crime and also very alert to the issues of voter suppression so really strong kick ass progressive attorney general yeah kick ass happening now in terms of state well pretty funny about secretary of state because my idea of secretary of state the my fantasy secretary secretary of state is outside the box but i thought wow this person would be perfect and then i recently read that person say in the new york times about my appearance in one of the debates. He said that woman shouldn't even and beyond the stage who resigned. I thought nicholas kristof would be the best secretary of state that he series secretary of the times columnist yeah and because his geopolitical understanding the handing of what is going on in this world is so to me he would be and then what you get under him are the lieutenants right but then i read that he can't stand me so i know well. Oh you probably wouldn't want to work for me. Have you met donald trump now. I saw him once i i'm. I was at mar a lago for a party when he was married to marla trump yep maple's right now. How long ago was that. It was a fundraiser for an aid organization. I had found it so it would probably have been in in the ninety s and back then. Was you think of him. I've thought about him what i think. A lot of people did he was like this vulgar american character. I i didn't hate him. I thought he was you know. My mother would have had a word for him. <hes> yiddish word we allow it is a word but i wouldn't have you know at that time and this is something that i find very mysterious. Actually if you look at interviews with him from the eighties he was really different. He even look different which makes me think i gives me my own theories about what's involved in all this. Which is when you see. Some it features on someone's face turns out much. I'll leave it at that but he even when he just aging. What are we talking about. Do your research david but he would wear it. What does that mean. I'm not i don't wanna i don't wanna go into that. It's just that i think that there are a lot of people who have who finds a lot very curious about the president but i don't want to go into any of that but i will say this when he talked about politics so but you're running on a on a on a an admirably probably a policy of being straightforward about what you mean. I'm not running on a on a campaign of personal demonization a per per a personal attack. I can keep it to my conversations about the president's announce policies and that's all i want to do and that's all i would want to do if i if it doesn't matter character absolutely does matter but we were. We were getting into areas here that went beyond character and i don't. I need to tell the american people the president's character because the president's character is very obvious for all to see now. I i know this has come up and i know it's controversial. You and i know there have been different statements on us. I wanna get you on the record and as a parent of someone with a severely autistic child <hes> i wanna get straight what you think think about vaccinations. I'm just not quite clear on whether you're an anti vaccine her i am not or you're somewhere in the middle or you think. Vaccinations explanations are right and necessary as i do. A vaccinations have looked at smallpox look at polio. Where would we be without a vaccination saxon. Save lives and anytime that there is a medical intervention. There's benefit and there's also risk and the government absolutely must come down on the side of of the public good. I made an admittedly sloppy comment about the removal of exempt. Shell us what the comment was and how you would correct. I said that they were draconian. I said that they were or well. I said well that sounds. It's kind of orwellian in coney to me to remove all the exemptions and how would you say it now. I would not say that it was a sloppy comment that a presidential candidate should not have said career enough and so in other words what you're saying is to save for example the parents the many many parents in fact in in the los angeles area who are <hes> look trying to get out of vaccines that have to measles. They're wrong the issue of a lot of those people that i've heard i've heard legitimate questions of people wanting to know. Why can't the measles vaccine vaccine be a separate vaccine. I don't find people who ask those questions to be a bunch of crazy out there boxers. I think that everybody is just concerned about the health of our children well. That's fair enough but sometimes even the most earnest and right minded people are just scientifically wrong indeed and the government has to make the decision that based on its evaluation scientific evaluation is in the best interest of the public and that's what i would do as president. You've been running for president now for a bit and i wonder what you've learned from it. You've gotten you've had some good moments. Particularly the second debate you you got god knows twitter rushton behind. You and you got an enormous amount of n. Google is well what we've gotten and then you've got some coverage that portray you as a kind of crystal-gazing kook..

I can keep it to my conversations about the president's policies policies and that's all i want to do and that's all want to do if i if it doesn't matter character absolutely does matter but we were we were getting into areas here that went beyond character and i don't need to to tell the american people the president's character because the president's character is very obvious for all to see now i i know this has come up and i know it's controversial and and i know there have been different. Statements on i wanna get you on the record and as a parent of someone with a severely autistic child <hes>. I want to get straight what you think about about vaccinations. I'm just not quite clear on whether you're an anti vaccine..

"williamson" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"Williamson and wonderful to hear all my fellow candidates who are here this afternoon and I have agreed with more of them and more of the things that they said that I disagreed with but I also think we need to pay some facts we've been saying these things and we lost last time we've been saying many of these things we've been promoting the same because the political values and we've been losing congressional seats too often we've been losing senatorial seats too often and so I want to talk to you about the kind of transformation we need in this country it will only happen if we have a transformation in our politics and it will only happen if we as Democrats embraced a more transformational vision ladies and gentlemen I read an interview with Jared Kushner and your question is said that he had been in a McDonald's with his father in law and he told his father in law there's so many angry people out there he said we could harness all that anger and we could make you president and I thought to myself when I read that there's so many good people out there so many decent people out there there's so many loving people out there we go to harness all that and change the world good people loving people but the American people's goodness and love has not been channeled through American politics in a way that it should be and for a long time and the only way we're going to do that ladies and gentleman is if we get really more a more deep and way more real because love tells truth we have an enemy here there's more than one political candidates we have collectivized fear hatred bigotry racism Islamophobia anti semitism they're a lot more people in this country who love them to hate those who hate you with seriousness and I are politicized we need to take a love the only way you're going to be a lot of his with some big truth the Democratic Party is only going to win this election and the Democratic Party if we start telling some big too often we have not.
"williamson" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Nyein Williamson pretty much a guaranteed the number one, pick in tonight's draft. If wants to keep his job, and not head back to NBA, TV, Shannon. When you look at this young man's future, do you see him becoming a superstar astore or just a starter say, as I am with a little bit book, Pippi Lou mobile about this ill day? Skip. I know you're going to be upset, but I'm sorry. I see him as a star. Like in the middle somewhere. Yes, I think you'll be a good player skip. He's getting. Vince I followed the NBA, and I go back to magic magic rookie year coming forward that's been forty years skill. Only two people have gone, this kind of attention that I can recall Magic Johnson. Lebron James and Zion Williamson. Skip, I do not see him as those guys do I think he can be good. Yes. But I don't see that. I'm sorry. The outside shot is a set shot. It works if he's wide open. I mean everybody keeps telling me that Ben Simmons is going to develop a shot. I haven't seen it yet. Microcosm away was supposed to develop one of those Michael Kim grill, Kurds. Now I'm not saying they're talented Zion, but developing shot is not as easily. Oh, just develop that that was the case he to build he'd be you pull owns. But that's not what he is. So just keep the paint. I just don't see superstars give do I believe he could be an all star. Yeah. He could be an all stock. But that saying much rookie. I don't know if you'll be an all star his rookie year. I went back and checked it out. Since two thousand they've only been two guys to make the all star team rookies Blake Griffin was not one of Blake Griffin but that's an assery because he was drafted in no nine he didn't play any made it in twenty ten in y'all mean. Okay. In one country, they have a quarter of the population of the world. Let's just say they may have stuff the about. I'm not saying that's what happened. There's a possibility. So for me skip, yes. He's gonna have some highlight reel, dunks. He'll probably block a shot like LeBron data in game seven of the NBA finals. He would do things that will grab your attention, but to be when I'm thinking with the high this kid has, yeah. He's gotta be Magic Johnson. He has to be LeBron James because that's the caliber attention to kinda height is surrounding him. Yet you can't compare into magic as a basketball player and you certainly can't compare him to LeBron as a basketball player. His skill set. Which is why I can't compare him to anybody. I have been covering this game as you know, since the mid nineteen seventies. When I covered the Lakers pre Magic Johnson..
"williamson" Discussed on Pantsuit Politics
"We living in an it's flown their moment and the American people are not stupid. We're not children where dolts, but we're treated by the political system like children talked to children, and I think that this campaign is an adult campaign, and I'm submitting to the American people a campaign based not just on what I can do for you. But also what together we can do for our country and what we can do for the world. And I think these are Sooners times, and it to Mansi attention of serious people and everybody has it within us to be serious. Sarah for the left and Beth from the right? You're listening to sue politics. They're shouting. No insults. Plenty of months. So cited today to share with you our conversation with democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson before we do couple of announcements we're going to be discussing our book, I think you're wrong. But I'm listening guide to grace filled political conversation at Florence Christian church. My home church on April twenty seventh. It would warm my heart to see many of you there with the link about that in the show notes. Also our interview with Angie, Brown Elkin. At Chad allergy is up. She was a little trepidation about talking politics on our podcast. So actually, I feel like her trepidation led to a really good conversation. So check that I think so too. And we know that everyone is thinking about the mullet report today, I am live tweeting. My read of the Miller report that is the thing we hear at Panzi politics are committed to reading the thing ourselves before we talk about it, and it's four hundred pages long. So we're going to get on that. And we'll be back here Tuesday discussing it in full. And if you would like some on the spot analysis, you can go to patriot and become a supporter tha that receives the nightly nuance, and you can follow my little Twitter thread. So we want to warn you before we head into this conversation with Marianne Williamson that we had a pretty intense discussion of addiction that encompassed suicide and just want to let you know that that's coming. So if you don't wanna hear that part of the conversation when I asked her about addiction, he might just skip ahead a little bit. But I think it's important. And I think it's indicative of how she thinks and approaches things I will just read to you for Marion's bio, if you don't know her work, I'm really sorry. But you don't it's amazing. But I'm glad you're being introduced to her today, and she says about herself spiritual audiences haven't always been happy with my political activism and political audiences haven't always been happy with my spiritual convictions. But the combination of the two is who I am my career has not been a traditional. One, but it has been successful. I have been teacher of transformational wisdom a successful businesswoman. And political activist. I have counseled leaders ranging from business to culture to politics. I have been blessed to participate in many non-profit activities and speaking for various charitable causes over the years in two thousand fourteen I ran for congress in Los Angeles came in fourth out of field of sixteen and a jungle primary LA district thirty three ended up with the venerable blue in that position. So I consider it an all's well that ends well experience in my life and that generosity of spirit. You'll hear in this conversation Marianne has published twelve books and her newest book politics of love will be out soon. Without further ado, we are just alighted to share Marianne Williamson with you. We are so thrilled to be joined by Marianne Williamson bestselling author leader someone we both have listened to and just been guided by. In our lives for so long. And we are so excited to have you here today as a presidential candidate. I would say that as someone who's a longtime like I said follower of yours and of your work. I have to tell you that, you know, you have one of the the more unique biographies, I think of a very crowded presidential field. But I will tell you when we started talking about you with regards to politics is when you did an interview with Google podcast. And as someone who's been listening to your voice and listening to your words for so long..
"williamson" Discussed on Monocle 24: Culture with Robert Bound
"City bet. Eight. Let's do it man. I'm just Williamson. This is white. Bird. Today's guest them sessions at Madeira house is the very charming techs musician. Jess Williamson. She released a new album this year, her first on excellent label Mexican summer. It's called cosmic wink. And she recorded at during a state of flux while she was moving from Texas to l. a. I should tell us right after this. Kinky. She king. So do I. Jeez. Oh. This is no Massoudi. Clipped we. Jeez. Scene. This is no city. Eighteen. Mr. Soon. just Williamson welcomes the sessions at majoria Sankey things are all pleasure. Now you rate your album, cosmic, wink, and a transitional phase jury your life. Maybe explain to us a bit about the circumstances this was written in. Yeah, so I am. I was going through a lot of changes and moved away from Texas. I moved to Los Angeles. I also fell in love in a really big way in a way that felt pretty life changing. Those were the two major things that were happening on first Rainer at the album. And then also right before we started recording my dog died my beloved animal companion Frankie. And so it was this really interesting thing because I. As Ryan the album and I'm falling in love so deeply and living in this new environment are seeing that she was fading, you know, and so are starting to think a lot about the passage of time and even just her face, like the graying of the for her is was reflecting back to me in this really tangible way the passing of time and something about being in love and this huge way and thinking a lot about time influenced ause on the Elbe. I'm kind of posse of time thing is something that you find quite intimidating, or is it something that Spurs you on to carry on making music d thing? Both. Yeah. Yeah. I often think about how we have such little time in our lives. So you make a count and work really hard and go for the things you really want for sure. But like, you know, there's. Like a song on the album. That's a little bit. I see the white as the song. It's like a little bit throwing a tantrum about time. You know, like being mad that there's not enough time. There's a few songs that deal with that on the room. Yeah, I engage with this in a number of ways from being like a childish angry kid about it to letting it be a motivation and an inspiration runs the gamut. And this whole kind of writing in a state of flux when things are changing in your life, do you find an easier point to write music from? I mean, music kind of ground you again, when you're in between times perhaps I've found that it's the songs come from different places. Like I long as I've been writing songs started out that I only write songs if I was really sad in heartbroken, not find inspiration from that, and it was this release. But then with this last album, I found that I was really happy for the most part and feeling a lot of love. And so I, I wasn't a transitional place being new town in. So I treated writing music like my day job, and I just woke up every morning and started writing no matter what you divide in having spray Shen treated at like a real practice. It became a practice is the first time my life had been able to do that proper nine to five. Yes, yes, because I was nude. Away at a lot of people yet. I didn't have like normal job at the time. You know, I've been saving to make that possible and it was yes, we're somewhere I, I really was able to live like an artist and this way always wanted and treat it like my job. Yeah, this one's called awakening baby. Today.
