"Now for those out there who already have talking enjoy using it. The APP won't be getting critical updates, so those people will see it freezing. It will be slower and might crash more often. Eventually, it won't function at all. And what about we chat because some people think of Tic Tac is frivolous. But when it comes to we chat, many Chinese nationals in the US rely on it. Many American companies do business. They do business with China rely on it. Exactly a wee chat will be dead in the U. S on midnight Sunday. It won't be possible to communicate or to make payments on the APP and like you said, we chat is not some boutique service. It's used by more than a billion people around the world. This has major economic consequences. The Jets parent company, 10 Cent called the Trump Administration's action quote. Unfortunate. So again, we chat is about to be completely shut down. Ticktock, on the other hand, will soon lose some functions and get slow. But Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told Fox Business that Tic Tac does have a total shutdown date and it is nine days after the presidential election. If there's not a deal, but November 12 under the provisions of the old order, then tick Tuck also would be for all practical purposes. Shut down, Bobby. There's been an effort to find an American buyer for Tick talk. Where does that effort stand? Yeah, Those talks are extremely fluid software company. Oracle and Wal Mart appeared to be the lead bidders. But the party's there still hashing out a lot of details. Now, if a deal is finalized, and Trump approves that that could really change things, right? I mean, it could make the administration withdraw these orders and that would relieve a lot of pressure on the apse. Trump today said a deal quote could go very, very fast. Bobby, you're based in Silicon Valley Tech epicenter. How is the tech world responding to this news bear? Many are very alarmed. Sasha. I talkto Alex Thomas. He's the former chief security officer at Facebook, and he worries about the slippery slope effect here, he says. What if this encourages other countries to start banning APS? They don't like. It's a very dangerous precedent to center around the world that the United States is acting like the Chinese dio in a democracy. We should have rules that are fairly applied and adjudicated by the judicial branch, not just by seeing the president. You know, some legal scholars told me you know, these bands are tantamount to a band of a newspaper or a TV channel or a website and even the head of Instagram and at that directly competes with Tic Tac expressed deep concern. The instagram officials said. You know, most of its users are outside of the U. S. Most of its future growth is outside of the U. S. So what if Trump's actions here opened the door to similar prohibitions on social media? That's NPR Tech reporter Bobby Allen. Bobby. Thanks for keeping us updated on this. Thank you, Sasha Appreciate it. Writer Winston Groom has died. He wrote the novel Forrest Gump, which of course, eventually became the Oscar winning hit movie starring Tom Hanks. My mom always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get. Winston Groom died Wednesday in Fair Hope, Alabama, where he was remembered by the city's mayor, as well as the state's governor. He was 77 years old. NPR's Andrew Limbong has this appreciation. The force come from the book is bigger earlier, a little rougher around the edges than Tom Hanks in the movie in the audio book, Listen to the way the character reckons with his namesake, the notorious Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Mom always said We was kin to general forests, family some ways. And he is a great man, she say seven. He started up the cookbooks plan after the war was over. And even my grandmama say there's a bunch of no goods. What's played for a brief joke in the movie is in the book and almost William Faulkner like metaphor for Southern history and familial baggage. So whatever ails old General Forrest done. Starting up. That plan thing was not a good idea. Any idiot could tell you that author Winston Groom was born in Washington, D. C, but he was raised in Mobile, Alabama. After college. He joined the Army and did a year in Vietnam. As he told NPR in 2016 is like being a yearlong, correct is traumatic. Groom then worked as a reporter for a while but always wanted to be a novelist. So he mind his time in Vietnam for inspiration for his first novel Better times than these Forrest Gump was published in 1986 and sold well enough until of course, the movie came out and made the book a best seller. Groom tried fiction a few more times, but his heart really wasn't in it After the commercial success of Forrest Gump, I didn't really have any ad. Is it that really grab? So he wrote histories of wars generals and Alabama football, But he returned to fiction nearly two decades later with El Paso. Another book in which the main character interacts and reckons with.

"And we welcome you back fantastic conversation there with coach. Ely, you could just hear the the raw motion. Knowing. What so many others I think will have to go through this year the abject disappointment of losing big game. He lost the biggest game on their calendar as you heard some very sad news to pass along from. South Alabama, Winston Groom, the University of Alabama graduate and the author of forrest. Gump. One of the biggest books that era which came out after the Tom Hanks movie. Came back before but the book literally took off like a rocket ship after that movie has passed away he was seventy seven I'll never forget I don't know eight or nine years ago. He spent a couple of hours where this in studio regaling us with stories about how nobody wanted to publish that book and ultimately became his signature book of his of his life and his career huge Alabama Fan wrote A. Big Book about the University of Alabama He. Signed to do it or asked to do about the university a couple years ago, we had them up and huge tied fan and just a wonderful writer as well. We appreciate Y'all being here. Let's continue with more phone calls and Cherry is up next in Tampa. Hello. Terry. Good afternoon. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you. It's always an honor to talk with you, and if you're not the best at what you do, I don't know who is well thank you. It's funny that coach Ely was just on I've been waiting to talk to you about Myocarditis. and. I hope I hope coach. He doesn't keep beating himself up. You know it's not his fault. You know it's it's just it is what it is but. College football is very important to not only universities coaches players. But there's a lot of important to the collateral people like defenders and the caterers and the shares and all that. That's a big deal. But I'm just worried about what coach Healy said is mild. Cardis you know. Reggie Lewis and hank gathers they died from that and and not having offensive Lineman for Charlotte. Offensive Lineman seem to be the guys that might get myocarditis when I'm just a little worried about it. because. There's a reason for that and You know I think. You going to often find. Underlying conditions with with bigger players and I'll I'll let you understand that and I think most people can figure it out. And, yeah. That makes sense because they're you know three hundred pounds and they're going in short bursts. But what do you think? This. Is this. Is this the elephant? Terry Darter the thing about the conversation that we had. One player tested positive and you had to shut down in a game, and now if that happened to Florida or Georgia, Alabama, they could survive because they have so many so much depth but. The contact tracing is the is, is the least popular phrase, every football coaches vocabulary right now because there's not much you can do about it and you can have. Eighty players. WHO HAVE TESTED POSITIVE But it's still going to shut you down at least until we we pivot to a different type testing which we will eventually maybe very soon. Well here's hoping that everything goes very well because like I said college football, even the NFL, it's very important to our economy. I mean think about the restaurants in Oxford Mississippi and the restaurants in Baton Rouge and all those people the dishwashers this servers, the bartenders everybody's involved and to lose game days is is Jerry. That's really such an interesting point because we all think about the most obvious and that's the university and how much how many millions he athletic department is going to lose but I think the mayor of Tuscaloosa talked about. A couple of weeks ago here the the impact on the entire community school and the Athletic Department and You. Know for those of us who have spent so much time and. In those college towns on on. Fall Saturdays it. It's the entire community. It's. It's like a ski town in Winter. You you it's like a department store on CHR- around Christmas your biggest you're the majority of your year depends on those three or four months and. It has to be devastating and it's a very hurtful part of of what we're all going through. I mean. There's so many there are a lot of aspects of staff are painful, but that's just one that is close to our heart. Well, thank you very very much for that call. You be well appreciate the kind words Jarrett is in Pennsylvania. Hello Jared. I call how are you? We talked to called get couple couple months back. I know you don't You don't want to turn this into a political you know back and forth I just I. Don't know it maybe it borderlines it but heather ditch. About two weeks ago maybe a little longer I was listening to your show and out of the blue came this you know president trump tweeted that he met with I believe it was what the Commissioner of the big ten and wanted to push them to you know have a season. And she came on and what bugs me the most about sports reporting. She kind of had a little bit of snide remark that she spoke with eleven presidents from the big ten and no one knew nothing like definitive and like the just the sarcastic snide like as if to imply that the president's you know not really saying you know he's just shooting off and then two weeks later the big ten plan. So it's obvious that he did something I'm not giving them all the credit, but let's give a little bit of credit for. It to the point of He's br trying to bring what's important to all of us back. I am tired of I I get to work. So I walk I'm one of the few whatever they call it central workers but I feel bad for the people who sit around who don't have anything and their life was football or is football college football down there in the south where I visited before that is their life they don't have pro teams. So let's stop always making the political snide remarks in these kinds of times when we just want something normal. And for a lot of us are passion is Football College football. So stop the previous guy, David Alphonso or AL phony I call. The police, the political. Gets interesting jared I mean. We're talking about college football. We're not talking about the management of Covid nineteen and I, I, would agree with you and. I I've said this a couple of times. In all continue to say because the presidency the president's a college football fan he went to a he went to I. Think Three Games last year. Alabama Lsu, right. He went to that..
