"Ago there was a commercial with EF Hutton Very famously when EF Hutton talks people listen When I hear about you is when senator Senate Santana talks we listen You've got to softness about you You don't lie you don't scream How are you so effective while being so classy Well I tell you this I think you know it all goes back to my creed on life Guy first family second a career last And so I think you know the direction that people listen to me because I don't speak often I told you I'm more of a listener But I think that ultimately I want nothing more but for the best for our constituency across this data Michigan And I think people know that about my me as a person And so I think that resonates with my colleagues more than anything I think that ultimately I'm a very pragmatic person So I try to cut through the red tape real quick and I try to make sure that when I introduce something or we implement something that is something that's going to be long-standing And so that's why I feel that my colleagues are very open to hear my ideas and take them up for consideration She may not talk often but senator Santana a year ago was named democratic legislature of the year in Michigan All right senator the animosity the contempt the hatred Between the two sides today I mean families are fighting you know kids husbands husband wives brothers brothers what's the solution Well I think these are all things that we're brewing before the pandemic I just think that you know when life is idle people tend to pay attention more And have more time on their hands And so you know one of the things we try to prioritize you know during this pandemic was making sure domestic violence funding was available As far as my colleagues go you know I definitely think that you're right There has been a divide but when money came into the picture people get along better and money's available to spend versus prior to that Because I will tell you Jack they were on the two different bookends Prior to this pandemic But I think you know I've heard one of my colleagues say it best You know let's work on the things that we can't agree on And those that we can not let's just put aside for another day I think that's what the priority should be And I think as long as we're prioritizing the people in Michigan and their needs first that's what we should be doing anyway And so I think if we continue on that vein we will be successful All right I quote you now Michigan is at a fork in the road Now Yogi Berra once said when you come to a fork in the road take it Okay But Michigan is at a fork in the road Sylvia what do you mean by that Well I think you know we definitely seen where this pandemic has shown us all of our vinyl were built vulnerabilities whether it be the supply chain whether it be our hospital infrastructure and our nurses and our actual workers our first responders if you will we've seen where education system has been challenged through this pandemic because our kids are struggling with behavioral health as well as just being able to sustain themselves at the level of their performance because of the pandemic And not having in person class all the time And so I think there's a lot of things that we have to go back and take a look at and reevaluate how we're moving forward I believe that we are at a crossroads and is that fork in the road is definitely there And if we don't go the right path meaning that we don't invest in our infrastructure we don't invest in making sure that our students have the type of mental health supports they need in the classroom or in the schools If we don't invest in making sure that our hospitals are crises And we don't invest in our supply chain being more locally available to us We are going to see where these challenges that we've already seen get worse eventually with time And so I think for this legislative body we have to make sure that we're doing everything in our willpower to make sure that we're setting up Michigan for success in the future whether it be bringing businesses here or whether it be making sure that the individuals who have decided to live work and play as residents in the state have everything that they can at the kitchen table to make sure that they can be successful more month than money are more money than my excuse me They can afford their prescription drugs That our teachers don't have to feel like the weight of the world is on their shoulders but they can actually do their jobs and actually teach our students versus have all these other requirements that we've required as a state that are not necessary for teaching and educating our kids And so there's a lot of things there I know I said a lot and I've packed a lot in a little bit of time But I definitely believe that we have to as a state set our kids up for success and also the people who live here We lose way too much talent from the state We educate everyone and they leave the state and we don't have those resources available to us when they leave college And so I think we have to find ways to keep those students here as well Speaking of way too much talent anybody that's listening tonight says this is one special young woman You could make so much more in the private sector Sylvia Why run again Why keep doing this I have a heart of service you know And I think if you will do anything for free then you should do it to make sure that you can better the constituents around you and my heart is with the community And it always has been and always will be And so I believe that in order to make effective change I have to be in a place where I can have a seat at the table to make those changes And I believe that I am positioned four times such as this And we've seen where my leadership has remained constant And people listen to me And I think that that is one of the priorities that we have to continue to focus on is making sure that Michigan remains a top priority One of the things I can't stand Jack is being at the bottom of all the lists and nationally And I think we have an opportunity in Michigan to be at the top of those lists We come up with all the great ideas but we're always the last ones to implement them by way of policy and resources And so I believe that Michigan is uniquely positioned and we have a great opportunity to be the state where everybody is attracted to and wants to come and want to invest their money Well as.

"And my dad who has been a really dorky stamp collector my entire life, he was beside himself thrilled that the post office would consider this so he said course I you mention the artwork I am absolutely in love with this thing just thinking about, it makes me smile. It's such a great image of my grandfather but it didn't start that way. The first few drafts, it took was a picture of him batting or catching and it was kind of far away. You couldn't see his face, but there were apparently, a lot of really big Yankee fans within the post office who said, no, no, we can't use that artwork for Yogi. He was so much more than just a baseball player. We have to do something that shows his personality. So we ended up with this beautiful, digital artwork of my grandfather smiling, like you said, the Yankee cap. There, you see the catch the, the chest protector, so, you know, he's a catcher, but even people who don't know, he is who he is, we'll get this thing in the mail and see that big smile and be like, hey who's happy fellow bringing a little joy to my mailbox and maybe they see that slogan Yogi, Berra forever and and Google him and learn a little bit more about him. And I don't know that there's a better way that we could have come up with to keep Grandpa's Legacy alive, then sending his picture all over the country with the tagline Yogi Berra Forever on it. So it is literally just amazing and we're all just I mean I've had perma-grin all week. Is there any other ways in the future that you guys plan on honoring your grandfather's Legacy? Obviously, you have the museum. There's this amp has all kinds of great stuff going on, but do you have anything else in the future wage plant? Really? Just we had to kind of suspend all big events obviously because of covid-19 one else had to, we have a golf outing every year that is normally in the spring. But will be in October this year and we do have a Galah every year in April that takes place at the Plaza Hotel in New York. But the best way to kind of find out what's going on with the museum is to either follow the museum on Twitter page, you'll get better Museum, or you can follow me on Twitter. And I always tweet all the events that are happening. You can follow the Yankees because they do a lot of stuff with with my grandfather as well..

"Out here in New Jersey about, and it was probably about twenty five minutes from Yankee Stadium. And they, they had a bowling alley e. For four years and that was their offseason business. But they needed to have extra jobs to be able to support their families. Wow, honestly. And this is going to sound weird, but I think that is one of the most interesting facts I have read about your grandfather and all of the facts that I've ever heard about him, is him having to work multiple jobs while playing and playing so well in the MLB back in the day wage. That's super, freaking cool. And really interesting. So I'm definitely going to be using that clip is like a highlight clip having you talk about that because I think that's like mind-blowing. I'm like speechless at this point much stuff leads in in the fifties and the sixties had to have other, you know, business interests to be to be able to work his team. They just didn't make. Even even in the if you compare the money to wage, you know, back then type money. They they had a well-paying job but they weren't like crazy Rich. The way athletes are today. So friggin interesting, I literally love that fact that game For sharing that with the boss babes Fanatics and I want to jump into talking about the Yogi Berra Museum shortly. But before we get into that, your grandfather is widely known or what people call quote, unquote, yogi-isms. So, are there any yogi-isms that stick out in your mind? What are some of your favorites? And I know people still use some of them to this day sucks. The most famous ones are when you come to a fork in the road, take it, nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded. It ain't over till it's over, is probably the most famous. My favorites are more than a potential ones. If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be future. Ain't what it used to be. What I like to point out about the yogi-isms, is that on the surface, a lot of them seem to be a little silly, but if you're able to open your mind, they really do. Make a lot of sense and there is some very Sage wisdom in there. My grandfather had a very unique way of looking at the world. And he was just very able to cut through all the BS and all the noise, and call it like he saw it. So, like, for example, nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded, right? If you knew the restaurant was down, totally jam-packed and you were hungry. Would you go there and wait on line for for an hour to eat know, you'd go somewhere else, where you know, you could get a cheeseburger right, you know, the future ain't what it used to be, you know, as we could see things evolve every day and and it's not what we thought it would be. So so many of them are are so like you know, prescient and and they really just make a lot of sense when you think about them and I I know growing up that if I went to ask my grandfather for advice he he would he would point out something that was so obvious that you actually couldn't see it yourself. You needed him to pull out for you. So he was great for that. Super fantastic. I'm I'm happy that I asked that question about the yogi-isms and I want to talk about the fact that you are actually a board member at the Yogi Berra. Yep. Family Museum. I've never been there before. I would love to go there. Is it located in New Jersey dep? So the Yogi Berra, Museum and learning center is on the campus of Montclair State University in Little Falls New Jersey. It's literally twelve miles west of the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel. You can be here from Manhattan in less than 20 minutes. There's actually a train that comes from Penn Station right out to the university..

"Awesome products. Now guys, back to the episode baby. He actually his he would tell you that. His three older brothers were better baseball players than he was, but the family was very poor. And the older brothers had to work to help support the family. But by the time, it got down to my grandpa Yogi, his older brother's convinced my great-grandfather Pietro to let Grandpa Yogi. Have a chance to play baseball, so one of them would have a chance to make it as a baseball player at that point. My grandfather was a right-handed hitter and and threw right-handed, my Uncle Tony had the presence of mind. Not to take my grandfather from being a right-handed hitter and switch him around to being a lefty because he thought he would have a better chance of making the big leagues, as a left-handed hitter. And we all know how that turned out because Yogi Berra is not Yogi Berra. A he's right handed. So that happened when he was about ten years old and he played American Legion ball. He, this is actually sort of a crazy story. He dead. And his neighbor across the street who was a guy named Joe, garagiola Joe is in the Baseball Hall of Fame, as a broadcaster. He played and played for, and won a World Series with the st. Louis Cardinals. In a early 1940s, Grandpa and Joe garagiola went to a open tryout for the Saint Louis Cardinals together at that time. Branch Rickey, who would later become the general manager of the Dodge Chargers and become famous for signing Jackie. Robinson to break the color barrier in baseball. At that time. Branch Rickey was the general manager of the st. Louis Cardinals. Branch Rickey offered Joe. Garagiola $500 as a down to sign with the Cardinals. He only offered my grandfather, 250 bucks and Grandpa thought that he and Joe were worth the same amount so he told Branch Rickey. No Branch. Rickey had a plan. He did this on purpose. Knew he was leaving the Cardinals and going to the Dodgers and he wanted to save Grandpa Yogi for the Dodgers. However in the interim of Branch, Rickey moving from the Cardinals to the Dodgers George Weiss from the Yankees, swoops in and signs my grandfather. And the rest is history because of Grandpa Yogi, had been a Dodge things would have been very different as well. Oh, my gosh. I actually love learning all that history because I feel like people grow up reading about the grades, like, your grandfather, like Joe DiMaggio, like, Mickey Mantle. And it's like, we don't hear these inside or story. So, I'm so happy that you were on here being able to tell those Insider stories. First of.

"That you accrue a away from alcohol. For those of you guys that aren't familiar with alcohol, I actually have to stay away from it a good about 2 because I have really bad allergies. And if you drink too much alcohol, it can actually create inflammation in your body. So if you're active, like Lindsay is staying away from alcohol is very important. Please stay with us. You guys just listen to Lindsay Berra, talk all about her early years, growing up, in Jersey with her family home with their mom and dad with her grandfather. Also everything in between sports-related playing Collegiate softball. Also, playing men's league, freaking hockey at home. Hours in the morning before going to school, we are hearing her talk about food and her podcast food of the Gods podcast. She is actually a host in just started releasing episodes. I believe this past month, the month of June. So, we are going to switch on over to the Barrett family Legacy. This is part two. So Lawrence, Peter Berg Yogi Berra. He was actually born in nineteen twenty-five, and he is a legend in the baseball world. I'm just going to ramble off some facts for you guys. For those of you guys, that will be listening to this podcast. He played the position of Catcher, which is why I was picking Lindsay sprained earlier. If she ever played that position herself, he also later became a coach and a manager he played freaking 19 Seasons, like holy crap, 19 seasons in the MLB. Most of them, with the infamous, New York Yankees, we all know that the Yankees are literally a dynasty. He one freaking dead. And at World Series like that is almost unheard of ten World Series and 18 time, all star and widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in baseball history. Hold on guys, I have some more facts for you. You need another page and another page and like, hold on a minute. Let me flip it over. I'm like he is only one of six players who win the American League MVP award three times. So not one but three times and he was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame back in 1972. So Lindsay, let's talk all about your father, his lasting Legacy on the baseball world. And before we even talked about about that, how the heck did he himself get into the sport of baseball so he grew up on the hill in St. Louis Missouri, the hill was the Italian section. His parents were Italian immigrants. All three of his older brother. Brothers were born in Italy. He was the first sibling born here, and then his younger sister behind wage. And the kids on the hill, just sort of sounds the way I grew up. We had TV but I wasn't allowed to be inside and watching it. Grandpa didn't have TV. There was no video games. So they were just outside playing sports all day. They played Sandlot baseball, he played basketball, he played football, he played street hockey, they used to duct tape newspapers to their shins because they couldn't afford shin guards. They played this crazy game, where you hit a bottle cap with a broomstick. And I would say, and Grandpa was known as a quote unquote bad ball hitter, but I'm pretty sure that he developed a lot of that hand-eye coordination hitting a bottle cap with a break. Try that it is very hard Hank. Aaron did it to when we see where that got him with all those home runs. So anybody wants to learn how to hit a baseball try that it's, it's very difficult, do do do the Olympics Euros, baseball major championships and concerts are all in this summer. But you know, what is it.

"You know what braces two weeks next week is Michael del zotto, the NHL defenseman, who is in a ridiculously good shape. If you check out, Michael. Has Instagram, you'll see he has like muscles on top of muscles, he's super lean. His podcast was really fun and then Brisa. And then we actually have an interview with Jason, a Khalifa, who was in the CrossFit Games. I think for eight years running and he did win the CrossFit Games in 2008. I have been across the coach for many, many years. I started doing CrossFit in 2008 when the year that Jason khalipa one. So I've been doing it for about thirteen years, I always say, since before it was cool that interview was was pretty fascinating to me. Just because I've always been a Jason khalipa fan off. And because he just trained so much that it's just kind of cool to see, you know, how he eats and also how his idea towards training that much has evolved as he's gotten older. So that was a really interesting one as well. That'll be three weeks from now. Again, for those of you guys are listening, please check out Lindsay, Bears podcast food of the Gods. You can find it on all forms of social media. It sounds like an also. Any thoughts were, you can find the availability to listen to a podcast. Whether it be on iTunes Spotify properly iHeartRadio. Please go check that out and I know Lindsay, you just spoke about being a CrossFit box which leads into my next question. How do you train to be an athlete? I also know who are a runner hiker golfer and much more. So, I would assume that having your grandfather be heavily involved in baseball, and you being such a fantastic athlete yourself. That probably lately, sparked your interest in wanting to start this podcast. So how do you train as an athlete? And what the heck do you enjoy eating? That's birth. The in your life. So I have always been an exercise aholic. It actually, you know, Grandpa obviously was an athlete but a lot of that actually came from my mother growing up who she was a cyclist. She was a runner, she was a racquetball player. She I always kind of kid her. She was riding her bike, like literally sixty miles out of shot. While she was pregnant with me and I was born very early at 31 weeks. I'm like, Mom, maybe if you hadn't been riding your bike sixty miles a day. I would have stayed in there a little longer. My mom was definitely an exercise aholic and I definitely got a lot of that from her as well. I, you know, after I graduated from college, I was into triathlons for a number of years. I was running ten milers and half-marathons the Olympic distance Triathlon was was my thing that's a, what is it? A 1.5 mile swim, like, a 20-mile bike and a 10k run 6.2 miles at the end. I did a bunch of those and then I had a massive hip surgery in 2007 which was the result of playing hockey with boys for so many years. To labrum tear is a bone spur on my femur or so as impingement all kinds of stuff. So, I stopped running as much started biking a little bit more and also started doing CrossFit right after my hip surgery because I wanted all the muscles around my messed up hip to be super strong. And I really fell in love with Crossfit, not for a lot of the same reasons that a lot of people fall in love with it. People love competing against other people in CrossFit, I never really cared what the person next to me was doing. I like to compete against myself and, you know, be better than I was the week before..

Romney says Trump would win GOP nomination 'in a landslide' in 2024

"Alright Senator Mitt Romney, one of the more outspoken anti Trump Republicans in the party right now, says former President Donald Trump will end up winning the GOP presidential nomination in 2024 if he run. No kidding yes. During a New York Times event on Tuesday, Romney said. That Trump will likely continue to be very involved in the future of the Republican Party. Here's what he had to say. Well, well. President Trump continue to play a role in my party. I'm sure you will. He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party. I don't know about his family members whether they intend to do that, but but I expect he will continue playing a role. I don't know if he'll run in 2024 not but if he does Yeah, I'm pretty sure he will win the nomination. You think he would win the nomination? Oh, I think you'd win the nomination. If you run. I mean, what can happen between now and 2024. So on I'm not great at predicting I'm I subscribe the Yogi Berra's philosophy in that regard, he said, I don't like that. I don't like predicting particularly the future's involved. So I I don't really know what'll happen there. But I look at the polls in the polls show that among the names being floated his potential contenders in 2024. If you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide. I would not be voting for President Trump again. I haven't voted for him in the past on, I would probably be getting behind somebody who I thought more represented the tiny wing of the Republican Party that I

"When he's saying is all true. First off with this is we're going through the same thing all over again. Deja vu all over again. Yogi Berra, where You had people showing up at the border claiming asylum, and there were folks like me who did research and went to the border and figured out from Border patrol from the cases from the numbers that were actually coming up every day. That they were lying. Essentially, people are showing up the border. They had been coached, and they were claiming that they faced violence in their home country. But that was just a past a credible fear State of fear standard and then they wouldn't show up in court. When it was time to show up and explain really, why they needed asylum. So they were exploiting the good faith and goodwill of the American people. The border and there was all this fighting. You know, one of the Trump presidency from the Democrats were saying, That's not true, and we're a nation of immigrants and all this stuff. They were wrong. It was alive. Because when the remain in Mexico program all of a sudden Oh, you can still go to court tea, please. You know your asylum case in court as a Central American, for example. But you gotta wait in Mexico, which means you don't get to just go into the American interior disappear and never show up in court all And then all of a sudden, the newest, all of a sudden asylum cases dropped off a cliff. Gee, I wonder why Democrats were lying. They were lying until we could. It was obvious what was going on. But until we had all the data to prove what was going on, they were just going to continue to perpetuate the lie, which is what they did. And now that we have all the data, they're just they're just acting like Oh, well, it's different now. So let's let's go back to the previous policy where people who show up get to claim Oh, I have a credible fear. And then they get to stay in the country. And this is an end run in the immigration system and all the legal immigrants, you know. Ask them about this. Ask them how they feel about people showing up crossing the country illegally because they're often doing an illegal surrender after the cross the border and then they find themselves. In the country without any restraint. They could go anywhere they want, do whatever they want, and they never show up again. But Democrats acting.

"Election night in Pennsylvania. The vote tally was Donald Trump 52%. Joe Biden 44%. One week later. Donald Trump 49% Joe Biden 50%. In Michigan on election night, Donald Trump 54%. Joe Biden 44%. One week later. Trump 48 Biden 51. In Georgia Election night Trump 53 Biden 45. One week later. Trump 49 Biden 49.5 and still counting So what the deuce happen. Mail in ballots happened. Did they really break for Biden? That big? That is the root of the current controversy? One which the FBI is now investigating? Now, Joe Biden believes he won the race handily. The media has deemed him President elect. No official body has done that. Just the media. And Mr Biden ran with it as any candidate would Gave a speech saying he's gonna unite everybody to give him a chance. All of that. So Biden is in the strong position here. President. Trump also said he won on election night which was true. At that moment. But then, of course, he was overwhelmed by Malin balance the president refusing to concede. His administration believes there was cheating. Now the FBI as I mentioned is investigating. But it would take a lot for a court. To intervene. Federal judges don't like to be election deciders, even if the Supreme Court level But some votes upon examination will be thrown out. And in states like Arizona. Where it's still razor thin. That could matter. In Pennsylvania. Right now, the vote difference is 45,000 Biden ahead. That's not a lot of votes, however, to throw out 45,000 votes because some of them are invalid. That's a lot In Michigan is a whopping 129,000 votes separating Joe Biden from Donald Trump in Georgia. Just 12,000 votes. And that state will recount Now there. Donald Trump is a chance. Also in Arizona, less than 15,000 votes separate the leader Biden. From the president. And they're still counting. In Arizona. As Yogi Berra once said, It's not over. Till it's over. But Yogi voted in person. This year. Male in Valence turned the entire election around. Was it honest? I don't think we're ever going to know. I don't think that Donald Trump is going to have enough to become the next president. It will be Joe Biden unless the FBI finds a catastrophe.

"Isn't working the pre recorded thing, which is all screwed up because it says the following show, it's actually the preceding show. Then it ends and he's nowhere to be found. Where were you? Talking to the cleaning. That's right. You could tell that it's the end of my week. And I don't to our Friday show Paul is already done for the week altogether. I'm still here waiting for him to come back into the studio to get me back on the air is he's yap out of the cleaning crew in there. I hope he What is he going to go by is at least 12 minutes. It always seems longer than it is evident is like 12 seconds, So it was up there for a while. Anyway, proof that everything's in the Internet. Would you believe I found the box score from the baseball game I was talking about. It wasn't in August. It was in July, but I had everything else correct, Including that it was Jimmy Qualls that got the hit to break up the perfect game in the ninth inning. It was July. Ah. Ninth at Shea Stadium in New York that Seaver almost pitched the perfect game, and there was one more Hall of Famer involved in that game that I didn't think of. He was a baseline coach. The first base coach for the New York Mets. That year was this's just a great story. Yogi Berra. Yogi Berra, coach first for the For the Mets. The rest the lineup, though, that I had down Pat, let's end with this. I have always tried to make the distinction between private school teachers who are dedicated to their craft. And public school teachers who are often union hacks who are more interested in ideology. Izing inner is concerned only with how much money they make and how quickly they can retire. That's not all public school teachers, but I think unfortunately, it's the majority of them. So I'd like to share the following. I received this from a kindergarten teacher at a private school. She writes. I won't read it. Mark. Thank you for making the distinction in recent weeks between private school in public school teachers, I have been teaching private in a private event in a private evangelical Christian schools in Milwaukee and walking shot CODIS for over 20 years, and, if constantly felt slighted when lumped in with public school teachers when policy issues relating to education over the years, my salaries have paled in comparison. And by benefits, aside from tuition discounts for my own Children have been the most for the most part, not exist. Did. I do not complain because I believe in what I am doing, and I believe in the parent's right to choose what kind of education they want for their Children. My current school is now open and every single teacher chose to return for in person learning. We have made accommodations to our setups and schedules to be able to see our students in person and do our jobs well. On on our first class On your first day of classes, I was overwhelmed with emotion. As I stopped and thought about how grateful I was for being back in my classroom surrounded by the little people whose families I have dedicated my life to educate and served. In all fairness, I do have several friends that are probably schoolteachers to feel the same way I do about the necessity of having in person school. Unfortunately, they're not the loudest voices she goes on. It's heartwarming to know that many of the people in private schools in southern public schools actually care about being in the classroom and educating their kids. And I'm not sitting around being fraidy cats afraid they're going to get cold. While they continue the wide and belly ache and complain and then stand in front of the classroom and Make mockery Sze of their teaching profession by simply ideology, izing and spewing out their left wing radicalism. One of the reasons that I am a strong advocate of private schools. Even.

SpaceX Starship prototype explodes in test again - UPI News

"Bob is covering an explosion at starship well a planned explosion Bob very good evening to you planned for why good evening to you good evening thank you listeners I've completed my February happy birthday fundraiser and they were very generous I cannot express how I appreciate people giving their hard earned money for something that I give them for free I really appreciate that but all right yes starship there it is this is I don't know if the plant explosion John but starship is they're building a series of prototypes with the going to be testing stuff and part of the things that you're seeing is the welding the puts the stainless steel hold together and that is the whole is also the walls of their fuel and oxygen tanks they are probably doing a lot of pressure tests which means they sometimes will pressurize things to add to fans and we don't know if this was the plan here but either way what happened is and there's a great video you can watch a behind the black I posted the video of it of the thing during their prep teammates for what was supposed to be pressure test and then it suddenly explodes and they literally leaps off the test stand and then falls on the car and crashing into a a starship prototype they're already beginning to build a the next prototype and they're gonna do more pressure test they say they might do this pressure test with Laura so it's not explosive and middle initial literally they would just simply be testing to see if those welds he'll let the ever in hold every time they do the test they're going to be asking whether the wealth hold and see if they can get him get the technology right so that they can put together a whole with well welding it together so that it can hold the pressure is necessary for a fuel and we go from a man to craft to a robot craft this is Northrup Grummond and they have a robot looking to dock with the satellite why do they want such a thing well they haven't looked they've done it this is a big deal John this is a very big deal this is something originally being developed by no orbital ATK which was purchased and merged into north of Grohman it's called the mission extension vehicle on the going to build a series of these and it's literally it's a service they're offering to the telecommunications satellite industry and to others as well whereby you've got a satellite in geosynchronous orbit it's in perfect working condition except it's run out of fuel well the mission extension vehicle that levy can dock with it and it's the these satellites don't have docking ports but with the MTV does is it uses the nozzle of the synchronous satellite engine as its docking port and it has a finger that grabs the nozzle and a box with it and then the extension vehicle in the V. then provides guidance and attitude control for the satellite and so they docked with the satellite that was built something like thirteen years ago they did this last week the first docking ever done for it with no government funds commercial commercial robotics satellite docking with a second commercial satellite that was never intended to be docked that satellite in orbit flick it doesn't eighteen use can use and now it's colonel doctor who the five years and bring it back to life it had been decommissioned is now going to be put back into service and be used and they have additional LEDs they want to sell this is a big deal this is the first step towards robotic repair maintenance and also the cleaning up of space junk in orbit they demonstrated that robots can do this is one detail Bob about robots cleaning up I have the space debris there are servicing satellites it's almost impossible to make a distinction when it's in space between and anti satellite weapon and a robot that means to be a sanitation man yeah this is this is true well to a certain extent however the the the I have space treaty forbids interfering with another satellite that belongs to somebody else without permission and so far known as pro couldn't act and anti satellite it says you have the capability of doing such things in a war but if there's no war going on so far and everyone is respected that rule in terms of cases where you want to maintain or extend the life or fix a satellite you make a deal with North agreement by mission extension vehicle or bike time unlimited this one it's in orbit is going to be a doctor this satellite for five years and then after that it will separate and it'll be able to to another satellite five more years and they have more coming so yes you're right it could be anti satellite but I think that should not be a reason not to do this because of the benefits far outweigh the negatives highlights a new paper in March March twenty twenty coming in March twenty twenty for a symposium ahead of us if all goes well the small sent revolution doing more with less Bob this is what you've been reporting on for several years yeah it is it what happened was I attended last week for a day a CubeSats symposium here in Tucson and it was a supposing we actually had students and principal scientists and engineers talking about their actual cubes that projects that are really ambitious the day was going to write this up I get a press release from Washington DC about a similar conference that's going to happen in a few weeks in Washington but it's going to be the typical Washington conference that I attended in the past he gets some big names they talk in generalities which is not true untrue about this coming school keeps that rate of evolution but the truth of the matter is that I was much more effective activity interesting to go to the one in Tucson because I saw a whole bunch of things for example thank you talking about the developing large inflatable balloon and handers reflective in tennis that they can attach to cube seconds would be many times larger than keep that would allow for high gain data transfer they're talking about using CubeSats to do astronomy monitoring stars in a wavelength normally came to earth and another example is monitoring galaxies but this keeps it with corporate model one galaxy for a period of several months to get data about it it is cheap enough that you could send the second set to moderate different galaxy and so there's all these different kinds of technology development that was really cool is interferometry where you have multiple telescopes you come find the images well they're going to build a cubesat which we use three D. printing to print out to log long beams like thirty feet long connected to the central Kitsap and the three together will produce to Mary sixty feet apart it's like a giant giant space telescope and that was really cool about that is the three D. printing in space by a robot so the kids have to coming down and they're really indicating how the space industry is splitting between smaller and smaller for the on man's part the flight and bigger and bigger which is state of SpaceX's scholarship for the band projects and SLS SLS the space of the seventh launch system the space launch system that has been delayed many years and most recently Bob and I reported another delay that was expected so I can't tell whether this is a new delay Arnold delay restated how is it Bob well it's understandable you have problems like this done because when I saw this article I had to read carefully to make sure he just wasn't a reversion of the delay I talked with you about your posting a behind the black last week but yes this is an additional delay last week they had predicted that the delayed for they were going to live from November of this year to April of twenty twenty one well this week today it needed that April of twenty twenty one is just too ambitious so now they're looking at middle to late twenty twenty one which would and I've heard other reports saying late twenty twenty one which means it's a full year delay for the first SLS mission one man's mission if it happens in twenty twenty one late in that year they'll only have three years left to meet the trump administration desire to get a manned mission landing on the moon by twenty twenty four I personally don't think that the possible it's not gonna happen there's a lot of reasons why not both most of the most critical of all these conflicts have funded it and secondly the technology and NASA's ability to build it is very very slow Bob is the are the serial delays on purpose because they can see that they're going to have to stretch this out so they give us just a little bite at a time or is this really poor planning on their part they get surprised the answer is yes order quote yogi Berra when you come to a fork take it because it's both eight they knew almost to you three years ago that they would have to make these long delays but what they do is they they they trickled out the delays in little bits to try to reduce the political and public relations hits to doing so of it yes the whole point of excellence is not to exceed anything is to provide a jobs program to Pauline and being there and NASA over a period of time and the cost plus contract football means the best thing that could possibly happen is that it gets extended because they'll make a profit and I want to just get more money so it's both John bel if it's a bad bad bad bad bad Bob what is C. lunch all this is this is a long convoluted story the launch was originally a partnership of Boeing Russia and Ukraine it was a platform floating platform that you could use as a launch pad and they use your cranium rockets to launch office with Boeing in Russian technology and they did a few launches in the nineties and then had a failure and basically went bankrupt but we wanted out of the business it eventually got out of the business by Russia giving them free flights on the so he use capsule for passengers I don't know if they sold those flights to anybody maybe NASA but so the Russia has control over it is supposedly as a private company mailing comical as seven is going to build it to launch commercial satellites they finally have get taken possession of C.

The Amazing Physics of Baseball

"Or not you actually watch the sport. You have to admit that it's pretty hard to actually hit a baseball. In fact when you think about the physics behind what it takes to and knock a ball out of the park. It makes baseball players. Look like actual superheroes. So let's talk about the mountain research that goes into the science of the sport. Consider This a pitch takes about five hundred milliseconds to travel from the pitcher to the plate. Although a fastball can take as little as three hundred seventy five milliseconds. The moment the ball leaves the pitching mound. The batter is already at a disadvantage. That's because it takes his brain seventy five to one hundred milliseconds to even process the fact that the the ball is coming toward him. It also takes time to swing. The fastest swings in baseball happened in one hundred to one hundred fifty milliseconds that leaves only about one hundred it and fifty milliseconds for the batter to actually make a decision about his swing for some context. It takes as much as four hundred milliseconds to blink. That's right you have to decide how to swing in less than half the time it takes to blink and that's why researchers have poured countless hours and funding dollars into the study of that brief moment almond in time when they do that is by watching how players keep their eyes on the ball. A two thousand fourteen study found that until very late in the pitch players follow the ball wall with their head. Not just there is. There is only start moving when the ball gets really close and where their gaze goes is slightly different depending on whether they plan on swinging or not one other fun piece of research proved baseball. Legend Yogi Berra right. He wants said quote. How can you think hit at the same time unquote and researchers from Columbia University. Confirmed that you can't. They hooked up players. EG caps enrolled them into FM machines to analyze their brain signals as they watched touched a simulated baseball pitch on a computer screen. The researchers started seeing that when participants were getting the pitches wrong. They're using the frontal parts of their brain too much. The frontal parts of the brain are mostly involved in deliberate decision. Making when those parts get involved they slow down the speed of your decisions and when the difference between a hit and a strike is a matter of a few hundred milliseconds. You just can't afford to let your brain slow you down. Sounds like a touchdown for science. Yeah that's definitely a hole in one
