"That's why I'm asking you even though it's going to cost you potentially $140 million a record amount for a catcher. Would you lock him up now or see what the market bears and play our back him up now? And I think he's too valuable to the team for the next 34 years if we're looking to be a contender again in two years If we have a season? Yeah, along, Of course, if we have a season, but But here's the but here's what I don't like out. It's the Yeah, he's going to cost you a lot of money. We understand that every team Whether you like it or not, has a self imposed cap, even though there's not one for Major league baseball, and there's a generalized mindset. That's also what we can't sink all our money here and be very limited for the next couple years when there's other positions to address. Isn't there always positions to address everything have a shortcoming Every year Somebody gets hurt. Somebody doesn't perform. There's always something to address and you address it with your free agent market or the end of the season trade deadline with the rental or whatever. That's how it gets addressed. If you're a big market teams In the way it works when you have a guarantee when you have a known commodity such as Rome, Yuto I I don't understand why you would kind of dance around that, or at least imply that the way the klentak as if you want to play at this table. You have to live with your mistakes and buy your way out of him. It zips pretty apple. Joe, Do you have someone who's a must watch actually to the same sport? Give me given your own before you give me two. Give me your best one. Whichever one you think is best. John McEnroe Yon McEnroe How you covered tennis? He was growl of Lendl. Pack of lentil, but I love McEnroe was a black and he's one of I think the best analyst Well, maybe he and Barkley the best analysts on TV Now when you covered McEnroe ya and his antics when you would write a story about him. Would it be a small blip about his performance in the rest about his antics? No, no, he's a great player. No, I'm on Chris because most people who don't even follow to know about that more than the player itself. It was 10. No, he was a great player was he Was he like a spark plug when you speak to him on the court is terrific. Just terrific is he's one of the great characters in American sports history. Lose on W Good morning, Lou. Good morning. How are you? We're doing great. I gotta tell you, John unions and I absolutely love when you're at the helm there in the morning. It's a thrill for all of your your Jonesy. Jonesy. He brings out the best you He's like. He's a pip into your George. No, no, no, no, no, I'm his puns are bad. You're right. I am under that around. There may be more of a dentist Robin. That's out. Big guy's got. They definitely have two side Ah, real Muto, Especially because next year still up in the air with the contract, then maybe foolish, not. I feel like the longer this goes the worst. Worst chance they have, or is everyone else Since we're gonna be in a state both financially kind of goingto take a step back as well. Yeah, there's again. There's always going to be having said that there will always be at least one or two teams will take that chance that we'll spend that money on. Guy realizes, you know. Ricky Bo was pointing out earlier this hour and we were speaking to him about How Major League Baseball's have been outrageous for a number of years now, and they continue to increase..
Several MLB players opt out of 2020 season over virus, Philadelphia Phillies to test all players
"Of the biggest and most important news Corona virus aside. Focusing specifically on sports, probably in the next several weeks has to do with the Philadelphia Phillies. Yes, this week. Every player is being tested for Corona virus camp can get underway, possibly as early as this Friday. Some players who have already taken the test if the results come back early enough can work out at Citizens Bank Park as soon as tomorrow. I have something positive to say before I hold a phone place legitimate alert O R. Johnson, If you're home right now, alert Delaware Valley Yon Johnson. Can I going to say something? Positive. Well, it comes with a disclaimer. I have something positive to say before I place the general manager the Phillies on a rocket and send him into the positive news is that the Phillies announced They're going to pay all of their minor leaguers through the minor league season, of which there is no minor league season. So kudos to ownership for doing the right thing. They haven't no other. I don't think any other professional team in baseball has announced such a thing yet, but the Phillies are going to pay their minor leaguer, so kudos to
SpaceX makes history with successful rocket launch
"Let's talk about space we lost some will not I don't and and and a lot of firsts were involved in this first of all it it was a private space company SpaceX which started in I think two thousand two and Eli must company a private space rocket company they worked along side NASA they pick they basically SpaceX did the whole thing from start to finish they designed the rocket they designed the capsule and and these guys launch astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob bank in Bob and Doug they kept calling him on the launch I was watching the live feed and I could not not think about the SCTV scary for the movie strange brew with Bob and Doug McKenzie I can't want to calm hoser it it is I don't I I love this kind of stuff I think it's absolutely fascinating and if if you're like why are people making such a big deal about this because it was everywhere a bunch of people watched it everybody was talking about it I'm it it is it is really quite a remarkable thing and you've got these two seasoned astronauts right these guys are like that the commander dog is a marine pilot he's been to space a couple times this guy has flown he's docked with the international space station on his own he's manual controls that is a nearly impossible task it's not tried searching for I did I'll try searching for it on link then you will have a hard time finding this guy to hire they hired like one of the white people in the planet is the only got this particular job yeah in or off the planet he's the only guy but but this time they used computers they launching these if you saw any of the video it's this beautifully sleek cushioned capsule that they're in they have and I can explain why mom was a who owns SpaceX yon yep and if you look at the inside the capsule looks like it really does Tesla's known for having a steering wheel in a TV essential hand side and end up breaking out into the Aggie can't look out of gas pedal and accelerator pedal and that's what the inside of this without the accelerator pedal that's what the inside of this looked like it was all touch screen also not like what you the the the NASA space capsule that you have come to admire and from from movies it doesn't look like anything like that anymore it looks much much more modern it is what the future space flight in one of the significant things here is this is the the beginning of the privatization of space flight right the the way it used to work was was it's not like that there have been private contractors building the stuff if you work at Boeing you know Boeing's history of building major components of every space mission I'm going it was front center it doesn't really happen without bowing right and other American contractors who do who developed a high tech but it was all in the auspices in the funding of NASA this is different NASA was involved but essentially NASA was the contractor helping these guys get to outer space it becomes it's a very interesting reversal of roles and if you don't think that that Jeff Basil's and his blue origin was sitting out there both rooting for and against the wasn't reading I think Francis aster but he certainly wasn't rooting for massive success unless he feels like Hey there's it's a big universe there's room out there for all of us it was very very interesting to think about I mean for you one must love him or hate him in in you probably do both on the on any given month given the way the guy behaves getting a space program off the ground in from two thousand when it was it was too two thousand ten till now is a standing yeah without denial of land over rockets and you know it wise it really is kind of remarkable and this is if you or anything of a space junkie and I am this was a real historic day and worth seeing and on top of that like we talked about once before on the show there is a simulator where you can actually try to really high it's it's similar to what you can try and doc this thing on your own that is it marks up the similar it simulated that they used I don't know how many times I ended up into deep space on saleable or brand right into the space station because I couldn't get it done they used to have like a a simulator in Cape Canaveral in Florida and I went down there with my dad when I was a kid and he's a pilot he he's a commercial if he's one big jets and everything he gets in the similar I barely I mean he didn't he didn't do it he couldn't actually do but got really really close and he's like man that was like the hardest thing I've ever done right the space shuttle used to have I this is my favorite part of storage space shuttle used to have two thousand manual switches right and you're when you're an astronaut you flick and then you're doing all the stuff turn these this this has twenty from two thousand to twenty everything is touch screen and these guys Bob especially the commander he's an old school marine and at first he was like I don't know about all this because when you're wearing the big astronaut gloves and you're flipping switches and it's real important that those switches get flipped there's you know when you physically flipped it or toggled it or whatever it is that right with a touch screen he's he's like that took a lot of getting used to so the SpaceX people are like we got you Bob and they created like a like a little like bloom like when you touch the screen you see some sort of a visual indication well it is actually touched it's the whole thing in your phone we're so between the two at the haptic response to refer to it as when your phone buzzes or clicks right when you do that kind of stuff the reason that they keep the shutter noise in a camera what they don't need the center noise in the camera anyway all of these things are because we're so a **** waited to flicking that switch to feeling that resistance some sort of physical contact with it and so they just dumbing it up for our own company even though it's not necessary that's exactly what they did here everybody knows Houston as in Houston you have a problem mission control this is as Mike said not a NASA mission so mission control you with they heard they heard voices from Hawthorne California that's for SpaceX is based out of so this is just changing changing the whole game yeah I mean but you know Hawthorne has its own problems so I suppose in some point locally we never get to that point and it and I think that that's really what now so it was not built solely to make space a government enterprise but to alternately allow this sort of building to happen and I think NASA's done a really remarkable job of pivoting to what the future is in becoming sort of this agency to essentially becoming an incubator for private space right and that is actually not a dumb thing for for them to do and and now we have four companies and more in other countries that are actually buying for this for this sort of dominance it's a pretty interesting thing it really is it's one of those many things like we talk about in Seattle that underscores what it what it what a real setback it feels like for Paul Allen to have died because he was also involved in a project out of Syria and so a lot of a lot of effort now in the private sector of doing this thing but this thing being successful is good news for everybody including other companies that are competing with them because we needed to see it happen from a private company and I certainly hope that this is just the beginning of a really really interesting future
My favourite tennis match
"We'RE GOING TO BE KICKING OFF. A new series and looking at some of a favor owed time tennis. Matches will also be catchy on the tennis news as well a little bit catch on with the virtual Madrid Open. That's just happened Andy. Bari Packard a virtual school as well as the news. The tennis is actually starting up again in some parts of the world in Germany. But before we get into that Kim how you doing. How is how is lockdown? Treating much the same as last week H. O. By fairly fast actually despite the lack of store which is really weird. I think I've kind of just go used to it now but having said that I did cheat in worship Madrid. I didn't won't should awful. I have to say it was. Radi my cup of tea just kind of saying it on a playstation today. What is g thing? Yeah it was a bit of kind of a completely new scenario new situation and I think it's kind of recognizes that living in these times they can open up new opportunities and of course you know this is one of them in the tennis world and I thought it was kind of really interesting to say I think in terms of what I liked. I absolutely loved the place. Be BUYING INTO IT. And procreating like the war codes Up there that the herbs to the controller I really loved that I'd like pretending to warm up thumbs and I really liked the way that kind of the players go invested in it and we're kind of really enthusiastic about getting creative and and kind of showing it off on on social media See I think that was kind of one of the things I I really liked. I saw I think it was Belinda. Bench really went. Allow it like a tennis gear. As I said could walk up the stairs a yeah just thought it was great to see getting really enthusiastic about it. 'cause we've not seen them on a TV. We're not seeing the you know what she pilots. Whatever as fans over the last few months it's just almost kind of great great to see them again really. Yeah I thought that was. That was good like the best saying the players saying the engage with the wall. I thought bench probably owned that one. I just like the little bits in the corner. We can just see their faces as they're playing. You just want to see their homes in the pack right to see what what. They've gone like their bookshelves or like. I just find it really interesting is like through the Keyhole. But he the past and that is really hyping. The stands framed in the background. Well potentially coming up in this focus on his lovely shorts but no yeah I. I didn't really like actually watching this. Nsa Watch just liked having the players kind of interacting having a bit of a laugh so that was nice to see the thing. This format would. I didn't think I'd want to see this every week. I think it would get a bit repetitive. After a while but I think it was a good kind of one off thing and obviously Andy Murray one that we should give him credit for that because he's now won the tournament on three different surfaces. If you can cool the virtual sphere surface adolphus. The Andy has donated his prize. Money half is going to the NHS and half is Gordon to the players Relief Fund. So it's obviously for Good Kohl's and Kiki burdens won the women's event as well and I think she was actually due to defend. Muhtar to say she has succeeded into that are mixed in our love. I love that idea. She's she's the non virtual virtual back to back very innovative. Double D for a champion. But yeah I think yes kind of great to see I guess. Play his Getting involved I think one of the things that I think they could have done. Better way of is the had this common tree over the top of the of the players. Now I I was kind of the point where I think it's more insightful. And more interesting if you just let the play is very commentary because Y- They are tennis players that professionals at the end of the day you'll be ready. I think what bringing up level is kind of almost kind of getting them to kind of talk about the tactics or you know that sort of that sort of level that sort of layer that. Yeah well my sick on a Royal Corps And it's like if I was doing this show in real life. I would choose to go here because of X. Y. And Said Yeah. It could be more of an educational thing as well I think what I did. I cheat and they lost connection because I was watching on light-years addicts correct show. It was just having to could LE- sort of chats while they were waiting for everything to ten on again. Did you see the I think Diego Schwarzer was best. Play at Deborrah. The savvy FIDO's but due to a weak WIFI CONNECTION. Debry a sorry. Schwartzman had to concede walkway. So I mean I love that idea. The like I think that's going to be one of the VAD. The walkover reasons happens to the best of our good today that like even top tennis players have poor Wi fi and all safely on. La has had a bit of a Jake because he said that Rafa could play because he'd like injured his back reaching for his game controller. Which and everyone believes here. I think I mean I think we believed him as well. As we've always believed tweeted about be cowed they gig for Geria- saw and I thought this this off to the best of the fortunately that was not the case. Rafeh was able to play. But we'll just very gullible but yeah if they're going to do this again like I think it could cost you on. But just every now and again maybe they do in other Walden on like Wimbledon. I different surfaces. I assume this playstation game has all the different surfaces they do girl scout one. Couldn't they maybe federal workup? That yeah that I think it could work. I think it could coexist when the tools get back up and running. I wonder if it's a sort of you know in the in the grounds of the events and you have fans can go line up for like an autograph from players and I wonder whether you could be like. There's a stand somewhere grandson for example. Oh face off against some. I player playing tennis against them. Virtually Sake I could see that happening. I know there are a few comments. The game was almost up to like up to scratch And you know whether it's the improvements to be made with with the game and you know I think I think potentially peop- governing bodies like the ATP liked the W. H. E. A. Maybe they should be looking at partnering with Game's about to really kind of Mak- licensed game like fever. Because I think you know I think this is as you said. This is very new is almost kind of this was a test and you know. I think there is appetite for it but I think there's almost kind of a lot can be done on that so a product side of it. Yeah for sure. I'm sure that's an avenue. They could possibly see going for. It's an yeah I like the idea that you could maybe have a bit of a play on it while you are an event. Perhaps if during a rain delay or something and even on Joe we actually have some real tennis. That's happened this weekend in Germany. It's kind of the first actual players of setback on cool so they've done a little exhibition featuring Dustin Brown and seven other players including randomly the British benign. Yon Shouldn't ski. Who I think is based in Germany. Anyway so yeah. That's been happening this weekend. We'll see JEB. So you fall head of other countries. Getting back to normalcy. So they've been out to do this. Little event Neko blends at the Base Tennis Academy. It's GonNa oversee how necessary health and safety measures in place. So they've obviously not touching hands at the net. They're going to touch rockets instead. There's no ballboys fans line judges. They're obviously doing it. Very watered down version is not for any points or or anything. It's not count I guess. Prize money's involved. So it's I guess aimed at lower ranked players to to kind of keep them earning something during this time and I think it's only for players based within about ninety minutes of the event so it's overseas a very limited
How Moto keeps winning: A conversation with Motorola's Doug Michau
"I I. I can only imagine that. It's it's really tough to You know to to plan a product launch and and and do all of the logistics that go into it with without actually having access to people and locations and all that stuff and I'd I'd love to just get a quick sense of you know whatever you can tell us about. You know how this process has been planning a phone launch where you know you can't really have people at at an event together and what have what have you been doing a little bit differently than you normally would have. Yes Oh absolutely It starts of course with having a very rigorous schedule and making sure that we meet in a very regular cadence so Typically obviously you have face to face meetings in an office and so we try to use different platforms At literally we typically use Microsoft teams or skype. And so basically what we've seen is that instead of just the face to face meetings we've met Reno remotely online and we tend to actually meet quite more white More often now just because we do have the time. And there is some of the distractions if you think about it from work from home are gone such as the travel and so it did allow for us to meet a lot more frequently in the nice thing is that everyone schedule is it's more conducive to meeting Online and we actually get full participation. So there's definitely been I would say a lot more Scheduled meetings and both with our global partners as well as her north. America's well so we're talking Today of course about the new G launch Motegi Power Emoji stylus. And I guess you know I'll I'll jump right in to to my first question. Which is you know there. There are a lot of ways to to have a phone standout in the market. Today the Mortgagee Line is always stood out for its combination of price and features and just accessibility in the US in particular. The phones are often compatible with all of the carriers and You just got a lot of value for money. I was really surprised to see that. The sort of flagship motor. Gee this year at least for the. Us was a phone with a stylus and Why why make that decision? It's been Something that I've enjoyed using over the last little bit but What was the thought process that went into making that the the sort of the flagship Motegi of Of of this year's generation sure let me back up. Just one step before answering that question. So as you said put the motivation franchise from Motorola has always been those give those aspirational features at a very affordable price point. And we're always looking at. How do we challenge? How do we push the envelope to really provide in a lock that value for consumers and for us Each generation of products we go through a complete evaluation. We do a lot of consumer research to find out. What are the consumer pain points? How do we deliver more value than the competition and we also obviously work with our retail interior partners in doing so But but one thing with the Stylus as we head evaluate this in the past and looking at what the options were to consumers. Today we saw a very expensive A stylus product out there and again with the Moto G. We're trying to see. How do we bring that in two amid here a value conscious or smart ticshop consumer and so It's been a evaluation why In Two Thousand. Twenty where releasing stylus of the time does seem to be right in the past. You've had productivity and some creativity option to use with a stylus as far as you know you can. It has a very fine point. Do Calligraphy you could do no taking. You can do some video editing. But more so than that. What we're seeing. Is this whole trend with you. Know the social in it's more than just Social posting a photo to say an application like facebook or If you think about an instagram user it's almost impersonal. If you just send someone a photo nowadays you almost have to send a photo you want to annotate it to say you know what the event was or what. You're feeling was at that time and to try to do that with a finger. We thought was a little bit cumbersome and then we also looked at the usability of doing that with a finger while holding it in another hand. What we found is as a screen sizes bigger to it just. It was just a lot. More natural to use the Stylus to annotate a photo and send it over to say like hey look who I met in. La this week known. You put a picture of a movie starring you could write something on that photo You know something like that We find this really interesting especially if you look at even like the growth of snapchat and placing stickers on some of your post all of that that the finer editing is so much easier when you have the stylus to do it and so if you look at the productivity creativity and now you've got the social aspect it just seemed like this was the right time with their be a greater appreciation for having Silas and that mid range smartphone device. The follow up to that. Is You know there's a lot of? I guess there's a bit of education understand what a stylus can do. They understand that. It enables drawing but from a A feature perspective you do have an overlay where you can. You can see what is possible right away after you take out the STYLUS There's a note app you can annotate screen shots and things like that. How do you decide from a software perspective? What to focus on. Obviously you know you mentioned the much more expensive competitor. I mean the the Galaxy note series is a thousand dollars. This is clearly less than half of that. How do you make sure that you're giving people The kinds of software features that they expect from a stylus and keep them wanting to use it. Because I think that's one of the concerns that a lot of people have with a phone like the galaxy note is that it's just a feature that you use every once in a while and then you forget it exists. Yes cigarette when we Did Our stylists. It was more than just putting a stylus into a device. So there's been a lot of consumer research we did including bring in users in in trying out different stylists like we do a blast. Finish on it so that it's easier to hold on hand. We look at the sign of the weight of it to make sure that was very ergonomically comfortable so that the user is going to want to keep on using that Stylus Rather than us at once and say it's something like a Gimmick and then yon that though so we made sure that when you when you take the device each week at this floating window and you can quickly access and up to five. Applications repeated. Low that window with three But it's fully customizable by the user and so obviously you know one of the great things about having a stylus if you think about it Your student classroom going to a seminar. It's just taking notes. I mean that's one of the you know. The most Is Flap location of the Stylus that you can get fined granularity by just quickly writing Without having to use your finger or try to keep what really quick or you might not be able to keep up so what we've done with that with the Moto. No it is that we have this nice little to toward about how to use it. You do a lot of different customization with for example if you're an engineering student put a great background. If you're just taking notes you can put kind of that. The college rule type of paper as a backdrop for that then you could save those Another follow though. Is that like you said earlier. Just annotating photos and and marking them up and putting kind of your feelings thoughts on it so we do allow that as well as even screen snapshot is one of the things in there so you can take a snapshot of your screen and quickly overlay notes on there as well and then just we try and keep providing value to the consumer with Saleh's well so even when your screen is often it's a lock screen you could allow it to basically take notes in that lot screen mode and that plays into our rich heritage in the past features. We had of the Moto display feature so definitely with a Stylus for making sure the we hit the ergonomics of it that we hit the utility of it And then as well as we have little reminders in there as well so if you remove the stylish pop up the floating toolbar the device and if you forget to put the stylus back in it'll set a reminder as well then it also records. Gps location goal as time. The styles is removed. So you don't lose your Stylus as well so you can continue to keeping joining
Spencer Murray Jumps Into The Podcast
"All Right Folks. Thank you and welcome back to the draws cast. I'm very excited to be with you again. I hope that you've been continuing to listen to the draws cast. We have some great interviews that we've downloaded over the last couple of weeks and have another great interview Here today with me He is the GM at the Briar Woods Country Club and a city just outside of Buffalo New York called Hamburg and his name is Spencer. Murray and Spencer and I know each other through some work that we've done together through the National Restaurant Association and we've been working on getting Spencer on the show for quite some time so Spencer Murray. Welcome to the Dr Cast. Hey thanks for having me Jeff. It's good to finally make this happened with you. I'm looking forward to to get into it with you yet. It's going to be great A previous podcast. I had a gentleman by the name of Aaron. Primo on and I called him a Whiz Kid. Because he's done quite a bit. In his years that he's been a Professional Anaconda put you into that group Not so much because your age because frankly I don't know how much or how old you are. You don't need to tell me that but I think that you've done a lot for the number of years that you've been making a living for yourself. So that's another reason why I wanted to have yon of the draws cast so So before we get your professional cry like to kind of set it up and find out a little bit of background about the people that are interview so Where did you grow up. What city specific did you grow up in? Sure so starting I'll tell you I'm thirty one so that we can get that out. Okay well then. You can be a whiz kid concerning. Yeah Yeah for me. That's a whiz kid. And I look sick. Buffalo New York in just the suburbs village called Williamsville. Just fifteen minutes outside of the city. You know. My my dad was a military guy. He was in the eighty second airborne and a he was a Jag officer as well too. So a military lawyer And my brother sister or at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then my dad moved up to buffalo to start his own private practice as an attorney so I was born here in Buffalo born and raised here and Most of my career. I spent seven years at a at a breakfast restaurant here. Most people are aware of if you've ever heard of the original Pancake House. Yeah I spent seven years as a kid started when I was first job. I worked at a P. It's a place I was fourteen years old. I made five bucks cash under the table and I they let me run the police that it was just kind of just got it at an extremely young age and learned how to deal with people then started as a dishwasher at original pancake. How listen and then throughout college and somebody's work. I Work Sides Washer. We'd orange juice plus boy creative people as host and just went through all. That was kind of my start hospitality and stuff but I love this area. I'm a diehard bills. Fan Bills Mafia. We're we're out here representing and I've lived away a couple of different places and now back. So you're part now is did you say it was the Buffalo Mafia or the bills Mafia bills? Yeah I had heard that term before. That's pretty interesting So that was going to be a question of mine if you were an a sports fan for the sports that are in the buffalo area but it sounds like it a yeah. I usually if you're from Buffalo. You're you're a big bills and the sabres kind of life around here whether we're good or bad and you say bad but we're good fans and we have a lot of fun so having been to buffalo a few times myself For those of you out there who are listening that have never been to Buffalo Niagara Falls is what would you say about twenty minutes? North of Buffalo. Was that about right? Yeah so Niagara Falls is right there. But Buffalo's got a really cool young vibe to it Especially as you get down into the city. Downtown so If they've had a really good kind of revitalization of the city over the last five six years and it's really taken this kind of artistic beautiful and just driven approach to making the city. Great you know the the food culture here is amazing. The People here are great. It's called the city good neighbors and and I love it. Here this is this is certainly western. New York is is my home and a Lotta. Yeah and it's very different Then you know people when they think of New York they think of New York City. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit but there's so much more to the states of New York and Michigan than people realize because they just focus on that one area buffalo in western New York people. Are you say you must go to New York City all the time like seven and a half hours away from here? I can make it to Chicago in almost the same amount of time per se and I can be in West Virginian. Yeah exactly so. It's very different but I encourage. I don't work for the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce but and I'm getting no money from them for this interview but I can't tell you that it's a good place to visit if you're looking for places to go The summer or even in the wintertime. Because you you work at a country club but it also acts as a ski resort to my correct about that though so where I live. I live in a town about an hour. South of Buffalo called Eligibility York and it is awesome magical Kurowski town and there's two ski resorts that are so why I snowboard side. Love the winters play. Before this I worked I managed a restaurant in ski jump on so my busy season was winter and now the golf course. That's kind of flipped the script you know so I enjoy winter a little bit more so now but definitely work a little bit harder in the summertime now but no but we're connected I mean like I said I live in his ski town which is awesome. Actually New York has the most ski resorts I think out of any state country number wise. And it's great out here okay. That's great so now you are the GM of the Brier Country Club and we've established that you've worked at the International not the International House pancakes but the original house of pancakes. And that's kind of. Yeah and that's how you got started In your professional life How is it that you went from early management? Even though you shouldn't have been managing that original house of pancakes how did you get from there to the GM of the brier would country club? I can give you a little outline and just kinda how it went so Actually have a history degree. I played Lacrosse in college. I got a scholarship to pull les division to Ross at Franklin Pierce University I was always a history nerd. Grownups and I didn't really know what I wanted to do So my my major. I just decided to take history. I liked it. I played the cross. I thought I'd be the cool history teacher and coach at the school Had that kind of plan out but then I realized that time I kind of liked history. More a hobby rather than something. I wanted to do every day but at that point. I kind of knew I just wanted to do something involving hospitality. Entertainment an Kind of a not a shy guy and I went to small school for comparison. It just know in working in those kind of environments that the original packing house and stuff you just. I just learned how to deal with people but you had to these environments. So that's why I wanted to do so. I graduated. College became a food supervisory Internet. Six flags theme park in Springfield Massachusetts. I were a looney tunes tie and Khaki Pants and a short sleeve blue button down so you have yourself a six flags they mess and those kinds of things and I did that for a summer that I moved back home and I became assistant manager at the ritual. Pancake House at this place. You know the way you come in. It is the busiest Brecca's place all the area and it was one host which was myself still wore Khakis at that time. Couldn't get away from it. I guess And Green Pole and and everybody came in their name on a dry erase for it and that was the wait list for the thing and everybody just stare at you and here. I am this young kid and deal with all these adults different people and everybody's hungry after church. The breakfast in Hama just taught me a great deal of patients and just kind of savviness of just kind of dealing with people of all different ages and expectations

There were whispers that some of his patients had been given a kind of help that they didn't ask for as the babies conceived became adults. They began to ask questions about where they came from and what happened to their mothers at the clinic. My mother had to tell everybody the true story but it was never meant to be told. I said this acclaiming. Un through look mom. There's something wrong I'm Jenny Klieman. I'm a journalist and for the past few months. I've been trying to find out exactly what happened in combats clinic. This is the whole thing. The whole question of went on here for the moment. I have one hundred.

"Their economy swine flu. Hit It army worms in so many other things. Their economy is not in the best shape if their economy collapses my guess the Chinese Communist Party will probably collapse. Why would the Chinese Communist Party collapsed if they can't force their will on Hong Kong? How does that really work? Oh Not Hong Kong specifically for instance when the Soviet Union collapsed. They didn't claps simply because of Poland. It was a problem. Set the courage of Poland spread. Check people the Slovakians and Hungarians are already pretty courageous to begin with courage and cowardice both spread it military leaders know this if you show cowardice in front of your men or women it'll spread like a virus right if you show courage it will spread like a virus we saw Poland. Did their courage spread. You know where it spread to. It spread the square is spread all across the East block all the way over to China that uprising. These general uprisings against communism is part of what led to them in square. That's all part of a larger context right. Kinnamon square wasn't just an internal thing to China. That was a general uprising against communist everywhere in their back. Hong Kong uprising and the courage that they have shown first of all. It's gotten a lot of tension. This very small group of people standing up that standing up China that gets a lot of respect from people. Look how that virus spread over to Taiwan again. The Taiwanese people are courageous. To begin with the Taiwanese. People are very smart. They're just as smart as Hong Cars Super Intelligent people and they're also very courageous or they would not have stood up to China this long but look what happened. On January eleventh elections there was a landslide. Fifty seven percent went for the DP and that was clearly. A huge amount of wash came out of Hong Kong in wash right over Taiwan instead. Look we need to stand up and Taiwanese stood even stronger than they have before. So what can the rest of the world do? If China starts to really clamp down on Hong Kong watching this on CNN and seeing people beat down by their own police force it's tough and realized when we see that in certain countries that we can't do anything but when we look at a country that has a history of democracy and trade and is doing well economically like Hong Kong. That's really tough to watch. Is there anything we can do as citizens that would make any bit of difference? One thing is to encourage our elected. Officials are this case. The president and of course are senators and representatives to clamp down politically and economically China. To support for instance. The tariffs have been very helpful for us in many ways. Of course we're in a war with China's just a low grade war and we have to be willing to take some abuse to take out the CCP. We're GONNA live with China Times. Go on the same with the Soviet Union in the Russians. We're GONNA live with the Russians but we didn't have to live with the Soviet Union right we don't have to live with the CCP anything that we can do to undermine the prestige the economy and the power the military economic and political power and the prestige of C. C. P. is something that should be on the table and we should be hitting every day in big ways and small and we don't have to depend on the government to do it anything that individuals can do Francis not buying products from China. They don't have to get but these days it's very difficult for Americans Francis many of the products that we need to operate on are made in China. And there's no other choice other than to get those from China. Many of the smartphones for instance are made in China. Many of the computers are made in China. Robert Spalding Him. You've interviewed before. He mentioned in his book. Stealth wars that are propellant for our Hellfire missiles we are dependent on China for the propellant. I'm not sure of the details. There I remember this vaguely. I think it was an ingredient in part of the propellant. And then there were other things like optics night-vision there's some sort of rare earth metal that's required that we get from China even though the rest of the item is made in the United States. And we can't really do anything without that rare earth metal. It won't work the same. So they can just simply clamp down these very rare earth metals. These specific ingredients that we need and we've effectively broken the chain because the weak link is this supply chain from China so we can stockpile it all we want. But in a protracted conflict that won't matter what those are not game indoors for us. They're just threats that we need to address. We've conjoined. Our economies. Such in China has attacked us in so many ways for so long that we can't just decouple. Suddenly I mean I would love to get out the apple ecosystem because I use apple products even for an individual. Like me is not as simple as like. I'll just replace all my stuff with non apple I can do. It just takes time now. Imagine that on a national scale and you got trillions of dollars flying around. That's just an example right. Apple's not something that you need to get rid of because dot dot China you're just using the example of being in an ecosystem when you refer to Apple Right Both I mean. They make a lot of their products in China. That's for sure it's funny. How Apple sometimes has these tussles with. Fbi about releasing making back door so the FBI can get into apple products. Does anybody really think that apple being made and sold in China? Iphones being sold in apple price sold in China. Do they really think that the CCP doesn't have a back door? Why would China be selling millions of IPHONES? Allow them to be sold within China without a back door so the people can have secure. Communications doesn't even make sense. We know how China operates so inclosing. Here how long do you think this is going to last in Hong Kong? Do you see this wrapping up after a few months or do you think the next few years are going to be punctuated with unrest in Hong Kong. Probably years. But we don't know what the Wuhan virus going to do. What effects of all these other issues Chinese Communist? Party's problem set. How much are they going to factor in how well as their economy going to do after this virus in the tariffs and the other things because of the Chinese Communist Party if they can't maintain security and Prosperity? Which is the two things they promise? How much are they going to have? What Hong Kong has to do is out last the Chinese Communist Party like a yawn. Thank you very much any time. It's been a great year questions. Incredible anytime that you need me. Just reach out big. Thank you to Michael Yon. His website will be linked in the show notes as well shortly after recording this he was actually barred from entering Hong Kong. He is now in exile so to speak and that to me is a little bit crazy. I mean if you're obviously doing something right when you can't even go back to the place you were covering because you're making everybody a little bit edgy. Getting everybody in a twist.

"I compared often to Poland and they were in a very difficult situation as well where this authoritarian Soviet Union Poland wanted to split off from it bottom line. Poem did succeed in the end. After lot of struggle went on for years. I tell Hongkongers that all the time Hong Kongers are in a hurry to be in a hurry. You're Hong Konger. So you're like New Yorkers you're always like oh we'll get it done by noon. It's like you won't get this done by noon. It won't be done by June won't be done by Christmas. This is a long process. You will not suddenly win. That's just not going to happen. You have to be patient. You have to be courageous which they are. They're learning patients. They're very super intelligent people. I've never seen people fight with their mind as well as Hong Kong For instance with their information campaign they got the United States to pass the human rights and Democracy. Act in record time between June and Thanksgiving of two thousand nineteen because president trump finally signed off after the House and Senate made. They're very positive. Votes for the Human Rights and Democracy Act and then president trump signed off. I think Thanksgiving right before. And that was record time and that was all because the Hong Kong are so good at messaging and they got the key people in the United States to pay attention and they got me on an airplane and others are still coming so yeah. They're very good mind fighters but they're going to have to be patient. Why might this destabilized China? You mentioned Poland. You mentioned similarities. Between what's going on in Hong Kong and the Solidarity Movement in Poland. I know the this is your area of expertise but why might something that's happening in one little area destabilize China okay? There's a problem set in. Hong Kong is just part of that problem. Set there so many problems on China's big board for instance right now they have gone virus. That's a serious problem. They've had the swine flu. They've had the tariffs they've had Jin Jiang problems in that so many problems if their economy classes as happened with the Soviet Union than Hong Kong suddenly is in a position to become independent. But the main thing to do is don't give up and continue to struggle and wait for your moment of opportunity. Poland didn't just beat back the Soviet Union and get free. They didn't Soviet Union had a huge problem. Set for instance Afghanistan. They had invaded Afghanistan and through the United States through the CIA and in the US military's. Well we were supplying Stinger missiles and other things through Pakistan and a lot of aid Saudis. Were helping with direct aid and they also manipulated oil prices because a huge amount of the Soviet economy's based on oil so we spend a lot of their military there in Afghanistan and we were bleeding them and then president. Reagan you know. His strategy on Soviet Union was not containment but destruction of the Soviet Union. Not Containment everybody else have been less contain them. Ronald Reagan showed up containment. Hell we're going to knock him out so he started doing all these different things. For instance pinning them enough Ghanistan and then attacking their economy in every direction that he could. We got help from the Saudis manipulating oil prices. He did the Sti Strategic Defense Initiative which was star wars did a huge buildup of the US. Military the Soviets tried to keep up with us on the military buildup and they couldn't do it and then we did sanctions against the Polish economy. So the problem said that the Soviet Union faced was enormous. It was growing as suddenly their economy. Just couldn't take it anymore. And boom and to hyper inflation. Kicked in Soviet Union fell apart and without really firing shot. Will that happened with China. Pretty high probability will happen without firing shot. Let's roll the dice. Nobody knows roll the dice. My guess is that it would be violent. My guests on the Soviet Union with that it would have been violent but it was not heavily violent anyway but the bottom line is is if we don't crack. Tcp Now they're just getting bigger and they're getting stronger. They're gonNA eventually at this rate. Try to take Taiwan through military force if necessary and eventually they're just growing in so we're GONNA have to face from now now's the time so this is why. Americans should care because this has economic implications it has frankly freedom and democracy implications for not only our friends and allies in Asia but all the world oh absolutely absolutely I mean the Soviet Union which at its peak I think had maybe a third of the economy of the United States will still extremely influential and China is almost on parody economically. They're very powerful economically right and they are extremely aggressive. A lot people can say this or that about the United States who haven't really studied up much what's happened since World War. Two the United States is always in some more. Of course we are. That's just we've been war almost every year since the United States was born in seventeen seventy six but at the same time our presence in for instance Europe has brought Europe from being basically the Middle East Europe was worse than the Middle East today. We're always like looking at the Middle East. It's this. It's that Bats Europe before the United States. Plant the troops all over the place right. China's not like that when China's going to Africa in different places they're just squeezing them dry whereas the United States you went to East Germany. I was in East Germany as well. The Difference Between East Germany and West. Germany were incredible. I've spent about four years in Germany right Chicago. Yep so I spent four years in Germany and another couple of Poland every communist country. They're just squeezed in just drained of everything. It's a terrible place to live. It's like one step away from actual hell right in so in China when they're going to places like Africa. They're squeezing on polluting. The place look how polluted China's when you go to China. It is unbelievable. It's like you need a machete to cut through the smog even in Beijing which is not their most polluted city. It's unbelievably polluted. Imagine what they'll do to rivers in Africa. Imagine what do in South America in Mexico and other places as they tried to gain influence. No we need to crack them now and not put it in terms either. Like oh we're just trying to contain them. We're just trying to teach them. We've tried to teach them for generations. Do you think the corona virus is going to put a damper on the protests in Hong Kong? We sort of touched on this earlier. Are People going to be scared to go out? I mean this is already in Hong Kong. It's already in the area. It may put a damper on temporary just due to Dorrell biological reasons but it's not long to end it because there's an insurgency and the Hong Kong are so energized and mobilized at this point that they're just not going to suddenly quit the other insurgencies that I've been in and the others that I studied them have not been in. Sometimes you'll see periods for instance Poland. You'll see periods where they can of wax and wane right. You might even argue. That two thousand nine hundred nine in June was not the real kickoff for this look at the two thousand fourteen umbrella revolution in Hong Kong. So I mean that was kind of really a big kickoff there and then there was other things before two thousand nine there are other things happen. Hong Kong and they just keep growing and getting bigger and bigger so even if this were to go dormant for a while you'll be making a bad bet to think that it's over thinking the Sod Andrea's fault is finished. You mentioned before Chinese information war and to understand information where you have to understand insurgency trying to understand one without the others like trying to understand. Physics without math is what you told me before we kick things off here. I know you wrote an entire book about this. So it's going to be tough for you to probably put this in a little container here but tell us about what Chinese information war means. This is beyond like broadcasting radio station or having a couple of news reports or a newspaper. There's more to the story here. This is such a massive global effort right more specifically to understand insurgency must understand information war. There is no insurgency. Without information war. There are many information wars without insurgency information wars going on. We are in the middle of them all the time. Information wars around us or like going into a crowded stadium in all those different voices year but there are some that drown out all the others are most of the others in one of those. Is the Chinese information more. Like for instance persuading the world that Taiwan is part of China and that Hong Kong is part of China. Persuading the dog is part of China. A lot of us a Jedi. Mind trick right well. The South China Sea is actually Chinese. Because of this that and the other and the thing is is they get maps redrawn. They sponsor museums have been too many of those museums. Fate will build an information ecosystem that is so vast so wide and deep tall. You don't realize that you're in it. The information more is all from China is about gaining world dominance so there's many sub campaigns to either split Francis Japan from creator of written about that extensively and then to split career from the United States and to split Japan from the United States because at Defense Triangle between Japan Korea and the United States is crucial for Asia and so they target that particular. They have not been successful in their targeting of the relationship between Japan. The United States. Our relationship is very strong. And it's not getting weaker strong as it's ever been when you say museum exhibits and things like that before. We did the show. You were mentioning that. There are museum tours where the Chinese Communist Party will invite museum curator's from all over the world and show them alternative facts like a Chinese version of world history. That's so subtle and so non obviously propaganda but still completely skewed. You don't really detect the bias. Because in many ways the history is more or less sound. It's just very very skewed and it sounds innocent enough like it. Sounds like every country probably does that for their own reasons. But you're saying this is more nefarious. Oh Yeah the information. Campaigns are so big one of the things that they do is they pick subjects that cause you to automatically start fighting about that subject and stop talking about what they're doing like Holocaust denial if somebody says that never happened. I'm like your fricken Moron Right. Winger like I'm rising anything. You say exactly exactly to understand the current narrative you have to understand the context again without context. There's no truth. Most people believe that Japanese actually kidnapped two hundred thousand women which is complete bullshit. It did not happen. There were comfort. Women that's true cover women are called Yang Fu and Japanese language in the brothels or called Jonjo. They had them here. Thailand as well as you may know. Career was part of Japan between nineteen ten and nineteen forty five. There were Korean women that were used as prostitutes during the war. And it's a very sensitive issue for Koreans and Japanese both and it's a hot button issue and it sounds like what you're saying is China's using this issue to form a wedge between Korea and Japan because a weaker set of Asian allies means a stronger China. Relatively speaking right. The Chinese created this issue. Which did not ever exist. It really started in the nineties in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. A Japanese author name Yoshida Osagie. He wrote a book called my war-crimes. He said that he kidnapped. Think about two hundred and three women on Jeju Island. Which is off. The southern tip of South Korea now immediately a bunch of Korean historians and Japanese journalist two Jaju and tried to find..

"Any combat experience. I'm like you're out of your mind. I mean that may have been true fifteen years ago or something but I mean right now so the American generals. I know they've seen more freaking combat than saving private Ryan. We have been at continuous war since two thousand and one think about that. This is two thousand and twenty. We've been in continuous wars since two thousand and one there's guys out there done six eight ten combat tours like Eric. He did combat every year that I know of from two thousand four to about two thousand sixteen or so something like that or may have been more but like every year combat even as he increased in rank he would still be out there. Wow Yeah let's discuss Hong Kong a little bit since that's your current focus and that's where you are essentially based now and we all know there's some big protests going on there right now but. I want to start with a little background on Hong Kong itself. It was handed off from Britain after. What one hundred years? Can you tell us a little bit about that kind of thing because a lot of people don't really understand how Hong Kong China also kind of not? Okay it's not China the whole what is China and what is not as a huge brainwashing operation from China. They're redrawing maps. Maps that are sold in the United States are made in China. For instance the Mobile Globes those Globes are actually made in China in China forced that company to include Taiwan for instance is part of China right and find them forty thousand dollars because they had been making. Globes did not include Taiwan as part of China. Right so this whole math. Redrawing in history redrawing sorta thing people started coming over from the mainland about four hundred and fifty years ago or so into Taiwan. My family started coming to America in sixteen O nine. I'm not British. I'm American in the Taiwanese who went there four hundred years ago and four hundred and fifty years ago around that timeframe. They're not Chinese anymore. And then there's others of course who came after World War. Two due to the nationalist Communist fight China. They're constantly lying. They discovered this virus for instance as much as they could announce the new way to cover it up like Soviet Union tried to cover up Chernobyl for awhile but you know they rewrite history any show of support for Hong Kong or Taiwan. If the Chinese Communist Party can get to you in some way they'll do it whether it's economic or political or in some cases. Put you in jail if you happen to be in their country. They'll certainly do the Chinese on a daily basis. And so yeah so the idea that it's part of China is not up to what Chinese Communist Party decides it comes down to how you can enforce your will or not ultimately the world's still plays on the law of the jungle bottom line if you don't have the power to defend your land and there's somebody that wants to take it they can take it and they will take it if they're that sort of person so China is expanding. They've taken to bet you know what they're doing John with the wieghorst genocide. They're trying to take Taiwan. Which is clearly a sovereign nation. You see many people frequently. Why doesn't Taiwan just declare independence? I say we'll think about it. That would be like New Zealand? Declaring independence from South America first of all South America is not a country. It's a place like China but somebody can come together like the South American Communist Party. Let's say in say Paraguay and Uruguay and Ecuador. And all these places are all one country especially what China's done over in Asia and they say in New Zealand is our old territory right and then people would say why doesn't New Zealand Declare. Independence is because they were never part of south. America and Taiwan has never been part of China never ever so to declare independence would be sort of acknowledged that you were at one point part of that country which gives credence to the claim that they were originally your government. Yeah exactly that would be counterproductive to declare independence when you just are independent date. Say but yeah but you have our jeans. You're basically were of the same genetic stock and therefore you fall under our authority. That's what they say to Chinese in America is well. That's terrifying having a kid who's half Taiwanese and a wife who's full taiwanese-american. Yeah and think about what they can do if somebody works for an American company or in a University of serious research or whatever. You've been in America for three generations or whatever but you're really Chinese and you still have family over here you owe us through your genetic line. You still are Chinese from China. That would be like British coming to me and saying I'm still British and I should still be loyal to the Queen. I'm not British American same with Taiwanese. They're not Chinese unless they say they are. And then they feel like that in our heart. You know what I mean like Hong cars as an example just since June. There's been a dramatic decrease in the number of people in the some of these polls you can trust polls that Hong cars who now identify themselves as Hong Kongers. They no longer identify themselves as Chinese. But as Hongkongers in you'll even see it on t shirts. They're starting to get that national and group identity which they need if they're going to at some point that Hong Kong could be independent. I want to give people a little bit of a sense of history here because Britain was in control of Hong Kong for a century. Right people need to know why Hong Kong although adjacent to China was not part of China for such a long time. Because that's key to the history of what's going on here. The background of what's going on here. So what happened in Hong Kong? That made it a protectorate of Britain for so long. Well right. Let's widen that out. There is never any truth in the world without context. Context is absolutely crucial and at that time in history there was a huge amount of colonization going on in Africa and America South America all over the world including all over Asia. French of course Germans. The old party was there. The Dutch Spanish Portuguese British. Were doing it in so they were in. Hong Kong for a very long time and finally they turned it over to the Chinese Communist Party in Nineteen ninety-seven now. The Chinese Communist Party likes to spin up now that they've got this ancient history that goes back four thousand years or whatever but Hong Kong is much older actually. The Republic of China did not form until the late forties. As you know so I mean we're talking after World War Two. This is post World War. Two country right in so the China that we see now is hobbled together much in the way that the Soviet Union was hobbled together. It's a lot of despair people's very different histories. Like for instance. Tibetans are the Whitacre's and so many I mean huge amalgam of people's but they've tried to hobble this together and try to pretend that they have domain over one point three or four billion leaper whatever but in reality. The promises of the Chinese Communist Party for generations have been security and prosperity. Think that for a minute context of what's going on now with the economy security and prosperity think about that in context the Wuhan virus now. They don't have security and they don't have prosperity it's plummeting right now and so this is some of the main glue holding number together is security in gold in so if that gold dries up and the security is no longer there in the p. l. a. doesn't have the power that ad pl as the People's Liberation Army for people who don't know the terminology here because I think a lot of people don't know that that's the Chinese army thinking what the heck is that right the People's Liberation Army who has seventeen or eighteen little basis in Hong Kong. Actually a lot of people say that can invade Hong Kong. Don't they know and my I can see him right in front of me. There's a base. I can see it from my hotel room there here. People's Liberation Army awesome people will say as the Chinese army in reality is the army for the Chinese Communist Party. Right and reality. An American equivalent would be like the Republican or the Democrat Army a one party system where the Republicans have one or the Democrats have one and now the army is there's or it was an army that they stood up to begin with and so think about that for a minute if the Democrats or the Republicans owned the entire US military and police system. The other party would be gone. You know what I mean the old either be gone or you would be co opted. Imagine if the Republicans or the Democrats had complete power over all of our police and army intelligence services. The other side would be gone. And so. That's what you have in China. The People's Liberation Army is not the army for the People's Republic of China. Is the army of the Chinese Communist Party? Why then after being? A protectorate of Britain did Hong Kong. Then go back to China that the agreement right this is kind of like the least. The century long lease ended. What happened here that now. Hong Kong is set to become a part of China. I didn't mention this before but I wanted to become an exchange student in the nineties. I did I ended up in the former East Germany but I originally chose Hong Kong. My parents vetoed the idea because they said look. Hong Kong is slated to go back to Chinese control of the year that you're there and my parents of course had the memory of the Berlin Wall where they built the wall in Germany and people who are trapped behind it working visiting family were told they could go back. And then we're told no you're not you're not going anywhere you're stuck here forever now and that's terrifying so my parents thought there's no way we're sending a kid to Hong Kong and then having them become part of communist China while he's there on exchanger in high school like not going to happen so what was going on at that time where this suddenly switches hands from Great Britain to China. What's going on there? Oh not just at that time remember. China had already taken Tibet in the fifties. Right China is expansionist. They are the ultimate. At this point. They are the new colonizers right there. Like the new Britain only even more powerful. So what's to bet a separate country until then I had no idea A separate area for sure with Tibet's another thing that I watch while I watched very closely. The point is is that. China is very expansionist in colonial and they are the worst colonialist labral. I mean they are a murdered unknown number of Tibetans in Whitacre's and others including inside of what you might call the core of China. They want to take Hong Kong. You know as in nineteen ninety-seven course British Empire. It's not much of an empire anymore. It's more of a neighborhood that still falling apart. So they didn't have the power to stand up to the Chinese Communist Party so Britain knew that the writing was on the wall. They couldn't militarily keep it. And this is the law the jungle if you don't have the power with a big P. to keep it then you're going to lose it if you're faced up with a voracious Wolf Light Chinese Communist Party so Britain basically bowed out in was basically like okay. We're doing the right thing in the Chinese Communist Party is taking back. What is ours for thousands of years? The Chinese Communist Party formed after world. War Two right People's Republic of China. So it's not as if they have been around that long it's a synthetic construct is what it really comes down to. They made the one-country-two-systems lie the diplomats at the time. Who actually agreed to do this and said Okay. One Country Two Systems. They were at least a sophisticated. Then as I am at this age now and there's no way that they did that in good faith knowing. Hong Kong was actually going to get a nice smooth. Welcome into our big family. Hong Kong's extremely wealthy strategically placed. There is no way. Ccp was GonNa let that roll away. That's a pearl that they're going.

Your last name sounds Asian and my wife was like make sure people know that he's not Asian because it might sound like as a biased perspective which I thought was funny coming from an Asian woman because the name. Yawn is Korean as well and it's also French. My mother's side came to America in sixteen o nine. Actually we trace them back. Last name was Easson they got shipwrecked on Bermuda and then finally made it to Jamestown after being shipwrecked for about six months and then my father's side came more about one hundred years later. So we've been back in the United States forever. I mean my grandfather's several fought in the revolutionary war. It's like a forest gump history. Yeah War of eighteen twelve civil war. The whole works man so you have a military background yourself. Your nickname was Bam Bam. Is that true? Yeah Bam Bam when I was in special forces because I was very very strong it was during the eighties. Reagan military buildup so they let young people try out for special operations units like Green Berets. Which is what I did actually almost went seals but then I decided to go green berets because I wanted to go to things like language schools and that sort of thing. I got into Green Berets at age. Nineteen and they just caught me Bam Bam because I was so young and I was extremely strong so they called me Bam Bam when you were in special forces wherever you based primarily different places. I went through the initial training at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then I went to a language school in California for German and then I was stationed in Massachusetts thousand. The Tenth Special Forces Group at Fort in the night was stationed at a place called bad told in southern Germany which was a little heaven. Wow Yeah I can imagine being in Germany in the eighties. I was there in the nineties after the reunification and I was in the east and I think that must have been kind of a special time to be deployed over there. It sure was and then. I was there in the nineties as well but not in the army so I was in East Germany when it was still east. Germany Czechoslovakia will still that in Hungary Romania all that. Finally I lived in Poland for two years but that was after the army. You've covered some crazy stuff that I mean one thing that really stood out as you covered this obscure Hindu cult. That is true. They eat human flesh to supposedly gain. Magic powers is that a real thing and so creepy. How you know I went to India and I came across that sect called a Gorey's and I realized that there were some Americans in Italians and others who were involved in. I thought well that's very strange. Some Americans are involved in a cult of cannibals in India so I started tracking them all. It was epic. It was the most incredible man hunting I've ever done and it went for two and a half years. Actually I tracked them through India Nepal. I went to Tibet and China and Hong Kong back to India and then resumed the tracking there and ended up in Kashmir just unbelievable. It was more intense in serious than anything I saw in the wars. And you know I was in a lot of combat in different wars and Cannibal. Hunting was just something else that sounds like a conversation over a beer but probably no snacks. Just because you're type thing so yeah certainly no pork skewers. They say it tastes like they call it long pig man. That's a whole world of nasty. You're an independent journalist which it's a unique animal. You guys are. You've been quoted as saying if a writer wants to make money he should avoid truth and tell people what they want to hear yet to win the war. Tell the truth. What do you mean by that? That's kind of bold statement and then I'm sure it ruffled a lot of feathers. It did especially. Because when enemies came out of the woodwork. They cut that second part. I wrote that in two thousand and six right later. When I've started attacking General McChrystal. He was running the war in two thousand and ten people then found that quote cut off the second part arrested bit. Tell the truth if you want to win and use that like a bludgeon but what I was signaling when I wrote that very clearly signaling like when your teacher stomps on the floor I was saying I know you want to hear that. We're winning the war in Afghanistan. But we're not and that was two thousand and six back when it was like received wisdom that the war was won in. So I wrote twelve major dispatches in two thousand six saying that we were losing the war in Afghanistan. Now it's common knowledge. But if you rewind the tape to two thousand six and see what I wrote it was quite controversial and then in two thousand ten. A lot of people are like. Yeah we knew it all along. No you didn't insurgency is something I know quite well both from my green bay days and then I spent years out in various insurgencies right whether it's Afghantistan or Iraq or Nepal or I can talk about insurgency at a PhD level. So in other words I can go into a place like Hong Kong which I've done and I can tell you very quickly are. These protests are these riots. Is this civil unrest or is this actually an insurgency by the way? I'd never call myself a journalist. I'm just a Workhorse Bonnet in a writer but I'm not a journalist because I do things that journalists should never do pick up a weapon during a firefight in actually was firing and that sort of thing but it was life vest but anyway journalists aren't supposed to do that I'll do it without hesitation and I won't apologize for it. You know a lot of the freelancers and journalists that you see on the ground at say in Hong Kong. They're doing very good work. They're very courageous. But I haven't found any of them out there that know anything about insurgency other than the word they'll be like is that guerrilla warfare. You know that sort of thing. But they've never been in insurgencies and even most of the people who have still could not come into an analyze it and then explain why it's growing in the symptoms. So when I went to Hong Kong in June you know really kicked off in June. That was that protest on June ninth. Now sitting here in office where I'm at now and I said a death could be serious. I'm not sure. Let's watch the pattern so a couple. More big protests. I thought well that might be civil unrest so I jumped on an airplane after about the third big protest. I was there in Hong Kong. Oh Yeah I got there in Hong Kong in late June because I've been watching. Hong Kong have written two books on China working on my third book on that I won't get on an airplane for riots or protests. I don't care about those. That's background noise. But in a place like Hong Kong if you have general civil unrest or insurgency. I need to be there because it would be the most important place to be in the world and so I went there in late June by July first I saw clear sign of insurgency at the LegCo break in which is a legislative council which is basically like their parliament right so I was inside during the break in. I went upstairs. I was with them right so I thought. Wow this is very strange. They just broke into the equivalent of the Hong Kong parliament. Let's go and I went in there and I was like I can't believe this this would be like breaking into the Capitol building in the United States and so if this is legitimate and not some sort of false flag this would be a clear sign of insurgency so everything has to be taken into context. Like if I saw that happen some other country that they broke into parliament. I might say well that was just a riot. Everything must be taken into context but anybody who calls those riots in Hong Kong either is working for a CPA or something the Chinese Communist Party or they just don't know anything about the difference between riots protests general civil unrest and insurgency. These are all different animals. This is actually an insurgency in. It will not just stop. It may reduce periods of time in a wax and wane but it will not just stop for something like that. Okay I do want to back up a little bit. Because you said that you're not a journalist. War correspondent what do you think is the primary difference? Yes you've gotten into some shit and we'll talk about that too. But what is the primary difference from if I'm a journalist in a war zone versus a war correspondent? What are my job duties? Why are they different? More specifically combat. I do a lot of combat. There's a lot of war correspondent really. Don't do much combat combat workhorse monitor little different as well. There's a lot of people that go to the wars. But they mostly stay in the more safe areas going to the briefings and that's actually most and they might stick their toe into combat. I just do huge amounts of combat. It's really wonder I haven't been killed ten times in Hong Kong. Some of the people are like. Oh we've read some of your work on line we'll stick with you weren't safe and I'm like Maybe haven't read enough work. Yeah exactly it's not safe with me. I do dangerous stuff and I try to take every precaution. I do have a lot of training. I do have a lot of experience in combat but one thing that that will tell you is that at least fifty percent of this is just luck you know. Just straight up luck. Like I'd mentioned you've got into some trouble you're embedded in Mozell and something went down and you crossed the line. Yeah actually you're talking about the gates of fire incident and basically one of our guys got hit with a sniper as nameless Daniel. Lana he was okay. Got Hit in the neck but it was just a graze he was okay then were looking for the snipers and long story short we got into a firefight and then the commander Carrillo. He's a three star general now actually but at the time he was a lieutenant. Colonel he was a Tyke man of the deuce four which is the most incredible combat Spent five months within their unbelievable. A love this guy but eric. The commander got shot three times right in front of me. While I was making photos. He got hit three times. One of the bullets broke one of femurs in half so he rolled and he's on the ground and it comes up and he continued to fight. There was a lot of shooting going on and then we were in a kind of a small alleyway was quite loud in. The fight was quite tight. Sergeant Major Rob prosser showed up and he shot and Al Qaeda Dude. Four Times in the Adam in blue one Tuscaloosa off in the continued to fight. Still standing actually. After being shot four times he had a testicle blown off. That sounds horrible. Oh yeah he'll still standing and he was shot like three feet away. We're not talking three hundred meters. He was shot right there. Man like a distance that you can literally spit on him. Right rob fired. Thirty rounds is Iraq Super Bright Sun but inside that the place where he was shooting was quite dark so rob when he was firing his enfor he couldn't see the al Qaeda guy very well and he shot thirty rounds. That al-Qaeda dude kept standing trying to fire a pistol which was jammed or something wasn't working so rob through his rifle. Down and landed at. My feet was empty. So Robson they're doing hand to hand combat with the guy and then I picked up rob's rifle and got some ammunition. It was game on. We thought there were several other al-Qaeda's there so jack the magazine in and started firing to try to draw fire dark in there. I wanted them to shoot at me so I can see where they're at so I can kill him. I had been shooting photos up until I picked up the rifle right and then I started firing the rifle and then when some more soldiers came I started shooting photos against I'll put the rifle back down started shooting photos. So I've got photos of the entire event leading up to it. Still firing going on hand to hand combat and then I picked up a rifle. I started. Firing everything's finished and I start shooting photos again. Switch back to work correspondent. So what's the difference between a journalist in correspondent in that situation? You know what I mean. It was plenty of opportunity to run away. I could have ran to safety because there was an army unit. Not Far Away I think most journalists probably would not have had the skills and the training and just the aggressiveness to engage in combat to save. American soldiers. Lives so yeah. There's a big difference between a war correspondent and just a freelance journalist if somebody's gotTA kill. Us soldier I'm not GonNa sit there and just documented. I'm going to do my best to stop it even if it means. I have to do things that you're not supposed to do as a quote unquote journalist. It's incredible and I'm not trying to minimize your contribution here but I gotta say the Guy who got shot several times and then engage in combat. That guy is one bad mo fo to that is insane. Eric survived with right back to combat in the next year. He's the baddest dude. I've ever met..

Why Do Dogs Yawn?
"Hey Lauren BOCOM here with another classic episode from our former host Christian Sager. This one is about one of my favorite topics. That's something of a mystery to science dog psychology and more specifically social yawning. Hey bring stuff. It's Christian Sager. I've got to come clean. I like dogs in fact I own A to my dog winchester. Does this thing whenever I get home from work where he super excited and he's jumping around all happy and then he starts yawning for some reason. Yeah I don't know maybe he's just tired or maybe he's waking up. I don't know but he seems pretty. Delighted in yawning is one of the primary ways. Dogs communicate in their whole complicated located system of subtle body language. It could mean several things. Did you know that yawning is actually the first expression. Dogs learn to use when they're tiny puppies so it has multiple meanings depending on the situation. A dog is in dogs. Usually Yawn when they want to send a pacifying or calming homing signal out to other dogs or people like hey everybody let's take a breather and just chill out. Ok Yawns have no element of fear or war aggression for dogs. It's like the exact opposite of a threat. So imagine this year in a fistfight and all you have to do is just be like yuan on nothing dangerous or intimidating here. Just I'm I'm like board but wait. Why would my dog do that to me okay? Sometimes dogs eggs yawn when they're getting obedience training. If a dog's frustrated he might be asking you to give him a little break that is if he sees you as the dominant one in your relationship it could also mean that your dog might be just cooling off his brain there's a veterinary behaviorist at. UC Davis. That thinks dog brains get hot. During periods of inactivity dog brains get warm because their circulation slows down so yawning supposedly cools rules. The arterial blood down helping the dog's brain function. There's one other thing that yawning dogs might mean dogs. Also Yon when when they're dealing with anxiety or uncertainty in this includes being excited so maybe my dog is just trying to control his enthusiasm and and also dogs yawn when they're nervous to like in a vet's office. Do you yawn when you're nervous. Check this out. Dogs can also catch which yawning from the human beings around them. You know how if you yawn than other people in the room around. You often start yawning. Will that often has to do with a person's capacity for empathy. You know feeling what somebody else feels. Well there was a study about this that was published in a journal called biology letters in two thousand and eight and they said twenty one out of twenty nine. Dogs yawned at least once in response to the yawn

No mean feat in a country that's been dominated by conservative career politicians fits suit. And now she's president. How did this happen? In you opaque tissues. Not trust Augusta poem. They will be time for detailed analysis later. But I think that what resonated with voters was that throughout my campaign. I've always been truthful and candid and try to answer every question post to me, even when it was difficult, and this is something that Slovak's simply on use to Q V clam chuckled to the made maiden name as an environmental lawyer, but could death on the mass protests that followed prompted her to go into politics is Doug lost knit them. Get through some in little study, the tragic events of last year affected me very deeply. And now the time is ripe for Slovak's to demand and make change Slovak's beginning to cherish, the values of liberty and mutual respect. And they need political leaders who are all Fenwick in representing these values. Do not hold. Now, the Slovak presidency is largely ceremonial role. Of course, but you will still be able to veto bills to approve the formation of governments. But is that enough to tackle the problems facing stuck? Having Brzezinski problem? We'll see a calm city.

Anti-corruption lawyer wins first round of Slovakia election
"The hour. Results are coming in of presidential elections in the central European country of Slovakia and politics. There seems to be taking a very different direction from those in neighbouring Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland a liberal pro. European pro gay anti corruption female candidate has been firm. Winner of the first round Tathiana yon, Sarah Cova is Reuters Slovakia correspondent. Appetizers forty five. She just one the first round of the election by one slides. She got more than forty percent of the vote, vile. Her opponent backed by the ruling party only got more than eighteen percent of the vote. She's a public interest lawyer, she's an anti-corruption campaigner shivered AG NGO and her her most famous job from the past is her fortune year fight against an illegal landfill at her hometown. Which he managed to get close. Eventually she has very little little political experience and that stands her apart from the other candidates. I assume yes, she never held any elected office. This is her first. Well, she just joined a political party a year ago, a small liberal Progressive Party. So this this will be if she gets elected this will be her first. Doc in politics. Why do you think she's breaking through to so many voters in what is traditionally seen as a fairly conservative Catholic country when she's speaking up on issues such as gay rights because gay rights the the issue of the day for these elections. It was the fight against corruption. After last year's murder of an investigative reporter, young could see and his fiancee Martina and subsequent mass protests that forced then prime minister Robert feet saw who was in power for more than a decade to resign. So there was some kind of a voter fatigue with the ruling party combined with the shock from the murder. And also. Perceived corruption by government officials across the political spectrum, but mostly by the party, which has held power for so long. Which had influenced the election most.

Is Beijing's sky getting any bluer or brighter?
"Now living in big Chinese cities means dating with smog lots of it. But perhaps not quite as much as before Beijing is doing its best to clean up its act. It is not just there yet, but his China correspondent Bill Birtles waking up each morning in Beijing, I pulled back the curtain with a mixture of excitement and dread. What's on the other side can make or break your day? Like waking up on a Saturday with plans to play touch football. Only to see a thick white soup engulfing the skyscrapers and obscuring the distant hills. If it's over two hundred and fifty on the small particulate matter rating, chances our message will buzz in the group chat saying touch football is off today by contrast in the strategy and city usually registers a pm two point five reading somewhere around twenty or below on. The flip side is sometimes pull back the curtains to reveal an unexpectedly brilliant die. The hills of iron. The glass buildings shine and the paramilitary police relieve next door around side doing drills. If it's a weekend, a heist change plans to make the most of the good weather all up. It seems Beijing's pollution is improving the peak of it was twenty thirteen. But when I arrived back here in two thousand fifteen there were still many days where the smog reading exceeded five hundred sometimes six hundred yon ball quilt is the air quality monitoring director at I q a visual an organization that publishes real time monitoring of Niger cities, and he confirmed that yes, Beijing has improved. We're also very surprised that actually the pollution in China, especially Beijing has decreed if you compare to produce here. So that actually we can really a trend of the Parisian going down whether or not this is stable, and we don't know yet that the figures show that there's a positive trend for China. One factor is China's economic slowdown which is he'd heavy industry. The hottest. But yene by Willard says Beijing's improvement has been at no accident with government policy playing a role. Beijing has actually limited so many read fiction. Environmental restrictions and regulations which has really prevented the rule of pollution with the decree, especially moving factories away from Beijing to outside of some provinces in the outskirts of Beijing, as it does also closing down some of the power plants which were called base. So I think that really headed a lot visuals monitoring shows it's not just by djing most Chinese cities lower their ape pollution last year. And now it's fast-growing India that has seven of the top ten polluted cities in the world the people in China decided to change situation. So that maybe came from the grassroots the government really took this research. And that's why. They poured billions and billions of dollars to clean up the environment. And that's something that hasn't happened in India Pakistan, yet the level of went the winners there is really radio. That's actually tracking compared to the emergency that they're faking themselves pollution. This means I'll leave the bulk of April stories to my colleagues in Delhi, and as I write this. It's another stunning day in the Chinese capital with an air pollution rating of just twenty four. That's just like being back home. Bill Birtles air. I remember my first trip to Beijing. It was several days before I realized it was surrounded by hills or at least off to the north because he showed it and see them the facade days. Some good news from Beijing on the police in front.

They're in today's world, it's set up better than it's ever been before for the entrepreneur towards creativity more so than the factory worker, and I think our school system, kind of sets kids up to be followers or it sets them up to be someone else's employee. Whereas it would be nice to see some type of wealth creation. Classes are goal setting and achieving classes, you know, in the high schools, it's a better prepare the kids for the reality of what the possibilities are. Yeah. This man, I agree with you at the same time. It is what it is. What are you gonna do about it? Right. That's like, I take it as my responsibility.

But the listen to beyond say, they won't listen to me. So I'll I'll play beyond video because I want them to hear the message. And so it's it's awesome. To know that some teachers are also trying to find ways to connect with the students and not just trying to teach the curriculum. That's being forced down them. And what you do man. Like, it's great. It's great. Having this show is great in the warriors. It's great having guests onto bring their perspective on on fatherhood, and that might inspire. Some people listening to go off and get new ideas to be a better father as well. I love it. Yes. And because I always hear so many negative views about. The hood and about family life. I think it's very important to have successful people share their thoughts on all of it. So how is father hood kind of changed your perspective on life? I think when you are now responsible for somebody else, it it changes the importance of what you're doing. If that makes sense. I mean, I got married..

If you're a hater, there's things that everyone seems to hate of the hater variety. Does that make any sense yet? Does haters hate Duke basketball. They just do. They just hate all things do. Basketball haters will either hate. LeBron or k. d. you could maybe pick Kobe Bryant as well. Again, it doesn't mean that you cannot like those guys, but the, hey, the the, you never give any sort of love any sort of credit even when it's absolutely do, and you simply hate on any kind of negativity. Look, a hater was waiting for Notre Dame to lose or for Jim Harbaugh to lose. It was going to be a great night for the hater. The good thing about being a hater is you can hate on Notre Dame, but somehow if Michigan lose the Notre Dame, you just gloss over your hatred for Notre Dame. Like, man, I don't like horrible. Okay.
