Discussion Simone Biles Mental Health Challenges After Winning Bronze on Beam
"So i just wanna start with a very basic question to both of you. Simone biles yes has won the bronze-medal in the balance beam which is actually an even greater triumph for her. Now considering how the past week had gone for her but professor carter friend zeke. When biles. I made that announcement of withdrawing from the team competition. I just was wondering what was your first reaction. How did you feel about that. What did you think was going on. My initial reaction was of concern. And while i don't know byles you know hearing that For any athlete they withdrew Were removed from lineup. Or remove themselves made me think that she had perhaps encourage some sort of physical injury in the qualifying rounds or because of the pandemic perhaps contracted cobra as we've seen many of some of our athletes not only from the us but other countries succumb to that Then when she continued to share that she would not be competing in those events she qualified for and that it was not due to anything. Physical in real concern began to overcome me and initial thoughts of mental health issues to pass sixteen months with those respective sort of restrictive parameters The combination of postponement of the olympic games wondering what it must mean to be in the spotlight to as i reviewed all her sponsorship ads but as well reflecting on what she may be navigating in the aftermath of the sexual abuse case that she was part of so things became of greater concern and really just just hoping and wishing her well through that process over the next few days

MPs claim it could be discriminatory to have Covid vaccine passports
"The concerns about vaccine passports tend to fall into two camps equity politics vaccine distribution in the. Us is already unequal. Even though racial data on covid vaccine is incomplete. Cdc numbers show that nearly two-thirds of people who received at least one dose or white. That could mean a disproportionate number of people of color being excluded from places that require a vaccine passport beyond race. There are other questions about. How axiom passports might discriminate unequal access to technology for example and there are other concerns for instance if you privilege people who are vaccinated. Are you discriminating against people who might have religious objections to get the vaccine are you. Are you discriminating against people who might have some medical condition. That makes them very nervous about getting the vaccine. So this this has emerged as a real threat and problem not just among republicans. This is a widespread bioethical concern. I did talk to zeke. Emmanuel the former advisor to the biden cova response. He worked in the obama white house a bioethicist and he said he thinks these passports coming. No matter what and that the do have value but all the bioethicists all the officials. I talked to say it's important to tread lightly here. And that's another argument not to mandate anything. Because you're further potentially widening those equity gaps that you alluded to
Is It Safe for Schools To Reopen?
"Zeke emanuel is the crazy brother of crazy rem. He is a doctor. You may recall. He wrote off a citizen's if he were here i would ask him if he had a problem with the policies that were put in place by cuomo and whitmer and pritzker and rudolf and all the rest of by putting covert positive patients in nursing homes. Since he had very inhumane take on senior citizens not that long ago. I wonder how old he is now mr producer because if he reaches a certain age by his own standards a drag on society but he was on the morning schmo show with willie geist which comes from jupiter island or jupiter florida which perfectly fine. Just don't be liars about it but they can't help it. So zeke manuals on there on the morning schmo show and this is how it went cut to go. Where are you on schools right now. I mean the story of new york and other places is that the ones that have been open since the fall or have phased in their opening have been incredibly healthy places. There has been incredibly low. Transmission rates isn't that sort of a case. Study that school opening has been safe and that it should happen across the country. I absolutely agree with you. Willie and i have been on this actually for months and months and months you can open school safely. The data are pretty overwhelming I have argued that we should put teachers at the top that they're essential workers That you can have kids wear masks. It's a controlled environment. You can space them off. You can have open windows and keep the ventilation going I advise a number of schools to do this. And it's been very very successful. So the data. The scientific data says open the schools. You have florida and some other states that have opened the schools. So you have real life data and yet fao. He's out there and we need to change her h hvac systems
Chelsea Coaching Carousel Continues
"Lampard site as chelsea the stevie nicks and don hutchinson here to discuss that decision. St let's start simply showy. Was it fair. i don't think he's fear. No the problem is that we're talking about a club that's not normal. We're talking about club that regardless of the name of the manager regardless of the cv yelich or experience or whatever it may be when you lose so many games You don't get a chance to to get back your way. You may have been before you lose games. You lose your job. That's kind of their immortal. And so frank just falls into the into the spot where others before him. Have you lose goodbye. don't they. Size it in the statement. They weren't saying any particular progress under lampard fair. I think that's fair. I do think though he should not have been more time. Try and get his way out about for me to goodful missile and such distances all full still in the last sixteen. The jump zeke's but there's a couple of performances at the end of last season stall will season not worried that three down against west brom come back to three three sat on in game. Gema chelsea will unbelievable for forty five minutes and fought in southampton that drew dot three three will hang towards the end of the game so this being being games where he got himself into goodful. There's one periods on november december. Where the at the most clean sheets in the league and there was sitting On december the fifth on never had them is titled favorites. I didn't get carried away. And nor did frank on each Will not ready for title challenge. Anatomy bottle molested performance. Really worried may done. thousand tuna. Lost lostock could easily have been five six. But i still think you know if you'll wrote abramovich annual no the board of directors at chelsea. You must understand that. Frank lampard chelsea is going to have a difficult time. It's just not gonna come into legend and tried to call plate while cloth Lots in in a pet quality ola and marino. It's going to be difficult for him so when you are in difficult times. I would've thought. I would shut him a little bit loyalty and more only little bit patients and if it didn't work out in a month salmon chelsea was still in his position then tell them to stop in time and just seems a little bit off. What was it. What was the last straw. Well not not the luton game because they wanted strange when you suck someone to win we even. If it's in the autumn of to hold up in the league for example. I think he's an accumulation of things like the boys of said. The results haven't been good enough. He's the manager of the abramovich era with the lowest point tally per game again which is just not good enough. It's not good enough the performances that they've put the way they played no identity and we at the end of january. Now no patterns of plano star. There's nothing you can see really in the game. They played too many defeats sunday in the last six weeks and i think he also pays the difficult relationship behind with marina. Grownups difficult relationship that he had some of the dressing room. Certainly the fight. That tim of hobbies have failed so far to establish themselves in. That team is also on him. He can argue that he wanted can ride. I didn't think the team was balanced. He needed a bit more time. Whatever excuses he can come up with. I think overall is just not good enough and and we've seen in the past sake managers who've won great things like marino konchalovsky and keeping some like sorry like to finish the season and finished with with with a trophy as well for he must have. It was the right time to change and to bring much to what you don. I'm not hearing of drought. Jody morris a texas I wouldn't i wouldn't bombard the Text because a frat will be hutton. And so so. We'll jody morris But front knows. I think he's he said dot stipends not nice disappointed in raleigh saw. I'm not just go back to the bigger picture dot unless i'm naive. When you see other gonna solve show on your say mccullough frontline pod come into the league expected to win the premier league. Expect to get close to wouldn't jump. His legs latte is so difficult and you say we'll all these. I mean. this guy was going to be cycling. They when they failed to qualify for the last sixteen of the jump zig and went out ridiculously early on bodily as well or not. it was under pressure. Walk two months ago. An authentic turn things around episodes slowly. All he's not sitting tilt the league's just think a little bit of patients unfortunately talked about chelsea and night on any monitor patients when they win the league a win the very biggest these japanese. They still pull the trigger. Do you think he's biggest. Mistake has been the when you go and spend so much money on attacking players and you come to the halfway stage of the season. Nobody knows what your front four is going to be. Then i think. I if i'm looking at that from their point of view swirl ho ho long do we give this guy t saw how we're going to go forward because right now you've probably got what seven or eight players vying for four squats and we have had every single combination and we still don't know come come saturday afternoon. Who's going to. Who's going to step forward and plan that front force. Or i would suggest that's been his biggest mistake.
Zcoin: Looking After The Community With Reuben Yap
"Let's start off with you. Know for viewers. What exactly is a z coin. There's a lot of privacy. Focused crypto currencies out there. Different types of token people are sometimes confused between the differences. So you know how long has z coin been out and what exactly is some of the benefits you can do it. Right so Zeke hainan Main in two thousand sixteen. I think probably in the work of oil probably sought bali one and a half years before that. can be launching the twentieth of september. Two thousand sixteen so we can just post office having Just like i mean upper months ago. So that's really exciting and what we do in z. Coin that we really really belief in the importance of a ripple that is uncensored book and private because we feel that if you want to have an ought to ought to the financial system in asked to be both Private and or it to be uncensored in unseasonable privacy's also asked important As well especially with bitcoin now you know every single from sexton is is kind of recalled. The payments lee on the blockchain barry single movement of a coin is traceable promise in inception and i think you know what we do to provide privacy's we allow people to actually destroy the coins and at any time in the future to regain them for brand new ones with no previous transcendent history. It's almost wiping all the transaction history and getting fresh virgin coins and that's the crux of technology. And we've used this being the all. This technology is kind of homegrown is not a faulk of something else and we do have independent research and we probably can talk a bit more about that later. Yeah yeah that's really really interesting to hear. I think that's one of the things that that is unique. You know i've i've read a lot about even for the employees in internal stakeholders developers. Will you all offer a burning redeem different privacy models at y'all have switched recently and You know one thing that maybe you could talk about. Is i heard that you all kind of bitch. The founders reward and you increase development for funding post having or at least. That's what your plans are. So why did you take this approach. As opposed to other protocols out there that still do keep that founder reward into the protocol. It seems that you all are working hard to support the community. Keep them happy. I think he's a balanced right. I mean on the one hand you know people unfortunately see founder words and stuff like that. It's a formal and reaching and reaching the faltas or the initial investors. And they don't see as like a peel community project by the same time. I mean realistically except for very few handful of of really really projecting even those suffering for funding You expect of like development improvements on almost like a donation basis is also very difficult. I mean you know you take a look at a bitcoin. Right it's funded by you. Know a lot of funds but it d- may be pursuing their own interests. Even someone like lou dash junior. He couldn't get funding. He's been like a call developer for so long and he he's like i need the final edition of what because the on enough. I mean bitcoin is like the biggest cryptocurrency and dean of having problems. Funding green itself has a green another privacy. Coined the ailsa struggling You know they have the handful of programmers and very reliant on on donations that may or may not continue coming along. And that's a really bad way to attract allen who want job stability and things like that right. I mean that's something to be expected of. You wanna try thailand. You have to be able to pay them
Cowboys vs. Eagles score: Michael Gallup leads aerial assault against Philadelphia, keeps Dallas alive in NFC East
"Dallas cowboys ended the philadelphia eagles season on sunday afternoon at. At and t. stadium. That's right the eagles now with only four wins with only one game left even though the cowboys will need some help from them. The philadelphia eagles are officially done. And we'll have to look forward to two thousand and twenty one when their quarterback will be jalen hurts full-time or carson wentz. Who knows there's a lot to get into as it as it relates to this game again so many things happen. Let's start the first highlight to show you here. If you're watching on youtube sean. Jackson did indeed have an eighty one yard touchdown. Jalen hurts finds him about six minutes left in the first quarter. Just absolutely rose. We had absolutely chance. This is the type of thing that we've grown accustomed to seeing. Unfortunately from sean jackson he has gotten the better end of the cowboys for a long time over a decade. Schon jackson has been shown the cowboys now with multiple quarterbacks in multiple home stadiums schon jackson has had success. I'll give it to him that. At least this time. He remembered to score the touchdown and not fumbled the ball right in front of the goal line. Let's keep on. Let's get to some more happy. Highlights and michael gallup who was in contention for our star of the game. His first touchdown was a beauty as the second quarter. Began getting the cowboys. Back in the mix narrowing the margin. Fourteen to ten michael gallup like i said look at that elite camera work from fox. We'll talk about that in a second. Michael gallup quickly got to work. He had a big gain a little bit after a few minutes later. Look at this starting his own thirty five running down the sideline a bunch of eagles chasing him. Michael gallup doing all the work doing all the work doing all the work and then speaking of work you know the cowboys as we all know they like to feed ezekiel elliott. This was later on that possession the cowboys trailing fourteen. Ten and ezekiel elliott. There's no video of this so apologies. If you're watching on youtube you can see our freeze frame image. A looked like ezekiel elliott. Who had a really great game really looked like he scored on. This place is a bad angles from the tv copy but to me to my naked eye it looks like zeke. Elliott is over the line. I think that that's a touchdown. Zeke mike mccarthy did not challenge this. The cowboys wound up settling for fuel narrowing the margin fourteen to thirteen. They would ultimately start their climb back and they're ferocious. Climb back in fact. Let's get to that. Climb another michael gallup touched down here at the end of the first half andy dalton not even messing around just looking right for him and michael gallup again just a superstar a true wide receiver. One cowbys have three of them. Dalton schultz you can see very happy for his teammate. This was a phenomenal performance by michael gap
'There's No Quick Fix For COVID-19,' Cautions Pennsylvania Secretary Of Health
"Going to talk more now about how states are preparing to distribute those vaccines as they become available, and to do that, we're joined by Dr Rachel Levine. She is the Pennsylvania health secretary and also president of the Association of State Health Officials. Dr Levine welcome 12 Things considered. Thank you very much. I'm very pleased to be here. Will you walk us through the logistics for when Pennsylvania first receives its initial shipments of vaccines? I mean, where does it go? How do you keep it cold? What do you actually have to do? Sure. So we're all waiting the meeting of the FDA on December 10th. And then they will consider all of the data of submitted by the Fizer Corporation for the first vaccine. When they issue their emergency use authorization or you away, then operation Warp speed will distribute the vaccine. To hospitals in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation just to get specific is the federal government or or fives or corporation, sending it to the state of Pennsylvania to distribute it to hospitals. I I asked, because this vaccine has to be kept incredibly cold. It's not just like you can send a bottle of aspirin, right? So you are correct. This is an ultra cold chain vaccine that has to be kept at minus 80 C or or Celsius. So it will be operation works speed that will be sending it to the hospitals that we designate now will depend, of course about how much we're going to get, and it comes in trays of 975 bottles. So these have to be hospitals that can Deal with the cold chain and can deal with that amount of vaccine to then administer. Now, the CDC recommends that health care workers and residents of long term care facilities should get first access to these vaccines. That's a large number of people have you decided whether you're going to start With older healthcare workers or people with underlying conditions are only doctors and nurses who see covert patients. I mean, how are you going to prioritize within the priority groups? Sure. So we're going to be developing a decision tree for hospitals to use and we'll be finishing that this week. I want to point out that the distribution for the nursing home and other long term kitchen facilities Goes in a different way. So operation works speed working with Walgreens and CVS will be receiving the vaccine with those two pharmaceutical companies, and then they will be working to administer the vaccine in nursing homes and other long term care facilities. Do you have a sense of how many doses The first shipment is likely to include and how that compares to the number of people in this top priority. First group, so we don't exactly know how many doses we're going to get in the first shipment. So you know, we had lots of discussions with Operation Warp speed, you know, will be looking to attack the end of next week or certainly when they're going to be sent out to know exactly how many doses we're going to get in the first week. And then the expectation our weekly shipments to the hospitals and to Walgreens and CVS for those distributions. I gotta ask a lot of depending here on the ability of operation Warp speed to carry this out effectively And with Corona virus testing, the federal government kind of fell down. I mean, There weren't enough tests. Some of the tests were not accurate. Initially. How confident are you in the ability of this Trump Administration program to get this very difficult job done? We have heard directly from General Purna. You know, we have confidence in them, but I'm sure it will be a significant logistical challenge. This has to occur throughout the United States, all at the same time to all of the states, the territories. And then some specific large cities. And are you also concerned about the smooth handoff from one administration to another? I mean, if the distribution depends on Operation Warp speed, which is a Trump administration program will the Trump Administration only has so many more weeks in office. Now, the Department of Defense under General Karna, you know, will still be there in terms of continuity, But in terms of the representatives from helping human services and the administration, we would like to think that they'll be robust conversation. Nation and communication as the administration transitions. Obviously, that has not happened as much as it should have yet, But we're hoping that all those communications will be going on forthcoming. Just to get back to the scale of the logistical challenge here. This is a vaccine requires two doses weeks apart. Do you have the infrastructure to track and time who has had a first dose when yes, we do. But that is a information technology challenge in terms of making sure that we get the right vaccine into the right person at the right time. And then not only the visor vaccine, but the Madonna vaccine that also is a to dose vaccine. We've heard so many states talk about the extreme budget pressure that they are under and this is an expensive undertaking. Do you have the money? You need to do it? And if not, do you think the federal government is ready to provide it well, it will be essential for the federal government to provide more funding to the States territories in cities that will be tasked with ministering the vaccine. Operation works speed cost billions and billions for the development of the vaccine on Lee $340 million has been allocated for the next part of the mission, the distribution and the administration so clearly states and territories and cities. They're going to need more funding from the federal government to finish and accomplish this mission. These issues you're talking about could occupy you for more than 40 hours a week every week, and you are at the same time dealing with a spike in Corona virus cases and having to contact trace people who may have come in contact with exposed individuals, overcrowded hospitals. How are you juggling all of this at once? Well again. This is the public health challenge of a lifetime. I don't think any of us have seen a 40 hour week. You know, in our memories I stand corrected three ways to deal with the pandemic. You can work on containment that involved the testing and contact tracing very hard to contain a virus that has spread this far. For example, Today we are reporting 11 over 11,000 new cases. In Pennsylvania. It's impossible to contact that many people, so we have to prioritize. We prioritize to congregate, setting such as nursing homes and other long term care facilities, Correctional institutions, schools, etcetera, Then we have mitigation. Basic mitigation sets his mass and hand washing and social distancing. And then in Pennsylvania, you know we had to have a stay at home advisory. And you know, we have really tried to recommend that people avoid not only large gatherings but small gatherings. And then they'll be the vaccine those of the tools and the public health to box that we have to work with. When you're dealing with community spread on the level that we are seeing now, where there is so much of this disease and so much transmission of it. Do you have to change your approach? I mean it, Zeke gone from hand to hand combat to fighting an army out. Imagine it has And so the basic public health tool of containment, which we would do for a small measles outbreak or for it outbreak of tuberculosis? That is extremely difficult for public health to do when we're seeing this type of widespread community transmission, and then we have to pivot to more and more mitigation. It's a very unpopular it is made public health officials sometimes unpopular throughout the nation, but they're absolutely essential to try to stop the spread. And then we have the light at the end of the tunnel, which is the vaccine, but there's no quick fix to hope in 19. After Rachel Levine, Pennsylvania Health Secretary and president of the Association of State Health officials. Thank you for talking with us in the middle of everything else that you were doing. My pleasure. Thank you very much.
U.S.’s failure to contain the coronavirus ‘mind blowing,’ colder months will be ‘very tough’
"Everything that's happening right. Now was warned of six months ago. Nine months ago. I i'll i'll say it now. I was on the phone with zeke emanuel back in march and rem annual back in march. Zeke had been talking to the president. I said what are you saying until it said. It's gonna be really bad mr president. It's going to be really bad. You got to get ready and as bad as it's going to be in the spring it's going to be worse in the fall. That was the warning. Donald j trump guide in march and we heard every doctor tell him the same thing every medical expert. Tell him this same thing and of course you had the press conference where donald trump assured us that this would not come back in the fall. Dr fauci said yes. It's going to come back in. The fall and healthcare systems are going to be pressed remembered all the times. Donald trump said we had the best testing of the world. We've got more testing. You see that picture of those cars lined up around dodger stadium. The best testing in the world not even close because he reviews time and time again to implement the defense production act remember. Donald trump saying one person coming in from china and then saying it was fifteen. And then saying we're gonna be fine in the fall. Will the fall is here and looking at this at the lines of people waiting to get a test. It's worse now than ever before. Just as donald trump was warned. Back in march by zeke emanuel justice warned by anthony algae on live television in a press conference. And so here. We are coming up to two hundred thousand new infections a day. Over two hundred and fifty thousand americans. Dead and that number is skyrocketing a shortage of testing our hospital system at a breaking point. This was not stupidity. This was willful negligence. And it's on donald trump and its own. Everybody that's worked for donald trump. It's on everybody inside the white house and it's on every republican that kept their mouth shut because they didn't want to insult the president. Oh yeah now. They don't want to insult the president while he's trying to actively undermine american democracy this past year they haven't wanted to upset the president because well he was lying about the coronavirus and a lot of stupid people really ignorant people believing. That's why we saw. Actually the governor of iowa mocking a mask mandate a couple of weeks before the election but after the election now suddenly a mask mandate is good science. This is willful negligence and it is. It is party politics at its worse it is. And you don't have to take zeke manuals word for it. We heard it in the presence. Own voice on those tapes from bob woodward. He said he knew how serious it was. He knew it was deadly. He called it the plague but he said he wanted to play it down. And as you point out there are press conferences we can roll out the tape where the president would get up in that white house briefing room and say it's not coming back in the fall. This is the worst of it. He'd move aside. Dr fact would say it's coming back in the fall. This is coming back in the fall so we are right where everyone told us we were going to be the differences between march and now eight months. We haven't done anything to stop what's happening right now. The judgement of history is going to be incredibly harsh as bad as it feels right now when we have some space for this everyone can look back on it. Hopefully we get through this rather than later. The fact that our federal government led by president trump stepped aside and let this virus burn through the country. It's unforgivable and it's happening right now and if you hear the urgency in the at briefing yesterday you hear the urgency from the cdc here the urgency from the doctors who come on our show. Dr oester home yesterday. Said this is the most serious public health a moment we've had in this country right now since one thousand nine hundred eighteen and we did start acting like it
Inside Biden's COVID-19 Team
"A big part of what's lean gander is doing this week is being a spokesperson. Getting the biden. Message out about what they need and what they plan to do. The president-elect as talked about appealing to governors to try to enforce mask mandates it. Do you think those would make a difference because there are places like new york. Where you and i both live where those are in place and yet we've got big outbreaks in different communities. Well i think the key is that one how enforceable is a mandate to who is issuing the mandate. Is it somebody that these communities respect. Believe trust and i think that makes a national mandate both enforcement issues as well as the trust shoes very challenging. I do think you know a mandate coming from a governor. For example governor of south dakota that would be taken very differently would be received very differently by people in south dakota. Then if the president were issuing that same mandate should we have a national testing plan or has the boat sailed on that already so the current administration has actively discouraged. Testing has said oh. We're testing too much. That is definitely not what you're going to hear under the new administration if anything you're going to see a massive ramping up of testing and really trying especially in communities of color that have been really hard hit to make sure we have much better equity in access. But who's who's responsible for that. Is that this sort of patchwork we've got now of some state some cities. Some urgent cares or is it the federal government saying okay. We're doing widespread testing. Yeah this is the place where you're going to see. The federal government really stepping in one of the places where they could have a real impact is invoking the defense production act that would mean the federal government could compel manufacturers to crank up production. President trump has done this to a limited degree but the biden team wants to use the law. More broadly both with respect to personal protective equipment as well as scaling up production of test kits. So i i really do think we need a national plan here and that will include testing Not just people who have symptoms but people who have no symptoms expanding testing and encouraging mask. Mandates are things president-elect biden could do once. He takes office in january. That's two months from now. Normally an incoming administration would be getting information from the outgoing one. But selene says that's not happening. How much does president. Trump's refusal to concede and this sort of official transition being stuck in limbo. How much does that get in your way. Well that's a huge problem. We know historically that transitions are real period of vulnerability for the country in terms of national security. And that's whether that's a a foreign threat a terrorist threat or a threat like the corona virus and so that really could very well translate into americans dying unnecessarily to give you some examples of the kind of information we want and we can't get company gloves. do we have. How many syringes. Where are we in negotiating contracts with pharmaceutical companies with the logistics of delivery. Where are we in terms of developing databases to track who's gotten vaccinated who needs to be vaccinated. I mean those are things that are in a wait and boring nuts and bolts kind of stuff. But that's the stuff that you need to be able to plan a big response like this in terms of scaling affects nations even if the to really promising looking ones pfizer moderna if they are skilled up distribution. Is this huge challenge. How are you all thinking about vaccine distribution and getting it into the communities that that need it most so why you have to scale up. The this is where really moving forward with. The transition is really going to be important because we need to have a better understanding. What's happening on the inside with the pharmaceutical company capacity. And then once you've manufactured these doses how how do you distribute them in wear and some of that will depend on the characteristics of the vaccines. So you know the the pfizer vaccine needs to be deep-frozen minus seventy celsius. Well most family doctors. I don't know that any family doctors have the capacity to store a vaccine at that temperature. a lot of community hospitals will not have that kind of capacity either. And so what you're really looking at is having probably big academic hospital centers major health systems. Maybe pharmaceutical retail chains having central depots. Where they can do that kind of storage. But that means it's going to be harder to deliver that vaccine in particular to rural areas. So my guess is you're going to see the pfizer vaccine really targeted to urban areas. That have the capacity to deal with what we call that cold chain of freezing whereas the modern vaccine which is Which has less stringent temperature requirements in his relatively stable for a month at higher temperatures. You're going to see them journal. Vaccine probably prioritized for rural areas. And as you know a couple other vaccines emerged from the pipeline. You'll see further and further sort of targeting based on how easy it is to get those vaccines to those parts of the country. How effective those particular vaccines are for. Certain patient populations you know he might have pfizer here new york city and you might have maduna in rural wyoming listening to you. Describe the kind of logistics around that. I keep thinking about communities that have been particularly hard hit when we are talking about black and brown communities indigenous communities Ease there. I guess a painful chance that given the kind of medical infrastructure that some of these vaccines require that they're going to be doubly hit in the vaccine rollout process. Yeah this is something that we're really attentive to an it is a tricky one because there are issues a vaccine skepticism and hesitancy in some of these communities for good reason. And if you say we're going to prioritize communities of color for vaccination there will be a contingent of people who will say. Oh so we're going to be guinea pigs for this new vaccine so you have to address those very real concerns even while you are trying to prioritize because the fact is these are communities whether it's the navajo in the southwest or the south bronx here in new york city is their communities have been hit really hard and continue even now to be. Hit harder So we really do need to prioritize them if we're going to maximize the impact of the vaccines. We've been talking about trust. And i have to ask you about one of your colleagues on the advisory board Zeke emanuel who quite famously wrote an essay. saying he'd like to die at seventy five and that made a lot of people in the disability community really angry. How do you get their trust. I noticed the president-elect mentioned them specifically in his speech how do you their trust with him as a part of this group. Well i don't really want to speak to to zeke in particular but in terms of the disability community ron clean and i actually co hosted a podcast together. He had to step away for biden campaign. Were going to be the chief of staff. He's going to be the chief of staff for for President-elect biden and ron and i interviewed early on during the pandemic rebecca coakley. Who's with the center for american progress. Who is a disability rights. Activist really did listen to her concerns. Were really very much attentive to the needs of that community as well so we are taking notes. We are reaching out to people from the disability community to better understand what policies they need.

BlackRocks Larry Fink; Johnson & Johnsons Vaccine Study
"Johnson and Johnson is temporarily paused. It's cove nineteen vaccine clinical trials due to an unexplained illness in a study participant the development first reported by stat news notes that the study is not under a clinical hold that's the more serious hold and it's not immediately apparent whether the volunteer received the actual treatment. Or a placebo. That would be key difference J. J. says adverse events. Events like illnesses aren't expected part of clinical studies but if they do find out, yeah, it was the placebo. Well then. It goes without saying. Apparently. It's not always immediately available for that but I read through that a lot because it it seems to me like you'd be able to figure out pretty quickly it to shutting down your entire thing if this was somebody who got the placebo. That's why it's called the blind, a double blind study or whatever you want people knowing who? Didn't. I guess somebody knows I hope so or else you get. Jeez. Yeah. Wow maybe. Striking, about this, this is now the second one of these that we've had AstraZeneca's you know put a hold of briefly internationally on their efforts but by the way that effort I believe is not ongoing right now in the United States. So if for example, there was a hold on the Astra Zeneca project in the United States and they separate hold now on the Johnson and Johnson one minute. It's not this is not a whole. Holistic. Pause. Right. A pause, but there was a I the point I was trying to make was there was a pause if you WANNA use the word pause and hold I know there now there's a distinction between the two, but there was also a pause on the Astra Zeneca program in the United States if they're also pause on the Johnson and Johnson Program in the United. States then you're then you're now down to Pfizer and Madonna as the most promising. The only other two that are even ongoing when you think about the time line for when these things become available, it could become more challenged. I I would. I would wait until. You know. That's not like you to find the negative part of it, but I mean I. Came back. It's not I hadn't realized I. Don't know if you want. I not. Not a spinal thing like the other one I understand that. Thousands of people in all these trials and you're talking about two cases that you don't even know we're going to result in Holt. So it made push it out to ask what if the dates maybe bad possibly, what possible what have you imagined that would have you imagined that the Astra Zeneca program would be running everywhere else in the in the world except the United States right now I I haven't thought realized that tried to mad and haven't tried Ed Needs is this means it's going to be the Astra Zeneca program to become available here at the United States in any kind of similar time. That's the point. For more on the news from Johnson and Johnson. Let's bring in Dr Zeke Emanuel. He of course, the former White House health policy advisor under President Obama he's now vice provost of global initiatives at the university, of Pennsylvania, and he's currently an informal adviser to the Joe Biden campaign and the Covid nineteen and Vaccine Recommendations. By the way he just co authored a research letter for the Journal of the American Medical Association comparing us, covert fatalities to those of some larger OECD countries to talk about that in just a moment. But Dr Manual let's start with this news from J. and J. Does this concern you? Well, any time? There's a serious adverse event it has to concern you but I think as. J. F. O. explained. You know you have to let the process evolve you have to actually examine carefully what the? Situation is the adverse event is related to the vaccine or placebo. Related to something else a pre existing condition, and so those are exactly the kind of questions at. Researchers will look at and try to uncover in the next few hours. And then we'll find out more. If it's in the you know arm with of the vaccine it does raise serious questions because you only have a few thousand people in the study like this one adverse event is serious especially when you're considering a vaccine that you're going to roll out to tens, hundreds of millions of people maybe even billions of people. So you know. That's the that's the ultimate concern, and this is actually standard process. For every research study you get a serious adverse event, you investigate it, it happens all the time. It's just the world's not always watching. So closely to see what the developers are excited worth pointing out that the the CFO of Johnson and Johnson also pointed out, they don't know any of these answers because they have turned it all over to independent investigators, and that is what kind of beefs up the credibility issues around those. The CFO himself has no idea even though this was thirty six hours ago whether this was in a placebo patients someone who actually received the vaccine will continue. That they've been carefully collaborating with the NIH on this trial and you know that I also think should give the American public. Some reassurance at this is going to be done thoroughly and to the highest scientific standards might detrimental. Let's talk about that paper that you wrote. You found that the United States did have higher death rates from Cova. I think the big question is was that something that was taking place very early on in the pandemic and that has improved since then and what have you found? Tell us a little bit about your study. So what we did is to take the United States mortality from it. Compare it to eighteen. Countries a high income countries like Japan and Australia Canada and Jeremy and also the countries that were hit very hard at the start Italy Spain, France and other. European countries. And we looked at the whole period and compared to most countries We actually the United States has done poorly even if you include the early phase but if you exclude the early phase March and April when every many countries were overwhelmed especially places like Italy and Spain. And you exclude them and then look say may after countries have experienced, got their arms around how to manage this of virus. I turns out the United States at extraordinarily bad even compared to places like Italy a we had from. May Tenth. To today roughly ninety thousand more deaths and we should have had we followed Italy scores ninety thousand Americans who died needlessly. As I have pointed out before Italy didn't have anything special or different in terms of Treatment Vaccines Diagnostics compared to the United States, what they have is better public health. Implementation of the public health measures, and that actually is a could could have saved tens of thousands of lives in the United States. and. We can see that when we compare our experience to those of other countries. What are you talking about in terms of reactions? You mean people wearing masks, you mean contact tracing do you mean testing that's put out? How much this you think falls on the healthcare system. As a fault and how much of it rely falls on public policy reaction to it. How much falls on just citizens following the rules well. It's all of it, but it's mainly the public health response in public policy. It really is implementing those public health measures, countrywide with fidelity. And then slowly reopening. So you do have to have social distancing you do have to have a trying not to go indoors. You do have to have having crowds less than twenty. You do have to have wearing face masks doing hand hygiene and focusing your testing and contact tracing capacity first of all, building it up, which we never did successfully in this country, and then focusing it on hot spots because we know this virus breaks out. A super spreading events it's not the usual person to person to person you know eighty to ninety percent of people will not pass this to anyone. Ten percent to twenty percent of people 'cause eighty percent of the infection. So you have to be able to identify them and quickly suppressed that we never built up that capacity the federal government under president trump punted it to the states and then states did very different. Things had Florida right now as rapidly opened up restaurants and many other things and a lot of us are expecting super spreading situations in Florida. We've seen. Places that kind of ignored? This up and down the Midwest saying Oh it's not here. Now having very high rates of cases we've had thirty one states that are going up and not down which is a very worrisome situation going into the fall and we're going to move inside. It's going to much easier to pass this virus along. And a lot of us are seriously worried about the consequences hazy I'm trying to do whether that was apples to apple. So when in May in the United. States. We got we got a later start right in Europe and by May they're already seeing. Progress over in Europe did you adjust I'm not sure whether you adjusted for that because we were right at the height. Close to it in May still and and they were on the downside in. Europe is. Standardized that in a way or wrong on that or or because we were going to have a lot more. A lot more deaths in in May than they would because they they were they got it a lot earlier there. Then I have a follow up question to. That is a super sophisticated question and you're one hundred percent, right we started a week or two later than European countries like Italy France But if you make that adjustment, it makes a slight difference not. Difference Yeah. So it's not it's not. Our peak was in May and their peak was in the end of March early April. In fact, our peak was earlier in April. and. By, by May tenth, we should have gotten our arms around and then also in our paper, we look at June seven and subsequently, and even if you look at June seven, we have tens of thousands of more debts that other countries like again the Netherlands France Spain. Italy. So we've done poorly, and by the way our data collection goes through mid September. So we've done poorly even with the August blip because of the. Spring summer vacations in many European countries where we know people like Silvio Berlusconi in Italy partied and ignored all the recommendations and got cove it So we have done badly even after even if you include the fact that we got this about a week or two later compared to other countries that was a very good question typically on the high level statisticians or clinical researchers ask that kind of. I don't with. Feeling so good about myself. All of a sudden the problems we've had here the number of cases the number of that's a number of hospitalizations was not inevitable. It was a result of bad public health measures being implemented or not implemented as the case may be and you can see this repeatedly states seeming seeming to learn nothing like Florida rushing to open up restaurants bars when we should be slowly slowly be opening. Detrimental very quickly. It I guess we do have time for one more question how how much of an impact do you think a Americans healthiness versus other countries have how do we rate just in terms of underlying co morbidity is that might be there well, it's a mixed bag for one thing our population skews younger than most European countries, they have a much older population more people over sixty five. And we know that older people tend to die from this disease unfortunately we have more co morbidity in terms of diabetes in terms of obesity, but they have more Komo British in terms of lung problems because they have higher smoking rates in the United States Net Nan. It probably comes out in the wash but we're going to have to do some more. Rigorous Studies of the CO morbidity situation and the age distribution of the population. But I don't think it's GonNa be tens of thousands of deaths. It might be a few thousand maybe even ten thousand but the overwhelming response effect that about half of our deaths or unnecessary that's not gonNA come out because of small differences in co morbidity between our countries and their country. Zeke thank you very much for your time. It's really great talking to you. Thank you very sophisticated questions this morning.
Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line In Flux Due To Injuries
"Have lots of talk about as it relates the cowboys I just what I think of this team this year and the expectations after Jerry Jones finally made the gutting decision that led to Jason Garrett showing up the building every day with a binder underneath his arm and dutifully hoping that he would. Get a stay of execution cowboy fan celebrated not only the draft pick a CD lamb but a coach was skins. Mike McCarthy hasn't exactly translated into the season that they had hoped for, and we're expecting some of it has to do with injuries bobby and we'll get to those in a second but a lot of teams are having to deal with injuries this year. Yeah. I, mean, the team the cowboys have up here the browns they've got a lot of injuries to deal with I. Mean The seahawks had you know a lot of patchwork stuff that they were doing last Sunday against the cowboys and so injuries are an excuse they're not necessarily a good excuse though for this cowboys team I think they, they definitely are missing some guys. They probably feel a little bit like we're not gonNA know who we are for real until probably mid October when randy gets reinstated fully you get hopefully late and vander aeschbacher. Corner start getting healthy so. It may be a situation where the cowboys are kind of you know we're GONNA fight and we're GONNA get as best we can until we get healthy and that's not necessarily an excuse that they're giving. It's just this is the way it's gotta be, and we kind of make do a little bit because they are decimated in the secondary. They've had issues at linebacker they've you know had the issues along the offensive line they lost jar when they're starting tight end and So I, mean they've definitely. Had those issues the thing that they don't want. You, you can't really do anything about injuries. You just adapt as best. You can the thing they don't want his they can't have. Three drops and you know two and a half yards per touch from Zeke Elliott. They can't have Jalen Smith missing tackles consistently and still be sixty million dollar guy they can't have. Dak Prescott turning the ball over. They need to have him protecting the ball. They can't have you know some of these. Occasional Amari Cooper focus drops. You expect injuries you deal with those. What you can have is all of that and then along in the secondary, you can't have guys just making really low I q reads and busted covered just stuff that doesn't seem to be a factor of trying to learn a new defense. This just seems like flat out low I q stuff of not recognizing who's assignment is who's You know I think back to Jalen Smith's comment to a about. Throwing it out through a little bit. Maybe they need to simplify the playbook if our fans aren't familiar with that one, let's play that one real quick. People, find beams the defense could innocent the group. Absolutely. Absolutely. I. Believe. Allowing more allowing US more opportunities to Hound in on what? We're actually going to run in in our game plan. I believe it's important. That each and every player knows in and out what they have to do. With a smaller playbook, you you know gives us better opportunity to do that. And like I said this about as growing each and every week. On coaches are the same page, the players on the same page and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better. Each and everyone is that players that aren't capable of learning the playbook or is it possibly too complicated? I don't know but I, got to tell you for all the people that wanted Rod. Marinelli Outta here have been overly impressed with Mike Nolan's defense. Again, injuries are an issue, I mean you lose Gerald McCoy loosely Van Deresh. You lose your to starting Corner Anthony Brown, and Lucy, but even they were healthy in that first game. I didn't think this team look that good. No, and you know it's again it's one of those things where not even a mention he's been healthy for the season but Jordan Lewis missed all the camp. I. Sale. Yeah. Exotic Woods was a big part of your problem last Sunday against the seahawks but I think overall everybody's got to step up. You know it's funny. We had Had the funny line during training camp. When asked him do you think about opting out at all and he said, Nope, contract to your baby and there's a lot of guys back there right now in contractors Jordan Lewis Cheeto you've got exertive your woods is another one. And it's fascinating that they're seeming to have these issues not just with again, the adjustment or or or skill players opposite them it's they're just dropping the ball in terms of. Knowing really basic fundamental stuff that that should have been all ironed out already and and you can say, maybe that's a a an issue with you didn't have some of the same lead up time or some of the same work that you would normally get but everybody had those same sort of issues and and not everybody is having these same sorts of just busted coverage touchdowns. I. Think there's four already on the year that were just left wide open by somebody not knowing an assignment including three last week against the

"The guys welcome into fancy in sports podcasts. This year host of aac are today. I'm privileged to be joined again a bob lung who is the author of the award winning fantasy fantasy football consistency guide available on amazon so basically before beginning the podcast with bob long. I'm just gonna quickly. Discuss zeke news has that happened in between when we recorded an currently zeke was indeed finally signed behind the dallas cowboys i ending a hold out that span for months and months and the numbers are reported are six years ninety million dollars which makes him the highest paid running back in n._f._l. History along with fifty million guaranteed dollars now there are rumors reward by rotor world zeke. We'll be on a snap count so it's definitely some interesting to consider if you drafted maybe top three rounds running backs than you may consider considers sitting zegers starting am in your flex or something that but otherwise zeke should definitely be a starting cowboys running back who towards the end of the game he likely won't play if the game becomes outta hand which is definitely something that could happen by against the giants so it stephanie we easy match up for them but there is a potential for him to be taken off the field just in preventive injury cases so he's have no not going to be ranked as highly as he usually would but regardless. He is my number one fantasy running back now i do. I think he'll finish there with the week. One issues there there is a possibility that he finishes just outside the number one by think he's locked and loaded toffee ryan back in. I think he's the only one who could definitively say that about. I think saquon his offense that he's initiatives <music> atrocious and the amount of stock boxes he'll face. It's in reported..

"Not under contract after this year you have a mark Cooper not under contract for this year by the way give a first round pick last year Zeke is not in camp right now Zeke is not most is most likely not going to play week one Byron Jones will need a new contract and that's another with the cowboys if he gives it back on track maybe it does affect someone down the road and that's what the cowboys keep on saying they're not going to market setters also Jason Garrett's contract is up at the end of the year there's a lot of distractions with the cowboys do you trust the cowboys for this upcoming season do you would you be guaranteed a playoff appearance for the Dallas Cowboys I can't right now I think they have a good team without knowing the status of Ezekiel Elliott though I'm assuming it will eventually report I'm a venture shop sometime but without knowing that what is it to look like when he shows up what's the record and they go in this division a lot of it also depends on when he shows up and of course the one stays healthy however if you don't win that division it will be tough to make a wild card spot if you have three teams in the AFC north of the NFC north that can make the playoffs three teams in the south and you probably have a carry over in the west so it's going to be very tough to make the playoffs if you don't win that division and when I sit right now with all this noise all this drama that Jerry Jones does embrace I'm starting to wonder and trying to think that it could impede what their expectations of what their success level is for this upcoming season so do you trust the cowboys eight five five two one two four CBS eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven and by the way we're coming to you live from the rocket mortgage by quicken loans studio rocket mortgage with you every step of the way to provide a seamless mortgage experience we come back we'll take your phone calls also we will play you some of that audio with Jerry Jones from the Ben and skin show when we come back welcome aboard to Saturday morning on CBS sports radio do you trust the cowboys to this two thousand nineteen season is the question we take your phone calls a play some audio necks.

"That's the least bit funny. You tend to over laugh. That's just the thing it happens in. I think that was in play here. I would blast reporters all the time because they would laugh it away. It was it was an overreaction to anything shack said like everything he said they thought it was the funniest thing in the world and it was far from funny right yeah so <hes> this is funny okay and i'm about to preface this with a bunch of commentary that if it were not about dennis rodman would be laughably fictional ridiculous so the beginning of this story is dennis rodman roundup before our country before the latest thing where our country is trying to develop a relationship of some sort of with north korea's crazy dictator dennis rodman went over there and he took a band end of players who didn't really understand what they were getting into an almost all of them immediately regretted what it is they had done and it is an interesting documentary but dennis.

Kits today too many times choose to stay inside and play video games so here's the thing thing lord normally just kind of ignore this but he was kind of saying something similar to what i was thinking and i was like it's just a rod saying something but like that's kind of a serious thing that he's saying that kids are going to die before their parents. I don't even know where he says he knows something. We don't really great question to answer. I start googling and i'm like where's he getting this from. I can't find this anywhere can't find any sources but remember when the rock told us that we killed osama bin laden before everybody else. He knew he was right about that always a-rod right about this. Are we going to die before our parents. They gave robert. Just throw it out there. Hey where is he getting that from by the way atari amazing. I've a missile command. One of the great gains of all time also going outside. A little overrated did a great put it on the poll at lebatardshow is going outside overrated and wrong. Is he making that up where did that. You come from is missile command that at lebatardshow is missile command one of the great video games of all time. Maybe it's my man one on one training but going outside is not <music> overrated. Playing outside is the best pass time that ever existed really is all right. Put that on the poll as well as playing outside. This is the most upset i've ever heard you billy. There was a desire on. I'm sorry tony defense. There was a time where you would just go out but no video games. Perhaps you had an atari played a little missile command but you would just go outside and you would play and you would play and you would play. It's oh mom came outside and said it's dinnertime. That was a great time. It really was great time to be alive now granted. I'm i'm the guy who spent five continuous years inside his bedroom cloistered playing strategy matic baseball however as much as i wanna make fun of a rod he has is a point. He has a point. What's the point that we're gonna die before like outside inside video games whatever the point is that <hes> between each sports in video games and the obsession with virtual reality. You're inclined to be indoors not getting any exercise having more fun yeah. Well you get fat. Buy low sell high time for some ants. I feel like we still don't have answers. We're going to re. We're going to reassess in the next segment. We're gonna look something dying of video game. I don't know the rainforests on fire. I don't know their the things happen everywhere. They're happy. It's sitting around getting fat. That's greg is say gangqi. Get solved by going outside. Instead of playing video games according day rod dr ron. I mean arado expertise. I want from dr rod is just how how do you get banned from your sport. When you were already kind of the great it does it count. If i go outside in virtual reality ah good question we will explore all of them and play the over laughter of <hes> jerry jones sound in the next segment donlevatar. I get many complaints about. Why do you cut cody off so much. Why don't you let him talk more. He has no governor whatsoever for what others others find interesting. It's just for what he finds interesting and what he finds interesting is himself stu gods. I'm interested in people so maybe people are interested in me. That's my governor governor. V._c.'s donlevatar show with stugatz on e._s._p._n. Radio we are having raging fistfights around here here about whether or not befriending north korean dictator is in the top ten facts on <hes> dennis rodman. Do god's just blurted moments ago.

"The way that we prepare you for the football season. Beyond asking drew brees only questions sion's about the time that he killed an alligator with his bare hands is <hes> we do the sui awards are annual awards show. We do it <hes> every year right before. Four football season starts and so next week you will have the sui awards. It's sort of a it's a recall an reminiscing about all of the funny and weird things that happened over the last year and it about the most fun we have so that is going to be next week. I really do who though greg want to get into what your thoughts are because i just heard will cain during one of the commercials for e._s._p._n. Radio saying that the jerry jerry jones joke zeke who was benign and what i would say to will cain is not if it were your money not if you were holding out in the president of this company company as soon as you went out. They put someone else in your spot and he said <hes> will who right. You wouldn't find that quite as funny. It'd be belly laughing yeah if you were scared for your job if you turn if you're totally disposable the way you already s._p._f. Not him just anybody is e._s._p._n. I think what will was trying to say. Though is that zeke's you'd have. He should have full security. He should feel very secure and his place jerry jones the dallas cowboys and it was just kind of a joke but to your point you're right. I mean if our boss comes out and says that about well after two weeks off at someone comes up and puts up decent ratings. He's not laughing. I mean i don't care. I'm not laughing yeah it. It certainly not <hes> benign if the agent and the player feel disrespected by the comment you know when i first heard jerry jones say it my initial instinctive thought was art that he just just making a a an off hand quip to get those belly laughs from the media and the media always tend to over laugh whenever anybody says anything the least bit funny but i don't think it was an off hand quip <hes>. I think that was jerry jones <hes> playing hardball. I think that was him bluffing. In a in a game of poker <hes> i think he's trying to put more pressure on ezekiel elliott by making a comment that suggests you know what zico we're ready to move on without him. You better sign chris mortenson and <hes> explain to us and we'll get you that sound in a second the over laughing sound and the jerry jones down. He's signed greg. He just doesn't wanna play into that contra right but but and the hold out is what i mean chris mortenson told us and it's right that jerry jones as soon as the cameras go off. He's laughing to himself about all of it because what jerry jones has shown over time consistently is that he doesn't mind the circuits he really believes the p. T. barnum ideas of just give me your attention. Shen and i will find all the suckers because he doesn't think any of this is actually problematic. He does not mind hell man. He wasn't even finding finding the crimes of those glory day cowboys that problematic given that they kept the actual crimes not the sportsmanship crimes the crimes that ended up in the the courtroom because it was all part of cowboys being cowboys boys being boys..

"Not. Mark davis outta here. Man makes ten million a year. You think may ought to make that kinda money for ten. Damn years brown's got a ten year contract correct. I mean how much do you have to be to think well. We're calling about body bobblehead last week. I some we called greg in idiot. He was the thing he turned out to be right about that. We might wanna go sit with your father. How condom in the fall but technically right thank you sit with them to my god it here. It's the most obvious ever happen. It's the most obvious thing in the world that gruden is the boss of the raiders so because all three of you have mentioned myself to manage the sabotage my point before i even make it. We're not even on television agents. You guys are sitting in the penalty box knowing i just count workforce for being idiots three minutes back from vacation you. You know we're not on t._v. And no one can see his just said i said by golly. Go me not spend the rest of the show out there. Just get out of your good. God shocking development. I'm still here in a non shocking development of the most obvious thing. I i didn't wanna consent to them. I think there was a possibility that anybody would go pecking order though back in it so the thing that i was going to say that was neutered by three incompetent employees one after the other is i. I couldn't believe the gruden sent out to take the beating he sent he sent me out to tell everybody the thing that antonio brown it doesn't want to hear because he doesn't want his name on that. He wants his name on the support and i'm like oh my god. That's weak like you're the boss except when it's inconvenient the paycheck makes make sure the boss except like oh. I don't wanna bother antonio. I've already supported him publicly. Let me put some pressure on him with this guy mike you deliver that message. I would've loved to on what that meeting was like. No it was might go deliver this mess. This needs to be on hard knocks. It needs to be on hard knocks how the decision is being made on and who's going to go out there and ask whether antonio brown before he played a game right who's going to publicly go for the first time in the organization who's going to run counter turn to antonio brown and gruden sent me out there and that's what hired him for there may be but that ain't leadership like a for all this tough guy talk on knox for all the tough talking that he's doing on hard knocks sending out there to do that the sending a guy who's beneath you out out there to do that as management when your management ten years ten million dollars a year of men. You said that better beyond hard knocks. I don't think that'll be on harden. Uh-huh control that stuff like they'll be something around antonio brown some conversation but i don't think they'll give you the juicy well. It's always trailing a week anyway. So if it it happens you'll see it next week. I guess right. Do you guys think that the all in all out thing was a gruden thing or a mayor thing. It's a good question because i think it was a gruden thing through that parrot mayock that he's got cody. Thinks is the boss the boss get out again. I don't get out of here to penalties heck. The first segment our hungry real boss the ghost of al davis and we all know it welcome back then. I wanna go back away. I wanna go to another country again. He's been downplayed the boss of the raiders pecking in order to donlevatar you know you go to buy gas and it cost three forty nine point nine nine a gallon around all the numbers off. We're getting rid of change in this country round everything off include the tax and the total stugatz. It's really hard to stop the gas tags. Zero zero is i know it's like a game when you're feeling villain. Guess it's really it's always a one two four. You get really frustrated. You try it again. Yeah the put more gas than the guard and the car allows you to put gas in. I mean you can't stop it out to do. I have to stop at either zero.

"New orleans nice we've got two saints including the quarterback of the saints joining us will get to them a little bit later in the show. There are a number of things we need to get to after a few days off here for stugotz and i <hes> billy of course greets me with his terrible fear of how oh arafat is talking about video games not surprisingly we'll get to that in a second. Tonio owes phone that too that is greg. Cote is a a good initial contribution from you. How perfect is that right. There greg cody coming out of the box. I two minutes. He hasn't even said anything. There hasn't been a word oh the first sound and dan getting in the way of course and it happened right before the show that went off right before the show. I told them to turn it off but he was busy listening to his own voice in the open of our show. It's meiling because he he's just maximum bucks. Narcissist antonio wants to rail against energy star. We'll do that in a second but the first thing that i want want to get to is the question of antonio brown and there is something here that i thought was new. Even if you guys are tired of this antonio brown talk as i imagine many of you are but when you think what's most interesting there as this continues to be a plague for the raiders before they've played a game. What do you guys think is the most interesting part of that story the antonio brown story <hes> for me. You have a league that trying to make the game safer and part of the way they're doing. It is by issuing new helmets to the players and you have players say no. There's old helmet was a lot more comfortable. I don't care about player safety. Essentially i think antonio brown is actually catching too much. Flack <hes> because you know this is the helmet as the tool of his trade. He needs needs a helmet <hes> that he likes somehow and that is also benefiting his safety. It'd be like if you ask a baseball second baseman t to have a a certain glove glove that he faces a greg cody with a perfectly reasonable point because a helmet is like the fourth or fifth tool of his trade. His hands are number. One feet or high up there eight or higher up helmet gloves are up there on how i mean i would say helmet is probably at best for ends number. One who i i don't know vision could be number one agility to wait a minute for vision might be impacted by helmet. Okay forget about vision. I take that back then visit the last argument. Instinct is one no hands are one instinct is to gloves or three god-given ability kind of we'll put that first off the line feeder emporia god is watching antonio's behavior and saying. I didn't give him that ability. He was a six round pick. This has nothing to do with me. This is lucifer work goddess thing and i can make a helmet that everyone loves. It also keeps them say. Why don't they ask me. It's called the skull the skull the part about this though old that i found most interesting recently because i'm going to ask you an obvious question or what is what i think is an obvious question. Which is who's in charge. The raiders jon gruden may all i think really go sit outside. Aw i just a terrible god joke. His phone goes off. He's annoying me three minutes into me. Being back like three minutes in really mayo runs the raiders really gruden's box out of here in the pecking order. I understand what you're not. Mark davis outta here. Man makes ten million a year. You think may ought to make that kinda money for ten. Damn years brown's got a ten year contract correct. I mean how much do you have to be to think well. We're calling about body bobblehead last week..

"Get your button to camp. We have one hundred percent of the leverage and i'm not saying that tony polar is better than than zeke. He has played well in this preseason. How touchdown run against the rams. I thought he will for drives thing right. Yeah well yeah what he's been given the opportunity to do. He's played well and that that particular touchdown run presses the whole he gets the cutback on that touchdown run. He takes takes a hit. He breaks a tackle. He maintains balance. That's great that i mean that is awesome ezek. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna go that far. You know you and i play with terrell. Well davis and i always joke around that. He used to make up for a multitude of sins so like the year. That terrell got hurt in nineteen ninety nine right had we had in orlando's gary. He came in and ran for twelve hundred yards t._d. Would have fifteen hundred sixteen hundred years. Mike anderson at fourteen no disrespect to those guys but t._d. Would've had t._v. Two thousand awesome yeah just a different human being and that's zeke elliott but can they maintain or can they manage without zeke yeah i think they can and so i think this is gamed gamed yeah they can win some games the objective skipping the what is it. This is all right. Skill objective is to win the first two games da yeah you ought his. Oh we go into the super bowl. This miami is going to be painted blue and silver yada yada yada just blew all of the all of a sudden objective with two games. Okay we'll let him sweat and sit in kabul for two games and then we'll see what happened to in. Oh here recom- whatever you owe it to whatever you do you the other side. You can't just give me one. I witnessed and owen to start without emmett smith but they had in place of him and a kid named eric last week from alabama who just wasn't very good. Tony pollard is legit. That's all i can say is i've seen enough to say he is a legit it stand in starting running back with whom they could win two games against the giants and the red and you've noticed that a one drive when he's playing. He's going down to give the guy that's gonna. We'll be working at u._p._s. Driving saw a shifty glider who knows how to carry the rock. That's what i saw and i will put my reputation on the fact that he is legit jitter nuff they could win a couple of games with him and once zeke does come back and jerry made this point later in this same conversation that started with z cou they will have a one one in a one day and zeke should embrace that because he's carrying the ball too much for his own good. How long is he going to lash. Shannon sharpe says not very long. We're here this kid. Tony pollen will extend zeke's playing what he with zeke also understand if he doesn't get those carries if somebody comes in and divvied up his carries he's not gonna have the big yardage which hurts his argument that i need to big payday. Yeah he yeah if he gets a big payday. He won't mind is leading the carry because it won't will be important to him. He knows now he's like. He's proven that he can carry the load. This will lessen. Some of the low vic says i want you to lessen some of the load. If if you give me more money kim the match your question. Let's say for the sake of argument. Something came up in. You had to take ernestine somewhere and you weren't able to do. I don't have to take her anywhere. I want take. Would you take the day off and they had a feeling and they come to they. Ask charlie's skip wasn't in the day how charlie they you can say skip who exactly her yeah exactly. Don't marginalize..

"The m._v._p. Of the super bowl will this is baker saying to his team. I don't care who it is. I'll i'll tell the truth about anybody but the thing is is that guys are already going to try to knock your block off now. You're gonna get guys guys you get guys. They want to shut you up. You don't really want to take a missing leaks. I just like i said you can be you know what i'm saying that what did he get out of the biscuit yep so he also said later in this past that remember the notorious flag plant at midfield okay okay what they say upset ohio state at ohio state in urban meyer called it the best game any rival who ever played against me and then he took the flag because ohio state had done it to o._u. At o._u. The year before it was devastation wipeout game mm-hmm and obviously i'm a longtime fan and then he planted the flag at midfield and then he said it was just draw a jaw dropping the higher ups at o._u. Forced him to to apologize for this one reason they forced him and apologizes because he was a heisman candidate. Run and heisman voters don't love flag plants at midfield so they were. I'm trying to save him from himself to apologize for it. Even though he said on scale of one to ten he had zero contrition about this. They realize you're you're not going to be here forever. Yeah we're gonna have to play. Somebody's teeth people wind flags on in the middle of the o._u. Yeah for the risk that i put him for perpetuity. Do it okay so he played a great game. He planted the flag and it probably helped him get the number one overall pick yeah. I think that's what john dorsey would say. I want that guy on my team even though skill even though you don't have attrition don't throw you under the bus pass. I know it doesn't do you any good store unapologetic logistic and the last night he said you know. I may have heard some ohio fans then but i think we're good now. Would we agree that you agree with this. I mean you love bicker. You okay with the students look around talking about other people. Doing my job in a poor was not like that though right you like just like that. He is who she is and that he owns it. He owns it. He's never going to change and that's just what we're gonna. Get and so yes shannon. I'm okay with it. Oh you need to be okay with that. He skills here. This is a bridge too far from him. Say i'm gonna say with baker on this says honest. We can all learn a little that every so often okay jerry and zeke. Are they helping or hurting themselves right now. We have marshall earthier. We'll get his take next. Jerry jones may have unintentionally lee stirred the pot with ezekiel elliott and it seems to have gotten the running backs attention after the cowboys second preseason game jerry jokingly said zeke who when discussing discussing the performance of rookie running back tony pollard but think wasn't laughing yesterday zeke's agent told e._s._p._n. Quote. I didn't think it was funny and neither did zeke. We actually thought it it was disrespectful. We're now joined by f s one fell analysts mark chalet earth mark all right does this back and forth between zeke and jerry. It's going to help or hurt and go well first off. What's disrespectful that that he told the joke is that disrespect is it disrespectful zeke get suspended. Is it disrespectful that every time he goes goes out he gets in a fight. His owners got to stand up for disrespectful like i mean you know what take a look in the mirror. If we wanna talk about disrespect back i wanna go tit for tat. We can do that all day long. I think ultimately what this says <hes> to to zeke into his agent is hey guys you wanna deal. Oh jerry jones has a history of taking care of the players to take care of him. You wanna deal..

"Up. Now on the locker room need to build him okay but he's tried to make the other receivers. Look bad right yes but but you need to a different situation i was a lot of coaches need to build him up. Saying what you got is a different situation here so with that is almost the same as the lady on you had a guy. James connor turned out to be a great a great he you did a great last year and right. Now you have a possibility of anything so you want to build him up. You wanna give him confidence because if it comes down to it the wake exists talking. He's not coming back until you get one. If that can't be worked out you want to build confidence in your running back that is there and like you said labiancas now in new york connor is still there. I hope it don't work out like that because i feel like if they get rid of zeke. It's a bad situation waist and even jerry himself said one two combination here. He did all right mr sharp for me. I'm not talking to you about another man's money. No question <hes> for me. I believe everybody in the cowboys. Locker room won't seek to get his money and if i'm ezekiel elliott i'm not concerned with anybody. Else is not my job to worry about a team. My job is to worry about being in my best self that i'm not going to be selfish player when it comes to being where i need to be everything results re- revolves around me but i won't get my money. I won't get what <hes> without appeal. I'm old in all these people talking about what has two years left. Dan bryan had two years left and they're cutting it. That was no problem so you don't get to have it both way. You don't say well if someone is not fulfilling the obligation of the contract. I'm going to release you but if someone outperformed the contract you like now you side the deal zeke understand. He's never going to get a big payday. After this contract yeah that's not how it works for running backs so he needs to get ah for running backs because it's the easiest position to transition. If there is such a turn easy transition college the pro is running back but basically from the time he'd like twenty one to twenty seven thousand metric years. Everybody that's going to get another contract is is if that is even at macau skills. Excuse just brought about the booth. He'd been eighteen thousand nine hundred so don't get more money. Mark cuban will get another contract big contract. If he plays way audibly yeah zeke week knows he's not going to get it because they're about to put three twenty plus three thirty three hundred and forty plus carries so the opportunity for him to get a big payday down. The road is either now or never and for me. I'm always taking the players side because the guy stares. He got more money than all the players in the locker. Will they never gonna tell a player bro. You need to come on in here. Take a look. No no no. No you hold out. I guess what i'm looking. Oh i saw he got guess what i'm coming. I'm trying to get me some with one hundred. So what if you're the leader of the dallas cowboys and we get to labor day and nothing's happened and jerry jones pulls pulls you aside outside the locker room and says hey shannon. I offered him todd gurley money. I offered him a dollar more than todd gurley and he wants. It's way more than todd gurley and i just can't stomach that whereas i don't think that's right for the long term good at all team. How would you respond zeke and tell him it feels like he's worth more than that and i'm not going to tell another man that you're not if that's what he wants. He's not going to settle for anything less. That's just what uh-huh tell y'all notaire you. He won't inaudible when you bet again pigeon hole more whatever let me i'm going to be on your jerry. I got the pulse of this team..

He takes the he wants them to take it easy on him because he's thirty nine years old eight thirty thirty five thirty eight. I don't guess what you might as well because he going to be n._b._a. Thirty nine oh is we'll be sure will be that's the plan with to pull groins ronnie. <hes> okay we we both about the cowboys but what about their our locker room how they feel about right now. James harrison gives us stocks. Jerry jones may have unintentionally stirred the pot with ezekiel elliott and it seems to have gotten the running backs attention after the cowboys second preseason game jerry jokingly said z. coup when discussing the performance of rookie running back tony pollard but zeke wasn't laughing. Yesterday's zeke's agent told e._s._p._n. Quote i didn't i think it was funny and neither did zeke. We actually thought it was disrespectful and we're joined now by f s one n._f._l. Analyst james harrison it is good to have you with us around the corner so james. Here's the question for you if you were a veteran in the cowboys lock room. How would you be feeling about this situation right now. I have been a veteran in the locker room so to be honest with you. I'm offer players getting money at anytime. They want to get it so for me to be upset upset that you're doing it now. With two years left that would be wrong because the goal of this game is to go out there and make as much money as you can and try and win as many super who says you can't right and right now. He's in a position where i don't see the cowboys doing much without him. You may you may love your quarterback but without without dead running back back to their quarterback has to prove that he's worth. What are you trying to get forty million dollars so i am with speculated between thirty to thirty. I'm just saying i don't i don't see them being able to do that without him. And the comment you know jerry they cut it up. You know he went back through. He laughed it off and he also winked at the camera said zeke. It's not at your expense. You know you're going to get paid so those zeke in the agent didn't seem to take an awesome. How would it took it personally because you're talking about my career right now. You're talking about money for him to joke about it a player. That's not a joke. We're at a point right now where i'm trying to. I'm trying to get this going to be my first big contract and you let it go. You play running for exactly and i'm. I'm trying to get everything i can get so i could see how zeke took disrespectful because right right now. We're talking about my career. We're talking about money. That's not a laughing matter but also see how jerry he was just trying to lighten it up and it was a bad choice so if you're a veteran leader in that that locker room if you're on the order of jason witten but you've been there for a while and you know you're not going to make it to the super bowl without number twenty one as you get more and more anxious as the days dwindle toward the season opener. What what are you thinking about doing or you'd thinking about trying to pull jerry aside at some point and say hey you you know and we know you gotta get john for awesome for me is to talk to demand is going to pay him the money. Would you do that. I would i would try to if it got to at that point like we need him without him. We're in we're in a bad situation is not something that you know. We're gonna go into week one too and see how it works out because those two games can be what caused you to miss. Would you call zeke at any point just to try to talk. I don't really talk him through anything other than hey..

They're kind of like metallic blue blue like you gotta subliminal impulse because you know what's gone. Teams are zeke ginny. Can you imagine what miami will be like filled filled with cowboy faithful and they'll be all over this man will he will need bodyguards to go out in public because you will need a falangist audiard's but sometimes the mind will not even allow you to imagine things. I can't imagine what it must be like to be basal or bill gates. My mind won't even let me fathom adam anything like that. How did your mind fathom something about the cowboys. Being in bolton is so album is so beyond the realm of possibility now. Let me give you the biggest picture. Here's the jury is thinking of because this is what he does best not football stuff. This is negotiation negotiating. He now has his locker room lined up on edge on on high alert for. Are you going to get one done or two or maybe three done before. This is all happening. What if he gets all three done right on time time for game. One in the momentum is lift off momentum. We're the locker room says we got paid. It get three done by opening. I willing to read a week paid taken. Have you better weaver hulo. That already turned down thirty me. The man turned the thirty million a year for that. That's what i do. I know his agent hot brands who lives in atlanta a lot of spinning classes. What so you took spink less with his sister. She in the class and that's how you know. Todd friends took single sister. I've met are free talk francis from atlanta okay under the umbrella of your company see okay yeah. I know you didn't know that so well. I didn't know that but it that means in swat that means that todd france does not give discounts okay. He's keith harry winston. He's tiffany. They don't do discount wait. You told me the dak prescott is an average quarterback. It doesn't matter so if you're jerry jones. You'd be saying you better take a discount because you're no good. No no no no jerry. Keep saying ryan garrison the opposite of what you what i'm saying jerry said he the top tier quarterback and deserves to be paid so he also he talked so much he gets himself into by it talks himself about zeke and then he backs himself into a corner with back talk phrase eight giving you a discount. I don't know who amar's agent but i feel very comfortable walkable and say he's not giving a discount either. The nuclear bombs will drop in the media on on the week before i told told you i won't even start to get anxious until labor day and then all of a sudden it's gonna go boom boom bone. The biggest bomb attack zeke amari amari boom boom boom and all of a sudden liftoff in the locker room. We got this super bowl here. We come the biggest bomb. That's ever been dropped. Not not a soccer heroes assuming is going to be on your season. Zeke elliott is halfway through the season and he's still in kabul and your records to in seven. That's the bomb that i'm waiting to drop aw man. I can't wait to come here every day. You know what's come every day with.
"zeke" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"The quarterback is said he is legit and yet in the big picture is i told you he's not easycall elliott but you could win a couple of games with him so now zeke and rocky are sitting back in kabul. I soon rocky. It gets lonely in kabul because you have a lot of time to think because there's not that much going on down there. Was he thinking about how you're in the morning. Okay benjamin banger in the fourth week in the fourth we it's a long time to just say you know like four days in kabul was fun but five six seven eight ten twelve fourteen eighteen and you're starting to mark off the days on the calendar and jerry knows the psyche of zeke is a football psyche. He loves to be with the fellas thelma's room. This kid was born to play football emmett smith not so much didn't love practicing didn't really love playing football didn't love as he called it. The car car wreck that i experienced every sunday run the football. What do you call those days. Zeke gun talk about car wrecks. He just loves the content he looks for contact. Emit ran away way. Zeke runs to contact the psyches are different so all of a sudden. He lit zeke's fire where they're going to be thinking cheese should he. He lives zeke elliott fire so much z. Came back to dallas got a haircut a change of clothes back eight capo <hes> that was already bad. Why why do you think okay so then what is going on here. Do you think jerry jones is losing any sleep about rocky. Our snow saying we're gonna was funny in fact doc. We found it disrespectful. You think jerry's lost one second asleep over that you think zeke comeback. We go were tony political. Take my it became. I think he's starting to think about job but again. The ultimate game being played here as could the cowboys win two games without it's not a question that's buddha. That's a generalization to questionnaires. Well you you the question neil candidate chain they win the super bowl tony or my question mike politics pretty good and you know what zeki and holding out the whole by by the way the reason jerry's not lose any sleep is because he's thinking. I wonder if zeke would stay down in kabul for five years. 'cause i got him for five one. If i wanna really really just put a stranglehold on this what could he do to contractual years and three tag garrison ended hold on if i'm not mistaken take it was in february that i don't know how much more time i gotta be things <music> jerry guy five years jerry cat five. Just kill so okay. I'm going to defend jerry jones because he said several things on saturday evening in hawaii after that game and they got swept right under your little carpet. Traditionally official politics involved if i could read one quote. This is jerry jones right after each said z. cu. We could just go through this if he's talking about mike pollard here but he says if pollard continues this through the next several weeks. They'll really compliment what we're doing. Zeke not replace that and i mean that and nobody's getting cute here. It'll certainly be a great compliment to have a great running game..

"Who's not as special as zeke elliott which means i'm gonna limit your passing game. That's the different now. He's like a whole lot more ordinary right because i think he's a relatively. I want to say ordinary quarter. We spent an ordinary but he's not great no he's. He's a he's a good players a good quarterback. He was under pressure in hawaii wii. <hes> took a sack had some trouble getting the football off when there's pressure. If there's no run threat then load up and go after dak prescott make him beat you with his art or melvin gordon's the same kinda guy correct. What do you mean in terms of that sort of three down defense tilting town. I think melvin gordon is fantastic antastic. I think melvin gordon running. The football is dangerous. I think is one of the best running backs in the league. I think he's just a little early with his contract demands he really is he doesn't have the todd early numbers to back up his demands of todd gurley. Money is pretty pretty close yeah and and you need the starts to. That's the bigger issue. Elliott's been healthy. Not correct zeke has been helping healthy except when he's suspending him so right so i'm just going off melvin gordon and todd gurley he wants todd gurley money without todd gurley numbers. If if you have a guy in you if you if you can give i just don't understand and they they who is a jalen brown. Just <hes> in dallas yeah yes the linebacker greats you wanna talk about great story thirty five mill- guarantee per guy who tore in jail and came back and it was undrafted great linebacker. I gotta pay gotta pay him. They have a safety coming up to the needs to be paid. Yes <hes> and they have dak and they have a z. You can't pay all these doesn't matter better pay zeke. I zeke is the engine. He is the tip of the spear. He's the straw. That's that's what the rams did. They pay their running back. I right well the came up first. I say but you see there are ways to put it off. Not you want to but the rams lock the rams lockup early before they needed the problem with dallas. Is you still have to pay deck and deck wants forty. Mil daqing wants big big money. That's probably the rams. They gotta pay goff while you've you've got todd under contract. You're you've got your other best weapon on offense under contract. Your receivers are all under contract. <hes> jared goff will be next. All the dominoes are in place here here in l. a. in dallas you've got a mess what can happen between because i think they still have to pay amari cooper right in dallas yeah because again. If you're gonna pay you gotta pay cooper. Have somebody throw the ball pretty much. If you out derwyn james's injury feary might add pressure to get got melvin gordon back in camp because you need your offense be a little bit better but they also have philip rivers that got keenan allen. They've got <hes> acura. Who's a little better probably allers allers better than <hes> alfred morris who said sproles like oh. That was <hes> ireland right now. He's more spurs like runnin henderson the roles you can actually run the ball tremendous. He's not very big kick. Give it to him thirty five times game but you can you can. He's capable runner shirt supposed supposed to one of these guys who is a great receiver backfield who you can't really give the ball to true which limits their affect the little guy..

"Interesting. Though like if zeke doesn't play dax gonna get killed my god why would you why wouldn't you just load up and come after after dak prescott got if zeke's not back the so they're the only protection he has besides that great offensive line is the fact that zeke elliott is a run threat. He's a problem album out of the backfield. He's a problem carrying the football that changes how you call defensive game where you have right now is a situation then where zeke's best leverage is to let dak prescott be exposed and not get anywhere near the forty million that he that's what did he let the team go to and then jerry saved and and paid him so. Do you think he plays in week one zeke elliott. No i think jerry dixon. I think jerry jones does with jerry jones does he's just not going going to give ground on which he gives ground grudgingly well. How much do you give him though because i don't understand this is the part about the the back the running back thing that i don't get i i understand that these guys have a shelf life of four hours <hes>. I understand that in the in the n._f._l. Today you can get by with a committee. There too ended monsters. There are three hundred some of them work really well ingram and alvin kamara to hold out. You do have to hold out for the special right. I get it some guys. Some teams can get away with with like the chargers. They're going to get away with by committee but because they have a quarterback and they have the defense. What's the difference between as a defensive player. You were you go into your meeting and you're trying to figure out what's coming here. Does whatever if you know that player a is really only gonna when he's on the field. They're going to run either between the tackles going to run. These words and this package is basically off. The table player be comes on the field okay. He's a receiving threat. You gotta watch it. Whatever and you know no that's coming to. That's an advantage for you. If you have one guy who might split out he might be right here. That is different and i don't understand why it's not treated as here's an easier way to look at zeke. Elliott is in the backfield. I would have to commit the eighth guide to the box to stop him because we can't stop him with seven. We can't trade one for one but he can also suddenly split out and go catch passes right but that's that's what helps dak prescott because that safety whoever has the lineup in the box which means you're gonna face man covered somewhere. There's going to be manned coverage. He's he just has to find it without zeke elliott but i keep two safeties on the roof. I'll trust my front seven to stop. You're running back..
"zeke" Discussed on Mindfulness Mode
"Mobile app and a virtual radio station to its music artists from all over the world submit their music. So a lot of cool things to talk about Zeke. But what does mindfulness mean to you? What's it all about in your life? Sure. So mindfulness to me means being aware, they more than anything else and kind of being present as a creative you sometimes get very stuck in your own head, and my eyes can show it. And so it's interesting that the idea of trying to bring mindfulness to my to my own world and my life as a matter of trying to step outside of my surroundings and become more and more aware of the little things, you know, natural things, you know, in in nature, you know, the mechanics behind something just a fine fascination in something that gets me away from what I'm currently working like almost like like like a respite of my from my creativity for the most part. Well, I'm fascinated to learn about what you're currently working out. It's a project called billboard. Can you? Tell us more about it from your perspective. Oh, absolutely. Sure. So billboard is a it's a lot of things is a feature film where the feature film focuses on a radio station that is struggling to succeed they pull it the oldest trek radio, which is the wacky radio contest. And so they decided to host a billboard sitting contest or four people live on a catwalk in front of a billboard two one survives or remains. I should say to win a mobile home.
