The other issue is whether a deal that the comedians attorney said they made with prosecutors should have shielded Cosby from ever being.

Of course, I by friend and Co host zooming in Dr Steven. Tailback he's a quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care, and he continues to fight on the front lines of the covert battle here in California for which we are eternally grateful. Steve. How you doing? Hey Bill. Good to see you. And R various special guest Dr, George Rutherford. He is the internationally lauded head of infectious disease and global epidemiology at the UCSF School of Medicine. He is also UCSF's professor of pediatrics and adjunct. Professor School of Public Health at California Berkeley. I had a chance to print out Georgia's see. It's one hundred, twenty, six pages long with two hundred and twenty one published papers and so many important accolades. So I'm going to read the whole thing to you now. Only. Kidding. Dr Authored although socially distance. Thanks so much for joining real pleasure. So Professor of epidemiology and biostatistics director at the prevention and Public Health Group. What do you do? Well, I'm an academic. So I teach school right I do research and I provide advice. So the mission of anybody in Academic Vinnie academic medical entity is education research, clinical care and public service. So my clinical care is really the clinical practice of public. Health and I advise the City Health Department San Francisco Department of Public Health, the California Department of Health and some of the various health departments around the state on approaches to controlling the Kobe deputy hammock. You did mention that your research is partly funded by CDC. Yes. That's correct. Yeah. Hell is a bit about that and how that affects your work during these crazy days. So I've worked with CDC for decades and most recently. I've been doing predominantly HIV related work in developing countries as part of the Presidential Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief I, have a large competent, very competent research group that basically tries to help governments and occasionally universities but mostly governments CDC missions in developing countries to understand what's going on with their. HIV. Epidemics, how things are working to evaluate progress and to discover new ways to try and stop the spread of HIV and try and. Improve. Clinical outcomes of people who already have HIV. So cases per one million population worldwide is running at about three thousand, five, hundred cases per one million in the US is running at about nineteen thousand, three hundred. So did we screw up or do we have a population that's more difficult to manage? Yes and yes, we have six fold higher numbers of cases than we should have and other countries like India may eventually catch up. I think that the US mister major opportunity early on and that was the problem with not having up tests and having the wrong tests and having tested didn't work and trying to control tests and trying to restrict out tests were being used for whom they are being used. I think they've always been you know a whole myriad lack of policy leadership which the states. have taken over and I think first of all the bay area in which the six county health departments acted in concert to move to a shelter in place ordinance early on on March. Sixteenth, and there is a very good reason for March sixteenth it was the day before Saint Patrick's Day, and then later the state moved in the same direction. So I think California's really been a leader in this. Now, you wouldn't know it from the last two months or three months since mid June under there's a huge wave of new infection a disappointed but I think we still are leaders in this. We showed data today in medicine grand rounds at UCSF that looked at numbers of deaths per hundred cases and in New York ten percent in. San. Francisco, it's zero point, seven percent. So it's less than one percent in San Francisco and the next best in a big city is something I one and a half percent did we screw up as a country? Totally? Did we screw up regionally in the north in northern California I don't think. So we scrub stay somewhat I think we made the reopening little to easy S. Really Hindsight Wealth speak that hindsight just for a second I mean in New York they've had four hundred, forty, five, thousand cases in thirty, three, thousand deaths. So they got a hold of this thing long before we did but we've already exceeded the case we're up to seven, hundred, fifty, thousand cases almost eighty percent more than they've had, and we've had fourteen thousand deaths. Half of what they've had when you say that we as a country may have screwed up, do we have a hold of this thing now and how much of it is that the population is not wearing masks enough especially young people who've decided that they're not as susceptible what New York was bad luck and they had continuous importation from Europe and may have had who? knows. Thousands of cases imported from Europe each one of which starts a new chain of transmission. We in San Francisco we probably at tens coming from Asia and you know the first death care was on February six dot and that was diagnosed retrospectively. Womanhood attended a convention in Las Vegas choose living in Santa, Clara County near San Jose and that convention probably people from China. or at least in the in the hotel that's probably where she got it. If she'd come home and hit a large crowd event at the wrong time with very high levels of virus inter nose and throat and spread it around we could have been just as bad office New York but we weren't and that's really a question of luck. So New York at Bath Block. But guess what we do. This was coming since the thirty first of December. That's when the UBA provincial CDC notified the central Chinese CDC that Oh, by the way, we may have a little problem here the central Chinese CD setup team to Wuhan on December thirty first basically started began an immediate investigation started closed down and drain the whole thing under control. That was the starting Bell I. Mean there was basically two months lost now CDC will say, well, we were having we we developed tests. We did this. We did that. Yeah, that's true. But then the FDA threatened to decertify their laboratory that was producing testing. They produce tests in the hundreds, not in the tens of thousands which was what was needed thousands. Of people came from Europe to New York and it got spread around helped by a couple of super spreader events where people in fact, at one person they affect hundreds of people at the same
"bell" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell
"Eight and eight. So. If you thought it was just random the stats will prevail. then. What why not keep Garrett like fundamentally believe that why'd Statistically Last Season Was Dallas's bashed year probably the century or well bill parsoes thirteen hundred let's just say this in the last ten years. This might be even who knows even I they did go thirteen they went really well with doc his. First Year. I. Thought I know parcells had a greater. So maybe I'm getting into the we one of the best years of the century statistically for the Dallas Cowboys was last year. You agree I do, and that's a year you fire a coach you've been fighting it seems not to fire, but then you say, well, we'll keep the OC. That me light what was going on it which I can see that maybe he liked things generally but just Garrett's getting so much heat. Let's just get some new blood, but now you hire an offensive guy. And then say, you can't you know I don't know what the right answer is. What I know is losses cause stress Dallas is a boiler, a potboiler of stress. I think a team like the Patriots lose a couple they just keep rolling. Trying on to Cincinnati. Dallas loses one or two more of these. Before winning many he could be a real combustible situation and it was a gut wrenching loss last year Dallas one in six and close games.

So when miles gray and I drove the Mazda C X thirty from Palm Desert San Diego I really enjoyed the scenery along the way I feel like the car itself helped a lot that like the interior of the car is crafted with what they call an essential EST approach.

The Birth Of The Greenback
"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure.

Slow-moving Hurricane Sally takes aim at Gulf Coast
"The Gulf Coast is bracing for another hurricane. The National Hurricane Center says Sally, which was a tropical storm has strengthened into a Category one Hurricane Kelly has already been dumping rain on Florida and is likely to strengthen as it heads towards the Louisiana coast. And New Orleans. Joining us now is Jeff Hoffman, director and chief meteorologist at the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network. Jeff Where is Sally now? And what's its track and timing for land landfall? Good afternoon. Jeremy Sally is of course, as you mentioned now Hurricane it's about due south of Pensacola, and it's moving slowly to the West West Northwest and expected to continue strengthening it underwent a rapid intensification cycle this morning. Winds are now gusting well into Hurricane force is expected to potentially come close to a Category two before landfall. On that landfall track has shifted slightly to the East. Because this morning, Gerry the center reformed a bit to the east as well which that tends to happen sometimes when storms undergo rapid intensification landfalls now projected to be somewhere along the southeast coast of Louisiana, southern coast of Mississippi and Alabama sometime Tuesday afternoon to Tuesday night. Emphasis on the word slow. It's a very slow moving system, of course, which will enhance the potential for flooding. That's going to be the big story. I think with now Hurricane Sally well, and Louisiana's governor John Bell. Edwards has already declared a state of emergency for Louisiana, which is still dealing with the damage from Hurricane Laura that made landfall there just three weeks ago with 150 mile per hour winds. Some people still don't have power. Sounds like Sally is not going to be as bad as Laura. In terms of the widespread wind damage likely not that remember every hurricane or every tropical system, not just hurricanes are very unique, imposed their own hazards. This one is a slow moving system. It's goingto produce a prolonged period of life threatening storm surge. For pretty much from the mouth of the Mississippi River all the way over to maybe Pensacola and then because the storm is going to be in the vicinity of the northern Gulf Coast states for two, maybe three days, we're talking. Maybe Wednesday or Thursday before it pulls up into the southern appellations. Very heavy rain inland. Flooding freshwater flooding flash flooding. We're talking about a 2 to 3 Day event here that could produce rain totals in the order of 10 to 20 inches nearer and east of where the center tracks. I'm looking at the National Hurricane Center website right now, and there are 1234567 Systems out there. Not all of them have become even tropical storms yet, but this is a pretty busy season. Yeah. When it comes to records, Where do you begin? I mean, right now we have five tropical cyclones or named storms that is tied for the record a same time on were now only one name away from having to move into the Greek alphabet. Eyes to certainly what they call a hyperactive season and we have broken. I think I'm losing count, but somewhere over 13 or 14 records in terms of the earliest, a particular name storm forms The numbers keep falling that we've had a fairly weak systems Other than Laura and Sally is, of course, a significant threat to the northern Gulf Coast states. But for example, in Florida they've we've missed most of the storms in Florida on DH. There's still a potential we still several more weeks of the peak of hurricane season to go. It is Jeff Hoffman, director and chief meteorologist at the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network. As we keep an eye on Sally, which, as we said, is now a hurricane heading toward the Louisiana Coast, Jeff Thanks as always. All right. Thank you.
What were expecting in the PS5 showcase
"So Sony Holding this PS five showcase on Wednesday a week after Microsoft held its own xbox event. So Oscar, what are you expecting? Are we finally going to get a price that is de definite? Expectation with this show, there is obviously the big questions. When's it coming out and the price? So yeah. Those are the two. Obviously there's GonNa be some info about the launch games but yes, with this presentation, this is going reveal all it's gonna lay everything down and skin say here's what it is and get ready. So what are you expecting pricewise? Right now, the expectation is the. to a, there's a digital version of the PS five with no OPCO drive and the sort of standard version with the optical drives so. For the standard version, which should have all the bills whistle. So to speak that were pretty much were all expecting a five hundred dollar price points for the digital version were looking more like four hundred the really the only difference between the two the optical drives so far that we know unless soda comes out and make some other changes. But consider there's not much difference. We don't expect with go below the three ninety, nine 'cause w really big cut. into the into some profits, got it, and so let's let's stack this up against Microsoft which announced its own pricing last week. What are the xbox series X. and series s cost? Well, that was a big surprise last week it was a it was leaked initially than my Marquesa finally confirmed that yes, there is GonNa be to xboxes the S previously codename De la Carte is to ninety nine. That was the big reveal edit is a very big reveal. The KONTOS haven't been to ninety nine in quite a few generations and for Gen Gaming. It's Really a low price and every the ideal the strategy behind it is what we're thinking. Yourself said, Hey, not going to undercut us again like they did with the playstation forward. So we're just GONNA go right in with this three hundred dollar council. It's going to have next Gen graphics but does have an optical drive. has half the hard drive space and a can't perform get render as good. A graphics as the standard version would just five hundred dollars. So that is what? Microsoft with the big enough to saying, Hey, we got you covered if you need save money or if you want all the bells and whistles, you go for the five hundred dollars and they're both coming out November. Right and that that money equation I mean it's more important ever right now, right we were in the middle pandemic when the middle of a recession with millions of people are jobs money is tight. All around is a lot of uncertainty. So I get I appreciate that Microsoft would factor that into the equation with the pricing that said You know there, there are some drawbacks of the series s I'm curious with with some of those pricing in place and I know we don't yet have Sony yet confirmed but. The equation for you on which console you should buy or if you should buy any of these consoles this holiday season. It always comes down to the Games. That's really what is important. But What's interesting is Marcus Like I said in the previous previous podcast. They are shooting to be this all encompassing services service package so They want to the big. You're GONNA push when starts September twenty seconds. So the big thing they're gonNA push is this xbox all access, which is for the s twenty, five dollars a month you get the ultimate game pass. which includes Xbox live in game pass and the you get that and the series s for twenty five dollars a month for two years, which is a pretty crazy deal because. The Game Password. That launches. Officially. A It's it's tech lean. Beta will let me it's kind of the. kind of kind of fish lead launched not really kinda sort of we up doing it but with game pastors but hundred hundred, fifty games. So right at the box, if you do this process with the Xbox L. Access, you're GONNA get the game you're going to get you're GonNa get all these Games get the console twenty five dollars a month. And that's it. So and then if you WANNA go to step up that's that's thirty five dollars a month. So it's not a big deal.
Fast Food Giants are Reinventing the Restaurant, Pandemic Style
"Not so long ago fast food restaurants were looking for ways to get you to stay a little longer they sprucing up their dining rooms and building ball pits for the kids after all the more time at your table the more likely you are to order another menu item or two, but dining in is so two thousand nineteen isn't it? Now thanks in part to the pandemic, these quick service eateries or redesigning their restaurants to get you in and out as fast as possible. Burger, King has just unveiled its pandemic inspired restaurants of the future. There are two concepts, both of which maximize social distance. The smaller of the two designs has no dining room at all. Instead, the would-be dining space is used for additional drive through lanes two lanes to be exact. Once your order is ready, a conveyor belt will deliver it to your car window. Of course, if you're craving more human contact, you can also go old school and walk up to an order window. The second concept is a t shaped two storey restaurant with the kitchen. Upstairs this, let's Burger King devote more real estate to park in order spots in various drive-thru options the companies. Also, experimenting with lockers where you can pick up your food, you get the locker number and a unique combination when you order on the APP, the idea is to make the experience as contact free as possible, and that's important to customers drive throughs and meal delivery services like Rub and eats have been a lifeline for burger king as indoor dining was banned or restricted during a large part of the pandemic CNN reports in the second quarter through sales made up eighty five percent of the company's total US sales. Burger King says it will be testing. It's new concepts in warm climate areas like Florida, and the Caribbean but no word on exactly when that will start. Another major fast-food player that's also trying to get you out of its restaurants quickly is Taco Bell. TACO Bell so-called go mobile locations have been in development for a few years but the pandemic accelerated plans for them according to nation's restaurant news. These locations are smaller because like Burger kings, restaurants of the future. They also eliminate dining space also liked burger king concept. You can place or on the TACO BELL APP and have your meal brought out to you by a bellhop get the company will begin opening new stores early next year the design is a far cry from the one that the TACO giant unveiled in early March, a gaming concept restaurant plan to test in California customers would. be able to play video games in addition to dining and in January burger king announced plans to make gets dining experience a little posher the king plan to make over a Saint Louis location with white subway tiles on the floor bench seats inspired by classic cadillacs and warm lighting retail wire reported. You might be munching on your fries, but you'd be doing it in style. Now, a combination of pandemic dining restrictions and changing customer behavior has made such concepts as Cadillac benches obsolete. Well, it was fun while it lasted, but it's time to say so long to indoor play grounds and Walker inspired light fixtures for the time being at least fast food customers are opting out of dining in.

"I was lucky enough to have a lesson there in the Nineteen Ninety S. Once the bally's unlocked, it may be leave it to the balance with one hand on the lip of the bell and the other braced on the frame. The Bells are then pushed over the balancing turn to ring rounds. As the bell swings into its pit on the head stock rises the ring at uses the hand that was on the frame to push the head stuck down to maintain momentum. A I is quite unnerving to realize that as you're pushing down on the head stock to bring the full circle, the self is rising high above you. It's also vital to grasp the moving head stock well away from the edge, or there's a risk to your thumb as the head start passes the frame where there's only a very small gap. Each ringer then turns to repeat the action with the other arm had stock as the bell swings the other way. Possibly, the hardest thing is to move your body to the same rhythm as the bell so that Hans an arms are not in the wrong place at the wrong time. To set the bill, the ring applies a bit of extra forced to the headstone and virtually catches the bell as it swings to the balance before resting in its set position. Because of the way, the bells rung and the fact that the rings where defenders because of the noise method ringing really isn't practical. It is possible to wrinkle changes or to hunt the trouble through the other full bells twice to add a bit of variation and returned to rounds. All of this of course is highly skilled and potentially dangerous, and there have inevitably been the odd or to in the past. But with proper tuition can skill the East Burger. Bells continue to ring out regularly. Thanks to a dedicated band of local ringers. Plenty of clips on Youtube of the bells being rung. If you want to see how it's done, we will include a link to one of these youtube videos as well as to photos relating to some of the other.

Now, <Speech_Male> this might actually be an upgrade <Speech_Male> for the jets. <Speech_Male> Oh Line. <Speech_Male> However, I <Speech_Male> am very concerned about <Speech_Male> how they're going to Mesh <Speech_Male> with Levy on bell <Speech_Male> who runs with a unique <Speech_Male> running style <Speech_Male> where he often hesitates <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> then evaluates <Speech_Male> the blocking scheme <Speech_Male> of his <Speech_Male> Oh line and then makes <Speech_Male> his cut <Speech_Male> not being familiar <Speech_Male> with the line and how <Speech_Male> they set their block is <Speech_Male> going to be a big. Disadvantage <Speech_Male> to Levian. <Speech_Male> I expect bell <Speech_Male> will struggle early <Speech_Male> in the year with <Speech_Male> these changes to the <Speech_Male> old line bell <Speech_Male> under eight hundred, <Speech_Male> seventy, five <SpeakerChange> rush yards. <Speech_Male> Best Bet <Speech_Male> I'd be much <Speech_Male> less than a seventy five <Speech_Male> but Levian bow <Speech_Male> under <Speech_Male> very <Speech_Male> sophisticated point from <Speech_Male> Steve fezzet pregame.com, <Speech_Male> which <Speech_Male> is Levian <Speech_Male> has a unique running <Speech_Male> style. You might <Speech_Male> have upgraded that line <Speech_Male> it's GonNa, <Speech_Male> take awhile that transition <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> especially in a covert <Speech_Male> era. So <Speech_Male> I think bow starts slow <Speech_Male> at minimum <Speech_Male> and then this <Speech_Male> being likely the <Speech_Male> last year he'll be in <Speech_Male> New York <Speech_Male> based upon the buyout <Speech_Male> and all that. <Speech_Male> How much does <Speech_Male> he want to bang his head <Speech_Male> at the end of the year? We <Speech_Male> know he makes <SpeakerChange> business decisions. <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> mean if he has <Speech_Male> eight hundred, seventy, <Speech_Male> five yards I, think <Speech_Male> it's an indicator that <Speech_Male> they don't fully trust Sam <Speech_Male> darnold because they <Speech_Male> running the ball as <Speech_Male> fascinating. <Speech_Male> Certainly an <Speech_Male> indicator they don't try <Speech_Male> darnold is <Speech_Male> the fact they traded away <Speech_Male> their best defensive <Speech_Male> player with <Speech_Male> for play to the future <Speech_Male> when this is <Speech_Male> supposed to be the time <Speech_Male> when you have a <Speech_Male> good code or back <Speech_Male> and we'll put that in quotes. <Speech_Male> A good quarterback on <Speech_Male> a rookie deal <Speech_Male> is when you're supposed <Speech_Male> to be able to win it. <Speech_Male> Okay. Last thing here <Speech_Male> in this is fascinating <Speech_Male> fascinating <Speech_Male> if you <Silence> look at the teams. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> That have entered <Speech_Male> a season <Speech_Male> I. So if we look <Speech_Male> at this, <Speech_Male> they had a losing <Speech_Male> record, the previous <Speech_Male> season. So Savon <Speech_Male> Windsor less, <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> we're going back four <Speech_Male> years now. <Speech_Male> Those teams <Speech_Male> fifty, four <Speech_Male> of them. So the jets fall <Speech_Male> right in the middle <Speech_Male> of that as in they're <Speech_Male> losing team last <Speech_Male> year. And <Speech_Male> the question is <Speech_Male> what does their win <Speech_Male> total dude? Does it <Speech_Male> go up or down <Speech_Male> because they were bad last <Speech_Male> year. <Speech_Male> In, only <Speech_Male> six cases <Speech_Male> including <Speech_Male> the jets did <Speech_Male> the win total go <Speech_Male> down compared <Speech_Male> to the number of wins <Speech_Male> last year. So <Speech_Male> the jets won last <Speech_Male> year seven <Speech_Male> games <Speech_Male> this year they <Speech_Male> have a win total <Speech_Male> of six and a half. <Speech_Male> So they <Speech_Male> have a losing record <Speech_Male> last <Speech_Male> year and a win <Silence> total. <Speech_Male> Less, <Speech_Male> this <Speech_Male> year only <Speech_Male> has happened six <Speech_Male> out of fifty four <Speech_Male> times. <Speech_Male> Why <Speech_Male> it's because <Speech_Male> usually <Speech_Male> almost <Speech_Male> always <Speech_Male> a team <Speech_Male> loses <Speech_Male> the year prior <Speech_Male> is the <Speech_Male> kind of team that got bad <Speech_Male> brakes. Maybe a bunch <Speech_Male> of injuries the <Speech_Male> jets had a lot of injuries. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> It might be something where <Speech_Male> they had a tough schedule <Speech_Male> of turnovers all <Speech_Male> these different things that's <Speech_Male> actually led the league injuries. <Speech_Male> You would think <Speech_Male> they bounce back <Speech_Male> seven games last year <Speech_Male> but somehow <Speech_Male> only <Speech_Male> about ten percent <Speech_Male> teams do they expect <Speech_Male> to regress <Speech_Male> They <Speech_Male> were a losing <Speech_Male> team last year. <Speech_Male> But if you <Speech_Male> look at the list, Joan <Speech_Male> is almost all <Speech_Male> of them were in tank mode <Speech_Male> or first <Speech_Male> year head coach <Speech_Male> you've never had. It's really <Speech_Male> rare to have a <Speech_Male> veteran coach <Speech_Male> and a quarterback <Speech_Male> in place <Speech_Male> and have your win <Speech_Male> total go down after <Speech_Male> losing year. <Speech_Male> This

That's my absolute delight. We started reading. There were three this living in the house at the time myself, my husband Peter and a very good friend of Ours Die Herbert from Wales and The three of us were keen very keen. Tau Bell Ring is very inexperienced. Talbot rings at the State must have been about the early nineteen eighties, one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one thousand. Nine, hundred eighty two, and we heard there was a very friendly practice at Boeing the road in East London, so we told them. To ring with these good Taba arenas competent that they would bring Salami encourages arrested, but Boeing, the road is a very cold tower. It's ground floor rings had code stone flags on the floor. And you'd get quite chilled to the bone wringing their tower bells, so after about twenty minutes, Taco, Bell ringing you adjourn through to the vestry where they were teaching people during humbles with the Fire Niche so we twenty minutes handbells, and then go back and do twenty minutes bells, and they would rotate, so they had half the people being handbells at any one time, and half the people in talks with the tutors in both locations, and we very much enjoy dot, humble ringing, and we realized fairly early on that.

"bell" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell
"And the more I about this and Jonas I want to hear your thoughts. I'm RJ. Bell Straight OUT OF VEGAS WITH JOE stocks. Fascistic to me. Lebron reminds me more of Kareem. The more I think about it. Aka Luau Cinder Steve Familiar. I am Skyhook. The law goes air point in when he was with Milwaukee and cream. I was three years old or whatever so I don't remember it. But they talk about his dominant period and a lot of people remember more the Eighties Kareem and even come seventy nine. Eighty one magic's rookie year. They won the first title. There was a sense of the cream was secondary the because if you look at the Lakers performance the year before magic the year before that they were. I think they missed the playoffs. The other about five hundred so cream by himself wasn't doing magic shows up. They win a title. Okay so doesn't mean cream wasn't good in the eighties man. He was moving through the thirties and into his forties at the end but the fact that he played those years. They made it so his stats. Were the number one scorer of all time but there was never a sense and there's a famous story that magic one. They won the first game average. So it was magic's rookie year. I game and there was a last second shot. Magic hit it. He's running. He's jumping up in the stands. He's backflips maybe not but you know what I'm saying. And he jumps up in arms and cream says we got eighty two. You better relax so in a way. Korean being able to last thirty some years or seems like thirty a lot of years into his thirties and beyond makes those counting stats so amazing. But at what point was he oh my Gosh. I want him to be the he might have been a great. Hey if you're going to play the Aliens Ten different times and twenty years you want cream on the first draft but on any given year cream didn't have many of those years that he was the best plyer but he had a lot of years. He was the five best seven best. Whatever Lebron seems to me to have lost a lot of games in meaning finals. Where the idea that? Mj You might say. Well is a better Joe. Montana's it better not to go the super bowl or to lose the super bowl. Would you rather lose earlier? How can I be better? There is a mystique if someone doesn't ever lose when the chips are really down. There is but you forget about Jordan in this reinforced to me. Every year after he busted through so give him credit it was Larry Bird. It was those pistons but when he busted through every year that he started with the team they won the title. I'd sit there was three years start. Started one started one started. One baseball missed. A season came back with Seventeen Games. Or whatever didn't win now have been coffee one. Yeah but is shows you in a way. If he would've won there would have been an indictment of the league. There was a young shock and a young Pani atop point that we're able to beat them and if you watch the end of this and you saw against Utah especially those two years how good the jazz were on the road or at home. The idea of beaten Malone and Stockton was a win it was not easy to beat them and it was literally one play here or one play there but one guy always made those plays and no one else in the history of the League has ever been that much of a winner once he broke through and Lebron broke through at a certain point and since then he's lost more files in his one. There's a difference there and I gotta be honest. I'm so happy wasn't live wagering back in the late nineties on these aims. How many times that we see? Oh the Bulls are down. Eleven Jordan looks exhausted already. Pippen's not one hundred percent. I'm like Oh they're going to get blown out and then they go back to win outright so Jonas that idea of cream and Lebron which I haven't really heard before. And that accumulates where I think they're inversely related the ability to get so up for every big game that you don't lose means you can't play twenty years like that that you're going to be like a shooting comment in a way and you're going to be there and then take two year or year and a half of them be there again then take three years off and try to come back and finally he was old enough that he was getting be so he played a one year. That was okay. Second year going to do this. Right played eighty two SC over twenty points a game and then he was done and that seems like a different breed player. Yeah no it's a different breed and also your comparison with Emmett Smith. I would I would put to you this way who's had a better career as an NFL. Player Walter Payton or Frank Gore. I mean it's Walter Payton. It's not close and Frank Gore. Might Pass him on the all time rushing list. So that's where we have got to do our diligence to not just look at stats at the end of the day and really put into context. Somebody's impact on the game and nobody comes close to Jordan. If the term impact then it starts getting into well. What was the business ramifications? And you know we're David. Stern was obviously very cognizant. The Jordan was such a key part of the growth of the NBA and the lasting set on the whole dock was there was eighty some countries we were in when he started in two hundred and fifty when we were done or whatever. The numbers were. I think those are generally right. And that's another factor. But I would say this Frank Gore might have had the better career but Walter. Payton was the better player hundred break And I think you could say reasonably and this is the big wind up. You could reasonably say that Lebron had the better career than Michael 'cause you could say okay. Three titles versus six and but now. How much is the regular season successes matter? How much does that thirteen? Fourteen fifteen sixteen. Seventeen year and counting. He'll probably have twenty twenty two years. That can't be nothing it can't be the season doesn't mean anything if you don't win the title but I think that a title is probably worth three or four seasons right and to me. It's a debate if you want to say who had the better career but if you wanted to debate who the better player is. You're insane the one I would just say. Madison Bumgarner Clayton Kershaw. I mean just think about those two careers at some people would argue. Madison Bumgarner had a bad the better career but isn't close to the pitch. Kershaw is because of the world series. And it's funny because with Kershaw those assented. He's the better pitcher but there's a lack of clutch yeah. I don't think anyone thinks I mean everyone. That has a brain things. Jordan was more clutch and Lebron but does any. I'm serious. You couldn't think otherwise. Be Sure to catch live editions of straight out of Vegas weekdays at six PM Eastern three.

I accident Iran into Christening. I didn't realize it was a Christly. I think that's about it really Linda. What what have we covered the mistakes that creeps in I? I made a little Notre Bates as I was walking down to ring for Christmas last year. I fast aged morning after boaty was asleep and there was a little different inside my heart with a smile knowing that any minute now this village was going to be going to be walking by the most holy noise. You're about to create reflecting Joey. Permission to wait till the village. What time did you say that was in half past eight in the morning? Walking down for the seven o'clock service. Nine o'clock service was lists. Basi- diplomat crept in their Linda. I'm going to ask you the final two questions apart from the towers that you regularly ring at which your favorite ring of bells and why wouldn't say with experienced enough to new a gold ring of bells when I hear them all when I'm ringing them I'd I think I can say mass worth out of all the ring. The ring do because of the the atmosphere in the belt in the ringing chamber. I think I can do. Stop Law by experience. It's a very safe happy environment. And you feel encouraged and you feel free to do what he wants to do. Some of the other churches. There's an awful lot more going on and and it's not focused around you and rightly so we are reading purpose and I don't think my own bells my exit bells. They're only three of them. So you limited as to what you can do with them and and we don't bring them closed. So the village could only tolerate so much tweets guide mice repetitively over and over again. We'd like to keep bringing. We like to keep them hoods but we'd like to be a standard where they are listening to so I think it's got to be massless because he is quite a special place very protected. Place to rig right Nuts and. Can you describe Mas with some more? Oh it's it's a beautiful churches six bells and the quite light said very easy to ring. They've been rehome the Tele Cops responsible and his team taking them down taking the most to lift breath on the canal and then bringing them back in them. Having them reinstalled they are a nice easy six to ring. The you also know a confident that they are in good working out which is thought crosses your mind. Sometimes you stood eight hundred swinging blindly. But I think it's been. It's a nice old bridge slice place to go with Little Brown the coroner. It's quite a drive for me but it's an easy drive so I I enjoy the the trout as well as the ratings and what remarkable things have happened to you. That wouldn't have happened if you hadn't taken up our ringing. I'm not sure whether it's a good point. And it's remarkable I realize just how my mental capacities drainings. I'm getting older. It's probably important. I appreciate. It's but it did come as a shock that I could no longer holding commission process quick enough in my own head. Something that I've always been able to do so I think it Absolutely remarkable to me. It's quite useful information to have knowing Lose it so. I think it's given me more encouragement to keep going to get to the standard where I sit when I give it my best. I think the remarkable bit comes from just doing the ringing just knowing that you. I'm doing something that and has been installed in sixteen hundreds and it was home and it was made. It was rolled by all those people before me. I think it's quite an and quite remarkable. Thanks to my guess Clinton Huggy. My next guest is any longstaff. Who's only been bell ringing for a few weeks high any? Hello Good Morning Kathy. Ruining any. What made you think of taking it bell ringing. Well it certainly not based on my bucket list but having too few people who who've got friends who started bell ringing or have been doing it for a long time and I thought that was something I could try. It's always good to start. New Hope is keeping trusting different things and try new skill. So that's why I thought I'd give it a go. What did you thought about blowing before you took it up It's it's a fantastic sound isn't it? I've been singing all my life and a lot of my thing has been involved before beginning churches so do happen an association with churches and cathedrals. And it's wonderful to hear the bells isn't it? How did you find out where to go? Well I thought the best way was to to serve on the net and see what was there and what was about and I came across the association bringing T- Aut as so I emailed them an had very nice cmo back from rose. Ninety Gal who CR have been a straighter and she said that she put me in touch with somebody who lived locally name. May and that's how I got to hear of Allen Bradley Who Rings Ripple Minced. Answering did he lives invert so Which is very close to where I am. And he was very happy to help you. Stop on what was your first impressions. Well he invited me to a rehearsal session just to come and listen just to see the ring in action and yet it was a great privilege to be able to go up to the Tara. Wimborne Minster see the people ringing the bells on to hear them. And yes it. It's one of the the best pills in the country so be told and yes it was wonderful sound and I thought yes agree like to try this further. Did you understand everything that was going on? He did explain it to be very well and there are some very good videos as well on Youtube and on this little bubbles in the the Belfry so that helps to explain how things were much better and He did show me up to the Bell Tower itself where the bells and we went through the different parts of the bell and so that made it clear how. We're going to work and I thought that helped to not you mentioned digital models. What are those this well a little mock-ups of the stock and the bell hanging from it and the wheel and so you can actually see in action by pulling on the little cold you cannot see how the bells Mu within the actual framework. It's it's total mockup of the chill bell. How big was the modal? Oh not very big. I would say probably about ten to twelve inches high about thirty centimeters for metric friends. So then then. What was the next thing that happened? After you seen them in action in Beaumont yes well obviously via to come along to a one to one session which was arranged. Shamir to mutual time which is great that was also wimborne minster and I had to want to one with Allen which was a great way to start to feel under any pressure. Having to to ring with other people watching me. I'm so that was. That was great really and he was very supportive very sympathetic and and very patients so and having a whole hour initially great. So that that that really helped. What's happened since then? I got to the stage where I now being able to to ring by myself and So I was invited along to the tar ring which which is where. I'm going to practice on a regular basis. They may on Wednesday evenings and I got to meet the rest of the team. And so lovely bunch of people very friendly very welcoming and I've last week of only just started to ring with the others so we did one round not quite the right place but it was great to get the feeling of bringing with other people which which is lovely. How does it vary? Then you sort of ringing on your own and then ring with other people. What does now does that feel. Nice well when I first Wrung Amaya with. The bell was muffled so I couldn't even hear the sound to tool so that was to annoy debussy. Simple but now when I go to Ringwood I cannot see here my suffering the bell and yes it's a it's a great feeling and I hope next week to be able to do a little bit more with the Others Brennan. And can you describe the art process learning package now that they do for new boring school learning the ropes? And you get to little log book. And it's it you go through the process the different techniques and and it helps you understand your progress and where it's all going to lead to eventually so it's a very good learning tool on just the initial stages but from we hope to be moving on shortly to the rows and the different types of methods. What steps have you gone through in the art process so far well? It's all about breaking the technique down into into small sections so learning how to to do the backstroke. That's hanging onto the tail. And then doing the ham stroke So we do. That separately is start. Takes one part and then the learning to take part and then you try and put the two together and it's actually building up the technique. What are you looking forward to most? In your bell ringing career I would hope to do the culture ages and things like that so the different methods. I've read that the older you are. It may be a little bit more difficult than if you started young. But I'm going to certainly give it to go and we'll see how he gets on any of the things. Do you think we should talk about? This is certainly because I'm sixty one now and I've just spent the last two years sailing around the world so I've come back a line legs back trying to do the do the things that I've enjoyed that I've missed you know over the gays and I've I think it's always good to to try something new and you know be interested in something totally different parts bit outside the comfort zone. So that's why this ago. What would you say to someone who isn't a bell ringer? Who might just be thinking about it. Well I did meet a lady the other day who was interested him bell ringing but she didn't think it was for her and she was similar agent. I said yes. You know half ago you know you you gonNA get onto lead try and you know people are very welcoming. It was difficult when you go to. A new place is not meet New People and one to how? It's all going to go but it's a lot of fun and I would say you know do give it a go. It's a new challenge. It's great I hope this will encourage people to take up this. I've also been told about tower. Talk which is an online magazine and I would encourage people to to read that I was also told about about throughout so definitely go to the website and this lots and lots of useful information and I think the best thing about it is which I didn't realize was that you can ring anywhere else in the country. Once you you've mastered it you can try the other churches and I think that's fantastic and I sing in a choir and I know that I could just go up to another part of the country and and singing and other costs. That is a fantastic.

Podcast where I cafe booth interview novices. And some of the most famous ringers in the world as they reveal the mysteries of this heard but often hidden on the first of my guest. Today is Linda Huggy who started ringing in February. Two Thousand Seventeen Linda. What made you think of taking it boring. I didn't think of it really until I read our local magazine and the towel cops in whose gentleman I knew but didn't know that he on the end of a rope occasionally and he was advertising for marinas. Sadly I hadn't fisted our battles with silent over the Christmas and that was because it wasn't so he was pushing an address in the local magazine. And eventually I answered it and here I am. What did you thought about bell ringing before you took it up. How do you ever given any thought? I didn't give the actual ringing any whatsoever but I have always loved listening to the balance as a small child going to sleep listening to the the footsteps going Outside my grandma's house the bells calling the footsteps leading with some sleet to honestly. What was your first experience? You saw the advert and then and then. What was the next thing that happened? I contacted our child captain. We knew each other. We both walk dogs and he said that they didn't have regular practices. Exert Matt Sny local church but we all winter long Shopping then athletes a few miles away. And they have a ground set at six bells anti-clockwise six pounds and there. I joined seven or eight people of all different standards and I went there once a week and had a row trust in my hand. I enjoyed eight. I was a long way out of my comfort zone. I didn't have much standing OBITA toll. They did their best with me. They were kind. They gave me nothing loss of China. Because there wasn't GonNa Time. We had an hour and a half practice once a week So there was to learn as in front of me and then be and I was given perhaps about to lots of ten minutes which was enough to wet my appetite and and also in may be appreciated. I needed an awful lot ball. So what happened next then? Sappington where was going. They have silver breaks unless Soon as people to do regular ringing so the Italian Cup today calls break somewhere and I felt so frustrated that there was nothing left for me here I was with a very true dampened appetite. Nothing to do so. I scoured the Internet for somebody to teach me to ring bells. Not Knowing what resources are out there and I found the learning loops which is provided by the Association of ringing teaches and they had a simulator at the church not too far away so I contacted the towel. Cotton there who I think was a little taken aback by my request out glue. Please teach me how. During Bell's it sounds so simple and later on that month. I got a call from him to say he'd also how to request about ten of the ladies who were having new Belgian strong back in that village. But without any ringers. So I was adopted and I've been going to Tomasz Russ weather is simulator once a week so a lot of ladies and lots of ladies. Yes initially they were ten and they are also. They're they're a lot younger than me. And also they have families and dogs and they're scoring boats it raising money to get these panels full circle. How many people did you have teaching? Not many new rings. How did that seem to be a whole team? Abc's wonderfully encouraging people. Initially we made our introductions and there was just a two but three and four and five and six all qualified teachers have been Korean going and doing their sleuth outs. Jearl sorts of reasons have lots of commitments. So there's no quite Is now the ones that are left with quite dedicated? We quite determined that doggedly determined. Very good can you describe the art course for those. That don't know what it was a whole new experience to me. I didn't realize that note into ring. A Bell could structured and I was getting into books and it joining the girl guides. It was quite exciting and we were given a password an entrance into lots of online and help and resources. We have an online facebook page that we also have joined and nat his full. The learn is only closed page so we can ask a lot of very city questions in usually gets very But the learning the ropes game. You should very stupid safe so progression. You feel very supported. You've got lots of different resources. Booklets the people that are teaching you to ring seem to know how to teach as well as ring bells challenged with with me. I think I'm probably one of the older. And they are very kind very tape and there is a loss of health outlet the tickly with having Sydney nature. You can be left to your own devices. Play and learn the hard way which sometimes is a good thing to do. Can you describe the simulator generally means that the rest of the bids is to Noy by our colleagues? The Bells are closed at Man not outside the tower and the noise we hear in the tower in a simulated noise is a. Tux comes from the computer. We also have a Webcam on the bills. So if you've got time you could look at the camera and seeing what the bill that you're reading is doing or not and it means that we can do what we like and make noises relied renouncing owing anybody outside. They are beautiful belt solution to but not always way ringing. What have you found the hardest learning to ring? Oh the hottest is remembering. It's I think it's an aging thing and was client shock. I retired six years ago and always being physically active and enjoyed doing things and enjoy the challenge that being told subside and actually understanding it is fine that remembering it the next time the knee along is very very hard somehow recalling it at the right moment even though I know he exists the instruction somebody will will sound. Instincts are not yet your and you know it's going to be you shouting it too. And then he what they say. And then you says when me. Oh it's a bit like being in a headlight and I don't know why but it certainly never used to happen in my younger days. So I'm assuming it's an agency it's very frustrating. Not only for me. I'm sure the people frustrating as well but to kind to say show. Well what sort of things do they shout at you? What I don't hear how well they have to shout to be heard shocking aggression at all often too slow or I'm clanging alday shouting instructions as to where I should be and sometimes I do know that. Obviously it's not being transferred to where I am in in the bell secrets knowing where I should be and then also knowing where I am too thanks so most of it is helpful instructions shouting which is very kind of been very much appreciated. You know everybody has been so so helpful. They are an amazing band of people in such patients. What have you rung so far? I got my certificate my second grade but I am learning to ring plane. Hunts which I can ring a shopping tower we I was taught to ring following the numbers which act now appreciating the need to know the place you're in. I'm struggling with that. I'm struggling to know my place. I have to cover ringing the tenor. Which is lovely feeling? But I wouldn't say I was very good at it very regular attic very steady i. I could certainly ring rounds. I know what the code changes are but I do is under the master. There is distinct. Got a tweet by bringing transmitting Moham- supposed to do to my hands actually doing it. Generally I do what I should have done so I would still say I'm very much a novice but a willing not miss. What have you enjoyed most about ringing? Oh I think I've enjoyed just the beauty of moving. These Jain Nola spells these huge pieces of metal that are steeped in history and tradition and mateen the making noise. I do think it's an incredible honor to be allowed to be let loose on these instruments and and I think it's it's enjoying. I'm enjoying giving something to the community. We were shot of Bell ringers. I would say I was a valuable member of the team yet. Bbut it's only got so we've now got two new ballerinas so we are going to keep our bells heard which I think is so important so yes. I've enjoyed following in the footsteps of the Great. The but have gone before somebody. Who's listening to this? Who hasn't even thought taking it boring until they listen to this. Podcast what would you say to them? Oh give go. It's addictive exercise. It gets you out gets you into dark corners of buildings that you never knew existed to meeting the most amazing band of people kind thoughtful so experienced. It's lovely listening to their stories anecdotes and learning from them. A lot of people go on ringing trips. It's very social activity or it doesn't have to be pretty it certainly teamwork and it's very very addictive. You've got to learn how to do the next thing. All you've got learn how to do it properly before you can move onto the next thing and I enjoyed that you mentioned ringing trips. What are those? Yes the Calcutta Massless is tireless in his work and organizes a monthly trips with at least three and a and they to around ringing bells. They've never had towns to ring before Some of them are in very strange circumstances. We got into two weeks with battles which would have called Doi Abboud but he was a challenge. It seems to be that. The ring is experienced. Ringers are very supportive of each of the towers so you do find our special occasions. The Carload going around wringing it all the services for the occasions.

"Do you have any stories of the particular towers that you visited? Will every tower tells the story? I suppose into so many now. It's hard to pick out individual stories. But what I love about dubious is and you can see in the Belfry and see all these little pieces of history that no one ever gets to see like the different frame a bell installations and things like appealable hidden up in old ringing chambers and an old old equipment lurking about bits will head stock and things laying about finding oil interesting. Is there anything else that you think? We should have covered that. I haven't osteopaths suppose what we could have done is included. Some of these sounds to come to a company that we've just spoke about. Yes that would be good. Especially that specifically mentioned that's Michael's in Norwich Wealth Caused Laney which is part of norge. You'll be able to listen to brief recordings of ringing from Qasr. Laney and two of contrasting tires at the end of this interview after Christmas answered the final. Two questions though. Yes the big questions. Yes apart from the towers that you regularly ring at which your favorite ring of bells on why that is a tricky on a very interesting question towers regularly ring at a whole variety variety of towers. But this one I ring at occasionally and I do like this sound. But they've I'd do go there sometimes. And that's Chroma on the North Norfolk coast. Used to be six there now eight. But it's just something about tuning the I really like and the in the Bell Chamber is very large and so they have a nice ringing echo. I quite like that and they go nicely as well and the final question is what remarkable things have happened to you. That wouldn't have happened if you hadn't taken at bell ringing. Well I think we've just about covered one of those. I mean this this recording project when I set out to do this are didn't think that I would end up doing like this. I'm going up in all these belfries and things. I thought that was. That was something I would never be able to do. But because of the part of the bell ringing fraternity it's giving me the opportunity to expand and and take this product on earth. And what have you got from that? A very large collection of recordings. How'd you manage them all of course like yourself with this podcast? There is quite editing involved. It's it's a very dedicated task. But one I can do with my experience narrowing filmmaking and sound recording sanity. It's something I can do and I enjoy it now again to listen to some of the able simulator output from some of the recordings of the Norwich that Chris has recorded firstly. The Norwich Caused Laney said Michael's bells the thirty bells.

"I think we'd better move onto the question that I've got for you. Three questions to be the first one is from Andy. Andy says his towers. King Record Bells for the BBC bells on Sunday Program. And he's got a budget of about one hundred fifty two hundred seventy to do that. What equipment should he by an Should he go about doing the recording as a big question is his big question? But it's it's fantastic. Question Bells on Sunday is one of the sort of mice public pieces of a bell. Performance that you can. Actually she think over in my opinion. Yeah it's on public radio every week and I think it's it's a great project I'm under no that they're always looking for good recordings. I'm to use for it as not a complete surplus so if anyone's thinking I would do it but they always seem to have some saying actually no. I'm sure they want to recording for me so to go onto it. It is just an ordinary recording bells. You don't need anything particularly special but I think we need to take into account the points that we mentioned about really finding a space which sounds like your battles the. It's the most critical thing. Where are you going to record the sound? From as we've said within the BELFRY is one option and certainly many recordings rebels on Sunday are done like that but there are also plenty of other opportunities. If you're tyrod has avoid to. That is a sound mixing room either above or below the ringing chamber than that can be a good place to recruit from then town stack cases can sometimes work and sometimes it can work from the body of the Church Even more cases can be on record from outside the church but do be careful. There's not a lot of additional noise in terms of equipment. You need once. You've decided on the recording place. I use a small portable digital recorder in the lines twelve work. It's a product cool to zoom h four and pro and the think there may even be a link to it in the information attached to the podcast that will be yes excellent good so it's a fantastic small recorder if it's in the palm of your hand. The cost is almost exactly that I think you're you can pick pick up for one hundred and sixty pounds knee and great thing about it. Does have built in microphones. So as long as you've got somewhere to put it then you can get a good recording just with us. You don't necessarily need any extra. I think one of the things to remember is bells are little bit unusual in terms of the fact. They're very loud but they don't have a very wide range of variation of volume so we don't setting up to record. Do make sure that the the level so the recording level is appropriate. Because the loud. They don't have much dynamic range. We call it the the loud bits on the soft bits almost the same volume when recording for the twelve bell. We actually have the bells recorded quite quietly but for something. I bells on Sunday. You can really afford to make sure that the level meter. Whatever you'RE USING TO GAUGE. How loud you can put that fairly close to the top end of the spectrum. So what would that be in terms of number of Mind Tina? If people familiar with it we would record a trope. Bocom tested minus twenty four. Db's Which is on those. We might foreign. It's where they level which was about halfway up the display and full recordings that you listen to in other ways I'd go for about minus twelve DB so again zoom cool. That's about three quarters of the way up the display. So if you wanted to do a more involved in station than you can use additional microfinance and the ones that we typically use arrives they are bearing at Xm eighteen hundred s that dynamic microphone. So that means it's Mike that doesn't require any kind of power supply. They're very good. At how Sean say cost effective and you can pick them up for under twenty pounds that very robust and you can eat them hung in the BELFRY and they're very good. If you want to permanent installation the way that would work as you'd hang the microphone and then run the cable to elsewhere where it's more convenient have a sound recorder and the sound recording you're talking about would be one like the one you've just recommended that's what you plug it into. Absolutely yes the one thing about the Z. H. for it's very verse. Tarraco that you can use it either directly for recording sand with its interim like friends or you can plug in next electrifying. Other options are bearing see twos again. Quite cost effective looking eastbound. Forty pounds for a pair that condenser mics. So the need a power supply but they again very good quality and reasonably cost effective. Should probably mentioned this earlier. Bits the Bells on Sunday. We really ought to be looking at stereo recordings for the radio. And say if you're going for external Mike's it's could have to available. And then finally the Mike Friends views for the competition. Bed anemic too. I won T gs so they're quite step. Up their professional microphones but again very robust that the dynamic they don't need a power supply But they have a very very good pickup pattern so the the main variation between all of these various different Mike Friends we've discussed is exactly the shape of the pickup pattern that goes in from them and I've been very satisfied with all of as in bell recording applications. What if somebody doesn't have a budget so jones written and he says he hasn't got any budget is just is smartphone? But he would like to record his the bells in his tower. Maybe put it on twitter all onto the website for his tower. Do you think he could get anything? That would sound reasonable. And if so how would you go about it? I'm Sudi And I think that's it's absolutely great idea. If bells have captured your mansion in some situation than the best thing to do is get something out there. Get something on twitter. Get something out to your friends to say. Do you know what I happened to be passing in. This really captured my imagination This really made me feel happy to hear the sound of bells. I think all of the previous points supply. You've got to find some way where there's no excessive noise the bells of relativity Klay Esa. You can hear what it is the listening full so just because it's on a mobile device doesn't diminish any of the need for a bishop thought into setup and I'd say another thing which can be more prevalent with a mobile fines is of course wind noise outdoors in particular. Try make sure in a relatively shelters bought. Because I'm sure we've all had those phone calls where you can hear the wind whistling past the microphone. An unfortunate that it will be the same if you're recording bells by far and away the easiest way to guess recording the balances just take a video and then like tron. You can take the audio outfit. If you only wanted the audio but actually people quite liken will interact with a more or less static shot of a church with the sound of bells on top of it very lucky at Grayson. Mary's in Cambridge where I rang have clergy team which is very very keen on bells in. They put out quite a lot of bell content on social media some from recruited from outside the West Front of the church. Some of it from our coaches on on top of the roof on the tower and they seemed to get very good in traction with those. If you want to move up a level in terms of complexity than you can get hold of APPs for recording sound and. I'd recommend that if you want. Good sound recording. The problem is videos advocate on Francis. They tend to compress the audio. I yet make it smaller. And your obviously you lose some of the fidelity in that process so a couple of APPs. The of come across voice record prior for iphone and then woodyear recruiter for android. I think we can put things in the Shire nights yet Our reach download have adverts in the most APPs tend to do now a days but they allow you find a level of control over the recording and boatswain will allow you to record effectively on compressed which is really good. You mentioned that there will be adverse. Does that mean that be? Actually somebody talking over the top of your bells while they're being recorded. Luckily it's just all on screen advertising. Okay Maria has emailed us as well and she wants some tips on recording a rehearsal of teams tune. Hand Bell ringing okay. Yeah we'll turn humble great and I think the there are a few challenges recording handbells one of that is it actually has a lot more dynamic range than Tau. Bell ringing the reason for that. Is that the strike. Compared with the Is quite different in terms of sound level. So what I'd say is all of the previous point supply that you can use either professional recording equipment such as they zoom recorder maybe with external mic fans. You can use. You'll you'll mobile device to capture recording. I think again because this is going to be an indoors recording most likely you do need to give a lift Consideration to the environment on the one hand. You don't want to be so close. To the hand bell ringers. The again particular bells become dominant but on the other hand if you're going to be cooling from a reasonable distance away then you need to be quite mindful other reflective surfaces yoku stick reflective surfaces such as hard walls or hardwood floors which again to stop distorting the Sandal producing a natural reverberation it all revolves around a skill which which I liked to describe as critical listening. Just listen with your is as you walk around the room and you start to realize that the sound isn't the same everywhere and try and lock into place in the room where you think the recording is as true to what you think. It is as possible. And then that's going to be a good location to record from right. The other thing I was wondering was with setting at the podcast recording. I've started putting Duve as over things and trying to make it so that there's less reflective surfaces is that something that people could do in their room whether rehearsing the handbells. It's a difficult question. I think that obviously lots of sound absorbing material is a good idea but again it can leave sound just a little dry which is great for infuses. We're doing now. I'm pecan leave musical performances just a little bit lacking that obviously in most cases musical performances art Unin performance spaces concerts holes churches and people want the feeling of that being a bishop space around the performers. And so it's it's not. It's not obvious I think I say you don't want a dead sound behind. No probably not or at least the Nice thing is if you have a dead sound than it's possible to add reverberation using a district's unit after the event which can help and bring the sound life a little bit but obviously on do the reverse if you're in a room which has reverberation in it. You can't take down after the event so in that way. A room with a very dead acoustic makes it very good recording environment because then the producer as it were is in full control after the event whereas if you record in room whereas obvious reverberate coup stakes that said what you've put down on recording is more or less all you've got and there's nothing you can do to to change. It really is see. I've I've seen people practicing change ringing on handbells just in their living rooms so would that would be well for them to think whether there's what the effect of different rooms in the house will be absolutely if they've got a choice. Yeah were they. Which would they choose then? What sort of.

"The one thing about church bells as that they are so loud there there are many different forms of reverberation which are important to the overall sound. Mix when you go outside the church. You'll find that it's not only the sound from within the town and then reverberation within the tower. It's also held. The sounded tracks with local buildings and in particular reflecting off surrounding buildings and trees and other structures is what I feel makes up their overall sound makeup of church tower. It's not just the direct sound. It's it's how the sound bounces around and finally arrives at you as the listener. So I like the small rings so I like the plays could Dordrecht which is in Holland and that really really small bells and I started to learn ring there with my parents but I also like more vote. Because they're small. I also like Martins in the bull ring just because there's so many bells and when you hear them all sixteen ringing and you'll part of it it's feels so nice. Hi You're listening to the fun with bells podcast where I- Kathy Booth Interview Novices. And some of the most famous rings in the world to reveal the mistress of this heard but often hidden art. My guest today is Charlie did. How old are you Charlie? I'm eleven years old. What do you like doing outside of school at Bell Ringing? And sometimes Iran running right. Okay and bell ringing. How long have you been ringing for bringing formerly for about three years three years right and how who told you to ring? I was taught by the Birmingham School of Boring. Does anybody else in your family ring. Yes my Mum Dad. And then I've got from. Angola got five generations. Five generations of ringers. Gracious do you ring with any other children yet? I ring with a Youth Group. Called the branding is the branding is and what the thing is do it. What sorts of things do they ring? Some of the bumbling is starting to do plan hunt on the treble but mainly we do ranco changes. Who runs the branding as my dad does? Have they taken part in any competitions? We've gained the ringing World National Youth Contest on. How did you do the? We didn't come last good. I have the prompting has been on television yet. We went on news. Round for the centenary of the end of the world will want what was that like. It was really cool because you see a new light to all those TV shows you see a different side. What did you see? There are just load and load cameras behind and they do a lot of editing. And what do you like about? The Brown. Dinger's is my favorite about. Branding is is that. It's more based on having fun rather than being a serious bell ringing practice. Small have fun with bowing Being the main focus I see. And how was it made from with quite free with downstairs ring? And so we. When it's not your turn you can just go and play and that's fun. And what do you like? Most about boring by favorite about learning is social aspect how this show many barriers and where all the same thing by also like the fairy scientific what sorts of things learning in the theory side where learning fe place notation and how bells course and the actual methods rather than bringing them. How do you learn? Aretha'd I usually treat the methods as plain hunt with other things added so I learned it that way so I finished up the? Oh what's my next bit and then I go go plant hunting place do the maybe the dodge or the place says and then do the next and it's like that. What's dodge a dodgers where you have one place one like wanting in one place and then you go back to the place you were before you did the first Dang and then you go back and then you can do as many of those you want to look? That looks like like I said and the line. I've heard a blue lines do. Do you look at those. Yeah I g look sometimes. Can you tell me what those are? Blue Lines blue lines so you have a red line and Blue Line. The Red Line is I think she should eat the treble. But it's the original and the new line has things editor at. What's the longest you've ever rung? Four is probably one of my court appeals which are about forty five minutes. Oh so you've Rung. Hoot appeals yes. What was that like kind of gets bored? Because it's what the president is always. The set is the same thing repeated but then when you the feeling of the end when they say when they say that soul and you get to ring rounds then you stop and then that's just really nice having stopped and done it and the achievement. Yes and do you know how many quarter Peals you've rung? I've rung about seven. What was your first one. Like the first one. I was a bit worried for because I didn't know whether I was physically able to do it. So it was even more relieve. -Ment where when we finished and luckily my best friend in her mum had bought. Bacon sandwiches so we got to eat those afterwards and that was good great. What do you think is the hardest thing about bell ringing? Sometimes when I finish and it wasn't that good I feel really guilty as I used at that time was so what else have been practicing their thing but I also sometimes it's a bit hard to explain to people who want his walk. Bell ringing is and I find that a bit frustrating. 'cause I know and they don't do your friends school. Know that you ring bells yet. We ran for the annual school service. May and my friend Sarah who rings school and we both ran for that so most people had the belts as they walked from school to the chat and that people do no have they said anything to you about it. Yeah they are they. Are we do things like that and explaining to them? That's difficult yeah. What would you say to somebody who was eleven or younger? Who was thinking of taking bowel ringing? What would you say to them? I'd say it's a really good thing to do. Because it you have the mental side. Bet which is quite challenging Learning touchily ring a bell and being able to tell people. Oh I can ring a bell and it's really fun because it's so unique and no one else really does it and fun to boast about so. My last two questions are apart from the tower that you normally ring in which town do like ringing in best say I like the small rings so I like the place could Dordrecht which is in Holland and that really really small bells and I started to learn with my parents but I also like more vote. Because that's mom I also like Martins in the bull ring just because there's so many bells and when you hear them all sixteen ringing and you're part of it it feels so nice that sounds great ak and animals Christian. Has Anything happened to you that you don't think would have happened if you hadn't rung bells well firstly doing a podcast but also ringing for the school. Command was nice and being on news round was really cool seeing myself in a proper thing on TV was really cool and also have all those friends that I've made. I wouldn't have made if I hadn't done thanks to Charlie Linford forgiving us. An eleven year olds perspective on ringing bells next. We have a short section way. Your questions are answered by an expert in the world of Bell ringing today. David Richards the technical coordinator for the National Twelve Bell contest for the Taylor. Trophy provides the onces. David Richards is my resident expert today. His work as an audio engineer and has run the technical team for the National Twelve Bell Com tests since two thousand fifteen. Today's the first question I wanted to ask you. Why would anybody want to record bells really interesting question and I think there are really two answers to that? One of those is that you might want to record bells for striking competition for example that's where my involvement with the national twelve bell contestants and that's one type recording another type is more sort of listening for ambience and to remember a particular occasion and that would be more kind of a- bells on Sunday type recording for people to listen to enjoy listening to and I. My view is a quite different styles recording Way while I think if you'll recording for striking competition it's all about a very detailed very analytical very dry if you like you want the precision of what's being produced in the BELFRY and it almost relates back to these sort of nineteen sixties wall of sound argument that my job is to take a recording from a physical point of space and then replayed is exactly as I can to the judges in listening chamber somewhere else whereas if you want to record something to sound nicer natural in light and alive actually you probably don't want the same level of critical detailed. You probably want to bit more of the ambiance. You want a bit more space around the bells. You want to almost feel like you're immersed in the listing environment that you typically hear the bells in I say how do you record it for the twelve? Welcome test so that we'd record the bells fill. The twelve contest is to place a microphone in the Belchamber that that is the room which physically contains the bells often cooled belfry. But just for any avoidance of doubt. It's the physical room with bells. And what we try to do is get the microphone sufficiently high above the bells. You'll not recording any one in particular you can imagine if if the microphone was very low to the bells than you'd pick up one close to more than the others said. We tried to get plenty of height above the battles but more less no interference with with direct sound between the bells and the Mike Friends. So we will. We're aiming for really direct path for sound travel from the bells to recording Mike. Fine as commented the problem with this Result in the same vein very dry. That's because belfries don't tend to have a huge amount of reverberation or at least the direct sound from the bells tends to dominate quite significantly. But what we found is it's a very consistent. Way of recording bell's not very important in a competition setting that we know that more or less any church or to other tower in the country will be able to turn up a news. This tried and tested procedure to get a clear sound which is suitable for judging a competition and you mentioned reverberation. Is that sort of like an echoey type of thing absolutely. I'm the one thing about church bells as that. They all so loud that there there is many different phumzile reverberation which are important to the overall sound banks when you go outside the church. You'll find that it's not only the sound from within the tower and then reverberation within the tower. It's also how the sound tracks with local buildings and in particular reflecting off surrounding buildings and trees and other structures is what I feel makes up. There will sound makeup of church tower. It's not just the direct sounds. It's how the sound bounces around and finally arrives at you as the listener Say It's interesting to the these are things you you don't as a layperson think about but it's interesting to stop maybe being aware them absolutely and I don't know whether you have to balance the amount of time in training it takes to become a good recording engineer but there are specialist courses run by universities in how to record sound and this is very much key part of it. It's really considering. What the sound sources but also considering how people would normally listen to it. And you're making sure the sound recorded sounds more or less as people expect. University of Surrey. Bones are very famous. Tom Mice to cool with this is the main focus. It's all about. How would you take sound being produced usually Life Circumstance? Oh concerts and performances. How do you turn that into a recording? Which is truthful and sounds like the original to a listener..
