US entering 'different' phase of coronavirus outbreak
"Surpassed Britain as the country with the third highest Corona virus death toll on Friday. What happened across the United States we bring in Santonio, first news national correspondent Michael Bauer. So what did happen in the United States? We know that Dr Deborah Berke, the position overseeing the White House coronavirus response says. We entered a new phase here in this country, meaning that what we're looking at as Faras the pandemic goes is much different now than it was in March in April. That she says, is extraordinarily widespread that there because it was his belief that rural urban areas maybe someplace states and cities. Work socially distant enough from the rest of the country. This remote distance is going to keep us safe, not going to be an issue, she says. That's not happening anymore. We're in a place now where there is no corner of the country. That's safe enough from everything. So while we've been looking at Texas and Florida in Arizona and California for some time now, the Sunbelt states you're looking at over the past week period of time, the largest surge of infections happening in Alaska, Hawaii, Missouri, Montana and Oklahoma. So sort of all over the place. Some of those places way more distant from the rest of the country than others. And this is a clear indication that we're in a different level in a different phase right now, what's happening in this country. Now with that? Experts are also saying, Let's not forget we're about to possibly go back to school. We know that some colleges are going to be returning, and there's a concern that we major outbreaks in college towns, but also above and beyond that policy lab is this one group of Children's Hospital in Philadelphia that have been kind of showing models and pulling together models. They're looking at one right now that says As far as a likely spread over the next four weeks. Like who could be the next Texas who could be the next Florida? They're checking out some ominous trends that includes some really, really big cities like Baltimore in Chicago in Detroit, Philadelphia, ST Louis and Washington, Boston and New York. They're saying that they're keeping a close eye on those cities over the next four weeks because it looks like Some of these cases, air headed back those directions. Michael, are we getting a clear picture of exactly how many kids have tested positive for covert 19? It's what we're getting is because a lot of schools still haven't officially returned right. But we do know that some schools have gone back into session. And we know that at least in places like Indiana at one school district, where two kids tested positive and a teacher tested positive as well. They immediately day one shut down those squids at school district and went back to the At home learning process and doing things from a remote basis, and you're seeing those exact came some kind of situations all across the country. You're seeing them in Kentucky, you're seeing them and Utah. You're seeing them. Ah, hole across the country where kids are kind of starting to come back and then boom. There's this sort of exposure to on element of covert 19 in the classroom. My brother Isa teacher in Northern California he teaches high school students, and they just had two of their senior students test positive for covert 19 1 senior at another school in their district. And the school just for decided to shut things down until October. So my brother will be teaching from his classroom, But just on the computer to people who will be learning at home. So are we working on the honor system here? Our parents required by law to report if their child test positive. Uh, that's a great question. I don't know that they're required. I also don't know who's hiding that right now. I'm thinking that that's a good idea. I think you know the reality of the situation is school districts are asking and trying to figure out what it is that parents want to do and what the schools want to do from that point on there making decisions based upon that, But the minute you start talking about bringing a kid in who might be infected. And even though the symptoms aren't nearly as strong and kids or at least that's what the reports have been throughout what you've seen for adults and older people, they can still spread it, so they're still going to school. They can still pick it up and bring it home. And then they can spread it that way. So if you were looking to stop the spread period, it would seem likely the things they do. There is not put kids into a situation where it was worse back in March, but worse than where was back in March and trying to put them in and think that this is going to stop the spread. Meanwhile,

Thank you so much for joining us today. We have a really exciting gaspar someone were so excited to chat with We'd love talking to other podcasters you know that we've mentioned that so many times, but it's so interesting to talk to people are going through a lot of the same experiences that we are. We know many of you listeners are thinking about podcasting as well. So it's Danny and Tony from the mouse park insider podcast. Really really wonderful show they have going on over there and they've kind of exploded onto the scene. I don't know if you'll say that, but I'll say that on your behalf guys, thank you so much for joining us for. So excited to chat with you today. So first things first, if you could introduce yourselves if you have one share one rain in fact that we may not know about you from social media. Okay. Well, my name's Tony and I think that. A good fact about me that I want you guys to know is that. I don't really know I. Guess. I'm a huge sports fan. That's something that nobody knows about me. Nobody knows that about me I'm a big dodger fan and. chargers fan in a Penn State football fan. So go penn state we are. Yes. Penn state and your family. I do my dad. Went there. Awesome I. Went there I love Penn, state. So I got. Tony. So, my name is Danny. Thank you so much for having us on. Fact about me I guess I'm a type one diabetic. That's not known in our social media presence. So I am an insulin dependent, diabetic I walk around with a glucose sensor on my arm and my pancreas on my hip in the form of an insulin pumps out, he ever seen in the parks with weird things. Weird machines keeping me alive. That's why. Her fact is way cooler than mine now. Well, those are both so interesting I. Tony, congrats on Mookie. Betts. Will say mookie Betts from Nashville where we're from I played against him many times. He hit a mini home runs against my team. So enjoy those home runs dodger stadium. That's awesome. Yeah. He just signed a huge contract. I'm really excited for that. My claim to fame for a while I. Don't think it's. It's true anymore. But for a while, mookie followed me on. INSTAGRAM. So I. Will in in Danny I do think that is very interesting because that we've been exposed a little bit that there's like a big community of people who have dietary restrictions or or the special things that they have to do in the parks. The first thing that comes to mind is all gluten free people who have to find things that in the parks so. I, Dunno I. Bet you'll have somebody reach out to you in a similar situation in Y'all can think about how you can enjoy Disney to the best that you can have somebody else. That is going through similar experience. Yeah. Absolutely. Definitely, Disney snacks are worth all the extra insulin injections I take. So I. Guess we want to start off, of course, by hearing about both of your Disney stories. You Know How did you love for Disney Start and then how has it kind of evolved over time? I, will start I grew up in Los Angeles and I kinda just went to Disneyland probably like annually, maybe twice a year with my family. So it wasn't like we were going all the time. We lived probably about a half hour away. But I was always really obsessed with all the Disney movies and I used to go around my house seen in all the little mermaid songs. I would be in our backyard and the pool pretending a mermaid. So I always just fell that big connection to Disney. And then growing up. Once I got into high school. I bought my first annual pass may started going more frequently, and then by the time, I, was in college I was going every week if not more. So it it kind of just kept growing and growing for me. and. So for me, I pretty much grew up going to the parks. I live maybe about twenty, five, thirty minutes away from Disneyland, and my family was always very huge on Disney We would go probably just about every weekend and So for me, definitely I more of like a parks person growing up and Danny was more of the movie person growing. Growing up and I think that reflects in who we are now too. He's definitely more parks. I'm more movie. If you had to pick one or the other, you can't get rid of the Disney movies for me. I will admit though I did love the movie newsies growing up, I would donna and I would dance and sing as like a little kid. When around and then finally, like that was like my first big moment where like apparent walks in your door and you turn around and you scream get here. The newsies. Solidified now that when this up so drops, we're going to have to get some sort of instagram story or video proving that you still know the choreography newsies. Absolutely, I'm so down for that. But. I think those are both stories that so many people can relate to. I mean, especially anyone who says that they've never pretended to be a mermaid in school year lying. Typing. Very close to our hearts to Brennan, would you say you're more of a movies are park person? Park..
Breaking Down Beyonce's 'Black is King'
"In my life is talking about this. Beyonce's film that dropped on Disney Plus and so yesterday, Okay, I need to watch this. I must watch it. It's very similar to lemonade. It's a visual album, and I didn't realize this and I probably should have connected the dots before, but she was so inspired by being in line King. That there's lying King in Black is king. So you hear Simba like Morphosis talking in the beginning, and I'm like, Why is move faster here and then Nala And then later on, she's talking about the Matanza. And there's Timonen Put Mamba and so first that was like, Oh, okay, I get it. Now I get why it's wanted us to be plus so going into it. Had you done much reading on it, or you kind of just went in and then maybe checked on some stuff afterward. Sounds like Yeah, I checked on stuff afterward. That's generally what I like to do just to kind of make sure you know, kind of get a Clean slate while I'm watching it going, okay? This is how I feel about it versus you know, being tainted by somehow lately I'm the same way use. Yeah. The only thing that I heard before my brother had watched it before me, and he just said you must watch it. And so there you go. That's all I heard. But so compared tto lemonade. What was the experience like? It was similar in the sense that there are a lot of Visually. It's stunning, absolutely gorgeous. I mean, you just think about just her accessories and fashion how many racks they needed Because every scene she had a few different outfits that she wore huge outfits of tulle and Metallic puffy sleeves and lace. And just just imagining that alone is Lau and then I also wonder if her mom designs a lot of her clothing. How involved Tina? Her mom, you know was in the process, so just that alone. Stunning and the story itself. She kind of expands on the Lion King story. But there there were a couple moments now, First of all, Let me just say this, too. I love Beyonce. So I'm looking at it through those colored that vision, you know, because I know that she is gets a lot of pushback for you know, trying to be too perfect and I do feel like it must be exhausting to be Beyonce because she she always looks amazing. She always looks amazing. You know, that's what we expect from her. We expect it to be like just perfect pristine and she did deliver that. You know, so At the same time, you know, I do see that At one point, I was watching it on hills like, Oh, there she goes again, You know, like she's looking absolutely gorgeous. And you know, it's really Beyonce focused, and it really starts that way so she isn't and it's available. On Disney, so you can watch me. Plus? Yes. Yep. You can watch the whole thing. It's It's almost two hours. I want to say, Oh, wow. It's Yeah. Oh, Is there an album that you can video like, 10 minutes? Oh, no, no, it's a whole film. No, it's like a whole movie experience. Yep. Come and they're in with. There's a short song that she does with her husband be Jay Z. Forell is in it at one point to the one of the songs that kind kind of teared up a little because it felt so empowering. She's like a mood and it just Her daughters are in it as well and and her son, her kids, You can see them, Shell says. A song with Naomi Campbell and Lupita and Young Go and Kelly Rowland, and they're looking at each other. Just like you're so beautiful and, you know, felt like good sisterhood. And they all telling Beyonce she looks beautiful or each other. They're telling each other Okay. Build a little awkward to be like. Oh, well, I would like you to tell me how beautiful I am. You do feel that sense, though, because even when they're doing like group dances They're the dancers are all in one color. And then Beyonce's in a different shade of the same color or something completely different. Like a contrast as if that's what you're looking at. Yeah, you're just looking at Beyonce dancing, you know, so I mean, and the hair extensions alone. I can't even imagine there's one where she's on like a Uh, you know what the painters like some scaffolding and The hair is just Like two stories. It's super long
More St. Louis Cardinals test positive for COVID-19; weekend series postponed
"Thing out of this that I can report, thankfully, is that you know the people that You know, tested positive for Had pending tests that we'd still like to get more conclusive results on everyone is asymptomatic. That is Cardinalsmanager Mike Shilts, trying to put some positive news on what has been a very difficult time for the team over this past weekend. Four positive Corona virus tests three. Our players, one is a staff member and for inconclusive tests that the Cardinals hope tohave official results By this morning, three of those staff members and one of those a player here's more from Shilts. So You know, the good news is Like I said, You know, there's people here that Are having any symptoms feel normal. You clearly have been exposed to the bars. How did this begin? Contact tracing is helping. I think we have, you know, a sense of how this may have begun. Cardinals President of baseball operations John Mose, a lock. You know, it's not. It's not something that I condemn us publicly in the sense of I don't want anybody to just get destroyed over you were the person on I just don't think that's very helpful. But contract tracing is Essential if you're trying to understand how to contain. Meanwhile, the team supports each other Right now. We're really mostly concerned about our players and making sure we continue to Contain what it is and do everything we can possibly to test him to take care of each other support each other from a distance. And, you know, continue to pray that the people that have it are are asymptomatic and weaken. They can move forward. We can move forward eventually get back to playing baseball. We will continue to bring you updates as they become available. The Cardinals remain self isolated in their hotel in Milwaukee. They were to travel to Detroit today. That game has been postponed Tuesday through Thursday. At the moment, the plan is to play four games over those three days, all in Detroit with a doubleheader on Wednesday, and the Cardinals appearing as the home team. For two of those games.

A new hotline helps gamers with harassment and bullying
"Games have become a huge release for lots of people. Especially, the many who are entering their six month of some sort of corona virus lockdown in June sales. Video Games were up twenty six percent from a year ago. But online harassment has been a problem in gaming for years and in June dozens of women accused streamers, people who broadcast their gaming on twitter youtube of sexual harassment, abuse or assault. Now time video game activist is launching a hotline for people who play Games, or work in the games industry to get support, Anita? Sarkisian is executive, Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency I. think that's streaming is a new medium and that while it's the same old abuses of power, it might look a little bit different or it might play out a little bit differently. If this isn't a workplace issue, you don't have an hr to go to if you even trust your hr right like a lot of people don't rightfully. So and so what does it mean for a community to rally and to reckon with abuses that are happening how? How do we hold people accountable in a space that doesn't really have mechanisms for it, and I think those are some of the questions that were starting to ask and understand like is it that we just kicked people out of our communities? When enough? When when someone, who's brave enough to come forward tells her story of abuse. How do we put survivors victims I when we're talking about like, what does it mean to create safe communities and spaces? Is there also an aspect of that? That says, Hey, company, you need to be responsible for some of this as well and bringing them. You know what should have already been irrefutable data but view. Yes. This is this is that tension of we know that you've known that this has been going on, where have you been So we need to move out of this sort of reactionary space and into really reckoning with from the ground up, how are we building our workplaces in our communities to deal with the fact that these abuses can happen and to really center victims in that? Right. How do we deal with it so that we can try and minimize these issues from happening at all. Let's talk for a minute about the other side of the equation, talk to me about the unique issues that come up for people who make video games 'cause. I. Think maybe not everyone is familiar with how tough that industry can be in the games industry. We have really cute little word to describe overworking. And it's called crunch, and this is something that I think we see in tech in general. But specifically in Games, I don't think there's a separation between the issues around crunch and burn out and what we're talking about in regards to abuse because they come from the same root of not really trusting or caring for the humanity of your workers. We see that so much Especially, the really big game studios. Do you see you've been at this for a long time and I admire your strength because? Man Do you get beat up on the Internet? And probably in real life too. and I wonder do you see improvement? Do think things are getting any better? You think they'd have a canned response to its. At this point because I get asked a lot and the answer is complicated and I think that anyone who answers that in a way that isn't complicated isn't seeing the full picture. Right. There is something to just acknowledge here when you've been in these spaces, right at any activists that's been doing work for a long time is tired and it's a lot harder to give to be hopeful and to be optimistic and to see the bright side of things. So I just want to preface acknowledge that like we we all kind of need a rest it to be honest. and. It affects how we talk about and look at change. So. All of that is to say in some ways. Yes, and in some ways, no feminist frequency has been collecting data for the last five years and the the major game studios that announce games every year at e three, which is our biggest biggest gaming events. Now, that didn't happen this year, but they're still these announcements and what we found when we collected the data of the gender identity of the playable characters games is that over the last five years. We have seen almost no change. The lowest point was three percent and the highest point was nine percent and female characters as protagonists like that's five years of time that there's not much change there. Now, there's other change in the data, right? That shows that games that have a gender binary option that have character choice where it's an array of characters you can choose from that's increasing, but we're not seeing a statistical increase in the amount of female characters were seeing as protagonist. Another data point is that yeah, we're not seeing quite as. As much agree just sexism. It doesn't mean it doesn't still exist and it doesn't mean there's still a lot of work that needs to be done but I think we are seeing some shifts in the industry, and that brings us to what's next. Right. We need to be talking about the stories that are being told, the ways that mechanics are being designed, who's getting hired, who gets to tell those stories. There's still a lot a lot of work that needs needs to be done as we're moving towards creating a more inclusive games industry. Anita Sarkisian is the Executive Director of the nonprofit media site feminist frequency. The Games, and online harassment hotline is launching today. We'll have a link to it at marketplace tech dot.

One thing in Madison is that we like to study things and then we like to get answers and then we like to operate based on those answers and so that's been I think one of the more challenging pieces of it is just the sheer you know constantly saying, I.

What are you talking about Garros? Haven't? You heard heard what? Well, for the past few decades, a lot of our recycling things like paper and plastic and glass has actually been shipped off to China to get recycled. Except over the past year, China has told the world that it can't take all of our junk anymore. Why not? Well, we humans have generated too much of it and recycling all of that crash has become too difficult for China. So, what does that mean for how we recycle our garbage? Well, it means that in many cities in America and even in other countries they stopped recycling. Just stopped, recycling like Dennis. Mandy. I didn't stop recycling I never started gay Roz, if they're not recycling than what's happening with all that cardboard and plastic, well, a lot of it is being incinerated or burned.

I wrote that down I was like, how did you come up with this amazing cookie recipe? because. That's definitely something I'm I'm going to have to look into here very soon, but that you had like a love for baking as well. I get. Even, as a kid I've always loved baking I've always just loved being in the kitchen. So it kind of came natural. I just figured I could bake something I love to Bake I love cookies. Kind of you know was was easy solution for me We've expanded our product offerings now to wow, we offer brownies, we offer herbal supplements for those that don't want to eat cookies brownies. Day We offer beverage mixes, eliminates tons of stuff but what's most important is our network of breastfeeding support that is really the backbone of our company. We provide dictation consultations both virtual and in percent one for not in the middle of a pandemic. We also provide flange consultations, lot of pumping MOMS have no idea what slam site is to use in really impact up production. We have an amazing support group were very active on social media. With our social media, using our social media feeds to educate and empower about breastfeeding as well. So it's really more than a treat company. It's really told little sisterhood I like to call it of breastfeeding in pumping. Mama's just supporting each other. Yeah. Yeah. For sure. I know I was checking now. All of your guys is Info and although you do have amazing products is the support. It is the being able to. Find a consultants or even hop on the phone with somebody who can help you through your journey and know that. I mean, we're going dive into some of the myths that breastfeeding isn't always easy for everyone and it doesn't always come naturally and I. Love that you guys talk about that. So I'd love to dive into some of those myths and I know one of them is that. Your baby latch on and it should be easy and it should be natural. That's a very common myth and I experienced the same thing you know you look at, maybe you might see a mom, which is a whole other issue that it's very rare that you'll see on breastfeeding in a magazine because breastfeeding unfortunately is still not completely normalized, but we're getting there. Right. So let's say you see an advertisement of a mom breastfeeding nine times out of ten. She's smiling and like this is the greatest thing ever, and this is fantastic in it so easy and so when I saw those as a pregnant mom, I was like Oh like you just latched the baby, the baby's good to go. But my experience wasn't Mike that my first latch was painful My baby didn't have a deep latch and no one told me otherwise like everyone said Oh. It's okay. It gets better your Nipples, oh bleed, but they'll get better. And no one told me that that's not okay. My Nipple, should it be falling off and I'm trying to latch I? Think that it's really important to have and to set realistic expectations for parents so that they know, hey, it's normal to be sentenced to test some tenderness and soreness. It's normal to be a little sore and latching although it's natural breastfeeding is considered natural. It's still a skill that. That you and your baby needs to learn. So don't expect things to just happen. Perfectly, you know seek help is nothing wrong with seeking help There's nothing wrong with with checking in with the lactation consultant before leaving the hospital I, think that's really important. Make sure you get checked before leave muscle so that you can explain okay before you get home. Yeah. For sure. Will I feel like though? I've heard. Be Opposite I've heard. It shouldn't be painful at all. It should be easy and. Basically. If there is any pain than your baby's not latched right or there's a problem, but I know that they're still gonNA probably be some soreness either way. You know and I always use this analogy, and I apologize because I'm like the Queen of terrible analogies. But I just think things that are inappropriate. But this is the only way that my brain thinks about it like or you had a baby, I can guarantee that there wasn't another human sucking on your breasts. Every two hours if that was your life before I'm jealous but. That wasn't the case. So it's very normal with the simulation that you're gonNA have some tenderness and soreness, and it's very also really important to distinguish between soreness and tenderness and pain that toe curling teeth grinding painting that a lot of US associate with with latching. That's very different sort tenderness that goes away after the latches established and babies. Drinking's is normal pain that lasts the duration of the nursing action is not normal
How Coco Illustrator Ana Ramrez Gonzlez Extends Herself with Her Art
"I if I opened up one of your notebooks from Grade School and high school, how much doodling what I find in the margins You know not that much. I didn't use to draw growing up because I was a figure ice skater in ice skated competitively since I was six up until I was like fifteen or something. Then my mom was like when you take drying class I'm so happy that she did in so glad that they would even suggest art school for me in high school actually she kinda almost forced me to take drawing class or against my will almost but she was just tried out if you don't like it, you don't have to go back you know but please give it a try like I. Think you might like it. In. So she drove me to like my first drawing class in. But then I like looked it like after the first session as this is rules is the best like this is what I wanna do for. I didn't actually start drawing until I was maybe seventeen or sixteen, seventeen or something. When did you first decide to move to the states? So my mom has a cousin who lives. In Chicago who you know she was like, Hey, like can she go live with you? Here. So my aunt was in angel and she took me in for a year in lived in Chicago, and you know that exposed me to a lot like it was kind of a huge cultural clash for me because I grew up. You know kind of sheltered in you know in my small community in new everybody there and it was just for a year but it I think it really shaped. My view. On things in. My world in. So after that I went back to Mexico and then I found you know started doing research once I started taking drawing classes in my my sister's best friend from childhood who's also my friend his name alone. So he was studying at CAL arts at the time in La in. California. So I met up with alone. So that summer. And it was the summer before I graduated high school and he showed me his portfolio that he applied with in I just like I was like I have to do this in like. This college I was like I have to go to the school in an a very stubborn person in sort of obsessive sometimes when it comes to like things that are really WanNa to do and I applied that year but I didn't get in. So then I moved to France in when there for like two years. In. It really helped me to start building my portfolio for Callard's because in my mom in my dad's head, I was just going to stay in France in I was going to graduate there but I, was still like no have to go to cal arts 'cause that's my dream. My Dad was really worried when I applied to the school again because I think they also didn't really think that I would get when I re applied. Again, after two years of the first time I got rejected I did get in and I had such a good time and it was magical. So I mostly decided to move to the US because I just really wanted to go to the school in that was like the main reason in the drive for me to come here in because I loved animation and Film Industries here. But Oh, my family's still in Mexico is just me here. How did you land that first job after school? My first job. So it was actually during school because at Keller, it's A day per full day in its day in Wedge. A lot of people from the industry from the animation industry, go to the school look at our work. So there's like tables laid out in the main gallery in like students from first to fourth year plus like after you graduate, there's also space for them. We learned stressful. I knew so stressful it's Yeah. It's very like nerve wracking in like really exciting to because everyone's working towards that so. That year my mom was visiting 'cause she. She came up to visit me in and she was staying with me in I stayed up like I pulled an all nighter she stayed up with me the day before printing stuff out in laying out my portfolio decorating it. So we laid them out on these tables. In this was my third year and I went in the morning you lay them out at like a eight. Am you leave them there in the new leaf like you're not even present to show your work like you disappear, and then there's like this blackboard at the end of the hallway with you know the lists of every studio that's attending and you know like three hours later they write the names of the people they WanNa talk to. Based on like what they think about that work, I had never been called by Pixar or anything like I was not targeting Pixar at all because I'm like how like you know it just was not in my raider 'cause they were incredible. So as like whatever I just want an internship anywhere. Or A job. I went back to my house with my mom and we both kind of fell asleep for that time because we were so tired and then I got a call from a roommate who was at school and she was like, Oh, my God on a you have to get here right away like come here. Your name is under the picks list in I was like what no way I. Remember like jumping around with my mom. In we went to the school in like indeed, my name was on the list in the talk to Harley Jessup who production designed cocoa. And he was doing the interviews like himself site talked to him and he was like Oh I love your portfolio like it seems like you really love drying from like different cultures and you know I love how you're like units. So Colorful Blah Blah Blah in his guest, send us your portfolio and we'll get back to you and actually my mom took a photo of that list of the portfolio list. And she sent it to me every once in awhile and she's like remember We're like my name It's very sweet. Yeah. But then eventually they got back to me and they called and I was I happened to be touring Disney imagineering that day 'cause I was elected with a group of other students to go pitch stuff to imagine years, which was super cool and I was on that tour with my friends and then that day I found out they called me in there. Yeah. You would just want to let you know you got the internship end. I graduated college I didn't have a job I applied to like fifteen jobs or so and didn't get any of them until eventually I got one in I worked there for a little bit but then they weren't. Willing to sponsor me because I know it's not easy for everybody. So I left because I'm like. Well, what am I doing here? You know it's not for the money as much as like I also really need. To get sponsored so I can stay in the country. So I left and then I kept applying to jobs in the landed a job with Google doodles with Google in started freelancing for them and doing you know Google doodles rely Mexican Independence Day and then we were like in Having starting a conversation of potentially converting me to like full-time in stuff in has very excited about that.
Trump wants to ban Tik Tok
"Actually let's talk a little bit about Tick Tock today I performed this morning. An Act of rebellion. I downloaded installation talk on my iphone because who knows how much longer I'll be able to do it it's very confusing I don't know what's going on. Tick Tock, which is owned by the Chinese company Bite Dance Safest that committee. Or foreign investment in the United. States apparently is investigating I. Think they actually issued a ruling saying that like, wow away tick tock was a threat to the United States One of the ways tiktok became really big as by acquiring a couple years ago musically, which is really I think from what I see on. tiktok kind of the backbone of what Tick Tock is these days, which is lip synching or acting or dancing to an original track It's it's very entertaining. It's a it's probably the most engaging social network out there. But apparently, it's a threat to our way of life. On Friday the president on Air Force One. said that he was about to ban it as soon as yesterday. From the United States I'm not sure under what law safest can do it I think. But I don't know if the president can by executive order banning application. then for the last week Microsoft Been. Negotiating to buy the American rights to talk to kind of create a tick tick Tock America that would be separate from the Chinese bite. Dance. TIKTOK. But then the president says I'M GONNA ban it but I don't want anybody to buy it. So, micro-. Microsoft said. Threw their hands off and said figure it out and there. They didn't end the conversation with bite dance. Apparently, they were fairly close but they're not forwarding it until they find out what happens I'm GonNa make a prediction. Nothing is going to happen except now people are going to download and use TIKTOK. Brianna is tick tock a threat to national security. It's not a unique threat to national security. We need to have a conversation about the kinds of information social media APPS are able to download from our phones. We all remember the scandals of facebook on android downloading your tire phone list gang everyone you've ever called. We need to have a conversation about that, but there's there's really no evidence that what Tiktok is pulling is any greater than what you know facebook instagram these other social media sites are. Pulling so far. So we need a wider discussion about that. How's it just want to say I wish I could tell you this was just trump in the Republicans that would make me very happy. My heart broke today to see Chuck Schumer on the Sunday morning shows advocating the same thing tech talk. So you know it's it is we need to have a conversation about national security and the amount of information were giving up but it's I think. To just focus on TIKTOK. Sign of. Phobia. Or Zena Phobia Paris, you seem like a Tiktok user. I that's only because you're younger than. I. Did recently re downloaded when this whole. Wanted to make sure that I had it. I'm sure is a common response. I agree with everything the Brown said in the sense that I don't know I've been particularly disturbed by. The reactions to take talks, data collection both from the left and right and just. Experts in the tech field generally over the past couple of months because it is definitely coming from a place of seeing phobia. I mean, we have so many different. American. Made APPS that. Do many of the same things I mean one thing that I've seen noted quite often as to talk has the ability to see what you've. You know copied near Clipboard when guests so do most of the apps you have on your phone. Is Operatives. It's not a tiktok specific problem. This came up because of Iowa's fourteen, which is in public Beta now so people are suddenly using it and dozens of applications. I. Think must be a library that they all subscribe to infect somebody a couple of weeks ago. Somebody told me that it was. Ad Library I use of what a clearly noninvasive program from panic software Call Code editor, which lets me log into my Server. with SSh and and edit files and things like that and it was. I got the same thing that you get on Iowa's fourteen O, coders looking clipboard every time I typed to character. Now I don't think coded only panic software famous for an FTP program and this H. Program is at spying on me obviously, they're not. they're using the same code library. So it's a, it's a, it's a bug. That's what Lincoln Microsoft's linked in said as well. So. I think it's also just one of those things where if you're building an APP especially in. The Tom I. Don't know there was a time when absence of for being built were there wasn't this conversation about security and privacy. Why would map designers not take the position of? Yeah. All the things maybe we'll need that information talk said quite credibly. We're just looking to see if you put a url on your clipboard so we can pasted in. That seems credible I. Don't know if you need to do it every single time I type of character that seems like more that book I can tell you firsthand from developing an Iowa it's often easiest just to get it submitted to the APP store to take a bunch of permissions and It's just it's like you're trying to debugging in. Store, to accept it is just quirky. I can't tell you how many times I in other APP developers have. Just it's a very, very quirky system. So I, think this is just in Beta. I think it's really important to point out as far as the impetus for this I personally do not think it's a coincidence that tiktok was widely credited for disrupting trump's Tulsa rally a couple of weeks ago and Sarah Cooper is so famous for she's making five star she's she's amazing and those videos are brutal to trump and I I don't. That's a coincidence. She does trump limps licks lip sync. And I was talking to a friend said you know is the trump on TV I can't understand what he's saying but then I watched Cooper and that makes sense Sarah ads expressions and Gestures and all kinds of makes sense all of us and so I don't think the president should be so quick to to not like Sarah purchase he's adding context Might have something to do with it certainly in his mind because we know. You know. I don't know what he's going to do to Cape Pop stands because they were the other the other group that apparently figured out that you could register took on trump's team has got to be wise enough to know you can't take on the capons stands. Being. The capon stands the United States would crumble. Yes. That would be it would be over right. You just can't win against the K pop stands So. They were both advocating people sign up for the Tulsa Rally and not not show and Honestly the fault lies with Brad Par Scout trump's former campaign manager and his campaign team for believing all those registrations and building a giant outdoor stage. Giant parking lot so that the millions of people who are going to be coming because they all registered would have somewhere to be, and then I loved. Well, I shouldn't say that that sounds partisan was interesting to see the one person with the baby stroller in that giant area and the rest of the arena half full or third full So I could see why he might be a little angry about that. Is there. No, Matt. And I'm not putting you in the position of speaking for the government I want to say that in fact, we should have said that. That Nazi for the. Federal government but you also having worked Akiko Google you understand how you know a little bit about how this stuff works the the there's not any proof that while way for instance, has ever done anything. Particularly Evil they've done some commercial espionage apparently, but nothing could particularly evil but there's the potential if they run the entire five G. Network that at some point, they could inject malicious software to the network or shut it down. Is What could Even even sounds stupid asking it. What could take time do? It's the forbidden APP. If you think about it if you don't have it on your phone, it could disappear at any time. No I think it's it's less about that although you do see companies like Amazon saying, Hey, on your work phone or work device please don't install. And they did it. Because they realize Oh we do business with these guys. Let's not this them off but wells Fargo did that I think the Department of Defense I don't know about you sds, but it's reasonable if you've got a company phone. Probably shouldn't have facebook or instagram on it either you right? Yeah. I keep my twitter and all that stuff very far away from work phone. It's my it's my personal account, but you know it's I can understand why people want to have just a a sense of okay. Let's be careful. Let's see what's going on and then You know just making sure that you can depend on the. Tools all the way down reflections on trusting trust. You can put things into a compiler, which then you can remove it from the source code and turns out that thing can stay in the compiler for years and years and years. So you know you don't WanNa be load bearing on any particular technology that you can't quite vouch for his guesses what people are thinking, what would be the legal? How could a president ban an APP in the United States I was thinking about this in the one thing the United States government is very effective at is We we we went after Isis in I sell at a very effective way instead of this Ip address to a recruitment site you can't access it. So my my guess would be the executive order would basically grafter the ISP's and say you can't go to this particular ISP but think about that I know of VPN products is sponsor show sponsored mind and to know how few seconds would take the average teenager together VPN account to just keep their tiktok going. Yesterday I downloaded the tiktok cap the first video that came up credit account 'cause I forgot my previous password was a if Tiktok it's banned. Here's how to get around it. You don't Vpn you can go into the settings, your phone, change your country of origin to Canada and then You're great. Exactly I mean it's not enforceable basically So I mean one thing Leo I think. Matt and I would probably agree that we do need to. I don't know if it's more oversight from the point of sale like on the APP store or Google play I I don't know if it's kind of an External Code audit policy for these kinds of APPs on their own by countries I. Think we agree we we need more oversight and we need to make sure all of these are not stealing data from people and just to get people very brief history lesson you know Edward Snowden had some very serious allegations about our own spying agencies using. Facebook to gather intelligence on people all around the world there's evidence for that. There's no hard evidence at this point the Tiktok is doing any of this. So if we're serious about doing this, the answer isn't to further balkanize the United States from the rest of the world the answers to form coalitions with other countries say look if you're going to operate here in, you know if you're gonNA have the software operating in our country here, the rule you have to follow you can't just arbitrarily download people's Phone books, there's going to be You know civil fights. That's clearly the way to go is got to be bigger than just tiktok. I'm just looking at Tick Tock on my iphone. It has access to my photos because I gave it access to my photo so I could put a profile picture on there. it gives me notifications I could turn that off. That's that's a push though that's not a poll. Background APP refresh means it can run in the background and cellular data doesn't ask for. location data doesn't ask for I mean facebook asks for ten times more. That's why I don't have it on my phone. I. mean the worst thing Tiktok does is waste millions of hours a productivity, and maybe that's a recent ban I don't know. But I, just I don't understand how it could be used. If it's not getting location permissions, how could it be used maliciously and I think it is getting location position. I know that I've know anecdotally at least from a couple of friends whenever they let's say go to Connecticut to visit family or something they will suddenly get Connecticut. Themed Tiktok content or something similar. Okay. that could just be from. Connection you can get that from the IP address so they could get a Geo location through IP address without asking APP without telling apple that they're doing that that would make sense. Okay. So they're getting them. Every cannon probably, I hate to say it probably does do that.

Fresh update on "first things first" discussed on WBSM 1420 Programming
"Evening, 5 40 on the Fox Business Network and for our triumvirate off rogues of Ronan's people who do things a little bit differently. How many guests have we had in studio? My gosh, Today he is Scott Pressler. He goes by the nom de guerre of hashtag. Of the persistence, not resistance, persistence, and he is famous for Doing things a little bit differently when it comes to supporting the President Scott, Welcome to America First. I'm thrilled to be here in the Gorgon layer the war room. Have you got your cowboy boots? I dio And these are you Last time I saw you back the blue No, hold them up to that can't want to see the front back. A lot of cool cowboy boots. That's probably the coolest. All right. We'll talk about where you got those later. No free commercials here in America first love those boots so we could just we have to have you back for a long, long discussion. But first things first, you're doing some amazing things to make sure the president wins in 96 days. We'll talk about what you're doing in terms of uttering registration. But you really caught the imagination of the American people when you decided to do something very simple across America, starting in a city not far from here. What was the crazy idea? You had, Scott? Well, you know, our president brought national attention to the city of Baltimore, and he tweeted about it. And, you know, I was really disappointed our government because I saw everybody kind of pointing the finger they were blaming. They were scapegoating somebody else and I thought to myself, Why is nobody trying to do something solve the problem, right? So I tweeted out to my followers and said, Okay, I'm going to the city of Baltimore. Even if it's me standing on the street corner, picking up trash, and Dr Gorka, I didn't realize what I had done because I unleashed the floodgate and suddenly people from all across the country we sing. Scott, What can I do to help you? And then I was just e. Just go on cleaning myself. Yes. Are you from Baltimore? So I looked at the Fairfax, Virginia. So you're not even from there? What happened? Oh, we were welcomed in six days. We got 200 volunteers on a Monday a work day to pick up 12 tons of trash and tiles. In one day, 12 tons 12 times in one day, 12 hours. Okay, stunning, however. Not everybody was happy with, you know, there were a couple of people that were unhappy. In fact, they want you cleaning up more. Bolton was not cleaning itself. Thank you. You're doing it for free, right for free and active love. Yes. So what's the problem? Scott? Well, I I would leave that to the city of Baltimore, which denied us permits for dumpsters. I mean to say that again. They denied us permits for dumpsters. And I said, Okay, I'm going to go do it anyway. And the Baltimore Sun they wrote a scathing editorial questioning my motives for coming to town. Questioning Why Scott Presley was coming to clean up tragedies. There must be some great ulterior mow me cleaning up Baltimore. Clearly, I don't know. Give you a free TV, so bags of money from the Ukraine must have dropped from the sky or China or something. My only real reason. Scott, why did you have multiple well, the real reason why was attacked is because it was political. The real reason why I did. It is because I'm an Eagle Scout.

Reopening Schools Amid COVID-19: What to Expect This Fall
"There any way to have in person instruction in schools this fall for with some number of students for you know some number of days a week in certain parts of the country what what is the outlook for that? Yeah. I look. I've got two young kids in school and working with schools and other people across the country. Let let me just say one thing at a on the. Top. There is no for for also we we just do not understand enough about this virus in children T- period, and so to say that we do to be candidates arrogant we just don't know enough having said that Josh I think that there are going to be ways to do what I would say hybrid I. Certainly think that if you're in one of the thirty nine states that's experiencing these surges and. Reverse and trends you really should be thinking about remote learning in the next four to six weeks meaning you should not be sending your children in person and especially as we're doing more testing of younger children and adults I think that we are going to see even more cases that cause us to pause on personal learning but there are going to be regions where you see incredibly low rates and they are. Consistent with a decrease in growth in some parts, and you could consider some sort of learning. It will look different and it will not be fulltime education which leaves working parents such as myself in a lurch. So that's one issue. But from an educational standpoint, there will be ways to do this smaller CA-. It's all the things we haven't really done in education. So we'll have to try it's new smaller cohorts. risk-based, not just thermal testing because that's only gonNA, help you so much when it's one hundred degrees in Arizona but having some sort of symptom assessment knowing that children might not have any symptoms and be positive. So we're going to a- I absolutely enforce either masks or some sort of alternative face shields and we just need to get comfortable with that I. think adults are less comfortable than children are and they will adapt their incredibly adaptive. So I do think it's possible but I will say Josh I'm troubled time I talked with school whether it's a large public school in a superintendent or a small private school principal. All of them have unanimously said, we have had no contact with our local health departments. They're too busy and it's too hard to create that connection and without that connection Josh I fear that we will end up making things

Rabiu is our guest for this episode and she says, she decided to make a career in ice cream when she started to think about being an adult who needed to have a job and how to have a job that feels like fun at least most of the time I realized that I was GonNa say signed working and I wanted to do some that enjoyed doing. So I went to culinary school and we learned how to make ice cream like in a machine, their small machine but I really enjoyed the process and the different things you could add to it and fell in love with it and just decided. That if I was GonNa do something for myself long-term. I wanted to be ice cream because I from my childhood even now to adult Abulat fond memories that include ice cream and I wanted to be a part of that for families and friends in people that I know and don't know into you know old a special place in their heart through. What makes your ice cream special will I I? It's delicious Zeiss Grievous but we make it all by hand. So it's all small batch make more than like four gallons at a time because of the machine and have. We do Vegetarian Gluten Free Vegan. We're working on some sugar free. So we're doing our best to make sure that we can accommodate everybody's lifestyles, dietary restrictions and slipped Reggie with cool Sitri and then ownership wise. We are black women and we're on what kind of edge does that give you that another shot might not have for us it's very important that we make people feel. Safe and inclusive and accepted because the things that we've both had issues with. Throughout our own lives, we want everybody to be able to come into the shop. We matter what they look like at identify as who they you know whatever they're going through we want them to feel safe to come and enjoy. Ice Cream cookie with themselves with whomever they desire and. Feel like that space is there's Well. That's cool. Because everybody should be able to enjoy ice cream. Absolutely. Absolutely. That's exactly. It's also the way a lot of our young listeners field. So let's hear some of your questions. Hello I'M CHARLOTTE I'll leave in Australia Newcastle and Fluffy so deny. To, learn how to Mike US Cream. I names ULA years old from Nova Scotia Canada, and I'm wondering how does not turn into ice cream? Hi May name is May and flavors up, and my question is holidays came made ice cream sounds like it's just cold cream, but there's a little more to it. So what is ice cream? So ice cream is defined as a frozen dairy dessert. That basically has air like incorporated into it while it's freezing because while the air. So the basis of it is usually heavy cream milk. Sometimes I'd guilt not always use sugar and then whatever your flavorings are gonna be. So we basically he'd all those things up together bring him to a point where all of our ron greedier become safe to eat. Whole it down and then. Put it into machine which we refer to as a batch freeze there that we would turn on as a cylinder on inside so that ice cream is spinning as getting cold. So while we incorporate air that ice cream, if you will you get basically this fluffy creamy product because when you mix. Hold an air milk. You get that texture that we all know as ice cream if it didn't spin around if you didn't get the air into it, would it just be like a block of ice to ascend? So does going to save. You don't put the air intuit things that we also know popsicles if you've ever had like a fudgesicle which is the icy but still cold that is what would happen if you didn't pump that air into it so that if you wanNA sound fancy, we referred to that freezing as. Simply. Frozen. So quietly frozen basically freezes. In like a period of inactivity.
And They Will Inherit It
"The film, salt of the Earth was made only a year or so after the strike and released in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, it tells the story of our group of Mexican American miners to Ghana. Powerful mining company to demand their rights their fifteen month long strike includes some unexpected heroes and we'll explain that soon. But I you need to understand how radical the film was for the Nineteen Fifties. Politicians at the time were determined to root out secret communists from Hollywood. There were even public interrogation of filmmakers. Are you now have you ever been a member of the? Communist Party, this is audio of the interrogation of filmmaker Herbert Bieber Bearman in front of the House UNAMERICAN activities committee. To use this to. The motion, picture industry and. The Right? Not only be be Berman ended up serving time in prison and was blacklisted in Hollywood because of his suspected communist sympathies, and then he made salt of the Earth along with two other men who also been blacklisted. It seems pretty clear that salt of the Earth was an act of defiance. The government had sanctioned the filmmakers for his sympathies. So they made a movie that was unapologetically leftist. In one thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, four, the film was so controversial, only a few theaters across the US would show it. Salt of the Earth was essentially buried from public sight for decades. But in one thousand, nine, hundred seventies, she gano and feminist movements embraced the Phil. They saw it as an example of what social justice movements could actually look like. In two, thousand, eighteen producer. Traveled to Grant County New Mexico to uncover the story of what would come to be called the Empire Zinc strike.

"How durable can he be at this stage of his career. Can you depend on him to play sixteen games and if you lose him or get him nick. They don't have any other slot receiver so to me. It's a tremendous challenge of how they're going to look at it this way. The sixty five plays what's the most effective way for us to move the ball down the field realizing those two phases of the game. We're gonna have we're gonna be real good special teams. They're always very good. <hes> and their defense is going to be very good so thinking that they're going to play a game with a lot of risk drop. Tom brady back forty five times and allow him him to take a pounding with a suspect offensive line with a number of questions. No that's not how they're going to do it. They realize those other parts of their game are very very strong and what they're going to do is try to figure out in the first month of the season. What's the best way for us to build to win. A singular giller football game compared to what's the theme of this season. No they're going to go month to month week by week. Trying to figure out you know something. This is the best way to get through this and then when they get to the playoffs. They'll start thinking about that. They're not like dallas taken about talking about the playoffs before the regular season starts starts. They don't even know what type of team but the question marks. They are real. It's not just because the new england that were questioning them and i believe they'll prove out in the first four weeks and the question marks were amplified this week with the news. David andrews there senator guy who's started every game for the last few years being out potentially intially for the season with the very scary blood clots in his lungs but the x. factor for them is not that dissimilar than the x factor for them that we saw early on and last season joined the team and that's josh gordon. Josh gordon a thought last week when i was out you guys were outstanding and talking about josh gordon and his story but josh gordon the football player himself when he was on the field for new england. I won't be able to understand how productive he was. Only does shawn jackson average more yards per catch last year than josh gordon at eighteen point zero the guys that in the league the full list of guys in the league that has many receiving yards yards is josh gordon and averaged even sixteen yards per catch and again he was eighteen. That's tyler lockett to hilton tyreek hill. Mike evans sean jackson axon. Those are a short list of some of your best deep threats in football. There was a reason that even after last year when josh had another unfortunate issue issue. The patriots held onto his rights. The patriots supported him hoping to get him back into the fold because if josh gordon can be that credible <music> outside threat that he was once in brady got on the same page last year that adds a totally different dynamic to the offense even if the offense wants to be run oriented anted even if vitamins going to get.

The falcons star receiver said he wouldn't hold out this season because team owner arthur blank. Thank promise they'd get a deal done now. Blankets holding true to that saying deal with julio will be done before week one see. How important is it for the falcons to get this done. Oh they're going to get it done. I talked to julio a few weeks ago at the hall of fame game mattie is they're ready for the season. Julio said i'm patient so it might not not be before the first game but him mr blank have worked out a little situation but mr blaine got plenty of money run out of breath before arthur blank runs out of money and this is the the ideal player owner relationship where you have a player who the team went out and got if you remember them. They traded a bunch to move all the way up in the top five draft julio. He's been paid early every time he's outplayed his contract every time and now that he has faith. It's gonna get done so he's. He's a huge drawl in that region not only play high school football close their airplanes college football there at alabama and in atlanta it is s._e._c. crazy about college football if they love their falcons so he's a big draw there for or mr blake all right moving on washington left tackle trent williams remains a hold out an has asked to be traded head coach. Jay gruden very strongly doubts that williams will actually really be traded nick. How do you think this plays out. There are few teams across the n._f._l. Maybe most notably the houston texans that if they haven't called up and tried to pry him away. I don't know what they're doing and i don't know what washington is doing being seemingly so obstreperous. If you will about the the refusal to trade i wouldn't think of another word i apologize belligerent think of another word. I apologize soon as i said as soon as i said loyd. Is this hold hold on a second. Why is he. This isn't just about money. He thinks that he had a legitimate medical misdiagnosis. Yeah he's made a bunch of money. He's a proud man and he's saying i will not play for you so i don't think he's gonna lose staring contest. Take what you can get for trent williams. You'll be happy houston.

"The player he once was but still had something left and said ah i can keep playing football. I'm gonna keep playing football as long as i possibly can so i get why zeke would want to do this and in his interview with without saying it i think he is saying he's acknowledging. Some of the point stephen jerry of made which is there are some benefits to being a dallas cowboy spe particularly being a lifelong dallas cowboy. Oh boy that other franchises can offer you. It's why chris talks about all the time troy emmett and michael irvin all still make their homes in dallas that the cachet ashtray of that organization and being considered a lifelong cowboy even if the into your career you catch on somewhere else like nobody cares the jerry rice played for the seahawks seahawks and the raiders and think of him as a san francisco. Nobody thinks of chris carter's anything other than the eagle briefly in the beginning but a viking people think of you as a viking even though you played moment with the dolphins with that new helmet and everybody else in my body workout but nobody in so you see a hutu key malaysia play for the rock. It's not the raptors even though technically he did so the last couple of years of career notwithstanding i do believe zeke wants to be a dallas cowboy through the prime and after the prime of his career and i think that's community knows what the dallas cowboys offer him as far as a home for the next couple years but i'm sure jerry jones also knows when he gets from zeke. This is as we call him a once in a lifetime running back. I mean one of these really really great athletes. Who you know was going to deliver. Who you know has been a winner for you. How much is this jerry's pride. He knows post football. You talk about how much he knows the game. He knows how much he needs him. Is there a little bit of pride that sort of working its way in here. You don't become a multi-billionaire without some some type of pry but jerry will tell you. I love the game at the beginning of the day in the end of the game. He loves football. It's been part of his blood for a long long time and he feels like he understands football but the one t- understands is the product and the product. He's got out there on the field. He realized the best player is still in mexico when their chances they want the hostal embody already trophy. They have no chances without ezekiel. Jerry knows that he hadn't expressed that verbally but he knows that so. I believe that a deal will get worked out because because jerry but jerry is a tough tough negotiator and he's willing to stare down anyone and that's what they're going to have a showdown staredown you so you know there in dallas and real quick wanna revisit something you said yesterday you put basically one week from today as the drop dead date for this to get done for zeke to be able to play week one correct that it's not done by tuesday of the first week of the season he wouldn't be able to play week one gin and i were discussing this before the show can use explain explain to the audience again why you think even that position or running back couldn't sign on a thursday night and play that sunday from a game plan standpoint..

"And say i'm gonna choose to take a healthier approach to this. How much change is now with the direction that this team moves in because nick put played out the timeline august. I he tells jim irsay right. I told peter your king on august fourth. I'm going to be there week one and august nineteenth he tells them so. It's not a ton of time for the organization to get jacoby set up and running but how much changes if you're the head coach of team where you had one plan where your your team is in conversation for super bowl talk and now you're in a completely different print direction how much has to get changed and how quickly well. This is a unique situation because he hasn't played so it's been jacoby percents team and there is the value value of of jacoby having a whole season as a starter so through o._t._a.'s through training camp. It's been percents. The operation been all with percents so you've got that body of work that you can build on in terms of of of approaching and and how dramatically you're gonna have to change the system. It's pretty dramatic because you've got to make make things work for jacoby. You've got to give jacoby everything that he needs to be successful and there's a big part of that playbook that was luck the majority any of his what does andrew like now that has to go away and it it's what does jacoby like and a point that you made earlier just about the the young in part of of andrew luck's career. I think this is always the debate that we have about whether you should play a rookie or not play rookie because they don't know how to protect themselves all the time so so even got a guy like kyla murray behind an offensive line that that's you know struggling. He's young and he's going to take chances because he's young. That's gonna lead to certain hits and this may be a topic for a later time but it's maturing process for those young quarterbacks. That's part of this whole discussion in and why we got here as well. They haven't been able to do a fool off season study this off season. You know what they studied. How well it offensive line was. How can i add a running. How can we help that defense now. They don't have that opportunity because their new quarterback. They have a lot of confidence in them but they didn't get a chance to build a breakdown everything because he didn't play much last year so now now. How do they go back to seventeen find the things that worked for them so for me. This is going to be an extended training camp four to six weeks finding out what jacoby likes what he wants to do best how to get the team around that as far as offense of line and running attack before they moved forward. I still believe that they are a playoff team because this is a talented talented well did roster that defensive front can come up and be more consistent with their linebackers in their second. <hes> secondary did i believe is underrated and we'll be better this season yeah. This is the legitimate playoff team sure andrew. Luck is waking up this morning going wait what happened this weekend. I did what he's got a little bit now.

You can't simulate that yeah. You can push a sled. You can put gordon harness but human interaction. No you can't simulate that marshall but they're doing the right thing. Marshall faulk is a good guy for him to be around to get him ready but he node owed. You need a couple of games before you start getting used to getting your body built up for that contract. This is a position in zeke's at an age that i do think that he's going to win. He does return to the cowboys. I don't think falen conditioning tests. I don't think that his he's going to be slower but to chris's point marshall fox point he's going to have been training by himself has opposed to as opposed to having people pull him to the ground so that will of course take a bit of an unjust we can't take for granted practices import and that's why we have more injuries to the less contact with this new era of flares.

But also in other professions in reading more about this this is a lot of players talked about how they wanna let down their parents or coaches who'd been with them since they were little kids and it was just the path that they follow. They knew no other way you play here you playing college college and then hopefully you get drafted. It's what we talked about. Were wicky williams. You just didn't love football and i think when he walked away. We were kinda surprised well. How do you not love the rookies rookies on one end of the spectrum. I think grunk deed and does love football but he got to appoint to where he didn't need it anymore so i think there's different syrup people that we'll play until multiple teams until they get caught then. Go try out again. There's ricky williams on the other end of the spectrum not sure exactly where grunk falls but he clearly at the moment feels like he got what he came here. I think ricky williams love football ricky. Williams love team sports ricky. Williams couldn't deal with being in society. He had he has yes. That was his biggest problem. My first day i played my last year with the dolphins. I ricky williams man. He was a pleasure as a teammate. No absolutely so no there's different various reasons but if he could have dealt with it in controlled is anxiety socially. I believe he would have a long career because he loved again but the pain that gronk talks about part of the harsh realities reminder of it that come with playing the game of football. Take a break coming up. We'll cam newton be ready to play week one against the rams. That's next on at this one. You can always check us out on the fox sports channels on sirius x._m. We'll be right back in just a second but first slow pro basketball in france jay stephens with the trampoline elaine boom man. Why is he playing in france. I mean that is nice. He's eight timing on that rebound. I mean that was elite. His face was at the rim. I china's practice practice now. Daniel jones dropping a nice time to bennie fowler who manages to keep both feet in bounds. I was out of town during the daniel. Danny dimes phenomenon last week.

"The other part that i took away from that was he mentioned that after the super bowl he was in tears two years of joy but out of pain and that for the month following the super bowl he had trouble sleeping more than twenty minutes getting out of bed and it was because of a hit that i feel like i've seen rob gronkowski take a hundred times in his career. This didn't seem like any out of the ordinary play. I mean that's a bad hit on his lower collegue but i feel like we have seen grunk. Take that type of punishment. I feel like you see that type of punishment regularly in an n._f._l. Game and the reason that i it it stuck out to me was because i think the average fan the viewer has a hard time realizing even a play like that the level of brutality the lasting impact the level of damage can do so tell people because he did describe that they had to actually take out a thousand milliliters of blood blood from just from that one hit. I'm over the course of a couple of months. It just drained as you're describing any talked about how he had trouble for weeks sleeping more than twenty minutes at a time and while on replay you see it. He gets hit really solidly writing this quad but it didn't that wasn't a hit that during the game i think anyone said oh my god is he gonna come back on the field and he of course continued to play and continued to go out and make the single biggest play of that game so i understand why for for gronk if after winning another super bowl you are in pain instead of enjoy why you might say this isn't fun for me anymore and i don't think think it's coincidental that we've now in the last five years had four separate guys who at different times in their rookie contracts were considered potential ensure future all timers in patrick willis calvin johnson rob gronkowski and andrew luck all said you know what at least for the time being saying. I got what i came here for. I got enough money enough memories enough of the two combined that i can now step away because is if you are that caliber of player by the time you get to your second contract. You do have the type of financial security that gives you the ability then if you have lost the passion or a football is no longer fun for you that you can move on so. I don't think it's going to be a long list of guys but i don't don't think that andrew luck and gronk and those guys are going to be the end of players who feel like wow. Their careers ended four or five years earlier than we would expect one thing we can't do. We can't assume that all these football players love football. There's a difference in loving football in love and the benefits football and typically when you get to a certain mark if you get to that mark financially you can walk away from the game so to say that all these guys the football was not out of them. I've been too many locker rooms is it i know it varies into degrees that people love football and how much they wanna win and how much they want to sacrifice and you can believe with the amount of money. That's in the game. You're not we'll see in the n._b._a. Because you can play in the n._b._a. It's easy like you can't get hurt the way you can get be hurt in fail and they allow the veteran players with the guaranteed contracts to build a milk out those last few years n._f._l. You can't do the grunt can't go out and be a special teams player..

"The last couple years when they have had tied for the second. Most wins tied tied for the most wins in the n._f._l. They've had a league average defense to go along with. Chris said always a great offense withdrew breezy middle. The offense changed a bit with ingram and camara mirror being a more run central goffin's. I do think this saints team has an argument. That is the most complete team in the n._f._l. We have seen in that dome with that coach coach and that quarterback if they have a top fifteen defense there in the game for a super bowl if they have a top ten deep and they can become super bowl favorites if they get enough pass rushers off the edge. They've spent a big investment on their secondary as far as being able to play nickel having three competent corners pass rushers plus that corner play thing for some turnovers turnovers and play well in a very tough division. I trust the offense as much as any offense in the n._f._c. All right you mentioned the defense. You mentioned the tight ends. No one's worried about ingram not being there does that not is now in fact during that in the reason from a formation standpoint kamar carried the bar a lot more and more touches seventy four touches in year number two that progression russian. He's always been the specialty back. He's a little undersized slightly built. I don't want to see him carried the ball three hundred times so i believe also latavius murray comes over as a free agent a big back from minnesota should be able to assume some of that pounding so watch how many times he touches the ball kenny be sufficient shen as an undersized running back when you bump up those touches but i believe from scheme standpoint. They're going to try to duplicate what they did. The first eleven weeks of the season drew brees. I eleven weeks best q._b._r. In the n._f._l. Struggle in the plum week twelve through the playoffs his around mill to pack. I think around twelfth ranked in quarterback so trying to continue what they got up to a blazing start last season all right. Let's take a break coming up.

"It's it's something that you understand. I must do on the way to this so Tom Brady's planning to trickle in his mind like any person that does something for a long time. He makes it more important every single day but when Tom Brady is running out there to the field there's a certain amount of kid like joy but there's a certain amount of professionalism that takes over I must do this. This is a huge part of of being a great player and he's mastered that the greatest master the ugly parts of their profession and it becomes just something else that they must do but there's no way Tom Brady enjoys training camp. That's just flat out lot. It's impossible. I think to your point I think Michael Strahan one said if it wasn't for training camp if we could just skip it. I probably would have played an extra couple of seasons. I'm sure a lot of guys playing a longtime say the same thing all right. Let's take a break coming up could Ezekiel Elliott's holdout dragged into the regular season. That's next on first since I got a great heavyweight battle for you. Coming up on Saturday as Brooklyn's unbeaten atom of Nazi takes takes on Chris Arreola Saturday eight eastern five Pacific on Fox sports. I don't know what you mean. We are now going viral here. You're on first things first Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer one of the most sought after pitchers in the M._l._B. Trade market right now however yesterday he got lit it up and was pulled after allowing eight runs in four innings and when Terry Francona came to the mound to pull on Bauer show just a little bit of emotion emotion watch this he turns and fires in thankfully through it against the board so there was nobody in the seats there to get hit with but you don't you don't do that with your managers interest coming out. It's disrespectful so Frank Kunas going. What the heck was that broncos bad skip? I'm sorry and he goes go grab some pine. I'm GonNa see you a little bit and so he's he's in the principal's office right now and then let them deal with it but the royals they frustrated him they got some big hits on some of his best pitches and so got to go barriers a crazy guy I mean prior to this. We knew bowers a little bit crazy. Guy Yankees may be considering trading for him especially especially now since stroman went to the mets oddly enough but this is. I know it's on the takeaway. That's a hell of a throw man that thing win belt three hundred eighty feet in the air that teddy through clearing the Centerfield Wall. Oh Yeah I thought I was glad that Terry Francona check them because I know Terry from our days over another network and everything that's the kind of person is because he said the what was that <hes> go sit over there on the bench liked that aspect because very few times especially at that level. Are you going to see the manager respond that a- and I've never seen a pitcher to that in re. Oh you're going to take the ball on my hands. We'll get through. He was mad man. It also wasn't his like he had a center fielder DRP. nope fly ball yet an error on the thing some bad look let some pie right in the middle of the game.

"Catch it all on the Fox Sports app back here. First things first we'll get to Steelers and saints in second. But I watch the tackle from falcons kicker Matt Bosscher on Kenyan Barner this. I mean, this was an energy play for Atlanta right after this. They actually started playing really well after this play go as this might be the most impressive special teams tackle by a kicker or upon. I'm willing to bring some other videos takes off the ground and slam too. To build a seed and the wrath give them a little room for taunting to stand over flexes automob-, it he couldn't believe it. Did it eagles Texans? It feels like every Monday. We're talking about a great catch by Andre Hopkins. Well, it's Monday. And there's another great catch by day on dre Hopkins. That's why he has the best hands in the business. You can throw with anywhere when they talk about catch radius man, they have is pitcher near as far as low high one hand or he's a special special I receive and he went into the locker room during pregame warmups. They weren't sure if he was going to play he played great the whole game. So this game to Shawn Watson break in about thirty separate tackles there throws a dart to keep the drive alive. If the Texans could have held on to win because this was part of a thirteen point comeback right here. This would have been one of the better plays the entire NFL season. By a quarterback DeShaun Watson was spectacular. Third and Levin men everyone depending on him to make a play. Makes three guys miss and that Philadelphia rush and delivers a strike down. Impressive. What he did late yesterday? The eagles made eagles fans very happy today. We'll talk more about that. Finally chief Seahawks Doug Baldwin with this spectacular one handed. Catch Doug ball when get into done late in the game. Don't need to get the pass in fairness. They would have gotten the ball inside the ten yard line because you want to catch here Doug, Baldwin finishes. All great game run some great routes after really struggled with injuries throughout the season. They are different offense when Doug Baldwin this healthy Pete Carroll trust. Russell Wilson so much man late in the game. They're already in field goal range. They a couple of our sounds run out the clock. Now, let him throw it deep. Doug, Baldwin made the play I fan tastic game in New Orleans yesterday is the Steelers were trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. We pick this up in the fourth quarter fourth and five Steelers up for they call a fake punt on their own forty two and they come up about a yard. Short. So the saints come in Jiu breeze methodically. Worked the ball down the field while eating up the clock. And not surprisingly capping off a drive with a great catch from Michael Thomas that put the saints up thirty one to twenty eight. Yeah. That was a touchdown. Big day for Thomas posted eleven catches one hundred nine yards. Steelers would have one last chance forty-one seconds left juju Smith Schuster makes the catch. But he is stripped and that is the game. This is the third time in December. The Steelers have lost by three points. They now need a lot of help. If they're gonna make the playoffs. Here is what juju Smith Schuster had to say about that costly fumble after the game..
